On 24th October Fox News announced that Dr Michael Chez had begun an FDA approved trial of 30 children (using cord blood commercially stored by their parents) who were subsequently diagnosed with Autism. Dr Chez wants to see if the children’s own stem cells will reverse the autism, and has “high hopes” that the stem cells will do this.
The children have no genetic marke...

Hey there, Dr Mark Reeves.
I read your opinion in the Nelson Mail on Stuff.co.nz today. Anti-vaccinators Immune to reason? (PDF here) Are you open to "discussion"?
You say, "The fear-mongering and negative publicity caused immunisation coverage to drop to only 30 per cent in the UK in 1975. There were 200,000 extra notifications in the UK over the next 15 years, and many possibly preven...

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.

WE are told that today, three in 100 mothers has gestations diabetes, but that in 10 years time, it will be 25 in 100. What an amazing crystal ball they have. Or perhap...

A long time ago - 2007 to be precise, the first medical article was published showing that breast milk contained stem cells. Perhaps the mainstream media didn't know what to do with this information. After all, most discussion is about the use of stem cells from aborted foetuses, for trying to correct disease, or parents who stored their child's cord blood, then want to use it t...

It is time the discussion about breast milk changed to fact, not denial. Yes, there should be labels on formula, just as there are labels on cigarettes.
But if formula feeding parents really mean business in terms of accepting that breast is best, then they should be campaigning for a nationwide breast milk bank.
It is also important that people like Lisa Watson, understand a wee bit of his...
