Problems with Science

    Here’s a pot-pourri (a miscellaneous anthology) of intriguing and interesting science. I’m posing the questions but not telling you how to get the answers till the end. 1. The most powerful nutrient on Earth is not a food, a vitamin, a mineral or a phytonutrient. It’s very abundant in this universe and could solve almost […]

    You have heard and read me saying for years that brain and mind are not the same; that the extended mind is outside the physical body; that memory is in the surrounding encapsulation of the body, not in our tissues (which leads to the concept of a low-level “cellular memory”). Mechanistic brain science, on the […]

    Supplements caused no deaths in 2014. This says it all. The great orthomolecular nutritionist doctor, Abram Hoffer, MD, PhD, always said: “No one dies from vitamins.” He was right when he said it and he is still right today. But that cannot be said of orthodox medicine. In the year 2000, Dr. Barbara Starfield, from […]

    A Pimple On The Nose of God Talking To You Hi there Everybody, Scrooge here! Actually, one of my subscribers last weeks wrote to me angrily and described me as “worse than Scrooge”! Apparently his interpretation of Christmas goodwill is that everyone MUST see things his way, or they are wicked and contemptible. It was […]

    Here’s something both fascinating and creepy at the same time regarding cell phone dangers. Texting on your smartphone, it seems, will likely put you into a dream or trance-like state, according to new electroencephalogram recordings (EEGs). Discovering a new EEG brainwave is pretty sensational anyway; it’s technology that’s been around for about a century! But […]

    It could happen. If we lose our range of effective antibiotics and create antibiotics resistance, we’ll lose a lot more too: no more sophisticated interventions, like organ transplants, pacemakers, joint replacement and care of preterm infants, will become more difficult or even too dangerous to undertake. Minor wounds and trauma will once again become life-threatening […]

    Well, it’s Halloween tomorrow! Silly signs, placards, costumes and revelries. People go daft for a day and have fun. It’s also the vaccine comedy season, with governments having their annual BIG JOKE on us! “Get Your Flu Shot Here” signs are all over the parking lots and at the doors of supermarkets and pharmacies. Every […]

    OK, Let’s Poke Some Fun! Having lived in the USA for a dozen years, I am struck by the most common marketing technique used here, which is outrageous and shocking lies! Just make any wild claim you like, to get the sale. So long as you get rich doing it, everybody seems to approve (sort […]

    Now I’m back home for the winter, after the wonderful summer which included my 70th birthday…5-star luxury cruise of the Nile (see photos), I’m settling down to some work… No, really, I am. Back To Work I have recently done a webinar (if you missed it, you can listen to the recording here)… But, what’s […]

    Doctors think they’re so smart.  As one of them, I can tell you that being smart doesn’t always mean doctors have their patients’ best interests at heart.  I’ve seen it more and more over the last two decades. I’ve been in the medical field for a long time.  Long enough to see unbelievable medical breakthroughs […]

    Years ago I used to run a section in my newsletter about REALLY stupid science. Some of it would just make you laugh. Today a howler came across my desk, under the title: Football Fans May Overestimate Chances of Favorite NFL Team (NFL is National Football League for you non-Americans—not soccer, remember). It starts off: […]

    Unless you live on the Planet Zod (so remote you’re off the air) you would have been aware of the rash of news reports about mysterious deaths among holistic doctors. On the face of it, these are way too many to be just a coincidence. But there’s more mystery. Most died very violently, definitely NOT […]

    Mike Adams, the self-styled Health Ranger is way out of step with reality. He campaigns against ADHD and ADD, claiming such conditions don’t exist and are an “invented” diagnosis. That’s an insult to troubled parents. But it is also a serious slander against doctors like me who, for the past three or four decades, have […]

    “A truth’s initial commotion is directly proportional to how deeply the lie was believed. When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a lunatic.” –Dresden James This week sees the launch of my new book Medicine Beyond (at last!)
