Vaccine News – Vaccine-Autism Link Study is Allegedly Part of Trump Administration’s $54 Billion Budget Cut

Vaccine-Autism Link Study is Allegedly Part of Trump Administration’s $54 Billion Budget Cut
Regin OlimberioMar 13, 2017 12:50 AM EDT
President Donald Trump’s stance to study the alleged link between vaccine and autism stirs fear of hampered study and minimal funding among health sector. A previous study has already debunked the myth that vaccines can cause autism but Trump opened the doors to further research. Advocates of mass vaccination fear that they have to turn their energy defending vaccines instead of moving forward with a medical breakthrough.
To recall, the renewed vigor started in 2008 when the National Vaccine Advisory Committee pushed for a safety agenda about the issue. Parents were assured of transparent access to results of research about vaccine’s link to autism. The agenda resurged at the start of Trump administration.
Health experts argued that Trump’s policy might delay or hamper the administration of vaccines. By doing so, children will be more susceptible to natural infections. This heightened risk can occur even at small delay between vaccine shots.
Another implication could be the difficulty in availing health insurance being stipulated under Affordable Care Act or Obamacare. The said law assures health coverage for pre-existing condition. Health insurance companies can simply imply that autism is not part of coverage since it is debatably not pre-existing but aggravated by vaccines. Another law that will suffer a setback is Disabilities Education Act that ensures education for autistic children, Live Science reported.

Vaccines and Autism Revisited — The Hannah Poling Case
Paul A. Offit, M.D. N Engl J Med 2008
On April 11, 2008, the National Vaccine Advisory Committee took an unusual step: in the name of transparency, trust, and collaboration, it asked members of the public to help set its vaccine-safety research agenda for the next 5 years. Several parents, given this opportunity, expressed concern that vaccines might cause autism — a fear that had recently been fueled by extensive media coverage of a press conference involving a 9-year-old girl named Hannah Poling.
When she was 19 months old, Hannah, the daughter of Jon and Terry Poling, received five vaccines — diphtheria–tetanus–acellular pertussis, Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib), measles–mumps–rubella (MMR), varicella, and inactivated polio. At the time, Hannah was interactive, playful, and communicative. Two days later, she was lethargic, irritable, and febrile. Ten days after vaccination, she developed a rash consistent with vaccine-induced varicella.
Months later, with delays in neurologic and psychological development, Hannah was diagnosed with encephalopathy caused by a mitochondrial enzyme deficit. Hannah’s signs included problems with language, communication, and behavior — all features of autism spectrum disorder. Although it is not unusual for children with mitochondrial enzyme deficiencies to develop neurologic signs between their first and second years of life, Hannah’s parents believed that vaccines had triggered her encephalopathy. They sued the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) for compensation under the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) and won.
On March 6, 2008, the Polings took their case to the public. Standing before a bank of microphones from several major news organizations, Jon Poling said that “the results in this case may well signify a landmark decision with children developing autism following vaccinations.”1 For years, federal health agencies and professional organizations had reassured the public that vaccines didn’t cause autism. Now, with DHHS making this concession in a federal claims court, the government appeared to be saying exactly the opposite. Caught in the middle, clinicians were at a loss to explain the reasoning behind the VICP’s decision.
The Poling case is best understood in the context of the decision-making process of this unusual vaccine court. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, American lawyers successfully sued pharmaceutical companies claiming that vaccines caused a variety of illnesses, including unexplained coma, sudden infant death syndrome, Reye’s syndrome, transverse myelitis, mental retardation, and epilepsy. By 1986, all but one manufacturer of the diphtheria–tetanus–pertussis vaccine had left the market. The federal government stepped in, passing the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, which included the creation of the VICP. Funded by a federal excise tax on each dose of vaccine, the VICP compiled a list of compensable injuries. If scientific studies supported the notion that vaccines caused an adverse event — such as thrombocytopenia after receipt of measles-containing vaccine or paralysis after receipt of oral polio vaccine — children and their families were compensated quickly, generously, and fairly. The number of lawsuits against vaccine makers decreased dramatically.

Whooping cough increase related to current vaccine
Friday, 24 April 2015 Dani Cooper ABC
The move to an artificially created vaccine for whooping cough is behind an increase in cases of the deadly disease in the US, a new study suggests.
The findings highlight the need to do similar research in Australia where whooping cough cases have spiralled upward in the past decade, co-author Associate Professor Manoj Gambhir, from the University of Monash, says.
In 2012 the US saw the highest number of pertussis (whooping cough) cases since 1955.
At the same time there has been a shift in the age group reporting the largest number of cases from adolescents to 7 to 11 year olds.
In the paper, published today in PLOS Computational Biology, Gambhir and colleagues use mathematical modelling of 60 years of pertussis disease data to determine what best explains this increase.
Their research finds the level of protection of the currently used acellular vaccine is lower than that of the previously used whole-cell vaccine.
Gambhir says the original whole-cell vaccine developed in 1942 was very effective.
Following introduction of vaccination, the reported disease incidence in the US dropped from 150 cases per 100,000 each year before 1940, to the point of near elimination in the mid-1970s when there were just 0.5 reported cases per 100,000 population.
“Now in the past decade we have seen a rise from that low to about 10-20 cases per 100,000,” says Gambhir.
Gambhir, who led the study with Dr Thomas Clark at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in Atlanta, Georgia, and Professor Neil Ferguson, of the Imperial College London in the UK, says while the number of cases remains low the trend is upward.
“It’s the sort of five-year by five-year rise that is the concern because the worry is it could go back to those levels at which we would start seeing infant deaths,” he says.
New vaccine to blame
Gambhir says in 1991 researchers developed a new vaccine to address public concerns that the whooping cough vaccine caused a reaction in some children.

Study – A Change in Vaccine Efficacy and Duration of Protection Explains Recent Rises in Pertussis Incidence in the United States
Published: April 23, 2015
PDF version
Abstract
Over the past ten years the incidence of pertussis in the United States (U.S.) has risen steadily, with 2012 seeing the highest case number since 1955. There has also been a shift over the same time period in the age group reporting the largest number of cases (aside from infants), from adolescents to 7–11 year olds. We use epidemiological modelling and a large case incidence dataset to explain the upsurge. We investigate several hypotheses for the upsurge in pertussis cases by fitting a suite of dynamic epidemiological models to incidence data from the National Notifiable Disease Surveillance System (NNDSS) between 1990–2009, as well as incidence data from a variety of sources from 1950–1989. We find that: the best-fitting model is one in which vaccine efficacy and duration of protection of the acellular pertussis (aP) vaccine is lower than that of the whole-cell (wP) vaccine, (efficacy of the first three doses 80% [95% CI: 78%, 82%] versus 90% [95% CI: 87%, 94%]), increasing the rate at which disease is reported to NNDSS is not sufficient to explain the upsurge and 3) 2010–2012 disease incidence is predicted well. In this study, we use all available U.S. surveillance data to: 1) fit a set of mathematical models and determine which best explains these data and 2) determine the epidemiological and vaccine-related parameter values of this model. We find evidence of a difference in efficacy and duration of protection between the two vaccine types, wP and aP (aP efficacy and duration lower than wP). Future refinement of the model presented here will allow for an exploration of alternative vaccination strategies such as different age-spacings, further booster doses, and cocooning.

Vaccine Detox: Do This IMMEDIATELY if Baby Regresses after Shots
by Sarah Updated: December 23, 2016
When it comes to childhood immunizations, the approach with the least long term risk to your child’s health is refusing the shots in the first place. It’s a better strategy to avoid the myriad of vaccine related health problems from the start rather than scrambling for an effective vaccine detox to unwind the immune system damage later.
You can always get vaccinated, but undoing vaccine damage is a challenging process. Procrastination is a virtue when it comes to shots!
Science is not on your side if you choose to vaccinate, contrary to the drone of government officials, the media, misinformed school officials, and even pediatricians, some of whom are fearful of reprisal if they speak out with a differing opinion on the subject.
Emergency Vaccine Detox if a Child Regresses after Vaccination
Loss of eye contact, unresponsiveness to sounds or other stimuli, and the sudden inability to walk are common observations by parents of young children after a round of vaccinations. They are so common, in fact, that more than 1 in 50 children is currently on the autistic spectrum. This is up from one in every 300 children when my first child was born in 1998. In the 1980s, about 1 in every 10,000 children was autistic. Scientific projections are that 1 in every 2 boys will be on the spectrum by 2030 at the current rate of growth.
What should you do if you decide to vaccinate and your child suddenly starts to regress?
Developmental pediatrician Dr. Mary Megson of the University of Virginia has answers for you based on her extensive clinical experience treating autistic children for over 25 years.
Dr. Megson has developed a framework for treating autism based on the piece of the puzzle she has discovered clinically – blocked Vitamin A pathways in the brain.

Six Reasons To Say NO to Vaccination
by Sarah Updated: February 25, 2017
Vaccination is an extremely controversial topic these days. Whatever side of the aisle you may fall with regard to your opinion about vaccination, one thing is for certain. The choice to vaccinate or not vaccinate is a decision that has the potential to greatly impact the health of you and most importantly, your children for the rest of their lives.
As a result, this decision should not be taken lightly and it should not be made in a vacuum.   In other words, don’t just take your pediatrician’s word that shots are safe.    It is possible for doctors to be wrong.    They are human, after all.   In reality, your doctor is simply parroting the standard line about vaccination from the American Medical Association (AMA) playbook.    If you think you are getting their honest assessment, think again.
You should neither assume shots are dangerous just because your friend down the street doesn’t vaccinate her kids.

Govt. Still Pushing HPV Vaccine on Kids a Decade after JW Exposed Deadly Side Effects
MARCH 09, 2017
A decade after Judicial Watch exposed the dangers of a government-backed cervical cancer vaccine, a federal lawsuit highlights its perilous side effects including paralysis, seizures, nausea and death. Litigation was initiated by disgruntled parents because the government is still pushing the hazardous vaccine, manufactured by pharmaceutical giant Merck, on children as young as nine years old to treat a sexually transmitted disease.
The vaccine is called Gardasil and in the last ten years Judicial Watch has uncovered troves of government records documenting its harmful side effects. The vaccine was scandalously fast-tracked by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and was ardently promoted by the Obama administration as a miracle shot that can prevent certain strains of cervical cancer caused by Human Papillomavirus (HPV). Instead it’s been linked to thousands of debilitating side effects, according to the government’s own daunting statistics. This includes thousands of cases of paralysis, convulsions, blindness and dozens of deaths. Back in 2008, after receiving the first disturbing batch of records from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Judicial Watch published a special report detailing Gardasil’s approval process, side effects, safety concerns and marketing practices. Undoubtedly, it illustrates a large-scale public health experiment.
Regardless, the government has continued promoting the vaccine while covering up its debilitating side effects, recommending it for girls—and more recently boys—starting at age 9. The Obama administration gave dozens of state and municipal health agencies tens of millions of dollars to boost the number of adolescents that get Gardasil. This includes targeting low-income and ethnic minority populations that receive “culturally sensitive” intervention in a variety of languages, including Spanish, Mandarin, Armenian and Korean. U.S. law forbids lawsuits against vaccine manufacturers, but Judicial Watch has obtained records from the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) revealing that its National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) has awarded nearly $6 million to dozens of victims in claims made against the very HPV vaccine it is pushing on children.
In 2014 a physician who worked at Merck denounced Gardasil as an ineffective vaccine with deadly side effects that serves no other purpose than to generate profit for its manufacturer. The former pharmaceutical industry doctor, Bernard Dalbergue, said Gardasil is useless, costs a fortune and that decision-makers at all levels are aware of it. “I predict that Gardasil will become the greatest medical scandal of all times because at some point in time, the evidence will add up to prove that this vaccine, technical and scientific feat that it may be, has absolutely no effect on cervical cancer and that all the very many adverse effects which destroy lives and even kill, serve no other purpose than to generate profit for the manufacturers,” Dr. Dalbergue said. He added that there is far too much financial interest for the vaccine to be withdrawn. Dr. Dalbergue’s statements were used by a member of the French Parliament as part of a broader campaign blasting Gardasil’s horrible safety record in Europe.

New FDA Records Obtained by Judicial Watch Indicate 28 Deaths Related to Gardasil in 2008
JUNE 22, 2009
Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, announced today that it has obtained records from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) documenting 28 deaths in 2008 associated with Gardasil, the vaccination for human papillomavirus (HPV), up from 19 deaths in 2007. The total number of Gardasil-related deaths is 47 since the vaccine was approved in 2006. Overall, the FDA documented 6,723 “adverse events” related to Gardasil in 2008, of which 1,061 were considered “serious,” and 142 considered “life threatening.”
The following are several “adverse events” documented by the FDA’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS):
“15 months from the completion of the GARDASIL HPV vaccination, I had full blown cervical cancer. My oncologist would like to do a hysterectomy at this time, but [as I have] always wanted children, I have chosen to wait . . . I have two of the [strains] that the shot is suppose to prevent . . . I now have cervical cancer and I am left wondering what role the GARDASIL HPV vaccination played in the hasty onset.” (ID: 319836)
“After receiving her second dose of GARDASIL … she could crawl but … needed to use crutches or a wheel chair … She was experienced problems breathing and had ‘super migraines’ that never went away … She had swelling in her face, jaw and wrists. The patient was diagnosed with GUILLAIN-BARRE syndrome, myelin sheath degeneration and peripheral neuropathy. Patient was hospitalized twice … patient has not recovered from symptoms.” (ID: 318052)
A 19-year-old girl with no medical history immediately experienced side effects after receiving the Gardasil vaccine. Within eleven days her symptoms included “Aggression, Arthralgia, Complex partial seizures, Confusional state, Convulsion, Crying, Dizziness, Epilepsy, Fatigue, Feeling abnormal, Grand mal convulsion, Immediate post-injection reaction, Irritability, Myalgia, Nausea, Pain, Postictal state, Somnolence, Syncope, Tremor, and Unresponsive to stimuli.” (ID: 320598)
“Two weeks after the third dose, the patient developed a complication. She was taken to the hospital by ambulance but passed away during the transport from an unknown cause…Upon arrival in ER unresponsive, pupils fixed and dilated, no cardiac activity. Resuscitation unsuccessful and patient expired.” (ID: 314769)
The FDA VAERS reports show that since last June, 235 cases detailed permanent disability. There were also 29 new cases of Guillain-Barre Syndrome, and 147 cases of “spontaneous abortions,” or miscarriages, when the vaccine was given to pregnant women.

Merck Dr. Exposes Gardasil Scandal: Ineffective, Deadly, Very Profitable
APRIL 21, 2014
A controversial government-backed cervical cancer vaccine is ineffective, has deadly side effects and serves no other purpose than to generate profit for its manufacturer, according to a physician who worked at the major pharmaceutical company that’s made huge profits selling it to girls and young women.
It marks the most disturbing inside information exposed about the vaccine, Gardasil, which is manufactured by pharmaceutical giant Merck. The vaccine was scandalously fast-tracked by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and has been ardently promoted by the Obama administration as a miracle shot that can prevent certain strains of cervical cancer caused by Human Papillomavirus (HPV).
Instead it’s been linked to thousands of debilitating side effects, according to the government’s own daunting statistics. Since 2007 Judicial Watch has been investigating the Gardasil scandal and exposed droves of government records documenting thousands of adverse reactions associated with the vaccine, including paralysis, convulsions, blindness and dozens of deaths. Based on the records JW published a special report in 2008 detailing Gardasil’s approval process, side effects, safety concerns and marketing practices. Undoubtedly, it illustrates a large-scale public health experiment.
Now a one-time pharmaceutical industry physician, Dr. Bernard Dalbergue, who worked with Merck has come forth with shocking inside information that confirms what JW has exposed about Gardasil in its ongoing investigation. Dr. Dalbergue delivered the details in a French health magazine and a U.S. counterpart called Health Impact News Daily translated excerpts of the interview.
The physician confirms that Gardasil is useless, costs a fortune and that decision-makers at all levels are aware of it. “I predict that Gardasil will become the greatest medical scandal of all times because at some point in time, the evidence will add up to prove that this vaccine, technical and scientific feat that it may be, has absolutely no effect on cervical cancer and that all the very many adverse effects which destroy lives and even kill, serve no other purpose than to generate profit for the manufacturers,” Dr. Dalbergue says. He adds that there is far too much financial interest or the vaccine to be withdrawn.

Push for nation-wide ‘no jab, no play’ at childcare centres
11:40pm March 12, 2017
Unvaccinated children could be banned from attending childcare centres and preschools across Australia as part of a renewed push by the federal government.
Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has written to state and territory leaders in a move towards introducing consistent laws to protect children across the country.
“If you don’t vaccinate your child you are not just putting their own life at risk, but you are putting everyone else’s children at risk,” Mr Turnbull wrote.

Settlement for Saba Button, severely disabled after flu vaccine
Updated 8 Jun 2014, 2:26am
The family of a West Australian child left severely disabled after receiving a flu jab has reached a settlement with the vaccine’s manufacturer and the State Government.
Saba Button suffered brain and organ damage after getting the Fluvax shot when she was 11 months old in 2010.
Her parents launched legal action in the Federal Court against the vaccine’s manufacturer, CSL Limited.
CSL cross-claimed against the State of WA and the Health Minister.
All parties have reached a confidential settlement which has today been accepted by Federal Court Justice Michael Barker.
Saba’s father, Mick Button, said it had been a long battle for compensation.
“Today is a bittersweet feeling for us,” he said.
“It’s a relief to have the legal case behind us.
“We now have the ability to be able to supply Saba with the care, the therapy, the equipment, all the things that she needs to give her the best quality of life.”
Her mother Kirsten Button said she was relieved the legal action had been finalised.
“It doesn’t matter how much you have because you can’t buy your health but it is a good outcome, and the fact that it’s settled, we’re quite a strong family and we have moved forward but I think having that hanging over your head as such can be stressful so now we can move forward knowing that it’s all over.”
Mr Button said the funds would help Saba continue ongoing therapy and explore new options both in Australia and overseas.
“This doesn’t just stop now, once all the cameras are gone, it’s back to business and we’ve got a lot to do with Saba,” he said.

VACCINE STUDY: Peer-reviewed study shows vaccinated children have a 700% higher chance of neurodevelopmental disorder
Tuesday, March 07, 2017 by: Vicki Batts
(Natural News) On Valentine’s Day, a 34-page study that illustrated some of the harmful effects of vaccination was made available for viewing online. Six hours later, the URL had vanished, and the study was seemingly erased from the depths of the internet — likely in the hopes that the “controversial” information it contained would be forgotten.
Vaccination and Health Outcomes: A Survey of 6- to 12-year-old Vaccinated and Unvaccinated Children based on Mothers’ Reports, by Anthony R. Mawson, et al. seemed like any other standard report on vaccination at first glance, according to author James Grundvig. The paper had been linked to Grundvig, and he recently published an article about the study, how he authenticated it with the study’s author, and he even described how the publishing journal went about censoring the information.
Grundvig writes that after reading Mawson’s conclusions in the study, it appears that perhaps the CDC has purposefully avoided conducting such research themselves because “it would have run counter to CDC’s messaging that all ‘vaccines are safe.’”
Research: vaccines and neurodevelopmental disorders
To conduct their research, Mawson and his team engaged in a cross-sectional survey of mothers of children who were educated at home. Homeschooling organizations from Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Oregon were asked to forward an email to their members, requesting mothers to fill out an anonymous online survey. The questionnaire gathered information on vaccination status and health outcomes of their biological children who were between the ages of 6 and 12. In total, 415 mothers provided information about 666 children. Of those, just 261 (or 39 percent) had not been vaccinated. Information on pregnancy experiences, birth histories, acute and chronic conditions, and the usage of medication and health care services was also included in the data collection.
Overall, the results of the study showed that while vaccinated children were less likely to have had chicken pox or pertussis, they were significantly more likely to develop other types of infections, allergies, and were more likely to be diagnosed with a neurodevelopmental disorder (referred to in the study as an NDD). NDDs were defined as autism spectrum disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), a learning disability, or any combination of the three. Could it be that unvaccinated children are in many ways healthier? It certainly seems that way.
Data reveals shocking disparities

First Peer-Reviewed Study of Vaccinated versus Unvaccinated Children (Censored by an International Scientific Journal) Now Public
Results: Vaccinated children were significantly less likely than the unvaccinated to have been diagnosed with chickenpox and pertussis, but significantly more likely to have been diagnosed with other infections, allergies and NDDs (defined as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and/or a learning disability).
Chronic Illness Detail:
Vaccinated children were significantly more likely than the unvaccinated to have been diagnosed with the following chronic illnesses:
7-fold higher odds of any neurodevelopmental disorder (i.e., learning disability, ADHD, or ASD)

        2-fold increase in Autism Spectrum Disorder (“ASD”)
2-fold increase in ADHD
2-fold increase in learning disabilities
1-fold increase in allergic rhinitis
9-fold increase in other allergies
9-fold increase in eczema/atopic dermatitis
4-fold increase in any chronic 
illness

No significant differences were observed with regard to cancer, chronic fatigue, conduct disorder, Crohn’s disease, depression, Types 1 or 2 diabetes, encephalopathy, epilepsy, hearing loss, high blood pressure, inflammatory bowel disease, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, obesity, seizures, and Tourette’s syndrome. However, larger samples would be needed to detect group differences in these less common conditions.
Acute Illness Detail:
Vaccinated children were significantly less likely than unvaccinated children to have had chickenpox or whooping cough (p<0.001).
Vaccinated children had a 3.8-fold increased odds of middle ear infections and a 5.9-fold increased odds of being diagnosed with pneumonia compared to unvaccinated children.
No significant differences were seen between the two groups with regard to Hepatitis A or B, high fever in the past 6 months, measles, mumps, meningitis (viral or bacterial), influenza, or rotavirus.

US Immunization Schedule Recommends 26 Vaccinations For Children Under 1, Highest In World And Ranks 34th In Infant Mortality
Print Friendly MARCH 12, 2017
A new study published today in the Journal of Human and Experimental Toxology found that countries that administer a higher number of vaccines during the first year of life experience higher infant mortality rates.
The infant mortality rate (IMR) of a country is one of the most accepted and critical indicators of the socioeconomic well being of its citizens. It also reflects public health conditions and whether those conditions are improving or worsening over time.
The United States ranks 34th in infant mortality rate which means that 33 countries outrank the USA in this critical measure of public health. In addition, the United States’ immunization schedule for infants under 1 year of age recommends 26 vaccinations – the highest in the entire world.

Dirty Vaccines: Every Human Vaccine Tested Was Contaminated With Metals and Debris in New Study
Researchers examining 44 samples of 30 different vaccines found dangerous contaminants, including red blood cells in one vaccine and metal toxicants in every single sample tested – except in one animal vaccine.
Using extremely sensitive new technologies not used in vaccine manufacturing, Italian scientists reported they were “baffled” by their discoveries which included single particles and aggregates of organic debris including red cells of human or possibly animal origin and metals including lead, tungsten, gold, and chromium, that have been linked to autoimmune disease and leukemia.
In the study, published this week in the International Journal of Vaccines and Vaccination, the researchers led by Antoinetta Gatti, of the National Council of Research of Italy and the Scientific Director of Nanodiagnostics, say their results “show the presence of micro- and nano-sized particulate matter composed of inorganic elements in vaccine samples” not declared in the products’ ingredients lists.
Lead particles were found in the cervical cancer vaccines, Gardasil and Cevarix, for example, and in the seasonal flu vaccine Aggripal manufactured by Novartis as well as in the Meningetec vaccine meant to protect against meningitis C.
Samples of an infant vaccine called Infarix Hexa (against diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, hepatitis B, poliomyelitis and haemophilus influenzae type B) manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline was found to contain stainless steel, tungsten and a gold-zinc aggregate.
Other metal contaminants included platinum, silver, bismuth, iron, and chromium. Chromium (alone or in alloy with iron and nickel) was identified in 25 of the human vaccines from Italy and France that were tested.
GSK’s Fluarix vaccine for children three years and older contained 11 metals and aggregates of metals. Similar aggregates to those identified in the vaccines have been shown to be prevalent in cases of leukemia, the researchers noted.
Many of the vaccines contained iron and iron alloys which, according to the researchers, “can corrode and the corrosion products exert a toxicity affecting the tissues”.
The researchers supply an image of an area in a drop of Sanofi Pasteur MSD’s Repevax (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, polio) vaccine “where the morphology of red cells – we cannot tell whether they are human or animal- is clearly visible” along with the presence of “debris” composed of aluminum, bromine, silicon, potassium and titanium.
Feligen, the only veterinary vaccine tested in the 44 total vaccines sampled, proved to be the only sample free from inorganic contamination.

Study – New Quality-Control Investigations on Vaccines: Micro-and Nanocontamination
International Journal of Vaccines and Vaccination
Abstract
Vaccines  are  being  under  investigation  for  the  possible  side  effects  they  can cause. In order to supply new information, an electron-microscopy investigation method was applied to the study of vaccines, aimed at verifying the presence of solid contaminants by means of an Environmental Scanning Electron Microscope equipped  with  an  X-ray  microprobe.  The  results  of  this  new  investigation  show the presence of micro- and nanosized particulate matter composed of inorganic elements in vaccines’ samples which is not declared among the components and whose unduly presence is, for the time being, inexplicable. A considerable part of  those  particulate  contaminants  have  already  been  verified  in  other  matrices and  reported  in  literature  as  non  biodegradable  and  non  biocompatible.  The evidence  collected  is  suggestive  of  some  hypotheses  correlated  to  diseases  that are mentioned and briefly discussed.

Parents of children with autistic spectrum disorder report extreme fatigue
Pamela Cowan, Regina Leader-Post
Published on: January 13, 2017
For more than two years, Sarah Elizabeth Ivens was fascinated to work one-on-one with children who have autism spectrum disorder.
“It’s amazing how the mind can work differently,” she said.
As she got to know the childrens’ families, Ivens was struck by the many challenges they juggled and their high level of fatigue.
“Fatigue is a sense of exhaustion that cannot be resolved by getting rest,” she said. “It’s not just being tired. If you’re tired, then you can go to bed early, sleep in and the next day you’re feeling better. That’s not the case with fatigue.”
Fatigue impacts a person’s physical and mental capacities.
Ivens completed her honours degree in psychology at the University of Victoria, and is now a PhD student in clinical psychology at the University of Regina.
Her Victoria experience spurred her to take a closer look at parents’ experiences for her master’s thesis, titled Fatigue in parents of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders: The role of parental and child factors for mothers and fathers.
“We do know from other research that fatigue is problematic for parents in general and that it can really have a big impact on their well-being and their child rearing, which results in less-effective parenting,” Ivens said.
Past research focused on mothers. For her thesis, Ivens surveyed 112 parents of children with autism between the ages of two and 12 years, with the average age being seven.
“The kids had been diagnosed three years prior, so this was not families going through the transition of learning to deal with the diagnosis,” Ivens said. “These were parents who were doing it for a few years.”
Of those answering the online questionnaires for her 2015 study, 78 were mothers and 34 were fathers.
Getting dads involved was important. In many studies, only 10 per cent are fathers, she said.
“I think their answers and experiences are really getting lost in the noise,” Ivens said.
According to existing literature, mothers report being more fatigued than fathers, the 31-year-old said.
Her survey echoed that finding.

Merck Created Hit List to “Destroy,” “Neutralize” or “Discredit” Dissenting Doctors
By Jim Edwards May 6, 2009
Merck made a “hit list” of doctors who criticized Vioxx, according to testimony in a Vioxx class action case in Australia. The list, emailed between Merck employees, contained doctors’ names with the labels “neutralise,” “neutralised” or “discredit” next to them.
According to The Australian, Merck emails from 1999 showed company execs complaining about doctors who disliked using Vioxx. One email said:
We may need to seek them out and destroy them where they live …
The plaintiffs’ lawyer gave this assessment:
It gives you the dark side of the use of key opinion leaders and thought leaders … if (they) say things you don’t like to hear, you have to neutralise them … It does suggest a certain culture within the organisation about how to deal with your opponents and those who disagree with you.
The Australian:
The court was told that James Fries, professor of medicine at Stanford University, wrote to the then Merck head Ray Gilmartin in October 2000 to complain about the treatment of some of his researchers who had criticised the drug.
“Even worse were allegations of Merck damage control by intimidation,” he wrote, … “This has happened to at least eight (clinical) investigators … I suppose I was mildly threatened myself but I never have spoken or written on these issues.”
The allegations come on the heels of revelations that Merck created a fake medical journal — the Australasian Journal of Bone and Joint Medicine — in which to publish studies about Vioxx; had pop songs commissioned about Vioxx to inspire its staff, and paid ghostwriters to draft articles about the drug.

New Merck Allegations: A Fake Journal; Ghostwritten Studies; Vioxx Pop Songs; PR Execs Harass Reporters
By Jim Edwards April 23, 2009
Federal prosecutors in the U.S. will be reading with amusement the Australian press’s coverage of a class action trial down under for patients who took Merck’s now-withdrawn painkiller Vioxx.
Details emerging in Oz make some of the antics that Merck’s American counterparts got up to look tame by comparison. For example, in Australia, Merck allegedly:
Had a doctor sign his name to an entirely ghostwritten journal article even though a Merck staffer had complained that the data within it was based on “wishful thinking.”
Created a fake “peer-reviewed” journal, the “Australasian Journal of Bone and Joint Medicine,” in which to publicize pro-Vioxx articles.
Created a Ricky Martin-style pop song to get Merck sales reps all jazzed up about Vioxx (lyrics below!).
During the trial, Merck has employed an unusually aggressive set of PR consultants, some of whom have even followed reporters into the bathroom to make sure they got the story “right.”
Hatched a Blackadder-style “cunning plan” to seed seminars with speakers who were sympathetic to Vioxx but under instructions not to mention the brand name too often.
Regarding the “wishful thinking” study, The Age reports on these emails turned over in the trial:
Email from Merck senior researcher Briggs Morrison, August 2001:
“That seems wishful thinking, not a critical interpretation of the data … The data appears to have been interpreted to support a preconceived hypothesis.”
The claim was nonetheless included in the final version of the article, which Merck employees sent to US cardiologist Dr Marv Konstam for approval.
Dr Konstam was named as the article’s lead author when it was published in the medical journal Circulation in October 2001
The Australian describes the fake journal. And The Age notes that the journal was “designed to resemble a peer-reviewed publication and reprinted previously published articles.”

Merck target of Vioxx federal grand jury probe
Mon Mar 23, 2009
Merck & Co said on Monday that it has been advised it is a target of a U.S. grand jury investigation involving its withdrawn pain drug Vioxx.
The company had previously disclosed the government probe, which has been ongoing since 2004. But it only last week received a letter from the U.S. Attorney’s office for the District of Massachusetts informing the drugmaker it is a target of the grand jury investigation, Merck said.
The probe involves Merck’s research, marketing and selling activities regarding Vioxx, the once $2.5 billion a year drug that was pulled from the market in September 2004 after a study showed it doubled the risk of heart attack and stroke in long-term users.
Merck said it has responded and will continue to respond to requests from the U.S. Attorney for documents and information in connection with the probe. The investigation includes subpoenas for witnesses to appear before a grand jury, the company has said in securities filings.
The New Jersey-based drugmaker was sued by tens of thousands of former Vioxx users who claimed to have been injured by the arthritis medicine.
After winning the majority of product liability trials that reached a jury, Merck agreed to pay $4.85 billion to settle personal injury claims from former users who had suffered heart attacks and strokes.

Study – Investigating Viruses in Cells Used to Make Vaccines; and Evaluating the Potential Threat Posed by Transmission of Viruses to Humans
Principal Investigator: Arifa S. Khan, PhD
General Overview
The emergence of pathogenic virus infections like influenza and HIV have created an urgent need for new vaccines.
Virus-based vaccines are made in living cells (cell substrates). Some manufacturers are investigating the use of new cell lines to make vaccines. The continual growth of cell lines ensures that there is a consistent supply of the same cells that can yield high quantities of the vaccine.
In some cases the cell lines that are used might be tumorigenic, that is, they form tumors when injected into rodents. Some of these tumor-forming cell lines may contain cancer-causing viruses that are not actively reproducing. Such viruses are hard to detect using standard methods. These latent, or “quiet,” viruses pose a potential threat, since they might become active under vaccine manufacturing conditions. Therefore, to ensure the safety of vaccines, our laboratory is investigating ways to activate latent viruses in cell lines and to detect the activated viruses, as well as other unknown viruses, using new technologies. We will then adapt our findings to detect viruses in the same types of cell substrates that are used to produce vaccines. We are also trying to identify specific biological processes that reflect virus activity.
These methods will enable FDA scientists to help manufacturers to determine whether their specific cell substrate is safe to use for vaccine production. The methods our laboratory are developing and testing will help to ensure the production of safe and effective vaccines in two ways: 1) FDA will be able to develop testing guidelines for manufacturers who use new cell substrates for producing vaccines; and 2) FDA will publish the new methods it develops in peer-reviewed scientific journals, thus making them readily accessible to all manufacturers.
We are also evaluating the risk of retrovirus infections in humans. (Retroviruses are RNA viruses that use an enzyme called reverse transcriptase (RT) to replicate; RNA is the de-coded form of DNA). Simian foamy virus (SFV) can be transmitted from nonhuman primates (e.g., monkeys) to humans. Although there is no evidence that SFV causes disease, the virus can remain in a lifelong quiet state in the DNA after infection. Moreover, two individuals in Africa were recently found to be infected with both HIV-1 and SFV. Therefore, it is important to determine if SFV poses a threat to human health and to understand how the virus spreads in order to create strategies for controlling human infections. Such work will also help FDA to develop a new policy regarding blood donation by individuals working with nonhuman primates and implementing formal safety guidelines for people working with SFV-infected animals. We are also investigating the consequences of dual SFV and HIV-1 infection in the monkey model.

Dr. Suzanne Humphries, M.D. – Vaccine Strain of Measles Virus Found in Measles Outbreaks
February 21, 2017
Health Impact News Editor Comments
Dr. Suzanne Humphries is a practicing nephrologist (kidney physician). In this lecture (video below), she addresses a study done in Croatia [1] where a child who was vaccinated with the MMR vaccine was tested positive for the measles vaccine strain Schwarz eight days after vaccination.
This was a significant finding, because the child’s symptoms were thought to be similar to rubella, and without testing, the sickness would have been possibly mis-diagnosed as rubella, or the wild-type strain of measles the vaccine is designed to protect against.
This concept of “shedding,” where the child comes down with the disease from the virus in the vaccine itself, surprised the researchers:
Virus excretion in vaccinees has been reported before, but to our knowledge, this is documented for the first time for the Schwarz vaccine strain. [1]
Since 2010, this phenomena of vaccine shedding with measles in the MMR vaccine has been observed in at least two other studies:
Differentiating the wild from the attenuated during a measles outbreak. Paediatrcis and Child Health, 2012:
In the midst of a local measles outbreak, a recently immunized child was investigated for a new-onset measles-type rash. Nucleic acid testing identified that a vaccine-type measles virus was being shed in the urine. Clinically differentiating measles from a nonmeasles rash is challenging, but can be supported by a thorough medical history evaluation. Rashes are expected to occur after immunization; nucleic acid testing can be used when it is difficult to differentiate between wild and attenuated strains. [2]
Case of vaccine-associated measles five weeks post-immunisation, British Columbia, Canada, Eurosurveillance, 2013:
We describe a case of vaccine-associated measles in a two-year-old patient from British Columbia, Canada, in October 2013, who received her first dose of measles-containing vaccine 37 days prior to onset of prodromal symptoms. Identification of this delayed vaccine-associated case occurred in the context of an outbreak investigation of a measles cluster. [3]
Are health officials testing cases of measles in the current outbreak in the United States, to determine if the measles strain is the wild strain of the vaccine strain?
Not likely, and it is not likely that the mainstream media “TV doctors” will even discuss this as they falsely vilify parents who choose not to administer the MMR vaccine to their children as the cause of these outbreaks. Some of these cases are confirmed to be among those who have received the MMR vaccine, and for those who have not been vaccinated, is it possible they were infected from those recently vaccinated when the vaccine was still “shedding,” and that the vaccine-strain of measles was passed on from the vaccinated child to the unvaccinated child?

Statement of William W. Thompson, Ph.D., Regarding the 2004 Article Examining the Possibility of a Relationship Between MMR Vaccine and Autism
My name is William Thompson.  I am a Senior Scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention, where I have worked since 1998.
I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information  in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased  risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed.
I want to be absolutely clear that I believe vaccines have saved and continue  to save countless lives.  I would never suggest that any parent avoid vaccinating children of any race. Vaccines prevent serious diseases, and the risks associated  with their administration are vastly outweighed  by their individual and societal benefits.
My concern has been the decision to omit relevant findings in a particular study for a particular sub­ group for a particular  vaccine. There have always been recognized risks for vaccination and I believe it is the responsibility of the CDC to properly  convey the risks associated  with receipt of those vaccines.
I have had many discussions  with Dr. Brian Hooker over the last 10 months regarding studies  the CDC has carried out regarding vaccines and neurodevelopmental outcomes including autism spectrum disorders. I share his beliefthat CDC decision-making and analyses should be transparent. I was not, however, aware that he was recording any of our conversations, nor was I given any choice regarding whether  my name would be made public or my voice would be put on the Internet.

Yale Study SHOWS Vaccines Cause Brain Disorders – RFK Jr.
By Paul Webber – February 11, 2017
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has wasted little time as the newly appointed Vaccine Safety Czar of the Trump Administration. Kennedy has long championed the rights of those suffering from vaccine injury and now thanks to President Trump bringing the cause to mainstream, Kennedy has a powerful stage to generate discussion.
Now on the heels of a research study from Yale University, Kennedy has released the story on EcoWatch, Kennedy is on the board of the website.

Study – Temporal Association of Certain Neuropsychiatric Disorders Following Vaccination of Children and Adolescents: A Pilot Case–Control Study
Background: Although the association of the measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine with autism spectrum disorder has been convincingly disproven, the onset of certain brain-related autoimmune and inflammatory disorders has been found to be temporally associated with the antecedent administration of various vaccines. This study examines whether antecedent vaccinations are associated with increased incidence of obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD), anorexia nervosa (AN), anxiety disorder, chronic tic disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, major depressive disorder, and bipolar disorder in a national sample of privately insured children.
Methods: Using claims data, we compared the prior year’s occurrence of vaccinations in children and adolescents aged 6–15 years with the above neuropsychiatric disorders that were newly diagnosed between January 2002 and December 2007, as well as two control conditions, broken bones and open wounds. Subjects were matched with controls according to age, gender, geographical area, and seasonality. Conditional logistic regression models were used to determine the association of prior vaccinations with each condition.
Results: Subjects with newly diagnosed AN were more likely than controls to have had any vaccination in the previous 3 months [hazard ratio (HR) 1.80, 95% confidence interval 1.21–2.68]. Influenza vaccinations during the prior 3, 6, and 12 months were also associated with incident diagnoses of AN, OCD, and an anxiety disorder. Several other associations were also significant with HRs greater than 1.40 (hepatitis A with OCD and AN; hepatitis B with AN; and meningitis with AN and chronic tic disorder).
Conclusion: This pilot epidemiologic analysis implies that the onset of some neuropsychiatric disorders may be temporally related to prior vaccinations in a subset of individuals. These findings warrant further investigation, but do not prove a causal role of antecedent infections or vaccinations in the pathoetiology of these conditions. Given the modest magnitude of these findings in contrast to the clear public health benefits of the timely administration of vaccines in preventing mortality and morbidity in childhood infectious diseases, we encourage families to maintain vaccination schedules according to CDC guidelines.

Flu Shot Causes Over 5x Times More Respiratory Infections – A Vaccinated vs. Unvaccinated Study
While the government in the U.S. continues to resist doing a true study on vaccinated vs. unvaccinated children or adults, stating that such a study would be “unethical”, researchers in Hong Kong have conducted a true vaccinated vs. unvaccinated study on the influenza vaccine. This is probably one of the few, if not only, true study conducted in recent times where a real placebo was actually used and compared to the vaccine. The results are quite remarkable, suggesting that it is unethical NOT to pursue more studies comparing vaccinated and unvaccinated populations. People receiving the flu vaccine suffered from other respiratory infections at a rate 5.5 times more than the placebo group!
Thanks to Heidi Stevenson at Gaia Health for providing her excellent analysis of this study in response to my request.
Vaccine Vials, by Sanofi Pasteur, Vaccine Profiteer
The utter absurdity of vaccination ‘science’ is revealed in this study. It claims a flu vaccine results in less disease risk because it causes antibodies to develop, in spite of not reducing the likelihood of contracting the disease and also resulting in 5.5 times more incidents of similar diseases!
by Heidi Stevenson Gaia Health
Would you be interested in a vaccination that results in more than 5 times as much illness? If you take the seasonal influenza vaccination, that’s what you’re doing. The seasonal trivalent flu vaccine results in 5.5 times more incidents of respiratory illness, according to a study published in Clinical Infectious Diseases.
The study is particularly noteworthy because it was a double-blind placebo-controlled trial—and the researchers used saline solution, a genuinely inactive placebo, as a standin for the trivalent flu vaccine. Most vaccine trials utilize active placebos, which are substances that include ingredients used in the vaccines, making the studies meaningless—though this fact is almost never revealed in the writeups.
Subjects were followed for an average of 272 days. The active influenza vaccine adminstered was Sanofi Pasteur’s Vaxigrip. The trial included children aged 6-15 years. 69 were given Vaxgrip and 46 received the saline placebo.
With regard to effectiveness against influenza, the authors wrote:
There was no statistically significant difference in the risk of confirmed seasonal influenza infection between recipients of TIV [trivalent influenza inactivated vaccine] or placebo.
The flu vaccine provided no benefit!
The authors tried to cover that by adding:
TIV recipients had significantly lower risk of seasonal influenza infection based on serologic evidence.
In other words, the authors are trying to suggest that, in spite of the fact that vaccine recipients suffered as much genuine influenza as those who’d received a placebo, they still benefited because of “serologic evidence”. This “serologic evidence” consists of antibodies produced as a result of the vaccine, which is the standard method of determining a vaccine’s effectiveness.
In other words, a vaccine’s effectiveness is not determined by whether it prevents disease, but rather by whether it causes antibodies to be produced!

Human-Pig GMO Created at Vaccine Institute
February 07, 2017
By Dr. Mercola
In Greek mythology, a chimera is a fire-breathing monster created from different species, most often portrayed as a creature with a lion’s head, a goat’s body and a serpent’s tail.
Chimeras have long been regarded as mythical creatures, to the extent that the word “chimera” also means “an illusion or fabrication of the mind” or “an unrealizable dream.”1 Among humans, chimeras, or people who have two genetically distinct types of cells, do exist, however.
Most often this occurs among non-identical twins who shared a blood supply in the uterus and end up having more than one blood type (they’re known as blood chimeras). The idea of a human-animal chimera has remained confined largely to mythology, however — until now.
First Human-Pig Hybrid Created
Researchers from the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in La Jolla, California, have made history by creating a human-pig hybrid, a task achieved by injecting days-old pig embryos with human pluripotent stem cells.2 Such cells, like embryonic stem cells, are able to divide indefinitely and become any type of cell in the body.
The human-pig embryos were then transferred into adult pigs and allowed to grow for up to four weeks, before they were “removed and analyzed.”3
The study noted that more than 2,000 hybrid embryos were transferred into surrogate sows, but only 186 later-stage chimeric embryos survived the process, each with about 1 in 100,000 human cells.
The long-term goal of such research is to figure out if it’s possible to grow human organs inside other species, like pigs. Human embryo development, drug development and disease processes could also be studied using chimeras.
Animal chimeras have been developed in the past. For instance, researchers genetically engineered (GE) rat embryos to not produce a pancreas (which controls blood sugar levels), then injected mouse stem cells into them, which resulted in the growth of pancreatic tissue.
They were then able to treat diabetes by transplanting parts of the healthy organs into diseased mice.4
The development of human-animal chimeras has, however, remained in the realm of science fiction until now. Aside from the glaring ethical considerations, these types of experiments have been ineligible for public funding in the U.S., which is why the Salk Institute has had to rely on private funding for the study.5

India Boots Gates Foundation Citing Pharmaceutical “Conflict of Interest”
In 2009, tribal children (girls) of the Khammam district in Andhra Pradesh, India were given “well being” shots consisting of the HPV vaccine manufactured by Merck. In Vadodara, Gujarat, another 14,000 plus more tribal children used as guinea pigs. This time the “well being” shots were the HPV vaccine called Cervarix made by GlaxoSmithKline. Both vaccine “campaigns” had purposely denied the girls and their parents informed consent. Both “campaigns” were really official expanded trials of Merck and GlaxoSmithKline’s newly approved HPV vaccines. Both trials were in collaboration, directed, and implemented by the openly candid eugenics Gates Foundation. And both India HPV vaccine trials saw the health of a critical mass of the girls who received the unsafe vaccine rapidly deteriorate including some deaths.
In April 2010, the government of India called a halt to trials of the HPV vaccine. This came about because of a civil society-led investigation highlighted serious ethical violations in the trials. According to Economic and Political Weekly, the investigation that led to the ban highlights how:
“…the promotional practices of drug companies, pressure from powerful international organizations, and the co-option of, and uncritical endorsement by India’s medical associations are influencing the country’s public health priorities.”
Whistleblowers from the Indian NGO woman’s health group named Sama revealed how the young girls were being used as guinea pigs for vaccine trials all under the guise of receiving healthcare. Sama reported that those receiving the vaccine were given no informed consent while authorities made the people submit their thumb prints.
The recent news reported by the Economic Times of India states:
“The Centre has shut the gate on the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation on a critical national health mission, and possible conflict of interest issues arising from the foundation’s “ties” with pharmaceutical companies is one of the reasons.
All financial ties of the country’s apex immunization advisory body, National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization (NTAGI), with the Gates Foundation have been cut off.”
Concerns from senior medical officials within India, arguments from members of the steering board of the National Health Mission, and the Swadeshi Jagaran Manch economic wing of the Hindu nationalist movement unified to blow the whistle on pharmaceutical “conflict of interest issues” within the NTAGI-Gates Foundation relationship. Gates and his foundation were given 20 days to wrap up their ties and exit their involvement with India’s Immunization Technical Support Unit at the Public Health Foundation of India. The official removal of the Gates Foundation from the affairs of India’s public health care comes after over a five year legal battle within India’s Supreme Court in which the foundation has been on trial for damage their vaccine programs have caused.
Coming into existence on November 22, 1991 People from all walks of life with distinct ideologies in India came together on the Swadeshi Jagaran Manch (SJM) platform to fight against “economic imperialism.” Playing a role in the recent removal the Gates Foundation from India, SJM’s national co-convener Ashwani Mahajan told the Economic Times of India, “We welcome this move by the government. We have always said foreign influence in our domestic policies in any way must be avoided.”

Ten Year Old Little Girl Paralyzed After Vaccination:
Nancy Grace had NO idea that Congress had removed the rights of Americans to sue for vaccine injury and death.
Due to this cruel, unjust reality, even though the legal system has ruled in favor of countless cases proving that the flu shot DOES cause ADEM (Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis), the vaccine injury that Marysue Grivna suffered, people like Amy Edwards can still go on TV and claim, “Gosh… we just don’t know if and how flu shots cause ADEM…..We think it is just a coincidence.”

Yale University Study Shows Association Between Vaccines and Brain Disorders
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
A team of researchers from the Yale School of Medicine and Penn State College of Medicine have found a disturbing association between the timing of vaccines and the onset of certain brain disorders in a subset of children.
Analyzing five years’ worth of private health insurance data on children ages 6-15, these scientists found that young people vaccinated in the previous three to 12 months were significantly more likely to be diagnosed with certain neuropsychiatric disorders than their non-vaccinated counterparts.
This new study, which raises important questions about whether over-vaccination may be triggering immune and neurological damage in a subset of vulnerable children (something parents of children with autism have been saying for years), was published in the peer-reviewed journal Frontiers in Psychiatry, Jan. 19.
More than 95,000 children in the database that were analyzed had one of seven neuropsychiatric disorders: anorexia nervosa, anxiety disorder, attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), bipolar disorder, major depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) and tic disorder.
Children with these disorders were compared to children without neuropsychiatric disorders, as well as to children with two other conditions that could not possibly be related to vaccination: open wounds and broken bones.
This was a well-designed, tightly controlled study. Control subjects without brain disorders were matched with the subjects by age, geographic location and gender.
As expected, broken bones and open wounds showed no significant association with vaccinations.
New cases of major depression, bipolar disorder or ADHD also showed no significant association with vaccinations.
However, children who had been vaccinated were 80 percent more likely to be diagnosed with anorexia and 25 percent more likely to be diagnosed with OCD than their non-vaccinated counterparts. Vaccinated children were also more likely to be diagnosed with an anxiety disorder and with tics compared to the controls.
In a carefully worded conclusion, the researchers caution making too much of these results while also urging further investigation. “This pilot epidemiologic analysis implies that the onset of some neuropsychiatric disorders may be temporally related to prior vaccinations in a subset of individuals,” they write. “These findings warrant further investigation, but do not prove a causal role of antecedent infections or vaccinations in the pathoetiology of these conditions.”

Study – Temporal Association of Certain Neuropsychiatric Disorders Following Vaccination of Children and Adolescents: A Pilot Case–Control Study
Results: Subjects with newly diagnosed AN were more likely than controls to have had any vaccination in the previous 3 months [hazard ratio (HR) 1.80, 95% confidence interval 1.21–2.68]. Influenza vaccinations during the prior 3, 6, and 12 months were also associated with incident diagnoses of AN, OCD, and an anxiety disorder. Several other associations were also significant with HRs greater than 1.40 (hepatitis A with OCD and AN; hepatitis B with AN; and meningitis with AN and chronic tic disorder).
Conclusion: This pilot epidemiologic analysis implies that the onset of some neuropsychiatric disorders may be temporally related to prior vaccinations in a subset of individuals. These findings warrant further investigation, but do not prove a causal role of antecedent infections or vaccinations in the pathoetiology of these conditions. Given the modest magnitude of these findings in contrast to the clear public health benefits of the timely administration of vaccines in preventing mortality and morbidity in childhood infectious diseases, we encourage families to maintain vaccination schedules according to CDC guidelines.

Flu Shot Ingredients & Why You Should NEVER Get One
Flu shot hysteria is in full swing. In some ways, the most dangerous flu shot ingredients are the socio-political elements that make up the hysteria: drug company marketing, co-worker bullies, corporate mandates. I can’t tell you how many stories I hear from readers who are bullied and subjected to discrimination at corporate offices. It is utterly appalling.
But there are actual ingredients which are, well, pretty bad. They are disgusting. Here are a few:
Formaldehyde: You know, the stuff your science class preserved frogs in. This stuff is also used to maintain (stabilize) your flu vaccine concoction. Formaldehyde is a colorless and flammable substance often used in household cleaning products. You can, as alluded to before, embalm a dead body using it. It has been linked to neurological damage and metabolic acidosis. It can make it difficult for you to breath and possible kidney failure. It has also been classified as a carcinogen for humans, which means it causes cancer.
Aluminum: This is used as an “adjuvant.” The goal is to stimulate an immune response. Aluminum, however, is a neurotoxin. It has been linked to Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and dementia. Some studies on humans have even shown it to cause nerve death.
Phenol: This is supposed to help stimulate an immune response. It was used by Nazis to exterminate Jews during WW2. It is also used in weed killers to help kill weeds. Reproductive systems, liver, kidneys and even the skin suffer serious side effects with Phenol.
This is only a few of the real ingredients. Why on earth would anyone take this shot?
Just how well does the flu shot work?
This graph is taken from the CDC website. The shot in 2014-2015 flu season protected people at a 23% rate?

Seasonal Influenza Vaccine Effectiveness, 2005-2016
CDC conducts studies to measure the benefits of seasonal flu vaccination each flu season to help determine how well flu vaccines are working. These vaccine effectiveness (VE) studies regularly assess and confirm the value of flu vaccination as a public health intervention. Study results of vaccine effectiveness can vary based on study design, outcome(s) measured, population studied and the season in which the flu vaccine was studied.
CDC has been working with researchers at universities and hospitals since the 2003-2004 flu season to estimate how well flu vaccine works through observational studies using medically attended laboratory-confirmed flu as the outcome. This is the U.S. Flu Vaccine Effectiveness (VE) Network. The U.S. Flu VE Network currently consists of five study sites across the United States that measure the flu vaccine’s effectiveness at preventing outpatient medical visits due to laboratory-confirmed influenza. CDC’s observational studies at U.S. Flu VE Network sites measure outpatient visits* for laboratory-confirmed influenza infections using a highly accurate lab test called rRT-PCR to verify the outcome. These studies compare the odds of vaccination among outpatients with acute respiratory illness and laboratory-confirmed influenza infection to the odds of vaccination among outpatients with acute respiratory illness who test negative for influenza infection.
The overall, adjusted vaccine effectiveness estimates for influenza seasons from 2005-2016 are noted in the chart below. (Estimates are typically adjusted for study site, age, sex, underlying medical conditions, and days from illness onset to enrollment.)

Vaccine-Induced SSPE Observed After MMR Vaccinations
Measles Vaccine Scandal: World Governments Have Known It Can Cause Neurological Disorders Since 1970’s
A staggering 15 years later, during the ARVI (Adverse Reaction to Vaccination and Immunization) meeting 6th July 1987, Section 4 – Item 5 – MMR vaccine – 5.4 Postpartum Rubella immunisation associated with development of prolonged arthritis neurological sequelae and chronic rubella arthritis Tingle et al. J. of Inf. Diseases (1985), Vol 152: pages 606-612 the committee members can be seen discussing points raised in the previous ARVI meeting. [5]

Subacute Sclerosing Panencephalitis (SSPE) – Facts and Information
Defining SSPE:
SSPE is a form of progressive neurological disorder that affects the central nervous system of children and young adults. The disorder is slow yet persistent, and is a viral infection caused by defective measles virus. SSPE is found in every part of the world today, but is considered to be a rare disease in developed nations with less than ten-percent of people who experience the disorder in America. Widespread immunization with measles vaccine has found a ninety-percent decline in the incidence of SSPE in nations that practice such immunization. In the nations of India and Eastern Europe the incidence of SSPE remains high. There is also a higher incidence rate among males than females with a ratio of three to one.
Many young people with SSPE present a history of measles infection at an early age, commonly before the age of two, followed by a latent period of six to eight years prior to the onset of neurological symptoms. Researchers believe that despite the long interval between the initial measles infection and the onset of SSPE, the infection of the person’s brain happens soon after the primary measles infection, and then progresses at a slow rate. The reasons behind the persistence and slow progression of the disorder remain unknown.
The symptoms a person with SSPE experiences are subtle. They usually include symptoms such as changes in behavior and mild mental deterioration such as memory loss. The symptoms that follow are commonly involuntary jerking movements of the person’s head, limb or trunk jerks, and additional motor function disturbances. The person may experience seizure activity, or become blind. As the disorder advances, the affected person might lose the ability to walk as their muscles spasm or stiffen. The person progresses towards a comatose state, followed by a vegetative state. People with SSPE commonly die as a result of fever, heart failure, or their brain’s inability to continue controlling their autonomic nervous system.
Encephalitis as a whole involves a rare complication of measles infection and is categorized into three unique types. The types of encephalitis include acute encephalitis, subacute sclerosing encephalitis (SSPE), as well as subacute measles encephalitis in the immuno-suppressed. Acute encephalitis is most likely a form of autoimmune phenomenon and not an infection of the person’s brain tissue. SSPE involves a progressive course that commonly begins a number of years after the person experiences an acute infection with the measles virus during their early childhood. A defective measles virus, or vaccination, may also lead to the progression of SSPE. The disorder itself is clinically characterized by a slow and erratic course that many times results in the death of the person affected. SSPE is also referred to by the names, ‘Subacute sclerosing leukoencephalitis,’ and, ‘Dawson’s encephalitis.’
Symptoms of SSPE:
The list of signs and symptoms associated with Subacute Sclerosing Panencephalitis (SSPE) is long. The symptoms of SSPE can include the following:

    Coma
Death
Seizures
Irritability
Dementia
Blindness
Spasticity
Memory loss
Optic atrophy
Hyperthermia
Unsteady gait
Abnormal EEG
Myoclonic jerks
Cortical blindness
Brain inflammation
Behavioral changes
Very tense muscles
Progressive dementia
Involuntary movements
Intellectual deterioration
Homeostasis disturbances
Neurological deterioration
Increased measles antibodies in blood
Increased measles antibodies in cerebrospinal fluid
Increased gammaglobulin levels in cerebrospinal fluid

Causes of SSPE:
The measles virus usually does not cause brain damage. An abnormal immune response to the measles, or a potential mutant form of the virus, can cause either severe illness or death. Such a reaction can lead to inflammation of the person’s brain, to include swelling and irritation of the person’s brain that can last for a number of years. SSPE is a disorder that has been reported in all parts of the world, although in western nations it is considered to be a rare form of disease. In nations such as India, greater than twenty persons per million are affected by SSPE each year.

Former Merck Rep Says Mandatory Vaccination Is For Profit and Not Public Health

Former Merck Rep Says Mandatory Vaccination Is For Profit and Not Public Health

Brandy Vaughan is a former sales rep for Merck & Co. – a vaccine maker – and she details how vaccine companies are using vaccines as a vehicle for massive profit and not public health. Brandy researched the safety of vaccines and found that not only do vaccines contain known toxins that can cause neurological damage, but that vaccine makers do not create the same safety studies for vaccines as they do for other drugs. This lack of true safety research of vaccines combined with the known adverse reactions to vaccination has helped Brandy to decide to never vaccinate her own child. Brandy says giving children a vaccine is like playing Russian roulette with our children and that mandatory vaccination is simply a way for vaccine makers to profit off of our children. Don’t be fooled: we do not need mandatory vaccination.

Merck accused of failing to disclose side effects of vaccine

Merck accused of failing to disclose side effects of vaccine
PHILADELPHIA — An engaged couple’s lawsuit against Merck & Co. Inc. and Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp. alleges failure to warn, negligent misrepresentation and product liability.
Jerome Dotter and Sheryl Greene-Payne filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against the defendants, alleging that they failed to disclose to consumers the potential harmful effect of receiving Zostavax vaccine.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that in 2014, Dotter experienced pain in the right side of his body as well as fatigue and myalgia which was the result of receiving Zostavax vaccine. The plaintiffs hold the defendants responsible because they allegedly had knowledge of the potential risk of receiving Zostavax vaccine but failed to let consumers know.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek compensatory damages, restitution and disgorgement of profits, punitive damages, economic damages, court costs and any further relief this court grants. They are represented by Andrew W. Knox of Lopez McHugh, LLP in Moorestown, New Jersey.

CDC Chief Admits that Vaccines Trigger Autism

Recently Julie Gerberding, the head of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), appeared on Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s show House Call and explained that vaccines can trigger autism in a vulnerable subset of children. This is the claim that many parents have been making since at least the 1980s, and they have been dismissed and even mocked for making it.
The U.S. government has gone on the record saying that childhood vaccines can contribute to the symptoms of autism. They have then backtracked and stated that there is no association.
So which is it?
Well, by the time your child starts school, he or she will have received more than 36 injections, including four doses each of vaccines for Hemophilus influenzae type b infections, diphtheria, tetanus, and pertussis — all of them given during the first 12 months of life.
And by then, it may be too late for the CDC to make up their mind about whether or not vaccines can be dangerous.
In 1976, children received 10 vaccines before attending school, and in the early 1980s, the incidence of autism was 1 in 10,000 births. Today, it is 1 in 150 births and still climbing.

CDC Chief Admits that Vaccines Trigger Autism
Julie Gerberding, the head of the CDC, went on CNN’s House Call with Dr. Sanjay Gupta to discuss the Hannah Poling case and admitted that vaccines trigger autism in a subset of the population with mitochondrial disorders.
It is time for Dr. Gerberding to answer some hard questions before congress.
Call for congressional hearings into the Vaccine Injury Compensation Fund autism cases, so we can find out what the government knows about the relationship between vaccines and autism.
AdventuresInAutism.com
Addendum: Gerberding/CDC/HHS has given several names to the phenomenon of Vaccine Induced Autism. Gerberding calls it the “symptoms of autism” in this interview, “autism like syndrome” during a previous CDC press conference and HHS refers to it as “vaccine induced encepalopathy” on their website for the Vaccine Injury Compensation fund.
I wrote this piece (see link below) to point out the absurdity of trying to fool the American people into thinking that vaccines cause something that looks exactly like autism, and in fact is diagnosed as autism by every professional the child sees, but is actually an “autism like syndrome” with the “symptoms of autism” that occurred following a “vaccine induced encepalopathy” which has the exact same symptoms as autism, but it is not really autism… oh… and by the way… vaccines don’t cause autism.
It is time to end the word games and deal with the problem.
UPDATE: I have closed the comments for now as it was becoming a mess. People justifiably want to discuss the role of vaccines in the autism epidemic in detail, but the commenting format with its character limit, scrambled message/reply order and inability to link is not the place for this complicated debate. Trying to have a debate here is making me nuts.
I invite you to leave your comments about the video on the comments section of my blog where the video was originally posted, where linear and exhaustive commenting, with linking to source material can take place.

Hopefully this will make for more fruitful discussion.
UPDATE: Dr. Gerberding resigned from her post at the request of the Obama Administration when he took office on January 20th, 2009.
She quickly went to work for Global PR giant Edelman, who represents PHARMA and several of their member companies like Merck. Edelman is responsible for the “One Less” Guardasil campaign.
She served on the “Edelman Global Task Force on H1N1 Influenza”, appearing on media outlets encouraging swine flu vaccination, even referring to vaccines as “magical”, but never mentioned that she was now working as paid vaccine salesman.
On December 21, 2009, Merck announced that Julie Gerberding would be the new head of their vaccine division. Merck makes the MMR that injured Hannah Poling.
Current guidelines are that someone cannot go to work for a company that they have regulated for one year and three business days.
That would be January 25th 2010 for Julie.
Right on time.
My guess, this was really the plan all along. Watch the video again. Suddenly it makes sense just why she would make such a fool of herself by going on TV and saying that vaccines do and do not cause autism. She probably knew that her pay off was less than two years away.
Want the full story and her corruption in the vaccine autism connection?
Julie Gerberding Named Head of Merck Vaccines

Merck Admits Shingles Vaccine Can Cause Eye Damage…and Shingles

Merck Admits Shingles Vaccine Can Cause Eye Damage…and Shingles
Two important FDA approved changes to the warning label of Merck Pharmaceutical’s shingles vaccine, Zostavax, have been made since the controversial drug was introduced in 2006.  The first was in August 2014, when, in addition to potentially causing chickenpox, another side effect was added: shingles! That’s right. The vaccine that had been – and continues to be — aggressively marketed to prevent seniors from contracting this excruciating condition was found to actually cause shingles in some individuals.
In February of this year, the FDA approved a label change to warn those who prescribe the Zostavax vaccine of another potential side effect: “Eye Disorders: necrotizing retinitis.”

Shingles Vaccine Eye Damage
The shinglesZostovax vaccine Merck Pharmaceuticals has been marketing since 2006 now comes with a warning that it could cause eye damage. February 17, 2016, the FDA approved a label change to Merck’s Zostamax vaccine prescribing information. The change to the label added “Eye Disorders: necrotizing retinitis.” Merck consequently faces Shingles Vaccine Lawsuits over this dubious vaccine.
Keratitis Vision Damage from Vaccines
WebMD reported that researchers found 20 cases of keratitis in children and adults that occurred within a month of receiving a chickenpox or shingles vaccine. Keratitis symptoms for adults developed within 24 days of vaccination, while symptoms in children began within 14 days of vaccination. Researchers concluded there is a probable relationship between the vaccine and the eye inflammation, though the study wasn’t designed to prove the vaccine actually caused the condition. (Of course it wasn’t.)
Keratitis causes inflammation and scarring of the eye tissue. If one fails to get treated fast, it can lead to permanent vision loss.
Health Sciences Institute (HSI) points out in a Jan 21, 2016 piece that the researchers say they don’t know why the shingles shot may cause keratitis, but we do know that keratitis has been linked to autoimmune disorders, and that shots like the shingles vaccine can profoundly short circuit the immune system.
The mainstream media didn’t miss a beat, of course, telling us that despite these little “side effects” (hardly worth a mention, really), it’s still a good idea to get the shingles vaccine, and never mind the fact that it barely works at all, or perhaps causes more cases of shingles than it prevents.
Shingles Vaccine causes Shingles
The mainstream failszostovax to tell us that the shingles vaccine causes shingles. Funny they leave that out, because even the FDA is aware now that the shingles vaccine features an absurd problem.  In August 2014, FDA approved a change to the shingles vaccine warnings label to include that the shingles vaccine causes – wait for it – shingles!  Yes, you read that right.
Shingles Vaccine Fails to Work as Advertised
HSI further points out that “UCLA researchers found that only one in 175 people who get the vaccine will be able to dodge a shingles flare-up. And if you’re over 70, you’d be lucky to get those odds.”
So these people from WebMD and other mainstream media outlets who take endless money in advertising from Big Pharma and never see a drug or vaccine campaign they don’t like, are now telling you it’s worth risking eye damage, maybe up to blindness, to take a shingles shot that fails more than 99 percent of the time, and uh, just happens to also give you shingles? That’s a chance worth taking? You take it, friend. We shall pass on the shingles vaccine.

Scientists Prove Those Vaccinated for Shingles Can Infect Others with Chicken Pox
For many years, the US government and mainstream media have continued to blame the unvaccinated community for the spread of infectious disease. We are constantly being bombarded with statements like the one written by Philip Ross and published in the International Business Times, which stated:
“The American classroom has become a battleground for parents who are threatened by the growing number of children not vaccinated against measles, one of the most highly contagious viruses in the world. The ongoing measles outbreak in the U.S. that started at Disneyland and has spread to 14 states has raised concerns over the country’s rising anti-vaccination movement, including whether the decision to vaccinate against such a dangerous disease should be left to parents, and what constitutes responsible childrearing. Should a child whose parents chose not to vaccinate be allowed to share the same pencils and playground as children whose parents did?”
Although the International Business Times had attempted to present the public with a balanced review of the situation facing parents, it is questionable as to whether they presented any real evidence to support their claims and they left many readers with unanswered questions.
Shingles Vaccines Cause Chicken Pox in the Unvaccinated
Duane Pierson stated that:
“Inoculation site samples taken within 10 minutes after vaccination were positive for Zostavax VZV DNA in 18 (50%) of 36 subjects. The VZV DNA copy number per nanogram of total DNA ranged from 28 to 2.1 × 106 (Table 1), possibly reflecting the presence of infectious virus since no alcohol or other agent was used to wipe the skin after inoculation.
No saliva specimen collected immediately before immunization contained VZV DNA. During the first week after immunization, VZV DNA was detected in saliva of 21 (58%) of 36 subjects (13 men and 8 women). During the 28-day study period, VZV DNA was found in 11 (31%) of 36 subjects (5 men and 6 women) at day 14, in 10 (28%) of 36 subjects (6 men and 4 women) at day 21, and in 2 (6%) of 36 subjects (1 man and 1 woman) at day 28.”
The authors concluded:
“Finally, that while transmission of vaccine virus has not been found among vaccine recipients, the detection of VZV DNA in saliva of Zostavax recipients for up to 28 days suggests that contact with saliva of recently immunized individuals represents a potential source of transmission.”

Study: Varicella Zoster Virus DNA at Inoculation Sites and in Saliva After Zostavax Immunization

Abstract

Analysis of 36 individuals over age 60 years who were immunized with Zostavax revealed varicella zoster virus (VZV) DNA in swabs of skin inoculation sites obtained immediately after immunization in 18 (50%) of 36 subjects (copy number per nanogram of total DNA, 28 to 2.1 × 106) and in saliva collected over 28 days in 21 (58%) of 36 subjects (copy number, 20 to 248). Genotypic analysis of DNA extracted from 9 random saliva samples identified vaccine virus in all instances. In some immunized individuals over age 60, vaccine virus DNA is shed in saliva up to 4 weeks.
Varicella zoster virus (VZV) is a neurotropic alphaherpesvirus. Primary infection usually causes varicella (chicken pox) in children. Airborne VZV enters the nasopharynx and replicates in tonsillar T cells followed by viremia and skin lesions [1, 2]. After primary infection, VZV becomes latent in neurons of cranial nerve ganglia, dorsal root ganglia, and autonomic ganglia along the entire neuraxis. Decades later, VZV reactivates in elderly and immunocompromised individuals to produce zoster (shingles), a syndrome characterized by pain and a vesicular rash on an erythematous base in 1–3 dermatomes. Zoster is common, with ∼1,000,000 cases annually in the United States. Importantly, zoster is often followed by chronic pain (postherpetic neuralgia [PHN]) as well as by meningoencephalitis, cerebellitis, cranial nerve palsies, vasculopathy, myelopathy, and multiple inflammatory diseases of the eye [3].
To prevent zoster and its attendant neurological complications, Zostavax vaccine (Merck) was approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in individuals at least 60 years of age. Over a 3-year period, Zostavax effectively reduced the risk of zoster by 51% and PHN by 66% in nearly 20,000 healthy adults age 60 years or older [4]. Zostavax contains live attenuated VZV, and the package insert warns newly vaccinated individuals to avoid contact for an unspecified time with newborn infants, immunosuppressed individuals, and pregnant women who have not had chicken pox or have not been immunized for chicken pox. Because VZV DNA is present in saliva of zoster patients for at least 2 weeks [5] and VZV in saliva can also be infectious [6], we examined the inoculation site and saliva of Zostavax-vaccinated subjects for the presence of VZV DNA for 4 weeks after immunization.

Study: Live Attenuated Influenza Vaccine Enhances Colonization of Streptococcus pneumoniae and Staphylococcus aureus in Mice
ABSTRACT
Community interactions at mucosal surfaces between viruses, like influenza virus, and respiratory bacterial pathogens are important contributors toward pathogenesis of bacterial disease. What has not been considered is the natural extension of these interactions to live attenuated immunizations, and in particular, live attenuated influenza vaccines (LAIVs). Using a mouse-adapted LAIV against influenza A (H3N2) virus carrying the same mutations as the human FluMist vaccine, we find that LAIV vaccination reverses normal bacterial clearance from the nasopharynx and significantly increases bacterial carriage densities of the clinically important bacterial pathogens Streptococcus pneumoniae (serotypes 19F and 7F) and Staphylococcus aureus (strains Newman and Wright) within the upper respiratory tract of mice. Vaccination with LAIV also resulted in 2- to 5-fold increases in mean durations of bacterial carriage. Furthermore, we show that the increases in carriage density and duration were nearly identical in all aspects to changes in bacterial colonizing dynamics following infection with wild-type (WT) influenza virus. Importantly, LAIV, unlike WT influenza viruses, had no effect on severe bacterial disease or mortality within the lower respiratory tract. Our findings are, to the best of our knowledge, the first to demonstrate that vaccination with a live attenuated viral vaccine can directly modulate colonizing dynamics of important and unrelated human bacterial pathogens, and does so in a manner highly analogous to that seen following wild-type virus infection.
