An alternative theory about CWD
The Spiroplasma theory I have presented in my paper is sufficiently different from current CWD causative theory to create a bit of a stir. Perhaps 95% of the scientific community has subscribed to "prions" as being the causative agent of all TSE diseases, which has helped spread "prion hysteria" all over the world. A small group of scientists, myself included, believe prions are a symptom of the disease and do not cause the disease.

Babesiasis (babesia) is a tick-born, parasitic disease of mammals caused by protozoa. The disease is characterized by high fever, anemia and reddened urine. Many discussions of the disease also mention Lyme Disease, Anaplasmosis, Ehrlichiosis, Tick Fever, and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, as being similar to Babesiasis. Although different organisms cause each of these diseases, the common thread that connects them is that they are all pathogens that are spread by ticks. For this reason, they may be referred to as "Tick Fevers."
