Academic medicine has been and is the most important pillar of support of all dictatorships and governments which do not want to submit to written law, to constitutions, to human rights, that is, to the democratically legitimized social contract.
– Virologist Dr. Stephan Lanka – Interview 10.27.2005
– flu survivors in Vietnam
Is there a bird flu pandemic? German virologist Dr. Stephan Lanka says no, and does so in detail. here
He makes some points that I’m sure will seem startling, but there’s a wonderfully no-nonsense, common-sense approach to his thinking (“Think for yourself, look into it yourself”), and a refreshing lack of fear-mongering.
We who have been bombarded with the threat of imminent doom from the health authorities will notice the important difference here:
Lanka isn’t trying to hypnotize you into believing that you have no control over your health, biology or being. He’s asking that we all think critically and thoughtfully for a change.
Those wishing to provide analysis or criticism are invited to bring their comments, politely. Bring your studies and be prepared to analyze methodology.

Interview by Christopher Ray 27.10.2005
Excerpts from the interview:
The Airborne Menace
”[We’re being asked to believe] that migratory birds in Asia have been infected with an extremely dangerous, deadly virus. These mortally diseased birds then keep flying for weeks on end. They fly thousands of kilometres, and then in Romania, in Turkey, Greece and elsewhere infect hens, geese or other poultry, with which they have had no contact, and which within a very short time get diseased and die.
But the migratory birds do not get diseased and do not die, but keep on flying, for weeks on end, thousands of kilometres. Anyone who believes this will also believe that babies are brought by the stork.”
Why are birds getting ill?
“Since the late 19th century, diseases of poultry in mass animal farming have been observed: Bluecolouring of the crest, decrease in egglaying performance, sagging of the feathers, and sometimes these animals die too. These diseases were called bird pest.
In present-day mass poultry farming, in particular when hens are being raised in cages, many animals die each day as a result of species-alien animal [factory] farming. After a time, these consequences of mass animal farming were no longer called bird pest, but bird flu.
So for decades, we have been told that a transferable virus is the cause of this, in order to deflect from the actual causes.
If one hen lays fewer eggs or gets a blue crest and that hen is tested H5N1-positive too, then all the other hens are gassed. That is how there got to be those 100 million apparently H5N1-killed hens.”
What did people who were suspected to have the bird flu die of?
“Persons with symptoms of a cold, who then had the bad luck to fall into the hands of H5N1 hunters, were killed with enormous amounts of chemotherapy [chemical pharmaceuticals] supposed to restrain the phantom virus. Isolated in plastic tents, surrounded by madmen in space suits, they died, in panicky fear, from multiple organ failures.”
What are viruses?
“In one litre of sea water, there are over 100 million viruses of various kinds very different from each other. (Fortunately, the health authorities and the doctors have not become aware of this, otherwise there since long would have been a law permitting sea bathing only for persons attired in total body condoms.)
“Structures which you can characterize as viruses exist in many species of bacteria and in simple life forms, similar to bacteria. They are elements of different cells living together in a common cell type that remains independent. This is called a symbiosis – an endosymbiosis – which has arisen in the course of the process of different cell types and structures combining; an endosymbiosis that has brought forth the present cell type, the type of cells which humans, animals and plants are made of.
Viruses, are component parts of the cell which have turned their entire metabolism over to the common cell and therefore can leave the cell. Outside the common cell, they are helping other cells, in that they are transferring construction and energy substances. Any other function of theirs has never been observed2.”
What about HIV?
“Not only I am maintaining that the so-called AIDS virus “HIV” has never been scientifically demonstrated to exist, but only is being maintained to exist because of a purported consensus3.”
Is there an H5N1 virus?
“If a virus coming directly from a body or a bodily fluid, for instance from birds, has been proved to exist, then any average scientist can check out, in any typical laboratory, within a day, whether this virus is present in the dead animal. This has never occurred. On the contrary, what is being used to prove viral existence are indirect test methods which tell absolutely nothing.”
“For instance, it’s being maintained that there are antibodies which attach to the body of the purported virus and only to that, so when there’s a reaction between a body and an antibody, the existence of the purported virus has been demonstrated.”
“In reality, those purported antibodies are soluble blood albumins, which play a central role in the structural integrity [“making tight”] of cells which are growing and dividing and in the healing of wounds.”
“These blood albumins, also called globulins, in a test-tube containing corresponding concentrations of acids and bases, minerals and solvents, will combine arbitrarily with other albumins. Thus you can make any sample taken from an animal or a person test arbitrarily positive or negative. This must be quite clearly said too – It’s complete and criminal wilfulness.”
What kills lab animals infected with H5N1?
“Concerning this too you only have to take a look at the publications in which these animal experiments are described. Hens are being slowly suffocated to death within three days by means of administering a fluid to them through the windpipe.
In small Java monkeys, 30 days before the purported infection, temperature transmitters are being placed in the abdomen; 5 days before the purported infection they are fixated in an air sub-pressure chamber and at the point of the so-called infection, an amount of liquid corresponding to 6 schnapps glasses for humans is pressed through the tube in the windpipe of these young animals.
Parts of the same extract from dying, that is putrefying, cell [cultures] is sprayed into both eyes and into the tonsils of the animals. In many cases, suffocation attacks are caused in the animals by means of rinsing the bronchial tubes, etc. The resulting damage and destruction is then presented as the result of H5N1.”
How can a layman check on this?
“It is being maintained that these short pieces of genetic material, which in the sense of genetics are not complete and which do not even suffice for defining a gene, together would make up the entire gene substance of an influenza virus.
In order to see through this swindle one only has to be able to add up the published length pieces, in order to ascertain that the sum of the lengths of the individual pieces do not make up the length of the idea of the genome of the influenza virus model.
Even simpler is to ask in what publication you can find the electron microscope photo of this supposedly reconstructed virus. There is no such publication.”
Does Tamiflu stop bird flu?
“Nobody maintains that this substance protects against a flu. Tamiflu is supposed to function as a neuraminidase restraining agent. It restrains in an organism the function of the sugar neuraminidase acid, which is co-responsible for the surface tension in the cells.
Those side effects which are noted on the instruction slips accompanying packages of Tamiflu are almost identical to the symptoms of a serious influenza. Thus, on a large scale, medicines are now being stored which cause precisely the same symptoms as those which appear in an actual so-called influenza.
If Tamiflu is administered to sick persons, then this is likely to cause far more serious symptoms than those of a serious influenza. If a pandemic is stated to exist, then many people will take this medicine at the same time. In that case we will actually have unequivocal symptoms of a Tamiflu epidemic. Then deaths caused by Tamiflu are to be expected, and this will then be presented as evidence of the dangerous nature of the bird flu and evidence of how anxious the state is that people should be in good health.”
How do we address these issues?
“Anyone who waits for the pharmaceutical industry to do something for the good of people concerning this will wait in vain. “Wer sich jetzt nicht wehrt, der lebt verkehrt” – “You don’t now put up a defense? Your life won’t have the right sense.”
Anyone can ask the Ministry for Consumer Protection, the Ministry for Public Health etc for that scientific proof which would justify the bird flu panic.
Anyone who waits for “the others” to do something should not wonder why nothing is done and why the situation gets much worse. In the final instance we, the citizens, stand behind this, in that we for years have done nothing about it, and have seen the whole madness around us and tolerated it. Here we must begin to take social responsibility, if we do not want to surrender and sacrifice ourselves to the total domination and chaos of an uncontrolled pseudoscience.”
