The Extinction Chronicles

One of the more serious impacts of human-caused climate disruption occurs when seawater absorbs excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. When this occurs, the carbon dioxide reacts with the water to form carbonic acid, which then ultimately reduces its pH level. For much of the marine life in the oceans, the consequences of this will be dire.

“Animals that have a calcium carbonate shell such as, corals, coralline algae, pteropods, bivalves…

Early Research

From ABC PrimeTime – Aug. 9, 2006

Forensic scientist Ron Pogue at the Tulsa Police Crime Lab in Oklahoma checked a Morgellons sample against known fibers in the FBI’s national database. “No, no match at all. So this is some strange stuff,” Pogue says. He thinks the skeptics are wrong. “This isn’t lint. This is not a commercial fiber. It’s not.”
The lab’s director, Mark Boese, says the fibers are “consistent with something that the body may be producing.” He adds, “These fibers cannot be manmade and do not come from a plant. This could be a byproduct of a biological organism.”

Audio Interviews with Dr. Wymore


[This is the quote I was looking for:]


Wymore said he sees colleagues doing interesting, less controversial research and sometimes longs to participate.

But his immediate future lies with Morgellons: “My goal has pretty much always been that I will keep doing this Morgellons research until other labs better suited to it completely just get involved and quickly make progress and I’m not necessary, that would be one condition”.

“Or we, or someone else, figures out the cause of this, so I guess, in either case, I’ll keep doing this until I’m not necessary.”


Under Scrutiny

OSU (Oklahoma State University) Biomedical Researcher Says Science, Not Belief, Will Prove Existence of Skin Disorder Morgellons BY JAIME ADAME AUGUST 22, 2012

Oklahoma State University Associate Professor Randy Wymore chooses his words carefully when describing the latest research into Morgellons, an often self-diagnosed malady involving claims of strange and inexplicable skin sensations.

Sufferers feel something like bugs or parasites constantly crawling on or beneath the body’s surface. They also frequently spot oddly-colored fibers poking through their skin. The greater scientific community dismisses these claims as delusions. Not so Wymore, a trim man who wears a hoop earring. But the biomedical researcher still maintains scientific skepticism when describing research done by others. In June, the nonprofit Charles E. Holman Foundation — a major donor to Wymore’s research — praised a study by researchers claiming a possible link between Morgellons fibers and material in cows with a disease called bovine digital dermatitis. “The new study confirms that Morgellons disease is not a delusional illness, as some in the medical community maintain …” the foundation said in a statement. The findings were similar to a 2011 study by the same researchers. Wymore, however, described the research with decidedly less enthusiasm. “Those two papers about the cow disease, I mean we wouldn’t have published them in that form. It would have to have been way further along,” said Wymore, who heads research at OSU into Morgellons. He’s quick to add he’s attempting to check out some possible links to the bovine disease himself, while also making clear how his work differs. “There are plenty of doctors who have been able to look at those papers and say, ‘Well, what about this, this.’ They can go down the list of things,” Wymore said. “Our paper just won’t be published until those sorts of concerns have already been addressed.”In the vast holdings of research database PubMed, Wymore’s name links to 12 scholarly articles — none of which deal with Morgellons. His early career involved studying cellular biology, with his work published in reputable academic journals like Circulation Research. The peer-reviewed journal ranks fourth out of 117 cardiac and cardiovascular system journals, according to its publisher, in terms of “impact factor,” a way to gauge the number of times articles in the journal are cited by other researchers. This was Wymore’s professional life before he began studying Morgellons “as a curiosity” several months after arriving at Oklahoma State University’s campus on the west side of town in 2004. He had left a similar post at the University of Tulsa. “Once I sort of came to the conclusion that, wow, there’s something interesting going on here, I knew people were suffering, and I couldn’t just say; Wow, you people have a really weird disease, sorry you’re suffering and nobody believes you, good luck …” said Wymore, crediting his personal philosophy as a Unitarian concerned with community as reinforcing his commitment to studying Morgellons.

Early on, he spoke with people who said they had the disease, later also discussing Morgellons publicly on CNN and the ABC News program Nightline. Wymore, the lone voice with backing from a research university to say Morgellons exists, said he concluded Morgellons is real because “… it was just the evidence slowly building, looking at samples.”About 30 patients complaining of Morgellons were seen over a period of roughly four years by OSU physicians, Wymore said. Most had Morgellons, according to Wymore. No single a-ha moment sealed his conviction, though Wymore said a colleague’s study of material exhumed from beneath the unbroken skin of a patient meant that Morgellons can’t be explained by clothing fibers working their way into an open wound. Many people adamantly complain online about their Morgellons symptoms, often plaintively and with deep concern for their health. Along with the sensations and fibers, people with Morgellons describe unexplained lesions and fatigue, as well as a mental toll that – whatever its origin – seems to be debilitating. Roughly 10,000 people have registered with OSU as at least potential Morgellons sufferers. However, Wymore no longer answers his phone in an effort to avoid lengthy and ultimately fruitless conversations with Morgellons sufferers. But he said he gets calls and responds every week to doctors who take Morgellons seriously. “They do think there is a psychiatric component to it. But what they’re willing to say is, the disease is causing the psychiatric component, rather than the disease is purely psychiatric.” “That’s a big distinction there.” Wymore said. Past attempts at scientific collaboration have fizzled, which Wymore blames not on skepticism but the pressures on modern scientists to remain competitive with their peers. He continues on despite a January study from the well-respected Centers for Disease Control in which researchers failed to find anything like Morgellons in a sample of people who claimed Morgellons-like symptoms. “We were not able to conclude based on this study whether this unexplained dermopathy represents a new condition, as has been proposed by those who use the term Morgellons, or wider recognition of an existing condition such as delusional infestation, with which it shares a number of clinical and epidemiologic features” researchers wrote, advising psychiatric treatment for people claiming Morgellons. Wymore, part of a group that examined the experiment’s data prior to publication, said the research had fewer than 50 weaknesses, including a small sample size of people who participated in every step of the study. “No one was observed to have had fibers emerging from the skin, and so my feeling is that,

just by default, they did not have a Morgellons population.” Wymore said. Of course, if such fibers don’t exist in the way Wymore says he’s observed them, the finding would make perfect sense. CDC researchers stated that fibers from biopsy specimens were “compatible with cotton fibers.” Funding hasn’t noticeable dropped off since the CDC report, according to Wymore, and it includes enough money for a lab technician. Notably, if tax-deductible donations to OSU’s Morgellons research foundation reach $50,000, it’s eligible for a $100,000 grant from an endowment fund set up by T. Boone Pickens upon Pickens’ death, Wymore said. So Wymore stays in the lab, Morgellons his full-time research topic, though he has other university duties. He conducts broad sweeps of samples to search for a connection between Morgellons and a particular fungi or bacteria. “Is there anything different we see about a Morgellons patient from the control, unaffected population as far as bacteria on the skin?” Wymore said, describing one question he’s trying to answer. He’s also working on a case study of a Morgellons patient, which could be complete within the next six months. “We’re going to go for the highest-profile journal we can.” Wymore said. Wymore said he sees colleagues doing interesting, less controversial research and sometimes longs to participate. But his immediate future lies with Morgellons: “My goal has pretty much always been that I will keep doing this Morgellons research until other labs better suited to it completely just get involved and quickly make progress and I’m not necessary, that would be one condition”. “Or we, or someone else, figures out the cause of this, so I guess, in either case, I’ll keep doing this until I’m not necessary.”

Flag_of_Islamic_State_of_Iraq.svg_Just one year after the Obama administration backed off on plans to bomb Syria in the face of popular opposition in the United States and the UK, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has conveniently emerged as the new pretext for launching an open imperialist assault in the Middle East.

US President Barack Obama is set to announce Wednesday, in a nationally-televised address, an unending war supposedly directed at ISIS in both Iraq and Syria. The administration has already launched airstrikes in Iraq, accompanied by the reintroduction of troops into the country. This is to be massively expanded.

Last year, the casus belli for war against Syria was the alleged chemical weapons attack on Ghouta. Claims by the imperialist powers that responsibility for these attacks lay with the Assad government were later exposed to be a…

[Below please find an older Morgellons article I think worth saving]

(NewsTarget) Morgellons is a terrifying disease reaching pandemic status. Yet because the symptoms of the disease are so bizarre, people who have it tend to withdraw and become isolated from society. With mysterious fibers and parasites coming through lesions in their skin, Morgellons sufferers often live in fear. As a result there is no pressure on the medical establishment to become educated about the disease, and most practitioners continue to view it as isolated instances of delusional parasitosis. Because Morgellons affects cognitive functioning and the ability to communicate, its victims are often unable to advocate for themselves, and few are knowledgeable or willing to advocate for them. Trisha Springstead, a former surgical charge nurse and clinical educator who now works as an advocate for patient’s rights, has stepped in to fill some of this gap. Both knowledgeable and experienced with Morgellons, Trisha agreed to be interviewed to provide the kind of insight into the disease that can only come from direct experience.

Barbara: Trisha, thank you for doing this interview. It’s time for information about this disease to become widely available. Hopefully this is a start. Is incidence of Morgellons confined to the U.S.?

Trisha: Morgellons is everywhere. It’s in Australia, England, Germany. The only country where people have not reported cases of Moregllons is Iceland. Dr. Neculai Dulceanu, Head of the Department of Parasitology in Romania just scraped these from the skin of a 75 year old woman there [shows slides of fibers and parasites]. He found Rotifers and Collembola in her skin using a needle aspiration biopsy. As you can see, this shows how the fibers and parasites are intermixed. When you look deep enough into the skin, this is what you find.

No one truly knows how many people have this disease, as many of the persons I have spoken with have not reported to any database. Most people with Morgellons seem to think they are the only ones who have it, so awareness is paramount. It is so important for me to let new patients know they are not alone, and that there are thousands and thousands of people with this disease.

What I have seen is that so very many people are isolating themselves. With increased awareness and validation, I am beginning to get phone calls from isolated people who have only had this disease for a short time, like five months. These people get referred to me by word of mouth and my name is all over the internet. When people with the disease peruse the internet they find my name and email me or call me. This is the best time to get patients, because at this point they just have the crawling and biting sensations. The disease is not yet full blown. Last week I had 30 calls. I have a phone number that is in my lab, and young people in their twenties and thirties are calling. This is because they are internet savvy.

I’ve set up an internet reporting site where people can report that they suspect they have Morgellons. I send those reports to my Congresswoman Ginny Brown Waite. Congresswoman Waite sent a letter to the head of the CDC in May of 2007. Now there is a new head at the CDC and we are back and square one tying to get them to understand what is going on.

Barbara: Tell me some numbers so we can get a feel for the scope of the disease as it is now.

Trisha: The Morgellons Research Foundation has over 13,561 reported families. Not persons, but families. Oklahoma State University has over 20,000 families registered. About 600 people have reported their disease to me, and some have reported to the CDC. My source at CDC told me that this is the most reported disease entity since the reports of HIV/AIDS. And yet so many people have not reported out of fear. The CDC wants to keep it quiet because they are afraid of mass hysteria and mass pandemonium.

There is a huge concern among many sufferers that they are going to be rounded up and put in a camp like lepers, so they don’t report.

My husband is an orthopedic surgeon. He has seen six Morgellons partients come into his office, in a very small town, Brookville. These people just happened to come to him for their joint problems, and I have taught him what to look for to diagnose Morgellons. Barbara, if he has seen six right here, it means there is a huge epidemic. And since it is world wide, it is a pandemic.

The sufferers are frenzied, and scared. I can tell you with utmost certainty, at this point in the syndrome there is not a state large enough to hold all these sufferers. Look at the numbers from Oklahoma State University. The people with this disease are so secretive and opaque that this 20,000 is just the tip of the iceberg in my estimation.

I have a teleconference call every Tuesday evening with nurses from Florida to Alaska who are working with Morgellons sufferers. Last evening we went from 9 pm to 12:30 in the morning. I spoke to them regarding advocacy and how to help raise awareness. If you are interested I will see if they wouldn’t mind getting you in on the next phone call. It is the nurses that are the ones who are giving out information and trying to help others and teach the doctors about this emerging pandemic.

Barbara: I’m almost afraid to ask this, but is the disease contagious?

Trisha: The jury is out on that as far as I am concerned. Many of the nurses caring for these people in hiding do not have the disease. I believe some can be contagious but I truly believe that would be the exception and not the rule. Do I believe that some were exposed to something else at the same time they contracted this…absolutely. I interviewed the captain of a boat on Monday and I spent five hours in their home. They were the most kind and decent people. The husband has the disease, but the wife and children do not. I hugged them all and did a very in depth assessment. Dr. Randy Wymore does not have the disease, and all the doctors I work with except two of them do not have the disease. Hundreds of people I have spoken with have one or two family members that have the disease, and the rest do not.

Barbara: What happens to people who are so reluctant to come forth?

Trisha: Since doctors are so unresponsive to these people, they have gone to the internet. There are boards all over where people talk about this disease. There are many videos on YouTube. They are giving each other advice and there are no medical professionals there to tell them whoa…hold on…please don’t bathe in bleach, ammonia or toxic chemicals. Hold up on the dangerous advice. People who listen to this type of advice are going to have to make a decision in a few years about what type of lung cancer treatment they want. Or they will be looking for a liver transplant, because they have poisoned themselves. People with Morgellons become very desperate and understandably so, but treating themselves with chemicals they don’t understand is so dangerous. Some take de-wormers and Ivermectin or Albendazole for the weight of a horse because they don’t know how to calculate kilograms of body weight, and they get the stuff from a vet or a feed store.

Barbara: What is the knowledge about how Morgellons is transmitted?

Trisha: No one knows for certain how it is being transmitted. GMOs certainly have not been ruled out. Actually, nothing has been ruled out. I keep going back to water, soil, mold and pesticides. Water, soil, mold and pesticides, but I haven’t as yet been able to get beyond that to a true understanding. I personally believe that it is man’s misuse of the earth with Frankenscience, GMOs, and thinking they can rearrange natural ecosystems of the earth that has created this mess. I believe the disease is also vector borne in many cases. Some of the people I have spoken with distinctly remember a bite, then a red, raised area on the skin. Then it became a rash, ulcers and full blown lesions all over their bodies. Then the bugs. The bugs are the progression of Morgellons. No doubt about it. The sicker the patients become, the more the parasites build up in the body, the deeper the brain fog, and then they begin purging out bugs.

Vitaly Citovsky at Stonybrook in New York studied the fibers of 10 patients and said they had Agrobacterium Tumafaciens in their bodies (the bacterium that causes crown gall disease in plants), but what amazed him the most was that he found a biofilm on the skins of these people. It is almost like a pseudo skin. We have to penetrate that biofilm and draw this stuff out of the body or these people will never get better. If you don’t, it will stay in the skin and get worse.

Dr. Kalani said the fibers from Morgellons patients were fungal. Because the body becomes like soil, fungus is attracted. The fibers are coated with the Agobacterium, which is a pathogenic fungus also known as Agent Green. Whether it is getting in the lungs, being ingested, or is vector borne or transmitted sweat to sweat is the big question.

I took slides to my friend who is an entomologist and we found fungal hyphae, alternarium, and pathogenic funguses on the slides. These are not things that grow in humans. They are organisms that grow in plants. So the human bodies of these sufferers are becoming like soil and that does that attract? Fungus, mold and parasites.

The bodies of people with Morgellons become very acidic and so we are working with pH buffers. Johns Hopkins and even Harvard have proven that many chronic diseases, especially cancer, cannot survive in a perfectly alkaline body. So, just as we raise soil alkalinity to make it more hospitable to plant life, we must alkalinize the body to fight these pathogens. If you look at my website, there is an alkaline chart and an 80% alkaline, 20% acidic diet is on there. But if you can’t do it with diet, you can buffer your pH safely. There are websites that have great pH buffers and teach sufferers how to check their urine twice a day. If they are too acidic, they can take two buffers and not the whole bottle, and check their urine again in the evening.

We have so many people who worked at the Aberdeen Proving grounds (site of munitions testing in Maryland) that now have Morgellons. They were truckers for a multimillion dollar company called Horvath. I called the owner of Horvath and told her, “Do you not understand that you have truckers who are very sick because they were exposed to soil contaminants at Aberdeen?” This woman, Sheila Horvath, said, “[S]peak to my lawyer”. No one wants to go up against this company in Maryland because they have power and money. The people with the disease and I want to know what was in that soil.

There are Morgellons sufferers in the Poconos and I speak with them when I can. They are having a hard time getting lost wages and disability, and have been called delusional. Barbara, they are the salt of the earth, just good, kind people. They are not delusional. I am beginning to think the doctors who label them only say “delusional” because they don’t want to look at this.

Then, as you know, there are doctors with this disease. Dr. James Matthews in Maryland almost lost his license because he was trying to help people. I saw where you commented on Dr. Beverly Drottar in your earlier article. They are the tip of the iceberg. How many biologists have this disease? I know that nurses are the number one reported sufferers, and that teachers are number two. Is it because they are reporting their disease and not hiding? That is a question I have been asking in this political quagmire, but I have no answers.

I just spoke with a woman in Tampa whose husband has had Morgellons for three years. She has a drawer full of anti-psychotic prescriptions. Their home in Grand Cayman was flooded. When they went back to it two months after the storm, he contracted Morgellons. She told me you could smell the mold from the street. Now he is a full blown case because they searched for three years to get help before they finally found Dr. Susan Kolb in Atlanta. Now he has lesions all over his legs, moving into his abdomen with bugs coming out of his body. I got him in to see Dr. Cheryl Reed in Tampa. I just spoke to her and she said he is a mess. She is getting labs to determine his liver enzymes, and is doing other studies. The jury is still out on him.

Fusarium Osysporum is a pathogenic fungus that we have seen in skin scrapings from patients. This is being sprayed on crops in the war on drugs. I have guys coming back from Afganistan with the disease. What is the biggest crop there? Opium.
