GMO and Morgellons Disease

I am currently reading William Engdahl’s Seeds of Destruction, which documents the takeover of our global food chain by giant transnational agri-business concerns intent on enslaving the population through GMO technology. I am having difficulty reading this book because after a few pages, I become enraged at the colossal greed and corruption that exists in our corporate government, which has no problem murdering whole populations and eco-systems, and reducing the survivors to a life of abject misery and poverty. I find that after reading just a few pages, I have to put the book down, cool off, then pick it up again and read a few more pages before going through the cycle again. Anyway, as I was going through this cycle of reading, fuming, cooling off, then reading again, a thought occurred to me. What if the advent of Morgellons Disease has something to do with the ingestion of GMO foods? The timing seems to be rather coincidental, so I did some web research, and here is what I found. 

Morgellons Disease – What is it?

Very little can be found regarding this disease. Originally, sufferers were told that their problem was imaginary. This was of little comfort to the people who were suffering.

Morgellons Disease sufferers report strange, fiber-like material sticking out of sores or wounds that erupt on the skin. This is accompanied by painful, intense itching, that has been described as “an ever present sensation as if something is crawling under the skin” 


On May 18, 2006, KGW, a local news channel reporting out of the Oregon area did this story: 

Strange sickness: Mystery disease horror story (excerpt) 

[Dr. Drottar] The disabled family practice doctor felt like bugs were crawling under her skin. “If I fully tell people what has gone on with me medically, they think they’re in the twilight zone,” said Drottar. She woke up with the feeling that fluid was flowing just below her skin. Often black or blue hair like fibers protruded from her skin, she said. “I thought I had been exposed to asbestos. I thought I was having asbestos fibers come out of my skin. I was pulling long, thin, small hair-like fibers that were extremely sharp that could literally pierce through my finger nails,” Drottar said.  

In addition to the feeling of bugs and the fibers, Drottar also suffered from severe depression, chronic fatigue and a weakened immune system. As a result, she had to give up her family practice, Drottar said. 

Here are some pictures of Morgellons lesions:

Morgellons and GMO – the Link

There is relatively little information regarding research correlating Morgellons with GMO foods. This is suspicious right off the bat, because it would seem that there would be a natural curiosity regarding a link between Genetically Modified Organisms that people ingest regularly and inorganic fibers that protrude from a person’s skin. This would be right up a geneticist’s alley, and quite worthy of intensive research. So, why aren’t there a ton of published studies? Why did I have a tough time finding anything related to this? Could it be that companies such as Monsanto have enough clout to effectively squash these stories? If they have enough clout to ruin countries by deceiving impoverished farmers into purchasing patented GMO seeds, then end up forcing these poor people to purchase these seeds year after year instead of harvesting their own, then I am sure they have enough clout to ask our more than willing corporate government to manipulate the press…again.  

According to Mike Stagman, PhD, “Genetic Engineering is a nightmare technology that has already caused MANY disease epidemics — documented but unpublicized” 


Well Monsanto, you let at least one study slip through. With the help of a couple of search engines, I found an article by Whitley Strieber published on October 12, 2007, titled “Skin Disease May Be Linked to GM Food,” which concludes that the fibers taken from a Morgellons sufferer contain the same substance that is “used commercially to produce genetically-modified plants.” Here is the article: 

Skin Disease May Be Linked to GM Food

12-Oct-2007 Many people—and most physicians—have written off Morgellons disease as either a hoax or hypochondria. But now there is evidence that this mysterious disease may be REAL and related to GENETICALLY MODIFIED food!

The skin of Morgellons victims oozes mysterious strands that have been identified as cellulose (which cannot be manufactured by the human body), and people have the sensation of things crawling beneath their skin. The first known case of Morgellons occurred in 2001, when Mary Leitao created a web site describing the disease, which had infected her young son. She named it Morgellons after a 17th century medical study in France that described the same symptoms.

In the Sept. 15-21 issue of New Scientist magazine, Daniel Elkan describes a patient he calls “Steve Jackson,” who “for years” has “been finding tiny blue, red and black fibers growing in intensely itchy lesions on his skin.” He quotes Jackson as saying, “The fibers are like pliable plastic and can be several millimeters long. Under the skin, some are folded in a zigzag pattern. These can be as fine as spider silk, yet strong enough to distend the skin when you pull them, as if you were pulling on a hair.”

Doctors say that this type of disease could only be caused by a parasite, but anti-parasitic medications do not help. Psychologists insist that this is a new version of the well-known syndrome known as “delusional parasitosis.” While this is a “real” disease, it is not a physically-caused one.

But now there is physical evidence that Morgellons is NOT just psychological. When pharmacologist Randy Wymore offered to study some of these fibers if people sent them to him, he discovered that “fibers from different people looked remarkably similar to each other and yet seem to match no common environmental fibers.”

When they took them to a police forensic team, they said they were not from clothing, carpets or bedding. They have no idea what they are.

Researcher Ahmed Kilani says he was able to break down two fiber samples and extract their DNA. He found that they belonged to a fungus.

An even more provocative finding is that biochemist Vitaly Citovsky discovered that the fibers contain a substance called “Agrobacterium,” which, according to New Scientist, is “used commercially to produce genetically-modified plants.” Could GM plants be “causing a new human disease?”

GMO – Not on My Watch!

I don’t know about you, but I am done with processed foods from the grocery store. We are being hit in our most vulnerable spot – our bellies. Most people my age have been brought up with an innate trust that what they purchase from the stores is safe to eat. This is no longer true since most processed foods contain genetically engineered ingredients. What you purchase from the corner store might just change your DNA and create such frightening symptoms that the general public simply does not believe it. What is worse is that when you go to the doctor to get help, he/she tells you what you are experiencing is all in your head. This is rubbish! It is up to people who care to make the correlations between what we eat and what happens to our bodies. Remember the old saying – “you are what you eat?” Well, I believe it is true.

  1. What an absolutely creepy, outrageous and horrifying disease- and to think that it’s man-made by a greedy, psychopathic corporation is even worse. We’ve got to come together, put our collective feet down, and say “NO” to business wanting to mutilate our food!

  2. Exactly, Harmony. These people are beyond belief. Have you read William Engdahl’s Seeds of Destruction? I highly recommend it. He outlines the whole process that the U.S. government and these corporations used to foist GMO on an unsuspecting public.

  3. I am very glad to see the general public finally begining to realize what is going on. Thank you Barbara! We need to create the awareness because no matter what the cause is, one thing is for sure, this is definitely NOT a natural condition. NOTHING in nature produces what this does.

    And why would people be calling this condition something it could not possibly be? Morgellons, a disease discovered in the 16th century? Not a chance in heaven as the technology simply did not exist. More spin perhaps?

    “Series revealing video footage about a man made environmentally resistant and contagious human pathogen(start series: April 2006). The micro organism is a synthetic model organism and a product of proteomic and genomic research.”

    I only wish that diet was the answer to protecting ones self from this but am afraid this is not the case.

  4. Hi Sabrina,

    Here is what I found out about the name:

    “The name Morgellons was coined in 2002 by Mary Leitao of McMurray, Pennsylvania, while investigating her son’s unexplained rash[1]. She named the condition Morgellons (with a hard g), after a condition from the monograph A Letter to a Friend by Sir Thomas Browne, in 1690, wherein he describes several medical conditions in his experience, including that endemial distemper of children in Languedoc, called the morgellons, wherein they critically break out with harsh hairs on their backs[2]. A 1935 paper by British doctor C.E. Kellett identifies the name morgellons with the Provençal term masclous, or “little flies”[3]. It is doubtful that the 17th-century disease has anything to do with modern day Morgellons; however, the similarities were such that Leitao elected to use the name as a consistent label when addressing politicians, physicians and health departments.”


  5. Morgellons AKA Fiber Disease is caused by Agrobacterium TI in GMO’s. If you would stop ingesting GMO’s in food, drinks, tobacco, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, & yes – even water, you no longer get the fiber things & you no longer itch.

    This was all done in the name of corporate greed by Monsanto et al & leads straight to the White House including the Clinton’s and Bush. But regardless of this, the fact remains that you do NOT have the right to know what is in your food because if you knew, you would not buy it & Monsanto et al would not benefit.

  6. All the doctors have to do… is bring these people in for obsevation with a camera in a room…. and either the fibers will appear or will not. To just dismiss everyone as crazy just boggles my mind. IF IT WAS NOT REAL IT WOULD BE SOOOO EASY TO PROVE IT!! Something incideous is going on. I feel so sorry for these people out there. I can not imagine being dismissed as a crazy person.

  7. To Carol

    Does removal from the source stop the process?

    It is likely that the process is part of the persons make up and will continue after removal from the contamination.

    My problem comes from the fact that most food stuff is digested.

    Could this illness come from people injected with GMO material?

    One thing is for sure, government and industry will deny this kicking and screaming from here to the hell these people live and die in

  8. I have been working with Morgellons victims for over 3 years and I can assure you that this is real. These victims are genuine people, just like you and me who have suffered horribly, some for many years.

    Many Morgellons victims have told me that the only thing that really works for them is nutrasilver. They say that in 3 weeks their lesions are gone and in 2 weeks their cognitive issues like brain-fog, chronic fatigue, depression and irritability are gone too. You may wish to give it a try if you have Morgellons;

  9. Well, You want proof of GMO ? Take your coffee grounds or even a tea bag and pour some grounds on a paper towel or newspaper. Then rake back and forth or do a light chopping action and you will see the grounds jump. This inclused instant coffee as well. After wards grab a slide and a 40x microscope (Kids) initial inspection looks like nothing till you add 1 drop of bleach. You will see a very fast transformation of the ground into what appears to be a mite like corganism. Often with what looks to be a mettalic implant of perhaps a brand. The mite is able defensively to exude a silicone type substance over itself protecting itself and its babies . It seems indestructable against all chemicals . I decided to check out a cherrio, a clove, bread crumbs, vanilla wafer, even frozen bread dough. Our food is loaded with these evil things, They are alive. Even checked out black pepper in a chicken gravy from a fast food place. This is outrageous.
