    Mold at Ground Zero for CFS

    History Doesn’t Remember the Names of the Critics

    The history of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) begins in Incline Village, Nevada in 1985. In the medical history of CFS, each of the concepts applies–failed theories and failed criticism.
    One victim, Erik Johnson, told everyone who would listen that mold was a cause of CFS. He came up with his theory at the wrong time in the politics of medical opinion, as a unknown viral cause was blamed instead. Johnson tried repeatedly to get the attention of leading CFS researchers then and now to look at what he knew about mold sensitivity. None of the heralded CFS researchers would listen.
    Twenty years passed before Erik’s mold opinions were vindicated. I wasn’t in Incline Village; I have no idea what really happened there.
    I don’t see any proof that anyone recorded a biotoxin history. Was mold the problem? One part of the problem? Did the virus of Incline Village unveil mold susceptibility? No one can say now.
    Erik remains upset that his ideas weren’t respected. I haven’t heard the Incline Village story from the side of the docs involved. From what I’ve seen, physicians like Dr. Peterson and Dr. Cheney remained true to a standard of high-quality, compassionate, ethical care.
    Erik raises some important points, however. There’s never any time that we can afford to ignore insights from those who have a valid experiential basis for their opinion.

    She must be able to afford a good doctor.
    I am sure mine would have just said it was a stress response from the tree falling through the house & its all in your head. Oh how good would it be to have the money to buy the right answers.
    Lucy you are one of the lucky ones.
