The symptoms of Guillain-Barré Syndrome are similar to Polio

Health Impact News Editor

First, let’s start with the indisputable facts: the seasonal flu vaccine causes Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS). Just read the package insert of any commercially available flu vaccine. The manufacturers and government health officials concede this fact. If you go to an emergency room with sudden onset of GBS symptoms, the first question the doctors will ask you is: “Did you recently get the flu shot?”

The only thing that is disputed is: how many people does it affect?

The government’s official response is that the flu vaccination causes two cases of GBS per one million doses. From what I can tell, the rationale for those numbers mainly comes from here, and here. Most flu vaccine manufacturers’ packet inserts, however, are still listing the old numbers at one out of one million.

But are these rates accurate?

I think there is ample evidence to provide reasonable doubt that these rates are accurate, and that they are actually much higher.

The first place to look is in settlements for GBS caused by the flu vaccine in the Vaccine Court. U.S. law prevents you from suing vaccine manufacturers for any damage or deaths due to vaccines. By an Act of Congress in 1986 that was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2011, a special court was set up to handle all vaccine cases. The funds for settlements are paid via a tax on the sales of vaccines.

Just a quick cursory view of cases that are being compensated by this vaccine court shows that the most cases, by far, are cases for GBS and the flu vaccine.

The U.S Court of Federal Claims provides a referral list of attorneys that specialize in representing clients wanting to file claims for vaccine damages. The list is here, and contains 123 attorneys.

One of the law firms representing clients in the Vaccine Court is Maglio, Christopher, & Toale. This law firm has actually listed cases they have settled in the past couple of years here.

From what appears to be some point in 2010 through 2013, they have settled 132 cases:

Out of those 132 cases, 93 were for GBS, and most of those for the flu vaccine, as you can see above. There were 34 settlements in 2011, 35 in 2012, and 15 so far listed in 2013 for GBS. And this is just one law firm!

The law firm has 9 attorneys, but I don’t know if all of them represent vaccine injuries and deaths. This is out of 123 attorneys listed on the U.S Court of Federal Claims website, which is not an exhaustive list. We could not find other law firms providing the kinds of stats that Maglio, Christopher, & Toale did on their website.

Another place to find clues regarding the rate of GBS from the flu vaccine is with the Department of Justice’s reports from the attorneys that litigate on behalf of the U.S. government and pharmaceutical companies’ interests to avoid paying out settlements. Some of these cases are recorded and found online. The most common one found is Vincent J. Matanoski, J.D., from the DOJ Torts branch. You can find the most recent report from Sept. 5, 2013, and covering the period of 5/16/2013 to 8/15/2013 here.

vaccine settlements 2013 Flu Shot Causes Polio like Guillain Barré Syndrome: Are Rates Higher Than the Government Admits?

There were 77 cases settled during these 3 months, according to this report, as you can see above. Fifty of those cases were for the flu shot, and 31 for GBS. It is not clear if this represents the total number of cases the DOJ settled, or just for this particular attorney. The Justice Department has about 45 attorneys in their Civil Torts division.

Note that these statistics, which clearly show that the vast majority of cases settled in the Vaccine Court are for GBS related to the flu vaccine, are only a portion of those filing cases in the vaccine court. Besides these and others who file claims in the Vaccine Court, how many more are there that never file, either because they simply did not know this special court existed, or were not in a position to fight a lengthy legal battle with the government?

Attorney Howard Gold of Gold Law Firm, who settled a case for GBS due to a flu vaccine in 2011 remarked:

Petitioners have three (3) years from the onset of the injury (or two years from date of death) to file a claim. Gold states that the “Program is not used as much as it could be because the American public is just not aware of it. I receive at least 5 calls a month from individuals who cannot obtain compensation because the deadline has passed. They just found out about it too late. We all need to do a better job in getting the word out to the public that the Program exists.” (Source.)

The other point to consider is that GBS symptoms can range anywhere from a few days to a month after receiving a vaccination, so many people who are suffering from GBS may not even associate their GBS to the flu shot.

The CDC stated before the 2012 flu season that manufacturers had in stock “as many as” 145 million doses of the flu vaccine ready to be sold. It is unlikely that all were sold, but even if they were, given the “official” stats of the government, there should only have been 290 cases of GBS in 2012. Or if you believe what the vaccine manufacturer’s inserts are claiming about GBS rates at one out of one million, then there should only have been 145 cases of GBS due to the flu vaccine last year.

According to the CDC, the total number of GBS cases reported in the U.S. is “about 80 to 160 cases of GBS each week,” or 4,160 to 8,320 cases per year. Of course they make the assumption that most of these are not vaccine related. The official medical view is that the cause of most cases of GBS is “unknown.”

What is Guillain-Barré Syndrome? Here is the definition the CDC gives:

Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is a rare disorder in which a person’s own immune system damages their nerve cells, causing muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis. GBS can cause symptoms that last for a few weeks. Most people recover fully from GBS, but some people have permanent nerve damage. In very rare cases, people have died of GBS, usually from difficulty breathing.

The CDC definition for Polio:

Polio is an infectious disease caused by a virus that lives in the throat and intestinal tract. Up to about 72% of susceptible persons infected with polio have no symptoms. However, infected persons without symptoms can still spread the virus and cause others to develop polio. About 24% of infected susceptible persons have minor symptoms such as fever, sore throat, upset stomach, or flu-like symptoms and have no paralysis or other serious symptoms. About 1-5% develop aseptic meningitis with stiffness of the back, back, or legs, and in some persons increased or abnormal sensations a few days after the minor illness resolves. These symptoms typically last from two to ten days, followed by complete recovery. Less than 1% of polio cases result in paralysis of the limbs (usually the legs). Of those cases resulting in paralysis, 5-10% of the patients die when the respiratory muscles are paralyzed.

Of course, the pro-vaccine crowd wants everyone to believe that polio was eradicated by vaccines a long time ago. Read Dr. Suzanne Humphries’ excellent article: Did Vaccines Really Eradicate Polio?, as well as Dr
. Viera
 Scheibner’s article: The REAL History Behind the Polio Vaccine.

Polio, Guillain-Barré Syndrome, and any other names of disease are simply arbitrary names assigned to groups of symptoms and conditions. The symptoms of polio and GBS are so similar, some people feel that Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s condition was really GBS, and not polio (See: Did FDR Have Guillain-Barré?) There were no flu shots in 1921 when FDR contracted polio, but the tuberculosis vaccine was introduced that year.

It is very obvious from the evidence of cases settled for damages, including death, due to the influenza vaccine, that there is great risk in the seasonal flu shot. And yet these shots are dispensed at pharmacies with no prescription from a physician as if they are completely safe. Sadly, this is probably a result of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program enacted by Congress and upheld by the Supreme Court that gives complete legal immunity to those who produce and sell vaccines in the United States.

Read the full package insert for any of this year’s flu vaccines at the National Vaccine Information Center. You need to educate yourself on the dangers of the flu vaccine, because it is obvious the government and medical system will not.

This is the heartbreaking story of a former professor of nursing at a Connecticut university. She and her daughter, Katie, talk about what happened to their lives after a Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS) complication of a routine flu shot led to strokes and ended in complete paralysis for this once active, vibrant mother and grandmother.

Genetics Research Fraud: Your Genes do NOT Determine Your Health

Genetics Research Fraud: Your Genes do NOT Determine Your Health

Pin It

Your environment and lifestyle, particularly your diet, has a direct influence on your genetic expression. For example, research using identical twins have shown that diet trumps genes in terms of the level of health you achieve.

The science of epigenetics also challenges the conventional view of genetics, proving that the environment determines which traits a gene will express, and that your fate is in no way written in stone even if you have genetic predispositions.

It has become increasingly clear that there’s collusion going on between our government, industry, and scientists, to hide the fact that everything from human health and intellectual capacity to various addictions are indeed caused by the environment in which we find ourselves, NOT genetics and the failed science supporting it with billions of research dollars.

Knowing we are not salves to our genetic heritage offer tremendous amounts of hope for every single one of us, as it removes us from the position of victims of our heredity, and makes us masters of our own health and well-being.

Vaccine Scandals and Criminal Cases Increase in 2014

Vaccine Scandals and Criminal Cases Increase in 2014

Pin It

Criminal activities of pharmaceutical companies are frequently reported on in the mainstream media. The largest criminal settlements in U.S. history are cases against pharmaceutical companies, such as Johnson & Johnson’s $2.2 billion criminal settlement late last year for illegally marketing drugs to the elderly, children and the mentally disabled.

When it comes to criminal activities involved with marketing vaccines, however, there is a near total blackout in the mainstream media. So here at Health Impact News we will highlight a sampling of some of the biggest stories of fraud and criminal activities involved with marketing vaccines so far here in 2014.

Very few of these stories have been mentioned in the mainstream media, because the vaccine market is a multi-billion dollar market, and the vaccine industry does not like losing any market share. They are using their incestuous relationship to the U.S. government to take away personal rights and liberties in medical choices. They would like mandatory vaccine policies in place at the local, state, and national levels, because their products cannot survive in a free market. They need government collusion and coercion for this market to survive. And so far, with the help of the mainstream media generally not reporting on the corruption and criminal activity, they have a willing and compliant public.

The Flu Vaccine War: Healthcare Workers Fight Back

The Flu Vaccine War: Healthcare Workers Fight Back

Pin It

We have already established in previous articles that the flu vaccine is by far the most dangerous vaccine in the United States, injuring and killing many people every year based on settled court cases by the Department of Justice in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.

And yet, hospitals across the country are mandating that healthcare workers receive the flu vaccine as a requirement to keep their employment. The main reason for this policy of forcing employees to receive the flu vaccine is not based on solid science that it protects patients (the science actually points towards no patient benefits), but based on funding requirements for medical reimbursements through Medicare and Medicaid, and through the Affordable Health Care Act, that require healthcare facilities to have a high compliance rate of employees receiving the flu vaccine.

Nurses, doctors, and other healthcare workers across the country are fighting back, however.

This week, he Massachusetts Nurses Association sued Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston to block a policy to require nurses to get flu shots as a condition of employment.

And this is not the first lawsuit in the country. Others have also taken action to protect their right to refuse medical treatments that are mandated as a condition to retain employment.

Why would State Farm make such a controversial decision to pull one of their ads featuring someone who helped families with vaccine-injured children in private, knowing that they would lose customers over it? Could it be they were pressured to do so because they just jumped into the lucrative health insurance exchange business?

Doctors today are over-prescribing diagnostic tests and drugs, and patients need to learn how to say “no” to their doctors. This message, surprisingly, is coming from the mainstream media. While this has been a clear message for many years now in the alternative media, that message is now going “mainstream.”
