An excerpt from The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Epidemic Cover-up: Anthony Fauci on Chronic Fatigue Syndrome


 In the September 17 issue, Neenyah Ostrom took Anthony Fauci to task, for talking out of both sides of his mouth, on the issue of chronic fatigue syndrome. She noted, “While Fauci testified sup-portively about [chronic fatigue syndrome] in 1988 Congressional hearings, stating that ‘CFS results from a complex interplay between viral agents and immunological effector systems,’ his chief investi-gator of CFS at the NIAID, Dr. Stephen Straus, continues in 1990 to maintain that [chronic fatigue syndrome] is a psychoneurotic illness. Fauci has apparently done nothing to correct public perception of the illness as a psychoneurotic disease, and has taken no perceptible steps to redirect Straus’s research . . . . Fauci does not seem to be aware that the information distributed by the NIAID Office of Communications does not agree with his assessment of CIDS as an illness which [he told Congress] “is triggered by an infectious agent, probably a virus, which grows in lymphoid tissue and results in immune dysfunction.”

     Ostrom noted that, in a New York Times piece on Fauci, Phil Hilts had reported that an unidentified colleague of Fauci had said that the NIAID Director’s “ability to lead comes from his almost obsessive desire to please people,” and he “is very good at telling you what you want to hear, that he will take care of problems, and through it he develops a sort of intimacy. He makes people feel connected to him. That allows him to be seen as being on different sides of the same issue.”

     The sociological and epidemiological problem, that helped catalyze the real epidemic and all its collateral damage, may have been the tragic fact that its de facto AIDS and CFS Czar was a politically savvy and narcissistic little man who told the American people exactly what they wanted to hear about AIDS and CFS—depending on the group he was talking to.

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.
