Disease and overall stability of species

“For all of man’s fear of disease, however, the species has never been destroyed by it, and life has continued to function with an overall stability, despite what certainly seems to be the constant harassment and threat of illness and disease.  The same is true, generally speaking, of all species. Plants and insect fit into this larger picture, as do all fish and fowl.
“I have said elsewhere that no species is ever really eradicated – and in those terms no disease, or virus, or germ, ever vanishes completely from the face of the earth.  In the first place, viruses change their form, appearing in your terms sometimes as harmless and sometimes as lethal.”
(The Way Toward Health,Session April 20, 1984)
