The most striking symptoms of Morgellons are lesions and coloured fibers growing out of them. These fibers can be pulled out with much force however this does not seem to stop further growth. Itching occurs which can so strong that some Morgellon sufferes have been reported to have committed suicide.

At present it seems this condition is in the delusional parasitosis catagory.

I understand what your saying about it being delusional parasitosis.You'd think the threads are there are there not. I heard a radio program with a victim of this disease. It sounded to me like this woman went from being a very productive successful person to one that was physically and emotionaly destroyed. I provided the link to point out the results of my search. I have no experience with this.
Chemtrails are puzzeling to me. If there was aluminum in the exhaust would this not damage a jet engine ?
OTOH...The mural at the Denver airport has been interpreted by some to be linked to mass population reduction and chemtrails. The chemtrails being the rainbow behind the sword of the soldier with the gas mask on, or somthing to that effect.

In an even more provocative finding, Vitaly Citovsky, Professor of Biochemistry and Cell Biology at Stony Brook University in New York, discovered that the fibers contained the substance Agrobacterium, a genus of gram-negative bacteria capable of genetically transforming not only plants, but also other eukaryotic species, including human cells.
If the U.S. has its way, and it usually does when it comes to Codex Alimentarius, GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) will be promoted by making their labeling unnecessary, even though there is significant scientific evidence to warrant a moratorium on the widespread use of GMOs. Severe health problems are already evident with the use of GMOs. Incidentally, the U.S. is the only country in the world where unlabeled use of GMOs is permitted.
Consider this alarming statement:
“Some genetically-manipulated crops are changed so that they produce their own high levels of pesticides. For example, genetically-manipulated ‘Bt’ crops have been shown to emit very high levels of toxins.”

Apparently excellent results have been obtained against this parasite using Nutrasilver.

I mean, what better explanation for a nonexistent disease than a nonexistent cause?
Current scientific consensus holds that Morgellons is not a new disorder and is instead a new and misleading name for known illnesses. Most doctors, including dermatologists and psychiatrists, regard Morgellons as a manifestation of known medical conditions, including delusional parasitosis, although some health professionals acknowledge that an infectious cause could one day be found. Illnesses such as delusional parasitosis can be serious and debilitating, but tested and effective treatments exist.
Despite the lack of evidence that Morgellons is a novel or distinct condition and the absence of any agreed set of diagnostic symptoms...
Could Morgellons disease be the Sci-Fi equivalent of the Stigmata? Meaning that for the most part, people who experience the stigmata (basically reproducing the wounds that Christ suffered on the cross) are deeply religious and could in fact be creating the wounds with their own minds, rather than with divine intervention. Are most morgellon sufferers already pre-disposed to Sci-Fi and conspiracy theories?
Interestingly, the fact that self-reported Morgellons is associated with mental illness is not in dispute. Both sides of the debate find evidence that sufferers have significant levels of psychological, and sometimes, neurological disorder.
Mind Hacks: The Curious Case of Morgellons Disease
For Anne Dill, standing in her backyard, looking over the lake is physically and emotionally painful.
This silence and solitude serves as a constant reminder of what her family is facing.
"We're going to lose everything, our house, our dreams," says Dill.
Five years ago, the Dills bought their dream home in Lake City. They spent most of their free time at their lake with friends, and thought life was pretty close to perfect.
Then, three years ago, Anne, her husband and their four children all got very sick at the very same time.
They think they have Morgellons, even though they have no idea how they would have contracted it.
What are the signs and symptoms of Morgellons disease?
According to the Morgellons Research Foundation, primary signs and symptoms of Morgellons disease include:
* Skin lesions, often accompanied by pain or intense itching
* Fibers — which may be white, blue, red or black — in and on the lesions
* Crawling sensations on and under the skin, often compared to insects moving, stinging or biting
* Joint and muscle pain
* Fatigue significant enough to interfere with daily activity
* Inability to concentrate and difficulty with short-term memory
* Behavioral changes
Other signs and symptoms may include:
* Changes in vision
* Stomach pain or other gastrointestinal symptoms
* Changes in skin texture and color
No, we don't have answers about the Morgellons fiber composition yet. Morgellons fiber samples have been looked at in our collaboration with the Tulsa, Oklahoma, Police Department Forensics Laboratory. They have analyzed a few more fibers (from Morgellons patients) and interestingly enough, they claim that a couple of these Morgellons fibers don't match anything in the data base. Does that happen very often?
First of all, I asked specifically that question the last time I was over there and I was told that whenever they get samples that they do FTIR spectroscopy and it always comes up with a match - except in the case of the Morgellons fibers. So, the technology works great. It's the Morgellons fiber samples that are the unusual things in this process.
