NIH Announces Public-Access Policy

By Jocelyn Kaiser. ScienceNOW Daily News, Jan. 11, 2008. "Starting in April, most U.S. biomedical scientists will have to send copies of their accepted, peer-reviewed manuscripts to the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) for posting in a free archive. If they don't, they could have trouble renewing their grants or even lose research funding. That's the gist of NIH's announcement today describing how it will carry out a new "public access" mandate. The directive, touted as a way to disseminate results of taxpayer-funded research, was part of an NIH spending law passed by Congress in December. It makes mandatory a policy in effect since May 2005 that requests that NIH-funded investigators submit accepted manuscripts to NIH, which posts the full text in its free PubMed Central archive no more than 12 months after the article is published in a journal. Most grantees have ignored the request: Of roughly 65,000 eligible articles per year, only about 12% are being submitted by authors, says David Lipman of NIH's National Library of Medicine in Bethesda, Maryland." Now, if only Science would allow more public access.

The Alliance for Taxpayer Access

"A diverse and growing alliance of organizations representing taxpayers, patients, physicians, researchers, and institutions that support open public access to taxpayer-funded research. Statement of Principles: 1. American taxpayers are entitled to open access on the Internet to the peer-reviewed scientific articles on research funded by the U.S. Government. 2. Widespread access to the information contained in these articles is an essential, inseparable component of our nation's investment in science. 3. This and other scientific information should be shared in cost-effective ways that take advantage of the Internet, stimulate further discovery and innovation, and advance the translation of this knowledge into public benefits. 4. Enhanced access to and expanded sharing of information will lead to usage by millions of scientists, professionals, and individuals, and will deliver an accelerated return on the taxpayers' investment."

Unfortunately, there are some bad apples on the editorial board of PLoS-Medicine (defined as those who have authored anti-tobacco studies which ignore the role of infection.) These include:

Hans-Olav Adami

Adami is a co-author of "Cigarette smoking and non-Hodgkins lymphoma -- a population-based case-control study;" also "Tobacco use and cancer causation," and similar quacky screeds. They igmore the fact that Hodgkin's Disease is associated with Epstein-Barr virus infection, which occurs earlier as well as more frequently in the lower socioeconomic classes, of which smokers are more likely to belong. Adami's latest (9-09-05) is "Causality in Cancer Epidemiology. Eur J Epidemiol 2005;20(7):565-574," co-authored with another bad apple, Dimitrios Trichopoulos, with whom he has often collaborated. They are among the last people who are entitled to make pronouncements about causality!

PLoS Medicine Censors Dissent and Protects Scientific Fraud!

PLoS Medicine published a piece of specious anti-smoker propaganda, which claimed that "The tobacco industry has worked hard to try and influence public perceptions about the risks of smoking and the risk of inhaling secondhand smoke (passive smoking). The industry has used a variety of tactics to downplay the health hazards of smoking or inhaling secondhand smoke—two examples are publishing articles casting doubts about the health hazards of tobacco and funding research that is biased toward giving pro-industry results." ("A Good Personal Scientific Relationship": Philip Morris Scientists and the Chulabhorn Research Institute, Bangkok. By Ross MacKenzie and Jeff Collin. PLoS Med 2008 Dec 23;5(12):e238.)

MacKenzie and Collin / PLoS Med 2008 full article

PLoS Med refused to publish my response pointing out that - "The anti-smokers are guilty of flagrant scientific fraud for ignoring more than 50 studies, which show that human papillomaviruses cause over ten times more lung cancers than they pretend are caused by secondhand smoke. Passive smokers are more likely to have been exposed to this virus, so the anti-smokers' studies, because they are all based on nothing but lifestyle questionnaires, have been cynically DESIGNED to falsely blame passive smoking for all those extra lung cancers that are really caused by HPV."

http://www.smokershistory.com/hpvlungc.htm

"The anti-smokers have committed the same type of fraud with every disease they blame on smoking and passive smoking, as well as ignoring other types of evidence that proves they are lying, such as the fact that the death rates from asthma have more than doubled since their movement began."

http://www.smokershistory.com/newviews.htm

And that furthermore, Philip Morris has never challenged the anti-smokers' scientific frauds.

PLoS Ignores Anti-Smoker Conflicts of Interest

Competing Interests of Glantz Must Be Declared
Posted by plosmedicine on 29 Apr 2009 at 13:42 GMT
Author of comment: Pam Parker, transamgranny@wideopenwest.com

This comment was sent by email to the PLoS Medicine staff.

Comment:

Within this article by Lightwood, Dinno and Glantz is the statement "The authors have declared that no competing interests exist." Furthermore, "No competing interests declared" is stated in two reader responses by Glantz even after earlier reader responses pointed out the fact that the authors should have declared their competing interests. Is it not PLoS Medicine's policy to disclose competing interests?

University of California, San Francisco has received at least $36,233,049 in grants from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF). UCSF School of Medicine has received $15,299,103 of the 36 million dollars. Tobacco related grants total $12,019,701. Professor Glantz is listed as the contact person for grants totaling $1,577,819. Steven Schroeder, former President of RWJF (July 1990-December 2002) returned to UCSF, School of Medicine to head the new Leadership Center for Smoking Cessation funded with $10,000,000 in grants from RWJF(1). Grant #024783 in the amount of $280,517(2), was concluded by author Lisa A. Bero, Ph.D. that: "Source of Research Funding Influences Studies on Health Effects of Environmental Tobacco Smoke". Professor Glantz was a 2000 recipient of a RWJF award "Innovators Combating Substance Abuse(3)" which is accompanied by a $300,000 grant(4). In addition, Glantz and UCSF have received $15,000,000 in combined gift, endowment and grant from the American Legacy Foundation (ALF) for the creation and continued funding of the Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education and the Legacy Tobacco Documents Library(5). In August 2007 the ALF also provided funding for Glantz's faculty position as the UCSF American Legacy Foundation Distinguished Professor of Tobacco Control(6). It is my opinion that Glantz and UCSF stand to gain vast amounts of future tobacco control grants from RWJF and ALF because articles like those he published in the AJPH and PLoS Medicine.

Public Health policies are being made as a result of these studies. State and Federal laws are created as a result. Worse yet, Public Health fails to protect those who depend on non-biased reporting. It does science a grave injustice. Further there should be, at the very least, journalistic ramifications for not disclosing competing interests, especially when these findings are used to validate laws and create policies. I believe grants, such as the ones listed above, are competing interests and that authors who fail to disclose their competing interests should be suspended from publishing in these journals. Because of the Internet, it is now possible to easily investigate, verify, and publish competing interests. Those journals that do not disclose the obvious competing interests of authors will soon lose credibility over the issue of competing interest disclosures.

This is an excellent, well-documented comment. However, this is still just an individual conflict-of-interest story, and not evidence that the pharmaceutical companies' desire for profits are the force behind the anti-smoking movement.

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is really an IDEOLOGICAL organization, whose goal is to push totalitarian public policies based on Nazi pseudo-science. It is fundamentally a PARASITE on the company, not an essential driver of its profits. Notice that none of the other companies have an equivalent of The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation!

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation actually represents the goals of the anti-scientific SOCIALITE LOBBY, not the financial interests of the company or the industry. The company is merely a host of the parasite. And, while the company has to meet stringent scientific requirements which satisfy the FDA in order to market its products, the anti-scientific mentality the Foundation promotes does not. THE ALL-POWERFUL SOCIALITE LOBBY, which consists in large part of filthy-rich people who are not engaged in business (or for that matter, working at all except at managing the people who manage their money), are the ones who push scientific fraud. This includes the Johnson family themselves.

They are the ones who support those studies based on nothing but lifestyle questionnaires, which ignore the role of infection. They are ones who want to falsely blame smoking, and to lie to the public that most of their health problems are because they didn't their eat their magic fruits and vegetables and exercise. What these people want is not to sell drugs, but to create a gigantic tax-funded edifice of totalitarian control over every detail of our personal lives, all based on Nazi pseudo-science. These are the people who control the politicians, AND the corporations.

And the stupid people who point their fingers at the pharmaceutical companies are HELPING THE SOCIALITE LOBBY by distracting attention from it - not to mention that most of these people actually believe in the Socialite Lobby's worthless bilge and try to shove it down our throats at every opportunity!

Vindication of Conspiracy Theory

American Pravda: How the CIA Invented "Conspiracy Theories." Br Ron Unz. Sep. 5, 2016. "[F]or nearly my entire life, I always automatically dismissed all of the so-called “conspiracy theories” as ridiculous, never once even considering that any of them might possibly be true... But I had always assumed that even if government failed in its investigatory role, the dedicated bloodhounds of the Fourth Estate would invariably come through, tirelessly seeking truth, ratings, and Pulitzers. However, once I gradually began realizing that the media was merely “Our American Pravda” and perhaps had been so for decades, I suddenly recognized the flaw in my logic. If those five—or ten or twenty or fifty—initial clues were simply ignored by the media, whether through laziness, incompetence, or much less venal sins, then there would be absolutely nothing to prevent successful conspiracies from taking place and remaining undetected, perhaps even the most blatant and careless ones."

Conspiracy theory as Naive Deconstructive History, by Floyd Rudmin. New Democracy, April 2003. "'Conspiracy theory' is usually used as a pejorative label, meaning paranoid, nutty, marginal, and certainly untrue. The power of this pejorative is that it discounts a theory by attacking the motivations and mental competence of those who advocate the theory. By labeling an explanation of events 'conspiracy theory,' evidence and argument are dismissed because they come from a mentally or morally deficient personality, not because they have been shown to be incorrect. Calling an explanation of events 'conspiracy theory' means, in effect, 'We don't like you, and no one should listen to your explanation.' ...Conspiracy theory will certainly be a growth industry for the foreseeable future. Conspiracy theory will decrease when conspiracies decrease and when journalists and historians increase their efforts to explain events rather than explain them away."

Mind Control by Electromagnetic Fields

"Humans restrain self-interest with moral and social values. They are the only species known to exhibit reciprocal fairness, which implies the punishment of other individuals' unfair behaviors, even if it hurts the punisher's economic self-interest. Reciprocal fairness has been demonstrated in the Ultimatum Game, where players often reject their bargaining partner's unfair offers... Here we show that disruption of the right, but not the left, dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) by low-frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) substantially reduces subjects' willingness to reject their partners' intentionally unfair offers, which suggests that subjects are less able to resist the economic temptation to accept these offers. Importantly, however, subjects still judge such offers as very unfair, which indicates that the right DLPFC plays a key role in the implementation of fairness-related behaviors." (Diminishing Reciprocal Fairness by Disrupting the Right Prefrontal Cortex. D Knoch, A Pascual-Leone, K Meyer, V Treyer, E Fehr. Science 2006 Nov 3;314(5800):829-832.) Is this how the anti-smokers shove their unjust laws and exorbitant tax increases down the country's throat?

A Note on the CFR

Numerous important agents of the Lasker Syndicate are members of the CFR. According to the Public Interest Research Group: "The Council on Foreign Relations has been the most powerful private organization in U.S. foreign policy since it began in 1921. While priding itself on non-partisanship and on recent efforts to recruit minorities, women and youth (under 35), CFR's 3,400 members mainly reflect the resources needed by the ruling class to maintain their power. Don't call them if you want to join; they call you. And don't wait for a call unless you have big money, national security expertise, CIA experience, a political constituency, or clout with the media."

Ralph Moss has exposed ACS racketeering in cancer treatment in his book, "The Cancer Industry"

Ralph Moss - "The Cancer Industry"

His chapter on Livingston and the cancer microbe is also interesting. Here are some details not noted by Moss. Livingston said that cancer was caused by a microorganism which she named Progenitor cryptocides. Some anonymous author(s) in the health establishment claim that "Careful research using modern techniques, however, has shown that there is no such organism and that Livingston-Wheeler has apparently mistaken several different types of bacteria, both rare and common, for a unique microbe. In spite of diligent research to isolate a cancer-causing microorganism, none has been found" (Livingston-Wheeler therapy. CA Cancer J Clin 1990 Mar-Apr;40(2):103-108; and CA Cancer J Clin 1991 May-Jun;41(3):A7-A12). It should be remembered that much of the health establishment of that time denied even that Helicobacter pylori caused duodenal ulcers, for example. And it would be nice if some of this "diligent research" had been published. A search of PubMed under "Progenitor cryptocides" turned up only five articles, including those two (which appear to be duplicates).

"Just ignore them, because we want to blame smoking and lifestyle instead!"

"But what about gays and HIV?"

"Oh, they're Politically Correct. Leave their lifestyle alone."

That's how the health fascists' so-called science works. It's so totally, flagrantly corrupt that in real life they aren't even that open and honest about it, they just silently agree to pretend that those kind of studies don't exist.

Ten Times More Smokers Than Gays

"In surveys conducted in 2002 and 2011, pollsters at Gallup found that members of the American public massively overestimated how many people are gay or lesbian. In 2002, a quarter of those surveyed guessed upwards of a quarter of Americans were gay or lesbian (or 'homosexual,' the third option given). By 2011, that misperception had only grown, with more than a third of those surveyed now guessing that more than 25 percent of Americans are gay or lesbian. Women and young adults were most likely to provide high estimates, approximating that 30 percent of the population is gay. Overall, 'U.S. adults, on average, estimate that 25 percent of Americans are gay or lesbian,' Gallup found. Only 4 percent of all those surveyed in 2011 and about 8 percent of those surveyed in 2002 correctly guessed that fewer than 5 percent of Americans identify as gay or lesbian."

"Contemporary research in a less homophobic environment has counterintuitively resulted in lower estimates rather than higher ones. The Williams Institute at UCLA School of Law, a gay and lesbian think tank, released a study in April 2011 estimating based on its research that just 1.7 percent of Americans between 18 and 44 identify as gay or lesbian, while another 1.8 percent -- predominantly women -- identify as bisexual." And, "A Centers for Disease Control and Prevention survey of women between 22 and 44 that questioned more than 13,500 respondents between 2006 and 2008 found very similar numbers: Only 1 percent of the women identified themselves as gay, while 4 percent identified as bisexual." The author adds that "One thing's for sure: it's hard to imagine the fact that so many think the country is more than a quarter gay or lesbian has no impact on our public policy." (Americans Have No Idea How Few Gay People There Are. By Garance Franke-Ruta. The Atlantic, May 31, 2012.)

Franke-Ruta 2012 / The Atlantic

The U.S. population over 18 years old is about 234 million. 1.7% of these equals about 4 million gays. Meanwhile, at least 19.3% of people over 18 are current smokers, which would be 44.5 million (Smoking & Tobacco Use. CDC Nov. 15, 2012). And this estimate is much more likely to be low, due to the very real persecution of smokers.

Why do gays have so much political power, in stark contrast to both their numbers and supposedly oppressed status, while ten times more smokers have none? I can tell you another thing for sure: it has nothing whatsoever to do with democratic representation, and everything to do with the favoritism of the ruling oligarchy. It conclusively shows how this oligarchy controls the mass media absolutely, and uses it to lie to the rest of us in order to foist their own agenda on everyone.

"The fastest way to convince straights that homosexuality is commonplace is to get a lot of people talking about the subject in a neutral supportive way. Open, frank talk makes gayness seem less furtive, alien, and sinful more aboveboard. Constant talk builds the impression that public opinion is at least divided on the subject, and that a sizable block -- the most modern, up-to-date citizens -- accept or even practice homosexuality... The main thing is to talk about gayness until the issue becomes thoroughly tiresome." (Hunter Madsen and Marshall Kirk. Strategy: Persuasion, Not Invasion, from Chapter 3 of After the Ball (1989). In: We Are Everywhere: A Historical Sourcebook of Gay and Lesbian Politics. By Mark Blasius and Shane Phelan.)

Madsen & Kirk, 1989 - We Are Everywhere / Google Books

This is Madsen and Kirk's first step of "desensitization." Their next step, "jamming," is public smearing of anyone who opposes their agenda, to intimidate both the target and any potential supporters into silence. We've seen all these things before -- the anti-smokers engaged in these tactics for decades before Kirk and Madsen came along, except they used them for the opposite purpose, to demonize and ostracize smokers and bully them into quitting. And a key point is that it was not accomplished solely, primarily, or even in large part by efforts from the 4 million -- not when the efforts arising from more than 50 million smokers to defend themselves have come to nothing, and this despite the supposed omnipotence of the tobacco companies! Kirk and Madsen wrote, "We mean conversion of the average American's emotions, mind and will, through a planned psychological attack, in the form of propaganda fed to the nation through the media" (After the Ball, p. 153). And unlike with smokers, somehow their wish is the mass media's command! Surely it helps that Kirk and Madsen both graduated from Harvard, whose School of Public Health concocted the pseudo-science of anti-smoking, and whose departments of Law and Economics engineered both RomneyCare and ObamaCare and foisted it on the country!

Just for laughs

Smokes on a Plane

By Torquemeda

I've decided to make my first movie. It's about human endurance being pushed to the brink, I'm going to call it "Smokes on a Plane."

It's going to start out with the main characters, Johnny Depp and Samuel Jackson catching a flight from Hawaii to California. Both men are cops escorting Catherine Zeta Jones to court in California where she is wanted on charges of smoking in public in Santa Monica. When they arrive at the airport they see non-smoking signs everywhere. Every couple of minutes the airport loudspeaker announces "This is a smoke-free airport!"

All three main character's lighters are taken at the security checkpoint. When they get on the plane the "no smoking" lights come on. The pilot makes an announcement about the flight and reminds everyone that there is no smoking on the plane. The flight attendants go through the demonstration of what to do in case of an emergency and after finishing, remind everyone that smoking is prohibited on the flight.

As the plane starts down the runway the pilot makes an announcement about the ETA and reminds everyone that the "No Smoking" lights are on.

Our main characters also didn't count on one thing: Turns out the WHO World Health Conference's next stop after Hawaii is California. So seated all around them are such notable names as Michael Bloomberg, Mike Huckabee, Bill and Hilary Clinton, Woody Harrelson, Richard Carmona, Senator Deborah Ortiz, the presidents of MADD, DARE and Tobacco Free Kids the idiot with the megaphone in all those "The Truth" commercials and for the token "Fat Guy" Michael Moore.

After having to listen to Bloomberg explain to Huckabee about the 171 million he has donated for anti-smoking propaganda, hearing the guy from "The Truth" berate a guy with a Marlboro bag, Deborah Ortiz's remark about how all children should be protected from SHS and Bill Clinton remarking how'd he'd like to see if she smoked after sex and Hilary smacking him, our three heroes decide to watch the in-flight movie.

Turns out the in-flight movie is "The Insider" starring Russell Crowe.

After a while the plane encounters some heavy turbulence. The pilot gets on the intercom and tells everyone all is well, reminding them the "No Smoking" light is still on and this includes the bathrooms.

Turns out the plane has to make an emergency landing in Sacremento and they have to switch flights. (Yeah, I know, it got blown off-course.) Upon arriving in Sacremento our three heroes are greeted by a banner that says, "Welcome to California, America's No Smoking Section!"

When they board the next plane to Los Angeles they are once again reminded that there is no smoking, twice before take-off and once after. Then they are reminded the "No Smoking" lights are on.

Carmona states that all people should stay away from smokers.

Samuel Jackson says, "Enough is enough! I have had it with these motherfucking snakes on this motherfucking plane!"

With that he gives Cathreine Zeta Jones a gun as Johnny Depp unholsters his and our heroes take rightful retribution on the villians complete with cliched one liners.

"BO'ing for Columbine!" Zeta Jones says while shoving Huckabee's face into an unwashed Michael Moore armpit, then "Balling for Columbine!" after shooting Moore in the testes.

Depp shoves the Truth guy's mega-phone up Carmona's ass while adding, "Since this is the only part of your body you talk out of, here!"

Before Jackson shoots Bloomberg, "Royale asshole with cheese...and a bullet."

This continues until all the villians are gone.

Finally our heroes hijak the plane to China because they want to live in a country more respectful of their freedoms.

The Reptilian Connection

"The Rothschilds, Rockefellers, the British royal family, and the ruling political and economic families of the US and the rest of the world come from these same bloodlines [of reptilians from the constellation Draco]. This is why the so-called Eastern Establishment families of the United States interbreed with each other as obsessively as the European royal and 'noble' families have always done. And similar families across the world. It is not because of snobbery, it is to hold as best they can a genetic structure -- the reptilian-mammalian DNA combination which allows them to 'shape shift'... To hold their human form, these entities need to drink human (mammalian) blood..." The blood of babies and small children is supposed to be the most effective.
