Canada’s Health World, The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

Good bad uglyBy David Burd

Neil Z. Miller’s 3/25/13  AofA Post relating his presentations on dangers of infant vaccines being rebuffed, hindered, or censored by Canadian officials prompt me to specifically convey the bizarre but true World of Flu in Canada compared to the U.S,, though I am confident that much pertains to most every vaccine.

My years of study of Canada versus the U.S. compares “apples to apples” as both health systems have the exact same boilerplate for weekly influenza (flu) reports.  In the U.S. it is the CDC “Fluview” - whereas in Canada their version is the PHAC (Public Health Agency of Canada) “Fluwatch.”  Any layperson or health professional can easily access the Weekly Reports by just googling those websites.

Back in June 2, 2010 AofA ran my Post citing the vast disparity of pediatric “flu-associated” deaths between Canada and the U.S.  I cited U.S. pediatric mortality rate was four times that of Canada, and I made the case terribly toxic drugs such as Ribavirin have been given for years in the U.S. hospitals whereas Canada’s protocols distinctly avoid this nucleoside analogue (basically the same as cancer chemotherapy) that immediately causes hemolytic anemia (quickly kills red blood cells).

At any rate - Neil Z. Miller is a hero and I’ve always wanted to communicate with him.  So in that spirit I hope he reads this Post, and I commend him for all he has done, and does.

First, The Good about Canada: The June 1, 2012 issue of Pediatrics (Epub was 5/14/2012) by five Canadian health professionals cites over six years ending 2009 but an average of 5% of Canadian Ontario babies (up to age 2) had parents that took them to get annual flu vaccinations.  The Province of Ontario includes Toronto and their capital Ottawa, and is 40% -of Canada’s population.  Thus, I contend Ontario is an accurate barometer of all of Canada.   The following is the Pediatrics Paper reference::

Pediatrics. 2012 Jun;129(6):e1421-30. doi: 10.1542/peds.2011-2441. Epub 2012 May 14.
Low rates of influenza immunization in young children under Ontario's universal influenza immunization program.

Over the years I have previously documented (per the PHAC Fluwatch) the same six years the average pediatric Canadian “flu-associated” deaths per year was but one.  Yes, only one (1), although there is the caveat that on average three (3) other pediatric Canadian deaths per year were among those having very serious prior co-morbidities in combination with flu symptoms.

Next, the Good versus the Bad: With the present 2012-2013 Flu Season essentially over in North America, the “flu-associated” pediatric deaths for reported by Canada’s Fluwatch is zero, that’s right - zero - even zero among Canadian kids having serious prior co-morbidities.

Meanwhile here in the U.S. with parents being exhorted by the vast Flu Shot Advertising Empire since last September, the U.S. CDC reports via its Fluview there are 105 pediatric deaths and 51% of U.S. kids getting flu shots for 2012-2013, with even two shots at 6 months and 7 months, and most having 25 micrograms of mercury preservative out of 10-dose vials.  This is versus 5% kids in Canada getting flu shots, and since  it’s clear Canadian parents are not as panicked or gullible as American parents (indoctrinated by CDC’s revolting and ceaseless fear mongering) it’s  likely the few Canadian tots actually given shots got the single dose from individual vials having but residual mercury (though no data is available on this detail).

The Ugly: The American Media resolutely refuses to report the complete success of Canada’s parents refusing to have their kids getting a useless and truly toxic flu shot, yet having on average but one yearly “flu-associated” death,.

More Good Repeated: Canadian parents have wised up to the propaganda.

More Ugly: Canadian officials, ignoring five of their top health scientists’ Pediatrics published paper, still parrot their U.S. counterparts and promote the idiocy of flu shots.

Even more Ugly: U.S. CDC officials and U.S. Media and Canadian Media, and Canada’s Officialdom, as experienced by Neil Z. Miller, persist in their promoting deadly and disabling flu shots and other unnecessary vaccines.  As of mid-March, the CDC cites 105 dead American kids per their Fluview Website.  In Canada for this flu season it’s zero.  It’s are all there in black and white on both countries’ Official Websites.

Hypocritically, in spite of the known toxicity of Thimerosal, the American Academy Of Pediatrics reversed its position on Thimerosal in December of 2012 and endorsed the World Health Organization's position (STATEMENT OF ENDORSEMENT Recommendation of WHO Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE) on Immunization, http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/early/2012/12/12/peds.2012-2262.citation) and now claims that Thimerosal-preserved vaccines are safe (Ban on Thimerosal in Draft Treaty on Mercury: Why the AAP's Position in 2012 Is So Important, (http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/early/2012/12/12/peds.2012-1823.citation).

For any agency to know that the level of Thimerosal is any vaccine dose is safe, that agency would have to have a valid value for the “no observed adverse effect level” (NOAEL) for injected Thimerosal in developing humans.

To date, though there is no published recognized value for the NOAEL for Thimerosal injected into developing humans, the published estimate for the upper limit on the NOAEL for Thimerosal injected into developing humans, derived from the “least observed adverse effect level” (LOAEL) is less than 0.0086 micrograms (mcg) of Thimerosal per kilogram (kg) of subject weight per day (http://dr-king.com/docs/090812_fnldrft_TheTruthAboutTheToxicityOfThimerosalr5b.pdf, page 4) or, in terms of the dose of organic mercury, less than 0.0042 mcg of mercury (Hg) /kg/da.

Based on that estimate, the NOAEL for organic mercury injected into developing humans was subsequently estimated as about 0.002 mcg of Hg/kg/da (http://mercury-freedrugs.org/docs/20120928_CoMeD_WHO_GACVS_UNEPINC5Submission_ReviewOfGACVSJune2012ReportOnSafety_ThimerosalInVaccines_rev1b.pdf, page 10).

Because the mercury from Thimerosal ("thiomersal") bioaccumulates in tissues like the brain, even if the original estimated NOAEL were safe and the dose of organic mercury was only 12.5 mcg, the developing human would have to weigh more than 6 250 kg [more than 13 779 lbs].

Since all developing humans weigh significantly than the preceding amount, it is obvious that Thimerosal-preserved vaccines are NOT safe to give to developing humans and especially not to newborns typically weighing less than 4 kg. [less than 8 pounds, 13 ounces].

Hi David,
As someone who grew up in Canada, I just wanted to mention that we need to adjust these numbers for the population ratio. The US has about 9.5 times as many people as Canada (you had done the adjustment in your 2010 article). However, even allowing for that, the difference is significant. The only prevalence numbers I have seen from Canada have been regional and indicate a slightly lower prevalence than in the US.

Thank you for this article--very informative. I don't doubt Canadian ASD rates are similar to American ones. At my son's school, if you do not count children like him bussed in from other ares to the special ASD class, there is still a rate of about 1 in 50, although most of these kids are mildy affected compared to the children in the special ASD class and are mainstreamed with little support (this isn't a comment on how much support they need, but how much they get). I think times are changing in Canada in regard to vaccines. I rarely meet anyone who has received a flu vaccine recently, and continue to meet people all the time who fully believe that my son's regression into autism was directly linked to vaccines. In fact, people often have their own stories to share about adverse vaccine reactions. Even two MDs we have seen believed that my son's ASD is vaccine related. I have found that a great many people want to talk about vaccines--it is up to people like us to be able to give them some facts and help them to understand the huge machinery that wants us all to believe that vaccines are perfectly safe, essential, and beyond questioning.


I think a big factor, at least here in western Canada, is that infants are usually seen by the family doctor whilst pediatricians are for more specialized health issues. Vaccinations are given at Health Clinics by nurses who also do most of the well check items such as weight and measurements. This system in a way helps parents become more empowered if not more self-reliant.

My first son (diagnosed with autism) was born in the States. I was pressured by the ob/gyn to get a pediatrician before my son was even born. This seemed really odd to me then and looking back it seems designed to get the mother/parent really reliant on the ped for everything. And I was particularly vulnerable because I didn’t have any family, save my husband, to support me. So of course I hung on to every word that came out of her mouth and didn’t question the Hep B vax. :(

In the years we have been back in Canada, I don’t recall ever having a doctor inquire about my children’s vaccination status. Not in any office or ER. If we’ve had discussions it is because I have brought it up. The Health Clinic phones (or through the school sends paper work) when vaccines are due and they are easily declined. (don’t even get a debate! dang! :) )

Clearly the pharma companies have a stranglehold on the AAP which in turn has a stranglehold on the pediatricians who have control over your child’s health. Boycott the pediatricians and hopefully they will take back their profession from the corruption from above. The movement to stop or at least label GMO’s encourages people to vote with their money. This is applicable to healthcare. Take back ownership of your health, otherwise claims of being the freest nation on earth is just an illusion.

David, thanks for your kind comments and for sharing this information about pediatric flu vaccines. In 1999, before flu vaccines were recommended and administered to small boys and girls, just 25 children in the United States under 5 years of age died from influenza. In 2000, 2001 and 2002, there were just 19, 13 and 12 influenza deaths, respectively, in this age group. However, in the latter half of 2002 the CDC began advocating that all young children receive influenza vaccines. Thus, doctors started vaccinating as many young children as possible against the flu. The following year, in 2003, influenza deaths in children under 5 years of age skyrocketed to 90 cases -- a sevenfold increase over previous years! [These are the official "Cause of Death" case numbers published by the CDC and can easily be confirmed by reading National Vital Statistics Reports, Volumes 49-54, Tables 10.]

That only 5% of Canadians get flu shots for their infants doesn't surprise me. Even though WHO states we are a hep b at birth recommended country, only a couple of provinces actually recommend this shot to infants. I'm sure parents would balk at that big time! Thank you so much, David for collecting and presenting this info- I think it is very instructive. Something you could look into as well, is the fact that in Canada we seem to have no formal surveillance system for autism incidence and use the American CDC stats! I even emailed the Canadian autism speaks foundation once about this and basically got no answer as to why this is the case. I suspect our autism rate is lower than US but yet still around the 1 in 100 - 150 area. A family friend's child has recently been diagnosed and he would be on the milder end of the spectrum. It is shameful that we don't really know what the Canadian stats are!

Thank you David.

Here is what we know about human brain tissue in a lab dish after exposure to thimerosal:

"After 6 h [hours] of incubation, the thimerosal toxicity was observed... at a 1-microM [micro molar] level with the more sensitive GENios Plus Multi-Detection Microplate Reader with Enhanced Fluorescence."
See http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12773768

Here is what we know about infant monkeys after exposure to thimerosal via intra muscular injection:

Inorganic mercury levels in infant monkey brain tissue, from the vaccine preservative Thimerosal, are shown to be at levels of parts per billion for over four months.

See figure 7 at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1280342/?tool=pu-bmed

But no one knows what happens in humans when inorganic mercury at a concentration, in the developing human brain, of one part per billion (1/200th of a micro molar) for over 4 months (over 2900 hours).

So there is no safe mercury exposure numeric criterion established for the developing brain with regard to nano-molar exposure levels and long time periods.

The statements by FDA that thimerosal in flu shots is safe for children and pregnant women is scientifically unfounded. This is a disgrace to our country and our citizens. It is time to complete the ban on mercury vaccines that was agreed upon in 1999.
“…the Public Health Service, the American Academy of Pediatrics and vaccine manufacturers agree that thimerosal-containing vaccines should be removed as soon as possible.”
