ME Association Website

http://www.meassociation.org.uk/

The ME Association have re-designed their website. I think the new site looks good, is much clearer and better laid out than previously, and it can be found by clicking on the link above. Do take a look!

Looking at the front of the site, my main concern is the continued use by MEA of the term Myalgic Encephalopathy instead of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. ME-opathy is not an official, accepted (alternative) name for ME; it is not recognised by the World Health Organisation; and, as I see it, its use only serves to cause further confusion.

For further information, see the article Note on the term "Myalgic Encephalomyelitis" by Eileen Marshall and Margaret Williams, available online at -
