The name of the game.

Hilary Butler - Sunday, July 14, 2013

Part One: Words from Memory Lane. 

Part Two: Who controls the rhetoric?
 

The Scientist’s article “Worried Sick” confirms that nocebo and placebo are a primary drivers in medical practice, by their statement: “In places like primary care, people are swimming in placebo and nocebo effects.”

Placebo is defined as: “a usually pharmacologically inert preparation prescribed more for the mental relief of the patient than for its actual effect on a disorder”

A placebo could also be defined as “There there Dearie, you’ll be fine. This is simple to fix….” Continue Reading


The Bell tolls but who is listening?

Hilary Butler - Monday, July 01, 2013

The news that CSL refuses to take responsibility for flu vaccines which cause seizures in Saba Button, an Australian child, should toll the bell and wake a few people up.  Look at CSL's reasoning:

“In a defence filed in court last week, CSL lawyer Belinda Thompson claimed Saba had two other shots, Neisvac and Priorix, on the same day and alleged they may have caused febrile convulsions and fever.

Ms Thompson said CSL was not required to do pre-marketing clinical studies for seasonal flu vaccines. She said her client was not told of at least 90 other children presented to Princess Margaret Hospital with adverse reactions - 19 of which involved seizures or convulsions - after receiving Fluvax between March 18 and April 15.”


HERE we have exactly the problem which has been pointed out ad nauseum before…. When three different vaccines are given together, how do you sort out what did what? Is anyone really surprised that CSL is screaming “This other company’s vaccine, or that other company’s vaccine could have done it. It’s their fault, not ours!” Pass the buckoh!!!  Continue Reading


Pied Pipers and duped lemmings.

Hilary Butler - Tuesday, May 28, 2013

There are days when you wonder where supposed experts leave their brains. Worse, you wonder about the people who follow like lemmings. Dr Arthur Caplan has scored another hit in the brainless bullseye for his recent medieval thinking blog. I will intersperse comments amongst his mental witterings:

How to get sick. Have the flu vaccine.

Hilary Butler - Monday, May 27, 2013

It would seem that tentative toes have entered medical debate over flu vaccines. Ever so tentative.  Almost apologetic actually, which is bizarre, if you look closely at 60 years of very clear medical evidence that the flu vaccine has always performed exceptionally poorly.  But there is another issue here, and it's the "myth" which the medical profession tries to dispel - which everyone knows, which is, "Get the flu vaccine and get sick.

That comment is like a stuck record, which comes out of the lips of so many people. Yet, the doctor always says, "Oh, it's coincidental!" and never bothers to do a throat swab to back that presumption up with fact. Continue Reading


Part One (of four) Herald on Sunday Flu propaganda

Hilary Butler - Sunday, March 17, 2013

In the three articles written by Chloe Johnson in the Herald on Sunday, March 3, 2013, (herehere and here) there was a ton of misinformation. I pulled her up on all her mistakes, which she refused to accept, and maintains that her articles were balanced and she is proud of them. The Herald on Sunday editor’s contribution to my attempt at redress was ....  to tell me that he had told Chloe to stop corresponding with me. 

So let's discuss the truth, from New Zealand's provaccine medical literature – as opposed to  the medical profession's propaganda fed and regurgitated willingly by the Herald on Sunday. The only “plus” in Chloe’s articles, was that Dr Huang admitted that there was no evidence that the flu vaccine actually worked.  Continue Reading


Whooping cough and chameleons.

Hilary Butler - Saturday, August 18, 2012

Following on from the medieval war of words on measles......., lies, emotional blackmail, weasel words and chameleon science is also being purveyed in the whooping cough battle.

Starting with the most obvious, is Vaccinet’s trumpeting headline about a Washington whooping cough outbreak recently that: "Anti-vaccine movement causes the worst whooping cough epidemic in 70 years."  Meanwhile other provaccine sites –while taking the line that everyone should have their pertussis shots with breakfast, no matter what age – at least have the decency not to lie in the text, even if the videos are outright blackmail.  Who in their right mind would leave a baby coughing, on their backs?. The medical profession says, about the Washington outbreak, that:  Continue Reading


More Herald Flu Propaganda.

Hilary Butler - Sunday, July 22, 2012

Yesterday I wrote a blog about the Sunday Herald flu propaganda, which resulted in the Herald removing the original article and replacing the Sunday on Herald emotional blackmail with different Pap. Not content with that, the vaccine "stakeholders" must have also said, "Oi, while we're on the phone, can we rope in Rudman?  He's pretty gullible..." and on cue, he produced an "opinion" rant, while Martin Johnson, produced a plodding report.  Tomorrow I will have a go at Rudman's Rant.

New Zealand Herald's usual Flu propaganda

Hilary Butler - Saturday, July 21, 2012

Today, the Herald printed it's usual annual flu propaganda (I've removed the URL) and a private email to the reporters who put their names to it, was returned. The Herald doesn't allow enough words on the comment facility to deal with the issues, and they only want videos or photos, not facts. Therefore, this blog will address the issues.

M.M.R. - Merck's Money Racket

Hilary Butler - Sunday, June 24, 2012

So what's the big deal, if as alleged in my previous blog, Merck did actually seriously muck around with the efficacy test, cook the books, invent figures, and produce MMR with a dud Mumps component? After all...when did you last hear of anyone dying from Mumps?  (I never did even before the MMR was introduced in 1991, but that's another story.) 

Will this court case succeed? I don't think so, because it's all about MONEY. (<--- MP3 file just for us oldies!)

Close-Up on whooping cough, part One.

Hilary Butler - Thursday, May 17, 2012



Close Up's programme on whooping cough, was a triumph of emotional blackmail using a cute baby with whooping cough, to push a policy which doesn't work.  But worse than that, was the standard of discussion on Close up's facebook page.  You know that eminence based manipulation has truly scraped the bottom of the barrel when Grant Jacobs obliquely counsels all readers not to even look at the scientific links put up, .... inferring that those who don’t have the right background won’t understand the studies posted implying that there is no need for anyone else to look at them either
