Regulators Ignore Health Impact as EMF Radiation Invades Canada by Helke Ferrie Vitality, April 2011 “The good news is that many of these EMF diseases may be preventable by simple environmental manipulation, if society chooses to pay attention.  Unless public outrage intervenes, I am afraid that our ‘diseases of civilization’ will get worse.  Good science is not enough to force sensible public policy.

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.

ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE TAKES ON CANCER AND WINS The Audacity of Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez By Helke Ferrie Vitality November 2010 “If you are an honest scientist, it doesn’t matter if it’s moondust – if it’s working, you have got to follow through… I also believe that truth always comes to the top… I have done what I have done because of the truth of it, and the truth has proven to be only truer as I’ve gotten further into … this quest, and the results have been my greatest joy.

May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month: Lyme Disease Resource Book for Canadians By Helke Ferrie, Vitality Magazine May 2010 It is preposterous, but Canada fell through that infamous rabbit hole.  Thousands of Canadians, whose numbers are growing annually, are now at the mercy of the policies of our medical Wonderland, where things have become “curiouser and curiouser”, as Alice would say.
