Marc Girard MD, Msc

Medical Doctor

After a first training leading to a MSc in mathematics (partial differential equations), Marc Girard became a MD in parallel of his research on mathematical modelling. He works on drugs mainly as a consultant for pharmaceutical firms, and also practices as a psychotherapist of Freudian obedience. Besides a number of scientific papers, he published also in literary criticism, esp. about Flaubert, Balzac, Zola as well as the Grimm’s tales.

His experience as a drug specialist goes from the early phases of development (I, II and III) to late post-marketing, with a long standing interest in safety (monitoring of clinical trials, pharmacovigilance, pharmacoepidemiology): as early as in 1984, he was the first French author to publish a criticism on the methods used to assess the causality of drugs adverse reactions. He also has a long practice of co-operation with regulatory departments as well as marketing teams, including the redaction of a number of experts reports and medical writing (papers, brochures, proceedings). Before of being struck off the list of medical expert witnesses (mainly for having written scientific papers calling for a reappraisal of the benefit/risk ratio hepatitis B vaccination), he was commissioned by French Judges in a number of judicial litigations involving drugs (growth hormone, appetite suppressants, cerivastatine, vaccines…); in France, his papers published in judicial journals (about drug causality or defective products) have been appreciated by a number of lawyers and magistrates.
Boyd Haley, PhDEmeritus

Professor of Chemistry/Biochemistry in the Department of Chemistry -University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center

Dr. Haley received his BS in Chemistry/Physics from Franklin College in 1963. From 1964 to 66 he served as a medic in the U.S. Army. He obtained his M.S. in Chemistry at the University of Idaho (1967) and his Ph.D. in Chemistry/Biochemistry at Washington State University (1971). He was an NIH Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Physiology, Yale University Medical School from 1971 to 1974. His first academic appointment was at the University of Wyoming in 1974 where he was promoted to full professor in 1983.

In 1985 he was hired by the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center with academic appointments as professor in the College of Pharmacy and in the Department of Biochemistry. He is currently Emeritus Professor of Chemistry/Biochemistry in the Department of Chemistry and served as Chair of this department from 1996 to 2005. He was a founder and is the scientific advisor of ALT Biosciences, Inc., a biotech company that synthesizes and markets to major research institutes nucleotide photoaffinity analogs for biomedical research. In the past 23 years Dr. Haley has emphasized studies on the biochemistry of Alzheimer’s disease. [wpex more=”Read more” less=”Read less”]His research in the biochemical aberrancies in Alzheimer’s disease also lead to his identifying mercury toxicity as a major exacerbating factor, perhaps even a causal factor for this disease. He was one of the first to propose that the organic-mercury preservative (thimerosal) in vaccines was the most likely toxic agent involved in Gulf War Syndrome and autism related disorders. He has followed this up with research that demonstrates that several additional factors (Al3+, certain antibiotics), including testosterone, increase the toxicity of thimerosal. Further, in collaboration with others he has shown using mercury analysis of birth-hair that autistics represent a subset of the population that cannot excrete mercury effectively.

In the past few years Dr. Haley has testified before numerous government agencies at the federal and state levels on the effects of mercury toxicity from dental amalgams and vaccines. This list includes two times before the Congressional Committee on Government Reform, the Pentagon to Surgeon Generals, the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences. He has testified before, and supplied affidavits to, numerous legislative committees at the State level that were considering bills to remove thimerosal and mercury from dental and vaccines products. In several situations states have enacted legislation placing restrictions on the use of mercury in dental and vaccine products. In the recent past he has testified before the FDA committee for Review and Analysis of the Literature on the Health Effects of Dental Amalgams and before the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences regarding vaccines and autism.

Dr. Haley has been invited to present lectures on the subject of mercury toxicity and neurological diseases at international conferences in England, Scotland, Canada, Italy, Switzerland, Australia, Sweden, France, Germany, New Zealand, Mexico and Denmark.

Dr. Philip Incao

One of the first practitioners of Anthroposophic Medicine in the U.S. He had a busy family practice in upstate New York in a Waldorf school-and biodynamic farming community for 23 years, until 1996. He then moved to Denver to help the growth of anthroposophic medicine in the west. He founded and practiced at the Gilpin Street Holistic Center in Denver until August 2006, when he moved to Crestone, Colorado where he continues to practice part-time in his home. Crestone is four hours south of Denver by car, and is about the same distance from Santa Fe, New more

Dr. Incao’s special interest is learning how to apply to practical healing Rudolf Steiner’s invaluable and profound insights into the human being.Dr. Incao has been studying children’s health, the immune system, infections and vaccinations since 1970, and has given many lectures and written several articles on these topics.Dr. Incao wrote two chapters and the concluding summary of the book, The Vaccination Dilemma, edited by Christine Murphy and published by Steiner Books. Dr Incao’s article on vaccinations and the immune system, “Supporting Children’s Health” in the September 1997 issue of Alternative Medicine Digest magazine, generated much interest and was reprinted in Asia, Norway, Canada and Australia. He has served as an expert witness in court of law in several trials concerning vaccinations and has submitted medical opinions in support of parents seeking compensation for their vaccine-damaged children.Philip Incao studied liberal arts and life sciences at Wesleyan University and then received his MD from Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 1966. He studied Anthroposophy and Anthroposophic Medicine in Forest Row, England and Arlesheim, Switzerland.

1. Title: Chromosome stability assay
United States Patent 20050079516 (
Embodiments of the invention relate to compositions and methods for evaluating or estimating the invasive potential of cells and thereby differentiating between normal and cancerous cells in accordance with the susceptibility of the cellular chromatin to degradation or other modification by particular enzymes or agents. Chromatin within permeabilized normal and non-invasive cells, including chromatin strands removed there from, are more susceptible to degradation by endonucleases or proteinases than is the chromatin from invasive cells.

2 .Title: Methods and compositions related to a matrix chip
United States Patent Application No.425/MUMNP/2006 (

Embodiments of the invention relate to devices and methods for evaluating the interactions between cells and between cells and matrix materials wherein the cellular distribution pattems formed as a result of such interactions are indicators of the invasive potential(s) of the cells. Furthermore, such devices and methods can provide indications of the preferred sites of metastasis of invasive cells; the efficacy of an anti-cancer drug applied to such cells; and the potential for agents to promote or enhance tumor growth or metastasis.

3. Title: Constricting gel assay and therapeutic patch
International Application No. PCT/US2006/013672
Abstract: Method and compositions relate diagnostic tools to determine invasive potential of tumor cells. Therapeutic patches include a component from the extracellular matrix seeded with tumor cells from an individual and a fibrin backing. Extracellular matrix-based constriction assays are useful to screen for anti-tumor compounds.

4. Title: Methods for determining the pathogenicity of viral strains
Application No. PCT/US2006.035258
Methods and compositions are provided for rapidly detecting the presence and lytic potential of a pathogenic virus in a sample and for determining the pathogenicity of a viral strain to cells, as compared to merely detecting the presence of viruses in a sample. Assays determine the pathogenicity of viral strains based on the viral strains’ ability to expose nuclease sites on the host cell’s nuclear DNA (e.g. condensed chromatin in malignant cells (to a DNA nuclease).

Having had several childhood diseases despite being properly vaccinated against them, Dr. Obukhanych has undertaken a thorough investigation of scientific findings regarding vaccination and immunity. Based on her analysis, Dr. Obukhanych has articulated a view that challenges mainstream assumptions and theories on vaccination in her e-book Vaccine Illusion.

Dr. Obukhanych continues her independent in-depth analysis of peer-reviewed scientific findings related to vaccination and natural requirements of the immune system function. Her goal is to bring a scientifically-substantiated and dogma-free perspective on vaccination and natural immunity to parents and health care practitioners via writing, lectures, and private consultations.

Dan Schultz DC
Dr. Schultz began his research endeavors and efforts in 1994 as an integral part of the effort to defeat Michigan House bill 4392 that sought to eliminate personal exemptions. “I was astounded to realize what went into vaccines (ingredients) and what the actual short and long term consequences could be. Even more alarming was that very few people had taken the time or had an opportunity to educate themselves about these facts.” “I felt compelled as a citizen and free-thinking lover of truth to share what I had learned. Knowledge is certainly power. I want to empower people to make healthier, educated decisions for themselves and their children.”
