    The flu shot making people sick

    From the CDC: CDC cracks down on communications with reporters - Axios And this: Flu Vaccination & Possible Safety Signal Error processing SSI file Frank DeStefano? He was one of the CDC scientists who destroyed data on the 2004 MMR/autism link. There's something odd going on here.

    The flu shot making people sick

    Unless you realize that everyone with the flu is given antivirals & antivirals make people nauseous.

    "Houston we have a problem" This just got very real

    Ponder this. The CDC owns a patent on this variant of Ebola, and any other viral variant within 30% of this specific genomic sequence. http://www.google.com/patents/CA2741523A1?cl=en Patent holders for intellectual property waltz from industry to regulatory agency then back to industry unimpeded, a practice I find deplorable. For all practical intents & purposes they are married. The vaccine currently in clinical trial is being “fast tracked” by the FDA, meaning industry PAID the FDA under the Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) to get this off the ground, sans standard safety protocols. (In fact, half of the FDA’s budget comes from fees paid by manufacturers to facilitate accelerated approval for new drugs and medical devices). It’s worth noting, the virus in the before mentioned patent is not the same variant currently believed to be circulating in West Africa and that may very well be why American Ebola victims have been brought to the United States in the first place. From the patent description on the EboBun virus, we know that the U.S. government: 1) Extracts Ebola viruses from patients. 2) Claims to have “invented” that virus. 3) Files for monopoly patent protection on the virus. To understand why this is happening, you have to first understand what a patent really is and why it exists. A patent is a government-enforced monopoly that is exclusively granted to persons or organizations. It allows that person or organization to exclusively profit from the “invention” or deny others the ability to exploit the invention for their own profit. On one hand, it’s worth pointing out that the CDC’s patent on Ebola is at least partially focused on methods for screening for Ebola and treating Ebola victims with drugs or vaccines. This seems like a worthwhile precaution against an infectious disease that clearly threatens lives. On the other hand, why the patent? Patenting Ebola seems as odd as trying to patent cancer or diabetes. Why would a government organization claim to have “invented” this infectious disease and then claim a monopoly over its exploitation for commercial use? Make no mistake that billions of dollars in profits (and zero liability) are at stake in all this. Vaccines are the ONLY product with this unique marketing advantage. So, 1. The patent for this sub-variant of Ebola was acquired in 2007 for a vaccine that has proven disastrously elusive for decades. Long Quest for Ebola Vaccine Slowed by Science, Ethics, Politics "Slowed by ethics" Yes, ethics got in the way. 2. Safety steps are abandoned because the virus, which has never posed a threat beyond isolated outbreaks in Africa, is suddenly a possible pandemic of epic proportions. 3. Bring patients to America & show the world we have this under control, “see, we saved those heroic doctors”… 4. Sell us a scantly tested vaccine during a “crisis” (remember, you can't sue the manufacturer for a vaccine injury). 5. Nurses & 1st. responders will be the first to see the pointy end of the syringe. There are 5 individuals listed on the patent, where are they now? This is how Ebola is seen in the eyes of the investor. Because all pharma companies are publicly traded, their 1st. bound legal duty is to the investor. Fiduciary obligation, look it up. Ebola stocks: 2 to sell, and 5 to consider buying - MarketWatch Why Ebola Vaccine Makers' Stocks Soared (NLNK, TKMR) This blog is usually on the money when it comes to news in the development end of vaccines. Vaccine News | Vaccine Market | Vaccine Research | Fierce Vaccines I laughed at the swine flu panic, and was suitably horrified at the number of narcolepsy cases following vaccination in certain genetic phenotypes. Bringing Ebola patients to our shores? Well, either SKB is closer to an answer than thought, or we're in deep doo. My money on the former, literally.

    Childhood diseases return as parents refuse vaccines

    It does make you wonder. Vaccines bypass our first line defenses, mucous membranes & the lymphatic system. What is the long term outcome of circumventing defenses our bodies have spent thousands of years developing? Well, we don't know. Take polio, when the vaccine was developed, microscopes weren't able to differentiate between viruses. We now know that there were several other pathogens in play which were, no doubt, causing paralysis at that time, aseptic meningitis, GBS, Epstein Barr, just to name a few. Though they were all lumped in as polio. The vaccine industry has made some serious blunders in the past, yet are protected from all liability resulting from injury or death. The injured parties are relegated to vaccine court, where the rules of court don't apply. Government witnesses are allowed to present evidence in one case, stating this evidence proves there is no connection between the vaccine & the injury, then turn around & use the same testimony in another case citing it as proof of causation. Someone is being protected here, but it ain't us. My point in posting is to provoke thought, enlighten those who believe that vaccines are harmless & open a dialogue between professionals regarding any role we might, as patient advocates, make the process of protecting children from disease as well as preventing them from being chalked up as "an acceptable loss" for heard immunity.

    Would you feel the same way if your child had died from a vaccine adverse reaction? It's not really about taking sides, it's about taking a stand. Technology is advancing to the point where those individuals with pre-existing conditions could be screened to prevent injury. Our own government & vested industry are doing everything they possibly can to squelch this information from being made available to the public. Hannah Poling's parents wanted to talk about their child's case. They wanted to make their child's medical records public in order to help other children. The government opposed that motion for transparency and has done everything that they possibly can to prevent her records from being used as evidence. Why? What are they so afraid of? They dropped the case before trial to keep her records sealed. Relationships between the FDA and the pharmaceutical industry have led to a “revolving door,” in which pharmaceutical executives go to work for the FDA, making regulatory decisions on matters affecting their industry and sometimes even their own former companies. When their time at the FDA is over, they go back to higher-paying jobs in the industry. Bruesewitz vs Wyeth is an important victory for vaccine manufacturers, as now the only court to hear injury claims is VICP, as the door to recourse in a civil court is no longer a possibility. Only by ensuring that vaccine designs are as safe as possible and by ensuring access to justice in the event of injury will parents and individuals comply with vaccine mandates. Migration studies, in my opinion, would be very interesting. In Somalia there is no word for autism, but move them to Minnesota, or Sweden, or the UK the rate is 1 in 28. Perhaps it related to sunlight exposure & T cell function. Or perhaps it relates to the use of the single measles vaccine used in Somalia opposed to the mmr used in the US, Sweden & the UK. Yet these obvious problematic issues remain unaddressed by government & industry. While compulsory vaccine mandates without corporate accountability may be an appealing business model to industry, the risks to the public are unacceptable. This knife cuts both ways, we all know this. Vaccine....no vaccine....but when an industry refers to lives lost to vaccine injury as "an acceptable loss" (and remember, they have zero liability)... wear that shoe & see just how "acceptable" it feels.

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/entrez?cmd=Retrieve&db=PubMed&list_uids=9453625&dopt=Abstract Polymorphism in the Bordetella pertussis virulence factors P.69/pertactin and pertussis toxin in The Netherlands: temporal trends and evidence for vaccine-driven evolution. Sequence analysis of the genes for P.69 and the pertussis toxin S1 subunit, using strains collected from Dutch patients in the period 1949 to 1996, revealed three P.69 and three S1 variants which show differences in amino acid sequence. Polymorphism in P.69 was confined to a region comprised of repeats and located proximal to the RGD motif involved in adherence to host tissues. Variation in S1 was observed in two regions previously identified as T-cell epitopes. P.69 and S1 variants, identical to those included in the Dutch whole-cell pertussis vaccine (WCV), were found in 100% of the strains from the 1950s, the period when the WCV was introduced in The Netherlands. However, nonvaccine types of P.69 and S1 gradually replaced the vaccine types in later years and were found in approximately 90% strains from 1990 to 1996. These results suggest that vaccination has selected for strains which are antigenically distinct from vaccine strains. Bordetella pertussis Strains with Increased Toxin Production Associated with Pertussis Resurgence http://www.cdc.gov/eid/content/15/8/1206.htm An important issue is whether vaccination has selected for the ptxP3 strains. Several lines of evidence support this contention. First, ptxP3 strains were not found in the prevaccination era. Furthermore, although ptxP3 strains were found in high frequencies in vaccinated populations in the 1990s, they were not detected in Senegal, where vaccination was introduced in 1987. Several studies have provided evidence that increased host immunity may select for higher virulence. Vaccination against 2 avian viruses, the Marek disease virus, and the infectious bursal disease virus, were associated with the emergence of more virulent strains

    Please cite the studies where MMR + DPaT + Polio + Hep B + pick one... have been studied concomitantly. Here is a study of the MMRV (ProQuad) http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/724253 Results - After vaccination with all measles-containing vaccines, seizure incidence peaked during days 7 to 10; the most prominent peak was recorded after MMRV vaccination. During days 7 to 10, unadjusted rates for seizures were 84.6 seizures per 1000 person-years after MMRV vaccination, 42.2 seizures per 1000 person-years after MMR + varicella vaccination, and 26.4 seizures per 1000 person-years after MMR vaccination alone. Unadjusted rates during days 7 to 10 were nearly 8 times higher for MMRV and 4 and 3.5 times higher for MMR varicella and MMR vaccination alone, as compared to Varicella vaccine alone. Why would the delivery of the MMR + the varicella ... vs.... ProQuad have different outcomes? Could it be the fact that when you combine the measles vaccine with the varicella vaccine they behave differently? Could it be that ProQuad contains about ten times more chickenpox vaccine than the Varivax brand of varicella? Talk to the parents in Olympia Washington who's children had adverse reactions during the clinical trials. Our Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System is a passive system which depends upon doctors actually reporting adverse events. The system allows anyone to report an adverse event. You, me...anybody. Do you actually believe this is any way to track adverse events? As I posted before.... "DPT investigation was featured on the March 2 NBC News' "Now with Tom Brokaw and Katie Couric" show. At the end of February, NVIC/DPT also conducted a survey of 159 doctors' offices in seven states, including Arkansas, California, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, New York, and Texas. When asked the question "In case of an adverse event after vaccination, does the doctor report it and, if yes, to whom?" only 28 out of 159 or 18 percent said they make a report to the FDA, CDC or state health department. In New York, only one out of 40 doctor's offices confirmed that they report a death or injury following vaccination." Migration studies would be interesting, in Somalia there is no word for autism, but move them to Minnesota, or Sweden, or the UK & the rate is 1 in 28. Perhaps it's related to sunlight exposure & T cell function. Or perhaps it relates to the use of the single measles vaccine used in Somalia opposed to the mmr used in the US, Sweden & the UK. Why? well, we don’t want to look at that, the IOM made that clear.

    "i read this study....while the dna was present for another virus, no reported actual contraction of the virus was in the article you posted." i never said there was. i said the product was returned to market, and researchers do not know what the long term effects will be. this is a link for people to volunteer for the study, it is not a study. also, it is for people that already have a confirmed peanut allergy...so it is not preventative. allergen-specific immunotherapy and molecular characterization of allergens and their recognition by the immune system suggest strategies for refinement of sit (specific immunotherapy). selective targeting of allergen-specific t cells, especially regulatory t cells, is likely to be pivotal for efficacy. recombinant allergens lacking ige reactivity and small t cell epitope-based peptides are being trialled clinically with evidence of efficacy without serious ige-mediated adverse reactions. adjuvants, either co-administered or incorporated into a recombinant allergen vaccine (to) target tolerogenic dendritic cells may also increase efficacy http://www.iom.edu/reports/2004/immunization-safety-review-vaccines-and-autism.aspx you asked for citations, this link is to the transcripts of the immunization safety review: vaccines and autism, there 8 of these reports. you asked for these citations, so along with dr. healy's interview, i provided a link to the text of the meeting she referenced. "no, this was not a contaminant...this was a side effect that was later removed and long-term effects were not determined....according to the link you provided." sv 40 contaminated the polio vaccine, along with dozens of other simian viruses these contaminates were cataloged as batch after batch of the vaccine had to be destroyed....because, they were contaminated. even wiki recognizes a contaminate when they see one. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/sv40 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16920674?dopt=abstract http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12596420 http://jnci.oxfordjournals.org/content/95/7/532.abstract http://cebp.aacrjournals.org/content/14/6/1448.abstract http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9614376 "sequences related to sv40 large t antigen were present in 28.6 per cent of bronchopulmonary carcinomas, 47.6 per cent of mesotheliomas, and 16.0 per cent of cases with non-neoplastic pleural and pulmonary disease. no statistically significant difference in the occurrence of these dna sequences was found between malignant mesothelioma and bronchopulmonary carcinoma, but a significantly higher number of mesothelioma cases exhibited sv40-like dna sequences in comparison with cases of non-malignant pleural or pulmonary disease." frozen tissue samples taken during bronchoscopy where sv40 is found in the cancerous tissue, though not in the surrounding healthy tissue samples, have been documented extensively by dr. carbone. studies where formaldehyde preserved only samples were used have not revealed the same results, could it be that formaldehyde degrades the samples? "however, it fails to mention the small detail that there were not mass amounts of cancer reported by those that received the vaccine...odd, huh?" are you suggesting the incidence rate of cancer hasn't risen since the 1950's? "again, as several other posters have pointed out...the original study was proven to be falsified and the physician that ran the study lost their medical license. there is no evidence supporting vaccines and autism." iom meeting was more about thimerasol than the mmr. if you'd read the actual transcripts, you'd know that. those meetings were televised, i can obtain copies of the meetings for you, if you'd like.

    Have you looked? Comparative genomic profiling of Dutch clinical Bordetella pertussis isolates using DNA microarrays: Identification of genes absent from epidemic strains Background Whooping cough caused by Bordetella pertussis in humans, is re-emerging in many countries despite vaccination. Several studies have shown that significant shifts have occurred in the B. pertussis population resulting in antigenic divergence between vaccine strains and circulating strains and suggesting pathogen adaptation. In the Netherlands, the resurgence of pertussis is associated with the rise of B. pertussis strains with an altered promoter region for pertussis toxin (ptxP3). Conclusion The presented MLST, MLVA and CGH-analysis identified distinctive characteristics of ptxP3 B. pertussis strains -the most prominent of which was a genomic deletion removing about 23,000 bp. We propose a model for the emergence of ptxP3 strains. The resurgence of pertussis in countries with high vaccination coverage has been attributed to a number of factors, including increased awareness with regard to the disease, improved diagnostics, waning vaccine-induced immunity and pathogen adaptation [4,7]. Consistent with pathogen adaptation, numerous studies have demonstrated that the B. pertussis population has changed in several countries where vaccination has been implemented since the 1950s [9-13]. In particular, antigenic divergence was found between circulating strains and vaccine strains with respect to pertussis toxin (Ptx) and pertactin (Prn). http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2481270/

    1. a-- http://www.virology.ws/2010/05/07/porcine-circovirus-dna-found-in-rotateq/ The US Food and Drug Administration recently recommended that administration of Glaxo SmithKline’s Rotarix vaccine, which protects against rotavirus infection, be suspended after an independent research group found that the vaccine contains DNA of porcine circovirus type 1. Now the FDA reports finding circovirus DNA in the rotavirus vaccine made by Merck. The porcine virus remains in both the SKB & the Merck vaccines even though researchers do not know what the long term effects could be. b-- Simian Virus 40 is just that, the 40th contaminant found in polio vaccine, it has since been linked to cancer in mammals. http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/factsheet/Risk/sv40 "The issue of SV40 resurfaced in the last few years when an increasing number of laboratories, using an extremely sensitive molecular biology technique, the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), found traces of the virus in some rare human tumors including pleural mesothelioma (a cancer of the lining of the lung), osteosarcoma (a type of bone cancer), ependymoma and choroid plexus tumors of the brain, and recently non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (12–29). Other studies reported that SV40 T-antigen, a viral protein, binds to human tumor suppressor proteins such as p53 and RB (30–32), suggesting a possible carcinogenic mechanism. Not all studies, however, find that SV40 plays a significant role in human cancer (33–46)." http://www.iom.edu/Reports/2002/Immunization-Safety-Review-SV40-Contamination-of-Polio-Vaccine-and-Cancer.aspx In July 2002, the National Academy of Science Institute of Medicine (IOM) Immunization Safety Committee convened a study into SV40 and cancer which culminated in a report published in October 2002. According to the IOM report “SV40 Contamination of Polio Vaccine and Cancer”: The committee concludes that the biological evidence is strong that SV40 is a transforming (cancer-causing) virus, . . . that the biological evidence is of moderate strength that SV40 exposure could lead to cancer in humans under natural conditions, [and] that the biological evidence is of moderate strength that SV40 exposure from the polio vaccine is related to SV40 infection in humans. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18520265 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/13911590 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/13977058 2) I have not campaigned against vaccines. I stated that there is a growing concern regarding conflict of interest between governmental agencies & pharmaceutical companies. The direct result is eroding public confidence. 3) http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00850668 Peanut Allergy Vaccine Study in Healthy and Peanut-allergic Adults 4) (Copy & paste). Many peer reviewed papers are accessible by paid subscription only, making it near impossible to link them. I cannot quote studies that don't exist. For example, vaccines are studied in single administration, but not in combination, so the practice of giving multiple vaccines in one day has never been proven safe. If you know where to look, you also know where NOT to look..... The IOM made it clear in 2004, we don't need to study the population that got sick. http://www.iom.edu/Reports/2004/Immunization-Safety-Review-Vaccines-and-Autism.aspx http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=4088138n

    The vaccine schedule has change drastically in the past 20 years. Viruses have found their way into vaccines & we have no idea what those contaminates are capable of once injected into our bodies. I received all the recommended doses during my childhood, as did my own children. As for peanuts, the vaccine is in the pipeline, along with 200 or so more. Humans will continue to manipulate their immune systems without any regard to the long term effects. As I said earlier, parents are educating themselves, peer reviewed science is available to the public from multiple resources. A study published in the journal The American Journal of Public Health, which surveyed 11,860 families, found that mothers who had not finished high school were 16% more likely to have completed the whole vaccination schedule for their children. "Parents who don't vaccinate usually know all of the vaccine ingredients, side-effects, and details of the diseases. Those who vaccinate often haven't read anything other than the doctor's leaflet, are fearful of their child dying of deadly diseases and if they have questioned at all, they will have only questioned their doctor." More educated parents are less likely to vaccinate, which contradicts the misconceptions of many health professionals who profess that parents don't vaccinate because they are under-educated, poor or misinformed. The relative decline in uptake by highly educated parents also potentially has wider significance. Generally speaking, individuals with more education have better health. This is possibly because they are better informed about how to achieve better health outcomes.

    The ability to predict who will have an adverse reaction is becoming a reality. We will never reach 100%, true. Just has we have created super bugs with the over use of antibiotics, viruses are morphing as well. How much longer before the virus out smarts the vaccine? Oops, too late. In November 2010, BMC Genomics published "Comparative genomics of prevaccination and modern Bordetella pertussis strains" by Marieke J Bart, et al. This paper focuses on "how B. pertussis has adapted to vaccination." http://www.cdc.gov/EID/content/15/8/1206-appF.htm That leaves little room for question about the issue. The new strains of B. pertussis have developed in response to vaccinations for whooping cough. And lets not forget that further complicating the picture is that there are two kinds of bacteria that cause whooping cough: Bordetella pertussis and Bordetella parapertussis. Only one, B. pertussis has an associated vaccine. Is vaccination for B. pertussis causing these whooping cough outbreaks by providing a breeding ground for its cousin, B. parapertussis? It's pretty obvious that the CDC is aware of this, yet they still push to vaccinate kids with a vaccine which is causing the epidemic. Perhaps that unvaccinated child isn't the culprit he's made out to be & it's the vaccinated population that's the problem.

    Our government refuses to acknowledge any studies which aren't originally printed in English. Don't you want the opportunity to read all the studies? DPT investigation was featured on the March 2 NBC News' "Now with Tom Brokaw and Katie Couric" show.

In New York, only 1 in 40 doctors surveyed confirmed reporting vaccine injuries to VAERS. Don't you want all injuries reported? How can we make informed choices when the information we're given is full of holes?
