The title words above are not mine. They are those of Richard Smith who was the editor of The BMJ until 2004.
This passage, in an article he wrote, I found to be quite shocking and I thought I was quite cynically robust!?
They all had a lead author who purported to come from an institution that didn’t exist and who killed himself a few years later. The trials were all published in prestigious neurosurgery journals and had multiple co-authors. None of the co-authors had contributed patients to the trials, and some didn’t know that they were co-authors until after the trials were published. When Roberts contacted one of the journals the editor responded that “I wouldn’t trust the data.” Why, Roberts wondered, did he publish the trial? None of the trials have been retracted.https://blogs.bmj.com/bmj/2021/07/05/time-to-assume-that-health-research-is-fraudulent-until-proved-otherwise/
I’ll back up a little.
Tonight, I read in The Daily Telegraph, an article entitled Skin cancer vaccine based on Covid jab technology hailed as a game changer in first trials, which at face value seemed quite well researched and reasonable but, as usual for me, I was drawn to the comments section of the article to see what the DT readership “house view” was regarding it.
And I found this remarkable and self-explanatory comment.
The link in the comment is to Richard Smith’s article in the thebmjopinion website dated 5th July 2021 and the allegations he makes are very concerning.
Although I’m not religious, providence seems to be at work because the timing is impeccable; last night I watched Andrew Bridgen valiantly take on pfizer live in the house of commons and I wrote about it here.
And two of the points he made were about a conflict of interest of the MHRA, being funded by big pharma, and whistle-blower allegations of a trial cover-up.
You can watch his whole speech in the video below.
I wonder if anyone in the mainstream media has the testicles to run with this; probably not.
But I’ve tried to do my bit as other certified tinfoil hatted loonies like me are doing on twitter.
Maybe the plan is to have all of us unvaccinated loonies crash our cars – seriously, there is a recent published paper entitled “COVID Vaccine Hesitancy and Risk of a Traffic Crash” – I’m sure that paper is legitimate!
[Full disclosure: the crashed black sports car in the post title is mine 😜. Still not going to get vaccinated though 🙄.]
We are rapidly descending into societal farce!
One thought on “Time to assume that health research is fraudulent until proven otherwise?”
