there must be somthing in the water. I live in Syracuse, NY. City + surrounding area gives a population of about 1,000,000. I KNOW of only a handful of folks with CH that live in the entire region. This includes the finger lake region. (big area) And as I said, even with an error of 10X i.e. 1 in 3,000, the probability of meeting (yes, you have to get to know someone before you know they have CH) is low. Getting to know 3000 people well enough for you to know of their medical conditions would take a LONG time!
