Indulgences

Hilary Butler - Sunday, November 15, 2009

History Buffs will know all about “indulgences”. To put it colloquially, this is where the Roman Catholic church said, “if you don’t give us money to pray for your dead relatives they will languish in purgatory for long periods before they get to Heaven’s gate.” I see, that the Roman Catholic church is revitalizing the “indulgences” doctrine.  Continue Reading


Science without principles

Hilary Butler - Monday, September 28, 2009

You know, I have no problem with scientific principles but I sure have problems when science has no principles. It beggars belief when you read the headlines in a newspaper which says, "More than half million (USA) kids get bad drug reactions". Okay, okay... maybe that's true. Read further, and you'll see it is. But these drug reactions are elective drugs like penicilin, paracetamol, and 'stuff'. Then further down, we read, "similar numbers of hospitalized children - about 540,000 yearly, also have bad reactions to drugs including side effects, medicine mix-ups and accidental overdoses." Okay? Parents are admonished to pay close attention when their children are started on medicines, since "first-time" medication exposures may reveal an allergic reaction." Fine. But. There's a very big BUT here. Continue Reading


More Swine flu porkies

Hilary Butler - Saturday, June 13, 2009

Is the whole of New Zealand gormless? No, but Dr Darren Hunt's face peers out from a box on page three of the Sunday Star Times today, telling us that the problem with swine flu is that no-one in the community has any immunity to it, therefore it will infect far more people than normal flu, and we can't have 20 - 50% of people sick with swine flu, as well as ordinary flu, can we? "That's why we have to slow it down."  Hang on a minute??!!!  Continue Reading


Mandatory Vaccination

Hilary Butler - Wednesday, June 10, 2009

Making vaccines compulsory, isn't something you hear much about in New Zealand media, BUT... if we aren't careful, mandatory vaccination will become law in this country. While those who tweak the strings around the wrists of politicians have kept very quiet in public, in private, there have been, and are, far more intense discussions going on about making vaccines mandatory, than ever before. How do I know? Continue Reading


Swinish Shock Doctrine: Part Two

Hilary Butler - Monday, May 04, 2009

Everywhere we look, we see nothing but pictures of coloured surgical masks as if these have some paranormal ability to “protect” the wearer. These, we presume, work. Right? After all, they are part of the “national plan” to stop the spread of flu viruses right? We’ve been told that the two main means of infection are contact: as in shake someone’s hand, put hand in mouth; picking up droplets from furniture (fomites), or being directly coughed or sneezed over. Right? Masks supposedly are to contain what the infectious people cough out, to protect others, so wearers also assume that masks protect them from the “environment” around them. Why else would people on the streets of Mexico, and doctors, be wearing them? Right? Wrong, actually, on both counts.  Continue Reading


More Mercky Maths

Hilary Butler - Monday, April 06, 2009

According to IMAC “In New Zealand cervical cancer is the third most common cause of cancer in women aged 25 - 44 years.” As usual, no reference. (pdf of IMAC page uplifted here, see page one)  Really. That’s very interesting, because the Auckland District Health Board’s March 2009 4 mb “Nova” Newsletter  says differently. (1st 4 pages uplifted here, because they remove it when the next one comes out.) It says, “for Maori women cervical cancer is the third most common cancer and it is often only caught in the later stages. For New Zealand women overall, it is the ninth most common cancer.” Continue Reading


It takes three

Hilary Butler - Thursday, April 02, 2009

The Health Department Gardasil poster for parents takes the Goebbel’s propaganda award to brain-wash parents. (You might want to click on “Gardasil Poster” and print this out before you read the rest of this blog). It should surprise no-one that the Health Department has learned nothing from the MenZB campaign. As usual, we don’t need to know anything other than their “desired” messages.  Continue Reading


Don't come crying!

Hilary Butler - Monday, March 02, 2009

One of the societal tools used against those who chose not to vaccinate is the “don’t come crying” line. Continue Reading


What's in a word?

Hilary Butler - Saturday, February 28, 2009

The title of our first book came at 1.30 a.m in the morning. I’d been watching a recorded TV programme on the MenZB showing a nurse about to jab a child. She said, “little prick…” The child exploded vocally out of the blocks, and was inconsolable. I thought back to my last phlebotomist’s visit, when the ubiquitous “just a little prick” came out. And the day when she speared a twisted vein and the whole lot swelled up like a golf ball. Continue Reading


Pinnochio's nose and Peter Flegg

Hilary Butler - Saturday, November 29, 2008

As the UK medical gestapo proclaim 1,000 measles cases a national disaster, and go after parents who have refused to vaccinate their children against measles, there is an interesting "discussion" at the BMJ website. Peter Flegg, an infectious disease specialist has made some extraordinary claims. That's nothing new. He's done that at the BMJ for years. For those who want are keenly following the UK situation, here is the debateContinue Reading
