Selection-bias in so called Science: Purposeful IGNORE-ance of evidence is worse than ignorance of evidence; Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. Evidence-based-science with selection-bias is not science; it is false political rhetoric; it is everywhere. How  EBM fails from bias  ---Abram Hoffer.   Omitting  sciences’ nutrition and toxicity knowledge leads to treatment failures and to increased morbidity, to increased medical and social costs, and to avoidable mortality. This is especially so in the overlaps between chronic sub clinical scurvy and the rest of science.  Cognitive Biases    Codex   Intellectual Idiots: Scientism    Sugar Lobby NonScience   Sugar Addiction   


We attempt, herein: To link to important science that has been forgotten, is not taught, or remains left-out-of conventional medical doctrines; To correct the balance of the scales of evidence that are tipped to the wrong side, tipped to the side that increases medical treatment failures. Half of medical reporting may be false; journalists cannot detect science from frauds.  Fake “peer review” rings are reported in recent Washington Post articles. Hormesis: Extrapolation from limited to general: Linear proportionality rules often fail, leading to catastrophe.  Psychological study of bias formation.  CFS Study Falsified.    New Scientific Error Checking Methods    Some of Most Published Medical Science is False


Zika Virus Overstated Threat?  By Dr Mercola. Zika Update: Other Factors Predominate.   Zika and West Nile anti-virus  countermeasures: Liposomal Vitamin C [L-AA] (or IV sodium ascorbate) For extreme cases (12 year chronic Lyme disease) IV-AA, 100 grams/80 Lb body weight sodium ascorbate per day, 5 or 6 days per week, for 4 weeks or until sudden remission of Lyme disease symptoms, followed by one additional week of treatment.  One gram of L-AA may equal 6 grams of IV ascorbate in sodium form solution. See Cathcart and Levy  12,000 pregnant Colombian women infected with Zika virus, No cases of microcephaly were reported in their babies as of May 2016.

Here you will find both historical and new complementary, functional medical information about: 

Rheumatoid Arthritis, Rheumatic illness, Autoimmune diseases, Microbial infections, Inflammation, Toxins, Allergies, Immune dysfunctions, and Nutritional factors in healing.  Below, under “Latest Findings”, are many links to Vitamin C’s therapeutic-range pharmacokinetics and related biochemical global knowledge on ascorbate, which can be used to moderate chronic and acute inflammation and allergic flares and which in therapeutic level dosages has been found to act as an antimicrobial and antiviral antibiotic.   Dr Tom Levy, IV-C, Dr Trevor Marshall, Making Liposomal Vita-C,  CWD bacteria,    SV-40,    Medical Conference Videos   Blood is infected by pleomorphic (shape changing) microbial infections: Proof.  Lyme Disease Persistence,    LD Microbiology,  LD Overview,  Brain Biofilm Causes Alzheimer’s Disease.    LD Caused Autoimmune Gene Shift,    Herbal Treatments for Urinary Tract Inflammation and Prostatitis.    ALS Neural Sheath Gene-Molecule Miss-regulation.  EpiPen Functional Alternative.   ER Cures Toxic Sepsis Blood Infections.   Ebola cure blocked by medical bureaucrats.


WARNING, Bad science amounts to fraud:  GMO foods cause genetic changes in animals fed the foods  The effects are cumulative, caused by promoter virus components which cascade to destabilize fed-animals’ cellular gene sequences. GMO foods containing insecticides or herbicides also alter the gut microbiome in newly-discovered, adverse ways. GMO as generally regarded as safe (GRAS) has been falsified, yet FDA has not revised its policy.  This new disaster is hundreds of times worse than the  thalidomide tragedy.   Dr. Mercola’s scientific GMO links.  Alarming increases in genetically-caused diseases and nutritional malfunctions are poorly understood by “scientists” who are purposefully changing our food molecules’ structures in known ways that have unknown (“forgotten”) consequences.  Aircraft cabin air contaminated by toxic organophosphates from engine lubricating oil.


Ignore-ance of “known knowns” and of  “known unknowns” and ignorance of “unknown unknowns” are passed off as GRAS, generally regarded as safe.  Tip of one (CDCP) intellectual fraud iceberg: A professor confesses. Sloth in assessing dangers and risks crossed with vigor in deploying creative genetic modifications. Budget allocations favor increased risks.  Thoughtless, man-made “ignore-science” is not worthy of godhood nor of political worship.  “To err is human”, so we must make a superhuman effort?  This leads to disasters. The rug of science’s history is bumpy with forgotten-on-purpose mistakes. 


Mexican Vaccine Tragedy Monday, May 11, 2015. by Mike Adams, The Health Ranger  52 children vaccinated with75% morbidity rate. 2 deaths, 37 hospitalized, 1 critical, 14 serious, 22 stable.

VaXXed : Go see the movie.  Dr.Wakefield’s compelling documentary shows that the CDC lied:  MMR vaccine data showing links to ASD were suppressed for policy reasons. This led to lie-based vaccine court wrong decisions (combined MMR-Autism cases) and massive legal injustice against the ~13,000 losing families. Opt-out lawsuits based on MMR-caused brain damage succeeded (~$6 M to ~20 M per claim) for a tiny number of injured families.  Perhaps 20 million lives were destroyed, shortened, or disabled by dangerous-vaccine-caused encephalitis. Claims paid are a tiny fraction of the actual damages to individuals and families.  Open Letter to Carmen Paun on Wakefield in Trump-led government.  Trump Tweets on Vaccines     UK MMR Vaccine Safety Board Frauds


Warning: Significantly increased incidence of Bells Palsy and other neural inflammation reactions after multiple-vaccine administration of Menactra or  Menveo  (Meningitis) vaccines along with other vaccines. (HPV, Gardasil; Influenza, Hepatitis B, DPT, and others) Ten week delay due to overlap of training periods of multiple vaccines. Adjuvants in vaccines can also lead to training autoimmune inflammation  (ASIA, Schoenfeld) to allergfic reactions to chronic infections and to new allergies to food molecules that pass into blood via leaky gut membranes. Meningitis vaccines are now becoming mandatory, making risk of autoimmune reactions harm a more probable adverse outcome. No assumption of liability by the states mandating the harmful vaccinations, has been legislated. VAERS under reporting of incidents is notorious. This is medical and scientific insanity, derived from lack of scholarship and corrupted EBM, a feed back loop of ignorance.


Total damages is, perhaps, 1014 dollars.

Who bears this cost?


 Costly conflict of interest between regulators, government, health insurers  and victims’ families, caused by mistakes and ignored science. ASD incidence is now 1 in 50., and is still increasing.  The MMR and other vaccines harming continues worldwide.  A consensus of denial is massively promoted by the media led by the pro-vaccine conspiracy of health agencies, WHO and vaccine makers. Bill Gates.     Age of Autism Website   


Regulatory changes can reverse this tragic trend: Vaccine maker liability, Fix bad vaccine safety testing, No vaccine clusters,  No early vaccinations, Delay (several years) schedule, Don’t vaccinate sick children, Vitamin C supplements, Real ascorbate Needs, Fix VAERS/VICP.  Dr John Ely on medical delivery problems and fixes.


Other measures to improve vaccination safety: Eliminate problem adjuvants (like squalene) that cause persistent autoimmune inflammation. Rate-limit aluminum toxicity dosages. Limit total vaccinations (cumulative adjuvant poisoning) per year. Test-for and eliminate chronic (ear/gut/biofilm) infections before vaccination. They generate endotoxins that create ascorbate high-intake dependency, a cause of vaccine adverse reactions.  Test  [AA]/[DHAA] ratio before vaccinations, delay if in danger range.


Require government(s) to pay for lifetime universal major-medical disability/liability insurance [>$25 million per family per child] whenever it makes opt-out for vaccinations illegal.  See: MMR Meningitis links  Vaccine Mass Deaths  Kalokerinos  GWI & ASD: Clustered Vaccines or Not  California SB277 is unwise.  Bad MMR in the Past: Canada, England, Brazil bad MMR recipes all causing Meningitis.   Baby Yurko Trial Vaccines or SBS?


GWI caused by multiple problematic vaccines; Live-virus vaccine mycoplasma contamination,  Hepatitis vaccine with live HIV virus caused AIDS epidemic:

In one case a Gulf War Illness patient X was injected with an experimental oil-adjuvant (squalene adjuvant) placebo vaccine without the vaccine’s payload. He came down with GWI symptoms. The vaccine maker used the adjuvant “placebo” so he could say his vaccine had “comparable” adverse statistics to the placebo. The placebo itself was highly problematic.  Could GWI  be due to routine use of  bad experimental vaccines with dangerous adjuvants? 


Scientific ethics violation?  Intentional mistakes? Safety rules violation?  Where is the testing and investigation? Google [squalene adjuvant side effects].  ASIA Autoimmune Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants: Aluminum adjuvant-induced autoimmunity, a survey article with multiple referenced links. 


Wyeth memo (1979) recommends randomizing DPT vaccine lots’ distribution to minimize the chance of a “bad lot” causing a cluster tragedy with all adverse events in one location. The VAERS reporting system’s intrinsic reporting failures will hide the pattern of harm to the CDC and the public from “hot-lots” of vaccine that cause clusters of adverse reactions.


One of HPV’s lead scientists warns of adverse high-risk/low-benefit ratio for HPV vaccines, 44 reported deaths and 15,000 VAERS reported incidents with anti cancer “benefits” still unproven,  in a paper delivered at the 4th International Conference on Vaccination at Reston, Virginia. HPV warnings.  Google[site: RA-Infection-Connection.com vaccines], Mercola HPV Update.


Vaccine adjuvants (aluminum) are now proven toxic but are still assumed safe.  Dr. Mercola’s article. De Niro’s New Documentary Neural inflammation, gene shifts to permanent inflammatory modes, autism neural inflammation vaccine adjuvant links, MS after vaccinations in Japan.  Improper, toxic placebos used in all vaccine evaluations: corrupt approval methods, bad science, and unscientific regulatory malpractice. 


Many decades of failure to fund tests for safety of unsafe aluminum adjuvants suggest regulatory incompetence or corruption. Regulators fail to distinguish between false assumptions of safety and continued lack of proper testing which would prove adjuvants’ dangers.  Failure to consider related toxicological science’s body of knowledge about injected adjuvants.  Recent animal experiments reconfirm aluminum causes immune hyperactivity and persistent neural dysfunctions. Dr. Mercola’s update on MMR vaccine’s failures.  Live polio vaccines’ dangers.  Our Anti-Vaccine Links, Discussion and References.  Google [Vaccines peripheral neuropathy]


Incomplete application of discovered Science means our decision making flawed. What is taught and applied is not sufficient for correctness. We fail to understand the many complex mistakes that have already been made.  Microbe-caused horizontal genetic transfer  biochemical mutations are comparable to the nuclear- radiation-caused genetic damage that we justifiably fear. Dr. Mercola on human microbiome.  Our microbiome’s health and genetic balance is destroyed by pesticides and herbicides in GMO foods. This genetic imbalance leads to malnutrition and biochemical dysfunctions in cellular mitochondria.  Dr. Mercola on Fish Nutrition: Both Benefits and Dangers


Gene Expression control by sugars,  starches and hormones  Animal, plant, and microbe gene expression is controlled by our nutrition: Sugars, starches, salicylic acid are notable control factors for our own genes and the genes in our microbiome.   Xylitol can reduce plaque formation in our endothelia’s microbiomes. Stevia potentiates tetracycline effectiveness. There is evidence that high-carb and certain carbs eaten can selectively modulate our biochemistry,  Ketosis (absence of carbs) can have beneficial healing effects.  HFCS is harmful.
