Dick Ablin, a cancer researcher specializing in cryoimmunotherapy, discovered PSA, the Prostate Specific Antigen, in the 1970s. So he must love Movember, when men are encouraged to line up for PSA and other prostate screening, right? Wrong, in 2010 he wrote a New York Times Op-Ed decrying not only the use of  PSA, but all prostate cancer screening. In 2014 he published a book, “The Great Prostate Hoax” and, in 2018, he was interviewed, at the end of Movember (let’s  hope it’s the end), by David.

According to Jacob Stegenga, a Cambridge lecturer in philosophy of science, and author of the recent book, ‘Medical Nihilism’, many pharmaceutical interventions have a thin theoretical and evidentiary basis. He discusses this with David, including how pharmaceutical companies can manipulate science, especially controlled trials, to get their drugs approved, even if they are useless or worse.

Mary Holland has been a law professor at the NYU School of law since 2004. Focussing on human rights and health law, when she, and some co-authors, put the HPV vaccine on trial, they found it guilty of a lot of crimes. These included using a false placebo, lying about the contents of the placebo, lying about the (lack of) previous safety testing, and more. And health authorities like CDC, WHO and the European Medicines Agency are just as guilty for approving and promoting the vaccine. The discussion with David just touches a few of the important issues raised by her book, “The HPV Vaccine on Trial: Seeking Justice for a Generation Betrayed”. Listen, and you will probably want to get the book.
