Yesterday’s Burlington (Vermont) Free Press reported that US Senators Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Maria Cantwell (D-WA), and Susan Collins (R-ME) were carrying a bill to eliminate the use of chimpanzees for medical research. The article, which says the lawmakers got on board after being “approached by members of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM),” includes harsh criticism about experimenting on apes from John J. Pippin MD, PCRM’s senior medical and research adviser.
We’d like to know if the Senators are aware, per the correspondence below, that Dr. Pippin and PCRM founder/president Neal Barnard MD have no problem with the Heimlich Institute’s medical atrocity experiments on AIDS, cancer, and Lyme Disease patients, both US citizens and foreign nationals, including Ethiopian sex workers. As Jeanne Lenzer reported this March in the British Medical Journal, the Heimlich experiments have been “denounced by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization.”
For more information, check out Brian Ross’s ABC 20/20 report that aired a year and a half before the Matteson-Pippin correspondence. The segment opens with Dr. Heimlich being feted at a 2007 PCRM gala where he’s introduced by actor Alec Baldwin and includes an interview with Dr. Barnard defending Dr. Heimlich’s discredited medical claims. Also see Paul Teetor’s recent LA Weekly article about PCRM’s “Henry J. Heimlich Award for Innovative Medicine”(!) and our archives.
For our recent e-mail exchange with Dr. Barnard in which he failed to respond to why he knowingly provided false information about the Heimlich experiments to a Georgia blogger, click here.
