Re: Digest Number 32
The only real way you will be able to prove or disprove the theory
of Vets being inoculated and getting HCV, would be to find a soldier(s)
who died before any other injuries, blood transfusions, tattoos, etc.,
and do a DNA test on the body. It may not be absolute proof, but, if the
HCV screen comes back positive and there is a viral load, it would go a
longer way towards making the connection.
You have to be hamped in trying to get this info because once you
prove there is a connection, (which I believe there is), the litigation
and responsibility will destroy many people in the government. Frankly,
the litigation alone would probably be enough to bankrupt the US, and
the resulting financial collapse would put us in a depression. Remember,
the parties responsible would go throughout all military, the Red Cross,
and, depending on how many major Universities were involved, would hit
them as well. Which ever drug manufacturer prepared the vaccine would
also have a liability, etc.
What I am not sure of is why no one has filed a class action suit to
explore this stuff. This will make HIV look like a picnic. I am sure the
evidence is out there is one were to look, and really want to find the
- Dear Patricia:
It was only the sharing of needles, but it was the "snorting" of
coke and other drugs. They are very irritating to the nasal membrances
and frequently caused "nose bleeds". If someone was infected and used
the same "straw" or similar instrument, they would have snorted up the
drug and any blood dropplets. Thus becoming infected.
There are still many issues we do not know. Sexual transmission has
not really been a factor, and that is unusual, especially during the 60s
and 70s. If it were simply circulating, as in HIV III, then exposure
should have showed up in any person who did not use protection. This is
not limited to homosexuals, but would include any anal sex of any type
between two people, oral sex should be a high transmission factor, etc.
Yet that is not the case. There are many unanswered issues and even
more questions to be asked. Marty
- Corey- i think everyhepper C should take the Hep A & B vaccines. The
last thing your liver needs is another virus. I have had the vaccines
with no adverse effects. This was afetr a long tal with an hepatologist.
