Medical terrorism

December 29th 2016, 14:26

In the last six weeks, I’ve met with leaders of ketogenic dietary approaches for cancer in Melbourne and London who were targets of personal and professional attacks, I’ve met families in California who plan to leave the state because they don’t want their kids vaccinated, yet still want to send them to school, and I’ve met doctors in Australia and the US under threat of having their licences revoked because they exempted children at high risk of adverse vaccine reactions.

Yes, cancer treatments and vaccination are still the two most controversial areas between mainstream and so-called alternative medicine—which is strange, as mainstream medicine has not had unparalleled success in treating cancer or protecting people from the diseases targeted by vaccination. And while the available data are neither convincing nor reliable, with remarkably few pharma-independent attempts to pool these data and publish findings in peer-reviewed journals, the status quo is maintained.

The Trump effect in healthcare

November 30th 2016, 08:15

At 35,000 feet over the Pacific between Sydney and LA, I’d hoped this view of our troubled planet offered greater objectivity—but then I read the latest news about the US elections, more reactions to the High Court’s decision re Brexit, the political strife—and bushfires—in Australia . . . with more to come.

I doubt I’m alone in sensing the greatest level of social disquiet since perhaps WWII. I celebrate people’s distrust of governments and big corporations—but it’s the apparent absence of any popular wisdom that might in the past have resulted in an orchestrated rebellion to unseat evil or immoral authorities to replace them with something better.

Brexit means Brexit...

The Conservative Party conference of early October marked the decision by British PM Theresa May to reveal her true sovereign colours following the June referendum. But committed Europhiles won’t like it, as she’ll be doing deals with the likes of Canada, China, India, Mexico, Singapore and South Korea, all of which are willing to engage in free-trade negotiations with the UK—and the excitement in the British air has been palpable.

Even Brexit doubters have raised eyebrows at the prospect of getting rid of the EU-derived red tape that has for years unashamedly strangled many small businesses and their capacity to innovate. The natural-health sector was particularly hard hit, given the precarious legislative balancing acts that many products were forced to endure on the legal borderline between foods and drugs.

Don’t believe the HPV hype

October 14th 2016, 14:10
83 views      

One week last September, the headlines exclaimed to the parents of young children that it was imperative to get their daughters, and even their young sons, vaccinated against human papillomavirus (HPV).

Behind the headlines was a seemingly weighty scientific paper, published in the journal Clinical Reviews of Infectious Diseases, headed by one of the world’s leading HPV experts, Prof Suzanne Garland of the Royal Women’s Hospital in Melbourne, Australia. Supporting her were 14 other HPV experts.

The newspapers echoed various snippets, including that the study involved 187 to 205 million or more doses of HPV vaccines in 129 countries.
