Re: Fusarium

The name of Fusarium comes from Latin fusus, meaning a spindle.

I've been saying it for years- Morgellons wraps! Spindle may be a more apt word choice.

 Following an outbreak of Fusarium oxysporum that affected coca plantations in Peru, and other crops planted in the area, the United States has proposed the use of the agent as a mycoherbicide in drug eradication. In 2000, a proposal was passed to use the agent as part of Plan Colombia. In response to concerns use of the fungus could be perceived as biological warfare, the Clinton Administration "waived" this use of Fusarium. A subsequent law passed in 2006 has mandated the testing of mycoherbicide agents - eitherFusarium oxysporum or Crivellia papaveracea - in field trials in U.S. territory.[13] Use of Fusarium oxysporum for these tests has raised concerns because resistant coca from the previous outbreak has been widely cultivated, and the fungus has been implicated in the birth of 31 anencephalic children in the Rio Grande region of Texas in 1991[citation needed], the loss of palm trees in Los Angeles, and eye infections from contact lens solutions.

Wow, that hits close to home -- and I'm not just referring to those terrible eye infections I used to get from sleeping with my extended-wear contacts. It's funny that the two states mentioned here were Cali and Tx.

The Pythium suggestion is interesting too. Scabdraggr would have good input on this, with his background.

But yeah, something along these lines. Until somebody shows me how borrelia bacteria is capable of manifesting into the bizarre macro skin artifacts that we see, I suggest that Morgellons is the fungal-like opportunistic infection that comes after the lyme. Perhaps we will learn that lyme disease isn't required of Morgellons hosts -- maybe parasites, drug use, or pesticide and solvent exposure is sufficient to provide a viable host environment.
