It's interesting that the CDC look as if they are now trying to make it look like the WPI are testing an entirely separate disease to what the CDC have been investigating all these years... But will they get away with this, I wonder? The WPI (and now the NIH/FDA) tested CFS/ME patients as diagnosed by the Canadian Consensus definition, which diagnoses 'ME'. So are the CDC now going to try to make the case that they never had a department for 'ME', and that they only ever had a department for 'CFS' which is an entirely separate disease? Can they get away with that? They probably can get away with it, but the CDC has been dealing with classic ME cases ever since the original outbreaks which they were sent to investigate. It's going to be interesting watching the CDC unravel, or tie itself in ever increasing knots until it strangles itself!
