    One would think that CFS researchers should spend a lot more resources looking at mitochondria....

    Yes this Dr Myhill's approach isn't it - mitochondria damage - very much involved in ME from her research. One gets the feeling as research continues and more is understood benefits will come for other related neuroimmune diseases.

    Rotenone was been used as "rat poison" a few years back. I'm pretty sure rotenone (or something very similar) is found naturally in the environment. I'm going to check on this, but I think it (in some form) occurs in apple seeds and the outer shell of "green" hickory nuts, scalybark nuts and walnuts.
