It’s not your dog or Lyme vaccine you should
worry about. Lyme disease infects humans, and the relocation of the Plum Island biological research center affects YOU.

Lyme disease infections are uncommon in naturally exposed dogs
but pharmaceutical hype turned it into a gold mine as evidenced by one vaccine company accusing
another of releasing a Lyme vaccine “before there had been a
case of Lyme reported in the canine.” That published
comment would be dismissed as sour grapes unless one understands
the purpose of the Plum Island biotech center.
The August 6, 2002 Journal of Degenerative Diseases revealed  The
former War Dept. research lab known as Plum Island, currently an
“animal research lab,” as the source of Lyme Disease,
disease contains a mycoplasma which is the “same pathogen (mycoplasma
fermentens) found in Gulf War Illness, Fibromyalgia and
Chronic Fatigue patients.”  a university-based effort
to discourage doctors from diagnosis and treatment for chronic
Lyme Disease and  to thwart insurance coverage for extended
antibiotic therapy, and finally  that the most Lyme-endemic
area in the country had only a handful of doctors who would
treat chronic Lyme disease patients.
Plum Island sits in Long Island Sound, one end pointing toward
the Connecticut coast and the other toward Long Island's North
Fork. By ferry, it is over an hour from either shore. An old
lighthouse seems to invite tourists but no outsiders are allowed
on the secured facility.
nefarious history of Plum Island began after World War II
when Erich Traub, a German biological warfare expert joined the
team. Our government learned of the German penchant for
bio-weapons technology through defectors. Significantly, Traub
had operated a germ warfare lab on an island in the Baltic Sea.
the U.S. Army knew nothing about migratory patterns or, as is
more logical, Army researchers knew exactly what they were
doing. Plum Island is on the Atlantic flyway that runs from the
Florida coast up the eastern seaboard to Greenland. A million
birds rest on the island before flying on to the Connecticut
River estuaries in Lyme. It is possible but doubtful that the
Army also overlooked the fact that deer regularly swim between
the island and the mainland. In fact, Plum Island researchers
believe the deer and birds were recognized as vehicles for
Plum Island's biological research ramped up with or without
regard for the collateral damage that followed. Yankee Magazine,
under the Freedom of Information Act, revealed Plum Island's
work included “virus outbreaks, biological meltdowns, infected
workers, contaminated raw waste flushed into the Sound ... and
experimental tick colonies, bred for research on vector-borne
Whether or not
infected ticks were deliberately released into surrounding
communities is pure speculation but most certainly, genetically engineered
vector ticks from Plum Island infected the human population.

Lyme vaccine was then created - and why the vaccine was withdrawn from
HISTORY OF LYME DISEASE
disease first appeared in 1970 in the small town of Lyme, CT
from which it gets its name. In 1975 Dr. Allen Steere became
the first to diagnose, treat, and characterize Lyme disease
after a mysterious outbreak of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis
in and around Lyme, Connecticut.
the Connecticut department of health reported that “Lyme
arthritis” was transmitted by the Ixodes scapularis
(black-legged) tick. In 1982 the etiologic agent of Lyme
disease was conclusively identified as spirochetes belonging to
the genus Borrelia burgdorferi residing in ticks. The
Arthritis Foundation released warning brochures. By 1987 Lyme
disease was designated a reportable disease. Federal
funding for Lyme disease surveillance and research was
established in 1991 and the first Lyme disease vaccine was
released in 1997.
Lyme disease became laboratory reportable when a study to
determine the efficacy of the vaccine was initiated.
Four years later, the CT Department of HHS shows the
manufacturer withdrew the vaccine from the market and the Lyme
vaccine efficacy study ended. The CDC states the vaccine “was
discontinued by the manufacturer in 2002, citing low demand.
People who were previously vaccinated with the LD vaccine are no
Canine Lyme vaccine is however
in demand, pushed by the pharmaceutical industry. As the
disease is rare in the canine but does infect humans (if
properly diagnosed), this is puzzling. Either Lyme vaccines
work or they do not. The stated reason for withdrawing the
human Lyme vaccine should be weighed against this medical fact;
Lyme disease is the most prevalent human tick-borne
illness in the United States.

 In 1897,
the War Department owned Plum Island, known then as Fort Terry.
In 1954 the Army officially transferred Fort Terry over to the
USDA to be used as an animal disease laboratory. This coincided
with the Plum Island facility request for $75 million dollars to
“upgrade the facility to a bio-level 4 status for the express
purpose of reinstating biowarfare research.”
Army records show “60% of chronic Lyme patients are co-infected
with several strains of mycoplasma, the most common one being "mycoplasma
fermentens" which was patented in 1993 by the U.S. Army and army
pathologist Dr. Lo.” Lo, Shyh-Ching-Pathogenic
mycoplasma-U.S. Patent 5,242,820 issued Sept. 7, 1993. Many
Lyme disease and Gulf war patients are infected with the
genetically engineered organism (mycoplasma fermentens) thus
Lyme and Gulf War disease symptoms are almost identical.
Doxycycline is the drug of choice for both diseases.
Quoting one unclassified report, “Yale University contends that
3 to 4 weeks of antibiotics is sufficient treatment protocol.
If a patient is still sick after 31 days of treatment for Lyme
disease, Yale converts diagnosis to that of an autoimmune
problem, specifically “Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome,
depression or "antibiotic seeking behavior".
Regarding insurance costs, another report points out that denial
of long term antibiotic treatment and/or insurance coverage is
illogical because “patients who are refused antibiotics and are
told they have an autoimmune disease … go from doctor to doctor
and many end up receiving almost every medical test known to
man, including MRIs, X-Rays, tilt table tests, Spect Scans, and
antidepressant medications...” the cost of which become
Dr. Joseph Burrascano became nationally known for his research
on Lyme disease and for his 1993 testimony before a Senate
Committee Hearing on Lyme disease. Possibly referring to Yale,
he described “a core group of university-based Lyme Disease
researchers whose opinions carry a great deal of weight” and who
“act unscientifically and unethically” adhering to “outdated,
self-serving views”. Dr. Burrascano continued “They exert
strong ethically questionable influence on medical journals,
which enables them to publish and promote articles that are
his career, Dr. Burrascano also said "Following the lead of this
group of physicians, a few state health departments have begun
to investigate, in a very threatening way, physicians who have
more open minded views on Lyme Disease diagnoses and treatment
than they do. Indeed, I must confess that I feel I am taking a
large risk here today by
publically stating these views, for
fear that I may suffer some negative repercussions, despite the
that many hundreds of physicians all over the
with what I am saying here. Because of this bias by this inner
circle, Lyme Disease is both under diagnosed and under treated,
to the great detriment of many of our fellow citizens."
He characterized Lyme as a “political disease" and indeed, he
was made an example, charged with professional misconduct. It
took seven years before he was finally exonerated and during
that long ordeal, Dr. Burrascano’s case was watched
surreptitiously but carefully by the medical community. It is
therefore no surprise that most physicians resort to referrals
or differential diagnosis when patients present with red-flag
illnesses such as Chronic Fatigue syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Gulf
war Illness - and Lyme disease.
