Hughesair (Inflection Point)

Retired physician and air taxi operator, science writer and part time assistant professor, these editorials cover a wide range of topics. Mostly non political, mostly true, I write more from experience than from research and more from science than convention. Subjects cover medicine, Alaska aviation, economics, technology and an occasional book review. The Floatplane book is out there. I am currently working on Hippocrates a History of Medicine and Globalism. Enjoy!

FSMP (specialty boards) threatens physician license for posting falsehoods on social media

 A dangerous suppression of conjecture, FSMP risks further stifling of the very science they strive to protect. Two statements partially raise a concern: “Statements that the distributor knows are false,” and “scientifically grounded and concerns-driven for the betterment of public health.” 

The distributor, unless a panel of clinical physicians, has no capacity to determine facts, and the panel of clinicians can only offer opinion. Concerns-driven, offers only a broad political consensus, and we see how factual political consensus might be.

Common sense and the FDA, as it stands, supports a positive risk benefit for the US vaccines, but don’t pretend that a medical judgment is other than a medical judgment or that the distributor can know all the facts.
