Don’t let vested interests perpetuate harmful treatments for ME/CFS!
ME/CFS strikes 1 in 250 of us. It is a devastating illness, more disabling than angina or multiple sclerosis. Three quarters of sufferers are too ill to work or pursue education; a quarter are house- or bed-bound. Hundreds of thousands of lives are ruined; people who could otherwise be contributing to their communities are dependent on family or on the state. The cost to the economy is estimated to be £6.4 billion per year. Most who develop it never recover completely, although careful lifestyle management can help significantly.
