This [whistleblower] news, and the unfolding of it have penetrated me to the core of my womanhood. It has driven me to question the judgment behind bringing children into a society that seeks to destroy itself. But it has also lionized me to band together with like-minded parents to change the tide. It is happening, and the establishment feels it. There is a revolution afoot and it may just be darkest before the dawn. Kelly Brogan, MD
Doctors need to listen to those in their profession who question vaccine safety claims. There are dissenters. Not every physician buys into the illogical principle of pediatric medicine that says that an untested, ever-expanding vaccine schedule is safe for every child in America. Whenever I run across a doctor willing to go public with an anti-establishment view of vaccines, I can't wait to write about it.
The very title went to the heart of the scandal unfolding over the charge of manipulation of the CDC's MMR study results.
Brogan began her piece with one word: Fraud.
What followed was a sentence that was electric for me since I have spent the last ten years moderating how the media (doesn't) cover autism. Brogan wrote: As citizens of this capitalist nation, we cannot rely on corporate-sponsored news media for the truth.
Corporate-sponsored news. That's what we're getting. The media in America writes at the behest of powerful corporations. These people pay for the networks and newspapers through their ad dollars. Is it any wonder that members of the press have looked the other way with each jaw-dropping increase in the autism rate and every pharma-funded study showing no link between vaccines and autism? They've been the facilitators for officials determined to make the autism epidemic a normal and acceptable part of childhood along with covering up all evidence of vaccine damage.
Alison MacNeil (the Thinking Moms' Revolution) recently referred to someone at CNN telling us vaccines don't cause autism as a stenographer. What else do you call a news person who doesn't bother to investigate a story, but rather reports what they've been told (and what all the other networks are saying)?
Since we're all thinking/literate adults here, I'll just tell you her commentary on Brian Hooker and William Thompson (and Poul Thorsen, Julie Gerberding) does not mince words. She is especially critical of the MMR vaccine.
A veritable body-bomb, the MMR contains recombinant human albumin, fetal bovine serum, and chick embryo fibroblasts, and the potential for interspecies activation of unknown retroviruses, molecular mimicry, and reactivation of the virulence of the infectious virus itself – a completely unstudied and medically unacknowledged risk.
The damage that results from this vaccine is called, Measles-Induced Neuroautistic Encephalopathy--a term coined by Dr. Brogan. It's brain injury--not an alternate way of seeing the world or whatever rosy picture is painted for us each April for "Autism Awareness Month."
Brogan wrote that parents are taking back the truth.
She had a message for mothers to listen to their eternal protective impulses: If we stand together, our feminine wisdom will cast a shadow so dark that Pharma will run scared. Dig deep for that fearlessness, and let emerging truths like Thompson’s support your journey back to self.
After reading this article I felt energized. I contacted Dr. Brogan and she was willing to answer questions for me that I can now share with all of you. Her answers were a strong critique of the medical community and what they're doing to the current generation. In her words, Our children are more endangered than ever in human history.
Dr. Brogan, you are very outspoken in your criticism of vaccines. When did you first break ranks with the mainstream medical community? Why led you to do this?
I am outspoken about how we have been misled, by pharmaceutical companies, government, and corporations, about our body's innate ability to heal and protect itself, and about the modern barriers to health. I began to delve into the available literature when I, myself, was pregnant, during my fellowship, and first year of private practice, specialized in the treatment of pregnant and postpartum women. At the time, I subscribed to an "integrative model" of medicine, and prescribed psychotropics to women who were pregnant after an extensive informed consent process involving family members and several hours of dialogue about the data-evidenced risks. It was when my patients began to come in having been given the flu shot by a tech at CVS, with no consent process, no education, and no acknowledgement of the total dearth of safety data, that I became suspicious of a powerful agenda targeting the very population I consider most vulnerable. It has been 6 years since, and not a day has gone by that I have not been dedicated to unearthing the science that supports the dangers of a one-size-fits-all pharmaceutical product that, in no way acknowledges all that we have learned about biochemical individuality and immunity in the post-genomic era.
Why do you think most doctors are not really concerned over the declining health of our children? A handful of measles cases is a crisis, but the medical community is not sounding an alarm over epidemic increases in autism, diabetes, seizure disorder, asthma and life-threatening allergies, along with a host of other autoimmune conditions.
We are like lobsters in a pot and the water is getting warmer in such a way that we can barely sense the change before we're dead. This is our new normal. In some ways, it's hard to blame doctors. They are doing what they were taught. We learn, in our training, through a pharmaceutical, one-pill-one-ill lens. We didn't learn about autoimmunity and the microbiome - defining features of modern illness. In fact, one paper suggests a 17 year lag in paradigm-shifting medical science translating to the doctor's office.
I often reflect on a term I learned in my neurology clerkship - anosagnosia. The term refers to "lack of insight into a deficit". I think it applies to the average clinician today. Many don't know that they are practicing an outdated and dangerous form of medicine that has resulted in 70% of our population taking 2 or more prescription medications, and has not cured a single person of chronic disease.
What did you mean by the sentence, "Autism is the emblem for modern human health."
We now understand the emergence of behavioral and neurological syndromes to be rooted in a complex interplay of bodily systems. There is no such thing as autism, or depression, or ALS. These are descriptive labels that attempt to pigeon-hole multimodal collapse into a pharmaceutical target. The labels belie a heterogeneous etiology - the fact that there are many contributing factors that act in concert to manifest symptoms. This is post-genomic medicine, wherein we understand that each person is the product of generations of interaction with the environment, for better and for worse. Each person, is not even a person, but a body that houses a microbial community we share biological functioning with. The resilience and vulnerability that each person brings to the evolutionary mismatch of interfacing with modern chemicals, processed and genetically modified foods, stress, and pharmaceuticals is an equation we have not yet elucidated. That is why pharmaceuticals and other toxicant exposures is a Russian Roulette intervention. We are devolving, in many ways, as a species, and our children are more endangered than ever in human history. We must take this seriously and act in a manner that prizes the precautionary principle.
In your opinion, how serious are the revelations made by CDC scientist, Dr. William Thompson? Will officials be able to make this news disappear like they did with the Hannah Poling story where a vaccine-injured child with autism was compensated by the federal government?
We have an opportunity, with the emergence of a whistleblower declaring deliberate manipulation of data, to peer behind the curtain and truly see, in real time, how little interest the CDC has in it’s own claims to protect the people and save lives. We see the collusion between media, the scientific community, and the government who appear to be more interested in erasing their tracks than the process of investigative inquiry. We have to move beyond the assumption that we have been forced to accept - that vaccines are safe and effective. We have to acknowledge the less often cited disclaimer - that vaccines are unavoidably unsafe - and stand up for the violence that is committed when a one-size-fits-all pharmaceutical is forced on every child. It is my sincere hope that what facts do penetrate the average household, plant a seed of curiosity about the nature of the vaccine program, and inspire parents to investigate for themselves. It is a shrinking cohort that finds solace in trusting Big Government and paternalistic physicians with their children's health. We are reading the science ourselves, we are talking to each other, we are seeking out our own advisors, birthing at home, shunning pediatricians, and schooling our kids the way that is best for them.
This news, and the unfolding of it have penetrated me to the core of my womanhood. It has driven me to question the judgment behind bringing children into a society that seeks to destroy itself. But it has also lionized me to band together with like-minded parents to change the tide. It is happening, and the establishment feels it. There is a revolution afoot and it may just be darkest before the dawn.
What changes do you think need to be made regarding the practice of medicine in America?
The Mayo clinic has recently begun to work with Dr. Mark Hyman in creation of a clinical program that will set a new tone for a healthcare that acknowledges the power of personalized medicine, and concepts like epigenetics, oxidative stress, organ reserve, mitochondrial functioning, and the microbiome. Functional Medicine cures. That said, we are overflowing our physiologic buckets with ubiquitous and potentially irreversible exposures that our government is subsidizing, protecting, and promoting. With glyphosate and GMOs alone, we may run our food supply and planetary biodiversity into the ground before our children can have children. We are transgenerationally impacting our sons and daughters with endocrine disrupting chemicals that persist for decades and we are bombing their bodies with antibiotics and steroids to clean up the mess that vaccination has created.
We need to learn to trust our physiology, calm our minds, and send our bodies the signals of safety that it was evolutionarily built to receive - clean food, quiet, sunlight, movement. You don't need American medicine for this prescription.
