    Dear Mike Thanks for the always informative blog. I am a family physician in Tasmania, Australia and have subscribed for ? nearly 2 years. The bullshit being peddled by Whole Foods / Amazon is a serious worry. I will forward the article to the people in charge of the AMA (ours, not yours 😀) and the RACGP. I had an ex patient who became an anti vaxxer. Vaccinated her oldest son fully, her second son partly and her youngest not at all. Go figure. I have had one or two young adults present to me for complete immunization. I am very happy to help them. Smartest people in their families! Your article last year on antibiotic resistance and phages got me thinking. There is a major business opportunity here for pathology labs., who could diagnose phage types on multiple resistant bugs, eg in seriously ill people, and on clinician request, brew up some phage and courier it back to the clinician. I mentioned this to a senior person in Sonic Health. (Australian company now operating in UK, Germany and USA). Got them off guard I think. I will follow up. Keep up the excellent work. Cheers

    PS an interesting snippet into the anti vax mind set. Did you see the article about the anti vaxxers who rolled up in a group to screw up some lecture? When someone pointed out they had actually turned up to the wrong venue , they elected to remain there!!! I wonder they have most got some diagnosable cognitive disorder? -D >
