Big Lies is a remarkable nonfiction piece of work written by a psychiatric and palliative care nurse who has been suffering from three neuro-systemic diseases, chronic fatigue, rheumatoid arthritis, and fibromyalgia, for the past 60 years. It answers the most profound questions that remain a mystery to too many, concerning incurable neuro-systemic diseases and major epidemics that we have today. Where did AIDS originate? Was it truly the result of an infected monkey making its way from the depths of the jungle to humans, or was it created in a lab as a biological weapon aimed at third-world countries in order to decimate their rapidly growing populations? Why will there never be a cure for this dangerous disease and others like it? Why did we not hear of these diseases until the 1970s and 1980s, although governments and medical organizations claim they occur naturally? These profound concerns are addressed by Salina Chown in expertly crafted discussions that reveal groundbreaking secrets about the hidden evils in the US pharmaceutical industry.
Salina also shares with us how she believes she contracted the illnesses and how they have affected her day-to-day activities since she was a young child. She exudes vulnerability and sincerity in her writing. This feature helped me get to know her better and made me particularly sensitive to her sad moments. For instance, when she did everything possible to improve her health, even at the tender age of 12, only to find that it didn't make a difference, I could not control my tears. She even refused to eat desserts and candies that her aunts and cousins offered her, which always prompted the comment, "There is something wrong with her." Personally, I believe that receiving such hurtful words as a child would destroy me. However, this was not the case for the author, who instead kept up her exercise routine and positive attitude. Because of this, I not only value but also admire her tenacious character. There was not a single part of the book that I disliked. Instead, I believed it to be an informative read that would be incredibly helpful to anyone searching for information about the unreported facts about bioweapons and the harm they have caused to innocent people.
