The Real ME: A Stock Photography Resource for the Media
We’ve all seen them in the news stories about ME/CFS: the guy in a suit at the office, yawning; the beautiful woman sitting at her desk with her immaculate make-up and elegantly coiffed hair, hand to her head and looking slightly pained.

    I have been making similar points about PACE which is full of obfuscating language. Interesting that it appears to be more common.

    Send them the PACE paper. I'd like to see their evaluation of it.

    Better yet, ask Coyne to ask them to evaluate it. I imagine the Stanford folks would take him more seriously than they'd take us. Or, since it's Stanford, maybe Ron Davis could ask them to run an eye over it.

    Not that they will, because that research is over and they're on to other things probably. But one has one's dreams....

    While you are at it, send them a few papers from the IDSA Lyme researchers. Particularly those studies from the same small circle of researchers with the suspiciously narrow criteria and small samples, that always produce the same pre-conceived results. Like the one in this petition: https://www.change.org/p/the-us-sen...stigation-of-the-cdc-idsa-and-aldf/u/14006106

    At the very least you have to presume the research could be wrong. That is the point of science. Always allow for things to be wrong. Question. Investigate. Do further research.
