Year 3, Day 1. That is better than saying Day 732. Some would just say it is futile doing a countdown to the day pollution gets us all. People have been sweeping it all under the rug and someday it will hit the roof. SNAFU was an acronym coined for such things, and we bide our time in a SNAFU election cycle determining the best way to keep it all hidden from people. We all eat weed killer laced food under a canopy of sprayed ozone replacement waiting for molten nukes to make it all uninhabitable. There is no other track to divert the train from the wreck. It wont be a dramatic as Tom Lehrer, likely.
Apple leaves, and the tree bark too, can help you as much as any medicine will. For anything. I’m not lying. You will see. Try them. I didn’t put all those nematodes and biofilm there. The apple leaves don’t either. It is either that or at present, you and your worms will All Go Together When You Go. Eventually, the worms will make it painful. If they cause endocarditis or a heart attack, it may be more rapid at least. If you think you have it bad, consider the fate of all your poor lil’ worms living in you for their entire lives. They are little animals too.
Well, it surely sucks to be them when the apple leaves evict them too. It is either them or you. Sad to say, but true if you are a worm lover. It’s natural after all. You get bit by bugs with worm parasite complexes in them, and die from it, naturally. To put it6 in more modern terms, worms have hacked our systems since Gen. 3 in The Bible, and likely before that because they are in most vertebrate wildlife too, until they start eating apple leaves anyway. Medicine feels that if it is borrelia, there isn’t much that can be done, but tbey do not know about apple leaves. Instead, they are just rediscovering anthelmintics again to try and get the same result. Better to let the patient deal with the toxic die of than to see exactly what is happening when apple leaves force the nematodes out alive. Doctors went to school to earn that right. Otherwise, I figured they’ll go broke when apple leaves are better than the equivalent of blind carpet bombing.
I have a couple years testing under my belt and know the effects and side effects now. Then I look at the alternatives. Antibiotics are not recommended for long term because they kill all biotics, even the ones your body needs to function. Anthelmintics kill the worms and can cause a fatal herx reaction. The list goes on. Nothing compares to biotic friendly apple leaves that I know of. Those worms that everybody has missed hate apple leaves. Doctors side with the worms that keep them in business. Well, that’s bidness, I guess. If you enjoy being live worm and doctor food, you won’t like apple leaves either. That seems to be the honest take away.
If doctors don’t know about worms, consider that everybody there is riddled with the things in their hospitals and waiting rooms. They just don’t know. Pollution of the environment is so bad now it is a total blackout on the news, and everybody is misdirected by a meaningless election in the US, to be followed by another one somewhere else. People are blinded to all of that. It is a mandatory reshuffling of the deck chairs on the Titanic, post iceberg. What can you do though? I think that is the general idea. They want to avoid a survivalist shoot out. You could look it up, but nobody is looking. They don’t want to know while they plan their escape to Canada where their guns go a long way. It’s a hedge against meaningless for all sides. The fire has to be better than the frying pan.
Mon, Aug 1, 2016 – 3rd Leading Cause
Still going on Year 3 , Day 2. Waiting for updates on science for other ways, if any, to monitor nematodes, and cringing waiting for Zika to go viral from Rio. If it is like other mosquito borne chronic diseases, there is likely a nematode involved, but you won’t hear that anywhere, because they are virtually unknown outside of human autopsies, unless they take apple leaves. Then surprise, what are all these things?
Instead, I wonder if in millenia when if some race comes across the intact lunar landing sites, then come across a highly radiated and desolate Earth, what will they think happened? At least I lived in interesting times, and was able to solve a large piece of an age old puzzle nobody else could solve for all history. It will all be moot post Fukushima. By then all the other reactors will have gone super critical in blackouts, cooling system unmaintained as well. It will be like the book On The Beach, without a bang up ending beginning though. It doesn’t seem to cut it to say that’s life, because it’s really the end of life. If only apple leaves were discovered earlier, perhaps the failure of mankind as a species would have been avoided.
Medical error is the third leading cause of death. That’s low after you find out what apple leaves do, and realize medicine knows nothing about it. It is also in the US where the system was vetted, and not in Canada where the subjects make their own report cards. Both systems are snake oil salesmen not interested in cures. It rapidly becomes obvious when you take apple leaves and the worms start coming up all over the place. Those are the worms of chronic disease and biofilm, yet they don’t want to know. They have a pharmaceutical for that to leave you partially satiated until the meltdowns and UV-b get us all, like a band aid over a dagger. Of course, that is if their system doesn’t make a mistake, which they do with alarming frequency.
Talk to a healthcare professional about it, and it is like asking a red handed caught criminal to try their own case. They are all blissfully ignorant of that fact. There are all sorts of internal mechanisms the rank and file know nothing about. The patient failed the lethally wrong treatment. They phone you up in the middle of the night to tell you how they never see anything about that.
Tues, Aug 2, 2016 – Adding It All Up
What can you do? Avoid hospitals. If you can’t, I hope they get the cast on the right limb or accidentally remove a kidney. I would rather take apple leaves. Less risky. A gram of that cure is better than pounds of their ointments and pills. Understandably, they don’t like something that makes them nothing, other than making it look like a sham.
I have gone over how veterinarians have known something was up since Dr Evans in 1880. 136 years ago. There was an update in 1952 with Innes and Shoho, 64 years ago. This year it was Dr A B MacDonald. Mankind likely hasn’t got the better part of a century to wait let alone a decade. Maybe they will find the missing reactor cores by 2020 in Tokyo. Then what? Well, hindsight is 2020 as they say. If you are going to ignore a nuclear catastrophe, better to have it half a world away.
This week, the Games will start. Apparently, you can’t use the “O” word to describe them. Official sponsors have to be protected. How about The RiOMG instead? Olympian Microcephaly Gathering. Works for me. Maybe that is part of the deal over Zalazala Jazeera. At this point, I guess it does make a difference whether Grandma or Grandpa have their finger on the button. It’ll blow right through that rock ceiling, or obsidian canopy. Likely obsidian floor too. There’ll be plenty of methane to go around then. They seem to be leaving enough clues in plain view to let us all know, and pore over the emails on Wikileaks. It will be an exercise in Edutainment masquerading as an election. Plenty of blame to go around.
Explains a lot, but can you explain a little less? I don’t know. Nematodes on top of it all. I remember when Fukushima was current, and some people suggested actually hitting it with a nuclear airstrike. At least there would be no arguing it after that. Here we are nearly 5.5 years later and it has slipped under the news radar to the back pages. It hides everywhere like nematode parasites.
Omission is what got the world to this point. When engineers protested that Fukushima and boiling water reactors were risky, they were hushed and omitted. When Einstein protested the Manhattan Project behind closed doors, he was hushed and omitted. Zika now in 41 states, but 6 months ago it was hushed and omitted. Anything about aerial spray was hushed and omitted. Mud islands were reported to be common. Happens all the time I guess. Can’t find another, but ignore that one. If you want to bury something in speculation, just answer to it with no comment. Uninformed speculation will take over to dilute it. Of course they say something Malthusian like that just won’t happen. Was it Arne Gundersen who pointed out that one in a million year nuclear accidents like a meltdown have happened every decade for 70 years now? We’re 7 million years ahead of time. When they can’t find the meltdown, they say it is a partial meltdown, like being partially pregnant. Not omitting doesn’t help much either. Ironically, things are going well in the middle of all this. If anything changes, I take it they have pills for that.
Warren Buffett wants to compare tax returns with politicians. That would be entertainment. Carry on. If it smells, it sells. If it bleeds, it doesn’t lead any more. We’re all off to Rio. They say don’t go to Miami even. Canada’s mosquitoes still have West Nile, but they haven’t found Zika yet. They aren’t looking anyway, because that is the Canadian plan. They will raise the flag in Rio this afternoon/evening as the team arrives for the next big news story. Fort McMurray has floods now and Saskatchewan too. A cold front whipped through over the long weekend causing large thunderstorms and tornadoes. It is normal weather for there this time of year, but people notice that it seems more Biblical this year, bracing for possible locusts. Lots of First World problems at airports when people get bumped off flights. Shame those airlines.
Through it all, the little bugs remain. It’s Canada, after all. Swamps and bugs up there in the north. There are no bugs in our imaginary First World the news describes. We nuked them all long ago. Good luck to the import vectors when they’re bumped off of their flights. It is said that the news is the first (world) draft of history, but with so much omission, will there ever be a final draft? Who will read it? It doesn’t matter when the point is to evade anarchy in a normally abnormal world. It seems to me that the point is to make us think it is pointless. They do a good job too with escapism like sports and politics.
What is the allure of music? It is escapism too. I admired Led Zeppelin in a world preoccupied by The Beatles. The news called them “The Led Zeppelin.” Of course the old Beatles were totally square to our dirigible shaped world. They were all dazed and confused by our world of sex, drugs, and rock and roll. They grew mutton chops and wore ridiculously wide ties to compensate. It was still us and them though. They never quite got it why painting skinny on fat didn’t work. Yesterday, all their troubles seemed so far away while the kids were getting schooling, I’m not fooling. The folks were left behind at the moon while we sent a robot to Mars. Now we are the square old fools.
Is that human nature, or is it really infused by peer pressure? Always set the bar higher. More bigger weapons. Faster and farther. At all consequences. Mutually assured destruction. It is mad, and we all know that. It was also the expectation in our self imposed growth dependant system. Thomas Malthus predicted it in 1779, yet was derided as we made sure it came true in different ways other than agriculture, such as the Industrial Revolution playing out. In the 18th century, they could not know how it all would wind up, and even presently, we have trouble conceiving what will happen. Currency was the link to food exchanged for other goods and services to make us lose our minds when a German Goldsmith discovered the allure of the promise alone was more than enough. We jumped on a treadmill of obsolescence to wind up past a point of no return. Like yeast, we stretched ourselves past the limit. In 2020, most will realize that bell can no longer be un-rung.
There is a divine irony in the year 2020 by name. We have to live the fatal mistake to see the error of our ways. There is a pestilent Malthusian check this week in Brazil. It will test the limits of apple leaves until they can no longer counter vector illness or environmental poison.
Weds, Aug 3, 2016 – War On Bugs
Microsoft tried with “Tay.” IBM has “Watson.” The deal is these AI apps are supposed to emulate people to fill a yearning desire for interaction. IBM uses the AI to scan datasets, so somebody fed it The Urban Dictionary with disastrous or spectacular results. People found they could make Tay offensive, and exploited that loophole to a state of meltdown on a testy Twitter-verse. At least it knows how to push your buttons. In the future, eventually the competing bots will all chat with each other unless a Turing test screens that out. Like mankind, a bug will find it’s way into the machine, virtual or otherwise, and by proxy even, like a nematode bug within a bug.
You may wonder how nematodes found their way into bugs. I guess it was natural selection from all the random species looking for a free lunch. People are the ultimate natural free lunch with a long life, perpetual supply, and room to grow. Once the disease resistance was breached, the sky was the limit for the nematodes, even all the way to the moon. Even astronauts carried them along for the ride. Nobody was or is immune. The same defence mechanics are ideal for disease to circumvent immunity until apple leaves restore a lot of that. The nematodes know relatively quickly and vacate out of self preservation, or attempted self preservation, akin to making a bullet migrate out by itself.
The financial news says banks are required to hold 13% of Tier 1 equity. What does that mean? That means they only have 13% of the money on hand when there is a run on the bank. It started out as 10% when a German goldsmith found out that was sustainable out of greed by all parties involved. He printed out gold certificates when he didn’t have enough gold to back it. Our paper currency was born, protected by a biofilm equivalent of bullets and vaults to keep it out of sight. It was understood that to protect it, stealth was necessary. Along with it, the facts could also be hidden. The biggest fact was they only held a tenth of it. Canadian banks only hold an eighth of it, or 12.5%. I suspect the news rounds that off to 13%. American banks require 10% in fractional reserve banking.
Florida has yet to find one mosquito with the Zika virus. They likely won’t either, because the mosquito first has to bite an infected animal or person, then bite another person to infect them. They have also only tested 20,000 mosquitoes. On a good day, there are likely a million mosquitoes per block at least. What if the nematode larva or egg contains the virus in the mosquito? The nematode trojan horse model is likely behind lots of disease in the wild. The governor of Florida doesn’t know that yet. Most doctors don’t either because the hypothesis is too new for vector parasitic nematode illness. They ignore the lessons of apple leaves at their own peril.
Then there. is the October Surprise, a phenomenon of the regular election cycle in the United States. It is no surprise that there will be a surprise. If there isn’t one, they will make one up any way, like a fake military record, or a forged birth certificate. While people complain that it is rigged, they will rig it. It is to be expected, like the disease du jour, Ebola and Zika, or a new flu. The news about the election is too big to stop it from making news itself. The news about what really matters will be buried in the back pages if it gets any ink.
There is news on the War on Bugs. They want to introduce a GMO sterile offspring Aedes species. Then they can find out for sure if Zika gets transmitted by species other than Aedes egyptii when it fails. Parasitic nematodes have likely adapted to every species in the book, and some that haven’t been recorded yet. If it is a mosquito, they won’t care if it is a GMO mutant to hitch a ride in it. Watch how it fares at the Games first. It is disturbing to see how willing people are to try it on themselves first, straight out of the test tube, and with no way to recall it should something bad happen. Genetic modifications we already have are naturally proven over millions of years. If they wake up the dinosaur gene accidentally, whoops. It’s hard to go back to the drawing board when a dinosaur is eating it.
Keep Calm and fill in the Meme Here on the old WWII wartime poster. Gene Krantz, NASA Flight Director, pointed out that we shouldn’t make things worse by guessing. That is exactly what they are all poised to do guessing on the eve of the games. Of course there are a lot more cooks involved in that broth than an Apollo mission gone wrong, and there is no director at the helm. Let the games begin in more ways than one. The Finish line may take on a whole new darker meaning. There has to be a line of reasoning for it, but you may not like what that points to. It’s a Fog of that War on Bugs. It’s all fogged up because it should be a War on Worms, but they have no idea about that. It took them over 40 years to award the Nobel in 2015 for discovering the anti worm medicine Ivermectin when all that time they thought it was a War on Bugs, not the worm inside the Bugs. By extension, there is an additional war to be waged against endosymbionts to those worms. They will never figure that out. Nobody ever has yet other than a very few.
There is strength in numbers. Bugs obviously win in numbers and their worms even more so. People that know about it lose from weakness in lack of support for knowing. It is very hard to get heard even with corroborating evidence from esteemed doctors like Alan B MacDonald and Eva Sapi. Zika is right up the same alley in the War on bug Worms. Much is being touted about a vaccine, untested, that will go the same way as a Malaria vaccine and a Lyme Disease vaccine. Those failed and bug worm theory predicts why. Otherwise, the flu could be cured by washing your hands after you catch it. That’s an analogy for it. Giving the worms a bath or soaking them in weak (to them) antibiotics won’t help either. They are tougher than people if they can live in a bug or in the dirt, let alone inside a person. They can outlive that person too.
In the clue department, market news wonders if a Zika correction is coming? Banks have done worse for returns like World Wars. This time, a futile War on Bugs might be just what they need. They can’t even identify the Worm enemy yet, but that doesn’t matter. Nobody can identify the worm behind it all yet. Misery is great advertising unfortunately. People will be happy that somebody is doing anything. Look at arthritis. People spend billions on the pain of that alone. Why would they want to stop it? I tried to stop my pain and finally succeeded with app0le leaves. The vectored nematode discovery was just a kicker leading to a deeper understanding of the chronic mechanism of the disease. It isn’t being cynical. It is being realistic.
DDT was supposed to end malaria. It wound up killing birds including eagles and the peregrin falcon to the point where it threatened extinction, and it was banned. On top of that, it was found to be carcinogenic. Vector control is still an ongoing concern. Apple leaves control the nematodes passed on by those vectors. Vectors also pass other pathogens, but the most chronic one is the nematode itself, biofilming and protecting otherwise minor viral agents and others. Reading the Wiki on DDT, you can tell the controversy of it being a double edged sword, and vectors can soon develop resistance mechanisms. There are other mechanisms to control mosquito vector pressure. You can be sure that is all being employed in Brazil now. The War on Vectors is a fancy name for the overarching ally to the War on Bugs. Bugs are one type of vector you can discover from apple leaves. They link arthritis to Yellow Jackets for me as they smoked out the long lived nematodes in that species.
Thurs, Aug 4, 2016 – Pig Pharma
The War on Bugs has a conflict of interest with the War on Drugs of the pharmaceutical variety. Apple leaves are a War on Pharma, replacing the need and eliminating the root cause nematode in some cases. Apple leaves also seem to be acaricidal, making your blood a pecticide in some cases. If the vector has a nematode, it may kill the vector from the nematode coming out. Of course there has to be more work done on that, but the trouble is that pharmaceutical conflict of interest. An analogy would be the war in Syria where allies are called terrorists by the other side. It has the potential to pit patients against doctors allied or joined at the hip with the pharmaceutical terrorists. If apple leaves work for you, good, but doctors may protest the medical cash cow being nuked as a casualty of the War on Bugs.
This isn’t the first time. Bacteriophage also suffered from a profitable, scalable, rollout of antibiotics. Now most diseases are antibiotic resistant. The default is to promote what makes money while alternatives are ignored. Apple leaves are like a phage that scares the dickens out of nematodes and pharma alike. Neither need or want something that reduces the effective dose of pharmaceuticals, or eliminates the need for them. There you have trouble. Apple leaves are not only a competitor but a huge adversary to the entire pharmaceutical industry in the monied Western world.
Insurance companies on the other hand would love being allied with apple leaves. Who will win that one? If you take apple leaves, it has the potential to lower the risk of insurance companies dramatically. In government health care systems, it stands to multiply their efficiency by magnitudes. Definitely worth looking into. A capsule of apple leaves a day can keep the doctor away. Take it with raw spinach to bust up the biofilm faster, but I tried pectin enzyme with apple leaves too. Biofilm is made out of pectin/polysaccharides, among other things. An interesting discovery was that eating raw baby spinach in concert with apple leaves seems to do a similar process.
The take away is that even the promise shown by apple leaves raises a paradox with the status quo of Western medicine. To be altruistic medically, they could be the thing that medicine has always been searching for, the Holy Grail. The way things actually are, they would flip over the tables of the money changers in the medical temple. We all know where that lead before, to Romans, nails, and lumber. The Judeo-Roman medical system we have built is not really receptive to even a threat of competition while they claim they have been searching for it all along. If such a Saviour really came along, changing water into wine, and healing the lepers, they’ll show their true colours. Physician, don’t bother healing thyself if you can really do it. We were just kidding. Now stroll off that pond and move along. Nothing to see here.
Now that medical error is the third leading cause of death, if you don’t have a heart attack or cancer because you were made immune from taking apple leaves, medical error will be what gets you eventually. They cut out kidneys, cut off legs, or do other things like administering the wrong medication, all by accident. Then they cover it up internally, and continue being pharmaceutical money changers in the temples of medicine. Playing that out, if they become the sole detractors of the likes of apple leaves, the vectors will get them all. Isn’t the karma of that funny, in a peculiar way? Well, you just have to hope that apple leaves aren’t too good. By simply eliminating lots of nematodes, they seem pretty good, so there is an element of worry in that way. It will take a long time to prove they really are too good. It also makes one wonder if similar species like pear and quince could also be researched for the properties of bark and leaves? Perhaps they already have been, but if they showed too much promise, like bacteriophage, the funding would likely get cut too. The fact that the potential can exist and has existed historically tells you that something is wrong with the way the medical system is structured here.
Doctors know of these troubles with the modern Hippocratic Oath. “I will apply, for the benefit of the sick, all measures which are required, avoiding those twin traps of overtreatment and therapeutic nihilism.” Yet how can they in our system when that lurks on the pharmaceutical side? It is the definition of therapeutic nihlism, ignoring viable alternatives. The manufacturer recommends overtreatment too. The poor doctors are shackled to pharmaceuticals now as it is, and they set the path doctors must follow. It has been known since the 1960’s when that modern oath was penned at least. On the other hand, being on the patient side is hard too knowing all of that. You learn that doctors are forced to default to the older technology also caught in a paradox borne of public health care paying their bills. The administration collars them like management tends to. There is yet another existential threat on the pile we are already soaking in.
I don’t know what is worse, knowing or not knowing. Ignorance is bliss, but can speed up your blissful demise. Now that I have removed some ignorance, at least it demanded answers to a lot of questions I never knew about, and that really have no answers. A paradox isn’t a couple doctors, for one. What is the plural form of paradox? Wiki says paradoxes. I wonder what IBM Watson would think of all this blog. Would it blow a fuse?
Fri, Aug 5, 2016 – Why a Worm?
Why do I think it is a worm from a vector? Looking at lots of microscope pictures of borrelia from Dr Alan MacDonald, there was an ocurrence that he called “string of pearls” borrelia that looked like the silhouette of a nematode. Next, he found worm endosymbiont borrelia, confirming it. I was looking for something to match what happens when eating apple leaves, and something was getting smoked out at old bug stings and bites. I did not know about the veterinary connection to Surra and other forms of cerebrospinal nematodiasis until that was confirmed recently this year. Earlier, Eva Haughie told me of Dr. Sapi’s work finding filarial nematodes in ticks. Dr Burgdorfer also initially found nematodes in ticks. It is also known that insects of many kinds can host nematodes, and one insect control strategy is to intentionally infect them with nematode parasites that kill them. That comes up in searches for nematode parasites on youtube.
Vector endosymbiont nematodes are common. Nematode endosymbiont borrelia may also be more common than suspected like a package within a package. Nature it appears can nest pathogens inside nematodes inside insects. This easily beats medicine that clings to the outdated Pasteur’s Postulate model of one pathogen to one disease. Nemtode endosymbiont borrelia explains chronic Lyme Disease with a chronic animal versus a suspected mystery persister cell. Apple leaves force that nematode animal to leave from the bug bite where it has camped out since getting inside the host from the bug, and decades after the fact. The nematodes can be as long lived as the host, if not more so. There are many unknown species of nematode that beg research yet don’t get it due to their small size and/or stealthy nature. None of the nematodes apple leaf smoked out are really known. From veterinary science you can suspect setaria digitata or similar veterinary identified species known to be neural parasites.
Sat, Aug 6, 2016 – The Age of Nematodes
The Age of Viruses is a documentary that unintentionally describes the whole problem. Medicine blows all their resources searching for that single pathogen when it is a nematode with endosymbiont borrelia and several pathogens. When you watch that, replace every occurrence of Virus with Nematode and you see the truth, and the trouble. It describes what you see with apple leaves.
Virus people use the word Reservoir to describe Vectors full of nematode larvae and eggs. They miss the forest by focussing on the individual trees with electron microscopy and x-ray diffraction. The stealthy nematode behind it all gets missed even though it exceeds their entire field of view. If WHO resources are stretched to the limit by viruses, you can see the trouble in an Age of Nematodes they missed completely.
It explains why spectacular results are achieved with anthelmintic medicines where it is not expected, such as is the case in glioblastomas. It is hard to find nematodes though when the cerebrospinal lymphatic system is still a new discovery, and nematodes have only been found in autopsy sources of CSF so far. Filarial nematodes gravitate to the lymphatic system in general, and it stands to reason that would be the nature of like minded diseases of nematodes. Spinal taps may miss them randomly. MRN scans may show it, but the technology is rare in these parts.
Apple leaves show this cheaply, but the hunt using technology is woefully misunderstood and underutilized trying to find out what apple leaves show easily. Research money goes to identify viral solutions, with a quid pro quo agreement to develop a pill. Nematodes don’t attract any attention now that the Age of Nematodes is in its infancy as a dumpster baby adrift in a sea of bathwater. The implied number of vectors is overwhelming. Such is the case with Zika virus where it could be really a biofilming nematode illness with an unknown worm beating treatment on top of the virus. That makes the virus vaccine approach to treatment fail like it did with Lyme Disease. You would have to get rid of all nematodes first.
Keeping score, nematode endosymbiont illnesses are the most successful in the battle against humans and animals. They would account for the top chronic diseases by association with borrelia alone, borrelia acting as an indicator that a nematode is present. This mechanism is just starting to be recognized in humans. Veterinarians have already discovered it. Then there is neurocysticercosis, be it from uncooked pork or a vector. That is a possible exclusive nematode illness from the worm alone. It isn’t only the nematode itself though when endosymbiont bacteria are involved as well. Many people are asymptomatic until that fateful day when the damage is already done. The more crafty worms let their endosymbionts do the gathering of nutrients, able to migrate many places where the worms can’t themselves. Pay no attention to the worm behind the curtain in this Oz of disease. On the contrary, we have to start paying attention and get to work on it to determine how it protects other pathogens like spirochaetes.
It all begs another analogy. Currently, the analogy is like getting hit by a bus. Medical research has been working hard on determining the exact composition of paint on the bus’s bumper. Well, that is kind of like it, but not really. The major similarity is that they completely missed the root cause over thinking the problem on too small of a scale. On the other hand, blaming it all on nematodes in general is like shutting down the entire public transit system or banning pedestrians crossing the street. There has to be a right sized solution there somewhere, like a radar based collision avoidance braking system. It will take time, and at this time, many species of these nematodes are completely unknown because they hide intentionally. Until then, apple leaves clear the streets in front of buses like tear gas. Somebody has to analyse a lot of those fleeing pedestrians to get to the bottom of what makes them walk in front of buses.
OK, so it’s a weak analogy, but you kind of get the drift. I can only hope they get on the bus versus wasting time on putting their detractors in front of it. Leave that to the CDC. Something this big and new that has been missed for so long in a science that was thought to be so mature could take years for acceptance if ever. The lucky part is that veterinarians have decades of prior art riding on this, and comparisons of human thiabendazole versus albendazole treatments, and more from the mid 80’s. With the work of the Paul H Duray Fellowship out there blowing the lid off all of it now, it may get the attention it deserves. Now they have fingered neural larval migrans nematodiasis as a cause of at least a couple major diseases. The availability if historical autopsy samples made that possible when they knew what to look for. I suspect apple leaves might have showed them too after I kept at it trying to get the word out. At least it is all good for discovery of the whole unknown widespread nematodiasis phenomenon, and there will be much more to come. Apple leaves gave me a 2 year sneak preview.
