While researching for yesterday's update, Many More Women Than Men, I happened upon this press release while Googling for Morgellons. The strange thing was that it was at the top of the list on Google and it's five months old. The title is
"CDC Confirms Morgellons is Real Disease". It references a study done in 2012 by the CDC. Which is one year after their infamous 3 yr study that branded Morgellons' sufferers as being delusional.
The press release ends with "The researchers concluded that the fibers are clearly biological in nature and are not implanted textile fibers.” It may be probable to assume that since these fibers under the microscope which contain floral and root-like structures that the origin may be via a cross contamination of DNA from plants and humans by way of GMOs.
This study opens the door for future research which is desperately needed in the environmental and epigenetic causes of Morgellons Disease with Lyme Disease and GMOs being the likely areas of interest.

Now, this all sounds great, but there was no link given to this new CDC study to confirm what was said in the press release. And the press release was released in Oct 2017 and the study reported on was in 2012. Why did it take about five years to write this press release? Am I missing something here? Why didn't I hear of this before? I felt like I was in the "dark" for years.
So, I went to theMorgellons Foundation website's research section. Now, you'd think that if that study happened, they would be parading it on their main page, but it wasn't there--no reference to such a study. In fact, they still had a video of a dermatologist refuting the findings of the initial study.
Now this is strange also. The initial study took three years from 2008 to 2011, but the newer study referenced in the press release was concluded in 2012. When did you ever hear of the government getting anything done in a year? Well, I suppose it's possible, but I think highly unlikely.
I then went to my favorite poo poo site, the Mayo Clinic to quote their poo poo rhetoric. I had been there just a few months ago and it crying delusional and acknowledging filaments from the skin which seemed like an oxymoron to me. It still says. "Researchers with the Centers for Disease Control note that the signs and symptoms of Morgellons disease are very similar to those of a mental illness involving false beliefs about infestation by parasites (delusional parasitosis)...Further research is needed to determine whether Morgellons is a new disorder and, if so, to develop diagnostic criteria."I went to the site yesterday and I swear it confirmed that Morgellons was a recognized disease, but that's not what it says today. Don't understand, maybe I'm delusional and need a long vacation. lol
Kay, one of our subscribers, also went on the hunt for this 2012 study and came up short--it's not there. But she did find another study Jan 27, 2012 published in the "Journal of Clinical & Experimental Dermatology Research" titled, Morgellons Disease: A Chemical and Light Microscopic Study which is listed on the Morgellons site, but their link doesn't work.
Raphael B. Stricker, MD is the corresponding author of this study who, if I'm not mistaken, is associated with the Morgellons Foundation. He's also connected with research done in 2013 that identifies Lyme spirochetes contributing to the formation of the filaments and also found on and in the filaments that I reported on last September and is in my book.
The bottom line is that the CDC would not recognize him any more than they recognize the Morgellons Foundation and we have no confirmation of the claim given in the press release that says the CDC recognizes Morgellons as a legitimate disease. There are too many questions for us to get excited.
So, what happened? Apparently someone, with an agenda against GMO's (which I agree with) made a fake press release and Google swallowed it whole. The sad thing is that when someone suffering from Morgellons reads that press release, they will have false hope that finally the CDC will initiate action for more research leading eventually to a cure--down right cruel. I know that even with some questions about what it said and timing, it got me excited for a while.
