    Chris Snell from the PFL just finished testifying about PEM - showing exercise tests both before and POST-exertion - very good testimony verifying the existence of PEM! I hope they make this available for later viewing - he will answer questions right now.

    The above link can also be used to watch the last day tomorrow.

    Snell was asked about obesity and deconditioning as possible explanations for poor performance of CFS patients. He was very good, and just stated very simply that obese people have no trouble working a 40-hour week and that people who are out of shape do just fine on the second day of exercise stress testing. He made it very clear that the level of disability on the second day (PEM) of people with CFS is unprecedented.

    If only the CDC et al would listen!
