Great Articles on ME/CFS

Last week, there were several really excellent articles on ME/CFS in the mainstream media.  I've had these 3 articles sitting open in browser windows on my laptop for almost a week now!  I figured it's time to finally pass these along:
  • Unlocking Chronic Fatigue Syndrome by Amy Docker Marcus (our best friend in the media), published in the Wall Street Journal on May 22.  This article gives an overview of ME/CFS research like you've never read in the newspaper before: heavily focused on real science, possible infectious agents, and new studies.
  • Wall Street Journal's Health Blog, also on May 22: The Hunt for the Biological Causes of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome by Katherine Hobson.  This brief blog post is mostly focused on the National Institutes of Health (NIH) upcoming conference on ME/CFS April 7 - 8, including 100 scientists, but it also references Amy Docker Marcus' article, above.
  • Scientists Seeking Biological Causes of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, published on May 22 on the Fox News website.  Although this is essentially a reprint of Marcus' WSJ article (above), I thought it was significant that Fox News covered it as well.
So, that was last week's news!  Now I can focus on THIS week...
