The word ‘virus’ comes from the Latin for a poisonous liquid, and before that from the Sanskrit for the same. Introduction

"Most people believe that every disease on the following list has an infectious cause: HIV/AIDS, SARS, West Nile, Mad Cow, CJD and other Spongiform Encephalopathies, Foot and Mouth, Hepatitis C, Polio, Avian Flu, & the 1918 ‘Spanish’ Flu. There is considerable scientific evidence that these disease do not just have non-infectious co-factors, but that they are almost entirely non-infectious."---David Crowe

"Viruses and bacteria are not the sole cause of infectious disease, there is something else" ---Rene Dubois, Professor of Microbiology.

"Could the increase in all forms of meningitis and other infectious disease complications and deaths be because for the last 40+ years, the first thing parents do at the slightest sign of temperature is push paracetamol?  I believe so."--Hilary Butler (VRAN Newsletter Jan-March 2003)

"The whole area of effects caused by toxic chemicals is murky, because the medical cartel does not want to implicate certain corporations in crimes of magnitude. And because the medical boys are always on the prowl for germs. And because many toxic chemicals turn out to be medicines."--Jon Rappoport

Epidemiological and toxicological data suggest that chronic intoxication's are the real cause for the named diseases AIDS, Hep C and BSE. Why these plausible hypothesis aren´t investigated further, this is a topic one could write a book about which could have the title "conflicts of interests".
Infection hypotheses can help making billions of dollars:
    1. The antibody business: Millions of screening tests are distributed, each blood sample needs to be tested (4 millions in Germany alone)
    2. The therapy business: Antiviral medication, 3 or 4 or 5 fold combinations, AIDS can´t be topped in this department.
    3. Possibly vaccinations: Here, however, the concept of the new big plagues gets in the way of itself, because this has brought up the central paradox of immunology. Since the beginning of HIV they have told us: He who has antibodies to HIV, will die, instead of, he who has antibodies to HIV will live, which would meet our vaccination concepts. How many HIV antibody negative individuals would like to get vaccinated, in order to have antibodies to HIV afterwards?
    With intoxication hypotheses on the other hand you cannot make any money at all. The simple message is: Avoid the poison and you won´t get sick. Such hypotheses are counterproductive insofar as the toxins (drugs, alcohol, pills, phosmet) bring high revenues. The conflict of interests is not resolvable: What virologist who does directly profit millions from their patent rights of the HIV or HCV tests (Montagnier, Simon Wain-Hobsen, Robin Weiss, Robert Gallo) can risk to take even one look in the other direction.
    What physician who has treated AIDS or hepatitis C patients over many years in good faith in the virus hypothesis and with high personal input, can look in the other direction? BSE/AIDS/Hepatitis C Infectious or Intoxication Diseases? By Claus Köhnlein

AIDS  [See: Pharmaceutical AIDS.]
"AIDS (is) not infectious--but caused by recreational and anti-HIV drugs."---Peter H. Duesberg, Ph.D. is a professor of molecular and cell biology at the University of California, Berkeley. http://WWW.DUESBERG.COM/

"Prior to October of 1997, I believed that HIV was the cause of AIDS based solely on the information that had been reported by the United States Center for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC) and the AIDS establishment. However, my view was unquestionably changed when I evaluated the medical evidence on the worldwide AIDS epidemic. My findings clearly show: 1) The HIV-hypothesis is not supported by any medical fact and AIDS is caused by agents and factors other than HIV. 2) The proponents of the HIV-hypothesis have long overlooked crucial and essential medical evidence that clearly describes the real causes of AIDS. 3) The results of clinical studies on AZT, protease inhibitors, and nevirapine indicate that these agents can cause severe systemic damage, AIDS, and death."----Mohammed A. Al-Bayati

Baby milk  [See: Breastfeeding  & Bottle-feeding.]
Compared to breastfed babies, bottlefed babies are twice as likely to die from any cause in the first six weeks of life. In particular, bottlefeeding raises the risk of SIDS (sudden infant death syndrome) by two to five times. Bottlefed babies are also at a significantly higher risk of ending up in hospital with a range of infections. They are, for instance, five times more likely to be admitted to hospital suffering from gastroenteritis. Suck On This by Pat Thomas 

The immunologist (Catharina Svanborg) had logged hundreds of lab hours documenting ways in which human milk helps babies fight infections........... They applied breast milk to the cancerous lung cells, and all the cells died.     [pdf] Milk Therapy

BSE, CJD   [See: BSE, CJD]
Science has made a monumental blunder. Mad cow disease— bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or BSE—is not an infection spread by a pathogen, that is, a virus or a bacteria. It is a naturally occurring degenerative disease—a disease of old age— that is accelerated by toxic poisoning."----Dr Anthony and Benjamin Parish

But if a toxin can speed up the outbreak of a disease, like alcohol can contribute to liver diseases, then it can also be the sole cause. However, if Phosmet would be declared as cause of BSE, compensation lawsuits in billions would wait for both the British government and the manufacturer of the insecticide. This is certainly not desirable for them, so they prefer to surround the basically clear context in a fog of prions.
    Intoxication hypotheses are easily testable and in contrast to the virus or prion hypotheses also falsifiable. They can be examined toxicologically and epidemiologically and then we can either accept or reject them. BSE/AIDS/Hepatitis C Infectious or Intoxication Diseases? By Claus Köhnlein

"The levels of manganese are naturally low in the soils of the Quinaborough area but the point is that the surrounding farmers are spraying on a potent manganese fertiliser several times a year. There is also widespread application of sewage sludge around all the villages that have a variant CJD problem. Manganese is also at a high level in sewage and it becomes air borne during spreading operations. Villages will therefore be breathing in these various manganese substances and taking it straight into their brains via the nasal/olfactory route."--Mark Purdey

"Science has made a monumental blunder. Mad cow disease— bovine spongiform encephalopathy, or BSE—is not an infection spread by a pathogen, that is, a virus or a bacteria. It is a naturally occurring degenerative disease—a disease of old age— that is accelerated by toxic poisoning."----Dr Anthony and Benjamin Parish

"There are more explosive implications to his -and other's latest research.   Purdey says similar organophosphate-induced protein deformation could also underlie Alzheimer's and related diseases. If that were true, the litigation fallout would destroy some pharmaceutical giants, and a lot of very influential noses would be out of joint.  In 1996, leading Alzheimer's researcher Tsunao Saitoh, 46 and his 13 -year-old daughter were killed in La Jolla, California, in what a Reuters report described as a "very professionally done" shooting.  What Alzheimer's Disease, Mad Cow Disease, and CJD have in common, is abnormal brain proteins and a putative link to organophosphates."---Fintan Dunne

I said to myself: "This is a professional hit. This is not a random killing by muggers." (My judgement was later borne out by a Reuters report [5/11/96, San Diego] which called the double murder "very professionally done.") I was also becoming familiar with violence against scientists and others victims who were all involved in one way or another with abnormal brain proteins. Some of them implicated a chemical in Mad Cow Disease and its species-transmissible form, including the human version, CJD. Purdey's house was burned down and his lawyer who was working with him on Mad Cow Disease had been driven off the road by another vehicle and subsequently died. The veterinarian on the case also died in a car crash. Purdey's new lawyer, too, had a car accident, but not fatal. Dr. C. Bruton, a CJD specialist -- who had just produced a paper on the a new strain of CJD -- was killed in a car crash before his work was announced to the public. Purdey speculates that Bruton might have known more than what was revealed in his paper. PROFESSIONAL HIT ON SAITOH, WORLD CLASS SCIENTIST!  By Claire W. Gilbert, Ph.D

I'M APPALLED by the unfounded assumptions of 'experts' about the hyper-infectious nature of the BSE/CJD agent (Mail). Basic evidence suggests variant CJD didn't arise from eating BSE-affected cattle. Third World countries imported even greater quantities of the incriminated British meat than we consumed here, but no cases of vCJD have occurred in those countries. I've travelled worldwide carrying out analyses of areas with prion diseases, of which vCJD is one. These diseases increase only in areas with a high manganese/low copper imbalance. Experiments at Cambridge and Case Western, Cleveland, universities confirmed my findings that misshapen prions develop whenever brain cells are exposed to this imbalance.
I found one organophosphate — poured on cows to counteract warble fly and on humans for headlice — which bonded with copper in the brain, starving the prion protein of its copper partner. When this happens, foreign metals, such as manganese, are more likely to bond with prions, which can have devastating consequences. Manganese is increasing in the environment due to its use as a fertiliser and fungicide, a lead substitute in petrol, and emission from factories. It was fed to UK cattle in calf milk replacement powder (at levels up to 1,000 times higher than in normal cow's milk) and as supplements for bone growth. Manganese is also fed to humans (in health food supplements), deer (for antler growth) and cats —and all have had prion disease. The totalitarian mindset about the origins of prion diseases betrays an agenda. It's more about global profits for the GM soya protein empires than about the illusory health risks of animal proteins to humans.

Hepatitis:  [See: Antibiotic induced hepatitis citations]
"The germ theory of disease is such an incredibly stupid notion! It's like saying that flies cause manure piles and firemen cause fires. Doesn't anyone ever wonder why the doctors never "catch" all this stuff? In over thirty years of clinical practice I have never seen an infectious hepatitis "caught" by another member of a household and believe me when I say I really looked high and low for one of those. If I found one I would look for a source of the poisoning, not for a germ or a virus. The authors are victims of the germ theory propaganda that has about 85% of the world's "educated" population under its control"--- Dr Daniel H Duffy Sr DC Geneva, Ohio

"It became clear, also, what's happening in the field of hepatitis. They are not dealing with a virus. Of course, there's a possibility to enrich certain kinds of proteins in blood products, which then cause severe autoimmune reactions, but only in very stressed-out people, never in non-stressed people. When they learned to take out these proteins from the blood products, or dilute them, there are not hepatic problems anymore.....there's no such thing as infectious hepatitis (and no hepatitis viruses)."--Dr Lanka

BSE/AIDS/Hepatitis C: Infectious or Intoxication Diseases?

"In North Africa (WWII)  there was an extremely high incidence of liver affections, almost invariably called "infectious hepatitis." There is no way to be certain that this diagnosis is accurate except that, as indicated by its name, it is transmissible. In the presence of actual cases of this type, and there is no doubt that there were many, the occurrence of another type of liver damage would readily be overlooked. Actually, as Dr. F. M. Pottenger, Jr., has found, there is excellent evidence that a great many of these cases were actually DDT hepatitis."---Morton Biskind MD. (Statement on Clinical Intoxication From DDT and Other Insecticides)

Legionaires Disease   [See: Legionaires Disease]


See: Drug related measles deaths citations

"Diseases such as chickenpox or measles can be very serious or even fatal in both children and adults who take this drug (Deltason/Orasone--generic name Prednison, a steroid)."--PDR

"About half the deaths from measles in the past were in children with illnesses like leukemia who could not be immunised because of the suppression of their immune system by disease or therapies such as anti-cancer drugs and steroids."--Paul Ince, Prof of neuropathology, Sheffield University

"Lack of zinc prevents normal release of vitamin A from the liver...Low blood zinc concentrations have been found in...TB, Crohn's Disease, lung infection...many drugs cause excessive excretion of the element.  These include...corticosteroids."---Dr Len Mervyn's Minerals and Your Health (p98)

Meningitis  [See: Meningitis quotes]
"In the towns with meningitis clusters, there were almost 50% more prescriptions for antibiotics and nine times more case of the killer disease than in the low-incidence" towns.  One antibiotic drug, erythromycin, which is marketed under a variety of brand name and is used as a routine treatment for sore throats appeard with mysterious frequency or the prescriptions. It was being used up to four times more often in the towns with the serious meningitis problem than in the other towns."--Media 1996

Raptiva, a medication prescribed to treat Psoriasis, can cause viral infections. This is admitted by Raptiva's manufacturer, Genentech, and has been confirmed by the FDA. Indeed, the link between Raptiva and viral infections is so clear that Genentech recently agreed to withdraw all of the Raptiva on the U.S. market, based on the viral infections diagnosed in Raptiva patients in America and around the world.  Prescribed to treat psoriasis, Raptiva (efalizumab) is an injectable medication that is known to increase the risk of developing severe, life-threatening infections, including: bacterial sepsis (a blood infection), invasive fungal disease, progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy/ PML (a type of Raptiva brain infection in which the white matter of the brain swells), viral meningitis (an infection that causes inflammation of the brain and/or spinal cord).
    While Raptiva brain infections (specifically Raptiva PML infections and meningitis) are the most deadly side effects, any of the above conditions will be fatal without emergency medical care.

"A young woman had contracted a seemingly life-threatening meningitis three times within a year. She had no other signs of infection, and each time a series of tests was unable to determine the cause. It turned out to be a violent allergic reaction to the pain-killer ibuprofen (brand names: Apsifen Brufen Cuprofen Fenbid Inoven Motrin Nurofen  Proflex.-------The list of medications associated with DIAM (Drug Induced Aseptic Meningitis) includes antibiotics (Cotrimoxazole, Trimethoprim, Sulfamethoxazole), human immune globulins, chemotherapeutic agents such as Cytarabin and also miscellaneous drugs such as Carbamazepine, radiographic agents, some vaccines or Muromonab-CD3."----Ibuprofen Induced Meningitis

"Could the increase in all forms of meningitis and other infectious disease complications and deaths be because for the last 40+ years, the first thing parents do at the slightest sign of temperature is push paracetamol?  I believe so."--Hilary Butler (VRAN Newsletter Jan-March 2003)

"Meningitis is not a transmissable disease, we do not "catch" it from one another. My first lesson in vaccine propaganda is when I learned, back in the forties, that the "epidemics" of meningitis amongst miltitary recruits were not epidemics but clusters, and the second thing I learned was that only the freshly vaccinated recruits "caught" meningitis. The mess sargeant didn't, the drill sargeant didn't, only the recruits did. Not even the girls who worked at the base exchanges and service clubs, with whom the recruits played kissy face "caught" meningitis - only the freshly vaccinated recruits "caught" it.......In over thirty years of clinical practice I have never seen an infectious hepatitis "caught" by another member of a household and believe me when I say I really looked high and low for one of those. If I found one I would look for a source of the poisoning, not for a germ or a virus"---Daniel H Duffy Sr. DC  also

"When notifications of meningitis (from MMR vaccine) from physicians were included; when the vaccine records of hospital cases of meningitis were included; when cross linkage of vaccine records from laboratory reports (4 laboratories) was performed and included the figure was increased to 1 in 11,000. It should be noted that in the case of one particular laboratory, this was 1 in 4,000. "----- Paul Shattock and Dawn Savery,  Autism Research Unit, University of Sunderland, Sunderland, UK.

"When I heard about the 14 year old boy who died of group C meningitis I remember wondering how soon beforehand he had had his BCG vaccination (another vaccine with a ‘live’ organism)."---DrJayne L M Donegan

"Every time you hear of the tragic death of an infant, carried off in the first weeks of life by ‘viral meningitis’, you have the right to suspect that BCG is at work, even if the autopsy confirms a viral diagnosis. My wife lived through this tragedy in a major Swiss hospital where she worked. The autopsy of the child revealed the tubercular nature of the ‘viral’ meningitis following a BCG inoculation, but all the assistants and nurses had received very clear instructions to say nothing or risk terrible consequences. As with all secret societies, the law of silence is absolute among doctors!"--Dr Jean Elmiger (Rediscovering Real Medicine ISBN 1862041997)

Polio:  [See: Provocation polio, Post polio syndrome, DDT is good for me!]
"Today, various other forms of the the word "polio" are still used to describe the effects of poisoning, though usually with regard to paralysis in animals. A search of Medline ("polio" and "poison") finds about 45 contemporary articles where poisoning causality is attributed to polio. The terminology found was: "polioencephalomalacia", "poliomyelomalacia", "polyradiculoneuritis", "neurological picture similar to that of poliomyelitis", "polioencephalomyelomalacia", "lumbal poliomyelomalacia", "cerebrocortical necrosis (polioencephalomalacia)", "Lead poisoning in grey-headed fruit bats (Pteropus poliocephalus)", "multifocal-poliomyelomalacia", "spinal poliomalacia", "Polio and high-sulfate diets", "Atypical porcine enterovirus encephalomyelitis: possible interraction between enteroviruses and arsenicals", "Polioencephalomalacia and photosensitization associated with Kochia scoparia consumption in range cattle", "bovine polioencephalomalacia". ---Jim West, Health and Research Publications,

When I dug back further, to the origins of virology and the great hunt for the poliovirus, I found the story was scandalously much the same. Powerful evidence was presented to Congress linking the summer polio epidemics to summer-used heavy metal pesticides. These scientists suggested remedies, reported curing polio – and were ignored. Instead parents were told to be scared of a yet undiscovered virus. Today thousands of children are still being identically paralysed in regions where such pesticides are heavily used – but all the World Health Organization (WHO) says is: ‘Don’t worry; we have nearly exterminated the dreaded poliovirus. We have checked. The paralysed children were not infected by it.’ As for childhood vaccinations, surely they have proved a great benefit? Introduction

"They sprayed towns, crops and orchards with deadly poison DDT insecticide, suggesting that polio might be caused by flies. The chemical companies reaped the benefits but the orchards were seriously damaged, crops were ruined and people were killed by this wild and unwarranted experiment. An article on polio in "Your Health" magazine (1954, Fall Quarter, p. 69) comments on the fly situation by saying that in "Iceland where there are no flies . . there have been polio epidemics. Experiments on eliminating flies by spraying whole communities with DDT have not had any effect in combating epidemics."---Eleanor McBean

"A quarter-century ago, I began my doctoral research in a lab that studied how to create poliomyelitis in mice without any poliovirus: by manipulating the junk DNA with toxic chemicals or radiation. GWS has convinced me that these same interactions of toxic exposures and chronic diseases occur in humans as well. So, the clues are now telling us that the cause of chronic diseases is the JUNK genome, not the germs."--Testimony of Howard B. Urnovitz, Ph.D. (1/24/02)

"When the population is exposed to a chemical agent known to produce in animals lesions in the spinal cord resembling those in human polio, and thereafter the latter disease increases sharply in incidence and maintains its epidemic character year after year, is it unreasonable to suspect an etiologic relationship?"---Biskind.

Pesticides and Polio

Common chemical poisons that cause polio by Eleanor McBean

"Dr. Abraham Gelperin, director of the Bureau of Communicatable Diseases and assistant Clinical Professor or Public Health at Yale University stated flatly that he believes many ills to be the result of these poison insecticide and that large numbers of what are believed to be polio are in reality cases of poisoning, possibly caused by something like parathion."--E. McBean

Spanish Flu   [See: Spanish Flu]
"The 1918 flu epidemic followed the dumping on the commercial market of wargas chemicals, and these were used as preservatives in grain silos, in lubricants, etc.   They cause "flu-like symptoms".  Chloroform was used in cough syrups.  Chloroform oxidizes to form phosgene, an extremely deadly chemical. This dumping of DDT, etc, was done also at the end of WWII."---Jim West ( )

"It was a common expression during the war that "more soldiers were killed by vaccine shots than by shots from enemy guns."--E. McBean

"The 1918 'Spanish Flu' started in American military Camp Funston, Fort Riley, USA amongst troops making ready for W.W.I - taking on board vaccinations, recruit training and all. It eventually killed about 40,000,000 people worldwide. That flu strain only appeared briefly once again, according to the US Atlanta CDC. This was in 1976 and again it struck at the US army camp Fort Dix, USA, amongst recently vaccinated troops (and no one else EVER); Fort Dix is known to have been a vaccine trial centre. Was the world's greatest 'influenza' scourge another well-hidden vaccine disaster?"---John P Heptonstall

West Nile Virus  [See: West Nile Virus]
"The official West Nile virus paradigm actually does make political sense. After all, you can't expect Mayor Giuliani to say, "Thousands of birds are falling from the sky because of petrochemical emissions in Jersey, illegal emissions, major airport take-off lanes over residential zones, congested automobile traffic, and gasoline with 15% MTBE, which is a poison and neurotoxic precursor. Air pollution has triggered the deaths of birds already burdened with pesticides, mercury, and lead residues. If you're a visiting tourist, chances are you'll be OK, and NYC loves your money. So, let's all pretend it's a deadly virus and endure a ritual of mind-numbing fear, dramatized by occasional unscheduled pesticide sprayings by helicopters over crowded streets and parks."--Jim West
