Vaccine Maker GlaxoSmithKline To Gain US$480,000,000 From Causing Narcolepsy in 800 Children With Its Flu Vaccine

This is how vaccines “work” [for the drug industry].  The Daily Sheeple has an excellent article on this which we recommend you read:  Big Pharma Gives Another Child Narcolepsy via the Swine Flu Vax, Then Cures It with a New Miracle Drug That Costs Over $20K per Year.

Here we provide some further and related information.

Back in 2009 British and European children were given a rapidly approved flu vaccine during a false scare by the World Health Organisation about an alleged swine flu pandemic: Children Risk Untested Flu Vaccines In Hyped Pandemic.  The WHO’s irresponsible conduct over the scare caused a world-wide panic.  Vaccine maker GlaxoSmithKline was able to fast-track the alleged swine flu vaccine called Pandemrix through the drug approvals processes effectively untested. It was to be given first in priority to children and pregnant women. 

The alleged vaccine was later found to cause narcolepsy in children: Children Get Narcolepsy From Flu Vaccine – Confirmed in British Medical Journal.  It has also been associated with causing miscarriage and stillbirth: Flu Vaccine Caused 3587 US Miscarriages & Stillbirths.

Narcolepsy is a potentially fatal condition in particular because it causes sufferers to fall asleep without warning or to become unable to move whilst conscious – so driving a car is out of the question for sufferers.

Now the same vaccine maker GlaxoSmithKline has come up with a way of making at least US$480,000,000 over 30 years according  to an estimate by The Daily Sheeple’s staff writer Daisy Luther. The true figure may however be at least ten times and up to fifty times more than that estimate.  This is because adverse drug reactions are notoriously highly under-reported and difficult to prove: Reporting adverse drug reactions A guide for healthcare professionals May 2006 BMA Board of Science.

And this figure is for just the one year and just for the one vaccine.  Imagine how much money the drug industry can make selling treatments for chronic lifetime conditions caused in children by vaccines [and notice that it will always be lifetime treatments never cures].

The maximum UK government total lifetime compensation for the most severe injuries caused to any individual by a vaccine is currently US$200,000 [ie. UK £120,000 sterling].

The Dutch Parliament investigated allegations WHO’s false health scare panic was caused by one man with drug industry connections on the WHO committee which promoted the false scare. Professor Albert Osterhaus of the Erasmus University in Rotterdam Holland was the key expert on WHO’s SAGE committee.  It was alleged he was also involved in starting the previous international worldwide scares over SARS and bird flu which also were false alarms and that with his drug industry financial interests he stood to gain substantially: WHO “Swine Flu Pope” Under Investigation by F. William Engdahl, author of Full Spectrum Dominance. December 8, 2009.

The Dutch Parliament’s investigation was inconclusive.

WHO’s SAGE committee was at the time chaired by the UK’s Head of Immunisation, Professor David Salisbury assisted by Professor Elizabeth Miller.  So it seems that some or all of the blame for the fake swine flu scare can be laid at the feet of Professor Salisbury for failing to ensure his committee issued reliable unbiased information.

Professor Salisbury’s retirement as the UK’s Head of Immunisation was reported in the draft October 2013 minutes of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation.  His name did not appear in lists published annually by the British media of honours conferred [notionally] by the Queen of England [but in fact compiled by the British Government].

10 Camels die in Nagaur, India. Villagers blame vaccination – [Of course they cannot possibly be right. They are just villagers.]

Some of our regular readers might find this of interest:  10 Camels die in Nagaur, villagers blame vaccination The Times of India Jan 9, 2014

Quick, contact the US CDC and ask them to hire Dr Poul Thorsen to do one of his statistical studies to prove this has nothing to do with Camel vaccines and is probably caused by the camels getting too much ice-cream.

Next we will hear from some of the animal rights lobby saying what a disgrace it is camels may have been harmed and who are always very concerned about Tiddles the Cat getting harmed in the slightest way but we don’t seem to hear from them when it comes to children and vaccines.  Odd thing that, don’t you think?

Who is betting this story gets more hits from animal rights activists than any other in the history of the internet?  [Just kidding.  No really.  Honest to God.]

Here is an excerpt:

When contacted, doctor Dinesh Sharma, joint director, animal husbandry, Nagaur, said, “After the investigations it was found that the camel died of Tripnosomesis, a disease that is very common in chilly winters. In this season, Nagaur had even registered minimum temperatures below 0 degree Celsius.”

On the claims of the farmers that the vaccination proved fatal to the camels, Sharma, said, “Had it been the case, similar deaths would have been reported across the state as the camp is being organised throughout the state. Every year camels die of the disease and there is nothing unusual.

New US TV Comedy Show – US Centers for Disease Control & Its Disease Estimates

To help you remember to make sure anyone you dislike should be pressured into getting the ‘flu shot, read this:

Piers Morgan Very Sick Days After USA TV Flu Shot Stunt Backfires – Piers Told “Don’t Ever Take A Flu Shot Again”

Having been caught claiming without foundation that its estimates show flu causes 36,000 US deaths annually [when a gross fabrication] it looks like the US Centers for Disease Control has changed tack.  The CDC seems to have stopped pushing in the media overall deaths from its news releases to bolster its claim Americans need flu vaccine and moved on to use less easily publicly checkable figures.  That includes cherry-picking alleged child deaths “reported to the CDC” and claiming they were from flu – 169 deaths in a population of 314 million souls.

In comparison:

USA’s 4th Leading Cause of Death – Pharma’s Drugs.

The CDC was officially castigated by the US Senate in an official report CDC Off Centeras an agency which “cannot demonstrate it is controlling disease“  but which was managing to spend US$11 billion in US tax dollars every year not doing what even its name says it is supposed to – Center for Disease Control.

Check out the smiling faces paid for by US tax dollars $$$$$ of CDC Director Thomas Frieden, MD, MPH and Anne Schuchat, MD, director of CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases in this summary news report of the recent CDC flu “news”:

Dr Ben Goldacre’s Internet Bullies Given OK To Launch Attacks On Their Own Blogs – And Told To Shut Up On His BadScience Forum

Here you can watch in real time as some of Dr Ben Goldacre’s BadScience Internet forum members agree together to engage across the internet in what will likely be their usual formula of personal abuse, disparagement, harassment and defamation.

They have been told to shut up on Dr Ben Goldacre’s BadScience Forum about this CHS article posted three days ago:

Patient Committed Suicide After His Doctor Was Hounded By Dr Ben Goldacre’s Badscience Forum Internet Bullies

So having been told to shut up on Dr Ben Goldacre’s BadScience Forum, they are being told it is OK to go onto their own blogs where they will no doubt engage in Google bombing the internet about this.

Here you can see it being discussed on Dr Ben Goldacre’s BadScience forum, [subject of course to postings being deleted or posting terminated once this CHS article is posted]:

Dr Ben Goldacre’s BadScience Forum Comment Thread: ”Patient Commits Suicide After His Doctor Hounded By..”

The CHS article above is about just one suicide linked to the internet activities of some of the members of Dr Ben Goldacre’s BadScience Forum.  It is not the only suicide of an individual subjected to years of relentless internet attacks by some of Dr Ben Goldacre’s BadScience Forum members.

The article exposes what Dr Ben Goldacre has been allowing on his BadScience internet forum for years – very serious organised orchestrated internet bullying, abuse, disparagement, harassment and defamation on an internet wide scale against individuals who have differing perspectives from his members and associates.

Additionally, it is clear from this and other evidence that Dr Ben Goldacre is allowing his BadScience forum to be used in this manner.  He has had previous warnings which are documented.

Harassment whether on the internet or elsewhere is apparently illegal and can attract stiff penalties following laws introduced to the UK to counter serious problems of stalking and harassment of celebrities and private individuals.  And this clearly has the look of the usual orchestrated harassment by agreement which under wholly separate legal provisions CHS understands can also be unlawful and attract stiff penalties.

Or should Dr Goldacre be exempt from acting responsibly or above the law?

The BadScience Forum webpage linked to above keeps changing and some comments have been removed already and some are still being added.

In case of further deletions here is an exchange showing they have been told to shut up:

Further to this: I was a bit worried we hadn’t been quite careful enough, so I’ve quarantined a couple of posts. I might be being overcautious. I’ll ask the other mods to take a look at teh quarantined posts.

Soz.

I apologise for inadvertently posting about this. I didn’t realise what was going on (but I have since received PMs from three people explaining the situation).

And here is why they are being told to shut up on Dr Ben Goldacre’s BadScience Forum:

This. Anybody feel free to PM me for discussion of the background to this situation.

Here is a post encouraging Dr Ben Goldacre’s BadScience Forum members to blog about these matters on their own blogs across the internet instead of on Dr Goldacre’s BadScience forum:

Yes, there is. The last time this came up it was almost the end of this forum. Personally, I like it here, and I don’t want it to become more trouble to the curly-haired one than it’s worth.

I think we should take the advice previously given, and repeated by duck, that if we want to address the issues raised we should take it to our own blogs.

Patient Committed Suicide After His Doctor Was Hounded By Dr Ben Goldacre’s Badscience Forum Internet Bullies – Perpetrator’s Mild Two Year Cautionary Sentence Only Just Ended December 2013

[STOP PRESS 4 Jan 2014 @15:02: Dr Ben Goldacre’s Internet Bullies Given OK To Launch Attacks On Their Own Blogs – And Told To Shut Up On His BadScience Forum. This new CHS article is published because since the CHS article below was published CHS has obtained information showing some people will not take notice even when it is spelt out clearly for them.]

A patient committed suicide after an anonymous malicious complaint was made by Stuart Jones to the UK’s General Medical Council about the patient’s treating physician, a disciplinary tribunal was told.  Stuart Jones [Registration Number: CS17316] was at the time a member of Dr Ben Goldacre’s BadScience Forum and was a clinical scientist at the Queens Hospital, Romford, UK. The physician concerned sometimes employed treatment methods which were not those conventionally employed by others but which apparently reaped benefits for patients.

After making the complaint to the GMC about the patient’s doctor, Stuart Jones wrote on May 19th 2010 on Dr Ben Goldacre’s BadScience Forum to other forum members:

Yup, that’s exactly why I complained actually, to give SM a bucket load of administration to wade through and increase anxiety levels in her patients, very pleasurable in deed!”

The patient, who was suffering with chronic fatigue syndrome at the time [also known as ME] killed himself, according to evidence from his doctor, because he mistakenly believed his doctor was no longer allowed to treat him: ‘Deluded quack’ jibe nearly ruined doctor’s career, Daily Telegraph, 21 December 2011.

Members of Dr Ben Goldacre’s Badscience Forum are encouraged by Dr Ben Goldacre to take direct action and get involved.  This has included some members launching online attacks on medical professionals who employ treatment modalities others in mainstream medicine do not. BadScience Forum members are also encouraged to make complaints to a large number of regulatory bodies all the time.

In fact Dr Goldacre encourages his BadScience Forum members to get very, very involved:

The time for talking has passed. I draw the line at kidnapping, incidentally.”

Dr Ben Goldacre has practised as a psychiatrist and is a columnist for the UK’s Guardian newspaper where his column, which appears infrequently now, is devoted to what he calls BadScience.

Stuart Jones’ complaint resulted in the temporary suspension by the GMC of the patient’s doctor.

The GMC prosecution of the deceased patient’s treating doctor was dropped abruptly by the GMC.  By 22nd August 2011 the GMC advised the Doctor all charges had been dropped – [see chonology at end of this article]. 

Stuart Jones was in turn prosecuted by the Health and Care Professions Council.  He was subjected to a very minor punishment of merely a two-year Caution Order.  The two year caution order was imposed in December 2011 but will remain on the register until 18th January this year.

Between 1st March 2009 and 26th October 2010 Stuart Jones, posting anonymously on Dr Ben Goldacre’s BadScience Forum as “Jonas“, made numerous disparaging remarks about the patient’s treating physician.

The career of the patient’s doctor was nearly destroyed in addition to the patient taking his own life in despair at the thought of not getting effective treatment after Stuart Jones described the patient’s doctor as a ‘deluded, pill-peddling quack’ the disciplinary tribunal hearing was told. Stuart Jones also wrote on the BadScience website that the patient’s doctor, who specialises in treating chronic fatigue syndrome, “lulled patients into a dangerous world of make-believe pseudo-science”.  The Health Professions Council heard evidence that Jones’ messages were “defamatory, derogatory and disparaging” and had a detrimental effect on the doctor’s professional and personal life.

Dr Ben Goldacre’s BadScience Forum was flooded with 10,000 posts responding to Jones’ initial message in April 2010.

Evidence at the hearing from the patient’s doctor was:

In fact, there was one patient in particular who thought because I had been suspended I could no longer could be consulted. I don’t know if this happened directly as a result of that but the man deteriorated and he actually committed suicide. That’s just one example of how one patient was very seriously affected. I don’t know if that’s directly as part of Mr Jones’ blogging but it resulted.

Causing a patient to commit suicide by vicious bullying of the patient’s treating doctor specifically to “increase anxiety levels” in the victim doctor’s patients is apparently not a sufficiently serious crime to warrant more than a 2 year “caution” for the Health and Care Professions Council.

Although no charges were brought against the patient’s doctor by the GMC and the doctor was never called before the GMC, aborted investigations in 2006/07 cost the GMC £136,692.12 in solicitors’ fees and disbursements and a possible further £500,000 on internal costs – according to a report on a website set up to support the patient’s doctor by patients and wellwishers.

The GMC is funded by a levy paid by all medical doctors registered in the UK.

It appears also no action has been taken by the GMC regarding Dr Goldacre’s BadScience Forum activities.

The GMC is meant to act on patient complaints. The GMC is an unusual organisation as this previous CHS post demonstrates:

CHRONOLOGY [6 Jan 2014]: This is a chronology of some of what the poor doctor has had to face at the hands of the General Medical Council.

Compare what follows with the case of Dr Jane Barton.

With Barton the police investigated 92 deaths over 12 years [no criminal charges were brought].  An inquest found ten of 12 deaths followed excessive doses of morphine. Dr Barton was neither struck off nor suspended but simply had restrictions to prescribe certain drugs imposed on her.  This GMC decision came on January 29th 2010.

What The GMC Did To This Doctor

Remember at all times that no patient was harmed.  Patients benefited and praised the Doctor and none were put at risk.

Nov 2002: five day GMC fitness to practice hearing scheduled to take place. Five complaints only from doctors, none from patients. No patient harmed, put at risk, nor any malpractice.  Complaints objected to doctor’s style of practice and the allergy, environmental, nutritional approach to medicine.

Oct 2002: hearing postponed to Feb 2003 and extended 8 days for eight complaints.

Jan 2003: Feb hearing cancelled – no proper explanation.  Hearing was cancelled because at least one allegation was fabricated, one based on untrue facts and patients had refused to co-operate.

April 2007:  new set of allegations & new hearing proposed.  Again, includes complaints only from doctors and who do not like the style of practice. No patient harmed or put at risk. Now extended also to complaints about website.

July 2007: 10 day General Medical Council (GMC) fitness to practice hearing scheduled to take place Sept 2007.

That hearing later postponed and proposed as a thirteen day hearing in February 2008.

Oct 2007: GMC drop all charges.

Aug 2009: Aug 12th GMC had been found out removing documentary evidence supporting the accused Doctor.

Apr 2010: Apr 2nd anonymous complaint received from GMC by Doctor [complaint from Stuart Jones].

April 2010: Thurs 8th April GMC orders Doctor to attend “Interim Orders Panel” for following Monday 12th April.  IOP is to make no decision about validity of complaint – an “interim” hearing only.

April 2010: April 9th – hearing postponed to April 29th.

April 2010: April 29th IOP hearing of unsubstantiated anonymous complaint [from Stuart Jones].  IOP hearing is not concerned if allegations are true but with whether to impose an order to protect public if the allegations were found to be true.  GMC interim panel decided there was a “potential risk to public safety” so imposed an interim order.  [Compare the Barton case above where Barton’s patients died after morphine overdoses, inquests & police investigations with this one where patients benefitted from Dr’s treatments & supported Doc.  Barton’s patients were in no condition to complain.]

Dec 2011: Over 1 1/2 years later yet another IOP hearing.

Jan 2011: Temporary suspension lifted.

Aug 2011: 1st Aug all sanctions lifted.

Aug 2011: 22nd Aug all charges dropped.  GMC cancels Fitness to Practice Hearing [scheduled for November 2011] and advises there is no case to answer.  Dr reinstated on the General Medical Council Register.

Dec 2011:  20th Dec Stuart Jones found guilty by HCPC.

Oct 2012: Despite serious charges of professional misconduct against the doctor being dropped the GMC continued its long victimisation of this courageous Dr.  But this time regarding charges concerning the content of her website.  The first expert witness the GMC picked to give evidence did not give them the answer they wanted.  His evidence was:

Dr Hr stated that he did not consider that you were acting inappropriately although he considered that your reference to ‘dangerous medicine’ was inappropriate. He added the caveat that you should ensure that the information given should be accurate and not alarmist. Overall, he considered that your actions were appropriate and of a reasonable competent standard.

So the GMC commissioned two more experts to address the website content and they decided it was not appropriate.

Instead of being struck from the medical register the Dr was given a “warning”.

— THE END — [for the moment]
