Whenever whooping cough breaks out in Australia, the medical profession indulge in their usual lies about why they are having (*yawn*) yet another whooping cough outbreak. This year is no exception except the lies have a little extra bribery and fearmongering twisted into the foment provided to the media.
Yesterday's lie came from Dr Mitchell Smith, New South Wales Health Department mouthpiece...

Ever wondered about paediatricians who blog? This is one time where it would be of educational value to read all the embedded links. The full implications of some types of medical "practice" might not sink in, unless you do.
Once upon a time, when I was still on Mothering, a mother told her story of her child who had seizures after her first DPT (whole cell vaccine) and who died aged 8 and a h...

I notice that you made a "resume" on the 18th October 2008, which you have put on your website. There's just a few problems and they are big ones in my opinion.
A CV is supposed to be a professional document. I've downloaded the pdf, and I'm putting it up here on my blog, just so that people can see for themselves what it looks like, in the event you decide to change it.

Flooding back into my brain, as I read this headline, were headlines you might not remember, from 1976; "World is on Brink of Killer Flu Epidemic"..."Swine Flu immunization: 'Go' at last" ... "World-wide alert for Killer flu virus"... "President takes swine flu injection to allay scare". All of which added up to one case which was ordinary swine flu, no killer virus at all. But that's not wha...

To those offended by "Pure Fiction", it is not my intention to accuse vaccine defenders of fabricating information. It is my intention to point out key weaknesses in the manner in which very important issues are approached or presented.
If people don't care about how others will perceive professionalism, quality of proof and studied analysis, fine. I do, and I also think that transparency is i...

Screenplay Title. Mouldy Morals.
Page 187: Scene: "The Bunker"
Setting: Board room. Yellow light from upper left to focus on wooden table centre stage: light to expand to encompass a scene of many people talking loudly, eating finger food off plates scattered across a U-shaped table.
Justina Fogg (minute taker of the meeting) rings the bell on the table. "I just need quiet to think." (curls...

"Ah yes. Strange title. In fact, Hilary, you have altered it somewhat...." That I have. This stunner of an article in the Herald from Reuters had me shaking my head. We shouldn't be talking about mice: lets talk about mothers!
The article says: "Mice forced to swim endlessly until they surrendered and just floated, waiting to drown, could be conditioned to regain their will to live when a ton...

“Orgasmic Birth” is an awesome film, in the true sense of the word, talking to the deepest needs of women, at the gut, emotional, and intellectual level. In one sense, words fail me. The film follows home birthing parents growing and being reborn as different people, fulfilling their full potential of parenthood, and in particular womanhood. Interwoven are scenes of emotionally...
