Hi, I thought an "easy to read" thread (not a discussion thread), for just for any POSTIVE developments in the ME/CFS fields which could be updated whenever something new happened or is noticed would be a good idea.

- Norwegian reseach breakthrou (Rituxmab) http://forums.phoenixrising.me/show...kthrough-with-Rituximab-can-solve-CFS-mystery!!!

- The Norwegian scientists win an award for their research http://forums.phoenixrising.me/showthread.php?14787-Norwegian-ME-researchers-Receive-Award

- NHS Scotland recommends to diagnose ME and separate it from CFS http://forums.phoenixrising.me/show...ith-the-Canadian-Criteria-and-separate-it-fro

- A medical site which is actually giving truthful info about ME and CFS.
check out slideshow 5 (which points out ME is a different illness to ME) and slideshow 12 (which is describing CFS and not ME).

This is about 6 weeks old, but I think may be the best explanation yet of the methylation block - glutathione depletion hypothesis. A good introduction to RichVank's simplified protocol, a presentation he made in Sweden.

The video is several hours, so best to watch when you have time to absorb. There are links to the slides in the Swedish text below the video, just click on the two .pdf file links.
