QUESTIONING AUTHORITY - MEDICAL RESEARCH & MISPLACED TRUST

QUESTIONING AUTHORITY - MEDICAL RESEARCH & MISPLACED TRUST
We are bombarded on a daily basis by the mainstream media that urges us all to ‘trust the science’ as if there were only one true scientific message and that all scientists are in agreement with that message. The purpose of this media bombardment is to ensure that we do not question the scientists or their narrative. But more and more of us are learning that this trust is misplaced and that we should be questioning them.
In today’s conversation, activist, molecular biologist Jerneja Tomsic and author, independent researcher Dawn Lester will discuss some of the flaws in the science related to medical research and show that even in this field we must not be complacent and simply place our trust in the experts we are told to believe.
