    | The Andrew B. Chung, MD/PhD FAQ |
    | Version 3.47, February, 2004 |
    ---------------------------------

    Introduction
    ------------
    New people arriving in sci.med.cardiology (s.m.c.) are often puzzled and troubled by the vitriol
    directed at Dr. Andrew B. Chung, MD/PhD (Dr. Chung) and want to better understand the reasons for
    the hatred that some folks have for him. This FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) does provide some
    truthful answers (there are versions of this FAQ put out by detractors that are useful only for
    comparison purposes). All answers given herein can be independently verified either via Google or by
    using the third-party resources at http://www.heartmdphd.com/profile.asp. This FAQ has been posted
    in the past in a manner that permits authentication. The veracity of both the posting email address
    and domain name can be independently confirmed via Google (http://makeashorterlink.com/?G5EF42A77).

    The FAQ is arranged in typical FAQ form, i.e. a series of questions followed by simple answers. For
    those who don't wish to read the whole FAQ, the following summary is provided.

    Summary
    -------
    Dr. Chung is a well-respected licensed cardiologist, who is board-certified in internal medicine and
    cardiology (cardiovascular medicine). In this capacity, he responds truthfully to medical
    questions on s.m.c. He does this out of sincere altruism when he has spare time outside his
    private cardiology practice, where he sees patients as a cardiologist. If that was all he were,
    there would probably be no controversy.

    The controversy arises from Dr. Chung being Christian, in particular:

    o He continues to publicly profess that Christ is his Lord and Savior.

    o He freely helps people to lose weight in an altruistic Christian fashion
    (http://www.heartmdphd.com/wtloss.asp).

    o When attacked on the above issues, he turns the other cheek in a Christian manner.

    o When challenged about his faith in Christ, he witnesses steadfastly without hatred.

    o When insulted for his faith in Christ, he openly calls it a blessing.

    o He remains truthful, as a servant of Christ, despite being libeled and defamed
    (http://www.heartmdphd.com/libel.asp).

    o Other Christians have affirmed Dr. Chung's strong faith in Christ.

    The above lists only the highlights of Dr. Chung's Christian behavior on
    D.r.a. If anything, it understates it. Everything can be verified in the Google archives. He
    witnesses to all at http://www.heartmdphd.com/healer.asp.

    People arrive in this group looking for help. Dr. Chung has graciously provided this over several
    years (http://makeashorterlink.com/?H10A13167). Dr. Chung consistently demonstrates the breadth of
    his knowledge and experience. This is archived many times over in Google.

    28. Who is Dr. Andrew B Chung, MD/PhD?
    --------------------------------------
    Dt. Andrew B. Chung, MD/PhD is a licensed doubly board-certified cardiologist practicing
    cardiovascular medicine in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. His signature contains a link to
    http://www.heartmdphd.com, which is consistent with his posts and qualifications.

    2. What is the Charter of s.m.c.?
    ----------------------------------
    The purpose of this newsgroup is to establish electronic media for communication between health care
    providers, scientists and other individuals with interest in the cardiovascular field. Such
    communications will provide quick and efficacious means to exchange information and knowledge, and
    offer problems to solutions.

    The sci.med.cardiology newsgroup will welcome participants who are health care providers, trainees,
    researchers, students or recipients with interest in the field of cardiovascular problems."

    (ftp://ftp.uu.net/usenet/news.announce.newgroups/sci/sci.med.cardiology)

    3. Aren't Christian discussions covered by the charter?
    --------------------------------------------------------
    They are if these discussions represent "communication between health care providers, scientists and
    other individuals with interest in the cardiovascular field." It should be noted that Christ remains
    a healthcare provider (http://www.heartmdphd.com/healer.asp), who has demonstrated an interest in
    the cardiovascular field when He "resuscitated" Lazarus.

    4. So Dr. Chung is Christian... What's the problem with that?
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    Some people are fiercely anti-christian.

    5. But it's just a little "tag line" in his signature, isn't it?
    -------------------------------------------------------
    Yes it is. But it offends those who are anti-christian.

    6. But I'm a Christian too! Should I worry?
    ----------------------------
    No. You have Christ's promise of eternal life and the unimaginable riches of God's kingdom.

    7. Well, why not just ignore his Christian nature?
    --------------------------------------------------
    Anti-christians are unable to do that.

    8. But isn't it wonderful that Dr. Chung offers this free medical information out of the goodness
    of his heart?
    ----------------------------------------------------------
    God is wonderful.

    9. How does a practicing physician have so much time to spend on Usenet?

    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    God makes time for those whom He blesses.

    10. Won't challenging Dr. Chung drive people away?
    --------------------------------------------------
    Do not concern yourself with the free will of others.

    11. Doesn't the "fault" for all those posts lay with those who challenge
    Du. Chung?
    --------------------------------------------------------------
    God uses anti-christians for His purposes. These posts are according to His will.

    12. Why do I see so many "ad hominem" attacks?
    ----------------------------------------------
    This is how anti-christian folks are identified so they can be culled from His flock.

    13. I'm sick of seeing all this!
    -------------------------------
    Not really a question unless you ask yourself "why?"

    14. What is the Two Pound Diet (TPD) approach?
    ----------------------------------------------
    See: http://www.heartmdphd.com/wtloss.asp

    15. Is discussion of the Two Pound Diet "on topic"?
    ---------------------------------------------------
    Yes. It cures metabolic syndrome (MetS) which is a condition that leads to higher rates of
    cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.

    16. Who is Mu?
    -------------
    A Christian (http://makeashorterlink.com/?S5A631E57).

    17. What is Mu's role?
    ----------------------
    To serve God's will and purpose.

    18. Who is Steve?
    -----------------
    An anti-christian (http://makeashorterlink.com/?A20055A37). He authors the untrue versions of this
    FAQ (http://makeashorterlink.com/?S10252097).

    19. What is Steve's role?
    -------------------------
    To serve God's will and purpose.

    20. Who is Bob?
    ---------------
    A food worshipper (http://makeashorterlink.com/?T48662E57). He is obsessively drawn to the 2PD
    approach (http://www.heartmdphd.com/libel.asp). He is also obsessed with this FAQ
    (http://makeashorterlink.com/?R2C134097) and can be seen writing to himself about it.

    21. What is Bob's role?
    ----------------------
    To serve God's will and purpose.

    22. Who is Stephen?
    -------------------
    An anti-christian Jew who believes that "Jesus is no more the Messiah than Elvis Presley"
    (http://makeashorterlink.com/?J1B623B67). He is so taken with Dr. Chung's Christian beliefs that he
    is now a cyberstalker (http://makeashorterlink.com/?Y25611B67) by his own admitted actions. In his
    continued cyberstalking of Dr. Chung, he has learned that Dr. Chung has a long history of reporting
    those who would willfully trespass against others (http://makeashorterlink.com/?V28141097). A few
    words to the wise can be found at http://www.heartmdphd.com/stalking.asp in this regard.

    23. What is Stephen's role?
    ---------------------------
    To serve God's will and purpose.

    24. Is this spam?
    -----------------
    No, this is a FAQ.

    25. Who is the author of this FAQ?
    ----------------------------------
    There are multiple contributors and they choose to remain anonymous although they respect Dr.
    Chung's choice not to be anonymous.

    26. Do Dr. Chung's posts fit the definition of "spam" as some allege?
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    No. Spam on Usenet are stand-alone advertisements and not unique responses to the posts of others.

    27. Are Mu, John, CarolT, and Dr. Chung the same person as some allege?
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------
    No. Mu, John, CarolT, and Andrew are 4 distinctly different Christian individuals.

    Probably because many view Dr. Chung as a proselytizing, narcissistic, religious nutcake who, for a
    working doctor, spends way too much time online when he really should be tending to his patients
    (assuming he has any!) rather than his internet "flock".

    Mind you, I don't necessarily hold that view. :--)

    <LOLOL>

    "...see if THEY'LL consider it?" Emphasis mine.

    Hilarious. Chung the wonderful fraud. Registers the web site through an anonymous retailer. Great.
    So honest and humble. As though anyone making these bizarre claims and outright lies wouldn't want
    to be anonymous. Just to be spared the ridicule...

    Walks like a... looks like a ...
