The Real ME: A Stock Photography Resource for the Media
We’ve all seen them in the news stories about ME/CFS: the guy in a suit at the office, yawning; the beautiful woman sitting at her desk with her immaculate make-up and elegantly coiffed hair, hand to her head and looking slightly pained.

    This is being sent on behalf of Professor Hooper.

    "In view of the content of the "Health Report" broadcast that was hosted by Dr Norman Swan on Australian radio (ABC Radio National) and the comments of Richard Horton, Editor-in-Chief of The Lancet, Professor Hooper has decided to place his complaint in the public domain forthwith so that people can read it for themselves and form their own judgment.

    It is important to make very clear that ME/CFS is not a somatoform disorder but a serious multi-system organic disease."

    Prof. Hooper included an appendix of quotes from the offending parties. I've read lots of quotes by these criminals, but some of these were new to me and they are really bad and worth reading. If you have any doubt they are waging a war on ME patients and science, please read the following:

    Thanks daisymay and justin - so glad to see in the public domain. Just shows what we are up against still in the UK despite all the years of scientific (real) and findings internationally. Why we have to wait for the named idiots to pull themselves out of the middle ages history will tell. At the expense of the health of thousands over decades here alone.
