Practical recommendations to communicate with patients about health-related conspiracy theories
with @Karen_Douglas & @DrDanielJolley
in @theMJA

#openaccess here:…

A short 🧵 thread on our Perspective piece
Health-related conspiracy theories take many different
forms, but typically suggest that information is
deliberately concealed from the public by individuals
or powerful groups within the government or health
industry. These beliefs are widespread and potentially harmful.
e.g., “pharmaceutical companies are hiding evidence that vaccinations can cause serious illnesses and disabilities in children,” and “the number of COVID-19
deaths have been exaggerated by the media and governments to scare the population”

THREAD| Key #narratives spread by Russian governmental organisations and #propagandists. #Russia’s ‘humanitarian assistance’, ‘Selfish West that does not think about the prosperity of the Global South’ and more ⬇️
🗣️Ukrainian people need humanitarian assistance but the #West sends them #weapons instead - says #Zakharova
💭Let’s make it look like we help people, care about the consequences, and let's try to shift attention away from the causes
🗣️There are #US-funded #biolabs in #Ukraine (see more at @StopFakingNews, @EUvsDisinfo)
💭Let’s appeal to all #conspiracytheories abroad to shift the attention, it seems to be working

🚨NEW from @allthecitizens 🚨
Anti-vax groups want to ‘save the children’ – but what do teens actually want? Our investigation for the @independent by @mccoolingtons & @kdenkwrites is out:…
2/“I think we deserve to be vaccinated because we’re out here trying to get degrees, trying to go to school, trying to live our lives,” said Izzy, 17, watching a small anti-vaccination protest in her hometown in September” #COVID #vaccine
3/ As 12-17 year olds are offered the #vaccine, anti-vax networks are gearing up to respond with increasingly extreme actions - from leaflets spreading disinfo & sending out emails containing fake NHS advice, to storming schools and discussing ways to fake a Covid test.

A vaccine that provides sterilizing immunity prevents the vaccinated from being able to catch or transmit the virus. They become a dead end for the virus.
The current crop of COVID vaccines, which are meant to train the immune system to recognize the S-spike proteins, were not designed to create sterilizing immunity. By their design, they merely help reduce the risk of severe outcomes by priming the immune system.
The vaccinated can still catch and spread the virus ― the definition of a leaky vaccine ― and epidemiological data makes it very clear that this is now happening all around the world. Both the vaccinated & the unvaccinated are equally capable of producing new variants.

Lies people tell about #Water
Part: 1

"We can find charlatans peddling #snakeoil in a wide variety of spheres, but there are quite a lot of lies that are told specifically about water. It's such a ubiquitous substance, everywhere around us, and inside of us,
and since we need it to survive,it's fertile grounds for #pseudoscience. What kinds of lies do people tell about water?There are many colorful examples we will cover,but this first part will focus on the main #conspiracy surrounding water & that is the fluoridation of tap water.
From government mind control to neurotoxic effects, there is no shortage of #misinformation associated with this incredible achievement of modern society, so let's run through the most common talking points and see what they're all about, shall we?

@PeteSouza 1. @GovKemp My parents brought my sister & I to this country so that we could have a better life bc #Salazar, the #PortugalsDictator limited what we #Peasants could do to improve our lives. And we also lived in fear of being arrested at any moment by the #SecretPolice, #PIDE....
@PeteSouza @GovKemp 2. It seems to me that you & the @GOP are depriving #Poor #AmericanCitizens their #RightToVote. A #TruePatriot would make it easier for ALL Americans to vote; not just the privileged! But then we know that Americans are tired of how the @GOP governs & we don't approve.....
@PeteSouza @GovKemp @GOP 3. of the #GOP's agenda & your #ConspiracyTheories! You can bet that this #EuropeanAmerican who remembers what it felt like to live in fear in a #PoliceState will do everything in her power to assure that the @GOP #VoterSuppression laws fail!

As promised, here's my thread on "Coming into Contact with COVID Conspiracy Theorists" or "When Malleable Minds Meet Misinformation." (See ironic anti-fear, fear-mongering example below) #coronavirus #ConspiracyTheories @MelissainJax @NateMonroeTU @BachmanANjax @RenataFCNews 1/16
A couple days ago I noticed that a friend of a friend was posting aggressive #COVID conspiracy memes from an Instagram influencer named "Jake Maverick" whose claim to authority on public health seems to be that he...posts things online. 2/16
Jake is interesting. With over 24k followers, he has quite a soapbox. As you can see from his profile, he is British, of mixed descent, promotes "medical freedom," is vegan, and...masculine? Most of his posts consist of crude memes or rants. It's unclear what he does. 3/16
