Guylaine Lanctot is an anti-vaccine activist and altmed purveyor who locates herself on the more incoherently batshit end of the spectrum. She is, indeed, an MD by training, but lost her license in Quebec and subsequently relocated to Florida (hence her inclusion in this encyclopedia even though she is ostensibly Canadian) where she pushes various forms of woo. She is, however, a hero over at places such as Educateyourself and whale.to for her work, including books such as The Medical Mafia.
According to Lanctot Zionist financiers have a stranglehold over the medical establishment, and their control over the pharmaceutical industry have resulted in the medical profession’s acceptance of quack medicine (i.e. prescription drugs and vaccines) because it is profitable, even though it kills people (and took away Lanctot’s medical license): “the whole medical system is designed to make people sicker and sicker.” The book “also uncovers the truth behind vaccines, AIDS, cancer, the World Health Organization, the Rockefeller Foundation, the World Bank, and more.” Her evidence is primarily the fact that science hasn’t managed to cure cancer yet; therefore (instead of even trying to consider to what extent and why that is the case) there must be a conspiracy (you can see her spell out that point in an interview with Kenneth and Dee Burke here). Part of the reason for her troubles in Quebec was apparently the fact that she refused to pay taxes as well, so as to avoid supporting the Medical Mafia. That didn’t really fly with the courts.
Currently Lanctot provides diagnoses and treatments “with her own hands” (no fancy unnatural methods here), relying on her powers of intuitions and anecdotes and appeals to nature. The reason “authorities forbid alternative medicine” (which they don’t) is “because they are serving the industry, and the industry cannot make money with herbs, vitamins, and homeopathy” (which is, of course, false; altmed is an enormous and extremely profitable industry); “they cannot patent natural remedies” (also false). “That is why they [the Zionists] push synthetics. They control medicine, and that is why they are able to tell medical schools what they can and cannot teach,” rather than because, you know, the absence of evidence – Lanctot’s intuitions and anecdotes to the contrary. But the premise is the standard one: since she cannot herself be wrong, everyone else must be in a conspiracy against her. In fact, Lanctot has really expanded on the evidence thing: According to Lanctot the whole idea of scientific evidence is a conspiracy instigated by Rockefeller in 1910, the purpose of which was to eliminate the idea that one can intuit the causes of disease (which worked so well for thousands of years).
Vaccines constitute one of the main issues. According to Lanctot “vaccines are used to test biological weapons … I found that vaccines are used to spread diseases. They are used for targeted genocides,” and “we are actually changing our genetic code through vaccination. Years from now we’ll know the biggest crime against humanity was vaccination.” Huh? What’s her evidence or basis for that? Oh, that’s right. Her whale.to page, with further quotes, is here.
Diagnosis: Hardcore crank and conspiracy theorist. This is definitely one MD whose medical advice you'd want to be reluctant to take.
You were missing so many of the anti vaccine luminaries (and too many are not American) that I started a blog explicitly modeled on your excellent work:ReplyDelete
Thanks for the inspiration.
I didn't see the link, did it work?ReplyDelete
I found this blog and started to worry... so much ignorance on the web! Then I read your reply and I don't worry so much now. Thanks Brad, you made my day!ReplyDelete
The biggest loon is the person who has written this. Dr Lanctot speaks the truth! If only it weren't true, but sadly it is.ReplyDelete
Do you ever do hit pieces on CDC, FDA, pharma loons or is this only reserved for those outside the medical model?ReplyDelete
I see the creators of this BS have nowhere to apply their time. Maybe they can actually research the vaccines. Just a friendly suggestion.ReplyDelete
you're the ones that are BAT SHIT CRAZYReplyDelete
