    De Meirlier says that sulfate-reducing bacteria are the source of hydrogen sulfide in the gut in CFS patients.

    But there are sulfur-reducing bacteria as well, and these also produce hydrogen sulfide.

    Does anyone know if sulfur-reducing bacteria are also implicated in CFS?


    Sulfate-reducing bacteria include: streptococcus, enterococcus and prevotella.

    Sulfur-reducing bacteria include: proteus, campylobacter, pseudomonas and salmonella.


    Sulfate = SO4, Sulfur = S
