How Big Pharma and CDC Spin Statistics to Sell Ineffective Vaccines and Drugs

fosamax_infographic-300x180
It has been over a decade since I came to the realization that the entire profession of medicine had been bamboozled by the propaganda coming from the Big Pharma drug and vaccine maker, Merck & Company, that its so-called “fracture-preventative” drug Fosamax had defrauded us doctors and our patients by falsely claiming a “50% efficacy rate” in the prevention of bone fractures in osteopenic/osteoporotic women. By doing a little math, I understood that the honest truth of the matter was that patients who took the drug for four years had a miniscule 1-2% absolute risk reduction (AAR) in the incidence of fractures, which is a much more realistic figure that Merck, being a sociopathic entity that is inclined to tell half-truths or outright lies, chose not to use in its advertisements. It is a fact that being truthful in the drug or vaccine industry is an impediment to selling product, because they would be admitting they were selling a lousy, fraudulent, relatively ineffective or dangerous drug or vaccine. In other words, Big Pharma/BigVaccine is still successfully bamboozling us doctors and patients (as well as Big Media, the CDC, the FDA, the AMA, the AAP, the APA, the AAFP, the NIH, the NIMH, Wall Street and our politicians) with the old deceptive tactic of using relative risk reduction statistics about vaccine efficacy rather than honestly telling us the more truthful absolute risk reduction figures whenever they are rolling out their newest – and increasingly unaffordable – vaccines. Therefore, I devote the remainder of this column to reporting some excerpts from the internet and end with some examples of published studies from courageous researchers who have gone up against the drug industry and reported the important statistics that we should all demand to know when a vaccine (or drug) is being sold to us.

U.S. Taxpayer Funds Used To Develop and Market Merck’s Gardasil Vaccine

It is no secret that huge conflicts of interest exist between vaccine promoters and vaccine makers. Pediatrician and vaccine developer Paul Offit, for example, who is one of the nation’s leading promoters of mandatory use of government recommended vaccines, holds a $1.5 million research chair at Children’s Hospital in Philadelphia, funded in part by Merck.
Julie Gerberding left her post as Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), where she oversaw the creation of national vaccine policies, to head Merck vaccines. Former Texas governor Rick Perry recommended state-wide inoculation of all 11- and 12-year-old girls with Merck’s Gardasil vaccine after his chief of staff left to work at Merck. Just as disturbing are the millions of dollars that officials at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) dole out to academic institutions and vaccine manufacturers to improve vaccine technology, find new, lucrative markets and boost vaccine marketability—functions that guarantee the profitability of corporations, but do not always ensure the well being of taxpayers, the public and patients. Today, taxpayer-supported research to develop new drugs and vaccines is voraciously patented by universities and drug companies for outsized Wall Street profits when the research rightfully belongs to taxpayers. Development of the human papillomavirus (HPV) Gardasil and Cervarix vaccines is a case in point. The initial research was funded by the NIH, National Cancer Institute, University of Rochester, Georgetown University and the University of Queensland, which licensed them to Merck and GlaxoSmithKline. In 2015, Merck made $1.9 billion on its Gardasil franchise.

Two huge vaccine scandals the press is ignoring

https://www.blacklistednews.com/article/65838/rappoport-two-huge-vaccine-scandals-the-press.html

Some lies are so big, many people can’t accept the fact that they’re lies. Their minds are boggled. “No,” they say, “that couldn’t be.” But yes, that could be, and is.

Two giant vaccine scandals are in progress at the moment.

The mainstream press is mentioning them, here and there, but without any intent to raise alarms, dig in, investigate, and get down to the core of the problem.

So I’ll get to the core.

The first scandal revolves around the flu vaccine for the current year. The CDC and other “experts” have admitted the vaccine has a very low effectiveness rate.

Why is it a dud?

Because the vaccine is produced using chicken eggs, and in that medium, the flu virus—which is intentionally placed in the eggs—mutates. Therefore, it isn’t the same virus which is causing flu this year. Therefore, no protection against the flu.

FiercePharma reports: “Based on data from Australia, which already had its flu season, scientists warn that this season’s flu shot might be only 10% effective. And the reason for such a low level of protection might lie in the method by which the majority of flu vaccines are made: in eggs.”

Ten percent effectiveness. Now that’s ridiculous. And it’s assuming you accept the whole model of how vaccines work—that they actually do protect (safely) against disease, rather than, at best, repressing the visible symptoms of the disease.

Amidst their spotty coverage of this scandal, here is what the press is failing to mention: the problem with the flu vaccine isn’t just a 2017-2018 flaw.

It would be the same problem ever since chicken eggs have been used to manufacture the vaccine.

Are you ready?

Healthline.com: “The majority of flu vaccines are grown in chicken eggs, a method of vaccine development that’s been used for 70 years.”

Hello? Anyone home?

Seventy years. The same problem.

The same “low effectiveness” problem.

That’s a page-one story with a giant headline. That’s the lead item on the nightly news. That’s a pounding investigative series about the lunatic promotion of a massively ineffective—but universally promoted—vaccine going back decades and decades.

But it isn’t a giant headline. It isn’t an investigation. It’s a here-today-gone-tomorrow piece. That’s all.

The second scandal keeps unfolding in the Philippines, where drug giant Sanofi’s Dengvaxia, given to prevent Dengue Fever, is facing enormous pushback from government officials, who stopped the national vaccination campaign, after thousands of children already received the shot.

The issue? Safety.

FiercePharma: “The Philippines stopped vaccinations shortly after the company warned that Dengvaxia can cause more serious infections in those who previously hadn’t had exposure to the virus. The country also kicked off a probe and plans legal action, according to health secretary Francisco Duque.”

Did you get that? The company (Sanofi) itself warned that vaccine might not be safe.

FiercePharma: “…the [Philippine] Department of Health didn’t heed warnings from an advisory group of doctors and pharmacologists, who concluded early last year that the vaccine’s safety and efficacy were unproven.”

My, my.

But let’s dig even deeper. Sanofi saying is saying the vaccine might be dangerous for those who haven’t been exposed to the Dengue virus before getting the shot. What on Earth does that mean?

It means a child who had naturally come in contact with the virus would have developed his own antibodies to it. And later, those antibodies would protect him against the Dengue virus IN THE VACCINE. Otherwise, the virus in the vaccine could give him a case of Dengue or cause some other form of damage.

This is saying, “If a child is ALREADY immune to Dengue Fever, because his immune system has successfully dealt with the virus, then the vaccine won’t damage him.”

And THAT is saying, “If the child has naturally developed an immunity to Dengue, then the vaccine, WHICH HE DOESN’T NEED, won’t harm him.”

Of course, the press isn’t getting the picture. If any reporters are seeing the light, they’re keeping their mouths shut. The scandal is too big and too crazy.

Between the lines, a vaccine company is admitting their vaccine is only safe for children who don’t need it.

A tree just fell in the forest. Who heard it?

 

Neonatal Hepatitis B Vaccine, The Autism Influencer From Day One Of Life?

Is the U.S.-mandated Hepatitis B vaccine administered to newborn infants within 24 hours of birth the initial ‘impact’ vaccine for ‘programming’ a child’s unfortunate decline into the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)?

The answer to that question is a resounding “YES” according to a 2016 peer review study titled, Neonatal hepatitis B vaccination impaired the behavior and neurogenesis of mice transiently in early adulthood published in the Elsevier peer review journal Psychoneuroendochrinology.

The extensive research on mice brains published above indicates what the CDC/FDA should have found and warned against as part of the licensing procedures for the Hepatitis B vaccine introduced as a recommended infant/childhood vaccine way back in 1991, when “the first dose was recommended to be administered at birth before hospital discharge or at age 1–2 months.” [3]

That apparent default by the ever-increasing-malfeasance being exposed on the part of the CDC/FDA’s either ineptness or reliance upon what’s known as “consensus science,” is proof of the absolute need for the dismantling of a federal U.S. health agency—listed on the U.S. Stock Exchange (NASDAQ) [4]by Congress, who has oversight.

How NIH Uses U.S. Tax Dollars to Secure Profits for Vaccine Developers and Manufacturers

http://www.thevaccinereaction.org/2018/05/how-nih-uses-u-s-tax-dollars-to-secure-profits-for-vaccine-developers-and-manufacturers/

Once upon a time, before passage of the Bayh-Dole Act by Congress in 1980 and the push for lucrative “technology transfer” business arrangements between federal agencies and for-profit corporations, inventions developed with federal funding were owned by the U.S. Government and not industry. Today, taxpayer-supported research to develop new drugs and vaccines is voraciously patented by universities and drug companies for outsized Wall Street profits when the research rightfully belongs to taxpayers.5

Development of the human papillomavirus (HPV) Gardasil and Cervarix vaccines is a case in point. The initial research was funded by the NIH, National Cancer Institute, University of Rochester, Georgetown University and the University of Queensland, which licensed them to Merck and GlaxoSmithKline.6 7 In 2015, Merck made $1.9 billion on its Gardasil franchise.8

Soon, aggressive domestic and overseas marketing of the expensive HPV vaccines began, even as the vaccines themselves got poor marks for both safety and effectiveness. In 2006, consumer advocacy groups had protested the FDA’s fast tracking of Gardasil vaccine to licensure, citing inadequate safety data.9 Reports of sudden collapse/fainting (syncope) and serious neurological and immune system problems after Gardasil vaccinations emerged immediately after the vaccine was licensed.10

CDC Study: 150% Increase in Autism in U.S. Kids Since 2000. Researchers Suspect Environmental Risks and Triggers. 2012 Research Determined WiFi Radiation Disrupts Blood Brain Barrier, May Cause Leaking.

By B.N. Frank

According to an April 26, 2018 Bloomberg article,

Nationally, the prevalence (of autism) has increased 150 percent since 2000, according to the study, which called autism “an urgent public-health concern.”

and

Researchers aren’t sure what causes autism, although they suspect environmental risks or triggers.

Bloomberg must have interviewed the wrong researchers.  There is actually government, independent, industry, and military research that has already proven that cell phone and wireless WiFi radiation as well other sources of Electrical Pollution (Electrosmog) are “environmental risks and triggers” for many health issues – behavioral, emotional, mental and physical.

 

Cervical Cancer Increases Since HPV Vaccines, Per Swedish Study

By Catherine J. Frompovich

https://www.activistpost.com/2018/05/cervical-cancer-increases-since-hpv-vaccines-per-swedish-study.html

It seems there are more “correlation and causation” effects from vaccines, especially with the much-touted ‘cervical cancer prevention’ vaccines known as Gardasil®, Gardasil 9® and Cervarix® – the Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines manufactured by Merck & Company and GlaxoSmithKline, respectively!

These vaccines are loaded with aluminum adjuvants.

Source: CDC

Gardasil®
Each 0.5-mL dose of the vaccine contains approximately 225 mcg of aluminum (as Amorphous
Aluminum Hydroxyphosphate Sulfate adjuvant), 9.56 mg of sodium chloride, 0.78 mg of L-histidine,
50 mcg of polysorbate 80, 35 mcg of sodium borate, <7 mcg yeast protein/dose, and water for injection.
The product does not contain a preservative or antibiotics.

Source: Merck (PDF, Pg. 12)

Gardasil 9®
Each 0.5-mL dose of the vaccine also contains approximately 500 mcg of aluminum (provided as
AAHS), 9.56 mg of sodium chloride, 0.78 mg of L-histidine, 50 mcg of polysorbate 80, 35 mcg of sodium
borate, <7 mcg yeast protein, and water for injection. The product does not contain a preservative or
antibiotics.

Cervarix® (Recombinant, AS04 adjuvanted)
This AS04 adjuvant system comprises aluminium hydroxide (Al(OH)3) and 3-O-desacyl-4’-
monophosphoryl lipid A (MPL). (Pg. 1)

Note that under the Description, no amount in mcg or otherwise is listed for the aluminum content!

Genotoxicity The genotoxic potential of CERVARIX has not been investigated. (Pg. 15)

Carcinogenicity The carcinogenic potential of CERVARIX has not been investigated. (Pg. 16)

Even though the GlaxoSmithKline package insert for Cervarix® seemingly skirts stating the amount of aluminum in the GSK HPV vaccine, I was able to find the content of aluminum hydroxide on the European Union health documents website below and it is 0.5 milligrams!

The Indian Journal of Medical Ethics Online first published the Comment article “Increased incidence of cervical cancer in Sweden: Possible link with HPV vaccination” April 30, 2018 DOI:10.20529/IJME.2018.037.

According to the Abstract for the article by Lars Andersson,

The Centre for Cervical Cancer Prevention in Sweden has noted in its annual report a substantial increase in the incidence of invasive cervical cancer, especially during the two years 2014 and 2015.  [….]

The increase in the incidence of cervical cancer was shown to be most prominent among women 20–49 years of age while no apparent increase was observed among women above 50.

I [Andersson] discuss the possibility that HPV vaccination could play a role in the increase in the incidence of cervical cancer by causing instead of preventing cervical cancer disease in women previously exposed to HPV. A time relationship exists between the start of vaccination and the increase in the incidence of cervical cancer. The HPV vaccines were approved in 2006 and 2007, respectively and most young girls started to be vaccinated during 2012–2013.

Lars Andersson is associated with the prestigious Karolinska Institute [1].

In the Introduction section of the Andersson article, he cites and translates “The Centre for Cervical Cancer Prevention (NKCx) in Sweden has noted in its annual report of 2017(1), which includes data up to 2016,” as follows:

The age-standardised incidence of invasive cervical cancer in Sweden has increased substantially in the last two years (20%) and there is a statistically significant increase for the entire period 2005–2015. The incidence in Sweden for 2014–2015 is 11.5 per 100,000 women. The increase in the last two years can be seen in all counties except Södermanland, Skåne, Jämtland and Västerbotten. Substantial and statistically significant increases are seen for Östergötland, Jönköping, Blekinge, Halland, Värmland, Örebro and Dalarna, with an average yearly increase of 7%–8%. Tendencies of substantial increases are also seen for Uppsala, Gotland, Västmanland and Västerbotten with yearly average increases of 4% or more.

Autism prevalence increases: 1 in 59 US children

https://www.cnn.com/2018/04/26/health/autism-prevalence-cdc/index.html

One in 59 US children has autism, according to a new report from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The new estimate represents a 15% increase from two years prior and a 150% increase since 2000. Autism spectrum disorder, a developmental disability, is characterized by problems with communication and social interaction with accompanying repetitive behavior patterns. The CDC launched the Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring Network in 2000 to collect data that would provide estimates of the prevalence of autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disabilities. The agency … developed a methodology for estimating autism prevalence using information from children’s health and education records. The new estimated rate of autism in the United States is based on data collected from 11 communities in Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Maryland, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, Tennessee and Wisconsin. About 8% of all 8-year old children living in the US [live in these communities]. Overall, fewer than half of the children identified with autism had received their first diagnosis by the time they were 4 years old, the new CDC report finds. Also, the definition of autism has changed through the decades. In the past, more than half of children identified with autism also had intellectual disability, and now it’s about a third.

Note: The above article carefully avoids mentioning the link between autism and environmental toxins such as mercury additives in vaccines. For more along these lines, see concise summaries of deeply revealing health news articles from reliable major media sources.

Federal Agencies and Public Health Experts Refuse to Declare Autism a National Health Crisis

us-children-autsim-2018

It is both astonishing and insulting that, nearly three decades in, federal agencies and public health experts persist in denying and refusing to tackle our nation’s staggering autism epidemic. With typical dismissiveness (and a straight face), one group of pediatric researchers recently had the temerity to put the word “epidemic” in quotes while endorsing the charade that the rising prevalence of autism is attributable to broader diagnostic criteria, increased awareness and “the inclusion of milder neurodevelopmental differences bordering on normality.”
The government’s own surveys—as well as parents, school systems and municipal budgets—tell an entirely different story, however. Autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) began skyrocketing in the late 1980s, concurrent with a massive expansion of the childhood vaccine schedule and a corresponding increase in children’s exposure to neurotoxic vaccine ingredients such as mercury and aluminum. Over the years, many of the CDC’s bulletins about ASD prevalence have placidly reported that “ASDs are more common than was believed previously.”
However, the continued dramatic rise in ASD prevalence and autism’s heavy burden on individuals, families, schools and wider society call for a far greater sense of urgency. Autism must be recognized as a national crisis. As of this writing (April 2018), the CDC is due to release its latest ADDM surveillance numbers. Will our federal health agencies continue to downplay the numbers’ significance, as they have done each time the data show a rise in ASD prevalence?
Or will they finally sound an alarm and make it a top priority to find out what is causing this epidemic in our children? No one—and not least the agencies that are supposed to be looking out for children’s best interests—can afford to be complacent any longer about this unjustifiably neglected public health emergency.
