(NaturalNews) At least 16 students from Le Roy Junior-Senior High School in Le Roy, N.Y., have now come down with a mystery illness very similar to Tourette syndrome that NaturalNews reported on just a few weeks ago. As the number of victims, almost all of which are female, continues to rise, medical authorities and scientists have resorted to blaming the illness symptoms on "conversion disorder," or mass hysteria.

When they do not know the cause of illness symptoms, scientists and medical authorities often claim patients are simply making up those symptoms. In this case, medical overlords are denying that girls who have developed mysterious tics and verbal outbursts are actually legitimately sick, but rather that they are simply spreading collective obsessional behavior to one another -- the victims are all making up their symptoms, in other words.

Even more absurd than this is allegations by a so-called expert from the University of Buffalo (UB) that the illness symptoms are a result of social networking sites like Facebook. WKBW News 7 in Buffalo, N.Y., reports that Dr. David Lichter, a professor of Neurology at UB has come out saying that all the affected students are simply mimicking one another's symptoms as they observe them on YouTube videos, for instance (http://www.wkbw.com/news/local/jac-leroy-138768339.html).

Both of these explanations are utter nonsense, and show a complete lack of scientific inquiry into the matter by mainstream talking heads. Rather than seek a legitimate investigation into the real cause of these girls' neurological problems, self-professing experts are simply dismissing the situation as a type of contagious behavioral trend birthed out of a need for attention.

Is natural gas 'fracking' to blame?

When we first reported on this story, the girls' symptoms -- there were only 12 girls at that time -- appeared oddly similar to those that manifest in some girls after receiving Merck & Co.'s Gardasil vaccine for HPV. And since all the victims at that time were girls, the situation seemed highly suspect that it could be related to vaccines.

New reports, however, now claim that authorities have ruled out Gardasil as a culprit, although nothing is confirmed. There is now one confirmed case of the mystery illness in a male student as well.

Some parents are demanding an investigation into various environmental factors that could be the culprit, including the six natural gas oil wells that were recently disclosed as being located on school property. Congresswoman Kathy Hochul, who represents the district, has reportedly sent a letter to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) seeking an investigation into the "Superfund" site where the wells exist. Local police, however, recently denied representatives of environmental activist Erin Brockovich access to the site to collect soil samples.
