On December 3, 2009 the Dr. Oz Show focused on the recent XMRV retrovirus discovery and its implications for those suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS)/myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME). In the video clip below, Dr. Oz speaks with Donnica Moore, MD, as well as a recovered patient and shares an animation video showing how the virus incorporates itself into the DNA within our cells. It’s an interesting segment but he ended it by saying that people with CFS/ME should try to exercise no matter how little. From what I know about CFS/ME, exercise can be very dangerous for some people. We would love to hear from those that saw the whole show and can share how they felt the issue was handled.

The short film ‘Multiple Chemical Sensitivity and Environmental Illness’ will be screened this Friday at 3pm PST.
