    Thanks for that link Charles. Vaguely knew about the Kew archives, but not that sucessful efforts had been made to release the info.

    Looks like an interesting blog too.

    Just reading through these. The section on retroviruses and Behan's comments on enteroviruses in muscle are redacted until 2071 when all of us will be dead.

    This is of course only to protect the patients that are so vulnerable to suggestion that merely hearing about viruses instantly causes life-long symptoms :rolleyes:

    This part about Behan wasn't redacted:
    The referenced work is this: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/1794085

    From the long Behan paper (page 129):

     
    melamine and ahmo like this.
  10. And some of the early Polio vaccine work was done in the Belgian Congo
    did anyone ever question WHY there?
    Because it was one of the world's most horrible regimes on Earth, folk were treated like animals
    So risk of unethical or worse behaviour in research there...well...ME/CFS...HIV...hm?

    I wonder what was redacted from the section at the top of page 7 on CBT? S40 is personal information.
