Statistics on disease prevalence often inflated
KR Washington Bureau | 04/13/2005 | Statistics on disease prevalence often inflated: "A Baltimore Sun report says 20 million Americans suffer from depression. A patient-care newsletter says 10 million Americans older than 50 have the bone-wasting disease osteoporosis. Other published reports say 13 million Americans have hypothyroidism, 7.9 million are alcoholics, 40 million have the hearing defect known as tinnitus, 62 million have digestive diseases and 70 million have some form of arthritis.

Add up the published claims about disease prevalence and the average American has at least two ailments at a time."
