Jill Richardson – A Healthy Way to Build Communities

Infectious Myth – Vaccination Policy in the UK with Christina England – 01.12.16

In Episode 85 David discusses with Christina England, the findings of her book entitled, “Vaccination Policy and the UK Government: The Untold Truth” which she co-authored with University of British Columbia Senior Research Fellow Lucija Tomljenovic
This interview, drawing on the materials in the book, describes how serious vaccine adverse events, especially death, have often been blamed on parents in England, often using the concept of “Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy” with Christina England (Shaken Baby Syndrome is also discussed in her new book book). Parents are accused of either imaging the symptoms in their child, or of creating them by abuse or poisoning. Christine describes how these ideas were promoted by prominent doctors Roy Meadows, who invented the term Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy, and also David Southall, and these ideas are still current, despite serious findings by medical institutions against both and many reversals of criminal convictions. She also describes how people fought back, including herself and psychologist Lisa Blakemore-Brown. Despite progress, many parents and other caregivers are still in jail, some serving life without parole, despite the fact that others were eventually released.

It’s hugely regressive: 52 percent of the benefit goes to the richest 10 percent of Americans, and only 0.1 percent of the benefit goes to the poorest 20 percent.
