Because of the title....I wanted to know why it was reaching Pandemic status. They started investigating in 2006 and it's 2011. 5 years??? to get a result back. I would like to know when the Pandemic started??? That's why the title caught my eye. What makes the disease new???? the results???? I have questions and issues...I'm sorry if I'm overwhelming you....I promise no more coffee for me.

Good luck; I wish things weren't this way here, but sadly enough - they definitely are.

The results of a 2007 study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that 14 percent of Americans — more than 1 out of 10 — are infected with Toxocara, or internal roundworms, contracted from dogs and cats and transmitted by infected feces. Most of those infected with Toxocara are asymptomatic, but CDC officials warn that "this infectious agent is capable of causing blindness and other serious systemic illness, which makes it a public health issue."
Animals do not typically pass on diseases to humans. But when it comes to parasites, they can become a virulent "intermediate host," Uppal said. With parasites living and breeding in warm weather climates like Florida, and thriving in nearby bodies of water, the environment becomes a toxic soup ripe for the transfer. Pets pick up the parasites outdoors, then spread parasitic illnesses through dropped feces that pet owners either step in or somehow get on their skin.
The term zoonotic refers to any disease that is able to jump the divide from animals to people. Microbes created for bioterrorism are zoonotic. There are many known zoonotic diseases, such as Lyme disease and malaria. Vectors are the transmitters of disease-causing organisms that carry the pathogens from one host to another. By common usage, vectors are considered to be invertebrate animals, usually arthropods. Technically, vertebrates can also act as vectors, including foxes, raccoons, and skunks, which can all transmit disease to humans through a bite. Mosquitoes and ticks are the most notable disease vectors, although mites and gnats may also carry disease. Enteric diseases are bacterial and viral infections of the gastrointestinal tract that account for an under appreciated burden of morbidity and mortality domestically and abroad.
believe me I have empathy for people suffering from this very real disease.From what I know of Morgellons these people suffer considerably,and there linking it to gmo's which really isn't surprising at all,and that's what really angers me.How can they mess with our food supply and not expect a bad out come?It doesn't take a scientist to figure that out.

People with the disease experience neurological damage that manifests as difficulty concentrating, inability to process and use language effectively, and generalized brain fog.
Now I know what's wrong with my husband.and.I thought he was just road drunk from driving too much and not getting enough rest. Or that he had a stroke and didn't know it....Please forgive me...for people with this condition it's no joking matter.
For all the healthy at the moment people.... Enjoy it while you can...who knows what could be in store for you just around the corner.
Oh me bad...Are there still Healthy people out there that know that there healthy???...Insurance companies are doing biometric testing now of days to determine how healthy you are and this will help them decide what your preminum is going to be or something like that.edit on 17-8-2011 by relocator because: (no reason given)edit on 17-8-2011 by relocator because: I hope this helps...Ibndhr

If on July 18th they indicated it as reaching pandemic status, why hasn't there been anything on it since then? Or maybe there has and I missed it?
