Not sure if anyone has seen this yet: http://www.prohealth.com/library/showarticle.cfm?libid=30412

tl;dr: Mitochondrial dysfunction appears to be a secondary cause to oxidative stress and/or neuroinflammation in ME/CFS.

Pretty much in line with Sarah Myhill's thinking. As far as I'm aware, she's always said that mitochondrial dysfunction is a 'result' rather than a 'cause'.

The neuroinflammation stuff justifies retaining the original name ME, as well.

Because it sounds more like a 'real' illness, I'm inclined to agree. But it's still just a name given to something that's not understood.

Thank you for posting this Adam. I cannot remember if I have read this or not already but I like Cort Johnson's analyses and often read his stuff on his site.
