Why has the truth about the growing Chronic Fatigue Syndrome epidemic been hidden from the public?
What are the CDC and NIH afraid of?
Are they afraid of public panic? Are they afraid that they will be sued for malpractice and lose their credibility?
Why have millions of people who have so-called Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, an obviously contagious illness that is often called "Non-HIV AIDS," been neglected and lied to? Why have their lives been ruined? Why have they been gaslighted by dishonest scientists who pretend their sometimes-fatal illness is all in their heads?
In this second volume of his brilliant history of the intertwined Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and AIDS epidemics, Charles Ortleb provides a detailed roadmap to the personalities and events that contributed to the biggest scientific and political cover-up of our time. Ortleb paints a picture of government malfeasance that will remind readers of Vietnam and Watergate.
Ortleb takes the reader back to ground zero at the CDC when the first mistakes that led to the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome disaster were made by researchers James Curran, Donald Francis, Mary Guinan and James Mason. Ortleb analyzes the cognitive bias and incompetence that prevented the early AIDS researchers from seeing the connection between Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, AIDS, and the virus that HIV fraud was hiding: HHV-6.
Ortleb identifies Anthony Fauci as a virtual Bernie Madoff who has been running a scientific Ponzi scheme that has hidden the truth about the relationship of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, HHV-6, and AIDS. Ortleb argues that Fauci's cover-up of the truth about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome began in earnest at the 1992 Amsterdam AIDS conference when the first cases of AIDS without HIV emerged. Many of those cases were Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Fauci used his power as Director of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases to conceal the connection between Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, HHV-6, and AIDS for almost four decades. Fauci won't even talk about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome because it threatens to reveal that everything he has told the public about the AIDS epidemic is false.
Ortleb also explores the role that disgraced AIDS researcher Robert Gallo played in creating the fraudulent paradigm of AIDS that has concealed the truth about Chronic Fatigue Syndrome from the public. Together with Anthony Fauci, Gallo has helped create a sociopathic pseudoscientific universe in which anyone who dares to tell the truth about AIDS, HHV-6, or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is virtually destroyed.
In the final section of the book, Ortleb covers the criticisms of scientists who tried, but failed, to blow the whistle on the massive HIV fraud that led to the cover-up of the HHV-6 epidemic which now includes Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, multiple sclerosis, autism, Alzheimer's, and many other immunological illnesses and cancers.
For decades, Ortleb has been criticized and mocked for focusing his journalism on HHV-6. But that is now changing. Ortleb's reporting on HHV-6's role in multiple diseases was recently vindicated by this statement from the University of Wurzburg: "While HHV-6 was long believed to have no negative impact on human health, scientists today increasingly suspect the virus of causing various diseases such as multiple sclerosis or chronic fatigue syndrome. Recent studies even suggest that HHV-6 might play a role in the pathogenesis of several diseases of the central nervous system such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression or Alzheimer's."
