About the Book

If one follows public pronouncements, the world is repeatedly afflicted with new terrible virus diseases. As the latest horror variant, the so-called coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 dominated the headlines. The population is also terrified by reports of measles, swine flu, SARS, BSE, AIDS or polio. However, the authors of "Virus Mania," investigative journalist Torsten Engelbrecht, Dr. Claus Köhnlein, MD, Dr. Samantha Bailey, MD, and Dr. Stefano Scoglio, BSc PhD, show that this fear mongering is unfounded and that virus mayhem ignores basic scientific facts: The existence, the pathogenicity and the deadly effects of these agents have never been proven.

The book "Virus Mania will also outline how modern medicine has pushed direct detection methods aside and uses dubious indirect tools to prove the existence of viruses such as antibody tests and the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The alleged viruses may be, in fact, also be seen as particles produced by the cells themselves as a consequence of certain stress factors such as drugs. These particles are then "picked up" by antibody and PCR tests and mistakenly interpreted as epidemic-causing viruses.

The aim of this book is to steer the discussion back to a real scientific debate and put medicine back on the path of an impartial analysis of the facts. Engelbrecht, Köhnlein, Bailey and Scoglio will analyze all real causes of the illnesses named COVID-19, avian flu, AIDS or Spanish flu, among them pharmaceuticals, lifestyle drugs, pesticides, heavy metals, pollution, malnutrition and stress. All of these can heavily damage the body of humans and animals and even kill them.

To substantiate these claims, the authors cite dozens of highly renowned scientists, among them the Nobel laureates Kary Mullis, Barbara McClintock, Walter Gilbert and Sir Frank Macfarlane Burnet as well as microbiologist and Pulitzer Prize winner René Dubos. The book presents more than 1,400 solid scientific references.

The topic of "Virus Mania" is of pivotal significance. Drug makers and top scientists rake in enormous sums of money by attacking germs and the media boosts its audience ratings and circulations with sensationalized reporting (the coverage of the New York Times and Der Spiegel are specifically analyzed). Individuals pay the highest price of all, without getting what they deserve and need most to maintain health: enlightenment about the real causes and true necessities for prevention and cure of their illnesses.

Praise for "Virus Mania"

"The book 'Virus Mania' has been written with the care of a master-craftsman, courageously evaluating the medical establishment, the corporate elites and the powerful government funding institutions. It is the result of expert knowledge and great attention to details. I am editing standard medical textbooks myself, so Iesteem the decades of efforts needed to research and write a book like this."
Wolfgang Weuffen († 2013), MD, Professor of Microbiology and Infectious Epidemiology

"The book 'Virus-Wahn' can be  called the first work in which the errors, frauds and general  misinformations being spread by official bodies about  doubtful or non-virus infections are completely exposed."
Gordon T. Stewart († 2016), MD, professor of public health and former WHO advisor
