Kris Newby, author of "Bitten: The Secret History of Lyme Disease and Biological Weapons," discussed in an interview with "Fox & Friends Sunday" how ticks can be treated with weapons and supported an investigation into whether that would be Pentagon tried this or not feat during the Cold War.
She answered a call from the House's legislators to investigate the Pentagon to find out if it is contributing to the onset of Lyme disease currently devastating the country.
A courageous step, and I am very happy about it, because many of these experiments in the Cold War … directly to Dr. Ing. Strangelove are classified, "she said.
Newby, who works as a science journalist at Stanford University School of Medicine said that much of the government's information on this issue remains hidden, but expressed optimism now that Congress is involved
HOME PROVISIONS PROVIDE MANUFACTURE WHEN IT TURNS ED TICKS INTO BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS
Rep. Chris Smith, RN.J., heads the indictment, claiming "bioweapons specialists have stuffed ticks with pathogens to inflict severe stability, disease, and even death on potential enemies. "
" When I wrote the book, I spent five years researching it, and many documents I can not get, but with He can do his congressional power and shed some light on this crazy series of tick-borne diseases that hit the Long in the late '60s Iceland sound have emerged. "Newby said." Host Pete Hegseth asked whether the government's tipping was intentional or accidental, and she said it was difficult to know for sure.
"Well, Willie Burgdorfer, the discoverer of Lyme disease bacteria, he did not reveal all the details, but he indicated that it was not the bacterium … but another organism that was genetically modified for warfare, "Newby replied. [1
"It's not 100 percent clear, but Willie has said, 'Accidents happen.' There have been many trials and pilot programs to find the perfect combination of ticks and diseases in them. There were outdoor tests. I mean, I found a test on the Virginia coast that released over 100,000 Lone Star ticks. They are the really aggressive ticks that caused this meat allergy.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have appeared publicly and said that Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases are increasing and in urgent need of tangible "tools" to combat the increasing epidemic.
The CDC has also identified seven new tick germs found in the US, claiming that there are now a record number of tick-borne diseases, and the number of reported cases has increased from a total of 48,610 in 2016 to a total of 59,349 in 2017.
In its statement, the agency did not refer to the Pentagon's alleged attempts and said the cause of the spike was still "unclear." "Claiming a number of factors" could contribute to such an anomaly
"The spread of Lyme disease in recent decades has been associated with altered land use patterns, including re-emergence in the northeastern United States. The suburban development in these areas has increased the spread of these germs because humans, ticks, deer and ticks such as mice and chipmunks are in close contact, "reads the website.
" Changing climate patterns can affect the natural environment and long-term ecological Change relationships. Since then, vector-borne diseases Due to the strong environmental links, we assume that seasonality and location may change. We do not know what these changes will do, but we know that the climate is only one of several very important factors affecting the spread and occurrence of vector-borne diseases. "
