The CDC (not official CDC site, meant for employees/public to wail about the CDC and boy they do!) http://www.cdcchatter.net has allowed the following two comments on the site regarding the possible (probable) cover-up of CFIDS Retrovirus out into the public. HAVE A LOOK and make a comment. DO NOT take personal shots at Reeves or Wessely. Comment ONLY on real, factual data, findings, etc. This is a HUGE BOMB that dropped. I am stunned that the webmaster allowed it out there. So, respond with real, accurate data and no personal attacks or hysteria. This might get picked up in the media or read by those that actually can and will do something for CFIDS/ME. I am shocked. But with the Cleveland Clinic and the National institute of Cancer cited, there is more validity than if some puke off the street were to post their own assessment. Look under the heading: Has the CDC lost its Credibility with the American public? http://www.cdcchatter.net Re: Has the CDC lost its Credibility with the American public? (Score: 1, Interesting) by Anonymous on Jan 05, 2010 - 08:51 PM The CDC & Other Federal Orgs MASSIVE Cover-Up of Cancer Causing Virus Many Chronic Fatigue/Immune Dysfunction sick believe that the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and possibly other Federal organizations have covered up at least one if not more deadly Retroviruses that are known to cause cancers - and now the connection to CFIDS with the XMRV Virus is coming out with hard proof and research. Has the CDC and other Federal organizations engineered and either deliberately or accidently allowed one or more deadly Retroviruses into the population? Is transmission only via the nation's blood supply - which is bad enough? OR, is transmission via airborne which means that everyone, everywhere is a target for these deadly Retroviruses? Many do believe that CFIDS and the Retroviruses are highly contagious. The good part of that is that CFIDS sick are far too sick to leave their beds and homes and venture out into public and spread their disease. But what about the blood supply? What about those that have the XMRV in their blood but are asymptomatic? Congress MUST investigate the CDC, CDC/CFS (William Reeves) and find out if our government has indeed created and allowed deadly viruses out into the population - and allowed this situation to continue for more than 30 years. Why else would the CDC do everything in its power to downplay CFIDS, kill off research from government labs, and label CFIDS sick as mental cases when over 6,000 well researched documents and studies show clearly that CFIDS is real, disabling, and affects all of the body's systems including the brain (CFIDS dementia is real and some are in nursing homes because of this). So again, IS the CDC with assistance by other Federal organizations covering up serious viruses from the public? We need ONE insider at the CDC or other Federal organization that will spill the truth and help get the millions of terribly sick and dying the help that they should have had three decades ago. Recognize that YOU and your family are at risk. For more information on the XMRV Retrovirus see www.www.wpinstitute.org - The Whittemore-Peterson Institute (the small, private research lab that discovered this retrovirus with the Cleveland Clinic and the National Cancer Institute - highly credible sources). Also Google XMRV and see the research being done in Mach speed now that it is known that XMRV does cause cancer(s) and is most likely in the nation's blood supply and possibly airborne. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Score: 1, Interesting) by Anonymous on Jan 06, 2010 - 05:28 AM The cancer rates, esp. Leukemia and Lymphomas are about 50 times higher in the Chronic Fatigue/Immune Dysfunction group (NOT using Reeve's definition of CFS, but real CFIDS sick). This data alone should have caused the CDC to move it out back in the 1980's when they too saw these cancer rates but chose - for whatever reasons - to ignore and continue on a path of demean and destroy the patients. The CDC has no credibility with the CFIDS community. And as news of the retrovirus that causes cancer hits the public, the public will lose whatever trust and respect they had for the CDC. So many faked epidemics like Swine Flu, bird flus, SAARS, and yet the one real dangerous and deadly epidemic is CFIDS and that is the ONE real epidemic that the CDC has refused to deal with in any fruitful way. The CDC/CFS people are happy to play psychobabble games and take the funding and waste it - and so here we all are, 30 years later with no movement of any sort from the CDC on CFIDS. No wonder the public has lost all faith and trust in the CDC. If information comes out of the CDC, it is not to be believed - right off the bat.
