Is this a new medical condition or is it related to Morgellons Disease?


Body Bugs
It is a story unlike many we have ever seen. It began with one South Florida woman, and has now grown to involve dozens of people. People claiming to have bugs coming out of their bodies. Dont believe it? Then sit back and watch Patrick Fraser's special investigation, Body Bugs.

It seems clear: a bug. And if you are amazed, look at this. Every morning, when Kathy wakes up, the bed is covered with what appears to be pepper.

Jose put the pepper looking substance under a microscope. It's amplified 100 times and is shocking.

Jose: "You can see it there, how it's moving. When it's all done, it just retracts right back into the cocoon, and again it's just a piece of dirt if you didn't know any better."

At first doctors told Kathy she was, to put it politely, off the deep end. This one wrote she needed psychiatric help.

Jose: "We are all crazy and these pictures are figments of our imagination, and somehow we're able to photograph delusions."

Other doctors examined Kathy and watched as she contstantly scratched her itching body and told her they couldnt find anything wrong. Jose is convinced they are afraid to admit bugs are living in her body.

Jose: "Most doctors don't want to be labeled with that diagnosis, because they get blackballed from the entire medical community."

Jose then sent slides to Harvard University and the CDC. Both had the same conclusion.

Jose: "One person said yes, they're parasites, they're anthropods, but they don't think that they're coming from you. You're just being bitten."

I havent heard much from this. I live in southwest Florida. I hope I don't get them. Ill keep my ears and eyes open for more.

I'm in south florida and I've never heard of anything like that happening.

The lady is worried about this being the next plague, maybe she ought to think of quarantining herself.

You would be correct in the assumption that a GMO is the cause of morgellons, and in the statement that it is affecting other species as well. The causative organism is a modified cyanobacterium, all research done to date point at R. Seeberi as the base organism with higher primate, a marine specie and insect gene input. In other words, this is a huge problem.

Cyano and algae, in more general terms; plankton, represents the biggest body, the biggest weight, the biggest decision maker related to life, because it represents the source code of all life that is present.

This type of information incorporated into this GMO, has begun to exponentially proliferate into the environment and create momentum in a body it feels most comfortable with, including water and soil; this includes freshwater supplies, lakes, rivers and the vast ocean.

You are also correct in thinking that "this is very bad". It is nothing short of a disaster.

They can't stop it, they can't keep science at pace with the speed nature integrates this type element in every life form that is around.

For more information concerning the research that has been done visit and/or

And then demand an investigation as to why our federal health monitors continue to ignore their responsibility to inform the general public as to the existence of this organism.

Here is a bit more of an explanation as was given to me. and also some links to images to show what is being discussed here.

most simply cannot fathom the ramifications of such a disclosure. The infectious agent causing this is caused by a stray target (nondisclosed) created by experimental research done under by a C3 applying lab/proteomics research center. In other words it is a man made creation which has escaped containment.

This target was created for research into artificial skin, wound dressing as well as cancer research tools. This is a military issue of high caliber, enough so to be defended by many parties, hence all the conflicting reports and otherwise lack of any credible information. The microscopic images shown in the video found at (follow the links) is completely out of my area of expertise, I am not a microbiologist. However the Macroscopic images shown and this agents interaction with host are EXACTLY the same thing I am able to show on my own body to anyone that will listen and would like to look. For photos of the fibers, follow these links.

for the picts showing the dissemination in skin follow these links.

Except it seems that for some reason only some are vulnerable to this. How else would you explain that the first woman in the report has notinfected her husband?

I would think that someone needs to look at why the women in the report are vulnerable to this in the first place as well as what they were exposed to.

The links just above are talking about fibers, which does sound more like Morgellon's, but these women have bugs, not fibers coming out of them. I can't imagine living with this.

Just saw a report on this "body bug" syndrome on WSVN Channel 7 news here in South Florida.

The lady was able to show the local reporter, one of these "bugs" from her skin under a microscope... However the lady flew up to New York to have the "stuff" tested, but no bugs or bug parts were found by the specialists she went to see.

They also reported that one of her friends who suffered from the similiar ailment committed suicide.

They also show people with Morgellons protesting at the CDC and said that CDC is now investigating their claims. They showed alot of pictures and skin conditions during the report. It was wierd, the stuff that the people showed coming from their skin.

found it

Body Bugs

You may find it hard to believe, but right now it's impossible to cure because no one knows what's causing it. They do know however, the number of people getting hit with this mysterious disease is soaring. In a follow up special assignment report, the nightteam's Patrick Fraser speaking to more people who are desperately seeking help.

read it, much better than my summarizing skills above.

Just for the record, I have been following a protocol for 7 months to erradicate Lyme and all the concurrent possible co-infections/parasites that your body may have been suseptable to because of it.

It simply involves high does of vitamin C and Pharmacuetical Grade Salt tablets. It's working, and from following the board that is doing the research on it I would think it would work for this. These things cannot exist concurrently with this protocal.

If I had a way to contact these people I would point them there.

It cannot just be done, there is a ramp up protocal to reduce the effects while your body adjusts, but it works. If anyone is interested, feeel free to PM me.

Relentless maybe you can contact the Channel 7 reporter and have him pass your possible treatment on to the woman.

I have to tell you though, most of the people whom I spoke to that saw that news report, thinks the lady is mistaking ordinary clogged pore stuff for bugs or that she has mental problem.

I personally cannot make any judgement on it, it's a "real" problem to that lady and others, so that is all that matters.

But it's not just that one lady. The article also states that a pediatrician has the same condition.

Greg Smith was a pediatrician near Atlanta until Morgellons hammered his body.

Dr. Greg Smith: "I have videos that I've made myself of fibers coming out of my own skin working themselves out and coming out of intact skin."

The thoughtful, well-spoken doctor has had to battle his own medical colleagues as he battles the disease that is destroying his body. Here leading a protest in front of the Centers for Disease Control with signs that read, 'It's Morgellons, it's real and it's spreading.' What the signs don't say? It can kill the people it infects.

At least it also states that the CDC has agreed to investigate it. That's a step in the right direction.

I think the "body bugs" are different from the "fibers aka Morgellons"

Fibers I feel are synthetic probably from sort of toxin, pollution, exposure to something.. While bugs are biological and could be from an infection or parasite.

They are in fact one and the same. What this is all about is that quorum sensing made(engineered) microorganisms have gained the ability to develop into multicellular entities. What this may end up as, pertains to dominant gene input. The insect expressions are much larger and more common than bird or mammal. Rapid fusion, minus embryonic stage. view it yourself here at

I should also add that this issue is much larger than body bugs, or morgellons. What this agent stands to expose, is that all antibiotic resistance emerging today relates directly to experiments performed by C3. Which some of have escaped into public space. This is huge and simply a disaster. for other links which are likely related to this agent and its impact on the environment and human health, consider the following.

Adenovirus Cold Spreads In USA

These locations directly correspond to the morgellons outbreak areas:

The largest outbreaks occurred at four Air Force bases in Texas.

In addition to the cases reported at Lackland, three bases in Texas reported 220 adenovirus-14 infections between March and September.

"The outbreaks at the military bases "may potentially have to do with crowding," Su said.

Oregon identified 31 cases, and the median age of those who fell ill was 53, which is younger than the typical age for patients with severe disease, Su said. Seven people, with a median age of 64 years, died from severe pneumonia.

Washington identified four cases; one, a middle-aged patient with AIDS, died. New York reported one death in a 12-day-old infant.

The CDC report follows a study last month from the Naval Health Research Center in San Diego that found infections at military bases in California, Missouri, Illinois and Georgia in addition to Texas, starting in early 2006.

At least 37 people at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego got sick with adenovirus 14, the paper said."

Bee Colony Collapse Disorder And Viral Disease Incidence Under Investigation

MRSA may top AIDS deaths in U.S

resistant tb, syphilis, etc etc, can likely be traced back to one focal point of accidental release, in the early seventies, originating from one of Europe's largest bio-defense contracting labs.

Some of you may find this strange but i thought parasitic organisms were an accepted part of human biology.

Bacteria could be considered a symbiotic organism if viewed from a certain angle.

Can someone explain to me how exactly this is dangerous to the human body?

EDIT: I'm aware that people aren't exactly interested in providing me the biological information pertaining to the various health issues being raised - i'll follow the links and see what i can find out.

"Understand that many nations work on non disclosed targets in C3 environments, and that a "convenient" diplomatic protocol exists as to how to handle this type of situation.

Its all about statistical significance, and not about a relatively small number symptomatic people, and the fact that people disappear in statistic by way of unrelated cause of death(...)"

Only if major capital gain becomes a factor will the infected be informed how bad they suffer. That's another ten years to go for the people that are seriously affected.

The successful isolation of this element has also the potential to reveal that microbial resistance (anti-biotic resistance) significantly relates to experimental research done by C3; thus governmental subsidized Institutes.

If such institutes are privatized (e.g Harvard University) or not - does not matter. If consistent, it also may reveal that hospital acquired infections are the product of the same "grand medical institute" that tries to eradicate these types of infection.

Facts that can easily be gathered from this research are so confronting that nobody from the medical community dares to associate with it- simply out of fear for career damage and/ or ex- communication that for sure will result in future loss of capital gain.

But again, a research lab will never step forward to disclose (confirm). Facts will be commercialized and kept inconclusive as long as possible. Screening will only add more information to the present fact that quorum sensing made bacteria have gained the ability to grow multi cellular organisms including mammal and bird like expression.

My mother has these parasites. Its called Morgellons Disease and I need all
the help I can get to try and help save her. She has had this for a few
years and is very, very sick. And no one believed her and everything I have found on the internet is exactly what she has described!! And from what I have read, I think it could be cured if the CDC will do something about it!!!! My hope is that you can ingest something that will act as an internal repllent. Until then, we are going to tent (spelling?) the house and she is going to take a lot vitamins to enhance her immune system and then try this product I found online that uses Silver as the active ingredient to literally expell the parasites from the body, when taken internally.

I am new to this site. If you have any advice or help, please let me
know. I'm afraid for my mother's life and she is suffereing like I could
never imagine and I want it to stop! She lost all vision for an entire day two days ago and the emergency room sent her home the same night with antibiotics. This is not the first time she has been to the emergency room. No one will take her seriously. This has been a total nightmare.
If there is anything you can suggest that might help, please let me know.
Thank you

Helpmymom, my heart goes out to both you and your mom. I hope the new meds work. It sounds like a nightmare.

Southcty, thanks so much for your information which was scientific but explained in a way that the lay person can understand. This sounds truly dreadful. My husband was a microbiologist for many years, when he gets home, I'll talk with him and see if he has anything to add.

It all sounds like something from the X-Files.

reply to post by annestacey

I think it is related to Morgellons. As for the black pepper looking stuff, I have seen small airplanes dropping it. It is people doing it to other people. People heal only to have it happen again.

I often wonder if America is under seige. I believe this is just another form of bioterror under the label of disease. Why the government allows this is the question.

The country appears to be becoming a "stepford" nation.

This would be the first mainstream news attention I have seen about it. The reported symptoms seem to go hand in hand with the bugs and and black grit.

Personally I cant ignore the testimonials from people with the exact same symptoms from all walks of life across the whole globe. Health forums are full of desperate people looking for relief and answers.

Why is this being denied???
