Dr Sharad Paul – an ‘out of the mould’ doctor

Hilary Butler - Saturday, August 09, 2008

Today, the Canvas magazine in the Herald had a very interesting article about Dr Sharad Paul, who arrived in New Zealand in 1991 with a guaranteed job as a plastic surgeon. That is, until they looked at his face, and saw he was an Indian. Continue Reading

Hilary Butler - Saturday, August 09, 2008

In a previous blog, I mentioned the fact that in the interview with Kathryn Ryan, Dr Paul Offit dismissed Hannah Poling's autism following the administration of multiple vaccines as irrelevant.

A prick too close for comfort?

Hilary Butler - Saturday, August 02, 2008

A curve ball was delivered Dr Offit’s way about a week ago, when CBS television investigated the many vested interests behind various vaccine defenders.    When asked to comment on the $1.5 million Merck Sponsored University chair he occupies, and what his other financial vested interests might total, Dr Offit declined to comment. Continue Reading
