Beware the Blue M&M
Beware the Blue M&M
Beware the Blue M&M: What the Federal Government doesn't want you to know about the Blue M&M. (as related to me by Dr. Zurfeld T. Cunningham)

Disclaimer: This monograph makes no claims or accusations for or against the Mars Candy Corporation and or the federal government. This information is simply to inform and communicate the seriousness of this situation.

On first examination one would not consider this particular confection a detriment to ones current situation or well being. Upon further examination and reflection it is obviously apparent or apparently obvious that this delicious treat does contain a harbinger of ill will and suspect use by entities as of yet still unidentified. This hopefully brief monograph will elucidate some further insight into this serious conflagration sweeping the nation.

Historical Perspective
The blue m&m first made its debut 1994 after an erroneous marketing campaign purported to let the world “pick” a new color. Sources close to the Mars organization have revealed that this decision was destine from the beginning. This color substitution marketing campaign was created to reactivate an insidious program that was de-railed due to the controversial great Red Scare of the 1980's -- when fears of the carcinogenic properties of Red dye No. 5 led to a several-years-long wholesale removal of red M&M's from the M&M nation. Make no mistake, the ferocity in which this program was conceived, was and is still determined to fulfill its ultimate diabolical outcome. To that end the establishment of a new “chosen” color allowed for the infiltration of this clandestine program back into the mainstream of American and world society.

Unknown Questions
The fundamental question still remains, why would this “black ops” organization pursue such a nefarious operation? What motivates these shadowy individuals into action? Could it be Roswell or Area 51? This information as related to me by the ignominious Dr. Zurfeld T. Cunningham reveals a shocking look at what lengths this unknown organization is willing to go to in order to achieve their objective.

Creation and Operations
Blue M&Ms have been genetically altered, some reports say that illegal cloning technology was used, in order to provide elctro-bio-organic emanations that can track and record the movements of any citizen who unwittingly consumes these confections. Extensive use of geosynchronous satellite surveillance apparati and ground based down-linked communications listening posts are manned twenty four hours a day seven days a week three hundred and sixty-five days a year. A staff of unknown size has at their disposal endless computing resources in which to fulfill their ultimate goal. Additional resources are brought in by means of black helicopters when suspected “hot spots” are requiring closer examination. This Herculean effort has been undertaken under the guise of ensuring the health and welfare of the general citizenry when in actuality this program is striking at the very heart of our civilization.

By making use of this unassuming morsel individuals who consume the Blue M&M are currently being tracked and monitored by this rogue outfit. Purportedly the ultimate conundrum pursued by this organization is to ascertain to exact location of Elvis.
Knowing that “the King” reportedly had an aversion to “blue food” (credit here given to George Carlan) this operation is based upon the process of elimination. Having the ability to account for the whereabouts of an entire population will allow the commanders of this program to exactly pinpoint the exact location of their quarry.

Dateline January twenty seventh in the year of our lord two thousand and nine.

It has been several years since my last update. While my intent was not to leave the general populace uniformed I was unavoidably diverted and ultimately forced “underground” as the as of yet unknown nefarious organization became increasingly aware of my information gathering activities. Translation: I had to take it on the lamb before I got busted.
My apologies to those of you who I know have been waiting for an update to my research that will invariable further solidify the undeniable conclusion that Blue M&Ms ARE being used to a less than honorable outcome.

First of all I would beg your pardon and your indulgences as I feel the need to provide
an adequate accounting of my activities during my long hiatus. Having secured a sufficient amount of scientific and technical data from the esteemed Dr. Zurfeld I felt sufficiently equipped to begin my own individual investigations into this abhorrent enterprise.

I started my investigations at a little know installation code name I.C.A.R.U.S.
(Informational Control And Radius Usurpation Systems) situated in the quite country side in upstate New York near the unknowing inhabitants of a town named Romulus. This installation is, I found out at great peril to my personal well being, used to tap into and make use of the World Wide Web also known as the Internet purportedly invented by Al Gore. This installation was formerly used to house ICBMs during the cold war and now has been re-tasked as a major informational eavesdropping, tracking and identification operations center. (see Seneca Army Depot) Additionally, this site was also used in the development of the genchem (chemically altered genetics) Blue M&M itself. Evidence of this activity is still observable today in the entity know as truly unnatural Odocoileus virginianus (aka White Deer) and the potential radiation concentrations detected by the EPA. This devious installation pursues its’ clandestine operations under the guise of leasing “DARK” Fiber to extend their invisible tentacle throughout the United Sates.
Same blue dye in M&Ms linked to reducing spine injury
Story Highlights
Researchers find way to reduce secondary damage caused by spinal injuries

Compound BBG is similar to blue food dye used in sweets, sports drinks

Only side effect of intravenous injection was that it turned test rats blue

Researchers are planning to apply to the FDA for permission for human tests
(CNN) -- The same blue food dye found in M&Ms and Gatorade could be used to reduce damage caused by spine injuries, offering a better chance of recovery, according to new research.

Researchers at the University of Rochester Medical Center found that when they injected the compound Brilliant Blue G (BBG) into rats suffering spinal cord injuries, the rodents were able to walk again, albeit with a limp.

The only side effect was that the treated mice temporarily turned blue.

The results of the study, published in the "Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences," build on research conducted by the same center five years ago.

In August 2004, scientists revealed how Adenosine triphosphate, which is known as ATP and described as the "energy currency of life," surges to the spinal cord soon after injury occurs.

Researchers found that the sudden influx of ATP killed off healthy cells, making the initial injury far worse. But when they injected oxidized ATP into the injury, it was found to block the effect of ATP, allowing the injured rats to recover and walk again.

"While we achieved great results when oxidized ATP was injected directly into the spinal cord, this method would not be practical for use with spinal cord-injured patients," said lead researcher Maiken Nedergaard, professor of Neurosurgery and director of the Center for Translational Neuromedicine at the University of Rochester Medical Center.

"First, no one wants to put a needle into a spinal cord that has just been severely injured, so we knew we needed to find another way to quickly deliver an agent that would stop ATP from killing healthy motor neurons. Second, the compound we initially used, oxidized ATP, cannot be injected into the bloodstream because of its dangerous side effects."

Back in 2004, Nedergaard's team discovered that the spinal cord was rich in a molecule called P2X7, which is also known as "the death receptor" for its ability to allow ATP to latch onto motor neurons and send the signals which eventually kill them.

Nedergaard knew that BBG could thwart the function of P2X7, and its similarity to a blue food dye approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1982 gave her the confidence to test it intravenously.

It worked. The rats given BBG immediately after their injury could walk again with a limp. Those that didn't receive a dose never regained their mobility.

Nedergaard told CNN that there is currently no standard treatment for patients with spinal injury when they reach the hospital emergency room.

"Right now we only treat 15 percent of the patients we receive with steroids and many hospitals question if that even works for that 15 percent; it's a very moderate benefit to only a subset of patients. So right now 85 percent of patients are untreated," she said.

Nedergaard said the research team isn't claiming that BBG can cure spinal injuries, instead that it offers a potential improvement in patients' condition.

"Even a moderate improvement in functional performance of the patient is a big, big event for these patients," she said. "They can control their bladder. If they can just take small steps instead of sitting in a wheelchair all the time, it's a tremendous benefit for these patients," she added.

The dose must be administered immediately after the injury, before additional tissue dies as a result of the initial injury.

Researchers are currently pulling together an application to be lodged with the FDA to stage the first clinical trials of BBG on human patients.

"Our hope is that this work will lead to a practical, safe agent that can be given to patients shortly after injury, for the purpose of decreasing the secondary damage that we have to otherwise expect," said Steven Goldman, Chair of the University of Rochester Department of Neurology.

Talk about a surprise candy center.
An Atlanta woman has a bone to pick with the candy company Mars after she took a bite into her peanut M&M and says she discovered what a local biologist says is a vertebra from a small mammal.
J. Paulette Potts, who works for an advertising and public relations firm in downtown Atlanta, told FOXNews.com that last Friday she discovered the object encased inside a blue peanut M&M.
When her "teeth wouldn't go through it," Potts said she washed the chocolate off of the approximately inch-long object in the office sink and saw it certainly wasn't a peanut, an act FOXNews.com confirmed with several of her colleagues.
Potts is not currently pursuing a lawsuit against Mars, the global giant that owns M&Ms, but the issue kept gnawing at her, so on Tuesday she said she took the object to Professor Larry Blumer, director of environmental studies in the biology department of Morehouse College in Atlanta, for an examination.
"It's definitely bone, and it came from some type of mammal," Blumer told FOXNews.com. "This isn't [a] tail vertebra — it's something higher up, and the reason I'm certain for that is because it's hollow. The nerve cord would run through there."
Blumer could not identify exactly what type of animal the vertebra came from but said that, because of the smoothness of the material, it had likely been dead for some time.
"It doesn't look like there's even a remnant of flesh on this," Blumer said. "This has either been out in the environment for a while and it got into that container, or it went through some organism's digestive tract first. For example, you might find something like this in an owl pellet," Blumer said, referring to the indigestible material regurgitated by the animal.
On Wednesday upon learning of the incident, Mars issued a statement noting that food and product quality is of "paramount importance to Mars."
"We have already taken steps to ensure that the product in question is returned to us and evaluated. Since we are currently in the middle of this process, no conclusion has been reached at this time," the statement said, adding that all products are "tested through a series of strict internal processes, based on recognized international standards."
Potts said she bought the 1.74-ounce bag of candy from a deli near her office. After making her discovery, she said she contacted the company's customer service department and received a case number from a representative. She was later informed via telephone by another representative that a "'supervisor told me to tell you that was probably a peanut twig.'"
Potts is also awaiting a response from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which oversees food contamination complaints.
"I just want to follow this to its logical conclusion," she said.
Stephanie Kwisnek, a member of the FDA's press office, told FOXNews.com via e-mail, "The FDA takes every complaint it receives very seriously and looks into it."
Food safety in America has become a growing concern, especially after the mass peanut butter recall from the Peanut Corp. of America. The now-defunct company was pinpointed by the FDA as the source of contaminated peanut products that have sickened nearly 700 people across the country with salmonella in recent months.
A statement on the homepage for the Mars company Web site reads: "Mars products remain unaffected by FDA's expanded recall of peanut butter products. All Mars products are safe to consume."
Potts, who said several colleagues at her office witnessed the incident, hopes this will be a bone encounter of the last kind.
"I don't know what I was thinking when I bought peanut M&Ms," said Potts, who said she has not felt ill besides a temporary bout of nausea after discovering the object. "I just wanted some chocolate."
