    I thought it particularly interesting about how they talked about the two different viruses possibly working together to cause this health issue.

    ..............

    Ive always wondered if it may be a combo of viral infections which may be causing damage to our bodies etc.

    If this combo is causing prostate cancer in this way.. one would wonder if prostate cancer could be more common in ME/CFS seeing the common involvement of reactivating EBV in us?

    Interesting tania - thanks - my old Dad passed away from prostrate cancer - both my brother and I have ME/CFS symptoms, maybe some predisposition inherited ?.

    That's interesting, my grandfather died of prostate cancer - only cancer ever recorded in our family - and I have CFS/ME.

    Interesting. I find it annoying that we still lack proper testing for reactivated infections. It should be clear by now that EBV and HPV are probably not harmless and can cause severe diseases.
