    What Caused The Tourette, Tics, Mystery Illness In Those Teenagers In New York?

    What was the mystery teen illness that caused verbal outbursts, in those girls from upstate New York? Have they figured it out yet? Is it a real illness?

    There is speculation that a chemical spill years ago on/near the school's property is the cause of these teens' problems. It's possible but nothing has been made certain, they are still investigating. I must say it does seem strange when school officials acted very defensive and told researchers and parents to leave school property when they tried to take soil samples.

    No one will ever know.  It is a medical myth that makes people believe medicine and science know the cause of disease or ailments. 

    Diagnoses and causes are nothing more than hypothesis also known as BEST GUESS.

    Speculation is all you will get.  Medicine can only speculate as to what caused the "mystery" illness the same as they can only speculate as to what causes high blood sugar often referred to as diabetes or what causes sores often referred to as herpes. 

    Because practicing medicine is nothing more than guessing it isn't any wonder why nothing get cured or prevented these days.  That is why humans are devolving while all other life is evolving.

    Best odds? Stress-related hysteria. If I recall correctly, it was a bunch of teenage girls and one boy. They psyched themselves out.
