the past 10 years, Horowitz has become America's most controversial
medical authority. A university-trained medical researcher,
Horowitz, 48, charges that elements of the United States
government are conspiring with major pharmaceutical companies
to make large segments of the population sick. More than
that, he charges that these same conspirators created the
AIDS epidemic to kill Blacks, Hispanics and gays. And if
that's not enough, Horowitz argues that Adolph Hitler created
the New World Order to fulfill his twisted dream of world
has made these claims in a series of books, videos, public
appearances and radio talk shows. Today, Horowitz is best
known as one of the most vocal opponents of government-mandated
vaccines. He believes that vaccine manufacturers have purposely
contaminated their products with a wide range of exotic
viruses, including funguses developed by the United States
military. He believes contaminated vaccines were intentionally
used to create the AIDS epidemic.

After he received a doctorate in dentistry from Tufts University,
he was awarded a fellowship to do behavioral research at
the University of Rochester. Horowitz later earned a Master
of Public Health degree in behavioral science from Harvard
University and a Masters degree in health education from
Beacon College. He has also served on the faculties of Tufts
University, Harvard University, and Leslie College's Institute
for the Arts and Human Development. His published research

Health and Wellness Management magazines to the
Journal of Patient Education and Counseling, the
Journal of AIDS Patient Care and the British Dental

establishment and embraced alternative, holistic therapies.
He currently serves as president of Tetrahedron, Incorporated,
a non-profit organization founded in Massachusetts in 1987.
According to the organization's literature, Tetrahedron's
mission is "to provide people with opportunities to
enhance their own abilities to experience health in body,
mind, emotions, and spirit. To aid and help people educate
others to create harmonious social relationships within
safe and supportive environments and thereby help develop
a world which functions more for the benefit of all humanity."

where he has appeared before large, enthusiastic crowds.
A dynamic public speaker, Horowitz has presented his conspiracy

decade, personally selling his books and tapes before and
after his presentations. He has also appeared on numerous
talk radio shows, including the nationally-broadcast "Art
Bell Show" and "Sightings" with Jeff Rense.

series of "Healing Celebrations" designed to introduce
newly-discovered natural therapies for fighting illnesses,
including cancer and other immune system-related ailments.
A Jew who has converted to evangelical Christianity, Horowitz
says these treatments are God's own healing methods. I caught
up with Horowitz at the Airport Holiday Inn in Portland,
Oregon on February 4. He was scheduled to speak at a "Healing
Celebration" scheduled for that evening and the next
day in the hotel's largest conference room. A handsome man
with a firm handshake and smooth manner, Horowitz met me
in the lobby of the hotel. Dressed in a tailored gray suit,
white shirt and tie, he agreed to be interviewed in the
hotel restaurant. We sat in a booth with a small formica
table. He ordered a glass of water and a small plate of
lemon slices, squeezing the slices into the glass and sipping
