Unsafe Vaccines & Corruption In Medical Journal Publishing

If you want proof of how corrupt medical publishing has become – read on. A long list of citations of medical journal papers claimed to be evidence vaccines are safe and do not cause autistic conditions has been posted on the blog of Seth Mnookin.

Mnookin, a journalist, vaccine/autism denialist and author of an anti-vaccine-safety book “The Panic Virus”, refuses to answer CHS’ challenge [here] about and remains silent in response to the following documented public facts.

But firstly, do vaccines cause autistic conditions?  If you read nothing else we strongly recommend you read this PDF Download:– Text of 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.[Blue Text added 10 April 2011]

US government health organisations, officials and the US Federal Court have several times confirmed vaccines cause autistic conditions. These powerful reluctantly made admissions were made despite what is claimed to be evidence from medical journals.  This can only happen because government health officials know the true position and the published medical journal evidence base is corrupt and corrupted:-

  • The US Health Resources Services Administration has confirmed vaccines can cause autistic conditions;
  • Merck’s current Director of Vaccines Division confirmed vaccines can cause autistic conditions – and that was when she was the Head of the US Centers for Disease Control.
  • Autistic conditions can be caused by multiple vaccines as was conceded by the US Department of Health and Human Services in the Hannah Poling case.
  • Autistic conditions can result from acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) following MMR vaccination as held by the US Federal Court in the case of Bailey Banks.
  • The increase in autistic conditions, diabetes, childhood asthma and obesity can only be caused by environmental factors as was confirmed by the current Director of the US National Institutes of Health and leading geneticist Dr Francis Collins in evidence to Congress when he was head of the Human Genome Project.
  • The prevalence of autistic conditions in children in the USA is approximately 1 in 100 and in the UK it is 1 in 64.
  • The cost to the UK has been estimated to be £28 billion per annum.

For the full details and references documenting these facts read this CHS post:-

Vaccination Causes Autism – Say US Government & Merck’s Director of Vaccines

We reproduce here the full list of papers posted on Mnookin’s blog.  If you want to see how poor these journal papers are as evidence of anything, check out the CHS article on a couple of them – the Honda/Rutter paper and the Tozzi paper.  The Tozzi paper is a direct example of fraud by the US Centers for Disease Control spending US tax dollars commissioning a paper to a study design they knew from the outset would produce a negative result:-

  1. Thanks for this summary, CHS.

    The Verstraeten study, laundered until it came up with the desired ‘signal’, ie, lack thereof; the Madsen study out of Denmark, and the Fombonne study out of Canada, both analyzed to the point of establishing that their ‘methodological flaws’ were so blatant as to be purposeful – why should anybody trust any study sponsored by the establishment? The only studies that should be given any credence should be ones from truly independent sources. If there is any such a thing, with the takeover of university research bodies by the corporate world leaving dirty fingerprints all over their results. Time to concentrate on definitive studies between vaccinated and non-vaccinated cohorts – and NOT ‘vaccinated against placebo’, which has proven to be a con concept. What an outrageous state of affairs, this whole ugly chapter on western medicine.

    Keep up the good work exposing, and reporting on, all this, CHS.

  2. Seth Mnookin is an ex Heroin addict. Why would anyone listen to him (or buy his silly book)?

    Harvard and heroin
    I coasted to an Ivy League degree as a drug addict, but forever damaged the bond between mother and son.
    BY SETH MNOOKIN-AUG 27, 1999

    “I had friends who smoked pot and seemed to love it as much as I did, friends who discussed their highs in loving detail. Some of these same friends were also obsessive and couldn’t sleep and walked around a bundle of nerves. But none of my friends reacted the same way I did to that first time. Within a week of trying pot, I was smoking it every day. Within a couple of months, five and six times a day. Within a year, I was selling it, and using other drugs to try to pick me up or slow me down: cocaine, mescaline, LSD, speed, prescription painkillers. Two or three days a week I would drink as well, usually a six-pack or so of beer. I knew this wasn’t normal; I knew that I was an “alcoholic” or a “drug addict” or whatever label described my behavior. But this didn’t bother me. I just accepted it. Here I am, Seth Mnookin, teenager, budding writer, drug addict and alcoholic.”

    Heroin and ad hominem attacks
    By Seth Mnookin
    Posted: April 22, 2011

    This morning when I turned on my computer, I was greeted with an article on Age of Autism written by the founder of Generation Rescue, the group Jenny McCarthy currently runs. The article focuses on the fact that for the last thirteen-and-a-half years, I have been a recovering heroin addict. It implies that my credibility among other journalists is because my “heroin-chic background” gives me a “stamp of street-cred in an oddly P.C. world.”

    “Before becoming a writer, Mr. Mnookin was fired from a “gopher gig” at Office Depot, worked as a day laborer digging ditches, and also worked at a coffee shop, a liquor store, and several bookstores “never lasting at any job for more than a couple of weeks” … Soon after graduating from Harvard, Mr. Mnookin became a heroin addict … I sure wouldn’t hire Mr. Mnookin in one of my companies, let him watch my kids, or go to him for parenting advice. He was a garden-variety junkie who stole money from friends and family, sorry.”

    blogs.plos.org/thepanicvirus/2011/04/22/heroin-and-ad-hominem-attacks/

    I sure wouldn’t look to this guy for parenting advice either.
