The CFS/ME community has been all abuzz with talk of the XMRV retrovirus since the Whittemore Institute announced early last month their findings detecting the virus in greater than 95% of CFS/ME sufferers tested. The big question is whether the retrovirus is a causative factor in CFS/ME or just another opportunistic infection. Mehmet Oz, M.D., “America’s Doctor” and host of The Dr. Oz Show, will be focusing on this discovery in an upcoming show.
The show’s website states: “Have you been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome? Dr. Oz is doing a segment on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and the discovery of a new virus that may be causing it. If you or someone you know have been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue and are willing to appear on The Dr. Oz Show please write and tell us your story.”
Hopefully they will have representatives from the Whittemore Institute as well as a panel of well informed, articulate CFS/ME patients who can help illuminate the devastation caused by this illness, as well as the marred political past that has kept research funding and appropriate treatment from sufferers. Thank you Dr. Oz for covering this story, we just hope you allow for a truthful accounting of history.
