Yesterday, we were greeted by the headline “No mumps jab? Stay home: school”.
This morning, we were greeted by the TVNZ headline, “Watch: Down goes another! All Blacks lose Ardie Savea to third case of mumps on end-of-year tour” We hear that a third, fully vaccinated All Black catches mumps. Seemingly the isolation of the previous case did nothing for transmission, and neither did the v...

Polly Gillespie is not one for letting the facts get in the way of an emotive story, even when it concerns the tragic death of her sister. Polly got her sister’s cause of death wrong, her sister’s age wrong, the day she was admitted to hospital wrong, and the day she died wrong. In addition, Polly thought nothing of dishing out hate and literal threats of violence to individuals who...

The annual flu barrage has already started in our local paper Franklin County news with this little pearl:
Before you read anything else, please flick through this presentation put together by the Cochrane Collaboration Influenza group (Yes, the last three slides bunk out, but the rest is good! This Cochrane powerpoint puts similar things in a different way... ), who believe th...

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...

(For anyone reading this in Australia, I did a similar blog in 2008, on Australian media lies on pertussis as well, which you can read here. It also contains full text medical articles and proof that what their media reports is blatantly fictitious propaganda, created by medical people whose only aim is to intentionally deceive the reader by NOT providing the facts. After all, if they...

After last night's Sunday documentary, Nikki Turner hit out, with the email below. However, all this document does, is to show just how little Nikki Turner actually understands the very system she's trying to explain.
Firstly we need to remember that ACC is no fault compensation – it is not proving causal links.
This is the biggest load of rubbish I've ever...

This morning, "Littlies" sent out the following IMAC propaganda email below, to all the people who sign up for Littlies monthly emails and promotional stuff for kids (Highlighting and comments mine). It would seem that like parliament, Littlies has utterly failed to understand the principle and rights of parents to have informed choice.

Following on from yesterday's blog about Paul Offit's Science Friction, .. today's blog is about how Nikki Turner's presentations to the Parliamentary Select Committee are tainted with the same "blight". Part of Paul Hutchison's recommendations to Parliament included Nikki Turner's unfactual statement (under her IMAC guise) that if vaccination against measles...

In the Sunday Star Times today, Judge David McNaughton delivered a swift message to Starship doctors about predictive and substandard medical care, and the presumption of guilt without good cause. The Judge found Famaile Lino not guilty of abusing his six month old child after Starship jumped to conclusions, and robustly defended their own preconceived mindsets. The L...

In a previous blog, mention was made of North and South’s rabidly nose-in-the-air provaccine article called “The case for vaccination”. The editor, Virginia Larson stuck her personal stake in the ground, with a scathing editorial, saying, “We did not seek out the extreme anti-immunisation campaigners for “balance” because their arguments aren’...

How do we know this? Because on page 40 of the June Issue of North and South, Dr Michael Tatley from CARM tells us, “An awfully large number of people have been exposed to vaccines and if they’re as bad as some of the anti lobby are suggesting, there must be a lot of really sick people out there. And we just don’t see them.” No, CARM doesn’t see them, and most of t...

On May 8th, IMAC scored a coup with this patsy plant, in the Press. This article is stunning - not for it's factual or investigative, intelligent content, but for the seeming naive gullibility of the reporter, who it would appear didn't realise that he was asked to come for a walk, like a little puppy dog. I can just see it now. Someone walks in and asks, “Who is the...

Thank you for your reply. Have you read my submission to the select committee yet? Have you read the OTHER submissions?
I completely disagree with your statements in the paper and your proposed approach to vaccination. Furthermore, I completely disagree with the tenet that parents should have some “conscientious objection” signed off at the whim of a doctor.
Vaccination should be an...

In October 2009, Dr Diana Harper, the lead researcher in the development of both Gardasil and Cervarix, addressed a conference intended to promote vaccines . (Just in case it disappears, I've pdf'd it here.) Instead, the data she presented, left the doctors in the audience, wondering why HPV vaccines were used in developed countries at all.
Why did Dr Diana Harper, yet again, spill the beans?...
