Skip to comments.Plague ‘hiding in plain sight’, warn scientists
Posted on 03/03/2018 8:41:49 AM PST by BenLurkin
David Markman, from Colorado State University who led the study, said that plague is endemic in many different parts of the world and its origins are still not well understood.
"The interesting and troubling part of plague, and part of the reason why there are so many unanswered questions, is that it is present in many different environments - from the jungle to the desert and everywhere in between.
"It's difficult to find one mechanism that unites all these different locations which explains when, where and why plague breaks out when it does," he said.
The researchers identified amoebae, bugs that live in soil and water and which are known breeding grounds for disease, as possible culprits that are protecting the plague pathogens.
Using a genetically altered strain of plague that glows bright green the scientists observed the amoebae ingesting the plague. They then saw that the plague pathogens were alive and replicating in the amoebae.
The team says their research does not mean that this process occurs naturally but is an important theory because scientists have never properly understood how plague recurs after lying dormant.
Mr Markman warned that his research had worrying implications for bioterrorism.
"Some nefarious agent or actor could easily infect an amoeba and the amoeba could be spread into the water supply or sprayed over a crop field.
"There are hundreds of other human and animal pathogens that can survive and multiply inside amoeba but throughout all humanity plague is the most deadly pathogen we have seen," he said.

IMPORT MORE 3rd WORLDERS
And that’s just the lefties out to kill Personal Liberty.
Somebody wants open ended grants.
Gee. Ahmed wants to know more? Please write a few research papers to share more?
Thank goodness we have immigrant processing centers like Ellis Island where every new arrival is checked for diseases. And any immigrant found carrying a communicable disease is turned back.
Oh, wait a minute. That doesn’t happen anymore. Never mind.
Well, it sure is much easier for people to travel these days than compared to, say, the 1800's. Just sayin', doc. Ya know?....
"The epidemic of cocoliztli from 1545 to 1548 killed an estimated 5 million to 15 million people, or up to 80% of the native population of Mexico (Figure 1). In absolute and relative terms the 1545 epidemic was one of the worst demographic catastrophes in human history, approaching even the Black Death of bubonic plague, which killed approximately 25 million in western Europe from 1347 to 1351 or about 50% of the regional population.
The cocoliztli epidemic from 1576 to 1578 cocoliztli epidemic killed an additional 2 to 2.5 million people, or about 50% of the remaining native population.
“throughout all humanity plague is the most deadly pathogen we have seen”
This is what the deep state wants.
They are very stupid.
Maybe it's just me but I've seen an unusual amount of fear-inducing stories out there lately. Yellowstone supervolcano, Wall Street unsteadiness, killer cows in California, freak weather events, and the like. If you survive all that, then the Chinese space station will fall on you and kill you!
Why? Maybe to increase the attitude of unease, to convince you that things just aren't right and a CHANGE is needed. Sound familiar? Which party calls itself the party of "change"?
This is only the beginning, the background of dissatisfaction that will be built on over the Spring and Summer, and reaching climax in October.
If you were happy and secure, you wouldn't vote for change, would you?
Just like mass shootings, the deep state will perform as ushers.
Two words freepers
Not only does it kill ALL pathogens
It also promotes cell healing and many other functions
The silver ion is plain and simple a miracle of life
You left out it also turns you blue.
Not all at once of course.
When arriving home from being out and around people, wash your hands.
Thanks BenLurkin. Good one for the weekly digest ping, because it's related to the topic linked below. :^)
Markham, shut you mouf -ping!
Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.
The purpose of the Bring Out Your Dead ping list (formerly the Ebola ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.
So far the false positive rate is 100%.
At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the Bring Out Your Dead threads will miss the beginning entirely.
*sigh* Such is life, and death...
