    Agree with some; disagree with others.

    It seems a tragic omission in view of his specialism (immunology) and public status, that he never apparently picked up on the likelihood of autoimmunity.

    I liked him when I had a consultation with him, finding him patient and respectful. My only complaint would be his apparent dismissal of my chemical sensitvity as psychological in origin, although he did not explcitly say so.

    Why can't "fatigue" be properly described for what it is?

    a simple "inability to achieve aerobic metabolism".
