  1. Comment:
    WOW!!! This comment line is amazing; there's so much that I'm finding it impossible to read it all.

    Again, this vaccination issue is a human rights issue. Those who trust vaccines are free to get them for themselves and their families. I joined the anti-vaxers years ago and have never heard of any who want to take vaccination away from those who want it.

    The anti-vaxers DO want the same freedom of choice for themselves and their families to OPT OUT of vaccination. If vaccinations genuinely work, then pro-vaxers shouldn't have any problem with that. The pro-vaxers have absolutely NO RIGHT!!! to force their Vaccine Religion on other people against their will.

    (The cannibalistic vaccines should be banned, however. They are in the same category as, say, making soap or lampshades from human victims and are a gross violation of rights.)

    Obviously neither side here is going to convince the other........

    This is a bit off the topic of vaccination but shows something, I think, of the thinking of "scientific" mainstream medicine which has been mentioned a lot here:

    About three days ago, the local media here had a brief story about fecal implants!! I could hardly believe what I was reading. I suppose this is "scientific"??…

    Fight the Devils - Vaccine Wars Heat Up

    "Vaccine Wars Heat Up There is an international war going on, a vaccine war that is going into its next phase—going into high gear and it’s a take-no-prisoners type of war. It’s a war where they crucify certain players and continue to inject poison directly into babies’ bloodstreams and so what if some of them die and others get hurt for life?

    Some people and organizations just sell their souls to the devil and could not give a crap about humanity and reason.

    We still have cruel religions that have people throwing babies into the garbage [1] when they are born and even crueler pediatricians with their monstrous organizations that attack babies in the first few hours after their birth with the hepatitis B vaccine that in many places around the world is still loaded with mercury-containing thimerosal, which is a extremely potent neurological and enzyme poison.

    Any competent biochemist would look at the structure of thimerosal and identify it as a potent enzyme inhibitor. What is surprising is that the appropriate animal and laboratory testing was not done on the vaccines containing thimerosal (and aluminum) before the government embarked on a mandated vaccine program that exposed infants to the levels of thimerosal that occurred.
    Dr. Boyd E. Haley

    There are extremely stupid people who walk around and even have control over many people’s lives. They get away with thinking that deadly poisons that have the skull and bones label right on the box are safe enough to give to children. Pediatricians believe this and so do dentists who implant mercury fillings right into children’s mouths. The FDA huffs and puffs and is proud to back such unimaginable terror but the government is thinking lately that we should not have bad thoughts about anyone in government.

    Yesterday Salon online magazine printed the following words and an announced retraction of a stunning essay by Robert Kennedy from a few years ago on the dangers of vaccines containing thimerosal and the link between them and autism, which of course the government, pediatricians and their parent medical organizations will deny until all hell freezes over on earth.

    In The Panic Virus, journalist Seth Mnookin gives a gripping, authoritative account of how the anti-vaccine crusades caught on, shining a bright light on Andrew Wakefield, the now disgraced British researcher whose early work claiming a link between vaccines and autism created a global stir, and authors like David Kirby (Evidence of Harm) and celebrities like Jenny McCarthy, who hyped the shocking connection long after it had been debunked and Wakefield denounced. (The denouncements continue; this month, the British Medical Journal accused Wakefield of an elaborate fraud.).

    We’ve come to believe that keeping even the corrected story up on our site is a disservice to the public, and have removed the story from our archives (you can read more about that decision here).

    It’s so easy to accuse people of fraud these days and get away with it. And people swallow whatever the press says—hook, line and sinker like gullible goldfish swimming around in a bowl. Well we know that the government will not sponsor removing Salon from the web for this public disservice and cruelty toward all children and their parents, so perhaps a nice-sized asteroid will have to be hurled from above directly into their offices. Detect a bit of anger here?

    I am very sorry to have to say this but pediatricians are one of the worst things that ever happened to the human race, worse than the infectious diseases they love to scare parents with. Worse than the oncologist whose passion is to poison and profit from their patients, pediatricians prey on the newborn and young children and attack anyone who even suggests that they might be doing something wrong. Pediatricians make the most terrible mistake a doctor can make when they wrongly assume that everything they do is right.

    Whenever you read or go searching for information about vaccinations you will find many pediatricians saying that vaccination is absolutely a great thing. Doctor after doctor will tell you that vaccinations have reduced the incidence of many infectious diseases but they have no real proof. Just a lot of cackling but no substantiated evidence except them saying it’s so. Should we trust them just on their word? Absolutely not, so parents have the added burden of studying the subject in a more serious way then their baby doctors do. They also have the burden of learning how to treat their own children in a safer and more effective way and that is what Humane Pediatrics is all about.

    Researchers like Dr. Boyd Haley, a mercury toxicity expert at the University of Kentucky, and Dr. Richard Deth, a pharmaceutical science researcher at Northeastern University, say government officials dismiss the dangers of vaccines (and the mercury they contain) because they don’t want to take responsibility. They say the government also doesn’t want to undermine an immunization policy that, according to them, has saved many lives even though we know for a fact from the federal vaccine court that they are also seriously hurting lots of children.

    The Height of Pediatric Madness

    My daughter Lyla Rose Belkin died on September 16, 1998 at the age of five weeks, about 15 hours after receiving her second hepatitis B vaccine booster shot. Lyla was a lively, alert five-week-old baby when I last held her in my arms. Little did I imagine as she gazed intently into my eyes with all the innocence and wonder of a newborn child that she would die that night. [2]

    The height of pediatric madness is seen in the hepatitis B vaccine, which is universally given at birth and then at three months and six months. In many parts of the world these vaccines still contain mercury and the vaccine is given to newborn babies even though they are not at risk of contracting the hepatitis B disease.

    Hepatitis B is not an infectious childhood disease, yet in 1991 the Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommended vaccinating all newborns before discharge from the hospital nursery. Hepatitis B vaccination is recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices of the CDC for all infants, regardless of the HBsAg status of the mother.

    Almost every newborn in the U.S. is now greeted on its entry into the world by a vaccine injection for a sexually transmitted disease for which the baby is not at risk.
    Michael Belkin
    Congressional Testimony – 1999

    This vaccine has been known to severely hurt adults who weigh 20 to 30 times more than a newborn. Because the vaccine is not adjusted to bodyweight, a newborn child is poisoned with the blessings of the majority of pediatricians who just cannot see that there is anything wrong with this. These thousands of trillions of atoms of mercury are concentrated in a small body, which is most vulnerable at birth. It is not difficult to see this as a form of rape, a chemical rape of the most vulnerable and beautiful beings that God sends to earth. And the problem with this vaccine does not begin and end with the mercury and aluminum in it. The hepatitis B vaccine is significantly different from other vaccines with its modified genetic materials that seem to trigger autoimmune reactions in a way not seen in other vaccines.

    In the United States they have taken out all but traces of mercury from the hepatitis B vaccine but they have introduced full strength mercury shots starting at six months of age in the yearly flu vaccine and this is what these idiots are defending. It comes down to utter madness leaving us little choice—since we will not go out and picket the FDA and CDC buildings and personnel—but to pray for the utter destruction of our inhumane civilization, for that is the only way the madness and terrorism against children and their parents can be stopped. Certainly we, the public, the masses have been totally impotent having had our consciousness turned to mush from television and wealthy lifestyles built on top of oceans of debt. We are letting the banks and banker-backed governments steal oceans of money, making Jessie James and his brothers look like punks in comparison.

    So it’s a small step between letting our financial lives be destroyed by the elite and leaving our children in the hands of medical terrorists that hang signs on the street announcing who they are—Pediatricians.

    I am not talking about the courageous pediatricians who know how to think for themselves and have learned how to practice without hurting children. I am talking about the card-carrying orthodox pediatricians (the great majority) who have sold their souls to their pediatric medical organizations.

    God will not have mercy on their souls."

    Vaccines Verse and Worse!

    They say that we must get the shot
    Or we might get ill and die,
    But this is just a clever plot
    and here’s the reason why:
    The vaccines haven’t saved a soul,
    they only make us sicker,
    they’re pushed on us, and here’s the goal
    - to make more money quicker!

    There is corruption on every level
    and many who sell their souls to the devil!

    While the vaccine sellers line their pockets
    the number of injuries rises and rockets.

    They give you seizures, they damage your brain,
    autoimmunity, cancer and pain,
    autism, diabetes, allergy, MS,
    sterility, stillbirths and GBS.

    When we lodge a complaint, the answer’s the same:
    that vaccines are never, never to blame.
    Very few of the injuries do get reported
    and official statistics are grossly distorted.

    Thousands of parents are being accused
    of shaking their babies and killing their kids,
    but it’s really the vaccines which have abused,
    which have caused the syndrome and are guilty of SIDS.

    They say that polio has disappeared,
    but now we’ll tell you something weird:
    it is still here, and just the same,
    it’s simply been given another name!

    More and more little babies now die
    - they’re getting more and more jabs, that’s why!

    Vaccines are a messy brew,
    here’s what’s inside them, this is true!

    Mercury, aluminium and other toxics,
    formaldehyde, squalene, antibiotics,
    cow serum , rat poison, insect cell protein,
    monkey kidney cells, pig gelatine,
    DNA from monkeys and pigs, so they say,

    not to mention recombinant DNA,
    polysorbate, detergents and believe it or not
    - aborted fetus cells, to top the lot.

    They say “ Vaccinate for the common good
    and immunity for the herd”.
    They really have not understood
    that their reasoning is absurd.

    Those who say no and investigate
    get infected by others who vaccinate!

    Vaccines are grossly overrated:
    those who get ill are the vaccinated.

    Those who say no to vaccination
    enjoy a superior health situation.

    When they say don’t think about toxic stuff,
    it’s safe because doses are small,
    that’s a downright lie, a gigantic bluff.
    We can’t trust what they tell us at all.

    When they tell you a substance is quite okay
    to inject as it’s something we eat,
    don’t listen to everything that they say,
    their facts may be based on deceit.

    Vaccine makers do clinical trials
    but fix them to such a degree
    that we might as well call them cynical trials,
    as far as we can see!

    Here is a secret we really must tell
    - they know very little about what they sell!

    They say we should trust their facts and details,
    but their research is faked for promotion of sales!

    There is indeed no justification
    for a vaccine safety declaration
    - it is a perfect illustration
    of statistics manipulation.

    Why should people who are ill
    not be vaccinated?
    Because their condition surely will
    be further aggravated.

    Before vaccine programs come into force,
    diseases have declined
    and honest experts say “Of course,
    the reason is easy to find:
    when living standards rise, it’s clear
    - infectious diseases disappear”.

    For all our children to be well and strong,
    giving them vaccines is really wrong.

    To help the children of the world
    we must all be aware:
    that they need clean water and good food,
    shelter and pure air.

    Then all the children will be strong and healthy,
    - tho’ the vaccine promoters won’t be so wealthy!

    Mercury (Hg)—How To Find It

    "Recently while doing research in another area, I came across information that struck me as something one would never have imagined someone keeping statistics about: Mercury amounts released into the atmosphere during cremation of dead bodies—cadavers.

    Statistics have been generated for several years now and the findings are remarkable, to say the least and should be important enough to stop the use of ‘medical’ mercury in dental fillings (amalgam fillings) and vaccines, which contain mercury in the form of Thimerosal. Another mercury source probably is from pacemaker batteries. There’s even been talk, as I understand, of having filled teeth removed from dead bodies before cremation, as the amount of mercury going out the crematorium stack is mounting.

    Since mercury is now becoming a serious environmental hazard—so why the CFL light bulbs that contain mercury—especially in food grown in California due to mercury used in the 1840s gold rush mining days leaching into water supplies now used in agriculture, environmentalists are taking serious note of mercury pollution sources.

    Interestingly, a draft fact sheet produced by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency stated that an average emission of 5 grams of mercury is assumed. Furthermore, that same draft indicated that cremations account for “just under 32% of mercury emissions to the atmosphere.”

    In February 2001, a British newspaper article reported that an average of 2.95 grams of mercury per cremation was emitted into the atmosphere. In Norway a researcher reported that an estimated 2 to 4 grams of mercury per cremation were emitted into the atmosphere. Those figures are based upon adult body cremations.

    A statistic was generated that one would not have thought meaningful, i.e., Mercury in Crematoria Workers as per The Lancet, 1998. The measurement was taken from mercury found in hair in parts per million. That type of tissue testing/sampling has been around for years—the U.S. Army used it—and it’s known as a spectrographic hair analysis. See this link for more information about that

    Now, if the mercury hair test results information was accepted and published in The Lancet, why not start taking hair sample studies of infants, toddlers, and teens who have neurological health anomalies such as autism spectrum disorder, ADD, ADHD, narcolepsy, epilepsy, and learning disabilities to find the heavy metals that are hanging up on enzyme systems and pathways that are causing damage, which a detox program could relieve? Doesn’t that make sense, since no one seems to be getting to the bottom of why our kids are getting neurologically impaired by the droves—how about pandemic, and which seems to coincide with the more vaccines they get, the more neurological problems occur.

    Heavy metals and neurotoxins like aluminum and mercury store in soft body tissue in kiddies similar to the way lead stores in bones in adults. However, both aluminum and mercury store in soft body tissue and bones in growing children. Hair would be the most logical body tissue to sample since it grows about one-quarter to half an inch a month; is not traumatic to obtain; and is a reliable tissue sample comparable to blood, urine, fecal matter, etc., since the body naturally grows it.

    That would be a most logical starting point to finding out what’s most likely storing in kids’ brains and bodies that is making them neurologically disabled. It’s not rocket science but it is ‘damning’ because it does tell what heavy metals are stored in the hair.

    From where I come in my studies and research—by the way I wrote the book Understanding Body Chemistry and Hair Mineral Analysis in the early 1980s, so I think I know something about what I speak, assaying neurologically-compromised children’s hair for heavy metals could be the defining factor of what’s making them sick. It could be that simple, if the feds get out of the way and let researchers and medical doctors who know what to do, do the work.

    Now here’s what I’m thinking from an analytical and scientific standpoint: What would be the amount of mercury and/or aluminum in an infant, toddler, and teenager—especially those who had no silver fillings in their teeth. My contention is that not only should mercury be measured but aluminum since both neurotoxic metals are injected into children in vaccines/vaccinations at very vulnerable ages, i.e., 2, 4, 6 months and onward for a total of 68 up to college age.

    Personally and from a scientific mindset, I would like to see this kind of assay work done as part of the investigation into why so many young children in the USA and globally now are seriously impaired neurologically. I think it’s time to bite the bullet on the real science of why kids are so sick, and it’s as easy as this to start the process when accurate assays, record keeping, and statistical data reporting are not impeded by those who have special axes to grind or financial interests to preserve.

    In my opinion, instead of mandating more vaccines/vaccinations, health agencies should be mandating and implementing hair testing of every child should begin as soon as enough hair can be taken for a viable spectrographic analysis. Hair tells what the body has stored in tissue, and can be the clue science is looking for.

    Anti-vaccine movement grows in many states

    "ATLANTA — A rising number of parents in more than half of states are opting out of school shots for their kids. And in eight states, more than 1 in 20 public school kindergartners do not get all the vaccines required for attendance, an Associated Press analysis found.

    That has health officials worried about possible new outbreaks of diseases that were all but stamped out.

    The AP analysis found that more than half of states have seen at least a slight rise in the rate of exemptions over the past five years. States with the highest exemption rates are in the West and Upper Midwest and include Washington.

    It’s “really gotten much worse,” said Mary Selecky, secretary of health for Washington state, where 6 percent of public school parents have opted out.

    Rules for exemptions vary by state and can include medical, religious or philosophical reasons.

    Parents’ reasons for skipping the shots vary. Some doubt that vaccines are essential. Others fear that vaccines carry their own risks. And some find it easier to check a box opting out than to get the shots.

    Still others are ambivalent, believing in older vaccines but questioning newer shots against, say, chickenpox.

    The number of shots is also giving some parents pause. By the time most children are 6, they will have been stuck with a needle about two dozen times – with many of those shots given in infancy. The cumulative effect of all those shots has not been studied enough, some parents say.

    “Many of the vaccines are unnecessary, and public health officials don’t honestly know” the effects of giving so many vaccines to such small children, said Jennifer Margulis, a mother of four and parenting book author in Ashland, Ore., which has unusually high vaccination exemption rates.

    But few serious problems have turned up over years of vaccinations, and several studies have shown no link between vaccines and autism, a theory from the 1990s that has been widely discredited.

    To be sure, childhood vaccination rates remain high overall, at 90 percent or better for several vaccines, including those for polio, measles, hepatitis B and chickenpox. In many states, exemptions are filed for fewer than 1 percent of children entering school for the first time.

    Health officials have not identified an exemption threshold that would likely lead to outbreaks. But they worry when some states have exemption rates beyond 5 percent. The average state exemption rate has been estimated at less than half that.

    Even more troubling are pockets in some states where exemption rates are much higher. In some rural counties in northeast Washington, for example, vaccination exemption rates in recent years have been above 20 percent and even as high as 50 percent.

    “Vaccine refusers tend to cluster,” said Saad Omer, an Emory University epidemiologist who has done extensive research on the issue.

    Parents who let their kids skip some vaccines put others at risk, health officials say. Because no vaccine is completely effective, if an outbreak begins in an unvaccinated group of children, a vaccinated child may still be at some risk of getting sick.

    Studies have found that measles has suddenly re-emerged in some communities with higher exemption rates. Vaccinated kids are sometimes among the cases, or children too young to be vaccinated.

    And measles isn’t the only risk. Last year, California had more than 2,100 whooping cough cases, and 10 infants died. Only one had received a first dose of vaccine.

    “Your child’s risk of getting disease depends on what your neighbors do,” Omer said.

    While it seems unlikely that diseases like polio and diphtheria could make a comeback in the U.S., immunization expert Dr. Lance Rodewald says it’s not impossible.

    “Polio can come back. China was polio-free for two decades, and just this year, they were infected from Pakistan. And there is a big outbreak of polio in China now. The same could happen here,” Rodewald, of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said in an email.

    For its review, the AP asked state health departments for kindergarten exemption rates for 2006-07 and 2010-11.

    Alaska had the highest exemption rate in 2010-11, at nearly 9 percent. Colorado’s rate was 7 percent, Minnesota 6.5 percent, Vermont and Washington 6 percent.

    Mississippi was lowest, at essentially 0 percent.

    The AP found 10 states had exemption rate increases over the five years of about 1.5 percentage points or more, a range health officials say is troubling: Alaska, Kansas, Hawaii, Illinois, Michigan, Montana, Oregon, Vermont, Washington and Wisconsin.

    Commonly required vaccines Most people don’t think about polio and diphtheria these days because those diseases have been stamped out in the United States, largely because of vaccines.

    But a growing number of parents are seeking exemptions so their children don’t have to get those vaccinations and others required by most states for kids to attend school.

    Here’s a rundown of the diseases the most commonly required vaccines help prevent:

    • Polio, a paralyzing, sometimes deadly disease once seen in terrifying outbreaks, now occurring in only a few developing countries.

    • Measles, a once-common illness that causes a rash and in rare cases can be fatal. In recent years, fewer than 100 cases were seen, but that number has at least doubled this year in the U.S.

    • Mumps, a usually mild disease known for swelling the salivary glands, sometimes leading to more severe complications such as deafness or miscarriage. Nearly 2,500 cases were reported last year.

    • Rubella, or German measles, causes a rash but can trigger birth defects if acquired by a pregnant woman. Only a handful of cases are reported in the U.S. each year.

    • Pertussis, or whooping cough, a highly contagious disease that can cause violent coughing in children. Nearly 20,000 cases were reported in 2010, an unusually bad year with several infant deaths.

    • Tetanus, or lockjaw, can cause tightening of the muscles that prevents a victim from swallowing. Only a couple dozen cases have been seen in the U.S. in recent years.

    • Diphtheria, a bacterial illness that can lead to neck swelling and even death. Kids are at the greatest risk, but no confirmed case has been reported in the U.S. since 2003.

    • Hepatitis B, a viral infection that attacks the liver and can lead to liver failure or death. About 2,700 cases were reported last year.

    Vaccines for kids shirked in eight states

    "Have parents given the cold shoulder to immunizations for their kids? In eight states, more than 1 in 20 public school kindergartners fail to get all the vaccines required for attendance, according to a new Associated Press analysis. That apparent trend has health officials worried about outbreaks of diseases that once were all but eliminated.

    The analysis found that more than half of states have seen at least an uptick in the rate of exemptions in the past five years.

    It's "really gotten much worse," said Mary Selecky, secretary of health for Washington state, where 6 percent of public school parents have opted out.

    Reasons for skipping school shots vary. Some parents doubt that the vaccines are essential. Others fear vaccines are risky. Some find it easier to check a box opting out than getting the shots and taking care of the required paperwork. Still others are ambivalent, believing in older vaccines but questioning newer shots against, say, chickenpox.

    Some parents worry about the number of shots. By the time most kids are 6, they'll have been jabbed with a needle about two dozen times - with many of those shots given in infancy. The cumulative effect of those shots hasn't been studied thoroughly, some parents say. But few serious problems have turned up despite years of vaccinations, and studies have shown no link between childhood vaccines and autism.

    Overall, childhood vaccination rates remain high, at 90 percent or above for several vaccines, including those for polio, measles, hepatitis B and even chickenpox. In many states, exemptions are filed for fewer than 1 percent of kids entering school for the first time.

    Health officials have not identified an exemption threshold that would likely lead to outbreaks. But as they push for 100-percent immunization, they worry when some states' exemption rates are climbing over 5 percent. The average state exemption rate has been estimated at less than half that.

    Parents may think it does no harm to others if their kids skip some vaccines, but health officials say they're putting others at risk. No vaccine is totally effective. If an outbreak begins in an unvaccinated group of children, a vaccinated child may still be at some risk of getting sick.

    And while it seems unlikely that diseases like polio and diphtheria could mount a comeback to the U.S., CDC immunization expert Dr. Lance Rodewald said it could happen.

    For its review, the AP asked state health departments for kindergarten exemption rates for 2006-07 and 2010-11. The AP also looked at data states had previously reported to the federal government. (Most states lack data for the 2011-12 school year.)

    Exemption seekers are often middle-class, college-educated whites, but there is often a mix of views and philosophies. Exemption hot spots like Sedona, Ariz., and rural northeast Washington have concentrations of both alternative medicine-preferring as well as government-fearing libertarians.

    What many of exemption-seeking parents share, however, is a mental calculation that the dangers posed by vaccine-preventable diseases are less worrisome than the possible harms from vaccine. Or they just don't believe health officials, putting more stock in alternative sources - often discovered through Internet searches.

    Parents say they'd like to decide which vaccinations their children get, and when. Health officials reply that vaccinations are recommended at an early age to protect children before they encounter a dangerous infection. "If you delay, you're putting a child at risk," said Gerri Yett, a nurse who manages Alaska's immunization program.

    Some parent groups have pushed legislators to make exemptions easier or do away with vaccination requirements altogether. The number of states allowing philosophical exemptions grew from 15 to 20 in the last decade.

    Some in public health are exasperated by the trend. As another University of Arizona researcher, Kacey Ernst, put it, "Every time we give them evidence (that vaccines are safe), they come back with a new hypothesis" for why vaccines could be dangerous.""

    Three Vaccine Myths That Will Make Your Head Explode

    "fully vaccinated child should be one of the healthiest children in the world; however, statistics show that children are unhealthier now than ever before. Despite having as many as 68 mandated vaccines from birth to eighteen, American children are far from healthy according to statistics.

    Let us examine several reports in more detail weighing up the differences between the myths and the media reports.

    Myth #1: Whooping Cough Vaccination Prevents Children From Catching The Whooping Cough

    On December 2nd an article entitled ‘Vaccine a dud, says city doctor’ in the Queensland Times Australia, stated that a whooping cough epidemic was sweeping Australia and that many of the victims were in fact ‘fully immunized’.

    Dr Carson, a veteran of 30 years as a GP, said the current vaccine was simply not doing its job. He said:

    “The vaccine is no good; we’re seeing whooping cough in people that shouldn’t really have it, it is showing up in kids that have been vaccinated.”

    This is nothing new. Kids that have been vaccinated against whooping cough have been still getting whooping cough for years. This report from 2010 says:

    “Whooping cough is on the rise in industrialized countries, despite long-standing vaccination programmes. Now researchers from the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia, have an explanation for why: at least two strains of the bacteria that cause the infection have evolved to evade today’s vaccines”.

    In fact an interesting article can be found in ‘Emerging Infections Diseases Vol. 6, No. 5, September-October 2000,’ that states that recently vaccinated adults can infect unprotected infants.

    Pertussis Infection in Fully Vaccinated Children in Day-Care Centers, Israel “Vaccinated adolescents and adults may serve as reservoirs for silent infection and become potential transmitters to unprotected infants. The whole-cell vaccine for pertussis is protective only against clinical disease, not against infection. Therefore, even young, recently vaccinated children may serve as reservoirs and potential transmitters of infection.”

    Surprisingly data can be traced back as far back as 1970 showing that vaccinated children still contract whooping cough Hilary Butler once said:

    “I have a huge collection of newspaper articles about kids with pertussis dating from the late 70′s, and… most of them are vaccinated children.”

    In an article by Heidi Stevenson written in July of this year entitled ‘Whooping Cough Outbreaks in Vaccinated Children Become More and More Frequent’ Stevenson wrote:

    “The one thing that is apparent about whooping cough is that it’s becoming more common, and the victims are proving to be vaccinated more often than not. That, of course, doesn’t stop the vaccinators from blaming unvaccinated people for the outbreaks—though there never seems to be an adequate explanation for the claim.

    Most recently, an outbreak of whooping cough hit Smithtown, New York. Thirteen students, all of whom were vaccinated, were affected.”

    This clearly proves that it is a myth that all vaccinated children are safe from whooping cough because they are not.

    Myth #2: Flu Vaccines Protect Us From Catching The Flu

    In October this year an article in the Daily Mirror UK stated that the flu vaccination fails in 41% of adult patients. The Daily Mirror said:

    “SCIENTISTS have called for a new generation of flu vaccines after research found the most popular TIV type fails in 41% of adult cases.”

    Another report stating that flu vaccines are failing to protect us against the flu can be found on the ‘Asthma Health Care’ Blog.

    Asthma Health Care clearly states that flu vaccines do not work. They report that in a review of 51 studies involving more than 294000 children it was found there was no evidence that injecting children 6-24 months of age with a flu shot was any more effective than placebo.

    In children over 2 yrs, the vaccine was found to be effective against flu, only 33% of the time.

    These results are especially worrying because according to the CDC vaccine schedule children are given the flu vaccine every year from the age of six months.

    On the 4th December 2011 ‘The Epoch Times’ produced an eye catching article entitled ‘One Way to Prevent Flu: Catch the Flu.’ Dr John Briffa the author wrote:

    “As I wrote recently in “‘Roll up’ for the Flu Vaccine?” flu vaccination is a lot less effective than we have been led to believe. Plus, many individuals need to be vaccinated for one person to benefit. In other words, the vast majority of people who are vaccinated against flu will not benefit.”

    Dr Briffa’s article continued to highlight issues surrounding the ‘Swine Flu pandemic that never was’ in 2009. Briffa explained that there is evidence published online in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases that states that catching a previous flu infection might have helped contain the H1N1 virus and this is why so few people became ill.

    According to Briffa, “Researchers in America assessed about 500 people during 2009 and 2010. The individuals were tested for the presence of antibodies to H1N1 viruses in their blood. These were individuals who had not been vaccinated, meaning the antibodies must have come from natural contact and from infection with the flu virus.”

    Staggeringly only 33% actually became ill with H1N1 and these were the ones without antibodies. Out of all the people with the antibodies, only 18% became ill with Swine Flu . This was obviously a lot less than was expected.

    What this means is; the only real way to protect oneself from catching the flu is to have had a previous infection. explains this in far more detail and proves exactly why the flu vaccine does not work.

    Myth #3: The HPV Vaccination Protects Women Against Cervical Cancer.

    This is probably the biggest myth of all.

    To begin with the HPV vaccine is a vaccine that protects women against HPV virus’s that can lead to cervical cancer and not cervical cancer itself. There are over 100 different strains of the HPV virus and only 15 of these can lead to cervical cancer. The HPV vaccine Gardasil is only effective against 6, 11, 16 and 18 and the HPV vaccine Cervarix is only effective against types 16 and 18.

    Some professionals believe that the reason the HPV vaccine was promoted as a vaccine that could protect women against cervical cancer was to encourage sales. This was proven in a paper written by Prof Lucija Tomljenovic, PhD, Neural Dynamics Research Group, Dept. of Ophthalmology, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC in January this year. She said:

    “Merck promoted Gardasil primarily as a vaccine against cervical cancer, rather than promoting it as a vaccine against HPV infection or sexually transmitted diseases”.

    Tomljenovic then stated:

    “The fact is that malignant cervical cancer takes decades to develop 2 3 and yet the longest clinical trial on Gardasil was only four years in duration 4. In other words, Gardasil was never shown to prevent cervical cancer [emphasis added]. Furthermore, in all clinical trials conducted by Merck the cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) 2/3 precancerous lesion was used as the efficacy endpoint for evaluating the Gardasil 4. What is the problem with using the CIN 2/3 lesion as the standard for efficacy? First, if the marketing claim for Gardasil is that the vaccine “protects against cervical cancer” 1 2 5, then cervical cancer should have been used as the endpoint for efficacy, not a surrogate marker such as a CIN 2/3 precancerous lesion [emphasis added].”

    In 2006, an article appeared on the Right to Life Committee website that also stated that Gardasil did not protect against cervical cancer, however, they went a step further and stated that these vaccines also did not protect against many HPV infections either.

    These facts may be true but the media is still promoting the HPV vaccines as vaccines that protect against cervical cancer.

    Occasionally however, newspapers do tell us the truth even if they do not realize it. One article, published in July 2011 in ‘The Guardian’, appears to promote the HPV vaccinations by using the impressive title ‘Cervical cancer vaccine a success, says Lancet report,’ however, the article is full of statements saying quite the opposite. Here are a few examples:

    “Australia introduced nationwide HPV (human papilloma virus) vaccination for women aged 12 to 26 from 2007.

    While it will take many years to find out whether vaccination programmes definitely reduce the numbers of cervical cancers in the population, Australian scientists were able to analyze the results from their screening programme to find out whether there has been any drop in the number of young women with abnormal cell changes that are the precursor of cancer.”

    This is a very ambiguous quote. On the face of it this statement looks positive and it appears as if the scientists have been able to analyze data and come up with impressive results. Now read the above again because the scientists have forgotten these important facts:

    It takes ‘many years to find out whether the vaccination programmes definitely reduce the numbers of cervical cancers in the population’ and the vaccine was only introduced in 2007, which was only four years ago, therefore it is far too early to tell. The majority of the girls having the vaccine will not be sexually active. The scientists would only need to find one case less in the data that they were analyzing, to see it if there “had been any drop in the number of young women with abnormal cell changes that are the precursor of cancer.”

    Moving on, the article states:

    “Publishing in the Lancet medical journal, they report that the proportion of girls aged 17 and younger with high-grade abnormalities fell by almost half, from 0.80% to 0.42%.”

    This statement is very strange because in the UK you cannot have a smear test below the age of 25 years; however, according to this report in Australia they are giving CHILDREN smear tests! Or are they?

    Of course not, the Australian government says that all women over 18 who have ever had sex are advised to have a Pap smear every two years, even if they no longer have sex. This is because the most common type of cervical cancer usually takes up to 10 years to develop.

    The Guardian then says:

    “But there was no drop in the numbers of women with cervical abnormalities who were older than 17. This is unsurprising since the vaccine is known to be most effective if given to girls before they become sexually active.”

    This was not as ‘unsurprising‘as the article stated, because the vaccine is not a cervical cancer vaccine and therefore will not protect women against cervical cancer!!! In my opinion what the Lancet has really published is a paper full of ‘false representation’. Sadly either the Guardian have not realized this and not understood the results, or they have lied to carry on protecting Merck/GSK the manufacturers of the HPV vaccines. Here is the Guardian article Conclusion

    The truth is, vaccine after vaccine is found to be failing to do what parents expect and that is to protect our children. The Governments are lying to us, the pharmaceutical companies are lying to us and the media is lying to us. Our children are getting sicker and sicker when they should be healthier now than ever before.

    This was clearly shown in this powerful statement written in a study by Gary Null. PhD and Nancy Ashley, VMD. MS. They said:

    “It seems that we have allowed a vaccination industry to become much like military-industrial-complex– it cannot be touched, questioned, or changed…Since vaccination became commonplace from the 1950s to our present day, the health of the average American has gotten worse, and as a nation we have become sicker and sicker. Chronic fatigue, depression, allergies, asthma, attention deficit disorders, autism, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, Parkinbsons’s, Lou Gehrig’s disease, lupus, asthma, fibromyalgia, IBS – we are plagued with a host of debilitating, chronic diseases that tend not to kill us quickly, but leave us disabled and dysfunctional: dependent on the pharmaceuticals industry to keep us going. We know that we are destroying our own natural immune system by relying on vaccines to briefly and incompletely protect us against certain bacteria and viruses, but what else is happening to us by allowing ourselves to be injected with this witches’brew of degradation products? Are we too sick to notice that there is a problem? Time will tell, but how much time do we have?”

    I believe that we have all time in the world but only if we take on board that the reason the vaccines are failing to keep children healthy is to finance the pharmaceutical companies. After all, when our children are ill we go to a doctor and the doctors prescribe drugs that are manufactured by the same pharmaceutical companies that manufactured the vaccines. This proves to me that there is system in their madness.

  10. Comment:
    Are Too Many Vaccines Mandated in the USA?

    "In the latter part of September 2011 some interesting pharmaceutical information surfaced that apparently hasn’t gotten the attention it rightly deserves: Over-prescribing antipsychotic drugs for infants, toddlers, pre-teen and teenage children.

    The Citizens Commission on Human Rights International (CCHRI) posted “FDA Needs to Ban Antipsychotic Drug Use on Kids” wherein they state

    Considering that antipsychotic drugs are already documented by international drug regulatory agencies to cause not only diabetes but obesity, psychosis, blood clots, heart problems, cardiac events, seizures, toxicity, confusion, coma and stroke (and that’s just in kids) as well as brain atrophy (meaning they actually shrink brains); considering there is no medical test to prove any child has a brain malfunction, chemical imbalance or any physical condition requiring the administration of these lethal drugs—and considering these drugs are literally killing kids that have nothing medically wrong with them in the first place— Do the job you are paid by U.S. Taxpayers to do and BAN their use on children.

    To which I’d like to include and say, why stop with antipsychotic drugs when vaccines—especially DTP, MMR, HPV and vaccines containing neurotoxic mercury and aluminum plus polysorbate 80, and recombinant, foreign species, and human fetus DNA—do similar, if not worse, damage to children’s health and well being? I can hear my readers saying, “It’s the gelt, stupid!” In Yiddish, gelt mean money. Ahhhh, that probably is the driving factor since infants under two years of age are being prescribed such powerful mind-blowing drugs.

    From fall 2009 to spring of this year, 1.9 million prescriptions of Abilify alone were dispensed to patients under 18, including even 875 prescriptions for toddlers younger than 2, according to FDA research. [Emphasis added]

    The most disturbing aspect of such legalized drug pushing is, as CCHRI states,

    The new generation of antipsychotic medications has raised a wave of concerns as they are increasingly being prescribed for a host of uses and for younger and younger patients, with little conclusive research addressing their impact on children and sometimes with little evidence they work. [Emphasis added]

    That is not surprising since vaccines also are not tested for safety and/or efficacy—or producing cancer—but those public health buzz words—safety and efficacy—are based upon ‘the gospel according to Big Pharma’ and not independent and/or U.S. FDA-sponsored research/studies. FDA accepts what pharmaceutical companies pony up as science along with the massive filing fees that push drugs and vaccines through the approval process. That’s it basically!

    In essence, ‘testing’ is done when most vaccines are sold—post-marketing—as is being done in Norway with regard to the HPV vaccine. See Norwegian Institute of Public Health information here (

    Adding the proverbial “insult to injury” or “rubbing salt into a wound” type of analogy, consider what journalist Tracy Staton wrote September 27, 2011 in her article, “JAMA: Spotty results with off-label antipsychotic use”—

    Off-label use of powerful antipsychotic drugs has come in for plenty of debate in recent years. The expensive, newer-generation “atypicals” have been used to treat dementia, depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, dementia, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder…the list goes on. And all this while the Justice Department was investigating Big Pharma for off-label promotion of the drugs. [Emphasis added] ….

    Meanwhile, side effects were sometimes severe, including weight gain, metabolic problems, fatigue, urinary tract symptoms and even an increased risk of death, the researchers said.

    What a mockery of justice? The U.S. Justice Department investigating Big Pharma! Personally, I’d like to know how many Big Pharma lobbyists took Justice Department personnel out to lunch, dinner, or visited them with ‘little presents’? That’s how it works, I think, otherwise justice would be served up in favor of downsizing—or better still, preventing—infants, toddlers, and all children from becoming legal drug addicts. Or, is that what Big Pharma wants and intends? Get them any which way they can from vaccines mandated right out of the birth canal to college and beyond. Currently federal health agencies in the USA mandate a child must receive sixty-eight (68) vaccines by the time he or she goes to college.

    However, one of the issues that no one seems to be considering except those of us who are considered ‘vaccine conspiracy theorists’ or, as I prefer, vaccine safety advocates, the very issue of mental health anomalies—ADD, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, etc.—did not become pandemic in U.S. children until vaccines were doubled in the 1980s and subsequently tripled.

    Miller and Goldman meticulously documented in their paper “Infant mortality rates regressed against number of vaccine doses routinely given: Is there a biochemical or synergistic toxicity?” published in Human and Experimental Toxicology on May 4, 2011 , and yet no one in any federal U.S. health agency, that I know, is rushing to ‘see what it’s all about’. Why?

    I think every parent in the USA ought to print out the Miller-Goldman paper and take it to their children’s pediatrician—MD, state and local school district boards, members of Congress and demand to know why they should be mandated to submit their children to vaccination that set up kids for probable short and long-term health adverse effects when, in reality, demographics tell a horribly sad story about vaccine damage and death.

    But one state, North Carolina, seems to be getting on the ball about children’s health matters. In a press release dated October 24, 2011, “N.C. Medicaid Goes Online to Monitor Kids’ Mental Health Drugs,” they say

    N.C. Medicaid has launched a new, high-tech program to safeguard the health of children prescribed antipsychotic medications, while shaving an estimated $30 million from the state’s Medicaid budgets over the next five years.

    In 2010, more than 20,000 N.C. Medicaid enrollees under age 18 were prescribed an antipsychotic medication, at a cost exceeding $40 million.

    I guess that’s what it really is about: GELT! Saving $30 million in North Carolina Medicaid budgets in just five years—OMG! So what can that amount to in the other 49 states in the nation? I don’t think my calculator can accommodate such calculations.

    North Carolina’s chief medical officer for that state’s Medicaid program said, “The clinical concern with the frequent use of antipsychotic medications in children is nationwide.” That’s the problem, as I see it being a consumer healthcare researcher. No one is doing anything about it, except North Carolina. If anyone knows differently, please let me know, as I surely would like to congratulate that state and work with anyone to undo the injustice done to infants, toddlers, and children of all ages—including geriatric kids.

    North Carolina says that other states have begun to contact them about this problem. May I suggest that my readers send this article with the working links to their state representatives in their state capitols to get the antipsychotic Medicaid debacle investigation going. While you’re at it, please tell them similar shenanigans are going on with vaccines, Big Pharma’s and the U.S. CDC and FDA’s ‘sacred cows’.

    There is something that would make my day, and that is if—no, when—states start to step back and take a sincere and objective look at the BIG time money problems vaccines are causing their Medicaid programs. I compare that type of problem to the perfect Hegelian Dialectic being foisted upon states by Big Pharma: Create the problem/need, for which the public demands relief, and implement the relief plan that was built in as the answer when the problem was created in the beginning by those who either want control or have vested interests.

    Isn’t it quite apparent what’s going on? How come those who should be seeing and investigating this type of child abuse—how about calling it ‘pharmaceutical rape’—are not? I guess gelt does a lot more than purchase the necessities of life; it just may make lies and mandates easier to perpetrate under the guise of healthcare, I guess.

    Gelt also makes your pediatrician’s day worth his while, as Tim Bolen reports in his article “Want To Keep Your Baby Healthy? Stay Away From Pediatricians…” wherein he ‘disses’ on the commissions pediatricians receive for pushing vaccines. Bolen’s information may be difficult to swallow—or believe—but Tim’s figures come directly from reliable sources:

    Take a look at this chart link for pediatricians, put together by As you can quickly see a salaried Pediatrician, in the US, makes somewhere between $68,654 to $169,517. BUT, add on “Commissions” (vaccine pushing) and that income range changes radically. For, as the chart shows, “Commissions” can range from $293.61 to $352,694.

    Are there too many vaccines and vaccinations in the U.S.? Not as far as your child’s pediatrician may be concerned. The more Big Pharma can produce, the more he or she will pump into your child with sad results, as every demographic indicates since pediatricians bought into Big Pharma’s hype about supposed immunology. Ask any medical student what he or she learned in medical school about vaccines. You will be greatly surprised. What MDs really learn is on-the-job training from the pharmaceutical reps who ply their wares in a manner similar to the traveling salesmen of old, only they were hawking life’s necessities."

    Health Freedom,

    Here is a supplement to your post on Merck and their Vioxx Suits. It's a partial list of the 36 physicians Merck targeted to neutralize or discredit, regarding Vioxx, and the doctor's own moral principles.

    I know it's a lot to read, but it sure shows the desperation of the pharmaceutical companies and the lengths they'll go for the almighty dollar! (And at the expense of the lives of their fellow human beings to boot!) Thoroughly disgusting!!


    Gibofsky, Allan

    Highly influential physician at HSS, officer in ACR. Staunch Searle advocate, used often for speaker programs. Likes to use his law degree to intimidate physicians in the audience-will often suggest that not using a certain product is like committing malpractice. Very skeptical of data for VIOXX. Feels that we are hiding our safety data for the 50 mg dose. Very difficult for the HSA to work with.


    Goldstein, Jay

    Member of the GI department; member of the Adverse Reaction Committee for Celebrex; spoken on several occasions; presentations are biased and sometimes contain inaccurate information; shown extreme indifference to correcting his information; definitely anti-Merck; has national impact as Pfizer and Searle are scheduling him all over the country; works very closely with Searle and will deliver biased messages in Searle sponsored events but is balanced at GRs, etc.; met with Greg Bell; will present data for VIOXX at GRs; good advocate for the class; would proceed with caution in using as a speaker or in giving research grants, unsure of how he would handle results; needs similar treatment to Lee Simon based on close relationship to Searle


    Hamburger, Max ADVOCATE

    Financial support of private practice rheumatology IPA - (has taken place) Has been turned around.


    Kay, Jonathan NEUTRALIZED

    Speaking extensively for Searle; national/regional speaker (>30 talks in the last six months); in a recent talk, deliberately said he could not speak about VIOXX because the drug was not approved, then discussed key competitive points for Celebrex and their disadvantages to VIOXX (limited their weaknesses); wants info on our strategies for formularies/pricing; got Celebrex on Lahey Clinic formulary; asked for studies and information we can't get; irritated that he was not contacted for more studies for VIOXX, but MRL concerned with ability to enroll patients; reputation for being bought by Searle; more balanced in presentations in the past and responds that he has not received information on VIOXX; turned down the Laguna Nigel meeting; advocate for FOSAMAX, worked well in the past with Merck; helped draft NDA filing for Celebrex; recently picked up for MK-663 which has improved his attitude; excellent speaker, very COX-2 positive; need to support endeavors with Lahey Clinic, such as Rheumatology Rounds; good friends with Bruce Freundlich; very credible; cannot afford to lose him; using him as a speaker should greatly improve the situation


    MacMillan, James DISCREDIT

    Strong recommendation to discredit him


    Simon, Lee

    BACKGROUND PROVIDED BY A&A SPECIALISTS (with additional comments from National HSAs, RMDs. TBG, etc.) National speaker on C-2SIs; long-standing relationship with Searle due to pre-launch work on celecoxib; helped write NDA for celecoxib; extremely pro-COX-2, emphasizes their superiority in talks; can hurt us if not involved with us; scheduled for almost 150 talks (primarily Searle/Pfizer) nationally and volume of one-sided messages of concern; has softened his messages with slides on VIOXX and updates on our FDA advisory meeting; included in two local dinner programs to date; very pleased with his involvement but would still like to be a part of the science and information process; wants to be involved in a clinical trial and wants slides; insatiable desire to be the most informed person and loves "inside" information; recently voiced strong opinions about weakness of data for VIOXX; not a candidate for MK-663 or MK-966 RA; Merck advocate for Fosamax and friends with Lou and Bruce; would be a serious mistake to involve him in our science; more balanced presentations recently; HSA has worked extensively with him; Bruce, Charlotte and Caroline have spent time getting to know him better and understand how to work with him; Elliot met with him the week of June 28 - message from Lou was effective, concerned about way he was being


    Stillman, Tom

    Rheumatologist, had been a member of Advisory Board for Merck, very opinionated and stubborn, speaking for Searle/Pfizer and concentrating on adverse renal effects of Vioxx, believes greater selectivity of Vioxx = higher propensity for renal side effects, has met with Greg Bell to discuss issues, still has not changed his opinion, 60+ talks scheduled for Searle/Pfizer, sees himself as being very positive toward COX-2 class but tends to point out what he believes are negative effects of Vioxx, had been scheduled to do talks for local reps post-launch but all were cancelled by reps, was very upset by this action, wants to spin sulfonamide issue


    Williams, Gary NEUTRALIZED

    Nationally recognized speaker and thought leader; has spoken for the ACR and hospital grand rounds programs nationally; involved as a keynote speaker for Searle and Pfizer in the launch of Celebrex; participated in a number of COX-2 talks for Celebrex and has done extensive climcal research for Searle, but he has remained very balanced and neutral; self-proclaimed COX-2 advocate; expressed interest in working with Merck and VIOXX; Scripps Institute, the most influential managed care organization in San Diego, has a long history as a leader in the area of arthritis and rheumatic diseases; Scripps is the largest medical group in San Diego and, therefore, targeting Dr. Williams will assist us in obtaining favorable formulary status


    Zalkowitz, Alan

    #1 Celebrex writer in Northern NJ and #4 in NE; regional impact; active investigator and speaker for Searle; says he has been treated very well by them; will speak for us only at certain restaurants and high honorarium; enrolled in Advantage (not happy with how he was treated; said the meeting in Miami lacked class, had no good speakers, was a waste of time, and felt as though a lot of his questions were left unanswered; Searle investigator meetings were 100% better, more educational/informative, addressed physicians' needs and superior accommodations; will forgive us for "this one mistake", but expects to be treated better; several preceptorships for both arthritis and FOSAMAX; likes to feel important, to be informed, and to associate with important people; thought leader within large group practice and also in the community/state; receptive to preceptorships; Chief of Rheum for several years at Valley Hosp. in Ridgewood, NJ; new Chief is David Arbit, partner in his practice; another member of their group, Jeffrey Danzig recently took over his role as Pres, of NJ Assoc, in Medicine and does consulting for several large HMOs

    As we discussed, attached is the list of "problem" physicians that we must, at a minimum, neutralize. Thanks to your group for submitting this information. I will circulate the attached spreadsheet to my team, Bruce Lesser, Greg Bell, and Bruce Freundlich for their comments and recommendations.

    We have many opportunities to get these individuals involved, including but not limited to the following (some of which are just ideas right now): Research - CDP, MK-0663 National Consultants' Meetings - 3Q99 and 4Q99 Grants/HEL Programs * CME Program Faculty Training Medical School Grants Personal Contact - RMD, MRL, Senior Sales Management, TBG Peer-to-Peer InteractionA/isiting Consultantship

    * Spend a day at Rahway and meet Team VIOXX

    Other Consulting Activities - publications, slide development, advisory boards, smaller consultants' meetings, etc. We'll keep these individuals top of mind for any upcoming programs and activities, but we need to find out exactly what's needed and then put in place a specific action plan. It is our hope that the initial visits you are setting up with each of these individuals will help guide our course of action to maximize our impact.

    Let me know if you have any questions or additional suggestions. I'll be in touch.

    Point RMDs for VIOXX:

    I thought you should be aware of our most challenging (and also some of the most vocal and influential) national and regional physicians for VIOXX. The attached document lists 36 physicians who the National HSAs and A&A Specialty Representatives have identified as being:

    1) Important from a business perspective in terms of influence and/or prescribing, and

    2) Not as supportive of Merck and/or VIOXX as we would like.

    As noted in the attached document, some of these physicians have already been "neutralized". You may have already met with the identified physicians in your RBG. If you have not, it might be valuable to develop a relationship with these key customers. Please contact the National HSA or Specialty Representative listed first in the Point Responsibility column for an update and for assistance in contacting and working with these important physicians. Please let me know if you need any additional information.

    Thank you,

    Susan- I've recently spoken to S Lindsey, Rollie Moscowitz and Len Calabrese- discussed data in some capacity with each- think they may come around at least to neutral

    I also have communicated with Gibofsky who is helping me get on an ACR Comm. Altman has a grant pending-1 took him to diner 2 mth ago and showed him the Vi dat-l hear he is more neutral now when talks locally, but gave very biased talk in Pitt for HEL but OK the next day for grand rds

    I heard that Simon had been mostly fairly balanced- after I met with him and gave him slides, went over databut post launch he apparently became more desparate

    McMillan- met with and fired a shot across the bow as Lou Sherwood would say- but he bashed Vioxx a few days later- some docs have told us that he is so biased that he is has poor credibility and does not do a service to Searle- maybe worse things could happen I went over data with Mandel- his grant proposal was not very good I know several other docs incl- Kaye and Berney- If you ever need me to meet with them

    Health Freedom:

    Thank you for sharing the Olympian story - it gives some helpful data showing how effective vaccination has been in controlling infectious disease and it provides a clear warning of the dangers associated with vaccine refusal.

    As to your other copy pasta, it will have to wait until Monday (by which time I'm sure you will have added even more).

    In the meantime, perhaps you could share some of that debunking evidence you keep referring to?

    Cc: Davis, Pattj L.; Freundlich, Bruce

    Subject: Nov. 3rd Appointment / James McMilien

    The following is information that Susan & Leo requested regarding Dr. James McMilien. I hope this will provide some insight.


    If you would like a copy of Dr. McMillen"s CV, please provide your fax # & I will fax it ASAP.

    Claims to be a Board Certified Rheumatologist

    * Claims affiliation with the Dept of Rheumatology @ The Hershey Med. Ctr

    Has been in clinical practice for approximately 25 years

    * Clinical researcher for 23 years for various Companies

    * Currently affiliated with Searle in the following capacity:

    > Speaking engagements 200 days per year (approx. 400-500 programs)
    > Conducts Speaker Training teleconferences
    > Conducts Sales Rep Training teleconferences
    > Primary Clinical Investigator

    Dr. McMillen's Position on Vioxx

    Please refer to separate E-mails for messages Dr. McMilien is delivering regarding Vioxx. The Vioxx message has been consistently negative. He has been somewhat receptive to coaching & feedback. However, he hasnt followed through on negotiated commitments.

    Legal Issue

    We need to neutralize this Physician as quickly as possible. As you can see the negative position Dr. McMillen has taken has been detrimental to the growth of Vioxx. His presentations are filled with inaccurate information regarding the research & performance of Vioxx. Dr. McMillen fails to utilize any Merck provided information or slides to portray Vioxx positively.

    Every tool has been used to plant the seed of doubt.

    I feel legal proceedings are only a matter of time. Until that point, it would be helpful if we could communicate Merck's position in a legal letter.

    This could be a factor in neutralizing him.

    SKB has filed a lawsuit against Dr. McMillen based upon his previous position taken toward SKB & Relafen. He currently doesnt mention SKB or Relafen in his presentations.

    Merck Strategy to Date

    * We had direction from the Vioxx TBG to refrain from communicating with Dr. McMillen pre-launch.

    * He's an investigator with our 088 Mucosa Trial Study.

    Post-launch, our strategy has been to coach him and provide the necessary information to have more balance in his presentations.

    Dr. McMillen has been receptive to coaching, however, I feel he's just telling us what we want to hear.

    Dr. McMillen was set to study our 2nd generation Cox-2, until he was informed that his participation in the clinical trial was not needed.
    We have had appointments on July 19th & September 13th. Both appointments showed some progress, but with limited results.

    * Negative feedback has been consistent from OBR's, A&A Specialist's & Physicians.

    November 3rd Appointment
    Time: 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM (lunch included)
    Location: Harrisburg Hilton.
    Purpose: Final attempt to provide accurate Vioxx clinical results to create fair balance in Dr. McMillen's presentations.

    Travel: Departure from West Point @ 8:00 AM / return to West Point @
    approximately 4:00 PM. (I will drive)
    Agenda: 10:00 - 12:00PM Vioxx data review
    12:00-12:30 Lunch
    12:30 -1:30 McMillen presentation
    1:30 - 2:00 Re-cap & review of presentation
    2:15 - Depart for West Point

    It will be critical that we communicate to Dr. McMillen that this will be our final visit. The rest is up to him. If we continue to receive negative feedback, it will be out of our hands. If you have any questions or input on how we should proceed, please contact me. Thank you for your help in advance regarding this delicate situation.

    So, all the wining and dining, planting of seeds, coaching, neutralizing, discrediting, etc. for a drug, (Vioxx) that is linked to more than 27,000 heart attacks or sudden cardiac deaths nationwide from the time it came on the market in 1999 through 2003.

    Critics describe the rise and fall of Vioxx as a cautionary tale of masterful public relations, aggressive marketing and ineffective regulation. "The FDA didn't do anything," says Eric Topol, chief of cardiovascular medicine at the Cleveland Clinic. "They were passive here."

    Susan, I apologize, Leo had left a recap message on MVX for everyone & I thought you were on his list.

    The meeting was somewhat productive. Dr. McMilien was open to coaching & we reviewed his entire slide presentation. He was open to the necessary changes we recommended. However, I question whether he will change his presentation tactics. We made it perfectly clear that this was our last visit. The rest was up to him.

    Everyone from Merck who attended played an instrumental role in the meeting. Thank you for your time & efforts regarding this delicate situation.

    Monsanto Now Owns Blackwater (Xe)

    A report by Jeremy Scahill in The Nation (Blackwater’s Black Ops, 9/15/2010) revealed that the largest mercenary army in the world, Blackwater (now called Xe Services) clandestine intelligence services was sold to the multinational Monsanto. Blackwater was renamed in 2009 after becoming famous in the world with numerous reports of abuses in Iraq, including massacres of civilians. It remains the largest private contractor of the U.S. Department of State “security services,” that practices state terrorism by giving the government the opportunity to deny it.

    Many military and former CIA officers work for Blackwater or related companies created to divert attention from their bad reputation and make more profit selling their nefarious services-ranging from information and intelligence to infiltration, political lobbying and paramilitary training – for other governments, banks and multinational corporations. According to Scahill, business with multinationals, like Monsanto, Chevron, and financial giants such as Barclays and Deutsche Bank, are channeled through two companies owned by Erik Prince, owner of Blackwater: Total Intelligence Solutions and Terrorism Research Center. These officers and directors share Blackwater.

    One of them, Cofer Black, known for his brutality as one of the directors of the CIA, was the one who made contact with Monsanto in 2008 as director of Total Intelligence, entering into the contract with the company to spy on and infiltrate organizations of animal rights activists, anti-GM and other dirty activities of the biotech giant.

    Contacted by Scahill, the Monsanto executive Kevin Wilson declined to comment, but later confirmed to The Nation that they had hired Total Intelligence in 2008 and 2009, according to Monsanto only to keep track of “public disclosure” of its opponents. He also said that Total Intelligence was a “totally separate entity from Blackwater.”

    However, Scahill has copies of emails from Cofer Black after the meeting with Wilson for Monsanto, where he explains to other former CIA agents, using their Blackwater e-mails, that the discussion with Wilson was that Total Intelligence had become “Monsanto’s intelligence arm,” spying on activists and other actions, including “our people to legally integrate these groups.” Total Intelligence Monsanto paid $ 127,000 in 2008 and $ 105,000 in 2009.

    No wonder that a company engaged in the “science of death” as Monsanto, which has been dedicated from the outset to produce toxic poisons spilling from Agent Orange to PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls), pesticides, hormones and genetically modified seeds, is associated with another company of thugs.

    Almost simultaneously with the publication of this article in The Nation, the Via Campesina reported the purchase of 500,000 shares of Monsanto, for more than $23 million by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which with this action completed the outing of the mask of “philanthropy.” Another association that is not surprising.

    It is a marriage between the two most brutal monopolies in the history of industrialism: Bill Gates controls more than 90 percent of the market share of proprietary computing and Monsanto about 90 percent of the global transgenic seed market and most global commercial seed. There does not exist in any other industrial sector monopolies so vast, whose very existence is a negation of the vaunted principle of “market competition” of capitalism. Both Gates and Monsanto are very aggressive in defending their ill-gotten monopolies.

    Although Bill Gates might try to say that the Foundation is not linked to his business, all it proves is the opposite: most of their donations end up favoring the commercial investments of the tycoon, not really “donating” anything, but instead of paying taxes to the state coffers, he invests his profits in where it is favorable to him economically, including propaganda from their supposed good intentions. On the contrary, their “donations” finance projects as destructive as geoengineering or replacement of natural community medicines for high-tech patented medicines in the poorest areas of the world. What a coincidence, former Secretary of Health Julio Frenk and Ernesto Zedillo are advisers of the Foundation.

    Like Monsanto, Gates is also engaged in trying to destroy rural farming worldwide, mainly through the “Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa” (AGRA). It works as a Trojan horse to deprive poor African farmers of their traditional seeds, replacing them with the seeds of their companies first, finally by genetically modified (GM). To this end, the Foundation hired Robert Horsch in 2006, the director of Monsanto. Now Gates, airing major profits, went straight to the source.

    Blackwater, Monsanto and Gates are three sides of the same figure: the war machine on the planet and most people who inhabit it, are peasants, indigenous communities, people who want to share information and knowledge or any other who does not want to be in the aegis of profit and the destructiveness of capitalism.

    Robert Gallo, the US scientist who is accredited with discovering AIDS some 30 years ago was actually the man who created it.

    After forging a close relationship with the US military he worked with them to develop a disease which could be used as a biological weapon - or as we've now discovered a means of controlling population expansion.

    @Health Freedom: Thank you so much for the kinds words! And for all you've posted here. I normally spend some time in situations like this posting much of the information you have and thank you for beating me to it so I don't have to. You've sufficiently kicked Mr. Gavin's arse. I don't feel any need to reply to him as he's his own worst enemy and makes himself look ridiculous enough without anyone really needing to do much.

    I will clear up one thing though since he's too dense to get it. Somewhere in here he said something about the fact that though the IOM report mentions brain inflammation as a possble contributing factor in autism (I think, this isn't verbatim) the IOM report doesn't mention vaccines as a possible cause of said brain inflammation. The intent of my prior post was that anyone with half a brain, a computer and the will to find the truth can find a multitude of published evidence clearly linking vaccinations to chronic hypoxia, brain inflammation, encephalopathy, encephalitis, whatever other word you might want to use. It's been documented since the 50's, possibly even the 40's. It is utterly absurd to me that anti-choicers can't see this blatant, in your face, FACT. Keep ignoring it like it isn't there and maybe it will go away. Sorry peeps, it won't. It's what killed my daughter and it's what is permanently damaging so many others.

    Keep spreading your truth Health Freedom. That's what this is all about. Your user name. Health Freedom. Something I'm willing to die for. I very reluctantly and against my intuition fully vaccinated my daughter. She would have been 17 this coming February 3rd. Rather than becoming less painful, it becomes more painful over time as I look around at others and see all of the things I've missed out on by not having her in my life for all of this time. The reason I went against my intution and vaccinated her was because I was young, naive and believed that I had no choice in the matter. I didn't know it was my choice. And I also believed the propaganda around me. There was a huge billboard in my town which read "Immunize on Time Every Time" with a picture of a baby on it. So, I did just that. Despite her deteriorating health after each and every stupid "Well Baby Visit". What a joke those are. All I can say is this, don't worry Mr. Gavin, though I'm not posting my references here because quite frankly I don't have the time, my 15 years of research will be compiled into a book. I'm almost done. And that's going to be my big "up yours" to pHARMa, all anti-choicers, and those responsible for my daughter's death. I guess the bigger "up yours" is the fact that I have such a healthy, vibrant, unvaccinated teenager who sailed through chickenpox and pertussis while his vaccinated peers still got the disease and had a horrible time!!! Take that you paranoid freaks!

    Vaccinate the World: Gates, Rockefeller Seek Global Population Reduction

    "The global elite has launched a world-wide operation against an unaware population to reduce and control fertility. Vaccines and even staple food crops have been modified to achieve these goals.

    If you can’t seem to bring yourself to believe that such an undertaking is possible, or that there are human beings willing and capable; Look back in time, this kind of conspiracy isn’t new, in fact this kind of control was idealized by Plato some 2,300 years ago in his momentous work The Republic. Plato wrote that a ruling elite should guide society, “…whose aim will be to preserve the average of population.” He further stated, “There are many other things which they will have to consider, such as the effects of wars and diseases and any similar agencies, in order as far as this is possible to prevent the State from becoming either too large or too small.”

    The activities of the ruling elite in controlling population, writes Plato, must be kept secret. He writes, “Now these goings on must be a secret which the rulers only know, or there will be a further danger of our herd… breaking out into rebellion.”

    Peering back into the mists of time and history reveal that there is truly nothing new under the sun. What has been done will be done again, and the 21st Century manifestation of global elites have advanced tools at their disposal.

    The GAVI Alliance (Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization)

    The GAVI Alliance, founded in 2000 with the help of the Gates Foundation, has the goal of vaccinating all of the third world. The member organizations of GAVI are listed on group’s the website, which include:

    “…national governments of donor and developing countries, the Bill and Melinda Gates Children’s Vaccine Program, the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers Associations (IFPMA), the Rockefeller Foundation, UNICEF, the World Bank Group and the World Health Organization (WHO).”

    In December of 2000, David Rockefeller and William H. Gates Sr., among others, (pictured to the right) visited the Rockefeller University campus to take part in a meeting on “Philanthropy in a Global Century”. While there, Gates spoke glowingly about his inspiration from Rockefeller in founding GAVI,

    “Gates said that ‘Taking our lead and our inspiration from work already done by The Rockefeller Foundation, our foundation actually started GAVI by pledging $750 million to something called the Global Fund for Children’s Vaccines, an instrument of GAVI.’”

    He also praised the Rockefeller family’s century of philanthropy, saying, ‘It seems like every new corner we turn, the Rockefellers are already there. And in some cases, they have been there for a long, long time.’”

    The fact that such a global mechanism like GAVI exists – in the hands of outspoken population control advocates – for delivering vaccines to millions of people across the world should be disconcerting to say the least; Especially when confronted with the mountains of documentation proving that anti-fertility vaccines have been researched and delivered by the World Health Organization with grant money from the Rockefeller Foundation.

    Bill Gates reaffirmed the global population control agenda during a recent TED conference presentation in which he stated,

    “The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s heading up to about nine billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.”

    Anti-fertility vaccines

    As Jurriaan Maessen reports, the World Health Organization, one of GAVI’s partners, teamed up with the World Bank and UN Population Fund in the 1970′s under the “Task Force on Vaccines for Fertility Regulation”. The Task Force,

    “…acts as a global coordinating body for anti-fertility vaccine R&D in the various working groups and supports research on different approaches, such as anti-sperm and anti-ovum vaccines and vaccines designed to neutralize the biological functions of hCG. The Task Force has succeeded in developing a prototype of an anti-hCG-vaccine.”

    In 1989 research was conducted by the National Institute of Immunology in New Delhi India on the use of ‘carriers’ such as Tetanus Toxoid and Diphtheria to bypass the immune system and deliver the female hormone called human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG). The research paper was carried in the Oxford University Press in 1990 and was titled “Bypass by an alternate ‘carrier’ of acquired unresponsiveness to hCG upon repeated immunization with tetanus-conjugated vaccine.” The

    Edible vaccines, according to the Indian Journal of Medical Microbiology, will be a more “socioculturally acceptable” alternative to needles

    Rockefeller Foundation is listed in the document as giving grants for the research.

    By delivering hCG within a Tetanus vaccine – which acts as the carrier – the human body treats hCG as an intruder and creates antibodies against it. This has the effect of sterilizing women who receive the vaccine, and in many cases miscarriage when given during pregnancy.

    Soon after anti-fertility vaccines were successfully developed, hCG (Human chorionic gonadotrophin) containing Tetanus vaccines were deployed across multiple third-world countries. Many of these countries were specifically targeted in the U.S. Government’s 1974 National Security Memorandum 200 document for population reduction. The document recommended at the time in 1974 that “injectable contraceptives” receive further funding.

    In the aftermath of widespread covert use of anti-fertility vaccines, the BBC aired a documentary titled “The Human Laboratory” in 1995 (transcript available here). The discovery of “contaminated” Tetanus toxoid vaccines and the resulting sterilization of Philippine women was exposed.

    The following are excerpts from the BBC program:

    MARY PILAR VERZOSA: The women would say why is it that the tetanus shots that we’ve been getting have had effects on us? Our fertility cycles are all fouled up, some of the women among us have had bleedings and miscarriages, some have lost their babies at a very early stage. The symptoms could come soon after their tetanus vaccination – some the following day, others within a week’s time. For those who were pregnant on their first three or four months the miscarriage was really frightening.

    MARY PILAR VERZOSA: I began to suspect that here in the Philippines that’s exactly what’s happening. They have laced the tetanus toxoid vials with the Beta HCG.

    …MARY PILAR VERZOSA: Oh boy that was really something when this came out of my fax machine. Report on HCG concentration in vaccine vials. Three out of those four vials registered positive for HCG, so my suspicions are affirmed that here in our country they are not only giving plain tetanus toxoid vaccination to our women, they are also giving anti-fertility.

    According to the local population of the Akha in Thailand, pregnant women are forced to receive vaccines – including tetanus – in order to get ID cards for their children. The vaccine often results with miscarriage. In the video below, Matthew McDaniel, a human rights activist who has been working with the Akha people of Thailand, speaks with two Akha women about the forced Tetanus vaccine and the resulting miscarriages.

    Rural populations of the third world have caught on to possible effects of vaccination. Their fears are dismissed as “rumors” and “myths” by the mainstream press that fails to report on the established precedence of anti-fertility vaccine research. Often, those reassuring that the vaccines are safe are the very organizations engaged in population reduction efforts. A 2006 press release from UNICEF (United Nations Children Fund), which is involved with vaccinating many third world countries, quotes the Assistant Project Officer for Health in Ethiopia’s Southern Nations, Tersit Assefa,

    “In other places, women of this age often stay away,” said Ms. Tersit. “All sorts of misguided rumours go round that the injections will sterilize them or harm them in some way. But here, the village elders are on board. They are here, encouraging the women to come along.”

    While the needle is an obvious and visible form of vaccination, new technologies have been developed with the financial support of the Rockefeller Foundation. Edible vaccines, according to the Indian Journal of Medical Microbiology, will be a more “socioculturally acceptable” alternative to needles. In other words, people will be less resistant to eating a mundane banana than taking a shot in the arm. The Journal states that new edible vaccine technology may serve a dual purpose of birth control. As stated,

    “Edible vaccines hold great promise as a cost-effective, easy-to-administer, easy-to-store, fail-safe and socioculturally readily acceptable vaccine delivery system, especially for the poor developing countries… A variety of delivery systems have been developed. Initially thought to be useful only for preventing infectious diseases, it has also found application in prevention of autoimmune diseases, birth control, etc…”

    The war against population is an ongoing effort on part of the global elite. This operation is truly massive in scope, but if we live our lives in fear of what the future may bring, we allow ourselves to be defeated. Let your awareness of the situation drive you to make positive changes. We still have the power to raise awareness among our fellow man, and despite what the elite may believe, they do not have a monopoly on the future."

    The Age of Treason: 1958 Book Exposes Chemical Attack on Humanity

    Old-Thinker News | August 19, 2010

    By Daniel Taylor

    Dr. R. Swinburne Clymer was in many ways a man ahead of his time, and most certainly controversial. He was attacked by the medical establishment for connecting diet with disease and mental health in his 1917 book Dietetics. Dr. Clymer received his medical degree in 1902 from the College of Medicine and Surgery in Chicago and began practicing Osteopathy. Accusations of fraud surround Dr. Clymer’s career, including this 1923 edition of the Journal of the American Medical Association which claims that, “Our records fail to show that this man was ever regularly graduated by any reputable medical college.” What Clymer had to say more than likely had something to do with the denouncement that he received from the medical establishment.

    Though Dr. Clymer may be surrounded with controversy, his 1958 book Your Health and Sanity in the Age of Treason exposes toxic food additives and fluoride with documentation – the majority of which are mainstream scientific studies – that can be verified many times over. What makes this book unique is the fact that Dr. Clymer was one of the first to point out that statements by the elite indicated that these toxins were to be deliberately released “…for the mental deterioration and moral debasement of the mass…”

    The book is appropriately subtitled; “Food and Liquids Used as a Medium in Deliberately and Carefully Planned Methods Developed by the Vicious Element of Humanity, for the Mental Deterioration and Moral Debasement of the Mass, as a Means Toward Their Enslavement.”

    Dr. Clymer introduces readers with a stark warning for the future, writing, “Imagine yourself if you can, becoming conscious that you are gradually losing your manhood; that your mind is rapidly deteriorating so that you are no longer capable of thinking clearly; unable to plan your future actions. Your resistance is becoming so weakened that you are no longer master of yourself. In short, you are rapidly developing into a moron, a robot, a zombie, readily subject to the dictates of others…”

    Bertrand Russell’s 1953 book The Impact of Science on Society is cited by Clymer as one example of the elite’s desire to dominate the masses. Russell stated that under scientific tyranny, “Diet, injections, and injunctions will combine, from a very early age, to produce the sort of character and the sort of beliefs that the authorities consider desirable, and any serious criticism of the powers that be will become psychologically impossible.”

    Diethylstilbestrol – Endocrine Disruption

    Dr. Clymer identified the synthetic estrogen Diethylstilbestrol – developed in 1938 – as a means to achieve the aims of the elite. Clymer explains that some of the toxic additives discussed in the book may not have been employed for the express purpose outlined by the elite, but “…they served their purpose admirably…” Dr. Clymer elaborates,

    “The employment of Stilbestrol by the laity with absolutely no knowledge of the dangerous agent they are employing, in conditioning chickens and meats, is mass medication without license, with a dangerous toxic drug that may have universal disastrous results on all who eat such adulterated foods. This is especially true as it concerns children, youths, young women and men, resulting as it may, in their sterilization or cancer – something fervently hoped for by the enemies of mankind.”

    Because Stilbestrol is a synthetic chemical, “…the natural protective activity of the bodily organs are ineffective in prohibiting harmful results. Natural Estrogen, on the other hand, is decomposed, and any of its possible harmful effects may be more or less made ineffective,” writes Dr. Clymer. Stilbestrol was used as a treatment for various types of cancer and menopausal symptoms, but as Dr. Clymer states, “Physicians versed in the use of Endocrines agree generally that Stilbestrol is a dangerous drug in all except experienced hands.”

    Dr. E. Malcolm Stokes, in an article published in the Western Journal of Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology, September 1948, wrote: “Single large doses of [natural] estrogen substances are quickly excreted… long continued, repeated administration in relatively small doses [as in daily consumption of meats permeated with stilbestrol] may intensify tissue response to the hormone.”

    Dr. Clymer warns that such chemicals are to feminize men,

    “Every vigilant human being should be concerned with several important factors involved: The methods or means by which it is possible to change man’s characteristics as easily as the animal’s. Man is a warrior by nature, the protector of his family, and his own rights and privileges; an individual, a free man… A being who has wrought great things and who, if not interfered with, will do even greater things. This being is to be turned into a lesser female; unable, even unwilling, to defend himself, much less his family or country; becoming a slave…”

    Dr. Clymer’s concerns over Stilbestrol have been vindicated over time, as the chemical has been phased out of use as a growth hormone in the late 1970′s due to concerns over cancer. Additionally, in 1971 the FDA advised physicians to stop prescribing Stilbestrol to pregnant women due to high cancer risk. The drug is no longer being manufactured as of 1997.

    Flashforward – Bisphenol A

    Today there are continuing concerns as substantial levels of Bisphenol A (BPA) have been found in a large percentage of the western world’s population. Like Diethylstilbestrol, BPA is a synthetic estrogen with similar to identical effects on the human body. BPA is perhaps a much larger threat due to the fact that unlike Stilbestrol – which was primarily consumed in meats – it is found in many household products, including the food we eat. A recent study from the Canadian Health Measures Survey found that over 90% of Canadians have detectable concentrations of BPA in their urine. Studies conducted by the CDC found Bisphenol A in the urine of 95% of adults sampled in 1988–1994 and in 93% of children and adults tested in 2003–04. Other studies have shown that Bisphenol A causes feminization of males and reduced sperm count.

    As Dr. Frederick vom Saal states in this local Fox News report, levels of BPA below a trillionth of a gram have been found to alter cell function and growth. Additionally, BPA was found to feed cancer cell growth and impact the reproductive system of rats.


    Yet another danger to human health and well being identified by Dr. Clymer is Sodium Fluoride. Fluoride, we are told, is placed in the water supply to help protect our teeth from decay. Today some are proposing that fluoride and other forms of mass medication will serve as a means of “Cognitive Enhancement.” In his expose of fluoride, Dr. Clymer quotes Rene M. Vale, a former Communist and party worker in her book Red Court, published in 1952. She writes,

    “In regions of the country where resistance was most apt to develop we saw to it that virus diseases struck, and when antibiotics threatened our program, we devised other means of vitiating the populace. Fluoridation of drinking water was found to be about the most successful…”

    Dr. Charles E. Perkins, who Dr. R. Swinburne Clymer was in personal contact with, was, “… sent by the United States Government to help take charge of the I. G. Farben chemical plants in Germany at the end of the second world war. What follows are quotations from a letter which Mr. Perkins wrote to the Lee Foundation for Nutritional Research, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, dated October 2, 1954.”

    Mr. Perkins letter states,

    “The German chemists worked out a very ingenious and far-reaching plan of mass control which was submitted to and adopted by the German General Staff. This plan was to control the population in any given area through mass medication of drinking water supplies. By this method they could control the population of whole areas, reduce population by water medication that would produce sterility in women and so on. In this scheme of mass control, sodium fluoride occupied a prominent place.

    “We are told by the ideologists who are advocating the fluorination of water supplies in this country that their purpose is to reduce the incidence of tooth decay in children, and it is the plausibility of this excuse, plus the prominence of those who are responsible for the present spread of artificial water fluoridation in this country.

    “However – and I want to make this very definite and very positive – the real reason behind fluorination is not to benefit children’s teeth. If this were the real reason there are many ways in which it could be done that are much easier, cheaper and far more effective. The real purpose behind water fluoridation is to reduce the resistance of the masses to domination and control and loss of liberty…

    “I was told of this entire scheme by a German chemist who was an official of the great Farben chemical industries and was also prominent in the Nazi movement at the time…”

    Dr. Clymer additionally cites a 1956 letter written by the then New York Water Commissioner Arthur C. Ford (available in full here). In the letter, Ford speaks out openly against fluorides as “…extremely toxic substances…” Ford writes,

    “We are aware that the fluorides are extremely toxic substances, and evidence exists to show that even at the recommended level of one part per million of fluoride in drinking water, people in fluoridated communities have been harmed.

    We know of reputable, independent medical authorities throughout the United States and in the local area who have found evidence of fluoride damage to persons living in fluoridated communities. These medical authorities disagree with the fluoride hypothesis, and they have raised grave questions with respect to the safety of the procedure for an entire population which includes the young, the old, the susceptible and the infirm as well as the healthy.

    Fluoride, besides being a toxic substance, is not all excreted when taken into the system, a significant percentage remaining cumulatively. Fluoridation of the drinking water at any level of concentration is a very indiscriminate procedure, since children drink widely varying amounts of water…”

    Australian television recently reported on fluoride’s harmful impact on human health and efforts to expand water fluoridation on the continent.

    As sperm counts continue to fall world-wide and GMO crops escape into the environment, exposure to untold numbers of environmental toxins like BPA is a continuing threat. In the United States, several EPA scientists have denounced fluoridation, calling for a national moratorium on the fluoridation of water supplies. Citizens in Wichita Kansas are becoming active in raising awareness of fluoride, drawing attacks from the local media. Awareness of these issues is essential not just for those living today, but for future generations. Open admissions of the intent to chemically alter humanity should leave us with nothing but a sense of duty to warn others of the grave threat that we face.

    Thank you, Health Freedom and Just the Facts! I was unfamiliar with oldthinkernews and a few other posts that cite some other fantastic internet resources. Me thinks that people who still have a brain are able to see through the incredible, blatant lies put out by govt. agencies backed by the medical/pharmaceutical industries. Thought you might like this one that Dr. Betty Martini of Mission Possible sent me -

    EU bans the claim that water can prevent dehydration…

    Just in case some of you haven't seen this!

    The European Food Safety Authority after three years of careful deliberation by 21 Eurocratic experts in Parma, Italy have prohibited bottled water packagers from saying it prevents dehydration. Stiff penalties and prison will face those who make such a claim.

    How wonderful! 75% of our bodies is water, 85% of our brains and 92% of our blood. We exhaust several liters of the liquid every day; doesn't that prove it's useless? EFSA's gifted, wise, educated (& overpaid) scientists finally announce this stunning revelation: water won't hydrate! Pity the explorer trudging the Sahara burdened with a heavy canteen, how unnecessary!

    I believe a natural question needs here to be answered by these august authorities:

    What were they drinking? Champaign or Chianti? Truly, in the land of fools the Idiot is King!

    Now get this straight! In 1994 EU issued Regulation #2257 commanding bananas to be "free of abnormal curvature" thus to protect us from a dread plague of bent fruit. Another rule orders straight cucumbers, Oh my!

    These are the same people who tell the world the deadly chemical poison, aspartame, is safe, so what do you expect?

    Creating Mass Mindedness

    First, create blind belief. Blind obedience will follow. This is The Formula:

    1. Ideational Underexposure: People must be persistently and consistently exposed to only one point-of-view, one way of thinking about a subject. Other ways of thinking—or interpreting data—must be ignored or denigrated. Thus, the art of questioning, which is central to the development of the critical faculty, is stunted. Why? Because the critical or discriminating faculty is an aspect of the intellect and the intellect learns by comparison.

    2. Fear and guilt: People must be programmed to believe in some threatening external agent from which they can be saved only by the intervention of a product, person or collective movement. In the case of vaccinations, transform non-transmissible diseases into transmissible ones. Transform relatively benign—for a healthy child—self-limiting diseases of childhood such as mumps, measles, rubella and even whooping cough, into something "dread," "devastating," or "dangerous," which places a child "at risk." Make parents feel guilty by accusing them of medical or even child neglect for failing to vaccinate their children. Get legislation passed that will enforce this policy. If this succeeds, up the ante and have parents accused of child abuse.

    3. From private to public: Transform a private issue into a public health problem. Claim that the old 'scary' diseases of yesteryear like smallpox and diphtheria—and more recently polio—were "conquered" by vaccinations and that enough unvaccinated persons could leave the community open to the old plagues and diseases that nearly decimated earlier populations. Point the finger at the unvaccinated for not doing their civic duty and exposing the community to danger.

    Call vaccinations "immunizations" and unvaccinated persons "unimmunized," thus implying that natural immunity is non-existent and that only vaccinations produce immunity.

    4. Bandwagons: People love to belong, to march together for some 'righteous' cause. Give awards to those who are most compliant—good soldiers. Becoming creative with statistics and even events is frequently necessary. Exclude skeptics and non-conformists from policy making processes and public forums.

    5. Learn the tapes: Tape 1: Trust vaccines: "The benefits outweigh the risks." This means, of course, that vaccines are a lot safer than the natural disease. Tape 2: Creative statistics: Vaccine side effects are extremely rare, while the side effects of natural diseases can be "devastating." Tape 3: Denial: It would have happened anyway." This is to be recited when a distraught parent claims her child was neurologically damaged by a vaccine. Tape 4: Good Soldier: "When your child died s/he saved the lives of 10,000 babies."

    Thus programmed, people can believe in absurdities. Some of these are:

    *The medicine I take to protect me won't work unless everyone takes the same medicine.

    *If I don't take the medicine I could endanger those who do.

    *The fox is the expert who should be in charge of the hen house.

    *Ideas and events are context free.

    *Assembly line treatments such as mass, compulsory vaccinations are sound policies because our bodies are machines disconnected from mind, spirit, poetry, philosophy and all that makes us human.

    What will future generations say about us? Will they read in their history books: They poisoned their food and ate it? They poisoned their water and drank it. They poisoned their air and breathed it. And wonder of wonders, they poisoned their bodies to prevent disease.

    Gardasil - Don't Cry for Me Argentina - I Have Come to Kill Thousands of Your Girls

    "Last February, Argentinian President Cristina Fernandez announced the launch of the country's HPV vaccine program at the National Institute of Tropical Medicine conference. In a stunning admission and before an audience of her countrymen, who did not react to her gaffe, President Fernandez admits that the HPV vaccine kills girls. Was she betrayed by her subconscious or by her criminal unconscious?

    "Now we are going to add the HPV vaccine to the Official Immunization Program of the State and therefore (this expensive medicine) will be free (the HPV vaccine), and therefore, with some time, we will get thousands of women losing their lives" - Spanish: "Vamos a lograr que miles de mujeres pierdan la vida". In fact, the President even seems to know more than many of us on the lethal effectiveness of the drug when she says..."with sometime."1.

    Of course Argentina is one of many 'middle- and low-income countries' who have struggled to find ways to introduce the HPV vaccine (Gardasil) in already cash-strapped health systems that have little experience providing health services to adolescent girls.'2. But that is where Merck's Gardasil Access program steps in with free vaccinations for adolescent girls. The Gardasil Access Program is making available at least 3 million doses of Gardasil Human Papillomavirus Quadrivalent (Types 6, 11, 16, 18 Vaccine Recombinant) to qualifying organizations and institutions for use in approved HPV vaccine projects in developing countries.3..

    Of course, we now know that this vaccine has been found to be contaminated with a genetically modified recombinant virus that makes the vaccine bio hazardous and a threat to the health and well-being of the population that it is targeted to protect. 4.

    The official propaganda of the country's HPV vaccine campaign flagrantly orchestrated by the Argentinian government & financed by Merck - is an animated cartoon with a girl named Maria who dreams of becoming a doctor. The ad blatantly instills fear into the hearts of adolescents with its message that Maria "will only become a doctor in the future if she is vaccinated against HPV." The real message is that Maria only will be able to fulfill her dream of becoming a doctor when she grows up, if she is vaccinated against HPV."

    Eva Peron- Death by Betrayal Not Cervical Cancer

    President Fernandez supported her lies about the need for the HPV Vaccination Program evoking the death of the legendary Argentinian politician Eva Peron (wife of Juan Domingo Peron), who died of cervical cancer. Using this fear-based reference to Peron is not only painful and malicious, but victimizes a woman who changed the country's history by fighting for the rights of women, including their right to vote. Eva's activities were integral in the history of Argentina and she became a political symbol.

    In fact, Juan Peron's first wife also died of cervical cancer and the possibility exists that Peron infected both wives with a particularly aggressive variant of human papillomavirus which combined with other risk factors may have caused cancer in both, or that his first wife infected him and he passed the infection along to Eva.

    However, the details and horror around Eva's death are exposed in this New York Times article, dated June 6, 2000 THE DOCTOR'S WORLD; From the Life of Evita, a New Chapter on Medical Secrecy.

    When Eva Peron, the first lady of Argentina, underwent a hysterectomy in November 1951, she did not know that her husband, Juan, had summoned a Manhattan cancer surgeon to perform the procedure. The surgeon, Dr. George T. Pack, flew to Buenos Aires, entered the operating room after Eva was anesthetized, and left before she awoke.

    A month earlier, using the same secret ritual, Dr. Pack examined an anesthetized Eva to confirm the cervical cancer that Argentine doctors had detected.

    The deceit was to keep the cancer secret from Eva and the public during a presidential campaign. Eva's efforts for the poor made a powerful political figure of a woman whose fame was later perpetuated as Evita in a Broadway musical and movie. News that she had a potentially fatal illness could have affected the election's outcome.

    The childless Eva underwent both procedures in the belief she had vague female problems. She never knew she had cancer. 4..


    Of the 40 million people in Argentina, 51.3% are women. It is estimated that 2,000 women will die from cervical cancer annually in Argentina. That means that only 0.005% of women may die from cervical cancer- and most of those are due to the lack of gynecological screenings and pap testing.

    Do these numbers justify vaccinating 100% of girls?

    Ignoring the scientific evidence of contamination of viral DNA genetic engineering and international reports on the devastating drug that now has caused countless deaths and thousands of injuries worldwide, President Fernandez insisted that "cancer is a contagious disease," and that all 11 year old girls must receive the mandated HPV Vaccine. Gardasil is now is required for admission to schools, jobs and even the provision of social services or family alowances.

    Blind Media

    Cristina Fernandez's Business with the giant Merck (Gardasil) or the corporation GlaxoSmithKline (Cervarix), two laboratories with Offices in Argentina, should be foiled when the president stepped on itself" or was betrayed by her subconscious. However nobody seems to have heard the statement, although the official video is on-line at the official website of the Argentine government on You Tube.5..

    By the way, this is not the first time that Cristina Fernandez has lied about being compliant with pharmaceutical industry. She did it before with swine flu. Even today, today, the flu shot is mandatory in Argentina. 6.

    We will ensure that thousands of women will die. Betrayed by consciousness or unconsciousness?

    It is obvious that President Fernandez was betrayed by her own truth - since it is now becoming quite clear that the HPV vaccines Gardasil and Cervarix increase the risk for cervical cancer if a woman is exposed to HPV prior to vaccination. Source:

    Health Freedom:

    Regarding the alleged 'myths' in the article by Christina England:

    Myth #1:

    This is the same strawman argument that has been presented several times in this thread already. No-one claims that vaccination is 100% effective.

    It ignores the fact that vaccination significantly reduced both mortality and morbidity. And it ignores the fact that because the majority still vaccinate, even the small percentage of vaccinated cases who do not develop immunity is likely to be larger than the numbers who refuse vaccination completely.

    For example, the Pertussis Outbreak in California last year:…

    "89% of cases were among infants aged <6 months, who are too young to be fully immunized."

    "Five deaths were reported, all in previously healthy Hispanic infants aged <2 months at disease onset; none had received any pertussis-containing vaccines."


    As explained here, parental refusal of vaccination will also put children at risk of pertussis:…


    Myth #2:

    This meta-analysis was published in the Lancet, looking at the efficacy of flu vaccine:…

    Bullet points:

    * Pooled efficacy of influenza vaccination over several years at preventing the flu was approximately 59%; efficacy of the H1N1 vaccine was 69%.

    * Flu vaccines are more effective in children (83%)

    * Efficacy of the flu vaccine against seasonal influenza is highly variable and is low in some years.


    "Seasonal influenza is an important public health and medical challenge. Pandemic influenza would cause a substantial burden of disease and seriously threaten the global economy. Based on a track record of substantial safety and moderate efficacy in many seasons, we believe the current influenza vaccines will continue to have a role in reduction of influenza morbidity until more effective interventions are available. However, evidence for consistent high-level protection is elusive for the present generation of vaccines, especially in individuals at risk of medical complications or those aged 65 years or older. The ongoing public health burden caused by seasonal influenza and the potential global effect of a severe pandemic suggests an urgent need for a new generation of more highly effective and cross-protective vaccines that can be manufactured rapidly....Active pursuit of this goal now will save lives every year and when the next influenza pandemic occurs. In the meantime, we should maintain public support for present vaccines that are the best intervention available for seasonal influenza."


    Myth #3:

    Evidence supports the efficacy of HPV Vaccine:…

    "PATRICIA end-of-study results show excellent vaccine efficacy against CIN3+ and AIS irrespective of HPV DNA in the lesion. Population-based vaccination that incorporates the HPV-16/18 vaccine and high coverage of early adolescents might have the potential to substantially reduce the incidence of cervical cancer."

    Mr. Gavin,

    Well, it's Monday and I see you are back at your job! Tell me - what business does someone from the UK have in telling the good people here in Idaho what is best for their children? I see you spend quite a bit of time spreading your disinformation around forums and comment sections around the net. Please do tell us all here what your motivation is...

    RE: "It ignores the fact that vaccination significantly reduced both mortality and morbidity."

    LOL - Thanks for the comedy but your untenable position has been refuted by the most intelligent minds on the subject and your information supporting this huge lie can only be garnered from those that have a vested monetary interest in the matter as you have so adequately shown here (PERIOD)

    Alas - all you can give anyone on the issue at hand is your erroneous conclusions and fairytale illusions. While your ability to use the search engines to find your deposits of junk science, pseudoscience, and misinformation is admirable, I would think that you can find a better use of your life force. While you may think that it is perfectly fine to shoot mercury and monkey puss into the veins of innocent children, the overwhelming majority of us here in this forum are not so inclined.

    I also note that you have devolved into only refuting approximately 1/100 of the anti-vac-sin-nation intelligence that is being presented here so I will assume as any intelligent reader would that the other 99% is spot on. Thank you for your confirmation! I for one have nominated you for anti-vaccination advocate of the year as you have, at least in this forum, done more to advance our cause than anyone I can think of in recent history. I wish you the best of luck during the national voting primaries and i sincerely believe you have a good chance of winning.

    I also note the absence of any answers to my questions regarding health issues outside the vaccine paradigm so I am assuming that you don't have any play cards for health questions unrelated to vaccinations. - Very telling...

    Please tell me - do you have any formal education at all ? I have long suspected that maybe you have a B.S. degree and that is the reason that you are un-intimidated about refuting some of the greatest doctors that the world has ever produced.

    You are giving a whole new meaning and dimension to the word "troll".

    Esther, have you travelled to a third world country recently? You stated in part - "...a vaccine that will be given (due to Bill Gate's vaccine program) in a Third World country where not being inoculated against diseases can maim or kill...."

    Do you really believe that these poorer nations need vaccines over fresh, healthy food and clean water?

    There are many doctors speaking out in these countries to try and stop the WHO vaccine machine that is devastating the health of their country's children AND sterilizing their women. Here is an older article (1995) with references from Human Life International.

    None of the vaccines used for the WHO 'tetanus' programs were licensed...

    In India, they have areas with 100% coverage of polio vaccine, with many children having 8-10 doses. Outbreaks of 'polio' among the children given several doses of vaccine are common.

    There are many articles from 'official newspapers' in those countries that are more recent and corroborate this older information.

    UNICEF Nigerian Polio Vaccine Contaminated with Sterilizing Agents Scientist Finds

    Some 15 years ago - on May 11, 1987 - the highly respectable London Times newspaper published a Page 1 article which made the bold assertion that the World Health Organisation (WHO) had "triggered" the AIDS epidemic in Africa through its small pox immunisation programme. According to the London Times article - "WHO information indicated that the AIDS league table of Central Africa matches the concentration of vaccinations - the greatest spread of HIV infection coincides with the most intense immunisation programmes . . ."

    Back to basic logic - injections of foreign proteins (bacteria/viruses cultured in diseased tissue) coupled with formaldhyde, thimerosal, aluminum hydoxide, phenol (known poisons) cannot possibly make anyone healthier or "prevent disease".

    Vaccine Conspiracy: The CDC Caught Lying Again

    by Gary Null, PhD, Jeremy Stillman, and Nancy Ashley, VMD, MS

    "A bombshell revelation coming out of an investigation by the drug safety group Coalition for Mercury-free Drugs (CoMeD) has rocked the foundation of a belief widely held by mainstream medicine – the idea that vaccines do not cause autism. In a news release last Tuesday, CoMeD exposed a cover-up by authorities at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and vaccine researchers who deliberately omitted critical data from a 2003 article on mercury and autism that was carried out in Denmark. The conclusion of the article denied any causal relationship between the mercury-laden vaccine ingredient Thimerosal and autism. However, documents obtained by CoMeD indicate that the authors of the article, with the full approval of the CDC, decided to leave out large quantities of data which, in fact, supported a strong link between Thimerosal and the incidence of autism.

    The documents, which were acquired through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), reveal correspondences between individuals at the CDC and scientists working on the Danish article. The article examined rates of autism in Denmark after a nationwide phasing out of all Thimerosal-containing vaccines in 1992. The unearthed communications prove that the data collected during the study actually reflected an overall decrease in the incidence of autism since the phase-out was implemented. However, the article’s authors chose to use only select data which bolstered the conclusion that rates of autism in Denmark had risen since 1992. This decision was deemed entirely acceptable by officials at the CDC.#

    In one missive to the CDC that was turned up in CoMeD’s investigation, a researcher working on the study called attention to the exclusion of important data associating Thimerosal-fortified vaccines with autism. Part of the communication stated "attached I send you the short and long manuscript about Thimerosal and autism in Denmark … I need to tell you that the figures do not include the latest data from 2001 … but the incidence and prevalence are still decreasing in 2001.”# The documents also reveal that the lead author of the article was aware of the extensive omissions of data before submitting the final draft for review and publication. The CDC chose to ignore the deeply flawed science behind the article’s conclusion and even went so far as to send a recommendation letter to editor of the American Academy of Pediatrics journal, Pediatrics, which called on the group to fast-track the article’s review and publication. Since it was published 8 years ago, the article has been highly touted by major medical institutions and health care professionals as definitive proof of no association between mercury and autism spectrum disorder. #

    What is Thimerosal?

    Thimerosal is an organic compound made up of equal parts ethylmercury and thiosalicylic acid. Developed by Eli Lilly, Thimerosal was registered in 1929 as a compound with antiseptic and antibacterial properties and was widely used in a variety of products prior to the development of antibiotics. The use of Thimerosal as a preservative in vaccines appears to have been based on a single, uncontrolled and poorly-reported human study in the 1920s: the FDA never required the pharmaceutical industry to conduct truly scientific safety studies on Thimerosal and consequently, it has never been proven safe.4

    The medical literature is replete with references to the dangers of mercury, a heavy metal known to be toxic at certain levels. Its toxic effects on the developing brain may progress to severe brain damage, cerebella ataxia, delayed achievement of developmental milestones, neurological abnormalities, constriction of the visual fields, and loss of hearing. Impacts on cognitive thinking, memory, attention, language, fine motor and visual spatial skills have been seen in children exposed to mercury in the womb. According to EPA guidelines, doses of mercury should never exceed 0.1 micrograms/kg/day. This means that a child receiving a vaccine containing 12.5 micrograms of mercury - the lowest amount of mercury in a mercury-containing vaccine - would be receiving a toxic dose. A rare study comparing DTaP vaccines with and without Thimerosal shows that the Thimerosal-containing vaccine caused higher rates of speech disorders autism, and cardiac arrest.5

    Scientific Evidence Connecting Mercury, Vaccines and Autism

    An investigation published in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health in July 2011 offers great insight into the relationship between autism and mercury. Australian researchers David Austin, PhD and Kerrie Shandley surveyed a group of adults who were survivors of Pink Disease or Infantile Acrodynia, an ailment historically caused by exposure to mercury found in teething powder, diaper rinses and other materials. Since the survivors of Pink Disease were proven to be sensitive to mercury, the study set out to find whether or not higher rates of autism were present in their grandchildren. Austin and Shandley demonstrated that 1 in 25 of the survivors’ grandchildren had some form of autism spectrum disorder. The frequency of autism among children in the general population of Australia in the same age group as those surveyed is 1in 160.5.6 The results unequivocally suggest that children with a family history of susceptibility to mercury poisoning are far more likely to develop autism.

    Two articles appearing in the neuroscience journal Acta Neurobiologiae Experimentalis in 2010 provide convincing evidence of a relationship between vaccines and autism. In the first study done by researchers at the University of Pittsburgh, baby macaque monkeys were given a course of vaccinations typical of the 1990s vaccine schedule. In comparison with the control group, the vaccinated monkeys displayed abnormal patterns of brain growth and dysfunction of the amygdala – both strong indicators of autism when they appear in children.7

    In the other article, researchers at the University of Northern Iowa evaluated dozens of studies that claimed to refute the relationship between autism and exposure to toxic metals such as mercury, found in vaccines. The evidence gathered overwhelmingly contradicted the studies’ conclusions and suggested that the presence of heavy metals the bodies of children is indeed connected with autism. The scientists also determined that several of these studies used erroneous statistics and faulty methodologies to come to their conclusions. 8

    A 2004 study conducted by Northwestern University Pharmacy professor Richard Deth and researchers from the University of Nebraska, Tufts and Johns Hopkins University offered further evidence of a connection between vaccines and neurological disorders. The study found that toxins contained within vaccines disrupt the biochemical process of methylation in the human body. Methylation plays a significant role in normal DNA function and neurological growth in infants and children.9 The group’s findings suggest that toxicants introduced through vaccinations contribute to conditions such as autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. The results were published in the Journal of Molecular Psychiatry.

    In a study published in the Journal of Biomedical Science in 2002, scientists at Utah State University’s Department of Biology analyzed the effect of the MMR vaccine on the central nervous system. In their evaluation, the group discovered that autistic children given the vaccine posses a significantly elevated number of a type of antibody related to measles. These antibodies trigger an abnormal autoimmune response that effectively damages the brain’s myelin sheath. Evidence suggests that such damage to the myelin sheath may impair normal brain activities and cause autism.10 In another study exposing the dangers of the MMR injection, researchers at the University of California San Diego and San Diego State University showed a significantly higher incidence of autism among children who were given the MMR vaccine and subsequently took acetaminophen. Their findings were published in the medical journal Autism. 11

    The conclusions of these investigations are corroborated by the work of Dr. Boyd Haley who has done extensive research in the area of toxicology. Dr. Haley served as the chairman of the University of Kentucky’s Department of Chemistry and spent three years as a NIH post-doctoral scholar at the Yale University Medical School’s Department of Physiology. Haley’s comprehensive body of research demonstrates a startling connection between the use of mercury-fortified Thimerosal in vaccines and neurological disease. His research has identified mercury, even in miniscule amounts, to be a dangerous immunity suppressant that is damaging to neurological health and a major contributor to autism spectrum disorder. Dr. Haley’s scientific inquiries have provided strong evidence documenting how ethylmercury inhibits the process of phagocytosis (a critically important biological process of the human immune system), impairs the function of dendritic neurons in the brain and hinders the production of methyl B12. Each of these adverse events are significant factors in the onset of neurological illness.12

    The Dark and Dubious History of the CDC:

    The CDC has a sordid history of supporting the pharmaceutical industry and suppressing information to the detriment of our health. There are key pieces of the puzzle which need to be examined in order to understand what is behind the cover-up of the relationship between Thimerosal and autism. The current revelation that critical data was omitted from the Danish study in order to alter the conclusion is not the only example of deceit connected with this project. A central figure involved in the scandal is Dr. Poul Thorsen, who served as the CDC's chief coordinator for the Danish study. On April 13, 2011, Thorsen was indicted by a U.S federal grand jury for using his personal bank account at the CDC credit union to launder more than $1 million earmarked for autism research under CDC grants. He is facing 13 counts of wire fraud and 9 counts of money laundering. The U.S Attorney’s office is currently in the process of extraditing Thorsen from Denmark to face charges.13 In light of these developments, have the CDC, FDA, or any of the major journals which published Thorsen’s pro-vaccine autism research, denounced him or called his research into question? Hardly. Thorsen’s research is too important of a cornerstone in the “evidence” which dispels any link between vaccines and autism. Therefore, it is unlikely that his career and his published work will face the same fate as that of Dr. Andrew Wakefield.


    In June 2000, a group of top government scientists, health officials, the CDC, the FDA and representatives from the pharmaceutical industry attended a conference convened by the CDC at the Simpsonwood conference center in Norcross, Georgia. Officially titled the Scientific Review of Vaccine Safety Datalink Information, the Simpsonwood conference was held to review the findings of a large epidemiological study evaluating any relationship between Thimerosal and autism. The meeting was not open to the public and was subject to a complete news embargo. Thanks to a Freedom of Information Act request filed by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a transcript of the meeting became available. The transcript revealed not only damning information about the dangers of Thimerosal, but also the cold-blooded cover-up of this information. The director of the Datalink study, CDC epidemiologist Dr. Tom Verstraeten, was quoted as saying, “I was actually stunned by what I saw,” citing the staggering number of earlier studies that indicate a link between Thimerosal and speech delays, attention deficit disorder, hyperactivity and autism.14

    What happened to the important results of the Datalink information was best summed up by then- Congressman Dave Weldon of Florida. A medical doctor himself, Weldon wrote the following to the CDC’s director, Dr. Julie Gerberding, after reading the draft of a study authored by Dr. Verstraeten:

    “A review of these documents leaves me very concerned that rather than seeking to understand whether or not some children were exposed to harmful levels of mercury in childhood vaccines in the 1990s, there may have been a selective use of the data to make the associations in the earliest study disappear.”15

    Dr. Verstraeten, who by then was working for pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline, went on to publish the manipulated data in the journal Pediatrics. The study ran counter to everything he had reported at Simpsonwood and concluded that there was no correlation between neurodevelopmental problems and Thimerosal exposure.16

    The Pace University Study

    In contradiction to most of the mainstream reports of studies dismissing any link between vaccines and autism, a detailed research study appearing in the Pace Environmental Law Review in March 2011 revealed that the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has been quietly compensating 83 families for cases of vaccine-induced encephalopathy and residual seizure disorder associated with autism. In 21 of these cases, the word “autism” is actually used in court documents to describe the injuries that resulted from vaccination. The obvious conclusion is that, in paying these claims, the government has implicitly acknowledged a link between vaccination and autism.17

    Gardasil – Pushing a Hazardous Vaccine on Boys

    The CDC has just added another vaccine to the immunization schedule for boys ages 11-12: Gardasil. The popular human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine is now being recommended by the CDC for preteen boys who, according to federal health authorities, are at risk for developing anal, penile and oral cancers stemming from the sexually-transmitted HPV. 18 One outspoken critic of this decision is Dr. Diane Harper, a former FDA researcher who played a large role in having Gardasil approved in 2006 – she currently works as the director of the Gynecologic Cancer Prevention Research Group at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. In an interview with ABC News, Dr. Harper stated that the long-term effectiveness of the vaccine in preventing cancer-causing strains of HPV has not been established. Further, Dr. Harper mentioned that any immunological benefit the vaccine offers to boys wears off years earlier than it does in girls. She went on to say that she believes it is “misguided to think that all boys will gain any health benefit from HPV vaccination.” 19

    Officials at the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) also expressed their misgivings over the CDC’s latest recommendation that Gardasil be used on boys. AAPS director Alieta Eck, M.D, questioned the propriety of vaccinating boys for a condition that plays a relatively minor role in the risks associated with promiscuity stating that “if we knew a swimming pool was heavily contaminated, would we buy our children wet suits in case they decided to go swimming anyway?” 20

    The Next Deadly Injection- Anthrax

    Last Friday, the National Biodefense Science Board voted 12-1 in favor of beginning testing of the anthrax vaccine on children. The influential group claims that anthrax vaccinations would help to protect against a potential bioterrorist attack using the anthrax bacteria. The responsibility now lies with officials at the Department of Health and Human Services who are considering whether to move ahead with testing the vaccine on children. 21 Since 1998, more than 2.6 million individuals have been given the Anthrax vaccine- most of them have been members of the military serving overseas. 22 Due to the vaccine’s very harmful side effects and disputed efficacy, the widespread use of the anthrax vaccine has been roundly criticized by many.

    In the wake of the anthrax attack that shook Washington D.C in 2001, former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist commented on the use of the vaccine saying:

    “There are very real and potentially serious side effects from the vaccine and anyone who elects to receive the vaccine needs to be made aware of that. I do not recommend widespread inoculation for people with the vaccine in the Hart Building. There are too many side effects and if there is limited chance of exposure the side effects would far outweigh any potential advantage.” 23

    Now 10 years later, opposition to impose the anthrax vaccine on civilians remains strong. Among the opponents is Vera Sharav of the New York-based Alliance for Human Research Protection. In an interview with the Washington Post, Sharav condemned the move by the National Biodefense Science Board saying that “the trial would expose healthy children to substantial harm with no possibility of benefit.” 24 In a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, the watchdog organization Public Citizen attacked the group’s proposal, calling it “unethical…because the research does not present any prospect of direct benefit to the children who would be the subjects of the research, and the vaccine poses significant known risks of potentially serious harm." 25

    Speaking during an interview on the Progressive Radio Network, bioterrorism and anthrax vaccine expert Dr. Meryl Nass of Mount Desert Island Hospital in Bar Harbor, Maine, voiced her serious concern over the advisory panel’s recommendation for testing anthrax vaccines on children. Dr. Nass contended that it is “an extremely dangerous vaccine” pointing out that even the federal government has recognized that no less than 7% of anthrax vaccine recipients have experienced serious side effects. She discussed that the efficacy of the anthrax vaccine has never been established and there is no scientific evidence which indicates that mass vaccinations would be beneficial to the population. Further, Dr. Nass pointed out that anthrax is not contagious and even if an outbreak were to occur, it would be small in scope. 26

    Speculating on the true reasons for bringing about a trial of the vaccine, Dr. Nass said that the vaccine’s manufacturer, Emergent, may be looking to expand the number of people eligible for the vaccine which is currently available only for people between 18 and 65 years old. 27 She noted the astronomical profit margin on the anthrax vaccine, which hovers around 300% while the profit margin for most other vaccines is usually about 10%.28 According to Dr. Nass, the promotion of the anthrax vaccine for children is a clear example the collusion that exists between government officials and the pharmaceutical industry. She cites the more than $2 billion in contracts that the US government has inked to produce the anthrax vaccine and the recent legislation which effectively stripped all Americans of the right to sue vaccine makers for damages. 29


    This latest scandal proves yet again that the CDC has failed to protect the health of the American public. The fact that the CDC, with malice aforethought, willfully withheld vital information, resulted in policies that allowed the continuation of the status quo – dangerous, mercury-laden vaccines mandated for children and huge profits to the pharmaceutical companies that produce them. Given the state of affairs, it’s no wonder that an increasing number of individuals are raising doubts over the safety and efficacy of vaccines. In fact, the findings of a study presented this month at a convention of the Infectious Diseases Society of America indicated that younger medical doctors were 15% less likely to put full faith in the effectiveness of vaccines than their older counterparts.30 Even still, the medical establishment is forging ahead with plans to expand their agenda of dangerous and unnecessary mass vaccination. Perhaps this most recent revelation will prove to be the tipping point that finally leads to a critical reassessment of the role of the CDC and the FDA in regulating the vaccine industry.

    "By Gary Null and Nancy Ashley

    Currently, the American public through our government agencies, the CDC, the FDA the US Public Health Service, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases is being told that only by vaccinating all children and infants, all adults and seniors can we confer complete protective immunity from major diseases, whether H1N1, the seasonal flu, chicken pox, measles, hepatitis, etc. to any given individual. Their arguments have never been put to the test. It is virtually impossible to have open, independent, objective scientific and public health discourse. You either accept without challenge that vaccines provide permanent lifetime immunity, or you are immediately relegated as a quack. However, a careful analysis and review of the scientific literature shows that no vaccine or combination of vaccines can be proven to confer complete immunity and be safe.

    Dr. Tom Jefferson, Epidemiologist and Reviewer at the esteemed Cochrane Collaboration has researched and written widely on respiratory infections, especially influenza. In an interview with Germany’s Der Spiegel magazine, Dr. Jefferson made the following comments regarding the flu vaccine:

    “An influenza vaccine is not working for the majority of influenza-like illnesses because it is only designed to combat influenza viruses. For that reason, the vaccine changes nothing when it comes to the heightened mortality rate during the winter months. And, even in the best of cases, the vaccine only works against influenza viruses to a limited degree. Among other things, there is always the danger that the flu virus in circulation will have changed by the time that the vaccine product is finished with the result that, in the worst case, the vaccine will be totally ineffectual. In the best of cases, the few decent studies that exist show that the vaccine mainly works with healthy young adults. With children and the elderly, it only helps a little, if at all. These are the exact groups that the flu vaccine is recommended for, which is one of the contradictions between scientific findings and practice, between evidence and policy. Of course, that has something to do with the influence of the pharmaceutical industry. But it also has to do with the fact that the importance of influenza is completely overestimated. It has to do with research funds, power, influence and scientific reputations!” When asked whether it is reasonable to keep vaccinating against seasonal flu, Dr. Jefferson’s response was, “I can’t see any reason for it.” 1

    Dr. Maurice Helleman, a pioneer in the field of vaccine researcher at Merck in the 1950s, developed more than 40 vaccines, including 5 of the 14 immunizations routinely given to children and adults today. In a candid interview, Dr. Helleman related that monkeys were used in the some of the vaccines he developed, and it was impossible to screen out all the viruses carried by the monkeys. He discovered that the new Sabin polio vaccine contained Simian Virus 40, a DNA virus that has the potential to cause tumors. In fact, SV 40 caused tumors in the hamsters they were testing the vaccine on. Also developed at that time, the yellow fever vaccine contained a leukemia virus. Helleman said, “we knew it was in our seed stock from making vaccines. …it was good science at the time because that was what you did. You didn't worry about these wild viruses.”2

    In a careful analysis of thousands of articles in the peer-reviewed literature on immunology nowhere can we find gold standard, double blind, placebo controlled studies that prove that any vaccine or combination of vaccines can be shown to provide lifelong immunity and safety to any individual.

    There is an official term used by research scientists and epidemiologists when evaluating vaccines, a term that never makes it to the mainstream media: vaccine failure. Vaccine failure refers either to the lack of effectiveness of the vaccine (primary failure), or the waning of immunity (secondary failure).3 The CDC, the FDA, the vaccine manufacturers, and health care professionals alike bombard us with a barrage of advertising designed to make us believe that vaccines are critical to good health and disease prevention, such that we have lost the capacity to ask the simple and obvious question: will vaccines keep me and my family from getting sick? In this report, we will discuss secondary vaccine failure: The Myth of Vaccine Immunity.

    The 2010 whooping cough outbreak in California caused 9,100 people to become ill and 10 babies died, prompting officials to recommend an additional booster shot for 12 year olds. So far in Fall 2011, California schools have already turned away thousands of middle and high school students who have not gotten the recommended booster. Whooping cough, or pertussis, packaged together with Diptheria, and Tetanus (DtaP), is given according to a robust vaccine schedule of 5 shots by age six, the most of any childhood vaccine: at 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 15-18 months, and 4-6 years.4 The whooping cough outbreak prompted much hostility and accusation towards parents who chose not to vaccinate their children, along with a clamor to add yet more booster shots. Even adults are now being asked to get a booster vaccine every 10 years.

    But was the outbreak caused by the anti-vaccine sentiment in Marin County and elsewhere? That question was answered without fanfare during the second week of September with a study showing that the whooping cough vaccine given to babies and toddlers loses much of its effectiveness after just three years. Dr. David Witt, lead researcher and Chief of Infectious Disease at the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in San Rafael, CA, said in a rare moment of frankness, “I was disturbed to find maybe we had a little more confidence in the vaccine than it might deserve.”5 The study looked at 15,000 children in Marin County, CA, and found that youngsters who had gone three years or more since the last of their five original shots were as much as 20 times more likely to become infected than children who had been recently vaccinated. Dr. Witt, revealing his own pre-study bias, said that when he began the study he expected to see the illness concentrated in unvaccinated children. But what he found was that more than 80% of the children who developed whooping cough were fully vaccinated!

    So perhaps unvaccinated children aren’t the problem. During January 1--May 20, 2011, a total of 118 cases of measles were reported to the CDC from 23 states and New York City. There were no fatalities. Among the 118 cases, 105 were both “import-associated” and unvaccinated. Of the 87 U.S. residents who came down with measles, 74 were unvaccinated: 39 under age 20, and 35 age 20 and older. 6 The CDC focused heavily on the unvaccinated measles victims while giving no time to the analysis of those vaccinated individuals who also became ill. In fact, 13 of the group (17.5%) had received the MMR vaccine but got measles anyway! While the CDC uses these incidents of disease outbreak to stress the need for vigilant adherence to the vaccine schedule, the real take home message here is that 17.5% of a group of vaccinated individuals got sick despite the vaccine. One thing, however, is certain: the unvaccinated people in this group who recovered (all of them) now have a lifelong immunity against measles. For the ones who got the measles despite having been vaccinated, we just don’t know. Could the vaccine prevent these people from developing the normal lifetime immunity? So far, no researcher has taken on this issue.

    Likewise, there was a 1985 outbreak of measles in a Texas community in which 14 students out of 1806 contracted measles, and all of the students were vaccinated – no exceptions, and no reports of exposure from a foreign endemic area for any of the students. 7

    Mumps is another virus frequently found to arise in vaccinated populations. In 2006 the US experienced the largest nationwide mumps epidemic in 20 years, primarily affecting college students in dormitories, and characterized by 2-dose failure rates among college students vaccinated in childhood. Authorities tried to blame the outbreak on crowded living conditions in dorms, instead of considering the obvious: the vaccine simply isn’t effective for very long. 8

    In 2009-2010 New York and New Jersey witnessed more than 1500 cases of mumps among highly vaccinated groups: 88% of the affected children had received at least one vaccine, while 75% had received the recommended two vaccines. According to Dr. Jane Zucker, NYC Assistant Commissioner of Immunization, “We know that approximately one in every 20 people who are vaccinated may not develop antibodies.” The Reuters reporter went even further, stating, “The mumps virus can mutate, so people who have had only one or even two doses of vaccine remain vulnerable.” 9 How can a vaccine with such negligible long-term immunity not only be recommended, but required for school attendance?

    Chicken pox (Varicella) is yet another example of a vaccine that doesn't work as well as doctors would have us believe. After one shot of the vaccine, which was licensed in the United States in 1995, about 25 percent of children were still spreading the varicella virus, or getting sick themselves. Anne Gershon, a chicken pox expert who is director of the division of pediatric infectious disease at Columbia University Medical Center, says, "We really need boosters of vaccines much more than we thought we ever would." 10 No one questions this conclusion! How many boosters would be enough? Our vaccines do not confer an immunity that lasts, so to counter this steady waning of effectiveness, more and more and more vaccines are required.

    So, in 2006, the CDC recommended that a second chicken pox shot be added to the list of childhood vaccines. Gershon says it “looks like” a second shot will keep children from getting sick -- not exactly a reassuring prediction. It is time for us to demand that the makers and proponents of these vaccines answer the question: are these marginally effective and potentially hazardous vaccines even worth the risk? Many parents are starting to think they are not, especially in a case like chicken pox, which generally causes mild disease while conferring the benefit of permanent immunity.

    The most glaring example by far of a vaccine with limited immunogenicity is the flu vaccine. Created from a combination of strains that have occurred previously, the flu vaccine is given in a type of Russian roulette, with the vaccine makers hoping that one or more of the strains might actually be the one that is most prevalent in any given year. Can they predict success with any accuracy? No. Does the flu vaccine confer any long-lasting immunity? Hardly. If it did, the CDC would not be recommending since 2010 that everyone over the age of 6 months get a flu shot every single year. On the subject of immunity, all the CDC is willing to claim is that the flu shot will last throughout the entire flu season, which is considered to be December through March – a mere 4 months!

    The evidence is overwhelming that vaccines lack the ability to confer a long-lasting immunity. Despite such evidence, however, the deck is clearly stacked on the side of the pro-vaccine CDC, FDA, and vaccine manufacturers. It seems anti-American and anti-science to be skeptical of the long-term benefit of vaccines since there seems to be such unanimity of opinion, both from the powers that be and the media. Too many Americans unquestioningly roll up their sleeves for everything the CDC recommended without considering the consequences. They want us to believe that there are no simple answers to the question of whether natural immunity caused by exposure to a germ is better than the industrial version. In fact, there are simple answers, obvious answers – but no one wants the public to stop and think about the fact that vaccines cannot be counted on to produce a lifelong immunity, while natural immunity can.

    Prior to the development of the 36 childhood vaccines that we currently give to children under 6, it was common and expected for children to get measles, chickenpox, mumps, and German measles (Rubella). These childhood diseases spread through a family, a school class, a neighborhood, usually causing annoying but relatively minor illness with a few days off from school, and then the child would recover and be immune for life. Parents actually went out of their way to expose their children to the diseases so that they could get them over with: they weren’t afraid of their children getting sick. So what happens now?

    Changing the Paradigm – Are We Crippling Our Immune Systems?

    Since widespread vaccination programs against these diseases began in the 1980s and 1990s, there tend to be fewer outbreaks of illness. But the illnesses are more severe and unexpected. Despite the reduced number of cases, proportionally more of these lead to serious illness and death. And the demographics have completely changed. Instead of the 7-10 year olds getting the mumps, it is teenagers who are currently the most affected. Likewise, instead of the same 7-10 year olds getting the measles -- the traditionally affected age group for decades -- many of the current patients are infants, who are much more likely to die from infection with the virus. Measles is especially hazardous in infants because of the risk of complications: between a quarter and a third develop some related problem, such as diarrhea, ear infections, pneumonia or encephalitis.

    Numerous studies in peer-reviewed literature have examined this finding and reach the same conclusion: women who became mothers since the mandate of the measles vaccine did not get measles as children and thus do not have solid immunity to pass on to their babies in utero and via nursing. Vaccinated women are found to have significantly fewer antibodies against measles than women with natural immunity. Infants born to vaccinated mothers have lower antibody concentrations at birth and faster decay of antibodies than infants born to women with natural immunity.12

    CDC figures show how mandated childhood vaccine has changed the face of measles. In 1976, just 3% of all cases occurred in children under age 1. Typically their mothers were born in the 1950s, well before the measles vaccine became routinely available a decade later. In the 1980s, as teen-agers who were vaccinated as children began to have babies, those numbers started to change. In 1985, almost 8% of measles cases were in infants younger than 1. By 1991, it had climbed to 19%. And in 1992, 28% of all measles cases occurred in babies under a year old.13

    Babies used to be protected from disease through maternal antibodies, but this wonderful mechanism of the human immune system is being destroyed by vaccines. If we remain on the current trajectory of exponentially increasing the numbers and types of vaccines given to both children and now to adults, will we reach the point where we no longer have natural immunity at all, thus becoming completely dependent upon short-lived, meager vaccine immunity for our very survival against disease?

    Why Aren’t Vaccines more Immunogenic?

    The process of creating a vaccine involves taking a disease agent and rendering it gradually weaker and weaker, so that the body’s own immune response is triggered and antibodies are made (referred to as humoral immunity). But there is more to the immune system than that portion of it targeted by the vaccine manufacturers. In addition to humoral immunity, which relies on antibodies, there is also cell-mediated immunity, which does not. Cell-mediated immunity involves the activation of macrophages, natural killer cells, antigen-specific cytotoxic T-lymphocytes, and the release of various cytokines in response to an antigen. 14

    What is lacking in our current method of vaccination is a way to stimulate the entire immune response instead of just a portion of it. Normal exposure to pathogens always begins in the nasal, ear, throat, and respiratory passages, never through injection. Once primary immunity has been established by infection, the antibody response follows. This allows the immune system to grow stronger and learn to bestow natural and permanent immunity to an ever-increasing number of pathogens. Vaccines injected into the body bypass cell-mediated immunity and overstimulate humoral immunity. This confuses the normal maturation and skews the functioning of the immune system. Humoral immunity becomes dominant and the crucial cell-mediated immunity is suppressed: the result can be autoimmune disease and frequent infections. Research shows that vaccinated children, compared with unvaccinated children, suffer from five times more asthma, three times more allergies, three times more ear infections, and four times more recurring tonsillitis. We have tricked the immune system into not mounting an all-out response to a foreign agent.15

    According to RM Zinkernagel of the University Hospital of Zurich Institute of Experimental Immunology: “We have not succeeded in generating truly protective vaccines against persisting infections because we cannot imitate ‘infection immunity’ that is long-lasting, generating protective T- and B-cell stimulation against variable infections without causing disease by either immunopathology or tolerance.” 16

    So now disease outbreaks create panic and fear when they occur, followed by rage against the irresponsible parents who don’t vaccinate their children for having created the problem. The argument from the pro-vaccine camp is that there wouldn't be any cases of measles at all if every child were vaccinated. As we can clearly see from the above examples, this argument simply doesn’t stand up to scrutiny.

    The Difference Between Efficacy and Effectiveness

    The gold standard of scientific study requires a double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized trial to isolate the effects of one particular intervention. In order to evaluate vaccines properly, it would be necessary for vaccine makers to take every vaccine on the market and compare a group of vaccinated individuals with a group of unvaccinated individuals under the above conditions to ascertain whether vaccines were effective and provided lasting immunity. This type of study has yet to be done. Nor has a retrospective analysis of vaccinated vs. unvaccinated individuals been undertaken. Why not? The possible result might be that we find we have been sold a bill of goods about the long term immunity and effectiveness of vaccines.

    Instead we have clinical trials in which individuals are vaccinated and success is measured by attaining a certain antibody titer in the blood. The protective level is arbitrarily assigned by the researcher. If enough vaccinated subjects attain the designated level, the vaccine is proclaimed to have efficacy. But is this the same as being effective? No. To be effective a vaccine would have to prevent disease, but effectiveness is never put to the test. The problem with proving efficacy is that antibody levels do not necessarily correlate with the immune system’s ability to fight off disease. One rare prospective study which attempted to evaluate this issue as it relates to vaccinating the elderly with the flu vaccine found that pre- and post-vaccination antibody titers – whether high or low -- did not distinguish between subjects who would subsequently develop influenza and those who would not.17 How can we know if a vaccine will work or not prior to it being released to the public? We can’t! According to an article in the peer-reviewed journal Clinical Infectious Diseases,18 since it is too difficult to prove effectiveness, the only way to try to evaluate vaccines is to scrutinize the epidemiological data obtained from real-life conditions. In other words, researchers simply cannot -- or will not -- adequately test a vaccine’s effectiveness and immunogenicity prior to its release onto an unsuspecting public. The true testing occurs after the fact. Only instead of “surveillance,” it is more likely that vaccine manufacturers will try to keep adverse reactions and evidence of vaccine failure from the public. The party line is always that since actual results occur outside the limits of a clinical study, they are not reliable.19

    The vaccine industry falsely claims that its vaccines work exactly the same way as active immunity. As we have shown, vaccines do not produce the same quality and strength of antibodies that one’s own body would produce from a natural infection and recovery, nor do they initiate cell-mediated immunity. There are two major types of vaccines: inactivated/killed and live attenuated. Inactivated/killed vaccines are inefficient because some of the antibodies will be produced against parts of the pathogen that play no role in causing disease, and some of the antigens contained within the vaccine may actually down-regulate the body’s adaptive response. Also, vaccines of this type do not give rise to cytotoxic T cells which can be important for stopping infections by intracellular pathogens. Live attenuated vaccines may cause the illness they are designed to protect against either because they revert to virulence, or because for some individuals they aren’t sufficiently attenuated.20 If vaccine protection fades over time, then people are being persuaded to risk their health for a dubious benefit.

    What Actually Caused the Decline of Major Viral Diseases?

    Vaccination clearly does not guarantee immunity. So what about the decline of small pox, polio, tetanus, measles, and diphtheria? Looking at the epidemiological data it is apparent that many, if not most, infectious diseases started declining noticeably prior to vaccines due to significant improvements in the way we live. Sanitation, proper sewage disposal, clean water, improved nutrition, indoor plumbing, less-crowded living conditions, elimination of child labor and better hygiene were the real reasons disease incidence declined. Polio started declining in the US in the 1920s, from 7,229 cases in 1921 down to 3,826 cases in 1951. By the time the vaccine became widespread in 1961, the number of cases was already down to 1,076. There is no convincing scientific evidence that mass inoculation can be credited with eliminating any infectious disease. Further, if vaccinations were responsible for the disappearance of these diseases in the US, why did they simultaneously disappear in Europe prior to mass vaccinations?21

    The following graphs show that large drops in disease death rates occurred long before vaccines were introduced. From 1900 to 1963, when the measles vaccine was introduced, death rates from measles had declined from 13.3 per 100,000 to 0.2 per 100,000 – a 98% decrease. From 1900 to 1949, death rates from whooping cough declined from 12.2 per 100,000 to 0.5 per 100,000 – a 96% decrease. From 1900 to 1949, death rates from diphtheria declined from 40.3 per 100,000 to 0.4 per 100,000 – a 99% decrease. These graphs demonstrate clear and major changes in the severity of diseases well before any vaccines were introduced.22

    Figure 1. Death rates from Measles

    Figure 2. Death rates from Diphtheria

    Figure 3. Death rates from Pertussis

    Looking at the raw data from England during 1838-1922, 23 as shown in the next figure, we see that despite enforced vaccinations against smallpox, there was no significant decrease in deaths from the disease. In fact, three major epidemics during 1857-1859, 1863-1865, and 1871-1872 occurred, even though there was a high vaccination rate. The last major epidemic in 1871-1872 had death rates of 101.2 and 82.1 per 100,000 people respectively, occurring just four years after a newer and more strict vaccination law was enacted in 1867.

    Death Rates in England and Wales from Smallpox and Scarlet Fever 24

    Public health interventions such as good hygiene measures, isolation, and physical barriers have a much better evidence base than vaccines. The data suggest that implementing such measures are effective and relatively cheap interventions to contain epidemics of respiratory viruses, with estimates of effect ranging from 55% to 91%!25 Yet little discussion ever appears in the press to help people understand the measures they can take to best protect themselves against viral or bacterial disease, aside from vaccination. In fact, our reliance on vaccination in the US may have the effect of breeding feelings of invulnerability – therefore ignoring simple hygiene measures – while the encouragement of early treatment with antiviral drugs leads people to show up at the hospital at the first sniffle, thus magnifying the possibility of disease spread.

    Despite the decline in major viral diseases, there is a concern now whether these diseases are making a comeback, as we see from the recent outbreaks of whooping cough, measles, and chicken pox. Could this be due to the fact that, instead of lifelong immunity, what we have now for people younger than the Baby Boomer generation is an artificial immunity based on vaccines whose efficacy wanes over time? Meanwhile, we are being deluged by the propaganda that tells us unrelentingly that we must subject our children and ourselves to multiple and frequent vaccines to save us from disease, and we fall in step with the program. Vaccines are a huge business – pharmaceutical companies are inventing new vaccines every year, all with the hope of their being included in the mandated vaccine schedule, thus generating billions in profit on an ever-increasing basis. Unless parents sign exemption forms, children must be vaccinated before they can get into school. This is the law, and legislation is controlled by lobbying, with the pharmaceutical lobby being at least the second most powerful in Washington. Vaccines are also the cornerstone of all the “well baby” programs, and so fuel the livelihood of the entire pediatric industry. Increasingly, the well baby program has morphed into a well-adult program. As diseases previously confined to childhood are affecting adults with no naturally derived immunity, we are all being pressured into getting more and more vaccines. Is there no surprise, then, that there are never any follow-up studies by the manufacturers about long-term effectiveness of vaccines? It would hardly be in their interest to do a study that might end up proving the worthlessness of their products and the permanent damage to our immune systems.

    By Gary Null and Nancy Ashley

    "Currently, the American public through our government agencies, the CDC, the FDA the US Public Health Service, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases is being told that only by vaccinating all children and infants, all adults and seniors can we confer complete protective immunity from major diseases, whether H1N1, the seasonal flu, chicken pox, measles, hepatitis, etc. to any given individual. Their arguments have never been put to the test. It is virtually impossible to have open, independent, objective scientific and public health discourse. You either accept without challenge that vaccines provide permanent lifetime immunity, or you are immediately relegated as a quack. However, a careful analysis and review of the scientific literature shows that no vaccine or combination of vaccines can be proven to confer complete immunity and be safe..."

    The campaign attempting to link tetanus toxoid vaccine to hCG is explained here:…

    "After these rumours were spread, attempts were made to analyse TT vaccines for the presence of hCG. The vaccines were sent to hospital laboratories and tested using pregnancy test kits which are developed for use on serum and urine specimens and are not appropriate for use on a vaccine such as TT, which contains a special preservative (merthiolate) and an adjuvant (aluminum salt). As a result of using these inappropriate tests, low levels of hCG-like activity were found in some samples of TT vaccine. The laboratories themselves recognised the significance of these results, which were below the reliable detection capabilities of the adjuvant or other substances in the the vaccine and the test kit. However, these results were misrepresented by 'pro-life groups with the resulting disruption of immunisation programmes.

    When the vaccines were tested in laboratories which used properly validated test systems, the results showed that the vaccines clearly did not contain hCG."


    Homeopathy is a talking therapy reinforced by placebo: and therefore the suggestion it can prevent potentially life-threatening disease is stupid, dangerous and wrong.


    The mortality rate for infants with Pertussis is a little less that 1% (…) - morbidity is more common (with pneumonia occuring in around 20%).

    "On the basis of the rate of decline before 1940, 4,000-8,000 deaths from pertussis would be expected to hve occurred in 1970-1974; however, only 52 such deaths occurred. It is unlikely that factors other than pertussis vaccine caused this decline in mortality. Therefore, the vaccine's benefit-risk ratio probably is high."

    As you have noted, it requires a great deal of time to read through and debunk the volume of copy pasta you have been posting.

    There is a very obvious strawman in the piece by Gary Null you copied regarding vaccination and immunisation:

    No one would argue that vaccines provide permanent immunity - it's the same kind of misunderstanding that talks about vaccines being 100% safe or effective.

    That's why booster shots are necessary.

    How to detox aluminum and why it's necessary

    "We are in the "Age of Aluminum", this according to a lecture by Dr. Chris Exley, PhD at a January 2011 vaccine safety conference in Jamaica. A common expression among those who deflect aluminum's toxicity issues is that aluminum is prominent throughout the earth's crust. What they fail to mention is that aluminum (Al) wasn't widely bioavailable to humans until the latter part of the 19th Century when it began to be mined for creating metals and medicines.

    Now we have aluminum appearing in cookware, wrapping foils, beverage and food containers, underarm deodorants, tobacco, over the counter (OTC) and prescribed medicines, and as adjuvants in vaccines. Al is highly reactive with other chemicals and creates antigens to stimulate immune system antibody responses in vaccines. But the mechanics of these reactions are not understood by Big Pharma.

    Dr. Exley, has been focused on aluminum biochemical mechanics for two decades, and doesn't claim to know all the answers. But he knows how wrong those who do claim to have all the answers are, and they are among the ranks of Al toxicity danger naysayers and the vaccine industry.

    Aluminum body burdens We all have some level of Al in us with which are bodies are coping. The tissues most prone to collecting and storing aluminum are those tissues with a slow cellular turnover. Cells die off and regenerate quickly on the skin, but not so quickly in bone matter, heart tissue and the brain. Those last three organs that don't have a rapid cellular turnover are most prone to collecting and storing Al.

    Yes, the brain stores quite a of bit Al. And that's where MS, chronic fatigue syndromes, epilepsy, ADD, Alzheimer's, Guilliane-Barre' syndrome (a common post vaccination injury) and other neurological disorders manifest. Aluminum compounds that are injected bypass the liver and kidneys and tend to remain in slow cellular replacing tissues.

    Non-ingested Al also includes smoking tobacco or marijuana, applied sunscreens and cosmetics and chemtrails. All vaccinations contain Al. Claiming they're safe without mercury, as some A1 proponents do, is incorrect. Exley also mentioned that most vaccines contain some iron -- iron combined with aluminum creates a highly biochemically-reactive compound.

    Chemtrails are not contrails. They are real. All samples collected worldwide contained aluminum and more (

    In the last 100 years, we have managed to increase the Al body burden considerably. The threshold for Al toxicity varies. But the incredible increase in neurological disorders during this "Age of Aluminum" demonstrates the need for eliminating it from our bodies as much as possible.

    Easy methods for eliminating Al Dr. Exley mentions one agent that pushes out stored Al from our bodies: High silica content mineral water. He mentioned two brands, Volvic, which is sold at various Whole Food and Trader Joe stores, and Spritzer, which is harder to find.

    He and his team of researchers have tested the urine to prove high silica content mineral waters do the trick. He even presented anecdotal evidence of Gardasil adverse-reaction victims improving after a few months of drinking this type of water. He recommends drinking a liter a day to reduce your aluminum body burden.

    But that water's a little pricey. You can order an inexpensive pound of horsetail herbs and make teas and tinctures to accommodate a less expendable budget. Making tinctures is easy ( Organic cucumbers are high in silica also and provide yet another alternative.

    As long as there pockets of Al stored in our bodies, the potential for passing the threshold of absolute toxicity exists. Reducing the Al burden is vital for optimum health even when you manage to avoid the most common sources.
