New Research on What Causes CFS/ME by Dr. Kenny De Meirleir, MD, PhD


This is breaking news.... I haven't checked it out yet, but hear that Dr. Kenny De Meirleir, MD,PhD, spoke at a press conference unveiling histeam's groundbreaking findings regarding theillness called Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/ChronicFatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS). The presentationcovered the team's conclusions concerning thecomplex mechanisms of ME/CFS pathogenesis, a diagnostic test they have developed "for a major cause of ME," and possible therapeutic strategies.

Check out the slides of a CFS patient's blood compared to someone who is healthy:

And of course they mention mycoplasma infection, found in two-thirds of CFS patients. This is something that Prof. Nicolson has reported as well.   ; ^)

On one of the slides in the link above... a list of predisposing factors for CFS:

cellular stress
toxins
viruses
long-standing physical or mental stress
hormonal changes
bacteria / parasites
leaky gut syndrome
genetic predisposition
