Abstract
The aim of this paper is to examine if the “medical laws” found by the German physician Ryke
Geerd Hamer are substantiated by contemporary holistic medical theory. He developed a
psychosomatic theory after a personal emotional trauma that he believed resulted in his
subsequent development of a testicular cancer.

From our analysis, it is clear that the two most fundamental principles of Hamer’s work, the
psychosomatic “iron law of cancer” (Hamer’s first “law”) and the principle of pathogenesis
being reversed into salutogenesis (Hamer’s second “law”), are well-established principles of
holistic medicine today.


Hamer’s understanding of symbols in medicine, virus and bacteria, and the evolutionary
process itself (Hamer’s third, fourth, and fifth “law”) differs a great deal from both traditional
and contemporary holistic medical theory and we did not find them substantiated. Hamer’s
understanding of cancer metastasis was built on these failing principles and therefore not
substantiated either. Altogether, it seems that Hamer’s thinking was basically sound as the
most fundamental principles of his work were built on an understanding very similar to holistic
medical thinkers of today. We found his postulate that metastatic cancer patients can be
healed or their health improved by using his system of holistic medicine likely to be true, at
least for some motivated patients. This must be tested scientifically, however, before being
accepted. His presentation of his system and work has been idiosyncratic and highly
provocative, which has alienated him from the whole medical community.

Now, you accept 2 of the 5 points of Hamer:

Show me one patient who has been cured from his metastatic cancer
by using Hamer´s system.

It is a cynical theory and in the end, when it won´t work always
the treating "old school" physicians a responsible for the death
of the patients because they treat their pain with morphin or
disturb the healing process by telling the patient that he has a
carcinoma, which causes a new emotional trauma and prevents healing.

Hamer has already spent a few years in a french jail for practising
medicine while his approbation as a physician was withdrawn years
ago from german authorities. As I asked, show me one he saved - the
victims are well documented. In addition, Hamer had a,
neo-fascistic view, that the jewish doctors treat their patients
after his system, and a jewish conspiracy protects it from
being used by non- jewish physicians for non-jewish patients.

With reference to A. Woodring’s comments below, The
authors are in no way supporting a fascist, anti-Semitic, or
Nazi position, neither philosophically nor politically. But, it is
important to differentiate between a man's scientific
contribution and his political attitudes; if we only accepted
scientific contributions from people who shared our view of
the world, science could soon be a dull enterprise.

Dr. Hamer has made an important contribution to holistic medicine
because he seemingly has shown the world that even very sick
cancer patients can sometimes be cured.

We know of spontaneous remissions of cancer - many cases actually
from Dr. Úlrik Diges research in Denmark - but we do not yet know
how to induce such remissions (please see our papers on
Clinical Holistic Medicine and Cancer in
TheScientificWorldJOURNAL and TSW Holistic Health & Medicine).

Dr. Hamer's work seems to point importantly in this direction.

When it comes to Dr. Hamer's merits our paper on his work presents
what we found of documentation for the efficiency of his cures.

This was actually sufficiently convincing for us to bring it to
a wider attention through this article. Our interpretation of the
documented material is not quite as positive as Dr. Hamer's own view.

Please go though the material yourself and see if you can find
errors in our presentation of the data. We will be most happy to
correct any errors or misunderstandings on our side. Sincerely yours,
The Authors

We have proven facts:

1. There is NO patient ever who was healed by Hamer's "German New Medicine".


2. Most of those who believed Hamer, died an unimaginably cruel death.

We have witnesses and we found more than 130 dead related to Hamer:

http://www.ariplex.com/ama/ama_ham2.htm

To show you the terrible fate of these poor patients, here are the stories of

Carmen (died 2004)
http://www.ariplex.com/ama/ama_ham7.htm

Michaela Jakubczyk-Eckert (died 2005)
http://www.ariplex.com/ama/amamicha.htm

Christina Connell (died 2006)
http://www.ariplex.com/ama/amachris.htm


3. Hamer is a liar and a forger.

We can track down his lies and forgeries. During the last years we piece for piece could take apart his lies and show the truth.

Most of our work can be seen here:

http://www.ariplex.com/ama/ama_p0.htm

and here:

http://www.transgallaxys.com/~kanzlerzwo/board.php?boardid=17

We can show that Hamer's claims about the efficacy of his method are nothing but insane lies. Hamer bases his claims on 2 fundaments: Marc Fréchet in Paris and his own "clinic" in Burgau.

I analyzed Marc Fréchet's claims and found them to be lies and forgeries:

http://www.ariplex.com/ama/ama_ha59.htm

Hamer's story about his success in Burgau is a pile of lies from a to z:
http://www.transgallaxys.com/~kanzlerzwo/showtopic.php?threadid=2059


Now, Mr. Ventegodt, Mr. Andersen, Mr Merrick, DO show us your findings on the efficacy of Hamer's "German New Medicine", because YOU would be the only ones on earth who ever have seen them.

I dare to say, that you, Mr. Ventegodt, Mr. Andersen, Mr Merrick, have nothing to show but your imagination. Or should I say wishful thinking?

What you did - and still do - has no place in medicine as it is a severe threat to the life of patients.

So, for once and for all times: get your fingers out of medicine, get out - and do never come back!

Posted 11st June
2007

(originally posted 30 May 2007
) Dear Gentlemen: Since I have
been so often ''commented on'', allow me, for once, to have my
say. For me it is incomprehensible that professors who have
ostensibly spent much time to thoroughly acquaint themselves
with German New Medicine would write such fuzzy, confused
nonsense and on such low level to boot. Yet, they do know that
the "Iron Rule of Cancer", as it was called back then, and the
Law of the Two Phases of all Meaningful Special Biological
Programs have universal acceptance, as Professor Merrick has
recently confirmed. Of course they have universal acceptance
because already since 1984 they are commented on in the
Talmud and are compulsory for all Jews. Admittedly, at that
time we had only those two Biological Natural Laws. As Chief
Rabbi Denoun of the Lubavitsch movement assured me in 1986
in Paris, this verification had been carried out at that time by
Rabbi Dr. med. Menachem Mendel Schneerson known as the
Rebbe (spiritual leader). Together with his staff of Rabbinical
physicians, most of whom had previously and later taken part in
a series of my seminars in Chambery, he discovered that the
New Medicine (now German New Medicine) was without any
doubt accurate. Based on these findings, he wrote the
accompanying commentary in the Talmud. However, since then
German New Medicine has 3 further Biological Natural Laws
that logically derive from the first two Natural Laws. Yet, these
are questioned - see discussion between Merrick, Ventegodt,
Ranshaw, Waltering, Woodring and Castillo, Markolin

(originally posted 30 May 2007

to see that a bunch of mature professors cannot achieve in
many months what one can accomplish in three days (according
to the testimony of Professor Voigt, Dean and Neuroradiologist
at the University of Tübingen, 1986 in court), that is to verify
the 5 Biological Natural Laws - through reproduction on the
next patient's case. I really have trouble to grasp all this
nonsense: 1. that there are no such things as Hamer Foci and
that these are all artifacts. Any competent radiologist with CT
equipment can establish within a few minutes what is a Hamer
Focus in conflict activity and what is an artifact (they too exist,
after all). All he would need to do is to shift a patient''s head 5
cm from the center line of the apparatus. An artifact always
stays in the middle line of the apparatus and shows through all
layers. The Hamer Focus on the other hand always remains at
the specific brain location where it biologically belongs

(originally posted 30 May 2007

something is wrong with the figure of 6000 survivors (of 6500
patients) that had passed through the Burgau Centre. In the
meantime, I have been fortunate to obtain copies of all patients'
records from the Office of the District Attorney of Vienna
Neustadt. It is absolutely correct that more than 90% of the
desperately ill patients survived 4-5 years. By myself I surely
could never have verified this. 3. that, according to Professor
Joav Merrick, the "Jewish Intellectual" Aaron Antonovsky
published already in 1985 (4 years after Hamer and 1 year after
my book "Cancer. Disease of the Soul", 1984) his Pathogenesis
and Salutogenesis - and that this should be considered
contemporary with Hamer. Also, Rabbi Sabbah of Marseille,
the chief robber of my intellectual property, attended my
Chambery seminars at least 20 times between 1984 and 1990.
Subsequently, he "re-discovered" German New Medicine -
without ever acknowledging my authorship. And it was this
character who initiated a bogus court case against me, together
with his friend, the highest-ranking Rabbi in France and judge
in Chambery, François Bessy (friend of the former French
President Sarkozy). Their accusation was that 10 years earlier I
was supposed to have instigated 4 patients into German New
Medicine, solely by their reading of my books - a few days
before their death by Chemo - despite the fact that I had not
been in France in 13 years. The sentence: 3 years of
incarceration. Time and time again, I was urged to recant and
surrender German New Medicine (to the Rabbis?). This
happened in the largest and most brutal prisons in Europe,
Fleury-Merogis, administrated by Jews. [continue Hamer

(originally posted 30 May 2007

incessant chitchat about anti-Semitism. When all the Jew of this
world may (even MUST) practice German New Medicine and
they then have a 98% chance to survive ... and when Dr.
Schneerson decreed in 1984 that non-Jews should be prevented
from enjoying the benefits of German New Medicine and
(should) succumb to 98% because of Chemo and Morphine - to
the tune of 1500 per day in Germany alone ... well, why call this
anti-Semitism when my non-Jewish fellow countrymen and
women also want to survive with my "German" New Medicine -
not just the Jews? Is it uttering anti-Semitism when one
expresses this wish and even claims it as one''s right? I am
neither racist nor anti-Semitic. I cannot be bribed. I am only the
tribune of all patients - Jews and non-Jews alike. We all have
the right to have our health restored with German New
Medicine. But when I see that Jews have perpetrated the most
horrible crime in world history, then I have something against
those Jews who pretend everywhere to be the persecuted victims
- even when you and your friends would like to see me
incarcerated once again for "inciting the public" (prosecuting
attorney Cottbus) - to see me muzzled because I am exposing
this crime for what it is. [continue Hamer comment part 4]


Dr. med.
Mag.theol. Ryke
Geerd Hamer
Posted 11st June
2007

(originally posted 30 May 2007
) Hamer comment part 4. It is
also an indecency trying to indiscriminately throw German New
Medicine into the same pot with so-called holistic or
complementary medicine, using the rationale: "... it has so many
aspects [of it] in accordance with established knowledge of
holistic and complementary medicine". You simply cannot mix
these, doing this is in fact very dangerous for the patients!
"German New Medicine" has existed for the past 26 years and
so far it has been officially and publicly verified 30 times. It is a
coherent and logical system that comprises not a single
hypothesis and it is, for all intents and purposes, in itself
complete. One should really no longer doubt that German New
Medicine is scientifically accurate - not after 30 verifications -
because otherwise the Jewish fellow believers would hardly
practice GNM on themselves with 98% success. But all that is
even worse: The explicit order of the World Chief Rabbi
Schneerson that the New Medicine should be denied to
non-Jews (as I was told in 1986 by Rabbi Ben Denoun-Danow
Josue in the presence of a witness) reduces this "messianic"
World Chief Rabbi to the level of the worst mass murderer of all
time. You see, not only did all Rabbis in the world follow his
commandments, but all the Jewish oncologists, head physicians
and professors had also been instructed to conceal the
discoveries of GNM vis-à vis their non-Jewish patients. The
same goes for all chief editors of the press and other media who
furthermore conducted a historically unequalled knowledge
suppression campaign against German New Medicine in general
and against me in particular (miracle healer, charlatan, etc.),
and this also includes all judges, attorneys, and authorities who
collectively co-support this crime. [continue Hamer comment

Dr. med.
Mag.theol. Ryke
Geerd Hamer
Posted 11st June
2007

(originally posted 30 May 2007
) Hamer comment part 5. The
problem - or rather that of the Jewish denomination - is that in
the meantime we have come to know about these collusions. Of
necessity, that could create a global anti-Semitic sentiment,
something they themselves will have to answer for because the
Israelis could, due to their covert prohibition of German New
Medicine, end up to be shunned by all of humanity for centuries
to come. Thus they not only would have to fear the relatives of
the victims but also the "Army of the Dead". Since all Jews,
including also (Rabbi?) Prof. Merrick, have for 23 years very
well known that "German New Medicine" is accurate, and that
the brothers and sisters in faith survive their cancer with
German New Medicine at a rate approaching 98%, it comes
down to fraud and "mass murder" (as Prof. Niemitz formulated
it in his testimony). One could also call this a "veritable
extermination". As a theologian I know the Talmud and
particularly the passages where the hate against the rest of
humanity comes to the surface; but I also know that in the
Talmud the gravest penalties are prescribed for those whose
murder and fraud become known and who have thereby
violated the respect and reputation of all Jews in the world.

think even for one moment that one could prevent the
disclosure of this crime against billions of non-Jewish patients
by continuing to hush up the truth, falsify German New
Medicine, slander or even murder me? It is only a question of
time until the ever-expanding resentment of patients or relatives
against the fellow believers results in the latter ending up in a
tailspin. Personally, I would have thought Jews to be more
intelligent. Gentlemen, even if you pretend to be compelled
sooner or later to verify German New Medicine for its accuracy
- I would be surprised if you have the courage to include my
present deliberations in your discussion forum. A wise man told
me: You are the only one, who can say it, You are the only one,
who may say it, and, You are also the only one, who MUST say
it. Sincerely, Dr. med. Ryke Geerd Hamer Specialized in
Internal Medicine, banned from practicing for the past 21 years,

"non-conforming to conventional medicine".

Posted 11st June

2007

Dear Dr. Ryke Geerd Hamer Thank you so much for your
contribution to the important discussion of your work on this
web-site. Please understand that we try our best to assume a
neutral, objective and scientific position, just evaluating your
work according to known theory and experience in the field of
complementary and holistic medicine. I am so happy to see that
you wrote: "I am neither racist nor anti-Semitic. I cannot be
bribed. I am only the tribune of all patients - Jews and non-Jews
alike." Because this is what medicine is about, is it not: helping
our patients, not discrimination anybody for political, financial
or other reasons? But then, when you write: "We all have the
right to have our health restored with German New Medicine."
I feel somewhat concerned. Holistic medicine wasn't invented by
us; it is a long tradition going all the way back to Hippocrates. I
recently found time to read the about 57 books of "Corpus
Hippocraticum" and it already describes the holistic laws of
healing - including the two first of your five principles - and that
was about 2300 years ago. So from my perspective, and please
forgive me for that, you have been courageous and successful
enough to re-discover these fundamental laws of healing. But
they were also known by Hahneman, Heering and other fine
doctors a hundred years ago, who used these laws to create the
medical system of homeopathy. Freud built psychoanalysis on
them. Antonovsky also re-discovered them - and he called the
holistic healing salutogenesis. And our group did also
re-discover them (I wrote my first draft of a hypothesis on the
possibility of holistic medicine and existential healing in 1986, at
that time a university student, and felt like discovering a new
planet! I used the phrase "quality of life as medicine"), not
knowing in the beginning that this was old knowledge.
(continued below)

Søren Ventegodt
Posted 11st June

2007

(continued) Dr. Lindström might have discovered the laws of
healing, even before he understood that Antonovsky had found
them. Dr. Merrick and Dr. Omar also found these laws
independently of the literature, just from their own clinical
experiences, I believe. We were all - as you were - astonished
over the powers and efficiency of these laws, when taken to
holistic medical practice. And some of us were admittedly sad to
learn that we were not the brilliant pioneers that we believed
ourselves to be for a while, but only good doctors with sound
medical reason able to find again the ancient roots of holistic
medicine. Many of us and other doctors working today with the
principles of holistic healing have had at times even severe
problems because we followed our hearts and not mainstream
medicine. We received critique by colleagues, who did not quite
understand our work, for not following the ordinary,
established path of biomedicine. But our sufferings, no matter
how severe and how unjust, must never turn into pride, and
blindness for what other fine men before us have accomplished.
I feel that it is important for the sake of medicine itself that we
understand and acknowledge that wisdom has a sad tendency to
be forgotten and dispersed, and most luckily also a tendency to
be re-found by devoted men and thus to reappear. Thus the
original medicine is once again, but in a new form and a new
wrap, brought to the society that is open for it and to the people
who believes in it and desperate needs it. So I sincerely wish for
you, Dr. Hamer, in the deepest respect for your work, that you
will acknowledge that you are just another doctor in this
ancient line of holistic doctors, who seeks and finds once again
back to the roots of medicine, for the sake of all the patients
that needs us to do so. Sincerely yours, Søren Ventegodt,

Research in Dr. Hamer’s work has been extremely difficult, as
none of it has been published in Medline indexed journals. If
you go to www.pubmed.gov today there is only one hit if you
search for "Ryke Geerd Hamer", and it is this paper in TSWJ.
Naturally the first Medline-indexed scientific paper on Hamer is
raising debate about his work, and this is how it should be, and
we are happy for it. But the debate about Dr. Hamer in this blog
is now heated up and in many ways not at all scientific but mere
opinions and seemingly undocumented accusations. As
publisher I am supposed to peer-review and cancel all
non-scientific and invalid remarks on TSWJ’s website. As the
number of comments has grown immensely, this is no longer
possible for me. I therefore have to choose between deleting all
remarks or letting them all stay. I have, for the sake of free
speech, chosen to let all comments stay on the website, and let
the debate be totally free. I have also restored earlier comments
from Dr. Hamer which I earlier deleted. They are now out of
sequence but dated in the text. Dr Hamer’s comments posted on
2 June 2007 should be taken in the context of MY deleting of
his comments (it was not Dr. Merrick’s decision). (continued

(continued) I am also making the article Open Access so that
people can actually read it before commenting on it. I request
that every participant in the debate reveal his or her true
identity including profession and professional qualifications –
this goes for "ama” as well.
May I remind everybody that there
are laws regulating what you are allowed to say about each
other? I request every participant in the debate to be honest and
truthful, and to discriminate strongly between what are facts
and what is opinion. And, finally, I request that Dr. Hamer
makes a review for us of all the studies made trying to validate
or falsify his treatment – but only including studies not made by
himself
– to be published in TSWJ. Just claiming that
something works is not enough in science, please document it
thoroughly. If you want to submit a paper documenting your
own work to TSWJ we will be most happy to receive it for
peer-review; naturally it must meet scientific standard. So,
please let the debate go on, in a decent and respectful way. We
are all seeking the truth for the benefit of medicine and all
future patients. And Dr. Hamer might have discovered
something significant. I am not qualified to judge. I hereby
declare that the comments on this website do not reflect the
opinion of the Journal or the authors of the Hamer paper, but

They are caught in the quicksand of their own frivolous abuse of scientific names and titles and universities.

Yes, NOW we are getting to the point...

PS: My name and my profession are irrelevant. You may even consider me a 5 year-old sitting on a gnu in an African kraal.

In science it is not names and titles that counts, it is facts.

OPEN LETTER to VENTEGODT, ANDERSEN, and MERRICK

That is the end:

The confession of Ventegodt and Merrick

Søren Ventegodt
Posted 25th June

2007

Dear colleagues,
We are happy that our paper on Hamer’s methods has received
so much attention, but also unhappy that the discussion at times
seemed to be less than open, objective, scientific and fair.
We do believe that it is a fact that cancer often spreads to other
organs (it metastasizes), but things are really not simple in
medical science as every type of cancer has its own individual
pattern of spreading to other organs. Why is this so? Till this
day nobody seems to be able to explain that strange fact. So
Hamer could be right to speculate, and he has his right to make
an alternative hypothesis, even if it seems strange, controversial
and hard to understand. What would science be without
creativity and free thoughts unbound by rigid and traditional
views?
Until we know for sure what is going on in the body and how it
manages its biological information, it seems a little arrogant
just to neglect even the strangest hypothesis. And please
remember that in science we often see that the strangest theory
becomes truth in the end – just think of how Bohr and
Einstein’s strange ideas was received in the world of physicists in
the last century.
The book by Hamer in Norwegian [used as the basis for our
discussion of his work] on his medical principles is a collection
of interviews made in a very smart, sober, scientific, and
convincing way. It is short, crisp, and businesslike, and
therefore good for scientific discussion and critique. It also
seemed to us that there was at least some hard evidence that
Hamer actually did help a low percentage of the cancer patients
that came to him with metastatic cancer and no hope of cure.
That finally convinced us to write the paper on Hamer.
(continued below)


Søren Ventegodt
Posted 25th June

2007

(continued from above)
As we do not read German, we cannot do the extensive review of
the Hamer-material that is needed to make a fair scientific
evaluation of his scientific and clinical work. And maybe that is
not our job either.

As the issue of complementary treatment of cancer seems really
to interest and concern many people, we do hope that a
competent person or group of people with an intimate
understanding of both complementary and holistic medicine
and the German language, will take the next step into shedding
light into this complicated issue.

Thank you for your kind interest in our work and forgive us, if
you in the end will find that we have done a
less-than-perfect-job with the Hamer-paper.


Sincerely yours,
Søren Ventegodt and Joav Merrick

For two years now, Ventegodt, Andersen, and Merrick shine in the light of their article. It was sold for 42 Euros a copy. And it made patients believe that Hamer is right.

How many patients were persuaded by the article and this way fell victim for Hamer and/or the murderous gang of copy-cats?


Now that they are caught, Ventegodt, Andersen, and Merrick AND Lees have nothing more to say than:

Ventegodt and Merrick are professors. They teach students.

Ventegodt and Merrick are medical doctors. The treat patients.

But HOW? How can this bunch of incompetent, ignorant, arrogant impostors TEACH?

How can they dare to treat patients?


The REAL crime isn't their stupidity when writing the article. No, their crime is in what they did since, despite all the warnings and critique they received.


I consider Ventegodt, Andersen, and Merrick and Lees plain criminals.

And I do not let them get away with it...

Könnte es sein, daß Hamer recht hat mit seinen Anschuldigungen? Könnte es sein, daß medizinische Versager wie Joav Merrick in Israel tatsächlich hochrangige Posten in Regierungsnähe oder -auftrag haben? Dagegen wäre selbst Drakula als Chef der Blutbank harmlos.

Daß Ryke Geerd Hamer schäumt angesichts so einer Karriere, die ihm, Hamer, versagt blieb, nimmt nicht wunder. Ihm, Hamer, wurde sogar die Habilitation verweigert.


Was ist das für eine geisteskranke Welt, in der Ryke Geerd Hamer, ein krimineller Psychopath, noch immer frei herumläuft, und seine Abkupferer mit seinen Wahnprodukten sogar internationale Bilderbuchkarrieren mit viel Geld, Ehre und Macht anhäufen?

NEWSPAPER ARTICLES, FEATURE ARTICLES ETC.
1.
From 1980 many interviews by newspaper journalists and weekly popular
journals giving material and background information on the family and
children, child welfare, child development, child health, child abuse and
neglect.
During that activity I have tried to inform and educate on parent-child
relations and the pleasures and hardships of raising children in modern
society. I have tried especially to stress the negative effects of physical
punishment on child development.
All these activities have been published under the name of the journalists
and I have not kept any records of the interviews or publications. But I also
wrote and published newspaper articles under my own name in order to
participate or initiate public debate and the following are some of them.
Merrick J.
You should not hit your child.
Feature article in the major newspaper in Denmark informing on the law
abolishing the parents right to use physical punishment.
Politiken Feature article 1985 Jul 03, Danish.
Merrick J.
Denmark should have a National Child Research Institute.
Politiken Debate article 1985 Oct 22, Danish.

CHILD HEALTH AND HUMAN DEVELOPMENT
National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD).
This institute was established as a virtual institute in 1999 under the auspices
of the Office of the Medical Director, Ministry of Social Affairs in order to
function as the research arm for that office.
The purpose of the National Institute of Child Health and Human
Development is to provide research, education, training, clinical work,
information and leadership in the field of child life, child health, welfare,
disability, quality of life, intellectual disability and human development on a
national coordinated level. The National Institute should provide an
academic focal point for the interdisciplinary research, planning,
development and evaluation of services and programs in the field of child
health, welfare and human development.
All my research activities are conducted under the umbrella of the
NICHD. Hopefully with a physical basis in the future, staff and resources
this institute can expand its activities on the local, national and international
agenda.
Longitudinal child health and development study: The Copenhagen
Perinatal Birth Cohort 1959-61.
The Birth Cohort is a prospective longitudinal perinatal study that included
all deliveries (over 20 weeks gestation, birth weight over 250g) that took
place at the University Hospital (Rigshospitalet) in Copenhagen, Denmark
during the period of September 21, 1959 to December 21, 1961. The cohort
consisted of 9,006 pregnant women, who delivered 8,820 live born infants
and 362 stillborn or late abortions over 25og. 170 women gave birth to
twins, three to triplets and the remainder single births. The pregnant women
were contacted and examined before delivery as early in pregnancy as
possible. In order to evaluate and code the social, medical and obstetrical
information uniformely, all examinations were done by the same physician.
He also saw all women after delivery and coded information made by the
women herself during pregnancy and also the information describing the
events in the delivery room.
The infants were examined by several pediatricians on the first and
fifth day under the guidance of the project director, the late professor Bengt
Zachau-Christiansen. The examination included physical and neurological
examinations. Upon discharge the mothers received a questionnaire related
to child development during the first year, which they brought to the hospital
at the age of one year for a physical re-examination (a total of 8,425 children
survived 28 days). Follow-up physical examinations took place at age three
and six years with developmental recording done by the mothers between
examinations. At a later stage all school health records were retrieved and

coded by one physician (Joav Merrick). More than 1,000 factors relating to
pregnancy, birth and child development were collected on each child
resulting in numerous scientific publications over the last forty years.
In 1993 a new follow-up study was performed and 7,222 of the
surviving children were identified (now aged between 31-33 years) and
contacted with a non-anonymous questionnaire. A written reminder to non-
responders was sent a month later resulting in 4,626 usable responses (f =
2,489, m = 2,131) corresponding to a response rate of 64.1%. The response
rate for each individual question was typically a little lower.
During 1980-89 I was the director of the Birth Cohort after the
initiator, the late professor Bengt Zachau-Christainsen, and after I came to
Israel it is today directed by Soren Ventegodt, the director of the
Copenhagen Center for Quality of Life Research.
We are still conducting long-term follow-up research together and
the work has resulted in the establishment of another Birth Cohort 1997-
2002 (Better health for mother and child) in Denmark with a cohort of
100,000 pregnant women, who has been enrolled during 1997-2002 with the
purpose of detailed studies and long-term epidemiological research in mind.
It is our hope that with the expansion of the NICHD in Israel we will also be
able to find resources to establish an Israeli long-term follow-up birth cohort
affiliated with the NICHD.

Home visitation.
In Denmark home visitation was established in 1936 and it has become a
solid foundation for child health and development with all examinations by
the nurse health visitor conducted at the home of the newborn child. On
average ten visits are conducted to all children in Denmark during the first
year.
In the United States, David Old, the director of the Prevention
Research Center for Family and Child Health at the University of Colorado
Health Sciences Center, initiated Elmira, Memphis and Denver projects of
home visitation that today has been based on evidence and now conducted as
the Nurse-Family Partnership in several hundreds of communities in over 23
states.
Together with David Olds and a post-doctoral student (a nurse and
epidemiologist from Ben Gurion University) presently at the University of
Washington, we are working on a research project to introduce evidence
based home visitation to Israel as a project affiliated with the NICHD.
Trends in adolescent health.
As the editor of the Int J Adolesc Med Health I have introduced an entry in
every issue since year 2000 called “Trend and milestones in adolescence”.
This is a short communication about topics with relevance to adolescence,
public health and health policy with statistic information about Israel and the
world (like suicide, AIDS, violence etc).

CURRICULUM VITAE
JOAV MERRICK

International child health.
As the editor of the Child Health and Human Development domain of the
Scientific World Journal involved in providing an international forum for
publication of child health research papers from all over the globe.
It is our hope for the future to establish within the NICHD a Center
for International Child Health, which would be a perfect addition to the
Columbia and Ben Gurion University program of international health.
Child abuse and neglect.
I am still involved internationally with issues of child abuse and neglect, but
to a letter extend. We hosted the Regional European Conference on Child
Abuse and Neglect in Jersalem in 1999, the first International Seminar on
violence and adolescence in Jerusalem in 1999 and the second in Tel Aviv in
2002.
I am still involved as a consultant to Mital, The Israel Center for
Child Sexual Abuse in Jerusalem, but it is also our hope with reseources that
we will be able to have a researcher at the NICHD involved with the issues
of child abuse, neglect and family violence in Israel.
Community pediatrics.
As a pediatrician involved in community pediatrics my whole professional
life I would very much like that the NICHD, when affiliated with the Saban
Children’s Medical Center at Soroka in Beer-Sheva, becomes involved with
community pediatric issues, policy and service in the south region of Israel
in collaboration with the hospital and the various health services in that
region.
Childhood injuries.
Together with the Israel Center for Children’s Health and Safety (Beterem)
looking at the epidemiology of child and adolescent injury.
Center for Rare Diseases.
More than 10.000 persons in Denmark have a rare disease or handicap (1:
10.000) and many of these persons have felt a lack of coordination,
knowledge or treatment, when coming in contact with the medical services.
It was therefore decided (in 1995) by the Ministry of Health to establish two
Centers for Rare Diseases in Denmark, one at Aarhus University Hospital
and one at Copenhagen University Hospital.
The two centers have to work together in order to coordinate
treatment, research, assessment, education and information on rare diseases
and also to assist other hospitals, the patients themselves and their families.
So far it has been decided to concentrate on: Aperts syndrome,
Neurofibromatosis or Recklingshausens disease, Marfan’s syndrome,
Bladderectopi, osteogenesis imperfecta, Prader-Willi syndrome, Wilson’s
disease, galactosaemia, myelomeningocele and Spielmeyer-Vogt’s disease.




CURRICULUM VITAE
JOAV MERRICK
An electronic chart will be created for each patient with all the
results, treatments and information. Each patient will have his own code and
in the event of hospitalization at another medical center or hospital the
patient can then on-line access the chart for the treating physician. The
patient will also have a copy of his own chart.
We have been in contact with the Israel Association for Rare
Diseases in order to find ways to affiliate their activities with the NICHD
and create a National Center (or centers) for Rare Diseases in Israel.

DISABILITY
Prevalence of disability in childhood and adolescence
We have done several reviews of existing material in order to determine the
prevalence of disability in childhood and adolescence in comparison to the
United States and Scandinavia.
We would like to continue this research and have in mind to do so in
collaboration with the Nordic School of Public Health in Sweden. They have
conducted two major investigations (1984 and 1996) on child welfare in the
five Scandinavian countries (10,000 children in total).
Statistical abstract on children with special needs in Israel
Together with the National Council for the Child in Israel we have gathered
statistical information on available data and plan to soon present the
information in book form.
Jordan River Village
The Jordan River Village Foundation established in the year 2000 has
planned a Village for children with special needs in Israel for 2005 modelled
after the seven camps, Hole in the Wall Gang Camps created by Paul
Newman. There are camps in Ireland, Florida, New York, France,
Connecticut, California and North Carolina.
The camp in Israel is scheduled to have 100 places, where children
with chronic disability or life-threatnening diseases will stay for a week of a
fun holiday. The village will have a medical center, sport, art and craft and
other activities (a 25 million dollor project).
At the moment we have discussions with the foundation that the
NICHD will be the research address for the Jordan River Village.
National database on blindness in Israel
Together with the Division of Rehabilitation, Service for the Blind, a
national database on persons with certificate of blindness (over 15,000
children and adults) has been established.

INTELLECTUAL DISABILITY
National Database on persons with intellectual disability in residential
centers in Israel
The Division for Mental Retardation in Israel provide service to about 6.000
persons with intellectual disability in close to 60 residential care centers
around the country, another about 2.000 persons in community related
programs (hostels, protected apartments etc) and day care to about 15,000
persons living at home. Of the 6.000 persons in long-term facilities about 4
% are between 0-10 years, 12 % 11-18 years, 60 % 19-45 years, 21 % 46-60
years and 3 % over 61 years. 8 % have mild, 41 % moderate, 29 % severe
and 22 % profound intellectaul disability.
The population in residential care provides a unique opportunity for
evaluation and research of many aspects in the life of the person with
intellectual disability in Israel. So far there has been very little research
interest in this population. Since 1999 the Office of the Medical Director of
the Ministry of Social Affairs has initiated several data bases. It is my hope
that these databases will be further developed under the NICHD in order to
function as a National Database on persons with intellectual disability:

National database on medical clinic activity in residential care
centers in Israel
Since 1998 the Office of the Medical Director has collected annual
data on the activities of the medical clinics, the profile and
characteristics of the population served and the utilization of health
services.
Database on Epilepsy
The Division for Mental Retardation in Israel provides service to
over 6.000 persons with intellectual disability in about 60 residential
centers around the country and close to 2.000 suffers from epilepsy
on top of their intellectual disability. We have tried to establish a
National Database on Epilepsy in this population, but so far have not
been able to generate funds to do this.
Database on visual impairment
Together with the Goldschleger Eye Research Institute, Chaim Sheba
Medical Center, Tel Hashomer we have over the last few years
started a study of visual impairment in the population of persons with
intellectual disability. It is our purpose to examine all 6,000 persons
in residential care centers.
Genetic disease and intellectual disability
Together with the Gertner Genetic Institute, Chaim Sheba Medical
Center, tel Hashomer, we have started a pilot study at Kfar Rafael in
Beer-Sheva to investigate the epidemiology of genetic disease in this
population. Later we plan to investigate the whole population in care.



CURRICULUM VITAE
JOAV MERRICK

Health characteristics and health service utilization in older
adults with intellectual disability living in residential care centers
in Israel
Today we see the first generation of older people with intellectual
disability (ID) living both in community and residential residence.
This population is a little know or studied group, because usually
they did not live into old age. They will in the near future demand
health and social services that planners, administrators, clinicians and
service providers have not been aware of. We have therefore
conducted a study and established a database off all persons with
intellectual disability living in residential care centers in Israel aged
40 years and older (population 2,300 persons). The study has been
performed in collaboration with the Office of the Medical Director of
the Division for Mental Retardation and colleagues from Rochester,
Albany and Chicago at Illinois Universities, where a similar study
has just been finished with 1,371 persons with ID living in the
Rochester (New York, United States) community.
Health profile of children with intellectual disability in
residential care centers in Israel
There are about 1,000 children in long-term care in residential care
centers for persons with intellectual disability in Israel. We are at the
moment in preparation for a survey of these children.
Data base on morbidity and health utilization
Since the year 2000 we have collected data on every visit to the
emergency room and every hospitalization of the 6,000 persons with
intellectual disability in residential care centers.
Data base on mortality
Since 1997 we have collected data on every case of mortality among
the 6,000 persons with intellectual disability and published on these
data. It is our intention to establish a permanent electronic database
with data on all cases (about 3,000 charts in our archives).
National Down Syndrome Center(s)
This idea was conceived in order to establish one or more centers in
Israel to be responsible for both children, youth and adults with
Down syndrome. So far we have established this in the south and we
are in discussion with the Ministry of Health to do the same in the
Jerusalem area. Hopefully at some point in the future we will be able
to do it nationally in order to conduct joint research and coordinated
services.

Data base on utilization of wheel-chairs
In 2003 we have developed a national database on the more than
1,200 wheel-chairs in use by persons with intellectual disability in
residential care centers and community related programs. It is our
intention to conduct epidemiological studies on this subject.
Data base on dental care
In 2003 we have developed a national database and electronic chart
in use by our 14 dental clinics providing dental service to 6,000
persons in residential care and 2,000 in community related programs
for persons with intellectual disability. It is our intention to conduct
epidemiological studies on this subject.


Specific health issues in the population of persons with intellectual
disability
Since 1999 we have conducted several studies in this population on various
topics related to health issues and services like:



















Health profile in older persons with intellectual disability at home, in
community related programs and residential care
Utilization of assistive technology
Injury control
Epidemiology of hepatitis A, B and C
Epidemiology of HIV
Epidemiology of Helicobactor Pylori
Psychiatric hospitalization
Usage of psychotropic drugs
Gynecologic problems
MRSA infections
Vitamin D deficiency
B12 deficiency
Physical activity
Physiotherapy related care
Aging
Snoezelen therapy
Nursing care
Long-term care
Specific syndromes and intellectual disability

Persons with Down Syndrome
Out of the population of 6,000 persons with intellectual in residential care
centers in Israel about 600 have Down syndrome. We have used this
database over the years to conduct several studies:


Dental care and dental prevention
Visual impairment

conducted several studies on:


Epidemiology of Rett syndrome in Israel
Physiotherapy and Rett syndrome

Service for persons with intellectaul disability in the south of Israel
Since 1999 our involvement in the south of Israel on the issue of intellectual
disabilty has been strong due to the collaboration with Mohammed Morad,
Clalit Health Service, Division of Community Health and the Zusman Child
Development Center resulting in several studies, prevention and intervention
projects like:







Virtual clinic for persons with intellectual disability in the south
established by the Clalit Health Service in order to provide better and
more efficient services
Connecting all clinics in residential care centers in the south (Tlalim,
Kfar Rafael, Rahat, Ain Hashlosha, Beit Cohen) as affiliates of the Clalit
Health Service
Aleh Negev (near Ofakim) under construction (20 million dollar project)
will be a state of the art residential care center for about 200 youth with
intellectual disability and also have a long term medical care facility
Vision project
Teaching family physicians on the subject of intellectual disability
Teaching allied professionals on the subject of intellectual disability

PUBLIC HEALTH
Child Public Health
Together with the Nordic School of Public Health in Sweden (where
together with Lennart Kohler, the fromer dean, I initiated and wrote the first
Scandinavian textbook on community pediatrics). We now have discussions
on a European master of Public Health degree.
CURRICULUM VITAE
JOAV MERRICK

Global Internet School of Public Health
Today with the introduction of the internet we have unlimited opportunities
to reach a much broader number of people with health issues, health
promotion and prevention, but also a unique opportunity to conduct
international communication, research and educate professionals through e-
learning. Due to advanced technology the world is now in fact a global
village, where meetings, conferences, communication, research and
education can be done sitting at home or the office and being in contact with
professionals across the globe.
We believe it is important to establish a worldwide consortium of
professionals and institutions in the field of public health issues (global and
international health, quality of life, maternal and child health, human
development, health prevention, promotion and holistic medicine) in order to
conduct international research, communicate and to establish a global
internet university with degree program(s). A new form of Open University
or a Global Internet School of Public Health. Over the past years a
cooperation has been established between several individuals in
Scandinavia, the United States, Australia and Israel each working in
different fields (like family medicine, general practice, pediatrics, nursing,
social work, physiotherapy, public health, disability and intellectual
disability) coordinated from the National Institute of Child Health and
Human Development (NICHD) in Israel.
The time has come for this group to formalize the efforts into a
Global Internet School of Public Health. Such a project will need substantial
monetary input, advanced technology and a worldwide professional staff to
create the courses and function as teaching and supportive staff. In order to
move one step forward we need seed money in order for the principal project
director to travel around the world, meet with potential participants and
arrange support, collaboration and monitary support for the project. There is
also a need for a small administrative staff to run the project on a daily basis
already at this early stage.
Disability and intellectual disability
Through our activities we have tried and will continue to try and put focus
on these public health issues, which will be strengthed when the NICHD will
become a physical institute.

So etwas wirres wie dieses Monstergesülze, das Joav Merrick in seiner Homepage (http://sites.google.com/site/jmerrick50/home) als "Full current curriculum vitae" angibt, habe ich in meinem ganzen Leben noch nicht gesehen.

Mit solchem Zeug wird Wissenschaftlichkeit und Kompetenz vorgegaukelt. Sieht man jedoch genau hin, liest man den Blödsinn, den Joav Merrick über Hamer geschrieben hat, fällt Merricks Kartenhaus in sich zusammen.
