Keith Mann v Dr Death & The Oxford Animal Lab in The General Election










MP Dr Evan Harris has been nicknamed Dr Death by some of his fellow MPs because of his enthusiasm for voluntary euthanasia and for extending the time limit on abortions.

He also advocates the use ‘Frankenstein’ hybrid human/animal embryos for research.

Harris is the most vocal supporter of Oxford University’s secret animal research programmes. Here researchers attack the brains of monkey’s in order to replicate the symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease. To most thinking people this is nothing short of idiotic and can never reveal a cure for this devastating, uniquely human condition.

Harris also wants to remove our right to refuse mass fluoridation of our water supply. Fluoride is a waste product of the aluminium industry and is linked to a variety of diseases.

Harris speaks out for the forced vaccination of children and defends drug companies who kill and maim people. The triple whammy MMR he especially favours has been linked to autism in 5000 children in the US alone. Harris has worked feverishly to ridicule and destroy anyone who dares to question the use of these bizarre concoctions in our children.

He is heavily involved with ‘Sense About Science’ a pseudo charity which is actually a front for big pharma interests. Harris criticises alternative (non Pharma) treatments such as homeopathy and he is funded by numerous bio tech interest including GSK, Pfizer, BP, Astra Zenica, the Association of British Pharmaceutical Industry.

Dr Death is an aggressive secularist, serving on the council of the ‘National Secular Society’ and attacking anyone (particularly Christians) who allow their faith to challenge his views.

The delightful Dr Harris has been exposed for spending thousands doing up his taxpayer-funded second home then selling it to his parents for a tidy profit. Claiming over £147,000 he rated 120 out of 646 MPs, and was only £40,000 behind the MP who claimed the most money.

Harris is heavily backed by ‘Sense About Science’. This lobby group is made up of Big Pharma interests and attacks alternative medicine and promotes GM crops. SAS is a spin-off of a bizarre political network that launched ‘Living Marxism’ in the late eighties and campaigned against, among other things, banning child pornography.


The Rise & Fall of Dr Death

Lib Dem wannabe Science Minister Evan Harris is known to colleagues in Parliament as Dr Death

Do a little research and it becomes clear why

Traditional politics have failed all but those who control this game and it’s our view that, using our vote, we can take some of the power from those who thrive on exploitation. This instead of voting to gain a slice of the power pie alongside them. The power lies not with the ruling elite but with the mass of humanity. With us! We tend however to give our power away to those who do not have the interests of others at heart. The Animal Protection Party (APP) intends to use the voting system against those who stand out by fielding our candidates in opposition in order to lose them their seat and to draw attention to the relevant issues. This tactic will remove the financially-driven desire that some have to defend the indefensible and keep things just the way they are.

There are implications for us all by failing to address the rotten animal experimental/disease maintenance system. It is necessary we redirect this vast financial investment toward preventative and healing medicine which this failed process gobbles up.

If you are going to vote but don’t want your vote to be wasted in the usual way then vote for the APP candidate Keith Mann or for any candidate other than Oxford West MP Evan Harris in Oxford on May 6.

Keith Mann is 43 and a long time animal rights activist and carer who has spent many years exposing the many horrors associated with the exploitation of animals. He like many believes the time has come for a major leap in attitudes in the way we behave towards all others.

“Those who rule us have only their interests at hand. The evidence of this is quite overwhelming and we need to take notice. Decent, caring people are taking control of our destiny and shaking the shackles of old and moving ourselves forward into a world where compassion and understanding rule and where greed and cruelty are distant memories. If we take the view that we all are one consciousness, a concept favoured by mounting scientific evidence, and we can’t go wrong. We do harm to one we do harm to all. The answers are all around us but we’re looking elsewhere for them, often to our political leaders. The same applies to seeking cures for human ills in mice and monkeys. It is a failed process exemplified in a national health system which would be better described as a sickness maintenance system.”


Whatever the claims of Big Pharma gofer ‘Dr Death’ link to story and others who exaggerate the progress that has been made in the animal study of Parkinson’s Disease and other human conditions, real insight is only possible through the study of human disease in human patients. Specifically in this case via autopsy where the first breakthrough came in understanding the disease. link to story Brain damaging monkeys and interfering with other animals is cruel, wasteful and misleading. It was the use of primates for Parkinson’s research which was the bedrock of claims for the need for the reviled and grossly expensive South Parks Road lab, or ‘animal hotel’ as some twisted individuals have described it, but some basic research reveal this grossly expensive theory to be utterly flawed.

This ‘world class’ Parkinson Disease research essentially involves directly attacking the monkey victim’s brain to inflict some similar symptoms to those felt by human PD sufferers and then looking for a cure for the traumatised animals’ symptoms. This isn’t science this is insane! PD is caused by a slow degeneration of part of the brain. Animals don’t get it but the best these researchers can come up with to study it is to inflict similar symptoms in them. This has been called ‘Parkisonism’ and claimed to be scientific but to most thinking people it is nothing short of idiotic and never likely to reveal a cure for the devastating, uniquely human condition. Let’s remember that Vioxx, the world's biggest drug disaster, killed tens of thousands, despite being ‘proven safe’ in monkeys. link to story

This, Evan Harris calls, “humane, carefully regulated research”. Take a cursory look at some of the facts and one will see this couldn’t be further from the truth. Of course when you are in that mindset you’ll believe and say anything. And he does… “Without animal research most treatments would never have been discovered and those we have would not be as safe”. A cure for Persistent Outlandish Claim Syndrome is just around the corner.

The claim that experimenting on primates is vital for researching basic brain function or indeed Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, AIDS and other diseases, is contradicted by a scientific review published by patient safety organisation Europeans for Medical Progress: "Non-human primates in medical research and drug development: a critical review" (Biogenic Amines, Vol. 19, No. 4-6, pp. 235-255) available here.

In summary:

· Primates have contributed little, if any information of clinical value to Alzheimer's or Parkinson's treatment: virtually everything we know about these diseases has been learned by studying patients, their tissues and their families. "It is in human tissue that we will find the answers to these diseases," according to Dr John Xuereb, the Director of the Cambridge Brain Bank Laboratory. Deep brain stimulation was pioneered in patients, not monkeys.

· Knowledge of visual development and other basic brain functions has come from acute clinical observation, not experiments on monkeys. "The applicability of this knowledge to humans is essentially nil" - according to an opthalmologist at Harvard University Medical School.

· The Northwick Park Hospital clinical trial fiasco showed that monkey tests created a false sense of security and could never have predicted the catastrophe, while tests in human tissue could have done. Vioxx, the world's biggest ever drug disaster, caused 320,000 heart attacks and strokes, despite being 'proved safe' in monkeys.

· Research on primates, including great apes, has failed to produce treatments for any of our leading killers, including heart disease, cancer, stroke and malaria. The US Government concluded that chimpanzees are deficient for use in AIDS research and redirected $10 million of funding. Other primates are similarly deficient - 80 AIDS vaccines (50 preventive, 30 therapeutic) have now failed in human trials following success in primates.

And From SPEAK here:

“The favourite way of doing this (inflicting brain damage) is to apply MPTP (1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine) to the brains of animals. MPTP is a by-product of synthetic heroin. The problem with this method is that it doesn’t cause PD – it just causes illness which shares some of the symptoms. Even the animal experimenters who practice it – usually experts in blowing their own trumpets and exaggerating the value of their work – criticise it and they don’t claim animals with it have Parkinson’s.

Jay Schneider, one such experimenter, calls it ‘parkinsonism’, and writes: “Some monkeys had cognitive deficits and no motor deficits. Other monkeys had full parkinsonism that was produced after short-term high dose MPTP exposure, and some monkeys had full parkinsonism after long-term low-dose MPTP exposure.” [1]

“…it is essential to understand that animal models only represent an imperfect replica of human disorders, and this is so for several reasons. First, animal models are generally developed in beings (rodents, non-human primates) that are subjects with behavioural repertoires and anatomical characteristics very different from humans. These species differences are known to play a critical role in the clinical expression as well as in the cellular specificity of the lesions. Second, in addition to these species differences, the time source evolution of the nerve cell generation, which normally evolves over several years in neurodegenerative diseases in humans is for practical reasons being replaced over a much shorter period of time in animal models. ” [3]

A further problem which would render animals useless as a method if they weren’t already is that communication between animals and human is so limited. Animals can’t explain their symptoms, emotions, difficulties in motor functions or what affects them in everyday life.

In short, the animal model is a failure because:

· Animals don’t get PD
· The ‘best’ animal model recovers and has some similarities of symptoms – not PD
· Animals can’t communicate well with humans, and have different behaviour from humans
· The illness is induced quickly – unlike the slow degeneration in humans.’

In other words the two models don’t match therefore the conclusions drawn are costly, misleading and ultimately worthless.

Says neurosurgeon Dr Marius Maxwell: "As a practicing neurosurgeon and neuroscientist with more than two decades of research behind me, I know only too well that non-human primate research has contributed little, if anything, to the treatment of patients with neurological disorders. The great strides in our understanding and ability to treat such disorders have resulted from human studies. If we want medical progress, we must focus on humans, not monkeys, using today's sophisticated scanners and other state-of-the-art techniques."

There’s so much more. It’s a compelling conclusion backed up by a great deal of evidence that the animal method of testing for human cures is flawed and the time has long passed for the evidence to be scrutinised independently in full public view.

The science, as it is classified by some, has never been tested in an independent scientific study and such a thing is fiercely opposed by those who defend the use of other animals to test medical theories and chemical products and to generate data, most vociferously from Oxford West MP Evan Harris. And that is why we are in Oxford for the 2010 General Election. We know that there is deep discontent within Parliament where a majority of backbench MP’s support the scientific scrutiny of animal experiments and 83% of General Practitioners surveyed say the same. link to story

Many others can see it too. Go to your doctors’ with an ailment and you can almost guarantee they’ll send you for a limited set of tests and prescribe you one of a small number of drugs: steroids, antibiotics, anti-depressants, pain-killers, anti inflammatory. If the tests don’t find the problem or if the drugs fail to ‘work’ you may well be told it’s in your head or that it will sort itself out in time and you will be left to fend for yourself. This is common but it isn’t the fault of the doctor’s it’s what they are taught and is symptomatic of a system based on drug therapy and investment in monkeys and mice. Look at the hospitals, care hostels and non-drug treatment clinics: the chiropractors, reflexologists, homeopaths, herbalists and so on, they are inundated with desperate people who have been dosed up with all the drugs their bodies can take and they can take no more and want something that works.

“These days Big Pharma is throwing billions of dollars into marketing drugs that really don't do anything new... In a disturbing trend, pharmaceutical companies are in the business of manufacturing a diagnosis to their drug, rather than working on a new drug for an existing condition. From a physician's point of view, we're seeing resources the marketing of ‘me too’ variants of existing drugs” Concord Monitor, 28 March 2010.

Drug reactions are an epidemic in themselves and the cause of an incredible number of hospital admissions and fatalities.

· More than 10,000 people are killed every year in the UK by prescription medicine. In the USA, that beacon of hope and progress at the cutting edge of scientific research and discovery, 100,000 deaths a year are attributed to medical treatment. (‘Of Mice, Money and Medical Misconceptions’, Europeans for Medical Progress)

· One in six patients in hospital are there because of a treatment they have taken. (Dr Vernon Coleman, 'Animal experiments kill people as well as animals')
Healing comes from love and understanding. Only harm can come from the gratuitous cruelty associated with vivisection and revealed in every animal lab expose like this / this / this / this / this / this / this / this / this/ and this and so on.

Evan Harris works for the pharmaceutical industry and in particular GSK. Glaxo is one of the defendants in class actions brought by parents of children left damaged by one of their animal tested vaccinations. An estimated 95% of drugs passed by animal tests are immediately discarded as useless or dangerous to humans. link Others are making the news for all the wrong reasons.


Harris is a front man for the lobby group Sense about Science, which he and they claim is an “independent charitable trust”, but again this is proven to be the opposite of the truth. SAS is represented by such luminaries in the world of horror as the notorious Colin Blakemore, one time cat torturer of Oxford and Medical Research Council rep. link to story

Then there are the financial backers like the Association of British Pharmaceutical Industry the UK pharmaceutical industry's main body and lobby group whose members include 75 companies in the UK producing prescription medicines, supplying more than 90 per cent of the medicines prescribed through the National Health Service. BP, Unilever, Pfizer & GSK are among others who invest too. Intriguingly SAS is a spin-off of a bizarre political network that began life as the Revolutionary Communist Party and switched over to extreme corporate libertarianism when it launched Living Marxism magazine in the late eighties. LM campaigned against, among other things, banning child pornography. SAS attacks alternative medicine and promotes GM crops. link

Dr Death and SAS condemn homeopathy, a well-established method of recovering health, which an increasing number of people use and benefit from. Harris’ bias on this matter is clear, his claims are not based on science rather on his sordid connections to the pharmaceutical industry. Can we trust the opinions of a group which is so heavily backed by those who have a vested interest to discredit remedies that challenge theirs? Since there is a significant rise in those opting for natural medicines it is no wonder the pharmaceutical industry is fixated with harming the reputation of homeopathy.

Harris is also big on promoting dangerous vaccinations and is keen they are forced upon children. The big drug companies have a bigger interest in churning out these vaccinations today than in years gone by since mass-market patented drugs have lost their niche. In this man’s view "It is right that the courts should decide” to inject a child against the mother’s will. A dangerous concoction of chemicals, viruses, metals and animal ingredients with no long term data to even hint at safety in 10 or 20 years time, while the evidence of short term damage mounts up. Harris has worked feverishly to ridicule and destroy anyone who dares to question the use of these bizarre mixtures. What he and his companions did to the pioneer in autism research, Dr Andrew Wakefield and others who have had the strength to stand up and present the evidence of the damage being done by the triple whammy MMR is in itself disturbing.

Over £10 million was spent by the British medical establishment on discrediting the character of three doctors and discouraging other medical scientists from investigating vaccine safety. Meanwhile the numbers of children with autism reached 1 in 66 in 2009, from one in 2000 in 1987 – a thirty-fold increase during the period since when MMR was introduced. Just a coincidence nothing to worry about! link to story

In the USA alone nearly five thousand families are suing the pushers of the drug who have inflicted serious physical harm on their children and changed their lives forever with this intravenous poison. How many children will they destroy before we say enough is enough? link to story

Thimerosal a preservative used in many child vaccines since 1929 contains mercury and is linked to autism, cardiovascular disease, mental retardation, other nervous system conditions, learning difficulties and behavioural problems and is one of the most toxic elements on earth, second only to Plutonium. Thousands of victims and families are fighting for redress in the courts for the damage done. This compound is said to be being removed from some vaccines, that’s not the end of it by any stretch of the imagination link to story and you do have to stretch the imagination to get a fix on just what they do put into these things. Vaccines often contain aluminium as well as formaldehyde and a mind boggling concoction of other undesirables such as animal tissues, pig blood, horse blood, rabbit brain, dog kidney, monkey kidney, chick embryo, chicken egg, duck egg calf (bovine) serum, foetal bovine serum and monosodium glutamate, a neurotoxin. link to story

· The drug company Glaxo (now joined with others as GSK) is an MMR defendant. Federal health authorities in the US have recommended that doctors suspend using their Roatarix rotavirus vaccine due to it being contaminated with a pig virus link to story

· The pharmaceutical giant is also accused of skewing debate about diabetes treatment linked to heart attacks. link to story

· According to the Senate Finance Committee GlaxoSmithKline, maker of the diabetes drug Avandia, knew the drug was linked to tens of thousands of heart attacks but went out of its way to hide this information from the public, says a 334-page report just released link to story

This is just a sample of the suffering and death wrought by just one of the backers of Dr Death. There is so much more, more imaginative ways to cause harm.


The direction of all this becomes clear the more you look. Harris and Co. want us all to be fed fluoride in our daily drinking water. Fluoride is a waste-product of the fertiliser and aluminium industries and is listed by the US Agency for Toxic Substances & Disease Registry ATSDR as among the top 20 of 275 substances posing the most significant threat to human health. Two grams is enough to kill an adult and 500mg a child. Fluoride has been linked to abundant health problems, such as cancer, damage to the kidneys, the brain, pineal gland, thyroid gland, bone disease and, get this, tooth decay! link to story

Of course the thoughtful Harris believes that the decision on whether the public is subjected to water fluoridation should be down to ‘the Government’ (and those who manage the government) rather than the people. In July 2000 JADA (Journal of the American Dental Association) stated that, “ingestion of fluoride does not provide any significant reduction in the incidence of tooth decay”. This is generally accepted by researchers. But even so, we decide for ourselves whether to drink fluoride, right?

Fluoride was used by the Nazi’s to subdue their prisoners. It slowly poisons certain area of the brain, thus making the victim docile.

“Repeated doses of infinitesimal amounts of fluoride will in time reduce an individual’s power to resist domination.” (The Crime and Punishment of I. G. Farben by Joseph Borkin)


What of Dr Death ’s desire for the creation of hybrid human-animal embryos for research? A slippery slope some say, others are simply repulsed by such an idea. Others still wonder what happened to the miracle cures that were just around the corner from tests on a billion live animals. Is this an admission of the failing of all those experiments and the futility of the grossly expensive Oxford lab link to story, that they need to go to the next weird level and try mixing humans with animals, or just another way to get boost the research grants?

Harris wants us to carry on in blind hope using and abusing as his god would have it. "From a religious point of view, it seems right that we should use God-given powers of science to create short-term entities that are microscopic that might be a way of showing us how to develop stem cells from embryos that might be used to treat people with terrible diseases." link to story

In another admission of the failings of the often grotesque and limitless research carried out on animals in the past 150 years, we find Harris vocal in support of the extension of genetic testing of embryos to screen for diseases in the unborn child. "This is a really welcome development - that parents can use new technology to seek to ensure that children they have do not have to undergo the disease and risk of early death that other family members have had to endure." link to story

Why the need if the drug giants can cure all ills with a few more animals, as has long been the promise?

The delightful Dr Harris has also been rumbled for spending thousands doing up and adding value to his taxpayer-funded second home before selling it to his parents and making a tidy profit. Claiming over £147,000 in living expenses he rated 120 out of 646 MPs, and was only £40,000 behind the MP who grabbed the greatest amount from public funds.

Something is very wrong with the way our world is run and this man is at the cutting edge. Some of this we can challenge from the comfort zone of the ballot box but only if we use our vote wisely. It’s time to send a message to this man and those whose greedy, deathly agenda he promotes that enough is enough.
