Oct 17, 2014, RealFarmacy.com: Johns Hopkins Scientist Reveals Shocking Report on Flu Vaccines
On what would have been his 100th birthday, Google honored Jonas Salk, who discovered the polio vaccine, with a "Doodle," the search engine's daily, artful logo iteration....
One of the most common complaints of the vocal anti-vaccine movement is a supposed link between vaccines - especially the vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella or MMR - and autism. But the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has concluded "there is not a causal relationship between certain vaccine types and autism."
Nonetheless anti-vaxxers continue to perpetuate the autism-link myth
Here's some added info on Jonas Salk and his vaccine:
"American scientist Jonas Salk came forward with a new idea to eliminate all three strains of polio. He would grow the live virus in a lab and then kill the virus and inject the dead virus into children. Being dead, they could not produce, but would create antibodies against the virus. Thus the immune system would be armed against polio.
"Bernice Eddy was a bacteriologist at the NIH (National Institute of Health) and was told to safety-test the new vaccine. What she found was that the virus in the vaccine was not dead but still alive and able to breed. When she tried it on her monkeys, they were paralyzed. She sent pictures and warned the NIH.
"Several prominent physicians stepped into the fray to state the vaccine was safe. One of these doctors was Dr. Alton Ochsner who was Dr. Mary Sherman's boss. To demonstrate his faith in the vaccine, Dr. Ochsner inoculated his own grandchildren with it. The mass inoculation proceeded on schedule and within days children fell sick from polio, some crippled, and some died. Ochsner's grandson died of polio and his granddaughter was crippled with it. The director of the NIH resigned, the Secretary of Health resigned, it was a huge failure by public health."
An important and definitive "mainstream" government study done nearly a decade ago got little attention because the science came down on the wrong side. It found that after decades and billions of dollars spent promoting flu shots for the elderly, the mass vaccination program did not result in saving lives. In fact, the death rate among the elderly increased substantially.
The authors of the study admitted a bias going into the study. Here was the history as described to me: Public health experts long assumed flu shots were effective in the elderly. But, paradoxically, all the studies done failed to demonstrate a benefit. Instead of considering that they, the experts, could be wrong-instead of believing the scientific data-the public health experts assumed the studies were wrong. After all, flu shots have to work, right?
...when they finished, no matter how they crunched the numbers, the data kept telling the same story: flu shots were of no benefit to the elderly. Quite the opposite. The death rate had increased markedly since widespread flu vaccination among older Americans. The scientists finally had to acknowledge that decades of public health thought had been mistaken.
Description from Sharyl Attkisson's blog....Investigative Journalist who tries to give you information others don't want you to have. What you do with it is your own business. Do your own research. Seek advice from those you trust. Make up your own mind.
So the flu shot doesn't work in the elderly and it's linked to a higher mortality rate. And officials don't care. (Seriously, who makes money when people don't get a vaccine?)
We should all be scared!
A Johns Hopkins scientist has issued a blistering report on influenza vaccines in the British Medical Journal (BMJ). Peter Doshi, Ph.D., charges that although the vaccines are being pushed on the public in unprecedented numbers, they are less effective and cause more side effects than alleged by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Further, says Doshi, the studies that underlie the CDC's policy of encouraging most people to get a yearly flu shot are often low quality studies that do not substantiate the official claims.
Something is VERY WRONG HERE. Our health officials tell every senior to get a flu shot. WHY?
Sharyl Attkisson, top investigative reporter, is saying that top research that our health officials KNOW ABOUT shows the flu shot is ineffective and deadly in the elderly.
