The second segment of the new Web-based TV show - "ME/CFS Alert" - is now available on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vIWGFFkp_lw).
Narrated by host Llewellyn King, this episode is a commentary highlighting the lack of NIH research funding for ME/CFS (e.g., $1.25 annually per patient, if that, versus $400 per patient for multiple sclerosis). Yet patients are in dire straits. (New UK public health measures of the toll taken by ME/CFS indicate it exceeds that of other chronic diseases, even cancer.*) “ME/CFS Alert” can be accessed on the YouTube Channel LIMFIL88.
