The Exploitation of Morgellons

In the months leading up to this article, there has been a growing sense of desperation from the communities espousing many disproven theories such as “Morgellons is caused by nanotechnology” and “Morgellons is part of a transhumanist agenda”. The reason for this urgency is quite simple, the facts are in and the jig is up.

Following the publication of several peer-reviewed studies that confirm Morgellons is associated with chronic bacterial infections, people who purport various theories suddenly found themselves on the wrong side of a baseless argument to substantiate their professionally ridiculous claims. Morgellons patients have long been on the losing end of a tragic deal, but with the bringing to light several key facts – the exploitation of Morgellons Disease is quickly coming to a head.

The Exploitation of Morgellons Disease

There are several ways Morgellons is exploited. Following, we analyze many of these methods to raise awareness and to further solidify the legitimization of real Morgellons Disease. These various examples prove no help for ailing patients, and in many cases cause healthcare professionals to discount Morgellons disease entirely.

Support for Disproven Theories

The most obvious way Morgellons disease is exploited is as supportive evidence for disproven theories.

  • gmo morgellons
    GMO. Early studies demonstrated the presence of agrobacterium in Morgellons patients but did not establish it as the causative agent. Industrial genetic modification utilizes agrobacterium to accomplish gene transfer. In patients with a compromised immune system, this bacteria can establish opportunistic infections.

We reached out to Dr. Vitaly Citovsky SUNY Distinguished Professor Department of Biochemistry and Cell Biology at State University of New York for clarification and here is what he had to say:

GMO plants contain NO Agrobacterium-specific sequences (except for several nucleotides that remain from the T-DNA borders after integration) and thus cannot serve a sources of any bacterial factors or effects.
The bottom line is that we found no DNA of Agrobacterium that is involved in genetic transformation in the patient samples. Also vast experience of thousands of people working with Agrobacterium every day shows no pathogenic effects. Finally based on the well known Agrobacterium biology there is no biological pathway that it has that can be even envisioned to produce morgellons symptoms.

Dr. Vitaly Citovsky
  • Weather Modification. While this phenomenon has been occurring for over 100 years now, it has only recently been gaining attention in the mainstream and generally not well accepted. This is in part due to the conversation regarding Solar Geoengineering. Both weather modification and SRM employ techniques to add aerosols to our atmosphere. There is no demonstrable evidence that these activities are the causative agent in Morgellons disease. Some people have speculated that weather modification includes the use of fibers being dropped out of high flying tankers and that these fibers are breathed in and then expelled. This theory was crushed however when evidence was demonstrated that Morgellons fibers grow from inside the body and are produced by the bodies’ own proteins.
  • Electromagnetic Frequencies. Another theory is that radiation from cell phones and wifi devices are causing burns and that the slow healing and irregular repair of the sores indicated radiation illness. This theory, however, fails when it is apparent that some Morgellons patients recover after aggressive antibiotic use, yet the same patients remain exposed to EMFs. This inconsistency alone verifies that EMFs are not the causative factor in Morgellons disease at all.


The next way Morgellons is exploited is for sensational purposes. Morgellons is a visual disease with fluorescent fibers, shocking, oozing, open and bleeding lesions.  Armed with nothing more than artistically licensed visual interpretation, many groups and individuals use images of Morgellons disease to generate an audience that is intrigued.

  • Nanotechnology. In, perhaps a bid to make both phenomena sound ludicrous, some individuals started suggesting Morgellons artifacts are a result of nanotechnology being delivered by aerosols from jetliners that self replicates once inhaled. The problem with this concept is that no evidence of nanotechnology has even been demonstrated in any Morgellons patients. This theory is a result of observational interpretation of Morgellons images, none of which have ever been studied in person to determine their chemical and structural composition. Similar artifacts have been studied and determined to be comprised of human proteins. Often people who espouse this theory have seen videos of actual developing nanotechnologies – but attempt to correlate what they’ve seen to Morgellons disease without the use of the proper scientific method to rule out their theories.
  • Black Magic NWO. There is a movement that reports Morgellons fibers are GMO spider silk perpetrated on the masses by the New World Order with the aid of black magic. This theory, although completely sensational, is captivating to some. This theory claims that Morgellons is a symptom of “rejecting the nanobots” that are upgrading human DNA to make all life interconnected with biological technology. What these people have done is taken the 1950s idea of a future with flying cars, only 30 years out potentially, and applied the same miscalculation to our future. Many writers have speculated about a future where every person is interconnected by way of the internet, no evidence, however, has surfaced that these plans are being carried out or are affecting anybody’s life. This is fiction being passed down as fact.
  • Morgellons is a Bioweapon. This theory, like the others, relies on the audience to forgo chemical and light microscopic evidence in light of sensational visual interpretation. Many of the images on here are purported to be something which very clearly they are not. The source of the artifacts in this video is not revealed and the narrator weaves a fantastic tale void of any substantiating facts.
  • Morgellons is a Silent Superbug. You know what they say about people who disappear? Sometimes they were never really here. Such is the case with Daniel Bell Van Eeden and his Silent Superbug Morgellons video. Van Eeden’s production is amusing to those who are aware of what biofilm really is, captivating to those looking for a conspiracy in everything. As the author of the above Scribd document demonstrates, it’s hard to nail Van Eeden down despite having a theory to back up with any credible evidence. Perhaps this excerpt says it best:

the videos almost seem like a … like a SALES PITCH for “Dr Evil ” types, who want to make “ONETRIIIIILLION” $ off of a pleading suffering public.

We reached out to Morgellons expert, Cindy Casey Holman, RN, and Director of the Charles E. Holman Morgellons Disease Foundation for a statement regarding potential butterfly effects of sensationalizing Morgellons Disease. Here is what she had to say:

The perpetuation of these theories, even long after they have been disproven, accomplishes only a worse impression for physicians who possess the potential to treat Morgellons Disease. Doctors tune out the mention of Morgellons after initially having it presented as a sensational theory. These people who exploit Morgellons for their purposes indirectly harm patients who are legitimately seeking treatment.

Cindy Casey Holman


In our estimation, very few Morgellons patients are looking for sympathy. Rather we think legitimate Morgellons patients are looking for validation, health, and support. There are those however who are literally pretending to have Morgellons disease, a microscopic condition while spending much time online soliciting attention. The rationale of these people indicates a common belief that every person on the planet has Morgellons, while most people simply don’t exhibit symptoms. They also utilize sensationalism, for example, to perpetuate the idea that those patients with sores are rejecting nanobot transhumanist upgrades. These people commonly post sensational links and photographs of unknown origin, while taking artistic license with their descriptions.


None has exploited Morgellons so much, even beyond the final entries on this list, than the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention itself. In 2012 the CDC released a scathing report entitled Clinical, Epidemiologic, Histopathologic and Molecular Features of an Unexplained Dermopathy in which they conclude nothing, yet headlines the following day read “Morgellons Patients are Delusional!

Their report in effect ‘kicks the can‘ further down the road for Lyme patients, but most importantly for the health of patients of various other diseases for ages.

In all fairness, the CDC is an agency comprised of a variety of talented and skilled professionals who often don’t have control over the direction of their research. Each election produces a new potential nominee for the Director of the CDC. Hopefully, they will be interested to take a second look at Morgellons disease as time has passed and new insight has become available. If you’d like to see the CDC take another look at Morgellons disease, first learn more about what they do and then feel free to reach out to them. Be professional and kind, remember – they are people too.

Morgellons $ales

There are opportunists making easy cash off Morgellons disease with no evidence to substantiate their claims that these products will address actual Morgellons symptoms. There aren’t many if any, Morgellons branded “health” products that regard the accepted literature. As such none of these products can be regarded with merit.

Morgellons Movie

For what reason would you suppose anyone would create sensational fiction based on the word Morgellons? Exploitation, of course. Morgellons has been proven to be a disease of chronic bacterial infection… but until the CDC comes out and says that, it’s open season on interpretation:


This article highlights just a few of the several examples of how Morgellons is exploited for personal gain. It should be of interest whether such a phenomenon would occur with any disease that is not officially recognized. Were autism and aids exploited the same way? As long as people are convinced that Morgellons patients are hurting themselves for the attention they will possess a deep bravado to expose the perceived attention seeker. In reality however, the Morgellons patient wants nothing more than for their suffering to cease.

We reached out to Veterinary Microbiologist, Marianne Middelveen for her expert opinion on the phenomenon of Morgellons disease being exploited. She was very kind and prepared a statement in regards to our inquiry:

There is a saying in medicine “when you hear hoofbeats think horses, not zebras”. This means when you are confronted with a constellation of symptoms you should first consider the most common possible causes, “the horses”, and rule them out before considering more rare causes, “the zebras”. Zebras can happen, but a horse is far more likely.

In the case of Morgellons we have a perfectly good horse. The CDC admits that there are over 300,000 new cases of Lyme disease diagnosed in the USA each year, making it more common than new breast cancer cases and new HIV cases. There are now 9 peer-reviewed papers listed on a Pubmed search that provide evidence linking Morgellons disease to Lyme disease.

Four of these report directly detecting Borrelia burgdorferi, the causative agent of Lyme disease, and closely related Borrelia species in specimens from Morgellons disease patients, by the use of sensitive molecular controlled experimentation. Other pathogens have been detected in Morgellons specimens including Helicobacter pylori, Treponema denticola, and Bartonella henselae, that may play a contributing role.

While the horse is neighing at the stable door, zebras such as fungal diseases, parasites, arthropod infestation are proposed, although there is no evidence to support them as causative agents. Not only are zebras proposed and the horse neglected, but unicorns, such as GMOs, chem trails, nanotechnology, and alien bacteria, are proposed as etiologic factors. Unicorns are ridiculous, impossible myths. Unicorns cause confusion and hinder legitimate, peer-reviewed research from being accepted by the mainstream.

  1. What a bunch of drivel. The simple fact of the matter, is that co-infections do not explain Morgellons. Research into patents, and molecular/bio-engineering does. You cannot help anyone with tripe such as you have espoused. Until you’ve educated yourself instead of buying into the perpetrators excuses, you only do yourself a dis-service, along with anyone seeking the truth into the matter. Here’s something substantial to get you started: Dr. K. Erik Drexler and the Foresight Institute and his work in molecular nanotechnology
    Dr. Alexander M. Klibanov and his work on PEIs and enzymatic catalysis in nonaqueous media, Plasmid DNA delivery,
    Enzymes as stereoselective catalysts in organic synthesis
    Carbon 60 (C60) and other carbon allotropes/Fullerenes/Buckyballs/Buckytubes
    Self-Assembling Nanopeptides
    Six letter DNA manipulation:
    MHS8 and other MHS Markers on materials found in Morgellons sufferers: MHS 8: IDENTIFYING MARKS

    Nanotubes entering human cells:

    GNA (Glycol Nucleic Acid)/Synthetic DNA and nanotech:
    “There is now strong data indicating that this disorder is associated with nanotechnology, specifically nano-machines in the form of nanofibers. The National Science Foundation (NSF) defines nanofibers as having at least one dimension of 100 nanometer (nm) or less. Fiber samples, taken from the skin of a Morgellons sufferer, when exposed to heat, did not burn until it has been heated to 1700 degrees F. As well, under examination with an electron microscope, fiber samples appear not to be organic. They have no eukaryotic cells, no cell membrane. Meaning that Morgellons is not a parasite, it is not biological, it is a machine. In March and April 2007, Jeff Rense published and broadcast some capable research based on scientific techniques including electron microscopy, energy dispersive spectroscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and Fourier transform Raman spectroscopy. The Team Leader of the research unit was Dr Hilgegarde Staninger of Integrative Health International at Lakewood, California.
    The preliminary findings were disturbing. Morgellons appears to be a communicable nanotechnology invasion of human tissue in the form of self-assembling, self-replicating nanotubes, nanowires, and nanoarrays with sensors.
    Other nano-configurations associated with Morgellons disease carry genetically-altered and spliced DNA or RNA. The nano-machines which precipitate Morgellons thrive in alkaline pH conditions and use the body’s bio-electric energy and other (unidentified) elements for power. There is evidence that certain of the tiny machines possess their own internal batteries as well. The Morgellons nano-machines are configured to receive specific tuned microwave, EMF and ELF signals and radio data.”!divAbstract

    • Why do you people think that preceding your argument with telling me I’m stupid is going to make me want to consider your position?

      None of these links you’ve posted relate at all to Morgellons fibers:
      “Histological studies on MD tissue show that MD filaments are not textile fibers. They are biofilaments of human cellular origin produced by epithelial cells and stem from deeper layers of the epidermis, the upper layers of the dermis, and the root sheath of hair follicles.6,10,11 Histological studies established that these filaments are predominantly composed of collagen and keratin,10,11 and are nucleated at the base of attachment to epithelial cells,11 thus demonstrating human cellular origin. Staining of embedded filaments with Congo red resulted in apple-green birefringence suggestive of an amyloid component, although this remains to be confirmed by more specific studies (unpublished data). Staining of embedded filaments with calcofluor-white produced negative results, demonstrating that filaments are not cellulose as found in cotton, linen, or other plant-based textile fibers, or chitin as found in fungal cells and insect exoskeletons (unpublished data).”

  2. I was almost killed by Morgellons. I think I have now developed antibodies towards most of the germs that activate the growth of the Morgellons fibers and little crystals within our skin. These fibers self-assemble within the body and replace the keratin fibers in your skin. If you don’t have that much collagen available, your body will use the elements from these fibers, because they are long-chain amino acids, ie., cloned/recombinant silk fibroins. Crystals are produced that are wrapped within those keratin fibers. It is a biological network that can be remotely accessed by electromagnetic frequencies that has genetically modified many of you. That is horrific, and sorry, but that is what I think. If one can survive it, then you will have some innate protection. Sadly, many have died from it. This is genetic warfare. Worldwide genetic, biological, chemical, economic (makes you sick or weak), weather, electronic, nuclear (strontium is in the spray), nano warfare. Sorry, but folks — if you want to remain free, you are going to have to do the research, wrap your minds around the issue, and get ANGRY.

    The more I detox the chemtrail fibers and heavy metals out of my body the less targeted I am by directed energy frequencies. I was unbelievably directed energy targeted. Getting rid of Morgellons and cleaning out my body has helped tremendously. That told me that one of the purposes of chemtrails is for genetic manipulation to put something in us that allows us to be more easily targeted by frequencies. An Air Force chaff was developed from recombinant spider silk. It states in the patent that it produces crystals “in vivo.” That means within the body. I think it was supposed to be environmentally safe, break down in the environment, and be harmless. It produces crystals only if there are certain bacteria available to make it happen. But, the Air Force funded it, and they have rights in the invention. Anything can be attached to those fibers: genes, chemicals, germs — look it up. Attach certain germs to the fibers, and they will self-assemble within the body (where there are keratins/collagens) and produce crystals. It is a network in your skin. I really do think this is the major part of the problem.
