This is really interesting. A friend just sent me info regarding "nanobacteria", which down the line might prove to be the cause for lots of things. He is trying the treatment for artherosclerosis, but the researchers feel FM may also be a result of infection. None of the drug companies so far are interested in researching this. Some of the info I read: "Nanobacteria are extremely small, slowly growing bacteria that can be cultured from the blood of humans and mammals. When compared to regular bacteria, these Nanobacteria are 1/100 to 1/1,000 the size, allowing them to easily move around into other cells and invade/infect them. Nanobacteria have the ability to kill human tissue cells, human immune system cells and other bacteria. Nanobacterial infection can cause alteration of cellular RNA and DNA gene-expression patterns in infected cells.....this process can lead to genetic alteration, abnormal cell growth or proliferation rates. "If you have calcification deposits in your body that you were not born with, they are probably secondary to a nanobacterial infection. Some of the diseases involved with pathological calcification deposits are: Atherosclerotic Plaque, Coronary Artery Disease, Heart Plaque, Kidney Stones, Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD), Cataracts, Glaucoma, CREST, Scleroderma, Psoriasis, Eczema, Lichen planus, Liver Cysts, Breast Calcification, Prostate Calcification, Dental Plaque, Periodontal Disease, Dental Pulp Stones, Arthritis, FIBROMYALGIA, Brain Sand and some Cancers."
