And what about this strange comment Doesn't this suggest that Dr. Vernon should be trusted? That she was not part of the CDC cabal? Apparently not - still Hillary states that CAA DNA is merged with CDC DNA. The woman had just said she was appalled at all that! No mercy from Hillary Johnson. And of course no mention of all the good science the CAA is funding - the science that could only go to lock in this diseases legitimacy. I did like this That rang true! I think this is true too I'm not saying the CAA is perfect; we need more aggressive voices - we need more radical actions. I've been saying that for a long time but this is unfair We have a difference in strategy - not a group selling out patients. I don't know why she doesn't get that. Why she has to go the demonization route - the sellout theme. The CAA didn;t get rich from the CDC; they did a job for them and while they made compromises they also got access to millions of dollars of govt funds for the media campaign. They could have shrieked and stayed poor or compromised to some extent and got the word out that CFS is a serious illness. It sounds good - we'll see how far that goes; the govts history of scientific fraud and corruption.....we should have both actually - weepy human interest stories and organizations that dig into the underbelly of the government (which I will mention one last time - the CAA actually did recently). Here is pure Hillary - an interesting and debatable point followed by in which she goes way too far once again. And the whole thing about Suzanne Vernon. Suzanne Vernon IS working hard. She IS funding good research. She IS trying to create an International Network that should speed up CFS research. But since she's from the CDC she's dirt in Hilary Johnson's world.....Does that do any of us good? Really?
