[back Viral fear racket

"Virus Mania is a social disease of our highly developed society. To cure it will require conquering fear, fear being the most deadly contagious virus, most efficiently transmitted by the media. Errare humanum est sed diabolicum preservare… (to err is human, but to preserve an error is diabolic)."----[2008] Virus Mania Foreword by Etienne de Harven

After obtaining his M.D. degree in 1953 from the Université Libre de Bruxelles, (where he later became "Professeur Agrégé" in Pathology), Etienne de Harven specialized in electron microscopy at the "Institut du Cancer" in Paris.
    In 1956, he joined Charlotte Friend's team at the Sloan Kettering Institute in New York, the largest cancer research center in the United States, where he was in charge of electron microscopy research. It was there that he produced the world's first description of a retrovirus budding on the surface of infected cells.
    In 1981, he was appointed Professor of pathology and laboratory director at the University of Toronto, Canada, where he researched the marking of antigens on the surface of lymphocytes.
Now retired, he is the President of Rethinking Aids, a group comprising over 2000 scientists and other re-thinkers who refute the viral origin of AIDS.

[2008] Virus Mania Foreword by Etienne de Harven

Research programs on Hepatitis C, BSE, SARS, Avian flu and current vaccination policies all developed along the same logic, that of maximizing financial profits. Whenever we try to understand how some highly questionable therapeutic policies have been recommended at the highest levels of public health authorities (WHO, CDC, RKI etc.), we frequently discover either embarrassing conflicts of interests, or the lack of essential control experiments, and always the strict rejection of any open debate with authoritative scientists presenting dissident views of the pathological processes. Manipulations of statistics, falsifications of clinical trials, dodging of drug toxicity tests have all been repeatedly documented. All have been swiftly covered up, and none have been able to, so far, disturb the cynical logic of today’s virus research business. [2008] Virus Mania Foreword by Etienne de Harven

Ten Lies About AIDS by Etienne De Harven, M.D. and Jean-Claude Roussez
This book falsifies ten lies that are the pillars of the HIV/AIDS dogma. These lies are that:
1 - AIDS is a new syndrome;
2 - The existence of HIV has been appropriately demonstrated;
3 - HIV is actually the cause of AIDS;
4 - Antiretroviral medications are helpful for AIDS sufferers;
5 - Seropositivity indicates an active process of HIV infection;
6 - AIDS is a contagious pathological process;
7 - HIV is responsible for numerous illnesses;
8 - It is better for people to know their serological HIV status;
9 - There is indeed an AIDS pandemic affecting the general population;
10 - All medical researchers agree, indisputably, that HIV is the cause of AIDS.
