That is your opinion. No one has yet proved the Science study to be faulty. No contamination has been found. Other studies are finding xmrv in tissues. Politics, not science is not about unanimous consensus. New ideas in science are not easily accepted, but rather belittled. If politics and egos could stay out of science, things would proceed a lot faster, but we all know that is not the case. I think that everyone should be allowed to have hope in whatever they choose. Patients do not need to be protected from the outworking of the scientific process. They do need to be protected from the politics and egos that do not have the patients' best interests at hand. We have different opinions, but ultimately the same goal, real treatment for those suffering. The science must go on because retroviruses have the potential to cause many chronic illnesses. This could be a real watershed moment for science and humanity.
