Congress - Force the CDC to investigate Morgellons Disease

3,033 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.

    when i went to the doctor, they didn't even examine me and perscribed permathrin which didn't work. black specks, some that look like a bird claw,keep popping out of my skin when i put oil on my skin. also tiny crystal things come out as well as fibrous bals that look like cotton. red things, blue things and green things also come out. i continually get bloody noses and hard things that look like worms are in the blood, i feel that there is no help from the medical profession and nothing seems to help, suicide is looking to be a positive option. truely a nightmare and i think my cat caught it too

    I have had this disease for over 7 years and it has been devastating. The medical community refuses to do anything at all to try and diagnose and treat the symptoms. The CDC has a moral obligation to the taxpayers to properly research the underlying pathology of what we call Morgellons.
