    "Why doesn`t she just use a wire cutter to cut them off?"

    She claims that when she cuts them, they grow back full-length in a different place by the next day. Conveniently, they`re all in her abdomen, which she can easily reach. And this all happens in private.

    According to another report, whenever anyone attempts to trim any of the wires, the wire retreats and protrudes from another location. It also stated that an xray found over 40 wires inside her body and seemed to have the capability to move at will.

    This poo just gets more and more bizarre.

    All "fake" comments aside... is such a thing remotely possible? I mean... we do have metals in our body naturaly but at small doses (or you die), but steel?? Is it possible for any human condition to produce steel? I am not a doctor, but my estimation is "no".

    How is she producing the metal to create these spikes? To me, thats the weirdest thing. Even if she ate alot of metal enriched foods, it still wouldnt make enough to make those spikes I would think.

    Let`s just hope she isn`t some sick person who enjoys the attention and is jabbing herself with some cut up coat-hanger wire :-P

    The "doctor" is holding up a cross-sectional MRI of the woman. The only problem is that MRIs use intensely strong magnets so, if she were to get an MRI, those little steel wires would have been ripped right out of her skin. What a load of doo doo!

    If you bothered to be in a medical profession (which I am) and you looked and radio/stereo diagnostic images all day long, you would know that that is an MRI. XRays are not used to create cross section images like the one they are showing.

    PS, I`m not sure that I would trust the validity of any information which is being presented in an article about a woman who is growing metal bristles from her stomach ... a feat which is medically impossible since she would have long ago died from metal poisoning at the blood concentrations that would be required to produce such abnormalities. Not to mention that, if she was actually growing the bristles, blood concentrations aside, she would have also probably long ago contracted a form of tetanus since the metal would undoubtedly oxidize, creating a rough surface for the Clostridium tetani endospores to reside on and giving a perfect pathway for the bacteria and its neurotoxins to enter her system.

    she didnt say they were actualy steel just steel like. i think it must be some sort of keritin disorder the stuff that makes up our hair and fingernails. just like a rinocerous horn is made up of keritin. maybe the hairs that naturaly accur on ones body some how went hay wire on that section of her. so impossible maybe not, implauseable probably.

    Also, it is worth pointing out that in the picture of her abdomen, you will see 4 protrusions perfectly spaced from each other in straight line. If you look at your skin, you will notice the the pores are almost never perfectly aligned or distanced and it is virtually impossible for both perfect alignment and distancing of pores to occur, especially ones which are as apparently inflamed as hers. Also, it really doesn`t make sense that her skin is pulling in where the protrusions are occurring (whether steel or keratin). If anything, the surrounding tissue should be inflamed and distended. One last thing, steel is an amalgam of multiple metals. She can`t be extruding steel, unless she has a blast furnace under her skin or has developed a new type of enzyme that could force different metals to align and bind cohesively without intense heat. If that`s the case, than someone had better figure out how to extract the enzyme because they will be worth a lot of money real fast!

    Holy crap, this is a field day! The image shows what I believe to be the two bottom loabs of her lungs (the two white blobs). At the same location, you can see well over 20 protrusions. However, if you look at her picture, where the bottom of her lungs would be (right below her ... boobs), there are only about 5 protrusions. The image is clearly fake. As for keratin, I`ve seek keratin deposits in some weird places, but never ones which were the same color as these. Personally, by the fact that some are straight and some are curly, and by the fact the some look yellow/goldenish in color, I`m going to say that she`s sporting chopped up metal clothing hangars.

    OH MAN!!! You totally got me man... wow. Gosh how embarrassed am I?? I guess I will go back and re-read the article and jot down notes. Because some dumb whore with "steel-like" alien protrusions from her abdomen is worth my time.

    Don`t bother responding as I will be busy scrutinising this very important article. Thank you so much for the correction! I am gonna get some great sleep tonight.

    P.S. VIKINGGUY reffered to it as steel too... you had better jump on it. We need to educate these people on this important matter.

    As an epidemiologist, I have seen cases of what are reported as Morgellons syndrome. It`s an interesting syndrome, though it has not been officially classified as a disease since it has never been proven that the lesions and growths weren`t the result of a psychological problem (psychosomatic manifestation). In any case, whether or not Morgellons syndrome is real, that is not what this woman has...

    She has chopped up metal clothing hangers glued to her skin.

    its fake, you can tell by teh picture on the bottom of the page.
    the area around the "bristles" would suggest that they are being poked or stabbed into her skin, not comming out. the skin would bearly react if they were comming out of her skin, they would be reddish like a zit, not red/purple.

    Morgellon`s Syndrome is when organic fibers grow underneath and sometimes poke out of the skin, causing it to rash and make sores.

    This is not Morgellon`s.

    And if that`s an X-Ray, why is it a midslice of her abdomen? The last I recall, X-ray`s don`t exactly look like that...

    i work in a hospital and ive seen hundreds of xrays and MRI scans, and i can tell you that the picture the doctor is holding is neither..its a CT scan. plus, the magnet used in an MRI machine, although very powerful, would NOT pull anything out of the body,it would certainly cause discomfort,and distort the image, but it wouldnt rip anything out of the body.also, the article says the growths are steel like, not steel.in fact,it doesnt even say they are metal

    The magnet in an MRI, at many times the strength of the Earth`s magnetic field, is strong enough to rip large pieces of metal out of a patient`s body. There are many documented cases of such things happening. This is also why all gas canisters and liquid nitrogen / helium tanks that are within a certain distance to the MRI must be non-ferrous. Otherwise they will, and have, fly across the room and possibly crush a patient in `the tube.` As for being a CT, you may be right. My only reason for thinking that it`s not is that the bone density which is displaying in the picture, especially characteristic of a CT scan, does not quite match what you would expect. Perhaps it is an older machine with poor resolution. In any case, I still say it`s cut up hangars glued to her body.

    Gosh, you must be right. I`ve only seen tens of thousands of XRays, MRIs, CT, PET, ... scans and have never, in all that time, seen a cross sectional XRay (a feat which is impossible unless you can put the film directly though the patients abdomen ... ouch). Please, my apologies.
