To the Editor: In their book, Drs Endicott
and Hagerman contend that the United States used biological weapons during
the Korean conflict.1 In their review of
that book Drs Wilde and Johnson's skepticism is understandable, but they imply
that the medical evidence is vague, that it was collected by unqualified scientists,
and that it cannot pass epidemiological examination.2
None of these criticisms is valid.
