    This paper was highlighted in the comments of Tuller's latest blog, http://www.virology.ws/2017/12/23/trial-by-error-bristols-complaint-to-berkeley/, as a discussion of the issues surrounding the medical field's refusal to concede that they might, actually, be wrong, ever.

    Just leave this here in case it is of interest to anyone who is on Twitter.
    I don't have a Twitter account, haven't read the article either.

    Edit:
    Thanks @Mike Dean.

    Saw that on Twitter and couldn't get my head round it. Turns out the quote is not by Popper & McIntyre. It's by the authors of the chapter on food intolerance in Byron Hyde's Clinical & scientific basis of ME.
