Review: 'Through the Shadowlands’ describes Julie Rehmeyer's ME/CFS Odyssey
I should note at the outset that this review is based on an audio version of the galleys and the epilogue from the finished work. Julie Rehmeyer sent me the final version as a PDF, but for some reason my text to voice software (Kurzweil) had issues with it. I understand that it is...

German / Austrian News Coverage

Discussion in 'Media, Interviews, Blogs, Talks, Events about XMRV' started by Leitwolf, Aug 25, 2010.

    Here is the German list:
    Utmost idiocy in the well reknown "die Welt". The theadline says at it all: "Good night". An article over sleep disorders and the possible link to a Virus that might cause chronic "tiredness"...
    unexited standard news coverage. Tells a few plain facts, without going any deeper into the matter,1518,713473,00.html
    The "Spiegel" earned itself a lot of bad reputation by calling CFS a disease "sent from heaven", giving the undiserved sick so much leisure and social welfare. Just recently they reported how easily CFS patients could be cured, praising GET:
    "Little by little distant aims move closer: falling into bed after an exhausting day and waking up the next day, fully recovered, fit, powerful and full of drive"
    ..just a very few words
    Question: do viruses cause chronic tiredness??
    Acceptable article that goes awefully wrong at the end. They question Dr. Robin Weiss of the imperial college in London and he straightens out the XMRV mystery: it is a "human rumor virus"

    and the Austrian list:
    (end of list)

    No, so far not a single news coverage in the totally corrupted republica delas bananas Austria ;-)

    Doesn't look a piece bether in Switzerland. No article.
    I wonder what they are doing in Switzerland cause in 2008 federal court decided that CFS and Fibro are purly mind based. If you think you are fine you're getting bether...
    I've actually no Idea how the Illness in Switzerland can be accepted after such a decission... :Retro mad:

    you're right, the older spiegel article was ridiculous, but to be fair: The *current* Spiegel article is okay. The headline reads "Fatigue Syndrome: Growing Suspicion towards Viruses"
