MMR vaccines called one of the ‘ greatest scandals in medical history ‘ by former Chief Scientific Officer of the UK’s Department of Health

The former chief scientific officer for Britain’s Department of Health who was responsible for deciding if medicines and vaccines were safe for use among the general public says his former employer is guilty of “utterly inexplicable complacency” regarding the mumps, measles and rubella shot.

The UK’s Daily Mail Online reports that Dr. Peter Fletcher, who was his country’s chief scientific officer in the late 1970s, said if it is ultimately proven that the MMR vaccine is linked to autism, “the refusal by governments to evaluate the risks properly will make this one of the greatest scandals in medical history.”

He also said that, after he agreed to become an expert witness in court cases – mostly lawsuits – involving drug safety on behalf of parents with vaccine-injured children, he receive a wealth of information contained in thousands of documents relating to cases he believed the public had a right to see.

Data are steadily accumulating
Fletcher, the Daily Mail Online noted, has borne witness to a “steady accumulation of evidence” from scientists around the world that the MMR vaccine is indeed linked to brain injury in some children.

However, “there are very powerful people in positions of great authority in Britain and elsewhere who have staked their reputations and careers on the safety of MMR and they are willing to do almost anything to protect themselves,” he said.

The MMR vaccine-autism link was first discovered by Dr. Andrew Wakefield, a former gastroenterologist and medical researcher, in 1998. His research findings have been savagely attacked by all the usual suspects – governments, Big Pharma, traditional medicine and science – though he maintains today that his findings were sound and that more research is needed to document the effects of the vaccine.

Fletcher’s warning come amid reports that the British government was planning to introduce an additional vaccine for pneumococcal meningitis for babies, with vaccination to begin next April. Also, the government is considering recommending the vaccine for children under two years of age – not to protect them but to protect parents and other adults they may come into contact with.

Fletcher first expressed concern about the MMR vaccine in 2001, the Daily Mail Online reported. He said at the time that safety trials before the vaccine was introduced in his country were not adequate. And now he says he is afraid that what he suspected is becoming more apparent, given the rising number of autism cases around the work and a growing understanding, scientifically, of autism-related bowel disease, which ultimately convinced Fletcher the vaccine was to blame.

“Clinical and scientific data is steadily accumulating that the live measles virus in MMR can cause brain, gut and immune system damage in a subset of vulnerable children,” he said.

‘Why doesn’t the government take this seriously?’
“There’s no one conclusive piece of scientific evidence, no ‘smoking gun’, because there very rarely is when adverse drug reactions are first suspected,” Fletcher continued, as reported by the Daily Mail. “When vaccine damage in very young children is involved, it is harder to prove the links.

“But it is the steady accumulation of evidence, from a number of respected universities, teaching hospitals and laboratories around the world, that matters here. There’s far too much to ignore. Yet government health authorities are, it seems, more than happy to do so,” Fletcher added, saying he found “this official complacency utterly inexplicable” in light of the global explosion in autism cases.

“When scientists first raised fears of a possible link between mad cow disease and an apparently new, variant form of CJD they had detected in just 20 or 30 patients, everybody panicked and millions of cows were slaughtered,” said Fletcher.

“Yet there has been a tenfold increase in autism and related forms of brain damage over the past 15 years, roughly coinciding with MMR’s introduction, and an extremely worrying increase in childhood inflammatory bowel diseases and immune disorders such as diabetes, and no one in authority will even admit it’s happening, let alone try to investigate the causes.”

He added there just was “no way” a tenfold increase in autism cases could be the result of doctors better recognizing the condition.

“It is highly likely that at least part of this increase is a [vaccine-related] problem.” he said. “But whatever it is, why isn’t the Government taking this massive public health problem more seriously?”

Powerful forces threaten Houston film festival to pull VAXXED documentary… ‘heavy handed censorship’ by government officials who resort to financial extortion to shut down public screening

As the war on the truth about vaccines continues to heighten, organizers of film festivals are starting to speak out about the incredible censorship and intimidation tactics being used against them to try to silence this independent film. VAXXED: From Cover-Up to Catastrophe unveils the true story of CDC scientist and whistleblower Dr. William Thompson, who publicly confessed to taking part in organized scientific fraud at the CDC to conceal the link between vaccines and autism.

Now, in what is being described as “criminal conduct and extortion,” the Chairman of TEAM WORLDFEST in Houston describes how his film festival was aggressively threatened in a criminal manner by government officials to pull the film:

[A]fter very threatening calls late yesterday (Monday) from high Houston Government officials (the first and only time they have ever called in 49 years) – we had no choice but to drop the film. Heavy handed censorship, to say the least… they both threatened severe action against the festival if we showed it, so it is out. Their actions would have cost us more than $100,000 in grants.

Natural News has learned that Team Worldfest may have reversed this decision and decided to show the film anyway. We are still working on confirming this (check back for updates).

Unabomber’s Manifesto

Unabomber’s Manifesto

(Source: well.sf.ca.us ) Unabomber’s Manifesto The following is full text of the Unabomber’s Manifesto. _________________________________________________________________ INTRODUCTION 1. The Industrial Revolution and its consequences have been a disaster for the human race. They have greatly increased the life-expectancy of those of us who live in “advanced” countries, but they have destabilized society, have made life unfulfilling, have subjected human beings to indignities, have led to widespread psychological suffering (in the Third World to physical suffering as well) and have inflicted severe damage on the natural world. The continued development of technology will worsen the situation. It will certainly subject human beings to greater indignities and inflict greater damage on the natural world, it will probably lead to greater social disruption and psychological suffering, and it may lead to increased physical suffering even in “advanced” countries. 2. The industrial-technological system may survive or it may break down. If it survives, it MAY eventually achieve a low level of physical and psychological suffering, but only after passing through a long and very painful period of adjustment and only at the cost of permanently reducing human beings and many other living organisms to engineered products and mere cogs in the social machine. Furthermore, if the system survives, the consequences will be inevitable: There is no way of reforming or modifying the system so as to prevent it from depriving people of dignity and autonomy. 3. If the system breaks down the consequences will still be very painful. But the bigger the system grows the more disastrous the results of its breakdown will be, so if it is to break down it had best break down sooner rather than later. 4. We therefore advocate a revolution against the industrial system. This revolution may or may not make use of violence: it may be sudden or it may be a relatively gradual process spanning a few decades. We can’t predict any of that. But we do outline in a very general way the measures that those who hate the industrial system should take in order to prepare the way for a revolution against that form of society. This is not to be a POLITICAL revolution. Its object will be to overthrow not governments but the economic and technological basis of the present society. 5. In this article we give attention to only some of the negative developments that have grown out of the industrial-technological system. Other such developments we mention only briefly or ignore altogether. This does not mean that we regard these other developments as unimportant. For practical reasons we have to confine our discussion to areas that have received insufficient public attention or in which we have something new to say. For example, since there are well-developed environmental and wilderness movements, we have written very little about environmental degradation or the destruction of wild nature, even though we consider these to be highly important.
