Notes & Transcripts

In 2000, an Illinois scientist named William Walsh made an unusual discovery. He chemically examined some strands of hair from the head of the body of the famous classical composer Ludwig Van Beethoven. He discovered in his analysis that Beethoven’s body had 100 times the normal of lead that a human being should have. He concluded that Beethoven’s death at age 57 was the result of lead poisoning.

Now it wasn’t that someone murdered him or did him harm. No, Beethoven’s lead poisoning can be traced back to the mineral spa that he went to in order to relax. Think about that: the very thing that he thought was bringing him health and comfort was slowly killing him. He slowly poisoned himself to death.

That’s what happens in a cover up. You think you’re making yourself safer, but you’re really putting yourself in mortal danger!
