Epidemiology (2007-2021)





Transmission and Dispersion:

The spread and propagation of this soil-borne filamentous biofilm bacteria in the environment can occur at any time, usually, via endospores, biofilm blebs or black filaments. Black therefore, because these bacteria can synthesize melanin as environmental protection like e.g. UV-radiation, heat, etc.. But germination, further growth, activity and infectiousness require the right environmental conditions (moisture, low temperatures, nitrogen, ph-level).

Morgellons Wildlife Form

Alternatively, if we assume the pesticide industry as distributors, dispersion is accomplished by industrially manufactured hollow or porous fibers (light- and pH-sensitive polymers) of plastic, lignin, cotton, or cellulose that are used to carry or to coat and protect unstable bio-insecticides against UV-light, heat, etc.

The spread of the Morgellons disease happened actually very slowly over the past 20 to 30 years, and it is not comparable with AIDS or SARS. It could be that some bio-insecticide was used locally at first, by pheromone traps or spraying actions, and then gradually spread across the country, due to increasing usage over many years.

Further dispersion could have been made by storms, hurricanes, floods, humans, animals or insects, rather than by mass spraying as many people claim, such as chemtrails. Forget it! Chemtrails are not the cause of this disease, because then, we would have much more infections worldwide, because there are many more immunocompromised people (e.g. drug users, hospital patients and residents of retirement centers, etc.).

What happens to these biofilm bacteria after they are rinsed into sewage systems is currently not clear. They may survive in water or sewage purification plants, perhaps even after chemical treatments.

There are reports annually of urban biological sewage purification plants that have a number of problems already with bacteria and nematodes collecting in filtering units. Theoretically then, it would be possible for these parasites to arrive over water pipelines back into dwellings (via shower, washing machine, drinking faucet, etc.).

It is not impossible, since gradually more locations (soil, lakes, plants) are infested with these parasites. Messy and unclean living conditions, as well as any chronic illnesses, will favor constant re-infection with these parasitic life forms.

Ways of transmission:

Based on my survey results (read more under "Inquiry Results" and "Statistic"), people were contaminated in many different ways. One lady was infected from a night in a hotel room, others from motels and contaminated linens. Another lady contracted Morgellons when she slept in the bed of her mother, who already had Morgellons.

Some contracted it from a stray dog, others from cats, hamsters, birds, bird mites, wild rabbits, cows, poultry, goats, horses, insect bites, or direct contact with soil or plant leaves, or after flooding of the house. Infection has occurred simply by sitting on the grass, or living next to Monsanto test fields for insecticides e.g. on Hawai.

There are families in which the parents show no symptoms, but one or some of the children, even babies, are symptomatic. Sometimes only the wife is infected, sometimes only the husband, and sometimes both. Sometimes all members of a bigger family are infected.

Most who left their homes for vacation had more relief and fewer symptoms during their periods of infection. The moment they returned home was the moment when all their symptoms started again (damp, moldy home).

Many couples have written me that one partner has Morgellons, but they still have sex together. Even after many years, the non-afflicted partner (masculine types) did not show any disease symptoms. The same applies to families, where one mother alone or living with one child was infected, while other children or the husband was not, or vice versa.

There are myriad variations of infection patterns among family members present in the home.


Cross-contamination among humans could be taking place even through damp hand contact. Theoretically, it can occur with any contact that is still moist from body perspiration, such as in a crowded bus, locker room, gym, swimming pool, or on shopping cart handles or public telephones.

Summer temperatures would favor contamination. One could sweat, wipe the sweat away with the hands, or onto the clothes, then these same hands might contaminate any number of possible objects, such as money from a sweaty wallet carried in the back pocket, the blood pressure cuff at your doctor's office, the brushes and combs used by your hairdresser, the countertop at the nightclub or bar, and office keyboards.

Of course, a common means of higher contamination is through shared secretions in sexual contact or IV drug use. Consider the fact that only one infected e.g. prostitute, with or without condom, who does not recognize this illness, could be visited by approximately 300-600 men in a month, and thus alone could cover a sphere of activity by approximately 4,000- 5,000 persons or more.

One can spread infection directly or through one's family members and close associates. These figures need to be increased to include family members and acquaintances, who are at risk of being infected or become a latent carrier of spores. So just by taking the example of the active homosexual or participants in prostitution, large numbers of infections will occur through close body contact. Safer sex just does not work in these scenarios!

Therefore, the larger the group and the more intimate the public contact, such as with sharing a toilet area for prolonged times on long-distance trains, recirculated air on airplanes, or public telephones, the larger the risk of exposure and an indirect infection.

If however nobody is warned either by the press or health authorities, then no one can protect himself against it. With this disease, as compared to AIDS, things are different. Completely innocent people, including children, babies and pets, can be infected at any time by touch or in the near future.

Big cities, such as NY, LA, Seattle, Paris, Rome, Milan, Berlin, Munich, Budapest, Vienna, and Athens, offer more favorable conditions than rural areas for spreading infection among the population.

Currently, there are approximately 200,000 humans officially infected with Morgellons disease worldwide. The dark numbers of infections are possibly more than 10 million. Eastern countries, aquatic and terrestrial animals are not even taken into account.

Further inquiry results revealed, that most of the Morgellons afflicted had also other bacterial coinfections. Another factor in containment of the spread is self-quarantine by contaminated persons, who take extreme precautions and isolation to avoid further transmission, thereby losing friends, spouses, partners, family, work, and their reputations and social life.

U.S. the origin?

Further inquiry results revealed that most European and Asian tourists contracted Morgellons after a holiday trip to Florida, California or NY, or after having had contact with people who had visited the U.S., or from Americans who had visited their countries. Additionally, the export of American goods plays a certain role in the spread.

Many Europeans who live in harbor cities, such as Amsterdam, Stockholm, London, Bremen and Hamburg, probably contracted Morgellons from goods arriving on U.S. ships. Harbors, airports and big cities, seem to contribute more to distribution of this disease. Therefore, also New York, New Orleans, Miami, Houston and Los Angeles are predestined to have higher rates of infection cases in U.S.

These few facts suggest that the origin of Morgellons must be in the U.S., where something is in use that is not applied in Europe. 

If the first recorded Morgellons epidemic happened in Texas, Florida and California, then we have to look in those states to find out what was used and spread from there. It could have to do with the use of bio-insecticides as natural antagonists (opponents) to fight red fire ants, ticks, mosquitos, or pests on crop plantations.

Or it could also have to do with something that escaped from a laboratory, if we assume a bioweapon. Could this be perhaps a biowarfare agent from Boca Raton, Florida? Or from the U.S. military bioweapons facility at Lackland Air Force Base in Texas? Who knows if any accident happened there to set free such dangerous organisms.

Anyway, it could surely be the prototype of a very slow working bioweapon, but I want to point more toward existing and provable facts such as bio-insecticides instead of hypothetical bioweapon assumptions, because the increased usage of them since the 1980s in the southern U.S. correlates with the first cases of Morgellons infections that occurred approximately 30 years ago in these areas.

It is known also that the U.S. military consciously sprayed South American coca and marijuana plantations with herbicides made of fungal pathogens. The most common of these, Fusarium oxysporum and Pleospora papaveracea, can destroy the plants (coca, marijuana, and opium) but also compromise the health of people with weak immune systems who have contact with such herbicides.

U.S. authorities also employed this type of herbicide against Marijuana planters. This spraying policy is similar to the AGENT ORANGE actions in Vietnam. Well ignored is that U.S. soldiers, Vietnamese citizens, and wide areas of nature became contaminated.

However, all of these resistant bacterial biofilm filaments sprayed locally as insecticides or plantkillers can also contaminate other crops, such as tomatoes, maize, tobacco, coffee and vines. Water supplies are affected too, as are honeybees gathering pollen from crops. Wind can spread those fungal spores across a wide area, contaminating other insects, plants and soil.

In addition, some genetically manipulated plants (seeds) could have effects on these sprayed bio-insecticides or on other natural occouring microorganisms. All these modified plants are linked genetically with one or more agrobacteria (e.g. Bacillus thuringiensis or Tumifaciens C58) by means of the "Transgen Technology" (injection or micro-bombardment of plants) or by spraying actions.

Contaminated cotton and textiles:

Most recent cases of infected persons in Europe or USA have been linked to direct contact with cotton or textiles products, such as cotton from Vietnam, India or China.

A couple from Germany contracted Morgellons from a brand new textile couch, and another person from UK was infected when he bought a T-shirt made in Vietnam. A Hungarian guy contracted Morgellons after he bought T-shirts during his vacation in Florida, which were contaminated and been made in the Philippines or Cambodia.

An Indian guy who worked on a cotton plantation did get black and colored fibers coming out of his sperm and urine. One infected person from Netherlands was a packaging worker in the textile industry, and another sufferer from the U.S. was infected with Morgellons on a business trip to China. That business was in textiles and cotton.  

Many textile products are impregnated purposely with certain bio-insecticides, which are also sold in spray bottles for home use. Who really wants to use such living organisms on the furniture or carpet? Consider that children and pets play on that same carpet. What about them, if they have a reduced immune system?

As well, nobody really wants to wear T-shirts that are living and moving, because they were impregnated with microorganisms. I prefer my T-shirts rather “dead" than "alive.”

These contaminated cotton harvests from the Third World (not organic cotton) could perhaps be arriving in the West in cheap products, sold on the worldwide clothing market mostly or exclusively for the middle and lower social classes. Up until now, statistics reveal that wealthy people do not get Morgellons!

Perhaps this cheaper cotton is a component of cotton sticks or rods, too (such as in cotton swabs or cotton buds), because there are also many people who noticed moving fibers on cotton sticks under the microscope!

I do not want to claim that Morgellons originates exclusively from U.S., or China, India or Vietnam, etc. It is possible, however, that these or other countries are using the same bio-insecticides as in U.S, and perhaps more virulent strains, exporting them via contaminated cotton or textiles, back to western countries, and spreading them throughout those countries.

Much investigation and many import controls are needed by western authorities; otherwise, even terrorists could send slow-working biological weapons in the form of Third World products in order to create nasty, slow-working diseases among the population.

Even if such terrorist acts were already a reality, any government that knew of them would be likely to deny such threats to hide the risk and its own incompetence from the public. Because this scenario is also played out in the U.S., which is stockpiling the same dirty germ warfare that other countries do, in “business as usual.”

How contagious is FBB aka Morgellons bacteria?

Morgellons biofilm and its created endospores are highly contagious and infectious for immunocompromised people and animals that also have certain endocrinal dysfunctions or disorders, and disregulated hormone release, perhaps due to a former trauma, illness, or longer ongoing periods of stress.

Infections are possible by nasal or oral respiration of aerosols (spores), by swallowing water and food, by blood transfusion, or by direct skin contact. Additionally, an infection can be acquired by contaminated inert objects, soil or plants, and by animals, arthropods or insects (zoonosis).

Many species of insects and arthropods, including flies, ticks, fleas, ants, bees, mosquitoes, spiders, bird mites, scabies, and collembola having contact with the biofilm or industrial transport fibers can be contagious. They can transmit first the spores or spread infection among themselves (epizootic) and later to any other host.

Some types of humans are far less likely to develop an infection and the usual symptoms, even after having contact with this biofilm, due to a good immune and balanced hormonal system, less stress, or a lesser genetic disposition for bacterial, viral or fungal infection.

Eventually some of them can be infected/infested without showing any symptoms, but become a latent carrier of inactive spores. Perhaps many years later, when their immune systems become weakened, by stress or traumatic experiences, or when they experience a change in body chemistry after menopause or andropause (lowered hormonal levels), they may present with Morgellons symptoms. 

Re-infection risk:

The length of infestation can be constantly extended without blaming the sufferer (unhygienic conditions), because the high rate of survival of spores is in itself a cause of re-infection. One cannot transform a living environment into a sterile field, no matter how many plastic wraps, cleaning solutions and rubber gloves one uses.

The biofilm is mostly stationary on the host and its underwear, and they can be distributed by fans or blowing wind into every crack and crevice of one's living space. Everything has to be wiped down carefully with alcohol and paper towels or disposable sponges to eliminate these biofilms.

Unfortunately, re-infection is still possible, even after months of being free from infestation. Even so, unhygienic environments favor the re-infection rate. Disposable clothes, extreme hygiene and discipline are required for a longer time than you might expect to eradicate contagion. 

A renewed infestation can occur from the bed, clothes or carpet, if one is habitually barefoot or in socks. Common utensils, such as the computer mouse, keyboard, remote control, keys, or tooth brush can be instruments of re-infection.

Samples taken from human living areas and examined carefully under a microscope provide evidence of daily re-infection by the parasites and clues as to their distribution and behavior in everyday environments.

- 34% of re-infections were from daily underwear.

- 22% of re-infections were from daily utensils (remote control, kitchen utensils, coffee machine, computer, etc.).

- 14% of re-infections were from the dwelling generally (carpets, couch, stairway handrail, plastic hangers, etc.).

- 13% of re-infections were from bed pillows.

- 10% of re-infections were from washed bed linens (if sleeping without clothing, re-infection rose to 30%).

- 5% of re-infections were from car interiors (seat covers, arm rests, door handles, seatbelts, etc.).

- 2% of re-infections were from washed outerwear

Most re-infection takes place via underwear. Fewer re-infections occur from jackets or bed linens, depending on whether one sleeps with or without clothing, due to abrading biofilm or fibers directly into bed linen.

Winter and summer show marked differences. In the summer, re-infection parameters are substantially higher.

Living in a cloud of microbes:

For millions of years, this planet has been covered with a biosphere or cloud of microbes (fungi, bacteria, viruses), in which we live and from which we descend. Only our remarkable immune system, which has adapted to or built up immunity against many pathogens over generations, protects us from most infections.

Now, there is much more in the air or nature than up to this era. It will be an enormous task for our immune system to adapt and keep us healthy. New sources, such as unknown molds, bacteria, viruses, nano-particles, plastic and unknown fibers, chemical toxins and pesticides seep into the soil; infiltrate the air; and saturate oceans, rivers, plants, humans and animals.

Nature has changed, especially in the last 50 years, becoming more virulent in reaction to increasing pollution by chemicals and pesticides. These toxins involve many life forms and their immunity or adaption. The original link from about "Aerial Spraying of Bacillus Thuringiensis" was removed!

Proliferation of drug-resistant, virulent pathogens in the environment is accelerating, and more widely than ever before. Is this perhaps nature’s revenge? No, it is just nature’s response to man-made pollution.

Many life forms will die off, but others will survive and become stronger than ever before. Insect populations will increase and become more virulent, as will molds, which are also favored by global warming.

In Europe, the latest statistics reveal that almost 70 percent of all households are highly contaminated with all kinds of molds, causing a rise in allergies and lung infections.

Forest rangers worldwide are complaining of the die-off of trees too. They state that there are more trees in the forests now, but these trees are like zombies. Their leaves and trunks look normal, but internally they are dead and totally rotten from infestations of various fungi. These fungi slowly degrade the trees’ cellulose and mainly lignin, which is the collagen of plants.

Nature’s balance is now completely out of control. No expert can predict what the future may bring after a total collapse of natural systems as we know them.

Increasing reports from hospitals and retirement centers for the elderly prove that staff hygiene and resistant bacteria, such as MRSA, are uncontrollable. You enter the hospital with a broken leg, and you leave the hospital dead on the transport to the morgue. What a promising future!

Open: Implications of MRSA for hospitals, schools, prisons, and other dense facilities or populations

Studies reveal that most pathogens in such institutions are not only found, for example, in bathrooms, but on the very coats and stethoscopes of physicians. Hospital settings can be really dangerous also because health care workers commonly transmit yeast on their hands to the patients, and there is already an alarming rise in Systemic Fungal Infections everywhere.

A study showed that candida was found on the hands of 15-54% of workers in ICU. Fungal infections cause 25% of deaths cases in people with leukemia. In transplation patients fungal infection causes 5-10% of deaths cases. Candida causes most bloodstream infections, and there has been a 500% increase in blood stream infections with candida since 1980 in the last 30 years. Also resistance to antifungals is on the rise and a big problem now.

Sooner or later, more epidemic reports will surface to verify that resistant bacteria or unknown fungi can cause encephalitis or meningitis, as recently happened with bacteria found in baby food and Listeria bacteria found in sea salmon.

The latest cases prove this point: Canadian vegetables and tomatoes from Texas both have been found to be contaminated with pathogens. Recent deaths in the U.S. were caused by peanut butter contaminated with Salmonella. No antibiotics could help the patients, because antibiotic-resistant bacteria had overtaken their immune systems.

Overuse of legally administered antibiotics by veterinarians and farmers licensed to handle pharmaceuticals and chemicals is a major contributing factor in such tragedies.

Open: Animal Agriculture Boosts Antibiotic Resistance

All the manure and urine from cattle and hogs treated with antibiotics are reused by farmers as natural fertilizer for their fields. German scientists now find that antibiotic-resistant bacteria (perhaps also B. thuringiensis), and even the antibiotics previously used against them, can be absorbed from the soil by commonly cultivated vegetable plants, and later passed on to the consumers.

Do not think that eating organic vegetables instead meat makes you healthier. That may be now a thing of the past!

Even the FDA promulgates the use of fewer antibiotics. Meat producers should use certain antibiotics only to assure animal health and stop using the drugs to increase production and promote growth.

Additionally, following the latest news, we learn that the global food chain of land or marine life forms will be probably interrupted by the devastating oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico.

Furthermore, in the case of melting polar ice, if government attempts to reduce atmospheric warming with chemtrails are not effective, this may be the final curtain for nature, and probably the end of mankind too. Incompetent politicians and big money-addicted companies have destroyed this world. Thanks a lot!!
