In considering an infectious etiology to any chronic mental illness there are at least four categories to consider. First are those infections already recognized to induce psychiatric symptoms. These include pneumonia, urinary tract infection, sepsis, malaria, Legionnaire’s disease, syphilis, typhoid, diphtheria, HIV, rheumatic fever and herpes. (Ref: Chuang) While the psychiatric effects of these infections are known to the medical field, they are rarely screened for if the initial presentation is made to a mental health professional. Moreover, the significance of some of these infections may date back to prenatal development. Research done at the John Hopkins Children’s Center and published in the Archives of General Psychiatry in 2001 found that mothers with evidence of Herpes Simplex Type 2 infection at the time of pregnancy had children almost six times more likely to later develop schizophrenia. And in the US, Europe and Japan, birth clusters of individuals who develop schizophrenia later in life closely mirror the seasonal distribution of Ixodes ticks at the time of conception (Lyme disease). https://www.morgellonssurvey.org/the-role-of-infections-in-mental-illness/ --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/morgellons/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/morgellons/support

This material has a hexagonal structure and crystals grow as thick hexagonal plates with very smooth surfaces. The iron sublattice is known to order antiferromagnetically at ˜150°C, but the rare earth sublattices in the RFe6Ge6 series are not affected by this ordering and behave independently.
