The Bird Flu Breakdown: Two Children in Vietnam

This article was originally published in May of 2006 at It is presented here with updates noted under the section titled “Modified Specifics.” This was research I did concurrently with the initial publication, but was not able to wrangle into the first writing. – LS 2/2011

– flu survivors in Vietnam

The much anticipated bird-flu plague has yet to emerge, despite much hue and cry. This comes as no surprise to those of us who are familiar with the machinations of the WHO (World Health Organization), CDC and NIH, and their pharmaceutical partners.

But, for those more trusting of public health authorities who wish to know more about the making of public health policy, I thought I’d review some of the bright and shiny inconsistencies that have come into view on the bird flu.

Stray Cats and Chinamen

In March, 2006, The Associated Press reported: “In Austria, state authorities said Monday that three cats have tested positive for the deadly strain of bird flu in the country’s first reported case of the disease spreading to an animal other than a bird.”

The report quoted the World Health Organization (WHO), which said that “bird flu poses a greater challenge to the world than any infectious disease, including AIDS…”

Really? Bigger than AIDS? Who knew? But why would it be so? Because three cats in Austria tested positive? What does that mean? How many cats, in all of Austria, did they test? What would happen if you tested every cat?

How about every bird? How about every person? Do we know how many people actually have tested positive for bird flu? Maybe a dozen? A couple hundred?

How about millions.

Polio Notes:

1. Polio is Toxic Poisoning

The Industrial Age was marked by a constant stream of injury and accident, poisoning of the human population by metals, arsenic, and a dozen toxic compounds used in new industry. Chemical poisoning, not ‘viruses’ are the major cause of illness in the modern world: Continue reading Rethinking Polio

HIV, The Happy Exosome

“HIV” – A Case of Mistaken Identity, Political Profiteering, and Pharmaceutical Murder

What is AIDS

The AIDS mainstream butters its significant pile of bread with the notion that there is in existence a single particle, which they call “HIV,” which is known to do one thing, and that is to “kill T-Cells.” But behind the public pronouncements of HIV-AIDS-sex-panic-mania, the details in the published research paint a different, and frankly more interesting picture.

The mainstream will tell you that AIDS is caused by HIV, and HIV is the cause of AIDS; and you’re left with a tautology – a circular definition that doesn’t define either term.

In real-world use, AIDS is “immune deficiency,” and it’s real enough, but is has no one cause. AIDS is a brand name for fatal poverty in the ‘third’ world, and for major drug abuse, and the attending illnesses, in the West.

HIV, too, is a kind of brand name. This time, for a group of laboratory artifacts and events; a collection of proteins drawn from experiments with leukemia cells, that were mixed with tissue that came from gay men who were sick. Continue reading HIV, The Happy Exosome
