Great find DADI.

Its good to be reminded that CLL patients also get extreme and incapacitating fatigue. Its a miracle the CDC didn't appropriate them to their CFS studies!

I can report that Taipei has serious problems with air pollution, as have many other cities in Taiwan. There are many measures of environmental problems in Taiwan which have increased over the last half century. These could account for a number of increased cancer risks, with a lag of decades between environmental insult and cancers. A large life-style change they mention above is increased consumption of meat. Many businessmen you meet smoke like chimneys.

Throw in infection by previously unknown retroviruses and you have more than enough causes to explain the change. The problem will be sorting these out.
