When in doubt, blame a virus

2,3,7,8-Tetrachloro-dibenzo-para-dioxin — otherwise known as dioxin or TCDD — is one of the most toxic chemicals known to science. Nobody ever talks about it these days.

Whenever people get sick, a virus is the presumed cause and convicted without trial. No matter how many pesticides or herbicides are sprayed on our food, no matter how much GMO we are fed, or toxins we’re exposed to — such as dioxin, PCBs, or nuclear radiation, it’s always a virus.

No matter how many food additives, or aspartame, or high-fructose corn syrup, or plasticizers, or how much air pollution, or EMF radiation we get from all directions (3G, 4G, 5G, WiFi, Bluetooth and 100 others), it’s always a virus. Poisons stockpiled under the sink? Indoor air pollution? It must be a virus.

No matter how many medications we are prescribed and pile on, which all have “side” effects and most of which compromise the liver and the immune system, a virus is always the convenient thing to blame, immediately, without actual inquiry, the moment anyone gets sick with anything.

No matter how bad the water is, blame a virus. If the sky is covered with smog from factories, a virus must be what is making people sick.

Under this approach, the abundant toxins we consume are “proven” harmless. What this represents is denial of our toxic lifestyle, and blaming “nature” for problems that humans and in particular industry have caused. The virus never came from a lab, either. It all came from a bat who met a pangolin. Everything else is perfectly safe.
