Russian journals retract more than 800 papers after ‘bombshell’ investigation

I assure you, this is happening in the U.S. as well. In fact, I recall a highly unethical article in the MMWR intended to frighten doctors from using IV antibiotics for Lyme patients:  https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2017/06/21/ilads-rebuttal-to-mmwr-article/

Excerpt:

According to Dorothy Leland of Lymedisease.org, the lead author, CDC’s Christina Nelson, essentially trolled for case studies to support her pre-determined conclusions by contacting the Infectious Disease Association of California, and possibly other states, asking doctors to provide examples of misdiagnosed people with chronic Lyme and/or had adverse effects due to treatment of chronic Lyme.  The fact she could only conjure up 5 caseswhen there are nearly 400,000 new cases of LD each year.

She even dangled a carrot by giving them co-authorship.  https://www.lymedisease.org/touchedbylyme-cdc-ignores-ethics/

So right here, we have a perfect example of people being given co-authorship and all they did was provide biased examples of misdiagnosed people with chronic Lyme and/or had adverse effects due to treatment of chronic Lyme.

This type of biased research is rife with Lyme/MSIDS and must stop.

According to investigative journalist Mary Beth Pfeiffer, research on Lyme/MSIDS is owned by a Cabal:  https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2017/01/13/lyme-science-owned-by-good-ol-boys/

And many of these folks have patents on everything from test kits to vaccines:

Another glaring issue in the research world is the continuing fixation on the acute phase of the disease with perhaps up to 60% of patients struggle with chronic illness:  https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2019/02/25/medical-stalemate-what-causes-continuing-symptoms-after-lyme-treatment/, as well as the continuing fixation on the moniker of climate change when research has shown ticks are oblivious to weather:  https://madisonarealymesupportgroup.com/2018/11/07/ticks-on-the-move-due-to-migrating-birds-and-photoperiod-not-climate-change/

There are many, many issues that need serious study yet the research world refuses to touch them and continues to do biased work with a preconceived outcome to the demise of extremely sick patients.
