    Does anybody know if HSV-2 has ever been linked to ME? The article mentions that HSV-1 doesn't have the same effect on cognitive decline.

    Just to give some prevalence figures:

    Cytomegalovirus is found in 58% of adults. Ref: 1

    Herpes simplex II is found in 16% of adults. Ref: 1

    Toxoplasma gondii prevalence varies enormously (10% to 90%) from country to country.

    Very interesting. Maybe why my brain is so very screwed up to the point my family is worried that I may have Alzeihemers.. I carry CMV, toxoplasmosis and HSV (I forget though which HSV it is).

    Doesn't CMV vary by country too. I think somewhere I read in the past it was 25% have been exposed to it .
