A version of the March conference of the British Society of Ecological Medicine is now available online HERE.. Tragic to report that Dr David Freed, who presided with such warmth and charm over the first session died suddenly in August. He is here quoted:
‘It seems to me that the ethical background to vaccination – giving potentially harmful medications to healthy individuals in the hope of keeping them that way – has never been clearly addressed… Who gave us the right (a) to invade the bodies of healthy people who never asked us to, and (b) to do it not only without explanation of the possible risks, but in some countries even applying coercive pressures, denying the existence of the risks, and suppressing relevant information?’
Freed mentions in the transcript of his introduction that he had been in medical practice 43 years, but I would certainly have made him 10 years younger.
Much to its credit the BSEM provided an almost lone voice in the United Kingdom opposing the General Medical Council findings against Andrew Wakefield and colleagues last year and indeed Wakefield gave a paper at the conference, although it is not included in the present publication.
However, there are several important and valuable papers which AoA readers might like to look at including those by Richard Halvorsen, Lucija Tomljenovic, Christina England, Leslie Botha and Freda Birrell, and Ellen Grant (to mention the papers that were actually presented at the conference). Topics include the dishonesty of the official United Kingdom vaccine programme, fabricated illness allegations, HPV vaccine and autism and the pill.
(Just to mention I had difficulty raising the individual pdf’s on Internet Explorer, but they came up instantly using Firefox).
