    I have said elsewhere that sometimes churnalism can help us. This is an example.

    You beat me to it, saw the article yesterday and was just going to post. Lucky I searched the forums to double-check first. I wonder how this lack of energy to cells ties in with mitochondrial dysfunction. According to 23andme I have some of the danger mutations (although not the very worst ones/full combination) for MTHFR and there seems to be a linkage with all the "Ms", mitochondrial issues, mast cell issues, MTHFR and methylation issues (I seem to have almost all of these according to my genes).

    Hahaha! Original narrative they’ve gone for there!... It’s almost like a parody of themselves. Anyway, thanks for that DM, I guess.

    Pains me to say it, but this is still light years ahead of the Guardian. Which has chosen to continue its policy of ignoring any ME story that doesn’t support its earlier reporting of deranged psychopaths claiming to be tired.

    Narratives need a villain. Phase A of the narrative it was us. In this phase it's them. the worm turns. hopefully it doesn't turn again.
