Cleaning out the Augean Stables – Part II

10th December 2022

[The Federal Aviation Authority (FAA), the Food and Drugs Administration, compare and contrast].

A while back I began to write a blog called. ‘We need a couple of plane crashes.’ Which may sound a little harsh. But the point I was hoping to make is that plane crashes make front page news around the world. They are highly visible, and terribly frightening. They certainly can’t be hidden away from the public.

One plane crash may not be seen as such a big deal, after all these things can happen. Two plane crashes, for the same reason, in the same make and model of plane. Now you’re talking. Planes will be grounded around the world. A massive investigation will take place. Headlines generated.

Outrage shall be expressed by politicians. The phrases: ‘heart-rending’, ‘my thoughts and prayers are with the families’ ‘we will strain every sinew’ ‘horrified’ will be greatly overused. Thesauruses shalt be scanned, searching out synonyms for terrible: shocking, horrifying, dreadful, appalling etc.

Yes, I am talking here about the Boeing Max 737 crash. With depressing inevitability, all the usual issues were uncovered. For example, the silencing of whistle-blowers prior to the crash. I enjoyed some of the internal memos that were discovered:

‘The messages contained harshly critical comments about the development of the 737 MAX, including one that said the plane was “designed by clowns who in turn are supervised by monkeys.” 1

Oh yes, people in the company knew. They always do. Then silenced they are, yes.

In this case, though, we had an added bonus. The chief executive of Boeing tried to blame the pilots – ‘nothing to do with our super-safe planes’. This was the play book of the desperate. A man scattering blame in all directions – but his. A man who, it should be added, walked off with a $62.2m bonus… As compensation.

Oh well, at least he received no severance pay to go with it. So, he might just about be able to get by on his rather meagre compensation. Compensation! For what? Being an utterly heartless bastard. 1

As it turned out, the cause of the crashes was a new piece of technology designed to keep the plane from pitching up, or down, can’t remember which. It was required because Boeing were putting great big new engines on airframes that were not designed to take them. The airframe was launched in the 1960s, the new engines appeared fifty years later. It was a way to upgrade the 737 on the cheap.

‘We can make them fit. We can, we can.’ What, they can make them fit sixty years later. A period of time longer than it took to get from the Wright brothers original flight to the Boeing 737 itself. Think upon that.

Of course, they didn’t bother telling pilots that this ‘fudge-it’ system existed – or at least they didn’t tell most of them. So, when the plane suddenly decided to pitch up, or down, controlled by the new system, the pilots had no idea what the hell was going on.

The subsequent battle between computer, and pilot, ended up driving the planes into the ground. All of this was entirely, and absolutely, the fault of Boeing. Who, it appears, were well aware of exactly what had happened after the first crash. Yet they still tried to pin the blame on the pilots, and fought to keep the planes in the air.

Yes, this stuff really does restore your faith in humanity, does it not? Compensation of $62.2 million. I was thinking more along the lines of a very long jail sentence. Hey ho.

Then, attention moved to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) itself. The very agency whose job it is to ensure that planes are as safe as safe can be. Surely these guys should have picked up on this problem? Here are a couple of short sections from their mission statement:

‘Safety is our passion.

‘Integrity is our touchstone. We perform our duties honestly, with moral soundness, and with the highest level of ethics.’

I love mission statements like this. Yes, you always need a bit of ‘passion’. Tick! How about a splash of ‘moral soundness’ Tick! A soupcon of ‘the highest levels of ethics’. Tick!

Mission statements like this are to be savoured like a fine wine. They are the purest form of hypocrisy that mankind has ever aspired. A smorgasbord of fine sounding words, distilled to perfection. Heady, utterly meaningless. Just words, nothing more. Reading them fills me with almost painfully sharp snap of pleasure.

I think you will find this to be the utterly perfect vacuous mission statement, sir.’

            ‘Ah yes, bring me another glass. This time can we just add…. In the air, you’re in our care.’

            ‘Genuis, if I may say so.  A Boeing vintage, sir.

Of course, amongst all this passion, honesty, morality and, indeed ethics, Boeing’s penny-pinching actions sailed straight through the FAA. In truth, they didn’t sail straight through the FAA. Because, at the time, the FAA was perfectly content for Boeing to do many of their own safety checks.

‘The Federal Aviation Administration has for years allowed many aerospace companies to use their own workers in place of FAA inspectors, a system that is coming under scrutiny after two Boeing 737 Max jetliners crashed, killing the crews and passengers.

A total of 79 companies are allowed under federal policies to let engineers or other workers considered qualified report on safety to the FAA on systems deemed not to be the most critical rather than leaving all inspections to the government agency.

To critics, it’s a regulatory blind spot.

“The FAA decided to do safety on the cheap — which is neither safe nor cheap, and put the fox in charge of the henhouse,” said Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., in a statement. He’s vowed to introduce legislation “so that the FAA is put back in charge of safety.” 2

‘Fox in charge of the henhouse’. Yup.

Whether or not the fox ever gets booted out of the henhouse is another question. I wouldn’t hold my breath on that one. However, what these two plane crashes certainly managed to achieve was to sharpen the world’s attention on the FAA. For a short moment, at least, the world woke from its slumbers, professed moral outrage then… then what?

Then the CEO of Boeing got a pay-off of $62.2 million, in compensation.

“346 people died. And yet, Dennis Muilenburg pressured regulators and put profits ahead of the safety of passengers, pilots, and flight attendants. He’ll walk away with an additional $62.2 million. This is corruption, plain and simple,” U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren said on Twitter.

U.S. Representative Peter DeFazio, who chairs the House Transportation Committee, said minutes of a June 2013 meeting showed that Boeing sought to avoid expensive training and simulator requirements by misleading regulators about an anti-stall system called MCAS that was later tied to the two crashes that killed 346 people.’ 2

Yes, dear reader, you are right. If, that is, you just noticed that this blog has nothing much to do with the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA). However, when the FDA can’t be bothered to do their job with the required ‘passion’, ‘moral integrity’ ethics and a bit more passion stuck on top for good luck, three hundred and fifty dead would represent the smallest drop in a vast ocean.

If the FDA invites the fox into the henhouse, it may well be thousands, may hundreds of thousands, who die. But, and here is the kicker. It can be very difficult for anyone to know that it is it is taking place.

This is because there will be one death at a time, spread across the globe. You will not have an enormous impact crater. There will be no scattered wreckage, no children’s toy poignantly lying next to a manged plane seat for the media to focus their cameras on. Just one death at a time. At home, in a hospital. Final breath, gone.

Drip, drip, drip.

Dead, dead, dead.

Who dares disturb my slumbers?

This, from Harvard University

‘Few know that systematic reviews of hospital charts found that even properly prescribed drugs (aside from misprescribing, overdosing, or self-prescribing) cause about 1.9 million hospitalizations a year. Another 840,000 hospitalized patients are given drugs that cause serious adverse reactions for a total of 2.74 million serious adverse drug reactions.

About 128,000 people die from drugs prescribed to them. This makes prescription drugs a major health risk, ranking 4th with stroke as a leading cause of death. The European Commission estimates that adverse reactions from prescription drugs cause 200,000 deaths; so together, about 328,000 patients in the U.S. and Europe die from prescription drugs each year. The FDA does not acknowledge these facts and instead gathers a small fraction of the cases.’ 3

This is approximately one thousand times as many deaths as the Boeing Max 737 crashes, and it happens each and every year. To be pedantic this is a mere 947.98 times as many deaths. In addition, as the Harvard article also states:

‘Few people know that new prescription drugs have a one in five chance of causing serious reactions after they have been approved.’

As for the FDA. Well… ‘It does not acknowledge these facts.’

What on earth does this statement mean? The FDA can’t be bothered to check. Or they don’t believe in such grubby things as facts? Or is it just too much of a big scary problem to even contemplate? There is a bit of me that doesn’t blame them. A little tiny bit. ‘Just look at the size of those Augean stables. I ain’t cleaning that baby. No way.’

However, a much bigger bit thinks that this is really their job. Namely, to find out exactly how it is that ‘correctly’ prescribed medications are killing more than three hundred thousand people (US and Europe alone) per year.

You would think they might consider it a good idea to try and reduce this number, just a smidge? Nope, far easier to ‘not acknowledge these facts’. You certainly don’t have to do anything about a problem if you refuse to accept that there is a problem. Sorted. What shall the motto of the FDA be, I wonder.

‘Safety is our passion.

‘Integrity is our touchstone. We perform our duties honestly, with moral soundness, and with the highest level of ethics.’


So, next, I think we should have a look at what is going on in the FDA – as this is pretty much what is going on at every other drug evaluation agency in the world, to a greater of lesser extent. Also, where the FDA approves, others follow. They are very much the leaders of the pack

I though I should finish with something that you may wish to savour, like a fine wine. I include a couple of key sections of the Boeing mission statement.


Lead on safety, quality, integrity and sustainability

In everything we do and in all aspects of our business, we will make safety our top priority, strive for first-time quality, hold ourselves to the highest ethical standards, and continue to support a sustainable future.

Foster a Just Culture grounded in humility, inclusion and transparency

Rooted in transparency, fairness and learning, a Just Culture creates an environment where everyone feels free to report errors and are treated fairly for making mistakes while being held accountable for negligence or malicious behaviour. The intent is to help all of us learn from mistakes to improve as individuals and as a company.4

By golly what a company this must be… Fine, fine words indeed.

    Very good. The Boing (Boeing) typo error was most apt. It looks much like that dishonest bloke from Pfizer, Borlah, or however you spell his name. He’s just as greedy which ever way it’s spell;ed. Having the authority of such studies as SIX!!!! mice to hoodwink (Ha! Teey are in it up to their bank balances) members of the MHRA, a paid for subsidiary of big pharma, to say “Yeah, jab who you like, whenever you like, we are enablers not regulators.” A crok of 5hit if ever there was one..

    We could go on,and on, and on, and……………..

      It’s Bourla and it was 8 mice used to trial the new bivalent booster jabs but hey! the MSM don’t really want to know. Nor it seems do many of the public, happily continuing to trust the entire medical profession without question.

      1. Tim Fallon

        A rather large study following millions of patients in the NHS, later published in the Annals of Internal Medicine found the flu vaccine offers zero benefit for hospitalisation and death for the over 65s.
        Isn’t if odd how real world studies conducted by people not working directly for pharma so often find that pharma products provide zero actual benefit.
        Isn’t it equally strange that those in power in the regulatory agencies never seem to feel like removing these useless and expensive products from the market?

          I wrote about this and related research at and People have far too much faith in vaccines. They are like priestly sacraments, and are a cleansing ritual by which people can feel safe and reject those who are not also vaccinated.

          Few vaccines would be needed if everyone had 50 ng/mL 125 nmol/L 25-hydroxyvitamin D, which is what their immune system needs to work properly. Without proper supplements – such as (70 kg bodyweight) 0.125 mg 5000 IU vitamin D3 a day – most people only have 5 to 25 ng/mL, so their innate and adaptive responses to cancer, bacteria, fungi and viruses are crippled and they are much more likely to suffer from wildly dysregulated, self-destructive, indiscriminate cell destroying, inflammatory responses. Please see the research articles cited at: .

        2. Ben the Layabout

          In fairness, Flu vaccine is not completely useless, but nearly so. You need paid access to read it, but from my notes I have: for older adults absolute risk reduction (to catch flu) from about 6% to 2.4%. For younger adults, from 2.3 to 0.9%. Adverse events not considered. Source: Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews 2018.

          Using Cochrane and other resources, I’ve come to similar conclusions about primary prevention using statins, hypertension medications and aspirin, and that’s why I’ve dropped all three of those. I’ve not confirmed this, but I’m pretty sure in many countries (perhaps including USA), doctors are required to begin such “preventative” treatments simply because a patient “presents” with LDL or blood pressure above whatever the arbitrary limit has been currently deemed to be by a thoroughly corrupt board (NCEP, NICE or its equivalent). Question for classroom discussion: What does it say about the ethics, or for that matter, the competence of a medical system when at least some mandated treatments have been shown to be at best very limited, and most likely zero benefit or even a net harm to the marginal patient?


            First time I refused flu shot and I come down with the lurgy. Still, probably just bad luck.
            Any advice on fighting it?

            My go to is always Andrographis, perhaps with some liposomal vit C, but I don’t often get lurgies. Never had a flu injection as, in the days when they used to test children before injecting them, I was always allergic and assumed I always would be.

          6. Kratoklastes

            Using Cochrane and other resources, I’ve come to similar conclusions about primary prevention using statins, hypertension medications and aspirin [snip]

            We’re on the same page, but I am unaware of any Cochrane study that found limited utility when it comes to hypertension meds. I know the ones for aspirin and statins, but I would be really grateful if you could point me at such a study for anti-hypertensives (be it Cochrane or anywhere else).

            I’ve got plenty of studies showing that systolic BP is irrelevant for people under 50, and that high SBP doesn’t change mortality risk for SBP’s up to 180… but it would be good to round that out by being able to show that the meds don’t work anyway.

            I’m a “hypertension denier”, you see. In my view, hypertension is sometimesa symptom of a treatable condition, but often it just ‘is’ (the so-called “essential” hypertension) – and that if there’s no organic condition to be found we blokes should just be left alone.

            My ‘PB for BP’ is 233/138 – I routinely get a systolic BP over 200, with no evidence of ill-effect (no dizziness, headache, or whatever). But my normal ‘running around’ systolic is more like 150-170mmHg.

            Kidneys are fine (eGFR > 95; ultrasound clear); carotids are clean as a whistle; CAC is a nice round zero; no evidence of LVH; both LVEF and RVEF are above 65%.

            HbA1c is 5.0 flat (I’m boasting now, so I may as well get it all out there: VO2Max is 51; BMI is 24; bodyfat is 13%… I’m quite fit for a bloke my age[1] and I like meauring things). And 25-hydroxy VitD is over 100.

            So all my subsystems – liver, heart, kidneys, blood glucose, adiposity etc – seem to be running like a well-oiled machine[1 again]… and yet I’m still told that persistent high BP will cause some potentially-lethal issue (e.g., kidney damage or a brain aneurysm) at some unspecified point in the future – and until very recently we were all told we “needed” a statin, even if our lipid panel was normal (as mine always is).

            [1] With one caveat: advanced metastatic prostate cancer – Stage IVb.

            I’ve gotta say: once I got the pain under control (with opioids), prostate cancer has been a bit of a ‘Nerf’ disease. I finished my 6th and last round of chemo just before Christmas – as always I walked 4.5km to the hospital, had the chemo (docetaxel), and walked 4.5km home.

          7. Mr Chris

            I’m 83 and my VO2 max is 37, so admire admire. Zabout all these tests and studies, I am pleased to say I don’t do them. My doctor and I go to the same fitness class. When I said was it worth doing stress test, I told him what I could do in the class as regards abdominal exercises and which hill I can ride up without stopping. So that’s how I see things. One of the problems of being old is that people of your age only want to talk about illnesses and how bad the young are, always on their phones etc etc et boring cetera.

  2. norma bailie

    Dr Malcolm , you are so right and all this is so wrong. I will share your work as always. Also will not be taking vaccines or prescription drugs unless I get sepsis.

  3. John

    Ah, yes. Lobby government and make a few donations to “good causes” – perhaps even set up a fake grassroots movement or charity and then you an police yourselves as your integrity has obviously been demonstrated. Bah, humbug!

  4. Mr Chris

    This is known as light touch regulation, its main aim is to lower the cost of performing essential public services so as to reduce head count and ultimately taxation . This system is thought to benefit the better off, but since they travel more by air, suffer more from lifestyle diseases and have more investments than the less well off, in the end it harms some of those that it was designed to benefit.
    Funny ain’t it

  5. Steve

    Although, maybe, not as bad as the US, yet, It is the case that similar happens in a lot, not all, of British companies.
    The bottom line with all these capitalist driven companies is profit, nothing else, not health and Safety, not quality, not service delivery. The bigger the company the worse it is, and the public service and manufacturing sectors are the most prone to cutting corners to increase profits.
    Covid has been a perfect examplar of NHS and Big Pharma corporate greed, negligence and obscene executive ‘compensations’.

  6. Jerome savage

    The mission statement- think it was about 22 yrs since our own organisation marshalled the salaried populace to design a fitting clarion call to the troops – many bemused- who just wanted to get on with their job & get on with those around them. This was distraction and corporate sloganeering from whiz kids who probably never worked a day in their lives but knee how to “fix” something that wasn’t broken. Now methinks, me wonders, wax this start of the rot, top down socialist style dogmatic new god like drive towards the great leap forward- always destined to be ignored but providing an umbrella akin to the emperors new clothes. Pedantic semantics with a touch of – mission stated – mission completed.
    Thanks dr K. for putting together this sturdy piece, making for a logical easy flow good read.

  7. andy

    You, like many of us readers of your fine blogs, have come a long way from questioning if a ‘positive test’ is really worth all that has happened in the world

  8. Gary Ogden

    Thank you, Dr. Kendrick. Much of the explanation for the rot in official Medicine can be found in this interview of a U.S. doctor practicing in New Zealand. A shadowy, secretive private company in the U.S. calling itself the Federation of State Medical Boards was established in 1913 (this year also saw in the U.S. the beginning of the income tax and the Federal Reserve). They have wormed their way into control of all state medical licensing boards and of public policy, and operate in other countries, including New Zealand. This is horrifying:

    1. Tim Fallon

      The Federal Reserve – not Federal and has no reserves, you can’t criticise those that run it because they are the most oppressed, weak and vulnerable minority the world has ever known.

      1. An Italian Australian at the Tropics

        A minority curiously overrepresented in the vaccine business and in the banking system.

        But I’m sure it’s coincidental.

        1. ARB

          As well as the media and Hollywood where most people learn their (false) history.
          It s good to see more people waking up to this fact,

      1. Gary Ogden

        Sasha: And scary as hell. They are in charge, whether we realize it or not. 1913 was also the beginning of Rockefeller medicine, and the suppression of all other modalities. Ole’ John D. lived to 98 (1839-1937), and left death and destruction in his wake. His father was an honest-to-goodness snake-oil salesman, run out of about every town in New England.

        1. Sasha

          Even though it gives me pause to know that the same website has an interview with a guy named Mark Sleboda who is sitting with a huge letter Z on the lapel of his jacket running his mouth about Ukraine war and how the West is about to run out of arms…

          1. Sasha

            No, Z is the symbol of Russia’s “special military operation”, also known as the war in Ukraine. Sort of like swastika was for the Third Reich, in my opinion. Actually, not in my opinion but the opinion of some who understand how propaganda works.

          2. Sasha

            I think I came up with a new bias: Big Brother bias. Before we had lead-time bias or healthy user bias, for example. And now I also see Big Brother bias. Once you get injured by Big Brother: Big Pharma, Big Food or whatever, you begin to think that everything Big Brother tells you is a lie. But is it possible that sometimes what Big Brother says is actually correct? And how do you determine what is what?

          3. Sasha

            Thanks. I heard her other talk, she’s very convincing. If even half of what she says is true, we are in for quite a ride…

          4. Gary Ogden

            Sasha: Yes, we’re in for quite a ride. The WHO is moving to strip sovereignty from all nations. Trump was right to exit WHO.

          5. David Bailey


            I’m a little confused as to whether the Rumble interview was with you Sasha, but whatever, it was a fabulous interview and fairly upbeat in that it predicts that the attempt to take over biotech will fail in the end.

          6. Sasha

            No, not with me, I don’t have a fraction of her knowledge in biotech.

            Her name is Sasha Latypova.

            “Sasha” is a common Russian nickname for Alexander or Alexandra.

          7. Gary Ogden

            David: The interview was with Sasha Latypova, not our Sasha. In her case, (SL) I think it is like a nickname (correct me if I’m wrong).

    AHNotepad beat me to it!

    “June Raine who has presided over the increasing dysfunction at the MHRA, much as Sir Simon Stevens did for the NHS, said this during her 5th March 2022, Somerville College talk about the transformation of the MHRA From a Watchdog to an Enabler during Covid. It sounds like a subliminal confessional.”

    From the latest blog post by “The Covid Physician” (a mystery NHS GP! Good for him…or her)

    (Btw, typo-alert – I think it should be “…a one in five chance…” rather than “change” here? ‘Few people know that new prescription drugs have a one in five change of causing serious reactions after they have been approved.’)

    1. cavenewt

      Another typo is calling it the Federal Aviation Authority. It should be Federal Aviation Administration.

      Also ‘Ah yes, bring me another glass. This time can we just add…. In the air, you’re in out care.’ Of course that should be ‘our care’.

        1. cavenewt

          A lot of blog authors appreciate having typos pointed out so they can fix them in the original. I see quite a few typos that actually reverse the intended meaning of a sentence.

          That said, if you come to visit I’ll be sure to hide the axe.

  10. Dave

    Mission statements and advertising…… If you look at what they say and assume the exact opposite, you are far more likely to find the true answer. Another way of expressing this is “actions speak louder than words”. When an oil company decides it wants to use green text on its logo and trumpet itself as the “green oil company” you know what is likely to come next, and so it did, repeatedly. Captured regulators………. And psychopathic commercial organisations. In some supercharged cases the regulator and commercial organisation subsume into one: the NIH for example where many staff in the NIH hold patents on drugs and genetic therapies. In the UK we are no better. Take a look at the directors of the MHRA, and where the MHRA get its money (86% from Pharma apparently) ……. Little wonder that you get results as we do

  11. Damien Sanderson

    The head of the UK MHRA openly boasted they were changing the emphasis of roles towards being an enabling body . . . the enabling entailed giving a smooth ride to the introduction of an experimental medication to the British public. The basis for authorisation was a set of incomplete results from inadequate, rushed clinical studies. But they, like the government were proudly patting themselves on the back because they had got this experimental drug expeditiously into the public arms, beating most other countries (and to this day the government continue this boast).
    The MHRA has never given a detailed risk/benefit assessment of the CV19 jab and appears to have shown little enthusiasm for following up on their safety. What are they trying to hide and *why* are they trying to hide it.
    Perhaps the fact that the majority of their finance comes from Big Pharma . . . He who pays the piper calls the tune.

    1. Ben the Layabout

      In my world, experimental drugs would be very easily available. But a key difference would be that they could only be administered with the fully informed voluntary consent of the patient and never, ever under any circumstances, mandated. How they would be paid and liability issues? Those are sidelines.

  12. Tim Fallon

    Dr K
    Have you seen this interview with aluminium expert Dr Chritopher Exley?
    He found that the aluminium salts present in vaccines (about 80% of them) are the likely cause of autism and alzheimers, he discovered how they cross the blood brain barrier.
    As you would expect a man discovering this and thereby preventing untold future suffering has been given a Nobel Prize – only kidding, of course his funding was cut, his team disbanded and he was fired from his University.


    1. johnsymes

      This is fraudulent science and riddled with conflicts of interest. Aluminium has been proposed as a cause of Alzheimer disease for many years, but no causal link ever been proven. Chris Exley, (previously a chemist at Keele) is one of the main advocates as aluminium as a cause of Alzheimer and autism, but has taken finance from anti-vaccination groups, and from manufacturers of company that sells silicon-rich mineral water, which he claims to reduce toxic aluminium from the body and brains.

      The papers linking autism and aluminium appears in a tiny online publication of which Exley is on the editorial board. (Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology Several such papers have had to be retraced. There are no controls.

      It is good to be sceptic, but fraudulent science occurs at all ends of the spectrum. Bitchute should be enough of a warning to avoid anything published here. unless you along with all the other climate change denial, pro gun lobbies, anti-semitic conspiracies etc etc

      1. Eggs ‘n beer

        I have read Exley’s and Mold’s papers. Instead of attacking Exley, which just puts you up there with all the liars and murderers pushing vaccines, lockdowns, masks, banning treatments etc. why not actually discuss the results of their experiments? Or is this too much to ask, as it’s just so much easier to throw around allegations rather than apply a bit of brain power?

        1. johnsymes

          I did read the paper in question. I already mentioned 2 problems: conflict of interest with funding source (this is not just a problem of funding by drug companies), and no controls. More of a problem is that the results defy any sensible statistical interpretation. Frozen brain samples from 5 individuals with a diagnosis of ASD were obtained and 4 brain slices from different areas of brain were sampled from each individual.
          The results are reported and mean and standard deviation. The standard deviations of the samples are usually much higher than the means. The authors acknowledge this means the variability between individuals and within the different areas of the each individual is very high and little of any use can be concluded. Given the lack of data for comparison with non-ASD brains, the whole thing is nonsense. It is like telling someone the mean weight of a mouse and elephant and speculating on what type of creature it is.

        So we shouldn’t be able to debate global warming? Or notice how criminals don’t really care about gun laws and somehow always find a way to source them? Or that members of the small tribe are overrepresented in certain contests?

        It seems that, following your reasoning, we shouldn’t even debate vaccines or official medical advice.

        1. Harry de Boer

          Are you aware of the fact that governments and private institutions are paying millions to armies of trolls in an attempt to influence and sway public opinion?

      3. Steve

        It’s not paranoia but a safe assumption that anyone who questions the official narrative is being monitored and potentially having nudges applied to their newsfeeds.
        Just saying.

      4. Harry de Boer

        ‘climate change denial’? Who is denying that the climate changes? It changes all the time, has done so for many millions of years.

        And bitchute is one of the few places people can go when their truthful statements are kicked off of youtube.

        To rid yourself of CO2-anxiety, read about Henry’s Law, realise that the oceans contain 50-60 times as much CO2 as the atmosphere, but that it takes a few hundred years for the CO2 to diffuse from top to bottom, or vice versa, and deduce that as a result atmospheric CO2 concentration is driven practically solely by seawater temperature and not the other way around.

        Also find that the recent (100 years or so) increase in atmospheric CO2 concentration could well be a result of the medieval warmth period, the CO2 of which released by the deeper oceans now reach the surface and appear in the atmosphere. (Cutting lots of things short here.)

        Exley doesn’t say Aluminium causes Alzheimer’s disease. He has analysed about 12 brains and found that all of the brains that came from people suffering from Alzheimer’s contained detectable amounts of Alu, and that no brain without aluminium was from an Alzheimer’s patient. He said it like this:
        “No Alzheimer’s without aluminium.”

        It’s a bit subtle, but comes down to that he did not say “Aluminium causes Alzheimer’s”, but that aluminium seems necessary in order to get Alzheimer’s disease.

      6. Harry de Boer

        If you claim Exley’s work is fraudulent and riddled with conflicts of interest, then you are also dismissing the majority of health and pharmaceutical research as fraudulent and self serving. It seems a bit difficult to live in a world like that.

    2. Mark Waters

      his book Mr Aluminium is an essential read, and so helpful in his advice to combat the effects of Aluminium poisoning.

      1. johnsymes

        I did not say anything about not questioning orthodoxy, be it in vaccines, gun laws, climate change etc., but there is no point in opening your minds so far that you brains fall out. Why not take up voodoo or astrology if you do not question either side. There is no monopoly on bad science anywhere.

        1. AhNotepad

          Yet when someone does question orthodoxy, you weigh ion with your accusations of conflict of interests, amongst others.

        2. Eggs ‘n beer

          Why not start by taking your own advice? And question Exley and Mold’s results rather than attacking them, the publication, the funding; anything, rather than do some work? You haven’t even read the papers. If you had, you would know the reasons why there were no controls initially. There couldn’t be, as this was pure research, with no expected outcome, so you couldn’t have a ‘control’ as you couldn’t know what needed ‘controlling’. Having determined what was needed then more research was done on a control group, which establishes a very strong correlation between aluminium in brains and a range of neurological diseases.

          1. Dr. Malcolm Kendrick Post author

            I am a simple thinker. Does aluminium have any function in the brain. Should it be there. Is it potentially toxic. Let us start from there. If the answers are no, no and yes we have a potential problem on our hands.

          2. Eggs ‘n beer

            But, you are thinking.

            What puzzles me is that not only does it not have any function in the brain, it has no natural function in the body at all. I say ‘natural function’ as people actually drink the stuff as an antacid (Aludrox). Plus its use as an adjuvant. And yet it is established as a neurotoxin. Nor do plants have any use for it. But it is the third largest element in the earth’s crust, you’d think that if there could possibly have been any use for it to life on earth it would have been utilised. But no, the toxicity from its 3+ valency must be too much for life to overcome to find a benefit.

    When I, my daughter and 12 year old grandson see pharmaceutical ads on TV and hear the lists of side-effects, we laugh that that company would dare to presume that we’d be crazy enough to ever consume that product, or to ever trust them ever again. These past few years has put a lock on the little trust I might have had remaining in our medical professions. I’m even nervous going to my dentist these days.

    1. Goeff

      “…or to ever trust them ever again.”

      This was published 62+ years ago.

      “…There were no well-controlled studies. There were no reports by really prominent investigators. Most of the names of the investigators were completely unknown to In most cases the patients were given the drugs without an accurate diagnosis having been established, or with a clinical diagnosis of a condition for which antibiotic therapy is not indicated. There was even one death (uncommented upon) in a virus disease which just is not fatal. So I was led to wonder whether or not the use of two completely unnecessary antibiotics might not have led to a superinfection with fatal results.”

      ‘“346 people died. And yet, Dennis Muilenburg pressured regulators and put profits ahead of the safety of passengers, pilots, and flight attendants. He’ll walk away with an additional $62.2 million. This is corruption, plain and simple,” U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren said on Twitter’.

      It’s the American Way, and Senator Warren knows that perfectly well. At this specific moment, she probably sees an opportunity for a small tactical victory by pointing out this particular instance of gross corruption – but only after others did the spadework and the news became public knowledge.

      That is when your savvy politician jumps on a bandwagon. She is probably safe, as Muilenburg may not be dishing out too much bribery (er, pardon me, political support) to any senators for a while.

    Even airplane catastrophes nowadays are not anymore what they used to be. If you followed the cases of the two Malaysian airplanes that had catastrophical endings in recent years you’d know what I’m talking about: post-truth (one-sided propaganda) has taken over, the official version of USA/NATO rules almost uncontested. Sure we can still protest and even post evidence around… but to no avail: the plane that the Ukrainian Air Force shot down was officially “downed by Russia”, the other Malaysian airplane that went mysteriously missing… into Diego Garcia (with Maldivan witnesses having seen it) is officially “lost in the Ocean”. And don’t get me started with the four US airplanes of September 2001, which arguably marks the beginning of this rule of lies, not at all different from Franco blaming “the reds” for the destruction of Gernika… for some 40 years… against all evidence. If you say otherwise, no matter the evidence you have, you are a “conspiranoic”, pretty much a madman or mad woman… but without even the right to proper mental healthcare.

    The Boeing case was only looked upon because it was one of those cases in which Reality bites… and risks the lives of upper class people who may travel in those planes. It’s not even paradigmatic anymore considering all the other cases of air catastrophes which we’ve been lied about. I almost miss the days when an air catastrophe, an airplane kidnapping even, was for real, when the PLO was actually fighting and not just managing the Bantustan for the enemy. Granted that even in those days some things were murky, especially in Italy in the “years of lead” (also who killed Petra Kelly when she was researching Assange-style?, I’m sure it was Gladio-NATO), but most of the time things were relatively straightforward and even the press was relatively neutral and objective in most cases.

    Today? Today we live in an ocean of lies and we are drowning in it.

    1. ARB

      I agree about MH17 and it is easy enough to see the evidence for yourself but please point me to any evidence to support your theory on MH370

      1. mike

        Why do you need evidence? It wa Biden, NATO, The NHS wot dun it. It was anybody who the orange narcissist said dun it who actually dun it.

        1. Paul Fruitbat

          Hardly constructive. And even a stopped clock is right once a day. Mr Trump is a disagreeable person in many ways, but to my mind he scores over most politicians by being relatively honest. (Which is why he’s so disliked: people prefer those who, like Blair and Obama, profess to be nice while secretly doing horrible things. “Whited sepulchres”, Biblical language).

          1. mike

            Trump is “relatively honest” Ha ha ho ho. You don’t get be a multi millionaire by being honest. Trump makes me cringe whenever i hear him, that’s how honest he sounds to me. Why can’t you see this ? A vile fascist is preferable to your political enemy ? It seems so.

          2. Paul Fruitbat

            Trump is basically an American businessman like any other. He is systematically dishonest in business dealings, naturally. Any other approach would lead to rapid bankruptcy, when all the others are dishonest.

            But in politics he seems to me to say mostly exactly what he thinks. Which is a refreshing change from those (including most Democrats) who say one thing and do another.

            Another strong recommendation is that he became President against the concerted resistance of both parties. The Republicans didn’t (and don’t) like him any more than the Democrats. Anyone who tells the truth, even some of the time, is poison to them. The system breaks down in the presence of truth.

            As for “fascist”, don’t be silly. That’s just a general-purpose boo-word. As George Orwell pointed out during WW2, it had even then long ceased to have much meaning.

        2. Jerome savage

          Fascist ? How, where, what – opportunist, misogynist but fascist? Hardly. His proposal to stop the US war tide & bring troops home was heartening. Not the place for this debate so we won’t mention his predecessors’ war antics.

      2. Maju

        There were several indications and I remember gathering them in an old blog post here (hopefully the link will make it through moderation because I’d hate to type-explain all that again som many years later):

        But basically: the plane was kidnapped by the pilot, who had trained at home to travel along south India, the plane was watched by Maldivan fishermen at low altitude heading south, one of the victims managed apparently to hide a phone and message to his girlfriend in California reporting some sort of compound where they were being held captive.

        At first I also thought that the plane was lost to the Indian Ocean somehow but the other evidence didn’t match and the alleged location west of Australia was utterly imprecise.

        Also, a report I read (probably at Global Research or Voltaire Net) said that two US-Chinese computer engineers with shared rights to some patent were in the airplane, their death would have given full rights to the company, owned by one of the big Rs, can’t recall if Rockefeller or Rotschild.

    2. Martin Back

      I watch “Air Crash Investigation” on TV pretty regularly, and I think you are being too conspiracy-minded.

      Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 is admittedly still a mystery. The program concluded it was a murder-suicide. It can’t have landed at Diego Garcia because wreckage has washed up, consistent with a crash into the Indian Ocean. But there are many theories, see

      Malaysia Airlines flight 17 was shot down by a missile, not a fighter plane. The holes in the fuselage match the butterfly-shaped shrapnel in the warhead and are random, unlike round holes in lines which would be expected from cannon fire from a fighter. The dispute is more the chain of command that led to firing the missile.

      The plane that hit the Pentagon was tracked by radar, the passengers used their phones to say what was happening on board, and the crash was witnessed by nearby motorists and caught on video. All consistent with a terrorist attack.

      In the case of the Boeing 737 Max, the true story did come out. It is mainly Boeing’s fault that pilots were not trained to deal with a defect in the MCAS system, with maybe some blame to the airlines for swallowing Boeing’s story that training wasn’t needed, and maybe the crash pilots could have done better. Other pilots had dealt with the problem by switching the MCAS off.

      Which is not to deny that there are attempts at cover-ups and evasions of responsibility. National pride comes into it too. It’s not always clear where the fault lies — pilot training and behavior under stress, aircraft design and avionics, airlines trying to save money and skimping maintenance, confusion in air traffic control, or just plain carelessness and inattention on the part of someone.

      It is dogged investigation laying bare the most likely chain of events, followed by assignment of responsibility and regulations to prevent a recurrence that have made airline flights so safe today.

      1. Harry de Boer

        Air crash investigation has an editor too, you know.
        But it’s true: it’s very convenient to be a conspiracy denier.
        Saves one a lot of cognitive dissonance.

        1. Sasha

          This is a question for anyone thinking that MH17 was shot down by a Ukrainian missile and later blamed on pro-Russian separatists:

          Before the start of current hostilities in 2022, there were no Russian military planes in the Ukrainian airspace. The war was a hybrid war in Donetsk and Luhansk and it was conducted on the ground. If there were no Russian military planes in the Ukrainian airspace prior to 2022, why would Ukrainians shoot at anything in the sky?

          What’s more likely, is that a Buk missile was smuggled into one of those regions and it was used to shoot down a plane that was mistakenly believed to be a Ukrainian military plane. Apparently, shortly after there was a self-congratulatory tweet by one of the people (maybe it was Strelkov but I don’t remember). That tweet was later deleted when it was realized that a civilian plane was hit.

          1. Paul Fruitbat

            Sasha, since you have chosen to bring up the topic, I would like to mention the book “The Lie That Shot Down MH17” (available from Amazon). Also John Helmer’s blog, “Dances with Bears”, in which he has exhaustively covered the subject. The end of the string is here:

            In my humble opinion, Mr Helmer’s work on MH17 is equivalent to Dr Kendrick’s on heart disease. Both authors have had to cut through thick sticky strands of deliberate deception in their efforts to uncover the truth.

            Having reluctantly posted to give some balance to Sasha’s extremely partisan opinions, I shall not say anything further about MH17 or Russia. This is not the place.

          2. Maju

            It was shot down by gunfire from two (or one of two) Ukrainian fighters sighted by the locals following the victim airplane. Whoever has seen the photos of the fallen remains would have seen the bullet holes: the cabin was suddenly depressurized killing pilot and copilot on the spot, the rest is gravity. There was no missile whatsoever.

      2. Maju

        Politically-loaded themes in Wikipedia are controlled by intelligence services, at first even openly, not sure now. That’s why I quit Wikipedia in 2007: on a row about one HSD agent (also Wikipedia mod) unduly and abusively controlling the 9-11 article in order to hide all trail of “conspiracy theories” (not to be even linked in the “see also” category).

        Wikpedia is still fine for science articles, it’s also somewhat loaded for history and geography ones (much politics goes there too) but it’s definitely useless for current affairs unless it’s a very preliminary review. Since the Internet opened the gates of communication in ways unknown since the printing press, there’s been a huge backlash from governments and companies (but very especially governments) to retake vertical control over communication and Wikipedia was one of the first casualties.

        1. cavenewt

          I don’t know if medicine counts as science in this context, but I quit attempting to edit in disgust about 10 years ago. The arrogant attitude of the other editors treating it like their own little fiefdom…

          And of course, with Covid, it’s easy to see the bias. They seem to take delight in smearing the pages of individual scientists who have dared to question the dominant paradigm.

  15. JohnAppleton

    An interesting article indeed doctor,

    As an aviator myself, I am able to speak about regulators like the FAA from first hand experience and have often used words like these “Those, in the majority, who work for the regulator would be unemployable in the industry because of their poor work ethics and abilities” and “using themselves and their own poor abilities, they set unachievable regulations for operators to follow”

    Sound a bit like those in the FDA or TGA, eh!

    Now, I have highlighted a word near the bottom of your article in this sentence, ‘Few people know that new prescription drugs have a one in five change of causing serious reactions after they have been approved.’ Because the word “change” should surely be “chance”! Just shows that one word or one letter in one word can totally change the meaning of the total article just by chance!

    Thanks for all you do and have done, particularly for being part of THINCS

    Oh Malcolm. You are spot on yet again. A 6 week spell in hospital following major surgery this year was an eye opener. The major event of the day was the morning and evening round with the drugs trolley. Nurses were amazed that at. 89 I was only on one tablet a day , for blood pressure. Everyone else was stuffed with a variety of tablets and capsules . Whilst the nitty gritty bodily needs were taken care of by overworked underlings , the main preoccupation of the hospital “care” was seemingly in the careful handing out of a wide variety of expensive drugs with names that obviously needed a Nursing Degree to pronounce, or understand. The big corporations have us in their power, with so many literally bewitched by the smoke screen with which they disguise their only objectives,,,,,,,money and power. A malign set up.

    1. Steve

      From my experiences with acquaintances and family it always seems to be the case that once put on medication you are never taken off it. The MIL is on about 20 pills a day, with about half of them apparently to counterbalance the affects of the others !!
      Is this really medical progress or medical corruption ?

      1. Tom

        In several instances, the docs said I would be on such and such a pill forever. As a result of this blatant arrogance, I take no pills. In a real medical world devoid of big pharma control, the doc would seek to keep you off pills for any length of time.

        1. AhNotepad

          That is my attitude too. Fortunately one GP said years ago “You can come and see me and I can give you something that will make you better in two weeks, or you can stay at home and you will get better in a fortnight “.


          1. Mr Chris

            I recently went to see my doctor. I have a friend who at 87 sees the local cardiologue every year. Since I am 83 I asked him if I should do the same. Since he and I do the same fitness course, he asked if I could do such and such an exercise for the abdominal muscles, and it turned out I could do more series than he could. Next question was on biking, electric or muscle. Muscle. I cited a 2 km hill that I regularly ride up. Last thing listen to heart, which he passed as fine. So don’t bother with the cardiologue.
            I then expressed the view that if once you start with specialists and hospitals, you never finished, there were tests and then more tests.
            He agreed with me

    2. Eddie

      Completely agree. I’ve just come out of hospital after major spinal surgery. My objective whilst in there was to get off the drugs as quickly as possible and out the door. The nurses and doctors were amazed at my lack of interest in painrelief despite telling them I was only a 1 out of 10 on the pain scale. I can see how easy it is to be trapped by an endlessly expanding regime of drugs.

    Whilst the above about the FAA is correct the pilots were partly culpable. They should have spotted what was happening (runaway trim) and indeed one captain did so on one of planes that crashed a day or so earlier. This was a senior captain sitting in the cockpit jump seat. Disaster was averted but none of these 3 pilots thought to correctly detail the event in the plane’s log book.

    This will be seen by some as racist but no US versions of this plane crashed despite there being vastly more in the air, this is because US pilots and maintenance engineers are better. Ditto Europe. This is fact, whether this is training or cultural I know not.

    Most of the medical profession are, like the aformentioned pilots, culpable in the unfolding tradegy of mRNA vaccines but like the Boeing CEO will go unpunished and have already been well rewarded.

    1. Harry de Boer

      That senior captain was orally informed by another about the peculiarity of the adaptation. A normal pilot should have been informed through either training or manual. The information was kept out of the manual ‘to not bother the pilots with it’.

  19. Mark Waters

    Spot on Dr Kendrick. I have experienced this year the the horrible side effects of taking a medication for a bowel scan. Just about recovered now but with little help from My GP,The hospital who prescribed it or Bayer who made the stuff. Indeed Bayer wrote to me saying it was my fault and would not help. I found out that 1 in 10 people who take the stuff (gastrogafin) get bad side effects. A fast and a couple of enemas would of been just as effective and safe but no I was not not allowed..

    I’ve been having problems with my Boeing 737 PSA which coincidentally also causes issues affecting its pitching up and down. This is a common problem with the older models.

    Unfortunately, the PSA ‘recordings malfunction’ (forgive the mechanical/ technical jargon) also causes a problem with the hydraulics, which I understand in the industry is called Nocturia and this causes regular night time short haul flight issues to the toilet.

    The senior consultant engineer, whose opinion was sought to resolve the problem, recommended that Finasteride would do the job and that my short haul flights would soon be a thing of the past.

    I consulted the online manual – the NHS – and entering Finasteride into the search, there were the usual suspects…potential side effects.
    I persevered and almost shut down the manual at one point, but then changed my mind and there buried in the obscure last section nine – ‘Common Questions’ – I stumbled across the fourth question: Is it safe to take long term?

    I found this little gem

    ‘Finasteride does not increase your risk of getting prostate cancer. However, if you take finasteride and later get prostate cancer then you’re more likely to have a fast growing tumour.’

    Surprised that this was not mentioned when chatting with the consultant, or indeed mentioned earlier in the NHS write up, I decided that this particular pilot, with a reading of 11.8 on the instrument panel, will opt to forgo this particular remedy.

    1. Eggs ‘n beer

      Martin, thanks for your clear and concise description of your flight issues. My own Nocturian journeys have been many since the teenage years (inflammation of the control valve possibly brought on by much cycling) but there were never any issues maintaining altitude. In recent years however the Pharmaceutical Safety Advice levels had been creeping up to 13 which is well beyond their minimum levels for ‘doing something, preferably expensive’. To be brief, a daily cocktail of tomato juice (in the form of Passata) with curcumin has reduced the level to 8.7 as of six months ago and the nightly visits are reduced to one or less, which has also resulted in improved sleep.

      1. Martin

        Thanks for sharing the problem you have experienced and I’m pleased to hear that it does not impair your ability to maintain altitude.
        My pitching up issues are mainly attributed to the main pump malfunction, having experienced five MIs in ten years, the bloody hydraulics ain’t what they used to be. Damned nuisance , what?
        I’ll look into your suggested tomato curcumin additives and who knows.
        Chocks away!

      Lycopene (from high doses of tomatoe paste!), nettle root tea, saw palmetto.

      My night flight involves a 3.30 am eyes closed, (so I can prevent any light from wakening me up any more – which reminds me of a senior accountant who used to get his books out so he could “balance them a little bit more”) radarless fumble to the receptacle followed by a 2nd lower groin wake up call around 3 hours later – on a good flight – sorry night. My cuz tells me to try lying on my back, bum against the wall and legs vertical as can be. Something to do with fluids – I presume, the intent to bring it all home before rest.

      1. AhNotepad

        To get over the shut eyes need, I got a small multi-led torch, took it abart and removed all the LEDs. Replaced one LED with a red one and set the current to 10mA. That gives just enough light to see, but not enough to affect night vision. If any of that is too technical, get someone to help.

          1. AhNotepad

            Mr Chris, I wob’t be selling these, they might make money if they were bought by the thousands from china for a few pence each and then sold for several pounds, but that’s not what interests me. A way to do it is to chat to someone you know who dabbles with electronics, give them a couple of cheap torches from ebay and ask for the mod. If you got a few you could give them a couple for doing it. They might be grateful as I doubt they have thought of it and they can avoid stubbing their toe in the dark, or get a better night’s sleep through not having to put the light on. This is a much more sociable way of going about it than looking for a profit. We don’t have to take after big pharma.

          2. cavenewt

            Pretty sure you could just buy a red flashlight, or cobble something together using red cellophane in a less technical manner 🙂

          3. Jerome savage

            A low output light that plugs in to a hall socket gives enough light to avoid toe collisions- also useful to close one eye throughout the visit, thereby minimising the waking process.

    Here’s a comparison of the safety record of airline transportation industry and the vaccine industry.

    US airlines carried 674 million passengers in 2021. There were no fatalities in 2021 and 10 in 2022 year to date. Covid vaccine doses in the US were 658 million to 31 August 2022. According to VAERS there have been 32,000 deaths and 185,000 hospitalisations. We know these are underreported.

    Now imagine if US airlines had the same safety record as Covid vaccines, even using the underreported figures. Let’s express the deaths and hospitalisations in terms of number of Boeing 737s. This plane carries between 150 and 210 passengers depending on the type. Let’s use an average of 150 passengers as they don’t all fly full. The number of vaccine deaths is 4.3 Boeing 737 equivalents per week. The number of vaccine hospitalisations is 24.3 Boeing 737 equivalents per week. These are weekly figures not annual.

    Imagine the US airline industry having 4.3 Boeing 737s downed per week with all on board dead. Imagine the US airline industry having a further 24.3 Boeing 737 incidents every week with all on board maimed and injured. Nobody in the National Transportation Board would be in a job.

    1. Martin Back

      How do you get 32,000 deaths? The CDC admits to 17,749 deaths reported on VAERS, which no doubt will be mostly explained away as not being due to the vaccine, and we know there is considerable under-reporting, so who knows what the real figure is. But it would be nice to know how the number was derived.

      Selected Adverse Events Reported after COVID-19 Vaccination
      Updated Dec. 5, 2022

      “Reports of death after COVID-19 vaccination are rare. FDA requires healthcare providers to report any death after COVID-19 vaccination to VAERS, even if it’s unclear whether the vaccine was the cause. Reports of adverse events to VAERS following vaccination, including deaths, do not necessarily mean that a vaccine caused a health problem. More than 655 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines were administered in the United States from December 14, 2020, through November 30, 2022. During this time, VAERS received 17,749 preliminary reports of death (0.0027%) among people who received a COVID-19 vaccine. ”

      1. Harry de Boer

        Incidents reported on VAERS are about 10-100 times underreported.

        Also, even if one of the pilots in your plane die from the mRNA injection induced spike protein damages, you’re still more likely to die on your way to and from the airport, than while on the plane.

    2. Andrew H

      Thanks for finding the stats so I didn’t have to.
      Airlines are incredibly safe according to the stats. Yes, the Boeing incident was an aberration, but if planes were all of a sudden rapidly dropping out of the sky, we’d know about it. I think nearly all of us would still get on one tomorrow.
      But if the media broadcast deaths from big pharma, in the same way that they broadcast plane crashes, it would be an eye-opener to many.
      The news channels would never stop broadcasting.
      The airline industry is set up such that any lessons learned are quickly disseminated to ALL airlines and aircraft manufacturers. I don’t think they are anywhere near as bad as #bigpharma coverups.
      Imagine if the healthcare sector operated on a similar basis? I recommend the book “Black Box Thinking” by Matthew Syed.

      Taking it a step further, remember the incidents at the Alton Towers Theme Park where people lost limbs from a ride that went wrong?
      Terrible, and compensation was rightly issued. In full media glare.
      BUT, I knew that this was vanishingly rare, so when my son and I went to a theme park shortly after, it was comparatively deserted! And yes, people were staying away because they thought they could be in mortaldanger going on the rides.

        1. Dave

          As a former engineering risk analyst, I can say that risk analysis recognises exactly what Malcolm says. A single mass casualty incident, think BIG smoking hole in the ground (Flixborough, Piper Alpha, Bhopal and so on) is dealt with differently. The jargon term is societal risk and in industrial major hazard risk analyses is considered separately from individual risk, with its own “risk criteria”. It simply reflects the fact that “society” takes a totally different view about such events. Whether that is right or wrong is another matter. You cannot hide a “smoking hole in the ground death” toll, unlike some of Pharma’s bigger crimes, which is IMO likely the major difference

        2. Martin Back

          This raises the whole question of the informal dissemination of information.

          I genuinely thought that doctors would alert each other that the mRNA vaccine was more dangerous than the CDC said, and would counsel their patients appropriately, but that doesn’t seem to have happened.

          With the Boeing crashes, some pilots could handle the MCAS dysfunction, but the news doesn’t seem to have spread pilot-to-pilot. It seems it needs to go up the chain and down again. There have been other cases where some pilots knew about e.g. problematic landing gear on a certain aircraft, alerted management, but management didn’t act on it and other pilots didn’t know about it and crashed on landing.

          Professionals need to talk to each other about these things. I know in civil engineering there is not much discussion of failures. You might learn from an older foreman who was there what really happened, but it stays in-company, it never becomes common knowledge.

        3. Paul Fruitbat

          “If a drug kills people, it is very difficult for anyone to notice”.

          Especially if the drug’s murderous “side-effects” mimic many other, perhaps “natural” causes. Such as heart attacks, clots, cancer, brain diseases…

          Even in the case of obvious, well-known poisons such as glyphosate, the manufacturers simply challenge any critics or claimants to prove that it was glyphosate specifically that harmed them – not anything natural or any of the thousands of other artificial chemicals swilling around in our food, drink, air, and water.

          (Glyphosate harms every other form of life, so it would be astonishing if humans were safe from it).

    “climate change denial, pro gun lobbies, anti-semitic conspiracies”

    You kind of put yourself out there, didn’t you? Well, I’ll play…

    …as opposed to communists, climate change advocates, globalists, and pharma shills? 🙂

    In physics, climate change is controversial.

    What do you think has a bigger impact on earth climate–the sun’s climate or man’s actions? The question is degree and significance.

    It’s not only physicists who are at the table–some clever economists also play.

    1. Harry de Boer

      The correlation between the polar component of the solar magnetic field and earth’s average temperature is staggeringly large.

  24. thecovidpilot

    I had a chat with a fellow physicist who was very agreeable, but was pro-mask. We batted round a few things, and he eventually realized that masking the public is absurd without training–and only N95s or better. And there’s a need to research carrying capacity or time to change is just a SWAG.

    This doesn’t mean that I would want to wear any mask ever or that I would ever support mask mandates.

    1. Steve

      Before all the covid nonsense, there had been various studies carried by the medical profession on mask effectiveness. I believe the consensus was that they are of little use apart from stopping blood and gore and other unmentionables splashing into your face. Stopping minute elements getting into the airways (which have natural filters) has to be balanced against the need to breathe air. No masks available to the masses can achieve that balance. Masks are a politically driven con.

    2. Harry de Boer

      I don’t think preventing a human body to encounter respiratory viruses is a good thing. Even if face masks worked.

      1. Paul Fruitbat

        Well into my eighth decade, I am beginning to believe that my immune system has provided me with something far better than any mask: mucus, and plenty of it!

        It’s not really a social advantage, but now I have read about how the mucus in the respiratory system is laced with nice little immune cells, I’m coming to see it as a very simple-minded but perhaps highly effective way to stop viruses in their tracks.

        (Sorry if anyone finds this offensive, but after all we are discussing medical matters. You should have heard some of my mother’s dinner-table conversation!)

    The American outfits that deal with public health are a source of much fun. Frinstance, who is the Head of Ethics with the job of keeping an eye on the antics of Dr Fauci and his cronies? Yes, it’s Mrs Fauci.

    P.S. The Public Health and Boeing cases are similar except that Boeing kills far fewer. You say “I was thinking more along the lines of a very long jail sentence.” Whereas I am thinking more along the lines of a very short rope.

      One could easily and justifiably add the smallpox vaccine, the MMR vaccine, live polio vaccine, opioids, anti-depressants, and many more to the list.

      It’s amazing how history repeats; we’ve been through similar scenarios repeatedly in the last couple of centuries. Regarding vaccination, this book opened my eyes and I highly recommend it.

    Everybody, the psychos are at it again with their pseudo pandemic planning. This time it’s callec “Catastrophic Contasion”, where they engender fear of an entero-virus so it’s the yound ones who die in 2025. Seems to me to be about the right time for the more delayed adverse effects of the current criminal jabs to take effect in the young. Probably why the crims like Bourla want to jab everyone as soon as they arrive in the world. A whole load of fear will be generated,, just as the covid crap, and most people, still wide asleep, will believe it and rush headlong to get the latest 100 day jab. Meanwhile they will be encouraged to pour scorn and hatred on anyone capable of understanding it is just more tyrrany.

    So look it up if you don’t already kno, and get informed. It’s part of their sick mentality that if they tell you, and you don’t object, you are deemed to have accepted it is for your own good.

    Hmmm… This from the Website of Jamie Metzl (founder of DRASTIC):

    “Just as we wouldn’t imagine having a plane crash and not immediately trying to figure out what happened, we can’t let the COVID-19 crisis unfold without urgently understanding how our systems have so spectacularly failed. There are plenty of fingers to point, and we must thoughtfully point them now, at all of us, for our own good. For all we know, a new and even worse pandemic could begin even before we have overcome this one… Until we get to the bottom of all these failures and work to fix them, we remain dangerously susceptible to the next pandemic… Whatever the origins of the outbreak, including the possibility of an accidental leak from the Chinese virology lab in Wuhan, China’s dangerous and ongoing information suppression activities are the foundations of this crisis.”

    We have 5 big plays ongoing at the moment

    1. Covid/vaccines/Big Pharma (scare-compliance and lots and lots of cashflow moola… ‘out of nowhere’). A Banking-Big Pharma reward scheme

    2. Climate Change (a Universal tax system?). Basic tax gathering

    3. Ukraine (a sleeping asset so great it’s worth destroying just to re-build it alone). Oil, Gas, Banking-Military-Industrial Complex reward(s) straight of the top

    4. WEF & the political-class ‘gangsters’ (a cull by Munchausen Syndrome by policy?). A Geo-political bean-fest of manifestos and mandates.

      Thanks for that. I call it excellent.

      Among other great points, Eugyppius wrote, “Looking too deeply into these questions threatens to turn up evidence that we don’t really need the pandemicists at all.”

      And that reminded me of the following:

      ” Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. Wars…are now begun by first throwing a mob into a panic; they are ended only when it has spent its ferine fury.

      All the wars [and, I might add the endless supply of other panics] of Christendom are now disgusting and degrading; the conduct of them has passed out of the hands of nobles and knights and into the hands of mob-orators, moneylenders, and atrocity-mongers

      That’s great! I don’t know how I haven’t heard of these guys before. Will definitely be following up. For those who, like me, are less patient with video content, this might be preferable:

      The video you linked did include a momentary clip about sugar and how fake science around that was virtuously debunked. I think that’s somewhat of an exaggeration. Tobacco might’ve been a better example.

      From the project summary (emphasis mine):

      “We conclude the problem we have identified in grievance studies, which has taken over large sectors of the humanities and social sciences, is real and significant. That problem is that a political bias which intentionally blends activism into scholarship (sometimes described as “academic leftism”) has become dominant and entrenched in varying degrees within those fields it has successfully corrupted. Moreover, it aims to spread its assumptions and methods into other fields, *including the hard sciences. This, in turn, delegitimizes this scholarship and casts serious doubt upon its conclusions and results. These results and methods are therefore in need of reconsideration.*”

    Hi Dr. Kendrick. I’m an Electrical and Automation Engineer, now retired, with a career in complex control systems in the steel industry. Many of our operator control desks are as complicated and cluttered as the cockpit of these modern aircraft. Apparently, the root cause of the crashes was that new features were introduced to partially trained crew and these new features weren’t even in the training manuals. The level of complexity in these modern aircraft are beyond the capability of the pilots to operate. Simple problems lead to major mistakes.

    I’d like to point out that the medical profession is just as complex and beyond understanding for the average person and probably to some degree for the trained medical professional especially when technology is changing so rapidly. There’s not much difference in the airline industry pushing an untested airplanes on untrained pilots or the pharmacutical industry pushing untested medicines and vaccines on patients. It’s all about the $$$ and and an overly complicated mess that nobody can understand or fix.

    1. Martin Back

      Like most aircraft crashes, there’s a chain of events. To make the 737 more economical, they needed bigger engines, which changed the handling characteristics of the aircraft, which meant retraining pilots, which airlines would have to pay for, making the plane less attractive. So they installed the MCAS system which was designed to make the new 737 handle like the older models, so pilots didn’t need retraining and they didn’t need to update the manuals. The FAA permitted this.

      But the MCAS system relied on inputs from a single Angle of Attack sensor. (Boeings have two, Airbuses have three AoA sensors.) If that single sensor was wonky the MCAS would misbehave and pilots, not knowing about the MCAS, would have no idea what was wrong.

      From memory, one sensor was replaced but not calibrated after installation, the other was jammed or damaged in some way, causing the crashes.

    2. Geoff

      People would be shocked to discover how little most medical personnel know, even when a given situation is not at all complicated or technical. A huge problem in medical “education”is that the drug industry is involved in training (and apparently brainwashing) physicians and other “providers” and this began some time ago.

      “One reason [for poor training] is suggested by a paper read by Dr. George W. Dana at a Pharmaceutical Advertising Club Seminar in New York City…in 1959…

      ‘…A great deal of what these doctors know about these new products, which now constitute the major part of their prescriptions, and for which they are in a position to prescribe so specifically, they have learned from the medical communications of the industry Thus the doctor has been twice blessed by you. You have created the product, and you have instructed him as to its usage. You are emerging as a dominant influence in postgraduate therapeutics.” That the situation is as Dr. Dana described it no one doubts.”

    Speaking of bulls and Augean stables, how fitting is it that an icon of Wall Street is a huge one? Anyway, in order to clean out the stables we need first to find them. Here’s a fragment of the map.

    “…That the East India Company, obtained the monopoly of that trade by bribery, and corruption. That the power thus obtained, they have prostituted to extortion, and other the most cruel and horrid purposes, the Sun ever beheld. That by the wealth obtained by these means, they have poisoned the Constitution at home, into a system of corruption, which they are now endeavouring to extend to this country. “

    – HAMPDEN, The Alarm, Number V (last paragraph), NEW YORK, October 27th, 1773

    “…on September 24, 1599…something momentous happened…The first global joint-stock company was thus born, undoubtedly Tudor England’s most revolutionary invention. Its name? The East India Company…

    “…[it was} something new: corporations with power so immense, it dwarfed that of their countries of origin, and could be deployed in faraway places assiduously to exploit people and resources. Shareholding and well-governed share markets fired up history, separating ownership from the rest of the East India Company’s activities unleashed a fluid, irresistible force. Unchecked, the East India Company grew more powerful than the British state, answerable only to its shareholders. At home, its bureaucracy corrupted and largely controlled Her majesty’s government. Abroad, its 200,000-strong private army oversaw the destruction of well-functioning economies in Asia and a number of Pacific islands and ensured the systematic exploitation of their peoples.”

      Excellent observation. From an anthropological viewpoint, every time humanity comes up with an institution, whether governmental, religious, or economic, that institution is eventually subverted by the self-interested (call them sociopaths or psychopaths or whatever), who retool the institution further for their purposes.

      In these dark days I can’t help feeling that unless we figure out a way to preempt these people by safeguarding our institutions, our species is doomed.

      1. Geoff

        Thanks and I agree.

        I’ve long observed that if it’s institutionalized, it’s dehumanized, or worse. I don’t know when our species will finally be doomed, but it seems to have long been damned!

        It’s possible that Balzac was onto something when he claimed that behind every great fortune there is a great crime since it appears to me that more than a few Augean stables have been built and or funded by “philanthropists” of questionable characters. For example, I know of several buildings on various prominent medical campuses that are named for big money “philanthropists” who fall into that category. I’d also be very surprised if the bulk of “donations” come free of strings; think Gates and his efforts to “save humanity,” etc.

        Then there’s this sort of thing which, of course, is well above suspicion.:
        “The authors of the study [which bashes “anti-vaxxers”} are all members of the University of Toronto Temerty Faculty and the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. This faculty and section of the university were funded by a $250 million grant from James C. Temerty and the Temerty Foundation in 2020; it was the single largest gift in Canadian history. The money was designated to various areas of the university, but a large portion went directly into COVID-19 research projects.”

        Read more here.:

        It seems that Balzac could have just as well added that all too often great fortunes can also be surrounded by great crimes.

        Indeed – self interest overrides everything. The breadmaker has no alternative to putting good, tasty & fresh bread on the market in order to serve his own interest and make himself a living. Where the outputs & outcomes are not clearly defined or can be interpreted in many different ways, marketing strategy will seek to determine that they are indeed doing a great job – and if not, it’s cos the budget needs enhanced. To achieve maximum return, marketing will be an end in itself. In one scenario I became aware of the markettee (for want of better word etc) and the marketter developing a deep personal relationship (well maybe it was only skin deep). Who was exploiting who here – apart from exploiting the punter of course. The world is full of augean stables.

    Doctor, I’d like to draw your attention to a recent study published on policosanols (Very Long Chain Fatty Acids).

    Click to access WJARR-2021-0242.pdf

    It references multiple other studies that show several extremely beneficial effects. As you know, policosanols are usually packaged in a grain’s germ along with B-complex and vitamin E.

    * anti-inflammatory effects via AMPK activation

    * antiapoptotic effects resulting in the thinning and repair of intima in arteries that were mechanically damaged

    * antioxidant effects resulting in limiting lipid peroxidation

    * “Consumption of Policosanol for 12 weeks in healthy subjects significantly reduced systolic and diastolic blood pressure, as well as mean arterial pressure in 12 weeks of treatment, and also decreased total cholesterol, LDL-c and triglycerides while increasing HDL-c”

    The next wonder drug? All of this on only 20mg per day. That costs literal pennies.

    Time to look into this for the next edition of The Clot Thickens!

    1. Eggs ‘n beer

      If I am healthy (BP 113/76), wouldn’t reducing my BP make me sick? And why would reducing my cholesterol be a good thing?

      1. Jerome savage

        I thought the same. I’m satisfied that all cholesterol has a purpose. But I figured that, although all cholesterol has a purpose, maybe this “very long chain fatty acid” ensures a lot of good work is done, thereby reducing the need for & therefore the production of the likes of the LDL with the extra protein (forget its name) that serves to do an emergency repair job on bleeding tissue as & when scurvy hits – (given vit C deficiency).
        My take on the relevant section from The clot thickens suggests the above.

      2. cremes

        Google for “cholesterol all cause mortality u-shaped graph” and in the top 20-30 items you’ll find two studies. One study was performed in Japan against a population of, I think, around 40,000 patients. The study showed that all-cause mortality had a u-shaped graph wherein mortality went UP at the low end and UP at the high end. In the middle was the lowest mortality rate. They pinned it at 200-240 ng/dl. A second study done in Norway pretty much confirmed these results but I think their range was 190-230 ng/dl.

        So, if your cholesterol is outside of that range then perhaps you’d want to lower it. Yeah, these ranges were for total cholesterol and not LDL; they are still correlated.

        These studies were likely lacking in certain rigor so I wouldn’t blame you if you discounted them. My cardiologist is flummoxed when I bring this up and tries to defend the goal of getting below 140 ng/dl. I just point out that this range of low cholesterol is correlated with massively increased cancer risk.

        As for BP, no you won’t get sick. My wife has 95/60 every day of her life and has no problems. You might want to tune yours up a bit more. Or, perhaps the policosanols won’t reduce YOUR cholesterol or lower your BP.

        I assume you at least glanced at the paper since I didn’t mention cholesterol lowering as a benefit yet it’s present in the paper. Did you not find any other outcomes useful? If not, don’t take any policosanols.

    2. An Italian Australian at the Tropics

      We know of the beneficial effects of wheat germ oil since a long time, decades.

      But those effects are all achievable with a number of other nutritional and lifestyle changes.

      Low carb/ketogenic diet, sunshine exposure, sleep hygiene, red/infrared light therapy amongst others.

    3. David

      There are a variety of studies that have looked at policosanols. They are extracted from cane sugar. Most studies have been done in Cuba, where policosanols come from (more or less). It is noteworthy that studies done in Cuba seem to show benefit, whereas outside Cuba they do not

    Happy New Year Malcolm!

    Thanks for your last bog and as always it makes interesting reading.

    Just thought I‘d share the story in the press last week that mentioned the lack of statins and blood pressure medications were being blamed for the increase in cardiac arrests and strokes. Individuals were not getting their statins and the blood pressure pills owing to GP wait times!! I spat out my tea at that point – fortunately the news I was reading was on-line rather than in paper format. What a cheek to blame the lack of useless statins on the increase in heart conditions instead of looking at the huge elephant in the room that is leading to more myocarditis and strokes.

    Oh and changing the duvet, shovelling snow, sleeping with the light on was also blamed for increasing cardiac incidents…..

    We are living in a clown show!

    Kind regards
