The Real ME: A Stock Photography Resource for the Media
We’ve all seen them in the news stories about ME/CFS: the guy in a suit at the office, yawning; the beautiful woman sitting at her desk with her immaculate make-up and elegantly coiffed hair, hand to her head and looking slightly pained.

    Sorry if this is an obvious question but searching only confused me.

    Anyhow, a healthy person I've been updating on XMRV etc has asked me and I'd like to give good info.

    Other stats welcome too.

    Thanks!

    Firstly, it's important to get terminology correct.
    Incidence is the amount of people who become ill in any one year.
    But the figure that is usually looked for is prevalence: the amount of people ill at any one time.

    This issue was covered in this thread:
