Pleomorphism article

Where I can find your excellent article on pleomorphism, in which you talked about Louis Pasteur and the Germ Theory of Medicine. I would like to reread it and I can't seem to find it again. I don't see that you have a search option built in to your website.

I changed that article completely to correspond with the fact that pleomorphism, as proposed by Enderlein, has been proven not to exist. Enderlein had an elegant system but he had no definitive way to test it. Now we have DNA analysis and pleomorphism as Enderlein conceived it is history. Nevertheless pleomorphism lives in the form of pathogens which shed their cell walls to become "cell wall deficient organisms" (or "L forms") which escape detection by the immune system. An example of this is what happens to the Lyme organism (Borellia boriensis) when it becomes chronic. The spirochete lives within white cells without a cell wall. The cell wall is what the immune system depends on to identify and destroy a pathogen. As to a search option, see those words at the upper left: "Search This Site?"
