    Study Traces Biological Origins of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

    "Researchers from the Center for Infection and Immunity at the Mailman School of Public Health identified distinct immune changes in people with chronic fatigue syndrome, providing evidence that the disease is a biological illness rather than a psychological one."

    Well said.

    It made the cut with a lot of other impressive work.

    Hysteries (1998), Columbia University Press:

    It's long past time for Columbia to include a caveat -- in Hysteries' description and within the book itself -- that declares Showalter's medical claims to be false.

    http://www.amazon.com/Hystories-Hysteria-Culture-Elaine-Showalter/dp/0330346709/ref=pd_sim_sbs_14_3?ie=UTF8&dpID=4137PG8Z3RL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL160_SR111,160_&refRID=1B0V4ZN4NJE52S7F3T3H

    As recently as 2013/2014, some Amazon reviewers still believe Showalter's CFS claims.

    Maybe Showalter will be abducted by Aliens who cause her to have hysterical paralysis.
    Publish or perish, no matter by what means. First I saw a blurb about her book I used 4 days worth of bad words. iz
