Morgellons Researchers

Micelles Inside of Us?

 

Believing that Carnicom is finding that we have an artificial blood component in the carbon spheres that we are seeing in the red wine samples, within the frass of the fungus gnat, and in the fungal growth and which appears to be the main carbon sphere involved in Morgellons, and that they might be a respirocyte, I emailed the main expert  authority on Respirocytes, Robert Frietas, Jr., with the following question:

Dr. Freitas,

I am a Medical Researcher and seeing that you are an expert in Respirocytes and was wondering if you could identify the microscopic photo below as one?

Thanking you in advance for your time.”

(and sent him a link to this photo below:)

Dr. Frietas responds back with:

”No, those look more like micelles, with slightly lumpy edges;  the profile edge of a respirocyte would appear perfectly smooth at this magnification.

Best wishes,
Robert A. Freitas Jr. ”

Where Micelles Are Used?

A fellow researcher posted a link to a fluid analysis company that will analyze your water sample for free @

When you go to their Image Gallery, under ”Industrial”, you see ”Glass Microspheres” and ”Microencapsulated” spheres which also look like micelles.

I am wondering since they show potato starch twice above, what relationship it has to micelles?

Micelles Are Used in Water Treatment to Remove Antibiotics

This is an abstract below that shows where they used micelles in removing certain pharmaceuticals from our water:

”Removal of tetracycline and sulfonamide antibiotics from water by micelles pre-adsorbed on montmorillonite was studied. Micelles of benzyldimethylhexadecylammonium (BDMHDA) were used. Batch experiments demonstrated that the micelle–clay complexes (1% w/w) removed 96–99.9% of antibiotics from their water solutions containing from 5 to 50 mg/L of pharmaceuticals.”   [1]

Micelles are used as a flocculant:

Adsorptive Micellar Flocculation (AMF) is a surfactant mediated method for the removal of pollutants from water. It could be described as a hybrid of Micellar Enhanced Ultra Filtration (MEUF) and Coagulation-Flocculation with flocculants. In MEUF a micellar surfactant solution is formed in an effluent. It solubilises or adsorbs target pollutants, and then the pollutant-loaded micelles are rejected by a filtration membrane (with a cut off of less than 50 kDa, variable with the type of surfactant and related size of micelles). The result is a concentrate (retentate) containing micellar surfactant and associated pollutant, and an a treated effluent containing monomeric surfactant (that is, not formed in micelles) and non-associated pollutant. In Coagulation-Flocculation with flocculants a suitable combination of flocculant (e.g. Al3+, Fe3+) dosage and pH allows the precipitation of aluminum and iron salts of organic pollutants and subsequently the flocculation of the forming precipitate, thus facilitating its filtration. In AMF, micelles coagulate/flocculate by adsorption of the flocculant cation, which suppresses electrostatic repulsion between micelles (Talens et al., 1998).”  [2]

Water Treatment Processes:

”Abstract: Described herein are compositions and methods useful for the purification of water using dendritic macromolecules. The process involves using dendritic macromolecules (dendrimers) to bind to contaminants, and a filtration step to produce water from which contaminants have been removed or modified. Examples of dendrimers that may be used in the process include cation-binding dendrimers, anion-binding dendrimers, organic compound-binding dendrimers, redox-active dendrimers, biological compound-binding dendrimers, catalytic dendrimers, biocidal dendrimers, viral-binding dendrimers, multi-functional dendrimers, and combinations thereof.

In a typical MEUF process, a surfactant is added to polluted water. The aqueous solution is then passed through an ultrafiltration membrane with pore sizes smaller than those of the organic/metal ion laden micelles. In PEUF, a water-soluble linear polymer with strong binding affinity for the target metal ions is added to contaminated water. The resulting solution is passed through an ultrafiltration membrane (UF) with pore sizes smaller than those of the metal ion-polymer complexes.

MEUF is based on the use of non-covalently bonded micelles to extract organic solutes and/or bind metal ions. Micelles are dynamic and flexible structures with finite lifetime. Because of this, their size, shape, organic solubilization capacity, metal ion binding capacity and retention by UF membranes are very sensitive to surfactant concentration and solution physical-chemical conditions (e.g., pH, temperature, ionic strength, etc). Although the use of micellar solutions of height molecular weight block ABA copolymer of PEO-PPO-PEO surfactants could reduce surfactant losses to a certain extent (Richardson et al., (1999) J. Appl. Polym. Sci. 4:2290), the leakage of surfactant monomers remains a major problem in water treatment by MEUF.”  [3]

Benefits of MEUF:

We can see that there are possibly a lot of benefits to using micelle technology in our water treatment systems?  They are capable of removing or flocculating phenol, benzoic acid or 2,4-D, and ions like Zn and Cu and lots of other unwanted compounds…  BUT… something unusual has more than likely happened inside the body of a person with evident Morgellons that is interacting with the micelle in the water.

To find out if you have micelle or baculovirus expressions in your drinking water, call and set up a sample examination today.  Or call your water company to find out if micelle technology is being used in your area.
