Bovine digital dermatitis (BDD) is an emerging infectious disease that causes lameness, decreased milk production, and weight loss in livestock. Proliferative stages of bovine digital dermatitis demonstrate keratin filament formation in skin above the hooves in affected animals. The multifactorial etiology of digital dermatitis is not well understood, but spirochetes and other coinfecting microorganisms have been implicated in the pathogenesis of this veterinary illness. Morgellons disease is an emerging human dermopathy characterized by the presence of filamentous fibers of undetermined composition, both in lesions and subdermally. While the etiology of Morgellons disease is unknown, there is serological and clinical evidence linking this phenomenon to Lyme borreliosis and coinfecting tick-borne agents. Although the microscopy of Morgellons filaments has been described in the medical literature, the structure and pathogenesis of these fibers is poorly understood. In contrast, most microscopy of digital dermatitis has focused on associated pathogens and histology rather than the morphology of late-stage filamentous fibers. Clinical, laboratory, and microscopic characteristics of these two diseases are compared.

Actual Morgellons Fiber

The fact that unusual fiber or filament production is associated with spirochetal infection in BDD might suggest that a similar process is involved in Morgellons disease. Patients with Morgellons disease have evidence of spirochetal infection demonstrated by serological reactivity to B. burgdorferi antigens, clinical Lyme diagnosis, and symptoms consistent with Lyme disease. Both BDD and Morgellons disease appear to have a multifactorial etiology involving spirochetes and coinfecting pathogens. They are both emerging, rapidly spreading diseases. Both BDD and Morgellons disease are predominantly found in females, and a female predominance in patients with persistent Lyme symptoms has likewise been demonstrated.

BDD is recognized by veterinarians to be an important cause of morbidity in dairy cattle, causing a significant financial loss for the dairy industry and justifying the degree of research attention it has received. In the case of Morgellons disease, mainstream medicine has written off people with unexplained dermopathy as delusional. Media and the Internet are said to be factors contributing to its increasing incidence and geographical spread. The Internet through its ability to instantly disperse information, reliable or not, is blamed for misinforming patients and causing support of disease beliefs that are said to lack scientific evidence. The lack of a universally accepted clinical definition for Morgellons disease has resulted in patients with various diseases, some psychiatric and others not, being categorized together in many studies. On the other hand, the few researchers who have examined patients exhibiting dermopathy with fibers that are subcutaneous or imbedded in lesions have provided convincing evidence that the disease is not self-inflicted and that a pathogen may be involved. Some patients with itchy dermopathy can be expected to scratch lesions, but that does not mean that an underlying pathology does not exist.

Actual Morgellons Lesion

There is strong evidence that Morgellons is not a delusional disease. Fibers are found under unbroken skin, indicating that they are not self-inflicted. Because they are not self-implanted textile fibers, they must be produced within the skin. The lack of detectible pathogens in lesions suggests also that fibers are human cell products.

BDD are the cells most likely to produce these fibers. They are the predominant cells found in skin, and they are found in hair follicles. Fibers have been found embedded in and piercing skin, and they have been observed growing out of hair follicles. Recently we examined patterns of fiber formation in patients with Morgellons disease, and we found that these fibers possess physical and microscopic characteristics of keratin, often with elaborate shapes and reflected colors.

In view of the above discussion, there is evolving evidence that Morgellons fibers have physical properties consistent with keratin. Keratin and chitin are the strongest known biofibers, and keratin shows no cellular structure. Likewise Morgellons fibers are very strong and show no cellular structure, consistent with keratin filaments. They are colored blue, red, purple, and black, which are all colors found naturally in keratin. Solvents have not been able to extract pigments. Keratin can demonstrate different colors including blue, red, and purple, not from pigment production but from microscopic refractive structures that produce constructive interference of light diffracting from structural layers.  Bacteria have been shown to influence and enhance color intensity in keratin.96 The fibers demonstrate a “metallic-looking” sheen, consistent with keratin and iridescent coloring. Morgellons fibers fluoresce under ultraviolet light, a property that has been observed to occur with keratin fibers. Thus keratin composition may explain the “mysterious” fibers in Morgellons disease. The etiopathogenesis of these fibers remains to be determined.

While scientific research has elucidated many clinical and laboratory features of BDD, much of the mystery surrounding Morgellons disease has yet to be resolved. The belief held by mainstream medicine that Morgellons disease is a delusional psychiatric illness deters scientific investigation concerning this phenomenon. Morgellons disease does not appear to be a delusional disease, as demonstrated by fibers occurring under unbroken skin, and patients with Morgellons disease have clinical and laboratory evidence indicating an infectious inflammatory disease process similar to BDD. Comparison between these emerging pathologies may reveal the secrets behind the human dermopathy.

MRSA Actually CAUSED 2009 H1N1 Flu Pandemic ‘Deaths’ of Children

the Truth comes out:

by S. L. Baker, features writer of (NaturalNews)

Remember two years ago when every news show featured hysterical reports about the so-called H1N1 pandemic and how the supposed killer flu was striking down healthy kids? True, many previously healthy children became critically ill, developing severe pneumonia and respiratory failure. And some tragically died after being diagnosed with H1N1. But was that really the accurate explanation of what caused their death?

According to the largest nationwide investigation to date of the flu in children who became critically ill, scientists from Children’s Hospital Boston have found another reason to explain the severity of the youngsters illness. It turns out that it most likely wasn’t H1N1 alone that caused healthy children to become so ill many died.

Instead, these kids were unknowingly infected with something else. That additional infection, the superbug known as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), spiked the risk for flu-related deaths 8-fold in children who were otherwise believed to be totally healthy before they became ill.

Almost all of these children who were found to be infected with the superbug were immediately treated with vancomycin, considered to be best treatment for MRSA. Yet they died despite being administered this powerful antibiotic and their deaths were blamed on the flu. But the new research suggests it was the MRSA that played a huge role in killing these children.

“There’s more risk for MRSA to become invasive in the presence of flu or other viruses,” study leader Adrienne Randolph, MD, MsC, of the Division of Critical Care Medicine at Children’s Hospital Boston. Said in a statement to the media. “These deaths in co-infected children are a warning sign.” He added this is especially alarming given the rising rates of MRSA infections being carried widely among children.

“It is not common in the U.S. to lose a previously healthy child to pneumonia,” Randolph said. “Unfortunately, these children had necrotizing pneumonia eating away at their tissue and killing off whole areas of the lung. They looked like immunocompromised patients in the way MRSA went through their body. It’s not that flu alone can’t kill – it can – but in most cases children with flu alone survived.”

MRSA risk continues to spread

Sixty percent of the youngsters investigated for the new study already had sometimes serious health problems before contracting the flu. But of the 251 children (30 percent) previously healthy children included in the research, the only risk factor that was identified which likely contributed to their increased risk of dying was a diagnosis of a MRSA infection in the lung. The researchers expressed surprise that the antibiotic used to treat the MRSA-infected children didn’t work and suggested the drug couldn’t penetrate the lungs or the disease moved too rapidly.

Recent studies have shown a worrisome rise in the number of youngsters who are carriers of MRSA. A 2010 study published in Pediatrics found that the number of children hospitalized for MRSA infections increased from 2 in 1,000 admissions in 1999 to 21 in 1,000 admissions by 2008. The cause appears to be the never-ending and growing use of antibiotics in people and animals. “The more antibiotics we take, the more we colonize ourselves with antibiotic-resistant organisms such as MRSA,” Randolph noted.

Curiously, the researchers are not emphasizing going after the cause and spread of MRSA infections as much as they are using their findings to push for flu shots. Their study, just published in the journal Pediatrics, promotes flu vaccination among all children aged 6 months and older.

Once Called Morgellons, Dr. Karjoo Now Calls it the “Karjoo Phenomenon”

When you visit Dr. Karjoo’s website, you will see this logo and warning about NutraSilver®.

On the other hand, when you watch his video about NutraSilver®, you will see him endorse NutraSilver®. Hmmmm?  Might this be about money?

The following is directly from Dr. Karjoo’s website;

____________________________________________

Announcement and Warning

From Dr. Rahim Karjoo
Dr. Karjoo does not recommend Nutrasilver orally for Morgellons treatment.——-

“Please notice that on Dr. Karjoo’s front page, his ‘proof statement’ talks about silver COMPOUNDS, NOT Colloidal Silver. Apparently he does not understand the fundamental differences between Colloidal Silver and Silver Compounds. It speaks about “occupational exposure in silver mining and the photographic industries.” What does that have to do with colloidal silver?  Absolutely nothing. Don’t you agree? -NutraSilver

_______________________________________________________________And now for some REAL Facts

Real colloidal silver is made with real silver and distilled water. Real colloidal silver contains nothing else; especially minerals like sulfur, sodium  and chlorides.  Combining minerals with colloidal silver changes the substance entirely.  In scientific circles, this is referred to as “silver compounds.” Dr. Karjoo has certainly proven his ignorance of the subject for me.  How about you? Are you interested in really getting rid of Morgellons Symptoms?  Here is how…..
