Why your doctor has such resistance to infection as a source to chronic disease?
Eventually we hope to have more detailed discussions of:
- The causal vs co-factor question.
- A brief look at the arguments which refute Cpni as a causal factor (such as the cardiac findings that two weeks of zithro doesn’t prevent future heart attacks) and the counter arguments (e.g. that two weeks of zithro is a ridiculous treatment given persistencei). This should be done at least for cardiac, msi, arthritis.
- How methodological differences between studies and logical confusion cause premature rejection (maybe premature expostulation!) of emerging findings.
An excerpt here from David Wheldoni's book review of "The Potbelly Syndrome" where David describes some of the difficulty doctors have looking for occult infectionsi, and a page on his website where he discusses the difficulty doctors have going against what has been so ingrained in them in training.

David Wheldon's "The Curate's Egg" http://www.davidwheldon.co.uk/peer-review.html
For those not anglophiles, the phrase means:
"Something bad that is called good out of politeness or timidity."
The origin of the phrase, the George du Maurier cartoon - "True Humility", printed in the magazine Punch, 9th November 1895, gives fuller insight into its meaning, which relies to some extent on an appreciation of irony.
TRUE HUMILITY. Right Reverend Host. “I’m afraid you’ve got a bad Egg, Mr. Jones!” The Curate. “Oh no, my Lord, I assure you! Parts of it are excellect!
