I just watched a Lady GaGa video for the first time yesterday... Oh boy - it was like Madonna on meth... LOL

I think it gave me brain damage between the kinky sex, food, violence, weird vocal modulations, subliminal stuff, EMFs... What are they thinking. Maybe I'm too old to understand? It's not meant for my generation. I'm 48 for God sakes.

Well each his own I guess....The point was LUPUS.

Lupus is commonly misdiagnosed LYME.

She said she has it in her family tree....

[lol] [lol]

Anybody know what state she is from? I agree that Lupus often means LYME.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20483726

The reduced numbers of iNKT cells resulted from significant reductions in the expression of the early growth response 2 and promyelocytic leukemia zinc finger transcription factors.

In the mice with few to no iNKT cells, there was no difference in the severity of Lyme arthritis compared with wild type controls,

following infections with the spirochete B. burgdorferi.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18691038

Invariant NKT cells have been implicated in several different autoimmune diseases in mice and humans, including systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).

Abnormalities in the number and functions of NKT cells have been observed in SLE patients and mouse strains genetically predisposed to lupus (MRL/lpr, NZB/W F1).

Moreover, inverse correlation between the frequency of NKT cells and IgG levels has been observed.

Elevated IgG levels in relatives of patients with lupus as well as in patients with lupus were associated with

low frequencies of NKT cells.

Invariant NKT Cell Development Requires a Full Com... [J Immunol. 2010]
=============================================
I believe these 2 say the possibilities are there and should be addressed.

I wish they would hand over those mice they are breeding to see if they have Lyme or something they are passing thru generations.

Do these mice have Morgellons?

These are basic questions we need to know.
