  BIO-terrorism is not ART, or: my flu and television
Every disadvantage has its advantages (famous statement by Dutch old soccerplayer Johan Cruyff), so because of a fever i didn't go join my happy iraqi-arabix class; instead i watched a documentary on television with the hypothesis about the origins of the HIV-virus in connection to the development of a Polio-vaccin. According to this docu the HIV-virus must have come to existence in contacts between humans and the genetically strong alike chimpanzees, that were infected with the to the HIV connected SIV-virus. The circumstances of that contact are insecure. In conversations with experts 'The origins of Aids' unfolds the hypothesis that the HIV-virus was created by people at the end of the 1950's in Africa, during the developments and experiments with vaccinations of a vaccin against Polio in Africa's Congo, and by an other scientist in Kazachstan and surroundings, involving roughly more than 6million people. Investigative journalist Edward Hooper concluded this in his book The River, which was jeered at on a scientific conference (Royal Society Discussion Meeting) in the year 2000 in London. The question is if the control over one disease created the rise of the other disease?

And another question is: does this story discredit polio-vaccinations?
This all makes me think of: John Le Carre's book: The Constant Gardener
And it makes me wonder where the bird-flu will take us.
What are the big corporate drug companies doing?
I don't feel so well today: i am going to read the Donald Duck!
