    Journalist Jørgen Jelstad, which has written the critically acclaimed book "De bortgjemte" ("the hidden"), just wrote one of the best articles i have read regarding ME.
    As some of you remember prof. Kristian Gundersen recently criticised patients in one of the biggest norwegian papers, for using their voices basically.

    I`m not sure how good it is through google translate, but here is the link to the article : https://debortgjemte.com/2016/04/26/hva-om-pasientene-har-rett-kristian-gundersen/.

    Maybe it can be translated at a later time, if Jelstad so wish.

    Edit: I saw @deleder2k already mentioned this in another thread, this one can be deleted :)

    Critic of patients still wants to see PACE data released:

    Interesting to see that Prof Kristian Gundersen, despite generally portraying patients' objections as unreasonable, does support the release of PACE data

    Good section from Jorgen explaining why data needs to be released
    And a very good article by Jorgen Jestad
