The vaccination question is a hotly debated topic, even in the natural health community. It doesn’t help when vaccine companies have blatant conflicts of interest and the studies supporting their safety may be fraudulent!

What we all can agree upon is the need to keep crony capitalism out of it, to keep information clear, unambiguous, and uncensored, and to allow people to make informed choices for themselves and their families. As we noted last year, there is an increasing tendency for immunization mandates to become a financial joint venture of the vaccine manufacturer and the government. The government is providing much of the funding manufacturers need to build facilities. So the government, which is supposed to regulate vaccine makers, becomes a full financial and operating partner with the companies they’re regulating! The government then turns around and orders us to be vaccinated or be ineligible for school—or in some cases go to jail!

As it stands now, the government gives patent protection and FDA approvals to pharmaceutical companies and thus creates medical monopolies. The government also exempts vaccine makers from legal liability. But when in addition the government invests in the business itself and partners with private companies, then adds the threat of jail for consumer non-compliance, we have a completely out-of-control situation.

Many parents are concerned that some vaccines are unsafe because they may contain harmful ingredients like mercury or aluminum. Others believe the overloading of a young immune system with so many vaccines at once causes genetic changes. Some generally support vaccinations but wish there were more scientific clarity.

What is incontrovertible is that the vaccine industry is controlled and manipulated by Big Pharma. Drug companies are often able to fast-track vaccines through the FDA approval process without proper controls. And in the tight circle of scientists who work on vaccines, conflicts of interest are commonplace. Rep. Dan Burton (R–IN) says that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention “routinely allows scientists with blatant conflicts of interest to serve on intellectual advisory committees that make recommendations on new vaccines,” even though they have “interests in the products and companies for which they are supposed to be providing unbiased oversight.”

This cozy relationship of government with the drug companies may be why the CDC is now recommending a cocktail of over ten different vaccines—adding up to more than 35 doses—for children under the age of 6.

One of the hot-button issues is the MMR vaccine—for measles, mumps, and rubella—and possible links of the vaccine to autism. The Journal of Immunotoxicology last month published an article by Helen Ratajczak, a former senior scientist at a pharmaceutical firm. Ratajczak did what nobody else apparently has bothered to do: she reviewed the body of published science since autism was first described in 1943. Not just one theory suggested by research—such as the role of MMR shots, or the mercury preservative thimerosal—but all of them.

Ratajczak’s article states, in part, that “Documented causes of autism include genetic mutations and/or deletions, viral infections, and encephalitis [brain damage] following vaccination.” The article goes on to discuss many potential vaccine-related culprits, including the increasing number of vaccines given in a short period of time—with the body’s immune system being thrown out of balance.

Ratajczak also looks at a factor that hasn’t been widely discussed: human DNA contained in vaccines. Ratajczak reports that about the same time vaccine makers took mercury (thimerosal) out of most vaccines—with the exception of flu shots, which still widely contain thimerosal—they began making some vaccines using human tissue. Ratajczak says human tissue is currently used in 23 vaccines, notes that the increase in autism incidences corresponds to the introduction of human DNA to the MMR vaccine, and suggests the two could be linked. Ratajczak also says an additional increased spike in autism occurred in 1995 when chicken pox vaccine was grown in human fetal tissue.

The problem is not simply that physicians (and the media, and the government) are ignorant of the published research—it’s also that some of the research simply cannot be trusted. For example, many articles in the mainstream media bend over backwards to assure the public that the MMR vaccine is safe, most often pointing to a “definitive study” in Denmark proving that the vaccine did not cause autism. But earlier this month, Poul Thorsen, who administered the CDC grant money for that study, was indicted for fraud and money laundering, falsely claiming that labs had performed work on the study which had not in fact been done. If some of the study’s conclusions were derived from work that was not actually performed, the entire study could be fraudulent.

Last month, former ANH-USA board president Sherri Tenpenny, MD, wrote a scathing article on fraudulent medical research the world over, especially in highly respected medical journals, concluding that “What doctors consider to be ‘usual and customary’ may turn out to be misleading, exaggerated and chillingly, flat-out wrong. Physicians would be well served to take medical publications under advisement rather than believing that just because it has been published, it is accurate and infallible, as gospel engraved in stone.”

As we noted in our Position Paper on Vaccinations, we believe that no one—children, pregnant women, adults, the military, seniors—should be forced to be vaccinated. We believe that in order for individuals to make up their minds about vaccination, they need accurate and impartial information. And we believe that informed choice is the best way to protect the right to decide about vaccination. The vaccine industry is a billion-dollar market, but it has meager proof of its products’ efficacy or safety. Consumers are entitled to know exactly what is going into their bodies—its benefits and risks—and how safe and how effective that substance is. Above all, we have a right to government regulation that is not completely tarnished by crony capitalist deals.

Will India be First Country to Revoke Marketing Licenses for HPV Vaccines?

Will India be First Country to Revoke Marketing Licenses for HPV Vaccines?

Pin It

A petition currently before the Supreme Court of India alleges that the Drugs Controller of India issued licenses for Gardasil and Cervarix without adequate research on safety as directed by the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Health and Family Welfare.

Petition number 558/2012, filed by Kalpana Mehta, Nalini Bhanot and V. Rukmini Rao, seeks to resolve this and several other issues by asking the Supreme Court of India to rescind the licenses for marketing and administration of HPV vaccines, make provisions to identify and treat any girls left with chronic health problems and/or autoimmune disorders after their participation in HPV vaccine trials, blacklist the Program for Appropriate Technology in Health (PATH), and allow no other foreign agencies to have a field presence in India.

Will India be the first country in the world to revoke the marketing licenses for Gardasil and Cervarix? Will the Supreme Court of India move to protect the health and welfare of their young citizens, or the interests of the HPV vaccine manufacturers? Will PATH and similar agencies be banned from operating in India?
Will the victims of adverse reactions to HPV vaccines be located and treated? We can only hope these questions will be answered when the final hearing will take place.

CDC Whistleblower: CDC Covered Up MMR Vaccine Link to Autism in African American Boys

CDC Whistleblower: CDC Covered Up MMR Vaccine Link to Autism in African American Boys

A top research scientist working for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) played a key role in helping Dr. Brian Hooker of the Focus Autism Foundation uncover data manipulation by the CDC that obscured a higher incidence of autism in African-American boys.

“We’ve missed ten years of research because the CDC is so paralyzed right now by anything related to autism. They’re not doing what they should be doing because they’re afraid to look for things that might be associated.” The whistleblower alleges criminal wrongdoing of his supervisors, and he expressed deep regret about his role in helping the CDC hide data.

The Cancer Industry is Too Prosperous to Allow a Cure

The Cancer Industry is Too Prosperous to Allow a Cure

We have lost the war on cancer. At the beginning of the last century, one person in twenty would get cancer. In the 1940s it was one out of every sixteen people. In the 1970s it was one person out of ten. Today one person out of three gets cancer in the course of their life.

The cancer industry is probably the most prosperous business in the United States. In 2014, there will be an estimated 1,665,540 new cancer cases diagnosed and 585,720 cancer deaths in the US. $6 billion of tax-payer funds are cycled through various federal agencies for cancer research, such as the National Cancer Institute (NCI). The NCI states that the medical costs of cancer care are $125 billion, with a projected 39 percent increase to $173 billion by 2020.

The simple fact is that the cancer industry employs too many people and produces too much income to allow a cure to be found. All of the current research on cancer drugs is based on the premise that the cancer market will grow, not shrink.

John Thomas explains to us why the current cancer industry prospers while treating cancer, but cannot afford to cure it.

Is there any more doubt that acetaminophen (Tylenol) is the most dangerous over-the-counter drug ever allowed to be sold legally without a prescription? Consider the facts:

Acetaminophen kills almost 500 people a year due to acute liver failure.
Acetaminophen overdose is the leading cause for calls to Poison Control Centers – more than 100,000/year.
Acetaminophen accounts for more than 56,000 emergency room visits, 2,600 hospitalizations.
Acetaminophen poisoning causes nearly 50% of all acute liver failure in the United States.
Acetaminophen is linked to fatal skin reactions.
Acetaminophen causes a two-fold increased risk of blood cancer.
Acetaminophen can cause an increase in autism, attention deficit with hyperactivity, and asthma when used with vaccines.

And yet, any child can walk into a drug store or grocery store and buy it like candy. Alliance for Natural Health brings us the latest bad news on Tylenol:

A study just published in JAMA Pediatrics finds that Tylenol (acetaminophen) taken by women during their pregnancy may raise the risk of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder) and similar disorders in their children up to 40%—with the risk increasing the more acetaminophen the mother takes.
