Many thanks, TG, for the great info from the Spanish study. I am saving in my "treatment" vault.

I just read something of more than passing interest, an essay by Norman Lewis entitled "The Danger of Scientific Dogmatism."

It is mainly an introduction to the work of Robert Edgar Hope-Simpson, an English physician who won the Nobel Prize for his decades-long work that led to his discovery that shingles was caused by the same virus that causes chicken pox. You can read an interesting bio at Wiki. He was basically a country doctor. A very good one. He observed closely and kept records of patterns of illness in his patients and also carried out some studies in isolated island populations.

Hope-Simpson did a lot of deep thinking about how viruses are transmitted---namely, he hypothesized that since the influenza crops up in many places at once, it cannot be the result of human transmission in its active form. The virus must already be present in a dormant form and then be activated by various seasonal phenomena. Lewis points out that the covid orthodoxy has led to the sidelining of many potentially productive lines of inquiry, regarding esp. the numerous reports of the SARS-CoV-2 virus or of covid-similar outbreaks in disparate locations as early as 2019.

I hope this precis will motivate you and others to read the essay, as it is well written and, I believe, highly relevant to both the medical and the political situation. I guess you could call it "medicopolitical."
