Vaccine News – Mumps Outbreak Tied to Vaccine Shortfalls

Attacking Ourselves: Top Doctors Reveal Vaccines Turn Our Immune System Against Us
Posted on: Tuesday, February 24th 2015 at 6:45 pm
Written By: Celeste McGovern
The research is hard to ignore, vaccines can trigger autoimmunity with a laundry list of diseases to follow. With harmful and toxic metals as some vaccine ingredients, who is susceptible and which individuals are more at risk?
No one would accuse Yehuda Shoenfeld of being a quack. The Israeli clinician has spent more than three decades studying the human immune system and is at the pinnacle of his profession. You might say he is more foundation than fringe in his specialty; he wrote the textbooks. The Mosaic of Autoimmunity, Autoantibodies, Diagnostic Criteria in Autoimmune Diseases, Infection and Autoimmunity, Cancer and Autoimmunity – the list is 25 titles long and some of them are cornerstones of clinical practice. Hardly surprising that Shoenfeld has been called the “Godfather of Autoimmunology” – the study of the immune system turned on itself in a wide array of diseases from type 1 diabetes to ulcerative colitis and multiple sclerosis.
But something strange is happening in the world of immunology lately and a small evidence of it is that the Godfather of Autoimmunology is pointing to vaccines – specifically, some of their ingredients including the toxic metal aluminum – as a significant contributor to the growing global epidemic of autoimmune diseases. The bigger evidence is a huge body of research that’s poured in in the past 15 years, and particularly in the past five years. Take for example, a recent article published in the journal Pharmacological Research in which Shoenfeld and colleagues issue unprecedented guidelines naming four categories of people who are most at risk for vaccine-induced autoimmunity.
“On one hand,” vaccines prevent infections which can trigger autoimmunity, say the paper’s authors, Alessandra Soriano, of the Department of Clinical Medicine and Rheumatology at the Campus Bio-Medico University in Rome, Gideon Nesher, of the Hebrew University Medical School in Jerusalem and Shoenfeld, founder and head of the Zabludowicz Center of Autoimmune Diseases in the Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer. He is also editor of three medical journals and author of more than 1,500 research papers across the spectrum of medical journalism and founder of the International Congress on Autoimmunology. “On the other hand, many reports that describe post-vaccination autoimmunity strongly suggest that vaccines can indeed trigger autoimmunity. Defined autoimmune diseases that may occur following vaccinations include arthritis, lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus, SLE) diabetes mellitus, thrombocytopenia, vasculitis, dermatomyosiositis, Guillain-Barre syndrome and demyelinating disorders. Almost all types of vaccines have been reported to be associated with the onset of ASIA.”
ASIA – or Autoimmune/inflammatory Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants (also known as Shoenfeld’s syndrome) — first appeared in the Journal of Autoimmunology four years ago. It is an umbrella term for a collection of similar symptoms, including Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, that result after exposure to an adjuvant – an environmental agent including common vaccine ingredients that stimulate the immune system. Since then an enormous body of research, using ASIA as a paradigm, has begun to unravel the mystery of how environmental toxins, particularly the metal aluminum used in vaccines, can trigger an immune system chain reaction in susceptible individuals and may lead to overt autoimmune disease.
Autoimmune disease results when the body’s system meant to attack foreign invaders turns instead to attack part of the body it belongs to (auto is Greek for self). If the immune system is like a national defence system, antibodies are like drones programmed to recognize a certain type of invader (a bacteria say) and to destroy them or mark them for destruction by other special forces. Autoantibodies are like drones that are misidentifying a component of the human body and have launched a sustained attack on it. If they mistakenly target a component of the conductive sheath around neurons, for example, nerve impulses stop conducting properly, muscles go into spasm and coordination fails; multiple sclerosis results. If autoantibodies erroneously focus on joint tissue; rheumatoid arthritis results. If they target the islets of Langerhans in the pancreas, Type 1 diabetes, and so on
“Throughout our lifetime the normal immune system walks a fine line between preserving normal immune reactions and developing autoimmune diseases,” says the paper. “The healthy immune system is tolerant to self-antigens. When self-tolerance is disturbed, dysregulation of the immune system follows, resulting in emergence of an autoimmune disease. Vaccination is one of the conditions that may disturb this homeostasis in susceptible individuals, resulting in autoimmune phenomena and ASIA.”
Who is “susceptible” is the subject of the paper entitled, “Predicting post-vaccination autoimmunity: Who might be at risk?” It lists four categories of people: 1) those who have had a previous autoimmune reaction to a vaccine, 2) anyone with a medical history of autoimmunity, 3) patients with a history of allergic reactions, 4) anyone at high risk of developing autoimmune disease including anyone with a family history of autoimmunity, presence of autoantibodies which are detectable by blood tests and other factors including low vitamin D and smoking.

Study – ‘ASIA’ – autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants.
J Autoimmun. 2011 Feb
Abstract
The role of various environmental factors in the pathogenesis of immune mediated diseases is well established. Of which, factors entailing an immune adjuvant activity such as infectious agents, silicone, aluminium salts and others were associated with defined and non-defined immune mediated diseases both in animal models and in humans. In recent years, four conditions: siliconosis, the Gulf war syndrome (GWS), the macrophagic myofasciitis syndrome (MMF) and post-vaccination phenomena were linked with previous exposure to an adjuvant. Furthermore, these four diseases share a similar complex of signs and symptoms which further support a common denominator.Thus, we review herein the current data regarding the role of adjuvants in the pathogenesis of immune mediated diseases as well as the amassed data regarding each of these four conditions. Relating to the current knowledge we would like to suggest to include these comparable conditions under a common syndrome entitled ASIA, “Autoimmune (Auto-inflammatory) Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants”.

SCIENCE FACT: Chicken pox vaccine is made with “human embryonic lung cell cultures” and human diploid cell cultures from aborted fetal tissue
Monday, March 13, 2017 by: Mike Adams
(Natural News) Every individual or organization that tells you chicken pox vaccines are not made with human fetal tissue cell lines is engaged in science denialism.
It is an irrefutable science fact that varicella (chicken pox) vaccines are made with not just aborted human fetal tissue cell lines, but also cells take from guinea pigs and cows. In effect, a chicken pox vaccine is a multi-species blood and tissue cocktail of DNA and chemicals being mainlined into your tissue and blood.
This is all openly admitted by the CDC itself which lists the excipient ingredients used in common vaccines such as chicken pox, MMR and TDaP. Here’s what the CDC says is used in Varicella (chicken pox) vaccine, current as of January 6, 2017. You can see this list for yourself at this CDC.gov link. If the CDC removes their document, we’ve saved a copy at this Natural News link:
human embryonic lung cell cultures, guinea pig cell cultures, human diploid cell cultures (WI-38), human diploid cell cultures (MRC-5), sucrose, hydrolyzed gelatin, sodium chloride, monosodium L-glutamate, sodium phosphate dibasic, potassium phosphate monobasic, potassium chloride, EDTA (Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid), neomycin, fetal bovine serum

Vaccine Test Results
First results of vaccine investigations
Translated by Erwin Alber from the German original Erste Ergebnisse der Impfstoffuntersuchungen published in Hans Tolzin’s newsletter impf report
(ht) In 2016, several thousand euros were donated to the non-profit association AGBUG e. V. for the investigation of the contents of currently used vaccines. We would like to thank all those who have contributed to this.
Originally, it was intended to only test the vaccines for their mercury content. The association has then however extended the focus of the investigation to include all searchable elements.
AGBUG has now published the results of the first batch on its website, so far without any evaluation! All those of you who have are knowledgeable about the toxic effects of particular elements are invited to contribute their expertise. Please send your feedback by e-mail to redaktion@impf-report.de or post under this article as a comment.

What You Didn’t Know About the Aborted Baby Parts in Your Vaccines

Families With Vaccine-Damaged Children Are Being Bullied Into Silence
Silencing victims of medical mishaps, is not unusual. In fact, it is almost expected these days, with “corruption” and “corporation” almost being synonymous terms.
For one family in the United Kingdom, though, things have gone to a whole new level. This family has received death threats and warnings to keep quiet about the horrible damage done to their daughter.
In 1993, the Marchant family’s 14-month-old daughter received what was supposed to be just aregular MMR vaccine. Before receiving her vaccination, baby Jodie said, “Love you!” to her dad in the waiting room at the doctor’s office. Everything seemed to be going okay — until Mr. Marchant heard his child scream.
As they would later learn,though they thought their child was being given a standard MMR vaccine, this was not the case. In fact, it turned out their child was given an untested 8-in-1 vaccine illegally — a vaccine that would permanently damage their perfectly healthy baby.
After taking their baby girl, Jodie, home from her vaccination appointment, her parents noticed she was shivering, shaking, screaming and running a fever. Like any parent would, the Marchants consulted with a doctor immediately. The doctor insisted Jodie was just suffering from a virus and there was nothing to worry about. Sadly, this would instead become the day Jodie was left permanently disabled, never again to be her normal self.
Jodie began suffering from seizures, incontinence of both bowels and bladder, and acid reflux. She also lost the ability to speak, stopped walking and no longer made eye contact. Jodie suffered with near-constant pain and was inconsolable. And with growing numbers of vaccine-damaged children being reported (and then swept under the rug), doctors merely diagnosed Jodie with autism.

Science Teacher May Be Disciplined for Urging Students Be Informed of Vaccination Risks
by Kate Raines
Published March 9, 2017
In March 2015, science teacher Timothy Sullivan approached public health nurses administering vaccines to high school students at his school in Waterford, Ontario, Canada and asked whether they had appropriately informed the students about the potential risks of the shots they were giving. He noted that the teenagers were required to give informed consent and the nurses, therefore, had the obligation to make sure they were fully informed.1
Mr. Sullivan also made the point that, “some of the components in the vaccines were deemed ‘toxic’ in his science lab.” The nurse allegedly answered that they alerted parents and teens about common vaccine risks like fever or soreness at the injection site and she claimed that “a screening tool allows nurses to assess if there are any underlying conditions that would trigger a more serious reaction among students” and added that “the risk of death from receiving a vaccine is so very, very rare.”1
Who Decides What Facts Can or Cannot Be Taught?
The complaints against Mr. Sullivan appear to have focused on how disruptive his comments were to the planned vaccination event rather than the accuracy or inaccuracy of his views. The reality of vaccine risks for death and serious side effects has been acknowledged by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH). All of these organizations have stated that vaccines may cause adverse reactions and death in a small percentage of patients. According to the CDC, “although immunization has successfully reduced the incidence of vaccine-preventable diseases, vaccination can cause both minor and, rarely, serious side effects.”2
The CDC acknowledges the “possible” though “rare” association between “hepatitis B vaccine and anaphylaxis; measles vaccine and a) thrombocytopenia and b) possible risk for death resulting from anaphylaxis or disseminated disease in immunocompromised persons; diphtheria and tetanus toxoids and pertussis vaccine (DTP) and chronic encephalopathy; and tetanus-toxoid-containing vaccines and a) Guillain-Barre syndrome, b) brachial neuritis, and c) possible risk for death resulting from anaphylaxis.”2

Doctor Tearfully Apologizes to Parents (and Says NO to Vaccinating the Elderly and Vaccinating Newborns)
February 28, 2017
It’s so moving to hear this doctor apologize, also see what he thinks about vaccinating the elderly and vaccinating newborns?
You know how when someone wrongs you, even if they can’t fix the wrong, just to hear an apology feels better?  Having them acknowledge what happened, and bonus points if they really seem to care, means the world.  That must have been how Polly, from the Vaxxed movie, felt when Dr. Anthony Phan, an internal and geriatric integrative medicine doctor from Johns Hopkins, offered her a tearful and heartfelt apology for all she and other parents have been through with their vaccine-injured kids.
You can watch the entire video below, wait ’til you hear his common sense coming through!  He talks about the flawed data coming from the CDC and how he prayed asking God for insight, started reading more and learning about integrated medicine, and then stopped vaccinating his patients.  He searched for the Truth, and then STOPPED vaccinating.

Vaccine court confirms healthy 13 year-old boy was made tetraplegic by the chicken pox vaccine
Tuesday, January 03, 2017 by: Mike Adams
(Natural News) The debate about whether vaccines cause severe damage and harm to children is over. Anyone claiming vaccines cause no harm is willfully ignorant of reality, as U.S. courts have concluded, over and over again, that vaccines provably cause serious and permanent damage to children.
The latest such ruling to garner attention concerns a 13 year-old boy who was made tetraplegic (loss of function in all four limbs) following a chicken pox vaccination. After five years of battling the secretive “vaccine court” — run by Health and Human Services and founded for the purpose of denying vaccine damaged children due process via the regular court system — the evidence of harm from the vaccine was so irrefutable and conclusive that HHS had no choice but to declare the boy’s injuries were caused solely by the vaccine.
This federal courts document reveals:
On November 28, 2014, Respondent filed an amended report pursuant to Vaccine Rule
4(c) in which she concedes that Petitioner is entitled to compensation in this case. Specifically, Respondent agrees that “a preponderance of the evidence establishes that petitioner’s TM was caused-in-fact by the administration of his August 12, 2009 varicella vaccine, and that petitioner’s TM is not due to factors unrelated to the administration of the August 12, 2009 varicella vaccine.”  Amended Rule 4 Report at 1-2.
A special master may determine whether a petitioner is entitled to compensation based upon the record.  A hearing is not required … In light of Respondent’s concession and a review of the record, the undersigned finds that Petitioner is entitled to compensation.  This matter shall now proceed to the damages phase.
Vaccine proven to have seriously harmed this child… now the payoff phase begins so the vaccine industry can keep maiming other children with impunity

Mumps Outbreak Tied to Vaccine Shortfalls
By Jade Scipioni Published March 15, 2017 Health Care FOXBusiness
A CDC spokesperson tells FOX Business that while it is investigating many possible factors contributing to the increase of reported cases, it is looking into the possibility that the “protective effect of the vaccine decreases over time.”
“There hasn’t been any evidence to suggest that the MMR vaccine does not protect against circulating mumps strains. However, outbreaks have occurred in highly-vaccinated communities, particularly in close-contact settings, despite the protection afforded by mumps vaccination,” Ian Branam, a CDC press officer, tells FOX Business.
According to the CDC, MMR-II prevents most, but not all, cases of mumps and complications caused by the disease. It says two doses of the vaccine are 88% effective at protecting against mumps; one dose is 78% effective.
However, Paul Offit, MD and director of the Vaccine Education Center at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, says a third dose of the vaccine may be needed in light of the current reported outbreaks, and may be a quicker solution than developing a new and stronger vaccine.
“Could you make a better mumps vaccine which has no side effects and has better protection? I think that you could, but it would probably be a two-decade long effort and it would mean a company like Merck, which is the sole manufacturer in the United States, will essentially be competing against themselves — so I don’t see that happening. I think the more likely scenario is that you give out a third dose of the current vaccine at 11 or 13 years of age,” Offit tells FOX Business.
The CDC says it is already considering whether a third dose should be added to the current immunization guidelines.

Vaccine Mechanisms in Autism
Background

1983: A healthy-born child according to the CDC vaccination schedule receives 6 vaccines in the first 15 months of life. The autism rate is 1:10,000.
2017: A healthy-born child according to the CDC vaccination schedule receives 23 vaccines in the first 15 months of life. The autism rate is 1:68.

This means in the last 30 years, the prevalence of autism has risen 14,700% [3]. The projected costs for the United States would rise to more than $1 trillion by 2025 [4] if prevalence continues to rise at rates seen over last decade alone.
I want to tell you how autism comes about. Just to clarify: I am not against the concept of vaccination. I am against the toxins contained within vaccines. If you think the vaccine industry has tested all the ingredients on humans, you are deep in the woods. I invite you to examine the scientifically documented data and discover that what is happening is beyond concerning. Vaccines ARE linked to autism. And this is why.
A vaccine’s contents are injected into the muscle. From there it elicits a specific response from the immune system. Additives called adjuvants are put in vaccines to make the immune system response more pronounced and therefore more effective. The objective of adding adjuvants to vaccines is that adjuvants prime protective memory CD8 T-cells for future exposure. [29]. When your immune system is responding to the vaccine ingredients, it creates memory cells that will be ready to kill the real bacteria or virus when exposed to it in the future [6]. Vaccines have tiny particles of the virus or bacteria in it that your immune system recognizes as full blown real viral or bacterial threat.

Yale School of Medicine: Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Vaccinations
March 17, 2017
by Lori M. Gregory
Health Impact News
There are questions being raised about children who are diagnosed with neuropsychiatric disorders and their association with vaccinations, according to the results of a pilot case study published in Frontiers in Psychiatry/Child & Adolescent Psychiatry [1] last month.
The study, which was conducted by researchers from the Yale University School of Medicine and the Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine Department of Public Health Sciences, is based on the principle that the immune system plays a key role in normal brain development and in the pathobiology of several neuropsychiatric disorders.  As a result, the autoimmune and inflammatory disorders affecting the central nervous system have been found to be “temporally associated with the antecedent administration of various vaccines.”
Data Suggests Link Between Influenza Vaccine and Anorexia Nervosa Diagnosis
Researchers examined the association between the administration of vaccines in children ages 6-15 years old who have been diagnosed with conditions such as anorexia nervosa, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), tic disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), major depressive disorder and bipolar disorder.
What they discovered was that there is data to suggest that children who were newly diagnosed with anorexia nervosa were more likely to have been vaccinated in the previous 3 months than those in the control group.  They also found that children vaccinated with the Influenza vaccinations during the prior 3, 6, and 12 months were also associated with incident diagnoses of anorexia nervosa, OCD, and an anxiety disorder.
Several other associations were also significant, including correlations between hepatitis A with anorexia nervosa and OCD; hepatitis B with anorexia nervosa, and meningitis with anorexia nervosa and chronic tic disorder.
The principal findings suggest that children with OCD, anorexia nervosa, anxiety disorder, and tic disorder were more likely to have received influenza vaccine during the preceding year.
U.S. Special Claims Court Had 1188% Increase in Payouts for Influenza Vaccine Injury
The discovery of the possible link between the influenza vaccine and neurological disorders is significant in this study, especially in light of the fact that the U.S.Special Claims Court had a 1188% increase in payouts to Americans for influenza vaccine injury from 2014-2015 [2, 3].
(Because Congress passed a law in 1986 providing pharmaceutical companies who make vaccines with immunity from prosecution, Americans seeking compensation for vaccine injury must instead sue the U.S. Government in special claims court.)

US Vax Court Sees 400% Spike in Vaccine Injuries, Flu Shot Wins Top Honors for Biggest Payout
Vaccine injury cases are on the rise people, so if you’ve got your head in the sand and you haven’t been paying attention, it’s time to wake up.
Here’s a little background for those of you just getting started.
Ronnie Reagan… almost 30 years ago to the day, the 40th president of the United States signed away the rights of Americans to sue vaccine makers, replacing them with a law that forces families who have suffered vaccine injury or death to sue the U.S. government instead of a pharmaceutical company.
As a result, special masters from the United States Special Claims Court, also known for our purposes as the vaccine court, are given full authority as judge with no jury to decide the fate of Americans who have had the unfortunate ‘luck’ to be stricken by a vaccine injury — which can range from chronic, mild symptoms to death.
Once a year, this non-traditional court provides the public with a glimpse into its inner workings, by issuing an annual report on its website — a ritual that happens every January.  The report is sent to the President of Congress, otherwise known as the Vice President of the United States, where it is intended to serve as a bell weather monitoring reactions the American public may be having to vaccinations that are increasingly becoming forced by government mandates around the country.
Great, right?  Accountability in action?
Wrong.
The report, which is consistently ignored by mainstream media/politicians/health officials and the CDC, lies dormant on the reports page of the U.S. Special Claims Court website.
No headlines, no press release, no analysis, no alert the media, no nothing.

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.

Vaccine News – Vaccine Fanaticism

DR Brownstein – Flu Vaccine “Moderately” Effective? FAKE NEWS!
Yesterday (February 17, 2017), Foxnews.com posted a story titled, “Flu Vaccine is only moderately protective this year, CDC says.” (1)   The article stated, “Overall, getting a flu shot cut one’s risk of contracting flu and needing to see a doctor by 48 percent this season, when the effectiveness of the various components of the vaccine were assessed together, according to the report published in the CDC’s online journal Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR).”
This story is a perfect example of fake news.
I have seen a lot of flu and flu-like illnesses in my practice over the past few weeks.  Since I have been telling my patients not to take the flu vaccine, since it fails nearly all who take it, I wondered if the current flu vaccine was actually working to prevent someone from getting the flu.  So, I looked up the MMWR to see how effective the flu vaccine really is.  The report can be found here: https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/66/wr/mm6606a2.htm?s_cid=mm6606a2_w
The mind-numbing report (anyone who tries to read it will have their mind numbed) states, “Interim estimates of vaccine effectiveness based on data collected from November 28, 2016, through February 4, 2017, indicate that overall the influenza vaccine has been 48% (95% confidence interval [CI] = 37%–57%) effective in preventing influenza-related medical visits across all age groups…”
The news media picked up the 48% effectiveness number reported above.  However, let me explain that number a little better.  The 48% claim of effectiveness of the flu vaccine is a relative risk number.  The relative risk is a statistical term that is universally used in medical studies in order to make a poorly performing drug or therapy look much better than it actually is.  I have pointed out the fallacy of relying on this statistical manipulation in promoting the use of statin medications in my book, The Statin Disaster.
So what is the true effectiveness of the flu vaccine?  That number would be expressed by the absolute risk reduction.  This is a statistical term that best exemplifies if a drug or therapy is truly effective or not.  In the case of the MMWR report on the flu vaccine, the true reduction in the flu vaccine in preventing influenza-related medical visits across all age groups is around 1%.  I can’t give you exact numbers because the MMWR report did not supply the actual numbers.  When the true numbers come out, I will write again.  But, a 50% relative risk reduction means that the absolute risk reduction is probably around 1%.  This means that the flu shot failed 99% who took it—they received no benefit from this year’s flu vaccine. In other words, you have to inject 100 people with the 2016-2017  flu vaccine to prevent one case of the flu. The other 99 people were not protected.
(Note:   I have written about how the flu vaccine fails 97-99% who take it in a previous post.  You can read it here: http://blog.drbrownstein.com/the-truth-about-the-flu-vaccine/)

CDC – Update: Influenza Activity — United States, October 2, 2016–February 4, 2017
February 17, 2017
Virologic Surveillance
U.S. World Health Organization (WHO) and National Respiratory and Enteric Virus Surveillance System laboratories, which include both public health and clinical laboratories throughout the United States, contribute to virologic surveillance for influenza.
During October 2, 2016–February 4, 2017, clinical laboratories in the United States tested 392,901 respiratory specimens for influenza viruses, 38,244 (9.7%) of which were positive (Figure 1). During the week ending February 4, 2017 (week 5), 27,409 specimens were tested, 5,722 (20.9%) of which were positive for influenza. Among these, 5,017 (87.7%) were positive for influenza A viruses and 705 (12.3%) were positive for influenza B viruses.
Public health laboratories in the United States tested 38,141 respiratory specimens collected during October 2, 2016–February 4, 2017. Among these, 15,781 were positive for influenza (Figure 2), 14,606 (92.6%) were positive for influenza A viruses, and 1,174 (7.4%) were positive for influenza B viruses. Among the 14,335 (98.1%) influenza A viruses subtyped, 13,973 (97.5%) were influenza A (H3N2) and 362 (2.5%) were influenza A (H1N1)pdm09 virus. Among the 851 (72.5%) influenza B viruses for which lineage was determined, 460 (54.1%) belonged to the B/Yamagata lineage and 391 (45.9%) belonged to the B/Victoria lineage.
Age was reported for 13,306 influenza-positive patients, among whom 1,048 (7.9%) were aged 0–4 years, 4,041 (30.4%) were aged 5–24 years, 4,029 (30.3%) were aged 25–64 years, and 4,188 (31.5%) were aged ≥65 years. Influenza A (H3N2) viruses predominated in each age group, representing a range of 82.3% of influenza-positives in persons aged 0–4 years to 93.6% in persons aged ≥65 years. The largest number of influenza B viruses were reported in persons aged 5–24 years.

CDC recommends shingles vaccine made of cow skin, residual components of human DNA!
February 23, 2016
If we are to follow the recommendation of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), people 60 years of age and older should be injected with Zostavax (or Zoster), a (carcinogenic) shingles vaccine.
According to “experts,” Zoster is supposed to reduce the risk of developing shingles, as well as the pain incurred by some elderly people. ACIP also advises people who’ve already had shingles to still get the vaccine to “prevent future occurrences.”
Now, firstly, if you’ve had shingles, the odds of having it again are slim. Secondly, Zostavax contains monosodium glutamate (MSG), a known neurotoxin which, when injected, can cause central nervous system disorders and brain damage. Thirdly, the shingles vaccine contains gelatin derived from the collagen inside pig skin and bones, which, when injected, poses the risk of infection from synthetic growth hormones. Fourthly, senior citizens are more likely to already have compromised immunity, thanks to other vaccines, flu shots, pharmaceuticals and food that’s lacking in nutrition (especially for those with unhealthy lifestyles).
Given that ACIP specifically advises people 60 years of age or older to have this injection, it really makes you wonder — what’s so magical about ages 50 through 59 that makes people of this age supposedly safe from shingles? Well, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC) website, “protection beyond 5 years is uncertain; therefore, adults receiving the vaccine before age 60 years might not be protected when their risks for shingles and its complications are greatest.” In other words, the vaccine is only good for a few years, then you’d have to get another one, and another, and another…you get the drift.
While the CDC warns people with weakened immune systems not to get the shingles vaccine, millions of Americans are regularly prescribed antibiotics which destroy healthy gut flora and severely compromise immunity. Moreover, the CDC also warns pregnant women not to get the shingles vaccine. Okay, how many 60-year-old pregnant women have you seen again?
Now, let’s take a look at the list of ingredients in Zoster, as published in the CDC website:
“Shingles Vaccine Ingredients: Sucrose, hydrolyzed (means reduced with chemicals) porcine (pig) gelatin, monosodium L-glutamate, sodium phosphate dibasic, potassium phosphate monobasic, neomycin, potassium chloride, residual components of MRC-5 cells including DNA and protein, and of course, bovine calf serum.”
For your information, bovine calf serum, which is extracted from cow skin, causes connective tissue disorders, arthritis, lupus, shortness of breath, chest pain and, of course, skin reactions when injected to humans. Doesn’t shingles cause painful skin rashes in the first place? Where’s the logic here?

Vaccine Fanaticism
In their efforts to force their beliefs on those around them, vaccine fanatics will go to great lengths to try to convince others, and to demonize anyone who doesn’t share their point of view. This kind of zealous ideal used to be reserved for matters of religion. Religious fanatics also tended to demonize others, these were the people who ardently believed that their religion is the only “true religion” and everyone else is going to hell. Vaccine fanatics believe that they are the only scientifically minded ones, and everyone else is scientifically illiterate. In reality, it is more scientifically illiterate to blatantly ignore the dangers involved in vaccinations. (1)
Even the manufacturers of vaccines freely admit that there are risks involved. The claim by vaccine manufacturers is that the benefits of vaccinating outweigh the risks. As more and more vaccines are brought to market there appears to be no end in sight to all of the “necessary risks.”
Just this past year, the CDC issued a public apology over the flu vaccine as it was found to not be effective against the current strains of the flu. It also came to light that the tetanus vaccines being forced upon women in Kenya were laced with chemicals that caused sterilization. The women and girls who received these tetanus shots were not informed of the dangers. Even with numerous scientific studies to support the fact that vaccines are not as effective as fanatics claim and that in fact, they’re very dangerous, vaccine fanatics simply ignore the reality of the dangers of vaccines in their quest to force vaccinations on the rest of society.

Genital Warts Vaccine Tested on Infants
February 28, 2017
Story at-a-glance –
In a trial sponsored by the National Institute of Child Health in Hungary, in collaboration with Merck, researchers are testing the 4-valent Gardasil vaccine in children to treat recurrent respiratory paillomatosis (RRP), a rare childhood disease caused by HPV
Initially the study was to enroll children as young as 1 year old with RRP and administer three doses of HPV vaccine to “assess response to vaccination,” but recent study details indicate the tests are ongoing in children as young as 28 days old
The study’s status remains unknown, as it has not yet been reported as completed
By Dr. Mercola
Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines, marketed under the brand names Gardasil and Cervarix, are among the most controversial vaccinations offered in the U.S. — and the controversy, it appears, is only slated to get worse.
Gardasil vaccine, manufactured by Merck, was fast-tracked to the U.S. market in 2006, without adequate evidence for safety and effectiveness in children. It was only studied in fewer than 1200 girls under 16 years old, who were followed up for about two years, before it was licensed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).1
The vaccine was originally touted as an anti-cervical cancer vaccine that should be given to all girls and women aged 9 to 26 years old, despite the fact it was rushed to licensure without first proving that it actually prevented cervical cancer, especially when given to pre-adolescent girls.2
Within five years, U.S. public health officials broadened HPV vaccine recommendations to include all pre-adolescent boys as well, in order to target cancers of the penis, anus and back of throat.3
Originally the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommended a three-dose HPV vaccine regimen, but in October, 2016, the CDC changed its recommendation to two doses for girls and boys aged 9 to 14 years old to be given six months apart.
The CDC still recommends that three doses be given to females and males who get the vaccine between the ages of 15 and 26 years old.4
Since sexual contact with an infected person is a high-risk factor for both hepatitis B and HPV, public health officials maintain that hepatitis B and HPV vaccines need to be given to children before they become sexually active.
It is thought that sometimes pregnant women with active HPV infection that has not been cleared can transmit HPV to their newborns during the birth process.5
This may be why there has been speculation that HPV vaccines may one day be recommended for much younger children, even infants, similar to the hepatitis B vaccine, which is given to newborns in hospital nurseries before hospital discharge.6
Authors of a 2012 article published in the medical journal, Vaccine, called for a “reframing” of global cervical cancer prevention policies and stated:
“On a global scale, vaccination of newborns and infants is well established and has developed a successful working infrastructure.
The hepatitis B virus (HBV) vaccination programs offer a model for HPV introduction in which newborn and infant immunization achieves a rapid reduction in the prevalence of the HBV carrier rates in immunized cohorts of children, and of liver cirrhosis and liver cancer decades later.”7

Vaccine News – Study – INFANTS RECEIVING MERCURY-CONTAINING VACCINES DEVELOPED SPEECH DISORDERS, SLEEP DISORDERS, AND AUTISM, ACCORDING TO CDC SCIENTISTS

Dr. Andrew Moulden: Every Vaccine Produces Harm
by John P. Thomas
Health Impact News
Canadian physician Dr. Andrew Moulden provided clear scientific evidence to prove that every dose of vaccine given to a child or an adult produces harm. The truth that he uncovered was rejected by the conventional medical system and the pharmaceutical industry. Nevertheless, his warning and his message to America remains as a solid legacy of the man who stood up against big pharma and their program to vaccinate every person on the Earth.
Dr Moulden died unexpectedly in November of 2013 at age 49.
Because of the strong opposition from big pharma concerning Dr. Moulden’s research, I became concerned that the name of this brilliant researcher and his life’s work had nearly been deleted from the internet. His reputation was being disparaged, and his message of warning and hope was being distorted and buried without a tombstone.
I prepared a series of articles as a tribute to a great physician and as a memorial to a courageous individual who was not afraid to speak the truth about medical corruption and a flawed healthcare system that does more to harm health than it does to cure disease.
This is the first in a series of four articles about Dr. Moulden — the man, the physician, and the powerful advocate for ending all vaccine use. In future articles, I will summarize his detailed scientific evidence, which shows how vaccine damage occurs. I will explain the common mechanisms behind vaccine damage and how vaccines harm the health of everyone who receives them regardless of whether or not they notice any adverse reactions at the time they take the shots.
Dr. Moulden stated:
What we have done to each other [with vaccines] has produced the most profound damage to humankind by humankind in the history of humanity. And the reason why we got here is partly because of:
Our arrogance in thinking that we know everything. In physiology and medicine we do not know everything!
[Our greed] to advance our own self-interest to make money, to sell products and to advance corporate alliances. Commercialization has overtaken the fundamental human value of “do unto others as you would have others do unto you.” When society turns toward this human value, then we would all be working together for the greater good of each other. [However, other values have become more important] I don’t care whose feet I step on or how I get there as long as my American dream is realized. I don’t care who has to pay for it on the way of getting there. [1]
Dr. Moulden’s Credibility
Was Dr. Moulden a crackpot as some sources claim, or was he a brilliant physician and researcher? This series of articles will set the record straight, and summarize the contribution that his work has made to medical knowledge.
When I evaluate the credibility of people who are unknown to me, I begin by seeking answers to a few basic questions. For example: Is this person offering opinion, or can he or she back up the claims with valid science? Does he have educational credentials? Are there other physicians and scientists who support his or her beliefs and recommendations? Is this person controlled by the pharmaceutical industry, allopathic medical associations, or the US FDA (US Food and Drug Administration)? And finally, what do Quackwatch and their friends have to say about the person?
Dr. Moulden had a PhD in Clinical Psychology and Neuropsychology. He had a master’s degree in child development, and was also a medical doctor. [2] His work was respected by other researchers who don’t march to the drumbeat of the pharmaceutical companies. Dr. Moulden was a threat to the pharmaceutical industry, and their Quackwatch family of 21 related websites treated him as an enemy. [3, 4]

Vaccine Contraindications: Six People Who Should Not Be Vaccinated
The debate surrounding vaccinations is a fierce one, and personally, I don’t like to argue about it. I’m happy to make the right choices for my family while you make the right ones for yours. (I personally have suffered adverse reactions to vaccinations.) It’s ok to have different opinions, really it is. But there are a lot of folks out there who think everyone should be vaccinated, period, and those who choose not to vaccinate should be penalized or worse.
Listen. I get that people are scared and there’s a lot of fear-mongering in the media. But let’s be realistic here: vaccinations are a medical procedure. There are risks. Vaccinations are not right for everyone. There are at least six types of people in particular who should avoid vaccinations, and below, I’ll spell it out.
Vaccine Contraindications
Just like a particular surgery or prescription medication won’t work well for everyone, vaccinations are not a good choice for everyone.
Some people, in particular, are much more likely to have adverse reactions to vaccinations, including:

– Those with an autoimmune disease
– Children born to a mother with an autoimmune disease
– Anyone who is sick
– Pregnant women
– Those who have previously had a reaction to a vaccination

One size does not fit all
Clearly, vaccinations are not the right choice for everyone, and each family should decide what is right for them and their children. When parents are aware of vaccine contraindications, they can make informed and safer choices for their children.
Please share this post so that other parents can learn about vaccine contraindications and decide if vaccination is right for their children.

USA: Highest Vaccination Rate in the World Has the Worst Health
by PAUL FASSA
That “worst health” label includes a ranking of 34th in the world with infant mortality. In other words, the USA has the 34th worst infant survival with its highest rate of vaccinations. Some are directly from multiple vaccinations administered.
But the USA leads the world in infant vaccinations, those administered during the first year after their births – 26 vaccinations during that time.
The only vaccination I recall receiving during early childhood, circa 1948, was the smallpox vaccine, the one that left a circle of shallow pockmarks on the upper arm, a non-ink tattoo that proved you had received that vaccine. Months later there was the booster shot which gave me a vacation of several days away from my first grade teacher while sitting out the chicken pox.
During Naval training the mass vaccination high pressure hand held gun that replaced syringes and needles was tried on us with the polio shot. I wound up with a vacation in the base infirmary with an extended period of the flu. Between those two, there may have been a tetanus shot or two.
From the Healthy Home Economist:

-In1950, there were 3 childhood vaccines typically given when a child entered school.
-In 1983, there were 10 recommended vaccines by the age of 6 years old (24 doses, 7 injections, 4 oral doses for polio).
-In 2010, the CDC vax schedule totaled 68 doses with more than half given by the time a child was only a year and a half old.
-In 2016, the schedule has increased to 74 doses by age 17 with 53 injections and 3 oral doses of rotavirus.

The number of vaccines included in the current childhood vaccine schedule has quadrupled over the past 60 years, with several demanding multiple injections and boosters. During this exponential rise of CDC “recommended” schedules, the health of American children has plummeted.
Autoimmune diseases, learning disabilities, food allergies, chronic ailments, and childhood obesity have all risen. The overall health of this nation ranks very low compared to all other industrialized nations, dead last in most areas.
Vaccine false dogma is so heavy hardly anyone with authority, even in mainstream media, makes the connection between poor health with high vaccination rates. Instead, more, three added for 2016, are getting enforced by mandate or coerced by pediatricians who have the right to refuse medical care on kids who aren’t vaccinated.
Destroying Health with Vaccines is Good Business

50 Studies the AAP Avoided to Mention
There is a robust, worldwide body of published science from highly esteemed scientists questioning the safety of many different aspects of vaccines-how come we never hear from them? The majority of the most compelling science has been published since 2010. Below find 50 such studies to consider, sorted chronologically, and note that these studies only represent a portion of the published work implicating vaccinations in a wide variety of negative health outcomes.
The American Academy of Pediatrics made representations to President Trump in a letter dated 2/7/2017 that are utterly indefensible and inaccurate, as any rational review of the studies below quickly demonstrates. For example, the AAP wrote:
“Claims that vaccines are unsafe when administered according to expert recommendations have been disproven by a robust body of medical literature…we write to express our unequivocal support for the safety of vaccines.”
We contend that the AAP’s statements to the President are baseless, reckless, and easily refuted. The AAP’s letter alone supports the President’s desire to field a Vaccine Safety Commission and do all we can to make vaccines as safe as possible.

Vaccine news – CDC Knew Its Vaccine Program Was Exposing Children to Dangerous Mercury Levels Since 1999

World-famous scientist issues warning about genetically modified vaccines
Here’s a look at just some of the genetically modified vaccines on the market today — and the risks we know about:
RotaTeq: This is supposed to protect babies from rotavirsues, and lots of kids get three doses before they even reach six months of age. But it’s actually made from a cross between cow and human DNA, and clinical trials found that infants are twice as likely to suffer seizures within the first two weeks after they get the vaccine.
Flucelvax: This new flu jab is being marketed like crazy this time of year. But what they’re not telling you is that it was actually made by combining human flu strains with kidney cells from a cocker spaniel! And while Flucelvax has only been around for a couple years, we already know that injecting ourselves with dog DNA is bad news. The vaccine nearly doubles your risk of a painful muscle condition called myalgia.
HPV vaccines, like Gardasil: I’ve told you stories about healthy, young girls who ended up paralyzed, unable to feed themselves and incapable of even attending school shortly after getting these shots. And currently, Virginia, Rhode Island and the District of Columbia require a Gardasil shot just to attend school.
And there are a whole bunch of new genetically-spliced recombinant vaccines coming down the pike, including one for measles.
Every time scientists try to warn us about the dangers of vaccines, the mainstream bends over backwards to call them quacks. But, trust me, nobody is saying that about Stephen Hawking.

Stephen Hawking Says the Human Race is in Danger and it’s our Own Fault
I feel so smart today. It isn’t often that the scientific merit of my ideas is confirmed by Stephen Hawking.   Today, there is an article in The Guardian, reposted in the MSN news, titled, “Most threats to humans come from science and technology, warns Hawking”. Excerpt:
“Speaking to the Radio Times ahead of the BBC Reith Lecture, in which he will explain the science of black holes, Hawking said most of the threats humans now face come from advances in science and technology, such as nuclear weapons and genetically engineered viruses.”
Genetically engineered viruses? Where have I heard that before? Oh, that’s what drug companies put into vaccines that doctors, nurses and pharmacists inject directly into and/or put in the mouths of people – vaccines for illnesses that include Hepatitis B, HPV, flu, and rotavirus.
The vaccine for Hepatitis B was the first to be made from a genetically engineered virus as announced in this New York Times article from July 1986 (please see – the reader will appreciate the historical significance). Note who, in 1986, the Hepatitis B vaccine was recommended for:
Dr. Young recommended vaccinations with either hepatitis vaccine for dental and medical workers, susceptible homosexuals and drug users, the newborn children of infected women, and, among other groups, travelers to parts of the world where hepatitis B is rampant, such as southeast Asia, sub-Saharan Africa, and parts of the Middle East.
That was a couple of years before they got the no doubt economically motivated crazy idea to assault every baby born in this country with the full series of this genetically modified concoction, the first dose of which would be given by their decree when the baby is in medical custody, in hospital, within 12 hours of birth.

ALUMINUM contained in vaccines is a metalloestrogen
Study – Metalloestrogens: an emerging class of inorganic xenoestrogens with potential to add to the oestrogenic burden of the human breast.
J Appl Toxicol. 2006 May-Jun;26(3):191-7.
Abstract
Many compounds in the environment have been shown capable of binding to cellular oestrogen receptors and then mimicking the actions of physiological oestrogens. The widespread origin and diversity in chemical structure of these environmental oestrogens is extensive but to date such compounds have been organic and in particular phenolic or carbon ring structures of varying structural complexity. Recent reports of the ability of certain metal ions to also bind to oestrogen receptors and to give rise to oestrogen agonist responses in vitro and in vivo has resulted in the realisation that environmental oestrogens can also be inorganic and such xenoestrogens have been termed metalloestrogens. This report highlights studies which show metalloestrogens to include aluminium, antimony, arsenite, barium, cadmium, chromium (Cr(II)), cobalt, copper, lead, mercury, nickel, selenite, tin and vanadate. The potential for these metal ions to add to the burden of aberrant oestrogen signalling within the human breast is discussed.

13 Year-Old Boy Permanently Disabled from Chicken Pox Vaccine Wins His Case in Vaccine Court
A young man was recently awarded compensation in the United States Court of Federal Claims Vaccine Court, for injuries he sustained after being administered the hepatitis A and varicella vaccinations in 2009.  After five long years of litigation, Health and Human Services (HHS), the Respondent in all vaccine injury cases, conceded that the varicella vaccination did in fact cause RD’s vaccine injury, transverse myelitis, which has left him a tetraplegic.
In November 2014, HHS conceded that the vaccination caused RD’s injuries.  Even with this concession, his case continued for another year in the damages phase, during which time the parties continued to negotiate the amount of damages that RD would receive for his injuries.  Although he was compensated for his suffering and injuries, the monetary award will never compensate for the lifelong effects this young man is suffering from his vaccine injury.
Five Long Years
RD was only 13 when his life changed forever.  At a routine well-child visit in 2009, the doctor informed RD’s parents that he was due to receive the hepatitis A and varicella vaccinations.  His parents complied with the doctor’s order and RD received the vaccinations.
RD’s mother explained that, at that time in RD’s state, only one dose of varicella vaccine was required and RD had already received one dose of that vaccine.  This second dose that was administered to RD at this well visit was determined to be the cause of RD’s horrific injuries, and it was not even required for him, which his family didn’t realize until it was too late.
About 14 days later, RD began to experience excruciating pain shooting through his body along with tingling, numbness and paralysis of his limbs. After extensive testing and many invasive procedures, RD was diagnosed with transverse myelitis.
RD’s parents filed a case in Vaccine Court, which took over five years to settle. RD and his family faced arduous heartbreak along the way. In the ruling, a representative from the United States Department of Justice agreed that “a preponderance of the evidence establishes that petitioner’s transverse myelitis was caused-in-fact by the administration of his August 12, 2009 varicella vaccine.” [1]
RD’s lawyer, Patricia Finn, stated that:
“The injuries that RD suffered from this vaccine are severe and lifelong.  Even though he has received a significant award as far as the awards in the Vaccine Court go, no amount of money will ever compensate him for what he has lost.
But RD is an amazing young man who has not let this injury stop him in any way.  He has graduated high school with his class, attends a Tier 1 college, and has great aspirations that I know he will achieve despite the challenges he faces because of his injuries.”
RD’s Immune System Attacked His Spine

Ignoring the agency’s own scientific evidence, the CDC’s webpage stubbornly insists that the “two types of mercury to which people may be exposed—methylmercury and ethylmercury—are very different.” The new CDC study directly contradicts this assertion, “There are many commonalities/similarities in the mechanisms of toxic action of methylmercury and ethylmercury …”
The study meticulously details identical toxicity pathways shared by both forms of mercury:
Both ethyl and methyl mercury cause DNA damage or impair DNA synthesis (Burke et al. 2006; Sharpe et al. 2012; Wu et al. 2008).
Both cause oxidative stress/creation of reactive oxygen species (Dreiem and Seegal 2007; Garg and Chang 2006; Myhre et al. 2003; Sharpe et al. 2012; Yin et al. 2007).
Both decrease glutathione activity, thus providing less protection from the oxidative stress caused by MeHg and EtHg (Carocci et al. 2014; Ndountse and Chan (2008); Choi et al. 1996; Franco et al. 2006; Mori et al. 2007; Muller et al. 2001; Ndountse and Chan 2008; Wu et al. 2008).
Both cause effects on cell division by damaging the spindle apparatus during mitosis (Burke et al. 2006; Castoldi et al. 2000; Gribble et al. 2005; Kim et al. 2007; Ou et al. 1999b; Machaty et al. 1999; Rodier et al. 1984).
Both MeHg and EtHg bind to the amino acid cysteine (Clarkson 1995; Wu et al. 2008).
Both MeHg and EtHg strongly inhibit the reacylation of arachidonic acid, thus inhibiting the reincorporation of this fatty acid into membrane phospholipids (Shanker et al. 2002; Verity et al. 1994; Zarini et al. 2006).
Both cause an increase in NOS, causing an overproduction of NO (Chen et al. 2003; Chuu et al. 2001; Shinyashiki et al. 1998).
Both disrupt glutamate homeostasis (Farina et al. 2003a, b; Manfroi et al. 2004; Mutkus et al. 2005; Yin et al. 2007).
Both alter intracellular calcium homeostasis (Elferink 1999; Hare et al. 1993;Kang et al. 2006; Limke et al. 2004b; Machaty et al. 1999; Marty and Atchison1997; Minnema et al. 1987; Peng et al. 2002; Sayers et al. 1993; Sirois and Atchison, 2000; Szalai et al. 1999; Tornquist et al. 1999; Zarini et al. 2006).
Both cause effects on receptor binding/neurotransmitter release involving one or more transmitters (Basu et al. 2008; Coccini et al. 2000; Cooper et al. 2003; Fonfria et al. 2001; Ida-Eto et al. 2011; Ndountse and Chan 2008; Yuan and Atchison 2003).
“This study is a nuclear bomb detonating over the CDC,” Boyd Haley, chairman emeritus of the University of Kentucky Chemistry Department, said. “It should be getting international, front page headlines.”

New Study Confirms That Mercury Is Linked to Autism
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
Two new studies by international teams, including Egyptian scientists, have validated the link between autism and mercury.
In an article published in the journal Metabolic Brain Disease, a team of nine scientists from leading Egyptian universities and medical schools confirmed the causal role of mercury in the onset of autism.
The scientists determined the extent of mercury poisoning in children by measuring urinary excretion of organic compounds called porphyrins, which act as biomarkers for mercury toxicity. The researchers also measured blood levels of mercury and lead. The researchers found a strong relationship between mercury toxicity and the presence of autism and a direct correlation between levels of mercury toxicity and the severity of autism symptoms.
The scientists studied 100 children; 40 with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), 40 healthy individuals and 20 healthy siblings of ASD children. The results showed that the children with ASD had significantly higher mercury levels than healthy children and healthy siblings. Children with the highest mercury levels had the most severe autism symptoms.
At least six American studies have linked autism presence or severity to mercury exposure as determined by measuring urinary porphyrins. The first study, completed by Heyer et al. in 2012 (Autism Res 5:84) showed a correlation between the presence of autism and specific urinary porphyrins associated with mercury toxicity. This affirmed an earlier study by Kern et al. (2011, Pediatr Int 53:147) where specific porphyrins associated with mercury toxicity were significantly higher in ASD children as compared to non-autistic controls. Woods et al. (2010, Environ Health Perspect 118:1450) also saw disordered porphyrin metabolism in autistic kids which was not observed in non-autistic control children. This again suggested increased mercury toxicity associated with autism and autism spectrum disorder.

Study – Altered urinary porphyrins and mercury exposure as biomarkers for autism severity in Egyptian children with autism spectrum disorder
Abstract
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder that affects social, communication, and behavioral development. Recent evidence supported but also questioned the hypothetical role of compounds containing mercury (Hg) as contributors to the development of ASD. Specific alterations in the urinary excretion of porphyrin-containing ring catabolites have been associated with exposure to Hg in ASD patients. In the present study, the level of urinary porphyrins, as biomarkers of Hg toxicity in children with ASD, was evaluated, and its correlation with severity of the autistic behavior further explored. A total of 100 children was enrolled in the present study. They were classified into three groups: children with ASD (40), healthy controls (40), and healthy siblings of the ASD children (20). Children with ASD were diagnosed using DSM-IV-TR, ADI-R, and CARS tests. Urinary porphyrins were evaluated within the three groups using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), after plasma evaluation of mercury (Hg) and lead (Pb) in the same groups. Results showed that children with ASD had significantly higher levels of Hg, Pb, and the porphyrins pentacarboxyporphyrin, coproporphyrin, precoproporphyrin, uroporphyrins, and hexacarboxyporphyrin compared to healthy controls and healthy siblings of the ASD children. However, there was no significant statistical difference in the level of heptacarboxyporphyrin among the three groups, while a significant positive correlation between the levels of coproporphyrin and precoproporphyrin and autism severity was observed. Mothers of ASD children showed a higher percentage of dental amalgam restorations compared to the mothers of healthy controls suggesting that high Hg levels in children with ASD may relate to the increased exposure to Hg from maternal dental amalgam during pregnancy and lactation. The results showed that the ASD children in the present study had increased blood Hg and Pb levels compared with healthy control children indicating that disordered porphyrin metabolism might interfere with the pathology associated with the autistic neurologic phenotype. The present study indicates that coproporphyrin and precoproporhyrin may be utilized as possible biomarkers for heavy metal exposure and autism severity in children with ASD.

CDC Knew Its Vaccine Program Was Exposing Children to Dangerous Mercury Levels Since 1999
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Lyn Redwood, RN, MSN
Jan. 18, 2017 08:12PM EST
Uncovered documents show that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) knew that infant vaccines were exposing American children to mercury far in excess of all federal safety guidelines since 1999. The documents, created by a FDA consulting toxicologist, show how federal regulators concealed the dangerous impacts and lied to the public.
PDF source
In 1997, Congress passed the FDA Modernization Act. A provision of that statute required the FDA to “compile a list of drugs that contain intentionally introduced mercury compounds, and provide a quantitative and qualitative analysis of the mercury compounds on the list.” In response, manufacturers reported the use of the mercury-based preservative, thimerosal, in more than 30 licensed vaccines.
FDA’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER) was responsible for adding up the cumulative exposure to mercury from infant vaccines, a simple calculation that, astonishingly, had never been performed by either the FDA or the CDC. When the agency finally performed that basic calculation, the regulators realized that a six month-old infant who received thimerosal-preserved vaccines following the recommended CDC vaccine schedule would have received a jaw dropping 187.5 micrograms of mercury.
Instead of immediately ordering the removal of thimerosal, FDA officials circled the wagons treating the public health emergency as a public relations problem. Peter Patriarca, then director of the FDA Division of Viral Products, warned his fellow bureaucrats that hasty removal of thimerosal from vaccines would:
” … raise questions about FDA being ‘asleep at the switch’ for decades by allowing a potentially hazardous compound to remain in many childhood vaccines, and not forcing manufacturers to exclude it from new products. It will also raise questions about various advisory bodies regarding aggressive recommendations for use. We must keep in mind that the dose of ethylmercury was not generated by “rocket science.” Conversion of the percentage thimerosal to actual micrograms of mercury involves ninth grade algebra. What took the FDA so long to do the calculations? Why didn’t CDC and the advisory bodies do these calculations when they rapidly expanded the childhood immunization schedule?”
The agency consulted with experts in the field of toxicology to better understand the potential impact of these exposure levels. One consultant was Barry Rumack, MD. Dr. Rumack, at the time, had a private consulting practice, Rumack Consulting, where he offered “toxicologic and pharmacologic evaluation of drugs, biological and potentially toxic or hazardous agents for government and industry.” After creating several scenarios based on infants’ ages and weights, Dr. Rumack modeled blood and body burden levels in 1999.

Missouri Bill Would Ban Mercury Vaccines; First Step to Nullify Federal Policy in Practice
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (Jan. 31, 2017) – A Missouri House bill would ban public health clinics from administering vaccines that contain mercury or any other metal put into the vaccine for preservation purposes, contradicting approved federal policy.
House Bill 331 (HB331) was introduced by Rep. Lynn Morris (R-Nixa) to mitigate concerns regarding vaccine safety. With the exception of health emergencies determined by the Department of Health & Senior Services with concurrence from the governor, the following provision would apply:
Beginning August 28, 2018, no vaccine containing mercury or other metal for preservation or other purpose shall be administrated to a child or adult in a public health clinic in Missouri.
HB331 begins the process of nullifying potential vaccine mandates, which generally have their basis in federal recommendations or guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Although these federal rules are not technically binding, they often influence policy-makers and individuals at the local and state levels to adopt coercive mandates regarding mercury-laced vaccines and other toxic substances.
By taking the rule-making power back into their own hands, the state of Missouri can disconnect from federal control and restore its sovereignty on this key issue.
NECESSITY
Measures such as HB331 push back against federal narratives regarding immunizations. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) downplays concerns regarding the use of thimerosal, a preservative containing mercury. They even admit on their own website that mercury is still being used to preserve certain vaccines:
Thimerosal, which is approximately 50% mercury by weight, has been one of the most widely used preservatives in vaccines… While the use of mercury-containing preservatives has declined in recent years with the development of new products formulated with alternative or no preservatives, thimerosal has been used in some immune globulin preparations, anti-venins, skin test antigens, and ophthalmic and nasal products, in addition to certain vaccines.
As the FDA downplays the concerns related to thimerosal and mercury in vaccines, whistle-blowers are singing a different tune. The National Vaccine Information Center, a non-profit watchdog organization, reports that the threat is still alarming – especially pertaining to infants:
Most infants are still routinely given Thimerosal-containing influenza vaccine even though there are Thimerosal-free and vaccines with trace amounts of Thimerosal. Infants receiving a Thimerosal-containing influenza vaccine are dosed at 6 months with 12.5 mcg of ethyl mercury and at 7 months with an additional 12.5 mcg. Adult Thimerosal-containing vaccines contain roughly 25mcg.
The CDC aids the FDA in promulgating their point of view. Although the CDC attempts to maintain a veneer of independence and credibility, there are facts showing that narrative to be false. The CDC Foundation boasts that it helps the CDC “do more, faster.” It is able to do this because the CDC Foundation receives annual funding from a host of corporations including Pharmaceutical giants Merck, Roche, and Emergent BioSolutions Inc.

Study – A two-phase study evaluating the relationship between Thimerosal-containing vaccine administration and the risk for an autism spectrum disorder diagnosis in the United States
Results
In phase I, it was observed that there was a significantly increased risk ratio for the incidence of ASD reported following the Thimerosal-containing DTaP vaccine in comparison to the Thimerosal-free DTaP vaccine. In phase II, it was observed that cases diagnosed with an ASD were significantly more likely than controls to receive increased organic-Hg from Thimerosal-containing hepatitis B vaccine administered within the first, second, and sixth month of life.
Conclusions
Routine childhood vaccination is an important public health tool to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with infectious diseases, but the present study provides new epidemiological evidence supporting an association between increasing organic-Hg exposure from Thimerosal-containing childhood vaccines and the subsequent risk of an ASD diagnosis.

Study – What is regressive autism and why does it occur? Is it the consequence of multi-systemic dysfunction affecting the elimination of heavy metals and the ability to regulate neural temperature?
Abstract
There is a compelling argument that the occurrence of regressive autism is attributable to genetic and chromosomal abnormalities, arising from the overuse of vaccines, which subsequently affects the stability and function of the autonomic nervous system and physiological systems. That sense perception is linked to the autonomic nervous system and the function of the physiological systems enables us to examine the significance of autistic symptoms from a systemic perspective. Failure of the excretory system influences elimination of heavy metals and facilitates their accumulation and subsequent manifestation as neurotoxins: the long-term consequences of which would lead to neurodegeneration, cognitive and developmental problems. It may also influence regulation of neural hyperthermia. This article explores the issues and concludes that sensory dysfunction and systemic failure, manifested as autism, is the inevitable consequence arising from subtle DNA alteration and consequently from the overuse of vaccines.

Supreme Court of the United States 2011 – Vaccines are unsafe

US Vax Court Sees 400% Spike in Vaccine Injuries, Flu Shot Wins Top Honors for Biggest Payout
Vaccine injury cases are on the rise people, so if you’ve got your head in the sand and you haven’t been paying attention, it’s time to wake up.
Here’s a little background for those of you just getting started.
Ronnie Reagan… almost 30 years ago to the day, the 40th president of the United States signed away the rights of Americans to sue vaccine makers, replacing them with a law that forces families who have suffered vaccine injury or death to sue the U.S. government instead of a pharmaceutical company.
As a result, special masters from the United States Special Claims Court, also known for our purposes as the vaccine court, are given full authority as judge with no jury to decide the fate of Americans who have had the unfortunate ‘luck’ to be stricken by a vaccine injury — which can range from chronic, mild symptoms to death.
Once a year, this non-traditional court provides the public with a glimpse into its inner workings, by issuing an annual report on its website — a ritual that happens every January.  The report is sent to the President of Congress, otherwise known as the Vice President of the United States, where it is intended to serve as a bell weather monitoring reactions the American public may be having to vaccinations that are increasingly becoming forced by government mandates around the country.
Great, right?  Accountability in action?
Wrong.
The report, which is consistently ignored by mainstream media/politicians/health officials and the CDC, lies dormant on the reports page of the U.S. Special Claims Court website.
No headlines, no press release, no analysis, no alert the media, no nothing.
No surprise, given that most people in America don’t even know that vaccines were ruled to be unavoidably unsafe by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2011.  Also no surprise, that mainstream, co-opted, globalist elite media constantly ignore this report, along with sane arguments made by health freedom advocates about the dangers and risks of vaccine injury (‘look! a unicorn!’), instead using terms like ‘the science is in,’ and vaccine risk has been ‘debunked,’ to deter rational discussion pertaining to evidence that is hiding in plain sight.

REAGAN SIGNS BILL ON DRUG EXPORTS AND PAYMENT FOR VACCINE INJURIES
WASHINGTON, Nov. 14— President Reagan today signed a comprehensive health bill designed to promote exports of prescription drugs and to compensate children injured by vaccines.
Mr. Reagan said he had approved the bill ”with mixed feelings” because he had ”serious reservations” about the vaccine compensation program.
But he warmly endorsed provisions of the bill that would, for the first time, allow pharmaceutical companies to export drugs to other countries that have approved their use, without waiting for the United States to approve the drugs’ sale here. Mr. Reagan said this part of the new law ”will increase the competitiveness of the American pharmaceutical industry abroad, create jobs, foster biotechnology and aid other nations.” Separation-of-Powers Issue
However, he said there were ”substantial deficiencies” in the vaccine plan, under which injured people could obtain payments from the Government without proving fault or wrongdoing by the vaccine manufacturer or anyone else.
The program would be ”administered not by the executive branch, but by the Federal judiciary,” Mr. Reagan said, calling it an ”unprecedented arrangement” that was inconsistent with the constitutional requirement for separation of powers among the branches of the Federal Government.
Mr. Reagan’s action came after heavy lobbying in favor of the bill by a broad-based coalition including drug companies, physicians and groups representing children and the elderly. Agency Had Urged Veto

The United States Court of Federal Claims and the United States Court of Federal Claims Bar Association hosted their first-ever national webcast on June 19, 2013. The subject was “Meet the Office of Special Masters,” featuring introductions of the court’s two newest special masters as well as the court’s special masters answering questions from the bar.

Moreover, the Committee emphasized in its 1987 Report when it authorized funding that it had not decided, as a matter  of  law,  which,  if  any,  vaccines  were  unavoidably unsafe: “This question is left to the courts to determine in accordance with applicable law.” Id.

The legislative history suggests that all the stakeholders  –  Congress,  parents,  manufacturers and physicians – understood that victims preserved the  right  to  take  design  defect  claims  to  court. Respondent and its amici appear to be trying to achieve through the judiciary what they failed to obtain through Congress.
