    Minority interest, probably. No direct relevance to ME/CFS

    Like a mini-review paper where she looks at the data from studies and trials.

    At one point, she mentions "Science has a status bias problem" (i.e. higher status researchers are treated better by peer review).

    Quite a long article. Not the most exciting thing I've read and the evidence isn't clear cut for a lot of it but maybe of interest to somebody.

    I am a fan of Hilda Bastian, she is from Australia (lived in my town for a while actually), and was for many years, a somewhat well known consumer advocate.
