• Shaken Baby Syndrome Expert and World Renowned Neuropathologist Banned from Practicing Medicine

    On March 14, 2016, Health Impact News published a report describing how the General Medical Council (GMC) had found neuropathologist and defense witness, Dr. Waney Squier, guilty of misleading her peers, being irresponsible, dishonest and bringing the reputation of the medical profession into disrepute. Taking further action to destroy her career and profession, on March 21, 2016, the GMC decided that it was in the public’s best interest to erase Dr. Squier’s name from the medical register, effectively removing her license to practice medicine and ending her medical career. Speaking to the Guardian newspaper on Monday, the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service, the disciplinary arm of the General Medical Council told reporters that they: “…had no option but to end Squier’s medical career, given her serial dishonesty.” Before being professionally assassinated, Dr. Squier was thought to be the UK’s leading scientist in the field of pediatric neuropathology and had worked as a consultant at the John Radcliffe Hospital for 32 years. Until 15 years ago, she, like many other professionals, had vehemently supported and adhered to the mainstream belief that when a medical professional suspects that an infant has been violently shaken, they must examine the baby for the “triad” of injuries believed to be associated with shaken baby syndrome (SBS). However, after studying and examining the scientific underpinnings of what is only, after all, a theory, Dr. Squier began to develop serious doubts, which led her to express her ever-increasing scientific skepticism. Those doubts are what ultimately led to the abrupt end of her successful career.

    I agree with the first comment. The field of Thyroid medicine is controlled tightly by Endocinologists who are way out of date due to being captured by drug makers of Levothyroxin and similar T4 types. Many patients do not do well on this protocol but are referred to as attention seekers or worse. Dr Gordon Skinner was hounded by the GMC in the matter & made to produce reams of data on treatments that helped many, many sufferers using often, natural dessicated thyroid animal products from 100 years past [& successful] usage. He died recently of a stroke when his case was re-opened -after being previously released from the burden of self reporting. Thousands attended his memorial service in Birmingham and showed how loved and respected he was - more than can be said for pen waving self interested placemen, indeed. They should be ashamed on these issues- but will never relax their grip in the current climate of PC fear and loathing of anyone out of step with the hierarchy of privelege.

    It may surprise the uninitiated, but medical licensing are not a way to protect you the public, they are a way to control doctors. A doctor can kill patients, and be secure in that he will not loose his medical license. What he can not do, isto challenge the medical monopoly, or the earning power of anyone in it. To do so is medical suicide.
