(4)First hour guest, reporter and editor of Earthfiles.com(1), Linda Moulton Howe presented updates on cattle mutilations and Morgellons syndrome. In April, a rancher from Lamar, CO found a mutilated cow that had been in the process of giving birth to a calf, indicating that the incident happened rapidly, she reported. Also, there were no signs of struggle as the grass in the area was untouched.
Linda announced that the first epidemiological study of the mysterious Morgellons disease is underway.(5)The ailment is associated with intense itching and lesions that have strange fibers emerging from them (she sent us two photomicrographs(2) of the types of fibers that have been associated with the syndrome). About half the people who have Morgellons also test positive for Lyme disease, and there is also a correlation with those who've lived in flooded areas that had mold problems, she noted.
