Interferon is created in small quantities in the body in response to infection, and seems to work best at these low dosages. However, the public health cowboys, working under the assumption that anything good in tiny amounts must be better in massive amounts, pursued exactly the wrong strategy. High-dose interferon does not work in the body and may even cause problems.
The first remarkable results for interferon and the flu were reported by the Soviets in the 1970s, but Western medicine discounted these findings because they believed the dosages were so low they couldn’t possibly be effective. In the 1980s, when interferon was expensive to produce and only small quantities could be manufactured, the results were remarkable.
Dr. Cummins was an early pioneer of low-dose interferon, and his remarkable findings among animals led to collaborations with medical doctors for human trials, even going so far as Africa at the height of the HIV-AIDS epidemic. Cummins reviews the evidence for this inexpensive, safe treatment and makes an eloquent argument for medical science to take another look at interferon to tackle today’s most challenging health conditions, including COVID-19.
"The Case for Interferon documents the life study of Dr. Joseph Cummins, a veterinarian and virologist, in his pursuit to understand how animals and humans can use low-dose oral interferon to reduce the symptoms of a broad range of viral diseases. Dr. Cummins’ inquisitive life works have contributed to advancing the science of how lower doses of interferon, similar to what our body produces naturally, can help boost the body’s natural immune system and aid in a quicker recovery. A courageous and optimistic pioneer, Dr. Cummins brought hope and quality of life to the many who dared to step outside of Big Pharma’s medicine cabinet. A worthy and noble torch for the next generation of scientists to carry forth."
"The Case for Interferon is an incredible scientific journey through decades of data and clinical trials in the study of low-dose oral interferon applications, interweaved with the intriguing personal narrative of a modest scientist, Dr. Joseph Cummins, overcoming outside obstacles of money, power, and the status quo as he tries to heal the world."
