Throwing children into oncoming traffic: The truth about Autism

By: Kenneth Stoller, MD, FAAP with Anne McElroy Dachel


I have been a practicing pediatrician for over 20 years. I saw my first child with autism in the early 90’s – before that I had never seen an autistic child, and I never saw an autistic child in all my years at school. The boy was 4 years old and you could see the frustration in his face as he wanted to speak but nothing intelligible would come from his mouth except shrieks of anguish.   Continue reading Throwing children into oncoming traffic: The truth about Autism

US FDA:  Maybe It’s Time for the Hercules Solution…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate  Tim Bolen 


In Greek mythology, Aegeas, the king of Elis, had a vast herd of cattle.  The stables in which they were kept hadn’t been cleaned in 30 years. By then it was impossible to clean them and the resulting stench was unbearable.  Hercules, who had been assigned 12 stupendous tasks (“the Labours of Hercules”) to be performed in atonement for a crime he had supposedly committed, came on the scene. One of those tasks was to clean the Aegean stables. Hercules did the job in one day by diverting a river to flow thorough the King’s stables.

The phrase “clean the Aegean stables” now means to clear away an accumulated mass of corruption – physical, moral, ethical, legal… Continue reading US FDA:  Maybe It’s Time for the Hercules Solution…

The pharmaceutical machine and its cohorts operate along two basic hidden vectors: selling drugs that cause harm, injury and death, and suppressing promising non-toxic cures.

In the first case, we have the rarely published figure of 100,000 annual deaths in the US a result of correctly prescribed, FDA-approved drugs.

MY VIEW OF THE BIGGER PICTURE  The Significance of Dr. Tedd Koren’s Courtroom Defeat of Quackbuster Steven Barrett 

A Guest Commentary by:

Steven C. Eisen, DC
Research Coordinator
Foundation for Health Choice


On October 13, 2005, notorious self-proclaimed consumer medical advocate, Stephen Barrett’s defamation lawsuit against Dr. Tedd Koren was thrown out of court after a grueling three and a half day trial. To the unknowing observer, this may seem insignificant, but in no uncertain terms, it was a big victory for the battle of freedom and rights of all individuals to select the health care of their choice.

The American Medical Association has a long standing history of trying to monopolize health care in the United States by eliminating competition. In Wilk v. AMA a Federal court ruled that the AMA and other individuals and organizations had conspired to contain and eliminate the practice of chiropractic. The court found that the AMA and it’s officials instituted a boycott of chiropractors and made it unethical for a medical doctor to associate with chiropractors.

Barrett was MANGLED by the Judges. Continue reading Quackpot Barrett THRASHED in Illinois High Court…

Ill Wind In Illinois… For Quackpot Barrett

Good triumphs over Evil – one more time…

Quackpots all over North America have to be gritting their teeth in anger, suffering the embarrassment of their leader’s NEWEST defeat.

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

Stephen Barrett, who brags he’s written 49 books, and declares he’s “an expert in the fields of peer review. psychotherapy, fraudulent health claims, the scientific standards for proof of health claims, and the ‘alternative’ health marketplace,” was, this week LAUGHED OUT OF an Illinois court.

Illinois Judges, apparently, aren’t impressed with Barrett’s questionable self-proclamations. They threw his court claims against Health Freedom Activist Owen Fonorow STRAIGHT INTO THE TRASH CAN. Illinois 18th Circuit Court Judge Hollis Webster, this last week DISMISSED Barrett’s claims against Fonorow – with some STRONG language…
