Implementation of PCR Surveillance in Food Production with Dongyu Liu, DVM, Ph.D, former Assistant Research Professor, CVM Basic Science, Mississippi State University.
Dr. Liu has authored five (5) texts on Polymearse Chain Reaction as a detection methodology for human pathogens.
He has published twenty-five (25) articles in peer-reviewed journals on topics ranging from microbiology to PCR surveillance of food for human pathogens.
In his text, "Molecular Detection of Foodborne Pathogens," he has written, "One of the most effective ways to control and prevent human foodborne infections is to implement a pathogen surveillance system. Addressing the biology, epidemiology, and pathogenesis of more than 60 microorganisms, Molecular Detection of Foodborne Pathogens demonstrates how to implement a surveillance system that uses state-of-the-art molecular techniques to quickly detect and identify bacterial, fungal, viral, and parasitic pathogens concerned."
Of his text, "Molecular Detection of Human Bacterial Pathogens," he has written, "This book represents a reliable and convenient reference on molecular detection and identification of major human bacterial pathogens; an indispensable tool for upcoming and experienced medical, veterinary, and industrial laboratory scientists engaged in bacterial characterization; and an essential textbook for undergraduate and graduate students in microbiology."

A critical look and challenge of the unproven theories, discredited research claims, fabrications, manipulations, and unfulfilled predictions surrounding the HIV = AIDS hypothesis.
After 30 years, the virus named HIV has not been proven to cause AIDS.
The evidence that a virus claimed to be HIV even exists is based on evidence that some scietists argue is insufficient.
Some scientists who acknowledge that a new retrovirus had been discovered in 1984 nevertheless are not convinced that it causes AIDS or any other adverse health effect.
There is no test for HIV that provides a reliable result for infection. In practice, diagnoses of HIV infection (HIV+) are made by assuming that two unreliable results add up to a reliable result. The truth is, that's the best they can do.
HIV infection and AIDS are treated using a mixture or cocktail of drugs of two types: nucleoside analogs and protease inhibitors. Both are toxic and eventually cause iatrogenic disease. Nucleoside analogs,such as AZT, can create AIDS symptoms. AZT has been referred to as "AIDS by prescription" by Professor Peter Duesberg, a prominent virologist from University of California-Berkeley.
Think of HIV tests and AIDS defining conditions as vehicles to entrap people into becoming lifelong pharmaceutical clients. The tab is paid with tax dollars, but people are still needed to swallow the obscenely overpriced poison pills.
Gay men, i.v. drug users, young people, pregnant women, African Americans, and the Hip Hop community are among the groups specifically targeted in campaigns urging people to "get tested."

After 30 years, the virus named HIV has not been proven to cause AIDS. Part 2of2 interview with David Crowe, president of Rethinking AIDS.
April 23, 2014 marks the 30th Anniversary of a day that changed the course of history. on that day, ...
Our guest is David Crowe ...
In this Special 2-part series, we will show that HIV has never been proven to cause AIDS. We will discuss what AIDS really is.You may be surprised to learn that none of the tests for AIDS--NONE of them--is approved for use in diagnosing HIV infection. etc. etc.
Every Thursday LIVE from the Bronx at 11 pm, with Hosts Chief69 and Richard Jannaccio.

This week we will be meeting with Marshall Edwards, a local Kansas City comic creator, and writer for Praire City Response, we will be talking with Marshall about the challenges, and rewards of being a comic creator in today's world. We encourage our listeners to call in live for questions for Marshall or the hosts during this show!
The Culture of Comics has longer, meta discussions about themes and art in current runs of different books. It will often contain "spoilers" in current runs and "previews" of upcoming books.
Leatherhead Opens ‘DirtyLab’ For Pathogen Challenge Testing with John Haines, Leatherhead Food Research
John has 23 years’ experience working in the clinical and food sectors, with 16 years’ service at Leatherhead working on the development, optimization and evaluation of new technologies for the rapid separation, concentration and detection of analytes of importance to food safety and quality, including foodborne bacterial pathogens, toxins, viruses, allergens and adulterated ingredients. Technologies for separation and concentration include SPE, immunoaffinity, magnetic separation, dielectrophoresis, free flow electrophoresis and molecular imprinting; and for detection include RT-PCR, immunoassay, microarray, optical biosensors and fluorescence microscopy. Current work includes the development of methods for the detection of antibiotic resistant bacteria (e.g. ESBL’s) and virus (HNov and surrogates) inactivation during food processing.
Agenda: 1. Introduction. 2. What is a human pathogen? 3. How do pathogens contaminate food products? 4. What are the methods to test for these pathogens? 5. Leatherhead’s new Pathogen Pilot Plant, also known as DirtyLab, mission. 6. Which processes deliberately contaminate food products with pathogens? 7. How will this investigate micro-organisms under selected processing conditions? 8. How does challenge testing in an environment which replicates a food production areas help? 9. How does the lab assist with industry best practices? 10. Conclusion.
