Anyway, the news today was that a mouse retrovirus (XMRV), (which is associated with prostate cancer), may cause CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME...
BTW - Last year, there was news of aNOTHER retrovirus link to CFS, MS, etc.... (HERV K-18) A retrovirus we apparently have had in our DNA ever since we roamed the African savanahs, hunting giant herds of mice or whatnot...
And here's a great CFS site created by one man, trying to recover from this dastardly plague i lovingly refer to as Benny the Hobmonster...
Although my dog was only 6 months old, he knew i had an illness infecting, esp., the left side of my brain. The very first time he met me, he ran up and licked that area, and has continued sniffing and licking thereabouts, around my left eye, and smelling my breath with keen interest. I could talk about this and CFS at great length, but i must happily return to my computer, which eats meh.
