The CDC/CFS program under Reeves wasted millions of dollars on psychobabble that was intened to damage and demean the ME/CFS sick and further damage any research on the WPI/NCI/CC and NIH/FDA/Harvard positive studies on this newly discovered Retrovirus.
Reeves was removed from his position and Dr. Elizabeth Unger replaced him. There is a large group of people in the US, UK and other countries who do NOT want the information of this Retrovirus out into the public.
Reasons might include the pressure from insurance companies for health and disability claims, face saving for the CDC since they dropped the ball on CFS in 1981 or possibly a cover-up of this Retrovirus and its origins.
Was this a man-made Retrovirus that was released by the government/military accidently or intentionally? But a cover- up has been underway for the last 30 years.
