"Perhaps the most interesting epidemiological studies conducted during the 1918–1919 pandemic were the human experiments conducted by the Public Health Service and the U.S. Navy under the supervision of Milton Rosenau on Gallops Island, the quarantine station in Boston Harbor, and on Angel Island, its counterpart in San Francisco. The experiment began with 100 volunteers from the Navy who had no history of influenza. Rosenau was the first to report on the experiments conducted at Gallops Island in November and December 1918.69 His first volunteers received first one strain and then several strains of Pfeiffer's bacillus by spray and swab into their noses and throats and then into their eyes. When that procedure failed to produce disease, others were inoculated with mixtures of other organisms isolated from the throats and noses of influenza patients. Next, some volunteers received injections of blood from influenza patients. Finally, 13 of the volunteers were taken into an influenza ward and exposed to 10 influenza patients each. Each volunteer was to shake hands with each patient, to talk with him at close range, and to permit him to cough directly into his face. None of the volunteers in these experiments developed influenza. Rosenau was clearly puzzled, and he cautioned against drawing conclusions from negative results. He ended his article in JAMA with a telling acknowledgement: “We entered the outbreak with a notion that we knew the cause of the disease, and were quite sure we knew how it was transmitted from person to person. Perhaps, if we have learned anything, it is that we are not quite sure what we know about the disease.”69 (p. 313)
The research conducted at Angel Island and that continued in early 1919 in Boston broadened this research by inoculating with the Mathers streptococcus and by including a search for filter-passing agents, but it produced similar negative results.70–72 It seemed that what was acknowledged to be one of the most contagious of communicable diseases could not be transferred under experimental conditions."
Wondering what you folks thought about this, and the idea of terrain vs germ in general...
Interesting read from over a century ago!!
I would say terrain all the way, and as cliche as it is, most people are just dis-eased.
In a world where we are bombarded with artificial light, radio, cell phone, wifi, 5g, among countless other frequencies around us, combined with being stacked ontop of eachother like legos, most people are over stimulated and over stressed, as well as consuming poison in every orifice, wether it be toxic fear porn on TV and radio, or degeneracy promoted in mainstream music/movies (violence, sex, drugs), or maybe junk "food", although im hard pressed to call it "food", to pornography or any other thing that people consume, not just with our mouths alone. I think there is a massive ammount of negativity pushed into peoples life, and the declined mental health as well as physical and spiritual states of most, are out of whack with nature.
When you do a fast, meditation, yoga, cleansing rituals (ayahuasca, sananga, rapeh), and regularly exercise healthy habits from reading to eating to working out to getting sunlight, your health problems seem to just vanish.
Seems like a giant scam to make all the individuals lose all the power and trust they had in the immune system designed in the image of the creator, (or creation), and put faith into pharma/doctors, stripping people of even more power and making them depend on a pill in a box to make them "feel better", instead of fixing the root issue and BEING/living better.
Recently watched a film "Root Cause", detailing some interesting info regarding root canals/dentistry and mortality..

I agree completely. Germ theory is bogus.
It fosters a victim mentality.
Your disease is YOUR disease.
