From the December 2009 Idaho Observer:


An open letter to Professor John Oxford, world renowned influenza virologist

I am writing to you because you appear to be the UK expert on viruses and particularly on pandemic viruses such as bird flu H5N1 or swine flu H1N1. I first came across you on the TV show “Pandemic” broadcast on the BBC on Tuesday 7th November 2006. Since then I have heard you on Irish and British radio on a number of occasions.

I have a simple question for you: Can you name a scientific publication where a scientist has isolated, biochemically characterised and photographed the H1N1 virus or the H5N1 virus?

I’m sure you are aware of Dr Stefan Lanka from Klein-Klein-Aktion. He has published three papers concerning a virus he isolated called the ectocarpus silculosus virus. This virus is not pathogenic and neither are the millions of viruses that exist in just one liter of sea-water! The publications are listed below:

  1. Title: A Virus Infection in the Marine Brown Alga Ectocarpus siliculosus (Phaeophyceae) Authors: D.G. Müller, H. Kawai, B. Stache, and S. Lanka, Botanica Acta 103 (1990) 72-82
  2. Title: Genome Structure of a Virus Infecting the Marine Brown Alga Ectocarpus siliculosus Authors: Stefan T.J. LANKA, Michael KLEIN, Uwe RAMSPERGER, Dieter G. MÜLLER, and Rolf KNIPPERS, Virology 193, 802-811 (1993)
  3. Title: Coat Protein of the Ectocarpus siliculosus Virus, Authors: Michael KLEIN, Stefan T.J. LANKA, Rolf KNIPPERS, and Dieter G. MÜLLER; Virology 206, 520-526 (1995).

These scientific papers demonstrate the techniques Dr Lanka used to isolate this virus and are reproducible. In other words, if the H1N1 virus and the H5N1 virus actually do exist, you Professor Oxford should be able to either name a scientific publication proving their existence or isolate these viruses yourself using the techniques applied by Dr Lanka.

Kalpana Chauhan from the Customer Service Centre at the Department of Health in England provided me in July 2006 with some scientific papers which allegedly proved the existence of the mumps, measles and rubella viruses. Susanne Brix from Klein-Klein-Aktion examined these papers and nowhere do the authors of these papers claim to have isolated these viruses. This was pointed out to Kalpana Chauhan but she cut off our correspondence in August 2006.

These are the eight scientific papers provided by Kalpana Chauhan:

  1. Immuno-Electron Microscopy of the Morphogenesis of Mumps Virus.
  2. Hemadsorption of Mumps Virus Examined by Light and Electron Microscopy.
  3. Electron microscopy of the development of rubella virus in BHK-21 cells.
  4. Electron Microscopy of Monkey Kidney Cell Cultures Infected with RubellaVirus.
  5. Antibody-induced capping of measles virus antigens on plasma membrane studied by electron microscopy.
  6. Electron Microscopic Study on the Development of Measles Virus in Cultured Cells.
  7. Fine Structure of Cellular Inclusions in Measles Virus Infections.
  8. Observations of Measles Virus Infection of Cultured Human Cells: A study of Development and Spread of Virus Antigen by Means of Immunofluorescence.

    These scientific papers do not prove that the mumps, measles and rubella viruses actually exist. Perhaps Professor Oxford you can examine them yourself and I believe you will agree that these papers do not prove the existence of the mumps, measles and rubella viruses. Please do so.

    I have published all this correspondence in my book The Ultimate Conspiracy: The Biomedical Paradigm.

    Professor Oxford I accept that it is your opinion and that of your colleagues that pathogenic viruses such as H1N1 and H5N1 exist. I am now well aware of your expert opinion from your numerous TV and radio broadcasts. What I am interested is the primary evidence on which any expert such as you should base his opinion.

    As Lord Nimmo Smith said in an excellent judgment:

    “But however often a conclusion may be repeated, it is only as sound as the research on which it is based, and of this I have seen none.”

    If this primary evidence is readily available, as it should be, if the case for the existence of these pathogenic viruses is so self-evident, it should be possible for you Professor John Oxford to provide me and more importantly Dr Stefan Lanka with the relevant scientific publications. If you cannot do so, then you must publicly state why this is not possible.

    Why do we vaccinate against viruses that we cannot prove to exist, even though it is technically possible to isolate real viruses (which are harmless) and it would be also possible to isolate pathogenic viruses if they actually existed?

    However often Professor Oxford you proclaim about the dangers of pandemics caused by fictitious viruses your opinions and conclusions and assertions are only as strong as the research on which they are based.

    Please produce two primary references that you can publicly defend, where the H5N1 virus and H1N1 virus have been isolated, biochemically characterised and photographed.

    Yours Sincerely
