    Interesting. This, like the Harvard article on GET I just posted, also came up in "New links on MedLine Plus" today, but the article itself says last updated May 26, 2009.

    Looks like they need to do some updating of information at Harvard.

    Can't believe this is Harvard - where have they been all these years ? As to being a mysterious illness I've one suggestion - try it.

    Better than in years past, but still disgusting misinformation. Harvard Medical School: your trusted source for iatrogenic morbidity.

    CAA should have been targeting all of these sources of misinformation over the years instead of putting out their own. We need a concerted organized campaign to do this. If/when I get somewhat better I would really like to do some of that. If anyone can start one up, please go for it!
