    In the newsletter it says

    "Chronic Fatigue Treatment Redux: Questioning the Efficacy of CBT and Graded Exercise

    Peter Roy-Byrne, MD reviewing Wilshire CE et al. BMC Psychol 2018 Mar 22.

    Researchers reanalyzing data from a landmark study claim that the effects from cognitive-behavioral therapy and graded exercise were modest and weak."

    This may not seem like much, but there has been almost no coverage relating to ME/CFS for the many years that I have received the free newsletter.
