Steve believes, Bert, that all his political statments are
true science. If Pauling can be as severely criticized as he
was, then anyone can. Rational research into vitamins and other
foods which cannot be patented and sold on prescription will be
ridiculed by the medical-industrial establishment forever. If
the medical establishment could ridicule the germ theory of
disease for years and years, it can ridicule anyting....and will.
