Note : although the link to this article and the videos is on an MCS website, the information is relevant to all multi system illnesses. I have placed this in the parent forum and changed the title to reflect this.

Martin Pall’s research (http://www.thetenthparadigm.org/), a review of more than 1,500 references to scientific literature, shows a common causal (etiologic) mechanism for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, Fibromyalgia and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder: The chronic nature of MCS and also related multisystem illnesses is thought to be produced by a biochemical vicious cycle mechanism, the NO/ONOO- cycle, which is initiated by various stressors that increase nitric oxide and peroxynitrite levels (with some but not others acting via NMDA stimulation).

This is one that I was wondering if it would be worth while making it a sticky. What do others think?

I am not sure about making a sticky. You did a good job of listing the resources!

It is the information given in the videos that had me thinking this. This is the first time I have come across a video of Martin Pall. Even though these are embedded You Tube videos a search of You Tube did not find them.
