Vaccine Safety

Letter to HHS Secretary Azar on Contradictory Vaccine Safety Positions Held by HHS

62D0DF49-7658-4D46-A9C7-6A63E8F4981Dby Ginger Taylor, MS

Did you know that the Secretary of HHS, Alex Azar, holds FOUR different opinions on the question, "Do Vaccines Cause Autism?"

I decided to write him a letter about it:

###

"November 11, 2018

Dear Secretary Azar,

I am the mother of a vaccine injured child, and I am looking for an explanation as to how four of your departments within HHS can hold four different positions on the question: "Do Vaccines Cause autism?"

At present, as the US Secretary of Health and Human Services, you currently hold four incompatible positions on the relationship between vaccines and autism in the four different departments that you manage and that contribute information to the public on vaccine safety.

In answering the question, "Are vaccines linked to autism?" Your responses are:

The Health Resources Services Administration's position is: Yes.

David Bowman, a spokesman for HHS’s Health Resources and Services Administration commenting on a case of vaccine encephalopathy and autism responded:

“[Vaccine Induced] Encephalopathy may be accompanied by a medical progression of an array of symptoms including autistic behavior, autism, or seizuresi.”

The Food and Drug Administration's position can be summed up as: Maybe sometimes.
On the FDA approved Tripedia vaccine insert:

"Adverse events reported during post-approval use of Tripedia vaccine include idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, SIDS, anaphylactic reaction, cellulitis, autism, convulsion/grand mal convulsion, encephalopathy, hypotonia, neuropathy, somnolence and apnea. Events were included in this list because of the seriousness or frequency of reporting. Because these events are reported voluntarily from a population of uncertain size, it is not always possible to reliably estimate their frequencies or to establish a causal relationship to components of Tripedia vaccineii."

The National Institutes of Health's position can be summed up as: Probably not.
While NIH has not responded to my request for an official position statement on the matter, Dr. Francis Collins wrote on June 13th of 2017 in his NIH Director's Blog, in a post entitled Autism Spectrum Disorder: Progress Toward Earlier Diagnosis:

"Research shows that the roots of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) generally start early—most likely in the womb. That’s one more reason, on top of a large number of epidemiological studies, why current claims about the role of vaccines in causing autism can’t be rightiii."

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention assert: Absolutely not.

Meet The Authors of HPV Vaccine on Trial in Rye, NY November 8

Hpv presentation Rye NY


You're invited to meet the authors of this important book from Skyhorse Publishing called HPV Vaccine on Trial this Thursday, in Rye New York.

A Groundbreaking Exposé to the HPV Vaccine and the Science, Safety, and Business Behind It

Cancer strikes fear in people’s hearts around globe. So the appearance of a vaccine to prevent cancer–as we are assured the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine will–seemed like a game-changer. Since 2006, over eighty countries have approved the vaccine, with glowing endorsements from the world’s foremost medical authorities. Bringing in over $2.5 billion in annual sales, the HPV vaccine is a pharmaceutical juggernaut. Yet scandal now engulfs it worldwide.

The HPV Vaccine on Trial is a shocking tale, chronicling the global efforts to sell and compel this alleged miracle. The book opens with the vaccine’s invention, winds through its regulatory labyrinths, details the crushing denial and dismissal of reported harms and deaths, and uncovers the enormous profits pharma and inventors have reaped. Authors Holland, Mack Rosenberg, and Iorio drill down into the clinical trial data, government approvals, advertising, and personal accounts of egregious injuries that have followed in countries as far-flung as Japan, Australia, Colombia, India, Ireland, the U.K. and Denmark. The authors have written an unprecedented exposé about this vaunted vaccine.

Written in plain language, the book is for everyone concerned – parents, patients, doctors, nurses, scientists, healthcare organizations, government officials, and schools. Ultimately, this book is not just about the HPV vaccine, but about how industry, government, and medical authorities may be putting the world’s children in harm’s way.


Harassment and silencing of vaccine and GM critics by the University of Exeter

image from ngw.nlBy John Stone

I am publishing this brief correspondence to highlight how our higher educational institutions are becoming the enemies of freedom of speech and intellectual curiosity, not to mention purveyors of falsehood. I am not suggesting that Exeter University is particularly unusual: there are lots of publications of this kind from many academic sources, arguing how to limit and close down debate while using ad hominem tactics posing as hard science. It is interesting to note how the university dealt with this matter. The vice-chancellor and CEO, Sir Steve Smith - who is an expert in the politics of globalisation - handed the matter on to the provost, Prof Janice Kay, a cognitive neuropsychologist, who does not really tell us what she thinks, but passes the buck to the politics department, the publishers and the peer reviewers. She must however know that our schools are by now drowning in unprecedented and unexplained neurological impairment. It seems that the university's coat of arms with the motto  lucem sequimur 'we follow the light' has fallen into disuse, and frankly the spirit of enlightenment is dead as GSK and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation take over the world.

Subject: Harassment and silencing of vaccine and GM critics

To Prof Sir Steve Smith, Vice-Chancellor and CEO University of Exeter

Dear Sir Steve,

I would like to express grave disquiet regarding the paper by Lyons et al and the additional publicity given to it by your university. It really will do no good to target people while not addressing their arguments - it is to say the least an open question who is indulging in "innuendo" as your publicity department put it.

A case in point would be the paper's attack on the competence and integrity of Robert F Kennedy Jnr. The article does not address any specifics of Kennedy's argument in his article while labelling him as "a conspiracy theorist". In this regard it is worth noting that by 2004 the British government, without of course admitting any error, had removed mercury from vaccines - the subject of Kennedy's article - and it was only to make a return to doing so in the highly unfortunate and still unaccounted Pandemrix episode. The safety of using the mercury salt preservative thimerosal/thiomersal has been criticised in many scientific publications.

A further problem is that if people are not allowed to express their concerns - or even their unpleasant experiences - a class of product becomes protected and the hazards to the public increase. There can be no automatic assumption that products are safe, and what is proposed is the intellectual and social suppression of views, experience and knowledge inconvenient to global interests and governments. This does not mean that all opinions are equally valid but it does mean that public debate should be tolerated. The very failure to tolerate debate places a question mark of the motives of the people trying to deny it, and it leaves the public in a dangerous position. It is always possible that this or that product has been slandered, but it does not mean that all products or all public bodies meet the standard, and we cannot proceed on this basis.

I believe by promoting "research" of this kind the University of Exeter is placing itself in an invidious historical position, and I look forward to your views.

Yours sincerely,

John Stone, UK and European Editor, AgeofAutism.com

Weighing HPV Vaccine For Yourself, Your Child? Real Answers Now Available.

Jessica
Jessica Ericzon

Note:  Below is the introduction from a new book called HPV Vaccine on Trial, written to give parents and adults of vaccine receiving age complete information.  The book is ranked #1 on Amazon's Preventive Medicine category. That's Jessica Ericzon in the photo. Had this book been available in 2008...

Introduction

Cancer strikes fear in people around the globe. So a vaccine to prevent cancer—as the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine is touted to do—seemed like a game changer. Since 2006, when the US approved the first HPV vaccine, over 125 countries have intro­duced it to prevent cervical and other HPV-related cancers. The three HPV vaccines bring in over $2.5 billion in annual sales for Merck (Gardasil, Gardasil 9) and GlaxoSmithKline (Cervarix). They have been pharmaceutical juggernauts, yet scandal has followed worldwide. The HPV vaccine is on trial—literally and figuratively—around the world in courts of law and public opinion.

No one disputes that cancer is a ravaging disease that leads to death, if uncontrolled. But the fact that cancer is a grave disease does not necessarily mean that a vaccine purporting to prevent it is safe and effective for everyone. The US Food and Drug Administration, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the European Medicines Agency, the World Health Organization, and many oth­er public health agencies have embraced the HPV vaccine as a safe and effective way to prevent HPV-related cancers. Here are a few representative statements:

FDA: Based on the review of available information by FDA and CDC, Gardasil continues to be safe and effective, and its benefits continue to outweigh its risks.

CDC: The HPV vaccine is very safe, and it is effective at preventing HPV. Vaccines, like any medicine, can have side effects. Many people who get the HPV vaccine have no side effects at all. Some people report having very mild side ef­fects, like a sore arm, from the shot. The most common side effects are usually mild.

WHO: The WHO’s Vaccine Safety Committee considers HPV vaccines to be extremely safe.

EMA: The benefits of HPV vaccines continue to outweigh the known side effects.

These official statements contrast starkly with the reports of dev­astating injuries and death that we recount in this book. You’ll get to know these and other children and young adults.

Christina Tarsell, 21 years old.

Chris was an undergrad at Bard College, New York. A tal­ented athlete, artist, and honor student, she received three Gardasil doses when she was twenty-one. Shortly after the third dose, she died in her sleep. After eight years of hard-fought litigation in the only judicial forum available, Chris’s mom “won”—the Court of Federal Claims finally acknowl­edged that Gardasil more likely than not caused the heart attack that led to Chris’s untimely death. You can see Chris, and a memorial to her, in the photo insert.

Alexis Wolf, 13 years old.

In 2007, when Alexis was in 7th grade, she began the Gar­dasil series. After the second dose, her health deteriorated. After the third, she could no longer focus, sleep, eat, or be­have normally. She started to have many seizures every day. She was put in psychiatric hospitals. A year and a half after her symptoms began, Alexis tested at a 4th grade level. Today, at 25, Alexis still suffers from severe neurological injury, in­cluding daily seizures. You can see pictures of Alexis both before and after receiving the vaccine in the photo insert.

The HPV Vaccine On Trial: Seeking Justice for a Generation Betrayed

HPV Vaccine On Trial“This book reveals the tragedy of the HPV vaccine scandal.”

—Dr. Luc Montagnier, Nobel Prize Winner for Discovery of HIV

Please join us in supporting Holland, Mack Rosenberg and Iorio on the debut of their book!

Purchase your copy here.

The HPV Vaccine on Trial: Seeking Justice for a Generation Betrayed paints a devastating picture of corporate and government conflicts of interest, negligence, and malfeasance in approving and promoting human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines, touted to prevent cervical and other cancers. Coming out on the heels of recent New York Times revelations about astounding financial conflicts of interest at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, this groundbreaking book highlights the lack of transparency, manipulated science, and abuse of state power to market this medical juggernaut, already raking in over $2.5 billion per year.

Authors Holland, Rosenberg, and Iorio conclude:

  • HPV vaccines have never been proven to prevent cancer of any kind.
  • No participants in the original HPV clinical trials received true saline placebos.
  • The clinical trials never investigated the vaccine’s possible effects on human fertility or potential to cause cancer.
  • The clinical trials show that the vaccines contribute to HPV lesions, and potentially cancer, in some women. Despite this, neither the manufacturers nor government agencies recommend prescreening to eliminate those with clear risk factors.
  • Although the vaccine is targeted for 11-12-year-old children, only a small fraction of clinical trial subjects was in this age range.

#BelieveWomen. #BelieveAllWomen. #MeToo. #VaccineInjury causes #Autism. #InvestigateFrankDeStefano #FBI!

by Ginger Taylor

Our country has spent more than a week drowning in a "Who Do You Believe?" duel to the death, which continues to become increasingly raw, painful and divisive.  But there is one bright spot... we suddenly have legislators who, after lugging centuries of baggage of treating women like their testimony counts for half a man's, FINALLY have freed themselves, and are...  EVERYWHERE... echoing the cry, #BelieveAllWomen!

Sober conversations about sexual assault and the lack of women's ability to be simply taken seriously so that earnest and proper investigations can be undertaken are taking places in corners of Capitol Hill and State Houses that have previously been bereft of such talk.  And those who have supported women for many years have become aggressive advocates for women's voices this week.

We now have very powerful individuals and groups demanding that women be not only taken seriously, but that they be believed in their claims of harm, and even for the FBI to investigate serious claims from more than 30 years ago.

In fact, in our own State House here in Maine, a bipartisan group of male legislators came forward as a coalition to say that women should be heard and believed.  And it was led by our former Democratic Senate President, Justin Alfond (D), who said, "I believe men need to do a lot less talking, and a lot more listening."

You can imagine how happy I was to hear that, as Mr. Alfond has not listened to Maine moms who have tried to tell the legislature about their vaccine-injured children.  I personally, face-to-face, invited him to meet with Maine moms (AND Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. on his visit to Maine) to hear about our concerns, and he declined.  He didn't want to hear.  Or believe.

I can't express how excited I am that he is now ready to do more listening!

And apparently, that is true of legislators all over DC and the country, as Senator after House Member who have previously been closed to hearing vaccine injury moms are now grabbing every camera they can find to declare that it is now time to #BELIEVEALLWOMEN!


Believeallwomen

So if you see one of your legislators who have finally decided to believe you, get to their office pronto and tell them that you are ready for them to call an FBI investigation on vaccine corruption, beginning with 20-year vaccine fraudster and head of the CDC Vaccine Safety Branch, Frank DeStefano.

British Medical Journal Finally Goes Over The Top On HPV Vaccine Safety

image from upload.wikimedia.orgby John Stone

After months of infighting and latterly outright war in the scientific community - and particularly within the Cochrane Group, formerly Collaboration - British Medical Journal have finally published  a paper questioning the safety of HPV vaccines. This represents a major step forward, because they had previously backed away from publishing a review by the same authors of European Medical Agency data, preferring in May to report the official Cochrane whitewash of the products by Aubyn et al, and only reluctantly reported the paper in July by three of the present authors in its cadet journal BMJ Evidence Based Medicine criticising their Cochrane colleagues - also now defended. All the present authors are historically associated with Cochrane but matters came to a head the weekend before last when the Group sacked one of the co-authors, a founder member board member of Cochrane - Peter  Gøtzsche -  on the basis of  vague and unsubstantiated allegations of bad behaviour, followed by the resignation of four other board members.

While the Cochrane Group is now widely considered to be a sinking ship, it has been frustrating to see weeks of politics overshadowing the incredibly serious criticisms of HPV vaccine safety made in BMJ EBM in July, and this is now somewhat rectified by the new paper which documents the painful and unsatisfactory process of extracting vaccine data from the European Medicines Agency: -

Open Letter from International Organisations to the WHO on the Issue of Vaccine Safety

CHD logoTo the World Health Organisation and those attending the meeting of the Global Vaccine Quality Control Laboratories Network (Rome 25th-27th, September 2018).

To the European Parliament, the European Medicines Agency and the European Directorate for the Quality of Medicines

Dear members of the World Health Organisation,

By sharing science and joining efforts towards better health, your organisation has improved the lives of millions of people, and we are grateful for this. Providing better nutrition, clean water, improved hygiene, and access to medical care, mortality and infectious disease have been drastically reduced. Your extraordinary communication campaign to detect cases of disease and their contacts, and isolate them, finally led to the eradication of the once devastating smallpox.1These are great achievements and these noble goals should be further pursued.  Today however, today we are facing a new epidemic: chronic disease.  In the USA, one in two adults has a chronic disease and one in four has two or more. 2

Obesity, asthma, cancer, immune and autoimmune diseases, neurological and developmental disorders, are ‘lifestyle diseases’ mainly caused or aggravated by bad nutrition and toxic load. Vaccines are administered to healthy individuals to prevent targeted infections, but their long-term impact on the immune system and their potential role in chronic disease is not being evaluated. Individual risk of poor outcomes to both infection and vaccination varies widely and mass vaccination without proper discrimination at the individual level has led to injuries, death, and unintended consequences. Recently, independent researchers and laboratories have discovered that many vaccines are contaminated with retroviruses3 and polluted by nanoparticles 4. High levels of aluminium associated with vaccine adjuvants have been found in the brains of autistic children or in people suffering from neurological disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease.5, 6

In your previous meeting you advocated for less independent testing, considered ‘redundant’, in order to speed up the supply of products.7 The recent administration of 250, 000 defective vaccines in China8, the tragedy of the oral polio campaign in India with over 450, 000 cases of paralysis and death9, the damage caused by the Dengue vaccine in the Philippines10, reports from all over the world of chronic pain and paralysis after administration of the HPV vaccine11, 12,  show that vaccine safety and efficacy are being tragically disregarded in this drive for fast-tracking approval and easy certification.

If developing standards and sharing best practice amongst controlling bodies is needed, testing by national and independent laboratories must be maintained, since fraud and technical hazard from storage or transportation can still occur and biases or new findings would not be detected.  According to your report, « It was noted that the aims of the network are a good fit with industry’s proposal for risk-based testing and networking ».13 But this ‘risk-based’ approach geared to reducing test requirements for vaccines considered of ‘low risk’, seems a dangerous pursuit.

Many health authorities complain about vaccine hesitancy, but fail to reassure the public by providing the safety data they request.  All over the world, millions of people have signed petitions demanding more safety, transparency and independent research, but decision makers chose fast-tracking instead.

A Letter from Peter C Gøtzsche Following his Expulsion From The Cochrane Collaboration & The Chaos within the Group

Cochrane-nordic-820x360Note: Striking letter below from Dr. Peter Gotzsche, Director of the Nordic Cochrane Centre. Please see the original pdf letter here.  Background: What is Cochrane?

The Cochrane Collaboration is a global independent network of researchers, health professionals, patients, carers, and other people interested in health. Cochrane contributors, from more than 130 countries, work together to produce reliable systematic reviews of the benefits and harms of healthcare interventions that are free from commercial sponsorship. These reviews are recognised as representing an international gold standard for high quality, trusted information. Many of our contributors are world leaders in their fields and our groups are situated in some of the world’s most respected academic and medical institutions.

Contributors are affiliated with the organisation through Cochrane groups, which are healthcare related review groups, thematic networks, groups concerned with the methodology of systematic reviews, and regional centres. There is no one place or office that is 'Cochrane'. Our contributors and groups are based all around the world. Each group is a 'mini-organization' in itself, with its own funding, website, and workload.

The Nordic Cochrane Centre

The Nordic Cochrane Centre was established in 1993, the same year as the Cochrane Collaboration. The centre has contributed substantially to Cochrane, particularly within research and IT development. We also co-author guidelines on standards for good reporting of research: CONSORT for transparent reporting of trials, STROBE for observational studies, PRISMA for systematic reviews and SPIRIT for trial protocols. These standards have been endorsed by many prominent scientific journals.

Cochrane reviews are being widely used in the area serviced by the Nordic Cochrane Centre and associated centres, with over 449,000 articles downloaded in 2016. This is an increase of 32% since 2015.

The Nordic Cochrane Centre has also worked closely with the Danish National Board of Health in producing evidence-based national clinical guidelines. The centre is primarily funded by the Danish Government, who also fund the national subscription to the Cochrane Library, ensuring free access for all people living in Denmark. If you would like to know more about our most downloaded reviews, please see our information about the Cochrane Library.

Director of The Nordic Cochrane Centre   Peter_bertel_photo_profile_image

Professor Peter C Gøtzsche graduated as a Master of Science in biology and chemistry in 1974 and as a physician 1984. He is a specialist in internal medicine; worked with clinical trials and regulatory affairs in the drug industry 1975-1983, and at hospitals in Copenhagen 1984-95. With about 80 others, he helped start The Cochrane Collaboration in 1993 with the founder, Sir Iain Chalmers, and established The Nordic Cochrane Centre the same year. He became a professor of Clinical Research Design and Analysis in 2010 at the University of Copenhagen.  In 2017, he was elected to the Cochrane Governing Board, the Cochrane Collaboration's uppermost authority.

Peter has published more than 70 papers in "the big five" (BMJ, Lancet, JAMA, Ann Intern Med and N Engl J Med) and his scientific works have been cited 30,000 times (his H-index is 63 according to Web of Science). Peter is author of:

  • Deadly psychiatry and organised denial (to appear in September 2015)
  • Deadly medicines and organised crime: How big pharma has corrupted health care (2013)
  • Mammography screening: truth, lies and controversy (2012)
  • Rational diagnosis and treatment: evidence-based clinical decision-making (2007)

Peter has an interest in statistics and research methodology. He is a member of several groups publishing guidelines for good reporting of research and has co-authored CONSORT for randomised trials (www.consort-statement.org), STROBE for observational studies (www.strobe-statement.org) and SPIRIT for trial protocols (www.spirit-statement.org). Peter was one of the editors of the Cochrane Methodology Review Group 1997-2014.

A moral governance crisis: the growing lack of democratic collaboration and scientific pluralism in  Cochrane

I regret to inform you that I have been expelled from membership in the Cochrane Collaboration by the favourable vote of  6 of the 13 members of the Governing Board. No clear reasoned justification has been given for my expulsion aside from accusing me of causing “disrepute” for the organization. This is the first time in 25 years that a member has been excluded from membership of Cochrane.

This unprecedented action taken by a minority of the Governing Board is disproportionate and damaging to Cochrane, as well as to public health interests.  As a result of this decision, and a number of broader issues concerning the inadequate governance of Cochrane, in accordance with its principles and objectives, four other members of the Board have resigned.

As a result, the Cochrane Collaboration has entered an unchartered territory of crisis and lack of strategic direction. A recovery from this dire situation would call for the dissolution of the present board, new elections and a broad based participatory debate about the future strategy and governance of the organization.

Dr. Ben Goldacre Weighs on on Side of Vaccine Study Transparency

Aiden quinn elementaryNote: Age of Autism's John Stone first wrote about Dr. Ben Goldacre in 2010 What's Behind Ben Goldacre. Read the following article Public Health England withholding vaccines results making it impossible to establish if drugs could be harmful Public Health England withholding vaccines results making it impossible to establish if drugs could be harmful with both eyes. Is the "game" of actual vaccine science seeing the light of day afoot? 

T
he failure of England's public healthy body to publish results of three major studies into vaccines for children makes it impossible for experts to establish whether the drugs could be harmful, scientists have claimed.

Hundreds of children took part in three potentially risky Government drug trials, but Public Health England (PHE) breached the law by failing to add the findings to the official register set up to allow the scientific community to scrutinise the outcomes.

Experts have accused PHE of an “incomprehensible” violation of the trust of parents who gave their consent for their children to take part in the tests.

The largest trial involved 640 participants under the age of 16 whose parents gave consent for them to be selected at random to try a new meningococcal and whooping cough booster vaccine.

While dangerous side-effects in a trial at this stage are rare, a risk does exist. Participants also take a gamble by offering themselves up for selection for a new drug which might not protect them as well as the standard therapy.

The trial concluded in 2016, but the results have not yet appeared on the EU Clinical Trials Register (EUCTR), in breach of EU law which requires registration within 12 months, nor published anywhere else.

The failure to register means there is currently no way for the public to know how those children fared.

Last night Dr Ben Goldacre, the Oxford academic whose analysis revealed the PHE omission, told The Sunday Telegraph: “It is incomprehensible to me that Public Health England of all the trials it could leave unreported to have failed to comply with the legal requirements to report trials of vaccines. 

“When patients participate and they take a risk with their own health. We have to respect their contribution by publishing the results properly. If we don’t, that is a betrayal of trust.”  Read more at Public Health England withholding vaccines results making it impossible to establish if drugs could be harmful Public Health England withholding vaccines results making it impossible to establish if drugs could be harmful.

  • Lawsuits against HPV vaccine manufacturers and government health agencies are progressing around the world, including the US, India, Japan, Colombia, Spain, and France.
  • The US government earns millions in royalties from Merck and GSK, the vaccine manufacturers, for its role in the invention of HPV vaccine technology.
  • Although the US government proclaims HPV vaccines safe and effective, it has paid out millions of dollars to compensate families for death, brain injury, multiple sclerosis, ulcerative colitis, and other severe, debilitating conditions.

With praise from some of the world’s leading scientists on aluminum, autoimmunity, and vaccines, this book fills a critical void, giving people information they need to make commonsense decisions about this vaccine. Written in plain language, The HPV Vaccine on Trial ultimately is about how industry, government, and medical authorities may be putting children in harm’s way.

Students Fall Ill after Measles Rubella Vaccination in India

D Ray MoneyNote: This is unacceptable. Or should be.  The vaccines were “from WHO and of the highest quality” - insert eye roll. Possibly so - the highest quality vaccine for many of our children was the equivalent of a bullet in the head. And vaccination program will continue. Of course. There's no need to stop a worldwide money maker just because 25 or so children got sick enough to go to the hospital taking a product that is supposed to keep them out of the hospital. Madness. And guess what was blame for the sickness. Not the vaccine. Madness. Literally. Hysteria. The emotion usually reserved for women. 

Hailakandi: As many as 25 students of Sahabad ME Madrassa, around 25km from here, under Katlicherra revenue circle in Hailakandi district of south Assam fell sick after being administered measles-rubella vaccine on Saturday.

Hailakandi deputy commissioner Adil Khan has ordered a probe to be headed by joint director of health ser vices Dr Avijit Basu and district immunization officer (DIO) Dr K.Thambalsena. They have been asked to submit a report to the deputy commissioner immediately.

Katlicherra legislator Suzamuddin Laskar, district development commissioner F.R. Laskar, additional deputy commissioner E.L. Fairhiem, circle officer James Aind and other officials visited the school and the block primary health centre (PHC) to take stock of the situation.

Following the vaccination, just after the mid-day meal, several students complained of nausea, fever, stomachache and vomiting and had to be admitted to the nearest Katlicherra Block PHC.

Basu, who rushed to the site, said six students have been hospitalised, while the rest were being kept under observation and would be discharged soon.  Read more here.


Houston We Have Autism Biomarkers

by Ginger Taylor

Glutathione s-Transferase
Glutathione s-Transferase (GST)

Apparently we have had biomarkers for autism for five years.

Remember when Tom Insel, the man tasked by the federal government to coordinate autism research via the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee, said that what we really needed was biomarkers for autism, and then failed to find us any biomarkers for autism? Then blew town for Google when the Thompson scandal broke in 2014?

Well apparently they were found in 2013, and ignored by Insel. He probably missed it, as they were discovered in a tiny, backwater outfit that no one has ever heard of called the New York State Department of Health.

And prepare to be shocked (or not), but the biggest tell at birth that a child is at risk for autism... wait for it... their levels of Glutathione s-Transferase (GST), the enzyme that links glutathione to toxic substances so they can be escorted out of the body.

Hmmm... if only someone had told us sooner that this was a detox issue from the day of birth... when babies are getting Hep B vaccine.

Apparently Dr. Gerald Mizejewski, God bless his curious heart, was wondering if there were any biomarkers for autism that would be present at birth, and then remembered, “Hey! We are the New York State Department of Health! We have blood spot samples from 12 million children taken at birth!”

So he went and found some kids with autism, and then pulled their blood spot cards to have them tested.

“In collaboration with the Center for Disability Services (NY, USA), 40 families with autistic children between the ages of 3 and 5 years born in New York State who had been diagnosed with autism at the center, were selected from among a group of 200 cases. A single developmental pediatrician made all the diagnoses using the DSMIV-TR criteria [12], thus assuring that diagnosis was consistent from child to child. These families were contacted by the center, provided with a description of the study and its goals and invited to participate in the study. A brief questionnaire and consent form were included in the mailing (CFDS IRB 07-010) and 20 positive responses were returned. Using the information provided by the parents regarding date of birth, 16 of these infants were identified in the repository of residual frozen newborn screening specimens at the Wadsworth Center (NYS IRB 07-044). “

“The specimens were submitted to Rules-Based Medicine (TX, USA) for analysis in their multiplex immunoassay system.” They tested for 90 biomarkers. They got 15 hits.

“Among the 15 biomarkers, the best set of five ranked in order from the highest BIC score included GST, Lp(a), IL-7, IL-5 and TNFa (Table 2). The second best set included thyroidstimulating hormone (TSH), KLK3, calcitonin (CCT) and IL-4 in addition to ferritin. The third best set included IL-8, TNFa, MUC16, TIMP-1 and AFP.

They kindly provided a list of those biomarkers and their biomedical and biochemical links to autism:

Sacha Baron Cohen's More Obnoxious Cousin Disqualifies Himself as an Autism Researcher

by Ginger Taylor

SimonIn response to JB Handley's new book, How to End the Autism Epidemic, long irrelevant researcher Simon Baron-Cohen has reached a new level of unethical, nonsensical obnoxiousness, by declaring that if you try to prevent autism, you are a Nazi eugenicist:

“I am disgusted by the #EndAutismNow campaign. This is hate speech and eugenics. How is this different to the Nazi EndJewsNow (1939-45) & the KKK white supremacist EndBlacksNow campaigns (1860-2018)? Treat symptoms in autistic people that cause suffering, but don't prevent autism.”

So many question here... my mind is reeling.

It is good of Mr. Cohen to give us permission to treat the symptoms of autism, but only, I guess, if they are symptoms that cause suffering. How that is measured and achieved, I am not sure. If for example, you treat brain inflammation, which in turn ends Self Injurious Behavior, but also flapping, do you have to figure out a way to put back the flapping?

And what if, a woman goes on a strict protocol where she detoxes starting a year before getting pregnant, avoids every known and suspected environmental trigger for autism, and gives birth to a healthy, typically developing child that never suffers an autistic regression. Did she murder her own child? We need to call in the police to investigate every NT child to see if they have been assassinated just in case.

Sure, an autism diagnosis for a child instantly makes them 40 times more likely than their peers to die young, cutting their life expectancy in half to age 36, and preventing a case of autism would jump that life expectancy back to the 77 or so years their peers have, but preventing an early death by preventing autism is also murder, so you are not allowed to do it.

Ok that does not make any sense to me either, but Simon is a scientist so just go with it.

Wait... Simon... if you are allowed to treat autism symptoms that cause a child's suffering, are you allowed to prevent autism symptoms that cause a child's suffering? Or does a child have to suffer with them first, THEN you can get rid of them? And how long do you make them live with it before you decide it meets your threshold for allowable treatment? 1 year? Long enough for them to report it? What if they are non-verbal and unable to successfully report which symptoms they suffer from and which they don't mind? Do we have to wait until they can type? Or until the age of consent, for them to contract with someone themselves for treatment/homicide?  Suicide?  Assisted suicide?

I am concerned that if we treat for an autistic symptom that is not actually causing suffering, that we might be killing the child. But I guess that if we wait until that child is an adult to seek treatment on their own, that technically they are committing suicide if they are accidentally treated for something else than simply the symptoms that cause suffering.

Hey... if a teenager goes on a gluten free casein free diet, are they committing self-harm?  Would that require inpatient treatment, or is outpatient treatment sufficient?

New Study: Aluminium in Brain Tissue in Multiple Sclerosis

Aluminium in Brain Tissue in Multiple Sclerosis

Mold M, Chmielecka A, Rodriguez MRR, Thom F, Linhart C., King A, Exley C.

 
 

Abstract

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a devastating and debilitating neurodegenerative disease of unknown cause. A consensus suggests the involvement of both genetic and environmental factors of which the latter may involve human exposure to aluminium. There are no data on the content and distribution of aluminium in human brain tissue in MS. The aluminium content of brain tissue from 14 donors with a diagnosis of MS was determined by transversely heated graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry. The location of aluminium in the brain tissue of two donors was investigated by aluminium-specific fluorescence microscopy. The aluminium content of brain tissue in MS was universally high with many tissues bearing concentrations in excess of 10 μg/g dry wt. (10 ppm) and some exceeding 50 ppm. There were no statistically significant relationships between brain lobes, donor age or donor gender. Aluminium-specific fluorescence successfully identified aluminium in brain tissue in both intracellular and extracellular locations. The association of aluminium with corpora amylacea suggests a role for aluminium in neurodegeneration in MS. View Full-Text
 

Citizen Josh Mazer Alerts Maryland Legislators, School Board & PTA Members to HPV Vaccine Review

GardasilA thousand thanks to Josh Mazer for sharing his campaign to alert Maryland decision makers about the dangers of HPV vaccination. They ought to know already since they are pushing the HPV vaccine, but they do not since their info comes from Pharma and Public Health lobbyists.  The action alert to Governor Hogan is here.

Dear Maryland State Legislator, School Board Member, and PTA Member:

The prestigious Cochrane Review has announced today through BMJ 
BMJ HPV Vaccine Safety Aug 9 2018  that they will be initiating an immediate and “urgent” review of the safety claims made about the HPV vaccine.

From: Mazer, Josh
Sent: Tuesday, August 07, 2018 8:09 AM

Subject: RE: Flint, Michigan Comes to Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene

Dear Dr. Haft:

Thank you for your prompt and courteous response. I appreciate the copy of the latest effort 
Revised School Letter  by your office to enlist state school personnel as de facto sales reps for Merck’s HPV vaccine. The current letter contains the same glaring, ethically indefensible lapses as the original letter- with the exception that you are including my recommended reference to HPV being an STD . The letter does not provide in any measure facts needed to create the moral and ethical imperative of informed medical consent. If you are not willing to publicly announce that our state schools and school personnel are being co-opted in this manner, the public policy is wrong and should be terminated post haste. Are you ready to make a public announcement that our schools are being used to target a captive audience of trusting 11 and 12 year olds for sales of a pharma product?

You write: “I believe you were not correct in your assertion that the State receives $96 million in funding from pharma to promote HPV vaccine. You seem to be pointing to the VFC funding which is provided to the State from the Federal government through the CDC.”

I did not say “receives.” I said received over 5 years.

Dr. Pete Doshi Peter Doshi, PhD, is an assistant professor of pharmaceutical health services research at the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy and associate editor at The BMJ (formerly, British Medical Journal). Here is his 2017 analysis out of BMJ describing how CDC and pharma funded front groups lobby state legislatures by washing pharma money through ostensible “non profits” such as VFC:

“Education or lobbying?

Officially, the CDC is neutral on vaccine mandates, and the agency steers clear of directly influencing state law, telling The BMJ: “CDC’s policy is to not take positions on state-specific legislation.

But the CDC gives money to non-profits that actively work in this void. Presumably, these activities are funded from non-CDCsources, as US federal law prohibits the use of CDC award money for lobbying, a prohibition that “includes grass roots lobbying efforts by award recipients that are directed at inducing members of the public to contact their elected representatives to urge support of, or opposition to, proposed or pending legislation,” according to CDC policy.”

How Scientists Use Statistical Deception to Fake Influenza Vaccine Effectiveness

Flu shot giftNote: As we approach the dreaded "FLU SEASON" which is now like the season of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer in my house, 10 months a year, we are pleased to share this article from VacTruth.

By Tom Stavola

Statistical manipulation misinforms people by use of false measurements.

Vaccine scientists often conceal the true effectiveness of the influenza vaccine through risk calculations. Researchers use a calculation that essentially artificially inflates the effectiveness of influenza vaccines. Rather than use the statistical measure that more truthfully represents vaccine effectiveness, the researchers choose to use a statistical measure that makes vaccines appear more effective than they truly are.

Why is this important?

The published studies that report high effectiveness rates are then used by governmental agencies, your pediatrician, and mainstream media to attempt to increase influenza vaccine uptake rates. In other words – it is a tactic designed to convince you to get the flu vaccine every year.

To understand this specific deception technique, you will need to understand two risk concepts used to obscure findings: Relative Risk (RR) and Absolute Risk Reduction (ARR).

Relative Risk (RR) Explained

Relative Risk compares the chance of a bad outcome between two groups. Statistical definition: the proportion of bad outcomes in the experimental group (group #1) divided by the proportion of bad outcomes in the control group (group #2). Relative Risks under 1.0 indicate the tested medical intervention helped patients, while relative risks over 1.0 indicate the medical intervention hurt patients.

Absolute Risk Reduction (ARR) Explained

Absolute Risk Reduction measures the absolute difference in bad outcomes between two groups (group #1 and group #2). Statistical definition: the proportion of bad outcomes in the control group minus the proportion of bad outcomes in the experimental group (in this case, a larger number means the treatment was helpful, while a small number means the treatment didn’t do much to help, and a negative number means the treatment was hurtful).
Why RR and ARR are Different

Relative risk tells you how badly one group fared in comparison to another group, in relative terms. It’s akin to saying, “Johnny jumped half as high as Timmy” – but you never know how high each of them jumped. Absolute risk reduction – on the other hand – tells you the actual difference in outcomes between the two groups. This would be akin to saying, “Johnny jumped 8 feet high, but Timmy jumped 16 feet high.” One can see that the absolute risk reduction is a more helpful, informative statistical measure; whereas, it’s easier to hide the magnitude of the differences behind relative comparisons.

Again, why is this relevant to vaccines?

Doctor Describes Severe Reaction to Shingrix Vaccine with Refreshing Transparency

ShinglesBy Kim Rossi

Many years ago, I worked for a wonderful woman who became a mentor and second mother to me. She had a saying, "Don't punish progress."  I think of her wise words every day. When one of my girls attempts to put a dish in the dishwasher - I praise her and show her how to rinse off the globs of food rather than saying, "That was good BUT...."  Buts are rotten.  They negate praise.

I often think we're missing this point in the vaccine injury community. We've sides and factions and I've seen some pretty cruel shaming and blaming over the years for being too anti-vax or not not anti-vax enough.  Many of us have kids with autism - young and adult. We're just trying to get through the day unscathed or not too scathed, and the jabs and slings and arrows really hurt. You do your thing and let me do mine. Below is a question from a medical advice column that ran in The Detroit News. Dr. Roach answers honestly about Shingrix (shingles vax) side effects. Shingles are terribly painful and disruptive and people are getting shingles younger and younger - even as children no longer get chicken pox in the same numbers. (Mother Nature exacts her pound of flesh, doesn't she?) Dr. Roach says up to 10% of recipients may experience severe side effects. That's progress. He doesn't say NEVER EVER GET THIS VACCINE!  (I'm over 50 and I ain't nevah evah getting this vaccine, FYI.)  I can understand someone  outside our community wanting Shingrix to prevent shingles. Dr. Roach also suggested Tylenol. Ugh. Still, he acknowledges side effects in a major US newspaper. That's progress.

###


Doc: Better to prepare for repeat of Shingrix reaction

Dear Dr. Roach: I received the first dose of Shingrix (which help prevent getting shingles) this week and had pretty severe side effects, though in the range of what can be expected: high fever (101.5), intense shivering, a severe headache and 12 hours of extreme fatigue. The entire reaction began 11 hours after the shot and ended 18 hours after that. I am 61 and in excellent health, taking only 25 mcg of levothyroxine daily.

I have a few questions that I hope you can answer. I’ve tried looking at the clinical trial results for Shingrix, but I am not qualified to understand the information as presented.

1. Is it likely that I’ll have a similar (or worse?) reaction to the second shot? The package insert says one can react to the first, second, neither or both.

2. Are both injections identical?

3. When I had chickenpox as a child, I was way sicker than the average kid. Related?

4. If I get shingles, do I have a higher risk for a severe case?

J.G.

Dear J.G.: Compared with the previous one-time vaccine Zostavax, the new two-dose Shingrix vaccine is much more effective. However, it does have a higher risk of side effects. You have had the most common side effect, though only 10 percent of people will have symptoms as bad as yours. These symptoms are caused by your body mounting an inflammatory response to the glycoprotein in the vaccine (the new vaccine does not contain a live virus). You clearly have a robust system to fight off infection.

To answer your questions in order: You are at higher risk for a similar reaction for the second shot. I would plan your day accordingly, and premedicate with Tylenol (even though it may make the vaccine slightly less effective). The second vaccine is identical to the first. I have read recent reports that there are widespread shortages of the vaccine.

Chickenpox and shingles can affect you both by the virus attacking you and by an exuberant inflammatory and immune reaction. I would guess that you are at lower risk for viral complications (such as infection of the eye, brain or lungs) but at higher risk for symptoms due to your own system, such as high fever. In many cases, the body’s response to infection can be as damaging as the infection itself.


British Medical Journal Fails On “First Do No Harm” Over HPV Vaccines

image from encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.comby  John Stone

"If the contents of either of the papers became widely known it would surely have sounded the global death knell for the products and also called twelve years of government policy into question. When balancing the welfare of British children against the interests of industry and state it seems in the end the children barely weighed."

Serious ethical questions arise over the role of British Medical Journal and the promotion of Human Papillomavirus vaccines. Back in May BMJ published a news report of the Cochrane Review of HPV vaccines by former London Times journalist Nigel Hawkes “HPV vaccines are effective and safe and work best in young women, review finds”. It has come to light in the blog of Prof David Healy (author Pharmageddon and Let Them Eat Prozac ) that the BMJ knew the reasons for this confidence were at best extremely controversial, and that the journal itself had turned down an earlier paper by members of Nordic Cochrane (including leading scientists Peter Gøtzsche and Tom Jefferson) highlighting major flaws in the science surrounding the products. Healy states:

“ Some months back, the Nordic Cochrane Center, one of the centres in the Cochrane Collaboration, sent a review of studies done on the HPV vaccine to the BMJ.  Much to their surprise, BMJ turned down this article which contained all studies done on HPV and a serious attempt to flag up the limitations of the trials and accordingly the limitations of what we could confidently say.”

This paper is still unpublished but two weeks ago BMJ Evidenced Based Medicine published a second paper by the Nordic Cochrane group, Lars Jørgensen, Peter Gøtzsche and Tom Jefferson attacking the foundations of the Cochrane Review, as reported on Age of Autism last week and now available in full from Prof Healy’s site. Despite the BMJ Group publication the main journal chose not to publicise this extraordinarily newsworthy event. (It might be said that news is not what it was and this is one of the most blatant suppressions of  the news in modern medicine - the "Fake" comes in not reporting.)

While there is no doubt that the BMJ Group is commercially conflicted, not only accepting advertising from all the manufacturers – GSK, Merck and Sanofi - but also being in historic partnership with Merck, perhaps the real reasons are even more disturbing and relate BMJ’s peculiar relationship as the journal of the British Medical Association (the doctors’ trade union) with the British medical profession. If the contents of either of the papers became widely known it would surely have sounded the global death knell for the products and also called twelve years of government policy into question. When balancing the welfare of British children against the interests of industry and state it seems in the end the children barely weighed.

Last week the present writer tried to challenge a senior BMA member - Dr Peter English, Chair of its Public Health Medicines Committee - in the on-line columns of BMJ:

“As a “Public Health Physician” Peter English seems to express a breath-taking disdain for the public, while also apparently eliding any critical view of vaccines at all with being “anti-science”… I wonder what he thinks the public, particularly prospective vaccinees and their families, should be allowed to know about the recent paper by Jørgensen regarding the inadequacies in the trialing of HPV vaccines?”.

Naturally, it was not published.

 PostScript: In a 2008 letter to BMJ regarding HPV vaccine, co-signed by Prof Keith Neal, Peter English discloses:

"Competing interests: Between them the authors have given occasional lectures for, received expenses for professional conferences from, and participated in advisory boards for various pharmaceutical companies, including GlaxoSmithKline, Sanofi Pasteur MSD, and others."

Prevnar May be Increasing Resistant STREP Strain

DominoesNote: Is the resistant strep appearing as a result of the pneumococcal vaccine the strain that causes PANDAS, a previously unheard of infection that presents as severe OCD and often violent "mental illness"?  The article says "effect," not side effect. After all, vaccines work except when they don't. Save lives except when they kill. And have no side effects except occasional swelling and redness at the injection site except when they do.

###

A vaccine that has dramatically curbed pneumonia and other serious illnesses in children is having an unfortunate effect: promoting new superbugs that cause ear infections.

On Monday, doctors reported discovering the first such germ that is resistant to all drugs approved to treat childhood ear infections. Nine toddlers in Rochester, N.Y., have had the germ and researchers say it may be turning up elsewhere, too.

It is a strain of strep bacteria not included in pneumococcal vaccine, Wyeth's Prevnar, which came on the market in 2000. It is recommended for children under age 2.

Doctors say parents should continue to have their toddlers get the shots because the vaccine prevents serious illness and even saves lives. But the new resistant strep is a worry.

"The best way to prevent these resistant infections from spreading is to be careful about how we use antibiotics," said Dr. Cynthia Whitney, chief of respiratory diseases at the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Avoiding antibiotics when they are not needed is the best way to ensure they will work when they are, she said.

 

If the new strains continue to spread, "it tells us the vaccine is becoming less effective" and needs to be revised, said Dr. Dennis Maki, infectious diseases chief at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Hospitals and Clinics.

$101 Million Dollar Vaccine Injury Award for Encephalopathy from MMR Vaccine

RouletteNote: This post brings no joy, despite the "win" so to speak.  Vaccines can and do cause grievous harm and even death.  God bless this child and her family. Money can not bring back health, nor assuage the guilt of thinking you were doing the right thing by your child, only to be shattered by the lie of complete vaccine safety.

(July 17th, 2018 – SARASOTA, FL) — Attorneys at Maglio Christopher & Toale, P.A. negotiated a $101 million dollar settlement for an infant who suffered a severe reaction to the Measles Mumps Rubella (MMR) vaccine.
 
O.R.* was a one-year-old healthy baby girl who was already walking and climbing.  On February 13, 2013, she received vaccinations for Measles Mumps Rubella (MMR), Hepatitis A, Haemophilus Influenzae type B (Hib), Prevnar (pneumonia), and Varicella (chickenpox).  That evening, the mother noticed baby O.R. was irritable and feverish. After a call to the pediatrician, the doctor advised Mom to give her Tylenol and Benadryl. The fever continued for several days and on the evening before the baby’s scheduled pediatrician visit, O.R. began having severe seizures. She was rushed to the emergency room.  Baby O.R. went into cardiac and respiratory arrest and doctors placed her on a ventilator.
 
The seizures and cardiac arrest left O.R. with a severe brain injury, encephalopathy, cortical vision impairment, truncal hypotonia (low muscle tone), and kidney failure. After months of treatment at the hospital, baby O.R. finally went home, but her disabilities require specialized medical care and supervision around the clock for the rest of her life.

Breaking News: Attack By Nordic Cochrane Calls Cochrane Review Of HPV Vaccines Into Question But Has Wider Implications

image from upload.wikimedia.orgby John Stone

An astonishing attack by three members of the Nordic Cochrane group in BMJ Evidenced Based Medicine on the recent Cochrane review of HPV vaccines, Arbyn et al Prophylactactic vaccination against human papillomaviruses to prevent cervical cancer and its precursors  calls not only the integrity and competence of the review into question, but poses by implication the most serious questions about how the products themselves were designed, trialed, licensed and marketed. The authors of the present of review of the review have been associated with a series of complaints against the European Medicines Agency concerning the vaccines and their safety. The Arbyn paper concludes:

There is high-certainty evidence that HPV vaccines protect against cervical precancer in adolescent girls and young women aged 15 to 26. The effect is higher for lesions associated with HPV16/18 than for lesions irrespective of HPV type. The effect is greater in those who are negative for hrHPV or HPV16/18 DNA at enrolment than those unselected for HPV DNA status. There is moderate-certainty evidence that HPV vaccines reduce CIN2+ in older women who are HPV16/18 negative, but not when they are unselected by HPV DNA status.

We did not find an increased risk of serious adverse effects. Although the number of deaths is low overall, there were more deaths among women older than 25 years who received the vaccine. The deaths reported in the studies have been judged not to be related to the vaccine. Increased risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes after HPV vaccination cannot be excluded, although the risk of miscarriage and termination are similar between trial arms. Long-term of follow-up is needed to monitor the impact on cervical cancer, occurrence of rare harms and pregnancy outcomes.

The key findings new paper by Jørgensen, Gøtzsche and Jefferson are:

-The Cochrane human papillomavirus (HPV)
vaccine review missed nearly half of the eligible
trials.
-The review was influenced by reporting bias
and biased trial designs.
-Authors of Cochrane reviews should make
every effort to identify all trials and the trials’
limitations

They found that the authors had included in the review only 26 of 46 eligible trials and state for this reason alone the conclusion "'that the risk of reporting bias may be small' was inappropriate" and they warn that none of the trials included were anyway for the new product Gardasil 9 which many countries are switching to. They further castigate the Cochrane review for using misleading language, referring to trials against placebo when all those included in the review were against "active comparators: adjuvants (aluminium hydroxide (Al[OH]3) or amorphous aluminium hydroxyphosphate sulfate [AAHS]) or hepatitis vaccines". They identify this as a bias in the original design of the trials masking the harm of the vaccines, and they note that women were excluded from trials if they had received adjuvants before or a history of immunological or nervous disorders. They say that this lowered the validity of trials and suggested that the manufacturers were concerned about the harms of the product in these groups, although no packet warnings are included.

They further complain that Arbyn failed to mention cases of cervical cancer in the trial groups but also that the relationship CIN2 lesions and cancer was uncertain since they regressed spontaneously in women under 30 who were mostly the subjects of the trial. They also say that the review misreported trials. In the so called PATRICIA trial where Cochrane reported 701 vs 699 from the trial publication, and 835 vs 829 in its "Clinical trial.gov" entry the Nordic Cochrane group found 1046 vs 982. Some trials recorded no adverse events at all and had very short follow up periods. While the original review could detect no pattern to the greater risk of death in the vaccinate vs comparator groups (51 vs 39) the Nordic Cochrane point out:

A death may be coded in a way that does not raise suspicion that the vaccine caused it; for example,a ‘traumatic head injury’ or ‘drowning’ could have been caused by a ‘syncope’, which is a recognised harm.

A meta-analysis which sought determine funding bias was flawed because the one trial which was deemed to be not funded by manufacturers was in fact funded by GSK by a circuitous route, and they failed to mention a report by the WHO Uppsala Monitoring Centre which found:

that found serious harms following HPV vaccination overlapping with two syndromes: postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) and complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS).

Instead they had relied on assurances from the European Medicines Agency handed down from the manufacturers. They note that in contravention of Cochrane guidelines 14 of the authors on the original protocol for the review had significant conflicts, as did three of the four authors of the final paper. While the main thrust of the paper is that Cochrane - to which the authors are affiliated -  needs to clean up its act, we all may wonder at how the governments of the world have allowed pharmaceutical companies to subject young women to these ill-tested and dangerous products for the last dozen years, and even at how the pre-marketing trials in the format described were ever allowed. We shudder over the fact that in the last week the recommendation for Gardasil 9 has extended to boys and young men in the United Kingdom, and that in France the vaccine is about to be made compulsory. We know we cannot trust the pharmaceutical industry but how can we ever trust our governments?

The Global Vaccine Crisis of 2018: Why Andrew Wakefield is Back in the News

image from www.rescuepost.comBy John Stone

"Perhaps the most fundamental point is that having established this uninterrupted global pipeline for the industry’s products to the world’s children they have failed to ensure manufacturing standards even according to their own criteria."

An experienced pharma watcher has said to me repeatedly in the past few days: "There is something going on". He is not looking directly at pharma he is watching the prolonged and hostile media coverage of the friendship of Andrew Wakefield and Elle Macpherson as revealed to the public by the Daily Mail: something which to most people - except those who might know them personally - might be of only momentary interest, if any: but also the source of a great swirling mist of unprincipled junk journalism which has now be going on for a week. I was drawn into this maelstrom  myself last week by a Daily Telegraph feature writer, Rosa Silverman, who wanted to interview me about this non-issue (certainly not a public one) and the "anti-vaccine movement in the US". Rosa quoted me a number of times, which I barely expected (that was the one thing which surprised me). Nevertheless, having thought about the article  "Whatever happened to Andrew Wakefield: the curious rehabilitation of the doctor behind the MMR scare" (18 July)" for a day I felt obliged to complain about both the stereo-typing and failure to address the information  I had passed to her (my letters to her and the Telegraph with information I emailed her are published below).

But the big question is “Why?”. The answer is surely with all bathetic baying and shrieking from the press about nothing in particular that the global vaccine government complex could not be in more trouble. What would happen if anyone outside our sphere started to put together the stories we have seen in recent days? Perhaps the most fundamental point is that having established this uninterrupted global pipeline for the industry’s products to the world’s children they have failed to ensure manufacturing standards even according to their own criteria. So, now we have had  in a matter of  days the China scandal, we have RFKjnr’s revelation that the HHS has shirked its responsibility to inspect and report on vaccine safety every two years for the last three decades, and we have the Italian CORVELVA group saying that 5 out 7 schedule vaccines  they had independently inspected failed to meet biological standards.

Also running are stories about MMR in Samoa and  oral polio vaccine in Kenya. We have the long running saga of Gatti and Montanari in Italy.  Even before you get to the issue of whether the products could be considered safe by design, we have the great unlikelihood in many parts of the world, or possibly any part of the world, that they are routinely manufactured and delivered correctly. And rather than admit that the products are faulty the powers that be just prefer that they go on being injected into everybody’s children without saying anything, because the only important thing for them is that everyone goes on believing in the infallibility of the program.

 I do not mention in this context other important stories like Dengvaxia in the Philippines , Christopher Exley's revelations about aluminium in autistic brains or Gayle DeLong’s about HPV vaccines and infertility - things beginning to impinge on the reputation of the vaccine complex.

The point at this juncture is that the global industry is in monumental trouble, acting in such a way as to strain the faith of  persons normally much less sceptical of the aims of the program than the traditional readers of this column, and it needs to create a distraction - and what we have from at least the  British media in Orwellian terms is this pathetic chant of “Four legs good, two legs bad”. They are attempting to drum out the very possibility of thought: all anyone needs to know now is that Andrew Wakefield - who once dared to question the vaccine project in some way - was/is a very bad man. But I would point out another possibility that most onlookers will be completely perplexed: they will just be saying like my pharma watcher as they get daily more fed up with the feeble-mindedness and illogical antics of the mainstream media: “There is something going on”.

You bet there is!

Complaint letter to the Telegraph: Case: 17796369 - Re: Daily Telegraph feature on anti-vaccination movement (anyone wishing to  support write to telegraphenquiries@telegraph.co.uk)

Dear Sirs,

 
I wish to make a formal complaint against Rosa Silverman's article "Whatever happened to Andrew Wakefield: the curious rehabilitation of the doctor behind the MMR scare" (18 July). I wrote to her four days ago (below) making some of my concerns known and she has failed to reply. As will be seen from previous emails I had taken every trouble to point out the solid basis of the concerns of vaccine critics, the systematic misreporting of the Wakefield affair and although she quoted me extensively she made no attempt to report on the foundations of people's concerns rather than simply disparaging them as people. I note that in our interview (which took place on a pleasant and respectful basis) RS posed the intelligent question whether opposition to vaccines in the US was ideological or more commonly because the sceptics were parents whose children had been injured (then characterised as anti-vaccine), and I confirmed that I believed the latter (and coming from all over the political spectrum): but in the article everyone is reduced to a conspiracy believing post-Trump phenomenon. 
 
The reality at the present time is that the US Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting Database has reported more than 650,000 events since 1990 and being a passive reporting database this is likely no more than 1% of cases, many of which may include irreparable harm. Additionally, in the last few days Robert F KennedyJnr has wrung an admission from the HHS that they failed to honour their obligation under the National Childhoood Vaccine Injury Act to report on the safety of vaccines every two years: in fact going back to 1986 they never did at all. In the UK and Europe further questions arise over the alertness and independence of bodies like the MHRA and the EMA which are largely funded by the industry. These are people's real concerns, not Andrew Wakefield's private life, which should have remained private. 
 
The continued scapegoating of Wakefield in the British media is not only deplorable, it looks as if it is a deliberate attempt to distract from the real issues, and we seem to have returned to the realms of Orwell's 5 minutes hate. I do wish RS had not gone off into this reprehensible territory as many other journalists who should know better have done in recent days. It is terrifying the extent to which mainstream journalism has abandoned the objective reporting of complex reality, and turned on many responsible communities across the world wide web, who are actually often well-informed and trying to do their best for their fellow citizens. What instead we have is FAKE NEWS, a story in itself without public significance being outrageously blown up,  and a distraction from the real reasons why all those American people (and may others around the globe) are distressed and angry.
 
Yours faithfully,
 
John Stone (UK and European Editor, Age of Autism)
 
Dear Rosa,
 
On reflection I decided that your article - which was very prejudicial - should not go without comment. After all I had gone to a lot of trouble to document the justified concerns of vaccine critics in the US or anywhere else. At the top of the list I would point to agency capture, so the public not only have to pay for the products they have to receive them often compulsorily (whatever happened to informed consent?): more and more of them every year. And, of course, if something goes wrong people are subject to bullying, opprobrium and denial (not least from media sources: intimidating citizens is a very effective way of influencing data). 
 
I also documented the catastrophic rise in autism (now minimally 4.7% in Belfast schools for example, nearly 300 new cases per year per borough in SW London)). Autism goes on rising year after year everywhere - if it is ever reported, it is a resource problem, not like the iceberg floating towards us for which there is no official explanation available. In many cases I have had to calculate the rates from other data because public bodies are shirking the issue. Meanwhile, the mainstream media just seems to cover up for failed government policies, instead of investigating them and calling them to account. The press has completely abandoned its historic role. I sent you a recent compilation of 150 Pubmed listed articles which implicate vaccines in the rise of autism: doctors and academics are laying their careers on the line to  publish publicly unpalatable facts but the mainstream media is silent, even denies this is happening.
 
Rather than all the allegedly bad people of Trump's America this is the sort of thing that real journalism should be about (it is what we used to call  sleaze). The de-restriction of pharmaceutical advertising in the USA is not something I dreamt up (and an issue which would concern Trump not at all) it means that the increasing beleaguered mainstream media is all too likely to represent only the interests of its advertisers. In the UK there are other means of corporate and government influence, not least PR agencies like SenseAboutScience and Science Media Centre. In particular, I wonder why David Robert Grimes, a physicist from SAS, is so often quoted on these issues? Not being a medical doctor he has no professional responsibility for what he says. On the other hand, as a responsible parent advocate I have to master the detail, make absolutely sure I know what I am talking about.
 
I posed the question whether Wakefield had had fair treatment, and produced chapter and verse on why he did not - which you seem to have completely ignored. The central  issue of the Legal Aid Board protocol at the GMC which Sir John Mitting dismissed was laid collectively against all three doctors, and was simple wrong. It was historically wrong, and Mitting's findings were unappealed, though very inconvenient to the official narrative. To write a proper article about Wakefield you need to address this, and you manifestly have not: re-cycling shibboleths and appeals to authority I am afraid fail the standard.One thing which will absolutely ensure the unsafety of health programmes, will be the public and professional hounding of anybody and everybody who criticises them.

Chinese Vaccine Scandal Infuriates Parents. News Actually Reported!

Breaking newsChina may be Communist. But it seems they may not be Pharmunist, like the USA....  This article would never run in a major American media outlet.  Even our social media like Facebook and Twitter have been tamping down "fake" read egregious to profits news regarding vaccine safety. We've seen this loud and clear at AofA.  Read us - link us - support us - it's getting harder and harder to be heard.  Thanks. KIM

BEIJING: A scandal over faulty vaccines in China has sparked anger on social media, underscoring the difficulties regulators face in rebuilding trust after years of food and drug safety controversies.

The incident is a major blow for Beijing, which has been trying to push domestically made vaccines and for China's drug regulator, which has been struggling to clean up the world's second biggest drug industry.

Worried parents trying to ascertain if their children had been administered faulty vaccines led to the topic becoming the second most watched at the weekend on the Twitter-like Weibo, with details widely shared on the WeChat messaging app.

"If the state does not protect its citizens, how can we love our country?" asked one Weibo user, while another lamented, "Looking at the news, I don't dare to have an injection."

The scandal erupted a week ago, after major vaccine maker Changsheng Biotechnology Co Ltd was found to have violated standards in making rabies vaccine for humans.

Former Philippine President Aquino Restricted from Leaving Country Due to Vaccine Injury Controversy

DengvaxiaNote:  Can you imagine ANYthing like this in America, where politicians and corporate executives have immunity from just about EVERY crime?   Here in the good ole USA, HHS has not followed up on 30 years of vaccine safety mandates (thanks, RM.) T-H-I-R-T-Y  Y-E-A-R-S.  RFK, Jr. Proves HHS is in Violation of the “Mandate for Safer Childhood Vaccines” as Stipulated in the Vaccine Injury Compensation Act

When Congress granted economic immunity to pharmaceutical companies in 1986 for vaccine injury, Congress recognized it eviscerated the economic incentive for pharmaceutical companies to create safe vaccines or make existing ones safer. Congress therefore placed the responsibility and burden for vaccine safety directly and virtually entirely on the shoulders and in the hands of the Secretary of HHS. This requirement is codified at 42 USC 300aa-27 (note that the 1986 Act is very short and codified in 42 USC 300aa-1 through 300aa-34) which is the section underpinning the entire mandate for safe and safer vaccines in this country – this section is literally entitled “Mandate for safer childhood vaccines.” This section first lists the HHS Secretary’s obligation to assure vaccine safety and then requires the HHS Secretary to submit a report to Congress every two years detailing what improvements in vaccine safety were made in the preceding two years. But, amazingly, as seen from the so ordered stipulation, it does not appear that HHS has ever, not even once, submitted a bi-annual reported to Congress as required by 42 USC 300aa-27 listing what improvements it has made to vaccine safety. This speaks volumes to the lack of seriousness by which vaccine safety is treated at HHS and heightens the concern that HHS doesn’t have a clue as to the actual safety profile of the now 29 doses, and growing, of vaccines given by one year of age.

Ronald Reagan. George Bush. Bill Clinton. George W. Bush. Barack Obama. And now Donald Trump. Dereliction of duty to our nation. Treason on behalf of the pharmaceutical/CDC cabal.  They should all stand in front of this nation, of every child, every grave, and every family of every child who has died, been injured, compensated, DENIED compensation for a vaccine injury and beg for forgiveness. On their way to prison. Or hell, if deceased. Invite Julie Gerberding as well - she, the former CDC chief who became Wealthy Goddess of All things Vaccine at MERCK the moment the gate opened after she left CDC.

MANILA, Philippines — Former president Benigno Aquino III may not leave the country amid a string of criminal charges he is facing over the controversial Dengvaxia vaccine, the Department of Justice (DOJ) said yesterday.

Justice Secretary Menardo Guevarra revealed that the lookout bulletin order (LBO) issued against Aquino, former health secretary Janette Garin and former budget secretary Florencio Abad Jr. stays as the DOJ has yet to resolve the charges of multiple homicide and physical injuries through negligence under the Revised Penal Code, malversation of public funds and violations of Republic Act 3019 (Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act) and RA 9184 (Government Procurement Reform Act) filed against them by Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption and Vanguard of the Philippine Constitution Inc. last February.

The DOJ is keeping the LBO, which was issued by former justice secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II in December last year when a key witness surfaced to spill the beans on the P3.5-billion dengue immunization program, also after the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) filed charges of technical malversation of public funds against Aquino, Garin and Abad before the Office of the Ombudsman earlier this week.

Too Many Too Soon: We Were Right as Irish Scientists Find Birth Vaccination Danger Signals

Just imagine the impact of FETAL vaccination  with flu vaccine, Dtap and anything else being pushed into pregnant women who want only ONE THING - a healthy baby.   

We vaccinate(d) because we thought we were protecting our children. Heck, I have the signed "consent" (what a farce) form for my Gianna's birth dose Hep B at Doylestown Hospital in Doylestown, PA.  I hope the nurse that administered that vaccine to her and EVERY NURSE still jabbing babies while wiping vernix off their bodies reads this article and then prays to God for forgiveness.  There's no pleading Too many too soonignorance.

Irish scientists find distinct immune system in newborn babies

Irish scientists have discovered a distinct immune response system in newborn babies, which could lead to a reduction in the age at which vaccines can be first administered and in the need for “multiple booster” shots.

Researchers from TCD School of Medicine and the National Children’s Research Centre (NCRC), attached to Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin, have identified what they describe as “a class of danger signals” that are highly efficient at triggering an immune response in young infants.

As infection remains the most common cause of death in early life, vaccination is by far the most effective intervention at preventing infectious disease. Newborn babies (neonates), however, do not respond optimally to most vaccines due to their immature immune system, explained researcher Dr Sarah Doyle of the NCRC.


"Ginger's List" of Ignored Research Showing How Vaccines Cause Autism Tops 150 Papers

Fireworks-5120x2880-new-year-hd-5k-7289 (1)by Ginger Taylor MS, about Ginger Taylor  MS

The Age of Autism, represented here by Ginger Taylor MS, at the behest of Ginger Taylor MS, is proud to honor Ginger Taylor MS on her stunning accomplishment of the discovery of 150 published papers that show both that vaccines can cause autism, and how they cause autism.  Papers that the combined resources of the World Health Organization, every government health organization in existence and the entire world wide medical health establishment was not able to find.  

When contacted for comment on her astonishing work, Ginger Taylor MS, in her great humility toward her task of global illumination, said that she owed a bit of the credit to David Kirby for starting her off with 18 papers on mercury in 2007, a smidge to JB Handley for pointing out the most recent paper from China on Hepatitis B vaccine, and should probably not forget to mention the "little people" whose families have been harmed by vaccines for constantly sending her new research "here and there" as soon as it was published, but that she would be remiss in not talking the vast majority of the credit for herself.  

"I should also probably thank my parents for teaching me to read, because that was a huge tool that I used for the creation of this one of a kind tome, but I alone had to brave the dangerous journey through exotic and deadly lands like Pubmed and Google Alerts, to find these rare gems.  It's not like any old person with a high school education could do it.  Or even tens of thousands of MDs or PhDs.  I and I alone, armed with zero dollars in government research funds, had the mind, tenacity and reckless abandon to throw myself into the lions den thusly, to pluck these completely unknown bits of research from the jaws of death and complete obscurity!"  She then placed her phone on her lap, announced that she was awaiting a call from "those Nobel Prize people", whipped back her own blond mane, threw her face to the sky, and roared like the King of the Jungle himself. (Admittedly, it was a little awkward.)

The US Centers for Disease Control and prevention, responding to our request for comment on Mrs. Taylor MS's earth shattering announcement, replied, "Who?  Vaccines don't cause autism.  There's no research to support that claim."

UPDATE: I have uploaded the current list in PDF form, as requested, here.


Written Evidence on Vaccination from John Stone on Data.Parliament.UK

ParliamentBelow is a published "written evidence" from AofA's John Stone at data.parliament.uk.

Data.parliament (DDP) is a platform that enables us to share our data both within and outside of Parliament. The aim of data.parliament is to ensure that our data is both accessible and useable. Most of the data is already public, but this project is about ensuring that it is exposed in a better and richer way. It’s a big project, and the service will continue to develop and grow after the platform has launched.  In time, we hope that all published Parliamentary information will be available on DDP.

Written evidence from John Stone (Age of Autism)

[1] Vaccines are mentioned as one strategy against antimicrobial resistance (1) and this submission seeks to caution against the idea of substituting one kind of over-medication with another (Age of Autism is an on-line newspaper concerned with the publicly unaccounted adverse effects of vaccination).

[2] In the United Kingdom, an infant already receives by 12 months on the routine schedule (2):-

DTaP, Polio, HiB, HepB+Rotavirus+13 Strain Pneumococcal+MenB (8 weeks)

DTaP, Polio, HiB, HepB+Rotavirus (12 weeks)

DTaP, Polio, HiB,HepB+13 Strain Preumococcal+MenB (16 weeks)

13 Strain Pneumococcal+MMR+HiB, MenC

[3] In 2011 Miller and Goldman reported (3):

“The infant mortality rate (IMR) is one of the most important indicators of the socio-economic well-being and public health conditions of a country. The US childhood immunization schedule specifies 26 vaccine doses for infants aged less than 1 year—the most in the world—yet 33 nations have lower IMRs. Using linear regression, the immunization schedules of these 34 nations were examined and a correlation coefficient of r = 0.70 (p < 0.0001) was found between IMRs and the number of vaccine doses routinely given to infants. Nations were also grouped into five different vaccine dose ranges: 12–14, 15–17, 18–20, 21–23, and 24–26. The mean IMRs of all nations within each group were then calculated. Linear regression analysis of unweighted mean IMRs showed a high statistically significant correlation between increasing number of vaccine doses and increasing infant mortality rates, with r = 0.992 (p = 0.0009). Using the Tukey-Kramer test, statistically significant differences in mean IMRs were found between nations giving 12–14 vaccine doses and those giving 21–23, and 24–26 doses. A closer inspection of correlations between vaccine doses, biochemical or synergistic toxicity, and IMRs is essential.”

Vaccinegate: Five Out Seven Analyzed Products Non-Compliant With Biological Guidelines

image from www.corvelva.itPRESS RELEASE

VACCINEGATE? 5 of 7 vaccines analyzed are not compliant
Metagenomics analysis report on vaccine samples

The Corvelva Association, an historic Italian association that supports vaccine freedom, has commissioned the analysis of biological contamination in some batches of vaccines currently commercialized in Italy, to a highly qualified scientific institute specialized in sequencing the genetic material.

The results are alarming, on 7 types of vaccines, as many as 5 do not conform to the guidelines for the quantity of biological material, DNA or foreign RNA of human or animal origin, or for the presence of genetic mutations of the antigens!!!

✔ Priorix Tetra, GlaxoSmithKline - NOT CONFORMING
✔ Infanrix hexa, GlaxoSmithKline - NOT CONFORMING
✔ Measles live vaccine B.P., Poonawalla Group - NOT CONFORMING
✔ PolioInfanrix, GlaxoSmithKline - NOT CONFORMING
✔ Vivotif, PaxVax - NOT CONFORMING

These results throw a shadow on the quality of the checks carried out by the controllers bodies.

We can not yet release the original documentation and communicate the names of the laboratories, that are internationally certified, because we are completing further investigations to understand other aspects that are decisive for safety and effectiveness. Vaccines such as Infanrix hexa and PolioInfanrix have the viral DNA of the poliovirus in quantities below the limits of detection of both standard instruments and the sensitivity of deep sequencing, this raises the following questions: is the antigen really present? those vaccines immunize? These questions and many others will be answered in the second line of our research.
In Italy already in the coming days will be presented complaints to the competent authorities and we will keep you updated.

Heart-Breaking News: MMR Vaccine Seized in Samoa After 2 Deaths

Samoa ministry of health
Source: SamoaPlanet.com

No note of the manufacturer.  Our condolences to the families of these children. A tragedy. 

9 July, 2018. Samoa – The Ministry of Health is seizing all MMR vaccines throughout the country.

The news was announced at a press conference by the CEO for the Ministry of Health, Dr Take Naseri. It follows the sudden deaths of two young children both aged 1 years old from Savaii who according to Tala Fou News, died after being vaccinated on Friday the 6th of July at Safotu Hospital in Savaii.

The deaths are also being investigated by police.MMR vaccines seized nationwide

Samoa recalls MMR vaccine after two deaths

Samoa's health officials have issued an immediate recall of a vaccination for rubella, measles and mumps, after two babies died just hours after being vaccinated.

The Director General of Health Leausa Dr Take Naseri says different nurses administered the vaccine to the infants at a hospital in Safotu on Savaii.

He says the infants were the first to get the MMR vaccine and testing is now underway to see if it was responsible for the deaths, "so now immediate action to recall all [of them] - we've ceased and sent out a directive to stop and cease all vaccinations of the children with the MMR."

The families of the two children have asked the police to investigate the deaths.

 


The Thoughts of Chairman Aaronovitch

AaronovitchBy John Stone

David Aaronovitch, recent chair of Index on Censorship, Orwell prize winner and Murdoch poodle (or possibly running dog) writing in the London Times wants to stop people saying things he does not like - so perhaps he will not like this article.

The problem with vaccines, is the more you are not allowed to talk about them the more dangerous they will certainly get. You can be fed lots of reassuring information by the surrogates of the people who manufacture them (the health agencies and mainstream journalists) but until ordinary citizens are listened to you will simply be engaged in an ugly strategy of social repression. It is not good enough to tell people when they have been hurt - or worse when their beloved children have been - that the agencies who did the hurting deny it. But for Aaronovitch the products are not mere fallible industrial products, they are simply beyond public criticism. 

If anybody is expressing unreasonable faith it is he. If he thinks they are safe, what body of science is he citing, and where are the independent agencies? In the UK the licensing agencies are funded by the industry (the MHRA 100%, the EMA 89%), the chair of the vaccine recommendation committee (the JCVI) is director Oxford Vaccine Group which is commercially involved in developing many of the vaccines the committee recommends. These are all perfectly acceptable arrangements to a mainstream media in advanced decline, and no doubt to our lion of free speech.

In his latest article ‘Conspiracy theorists make monkeys of us all’ (The Times 5 July 2018)  Aaronovitch employs all the old bad songs: people who doubt vaccine safety are unscientific and equivalent to those who doubt the theory of evolution; people who doubt vaccine safety are unpleasant right-wing types; people who opposed vaccine mandates in Italy (which incidentally we do not have in the United Kingdom) have caused measles to rise – when he might have focussed on government-pharmaceutical sleaze as the prime cause of their mistrust: the meeting at which Obama put Italian Health Minister Beatrice Lorenzin in charge of global vaccine strategy, the secret deals she signed with GlaxoSmithKline. They probably also knew that she had made up fairy stories about 270 measles deaths among children in London. This was what last year the tens of thousands of people who filled the streets in Italy knew about, unreported by the Italian and global mainstream media, unreported almost certainly in the London Times – just to make them look like idiots. In these circumstances conspiracy was scarcely a theory. Oh yes, and to cap it all they are all “conspiracy theorists”.

Jackboots Back Across Europe: Closing Down The World Wide Web

image from www.google.co.uk

 By John Stone

Largely unreported in the mainstream media the European Parliament this week, under the guidance of the European Commission, are effectively moving to shut down the web using an extension of copyright law. While it is disguised as a protection of intellectual property if it eventuates clauses 11 and 13 will be a devastating blow to intellectual freedom, preventing the use of web links on sites, and shutting them down if they are used. The web as a tool of freedom from oligarchies and corporate behemoths will be completely crippled. European readers should complain urgently to their representatives at the Parliament before it is too late through this website:

https://saveyourinternet.eu

PLEASE ALSO HELP TO CIRCULATE

I wrote individually to British members:

Dear ___,

I am writing ahead of the plenary session on 4 July to protest articles 11 and 13 of the EU's Copyright Reform Proposal. I am all in favour of artists receiving fair remuneration but these clauses are clearly intended to restrict sharing public interest data, making many sites that have always operated with due respect and caution for other people's rights virtually inoperable.

I fear MEPs are asleep or they are working on behalf of dark forces. They should remember that they were not elected by behemoth corporations, but ordinary citizens. 

Sincerely,

John Stone

Celebrations were inevitably short lived over the exoneration of Prof Henri Joyeux, the popular medic who had dared to criticize France's sacred vaccination program on a principled and informed basis. The judicial decision was immediately appealed by France's 'Order of Physicians'.

Five Years Since the Suspension of Proactive Recommendation of the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccine in Japan

Japanese_Number_5STATEMENT

Five Years Since the Suspension of Proactive Recommendation of the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccine in Japan

June 14, 2018

National Plaintiffs Association for the HPV Vaccines Lawsuits in Japan

Representative Nanami Sakai

National Attorneys Association for the HPV Vaccines Lawsuits in Japan

Joint Representative Masumi Minaguchi

Joint Representative Yoshiaki Yamanishi

It has been five years since the Japanese Government halted proactive recommendation of the HPV vaccine on June 14, 2013, claiming that it could not provide the public with enough information. Compared to other routine vaccinations, an average of over seven times the number of serious adverse effects per one million HPV vaccinations have been reported, and the number of disability certifications by the Adverse Drug Reaction Relief System is almost ten times higher. The government has put in place research groups and selected cooperating medical institutions for the HPV vaccine, but measures to prevent adverse effects and to provide treatment have yet to be established. The public cannot use the HPV vaccine with peace of mind.

The government officially endorsed the HPV vaccine nine years ago, and many of the victims who were junior or high school students at the time of their HPV vaccination have now grown into adults. However, they have received no effective medical treatment until now and suffer from serious adverse effects, not only pain spreading all over their bodies and involuntary movements, but perceptual disorders, impaired mobility, sleep disruption, impaired memory, and learning disabilities. While their classmates became working adults, they have been incapable of fully attending classes and have abandoned their plans for higher education or getting a job. With no medical institutions able to give them sufficient treatment, they see no bright future and live under a shadow of uncertainty as they struggle to cope with agonizing symptoms every day.

Similar cases have been also reported overseas. Groups of victims from five countries, UK, Spain, Ireland, Colombia and Japan, participated in an international symposium held in Tokyo in March this year, and published a Joint Statement in April, calling for the necessity of a fact-finding investigation, development of treatment methods, and support for daily life, education and employment.

Vaccine Witch Hunts on the Rise: An AHRP Report

AHRPExcerpted from the Alliance for Human Research Protection. AHRP.


Vaccine Witch Hunts on the Rise

Two outrageous examples of institutional abuse aimed at silencing a mother & a lawyer to protect vaccine uptake.

  1. The bizarre case of retaliation against a mother whose 22-month old baby was a victim of medical negligence

Texas officials are riding roughshod against Anita Vasquez, the mother of Aniya Blu Vasquez, a 22-month toddler who was the victim of a medical negligence. A doctor had mistakenly injected the baby with the human papillomavirus vaccine (HPV) vaccine that was meant for her 14 year-old brother.

When Merck launched its HPV vaccine, Gardasil® in 2008, Governor Rick Perry issued an order mandating the vaccine on girls. However,  a public outcry led the legislature overturned his order.] Ten years later, officials of the Texas Department of “Family and Protective Services” seek to terminate the mother’s parental rights – the most sacred relationship among humans and mammals alike. The reason?

stead of taking the mother’s observations seriously, state-employed doctors and social workers declared her guilty of Munchausen by proxy — an accusation akin to declaring someone a witch! The accused has a no-win defense.

The state seeks the draconian punishment – loss of parental rights to her daughter – because she dared complain that her daughter has suffered adverse health effects following the unapproved exposure of a 22-month old toddler to the hazards associated with Merck’s Gardasil 9 vaccine.

Top Italian Scientist Assaulted and Threatened Over Vaccines: A Letter from Stefano Montanari

image from blogger.cq24.itAge of Autism publishes a letter from scientist Stefano Montanari, pictured with his wife Antonietta Gatti, have become caught at the center of a storm about vaccine safety over their undisputed discovery of microscopic and nano-particles in the routine vaccine supply. With the new Italian health minister, Giulia Grillo of 5 Star Movement, trying to renege on an election commitment to reverse mandate legislation for 10 vaccines, Northern League leader, Matteo Salvini - who has praised Montanari and Gatti - is coming under pressure from political forces and news media to back down. Meanwhile, no one will report the violence against Montanari. He writes out of desperation in a "letter to the US":

No Italian newspaper has spared a line to report what happened on the evening of 9 June in Rome. Maybe it's all within the most perfect normality.

I have been giving public lectures on scientific topics for many years, mainly, at least in the latest two decades, concerning the results of the research I carry out with my wife, Dr. Antonietta Gatti.

16 years ago, using an electron-microscopy method based on two European research projects, we began to analyze vaccines and, to date, we have examined 35 different types of those drugs, 10 of which are now mandatory in Italy. The results are well-known: all the samples were found to be polluted by micro- and nanoparticles, none of them compatible with the human organism.

Basta meme
ENOUGH!

 

Given the huge amount of money involved in vaccines, everything was tried to stop us: from preventing the continuation of a research on acute myeloid leukemia that had produced results that can prove very useful both for diagnosis and therapy, to the seizure of our electron microscope to that of our computers. All illegal, to be sure, but who cares?

Despite the many criticisms received, I agreed to give a lecture at the headquarters of a far-right party called Casa Pound. The name is in honor of the American fascist poet [Ezra Pound]. Let me be clear: I have never cared about the political, religious, sexual or any other kind of opinion and preference expressed by the people I talk to. I speak of science and medicine, and all the rest is neither of my competence nor of my interest. So, for me there was nothing anomalous to address an audience of fascists.

After completing the conference in spite of an unusually poor organization, I came out of the hall greeted by several people who wanted to shake my hand and, some of them, show me their children injured by vaccination. Once out on the street, a dozen people were waiting for me for the same reason. In short, everything in the most absolute normality.

While I was cordially talking with these people, suddenly, for no apparent reason, a gentleman came up behind me shouting "Don’t dare raise your voice!" I turned my head and, in a fraction of a second, unexpectedly, he hit me with a violent punch between my ear and my cheekbone. For a moment I lost my senses and I was supported by those around me, while the character was moving away, crossing my wife who, meanwhile, was coming out on the sidewalk. To her, that gentleman shouted a death threat.

Neither my wife nor I let ourselves be intimidated but we can read the writing on the wall.

After years of persecution, after clumsy and continuous attempts to attack our scientific credibility without putting any scientific arguments against our own, after having deprived us of the indispensable tools for our work, after the illegal seizure of our computers containing the data of our research, here is the physical attack. Undoubtedly something rough but certainly understandable by anyone.

New Study Links Lowered Probability of Pregnancy in Females 25 - 29 to HPV Vaccination

Empty cribHere is an addendum to this post from the study author, Gayle Delong, PhD:

In connection with my paper, the question has been raised: Given that married women who had the HPV shot were less likely to conceive than those who did not receive the shot, were the former more likely to use birth control than the latter? My result that married women who received the shot were less likely to conceive could be explained if those women were more actively trying to prevent pregnancy than married women who did not receive the shot.

The three questions on NHANES that provide insights into contraception are 1) SXQ251: In the past 12 months, how often had you had sex without a condom? 2) RHD442: Are you taking birth control pills now? 3) RHQ520: Are you now using Depo-Provera or injectables to prevent pregnancy?

I seek to determine whether married women who received the HPV shot are more actively seeking to prevent pregnancy than married women who did not receive the shot. I define “actively seeking to prevent pregnancy” as women who at the time of the interview were using condoms at least half the time or taking the birth control pill or receiving an injectable. I find 51.5% of married women who did not receive the shot and 36.6% of married women who received the shot were actively seeking to prevent pregnancy. The 14.9% difference is statistically significant at the 1% level.

This finding suggests that a greater percentage of married women who received the shot should be conceiving compared with married women who did not receive the shot. However, my original study finds that married women who received the shot are less likely to conceive than married women who did not receive the shot. The finding of my original study is not the result of married women who received the HPV vaccine actively avoiding pregnancy more than women who did not receive the HPV shot. I’m happy to discuss details of my results with researchers who are interested.

A lowered probability of pregnancy in females in the USA aged 25–29 who received a human papilloma vaccine injection

Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health, Part A, DOI: 10.1080/15287394.2018.1477640

ABSTRACT Birth rates in the United States have recently fallen. Birth rates per 1000 females aged 25–29 fell from 118 in 2007 to 105 in 2015. One factor may involve the vaccination against the human papillomavirus (HPV). Shortly after the vaccine was licensed, several reports of recipients experiencing primary ovarian failure emerged. This study analyzed information gathered in National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, which represented 8 million 25-to-29-year-old women residing in the United States between 2007 and 2014. Approximately 60% of women who did not receive the HPV vaccine had been pregnant at least once, whereas only 35% of women who were exposed to the vaccine had conceived. For married women, 75% who did not receive the shot were found to conceive, while only 50% who received the vaccine had ever been pregnant. Using logistic regression to analyze the data, the probability of having been pregnant was estimated for females who received an HPV vaccine compared with females who did not receive the shot. Results suggest that females who received the HPV shot were less likely to have ever been pregnant than women in the same age group who did not receive the shot. If 100% of females in this study had received the HPV vaccine, data suggest the number of women having ever conceived would have fallen by 2 million. Further study into the influence of HPV vaccine on fertility is thus warranted.

New Italian Government Set To Repeal Vaccine Mandates

image from www.rescuepost.comby John Stone

After months of negotiations Italian have finally managed to form a government based on the Five Star Movement and the Northern League both of whom were opposed to vaccine mandates piloted by Beatrice Lorenzin and the previous center left government -  the new Health Minister, Giulia Grillo, is "In favor of vaccines, but against Lorenzin's law". Protests in Italy against mandatory vaccination are set to take place in Italy in two days time (June 3) at at least five venues as part of the International Protest Against Mandatory Vaccination.

As we have seen in recent months elements within the vaccine lobby have indicated a willingness to back off pushing for  mandates and compulsion, trying to trade this in against allowing a serious public discussion about the safety of its products: that of course is the last thing they want. We rather imagine, though, at Age of Autism that the Italian public will have learned rather a lot about the lobby after five years of Lorenzin's machinations. It will also be interesting to see how Grillo, who has a medical degree, deals with the parliamentary commission report on the deaths and illnesses of Italian military personnel. Will this continue to be swept under the rug?

Throat Cancer Foundation Sues United Kingdom National Health Service To End HPV “Vaccine Apartheid”

image from www.google.co.ukBy Eileen Iorio

The Daily Mail recently reported that its long running campaign to end the HPV “vaccine apartheid” may succeed, since the Throat Cancer Foundation filed a High Court case in the UK against the National Health Service (NHS) under the 2010 Equality Act, seeking to add boys to the national HPV vaccine program.

 The Throat Cancer Foundation is a small charity and not a “top cancer charity” as the Daily Mail article claims. In 2017 the charity reported a modest income of £36,418, with expenses of £34,402. The HPV vaccine Gardasil, is not approved or indicated for throat cancer but this seems irrelevant to the campaign.

A few months ago, I wrote an article exposing the enormous conflict the Scottish charity has with regard to its campaign “Jabs For The Boys.” Professor Ian Frazer (pictured), Gardasil’s inventor and a native of Scotland, served on the charity’s clinical and scientific advisory board. Professor Frazer, who is based in Australia, earns royalties on every vaccine sold in the developed world. He has since stepped down from his role at the charity.

 Professor Margaret Stanley, who is a consultant for Merck, the manufacturer of Gardasil, remains on the charity’s advisory board. Professor Stanley is a virologist at the University of Cambridge and was a consultant on a special committee for the JCVI in 2008, when GSK’s HPV vaccine Cervarix was approved for the national school-based program. The UK switched to Gardasil in 2012. Professor Stanley has also worked as a consultant for GSK and has been very involved in promoting both vaccines via speaking engagements and publishing articles. Her presence on the advisory board of the Throat Cancer Foundation indicates high-level industry support and influence.

 Only a handful of countries have a national HPV vaccine program for boys. In the US, uptake for boys is around 27% for the first dose and much less for the complete series. In the UK the vaccine is currently given to almost 90% of girls, and a similar high uptake rate would be expected for boys.

 The JCVI will meet again on June 6th to re-examine the issue of adding boys to the HPV vaccine schedule. With a high court case looming over the heads of the NHS, will this influence their decision? Could filing this case be a lobbying tactic by the Throat Cancer Foundation, and by extension Gardasil’s manufacturer, to influence vaccine policy? A positive outcome from the JCVI will directly benefit former board member Professor Frazer and could indirectly benefit Professor Stanley due to her ties to industry.

 It appears that this conflict of interest is of no consequence but perhaps the Throat Cancer Foundation should disclose all influences by the vaccine’s manufacturer to the British public, before any high court case proceeds, and before a single boy is vaccinated following their campaign.

Jacob Puliyel Questions the WHO, the Serum Institute of India and The Gates Foundation Over the Covert Use of the Talwar Vaccine in Kenya

image from ahrp.orgAge of Autism has twice covered the Oller report which documented the use of a tetanus vaccine secretly laced with a birth control component hCG which was being used in Kenya. While this has been ruthlessly denied by the Kenyan government and across the world's media, there is no doubt that this happened, or that the vaccine was manufactured by Serum Institute of India. Current moves to revive the use of the vaccine in India have come under the scrutiny of Dr Jacob Puliyel, Department of Paediatrics, St Stephen's Hospital, Delhi in India's Sunday Guardian Live. The new version of the vaccine being trialed in India will be conjugated with E Coli not tetanus but the issues remain the same. The concept of the vaccine is that the hCG which is present in relatively small quantities only becomes active as a birth control agent when combined with a foreign protein, hence the WHO and UNICEF claim that the quantity of hCG is insufficient to cause problems with pregnancy is deliberately misleading - tetanus and E Coli are used to adjuvant the hCG as an active ingredient, and that is part of the design of the product.

Ethical questions surround vaccine to reduce fertility

by Jacob Puliyel

The prestigious journal Nature Medicine, in its February issue reported that the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) is to do a clinical trial of a tetanus toxoid vaccine (TT) laced with a pregnancy hormone, human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). It is to be studied on 120 women in India.

This “vaccine” against pregnancy was developed by Dr G.P. Talwar in 1972. The idea is to produce antibodies to the pregnancy hormone, such that the women would not be able to carry a normal pregnancy. Women who were pregnant would abort and those not pregnant would be rendered infertile. The report is indeed disturbing. A few months earlier an article entitled “HCG Found in WHO Tetanus Vaccine in Kenya Raises Concern in the Developing World” was published by Oller and colleagues in the Open Access Library Journal.

The Oller report described young women in Kenya who were vaccinated with this “Talwar vaccine” on the pretext of preventing maternal and neonatal (baby) tetanus. Many of the samples of the tetanus vaccine that tested positive for hCG was sourced from the Serum Institute of India.

Group Demands Release of List of Children Vaccinated with Dengvaxia

DengvaxiaNote: Imagine this feet to the fire scenario in the United States of Pharmerica?

May. 23, 2018
 

DAVAO CITY, Philippines – The children advocacy group Salinlahi on Tuesday hit the Department of Health (DOH) for its refusal to release into public the list of names of children who were vaccinated with Dengvaxia from 2016 until 2017.

In a statement released to the media, Salinlahi Secretary General Eule Rico Bonganay said DOH insisted the issue on privacy when it declined to make public the list of names in a recent deliberation on the budget for Dengvaxia victims in the House of Representatives.

“The DOH should consider that many children were vaccinated without the consent of their parents, it is important to release the master list for the people to effectively monitor their children,” Bonganay pointed out.

He argued that the DOH must not use the privacy issue as it will hinder the people in protecting their children amidst the public health disaster caused by Dengvaxia vaccination.

The House approved during the deliberation the proposed P1.16 billion medical support fund for Dengvaxia victims.

Salinlahi noted down that a total of 87 children who were given at least a dose of Dengavaxia vaccine already died.

Despite the debacle, the government continues to reject proposals of releasing the names of those children vaccinated.

It is also difficult to verify the number of children who are now experiencing health problems after receiving Dengvaxia vaccine sans the master list, Bonganay stressed.

“The Dengvaxia budget deliberation exposes the rotting public health situation in the Philippines, it is enraging that it costs the lives of 87 children and put the lives of about 900,000 children in danger for the government to tackle these issues. With or without Dengvaxia, public health care must be prioritized by the state!” the statement added.  Read more here.

Drugs Controller to come out with vaccine specific regulatory policy

Hyderabad | Saturday, 2018 10:15:04 PM IST
 

The Drugs Controller General of India plans to come out with vaccine specific regulatory policy and a manual for regulatory requirements for commercialization of new drug and on how to conduct clinical trials in India, it was announced on Saturday.

 S. Eswara Reddy, Drugs Controller General of India, Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation said that since pneumococcal is one of the major priority vaccines, they would first come out a policy to facilitate introducing indigenously-produced vaccine.

Speaking at a symposium on 'research and development of vaccines: issues, challenges and opportunities' organized by PC2 Scientific Services, a strategic and technical consulting company in association with Federation of Asian Biotech Associations (FABA) and CR RAO AIMSCS at University of Hyderabad, he listed out the steps being taken by his organisation to promote innovation through transparent system and regulatory changes.

Reddy said they were also in process of making new regulations for conducting clinical trials and new drugs. "We will fix time lines. 30 days will be maximum timeline for giving response to their applications. If response is not received within 30 days, the application will be deemed approved," he said.

He also proposed to conduct symposiums across India and invite research institutions to know their regulatory challenges. The regulator will reach out to research and innovation centres by disseminating information about the regulatory requirements for commercialization of their products.

Reddy underlined the need to communicate to media the facts about the deaths due to clinical trials. He told the gathering that media gives a wrong projection about the number of deaths.

He said media reports that during last 7-8 years, 25,000 patients died during clinical trials in India while the fact is that only 5 percent of these deaths are actually due to clinical trials. "For example, during clinical trials related to cancer, patients who are already in terminal stage die. The death of such patients is not due to clinical trials," he said...(continue reading)


DoJ Summons Aquino Over Dengvaxia Mess

DengvaxiaNote: While we're glad to see repercussions, the fact that children were injured and died means there is no joy in this post. Just an obligation to share with readers.

From the Manila Times:

The Department of Justice (DoJ) has summoned former President Benigno Aquino 3rd and two former Cabinet secretaries to respond to the criminal charges filed against them in connection with the series of deaths and serious illnesses of children inoculated with the controversial anti-dengue Dengvaxia vaccine.

A panel of investigating prosecutors issued a subpoena compelling Aquino and his former aides to appear today, May 15.

The DoJ will conduct its preliminary investigation on the complaint filed by two anti-crime advocacy groups and the families assisted by the Public Attorney’s Office (PAO).

Senior Assistant State Prosecutor Rossane Balauag heads the DoJ panel. The members are Senior Assistant State Prosecutor Hazel Decena Valdez and Assistant State Prosecutors Consuelo Corazon Pazziuagan and Gino Paolo Santiago.

The complaint was filed by Philippine Anti-Corruption Commission Commissioner and Volunteers Against Crime and Corruption (VACC) lawyer Manuelito Luna, and Eligio Mallari of the Vanguard of the Philippine Constitution Inc. Read more here.


Does this Individualism-hierarchy Worldview Make My Yeti Look Fat?

Kim  Dryer bonnetNote: The headline isn't as kooky as this report below. Thanks Nancy H for sending it us to share.   This study says that the push to "educate" us into believing vaccines are as magical as fairy dust, as safe as a mother's hug and as necessary as air via "intervention programs" is a failure.  Well, lah de dah. Imagine that. Bullying fails. We believe what we see with our own two eyes. The study says that we tend to believe "conspiracy theories."  You can't color me and most of my colleagues with this broad "conspiracy nut" brush.    The more injured kids, teens and adults, the more the bubble is bursting on the Vaccines Are God industry.   Do I like this? Not really. It would be very nice if vaccines could safely protect from disease with ZERO harm. So would finding the Giant Pink Sea Snail with Dr. Dolittle.  For the record:

I believe the earth is a sphere. I believe we landed on the moon. I believe that 26 beautiful children and adults were slaughtered 15 miles up the street from me in Sandy Hook, CT. I believe that Mike Nesmith's mother created White Out. OK?  KR

The 'Attitude Roots' Underlying Antivaccination Beliefs

"Many intervention programs work from a deficit model of science communication, presuming that vaccination skeptics lack the ability to access or understand evidence," as explained in a new study published in Health Psychology.3 "However, interventions focusing on evidence and the debunking of vaccine-related myths have proven to be either nonproductive or counterproductive."

Emerging evidence suggests that targeting the underlying bases, the "attitude roots," of these beliefs may prove more effective than information-based strategies.4,5 To that end, the current authors aimed to determine links between antivaccination attitudes and 4 specific attitude roots:

  • Willingness to endorse conspiratorial beliefs
  • Disgust sensitivity toward blood and needles
  • Reactance (in response to perceived threats to one's autonomy or freedom)
  • Individualism-hierarchy worldviews (in contrast to communitarianism/egalitarianism)

The researchers used a data collection company to survey 5323 people (49.9% women) in 24 countries, using various scales to assess these measures.

Analyses revealed that the strongest antivaccination attitudes were found among participants with higher levels of conspiratorial beliefs (correlation coefficient [r], 0.334; P <.001), reactance (r, 0.235; P <.001), and disgust sensitivity (r, 0.201; P <.001). Although individualistic/hierarchical worldview was also associated with stronger antivaccination beliefs, the effect size was small (r, 0.186, P <.001). In addition, education and sex were not significantly linked to vaccination attitudes, whereas younger participants and more conservative participants had stronger antivaccination attitudes.

From a motivated reasoning perspective, the "goal of science communication is to align with people's underlying fears, ideologies and identities, thus reducing people's motivation to reject the science," the authors wrote. "If the motivation to reject the science is reduced, then people should become more willing to embrace the evidence on its merits."

Abstract

Background

Benefits using the 13-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV13) in adults are controversial. This study investigated clinical effectiveness of PCV13 vaccination in preventing hospitalisation from pneumonia among middle-aged and older adults.

Methods

Population-based cohort study involving 2,025,730 individuals ≥50 years in Catalonia, Spain, who were prospectively followed from 01/01/2015 to 31/12/2015. Primary outcomes were hospitalisation for pneumococcal or all-cause pneumonia and death from any cause. Cox regression models were used to evaluate the association between PCV13 vaccination and the risk of each outcome, adjusting for age, sex and major comorbidities/underlying risk conditions.

Results

Cohort members were observed for a total of 1,990,701 person-years, of which 6912 person-years were PCV13 vaccinated. Overall, crude incidence rates (per 100,000 person-years) were 82.8 (95% confidence interval [CI]: 77.7–88.1) for pneumococcal pneumonia, 637.9 (95% CI: 599.0–678.7) for all-cause pneumonia and 2367.2 (95% CI: 2222.8–2518.7) for all-cause death. After multivariable adjustments we found that the PCV13 vaccination did not alter significantly the risk of pneumococcal pneumonia (multivariable-adjusted hazard ratio [mHR]: 1.17; 95% CI: 0.75–1.83; p = 0.493) and all-cause death (mHR: 1.07; 95% CI: 0.97–1.18; p = 0.190), although it remained significantly associated with an increased risk of all-cause pneumonia (mHR: 1.69; 95% CI: 1.48–1.94; p < 0.001). In stratified analyses focused on middle-aged or elderly persons and immunocompromised or immunocompetent subjects, PCV13 vaccination did not appear effective either.

Conclusion

Our data does not support clinical benefits of PCV13 vaccination against pneumonia among adults in Catalonia. It must be closely monitored in future studies involving more vaccinated person-time at-observation.

15 Deliberately Wasted Years - Revisiting "Autism in the United States: a Perspective"

image from vaccinechoicecanada.comBy F Edward Yazbak

Following the release by the Centers for Disease Control figures for autism in schools Age of Autism returns with the permission of Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons to an article Ed Yazbak  wrote in 2003. Last week the CDC published a rate of 1 in 59, which has suspiciously only been updated to 2014 and which contrasts with figure of 1 in 36 for 2016 published in a different survey last December, while a figure of 1 in 45 had already published for 2014. Back in 2003 Yazbak reporting against the steeply rising trend of that time excoriated the CDC for specious arguments, negligence and unaccountability. Nothing has changed except today the scale of the problem has become many times worse. Otherwise, the excuses and obfuscations remain the same. We might ask if there were problems of measuring the data then, why are they if anything even more inept and vague now?

 

Autism in the United States: a Perspective

F. Edward Yazbak,M.D., F.A.A.P.

ABSTRACT 

Once rare, autism has reached epidemic proportions in the United States. The increase cannot be attributed to changes in diagnostic criteria, which have actually become more restrictive. Already a heavy burden on educational facilities, the increasing number of patients afflicted with this serious disability will have an enormous effect on the economy as the affected children reach adulthood. Studies of all possible causes of the epidemic are urgently needed. To date, studies of a potential relationship to childhood vaccines have been limited and flawed. 
 
The important historical observation about autism is that it was unknown in ancient cultures, or even in medieval times, and that it just “appeared” some 60 years ago. 
 
HISTORICAL BACKGROUND
 
Leo Kanner, while at Johns Hopkins, was first to describe autism in 1943. His article described 11 children who had an apparently rare syndrome of “extreme autistic aloneness.” Because these children’s symptoms started early, Kanner’s Syndrome was also known as “infantile autism.” In 1944, HansAsperger also described a group of children with similar symptoms who were “highly recognizable.” In the same year, Bruno Bettelheim theorized that children developed autism because their “refrigerator mothers” raised them in a non-stimulating environment, with resulting damage to their social, language and general development. Bettelheim’s credentials were questionable, and his theory has been discredited. 
 
Bernard Rimland, Ph.D., founder of the Autism Society of America and founding president of the Autism Research Institute (ARI), has thoroughly analyzed the ARI database of more than 30,000 entries and reported two clear trends: 
 
First, the incidence of autism has increased remarkably, becoming “an explosion” in recent years and second, a distinct shift in the time of onset of autistic symptoms has become evident. “Late onset autism (starting in the second year) was almost unheard of in the 1950s, ’60s, and ’70s; today such cases outnumber early onset cases five to one.” 
 
Parents in increasing numbers are reporting similar stories. A child, most often a boy who is developmentally, socially, and verbally on par for his age, suddenly stops acquiring new words Autistic Disturbances of Affective Contact and skills in the second year of life and then regresses, losing speech, cognitive abilities, and social dexterity. Children in this group are said to have regressive autism. Further, overwhelmed parents may drift apart, and siblings’ stress may be manifested as behavior problems. 
 
Suggesting that a sudden and exponential increase in autistic disorders is not real, and results only from better diagnosis, amounts to denial. Similarly, though some affected children have Fragile-X Syndrome or a family history of autism, it does not seem reasonable to insist that the present autism outbreak is solely caused by hereditary factors. Genetic disorders have never presented as epidemics, and investing the scant available resources solely in genetic research diverts them from the scientific exploration of more plausible environmental etiological factors.
 

 

 

 


Medwatcher Japan "Joint Statement 2018 for the Victims of HPV Vaccines"

 
image from www.mers.jpJoint Statement 2018 for the Victims of HPV Vaccines 

On behalf of the victims of HPV vaccine damage in the UK, Spain, Ireland, Colombia and Japan, an international symposium; "The Current Status of Worldwide Injuries from the HPV Vaccine" was held in Tokyo on the 24th March, 2018. 

The meeting was convened to clarify the actual conditions of HPV vaccine damage, explore ways to relieve symptoms and promote recovery and discuss measures to support the daily activity of victims. 

When first noted, the symptomatology of HPV vaccine damage was variously described as Complex Regional Pain syndrome (CRPS), Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and Postural Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), but clinical symptoms and the course of damage were soon found to be more complex. One of the main clinical features of the Adverse Events (AE’s), reported after HPV vaccination, is the diversity of symptoms and symptom-development in a multi-layered manner, over an extended period of time. AE’s include complex, multi-system symptoms such as; 

-Systemic pain, including headache, myalgia and arthralgia

-Motor dysfunction, such as paralysis, muscular weakness, involuntary movement and seizures 

-Numbness and sensory disturbance 

-Autonomic symptoms, including dizziness, hypotension, tachycardia and diarrhea 

-Respiratory dysfunction 

-Endocrine disorders, such as menstrual disorders and hypermenorrhea 

-Hypersensitivity to light and sound 

-Psychological symptoms, such as anxiety, hallucinations and suicidal tendencies 

-Sleep disorders, including hypersomnia and narcolepsy 

In many cases, these symptoms impair learning and result in extreme fatigue and decreased motivation, having a negative impact on daily life and routines.

The World Stealth Organization, the Gates Foundation and the Tetanus Vaccine Spiked with a Birth Control Drug in Kenya

image from www.rescuepost.com'The days when health officials could issue advice, based on the very best medical and scientific data, and expect populations to comply, may be fading.' Margaret Chan, WHO Director-General, Report to the 126th Executive Board, 2010.

Age of Autism publishes the abstract of the recent paper by Oller et al reviewing the evidence that the WHO spiked tetanus vaccines in Kenya with a birth control drug it developed, HCG. Predictably the controversy was laid at the door of  "anti-vaxxers"  but it is apparent that this has nothing to do with original context: the Catholic church is not "anti-vaccine" and it seems highly implausible that the testing laboratory signed its own death warrant by detecting something which was not there. The problem would seem to lie with the untrustworthy behavior of  the World Health Organization, its not so hidden agendas, the Gates Foundation and the Kenyan government.

HCG Found in WHO Tetanus Vaccine in Kenya Raises Concern in the Developing World

John W. Oller, Christopher A Shaw, Lucija Tomljenovic, Stephen K. Karanja, Wahome Ngare, Felicia M. Clement, Jamie Ryan Pillette

ABSTRACT

In 1993, WHO announced a “birth-control vaccine” for “family planning”. Published research shows that by 1976 WHO researchers had conjugated tetanus toxoid (TT) with human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) producing a “birth-control” vaccine. Conjugating TT with hCG causes pregnancy hormones to be attacked by the immune system. Expected results are abortions in females already pregnant and/or infertility in recipients not yet impregnated. Repeated inoculations prolong infertility. Currently WHO researchers are working on more potent anti-fertility vaccines using recombinant DNA. WHO publications show a long-range purpose to reduce population growth in unstable “less developed countries”. By November 1993 Catholic publications appeared saying an abortifacient vaccine was being used as a tetanus prophylactic. In November 2014, the Catholic Church asserted that such a program was underway in Kenya. Three independent Nairobi accredited biochemistry laboratories tested samples from vials of the WHO tetanus vaccine being used in March 2014 and found hCG where none should be present. In October 2014, 6 additional vials were obtained by Catholic doctors and were tested in 6 accredited laboratories. Again, hCG was found in half the samples. Subsequently, Nairobi’s AgriQ Quest laboratory, in two sets of analyses, again found hCG in the same vaccine vials that tested positive earlier but found no hCG in 52 samples alleged by the WHO to be vials of the vaccine used in the Kenya campaign 40 with the same identifying batch numbers as the vials that tested positive for hCG. Given that hCG was found in at least half the WHO vaccine samples known by the doctors involved in administering the vaccines to have been used in Kenya, our opinion is that the Kenya “anti-tetanus” campaign was reasonably called into question by the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association as a front for population growth reduction.
