"Perftoran": a revolutionary combination
A.A.Nedospasov, N.V.Beda "There is nothing more practical, than the good theory" - fundamental science inevitably finds an output in practice. Alas, in native fatherland this axiom even more often appears the theorem, a problem, and even simply illusion. Perhaps, the basic researches described in this work, will allow to restore the status quo and to minimize damage from arisen disbalance.

"Pushchinskaya Sreda" newspaper of December 15th, 2004.
At the beginning of October 2004, millions of televiewers became witnesses of a "surprising" film shown by RTR. The journalistic "investigation" under coded denomination "Blue blood. Deadly experiment" gave rise to even more rumors. This compilation formed with roughly cut out fragments of monologues pronounced by the participants of the film: scientists, physicians, relatives of victims, former agents of special services left an oppressive impression reinforced by absurdity of "versions" and by attempts to support them. The absurdity was not even disguised which was emphasized by the hypotheses expressed (the author of perftoran was an American and Japanese spy, the USSR was an American biological proving ground), by associations such as Beloyartsev - Ustinov - Stalin and by traces of boots having the mark "Z" (probably, Zorro?), the obvious incompetence in scientific and medical matters and the prejudicial character of the presentation giving rise to the idea of existence of people interested in such activity.
