FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 17, 2015

Washington, D.C., May 17, 2015: Medical abuse-victims’ rights group Society for Advancement of Scientific Hermeneutics (SASH), announces its Occupy the USDOJ protest beginning June 1, in Washington, D.C. This Occupy movement, led by a group of chronically ill and disabled activists, is a direct result of the medical abuse they say has been inflicted upon them by government and the medical/pharmaceutical corporate complex.

The Occupy leaders state in their criminal charge sheets that there is a common disease mechanism linking Lyme disease, ME/CFS, Gulf War Illness, Fibromyalgia and Autism. Furthermore, to expose such mechanism would reveal rampant fraud and racketeering within the CDC and other entities, as well as the cause of the autism pandemic. All abused patient groups are encouraged to join this peaceful but passionate protest on the steps of USDOJ, 950 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, Washington, DC, USA, from June 1 until…

This Week in #Vaccine News

This Week’s Vaccine News!

Originally posted on BLAB: The Bad [Lyme] Attitude Blog:

I just can’t let these two news items go by without commenting.

1. By now we’ve all heard about the babies dying in Mexico, right?

“Mexico’s public health system has suspended infant vaccines and begun an investigation after two babies died and 29 became ill in an impoverished community in southern Mexico.
The Mexican institute for social security says six of the 29 babies are in grave condition after receiving vaccinations for tuberculosis, rotavirus and hepatitis B.
The cause of the adverse reactions is not known, the institute said Sunday.
It had stopped vaccines across the country on Saturday.
Father Marcelo Perez, a Catholic priest, said families of the babies said they became sick within hours.
The adverse reactions began on Friday and the babies were taken to a hospital in Simojovel, Chiapas, where 93% of the people live in poverty, according to government statistics.”

Big Pharma: Enemies Of Humanity?

Originally posted on ashiftinconsciousness:

Everyone knows about the sick, depraved monsters of the Third Reich – Hitler, Himmler, Mengele and the rest. Well, there is an evil just as insidious on the planet today. It isn’t as widely known as it should be – that’s one of the reasons why it is so insidious. They are predators that are so wealthy and so devious that they are able to hide behind a veil of legality and respectability. Actually, the most treacherous aspect of this story is the fact that they are a significant part of the health industry. Yes, the HEALTH industry.

While hard-working people struggle to make ends meet and take care of their children to the best of their abilities, these traitorous criminals are amassing enormous sums of money to provide “necessary” drugs to ensure a healthy population. Or so we thought.

Now, for the multibillion dollar pharmaceutical corporations to make obscene amounts of money while actually…

Why We Hate OspA: Shortest Explainer Ever

Originally posted on BLAB: The Bad [Lyme] Attitude Blog:

OspA is one of the outer surface proteins of the Lyme spirochete. There are many of them, labeled A, B, C, etc. So A is pretty important, being the first one. The problem with OspA is that it is a TLR2 agonist. Most TLR2 agonists are fungal, so we refer to them as fungal antigens or fungal-like antigens. Scroll down to the list, here: http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/TLR2.

Fungal antigens ‘tolerize’ the immune cells, so they no longer fight off other fungal antigens. (1, 2) They can also cross-tolerize you to other types of infections. (3) The immune system becomes suppressed and multiple herpesviruses (EBV, CMV, HHV-6 to name a few) can be reactivated. (4) This is known as fungal-viral synergy. Due to the immunosuppression, you may not even produce antibodies to these herpesviruses. You also become susceptible to all kinds of opportunistic infections. The NIH refers to this model as Post…

Hip Surgery and ME: Society Has It Wrong

Originally posted on Thoughts About M.E.:

I am proud to share a note that my husband, Ed Burmeister, wrote last week. He initially posted it on Facebook only where it received a lot of attention and was shared more than 250 times. It really resonated with the community.

Therefore, I talked him into allowing me to post it here as well. I am blessed to have such a supportive and loving spouse.

Last Wednesday, I had a complete hip replacement.  It was a short procedure (1-1/2hours). No general anesthesia required.  I was out of bed the day of surgery and home after two days.  On Monday, I started driving again and really could have done so on Saturday already. Yesterday, I returned to work. I was comfortably working away, largely free of pain.  I walk without a limp and with no assistance and am pretty much unrestricted in my activities. I never needed narcotic painkillers after…

The current state-of-affairs is one of unrestrained  managerial authority and absolute power with no meaningful oversight, regulation or accountability.    Moreover, the authority bestowed on this group is both illegitimate and irrational.  The Federation of State Physician Health Programs is composed of American Society of Addiction Medicine “specialists” in “Addiction Medicine.”    The ASAM is not even recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties as a bona fide…

The Lancet’s representation on Social Media on 4th March 2015: Part 2.

The Other Side Of The Stretcher:

The Lancet is a disappointment!

Originally posted on Utting-Wolff Spouts:

As we promised in our post dated 05/03/2015, please find below the communication between Dr Gillberg (Claudia) and The Lancet regarding abuse towards certain members of the ME community by Pam Das, a Senior Editor on that journal. A copy of Claudia’s letter can be found in our previous post; 

Dr Horton’s reply,

Dear Dr Gillberg – Many thanks for your note. We will look into this incident. I appreciate you taking the trouble to write and please be assured that we will take your complaint seriously.

To which Claudia responded:

Dear Richard,

After a couple of weeks, having heard nothing further from Dr Horton, Claudia sent a reminder re his assurance about looking into the incident;
