Aren't we smarter than this? Cannot we do our own research rather than believe this stuff? Right or wrong in his ideas, this doctor self-promotes himself, and cites himself as a leading authority rather than subjecting his work to the objective reviews of his peers. This is strictly his opinion; the opinion of one. I refuse to think of this type of diatribe as an article, one which would be subject to standards of collections of facts or of being published in the AMJ or other reputable journals for review and critique.
He is also on the Canadian Quackery Watch
He reminds me of the "doctors" pushing "Colloidal Silver." I'm not one who desires to turn blue!
Conspiracy theories abound as quoted from Dr. Horowitz' opinion piece cited:
"Rather than a public health emergency, the “Severe AcuteRespiratory Syndrome,” generally called SARS, is best diagnosed as a “Sickening and Repulsive Scam.” Lessons from this hyped urgency are relevant to the Avian Flu. This article argues that these unprecedented viral attacks are, alternatively, an ingenious evolving social experiment featuring institutionalized bioterrorism for widespread psycho-social control. The outcome of this experiment, and the predicted Avian Flu, whether it leads to depopulation or not, largely depends on your grassroots activism. ..." He refers to SARS as a government-engineered, "biological agent that will facilitate decimation of approximately a third to half of the world’s population, in keeping with current official population reduction objectives."
Oh, please, spare me!
