Vaccines in the News

Just putting up links this month and a must watch video as well. Keep researching and sharing! Mom

Watch this! New interview with Robert F. Kennedy, jr. and Del Bigtree:

This is from an article published in 2015 but is one of the best quotes I’ve seen explaining “Safe and Effective”

The science does not support the statement that vaccines are safe and effective. This is not a scientific finding. This is a marketing slogan taught to doctors in medical school.

Vaccines in the News

Vaccines in the News

I barely know where to start this month. There is SO much going on. These mandates are insane and if you live in California, go sign the petition against SB 276 –

Here’s a great article by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. 

Americans Can Handle an Open Discussion on Vaccines—RFK, Jr. Responds to Criticism from His Family

CHD NOTE: In early May 2019, Politico Magazine published an article written by three of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s relatives, criticizing his advocacy for safe vaccines. After numerous requests, Politico magazine has refused to publish his response. 

By Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.  

Three of my Kennedy relatives recently published an article criticizing my advocacy for safe vaccines. Our contentious family dispute highlights the fierce national donnybrook over vaccinations that has divided communities and raised doubts about the Democratic Party’s commitment to some of its defining values: abhorrence of censorship, wariness toward excessive corporate power, support for free speech, religious freedom, and personal sovereignty over our bodies, and the rights of citizens (codified in the Nuremberg Code and other treaties to which we are signatories) to decline unwanted government-mandated medical interventions. The debate has also raised questions about the independence of our press and its role as a champion of free speech, and First Amendment rights as a bulwark against overreaching by government and corporations.

I love my family and sympathize with their anxieties when I call out government officials for corruption. The Kennedys have a long, close, and continuing relationship with public health agencies so it is understandably difficult for us to believe that powerful regulators would lie about vaccines. “All issues are simple,” the saw goes, “until you study them.”

Those conflicts motivate them to recommend ever more vaccines with minimal support from evidence-based science.

My skepticism

I’ve arrived at my skepticism after 15 years spent researching and litigating this issue. I have watched financial conflicts and institutional self-interest transform key sectors of our public health bureaucracies into appendages of the very pharmaceutical companies that Congress charged them to regulate.

Multiple investigations by Congress and the HHS Inspector General have consistently found that an overwhelming majority of the FDA officials directly charged with licensing vaccines, and the CDC officials who effectively mandate them for children, have personal financial entanglements with vaccine manufacturers. These public servants are often shareholders in, grant recipients from, and paid consultants to vaccine manufacturers, and, occasionally, patent holders of the very vaccines they vote to approve. Those conflicts motivate them to recommend ever more vaccines with minimal support from evidence-based science.

HHS partners with vaccine makers to develop, approve, recommend, and pass mandates for new products and then shares profits from vaccine sales.

The pharmaceutical industry also enforces policy discipline through agency budgets. FDA receives 45% of its annual budget from industry. The World Health Organization (WHO) gets roughly half its budget from private sources, including Pharma and its allied foundations.  And CDC, frankly, is a vaccine company; it owns 56 vaccine patents and buys and distributes $4.6 billion in vaccines annually through the Vaccines for Children program, which is over 40% of its total budget. Further, Pharma directly funds, populates and controls dozens of CDC programs through the CDC foundation.  A British Medical Journal editorial excoriates CDC’s sweetheart relationship with pharma quotes UCLA Professor of Medicine Jerome R. Hoffman “most of us were shocked to learn the CDC takes funding from industry… It is outrageous that industry is apparently allowed to punish the CDC if the agency conducts research that has potential to cut into profits.”

HHS partners with vaccine makers to develop, approve, recommend, and pass mandates for new products and then shares profits from vaccine sales. HHS employees can personally collect up to $150,000 annually in royalties for products they work on. For example, key HHS officials collect money on every sale of Merck’s controversial HPV vaccine Gardasil, which also yields tens of millions annually for the agency in patent royalties. Furthermore, under the 1986 Act that created the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, HHS is the defendant in Vaccine Court and is legally obligated to defend against any claim that a vaccine causes injury. Despite high hurdles for recovery, HHS pays out hundreds of millions of dollars annually (over $4 billion total) to Americans injured by vaccines. Hence, if HHS publishes any study acknowledging that a vaccine causes a harm, claimants can use that study against HHS in Vaccine Court. In June 2009, a high-level HHS official, Tom Insel, killed a $16 million-dollar budget item to study the relationship between vaccines and autism by the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee. Insel argued that petitioners would use these studies against HHS in vaccine court.

Such conflicts are a formula for “agency capture” on steroids. “Instead of a regulator and a regulated industry, we now have a partnership,” says Dr. Michael Carome, a former HHS employee who is now the director of the advocacy group Public Citizen. Carome says that these financial entanglements have tilted HHS “away from a public health perspective to an industry-friendly perspective.”

Vaccines are Religion, not Science

by Rixta Francis
The Fiction of Science

We hear all the time that “the science is clear: vaccines save lives.”

But where is that science? If it exists, then why can nobody show it?

The belief in vaccines comes in two parts: safety and efficacy.

Let’s first look at the science that proves efficacy (spoiler alert: there is none). Vaccines are made by the pharmaceutical industry and this industry has a lot of tricks to make their products look better than they are.

One cherished concept is the “surrogate endpoint”. They make up a theory, e.g. “cholesterol causes heart attacks”. Then they make a drug that lowers cholesterol and then that drug is promoted as preventing heart attacks, even when it does no such thing. It only lowers cholesterol.

The same principle is used with vaccines, but then the surrogate endpoint is antibodies. If a vaccine produces enough antibodies (a totally random number) in enough people the vaccine is considered effective.

But it has been known for some 100 years that antibodies do not equal immunity. Of course the people think that efficacy means that the vaccine prevents the disease, but that’s just not true. There is no scientific proof whatsoever that vaccines prevent disease.

But what about all the diseases that have disappeared?

Some disappeared because of improved living circumstances. E.g. smallpox and cholera are strongly linked to dirt and bad food.

But most of the infectious diseases were renamed as soon as there came a vaccine available. Sometimes (e.g. with polio) this was an official instruction to doctors, but in most cases doctors have such strong faith in vaccines that they simply won’t diagnose e.g. measles or whooping cough in a person who has been fully vaccinated.

With every new vaccine multiple new diagnoses are invented to hide the fact that the vaccine doesn’t work. These are tricks that have nothing to do with science, but everything with beliefs.

Let’s have a look now at the safety of vaccines. The “gold standard” for drugs is the double blind, placebo controlled study.

There is a lot wrong with this, but let’s accept for now that this is the standard. It’s very hard to get a drug approved without doing such studies.

But for vaccines they are simply not done. A placebo is an inactive substance, so in case of vaccines that should be a saline injection.

But vaccines are tested against other vaccines, or a number of other vaccines, or an injection of the vaccine minus the antigen.

Which means that if both groups have a lot of health issues the new vaccine is considered safe and all problems are labelled coincidence.

Of course this is extremely unethical, but the manufacturers get away with this because vaccines have been relabelled as “biologics”, instead of drugs. That’s also the reason why everywhere they can be marketed directly to the public, where this is usually not allowed for prescription drugs.

Many children (and adults) get very sick in the hours, days or weeks after vaccinations, but doctors generally label all these health issues coincidence and not related to the vaccinations.

Considering how much this happens the only conclusion can be that doctors have an almost unlimited belief in coincidence. They have developed such a faith in coincidence to protect their faith in vaccines. It’s quite bizarre when you think about it, but it’s just how it is.

This is in reply to an article that was in The New Yorker:

An Open Letter to Nick Paumgarten, Author of “The Message of Measles”

Editorial By Alison Fujito, Children’s Health Defense Contributing Writer

Mr. Paumgarten, it’s long past time to address the misinformation in articles like yours, The Message of Measles, which paints such an intensely biased, extremist picture of those who delay or even refuse vaccines, that by my definition, it does not qualify as journalism.

In the first place, please stop calling us “anti-vaxxers.”  WE VACCINATED OUR CHILDREN.  Our sons and daughters had medically-documented, serious adverse reactions to vaccines. Not redness, swelling, or a little fever, but autoimmune reactions, neurological reactions like seizure, encephalopathy, or loss of consciousness, and a host of others with long-term sequelae. Yet our children’s injuries are dismissed and ignored, while we are inexplicably —and unethically— told we must continue to vaccinate to protect others.

Why wouldn’t we protest?

This isn’t about your conspiracy theories of “the anti-vaccination movement,” Andrew Wakefield, social media phenomena, “die-heard refuseniks,” and this most certainly is not about “immunological amnesia.”

This is about what happened to our children, and why. We haven’t forgotten what happened to our own children, Mr. Paumgarten.  We never will.  Some of us will regret that we vaccinated until the day we die.

Some of us are not even opposed to vaccines, only to compulsory vaccination.  Others have, understandably, lost trust in the entire medical system. We are, however, united in our opposition to fraudulent product licensure, fraudulent product marketing, and corruption of government entities meant to oversee industry, but staffed by it instead.

People seem to have no trouble understanding the fraud and corruption that led to the opioid debacle.  And the Vioxx debacle. And the DES, thalidomide, and countless other debacles caused by pharmaceutical dishonesty.  There is clear evidence of  fraud and corruption involving many vaccines. Why is that so hard to accept?

Note that Merck has been in federal court since 2010 on fraud charges brought by their own virologists, who disclosed that they were actually forced to falsify efficacy data for the MMR vaccine.

This is especially significant because Merck, like other vaccine manufacturers, is already exempt from the gold standard requirement of randomized, double-blind, inert-placebo-controlled safety trials on vaccines because they are classified as “biologics” rather than “drugs.” Yet, astoundingly, in the US, they cannot be sued for adverse reactions, not even if they are proven negligent.

Inadequate safety testing for a mandated medical intervention, yet full protection from liability — this is a recipe for disaster.

As if that weren’t bad enough, we also lack an adequate reporting system for post-vaccine adverse events.

The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) was intended to pick up signals of unanticipated adverse reactions. It was put in place in 1989 along with the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, because children were suffering vaccine-induced seizures, and their parents were suing the vaccine manufacturers, who had never fully disclosed the risks.

Parent representatives and legislators agreed that the new reporting system would contain a Table of Injuries that would, under specific circumstances, automatically qualify for compensation, so that families could obtain necessary long-term medical care for their vaccine-injured children. This included seizures within a specified time frame following certain vaccines, already noted in package inserts as reported adverse reactions.

Under the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, physicians were and still are required to report post-vaccination events listed on the Table of Injuries.

But in February of 1995, seizures were quietly removed from the Table of Injuries by Donna Shalala.

So, today, most doctors don’t bother to report post-vaccine seizures to VAERS, because they’re not required to.

In fact, a 2010 CDC-funded study by Harvard Pilgrim found that less than 1% of the post-vaccination adverse events recorded by doctors in their own medical records were ever reported to VAERS.

This means that the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System fails to pick up signals of unanticipated seizure reactions, because the vast majority are not being reported.

It also means we have no idea how many serious adverse events follow vaccination, nor how many of those are genuine reactions.  They’re not reported; they don’t get investigated. Even those that are reported are not adequately investigated.  Also, there are no studies under way to uncover shared susceptibilities to adverse vaccine reaction.

We can’t even find out how many seizure reactions WERE reported. VAERS staff, rather than the reporting doctors, assign one of at least 28 different reporting codes to seizure/encephalopathy/similar neurological events, which are then listed in alphabetical order together with ALL other event reports.

Even so, I was able to find over 7,500 reports of such reactions reported as associated with MMR vaccines.

Is that 1% of what really happened?  More? Less?

If it’s 10% of what really happened, we’d be looking at 75,000 such reactions.

If it’s 1%, we’re looking at 750,000.

Seizures.  EpilepsyConvulsionsEncephalopathy.  Encephalitis.

Brain damage.

It’s completely unethical to use the “disdainful” (as you termed it, Mr. Paumgarten) pejorative, “anti-vaxxers” to manipulate the conversation, or even to describe the friends and families of children who suffered vaccine adverse reactions.

But vaccines work,” you weakly cry.  Or do they?

The primary and secondary failure rates for the MMR vaccine are high enough to destroy any hope for the 95% “herd immunity” threshold we’re told is necessary, even with 100% vaccination compliance.

Most people either have forgotten or are too young to know that the MMR vaccine was licensed under the promise that one shot would confer lifetime immunity. You know, I know, we all know that this is simply not true.  A 2012 Mayo Clinic study shows that 2-10% vaccinated individuals don’t make any antibodies to measles, even after 2 shots.  This is called “primary vaccine failure.”  A 2012 study  from the Helsinki Department of Infectious Disease Surveillance and Control shows that up to 18% whose vaccines initially worked have low-to-zero antibodies within FIVE years of being “fully” vaccinated. That’s textbook secondary vaccine failure. Similar numbers for both primary and secondary failures had already been documented for MMR vaccines in 1985.

SB276 is an Outrage

SB276 is an outrage

California currently has one of the most restrictive vaccine policies in the country.  There are only a few states that have taken away the religious and personal exemptions and do not allow children to go to school if they do not have a number of vaccines. West Virginia and Mississippi are the only other states as restrictive as ours.

In 2015 Senator Pan (who has taken tens of thousands of dollars from the pharmaceutical industry) authored SB 277, which kept children out of school unless they were vaccinated for nine diseases with sixteen doses.

This list includes Hepatitis B, which is a sexually transmitted disease! (Why are we giving this vaccine to newborn babies when their moms have already been tested for Hepatitis when pregnant?)

The only reason Governor Brown signed SB277 into law was because “The Legislature, after considerable debate, specifically amended SB 277, to exempt a child from immunizations whenever the child’s physician concluded that there are circumstances, including but not limited to, family medical history, for which the physician does not recommend immunization…” (Gov. Brown SB 277 signing letter June 30th, 2015)

SB 276 Breaks the Legislature’s Promises and contradicts Senators Pan and Allen’s own public promises made during the SB 277 hearings: “medical exemption that is at the professional judgment of the physician” (Pan) and a “strong and robust medical exemption so that anybody who has a legitimate medical concern…can get a medical exemption from a doctor” (Allen).

SB 276 Threatens the Doctor-Patient Relationship, a concern to all doctors and patients. It would be unprecedented to have a law that a doctor could not provide honest advice.

Now Senator Pan is behind SB 276. He says it’s to stop doctors from making false exemptions. The state can already investigate doctors without new legislation and it has – with no findings of any wrongdoing.  What SB276 will do if passed, is stop doctors from writing exemptions even for the children that need them.

According to the bill, any doctor who writes more then five exemptions in a year will be automatically investigated. How will this work for pediatric oncologists? Are they supposed to have a lottery to see which of their immune compromised patients will be able to go to school? How many doctors won’t write exemptions for children who need them because of these limits?  SB 276 is an outrage!

No matter what your stance on vaccines, the government should not get between patients and doctors to make medical decisions.  The government has no right to practice medicine without a license.

Vaccines have not been placebo safety tested and since 1986 the pharmaceutical companies that make them have zero liability if you or your child is injured or killed from a vaccine.  You have to sue our government if there is an injury and the fact that there has been over four billion dollars paid out – with a maximum payment of $250,000 for death – shows that vaccine do injure and kill.  These companies need to be liable again for vaccine injury – only then will they do actual gold standard safety testing.

This bill is expensive. SB 276 as currently written would put school vaccine medical exemptions under the scrutiny of a state bureaucrat, penalizing children and their doctors rather than creating a bill that would specifically target unscrupulous doctors. It’s estimated that the cost of SB 276 will be in excess of $50 million in the first year and approximately $35 million in each subsequent year, with an additional $650 million potential loss in school funding when families with vaccine injured or medically fragile children are forced to pull their children out of public school.

SB 276 would require all approved medical exemptions be included in a database accessible to the California Department of Public Health – creating potential HIPAA and FERPA privacy issues.

Call your State Senator and your State Representative and tell them to vote NO on SB 276.

Why are so many questioning vaccines?

Why are so many questioning vaccines?

People are labeling anyone questioning the safety of vaccines as ‘anti-vaxxers’.  Since when is questioning the safety of a product, especially one used on our babies and elderly a bad thing?

Since 1986 the vaccine companies have ZERO liability if their products injure or kill you or your child.  Can you imagine if the auto industry had zero liability?  How are we expected to have confidence in a company that does not have to stand behind their product? How does no liability make them care about safety?

As part of the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, there was supposed to be ongoing safety testing. It’s never happened.  In 1986 vaccines were a billion dollar a year business and kids got 7-8 vaccines, now it’s a 50 billion dollar business with 69 doses (never tested together for safety) and there are hundreds of vaccines in the works. No wonder the companies want vaccines mandated.  Pharmaceutical companies also buy approximately 70 percent of all advertising.  That gives them quite a bit of control over the media. Merck is the company who makes the MMR vaccine. Merck is also the company that paid out 830 millon dollars in settlements when they were convicted of selling Vioxx while knowing it was killing people.

Vaccines have not been proven safe – The average testing time for vaccines is 2- 4 days! Compare this with drugs like Lipitor, which had a testing period of 4.8 years. The gold standard of medical testing is the double blind placebo test.  This has never been performed on any vaccine. Most of the studies use another vaccine for the control group.  That is not science, that’s company sponsored tobacco science. There has only been one study that compared vaccinated vs. unvaccinated children.  The children who were not vaccinated were much healthier:

This is one of the best presentations I’ve seen on vaccine safety, please watch and share:

There’s a top CDC scientist that has come out as a whistleblower with proof that a study showing an MMR/ Autism connection was altered at the CDC.

It’s not the viruses in the vaccines that are the problem but the adjuncts.  Aluminum, thiomersal (a mercury based preservative), formaldehyde and others.  These are proven neurotoxins and given in amounts that are beyond the safe adult threshold, let alone for infants.

“In young children, a highly significant correlation exists between the number of pediatric aluminum-adjuvanted vaccines administered and the rate of autism spectrum disorders.” — C. A. Shaw, MD, Vaccine safety researcher

Vaccines have not been proven effective.  There’s a US Navy ship that’s been quarantined at sea for three months with a mumps outbreak.  They are 100% vaccinated. There was a recent outbreak of whooping cough at a school in LA and every child who contracted it was vaccinated. They are adding more and more boosters because vaccines are failing.

When the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act was passed the Federal Government took over liability for vaccine injuries and deaths with the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. They only pay out for proven vaccine injuries and have paid out over 4 billion dollars to date. 

What percentage of the decision makers at CDC and FDA have financial ties to the vaccine industry?  Way too many. This is unconscionable and a breech of ethics.

Why are they fighting so hard to sensor safety questions if they have nothing to hide?

I think vaccines could be a wonderful thing if they were safe and effective. Right now there is no proof that they are either. 

The pharmaceutical companies can try to censor free speech all they want but us mama bears will never stop protecting our babies and grand-babies.


A few notes:

Robert F Kennedy, one of the top environmental attorneys of our time has a lot to say about vaccine safety.  Learn more here:

The National Vaccine Information Center has links to numerous government studies and unbiased, factual information about vaccines.

Lots of great info from Del Bigtree and Highwire here:

“Labeling people concerned about the safety of vaccines as “anti-vaccine” risks entrenching positions.  The label (or its derogatory derivative “anti-vaxxer”) is a form of attack.  It stigmatizes the mere act of even asking an open question about what is known and unknown about the safety of vaccines… the label too quickly assumes that there are “two sides” to every question, and that the “two sides” are polar opposites.  This “you’re either with us or against us” thinking is unfit for medicine.”

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Press Conference – The Science of Vaccines Forum

It’s a bit fuzzy and takes a few minutes – the news conference starts about 9 minutes in – this is critical information for all of us.

After you’ve watched the video, I recommend you go to the Children’s Health Defense website.

Please learn and share. We can all get this information out and protect our children.



Vaccinations in the news – Part 2

Why are we talking about vaccinations in the past few months instead of food?  Good question. It’s because the pharmaceutical industry is doing what the GMO industry tried to but couldn’t. They are trying to suppress valid safety questions about their products that are hurting our children. 

Our main goal at Moms for Safe Food is to protect our children so this issue is very relevant to their health.


This is a great interview with a practicing pediatrician.  A scientist did research on his patients and the results are eye opening and very important.

The below is a very good interview with a pediatrician, who documents the outcomes of his patients, both vaccinated and vaccinated. Important info for all of us.

Aluminum and the Neurotoxicity of Vaccines

By Dr. Gary G. Kohls

“No vaccine manufacturer shall be liable…for damages arising from a vaccine-related injury or death.” — President Ronald Reagan, as he signed The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) of 1986, absolving drug companies from all medico-legal liability when children die or are disabled from vaccine injuries.

“In young children, a highly significant correlation exists between the number of pediatric aluminum-adjuvanted vaccines administered and the rate of autism spectrum disorders.” — C. A. Shaw, MD, Vaccine safety researcher

“…no adequate studies have been conducted to assess the safety of simultaneous administration of different vaccines to young children.” Nor has there been “ any toxicological evaluation about concomitant administration of aluminum with other known toxic compounds which are routine constituents of commercial vaccine preparations, e.g., formaldehyde, formalin, mercury, phenoxyethanol, phenol, sodium borate, polysorbate 80, glutaraldehyde.” — L. Tomljenovic and C.A. Shaw, Vaccine safety researchers

In the last few decades since the “mysterious” autism epidemic began in the late 1980s, the giant pharmaceutical companies, free from the constraints of medico-legal liability, began pumping out more and more highly profitable vaccines, and their lobbyists in D.C., their well-paid spokespersons and the industry-co-opted “regulatory agencies” (like WHO, the CDC, the FDA and NIH) rejoiced.

Then, in 1996, the Big Pharma corporate machine and lobbyists got the US Congress to do its bidding and legalize direct-to-consumer advertising for its products, which up to then was illegal. And Big Pharma has also been bribing most US Congresspersons with lavish campaign donations and totally dominated the mainstream media debates that come up from time to time concerning drug and vaccine injuries, intoxication, sickness and death.. Up until now they have also succeeded in silencing the thousands of anguished parents of vaccine-injured children who are just trying to tell their tragic stories.

At least partly because of the dire financial consequences that these industries may have to face if the stories were to be widely told, these parents and their advocates have been essentially black-balled by every media outlet that takes advertising dollars from Big Pharma. The black-listing is probably welcome to everybody associated with Big Pharma’s industries, like Wall Street executives, Big Media executives and others in the investor classes that may have pharmaceutical stocks in their portfolios (or are simply on friendly terms with medical or pharmaceutical establishment types that don’t want to destabilize the gravy train).

Tens of thousands of angry and increasingly vocal “Mama Bear” mothers, are no longer willing to accept the excuse from their clinics that “the neurological catastrophe that your child suffered after the shots was just a coincidence”. And they are demanding an audience, some compassion, some help and some compensation for their losses.

The New Internet Police Protecting You From Freedom of Thought and Speech

“It has been 25 years since the nonprofit charity founded in 1982 by parents of vaccine injured children, the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), began posting vaccine information on the Internet. Our mission is to prevent vaccine injuries and deaths through public education and to protect the ethical principle of informed consent to medical risk taking, which serves as the foundation for the ethical practice of medicine.46 The co-founders and parent representatives of NVIC have a long, transparent public record of consumer advocacy, including working with Congress to secure vaccine safety informing, recording, reporting and research provisions in the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 and serving on federal vaccine advisory committees and testifying in congressional and state legislative hearings.47 48

New Danish MMR Study Shows Autism Rate of 1 in 100—CDC Should Rush to Denmark!

COPENHAGEN, Denmark—We have another “Danish Study” that will invariably be all the talk. It’s too bad no one reads (or understands) the details about these studies that are both funded and researched by vaccine companies (this one is funded by the Novo Nordisk Foundation and research completed by Danish vaccine maker Statens Serum Institut.)

I won’t bore you with how consistently this particular vaccine maker has helped publish bogus studies used here in the U.S. to prove “vaccines don’t cause autism”, but it’s a long, sordid history. So, I’m just going to make six quick points about why this study doesn’t change anything about the debate (but will most certainly be used by Paul Offit and others to “slam the door” once again):

1. We’ve still only studied a single vaccine. Even though children receive 11 vaccines, and MMR isn’t given until 12 months old, long after many other vaccines. Here’s the table:

WHO, Pharma, Gates & Government: Who’s Calling the Shots?

On Jan. 16, 2019 the World Health Organization (WHO) issued a report ranking “vaccine hesitancy” as one of the top “Ten Threats to Global Health in 2019”, alongside air pollution and climate change; noncommunicable diseases; global influenza pandemic; antimicrobial resistance; and infectious diseases such as ebola, dengue fever and HIV.1 Throughout history, the greatest contributors to disease and early death in human populations have been poverty, poor sanitation and poor nutrition, 2 3 4 yet infectious diseases with pharmaceutical solutions dominated this list. And there was no mention of the major opioid addiction crisis crippling and killing tens of thousands of people in the U.S. and Europe, 5 6 or the iatrogenic medical error epidemic that every year claims more than 750,000 lives in Europe 7 and 250,000 lives in the U.S., where it is the third leading cause of death. 8

The immediate mainstream media response to the WHO’s announcement was to focus on “vaccine hesitancy.” On Jan. 19, the Editorial Board of the New York Times declared that “anti-vaxxers” are “the enemy” and called on the U.S. government to “get tough” by waging a “bold and aggressive” pro-vaccine campaign that includes “tightening restrictions around how much leeway states can grant families that want to skip essential vaccines.” 9 By Jan. 23, The Hill announced that Washington state had declared a state of emergency because of 23 cases of measles reported in an “anti-vaccination community” near Portland, Oregon,10 and there was a public call in the UK for social media platforms to “clamp down on fake news” and censor “misleading information and negative messaging around vaccination.” 11 12

The New York Times editorial headline “How to Inoculate Against Anti-Vaxxers” was a theme repeated in articles reacting to the WHO’s suggestion that people wanting to make informed, voluntary decisions about vaccination are a global menace. One doctor suggested that parents who don’t vaccinate their children are selfish: ”… it’s a matter of ‘I don’t care about other people in the community, I only care about the health and welfare of my own child.’” 13

There was no discussion about institutionally acknowledged gaps in vaccine safety science 14 15 or the fact that most parents dutifully follow the advice of pediatricians and public health officials and only became vaccine safety critics after the risks of vaccination for their children turned out to be 100 percent.16 17 No discussion about the fact that since 2011, pharmaceutical companies have no liability for injuries and deaths caused by government recommended and mandated vaccines they sell in the U.S. 18 Instead, parents of vaccine injured children and others concerned about vaccine safety, who for decades have been asking government and industry to produce better quality vaccine science and more humane vaccine policies that respect genetic and biological diversity, were stereotyped as “anti-vaxxers” and demonized as a “threat” to public health.

Herd Immunity and Vaccination

What he’s talking about is achieving and maintaining so-called vaccine-acquired “herd immunity,” the theory which maintains that once a majority of people have been vaccinated, the infectious disease in question can no longer spread and everyone is protected, including the tiny minority who for whatever reason are not or cannot be vaccinated.

The problem with this argument is that it doesn’t work for vaccines. While there is such a thing as herd immunity among populations in which a majority has had the infectious disease and acquired a long lasting natural immunity, vaccines confer only temporary artificial immunity, and so true herd immunity is unlikely to be fully achieved, even if nearly 100 percent of the population are vaccinated.

The measles vaccine, for example, wears off after about a decade3 or two. 4,5 Whatever temporary artificial protection is obtained from other vaccines also fades in time. If you are an adult, chances are that some of the vaccinations you received as a child are not protecting you today.6 What’s more, between 2 and 10 percent of some vaccines result in “primary vaccine failure,” meaning those who get the vaccine do not gain even temporary artificial protection after vaccination. 7

Indeed, public health officials are now recommending adults born in or after 1957 to get revaccinated against measles.8,9,10 Since the Disneyland-related measles outbreak in early 2015, some public health doctors are even suggesting all adults should get a measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) booster shot because as many as 1 in 10 previously vaccinated adults may be susceptible to measles due to waning vaccine-acquired immunity.11

N.Y. Law Professor Addresses U.N. on Government Vaccine Policies Violating the Nuremberg Code

New York University research scholar and law professor Mary Holland recently addressed the United Nations at the 25th International Health and Environment Conference.

Professor Holland has been one of the lone voices in the U.S. addressing the legal ramifications of removing parental rights to informed consent for childhood vaccines.  She has previously written for Health Impact News on this issue. See:

Killing the Messenger: U.S. Vaccine Law and Policy

Professor Holland sees major civil rights issues involved in government vaccine policies that remove informed consent rights to refuse mandatory vaccinations. She reminds the United Nations that history has shown us the results of such overt government intrusion into personal medical rights. World-wide human rights legislation has been put into place to protect individuals from government intrusion into medical abuse, starting with the Nuremberg Code just after the atrocities of Nazi Germany after World War II.

Professor Holland states:

[T]he UN and the international community have obligations to respect human rights related to vaccination.

Since World War II, the international community has recognized the grave dangers in involuntary scientific and medical experimentation on human subjects.  In the aftermath of Nazi medical atrocities, the world affirmed the Nuremberg Code which stated that the “voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential.” The International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights further enshrined this prohibition against involuntary experimentation in its 1966 text, stating “no one shall be subjected without his free consent to medical or scientific experimentation.” Such a prohibition is now so universally recognized that some courts and scholars have pronounced the right to informed consent in experiments as a matter of customary international law.

Vaccinations in the News

I find it very disturbing that the pharmaceutical industry has succeeded in doing what the biotech industry (thank goodness) has been unable to – Anyone who questions vaccine safety is labeled an anti-science nut.  Which of course is not true. Many of the people questioning vaccine safety are doctors, scientists and informed parents.

There are so many reasons that informed choice and consent about vaccination is important. The industry who makes our vaccines are the same huge corporations who are raising prices on insulin (to the point where people are dying) and who spend millions of dollars trying, and too often succeeding in buying our representatives.  There have never been safety studies on the cocktail of vaccines that are now recommended for our children. How do they interact with each other and how does that affect our health.

Since 1986, vaccine makers in the US are not liable if you or your child are injured or killed by one of their products. This gives them no reason to even begin to care about safety.

There are risks for all vaccines and when you go to your doctor most are not showing you the vaccine inserts or going over the possible reactions with you.

Some of my overall issues with vaccines are:

1) If they’re so effective then why does it matter if some people opt out. –  If vaccines were so good they could be used only by people who choose to use them and they should be protected by whatever disease the vaccine is for.

2) Why are we vaccinating against diseases that are usually mild and incur lifetime immunity like Chicken pox, Measles and mumps.  My generation had all of those diseases when young and they were minor illnesses.  Our kids were taken to ‘chicken pox parties’ to make sure everyone had the disease and was over it at one time.  But now the industry is using fear tactics to scare everyone.

3) The CDC is not an impartial agency. They own vaccine patents.

This is a huge multi-billions dollar industry. They are interested in profit much more then they’re interested in our health.  The current revenue from vaccines is around 30 Billion per year and is expected to grow to 77 Billion by 2024.  Of course they don’t want anyone questioning the safety of their products.  Just like the junk food and tobacco industries.  Great article about that and the herd immunity myth here:

There are many doctors and scientists questioning vaccine safety and just like what happened with GMOs, the industry is trying to silence these voices.  Industries do this when they have something to hide.

There is censorship going on as well. A number of sites giving factual, scientific information about the risks of vaccines are being censored on social media sites.

Please educate yourself. Share with friends and neighbors. It’s important.

New study showing organic diets cut cancer risk is a big deal – let’s treat it that way

No study is perfect — but recent findings that organic food consumption cuts cancer risk highlights an opportunity to tackle a deadly, expensive health crisis

EXCERPT: After adjusting as fully as possible for confounding factors, [the researchers] reported their main result in the studied cohort of 70,000 French citizens — a 25 percent reduction in the risk of being diagnosed with a new case of cancer within four years after study enrolment in the high-organic food intake group, compared to the low (and essentially no) organic food intake group.

No study is perfect — but recent findings that organic food consumption cuts cancer risk highlights an opportunity to tackle a deadly, expensive health crisis

More than 1.7 million Americans will be newly diagnosed with cancer in 2018, and 35 percent of these cases will prove fatal.

A little less than $150 billion was spent fighting cancer in 2017.

Imagine the excitement that would accompany the discovery of anything — a new drug, therapy, diet, or lifestyle change — that promises to cut overall cancer frequency by 5 percent.

Every year, such a discovery would spare 87,000 people this most-feared diagnosis, and reduce deaths by 30,000 and cancer-related health care costs by around $7 billion.

Such monumental benefits would justify major investments and significant policy change.

Well, not necessarily.

There is a new paper in JAMA Internal Medicine by a team of French scientists that reports a 25 percent decrease in overall cancer risk from relatively high levels of organic food consumption, compared to little or no organic food consumption, in a large, prospective epidemiological study.

Sizable reductions in prevalence were also seen for breast cancer, non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL), and all lymphomas. (Check out a written summary of the study methods or this 2-minute video focused on key findings).

The French scientists suspect that the reduction in pesticide dietary exposure among study participants reporting a high-level of organic food intake is the key factor driving these encouraging results. The team did all it could to control for several confounding factors.

They stressed the study’s limits and the clear need for more precise measures of pesticide dietary exposures. They emphasized the need for all consumers to eat more fruits and vegetables, conventional and/or organic.

Monsanto trial: judge rejects bid to overturn landmark cancer verdict

Dewayne Johnson originally won $289m after finding Roundup weedkiller caused illness, but judge reduces financial award

A California judge has rejected Monsanto’s appeal to overturn a landmark jury verdict which found that its popular herbicide causes cancer.

The judge’s ruling on Monday largely sided with Dewayne “Lee” Johnson, a father of three and former school groundskeeper, who won a $289m award over the summer after alleging that his exposure to Roundup weedkiller gave him cancer. During the trial, the first of its kind, the 46-year-old also alleged that Monsanto had failed to warn him of the risks of using its product.

Monsanto, now owned by Bayer, the German pharmaceutical company, filed an appeal of the verdict, which said the company was responsible for “negligent failure”, knew or should have known that its product was “dangerous”, and had “acted with malice or oppression”.

Monsanto fought to overturn the verdict, arguing the evidence was insufficient. The San Francisco superior court judge Suzanne Bolanos had suggested in an initial written ruling this month that she was considering granting a new trial. But she ultimately denied Monsanto’s request. However, she has ruled to reduce punitive damages from $250m to $39m.

The judge said in her ruling on Monday that if Johnson did not accept the lower punitive damages, she would order a new trial for Monsanto.

Johnson’s lawyers said in a statement on Monday that the “reduction in punitive damages was unwarranted” and that his legal team, Baum Hedlund and the Miller Firm, was “weighing the options”.

They added, “The evidence presented to this jury was, quite frankly, overwhelming … Today is a triumph for our legal system. We care deeply for Lee and his family, and we are excited to share this important win with them and all those who supported this case.”

Monsanto may leave India after losing GMO cotton patent

Citing India’s Patents Act of 1970, the Delhi High Court said that plant varieties and seeds cannot be patented

EXCERPT: “What it means is effectively Monsanto has no patent on seeds in India and they have never had it. They have tried to hoodwink the seed companies and farmers for years claiming they have a patent and making huge amounts of money from that,” Diya Kapur, a lawyer for Nuziveedu Seeds, told Bloomberg.

Could Monsanto’s six-decade presence in India be coming to a halt?

On Wednesday, the Delhi High Court ruled that the biotech giant cannot claim patents for Bollgard and Bollgard II, its genetically modified cotton seeds, in the country.

Citing India’s Patents Act of 1970, the court said that plant varieties and seeds cannot be patented, thereby rejecting Monsanto’s attempt to block its Indian licensee, Nuziveedu Seeds Ltd., from selling the seeds.

“What it means is effectively Monsanto has no patent on seeds in India and they have never had it. They have tried to hoodwink the seed companies and farmers for years claiming they have a patent and making huge amounts of money from that,” Diya Kapur, a lawyer for Nuziveedu Seeds, told Bloomberg.

As Dilsher Dhillon wrote in Business Insider India, Wednesday’s verdict could prompt Monsanto to pull out of the country:

With the latest ruling, Monsanto’s claims against Nuziveedu for unpaid royalties have been waived because its patents are invalid. It will now have to settle for the rates decided by the government.

This is a significant blow for Monsanto, the world’s largest seed producer, as it currently licenses its seeds to nearly 50 domestic companies through its local joint venture with Mahyco Seeds Ltd. It could, in all probability, lead to the company’s complete exit from India.
