Emerging Viruses: AIDS & Ebola by Leonard G. Horowitz, D.M.D., M.A., M.P.H.
Emerging Viruses: AIDS & Ebola by Dr. Horowitz is a fascinating and eye opening book. Everyone seems to ignorantly weigh in on the debate of vaccines being a good or bad thing. I myself and guilty of doing just that with confidence since I have fairly good health care knowledge working in a health care related field. As this book challenges the pervasive answer to the origin of HIV and Ebola the discussion gets very detailed on Bio weapons technology and history of such programs. It also dives into technologies and methods for development and manufacturing of vaccines, and of course virology. This ends up being a detailed and fascinating journey into these topics that will surely influence your view of the world.
The book presents a well supported case, , with detailed references, to the idea that some methods of vaccine technology using animal derived cell lines were clearly contaminated with retro virus particles before we understood them and how to detect them. And then there is the aspect of some of our top bio weapons researchers were the first to learn about this and certainly may have used some of this new knowledge to further some quite nasty bio weapons work manipulating deadly viruses.
The end result is the evidence that some of our worst retro virus diseases certainly appear to be unleashed on humans knowingly or by accident. Most would have never leapt from animals or any other source into humans without technology’s assistance.
Dr. Horowitz was led to his long journey because the places and timing of the first AIDS and Ebola outbreaks, and how they leaped to humans made no scientific sense to this Harvard trained medical scientist. This is a truly fascinating must read book! So as usual Hit The Books, They Don’t Hit Back!
