The final nail in the coffin of medical research

The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our life-time." Edward Grey
Medical Fraud

Several years ago, I wrote a book called Doctoring Data. It was my attempt to help people navigate their way through medical headlines and medical data.

One of the main reasons I was stimulated to write it, is because I had become deeply concerned that science, especially medical science, had been almost fully taken over by commercial interests. With the end result that much of the data we were getting bombarded with was enormously biased, and thus corrupted. I wanted to show how some of this bias gets built in.

I was not alone in my concerns. As far back as 2005, John Ioannidis wrote the very highly cited paper 'Why most Published Research Findings are False'. It has been downloaded and read by many, many, thousands of researchers over the years, so they can't say they don't know:
Moreover for many current scientific fields, claimed research findings may often be simply accurate measures of the prevailing bias. 1
Marcia Angell, who edited the New England Journal of Medicine for twenty years, wrote the following. It is a quote I have used many times, in many different talks:
It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgement of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine.
Peter Gotzsche, who set up the Nordic Cochrane Collaboration, and who was booted out of said Cochrane collaboration for questioning the HPV vaccine (used to prevent cervical cancer) wrote the book. Deadly Medicine and Organised Crime. [How big pharma has corrupted healthcare].

The book cover states...
The main reason we take so many drugs is that drug companies don't sell drugs, they sell lies about drugs... virtually everything we know about drugs is what the companies have chosen to tell us and our doctors... if you don't believe the system is out of control, please e-mail me and explain why drugs are the third leading cause of death.


WHO: 'Children should not be vaccinated for the moment'

In updated guidance, the World Health Organization said children have milder disease compared to adults and there is not enough evidence to recommend vaccinating children against COVID.

EDITOR'S NOTE: After this article was published on The Defender June 22, the World Health Organization (WHO) edited its latest guidance on who should get the COVID vaccine by removing the sentence: "Children should not be vaccinated for the moment," and instead saying that a panel of experts had found the vaccine "suitable for use" by children over the age of 12. Here's a side-by-side comparison of the WHO website page as it was before it was updated and how it looks now. The red hairline box was added to highlight the sentence that was removed.

Comment: COVID-19 mRNA vaccines likely linked to rare heart condition in kids: CDC panel


FDA to add warning about rare heart inflammation to Pfizer, Moderna vaccines

A nurse Cindy Mendez wearing a protective mask holds a syringe with a dose of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine during the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, at NYC Health + Hospitals Harlem Hospital in the Manhattan borough of New York City, New York, U.S., February 25, 2021.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said on Wednesday it plans to move quickly to add a warning about rare cases of heart inflammation in adolescents and young adults to fact sheets for the Pfizer/BioNTech (PFE.N), and Moderna (MRNA.O) COVID-19 vaccines.

U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advisory groups, meeting to discuss reported cases of the heart condition after vaccination, found the inflammation in adolescents and young adults is likely linked to the vaccines, but that the benefits of the shots appeared to clearly outweigh the risk.

Moderna shares closed down 4.2%, while Pfizer fell 1.4%.

Comment: They can spin it as 'rare' and tell everyone they should not deviate from getting their shots, but the fact remains that these mRNA shots are not "risk free" and therefore any coercion methods being propagated are completely unethical.

Hope for IBS sufferers as new study suggests synthetic tarantula venom could help treat condition

Zoo keeper Jamie Mitchell places a red-kneed tarantula spider on weighing scales at ZSL London Zoo 2020 weigh-in and measurement, in London, Britain, August 27, 2020.
A component of tarantula venom has been identified as a promising treatment for irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), a chronic disorder that currently has no cure. The chemical has been successfully tested on mice.

IBS is a common chronic condition that can cause abdominal pain and other unpleasant symptoms. Exactly why and how it develops remains unclear and there is no specific treatment, though dietary changes may help some patients.

A group of researchers from Australia, the US, and Germany may have discovered a method to significantly improve the quality of life of IBS sufferers by blocking the pain in a targeted way.

The study, as described in the American Chemical Society's Pharmacology & Translational Science journal, was to test a specific protein that can be found in venom produced by some tarantula species.

Comment: While the treatment might help with pain relief, it doesn't appear to treat the cause. For that, we may need to look into our microbiome.

Do doctors understand probability?

© Sebastian Rushworth.com
I'm very interested in how doctors think. How do we use the information gained from talking to and examining a patient to reach a reasonable list of likely diagnoses (a so called "differential")? When we order a test, what specifically are we looking for, and how will we react to the result that comes back? More cynically, I'm curious about the extent to which we understand what the test result actually means. And what are the odds that we will make a correct decision based on the answer we get back?

I think that anyone who has even a partial understanding of what doctors do understands that the practice of medicine, although based on scientific knowledge, isn't a science. Rather it is an art form. And as with all art forms, there are those who excel, and those who plod along, occasionally producing something nice or useful. Most people are probably aware of the fact that if you go to five different doctors with a problem, there is a significant probability that you will get five different answers. Medicine is so complex, with so many different variables to consider, and doctors themselves are so varied in terms of how they think and what they know, that the end result of any one consultation will often vary wildly.

One of the things that always needs to be estimated in any individual consultation is probability. What is the probability that the breast lump is cancer? What is the probability that the fever is due to a serious bacterial infection? When faced with these questions, I think most doctors are more like an experienced chess player than a robot. They act on a feeling, not on a conscious weighing of probabilities. Doctors with a nervous disposition therefore order more tests and prescribe more antibiotics, while those with a more relaxed disposition order fewer tests and prescribe fewer antibiotics.

But how good is the average doctor?

Objective:Health: - Physicians and Researchers Speak Out

O:H header
"You're not a doctor!" How many times have we had this appeal to authority thrown in our faces when trying to make an argument against the dominant narrative of the day? The authoritarian mindset will only accept arguments, no matter how logical and well-reasoned, if they're coming from the mouth of a properly respected authority figure, like a doctor.

This is why it is so valuable when doctors speak out against the narratives of the day. When an authority figure comes forward with narrative shattering info, at least some people (those not too under the spell of the talking heads in the mainstream media) might actually take notice and may even start to think.

On this episode of Objective:Health, we look at some of the brave doctors who have stepped up to speak publicly about the failures of the Covid narrative.

CDC senior scientist: 'We trashed data showing vaccine-autism link in African-American boys'

dr william thompson quote

Here is the full statement by current CDC Senior Scientist on Vaccine-Autism questions: Dr. William Thompson. Stay tuned to this website for an update on the story, soon.
I regret that my [CDC] coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the Journal of Pediatrics.

My primary job duties while working in the immunization safety branch from 2000 to 2006 were to lead or colead three major vaccine safety studies. The MADDSP MMR-Autism Cases Control Study was being carried out in response to the Wakefield Lancet study that suggested an association between the MMR vaccine and an autism-like health outcome. There were several major concerns among scientists and consumer advocates outside the CDC in the fall of 2000 regarding the execution of the Verstraeten study.

Comment: For more details on the revelations of CDC whistleblower Dr. William Thompson, watch the 2016 documentary Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe.

A 13-year-old boy allegedly died from heart problems after getting his second dose of Pfizer's Covid-19 vaccine, according to a viral Twitter post, as health officials begin to link cases of heart inflammation in kids to the jabs.

A Twitter thread went viral on Sunday after a woman claimed that her brother's 13-year-old son had died less than three days after receiving his second dose of Pfizer's Covid-19 vaccine.

"The initial autopsy results (done Friday) were that his heart was enlarged and there was some fluid surrounding it. He had no known health problems. Was on no medications," Tami Burages wrote, with a photo apparently showing her nephew's Covid-19 vaccination record card.

Should You Get Vaccinated?

© TrialSite News
I always get vaccinated. I have been fully vaccinated with the Moderna COVID vaccine. My three daughters have all been vaccinated.

I recently learned that these vaccines have likely killed over 25,800 Americans (which I confirmed 3 different ways) and disabled at least 1,000,000 more. And we're only halfway to the finish line. We need to PAUSE these vaccines NOW before more people are killed.

The CDC, FDA, and NIH aren't disclosing how many people have been killed or disabled from the COVID vaccines. The mainstream media isn't asking any questions; they are playing along. YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and others are all censoring content that goes against the "perfectly safe" narrative so nobody is the wiser. Tony Fauci, the "father of COVID," is still in his job even though all of this is his fault. Cliff Lane, who reports to Tony, is still sandbagging early treatments so that people will falsely believe that the vaccine is the only option. The Democrats are still asleep at the wheel by refusing to request Fauci's unredacted emails from the NIH which will prove he covered up the fact he created the virus in the first place. Biden is clueless urging Americans to vaccinate their kids with a deadly vaccine that has likely killed more than 25,000 Americans so far. Academics in the medical community are nearly all clueless, urging people to get the safe and effective vaccine. When I tried to bring this to the attention of leading academics they told me I was wrong and not to contact them ever again. Sound too hard to believe? I don't blame you. But there is a reason that this article is the most popular article that has ever been on TrialSiteNews with over 1M views so far. It's because everything I've said is true. And nobody will debate me live about it. They all refuse.
