Since my dad was one of the last people to work in Lab 257, I m super interested to read this I ve already stumbled upon some names I know and pictures I ve seen, but honestly from what I ve read, I can t help but feel like this is a piece of propaganda written by someone who just doesn t see the big picture I could be wrong though We ll seeI m about halfway through the book and I ve enjoyed reading quotes from some of the people Dad used to work with For the most part, there s been a lot of his [...]

Lab 257 is located on Plum Island off the eastern edge of Long Island Established after the second World War in part by an Operation Paperclip Nazi recruit it has been involved in developing biological weaponry for decades It began as an Army institution but is currently under the aegis of homeland security, having spent most of the last few decades under the Department of Agriculture, ostensibly as an investigator of animal diseases The book tells of the various known, or suspected, leaks of ev [...]

This book scared the holy hell out of me and I live nowhere near Plum Island The island research facility is real, and so scary that it even shows up as a joke in Silence of the Lambs Here, amid shoddy conditions and poor hazard containment, US government workers toyed around with countless deadly diseases and germs and tested both potential weapons and potential animal viruses as part of defensive planning Possible links to numerous negative health effects to the surrounding community and large [...]

I would not recommend this book to anyone It is mostly a load of crap First of all, the author is a lawyer, and obviously has no understanding of the science medical stuff he is talking about For instance, he describes a hypothetical situation where an arthropod with rift valley fever escapes the island and infects someone s dog, and the dog succumbs to the virus First of all, rift valley fever is primarily a disease of ruminants sheep, cattle, etc and if it infected a pregnant dog, yes the dog [...]

Terrifying and enraging, to learn how many diseases are lab created and what our immoral government, through many eras and different administrations does with these diseases Also how moronic and totally inept these idiots are at keeping their hideous creations contained.Not an easy book to read, but if you hate being surprised and conned as I do, by those in power, this book explains a lot.

Overall, I found this to be a well written and seemingly well researched book about Plum Island Just as with Area 51 I think you need to take the book with a grain of salt you can never know how truthful former employees are in their accounts of events.I have no doubt there are germs on the island that the public will never be told about I am equally certain that there were containment issues that the public will never be told about I appreciate the DHS s need to keep projects experiments invent [...]

A very revealing book and very well researched Carroll did us justice by providing us with an open door to one of the governments many well kept secrets The only reason I didn t give it 5 stars is because he left the conclusion unfinished I feel that the author should have delved even deeper into the reasoning of the lab s heads as to how and why they thought it impossible for germs to escape Plum Island Carroll was not too far off in his theories as to the connections between animal diseases on [...]

Having had Lyme Disease most of my life, I took particular interest in this topic for years I am chronic as the result of suffering this disease for 25 years before a doctor would believe me enough to order the test This book helped me to understand the reason why the medical community so adamantly opposed testing me It infuriated me, but at least I can understand their ignorance now This book will scare the hell out of you If you read the lines, and between them, you ll realize there is much g [...]

This book ranks right up there with Richard Preston s The Hotzone for keeping me up all night The story of Plum Island should be required reading for every aspiring scientist and people interested in government inefficiency The threat to our agriculture and food supply is real, and I admire the important work that people were trying to accomplish on the island, but I think it could have been handled better and efficiently with better oversight A cautionary tale to be sure.

As someone who has lived a medical nightmare straight out of Michael Moore s Sicko this past year as a result of my Lyme Disease battle, I am finding this book immensely distressing.Therefore, in order to reduce the risk of myocardial infarction, I am taking a breather to read The Bell Jar, which is a Winnie The Pooh story in comparison.

The start of this book is ready easy to summarize The government lied to us Or completely The government lied to us about this deadly disease laboratory, and several especially virulent diseases now found in the US spread from there And they did it for decades As I began reading, the details seemed a bit tedious, but I suppose that s what happens when you research something that is being hidden you have to present whatever information you can find As the book went on that feeling left me and I [...]

After the recent outbreak of foot and mouth disease in the UK was shown to be the result this virus s escape from one of two nearby research labs, I thought it was timely to review a book that investigates this same occurrence in the United States Lab 257 the Disturbing Story of the Government s Secret Plum Island Germ Laboratory NYC William Morrow 2004 by Michael Christopher Carroll, is the riveting story of an animal disease research lab located on an 840 acre island that is only two miles fro [...]

I recall reading Nelson DeMille s Plum Island but didn t think there was an actual island This author was interviewed on the Geraldo Riviera show last week and he gave an eye opening account of the security lapses on the island Since the 1950s the island has been host to hoof and mouth disease, Rift Valley Fever, West Nile virus, Lyme disease and other hot agents The facility was originally created to counter the anti crop and anti livestock diseases other countries after WW II were developing H [...]

While the subject matter will certainly find an audience with anyone interested in virology bioweapons programs, the book itself is sorely lacking The subject matter is scientific, and should have been approached as such objectively Instead Mr Carroll deals with the subject matter in a very subjective manner, although he assures the reader that he intends to portray the Plum Island facility from all sides.My greatest frustrations with the book stem from his poor grasp of the science The subject [...]

Crazy book that details what s been going happening on an island less than 10 miles from mePlum IslandThe book is a little slow reading, b c of its nature I think, or b c I m a slow reader, but is VERY interesting.I find it astonishing that an island that is in charge of working with the world s deadliest viruses is a stone s throw away, and that they take about as much precaution from danger as a hot dog shop in Topeka, KS.I would recommend this book if you re looking to learn about the NYC are [...]

I heard about this book from a friend who lives in Old Lyme Can t say that I m shocked the the U.S gov t had a facility to study biological germ warfare, but definitely shocked that it was on an island just off the tip of Long Island The book is thoroughly researched, and the content is eye opening, but unfortunately the writing was disjointed and read like a thesis If I could, I d give the story 4 stars, and the writing 2.

The author seems to have an axe to grind with Plum Island This book is filled with scientific inaccuracies and wild assumptions For example he postulates that Lyme Disease was released as a result of secret weapon research on the island, supported by absurd disease incident mapping and infection vectors rebutted by almost every respected Lyme Disease researcher I finished it just to remind myself how important real verifiable research data is to true scientific reporting.

I started this book expecting something similar to The Hot Zone or Panic in Level 4, both excellent books by Robert Preston Instead, this book reads like a sensationalist treatment of similar subject matter The narrative seemed to lack real substance, and was not backed up well by multiple sources the way good investigative journalism should be As a consequence, I quickly lost interest.

Interesting in lots of ways The origin of Lyme Disease from chemical warfare All that and The history of the research centre on Plum Island just off Long Island Years of denials about its true purpose but it figures high on Russia s list of places to be curious about A well documented account of the Foot Mouth outbreak in 1976 which flies in the face of the US claim that the last outbreak was 1929.Also a reflection of the changes since its inception in the halcyon days of scientific research in [...]

TerrifyingCarroll makes a well researched, strong case for the connection between some strange diseases and their possible connection with the government s Animal Disease Labs on Plum Island For example, Lyme disease and West Nile Virus At any rate it seems likely that Plum Island has a checkered history rife with serious mishaps, and an enormous potential for disaster, as it is dealing with the world s most dangerous microbes in an aging, insecure, and understaffed facility The suffering inflic [...]
