Dr Ben Goldacre, Online Abuse, Bullying and the Suicide of a Gentle British Doctor

________________Child Health Safety_________________

Dr Ben Goldacre engages in online bullying and abuse and his BadScience forum is a notorious centre for some of what seem to be amongst the worst of the internet’s trolls, bullies and abusers.

So when a troubled gentle soul takes his own life after years of bullying, abuse and harassment from some from Dr Ben Goldacre’s BadScience forum, Ben Goldacre bears a heavy responsibility. 

On Thursday August 15th 2013 after years of relentless online bullying, abuse and harassment from some of Dr Ben Goldacre’s BadScience forum members, family physician Dr Mark Struthers took his own life.

In life Dr Struthers tried to take them on by challenging them online, posting comments on blogs as “Cybertiger“.  Their response routinely was to gang up in hordes to attack abuse and disparage him personally. 

Dr Mark Struthers was a gentle man and doctor who was well aware of the…

VaxXed: A Divine Meeting

BLAB: The Bad [Lyme] Attitude Blog

It’s the scandal they don’t want you to know about; the movie they don’t want you to see. But that’s all the more reason to see it. Deep down, we’re all brats who don’t want to do what we’re told, right? Which is one reason I’m surprised by how many people are still lining up to get their shots like obedient goody-two-shoes. What happened to the Great American ideal of the rebel that this country was built on? Why are we so compliant when such behavior flies in the face of everything “American?”

This is a problem. Let’s see here…

Now, pretend I’m your mom or principal or intimidating authority figure of your choosing, and DO WHAT YOU’RE TOLD:

Don’t go see this movie. Really–you’ll hate it worse than Brussels sprouts. It will only make you think harder than you like to think, and question things that don’t need questioning…

Lyme Awareness: You Cannot Inject Fungi Into Humans

BLAB: The Bad [Lyme] Attitude Blog

I can’t think of a simpler way to explain “what is chronic Lyme disease.”

Remember the New England Compounding Center meningitis scandal of 2012? Their injectable steroids were fungally contaminated. They sickened at least 800 people and killed 64. You cannot inject fungi into humans.

“On December 17, federal prosecutors in Boston unsealed a 131-count federal criminal indictment related to the outbreak. It charged 14 former NECC employees, including president Barry Cadden and pharmacist Glenn Chin, with a host of criminal offenses. It alleged that from 2006 to 2012, NECC knowingly sent out drugs that were mislabeled, unsanitary, or contaminated—forming the basis for a massive RICO indictment against six individuals, including Cadden and Chin. The RICO count alleged 68 overt acts—including 25 counts of second-degree murder in seven states against Cadden and Chin. If convicted, Cadden and Chin could potentially get life in prison.[15]”

De Niro takes the giant leap

Marco Cáceres di Iorio

“Nobody seems to want to address [the issue of whether vaccines cause autism] or they say they’ve addressed it and it’s a closed issue. But it doesn’t seem to be because there are many people who will come out and say, ‘No. I saw my kid change like overnight. I saw what happened and I should have done something and I didn’t.’ So there’s more to this than meets the eye, believe me. The thing is to shut it down—there’s no reason to. If you’re scientists, let’s see, let’s hear. Everybody doesn’t want to hear much about it, it’s shut down. … There is a link [between vaccines and autism] and they are saying there isn’t and there are… other things there. I don’t know, I’m not a scientist but I know because I’ve seen so much reaction of just ‘let’s find out the truth.’ … I think the movie [Vaxxed

Gary Wormser reports global immunosuppression from OspA/Borrelia

Cryme Disease - Unscrambling the CDC's DNA Patent Profiteering Bullshit

Somatoformia, a closer look:

“We have previously demonstrated that proteins of B. burgdorferi are capable of modulating human cellular immune responses [7]. Suppression of in vitro mitogen- or antigen-mediated proliferative responses of lymphocytes and reduced production of interleukin-2 (IL-2) from lymphocytes were demonstrated using protein extracts of B. burgdorferi. These early studies were confirmed by a report of de Souza et al. [8], who observed that B. burgdorferi infection in mice resulted in impaired T and B cell proliferation to mitogens and reduced IL-2 and IL-4 production. The nature of the B. burgdorferi proteins responsible for suppression of cellular immunity has not been defined. In this study we examined the modulating activity of a recombinant outer surface protein A (OspA) vaccine preparation on cellular immune responses.”

The Anti-Science Epidemic and CounterPunch

BLAB: The Bad [Lyme] Attitude Blog

I gotta hand it to the folks at CounterPunch. Let’s just chalk this up as, someone was taking a much-needed vacation and a shoddy opinion piece accidentally slipped through the editorial review crack. During the the time it took me to read the article and write my response, below, the article was unpublished from the Web. Bravo, CounterPunch.

Sirs,

Your site and its information normally are top-notch, well-researched, sensible and factual. Not today. Did someone declare “Opposite Day” when I wasn’t listening? I urge you to unpublish Julian Vigo’s piece of unscientific drivel, lest your reputation be sent down the toilet by this “science philosopher” AKA not-a-scientist but self-important enough to decide who the real scientists are.

In fact, she cites psychology in trying to prove her point that “science” has Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) and Lyme disease all figured out. Former director of the National Institutes of Mental…

Malaise…Lets discuss this!

“Malaise” is the wrong word!!!!!!!

The Other Side Of The Stretcher

Malaise…

Lets discuss this!

I will point out again like I have before, remember, im coming from an RN point of view for the benefit of the patients because I was an active RN until I was no longer able to work because of M.E.

I actually couldn’t respond from a patient point of view because I would lose focus on the subject because I would end up sounding more like an angry patient than a nurse who is very very disappointed because of the lack of the standard of patient care in regards to this illness.

Do you know what “Malaise” is?

Before I get into detail about what “Malaise” is, I just want to point out a few things.

I just recently did another post related to “Malaise”, It probably sounded… very…severely opinionated because of what I named the post.

The post could’ve sounded like a controversy…
