LOS ANGELES, Nov. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- There is an old rhetorical saying, "If a tree falls in the forest and no one hears it, does it make a sound?" That same question could be posed to those people afflicted with Morgellons disease. The medical community at large still dismisses Morgellons as some kind of psychosomatic delusion, but just because these people's suffering is being ignored doesn't make their tragedy any less real. One specialist who has devoted his life to uncovering the causes of Morgellons, and ultimately providing an effective Morgellons disease treatment, is also on a personal quest to change skeptical hearts and minds. In his own words, Dr. Rahim Karjoo sheds some light on the causal factors and history of Morgellons disease:

It's about time that Morgellons victims were informed of the cause of Morgellons disease. Since 1994, I have known of symptoms similar to those attributed to Morgellons, including skins lesions, abnormal hair, sensations, anxiety, GI, oral, and joint problems. I saw these same symptoms when I conducted research on thousands of silicon implant cases.  I reviewed both clinical findings and microscopic examinations of the breast capsule as well as breast tissue around the implants, lymph nodes, kidney, intestinal mucosa and other tissues. My findings mirrored those found in many Morgellons cases that I had reviewed. Indeed, as many as 10% of confirmed Morgellons cases involved patients with breast implants. Four of the patients I reviewed ended up having their implants removed. Microscopic examination of the implant shows silicon dioxide (silica), both in the breast tissue as well as their skin samples. These cases showed more skin lesions than in cases of people who did not have silicon in their breast implants. Those people who do not have silicon implants but still exhibit symptoms of <
