    Sten Helmfrid (senior lecturer/associate professor in physics) and Johan Edsberg (medical doctor) recently published a couple of articles on ME/CFS in the Swedish Medical journal Läkartidningen. They criticise a book chapter on ME/CFS with a strong biopsychosocial bias.
    The articles have already been mentioned in another thread, but I think this definitely deserves its own thread :)

    The main article has now been translated to English, and is available on ResearchGate.

    @Grigor , there has been no secret that Sten Helmfrid is diagnosed with ME/CFS himself. I don´t know about Edsberg, but both are members of the Swedish organization for ME-patients, RME.se, and are doing a great job.
