Brussels International Scientific Declaration on EHS and MCS[edit | edit source]

In 2015, the 5th Paris Appeal Congress at the Royal Academy of Medicine published a declaration on MCS and electrohypersensitivity[2] which stated:

"The nocebo effect is not a relevant nor a valid explanation when considering scientifically valuable blind provocation studies, since objective biological markers are detectable in patients as well as in animals."

ME/CFS - An acronym that combines myalgic encephalomyelitis with chronic fatigue syndrome. Sometimes they are combined because people have trouble distinguishing one from the other. Sometimes they are combined because people see them as synonyms of each other.
