Source of Mystery Morgellons Disease Found

By James Donahue

The name Morgellons Disease was first used in 1674 by English physician Sir Thomas Browne to describe black hairs emerging from childhood skin lesions. That was then. Today the name is used for something for more insidious and totally unrelated.

The symptoms now include multi-colored fibers growing out from under the skin, persistent skin rashes, open sores, and crawling, biting and stinging sensations. The disease, which some medical experts relate to parasitosis, has been found all over the United States and various countries around the world.

Clusters of Morgellons Disease cases have been found in warmer places like California, Texas and Florida.

Research by Dr. Hildegarde Staninger, industrial toxicologist and doctor of integrative medicine has linked the fibers found in victims to high density polyethylene, a fiber material used mostly in the manufacture of fiber optics.

In other words, the disease appears to be caused by the consumption of toxic industrial waste consisting of silicone and silica materials that is in some way getting into the soil and then into our food supply.

In her report in the Journal of Pathology, Dr. Staninger said specimens taken from one woman suffering from Morgellons Disease revealed “bone, synovium and joint tissue having extensive degenerative fragmentation, roughening and bony formation and underlying extensive degeneration of the bone.

Chronic inflammation with fibrosis, calcification of the bone and surrounding soft tissue of the joint shows presence of crystalloid fragments consistent with silicone and silica,” her report stated.

For a while the study of the fibers growing from the skin of victims was a strange mystery within the mystery. When tested in the laboratory it was found that the fibers burned at 1,700 degrees Fahrenheit and would not melt.

A private study to determine the chemical and biological composition of the fibers revealed that the outer casing is made of high density polyethylene fiber. Once absorbed by the body, it appears that the stuff gets in the bone and the fibers grow from the bone.
