R.E.S.C.I.N.D. video screenshotR.E.S.C.I.N.D. has an interesting video from 1996:

With the renewed interest in retroviral causes of M.E. and Bill Reeves moving on with his psychological studies, I thought this would be the perfect time to add an interesting video to the RESCIND website. It's a 1996 story featured on Prime Time Live to coincide with the debut of Hillary Johnson's book, Osler's Web. Featuring a zany cast of characters like Stephen Strauss indicating that CFS is psychological, Bill Reeves calling it hysteria, and Phil Lee stating that he believed a retro virus could be involved and the government is making progress! Why did you throw us under the bus, Phil?

Notable cast members include Paul Cheney, David Bell, Elaine DeFreitas, Hillary Johnson as well as patients from the Tahoe and Lyndonville outbreaks.

It's stated in the video how little progress had been made up until 1996 and it's disconcerting how little progress has been made since.

I'll be trying to post more of these historical videos as time and health allows.


Please note:
