Why “Peer Reviewed” Science Continues To Lose A Lot of Credibility

  • The Facts:

    John Ioannidis, an epidemiologist at the Stanford University School of Medicine, published an article titled “Why Most Published Research Findings Are False,” which subsequently became the most widely accessed article in the history.

  • Reflect On:

    The corporate influence that has now taken over science. How much of our science is really legit? How much of it is false? How much of it is dogma?

Science today, in all fields, is plagued by corruption. Yet, more often than not, attempts to create awareness about scientific fraud — an issue that few journalists have been willing to address — are met with the response, “Well, is it peer-reviewed?”

Although good science should always be reviewed, using this label as a form of credibility can be dangerous, causing people to dismiss new information and research instantaneously if it doesn’t have  it, particularly when that information counters long-held beliefs ingrained into human consciousness via mass marketing, education, and more.

Unfortunately, it’s becoming increasingly apparent that we are being lied to about the products and medicines we use on a daily basis.

If you’re one who commonly points to the “peer-reviewed” label, then you should know that there are many researchers and insiders who have been creating awareness about the problem with this label for years.

Who Says So? And From What Fields?

  • Climate Science

Many people have spoken up against the corporatization and politicization of science. For example, Professor Lennart Bengtsson, a Swedish climatologist and former director of the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg, has voiced his concern that some scientists are, according to an interview given to the Daily Mail, “mixing up their scientific role with that of climate activist.” He claims that there are multiple indicators for how “science is gradually being influenced by political views.” (source)

Professor Joanna D. Haigh, a British physicist, professor of atmospheric physics at Imperial College London, co-director of the Grantham Institute for Climate Change, and former president of the Royal Meteorological Society, has also spoken up about the politicization of climate science. (source)

The Australian prime minister’s chief business advisor has done the same, and so have other politicians, like Senator James Inhofe, chairman of the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. You can read more about that story here.

Unfortunately, the mainstream vilifies such people, and to great effect.

Below is an excellent snippet of a lecture given by Richard Lindzen, one of the world’s top experts in the field and lead author of “Physical Climate Processes and Feedbacks,” Chapter 7 of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Third Assessment Report on climate change. He knows that all climate science we receive is IPCC United Nations science. One of the scientists mentioned on the senator’s list, in this video, he talks about the politics of climate science and the manipulation of data — something that plagues all fields of science today.

  • Medical Science/Health Science/Food

In the case of medicine, a lot of information has emerged showing just how much corruption really goes on. The Editors-in-Chiefs of several major medical journals have been quite blunt, with perhaps one of the best examples coming from Dr. Richard Horton, the current Editor-in-Chief of The Lancet, who says, “The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue.” (source)

Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and longtime Editor-in-Chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ), also considered one of the most prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals in the world, alongside The Lancet, has said that “it is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.”  (source)

John Ioannidis, an epidemiologist at the Stanford University School of Medicine, published an article titled “Why Most Published Research Findings Are False,” which subsequently became the most widely accessed article in the history of the Public Library of Science (PLoS). (source)

Here is another great quote:

“The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not only in terms of the practice of medicine, but also in terms of teaching and research. The academic institutions of this country are allowing themselves to be the paid agents of the pharmaceutical industry. I think it’s disgraceful.”

Arnold Seymour Relman (1923-2014), Harvard professor of medicine and former Editor-in-Chief of The New England Medical Journal  (source)

As you can see, this has been a problem for quite some time.

A Couple of Examples:

  • GMOs

One of the best examples of political influence over scientific publication comes from an episode involving Genetically Modified Maize. Monsanto published a study a few years ago which purported to demonstrate the effects of GMO maize on rats over a 90 day period. They reported no ill effects on the rodents from this diet. Given the fact that there are no long term studies examining the health risks associated with GMOs, independent researchers then decided to conduct the same study, with one difference: Their study lasted over a year rather than a mere three months. Researchers found instances of severe liver and kidney damage, as well as hormonal disturbances, alongside the development of large tumours and mortality among the treatment groups. The study was published in November of 2012, in the Journal of Food and Chemical Toxicology, and then instantly retracted. After hundreds of scientists condemned the retraction, the U.S. did not publish it. The study was then re-published in multiple peer-reviewed scientific journals (in Europe last year [2014]), like Environmental Sciences Europe. This is why it shouldn’t be a surprise that so many countries in Europe have  banned the growing of genetically modified crops. Many also have bans and/or severe restrictions on importing GM products, citing health and environmental concerns.

This fact was also made clear by WikiLeaks documents:

Resistance to the advent of genetically modified foods has been pronounced across Europe. The continent features some of the strictest regulations governing the use and cultivation of GMO products, and public skepticism about biotech goods is quite high – a fact not lost on American diplomats. In a lengthy report dating from late 2007 , a cable issued by the State Department outlined its “Biotechnology Outreach Strategy, ‘which, among other things, recognized the European Union’s ‘negative views on biology’ and committed as a national priority to limiting them (O7STATE160639).

Initial attention paid to the State Department’s part in pushing industrial manufactures on its allies obscured the even bigger role it played in assuring a place for genetically modified agricultural products (GMOs) in a region that largely wanted nothing to do with them. The American campaign promoting biotech products was a worldwide effort. In all, some 1,000 documents from the Cablegate cache address this effort, a significant number of which originate in Europe. U.S. diplomats on the continent gave considerable attention to insuring the interests of American biotech firms in Europe – Whether through “education” programs, government lobbying, or outright coercion – as well as stripping down European Union regulations designed to act as a bugger against them. Available cables published by WikiLeaks suggest that the United States invests considerable time, effort, and expense in its operations on behalf of the American biotech firms.

Read more about it from The WikiLeaks Files: The World According To U.S. Empire.

In 1996, Steven M. Druker, being a public interest attorney and the Executive Director of the Alliance For Bio-Integrity, initiated a lawsuit in 1998 that forced the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to divulge its files on genetically engineered foods.

He’s recently published a book on the lawsuit that provides details of his experience. He has also released the documents on his website, showing the significant hazards of genetically engineering foods and the flaws in the FDA’s policy.

It’s called Altered Genes, Twisted Truth: How the Venture to Genetically Engineer Our Food Has Subverted Science, Corrupted Government, and Systematically Deceived the Public.

  • Pharmaceutical Drugs

There are a number of examples to choose from here, but antidepressants make the top of the list. Irving Kirsch, a lecturer in medicine at Harvard Medical School, published a study pointing out how “analyses of the published data and the unpublished data that were hidden by drug companies reveals that most (if not all) of the benefits are due to the placebo effect.” (source)

Another study published in the British Medical Journal by researchers at the Nordic Cochrane Center in Copenhagen showed that pharmaceutical companies were not disclosing all information regarding the results of their drug trials. Researchers looked at documents from 70 different double-blind, placebo-controlled trials of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) and serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRI) and found that the full extent of serious harm in clinical study reports went unreported.

Tamang Sharma, a PhD student at Cochrane and lead author of the study, said: “We found that a lot of the appendices were often only available upon request to the authorities, and the authorities had never requested them. I’m actually kind of scared about how bad the actual situation would be if we had the complete data.” (source)

Another co-author of the study, Dr. Peter Gotzsche, who co-founded the Cochrane Collaboration (the world’s foremost body in assessing medical evidence), found in a separate analysis that 100,000 people in the United States die each year from the side effects of correctly used prescription drugs, noting that “it’s remarkable that nobody raises an eyebrow when we kill so many of our own citizens with drugs.” He has published many papers arguing that our use of antidepressants is causing more harm than good, and taking into consideration the recent leaks regarding these drugs, it seems he is correct.

Below is a brief video of him elaborating on this problem:

  • Vaccines

Vaccines are getting more attention now than ever before. In fact, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Chairman of the World Mercury Project (WMP), recently announced a $100,000 challenge aimed at putting an end to the inclusion of mercury, a neurotoxin that is 100 times more poisonous than lead, in vaccines administered in the U.S and globally.

It’s offered to anybody, including journalists and scientists, who can provide a study showing that it is safe to inject mercury into babies. This will be difficult, as hundreds of studies (that were also present at the press conference in print form) show it is absolutely unsafe, and can significantly increase the risk of developing neurodegenerative disorders.

You can read more about this here.

Multiple cases of vaccine fraud have been uncovered, but this is something you might not know given the fact that the mainstream media completely ignores these facts, and vaccines are heavily marketed.

For example, Lucija Tomljenovic, who has a PhD in biochemistry and is a senior postdoctoral fellow in UBC’s Faculty of Medicine, as well as a medical investigator, uncovered documents that reveal vaccine manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, and health authorities have known about multiple dangers associated with vaccines but chose to withhold them from the public. (source)

But perhaps one of the biggest revelations in medical history, also unfortunately ignored by mainstream media, came only a couple of years ago and is still making noise, as it should.

Dr. William Thompson, a longtime senior CDC scientist, published some of the most commonly cited pro-vaccine studies, which showed that there was absolutely no link between the MMR vaccine and autism (Thompson, et al. 2007, Price, et al. 2010Destefano, et al. 2004). However, Dr. Thompson recently admitted that it was the lowest point” in his career when he “went along with that paper.” He went on to say that he and the other authors “didn’t report significant findings” and that he is completely ashamed” of what he did. He was complicit and went along with this,” and regrets that he has been a part of the problem.” (source)(source)(source)

A  study with revised information and no data omitted was published by Dr. Brian Hooker (a contact of Dr. Thompson) in the peer reviewed journal Translational Neurodegeneration, and it found a 340% increased risk of autism in African American boys receiving the Measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine. The study has since been retracted, around the same time this controversy arose.

You can read the full study here, although, unsurprisingly, it has since been retracted.

Thompson’s attorneys, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Bryan Smith of Morgan & Morgan, also released a statement from Dr. Thompson, which mentioned Hooker: I have had many discussions with Dr. Brian Hooker over the last 10 months regarding studies  the CDC has carried out regarding vaccines and neurodevelopmental outcomes including autism spectrum disorders. I share his belief that CDC decision-making and analyses should be transparent.” (source)

he had to invoke whistleblower protection and turned extensive agency files over to Congress. He said that, for the past decade, his superiors have pressured him and his fellow scientists to lie and manipulate data to conceal a causal link between vaccines and brain injuries, including autism.

Final Thoughts

As you can see, scientific fraud is a big problem across the board, and this article has only provided a few examples. The problem is not just with GMOs and vaccines — it affects cosmetics, food, cleaning supplies, and so much more. How have so many products, which cause so much harm, been approved by the agencies that are tasked to protect us?

There are so many books on this topic, but they don’t get the attention they deserve, since the major mainstream media shareholders are identical to those of the entire health industry. Why would they bash their own products on their own national television networks?

The power of corporate America has taken over almost every aspect of our lives. If you’re wondering what we can do about it, well, I believe the first step is awareness. There is still a plethora of information that the general public is completely unaware of, but if we backtrack to a decade ago, information that used to be considered a conspiracy is now simply fact. A great example is the corporate takeover of science, as discussed in this article, but another one could be the Snowden Leaks on mass surveillance, or 9/11. Studies are now being published by physicists and engineers regarding that event.

Awareness makes it harder for the elite to manipulate us. Once we become aware of something, we can stop it. For example, look at Genetically Modified Foods and the pesticides that go with them. As soon as the masses became aware of their dangers, they began to change their shopping habits. Now, most countries around the world have completely banned these foods.

It’s difficult to accept that there are unseen powers, motivated by their own greed and lust for power, that are doing us harm disguised as good. It is only when we become aware of how we are being harmed and change our shopping habits — hurting their bottom line — that they change their tactics.  On the other hand, it’s encouraging to know that once we do come together for a common goal, anything can be accomplished, and we actually do have the potential and power to change our world.

Watch: Miley Cyrus continues tradition of pranking Jimmy Kimmel with her own wrecking crew

Jimmy Kimmel is no stranger to pranks. The veteran comic personality and host of the late-night “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” talk show has certainly played a role in his fair share of shenanigans, especially in the world of high profile celebrities. So it only makes sense that Kimmel keep his sense of humor going strong when celebrities like Britney Spears and Rihanna show up to his house in the middle of the night to wake and prank him, courtesy of his loving wife.

Recently, it was Miley Cyrus’ turn to provide the well-liked television host with some actual late night nonsense of her own. As seen in the video above, Miley and Mrs. Kimmel prove to be in cahoots as the young pop singer recruits a team of makeshift construction workers to give Mr. Kimmel an early/late wake-up while her 2013 chart-topping hit, “Wrecking Ball” plays in the background.

“For whatever reason, I have become the victim of an unusual prank multiple times now,” Kimmel explains to his studio audience prior to the clip airing on his television show the other night. “I guess this is a series now, because the other night, yet another music superstar barged into my dreams.”

Cyrus and her team can be seen lingering outside of Kimmel’s Los Angeles home in the late hours of the night while sporting hardhats and bathrobes, only to be let in the front door by Mrs. Kimmel for the chaos to ensue. Cyrus and her team of misfits enter the room with sledgehammer in hand and a character dressed in an actual wrecking ball costume. Thankfully, as usual, Kimmel keeps his cool while letting the prank play out, and hopefully this time he didn’t “Crap his pants” as he stated in the pre-video monologue commentary. He even takes some advice from Ms. Miley and gives the sledgehammer a courtesy lick as they leave him to go back to bed with his cute little mouthguard.

Only time will tell if Kimmel recruits his old trouble-making pal Adam Carolla to help him get revenge on those who have woken him up from his slumbers over the years. Your move Kimmel.

Viral ‘grad with rifle’ image continues to cause a stir as Jim Carrey joins the debate

Carrey, best known for comedies such as ‘The Mask’ and ‘Bruce Almighty,’ is also a prolific painter. His politically charged art often mocks conservative politicians, such as President Donald Trump and Senator Marco Rubio. On Friday, he took a jab at Bennett by depicting her with a deformed face, standing alongside a demon-like figure. “Thanks a bunch Goldilocks. Enjoy the show in Santa Fe tomorrow. Someday, real soon, I’ll have you for dinner,” the actor wrote on Twitter, apparently referencing the recent high school shooting in Texas, which claimed 10 lives. 

Carrey’s stunt received a mixed reaction on social media. Some praised his message, commending the Hollywood star for speaking out against guns and promoting the call for tighter gun control. 

Others voiced disappointment with the actor’s actions, accusing him of bullying, and defending Bennett’s right to bear arms.

Bennett herself was quick to respond to Carrey’s attack. “Jim you should be the one in this picture with this caption,” the 22-year-old wrote. “You’re the one that supports gun control policies that let these kids die. Is this what you have to do because you’ve become irrelevant? Disgusting.”

Bennett became a media sensation a week ago, when she donned a white dress with an AR-10 semi-automatic rifle strapped to her back, while graduating from Kent State University in Ohio. As she posed for photographs, she had “come and take it” written on her graduation cap. It was a protest against the university’s gun rules, the young woman explained. Kent State allows guests to carry firearms on campus, but not students or staff. Bennett considers the policy “insulting” and insists it makes students less safe.

The photo went viral. As of May 20, it got 28,000 “likes” and was retweeted more than 6,800 times. Bennett was met with cheers for standing up for gun rights. The image also sparked controversy for its gun-friendly nature, as it was posted several months after the deadly Parkland school shooting in February. As a result, Bennett – who was a conservative activist on campus and now holds a biology degree – received death threats. The ensuing backlash led to the right-wing group the Oath Keepers offering her free protection.

45,908 Apply for Asylum in February, Invasion continues by Tire and Jet Ski


45,908 nonwhites applied for “asylum” in Europe in February 2018, while at least another 25,306 invaded Europe across the Mediterranean in the first 14 weeks of the year, official figures reveal—with the latest invaders using inflated tires and jet skis to cross the sea to Spain.

According to the latest figures from the European Union’s “European Asylum Support Office,” 45,908 invaders had lodged “asylum applications” in EU in February 2018. Of that number 11 percent had already lodged an application previously in the same EU country.

“This implies that a sizeable share of asylum applicants had already been present in the same EU country for some time,” the EASO update said.

At least 3 percent of all applications concerned claimed to be “unaccompanied minors” (UAM). Self-claimed UAM applicants were predominantly nationals of Afghanistan (17 percent of all UAM applications), Eritreans (9 percent of all UAM applicants) and Gambians (8 percent).

The top five countries of origin of applicants remained the same as in January: Syria, Afghanistan, Iraq, Nigeria and Pakistan. These citizenships jointly accounted for a third of all applications for international protection lodged in the EU in February 2018.

According to the United Nation’s International Organization for Migration, which records landings in Europe, at least 25,306 nonwhite invaders have arrived in Europe since the beginning of 2018.

One of the latest forms of invasion, according to the Spanish Diario de Cadiz newspaper, is inflated tire tubes. Most recently, a North African was spotted trying to cross the Straits of Gibraltar to Spain on an inflated truck tire.

The Spanish coast guard intercepted the nonwhite and handed him over to immigration authorities, the newspaper said.

A report from Europol meanwhile revealed that 19 Moroccans had been arrested by Spanish police for illegally transporting invaders across the ten miles across the Strait of Gibraltar to Spain using jet skis or small inflatable boats. They charged each nonwhite €4,000 to make the crossing, and another €500 if the invader needed lodging once in Spain—all evidence that these are not “poverty stricken refugees” as the controlled media always portrays them.

As part of the operation, police carried out 7 houses searches in Almeria, Spain, where they seized drugs and over €15 000 in cash.

“The organized crime group was made up of Moroccan citizens who were residing in various EU countries, mainly France, Italy and Spain,” the Europol statement said, adding they contacted and sheltered the invaders “who had been smuggled with falsified documents from the Spanish autonomous city of Ceuta, located on the north coast of Africa, to mainland Spain.”

“Once trafficked to the Spanish mainland, the next leg of the trip sent them to their relatives in France, Italy and Spain.”

Israel Continues to Block and Sabotage Peaceful settlement in Syria


It is well known that Israel has been supporting the so-called opposition operating in Syria in order to overthrow the legitimate government of Bashar Assad since the very beginning of the Syrian crisis in 2011. Another Tel Aviv’s goal here is to gain full control over the Golan Heights which Prime Minister B. Netanyahu is currently using to provide the militants from Syria with weapons.

Besides, the fighting jihadists striving to break the war-torn country are receiving medical care in Israeli hospitals. “Israel has been always stood by our side in a heroic way,” confirmed Moatasem al-Golani, the spokesman for the rebel group Liwa Fursan al-Joulan also known as Knights of the Golan. “We wouldn’t have survived without Israel’s financial assistance, food and weapons supplies.”

To be noticed is that the Israel Defense Forces have set up special paramilitary training camps, both in terms of imparting military, paramilitary and terrorist skills and as an opportunity for radical indoctrination. According to Inside Syria Media Center’s military correspondents on the ground, the Israeli military has been providing weapons and ammunition as well as intelligence support and a full-scale air support.

Thus, Israeli AF (IAF) have carried out more than 100 airstrikes on Hezbollah and the Syrian Arab Army’s positions. Moreover, the IAF have intensified their activity by conducting an air attack on the Syrian airbase T-4 on April 9, and also on the Ash-Shayrat and Ad-Dumayr air bases on April 17, 2018.

Furthermore, there has recently appeared new evidence of Israel’s increasing supplies to the radicals affiliated with the Free Syrian Army (FSA). This assistance mainly consists of providing arms and weapons as well as money to buy ammo at the black market.

Local activists report that in late March – early April the contacts have intensified between the Israeli intelligence officers and the representatives of the Syrian armed groups acting in the area of Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. The Israelis handed over to the militants some bags, boxes and cases, contents unknown, probably ammunitions, medicine and food rations.

We may propose it was the next batch of the so-called help to the Syrian militants controlled by Israel. Tel Aviv, thus, seeks to maximize the support in order to get them ready for an offensive of the Syrian troops and Lebanese Hezbollah in the south of al-Quneitra Governorate.

Obviously, by supplying opposition groups in southern Syria, Israel aims to block and sabotage not only the peaceful settlement of the conflict but also the demilitarization of the Syrian-Israeli border in the Golan Heights in accordance with Agreement on Disengagement between Israel and Syria.

German Resistance Continues: 6 Attacks per Day on Invader Centers in 2017


There were 2,219 attacks upon invader centers in Germany during 2017, an average of six per day, figures released by the Interior Ministry have claimed.

More than 300 invaders were injured in the incidents, which included “bodily harm, property damage, defamation, hate speech, trespassing, arson and causing an explosion,” the government said.

The German government’s Turkish-origin Federal Integration Commissioner Aydan Izoguz described as the attacks as “shameful” and said that the number of incidents was “frighteningly high.”

In addition, it has been claimed that there have been 180 attacks on refugee helpers, and 950 attacks on mosques.n

It has become standard practice for the controlled media in Germany not to give any coverage to such attacks for fear of encouraging the resistance, and statisics such as the latest ones usually only emerge after parliamentary questions are raised.

In Berlin, police reported 234 attacks, including bomb attacks and shootings at invader centers.

Meanwhile, in the city of Freital, Saxony, seven Germans, including one woman, were sentenced to between four and ten years in prison for “forming a terrorist organization, launching bomb attacks and attempted murder.”

According to the court case, the group carried out attacks on invader centers in the Dresden area, bombed a car belonging to the “reformed” Communist Die Linke party city councilor, and also blew up a Die Linke party office.

Invasion of Europe Continues: 53,175 “Asylum” Applications in January 2018


Nonwhite invaders pretending to be refugees lodged 53,175 “asylum” applications in the first four weeks of January 2018 alone, while another 14,601 landed in Europe during the first ten weeks of 2018, new official figures show.

According to data released by the United Nations’ “International Organization for Migration” (IOM), 14,601 “arrivals” were registered to Europe from January 1, 2018 to March 10, 2018,

Of this number, 12,318 nonwhites had invaded Europe by sea, and 2,283 by land.

In 2017, at least 186,768 nonwhites invaded Europe in this manner, and in 2016, the figure was 390,432.

The IOM said that the main nationalities of arrivals (in descendant order) were as follows:

To Italy: Eritrea, Tunisia, Pakistan, Nigeria, Libya, and Cote d’Ivoire.

To Greece: Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Republic of the Congo, Cameroon, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

To Spain: Morocco, Algeria, Guinea, Cote d’Ivoire, Gambia, and Syria.

To Bulgaria: Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and Pakistan.

However, the invader numbers do not tally with the total number of “asylum” applications, indicating that an even larger number of nonwhites are invading Europe through routes other than those indicated by the IOM.

According to figures released by the EU’s European Asylum Support Office (EASO), in January 2018, at least 53,175 “asylum applications” were lodged in EU.

This represents an increase of eight percent compared to the previous month, but only a 13 percent decline compared to a year ago in January 2017.

Part—but not all—of the difference in the totals is explained by the fact that one in 10 applicants “had already lodged an application previously in the same EU+ country, and so the overall number of repeated applications was 5 282,” the EASO report said.

At least three percent of all applications came from nonwhites claiming to be “unaccompanied minors,” (UAM), with most being from Afghanistan (11 percent of all UAM applications), Eritrea (10 percent) and The Gambia (8 percent).

In particular, about one fifth of all applicants from The Gambia claimed to be UAMs.

In January 2018, the largest groups of invaders claimed to be from Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan. Together with Nigeria and Pakistan, these citizenships jointly accounted for a third of all applications for international protection lodged in the EU in January 2018.

Georgia, Eritrea, Iran, Albania and Bangladesh completed the list of the 10 most common citizenships of origin.

At the end of January 2018, there were 447,306 “asylum” applications awaiting a decision in first instance.
