“How common is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome: How long is a piece of string?” asks UK-based CFS researcher Peter D. White, MD

If “accurate and representative of the USA as a whole,” the CDC’s new large-population report of CFS prevalence in Georgia “would suggest that some 7.5 million Americans were sufferers, compared to the previous estimates of 0.7 to 1.2 million,” observes U.K.-based CFS researcher Peter D. White, MD, in his commentary released the same day as the June 8 CDC report on "Prevalence of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in metropolitan, urban, and rural Georgia."

But “Could this really be true?” White asks. He proceeds to discuss “three main reasons why we should be cautious about interpretation and generalizing from this finding.”

And “What can we conclude from this very large survey?” Several things, Dr. White writes. In particular:

n “Although methodological issues may help to explain the high prevalence of CFS found in this study, the argument can still be made that the prevalence of CFS is greater than previously thought.”

n And “CFS is at least as common in ethnic minorities in the USA as in the ethnic Caucasian majority; a welcome replication of previous studies. CFS is not an exclusively white syndrome.”

Go to the ImmuneSupport.com library to read the full text of Professor White’s commentary, “How common is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome; How long is a piece of string?” published June 8, 2007 in Population Health Metrics.
