    Tuskegee syphilis experiment, Stanford prison experiment, etc and now we can soon add the Bristol child experiment to the long infamous list of harm-inducing 'research'.

    History will not remember Crawley kindly.

    A study on whether teenagers have mood problems? Would be like studying whether monkeys have tails.

    Wouldn't it be more informative to study children and adolescents with ME who do not have mood problems, as identifying how they cope with a major disabling condition might give ideas of how to support all those who reasonablely struggle with such a condition whilst being misunderstood by medical professionals and pressured into potentially harmful treatments?

    I wonder whether they study mood and mental health problems in children with other chronic disabling physical illnesses too.

    But that risks undermining the researchers belief system. They would not want to risk demonstrating any mood issues were a normal response to a major disabling condition. Also it is dangerously heading towards an adequate experimental design with actual control groups and things like that.
