Lyme Disease and Biological Warfare in the UK

15 October 2019

In July we wrote an article called ‘Is Lyme Disease Man Made’. In that article, we covered the origins of the disease in the town of Lyme and Plum Island, New York. On Plum Island, there was a secret lab that experimented with ticks and other methods under the cover of ‘disease control and prevention’.

What we intend to do today is to go into a bit more detail about Operation Paperclip, Operation Cauldron and others. We will show some of the effects that these classified experiments, using biological warfare agents, caused here in Britain and the United States.

This article will also show without a doubt that our own governments, military institutions and industry have and probably still are, indiscriminately using air-borne and tick-borne biological warfare, also known as germ warfare, on an innocent population without remorse.

Most of the mainstream news coverage about germ warfare centres around despot countries whose leaders are accused of using germ warfare on their own populations. But would numerous British governments release thousands of gallons of bacteria and viruses on us?


Is this a figment of my imagination? Err no I’m afraid it’s not.

Lyme disease in the UK

In our previous articles we have extensively documented certain info about Lyme disease in the UK; Symptoms of Lyme Disease, poor NHS Blood Tests, the rash caused by tick bites, and Willy Burgdorfer the scientist who the bacteria was named after. Please bear in mind that not everyone shows signs of being bitten by a tick.

Official UK figures admit to around 3000 new cases of Lyme each year. But the overall figures will be drastically higher, as many as 10,000 a year. UK testing is inadequate at best and most doctors are untrained to recognise the symptoms, let alone treat them. 

The USA figures are much higher from 330,000 to 437,000 new cases per year. In Europe there are over 300,000 new cases reported a year.


(Rep) Chris Smith (USA) ‘Was Lyme disease created as a bioweapon’?

In July, (Rep) Chris Smith brought an amendment to the House of Representatives. The amendment was passed by the full house. This amendment will direct the Inspector General of the Department of Defense to investigate, and I quote;

‘Possible involvement of the Department of Defense biowarfare labs in the weaponization of Lyme disease in ticks and other insects between 1950 and 1975’   

These bio-warfare labs include Fort Detrick Maryland and Plum Island facilities. 

Operation Paperclip – A Brief Explanation.

At the end of WW2, the Allies were no longer Allies and the USSR was now an enemy of the West. The Nazis had thousands of scientists who escaped being involved in the Nuremberg trials, because the Western countries, mainly the USA decided to get these scientists out of Germany before the USSR got their hands on them. Operation Paperclip was a secret program of the Joint Intelligence Objectives Agency (JIOA) set up to round up as many Nazi scientists as possible.

More than 1600 Nazi scientists, engineers, and technicians were smuggled into the U.S. to work for the government on secret projects. The most famous being Wernher Von Braun and his V2 rocket team. He went on to become a Director of NASA during the Apollo development. One of the other scientists was a doctor called Eric Taub. 

Taub had been experimenting with tick-borne diseases in Nazi Germany. They had even field-tested this in Russia before the end of WW2. He went on to work with the CIA, Army, Navy and the USDA (United States Department of Agriculture). Please see our post ‘Is Lyme Disease Man-Made’?


Porton Down – Operation Cauldron

Porton Down in Wiltshire is ‘The Ministry of Defence Science Technology Laboratory (DSTL)’, it is a Level 3 Lab. It’s tucked away in 7000 acres. From 1945-1989 scientists carried out experiments on more than 3400 live human military guinea pigs.

The unsuspecting soldiers were conned into these experiments. Scientists were testing deadly nerve agents including Sarin. Some of the subjects died, others had debilitating long term damage. During the past 80 years, 25,000 human subjects have been experimented on at Porton Down, with sarin, mustard Gas, and tear gas.

UK Biological Warfare Testing

A government report showed how The Ministry of Defense used large parts of the UK as a giant laboratory from 1940-1979. A 60-page government report revealed how hundreds of secret operations were given the green light, using the UK population as Human Guinea Pigs. Here are a few of the experiments;

The Fluorescent Particle Trials

Between 1955 and 1963 the MoD used planes that flew from North East England to the tip of Cornwall and along the South and West coasts. These secret flights dropped massive amounts of ‘Zinc Cadmium Sulphide’ on the people below. The chemical drifted miles inland and was easy to monitor because it was fluorescent.

In another trial the same chemical ‘Zinc Cadmium Sulphide’ was sprayed from a generator while being towed along a road by a truck in Frome in Somerset.

‘Zinc Cadmium Sulphide’ – Cadmium can cause Lung Cancer and possible birth defects. The Allies classified it as a chemical weapon during WW2.

Large Area Coverage Trials

In the report, the MoD describes that between 1961 and 1968 over one million people all along the South Coast were exposed to bacteria including e.coli and bacillus globigii, which mimics anthrax. These releases were sprayed from a military ship named ‘Icewhale’, that was anchored off the Dorset coast. The ship sprayed the micro-organisms in a 5-10-mile radius.

E.coli; nausea, stomach cramps, diarrhea, fever, malaise, loss of appetite, dehydration.

bacillus globigii; Pneumonia like symptoms.

DICE Trails

These were secretly conducted in South Dorset between 1971 and 1975. The trials involved UK and US scientists who sprayed massive quantities of Serratia Marcescens bacteria, with an Anthrax stimulant and Phenol in the air.

The Sabotage Trials

Between 1952 and 1964 similar infections were released into the London Underground at lunchtime along the Northern Line, the infections dispersed about 10 miles.

Serratia Marcescens bacteria; Urinary and respiratory infections, endocarditis, osteomyelitis, septicemia, wound infections, eye infections, and meningitis.

Phenol causes; gastrointestinal damage, and even death, severe skin damage, irritation to the respiratory tract, difficulty breathing and muscle twitching.

Anthrax symptoms; flu-like symptoms, sore throat, mild fever, fatigue, muscle aches, chest discomfort, shortness of breath, nausea, coughing up blood, painful swallowing.

To conclude, the report also shows trials off the coast of Scotland and around the Caribbean using Anthrax. It is estimated that the MoD dropped 4600 kilos of zinc cadmium sulphide on British civilians from 1940-1979.

Health Bunker

Porton Down carries out experiments on vector-borne bacteria like Lyme disease. Forgive me but, if the MoD sprayed much of the population of Britain with infectious diseases from 1940-1979. Keeping it secret for almost 50 years. 

Is it that much of a leap to say the MoD might have done the same with Lyme disease? We will never know. Until that is in about 50 years time when they release the secret documents.

What we do know is that they are experimenting with Ebola, Anthrax and The Plague Virus, which in 1999 they asked for human volunteers to test a new vaccine. Doesn’t look like it’s changed much to me. 

I could have written for hours on this subject; no mention of the 275,000 Gulf War Syndrome victims, ignored by the UK and US governments. When tests have shown the Anthrax vaccines and in particular  ‘squalene’ which is an adjuvant they use in vaccines, is high on the guilty list.

Nor did I get time to mention, nuclear testing using British servicemen in the Pacific where tens of thousands have suffered the effects, some have died from radiation poisioning. 

No recognition of illness or financial settlement has ever been given to any of these military personnel. 

I’ve known these stories for a number of years now. When I first read books on the subject, it shocked and upset me I have to say. To think our own leaders could do this to us is truly unnerving and upsetting.

If they were spraying infectious diseases then in my view is they’ll still be doing it now. Spray a disease one year, Big Pharma fills their boots the next. It’s just good business planning. Foolproof in fact. And we are the fools. 

So am I just a conspiracy nut? I shall leave that for you to decide.

Good Books on the Subject are;
