The Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons (JPANDS... why isn't it JA... ohhhhh, formerly Medical Sentinel) is is the official journal of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. As such, you can pretty much expect what they publish to be crap, whether it be the link between vaccinations and autism,[1] the link between abortion and breast cancer,[2] or the link between potatoes and death.[3] They've published material by some notorious cranks including the Geier family. Also, they have some AIDS-dissidents.[4]

The archive can be found in their General Online National Access for Doctors and Surgeons.
