Poisoned Needle
By Eleanor McBean Ph.D.


For the past 2000 years, physicians have been looking in the wrong direction for the cure of disease. Their worse than useless practice of killing germs with poison drugs can never solve the problem of disease. The cause of disease is stubbornly ignored and the seeds for more disease are sown with the use of vaccination. This infusion of poison into the masses only serves to intensify the disease in some cases, suppress the symptoms in others, and create new and more serious disease. Thus, the simple zymotic diseases of the past have devolved into the horrors of the present – our terrifying and expanding crop of “killer diseases”. Eleanor McBean has accumulated compelling evidence regarding the vaccination of the masses, the role of politics and profit, and reasons we should reject the poisoned needle.

Vivisection or Science?
By Prof Pietro Croce
(New English Edition)


As the stream of hi-tech drugs continues to multiply and a huge number of animals (in Britain alone, over two and a half million each year) are used in medical experiments, debate continues about reliable methods for biomedical research and their adequacy in protecting human health from new products and procedures.

In this book, a leading Italian medical researcher concludes, after years of himself practising animal experimentation and vivisection, that the traditional reliance on these techniques is scientifically misplaced.

Published originally in Italian (where it has been through many editions), translated into German and Japanese, and now available in a completely revised and updated edition in English, Professor Croce's classic work constitutes a powerful argument to which both the general public and the medical profession need to pay attention.

He documents with a wealth of fascinating detail precisely how the scientific anti-vivisection movement has constructed a rational case, as opposed to a sentimental or ethical argument.

He highlights the increasing dangers to human health resulting from the animal experimenters' assumption that the biological systems of humans and other species are sufficiently similar for valid biomedical comparison.

Professor Pietro Croce headed the Research Laboratory of the L. Sacco Hospital in Milan for many years, in addition to working in various research departments in US and Spanish hospitals. He is the author of a number of medical works in Italian and Spanish.

The Animals are Our Brothers and Sisters
By Werner Hartinger, M.D.


Respected surgeon and medical doctor Werner Hartinger investigates the claims and counterclaims concerning experimentation on animals. Through meticulous analysis he comes to the conclusion that animal experiments are not only unnecessary, but that the experiments themselves are questionable and lead to meaningless results.

Dr. Hartinger writes from many years’ experience within the medical profession, and with ample scientific data to back his findings. He also tackles the spiritual aspect of this question, inspired by the work of the Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner. The author gives a commentary on Christian teachings regarding animals, examining the biblical commandments. He also studies the varieties of diseases and their causes, and the hidden aspects of sickness and health.

Werner Haringer, M.D, was a specialist in General and Accident Surgery and a practitioner for the Industrial Injuries Insurance Institutes, with over 30 years’ experience in hospital and private practice. He held degrees in Internal Medicine, Gynaecology, Obstetrics and Anaesthetics, and was the Chairman of the German League of Doctors Against Animal Experiments as well as a Patron of Doctors in Britain Against Animal Experiments. He died in 2000.

Confessions of a Medical Heretic
By Robert S Mendelsohn, M.D.


This new release of the critically acclaimed bestseller gives readers the information needed to help make their own medical decisions. Dr. Mendelsohn, world-famous Physician and patient advocate, was a pioneer in the movement toward truth in the medical profession.

At a time when people are more concerned than ever with total health and how to achieve it, this is a book you can’t afford to ignore.

Dr. Robert Mendelsohn, known to millions through his nationally syndicated column as “The People’s Doctor,” was the national medical director of Project Head Start and chairman of the Medical Licensure Committee for the state of Illinois.

When the Nightingale Sang
By Rosalind Franklin
(The nursing life of Cynthia O’Neill S.R.N., S.C.M., QN., H.V.)

Cynthia O’Neill began her SRN training at Hammersmith Hospital in 1956, a time a nurse was not allowed to speak unless spoken to, and as nothing was disposable, everything had to be scrubbed and sterilised before re-use. More time seemed to be spent by a nurse polishing bedpans than caring for her patients!

After achieving her SRN, Cynthia went on to do Midwifery, Queens Nurse and Health Visitor Training. In 1961, she went to work as a District Nurse in Sussex.

However, this book is about far more than nursing: this is a burst of nostalgia for all lovers of the 50’s and 60’s.

As ‘Rock and Roll’ burst upon the scene, and the Cold War rages, a young woman struggles to juggle her career and love life in the days before ‘Women’s Lib’.
