    "male-pattern baldness gets more research funds than ME/CFS in the US"
    I have seen/heard Dr. Klimas refer to this in several places but have never seen the source for funding for male-pattern baldness (which has been linked to several diseases).
    If someone knows the source, please share here. @Dolphin, @alex3619 (other)

    Last I heard they were cutting the ME budget to 0 at the CDC. No question ME is underfunded.

    Klimas has been clever about it and gets her funding for GWS through the DoD (they have a lot more money - and GWS is taken at least slightly more seriously than ME).
