Congress - Force the CDC to investigate Morgellons Disease

3,073 Signatures Goal: 5,000

The undersigned citizens of the United States urgently request a U.S. government oversight hearing to determine why the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is taking so long to investigate the cause of Morgellons Disease. The CDC has admitted that it has been receiving citizen complaints of symptoms of this disease for over a decade. Letters from senators from a number of states to the CDC calling for action on this apparently infectious condition that now affects about 9000 families have resulted in NO apparent investigation thus far by the CDC. Recently, a government oversight hearing was called for to investigate complaints of contaminated pet food and determined that there was system wide failure by the FDA to protect pets from contaminated foods. We believe ill and suffering individuals are at least as important as sick pets. There were a number of pet deaths attributable to tainted pet food. At least 15 persons have died directly or indirectly after being affected by Morgellons disease and thousands more are suffering and becoming disabled. Most were misdiagnosed as being delusional by dermatologists, largely untrained in psychiatric conditions, using badly flawed inaccurate and unsupportable assertions in the literature. Scientists have identified some of the physical manifestations of this disease using dermatoscopes, microscopes, DNA analysis and chromatography. The manifestations of this disease are real, multisystemic and progressive, not delusional. However the etiologic agent has so far not matched any known human pathogen. There is no cure. Time is of the essence since one half of the 9000 people identifying themselves as ill with this disease have done so within in the past six months. This may represent an emerging epidemic. In our opinion, the CDC is failing in its obligation of \"controlling the introduction and spread of infectious diseases,\" and we, the taxpayers have a right to know why this is happening and to have the current apparent failure of the CDC addressed immediately.

    I am an American tax payer and request action now, not months or years from now. My best friend died from complications due to this disease in 2008! Why are we still waiting for help?

    I humbly ask for you, as you as the individuals who we choose to speak for the people, to be my voice against the cruelty that is occurring to those who suffer from this disease. Please put your own conclusions aside and help those who know this disease to well. although maddening, this it is not a hysterical delusion it is something as yet unknown .The lack of treatment of this disease is devastating. I encourage each and every one of you to but yourself in our position and enact action now. For those of us who are battling this, time is something we don't have. Please demand answers, we deserve them.

    Doctors need to be educated to help patients treat infestations early, especially immunosuppressed! It shouldn't be grouped into one category either! The world is globalizing, this will only become more common and it needs to be addressed now!

    This is devastating to watch our previously well balanced emotionally and physically daughter who was successful become a recluse with open lesions on her face like leprosy ... If this is from chemicals sprayed on crops than the world deserves to know do they can do whatever they can to prevent it from spreading or infecting others ... Shame shame shame in the CDC !! US Govmt no longer protects the health of Americans ... Very sad
