Never Ask Us if We're Hungry -- The Answer's Always No
There are three of us here and for many years, none of us ever got hungry. When our brains would turn to mush, when our faces would go numb, and we would start the invisible vibration which is the signature dance of ME/CFS, we knew we needed to eat.

    Interesting article, thank you for posting. I believe that most diseases are connected to the gut.

    This looks like good news but is anyone else a little concerned that big pharma will find a way to patent bacteria ?

    Although we don't yet have big pharma putting up the cost for such large studies in ME/CFS, at least we are fortunate enough to have Lipkin looking there for us. There is huge potential here and if we can show a possible link, as has been done in UC, then big pharma will become interested.
