Petition Make public all documents relating to Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

We the undersigned request that all information relating to M.E. (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) and CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), including correspondence with the medical profession (Ref: BN 141/1), held in the National Archives, Kew, UK, as a closed document and not available for public access, after 78 years, until 2072, is made freely available.

It is believed that such revelation may yield clues to a better understanding of a physical cause or underlying disease process of a discrete neurological illness, Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, unjustifiably bundled within the collective diagnosis CFS or taken to be synonymous with it This might, in turn, lead to effective treatment and hopefully a cure or significant recovery for this dreadfully debilitating illness, which affects millions of people worldwide.
