In this July 7, 2021 article written and published by Dr. Joseph Mercola, we learn about The Lancet’s participation in pushing for the COVID natural origin theory.
Over a year ago, in February 2020, a group of 27 scientists wrote a letter, subsequently published by The Lancet, which condemned “conspiracy theories suggesting that COVID-19 does not have a natural origin”. That letter was used by Big Tech companies to flag and censor articles exploring a lab leak hypothesis, claiming that these articles were false information. In June 2020, The Lancet set up a COVID commission to help governments assess the origins of the virus. All members of that COVID commission were signatories to the letter.
In the original letter, all 27 scientists, including Peter Daszak, declared they had no “competing interests. In recent days, however, it has been revealed that the said letter was covertly drafted by Daszak, president of EcoHealth Alliance which is a known long-term collaborator of the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Aside from Daszak, six other signatories to the February letter have ties to the EcoHealth Alliance. According to Richard Ebright, a bio-security expert, and professor of chemical biology at Rutgers University in New Jersey, “It would have been better for The Lancet to have stated that Daszak’s and other signers’ previous declarations were untruthful and to have attached an editorial expression of concern. Instead, The Lancet only asked the original signatories to “re-evaluate” their competing interests and allowed Daszak to publish a 416-word disclosure clarifying his various conflicts of interests.
The Lancet is set to publish a second statement from these same signatories which insist that COVID probably emerged through zoonotic transfer from animals to humans.
Editor’s Note: Let us remember that Lancet is guilty of publishing a fake study on hydroxychloroquine, which again, affected the international policy [see Scientific fraud at top medical journals affect world COVID-19 policy]. One could easily write this off as a mere oversight. But with this new issue relating to Peter Daszak, the credibility of The Lancet comes into question. How can anyone still believe anything from this journal which has twice now, published “landmark” articles which are fraudulent? Remember the quote “Fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me”? We should not take journal articles as absolute truth as science can only be strengthened when the findings of researches are cross-examined and questions. There is no such thing as “untouchables” in science.Some experts, for example Dr. Anthony Fauci have delusions that their positions can be equated to science, see https://nypost.com/2021/06/09/fauci-says-attacks-on-him-are-attacks-on-science/
Second, this incident shows us clearly that scientific journals are also affected by political interests. If a top journal like The Lancet cannot be fully objective, do we really think that much smaller, and much newer journals can? [Also read Scientists quit board to pressure journal into retracting study showing COVID vaccines can kill, Journals are refusing to publish a mask study from Denmark, to find other examples].
Third, if Lancet ends up publishing a second defense of the zoonotic transfer of COVID, they are basically destroying their reputation. Anthony Fauci’s emails are clearly showing an orchestrated coverup of the lab origins of the COVID virus, and Lancet was involved in that effort [read Fauci’s emails, see Incriminating emails show Fauci in collusion with Big Tech, Big Pharma, mainstream media, and CDC].
