    schema:description "Julie Rehmeyer felt like she was going to die. She had spent years battling a mysterious illness so extreme that she often couldn't turn over in her bed. The top specialists in the world were powerless to help, and research on her disease, chronic fatigue syndrome, was at a near standstill. Having exhausted the plausible ideas, Julie turned to an implausible one. Going against both her instincts and her training as a science journalist and mathematician, she followed the advice of strangers she had met on the Internet. Their theory--that mold in her home and possessions was making her sick--struck her as wacky pseudoscience. But they had recovered from chronic fatigue syndrome as severe as hers."@en ;
