Paul Offits Defends Flu Vaccine After Miscarriage Study
Note: Dr. Paul Offit, vax injury apologist and champion of tamping down American medical rights, has been ushered in to defend the flu vaccine in pregnant women following the news that the vaccine may be causal in miscarriages. Paul Offit claims to want to protect and save babies. Offit, "Scarer-in-Chief" for Pharma, author of such gems as "Autism's False Prophets: Bad Science, Risky Medicine and the Quest for a Cure" (cue the spooky music) and "How the Anti-Vaccine Movement Threatens Us All" (gee no scare tactics there, move along) writes, The Pregnancy Vaccine Scare That Should Have Never Been Why that CDC study on flu shots during the first trimester should never have been published.
Dr. Offit is telling the CDC that they should never have published a study. Previous studies found no link. So let's discount one that does. That's science, how?
Last week, researchers at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned that an influenza vaccine given in the first trimester of pregnancy might have caused miscarriages. News outlets all over America picked up the story.
The CDC’s claim wasn’t trivial. About 50 percent of all pregnant women in the U.S. receive an annual influenza vaccine. Now, some expectant mothers were wondering whether they had done the right thing by getting their flu shots.
These women had no need to worry. For several reasons, this CDC study should have never been published. Why?
• The CDC’s observation was inconsistent. Researchers had studied two influenza-vaccine seasons: 2010-2011 and 2011-2012. The problem of first-trimester spontaneous abortions occurred during the first season but not the second.
From The Daily Beast:
Dr. Offit retains his position as the “World Leader in tobacco science” which of course is now used by the vaccine industry to Prove nearly anything.
Dr. Offit enjoys his own vaccine creation, which is used ... in ONLY one or two other countries ... in the entire world.
For many, it is much easier to use the term “biostitute” ... a person who will make any medical statement for money, rather than to bother with his name.

"Has Offit written Lewis Carroll...the Mad Hatter was born like that."

Has Offit written to Lewis Carroll's r.e. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland explaining his astonishing discovery and how wrong everyone has been seemingly the Hatter was just born like that....

Well, you know, Offit is always right! He says, "As an environmentalist, Kennedy should know that mercury is a natural part of the Earth’s crust. As a consequence, methylmercury (environmental mercury) is contained in water and anything made from water, like breast milk and infant formula. The human body eliminates ethylmercury from vaccines far more efficiently than it eliminates naturally occurring methylmercury."
So, I guess Offit would have no problem adding Uranium-235 to vaccines because, like, Uranium-235 is in the Earth's crust, too, right? "Uranium-235 has a half-life of 703.8 million years," per Wikipedia, but if Paul Offit, the expert, says it's safe, who are we to question his logic and public pronouncements. Ridiculous!!!

"It should never have been published." Censorship in all areas now as a researcher (Dr. Caspian) at Bath University is told he cannot do a study on transgender surgery regret even if estimates of such regret run as high as 20%. It is deemed not politically correct.

"Researchers had studied two influenza-vaccine seasons: 2010-2011 and 2011-2012. The problem of first-trimester spontaneous abortions occurred during the first season but not the second."
Then..."CDC investigators found the increased risk of spontaneous abortions occurred only in those who had also received an influenza vaccine the previous year."
So what happened the previous year, the 2009-2010 "pandemic" flu season?
"The novel H1N1 vaccine is not intended to replace the seasonal flu vaccine. It is intended to be used alongside seasonal flu vaccine to protect people. Seasonal flu and novel H1N1 vaccines may be administered on the same day."
Did the women suffering fetal demise in 2010-2011 get two influenza shots the previous 2009-2010 year? Or more? Were they still injecting two doses of "regular" influenza (and maybe of H1N1) vaccine, if this was a first time flu shot?

Normally, finding out that a researcher's opinion was influenced a conflict of interest, like receiving millions of dollars in profits, would make that person no longer credible. I think every mention of Paul Offit should include the tens of millions he's making from vaccines. Press that point home again and again and again until it reaches the public consciousness.
