It is necessarily a book of factoids, and it is easy to lose sight of the big picture. It is most useful as a reference, and checking to see what other operations are going on at the same time. Don't try to read it all at once and it is passable. Read full review
This year's Current still lists "CFS" (aka ME) as "Fatigue & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome...p.39" in Chp.2 "Common Symptoms." Need it be pointed out once again that ME is a severe neuro-immune disease not Idiopathic Chronic Fatigue?
I refer the authors to the ME International Consensus Criteria for accurate information on ME:
I would love to give Current a five-star rating and will very gladly do so if an accurate entry on ME is substituted. I do think it is generally a very good work. Pls take info from the ME ICC, supra, and/or contact me for more info or to find an authority who will draft an accurate piece on ME for you for free. Thank you.
There are some accurate statements in the piece on ME, but many harmful inaccuracies taken from studies or articles by proven frauds such as Simon Wessely and which use the Reeves and Sharpe definitions of "CFS" which are both patently invalid on their face.
Here are a sample of the egregious inaccuracies in this article:
"Persons with confirmed CFS report a much greater frequency of childhood trauma and psychopathology..."
"Acyclovir...and low-dose hydro-cortosone do not improve symptoms."
"There is a greater occurrence of past and current psychiatric diagnoses in patients with this syndrome."
"All patients...should be reassured that full recovery is eventually possible in most cases."
