Have you ever heard of a disease called Kuru? It was discovered in Papua New Guinea in the 1950s to be present among cannibal tribes. The symptoms of the disease itself are almost as frightening as how it was believed to be contracted. In the second stage of the disease the carriers are said to be sedentary, emotionally unstable and depressed. Yet they suffer from uncontrollable outbursts of laughter.

The theory is that Kuru did not come from simple cannibalism but more likely from consumption of the human brain.

The dysmorphism evident in the infection rates — kuru was 8 to 9 times more prevalent in women and children than in men at its peak — is because, while the men of the village took the choice cuts, the women and children would eat the rest of the body, including the brain, where the prion particles were particularly concentrated.

As you may have gathered, Kuru is transmitted through those prion particles that are concentrated heavily in the human brain.

This would certainly put all of those beheadings into a brand new light wouldn't it?

Leave it to these monsters to use the skull of a fallen enemy as their own personal fondue pot.

Shoebat.com reports:

Its called Kuru, an extremely rare disease which virtually became extinct after extinguishing cannibalism in Papua New Guinea. Amazingly Kuru has now been found in 8 to 20 people, out of all places, in war-torn Syria, and the only way it could have come about, doctors confirmed, is through cannibalism and the consumption of human brain, 
as first reported by Arabian news source Zaman al-Wasal and substantiated by Orient News Television.


Two of the infected were sent from Syria to a hosptial in Ghazi Antab in Turkey for further examination to only be transferred to another hospital in Germany. One of the two already died, since Kuru is 100% fatal. Kuru is contagious and has symptoms of skin ulcers and worms, and according to a piece on the New York Times,

Kuru is a very rare disease. It is caused by an infectious protein (prion) found in contaminated human brain tissue.

Kuru is found among people from New Guinea who practiced a form of cannibalism in which they ate the brains of dead people as part of a funeral ritual.

One of the infected men in the German hospital was confirmed to have eaten human flesh, and he eventually died. When the Turkish hospital was asked on the details of the cannibalism case, they refrained from saying anything.

Moreover, the Free Syrian Army said they will be doing an investigation on the cannibalism case, and this sparks a hunch as to what their intentions are behind this.

Overall, there are 8 to 20 cases of Kuru in Syria; Kuru strictly is caused by cannibalism, and cannibalism was involved from the report on what took place in the German hospital.

In past studies, it was established that in the area of Fore in Papua New Guinea, Kuru was transmitted due to "ritualistic mortuary cannibalism."

Ritualistic cannibalism is not out of the question. Most of our readers have probably seen the video of the Free Syrian Army soldier (a.k.a. Syrian Rebels) cutting out and biting into his enemy's heart.

Do we have a group of ritualistic rebels who are actually consuming human brains?

It would certainly seem to be the case.

When you read a story like this, and come to realize it's true, what does it make you think?

It simply makes me think that evil is real and very much alive in this world.

I have no idea how people can take Barack Obama, John Kerry and John McCain seriously. How can anyone support these monsters in Syria? The fact that a large percentage of our population is still on the side of stupidity leads me to believe that we have our fair share of zombies in America.

Wake up people, before it's too late.

I leave you with a documentary on Kuru for those who would like to learn more about the history of this fatal disease.
