The single study I think we could get the biggest bang for the buck for would be an epidemiological study of the link between previously vanishingly rare non-hodgkins lymphoma and ME. For example, I believe 19 of the approximately 200 person Tahoe cohort have gotten either Burkitt's or Mantle Cell Lymphoma. To highlight how extraordinary this is, according to Osler's Web, in 1982 only one person in California contracted Burkitt's Lymphoma. Seymour Grufferman wanted to do such a study early on, as reported in Osler's Web, but couldn't get funding. Benefits of a study I think that: (1) the cost would be reasonable, (2) any proper study would show an extremely strong association and (3) the association would make us much more fundable because of a rock solid link to cancer. Don't know if Grufferman or anyone else would be interested in doing such a study. CBS and Otis are starting a grass-roots science funding website where we can contribute directly to researchers we like. I would love to see someone doing this kind of study get some funding from there or anywhere else. Does anyone know Grufferman or anyone else that could be helpful? Has Peterson been interested in arranging such a study? Any feedback?
