I came across this article from Jan. 2018 http://simmaronresearch.com/2018/01/chronic-fatigue-syndrome-mecfs-chronic-form-sepsis/ about David Bell's idea that ME could be something like a 'slow sepsis'. This topic seems to be a little bit older though: http://cfstreatment.blogspot.de/2015/04/guts-bugs-and-slow-sepsis-in-mecfs.html This is from 2015. Does anybody know what happened to this idea? And why it might not be correct (i.e. are there findings that contradict this idea)?
