LIFESTYLE: The dangerous disease called Cerebral Toxoplasmosis

The cerebral toxoplasmosis is a new disease which was first found in 1918, in a child from Czechoslovakia at the time of the influenza epidemic. Since 1937, the disease appeared again among children in New York, afterward in a Eurasian child in India.

It is caused generally by a harmless agent, the protozoon Toxoplasma gondii. This is supposed to be absorbed by eating a raw pork or lamb. Toxoplasma gondii was shown in studies as a dormant, invincible, harmless colonization in 0% (children up to 12 years of age in the village of Mope, Cameroun and up to 50% of population of the USA.)

A few infections were recorded in laboratories. They must have been virulent and dangerous strains. In October 1977, at the start of the mass AIDS diseases, 37 people in Atlanta, GA, USA, became infected with a particularly virulent strain. Toxoplasmosis and Cytomegalo Virus-infections frequently set in simultaneously.

Toxoplasma in mass AIDS diseases: Knowledge of forthcoming diseases

Already in 1981, Dumrak maintained that toxoplasmosis is spread with Aids. This was based on the knowledge of imminent infections. The first reports on toxoplasmosis Aids diseases come from 1982. Up to 40% of dark-skinned immigrants (African-Haitians) who were locked in two internment camps in Florida, and subsequently went down with Aids after being infected.

Otherwise, in the USA as a whole, only 4% of Aids patient had cerebral toxoplasmosis as initial disease. In regards to Africa, it would have been impossible to evaluate the prevalence of toxoplasma or there is vague knowledge of incidences between 5 and 17%. Yet a spread of this brain disease in African states was already prepared in a scientific literature.

In 1985, Excler determined an 87% rate of infections among healthy people aged 40 years and over in the parts of Burundi. In 1990, Fleming stated in "Aids in Africa," Cerebral toxoplasmosis is common.

This finding indicates that Cytomegalo Virus incidence in Aids patients is not a natural sequence of the HIV disease. It was caused by additional willful infection with special CMV - strains. CMV particularly affects the skin and nerve cells during natural infections.

This disease afflicts people with pale skin on average ten times more frequently than dark-skinned people. Since 1935, experiments have been carried out in the USA, Germany and in Holland to use Cytomegaloviruses which have a predilection for affecting dark-skinned people.

Cytomegalo Virus infection in HIV patients sometimes affects 100% in the USA. The Cytomegalo Virus incidence in Aids must have been induced on purpose. Different strains of CMV are said to have occurred among homosexual men during the Aids period. The spread of Aids-related CMV among Africans in Africa hasn't been determined.
