FAQ page (very, very raw.)


How do you catch Chlamydia Pneumoniae (C. Pn.)? What can C.Pn do? How do you know if someone has chronic C. Pn? Why doesn’t my Doctor say anything about this? What do I do next?   How do you catch Chlamydia Pneumoniae (C. Pn.)?

  • Someone sneezes. It’s spread by the droplets, just like a cold.
  • By the age of 20, about there’s a 50% chance that you’ve had Ch. Pneumoniae at least once. By the age of 60, there’s an 80% chance.

  What can C.Pn do?


Jim mentioned wanting a FAQ page. Here is a very primitive version. Usually the titles at the top will link to the paragraphs further down the page, but I don't know how to do that in this editor.

 I am trying to limit myself to three bullets per answer, and where precision's only impact would be reduced clarity, I tried to choose clarity. I don't want to say anything that's misleading, but I freely used gross generalizations that an interested reader can 'flesh out' later.

 If anyone has other questions that ought to be included, please let me know. If you want me to write a grossly - oversimplified answer, I'll try. If you notice that I've oversimplified to the point that it's just plain deceptive, flag me and I'll try to rewrite it. And if anyone wants to add to the page, I would appreciate it -- Marie, your name especially came up.

Oh, and if you want to correct spelling, grammar, sexist language, etc., chime on in. It's awful to be born with a spelling/grammar gene and then have to spend your life biting your tongue at other's "misteaks."
