I know.

What's it matter?  The UK are currently going to hell in a handcart driven by a T1 - so John Laurie was perfectly correct - we certainly are all doomed.

No point under the circs of me bothering to be annoyed about anything, is there?

it depends how you look at it Sedge.  I agree about what’s going on in the U.K. but it is serious that anyone who queries anyone who disagrees with faulty “scientific” research is able to delete them from Wikipedia just like that.

I was hoping Patti that my sarcasm would show through.

The whole caboodle seems like it's completely out of the general public's control, whereas in the past I have always felt we had channels open to us to 'get at' a problem, if we didn't know what it was, there were avenues open to ask for most things.  Nobody at our level seems to be able to affect what is going on in the Government when even the MPs have been denied that privilege - let alone ruddy Wikipedia.

We normally NEVER discuss politics on the forum - something all the founder members here agreed on before we started - but it deeply affects how I feel about this issue as it happens.

OK I'll say in public that I voted to Remain, however distasteful I found the fact that in the first place only 72% of voters bothered to do so, hence the 52% that decided to Leave were only 37% of the voting public in the first place 'really' anyway and so the margin between Stay and Go is similarly eroded.  Hence to my mind as a normal person, I would always have thought a margin of X% would have been necessary to carry it either way.  After all - the Government had set that as a benchmark when they agreed to the 'Independence ' referendum in Scotland comparatively very recently.  However badly the whole caboodle was handled - I didn't like it one little bit but along with one helluva lot of folk who were Remainers, though not all of us, recognised PDQ that we were stuck with it, so we'd have to grow to like it.  After all normally when any vote goes the wrong way for you personally, it turns out that there are advantages the other way too, even if not for you personally.  The decision this time TBH should never have been personal - if I even remotely thought that I would lose out but that would then mean my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren should gain - then I'd live with myself better knowing I'd done the right thing.

Personally I've been quite unable to perceive any advantages for anybody here.

For God's sake - who the hell is going to pay the electric bill before the light at the end of the tunnel is completely switched off?

Sedge, this was not a political subject.  Whatever we think about Brexit the subject was about Dr Kendrick disagreeing with the consolidated view that cholesterol is caused by fat... and that causes CVD.  So some completely unknown and anonymous person can call him a quack and delete him from Wikipedia, simply because t his anonymous person does not agree with him.


 This isn’t right.

Well what can any of us do - or indeed anyone else - to change Wiki's rules?  If it annoys Malcom Kendrick then surely he will have to tackle it, or at least canvass his readers for support to challenge it?

If you have copyright on something and it comes to my attention that someone is breaching it - I have to start by telling you so you can instigate action.   Isn't this the same?


Does he want to challenge it?

The whole thing is far more sinister than an anonymous person wanting him off, if you read the comments after you'll see what I mean. Apparently he does know who it was & it's someone called M C Ellis in conjunction with the guy who runs Wiki (I forgot his name, Julian sombody) & Malcolm's not the only one either, anyone who has publicly denounced the whole statins/cholesterol thing is being removed. Very interesting & just a bit scary.

I'm not quite sure here.  I mean - sorry! - but who is it that thinks they control my (or anyone else's) own thought processes and powers of deduction?  And why do they imagine they can?

After all - 'our Malcolm' only presents his readers with HIS own thought processes and gives them (us) HIS reasons for HIS conclusions - exactly the same as any medical research projects anywhere in the world, ever.

WIKI has never been a resource on which to base one's life, and still isn't. 

I believe the Flat Earth society still exists too.

Look - yes - I am annoyed, if Wiki henceforth is not going to allow any alternative viewpoints to be aired other than let's call it 'conventional' wisdom - but of course if Big Brother no longer allows anyone to express an alternative viewpoint - discoveries like using ABs to treat H. Pylori will never be able to be discovered in future - let alone any totally new stuff like chemo drugs or treating T1 with manufactured insulin instead of from dead pigs and cattle.

We're all controlled to an extent by the powers that be who control the media, (they used to use religion but that doesn't work so well anymore) they've been doing it for many years. The people on here are luckily more open minded & willing to delve a little deeper then make up our own minds but don't be fooled they are still controlling a large percentage of the population.

luckily for us, many years ago,the majority of scientists and doctors who discovered 'stuff' were not easily financially 'persuaded' to turn away.
as people have got greedier over the decades and fame beckons, more and more 'professional' people have become corrupt.

the hippocratic oath needs scrapping, 'first, do no harm' seems wasted nowadays.

the billion dollar pharmas have a never ending supply of poorly people being born, living and dying. day in , day out,they create the drugs that  'make' us better.

if they could find a way of charging us for breathing, i'm sure they would.

us mere mortals, the 'poor' people of this planet have no comeback whatsoever against these huge money machines.

Dr K meanwhile it seems blames vegans. 

As I rely on something they don't subscribe to for my entire current existence (I presume they'd just curl up and die gladly if their T cells snuffed it) - I have to say, I am of the humble opinion that they must all be complete nutters - and I'm completely sane.

My analysis is that the lunatics really ARE trying to take over the asylum.

For whatever it is worth, American television is starting to resume advertising statins as being 'necessary' for good health.  Commercials between segments of the featured program are almost always about this or that new medicine, and most recently - especially in the evening - big pharma is doing a LOT of advertising.  Rather disgusting in my opinion.

In the UK, companies are not allowed to openly advertise drugs which are only available on prescription, so we don't get this.  However 99.9% of us know that Drug Co reps trawl round GP surgeries, clinic and hospitals talking about (and therefore, advertising) their products to medical staff.  For things we are expected to buy ourselves but there's no specific medical need for - eg foot cream for anyone with a bit of dry skin - they might leave a few free samples.  I had a couple of tubes of something the nurse happened to have in her cupboard a few months ago.  It's no better or worse than anything else I've bought - so I've not bothered to seek it out again.  If it was marvellous - I would - and I would have advertised it on here!

So, Kathy - serious question here - if you or the average US national wants some over the counter medical thing eg headache pills or a packet of sticking plasters - do you go to the shop and ask for the brand you remember cos the advert was on TV half an hour ago - or do you already know you only want paracetamol and look to see which brand the shop sells, with no unwanted add-ons like caffeine or codeine/Gorilla Glue and pick the cheapest one whether it's made by eg Walmart, or discard that and go for the more expensive pharma branded one on the advert?

Things that we may think of as being 'brand names' but are really just the same - sometimes aren't.  Those (ruddy) statins for instance.  I recently discovered (in an aside on some other subject by a retired GP on another forum replying to another person) that some types of statin 'cross the blood/brain barrier' and that both Atorvastatin and Simvastatin are two of those that do, apparently.  I'm not actually fussed whether Walmart or Smith Klein Glaxo make a thing - it's the ingredients (not just the 'active' one, ie the statin or the paracetamol or whatever it is) that MATTER, isn't it?
