me+ME: A good report on XMRV
seems a good report and survey, and it also is a considerable relief to
read compared with the APA-prose that I have
been writing about lately: At least they use quantifiers, logic and
know some probability theory. And apart from XMRV-technicalities I
never read up on, which I can't follow, the arguments make logical
It is ten pages of text in the pdf, with 8 pages of references and at the end a table of XMRV-related research in other diseases than ME/CFS and a figure that is said to be a "Simplified schematic of the life cycle of a simple exogenous retrovirus", that qua abstract art looks a lot better than I was exposed to under that label in Dutch museums (*), and even represents something.
As to ME/CFS (that I prefer to call ME):
Short descriptions of the above:
1. Ten reasons why ME/CFS is a real disease by a professor of medicine of Harvard.
2. Long essay by a professor emeritus of medical chemistry about maltreatment of ME.
3. Explanation of what's happening around ME by an investigative journalist.
4. Report to Canadian Government on ME, by many medical experts.
5. Advice to psychiatrist by a psychiatrist who understa, but nds ME is an organic disease
6. English mathematical genius on one's responsibilities in the matter of one's beliefs:
7. A space-
and computer-scientist takes a look at psychology.
