Agrobacterium tumefasciens

Posted by illuminated on 14 Feb 2012 at 13:53 GMT

What studies have been done regarding Agrobacterium tumefasciens and Morgellons disease? It is a bacteria that is able to synthesize its own cellulose,and has been found in samples taken from Morgellons sufferers. This bacteria creates galls in plants,citrus for example. It constructs the hard woody gall with the cellulose it manufactures,plus it lends from its environment.With its hard fibril it invades cells,as I'm sure most of us are aware of the process of genetic engineering, and I put forward a theory that there has been a host range change and the open sores, the crusty skin imbedded with Substantial Unidentified Granular Refractile Matter,as a pathologist in Queensland referred to a Morgellons sample are a type of gall. Could this bacteria be tested for?
