Joseph H. Brewer, MD, is an infectious disease doctor with a interest in the effect of mycotoxins from mold on chronic illness. His patients include those with HIV/AIDS, Lyme disease, ME/CFS, and mold toxicity.
Dr. Brewer was science advisor to the Whittemore Peterson Institute and co-authored his mold and chronic fatigue syndrome paper with Dr. Jack Thrasher. All of whom were fully educated about Dr. Ritchie Shoemaker's work and "Mold at Ground Zero for CFS".
There was no particular reason to express mold + CFS as a speculative relationship when they had full knowledge that the connection was made physical and tangible by the documented presence of stachybotrys chartarum (black mold) in the clusters of mystery malady that baffled the CDC into creating the CFS syndrome.
