Jerome Burne

I’ve been a health journalist for twenty years and written for most of the national newspapers and a variety of magazines. Before that I edited a massive tome called Chronicle of the World and before that I was co-editor of Time Out in the mid-1980’s.

In recent years I written mainly for the Daily Mail. I’ve also contributed regularly to Reader’s Digest and occasionally to the Times Literary Supplement.

This year (2012) I won the  award in the category Medical Science Explained from the Medical Journalist’s Association. I was also runner up in the category Best National Newspaper Feature 

I’m married, have five children and live in London. I’m pretty healthy, swim regularly and find my work endlessly fascinating.

    Is there a way that you can make more public the dangers of all these vaccinations that babies receive? Have you seen the documentary “Vaxxed”? Too many young parents are NOT aware of all the dangers they put their babies and themselves at risk. Something MUST be done very very soon before many more kids become autistic, compliments of traditional medicine, untested medications and the power of the pharmaceutical companies. Thank you for what you are doing.

    • I have written about it here
      For more detail on the film itself see another post on the site here:

      If you are following this story you will find this site – Alliance for Natural Health – a useful and informed scource

      • There is an area I would like to see questioned. I presume you know that in the last year or so it has been discovered there is a powerful (lymphatic) connection between the immune system and the brain, which science-medicine previously believed did not exist and perhaps could not exist.

        In light of this discovery the experts have said, ‘textbooks will need to be rewritten’ but no-one mentions vaccine textbooks.

        Surely if vaccine theory and methodology was invented in a time when this link was unknown and perhaps even considered impossible, now that it is known, vaccination schedules should be reduced to the absolute minimum while the link is thoroughly explored.

        You cannot research something you do not know exists and with Autism and Behavioural and Learning Difficulties in children at epidemic levels, and shocking rises in Brain Cancer in children and the young, along with epidemics of Dementia and Alzheimer’s in the aged, the young and old being the two most vulnerable groups, surely it is time someone called a halt until the impact of vaccines on the brain, and there must be some impact, is exhaustively studied?

    Good evening jerome my name is Daniel pecina from Australia and I’ve read and watched on most recently “food matters” I respect your work . Why I am contacting you is I’m trying to get a local tv show started here In Australia , it will be about health and nutriention . Eating raw foods etc. in fact in my own research I find most people either don’t care or don’t believe the facts I present . If u are interested in helping my new health show in anyways I would love to hear from you . People
    Like yourselves have given me hope that we
    Might get a healthier lifestyle soon . Much respect Daniel . I do realise that you are in London though with technology I’m sure we can find away . Thank you for your time

    • just seen this and your other email. Let me know more about what you are thinking of. Have you seen the two programs on statins by Dr Maryanne Demasi for one of your TV channels – that has a couple of good nutritionists on it.
      As it happens I am going to be in Australia for the first three weeks of April – be in Melbourne mostly but also in Sydney

  4. Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the pictures on this blog loading?
    I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if
    it’s the blog. Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.

  5. Oh I agree that:: “..your integrity and open mindedness”. Whenever I look up anything medical I add ‘Jerome’ and I owe him a lot. A bit earnestly serious from time to time and one might say “a high tolerance of ambiguity with high integrity”.

  6. I only wish we had someone on this side of the ocean with your integrity and open mindedness. Particularly since we are barraged with drivel from the pharmaceutical companies using every venue.
    Carry on sir! Fred

    • Thanks for your kind words. You do have quite a few people who are critical of relying on drugs to treat everything. Dr Mercola, for one, is rather hyper for English tastes and is always warning about the likes of seven deadly things in your fridge, but he digs up a lot of good material and is worth following

    • Try Doc. Malerba as well.
