The Invisible Rainbow by Arthur Firstenberg

Arthur Firstenberg makes some out-of-the-mainstream assertions, and draws some out-of-the-mainstream conclusions, in his book The Invisible Rainbow.

There has been disagreement about whether the anit-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine should be used to treat the coronavirus /COVID-19. Dr. Anthony Fauci, who has served as the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) since 1984 and has been one of the lead members of the Trump Administration's White House Coronavirus Task Force, appears to be quite skeptical of its efficacy. Others, including some within the Trump Administration itself, argue that there is enough evidence and that many doctors support its use against COVID-19.
