Creating Waves of Awareness

Bernie Simon's Blog – June 2009 Archive (7)

A few links

I just wanted to let people know that I keep a list of links on Delicious about recent news articles on medicine that I find interesting. Also this article in Bloomberg about Zicam is the most accurate and fact filled I've found, much better than the axe grinding in the Associated Press, and I'd suggest referring people to it.

Death by Doctor

It looks like Michael Jackson's doctor is being "sought by police" in connection with Michael Jackson's sudden death. The facts are not yet clear, but the lack of cooperation with the police is suspicious. It may be that this is another celebrity dead from the allopathic medical treatment he received. Only time and more evidence will tell. As everyone remembers, Heath Ledger died last year from a lethal combination of drugs prescribed by his doctor and Elvis Presley before that. Death from… Continue

Two Celebrities Dead

Farrah Fawcett and Michael Jackson died today. Farrah died after a long struggle with cancer. Her treatment was mostly conventional, but there was a controversy several years ago when she travelled to Germany to be treated with Iscador, the Anthroposophic cancer treatment. I haven't heard any blowback yet from the usual quackbusters about this.

Michael Jackson died at home and there's no word yet on the cause. I always thought, here is a case for homeopathy, but as far as I know he… Continue

Homeopathy Works

I spoke with a friend today who used to suffer from migraines. Used to, that is, before I persuaded her to visit a local homeopath. She told me today that she hasn't had one in a month, when she's had them regularly for thirty years. And she told me, with amazement in her voice, the arthritis in her hand has disappeared and several other minor problems cleared up as well. This comes as no surprise to anyone who knows homeopathy. But I'd thought I'd post this to remind folks that among the high… Continue

How the Game Is Played

Some people may not be aware of the nature of the opposition that alternative medicine and homeopathy faces, so I'd like to explain it here. There's a long lived public relations campaign against alternative medicine in the United States and Great Britain. When I say public relations campaign, I mean exactly that: an agency sends out press releases every so often to their friends in the media to reinforce their talking points. Google News makes it easy to notice these press releases. You'll see… Continue

Vaccine Study Bias

It's no secret that the medical journals work hand in glove with the pharmaceutical industry that pays their way. A new analysis looked at clinical trials of the flu vaccine and found that drug company money is the top factor in publication of vaccine studies:

"Flu vaccine studies that are funded by industry are significantly more likely to be published in prestigious journals… Continue

The Sardonic Smile

The solution to an old riddle leads to a new rubric for an old remedy:

Thousands of years before the Joker gassed comic book victims into a grinning death, Phoenician colonists on the island of Sardinia were forcing smiles on the faces of the dead. Now scientists say they know just how the ancient seafaring traders created the gruesome smiles some 2,800 years ago—not with a toxic gas like Batman's… Continue
