Brave New World of Zero Risk Martin Walker's latest publication is available on line from http://www.theoneclickgroup.co.uk and from http://www.mcs-international.org
In this book he examines the influences over science, medicine and the political scene in the UK.
He suggests that corporate interests have been given total responsibility for science, medicine and health, and that public health has suffered as a result.
His book examines the issues of vaccination, genetic engineering and the attacks on those sick with M.E. and chemical poisoning or sensitivity.
Readers will be shocked to read the links detailed here regarding the Nazi company I G Farben with CODEX, and how those who are corrupting science, medicine and politics, have connections with former Communist organisations.
To quote "It shows how those who have fought for independent science have been bullied, attacked and discredited, using political strategies that have nothing to do with science and everything to do with power and profit".

Strangely some are no longer included as diseases, being wrongly included in the accident criteria.
Their own regulations state that the resulting Disease takes priority over the Accident - even if the claimant is not aware of the disease.
