Before We Go – Amazon Book-Banning

When I learned that Evil Amazon had banned a book, I of course had to buy a copy to find out from what Amazon was protecting our fragile minds.  I paid an unsuccessful visit to AbeBooks – forgetting that in this highly competitive world Abebooks is owned by … Amazon.  Now my dander was up!  OK, it is possible to buy the book directly from: https://www.texemarrs.com/

The book in question is by James Perloff, “Covid-19 and the Agendas to Come”, ISBN 978-0-9668160-4-4, published by Refuge Books.  So what is the fuss about?  What does Evil Amazon not want us simple-minded easily-confused people to see?... [Read More]

Tucker Carlson: Big Tech censors COVID-19 video featuring doctors

QUOTE; “Social media giants pulled the video of doctors in lab coats talking about coronavirus research and they hid it from the public.”

IMHO; a darn good presentation, I encourage you to watch it. The video has been posted under a different heading, what I am hoping to illustrate is his observations on this and the reason(s) for the demon-crats and big business and internet giants blocking it thereby influencing the election.

A whole new version of dirty politics…... [Read More]

Public Health versus Individual Health

Over many years of intermittently reading various medical journals I began to notice that the arguments in favor of public health measures were often based solely on society-wide benefits.

The Science Is Settled

In 2005, epidemiologist and physician John Ioannidis published the controversial and famous paper, Why Most Published Research Findings Are False in PLOS Medicine. He showed there were sound reasons to be skeptical of most published research, especially those results that rely on statistical analysis to draw conclusions about the relationship between two phenomena. Familiar examples:
• How effective is a drug?
• Does a substance in the environment increase the incidence of cancer?
• What is health effect of a food?
As he suggests, the science in most of these cases is far from settled.

By 2014, Ioannidis’s fame had grown to pop-science level. He was invited to do one of the Talks at Google, where he was given a fawning introduction by the earnest and callow member of the “People Operations Team.” He can do no wrong.... [Read More]
