CDC: US epilepsy cases at all-time high
More than 3.4 million American children and adults have epilepsy, a number that is increasing and higher than ever before, according to findings recently published in Morbidity and Mortality Report. "Epilepsy has been assessed only intermittently in population surveys," Matthew M. Zack, MD, and Rosemarie Kobau, MPH, of the division of population health, National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, CDC wrote. "Groups interested in reducing epilepsy prevalence need updated estimates of the numbers of persons living with epilepsy nationally and within their states."
