Lisa Petrison - From "The World is Going to Hell in a Handbasket"..

 

Cort Johnson reports that a study of Lenny Jason's says that of a sample of "healthy controls," 16% met the ICC criteria for M.E., 21% met the CCC criteria for "ME/CFS," and 1/3 met the Fukuda criteria for "CFS."

Especially for the ICC (which has pretty strict criteria and requires a 50% reduction in activity), I find that really shocking. Are we really at the point where 16% of the population is that sick? Or was something wrong with that control group?
