7.) Simon Wessely, Gulf War Illness, and Somatoformia, the current real
As long as psychiatry is completely made up and the
entire vocabulary of the DSM is made up, it’s a free for all, right?
So, Wessely claims Gulf War
Illness Veterans are just plain cowards, basically.
The British “psychiatrist,” Simple Simon, was hired by
the U.S. Pentagon to trash Gulf War Illness veterans, while he totally knew
Yet, this is a report Wessely wrote for the Pentagon:
Role of vaccinations as risk factors for ill
health in veterans of the Gulf war: cross sectional study.
Hotopf M1, David
“Among veterans of the Gulf warthere is a specific
relation between multiple vaccinations given duringdeployment and later ill
health. Multiple vaccinations in themselves do not seem to be harmful but
combined with the “stress” of deployment they may be associated with adverse
health outcomes. These results imply that every effort should be made to
maintain routine vaccines during peacetime.”
Wessely later (see above, “Something Old, Something
New…”) main these statements about the sick veterans:
"One way of doing that is
through neuro-imaging, but we didn’t get the money to do that, so instead we
have used sophisticated neuro-psychological testing”
"Those tablets, the NAPS
tablets, it’s just not possible to study. Pesticides, we don’t find
weapons, well, we don’t think that for the British armed forces that was a
big issue. But we do think there is a relationship between a particular
pattern of protection and what happened later."
Neither of those claims are scientifically valid. “We
didn’t get the money to do real science testing so we just used the invalid
subjective nonsense tests.”
And, “We just plain can’t be bothered to look at the very things that may
cause immunosuppression on top of the hypervaccination, so we’ll just call
the veterans cowards instead. Me, Simon Wessely, calling soldiers cowards.
I know it’s hilarious but I am paid very well for this slander and libel,
plus it’s hazard pay. Probably these vets and CFIDS/ME victims I abuse
similarly would like to punch me in the face.”
Those nerve agent antidote tablets? They cause
immunosuppression, as does DEET.
(Sounds familiar, though, right? Hypervaccination in the presence of immune
suppressors like fungi?)

Pyridostigmine bromide (PYR) alters immune
function in B6C3F1 mice.
Peden-Adams MM1, Dudley
"Pyridostigmine bromide (PYR) is an anticholinesterase drug indicated for
the treatment of myasthenia gravis and neuromuscular blockade reversal. It
acts as a reversible cholinesterase inhibitor and was used as a pretreatment
for soldiers during Operation Desert Storm to protect against possible nerve
gas attacks. Since that time, PYR has been implicated as a possible
causative agent contributing to Gulf War Illness. PYR's mechanism of action
has been well-delineated with regards to its effects on the nervoussystem,
yet little is known regarding potential effects on immunological function.
To evaluate the effects of PYR on immunological function, adult female
B6C3F1 mice were gavaged daily for 14 days with PYR (0, 1, 5, 10, or
20mg/kg/day). Immune parameters assessed were lymphoproliferation, natural
killer cell activity, the SRBC-specific antibody plaque-forming cell (PFC)
response, thymus and spleen weight and cellularity, and thymic and splenic
CD4/CD8lymphocyte subpopulations. Exposure to PYR did not alter splenic and
thymus weight or splenic cellularity. However, 20 mg PYR/kg/day decreased
thymic cellularity with decreases in both CD4+/CD8+ (20 mg/kg/day) and
CD4-/CD8- (10and 20 mg/kg/day) cell types. Functional immune assays
indicated that lymphocyte proliferative responses and natural killer cell
activity were normal; whereas exposure to PYR significantly
decreased primary IgM antibody responses to a T-cell dependent antigen at
the 1, 5, 10 and 20 mg/kg treatment levels for 14 days. This
is the first study to examine the immunotoxicological effects of PYR and
demonstrate that this compound selectively suppresses humoral antibody

were observed in the percentage of splenic CD4-/CD8- and CD4+/CD8-
lymphocytes but only at the 62 mg DEET/kg/day treatment level and not in
absolute numbers of these cells types. Additionally, significant decreases
in the antibody PFC response were observed following treatment with 15.5,
31, or 62 mg DEET/kg/day. Pharmacokinetic (PK) data from the current study
indicate 95% bioavailability of the administered dose. Therefore, it is
likely that DEET exposure ranges applied in this study are comparable to
currently reported occupational usage. Together, the evidence for
immunosuppression and available PK data suggest a potential human health
risk associated with DEET in the occupational or military environments
assuming similar sensitivity between human and rodent responses.”

Evaluation of immunotoxicity induced by single or
concurrent exposure to N,N-diethyl-m-toluamide (DEET), pyridostigmine
bromide (PYR), and JP-8 jet fuel.
Peden-Adam MM1, Eudaly
“Approximately 5,000 to 80,000
of the US service personnel involved in the Persian Gulf War have complained
of a variety of nonspecific symptoms since their return in 1991. These
symptoms have been collectively labeled Gulf War Illness and include muscle
fatigue, general malaise, myalgia, impaired cognition, ataxia, headaches,
fever, joint pain, skin rash, gastrointestinal disturbances, sleep
disturbances, and respiratory difficulties. Exposures of military and
service personnel were diverse and included the prescribed anti-nerve gas
agent pyridostigmine bromide (PYR), N.N-diethyl-m-toluamide (DEET) insect
repellent, and environmental exposures to jet fuel. Thus, studies in our
laboratory were undertaken to determine if concurrent exposure to these
agents, singly or in combination, would contribute to significant
alterations in immunological function and disease susceptibility. To assess
immune status, eight-week old B6C3F1 female mice were exposed for 14 days to
single compounds or tertiary mixtures of 15.5 mg/kg DEET, 2 mg/kg
PYR, and 500 mg/kg JP-8 (termed low dose), or 31 mg/kg DEET, 5 mg/kg PYR,
and 1,000 mg/kg JP-8 (termed high dose). Immunosuppression was assessed 24 h
after the last exposure. No remarkable alterations were evident in
hematological parameters, spleen and thymus organ weight and total
cellularity, natural killer (NK) cell activity, cytotoxic T-cell activity,
or mitogen-induced lymphocyte proliferation after exposure to either single
or tertiary mixtures at low or high doses. A few changes in CD4/CD8 flow
cytometric lymphocyte subpopulations were detected after exposure to the
tertiary mixture at the high dose. Delayed type hypersensitivity (DTH) was
decreased by 88% after exposure to the high-dose mixture, and suppression of
antibody-specific IgM immune responses (plaque-forming cell, PFC) occurred
after exposure to all single and tertiary mixtures at both dose levels. In
the PFC response, antagonism was apparent in the mixture, while coexposure
to these agents resulted in a synergistic effect in the DTH response.
Susceptibility to B16F10 tumor or Listeria monocytogenes challenge was not
affected after single or tertiary exposures. These data suggest that
combined exposure to DEET, PYR, and JP-8 does not profoundly alter many
immunological endpoints, but does selectively target functional endpoints
such as the PFC and DTH response. This should be considered when assessing
human health risks in the military environment.”
Amazing, someone got the money to do real science and were not too cowardly
to slough it all off (like a snake) as somatochondria and then say, “Knight
me.” And, oh, guess what, about the veterans (I know, sorry to take the
attention off Silly Simon), they can have an immunological effect from
hypervaccination or too-many-not-really vetted vaccines.
More scientifically valid data: Garth Nicolson on
Mycoplasma (the fungal contaminant against which they put Thimerosal in
vaccines) in Gulf War Illness veterans:
Continuing research into Gulf
“Summary The presence of systemic mycoplasmal
infections in the blood of Gulf War veterans (n=8) and civilians (n=28)
with Amyotropic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) and age matched controls (n=70)
ws investigated by detecting mycoplasma gene sequences with forensic
Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) and back hybridization with a radiolabeled
internal oligonucleotide probe. Almost all ALS patients (30/36 or ~83%)
showed evidence of Mycoplasma species in blood samples, whereas <9%
of controls had blood mycoplasma infections (P<0.001). Using PCR ALS
patients with a positive test for any mycoplasmal infection were
investigated for the presence of M. fermentans, M. pneumonia, M. hominis,
and M. penetrans in their blood. All Gulf War veterans with ALS were
positive for M. fermentans, except one that was positive for M.
genitalium. In contrast, the 22/28 civilians with detectable
mycoplasmal infections had M. fermentans (13/22, 59%) as well as
other Mycoplasma species in their blood, and two of the civilian ALS
patients had multiple mycoplasma species (M. fermentans plus M. hominis) Of
the few control patients that were positive, only two patients (2/70, 2.8%)
were positive for M. fermentans (P<0.001). The results
support the suggestion that infectious agents may play a role in the
pathogenesis and/or progression of ALS, or alternatively, ALS patients are
extremely susceptible to systemic mycoplasmal infections.”
Naturally we wonder if any of those experimental vaccines the Gulf War
veterans were stabbed with were contaminated.
We’ve seen from in previous SASH criminal charge sheets for the Justice
Department (sic), that mycoplasma causes fatigue via hypoxia via erythrocyte
membrane osmotic changes and changes to mitochondria, etc.

Stress and the memory T-cell response to the Epstein-Barr virus
in healthy medical students.
Glaser R, Pearson
“This study investigated the memory T-cell proliferative response to
several early and late Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) polypeptides. Blood samples
were collected twice, 1 month before a 3-day block of examinations and again
on the last day of the exam series. Ss were 25 healthy, EBV seropositive
medical students. The proliferative response to 5 of the 6 EBV polypeptides
significantly decreased during examinations. In addition, Ss high (above the
median) in seekingsupport, as measured by the COPE, had lower proliferative
responses to 3 EBV polypeptides (p17, p52/50, and p85),as well as higher
levels of antibody to EBV virus capsid antigen. The
data provide further evidence that psychological stress can modulate the
cellular immune response to latent EBV.”

first night (low-stress), and the last night (high-stress) of night
float.Computerized reaction tests, Epworth Sleepiness Scale, and Wellness
Profile questionnaires were used to quantify fatigue level. DNA of human
herpes virusesHSV-1, VZV, EBV, as well as cortisol and melatonin
concentrations, werem easured in saliva. Residents at the high-stress
interval reported being sleepier compared to the rest interval. EBV DNA
level increased significantly at both stress intervals, while VZV DNA level
increased only at low-stress. DNA levels of HSV-1 decreased at low-stress
but increased at high-stress. Combined assessment of the viral DNA showed
significant effect of stress on herpes virus reactivation at both stress
intervals. Cortisol concentrations at both stress intervals were
significantly higher than those at rest.”
The Poor Things.
you are a medical school student or astronaut, your stress will produce a
real disease (use Pubmed to discover cortisol does this even independently
of stress), but if you are a plain old commoner or a soldier, no, you are
having a “pattern of protection” (are scared), or are somatizing or
producing scientifically valid illness biomarkers with your magical brain-
the definition of somatization disorders.
Look next at this description of somatization illnesses
(also called “medically unexplained”) from an “expert” seen on Fox “News”
describing the Justina
Pelletier CPS kidnap case, which became an international scandal
revealing what knuckleheads make decisions in New England “hospitals.”
This psychiatrist does not even question the illogic of
claiming that people can actually produce valid medical illness biomarkers
with their psychogenic powers alone, when, we know that if anyone had such
abilities they would not inflict the disease on themselves, but upon people
like the “ChIlD pRoTeCtIvE sErViCeS (CPS), psychiatry, or the CDC. At the
same time, he claims there is no scientific evidence for how someone could
produce such scientifically valid illness signs in themselves with their
Follow: "... causing her to believe she is
medically ill, when she is not—that they have kindled in her a 'somatoform
disorder' in which bodily symptoms actually have purely psychological roots,
not anatomic ones..."
And: "First, we lack sufficient research data to back up my clinical
experience and professional opinion (which some psychiatrists would agree
with and some would disagree with)."
person can have a real disease, but not a real disease, and no one knows how
they do it.
This sounds exactly like “magic” to a normal human.
We could take this one step further: Send Justina Pelletier and her kind to
the CIA and see if she can do remote
viewing or kill goats with her eyeballs, alone. If yes, she is a good
witch. If not, she is a bad witch. If she can only inflict illness on
herself, she must be a bad witch. Fair? Only a not-very-good witch would
issue backfiring incantations.
This is America. We have to listen to that kind of
crazy malarkey on the “news,” not to mention the horrors of those who
experience Wessely-ish, Munchausery-CPS-psychiatric Witch Trials,
And the somaformizing, cowardly soldiers … against the backdrop of known
disease and known biomarkers, bad vaccines, bad advice about vaccines (or no
advice as is the case with children and the MMR vaccine), Wessely’s fairy
tales about not enough money to perform real experiments, and mini-witches
still terrorizing the Boston area.
This paper does not intend to list all the data
available on the First Gulf War Illness. Some people have evidence for
other exposures. However, this vaccination business that Wessely first
reported explains how people who were not even deployed might have acquired
an illness. We know the mechanism of fungal contamination (mycoplasma) of
the vaccines or the vaccination of an immune suppressed person can result in
the live viruses being reactivated as shown in the SASH charge sheets.
We know from the cytokines study listed here, the Gulf War Illness veterans
seemed to have overall higher markers of immune activation than the ME/CFS
people tested, which conflicts with the other immunosuppression data, but we
do know there are scientific realities to be had and acquired.
And the Pentagon hired Simon Wessely to not only trash
the sick veterans, but people with ME/CFS, too.
No one asks Simon Wessely (or anyone else) how in the
hell people can magically produce real signs of real illness in themselves
and ONLY themselves.
It is logical to assume some of these people may have stress induced
Epstein-Barr like the astronauts and medical students, but what kind of
arrogance blames the victim in this 21stCentury, and makes them
suffer every physical, social, and financial deprivation and humiliation,
and does it for money?
There is a new definition of WHORE we
would like to enter in the next DSM, 5.1:
”One who debases their profession to the point where they would declare
their victims ‘conjurers’;
”The WHORES have no awareness of their illness, it’s along the lines of a
Delusional Disorder and one of the signs is that they deny they’re mentally
“They continually claim other
not sick, either.”
No one is ever sick, and there are no doctors. There
is no medicine, and there is not even a DSM or PDR.
(Well, that part is kinda true.)
