AP IMPACT: 'Vaccine court' keeps claimants waitingNov 17, 1:34 PM EST
WASHINGTON (AP) -- All but broken by her son's violent and unexplained seizures, by so many panicked trips from the crib to the emergency room, Jeffrey McCord's mom thought her desperate search for both answers and help was finally over.
A respected neurologist had drawn a connection that a dozen other doctors missed: Jeffrey's convulsions began days after a routine vaccination, the kind given safely to millions of American children.
While Jeffrey's injuries were devastating, his parents were told they might not have to bear the costs alone. The doctor explained that Jeffrey could apply for lifelong care paid for by the federal government. The program's premise is simple: quickly and generously support people in the rare cases when a shot to prevent a sickness such as flu or measles instead is the likely cause of serious health complications.
But 11 years would pass before the McCord family would receive its first check.

5 Seniors Die after Flu Shot at Assisted Care Center in Georgia
Health Impact News
Health Impact News has just received urgent information from health care workers at Hope Assisted Living & Memory Care in Dacula, Georgia. According to our informants, on Friday November 7, 2014, all the residents received flu vaccinations. They all reportedly developed a fever immediately, and within one week, five of the residents died.
According to its website, Hope Assisted Living & Memory Care specializes in Alzheimer’s and Dementia care. Our sources indicate that 5 fatalities in one week is extremely unusual, as the center “maybe loses a couple of people every 6 months or longer to Alzheimers.” One source stated to Health Impact News:
The facility is not saying they are related to the flu shot but we all know they are, and they know they are.
Healthcare workers across the U.S. fear to speak out against injuries due to vaccines, as it usually costs them their job. If you know anyone with family members at this facility near Atlanta Georgia, please demand an investigation immediately.

Vaccine-Injured Child Kidnapped from Family by Child Protective ServicesNovember 15 2014
Vaccine injury and medical kidnapping stories are becoming commonplace. They are often connected. One mother never thought for a second that vaccinating her child would tear her family apart.
Rebekah McClain wants parents to learn what her family is almost unbelievably dealing with because they chose to vaccinate. No child deserves to suffer through this pain. This is her true story.

The Vaccine Court by Wayne Rohde [Book]
A hard look at the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program and the families desperately trying to navigate their way through it.
The Vaccine Court looks at the mysterious and often unknown world of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP), the only recourse for seeking compensation for those who have been injured by a vaccine. The NVICP, better known as the ”Vaccine Court,” however, is not without controversy.
Established by Congress as a direct result of the passage of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986, the NVICP was supposed to offer a no-fault alternative to the traditional injury claims filed in state or federal courts and was to provide quick, efficient, and fair compensation for those who have been injured by vaccines. The reality, however, is that many cases take several years or longer to complete and require tremendous commitment from families already pushed to the brink of bankruptcy caring for the vaccine-injured family member, only to discover that the end result is manipulated by the government in defense of the US vaccine policy.

Russian Scientists Link H1N1 to GMO FoodsApril 7, 2011
The alarming news that Russian scientists have made a direct link of the H1N1 Virus to Genetically Modified Foods is more disturbing than the US government allowing such contaminants in the American food supply. Most consumers are aware that GMO foods now unlabeled may have more of a punch in store when they consume these highly chemically altered foods.
The Russian Ministry of Health has issued the alert that US potato ( a favorite of the fast foods chains serving – french fries by the millions of pounds per day) are genetically modified amylopectin potatoes.
This report indicates the protease enzyme GMO potato was engineered to protect against virus X, but the real reason for this GMO is to spread the H1N1 influenza virus and release the H1N1 RNA into the host cells.
Prior to 2008 it was the flu, then the influenza flu, then the Type A Influenza flu then in 2009 it was the H1N1 Swine Flu that combined a bird flu, human flu and swine flu all rolled into one big Swine Flu manufactured in a laboratory with the Human Spanish Flu of 1918 which was stored in a laboratory had not been seen for over 100 years. Now the specimens have branched out like never before morphing into all types, subtypes, variations and are alphabetized.

‘A mass sterilization exercise’: Kenyan doctors find anti-fertility agent in UN tetanus vaccineNov 6, 2014
UPDATE (Nov. 12): Kenya's government has launched an investigation into the Catholic Church's allegations. See follow up article here.
Kenya’s Catholic bishops are charging two United Nations organizations with sterilizing millions of girls and women under cover of an anti-tetanus inoculation program sponsored by the Kenyan government.
According to a statement released Tuesday by the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association, the organization has found an antigen that causes miscarriages in a vaccine being administered to 2.3 million girls and women by the World Health Organization and UNICEF. Priests throughout Kenya reportedly are advising their congregations to refuse the vaccine.
“We sent six samples from around Kenya to laboratories in South Africa. They tested positive for the HCG antigen,” Dr. Muhame Ngare of the Mercy Medical Centre in Nairobi told LifeSiteNews. “They were all laced with HCG.”

23 Seniors Died After Receiving This Year’s Flu Shot Sold by Pharmacies
While this year’s flu shot is already being aggressively marketed to seniors at the nation’s chain drug stores, what is not being reported is that 23 seniors died after receiving this vaccine during the drug trials, as is revealed in the drug manufacturers’ package insert. During drug trials, there were 249 serious adverse events, including 23 deaths, out of only 3833 participants.
If this does not constitute a dangerous drug that should probably not even be on the market, then I don’t know what does. And yet, this high-dose flu vaccine with 4 times the antigens of the regular vaccine, is sold to unsuspecting seniors and others like candy at these drug stores.

Genocide Against Our Children Continues: Media Says Nothing, CDC LiesBy Dr. David Brownstein September 20, 2014
I can’t believe that I am still writing this, but the genocide of our children continues. This is the fourth blog post about the CDC whistleblower, Dr. William Thompson, who co-authored the adulterated 2004 study which claimed the MMR vaccine was not associated with autism. Dr. Thompson has admitted that the paper’s data was altered to hide a 240% increase in autism in African American children who were vaccinated before 36 months of age when they were compared to those vaccinated later. Furthermore, there was a 69% increase risk in autism in all male children who received the MMR vaccine before 36 months. (1) Under emotional and mental distress over what happened, Dr. Thompson contacted Brian Hooker, PhD who has a son with autism caused by vaccine injury. Dr. Thompson gave Dr. Hooker the missing 2004 data which Dr. Hooker recently published in the Translational Neurodegeneration Journal. (2)

What Every Hospital Should Know Before Implementing a Mandatory Flu Shot Policy2011: Issue 7 - Focus on Antitrust
The Effectiveness of Permissive Flu Shot Policies
In many states, flu shot vaccination rates must be reported along with health contradiction and other exemptions. Flu shots are generally not mandatory for health care workers in an acute care environment. The decision to require flu shots is left to each hospital. While offering, as opposed to mandating, staff flu shots avoids legal and operational complications, hospitals need to balance employee rights with what is in the best interests of their patients.

Lawsuits Against Hospitals Begin for Loss of Employment due to Mandatory Flu ShotsNovember 19, 2014

So we did some research and we found out that there are lawsuits around the country currently in litigation from healthcare workers who have lost their jobs as a result of refusing the seasonal flu vaccine. Here are some that are being reported:

Hazards of Nasal Flu Vaccine as Program is Rolled Out in British SchoolsAugust 01, 2014
This is an update of my article ‘UK Department of Health Deliberately Exposes Vulnerable Population to Flu Infection’ of May last year as the British government rolls out the program to entire school population this autumn (a product called Fluenz identical with Flumist used in the US). Recent draft minutes of the government advisory committee, the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation, show it to be in a double-bind over asthma cases and uncertain about egg allergy: “extrapolating findings on injectable vaccines to Fluenz® was problematic as nasal administration may be a more reactogenic route than intramuscular injection". (See HERE.) They will still be testing this with program in full gear.
The other problem they have is that the vaccine is “contraindicated for severe asthma” so they have to devise formal guidelines for which asthma sufferers should have the vaccine and which should not, but it begs the problem that the more severely affected asthma sufferers will be exposed to the viruses (which they might well not otherwise have come into contact with) by their schoolmates shedding them, turning on the head the proposition that they are protecting the vulnerable by vaccinating the fit. While the ethical problem is not stated it surely hovers silently above their deliberations and calls into question the very principles of the program (other than making lots of money for someone). The relevant portions of the text of the JCVI minutes follow that of my article as originally published.

Haley vs Offit: A Virtual Debate re The Greatest Medical Controversy of our Time
Bio-chemist Dr. Boyd Haley disputes the claims of vaccine proponent Dr. Paul Offit point by point in our pilot video.
Dr. Offit appears often on national television as an expert on vaccination. By not inviting any of his many critics, the mainstream media gives the impression that he has none. This false impression leaves the public uninformed on the very real threats posed to children’s health through an overly aggressive vaccine program that now recommends children receive an astounding 48 vaccines by the age of six.

Vaccine specialist J. Anthony Morris dies at 95July 3, 2014
J. Anthony Morris, a federal vaccine specialist who was forced into retirement after public disagreements with superior officers over the efficiency of federal vaccine programs and the effectiveness of influenza vaccines, died May 31 at a health-care center in Hyattsville, Md. He was 95.
The cause was congestive heart failure, said his daughter, Cam Esser.
Dr. Morris was chief vaccine officer for the Bureau of Biological Standards at the National Institutes of Health and later with the Food and Drug Administration, when the bureau was transferred to that agency in the 1970s.
He argued that research carried out by his unit demonstrated that there was no reliable proof that vaccines were effective in preventing influenza, and he accused the government of basing its mass vaccine programs for flu primarily on claims made by pharmaceutical manufacturers.

United States Supreme Court Parental Rights CaseLaw
How Child Protection Services Buys and Sells Our Children
In the early 1920s, the United States Supreme Court first reviewed the rights, liberties and obligations of parents to direct the upbringing of their children. Two important decisions, Meyer v. Nebraska and Pierce v. Society of Sisters, established a legacy which was followed by a series of decisions holding that parenting is a fundamental constitutional right, and among “the basic civil rights of man.”Choices about marriage, family life, and the upbringing of children are among those rights the Court has ranked as “of basic importance in our society,” and as sheltered by the 14th Amendment against the State’s unwarranted usurpation, disregard, or disrespect.
Assembled here are a majority of those cases defining or reaffirming these fundamental rights. Links are provided to each case on the FindLaw Internet Legal Resources service. Each is in hypertext format, with links to related opinions of the court contained in the ruling.

Pertussis found in one fifth of vaccinated children25th Jun 2014
PERTUSSIS can still be diagnosed in up to one fifth of fully-vaccinated school-age children who present to their GP with a persistent cough.
In a study of 279 children aged 5-15 years who presented with a persistent cough, defined as lasting two to eight weeks duration, to 22 general practices in the Thames Valley in the UK, researchers from the University of Oxford and Public Health England found 56 children had evidence of recent pertussis infection, including 39 of the 215 children who were fully vaccinated against whooping cough.
The researchers also calculated cough frequencies for six of the fully-vaccinated children diagnosed with laboratory confirmed pertussis and found that four of the children coughed more than 400 times in 24 hours.
Furthermore, the risk of pertussis was more than three times higher in children who had received the pertussis booster less than seven years previously.

Researcher Charged in HIV Vaccine Fraud CaseJune 24th 2014
Responding to a major case of research misconduct, federal prosecutors have taken the rare step of filing charges against a scientist after he admitted falsifying data that led to millions in grants and hopes of a breakthrough in AIDS vaccine research.
Investigators say former Iowa State University laboratory manager Dong-Pyou Han has confessed to spiking samples of rabbit blood with human antibodies to make an experimental HIV vaccine appear to have great promise.
After years of work and millions in National Institutes of Health grants, another laboratory uncovered irregularities that suggested the results — once hailed as groundbreaking — were bogus.

Vaccine Fraud: Total Balance of Evidence Indicates Vaccines Neither Safe Nor Effective
Vaccine fraud is becoming more and more widespread.
GlaxoSmithKline is facing more than double jeopardy31 May 2014
GlaxoSmithKline’s problems are multiplying fast. In China authorities have identified 46 individuals connected to the company they claim were involved in “massive and systemic bribery”.
In the UK the Serious Fraud Office (SFO) marked out its pitch this week, revealing it has opened an official investigation into allegations of bribery; and an internal GSK probe is looking at potential wrongdoing in Jordan and Lebanon.
Given the slew of allegations so far it seems a fair assumption that other international law enforcement agencies, notably the US Department of Justice, will be taking a long, close look at the allegations.
The GSK bribery bus has barely left the terminus.
The interest from international authorities flows almost directly from the extraterritorial reach of the UK Bribery Act and US Foreign and Corrupt Practices Act. The legislation allows prosecutors from the two jurisdictions to press charges as long as they can firstly prove wrongdoing and, secondly, show that the company, in this case GSK, has operations within its territory.

Banned flu vax still given to young kidsMariza O'Keefe AAP June 17, 2014
REPORTS of some doctors giving young children a banned flu vaccination "defies belief", Australia's chief medical officer says.
THE bioCSL Fluvax was suspended from use for children under five years old after an increase in febrile convulsions in children was linked to the vaccine in 2010. Earlier this month a five-year-old Perth girl received a confidential multi-million dollar payout after becoming severely disabled after receiving the bioCSL Fluvax in 2010.
Despite this, in 2013 there were 43 reported cases of the bioCSL Fluvax administered to children under five. So far this year there had been 31 cases, Professor Chris Baggoley said.

Deaths from vaccine: Health minister suspends 17 officials for negligenceBy Hidayat Khan Published: June 14, 2014
PESHAWAR: As many as 17 senior and junior officials of the provincial health department were suspended on Friday after the committee investigating child fatalities reportedly due to the measles vaccine submitted its report.
Addressing a news conference at the Civil Secretariat on Friday, Minister for Health Shahram Khan Tarakai said Tariq, an Expanded Programme on Immunisation (EPI) technician, Majid, a supervisor, and Zarif, a helper, had been suspended after the enquiry report held them responsible for the deaths of four children in the provincial capital during the measles vaccination campaign.
Furthermore, Tarakai suspended EPI Provincial Coordinator Dr Janbaz Khan Afridi over “failure to run the measles campaign smoothly.”
The minister added the enquiry committee’s report showed several officials of government hospitals were negligent in their duties while dealing with children brought to the hospital after fainting from the vaccine.

Still Covering Up: the New Autism Speaks/JAMA Study of the Cost of AutismJune 12, 2014 By John Stone
"The present study seems to do two things: regard notional cases based on a half-baked theory of general prevalence as actual, but also underestimating costs of individual real cases by more that three times (on a breakdown of their own figures)."
The other matter I cannot reconcile is the lifetime costs. The paper determines that the lifetime cost in the UK of a person with autism and ID is £1.5 million ($2.2m). Even in 2001 Järbrink and Knapp stated: “The lifetime cost for a person with autism exceeded £2.4 million” ($3.8m). But the new paper also gives a yearly cost for an autistic adult with ID in the UK as £86,981 (table 2) and £86,099 ($126,430 - table 4) and £1.5m only amounts to about 17 years’ worth. Using the figures provided for childhood costs in Table 2 and a projected average lifetime of 67 years we get a grand total of £4,864,911 (about $7.8m): more like it, perhaps, but still I fear rather optimistic. This is our new autistic workforce. We ain’t heard nothing yet: the real financial tsunami is on its way.

Flu vaccine leads to $11.6 million government settlement for paralyzed former nurse
A former nurse will receive an $11.6 million government settlement to pay for future care after a flu vaccination left her paralyzed. The news could fuel another round of debate about whether vaccines should be mandated for staff in long-term care and other health fields.
Sarah Behie, 24, received the flu vaccination in October 2010 while working at Lehigh Valley Hospital, according to the Allentown Morning Call. Three weeks later, she experienced weakness and tingling in her limbs. She subsequently was diagnosed with Guillain-Barré syndrome — a neuromuscular disease in which the immune system attacks the nervous system.
Since then, she has been in the care of hospitals, nursing homes and rehabilitation centers. She reportedly has lost the use of her legs and can barely use her upper body.

THE parents of a WA girl who has been awarded millions in damages after a defective flu jab left her severely disabled say they it’s a “massive relief” the legal battle is over.
Mick and Kirsten Button’s daughter Saba was just 11 months old when she received the Fluvax shot in April 2010.
The then toddler suffered a hypoxic brain injury, kidney, liver and bone marrow failure. She can now no longer walk and talk and needs round-the-clock care.
Three days after Saba was admitted at Princess Margaret Hospital, Fluvax was recalled. It is now banned for children under five.

The Oxymoron of Safe VaccinesJune 10, 2014
Managing Editor's Note: As we continue to discuss vaccine safety, remember that vaccines have been designated as "unavoidably unsafe," “No vaccine manufacturer shall be liable in a civil action for damages arising from a vaccine-related injury or death associated with the administration of a vaccine after October 1, 1988, if the injury or death resulted from side effects that were unavoidable even though the vaccine was properly prepared and was accompanied by proper directions and warnings.” §300aa–22(b)(1). See Cornell Legal Information for more. The following post is a response to this article on the SafeMinds site Dear Parents, you are being deceived about vaccines and autism.
By Laura Hayes
I still think it is of paramount importance for people to understand that the term "safe vaccines" is an oxymoron, and therefore, I would argue that even those who might call themselves "pro-science" would not agree that there is any "smart approach to vaccination".

Counties sue narcotics makers, alleging 'campaign of deception'May 21, 2014
Two California counties sued five of the world's largest narcotics manufacturers on Wednesday, accusing the companies of causing the nation's prescription drug epidemic by waging a "campaign of deception" aimed at boosting sales of potent painkillers such as OxyContin.
Officials from Orange and Santa Clara counties — both hit hard by overdose deaths, emergency room visits and escalating medical costs associated with prescription narcotics — contend the drug makers violated California laws against false advertising, unfair business practices and creating a public nuisance.
In sweeping language reminiscent of the legal attack against the tobacco industry, the lawsuit alleges the drug companies have reaped blockbuster profits by manipulating doctors into believing the benefits of narcotic painkillers outweighed the risks, despite "a wealth of scientific evidence to the contrary." The effort "opened the floodgates" for such drugs and "the result has been catastrophic," the lawsuit contends.
The complaint accuses the companies of encouraging patients, including well-insured veterans and the elderly, to ask their doctors for the painkillers to treat common conditions such as headaches, arthritis and back pain.
The widespread prescribing of narcotics has created "a population of addicts" and triggered a resurgence in the use of heroin, which produces a similar high to opiate-based painkillers, but is cheaper, the suit says.

Revelations ~ by Shawn SiegelOctober 19, 2013
There are 8,000 different adverse vaccine reactions listed in the complete CDC’s VAERS database. (1) The majority of them are what we would expect; nausea, swelling at the injection site, crying, fever, and the like. Though such reactions are universally characterized as normal by the medical community, they are not . They may be typical vaccine reactions, but they’re the body’s response to the noxious ingredients; they’re not normal. In most folks, a temperature of 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit is normal; fever is not. A limber arm is normal; one pained by a hot, hardened lump, the result of aggregated aluminum from a vaccine adjuvant, is not. (2) Moreover, though vaccine reactions vary in severity, a reaction at any level is often a harbinger of more severe reactions to subsequent vaccinations.

And, as any trendspotter knows, lifestyle trends that take hold in California typically spread to the rest of the country over time.
How strong is this trend?
Estimates are that only 20% of children that attend some private schools in the Los Angeles area are vaccinated.

Two more children killed due to anti-measles vaccineJun 01, 2014
CHARSADDA: [pakistan] In yet another incident of getting anti-measles vaccine two more children were killed on Sunday in Charsadda district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, DawnNews reported.
The total number of deaths due to anti-measles vaccine rose to seven from different districts of the province during the ongoing 12-day campaign against measles.
Ministry of National Health Services decided earlier, to hold a nationwide vaccination campaign against measles to mark the World Immunisation Week Campaign during which children less than 10 years old will be vaccinated against measles.
Previously, two children were killed in Charsadda whereas three others were killed in Peshawar due to the reaction of anti-measles vaccine.

Lawrence Solomon: Vaccines can’t prevent measles outbreaksMay 1, 201
Measles in highly immunized societies occurs primarily among those previously immunized
The recent outbreaks of measles in Canada and the United States came as a shock to many public health experts but they wouldn’t have to Dr. Gregory Poland, one of the world’s most admired, most advanced thinkers in the field of vaccinology.
The measles vaccine has failed, he explained two years ago in a prescient paper, “The re-emergence of measles in developed countries.” In that paper, he warned that due to factors that most haven’t noticed, measles has come back to be a serious public health threat. Thankfully, in that paper and elsewhere he also spelled out in no-nonsense fashion what now needs to be done.

Vaccination and Renal Patients: A critical examination of assumed safety and effectivenessOctober 4, 2011
Nephrologists are in the position of overseeing the health of patients with inflammatory kidney diseases of unknown origin, autoimmune disorders, and acute and chronic kidney diseases of many etiologies. A nephrologist is a specialist consultant and the patients we see are often referred by family doctors and internal medicine physicians. Several doctors who routinely refer patients to me have unquestioningly accepted the idea that “vaccines are safe for everyone” and the “benefit outweighs the small risk.” They inquired about my reasoning to withhold vaccinations in sick kidney patients.

The Measles Scare and CDC PoliticsLatest update: July 11th, 2013
At the instigation of the Federal Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), a number of prominent Jewish pediatricians have stepped forward to warn the Jewish community that they must immediately subject their children to the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) 3-in-1 combination vaccine.
The reason given is that there have been a number of measles cases in the Jewish community, and, therefore, parents must immediately protect their children.
I propose to give an alternative view, based on five years of research into the vaccine industry and the practices of the DOHMH and the CDC.
With all due respect to the fine pediatricians in our community who do their best to care for our young children, I strongly differ with their statement that “there is no credible evidence that the MMR vaccination causes mental or physical damage to children.”

The Media Pigpile on Families of Vaccine Injured Children
Media pressure directed at vaccine injured families has been ramped up in recent months, coinciding with the March 2014 release of the latest ASD prevalence numbers. Main stream media editorials label vaccine cautious parents as “whackos” and worse. Hate speech, phony “astro –turf” public relation campaigns, and unqualified “experts” such as Dorit Reiss are the tools being used in a naked pharma funded power grab aimed at rescinding parental rights of informed medical consent.
The Washington Post, New York Times, The Daily Beast, Time Magazine and a cast of similar hundreds all recently released eerily similar editorials condemning parental vaccine choice. Time Magazine's Jeff Kluger describes parents exercising careful, informed medical consent as "morally equivalent" to "Extremists in the Middle East and Africa." His bigoted hate speech includes the terms "vaccine crazies” and "extremists anti vaccine nut jobs.”

Vaccine-induced immune overload now affects majority of US children, study findsMay 29, 2014
(NaturalNews) Immunity is crucial. But the artificial kind brought about by vaccines can be extremely damaging, especially when the body's immune response is too strong. A groundbreaking new study published in the peer-reviewed journal Molecular and Genetic Medicine highlights the consequences of this vaccine-induced immune overload, stating that the majority of American children now suffer from the often debilitating condition.
Dr. J. Bart Classen, M.D., an immunologist with extensive knowledge about vaccine adverse events, recently investigated the current epidemic of inflammatory diseases among children. Cases of type-1 diabetes, type-2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, autoimmune disorders, asthma and food allergies have been steadily increasing over the years, corresponding directly with an increase in the number of vaccines on the official vaccination schedule for children.

White House admits staging fake vaccination operation to gather DNA from the publicMay 27, 2014
NaturalNews) The White House has officially admitted that fake vaccination programs have been used by the United States as a cover for covertly stealing DNA samples from the public as part of the so-called "war on terror." The aim of the scheme, carried out in the Middle East, was to use DNA analysis to identify suspected terrorists who would then be targeted to be killed by the United States.
As the New York Times reported in 2011, "In the months before Osama bin Laden was killed, the Central Intelligence Agency ran a phony vaccination program in Abbottabad, Pakistan, as a ruse to obtain DNA evidence from members of Bin Laden's family thought to be holed up in an expansive compound there."

Neurobehavioural effects of developmental toxicityThe Lancet Neurology, Volume 13, Issue 3, Pages 330 - 338, March 2014
Neurodevelopmental disabilities, including autism, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyslexia, and other cognitive impairments, affect millions of children worldwide, and some diagnoses seem to be increasing in frequency. Industrial chemicals that injure the developing brain are among the known causes for this rise in prevalence. In 2006, we did a systematic review and identified five industrial chemicals as developmental neurotoxicants: lead, methylmercury, polychlorinated biphenyls, arsenic, and toluene. Since 2006, epidemiological studies have documented six additional developmental neurotoxicants—manganese, fluoride, chlorpyrifos, dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane, tetrachloroethylene, and the polybrominated diphenyl ethers. We postulate that even more neurotoxicants remain undiscovered. To control the pandemic of developmental neurotoxicity, we propose a global prevention strategy. Untested chemicals should not be presumed to be safe to brain development, and chemicals in existing use and all new chemicals must therefore be tested for developmental neurotoxicity. To coordinate these efforts and to accelerate translation of science into prevention, we propose the urgent formation of a new international clearinghouse.

Compass: Parents right to question need for vaccines and potential dangers
In "Vaccination is a duty we owe to others," The Washington Post's Michael Gerson wrote a convincing piece - that is, if one is unaware of certain facts.
Gerson states "...vaccines have a very small risk of serious side effects..." mostly based on his wholesale dismissal of adverse events reported to VAERS, the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System instituted and maintained at a great cost by the CDC and the FDA. As of May 4, 2014, the CDC website had processed 37,433 serious vaccine-related adverse events. Former FDA Commissioner David Kessler once stated that only 1 percent of serious adverse events are reported in a passive reporting system such as VAERS. A vaccine manufacturer testified to an Institute of Medicine Committee that under-reporting of passively followed adverse vaccine events was 50-fold.

Science says vaccines not always safeWednesday, May 21, 2014 By LESLIE J. MANOOKIAN and KENDALL NELSON

Polish study says vaccines have no historical benefits, continue to cause neurological damageMay 18, 2014
(NaturalNews) The public health benefits commonly attributed to vaccines are greatly overblown, and the science shows that vaccines actually obstruct normal immune development rather than enhance it. These are among the multiple inconvenient findings of a Polish research study that was published in the journal Progressive Health Sciences back in 2012, which exposes the fraud of vaccines by highlighting how their risks far outweigh any perceived benefits.

This ‘Misdirection Tactic’ is Used by Mainstream Media When Reporting OutbreaksMay 18 2014
All of the reports have strong, accusatory titles, with reporters repeatedly emphasizing the need for vaccination. They stress how parents who do not vaccinate their children are putting thousands of children at risk from potentially deadly diseases.
However, if you examine what is being written more closely, what they are actually saying is something entirely different. Hidden somewhere in the report will be a sentence with crucial information that many parents may miss. This information is hidden so well by the reporter that by the time most readers get to it, they will have been completely brainwashed by the rest of the information and are therefore unlikely to notice its significance.
This tactic is known as misdirection.

Measles virus infection without rash in childhood is related to disease in adult life.Lancet. 1985 Jan 5;1(8419):1-5.
The presence of measles specific antibodies is usually taken as evidence of typical measles in the past; in the present study it was regarded as evidence of infection with measles virus, but not necessarily of the common disease accompanied by a typical rash. The association between a negative history of measles in childhood and certain diseases later in life was investigated by a historical prospective method, based on school health records combined with self-reporting in adulthood, and tests for specific IgG measles antibody. There was evidence of association between a negative history of measles, exposure in early life (possibly injection of immune serum globulin after exposure), and development of immunoreactive diseases, sebaceous skin diseases, degenerative diseases of bone and cartilage, and certain tumours. It is suggested that the presence of measles virus specific antibodies at the time of acute infection interferes with development of specific cytolytic reactions, and enables intracellular measles virus to survive the acute infection. If this hypothesis is verified, use of immune serum globulin after measles exposure has to be of immune serum globulin after measles exposure has to be reconsidered.

Lancet Refuses to Reinstate 1998 Royal Free Paper Despite Its Reasons Being Overturned in CourtMay 12, 2014
The following has been published by Jake Crosby under the title: Lancet Keeps Wakefield et al. Retracted in Contempt of Court. CHS points out that in the strictly legal sense what Jake Crosby describes in ordinary terms appears contemptuous of the legal process but is not per se a Contempt of Court in the legal sense. However, that contempt for due process and formal fact-finding demonstrates how little any of this has to do with medical science and how much it has to do with medical politics and the protection from criticism of vaccines which have been proven dangerous and the people who wrongfully allowed their use in the United Kingdom.

[Comment/Rapid Response] Which MMR?May 2014
in reply to MMR vaccine is not linked with autism, says Danish study
The debate about MMR-autism rages on and the Danish study is but another weak link in the chain promoted by those who, it appears, would vaccinate and be damned. Neville Goodman quotes a site that I suspect he opines will bring disrepute on anti-vaccine authors – perhaps he and Tony Floyd could look at the “critical analysis “ of the Danish Study by Ulf Branell (1) and comment. They might throw light on the validity of Branell’s statistical appraisal of the Danish study.
The Danish study does nothing to alter my view that MMR is probably a cause of autism, but the authors have perhaps unwittingly identified an important avenue of investigation (assuming their values are sound) that may lead us to the proof that MMR causes autism. ...

Swine flu jab link to killer nerve disease: Leaked letter reveals concern of neurologists over 25 deaths in America15 August 2009
A warning that the new swine flu jab is linked to a deadly nerve disease has been sent by the Government to senior neurologists in a confidential letter.
The letter from the Health Protection Agency, the official body that oversees public health, has been leaked to The Mail on Sunday, leading to demands to know why the information has not been given to the public before the vaccination of millions of people, including children, begins.
It tells the neurologists that they must be alert for an increase in a brain disorder called Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS), which could be triggered by the vaccine.
GBS attacks the lining of the nerves, causing paralysis and inability to breathe, and can be fatal.
The letter, sent to about 600 neurologists on July 29, is the first sign that there is concern at the highest levels that the vaccine itself could cause serious complications.
It refers to the use of a similar swine flu vaccine in the United States in 1976 when:

How Independent Are Vaccine Defenders?By Sharyl Attkisson CBS July 25, 2008
For years some parents and scientists have raised concerns about vaccine safety, including a possible link to autism and ADD. Many independent experts have sided with government officials and other scientists who say there's no possible connection. But how "independent" are they? CBS News investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson shares here's what she found.
They're some of the most trusted voices in the defense of vaccine safety: the American Academy of Pediatrics, Every Child By Two, and pediatrician Dr. Paul Offit.
But CBS News has found these three have something more in common - strong financial ties to the industry whose products they promote and defend.

Finally, a Judge Calls Shaken Baby Diagnosis an “Article of Faith”May 1 2014
And frees Jennifer Del Prete, who was sentenced for murder 10 years ago.
Almost a decade into a 20-year prison sentence for murdering a baby in her care, 43-year-old Jennifer Del Prete was ordered freed on bond late last week. The ruling is one of a growing number that reflect skepticism on the part of judges, juries, and even prosecutors about criminal convictions based on the medical diagnosis of shaken baby syndrome. The case is also a critical turning point. The certainty that once surrounded shaken baby syndrome, or SBS, has been dissolving for years. The justice system is beginning to acknowledge this shift but should go further to re-examine and perhaps overturn more past convictions.

Nearly Half of Americans Still Suspect Vaccine-Autism LinkJan. 20, 2011
THURSDAY, Jan. 20, 2011 (HealthDay News) -- Just a slim majority of Americans -- 52 percent -- think vaccines don't cause autism, a new Harris Interactive/HealthDay poll found.
Conversely, 18 percent are convinced that vaccines, like the measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine, can cause the disorder, and another 30 percent aren't sure.
The poll was conducted last week, following news reports that said the lead researcher of a controversial 1998 study linking autism to the MMR vaccine had used fraudulent research to come to his conclusion.
The poll also found that parents who have lingering doubts about the vaccine were less likely to say that their children were fully vaccinated (86 percent), compared to 98 percent of parents who believe in the safety of vaccines.

Novartis bids farewell to vaccines with $7.1B sale to GSKApril 22, 2014
After years of struggles and months of speculation, Novartis ($NVS) is finally kissing its vaccines unit goodbye. As part of a company-wide revamp, the Swiss drugmaker will send the division to the U.K., where GlaxoSmithKline ($GSK) will be waiting with open arms to take on a vaccines business that will give it an edge in meningitis and bolster its pipeline.
Novartis will ship its vaccines unit to GSK--excluding its flu business, with Glaxo already sporting its own--for $7.1 billion, comprising a $5.25 billion upfront payment and up to $1.8 billion in milestones. At the center of the deal is Bexsero, Novartis' jab for the deadly meningitis B, which currently boasts EU approval and orphan drug designation in the U.S.

Attached to an otherwise heroic narrative of the triumph of technology over cancer, this disclosure struck a discordant note. Conflict of interest? Inventors? Vaccine technology? Licenses? Pharmaceutical companies? Commercial vaccines? This isn’t scientific language, but rather the language of money and commerce. What was this unusual concession doing there in the fine print?

Merck’s Former Doctor Predicts that Gardasil will Become the Greatest Medical Scandal of All TimeApril 24, 2014
Dr. Dalbergue (pictured above), a former pharmaceutical industry physician with Gardasil manufacturer Merck, was interviewed in the April 2014 issue of the French magazine Principes de Santé (Health Principles). You can read it here (in French): http://ddata.over-blog.com/xxxyyy/3/27/09/71/2012-2013/Juin-2013/Dr-Dalbergue–Gardasil–plus-grand-scandale-de-tous-les-tem.pdf
The full extent of the Gardasil scandal needs to be assessed: everyone knew when this vaccine was released on the American market that it would prove to be worthless! Diane Harper, a major opinion leader in the United States, was one of the first to blow the whistle, pointing out the fraud and scam of it all.
Gardasil is useless and costs a fortune! In addition, decision-makers at all levels are aware of it!
Cases of Guillain-Barré syndrome, paralysis of the lower limbs, vaccine-induced MS and vaccine-induced encephalitis can be found, whatever the vaccine.
I predict that Gardasil will become the greatest medical scandal of all times because at some point in time, the evidence will add up to prove that this vaccine, technical and scientific feat that it may be, has absolutely no effect on cervical cancer and that all the very many adverse effects which destroy lives and even kill, serve no other purpose than to generate profit for the manufacturers.
There is far too much financial interest for these medicines to be withdrawn.

I am sick of it – this vaccination debate. My convictions not to vaccinate have been firm for six years now and I was comfortable living a low-profile life and letting other more notable activists carry the torch; and then I started seeing misleading t.v. interviews, news stories, and backlash against parents and unvaccinated children. I saw reputable medical professionals get crucified and reputations destroyed for questioning the mainstream norm. I saw laws passed in other states removing freedoms that rightfully belong to parents and individuals as a whole. I saw fear, blame, finger-pointing, lies, and flat out hate being propagated and encouraged by people, physicians, and popular media avenues towards parents who don’t vaccinate, and their children.
This isn’t a vaccination debate, it’s a hate debate, so let’s call it what it is. And when it got personal, I got involved. Most importantly, I felt the need to clear a few things up:

My take on Autism Awareness Dayby David Foster
I coached Special Olympics for over 20 years, and I have been a vaccine safety advocate for about 20 years, so I may have a different take on Autism Awareness Day than most.
Through Special Olympics I was exposed to many children with autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders, although those involved with an organized activity like SO would necessarily be relatively high functioning. My point is that there are many many autistic individuals, who are very low functioning, that you will never see, some cannot take care of themselves in any way, some wander constantly and many cases of wandering end up in their death. Autism impacts families in profound and sometimes very damaging and dangerous ways.
So please, media and pundits, stop referring to autism as a "gift".
I fully support the intent of Autism Awareness Day to foster both awareness of and tolerance for those with autism. We need to work on both social programs as well as treatment regimens to deal with the exponentially growing number of autistic people in our midst.
But what we ALSO need to do is stop creating new autistic children.

I am the mother of a boy with autism who developed normally – exceeding his milestones - until he received his Measles/Mumps/Rubella (MMR) and other vaccinations at 15 months. He reacted immediately and showed clear evidence of regression the day after his 15-month shots. By 18 months, he had lost all of his skills. By 19 months, all he did was cry, bang his head and say “go” – his only remaining word. I was told to consider an institution for him, and he wasn’t even two.

'Bioethicist': Parents Should Be Held Liabel For The Deaths 'Caused' by Unvaccinated ChildrenJune 10th 2013
Bioethicist Art Caplan, Ph.D. of New York University has argued that parents of unvaccinated children should be held liable for illness or death allegedly caused by their unvaccinated children. This article rebuts Caplan's position, and explains why liability should fall, if with anyone on this issue, on him, for the deliberate or negligent use of his academic status and authority, supported by false information, to promote a flawed vaccine policy resulting in avoidable vaccine injury and death.

Multiple Infant Vaccines Linked To Dramatically Increased MortalityDecember 19th 2013
A new study published in the journal Vaccine has brought to light an extremely disturbing though still virtually unreported dark side to immunization campaigns within low-income countries, namely, the observation that infant mortality sometimes increases when the number of co-administered vaccines increases; a finding diametrically opposed to the widely held belief that vaccination is always a life-saving intervention, and that the more vaccines administered to infants the better.

Gates Foundation/CFR Propaganda Against 'Anti-Vaccine' Movement BackfiresJanuary 27th 2014
The war against so-called 'vaccine preventable' diseases has a new frontier: the internet, and most recently The Council of Foreign Relations (CFR) has entered the fray with the publication of an interactive map that it claims "visually plots global outbreaks of measles, mumps, whooping cough, polio, rubella, and other diseases that are easily preventable by inexpensive and effective vaccines." This widely referenced map generated news headlines such as:

Tetanus Vaccines Sterilizing Women In Kenya? Catholic Church There Raises SuspicionsMarch 27th 2014
In a move that is garnering international attention, the head of the Catholic Church in Kenya has raised suspicions about the World Health Organization and UNICEF's tetanus vaccine campaign in their country, which is exclusively targeting over two million Kenyan women of children bearing age (14-49), to the exclusion of males and those younger who may be at higher risk from lethal harm from the tetanus infection.[i]

'Never has there been a safe vaccine,' Suzanne Humphries, MD, says in interviewMarch 26, 2014
(NaturalNews) Most Americans will not make a single medical-related decision in their entire lives without consulting an MD first. Western quack medicine has them completely fooled, and they may never wake up and realize it. People equate the fact that MD's went to medical school for 8 to 12 years with some kind of automatic assumption that they know what is good for your health and your immune system in general. Oops.

One in six children have a developmental disability5/22/2011
The number of children with developmental disabilities has increased by 17% in 12 years, driven largely by big jumps in diagnoses for autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, research shows.
More than 15% of school-age kids — about 10 million children — had a developmental disability in 2006-08, according to a study released Monday in the journal Pediatrics. That's up from 12.8% in 1997-99.
The study suggests that three or four children in a typical elementary school classroom have development disabilities. Some of the increase may be the result of the rise in premature birth, which leaves some babies with lasting impairments, says study author Sheree Boulet of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. One in eight babies today are born prematurely, according to the March of Dimes.

HPV Vaccine Maker’s Study Proves Natural HPV Infection Beneficial, Not DeadlyMarch 23rd 2014
If, in fact, the HPV vaccines do not work as widely advertised, and natural HPV infectious exposures actually protect against the progression of HPV linked cervical changes to cancer, then taken together, both these findings challenge the most fundamental assumptions within vaccine science (aka vaccinology), and render highly dubious the oft repeated rhetoric that natural HPV infection is juggernaut –like deadly force the best defense against which are universal immunization campaigns.

Vaccine-Induced Tissue Scurvy Globally Misdiagnosed as Child AbuseMarch 19 2014
The father of the child in our published photo was jailed for life for child abuse. Many of you looking at the terrible injuries on this small child will immediately assume, as did the doctors who examined him, that he was viciously attacked and it was right to jail his father.
However, what if I told you that it was later proven that this child had in fact been suffering from Kawasaki disease, otherwise known as tissue scurvy, and that his father was innocent?

Biased reporting: a vaccination case study28 January 2014,
On Tuesday 28 January 2014, The Australian newspaper published a news story by journalist Rick Morton titled "University paid for anti-vaccine student to attend conference." It provides an illuminating example of how to construct an article that is misleading in several different ways.
Here, I offer a critique of Morton's story, pointing out a number of its shortcomings and biases. I first give some context about journalistic codes and practices, and my own involvement. After providing some background about the vaccination debate, I go through Morton's text, presenting information to highlight how it is misleading. In the conclusion, I summarise the types of bias involved and comment on how readily they can be detected.

GBS is Not Rare After Vaccinations: Here’s How Vaccine Pushers Conceal the TruthMarch 15 2014
We know that statistics may be twisted into the realm of absurdity, but most of us seem to accept them when considering the safety of medicines.
Here’s a typical example: We ask a doctor who recommends a vaccine about the risk of contracting Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), a serious autoimmune condition which may evolve into paralysis. The doctor may assure us that the risk is “probably only one additional case in each million persons vaccinated.”
Why should we accept this statistic without question?

HHS Official Jumps Ship in Scathing Letter of Resignation: ‘Worst Job I’ve Ever Had’Mar. 14, 2014
A Department of Health and Human Services official resigned from his post in a scathing letter that ripped the agency for profound dysfunction.
David Wright headed the Office of Research Integrity for two years and wrote in his letter dated Feb. 25 that his time with the agency left him “offended as an American taxpayer.”
The job was apparently not only unsatisfying, it was downright offensive, Wright said in the letter, which was first obtained by ScienceInsider.
It was “the very worst job I have ever had,” he said.
The Office of Research Integrity is responsible for reviewing possible misconduct in agency research projects.

42% of Drug Reactions Are Vaccine Related, Groundbreaking Chinese Study FindsMarch 8th 2014
A groundbreaking new drug safety study published in the open access journal PLoS and titled, "Adverse Drug Reactions of Spontaneous Reports in Shanghai Pediatric Population," has revealed for the first that that 42.5% of all reported adverse drug reactions occurring in 2009 in a Chinese pediatric population (Shanghai, pop of 17 mil) were caused by vaccines, with reactions as severe as anaphylaxis and death.
The report carries unique gravitas insofar as the data was gathered through spontaneous reports of physicians (52.03%), pharmacists (24.27%) and other health care practitioners (15.46%), with only 2.52% coming from 'consumers.' Presumably, the clinical training of those reporting gives the study additional credibility.
