Functional Impairment in CFS, Fibro

This is really worth looking at because it used the Canadian Consensus Criteria, which I would have thought would give a reduced estimate of prevelence - but they came up with a prevalence rate of 1.3% for CFS - and over 7% for CFS for prevalence among women of prime working age.

Furthermore, they showed that the three conditions together impacted one in twenty Canadians.

That's pretty impressive, I think.
