The biggest study ever done on chronic fatigue syndrome has come up with some surprising results.

For example, the study said taking it easy is not the best treatment. It said exercise and behavior modification are.

The study also said chronic fatigue can also be reversed. Chronic fatigue affects 2 percent of the population.

The new findings appear in the medical journal "Lancet." The study was conducted in Great Britain and included 600 patients.
