Study on biology of chronic fatigue illness stirs debate

LONDON (Reuters) - A team of scientists said on Friday they had found "robust evidence" that a condition called Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is a biological as opposed to a psychological disorder, but some experts questioned the findings. The team from Columbia University in the United States identified in their research distinct immune changes in patients with CFS -- markers they said pointed to distinct disease stages and would lead to better diagnosis and treatment. CFS, sometimes called myalgic encephalomyelitis or ME, is a controversial and debilitating condition characterised by disabling physical and mental fatigue, poor concentration and memory, disturbed sleep and muscle and joint pain. #United States #Technology #Arabic #science #markets #Latin America #Entertainment #author

Going to the game? Pack earplugs and lose the vuvuzela, WHO says

GENEVA (Reuters) - Sports fans risk having their hearing ruined by vuvuzela trumpets and deliberate attempts to increase stadium noise and they need to start seeing earplugs as something cool, the World Health Organization said on Friday. Shelly Chadha, a WHO expert on preventing deafness, said some U.S. sporting crowds consider breaking noise levels as an achievement, and cited a 136.6 decibel world record claimed by Seattle Seahawks fans in 2013 #Business #Sports #India #Arabic #markets #Argentina #Mexico #author #game
