Defeatism is undermining evidence that chronic fatigue syndrome can be treated: Reading this piece, I thought reading the title that perhaps our british doctors had a change of heart. But no!!! They want us all to do CBT and GET. This is really insulting and annoying. What kind of evidence do they get that indeed CBT and GET works?:ashamed: British Medical Journal Editors, please read the recent studies from Lombardi, and all the evidence that has accumulated over the years that ME/CFS is an organic disease. Please open your mind to the possibility of a retrovirus. Imperial College had a biased perspective and different scientific techniques and failed to find XMRV in any of their 186 samples. Does it mean they are right? Obviously not, because there are some XMRV + patients in LK already, and somebody out there is donating blood not knowing they are infected with this retrovirus. May Lynn and Sophia's deaths have not been in vain. It's time for serious research now.
