  • SSYFY Channel - Joe Rogan Questions Everything, Episode 4: Biopocalypse - August 15, 2013

    “Morgellons, a controversial medical diagnosis where strange unidentifiable fibers come out of the skin and body. Many health professionals are dismissive about the existence of Morgellons. … Joe wants to know if Morgellons is real… he meets Dr. Greg Smith, a pediatrician who not only studies Morgellons, but also claims to suffer from it. … Smith tells his tale: in 2004, he found what he thought were “cactus spines” in his arms. Smith’s theory: Morgellons is related to Lyme disease, which might contribute to the formation of these fibers. According to Smith, the vast majority of Morgellons patients will also be found to have Lyme disease as well. … Episode includes various interviews and conversations with others including microscopic examinations of MD specimens. Joe’s conclusion: Morgellons is a real disease, probably an offshoot of Lyme disease…” Learn more.

    The Devil’s Bait … Symptoms, signs, and the riddle of Morgellons by Leslie Jamison

    This was written by Leslie Jamison, a Yale graduate sociology student who attended the CEHF 5th Annual Morgellons Conference held March 24-25, 2012. Ms. Jamison takes a moment to look inside the world of MD patients dealing with a disease that many outsiders do not believe exists.The article is not written from a medical viewpoint but, rather, with a sociological insight in an attempt to connect with and realize the impact that MD has had upon individuals. The objectivity is refreshing, powerfully compelling and compassionate. She challenges readers to give up every preconceived notion and accord some reverence to MD patients; to view a segment of our population ridiculed and shunned by the medical community and, for the most part, society at large; to think outside the traditional mind-set at the possibilities of "what if"..."
