There Is No “Anti-Vaccine” Movement

A feature article published this month in the Public Library of Science A Broken Trust: Lessons from the Vaccine–Autism Wars endeavours to dismiss justified concerns about vaccine safety as by just illogical “anti-vaccine” campaigners with irrational views not based on evidence.  It is another sad testimony to the unscientific belief that the majority “consensus” is right when in science the reality is that often it is one person or a very few demonstrating the majority is wrong.  The author is Liza Gross, Senior Science Writer/Editor, PLoS Biology, Public Library of Science, San Francisco, California.

One of the feature article’s themes “Evidence-Resistant Theories” has some irony in dismissing well-founded concerns and more so in the light of a much-needed:-

REALITY CHECK

  • The issue is Child Health Safety.
  • There is no anti-vaccine movement.
  • There is evidence of lack of safety and oversight and of children being at risk from vaccines where the risks of the vaccines now seem overwhelmingly to outweigh claimed benefits.
  • The hazards are not being investigated or reported properly and are downplayed.

We have compensated cases in which children exhibited an encephalopathy, or general brain disease. Encephalopathy may be accompanied by a medical progression of an array of symptoms including autistic behavior, autism, or seizures.

  • Despite all the lies and deceit by health official worldwide, the question “do vaccines cause autism” was answered after the Hannah  Poling story broke in the USA in February 2008 [see CHS article here].  Hannah developed an autistic condition after 9 vaccines administered the same day.  Under the media spotlight numerous US health officials and agencies conceded on broadcast US nationwide TV news from CBS and CNN. Full details with links to the original sources can be found in this CHS article: Vaccination Causes Autism – Say US Government & Merck’s Director of Vaccines. [Blue Text added 10 April 2011]
  • It is much more than autism.
  • We need well-designed properly powered large-scale studies comparing vaccinated to unvaccinated for all health outcomes by truly independent objective unbiased scientists – and including proper clinical data.
  • Too many government officials and medical professionals with links to the vaccine makers and the drug industry and their own conflicts of interest refuse to carry out the studies – the inference is they know the studies will not favour their view or else there would be no reason not to carry them out – the studies would settle the matter
  • Their only answer is to create the myth by label libel of an “anti-vaccine movement” and silence all critics.

  • It is the drug industry changing its business model from the one the financial markets have long known was failing – of blockbuster patented drugs – to others including one like that which made Bill Gates billions – pretty much everyone must have Microsoft’s Windows  software on their computer and everyone must be vax’ed
  • Money v Child Health Safety.

End of story (sadly)

CONCLUSIONS

The vaccinated to unvaccinated comparison studies must be done – there is no reason not to and every reason to do them.

The problem can only be resolved politically but the big players in the drug industry have applied their financial resources to develop and entrench their influence at all levels in the medical professions, in universities and Government over many years.

Only by educating parents, professionals and the media on a large scale can the political machine be directed to address the issues and the problem.

UK Compulsory Vaccination Imminent

STOP PRESS – SEE UPDATE 24 June: No UK Compulsory MMR [Government U-Turns Amid Drug Industry Links]

Dawn Primarolo MP for Bristol South since 1987

UK Health Minister Dawn Primarolo signed the new law

Contrary to assurances given by the UK Government to leading politicians, fears earlier this year that the Government is moving to make the  vaccination schedule compulsory for British citizens [including children] without reference to Parliament, and without public debate seem to be being borne out.

New law introduced by the backdoor in January this year obliges the Secretary of State for Health to implement  any recommendations of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation: [Government Hands Drug Industry Control of Vaccination].

Under the new law, the JCVI is now asking [full quote below]:-

  • what exactly ‘right’ meant [under the new NHS constitution] with respect to the right of a child to receive a vaccine when their parents were opposed to vaccination and

 

  • how the constitution affected the recommendations of the JCVI with respect to legal challenge.’

In other words, if a parent does not want a child vaccinated but the JCVI have recommended all children be vaccinated, the JCVI are asking can their recommendation be challenged by the parent. It would seem once they have their answer, they will decide whether or not to make their recommendation.  This appears one step from compulsory vaccination for children regardless of parental views or concerns.

If the JCVI decide to make their recommendation, and a legal case ensues this might mean a Guardian is appointed by the State to represent the interests of the child and through the Guardian sue its own parents to insist on the “right” to be vaccinated as mandated by the JCVI.  The parents would in effect be forced to defend the case against their own child brought through the Guardian to oppose their own child being vaccinated.  Once the first case was decided, the matter would be settled in practical terms for all UK parents.

Thus the UK appears to be on the verge of ‘1984’ style legislation and guidelines in which freedoms are taken away from citizens framed in terms of rights granted.  And this has happened without political or public debate, scrutiny or democratic vote.

The newly published draft minutes for the JCVI in February disclose that the new status granted it by Health Minister Dawn Primarolo by executive order in January seem designed to tie up with unmentioned provisions in the new National Health Service Constitution.

According to the JCVI minutes the new NHS constitution states:

‘You have the right to receive the vaccinations that the Joint Committee on Vaccinations and Immunisation recommend that you should receive under an NHS provided national immunisation programme.’

And:

‘You should participate in important public health programmes such as vaccination.’

The minutes state:

‘The JCVI was pleased the recommendations of the committee would have the force of law behind it. The committee asked for clarification on the constitution including what exactly ‘right’ meant with respect to the right of a child to receive a vaccine when their parents were opposed to vaccination and how the constitution affected the recommendations of the JCVI with respect to legal challenge.’

Irrespective of any claimed benefits of  a vaccine programme the constitutional implications of this change are concerning.

The JCVI is by law now a law unto itself and flexing its muscles despite a history of disregard for safety issues over the past 20 years and more.

It is unclear what ultimate responsibility the JCVI bears for its actions, or if any sanctions apply to it.  The criterion for recommendations by the JCVI is purely  on “cost-effectiveness” not safety – a re-statement of the committee’s defective historical remit.  JCVI members have financial and professional associations with vaccine manufacturers.  No action has been taken to curb this.

Any ordinary concept of legality appears subverted, and power ceded to industry insiders.

This has taken place without democratic reference: compulsory vaccination is not part of any party’s policy and it has never been debated in Parliament.

If this is going to happen at all there should be extensive consultations, safeguards, debate and a vote. Everyone concerned about this matter should urgently contact their MP, whose address can be found here http://tinyurl.com/ljxtgv .

The Problem With Compulsory Vaccination

Firstly, do vaccines cause autistic conditions?  If you read nothing else we strongly recommend you read this: PDF Download – Text of May 5th 2008 email from US HRSA to Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News].  In it the US Health Resources Services Administration [HRSA] state to CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkission

We have compensated cases in which children exhibited an encephalopathy, or general brain disease. Encephalopathy may be accompanied by a medical progression of an array of symptoms including autistic behavior, autism, or seizures.

Despite all the lies and deceit by health official worldwide, the question “do vaccines cause autism” was answered after the Hannah  Poling story broke in the USA in February 2008 [see CHS article here].  Hannah developed an autistic condition after 9 vaccines administered the same day.  Under the media spotlight numerous US health officials and agencies conceded on broadcast US nationwide TV news from CBS and CNN. Full details with links to the original sources can be found in this CHS article: Vaccination Causes Autism – Say US Government & Merck’s Director of Vaccines. [Blue Text added 10 April 2011]

The main concern with compulsory vaccination is that we are already causing more serious health problem than the ones we are supposed to be addressing.  For example:-
  • though well-known in the drug industry vaccines cause allergy the House of Lords Select Committee Report on Allergy contains no reference to this;
  • UK asthma is bigger now than all childhood infectious disease would be without vaccines [statistics below];

The answer of Baroness Finlay who chaired the Lord’s committee is in summary – “we consulted widely and no one told us“.

Adjuvants are an ingredient in all vaccines and cause allergy. US biotech company BioSante’s CEO, Steve Simes said on the launch of their new adjuvant:-

The problem with most adjuvants is that they can cause allergies,” said Simes. “Ours might not be as potent as others, but it is safer.”

Last Update: 3:45 PM ET Apr 24, 2006

The drug industry has created a quasi-religious belief in the importance of vaccines such that criticism is not permitted.

Asthma statistics:-

  • 1 death every seven hours
  • 1400 deaths pa
  • 21 every year are children
  • 500 are adults under 65
  • 5.2 million UK people affected
    • 4.1 million adults
    • 1.1 million children
  • 1 hospital admission every 7.5 minutes
  • tens of thousands are debilitated by serious asthma
  • 12.7 million working days a year are lost due to asthma –
    • this is a triple whammy – we lose three times over – in productivity, increased burden of welfare benefits and oncost in NHS services
    • asthma costs the NHS £889 million every year

[/source]Asthma is not the only example of the problem nor are adjuvants the only cause of allergy in vaccines. The overarching issue is public and child health safety on a rational scientific and medical expert analysis and no other kind.  Instead we see label-libel of critics as “anti-vaccine” [but see “

There Is No “Anti-Vaccine” Movement"].

And why is this happening.  The drug industry has been changing its business models from one the financial markets have long known was failing – “blockbuster” patented drugs – to others including one which made Bill Gates billions – pretty much everyone must have Microsoft’s Windows  software on their computer and everyone must be vax’ed.  The financial lure for the drug industry is the biggest it has ever had.

Compulsory Vaccination For A Non-existent “Pandemic”

Whatever happened in Mexico it was no pandemic [but it was hype] and here is France’s reaction:-

And all this is for a ‘flu pandemic which does not exist and which official disease statistics show [unlike now] when one did occur in 1918 it was at a time when all disease mortality was high and which indicates strongly will never happen again:
