A YEAR OF REVELATIONS IN HEALTH CARE By Helke Ferrie  Vitality December 2012 All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident. – Arthur Schopenhauer, 1788-1860 The news discussed in this article isn’t actually new. What’s new is that this information is now seen as news. My October and November Vitality features gave examples of mainstream researchers and clinicians who are reporting on how toxic and useless most drugs are. My earlier articles...

Bestselling Psychiatric Drugs Now Linked to Chronic Disease and Medical Malpractice by Helke Ferrie Vitality, November 2012 “The battle against polypharmacy, or the use of a large number of drugs (the action of which we know little, yet we put them into the bodies … the action of which we know less), has not been fought to the finish….

“Dietary Supplements Increase Mortality Rate in Older Women” Or Do They? A Look at the Propaganda Behind the Headlines. By  Helke Ferrie Vitality Magazine November 2011  In medicine, patients are the market force. In that particular court of public opinion, which is informed by the direct experience of what has actually worked and what has harmed people, the likes of Jacobs’ junk science will inevitably wind up in the garbage heap of medical history. And the next time some headline announces that vitamins give you cancer, and that...

Vaccines – The Truth Behind the Tragedy By Dr. Andrew Wakefield, Skyhorse, 2010 Reviewed by Helke Ferrie for Vitality March 2011 In my experience, so-called “controversies,” especially in medicine, are a fight between two parties, one of whom is a liar in danger of losing a lot of money. The current “controversy” over the work of Dr. Andrew Wakefield, and his 1990’s discovery of the relationship between MMR vaccines and its causative potential for autism, is a perfect example. That MMR vaccines are one of the possible causes of...

A New Model of Economics for Christmas Vitality Magazine December-January 2010/2011 By Helke Ferrie “It is assumed that the momentum for change must come from outside the situation, rather than from the self-reflection and creativity of those within the situation to restructure their own patterns of interaction.” From Elinor Ostrom’s  speech when receiving the 2009 Nobel Prize for Economics* Christmas has been largely hijacked by capitalism, it is true – but the underlying desire to meet another’s need and fulfill a loved one’s...

THE INTELLIGENT REVOLUTION How Citizens, Scientists, and Even Politicians are Saying No to Healthcare Fraud BY HELKE FERRIE Vitality April 2010  “He’s a man way out there in the blue, riding on a smile and a shoeshine. And when they start not smiling back – that’s an earthquake.” Death of a Salesman (1949) by Arthur Miller Saying No! is a social responsibility none of us may safely ignore.

BIG PHARMA UPDATE The Sick Get Sicker as Legal Drug Pushing Puts Profits Before the Health of Patients By Helke Ferrie Vitality May 2009  “No doubt, one day our children’s children will learn in school that in the early part of the 21st century tens of thousands of people died every year after taking unnecessary drugs… They will learn that there were no effective laws to protect people from risky drugs … When will we stop killing the innocent with blockbuster drugs?” — Terence H.
