Review: 'Through the Shadowlands’ describes Julie Rehmeyer's ME/CFS Odyssey
I should note at the outset that this review is based on an audio version of the galleys and the epilogue from the finished work. Julie Rehmeyer sent me the final version as a PDF, but for some reason my text to voice software (Kurzweil) had issues with it. I understand that it is...

    It looks like they were unfortunately not checking for differences in immune function of exposed offspring, or their gut microbiome ... which was what rodent studies show, i.e. that prenatal immune insults lead to not only neuroinflammation but also general immune disturbance (tendency for pro-inflammatory overreaction later in life, without actually fighting off pathogens effectively) and gut dysbiosis + leaky gut!

    The issue of dysregulated microglia cells seems to be popping up more and more frequently at the moment.

    It was exactly 10 years ago that John Hopkins team found microgliosis in postmortem autism brains. Now Oxford team is confirming (mostly unpublished). No treatment trials in sight. Things that matter move at snail speed :( if at all.
