Paul Cheney on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and AIDS

In the June 26, 1989 issue of New York Native Neenyah Ostrom covered CFS research pioneer Dr. Paul Cheney’s testimony to Congress concerning the CFS epidemic. Cheney told Congress that [chronic fatigue syndrome] might have a relationship with the AIDS epidemic. Cheney told Congress, that one informal "survey of patients in [CFS] groups from 35 states shows an exponential rise in cases produced each year since the 1970s. This curious temporal and case production relationship with the AIDS epidemic has prompted some researchers to project CFS as an AIDS epiphenomenon. Indeed, the new human herpes virus HHV-6 may be amount the most important co-factors shared by both AIDS and chronic fatigue syndrome."
