I thought it was interesting!

It does raise some questions for me, though.
If his study on boys with autism taking the drug suramin is repeated with ME/CFS patients, and he finds that we also respond well to the drug, that sounds really great!

But I still want to know WHY so many people are getting stuck in a state of "Cell Danger Response" these days. Why is it happening more now than it did 50 years ago?

I am worried that we will all take suramin, feel better, and then 5-10 years later all get cancer. Because he is treating the symptoms of ME/CFS, but we will still not be doing anything to remedy the root cause of the illness. What if if the root cause turns out to be something like glyphosate? And it's still all over in our food and water?
