Vulture.com posted an article about Jack Osborne and his new Travel Channel show, Portals to Hell. A series about Jack searching for ghosts and demons with his partner, paranormal researcher Katrina Weidman.
In the article, the interviewer has asked him about how he experienced symptoms while he was filming for the episode, Haunted Highway, which is not normal for him since he has the disease mostly under control.
But Jack emphasized that his most recent and significant flareup of his MS had occurred while filming for show at Skinwalker Ranch in Utah. A place that has been a hotbed not just for UFOs, strange monsters and secret U.S. military operations, but also for the abnormally high amounts of people who have autoimmune diseases in the area.
In fact, a study by the University of Utah found the rate of MS in Tooele County is seven times higher than the national average and the overall rate for Utah is twice the national average.
What I find VERY interesting is that there is no known cause of MS but people are genetically pre-dispositioned to the disease and also outside environmental factors such as toxins that trigger it.
When you research MS, the symptoms and alleged causes look almost exactly the same as the symptoms a person experiences with Toxic Mold illness which is also from the environment and people can be more susceptible to it because they are genetically pre-dispositioned.
Also, I have a scientific study and scientists below connecting mold mycotoxins to being a not only possible causes for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) but also paranormal activity like I have discussed many times in my articles and video walk and talks.
In addition, I have seen pictures of the Ranch and the old decrepit buildings. There is obviously A LOT of water damage and mold on the structures due to the lack of upkeep.
Here are some pictures of the buildings on Skinwalker Ranch proving my point.
Inside the homestead
Now let’s get back to the mold and MS connection. Here is a snippet of the Vulture.com interview with Jack Osborne;
“You’ve been very open about living with MS and the mental effects of that. I read that you actually experienced your first symptoms while you were filming Haunted Highway, was there any point where you worried that the stress might have an effect on your physical well-being?
You know, it’s funny because we went back to Skinwalker Ranch and that’s where I had my most significant flare-up, it was while we were filming there. And there is a lot of theories that whatever’s going on at Skinwalker Ranch is essentially igniting people’s autoimmune issues.
There’s a lot of autoimmune disease within that area of Utah. And it’s kind of abnormally high. And so people are trying to really figure that out.
Jack concludes, “I don’t know, I don’t have any scientific evidence to prove that. From everything I know, with an autoimmune disease, you’re kind of genetically pre-dispositioned to it, and then you have some kind of environmental outside issue that triggers it.
So I don’t know, I wasn’t necessarily worried about the stress because I don’t find it that stressful to do this thing. I find it quite enjoyable, it’s fun and I get to travel and I’m working with my good friends. And it’s a really great work environment, albeit in scary places.”
As he eloquently stated, ” with an autoimmune disease you’re kind of genetically pre-dispositioned to it, and then you have some kind of environmental outside issue that triggers it.”
So what could this “kind of environmental outside issue” be?”
Another important detail to my theory is the U.S. military hiring of a couple of prominent microbiologists (they study microorganisms like molds/fungi!) who had what appears to be secretive roles in the research program.
For example, one of the scientist’s names was Colm Kelleher who was the senior research scientist with a twenty-year career in cell and molecular biology.
There was also another person on staff that would know a thing or 2 about molds – Senior Microbiologist at BAASS, Dr. Scott Lohrke who also happens to be the current Senior Scientist at The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company.
His alleged duties were the development of laboratory capabilities for the evaluation of novel aerospace technologies including novel materials and propulsion systems for possible detrimental effects on humans and the environment.
Now let’s get into the science.
Two big environmental issues researchers are looking for the possible causes of multiple sclerosis (MS) are mold exposure and decreased vitamin D which is a critical nutrient for immune system modulation
A 2016 study, “Is Mold Toxicity Really a Problem for Our Patients Part 2?” details who it is well known, the incidence of multiple sclerosis (MS) increases with distance from the equator, which also correlates with mold exposure and decreased vitamin D.
The body’s nerves are protected by an insulating coating around the nerve cells called the myelin sheath. Myelin is a fatty substance that insulates the nerves, helping them send electrical signals that control movement, speech, and other functions.
Researchers speculate that this leads to vitamin D deficiencies, weakening the immune system, increasing the risk of getting MS.
Another possible explanation for the higher prevalence of MS in colder climates could be mold because people in colder climates spend more time indoors, making them more susceptible to illnesses caused by indoor air quality issues.
Robert J. Fox, M.D., medical director at the Mellen center for Multiple Sclerosis at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation in Ohio says;
“In people with MS the body’s defenses turn against the brain and spinal cord–the central nervous system. The immune system attacks the nerves, then leaves them alone, then attacks them again; causing pockets of damage at multiple sites here, there, and everywhere.”
The assault appears to zero in on the myelin, a sheath surrounding nerves like insulation around a pipe. Damage to the sheath slows down the traffic of messages through the nervous system, leading to M.S.’s many symptoms The aftermath of the attacks on the myelin sheath cause scar tissue (sclerosis) in the brain and spinal cord, which can impair nerve function.
Research published in 1998 shows that the attacks also damage nerve cells by slicing through the nerve fibers, a process called transection.
“it’s like snipping telephone wires out on the street.” says Dr. Fox.
“At first, the telephone company can find a way to reroute the signals, but eventually the phone service starts failing. That’s what we think happens in the later stages of MS, when the brain can no longer compensate for the loss of nerve pathways.”
Dr. Rick Sponaugle of the Florida Detox & Wellness Institute says this is why patients suffering from a mold illness may actually be misdiagnosed with MS!
“Three out of four Americans who naturally produce antibodies to mold toxins can live and work in water-damaged buildings without suffering significant demise in their health. But patients who carry the HLA gene have no antibodies to deactivate and remove mold toxins. They develop excessive accumulation of these harmful toxins.
Mold toxins are lipophilic, meaning their molecular structure consists of fatty acid molecules. For this reason, mold toxins migrate to and deposit in the brain because the brain is the ‘fattiest’ organ, consisting of 60% fat….Mold toxins destroy the myelin sheath on brain neurons, causing the classic white spots seen in MS. “
