CBS News – Research Links Kids Vaccines & Brain Damage

A new scientific safety study by British researchers Dr Laura Hewitson and Dr Andrew Wakefield shows US children’s vaccines are linked to brain damage: Delayed Acquisition of Neonatal Reflexes in Newborn Primates Receiving A Thimerosal-containing Hepatitis B Vaccine: influence of gestational age and birth weight Journal of NeuroToxicology

See video links below to CBS interviews with Dr Andrew Wakefield on this new study and the controversy over the MMR vaccine and autism. CBS reportsCould Hepatitis B Vaccine Be Harmful?” CBS News – ‎Oct 7, 2009‎

And 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 Attkisson

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]

An earlier September 2008 study by other independent researchers found that US boys who received the hepatitis B vaccine had a 9 times higher chance of developmental disabilities than unvaccinated boys.  Disturbingly this appears to be the only formally published safety study comparing vaccinated to unvaccinated human individuals: Hepatitis B triple series vaccine and developmental disability in US children aged 1-9 years Toxicological and Environmental Chemistry, September 2008 Carolyn Gallagher and Melody Goodman

CBS interview: Dr Andrew Wakefield on the MMR vaccine and autism controversy:-

CBS News has found that since 1988, the vaccine court has awarded money judgments, often in the millions of dollars, to thirteen hundred and twenty two families whose children suffered brain damage from vaccines: [Vaccine Court: Autism Debate Continues – Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and David Kirby Huffington Post 24 Feb 2009]

In many … cases, the government paid out awards following a judicial finding that vaccine injury lead to the child’s autism spectrum disorder …. the plaintiffs’ attorneys ….. electing to …. argue their autism cases in the regular vaccine court. …. to steer clear of the hot button autism issue altogether and seek recovery instead for the underlying brain damage that caused their client’s autism.”

    This article has been withdrawn at the request of the editor. The Publisher apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause.

    [ED: First – interesting that we get from NZ Minstry of Health’s Chief Advisor Child and Youth Health posting this comment when we put up a story last week widely reported in the media about Australia’s chief medical officer saying health professionals should immediately stop immunising children under five years old with the flu vaccine because it is dangerous:-
    “Don’t give children flu jab” says chief medical officer

    Second, give us all one scientific reason why this paper was withdrawn. And to remind you what the paper is telling everyone you can read it here:-
    CBS News – Research Links Kids Vaccines & Brain Damage

    You will not be able to provide a single scientific reason because there are none.

    So why is the New Zealand Ministry of Health so interested in suppressing information about vaccines which are dangerous to child health safety? Please tell us all. Do it now.

    Should you not instead be concerned to protect all our children from dangerous pharmaceuticals?

    Guess not.]

  5. Dr Tuohy, you of all people understand “wheels within wheels”. After all, you are a master spinner of them yourself. And as we all know, “the Devil is in the detail”.

    Wakefield said, on an interesting You-tube presentation

    …that a colleague requested a (legitimate) reason from the editor of the journal. as to why the article had gone through peer review, been passed and stamped as accepted – and was then suddenly removed.

    The colleague was referred to the head of Elsevier.

    Now, doesn’t he happen to have a very close affiliation with GSK?

    Forget the monkeys for a moment. There’s one surety in my mind, Dr Tuohy, beyond having to pay taxes and dying, and that is, that any sensible study, or monitorring approach to defining actual vaccine safety by comparing vaccinated CHILDREN with unvaccinated CHILDREN, will either be tossed out just as this article was; watered down, or rendered impotent, so that parents, particularly those whose children have serious reactions – such as to Gardasil – will never get a fair go.

    You, and the NZ MOH have stonewalled that possibility repeatedly since 1988. Why is that?

    The questions now in my mind are – instead of you hunting down and wet blanketing discussion on valid scientific concepts…, “What are you prepared to do on your shift, Dr Tuohy, to look at the real health, safety and welfare of ALL children, both unvaccinated and vaccinated.”?

    You sat there to my left during my oral submission in Auckland, on 15th April 2010, during which I offered a workable solution which could address the very questions which the study above addressed. The full text to back up my oral submission is here:

    Since you are the NZ Ministry of Health’s chief advisor, will you do anything “on your watch” to help answer that question so that parents like the Renatas, can resolve these issues?

    You issued a warning today about the flu vaccine for babies, and said there had only been three cases in New Zealand. Did you as the MOH advisor to parliament, read the only trial on that vaccine aka NOLAN/JAMA?

    If so, why didn’t it concern you that in the under-3’s, amongst 162 children, 7 had fevers severe enough to contraindicate the next shot and most of them were hospitalized?

    Does it not concern you that on page 45 of that article, the authors said that the

    ***”highly immunogenic nature” of the vaccine “may be related to specific antigen characteristics of this novel virus, which have yet to be determined”?***

    Does it bother you, that you advised the injection into babies, of an uncharacterized antigen, about which the researchers understood NOTHING, and which they had not determined HOW it affected the immune system – which threw high fevers in 7 out of 162 babies in the only trial done on this vaccine?

    Extrapolate that percentage of reactions over Australia – read the comments on all the newspapers allowing comments, and you can see that the problem is now far larger than the Australian Medical Association is officially admitting to.

    And given the contact I’ve had with parents of babies here, I’d also suggest that the numbers you admitted to in the newspapers here, aren’t even the tip of the iceberg of high fevers in New Zealand either.

    You can give lip service in papers, to advising all parents and doctors to report to CARM, but you know as well as I do – and it’s borne out by parents comments to me – that the standard automated response from surgeries in this country is that fevers after vaccines are normal. They are never reported. Parents are advised, as per the slips given to them after most vaccines…, “Just give PAMOL”.

    I think it’s time for you and the NZ MOH to get real about child health, welfare and safety – of ALL recipients of any vaccines.

    And parents of all children deserve to know whether or not vaccinated children have a higher rate of developmental delay and chronic health issues, than totally unvaccinated children.

    Never mind monkeys. You have it in your power today, to start a longtitudinal sentinel database – and expanded NIR – which would, over time, decide the answer to that question.

    But will you?


  6. P.S. “Mistake” above.

    Dr Tuohy,

    I said, “fevers are never reported”.

    I forgot. You said that….(my words, not yours) in the last few weeks, three reports of severe fevers actually managed, by the weight of gravity, to float down to Dunedin’s CARM.

    I’m sure, Dr Tuohy, you were around in the 1987 debacle that was the Menomune A campaign?

    Do you remember the report which CARM tabled as part of the Hep B working committee’s minutes which showed that when they compared doctors Menomume A reaction reports, with the parental hot line, only .9% – less than one percent – of all vaccine reactions – were reported by doctors?

    Is it any different today? I don’t think so.

    What would you find out, if you compared parent’s observations with those of the surgeries who carried FLUVAX here?

    Don’t you think that it should be required, that all surgeries who administed that vaccine to any babies, should be reporting back to you what happened in their surgeries?

    Not what they “thought” happened, but what “actually” happened?

    As in, checking their ring in logs, to find out if a parent rang about a high temperature and was given the usual pamol advice?

    As in asking all parents when they come in for the second (unnecessary – according to Nolan) shot, if their child was okay afterwards?

    Wouldn’t that be prudent?
