    Thought this was interesting, and that I could remember that lipids were of interest to us?

    I only skimmed the article but it seems every time something comes in vogue its linked to everything big and the correlation hunting begins...
    I remember thinking about this a bit many years ago but filed it away and i think Dr Edwards said something to this effect in the enterovirus thread.

    That said even a stopped clock is right twice a day, i'm sure it is linked to a few things but it won't be linked to many its tested against (or as mentioned its an effect not a cause). I suspect this to the be case in ME/CFS, the microbiome research is more likely to lead towards effect rather then cause (but if i am wrong about that then it could lead to treatment/cure so it should be investigated).

    If 'bad' microbes are having a bad effect, eliminating them should at least get rid of that effect. That would be one less problem, even though you would till have ME.

    I agree but tinkering on the edges is small potatoes.
    As a slight aside i have been taking a new supplement that has made some small improvements, i was of course happy but compared to my condition a year ago its a very small victory and i continue to progress so the improvement will be wiped out in a few months at this rate:(
