Georgia database for unknown disease!!!!

Well, this seems innocent enough on the surface. And I certainly believe it should move forward because of the nature of this new unknown affliction.

But the implications are rather frightening.

Georgia has established a database for those suffering from what state health officials are calling "unidentified dermatosis syndrome," a.k.a. Morgellon's Disease. For those who aren't familiar with this, Morgellon's has been an up-and-coming medical issue afflicting scores of people, mainly in the south, with a strange rash that produces red and/or black-like fibers. Victims complain of experiencing near-intollerable feelings of creey-crawlies under the skin in the infected areas.

The CDC and health officials had, until recently, dismissed these claims as delusions or psychosomatic illnesses. Now, they actually are open to the possibility that they're dealing with something very real.

Anyway, here's the document that establishes the database:

For so long now doctors have been diagnosing these patients as having a mental disorder because the disease is new and virutally unknown. But it doens't mean it's not real just ask these patients.
You know we are continually poisoning our air and water and injesting contaminents in large amounts daily. Surely these will have consquences to our immune systems and externally as well.

What baffles me is that it took so long for the CDC of all places to acknowledge this disease and begin research into it. Why is it so far fetched to believe that with all of the pollutents that a new form of disease and bacteria will emerge?

It's also maddening because the feeling is that doctors hold themselves in God like status so when new diseases ones they have never heard of do emerge they are quick to say it's the patients mind and it's mental. It seems that if it's not in a book to be studied by someone other than themselves who have discovered these things then they don't exist.

Kudos to the small group of independent doctors that took this a step further to investigate the actual symptoms these people suffered and took the actual person into consideration instead of assuming it wasn't real.
