What do aluminium sulfate water poisoning, Gulf War Syndrome, World Trade Centre Syndrome, the neurological disease #ME, the post infection disease(s) #LongCovid and poisoning of Iranian school girls have in common?

A British #psychiatrist claiming ‘mass sociogenic illness’!

2/ Does the psychiatrist, Sir Simon Wessely, project his own catastrophic thinking to all ‘grey’ areas in health science transforming them into black and white?

What cannot be explained immediately can be explained through the old ‘hysteria’ hypothesis?

3/ Thank you @LongCovidAdvoc for this summary on the knighted psychiatrist’s ‘work’!

Despite Wessely repeatedly #blaming media for fueling the affected persons’ ‘mass psychogenic illnesses’ #media has seemingly been satisfied reporting this instead of performing #journalism
4/ Could it be that the thought of the spin doctors in Science Media Centre (SMC) supporting Wessely repulses #investigative #journalism?

Wessely has been on the board of trustees of the SMC

SMC’s director Fiona Fox compared last year in her book ME ‘activists’ with nazis
5/ Personally I’d prefer a different #book 👇🏻

The reason why I tagged NHS England in the below tweet is that they in a press release 9 Jan 2023 told they had appointed Wessely to NHS England Board of Directors

With this guy’s merits through decades…why NOT..? 🫣
6/ Some more informative stuff from the Scottish lawyer David J. Black in my below 🧵 from Dec 2022
7/ So why is this British psychiatrist also of importance to inter alia Norwegians?

The British and Norwegians are strongly #intertwined in the #medical field

An example: a deeply flawed £5 mill trial on #MEcfs in the UK has caused immense harm to patients in inter alia Norway

En 🧵

Sitat fra forskningsartikkel fra @Griffith_Uni:

"Magnetic resonance imaging was performed on a 7 T whole-body MRI research scanner (Siemens Healthcare, Erlangen, Germany)”

Ved @NTNUhelse/@StOlavshospital har de en MAGNETOM Terra 7T MRI scanner, fra Siemens


2/Her er en #avisartikkel om vidunderet som dels ble finansiert av @forskningsradet og dels av @NTNU

Kanskje @Universitetavis kunne tatt opp tråden og luftet studien fra @Griffith_Uni med relevante forskere, om det fins mulighet til å replikere studien?

3/ Fra hjemmesiden til #nasjonal #kompetansetjeneste for funksjonell #MR:

«Høsten 2019 vil NTNU og St. Olavs hospital får Norges første 7T MR scanner. Denne maskinen leveres av Siemens og heter Magnetom Terra 7T.»
