In 2009 I won the German Alternative Media Award for my article "The Amalgam Controversy".

"Rationality ex post facto. - Whatever lives long is gradually so saturated with reason that its irrational origins become improbable. Does not almost every accurate history of the origin of something sound paradoxical and sacrilegious to our feelings? Doesn't the good historian contradict all the time?"

What is missing for the flawless proof that HIV, H5N1, SARS-CoV-2 etc. are viruses that enter the body from outside and cause illness – and what world-famous researchers like Luc Montagnier have to say
My main journalistic work is the book "Virus Mania"  (Co-Autor: Dr. med. Claus Köhnlein; German edition: "Virus-Wahn"). Wolfgang Weuffen († 2013), professor of medicine and specialist in microbiology and infection epidemiology, said about this: "The book is masterfully and courageously written." An important thesis in it is that there is no evidence that the particles that have been given names like HIV, H5N1 or SARS-CoV-2 are disease-causing viruses – and that studies justify the conclusion that these particles may very well be of non-viral origin.

But why is there a lack of virus evidence? Mainly because the particles claimed to be viruses have not been completely purified in the relevant detection studies. However, such "purification" is an indispensable prerequisite for detecting viruses and creating valid antibody and PCR tests based on them. This is also stated by scientists who are among the most renowned in the world.

About the fact that particle purification is a basic requirement for virus detection, say for example:

White and Fenner: “It’s an essential pre-requisite.”
Luc Montagnier: “It is necessary.”
Robert Gallo: “You have to purify.”
Françoise Barré-Sinoussi: “... you have to purify the virus from all this mess.”
Jean-Claude Chermann: “Yes, of course… Absolutely.”
David Gordon: “It’s a natural step from obtaining the virus in cell culture to then obtain purified virus.”
Dominic Dwyer: “The purification, as far as one can go, is important in analysis of any virus or bacteria, for that matter well.”

And about the fact that particle purification is a basic requirement for the development of valid PCR and antibody tests, say for example:

White and Fenner: “… for the chemical analysis of viruses.” To prove that the virus particles have unique proteins and RNA.
Luc Montagnier: “… analysis of the proteins of the virus [obviously this also applies to the viral RNA, the genome] demands mass production and purification. It is necessary to do that... To prove that you have a real virus.”
Françoise Barré-Sinoussi: “It was important to prepare kits for antibody detection. Because we wanted these diagnosis kits to be as specific as possible. If you use a preparation of virus which is not purified of course you will detect antibody to everything, not only against the virus but also against all the proteins that are produced in the supernatant… Now when this virus is in this [cell culture] supernatant it’s not purified. Because the cells are releasing plenty of things, not only the virus... cellular proteins... so that means in the supernatant you have a mixture of everything, including the virus. Then you have to purify it… from all this mess.”
Jean-Claude Chermann: To identify the viral proteins and RNA one has to extract them “from the virus which we had concentrated and purified.”
Robert Gallo: “Conclusive serological testing, in our view, required finer, more specific assays based on using purified virus particles or proteins obtained from the virus instead of whole cells infected with virus”.
David Cooper: “Once the virus is purified, it’s then genetically sequenced and those sequences are unique [must be unique] just like every organism on the planet has unique sequences and markers.”
David Gordon: “… because purification of virus is then very useful for further studies for the nature of the virus and the nature of the immune response against the virus.”
Dominic Dwyer: “In the diagnostic sort of situation what that really is looking for is looking for presence of those conserved bits of genetic material that you know to be the pathogen, be it HIV or flu or whatever, you then use that technology to see whether those sequences or those bits are present in something else, in another clinical sample, for example. And that really now has become, you know, the main method of diagnosis of many pathogens in a laboratory now… I mean with genetic testing – I guess the upside of course is you can do it on everybody, it’s pretty cheap, it’s extremely reliable and robust, the downside is that you have to know the genetic structure to begin with, you have to have the genetic sequence of what you are after. So when a new virus emerges, like SARS, you can’t necessarily use, reliably, nucleic acid testing until you get the sequence of that new virus for the first time. So then in fact you are in a first identifier, you are required to use these more traditional methods of virus culture and microscopy and so on.”
Wan Beom Park: “In the outbreak situation, isolation of causative virus is indispensable for developing and evaluating diagnostic tools, therapeutics, and vaccine candidates.”
