    The first study shows high levels of pathogenic bacteria and increased intestinal permeability in Chronic Heart Failure patients. The second is the Jason study that found that 20% of ME patients died of heart failure, at an average of 58 years, compared to an average of 83 years for the general population.

    I find this quite worrying, as I have been diagnosed with a Yersinia infection (one of the pathogenic bacteria they found in the CHF group), and my father had a similar illness to me and died at 68 from a heart attack.
