ME/CFS and the Magic of the Canine Factor
There's been plenty of research indicating that having pets is good for your health. I never really noticed any particular benefits to having cats, though that may have had more to do with my cats. They've been fairly indifferent to my presence and we've shared a live-and-let-live...

    Both of these are superb - highly recommended.

    BTW, I'd be curious to know what all those countries are where people are donating! A little Facebook item there, maybe.

    Great story here on FB:

    I see Norwegian blogger Jorgen Jelstad has covered the crowdfunding campaign - please give him some traffic (I hope you'll get an auto-translation!) - here's the start:

    I've written a lot about the scientist Ian Lipkin involvement in ME / CFS on this blog lately , and it's simply because never before has a more prominent researcher inserted impetus to find the answer to ME - Riddle . Columbia University 's Center for Infection and Immunity are among the world leaders in their field, and Lipkin is more than the greeting with almost all the most important people in the U.S. healthcare system. Having such a person involved fully in ME research is one of the most important event in the field throughout its history .

    Read the blog post about what Lipkin says about their preliminary findings in ME / CFS field.

    But not Lipkin is immune to the chronic cash shortage in ME research. A private foundation spat into NOK 60 million over three years, but also the money bag approaching being empty . Research costs . In a blog interview Lipkin says that when he applied for funding to continue ME research , he was devastated by the bad review process was on the field , and the professionals who assessed the applications clearly was not competent to do so. To put it like that, Ian Lipkin applied research many times before in connection with other projects for other diseases , and it is hardly normal that he experiences the assessment process in the way he did at the ME field.​

    Well, we keep plugging away, and it's good to see the $, and especially the number of donors, keep rising...albeit slowly. It's frustrating to me to see it going so slowly, but we've got to keep plugging away and hope we reach a tipping point. I want to thank the team for keeping it visible, and working as hard as you obviously have. I think the "blogs" were a great idea. Thank you all, and know that what you're doing is appreciated.
