David talks with British GP Malcolm Kendrick about the many myths of modern medicine, starting with the cholesterol myth and the recommendation for a low fat diet. Later the conversation veers into other myths that allopathic medicine promulgates but that Kendrick opposes.
In the second and concluding part of the discussion regarding the death of David Stephan’s son Ezekiel, he discusses the trial, and particularly the reasons why health authorities might want to go after him, a parent who doesn’t vaccinate, and the son of a man whose health supplement company won a war with Health Canada once it was shown to have benefits in people with psychiatric conditions often treated with pharmaceutical drugs.
David Crowe interviews David Stephan, whose second child Ezekiel died in 2012. David, and his wife Collet, were charged with the death, and were eventually convicted of “failing to provide the necessities of life”. David Stephan explains why they are appealing this conviction, through describing the last few weeks of his son’s life, up to the point at which the ambulance and hospitals took charge of the boy. Part 2 of this discussion will describe Ezekiel’s death in hospital, the subsequent court hearings and the ongoing appeal, and the possible reasons why the government and medical treatment system of the Province of Alberta was so anxious to blame the parents for this unfortunate death.

This head butting is centered at the University of Toronto, in Canada. David talks with Lee Airton, who has a blog, http://theyismypronoun.com, that discusses why they have chosen ‘they’. While some people have taken rigid, opposing extremes on this issue, it does appear that there is a middle ground.

In episode 118, David interviews James Ottar Grundvig, author of “Master Manipulator”. The subject of his book is Poul Thorsen, both a critical player in the CDC’s whitewashing of the nercury-containing thimerosal preservative in vaccines, and a fugitive from justice. Yet, despite stealing research funds from the CDC, and despite FBI charges, nobody seems to want to find Thorsen, who is still working at a hospital in Denmark. It is not just him, Grundvig also identifies other Master Manipulators involved with the CDC’s frauds.
