USA: Public Confidence in Vaccines Sags

Public Confidence in Vaccines Sags, New Report Finds
A new survey finds decreases in public trust in vaccine safety and value, a trend experts say is worrying.
According to a survey released Monday by the American Society for Microbiology and Research America, the percentage of American adults who say it's "very important" to have their children vaccinated was down 11 points over the past decade, at 71 percent in May from 82 percent in 2008. The percentage that expressed confidence in the system for evaluating the safety of vaccines to determine their proper use dropped 8 percentage points, from 85 percent in 2008 to 77 percent in May.
Likewise, the survey found that the percentage of Americans who strongly believe they have benefited from the development of vaccines over the past 50 years has dropped from 75 percent a decade ago to 59 percent this month. The percentage of those who believe they have benefitted from vaccines at least somewhat during that period remained largely unchanged, though, at 87 percent overall compared to 90 percent 10 years ago.

Common childhood cancer 'partly caused by lack of infection'

Most common childhood cancer 'partly caused by lack of infection'

Clean modern homes, antiseptic wipes and the understandable desire to protect small babies against any infection are all part of the cause of the most common form of childhood cancer, a leading expert has concluded after more than 30 years of research.
Childhood acute leukaemia, says the highly respected Prof Mel Greaves, is nothing to do with power lines or nuclear fuel reprocessing stations. Nor is it to do with hot dogs and hamburgers or the Vatican radio mast, as have also been suggested. After the best part of a century of speculation, some of it with little basis in science, Greaves – who recently won the Royal Society’s prestigious Royal Medal – says the cancer is caused by a combination of genetic mutations and a lack of childhood infection.
There is a similar story at work in type 1 diabetes, Hodgkin’s lymphoma, multiple sclerosis and allergies, he says.
ALL rates are low or non-existent in the poorest countries, where families have lots of children and cross-infection is common. One exception is Costa Rica, which has invested heavily in medical schools and its health system, and brought down family sizes from 7.2 children on average to 2.3. They now have significant levels of Hodgkin’s lymphoma, type 1 diabetes and ALL.

Childhood Illnesses Protect from Cancer - Compilation

Childhood Illnesses Protect from Cancer

Humanity lives synergistically with bacteria, viruses, and pathogens. They actually have a purpose. 

MUMPS: Researchers investigated whether mumps might engender immunity to ovarian cancer through antibodies against the cancer-associated antigen MUC1 abnormally expressed in the inflamed parotid gland.

MEASLES: Albonico et al found that adults are significantly protected against non-breast cancers — genital, prostate, gastrointestinal, skin, lung, ear-nose-throat, and others — if they contracted measles (odds ratio, OR = 0.45), rubella (OR = 0.38) or chickenpox (OR = 0.62) earlier in life. [Med Hypotheses 1998; 51(4): 315-20].

MEASLES: Montella et al found that contracting measles in childhood reduces the risk of developing lymphatic cancer in adulthood [Leuk Res 2006; 30(8): 917-22].

MEASLES: Alexander et al found that infection with measles during childhood is significantly protective — it cuts the risk in half — against developing Hodgkin’s disease (OR = 0.53) [Br J Cancer 2000; 82(5): 1117-21].

MEASLES: Glaser et al also found that lymph cancer is significantly more likely in adults who were not infected with measles, mumps or rubella in childhood [In J Cancer 2005; 115(4): 599-605].

COMMON INFECTIONS: Gilham et al found that infants with the least exposure to common infections have the greatest risk of developing childhood leukemia [BMJ 2005; 330: 1294].

Our bodies are amazing. Even getting an illness is part of our bodies journey to transformation and total health. Dr. Stephanie Seneff (Senior Research Scientist MIT) made this fairly new discovery in regard to the flu virus.

She says we live in a symbiotic relationship with all the other species, even the pathogens. The Flu virus goes into the muscles cells and reprograms them to hand over their sulfate. The flu virus delivers the sulfate to your blood. The sulfate cleans your blood by killing off the weak cells allowing growth for new cells. In effect, the flu virus is rescuing your blood from a future meltdown (more serious illnesses, perhaps cancer).

The potential meltdown was there before getting the flu. It's much like an overcrowded Forrest that catches fire to thin and clear out the debris and weak trees. It's a natural process. Depending on what we eat, if we exercise, and if we take supplements to fortify our forest (blood) keeping only the strongest trees (cells) to begin with. Getting sick with the flu isn't bad, it's actually good for your body. You are cleaning house. "

Conflict of interest on recommendation of immunization schedule?

Conflict of interest on recommendation of immunization schedule?

TNN | Updated: Jan 15, 2013, 12:52 IST

The vaccine schedule recommended by the Indian Academy of Paediatrics (IAP) includes almost every vaccine for children available in the Indian market.
Interestingly, of the fund of Rs 27.8 lakh with the Indian Academy of Pediatrics Committee of Immunisation (IAPCOI), Rs 26.8 lakh was contributed by vaccine manufacturers including Sanofi Pasteur, GSK, MerckPfizer and Serum Institute. This is stated in the IAP 2012 annual report. Yet, the IAPCOI insists that there is no conflict of interest in its recommendations.

The 2012 immunisation schedule of the IAP, which includes many of the newer and expensive vaccines not included in the national immunization programme, is supposed to be for paediatricians in "office practice" , ie private practice. In the December 2012 issue of the journal Indian Pediatrics, Dr Sanjiv Lewin from the Department of Paediatrics, Clinical Ethics and Medical Education in St John's Medical College Hospital in Bangalore raises the issue of huge profit margins and the ethics of physician-industry relationships saying that "methods used to market vaccinations are sometimes controversial with aggressive practices to market vaccines of questionable public health significance" .

(Source: IAP Annual Report 2012)

Dr Lewin draws attention to the declaration of no competing interests by the authors of the IAPCOI schedule pointing out that "as physicians, we have much to gain, especially from vaccine prescriptions with excellent margins of profit" . He also points out how nine out of 10 special invitees to the meeting of the IAPCOI were from the vaccine industry, which he says is "certainly a gross conflict of interest" . In response, the IAPCOI convener states that going by Dr Lewin's yardstick, no practising physician should be eligible to participate in any decision making body. The industry, he points out, is "an integral part of the system that affects every aspect related to vaccines" .

IAPCOI convenor Dr Vipin Vashishtha stated that the committee was aware of the issues of conflict of interest and took great care to ensure it did not interfere with the recommendations. "Our funding might have been from the industry earlier. But as far as I know we now get funding from the IAP central body. We know there are huge margins, as much as Rs 600-700 per dose in the case of some vaccines. We are talking to the industry to reduce the margins to make the vaccines more cost effective," says Dr Vashishtha.

Non-mandatory vaccines for babies: A hefty dose of profit

TNN | Updated: Jan 15, 2013, 12:40 IST

Vaccinations for babies are proving to be excellent moneyspinners for doctors, especially the newer ones that have not been recommended by the government and are not part of the national immunisation programme. On a single dose, doctors can make a profit of anything from Rs 200 to over Rs 600 depending on the vaccine being given and the brand chosen. The profit margins are much higher for the non-mandatory vaccines (see table on right).
The Medical Council of India (MCI) has banned doctors from taking a gift of more than Rs 1,000 to ensure that they are not induced by companies to prescribe their products . However, the hefty profit margins being offered to doctors on every single dose could be an even better inducement and cumulatively worth much more than Rs 1,000.

At six weeks of age, by administering the first doses of pentavalent vaccine, the rotavirus vaccine and pneumococcal vaccine, the doctor could make anywhere between Rs 800 and Rs 1,400 per baby. This does not include the vaccination/consultation fee charged by the doctor, which is anywhere between Rs 200 and Rs 500. Many of these vaccines require three doses and hence the profit margin could be as high as Rs 2,400 to Rs 4,200 per baby vaccinated. By the time the baby is 15 months old, vaccines alone could cost parents between Rs 15,000 and Rs 28,000.

This practice had been highlighted in a 2010 study published in the Indian Journal of Medical Ethics. The study was done by Dr Rakesh Lodha of the Department of Paediatrics, AIIMS, and Dr Anurag Bhargav of Jan Swasthya Sahyog in Chhattisgarh.

Health minister Ghulam Nabi Azad had referred to it in April 2010 in his reply to a question in the Lok Sabha on doctors being bribed by pharmaceutical companies. He had said that though companies offered the vaccines to doctors at hugely reduced prices, patients were being charged the full price. However, even two years later, the health ministry has done nothing to address the problem.

“What the doctor is charging is legal since that is the marked price,” argues a paediatrician. He maintains that patients are likely to suspect the quality of the vaccine if they are not charged the MRP. Tanushree, mother of a two-monthold baby, says parents have no idea about the profit margins doctors can rake in on vaccinations. “We just go by whatever the doctor bills us. The doctor opens the bottle, fills the syringe, injects the baby and then disposes the stuff in the dustbin. When do we get to see the MRP?” she asks.

“The doctor did tell us that the vaccines not listed in the immunisation programme are optional. He said they were good for the baby but not mandatory . We trust the doctor to do the best for the baby,” says Tanushree. The important question here is whether doctors are betraying that trust.

My paediatrician (Jayanta Kumar Chakraborty, Regn # 40138 of WBMC) used to charge us an extra Rs300/500/800/1200 extra according to his whims. This was in addition to the MRP of the vaccine and his consultation fees. Initially, we did not understand that this was happening because he used to dispose the vaccine packs immediately into the dustbin after giving the vaccine and would ask us to pay a certain amount. When we started to check the vaccine packs and found that he was charging 25% to 125% higher than the vaccine MRP, we asked him the reason for the same and he came up with a wide variety of excuses. Once he said that he was charging us for the cost incurred by him for storage, on another occasion his excuse was that he was charging for consultation given over phone. In any case, he did not inform us in advance that he would charge more than the MRP of the vaccine. 
Also, he would prescribe all types of vaccines available under the sun. We have lodged a complaint against him at the police station and also referred the matter to the gynaecologist who referred him. We plan to report the matter to the MCI and Consumer Forum.

13 Things You Don't Know About Polio

13 Things You Don't Know About Polio - version 3.0

1. A pesticide common in the 1800's was called Paris Green. A green liquid because it was a combination of copper and arsenic or lead and arsenic. Some of the most toxic substances known to humankind.

2. This pesticide worked by causing neurological damage in the bugs, causing organ failure.

3. Polio consists of symptoms synonymous with neurological damage, causing organ failure.

4. Heavy metal poisoning from lead, mercury and other similar heavy metals manifest lesions on neurological tissues, meaning the toxin destroys the nerve/communication pathways connecting the brain to the organs in the body. 

5. Polio victims present lesions on neurological tissue, that cause the organs to malfunction all around the body. (lungs, heart, nerves that control walking etc)

6. Polio outbreaks hit throughout the summer, only during pesticide spraying times. (not the sunless and damp winter/spring seasons regarding other disease outbreaks)

7. Polio had NO ability to spread from infected victims to the uninfected. Polio infected clusters of people in the exact same areas, suddenly and swiftly.

8. Parents report finding their children paralyzed in and around apple orchards. One of the most heavily pesticide sprayed crops of the time (with lead arsenate or copper arsenate) were apple orchards.

9. President Roosevelt became paralyzed over night while on his farm in the summer, which contained many crops, including apple orchards. He also swam the day prior in a bay that was heavily polluted by industrial agricultural run off.

10. Dr. Ralph Scobey and Dr. Mortind Biskind testified in front of the U.S Congress in 1951 that the paralysis around the country known as polio was being caused by industrial poisons and that a virus theory was purposely fabricated by the chemical industry and the government to deflect litigation away from both parties.

11. In 1956 the AMA (The American Medical Association) instructed each licensed medical doctor that they could no longer classify polio as polio, or their license to practice would be terminated. Any paralysis was now to be diagnosed as AFP (acute flaccid paralysis) MS, MD, Bell's Palsy, cerebral palsy, ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease), Guillian-Barre, meningitis etc etc. This was orchestrated purposely to make the public believe polio was eradicated by the polio vaccine campaign but because the polio vaccine contained toxic ingredients directly linked to paralysis, polio cases (not identified as polio) were skyrocketing...but only in vaccinated areas.

12. The first polio vaccine was worked on by Dr. Jonas Salk and human experiments using this vaccine were conducted purposely on orphans in government/church run institutions because they were vulnerable and didn't require any parental consent signatures, as they had no parents. The vaccine was "declared safe" by "medicine" (as they always are even though that vaccine was killing and paralyzing monkeys in test trials) and that vaccine gave 40,000 orphans polio, permanently paralyzed hundreds and killed at least 10 children. All injuries and deaths under reported of course by the same authorities who orchestrated the atrocity. This was called The Cutter Incident. Have you noticed the medical industry's obsession with poisoning children?

13. The next "improved" polio vaccine, given to hundreds of millions, carried both the SV 40 cancer virus as well as the AIDS virus. Every step of the way, medicine declaring they know for sure, that this time, they have everything straightened out. Same story then, same story now. The only thing larger than the pile of broken medical and government promises, is the pile of broken and dead bodies. Cancerous tumors, still being pulled out of people today, are riddled with SV40 cancer viruses from the government's "safe and effective" and "approved" polio vaccine.

When someone talks of any disease, in this day and age, they're often just repeating what they were told by the government. When someone today repeats anything about polio and polio elimination based on vaccination, they're repeating known lies, told by known liars. Repeating what you're told and intelligence aren't the same thing. Repeating or intelligence. The choice is yours. Research the hidden history of polio, the disease that never was.

Vaccines did not prevent mortality, rather now causing deaths.

Infectious diseases declined steadily for decades prior to vaccinations.

Australian Doctor Spills the Beans on Vaccines

Australia: Doctor Reveals Case Histories from 40 Years of Vaccine Injuries

Dr. John Piesse, MD, has practiced medicine in Australia for over 40 years, but now he may have his medical license revoked and could face prosecution for writing vaccine exemptions for children who are at risk of illness or death from vaccines.  Dr. Piesse warns that vaccines include additives like aluminum, mercury, polysorbate 80, viruses, and formaldahyde, all of which which can cause serious injury.  He accuses the US Center for Disease Control for committing outright fraud when it claims that vaccines do not cause autism.  He says that, as long as doctors and governments continue to be hood-winked into believing that vaccines do not cause autism, no action will be taken to stop the alarming surge in the autism epidemic. –GEG

Here, in full, is a letter Dr. Piesse recently wrote to The Age. Read it. Study it. Understand it. This isn’t the unhinged raving of a madman, as the press would have you believe.
This is basic truth that every parent should have and own:
“I have been encountering cases of vaccine injury for over 40 years. In June it was a happy, healthy nearly 5-year-old whose parents were required to put her on a catch-up schedule, in order to get her into kindergarten. She won’t be going to kinder. She’s in a wheel-chair, brain-damaged. Her life ruined. Then came a friend’s father who died after a flu vaccine, and last week a 4 year old boy, made autistic by a catch-up schedule.”
“In 1988, the US National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program was created. It has paid out over US$3.5 billion to the vaccine-injured. The NVICP was set up to protect vaccine manufacturers from ruinous costs of litigation by vaccine-damaged people. It was deemed preferable to have ‘unavoidably unsafe’ vaccines than no vaccines. Unfortunately the protection provided to vaccine manufacturers also reduced incentives to develop safer vaccines in USA.”
“Vaccines contain health-damaging ingredients, not the least aluminium – a known neurotoxin implicated along with mercury, in brain damage as in autism, developmental delay, ADHD, and learning difficulties. Aluminium is also a powerful promoter of auto-immune diseases. Vaccines can claim to be mercury-free if their mercury content is below a still-toxic threshold. Most influenza vaccines contain mercury – also a neurotoxin. In addition, polysorbate 80 in vaccines increases the permeability of the blood brain barrier and potentiates the risks of these neurotoxins. The known presence of carcinogenic viruses in the MMR vaccine, has been covered-up. Vaccines also contain formaldehyde, a known carcinogen.”
“Proof of vaccine safety requires rigorously conducted clinical studies comparing vaccinated versus truly unvaccinated children for health outcomes. Are there any such studies that confirm that vaccinated children are not worse-off than those unvaccinated? No. There are none. Hence, child vaccines are unproven for safety – an inconvenient truth for a profession that prides itself on being scientific.”
“One analysis indicated that national infant mortality rates were proportional to the number of vaccine doses (Miller NZ 2011), contradictory to the claim that ‘vaccination saves lives’.”
“From mid-2015, parents who wished not to vaccinate their children, started to converge on my practice seeking assistance with gaining exemption from the penalties directed at non-vaccinators by the No Jab No Pay and No Jab No Play Legislation.”
“Analysis up to the end of 2016 of parent’s reasons for not vaccinating, indicated that 64% of 166 parents knew of vaccine-damaged individuals in their own family. The study of ‘Adversomics’ confirms polymorphic and genomic susceptibility factors common to vaccine–damaged individuals and their families. (Poland GA 2015). 40% of unvaccinated children had pre-existing health problems that parents considered would make them more at risk of harm from vaccines. 60% of unvaccinated children were very healthy, but only 6% of the vaccinated children. There were no cases of autism in 212 unvaccinated children, but 8 autism cases in the 50 vaccinated children (16%), and 36% with ASD [autism spectrum disorder], compared to 1.4% in the unvaccinated.”
“As yet there are no large-scale vaccinated versus truly unvaccinated studies of the sort needed prove that vaccines do or do not cause autism.”
“So where does the widespread belief that vaccines do not cause autism derive? In a nutshell: from an over-whelming quantity of ‘manufactured science’ of low quality, scientific fraud, and ignoring evidence supporting causality. Few doctors and politicians are aware of the pivotal scientific fraud committed in the US Centers for Disease Control. A study of the MMR vaccine in black American babies showed a 2.5 fold higher level of autism in babies given the MMR vaccine at 12 months of age compared to 3 years. The CDC refused to publish these findings but manipulated the data to disguise the undeniable association found. The fraudulent data was then published (DeStefano F 2004 ) and promoted as the final statement on the question. Thereafter the official line was that vaccination did not cause autism. 5000 vaccine-damaged children had their applications in the Vaccine Court for compensation quashed after this deception. But [CDC] whistle-blower William Thompson released the true unabridged data which was published briefly until pressure from the CDC forced its retraction (Hooker B 2014)”
“A recent study of home-school students showed a 6.6 fold increase in neurodevelopmental disorders in the vaccinated group over the unvaccinated. Autism spectrum disorders were 4.7 times more prevalent in the vaccinated children (Mawson AR 2017).”

“So long as doctors and governments continue to be hood-winked into believing that vaccines do not cause autism, no action will be taken to stop the alarming surge in the autism epidemic. A tragedy that need not happen if we demand good science and safe vaccines.”

When I started my campaign, sometime in 1985, on the internet from 2000, doctors responded by saying that vaccine safety was beyond question, they were as safe as water. Later as I intensified my campaign and cited peer reviewed published material on risks from vaccines[1], they modified their stance to; well all medications have some risk. Now they fall back upon the risk-benefit analysis meaning that the benefits outweigh the risks. Question is who decides? Must an informed public not be allowed to take that decision? I will touch on this topic in a generalised fashion so that all can comprehend what I am trying to say.
