Hi all

Did anyone see this article in the Daily Mail yesterday (saturday)

"proof at last  that "yuppie flu" is a real illness, not just in the mind"

Seems there has been some research going on (thankfully) that disproves the theory of yuppie flu (papers words.

I think its a good article and is endorsed ny Sonia Chowdry of Action for ME.

They say the study (by researchers at Columibia University New York) has proved that the condition triggers a distinctive immune response in the bod.

They analysed blood samples from ME patients and non-ME sufferers and the blood samples from ME patients showed a distinct "chemical signature" and non-ME sufferers didnt

Its a start.

Hi Eliz,
Yes, for once it's been widely reported in several UK newspapers and on BBC Health Page today too.
It's encouraging news - I think it will be too late for me to benefit, but I am pleased for younger people. Still a way to go but it's a start.
