How many people have pku?

I have PKU, and I find this question irresponsible. Instead of asking the question, "Do people die of PKU?" you apparently assume it is a fact that people can and do die of this disease without providing any evidence whatsoever. When parents first discover that their child has PKU many of them go to the web to get more information. It is bad enough that the first thing many of them read is "can lead to severe mental retardation" without realizing there are successful treatment options. But this question is even more irresponsible. I would highly recommend you revise it or clarify it, because it is dangerous and destructive.

PKU is the acronym for a condition called phenylketonuria.
