Vaccines Proven To Cause Sudden Death in Children – 67 Deaths Only Explicable As Caused By Vaccines – Drug Safety Regulators Had The Information for Over 2 Years And Let Children Die

This confirmation vaccines cause children to die suddenly was published this month on the US National Library of Medicine’s website.

For decades regulators and public health officials have insisted parents were wrong to blame vaccines when their children died suddenly shortly after vaccination.  It was coincidence they would say – nothing more. 

The deaths were no more than the number usually to be expected they would add.

But all the time drug safety regulators appear to have been holding the evidence.

A confidential 1271 page GSK document ordered recently by an Italian Court to be published shows that multiple vaccines cause sudden child deaths.  [The document is a formal confidential previously unpublished submission by GlaxoSmithKline to the European Medicines Agency from 2011 and 2012.]

The GSK document contains data about deaths occurring as a result of administration of Prevenar 13 vaccine [from Pfizer], Infanrix Hexa from GSK and some other vaccines.  Prevenar 13 is given to all British children.

The analysis has been published on the US National Library of Medicines website using the data GSK provided to the European Medicines Agency.  The data is conclusive.  It is very clear and there is no room for argument.

And the analysis is simple.  Anyone can understand it.  The very plain data the document contains proves the matter without any doubt whatsoever.

Here is the one of the points from the published analysis [but there is more to read online].  It is not rocket science but very simple to understand:

(Source: Table 36 The GlaxoSmithKline Biological Clinical Safety and Pharmacovigilance report to Regulatory Authority)…… if one analyses the data looking at deaths in first 10 days after administration of vaccine and compares it to the deaths in the next 10 days, it is clear that 97% of deaths (65 deaths) in the infants below 1 year, occur in the first 10 days and 3% (2 deaths) occur in the next 10 days. Had the deaths been coincidental SIDS deaths unrelated to vaccination, the numbers of deaths in the two 10 day periods should have been the same. Similarly in children older than 1 year, 87.5% deaths (7 deaths) occurred in the first 10 days and 12.5% (1 death) occurred in the next 10 days.

Here is the data presented in a way that the clustering of deaths can be seen clearly [click on the table to open a larger version in a new window]:
20150210 GSK PSUR 15+16 Infanrix Hexa Deaths

The clustering of deaths around the time of vaccination demonstrates a link between the vaccination and the sudden deaths. It indicates this is not by chance as otherwise the deaths would be spread across the entire 20 days. Rather than showing the total deaths each day, GlaxoSmithKline showed the cumulative figures which had the effect of disguising the clustering of deaths around vaccination. They did this by listing the cumulative number of deaths. So by day 19 after vaccination GSK’s total was 67 deaths. But there had only been two deaths in those last 10 days and not 67. In contrast 65 deaths occurred on the first day of vaccination up to the 10th day following vaccination.

And here you can see GSK’s Table 36.  The way it is prepared disguises the clustering of deaths around the time of vaccination – the total cumulative number of deaths up to 10 days from vaccination is 65.  That number over the next 10 days increases by only 2.  So in 10 days there were 65 deaths and between day 11 to day 20 after vaccination there were only another two deaths.  So only the vaccine can be the cause of this:

TABLE 36  20111216 GSK Infanrix Hexa Summary Bridging Report 16-12-2011

The worst aspect is that the Observed to Expected ratio of deaths reported compared to deaths expected if the vaccine was not the cause was based on numbers of doses.  As each child was meant to receive three doses and not one, the Expected number of deaths was based on a population three times greater than it was, calculated by how many doses of the vaccines were distributed as if each child received only one dose.

Further, the day of vaccination and the prior day is when the Healthy Vaccinee Effect is greatest.  In short on those days the chance of a vaccinated child having some other illness including one which might result in a sudden death is very low – and can be expected to be less than a 0.1 chance relatively.  This arises because parents tend to avoid having their child vaccinated when unwell.  Over the day of vaccination and succeeding six days  the chance of illness rises practically linearly to return to chance of 1 relatively.  The Expected calculation for the seven days starting on the day of vaccination relied on a correction of 0.8 which is several times higher than appropriate for the first few days following vaccination.  And no adjustment was made for under reporting of adverse events.

All of these factors resulted in the ratio of Observed deaths to those Expected calculated by GSK was much more than three times lower than it should have been. So for the day of vaccination with 16 observed deaths, substantially fewer than that would be expected.

This is how GSK presented their formula:

GSK OE Formula cropped

Here is a serious issue.  This kind of information is routinely provided to regulators like the MHRA but never made public.  On the one occasion such a document is published as a result of the actions of a judge in an Italian Court it is possible to show beyond any doubt that multiple vaccines cause sudden deaths in children.

This appears a serious failing of European regulators.

All the EU regulators including the MHRA have had this information for at least three years and failed to act on it.

Further, the MHRA has an agreement with the drug industry not to publish information like this despite the provisions of the UK Freedom of Information Act.

And here is an example of how slanted news reporting is.  The following report is not an independent objective balanced report of the facts:

Dawn Papple, Independent Outsourced Freelance Writer, Social Media Marketer, Independent Contractor

It is by someone called Dawn Papple apparently from the Greater Detroit Area USA who lists her working activities as Independent Outsourced Freelance Writer, Freelance Writer, Social Media Marketer, Graphic Designer, Independent Contractor.

This appears to be a somewhat racist press report, referring to the information being just from India and “the doctor from Delhi” [as if we can all ignore it] and claims the issue is being raised by “anti-vaccine” proponents.  It does not address properly the safety of children nor does it contain any proper overview of the real risks of disease for  children against the risks of vaccines nor why there are real causes for concern.

There is clearly an intentional bias.  Criticising the original edition of this CHS article, prior to this revision to review Papple’s report, Papple states:

The doctor who analyzed the data did not state that there was no room for argument, though. He did not brazenly state that the hexavalent Infanrix vaccine causes sudden death in babies.

It may not have been “brazen” as Papple writes emotionally, but it does look like he did and Papple knows that.  She wrote earlier in the article that the doctor stated:

this demonstrates a link between the vaccination event and the sudden deaths.”

Dawn Papple does not question whether the information GSK provided is reliable and downplays the way GSK disguised the clustering of deaths around the time of vaccination stating, as if it were the wrong approach [emphasis added]:

Rather than compounding the total deaths each day, as in the documents found online, the pediatrics doctor suggests we examine how many more deaths happened right after the vaccine was given compared to as the days went by. He said this demonstrates a link between the vaccination event and the sudden deaths.

A substantial omission from Dawn Papple’s article is she does not discuss that GSK has been caught, found guilty of and fined substantial sums of money for serious misconduct including paying up with the largest health fraud settlement in US history.  But Dawn Papple takes as true what GSK says compared to a doctor who with courage has reported publicly this problem with vaccine caused sudden deaths which GSK kept secret and reported in a disguised manner to the safety regulators. 

CHS has reported on GSK’s problems with fraud and the like before.  Here is an example:

GSK Fined US$3 BILLION – largest health fraud settlement in U.S. history

Remarkably, Papple claims this CHS article is by “an anti-vaccine advocate from Child Health Safety“.  She has no information to support such a spurious claim and when CHS is pro-safety, democracy and informed and free choice.  Papple it would seem is against.

Absent from the report is the issue that parents are told vaccines are entirely safe when they are not. Also absent from the report is the fact that vaccines are given to children the majority of whom especially in the western world are highly unlikely to suffer serious adverse effects of disease.

In other words normal healthy children are being given vaccines which can kill some of them who may never have a problem from the childhood diseases concerned, even if they caught them. 

The report also fails to address the fact that no effective treatments for basic well-known longstanding childhood diseases have been developed.  That is a scandal in the scientific 21st Century.  If there were effective treatments vaccines would not be needed.

So not only will the public will not get balanced information, here you can see attacks against the dissemination of information via social media.

With mainstream media reporting about vaccination issues being successfully made a near blackout except for reports promoting vaccines, this article shows how the next targets are likely to be shutting down social media and the internet for people to get information about vaccine issues.

Here from the report is a dubious claim which contradicts and downplays under-reporting of adverse vaccine reactions:

According to the statistics within the document, even if the doctor from Delhi’s fears are spot on, the risk of sudden death, while existent, would also be exceptionally rare after vaccination with the hexavalent Infanrix vaccine.”

Earlier in the report it refers to adverse vaccine reactions being under-reported but fails to explain how substantially under-reported they are.  So the information in the GSK document represents a small fraction of the problems of adverse vaccine reactions.

And interestingly, this article, seemingly reviewing the GSK document and many other publications also has been written in a very short space of time when the material concerned is extensive and would require a very long time to consider it.  It also contains no quotes from sources approached by the author, Dawn Papple, to support what she has written including the statements she makes as if of fact and the opinions she expresses [with no medical or scientific qualifications]. That is very poor journalism in our view.

The GSK document is 1271 pages alone.  Journalists normally do not have that kind of time.  This article is written by someone who describes her work as Independent Outsourced Freelance Writer, Freelance Writer, Social Media Marketer, Graphic Designer, Independent Contractor.

If you were to form the opinion that her publication http://www.inquisitr.com is trash journalism, you might be right and we would agree.

WARNING TO PARENTS – Protect Your Child From Another Clearly Dangerous Vaccine – HPV [Gardasil & Cervarix] – And The Common Corruption in Government Public Health Agencies

Here you can see at a glance why this vaccine should be withdrawn worldwide and ask yourself why do health officials promote such dangerous, ineffective, unaffordable and unnecessary vaccine programmes.  CHS has previously reported on this vaccine:

SaneVax is an international non-profit organization working with representatives in over 25 countries. SaneVax believes vaccines should be scientifically proven safe, affordable, necessary and effective.  The SaneVax Team say they cannot support HPV vaccination programs for the following reasons:

#1 HPV VACCINES ARE NOT SAFE

  • HPV vaccines account for nearly 25% of the reports on the USA’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database. VAERS was established in 1990. HPV vaccines were introduced 16 years later in mid-2006.  And there are over 80 other vaccines approved for use in the United States.  Since the introduction of HPV vaccines [including Gardasil and Cervarix]:

    • reports of Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis [ADEM] have increased over 1,000%;
    • infertility reports increased 790%;
    • reports of blindness increased 188%;
    • spontaneous abortions by 270%.
  • when 24,000 girls were injected with HPV vaccines during ‘demonstration projects’ an estimated 5% (1200) were left with chronic health problems and/or autoimmune disorders;
  • Japan withdrew the government recommendation for the administration of HPV vaccines after only 6 weeks when reports of adverse events after Gardasil were 26 times higher than the annual flu shot;
    • reports after Cervarix were 52 times higher than the annual flu shot;
    • 24.9% of the adverse events reported were considered serious.
  • Denmark reports that 24% of the adverse events reported after HPV vaccinations were considered serious.
  • adverse events reports in Italy are ten times higher than most other vaccines – at a rate of 219/100,000. The cervical cancer rate in Italy is 7.7/100,000.

#2 HPV VACCINES ARE NOT AFFORDABLE

  • HPV vaccination programs do not eliminate the need for pap screening, they simply add the price of 3 injections to already overburdened healthcare systems around the globe.
  • There is an already proven safe and effective method of controlling cervical cancer in most developed countries – pap screening and good gynecological follow-up. Countries without this practice in place would be money ahead to spend their healthcare budget developing the infrastructure to provide this type of care.
  • Cervical cancer causes 2.3 deaths/100,000 women in the United States. The cost of 3 doses of HPV vaccine for 100,000 women is an estimated $30,000,000 ($100/dose) to try and eliminate less than 3 deaths which could have been avoided with pap screening and good gynecological follow-up. How many medical professionals could be trained and/or medical facilities built with that same 30 million dollars?

#3 HPV VACCINES ARE NOT NECESSARY

  • The human papillomavirus has never been proven to cause cancer by itself. Other risk factors must also be present in order to prompt the development of cancer.
  • According to the World Health Organization, only 0.15% of all people exposed to any high-risk strain of HPV will ever develop cervical cancer. The vast majority of HPV ‘infections’ are benign and cause no medical problem whatsoever.
  • HPV type prevalence varies greatly from one region to the next. Are the HPV types targeted by current vaccines the same ones prevalent in your country?
  • There is no excuse for exposing the female population of the world to the risks involved with HPV vaccination when there is an already proven safe, affordable, necessary and effective means of controlling cervical cancer.

#4 HPV VACCINES ARE NOT EFFECTIVE

  • According to the World Health Organization, only 1% of CIN1 progresses to the next stage, only 1.5% of CIN2 progresses. Only 12% of CIN3 lesions, which are actually considered a pre-cursors to cancer. Nevertheless, the FDA allowed the manufacturers of HPV vaccines to use these often self-reversing abnormal lesions as endpoints to judge the efficacy of their products.
  • The other endpoint used to predict efficacy was antibody titers. No one has determined what level of antibodies is necessary to prevent HPV infections. It is simply assumed that the higher the antibody titer level, the better the potential protection.
  • HPV vaccines have not been clinically proven to prevent a single case of cancer.
  • There is no guarantee that eliminating one risk factor for the development of cervical cancer will have any impact on the disease incidence or mortality rate.
  • It will take more than 20 years to determine whether or not HPV vaccines perform as advertised.
  • There is no guarantee that any suppressed oncogenic HPV type will not mutate over the next 20 years and become more dangerous.

More US CDC Research Fraud – Publishing False Figures to Promote A Pointless Vaccine to The US and Third World

The video below shows with references to peer reviewed citations in journal papers that the US Centers for Disease Control medical scientists engage in using peer reviewed journal publications, in this case Health Economics, to promote Hep B vaccine on false and made up figures.  Hepatitis B vaccine is given to every US baby immediately following birth when the disease risk is predominantly to intravenous drug abusers and practitioners of unsafe sex and not babies.  Hepatitis B vaccine has a reputation as a particularly toxic vaccine: UK Government Caught Lying On Baby Hep B Vax Safety.

This 7 minute video contains citations to peer reviewed journal publications showing the CDC falsifying disease data to promote the Hep B vaccine by claiming 250,000 hepatitis cancer deaths in India and published this in a journal paper. The paper claims a death rate at 5000% of the true figure such that the vaccine is being promoted on a completely false basis which cannot be justified on the basis of the true figures.

The findings which show this further US CDC research fraud were published in the Lancet medical journal. The CDC could not justify the figures but the CDC paper has not been retracted by the publishing journal: Health Economics.  The correspondence with the journal can be found here: Letter to the Editor Policy analysis of the   use of Hepatitis B, Hemophilus  influenzae type B, Streptococcus pneumoniae-conjugate  and Rotavirus vaccines   in   the   National   Immunization Schedules.

Flu Vaccine 13 Deaths – Italy – Authorities Fail to Prove Vaccine Not Responsible

CHS reported here on the recently reported deaths following flu vaccine: Official Investigation As 13 Die Following Flu Vaccine – Italy

Now it is being reported: ‘No evidence’ Fluad flu vaccine caused deaths in Italy

There are a number of problems with this report.   When precautionary measures are needed, the evidence the public need is that the vaccine did not kill, not that there is no evidence it did.  There appears to be no evidence the vaccine did not kill the 13 victims.  There is evidence the deaths followed very shortly after the vaccine.  Vaccines are fast tracked and not properly tested for safety.  They are not subjected to the “gold standard” of testing – the randomised placebo controlled trial.

And as a public health measure they do not work – yet health authorities continue to push flu vaccines on the population not because they do work but because these are mass experiments on living human populations with products which are not proven safe.  And then the adverse reactions are heavily under-reported and the data misreported to pretend dangerous vaccines are safe, as CHS has reported previously:

Italy Investigates Novartis Flu Vaccine After 13 Deaths are Reported

Ed Silverman – Pharmalot – Wall Street Journal – 1st Dec 2014

Italy has suspended the use of two batches of the Fluad flu vaccine made by Novartis after 13 people died shortly after the treatment was administered.

………..

The episode occurs shortly before Novartis is due to transfer its vaccines business to GlaxoSmithKline as part of an asset swap deal in which Glaxo will transfer most of its cancer portfolio to Novartis. A Glaxo spokeswoman declined to comment.

This is the not the first time that Novartis has run into difficulties with vaccines produced in Italy. Two years ago, the drug maker suffered what it called a “data-handling discrepancy,” which caused some vaccines to be temporarily and voluntarily held for several months. Novartis inspected its manufacturing practices and submitted reports to the EMA and AIFA before shipments resumed.”

53,000 Paralysis Cases in India From Polio Vaccine In A Year – NPAFP Identical to Polio But Twice as Deadly

How to declare a vaccine programme a success?  Redefine the disease and then claim it is being eradicated with a vaccine whilst still causing paralysis under a different name “Non Polio Acute Flaccid Paralysis“.

NPAFP is clinically indistinguishable from polio paralysis but twice as deadly as revealed in a peer reviewed journal and reported by CHS here: New Paper – Polio Vaccine – Disease Caused by Vaccine Twice As Fatal – Third World Duped – Scarce Money Wasted – Polio Eradication Impossible

A report in India last January, from the second largest business newspaper in India “LiveMint”, with an exclusive relationship with the Wall Street Journal, records:

In the past 13 months, India has reported 53,563 cases of NPAFP at a national rate of 12 per 100,000 children—way above the global benchmark set by WHO of 2 per 100,000.” India to get polio-free status amid rise in acute flaccid paralysis cases  Jan 13 2014

India has provided the evidence to indicate that Non Polio Acute Flaccid Paralysis is a disease associated with the polio vaccine.  The vaccine contains live polio virus, so when administered artificially is a means of causing a polio infection.

The LiveMint article reports:

Two doctors from Delhi’s St Stephens Hospital, Neetu Vashisht and Jacob Puliyel, who compiled data from the national polio surveillance project, found a link between the increase in dosage of polio vaccination and the increasing cases of NPAFP.
 
“Most experts will tell you the cases of NPAFP have increased because of better surveillance. This is bunkum,” said Puliyel. “As per global benchmarks, as polio incidence comes down, the rate of NPAFP should also reduce. Instead, AFP cases have been increasing steadily.”
 
“In 2010, the government reduced the number of pulse polio doses from 10 to 6. What we found was that between 2010-2013, the number of APF cases also came down. Our paper argues that other kinds of polio are being caused by the excessive administration of polio dosages,” Puliyel said. “Another proof is that states like Kerala and Goa, where dosages were less, AFP cases was also less. Majority of NPAFP cases are reported from Bihar and UP, where several immunization rounds are held to reach universal coverage. These are figures the government does not want to admit.”

Just as the H1N1 scaremongers machine did in 2009, the Ebola scaremonger machine goes into overdrive

Does anyone remember the dud fake H1N1 swine flu pandemic scare?  How about the dud fake bird flu pandemic scare?  Or maybe people remember the dud fake SARS pandemic scare [Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome] or maybe even the HIV/AIDS scare?  You know – HIV/AIDS with the 1980s TV ads telling everyone they were all going to die from having sex without a condom and billions of tax dollars diverted to a lot of pockets of “scientists” and drug companies promoting highly toxic drugs like AZT which killed people?  Great news for condom manufacturers too.

As hard as it is to believe, H1N1 was five years ago.  Bird flu was 7 years ago.  SARS was 12 years ago and HIV/AIDS started in the 1980s. HIV/AIDS is the weirdest long-running scare.  We in the West were all meant to die but what a crazy thing – how come it was only a big problem in Africa?  Surprise surprise – pretty much anyone still moving and who was sick in Africa was HIV positive and anyone no longer moving and dead died from AIDS. (It did not matter what really killed them – it was AIDS).

And no one in the West seemed to notice how weird that was or at least even care.  And how come it all happened in Africa?  And how come in the West it was just gay people and drug abusers?  No one seemed to notice the contrast with Clamidia infection spreading like wildfire even today from unsafe sex particularly in 10% of US and European teens but HIV/AIDS in comparison in the West was not.

These historical dud health scares are just like the latest money-spinning wheeze from the drug industry and health officials to hype how great they are at saving everyone – after all Homeland Security is saving us all from the latest flavor of the month terrorists to take our minds off how our own governments are the biggest threats to our health and world security.  So the health protection industry needs to have their own occasional bogey-men to make sure we keep paying their mortgages with their inflated salaries for mostly providing near worthless pointless services – like the US CDC criticized in a Congressional report which was:

A review of how an agency tasked with fighting and preventing disease has spent hundreds of millions of tax dollars for failed prevention efforts, international junkets, and lavish facilities, but cannot demonstrate it is controlling disease.

One thing we remember about these crankfest fake scares was just how crazy the crankosphere’s nutters and loonies were, attacking anyone who criticized these drug industry marketing opportunities to promote worthless snake-oil treatments and pointless public health campaigns spending billions of dollars to develop drugs and dangerous untested vaccines to be unleashed on citizens of the US and Europe using their own tax monies to do it.

Besides the usual paranoia that demonized these fake dud pandemics as wildfire killer diseases was other equally ridiculous fever dream nonsense, and there was the quackery.  And one you should remember quite well is the one where it was claimed that Tamiflu would save us all. Anything claiming otherwise was all conspiracy theories the nutters and loonies screeched on the blogs and in social media, like the Donald Rumsfeld financial interest in Tamiflu maker Hoffman La Roche. Or the Bush presidential interests in it:

President Bush sought to instil panic by telling us a minimum of 200,000 people will die from avian flu but it could be as bad as two million deaths in the US alone. This hoax was justified by the immediate purchase of 80 million doses of Tamiflu.’

These were truly eye-opening events, surpassing any others of well nearly 30 years’ experience of media mania manipulators and these barking crazy cranks. Remember we were told by the media to look out for the dead carcasses of migrating birds dropping from the skies?  That was the wackiest wackfest in wonderland with the media hype over just the one dead swan found in the whole of Europe which turned out not to be a bird flu bird.

The news that Baxter pharmaceutical released vaccines contaminated with live avian flu virus in the EU in vaccines when it should have been impossible under stringent laboratory protocols should have set the alarm bells ringing world-wide.  The virus turned out not to be the killer it was hyped to be but its release would have generated billions of dollars in vaccine sales and the vaccine would have been fast-tracked past any safety testing – instant wealth for Baxter Pharmaceutical.  The crankosphere would claim that is truly weapons-grade conspiracy mongering stupidity.   But wait … it happened.  It took place.  And what prevented the release?  In the whole of Europe just one Czech lab took the trouble to test it on animals – they died.

The flu vaccine with a counted confirmed number of 800 European child victims of narcolepsy confirmed in the British Medical Journal, an unknown number of uncounted and with that cataplexy too and other adverse vaccine reactions and vaccine maker GlaxoSmithKline standing to gain US$480,000,000 from causing it with its flu vaccine.  And for causing a problem that required the EU to take emergency measures over the health problem for European children.

Or how about the Dutch Parliament’s failed investigation into the financial interests of the single Dutch “scientist” who was documented as the single person responsible for sparking off SARS and the numerous swine and bird flu scares from his position on the World Health Organisation’s scientific committee responsible for investigating and reporting  such threats.

Yes, pandemics and epidemics do bring out the worst in people, as far as critical thinking goes. This time around  it’s Ebola virus disease. This has been hyped to such a degree using mainstream media that the bozosphere’s looney toons will claim that to the average person, Ebola is way more scary than H1N1.  They claim H1N1 had the potential to infect and potentially kill far more people – even though for around a decade that has just not happened despite the efforts to hype and spread it.

But wait.  The notorious “Science Based Medicine” crank Dr David Gorski just cannot help himself and dived in with both feet.  This is “Science Based Medicine” at its best.  Gorski teaches us all what Science Based Medicine is: repeated direct contradiction paragraph after paragraph in polemical diatribe, just like the fictional British journalist Glenda Slagg brought to life by satirical magazine, Private Eye [fag is British slang for ‘cigarette’]:

Glenda Slagg and Polly Filla

Two of the leading women columnists in journalism today. Glenda is very much old-school; fag in one hand, opinion in the other. Or rather opinions, because Glenda’s prime asset is her ability to effortlessly contradict herself. Polly is a much younger model; the new breed of hack who can Free Tibet, get the Romanian au pair to do the children’s homework and fit in Pilates before brunch in Hampstead; all on just 150K a year.

Now that cases of Ebola virus disease have been reported in the US, the panic has been cranked up, even though this is at the same time as the crankiest of cranks of the crankosphere admitting the risk of an epidemic in the US or Europe is minimal. He Dr David Gorski along with the rest of the drug and vaccine brigade even go so far as to claim that longstanding known health treatments and prophylaxis like vitamins and healthy eating are of no use whatsoever against this new hyper super-sized killer zombie disease hyped health threat.  The quackery of Science Based Medicine is breathtaking.

Now, given how afraid everyone is of Ebola they want you all to support a vaccine against the disease claiming “a vaccine likely represents the best hope for bringing the current epidemic under control with as little loss of life as possible” [God help us all – ooh we’re all doomed]. Certainly if such a vaccine were to be developed, it will be fast-tracked past all safety precautions as usual and likely be available relatively soon (at least in terms of drug or vaccine development time), given the urgency the hyper hype is generating that wasn’t there before.   With all this history these loons and nutters say “you’d think that a vaccine would be welcomed with open arms“.  Barking mad.

But the US and CDC in particular look incompetent at best and potentially crooked at worst.  We are also told an experimental Ebola vaccine is being fast tracked into human trials and promoted as the final solution.  Then there is the supposed alternative of ramping up testing and production of experimental drugs which have allegedly already saved the lives of several Ebola-infected Americans.  Just like Tamiflu it will be hailed the new saviour of mankind.

But wait did the cook of the crankiest crankfest of the crankosphere, Dr David Gorski on his Scienceblogs comic strip of a blog actually questions whether experimental wonder drug ZMapp actually did save the lives of those Americans who survived Ebola?  Yep – he claimes “It might have. It might not have. We need more data and a clinical trial to tell if ZMapp is as effective as we all hope it is. It might have been that those patients would have recovered anyway with supportive care alone.

Oh, no wee Dr Davy Gorski.  What an own goal for Science Based Medicine.  First he tells some of the dunderhead disciples how serious Ebola is as a world threat and then he says people might just recover on their own.  But wait a nanosec or three, to Gorski it is quackery and heresy indeed to suggest good nourishment to keep the immune system working in top order and maybe a shovel load of vitamins might do any good.  And to cap it all we need clinical trials – hey Davy, whatever happened to the “need” to fast-track and ignore safety which tomorrow you will tell everyone is essential?

But if the drug needs trials and proper testing, the same must apply to the vaccine?  But Gorski’s Science Based Medicine is blind to details when he wants to scare and push a potentially dangerous and potentially useless fast tracked vaccine over a just as potentially dangerous and useless drug.  And if people might get better from Ebola all by themselves, as Gorski bizarrely claims whilst claiming the disease is a serious killer, the same should apply to a vaccine as to any claimed wonder drug, whether ZMapp, or the near useless Tamiflu?

Who would have known it?  Wee Davy Gorski has just driven the Quack-o-Meter so far off-scale the needle spun round like a coiled spring.  That’s Science Based Medicine for you.

That is how completely barking these people are.  In one blog post cherrypicking like crazy entirely contradictory positions as if no one will notice. And oh dear, is this drug not the world’s saviour after all?  Gorski dehypes it as “a humanized monoclonal antibody (like Avastin and Herceptin, for instance). Making such drugs is difficult, expensive, and can’t easily just be “ramped up” instantly.

Is Davy a naive soul or someone driving an agenda of bullying and abusing those who stand up against corruption and fraud in the drug industry and by government health officials.  He really wants everyone to believe it is impossible that some people in industry, the government, and the World Health Organization do not want the Ebola outbreak to be confined to several nations in Africa because that would fail to create a lucrative global market for mandated use of fast tracked Ebola vaccines by every one of the seven billion human beings living on this planet.

But does he believe it himself?  What are the chances?

And that was when the question was being posed “Will there be an Ebola outbreak in America?“.  Well now we are being told Ebola has made landfall.  Hip hooray for the drugfest bonanza to follow.

Notice how it never occurs to Gorski that the best way to stop an outbreak of an infectious disease is through prevention like is done with smallpox – the most effective method proven over centuries is isolation. What?  Oh, it is being done with Ebola too?  Well you would never believe it.  Old tried and tested quack methods being used with all that hi-tech medicine ‘n all.

Gorski really wants the world to believe the money driven marketing machines of the drug industry would never sustain, or take advantage of the current Ebola “outbreak” in order to create a market for vaccines for its pharma overlords nor to create a lucrative market for ZMapp, whose early development Gorski confirms was funded by the U.S. Department of Defense.  Well of course next Gorski will tell everyone that Rumsfeld and Tamiflu are like financial products – past performance is no guide to future performance – really Davy?  Is it really the rest of the world that is stupid like you claim or are you so stupid you actually believe that?

Well, that is what Science Based Medicine seems to be all about – a political polemical rhetorical device to claim “science is on our side” whilst attacking, deriding and abusing others on the internet just like manipulative rulers and warmongers would exhort their people that “God is on our side” to wage wars. 

Gorski is not quite as stupid as you might think from reading his dire fanatical blog posts.  He knows perfectly well what is true when attacking his opponents claiming the contrary.

But to Gorski on his blog just like the assassination of John F Kennedy, its all paranoid conspiracy theories with him citing real people on social media expressing real concerns justified over and over by history and him cherrypicking exchanges too like these:

The seemingly unhinged Gorski with his bizarre cranky views claims the replies are equally unhinged:

Gorski claims a drug industry with a long and repeated history of frauds bribery and corruption have no interest in the Ebola “feargasm” being used to promote toxic mass vaccination programmes.  Its all conspiracy theory, like the corruption investigations and criminal charges against companies like GlaxoSmithKline [latest example China]. He wants you to think no drug company nor health official would have any interest in using Ebola as a pretext for mass vaccination. Not surprisingly, history teaches that Gorski’s claims it is all paranoia and conspiracy theories is his usual crap scribbling.  Gorski surely cannot believe what he writes? Can he?  Really?  Can anyone really and truly believe that drivel? 

We have only given a few of large numbers of examples here from a long and undistinguished drug industry history, undistinguished save for its repeated heavy taints of murkiness and corruption. Davy is part of it too as anyone who reads his verbal vomitus soon realises.

Despite the huge own goal of the World Health Organisation over the 2009 swine flu feargasm showing how eerily similar what is happening now to the ones that sprang up five, ten and many more years ago, Gorski in his shrillest shill tones wants you all believe everything done is being done and will be done in the mass vaccination programs to be instituted by the US and other nations will be just to try to forestall Ebola’s “worst effects“.

Just like Glenda Slagg, Gorski does not believe what he writes and does not care about the contradictions, because some people will read and Believe, Allellujah because its Science, innit, yo babe. 

Gorski is under contract to write and so he writes six days a week just like Glenda Slagg.
