I do volunteer work for a group that faces an obscure auto-immune disease. While the disease it self is genetically based, there is a great deal of controversy regarding the experiences which trigger the active phase. As with all such, there are occasional detours into alternative treatments and theory. One of the things I do is to research the various claims and supply the larger picture - in the hope that no one will be taken for a ride!
Recently there’s been mention about airplanes supposedly spreading an anti-anthrax vaccination and causing a reaction in many people with symptoms close to those which often precede the first flare of the disease. It seems to me unlikely that there would be wide-spread spraying for anthrax, or that it would do any good - but I can’t find any reference at all. I checked urban legends and did a general search for anthrax, but found nothing. Does anyone out there know anything about this? The locale was reported to be the Pacific Northwest.
