Dr. Weeks’ Comment: Mr. Frank D. Millet (aka “FDM”) taught me Latin in middle school and I thank him almost every day for his valiant efforts. Thanks to him I often remark to people in business or strategy session:
But my favorite Latin phrase is quite famous “Quis custodiet ipso custodes”
Who then shall guard the guards?
As regards medical care, we doctors tend to trust the peer-reviewed scientific literature but Caveat Lectoror) (reader beware!) and Cave oculum videntem omnia also.
Read below and note how UNTRUSTWORTHY are many peer-reviewed journals have been bought and sold.
So, in the absence of reliable peer-reviewed literature, we are left with this certainty. Given Cogito ergo sum we can add “Cogito ergo sum Doctor medicinae” After all, a medical doctor needs to not just know and retain what she or he is taught, but also be able to THINK.
Re: WHO and SAGE
FAKE news:– Isn’t it ironic & sad that SAGE claims to be THE ( watchdog) source for exposing fake news when they themselves are a major culprit. See the first 2 links below:
( They remind me of SNOPES ).. another poor source of info.
2. The SAGE Handbook of Media Processes and Effects
( See table of Contents — and whole book)
3. ——But I’m glad the article on FAKE news by NCBI / PUB MED Central called “When drug news is no news” that I used in my Vaccine Note 13 below is NOT a SAGE reference:)
