You know, Lance, initially as I read your latest Stuff.co article, I thought, “My, this man has finally learned some grammar and vocabulary of excellence". But then, as I read on, and compared it to the style used in your book, it dawned on me that you can’t have written this all on your own. Someone with a bit of science, and better grammar than you, added key stuff in here. But that someon...

Part One: Words from Memory Lane.
Part Two: Who controls the rhetoric?
Part Three: The name of the game.
Part Four: The get out of jail card.
As I look at young mothers today, I see a generation who, like never before, have been so saturated with medical nocebo in school, .... that fear and stress is often etched on their faces at the mention of the word “doctor”. They h...

Part One is here.... While the mainstream media is crawling all over the meningitis outbreak stemming from fungus contaminated steroidal injections, and blame is focused on lack of regulation controlling small compounding pharmacies, the medical system chooses to ignore bigger issues than their current simplistic red herrings.
The issue which should be being discussed, is the difference betwe...

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 ...

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.
Addendum 22 July 2012. The HERALD removed the o...

This week's "The Science" contains an opinion piece on future vaccines for TB which deserves a historic comment. The title of the article "Opinion: A TB vaccine blueprint" isn't likely to make headlines in the lay media for pretty obvious but unstated reasons. They relate to the fact that most parents today, are under the "illusion" that the great white plague was vanquished by...

On 29th August, I wrote a blog about a blog discussing a doctor in Sweden who found arsenic in the Swine Flu vaccine. An astute reader reminded me of a 2009 finding, reported in Science Daily (pdf) informing readers that arsenic exposure, compromised the immune system when it came to swine flu:
"The ability to mount an immune response to influenza A (H1N1) infection is signifi...

Perhaps this Australian documentary should have been labelled...
Totally missing the point. Or .. A bunch of Lies. Take your pick.
The Australian 60 Minutes journalist who had the responsibility for doing the research for this programme, is professionally incompetent.
You will not understand this blog unless you take the time to download all the full text medical articles, ...

.... that aluminium in vaccines just might not be all it's cracked up to be. Will your child be next? What will it take for parents to start to realise that the line they are being sold - that vaccines are perfectly safe, and wonderful...is basically "lies by omission"? The medical system can't say they don't know. All the evidence has been there for decades. Parents need...

Currently, there is considerable discussion relating to whether or not rodent viruses might be involved in CFS. You will find three full text medical papers here. Obviously, we’ve always lived with mice, and Florence Nightingale had CFS, according to historical records. However, never .... since the invention of the syringe, and scientists brewing up drugs on animal cultures .....

Everyone wants answers, just as much as Serenity's grandmother wants answers. There's no doubt that some parents kick kids around like footballs. The problem is ... where do you get the WHOLE truth? What do the medical people mean by saying that the injuries were "similar to" shaken baby syndrome? Either they are, or they aren't. And this is important, particular...

The Guardian today, produced a scrappy piece of journalism here, under the heading "Herbal remedies banned as EU rule takes effect." Whatever the actualities of what herbals will survive, and what is banned, is a much deeper issue. The voices of the skeptical comments supporting only big pharma, fall into two categories. The intolerant, who wouldn't know a fact if they saw one,...

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...

There are none so blind as those who appear to be control freaks. Peter Gluckman’s words - “For the first time ever, we have a way of working out what mothers should eat” – were considered worthy of the subtext box front page of the paper version of the Herald on Tuesday. You have to wonder why. Here’s the online version.
Let’s cut to the ch...

This is the first in a series of blogs on this topic. This one is a long blog but you need to read it very carefully. You need to understand exactly how the information provided by the MOH to Dr Hutchison is so misleading and the implications of that for the whole debate.
In December 2010, the Ministry of Health (MOH) replied to other submitters, and my written and oral p...

A few days ago, I set my husband a task. To read Paul Offit’s book called, “Deadly Choices How the anti-vaccine movement threatens us all” By half way through he was unamused. Beguiled by his sighs of discontent, I decided to stop my current track of writing. and start reading. Naturally I started with the Prologue, where the first sentence read; “There’s a war goi...

What's your thoughts on Full Body Scanners? That they are a total over-reaction? My reaction is pretty much the same as The Washington Times, which unlike most New Zealand newspapers, does thoughtful analyses on really meaningful topics. You all know the term, "The war on terror". This "terror" can be interpretted in many ways, but lets start with the "terror" which resu...

The function of the placenta is an overlooked non-thought, because the medical system considers it redundant the minute a baby's head makes an appearance. Don't you think that strange, given that for nearly nine months, the placenta has provided nutrients, oxygen and... stem cells to the baby? This magnificent organ provides an amazing service, which is utterly abused, particularly ...

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...
