Can You Come for a Visit? My ME/CFS Says No
My daughter and son-in-law just had a baby last week. We are thrilled. But we won't be able to see the baby or hold her any time soon. We won't be able to take over little gifts or help out with housework or babysitting.

    ""Serious doubt has been cast on the theory that... chronic fatigue syndrome is caused by a new retrovirus," The Guardian reported. The newspaper said researchers from London have failed to replicate findings from the US that suggested a possible role for a virus called XMRV in causing CFS, also known as ME.."

    Simon Wessely's colleague, Ben Goodacre, works for the Guardian, a newspaper that only presents the Wessely school of thought on M.E.

    XMRV+ UK patients in the Science Journal cohort

    The Guardian article fails to mention that a number of the Science article's XMRV + individuals came from the U.K. :( This fact alone throws a different light on the conclusion. Is there a right of reply to this biased piece of journalism?

    Just noticed that this article was last updated on Jan 6th. Dr Judy announced on the 22nd that her study included a number from the UK. Have any of our scientifically minded folk the energy to reply to this outdated article?
