    Love it! If Alter paper is positive and immediate action isn't taken, I might just follow her lead here in The Netherlands.

    Great! Thanks a lot and congratulations!! Now imagine, it was not one person, but 200'000 (better 1 million). That's what i think we need to do, if XMRV will not be "it" and maybe even if it is, to raise more money.

    :D :D

    Although, for added effect, you may want to look very sick, too. For the next one-woman demonstration, I propose to get an IV infusion (just an electrolyte infusion, that's what usually gives me some relief) and wheel the stand with the bag of liquid around. :D

    A (wheel)chair might be effective, too! :sofa:

    illsince,

    definitely inspiring! thanks for posting.

    Rivka's posters, commentary, & idea of a one-person demonstration are excellent!

    the NIH/FDA/Harvard paper just came out. now is the time to demonstrate and protest. we can't let them tell us that they need more papers before clinical trials. WE NEED CLINICAL TRIALS NOW!
