New era for ME/CFS research as top cytokine study attracts media headlines
The immune systems of patients who have recently developed ME/CFS look markedly different from those who have been ill for much longer, according to a major new study from Drs. Ian Lipkin and Mady Hornig at Columbia University. This shift in immune function hadn’t been seen before.

    A relative phoned me from Houston last night with news about contaminated drinking water in Texas.
    When I dug into it this morning, KHOU, a CBS statiion, is reporting about this problem which has
    apparently been glossed over by state officials. To see this news, view the following link:

    In terms of CFS, in light of the link that the National CFIDS Foundation has found between low-level
    radiation exposure and mitochondrial DNA deletions (identifed from peer-reviewed medical journals), the ingestion of radionuclides could be a major link between radiation poisoning and the development of CFS as previously stated by the NCF. Since it is in the water supply, certainly the food supply
    would be expected to be affected as well.
