How having EBV (and silver/mercury fillings) changed my view of "Terrorism"...

(Original 2002 article reprinted 2010 by request)

I was a musician. For 32 years. Until 1999 when I began experiencing numbness in my face, fingers and knees that often left me unable to stay upright. In 2000, I fell so many times while trying to walk, that my doctor tested me for Multiple Sclerosis. In 2002, I was tested for Epstein-Barr, the mononucleosis bug. At that time my Epstein-Barr virus blood antibod(ies) ratio was 1:2560. Our family doctor was speechless.

There are seven levels, or titers, of this disease that can be determined, by a simple blood test::

  • Level 1 viral capsid antigen titer (lowest incidence of illness) -- blood antibodies are measured at 1:80 ratio
  • Level 2 titer -- blood antibodies are measured at 1:160 ratio
  • Level 3 titer -- blood antibodies are measured at 1:320 ratio
  • Level 4 titer -- blood antibodies are measured at 1:640 ratio
  • Level 5 titer -- blood antibodies are measured at 1:1280 ratio
  • Level 6 titer -- blood antibodies are measured at 1:2560 ratio
  • Level 7 titer -- blood antibodies are measured at 1:5120 ratio
    (this ratio typically present with incurable Burkitt's Lymphoma 
    and/or naso-pharyngeal cancer).
  • When I contracted Mononucleosis at age 16, it made me so sick and weak I missed a half a year of high school.  I could barely crawl to the parking lot when school let out in the afternoon. Over this past July 4th, 2002--35 years later, I felt that sick again.  Our doctor explained that the origin of Mono is a virus now referred to as the Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV).  As it turns out, what is called EBV is one of those DNA/RNA viruses that, once you catch it, stays with you the rest of your life.  But unlike measles and mumps which, once caught, don't have you fearing a flare up, Epstein-Barr can lay dormant for awhile then suddenly flare in stages ranging from flu-like malaise or CHRONIC FATIGUE to life-threatening cancers, given the right combination of external/internal stimuli/stressors.

    He went on to explain how Epstein-Barr is difficult to diagnose, too, because it often presents as Cold symptoms which are commonly found--sinusitis, sore throat, stiff or sore neck, enlarged glands, muscle fatigue or pain, fever (or not).  This makes EBV particularly hard to diagnose, unless one presents with the acute symptoms of one of its more debilitating manifestations--Mono, Lupus, Burkitt's Lymphoma, or naso-pharyngeal cancer.   Otherwise, a flare of EBV may present like ordinary cold or flu.   Regrettably, doctors do not typically run blood tests for mere sniffles with accompanying body aches; they more typically treat the symptoms without looking for an underlying cause.  Unless a specific antibody test is done, however, a person infected with Epstein-Barr may suffer bouts with this disease for years and years until they are so sick that a proper blood test (viral capsid antigen titer ) becomes necessary to ascertain this transient, yet potentially deadly virus.

    From all the available information I've read since then, EBV is one of the most easily contracted, most prevalent viruses on the planet.  It comes to life the moment it comes in contact with the tissue lining our mouths and throat. This commonly carried virus, however, is extremely dangerous.  It there remains hidden in the body's B-cells, awaiting transformation into a kind of "virus factory", expelling more particles into the bloodstream.  B-cells are responsible for antibody-mediated immunity; maturing in the bone marrow and circulating within the circulatory and lymphatic systems. B-cells work chiefly by secreting soluble substances known as antibodies.  Antibodies are only produced by B-cells, and are our bodies' disease fighting weapons. In a most insidiuos manner, however, the Epstein-Barr virus--or that organism TERMED Epstein-Barr eventually becomes immune to our antibodies and then begins sapping our physical, mental, emotional and immunilogic strength.  It is not a "fast bullet" organism, but a long drawn out slow one, wreaking havoc on the body and it's defense mechanisms all along the path of destruction, like, say a wasting disease.  And EBV's early stages usually go undetected because they appear as benign, often unrelated symptoms.  The end stages, however, are not benign.   And a patient may reach end stage EBV without any discernable warning.  [1]

    EBV belongs to an insidious group of DNA-replicating organisms called Mycoplasmae which, once inside the "host" (person infected), set up housekeeping by invading every immunity-producing function of the body.  Even more insidious, is that this organism, in order to survive, steals fragments of its host's DNA in order to create optimum living conditions, resulting in altered DNA which then can be passed on to future generations.  In other words, EBV once contracted, acts like a parasite-- desiring life, rewriting our DNA, and thriving off of our blood, serum, and sterols--in return, attacking multiple immunologic systems and neuro-muscular function, activating pre-existing conditions like arthritis or shingles (from the Chicken Pox virus, VARICELLA or Herpes Zoster), and passing on a legacy of weakened DNA to future generations of unsuspecting individuals.[2] My own grandfather died prematurely at 55 years of age from naso-pharyngeal concer. Coincidence that I and our own children have this vairus, as well?

    What is/are  Mycoplasma? (by Donald W. Scott MA, MSc)

    There are 200 species of Mycoplasma. Most are innocuous and do no harm; only four or five are pathogenic. Mycoplasma fermentans (incognitus strain)
    probably comes from the nucleus of the Brucella bacterium. This disease agent is not a bacterium and not a virus; it is a mutated form of the Brucella bacterium, combined with a visna virus, from which the mycoplasma is extracted.  The pathogenic Mycoplasma used to be very innocuous, but biological warfare research conducted between 1942 and the present time has resulted in the creation of more deadly and infectious forms of Mycoplasma. Researchers extracted this mycoplasma from the Brucella bacterium and actually reduced the disease to a crystalline form. They "weaponised" it and tested it on an unsuspecting public in North America.

    Dr Maurice Hilleman, chief virologist for the pharmaceutical company Merck Sharp & Dohme, stated that this disease agent is now carried by everybody in North America and possibly most people throughout the world. Despite reporting flaws, there has clearly been an increased incidence of all the neuro/systemic degenerative diseases since World War II and especially since the 1970s with the arrival of previously unheard-of diseases like chronic fatigue syndrome and AIDS.

    According to Dr Shyh-Ching Lo [Editor's note; see US Patent #5,242,820 below], senior researcher at The Armed Forces Institute of Pathology and one of America’s top mycoplasma researchers, this disease agent causes many illnesses including AIDS, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, Crohn’s colitis, Type I diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Wegener’s disease and collagen-vascular diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and Alzheimer’s.

    Dr Charles Engel, who is with the US National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland, stated the following at an NIH meeting on February 7, 2000: "I am now of the view that the probable cause of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia is the mycoplasma..."

    I have all the official documents to prove that mycoplasma is the disease agent in chronic fatigue syndrome/fibromyalgia as well as in AIDS, multiple sclerosis and many other illnesses. Of these, 80% are US or Canadian official government documents, and 20% are articles from peer-reviewed journals such as the Journal of the American Medical Association, New England Journal of Medicine and the Canadian Medical Association Journal. The journal articles and government documents complement each other.

    How Mycoplasma works--

    The mycoplasma acts by entering into the individual cells of the body, depending upon your genetic predisposition.

    You may develop neurological diseases if the pathogen destroys certain cells in your brain, or you may develop Crohn’s colitis if the pathogen invades and destroys cells in the lower bowel.  Once the mycoplasma gets into the cell, it can lie there doing nothing sometimes for 10, 20 or 30 years, but if a trauma occurs like an accident or a vaccination that doesn’t take, the mycoplasma can become triggered.

    Because it is only the DNA particle of the bacterium, it doesn’t have any organelles to process its own nutrients, so it grows by uptaking pre-formed sterols from its host cell and it literally kills the cell; the cell ruptures and what is left gets dumped into the bloodstream.

    A Laboratory-Made Disease Agent
    (excerpted from Nexus Magazine)

    Many doctors don’t know about this mycoplasma disease agent because it was developed by the US military in biological warfare experimentation and it was not  made public. [Editor's note: This pathogen was patented by the United States Department of Defense and Dr Shyh-Ching Lo. You may obtain a copy of this documented patent # 5,242,820 from the US Patent and Trademark Office.

    In 1942, the governments of the United States, Canada and Britain entered into a secret agreement to create two types of biological weapons (one that would kill, and one that was disabling) for use in the war against Germany and Japan, who were also developing biological weapons. While they researched a number or disease pathogens, they primarily focused on the Brucella bacterium and began to weaponise it.

    From its inception, the biowarfare program was characterised by continuing in-depth review and participation by the most eminent scientists, medical consultants, industrial experts and government officials, and it was classified Top Secret.

    The US Public Health Service also closely followed the progress of biological warfare research and development from the very start of the program, and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the United States were working with the military in weaponising these diseases. These are diseases that have existed for thousands of years, but they have been weaponised—which means they’ve been made more contagious and more effective. And now they are spreading. Or being spread.

    The Special Virus Cancer Program, created by the CIA and NIH to develop a deadly pathogen for which humanity had no natural immunity (AIDS), was disguised  as a war on cancer but was actually part of MKNAOMI.2 Many members of the Senate and House of Representatives do not know what has been going on.  For  example, the US Senate Committee on Government Reform had searched the archives in Washington and other places for the document titled "The Special Virus  Cancer Program: Progress Report No. 8", and couldn’t find it. Somehow they heard I had it, called me and asked me to mail it to them. Imagine: a retired schoolteacher being called by the United States Senate and asked for one of their secret documents! The US Senate, through the Government Reform Committee, is trying to stop this type of government research.

    Crystalline Brucella

    The title page of a genuine US Senate Study, declassified on February 24, 1977, shows that George Merck, of the pharmaceutical company, Merck Sharp & Dohme (which now makes cures for diseases that at one time it created), reported in 1946 to the US Secretary of War that his researchers had managed "for the first time" to "isolate the disease agent in crystalline form".(3)

    They had produced a crystalline bacterial toxin extracted from the Brucella bacterium. The bacterial toxin could be removed in crystalline form and stored, transported and deployed without deteriorating. It could be delivered by other vectors such as insects, aerosol or the food chain (in nature it is delivered within the bacterium). But the factor that is working in the Brucella is the mycoplasma.

    Brucella is a disease agent that doesn’t kill people; it disables them. But, according to Dr Donald MacArthur of the Pentagon, appearing before a congressional committee in 1969,(4) researchers found that if they had mycoplasma at a certain strength—actually, 10 to the 10th power—it would develop into AIDS, and the person would die from it within a reasonable period of time because it could bypass the natural human defences.  If the strength was 10 to 8, the person would manifest with chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia. If it was l0 to 7, they would present as wasting; they wouldn’t die and they wouldn’t be disabled, but they would not be very interested in life; they would waste away.

    Most of us have never heard of the disease brucellosis because it largely disappeared when they began pasteurising milk, which was the carrier. One salt shaker of the pure disease agent in a crystalline form could sicken the entire population of Canada. It is absolutely deadly, not so much in terms of killing the body but disabling it.

    Because the crystalline disease agent goes into solution in the blood, ordinary blood and tissue tests will not reveal its presence. The mycoplasma will only crystallise at 8.1 pH, and the blood has a pH of 7.4 pH. So the doctor thinks your complaint is "all in your head".

    Crystalline Brucella and Multiple Sclerosis
    In 1998 in Rochester, New York, I met a former military man, PFC Donald Bentley, who gave me a document and told me: "I was in the US Army, and I was trained in bacteriological warfare. We were handling a bomb filled with brucellosis, only it wasn’t brucellosis; it was a Brucella toxin in crystalline form. We were spraying it on the Chinese and North Koreans."

    He showed me his certificate listing his training in chemical, biological and radiological warfare. Then he showed me 16 pages of documents given to him by the US military when he was discharged from the service. They linked brucellosis with multiple sclerosis, and stated in one section: "Veterans with multiple sclerosis, a kind of creeping paralysis developing to a degree of 10% or more disability within two years after separation from active service, may be presumed to be service-connected for disability compensation. Compensation is payable to eligible veterans whose disabilities are due to service." In other words: "If you become ill with multiple sclerosis, it is because you were handling this Brucella, and we will give you a pension. Don’t go raising any fuss about it." In these documents, the government of the United States revealed evidence of the cause of multiple sclerosis, but they didn’t make it known to the public—or to your doctor.

    In a 1949 report, Drs Kyger and Haden suggested "the possibility that multiple sclerosis might be a central nervous system manifestation of chronic brucellosis". Testing approximately 113 MS patients, they found that almost 95% also tested positive for Brucella.(5) We have a document from a medical journal, which concludes that one out of 500 people who had brucellosis would develop what they call neurobrucellosis; in other words, brucellosis in the brain, where the Brucella settles in the lateral ventrides—where the disease multiple sclerosis is basically located. (6)

    Contamination of Camp Detrick Lab Workers
    A 1948 New England Journal of Medicine report titled "Acute Brucellosis Among Laboratory Workers" shows us how actively dangerous this agent is.7   The laboratory workers were from Camp Detrick, Frederick, Maryland, where they were developing biological weapons. Even though these workers had been vaccinated, wore rubberised suits and masks and worked through holes in the compartment, many of them came down with this awful disease because it is so absolutely and terrifyingly infectious.

    The article was written by Lt Calderone Howell, Marine Corps Captain Edward Miller, Marine Corps, Lt Emily Kelly, United States Naval Reserve; and Captain Henry Bookman. They were all military personnel engaged in making the disease agent Brucella into a more effective biological weapon


    Testing the Dispersal Methods--
    Documented evidence proves that the biological weapons they were developing were tested on the public in various communities without their knowledge or consent.

    The government knew that crystalline Brucella would cause disease in humans. Now they needed to determine how it would spread and the best way to disperse it. They tested dispersal methods for Brucella suis and Brucella melitensis at Dugway Proving Ground, Utah, in June and September 1952. Probably, 100% of us now are infected with Brucella suis and Brucella melitensis.(8)

    Another government document recommended the genesis of open-air vulnerability tests and covert research and development programs to be conducted by the Army and supported by the Central Intelligence Agency.

    At that time, the Government of Canada was asked by the US Government to cooperate in testing weaponised Brucella, and Canada cooperated fully with the United States. The US Government wanted to determine whether mosquitoes would carry the disease and also if the air would carry it. A government report stated that "open-air testing of infectious biological agents is considered essential to an ultimate understanding of biological warfare potentialities because of the many unknown factors affecting the degradation of micro-organisms in the atmosphere".9

    Testing via Mosquito Vector in Punta Gorda, Florida--
    A report from The New England Journal of Medicine reveals that one of the first outbreaks of chronic fatigue syndrome was in Punta Gorda, Florida, back in 1957.(10)   It was a strange coincidence that a week before these people came down with chronic fatigue syndrome, there was a huge influx of mosquitoes.

    The National Institutes of Health claimed that the mosquitoes came from a forest fire 30 miles away. The truth is that those mosquitoes were infected in Canada by Dr Guilford B. Reed at Queen’s University. They were bred in Belleville, Ontario, and taken down to Punta Gorda and released there.

    Within a week, the first five cases ever of chronic fatigue syndrome were reported to the local clinic in Punta Gorda. The cases kept coming until finally 450 people were ill with the disease.

    Testing via Mosquito Vector in Ontario--
    The Government of Canada had established the Dominion Parasite Laboratory in Belleville, Ontario, where it raised 100 million mosquitoes a month. These were shipped to Queen’s University and certain other facilities to be infected with this crystalline disease agent The mosquitoes were then let loose in certain communities in the middle of the night, so that the researchers could determine how many people would become ill with chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia, which was the first disease to show.

    One of the communities they tested it on was the St Lawrence Seaway valley, all the way from Kingston to Cornwall, in 1984. They let out hundreds of millions of infected mosquitoes. Over 700 people in the next four or five weeks developed myalgic encephalomyelitis, or chronic fatigue syndrome.


    Mad Cow Disease/Kuru/CJD in the Fore Tribe--
    Before and during World War II, at the infamous Camp 731 in Manchuria, the Japanese military contaminated prisoners of war with certain disease agents.

    They also established a research camp in New Guinea in 1942. There they experimented upon the Fore Indian tribe and inoculated them with a minced-up version of the brains of diseased sheep containing the visna virus which causes "mad cow disease" or Creutzfeldt—Jakob disease.

    About five or six years later, after the Japanese had been driven out, the poor people of the Fore tribe developed what they called kuru, which was their word for "wasting", and they began to shake, lose their appetites and die. The autopsies revealed that their brains had literally turned to mush. They had contracted "mad cow disease" from the Japanese experiments.

    When World War II ended, Dr Ishii Shiro—the medical doctor who was commissioned as a General in the Japanese Army so he could take command of Japan’s biological warfare development, testing and deployment—was captured. He was given the choice of a job with the United States Army or execution as a war criminal. Not surprisingly, Dr Ishii Shiro chose to work with the US military to demonstrate how the Japanese had created mad cow disease in the Fore Indian tribe.

    In 1957, when the disease was beginning to blossom in full among the Fore people, Dr Carleton Gajdusek of the US National Institutes of Health headed to New Guinea to determine how the minced-up brains of the visna-infected sheep affected them. He spent a couple of years there, studying the Fore people, and wrote an extensive report. He won the Nobel Prize for "discovering" kuru disease in the Fore tribe.

    Testing Carcinogens over Winnipeg, Manitoba--
    In 1953, the US Government asked the Canadian Government if it could test a chemical over the city of Winnipeg. It was a big city with 500,000 people, miles from anywhere. The American military sprayed this carcinogenic chemical in a 1,000%-attenuated form, which they said would be so watered down that nobody would get very sick; however, if people came to clinics with a sniffle, a sore throat or ringing in their ears, the researchers would be able to determine what percentage would have developed cancer if the chemical had been used at full strength.

    We located evidence that the Americans had indeed tested this carcinogenic chemical—zinc cadmium sulphide—over Winnipeg in 1953. We wrote to the Government of Canada, explaining that we had solid evidence of the spraying and asking that we be informed as to how high up in the government the request for permission to spray had gone. We did not receive a reply.

    Shortly after, the Pentagon held a press conference on May 14, 1997, where they admitted what they had done. Robert Russo, writing for the Toronto Star11 from Washington, DC, reported the Pentagon’s admission that in 1953 it had obtained permission from the Canadian Government to fly over the city of Winnipeg and spray out this chemical—which sifted down on kids going to school, housewives hanging out their laundry and people going to work. US Army planes and trucks released the chemical 36 times between July and August 1953. The Pentagon got its statistics, which indicated that if the chemical released had been full strength, approximately a third of the population of Winnipeg would have developed cancers over the next five years.

    One professor, Dr Hugh Fudenberg, MD, twice nominated for the Nobel Prize, wrote a magazine article stating that the Pentagon came clean on this because two researchers in Sudbury, Ontario—Don Scott and his son, Bill Scott—had been revealing this to the public. However, the legwork was done by other researchers!

    The US Army actually conducted a series of simulated germ warfare tests over Winnipeg. The Pentagon lied about the tests to the mayor, saying that they were testing a chemical fog over the city, which would protect Winnipeg in the event of a nuclear attack.

    A report commissioned by US Congress, chaired by Dr Rogene Henderson, lists 32 American towns and cities used as test sites as well.


    The AIDS pathogen was created out of a Brucella bacterium mutated with a visna virus; then the toxin was removed as a DNA particle called a mycoplasma. They used the same mycoplasma to develop disabling diseases like MS, Crohn’s colitis, Lyme disease, etc.

    In the previously mentioned US congressional document of a meeting held on June 9, 1969, (12) the Pentagon delivered a report to Congress about biological weapons. The Pentagon stated: "We are continuing to develop disabling weapons." Dr MacArthur, who was in charge of the research, said: "We are developing a new lethal weapon, a synthetic biological agent that does not naturally exist, and for which no natural immunity could have been acquired."

    Think about it. If you have a deficiency of acquired immunity, you have an acquired immunity deficiency. Plain as that. AIDS.

    In laboratories throughout the United States and in a certain number in Canada including at the University of Alberta. the US Government provided the leadership for the development of AIDS for the purpose of population control. After the scientists had perfected it, the government sent medical teams from the Centers for Disease Control-under the direction of Dr Donald A. Henderson, their investigator into the 1957 chronic fatigue epidemic in Punta Gorda—during 1969 to 1971 to Africa and some countries such as India, Nepal and Pakistan where they thought the population was becoming too large.13 They gave them all a free vaccination against smallpox; but five years after receiving this vaccination, 60% of those inoculated were suffering from AIDS. They tried to blame it on a monkey, which is nonsense.

    A professor at the University of Arkansas made the claim that while studying the tissues of a dead chimpanzee she found traces of HIV. The chimpanzee that she had tested was born in the United States 23 years earlier. It had lived its entire life in a US military laboratory where it was used as an experimental animal in the development of these diseases. When it died, its body was shipped to a storage place where it was deep-frozen and stored in case they wanted to analyse it later. Then they decided that they didn’t have enough space for it, so they said, "Anybody want this dead chimpanzee?" and this researcher from Arkansas said: "Yes. Send it down to the University of Arkansas. We are happy to get anything we can get." They shipped it down and she found HIV in it. That virus was acquired by that chimpanzee in the laboratories where it was tested.14

    Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ Myalgic Encephalomyelitis--
    Chronic fatigue syndrome is more accurately called myalgic encephalomyelitis. The chronic fatigue syndrome nomenclature was given by the US National Institutes of Health because it wanted to downgrade and belittle the disease.

    An MRI scan of the brain of a teenage girl with chronic fatigue syndrome displayed a great many scars or punctate lesions in the left frontal lobe area where portions of the brain had literally dissolved and been replaced by scar tissue. This caused cognitive impairment, memory impairment, etc. And what was the cause of the scarring? The mycoplasma. So there is very concrete physical evidence of these tragic diseases, even though doctors continue to say they don’t know where it comes from or what they can do about it.

    Many people with chronic fatigue syndrome, myalgic encephalo-myelitis and fibromyalgia who apply to the Canada Pensions Plan Review Tribunal will be turned down because they cannot prove that they are ill. During 1999 I conducted several appeals to Canada Pensions and the Workers Compensation Board (WCB, now the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board) on behalf of people who have been turned down. I provided documented evidence of these illnesses, and these people were all granted their pensions on the basis of the evidence that I provided.

    In March 1999, for example, I appealed to the WCB on behalf of a lady with flbromya1gia who had been, denied her pension back in 1993. The vice-chairman of the board came to Sudbury to hear the appeal, and I showed him a number of documents which proved that this lady was physically ill with fibromyalgia. It was a disease that caused physical damage, and the disease agent was a mycoplasma. The guy listened for three hours, and then he said to me: "Mr Scott, how is it I have never heard of any of this before? I said: "We brought a top authority in this area into Sudbury to speak on this subject and not a single solitary doctor came to that presentation."


    Polymerase Chain Reaction Test--
    Information is not generally available about this agent because, first of all, the mycoplasma is such a minutely small disease agent. A hundred years ago, certain medical theoreticians conceived that there must be a form or disease agent smaller than bacteria and viruses. This pathogenic organism, the mycoplasma, is so minute that normal blood and tissue tests will not reveal its presence as the source of the disease.

    Your doctor may diagnose you with Alzheimer’s disease, and he will say:

    "Golly, we don’t know where Alzheimer’s comes from. All we know is that your brain begins to deteriorate, cells rupture, the myelin sheath around the nerves dissolves, and so on." Or if you have Chronic Catigue Syndrome, the doctor will not be able to find any cause for your illness with ordinary blood and tissue tests.

    This mycoplasma couldn’t be detected until about 30 years ago when the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test was developed, in which a sample of your blood is examined and damaged particles are removed and subjected to a polymerase chain reaction. This causes the DNA in the particles to break down. The particles are then placed in a nutrient, which causes the DNA to grow back into its original form. If enough of the substance is produced, the form can be recognised, so it can be determined whether Brucella or another kind of agent is behind that particular mycoplasma.

    EBV is but one of the thousand names for mycoplasmic wasting disease illnesses--nearly perfect in design as a military "stealth" weapon.  The mycoplasma enters its host rather unremarkably and can remain virtually undetected for life or misdiagnosed, until it finally kills its victim after slowly destroying the host's immune system over a ten to thirty year period.

    Read Elizabeth Naugel's testimony before the NIH re: her son & Huntsville, Texas -

    Epstein-Barr and all its related virsues are shared effortlessly and undetectedly by sneezing, coughing, saliva, and other exchanges of bodily fluids.  As I said, most of the time with EBV, we only experience a mild case of cold or flu-like symptoms once infected, and, if our immune systems are working properly--although we keep this virus for a lifetime, like chicken pox or mumps, usually remains in check via a healthy immune system. In my case, however, after reviewing my otherwise unremarkable blood tests, our doctor observed that something else must be assaulting my immune system, hence allowing EBV to flourish. My first complete blood count (CBC) showed great everything, nothing unusual--no elevated white blood cells (WBC); no thyroid problems. In fact my initial blood work looked so good as to make my claims of bone-crushing pain and fatigue almost unbelievable.  The second test came back a high positive for EBV antibodies.  That test, however, showed no presence of any typical auto-immune "enemies."  The doctor said the good news was there was the hope that I could shore up a curiously flagging immune system with nutritional supplements which might provide some relief, but he concluded he could not offer us much in the way of info regarding how and why my body had apparently turned on itself and was going down for the count.

    I asked him about those other symptoms I had reported--burning tongue, burning or numb hands and feet, lowered body temperature, ringing ears, ridges in my nails, numb lower jaw.    He said general medical doctors just didn't know enough about EBV to say for sure.

    When I reported our doctor's findings to our friends and family, one suggested that I was displaying some known symptoms of heavy metal toxicity.  My brain was too full to even hear this at the time.  But as I finished the book on EBV, I noticed that some of my multitude of symptoms indeed did not seem to fit the classic EBV profile.  I didn't think I could take any more bad news...   At their insistence, however, I contacted a woman who had been bed-ridden for two years inexplicably, with what had been deemed MS or EBV. No blood test was taken in her case, however--and unfortunately EBV is now routinely and often erroneously diagnosed when patients present with Chronic Fatigue Symptoms, Immune Deficiency, or Fibromyalgia. A blood test is crucial to proper diagnosis.-- calling an illness EBV when it may not be EBV, does NO one any service and may prevent an accurate diagnosis.  Do the blood titre.  Their friend claimed to have been mercury poisoned.  And yet since having her silver amalgams removed, she claimed to have been relieved of many of her symptoms, including paralysis and depression. But...she insisted.....don't believe her, go read Andrew Hall Cutler, PhD, PE's textbook, "Amalgam Illness: Diagnosis and Treatment" before I made up my mind.   And she let me borrow her own copy to read.

    I was so impressed, I bought one for us and one for our family doctor, upon reading it.  You may read about this terrific book online HERE:

    Now for a bit on the damage done by simple silver fillings. 

    There is finally a growing awareness among medical and dental professionals that mercury toxicity caused by dental amalgams, causes a severe, potentially life-threatening auto-immune disorder.  The European Dental Associations have in the past five years conceded that copper/mercury amalgams have deadly consequences, and in Sweden precedent setting practices of free amalgam removal have be instituted.   During the 70's in Norway, for example, it was more economical to fill teeth with an amalgam made primarily of mercury (70%), copper (30%) cadmium, and other assorted toxic metals.  You can imagine the long term results.

    Read about it here:

    I never knew about any potential mercury toxicity from silver amalgam.  And my own mouth was full of it.  Some of my fillings were 25 years old and cracked and leaking...and I really didn't know that the silver amalgam which is commonly used in our American teeth typically contains between 48% and 57% mercury?  Did you know that mercury is one of the top three deadliest metals in the universe and is the deadliest non-radioactive element on Earth?  Did you know that each time you chew or drink hot liquids, you emit enough methyl-mercury vapor to contaminate a twenty acre field?  Did you know that just a few of the known consequences of methyl-mercury (that which mercury becomes in our mouths--what the mercury in our teeth converts to in our blood stream via saliva) are: fiybromyalgia, CFS, generalized morning stiffness, idiopathic skin rashes, axillary lymph node swelling, subcutaneous nodules, ringing ears, burning tongue, hands, feet, ridges on nail beds, lowered body temperature (mine averaged 97.2-97.7), depression (including bipolar behavior and szchizo-affective patterns), memory loss, disorientation, tremors, Parkinson's, Hodgkins, Alzheimer's, Lupus, MS, ALS, Autism, Crohns, Raynaud's, irritable bowel, leaky gut, yeast overgrowths, excessive weight gain, inexplicable weight loss, numbness in extremities?

    Here are some of the "diseases" a well-meaning physician might mistakenly misdiagnose chronic mercury poisoning as:

     Addison's disease
     Alzheimer's' disease
     Amylotrophic lateral sclerosis
     Ankylosing spondylitis
     Anorexia nervosa

    I suggest to all of you who presently have "silver" fillings, at least, in your mouth you are making a battery containing electrically charged and toxic metals which may may you very sick, and you should at least read this book.  Mercury (Hg) combined with silver (amalgam) and oral saliva in the mouth produces toxic methyl-mercury (Hg2) in the bloodstream, an even deadlier substance that elemental Mercury (Hg).  Methyl-mercury vapor toxicity is a progressive, cumulative, destructive illness.  It will not magically reverse itself.  You do not naturally expell it from your body.  Mercury illness originates from the most deadly non-radioactive metal in the known universe...and it can be prevented!  At best, what you have in your own mouth may turn against your immune system, creating a favorable environment for other illnesses to prevail, like say Mononucleosis, or EBV.  Worse, methyl-mercury (Hg2) accumulates in the body, most commonly in the circulatory and neurological centers, crossing the brain barrier--until various systems of the body overload and shut down.  The insidious part is, like Epstein-Barr, symptoms of true mercury toxicity (above lists) may first present as a range of other illnesses.  And, unfortunately, due to lack of education and/or constraints posed by HMO's, doctors are often left treating symptoms, and, most times, ineffectively.

    Such is the case with so many narrowly understood illnesses.

    To learn more, go here:
    (The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology  pages--read all of these)

    ...or simply perform your own GOOGLE Search
    Type in "dental amalgam poisoning"....

    I have also discovered in the past three months that there are a lot of "snake-oil" information and remedies out there regarding both EBV and AI (Amalgam Illness).  Snake-oil can kill you.   The truth can be easily learned about these illnesses.  Gooogle WEAPONIZED MYCOPLASMA and DENTAL AMALGAM TOXICITY and read.  Dr. Cutler's book offers hope to even those who aren't mercury-toxic, as his vitamin/supplemental regimen is easy to adapt to, affordable, doesn't require dramatic lifestyle changes, and--fortunately for those like me with EBV--it perfectly aligns with recommended therapeutic nutritional regimes for EBV.  In other words, his simple recommended regimen of vitamins and minerals can help anyone feel better, but it translated to pure gold for me. You can email me HERE for a list of affordable supplements I take which have really helped me to feel better.

    Relevant to this particular "war" rant here, is the reality that a deadly toxic substance has been permitted, no, encouraged to be put in our mouths for the past 150 years.  And our own American Dental Association (ADA) has suppressed this truth about amalgams the entire time for two important reasons--(1) to preserve their profits --they make money every time it is put in our mouths since the ADA OWNS THE PATENT ON SILVER AMALGAM ("silver amalgam is cheaper to use and easier to work with than the alternative")--and (2) to prevent/supress an inherent potential for lawsuits if the truth were to leak out, as it were. The key was and is deny, deny, deny....

    Note in paragraph 3: " It has now been well established that the mechanical properties of the dental amalgam deteriorate as the residual mercury content increases." There in fact appears to be a great financial incentive by teh ADA to obfuscate truth.

    Remember those cigarette manufacturers' lawsuits?     Wherever there exists a pile of money to be made or held onto, there is usually something rotten thriving at the bottom of the pile.  (I don't know who originally made that observation, but it sure seems to be accurate.) And  the love of money and/or power has apparently precipitated a number of those events I've deigned to expose about in Parts 1-8 of this"Hillbilly" editorial series.

    But how does this so far in any way relate to the title of this particular page regarding the "Real War(s) Being Waged Against Us"?
    Just how do my ailments tie into the theme of global terrorism?

    Let me share some additional tidbits from those aforementioned connecting hornets' nests I stumbled into:

    For those of you who may need some fresh air now, you may leave this page HERE!
    (Feel free to return when you've regained your strength, or done the homework....)

    For the rest of you , and certainly any of you who beleive you may be afflicted with the so-called Epstein-Barr Virus (if you have actually had Mononucleosis, and/or have a mouthful of silver, or are merely interested where this is all going) you may want to read on....
