From the Author

"FOWL!" is an investigative report into how dioxins, POPs and other environment chemicals are contributing to illness in migratory birds, chickens and humans by making them more susceptible to the effects of influenza viruses.

The avian flu scare is just the latest act in an ongoing world government drama. This book is a disclosure about betrayals on many levels. Here are a few of the truths that will be exposed: -Who wants the rural chickens dead? Who benefits from the destruction of the family farm, here and abroad? -What are the real reasons that domestic chickens and ducks are sick? -What is the connection between toxic environmental conditions and the death ofmigratory birds? -Why are human deaths associated with bird flu concentrated in Southeast Asia? -Who benefits from the manufacture of a 'pandemic vaccine'? What's in it? -Why vaccines are not the answer. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

The easiest way to explain the bird flu fiction is to watch bird flu fiction.
Don Harkins
I thought the book might be technical and dry, overly medical or boringingly scientific.
Jack
Someone has some explaining to do, and hopefully this book will get the ball rolling.

Fowl! Bird Flu: It's Not What You Think by Dr. Sherri J. Tenpenny, Insight Publishing, 2006

Review by Karen Davis, PhD, President of United Poultry Concerns

The poultry industry would like everyone to think that the avian influenza virus that is currently infecting migratory waterfowl and domestic chickens is the result of birds running wild in the fresh air and open skies. The way to control the virus is to lock up every domestic chicken, turkey and duck, and when that doesn't work, exterminate them en masse and start over, ad infinitum. Between government subsidies, reimbursements and protective insurance policies, companies like Tyson and its Russian, Asian and South American allies can exterminate thousands, even millions, of birds without losing a cent.

Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, an osteopathic medical doctor with an integrative medical practice located in Cleveland, Ohio and the author of Fowl!, is one of a growing group of reputable people who argue that the big poultry companies and the genetics and pharmaceutical conglomerates of which they're a part "are positioned to capitalize on the opportunity presented by bird flu" to industrialize poultry farming worldwide.

Dr. Tenpenny shares the view presented by GRAIN ([...] an international nongovernmental organization focusing on agriculture, in its February 2006 report "Fowl play: The poultry industry's central role in the bird flu crisis." GRAIN maintains that wild and free roaming birds "are not fuelling the current wave of bird flu outbreaks stalking large parts of the world." The geographical spread of bird flu does not match migratory bird routes and seasons so much as it matches proximity to industrialized poultry farms and trade routes.

This is an excellent book - a thorough systematic and well researched book which documents the REAL reasons for birds and people to be dying of 'bird 'flu'namely toxic residues of pesticides and herbicides including those persisiting form the agent orange bombings in vietnam, the appalling, cruel and inhumanely toxic conditions in which poultry are factory famed and the vested interests behind decimation of the traditional family poultry breeders and the pushing of a useless and dangerous vaccine. It includes what you really need to know to be healthy which is the only real immunity.

An excellent read, I couldn't stop turning the pages

FOWL!

Bird Flu: It's Not What You Think

Nearly everyone on earth is aware that global public health authorities are preparing for the day when avian flu virus variant H5N1 jumps species into people and spreads like wildfire around the globe, indiscriminately killing tens of millions of innocent, defenseless people.

But what if it were a bold-faced lie? What if the medical literature and recent history proves that the international bird flu-scare effort is an elaborate hoax? What if birds are being set up as patsies by a conspiracy of powerful government agencies and multinational corporations? What if sick migratory birds and domestic fowl are canaries and the entire planet is a coal mine?

Dr. Tenpenny is a practicing osteopathic physician from Cleveland. She proved her capabilities as a fearless researcher by adventuring into the salt mines of published vaccine literature to prove that vaccines neither safely nor effectively prevent the spread of infectious diseases--and the CDC knows it.

Alarmed by what she felt was a curious overreaction to a few human deaths attributed to a species-jumping avian virus, Dr. Sherri Tenpenny directed her research talents to getting to the bottom of this bird flu hype. She began by asking the following questions: Why are so many birds sick? Who wants all the chickens dead? Why are the human cases clustered primarily in SE Asia and what is the connection to cases elsewhere? Why are vaccine manufacturers being given a blank check to develop a vaccine that will be mandatory? Are global conditions similar to those extant at the time of the 1918 flu pandemic? "From those questions," Dr. Tenpenny assures us, "the story begins to unfold."

The bird flu is quickly becoming the "go-to" healthcare story for assignment editors and news producers everywhere. That's fine, except that modern attention spans being what they are, the risk is run of mass over-saturation and tuning-out too soon. Ditch the bathwater if you must, but save the baby. That said, I hope interested parties catch their collective breaths long enough take a serious look at FOWL!

FOWL! was written by Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, who according to her bio, is a former emergency room doctor now practicing integrative medicine near Cleveland.

The book attempts to walk a very ambitious fine line; balancing the complexities demanded by the science involved with an approachability necessary to attract and keep the casual reader. For the most part, and fortunately, the author pulls it off.

Tenpenny turns the bird flu story inside out, tackling issues only tangentially touched upon by the traditional media. Information abounds for anyone with an interest in - or an ax to grind with - the bird flu phenomenon. In one chapter she's explaining how viruses mutate in order to "jump species," while in another she's commenting on the looming specter of mandatory vaccination and the accompanying civil liberties concerns. This ain't your high school science text, folks.

Tenpenny is masterful on two counts:

1.) Putting the "threat" of an avian flu outbreak into historical context, vis-a-vis the Swine Flu drama of 1976 and the Smallpox scare of 2002. In both cases she illustrates how elected officials and career bureaucrats exploited the fear of a largely uninformed public, and outlines how similar plans are unfolding in response to bird flu concerns.
