    This seems to be a spam website with various random links flung together.

    If they were just going to rehash Maes and De Meirleir´s work, they could have at least mentioned them in the article.

    I think this article is pseudoscience but anyway the gut is a problem in many patiënts. If you can treat this you feel much better. However it isn't THE CAUSE of ME/CFS.

    Might be good if you edited the title to reflect that - maybe put the claim in quote marks.

    What I mean is that, because you haven't put the title of this thread in quotes, it appears to be you who is making the claim that GI inflammation is the real cause of CFS.

    That's what I thought too, before I read post 4 in the thread.

    I think it's fair to say the cause of CFS (or causes, plural) are unknown. The relationship between the microbiome dysregulation and cfs isn't understood well enough to rule it in or out as a causative agent.

    Do poorly written science journalism articles belong in the new research forum?
