David interviews Justin Trottier of the Canadian Centre for Men and Families (CAFE), about support for men, most controversially for men who are victims of domestic violence, either at the hands of a woman, or a gay male partner. There are many shelters for abused women but, in Toronto, there is not yet a shelter for men (let alone their children), but that is about to change if Justin’s organization is successful in their fundraising. Although some women’s organizations have been very negative about this work, others are quietly working with his organization, recognizing that sometimes men need support for what have traditionally been seen as women’s problems.

David talks about the free speech kerfuffle in Canada where merely showing a debate about non-binary-gender pronouns resulted in a teaching assistant at Laurier University being dragged into an interrogation worthy of the gestapo. David asks if there is a middle ground on this issue, between everyone choosing their own pronoun, and sticking with just ‘he’ and ‘she’. Following that, David reviews the book “Crash Override” which touches on issues of sexual harassment and gender. And finally, some thoughts on the current wave of sexual harassment allegations.

David doesn’t interview Jim West, as much as have a discussion with him. Jim is claiming that the cause of microcephaly in Brazil was not Zika, or pesticides, or vaccines, but an increase in the rate of prenatal ultrasounds, mostly from a new telemedicine network called, “The Network”, that remotely provided interpretation of ultrasounds. But what is the definition of microcephaly and are all smaller than normal heads indicative of future problems in the baby? Can we be sure that the so called epidemic just wasn’t an epidemic of measurements? Also, head measurements might be used as a surrogate for overall growth, but will be used to diagnose microcephaly instead of overall growth problems. Perhaps the fundamental question is when medicine introduces a new technique, whether a new vaccine or a new machine, how do we know if it’s causing problems?

David talks with film makers Joan Shenton and Andi Reiss about their new three part series on the impact of the HPV vaccine, Sacrificial Virgins. The film, despite each part being only 10 minutes long, covers the devastating health impacts some girls have experienced after the vaccine, and the scientific flaws that make this vaccine particularly dangerous. The films interview girls and young women whose physical lives have been destroyed by the vaccine, as well as leading scientific critics of the theory that HPV causes cervical cancer, or the presence of Aluminum in novel forms as an adjuvant in these vaccines.

The three parts of Sacrificial Virgins can be viewed on the website: http://www.sacrificialvirgins.org

In episode 161, David talks with Toni Krehel, a Chinese medical doctor in Florida, and an advocate for the right to refuse vaccination. While Florida requires a medical or religious exemption for school children to refuse vaccination, some universities and colleges had been insisting on  vaccination, and would not accept exemptions. In reality, there are no laws that given these educational institutions this right and, when challenged, they backed down, and they will now accept students who do not wish to be vaccinated, and may have been unvaccinated since birth. Obviously the vaccine industry is reloading, but for now there is sunshine in Florida.

David interview Greg Lovett, maker of a documentary on the burn pits, “Delay, Deny, Hope you Die”, so named because they were where garbage from US military bases in Iraq and elsewhere was burned using jet fuel, generating a putrid cloud of black, toxic smoke from incomplete combustion. This was particularly bad on bases sited on former Iraqi chemical weapon facilities. Because many of the health problems in these veterans, such as cancer, develop years after returning home, they don’t easily get compensation or health care from their government. Why was garbage disposed of in such a dangerous fashion? Was it incompetence, callousness, corruption, greed, or some combination?

David talks with University of British Columbia professor Chris Shaw about a paper on vaccines, aluminum and autism that was just withdrawn. While this has been characterized as an action against “vaccine denialism”, the reasons are quite different, and the research will be performed again. After this interview David reviews attempts by both the left and right in America and elsewhere to restrict free speech. And then he talks about Harvey Weinstein and other men who use their power to abuse women. Not a new phenomenon.

In Episode 158 David discusses workplace causes of cancer with Paul Demers, director of the Occupational Cancer Research Centre in Toronto, Canada, based on a recently released report. His concerns range from asbestos, silica, wood dust, volatile chemicals, nanomaterials and even chemotherapy drugs. Apart from chemicals there are associations with shift work and sedentary occupations with increased risk for cancer. Although the report’s statistics are limited mainly to Ontario, Canada, the general risks apply to any industrialized country.

Triggered by the Las Vegas massacre David addresses the need for gun control (not gun abolition) in the United States, which should annoy US conservatives. And he sides with Betsy DeVos over the problems with Title IX investigations into sexual assault, which have led to several successful lawsuits by men expelled from universities without receiving anything close to due process, which should annoy US liberals.

On January 14, 2016 Dr. Sin Hang Lee, an experienced pathologist, wrote to the Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO) complaining about what he described as the corrupt approval of the HPV vaccine. In episode 156, David discusses with Dr. Lee, his concerns that the unique formulation of the HPV vaccine, which has aluminum bound to viral DNA, is the cause of the 2.3% rate of serious adverse events in recipients of the vaccine. He discusses how the medical community focuses on denying these events in order to secure pharmaceutical profits by exaggeration, ignoring awkward facts, or outright lying.
