The Solidarity Argument for Forced Mass Vaccination Turned Out to Be False

The Solidarity Argument for Forced Mass Vaccination Turned Out to Be False

We now have the data in black and white from Pfizer itself: already when the vaccines were launched, it was known that they would not protect from the spread of infection. And yet, millions of people have taken the vaccine, mainly because of the heavy social pressure felt through the solidarity argument. Therefore, they have […]

A Critique of The Lancet COVID-19 Commission

A Critique of The Lancet COVID-19 Commission

Opinion | The Lancet recently released its long-awaited COVID-19 commission report. The report well reflects the current state of public health science and addresses the business needs of The Lancet. It may have been naïve to expect further, but health is an important area and should be taken more seriously. The level of obfuscation of evidence, misrepresentation of […]

The Naked Absurdity of Global Public Health

The Naked Absurdity of Global Public Health

Opinion | Something is fundamentally wrong with global public health. More accurately, something is fundamentally wrong with the mindset of global health professionals, particularly those in positions of leadership. It has become normal to speak, repeat, and defend complete absurdity, as if illusions and fantasies are real. There are no sanctions for operating in this […]

The Experts Still Pushing Coerced Jabs

The Experts Still Pushing Coerced Jabs

Opinion | Medical ethics is about protecting society from medical malfeasance and the self-interest of the humans whom we trust to manage health. It is therefore disturbing when prominent people, in a prominent journal, tear up the concept of medical ethics and human rights norms. It is worse when they ignore broad swathes of evidence, […]

The Declining Standards of FDA Drug Approvals

The Declining Standards of FDA Drug Approvals

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has a legal obligation to protect the public and ensure that the benefits of medicines outweigh the harms before being marketed to people. But the agency’s increasing reliance on pharmaceutical industry money has seen the FDA’s evidentiary standards for drug approvals significantly decline. The Need for Speed Since the enactment of […]

What Weakened Immune Systems Have Wrought for Children

What Weakened Immune Systems Have Wrought for Children

In the report of June 24, 2022, the World Health Organization (WHO) noted a further rise from 450 cases to 920 cases of acute hepatitis in children worldwide from May 26 to June 24, mostly (78 percent) in children under the age of 6 years. Unfortunately, forty-five children required liver transplants and 18 children died. Most […]

Model Misspecification and Grossly Inflated Estimates of Lives Saved

Model Misspecification and Grossly Inflated Estimates of Lives Saved

In a recent study published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases, Watson et al. apply mathematical modeling to estimate that mass COVID-19 vaccinations saved between 14-20 million lives worldwide during the first year of the COVID-19 vaccination program. Previous Brownstone [Institute] articles by Horst and Raman have already pointed out several erroneous assumptions in the study regarding infection- vs. vaccine-derived immunity duration […]

When Believing the Health Authorities Requires Denying Obvious Realities

When Believing the Health Authorities Requires Denying Obvious Realities

[Earlier this month],  The Daily Sceptic published two articles reviewing some studies purported to show COVID-19 vaccines are useful for countering so-called long-COVID, lingering symptoms after COVID infection. The conclusion of the author, who is an ex-senior scientist with the U.K. government, is that the vaccinations do not in fact prevent those symptoms. In addition, […]

The Rise of Hepatitis

The Rise of Hepatitis

The number of previously healthy children younger than 16 years of age with mysterious hepatitis cases have doubled in two weeks to 450 cases worldwide, including 11 deaths. Most cases have been reported in the U.K. (160) and the U.S. (currently, 180). In Europe most cases are found in Italy (35) and Spain (22). Over 8-14 percent […]

Why are Standards So Lax on COVID Drug Approvals?

Why are Standards So Lax on COVID Drug Approvals?

Many scientists made a career fighting for better regulatory standards. Strangely, when it comes to the regulatory policy around COVID-19, they are dead quiet. First, consider that EUA ( emergency use authorization) is like accelerated approval. Both require lower levels of evidence, and are predicated on the fact that we’re dealing with a situation that […]
