Will Canada be the first to admit that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and AIDS are one epidemic?


Scott Simpson and Jonathan Lyon have personal stories that could finally bring Chronic Fatigue Syndrome out of the AIDS closet and force scientists to consider the possibility that they are part of one epidemic with one cause. Will that cause turn out to be HHV-6? Will the real retrovirus that links CFS and AIDS turn out to be HERV-K18 which is reactivated by HHV-6?

Scott Simpson says he has both HIV and what Judy Mikovits calls "Non-HIV AIDS" (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis or MECFS). While he discusses these as separate diseases, is it possible they are really just the two faces of one disease? Is he the Patient Zero of a new paradigm for CFS/AIDS?

The novelist Jonathan Lyon has Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. His father died of AIDS. Does that also show the epidemiological connection between the two epidemics?

Isn't it a time for a NIH conference devoted to just exploring the connection between Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and AIDS? Shouldn't activists demand that Francis Collins of NIH and Robert Redfield of the CDC begin major research into the relationship between the two epidemics and HHV-6 as well as HERV-K18?

Scott Simpson's Story.





HIV was the best thing to ever happen to me.
But having ME is the worse.
I told the Federal Health Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor as much at a Town Hall in April. She invited me to meet with her.
In July myself and some other ME patient advocates traveled to Moncton to meet with her, and others joined by video.
Yesterday in Montreal for the 'special announcement' we were able to chat again. Here are some pics of some quality time.
When I got HIV it was obviously not a good thing physically or otherwise - but when I was doing HIV advocacy, there was a point where I realized that my experience working with other passionate, collaborative folks to bring HIV meds to Malawians with HIV, had turned living with HIV for me, from a negative into a positive: I was able to say 'HIV is the best thing that ever happened to me'.
When I got ME and then involved with ME advocacy, I often wondered if I would ever have that same experience. I've been working with passionate, collaborative people in the ME community for a few years, and yesterday's announcement by the Health Minister about the ME research funding was a pivotal step toward bringing equitable health care to Canadians with ME.
The cruel irony that I went from advocating for access to health care for one of the poorest countries in the world, to advocating for access to health care in one of the wealthiest countries in the world is not lost on me --- and it is magnitudes more challenging with ME due to decades of medical error and stigma.
As Scientific Director Dr Karim Khan said yesterday to physicians, "remove the insult from this injury".
And our Primary Investigator researcher Dr Alain Moreau said, ME is "the medical enigma of the 21st century".
These are powerful statements for funding and for patient care and to stop the medical harm.
When I can say that ME is treated as effectively as HIV, then my own HIV ranking as 'best thing' would be usurped. I look forward to the day I can say "ME is the best thing that ever happened to me".
The announcement of $1.4 million (a mere crumb compared to HIV funding) for ME research funding and to launch the ICanCME (clever eh?) Research Network is pivotal to the (sad) history of ME in Canada.

Jonathan Lyon's Story
This is a show that could revolutionize the way people look at Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and AIDS. Charles Ortleb discusses Jonathan Lyon, who has written Carnivore, a novel that is a "revenge tragedy" inspired by his struggle with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Lyon may soon become the most talked-about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome victim in the world. Jonathan Lyon has suffered from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for ten years, and in Attitude magazine he reports that he watched his "dad die of HIV." Lyon's condition is referred to as "Non-HIV AIDS" by former National Cancer Institute researcher Judy Mikovits. Ortleb asks the painfully obvious question of whether there is a connection between Lyon's "non-HIV AIDS" and his father's "HIV AIDS.

60 percent of people without HIV may test positive to viral load for the virus. WTF?

Can the CFS community convince Congressman Nadler to get back involved with CFS?

Now an audiobook!






On April 16, 1996, Congressman Jerrold Nadler spoke on the floor of Congress about his request for a General Accounting investigation into how the CDC had handled the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome epidemic. Nadler did that at the urging of Charles Ortleb, the publisher and the New York Native and his reporter Neenyah Ostrom. Ortleb and Ostrom had made the case to Nadler that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and the virus it had been linked to, HHV-6, were serious public health issues.         
                                      
In an interview in New York Native with Neenyah Ostrom,Congressman Nadler said, "Congress can mandate research into CFS as a viral disease. Maybe it will turn out that HHV-6A is the cause of CFS; maybe it will turn out that other viruses are involved. But Congress can mandate research into CFS as a contagious, viral disease. I will certainly try to get Congress to do that as soon as possible."

Unfortunately, back in 1996, Nadler's warning to Congress and the medical establishment fell on deaf ears. But now that the Democrats have regained power in the House of Representatives, the newly prominent Congressman Nadler may finally be able to bring the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome epidemic and HHV-6 to the public's attention.

This book by Charles Ortleb, which details Neenyah Ostrom's diligent reporting on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, is necessary reading for anyone who wants to know the whole history of an epidemic which has been hidden in plain sight. For a decade, starting in 1988, Ostrom reported on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and the damage that the virus HHV-6 does to patients. What her reporting uncovered about the true nature of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome epidemic will shock you. 

In The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Epidemic Cover-up, Charles Ortleb recounts his newspaper's fascinating struggle to get the medical and political establishment to pay attention to Ostrom's pioneering investigative reporting on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. 

By the time you finish Ortleb's stunning memoir, you will understand why the CDC has been unwilling to tell the public the truth about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. The CDC does not want the public to know that Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a transmissible illness linked to a virus that affects every system in the body. They have covered up the illness for so many decades that the neglected virus is totally out of control. Now it is causing a long list of other illnesses and many cancers. The CDC has put us all in danger.

Ostrom's decade of reporting on HHV-6 was recently vindicated by this statement from scientists at the University of Wurzburg:"While HHV-6 was long believed to have no negative impact on human health, scientists today increasingly suspect the virus of causing various diseases such as multiple sclerosis or chronic fatigue syndrome. Recent studies evensuggest that HHV-6 might play a role in the pathogenesis of several diseases of the central nervous system such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression or Alzheimer's." 

The big question about Neenyah Ostrom and New York Native is this: How many lives would have been saved if the scientific establishment and the mainstream media had paid more attention to Neenyah Ostrom's reporting on HHV-6 and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in New York Native?             

One day, if there is any justice in the world, the CDC and the medical establishment will apologize for not paying attention to Neenyah Ostrom's groundbreaking work on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome that Charles Ortleb published in New York Native. That would be a fitting end to one of journalism's greatest David and Goliath stories.    


Anyone who wants to help Congressman Nadler and the other members of Congress who are trying to end the suffering of millions of people with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, needs to read The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Epidemic Cover-up.

Want to learn more about HHV-6, which is causing the endogenous retrovirus problem in AIDS and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?


If you have Amazon Prime or Kindle Unlimited you can immediately begin reading this book about the history of HHV-6.


If you have Amazon Prime or Kindle Unlimited, you can immediately begin reading The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Epidemic Cover-up and you will soon understand why the facts about the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome epidemic have been hidden from the public for almost four decades.









This is the book causing heated debates about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and HHV-6, "The Fifty Shades of AIDS Virus," in laboratories, doctor's offices, and homes all over the world.

                                                              


In his bestselling book, The Black Swan, Nassim Nicholas Taleb wrote, "I see the risks of a very strange acute virus spreading throughout the planet." This book by Charles Ortleb warns that the virus causing Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is that virus.

This book belongs in the library of anyone who wants to know the disturbing history of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome epidemic and the deadly virus HHV-6. Why have the CDC and NIH pretended that the communicable disease fraudulently called "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome" is a mystery for over three decades? By the end of this book of inconvenient truths the answer is crystal clear. The shocking news and bold analysis in this page-turner could lead to a revolution in the science and politics of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, fibromyalgia, AIDS, autism, and many other illnesses. Scientists, doctors, nurses, patients, journalists, politicians, and historians must begin their journey to a full understanding of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome epidemic with this book.

As the publisher and editor-in-chief of a small newspaper in New York, Charles Ortleb was the first journalist to devote a publication to uncovering the truth about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. He assigned Neenyah Ostrom the duty of following every twist and turn of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome story. No newspaper in the world did more to warn the world about the virus which seems to be triggering Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and many other immunological disorders. Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and AIDS are just the tip of the HHV-6 iceberg.

This provocative book will end the injustice of the silent treatment Neenyah Ostrom's reporting has been getting from the media and The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome community. Ostrom blew the lid off one of the biggest medical secrets of our time: the link between the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome epidemic and AIDS.

Ostrom interviewed most of the major researchers in the field, as well as countless patients and government scientists. She uncovered so many similarities between Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and AIDS that she came to the conclusion that they are part of the same epidemic, and she argued that until their connection is admitted by top government researchers, there is little hope of making real progress in the fight against Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Charles Ortleb's book captures all the challenges and excitement of running a small newspaper that was publishing a brilliant journalist who essentially was the Woodward and Bernstein of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome epidemic. In Rolling Stone, David Black said Ortleb's newspaper deserved a Pulitzer Prize. Randy Shilts praised Ortleb's newspaper in And the Band Played On.

                                                            


This book continues the work Ortleb has been doing to raise awareness about HHV-6 and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome at his website HHV-6 University. Fewer and fewer people now pretend that HHV-6 is harmless. Thanks to Ortleb's efforts, more and more people are abandoning HHV-6 denialism and admitting the virus is at the center of a public health disaster.

 Hillary Johnson, the author of Osler's Web, called it "A rollicking, fascinating and important memoir."
