Only SEVEN women out of the 26 surveyed had post-50 onset of CH.
Doesn't sound like a majority to me!
Plus we're not told how many of the MEN in that sample started
CH after age 50.
How can anyone call this "a disease of young men" when (1) once
CHs start, they stay around for decades, and (2) 26% (probably a low figure)
of sufferers of classical CH (see our survey, the widest available in the entire history of
CH research) are women?
I bet most CH women started in their twenties, just as most
CH men did. And I also bet most CH women are episodic,
just as most CH men are.
