Interesting Information: Vaccines: The Forgotten History Of Vaccines

Vaccines:  July 6, 2015

THE FORGOTTEN HISTORY OF VACCINES

When anyone questions the safety and efficacy of vaccines, someone ALWAYS says “the polio vaccine saved lives.”

But…it didn’t.

And there is a very swarmy and nasty history surrounding the polio vaccine.

I can forgive folks for buying into the smallpox vaccine.  Though that’s a swarmy history as well as it dates to the 1700s and involves many types of vaccines, many of which were killers.  But the polio vaccine comes in 1954, and the developers KNEW THERE WERE PROBLEMS.  They went ahead anyway.

Bottom line, I’m realizing, is that no one understands why a killer disease comes into being and then wanes.  And no one knows how our immune systems work.  We do know that each individual’s immune system is VERY DIFFERENT from all others–so a one-size-fits-all vaccines is a huge problem for way too many people–even if you’re assuming vaccines are safe and work–which is also not true.

This is a longer article with tons of good information from a credentialed, reputable source.  At least scroll down to the polio section if you do nothing else.

Interesting Information/Vaccines: The Doctor Who Beat The British General Medical Council By Proving That Vaccines Aren’t Necessary To Achieve Health

Interesting Information/vaccines:  June 15, 2015

Dr. Jayne Donegan Exonerated

Dr. Jayne Donegan was very much pro-vaccine–until her own child was harmed.

Dr. Donegan, like Neil Miller, Dr. Suzanne Humphries, and Roman Bystrianyk, started asking questions and researching the history of vaccines.

What they all found did not support claims about the efficacy of vaccines against disease–among many other vaccine problems.

But, here’s another story of a doctor looking for real science and questioning the vaccine industry being hauled up before regulatory bodies.  Dr. Donegan toughed it out.  She got a good lawyer.  She did a ton of research herself, and, in the end, she was totally cleared of all charges.

Here’s a quote:

What happened when a UK doctor appeared as an expert witness to help two mothers prove in court that their children didn’t need to be vaccinated?

A 3 year court case against the British General Medical Council that ended with the doctor accused having all allegations dropped.

Dr. Jayne Donegan, a UK GP, has lived a most fascinating story. It began with her originally being a very strong advocate for vaccinations, but fast forward quite a few years later, and she now not only speaks out against the dangers of vaccinations, but ended up being taken to the General Medical Council with some pretty serious claims by them regarding her professionalism.

After a few stressful years in court against them, Dr. Donegan won her case. But chances are, this is the first you’re hearing of it.

And here’s her story:

Interesting Information/Vaccines: NPR: Whooping Cough Vaccine’s Protection Fades Quickly

Interesting Information/Vaccines:  May 2015

Whooping Cough/Pertussis Vaccine’s Protection Fades Quickly

I came home to the news that there has been an “outbreak” of whooping cough–in a population of vaccinated children.

Now the “story” is that the vaccinated will have milder cases.  But, where’s the proof of that?

Here’s an NPR story that appeared before I left for Charleston to see my family–and it amply illustrates the ignorance that is rampant in the whole vaccine issue:

***

This NPR story admits the whooping cough/Pertussis vaccine is not working.  (The Tdap vaccine is meant to cover Tetnus, diptheria, and pertussis.)

And, the NPR story covers the fact that giving more boosters won’t do the trick either.  Or, that the older Dtap vaccine contained ethyl mercury, now called thimersol.

BUT, NPR, like most mainstream press, does not understand the complexities of this issue.

What this writer has done is run to the usual suspects:  Dr. Art Reingold (a professor of public health) just repeats the herd immunity myth.  The ignorance factor among the public health people is beyond astounding.

Why keep going to them for answers?  It’s easy, that’s why.

Why not go to someone in the actual field.  Like an IMMUNOLOGIST, for instance.

Tetyana Obukhanych explains quite clearly what’s wrong with this vaccine in VACCINE ILLUSIONS (easy read, easy download).

The older whooping cough vaccine used BOTH strains of pertussis.  But it had side effects that made it…not workable.  The current vaccine only has ONE strain, and now it’s vaccine resistant.  Hello out there.  You do not know what you are doing.   Here’s another unintended consequence that’s seriously bad.  You’re creating a super disease now.

The information on tetanus does not include the information that there is a noninvasive way to create a natural immunity to tetanus.  Again, read VACCINE ILLUSIONS to understand this issue.

Finally, the article does not share that this vaccine contains aluminum and formaldehyde–among other toxins.

 “Why Some Parents Fear Vaccines” Video

Statistics:

54% of children are chronically ill or disabled

9 million have skin allergies

8 million have respiratory allergies

7 million have asthma

5 million have learning disabilities

1 in 400 children have diabetes

1 in 50 have autism

Studies link these conditions to vaccines.  Yes, they do.

Vaccine makers have no liability.

If your child is harmed by a vaccine, you will be totally on your own.

Please watch this 11 minute video on why some parents fear vaccines and understand why you must inform yourselves before you choose to vaccinate:

Interesting Information/Vaccines: British Court Throws Out Conviction of Autism/Vaccine MD: Andrew Wakefield’s Co-Author Completely Exonerated

leave a comment »

Interesting Information:  May 2015

The Dr. Andrew Wakefield Vaccine Saga

Dr. Andrew Wakefield was an early casualty in the vaccine wars.

He and his team published a research article that suggested that there MAY BE a connection between the MMR vaccine and autism.  The result:  all hell broke loose for Wakefield and his team.  The paper was retracted–for unscientific and unfair political reasons; many on the team bailed out so their careers would not be ruined; and Wakefield and Walker-Smith were hauled before a UK regulatory board and thoroughly and unfairly demonized, smeared, and ruined.

It’s an old story when dollars are at stake and industry is powerful.

Walker-Smith’s insurance paid for his defense; Wakefield’s did not.

Their premise has since been confirmed–but Wakefield has not been reinstated.  It is pretty hard to appeal when you’ve fled the country and have no money.

AND, Wakefield’s name is still invoked as a quack, a charleton, and so forth by those who did not get to the end of the story.  Wakefield’s name has been invoked here in Maine by a local doctor in a local paper and attempts to set the record straight have been met with a refusal to print.  So, the doctor can lie/or miss the actual history, and it does not matter.  That’s how myth stays in place.

Here’s a quote:

In a stunning reversal, world renowned pediatric gastroenterologist Prof. John Walker-Smith won his appeal against the United Kingdom’s General Medical Council regulatory board that had ruled against both him and Andrew Wakefield for their roles in the 1998 Lancet MMR paper, which raised questions about a link to autism. The complete victory means that Walker-Smith has been returned to the status of a fully licensed physician in the UK, although he had already retired in 2001 — six years before the GMC trial even began.

Justice John Mitting ruled on the appeal by Walker-Smith, saying that the GMC “panel’s determination cannot stand. I therefore quash it.” He said that its conclusions were based on “inadequate and superficial reasoning and, in a number of instances, a wrong conclusion.” The verdict restores Walker-Smith’s name to the medical register and his reputation to the medical community. This conclusion is not surprising, as the GMC trial had no actual complainants, no harm came to the children who were studied, and parents supported Walker-Smith and Wakefield through the trial, reporting that their children had medically benefited from the treatment they received at the Royal Free Hospital.

Sharyl Attkinsson

 

Sharyl Attkisson is a five-time Emmy Award winning investigative journalist whose television career spans more than three decades. She was the reporter who, in 2009, blew the lid off the swine flu media hype, showing the hysteria was completely unfounded and manufactured.

Why Conventional Media So Rarely Tells You the Truth About Health

One industry that wields a great deal of power within the media today is the pharmaceutical industry. It’s rare to sit through an evening of television without viewing several drug ads. They also advertise heavily in print and online media. The advertising dollars they spend not only generates sales, it also gives them the power to influence what’s being reported in the news. Here’s just one example:

“There’s a story in my book about former executive producer of mine who got a phone call from the sales division, which was very inappropriate. He said the sales person from CBS was kind of screaming at him because we’d been doing a lot of stories looking at side effects and problems with the very popular and billion-dollar-selling cholesterol-lowering drugs, statins.

The advertisers didn’t like that. Therefore, someone from the CBS corporate apparently didn’t like that, and called down and said something like, ‘If you keep doing these stories, it’s going to be really, really bad for CBS…’

I think that happens more often than we know explicitly. But this time, it was followed by what I see as all of the media backing down on pharmaceutical-related stories. We were doing very aggressive coverage of problems within the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) – not just me, but all the networks and a lot of print publications – about vaccines side effects, and about other medical issues. That all has virtually stopped. You can almost point to a time period when it seems someone made a phone call and said, ‘That’s it fellas. There are advertisers.’

And you won’t see these stories now even when there’s a multi-billion-dollar criminal settlement against drug companies for mismarketing drugs that are commonly used. That’s a huge story that should be leading the news in my opinion. But most people probably never heard of it because those are things that offend the sensibilities of advertisers, who now control to some degree the editorial content of networks, publications, and print publications that are advertising.

And, as you know, they have several lobbyists for every member of Congress on Capitol Hill so they can make sure certain hearings don’t happen. As recently as last year, they were able to stop a planned vaccine-related hearing. The control is almost total in my view. That’s just one example of a corporate influence.”

The New Gardasil:  Is it Right For Your Daughter?

Kelly Brogan, MD

From the article:  

Dr. Kelly Brogan is boarded in Psychiatry/Psychosomatic Medicine/Reproductive Psychiatry and Integrative Holistic Medicine, and practices Functional Medicine, a root-cause approach to illness as a manifestation of multiple-interrelated systems. After studying Cognitive Neuroscience at M.I.T., and receiving her M.D. from Cornell University, she completed her residency and fellowship at Bellevue/NYU. She is one of the nation’s only physicians with perinatal psychiatric training who takes a holistic evidence-based approach in the care of patients with a focus on environmental medicine and nutrition. She is also a mom of two, and an active supporter of women’s birth experience. She is the Medical Director for Fearless Parent, and an advisory board member for GreenMedInfo.com. Visit her website.

Here’s a quote about fear-based marketing of Gardasil:

In the marketing and licensure of the HPV vaccine, changes to cervical cells have been equated with death. This is called using a “surrogate marker” and in vaccine research, this is considered acceptable because we can’t otherwise prove a non-event is attributable to an intervention. There are leaps in logic and in science inherent in this practice, that render conclusions nothing more than false marketing.

In fact, none of the HPV vaccines have ever been proven to prevent a single case of cervical cancer.

And:

The cervical cancer diagnosis rate in the United States is 7.9/100,000. Given that only 5% of HPV infections progress to neoplasia (CIN) and that 91% of early stage cases resolve spontaneously within 36 months, with 70% of CIN 1 and 54% of CIN 2 cases doing the same within 12 months, using these pathologies as surrogate markers for cancer incidence represents a scientific shortcoming.

Built on this house of cards, and defying pre-existing FDA criteria for fast-tracked approval, Gardasil was brought to market in 6 months and is now one of our great human experiments. Several countries including Japan, France, and India have banned and/or filed criminal lawsuits about Gardasil, but, as Americans, not only are the “one less” commercials still running, but the latest and greatest version of Gardasil is now available.
