Genetic Frankenstein: A Link between Chronic Lyme Disease and
By Jenna Smith
Back in 1985, Dr.
Alan MacDonald stunned the medical world with a special slide show on neo-natal tissue that he had amassed over
years of autopsying stillborn babies as the pathologist at South Hampton Hospital. Using a
darkfield microscope technique to capture the images on film, Dr. MacDonald presented his shocking hypothesis to
the world in Vienna at the Second International Symposium on Lyme Disease and Related Disorders.
Instead of pictures
of swollen knees, Dr. MacDonald showed slide after slide of spirochete infected tissue from these babies who were
never able to survive outside the womb.
The hostility from
the other scientists was at that time more of direct censure than verbal assault, but few doctors could believe
what their own eyes were showing them. Lyme disease cannot be contracted in the womb, or passed
from the mother in vitro – so the old guard insisted.
His pictures of cyst
forms and other bizarre shapes and truncated strings did not look like the clear spiral shape of
Borrelia, but when Dr. MacDonald added special chemicals to the tissue, these shapes showed up in the
same way that spirochetes do - emitting a soft fluorescent glow.
This convinced Dr.
MacDonald that the Lyme spirochetes were behaving exactly like syphilis spirochetes by carefully researching
literature from the world’s top experts on syphilis. The queer shapes – hooks, rings balls and truncated strings
mixed in with a few clear spirals. This was evidence of the morphic nature of the bacteria, and
further proof for his hypothesis.
It wasn’t surprising
that Dr. MacDonald the researcher began working with Dr. Burrascano the practicing physician.
Together they became more and more convinced that Lyme disease was the mystery infection behind significant
illnesses, chief amongst them, Alzheimer’s.
Unfortunately, the hounds were unleashed and a host of doctors were run out of town by
medical professionals who followed the tenets of Dr. Steer in Boston, MA. Dr. MacDonald
eventually found the adversity too much to bear and moved to Texas where he was haunted by the unanswered questions
of his research. Specifically, was Lyme disease causing Alzheimer’s?
2006, Dr. MacDonald has returned to New York, this time to St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center in Smithtown, on
the Long Island Sound where he immediately revived his research. He began by ordering ten
Alzheimer’s brains from a brain bank to slice and study under the darkfield microscope.
What he found, is
beyond alarming. To read his actual reports click here. He found that seven
of the ten brains “…lit up like a Christmas tree.” They were loaded with a genetic Frankenstein
– DNA of the spirochetes combined with human chromosomes.
The medical term,
“transfection” is not so frightening, but the reality is devastating. It basically means that
your own body begins producing the infection. As Dr. MacDonald said, “Once it is in your DNA and
you’re churning it out yourself, you’re cooked!”
For the people who
are churning it out, it will certainly mean a constant struggle, but for those who are just beginning to get sick,
Dr. MacDonald’s work may bring a miracle.
