Oregon parents reject government vaccine schedule – Pediatrics Journal

Vaccine Syringe2 Oregon parents reject government vaccine schedule – Pediatrics Journal

by Michael Belkin

A new Pediatrics journal study laments the growing number of Oregon parents who refuse to follow the CDC-recommended childhood vaccine schedule. The percentage of parents who opt out of recommended shots rose from 2.5% to 9.5% between 2006 and 2009.

Government health officials and pediatricians are unhappy when parents don’t follow their dictates. It negates the inflated sense of self-worth and grandiose power with which they have been indoctrinated.

The CDC vaccine recommendations that parents are rejecting are made by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) – an obscure body that meets several times per year and rubber-stamps whatever vaccine has been foisted through FDA licensure using shoddy safety studies, typically using other vaccines or vaccine adjuvants as placebos to disguise neurological adverse reactions.

Informed parents are correct in questioning the government’s one-size-fits-all vaccination policy, which has tripled in the past few decades and currently contains 69 doses of 16 vaccines.

Unlike sleepwalking journalists who repeat studies like this verbatim and assume the CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics are trustworthy and reliable sources of vaccine policy, I have actually been to 1) An ACIP meeting in Atlanta. 2) A FDA meeting in Washington DC. 3) Several Institute of Medicine and CDC Meetings in Seattle and 4) Various vaccine godfather presentations in NYC.

In my humble opinion, US vaccine policy making and regulation is fundamentally broken. I am a UC Berkeley Haas Business School graduate and veteran of a Wall Street investment bank who studied Organizational Behavior and have observed corporations like Enron and Lehman Brothers go bankrupt after acting unethically.

What I’ve witnessed in CDC vaccine policy-making resembles the worst of what I’ve observed in corporate scandals. The government gets away with it with vaccines, because there is no legitimate oversight or retribution for pseudo-scientific rule-breaking.

Two cases in point:

1) At the February 1999 ACIP meeting I attended, Chairman Modlin voted for and pushed a vaccine recommendation for a rotavirus vaccine that was subsequently withdrawn from the market (for causing life-threatening bowel obstructions) saying: ‘Obviously a situation where we have to make a judgment in the absence of data, and with a vaccine that has not yet been tested in the group …” (ACIP transcript, pages 102-112).

2) At an April 2000 NY/Cornell Medical School lecture on ‘Vaccines in the New Millennium’ by Samual Katz, when I asked what peer-reviewed, published safety study he used when he was ACIP Chairman to recommend at-birth immunization of newborns with hepatitis B vaccine in 1991 he answered: “you are quite right there was no published peer-reviewed study.”

Parents – look deeply into the process from which the vaccine recommendations pushed on you by pediatricians are made – and you will find a cesspool of conflicts of interest and shoddy safety studies. Is it any surprise that more parents are waking up to the pseudo-science behind CDC vaccine recommendations and opting out?

U.S Congressman: CDC Can’t be Trusted Regarding Vaccine Safety

U.S Congressman: CDC Can’t be Trusted Regarding Vaccine Safety

Congressman Bill Posey’s strong resolve and demands for transparency were evident as he discussed the Center for Disease Control (CDC)’s handling of vaccine safety studies which affect “our most precious resource in our nation – our children.” The 30-minute interview, conducted by vaccine industry watchdog, PhD biochemist Brian Hooker, delves into what Posey called “the incestuous relationship between the public health community and the vaccine makers and public officials.”

The Florida legislator, known as “Mr. Accountabililty,” did not mince words when criticizing current and past CDC officials including indicted fraudster Dr. Poul Thorsen; CDC director turned Merck Vaccine President Dr. Julie Gerberding; and the agency’s current spokesperson regarding autism and vaccines, Dr. Coleen Boyle.

Congressman Posey said, “The CDC can’t be trusted regarding investigating vaccine safety. Huge conflict of interest. I think the CDC should be investigated.”

Merck’s Former Doctor Predicts that Gardasil will Become the Greatest Medical Scandal of All Time

Merck’s Former Doctor Predicts that Gardasil will Become the Greatest Medical Scandal of All Time

In an interview with Dr. Bernard Dalbergue, a former pharmaceutical industry physician with Gardasil manufacturer Merck, he predicts that Gardasil will become the greatest medical scandal of all time. Dr. Dalbergue believes that at some point in time, the evidence will add up to prove that this vaccine, technical and scientific feat that it may be, has absolutely no effect on cervical cancer and that all the very many adverse effects which destroy lives and even kill young girls, serves no other purpose than to generate profit for the manufacturers.

Deadly Medicines and Organized Crime: How big pharma has corrupted healthcare

Deadly Medicines and Organized Crime: How big pharma has corrupted healthcare

An important new book by a recognized medical research expert describes Big Pharma as akin to the Mafia. In an interview conducted by our colleagues at ANH-Europe, Dr. Peter C. Gøtzsche exposes the flaws of the drug approval system, our reliance on dangerous drugs, and the deadly co-dependence between regulators and industry. Dr. Gøtzsche is co-founder of the highly respected Cochrane Collaboration and Cochrane Reviews, a leading journal of evidence-based medicine. The interview is particularly timely now that the FDA has decided to remove restrictions on the dangerous drug Avandia.

Dr. Gøtzsche’s new book, Deadly Medicines and Organised Crime: How Big Pharma Has Corrupted Healthcare, points out that the pharmaceutical industry is allowed to test their own drugs, and thus effectively be their own judge. He calls this a threat to safe medicine and asks for open access to all research data, including raw data, because otherwise, data can be easily suppressed and conclusions manipulated by industry.

Medical Cannabis is a Threat to the Pharmaceutical Industry

Medical Cannabis is a Threat to the Pharmaceutical Industry

Medical marijuana, or cannabis, is legal in 20 US states, where it is used for a variety of medical conditions such as mood disorders, pain disorders, multiple sclerosis, and even cancer. Parents of children with epilepsy met at a news conference to share their dismay that Governor Mark Dayton refuses to legalize medical marijuana. About 85 percent to 95 percent of Americans are in favor of medical cannabis, and nearly 60 percent are in favor of legalizing marijuana. Cannabis shows outstanding promise as a medicinal plant, largely due to its cannabidiol (CBD) content. Cannabinoids interact with your body by way of naturally occurring cannabinoid receptors embedded in cell membranes throughout your body.

Leaders of Teaching Hospitals Have Close Ties to Drug Companies, Study Shows

Leaders of Teaching Hospitals Have Close Ties to Drug Companies, Study Shows

Pharmaceutical company payments to doctors extend far beyond rank-and-file clinicians — and deep into the leadership of America’s teaching hospitals, according to a study published recently in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

A team of researchers at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center examined the boards of the 50 largest drug companies by global sales (excluding three companies that were not publicly traded). The researchers found that 40 percent — 19 companies — had at least one board member who also held a leadership role at an academic medical center. Sixteen of the 17 companies based in the United States had at least one. Several had more than one. All told, the research team found that 41 of the companies’ 2012 board members held leadership positions at academic medical centers. Six of the 41 were pharmaceutical company executives who served on hospital boards of directors or held other leadership posts.

The authors wrote that when academic medical leaders serve on pharmaceutical company boards, it can lead to conflicts not only for individuals, but for the critically important health care institutions they guide.
