Unconscionable Merck operative tried to bury scientific study revealing harm caused by Gardasil

Their study was extensively peer reviewed and accepted for publication without revisions. And, suddenly it was pulled, according to The Vaccine Reaction:

“When Vaccine first pulled the article, the publisher offered no explanation, saying the article was ‘temporarily removed.’

Weeks later, the page where the article used to be was updated to read:

‘This article has been withdrawn at the request of the Editor-in-Chief due to serious concerns regarding the scientific soundness of the article. Review by the Editor-in-Chief and evaluation by outside experts, confirmed that the methodology is seriously flawed, and the claims that the article makes are unjustified. As an international peer-reviewed journal we believe it is our duty to withdraw the article from further circulation, and to notify the community of this issue.’“

And guess who the Editor-in-Chief was? Here’s that info as reported by The Vaccine Reaction:

“According to Health Impact News, the medical journal’s action to withdraw the article was a decision made by editor-in-chief Gregory Poland, MD. Dr. Poland is Vaccine’s editor-in-chief, who has ‘pro-vaccine’ relationships, according to Health Impact News. His profile has a title of ‘the chairman of a safety evaluation committee for investigational vaccine trials being conducted by Merck Research Laboratories’ and ‘offers consultative advice on new vaccine development to Merck & Co. Inc.’ He has conducted four studies in direct affiliation with Merck, including a pro-HPV trial in 2005.

Adding another layer to the story is the fact that the Gardasil mouse study was first submitted to the Journal of Neuroimmunology.  That journal rejected the study after nine months of editorial review. Coincidently, Michael Racke, MD, the journal’s editor-in-chief, happens to receive personal compensation for activities with a number of drug firms, including EMD Serono Inc., a subsidiary of Merck KGaA“

The pharmaceutical industry, like the chemical industry, the bio agriculture industry, nanotech folks and countless other liars aren’t interested in the scientific method. Just the love of money. And that is the root of all evil, isn’t it?
