Oppose HB 644 to Require 6th Graders to get Meningococcal (MCV4) Vaccine


Dear Virginia NVIC Advocacy Team Members,

Delegate Patrick Hope (D-47th district) has introduced HB644.  This bill will require all school children to get one dose of meningococcal (MCV4) vaccine before sixth grade. If the bill passes, it would go into effect July 1, 2019.

WE NEED TO ACTIVATE!! The members of the Health Welfare and Institutions Committee (HWI) need to hear from us. They are our FIRST TARGET! Your personal delegate also needs to be contacted.  CALL and E-Mail the full committee members and your own Delegate in Richmond.

Last year, the very same bill was introduced and we were able to defeat it in the sub-committee by one vote, which stopped it. Obviously, the VA Department of Health is determined to mandate this vaccine.  It is not clear whether this bill will go to a sub-committee or if it will be heard by the full HWI Committee.

Your calls and letters last year made a difference and kept this vaccine off our schedule in Virginia. Our lawmakers meet for 60 days and then the session is over so things move very quickly in Virginia.

I hope you will take a few minutes RIGHT NOW to address this. The clock is ticking!

All the best,

Kathi Williams,, National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) Virginia State Director of Advocacy

Dear Delegate ________________,

Please oppose HB644, a mandate for a dose of meningococcal vaccine (MCV4) for all children entering sixth grade because:

(1) in the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control, NONE of the 10 cases of invasive disease in Virginia was caused by one of the four meningococcal strains (A, C, W and Y) included in the MCV4 vaccine;

(2) invasive meningococcal disease incidence among children aged 10 to 19 (6th grade and above) is almost non-existent in Virginia (three cases per year);

(3) the vaccine is already available to all who want it and other states have voluntary MCV4 programs with vaccine coverage rates above the national average;  

(4) the mandate will be expensive for parents of sixth grade students and the commonwealth to implement.

Please review the attached detailed and referenced information to support this position.

The annual incidence of invasive meningococcal disease in Virginia is low and has been declining. In 2015 and 2016, there were 10 reported cases (1 in a million) and a total of 3 cases out of the 10 reported in the 10-19 year age group.

The potential for a dose of MCV4 given to all sixth graders to further reduce negligible incidence of invasive meningococcal disease in the commonwealth is extremely low. The latest data from Centers for Disease Control, show that in 2015, NONE of the 10 cases of invasive disease in Virginia was caused by one of the four meningococcal serotypes (strains) (A, C, W and Y) included in the MCV4 vaccine.  This means that, in 2015, a new MCV4 vaccine mandate wouldn't have prevented any cases of invasive meningococcal disease. 

MCV4 is one of the more expensive pediatric vaccines on the U.S. market. It costs an average $117 per shot in a private pediatrician's office, not including administration fees, and an average $89 per shot through the federally subsidized Vaccines for Children program.  The charge for the vaccine is much higher in pharmacies and urgent care clinics and costs up to $159 per shot. 

A vaccination mandate is not necessary. In the past six years, voluntary use of MCV4 among Virginia teens has increased by 31.2 percent, from 54.5 percent in 2010 to 71.5 percent in 2016. Additionally, it is important to note that voluntary MCV4 use in three states without middle school vaccination mandates  - Maine, New Hampshire, and Wisconsin -- resulted in 2016 coverage rates that range between 83.5 and 88.0 percent, and exceed the national average of 82.2 percent.

Attached is some additional information that might be helpful -- in particular, "The Dangers of Mandating Vaccines" in the attached document "blaylock_srvaccineharm_0.pdf" []

Individuals should be allowed to decide for themselves whether to get or to refuse vaccinations. We want to keep our constitutional and religious rights concerning vaccines that is protected under the 1st Amendment and the Constitution of Virginia.  With the potential for adverse reaction to vaccines in some individuals, no person should be mandated to get a vaccine without their consent.

Are Ineffective New Meningitis B Vaccines Causing Harm to Children?

by Christina England

Health Impact News

With U.S. doctors questioning the safety and effectiveness of the new meningitis B vaccines in a shocking San Diego Union Tribune [1] news report, we need to ask ourselves whether or not our children are more at risk from the vaccine, than they are from the disease itself.

This is a real possibility because according to the Tribune, risk of catching the disease is rare and patients from families with a history of immune system disease could be at risk from severe adverse reactions.

Dr. Mark Sawyer, an infectious disease specialist at Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego, told reporters:

Newer vaccines on the market lack comprehensive evidence on safety and effectiveness, compared with vaccines that have been administered to tens of millions of people over decades.

Furthermore, he continued by informing reporters that he did not vaccinate his own daughter because he did not feel that she was at an increased risk and stated:

Parents should realize that there are many more pressing threats on the vaccination front.

Campaigners Call for Every Child to be Vaccinated

In a recent article, the Daily Mail [2] announced that last September, Britain became the first country in the world to launch a vaccination program for meningitis B, a disease which officials say kills around 120 people each year and leaves another 400 with lifelong disabilities.

The free vaccine that is being offered to parents in Britain as part of children's routine vaccination schedule is currently only available for children under the age of one. However, campaigners want the vaccine to become available to all children and they have petitioned the government.

Daily Mail stated:

Meningitis B is an inflammation of the lining of the brain and spinal cord, which can lead to multiple organ failure and death.

It affects about 1,870 people in the country each year, half of them under-fives, striking so quickly it is often too late to treat by the time it is spotted.

Babies and young children are especially susceptible because their immune systems are not fully formed.

The petition, one of the biggest seen on the Parliament website, calls for all children up to the age of 11 to be vaccinated.

However, parents are not being told the full facts about these vaccinations.

Two Vaccines Approved for Use

Currently there are two meningitis B vaccines on the market: BEXSERO, manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline/Novartis, and TRUMENBA, manufactured by Pfizer.

According to Meningitis Now [3], Bexsero was first licensed in Europe in 2013, and although it has not been used routinely anywhere else in the world until recently, 500,000 doses of the vaccine have been given in over 35 countries worldwide.

The second vaccine, Trumenba®, was approved in the United States for use in 10 to 25 year-olds by the Food and Drug Administration [4] (FDA) in November 2014 and has been used in the U.S. ever since.

On the 30th of June 2015, the Confederation of Meningitis Organisations [5] stated:

In February of this year the CDC voted to recommend the vaccines for adolescents aged 10 years and over but only for high-risk individuals. The latest recommendation is not restricted to those considered at high risk and specifies that the preferred age of vaccination is 16-18 years, though vaccines can be administered up to 23 years of age. The age range specified targets the group who have the highest incidence of the disease.

As of yet, the vaccine has not been offered as part of the funded schedule; therefore, it is up to the individual parent whether or not they have their child vaccinated.

In January 2015, the FDA [6] also approved Bexsero for use in the U.S.:

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today approved Bexsero, a vaccine to prevent invasive meningococcal disease caused by Neisseria meningitidis serogroup B in individuals 10 through 25 years of age.

Bexsero is the second vaccine approved by the FDA in the past three months to prevent this disease. The agency approved the first meningococcal serogroup B vaccine in October 2014.

On the subject of adverse reactions, the FDA stated that:

The safety of Bexsero was assessed in approximately 5,000 participants who received the vaccine in studies conducted in the U.S. and abroad. The most commonly reported side effects by those who received Bexsero were pain and swelling at the injection site, headache, diarrhea, muscle pain, joint pain, fatigue, and chills. In addition, safety was monitored in more than 15,000 individuals who received Bexsero prior to approval in response to two university outbreaks of serogroup B meningococcal disease in the U.S.

Whilst these adverse reactions are mild, more serious adverse reactions have been listed in the vaccine insert [7].

Facts Hidden from Plain Sight: Infant Vaccine Only Approved for Older Children

In the UK, Bexsero is the main vaccination being recommended for babies between the ages of two and six months, a vaccine that, according to the manufacturers vaccine insert [7], has only been approved for individuals from the ages of 10 through to 25.

Fig 1 [8]

What is even more alarming is the fact that the manufacturer has stated that the safety and effectiveness of this vaccine have not been established in children under 10 years of age.

Fig 2 [9]

If this is correct, then parents need ask themselves why the UK government has decided to vaccinate babies as young as two months of age, with a vaccine that is potentially unsafe and ineffective.

Another Alarming Fact: High Amounts of Aluminum 

Another worrying fact is that the Bexsero vaccination contains 1.5 mg of aluminium, which is a massive 1475 mcg more than the FDA's [10] 'safe? recommended amount.

            3 [11]

Dr. Sears is a medical professional who has been exceptionally worried about the effects of aluminum on children's health. In an article warning mothers about the dangers of vaccinations containing the adjuvant, titled Is Aluminum The New Thimerosal?, [12] he explained that aluminum has been added to vaccinations to help them work more efficiently. He stated that, although this would not normally be a problem because aluminum is a naturally occurring element found everywhere in our environment, including our food, water, air and soil, he had become worried about the effects that aluminum was having on children's health. He also wondered if anyone had ever actually tested the safe level of injected aluminium.

To find out more, he began to research the subject more closely.

During his research, he came across a number of extremely worrying documents. However, few were as worrying as the one written by the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (ASPEN).

Describing the document in depth, Sears wrote:

The source of the daily limit of 4 to 5 mcg of aluminum per kilogram of body weight quoted by the ASPEN statement seems to be a study that compared the neurologic development of about 100 premature babies who were fed a standard IV solution that contained aluminum, with the development of 100 premature babies who were fed the same solution with almost all aluminum filtered out. The study was prompted by a number of established facts: that injected aluminum can build up to toxic levels in the bloodstream, bones, and brain; that preemies have decreased kidney function and thus a higher risk of toxicity; that an autopsy performed on one preemie whose sudden death was otherwise unexplained revealed high aluminum concentrations in the brain; and that aluminum toxicity can cause progressive dementia.

He continued by giving some extremely alarming facts, many of which few parents are aware of:

However, none of these documents or studies mentions vaccines; they look only at IV solutions and injectable medications. Nor does the FDA require labels on vaccines warning about the dangers of aluminum toxicity, although such labels are required for all other injectable medications. All of these studies and label warnings seem to apply mainly to premature babies and kidney patients. What about larger, full-term babies with healthy kidneys?

He explained:

However, these documents don't tell us what the maximum safe dose would be for a healthy baby or child, and I can't find such information anywhere. This is probably why the ASPEN group suggests, and the FDA requires, that all injectable solutions be limited to 25 mcg; we at least know that that level is safe.

If this is true, then the amounts of aluminium added to the Bexsero vaccination far exceed the recommend safety levels.

Bexsero May be Ineffective -- Contains E. coli

Furthermore, the vaccine insert [7] for Bexsero stated that:

BEXSERO may not protect all vaccine recipients. BEXSERO may not provide protection against all meningococcal serogroup B strains.

In other words, desperate and vulnerable parents are pinning their hopes on a vaccine that may or may not work, is overloaded with aluminum and may give their child adverse reactions.

Another interesting fact is that according to the CDC [13] one of the ingredients that this vaccine contains is E.coli and this was not listed by the manufacturer.

Fig 4 [14]

We need to ask ourselves why such a dangerous ingredient as E.coli would be added to a childhood vaccine and why it was not mentioned by the manufacturer. This is especially suspicious when you consider that, according to the FDA [6], diarrhea is one of the side effects of this vaccine.

Moving on the Second Meningitis B Vaccine

The second meningitis B vaccine that is currently on the market is Trumenba®. Like Bexsero, Trumenba® has only been approved by the manufacturer for use in individuals aged 10 to 25.

On the vaccine insert [15], the manufacturer, Pfizer, stated that in trials, the most common adverse reactions were the following:

  • Pain at the injection site
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Muscle pain
  • Chills

However, although these adverse reactions are fairly mild, the frequency of their occurrence was extremely high.

Fig 5 [16]

Despite this information, however, Trumenba was the first meningitis B vaccine to be approved by the FDA. Even more worrying, in a clinical study, over 90 percent of children under the age of 12 months who were vaccinated with this vaccine at a reduced dosage suffered a post-vaccination fever.

Fig 6 [17]

So far, this vaccine has only been used on individuals aged 10 -- 25 in the U.S. However, this recommendation may change in the future and parents need to be vigilant.

Although this vaccine 'only' contains 0.25 mg of aluminium, this amount is still above the FDA's recommended safety level and, once again according to the CDC, this vaccine contains E.coli as its surprise ingredient.

The Dangers of Aluminum Unleashed

Aluminum [18] has been named as the second most used metal in the world after steel, largely because it is so versatile. It can be found in our food, drinking water, atmosphere, medication, vaccinations and cosmetics.

According to U.S. Department of Energy, Energy and Efficiency and Renewable Energy [19], the United States? aluminum industry is the world's largest, processing 9.6 million metric tons of metal and producing about $40 billion in products and exports in 2003.

However, despite its versatility and its many uses, aluminum has become one of most negatively talked about products used today. In recent months, scientists have linked its use to cancer [20], autism [21] and Alzheimer's disease [22]. So, what is being done to protect the public from its many dangers?

Aluminum is Toxic and Potentially Harmful to Humans

Professor Christopher Exley, often referred to as Mr. Aluminum, has been studying the effects of aluminum on the human body for thirty years and has become increasingly worried. In a recent video presentation [23], he explained that, despite the fact that aluminum has been regularly used as an adjuvant in vaccination [24] for many years, little is known about its effect on the human body. He made it clear that we should accept that aluminum is toxic and that toxicity may take many different forms. He stated that wherever it ends up in the body, it has the potential to do harm.

This is certainly something to consider, especially when none of us can be certain where an aluminum adjuvant will accumulate once it has been vaccinated into our body [25].

Professor Exley continued by stating that:

If aluminum is in the brain, it can produce neurodegeneration and problems associated with the brain; if it is in the bone, it can produce bone disease. Wherever it ends up in the body, it has the potential to cause toxicity, whether it is in humans, fish or any other living organism.

Taking this a little bit further, Professor Exley explained that it is possible for two individuals to have very similar amounts of aluminum in their body and for only one of them to suffer an adverse effect, which he says could be due to individual physiology, medical history and genetics.

Speaking about the different ways in which the body can absorb aluminum, Professor Exley talked about the gut, the lungs, the nose and the skin before moving on to the subject of vaccination and adjuvants. He stated that we must understand that aluminum exposure in this form is very different from any other form of exposure.

Discussing his work, he said:

Currently, we are researching the simple things. For example, when you inject an adjuvant, what is its fate? What happens to it? What happens to it, relative to the antigen that it was injected with?

We are about to be able to publish what we believe is for the first time unequivocal evidence that, yes, immune cells do come to the site of the injection, they do take up aluminum particles and they will transport them elsewhere.

Professor Exley continued:

In other words, once you have been vaccinated with a vaccine containing an aluminum adjuvant at an injection site, there is the potential for it to go anywhere in the body and if it is such an effective adjuvant at an injection site, then could it not be an equally effective adjuvant elsewhere? In other words, if particulate aluminum gets carried into the brain or into another organ, then it could have the potential to act as an adjuvant there, couldn't it? Could it not induce the type of inflammatory response that you see at the site of an injection in any other type of tissue where that adjuvant material ends up, simply because it's been carried there?

Professor Exley's research and a wide range of articles, studies and peer-reviewed papers linking vaccinations containing aluminium to neurological conditions can be found on the Children's Medical Safety Research Institute [26] website.

To learn more about this topic, see also Dr. Humphries? presentation:

Aluminum is Toxic to All Life Forms: So Why is it Used in Vaccines?  [27]


These vaccinations are potentially ineffective, unsafe and carry a large risk of adverse reaction. Health Impact News believes that parents should be informed and know all the risks involved before making a decision as whether or not they should vaccinate their children with the new meningitis B vaccines.

Comment on this article at [28]

HB 644 is a bill that would add the Meningococcal (MCV4) Vaccine to the list of MANDATED VACCINES IN Virginia, and would be another vaccine for which Virginia will decide for or against our constitutional right to either allow or refuse vaccines for your children or yourselves to be forcibly injected into our bodies against our will. We are all individuals and therefore react differently to different substances, drugs, injections, etc. When a person accidentally eats or drinks a food or substance that is harmful for him, oftentimes that person will become nauseous and vomit out the offending substance, but if that substance is injected directly into the bloodstream, the person's body cannot purge it by vomiting. This can cause fatal consequences or long term and even lifetime autoimmune reactions where the body overreacts from the vaccine adjuvants and attacks its own healthy tissues.

By the way, Pasteur recanted on his deathbed and told his wife and son that he was wrong about vaccinations, and Beauchamp was right: it was the terrain, not the germ. We are exposed to all kinds of germs every day (TB, pneumonia, etc.), and it's almost always the same ones who get sick because they don't take care of themselves, but people with healthy "terrains" (healthy lifestyles and diets -- i.e., people who take care of themselves) usually don't get sick. That's what Pasteur and Beauchamp meant by, "it is the terrain; not the germ".

Individuals should be allowed to decide for themselves whether to get or to refuse vaccinations. We want to keep our constitutional rights concerning vaccines that is protected under the 1st Amendment and the Constitution of Virginia.  With the potential for adverse reaction to vaccines in some individuals, no person should be mandated to get a vaccine without their consent, especially vaccines for which the risk of serious side effects outweigh any possible benefits.

Defending the Religious Exemption to Vaccination
Posted: 6/28/2016 2:44:57 PM

Every summer, Americans celebrate the 4th of July to mark the day in 1776 when the American colonies agreed they would no longer be ruled by an aristocracy. The Declaration of Independence begins with, 'We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights.' That Declaration was a rejection of oppression by a ruling aristocracy and the pledge that this country would uphold the unalienable natural right to life and liberty that belongs to every person. 

240 years later, we find ourselves again fighting for freedom from oppression because we have allowed the rise of a new ruling aristocracy, an elitist class of privileged citizens who want the legal right to judge, shame, segregate, discriminate against and punish fellow citizens who do not share their beliefs.  Nowhere is this truth more self evident than in the oppressive implementation of one-size-fits-all mandatory vaccination laws that fail to respect biodiversity or human rights and crush citizen opposition, in violation of the informed consent ethic and freedom of thought, speech, conscience and religious belief.

When a ruling aristocracy uses the heel of the boot of the State to create fear and oppress average citizens for their beliefs, there is no other word for it but tyranny. The appropriation of unaccountable authority by medical trade and the militarization of public health in the 21st century should be of concern to every person who values life and liberty. 26 27 28 29

U.S. Supreme Court: Vaccines are 'Unavoidably Unsafe'

In 2011, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed with what Congress said in 1986, and that is:  government licensed vaccines are 'unavoidably unsafe' and pharmaceutical corporations should not be liable for vaccine injuries and deaths. 30 31 Today, when your child dies or is permanently brain injured after vaccination or the vaccine fails to protect your child, you cannot hold the vaccine manufacturer or the doctor who gave the vaccine accountable in court in front of a jury of your peers.

With this free pass, in 2011 and 2012 the multi-billion dollar vaccine machine powered by medical trade, industry and government rolled into the legislatures of Washington, Vermont and other states with the goal of eliminating religious and conscience vaccine exemptions that have been in place in the U.S. for more than half a century. 32  NVIC has worked with families and other grassroots organizations to protect vaccine exemptions in 15 states but, in 2015, Vermont lost the conscience exemption and California lost the personal belief exemption protecting both exercise of conscience and religious beliefs. 33

Vaccine Machine Invades Virginia

This year, the vaccine machine invaded Virginia.  A proposed law was introduced in the House of Delegates in January 2016 to strip away not just the religious vaccine exemption, but also the medical exemption for all children, whether they are being homeschooled or are enrolled in public or private schools. 34 An individual physician would no longer exercise professional judgment when granting a child a medical exemption but would become a government agent enforcing the narrow one-size-fits all federal vaccine contraindication guidelines 35 36 approved by the Centers for Disease Control, which means that 99.99 percent of children would not qualify for the medical vaccine exemption in Virginia. 37

virginia-house-of-delegates.jpgVirginia families pushed back quickly and hard against the draconian bill that would make Virginia the state with the most oppressive forced vaccination law in the country. 38  Although the bill was temporarily withdrawn this year by the attorney lobbyist and obstetrician sponsoring it, 39 similar legislation is expected to be reintroduced in 2017 after a report is released by the Joint Commission on Healthcare this fall.

Virginia has a very tiny 1.1 percent vaccine exemption rate for kindergarten children, which is lower than the national vaccine exemption rate of 1.7 percent. In fact, Virginia ranks in the top 10 states with the lowest vaccine exemption rates. According to the CDC, only 305 kindergarten children in Virginia have a medical vaccine exemption and 891 children have a religious vaccine exemption. 40

So why has the vaccine machine attacked a state with one of the lowest vaccine exemption rates in the country to persecute 1200 kindergarten children and their parents?

Freedom of Conscience, Religion First Became Law in Virginia

For the answer, you have to look no further than the history of the Commonwealth of Virginia and the principles upon which the United States of America was founded. Virginia is the hallowed ground where freedom of thought, conscience and religion was first defined as a natural right and was codified into American law. Virginia is the place where George Mason and Thomas Jefferson wrote the Virginia Bill of Rights and the Virginia Act for Religious Freedom and where, over the years, the General Assembly has enacted the strongest religious freedom and parental rights legislation in the country.

The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution approved by Congress in 1789 says, 'Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.'

That First Amendment was based on the Virginia Bill of Rights adopted by the Virginia General Assembly before Congress approved the U.S. Constitution Bill of Rights.

Section 16 of the Virginia Constitution states that:

    'All men are equally entitled to the free exercise of religion, according to the dictates of conscience;' and
    'No man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religious worship, place, or ministry whatsoever,' and
    'The General Assembly shall not prescribe any religious test whatever' on citizens.

This means it is a violation of the Virginia Constitution to eliminate the legal right to exercise religious beliefs according to the dictates of conscience, or to force citizens to belong to an organized religion or a particular church in order to exercise conscience and religious beliefs.

Virginia's 1786 Act for Religious Freedom

There is another law in Virginia that protects freedom of religion. Virginia's Act for Religious Freedom was adopted by the Virginia Assembly in 1786, three years before the Bill of Rights in the U.S. Constitution was approved.

This historic Act is very clear about what religious freedom means, stating in the first sentence that, 'Almighty God hath created the mind free.'

Here Virginia law is saying that freedom of thought was given to mankind by God.

The Act goes on to say that, 'All attempts to influence it by temporal punishments, or burdens, or by civil incapacitations -- are a departure from the plan of the Holy Author of our religion...'

Here Virginia law is saying that a human being has a natural right to freedom of thought, conscience and religious belief and must not be coerced or punished for exercising it.

The Act accurately points out that legislators and rulers are 'fallible,' that they do not have the right to assume 'dominion over the faith of others, setting up their own opinions and modes of thinking as the only true and infallible, and as such endeavoring to impose them on others'.

Here Virginia law is emphasizing that human beings, including government officials, are not infallible and that religious faith is individual, a matter of conscience, and that legislators do not have the right to impose their ideology, opinions and beliefs on others.

Even more strongly, the Act states that, 'our civil rights have no dependence on our religious opinions any more than our opinions in physics or geometry.'

Here Virginia law is pointing out that individual opinions about math and science differ, just as opinions about religion differ, and an individual's exercise of religious belief must not limit the individual's exercise of civil rights.

Finally, in a ringing defense for freedom of thought and religious liberty, the Virginia Religious Freedom Act declares without qualification that, 'No man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religious worship, place or ministry whatsoever, nor shall be enforced, restrained, molested or burdened in his body or goods, nor shall otherwise suffer on account of his religious opinions or belief; but that all men shall be free to profess, and by argument to maintain, their opinions in matters of religion, and that the same shall in no wise diminish, enlarge or affect their civil capacities'..We are free to declare, and do declare, that the rights hereby asserted are of the natural rights of mankind, and that if any act shall be hereafter passed to repeal the present, or to narrow its operation, such act will be an infringement of natural right.'

When Virginia law talks about natural rights, it is referring to what today are often described as human rights. Among the human rights recognized globally is the right to freedom of conscience and religion. Conscience can be defined as the part of your mind or an inner sense that tells you what is right or wrong and guides you to a morally right action.
Universal Declaration of Human Rights

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted in 1948 after World War II states that, 'Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.'

universal-declaration-of-human-rights-(1).jpgWhen explaining religious freedom to his friends and colleagues, Thomas Jefferson said that freedom of religion belonged to, 'the Jew and the Gentile, the Christian and the Mahometan, the Hindoo and Infidel of every denomination.' 41 Jefferson believed in a Creator but he did not identify with an organized religion nor was a member of a church, and his reference to 'Infidel of every denomination' likely was an affirmation of freedom of thought, which also includes the freedom to be agnostic or an atheist and have no religious beliefs.

In other words, freedom of religion encompasses freedom of thought and conscience and applies to all personal beliefs about religion.

Additionally, the ethical principle of informed consent to medical risk taking has been defined as a human right since 1947. 42 43 44 Today, informed consent is globally recognized as central to the ethical practice of medicine. 45 Informed consent means you have the right to be fully informed about the benefits and risks of a medical intervention, such as use of a pharmaceutical product like vaccines, and be free to make a voluntary decision without being coerced or punished by anyone for the decision you make.

Your human right to exercise informed consent to medical risk taking without being coerced or punished for the decision you make is very similar to the language in the Virginia Religious Freedom Act that protects citizens from being punished by government officials for exercising the natural right to freedom of conscience and religious belief.

Virginia Reaffirms Religious Freedom Act in 2007

In 2007, the Virginia Assembly reaffirmed the Religious Freedom Act of 1786 with a major caveat and that is, 'No government entity shall substantially burden a person's free exercise of religion' unless it demonstrates that application of the burden to the person is (1) essential to further a compelling governmental interest and (2) the least restrictive means of furthering that compelling governmental interest.'

This caveat sets an appropriately high bar for substantially restricting a person's free exercise of religious belief. For example, if the state argues it has a compelling governmental interest to prevent an infectious disease epidemic, government officials must still demonstrate that mandatory vaccination laws are 'essential' to achieve that goal, and then, further demonstrate that those laws are being implemented in 'the least restrictive' way.

Vaccine Freedom of Choice: A Human Right

When we defend the natural right to exercise freedom of thought, conscience and religious belief, we are not called upon to talk about different scientific hypotheses explaining how and why vaccines can cause injury and death, or why the CDC is unaccountable and a whistleblower should be subpoenaed by Congress to testify about the risks of a particular vaccine. The arguments about vaccine science and who is right and who is wrong about it will be argued for the next century.

Our responsibility is to defend without compromise the human right to exercise freedom of thought, conscience and religious belief for ourselves and our minor children for whom we are legally responsible, without being discriminated against and punished with denial of education, health care, employment or other societal sanctions that violate our civil rights.

There are three general statements about vaccination in the U.S. that cannot be disputed, which are:

    Like prescription drugs, vaccines are pharmaceutical products that carry a risk of injury, death and failure. 46 47 48 49

    There are genetic, biological and environmental high risk factors that make some individuals more susceptible to vaccine reactions, but doctors cannot predict who will be harmed. 50

    The U.S. Congress and Supreme Court have declared government licensed and mandated vaccines to be 'unavoidably unsafe' and more than $3 billion dollars in federal vaccine injury compensation has been awarded to children and adults under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986. 51

These three basic facts about vaccination affect your human right to exercise freedom of thought, conscience and religious belief:

Because vaccines can injure or kill and doctors cannot predict who will be harmed, and the U.S. government has acknowledged that fact and indemnified pharmaceutical corporations and doctors, while awarding financial compensation to children and adults who have been injured or died from government licensed vaccines, 52 you have the human right to exercise informed consent, freedom of conscience and religious belief when making a decision about vaccination for yourself or your minor child.

Judeo-Christian Tradition Affirming Duty to Follow Conscience

The medical practice of vaccination is only 220 years old and came thousands of years after the founding of the world's major organized religions (Hinduism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism). There is no major religion with a written tenet opposing vaccination.

However, there is a strong Judeo-Christian tradition affirming the duty of those who believe in God to follow their conscience.  If you are a Christian, you can find passages in the Bible, which affirm your beliefs as a Christian to follow your conscience and the guidance given to you by God through prayer. Prayer for guidance is central to many Protestant denominations. 53

For example, there is Timothy 1:5 - 'The aim of our charge is love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith.'

There is Proverbs 3:5 - 'Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.'

There is Colossians 2:8: 'see to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.'

There are many more Bible verses that affirm the need for Christians to have faith in God and be guided by scripture and follow their conscience.

Also, the definition of moral conscience is discussed in detail in the catechism of the Catholic Church, which holds that, 'Conscience is a judgment of reason whereby the human person recognizes the moral quality of a concrete act that he is going to perform, is in the process of performing or has already completed. In all he says and does, man is obliged to follow faithfully what he knows to be just and right. It is by the judgment of his conscience that man perceives and recognizes the prescription of the divine law.'

In even stronger terms, the Catholic Church warns that, 'a human being must always obey the certain judgment of his conscience. If he were deliberately to act against it, he would condemn himself.'

If you are of Jewish faith, your foundation is the old testament of the Bible and the Torah, which emphasize that man is created in the image of God and that each individual human being has worth and a right to equal and loving treatment. Preservation of human life and reliance on God is central to the teachings of Judaism.

There is Psalm 146 -  'Halleluyah! Praise HASHEM, O my Soul! I will praise HASHEM while I live, I will make music to my God while I exist. Do not rely on nobles, nor on a human being for he holds no salvation. When his spirit departs he returns to his earth, on that day his plans all perish. Praiseworthy is one whose help is Jacob's God, whose hope is in HASHEM, his God. He is the Maker of heaven and earth, the sea and all that is in them, Who safeguards truth forever'

Whatever your sincere religious beliefs, you do not have to be a member of an organized religion or church to hold them and defend your human right to exercise freedom of conscience. In America, you should not have to live in fear that you will be judged and punished for exercising freedom of thought, conscience and religious belief.
Assault on Cultural Values and Beliefs in America

Mandatory vaccination laws that violate human rights are the tip of the spear of the political assault on cultural values and beliefs in America, including freedom of conscience and religious belief. 54 This assault began in the 20th century with the tragically flawed 1905 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Jacobsen v. Massachusetts 55 56 that used the pagan ethic of utilitarianism 57 58 59 to devalue the life of the individual and endorse state forced vaccination. That morally corrupt legal decision served as the basis for another morally corrupt Supreme Court ruling in Buck v. Bell in 1927, when Virginia doctors were given the green light to sterilize Carrie Buck in an endorsement of state eugenics laws based on the cruel utilitarian 'greater good' rationale. 60 61

The 1905 U.S. Supreme Court justices may have given state health officials the legal authority but they will never possess the moral authority to demand that individuals sacrifice their lives for what the State has defined as the 'greater good.' Laws that fail to protect freedom of thought, conscience, religious belief and informed consent are a violation of human rights and the false ethic of utilitarianism should never be used to implement public health policy in America.
Virginians Ready to Defend Human and Civil Rights

The ruling aristocracy operating the vaccine machine has chosen Virginia as the battlefield to wage a war on religious liberty because they know that if freedom of thought, conscience and religion can be gutted in Virginia, it can be gutted anywhere.

The citizens of Virginia who understand what is at stake stand ready to defend human and civil rights on the hallowed ground where freedom of conscience was born in America.

act-now.jpgBecause the right of the State to tell us what to do to our bodies and the bodies of our children ends where our right to protect our lives and our children's lives begins.

Because we believe that every life is important and we will not look the other way while those vulnerable to vaccine injury and death are being sacrificed in the name of the greater good.

Because when the State considers one of us to be expendable, then we are all considered expendable.

We are the daughters and sons of liberty. And we will defend freedom of thought and conscience and religion in this great country of ours because that is what it means to be an American.

It's your health. Your family. Your choice.

Each year, tens of millions of American children are vaccinated according to the vaccination schedule set forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC). The current CDC schedule recommends over 25 vaccines by the time a child reaches two years of age. (1) The majority of the parents of these children follow the advice of their physicians and the CDC, which state that vaccines are both safe and effective and that, in order to protect hundreds of millions of individuals against disease,we must follow their recommendations.

Our medical authorities assure us that they would never allow our children to be exposed to something unproven or known to be dangerous. They claim that vaccines, even when multiple injections are given on a single day, are safe and do 'not cause any chronic health problems.' (2) Further, they claim that the ingredients contained in vaccines are either harmless or found in such minuscule quantities that they pose no health risks. The medical establishment also states unequivocally that there is no connection between vaccination and the rising incidence of autism spectrum disorder.Anyone who questions the safety of vaccination is immediately labeled as irresponsible or a quack who subscribes to pseudoscience.

Given that vaccines are mandatory for most children in public schools, it makes sense that they should be scientifically proven to be safe. However, in a careful analysis of thousands of articles in the peer reviewed literature on toxicology and immunology,nowhere can we find evidence for these claims on vaccine safety are based upon a gold standard of clinical research: long term, double blind, placebo controlled studies. What is glaringly absent is research examining the cumulative toxicological impact of the CDC vaccine schedule over a long period of time. Never has a concise epidemiological study been published that compares the long term health outcomes of a group of infants and children given the recommended CDC immunization schedule and a cohort of unvaccinated children. Since such research has never been carried out, our medical officials are relying on inconclusive research that is not science based in order to create public health policy. American parents, meanwhile, are conditioned by our medical officials to bring their children in for regular vaccinations, confusing pure propaganda with scientific proof.

*** All humans possess a unique biochemistry that makes them more or less susceptible to various types of toxins. Whereas one child may be left with a compromised immune system after exposure to an environmental toxin, another child may experience learning problems or mild brain defects. Vaccine safety is not proved by stating the obvious that not every child who receives the standard CDC vaccine schedule has autism. As we witness a rapidly increasing number of vaccinated children being afflicted by conditions such as autism, food allergies, encephalitis, type 1 diabetes, and Crohn's disease, it's critical that we investigate further the role played by environmental toxins to better understand their pathology. And when we look into the independent science on the safety of vaccines, it's readily apparent that many of the ingredients found in vaccines are toxic, even in small amounts, and may contribute to a range of illnesses,including autism.

Dr. Brownstein: Why Are U.S. Children Dying At An Alarming Rate?

January 16, 2018 1:48 pm

A new study published in the January, 2018 edition of the journal Health Affairs compared the mortality rate of children in 19 wealthy, Western countries. Guess who finished last? If you guessed the country that spends the most money on health care then you guessed correctly. The United States spends more money on health care than any other country on the face of the earth. In fact, we spend nearly 20% of our gross national product on health care -- far greater when compared to any other Western country. The authors of the article comment, The United States has poorer child health outcomes than other wealthy nations despite greater per capita spending on health care for children. While child mortality progressively declined across all countries, mortality in the US has been higher than in peer nations since the 1980s. From 2001 to 2010 the risk of death in the US {when compared to other Western countries} was 76 percent greater for infants and 57 percent greater for children ages 1-19. Folks, if you want to measure the health of a country, one of the best indicators is the childhood mortality rate. Generally, the healthier the population is, the lower the childhood mortality rate. When you compare the U.S. childhood mortality rate to other Western countries, it is plain to see that our children are not doing well.

The State with the Sickest Children has the Highest Vaccination Rates

January 16, 2018 2:30 pm

According to the comprehensive state-by-state health rankings, Mississippi has remained squarely at the bottom of the nation's overall health rankings for decades. Mississippi's vaccine 'efficiency' is over 99.4% vaccine coverage in kindergartners, highest in the nation. This is because they do not allow parents to claim any exemptions for vaccines, one of three states that do not allow parental choice. Despite juxtaposing two critical pieces of health information about Mississippi's children -- high vaccine coverage and poor health rankings -- Dr. Paul Offit, one of the vaccine industry's most strident ambassadors, does not ask the obvious elephant-in-the-room question: Could one have something to do with the other? Offit makes it clear that he wants other states to follow Mississippi's example and take away parental rights to make vaccine decisions.

Why are so Many Healthy People Dying from the Flu After Receiving the Flu Shot?

Are Flu Deaths After Vaccination Really “Rare”? So how rare are these flu deaths following flu vaccinations? Can we really trust the health officials who are saying they are “rare” and encouraging everyone to receive the flu shot even when it is known it is not very effective?
In covering these flu deaths following flu vaccinations in the mainstream media, I have yet to see any truly investigative reporting showing any science or facts to back up health officials’ claims that these deaths are “very rare.” So let’s take a look at a few facts that can actually be verified...

Thimerosal Mercury in Vaccines Associated with Tics According to CDC Research

January 14, 2018 2:38 pm

Between November 2013 and September 2014, I was in direct contact with the CDC Whistleblower, Dr. William Thompson. I recently wrote about my interactions with Dr. Thompson in an editorial piece that appeared in the winter 2017 edition of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons (22:119). One of the key issues that I discussed with Dr. Thompson was the relationship between thimerosal and tics, based on CDC's own publications. The literature regarding thimerosal and tics (both motor and phonic) is quite compelling. Several of CDC's own studies show that high levels of thimerosal exposure via infant vaccines can lead to tics later in life. Given this consistent body of evidence, one would think that the CDC would call for a ban on the use of thimerosal in vaccines. However, this has never happened. In fact, the CDC will not even state a preference for administration of thimerosal-free vaccines. Tics are a common feature in autism (occurring 4 times more frequently in autistic children than in neurotypical).

New CDC Guidelines: 5 Year-Old Can Receive up to 19 Vaccinations in One Month

November 17, 2017 1:52 pm

On November 2, 2017, Neil Z. Miller made an online announcement that was guaranteed to shock thousands of parents worldwide. In a post, written on the popular social media platform Facebook, Miller exposed that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had recently hatched a plan to ensure that ALL children were up to date with their scheduled vaccinations, whether they were vaccinated or unvaccinated. He revealed that the CDC had launched a catch-up program which could cause an unvaccinated 5-year-old to receive as many as 19 vaccinations in one month. He wrote that: The CDC has just launched a program that will calculate a catch-up schedule for children who were not vaccinated on schedule. A 5-year-old child who was not previously vaccinated would be required to receive 19 vaccines in one month, including 6 doses of aluminum-containing injections! This catch-up schedule was NOT tested for safety to determine the immediate or long-term risk of neurological or immunological damage. Could their latest step be yet another one of the many underhanded tactics used by the CDC to implement mandatory vaccination?

Doctor Rachael Ross of Hit TV show Apologizes and Changes Her View on Vaccines

See what this former pro vaccine MD PhD (who gave countless vaccines to her patients) wrote below in this touching letter:

An Apology Letter:
By Dr. Rachael Ross

I've ordered thousands of vaccines in my career as a physician.   Until recently I had never considered vaccine injury as more than folklore.  Weeks ago I never would've believed a story about vaccine injured triplets, so the past few weeks have been difficult.  I have struggled to make sense of all that I have seen and learned.  I met a mother of triplets the other weekend, a very attractive white woman with years added onto her face and her smile.  She recalled to me the day her triplets were born.  She and her then husband were ecstatic that she was able to carry them for 36 weeks.

At the time, mom was so happy that they were inside of her long enough to mature, they were born perfectly healthy.  I can totally relate since I am now twelve weeks post0partum.  I had very similar worries carrying my little princess.  Mom's eyes dropped though as I gave her a hearty smile of excitement.  The same day that her triplets were given their six-month check-up and vaccines, was the same day that all three of her kids checked out.  She said it was as if someone replaced her children with new ones.  They unlearned all they knew'regressed and screamed for days.  I stood there motionless and speechless.  She didn't want my pity, nor my tears, she just wanted me to know.

I'm a new mom, a sister, an aunt, a cousin, a friend, and a family medicine physician.  I'm from a small town called Gary, Indiana.  As a matter of fact, I practice medicine about two blocks away from the house that I along-with my eight brothers and sisters grew up in.  My dad bought the house in the 60s, after he met my mom.  They both migrated to the Midwest to escape the blatant racial tension of the deep south, and the rest is history.

In our small town the emergency room is named after my dad for all the great medical care he has provided through the years.  During the financial boom he even donated money to build part of it? He's a pretty special guy; we both can sit and gush about each other for hours at a time.  I've always been a Daddy's girl.

I came back home to practice medicine in our small town after spending eight years in Nashville, TN.  I did my undergraduate work at Vanderbilt University.  After graduation I went to medical school at Meharry Medical College, my Dad's alma matar, with my two sisters Ruth and Rebekkah.

Our family-run clinic is sometimes my pride and joy, and other times the bane of my existence lol.  My brother Nathaniel is the director (he says he's going to miss me being pregnant because I was much more pleasant).  My mom Ruthie is the manager (she expects us to wear our white coats even when the AC is out).  My Dad, the smartest and most charming doctor I've ever met, is 86 and he still sees patients a few times a week.  We also have a wonderful doctor named Shelly Sandifer in our clinic.  She came to work with us after my sister Rebekkah passed away trying to have a child of her own.  Dr. Sandifer has a lovely Bajan/British accent, a great sense of humor, and the patients love her.  We practice community medicine every single day.

We treat families at our clinic.  Sometimes I don't have to ask patients much about their family history.  I treat their aunts, uncles, parents, and sometimes even their grandparents -- it's the best feeling in the world.  Our patients trust us to take care of them, and that is something that we all take very personally. When we say, 'our family, treating your family' -- we absolutely mean it.

We all took an oath to first and foremost 'Do No Harm.'  It's been difficult. Throughout my tenure as a physician, I have watched while our academy has pushed certain medication that we find years later has been causing more harm than good -- that hurts.

I have witnessed the vaccine schedule grow from 16 doses of 4 vaccines from birth to six years old when I was a child, to the current recommendation of 49 doses of 14 vaccines between birth and age six, and 69 doses of 16 vaccines between birth and the age of eighteen -- and we've been giving them on-time, sometimes five shots a day to help kids 'catch-up', and all without question.  Medical school and residency taught us all to do so.

I guess I cant help but wonder if there's a connection between the fact that when we had to give fewer vaccines we had fewer childhood diseases.  It is only human to wonder.  We had fewer learning disabilities, less asthma, less autism, and less diabetes. Autism in particular was 1 in 500 in the late seventies and it has now skyrocketed to 1 in 50.  Why so many?  Why so soon?

I am so sorry that I didn't know that the government has paid out $3billion to families injured by vaccines through the VICP (Vaccine Injury Compensation Program).  As a matter of fact, I assumed that all vaccines were very very safe.  They have to be because we give them to everyone's kids, right?!??  I am so sorry that I didn't realize that there are tens of thousands of families on a list that have never received compensation because they couldn't 100% prove that the vaccine created an injury (even though many of them can pinpoint the day and time that their babies' lights dimmed).

And until recently, I had never heard of a CDC scientist/whistleblower named Dr. William Thompson (note, I can't link to a story because even the article written in Forbes has been removed online). Dr Thompson was brave enough to come forward because his conscience was killing him. I feel like such an ignorant ASS to say the least.

Dr. Thompson revealed that a study conducted at the CDC showed a 236% increase in the rate of autism in African-American boys who received the MMR vaccine before the age of 36 months.  He states that an internal decision was made to change the study results to demonstrate that there was no increased risk -- and he feels really bad about all the lives he ruined.

The documentary Vaxxed plays a percentage of the four hours of voice recordings between the whistleblower/Dr. Thompson and another scientist.  All of this would be impossible to believe without those recorded phone conversations.

Of course I am Black mom, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend.  As a Black physician, with a mostly Black patient base, I am very very concerned and very sorry.  But I am also concerned as a person that loves all people and children regardless of race.  What does this information about one vaccine on one group of children infer about all vaccines and all groups of children?

As a mom of a new tiny precious being and a doctor of many, I am left with so many questions:  Should vaccines be delayed?  Are any vaccines safe?  If so, which ones?  Are there more vaccine-injured victims that we even know about?  Should genetic testing be conducted on all children before we assume that they can tolerate all of those vaccines?

And my most important question: Why won't Congress subpoena Dr. Thompson so that we can really really know the truth about this particular vaccine.

I have to thank Del Bigtree for taking the time to show me the data that I was inadvertently pretending not to see, and I really have to thank Dr. Thompson.  Without this information, we would never have known, and it all would've just been written off as mishmash of conspiracy theories.

With what I now know, I cannot support mandatory vaccines for children.  Some kids respond well to vaccines, but others do not.  How can we be sure who will and who will not?  Should we really sacrifice one for many?  Parents have to have the right to choose!  Parents have to make their own informed decisions.   Parents deserve access to this information which has been buried so deep that even I, a practicing physician, hadn't been aware of.

I apologize from the bottom of my heart to any children and parents that I have unknowingly harmed.  I had no idea.

Please ask questions and make the time to go see the documentary Vaxxed. Form your own opinions, do your own research, and then talk to your physician.   Demand to hear from Dr. Thompson, pass this information along to your loved ones, and start these conversations. We all deserve answers, and this is the only way to get any.

People keep asking me if I'm scared to speak about this.  My realest fear is that we will continue to assume that these moms are making this stuff up.

The Deadly Impossibility Of Herd Immunity Through Vaccination, by Dr. Russell Blaylock
Those who are observant have noticed a dangerous trend in the United States, as well as worldwide, and that is the resorting of various governments at different levels to mandating forced vaccination upon the public at large. My State of Mississippi has one of the most-restrictive vaccine-exemption laws in the United States, where exemptions are allowed only upon medical recommendation. Ironically, this is only on paper, as many have had as many as three physicians, some experts in neurological damage caused by vaccines, provide written calls for exemption, only to be turned down by the State's public-health officer.

Worse are the States, such as Massachusetts, New Jersey and Maryland, where forced vaccinations have either been mandated by the courts, the state legislature, or have such legislation pending. All of such policies strongly resemble those policies found in National Socialist empires, Stalinist countries, or Communist China.

When public-health officers are asked for the legal justification for such draconian measures as forcing people to accept vaccines that they deem either a clear and present danger to themselves and their loved ones or have had personal experience with serious adverse reactions to such vaccines, they usually resort to the need to protect the public.

One quickly concludes that if the vaccines are as effective as being touted by the public-health officials, then why should one fear the unvaccinated? Obviously the vaccinated would have at least 95% protection. This question puts them in a very difficult position. Their usual response is that a 'small' percentage of the vaccinated will not have sufficient protection and would still be at risk. Now, if they admit what the literature shows, that vaccine failure rates are much higher than the 5% they claim, they must face the next obvious question -- then why should anyone take the vaccine if there is a significant chance it will not protect?

When pressed further, they then resort to their favorite justification, the Holy Grail of the vaccine proponents -- herd immunity. This concept is based upon the idea that 95% (and some now say 100%) of the population must be vaccinated to prevent an epidemic. The percentages needing vaccination grows progressively. I pondered this question for some time before the answer hit me. Herd immunity is mostly a myth and applies only to natural immunity -- that is, contracting the infection itself.

Is Herd Immunity Real?

In the original description of herd immunity, the protection to the population at large occurred only if people contracted the infections naturally. The reason for this is that naturally-acquired immunity lasts for a lifetime. The vaccine proponents quickly latched onto this concept and applied it to vaccine-induced immunity. But, there was one major problem -- vaccine-induced immunity lasted for only a relatively short period, from 2 to 10 years at most, and then this applies only to humoral immunity. This is why they began, silently, to suggest boosters for most vaccines, even the common childhood infections such as chickenpox, measles, mumps, and rubella.

Then they discovered an even greater problem, the boosters were lasting for only 2 years or less. This is why we are now seeing mandates that youth entering colleges have multiple vaccines, even those which they insisted gave lifelong immunity, such as the MMR. The same is being suggested for full-grown adults. Ironically, no one in the media or medical field is asking what is going on. They just accept that it must be done.

That vaccine-induced herd immunity is mostly myth can be proven quite simply. When I was in medical school, we were taught that all of the childhood vaccines lasted a lifetime. This thinking existed for over 70 years. It was not until relatively recently that it was discovered that most of these vaccines lost their effectiveness 2 to 10 years after being given. What this means is that at least half the population, that is the baby boomers, have had no vaccine-induced immunity against any of these diseases for which they had been vaccinated very early in life. In essence, at least 50% or more of the population was unprotected for decades.

If we listen to present-day wisdom, we are all at risk of resurgent massive epidemics should the vaccination rate fall below 95%. Yet, we have all lived for at least 30 to 40 years with 50% or less of the population having vaccine protection. That is, herd immunity has not existed in this country for many decades and no resurgent epidemics have occurred. Vaccine-induced herd immunity is a lie used to frighten doctors, public-health officials, other medical personnel, and the public into accepting vaccinations.

When we examine the scientific literature, we find that for many of the vaccines protective immunity was 30 to 40%, meaning that 70% to 60% of the public has been without vaccine protection. Again, this would mean that with a 30% to 40% vaccine-effectiveness rate combined with the fact that most people lost their immune protection within 2 to 10 year of being vaccinated, most of us were without the magical 95% number needed for herd immunity. This is why vaccine defenders insist the vaccines have 95% effectiveness rates.

Without the mantra of herd immunity, these public-health officials would not be able to justify forced mass vaccinations. I usually give the physicians who question my statement that herd immunity is a myth a simple example. When I was a medical student almost 40 years ago, it was taught that the tetanus vaccine would last a lifetime. Then 30 years after it had been mandated, we discovered that its protection lasted no more than 10 years. Then, I ask my doubting physician if he or she has ever seen a case of tetanus? Most have not. I then tell them to look at the yearly data on tetanus infections -- one sees no rise in tetanus cases. The same can be said for measles, mumps, and other childhood infections. It was, and still is, all a myth.

The entire case for forced mass vaccination rest upon this myth and it is important that we demonstrate the falsity of this idea. Neil Z. Miller, in his latest book The Vaccine Information Manual, provides compelling evidence that herd immunity is a myth.

The Road to Hell is Paved with Good Intentions

Those pushing mandatory vaccination for an ever-growing list of diseases are a mixed bag. Some are quite sincere and truly want to improve the health of the United States. They believe the vaccine-induced herd immunity myth and likewise believe that vaccines are basically effective and safe. These are not the evil people.

A growing number are made of those with a collectivist worldview and see themselves as a core of elite wise men and women who should tell the rest of us what we should do in all aspects of our lives. They see us as ignorant cattle, who are unable to understand the virtues of their plan for America and the World. Like children, we must be made to take our medicine -- since, in their view, we have no concept of the true benefit of the bad-tasting medicine we are to be fed.

I have also found that a small number of people in the regulatory agencies and public health departments would like to speak out but are so intimidated and threatened with dismissal or destruction of their careers, that they remain silent. As for the media, they are absolutely clueless.

I have found that 'reporters' (we have few real journalists these days) rarely understand what they are reporting on and always trust and rely upon people in positions of official power, even if those people are unqualified to speak on the subject. Most of the time they run to the Centers for Disease Control or medical university to seek answers. I cannot count the number of times I have seen university department heads interviewed when it was obvious they had no clue as to the subject being discussed. Few such professors will pass up an opportunity to appear on camera or be quoted in a newspaper.

One must also appreciate that such reporters and editors are under an enormous economic strain, as vaccine manufacturers are major advertisers in all media outlets and for an obvious reason -- it controls content. A number of excellent stories on such medical subjects are spiked every day. That means we will always be relegated to the 'fringe media' as our media outlets are called. Despite the high quality of the journalism in many of the 'fringe' outlets, they have a much smaller audience. And despite this we are having an enormous effect on the debate.

As the Public Awakens, the Collectivist Becomes Desperate

John Jewkes, in his book Ordeal by Planning, observed that as the British collectivists began to see opposition rise to their grandiose plans, they became more desperate and aggressive in their reaction. They then initiated a campaign of smearing their opponents and blaming every failure on the unwillingness of the people to accept the planner's dictates without question. We certainly have seen this in this debate -- opponents to forced vaccinations are referred to as fringe scientists, kooks, uneducated, confused, and enemies of public safety -- reminiscent of Stalin's favorite phrase, 'enemy of the people.'

This desperation is based upon their fear that the public might soon catch on to the fact that the entire vaccine program is based upon nonsense, fear, and concocted fairy tales. One special fear of theirs is that the public might discover the fact that most vaccines are contaminated with a number of known and yet-to-be discovered viruses, bacteria, viral fragments, and DNA/RNA fragments. And, further, that our science demonstrates that these contaminants could lead to a number of slowly-developing degenerative diseases, including degenerative diseases of the brain. This is rarely discussed but is of major importance in this debate.

Director of Vaccine Research and Education
Michigan Opposing Mandatory Vaccines

It never ceases to amaze me how lies and manipulation keep the pro
vaccine circus going! The mainstream media falsely reports that the
whooping cough outbreaks and measles are due to the increasing exemption
use for public school attendance. Not only is this claim false and
designed to inflate anger between those who vaccinate and those who
selectively do not, is it causing discrimination against the
unvaccinated population. Further discrimination, pediatricians are
instructed to refuse care to those who refuse to vaccinate or
selectively vaccinate and now employers are forcing yearly vaccines for
their employees or they are threatened with termination. The false
reporting is causing confusion and fear among people and wrongly
directing our public servants to enforce mandated vaccines.

There is alarming evidence that the use of vaccines does not equate
immunity and that vaccines fail to protect. Outbreaks have been
documented in highly vaccinated populations for measles, mumps,
influenza and pertussis across the country the last twenty years but the
medical establishment and our news media fail to mention this. Today, I
will defend the unvaccinated position concerning the whooping cough,
(pertussis) outbreaks and the measles vaccine failure.

In my opinion, this controversy is a perfect example propaganda and
indoctrination. Indoctrination is the representation of one point of
view? the process is often distinguished from education by the fact that
the indoctrinated person is expected not to question or critically
examine the doctrine they have learned.

Pertussis (Whooping Cough) Outbreaks 2014

Here is a study proving that the pertussis vaccines does not protect and
may be the #1 source of the outbreaks. September - October 2000, Journal
of Emerging Infectious Diseases. Vol. 6, No. 5, '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.' AKA, recently
vaccinated adults can infect unprotected infants.

June, 2009 - A study reported in Pediatrics, they imply that the
outbreaks are predominantly from the unvaccinated but look at the
findings! They show that 92% of the children who got pertussis were
vaccinated. 'After examining the records of juvenile whooping cough
patients over an 8-month period, the doctors discovered that 81 percent
of patients had received the full series of whooping cough shots, and 11
percent had received only some of the shots. The remaining 8 percent had
not received any immunizations for whooping cough.' Pediatrics 2009
June; 123(6): 1446-1451.9 Here is the title of the actual article,
Whooping cough outbreak linked to 'unvaccinated children' Clearly, the
majority of those with outbreak were vaccinated but that is not how they
title the report.

2009 New Jersey had huge whooping cough outbreaks and 100% of the
children had been fully vaccinated. That was almost 15 years ago and
that should have been a sign that the vaccine was failing to protect.

[Vaccine Ingredients]

In 2012 research, reported by Reuters, reveals that 'Whooping cough
outbreaks are higher among vaccinated children compared with
unvaccinated children'. Dr. David Witt, infectious disease specialist at
the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center, San Rafael, California, 2012

2013 - National Academy of Science, US discussing the study, Tod Merkel
of the Food and Drug Administration said, "It could explain the increase
in pertussis that we're seeing in the U.S."

Around the world we see the same trend: Israel - Pertussis cases
increased 16 fold between 1998-2004 even though majority of the children
were vaccinated. 2003 -- Cyprus had pertussis outbreak in spite of 98%
vaccination rate.

A more accurate title of the headlines should read, 'Majority of the
Whooping Cough Outbreaks linked to the Vaccinated but those titles would
draw attention to the vaccine failure.

Measles Outbreaks 2015

Measles outbreaks are also in the news. Measles is a trivial illness for
99% of the people who get it and yet our media is calling it a
life-threatening illness-causing deaths. They are referring to deaths in
3rd world countries lacking in clean water, nutrition and sanitation.
They also do not discuss that in the last 10 years, we have had 2 deaths
in America from the wild measles illness but 108 deaths from the MMR
vaccine. (VAERS)

Measles for 99% of all people is trivial and at most, inconvenient. The
benefits of the measles infection are life-long immunity which is not
possible with the vaccines. The best time for the natural illness is
between the ages of 3 and 9 when these illnesses would ocure naturally
the way they did in the 1940s to late 1950s before the vaccine was
introduced in the early 1960s. Only then were people told the illnesses
was, 'life threatening'. Young adults who got the vaccine no longer are
protected because vaccines do not offer life-time immunity. No surprise
to me that we have adults that are having outbreaks of measles which can
be more difficult in adulthood.

In 1987, a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM)
documented a measles outbreak that occurred in Corpus Christi, Texas, in
the spring of 1985. Fourteen adolescent-age students, all of whom had
been vaccinated for measles, contracted the disease despite having been
injected with the MMR vaccine. Researchers noted that more than 99
percent of students at the school -- basically all of them -- had also
been vaccinated, with more than 95 percent of them showing detectable
antibodies to measles.

This highly revealing study completely contradicts what we hear today in
the media, claiming that unvaccinated individuals are responsible for
disease outbreaks like the one that reportedly began at Disneyland. 100%
of the students in Texas who contracted the measles 1985 were vaccinated
and virtually all of their peers were also vaccinated. Consequently,
so-called "herd immunity," which would have been activated based on what
health authorities claim as indisputable immunological fact, was also
shown to be an unsubstantiated myth. To falsely accuse the unvaccinated
because vaccines fail to protect is wrong.

MMR Vaccine Deaths

In the US, the death rate for measles in the last 10 years is minimal,
approximately 2 people have died. This does not warrant a national
frenzy involving our CDC, FDA, IOM and every media outlet across the
country. According to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System
(VAERS) there have been 108 deaths for the various MMR vaccines in the
same 10 year period. Congressional Hearings in 2000 documented that only
10% of all vaccine injury and deaths get reported to VAERS. When you
consider that the death rate from the MMR vaccine could be 80-90%
higher, it is clear that the vaccine is more deadly than the disease.

Pediatricians are Dangerous

We can thank our pediatricians for perpetuating the fear factor for
these illnesses. As long as people are fearful, they will continue to
run into medical clinics for their booster shots. It's a sick system
that can only survive by deception. It starts with the well-baby visits.
The well-baby visits are guaranteed income for the pediatricians. I ask
parents why they feel the need to take a healthy baby in for a check-up
every 2 months -- there is no law stating that we must do this. Dr. Robert
Mendelshon, famous pediatrician, said it well when he wrote in his book,
How To Raise A Healthy Child in Spite of Your Doctor, 'The purpose of
the pediatrician is to vaccinate your child -- indoctrinate them into a
life-long dependency on medications.' Talk about guarantee income!

Fire Your Pediatrician

Pediatrics started in the 1970s as a profession that would treat severe
childhood diseases but has transitioned to the gate-keepers of public
health. I believe that the decline in our pediatric health is directly
linked to the use of pediatricians. They have been in charge of our
children's health since the late 1970s and every year, our children's
health declines and is worse than the prior generation. We now have 54%
of your youth suffering with some form of chronic illnesses that require
regular medical treatment. I call this medical failure.

In Lies We Trust, Part 14 of 16
In this interview Dr. Maurice Hilleman reveals some astounding revelations. He admits that Merck knew their polio vaccine was contaminated with SV40, a cancer-causing monkey virus from 1953 - 63. For years, researchers suggested that millions of vials of polio vaccine, contaminated with SV40, infected individuals which caused human tumors, and by 1999, molecular evidence of SV40 infections were showing up in children born after 1982. Some experts now suggest the virus may have remained in the polio vaccine until as late as 1999. In 2002, the journal Lancet published compelling evidence that contaminated polio vaccine was responsible for up to half of the 55,000 non-Hodgkin's lymphoma cases that were occurring each year. And there is the likelihood that there was an importing and spreading of the AIDS virus in the same manner, as revealed in the video. Dr. Maurice Hilleman was one of the leading vaccine pioneers in the history of vaccines. He developed more than three dozen vaccines -- more than any other scientist in history -- and was the developer of Merck's vaccine program. He was a member of the U.S. National Academy of Science, the Institute of Medicine, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the American Philosophical Society, and received a special lifetime achievement award from the World Health Organization. When he was chief of the Department of Respiratory Diseases with what's now the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, he discovered the genetic changes that occur when the influenza virus mutates, known as shift and drift. He was also one of the early vaccine pioneers to warn about the possibility that simian viruses might contaminate vaccines.So Dr. Hilleman knew what he was talking about. And in his own words, "vaccines have to be considered the bargain basement technology for the 20th Century."

US Take Action: Bill calling for first ever federal vax/un-vaxxed study
Basic questions never asked and never answered

   Believe it or not a study comparing the overall health of a vaccinated population and an unvaccinated population has never been done in the United States. US Representative Bill Posey just introduced H.R. 3615, a bill which directs the Secretary of Health and Human Services "to conduct or support a comprehensive study comparing total health outcomes, including risk of autism, in vaccinated populations in the United States with such outcomes in unvaccinated populations in the United States, and for other purposes." We believe such a study is long overdue and you have to wonder why such a study was never done.

  Please click on the Take Action above to send a message to your member of the House of Representatives asking him or her to co-sponsor Rep. Posey's H.R. 3615. A message will also be sent to your two US Senators from your state asking them to introduce a similar bill in the US Senate.

   The number of vaccines given to American children has quintupled since 1986 when doctors and vaccine companies were given complete legal immunity from any injury caused by a vaccine. Since then we have seen an explosion in the prevalence of a wide range of pediatric disorders associated with immune system dysfunction including diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, allergies, asthma, ADHD, as well as autism. Yet the US has never taken a hard look at the health outcomes with a vaccinated and unvaccinated population. Why hasn't his obvious analysis been done?

  Here is a video of Rep. Posey trying to extract confirmation from Dr. Colleen Boyle, Director of the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities, that these studies have never been done at a hearing of the House Oversight & Government Reform Committee on November 29, 2012.

        There is no reason at all why such a study should not be done as soon as possible.

The HPV Vaccine: Herd Immunity or Human Sacrifice?


Dr. Russell Blaylock Shares His Take on the Ongoing Mandatory Vaccine Debate

Russell Blaylock M.D
Published on Jul 19, 2015

Malzberg Show - Dr. Blaylock shares his views on mandating vaccinations. Vaccinations should not be mandated as they have never been proven to be 100% safe nor effective. There is compelling scientific evidence showing that vaccinations are not as safe as the pharmaceutical industry-sponsored mainstream media are suggesting. Significant serious complications such as death, seizures, encephalitis and brain damage can occur as a result of vaccination, all this is well documented in the medical literature and such complications are more frequent than the pharmaceutical industry-sponsored mainstream media would have people believe.

No one has the right to force parents to vaccinate especially when it is well documented in scientific studies demonstrating the mechanisms by which vaccinations can cause harm to children.

If it could be demonstrated that vaccinations were 100% safe and do not cause any adverse effects or harm, then it would be a different story. However, this cannot be demonstrated and the scientific evidence is clearly showing that vaccinations are continuing to cause complications..

Since the increase in the vaccination schedule, there appears to also be a correlation between the increase in auto-immune disease, neurological damage, impairment in learning, memory and speech linked to vaccination.

The argument for mandating vaccination is that non-vaccinated children put other children at risk of disease. But if the vaccinations are as effective as the pharmaceutical companies suggest, why does it matter if other children are not vaccinated? If the vaccines are supposed to prevent the child from getting the disease anyway? This is a poor argument, but it makes a lot of money for the pharmaceutical industries who sponsor the media and lobby politicians to support mandating their vaccinations.

When the evidence for outbreaks like measles are examined we find that most of the children in these outbreaks were already fully vaccinated and that the vaccines are in fact no where near as effective as what the pharmaceutical companies are claiming. Many of these diseases such as measles and chicken pox are not fatal diseases in western countries, only in poor countries where there is lack of nutrition and the children there have compromised immune systems.

Deadly Immunity by Senator Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
Global Research
July 25, 2009

In June 2000, a group of top government scientists and health officials gathered for a meeting at the isolated Simpsonwood conference center in Norcross, Georgia. Convened by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the meeting was held at this Methodist retreat center, nestled in wooded farmland next to the Chattahoochee River, to ensure complete secrecy. The agency had issued no public announcement of the session -- only private invitations to fifty-two attendees. There were high-level officials from the CDC and the Food and Drug Administration, the top vaccine specialist from the World Health Organization in Geneva and representatives of every major vaccine manufacturer, including GlaxoSmithKline, Merck, Wyeth and Aventis Pasteur. All of the scientific data under discussion, CDC officials repeatedly reminded the participants, was strictly 'embargoed.' There would be no making photocopies of documents, no taking papers with them when they left.

Internal documents reveal that Eli Lilly, which first developed thimerosal, knew from the start that its product could cause damage -- and even death -- in both animals and humans.

The federal officials and industry representatives had assembled to discuss a disturbing new study that raised alarming questions about the safety of a host of common childhood vaccines administered to infants and young children. According to a CDC epidemiologist named Tom Verstraeten, who had analyzed the agency's massive database containing the medical records of 100,000 children, a mercury-based preservative in the vaccines -- thimerosal -- appeared to be responsible for a dramatic increase in autism and a host of other neurological disorders among children. 'I was actually stunned by what I saw,' Verstraeten told those assembled at Simpsonwood, citing the staggering number of earlier studies that indicate a link between thimerosal and speech delays, attention-deficit disorder, hyperactivity and autism. Since 1991, when the CDC and the FDA had recommended that three additional vaccines laced with the preservative be given to extremely young infants -- in one case, within hours of birth -- the estimated number of cases of autism had increased fifteenfold, from one in every 2,500 children to one in 166 children.

Even for scientists and doctors accustomed to confronting issues of life and death, the findings were frightening. 'You can play with this all you want,' Dr. Bill Weil, a consultant for the American Academy of Pediatrics, told the group. The results 'are statistically significant.' Dr. Richard Johnston, an immunologist and pediatrician from the University of Colorado whose grandson had been born early on the morning of the meeting's first day, was even more alarmed. 'My gut feeling'? he said. 'Forgive this personal comment -- I do not want my grandson to get a thimerosal-containing vaccine until we know better what is going on.'

But instead of taking immediate steps to alert the public and rid the vaccine supply of thimerosal, the officials and executives at Simpsonwood spent most of the next two days discussing how to cover up the damaging data. According to transcripts obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, many at the meeting were concerned about how the damaging revelations about thimerosal would affect the vaccine industry's bottom line. 'We are in a bad position from the standpoint of defending any lawsuits,' said Dr. Robert Brent, a pediatrician at the Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Delaware. 'This will be a resource to our very busy plaintiff attorneys in this country.' Dr. Bob Chen, head of vaccine safety for the CDC, expressed relief that 'given the sensitivity of the information, we have been able to keep it out of the hands of, let's say, less responsible hands.' Dr. John Clements, vaccines advisor at the World Health Organization, declared that 'perhaps this study should not have been done at all.' He added that 'the research results have to be handled,' warning that the study 'will be taken by others and will be used in other ways beyond the control of this group.'

In fact, the government has proved to be far more adept at handling the damage than at protecting children's health. The CDC paid the Institute of Medicine to conduct a new study to whitewash the risks of thimerosal, ordering researchers to 'rule out' the chemical's link to autism. It withheld Verstraeten's findings, even though they had been slated for immediate publication, and told other scientists that his original data had been 'lost' and could not be replicated. And to thwart the Freedom of Information Act, it handed its giant database of vaccine records over to a private company, declaring it off-limits to researchers. By the time Verstraeten finally published his study in 2003, he had gone to work for GlaxoSmithKline and reworked his data to bury the link between thimerosal and autism.

Vaccine manufacturers had already begun to phase thimerosal out of injections given to American infants -- but they continued to sell off their mercury-based supplies of vaccines until last year. The CDC and FDA gave them a hand, buying up the tainted vaccines for export to developing countries and allowing drug companies to continue using the preservative in some American vaccines -- including several pediatric flu shots as well as tetanus boosters routinely given to eleven-year-olds.

The drug companies are also getting help from powerful lawmakers in Washington. Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, who has received $873,000 in contributions from the pharmaceutical industry, has been working to immunize vaccine makers from liability in 4,200 lawsuits that have been filed by the parents of injured children. On five separate occasions, Frist has tried to seal all of the government's vaccine-related documents -- including the Simpsonwood transcripts -- and shield Eli Lilly, the developer of thimerosal, from subpoenas. In 2002, the day after Frist quietly slipped a rider known as the 'Eli Lilly Protection Act' into a homeland security bill, the company contributed $10,000 to his campaign and bought 5,000 copies of his book on bioterrorism. The measure was repealed by Congress in 2003 -- but earlier this year, Frist slipped another provision into an anti-terrorism bill that would deny compensation to children suffering from vaccine-related brain disorders. 'The lawsuits are of such magnitude that they could put vaccine producers out of business and limit our capacity to deal with a biological attack by terrorists,' says Dean Rosen, health policy adviser to Frist.

Even many conservatives are shocked by the government's effort to cover up the dangers of thimerosal. Rep. Dan Burton, a Republican from Indiana, oversaw a three-year investigation of thimerosal after his grandson was diagnosed with autism. 'Thimerosal used as a preservative in vaccines is directly related to the autism epidemic,' his House Government Reform Committee concluded in its final report. 'This epidemic in all probability may have been prevented or curtailed had the FDA not been asleep at the switch regarding a lack of safety data regarding injected thimerosal, a known neurotoxin.' The FDA and other public-health agencies failed to act, the committee added, out of 'institutional malfeasance for self protection' and 'misplaced protectionism of the pharmaceutical industry.'

The story of how government health agencies colluded with Big Pharma to hide the risks of thimerosal from the public is a chilling case study of institutional arrogance, power and greed. I was drawn into the controversy only reluctantly. As an attorney and environmentalist who has spent years working on issues of mercury toxicity, I frequently met mothers of autistic children who were absolutely convinced that their kids had been injured by vaccines. Privately, I was skeptical.

I doubted that autism could be blamed on a single source, and I certainly understood the government's need to reassure parents that vaccinations are safe; the eradication of deadly childhood diseases depends on it. I tended to agree with skeptics like Rep. Henry Waxman, a Democrat from California, who criticized his colleagues on the House Government Reform Committee for leaping to conclusions about autism and vaccinations. 'Why should we scare people about immunization,' Waxman pointed out at one hearing, 'until we know the facts'?

It was only after reading the Simpsonwood transcripts, studying the leading scientific research and talking with many of the nation's pre-eminent authorities on mercury that I became convinced that the link between thimerosal and the epidemic of childhood neurological disorders is real. Five of my own children are members of the Thimerosal Generation -- those born between 1989 and 2003 -- who received heavy doses of mercury from vaccines. 'The elementary grades are overwhelmed with children who have symptoms of neurological or immune-system damage,' Patti White, a school nurse, told the House Government Reform Committee in 1999. 'Vaccines are supposed to be making us healthier; however, in twenty-five years of nursing I have never seen so many damaged, sick kids. Something very, very wrong is happening to our children.'

More than 500,000 kids currently suffer from autism, and pediatricians diagnose more than 40,000 new cases every year. The disease was unknown until 1943, when it was identified and diagnosed among eleven children born in the months after thimerosal was first added to baby vaccines in 1931.

Some skeptics dispute that the rise in autism is caused by thimerosal-tainted vaccinations. They argue that the increase is a result of better diagnosis -- a theory that seems questionable at best, given that most of the new cases of autism are clustered within a single generation of children. 'If the epidemic is truly an artifact of poor diagnosis,' scoffs Dr. Boyd Haley, one of the world's authorities on mercury toxicity, 'then where are all the twenty-year-old autistics'? Other researchers point out that Americans are exposed to a greater cumulative 'load' of mercury than ever before, from contaminated fish to dental fillings, and suggest that thimerosal in vaccines may be only part of a much larger problem. It's a concern that certainly deserves far more attention than it has received -- but it overlooks the fact that the mercury concentrations in vaccines dwarf other sources of exposure to our children.

What is most striking is the lengths to which many of the leading detectives have gone to ignore -- and cover up -- the evidence against thimerosal. From the very beginning, the scientific case against the mercury additive has been overwhelming. The preservative, which is used to stem fungi and bacterial growth in vaccines, contains ethylmercury, a potent neurotoxin. Truckloads of studies have shown that mercury tends to accumulate in the brains of primates and other animals after they are injected with vaccines -- and that the developing brains of infants are particularly susceptible. In 1977, a Russian study found that adults exposed to much lower concentrations of ethylmercury than those given to American children still suffered brain damage years later. Russia banned thimerosal from children's vaccines twenty years ago, and Denmark, Austria, Japan, Great Britain and all the Scandinavian countries have since followed suit.

    'You couldn't even construct a study that shows thimerosal is safe,' says Haley, who heads the chemistry department at the University of Kentucky. 'It's just too darn toxic. If you inject thimerosal into an animal, its brain will sicken. If you apply it to living tissue, the cells die. If you put it in a petri dish, the culture dies. Knowing these things, it would be shocking if one could inject it into an infant without causing damage.'

Internal documents reveal that Eli Lilly, which first developed thimerosal, knew from the start that its product could cause damage -- and even death -- in both animals and humans. In 1930, the company tested thimerosal by administering it to twenty-two patients with terminal meningitis, all of whom died within weeks of being injected -- a fact Lilly didn't bother to report in its study declaring thimerosal safe. In 1935, researchers at another vaccine manufacturer, Pittman-Moore, warned Lilly that its claims about thimerosal's safety 'did not check with ours.' Half the dogs Pittman injected with thimerosal-based vaccines became sick, leading researchers there to declare the preservative 'unsatisfactory as a serum intended for use on dogs.'

In the decades that followed, the evidence against thimerosal continued to mount. During the Second World War, when the Department of Defense used the preservative in vaccines on soldiers, it required Lilly to label it 'poison.' In 1967, a study in Applied Microbiology found that thimerosal killed mice when added to injected vaccines. Four years later, Lilly's own studies discerned that thimerosal was 'toxic to tissue cells' in concentrations as low as one part per million -- 100 times weaker than the concentration in a typical vaccine. Even so, the company continued to promote thimerosal as 'nontoxic' and also incorporated it into topical disinfectants. In 1977, ten babies at a Toronto hospital died when an antiseptic preserved with thimerosal was dabbed onto their umbilical cords.

In 1982, the FDA proposed a ban on over-the-counter products that contained thimerosal, and in 1991 the agency considered banning it from animal vaccines. But tragically, that same year, the CDC recommended that infants be injected with a series of mercury-laced vaccines. Newborns would be vaccinated for hepatitis B within twenty-four hours of birth, and two-month-old infants would be immunized for haemophilus influenzae B and diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis.

The drug industry knew the additional vaccines posed a danger. The same year that the CDC approved the new vaccines, Dr. Maurice Hilleman, one of the fathers of Merck's vaccine programs, warned the company that six-month-olds who were administered the shots would suffer dangerous exposure to mercury. He recommended that thimerosal be discontinued, 'especially when used on infants and children,' noting that the industry knew of nontoxic alternatives. 'The best way to go,' he added, 'is to switch to dispensing the actual vaccines without adding preservatives.'

For Merck and other drug companies, however, the obstacle was money. Thimerosal enables the pharmaceutical industry to package vaccines in vials that contain multiple doses, which require additional protection because they are more easily contaminated by multiple needle entries. The larger vials cost half as much to produce as smaller, single-dose vials, making it cheaper for international agencies to distribute them to impoverished regions at risk of epidemics. Faced with this 'cost consideration,' Merck ignored Hilleman's warnings, and government officials continued to push more and more thimerosal-based vaccines for children. Before 1989, American preschoolers received eleven vaccinations -- for polio, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis and measles-mumps-rubella. A decade later, thanks to federal recommendations, children were receiving a total of twenty-two immunizations by the time they reached first grade.

As the number of vaccines increased, the rate of autism among children exploded. During the 1990s, 40 million children were injected with thimerosal-based vaccines, receiving unprecedented levels of mercury during a period critical for brain development. Despite the well-documented dangers of thimerosal, it appears that no one bothered to add up the cumulative dose of mercury that children would receive from the mandated vaccines. 'What took the FDA so long to do the calculations'? Peter Patriarca, director of viral products for the agency, asked in an e-mail to the CDC in 1999. 'Why didn't CDC and the advisory bodies do these calculations when they rapidly expanded the childhood immunization schedule'?

But by that time, the damage was done. At two months, when the infant brain is still at a critical stage of development, infants routinely received three inoculations that contained a total of 62.5 micrograms of ethylmercury -- a level 99 times greater than the EPA's limit for daily exposure to methylmercury, a related neurotoxin. Although the vaccine industry insists that ethylmercury poses little danger because it breaks down rapidly and is removed by the body, several studies -- including one published in April by the National Institutes of Health -- suggest that ethylmercury is actually more toxic to developing brains and stays in the brain longer than methylmercury.

Officials responsible for childhood immunizations insist that the additional vaccines were necessary to protect infants from disease and that thimerosal is still essential in developing nations, which, they often claim, cannot afford the single-dose vials that don't require a preservative. Dr. Paul Offit, one of CDC's top vaccine advisers, told me, 'I think if we really have an influenza pandemic -- and certainly we will in the next twenty years, because we always do -- there's no way on God's earth that we immunize 280 million people with single-dose vials. There has to be multidose vials.'

But while public-health officials may have been well-intentioned, many of those on the CDC advisory committee who backed the additional vaccines had close ties to the industry. Dr. Sam Katz, the committee's chair, was a paid consultant for most of the major vaccine makers and was part of a team that developed the measles vaccine and brought it to licensure in 1963. Dr. Neal Halsey, another committee member, worked as a researcher for the vaccine companies and received honoraria from Abbott Labs for his research on the hepatitis B vaccine.

[efoods]Indeed, in the tight circle of scientists who work on vaccines, such conflicts of interest are common. Rep. Burton says that the CDC 'routinely allows scientists with blatant conflicts of interest to serve on intellectual advisory committees that make recommendations on new vaccines,' even though they have 'interests in the products and companies for which they are supposed to be providing unbiased oversight.' The House Government Reform Committee discovered that four of the eight CDC advisers who approved guidelines for a rotavirus vaccine 'had financial ties to the pharmaceutical companies that were developing different versions of the vaccine.'

Offit, who shares a patent on one of the vaccines, acknowledged to me that he 'would make money' if his vote eventually leads to a marketable product. But he dismissed my suggestion that a scientist's direct financial stake in CDC approval might bias his judgment. 'It provides no conflict for me,' he insists. 'I have simply been informed by the process, not corrupted by it. When I sat around that table, my sole intent was trying to make recommendations that best benefited the children in this country. It's offensive to say that physicians and public-health people are in the pocket of industry and thus are making decisions that they know are unsafe for children. It's just not the way it works.'

Other vaccine scientists and regulators gave me similar assurances. Like Offit, they view themselves as enlightened guardians of children's health, proud of their 'partnerships' with pharmaceutical companies, immune to the seductions of personal profit, besieged by irrational activists whose anti-vaccine campaigns are endangering children's health. They are often resentful of questioning. 'science,' says Offit, 'is best left to scientists.'

Still, some government officials were alarmed by the apparent conflicts of interest. In his e-mail to CDC administrators in 1999, Paul Patriarca of the FDA blasted federal regulators for failing to adequately scrutinize the danger posed by the added baby vaccines. 'I'm not sure there will be an easy way out of the potential perception that the FDA, CDC and immunization-policy bodies may have been asleep at the switch re: thimerosal until now,' Patriarca wrote. The close ties between regulatory officials and the pharmaceutical industry, he added, 'will also raise questions about various advisory bodies regarding aggressive recommendations for use' of thimerosal in child vaccines.

If federal regulators and government scientists failed to grasp the potential risks of thimerosal over the years, no one could claim ignorance after the secret meeting at Simpsonwood. But rather than conduct more studies to test the link to autism and other forms of brain damage, the CDC placed politics over science. The agency turned its database on childhood vaccines -- which had been developed largely at taxpayer expense -- over to a private agency, America's Health Insurance Plans, ensuring that it could not be used for additional research. It also instructed the Institute of Medicine, an advisory organization that is part of the National Academy of Sciences, to produce a study debunking the link between thimerosal and brain disorders. The CDC 'wants us to declare, well, that these things are pretty safe,' Dr. Marie McCormick, who chaired the IOM's Immunization Safety Review Committee, told her fellow researchers when they first met in January 2001. 'We are not ever going to come down that [autism] is a true side effect' of thimerosal exposure. According to transcripts of the meeting, the committee's chief staffer, Kathleen Stratton, predicted that the IOM would conclude that the evidence was 'inadequate to accept or reject a causal relation' between thimerosal and autism. That, she added, was the result 'Walt wants' -- a reference to Dr. Walter Orenstein, director of the National Immunization Program for the CDC.

For those who had devoted their lives to promoting vaccination, the revelations about thimerosal threatened to undermine everything they had worked for. 'We've got a dragon by the tail here,' said Dr. Michael Kaback, another committee member. 'The more negative that [our] presentation is, the less likely people are to use vaccination, immunization -- and we know what the results of that will be. We are kind of caught in a trap. How we work our way out of the trap, I think is the charge.'

Even in public, federal officials made it clear that their primary goal in studying thimerosal was to dispel doubts about vaccines. 'Four current studies are taking place to rule out the proposed link between autism and thimerosal,' Dr. Gordon Douglas, then-director of strategic planning for vaccine research at the National Institutes of Health, assured a Princeton University gathering in May 2001. 'In order to undo the harmful effects of research claiming to link the [measles] vaccine to an elevated risk of autism, we need to conduct and publicize additional studies to assure parents of safety.' Douglas formerly served as president of vaccinations for Merck, where he ignored warnings about thimerosal's risks.

In May of last year, the Institute of Medicine issued its final report. Its conclusion: There is no proven link between autism and thimerosal in vaccines. Rather than reviewing the large body of literature describing the toxicity of thimerosal, the report relied on four disastrously flawed epidemiological studies examining European countries, where children received much smaller doses of thimerosal than American kids. It also cited a new version of the Verstraeten study, published in the journal Pediatrics, that had been reworked to reduce the link between thimerosal and autism. The new study included children too young to have been diagnosed with autism and overlooked others who showed signs of the disease. The IOM declared the case closed and -- in a startling position for a scientific body -- recommended that no further research be conducted.

The report may have satisfied the CDC, but it convinced no one. Rep. David Weldon, a Republican physician from Florida who serves on the House Government Reform Committee, attacked the Institute of Medicine, saying it relied on a handful of studies that were 'fatally flawed' by 'poor design' and failed to represent 'all the available scientific and medical research.' CDC officials are not interested in an honest search for the truth, Weldon told me, because 'an association between vaccines and autism would force them to admit that their policies irreparably damaged thousands of children. Who would want to make that conclusion about themselves''

Under pressure from Congress and parents, the Institute of Medicine convened another panel to address continuing concerns about the Vaccine Safety Datalink Data Sharing program. In February, the new panel, composed of different scientists, criticized the way the VSD had been used in the Verstraeten study, and urged the CDC to make its vaccine database available to the public.

So far, though, only two scientists have managed to gain access. Dr. Mark Geier, president of the Genetics Center of America, and his son, David, spent a year battling to obtain the medical records from the CDC. Since August 2002, when members of Congress pressured the agency to turn over the data, the Geiers have completed six studies that demonstrate a powerful correlation between thimerosal and neurological damage in children. One study, which compares the cumulative dose of mercury received by children born between 1981 and 1985 with those born between 1990 and 1996, found a 'very significant relationship' between autism and vaccines. Another study of educational performance found that kids who received higher doses of thimerosal in vaccines were nearly three times as likely to be diagnosed with autism and more than three times as likely to suffer from speech disorders and mental retardation. Another soon-to-be published study shows that autism rates are in decline following the recent elimination of thimerosal from most vaccines.

As the federal government worked to prevent scientists from studying vaccines, others have stepped in to study the link to autism. In April, reporter Dan Olmsted of UPI undertook one of the more interesting studies himself. Searching for children who had not been exposed to mercury in vaccines -- the kind of population that scientists typically use as a 'control' in experiments -- Olmsted scoured the Amish of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, who refuse to immunize their infants. Given the national rate of autism, Olmsted calculated that there should be 130 autistics among the Amish. He found only four. One had been exposed to high levels of mercury from a power plant. The other three -- including one child adopted from outside the Amish community -- had received their vaccines.

At the state level, many officials have also conducted in-depth reviews of thimerosal. While the Institute of Medicine was busy whitewashing the risks, the Iowa legislature was carefully combing through all of the available scientific and biological data. 'After three years of review, I became convinced there was sufficient credible research to show a link between mercury and the increased incidences in autism,' says state Sen. Ken Veenstra, a Republican who oversaw the investigation. 'The fact that Iowa's 700 percent increase in autism began in the 1990s, right after more and more vaccines were added to the children's vaccine schedules, is solid evidence alone.' Last year, Iowa became the first state to ban mercury in vaccines, followed by California. Similar bans are now under consideration in thirty-two other states.

But instead of following suit, the FDA continues to allow manufacturers to include thimerosal in scores of over-the-counter medications as well as steroids and injected collagen. Even more alarming, the government continues to ship vaccines preserved with thimerosal to developing countries -- some of which are now experiencing a sudden explosion in autism rates. In China, where the disease was virtually unknown prior to the introduction of thimerosal by U.S. drug manufacturers in 1999, news reports indicate that there are now more than 1.8 million autistics. Although reliable numbers are hard to come by, autistic disorders also appear to be soaring in India, Argentina, Nicaragua and other developing countries that are now using thimerosal-laced vaccines. The World Health Organization continues to insist thimerosal is safe, but it promises to keep the possibility that it is linked to neurological disorders 'under review.'

I devoted time to study this issue because I believe that this is a moral crisis that must be addressed. If, as the evidence suggests, our public-health authorities knowingly allowed the pharmaceutical industry to poison an entire generation of American children, their actions arguably constitute one of the biggest scandals in the annals of American medicine. 'The CDC is guilty of incompetence and gross negligence,' says Mark Blaxill, vice president of Safe Minds, a nonprofit organization concerned about the role of mercury in medicines. 'The damage caused by vaccine exposure is massive. It's bigger than asbestos, bigger than tobacco, bigger than anything you've ever seen.'

It's hard to calculate the damage to our country -- and to the international efforts to eradicate epidemic diseases -- if Third World nations come to believe that America's most heralded foreign-aid initiative is poisoning their children. It's not difficult to predict how this scenario will be interpreted by America's enemies abroad. The scientists and researchers -- many of them sincere, even idealistic -- who are participating in efforts to hide the science on thimerosal claim that they are trying to advance the lofty goal of protecting children in developing nations from disease pandemics. They are badly misguided. Their failure to come clean on thimerosal will come back horribly to haunt our country and the world's poorest populations.

Global Research comments: This story has been updated to correct several inaccuracies in the original, published version. As originally reported, American preschoolers received only three vaccinations before 1989, but the article failed to note that they were innoculated a total of eleven times with those vaccines, including boosters. The article also misstated the level of ethylmercury received by infants injected with all their shots by the age of six months. It was 187 micrograms -- an amount forty percent, not 187 times, greater than the EPA's limit for daily exposure to methylmercury. Finally, because of an editing error, the article misstated the contents of the rotavirus vaccine approved by the CDC. It did not contain thimerosal. Salon and Rolling Stone regret the errors.

An earlier version of this story stated that the Institute of Medicine convened a second panel to review the work of the Immunization Safety Review Committee that had found no evidence of a link between thimerosal and autism. In fact, the IOM convened the second panel to address continuing concerns about the Vaccine Safety Datalink Data Sharing program, including those raised by critics of the IOM's earlier work. But the panel was not charged with reviewing the committee's findings. The story also inadvertently omitted a word and transposed two sentences in a quote by Dr. John Clements, and incorrectly stated that Dr. Sam Katz held a patent with Merck on the measles vaccine. In fact, Dr. Katz was part of a team that developed the vaccine and brought it to licensure, but he never held the patent. Salon and Rolling Stone regret the errors.

CLARIFICATION: After publication of this story, Salon and Rolling Stone corrected an error that misstated the level of ethylmercury received by infants injected with all their shots by the age of six months. It was 187 micrograms -- an amount forty percent, not 187 times, greater than the EPA's limit for daily exposure to methylmercury. At the time of the correction, we were aware that the comparison itself was flawed, but as journalists we considered it more appropriate to state the correct figure rather than replace it with another number entirely.

Since that earlier correction, however, it has become clear from responses to the article that the forty-percent number, while accurate, is misleading. It measures the total mercury load an infant received from vaccines during the first six months, calculates the daily average received based on average body weight, and then compares that number to the EPA daily limit. But infants did not receive the vaccines as a 'daily average' -- they received massive doses on a single day, through multiple shots. As the story states, these single-day doses exceeded the EPA limit by as much as 99 times. Based on the misunderstanding, and to avoid further confusion, we have amended the story to eliminate the forty-percent figure.

Correction: The story misattributed a quote to Andy Olson, former legislative counsel to Senator Bill Frist. The comment was made by Dean Rosen, health policy adviser to the senator. Rolling Stone and regret the error.

Kennedy Report Sparks Controversy

'Deadly Immunity,' our story about the link between mercury in vaccines and the dramatic rise in autism among children [RS 977/978], sparked intense reaction from the medical establishment and several leading news organizations. The story, by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. -- part of an ongoing collaboration with -- documented the government's efforts to conceal alarming data about the dangers of vaccines.

What is most striking is the lengths to which major media outlets have gone to disparage the story and to calm public fears -- even in the face of the questionable science on the subject. In a segment on World News Tonight titled 'A Closer Look,' ABC pointed out that Kennedy is 'not a scientist or a doctor' and dismissed his extensive evidence as nothing more than 'a few scientific studies.' The network also trotted out its medical editor, Dr. Timothy Johnson, to praise the 'impeccably impartial Institute of Medicine' and to again state that Kennedy is not a scientist.

The New York Times, in a front-page story on the subject, devoted only one line to Kennedy's article, which it said accused public-health officials and drugmakers of 'conspiring' to hide the data on autism -- a word that our story neither used nor implied. (The Wall Street Journal, in an op-ed attacking the article, was even more misleading, using the word 'conspiracy' four times.) The Times then went on, for more than a full page, to portray concerns over vaccines as nothing more than the misguided fears of parents who suffer from 'scientific illiteracy,' unable to understand the medical studies that prove immunizations to be safe. It depicted studies reviewed by the Institute of Medicine as definitive without even bothering to address the host of serious questions raised about their validity: conflicting diagnoses of autism, mixed-up data from HMOs and research skewed to exclude many sick kids.

Rolling Stone and Salon fact-checked the article thoroughly before publication, insisting on primary documentation for every statement in the story, and posted links to the most significant materials online to enable readers to judge for themselves. The final article contained six errors. These ranged from inadvertently transposing a quote and confusing a drug license for a patent to relying on a figure that incorrectly calculated an infant's exposure to mercury over six months, rather than citing the even more dangerous amount injected on a single day. (The mistakes were corrected online as soon as they were discovered and can be viewed in detail at both and

It is important to note, however, that none of the mistakes weaken the primary point of the story. The government's own records show that it has failed to do the science necessary to put to rest reasonable concerns about vaccines. If the scientists had simply done their job rather than covering their tracks, there would be no controversy today. Instead, the government cannot even provide a definitive figure of the number of cases of autism among American children -- a number obviously critical to any serious scientific investigation -- and yet expects the public to believe that it has ruled out any link between vaccines and an illness it does not even track.

'science,' as one doctor in our story insisted, 'is best left to scientists.' But when the scientists fail to do their job, resorting to closed-door meetings and rigged studies, others in society have not only a right but a moral obligation to question their work. In the coming years, further research may indeed demonstrate that mercury in vaccines is not responsible for the rise in autism. For now, though, we can only raise a very real and legitimate alarm -- and hope that the government's well-documented mishandling of its own research did not needlessly jeopardize the health of hundreds of thousands of children.

A Glimpse into the Scary World of Vaccine Adjuvants
By Edda West  - Published in VRAN Newsletter - Winter 2005

Adjuvants are formulated compounds, which when combined with vaccine antigens intensify the body's immune response.  They are used to elicit an early, high and long-lasting immune response.  "The chemical nature of adjuvants, their mode of action and their reactions (side effect) are highly variable in terms of how they affect the immune system and how serious their adverse effects are due to the resultant hyperactivation of the immune system. While adjuvants enable the use of less *antigen to achieve the desired immune response and reduce vaccine production costs, with few exceptions, adjuvants are foreign to the body and cause adverse reactions", writes Australian scientist Viera Scheibner Ph.D,   (1)

The most common adjuvant for human use is an aluminum salt called alum derived from aluminum hydroxide, or aluminum phosphate. A quick read of the scientific literature reveals that the neurotoxic effects of aluminum were recognized 100 years ago.  Aluminum is a neurotoxicant and has been linked to Alzheimer's disease and other neurological disorders. Prior to 1980, kidney patients undergoing long term dialysis treatments often suffered dialysis encephalopathy syndrome, the result of acute intoxication by the use of an aluminium-containing dialysate. This is now avoided using modern techniques of water purification.  In preterm infants, prolonged intravenous feeding with solutions containing aluminum is associated with impaired neurologic development. Scientists speculate that aluminum neurotoxicity may be related to cell damage via free radical production, impairment of glucose metabolism, and effects on nerve signal transduction. (2) Vaccines which contain both aluminum adjuvants and mercury based preservative, greatly magnify the neurotoxic effects. (3)

Macrophagic myofasciitis (MMF) is a muscle disease first identified in 1993, and has been linked to vaccines containing aluminum adjuvants. Muscle pain is the most frequent symptom which can be localized to the limbs or be more diffuse. Other symptoms include joint pain, muscle weakness, fatigue, fever, and muscle tenderness. The disorder is associated with an altered immune system in some, but not all patients. A study published in the journal Brain (2001) revealed that 50 out of 50 patients had received vaccines against hepatitis B virus (86%), hepatitis A virus (19%) or tetanus toxoid (58%), 3-96 months (median 36 months) before biopsy. "We conclude that the MMF lesion is secondary to intramuscular injection of aluminium hydroxide-containing vaccines, shows both long-term persistence of aluminium hydroxide and an ongoing local immune reaction, and is detected in patients with systemic symptoms which appeared subsequently to vaccination", write the authors of the study. (4)

But aluminum's neurotoxicity is of less concern to the vaccine industry than the fact that it elicits a lesser antibody response to the so called purer recombinant or synthetic antigens used in modern day vaccines than in older style live or killed whole organism vaccines. "This has created a major need for improved and more powerful adjuvants for use in these vaccines."   (5)

For decades, vaccine developers have been tinkering with various substances to trick the body into heightened immune responses.  The most effective adjuvants are formulated with oils but have long been considered too reactive for use in humans. Immunologists have known for decades that a microscopic dose of even a few molecules of adjuvant injected into the body can cause disturbances in the immune system and have known since the1930's that oil based adjuvants are particularly dangerous,  which is why their use has been restricted to experiments with animals.

The classic oil based adjuvant called Freund's Complete Adjuvant can cause permanent organ damage and irreversible disease - specifically autoimmune diseases.  When scientists want to induce autoimmune disease in a lab animal, they inject it with Freund's Complete Adjuvant, which causes great suffering and is considered by some too inhumane to even inject into animals.

Dr. Jules Freund creator of this oil based adjuvant warned in 1956 that animals injected with his formulation developed terrible, incurable conditions:  allergic aspermatogenesis (stoppage of sperm production), experimental allergic encephalomyelitis (the animal version of MS), allergic neuritis (inflammation of the nerves that can lead to paralysis) and other severe autoimmune disorders. (6)

Adjuvants can break "tolerance", meaning they can disable the immune system to the degree that it loses its ability to distinguish what is "self" from what is foreign.  Normally, the immune system ignores the constituents of one's own body.  Immunologists call this "tolerance".  But if something happens to break  "tolerance", then the immune system turns relentlessly self-destructive, attacking the body it is supposed to defend. (6)

Scientists theorize that oil based adjuvants have the ability to "hyperactivate" the immune system, and in doing so, create chaos by inducing such an extremely powerful response that the immune system literally goes haywire and starts attacking elements it would normally ignore. (6)

Another theory has to do with "specificity". One of the great distinguishing characteristics of the immune system is something akin to a highly sensitive innate intelligence that has evolved over eons to be able to respond very precisely to what it deems to be a threat to the body. Because the body contains many types of oily molecules and lipids, it may be that when an oil is injected, the immune system responds to it not only specifically,  but with heightened intensity because the oil adjuvant resembles so closely the natural oils found in the body.  A "cross reaction" then happens, sending the immune system into chaos destroying any oils found anywhere in the body that resemble the adjuvant oil. Demyelinating diseases like multiple sclerosis are an example of this destructive autoimmune process. (6)

To deepen one's understanding of the shadowy world of vaccine development, award winning investigative journalist Gary Matsumoto's new book is a "must read."  It documents the secret human medical experimentation conducted on American citizens by doctors and scientists working for the U.S. military. It is a book about "betrayal of the most fundamental rules of medical ethics; and betrayal of the basic duty of military and civilian leaders to protect the people they govern."  Vaccine A: The Covert Government Experiment That's Killing our Soldiers and Why GI's are Only the First Victims,  is a gripping read into the mad science world of the U.S. military's biowarfare vaccine development program which, since 1987 has injected tens of thousands of U.S. troops with an experimental unlicensed anthrax vaccine containing squalene.   An oil based adjuvant, squalene has been known for decades to cause severe autoimmune diseases in laboratory animals. Writes Matsumoto, "The unethical experiments detailed in this book are ongoing, with little prospect of being self-limiting because they have been shielded from scrutiny and public accountability by national security concerns."  Reading this book, one gets a permanent chill in the spine as we glimpse the "writing on the wall" of what is to come. (6,7)

"When UCLA Medical School's Michael Whitehouse and Frances Beck injected squalene combined with other materials into rats and guinea pigs back in the 1970's, few oils were more effective at causing the animal versions of arthritis and multiple sclerosis", writes Matsumoto. In 1999, Dr. Johnny Lorentzen, an immunologist at Sweden's Karolinska Institute proved that on injection, "otherwise benign molecules like squalene can stimulate a self-destructive immune response", even though they occur naturally in the body. Other research institutes have also shown that the immune system makes antibodies to squalene, but only after it is injected  (6) We now know that squalene, added to boost immune response in a formulation known as MF59,  is the secret ingredient in certain lots of experimental anthrax vaccine that has caused devastating autoimmune diseases and death in countless Gulf War vets (Canadian, British and Australian troops were also injected with squalene laced vaccine), and continues to be used today. There is a "close match between the squalene-induced diseases in animals and those observed in humans injected with this oil:  rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis and systemic lupus erythematosus", writes Matsumoto. These three illnesses have been proven to be caused by this oil, but there is an additional long list of autoimmune diseases  associated with squalene injection into humans.   (6) "There are now data in more than two dozen peer-reviewed scientific papers, from ten different laboratories in the U.S., Europe, Asia and Australia, documenting that squalene-based adjuvants can induce autoimmune diseases in animals..observed in mice, rats, guinea pigs and rabbits.  Sweden's Karolinska Institute has demonstrated that squalene alone can induce the animal version of rheumatoid arthritis.  The Polish Academy of Sciences has shown that in animals, squalene alone can produce catastrophic injury to the nervous system and the brain.  The University of Florida Medical School has shown that in animals, squalene alone can induce production of antibodies specifically associated with systemic lupus erythematosus", writes Matsumoto. (6)

Long List of Side Effects Referring to squalene in her extensive article on adjuvants, Dr. Scheibner writes, "This adjuvant contributed to the cascade of reactions called "Gulf War syndrome", documented in the soldiers involved in the Gulf War. The symptoms they developed included arthritis, fibromyalgia,  lymphadenopathy, rashes, photosensitive rashes, malar rashes, chronic fatigue, chronic headaches, abnormal body hair loss, non-healing skin lesions, aphthous ulcers, dizziness, weakness, memory loss, seizures, mood changes, neuropsychiatric problems, anti-thyroid effects, anaemia, elevated ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate), systemic lupus erythematosus, multiple sclerosis, ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) also known as Lou Gehrig's disease, Raynaud's phenomenon, Sjorgren's syndrome, chronic diarrhoea, night sweats and low-grade fevers. (1)

Matsumoto punctuates his book with poignant interviews of military personnel who suffered many of these extreme and devastating syndromes, all of whom tested positive for anti-squalene antibodies which has become THE definitive marker for people who have been injected with this adjuvant and who have gone on to develop catastrophic diseases.

Immunologist, Dr. Pamela Asa was the first person to recognize that the autoimmune diseases she was seeing in military personnel mirrored those in experimental animals injected with oil formulated adjuvants.  When she met a patient with similar autoimmune symptoms who had participated in an experimental herpes vaccine trial, who also knew he had been injected with MF59, a squalene adjuvant being used as a 'placebo' in that study, everything began to fall into place.  Pam Asa contacted Dr. Robert Garry, a leading virologist at Tulane University Medical School, whose specialty is developing antibody tests and asked him to develop a test for the detection of anti-squalene antibodies -  a test that ultimately became the most important forensic and diagnostic tool identifying patients whose autoimmune diseases followed injection with squalene laced anthrax vaccine. (6)

Juxtaposed to heart wrenching testimonies of shattered health and ruined lives is the military's defiant stonewall and denial that a squalene laced anthrax vaccine was  injected into thousands of its people without their informed consent - this despite the fact that the FDA and independent researchers have tested and identified varying amounts of squalene in specific lots of the vaccine.

Even more stunning is the fact that by 1997, hundreds of millions of dollars had already been spent testing vaccines formulated with squalene adjuvants by leading research institutes like NIH (National Institutes of Health) who tested its efficacy in HIV vaccines,  the National Cancer Institute who for nearly two decades conducted research with squalene-boosted vaccines, and the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) had been testing it in animals since 1988 and began human clinical trials in1991. Nineteen of NIAID's 23 trials were for prototype HIV vaccines.  Writes Matsumoto, " Squalene adjuvants are a key ingredient in a whole new generation of vaccines intended for mass immunization around the globe." (6)

Immune System Sees Squalene as an Enemy to Attack Researchers at Tulane Medical School and the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research "have both proven that the immune system responds specifically to the squalene molecule.  Squalene's pathway through the body has been tracked with a radioactive tracer in animals by none other than Chiron, (well known flu vaccine manufacturer) and maker of MF59, the squalene-based adjuvant, now also a component of FLUAD, an Italian influenza vaccine.  (6)

The immune system does in fact "see" squalene and recognizes it as an oil molecule native to the body. The key is "route of administration".  As Gary Matsumoto says, "Squalene is not just a molecule found in a knee or elbow - it is found throughout the nervous system and the brain."  When it is injected into the body, the immune system sees it as an enemy to be attacked and eliminated.(6)

As any immunologist will tell you, the way an antigen encounters the immune system makes all the difference. You can eat squalene - no problem as it is an oil the body can easily digest.  But studies in animals and humans show that injecting squalene will "galvanize the immune system into attacking it,  which can produce a self-destructive cross reaction against the same molecule in the places where it occurs naturally in the body - and where it is critical to the health of the nervous system." (6)

This phenomenon is also known as 'molecular mimicry', where the immune system forms antibodies against one of its own structures and will continue to attack the 'self' molecule in the body that resembles the one in the germ,  or as is  the case with squalene, an identical substance that is naturally present in the body.  Once this self-destructive process begins, it never stops as the body continues to make the molecule the immune system is now trained to attack.

Another example involving autoimmune 'molecular mimicry' is when the immune system has been sensitized to attack myelin, the insulating fatty coating around nerve fibres which insures the smooth relay of nerve signals. The body would continue to make myelin in order to replenish and repair the protective sheath around its nerve endings. But says Matsumoto, "In the act of doing so, the body immunizes itself against itself, administering over and over again what amounts to a booster dose of something that the immune system now wants to get rid of.  This vital constituent (myelin) is now the enemy, and the immune system is now programmed to obliterate it in an endless loop of self-destruction" -  the process involved in MS (multiple sclerosis), and ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease).(6)

Tying molecular mimicry to the autism epidemic, many children have regressed into autism spectrum disorders after injection with the triple live virus MMR (measles,mumps,rubella) vaccine.  Dr.Vijendra Singh's research at Utah State University suggests that auto-antibodies are attacking myelin in these children.  He has shown that many autistic children have auto-antibodies to brain myelin basic protein (MBP) as well as elevated levels of measles virus antibodies. "Immunoblotting analysis showed the presence of an unusual MMR antibody in 60% (75 of 125) of autistic children, but none of the 92 normal children had this antibody. In addition, there was a positive correlation (greater than 90%) between MMR antibody and MBP auto-antibody, suggesting a causal association between MMR and brain autoimmunity in autism. This is one of the most important findings in autism to date, which prompted us to link measles virus in the etiology of the disorder", writes Dr. Singh. (8,9,10)

Immunologist Dr. Bonnie Dunbar has also done extensive research on the mechanisms of injury inflicted by hepatitis B vaccine and has observed similar autoimmune processes involving molecular mimicry in people who developed devastating neuroimmune syndromes after injection with this vaccine.  (11)

Molecular Mimicry as a Bio-Weapon Matsumoto reports that Soviet bioweaponeers used the principal of molecular mimicry in the 1980's to engineer a 'designer disease' that would attack myelin.  By splicing a fragment of myelin basic protein into legionella bacterium, they created what amounted to a living "nano-bomb", which they injected into guinea pigs.  What they found was that the immune system quickly cleared the legionella bacterium, but the myelin molecule, smuggled in by this microbial "Trojan horse" initiated a second wave of disease which caused experimental allergic encephalomyelitis, the animal version of MS.  The Soviets recognized this creation for what it was - a biological time bomb!! (6)

"Squalene is a kind of trigger for the real biological weapon: the immune system.  When the immune system's full repertoire of cells and antibodies start attacking the tissues they are supposed to protect, the results can be catastrophic," writes Matsumoto.  His assessment is seconded by Dr. Pam Asa -  "Oil adjuvants are the most insidious chemical weapon ever devised." (6)

"Molecular mimicry, seen for its diabolical potential as a weapon by the Soviets as far back as the 1980's, also applies to squalene. But the real problem with using squalene, of course, is not that it mimics a molecule found in the body; it is the same molecule," writes Matsumoto.  "So what American scientists conceived as a vaccine booster was another "nano-bomb", instigating chronic, unpredictable and debilitating disease.  When the NIH (National Institutes of Health) argued that squalene would be safe because it is native to the body, just the opposite was true.  Squalene's natural presence in the body made it one of the most dangerous molecules ever injected into man!" (6)

The main proponents for the use of squalene in vaccines have been the U.S Department of Defense and the NIH. The anti-squalene antibodies in sick American and British military personnel are evidence that military experimentation has caused an unprecedented health catastrophe in tens of thousands of people onto whom the vaccine was forced and who were denied the right to make an informed decision based on existing scientific knowledge of the dangers of injecting squalene.  "By adding squalene to their new anthrax vaccine, they did not make a better vaccine, they made a biological weapon." (6) .

Why , one would obviously ask, would anyone knowingly inject such a dangerous substance into humans? Certainly in terms of the U.S. military's decision,  they chose to turn a blind eye to the existing science, which for decades had documented the immune destructive properties of squalene. They justified its use because they knew they had a weak and ineffective vaccine which needed a serious boost.  In the face of weaponized biowarfare agents like anthrax already developed by Russia and fear that it was also possessed by Iraq, they were desperate to increase the vaccine's effectiveness as they launched into the first Gulf War.  Additionally, explains Matsumoto, "scientists in the United States are now literally invested in squalene.  Army scientists who developed the second generation anthrax vaccine have reputations to protect and licensing fees to reap for the army..[and] .worldwide rights to develop and commercialize the new recombinant vaccine for anthrax."  (6)

He goes on to explain, "the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has been supporting both animal and human research with squalene since the 1980's. Squalene has become perhaps the most ubiquitous oil adjuvant on the planet, which is something that should concern everyone.  Many of the cutting edge vaccines currently in development by the NIH and its corporate partners contain squalene in one formulation or another.  There is squalene in the prototype recombinant vaccines for HIV, malaria, herpes, influenza, cytomegalovirus and human papillomavirus.  Some of these prototypes like HIV, malaria and influenza are intended for mass immunization around the globe." (6)

Squalene Adjuvants Enter the Global Market FLUAD, the squalene boosted flu vaccine has been licensed in Italy since 1997.  It contains MF59, the squalene adjuvant made by Chiron. Although all the published papers co-authored by Chiron-employed scientists and Italian researchers have reported MF59 to be safe, Gary Matsumoto suggests a flaw in study designs may  "prevent researchers from seeing the vaccine's real risks."  Testing of FLUAD was limited to elderly people in nursing homes - average age was 71.5 which would tend to obscure autoimmune problems that might arise for a number of reasons. If autoimmune symptoms like joint pain and fatigue did occur in geriatric Italians, doctors might not connect these complaints to anything but old age. (6)

"Autoimmunity is notorious for taking years to diagnose because the early symptoms (e.g. headaches, joint and muscle pain and fatigue) are so vague; primary care physicians often fail to recognize it...a large Phase lV trial did not even bother to analyze the "common-post immunization reactions" in study participants, recording only those adverse events severe enough to require a doctor's visit within 7 days of immunization."  In another study patients were observed for 180 days, but only serious events like "admission to hospital or death" qualified as a reaction - nothing else was recorded. Symptoms of adverse reactions  listed in the FLUAD package insert are almost identical to the Air Force case-definition for Gulf War Syndrome, and include rashes, malaise, fever, myalgia, arthralgia, weakness, sweating and various autoimmune reactions and neurologic disturbances. (6)

"The question is whether scientists working for pharmaceutical companies are intentionally designing studies so as to miss adverse reactions that inconvenience their marketing strategy?" asks Matsumoto.  "Chiron's conclusion about squalene's safety are at odds with recent data from studies in both animals and humans."  (6)

Just in from the newslists on February 9, 2005  is an item informing of the European "debut" of a new adjuvant approved for use in a new high-potency hepatitis B vaccine.  Fendrix, the new enhanced hepB vaccine is being launched by pharma giant GlaxoSmithKline for use in people with poor immune responses (like dialysis patients) and those at high risk for developing hepatitis B.  It is formulated with a new adjuvant that can "significantly improve the effectiveness of immunizations."  AS04, the 'proprietary' adjuvant based on MPL, originally developed by U.S. company Corixa, "increases the immune potency of the new vaccine,  allowing two dose administration rather than three. It has been shown clinically to be more effective than alum, the most widely used adjuvant in vaccines."  (12)

So what exactly is this new high potency adjuvant?  We're told by the press release that MPL (AS04),  is a "derivative of the lipid A molecule found in Gram-negative bacteria, is extracted from bacterial cell walls and is one of the most potent regulators of the immune response, used by the body to alert itself to bacterial infections."(12)  Full name of the lipid is monophosphoryl lipid A (MPL)

This news should put everyone on high alert because guess what? Lipids are oils/fatty acids and according to Matsumoto, MPL is identified in declassified documents as one of two squalene emulsions used in the Army's new "recombinant protective antigen anthrax vaccine (rPA)  which the FDA, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Department of Defense fast-tracked into clinical trials in1998. The other squalene adjuvant they used was Chiron's MF59. (6)

It appears that Fendrix is only the first of a whole new generation of "enhanced potency" vaccines coming down the pipeline using the new high potency lipid adjuvant, MPL.  "The adjuvant is also being used in a number of GSK's developmental vaccines, including one that could be the first effective vaccine for malaria", says the article.  MPL (AS04) adjuvant is also a component of GSK Bio's genital herpes vaccine, as well as a component in their cervical cancer vaccine and a new tuberculosis vaccine." (12)

In the unraveling of the squalene story, we find that a squalene emulsion first known as Triple Mix (based on Freund's adjuvant) was later given the commercial name "Ribi".  Triple Mix (renamed Ribi) was tested by Dutch scientists on rabbits who found it caused "severe effects the largest number and most severe lesions when compared with the other adjuvants."(6) Then in June 1999,  Ribi ImmunoChem its manufacturer was acquired by Corixa Corporation for $56.3 million, who presumably also own the Ribi formulation. Whether MPL(AS04) is a formula related to Ribi is undoubtedly "proprietary" information, but from Matsumoto's reseasrch, we know they are all squalene based.  And it doesn't end there.  MPL, Corixa's multi-million dollar baby,  is slated for inclusion not only in the "enhanced potency" vaccines already mentioned, but will also be a strategic component of new allergy and autoimmune vaccines in development. (13)

From their inception, mass vaccinations have acted as a biological weapon, undermining health, manipulating and crippling the immune system, and instigating cycles of new and debilitating diseases. Monopoly medicine's solution?  Inject us with more powerful, genetically engineered high potency vaccines. Never mind they are seeding us with "nano-bombs" that will further attack our already compromised immune systems.

The concept of stimulating a hyperactive immune response by using oil-based adjuvants has clearly backfired since we now know that the stronger the antigenic response, the more damaging the adjuvant itself is to the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system. The precedent for mass medical experimentation via an ever increasing recommended vaccine schedule has been set. We can now predict the grim future of mankind: an epidemic of neurological disorders and autoimmune diseases never before imagined.

Notes &  Resources
Adjuvants listed by Scheibner: "Today the most common adjuvants for human use are aluminum hydroxide, aluminum phosphate and calcium phosphate. However, there are a number of other adjuvants based on oil emulsions, products from bacteria (their synthetic derivatives as well as liposomes) or gram-negative bacteria, endotoxins, cholesterol, fatty acids, aliphatic amines, paraffinic and vegetable oils. Recently, monophosphoryl lipid A, ISCOMs with Quil-A, and Syntex adjuvant formulations (SAFs) containing the threonyl derivative or muramyl dipeptide have been under consideration for use in human vaccines

*Definition of Antigen (Scheibner): "Micro-organisms, either bacteria or viruses, thought to be causing certain infectious diseases and which the vaccine is supposed to prevent. These are whole-cell proteins or just the broken-cell protein envelopes, and are called antigens"

Vaccines Cause Cancer, Autism and Other Deadly Diseases

 According to a recent AP press release "A measles outbreak that originated at Disneyland has grown to 87 cases". Apparently it is spreading slowly around the country and the media is blowing it up as if a major epidemic is at hand. This is sheer nonsense, especially as the older generation is well aware that measles is a mild childhood disease. Yet the media scare campaign helps promote mandatory vaccinations, thus increasing Big Pharma profits.

A related article from reports "Zero US Measles Deaths in 10 Years, but Over 100 Measles Vaccine Deaths". Clearly, it is the vaccinated who are taking the greater risk.

Measles is now a hot topic across the nation, promoted by the media and Medical Cartel, calling for mandatory vaccinations while pitting pro-vaccers against anti-vaccers. This is typical 'divide and conquer' strategy carried out by the Ruling Elite in all matters from politics to wars to medicine, in which they are deeply involved.

Corrupt Medical System

"It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine." -Marcia Angell, MD ("Drug Companies and Doctors: A story of Corruption." NY Review of Books, Jan. 15, 2009.) ...

How Vaccines Harm Child Brain Development - Dr. Russell Blaylock
"Anyone analyzing the 'vaccine safety studies' done by vaccine makers and vaccine proponents can see that they were purposely designed to show safety by omitting people in the study who truly reflected the population being vaccinated and who were, by all standards of science, at risk of harm by the vaccines.

They do studies that use as placebo controls people injected with a vaccine adjuvant. Placebos are supposed to be completely inert. The evidence shows that the greatest danger from vaccines is from the vaccine adjuvant'so, how can they use adjuvant-injected people as controls? Yet, all of their studies used such vaccinated controls?this is blatantly manipulated, and they know it.

The studies that are quoted endlessly by these elite members of academia and government agencies and used to close the door on the vaccine connection to neurodevelopmental problems are purposefully designed so as to suggest no link between vaccines and any complication.

This falsified research is protected by academia, the media, and government agencies. Yet, they have the audacity to stand in judgment of [Dr. Andrew] Wakefield. This is not to say that Wakefield should be free of scrutiny?all researchers should be carefully scrutinized for bias." -- Russell Blaylock, MD (Neurosurgeon)...

Vaccines, Neurodevelopment and Autism Spectrum Disorders
by Russell L. Blaylock, M.D.


In 1976, children received 10 vaccines before attending school. Today they will receive over 36 injections. The American Academy of Pediatrics and the Center for Disease Control assured parents that it was safe to not only give these vaccines, but that they could be given at one time with complete safety. Is this true? Or are we being lied to on a grand scale?

The medical establishment has created a set of terms, which they use constantly to boost their egos and firm up their authority as the unique holders of medical wisdom?the mantra is 'evidence-based medicine', as if everything outside their anointing touch is bogus and suspect. A careful examination of many of the accepted treatments reveals that most have little or no scientific 'evidence-based' data to support it. One often repeated study found that almost 80% of medical practice had no scientific backing.

This is not to say that medical practice should be purely based on pure and applied science, as understood in the fields of physics and chemistry. Medicine, as pointed out by many of the great men of medicine, is an art. For a discussion on the proper role of medicine I refer the reader to my paper titled 'regimentation in Medicine and the Death of Creativity.

Most men of medicine recognize that some things are obvious without a placebo controlled, double-blind, randomized study. For example, there has never been such a study to see if smashing your finger with a hammer will be painful, but we accept it without such pristine evidence. The same is true with removing brain tumors or sewing up severe lacerations.

I find it interesting that there exist an incredible double standard when it comes to our evidence versus theirs. The proponents of vaccination safety can just say they are safe, without any supporting evidence what-so-ever, and it is to be accepted without question. They can announce that mercury is not only safe, but that it seems to actually increase the IQ, and we are to accept it. They can proclaim thimerosal safe to use in vaccines without their having ever been a single study on its safety in over 60 years of use, and we are to accept it.

Yet, let me, or anyone else, suggest that excessive vaccination can increase the risk of not only autism, but also schizophrenia and neurodegenerative diseases, and they will scream like banshees 'Where is the evidence' Where is the evidence? When we produce study after study, they always proclaim them to be insufficient evidence or unacceptable studies. More often than not, they just completely ignore the evidence. This is despite the fact that we produce dozens or even hundreds of studies that not only demonstrate the link clinically and scientifically, but also clearly show the mechanism by which the damage is being done -- even on a molecular level. These include cell culture studies, mixed cell cultures, organotypic tissue studies, in vivo animal studies using multiple species and even human studies. To the defenders of vaccine safety-our evidence is never sufficient and, if we face reality -- never will be...

CDC Chief Admits that Vaccines Trigger Autism

"it's the lowest point in my career, that I went along with that paper." -- CDC Whistleblower William Thompson, PhD
(Truthstream Media) Shocking revelations about alleged CDC misconduct in a study investigating the link between autism and vaccines has been made even worse by an active campaign to censor and silence the issue in the media.
A CDC whistleblower involved in a pivotal study defending official assurances of vaccine safety broke his silence to expose how the study he was involved in massaged the data to cover-up a 340% increase in autism risk for African American children under age three who received the MMR vaccine. William W. Thompson, PhD. was escorted out of CDC headquarters a few days ago, and presumably fired from his position, after being identified as the whistleblower.
For his part, Thompson told the Autism Media Channel, who released a video on his revelations, that he was tired of lying...

Senator Robert Kennedy on the Vaccine Autism Coverup Vaccine

Vaccines are not tested in combination - Fox News
For years parents have been complaining that vaccines are given in combination with other vaccines, even five or six at a time, and that there is no safety testing to show what this does to children. Vaccines are tested one at a time, but the government claims recommends them in combination with out having any knowledge of what they do together?
A vaccine contains enough adjuvant (immune system stimulant) to produce an an adequate immune response from a typical person. What happens when we give five shots at once, all containing adjuvants? To someone who is predisposed to autoimmunity or already has an autoimmune reaction going on in their body?

Brain Damage/Death from Vaccines is NOT Rare

Dr Suzanne Humphries, MD wrote: "Another 'mysterious' flu death. Well... mysterious to conventional doctors and media that is. Vaccinated for flu, gets sick (with type A and B flu, both of which are in the toxic vaccine), is given ibuprofen (a usual prelude to these types of deaths-- as in shoot the attack dog), then given 'IV' in hospital (yes antibiotics would be there, which are pro-viral folks in case you don't know). Then she dies.

All totally avoidable; flu shots don't work, well established in conventional medical literature, ibuprofen paralyzes the immune system and stops the life saving fever, and then going to the hospital that only knows its antibiotics and IV and nothing about sodium ascorbate.

As Dr Fred Klenner said "Some physicians would stand by and see their patient die rather than use ascorbic acid because in their finite minds it exists only as a vitamin." Here is proof that his words are so true."

Is the Vaccine Campaign Beneficial? 
A recent study in Switzerland by Andreas Bachmair, surveying the parents of 15000 children. (Results2007) showed that unvaccinated children are far less affected by common illnesses than vaccinated children.  His study is ongoing and can be found here:  along with results from a German study

No comparison of vaccinated and unvaccinated children has ever been conducted by the CDC. While this has been requested time and time again, the CDC coffers do not seem to have funding available for such a study, nor have they deemed such a study 'ethical.'

We know that over $3 billion have been awarded to victims of vaccine injuries in the United States since 1986, when Congress created the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP), relieving pharmaceutical companies of all liability.  These awards come from a tax imposed on each and every vaccine given, in other words, from taxpayers. Bailey Banks (2007) was found to have acute disseminated encephalomyelitis caused by vaccines. And in 2010 Hannah Poling was awarded $1.5 million plus $500,000 annually for continued care for her vaccine injury. (9)... (Excerpt: full article is at link above)

3 Year Old Has Half of Her Brain Removed to Stop Constant Seizures After MMR Vaccination.
Roz Abbot

Our daughter, Roz, was born a happy, healthy little girl on June 17, 2010. She developed just like all children her age and hit her milestones on or before the target age. My husband and I decided to do vaccines one at a time on a delayed schedule after our first family doctor gave her Pediarix (6 in 1) vaccine. At the age of one, we began with her DTaP vaccinations and spread them out over a period of time. At her two-year checkup, we decided to begin MMR vaccinations.

On June 12, 2012, Roz was given the MMR vaccine. She had the normal fussy period, as she did with the DTaP, but after a week, she began to seem a little off, not as responsive, and she continued to be fussy. She began to run a low-grade fever on June 27. On June 28, my husband noticed she wasn't moving and was in a staring state, unresponsive. We immediately rushed her to the ER. After 30 minutes, the doctor confirmed she was having a seizure and had a fever of 101.1. They ran a series of tests and found nothing in the ways of infection, virus or bacteria. The doctors told us that she had had a febrile seizure. They told us not to worry because febrile seizures are common in children. Read story

Gianna Wehrkamp, 2 (above), was vaccinated for flu, got the flu, and was given Tamiflu, and died within 24 hours. This is a disturbing, but growing trend.
When children vaccinated for the flu or other disease then get the disease, they are often administered another pharmaceutical product such as Tamiflu, Tylenol, Ibuprofen or Vancomycin. When they die shortly after administration of those drugs, the deaths are always attributed to the flu, never the drug interactions. And the death is used to create more fear of the disease and calls for more vaccinations.

When doctors say they have seen first hand "horrible deaths from vaccine preventable diseases" the truth is that they have seen children die from medical interventions by doctors. But doctors almost never admit that the medical interventions they administered were the cause of a child's death. So, in addition to the willfull blindness to the damage they are causing, doctors use those child deaths to scare parents into authorizing more vaccines.

Kiera Driscoll, 5 (below), was vaccinated for infuenza A, and then came down with influenza A. She was given steroids and died that same day. Her death was blamed on flu. These are just two of many such "flu" deaths that have been reported across the country in vaccinated children.

An anonymous UK nurse has reported that a large number of perfectly normal, healthy girls have been admitted into psychiatric wards, strapped down, drugged, after a recent HPV vaccination. It's due to an autoimmune condition triggered by the vaccine which attacks the brain, but doctors initially assume they are mentally ill, and possibly a threat to themselves or others. The condition is called anti-NMDA receptor autoimmune encephalitis or "AE" for short, and has also been reported after TDaP vaccination. "Brain on Fire" is how many girls describe the pain. Thanks to one exceptional doctor, author Suzanne Cahalan was able to survive the nightmare and write about it. The official position that "AE" is "rare" is countered by the UK report and that there is already an organization, The AE Alliance, to support families affected by this "disease." See this parental account of a daughter's AE after Cervarix vaccination.
Your pediatrician will not warn you of the true risks of vaccination because they don't want to scare you away from vaccinating, and regular office visits for that purpose. They may actually believe that the "greater good" is being served, even if your child is one of the many who are sacrificed under that misguided rationalization. But, as you listen to each doctor here, you'll get a few more pieces to the puzzle, and gradually, the big picture will emerge. Based on that realiztion, you will have the information you need to make a decision on whether to vaccinate, or to join the growing number of no-longer-vaccinating families who are reporting stunning good health in their unvaccinated children, in comparison to their vaccinated siblings.

The 24 videos on this page serve as an introduction to key issues parents must be aware of before consenting to vaccination. Just as compelling are the first-hand accounts of parents who describe in great detail exactly what happened to their children following vaccination. Only a tiny percentage of these adverse reaction are reported as a vaccine-injury and that under-reporting leads doctors to say it's "rare," even though they may see it in their own practice several times a week. This turning-a-blind-eye on the part of doctors is encouraged by hospital administrators so that HMO financial incentives for high vaccination rates will continue to flow.

Tens of thousands of parents have reported exactly the same sequence of events: My child was fine --perfectly healthy and meeting all developmental milestones-- until vaccinations, after which in a matter of hours, or days, they had severe medical issues and/or began a regression into an autistic state, or simply stopped breathing and died. In the Parents Speak Out section of this site, there are dozens of such accounts as well as links to a dozen more websites which in all, contain thousands of reports; all in great detail. Some doctors say "coincidence," but after hearing a number of these first-hand accounts, you'll quickly see that the deaths following vaccination are not "coincidence" and to suggest so is an insult to one's intelligence.

Gardasil: The Decision We Will Always Regret
By all accounts, our daughter was normal before receiving the HPV vaccine...
We recently consulted Katie's LLMD and also her Primary Care Physician, who reviewed Katie's vaccine log and extensive medical records.  Both agree that Katie's immune system was injured by the Gardasil vaccine and that it was the catalyst to her cascading health problems and chronic illness.  Katie's LLMD is now treating her for a vaccine injury in addition to treating multiple tick-borne diseases, other infections/viruses and autoimmune thyroid disease.
At this point, we are totally outside our insurance company and most everything is out-of-pocket.  The overall expense of Katie's illness greatly outpaces our income so many expenses are put on credit cards.  But the biggest cost by far is the toll that the Gardasil vaccine has taken on our daughter's health and well-being.  We wonder if she will ever be able to reclaim her health and get back to living a normal life free of pain.
We deeply regret consenting to the Gardasil vaccine.  We had no idea of the severe side effects some experience post vaccine.  Every day, we wish we had been more informed.  Parents beware of blindly following your doctor's recommended vaccine schedule.  Do not rely or expect your doctor to know everything.  You must do your own research and ask plenty of questions.  Our family found out the hard way that it is possible for a vaccine to have lasting and devastating effects...

Vaccine Culture War Myths

"Even if you and your children have willingly received every government recommended vaccine today, if non-medical exemptions are removed from U.S. vaccine laws, you will have no choice if you decide you don't want to use every new liability-free vaccine that government recommends tomorrow. This Vaccine Culture War is about a lot more than vaccination. Because if the State can tag, track down and force you against your will to be injected with biologicals of known and unknown toxicity today, then there will be no limit on which other freedoms the State can take away in the name of the greater good tomorrow." - Barbara Loe Fisher

* VACCINE CULTURE WAR MYTH 1: Most medical doctors say that vaccines do not cause injury or death, so it must be true.

Doctors who say vaccines are safe for everyone and do not cause injury and death are either uninformed, in denial or lying. Since the first vaccine for smallpox, doctors have known and it has been well documented that brain inflammation, permanent brain damage and death have always been among most serious complications of vaccination. 1 2

Just like any other pharmaceutical product, vaccines carry a risk of injury or death. These risks can be greater for some people with genetic, biological and environmental risk factors that doctors do not understand or cannot predict. 3

Congress, U.S. Supreme Court Say Vaccines Are 'Unavoidably Unsafe'

Knowing this, Congress in 1986 4 and the U.S. Supreme Court in 2011 5 declared vaccines to be 'unavoidably unsafe' and shielded drug companies from all product liability. 6 If you or your child are injured or die after vaccination, you cannot hold the drug company that makes and profits from the vaccine or anyone who regulates, promotes, administers or mandates the vaccine accountable in a civil court of law in front of a jury of your peers.

Liability for Seat Belt Manufacturers - NOT for Vaccine Manufacturers

Seat belt manufacturers have product liability 7 but vaccine manufacturers do not. Doctors can be sued for malpractice except when they administer vaccinations that injure or kill a person.

Vaccines are the only product government mandates and completely indemnifies.

The federal government has paid $3 billion dollars in compensation to victims of vaccine injury and death under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986. 8

* VACCINE CULTURE WAR MYTH 2: People who question vaccine safety are ignorant and do not understand the science.

Just the opposite is true. Most people who question vaccine safety are very intelligent and understand the difference between good science and bad science. 9 10 11

Studies reveal that mothers and fathers with college or post-graduate degrees are the ones who most often question the safety of vaccines. 12 13 14 They are wondering whether government policy directing pediatricians to give children three times as many vaccinations as children got 30 years ago 15 is safe, effective and necessary.

Big Knowledge Gaps in Vaccine Safety Science

If growing concerns among parents about vaccination was simply due to ignorance, two decades of reports published by the Institute of Medicine would not have found large knowledge gaps in vaccine safety science. 16 For example, there are fewer than 40 published studies evaluating the safety of the federally recommended child vaccine schedule for infants and children under age six. 17

* VACCINE CULTURE WAR MYTH NUMBER 3: People who do not vaccinate are selfish and don't care about the public health.

While we are all born equal with equal rights under the law, we are not born all the same. Each one of us is born with different genes and a unique microbiome  influenced by epigenetics 18 that affects how we respond to diseases 19 20 and pharmaceutical products like vaccines. 21 22

Many Americans no longer vaccinate today because the risks of vaccination turned out to be 100 percent for them, their children or other family members. They have good reason to believe that the genes they were born with make them more susceptible to vaccine harm. 23 24 25 26 27

Vaccine Vulnerable Families Can't Find Doctors to Write Medical Exemptions

But often these former vaccinators cannot find a doctor to write a medical exemption because almost no health condition qualifies for a medical exemption to vaccination anymore. 28 Unless you are dying of cancer and on chemotherapy, have had a recent organ transplant or have the most severe combined immune deficiency, most doctors will not grant you a medical vaccine exemption. 29

Non-medical vaccine exemptions are the only way vaccine vulnerable families  can protect their lives.

Some Healthy Americans Choosing Different Path to Health

Some Americans use fewer vaccines or remain unvaccinated because they have chosen a different path to health. They focus on boosting immune function with good nutrition, exercise, avoiding environmental toxins and using holistic health alternatives that do not rely on heavy use of pharmaceutical products. 30 31 32 33 They are contributing significantly to the public health because they and their children are very healthy.

It is not selfish to want to make informed choices about how to stay healthy. It is not selfish to protect yourself and your children from harm, especially if you believe your family is more susceptible to vaccine injury. If everyone protects their own health and the health of their children, the public health will be protected.

* VACCINE CULTURE WAR MYTH 4: Science trumps religious beliefs so religious exemptions to vaccination should be eliminated.

The attack on Americans with religious or spiritual beliefs is central to the political agenda driving this cultural war. 34 35 36 Fellow citizens, who do not believe there is a God, 37 38 39 40 are demanding that those who have faith in God be required to place the same faith in science and doctors. 41

 There is a big difference between fallible human beings and God, but some doctors do not understand this difference.

Vaccine Developer Ridicules Religious Belief, Quotes Scripture

One prominent pediatrician vaccine developer, 42 who insists that babies can safely be given 10,000 vaccines on the same day, 43 has publicly ridiculed religious beliefs 44 45 46 but now is hypocritically quoting holy scripture 47 and comparing Disneyland to the 'Garden of Eden.' 48 Invoking the name of Jesus, he is trying to shame Christian parents refusing to obey his orders to give their children every government recommended vaccine, including the one he created 49 that has made him a very rich man. 50 51 52

Mothers Responsible for the Health of Their Children

I remember many years ago when a public health doctor promoting the 'No Shots, No School' campaign in America suggested I was 'selfish' for declining to give my two youngest children pertussis vaccine even though my oldest son was DPT vaccine injured. Implicit was the suggestion that I had no right to protect my own children's health if it conflicted with what doctors believe protects the public health.

I looked him straight in the eyes and said 'Doctor, whether or not I put my child's life on the line for you and your vaccine is between me and my God and not between me and you.'

As mothers, we carry our babies inside us for nine months, we give birth, we love them more than we thought we could ever love anyone and we nurture them throughout childhood so they can grow up to be productive adult members of society. We are responsible for their health and we are the ones who care for them when they become sick and unable to care for themselves for any reason, and we are the ones who weep at their graves if they die before we do.

Do Not Let Anyone Violate Your Religious, Conscientious Beliefs

You do not have to belong to an organized religion or state recognized church to hold sincere religious or spiritual beliefs about health and vaccination. 53  54 55   As a mother or father, you have the God given natural right to use the brain and gut instincts God gave you to consider the evidence, examine your conscience, pray for guidance and exercise the human right to informed consent to medical risk-taking on behalf of your minor child. Do not let a doctor, government employee or politician take that God given right away from you.

It is a violation of religious freedom to force vaccination when you hold religious or spiritual beliefs opposing use of one or more vaccines and it is a violation of the human spirit to force you to disobey the certain judgment of your conscience.

* VACCINE CULTURE WAR MYTH 5: It is ethical for government to sacrifice the few for the many.

Based on hedonism 56 and a mathematical equation, this philosophy is called utilitarianism 57 58and comes from the word 'utility.' 59 The utilitarian rationale was created as a guide for legislators making public policy by an 18th century British social reformer Jeremy Bentham, 60 61 whose mummified head is being preserved by the University College London, where a wax version is on public display. 62 In 1905, the U.S. Supreme Court used Bentham's utilitarian rationale to rule in Jacobsen v. Massachusetts that state legislatures had the power to enact mandatory smallpox vaccination laws. 63

American Eugenicists, U.S. Supreme Court Embraces Utilitarianism

American eugenicists and social reformers embraced utilitarianism in the early 20th century. 64 65 They argued that government has the legal right to discriminate against a minority of citizens judged to be genetically defective or a threat to the health and welfare of society.  In 1923, U.S. Supreme Court justice Oliver Wendall Holmes 66 gave the green light to the state of Virginia to forcibly sterilize a young women, Carrie Buck, because doctors judged her to be mentally retarded just like her daughter and mother.

Coldly, Holmes proclaimed: 'three generations of imbeciles are enough' and said 'The principle that sustains compulsory vaccination is broad enough to cover cutting the fallopian tubes.' 67

It turns out Carrie Buck was not mentally retarded and neither was her daughter or mother. 68

Utilitarianism Pseudo-Ethic In Its Most Extreme Form

Doctors and public health officials in the Third Reich implemented utilitarianism in its most extreme form to justify conducting horrific scientific experiments on captive people. 69 70 The Nuremberg Tribunal justices presiding over The Doctors Trial after World War II declared utilitarianism to be a pseudo ethic. They issued the Nuremberg Code outlining the informed consent principle, 71 72 which has guided research on humans and the ethical practice of medicine ever since. 73 74 75

Forced Vaccination Laws Sacrifice the Genetically Vulnerable

The Institute of Medicine has confirmed that some individuals have known and unknown genetic risk factors that make them more susceptible to vaccine injury and death. 76 This means forced vaccination laws that fail to include flexible medical and non-medical exemptions become a utilitarian, de facto selection of the genetically vulnerable for sacrifice. 77

Is America really going to walk down that road? Are we going to punish citizens for the genes they were born with in the name of the public health?

Are we going to slide down the slippery slope of utilitarianism and ignore the profound ethical and legal questions that remain: Who gets to decide what protects the public health? Which individuals should be sacrificed? And how many is too many?

Another government reporting agency, The National Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), reports 108 children died from the measles vaccine during a ten year period. But that may be a fraction of the real number because MDs often do not report vaccine injuries.
Death certificates, usually filled out by MDs, very rarely mention vaccination as the cause of death. They may write encephalitis or brain inflammation rather than vaccination even though vaccines can cause brain inflammation) on the death certificate. We don't know the real number of vaccine injuries and deaths. But they are most likely much greater than what VAERS reports due to underreporting...

Smallpox Vaccine: Origins of Vaccine Madness
Jennifer Craig, BSN, MA, Ph.D
Somewhere in medical education the idea that smallpox was eradicated by a vaccine took hold in students' heads and has remained there ever since. Would that more accurate information endure with such persistence? Even physicians who have explored vaccination continue to believe that the injection of pus from a cowpox sore prevented smallpox. For example, Cave and Mitchell, in What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Children's Vaccinations, on page 10, say, 'A more scientific approach was used in the late eighteenth century when Edward Jenner, who discovered that inoculating people with the animal disease cowpox made people immune to the deadly human disease smallpox. This was an interesting concept, and fortunately for Jenner it helped save lives --ť1 Did they ever ask themselves how the inoculation of pus from a diseased animal could possibly prevent, rather than create, a disease in humans? This article explores the history of smallpox vaccination...

Vaccination: A Mythical History

Smoke, Mirrors, and the 'Disappearance' Of Polio

A Shot Never Worth Taking: The Flu Vaccine ~ by Kelly Brogan, MD

Deep into my 6th year of researching and investigating the damning science that condemns vaccine efficacy and safety -- yes, all of them -- I am beginning to turn my attention more to the societal memes and the individual belief systems that protect and perpetuate tragically flawed and unacceptably dangerous collective behaviors.

The information is OUT THERE, brilliant scientists, physicians, and researchers without financial ties and agendas have weighed in and presented their concerns about vaccine safety and efficacy, however, the average citizen resists and clings to a hyper-simplified, seemingly 'safe? stance.
'Well, I'm not against vaccines, I mean, they've done a lot. I'm sure there are some risks, but they're extremely rare.'

I understand, now, that, my collection of PubMed articles substantiating concerns about inefficacy, neurological, autoimmune, and fatal risks of these poorly conceived and anachronistically relevant immune modulators is not meaningful to someone who is not interested. The questions raised by this information are not provocative to someone who needs, above all, to believe that the government, the CDC, and doctors mean well, are doing their due diligence, and that they are holding themselves to a basic standard of ethical delivery of healthcare. They are not meaningful to someone who needs to outsource their power.

Instead of debating the science, what it may take to change to bring awareness to this egregious misuse of medical authority is, one of two, non-scientific, anecdotal exposures:

    1.They see it doesn't work, and may even cause illness
    I have several pediatricians as patients. Unprovoked, all of these women have confessed to me that they have observed increased virulence in their vaccinated populations. It is this clinical experience that has given them pause about the heavy-handed mandate coming down from the CDC.
   "Oh!" I say, "Have you read the studies that suggest increased risk of infection in the vaccinated population? There's THAT ONE where they actually used a saline placebo in 115 children and found that those vaccinated had a 4.4 times increased rate of non-flu infection? Or how about that CANADIAN ONE where they looked at 4 observational studies and found that 2008-2009 H1N1 vaccination was associated with a1.4 to 2.5 increased risk of actually contracting said virus?"

    Only after they have a personal template within which to fit the science affirming their observations, do they have room to hear it. But what of all of the children they have brought this ineffective and dangerous intervention to?

    2.They know someone harmed
    It is basic human psychology that what is out over there is irrelevant at best, and threatening at worst. What is near and familiar is what is true. Few of us seek to bridge gaps between what we are surrounded by and what may be out there to learn. The difficulty of appreciating the scale of harm brought to the population by vaccination practice is related to the insidious nature of immune and neurologic insult.

    The CDC can report, as they do, that brain inflammation and death are known side effects of every vaccine, but most do not appreciate what brain inflammation looks like. That this can look like ADHD, autism, learning delay, and that autoimmune disorders can take years to manifest. Tracing the thread back to the vaccine exposure can only be done with studies that assess vaccinated versus unvaccinated populations. These have not been done.

    Tragically, we all know, now, of someone who has died from the flu vaccine, just this past week. CHANDLER WEBB, a healthy 19 year old, was given a 'routine' and 'recommended? flu vaccine at his physical, one day before he became violently ill, and one month before he died. He died from vaccine-induced encephalitis, a known risk of this intervention. In addition to feeling remorse for the pain that this family is experiencing, I feel rage for what I believe to be manslaughter. This is a medical intervention, delivered without any regard for its objectively determined lack of efficacy, and its potential to maim and kill healthy adults.

    The propaganda surrounding this CDC and government-endorsed practice is so thick that doctors treating this young man were blind to even the most obvious of causative insults. If doctors cannot appreciate a documented adverse event that occurs within 24 hours, you cannot expect the system to acknowledge more complex disturbances to the immune system and neuorologic development that will land you and your loved ones on medications and in therapies for life.

    And, remember, that this family cannot sue the physician who pushed the needle or the pharmaceutical company who created the lethal product.

I think about the Cliff's Notes version, a distillation of why the flu vaccine is evidence that our government and regulatory bodies have forgotten us, and are following an objective that may leave you lying dead on the side of the road. I know that few of you will read the papers that I have read, attend lectures, seminars, and dialogue with concerned experts. If nothing else, digest these important points, and then wait until this issue gets close enough to you to change your mind on it?hopefully before it's too late.

'It's not indicated: I'm sure you don't know a single person who has died of the flu, and if you think you do, I can almost guarantee you that the diagnosis was not confirmed in a way that ruled out the 150-200 infectious pathogens that cause flu-like syndromes, none of which would be 'covered' by the vaccine. Despite the astronomical figures the CDC flashes before us of 'flu deaths', there were 18 (yes, 1-8) confirmed in 2001, for example. Access to these figures is suspiciously concealed, but in the end, forget the stats, and use some common sense to see the fear mongering and sales marketing for what it is.

'It doesn't work: The Cochrane Database' -- an objective, gold-standard assessment of available evidence has plainly stated, in TWO STUDIES, that there is no data to support efficacy in children under two, and in adults. Even the former Chief Vaccine Officer at the FDA states: 'there is no evidence that any influenza vaccine thus far developed is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza.' Liking the idea of being protected from the flu does not equate to being protected from the flu. That's essentially what your vaccine-promoting doctor (or pharmacist) is engaging in -- promoting an idea.

'should there ever be a medical intervention appropriate for everyone'
It's being pushed on demographics where it is known to be ineffective, or is unstudied and likely unsafe including children, adults, elderly, and pregnant women as reviewed on THIS WEB SITE and GREENMEDINFO. I write about how this offends my sensibilities as a perinatal physician HERE.

'We just don't know what we are doing: The grave possibility of undetectable viral proteins in the chick embryos used to culture vaccines is just an example of how the immune roulette of vaccine development and rampant implementation has resulted in death and lasting injury. C. jejeuni contamination, for example, IS THEORIZED TO PLAY A ROLE in documented risk of Guillain-Barre paralysis after flu vaccine. Producing antibody response to virus and associated toxic preservatives (and adjuvants added to heighten immune response) is not immunity. We know that now.

As those of us who shake our heads in pain and frustration watching the sheep get herded off the cliff, we refrain: these agents cannot be considered 'safe and effective' and also 'unavoidably unsafe' as the government agencies would have us accept. They are avoidably unsafe, in fact, when you don't use them as part of your healthcare.

50 Things Your Doctor Failed To Tell You about Vaccines

'All the available evidence shows that the decline of the infectious diseases was due (not to the vaccines but) to social factors, hygiene, sanitation, housing, nutrition, etc.'


Smallpox would have disappeared around 1870 if Jenner's cronies had not persuaded Parliament to force the smallpox vaccine onto children in 1867, causing the largest epidemic of smallpox ever with a peak of 42,000 deaths in 1872. To test the effectiveness of natural immunity versus vaccination, the non-vaccinated Kingston Clinic staff challenged six vaccinated doctors to join them, in 1936, in a smallpox isolation unit. The doctors had the very good sense not to accept the offer.

The degree of AIDS incidence in Brazil, Haiti, Burundi, Rwanda, Tanzania, Zaire Zambia, Uganda and Malawi coincides with the degree of smallpox vaccination intensity.


American health authorities are considering a complete change of policy in the face of strong evidence that all cases of polio are caused by the polio vaccine. Bernard Reis, English professor at Cornell University and an 'energetic, athletic achiever' was paralyzed by polio a month after his baby was, by law, polio-vaccinated.

1.1 million dollars damages were awarded to Kay McNeary after she was crippled by polio alter changing her baby's nappy.

Millions of children, in the fifties and sixties, were given the Salk vaccine contaminated with the cancer-causing virus SV40. Dr F Klinner stated, 'Many here voice a silent view that the Salk and Sabin vaccines, being made of monkey tissues, have been directly responsible for the major increase of leukemia in this country.'

The Lancet reported an outbreak of paralytic polio in Oman in fully vaccinated children. The vaccine lobby said what was needed was an increase of the vaccine dose at birth, 6, 10 and 14 weeks, and at times of other vaccines being given.


The World's largest vaccine trial, in Southern India, of the BCG vaccine, resulted in more TB in the vaccinated group than in the control group.


The whooping cough vaccine is made from the mucus of infected children, mixed with formaldehyde, aluminum and mercury. In a recent study of 540 Dutch babies, 512 had adverse reactions to the DPT vaccines. Thirty-thousand cases of diphtheria have occurred in recent years, in the UK, amongst diphtheria vaccinated children.

A University of California study showed that 1,000 SIDS (cot deaths) per year are caused by the DPT shots. Dr Robert Mendelsohn, pediatrician, said, 'nearly 10,000 SIDS each year' (in the USA) -- are related to the vaccines routinely given to children.'

In 1986 Dr Michael Weiner PhD. stated, 'More die each year from SIDS than the total number of all AIDS cases since 1981, yet little research money has been allocated to study the possibility of a relationship between these deaths and the DPT vaccine.'


Over a period of four years, in the UK, 66% of all measles cases were in vaccinated children. In a 1986 measles outbreak in Corpus Christi, Texas, 99% of the children had been vaccinated. 26% of children rubella-vaccinated developed arthralgia or arthritis.

(US Science magazine.) Trials on the rubella vaccine, in the USA and Australia, show a failure rate of between 80 and 93%.

Dr Glen Dettman found that one third of rheumatoid arthritis sufferers had live rubella viruses in their joints. The Lancet reported that West German authorities had listed 27 neurological reactions to the mumps vaccine, including meningitis, febrile convulsions and epilepsy. There are 30,000 new cases of epilepsy; 10,000 of which are children, in the UK alone, each year.

Hepatitis B

The hepatitis B vaccine is made from the blood of human beings infected with hepatitis B; ie someone at high risk of developing AIDS. A Lancet study of 1991 showed a 20% hepatitis infection rate in 358 hepatitis-vaccinated Gambian children.


A. Minnesota study showed that the American Hib 'polysaccharide' vaccine increased the risk of Hib-induced meningitis five-fold. The Lancet, August 1991, reported 9 cases of Hib-induced meningitis in vaccinated children.

A study on the least useless Hib vaccine -- the PRP-OMPC -- in Los Angeles found a lowering of antibody response as vaccine dosage increased.


The Post Office dropped influenza vaccine promotion after it failed to show any reduction in absenteeism. The 'Influenza Monitoring and Information Bureau' is funded by the influenza vaccine manufacturers. Six hundred elderly, influenza-vaccinated Birmingham people showed over double the respiratory disease than a similar non- vaccinated group.

Dr Robert Mendelsohn stated that any influenza vaccine could cause Guillain-Barre Syndrome and paralysis. Influenza vaccines are made from material taken from 'flu victims; material then processed with mashed chick embryos, taken from disease-ridden intensive battery sheds. In November 1991, a Chesterfield man died within hours of being injected with the vaccine.


The typhoid vaccine is made from the excrement of typhoid-infected people.


The World Health Organization has finally admitted, after countless cholera jabs, that the vaccine is useless, and has advised that, 'It is not worth having.'

In General

Known and suspected effects of vaccines include, asthma, eczema, increased allergies, encephalitis, cancer, leukemia, cot death, meningitis, lower motor neuron disease, juvenile diabetes, violent behavior, and so on.

American medical historian, Harris Coulter, writing in 'Vaccination, Social Violence and Criminality' states, 'A large proportion of the millions of US children suffering from autism, seizures, mental retardation, hyperactivity, dyslexia and other shoots and branches of the hydra-headed entity called 'developmental disabilities', owe their disorders to one or another of the vaccines against childhood diseases.'

According to Dr R de Long, 'since 1981 we have been immunizing the human population with attenuated (live) viral vaccines en mass. Such unparalleled use. . . may be the reason for the appearance of new diseases.' We now have 20,000 new diseases, and rising.

Vaccine makers, acting through corrupt bureaucrats, politicians and mass media agents, have always been able to pass off their wares after fraudulent animal testing; the human being is the real guinea-pig.

Dr J A Morris, leading US infectious disease expert declared, 'We only hear about the encephalitis and the deaths, but there is an entire spectrum between fever and death, and it's all those things in between that never get reported.' -

Dr R Mendelsohn said, 'There now exists a growing theoretical concern which links immunization to the huge increase, in recent decades, of auto-immune diseases, eg rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, lymphoma and leukemia. 'According to Dr Duperrat, 'vaccination causes, furthermore, an explosion of leukemia.'

A report in the Revue de Pathologie et de Physiologie Clinique, stated, 'The vaccine modifies the terrain of the vaccinated, driving it towards alkaline and oxidized terrain; the terrain of cancer, the fact can no longer be ignored.'

Dr R Moskowitz, writing in the Journal of the American Institute of Homeopaths stated that vaccination could arouse latent, cell- bound, antibody immune viruses, leading, through stress or shock to 'autonomous multiplication of cells, ie. cancer.'

Professor R Simpson, of the American Cancer Society, said that vaccines may cause rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, systemic lupus erythematosus, Parkinson's Disease, and cancer.

All the available evidence shows that the decline of the infectious diseases was due to social factors, hygiene, sanitation, housing, nutrition, etc.

Dr Moskowitz suggests that there are 'fewer greater insults one can offer the immune system of a young child than to introduce, directly into his/her bloodstream, the foreign proteins or live viruses that compose modern Vaccines.'

And finally, if doctor, his receptionist, nurse and the 'health visitor' cannot bully, threaten and arm-twist 90% of mothers on doctor's list into having their offspring permanently damaged with vaccines, doctor will not get his annual bonus -- on top of everything else -- of Ł1,737.

Crucifying the Vaccine Heretics. ~by Roman Bystrianyk (co-author Dissolving Illusions: Disease, Vaccines, and the Forgotten History)
Excerpt (full article at link):
-- Measles was mild by the mid-1900s with an almost 100% decline in deaths by the time the vaccine was introduced.
-- You don't need an antibody response to recover from measles and have lifelong immunity.
-- The immune system is much more complex than a simple antibody = protection story that is often described.
-- Vitamin A and C are key in human immunity and in measles.
-- Large scale epidemics may occur in highly vaccinated populations due to waning immunity.
-- Clinical measles is really MLI (measles-like illness) which is often caused by something other than the measles virus.
-- Measles may have been misdiagnosed for decades making it difficult to even judge the effectiveness of the measles vaccine.
-- Aseptic meningitis (brain inflammation) from the MMR vaccine was seen during a mass immunization campaign.

I've only scratched the surface of all the information that is available in the scientific literature. And there is so much more to the story than can be mentioned here!

Are any of these things discussed in your local doctor's office' Hardly. Only a simple puerile Pavlovian tagline is repeated -- 'vaccines are safe and effective.' What's to discuss? If these things were talked about it would become clear that the history of disease and vaccines, understanding of the immune system, vaccines and how they actually work, and alternatives would be woefully lacking by most giving you a vaccine...

The Greater Harm ~ by Shawn Siegel

Whether vaccines can, and do, cause severe, irreparable damage is not up for debate. The U.S. government's table of recognized vaccine injuries (1) includes anaphylaxis, a severe, whole-body reaction to vaccine ingredients; encephalopathy, brain damage; brachial neuritis, a degree of loss of sensation to the shoulders, arms, hands, and chest, which can be accompanied by chronic pain, lasting years; chronic arthritis; Thrombocytopenic purpura, a loss of blood platelets resulting in 'increased tendency to bleed', an autoimmune disorder caused by the production of antibodies against platelet antigens (2); and:

'Any acute complication or sequela (including death) of an illness, disability, injury, or condition referred to above which illness, disability, injury, or condition arose within the time period prescribed.'

Courtroom Some, but far from all, of the acute complications for which our humble Special Masters have awarded close to $2.8 billion in compensation (3) include: Guillain-Barr Syndrome; radial nerve injury; transverse myelitis; Kleine-Levin Syndrome, a neurological disorder characterized by recurring periods of excessive amounts of sleep and altered behavior; sepsis, a potentially fatal whole-body inflammation; demyelinating condition, which damages the myelin sheath protecting the transmission of signals in neurons -- nerve cells -- resulting in loss of sensation, movement, cognition, or other functions, depending on which nerves are involved; Opsoclonus Myoclonus Syndrome, a neurological disorder that appears to be the result of an autoimmune process involving the nervous system, some of the symptoms of which are unpredictable eye movement and impairment of speech and of comprehension of speech (4); Bilateral Symmetric Diaphragmic Palsy, which affects the nerves that provide both sensory and motor function to the diaphragm, controlling respiration; multiple sclerosis; Bell's palsy; cardiac arrest; and death. (5)

Postmarketing ExperienceThat's only a partial list, taken from the records of one attorney's office, all acknowledged as triggered by the vaccines we're told are safe -- in this case, DTaP, Tdap, MMR, chickenpox and the flu shot, which are given multiple times to our kids, starting at two months (6) -- and it's a virtual catalog from Hell, made even more injurious by the addition of the strict time periods assigned for the various injuries listed in HRSA's table. If vaccine induced brain damage -- encephalopathy -- from any of the pertussis-containing vaccines is reported as having been recognized or discovered more than 72 hours post-vaccination, it will be disallowed for compensation, while from the MMR, it must be 'not less than 5 days and not more than 15 days'. The restrictions are medical nonsense, as though brain damage noted 75 hours after a DTaP, or 4 days after the MMR, or 16 days, could logically be written off the books as vaccine related. More to the point, the victims and their families are then written off; the years of suffering of the injured, of intense effort to rehabilitate and recover, of financial, familial and marital stress that so often accompany the more debilitating vaccine injuries, cast aside, because of an obviously absurd, inexcusably restrictive technicality. Once vaccine injury is recognized, the injured and their families are then dependent on the national Vaccine Injury Compensation Program for financial relief, the only legal avenue open to them in the U.S, but that program, initiated ostensibly as a 'no-fault alternative to the traditional tort system for resolving vaccine injury claims' (7), has been captured by, become a partner to, the industry. The court-claimant relationship, which should be one of mutual respect and understanding, is adversarial. (8)

The discrepancy between the number of reported incidents of serious vaccine injury (9) and the in essence open-ended, unreported reality of that number (10) is onerous; the nature of the constellation of symptoms typically associated with natural, acute, temporary disease versus the nature of the damage we see in the debilitating vaccine induced disorders described above, bizarre. The former speaks to just how extensive, how great, is the harm done; the latter, to how harmful.

Semantic Elimination of Polio EpidemicsThe CDC and the rest of the vaccine cartel are well aware that the actual extent of vaccine damage is a vast unknown. In its own words, VAERS receives reports for 'only a small fraction' of actual adverse events (5), while a relevant estimate once published in JAMA found that number to be only 1%. (11) The great majority of serious vaccine injuries are given labels unrelated to vaccination, in a display of cognitive dissonance on the part of the majority of doctors and nurses involved to rival anything seen in the general population. Denied any and all substantive vaccine information in their medical educations, and unable or unwilling to escape the confines of the resulting tunnel vision, they refuse to investigate, recognize or report what to anyone educated in the subject are obvious vaccine injuries, attributing the bone-chilling cries of the cri encephalique to colic, or the immediate occurrence of extended, foul gastrointestinal problems (12) to a mystery viral infection, or routinely cubbyholing as normal days, sometimes weeks, of fever following on the heels of vaccination, ignoring how questionable may be a procedure ostensibly designed to keep our kids from getting sick, that makes them sick. Even using the most conservative of estimates, we're likely looking at 15,000 deaths caused by vaccines over the last 25 years, and a staggering 200,000 + overall number of serious reactions, including life-threatening reactions, permanent disabilities, hospitalizations and required trips to the emergency room.

A dispassionate, reflective look at the act of vaccination reveals a procedure outside the auspices of the elegant, unreproducible, full body immune system bequeathed each of us by Mother Nature -- a terribly unnatural act in its route of introduction, greatly exacerbated by the insane list of toxic ingredients. (13) Circumventing a variety of circulatory system safeguards, it opens us up, for starters, to the possibility of a flow of nuerotoxins through the blood brain barrier. Moreover, due to the chemicals triggered by the introduction of toxins and the resulting inflammatory response, vaccines can change the viscosity of the blood, resulting in impeded capillary flow (14)(15)(16)(17), leading to ischemia -- oxygen deprivation -- and degradation of the function of any vital organs with tissues so affected. The resulting, specific vaccine injury in each individual is unpredictable, a function of where that compromise takes place -- which organs are damaged.

The symptoms of measles are typically moderate -- cough, runny nose, sore throat, fever and a red, blotchy skin rash, generally lasting less than a week. The inheritance is a robust, typically lifelong, natural immunity. High up in the list of reactions to the MMR vaccine, meanwhile, are convulsions, autism, speech disorders and brain damage, and it kills some kids. (9) Hepatitis B can be more severe, but is treatable, and the primary recognized routes of exposure have no relevance whatsoever to a newborn, with the possible exception of infection in the mother -- and the simple fact that newborns typically have no open wounds makes even that route of transmission uncertain. The Hep B vaccine, meanwhile, is administered within hours of birth to most new babies, at only eight weeks of age to virtually all the others, and twice more to all, before the age of eighteen months (6), depositing the contained yeast protein and aluminum, a known neurotoxin, into the capillary beds of the muscles, from which they're absorbed into the bloodstream. Aluminum is found in the brains of Alzheimer's patients (18) and is otherwise associated with chronic cognitive dysfunction (19), and aluminum salt adjuvants -- fibrous crystals, like fiberglass -- will first hesitate at the injection site, where they excite an unnatural, agitated immune response, but can remain as an aggregation sometimes for years. The yeast protein is undigested, and its presence -- the presence of any food protein, and vaccines contain several -- in the circulatory system can trigger allergy and chronic ailments (20), and, along with the presence of the aluminum, can thicken the blood, impeding capillary flow. (21) The 'side effects' of the Hep B vaccine include convulsions, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, SIDS, hepatitis, asthma, autism, speech disorder, diabetes and death.

These aren't side effects at all. They're the to be expected effects of flaunting the function of a highly evolved, whole body immune system, and the tradeoff of the typical symptoms of acute infectious diseases for the chronic, profound insult of serious vaccine damage is macabre. Epidemics of speech and learning disorders, of autism, of debilitating autoimmune disorders like asthma, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and allergies, roam the nation, affecting at least one in six children (22)(23), and that number continues to grow. Much of that chronic physical discomfort and emotional and intellectual compromise is simply the less severe runoff from the profound nature of vaccine insult. A child plagued by constant low grade bowel problems, or the distraction of varying degrees of brain damage, or simply the lack of sleep resulting from the apnea that can follow vaccination, can hardly be expected to concentrate, learn, behave or, in some cases, develop normally.

The culpability of the cartel runs deep, and constant. Despite repeated requests to implement a comparative study of the health outcomes of the unvaccinated vs the vaccinated, and the existence of independently conducted research showing markedly better overall health in the unvaccinated (24)(25)(26), our supposed authorities steadfastly refuse to act, or even respond to soliciting organizations, because they simply want to keep hidden their misdeeds. Their stranglehold on the mainstream media enables their apparent nonchalance in the stonewall of those requests, as it enables the entire vaccine paradigm.

Despite the open ended nature of the actual extent of vaccine damage, they continue to characterize vaccines virtually categorically as safe, as though severe vaccine injury were a myth. The general public reads that as: there's simply no reason for concern, and the temporal divide between the act of vaccination and the display of so many of the resultant injuries, along with the public's dogged, undeserved trust in doctors' ill-informed, unfounded assurances that adverse events following vaccination are unrelated to the vaccines, keeps them in the dark. Statistical manipulation, backroom diagnostic changes and the coercive effect of the general acceptance of the myth of vaccine efficacy on disease diagnosis, all obfuscate any true knowledge of the incidence of the supposedly vaccine preventable diseases, and allow the industry to run roughshod over public perception.

Buttressed by the omission of any meaningful mainstream discussion of the power of the immune system and the critical role nutrition plays in its proper development and maintenance, perhaps the cartel's most basic insult is the characterization of infectious disease as the foe, as harmful or deadly, or even as an annoyance we can slough off with no consequence, when, though unwelcome in its discomfort, it's fundamentally an essential, healing process, the purpose of which is to cleanse the body when everyday, routine toxin elimination is no longer adequate, either because of lack of nutrients, or toxin overload, or both.

The vaccine cartel -- controlling individuals in government, the manufacturers, the medical establishment and the mainstream media, through whom they mislead -- has written its own indictment, in stifling any discussion of the safety, effectiveness and efficiency of the properly nourished natural immune system; in terribly misrepresenting the threat of disease -- indeed, its very nature; in using the resulting, constructed fear as primary, coercive motivation for vaccination; in consciously creating the false perception that vaccines are categorically safe; and in creating a controlling and false construct of vaccine efficacy.

SHOCK STUDY: Ten percent of Canadian females receiving HPV vaccines are sent to Emergency Rooms... scientists declare rate to be 'low' for vaccines

US Senator Grassley Investigates Vaccine Corruption in Unsanctioned Experimental Herpes Vaccine Human Research

January 12, 2018 4:06 pm
Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, wrote to Acting Secretary Eric Hargan of the Department of the Health and Human Services (HHS), Commissioner Scott Gottlieb of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Director Jerry Menikoff of the Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) concerning news reports of apparently unsanctioned human research testing conducted by Southern Illinois University (SIU) professor William Halford which put individuals at extreme health risk. Testing involving the use of human subjects in the U.S. is regulated by what is known as the 'Common Rule.' Among other regulations, these include minimizing risk to the subject, selecting subjects equitably, receiving informed consent, continual monitoring and respecting privacy. News reports indicate that Halford may have violated nearly every requirement of the Common Rule. Emails from the professor reportedly stated that it would be 'suicide' if the manner in which he conducted the research were to be made public. Grassley wrote, 'Halford reportedly administered an experimental vaccine to patients who were not enrolled in an approved study and therefore did not have the proper human subjects protections required by U.S. law -- He also reportedly did not acquire written consent from the test subjects.'

A Lone FDA Scientist Could End the Autism Epidemic

January 11, 2018 1:23 pm
In a brand new published study, the only science vouching for the 'safety' of injected aluminum adjuvant has come under extreme criticism by heavyweight scientists. Dr. Robert J. Mitkus -- author of the misleading aluminum safety study from 2011 -- could change the autism debate forever by telling the truth. While you were (hopefully) enjoying the winter holidays, a study was published in the Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry (it went online on December 27th) that could change the autism debate permanently. In fact, this new study placed the burden of proof for the safety of aluminum adjuvants used in vaccines so squarely on the shoulders of a lone FDA scientist -- Dr. Robert J. Mitkus -- that he alone could permanently change the outcome of the autism debate. Forever. I firmly believe that Dr. Robert J. Mitkus, a federal employee of the FDA, can help unravel the autism mess. All he needs to do is tell the truth. He needs to admit that these scientists are right, that the paper being relied upon to vouch for the safety of injected aluminum that he wrote in 2011 is inadequate, in light of much more recent science about aluminum adjuvant, and that the regulatory agencies need to heed the warnings of these scientists, as they explained so eloquently in their recently published paper. It's time for honest scientists to step up and do the right thing.

America's Vaccine Civil War: Will Negative News on Gardasil Turn the Tide in 2018'

January 2, 2018 5:16 pm
In December of 2017 Slate magazine published a report on Gardasil from a Danish reporter titled: What the Gardasil Testing May Have Missed. Slate is part of the corporate mainstream media. Like other corporate media groups, Slate is religiously pro-vaccine, and spouts the mantra that "the science is settled" when it comes to vaccines, an obvious anti-science statement in itself which resembles religious belief more than anything "scientific." Here is an example of what you will read about vaccines on Slate: "There are two sides to almost every story, and sometimes we publish both of them. That's true even for science. But three areas of science are beyond scientific debate even though they are still debated by a lot of people. Evolution and climate change are two. The other is vaccines." So if Slate has publicly stated in the past that the science of vaccines is settled and beyond debate, what was the purpose of this report published last month about Gardasil criticizing safety studies conducted during the approval process?

Study: Repeated Flu Shots Decrease Antibody Response - More Evidence that Annual Flu Shots are Worthless

June 12, 2017 1:33 pm
A new study from Australia lends more evidence to the realization that the flu vaccine is almost worthless when it comes to preventing people from being infected with influenza viruses. The flu vaccine is, by far, the most heavily marketed vaccine in the world, being distributed and injected into more people than almost all other vaccines combined. The flu vaccine also injures and kills more people each year than all other vaccines combined, based on compensations paid for injuries and deaths in vaccine court, and reported by the DOJ. It is the only vaccine that has to be redeveloped every year because the manufacturers have to guess which strains of influenza the vaccine must produce antibodies for each year. Good matches are rare. Due to a censor on any kind of information in the corporate-sponsored "mainstream" media regarding anything negative about vaccines, very few among the public understand just how little science there is behind the annual flu shot.

Herd Immunity Theory Has Been Repeatedly Disproven

June 12, 2017 4:32 pm
Nearly every year, there are outbreaks of infectious diseases in the U.S. in which the communities involved were highly vaccinated and, thus, supposedly immune. In each of those situations there was an illusion of protection. It wasn't real. There was no herd immunity. This has certainly been true for pertussis. In science, when a theory is disproven, the scientific thing to do is to put it aside and develop a new theory for explaining something. That is not what doctors, public health officials, legislators, and the media are doing. Instead, they are clinging to a disproven theory and using it to justify mandating vaccination for everyone and shaming those who choose to exercise their informed consent rights and reconsider this medical intervention.

Study: Annual Flu Shot Ineffective

November 13, 2017 3:39 pm
Researchers with The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California have published a study regarding the ineffectiveness of the annual influenza vaccine. The title of the study is A structural explanation for the low effectiveness of the seasonal influenza H3N2 vaccine. Each year, the CDC calculates how "effective" they believe the flu shot is based on prevalent strains of influenza in the population compared to strains of viruses used to compose the flu vaccine. This current study, however, challenges even the belief that if the right strains of influenza are predicted properly, that the flu shot is "effective," because those viruses contained in the flu shot mutate due to the fact that they are cultured in chicken eggs. The authors of the study state: "Seasonal influenza vaccine does not always confer protection in vaccinated individuals. Vaccine candidates are selected from clinical isolates based on their antigenic properties. It is common to use chicken eggs for culturing clinical isolates and for large-scale production of vaccines. However, influenza virus often mutates to adapt to being grown in chicken eggs, which can influence antigenicity and hence vaccine effectiveness." The lack of science supporting the manufacture and distribution of more than 300 million flu vaccines every year is well-known. Dr. Cammy Benton from North Carolina recently revealed in an interview with the VAXXED team that the CDC even admitted to her that the science was lacking regarding the effectiveness of the annual flu vaccines.

Dr. Andrew Moulden: Every Vaccine Produces Harm

eBook -- Available for immediate download.

Canadian physician Dr. Andrew Moulden provided clear scientific evidence to prove that every dose of vaccine given to a child or an adult produces harm. The truth that he uncovered was rejected by the conventional medical system and the pharmaceutical industry. Nevertheless, his warning and his message to America remains as a solid legacy of the man who stood up against big pharma and their program to vaccinate every person on the Earth.

Dr. Moulden died unexpectedly in November of 2013 at age 49.

Because of the strong opposition from big pharma concerning Dr. Moulden's research, we became concerned that the name of this brilliant researcher and his life's work had nearly been deleted from the internet. His reputation was being disparaged, and his message of warning and hope was being distorted and buried without a tombstone. This book summarizes his teaching and is a must-read for everyone who wants to learn the 'other-side' of the vaccine debate that the mainstream media routinely censors.

Medical Doctors Opposed to Forced Vaccinations -- Should Their Views be Silenced?

eBook -- Available for immediate download.

One of the biggest myths being propagated in the compliant mainstream media today is that doctors are either pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine, and that the anti-vaccine doctors are all 'quacks.'

However, nothing could be further from the truth in the vaccine debate. Doctors are not unified at all on their positions regarding 'the science' of vaccines, nor are they unified in the position of removing informed consent to a medical procedure like vaccines.

The two most extreme positions are those doctors who are 100% against vaccines and do not administer them at all, and those doctors that believe that ALL vaccines are safe and effective for ALL people, ALL the time, by force if necessary.

Very few doctors fall into either of these two extremist positions, and yet it is the extreme pro-vaccine position that is presented by the U.S. Government and mainstream media as being the dominant position of the medical field.

In between these two extreme views, however, is where the vast majority of doctors practicing today would probably categorize their position. Many doctors who consider themselves 'pro-vaccine,' for example, do not believe that every single vaccine is appropriate for every single individual.

Many doctors recommend a 'delayed' vaccine schedule for some patients, and not always the recommended one-size-fits-all CDC childhood schedule. Other doctors choose to recommend vaccines based on the actual science and merit of each vaccine, recommending some, while determining that others are not worth the risk for children, such as the suspect seasonal flu shot.

These doctors who do not hold extreme positions would be opposed to government-mandated vaccinations and the removal of all parental exemptions.

In this eBook, I am going to summarize the many doctors today who do not take the most extremist pro-vaccine position, which is probably not held by very many doctors at all, in spite of what the pharmaceutical industry, the federal government, and the mainstream media would like the public to believe.

Chairman of Israel Medical Association and World Medical Association Opposes Mandatory Flu Vaccines for Doctors

January 17, 2018 3:55 pm
In order to get a perspective on sane and rational vaccine policy, we must again turn away from the U.S. corporate media and their primary advertising sponsors, the pharmaceutical industry. The flu vaccine is, by far, the most prosperous vaccine produced and sold in the U.S., with over 300 million doses produced annually. It is also the leading vaccine, by far, injuring and killing people as evidenced by the quarterly Department of Justice (DOJ) reports of vaccine injury and death compensations by the Vaccine Court. In the U.S., one cannot sue a pharmaceutical company for injuries or deaths related to vaccines. By simply reading the U.S. corporate "mainstream" media one is led to believe that all doctors and medical personnel support mass flu vaccination, and believe all medical staff should be forced to receive the flu vaccine every year. But such is not the case. As we have reported over the past several years, many doctors and nurses nationwide oppose mandatory flu vaccination for medical personnel. There are several lawsuits by individuals and unions nationwide fighting loss of employment due to refusing a flu vaccine. The Jerusalem Post recently reported that Prof. Leonid Eidelman, chairman of the Israel Medical Association and the next president of the World Medical Association, opposes mandatory flu vaccinations for doctors, and he opposes identifying which doctors have been vaccinated for the flu, and which ones have not.

Medical Tyranny in Maryland: Parents Threatened With Jail Time for Not Vaccinating Children

by Mike Adams

(NewsTarget) This is an action item alert for all those who believe in health freedom. State and County officials in Maryland have announced they will send parents to jail if they don't submit their children to forced vaccinations. State Attorney General Glenn F. Ivey has announced he is willing to criminalize parents if they don't bring them to the courthouse to have them injected, on the spot, with vaccines that contain methyl mercury -- a highly toxic nerve chemical that causes brain damage and is linked to autism. The action is backed by Circuit Judge William D. Missouri, Circuit Judge C. Philip Nichols Jr., and the chairman of the Prince George school board, R. Owen Johnson Jr.

Together, these judges and officials have conspired to turn Maryland into a medical police state, invoking the threat of imprisonment in order to achieve a vaccination goal that has more to do with politics than children's actual health or safety. By threatening to imprison parents who object to the supposed health benefits of vaccinations, these state officials are effectively conspiring to cause thousands of children to be separated from their parents -- a move that would create a humanitarian and public health disaster. This thought has not deterred Attorney General Glenn F. Ivey, who said, "We can do this the easy way or the hard way, but it's got to get done." That's the kind of quote that might be uttered by a corrupt police officer pointing a gun in your face and demanding that you do something you don't want to do. Actually, that's not far off base from what the state of Maryland is now asking parents to do: Submit to the harming of their children through the injection of a toxic chemical, all enforced at gunpoint.

These vaccines contain thimerosal, a chemical preservative made, in part, with toxic methyl mercury. This toxic substance was banned decades ago in many countries, but not in the U.S. where corrupt health officials cater to the financial interests of drug companies rather than protecting the public. Read NewsTarget's full report on Thimerosal here:

NewsTarget is launching a grassroots action campaign to file an avalanche of complaints with the relevant Maryland officials, demanding that they reverse their position on this issue and apologize for threatening to throw parents in jail for refusing to have their children forcibly vaccinated. We believe that Attorney General Ivey -- a Democrat -- should be ashamed of himself for invoking such tyrannical actions against his own people, and that judges William Missouri and C. Philip Nichols Jr. should be rebuked for conspiring to threaten the free people of Maryland with imprisonment.

ACLU already contacted

NewsTarget has also contacted the Maryland ACLU, who told us that they cannot take action on this issue until a parent is actually arrested and charged. But at that point, they may take an interest in this case.

Action Items:

If you feel passionate about this issue and want to take a stand, we urge you to call, fax or email the officials named above.

Be sure to contact the office of Attorney General Glenn F. Ivey as well as the school board office of R. Owen Johnson Jr. These are key players in this latest example of medical tyranny.

You do not have to live in Maryland to make your voice heard on this issue. This impacts us all, because if Maryland officials learn they can get away with this kind of Big Brother Medicine scheme, other states may be inspired to pull out their guns and try the same thing. It is crucial that we remind these officials of what country they live in, and here in the United States, We the People still demand our freedoms and our right to choose what kind of medicine is best for our children.

The dangers of vaccines

What's clear is that there is a substantial and scientifically validated link between vaccinations and neurological disorders in children. Maryland state officials apparently have no concern over this matter and are enforcing mandatory vaccinations as if the injections were entirely harmless. This myopic view of the safety of pharmaceuticals is typical of state officials and conventional medical doctors, both of whom are almost always influenced to a large degree by the financial aims of powerful pharmaceutical companies. (Doctors, for example, aren't even taught about the dangers of mercury in vaccines and are told that ALL drugs are safe for use on children, even if those drugs have never been tested on children!)

Due to the enormous amount of information now available about the dangers of vaccinations, there is no question that concerned parents have a right -- if not the responsibility -- to consciously object to the harming of their children via such vaccines. Rejecting mandatory vaccinations is one of the most responsible health decisions an informed parent can make. It is, in fact, all the mindless parents who submit to such vaccinations who are demonstrating a complete lack of concern for the health of their children. These are, no doubt, the same parents who feed their children processed foods, soda pop and school lunches (which contain numerous harmful chemical additives such as sodium nitrite, sodium benzoate and artificial food colors).

Join NewsTarget in taking action, and we'll help put a stop to this medical tyranny. If there's one thing state Attorneys General hate worse than parents who won't get their kids vaccinated, it's waking up to an avalanche of screaming angry parents from all across the country who are tired of being criminalized for merely protecting their children from the dangers of vaccines.

Dissecting A Thimerosal Study

by Heidi Stevenson

(NewsTarget) They're at it again. The campaign to make people believe that vaccines and their preservative, thimerosal, are safe is in full swing. The usual technique of a pseudo-scientific test is being used, with the medical system jumping on the bandwagon. The upshot of the reports is always the same: to belittle the legitimate fear of serious risks.

What's the hoopla?

Susan Jeffrey, news editor of, has produced an article touting "Weight of Evidence Against Thimerosal Causing Neuropsychological Deficits”. On reading the article, it sounds convincing. To top it off, Dr. Paul A. Offitt is quoted as calling the issue of thimerosal a “cautionary tale”. He refers to a “cottage industry of charlatans offering false hope, partly in the form of mercury-chelating agents” to help children with autism. Pretty strong statement, isn't it?

The first point that should be made is that the study in question specifically does not include children with autism. The issue on which Offitt is making his point has absolutely nothing to do with the study.

Who is Dr. Offitt? He serves on the scientific advisory board of Merck and holds a patent on RotaTeq, a vaccine against rotavirus gastroenteritis. It's produced by Merck and has been noted for causing intussuseption, which is intestinal twisting, a life-threatening condition. Merck advocates giving this vaccine to babies aged 6 to 12 weeks, and it is now being routinely pushed by doctors. This new vaccine, with its life-threatening risk, is being given to prevent a disease that usually lasts from 3-8 days. Death from rotavirus gastroenteritis is almost unknown in the U.S. and common only where access to adequate nutrition or clean water is an issue.

So, the expert quoted has made a statement that has nothing to do with the study and he holds a patent on a dangerous vaccine being pushed on tiny babies for a disease that holds almost no risk if they're healthy. Is this the sort of person whose opinion on the issue—especially considering the fact that his statement has nothing to do with the study in question—is worthwhile?

What does the study actually say?

The bottom line, though, should be the quality of the study on which all the hoopla is based. So, let's take a look.

The study was reported by The New England Journal of Medicine on September 27, 2007. First, let's take a look at conflicts of interest of some of its authors:

*Dr. Thompson—the lead investigator—is a former employee of Merck.

*Dr. Marcy has received consulting fees from Merck, Sanofi Pasteur, GlaxoSmithKline, and MedImmune.

*Dr. Jackson received grant money from Wyeth, Sanofi Pasteur, GlaxoSmithKline, and Novartis. He received lecture fees from Sanofi Pasteur and consulting fees from Wyeth and Abbott. Currently, he is a consultant to the FDA Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee.

*Dr. Lieu is a consultant to the CDC Advisory Committee on Immunication Practices.

*Dr. Black receives consulting fees from MedImmune, GlaxoSmithKline, Novartis, and Merck, and grant support from MedImmune, GlaxoSmithKline, Aventis, Merck, and Novartis.

*Dr. Davis receives consulting fees from Merck and grant support from Merck and GlaxoSmithKline.

The article then states, “No other potential conflict of interest relevant to this article was reported.” One must wonder if it might have been easier to identify researchers who don't have a conflict of interest!

Then, we have the fact that the primary concern about thimerosal, that it might cause autism, is not even addressed by the study in question. In fact, it is specifically not included!

Looking at the report of the study itself reveals:

Any child with a preexisting neurological condition was eliminated from the test. However, is it not possible—in fact, probable—that these children are the most at risk from exposure to thimerosal? Any child who developed certain neurological conditions was excluded. These conditions included encephalitis and meningitis. The possibility that thimerosal might cause these conditions was eliminated from consideration.
Of the 3,648 originally selected for the study: 959 dropped out. Of these, 68% cited a lack of time. However, there is no consideration for why they couldn't spend the time. The possibility that some of these mothers were overburdened by having children with neurological problems, which is, of course, the focus of the study, simply isn't considered.

13% of these mothers are reported to have been distrustful or ambivalent about the research, but what their bias was is not indicated. Could they have decided not to take part because they noted a bias on the part of the researchers? 512 were eliminated because they "did not meet one or more of the eligibility requirements". (The aforementioned issue of conditions that might predispose to harm from thimerosal or be caused by thimerosal are not considered.) Thus, 1288, 35%, of the children, were eliminated from the study for reasons that, at best, are not adequately documented.

Other children were eliminated for various other reasons. One group excluded was children whose birth weight was under 2,500 grams, about 5.5 pounds. How many babies were eliminated for being underweight is not stated. Babies of this weight are hardly rare and they are not excluded from vaccinations. What legitimate reason could be given for this exclusion?

In the end, only 30% of the originally-selected children were included in the study.

The study itself acknowledges that selection bias might have been a factor in the findings. It acknowledged that interventional treatments for neurological deficits were not considered and that parents had not been trained to assess tics, so reports of such abnormalities may not have been made. Finally, the study noted that autism itself—the condition most often connected with thimerosal—was not considered.

So what are the results on the 30% of children—the ones least likely to be affected by the toxin mercury—who were not excluded from the study? They appear to show sex-related changes in neuropsychological tests, both positive and negative.

According to the article, “An increase of 2 SD [second deviations] in mercury exposure was associated with an average of a 3-point increase in performance IQ among boys and a 3-point decrease in verbal IQ among girls.” Even if this statement is accurate—and the means by which the study excluded children makes that doubtful—the consistency of a three point drop in verbal IQ among girls at the second standard deviation would likely be enough to give most parents second thoughts before subjecting their daughters to thimerosal.

The study also noted an increase in tics, a replication of a result from an HMO. The article suggests that “The replication of the findings regarding tics suggests the potential need for further studies. ”

So, even by excluding 70% of the children, the study itself concluded that there is an indication of risk that should be evaluated further. This is hardly the same as the screaming headline in Medscape claiming that there is no risk from thimerosal.

What does it all mean?

Here's the bottom line: Mercury, which is the dangerous element in thimerosal, is known to be extremely toxic, causing a wide range of neurological disorders and possibly others, including cancer. This is not even open to discussion; it's a statement of fact. It is also known that it accumulates in the body. Thus, each and every exposure to mercury increases the risk of harm. These inescapable facts make it quite clear that any study showing that thimerosal is not dangerous must be playing games. Even if it is not harmful at the doses used in vaccinations, the fact remains that the mercury stays in the body, adding to the toxic load that invariably exists in everyone in this modern age.

Clearly, it is disingenuous to suggest that there is no risk in thimerosal. It doesn't require studies to realize that fact. The study examined in this article shows clearly that those producing it are well paid by the pharmaceutical firms that profit by its use. The flaws in the study are huge. Over two-thirds of its original sample group were eliminated, and many of those eliminated have characteristics that would be more likely to document harm.

Yet, the news media and medical shills for the pharmaceutical industry are already hawking the claims. Worse, they're doing so by using the people in the medical industry who are already deep in the pockets of pharmaceutical firms. This is the reality of most of the medical studies being done and touted today: They are bought and paid for by those who profit from the results. Thus, whatever is necessary to show whatever the profiteers wish to see is done. Could there be any other valid reason for eliminating small babies from this study?

About the author: Heidi Stevenson, Gaia Therapy
The author is a practicing homeopath who became concerned with medically-induced harm as a result of her own experiences and those of family members. She says that medicine is the arena that best describes the motto, "Buyer beware."
Iatrogenic disease is illness, disability, and death caused by medical practice. It is common, resulting in huge costs to society and individuals. It's possible - even common - to suffer an iatrogenic illness without realizing its source. Heidi hopes to provide information about medically-induced problems, so the public can protect themselves.

I use the homeopathic nosodes for my family and self instead of vaccinations because they're safe, effective and contain no poisonous toxins or extra cancer-causing viruses, bacteria, foreign debris and proteins (unlike vaccinations):

The great thimerosal cover-up: Mercury, vaccines, autism and your child's health

by Dawn Prate

You have probably seen your nurse insert a syringe into a large vial, extract some liquid, and then leave a substantial amount of vaccine in the original container. If you've witnessed this seemingly benign procedure, you've seen how vaccine manufacturers are saving money at the expense of public health. In order to store larger amounts of vaccine at a lower cost, companies began offering "multi-dose units" while adding preservatives to prevent contaminations. That way doctors can open and close a vaccine container, inviting germs into the once-sterile solution, while assuring the public that those contaminants are quickly killed by the preservative.

Sound familiar? It's the same story of corporate America's love affair with preservatives. It saves them money, while posing an undue risk to your health. But like many toxic preservatives found in food, a vaccine preservative kills more than just bacteria and fungi; it can lead to extensive neurological damage in your children, and has even been implicated in autism.


Thimerosal is the preservative of choice for vaccine manufacturers. First introduced by Eli Lilly and Company in the late 1920s and early 1930s, the company began selling it as a preservative in vaccines in the 1940s. Thimerosal contains 49.6 percent mercury by weight and is metabolized or degraded into ethylmercury and thiosalicylate. Mercury, or more precisely, ethylmercury, is the principle agent that kills contaminants. Unfortunately, mercury also kills much more than that.

The Department of Defense classifies mercury as a hazardous material that could cause death if swallowed, inhaled or absorbed through the skin. Studies indicate that mercury tends to accumulate in the brains of primates and other animals after they are injected with vaccines. Mercury poisoning has been linked to cardiovascular disease, autism, seizures, mental retardation, hyperactivity, dyslexia and many other nervous system conditions. That's why the FDA rigorously limits exposure to mercury in foods and drugs. Some common sources of mercury include dental amalgam fillings, various vaccines and certain fish contaminated by polluted ocean waters.

The toxicity of mercury has never been in question. The real question is precisely how much mercury-laced thimerosal is toxic, and what are the possible consequences for our children at low doses?

Eli Lilly and Co. supposedly answered this question for us back in 1930. Concluding thimerosal to be of "a very low order of toxicity . . . for man," the company hired its own doctors to perform thimerosal experiments in Indianapolis City Hospital on meningitis patients during a severe outbreak in 1929. This 60-year-old evidence was still quoted on the company's brochures as recently as 1990. Andrew Waters, who is involved in a lawsuit against Eli Lilly, claims that most critical studies on the toxicity of thimerosal were suppressed by the company until now.

Banned around the world, but not in the United States

That might explain why thimerosal was eliminated in many countries 20 years ago. In 1977, a Russian study found that adults exposed to ethylmercury, the form of mercury in thimerosal, suffered brain damage years later. Studies on thimerosal poisoning also describe tubular necrosis and nervous system injury, including obtundation, coma and death. As a result of these findings, Russia banned thimerosal from children's vaccines in 1980. Denmark, Austria, Japan, Great Britain and all the Scandinavian countries have also banned the preservative.

Eli Lilly stuck to its "scientific" facts, but the truth began slipping between the cracks in 1999. After the number of immunizations rose to 12 to 15 per child, the public finally became privy to the possible dangers of thimerosal. One 1999 study revealed that some infants, due to a genetic or developmental factor, lack the ability to eliminate mercury. Trace amounts of mercury in these infants, when accumulated over several vaccines, could pose a severe health risk. Some vaccines, such as vaccines for hepatitis B, contained as much as 12.5 micrograms of mercury per dose. That's more than 100 times the EPA's upper limit standard when administered to infants.

Hepatitis B vaccines aren't the only immunizations under suspicion. According to Burton Goldberg in Alternative Medicine, scientists are finding stronger and stronger links between thimerosal and neurological damage. One report by Dr. Vijendra Singh of the Department of Pharmacology at the University of Michigan found a higher incidence of measles, mumps and rubella vaccine (MMR) antibodies in autistic children.

The National Vaccine Information Center in Vienna, Virginia, has noted a strong association between the MMR vaccine and autistic features. Reporting similar findings, the Encephalitis Support Group in England claims that children who became autistic after the MMR vaccine started showing autistic symptoms as early as 30 days after vaccination. The diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus vaccine (DPT) given at two, four and six months has triggered autistic symptoms, as well.

When the FDA finally formally released this information in 1999, the news came too little too late for some parents. The damage had already been done.

Links between autism and thimerosal

Autism affects 500,000 to 1.5 million Americans and has grown at an annual rate of 10 to 17 percent since the late 1980s. California found a 273 percent increase in autism between 1987 and 1998. Maryland reported a 513 percent increase in autism between 1993 and 1998 and several dozen other states reported similar findings. Some scientists say the estimated number of cases of autism has increased 15-fold –1,500 percent – since 1991, when the number of childhood vaccinations doubled. Whereas one in every 2,500 children was diagnosed with autism before 1991, one in 166 children now have the disease.

This increase in reported autism cases eerily parallels the increase in the number and frequency of thimerosal-containing vaccinations administered to infants. As of today, children are given as many as 21 immunizations in the first 15 months of life. After a number of scientists and concerned activists noticed the correlation, an investigation was launched to get to the heart of the matter.

Statistical evidence links thimerosal with nervous system disorders

In June 2000, federal officials and industry representatives were assembled by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to discuss the disturbing evidence. According to Tom Verstraeten, an epidemiologist who had analyzed the data on the CDC's database, thimerosal appeared to be responsible for a dramatic increase in autism and other neurological disorders. Verstraeten told those at the meeting that a number of earlier studies indicate a link between thimerosal and speech delays, attention-deficit disorder, hyperactivity and autism.

Verstraeten offered no possible cause for this correlation, but held that the statistical evidence linking vaccines and neurological disorders was strong. Dr. Bill Weil, a consultant for the American Academy of Pediatrics, and Dr. Richard Johnston, an immunologist and pediatrician from the University of Colorado, presented similar concerns to the group. However, given no causal relationship, the CDC and industry representatives were quick to discredit the evidence.

Consequently, the CDC paid the Institute of Medicine (IOM) to conduct another study on thimerosal. According to Robert F. Kennedy Jr., this study was fixed in order to "whitewash" previous findings. In its 2001 report, the IOM's Immunization Safety Review Committee did conclude that the link between thimerosal and neurodevelopmental disorders was biologically plausible, though the evidence neither proved nor negated it. The Committee stated that phasing out thimerosal from vaccines was “a prudent measure in support of the public health goal to reduce mercury exposure of infants and children as much as possible.” However, these findings offered no imperative. The data presented at the 2000 meeting was withheld from publication and the link between thimerosal and autism remained "inconclusive."

But what does "inconclusive" mean? Well, that depends on who you talk to. According to the FDA, these "inconclusive" findings negate the risk of a causal relationship between thimerosal and autism. Even Tom Verstraeten, one of the presenters of epidemiological evidence at the CDC meeting, seemingly changed his tune a bit. In 2000, Verstraeten vigorously campaigned against thimerosal based upon his "inconclusive" correlation, but after he was hired by GlaxoSmithKline, the doctor changed his position. The same evidence from 2000, in Verstraeten's eyes, became "neutral" in 2003. After criticism for this apparent flip-flop, Verstaeten wrote a letter to the editor of Pediatrics in 2004 backing the CDC's actions and his own research methods.

Merck continues selling vaccines with thimerosal

Without an imperative to eradicate thimerosal immediately, vaccine manufacturers like Merck & Co. seemingly took their time in reducing thimerosal levels in vaccines. After a large public outcry in 1999, Merck & Co. began decreasing or eliminating the amount of thimerosal in its vaccines. In September 1999, Merck announced that its new line of vaccines were preservative-free, but still continued to distribute the remainder of thimerosal-preserved vaccines until 2001. Only after a congressional inquiry in 2002 did they stop distributing their stockpile. Rep. Dave Weldon, R-Fla., called Merck's actions "misleading."

While officials at the Center for Disease Control claim evidence is lacking to support the possible risks of thimerosal, Dr. Mark Geier, a Maryland geneticist and vaccinologist, along with his son and research partner David Geier, says the CDC has chosen to ignore the science. According to Dr. Geier, more than 5,000 articles have been published that question the safety of thimerosal in vaccines.

The Geiers analyzed the data and determined that the more thimerosal a child receives, the greater his or her chances are of being autistic. The CDC says the Geiers misused information from a CDC database that was not intended to help prove theories. Given no real causal mechanism linking thimerosal and autism, the game seems to have become one of slanting the data to suit the needs of government and industrial interests. Even Verstraeten has admitted that these "inconclusive" findings certainly don't rule out the possibility of finding a link in the future.

Grassroots action against vaccine manufacturers

Given the dearth of health organizations owning up to the dangers of thimerosal, many parents followed their gut instincts and took legal action against vaccine manufacturers. More than 4,200 families have filed lawsuits claiming thimerosal caused injuries to their children. These lawsuits often have two goals: First, to seek reparations for the loss of consortium (basically meaning that an autistic child creates emotional and psychological burdens on their family life), and second, to ensure that these companies exercise more concern for public health and less concern for their own bottom line.

The lawsuits are slow in producing results. The first constraint on these lawsuits is the National Childhood Vaccine Act of 1986. This act stipulates that victims cannot seek redress in the courts without first filing a claim for recovery in the federal Vaccine Court. The statute of limitations for this is within three years of "the first symptom or manifestation of onset or of the significant aggravation of a [vaccine-related] injury."

In the cases of many thimerosal victims, the link between autism and vaccines didn't appear until six years after the first vaccine was administered. While this statute has stopped some claims against vaccine manufacturers, including such big firms as Aventis, GlaxoSmithKline, Merck and Johnson & Johnson, many judges are now allowing suits against Eli Lilly, the maker of thimerosal, to stand. While the Vaccine Act shields vaccine manufacturers, one judge reasons that the legislation does not protect the production of thimerosal because it is a "component."

The burden of proof in court is also extremely problematic for most of these suits. Given the supposed lack of scientific data, lawyers are hard-pressed to prove the link between thimerosal and autism. In what seems like an underhanded move, the CDC sold its data to a private company, ensuring that lawyers could not access it under the Freedom of Information Act.

In the past five years, Congress has also aided vaccine manufacturers, supposedly for "security" reasons. In 2002, a mysterious piggyback on the 2002 Homeland Security bill freed drug companies of liability in lawsuits regarding thimerosal. Called the "Eli Lilly Protection Act" by outraged parents and activists, the then-House Majority Leader Dick Armey told CBS News he snuck the amendment in to keep vaccine-makers from going out of business. Armey claimed it was a matter of national security. "We need their vaccines if the country is attacked with germ weapons."

Ironically, foreign biological terrorism hasn't been a big problem for American citizens, but those whose lives (and the lives of their children) have been affected if not ruined by the harmful effects of thimerisol would undoubtedly say these potentially harmful vaccines are indeed a problem. Armey's piggyback bill was repealed in 2003, but that didn't stop lawmakers from continuing to protect the vaccine industry.

Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist is no stranger to the thimerosal debate, having received $873,000 in contributions from the pharmaceutical industry and $10,000 from Eli Lilly. Frist's position allowed him to attempt to help the industry from the inside, according to Kennedy. Kennedy reports that on five occasions, Frist tried to seal the government's vaccine-related documents and shield Eli Lilly from subpoenas. Frist also introduced a provision in the 2005 Senate Bill S-3 called the "Protecting America in the War on Terror Act," that would effectively insulate the pharmaceutical industry from liability for thimerosal poisoning. Pharmaceutical manufacturers, including Merck, GlaxoSmithKline, Aventis, Weyeth and Eli Lilly, can basically get off scot-free for their actions, even as more and more evidence suggests that top company officials were aware of the possible dangers and did nothing.

A secret memo leaked to the Los Angeles Times reportedly implicates one vaccine manufacturer, Merck & Co., for knowing that thimerosal could pose serious threats to infants. Allegedly, Dr. Maurice Hilleman, one of Merck's top scientists, warned the president of Merck of a possible threat as early as 1991. Dr. Hilleman told executives that six-month-old children receiving regular immunizations frequently received mercury doses 87 times higher than guidelines for the maximum consumption of mercury. Given today's more prudent mercury standards, those thimerosal doses would be 400 times that of safe levels. Dr. Hilleman recommended in the memo that thimerosal be discontinued.

Not only do government and industry officials seem to be trying to downplay the possible harms of thimerosal; the media is also denying the issue coverage. Just recently, ABC flip-flopped on whether it will air interviews with Robert Kennedy Jr., a leading critic of thimerosal. ABC has been accused of suppressing the interviews because of its ties to the pharmaceutical industry.

The thimerosal debate continues

Along with the enormous amount of controversy surrounding this issue, the five-year-old plea for "more research" may have finally produced some results. Burton Goldberg notes that a defect in the myelinization process (insulation of nerve fibers) could explain mercury's propensity to cause autism and neurological damage. This may also account for the frequent development of epilepsy in older autistic children.

Scientists are also working on biological links that support the strong correlations. Researchers at Northeastern University, working with scientists from the University of Nebraska, Tufts and Johns Hopkins University, may have recently found the mechanism by which thimerosal interferes with brain activity. If these researchers are right, vaccine manufacturers could do little to keep the damaging effects of thimerosal hidden.

Pharmacy professor Richard Deth and colleagues found that exposure to thimerosal potently interrupts growth factor signaling, causing adverse effects on the transfer of carbon atoms. These carbon atoms play a significant role in regulating normal DNA function and gene expression and are critical to proper neurological development. Additionally, the scientists recently obtained more insight into the mechanism by which thimerosal interferes with folate-dependent methylation. The mechanism inhibits the biosynthesis of the active form of vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin), a vitamin now being administered to autistic children.

The experts speak on mercury, vaccines and thimerosal

Now all childhood vaccines have at least one mercury-free version, and I urge parents to ask for those versions if they choose to vaccinate their children. Injecting mercury into children, especially infants whose immune systems are still underdeveloped (hepatitis B shots are typically given at birth, before the immune system has developed), can be an assault to the immune system.
What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Autoimmune Disorders by Stephen B Edelson MD, page 65

In 1999 studies began to surface showing that multi-dose vial vaccines, such as the MMR and hepatitis B vaccines, contained enough thimerosal to expose vaccinated children to 62.5 ug of mercury per visit to the pediatrician. This is one hundred times the dose considered safe by the Federal Environmental Protection Guidelines for infants! Worse yet, some infants will receive doses even higher; because thimerosal tends to settle in the vial. If it is not shaken up before being drawn, the first dose will contain low concentrations of mercury and the last dose will contain enormously high concentrations. If your baby is the unlucky one that gets the last dose, serious brain injury can result…

Thousands of families say they can demonstrate with videotapes and photos that their children were normal prior to being vaccinated, reacted badly to the vaccines, and became autistic shortly thereafter. The number of vaccines given before age two has risen from 3 in 1940, when autism occurred in perhaps one case per 10,000 births, to 22 different vaccines given before the age of two in the year 2000.

We know that certain forms of mercury, such as methylmercury and phenylmercury, are highly lipid soluble, which makes the brain especially susceptible to mercury accumulation. These forms of mercury are found in vaccines as the preservative thimerosal. Once in the brain, it tends to attach itself to protein structures, especially to the cell membrane, where it can disrupt membrane functions.23 By binding to the cell membrane, mercury changes the membrane's fluid-like quality, making it stiffer and causing the cell to age faster.24 The brain is unique in that neurons depend on special microscopic tube-like structures within the cell, appropriately called neurotubules, for their function. These neurotubules are manufactured by the cell from a substance called tubulin. We know that mercury interacts with tubulin causing it to unravel. Studies in rats have shown that doses of mercury corresponding to those seen in humans can cause a 75 percent increase in tubulin inhibition.
Health And Nutrition Secrets by Russell L Blaylock MD, page 53

In the case of the susceptible newborn infant and toddler, multiple exposures to mercury-containing and multiple antigen vaccines are highly suspect in the causation of multiple organ injury (Bernard et al. 2000). The GI tract, the liver, the pancreas, the kidneys, the immune system, and the brain are major sites of mercury absorption. Researchers have clearly shown a chronic inflammatory bowel disease due to vaccine strain measles in a subset of children with autism (Thompson et al. 1995; Wakefield et al. 1995, 1999, 2000a,b; Kawashima et al. 2000; Pardi et al. 2000; Uhlmann et al. 2002).
Disease Prevention And Treatment by Life Extension Foundation, page 153

Studies of autistic children have frequently shown very high levels of mercury, with no other source but vaccines found for the exposure. These levels are equal to those seen in adults during toxic industrial exposures. Several autism clinics have found dramatic improvements in the behavior and social interactions in children from whom the mercury was chelated. Results depended on how soon the mercury was removed following exposure, but permanent damage can be caused if the metal is not chelated soon enough. Still, even in cases of severe damage, because of the infant brain's tremendous reparative ability, improvements are possible. The problem of autism involves numerous body systems including the gastrointestinal, immune and nervous systems; as a result we see numerous infections and magnified effects of malnutrition. Intrepid workers in the shadows, that is outside the medial establishment, have worked many miracles with these children using a multidisciplinary scientific approach completely ignored by the orthodoxy. Some children have even experienced a return to complete physiological normalcy.
Health And Nutrition Secrets by Russell L Blaylock MD, page 166

Mercury and autism mercury toxicity is a suspected cause of a steep rise—a tenfold increase between 1984 and 1994—in diagnosed cases of autism in children around the world, according to some scientists. Specifically, the culprit is thimerosal, a mercury-based compound used as a preservative in vaccines commonly administered to babies and infants. thimerosal-free vaccines are available. If you have a child who will be receiving vaccinations, ask for and make sure thimerosal-free vaccines are used. Kelp, with its essential minerals (especially calcium and magnesium), helps remove unwanted metal deposits.
Prescription For Dietary Wellness by Phyllis A Balch, page 198

The pertussis vaccine (DPT) may cause 45,000 cases of autism per year in America, affecting 15 cases out of 10,000 vaccinations; also caused by the measles-mumps-rubella vaccine (MMR) that causes mental impairment, gastrointestinal damage, and increased mortality in 6-12 months from impaired immunity; 9 out of 10 cases were not breast-fed; eating dairy products caused parasites in the autistic (take Vermex; contact Dr. Nelson in Mexico for control of parasites in children with autism). There are now over 500,000 victims of autism residing in the United States, in 1994. The pertussis vaccination is not used in Sweden, which has virtually 0 cases of autism, as does Holland. This mental illness afflicts environmentally and socially non-reactive persons, ofwithdrawn personality; with inability to speak, violenttantrums, insomnia, actions such as bolting across aroad with no regard for the dire consequences. May be caused infant antibiotic use in ear infections with subsequent yeast overgrowth, by cumulative genetic Brain damage, Vitamin deficiencies, or milk and additives allergies. Immune disorders in autism include white blood cellneutrophil Myeloperoxidase enzyme deficiency for insufficient hypochlorite ions to kill yeast - genetic type from Chromosome 17 mutation or biotinidase deficiency, or acquired type from lead poisoning, Folic acid or B-l 2 deficiency, infection or leukemias…

Multiple vaccinations, especially in newborns, are another major source of childhood mercury exposure because of the mercury-containing thimerosal preservative. Over twenty-two vaccinations are now recommended for children before the age of two!
Health And Nutrition Secrets by Russell L Blaylock MD, page 64

In addition, there is some anecdotal evidence that autism may be tied to diet. One theory is that, in very rare cases, a child's immune system could be weakened by the measles-mumps-rubella vaccination (MMR), which is usually administered before a child turns 2. As a result of this weakening, the theory goes, the child's digestive system is unable to break down certain food proteins, leading to abnormal brain development. Proponents of this theory believe that putting the child on a diet that eliminates certain foods, such as wheat and dairy products, could in certain cases reverse the course of the disease. This theory remains speculative, however, and research needs to be done to determine its validity. In fact, a 2001 report issued by an Institute of Medicine committee examining studies about the health effects of the MMR vaccine in young children suggests that there is no proven link between the vaccine and autism. The committee recommends that there be no change in immunization practices that require children to be immunized during early childhood.
The Immune Advantage by Ellen Mazo and Keith Berndtson MD, page 292

Rather than calling for an all-out immediate ban on thimerosal-containing vaccines, they suggested that parents continue to have their children vaccinated with mercury-contaminated vaccines until new stocks of uncontaminated vaccine could be made available. Here are two doctors' unions that had to be beat over the head with an overwhelming amount of data that mercury-contaminated vaccines were harming children far worse than the actual diseases against which the vaccine was intended to protect them, only to have them suggest that parents continue to harm their children just to satisfy their vaccination obsession. Are you surprised to discover that recent investigations have found that several doctor-members of vaccine boards were either receiving grants from vaccine manufacturers or held stock in the companies? They were willing to sacrifice the health of millions of children just to fill their pockets with cash. These people should be looking through bars, not serving on boards.
Health And Nutrition Secrets by Russell L Blaylock MD, page 167

Vaccines may afflict 45,000 cases of autism per year in America, which afflicts 15 victims in every 10.000 births: there are now 5 00,000 of these victims in the U.S. In Sweden not using the pertussis vaccine, there is virtually no autism (and likewise in Holland).
Anti-Aging Manual by Joseph B Marion, page 600

Many symptoms of autism are similar to those of mercury poisoning. Immune dysfunction, visual disturbances, and motor dysfunction are seen in both. Treating autistic children for removal of mercury and other heavy metals has shown significant improvement in their autistic symptoms. Most autistic individuals have poor liver detoxification, low antioxidant levels, and low levels of glutathione. Vaccines are effective, but the production and use of vaccines should proceed more cautiously. Currently manufactured vaccines still contain harmful substances like mercury. The link between vaccines and autism is far stronger than the medical community is willing to admit, and more research in this area should be an urgent priority.
Building Wellness with DMG by Roger V Kendall PhD, page 105

Studies indicate that autism may be the result of adverse reactions to childhood vaccinations. Dr. Alan Cohen, an environmental physician from Connecticut, notes that high levels of autism and attention deficit disorder (ADD) did not occur until the mandatory use of childhood vaccinations, and suggests that there may be a connection between certain vaccines and the onset of these conditions.
Complete Encyclopedia Of Natural Healing by Gary Null PhD, page 46

Almost from the inception of vaccination programs, manufacturers added a mercury preservative called thimerosal to vaccines. The practice continued until recently, and was stopped only because of the outcry from thousands of concerned parents and numerous experts in the field. The American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Academy of Family Practice did not warn parents or pediatricians that the mercury was dangerous until they were forced to. That mercury was toxic to cells had been known for over sixty years, but manufacturers apparently were more worried about lawsuits…

In fact, a 2001 report issued by an Institute of Medicine committee examining studies about the health effects of the MMR vaccine in young children suggests that there is no proven link between the vaccine and autism. The committee recommends that there be no change in immunization practices that require children to be immunized during early childhood. Another disorder affecting the brain, Alzheimer's disease, may also have an immune connection. Alzheimer's is a degenerative disease that slowly attacks nerve cells in the brain. It eventually results in the loss of all memory and mental functioning. Scientists are currently investigating the role that the immune system plays in producing an overabundance of the amino acid glutamate, a powerful nerve-cell killer. Another immune connection that researchers are investigating is the idea that Alzheimer's might be triggered, in part, by a virus.

In the past 10 years, the number of autistic children has risen between 200 and 500 per cent in every state in the U.S. This sharp increase in autism followed the introduction of MMR vaccine in 1975. Representative Dan Burton's healthy grandson was given injections for 9 diseases in one day. These injections were followed by autism.

"Probably 20% of American children, one in five, suffers from a "development disability'," according to Harris Coulter, Ph.D., Founder and Director of the Center for Empirical Medicine, in Washington, D.C. "This is a stupefying figure and we have inflicted it on ourselves. 'Development disabilities' are nearly always generated by encephalitis. And the primary cause of encephalitis in the U.S. and other industrialized countries is the childhood vaccination program. To be specific, a large proportion of the millions of U.S. children and adults suffering from autism, seizures, mental retardation, hyperactivity, dyslexia, and other branches of the hydra-headed entity called 'development disabilities' owe their disorders to one of the vaccines against childhood diseases."

Martin noted that the increased incidence of chronic fatigue syndrome, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, autism, and other behavior-linked illnesses "may be an inadvertent consequence of stealth virus vaccine contaminants."

Just for perspective if we go back to 1971 up to 1980, we see that California consistently added 100 to 200 new cases a year; but in the year 2002, California added 3,577 new cases. Since 1980, the documented start of California's autism epidemic, the number of new cases has steadily increased. If we break down those statistics it means that from 1994 to 1995, California only added on average 2 new autistic children a day into its system. In 2001, it was a rate of 8 new autistic children added a day; in 2002, it jumped up to 10 children a day. mercury-containing vaccines are still in use today, including the most recently recommended addition to the childhood immunization schedule, 2 shots of flu vaccine for infants, bringing the total number of vaccines up to 41 in California that a child will receive before the age of two. It will take a few years to start seeing the effect of the phasing out of the mercury-containing preservative thimerosal from childhood vaccines on this autism epidemic. Many symptoms of autism are similar to those of mercury poisoning. Immune dysfunction, visual disturbances, and motor dysfunction are seen in both. Treating autistic children for removal of mercury and other heavy metals has shown significant improvement in their autistic symptoms. Most autistic individuals have poor liver detoxification, low antioxidant levels, and low levels of glutathione.

Since the 1990s, there has been a tenfold or 1000-percent increase in autism, an increase which has been linked by some researchers to the organic mercury preservative commonly found in baby vaccines. A greatly increased incidence of juvenile diabetes has been correlated to specific vaccination sequences and to the number of vaccines given. In some Australian Aboriginal communities, every second child died shortly after vaccination.
The Natural Way to Heal by Walter Last, page 309

The best current estimates are that autism occurs in 40 to 67 children per 10,000 live births. This means that the prevalence of autism has increased 1,000 percent in the last decade. According to the latest figures just released in January 2003 by the California Department of Developmental Services, California experienced an astounding 31 percent increase in the number of new children…

Pharmaceutical Drugs And Human Guinea Pigs
by Michael Cambray

It has been publicly suggested in the UK Sunday Times, 30th September 07, by one of Britain’s most senior scientists, Professor Colin Blakemore, (the out-going chief executive of the government funded Medical Research Council), that humans should be used as guinea pigs by chemical companies to cut the costs and time of developing medicines.

Professor Blakemore insists that extensive and expensive trials on animals could be cut by up to 90%. This could be done by testing new drugs directly on patients instead of wasting time on animals. Additionally fewer people need to be trialed before approval. It is claimed the current animal drug trials methodology involves extensive experiments, costing hundreds of millions of dollars and takes up to 10 years to bring to the market place.

The professor admits that his proposals raise ethical issues about placing the advancement of medical science and development of new drugs before the welfare of individual patients. Professor Blakemore admits that there are ethical problems because people are actually acting as guinea pigs. He says, “The new approach is not only for the benefit of the individual but for the broader good of the community”.

He also claims, “Patients ought to feel a duty to take part in medical trials”. He added, “It will be done with the full understanding and consent of the individuals”.

Michael’s comments:

It is interesting that a retiring senior member of Britain’s Medical Research Council should express such a controversial opinion. The pharmaceutical multinationals have an appalling record with drug testing already, without such a risky and perilous suggestion being actively promoted.

As a naturopath I have often commented upon my concerns about the long term testing of new drugs. It seems very few medicinal drugs available from pharmaceutical companies have been truly long term tested before being placed on the market. (Despite regulations to the contrary).

Most people are unaware that for many years drugs have already been tested on patients, we are already guinea pigs!

How often a doctor has pulled a packet or bottle from his drawer during a visit and said,” try these and let me know how they go”. Don’t do it, you are being guinea pigged!

These giant multi billion dollar drug conglomerates were originally supposed to have their new products tested by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). However, the FDA is generally regarded as toothless, infiltrated by ex drug company employees and overwhelmed by a constant supply of new drugs, so the drug companies are often doing their own testing, with predictable results.

According to a report from the FDA, 797 of the 1231 trials supposed to have been commenced last year have yet to start. They also reported the obvious fact that failure to complete tests could place consumers at risk.

Generally the regulators monitor drug safety through voluntary reporting by doctors and pharmacists on any side effects, a system that has obvious drawbacks. This pattern causes a severe under reporting, leading both doctors and patients to believe drugs are much safer than they really are.

The subject of drug testing has long been a cause of suspected cover-ups and lies by multinational companies.

There are literally dozens of reports of humans being tested with new drugs in third world countries, mostly without being told what the drugs were for and not being advised of their right of refusal. In 1996 Reuter’s news agency reported the drug company Pfizer tested an unapproved drug Trovan on children in Nigeria. Five children died and many contracted brain damage and arthritis.

This year the Nigerian government finally attempted to sue Pfizer, who of course deny everything.

In England two years ago six backpackers were tempted by an offer of $5,000 each from the drug company TeGenero who apparently were aware of great concern over the dangers of the drug, TGN1412, but went ahead with the tests anyway. In the process they destroyed the lives of the six volunteers and their families.

According to Time magazine, (April22nd 02) since 1997 even pesticide makers have submitted more than a dozen human studies to the Environmental Protection Agency. Time reports as recently as nine years ago college students in Nebraska, America were offered $460 each to swallow a pill containing pesticide.

The results were found to cause brain damage, weakness and vomiting and the pesticide concerned, chlorpyrifos, was subsequently banned.

Genuine long term tests now appear to be virtually non existent. It seems to be ‘let’s get the drug out in the market and see what happens!’

A classic example is the new Merck drug Gardisil recently released when it was only approved less than a year ago. It is to suppose to prevent cervical cancer in young girls and women. There are already a long list of complaints and side effects from Gardisil all over the world, including a reported five deaths. The Adverse Event Reporting System (AERS) currently shows 82 reactions ranging from seizures to black-outs. It is still being heavily promoted and even being suggested as suitable for young boys. That would seem to be a desperate wild card to create an ‘ill for a pill’ and surely difficult to justify.

An important fact that seems to have been totally missed is nobody, anywhere, appears to have tested the long term reactions in the body of more than one drug being taken at the same time.

There is growing evidence that the public need to be much more aware of the dangerous possibilities in a cocktail of drugs.

If he thinks volunteering is a ‘duty’ it would be interesting to see if Professor Blakemore would offer himself as a guinea pig.

Michael is a naturopath with nearly 30 years experience and is now semi-retired. Michael has 13 published books on various health topics. Michael would be delighted to make contact.

Outrage! Preschoolers used as guinea pigs in psychotropic drug tests
by Mike Adams

As reveals, in 2005, Massachusetts General Hospital conducted an 8-week trial study that recruited children as young as four years old to be drugged and monitored, including having their blood drawn, to see if their tiny four-year-old bodies would tolerate a powerful psychotropic drug (Seroquel).

Here's more from This is an 8-week open-label study aimed at assessing the effectiveness and tolerability of Quetiapine, in the treatment of preschool children aged 4 to 6 years with bipolar and bipolar spectrum disorder. This is an exploratory, pilot study, seeking to determine whether Quetiapine is efficacious and well tolerated in the treatment of preschoolers with pediatric bipolar and bipolar spectrum disorder in this age group.

Ages Eligible for Study:4 Years - 6 Years, Genders Eligible for Study: Both

Subject must be able to participate in mandatory blood draws.

Chemical child abuse
In my view, this exploitation of young children for drug testing amounts to nothing less than chemical child abuse. What possible medical justification could these doctors, hospital staff and drug pushers have for prescribing mind-altering drugs to four-year-olds? Even the "disease" being treated here is entirely fictional. So-called "bi-polar disorder" was wholly invented by psychiatrists with strong financial ties to drug companies. The purpose of this disease is not to help children, but to sell drugs to anyone and everyone, including toddlers.
I often wonder when the rest of the country will wake up and notice that the mass-drugging of our nation's children has gone too far. Why isn't the mainstream media giving this front-page coverage? Why aren't lawmakers demanding an end to the chemical abuse of our children? Why isn't the FDA halting these trials on toddlers out of plain decency?

You already know the answer: Because they're all making money from this chemical assault on our nation's children. The doctors, hospitals, drug companies, psychiatrists and mainstream media all profit handsomely from the sales of mind-altering drugs to children. Ethics will never get in the way of old-fashioned greed, even when we're talking about the health and lives of four-year-olds.

Modern psychiatry, with all its false authority, drugging of children and rampant disease mongering, is an affront to all people who believe in honest medical science and basic human decency. Armed with the DSM-IV, on-the-take psychiatrists invent diseases out of thin air (like "bi-polar disorder"), then vote official treatment protocols into the reference books. Yet a recent review of such decision panels reveals that one hundred percent of the psychiatrists and doctors involved in such decisions have financial ties to the drug companies that coincidentally happen to manufacture the recommended drugs.

This is a life-threatening scandal of such proportion that it deserves a Dept. of Justice investigation, complete with criminal charges being brought against many of these so-called "doctors." To characterize this as a crime against humanity is not an exaggeration.

Blatant quackery
Let's face it: Modern psychiatry and its incessant disease mongering amounts to quackery at its worst. This group both invents the diseases, then hawks the snake oil that "treats" those diseases. And underneath it all, there's absolutely no physiological evidence of any such diseases at all. They can be diagnosed in children on a whim, based on a mere sixty seconds of casual observation combined with the biased opinion of a drug-pushing psychiatrist being bribed by Big Pharma.
This is not medicine, folks. And it's certainly not science. It's just plain medical fraud. Yet the whole of conventional medicine goes along with it, pretending that nothing is amiss. Doctors, hospitals, FDA bureaucrats, teachers and even many parents just pretend that all these mysterious brain chemistry diseases have spontaneously appeared in the world over the last ten years, suddenly afflicting tens of millions of children. And thank goodness the drug companies just happened to have invented all these treatment drugs at the exact same moment in history when these psychiatric diseases became so widespread! Imagine the odds...

Where are the skeptics on this issue? Where are the quack busters on the drugging of our children? The silence is deafening. They have nothing to say about the lack of science behind psychiatric disease mongering. They aren't skeptical at all. Clear thinking, it seems, isn't allowed when the conclusions might question the institutions of modern medicine. And thus, the skeptics reveal themselves as little more than purveyors of medical dogma; protectors of a drug-the-children medical cult that demands unquestioning obedience to its profit-minded beliefs.

Good science has long since left psychiatry. And if you want to know the true, horrifying history of the mental health industry, visit the Citizen's Commission on Human Rights. Prepare to be shocked.

Born psychotic
Psychiatry believes there is no child too young to diagnose as having psychiatric disorders. It won't be long before psychiatrists will be hanging out in delivery rooms, declaring children to be mentally diseased at birth (because they keep crying, obviously) and immediately injected with powerful mind-altering drugs. To psychiatry, human life has no value other than the possibility of creating a new paying customer, and every new birth is seen as another opportunity for dispensing profitable drugs.
There's no end to the evil that psychiatry might do in the years ahead. As long as society continues to give psychiatrists carte blanche to invent fictitious diseases, there is no human behavior, emotion or condition that's safe from being labeled a pathology. So-called "adult ADHD screening tests" label a whopping 80 percent of participants with the disease. Behavioral disorders screenings for children demonstrate similar numbers. And the things that can get you labeled as "diseased" are all too mundane: Feeling overwhelmed, feeling distracted by modern life, handling too many projects as once, being afraid of public speaking, feeling shy in social situations... gee, is there anyone who doesn't experience these sooner or later?

But it wasn't enough to attempt to drug up all the adults, you see. Modern psychiatry had to expand its markets, and that meant reaching younger and younger "customers." A couple of decades ago, they started drugging teens with antidepressant drugs. Then they attacked younger schoolchildren with Ritalin. Now they're targeting preschoolers, and the trend is clear: Children will soon be "born psychotic" if psychiatry has anything to do with it.

Years ago, the giant soda companies handed out baby bottles emblazed with the logos of their flagship soft drink products. The idea was to get mothers to feed their infants soda instead of infant formula, thereby altering the taste of the infant for life, creating a lifelong consumer of soft drinks. When I first uncovered this disturbing report, I thought it was perhaps the most evil thing a corporation could do to the health of infants. But now, psychiatry takes the prize.

Using four-year-olds as guinea pigs to test psychotropic drugs is more than merely unethical; it's predatory. It's Nazi-esque in its use of human beings for medical experiments, and yet it remains strangely acceptable across society. Child Protective Services does nothing. Hospitals gladly run the trials (they get paid, of course). Psychiatrists and doctors happily drug these children, observe them, then draw their blood, all in the name of corporate profits. And thus, they all join the long and sordid history of human medical experimentation that demonstrates ethics, or human lives, or plain decency will never get in the way of the forward march of medicine.

The complicity of conventional medicine is astounding. The American Medical Association, to my knowledge, says nothing skeptical about disease mongering by psychiatry. Few doctors see any problem at all, and fewer still have the courage to speak out. The FDA, which is supposed to protect people, gladly approves one psychotropic drug after another, even for use on toddlers. Lawmakers take campaign finance contributions from drug companies and look the other way, and the mainstream media continues publicizing fictitious diseases, lending them false credibility and creating customer demand for dangerous drugs.

Only a handful of doctors, authors, organizations and celebrities dare tell the truth on this issue, and they are singled out for incessant ridicule. Take Tom Cruise, for example. Although he speaks the truth about the drugging of children, he is endlessly dragged through the mud of public opinion simply because he expresses authentic passion for ending this chemical child abuse. Cruise should be applauded for his efforts, not ridiculed.

Let's hospitalize the psychiatrists
When it comes to mental health, there is one group of people in this country that truly needs to be drugged: The psychiatrists. Because to practice psychiatry today, and to support the mass drugging of toddlers and schoolchildren, is to demonstrate a deep-rooted madness that may justify chemical restraint. To drug toddlers, or to use them for medical experiments, should be rightly regarded as a crime. And there's no question whatsoever that the children of our nation would be safer, healthier and happier if the practice of modern psychiatry simply disappeared.
Besides, the real cause of depression, mood swings, emotional disorders or other so-called "diseases" mostly comes down to diet and lifestyle. Remove the food additives and refined sugars from a child's diet, and he returns to normal in about two weeks. Feed children healthy oils, live foods, whole grains and superfoods, and you automatically create energetic, curious, fast-learning children who need no drugs. Give children some sunshine, play time and some time with nature, and you get balanced, healthy children. It's no secret, it's just common sense.

But psychiatry has no common sense, and no one in the industry dares mention that most so-called mental disorders are really just caused by nutritional imbalances. Because to admit to the truth about the mental health of children would be to render their careers irrelevant. And no psychiatrist is going to commit career suicide by admitting that bi-polar disorder was just made up, or that toddlers need good food, not expensive drugs. Just like conventional doctors, psychiatrists have to protect their egos and revenue streams, and that means convincing parents that little Johnny has a brain chemistry imbalance and he'll have to take psychotropic drugs for life. The parents, as gullible as ever, naively go along with the scam, usually after being frightened into compliance by a psychiatrist who warns them what might happy to little Johnny of they don't drug him. "He might commit suicide," they're sternly warned.

Will the scams of modern medicine never cease? Is there no child too young to be targeted for medical experiments? Will the sinister desire for Big Pharma profits ever be balanced against basic human decency?

Probably not. The world has, indeed, gone half mad. And psychiatry is standing by, ready to drug everyone, regardless of their age or mental health status.

Human medical experimentation in modern times: How immigrants, poor people, minorities and children are modern-day guinea pigs for Big Pharma (part one)
by Dani Veracity

"The concentration camps were used as a huge laboratory for human experimentation," says Wolfgang Eckhart, professor of Historical Medicine at the University of Heidelberg in Germany. During the Holocaust, Bayer, Hoechst, BASF and other German pharmaceutical and chemical companies combined into a powerful cartel known as Interessengemeinschaft Farbenindustrie Aktiengesellschaft (IG Farben). As well as manufacturing everything from the deadly gas used to kill Holocaust victims, the gasoline used to move war vehicles and the explosives used to bomb enemies and conquer Europe, IG Farben was also trying its best to put a large number of highly profitable new drugs on the market and used concentration camp prisoners as human guinea pigs to do so.
Now, over 60 years after the Holocaust, we'd all like to think that society is above such cruelty, but in reality, human experimentation is still a common practice in modern medicine. Big Pharma operates by many of the same rules and motives as IG Farben did, and the test subjects are still the most vulnerable members of society -- the poor, immigrants, minority groups and children.

"Few doctors dispute that testing drugs on people is necessary. No amount of experimentation on laboratory rats will reliably show how a chemical will affect people," David Evans, et al. writes in the Bloomberg article "Drug Industry Human Testing Masks Death, Injury, Compliant FDA". Doctors have recognized the importance of human experimentation since the days of Hippocrates, though the ancient Greeks used it to benefit individual patients rather than science itself or any profit-driven industry. In 1833, William Beaumont, the army surgeon physician who pioneered gastric medicine with his study of a patient who'd sustained a gunshot wound that left his digestive system permanently exposed, established the importance of human experimentation as long as it is with the subject's consent.

However, sometimes it's difficult to find human test subjects, especially for studies involving pain or high risk. In the 1930s, research scientists discovered a solution to their difficulty in finding willing test subjects: Don't ask for their consent. In the infamous Tuskegee Syphilis Study, the United States Public Health Service diagnosed 200 black men with syphilis and, rather than treating or even informing them of their illness, used them as human guinea pigs to study the symptoms and progression of the disease. Today, as the University of Virginia Health System writes in its online documentary "Bad Blood", "The Tuskegee Syphilis Study has become a powerful symbol of racism in medicine, ethical misconduct in human research, and government abuse of the vulnerable."

During the Holocaust, IG Farben trumped the moral depravity of the Tuskegee Syphilis Study. Why use and abuse only 200 unwilling human test subjects when you can choose from the multitudes imprisoned in Nazi concentration camps? IG Farben callously used concentration camp inmates of all ages for painful, debilitating and often deadly experiments. Because of this, medical experimentation has become synonymous with injustice, cruelty, prejudice and total disregard for human life. Today, few people would try to justify or support IG Farben's medical experiements, but the sad truth is that modern human medical experimentation is in many ways similar to the horrors carried out by IG Farben.

Experimental drug testing centers
During the Nuremberg Trial, Dr. Waldemar Hoven, the Nazi doctor who gave lethal injections to his patients at Buchenwald, gave the following account of the medical experiments he and other concentration camp physicians performed: "It should be generally known, and especially in German scientific circles, that the SS did not have notable scientists at its disposal. It is clear that the experiments in the concentration camps with IG preparations only took place in the interests of the IG, which strived by all means to determine the effectiveness of these preparations. They let the SS deal with the -- shall I say -- dirty work in the concentration camps. It was not the IG’s intention to bring any of this out in the open, but rather to put up a smoke screen around the experiments so that ... they could keep any profits to themselves. Not the SS but the IG took the initiative for the concentration camp experiments."
Like IG Farben, Big Pharma doesn't perform its own experiments. Instead, it doles out the "dirty work" to experimental drug testing centers, some of which confine test subjects for portions of the study. In a Bloomberg article entitled "Miami Test Center Lures Poor Immigrants as Human Guinea Pigs", Argentinian immigrant Roberto Alvarez describes the eight days he spent confined to the Miami-based SFBC testing center: "It can be weird inside. It's like a jail."

In many ways, it is like a jail. In Miami's SFBC, which is the largest center of its kind in North America, test subjects sleep six to a room in double-decker beds. They even have uniforms to wear -- purple drawstring pants and T-shirts, much like the uniforms of concentrate camp victims. Dr. Hoven's criticism of IG Farben's experiments in Nazi concentration camps could easily be directed to Big Pharma's human experiments. In fact, it has. "Some test centers, FDA records show, have used poorly trained and unlicensed clinicians to give participants experimental drugs. The centers ... sometimes have incomplete or illegible records," David Evans, et al. writes.

Informed consent?
Even though the FDA has required informed consent of test subjects since 1981, many people believe that researchers often don't fully explain risks and potential side effects, so as not to deter potential test subjects. "Human subjects are in very short supply, so it's not surprising that under the growing pressure to find them, there are sometimes terrible ethical violations," says Marcia Angell, who was editor-in-chief of the New England Journal of Medicine from 1999 to 2000. The centers meet the legal requirements of informed consent by providing an informed consent form, but the form may be written in a language the potential subjects do not fully understand because they are immigrants, who make up a large portion of human test subjects. Even if they are written in the subjects' native language, the forms may be long and dominated by obscure technical jargon. In "Drug Industry Human Testing Masks Death, Injury, Compliant FDA", Argentinian immigrant Roberto Alvarez admits, "The thing I pay most attention to when filling this thing out is this: How much it pays and how long it takes. I don't read them too carefully," while skimming through a 12-page consent form.
The Nazi doctors didn't even bother with consent forms. Why waste time when you can just force-feed concentration camp inmates a pill or inject them with an experimental substance? "I remember one of the SS doctors holding my jaw open and forcing pills down my throat," Auschwitz survivor Zoe Polanska Palmer told BBC Radio 4 reporter Mark Handscomb in It's My Story. Granted, giving potential subjects long consent forms written in language they can't fully understand is better than shoving pills down someone's throat, but it still seems unethical and it can still put human life at risk.

Even Kenneth Lasseter, the executive medical director of the SFBC experimental drug testing center, admitted in the Bloomberg article, "It's clear to me. Perhaps it needs to be explained more." Lasseter was speaking of the consent form for an experimental drug that may treat overactive bladders. "The goal of this study is to determine the highest daily dose of TD-6301 that will not cause an undesired increase in heart rate." Yes, that wording may be clear to Lasseter, but it may not be clear to the average test subject. "They're saying it backwards to a population that may not be of the highest education level. The real purpose of the study is, 'We're going to make you sick in order to find out at what level you get sick when given this drug.' Obviously, they don't want to say that," University of Miami bioethicist Ken Goodman told David Evans, et al..

Preying on immigrants and other poverty-stricken individuals
During the Holocaust, the Nazis confined the marginalized sectors of society -- Jews (including children), gypsies, homosexuals, the mentally ill and the mentally retarded -- into camps that became human guinea pig-filled laboratories for IG Farben's experimental drug studies. Today, marginalized populations still make up a large portion of experimental drug test subjects; however, socioeconomic factors, rather than concentration camp authorities, make them more likely to sell their bodies to Big Pharma.
It's no accident that SFBC, the largest experimental drug testing center in North America, is located in Miami. According to the St. Petersburg Times, Miami-Dade County "is the only county in the country where more than half the residents are foreign-born." After immigrants come to Miami from countries like Cuba, Colombia, Haiti, Nicaragua, Jamaica, Argentina and Mexico, they need money, yet experience the employment limitations that little or no fluency in English, little education, unfamiliarity, prejudice and, in some cases, lack of a work permit brings. With few other options available, these immigrants find one of the few legal jobs that doesn't require any amount of English proficiency or education and may even accept forged social security cards: Professional guinea pig.

Many immigrants participate in multiple, simultaneous drug studies. Combining these experimental drugs is a recipe for disaster "because researchers don't know how the different chemicals interact or what side effects the mix may have on a person," according to the Bloomberg article "Miami Test Center Lures Poor Immigrants as Human Guinea Pigs". However, given the fact that some studies only pay $25 per day, what else are the truly marginalized subjects supposed to do? "It's not the job I would choose, but financial circumstances require you to do it sometimes,'' Venezuelan immigrant Oscar Cabanerio told Bloomberg.

Human medical experimentation on children: The exploitation of poor children by Big Pharma (part two)
by Dani Veracity

The crimes committed against children define some of the Holocaust's most morally despicable horrors. In It's My Story, Palmer told Handscomb of the abuses she received as a 13-year-old at Auschwitz. As a result of the damage done to her body by the contraceptive drug experiments forced upon her at Auschwitz, she had to undergo several painful surgeries immediately following the war and, even after the surgeries, Palmer remained unable to bear children for the rest of her life. Today, in her 70s, Palmer has cancer.
Now, no one can say for certain whether or not Palmer's cancer is linked to the medical experiments she underwent roughly 60 years earlier, but it is a likely possibility. Exposure to drugs and other chemicals produces extremely negative effects on children, especially those who are even younger than Palmer was during the experiments.

In the April 2004 Pediatrics article "Trends in Environmentally Related Childhood Diseases," Tracey Woodruff, et al. writes, "Children may be particularly susceptible to exposures in utero or during early life because the fetus' or young child’s physiology is undergoing rapid development, such as rapid cell division, changing metabolic activity, and evolving hormonal systems."

With this in mind, running experimental drug studies on children seems especially dangerous and thus horrendous, yet it is still a common occurrence even in modern society. In her Nov. 30, 2004 BBC News article "Guinea Pig Kids" and her subsequent documentary of the same name, Jamie Doran reveals New York City's Administration for Children's Services' (ACS) little-known practice of using HIV-positive children kept in the city's orphanages and foster care homes as human guinea pigs for experimental AIDS drugs. For his documentary and article, Doran interviewed Jacklyn Hoerger, a pediatric nurse who worked at the Catholic Church-run Incarnation Children's Home in Harlem. Hoerger maintains that social work authorities never told her that the drugs she and the other Incarnation employees were administering the orphans and foster care children were experimental. "We were told that if they were vomiting, if they lost their ability to walk, if they were having diarrhea, if they were dying, then all of this was because of their HIV infection," she said to BBC.

In reality, these symptoms were due to the experimental drugs that the workers were giving them. When BBC asked him his opinion on the experimental drug studies done on New York City's orphans and foster children, University of Berkeley visiting scholar Dr. David Rasnick explained, "We're talking about serious, serious side effects. These children are going to be absolutely miserable. They're going to have cramps, diarrhea and their joints are going to swell up. They're going to roll around the ground and you can't touch them." According to BBC reporter Doran, Dr. Rasnick went on to call the experimental AIDS drugs that were given to the children "lethal." If children refused to take them by mouth, workers at Incarnation force-fed them the drugs through feeding tubes inserted into their stomachs.

It's no doubt that these HIV-positive and AIDS symptomatic children needed medication. The question is why were they given experimental drugs, rather than the same medications that a child living in an expensive brownstone on the Upper East Side would have received? In the words of Alliance for Human Research Protection spokesperson Vera Sherav: "They tested these highly experimental drugs. Why didn't they provide the children with the current best treatment? That's the question we have. Why did they expose them to risk and pain, when they were helpless? Would they have done those experiments with their own children? I doubt it." Furthermore -- when you consider the fact that, according to the BBC article, 99 percent of the children in New York City children's homes are either African American or Hispanic -- issues of race and prejudice also come into play.

Hoerger told BBC that she didn't realize what was going on until she later took two children from Incarnation home as foster children. As a trained pediatric nurse, she decided to take the two children she was caring for in her home off the medications given to them while at Incarnation. This resulted in "an immediate boost to their health and happiness," according to BBC. However, soon after her decision, ACS came to her home and took the children out of her care. She was then labeled a child abuser in court and, after that, she never saw the children again.

Performing medical experiments on children is a serious accusation. Realizing this, while working on his documentary and article, Doran went to Incarnation for its side of the story, but it only referred him to its public relations firm. The expensive Manhattan firm told him that it didn't give comments about what goes on inside the home. In light of these accusations, former ACS Commissioner John B. Mattingly ordered a comprehensive review of all ACS records. By early April, based on the records they had examined, ACS staff members revealed just how common the experimentation Hoerger described at Incarnation was throughout the city:

Between 1988 and 2001, 465 foster care children and orphans were used in experimental AIDS drug trials.
Most of these children participated before 1996.
The majority of HIV-positive children living in New York City were diagnosed from the mid-1980s through the mid-1990s.
The highest number of AIDS-related deaths among New York City children happened from 1990 to 1995.
The 465 children used in the studies were in approximately two dozen different independent agencies operating under contract to ACS.
Then, on Apr. 22, 2005, ACS sent out a press release stating that it had "contracted with the Vera Institute of Justice to conduct an independent review of ACS policy and practice regarding the enrollment of HIV-positive children in foster care in clinical drug trials during the late 1980s and 1990s." It also asserted: "The last child to enter an HIV-related clinical trial while in foster care did so in 2001. There are no ongoing HIV-related clinical trials involving children in foster care in New York City." This directly contradicts the conclusion Doran writes in his 2004 article: "The experiments continue to be carried out on the poor children of New York City."
ACS maintains that it ordered the studies with the best interest of HIV-positive children in mind. "The purpose of the drug trials was to develop effective treatments for pediatric AIDS, at a time when there were no known, FDA-approved medications available to treat children with the disease, and many children were dying," reads the press release. As proof of the gravity of the AIDS crisis ACS faced when conducting the trials, the press release cites the following figures from the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene:

Out of the 13,927 HIV-positive children under age 13 nationwide prior to 2003 (according to CDC estimates), the percentage of HIV-positive children in New York City was "the highest by far of any jurisdiction in the country."
From 1979 through 2003, 3,634 children living in New York City and under the age of 13 were HIV positive.
Even though ACS believes that its decision to give the experimental AIDS drugs to the 465 foster children and orphans was not wrong, it is nevertheless ordering the Vera Institute to conduct the independent study, so as to assure the public and the media. As Commissioner Mattingly explained, "We are taking this step because, while we believe that the policies in place at the time reflected good practice, we acknowledge the need for transparency in all of our dealings with the public. In order for us to be effective in our mission to protect New York City’s children, we must have a sense of mutual trust with those families we seek to serve." According to the press release, the Vera Institute "will research ACS policies and procedures to ensure that HIV-positive children and children with AIDS who were in the care of ACS were appropriately enrolled in the correct clinical drug trials." This includes finding out whether:
ACS obtained consent from the children's parents or other guardians before enrolling them in the experimental drug studies.
The children enrolled in the trials met the medical criteria to do so.
ACS adequately and properly monitored the children who were enrolled.
Enrollment was "appropriate based on sound medical knowledge at the time."
As of an Oct. 5, 2005 update to its web site regarding the analysis, the Vera Institute still had not completed its investigation. It writes that it is "assembling an advisory board of medical, child welfare, legal, and community experts to review our findings and assure the public of the independence of our research." Meanwhile, in its description of the project, the Vera Institute acknowledges both sides of the controversy:
"Opponents of involving foster children in clinical trials -- where the risks and benefits are often unknown -- worry that this highly vulnerable population may be too-easily neglected or even exploited. When it comes to children of color, in particular, they point to historic examples where the health care system has acted in discriminatory and prejudicial ways.

"On the other hand, those who favor including foster children in clinical trials argue that enrollment can provide high quality care and cutting-edge medicine to children who otherwise would receive only routine medical services. In this view, excluding foster children unfairly bars them from the best the medical profession has to offer."

It will be very interesting to see the Vera Institute's findings -- which are, according to the Institute itself -- "part of Vera's mission to improve government systems." "We hope that the information we provide will contribute to the public debate that will help shape future policies regarding clinical trials and children in government custody," the site reads. On a national level, between 12,000 and 13,000 children under the age of 13 have participated in National Institutes of Health-sponsored AIDS drug trials from 1986 to 2005.

Even though the Vera Institute's findings are not yet complete, the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Apr. 8, 2005 cancellation of its Children's Health Environmental Exposure Research Study (CHEERS) shows what a combination of intense opposition from environmental and public health groups (as well as a little help from Congress) can do to end experimentation on poverty-stricken children.

Child medical experiments at the EPA
In October 2005, the American Chemistry Council gave the EPA $2.1 million to study how children ranging from infancy to three years old ingest, inhale or absorb chemicals. Like IG Farben was for the German pharmaceutical companies of Nazi Germany, the American Chemistry Council acts much like a front group for chemical industry bigwigs like Bayer (which was incidentally also a member of IG Farben), BP, Chevron, Dow, DuPont, Exxon, Honeywell, 3M, Monsanto and Procter & Gamble. Studies have already proven that the chemicals made by these companies have long-term effects on children and adults. A short, two-year study like CHEERS would of course fail to reveal these long-term effects and the American Chemistry Council could then publicize these findings as "proof" that its chemicals were safe.
This represents an ethical problem in itself, but the demographic of the proposed child test subjects worsen the issue, especially in light of the use of foster children (the majority of which were African-American and Hispanic) by both the New York City ACS and the Tuskegee Syphilis Study. According to the EPA's original study proposal, portions of which were reprinted by the Organic Consumers Association, test subjects would be chosen from six health clinics in Duvall County, Fla. Given the characteristics of these health centers, page 23 of the study proposal itself highlights that minority children from low-income families would be the likely test subjects: "Although all Duval County citizens are eligible to use the [health care] centers, they primarily serve individuals with lower incomes. In the year 2000, seventy five percent of the users of the clinics for pregnancy issues were at or below the poverty level ... The percentage of births to individuals classified as black in the U.S. Census is higher at these three hospitals than for the County as a whole."

In fact, the health care centers report that 51 percent of their births are to non-Caucasian mothers, and that 62 percent of mothers received only elementary school or secondary school educations. If the EPA were to have proceeded with CHEERS, children born to these health care centers would have been used as human guinea pigs simply because they belong to minority groups and poverty-stricken families. In return for allowing their children to be exposed to toxic chemicals, the families were to have received $970, a free video camera, a T-shirt and a framed certificate of appreciation.

Fortunately, the EPA decided not to go through with CHEERS, once U.S. Senators Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) and Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) decided to put their feet down and block President Bush's nomination of Stephen Johnson for head of the EPA. In his Apr. 8 statement, Johnson reversed the EPA's earlier decision to await a report from an independent science advisory panel before making a decision about CHEERS. He explained his decision as being a result of public and media "misrepresentations" of the study:

"Last fall, in light of questions about the study design, I directed that all work on the study stop immediately and requested an independent review. Since that time, many misrepresentations about the study have been made. EPA senior scientists have briefed me on the impact these misrepresentations have had on the ability to proceed with the study.

"I have concluded that the study cannot go forward, regardless of the outcome of the independent review. EPA must conduct quality, credible research in an atmosphere absent of gross misrepresentation and controversy."

Boxer, who says that she will continue to oppose testing toxins on humans, called CHEERS an "immoral program to test pesticides on children" and "a reprehensible idea that never should have made it out of the boardroom" in her statement to the Associated Press following Johnson's decision. Luckily, unlike Tuskegee, the study was stopped before anyone got hurt.

Human medical experimentation in modern times: Silencing the victims (part three)
by Dani Veracity

Even though it is openly denying any wrongdoing, New York City's ACS (Administration for Children's Services) deserves some credit for taking the effort to investigate its past involvement in medical experimentation on humans and contracting the Vera Institute of Justice to conduct an independent review. IG Farben "daughter" companies like modern Bayer, though openly denying connection to IG Farben's war crimes, have also made an effort to help human medical experiment victims. These companies have worked with the German government to set up a compensation fund for those Holocaust survivors who lived through the gruesome medical experiments to which they were subjected by their captors.
According to a Bayer spokesperson who was quoted in Handscomb's It's My Story, "The company's contribution to this fund amounted to more than £40 million (over $70 million)." On the other hand, as Handscomb points out, some Holocaust victims have had to campaign to receive money from this fund for decades. Palmer, for example, fought to receive compensation for 28 years, yet received nothing from authorities until her story received media attention. As Handscomb writes, "Within weeks of the authorities being contacted by the BBC, Zoe received a check for a little over £2,000 (approximately $3,500) from the German compensation fund."

In contrast to both ACS and Bayer, SFBC is both failing to acknowledge wrongdoing and trying to silence test subjects. According to a Nov. 20 Seattle Times article by original Bloomberg drug experiment exposé authors Evans and Michael Smith, SFBC threatened three of the experimental drug test subjects they interviewed for their Bloomberg series. According to the threatened participants who now wish to remain anonymous, shortly after the Bloomberg articles were published, SFBC placed them in separate rooms with SFBC officials, including Chief Executive Arnold Hantman. While keeping them confined, Hantman used profanity and told the foreign-born participants that he would call the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and have them deported if they didn't agree to sign statements saying that the Bloomberg reporters who had interviewed them hadn't clearly said they would publish an article or use their photographs, thus undermining the credibility of the Bloomberg exposés. Though they signed the statements, the test subjects told Smith and Evans that they only did so out of fear of getting arrested and deported, and that they would be willing to tell their story to U.S. Senate investigators.

SFBC denies the information revealed in the Bloomberg articles "Drug Industry Human Testing Masks Death, Injury, Compliant FDA" and "Miami Test Center Lures Poor Immigrants as Human Guinea Pigs". In a conference call, SFBC President Lisa Krinsky said of the articles, "Approximately 99 percent of the information that was documented regarding SFBC is a total fabrication, and the remaining one percent was entirely misquoted."

If SFBC officials in fact threatened the test study participants, it is injustice upon injustice. As Arthur Caplan, director of the Center for Bioethics at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, explained in the Seattle Times article, "It's clearly beyond the pale to bully and coerce people because they reported ethical violations. It's simply heinous to try and cover up misdeeds with these actions."

On this note, though human medical experimentation is a valuable part of science, its ethics are questionable at best. For this reason, it is important for the Office for Human Research Protections, organizations like the Vera Institute of Justice and human rights activist groups to make sure that test subjects are not being exploited, especially when these subjects include children, immigrants, poor people and other groups that are especially susceptible to exploitation. Humanity and the public good should always be given priority over profit.
