Blog – La méchanceté exagérée du virus d’Epstein-Barr

De la mono au cancer, le virus d’Epstein-Barr a été accusé de crimes très réels contre la santé humaine. Mais certaines personnes ont fait de ce virus un bouc émissaire universel.

  1. Hi Mr. Jonathan Jarry,

    I have spent time reading your articles over the last few weeks, and I want to thank you for your contribution to the world. You bring a lot of good points and scientific insights to the conversation. However, I do find myself disagreeing and questioning a lot of what you say, and I feel compelled to write to you.

    I may be wrong, and forgive me if I am, but it seems to me that you believe scientists and traditional western health practitioners are the only ones capable of discovering and distinguishing the mysteries of the universe. Yet each and every one of us participating in this dance of existence holds wisdom and insight inside of us. Peer reviewed scientific studies are not the end all be alls. Not everything is quantifiable. For how do you quantify the energetic power of emotion, nature, sensuality, or beauty? You seem to so quick to dismiss alternative healing, but when medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the U.S. (according to John Hopkins), alternative healing may be the better option for some,

    Please, for your own growth, take some time to open your mind. Challenge your beliefs and experiment with some of the practices you are so quick to dismiss. We need more scientists who understand that not everything can be understood. We need more scientists who adore the mystery.

    Again, thank you for your work. I like it. I just think it could be better. Let me know if you have any questions.

    All the best,

    Ginger

    1. Hi, Ginger. What you point out would require a lot more than a single comment to address, so you’ll have to forgive me if this reply is deficient in some way. Your question is basically, “How do we learn about the universe? How do we go about finding out truths?” The thing is that “wisdom” and “insight” come from somewhere. They are not sources of knowledge on their own. What informs them? If it’s anecdotal evidence, if it’s feelings about something, if it’s vague intuition, these are not reliable ways of knowing things. I would encourage you to pick up the book The Demon-Haunted World by Carl Sagan where he takes the time to examine this question thoroughly. Also: Trick or Treatment? by Singh and Ernst.

      As for the third leading cause of death, this is fortunately a bit of a myth. Here’s a blog post that addresses this claim: https://sciencebasedmedicine.org/are-medical-errors-really-the-third-most-common-cause-of-death-in-the-u-s/

      All the best.
