Christina Segundo started this petition to CDC Center for Disease Control CDC (Center for Disease Control) and

More then 12,000 registered sufferers are being turned away for medical care. We are suffering and in pain and cant get any help anywhere because it is not registered as a disease. The worst is that small children.. newborns are getting this disease.. No research has been done since 2008 ... GET ON THE BALL CDC

 

The undersigned citizens of the United States urgently request a U.S.
government oversight hearing to determine why the Centers for Disease
Control (CDC) is taking so long to investigate the cause of Morgellons
Disease. The CDC has admitted that it has been receiving citizen
complaints of symptoms of this disease for over a decade. Letters from
senators from a number of states to the CDC calling for action on this
apparently infectious condition that now affects about 9000 families
have resulted in NO apparent investigation thus far by the CDC.
Recently, a government oversight hearing was called for to investigate
complaints of contaminated pet food and determined that there was system
wide failure by the FDA to protect pets from contaminated foods. We
believe ill and suffering individuals are at least as important as sick
pets. There were a number of pet deaths attributable to tainted pet
food. At least 15 persons have died directly or indirectly after being
affected by Morgellons disease and thousands more are suffering and
becoming disabled.
Most were misdiagnosed as being delusional by dermatologists, largely
untrained in psychiatric conditions, using badly flawed inaccurate and
unsupportable assertions in the literature. Scientists have identified
some of the physical manifestations of this disease using dermatoscopes,
microscopes, DNA analysis and chromatography. The manifestations of
this disease are real, multisystemic and progressive, not delusional.
However the etiologic agent has so far not matched any known human
pathogen. There is no cure. Time is of the essence since one half of
the 9000 people identifying themselves as ill with this disease have
done so within in the past six months. This may represent an emerging
epidemic. In our opinion, the CDC is failing in its obligation of
\"controlling the introduction and spread of infectious diseases,\" and
we, the taxpayers have a right to know why this is happening and to have
the current apparent failure of the CDC addressed immediately.
