Agnotology means 'Culturally induced ignorance by the publication of inaccurate or misleading scientific data. Just for a minute ponder what agnotology in vaccines means and you will start to realise that we have been 'lied' to. Lies by obfuscation. Parents need to get up to speed on the knowledge that is being kept hidden from them in the name of money. The pharmaceutical industry is hiding truth and this not only needs to stop but as parents, we also need to find out why this is happening and how we can protect our children from the poison needles. We have a generation of children to protect...not to mention the entire human genome! Each and every parent has to start asking questions about their children's health. Why not? What harm can possibly come from doing the best job you can as a parent by protecting your children's health? The answer to that is, none. In fact, the second you became a parent, is when that became your ONLY job. Your job, until your child turns 18, is to protect them from a world that would eat them, metaphorically speaking. You must protect not only their physical health but also their mental, emotional and spiritual health. That's your job, and you're here doing it. Good on you! Pixie names the names and joins the dots of the vaccine industry in Australia and elsewhere (and it's more shocking than we all thought, unfortunately) In addition to spilling the beans on the inner circle of vaccinators, this book also... Gives examples of how to avoiding being mandated into receiving vaccines - Protecting you and your family's health now and into the future. Chapter 9 explores the roles of cognitive dissonance, confirmation bias and Stockholm Syndrome - Never again wonder why pro vaccinators seem to absolutely refuse to look at any 'science' that doesn't fit their worldview. Chapter 6 - 'Others Who Are Trying To Warn You' details 22 people that have (mostly) risked it all; career, family, house, relationships, even life, to bring you the honest truth about the dangers of vaccines. Appendix 1 offers the Uninformed Things Pro Vaxxers Say With Refutations Guide - Great to refer to when those common sound bites are provided as 'proof' that "Vaccines are safe and effective" This book is not intended as a scientific guide to vaccines dangers, however, it does include exactly 100 high-quality references to back up all claims.

Agnotology in Vaccines has taken a turn for the worse in 2020. This is your update on the cultural ignorance induced by the publication of misleading and inaccurate scientific data in the year 2020. Agnotology means 'the cultural ignorance induced by the publication of misleading and inaccurate scientific data' Governments around the world are mandating vaccines at a rate of knots and the safety studies have NEVER been done! The vaccine debate is not all as it seems. Pixie Seymour is helping to end this culture of ignorance by lifting the lid on the foul practice that is agnotology in vaccines. Find out who's who and join the dots of the vaccine industry here in Australia and elsewhere (and it's way more shocking than you think!) She has a background in marketing and natural health and is a mother of four children. Only one is of school age and once she found out what's in vaccines, she realised that her youngest child is in the firing line. It's personal for Pixie. In this book Pixie names the names and joins the dots of the vaccine industry here in Australia and elsewhere (and it's more shocking than you think, unfortunately) In addition to spilling the beans on the inner circle of vaccinators, this book also...

At the onset of the Great Recession, as house prices sank and joblessness soared, many commentators concluded that the economic convictions behind the disaster would now be consigned to history. And yet, in the harsh light of a new day, we've awoken to a second nightmare more ghastly than the first- a political class still blaming government intervention, a global drive for austerity, stagflation, and an international sovereign debt crisis. Philip Mirowski finds an apt comparison to this situation in classic studies of cognitive dissonance. He concludes that neoliberal thought has become so pervasive that any countervailing evidence serves only to further convince disciples of its ultimate truth. Once neoliberalism became a Theory of Everything, providing a revolutionary account of self, knowledge, information, markets, and government, it could no longer be falsified by anything as trifling as data from the 'real' economy.

An introduction to the new area of ignorance studies that examines how science produces ignorance—both actively and passively, intentionally and unintentionally. We may think of science as our foremost producer of knowledge, but for the past decade, science has also been studied as an important source of ignorance. The historian of science Robert Proctor has coined the term agnotology to refer to the study of ignorance, and much of the ignorance studied in this new area is produced by science. Whether an active or passive construct, intended or unintended, this ignorance is, in Proctor's words, “made, maintained, and manipulated” by science. This volume examines forms of scientific ignorance and their consequences. A dialogue between Proctor and Peter Galison offers historical context, presenting the concerns and motivations of pioneers in the field. Essays by leading historians and philosophers of science examine the active construction of ignorance by biased design and interpretation of experiments and empirical studies, as seen in the “false advertising” by climate change deniers; the “virtuous” construction of ignorance—for example, by curtailing research on race- and gender-related cognitive differences; and ignorance as the unintended by-product of choices made in the research process, when rules, incentives, and methods encourage an emphasis on the beneficial and commercial effects of industrial chemicals, and when certain concepts and even certain groups' interests are inaccessible in a given conceptual framework.

In 2007, Texas governor Rick Perry issued an executive order requiring that all females entering sixth grade be vaccinated against the human papillomavirus (HPV), igniting national debate that echoed arguments heard across the globe over public policy, sexual health, and the politics of vaccination. Three Shots at Prevention explores the contentious disputes surrounding the controversial vaccine intended to protect against HPV, the most common sexually transmitted infection. When the HPV vaccine first came to the market in 2006, religious conservatives decried the government's approval of the vaccine as implicitly sanctioning teen sex and encouraging promiscuity while advocates applauded its potential to prevent 4,000 cervical cancer deaths in the United States each year. Families worried that laws requiring vaccination reached too far into their private lives. Public health officials wrestled with concerns over whether the drug was too new to be required and whether opposition to it could endanger support for other, widely accepted vaccinations. Many people questioned the aggressive marketing campaigns of the vaccine's creator, Merck & Co. And, since HPV causes cancers of the cervix, vulva, vagina, penis, and anus, why was the vaccine recommended only for females? What did this reveal about gender and sexual politics in the United States? With hundreds of thousands of HPV-related cancer deaths worldwide, how did similar national debates in Europe and the developing world shape the global possibilities of cancer prevention? This volume provides insight into the deep moral, ethical, and scientific questions that must be addressed when sexual and social politics confront public health initiatives in the United States and around the world.

On The Politics Of Ignorance In Nursing And Health Care

Ignorance is mostly framed as a void, a gap to be filled with appropriate knowledge. In nursing and health care, concerns about ignorance fuel searches for knowledge expected to bring certainty to care provision, preventing risk, accidents, or mistakes. This unique volume turns the focus on ignorance as something productive in itself and works to understand how ignorance and its operations shape what we do and do not know. Focusing explicitly on nursing practice and its organization within contemporary health settings, Perron and Rudge draw on contemporary interdisciplinary debates to discuss social processes informed by ignorance, ignorance’s temporal and spatial boundaries, and how ignorance defines what can be known by specific groups with differential access to power and social status. Using feminist, postcolonial and historical analyses, this book challenges dominant conceptualizations and discusses a range of "nonknowledges" in nursing and health work, including uncertainty, abjection, denial, deceit and taboo. It also explores the way dominant research and managerial practices perpetuate ignorance in healthcare organisations. In health contexts, productive forms of ignorance can help to future-proof understandings about the management of healthy/sick bodies and those caring for them. Linking these considerations to nurses’ approaches to challenges in practice, this book helps to unpack the power situated in the use of ignorance and pays special attention to what is safe or unsafe to know, from both individual and organisational perspectives. On the Politics of Ignorance in Nursing and Health Care is an innovative read for all students and researchers in nursing and the health sciences interested in understanding more about transactions between epistemologies, knowledge building practices and research in the health domain. It will also be of interest to scholars involved in the interdisciplinary study of ignorance.
