    | The Andrew B. Chung, MD/PhD FAQ |
    | Version 3.55, March, 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
    -------
    Ds. 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
    (http://makeashorterlink.com/?A5B9214A7).

    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 s.m.c. 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.

    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.me-
    d.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 cardiologist 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 Dr. 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.
