    I have major brain fuzz today but cannot see from my read-through much of a link with ME/CFS/CFIDS - they just state that the metabolites they've tested are 'implicated in CFIDS' without so much as a citation. Weird.

    This looks as though they wanted that sweet, sweet CFIDS money and figured mentioning ME was enough to count. :rolleyes:

    [Edit: in the newsletter I was more circumspect, but this really burns my biscuits. Is cancer funding so scarce that a research group has to take money from small ME charities? Shameful.]

    The National CFIDS Foundation tends to look for researchers to do studies based on the theories of their scientific director.

    Good to know! Still -- there is literally nothing here. I'm sure their scientific director wanted them to look into the relationship between cancer and ME, not do a study on cancer but mention ME in one, single sentence of their paper (and the title!)
