Lyme Disease and BioWar Research
For over 50 years, the United States government has experimented with the world's deadliest viruses at a research facility on Plum Island, located just 2 miles from Long Island, New York and 85 miles from New York City. Conceived as part of the United States government's biowar program, Plum Island was used for the development of germ weapons designed to devastate a nation's livestock and, thereby, destroy its people's food supply.
Our guest, Michael Christopher Carroll, explains the operations of the Plum Island virus research facility and the important role played by Nazi Germany's top bioweapons scientist in its establishment. He, also, presents the evidence linking the virus research at Plum Island to the emergence of Lyme Disease. This debilitating and, as yet, incurable illness first appeared in 1975 in nearby Old Lyme, Connecticut and is one of the fastest growing infectious diseases in the United States.
Michael Christopher Carroll devoted 7 years to researching the government's activities at Plum Island and is the author of Lab 257, The Disturbing Story of the Government's Secret Germ Laboratory. Mr. Carroll is a graduate of St. John's University Law School where he was editor of the Law Review. He now practices law in California. His website is www.michaelchristophercarroll.com
