AMA Opposes Vaccine Research: A Reply

by Dr. Brownstein’s

The American Medical Association (AMA) has released a position statement that opposes the creation of a new federal commission on vaccine safety whose task is to study the association between autism and vaccines.

“The AMA fully supports the overwhelming body of evidence and rigorous scientific process used by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices which demonstrate vaccines are among the most effective and safest interventions to both prevent individual illness and protect the health of the public,” William E. Kobler, MD said in a statement. Dr. Kobler is a member of the AMA Board of Trustees. (

Autism is occurring at epidemic rates. We now have over 1,000,000 U.S. children diagnosed with autism. Something in our environment is responsible for causing the autism epidemic. It is not due to genetics. Could it be the increasing numbers of vaccines given to our children? Why wouldn’t any rational person want to study this association? A simple study comparing vaccinated with unvaccinated children could help decide whether vaccines are responsible for causing the autism epidemic. But, the Powers-That-Be, like the AMA, do not want this study done as it may turn their world upside down.

In response to the AMA edicts supporting more vaccines and stating that no further research is needed, I and my colleagues have released a reply to the AMA letter.

Response to AMA 2017

Response to AMA’s Status Quo Vaccine Policy, Trumping Safety 23 June 2017

Since 1996, the U.S. Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) has led a concerted effort on driver safety. Its excellent results reduced highway fatalities by 50 percent, per 100,000 licensed drivers, from 23.21 down to 15.26 in 2014.(1)

Over the same period, autism cases per 100,000 have skyrocketed from 2.1 to 25.8 cases, or from 1 in 500 (1995) to 1 in 68 babies born in 2014, more than a seven-old increase. (2)

If those statistics aren’t damning enough, for the first time since 1993, U.S. “life expectancy” has declined(3) and a HHS-sponsored study in 2011 reported that nearly 43% of US children (32 million) had at least 1 of 20 chronic health conditions, increasing to 54.1% when overweight, obesity, or being at risk for developmental delays are included.(4)

Of course, we are supposed to believe that the dramatic spike in childhood illness and cases of autism has nothing to do with tripling of the number of vaccines on the CDC’s Childhood Immunization Schedule between 1996 and 2017.(5,6)

It should be obvious that such a powerful correlation should be examined. But it is not being investigated.

How can the FHWA get safety so right, but the three federal agencies tasked with the safeguarding the health of U.S. citizens—the CDC, the NIH, and FDA—get safety so wrong? That begs the question, where is the American Medical Association (AMA) demanding more research to determine why our children are suffering through an autism epidemic?

One answer: Big Pharma-funded professional organizations, like the AMA and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), have gone to great lengths to ensure that vaccine safety remain in the hands of policymakers; they have systematically blocked efforts of investigations by independent scientists.

Deep Flaws within the Three Agencies

The AMA’s view on vaccine safety—that the status quo is fine and needs no changes—runs counter to the evidence. None of the three-letter agencies are capable of ensuring vaccine safety. The entire system of checks and balances has been so upended that safety, quality control, and quality assurance within the U.S. immunization program has been completely compromised. The flaws are so deep and pervasive that nothing short of a total overhaul should be undertaken. Soon, the crumbling edifice of “vaccine safety” will collapse under its own weight.

So how can the AMA condone “flawed science” and “political manipulation” at the CDC, the NIH, FDA, and within the IOM? Does the AMA believe the echolalia repetition of “safe and effective” is the same as “science-based evidence?”

Why does the AMA continue to condone the CDC’s efforts, even after the domestic (Dr. William Thompson whistleblower(7) and international (Danish scientist Poul Thorsen(8,9) fraudulent science studies have been exposed?

Response to AMA’s Status Quo Position

On June 19, AMA News senior staff writer, Sara Berg, published an Opinion: “AMA backs evidence-based vaccine policy, opposes new commission.”

For many doctors, lawyers, professionals, advocates, and parents of autistic and chronically ill children, we stand against the AMA and the rest of our severely broken, corrupt system of government organizations. They have done nothing as an entire generation of children has spiraled in to a litany of debilitating illnesses, more than at any time in human history.

Vaccines are currently advocated for the elderly, the infirmed, all adults, all pregnant women and their fetuses, and all children of all ages, including premies and micropremies. The standards of vaccine safety must be closely examined. Vaccine trials are only interested in the development of an antibody after a muscle has been injected with foreign matter. The combined and cumulative effects of 55 shots, 209 vaccine antigens, 525 mcg of mercury and 13,425 mcg of aluminum that have been injected into a child by 18 years of age in accordance with the CDC’s 2017 childhood immunization schedule has never been examined. In fact, it has never even been questioned.

The AMA’s blathering that, “physicians remain concerned the current federal administration may attempt to establish new vaccine policy based on unfounded and unscientific facts” is a red herring. It is meant to distract from the current state of poor health experienced by today’s children.

A new, fully transparent Vaccine Safety Commission must be formed. With nearly 250 vaccines in the developmental pipeline,11 examining the safety of injections cannot be overstated. The three-letter agencies, which would subvert this effort, are clearly looking through tainted rose-colored glasses intent on protecting the status quo.

We call on Dr. Kobler and the AMA to a public discussion of, and if necessary, debate on vaccine safety issues.

Leaving a lucrative career as a nephrologist (kidney doctor), Dr. Suzanne Humphries is now free to actually help cure people.

In this autobiography she explains why good doctors are constrained within the current corrupt medical system from practicing real, ethical medicine.

One of the sane voices when it comes to examining the science behind modern-day vaccines, no pro-vaccine extremist doctors have ever dared to debate her in public.

Medical Doctors Opposed to Forced Vaccinations – Should Their Views be Silenced?


One of the biggest myths being propagated in the compliant mainstream media today is that doctors are either pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine, and that the anti-vaccine doctors are all “quacks.”

However, nothing could be further from the truth in the vaccine debate. Doctors are not unified at all on their positions regarding “the science” of vaccines, nor are they unified in the position of removing informed consent to a medical procedure like vaccines.

The two most extreme positions are those doctors who are 100% against vaccines and do not administer them at all, and those doctors that believe that ALL vaccines are safe and effective for ALL people, ALL the time, by force if necessary.

Very few doctors fall into either of these two extremist positions, and yet it is the extreme pro-vaccine position that is presented by the U.S. Government and mainstream media as being the dominant position of the medical field.

In between these two extreme views, however, is where the vast majority of doctors practicing today would probably categorize their position. Many doctors who consider themselves “pro-vaccine,” for example, do not believe that every single vaccine is appropriate for every single individual.

Many doctors recommend a “delayed” vaccine schedule for some patients, and not always the recommended one-size-fits-all CDC childhood schedule. Other doctors choose to recommend vaccines based on the actual science and merit of each vaccine, recommending some, while determining that others are not worth the risk for children, such as the suspect seasonal flu shot.

These doctors who do not hold extreme positions would be opposed to government-mandated vaccinations and the removal of all parental exemptions.

In this article, I am going to summarize the many doctors today who do not take the most extremist pro-vaccine position, which is probably not held by very many doctors at all, in spite of what the pharmaceutical industry, the federal government, and the mainstream media would like the public to believe.
