As we publish Positive Health PH Online Issue 270 29 April 2021, the world is bearing witness to the ferocious wave of Coronavirus in India, with the official death toll believed to have surpassed 200,000 deaths. Hence, despite current improvements in Covid in the UK and other countries, we must be vigilant and heed the warning “Nobody is safe until Everyone is safe”.

Positive Health PH Online Issue 270 is published 29 April 2021 –  cover story The Prevalence of Aluminium in 21st Century Life. I exhort PH Online readers to read this article with its fluorescence microscopic image documenting aluminium (orange) and amyloid-b (green) in a senile plaque in brain tissue in Alzheimer’s disease AND the mesmerizing book Imagine You Are An Aluminum Atom by Christopher Exley PhD FRSB which was completely revelatory for me, including its fastidious research content; also its documentation of political dirty tricks on the part of Government, Industry even Scientific Publishers and Academia, apparently intent upon suppressing the truth of the toxicity of this ubiquitous mineral. The most recently published paper in Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology measured and analyzed the aluminium content of infant vaccines with the following conclusions:

“The data have raised specific questions about the significance of the aluminium content of vaccines and identified areas of extremely limited information. Since aluminium is a known toxin in humans and specifically a neurotoxin, its content in vaccines should be accurate and independently monitored to ensure both efficacy and safety.”

Positive Health PH Online was launched in 1994 following a series of attempts to suppress natural treatments for cancer, as recounted in Issue 235:

“Prior to the mid-1980s, I had been a research scientist, working as a molecular biologist in Canada then in the USA attempting to describe, locate and isolate plant genes involved in nitrogen fixation. Soon after arriving in the UK I was researching organic germanium, published a paper, then a book and attempting to organise a clinical trial to test its potential clinical efficacy in HIV/AIDS. In 1989 after several lurid tabloid scandals, an article by Duncan Campbell entitled Pretty Poison, organic germanium was [unjustifiably] banned from sale as a nutritional supplement. This sounded the death knell for research to discover whether this supplement might have been therapeutically useful against HIV/AIDS. According to Martin Walker, author of Dirty Medicine, I may have inadvertently been partly responsible in that I had submitted grant proposals to fund a clinical trial to the then Wellcome Foundation.

“…This was also the time of dramatic events and negative publicity about the flawed Chilvers BCHC research study, purporting to show that women with cancer who attended Bristol Cancer Help Centre were more likely to die than women who received conventional care. The repercussions of the media storm almost closed down Bristol.”

In the intervening 27.5 years  –  >4000 articles and >4,000 research updates later, Positive Health PH Online has continued to aspire to publish genuinely integrative and an authoritative constellation of editorial features, embracing and extending its spectrum to be truly wholistic of Mind-Body-Spirit, rather than an advocate of the current paradigm of pharmaceutical / drug medicine treatment. I have always passionately espoused the bringing together of allopathic (main-stream medical) and natural / complementary / alternative medical treatments, and truly despair of the current focus solely upon  pharmaceutical / drug treatments for cancer – radiation and chemotherapy – and latterly COVID-19 – dexamethasone, vaccination – totally ignoring and actively suppressing clinically effective natural and safe non-drug treatments as continually published within PH Online Cancer Book Reviews and Letters to the Editor Issue 263, Issue 264, Issue 265,  Issue 266, Issue 267, Issue 268, Issue 269 and Issue 270 – against COVID-19.

I fantasize about how the world might have been if natural, immune-enhancing approaches including Vitamin C, Vitamin D and Herbs had been embraced in the prevention and treatment for COVID-19. The initiative Vitamin C in Care Home Study VitaC4Care, will test how much vitamin C is needed to achieve normal levels in care home residents, and how vitamin C levels are linked to COVID-19 infection and death rates. Nutritionist Patrick Holford speaks to Rob Verkerk PhD, Alliance for Natural Health ANH Founder about the study.

Within the COVID constellation of points of view – mainstream and alternative media, there has been an inexhaustible supply of information from international contributors, many of whom are not represented across the mainstream media including:

John Dee’s Almanac – Missing Respiratory Data;     Predicting UK Certified Deaths

Dr Mercola - COVID-19 Vaccines Likened to ‘Software Updates’ for Your Body

Alliance for Natural Health – Covid Vaccine News

GreenMedInfo 7 Days of Truth: 12 Vaccine Facts

Dr Sircus Are COVID Vaccine Safe and Effective?

Alliance for Natural Health - Geert Vanden Bossche PhD DVM - Conspiracy Theorist, conspirator or prophet?

PH Online aspires to present a genuinely integrative and authoritative constellation of editorial features, embracing and extending its spectrum to be truly wholistic of Mind-Body-Spirit. Issue 270 publishes articles on the mind-spirit spectrum including:
