"The Science Media Centre surpassed itself in its coverage of the Columbia University study. Of seven experts chosen to respond to the study, not one gives a positive analysis, no medical adviser from an ME charity or, non-psychosomatic promoting, ME researcher is quoted.
The featured experts are:
Professors Michael Sharpe and Peter White, and Dr Esther Crawley, all notorious proponents of the psychogenic ME model.
Professor Stephen Lawrie, head of The Division of Psychiatry at the University of Edinburgh: ‘This is a small study’ he states; a study encompassing 20 participants is small professor Lawrie, one involving over 600 participants is not. One has to ask why is a psychiatrist being consulted?"
