What Is The Morgellons Conspiracy?

Some people believe that they have a skin condition named Morgellons that results in itchy skin (as if a bug is crawling beneath the skin) and sores which have fibrous material inside them whose source cannot be explained. The general medical consensus is that this condition is a form of delusion (delusional parasitosis) on the part of the sufferers: the sores usually result from compulsive scratching on their part and any fibres found, when analyzed, are found to have originated from textiles or clothing.

The Morgellons conspiracy suggests that the fibres the sufferers find are not natural and may be ‘nano-claws’, residual scale from a parasite, synthetic (as in not man-made or potentially alien), fibreglass among a wide range of other theories. Since its identification in 2002 by a woman named Mary Leitao there have been more than 12,000 sufferers that have contacted her at the Morgellons Research Institute that she founded to study the condition.
