September 2015

A new paper - Transcriptome profile analysis reflects rat liver and kidney damage following chronic ultra-low dose Roundup exposure has been added to my webpage Chemical poisons and toxins. Essentially this paper concludes that the most widely used pesticide in Western agriculture causes mitochondrial damage at miniscule doses. Initially this manifests with liver and kidney damage, which is not surprising given that these organs are metabolically highly active. But an extra concern is what of the brain, heart and immune system which are all also greatly demanding of energy?

A recent paper (May 2015) entitled "In silico analysis of exercise intolerance in myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome", published by Nicor Lengert and Barbara Drossel in the journal "Biophysical Chemistry", provides further confirmation of Dr Myhill's jointly published papers. In particular, the paper describes how the cardinal symptom of prolonged recovery time after minimal activity results from reduced mitochondrial capacity. The full text of the paper can be located in the "External Links" section of CFS - The Central Cause: Mitochondrial Failure .

Interim Order revoked

On 26th July 2011 I attended a review hearing in front of the Interim Orders Panel at the GMC in Manchester. As a result of the hearing the Panel decided that the Interim Order, imposed on my registration with the GMC in April 2010, was not necessary. The Panel's decision revoked the Interim Order.

All hearings cancelled by the GMC

The GMC has informed me that the proposed Fitness to Practise hearing, scheduled to run for 25 days from the end of November 2011, has been cancelled with no case to answer.

January 2011

  • On 6th January 2011 the Interim Orders Panel, GMC, made the decision to lift the suspension of my GMC registration and to restore my licence to practise medicine. The Panel again placed a small number of procedural conditions on my registration.

27th October 2010

Following the IOP decision on 14th October 2010 suspending my licence to practise medicine, I now give nutritional advice. As a result of this change to my status, my services are currently not exempt from VAT. This means that I have to charge VAT for consultations, either in person or by telephone or by letter. This includes interpretation of test results. To lessen the financial burden on my patients I am lowering prices for these services by 10% before adding VAT to them.

Please, accept this as notification of new prices, which took effect on 15th October 2010.
