Is “CFS” the agency’s new Tuskegee?
Hillary Johnson asks:
Is "CFS" the agency's new Tuskegee? I believe that unless we are vigilant history will see it that way. We are observing the natural history of a catastrophic disease in real time. We've been writing live history here, and we can't sit around passively waiting to see how it turns out. The career quacks at the CDC have all the time and money and PR support in the world. Patients have none of those things. But patients are not entirely without resources. For one thing, we can look to the Whittemore Peterson Instititute, which thus far demonstrates no proclivity whatsoever to buy shares in the CFS industry.
