New Video on M.E. (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) Research by Prof. Jason of DePaul University

Tom Kindlon, based in Ireland, has been providing updates on various aspects of the study of M.E. (myalgic encephalomyelitis).  I follow him on Twitter.

Below is the latest video, which actually is the first in a new series.  It is mainly about the random-digit population study Prof. Leonard Jason did in the 1990s.  He found that M.E. was much more common than previously thought and affected all groups.  It wasn’t “Yuppie Flu.”

Prof. Jason, based in the DePaul University in Chicago, also makes a statement in this video regarding the “flawed” early CDC research, and its statement on its findings.  (This is one of at least 2 that I personally, just recently, have read about CDC’s problems with research and its deleting harmful (to the CDC’s reputation) reports from its data base.  Is this the organization that is supposed to be protecting the health of the citizens of the United States?)

In this webinar Prof. Jason presents himself and talks about his experience with ME by straightforwardly answering five questions put to him.  There are German sub-titles for German language speakers.

Here is the video (6 minutes 23 seconds):

Video questions:

0.37 How did you get involved in ME?
1.51 What kind of research did you do regarding ME?
2.58 What are the most important discoveries you made?
4.06 What research are you into currently?
5.01 Is your research psychological and/or physiological?
