Dear Dr Weil,
Since you phoned me in France early August, I've been re-examining my
website to find
just where I may have offended any of your people or caused them some concern.
Well, there are surprisingly many: religious, cultural, political,
economic, genetic, and others.
In every case, my arguments were put forth logically and respectfully and should not have
offended anyone ready to listen to another side. There are two reasons I'm always polite:
1. One must always be polite. 2. I could be dead wrong!
I have two sites that have elicited some angry comments:
"SIDS" page, about 10 persons have been offended at
my comments on the goings-on
at "SIDS Guilds" smoke-filled meetings where distraught SIDS parents are bombarded with
sales pitches for costly monitoring devices, while refusing to hear about Dr. Archie
Kalokerinos' success with vitamin C.
And on my
"Dalai Lama/Harrer" page,
I'm defending Prof. Harrer who made, only in hindsight,
a poor decision back in 1938 to join Hitler's elite SS. [The German/Austrian press has been
trashing Harrer, a famous climber, athlete, and author ("Seven Years in Tibet" and others), for
his decision 60 years back, when he was a national hero - and just 26 years old.]
In any event, I'd be glad to reconsider any ideas you or your readers would care to discuss.
Speaking of changes, many of us were astounded at your 2nd
opinion on vitamin C intake.
We feel you could turn the clock back 30 years to the time when Irwin Stone, Linus Pauling,
and I, wrote books (around 1971) on the advantages of mega-C intake. Fred Klenner, back in
the '40s started it all. You can read his classic 1949 paper on my site at: www.nutri.com/49
It's a shame that your 2nd opinion, based on just a couple recent papers, might reverse the
progress of a half century.
Very respectfully yours,
