Absolutely. But - it's important to recognize that modern diseases do NOT result from direct "cause-and-effect" relationships. ...Most modern
diseases result from complex interractions between multiple factors. Cutting edge science is multi-disciplinary and involves 'adaptive systems
analysis' that looks at how different factors work together to create a disease.
RE: AIDS. My research suggests that AIDS mutated (almost) naturally from a disease called fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD), which first appeared in the
world in USA, early 1900's. The disease probably started with contaminated vaccines given to US soldiers in WWI. FMD was officially acknowledged in
1938 as a new disease (Leadbetter and Buchbinder(?)), after it was found to be transmitted congenitally.
FYI - FMD first causes mutations in the stem cell for connective tissue inside the blood and lymph vessel walls. This then causes "vasospasms" that
interrupt blood supply to various parts of the body - including bone marrow. Amongst other things, interrupting the blood supply to bone marrow
disrupts the immune system
, and can result in mutations.
FMD is linked to mutations in the HLA-DRw6 pathway, as is AIDS.
More, HLA-DR was identified in the early 1980's as the first step leading to
other separate and distinct mutations - there were even world conferences about it, usually titled something like "The HLA-DR6 Effect."
...In its 3rd stage, FMD causes cold-sore-like lesions to break through blood vessel and smooth muscle walls (ie., in the gut or airways). ...These
lesions create open doors for any new infectious microbe that happens along - then, the FMD microbe and the new microbe team up and cooperate, and
the FMD also "hitchhikes" on the virus, bacteria, fungus, protozoa or whatever. ...so regional differences in mutations are often determined by the
locally prevalent breed of infections.
...FMD involves mis-folding of an actin protein - and the latest research suggests that this protein is not only infectious but able to infect cells
across species and kingdom lines. ...This 'actin connection' helps explain how new microbes, diseases and 'super-bugs' evolve.
...When you drop the old-science "cause-and-effect" expectation and start looking at multiple factors. it all comes clear. Add in factors like
contaminated vaccines, SV-40, heavy metal and chemical contaminations, and radiation fallout just to name a few - and you find FMD, AIDS, diabetes,
arthritis, PTSD, and Gulf War Syndrome
- just to start.
Once FMD was present in the population it could be "tweaked" - and new diseases could be created just by exposing victims to new
