How many people have epilepsy? Survey results

The Epilepsy Survey results are in showing how much our voters really know about epilepsy:

More people have epilepsy than Cerebral Palsy, Multiple Sclerosis, and Parkinson's Disease combined. True or false?

The right answer is: True

Epilepsy is more prevalent than Cerebral Palsy (CP), multiple Sclerosis (MS) and Parkinson’s Disease (PD) all together!  If you seem to hear more on the news and in advertisements about MS, CP or Parkinson’s part of it may be because these organizations, patients with these conditions and loved ones are being more vocal and visible.  We have a long way to go to bring epilepsy out of the shadows!

True 83%
False 17%
