Chilli ME Challenge

 

Do you remember the “Ice Bucket ALS Challenge” of last year?  Well, now, we have the “Chilli ME Challenge.”

Awareness for ME/CFS/SEID/CFIDS needs to be addressed and put forth in all media.  The need for research is dire.  There are many brilliant and talented scientists who are ready to continue their intense and costly experiments and “all we need” is more money from our government’s NIH (National Institutes of Health).

Although the number of sufferers of ME/CFS/SEID outnumber the combined number of patients who have MS, Lupus and HIV/AIDS, the amount of grants for ME/CFS/SEID research is only $5 million as opposed to $250 million for the other diseases named above.

Below is a short video of one woman’s (Simone) acceptance of the challenge.  Before she eats the hot chilli, she gives a quick summation of most of the symptoms that people worldwide suffer with this disease.
