Msg. from Dr Hoffer: MEDLINE Censorship

Post Number:#1  Post by ofonorow » Mon May 15, 2006 7:46 am

Dear Dr Fonorow::

Your report on Chronic Scurvy in Nexus New Times Jan-Feb 2006 is very good and important. You are properly concerned with the lack of attention given to Dr Pauling's excellent work. One of the reasons is that his basic clinical work has been ignored by Med Line as he published it first in our journal the Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine. Even the Proceedings of the National Academy of Science Washington refused to publish his clinical material. This is based on the foolish view that he did not have an MD. The fact is that he had nearly 40 PhD and DSc's and other honors was ignored. Therefore, as Med Line has consistently refused to abstract our journal, his original reports are relatively unknown. I consider this policy of Med Line unforgivable and have been for the past 35 years trying to change their minds. The debate as been taken up by Andrew Saul and Dr S. Hickey, and they are both doing a fantastic job of creating pressure against Med Line policy.

As an example a scientist at a US University found that there was a problem with schizophrenic brains in transforming tryptophan into NAD. I had originally suggested this many years ago. But this work remained unknown and when I pointed this out to the scientist she apologized but it was not her fault. It was Med Lines fault which has deliberately done its best to prevent this keep information from world scientists. This must come to an end.

It occurs to me that you and your web site might look into this. Because it does explain why hs work is not better known. and is not entirely due to the ill will and stupidity of the establishment. They are ignorant too and Med Line helps keep them ignorant.

I told Dr. Hoffer that we are willing to do whatever we can do to help, perhaps even establishing an "Alt" Medline to catalog orthomolecular
articles.

This may be too expensive. Google Scholar may help, it is not
censored! Researchers will certainly use this opportunity to avoid
repeating research which was done before.

Dear Owen,

For now, we will try make Google our Medline. All issues of the Journal of
Orthomolecular Medicine from 1996 through 2001 are now online for you (and
the world's search engines) to find and read, Medline or no Medline, at
http://orthomolecular.org/library/jom/

All issues 1996-2001 are now available free of charge. The remaining
twenty-five years are planned to be posted, also for free reading, within
the next year or so. The current issue of JOM, and the most recent five
years of the journal, will remain available for a fee.

If you would like your readers to have more information, or to take action,
please consider urging them to look at
http://www.doctoryourself.com/medline.html

I appreciate your interest in this important matter.

Best wishes,
A. Saul

Dear Dr Fonorow:

You have already heard from Andrew Saul that all the reports from
J Orthomolecular Medicine will be available on the internet probably by the
end of his year. But it is sad that Med Line, a department of the
US government should be allowed to censor. They are as wrong as he
Catholic Church was so many yeaars ago but the Church reversed its policy
and no longer tells heir members what they are not allowed to read.

Your idea of an Alt Med Line is interesting but I magine would be
very costly to initiate and to operate. I think it might be wiser to use
all our resources to force Med Line to do the job that they are supposed to do


We need an avalanche of letters and protests to Med Line

Hi Owen,

If I may, to add an item to Dr Hoffer's communication:

the background story on Medline's censorship of Pauling and high-dose use of
ascorbate, and, we believe, journals that publish on high-dose vitamin
therapy, is posted at http://www.doctoryourself.com/medline.html

Best wishes,
A. Saul

That's good. On a long term, Google Scholar will win. It has broader
coverage than specialized library services. And it is more liberal.
Who likes censorship anyway?
