    I took the trouble to read some of it. I'm not impressed. His primary hobby-horse is claiming that the chickenpox vaccine increases the likelihood of shingles later in life and since CDC debunked that paper he's been purely in the camp of anti-vax CT, albeit shrouding his CT of "CDC censorship" in impressive-sounding language and claiming to be some kind of "whistleblower" when he is simply another scientist whose conclusions were shown to be incorrect by subsequent studies.

    This guy is another Wakefield, deciding on the results of his "research" before he performs it.

    Oh, and on the subject of being a "reviewer" for any reputable scientific journal, the editorial board will select more than one scientist who may be considered "peers" of a papers author(s) to review it, and they try to include at least one who has published contrary  findings or findings that do not truly align with the conclusions of the paper they review.

    That "medical veritas" outlet of his is crammed with dangerous errors and CT and frankly, were I still active in the field I would quit any research team that submitted a paper to them and disavow my authorship if I had any hand in preparing it.
