SHOCKING: Did Lyme Disease Start Off As A Bioweapon?

In a shocking twist, it seems that Lyme Disease, which hampers the lives of millions of Americans, may have originated at the Pentagon as they searched for a new biological weapon.

Rep. Chris Smith, who represents Lakewood introduced an amendment ordering the Defense Department’s Inspector General to look into whether the Pentagon experimented using ticks and other insects from 1950 to 1975.

Rep. Smith, who is the founding co-chair of the House Lyme Disease Caucus, said that he pushed for this amendment after reading a book claiming that military bioweapon experts “stuffed ticks with pathogens to cause severe disability, disease and even death to potential enemies.”

Arguing on the House floor for the passage of the amendment, Smith said “For years, books and articles have been written suggesting that significant research had been done at US government facilities, including Fort Detrick and Plum Island, to turn ticks and other insects into bioweapons.”

The amendment orders the Inspector General to release a report stating whether the alleged experiments went awry and the ticks were released into the public, causing the massive amounts of Lyme disease cases in the US. “I believe Americans have a right to know whether any of this is true,” said Smith.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, some 30,000 Americans are diagnosed with Lyme disease each year. The disease causes fatigue, flu-like symptoms and a red bulls-eye rash around the area of infection. If left untreated, Lyme disease can cause severe symptoms, including arthritis and facial paralysis.

  1. What idiocy is this? Lyme disease is well documented in the medical literature going back to the late 1800’s.

    Then I remembered Mark Twain’s famous line about members of Congress and all is explained.

  2. Looking at the story of Migdal Baval, we should realize how or ability to create, that same ability which diffrentiates us as a species, has the potential to be our downfall. This gift must be understood for its intended purpose, enriching mankind while assiting in a greater understanding of our Creator.
    There will be a day when we will know who is who and what is what. now its a blur

  3. The government is responsible for this! And worse, a 1350’s document was found saying men in strange silver flashing pods were seen right before the bubonic plague fleas attacked. It’s all a conspiracy!

    Seriously, let’s accept that sometimes diseases are part of nature, and sometimes they are even sent from G-d. We don’t need to blame the government over every crackpot theory.
