    I can certainly state mine was not. I was healthy for at least a year or so prior to onset, and had had no prescribed medications at that time.

    Since David Tuller does not have ME/CFS, the question should be, 'What makes some of her supporters assume that it's only ME/CFS patients who are challenging Professor Crawley?"

    Proven falsehood.


    So what, why cant Bristol cough up for it they must have an insurance or other such funds for such things IF THERES A GENUINE CASE!

    Person one: X did this very bad thing to me to damage my reputation and is harassing me.

    Person two: Well if it fits the legal definition of harassment go to the police.

    Person one: Hes an academic and I'm a researcher funded by the tax payer and he keeps asking me for my data and for me to back up my claims as a scientist.

    Person two: Ah.

    Person one: Thanks for the advice.

    And people wonder why there are counter establishment popular movements in both Europe and the United States.

    CFS. I expect ME, as in the outbreak at Royal Free Hospital, is mostly a result of a rare type of fungi which only causes serious and long term health problems in a small number of people. Symptoms in the Royal Free outbreak are similar, but not as bad, as ergot poisioning. That fungi can cause serious health problems is well documented in animal health. It's a great shame that human medical science is so narrow minded that they appear to know nothing about animal health. As for adverse drug reactions....consider when the term "yuppie flu" first started to be mentioned in the media. Then add when the widespread use of the new wonder drug Prozac began. There is research to show that Prozac and other Serotonin Realease Agents cause what looks like CFS in rodents. Paracetamol is also a mild serotonin release agent. Not a lot of people know that. I apply this to "most cases".
