David discusses Shaken Baby Syndrome with “Mary” (not her real name) whose daughter-in-law served 2 years in jail for manslaughter when a Shaken Baby conviction was rammed through, ignoring evidence that the dead baby’s mother was far from a perfect caregiver, and ignoring the possibility of any medical crisis (such as an adverse reaction to a vaccine or medication). Unfortunately, this is not an isolated case, and some caregivers have been punished much more stringently. Yet science is slowly realizing that this syndrome is probably completely imaginary, and that babies that die without external evidence of abuse probably did not die of abuse.
David discusses the diet of indigenous people on the prairies before and after the invasion of Europeans with Philip Brass, a member of Peepeekisis First Nation in Saskatchewan, who works on community health, local food initiatives, traditional practices, and ceremonies. They discuss the reasons why the health of so many indigenous Canadians is worse than average. They delve into the history of colonization including forced removal to reserves, the old pass system that prevented them leaving the reserve, and the residential schools What are the challenges to reclaiming the indigenous knowledge about local foods for nutrition and for medicine?
David talks with Terry Michael, a gay man and journalist, about Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis, known as PrEP. People at-so-called-risk for HIV infection, mainly gay men and black men and women, are supposed to take these toxic medications for life. This has a lot of problems, including the fact that not many healthy people are interested in taking drugs, especially if they know that organ failure is a side effect. Since Terry has worked in politics before, and describes himself as a libertarian Democrat, they also discuss recent political events.

David has a long and wide-ranging conversation with Celia Farber who, as a journalist for many years, has addressed many controversial topics. The ‘media’, Donald Trump, the Clintons, O.J. Simpson, Immigration, Globalism, Healthcare, Sweden, Sexual Assault, Vaccines, Julian Assange and more. Despite deep political differences, Celia and David avoid extremetizing. And if you want to know what that means, you will have to listen. Celia’s blog is ‘The Truth Barrier’: http://truthbarrier.com
Recently an Ebola vaccina trial was published with an incredible result — none of the people who were vaccinated came down with Ebola, while quite a few unvaccinated people did. David dissects this trial and by the time he’s finished there’s nothing but a bloody mess left on the floor. The trial is a scientific disaster, sound and fury signifying nothing. You can read the paper from Lancet at: http://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(16)32621-6/fulltext
David interviews James Lyons-Weiler, author of the book, “The Environmental and Genetic Causes of Autism”. His research indicates that genes can cause greater susceptibility to environmental toxins, such as the mercury and aluminum found in some vaccines, but that genes alone cannot explain the recent explosion in the rate of autism. This interview is part 1 of 2. His blog is at http://jameslyonsweiler.com.
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.
David speaks with retired professor Bruce Alexander about addiction. Like former guest Marc Lewis, Alexander also believes that addiction is not a disease, and certainly can’t be fought with a war. His recent book calls it a “poverty of spirit” but, rather than blaming the victim he believes society as a whole is responsible for creating these conditions. He does …
