    There's nothing new in this article from 17th March 2018. It gives a short introduction to ME and biomedical research, debunks GET and CBT as treatments and writes about the research at Griffith University in Australia.

    The article was first published last year, and is now published again perhaps with some minor changes.

    ScienceAlert is an Australian-based news-service about science that reaches an international audience of more than 20 million people every week. They have written several articles about ME-research and I believe are a big help in mainstreaming ME as a research field of interest.

    Excellent! But their tagline seems to be in error:

    Chronic fatigue still is a real disease​

    I think they must have meant to put 'syndrome' where 'still' is.

    There may be nothing new there, but I bet a lot of those 20 million didn't know it.
