GP comment:  This is a blizzard of insights on how the body really works and the subtle systemic problems that can be difficult to diagnose and treat. One note: He confuses hybridized wheat with GMO wheat. The latter is not in production.

Rating: 4 of 5 - Very good Infectious Myth

The CDC Vaccine Scandal — A vaccine scandal erupted recently at the CDC, with a CDC whistleblower leaking data about the suppression of the connection between the MMR vaccine and autism.
