In essence, society’s attention has become focused on vaccination, focused solely on this health treatment. But TREATMENT is not what creates health, treatment is what changes or manages a persons’ symptoms of poor health. Instead of focusing solely on the treatment, there needs to be a shift. We need to evaluate the treatment in the context of the whole - what is working about the treatment? What needs improving? What is failing completely? How does the treatment affect evolution of the species? And how can health be supported moving forward so that the treatment is no longer needed?

The Science is Settled!

In a vaccine discussion it's often proclaimed, "The science is settled!" Well, I'd like to point out what the experts say about this settled and indisputable research which fills the medical journals.

 

Dr. Richard Horton is the Editor-in-Chief of the Lancet, which is one of the most prestigious medical journals in the world. He has stated that much of the published research filling the medical journals today is very poor in quality and even fraudulent. In an article he published within the Lancet, he is quoted as saying (emphasis mine):

...[a] symposium—on the reproducibility and reliability of biomedical research, held at the Wellcome Trust in London last week—touched on one of the most sensitive issues in science today: the idea that something has gone fundamentally wrong with one of our greatest human creations.

 

The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrueAfflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness. As one participant put it, “poor methods get results”. The Academy of Medical Sciences, Medical Research Council, and Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council have now put their reputational weight behind an investigation into these questionable research practices. The apparent endemicity of bad research behaviour is alarming.

 

A statement made by Dr. Marcia Angell, the former Editor-in-Chief of the New England Journal of Medicine (another of the most prestigious medical journals in the world), and a senior lecturer at Harvard Medical School, corroborates Dr. Horton's statement. She says:

It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment 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.

 

Two short videos (a 12 minutes TEDMed Talk with Dr. Ben Goldacre, and a 29 minute documentary on statin drugs) expand on the statements above made by Dr. Horton and Dr. Angell. These two videos provide a condensed summary of how our medical journals came to be in such rough shape, and why we should be very cautious in believing what's currently published in the medical journals. Both videos are specific to pharmaceutical drugs (not vaccines), but almost everything stated in both videos applies to the vaccine research as well.
