I believe this is saying that the number of physical deformities found in ticks that harbor tick-borne encephalitis are increasing- with leg atrophy being the most common, and nymphs showing the worst cases.

Of course, they can't measure the fact a tick might also have a whopping headache from encephalitis like we do.

Now, if the TICKS that are meant to harbor this tick borne disease are showing numerous physical problems (and assuming they followed the IDSA/CDC treatment guidelines and had a short term course of Doxy- at best), what are the diseases doing to humans?

Radiation and chemicals are probably mutating them.

lookup has a good point about chemicals (don't know enough about their radiation exposure but if around cellular or other kinds of towers, something to think about, too.

Similarly, all the little deformed froggies have been found to be connected to certain chemical exposure put into their habitat by humans who were / are either scientifically unaware, naïve or just don't care.

Good point lookup! That could be true too! The junk is affecting our fogs and polliwogs, so why not ticks?

Since Fukushima blew up and continues to spew it's radiation all over the globe (even the levels are rising in Australia)I am seeing so many mutations. I see a lot of mutations in the leaves on trees. Sometimes my celery is badly mutated inside and also I see mutated dandelions.

The radiation comes over on the jet stream and ocean currents and it comes down in the rain and snow. It sticks on pollen and dust.

I have a Geiger counter and the levels continue to rise.

The latest is:
http://www.newsweek.com/fukushima-nuclear-waste-dumped-ocean-japanese-protests-637108

"Toxic waste produced by one of the world's worst nuclear disasters will be dumped into the sea, according to the head of the Japanese company tasked with cleaning up the radioactive mess, despite protests from local fishermen.

Takashi Kawamura, chairman of Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), told foreign media that nearly 777,000 tons of water tainted with tritium,

a byproduct of the nuclear process that is notoriously difficult to filter out of water, will be dumped into the Pacific Ocean as part of a multibillion-dollar recovery effort following the Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011."


Peter Paget talks about it here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=69Fga3UGZqU

The dumpings will arrive on the west coast of the USA 18 months later.

Mineralize. Stay out of the rain. Take your binders.

It is just heartbreaking and the media, for the most part, is silent. They turned most of the radiation monitors off when the radiation first landed on the USA. No data. No news.

Hillary Clinton insured continued trade with Japan by increasing the allowable levels of radiation for Americans to eat and drink by 2,300%

Do you notice there are so few little song birds?
Before Fukushima we had so many black capped chickadees and nuthatches. That dwindled to just a few. Nuthatches are rare to see now.

Boy, that makes me sick to even read about it! Unbelievable! Listening to the link you shared now. Will also share it with others. Thanks lookup!

This is such bad news. It shouldn't be happening. UGH!
