Potentially Deadly Fungus Expected to Spread Across the U.S.
The human race is dead.

Between the brave new bugs we're creating with the overuse of antibiotics, like MARSA, and the rocket fuel, birth control pills, atrazine, ecetera ecetera ecetera ecetera (it goes on and on and on) in our drinking water, and the lovely new tropical diseases we're inadvertantly spreading around the world; we're dead.

We're still breathing, and walking around (for now), but we're dead.

We don't need WWIII. The job's already been done. It's over.

I'm not trying to be an alarmist or anything, but that's just the way it is. Might as well face facts.

Potentially Deadly Fungus Expected to Spread Across the U.S.

April 24, 2010 by Editor

NY, NY (Apr 24) – An airborne fungus also known as the “deadly fungus” has infected more than 50 people in the Pacific Northwest.

The Killer fungus originating from Canada, has health officials in the United States stating, “there is cause for concern but, are not ready to sound the alarm.”

The fungus is capable of triggering both pneumonia and meningitis however, at this time is still considered a rare possibility. The fungus, Cryptococcus gattii is airborne and has only been detected in the Pacific Northwest.

At a news conference held Friday, Katrina Hedberg, MD, MPH, interim state epidemiologist for the Oregon Department of Health Services Public Division, stated it is also rare for persons exposed to the fungus to become ill.

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) stating incomplete data, would not comment on the exact number of deaths however, Hedberg says that ”of the 50-plus cases, around 10 of them have died.”

Researchers studying the fungus which is typically located in tropical climates, ”originates in soil and is associated with certain tree species, and becomes airborne,” have commented that infections so far have been treated with anti-fungal agents however, there is no vaccine available to treat those stricken or to help prevent others from becoming infected.

The 50 reported cases have been spread across Washington, Oregon, and California with a new strain discovered in Oregon. Unlike other common fungi that normally infect persons with weakened immune systems, Cryptococcus gattii can infect healthily people as well.

Once inhaled systems can take up to 8 months to appear which include: Severe Headache, Fever, Chills, and Shortness of Breath whereas, some infected individuals have only exhibited one of the four symptoms.

Doctors have been notified to report those symptoms in patients that have traveled to the Pacific Northwest region.

It's airborne, and grows on plant life. The spores travel on the wind just like pollen.

A Cordyceps fungus specific to humans could wipe us out.

So, probably won't be much danger in drier climates.
It's good to be open-minded, just don't let your brain fall out.

I feel that Ed (TV) is the apotheosis of a prevailing American syndrome. It used to be that someone became famous because they were special. Now people are considered special just for being famous. Fame, itself, is now a moral good in this country. It's its own virtue.

Lovely. It says it is associated with certain trees.

I was intrigued that the the article said the fungus was associated with certain trees. So I looked that up and found a study in which found the Eucalyptus tree was strongly associated with propagation of the fungus. Here is the link: (.pdf)

Is this the same bunch of murderers that never investigated the fake swine flu pandemic? never investigated the lethal vaccines? pfft, another agency to close down.

If this is real, its a bio attack.

Colloidal silver or ionic silver solution will take care of it.
