Hi Everybody--

I sent off an email to Dr Oz this morning, requesting that he do a show about CFS/ME, given the recent research findings.

I'm hoping that some other people here might consider sending him one too. If he gets multiple letters, maybe he will be more motivated to take it on.
Wouldn't that be great!

Here's the link

Good idea!!

I just sent my letter to Dr. Oz. Will work on Oprah soon.. It's interesting that we can now say WPI, NCI, and Cleveland Clilnic has research with possible cause and looking into treatment.

Also, I reference it being the number one hit on NYT and googlenews.com. Millions are interested in this topic now.... HOPE!!!

I have no idea who Dr Oz is (lost my TV set years ago) I sent him a letter because I just want to see this information get out there:


Please do a show on the new research by the Whittemore-Peterson Institute and the National Cancer Institute showing a retroviral link to the disease ME/CFS. I have struggled with this illness and the related neuro-immune conditions Fibromyalgia and MCS for decades. Like many others I have lost my career, home and possessions. My relationships with family and friends have been irreparably damaged since many physicians have treated me as if I was a faker and malingerer. This is a common story among those afflicted with these conditions.

The findings of the team at WPI also show that about 4% of the general population are carrying this retrovirus (XMRV). This may have huge implications for public health since we do not know if those who are asymptomatic will eventually develop what is now being termed X Associated Neuro-immune Disease, or XAND, nor do we know the exact transmission modes of XMRV.

I hope you will do a show on this in the very near future and continue to cover this very important medical story.

Sincerely,
my name

HEY everybody--

We still could use a few more people to send some emails this week.

Is anybody out there?
Also done! Thanks for the link. Would have done it earlier, but like others, my emotions and attention have been jumping all over the place and it has been hard to focus. '

Thanks for the reminder,
Sushi

THANKS to everyone who has sent an email to Dr. OZ!

So far that is 13 people from this forum, and 5 others--from another forum, making 18 total.

I'm hoping we can get a few more today, to bring the number to 25.

Anybody else out there???

I just notified my local doctor (who has a bunch of CFS patients) about this, and he will send an email to Dr Oz too.

PLEASE do the same if you can. thanks

This is a little off topic but does concern Dr. Oz. Dr. Mercola sent out a newsletter today about Dr. Oz's show on the flu vaccine. He posted two videos. One on the show where Dr. Oz gets the seasonal flu vac. The other is an interview afterwards where he says he will get the H1N1 flu vac when it is available to the general public but that his wife and children will not. I thought you might be interested in watching it.

Take care,
