In 1999, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) acknowledged that they had diverted millions of dollars, allocated by Congress, for research of chronic fatigue syndrome, to other research programs.
Recently, the CDC released controversial studies that link CFS to to genetic mutations and abnormalities in key physiological processes. The CDC is also sponsoring a $6 million public awareness campaign about CFS. A study released last month by the CDC indicates that CFS is more prevalent than previously thought.
The CDC provides several fact sheets for healthcare professionals.
