ABC News Disposes of the Evidence Quickly in Tragic 2001 Chicken Pox Death Resurrected as Vaccination "Lesson"
In the small hours US time I posted a comment on ABC News’s Duffy Peterson story Home> Health Mom Whose Child Died After Catching Chicken Pox Advocates for Vaccines.. Tragically her daughter Abby, who was born without a spleen and was therefore immune compromised, died from chicken pox, and Duffy has become the latest weapon in the war of the vaccines (or perhaps against the reputation of Jenny McCarthy). I wrote:
It is always very troubling when one of set of parents is being manipulated against another set. But it is also intolerable if children are being loaded with a burden of unquantified risk on the basis that they are protecting other people, and very often they are not really - for instance, the nasal flu vaccine where the manufacturers insert warns that the recipient must not come into contact immune compromised persons for weeks after receiving the vaccine : in the UK this is set to be rolled out for all school children this autumn. The only consistency from people who actually don't care about anybody's child is that it is siphoning off huge amounts from the public purse to benefit big business (note Fluenz is identical with Flumist in the US).
Another blatant example is chicken pox vaccine where it has been known for a very long time that the harm in mass vaccination is much greater than the benefit (even before we get to the side effects)
What, of course, is required is a return to the ethic of ‘Primum non nocere’ (first do no harm) and the greatest care to be taken with all children.
It is worth noting that these fully justified comments were supported by (1) the manufacturer’s own insert for Fluenz/Flumist and (2) a report from the British government’s Health Protection Agency (in the UK the chicken pox vaccine is still not on the schedule). Despite this the comment was removed within minutes.
As a parting shot I quoted from a Pubmed listed article the disclosure of the article’s expert William Schaffner who had told ABC among other things:
There is no injury to children getting vaccinations simultaneously. A child’s immune system is more capable, powerful and flexible than you would think it is.
'Potential conflicts of interest. W. S. (William Schaffner) is a member of data safety monitoring boards for Merck and Sanofi-Pasteur and occasionally consults for Pfizer, GlasoSmithKline, and Dynavax.'
Naturally, it never appeared - it has long since ceased to be job of news media to warn you of such things.
Vaccines are the biggest racket the earth has ever seen.
