You wrote: "the plural of anecdote is not evidence." [Ann Allergy Asthma

How true!

But your pretense is bothersome.

As you commented on "the science of complementary and alternative medicine

You pretended that most of conventional medicine is not CAM.

In fact most surgical behaviors in medicine *are* CAM - and criminal CAM at

See Criminal medical CAM at Hawai'i's John A Burns School of Medicine...

See also: Hospital beatings: Obstetrics is 'the service leader'

And see EMTs: 'Dangerous or perilous circumstances' (OB felonies)

I liked this part of your commentary best:

"Allergists and clinical immunologists need to become more knowledgeable
about CAM so that they can inform patients about the use and possible abuse
of these modalities."

Excellent point!

Clinical immunologists will want to become more knowledgeable about the fact
that medicine is mostly ANTI-immunization as it promotes itself as
pro-immunization - as it fraudulently promotes its vaccinations as being
100% effective - and endangers vaccinated children in the process.

What the heck am I talking about?

Here is something I recently wrote on the subject...

BC Skeptics had lied about me:

"Dr. Gastaldo believes that immunization is the cause of much suffering, and
therefore conventional medicine is an evil conspiracy...Aside from the
hyperbole, Gastaldo is a case study in antivax."

I replied...

The first clause of the first sentence is entirely false.

I believe that immunization is the cause of much *health and well-being*.

To the degree that vaccination causes immunization without serious short and
long-term side effects, I also believe this about vaccination.

It is conventional medicine that is substantially anti-immunization.

Call it "an evil conspiracy" or "just" the profit motive - there is NO
excuse for conventional medicine to be lying by omission to deny massive
numbers of babies massive numbers of free daily immunizations.

Conventional medicine is failing to tell the world that breastfeeding
involves women
automatically scanning their environments for pathogens and manufacturing
IMMUNIZATIONS which are then "injected" into babies DAILY.

What woman would fail to at least ATTEMPT to breastfeed after being informed
that she can IMMUNIZE her baby daily?

Conventional medicine is ignoring a simple way to make the breastfeeding
rate (the
IMMUNIZATION rate) skyrocket!

MDs - who are ostensibly "pro-immunization" are actually quite

The kicker is that breastfeeding reportedly helps MD-needle-vaccinations
work better!

DR. GASTALDO'S PET PEEVE: Obviously fraudulent vaccination promotion that
VACCINATED children....

MD-needle-vaccination is only ATTEMPTED
immunization - it sometimes fails. MDs in effect publicly pretend - in a
powerful way - that vaccinations are 100% effective - by saying
that only children exempted from vaccination need to be sent home/protected
during disease outbreaks. Since not all vaccinated children are immunized,
ALL children must be sent home/protected during disease outbreaks. MDs and
school systems need to start telling parents about this MD vaccination
promotion fraud.

END excerpt of Dr. Gastaldo's pet peeve (also: A Skeptic at Simon


Leonard, see the URLs above.

Conventional medicine is a massive criminal CAM enterprise. From knowingly
closing birth canals at birth to temporarily asphyxiating babies to rob them
of blood - to fraudulently promoting vaccinations as a way to make the
immunization rate skyrocket is ignored...

Conventional medicine needs to investigate its criminal CAM activity.

Thanks for reading.

Jeffrey and Silvano,

You published an article in the same issue of Ann Allergy Asthma Immunol...

Your article: Chiropractic care in asthma and allergy. Ann Allergy Asthma
Immunol. 2004 Aug;93(2 Suppl 1):S55-60...

....should have been titled chiropractic *SMT* in asthma and allergy.

You forgot to mention (in your abstract) the important fact that
chiropractic is far more than SMT (spinal manipulative therapy).

Chiropractic includes making NON-SPINAL (educational) adjustments.

Chiropractic includes - for example - adjusting medicine's frauds. (Of
course, medicine includes adjusting *chiropractic's* frauds; this is as it
should be.)

Medicine's lie of omission - which effectively denies massive numbers of
babies massive numbers of free daily immunizations (see above) - MAY be
causing some cases of asthma - some allergic diseases....

I call breastfeeding CHIROPRACTIC IMMUNIZATION - because MDs are failing to
tell the world that breastfeeding is immunization...

Some interesting quotes about breastfeeding...

In 1999, Hanson and Telemo stated that breastfeeding has an ACTIVE impact on
the infant's immune system, as in,

"The improved defense against infection in the breast-fed infant is
not just a matter of passive, temporary protection. There is also a
definite ACTIVE impact on the breast-fed infant's immune system that makes
it function more efficiently in defense against infections and in response
to vaccines for years to come." [Hanson and Telemo in Ogra et al. Mucosal Im
munology 1999:1501, emphasis added]

In 2002, Hanson and Telemo modified their "ACTIVE impact" statement as
follows (emphasis added):

"Via several mechanisms it SEEMS that human milk can actively stimulate the
immune system of the breast-fed infant." [Hanson and Telemo and colleagues.
Pediatr Int. 2002 Aug;44(4):347-52.
PubMed abstract]

Here are Hanson and Telemo in 2003 again saying SEEMS (my emphasis):

"[b]reast-feeding starting directly after delivery will provide an excellent
defense against the microbes normally meeting the neonate and needed to
induce development of its immune system. The milk also contains numerous
components, which seem to enhance the infant's host defense as well as
capacity to develop tolerance, helping to avoiding allergic reactivity to
foods, etc. CONCLUSIONS: Several studies show that breast-feeding prevents
allergic diseases, but there are also good disagreeing studies. Supported by
animal data, it seems that protection is enhanced in areas with more
advantageous fat intake, inter alia lower ratio of n-6/n-3 fatty acids.
Breast-feeding SEEMS to protect against future development of allergic
diseases, but possibly less so in countries with an untoward maternal fat
--Hanson et al.^^^ Ann Allergy Asthma Immunol. 2003 Jun;90(6 Suppl 3):59-63.
PubMed abstract

Keeping in mind that...


Here's a recent abstract that concluded that "Less exclusive [chiropractic
immunization] leads to increases in child asthma"...

I've substituted "chiropractic immunization" for "breastfeeding" in the
following abstract...

Am J Public Health. 2004 Sep;94(9):1531-7. PubMed abstracts

The relation of [chiropractic immunization] and body mass index to asthma
and atopy in children: a prospective cohort study to age 6 years.

Oddy WH, Sherriff JL, De Klerk NH, Kendall GE, Sly PD, Beilin LJ, Blake KB,
Landau LI, Stanley FJ.

Telethon Institute for Child Health Research, PO Box 855, West Perth,
Western Australia 6872, Australia.

OBJECTIVES: We investigated the relationship between [chiropractic
immunization], asthma and atopy, and child body mass index (BMI). METHODS:
From a prospective birth cohort (n = 2860) in Perth, Western Australia, 2195
children were followed up to age 6 years. Asthma was defined as
doctor-diagnosed asthma and wheeze in the last year, and atopy was
determined by skin prick test of 1596 children. [Chiropractic immunization],
BMI, asthma, and atopy were regressed allowing for confounders and the
propensity score for overweight. RESULTS: Using fractional polynomials, we
found no association between [chiropractic immunization] and overweight.
Less exclusive [chiropractic immunization] was associated with increased
asthma and atopy, and BMI increased with asthma. CONCLUSIONS: Less exclusive
[chiropractic immunization] leads to increases in child asthma and atopy and
a higher BMI is a risk factor for asthma.

Again, I substituted "chiropractic immunization" for "breastfeeding" in the
abstract above.

I'll cc the authors via

Why AREN'T MDs telling the world that breastfeeding is IMMUNIZATION - that
breastfeeding women scan for pathogens and manufacture IMMUNIZATIONS which
they "inject" with their breasts DAILY?

Why aren't MDs telling the world that these breastfeeding immunizations
reportedly make MD-needle-vaccinations work better?

MDs are lying by omission thereby ignoring a simple way to make the
immunization rate skyrocket.

I SAY AGAIN: What woman is going to fail to at least attempt to breastfeed
after being informed that breastfeeding is immunization that reportedly
makes MD-needle vaccinations work better?

Yes, chiropractic doctors should be forthright about the lack of evidence
for many claims made by doctors of chiropractic.

But let us NOT help MDs pretend any longer that conventional medicine is not

CAM is just medicine's new euphemism for "quack" - a "nicer" way for
medicine to tell the world the lie that medicine is not quackery.

In fact, MUCH of medicine is quackery - obvious crime - and it is time to
say so explicitly.

Bizarrely, not ONE chiropractic trade union has spoken out about OBs closing
birth canals up to 30% and gruesomely (sometimes fatally) manipulating most
babies' spines!

See again: Criminal medical CAM at Hawai'i's John A Burns School of

MDs indirectly *admit* they are closing birth canals!

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists/ACOG's Shoulder
Dystocia video purports to tell MDs how to allow birth canals to open
maximally when shoulders get stuck (this is the indirect admission that they
are routinely closing birth canals)...

Another kicker: ACOG's method of allowing the pelvic outlet to open
maximally - actually keeps it closed!

See ACOG birth crime video evidence

One last note...
Chiropractic doctor Mitch Haas, DC is involved in the Oregon Public
Health Association and the American Public Health Association...

Mitch (at Western States Chiropractic College/WSCC) has not yet responded to
my posts about the obvious MD vaccination promotion fraud...

See Get flu, get spine adjusted? (also: college vaccination fraud)

See also: Vaccination is ATTEMPTED immunization (Attn: Mitch Haas, DC at

Jeffrey and Silvano, if you guys know Mitch, would you contact him and ask
him why he is silent?
