Is germ theory terminally ill?
Covid Science, Germ theory / By Editorial Team / March 8, 2021
Germ theory has been with us for over a century. It has been responsible for a great leap in human health and well-being. Or has it?
The evidence keeps accumulating that, actually, while microbes certainly do exist, germ theory is often wrong and that it has been given credit that it doesn’t deserve. Even worse, our default position of assuming that germs are responsible for much of the illness that plagues mankind is in itself plaguing mankind.
So, if germ theory – “germs are the cause of most illness” – is true, how do we reconcile that with:
1) Scurvy, beri beri and pellagra were for many years a mystery to medicine. Eventually it became clear that they were related to vitamin deficiency. Nonetheless, even after the link to nutrition was established, the idea of a microbe causing scurvy was resurrected in the wake of Pasteur’s discoveries. (As a result, milk began to be pasteurized which resulted in scurvy becoming problematic once again.)
2) The curve depicting DDT usage and the curve depicting Polio cases match each other so closely it is hard to imagine that it is a mere correlation rather than a cause.
3) Vaccines take the credit for eliminating half a dozen diseases in the 20th century. However, in each case, the vaccines were introduced after these diseases had already mostly disappeared! (So, a better explanation is that improved hygiene and nutrition should get the credit, rather than vaccines.)
4) Koch’s postulates – common sense steps used to prove causality between a suspected pathogen and the supposed disease – have been abandoned by virology so that even if it were true that certain viruses exist there is still no evidence that they cause the diseases in question.
5) The HIV-AIDS hypothesis has been systematically destroyed by Peter Duesberg. For example, many people with AIDS do not have HIV and many people with HIV never get AIDS (violating Koch’s first and third postulates). Even more glaring is the fact that AIDS never spread outside of the initial population, showing that contagion is not a factor in AIDS and thus the idea of a virus causing AIDS is untenable.
6) The HIV test – in the case of AIDS – and the test supposedly detecting SARS-Cov-2 – in the case of Covid – do not detect viruses. They only use indirect evidence that is assumed to be related to a virus. (Finding a horn, for example, is not proof of the existence of unicorns.) Also, there is no other way of detecting the viruses in question, so there is no gold standard to use to ensure the “test” is correct.
7) Though vaccinations are still being given for the measles, the high court in Germany has ruled that there is no evidence of the existence of a measles virus.
8) In the lead up to the Covid panic Neil Ferguson predicted as many as 2.2 million deaths in the USA and as many as half-a-million deaths in the UK from Covid. Despite his own dire warnings, after he had tested positive for Covid, he had contact with his married lover who visited him during the lockdown. If he really believed his own prediction, such behavior would have seriously endangered his girlfriend and her husband. So, one can only wonder if he believed his own predictions.
9) The scientific paper that provided the underpinnings for the Covid panic, the Corman-Drosten paper, makes the statement that their aim was to create a test for the virus even though they had no samples of the virus.
10) Conclusion: Based on all this, it seems reasonable to question the idea that viruses are a great plague to mankind.
In the case of Covid, while there seems to be some evidence that there are “excess deaths” in 2020, the amount seems small enough to question even the existence of a new disease at all. A better explanation seems to be the re-branding of flu, pneumonia, and even heart disease and cancer as Covid cases. Even if there is a new disease, the burden is on the scientific community to prove that a virus is the cause. Otherwise, we run the risk of making things worse. This is what happened when the erroneous HIV-AIDS hypothesis led to treatment with the drug AZT which had the unfortunate effect of causing the same symptoms that are associated with AIDS.
