Morgellons Disease and GMOs

Morgellons is a condition in which unusual thread-like fibers appear under the skin. The patient may feel like something is crawling, biting, or stinging all over.[1] The term “Morgellons” first appeared in a 17th century French medical text where it was used to describe the painful eruptions of coarse hairs on the backs of children. Its contemporary use was coined by a woman named Mary Leitao, whose son contracted a strange lesion on his lip. He would point at the lesion and say “bugs.” Leitao took him to numerous doctors who dismissed the condition with various explanations ranging from eczema to unknown dermatitis. Leitao took to the internet with her findings, and shortly afterward, thousands of people began reporting the same symptoms. To date, 14 thousand families have registered as being infected with Morgellons.[2]

The GMO Explanation of Morgellons


Evidence points to genetically-modified organisms (GMOs) as the cause, but the CDC refuses to even acknowledge Morgellons as a disease. Scientists who have examined the fibers of Morgellons sufferers found them to be composed of a trans-genetic substance that is fluorescent and contains human, bovine (cow) and bacteria proteins. They also found fibers made of polythene that stick through the skin and causes victims to constantly itch their wounds, and an almost indestructible tube containing a biofilm substance that prevents the skin lesions from healing.[3]

A handful of university labs have created textiles with genetically manipulated e-coli bacteria, chemicals, nematodes and proteins infused into their structure. The technology was then sold to textile manufacturers for broad-scale applications. The fibers found in the fabric have striking similarities to the fibers found in the skin of individuals suffering from Morgellons. Both are composed of cellulose, have 'helical coil type tendencies' (a genetically manipulated trait), autofluorescence (also seen in genetic manipulation) and contain DNA of genetically modified bacteria.[4]

In a study conducted by Vitaly Citovsky, professor of molecular and cell biology at Stony Brook University in New York, skin biopsy samples from Morgellons patients were tested for genes encoded by the Agrobacterium chromosome. (Agrobacterium is a soil bacterium widely used in creating genetically modified plants due to its ability to invade a plant and to insert a large amount of its own DNA sequence into growing cells in the plant.) They found that “all Morgellons patients screened to date have tested positive for the presence of Agrobacterium, whereas this microorganism has not been detected in any of the samples derived from the control, healthy individuals.” Their preliminary conclusion is that "Agrobacterium may be involved in the etiology and/or progression" of Morgellons Disease.[5]


The association of Morgellons Disease with dirt and soil where Agrobacterium lives, the widespread use of Agrobacterium in genetic engineering of plants, and the ability of Agrobacterium to infect human cells, all point towards a role of genetic engineering in the etiology of Morgellons disease.

In early 2008 the Center for Disease Control (CDC) announced that it was going to conduct an in-depth study of the disease through their association with the Kaiser Permanente Hospital in California. Kaiser was chosen, according to the CDC, because of the large population of California residents that claimed to suffer from the symptoms.

After two years of research, the CDC states that they have learned virtually nothing about the cause or nature of the disease. CDC experts note that the signs and symptoms of Morgellons disease are very similar to those of a mental illness involving false beliefs about infestation by parasites (delusional parasitosis). Furthermore, in their FAQ section, they politely refuse to accept any specimens, referrals or information from Morgellons researchers or victims.[6]

The total budget for the CDC study was just $300,000. It was also revealed that prior to the study, Kaiser had already been treating Morgellons patients according to the diagnosis of delusional parasitosis. Moreover, in April 2003 Bayer and GlaxoSmithKline, two of the largest producers of GMOs, paid out 258 million in fines for defrauding the US Medical system by providing discounted prices to Kaiser Permanente for their drugs and engaging in “private labeling” for the HMO, affixing different labels to their drug products.[7]

The link between Morgellons and GMOs, the refusal of the CDC to acknowledge the existence of Morgellons, and the close ties between Kaiser Permanente and the main purveyors of GMOs suggests that Morgellons is a product, whether intentional or accidental, of genetic engineering and that the medical establishment is attempting to hide this fact from the American public.
