Politicians, corporations, journalists and even scientists sometimes do it - they tell people things that later on turn out to be incorrect. Yet, getting rid of this so-called misinformation is often easier said than done as false beliefs are particularly sticky. In this blog, I zoom in on the current state of the art in misinformation research. In 1998 Andrew Wakefield published an article claiming that the Measles Mums Rubia vaccination was associated with an increased risk of developing autism (Wakefield et al., 1998). The media got a hold of Wakefields findings and soon spread these around the world causing many parents to refrain from vaccinating their children. Later, however, it became clear that Wakefield had distorted his data which consequently led to the retraction of his article (Cohen & Falco, 2011). This elucidation notwithstanding, many parents continue to refuse vaccinating their children because of potential side-effects (OECD, 2012).. There are plenty of cases like ...
Romberg, C., McTighe, S.M., Heath, C.J., Whitcomb, D., Cho, K., Bussey, T.J. & Saksida, L.M. (2012) False recognition in a mouse model of Alzheimers disease: rescue with sensory restriction and memantine. Brain, in press.. Alzheimers disease is commonly regarded as a loss of memory for past events. However, patients with Alzheimers disease seem not only to forget events but also to express false confidence in remembering events that have never happened. How and why false recognition occurs in such patients is currently unknown, and treatments targeting this specific mnemonic abnormality have not been attempted. Here, we used a modified object recognition paradigm to show that the tgCRND8 mouse-which overexpresses amyloid b and develops amyloid plaques similar to those in the brains of patients with Alzheimers disease- exhibits false recognition. Furthermore, we found that false recognition did not occur when tgCRND8 mice were kept in a dark, quiet chamber during the delay, paralleling ...

There are two mechanisms for forgetting unwanted memories, repressing the memory directly, or substituting another thought for the memory.
We are programmed to value "the environment" over humanity. We are programmed to not form nuclear families, or if we have, to break it up via the machinations of the State system. We are programmed to deviate from the natural order of procreation, to accept deviancy as normalized behavior...to become disconnected from our fellow human beings, to cherish and nurture hatred in our hearts, to give over to the idea that we are an oppressed and vicitmized member of some sub-group that has a set of grievances that take precedence over every facet of our lives...so that we are permanently divided and conquered. These realities, these ways of thought indoctrinated into our mainstream consciousness by our mass media and institutions of education, are all nothing more than the symptoms of the population control agenda that is the very real paradigm of this, the Misinformation Age ...
Misleading bat soup videos, vastly inflated death tolls, quack remedies and vaccine conspiracies - a global deluge of misinformation is compounding public fears about Chinas new coronavirus and stoking racial stereotypes.
During January and February 2020, the Institute was subject to concerns that it was the source of the outbreak through accidental leakage,[25] which it publicly denied.[26] In February 2020, the South China Morning Post reported that one of the Institutes lead researchers, Shi Zhengli, was the particular focus of personal attacks in Chinese social media who alleged her work on bat-based viruses as the source of the virus, leading Shi to post: "I swear with my life, [the virus] has nothing to do with the lab", and when asked by the SCMP to comment on the attacks, Shi responded: "My time must be spent on more important matters".[27] Caixin reported Shi made further public statements against "perceived tinfoil-hat theories about the new viruss source", quoting her as saying: "The novel 2019 coronavirus is nature punishing the human race for keeping uncivilized living habits. I, Shi Zhengli, swear on my life that it has nothing to do with our laboratory".[28] Misinformation aside, concerns on ...
An organized campaign by anti-vaccination groups to sow doubt about the effectiveness and safety of vaccines has helped push some vaccination rates among kindergarten-aged children in B.C. to their lowest levels in a decade.. And that campaign - which health officials say is riddled with misinformation, bad science and paranoia - is likely going to result in more outbreaks of the kind that made more than 200 unvaccinated people sick with the measles in the Fraser Valley this month.. Another group, the Vancouver-based Vaccine Resistance Network, is run by Joel Lord, who operates their website from his East Vancouver home.. Lord is a prolific writer, having published scores of articles on the VRMs website. His organization held an anti-vaccine summit in Vancouver last year. He promotes what he calls a vaccine-free natural approach, because he believes the chemicals in vaccines are behind severe damage to childrens developing brains.. Lord says the movement is getting help from high-profile ...

I also posted a quite sensible hypothesis involving various pop culture influences and entertained (however briefly) possibilities involving MK-Ultra type mind control ...

People forget things every day, whether its as simple as where we left our keys or the name of that new colleague at work. But we can also sometimes make false memories - a mistake that bumblebees also experience, according to a new study.
New research at the Weizmann Institute shows that a bit of social pressure may be all that is needed. The study, which appears in the journal Science, reveals a unique pattern of brain activity when false memories are formed — one that hints at a surprising connection between our social selves and memory.. The experiment, conducted by Prof. Yadin Dudai and research student Micah Edelson of the Institutes Neurobiology Department with Prof. Raymond Dolan and Dr. Tali Sharot of University College London, took place in four stages. In the first, volunteers watched a documentary film in small groups. Three days later, they returned to the lab individually to take a memory test, answering questions about the film. They were also asked how confident they were in their answers.. They were later invited back to the lab to retake the test while being scanned in a functional MRI (fMRI) that revealed their brain activity. This time, the subjects were also given a "lifeline": the supposed answers of ...

While a large majority of those surveyed didnt believe the common misinformation about vaccines, the high number of those who did is a concern, researchers said. The large number of people who did believe inaccurate information illustrates how resilient bad information is, a real problem because lowering overall vaccine-driven community immunity can open an opportunity for disease.. Researchers noted that those who reported low trust in medical authorities were often the same who believe misinformation about vaccines, regardless of what demographic group they fell under or the nature of their political beliefs.. When it comes to vaccination information, consider the source. The researchers surveyed participants over two different two-week periods, in spring and fall 2019, and found that their change in understanding about vaccines coincided with where they got the information.. "People who received their information from traditional media were less likely to endorse common anti-vaccination ...
The bloke also seems to think there was one diet amongst early humans and mentions gatherer-hunters. But modern gatherer-hunters eat very different diets compared with each other. Some have lots of meat and some have very little meat. It depends on where they live and how available plant foods are. Hunters often exaggerate their hunting prowess, too. It is often the women and children who provide most of the food - plants and invertebrates - even in groups that say they rely more on hunting.

Risk assessment is important. It gathers info from many different scientific entities such as toxicology, environmental exposure, epidemiology etc. The FDA, CDC, OSHA, WHO and many other regulatory agencies use risk assessment to try to understand human exposure to a compound or ingredient, with the likelihood of a bad health outcome, and thats what helps to set exposure limits.. Part of evaluating risk, is the dose response assessment; how much you need of a chemical to see a negative health outcome. Whats important here is the type of exposure and how long that exposure occurs- to what extent people are exposed to a chemical (daily, for a few seconds?, the concentration of the chemical, how much chemical enters the body, the threshold effects, and if its a possible carcinogen). When toxicology (animal) studies are used for risk estimates, we have to keep in mind that animals are not people, they are often given extremely exaggerated doses of a chemical, and its difficult to extrapolate ...

Statewide, only about 4 percent of all children did not get vaccinated last year.. Its not any better in Baltimore where the Sun call measles and mumps "dreadful diseases". While in Pittsburgh, an article appearing in The Post-Gazette begins:. In the face of increasing evidence that families who oppose vaccination are endangering their own children and public health, some doctors and patients are starting to fight back.. As Ive stated before infectious illnesses are a part of living among other people. Therefore people choosing to live around others are at risk of catching something. My decision to forgo vaccines doesnt place others at risk, it just leaves them where they started.. And "fighting back?" How can you "fight back" when nobodys fighting with you. Just take your vaccine and go away - no fight. Their claims of fighting back are analogous to a thief fighting back against those refusing to be robbed.. Not to be denied a whack at the dead horse of the 2010 pertussis epidemic, the ...
Your doctor is flat out wrong about ap. I responded to you in the thread, but it just doesnt sit right with me that he flat out gave you misinformation. Your post helps perpetuate that misinformation so I wanted to address it directly. There is no reason to believe one ounce of what he sold you. Go to the roadback website and post what your doc said there. You will find that folks there are much more literate than I am. I know your guy is wrong, but Im not versed enough to explain it as I am new to the idea of AP. It is a TRIED AND TRUE therapy. It will not kill you. You are placing all of your faith in your doc but he is not telling you the truth. If you just sit there and believe what he sold you without going to the other website and investigating for yourself, you are allowing your doc to manipulate your health to prove he knows best without even testing his knowledge ...

Can someone, somehow call out the Joe Rogan podcast for peddling this nonsense? He gives this dangerous woman a platform to peddle her goods, and spread deadly misinformation, but he somehow gets a pass because "its just entertainment," or "he doesnt necessarily support the guests viewpoints, he just has intelligent discussions." This has to stop. He is promoting the spread of Kelly Brogan and scores of others that fit the same description, by allowing them on and presenting them to a tremendous and growing audience. I have lost someone that I love to this womans psychobabble. She actually encourages dancing as opposed to antidepressants. This is not entertainment, this is real. These are vulnerable human beings, in desperate states, and theyre being sold a dream that I can only imagine sounds like the answer to all of their prayers. I understand that no one can ban the spread of misinformation, or evangelical preachers, or phony hype men. Thats life unfortunately. But when one ...
Wade Sikorski #51,. I understand your concern regarding blowback from proposing climate change misinformation legislation, but ask yourself what other options are out there to get the global public focused enough soon enough on global warming, and to give our best scientists center stage in the media long enough for them to make their case. This is the main concern we face. If we wait for the warming to create enough natural disasters to convince everyone, that will be too, too late. Weve tried public discourse and it has failed for an obvious reason; the public does not have the sufficient scientific background to understand either the problem or its potential solutions. If a climate change misinformation law passed, and there is no good reason why it should not, the global warming deniers could shout and scream until their heads fell off and it wouldnt matter. The law would be in place and networks like Fox News would either begin to publish the consensus-based scientific facts about global ...
If the teachers union, which includes both married and unmarried teachers does not support this plan (which it apparently does not), then the "fairness" arguments put forth by the Administration fall completely flat.. Furthermore, the claim that the "intent of the district is not to cut costs" can be considered false when that statement is thrown right smack dab in the middle of an explanation that continually throws out the monetary figure of $10,000 as a supposed savings to "taxpayers". Add in the line from the districts "Vision Statement" that says "This approach is in keeping with the Board of Educations long-term fiscal goal of maintaining a positive cash balance through 2020" and we must absolutely understand that this proposal is all about cutting costs.. If Reynoldsburg truly wants to recruit good teachers and retain the excellent teachers they already have (as evidenced by the districts improving performance), then the School Board should quit messing around and seriously reflect on ...

Childhood. I was born in 1943 in Oxford, England. I was the second of five sons of an orthopedic surgeon and a pathologist turned home-maker. For most of my childhood we lived in West Dulwich, an upscale district of South London.. One of my earliest childhood memories is of my older brother holding my finger in the gas fire. I also vividly remember falling through the floor, but that must be a false memory, because however rotten the floorboards may have been, one of my parents would surely have fallen through before a small child did. So maybe the gas fire thing is a false memory too.. In spite of these early traumas, or imagined traumas, my childhood was uneventful. I attended Dulwich College Preparatory School, where I was caned by the headmaster for talking during assembly. All I did was respond to a question posed to me by Timothy Gilkes. But Timothy was the son of the headmaster of Dulwich College itself-the Prep Schools parent establishment. So of course Timothy didnt get caned. That ...
Fabricated news stories cause people to create false memories, especially if the content of the stories align with their political beliefs. While people who scored low on cognitive tests were no more prone to forming false memories, they were more likely to remember false facts that aligned with their opinions. People with higher cognitive ability are more likely to question their personal biases and the news source. Read More ...

I mean it was unbelievable! I need to get some pictures of Travis making some of the faces that he did. He crossed his eyes and put on this stupid, stupid, cheesey grin and started jigging around singing "Kumbaa Ja" or however you spell it. He started talking with a stupid accent. "Deese are dee games vee like to plaayyyyyyyy! Vee like to play deese games." Then Justin, Travis and I sat cross legged in the dirt and those two started drawing pictures in the dirt. It was ridiculous! And then Travis drew a donkey and put a "person" on it. Then he said, "Im going to draw Caitlin now." I cringed. He drew a little person and then he put big tall lines on the head for hair and a big old smile and we all burst out laughing. He surveyed his artwork criticall and then proudly proclaimed, "Shes puurrrrty ...

There is so much misinformation and myths around vaccines, but they are scientifically proven to save lives.. And, no, you do not get the flu from the flu shot.. It is literally impossible to "get the flu" from a flu shot.. Heres why: The flu shot is composed of a dead virus.. And how vaccines work is like this: You expose your body to a dead or attenuated/weakened version of a virus in order for your immune system to activate a series of events that in turn leads to your bodys resistance to that virus.. So the next time your body is again exposed to that live virus your immune system has already built up antigens that recognize this particular foreign body and destroy it.. Thats pretty great news and one of the reasons human beings are living so much longer (that and clean water, antibiotics, etc…).. The fact that we have vaccines for diseases and viruses that had not so long ago been all but a death sentence.. A little prick from a needle in your arm is far better than a preventable, but ...
