The US Congress Should Investigate the CDC for the Vaccine Autism Link Cover Up

The Congressional Inquiry Into CDC Vaccine-Autism Link Cover Up Should Include:

The charges against CDC 

1. The two Verstreaten studies initially showing an RR of 11.35 reduced to 7.62 by Verstraeten and colleagues before calling in the experts in 2000 whereby one study was modified to 'no association' and published in Pediatrics. The other study showing an association of 7.62 lies unpublished as the Simpsonwood records were pried open by FOIA. 

2. The Vaccine Safety Datalink on which the Verstraeten study was based was partially destroyed and shipped out of the USA to keep it out of FOIA ambit after Dr Geier accessed the database to show the same 11.35 association 

3. The Danish studies showing 'no association' found later to have been fabricated as the principal author Dr Poul Thorsen had pocketed a significant portion of the grant and is on the most wanted list of US Police. He faces a lifetime in jail after extradition. His university has sacked and disowned him. 

4. The DeStefano study is under a cloud after his CDC co-author Dr William Thompson has admitted large scale data manipulation. Original data handed over to Dr Brian Hooker found a 340% increase in afro-asian children following vaccinations. 

5. The CDC is yet to retract the fraudulent studies. 

The US Congress has actually questioned the CDC on many of these issues but the CDC is yet to reply and is trying to obfuscate the public with false reporting on the issue. The US Congress is still on the hunt and the next hearing is awaited.

Fugitive Profiles

https://oig.hhs.gov/fraud/fugitives/profiles.asp

OIG Fugitive: Poul Thorsen


Poul Thorsen
  • From approximately February 2004 until February 2010, Poul Thorsen executed a scheme to steal grant money awarded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). CDC had awarded grant money to Denmark for research involving infant disabilities, autism, genetic disorders, and fetal alcohol syndrome. CDC awarded the grant to fund studies of the relationship between autism and the exposure to vaccines, the relationship between cerebral palsy and infection during pregnancy, and the relationship between developmental outcomes and fetal alcohol exposure.
  • Thorsen worked as a visiting scientist at CDC, Division of Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities, before the grant was awarded.
  • The initial grant was awarded to the Danish Medical Research Council. In approximately 2007, a second grant was awarded to the Danish Agency for Science, Technology, and Innovation. Both agencies are governmental agencies in Denmark. The research was done by the Aarhaus University and Odense University Hospital in Denmark.
  • Thorsen allegedly diverted over $1 million of the CDC grant money to his own personal bank account. Thorsen submitted fraudulent invoices on CDC letterhead to medical facilities assisting in the research for reimbursement of work allegedly covered by the grants. The invoices were addressed to Aarhaus University and Sahlgrenska University Hospital. The fact that the invoices were on CDC letterhead made it appear that CDC was requesting the money from Aarhaus University and Sahlgrenska University Hospital although the bank account listed on the invoices belonged to Thorsen.
  • In April 2011, Thorsen was indicted on 22 counts of Wire Fraud and Money Laundering.
  • According to bank account records, Thorsen purchased a home in Atlanta, a Harley Davidson motorcycle, an Audi automobile, and a Honda SUV with funds that he received from the CDC grants.
  • Thorsen is currently in Denmark and is awaiting extradition to the United States.

They did reject Autism as a direct adverse effect of the MMR specifically, but in view of these revelations that may be revisited.

The CDC responded to these claims stating that they recognize this study showed an increased risk of autism from the MMR:

Vaccine Strain Polio Viruses - Greatest Threat of Polio


Emerging form of poliovirus threatens hopes for eradication

by Erin Digitale
http://medicalxpress.com/news/2015-04-emerging-poliovirus-threatens-eradication.html
Emerging form of poliovirus threatens hopes for eradication

Circulating vaccine-derived polioviruses are "the biggest surprise" that scientists have encountered in their work to end polio, said Walter Orenstein, MD, lead author of a 2014 clinical report about  from the American Academy of Pediatrics and a professor of medicine at Emory University. The viruses "are genotypically vaccine, but phenotypically wild virus," Orenstein explained; in other words, they look genetically like the vaccine, but behave in nature like their wild counterparts.
How a mutated virus regains power
These vaccine-derived viruses are escapees. They start in the intestines of a tiny fraction of people who receive the oral . The  uses live, but attenuated, strains of poliovirus, meaning the pathogen has been altered to be harmless—or at least much less virulent. In about one in a million people, though, the attenuated poliovirus mutates in such a way that it regains its potency. Sometimes, it sickens the individual who got the vaccine, a problem known to doctors for decades.
What's come as a surprise, however, is that even if these mutated viruses fail to affect the person in whom they originate, they may escape into the environment in the individuals' feces and start infecting people like wild viruses do: In areas with poor sanitation systems, untreated sewage spreads the new viruses to others, who can become sickened. For instance, in Nigeria during the first nine months of 2014, 21 polio cases were caused by the circulating vaccine-derived viruses, compared to six cases from the wild virus, according to a report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In the same period, Pakistan had 22 cases from circulating vaccine-derived viruses and 170 from wild viruses, while Afghanistan had no cases from vaccine-derived viruses and nine from wild poliovirus, the CDC reported.
The risk is prompting public health experts to re-examine how best to protect children in developing countries from polio. For example, with a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Maldonado is collecting data in communities in Mexico that are changing their polio-vaccination strategy.
"It's important to understand how we can phase out the live-virus vaccine, so that we can use the killed vaccine in the best way possible," Maldonado said, referring to a vaccination method that uses an injection of dead poliovirus. "We want not only to prevent circulation of natural polio, but also to understand how to prevent the viruses derived from the live vaccine from becoming the next source of paralysis in communities."

Scientists, Mainstream Doctors Endorse Homeopathy - Not a Placebo!

Homeopathy is not a placebo science
Sunday, 12 April 2015 - 7:00am IST | Agency: dna | From the print edition


Scientists discuss research to address medication and vaccines for diseases like cancer, AIDS, swine flu and MDR-TB at world summit
http://www.dnaindia.com/mumbai/report-homeopathy-is-not-a-placebo-science-2076685 
  • From left: Dr Abhay Chowdhary, Dr Kajaksha Ghosh, Dr Jayesh Bellare, Dr Alakpita Paranjpe and Dr Rajesh Shah at the conference
Contrary to popular belief, homeopathy is not a placebo science, said a group of eminent scientists at the World Homeopathy Summit being held in the city this weekend. It has been long believed that consuming homeopathic medicine has a psychological effect on the patient which leads to some of them getting cured. Busting this and other myths, scientists from Haffkine Institute in Parel, Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) at Chembur, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT-B) in Powai, and the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research (TIFR) shared their research at the summit, which has attracted scientists and doctors from different parts of the world including Italy, Brazil and Austria.

Critic claim that because homeopathy medicines are very highly diluted, they are merely believed to have a placebo effect. However, research by Dr Jayesh Bellare, head of department, Chemical Engineering, at IIT-B, and his team has proved that they do contain nano-particles of medicinal molecules. "While earlier it was thought that homeopathic medicines do not contain medicinal molecules, high resolution microscopes used in the IIT-B lab to observe the medicines found that the molecules do exist in nano sizes," said Dr Bellare.
Physicists at TIFR and BARC have detected the effect of energy particles in homeopathy using laser beams and electrical devices. Former BARC scientist and physicist, Dr Akalpita Paranjpe talked about an electrical device called 'Medical Analyser' which measures the effects of homeopathy medicines on a person's physiology. "We measured the heart rate of a person before and after administering homeopathic medicine Sulphur 200. We noticed that the body reacts to Sulphur 200 and that the ill person goes back to being normal after being administered the medicine," said Dr Paranjpe.
Dr Kanjaksha Ghosh, director, National Institute of Immunohaematology (NII) vouches for homeopathytherapy to cure bleeding disorder in haemophilia patients. "In a study conducted in Surat, Mumbai and Nasik, in 500 cases of haemophilic patients, internal bleeding has been stalled by administering homeopathic drugs," said Dr Ghosh. "There have been cases when the Factor 8 and 9 injections for haemophilia management have been unavailable or very expensive, one-year treatment can cost lakhs of rupees. Homeopathy drugs have proven effective in saving their lives," said Dr Ghosh.
Virologist Dr Abhay Chowdhury at Haffkine Institute said they are working on a homeopathy-based drug or a nosode, which is sourced from tuberculosis germs of multi-drug resistant TB patients. The nosode, which is hoped to improve the condition of TB patients, will undergo animal trials in the near future, said Dr Chowdhury.
Where is global research in homeopathy headed?
Austrian molecular biologist Dr Michael Frass and Indian scientist Dr Gaurisankar Sa have proved anti-cancer activities of homeopathy in laboratory experiments on cell lines extracted from the human body. Dr Gaurisankar also demonstrated the regression of cancer in rats after giving homeopathy medicines.
Swine flu may have preventive homeopathy, a Brazil researcher has found. Scientist from Brazil University conducted a study and proved the role of homeopathy medicine sourced from influenza virus itself to prevent the disease.
"Homeopathy is personalised medicine and homeopaths are the first technocrats in medicine in terms of use of computer software in early times for their analysis. MUHS is going to volunteer for meta-analysis in homeopathy. Human genes have a memory of health and diseases. Homeopathy helps to decode this information. Allopathy has scope only for curing only 40 per cent of diseases, which are mostly infectious and nutritional diseases," says Dr Arun Jamkar, Maharashtra University of Health Sciences (MUHS).

Natural Viral Infections Lead to Cancer Remission

Polio, Herpes, and Other Viruses Treat Cancer

Doctors have known about oncolytic viruses since the mid-1800s (since before they even really knew what a virus was), when they started reporting that tumors sometimes went into remission for a while following a bout of natural viral infection.
Sometimes it was infection with the measles, or the flu, and in at least one case, the chicken pox caused temporary regression of lymphatic leukemia.
In the 1950s and ’60s, the ability to propagate viruses in the lab instead of only in living organisms, made it possible for researchers to begin exploring the potential of oncolytic viruses to cure cancer.
 Polio,herpesmeasles, and mumps are among the so-called oncolytic viruses, which preferentially infect and kill cancer cells.  
Although the medical community has known about oncolytic viruses for over a century, it’s only now that their power is being harnessed for viable cancer treatments.

"Life Saving Medicines" Drive Death & Sickness Rates in the USA

How many die from medical mistakes in U.S. hospitals?

  
Now comes a study in the current issue of the Journal of Patient Safety that says the numbers may be much higher — between 210,000 and 440,000 patients each year who go to the hospital for care suffer some type of preventable harm that contributes to their death, the study says.
That would make medical errors the third-leading cause of death in America, behind heart disease, which is the first, and cancer, which is second.
The new estimates were developed by John T. James, a toxicologist at NASA’s space center in Houston who runs an advocacy organization called Patient Safety America. James has also written a book about the death of his 19-year-old son after what James maintains was negligent hospital care.

Drug Overdose Sending More Americans to the ED

Drug overdoses send more than 1 million Americans to the emergency department (ED) each year, and the number is rising, according to a new data brief from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS).
A substantial portion of drug-poisoning visits involve analgesics, antipyretics, and antirheumatics, as well as sedatives, hypnotics, tranquilizers, and other psychotropic agents.
"Poisoning is the leading cause of injury-related mortality in the United States, with more than 40,000 deaths annually. Drugs account for 90% of poisoning deaths, and the number of deaths from drug poisoning has increased substantially in recent years," Michael Albert, MD, MPH, and colleagues from the NCHS note in their article.

Move to Make Vaccines Mandatory in the USA

Move to Make Vaccines Mandatory in the USA

The pharma backed lobby is trying very hard to make vaccines mandatory in the USA. This raises many uncomfortable questions. Why are the scientists silent? Why are a majority of the doctors simply witnessing the move? Why are the politicians unwilling to take sides on the issue? Here are some thoughtful links to browse through and recognize the enormity of the crime;

The Benefits of Natural Childbirth


The Benefits of Natural Childbirth

By Lilian Presti on June 30, 2008
the-benefits-of-natural-childbirth-naturally savvy-lilian prestiNatural childbirth, also known as un-medicated birth, has many hidden benefits that more women of childbearing age should be aware of. In our society, giving pain medication for labor is so normal that most doctors assume a laboring woman will want it, and most mothers-to-be expect it. In fact, depending upon the hospital and region, pain medication rates are as high as 90 percent, with the vast majority of women choosing an epidural.

Generally, if there is a way around it, most women try and avoid the pain. Why be a martyr and suffer needlessly they ask? And that is exactly how I used to think right up until I got pregnant with my son. I always assumed I would just get an epidural. Like other women, I was terrified of the pain and I never even considered delivering naturally until a friend, who had given birth naturally, began listing its virtues.

Despite being in the natural health field, I had not really heard much discussion regarding the benefits of avoiding medication during labor. In retrospect, I should have made the connection since an epidural is a drug, and most drugs have side effects. However, the fear of labor pain was simply too strong to allow me to entertain any other thoughts. Yet, when I started to do some research on my own, which included reading books on midwifery and talking to women who had chosen natural childbirth, I started to realize there was another side to the story.

Due to the medical institutionalization of birth in North America, most women forget birthing is a natural experience that, in most cases, does not need medical intervention. Women have been delivering babies naturally for millennia. It is what our bodies were designed to do. Of course the reality that pain is involved in the process cannot be ignored. For this reason, the vast majority of women choose pain medication.

Yet what would women choose if they were to become more educated about the potential consequences of this choice, and the benefits inherent in natural delivery? I believe the more aware women are about the facts involved with using these medications, the more they will choose what is best for their own bodies and the health of their babies.

Let’s look at the main reasons many women choose to have a natural childbirth.

Labor is Often Shorter

Epidurals and other pain relieving medications often lead to a slower delivery. Pain medications often interfere with the body’s natural way of laboring and can slow down contractions. This increases total laboring periods. In addition, women often do not feel their contractions and do not know when to push. By not pushing at key times, or with adequate strength, they are not able to facilitate the laboring process. They miss important opportunities to work with the rhythms of their bodies.

Epidurals Often Increase Use of Medical Interventions

Because epidurals disconnect women from the natural pushing action and prolong labor, doctors are prone to intervene in the slowed birthing process and may give a pitocin drip (a uterine stimulant) or use a vacuum or forceps to move the fetus through the birth canal. In addition, fetal monitoring may be necessary to study the fetus’s heart rate. This usually requires an instrument to be attached to the baby’s scalp. If there are issues related to the heart beat or other complications, a Cesarean-section may be done.
Although epidural use doesn’t always cause these complications, it does increase the likelihood that interventions will be used.
Breastfeeding is Facilitated
Research shows babies born through natural childbirth are more alert and show more interest in breastfeeding once delivered. Many women don’t realize the pain medication they receive is also passed on to their baby. Because of this, many babies are born slightly “drugged” from the pain medication. This can interfere with their innate suckling behavior that normally expresses itself shortly after birth. It is not unusual for babies, exposed to an epidural, to have difficulty with latching on and an uncoordinated suck/swallow response for hours, or even days.
When videotaped studies of newborn babies have been done, there has been a marked difference between those born to mothers who received pain medication and those who didn’t. The fact that neither mom, nor baby, is medicated means natural instincts can emerge and the bonding that normally manifests between a mother and her baby can take place.

Natural Childbirth is Often Healthier for Mom and Baby

Because an epidural slows down labor, a woman is much more likely to be given a pitocin drip (uterine stimulant) to speed up contractions. The resulting contractions begin to come on so strong and fast that a woman has very little time to recover between them, leaving less oxygen to reach the fetus. This could damage the fetus’s brain cells and possibly lead to neurological problems.
Epidurals in birthing women also increase the chance of fever which increases the likelihood antibiotics will be prescribed.
Faster Recovery Time

Women who planned natural childbirths often feel great for a short while after delivering their babies. Because no numbing drugs were used, and no tubes or needles were stuck into their body parts, naturally birthing moms can get up shortly after labor if they desire, and walk around or take a shower.
The euphoric feeling in which many naturally birthing moms experience is caused by the release of endorphins in the body during labor. Endorphins are calming and pain-relieving hormones the body naturally produces when dealing with pain. Tests have shown a woman’s body will not release nearly as many endorphins if a pain medication is utilized.

Greater Connection to the Experience

When drugs are not used during labor, women are very alert and fully conscious of the experience. They are connected to their bodies in a profound way, and to the experience of giving birth. Pain medications often dull a woman’s senses leading to a physical detachment from the birthing process. Many women report dissatisfaction with their birthing experience when they are not fully alert for their first out-of-womb contact with their baby.

Natural Childbirth is Empowering


Frequently, women who have natural childbirths are extremely empowered and feel much more confident. Being able to birth naturally, and successfully make it through the extreme demands of labor, often makes a woman feel stronger and less fearful about handling other challenges in life. Women often use words like “invincible” and “powerful” to describe how they feel after their natural labors.

In recent years we have begun to see a return to the practice of birthing naturally. Many women who embrace natural health habits in their daily lives feel that natural childbirth is simply an extension of this lifestyle. With the increased accessibility of midwives and doulas, women are now able to receive the support they need to move through the birth process naturally. More women need to hear that natural childbirth is doable and can be a wonderful experience. Women need to regain trust in their body’s ability to birth and understand the pain they experience is never in vain.

Dr Devi Shetty's Formula for "Health Care" Will Only Perpetuate Disease.

Dear Friends,

One of the many myths that occupy our intellectuals is that increasing the scope of "health care" will ensure health. Dr Devi Shetty plays on that sentiment when he calls for health care reforms in today's Times of India (Reform Medical Education, Transform Healthcare, March 28,2015). True to his industry leanings Dr Shetty calls for more hospitals, increased surgical interventions, more specialists, and - true to the present trend of trying to corrupt AYUSH doctors and adding them to the sales force of the industry - Dr Shetty wants AYUSH doctors to prescribe allopathic medicine. All intellectuals should wonder why Dr Shetty does not talk about health anywhere as he crunches statistics about burgeoning disease rates to call for strengthening the same strategy that has caused the mess in the first place. Dr Shetty urgently needs a course in holistic healing which will hugely impact his financial status but will save India's population from an impending genocide.

The Problem With Institution Delivery
Dr Devi Shetty avers that increased caesarian rates will bring down MMR and IMR rates. Dr Shetty is predictably out of date and prefers to ignore the scary hospital scenario where drug resistance, awful sanitary conditions, harmful atmosphere polluted by drugs and gadgets used, post surgical complications, drug errors, ignorance of side effects of the drugs given to the mother to induce birth, and plain and simple corruption rule the roost. He is ignorant of the immense benefits of natural child birth which colonizes the child with the mothers beneficial bacteria besides stimulating the entire system of the child in the process. The child gets instant access to the vital colostrum in the mothers milk after natural delivery, a process that is hugely delayed after caesarians. The world is today awake to the fact that caesarians are encouraged for reasons other than concern for the mother and child. It also provides the opportunity to assault the child with three very controversial vaccines on the day of birth. Health is never the objective of "health care". Growth is fueled by disease, not health.
 
 The Problem With Specialization
Health is a holistic subject and it is foolish to search for it within the body. To add insult to the injury is the practice of grooming specialists. As it is doctors know very little about medicines, much less about disease, and absolutely nothing about the patients they "treat". Specialization is knowing more and more about less and less. While it may work in other sectors - to be frank they are mocked at there too - this concept is extremely hazardous for health. The WHO defines, "Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." However this is the PR feel good exercise the WHO indulges in to fool people into believing in its role as a health provider. This concept of health can only be achieved through a holistic approach - as emphasized in the philosophy behind ayurveda, homeopathy, naturopathy and other holistic methods. It also requires huge investment in public health initiatives like poverty alleviation, employment, nutrition, clean water, sanitation, hygiene and housing.

Increasing drug, vaccine and diagnostic delivery - that the WHO indulges in - will only make populations more sick at their own expense; besides drawing scarce money from genuine public health initiatives. It is a classic case of stabbing a person after convincing him to invest in the knife and then signing the suicide note absolving the criminal. This is exactly what our corporate hospital based "health" model is doing. Our intellectuals however remain silent as they feel that speaking the truth would hurt their modernistic image and they may fall foul with authorities. Thus it remains for the public to realize this model for what it is worth and take care of their own health. Only this approach will starve the industry and provide the necessary pinch.

Mainstream Medicine: How to stem the rot.


Mainstream Medicine: How to stem the rot.

- Jagannath Chatterjee

The type of effort that will be required to make modern medicine a healing force will not be easily forthcoming. The rot began with I G Farben - the chemical cartel of Bayer, Hoechst and BASF - which financed Hitler's ascent to power and provided his eugenics program full support in the Auschwitz camps where the most inhuman medical experiments were carried out by expert doctors. Even as it backed Hitler this cartel forged relationships with oil and banking cartels of the West to expand its empire and profits. The PR head of Farben later became the prime adviser to Rockefeller. 


When Hitler fell, I G Farben exploited its links to extricate its members from the gallows. The cartels of the West coupled with CIA and possibly MI-6 managed to salvage the situation and surreptitiously rescued the doctors - who under forged identities - joined reputed institutions. Thus the Nazi era never ended but just changed its colors. 

The Rockefeller Foundation captured medicine and allowed only the chemical pharmaceuticals to thrive and grow. It took over the prime medical institutes, and by eliminating dissenters, placed its own agents at the helm. By opening the Rockefeller Institute of Medical Research the entire medical education was corrupted and revamped to become the marketing wing of the chemical cartel. 

Prior to this there was not much difference between western medicine and its counterparts in other nations. The rise of the British Empire allowed the western doctors to interact with and learn from other systems. It expanded its use of herbs and consolidated its knowledge about body humors. 

The first attack upon this growth was by Edward Jenner who reintroduced the crudity into the system with his cowpox vaccine in a futile attempt to prevent smallpox, in 1796. Louis Pasteur struck the death knell with his germ theory. Both were vehemently opposed by their thinking colleagues who preferred health over the assault on the human body. 

Antoine Bechamp, MD challenged the germ theory and asserted that the health of the body was of paramount importance. Malicious microbes and germs, he said, became active only AFTER the deterioration of health. While modern medical records extol the virtues of Jenner and Pasteur it fails to mention that both of them could realize the futility of their efforts and conceded to the reality; that health was of prime importance, germs were but secondary. Their failures however suited the chemical cartel fine. 

I G Farben - to escape persecution - dissolved itself to its original components Bayer, BASF and Hoechst, the latter two went ahead to become Abbott and Sanofi-Aventis. A new cartel was formed nurtured by Rockefeller and furthered by Bill Gates. 

Reformers have to acknowledge this history and start by concentrating on healing rather than the present band-aid practice. Medical education should be restored with all industry findings thrown to the dustbin. The new system should be headed by the new healers and not industry pimps. Health of populations and not disease definitions should become the priority. Results and not drug or vaccine targets should be aimed at. If health and happiness is restored the system can consider itself healed.

First published in Medico Friend Circle Bulletin: Issue 363-364, January-February 2015
I am here to try and write about my experience with the fond hope that it will help parents, doctors and caregivers understand what their loved ones, patients or wards are going through. It will not be a pretty picture. What people with health issues go through has never been fully described in any medical textbook, cannot be mapped through clinical tests, is not subject to rational thinking, and does not limit itself to the label flung at the patient in the form of a diagnosis.
Health depends upon how the authorities or experts understand it. If the understanding is correct it culminates in health and happiness. If the understanding is partial or improper suffering spreads like the plague. If the understanding is shaped by forces that have no intention of ensuring health, suffering becomes the norm. If the intention is to profit, suffering is eulogized and people feel proud to be classified on the basis and extent of their suffering. At such times people should do well to fend for themselves and take health into their own hands, keeping away from the 'experts'.
Can we separate health issues on the basis of which part of the body is affected? If a patient has cirrhosis of the liver can we say that only the liver is sick and the rest of the body and mind continues to be in an optimal state? To understand this one needs to look at the patient as a whole and develop interest in what s/he narrates in the consulting room. “Oh I feel so depressed doctor. I am so anxious about what the future holds for me. Can you cure me?” Not one word about the liver. The patient is more interested in the ‘me’.
That reminds me about what a psychiatrist told me when I had gone to him un-chaperoned and narrated to him my problems. “Who is it that is telling me that ‘I have lost my mental balance’? Is it the mind itself or is it something behind it?” He went along to tell me that this was often a discussion in psychiatric circles.
I used to be normal. I was quiet and observant as a child. I had a sense of humour and friends would be wary of my pranks. I could also withdraw from the world as I dipped into books I loved to read. Even as I was growing up I noticed qualities in persons that I did not approve of. I hated selfishness, greed, meanness, cruelty, disrespect for elders, and the lack of fellow feeling towards living beings. Negativity repelled me and I remember being protective towards people subject to it. Physically I used to suffer from bronchial asthma which confined me to the local library in winter months. I had a tendency to catch a cold.
My parents tell me I was extremely healthy at birth. My favourite sport was rolling off the bed and playing on the floor. Even putting pillows all around me did not help and no one had ever heard me cry from the fall. I continued to be healthy till I suffered a severe bout of green diarrhoea. My health deteriorated after that. If you read the DPT vaccine package insert green diarrhoea stands out as a side effect. So does bronchial asthma.
As my father was a central government employee medical care was not a problem. I was medicated with whatever the doctor suggested. I have also been vaccinated against smallpox, polio, typhoid, cholera and tuberculosis, either in hospitals or during vaccination drives in my school. My health did not improve despite the costly tonics I consumed regularly. The doctors said my immune system was weak and thai I had probably developed asthma because I was afraid of school. What a load of crap, I remember thinking and gave Dr Ghosh a piece of my mind. He was taken aback and never raised the subject again. Later I used to guide the doctors of the Air Force Hospital in the base my father was posted in on exactly what I was going through and they developed respect for me. They used to encourage me to take up medicine.
My vaccine injury just as I was readying myself for a career in medicine plunged me into a crisis from which I can never recover completely. I was affected at all levels possible. Normally when you fall sick you strengthen your mind and resolve to get well. In my case the mind itself had gone haywire.
I have written ‘affected at all levels’. How do I describe it? I was sick from the night I was given the shot which I later learnt was the Measles Mumps Rubella (MMR) vaccine. I tossed and turned in bed, had disturbed dreams and woke up into a new world. Everything seemed strange around me. The sunlight looked surreal, the sounds seemed to come through a medium that twisted them, time seemed to have lost meaning, and the only thing that was real was the thought that something was terribly wrong with me. My skin became overtly sensitive and I avoided all touch. I developed headaches so severe I got relief only from banging my head on the wall. My eyes ached as I looked at the light and I developed the habit of looking sideways at things. My eyesight deteriorated rapidly. I faced body coordination problems and felt tremors all over causing me to contort my body for relief. My intestines acted strange as if a constant churning was going on in it. I developed a habit of walking on my toes as my soles had become extremely sensitive and painful.
This was just the beginning. I started experiencing memory problems. Nervousness and panic attacks followed. Public speaking was my forte but I stopped as I broke into a cold sweat whenever I attempted it. I used to stop mid way if I pushed myself as I would lose thread of what I was saying. I felt extremely tired all the time as if I had just run a marathon. One night I awoke with a start to find that my legs had gone cold. What was creepy was that the coldness started progressing upwards. When it reached my heart I sprang up from the bed and screamed. My worried parents did not know what to do. I was taken to a doctor who told them it was just an allergy and gave me an antihistamine. I slept and when I woke up in the morning I was again cold all over and thinking about suicide. This became a regular phenomenon.
I developed nightly diarrhoea. It was profuse and exhausting. I started dreading the nights even more than the days. I had turned a recluse and my friends were full of questions for which I had no answers. I lost weight rapidly and soon I was a skeleton. I could sense a throbbing sensation in my chest as if someone was squeezing a gland there and it was getting smaller by the day. Doctors said that was the region of the thymus gland but not to worry because it was important only for children. Later I learnt that the thymus was a very important part of the immune system and that it shrunk only in populations that had embraced the modern civilization. In tribal and others who stayed away it retained its size and function even in old age.
I developed a pain in the region of the spleen that made me bend double and roll on the ground screaming. I had a peculiar cold accompanied with violent sneezing. I used to sit beside a pan with my hands on the head to ease the pain as a steady stream flowed from my nose. The doctors tried to help but held back whenever I uttered that dirty word, ‘vaccine’. They said it had nothing to do with any vaccine I was given. When I persisted I was told that I was suffering from obsessive compulsive disorder. They said if I persisted with the ‘vaccination theory’ I would go to a mental institution. I knew that I was being threatened.
My descent into hell continued. My memory problems and panic attacks became worse by the day. I developed a fear of traveling as I would have memory lapses. My mother always slipped a note containing my name, address and contact numbers into my pocket if I had to travel. When I traveled by train the sound of the train’s whistle seemed to enter my innards and I used to panic with a great menacing emptiness descending into me. When I used to get down at my destination I often could not even remember my name let alone know why I was there in the first place. I used to sit down somewhere with my luggage and instinctively rummage through my pockets for the note. Often before I could get to that the person assigned to receive me would have arrived. Nearer home I would wander and then suddenly find myself in a place without any idea about how I got there.
What troubled me the most was the way my thoughts betrayed the strong value system that has been the back bone of my life. I hated negativity and here I was full of it. I would shake my head vigorously to throw away the thoughts that assaulted me. I would visit temples during my wandering phases and lie prostrate before the idol begging to be rid of them. Had I not read in homeopathic literature that toxins and heavy metals corrode the mind as well I would have either given in to them or built a fire and cremated myself to escape the trauma and humiliation.
I lived from day to day. My body seemed hell bent on destroying itself. A severe burning sensation all over the body made my life miserable. I was attracted by fire and had the impulse of jumping into it. When I rode my scooter I used to look at the vehicles rushing towards me and fight off the impulse to crash into them. The all pervading pain that persisted relentlessly made me scream and throw furniture around. My parents told me I groaned and sobbed all through the night. I had nightmares about being pushed into a coffin like room from which there was no escape. Every night I would go to bed hoping that the morning would not come.
What kept a part of me sane even as I was on a roller coaster trip to the land of extreme anguish and pain? It was my memory of being in control prior to the shot – an escape route denied to most infants and children vaccine injured before they come to grips with the world. Despite my memory problems, anxiety and panic attacks, and bipolar disorder I could still manage to read and write and I clutched to this small window of opportunity that helped me occasionally grasp a lung full of air. I pulled these abilities together to read up on homeopathy to help myself and also launched a full scale campaign to warn others of the dangers aided by immunologists and doctors who supplied me with their research papers, findings and experience.
I was a lunatic yes, but could I be compared to the system that pushed me into the state? Even as I was going through such a terrible experience my whole effort was directed towards warning others about the procedure that was causing harm. My heart ached for the children who were experiencing what I, as an adult, was unable to tolerate. Can we say the same thing for those who push such procedures for the sake of profit? What kind of a mentality, what kind of a heart, and what kind of an upbringing do these people have? Are they fit to be members of any civilized society? Do they deserve an iota of the respect they demand? Surrounded by sycophants these maggots feed upon suffering. They are the ones who are insane, not I.
We talk of the increasing incidence of mental illnesses and the need for infrastructure, trained manpower and policies to attend to those who are affected or who will be affected in future. My insane advice would be to consider the many factors lying in plain sight that are causing the spurt in cases and try to stem them so that people are spared the ‘benefits of care and treatment’. That is the best pebble I can offer from the lonely beach that I am stranded in.
