4 Girls Die – India Suspends Cervical Cancer Vaccine

India has suspended the HPV cervical cancer vaccine programme after 4 girls died in India amid allegations of exploitation of participants and violation of ethical guidelines during the earlier “clinical trials” of the vaccine according to a front page story in India’s newspaper, The Hindu and widely reported in other media: Centre halts HPV vaccine project Aarti Dhar Thursday 8th April 2010.

The HPV vaccine has been associated with serious adverse effects with high levels of reported adverse reactions.  Death and debilitating illness have been claimed but officials do not acknowledge an association: Gardasil Victims – In Memoriam – Healthy Young Women – Aged 15 to 21.

CHS has previously reported that UK health officials have wrongly assumed the human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccine can prevent 70 per cent of cases of cervical cancer and media have reported that “German experts said the assumptions simply did not stand up to scrutiny, and that women remained at risk“: Experts Cast Doubt on Claim for ‘Wonder’ Cancer Jabs Sunday Express 31 May 2009: Cervical cancer jabs cast into doubt after experts question effectiveness Scotland On Sunday 10th May 2009.

The drive for mass vaccination programmes internationally is the result of the drug industry’s changing business plans from the failing blockbuster patented drug model to hugely lucrative mass multiple vaccinations for the world’s 6.5 billion people.  But those who raise valid public and child health  safety concerns are routinely ‘label libelled’ as ‘anti-vaccine’, ridiculed and in the case of some medical professionals, hounded out of their jobs.

Germany’s Robert Koch Institute, which makes recommendations on the public funding of vaccines, had to review the nation’s programme in May 2009 after 13 experts called for a reassessment of its HPV vaccination programme and an end to “misleading information” about the effectiveness of the jab.  A spokeswoman said: “Because of the public discussion and some new reports and new statements from the 13 professors, the committee will publish a statement within the next few weeks.”

The UK’s New Labour Government has been aggressively pursuing the HPV vaccine programme in schools out of sight of parental control: HPV Vaccine Questioned Internationally CHS 31 May 2009.

Some consent forms reportedly had no decline option.   There have been anecdotal reports of young girls being cross-examined in school corridors by health officials on parental consent issues. British Health Minister Dawn Primarolo is closely associated with the pursuit of the policy.

The Sunday Express reports Professor Martina Doren, of the Charitie Hospital in Berlin:

What concerns us is that the two manufacturers of the vaccine aren’t always using facts. They claim that a lot of high-risk strains of cancer-causing virus are protected against but equally there are others that are not. If protection is not more than 20 per cent then that is an awful lot of money to be spending, particularly as the vaccines have quite serious side-effects.”

EXCLUSIVE: EXPERTS CAST DOUBT ON CLAIM FOR ‘WONDER’ CANCER JABS – By Lucy Johnston and Martyn Halle – Sunday May 31,2009

A spokesman for GlaxoSmithKline, which makes Cervarix, was unable at the time to provide figures on cases of pre-cancerous cells in women who have taken the vaccine, compared with those who have not.

Scottish Conservative health spokeswoman Mary Scanlon said at the time: “Given this new research, it is now incumbent on the Scottish Government and the chief medical officer to review the vaccination programme to ensure that it lives up to the expectations of preventing cervical cancer.”

The HPV vaccine programme is based on recommendations of the UK’s Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation. This highlights questions over the competence of the UK’s JCVI to make recommendations on UK vaccination programmes and the competence of medical professionals in general to express opinions on scientific matters.

The JCVI has a documented history of recklessness over vaccination policy and a needle-happy reputation along with concerns about financial and other conflicts of interest: Secret British MMR Vaccine Files Forced Open By Legal Action but from April 1 last year has been given unfettered control of UK Government vaccination policy for England: UK Government Hands Drug Industry Control of Childhood Vaccination.  And as the British Medical Journal confirms: Doctors are not scientists — Smith 328 (7454): BMJ.

If the vaccine is not effective, then its adverse effects cannot be justified but in the UK we see no official comment on the vaccine’s risk profile.  This highlights how public safety issues fail to be addressed as a result of  what some claim is a quasi-religious belief created by the drug industry in the importance of vaccines and the fear medical professionals have of making public criticisms on safety grounds.

Alongside the expansion of vaccination programmes the childhood prevalence of lifetime conditions like asthma, allergies, autism, diabetes and others requiring further medications have increased substantially.

The Bill Gates’ Microsoft type business model is one of the emerging replacement business models for the drug industry.  Almost everyone has Windows software on their PC – almost everyone will be vax’ed.  Gates quickly became a multi-billionaire.  With vastly more people to vaccinate than computers requiring software the lure of money for the pharmaceutical industry is substantial.

United Kingdom Concerns Regarding HPV-GM Vaccines

The following points are the serious concerns of the above authors from the United Kingdom (representing Scotland and England) who have researched the Cervarix vaccine in depth. They have noted media concern over many young girls adversely affected by serious illnesses, such as several forms of paralysis including Bells palsy, hemiparesis, hypoaesthesis and Guillaine-Barre Syndrome.   Convulsions, seizures and epileptic fits, along with diminished vision have also been cited. The UK Health Minister, Dawn Primaralo and Scottish Health Minister Shona Robison, deny that these illnesses are connected to the vaccine and that they are coincidental in nature.

The Dutch Cervarix Concerns

We probably speak a different language than you do. Not only because we’re Dutch, but also because we’re not scientists, medical specialists or journalists. We consider ourselves professors in everyday life and even more, we’re mothers. It was September 2008 when we first read an article about Gardasil. Meanwhile it has become a daily routine to read all the    news (good and bad) about HPV, Gardasil and Cervarix. Although we had read enough about what was going on in the US we never expected to come in the middle of the same scenario in Holland. Link to document.

One Mother’s Plea

Karen Maynor of New Mexico lost her daughter, Megan Hild to the Gardasil vaccine on November 15, 2008.  Megan was a healthy, vital 20-year-old young woman with great aspirations –and no history of previous medical problems. Megan had just finished the second in the series of the Gardasil vaccination in September of 2008.

UK General Medical Council Told Docs “Commit Fraud for MMR Vaccine Bonuses”

The UK’s General Medical Council issued formal written advice to UK medical doctors to commit fraud on the UK’s National Health Service for personal financial gain: Target Payments for Preventive Health Measures” which asked and answered the question “Can GPs remove some children from their lists, temporarily, for the purpose of calculating the MMR target payment?” [full quotes below].

If UK doctors met target levels for vaccinations they qualified for bonus payments.  One way of claiming was to make a false return.  The GMC’s advice was for doctors to file false returns of the numbers of patients who had received the MMR vaccine.  Doctors were advised to take unvaccinated child patients off the patient list temporarily to claim the bonuses but also to ensure the parent agreed, [thereby implicating parents in the fraud].

The GMC is the UK statutory body established to protect, promote and maintain the health and safety of the public by ensuring proper standards in the practice of medicine by medical doctors.  Dishonesty, financial impropriety and fraud fall within its purview [in more ways than one it would seem].

This is the same organisation which recently found Professors Walker-Smith, Simon Murch and Dr Andrew Wakefield guilty of numerous charges filed by Sunday Times’ journalist Brian Deer.  No parent complained and the doctors enjoy wide support amongst parents of many autistic children they did their best to help.  Other doctors who have refused to toe the UK’s Department of Health line on medical practice have found themselves facing or threatened with proceedings by the GMC including amongst many others these four cases: UK’s GMC, Dr Jayne Donegan’s Story, Vaccines & MMR – – Dr Sarah Myhill – – Dr Peter Mansfield – –  Dr. Barry Durrant-Peatfield.

So if it concerns getting MMR vaccine uptake up to help the drug industry, fraud is fine.  But make sure you implicate the parents and what better way to do that than to pressure them into agreeing their children become temporary patients possibly for emergency treatment only or else be dumped from the patient roster completely. But if you raise valid concerns about the safety of vaccinations watch out.

What should the GMC have said?  The GMC should have given a clear lead to doctors and should have said [but did not] that temporary removals of child patients from a GP’s roster is never an option because it is neither ethical nor honest  and that such bonus payments created a conflict of interest between the doctor’s financial gain and the welfare of the child patient.

The GMC is independent (allegedly) of the NHS and of Government but in practice is run and controlled by the UK medical heirarchy and paid for by the medical profession.  Where the GMC finds that a doctor is not fit to practise, it has legal power to erase that doctor’s name from the medical register, to suspend the doctor from the register or to place conditions on the doctor’s practice. These restrictions apply to practice in any sector of employment in any part of the UK.

The GMC has a great notoriety in the UK with frequent calls for it to be abolished, suggested legislative threats: “Minister to look again at NHS bill’s threat to GMC” British Medical Journal: 1999 February 20; 318(7182): 482 and has attracted critical analysis of its decisions including in peer reviewed journal papers:

United Kingdom General Medical Council Fails Child Protection” Catherine Williams Pediatrics, Apr 2007; 119: 800 – 802;

Meadow, Southall, and the General Medical Council of the United Kingdom” David L. Chadwick, Henry F. Krous, and Desmond K. Runyan Pediatrics, Jun 2006; 117: 2247 – 2251;

It is a criminal offence in England to aid abet, counsel or procure the commission of a criminal offence – such as obtaining pecuniary advantage by deception.

The GMC Formal Advice to Doctors to Commit Fraud

The GMC posed the question “Can GPs remove some children from their lists, temporarily, for the purpose of calculating the MMR target payment?” in an article entitled “Target Payments for Preventive Health Measures” first published in GMC News in June 2003.

And the GMC’s answer was effectively “it’s OK provided you have patient consent“.  It seems it also happens to be OK if it helps to increase the MMR uptake figures.  The advice was not offered for other vaccinations.

The GMC also failed to make mention of the financial and moral impropriety of doing so in their answer to the question they themselves posed:-

This must not be done without the parents’ agreement. Parents must be given a full explanation of what was proposed and why, their child’s rights as an NHS patient, and the implications for their child’s future care. Doctors working within the NHS must treat all patients entitled to NHS services on an equal footing. So temporarily removing a child from a GPs list must not adversely affect their care, for example in accessing secondary care and out-of-hours services, or in providing relevant information to ensure continuity of care and allow effective working with other agencies. Doctors must act honestly in their financial dealings. So GPs must ensure that any arrangement to remove a child from their list and re-register them for ‘immediately necessary treatment’, or on some other basis, would be in line with their contractual obligations to the NHS.

So provided the doctor does what the GMC advises and ensures “that any arrangement … would be in line with their contractual obligations to the NHS” it is fine as “Doctors must act honestly in their financial dealings“.

All this is of course barking mad.

The GMC also advised that if the evidence is available this is not contrary to GMC guidance on good medical practice:-

Are temporary removals from a GPs list acceptable to the GMC? In the absence of evidence that ‘temporary removals’ satisfy the concerns outlined at Q5, we cannot give any reassurance that such arrangements would be seen as consistent with our guidance on good practice.

The conflict with the GMC’s other advice is clear.  The GMC advised UK doctors “must not ask for or accept any inducement, gift or hospitality which may affect or be seen to affect the way you prescribe for, treat or refer patients.“: Conflicts of interest – guidance for doctors

But it seems the GMC do not mind when it comes to MMR, even where the inducement is so strong it encourages fraud on the NHS.  But then, the GMC did not seem to mind about that either.

Ironically  “GMC Today” newsletter carried a story titled “Is the NHS immune to fraud?” [Oct 2005] about reducing and reporting fraud in the National Health Service, stating:-

Most people who work in and use the NHS are honest, but there is a minority that tries to defraud it of its valuable resources. By working to reduce fraud and corruption to an absolute minimum and hold it there permanently, the NHS CFSMS can release these resources for better patient care. In the largest organisation in Europe, even a small proportion of fraudulent staff and patients has a huge impact. Fraud is committed by a range of NHS professionals, who might claim for work not undertaken, alter prescriptions, create ghost patients or make fraudulent claims for out of hours visits, advice not given or treatment not provided. In some areas, claims by NHS professionals fell by between 43% and 54% after processes were fraud-proofed.

It is now accepted that even the NHS is not immune to fraud.

The GMC has an agreement on cooperating and coordinating with the NHS Counter Fraud service.  The story gave a number to call the confidential NHS Fraud and Corruption Reporting Line and an email address too.  It reports:-

If you have a concern about a fraud taking place within the NHS, please call the confidential NHS Fraud and Corruption Reporting Line on 0800 028 40 60. All calls will be dealt with by trained staff and professionally investigated. Lines are open Monday to Friday 8 am–6 pm. You can also email us at nhsfraud@cfsms.nhs.uk at any time.Memorandum of Understanding between the General Medical Council (GMC) and the National Health Service Counter Fraud Service (NHS CFS)

We had not got the heart to tell ’em.  Would you?

When Was This?

When this news was published by The OneClickGroup in October 2007 the GMC’s response was to claim the advice was withdrawn in 2006.  But the fact the advice was published at all is damning.  Not only that, the advice continued to be published on the GMC website as late as 7th October 2007 with no indication to doctors it had been withdrawn.

After The OneClickGroup’s exposée the GMC removed the page containing the advice from its website and republished the advice but with a banner across it claiming “Withdrawn November 2006”: Target Payments for Preventive Health Measures.

Additionally, the advice was published for over 4 years from June 2003 until October 2007 [just about the time the GMC was ready to attack Wakefield, Walker-Smith and Murch].

Who Ran The GMC Then?

The President when the advice was first published until 2009 was Sir Graeme Catto – also incumbent when the GMC started the proceedings against Walker-Smith, Murch and Wakefield.

So it just goes to show, you cannot trust anyone in “authority” these days.

Anyone wanting to make a complaint to the GMC?  Here is where you do it:-

UK “Faked” National Autism Data To Declare MMR Vaccine “Safe”

UK children are nearly 5 times more likely to have autistic conditions than adults according to the results of the first ever UK government survey to assess the numbers of adults with the condition: [“Autism Spectrum Disorders in adults living in households throughout England – Report from the Adult Psychiatric Morbidity Survey 2007The NHS Information Centre.]

But the British public were told instead that the survey shows rates in adults and children have always been the same so that that vaccines like MMR cannot be to blame for the increasing rates in children. The UK National Health Service funded the survey and made these claims.

Survey Authors Couldn’t Find Enough Adult Autistics

There were early rumours in 2008 the authors could not find numbers of adult autistic spectrum condition [ASC] cases matching numbers in children.

The survey failed to find a single case of an adult with “typical” or “classic” autism, found in approximately 30%  of  ASC children. “Typical” or “classic” autism is a type of ASC controversially claimed in 1998 might be associated with the MMR vaccine.

The authors also failed to find sufficient adult ASC cases overall – just 19 in 7,451 adults, being “higher functioning” ASCs – mainly Asperger’s Syndrome. This represents an overall rate of just under 1 in 300 potential adult cases and not the officially claimed 1 in 100 for children.

The authors say that if they had carried out the survey differently they might have found four times as many adults a further 46 or 47 ASC cases to come up with the same figure as for children.   Using already estimated data they claimed to be able estimate-on-the-estimate that the adult autism rate for the entire UK is the same as in children [1 in 100].

The survey’s original design meant it was highly unlikely any cases would be “missed” and instead that cases would be over-estimated.   This calls into question the authors’ claims to be able to estimate such a large number of “missed” cases.   The survey design was broadly based.  An unlikely 72% of the adult  participants were selected as potentially having one of four mental illnesses [rather than just ASC]. The study was also designed so that those most likely to have an ASC were interviewed and those unlikely to were excluded.

Whilst designed to estimate the maximum number, the survey as published was also based solely on data for Asperger’s Syndrome from the Adult Psychiatric Morbidity Survey 2007 and not other ASCs.  That is not what the NHS has been telling the media and public. The study authors stated in their prior May 2008 news release that there were to be two surveys in their study, the second to cover other ASCs: University of Leicester to lead audit of adults with autism Eurekalert 9-May-2008. But neither the media nor the public were told by the NHS that the second survey had not been carried out and that no data from it was included in the final survey report.

It is not credible that for none of the other psychiatric conditions in the Adult Psychiatric Morbidity Survey 2007 it seems was it considered necessary to “estimate” “missed” cases – and particularly not an unusually high 3 out of four cases.  The data used is the identical data collected from the identical subjects by the same people at the same time as part of and using the identical study design.

And therefore also the prevalence of ASCs in adults cannot be 1% in any event and also cannot be the same as in children [also contrary to the public claims made by the NHS].

On the basis of the results so far the NHS would have had to claim the prevalence of ASCs in adults is substantially greater than in children and it would have to explain how that could be.

Details of how the missed Aspergers cases were estimated were not provided.  None appear in the survey report to show how the authors calculated this to arrive at an estimated overall adult ASC prevalence figure of 1 in 100.

The NHS also needs to explain of how it came to issue a news release claiming this survey was of the prevalence of adults with ASCs when it is not.  This appears to show that the NHS funded a survey report, assured the Statistics Authority of its validity as “national statistics” when even the title of the report is not accurate and then used it in the media and in public to bolster a policy position when not justified in doing so.

The explanation given of the calculation of “missed cases” appears to be that of all potential cases of adults with ASCs identified by telephone interview only 630 were selected for interview.  The researchers then estimated what they thought they would have found if they interviewed all “potential cases” and multiplied up the 19 cases found to arrive at 73.

Difficulties with this include the remarkably high numbers of adults identified as “potential” ASC cases – more than one in every two adults – or half [ie. 2,854 adults out of a possible 5,329 eligible for consideration].  This demonstrates the inaccuracy of the probabilities the researchers assigned to potential ASC cases and in particular the bias to substantially over estimating the potential numbers of ASC cases.

This is compounded by only 19 cases being found in those deemed most likely to have an ASC and selected for interview.

The estimate of 1 in 100 is also based on what appear  the very same and remarkably inaccurate “probabilities” for selection devised by the researchers.

This does not appear scientific.  It is also compounded by the same researchers claiming wrongfully that their results are for all adults with ASCs when the documented facts  show the data was collected for potential Asperger Syndrome cases only. [Added 16/Feb/2010]

Autism In Children Already Higher Than 1 in 100

A further problem with the survey is that two recent formal peer reviewed journal published studies have found the rate in children is  not 1 in 100 but much higher.  A 2006 study [Baird] found a rate in children of 1 in 85 and a recently published study by Baron-Cohen et al of 2005 data found a  rate of ASC’s in children of 1 in 64 when children not yet diagnosed were taken into account.  This gives a rate of ASC in children 5 times higher than the 1 in 300 indicated by the survey’s results.  Neither of these studies are mentioned in the survey although members of the same team were involved in the Baron-Cohen study, and Professor Baron-Cohen was a consultant to the survey.

Impossible for Adult ASC Rate to Be Same as Childrens’

The authors inexplicably also fail to explain how their estimate of ASC rates in adults is the same as in children when their results show ASC rates in adults and children are significantly different:-

  • Aspergers Syndrome rates in adults on these results are 40% higher than in children;
  • correspondingly Aspergers Syndrome cases in children compared to adults would have to have substantially decreased for this to be so;
  • the rate of “classic” autism has leapt from zero in adults to 30% of ASC cases in children;
  • adults with “classic” autism do not exist.

Identical Figures – A Remarkable Coincidence

The addition of the authors’ hypothetical “estimated” cases provides exactly the same rate of 1 in 100 previously accepted for children.  This is despite the authors themselves warning the results should be approached with caution because of the inaccuracies.  In such circumstances if rates were the same then a similar figure might be expected but not exactly the same one.

The 1% figure for children was stated in pre publicity announcing the start of survey: University of Leicester to lead audit of adults with autism Eurekalert 9-May-2008. “Author bias” in favour of finding a pre-determined figure favourable to the study funder is a well-known phenomenon in formal medical literature.

Breaching the codes of practice prohibiting the release of national statistics for government policy purposes the UK National Health Service’s publicity put out to the media on publication of the survey focussed on claiming ASC rates in adults and children were identical and that therefore the MMR vaccine did not cause ASCs.  This was not the stated purpose of the survey and the authors make no mention of the vaccine-autism issue.  Media stories included: Autism rates back MMR jab safety Michelle Roberts BBC Tuesday, 22 September 2009 and Autism just as common in adults, so MMR is in the clear Sarah Boseley The Guardian Tuesday 22 September 2009.

Survey Does Not Live Up To Its Title

The survey was originally announced to establish the UK adult autism rate for the first time by finding what were then being claimed to be “missed” adult cases of autism.

The publicity claimed “The new prevalence study now underway will give the first ever accurate picture of how many adults have the condition.” [Emphasis added]University of Leicester to lead audit of adults with autism Eurekalert 9-May-2008. The purpose was to inform UK authorities in planning service provision for adults autistics.

The authors used “second-hand” data collected in 2007 which covered only potential adult cases of Asperger’s Syndrome unsuitable for the claimed purpose. The authors planned an additional part of the survey to collect data on adults with other ASCs such as “typical” or “classic” autism but failed to mention this or any resulting data or results in their recently published survey report.  They stated in 2008:-

The prevalence study will make use of new data collected in 2007 by NatCen and Professor Brugha’s team to record the number of adults with Asperger’s syndrome and high functioning autism. There will also be an additional part to the study on the number of people with autism who have more complex needs and learning disabilities. The aim of the combined research will provide good epidemiological information in terms of prevalence and the characteristics and problems of this group.”

University of Leicester to lead audit of adults with autism Eurekalert 9-May-2008.

Many Anomalies

The standard approach under what is called “DSM IV” to diagnose ASC’s was applied but the authors based their assessments on a broader test for ASCs used in a manner neither accepted or relied by other professionals nor scientifically validated. Inexplicably the survey’s results of the DSM IV diagnoses were neither used nor published.

The 1 in 100 figure for children is based on formal diagnoses using accepted methods and published in formal peer reviewed medical literature.  The authors’ survey has not been independently reviewed nor has it been assessed for compliance with accepted statistical standards.

The 19 potential adult ASC cases in 7,451 participants included 17 male and 2 female, a rate of 1 in 8.5 whereas 1 in 5 cases in children are girls.

Other problems with the survey include:-

  • Inclusion in the study was based on the ability of selected members of the public to answer questions on the telephone followed by cooperation with a complex psychiatric assessment. The participants were therefore self-selecting and appear unrepresentative of the general population
  • The 19 cases claimed included no one from an ethnic minority, and a very low rate in females (the ratio of females with ASD is known to be 1 in 5 cases in children, but the survey results indicate it is half that in adults at 1 in 10)
  • Cooperation of more than half the 14,000 households approached is a remarkable and unexplained achievement. The questionnaire screened for psychotic disorder, Asperger syndrome, borderline personality disorder, and anti-social personality disorder.  Were the participants told this and would they have participated had they known?
  • The survey authors give a 95% “confidence interval” to their claim their estimate of adult ASC rate is the same as in children.  A confidence interval is a measure of trust in the reliability of the results but despite being the broadly based the survey failed to find the “missing” cases.

  • The survey results were published despite not having been through peer review nor verified for conformance to accepted standards for government statistics

  • Adults with “typical” autism [associated with the MMR vaccine] remain missing despite being a category claimed in the prior publicity to be part of the survey.

Dr Carol Stott commented on the methodology in Age of Autism:-

Whatever claims are made to the contrary this report tells us very little about the number of adults with ASDs – in England or anywhere else. The main problems with the study are with (a) case-definition, (b) ascertainment (c) diagnostic instruments (d) case identification and (e) statistical power.

There is no clearly stated case-definition anywhere in the report. The cases reported are defined loosely in terms of an initial score on a shortened unstandardised non-peer reviewed version of ascreening tool together with a semi-structured clinical interview – the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS) – that was not designed to act as a stand-alone diagnostic instrument.

The sample selected is not representative of the ASD population. All participants were verbally fluent, living in ordinary households, and able to complete a self-report questionnaire.

The choice of measurement tools is inadequately justified and badly referenced. No details are provided, nor are any sources referenced, on the psychometric properties of the initial screening instrument (AQ-20). The standardized scoring criteria for the ADOS were not followed (using a total cut-off of 10 for Communication + Social Reciprocity, rather than three cut-offs (respectively) of 3, 6 and 10 for Communication, Social Reciprocity and the two combined). Additionally the authors over state the validity of the ADOS as a tool for use in adult populations. Module Four (used in the study) was standardized on a sample of only 70 adults aged between 16 and 44. Ages in the study sample range from 16 – 75.

The technical appendix, which is intended to provide information about the derivation of the AQ-20 is statistically naïve, unclear and potentially inaccurate. It is not clear for example, what is meant by the phrase on pg 16 of Appendix C “….once the final set of predictors had been selected, a regression equation was available for predicting the prevalence of ADOS.” Neither is it clear whether General Linear Modelling, Linear Regression or both were used to derive final items.

Finally, inferences are made about the lack of a significant association between age-groups and ASD prevalence without reference to statistical power. In a study of this size, with only 19 identified (unweighted) cases, the likelihood is that the study was underpowered to detect such differences.A valid and reliable study of the population frequency of a disorder requires clear and robust case definition, validated instruments, standardized procedures and adequate statistical power. An initial evaluation of this report suggests it fails on all counts.

UK Fakes Flu Death Numbers

Annual flu deaths in the UK averaged no more than 33 over the last 4 years despite various UK Department of Health claims that 12,000 people die annually: 360 times higher than actual deaths. Fictitiously high death rates from flu continue to be invoked resulting in scaremongering despite scientific evidence the vaccines are ineffective for at risk groups.  In 2007 it was claimed that 25,000 people died from flu annually – 720 times the 2010 figure.

Disclosures by out-going Chief Medical Officer Sir Liam Donaldson show the flu death figures are fabricated. Donaldson posted details late on Christmas Eve on the British Medical Journal electronic letters after challenge by British Medical Journal deputy editor Tony Delamothe.  Donaldson wrote:-

…. annual mortality statistics produced by the Office for National Statistics …. record the underlying cause of death. They are based on all registered deaths, based on the information on death certificates. The number of deaths for England & Wales with an underlying cause of influenza (ICD-10 code J10-J11) for the four recent calendar years are: 39 (2008), 31 (2007), 17 (2006) and 44 (2005). Many more deaths are attributed to pneumonia, some of which will be secondary to influenza.

Responses to “Mortality from pandemic A/H1N1 2009 influenza in England: public health surveillance study” BMJ 2009; 339: b5213

But Donaldson also gave the official method of “estimating” flu deaths which can greatly inflate the numbers:

The official estimate of influenza mortality is produced by the Health Protection Agency. It is derived from excess all-cause death registrations in the winter. When the number of all-cause death registrations rises above an ‘expected’ level in a given week, this excess is counted. The estimates for the last five years in England & Wales are: 1965 (2004-05 winter season), 0 (2005-06), 0 (2006-07), 426 (2007- 08), and 10351 (2008-09). The highest estimate in recent years was for the 1999-2000 ‘flu season, at 21,497.

In two of five recent years the figure was zero.  Using this averaging “method” it is inevitable in some years the “flu deaths” figure will be a negative number, meaning fewer deaths than average.  The Department of Health has also tried to associate flu death with entire excess mortality for the winter season.  In a BBC news report Sir Liam declared during the annual flu vaccine “drive” in 2007:

According to Department of Health figures, flu contributes to over 25,000 excess winter deaths every year and thousands of people are hospitalised due to serious complications.” At-risk urged to get flu vaccine BBC News Channel 27/9/07

Less ambiguously a pamphlet on pandemic flu, published by the Department of Health and with an introduction by Sir Liam states:

Ordinary flu occurs every year during the winter months in the UK. It affects 10-15% of the UK population, causing around 12,000 deaths every year.”Explaining pandemic flu: A guide from the Chief Medical Officer

Dr Jefferson, a Cochrane Collaboration reviewer independent of drug companies is concerned that the flu vaccine is being hyped into the ‘must have flu prevention’. He stated in the British Medical Journal in October 2006, that given the huge resources involved in yearly vaccination campaigns, an urgent re-evaluation was needed, as fresh analysis of study data revealed much of the prior research was flawed with little proof of the ‘flu jab’s merit. His opinion is that flu vaccines not worth the effort. Influenza viruses vary from year to year so the effects of the vaccines are unknown and Jefferson has said:-

What you see is that marketing rules the response to influenza, and scientific evidence comes fourth or fifth.”: 2 Studies Question the Effectiveness of Flu Vaccines” – The New York Times By ELISABETH ROSENTHAL – September 21, 2005

People should ask whether it’s worth investing these trillions of dollars and euros in these vaccines.Studies question flu vaccines’ effectiveness” – The Seattle Times By Rob Stein [The Washington Post] Thursday, September 22, 2005

Dr Jefferson’s Summary points:-

  • urgent re-evaluation is needed because of the disparity between official panic and the lack of good evidence to support the steps taken
  • the best evidence shows current inactivated vaccines have little or no effect despite public policymakers world-wide recommending their use to prevent seasonal ‘flu outbreaks
  • most studies are of poor quality and the impact of confounding factors is high
  • little evidence exists on the safety of these vaccines

CBS News Investigation – Forced Swine Flu Vaccination Under Obama’s “National Emergency” Based on Wildly Exaggerated Statistics

As US President Barak Obama declares a national emergency in the USA over swine flu [US declares swine flu ’emergency’ BBC News 24th October] with some states passing laws for imprisonment and forcible vaccination [see Fox news video below] a news investigation by CBS TV of official state-by-state statistics has revealed that most US cases of “swine flu” are not swine flu and most people diagnosed did not have ‘flu.

In a months long CBS News investigation, state-by-state results of tests for H1N1 found that most cases were negative. The Wall Street Journal’s Alicia Mundy and Politico’s Fred Barbash spoke with Sharyl Attkisson about these startling findings:

CLICK TO SEE CBS NEWS REPORT ->  CBS News Exclusive: Study Of State Results Finds H1N1 Not As Prevalent As Feared – Oct. 21, 2009

 

In an Orwellian move Europeans may find difficult to comprehend, some US states like Massachussets are passing laws authorising police officers to  arrest, imprison and forcibly vaccinate adults and children can be removed from parents to be vaccinated:-

CBS News Finds H1N1 Tests “Overwhelmingly Negative”

CBS News first asked the US Centers for Disease Control for state-by-state test results. The CDC did not initially respond so CBS went to all 50 states directly, asking for their statistics on state lab-confirmed H1N1 flu cases prior to the halt of individual testing and counting in July. CBS found:

“The results reveal a pattern that surprised a number of health care professionals we consulted. The vast majority of cases were negative for H1N1 as well as seasonal flu, despite the fact that many states were specifically testing patients deemed to be most likely to have H1N1 flu, based on symptoms and risk factors, such as travel to Mexico.”

According to the CBS News study, when you come down with chills, fever, cough, runny nose, malaise and what you think are “flu-like” symptoms, 83 to 97 percent of the time the illness is caused by other viruses or bacteria and by influenza as little as 3 percent and at most 17 percent of the time.

Autism Increase Environmental Not Genetic – Says New Director of USA’s $30.5 Billion Health Research Budget

A controversy raging for two decades over the causes of the worldwide pandemic of autism in children was resolved unequivocally in formal evidence by Francis S. Collins, M.D., Ph.D.  in 2006 but little notice was taken then. Today Collins controls the  US’ annual medical research budget of US$30.5 billion: [NIH Budget] making Collins’ 2006 evidence of substantial international significance for many millions of parents and their children and for funding of research into the causes of autism.

The drug industry, medical experts, World Health Organisation and government health officials worldwide have systematically represented autism spectrum conditions as solely genetically caused whilst denying any role of childhood vaccines or other factors like environmental toxins.  Independent scientists, medical experts and parents contradict this and say there is good evidence autism is caused by vaccines and environmental toxins like mercury.

Collins as a leading medical doctor and geneticist who led the Human Genome Project confirmed in public to the US House of Representatives in May 2006 that recent increases in chronic diseases like diabetes, childhood asthma, obesity or autism must have an environmental [external] cause and cannot be solely genetically [internally] caused conditions: [full quote & weblink below].

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]

The NIH makes almost 50,000 competitive grants to more than 325,000 researchers at over 3,000 universities, medical schools, and other research institutions in every US state and around the world. About 10% of the NIH’s budget supports projects conducted by nearly 6,000 scientists in its own laboratories, most of which are on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland.

Collins was appointed and sworn in as the 16th Director of the US National Institutes of Health on 17th August 2009 after nomination by President Obama: NIH News Release 17th August 2009.

When Director of the US National Human Genome Research Institute Collins stated:-

Recent increases in chronic diseases like diabetes, childhood asthma, obesity or autism cannot be due to major shifts in the human gene pool as those changes take much more time to occur. They must be due to changes in the environment, including diet and physical activity, which may produce disease in genetically predisposed persons. Therefore, GEI will also invest in innovative new technologies/sensors to measure environmental toxins, dietary intake and physical activity, and using new tools of genomics, proteomics, and understanding metabolism rates to determine an individual’s biological response to those influences.

Francis S. Collins, M.D., Ph.D.,
Evidence to US House of Representatives Committee May 2006

But will Collins’ appointment make any difference to the present research position?  Will the influence of the pharmaceutical industry and financial conflicts of some in the medical professions prevent much needed research being carried out?  The position does not look too good as reported by award winning journalist David Kirby: [NIH Agency Head Backs Vaccine-Autism Research on Friday; Resigns from Federal Autism Panel on Saturday Huffington Post 20th October 2009].

Story Landis, PhD, director of the National Institute of Neurodevelopmental Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), an NIH agency, surprised many parents on Friday by stating that autism researchers should study “the children who have been most profoundly affected” by adverse reactions to vaccination.

On Saturday, Dr. Landis abruptly resigned from the powerful Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee (IACC), which helps direct hundreds of millions in federal tax dollars to autism research, treatment, care and services.

Kirby followed up with: NIH Director Francis Collins Blames Resignation Of Top Health Official From Autism Panel On “Tension And Lack Of Trust”

The controversy over the environmental causes of autism has its foundations in the now clearly flawed work of English psychiatrist Professor Sir Michael Rutter.  Our article of 25th January this year Autism Not Genetic – Says Expert Professor Simon Baron Cohen demonstrated the unscientific and flawed logic of Rutter’s original paper which has misled the world for so long: [“Infantile autism: A genetic study of 21 twin pairs.” J. Child Psychol. Psychiat. 18, 297-321 (1977)].

We stated:-

We …. can consign over 30 years of unscientific medical, psychiatric and psychological papers to the garbage. This brings a scientific approach to the issue since  the erroneous  genetic myth was first propounded with the publication of Professor Michael Rutter’s paper”

Another of our articles shows how Rutter put his name to a paper claiming that Japanese data showed MMR vaccine did not cause autism when analysis of official Japanese data formally published in several peer reviewed Japanese medical papers only a few years earlier showed it was clearly implicated along with other vaccines: Japanese Data Show Vaccines Cause Autism.   Rutter and his Japanese co-authors seemingly failed to locate earlier recent papers of direct relevance to their paper.  Here are the main graphs we published showing the linkage between vaccination and autism rates:-

080603_terada_graph

Here is the same data normalised by annual % of children receiving MMR vaccination – showing the same correspondence as above graph.090610 Terada Graph Data - by % Births.

In our story Autism Not Genetic – Says Expert Professor Simon Baron Cohen we also quoted British autism expert Professor Simon Baron Cohen of Cambridge University who also contradicted the position that autism is a genetic condition:-

We know that autism is not 100% genetic in origin, since in the case of identical twins (who share 100% of their genes), there are instances of one twin having autism and the other not having it. In fact, the likelihood of the co-twin also having autism where one of them has it (in monozygotic (MZ) pairs) is about 60%. This means that there must be some non-genetic (i.e., environmental) factors that are part of the cause of autism.“  [SOURCE: Professor Baron Cohen’s reply to critics of a mooted abortion test for autism reported in the UK’s Guardian Newspaper :- Professor Baron Cohen/Stone Correspondence Re: The Guardian New research brings autism screening closer to reality 12/Jan/09]

We showed that Baron Cohen was only partly correct and concluded by saying that the previous position on autism being a solely genetic condition is non science because:

  • identical twin studies show autism has an environmental [external] cause
  • to demonstrate autism has an [internal] ie. solely genetic cause, it is necessary to show autism occurs where no environmental causes apply
  • that has never been done
  • and that is likely because, as the evidence shows, autism is caused by environmental factors, just like most other human medical conditions

And we explained:-

In other words, it is the 40% of identical twins where only one develops symptoms of autism which tells us autism is not “genetic“.   In those cases it must have an environmental [external] cause.

Professor Baron Cohen errs in assuming the 60% of both twins developing autism is evidence autism is ever a genetically “caused” condition.  It is not such evidence. The correct medical terminology is whether a condition has an “internal” cause or an “external” one.

Because the twins are genetically identical all we can say for those who both develop autism is their bodies have responded identically to the same set of conditions whether “internal” or “external”. It tells us nothing about whether the cause is internal or external [environmental].  It is neither scientific nor logical to assume the “cause” is internal or external [environmental].  It is  wrong to do so and a logical fallacy.

Where both identical twins develop autism, it is more likely than not they have had the same exposure to the same environmental cause.  That is more likely than not to happen [60% of the time it seems].  For example, both twins are more likely than not to have their vaccinations at the same time and all other circumstances in their lives at that time are more likely than not to be identical for both.

All human medical conditions whether “internal” or “external” are genetic. Some of us are more susceptible to’ flu than others and some never suffer from it.  So it is also logically inappropriate to discuss causes of conditions in terms of being “genetic” because all human conditions are genetic whether the cause is “internal” or “external”.  This also demonstrates why it is not wise to rely on medical doctors’ attempts to be scientific.  The majority have no formal scientific training or qualifications and frequently make errors of the fundamental kind illustrated here.

We only become ill or develop any condition because we are genetic.   Everthing else breaks down.  Computers, cars, washing machines and refrigerators breakdown whether for an “internal” cause or an “external” one – they do not and cannot get ‘flu, measles or autism because they are not genetic.  If we were not genetic we would not get sick [but we might rust a bit from time-to-time].

There appears to be no scientific evidence autism is any more “genetic” than ‘flu. Feel free to submit a comment if you disagree.

To establish with scientific evidence that any condition has a solely genetic [internal] cause any more than any other illness or disorder requires evidence showing that in some cases there are no possible environmental causes.

The environmental causes have to be eliminated by the collection of evidence in a scientific manner.  This has not been done, as the reliance on the twin studies demonstrates.

What we can conclude is that autism is an environmentally [externally] caused condition, with some more susceptible than others, like most other human medical conditions.

Who Is Professor Sir Michael Rutter?

And:

  • might he at least subconsciously suffer from author bias?
  • does he have any potentially conflicting interests?”

It can help to follow the money.  In the money connections, you don’t get any bigger than Rutter. Psychiatrist Professor Sir Michael Rutter is a former (recent) Deputy Chairman of the immensely wealthy Wellcome Trust (founded by the Wellcome Foundation which is now Glaxo).  For confirmation of his status, see the 4th page of :-

The Wellcome Trust has assets of over £14 billion:-

The Trust hands out millions every year and has far more substantial reserves to enable it to do that.  And it can dictate a great deal of what research is carried out around the world.  See here for details:-

So Rutter is very influential.  You do not get to be in that position if you are not “in favour with pharma”. He is also one of the expert witnesses for Glaxo in the MMR litigation (something he did not declare, for example, in the Honda/Rutter paper denying MMR has any association with autism, but I do not see him before the GMC over that). Professor Rutter is also one of the main prosecution witnesses in the witchhunt in the British General Medical Council against medical doctors Andrew Wakefield, Simon Murch and Professor Walker-Smith. Here is a biographical note on Professor Sir Michael Rutter from the Academy of Medical Sciences which says:-

Professor Sir Michael Rutter is Professor of Developmental Psychopathology at the Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College, London.   He has been a consultant psychiatrist at the Maudsley Hospital since 1966, and was Professor of Child Psychiatry at the Institute of Psychiatry from 1973 to 1998.   He set up the Medical Research Council Child Psychiatry Research Unit in 1984 and the Social, Genetic and Developmental Psychiatry Centre 10 years later, being honorary director of both until October 1998.   His research has included the genetics of autism; the study of both school and family influences on children’s behaviour; the links between mental disorders in childhood and adult life; epidemiological approaches to test causal hypotheses; and gene-environment interplay.  He was Deputy Chairman of the Wellcome Trust from 1999 to 2004, and has been a Trustee of the Nuffield Foundation since 1992.  He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1987 and an honorary member of the British Academy in 2002.  He was a Founding Fellow of the Academia Europaea and the Academy of Medical Sciences, of which he is currently Clinical Vice-President. He has received numerous international honours and has published some 40 books and over 400 scientific papers and chapters.

Professor Sir Michael Rutter along with a troupe of psychiatrists now or formerly associated with The Maudsley Hospital and The Institute of Psychiatry at Kings College, London University, have been working hard at telling the public autism is solely genetic and denying there is a world autism pandemic. If a condition is genetic, you also do not suddenly get spontaneous mutation of large numbers of individuals.  That suggestion is counter logical and non science.  Genetics cannot account for the large rise we are seeing in autism since the mid 1980s.  So instead what we see are efforts by Rutter and the King’s Institute of Psychiatry other autism denialists to claim there is no real rise in the prevalence of autism.  This claim is unscientific and runs counter to the facts documented in the formal literature.

The Institute of Psychiatry has been an embarrassing place to be because of this April 2008 news item:-

BBC psychiatrist Tonmoy Sharma is struck off By Lucy Cockcroft The Telegraph  01 April /2008A psychiatrist who regularly appeared as an expert on the BBC has been struck off the medical register after he lied about his academic qualifications and performed unethical drugs tests on mentally ill patients.

The Institute of Psychiatry has or is home to more than its fair share of doctors (psychiatrists mostly) who publish papers claiming autism is genetic and denying there is an autism epidemic (the correct word is pandemic – epidemics have far fewer victims).  These doctors include Rutter, Eric Fombonne (now expert witness in the US in the thiomersal/autism litigation when he had previously published nothing about it) and Professor Simon Baron Cohen.

It is also home to controversial “Gulf War Syndrome” psychiatrist Simon Wessley, director of the Centre for Military Health Research at King’s College London and who had been claiming ME/CFS is not a physical condition but a mental one contrary to the definition used around the world.  Sophia Wilson is an example of an ME/CFS sufferer who died following this approach to diagnosis, albeit there is no evidence available to this author she was ever a patient of any of the psychiatrists or institutions name here.

Also associated with The Institute of Psychiatry and the Maudsley is Dr Ben Goldacre, who constantly attacks alternative medicine in The Guardian [a UK national newspaper] whilst writing the “Badscience” column – yet Goldacre has no scientific qualifications and avoids disclosing that he practises psychiatry.  Psychiatry is the least successful branch of medicine in history and is notorious for a lack of scientific bases to support the theories some of its proponents put out. Goldacre works with Wessley.

Goldacre and Wessley have close professional and personal connections to King’s Mobile Phones Research Unit.  Goldacre has made public attacks, backed by the industry funded lobby group, The Science Media Centre, on a BBC Panorama documentary about mobile phone hazards, which hazards were raised by the current head of the UK’s Health Protection Agency, before taking up that post.  Ben Goldacre and The Science Media Centre attacked the programme and its journalists.

Professor Rutter is also a friend of the editor of the journal which printed the Honda/Rutter MMR paper.  Here is his endorsement of the Journal:-

JCPP is clearly the world’s No. 1 child psychology and psychiatry journal.  It integrates clinical and developmental perspectives, it is truly international, and interdisciplinary, and it combines high scientific standards with attention to clinical relevance.” Prof. Sir Michael Rutter

http://www.blackwellpublishing.comjournal.asp?ref=0021-9630&site=1

Editor Charman is a contributor to Rutter’s book:-

Rutter’s Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Fifth Edition

Rutter was also an expert witness in Malmo, Sweden in an MMR autism case where the key question was whether autism was solely genetic and not environmental.  Rutter’s expert evidence was that it was genetic [not possible – Autism Not Genetic – Says Expert Professor Simon Baron Cohen].

And this could go on and on and on ………………….

When confronted with the above evidence on Rutter’s Japanese autism paper Charman refused to have the Honda/Rutter paper retracted or to publish a correction or rebuttal.  The publishing group Blackwell which published the Honda/Rutter paper have provided no comment.

More Fraud By Drug Giant Merck – US$650 Million

The US Justice Department announced a US$650 million fraud settlement agreed to by pharmaceutical giant Merck for a fraud on patients and the US government healthcare system involving a conspiracy with US hospitals to give the elderly cheaper drugs but charging them for the more expensive product prescribed by the patients’ doctors.

Do you really want to trust the safety of your children to drugs and vaccines from a company which behaves like this?

See the story on Youtube and also our sister story of other systematic fraud by Merck:-

Related sister story of systematic fraud by Merck [details also below]:-

Drug Giant Merck – “Destroy” Critical Doctors “Where They Live” – October 12, 2009

Court evidence now available on-line at the University of California library shows drug giant Merck systematically targetted “hit-lists” of doctors to discredit, neutralise or destroy critics of the safety and effectiveness of Merck’s drugs.

You can read the documents yourself [see links in the article]. One memo stated:

we may need to seek them out and destroy them where they live….

Dr Andrew Wakefield said when interviewed by CBS:-

This is not conspiracy.  This is corporate policy.“  – [CBS News – Research Links Kids Vaccines & Brain Damage – October 9, 2009 childhealthsafety].

Wakefield is the British medical doctor who put child health safety over autism and the MMR vaccine before his career and has been hounded by big money ever since.

Governments expect parents to trust the health and safety of their children to drug companies like Merck, a manufacturer of the MMR and other vaccines.

Other recent examples of blatant ‘fixing’ of the published scientific evidence base includes that by Merck and by drug maker Wyeth.

Merck paid medical journal publisher company Elsevier [whose CEO Sir Crispin Davis sits on GlaxoSmithKline’s board] to publish a fake medical journal with articles favourable to Merck’s drugs: [Merck published fake journal – Bob Grant – The Scientist – 30th April 2009].

Drug maker Wyeth flooded medical journals with some 40 ghostwritten articles penned by prominent physicians who sold their name for cash, in an all-out effort to offset the scientific evidence linking its female hormone replacement drug, Prempro, to breast cancer: [Judge orders Wyeth papers unsealed – Associated Press – July 25, 2009].

Covert lobbying and manipulation is endemic:-

‘The use of PR to counter negative publicity’

‘221. ………. Considerable resources are invested into building long-term, sustainable relationships with stakeholders and ‘key opinion leaders‘ and journalists. These relationships are used to promote the use of certain brands and counter concerns relating to safety. Efforts to undermine critical voices in particular were identified, under terms of “issues management”. In later evidence, in response to the ISM’s memorandum, Pfizer stated that PR is entirely legitimate and can “help to educate and inform”. According to the PMCPA, PR activities may include “placing articles in the lay press, TV documentaries, soap operas etc“.’ [p60 ‘The Influence of the Pharmaceutical industry‘ 2004 – English Parliamentary Health Select Committee report [emphasis added]]

Flu Vaccine – Healthy Test Volunteer Coughing Blood Dismissed as “Not Caused by Vaccine”

Researchers Dismiss Munich Swine Flu Vaccine Test Subject Complaints of Horror Side-effects

This week the UK starts its swine flu vaccination campaign with doubts over the safety of the vaccine.

A participant in the German H1N1 vaccine trials suffered serious adverse reactions, including coughing up blood, but the lead researcher in the trial dismisses this as not caused by the vaccine: Swine Flu Vaccine: A test subject speaks out. Complaints of Horror Side-Effects Dismissed reports Nina Bautz of German newspaper Munich Merkur 21/8/09 – Google English Translation here.

[See also CHS’s companion stories: Flu Vaccine Cripples Healthy US Cheerleader for Life and Gardasil Victims – In Memoriam – Healthy Young Women – Aged 15 to 21 ].

Graduate businessman Axel Sch. (40). claims : “The vaccination has made me ill! – the test is irresponsible.” He says that within a few hours after the vaccination, on August 10, he had sweat on his forehead. “I felt totally beat. On the third day, my kidneys and head were aching and I got a fever. I then had a coughing fit – and the wash basin was suddenly red – it was blood!”

Next week the UK starts vaccinating pregnant women, people with chronic respiratory, heart, kidney liver or neurological diseases, those with diabetes requiring insulin or oral hypoglycaemic drugs, those who suffer from immunosuppression from disease or treatment and those who live with people having compromised immune systems, such as cancer patients. Immunisation of frontline health workers began this week.

LMU-medical researcher Frank von Sonnenburg, who is in charge of the German country-wide vaccine safety trial, does not consider these accounts credible.  He says that such side-effects cannot be related to the vaccine.  He does not deny that, as with other flu-vaccinations, flu-like symptoms may occur as a reaction to the vaccination. “Additionally, there may be light pain, redness or swelling at the injection site. Obviously many of the test subjects would have side-effects. We do such a study precisely because we want to find out any possible side-effects.”

Axel Sch. however insists that his complaints were a result of the vaccination. “Surely it is no coincidence that they occurred directly after the vaccination.” He criticizes the university, saying that he was not properly informed prior to the study. He said that for three days he was flat on his back during this heat. “When I phoned the LMU, they simply asked me the question needed to fill in their form and told me to see my doctor.” He now wants the medical costs and loss of earnings compensated by the medical insurance covering the trial.

The original report of this story in German newspaper Munich Merkur had no report of any other explanation for Axel Sch.’s condition.

Axel Sch. has participated in medical trials even when he was a student. He had also had good experiences with an LMU flu-vaccine study. “This is the reason why I immediately consented when they asked me if I would test the new vaccine.”

Now his trust in research is gone, he is quitting the vaccine trial.

Drug Giant Merck – “Destroy” Critical Doctors “Where They Live”

Court evidence now available on-line at the University of California library shows drug giant Merck systematically targetted “hit-lists” of doctors to discredit, neutralise or destroy critics of the safety and effectiveness of Merck’s drugs.

You can read the documents yourself at the links below [see heading at end “Merck Documents Revealed in Court Evidence”].

One memo stated:

we may need to seek them out and destroy them where they live….”

Dr Andrew Wakefield said when interviewed by CBS:-

This is not conspiracy.  This is corporate policy.”  – [CBS News – Research Links Kids Vaccines & Brain Damage – October 9, 2009 childhealthsafety].

Wakefield is the British medical doctor who put child health safety over autism and the MMR vaccine before his career and has been hounded by big money ever since.

Governments expect parents to trust the health and safety of their children to drug companies like Merck, a manufacturer of the MMR and other vaccines.

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]

Other recent examples of blatant ‘fixing’ of the published scientific evidence base includes that by Merck and by drug maker Wyeth.

Merck paid medical journal publisher company Elsevier [whose CEO Sir Crispin Davis sits on GlaxoSmithKline’s board] to publish a fake medical journal with articles favourable to Merck’s drugs: [Merck published fake journal – Bob Grant – The Scientist – 30th April 2009].

Drug maker Wyeth flooded medical journals with some 40 ghostwritten articles penned by prominent physicians who sold their name for cash, in an all-out effort to offset the scientific evidence linking its female hormone replacement drug, Prempro, to breast cancer: [Judge orders Wyeth papers unsealed – Associated Press – July 25, 2009].

Covert lobbying and manipulation is endemic:-

‘The use of PR to counter negative publicity’

‘221. ………. Considerable resources are invested into building long-term, sustainable relationships with stakeholders and ‘key opinion leaders‘ and journalists. These relationships are used to promote the use of certain brands and counter concerns relating to safety. Efforts to undermine critical voices in particular were identified, under terms of “issues management”. In later evidence, in response to the ISM’s memorandum, Pfizer stated that PR is entirely legitimate and can “help to educate and inform”. According to the PMCPA, PR activities may include “placing articles in the lay press, TV documentaries, soap operas etc“.’ [p60 ‘The Influence of the Pharmaceutical industry‘ 2004 – English Parliamentary Health Select Committee report [emphasis added]]

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]

FOR MORE READ MMR Causes Autism – Another Win In US Federal Court

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.”
