    I really don't believe in supressing science findings - we are fairly grown up now and probably more aware of our own illnesses and current scientific findings than those trying to hide any facts from us. Roll on the day when a Doc just does not say "well it's a virus".........oh yea but which one.

    Maybe they are afraid that if the unformation gets in the wrong hands, it can be used as a weapon of terrorism.

    XMRV Global Action

    ?"Two groups of scientists who carried out highly controversial studies with the avian influenza virus H5N1 have reluctantly agreed to strike certain details from manuscripts describing their work after having been asked to do so by a U.S. biosecurity council. The as-yet unpublished papers, which are under review at Nature and Science, will be changed to minimize the risks that they could be misused by would-be bioterrorists."

    Maybe, I've been watching too many episode of 24. I didn't watch it when it was on and now I am on a marathon watching it. (It takes my mind of my pain).
