Remember that by making extraordinary demands of Lombardi and Mikovits, Science made their paper incredibly water-tight.
This could be exactly what happens here. The paper only becomes more of definitive home run that moves this discussion into a new phase and halts the silly negative studies based on bogus cohorts and collection/lab techniques.
yep, this may work out to our benefit. Plus, WPI is saying other positive studies are coming.
Take a deep breath. We knew it would be a roller coaster ride. Nothing in CFS is easy and nothing is simple and nothing is obvious. Plus, politics is part of it.
But think back to the studies that have revealed so much of what is going wrong in our bodies. In the last ten years, we have learned a whole lot, and most of it with researchers with very little money.
Now, things are going fast (well, much faster).
So, take a deep breath. There will be winners and losers, and we will have little influence. The researchers will determine their own fate.
