In my last post titled “Could Morgellons be an Ongoing Chemical Reaction in our Bodies?” I spoke a little about jet fuel and how 100% octane jet fuel contains approximately 14% Toluene by weight. But what I didn’t know about was something called Biocides that are used in jet fuel to kill bacteria, yeast, and fungi. Now, I shouldn’t really be surprised after all of this research I’ve been doing lately.  If you’ve been reading along then you know about Pseudomonas Putida (the very versatile oil eating bacteria capable of all kinds of things) and so on but I never though that such things growing in the tanks and fuel lines of jets would be a real problem, but it appears that it is. I’m not sure this is of any significance but thought I would post about it just in case. This idea of germs in jet fuel was given to me by Clark, thanks Clark !

Twenty-seven (27) individual species of bugs can occur in diesel fuel

Now, diesel fuel is not jet fuel but I thought this list of “things” that can grow in it is interesting. This information can be found HERE.

Bacteria utilize hydrocarbons and reproduce ‘asexually’ by binary fission; swelling in size as they feed, they then separate into two cells. In this way microbes double their numbers every 20 minutes, one spore becomes 262,144 in 6 hours.  Typical bacteria known to utilise hydrocarbons are Pseudomonas aeruginosa, other Pseudomonas species, Flavobacterium spp., Acinetobacter spp., Alcaligenes spp., Micrococcus spp., Arthobacter spp., Corynebacterium spp., Brevibacterium spp., Klebsiella app.

Yeast bud onto the parent cell, then eventually separate. Reproduction takes several hours and yeast prefer acidy environments. Typical yeasts growing on hydrocarbons are Candida spp., Saccharomyces spp., Torula spp., Torulopsis spp., Hansenula spp.

Fungus grow in the form of branched hyphae, a few microns in diameter, forming thick, tough, intertwined mycelial mats at fuel/water interfaces. Typical moulds which degrade hydrocarbons are Penicillium spp., Aspergillus spp., Fusarium spp., Monilia spp., Botrytis spp, Cunninghammella spp., Scopulariopsis spp., Cladisporium resinae,  Hormonicus resinae.


If you recall my very first blog post titled “Does this identification mean anything? I do not know” focused on Pseudomonas Putida, one of the two forms of bacteria Dr. Wymore cultured off actual Morgellon fibers. The other one was Corynebacterium efficiens and I noticed that Corynebacterium spp appears in the bacteria list above, probably of no significance however.

What does fascinate me is all these things growing in fuel, including jet fuel. At first I wondered if these things could be raining down upon us but it’s probably very unlikely that they could survive even in fuel that might not be burning clean, however, anything is possible.


Biocides for Jet Fuel

From Fuel Quality Services, Inc.

Microbial contamination in aviation fuel systems dates back to the 1950’s. For over half a century fungi and bacteria have consumed kerosene type fuels and have demonstrated their ability to survive the freeze and thaw cycles of the aircraft fuel systems during flight. Microbes enter aircraft fuel systems as a result of poor housekeeping, contaminated hydrant systems, separators and storage tanks. Microbial contamination undoubtedly creates biomats that clog scavenge systems, coats fuel quality indicator system (FQIS) probes, and leads to structural corrosion.

I’m sure these folks make a fine product, I only present this information here to demonstrate that jet fuel, like diesel fuel is effected by bacteria, yeast, and fungi.


Are Bacteria Floating Around In and Falling From the Sky?

When I was originally researching Pseudomonas Putida I stumbled across some information about how Putida can actually be found high in our atmosphere among  the clouds. I’m not saying this is coming from jet fuel by any means, probably by simple evaporation processes.

Fluorescent pseudomonads isolated from Hebridean cloud and rain water produce biosurfactants but do not cause ice nucleation

Microorganisms were discovered in clouds over 100 years ago but information on bacterial community structure and function is limited. Clouds may not only be a niche within which bacteria could thrive but they might also influence dynamic processes using ice nucleating and cloud condensing abilities. Cloud and rain samples were collected from two mountains in the Outer Hebrides, NW Scotland, UK. Cloud samples were dominated by a mixture of fluorescent Pseudomonas spp., some of which have been reported to be ice nucleators.


I just thought this was interesting and would document it.


Bees, Collapsing Colony Disorder (or CCD), and TNT

I have been following the CCD syndrome these past few years and thought I would throw this into the mix. If you haven’t heard about CCD here’s a quick definition from wikipedia on CCD.

Colony collapse disorder (or CCD) is a phenomenon in which worker bees from a beehive or Western honey bee colony abruptly disappear. While such disappearances have occurred throughout the history of apiculture, the term colony collapse disorder was first applied to a drastic rise in the number of disappearances of Western honey bee colonies in North America in late 2006.


Here is a quote from the article Solving the Mystery of the Vanishing Bees on the seriousness of the situation.

One of us (vanEngelsdorp) performed autopsies on Hackenberg’s remaining insects and found symptoms never observed before, such as scar tissue in the internal organs. Initial tests also detected some of the usual suspects in bee disease. In the gut contents we found spores of nosema, single-celled fungal parasites that can cause bee dysentery. The spore counts in these and in subsequent samples, however, were not high enough to explain the losses. Molecular analysis of Hackenberg’s bees, performed by the other of us (Cox-Foster), also revealed surprising levels of viral infections of various known types. But no single pathogen found in the insects could explain the scale of the disappearance.

In other words, the bees were all sick, but each colony seemed to suffer from a different combination of diseases. We hypothesized that something had compromised the bees’ immune system, making them susceptible to any number of infections that healthy colonies would normally fend off.  And Hackenberg was right: the prime suspects, varroa mites, were not present in numbers significant enough to explain the sudden die-off.


TNT (Dynamite) – What could this have to do with Bees?

I thought I would bring up a subtle point about honey bees and TNT (dynamite) which is really an acronym for Trinitrotoluene (Tri-nitro-toluene).  Yep, there’s our old friend Toluene again.  Interestingly, they use honey bees to locate mines so they can be deactivated. The thing is, these bees think they are finding food, how interesting.


Look at this question posed by a beekeeper in Africa and his dilemma.

I am wondering if you can help. I am a small bee farmer in South Africa. I specialize in the control and removal of problem swarms. I have removed them from some of the strangest places. I have just had a request from a company to assist them at their factory. They process TNT and the bees seem to be attracted to it in a big way. Workers get stung on occasions while carrying the TNT and should they drop it, well you can just imagine. This has already happend on a few occasions with some serious results. The cardboard boxes which the TNT comes in, attract swarms once it is empty and discarded. 2 or 3 swarms are "caught" this way every week. I don’t have a problem with sorting out this problem, but it interests me to find out what is attracting the bees. This will also help in the solving of the problem.

Considering all of the Toluene pollution that could be found by bees one wonders if they are able to find it and thus mistake it as food and poison the hive? There is some incredibly bizarre stuff about how these bees abandon and hive, and no other bees will go in to raid the food, the bees leave their brood and even abandon the queen.


And finally, one more quote from WHY ARE THE BEES DISAPPEARING?

It is a fact that honeybees have been used to detect land mines because they are attracted to some component of the explosives used in the mines. They actually pick this material up and bring it back to the colony where it can be analyzed by the people doing the study. If bees are attracted to some component of explosives, isn’t it possible they are also attracted to some unknown (or unlisted) component of pesticides? The chemical structure of the highly dangerous explosive, TNT, or TriNitroToluene, which is used in land mines is benzene and a methy group of chemicals.

Benzene and toluene, two components of TNT are also inert ingredients used in many pesticides. I believe the bees are attracted to pesticides containing these inert ingredients as they are to TNT. If so, the bees may be attracted to trees and shrubs that are being sprayed and will be more inclined to pick up the pesticides and bring it back to their colonies where they can contaminate many more individual bees as well as the honey in the hive.


Now, I know this is pretty anecdotal and might give you cause to laugh but how many sufferers have themselves thought “If only I can move, this stuff is all over my house, my yard. I’m out of here?” In fact, I know many that have, and even a few that abandoned their homes to live in tents.  Could the immune systems of the honey bees actually be being destroyed by them finding sources of Toluene and bringing it back to the hive? Is what is happening to the bees similar to what is happening to Morgellons sufferers? You know how they make honey, here’s how (HERE).

Finally, I’ll leave you with a bee joke that will amuse you.

A bee walks into a doctors office and says to the doctor … “Doc, I’m covered in varroa mites, I can feel them crawling all over me and then he opens a matchbox full of them to show the doctor. The doctor smiles and says “Have you been reading that darned internet again …..”

Sorry for such a strange set of topics tonight everyone. Just getting some thoughts down on paper …


Comments on: "Jet Fuel Germs, Clouds, and Bees – A Potpourri" (10)

  1. Dear Mr Common Sense and Jill,
    I have worked with a man who is a beekeeper, 3rd Generation one hour from me. I also work with a Great Soil Entomologist. They understand what you are saying about the varroa mites.
    Our Florida governmental bodies for the EPA insist on spraying dangerous chemicals on the crops, beekeepers, farmers, and citizens in Florida, at night.
    If I know there is spraying going on in my County I am asking and demanding that it come no where near my home and the homes of my neighbors. The people who are doing night time spraying are not helping in this mess.
    As a matter of a fact, I have contacted an EPA lawyer and requested that she look into the governments practices of pesticidal misuse. The EPA is responsible for the oversight of the United States of America and it’s practices. This is their job and I hope that they will do their job in the name of the health, safety and well being of our Country.
    I love the matchbox story, I have the 2 ft square box syndrome, from all the samples that people have sent to me. I have it sealed, to slide them in the future, but it is arduous and very time consuming on my part right now.
    I need a large lab and a level 2 approval so that I may take human samples, these are the rules of the Governing bodies. Dr Wymore, is one man with a full time job and has done what he is doing on his own time.
    Dr Kilani is awesome in regard to taking samples and doing labs but he can not process human tissue biopsys.
    I think we need to get Ahmed Kilani some funding so that he can take human pathology samples and increase his ability to process them. I am all for some Grants for Dr Kilani and Dr Wymore. Many of these fine scientists are doing this work on their own time and their own dime.

    Irradiated Foods Cause Severe Neurological Damage (Toluene Again)

    (NaturalNews) In a study just published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, scientists from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (UW-Madison) report on cats developing severe neurological symptoms due to a degradation of myelin, the fatty insulator of nerve fibers called axons. Because myelin facilitates the conduction of nerve signals, when it is lost or damaged there can be impairment of sensation, movement, thinking and other functions, depending on what particular nerves are affected. This loss of myelin is found in several disorders of the central nervous system in humans — the best known being multiple sclerosis (MS).

    However, not everyone agrees irradiated food is fine for humans or animals. According to the Center for Food Safety, studies have shown irradiation produces volatile toxic chemicals such as benzene and TOLUENE, which are known or suspected to cause cancer and birth defects. A 2001 study found an association between colon tumors and 2-alkylcyclobutanones (2-ACB’s), a new chemical compound detected only in foods that have been irradiated.

  3. Dear Friends,
    The Scientist who discovered Nitroglycerin, Ascanio Sobererno, did so, in order to prevent angina or chest pain due to increasing the oxygen to the heart in cardiac problems. Then frankenscience and war profiteers turned it into Dynamite or bombs.
    Do you know that this man (Ascanio Sobreno) died of Cardiac Disease and because of what man did with his Nitro patent, he refused to even take his own discovery as he was dying from Cardiac Disease. This brilliant Scientist refused to take his own Nitroglycerin.
    We inventors and Scientists carry a heavy load when it comes to our patents and discoveries….because a perfectly good discovery can be used in harmful ways.
    Look up the Ascanio Sobrero, who discovered Nitroglycerine and read about the hell he went through when Man misused his science to make bombs and dynamite.

    Check out how long it took Dr Hiemlich to prove the Heimlich Choking method works, on patients who have inhaled food into their airways. It took Dr Hiemlich 8 years to prove that this works, he was ripped to shreds by his peers and called “crazy”.

    I can totally understand these scientists’frustration when they discover new ways to do good things and they are misused by Giant money makers, drug companies in their need to take perfectly good patents and discoveries and screw them up in the name of power and money. Look at Merck, Smith and Dolme and what they did with mycobacteriums at….Old man George Merck discovered a mycobacterium that would slowly cause debilitating disease and with Dr Lo they got a patent on disease, so that they could create the drugs to treat it. These ” Sinister Brainiacs”, unleashed AIDs in Punta Gordia and Canada helped him do so.

    I am not saying this is a mycobacteria, I am just trying to educate others on what our
    science is doing in the name of power, greed and amassing fortunes.

    This is changing and people are getting it, that they have been poisoned. You can not fool mother nature and she will win every time. I believe we are coming close to viable treatment options and hopefully a cure.
    I am going to Calif to meet the good people at ANu Water, we are all trying to gear up and get people well. It is going to take at least 30 days to gear up. Hang in there and look up my protocol under Morgelllons at;

    Thank You and God Bless,
    Trisha Springstead RN

  4. Trisha,

    Does Dr. Wymore have IRB approval to take human tissue samples?

    What about Dr. Kalani? Why can’t he process human tissue samples?

    Is Level 2 approval a part of IRB?

    Thank you,


  5. Mr. Common Sense said:

    Barb, I approved your comment and hope those are sincere questions. I have blocked many attacks on all fronts but approved your post hoping you are sincere. Are you asking because you need someone to look at your samples? I’m not sure why you would pose that question to Trisha? To be honest, right now about all we can do is hope the CDC comes through, there are others researching this but they are so swamped reaching them is darn near impossible.

    Reading the morning newspaper can be hazardous to your health (Toluene)

    Newspaper ink contains toluene. The toluene levels found in this study were actually from newspaper stands where a much larger quantity of newspapers could be found when compared to a single newspaper in a home.

    In some cases the toluene levels in the newspaper stands exceeded 100 times the levels outside the stands. This is a good warning to dispose of yesterday´s paper instead of allowing papers to stack up in the home where they may sicken small children, pets, and susceptible individuals.

    We are exposed to so much Toluene I’m shocked. I notice a lot of people find my blog by searching on Toluene and Fibromyalgia, hmm …..

  7. Dear Barb,
    You might want to speak to Dr Kilani yourself and Dr Wymore. I know they would tell you what level thier labs are and if they can take human tissues samples. When I met
    with Dr Wymore last summer in Atlanta, he hadn’t recieved his level 2 status, when Nancy Toler cooresponded with him in Novermber, he still did not have level 2 status.

    I tried to get a doctor to take a biopsy for Sidney in Oklahoma and called Dr Kilani a month or so ago. He can do testing for mycobacterias and other things, but doesn’t have the facilities to take samples that require dissection.

    I have one Doctor here in Florida that can take tissue samples but he does not want to be named for now.
    I hope you can find a university where they have the Level 2 status for you. The other thing is that if you put the samples in Formaldehyde, they degrade the specimen, it needs to be put in Grain Alcohol.

  8. Thank you Trisha

    Why does my comment above say “Trisha” said

  9. Mr. Common Sense,

    I was only asking Trisha because I have never received any kind of response whatsoever from Dr. Wymore and it seemed from the articles Trisha participated in that perhaps she would know since she seems to have communicated directly with many researchers. (unlike a nobody like me)

    Yes, I was looking for a place to send samples. I asked Trisha because she mentioned something somewhere I read about getting her own Level 2 and I did not know if that was the same as IRB approval. I do know that the CDC has IRB approval. I have read that IRB approval is good because it oversee research and validates it. I am hoping that Dr. Wymore get is or has it since a vast amount of people are putting so much confidence ONLY in him. I would hate to see people hurt. That is all.

    This is no attack on you or Trisha.

    I appreciate everything Trisha has done for this disease. It’s a shame that you need to be so skeptical. I am sorry that you have had to ward off attacks. That is a terribly unpleasant piece of information.

    I can see what looks like sooty air drop from the airplanes and jets flying over my house. This ‘air’ seems to coagulate into like a dark cloud, but not as defined as a cloud; more like a smoggy blotch. I can then watch it drop down in a way that is too dificult to explain because once it hits the roof/ground/bushes, it seems to become electrified with what looks like tiny pin-point little neon flashes. Especially when it hits the water in my pool; the surface of the water begins moving and I can see the little neon sparks. Can anyone relate in any way to this?
