SARS Quiz: Test Your Level of Intelligence

Author of the national bestselling book
Emerging Viruses: AIDS & Ebola—Nature, Accident or Intentional?
It is April, have
we not been fools?
Last year, didn't more than 36,000 people die of the flu in the U.S.?
Weren't they, almost all, elderly or very young?
Weren't these victims, almost all, immune compromised?
Had not the major source of their weakened immunity been drug side
effects and vaccine-induced toxicity and autoimmunity?
Why was there nearly no mention about this widespread mortality from flu
in previous years, compared to SARS this year, which to date (April 16,
2003) has killed no one in America?
Alternatively, with zero deaths in the U.S. from SARS thus far, why has
so much media attention focused on this newest microscopic
Why hasn't the mainstream media asked these simple questions?
Why are SARS "cases"
SARS mortality rates grossly overstated and mixed-up in the
For instance, why are "confirmed" and "suspected" SARS cases grouped
together in most news reports, when the majority of "suspected" "cases
turn out to be something other than SARS?
Why would public health officials, who know better, go along with the
false and misleading 4% death rate from SARS errantly established on this
inappropriate summing of "confirmed" and "suspected" SARS
Why would epidemiologically trained public health officials completely
disregard the thousands, if not millions, of other people who got
SARS—people who never reported their illness and naturally healed without
quarantine, hospitalization, or expensive drugs?
Wouldn't an honest projection of the SARS mortality rate seem miniscule
Wouldn't that make the economic incentive from SARS seem miniscule and
Would SARS's irrelevance help or harm newspaper sales?
Would miniscule mortality rates help or harm health officials attempting
to justify their existence and increase their budgets?
Speaking of money, if contraindications and side effects of ribaviron
abound, and it has never been tested against the SARS-strain of
coronavirus to begin with, then why has it been recommended and
prescribed by those claiming "authority" since the beginning of the SARS
Is it true that
conservatively 10 percent of Americans are psychologically and/or
pharmacologically predisposed to developing debilitating phobias with
potentially deadly social dysfunctions resulting from their
Is this mentally challenged population placed at highest risk from
mass-mediated fear campaigns?
Is it likely that more of these 27 million people in the U.S. alone have
suffered horribly from the SARS fright than those who have gotten
Is it likely far more of these people have died from phobia-induced
avoidance behaviors, like avoiding outside (i.e, social) contacts,
including life-saving services, in the wake of SARS coverage by the
Don't public health officials realize this as they "surf the SARS wave t
Likewise, does this SARS fright reflect irresponsible
Is there a specialty fiel
of science in public health and journalism known as "risk
Does a Google search on the Internet reveal about 2,780,000 "risk
communication" references with recommendations as to how to communicate
risks most efficiently without: a) harming the public; b) creating
phobias, and c) reinforcing irrational fears?
Doesn't every public health official learn about this field of science
known as "risk communication" during their professional
Doesn't risk communication in public health, such as applied in the field
of AIDS education, seek to reduce irrational fears?
Hasn't every public health professional with media spokesperson
responsibilities been made keenly aware of the need to communicate health
risks honestly and appropriately with this being the intended
Haven't experts in behavioral science and public health developed "risk
communication" protocols to assure the public is able to
accurately assess risks to their personal health from infectious diseases
among other threats?
Why has the entire field of "risk communication" in public health, along
with full honest disclosure, been completely neglected in-so-far-as SARS
Level 5: Genius Level
If far more than 99.99% o
people infected with SARS get well on their own, how did they manage to
do that without government involvement?
If these people's healthy immune systems are primarily responsible for
their speedy recoveries, with all the warnings issued regarding SARS, why
haven't our officials published a variety of practical immune boosting
Is it true that both fear and stress reduces natural immunity to
infectious diseases like SARS?
Is it true that herbal cures for coronavirus infections were published in
the scientific literature in 1995?
Is it true that government authorities have neglected to mention this
Logically, then, if government health experts know all of the above, are
fueling fears while neglecting practical solutions, doesn't it seem as
though they are actively increasing public risks and death
Given the above, doesn't "criminal negligence" and "public health
malpractice" best describe government officials' actions in response to
SARS, thus far?
Does less than 3% of America's annual health budget go to
Does a "stitch in time save nine?"
"Is there a fox in the henhouse?"
Is the third leading cause of death in the U.S. prescribed by doctors and
Aren't these the first people you think of seeing when you get
If yes, are you mentally ill?
Answers: All "Yes" or "No" questions (except for the last
two) are definitively affirmative. If you got them correct, then there's
hope for you. For the other questions, your guess is as good as mine . .
. April fools.

Wielding a Big Stick, Carefully, Against SARS
By DONALD G. McNEIL Jr.
Public health generally doesn't go swinging the heavy hand of the law," Dr.
Colin D'Cunha, the chief medical officer of Ontario, said recently, after
asking an estimated 10,000 Canadians to put themselves in voluntary
quarantine to stop the spread of severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS.
"By nature, we're not police persons. We believe in being reasonable. But
we'll take steps if we need to."
Despite his mild words, extraordinary powers are available to Dr. D'Cunha, as
they are to public health officials around the world. The authority to
declare quarantines to stop the spread of disease is no less sweeping today
than it was for Dr. Cyrus Hudson, the New York City health commissioner
during the cholera outbreak of 1892, who told a Congressional committee, "If
we see fit, we may take possession of the City Hall forcibly and turn it into
a contagious-disease hospital."

SARS: Sewage Acquired Respiratory Syndrome.
Read whole story at: http://www.SarsTravel.com/sars_bubble.htm
In Hong Kong also on 17th April, Health Secretary Dr. Yeoh Eng-kiong
said the mass outbreak at the Amoy Gardens apartment complex began
after a SARS-infected man who also had diarrhea visited his brother there
between March 14 and March 19.
Most of the 321 infected residents in the Amoy Gardens complex probably
picked up the virus in their bathrooms, according to the Secretary for
Health. Large amounts of human waste carrying the virus went into the
sewage system and leaked into apartments connected by toilet pipes.
A report prepared by Hongkong health authorities said that under-floor
U-traps such as those in bathroom floors were dry in most cases. This
would have allowed air from decomposing fecal matter to waft into
The moist conditions there allowed water droplets containing the virus to
form, the report said. Bathroom extractor fans then spread the virus into the
apartments. Most of the SARS cases were in vertically linked flats in a single
building, Block E.
Media reports have described Amoy Gardens as a lower middle class
housing estate. But the sanitation system rendered it effectively a slum with
conditions which rivaled those in Middle Ages.
In other words, the first headline-grabbing high-profile mass-infection
so-called SARS incident arose from the oldest disease source known
to mankind: exposed human excrement.

Independent Dublin based journalist

the alternative health website SickOfDoctors.com Fintan Dunne has compiled an
impressive list of articles & interviews that offer welcome
from the current fear & hysteria being whipped up over

For example, the recent pronouncement by a W.H.O. official that
is the cause of SARS, was not based on the normal peer-review process of
science, but on a single study of unknown scope and methodology."
The director of one of the World Health Organization's global

According to Plummer "The proportion of our samples

week that about 60% were showing the virus by PCR test; now
"Of course, the case definition of SARS is a
loose," said Plummer "but many of the Toronto cases are
epidemiologically linked, and we are finding some of the
