CDC Warns of ‘Steep Increase in Cases’ as Deadly Meat Allergy Syndrome Spreads

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a warning after recording a “steep increase in cases” of deadly meat allergies.

The CDC issued an alert about alpha-gal syndrome (AGS) as cases are rapidly spreading throughout America.

AGS is a type of food allergy that makes people allergic to red meat and other dairy products.

In the United States, the condition usually begins with the bite of the Lone Star tick, according to the Mayo Clinic.

The bite transfers a sugar molecule called alpha-gal into the body.

This triggers a reaction from the body’s defenses, also called the immune system.

It causes mild to severe allergic reactions to red meat, such as beef, pork, or lamb.

It also can cause reactions to other foods that come from mammals, such as dairy products or gelatins.

In some cases, the allergies are deadly

There is no known cure for AGS and the allergies are permanent.

The only treatment is to avoid consuming meat and dairy products.

A rare meat allergy from tick bites is rising and may have already impacted as many as 450,000 people,” the CDC warns.

The federal health agency confirms that the CDC has recorded a “steep increase in cases of alpha-gal syndrome (AGS).”

According to the CDC, the rapidly increasing cases of AGS are an “emerging public health concern.”

The lone star tick is thought to transmit several other diseases besides AGS, including Lyme disease.

It uses thick underbrush or high grass to attach to its victim and can be found in wooded areas as well as areas between grassy and forested ecosystems.

However, the ticks have been found in new areas outside of their normal range.

According to the CDC:

“The number of suspected AGS cases in the United States has increased substantially since 2010, and states with established populations of lone star ticks are most affected, although suspected AGS cases were also identified in areas outside of this tick’s range.”

Because some of these ticks prey on deer, they can be transferred across state lines to new environments as herds migrate.

Unlike allergies to other foods, which are usually immediate, AGS reactions can occur 3 to 6 hours after eating red meat.

The allergic reactions can often be severe life-threatening anaphylaxis responses.

AGS symptoms can range from mild to severe and include a rash, hives, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, shortness of breath, stomach pain, and heartburn.

According to Dr. Johanna Salzer:

“The burden of alpha-gal syndrome in the United States could be substantial given the large percentage of cases suspected to be going undiagnosed due to non-specific and inconsistent symptoms.”

Currently, there is a lack of clinical awareness among doctors.

However, if AGS is suspected there is a blood test that looks for specific antibodies to alpha-gal.

A CDC survey found that 42% of 1,500 US healthcare professionals had never heard of AGS.

35% also said they were “not too confident” in their ability to diagnose it.

Just 5% said they were “very confident.”

Between 2010 and 2022, about 110,000 cases of AGS have been officially diagnosed, but the true number of AGS cases may be as high as 450,000.

Those with suspected AGS are mainly in Arkansas, Kentucky, Missouri, and Suffolk County, on New York’s Long Island, but there are also focal clusters of cases in areas where there are no known established populations of lone star ticks, such as Minnesota and Wisconsin.

The geographic distribution of AGS is very similar to that of ehrlichiosis, a bacterial infection known to be transmitted by the lone star tick.

AGS has now been reported on all continents except Antarctica, and at least eight tick species are confirmed or suspected culprits.

The news comes amid increasing calls for humans to stop eating meat and dairy products to “save the planet” from the alleged “climate crisis.”

As Slay News recently reported, Dr. Matthew Liao, a bioethicist linked to the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) green agenda, has openly discussed how AGS could be used to “fight climate change.”

At the 2016 World Science Festival, Liao explained a plan for the genetic engineering of humans to “address climate change.”

He openly advocated for artificially inducing a red meat allergy in the entire human population.

Liao suggested using an analog of the alpha-gal molecule found in the lone star tick to make the human race fatally allergic to meat and dairy products.

He argued that his plan would force the public to fight “climate change” because “people are not willing to give up meat.”

“People eat too much meat,” he told attendees at the event during a panel discussion on addressing climate change.”

“And if they were to cut down on their consumption of meat, then it would actually really help the planet.

“But people are not willing to give up meat,” he acknowledged.

“Some people will be willing to, but other people – they may be willing to but they have a weakness of will.”

He postulated that human engineering could be used to make people intolerant to certain kinds of meat, or to certain kinds of bovine proteins:

“There’s this thing called the Lone Star tick where if it bites you, you will become allergic to meat…

“So that’s something we can do through human engineering.

“We can possibly address really big world problems through human engineering.”


Liao’s work has become a cornerstone of the WEF’s agenda and is frequently cited by the unelected globalist organization’s members during discussions regarding the green agenda, Klaus Schwab’s “Great Reset,” and “population control.”

Meanwhile, we know that genetically engineered mosquitoes have already been released in Florida and Texas.

There are also plans to release more in California.

The mosquitoes are being released even against the wishes of many residents and environmental groups.

There’s no informed consent for populations being exposed to this massive experiment.

Some researchers have referred to these mosquitoes as “small flying syringes” as they are being released to spread “vaccines.”

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and his Foundation are heavily invested in the GM mosquito project.

The Gates Foundation has invested over $30 million in Oxitec, the biotech company releasing the “flying syringes.”

The move has led to increasing concerns about the spread of viruses.

Locally acquired malaria has been non-existent in the US for the last 20 years.

However, five such cases have recently been diagnosed since the mosquito project was launched – four in Florida and one in Texas.

Rather conveniently, Gates is also heavily invested in the newly emerging lab-grown “meat” industry.

Gates insists that his fake meat products help to fight climate change and meet the globalist “Net Zero” goals.

But as Slay News previously reported, a study found that lab-grown “meat” is 25 times more harmful to the environment than real beef from cattle.

Meanwhile, Democrat President Joe Biden’s administration is waging war on the agriculture industry as Democrats across the country move to ban meat and dairy products.

Biden’s “climate czar” John Kerry recently declared that America’s farmers are standing in the way of the country complying with “Net Zero” goals.

Kerry is demanding that farmers stop growing food in order to lower “emissions.”

In an effort led by Kerry, the Biden admin recently agreed to join twelve other nations in cracking down on the farming industry, as Slay News reported.

The thirteen nations signing the Global Methane Pledge are among the largest meat and dairy producers in the world.
