It has been only a decade since I really started studying vaccine science in some depth. That was much too late for many of my trusting (and therefore very vulnerable) patients. I have finally come to see through the pervasive Big Pharma/ Big Vaccine/ Big Medicine propaganda that falsely and repeatedly asserted that all vaccines are safe, all vaccines are effective and that all vaccines are necessary for the public health.
After hundreds of hours of research and studying scholarly books and journal articles, I can now confidently state that each of those three claims about vaccine safety are false and definitely part of a clever propaganda campaign that has relied on disinformation campaigns assisted by the big money interests that have unrestricted access to the major media⏤70% of whose revenues comes from the pharmaceutical industry advertising.
In other words a “conspiracy has been perpetrated upon naïve parents who, without the intense disinformation campaign, would have trusted their instincts and maintained their logical vaccine hesitancy. The conspiracy was cunningly crafted between at least four very powerful, authoritative/ authoritarian groups, including
1) big pharmaceutical corporations that make and sell “unavoidably unsafe” and increasingly unaffordable – and therefore very profitable – vaccines;
2) co-opted (by Big Pharma money) government bureaucratic (non-clinical) regulators like the CDC, the FDA, the NIH;
3) physician trade organizations like the AAP, the AMA and the AAFP; and
4) pediatricians (and other physicians as well) whose livelihoods depend on well-baby and well-child check-ups and the vaccinations that always accompany those office calls/
This conspiracy to sell an inherently unsafe product (that industry can’t be sued over when it damages the recipient of the dangerous product) has been wildly successful.
Indoctrinated, Misinformed, Ignorant, Arrogant and Authoritarian Physicians
I have come to understand that my academic professors at the University of Minnesota Medical School that taught us naïve med students about the alleged safety and alleged efficacy of mass vaccination campaigns had also been mis-taught by their own professors who also probably were indoctrinated by their authoritarian professors about the historical myths about Jenner, cowpox, smallpox and also the myths about Pasteur, Salk and Sabin and their often failed – even disastrously-failed – experiments with vaccines.
I suspect also that by the mid-1960s my professors were increasingly coming under the corrupting influence of the pharmaceutical industry and Big Pharma’s Wall Street cronies that were recognizing the enormous profits that could be made by selling more and more dependency-inducing and increasingly expensive, patentable, synthetic drugs (and vaccines). In fairness to my now-deceased professors, there were far fewer drugs and only a minuscule number of vaccines available back then when I was in med school (1964 – 1968).
I last practiced family medicine in an under-served area of rural Minnesota two decades ago. Since then I have had more time and energy to understand how and why the academic physicians that wrote my text books came up with the assertions – without corroborating evidence – that vaccines were always safe and effective.
These mostly non-clinical, academic authors – just like today’s academics – probably had significant, undeclared conflicts of interest with the industries that provided the research money and the propaganda power that convinced us naïve students to become life-long prescribers of their toxic substances.
Of course, nothing was taught to us back then about 1) the multiple toxic ingredients that are in every vaccine dose; 2) the multiple risks; 3) the common presence of contaminants; or 4) the lack of proof of safety or efficacy when cocktails of combinations of vaccines are injected simultaneously into the tiny muscles of our infant and toddler patients.
But students, particularly medical students, aren’t known for questioning authority, especially if the authorities are esteemed, renowned, albeit often very arrogant/ignorant professors Most of us weren’t aware of the fact that many of our professors had never had any experience at being a self-employed, practicing community physician.
Our academic professors didn’t explain to us med students (and perhaps didn’t understand themselves) that the pro-vaccine and pro-drug “relative risk” statistics that came from the statisticians of the Big Pharma cartel intentionally – and fraudulently – always understated the risks and over-rated the effectiveness and safety of their products (especially the over-priced and often dependency-inducing drugs that had serious withdrawal effects that made stopping them both hard to do AND hazardous).
So, we naïve future teachers of our equally naïve and bamboozleable future patients (who also tended to be obedient to authoritative folks like us mis-informed physicians) were also easily brainwashed into totally trusting – often against their better judgement – the Big Pharma cartel’s propaganda.
And then, after we students finally finished our internship or residency programs, we were employed by various for-profit private medical practices and/or hospitals. It was then that we discovered the need to pay attention to the “bottom line” of the business of medicine.
Our clinic managers reminded us that that there was some extra money to be made by getting parents to bring their previously well babies in for their “well-baby exams” at which time cocktails of “well-baby shots” could be administered. It didn’t occur to us rookie physicians at the time that the medical profession made far less money than the vaccine makers and vaccine marketers did. We just went along guiltlessly and happily doing what we had been taught in school – and we rarely doubted the accuracy of what we had been taught.
But most seriously, we medical students were never taught much immunology or even how vaccines actually “worked”. I myself only started trying to understand what I had been mis-taught (and ultimately began to doubt) about the corporate vaccinology “pseudo-science”. Those falsehoods really took root after a close relative started having neurological issues after his four-month well baby shots. That relative eventually was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome – a mild form of autism).
It was only then that I finally started listening to and trusting the multitude of honest, anguished and justifiably angry parents whose vaccine-sickened or vaccine-killed children had been made acutely-ill, chronically-ill or deceased soon after their cocktails of baby shots had been injected.
I have been additionally outraged over the fact that many of the previously trusting parents (whose children and lives had been devastated by vaccine injuries) have actually been fired from the medical practices that had injured their children! Is there no shame?
The science of vaccine-induced neurotoxicity can be easily understood by laypeople, health journalists and physicians – if we/they ever took the time and spent the energy to learn the admittedly complicated science of immunology and what actually are the ingredients in the vaccines. Since laypeople have never been indoctrinated, it might actually be easier for these non-scientists to learn the principles and dangers of vaccinology than for us brain-washed physicians!
For example, it is easy for anybody to understand that, until the year 2000, mercury, in the form of thimerosal, was commonly used in many vaccines as a preservative that was supposed to prevent bacterial overgrowth in the multi-dose, rubber-stoppered vials.
Mercury is the 2nd most neurotoxic naturally-occuring substance on the planet – right behind the highly radioactive element plutonium – and there is no known safe dose! Mercury, according to sources inside Big Pharma, is still only used in multidose influenza vaccine vials, but actually small concentrations of thimerosal have still been found in other non-live virus vaccines as well.
In addition, nanoparticles of the known neurotoxic and autoimmunity-inducing metal aluminum are widely used in vaccines. Particulate aluminum compounds are known to cause hyper-immune responses when incubated with the intended viral particles in the vaccine solutions and then injected into muscle tissue. The number of antibodies produced in response to an aluminum-containing vaccine are orders of magnitude greater than can be achieved with a vaccine that has no aluminum in it. And, just like mercury, there is no known safe dose of aluminum when injected intramuscularly.
In addition, any of the live (albeit allegedly “attenuated”) measles and mumps viruses that are in Merck’s MMR II vaccines are known to be capable of causing low-grade viral encephalitis or non-infectious encephalopathies that are often later diagnosed as brain disorders such as learning disorders, behavioral disorders, speech delays, intellectual disorders, developmental delays, autism, Asperger’s, epilepsy, asthma, allergies, chronic headaches, narcolepsy, mental disorders, etc.
Vaccine-induced diseases are all, of course, “iatrogenic” disorders (a term defined as “caused by doctors, prescription drugs, doctor-ordered vaccinations or surgery”).
What Could Possibly go Wrong?
How many things could possibly go wrong when even a highly-skilled nurse tries to inject cocktails of a solution containing a multitude of synthetic chemicals into the tiny muscles of a neurologically-vulnerable infant whose blood-brain barrier is immature and leaky? Failing to hit the tiny muscles of an infant with a needle has to be quite common in average clinics and probably accounts for the significant variability of vaccine efficacy studies that have been found in even pharmaceutical industry-sponsored studies.
But the Big Pharma cartels, the Big Medicine professional trade associations, the Big Pharma lobbyists, the Big Pharma cartel-paid mainstream media voices and naïve health journalists (that get their information from dis-information agents in the CDC, the FDA, the NIH and other Big Pharma sources) easily out-spend, out-advertise and out-shout those of us who are trying to warn about the dangers of the toxic substances that are in all vaccines.
One of the major reasons why vaccines probably do more harm than good can be understood if one understands that true immunity can only occur if both of the two essential aspects of immunity occur together.
Vaccinations are only capable of inducing partial and temporary immunity to whatever injected viral or bacterial particle is in the inoculum. True herd immunity only occurs with actual natural infections of substantial portions of a community. Epidemics are always followed by the absence of epidemics. Because intramuscularly-injected vaccinations are incapable of creating life-long immunity or persistent immune responses, periodic booster shots are always urged for compliant children to even achieve a partial and short-term immunity.
In order for a person (or a pet) to obtain life-long immunity to an infectious disease, there must occur a natural exposure to – and at least a subclinical infection by – a wild-type virus or bacteria that has adequate exposure to the animal’s mucosa (nasal, pharyngeal, respiratory or gastrointestinal)!
Injectable vaccines that contain live viruses, attenuated live viruses, dead viruses or fragments of a virus can NEVER be expected to result in life-long immunity or herd immunity!
Below are some of the reasons for that reality, reasons that the vast majority of practicing physicians, inoculating nurses and policy-making hospital or clinic administrators seem incapable of understanding – or perhaps not interested in understanding.
Here is a summary of the two essential factors that must exist if a person is to develop true lifelong immunity to any infectious disease. They are
1) cellular immunity, which only occurs when the nasal, pharyngeal or respiratory (or bowel) mucosa is sufficiently exposed to an infectious virus or bacteria – (which, of course absolutely can’t happen with an intramuscularly injectable vaccine!) and
2) serological (aka “humoral”) immunity, which can result from a vaccination OR when the animal’s mucosal barrier is breached/infected by a live virus or bacteria.
Thus, intramuscular vaccinations can never actually affect what is probably the most important factor in immunology: cellular/mucosal immunity. Thus, all intramuscular vaccinations – which totally bypass the mucosa – can only (theoretically) boost serological/humoral immunity in some (but not all) individuals.
Any immunological effect that might be achieved from an injectable viral or bacterial particle will thus be of uncertain strength and duration. Hence the need for annual boosters for influenza and periodic boosters for most other vaccines to even keep up partial immunity. And, even in the case of booster shots, there will be no cellular immunity achieved because injected vaccines are incapable of inducing that type of immunity!
In the worst-case scenario, vaccine-induced autoimmunity disorders will occur with intramuscular vaccinations when aluminum is incubated with the antigens that are in the vaccine.
Why most physicians and patients have become so thoroughly convinced that vaccinations are effective is not just the massive propaganda from Big Pharma and Big Medicine that repeatedly supports that notion, but also the relative rarity of the viral or bacterial illnesses that the vaccines allegedly prevent. See the list farther below for some examples regarding that issue.
As just one example of the uselessness of vaccinating all pediatric patients with, for example, a mumps vaccine, is the fact that in the United States, only 3,000 cases of mumps were reported annually in 1983–1985, which equates to the exceedingly rare incidence of 1.5 cases per 100,000 population!
And yet the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and the AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) mandate several doses of the live mumps virus-containing MMR vaccine for every pre-school child in America. Which means that for every child partially protected from the rare benign parotid gland infection there will be tens of thousands of children that will be unnecessarily vaccinated, receiving no benefit, but each one will have to pay the substantial monetary costs and will be unnecessarily exposed to the neurotoxic ingredients of the vaccine and the substantial risk of developing a vaccine-induced autoimmune disorder or death.
A second example is the aluminum-adjuvanted Pneumovax shot and the fact that as few as 2 cases of invasive pneumococcal pneumonia occur annually in the US per 100,000 population. That means that 99.99% of the patients getting the Pneumovax shot will get no benefit but will be at risk of suffering the considerable adverse effects from the aluminum.
See some other examples further below.
What rational, clear-headed, intelligent, open-minded mother, if her baby’s pediatrician did his duty and fully informed the mother about the following facts, would accept those risks without considering some alternative?
- the infections that are theoretically being partially prevented are RARE;
- most of the infectious diseases are MILD; and
- there are many serious risks with injecting multiple vaccines into a baby’s muscles.
Here are some sobering statistics that should give pause (vaccine hesitancy) to any parent considering exposing themselves or their innocent babies to toxic substances for little or no benefit.
Commonly-mandated Childhood Vaccines and the Rarity of the Infections that they are Supposed to Prevent
MMR (Measles): The MMR vaccine contains live (although allegedly attenuated) viruses and therefore has never contained the potent toxin mercury or the neurotoxin aluminum. In the US, the incidence of measles is approximately 2 cases per million population.
Note that live virus inoculations can actually cause recently-vaccinated individuals to shed the vaccine virus for uncertain lengths of time. Therefore, the recently-vaccinated can be contagious to close contacts. Post-vaccination contagion has been observed following measles, mumps and live polio virus vaccinations to last for months in some cases. There are no tests to determine which recent vaccinees are shedding live vaccine viruses. Therefore, recently vaccinated persons should actually be considered to be far more likely to be contagious than the asymptomatic, non-infected, non-vaccinated children that are so irrationally feared and often forced to be vaccinated against their wills.
The incidence of measles has remained below one case per million since 1997, except in 2014, when 667 measles cases were reported, representing a reported incidence of 2.08 cases per million.
MMR (Mumps): In the US, the incidence of mumps is less than 2 cases per 100,000 population. In the United States, approximately 3,000 cases of mumps were reported annually in 1983–1985 (that equates to 1.3–1.55 cases per 100,000 population).
MMR (Rubella): In the US, the incidence of rubella (German measles) is less than 0.5 cases per 100,000 population. The largest annual number of cases of rubella in the United States was in 1969, when 58 cases were reported per 100,000 population. In 1983, fewer than 1,000 cases per year were reported in the United States (less than 0.5 cases per 100,000 population).
DTaP: Diphtheria is virtually non-existent in the US population
DTaP: Tetanus is rare in the US population and is non-contagious
DTaP: Pertussis (Bordetella pertussis – aka “whooping cough”) has an incidence of 55.2 cases per 100,000 infants/year that are less than 12 months of age; (98.2 cases per 100,000 six-month-old infants or younger).
(Therefore 99,902 six-month-old infants out of every 100,000 will not get whooping cough in any given year whether they are vaccinated or not!) Also, DTaP cannot safely be given to infants younger than 12 months of age, and the peak age of death from whooping cough is 2 months. It is uncommon for infants older than 2 months of age to die from whooping cough. Survival from a case of whooping cough usually confers life-long immunity. The vaccine does not confer life-long immunity.
In the current age of mass vaccinations, the incidence of pertussis has been actually been increasing since the early 1980s despite upwards of 90 – 95% vaccination rates.
A total of 25,827 cases were reported in 2004, the largest number since 1959. The reasons for the increase are not clear. A total of 27,550 pertussis cases and 27 pertussis-related deaths were reported in 2010 (a number of those who died had been vaccinated). Case counts for 2012 surpassed 2010, with 48,277 pertussis cases, with 13 deaths in infants
During 2001–2003, the highest average annual pertussis incidence was among infants younger than 1 year of age (55.2 cases per 100,000 population), and particularly among children younger than 6 months of age (98.2 per 100,000 population). In 2002, 24% of all reported cases were in this age group. However, in recent years, adolescents (11–18 years of age) and adults (19 years and older) have accounted for an increasing proportion of cases. During 2001–2003, the annual incidence of pertussis among persons aged 10–19 years increased from 5.5 per 100,000 in 2001, to 6.7 per 100,000 in 2002, and 10.9 per 100,000 in 2003.
Hepatitis B: The Hepatitis B vaccine is a synthetic, non-infectious vaccine.
The incidence of Hepatitis B in America is an extremely low 2.1 cases per 100,000 population. It is virtually unknown for non-immigrants. The vaccine contained thimerosal (mercury) as a preservative until 2000 and now contains the auto-immunity-inducing aluminum as an adjuvant.
Based on data from the CDC, the incidence of acute hepatitis B in the United States has declined steadily since the late 1980s. Between 1987 and 2004, the incidence of acute hepatitis B was recently reported by the CDC to be 2.1 per 100,000 (6,212 total cases reported nation-wide). It is a rare infection.
Pneumovax: As few as 2 cases of the rare invasive pneumococcal pneumonia occur annually per 100,000 population. It contains an aluminum adjuvant.
The CDC reported declines in invasive pneumococcal disease among children less than 5 years old – before the vaccine became available. Overall, invasive pneumococcal disease decreased from 100 cases per 100,000 people in 1998 to 9 cases per 100,000 in 2015. Invasive pneumococcal disease caused by the 13 serotypes covered by PCV13 decreased from 91 cases per 100,000 people in 1998 to 2 cases per 100,000 people in 2015. All the improvements occurred before the wide use of the vaccine.
Hemophilus influenza b (Hib): The incidence of the extremely rare Hib infection is as low as 0.08 cases per 100,000 in children younger than 5 years of age.
In the United States, Hib disease is rare. In 2015, the incidence of invasive Hib disease was 0.08 cases per 100,000 in children younger than 5 years of age. It occurs primarily in infants too young to have completed the primary immunization series.
In 2015, the incidence of non-b H. influenzae invasive disease – for which there is no vaccine available – was 1.3 per 100,000 in children younger than 5 years of age.
Non-typeable H. influenzae now causes the majority of invasive H. influenzae infections in all age groups.
In 2015, the incidence of invasive non-typeable H. influenzae infection was 7 cases per 100,000 in children younger than 5 years of age and 2 cases per 100,000 in adults 65 years of age and older.
Varicella (Chicken Pox): The chicken pox vaccine is a live virus vaccine. The incidence of wild-type chicken pox is highly variable and not reportable.
Influenza: Flu viruses have 100 – 200 different strains and therefore influenza has an unpredictable and highly variable incidence. Unbiased experts have judged most recent annual influenza vaccination campaigns to be miserable failures. The highly misleading statistics that are fed through the mass media by public health agencies like the CDC and by the pharmaceutical corporate propaganda campaigns (“relative risk reduction”) always magnify the benefits and minimize the dangers.
80% of what is commonly diagnosed as “vaccine-preventable” influenza is actually “Influenza-Like Illnesses” (ILI) for which there is no vaccine. The commonly over-promoted annual influenza shots are usually drawn from multiple-dose vials that contain the neurotoxic preservative mercury (thimerosal).
Neurotoxic aluminum adjuvants hyper-stimulate immune responses to whatever protein molecules (look up the critically important concept of “molecular mimicry”) to which the aluminum becomes attached, explaining the large number of vaccine-induced autoimmune (hyperimmune) disorders that are increasingly occurring in fully-vaccinated populations.
Aluminum adjuvants are used in the following vaccines:
DTaP, Hepatitis A; Hepatitis B; Haemophilus influenza type b; Meningococcus; and Pneumococcal vaccines.
Exposing Fraud at the CDC
Kevin Barry, President of First Freedoms, Inc. and author of Vaccine Whistleblower: Exposing Autism Research Fraud at the CDC wrote the following conclusion in an important article, which can be found here.
“…the vaccine industry experiments on infants every day. The vaccine schedule has never been tested as it is given. The results of the (decades-long) experiment are in:
1 in 7 American children is in some form of special education and over 50% have some form of chronic illness.
“Back in 1918-19, there was no safety follow up after vaccines were delivered.
“In 2018, there is virtually no safety follow up after a vaccine is delivered.
“Who exactly gave you that flu shot at Rite Aid? Do you have their cell number of the store employee if something goes wrong?
“In 1918-19, there was no liability to the manufacturer for injuries or death caused by vaccines.
“In 2018, there is no liability for vaccine manufacturers or for physicians for injuries or death caused by vaccines (by a federal law that was formalized in 1986).
“In 1918-19, there was no independent investigative follow-up challenging the official story that “Spanish Flu” was some mystery illness which dropped from the sky. I suspect that many of those at the Rockefeller Institute knew what happened, and that many of the doctors who administered the vaccines to the troops knew what happened, but those people are long dead.
“In 2018, the pharmaceutical industry is the largest campaign donor to politicians and the largest advertiser in all forms of media, so not much has changed over 100 years.
“This story will likely be ignored by mainstream media employees because their salaries are paid by pharmaceutical advertising.
“The next time you hear someone say ‘vaccines save lives’ please remember that the true story of the cost/benefit (ratio) of vaccines is much more complicated than their three-word slogan. Also remember that vaccines may have killed 50-100 million people in 1918-19. If true, those costs greatly outweighed any benefit, especially considering that plumbers, electricians, sandhogs and engineers did, and continue to do, the real work which reduces mortality from infectious diseases.
“Vaccines are not magic. Human rights and bioethics are critically important. Policy makers should understand the history of medical hubris and protect individual and parental human rights as described in the Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human Rights.”
