( Part 3 of 3 ) So what might happen when you repeatedly bombard a baby’s immune system with vaccines?
It depends whether you believe Dr Paul Offit, the king pin at the Children’s Hospital at Philadelphia and seemingly of late, the sole mouthpiece for vaccination programs and the vaccine industry in the United States, who claims that healthy infants can safely get up to 1...

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...

"Surprise: Scientists discover that inflammation helps to heal wounds". Interesting headline, huh? Remind you of anything? Like "Fever helps the body successfully fight disease, and using drugs to reduce fever, gives the infection the advantage." ?? So why did the medical mantra of treating sprains with RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation), become so popula...

In his book, "How Doctor's Think", Dr Jerome Groopman describes an ultrasound doctor, who detects in a baby, inside a woman 5 weeks from giving birth, a strange shaped space inside the baby's brain which should look like a tear-drop with sharp edges, but just doesn't look quite right. Not badly wrong, but just not quite right. Because the shape is pretty near...

Warning. Having an opinion is dangerous. Have you noticed the plethora of "needed" (choke) rules, regulations and safety requirements which stalk anyone who might want to do something adventurous? Take for instance a group who sets up a children's adventure camp. They analyse any possible problems, and try to cover every eventuality. Parents sign their kid...

Mannnnny years ago (1984 - 86), I wrote an article on obstetricians dogmas on cord cutting in hospital ,which landed up in various incarnations in several journals worldwide, finally landing up in Mothering Magazine. The thrust of this article was that obstetricians had their heads firmly located in the pavement, and that babies of any age, and condition are not born with a scissor d...

Further to the superb piece in today's Otago Daily Times paper written by Otago Medical Schools Professor of Medical Ethics (and neurologist) Professor Grant Gillett, calling into question the ostrich attitudes of medical practitioners,
it needs to be said that Ascor L 500, which is what is used in intravenous vitamin C, cannot be considered "alternative". Ascor L...

On the matter of Dr Anthony J Morris, my verdict on the research skills of the non-skeptics is quite simple.
I have known Dr Morris personally since 1984, so can say straight up, that PALMD, the practicising internist from the Great Lakes region of the USA, (PALMD's vitriole, pdf'd and uploaded here - just in case he tries to ever deny he said this) has research skills as useless as a mate o...

Not that' you'd know with what many medical articles call both medical and parental "fever-phobia"! What other explanation can there be to the fact that not one person in the skeptics or the medical profession questions the use of drugs to squelch fever? Or even the function of fever?
Oh yeah. There could be another explanation. You know, the one which SKEPTICS normally suggest is ...

“Warning on blood thinning medicine” rang out the headlines in the Herald on 10 June 2010, in an article which warned that warfarin can result in strokes. This type of article is particularly dangerous, because readers can assume that what is said is the only danger there is. Warfarin is way more dangerous than just causing strokes. Warfarin is a major nutrient robber, to the p...

Hurrah, a doctor finally sees the blindingly obvious! In a study entitled “Wait to clamp umbilical cord, study says” Paul R. Sanberg from South Florida College of Medicine, is the first person I know of, who has finally published what I’ve been saying for years. Which equates to “Don't clamp the newborn’s umbilical cord!” His reason is that cord blood gives t...

Utterly gobsmacking. A doctor, who thinks the Swine flu vaccine programme unnecessary, is more concerned that the anti-vaccine movement is having a field day, because the Australian flu vaccine is causing high fevers and seizures with at least one kiddo in ICU? Hello? Wake up mate. Just WHO is it that parents of children affected by vaccines in any country, usually end up...

An April 4th, a new study came out showing that the rise in autism was because mothers talked over the fence, so the next mother, trotted off to doctors, getting the next “in” diagnosis,
Sorry about the sarcasm.
However, 21 hours ago, we have just been served up this gem.
Gene x environment interactions for ADHD: synergistic effect of 5HTTLPR genotype and youth appraisa...

“Demand for jabs puts squeeze on supply” squealed page 2 of the New Zealand Herald. And those of us who have collected these headlines for decades realise that there will be suckers out there who think the news is for real. Even if they know that this is the typical selling technique for all advertising. “Stocks limited” “One per person”. A few discrete enqui...

This study is the latest marvelous words of wisdom from the medical profession who have decided that the increase in autism can’t possibly ... really .... be due to any specific virus, toxicity or any other moronic idea from people whose kids have regressed after vaccination .... or whose mother's bodies were loaded to the hilt during pregnancy with epigenetic toxins some of whi...
