I have Google Alerts for CFIDS, CFS, Reeves, XMRV, and so on. So I get emails on the blogs,studies, anything and everything with my keywords. I have noticed that in the last two or so days, that the stupid psychological studies by Reeves and Emory U. MIND-BODY are being re-issued again. The CDC does have a Public Relations office and apparently they do watch to see what is being said about the CDC - and I would bet they are watching to see what the temperature is on the CDC/CFS/Reeves program and the CDC XMRV Replication being done. They had to see the "trial balloon" go up by the UK's Wessely on the 186 people that did not show any Retrovirus - and the very negative comments that were hurled at this "study". And I am willing to bet that they are getting prepared for when (NOT IF) the CDC XMRV study comes out and also shows that the samples have no XMRV. The CDC and the PR people must also be aware that when this comes out there will be screaming so loud by us sick people, doctors and researchers that Atlanta will shake.
So, has anyone noticed this pattern or is it only me? I might also add that stupid "study" by Reeves on how effective the CDC/CFS website was for providing information to people and doctors. He gave himself a big pat on the back for that. Though oddly, the site has not been updated in about four or so years and missing was the XMRV study and its possible implications to CFIDS. I do think the CDC is preparing the ground for the attacks that are going to come their way when the CDC XMRV Replication study is released into the public arena.
Anyone following my rambling thinking????? Thoughts?
Lastly, every time I see the really stupid studies by Reeves and his gang of morons I always respond with hard-hitting comments and solid data. Sometimes my comments are published and sometimes not. BUT, I think WE ALL must counter every single CDC/CFS blog/website/article/etc. and hit hard to show how wrong they are.
Sorry guys - I am so tired. One litttle trip to the supermarket and you would think I just ran a marathon at 6,500 feet above sea level...Got to love CFIDS...

Genes Linked To Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Chronic Fatigue Syndrome http://www.micronutra.com/journal/c...aign=genes-linked-to-chronic-fatigue-syndrome
- "Studies have shown that those with CFS have variants in the part of the brain that responds to stress. One study links symptoms of CFS including pain, memory function and fatigue to the genes that affect how our bodies deal with stress. This implies that those with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome cannot brush off those stresses that others easily can. It also shows that CFS does not have a single, root cause, but is caused and influenced by a number of different factors...Eat a well balanced diet with plenty of fruits, vegetables and whole grains for energy, and make sure to stay away from caffeine, alcohol and other stimulants and depressants. Focus on the things in your life that make you happy" ((Yup, focusing on things that make me happy really works with CFIDS - idiots))
