Much to my amazement, someone posted a comment on why CFIDS has not been taken seriously by the CDC. They believe that a Retrovirus was allowed out, either accidently or delibertly by the Feds and thus began the NIH/CDC and other federal agency cover-up of CFIDS. At first it sounded a bit "out there" but thinking about it I realized that maybe they were right. What else could explain why CFIDS has been demeaned and funding not provided like anyother disease - and our disease is pretty bad and quite destructive. Have a look at http://www.cdcchatter.net under the topic about the CDC losing Credibility with the American Public. The comment is at the very bottom. Add your own input but don't make personal attacks at CDC staff. Be accurate and use solid data, etc. I don't know of what value this whole thing is - but, it may well get to the right CDC people who know what really is going on with CDC and CFIDS. None of this makes sense to me how a true epidemic can be ignored while stupid flus like Swine Flu is hyped and the true numbers for death are under 3% and the numbers for sick are really low - with most illnesses reported as upper resp. infections and not Swine Flu or even a virus. But 800 people at the CDC are working on Swine Flu when they should be working on CFIDS. www.cdcchatter.net - site is meant for CDC staff and the public and is NOT supported, etc by the CDC.
