After spending four years (and about $600,000) on an extensive study of the skin disease dubbed “Morgellons”, the CDC announced that they still don’t have any answers.
Morgellons is a skin disorder that involves “fibres” protruding from the skin, and it can also cause abnormal skin lesions.
The study did find the Morgellons is not contagious, though the CDC still doesn’t know what causes this strange disorder.
The researchers involved “found no infectious or environmental link to Morgellons”, according to the published report.
Morgellons has been one of the most widely discussed disorders among conspiracy theorists, who believe that the government is trying to cover up the “true cause” of the disorder.
