For Millennia, the Moon has been linked to Fertility, Healing and Creativity. It was the Goddess for Fertility. None of our ancestors, however, had to wonder if a Robot on the moon might have implications for Fertility. If you think last week's Lunar Landing of an Intuitive Machine Robot could have nothing to with Fertility – think again. We normally link medicine to the … [Read more...] about Fertility, the Moon and the Military
This post continues the Silencing Safety, Lonesome Heroines, and Uterine Roulette theme of Consent. It is a twin birth with In Secula Seculorum. The original Xmas was not a peaceful event, nor is this Xmas, and this is not a peaceful post. It hinges on the work of Peter Selley - who is not responsible for any irreverence or edginess in tone. The Very Dead of Winter It is a … [Read more...] about No Room at the Inn
This post continues with the Lonesome Heroines theme - Consent. It needs reading in conjunction with Peter Selley's Coming Clean on Neonatal Deaths. The fact these posts deal with vaccines is semi-irrelevant - they are about a development model, a playbook, set up with SSRIs that industry now apply across all products. Our Bodies, Ourselves, a book by the Boston Women's … [Read more...] about Uterine Roulette and Consent
This post runs hand in hand with Women and Children First by Peter Selley. Both posts link to a BMJ Consent Article and Vaccine contre la bronchiolite: Pfizer Essais en zone d'ombre by Ariane Denoyel for Blast, a French investigative journalism unit. Peter Selley first contacted me in April 2020. As I now know Peter has an impeccable background in common sense. He and his … [Read more...] about Silencing Doctors Silencing Safety
Back in October 2021, I was talking to Patrick about ADHD and his book Obedience Pills. ADHD has since become a very big and polarizing issue in the UK. Katinka Newman has had a prominent and hard-hitting article in the Daily Mail two weeks ago on these issues. There have been earlier RxISK posts on ADHD Nation, and Is there such a thing as Adult ADHD and many posts on the … [Read more...] about The Day the Science Died
The European Pharmaceutical Industry, in the guise of EFPIA, has a stranglehold on the European Commission in terms of policies for vaccination promotion and acquisition of healthcare data. Healthcare data is essential for Pharma to collect commercially useful realworld evidence of clinical illnesses and prescribing habits and trends. Both campaigns are supported directly or … [Read more...] about Remind Your Sister to get Vaccinated
This post tackles two RxISK themes - ADHD and Polypharmacy. While working through Pfizer's Serious Adverse Event narrative file, see The Fog of a Special Medical Operation, the term ADHD - attention deficit hyperactive cropped up quite often. There was one predictable feature to this - all cases came from the United States with none at the moment from Argentina, Brazil, … [Read more...] about ADHD and Polypharmacy. American Conditions?
RxISK began in 2012. One of its main goals was to offer people an opportunity to report problems they had on treatments – any treatment – and generate a report they could take to a doctor in the hope this might get the doctor to take their problem seriously. I had seen my first cases of Post-SSRI Sexual Dysfunction (PSSD) in 2000, had been writing about withdrawal since the … [Read more...] about Sensory Receptors, Small Fibres and Neuropathy
Black Robe, White Coat spirals out from Sanctuary Trauma, The Invisible Doctor and Strangers in the Room. Black Robe, a book by Brian Moore, was published in 1985. It centred on a Jesuit (Black Robe) Mission to convert the People of what is now called Quebec in the 1630s. Movie here. An early scene from the movie shows a group of Algonquin watching a clock strike the … [Read more...] about Black Robe, White Coat
Lots of people complain of cognitive problems on or after taking medications, whether psychotropic drugs, cholesterol lowering statins, asthma drugs like montelukast, or fluoroquinolone antibiotics. They often use the word “Brain Fog” to cover this. Women get Brain Fog in pregnancy that can linger afterwards. People with Long Covid complain of Brain Fog as do the Covid … [Read more...] about Brain Fog: What is it? How to Treat it.
