"With contour the history of disease when it was first recorded the holy holy political nature of air and then we wanted to a couple of hours bits for the people listening. They don't get the name Roland bothering the person who is kind of the first person to start to see William Liam Dafa. I think I'm starting at seven. Roy You gotta you gotTa get it. Yeah that those wild tripped and like the one who can kerr. Who encouraged me to become an expert on the whole subject for my own personal Sandy he was that fans that same family doctor diagnosed me. I remember still not known what was going on. I rode into her office in my wheelchair. And she was there at the copy machine making copy after copy after copy and she handed me. This is like Three quarter inch thick packing papers and she said here incident in your best interest to become an expert and I hadn't even talk to her about this subject yet until I followed her in her office. And that's home tick borne illness shoe drop. So she's the one on who encouraged me to learn about the subject in in to arm myself because like you said very deep political nature so my research started there was already a pretty good research on my own Knowing how to I've always always been somebody to try to find personal truce. I did start there. It took a number of years honestly of sorting reading through the medical editor. Going back to the origins of when these things were first discovered in it was in the mid had sixty s Through the seventy s when people in the East Coast started developing symptoms. So a great deal of medical research starts done and then Action Live Dot Org which is a chemical A retired Chemical Glenn List for Pfizer. WHO's a whistle blower for the whole lime disease epidemic? I spent a lot of time researching there and like you. He said I wrote a great deal of my book through the origins. And how the disease morphed into into what it is today. So it's I guess it's about fifty years old to the time that we're talking now and I looked to readers through where I started where it was first identified the medical community and how they were dealing within I five ten fifteen twenty years that pedantic versus how it is today and there's a stark night day contrast I Tuna disease in that time period and POWs originally being thought of as a chronic chronic debilitating illness could imitate a wide variety of physical symptoms. And then as the timeline on specifically in the mid nineties it became a a more politicized issue with vaccine agenda and that translated into a pooling part different components to the testing that were specific for vaccines. It's an odd conversation but it actually. It poked holes in the testing so that the testing became more fraudulent and and difficult to interpret for the average patient and doctor. So that that's a bit of the history regarding how the disease transformed into what it is today and then the actual scientists involvement like you mentioned about a bird door for a number of pages on the the biowarfare program. Oh Graham and how. The situation through history We feel far disconnected from Rwandan world. World War Two Right now but during that time period virtually every nation on the continent was trying in to figure out what his novel ways of killing or disabling the enemy and that was one of the things that United States is is involved in where we had on the heels of the Nazis Russia Japan remember Pearl Harbor and the different things to Japan was working on while the US had that same competitive mindset when it came to biologicals logical in one of the things that they were. Fiddling list was the insect delivery of biologicals Brush in in Germany and Japan in particular they were. They were toying with Clegg and different types of malaria's and thanks to not necessarily always kill the enemy but they found that you could actually tie up. More more soldiers and servicemen and women doctors. If you could disable the enemy it would take three to five people off the field versus. He'd kill somebody and they just get buried in there. They're gone so that was willing to break. Willie Willie Bergdorf for was us. Scientists use originally from Switzerland but that was his specialty. Then I have pictures of them in the book so we know that he was doing doing it. He was in the nineteen fifties stationed at Plum Island and I think he was stationed in for Dietrich actually but Colombian and also did this type of work where they would infect they would literally inject ticks inject and feet deep mosquitoes on disease agents and they were meant for a military type of outlet in the field so Willy Bergdorf appears to be the actual beginnings of the tick borne illness outbreak which started started on the East Coast here. It's a while so I put all the arrows point to that being Ground Zero for the tick-borne Hornos as you said. This is a fight to the book of Him. Literally do. Initially we've taken with a needle you say showing this was exactly what was being looked high. Aw Yeah like I said it's wild. It's he got a pinch yourself because it feels like it's out of a science fiction novel but if you if you truly take yourself back in history to it all the nations were doing at that time period it was a fearful time you know nuclear the weapons had just been being identified Like I said we had the timing and Pearl Harbor and I remember if you look back. You'll see many families. Were trying to construct bomb shelters just on a family by family basis so as a fearful time arm on an economy makes sense that they were exploring these and he thinks that's that's a direct link. That's way these takes the AW. Aw Stall T to was Simpson's into public of coined of escape for more liberal elites released from these testing. Yes I from my research. I have not a shadow of doubt in my mind. Like you said you gotTa Pinch yourself to to to to come to that realization but like you said we have the pictures we have the there are a number of actual tool published research. tapers from Door for where he said. I'm injecting ticks with Parrilla. Which is the type that causes lime disease? I'm injecting ticks with These different for disease agents and only were they injecting the ticks wisdom was they were trying to identify. Ways of mass infection of these sex wasn't just one or two you know as hundreds thousands of farm raised just insects detailer injecting about with just one disease. Because it's it's very rarely. That patient actually just gets lime disease. It's as I live disease. It's malaria like organisms. Excuse me for BBC would. I was diagnosed with different types of recaps here. Uh that the medical system is just now fifty years later coming to acknowledge some of these. Different things Bartonella some different types of viruses that There are tropical kinda outside the beaten past of science in medicine but for them. All this cocktail to be found in these ticks which don't necessarily The the deer tick doesn't necessarily originate in that area. It's all just too weird to Out of place cannot be connected with the the biowarfare element shadow of doubt in my mind and also Chris Newby the science straighter. WHO's Sushi newest the film under our skin? She did a lot of research on the aspect in recently wrote a book in. I think now this time period. It's actually becoming more common knowledge To a degree that this is the origin of Elsa tick-borne issues Not only night states but also as spreads of becoming a worldwide ish you as well. I'm not snoop where it said that about the decline of the spirit of it from its initial clause place out and like you said these days is caught soul. But it's not outside. I saw it three hundred possibility and the other bit stuck out. Give me on my Fiat. This right in my understanding of region because there was a lot of blowing stuff in the first chapter to the book but is the current situation. Now the difficulty to tested. and not you said divorce free standardization made it almost impossible to diagnose east east view the eight the government wants to see what the long term effects all which is why not so keen to diagnose and treat people for it. If I understood listed that right I wrote about that that there's actual You have to to understand understand the disease epidemic. In how political systems handle disease epidemic. You have to almost getting in the mind of somebody that does that job. And I'm glad that you brought that point out for them when you have in because diseases can create economic and political issues Pretty quickly especially when they're emerging diseases and that's outside of the whole by lower fare system. That's just basic economics you know if you have a number of people that are disabled in a certain area it may affect the tourism can affect business so one of the things that the the CDC in also the background to CDC. It's called the epidemic intelligence service. What they do is they actually like like We saw this with the The Beginnings of AIDS epidemic is. They have it's almost a natural experiment. Airman where they like to fully understand the disease before they necessarily work on treating it effectively effectively and with the tick borne illnesses even a degree further than that. Because of the connections to the biowarfare program program where we're like I said there were fifty years deep now where it's pretty much being untreated. You know the cute are being treated with the long term effects that it's Caesar or a nonstarter and the reason for that is that natural. Show history that natural experiment enables them to pursue vaccine development which if they can pursue and identify identify a vaccine. That's the better solution because you can effectively cure the problem but so far in the past fifty years. We haven't haven't had any effective curative vaccine. So patients doctors continued to scramble for a way of actually it treating this social political economic epidemics that were in the middle of wait chicken like you said they some kind of like with the view on the weaponization bay in is some people look at sort of thing and it was a conspiracy theory lens so but I think he's h wage league knowledge that this is you know they think papers published showing that this is exactly what governments have done before where they have given people. Placebo Sri its own poll. Because they want to see how the how the treatment I'm thinking you've ignored it with this or something else speculate. Then you know that's no locking spiracy thing that's out there. In fact you're in the pipe had been released around on the fact yes The the one that you're referring turn to is to Tuskegee experiments and that was something that It was it was very on the Centers for Disease Control. It was National Institute of Health and a number of different other well-known medical organizations that were involved in this type type experiment with syphilis and it was a racially biased situations. Well we're these African American migrant workers. There were enrolled in these trials where they effectively studied the natural course of simplisafe's and the idea was that it would effectively Educate them on vaccine development so even with syphilis how it affected servicemen and women in the US army and the armed forces. They wanted to understand understand vaccine development. How'd affected the military? Because that's the number one goal in any civilized country is too I understand how disease effect the armed forces in this gives them a way to unfortunately I may. It's very sad. But like you said is documented that they followed and this wasn't just a a one year five year ten year. Your study. This was thirty four years. This went on and it would probably still be going to this day. If it wasn't for whistleblowers in news journalists who glow it up and I think when you would you know this is it makes it fall outside the realm of the possibility that if it happened once exact same thing could happen again. I think you said quite possibly people right now suffering because of the because because of the difficulties engaged diagnosed in the first place. Yes yes in like you said we've got we've got the pictures pictures. We have the published documentation of Willie Bergdorf role. We have the the cocktail of different diseases. That are you're that are inside these ticks the displacement of the actual tick species than how that's a run rampant Sushi just way.

"Hey Lauren Vogel bomb here. Ticks are vectors for all sorts of unpleasant germs notably lime disease which is the sixth most is commonly reported infectious disease in the United States according to the Centers for Disease Control and prevention decades after it was first identified. It's still often misdiagnosed. First symptoms include an expanding body rash joint pains fatigue chills and fever but could the spread of lyme disease be attributable to classify decades. It's old bioweapons program as some people claim or are ticks just as good for spreading misinformation as they are germs. The ticks as weapons issue made the headlines back in July of two thousand nineteen thanks to the US House of Representatives Chris Smith who introduced legislation directing the Department of Defense to review claims at the Pentagon research tick tick based Bio Weapons in the Mid Twentieth Century. The amendment passed Smith told the House he was inspired to do this by quote a number of books and articles suggesting that significant research had been done at US government facilities including Fort Dietrich Maryland and Plum Island New York to turn ticks and other insects into bioweapons. Smith explained during a debate on the House floor quote with lyme disease and other tick borne diseases exploding in the United States with an estimated three hundred thousand to four hundred thirty seven hundred thousand thousand new cases diagnosed each year and ten to twenty percent of all patients suffering from chronic lyme disease. Americans have a right to know whether any of this is true and have these experiments experiments caused lyme disease and other tick borne diseases to mutate and to spread congressman. Smith's legislative actions were also inspired partly by the book bitten the secret history of lyme disease and biological weapons written by Chris Newby a Stanford University Science writer who also served as senior producer on a lime disease documentary titled Under Our Skin in the book newbie points out that in nineteen fifty three the biological warfare laboratories at Fort Dietrich created a program investigating ways to to spread anti-personnel agents by arthropods insects crustaceans and Arachnids with the idea that slow acting agents wouldn't immediately incapacitate soldiers elders but rather make the area dangerous for a long period of time. We spoke with Newbie via email. She said the premise of my book is that weaponized ticks full of who knows what we're accidentally released in the region of long island sound while she notes that she was unable to prove definitively lime bacteria was used as a bioweapon uh-huh weapon quote there are plenty of shocking discoveries scientific leads to lift the veil on the mysteries surrounding tick diseases end the government's response to them. Her book says that scientists Willie Bergdorf who is credited with discovering the specific bacterium that causes lime disease was directly involved in a number of bio weapons programs but she stopped short of saying that his research was necessarily related to a lime disease weapon that was accidentally released into the wild given America's ugly history regarding unethical research. It's fair to ask whether lyme disease was inadvertently or advertently introduced into the general population after all the government conducted hundreds of germ warfare hair tests and unethical experiments on civilians in the Mid Twentieth Century and other examples of similar biological warfare do exist during World War. Two Japan Torius lease plague-infested insects to spread disease particularly in China. Some twenty thousand Chinese people died from this type of etymological warfare which was carried out primarily by the infamous unit seven thirty one but most experts say there's nothing to investigate regarding ticks in the US Today Phillip J Baker Executive Director at the American lyme Disease Foundation wrote a lengthy document debunking claims regarding lime disease bioweapons research in it. He's tablist that both lime and the ticks. What's that spread? It were prevalent in the northeast thousands of years before Europeans colonized the continent. A Baker told US via email. I think it would be a complete waste of the taxpayers money for Congress to waste. It's time investigating science fiction. His article notes that pathogens considered for bio weapons are usually ones that caused death or serious illness in a short period of time after release that does not describe the lime disease pathogen also the idea that the government tried to weaponize ticks with lime in the nineteen fifties in sixty s doesn't fit the disease timeline in an article published in the conversation. Sam Telford a professor of infectious disease and Global Health Tufts University pointed pointed out that lime wasn't even discovered until Nineteen eighty-one. That's when Willie Bergdorf I finally pinpointed spiral shaped bacteria called Spider keats which were ultimately named as the cause of Lyme Telford wrote the real nail in the coffin for the idea that lyme disease in the US was somehow accidentally released from military bioweapons research is to be found in the fact that the first American case of LYME disease turns out not to have been from old lyme Connecticut in the early Nineteen Seventies in nineteen sixty nine physician identified a case in spooner Wisconsin in a patient who had never travelled out of that area and lyme disease was found infecting people in nineteen seventy eight in northern California. How how can accidental release take place over three distant locations it couldn't telford said that growing deer populations which spread deer ticks carrying lyme reforestation particularly in the northeastern United States where most cases of Lima reported in suburbs encroaching on those forests which brings humans into close contact with ticks and confessed and wildlife are the primary reasons that line is becoming more prevalent not a top-secret bioweapons program however provided an organization. Shen wanted to weaponize ticks. It's certainly possible but it's not easy we also spoke by email with Carrie Clark a professor of epidemiology and environmental health both at the University of North Florida. He said weaponising almost any type of biological agent takes a great deal of expertise. How much expertise depends on these specific civic agent its entire ecology epidemiology including pathogenic properties infectivity pathogenicity violence and in this case it's ability to survive in in and be transmitted by Ticks Clark adds. That takes aren't an ideal choice. As a biological weapons delivery system ticks don't typically thrive in urban an environment where people are concentrated and they are slow feeders so someone might notice and remove them before they can do their job. Clark explained one would also have to rear in fact a large number of ticks and then somehow deliver them to a group of humans in a way that large numbers of people are exposed actually bitten in a short period of time dropping infected ticks from an airplane drone doesn't sound like an efficient way to incapacitate a population with a bio weapon. He noted that lyme disease isn't quick or efficient efficient at incapacitating people that wouldn't be likely to cause a large number of deaths and that it might take months to cause even serious illness. Clark further explained and even though there's an epidemic of limelight illnesses in the United States and that many may result from tick bites infections from tick bites aren't necessarily lime disease. They could be caused housed other tick borne pathogens or infectious agents encountered in our environment in other ways besides tick bites. Perhaps the takeaway is that given the seriousness it does of tick borne illnesses. The existence or non existence of a murky government conspiracy and cover up doesn't really matter as much as the fact that patients are still sick and the a disease is still spreading. What we really need says Clark is to invest significant additional funding to investigate the true causes of these illnesses and to develop better diagnostics sticks and treatments..

"All right so lyme. Connecticut something something is very old hat to you right brand known about it for years lyme old lyme and what was the third town remember no. Let's just call it a new lyme. It was not going to be so mad. They're high school football. Team is GonNa go Berserk on old lyme this year. in the nineteen seventies there were grouped children and adults in these towns in Connecticut that we're having all these weird symptoms swollen knee skin rashes headaches all this severe fatigue league and it's bad enough these days but in the early nineteen seventies doctors were definitely did not have this on the radar and we're we're very dismissive of what was going on in these towns and if it were not for the work of Judith Minch and Pauli Murray to just regular MOMS although polly Murray did work for the World Health Organization for a while they were advocates. They were patient advocates because their families were getting sick and no one would listen and then they were like someone's got to do something something's going on here and these doctors are not being any help right and it was a big deal. polly. Murray ended up writing a book. She made it sort of her. Life's work nineteen ninety-six but call the widening circle and because of sort of persistent sexism in science they were. We're largely discounted. Even though they had a list of thirty seven individuals they researched on their own contacted scientists we we just really need to shout the mouse. Pauli Murray died. I'm just about a month ago at the age of eighty five. Oh is that right yeah yeah. She was a persistent cuss as they call them up in the Yankee states. It's right so on the one hand yes from the everything. I've read in all the impressions I have. They were very much dismissed and it was very much sexist Texas and also I think because they weren't doctors but on the other hand the doctors who were being presented with these cases where like I have no idea what this is so. Let's just pretend attend. It's not real but luckily those two women in the groups that they establish they went on and they contacted Yale Medical School. They contacted acted the state and they really kind of put us on the map but they said there is a mysterious epidemic. That's going on where you have a lot of kids who suddenly have juvenile arthritis out of nowhere. What are you guys. GonNa do about it and because of their agitation this mystery made its way to the desk or I guess the microscope of a guy named Willy Bergdorf and he was at the time the world's foremost authority on what's called Rocky Mountain spotted fever. which is is another tick borne bacterial infection? I remember that when I was a kid that was a big news item it was he was working out in. Colorado and Colorado was ground zero for rocky mountain spotted fever for a while which is yeah you do not want to have that it's a really bad bacterial infection but by this time they had done thanks thanks to the Legwork done by the MOMS and the patient advocate groups in lyme Connecticut it had been pretty well established that the common thread between between all these people besides where they lived in by the way it was Chuck Lyme old lyme in East had him sorry east had them aside from the fact that they all lived in the same region was that all of them are almost all of them recalled being bitten by a tick in a lot of them had a mysterious rash right before the symptoms presented Zenit so it came to this Guy Willie Bergdorf irs microscope because they had said there's something in the ticks here that is creating this disease. He's that we haven't encountered before that's right and he had already discovered this bacterium. called how do you how how do you pronounce out spirit yet. SPIKY parakeets but Spiro keyed is a type of bacteria and that's that's the way apron they all right. Spira chat and you just made me think of the older brother. Chat and weird science now. Go make yourself one but why'd yeah yeah that Guy R.i.p what Bill Paxton Win He died a couple years ago very sad bad. Are you thinking of Bill pullman. No Bill Paxton died it was so sad because I just listened to his Marc Maron interview and he was it's like after that episode wanted nothing more than to be Bill Paxton's friend and neighbor neat. He just sounded like the best guy family man and he passed away way too early. Yeah Yeah Really I did not know about that. I saw frailty not too many weeks ago. It's still pretty good. It was the first viewing or no no no. I've seen it before but yeah great movie yeah yeah he wrote in a believe directed and starred in it yeah so good and I love a good powers. boothe casting call for it was it was unusual and surprising perfect very underrated film. where are we. We were talking about rocky mountain spotted fever Willie Bergdorf for identifying the Spiro Keat that was causing right spiral dumb dumb so you know remember number we were all smart he yes so he discovered this this parakeet and he was honored by this discovery and naming that thing after himself that's why as that interesting name. I get the impression. He didn't name it after himself. They named it after him. No I go on yeah okay but there's a big difference between him saying this thing's called the Bergdorf hurry bacteria and somebody saying we're we're going to name this. After you know I totally agree okay so Bergdorf furry or Bergdorf or he figures out what is the basis of lyme disease disease which is great. That's an enormous breakthrough. It establishes that yes it is its own thing its own disease and because it was a bacteria. I it's ASPIRA key which again it's a kind of a snake like shaped bacteria specific kind that walks like a slinky because it was a bacterial infection. The Medical Establishment Schmidt said Oh we got this here. Take some antibiotics and over you know the course of several years starting in I think the nineties is when they really asserted to say okay. We can cure lime disease especially if we catch it early on by a two four week round of antibiotics right here you go and they said case closed. Were the medical establishment. Let's go have a party for ourselves. Yeah and here's the thing like many times that can take care Arab the problem so it's not like they were just lazy and not doing their work but I think they closed the book a little too soon and a lot of people do because at that oral that round of oral antibiotics if you catch it early it can really work but and I think they say what like nine times out of ten if you catch it early then in that will that will work right there so they're so persistent with that assertion that if you find a tick on yourself in oh you live in an area where lime disease is known to thrive if you can't say how long that takes you probably just going to give you a Nevada -biotics collectively yeah and in again like you said in a lot of cases and I believe from what I've read the vast majority of cases in early the stage lyme disease that round of antibiotics should work yeah and they say that if you and this is from the American lyme Disease Foundation quote if you we live in an endemic area have symptoms consistent with early lime disease in suspect recent exposure to tick present your suspicion to your doctor so so he or she may make a more informed diagnosis so up to your doctor and say Yeah Madame Sir I would love to present my suspicions to you. Please sit down well. They're saying sort of still he's still sort of need to be your own advocate because it is so hard to diagnose still because if you're going on symptoms alone like we said there are hundreds of things that share those symptoms and lyme disease may not be the first thing they think of. That's a huge problem with lime disease. Another huge problem is that the test we use to test for lime disease doesn't actually test for the B. Bergdorf free bacteria right it tests for the antibodies that should be present in your bloodstream lead stream. If you have a bacterial infection not even specific to that one but a bacterial infection the problem is it takes days if not maybe a week or two before for your body mounts and effective immune response against this infection so if you find a tick and they give you a test say within the first couple of days. It's going to come back negative even though you very much have a Bergdorf free infection. It's GonNa come back negative because the antibodies have been created yet. The other part of the problem is even if you take a blood test that test directly for the Bergdorf Frey bacteria. It moves out of the bloodstream really easily and within several days. There's a very brief window of time where you can directly test for the BERGDORF free bacteria and find in a simple blood test yeah you can also get false positives in their advocating now for a two tiered testing for confirmation of the diagnosis so so you get that first positive test sometimes now. You'll get a different test a western blot test right. It's going to really get more specific to that antibody. Not just the general antibodies right so part of the other problem is what the reason a lot of patient activists in patient advocate groups say no doctors you're wrong. This is not good enough is that there's a sneaking suspicion. Among people who have what's called chronic lyme or post treatment met Lyme Disease Syndrome is that the round of antibiotics the two to four week round of antibiotics that seemingly cured the lime disease these symptoms that you had actually failed to fully knock out the bacteria that created this infection this created the lime disease in the first place that it just burrowed further into your body and because the medical establishment said we got it it's fine these antibiotics cured it and didn't go deeper deeper that that bacterial infection is allowed to fester and present in worse ways later yet and it's a really big deal because you know what will happen is. They'll say you're cured. We gave these antibiotics. They worked but weeks and months and even years later when people have persistent fatigue and muscle aches and headaches and you know like your knee joints hurt. They said like a brain fog can happen. These are all things that are I don't WanNa. Let's see generic but if you walk into your doctor and say I feel like I'm fuzzy and have a brain fog and I get headaches and I'm tired it's it's sort of a wide it's hard to pinpoint what's going on sure and there and they think you're cured of the lime disease so that's where some of the more dismissive at least from the lime disease community. They're saying like I have this chronic issue and they're saying but no there's no such thing as a chronic issue where they're also saying like look. We gave give you a test for lime disease in you came back negative right now. We know you had it before. We tested you came back positive. We treated with antibiotics now. We've we've tested you again and it's coming back negative. You don't have lime disease anymore so there's a huge debate whether they're the antibiotic course is not enough and the lime disease is persisting elsewhere in the body and that may be it's changed forum so that it won't show up on the tests like it should or There's there's remnants of it. I saw one one article that suggested that the cell wall from the SPYRO keet the BERGDORF respirable Kea can remain even after the thing's dead right and persistent like joint tissue and cause an immune response there which would explain this long-term arthritis is like a a post treatment lyme disease Z. Syndrome symptom or is it that it converts into an entirely different disease like an auto immune disorder. Yes some people think that it could trigger an autoimmune response and the infection's gone and this is what's happening later on is Is You have this auto immune immune response it can lead to other things like rheumatic heart disease I think we did we cover John Bear Syndrome her. Just talk about it in different episodes episodes we've talked about and I think if I remember correctly Gabbara Gabe can you. I'm pretty sure we could both be wearing the apron for for this one though we'll we'll split it up all right. I get the top half. I'm porky pig in it all right. I'm going to just cover my bits down there. but regardless of of what's happening what people know is is that they don't feel right and it's extremely frustrating to to feel the symptoms. Munson it's in years later and not be taken seriously in a doctor's office. Yes so a lot of people are saying that we we these. This course of antibiotics shouldn't be two to four weeks. It should be many any months right because you really need to get all of the the Spiro keyed out of there or else. It's going to persist in you're going to have big problems and then the medical establishment saying like just what you're talking about doesn't even exist so there's a lot of frustration like you're saying a big disconnect and this is something that is probably going to keep playing out although it seems like it may be on its way out because of the epidemic proportions lime is taking now in the.

"So these are not like laughable diseases. Oh and these are no. They're not. They're not laughable diseases. There's a lot of things that go into this in the u._s. House of representatives actually this year has called for an investigation into whether the spread of line z's had its roots in a pentagon experiment in weaponising ticks the thing about it is we know they've experimented on our populace before and we know that the scientists that were taken there from unit seven thirty one we're working on ticks and fleas and other ends so here's my question where they you said the u._s. House of representatives is looking into all of this. That's the weaponization of ticks in the form of lyme disease. There's no tie that we're aware era of in this investigation to plum island correct. No they believed that it happened at plum island the the alleged the people alleging this believe it happened aplomb mile. Yes and the houses lease seeing the to the pentagon. What did you do look into this so the approved amendment proposed by republican congressman from new jersey early chris smith and circuited defense department's inspector general to conduct a review of whether the u._s. experimented with ticks and other insects regarding uses. This is about logical weapon between the years of nineteen fifty and nineteen seventy five that scary. That's the honestly it's scary to think that they would test and mess with insects the fly like they could easily get out and they would do tiny in that they would do it so close to the mainland right you know the lime disease is is a scary thing. People make a lot of fun. I'm like oh bunch of lyme disease because it's i forget that i forget what it's referred to as but it's like what whatever it is referred to as the meaning of it is it mimics other diseases you can have lime disease and people think you have fibromyalgia reminder you can have lime disease and people think that you have parkinson's like there are so many diseases that it mimics and can manifest in different ways. It's a really scary. Everything kyle procure some lime disease for me asap. Actually you know what kyle go do that right now mhm right now. Go pick it up at the store because he's gonna come in with like sixty six so moving onto others this book bitten the secret history of lyme disease and biological weapons and its sights a swiss-born discover of the line pathogen willie bergdorf that lyme disease epidemic was a military experiment that had gone on.

She was a technology writer for apple and other Silicon Valley companies welcome to the program. Chris good to be with you. Hey, thanks for inviting me today. This is a different very important topic. How in the world did you come up with this idea forbidden? The actual book book project started I had done this documentary in line today. So I had a pretty deep background about it. And and that the film did really well, it really educated a lot of people about how serious this disease can be it's it's caused by tick bites. It's little 'Bacterial that's transmitted by tick bites and t treat it early. You know, you can get rid of it super fast. But if it it lingers it can cause permanent chronic disease, but the idea for the book came from. A friend of mine had sent me a videotape of the discover lime disease Willie Bergdorf who is in his late eighties. And he confessed that he thought the outbreak of Lyme disease which began in the the the seventies and that was caused by biological weapons. Release and. I just thought it was. Shocking because it was crazy at the time. Because of my work with the documentary and just interviewing hundreds of patients and experts there there was always something that seemed a little wrong about the disease compared to other diseases, but you know, Willie Bergdorf for he was respected scientists he had the most to lose by making that confession. Because what he was saying he lied about the discovery which was announced in eighty two. So in at the time of the interview, he would he had advanced Parkinson's. His speech wasn't clear. I mean, he mentally with it. But it just seemed like it was a really important thing to get to the bottom of for public health to know this and explain why the disease so controversy and political about how to treat it and where it came from. So at that point, I said, I I'm just curious. I just have to get to the bottom of it. And I launched into this five year investigation into the biological weapons program into Willie's life to really determine is this is this. It's credible thing. He's talking about the book primarily deals with with Willie. Of course, the scientists, and we're going to get deep into his life, and how even came up with this possibility. Now, the lime disease that we talk about that we all have known about as you mentioned you get it from a tick. That's the you know has this infectious bacteria in it. And they're supposed to be able to treat it with any -biotics. Is that the case? If you get it early in the first few weeks yet, it seems like most people can recover nicely. But the problem with the way the disease is now is a lot of people don't see the tech or they don't see. The rash that often shows up when there's a tick bite, so they just come down with the summer flu. It's just a typical flu symptoms nothing specific, and they go into their doctor and their doctor says, well, it's probably a virus. You know, come back. If you weeks, it isn't cured, she'll they misdiagnosed it. They misdiagnose it. And then sometimes like patients come in with the rash or tick, and they administer the line test. They say, well, let's take a wait and see attitude, and they ministered the test. But the test is not very reliable for lime disease in the first month. So that person might be told by the doctor always negative carry on. And then they begin months if not years I've missed misdiagnoses because they don't know the test is bad at the forty year old tests. So that's that's a complicating factor. And even when some when some people are treated with antibiotics after month or two ten.
