WE mothers are not the crème de la crème of society. WE did not go to medical school. WE are mere mothers, who can’t possibly understand all medical science. And WE know this, because they infer so, in their medical articles about us. And in lay-press articles, we hear patronising messages such as vaccines being just like “hard hats”, “seat belts” and “steel-capped boots”. Strange. NONE of thos...

If provaccine people saw that there were barking up the wrong tree, and acted on it, they would immediately be isolated from their peers as if they were some virulent plague. Their revered “experts” who are pretty much the only social group they have known for years, would all look at them, point the finger and shout, “TRAITOR”.
The "turncoat" would lose all their friends (and income) in o...

A recent abridged email provides another piece to the jigsaw puzzle:
This person was talking about being “called into the manager's office and informed that I was now an Immunisation Co-ordinator, a joint role I shared for about 18months. I have been in the position of seeing and hearing both sides of the immunisation debate. I attended one of the Immunisation Conferences a few years ago, and ...

At a recent annual provaccine conference, it is reported that delegates expressed remorse at “strong arm” tactics. Could it be that the MenZB vaccination campaign, and the latest Gardasil efforts, have seriously backfired in their faces? People are sick of being emotionally blackmailed with drama-queen DVD’s about “How you will die if you don’t” or “Vaccination is the right thing to do, because...

What’s the difference between climate change and the provaccine zealots ?
As many of you will have noticed the climate change people have their tits in a tangle.
Some charmer hacked into a data base and uploaded emails sent hither and yon. Naturally, the blistering attacks on the “climate change deniers” were the bits that were talked about most.
If you want to read the best dis...

Over the last few years, there has been an unprecedented attack on anything loosely described as “alternative” medicine, by those who call themselves skeptics.
A recent event amused me. An acquaintance of mine, who in the same breath says he’s a greenie who believes in science, also revealed he had cancer. He props up the pharma companies handsomely, but he can afford to.
Taking him at his w...

Did you see this gem of a programme?. The worried well are killing themselves by shelling out lots of money on vitamins. Vitamins cause more deaths than second hand smoking. Never mind that the data is pure bunk. What did you think? Scared witless now? The “truth” of this matter couldn’t be funnier. Or sicker, depending on what meaning you put to the term “sick joke”.
But how many people woul...

Medicine has it’s own share of “indulgences” too, which most people don’t think about. Wouldn’t you think that modern medicine in all it’s TV swept up glory could have found a “cure” for the common cold by 2009? After all, it “knows” so much. It knows that a cure for a cold would make redundant billions of dollars in sales for the useless over the counter drugs alleged to ease the agony of a co...

History Buffs will know all about “indulgences”. To put it colloquially, this is where the Roman Catholic church said, “if you don’t give us money to pray for your dead relatives they will languish in purgatory for long periods before they get to Heaven’s gate.” I see, that the Roman Catholic church is revitalizing the “indulgences” doctrine.
Except of course, there is no such place as purgat...

Do you ever think back to your school days, and the things you thought back then?
I can still see the blackboard and what was written on it, in a history class when we were studying World War I and II.
I can still hear the thoughts and questions in my brain, which went something like this: “If history is so cut and dried as our textbooks make out, why did the German soldiers relentlessly pu...
