Osler's Web Revisited -- Did The Centers For Disease Control & National Institutes Of Health Sabotage The CFS Research Of Dr. Elaine Defreitas?
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Government Biological Weapon?
THE CONSPIRACY TO HIDE THE ORIGINS OF CFS
Within the annals of infectious diseases, there has never been a more mysterious or controversial illness than that of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
A year ago I read this very compelling book written by author Hillary Johnson, and was as equally fascinated as I was horrified as Johnson described how honest attempts made by several physicians (and a few of their fellow researchers) in which to find the genesis of CFS, were met with what can only be described as a complete stonewall by the very government agencies that are charged with investigating such illnesses. Agencies which include the Centers For Disease Control as well as the National Institutes Of Health. And the most prestigious organization within the NIH; the National Cancer Institute.
Osler's Web describes the experiences of several front line physicians who at the time were confronted with an illness more physically and psychologically debilitating than any which they'd seen before. Their patients had gone from being productive members of society to people who barely had enough energy to walk across a room. And this illness would become extremely contagious.
These physicians were as dedicated to finding the root cause of this mysterious illness as any of their peers, only to find that there was a clear conspiracy at the heart of the U.S. Federal Government, in which to prevent them from finding the genesis of an illness which they eventually were forced to label as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
A syndrome comprises a group of symptoms for which no linking pathogen has been found.
And to this day, more than two decades after a core group of researchers outside the NIH and CDC began an aggressive research program in which to determine the cause of CFS, this horrible illness remains a syndrome; its genesis still a mystery.
However, what is not mysterious is the fact that the doctors and researchers involved in attempting to map out the genetic code for CFS, were met with what can only be described as a very aggressive government conspiracy in which to prevent them from identifying the source of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
Dr. Elaine Defreitas
Of all of the people involved in attempting to unravel the origins of CFS, perhaps none (aside from its victims) was more confounded than the Wistar researcher, Elaine Defreitas. It was this brilliant young scientist who was charged with mapping out the genetic code of CFS, and the one who would end up meeting with what can only be described as tremendous adversity in her attempts to do so.
Amongst the most controversial issues here was the specialized test which Ms. Defreitas created in which to mapout the DNA code of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. A test which was so specific that it required that Defreitas' protocol be followed rigorously, yet which those at the CDC and NIH for very suspcious reasons deliberately refused to adhere to.
It was this unexplainable lack of cooperation from either federal agency which made this author suspicious that there was more to Defreitas' and her colleagues' bad luck in regard to the CDC's and NIH's inability to duplicate Defreitas' lab results, than just coincidence.
And the fact that Elaine Defreitas would be involved in a serious car accident while in the midst of her research on CFS (one which would leave her with serious enough injuries to force her into early retirement) bespeaks the type of government "intervention" that those who've stumbled onto what may become serious public relation's issues for the U.S. Federal Government, always seem to find themselves confronted with.
As such, and given the convenient timing of Ms. Defreitas' car "accident," one must wonder if this accident was in fact deliberately caused in order to neutralize this brilliant young scientist, who was likely on the cusp of mapping out the DNA code to what is now called CFIDS (the modern day acronym for CFS), which would have led to Defreitas developing a successful diagnostic test for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome; one which would have been used globally. A test which would have likely supported the belief that CFS is man-made in its origins (a biological weapon), while in turn making Defreitas and Paul Cheney wealthy.
