    because they think it's misleading people into thinking you can get sick by eating pork.

    What I want to know is this: Why doesn't the CDC want to rename Chronic Fatigue Syndrome? Isn't the general public misled about what CFS is?

    and I agree the CDC should probably rename CFS..................People are not clear about what CFS is. Andrea

    The name is killing us. Although, I am very glad we don't have a name on ours like Swine Fatigue Syndrome :D That would be considerably worse.

    They really never should have named that flu Swine since it's a combo of Avian, Swine and whatever. It'll be interesting to see what they come up with.

    And they could call it (CFS) Fat Grandma Syndrome (which is how I think of it in my mind)......

    Good point, Janice.

    In the meantime, don't kiss any pigs.
