Was Dr. Andrew Wakefield Right After All?

Dr. Andrew Wakefield

Maybe those who were quick to professionally eviscerate Dr. Wakefield ought to listen up to what’s breaking in cutting-edge scientific research regarding autism and intestinal/gut problems associated with children on the autism spectrum.

January 10, 2012, the American Society for Microbiology published what I consider a stunning report, “Application of Novel PCR-Based Methods for Detection, Quantitation, and Phylogenetic Characterization of Sutterella Species in Intestinal Biopsy Samples from Children with Autism and Gastrointestinal Disturbances” authored by researchers at the Center for Infection and Immunity, Mailman School of Public Health, Columbia University, New York City—not in some foreign country. [1]

The researchers reported on using “the first Sutterella-specific PCR assays for detecting, quantitating, and genotyping Sutterella species in biological and environmental samples.” [1] This is significant information, I think, because the U.S. FDA, from what I understand, wants to prevent the PCR Test [polymerase chain reaction developed in 1983 by Kary Mullis], which can obtain results overnight and can be effective in vaccine issues—e.g., identifying viruses, possible adverse events or even prevention—from being made available to physicians, laboratories, and consumers. To understand more how PCR works, I suggest reading this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polymerase_chain_reaction.

Perhaps—I say perhaps—the problem with the FDA may stem from the ‘politics’ of science over patents and not that the test is accurate, useful, and can be helpful to healthcare consumers desperately looking for answers. Interestingly though, PCR can detect RNA viruses like measles and mumps, so what does that infer about implication for the MMR vaccine? Does the plot thicken?

Since the autism spectrum disorder now affects 1 percent of the USA population [over 3 million] and growing daily, it seems, one would hope that some connection of the dots will be made soon to stop this terrible affliction of two generations now—something our children did not experience in such ‘galloping numbers’ years ago, which the medical literature confirms.

Autism literally is a gut-wrenching health problem, which has been occurring since the push to vaccinate children with numerous vaccines began in the 1980s. Coincidentally, the ASD issue and multiple vaccinations seem to have become a parallel health issue or peculiarity.

In reading through the mBio’s online PDF file of the Mailman School of Public Health study, this sort of ‘jumped’ out at me:

Sutterella species have been isolated from human and animal feces (30–32) and have also been isolated from human infections below the diaphragm; most often from patients with appendicitis, peritonitis, or rectal or perirectal abscesses (22, 23). Sutterella sequences have been identified in fecal samples and intestinal biopsy samples from individuals with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis but also from apparently healthy adults (24, 25, 27, 33). Thus, based on these previous findings, it remains unclear whether Sutterella species contribute to inflammation and infection or are simply normal inhabitants of the human microbiota in some individuals.”

It seems Sutterella is associated with infections and/or inflammatory processes (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis), which leads me to ask this question:

What role do vaccines with their numerous antigen-reaction-producing chemicals play in the inflammatory process within the human body, especially in an infant’s or toddler’s body, whose immune system is not fully established until around 2 years of age or a little older, depending upon each child’s personal body chemistry?

Dr. Harold E. Buttram, MD, and I co-authored several papers about the inflammatory process within the brain that probably occurs from vaccines. You can read them at International Medical Council for Vaccinations. One, in particular, that may help you understand what transpires, “Vaccines and Brain Inflammation,” can be read here http://www.vaccinationcouncil.org/2011/06/01/vaccines-and-brain-inflammation/.

So, in light of what I’ve said in the above paragraphs, I cannot help myself from asking this, which medical researchers ought to investigate, I think:

  • What role does Leaky Gut Syndrome [damaged bowel lining] play with regard to facilitating the inflammation process to occur?
  • Does leaky gut syndrome present the classic example of which came first, the chicken or the egg? Is Sutterella induced, or does it induce bowel inflammations?
  • Are some children born with a mitochondrial proclivity for Sutterella? The Hannah Poling case brought mitochondrial proclivities to the forefront. Incidentally, mitochondrial proclivities may not show up until as late as 14 years of age.
  • Does each vaccine’s toxic chemicals damage the intestinal lining thereby producing leaky gut leading to Sutterella colonies in ASD children, which non-ASD children do not have, as the Mailman School of Public Health study reported?

Perhaps we ought to consider this:

  • Before any child is vaccinated, a PCR Test should be given before and then later to investigate and confirm the ‘leads’ being offered in the bacteria gut story reported in the Mailman study; Dr. Wakefield’s findings as long ago as 1998; and my suggestions in this article.
  • We know what the researchers Williams, Hornig, Parekh, et al, at Mailman Public School of Health came up with. Dr. Wakefield reported finding a measles strain in children’s gut that was the same as in the MMR vaccine, if I remember correctly. So, the next logical step, I think, is to start tracking what’s going on with gut problems in children on the autism spectrum.

Here’s my further suggestion, which I think is scientifically sensible:

  • Any child whose PCR Test results indicate any abnormal intestinal flora strain/growth should NOT be vaccinated, as they just may be the ‘hidden’ candidates for ASD.
  • However, if those children are then vaccinated ignoring PCR’s results, subsequent PCR Tests should be administered before any next scheduled round of vaccines [2, 4, 6 months to age 14] to make certain that no Sutterella has taken over the gut, which possibly could precipitate ASD, based upon the Mailman findings and Dr. Wakefield’s work, which—if taken seriously—may have eliminated the current ASD problems.

My suggestions could be done inexpensively [blood test in most cases], easily, and scientifically IF those who have vested interests in maintaining ‘vaccines are safe’ get out of the way and keep their money and influence away from the FDA and Congress, I truly believe.

    When the BMJ and others attacked Wakefield, they were essentially saying, “Don’t look over there … nothing to see… move along.”

    I say, ‘Thy Lady doth protest too much.’

    How many times is this man proven and validated by science? The problem is with the kiddos ability to absorb nutrients. Their guts are damaged. Ask any parent of an autistic child.

    I have been following Dr Wakefield for some time. There is a book called “Mistakes were made but not by me” by Carol Tavris and Elliot Aronson which mentions Wakefield and implies he was biased because he received money from lawyers who were representing families with autistic children.  No one is perfect. Perhaps he was wrong to take money from these people.  But that does NOT make his research wrong. 

    I believe he is right. It is very sad that this is still unresolved. All the while, children will be hurt by vaccines.

    Gut bacteria is inherited, autism is inherited, both are inherited, that’s why we find both together. AW was right that autistic people usually have gastric abnormalities but he’s as wrong as can be about the actual causes of autism.

    Vaccines do not cause autism as often as vaccine-preventable diseases cause autism.

  • Maggierosethorn

    Ummm….No.  Please learn to read.  And learn about PCR.  It is a very delicate test to perform to avoid contamination that gives someone a false positive result. 

    Anyway:  “Thus, based on these previous findings, it remains unclear whether Sutterella species contribute to inflammation and infection or are simply normal inhabitants of the human microbiota in some individuals.”

    It says RIGHT HERE!!!!  that is is not clear if this causes disease or is a normal part of the human microbiota. You can’t make any conclusion from this paper.  Please don’t corrupt science by cherry-picking.

    Doctors are workers, They work on nobody for free. That would probably be the reason behind taking money from the parents. It’s no different to going to see the Doctor for any other reason. They all get paid the minute we swipe our card or open our wallet. Besides that. How about the medical staff being paid per vaccination administered. Don’t tell me everyone in the medical world in any country is so honest that they wouldn’t accept this type of behavior from the squeaky clean pharm mob.

  • AussieMum

    Obviously Julian you do not have a child whose health deteriorated after each vaccine.

    My son lost the ability to speak around his second birthday. How does a child stop talking???? He has many gut issues and therefore he has a medical condition as opposed to a psychological disorder. Perhaps children like my son who have suffered from the cumulative toxins from vaccines, shouldn’t  be labelled “Autistic.”

    Autism is not genetic!  I am not autistic, neither is the hubby, our parents are not autistic and neither are our grandparents!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=659717857 Julian Pursell

    Unless I actually met your family, I couldn’t answer that for you. You may be half right. There may be more than one ’cause’ of ‘autism’.

    Maybe 99.999% of autism cases are genetic and your son is in the 0.001%?

    I’ve heard that cannabis can bring back verbal communication in some autistic people (that includes kids).

    Magie, I ahve just written an e-mail to the distributers of this information on exactly that issue! It harms the good that may be done in distributing information if that information is clearly disregarded and, as you say, “cherry picked” and lays them open ot criticsim by opponents, such as Julian. Julian, there is also an enormous hole in your argument: if the disorder of ASD is on the rise, and seems to have been over at least the last 2 generations please explain the genetics of ASD. I would be happy to be enlightened. Do you suggest that a mutation has occurred specifically and only in certain geographic areas? If so, to what do you attribute that mass mutation?

    Yet another interesting and well written article by Catherine F!It is not certain that doctors are aware of the PCR assays. After all, they often know little about vaccines.There should be more information to both doctors and parents about PCR assays. Maybe parents will then start demanding the test when doctors try to push vaccines?  Regarding Dr. Wakefield:
     “Dr. Wakefield’s crucifixion is a desperate well-orchestrated effort to restore faith in risky vaccinations that the majority of people worldwide no longer trust” ~Dr. Horowitz.
    We noted that in connection with the harassment of Dr Wakefield simultaneous broadcasts from radio stations worldwide announced that his work was fraudulent and they interviewed “experts” who all said that the MMR was safe.
    Questions and answers in these interviews were identical, irrespective of where they were broadcast from in the world.

    1. Everyone has bacteria in their gut.
    2. Some people have a bacteria called Suteralla in their gut.
    3. One way to identify bacteria is through a test called PCR
    4. Lots of things cause inflammation in the body
    5. Suterella sometime causes inflammation? Or is it just that it is often found in people with inflammatory-type diseases like Crohns?

    What does any of this have to do with autism?

  • Suzysunshine

    If autism is genetic, then how does the incidence explode in relation to the increase in vaccines?  The science of epigenetics has revealed that the genes respond to the environment.  They can be turned on or off by environmental factors.  So if a person has a gene which predisposes them to autism, then a vaccine, or the cumulative effect of vaccine after vaccine after vaccine, is the most likely environmental factor which triggers the gene to manifest in autism.  Stop blaming the parents for their genes!!!!

  • Argus

    The answer to your question is that Wakefield has never been proven and validated by science.  And when he was offered funding and the opportunity to repeat his study on a larger scale, which would confirm and validate it, he declined to do so.
    Only later was the original study involving 12 children found to be a fraud.  No wonder he didn’t want to repeat it – he knew his hupothesis would fail because it wasn’t really confirmed the first time around.
    Time magazine just named him to list of the greatest frauds of all time.  The world knows what he is; too bad a few people just don’t want to see it.

  • Argus

    Gut bacteria is inherited? How does that work?

  • Ninavirago

    Gut flora is not genetically predetermined. Epigenetics does provide a context in which genetics can be linked to autism, although it seems a tenuous link. Wakefiled has besmirched himself by not engaging the first principle of scientific (biomedical model) research and that is replicability. If he is not willing to have his hypothesis tested (and 40 is far too small a number on which to base “proof” an epidemiological study, which he knows!) There would appear to be a link between vaccination and autism because the two have run parrallel; and that is a hypothesis, not a proof. It is possible that the adjuvents are the irritants which cause the severe reactions, and some are known to be neurotoxic. Gut flora may be assocaited with autism but I cannot see how it would be a cause of autism; leaky gut is associated with poor diet (high in sugars) and antibiotic exposure. A child would need to be severely malnourished before neurologcal damage results; there is no increase in autism in areas which have experienced starvation, such as Bangladesh, India or Ethiopia and the Sudan that has been report.
    It is extremely important to resist the temptation to find reason where there is only suggestion.
    As to what is the “cause” of autism, it is still unkown. It is a dreadful thing for a parent to watch a child regress into wordlessness, and conjecture won’t ease that pain.
    I would suggest that anyone who is interested in a call to challenge one’s mindset regarding biomedical “proof” and the “set state” of autism to read/watch a truely remarkable story; The Horse Boy. Did you see it AussieMum? It was on the ABC in early November; can possibly download from iview. Enjoy the day!

  • Allison C.

    I am reminded of Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride’s book GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome) which discusses how parents with ASD children (along with many other disorders) can naturally heal their children through dietary changes, which heal the gut and therefor heal other parts of the body. Her work is amazing, and I really believe in what she is teaching and promoting.

  • Allison C

    A baby is sterile before it is born. When a baby come through the birth canal, it ingests it’s very first dose of flora, bacteria, and yeast. If the mother has unhealthy flora and bacteria and yeast overgrowth, the baby will too. At this point, the only way to heal the baby is through feeding the baby the right foods that will correct the problem. Probiotics and fermented foods are a start, but one also has to watch out for foods that will contribute to the overgrowth of harmful bacteria and yeast that can damage gut flora, such as processed foods and sugars, gluten, casein, and lactose. Damaged gut is a major factor for ASD development. This is why many autistic children respond well to dietary changes that involve removing gluten, casein, and lactose from the diet, because as the gut begins to heal, so too does the rest of the body.

    If you really  want to connect the dots to the unhealthy gut flora and autism, I suggest reading Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride’s book Gut and Psychology Syndrome:
    Natural Treatment For: Autism, ADD, ADHD, Depression, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Schizophrenia. She goes into extensive detail about how an unhealthy gut and guut flora can adversely effect the entire body and cause toxic overload, leading to ASD and other disorders, such as ADHD, etc.

    The benefits of biomedical treatment in autism have shown that it is not only the diet changes that are needed to heal the gut in autistic children, but as well many children have needed heavy metal detox and as some well antiviral treatment to bring about the complete package of major improvement that is seen.

    The benefits of biomedical treatment in autism have shown that it is not only the diet changes that are needed to heal the gut in autistic children, but as well many children have needed also heavy metal detox and as well some, antiviral treatment to bring about the complete package of major improvement that is seen. What does mainstream have to offer; more drugs!

    If that wasn’t enough for you to rethink and ponder on, Argus; here’s a little more. Safe and effective, just like they tell you? No chance vaccines ever caused autism, nor anything else? What? The only science and studies that matter are what the CDC cherry picks as acceptable and acknowledged; and/or the epidemiological studies that they funded with clear study design flaws and predetermined outcomes.

    Aluminum Adjuvant in Vaccines: A Smoking Gun Autism Link?

    The study’s focus is on the adjuvant aluminum. It’s a known neurotoxin that’s commonly used in vaccines. Of the 32 currently recommended vaccines for preschool children in the US, 18 contain aluminum. Although the etiology of 90% of ASD is still largely unknown, a growing body of scientific literature shows that neuroimmune abnormalities (i.e., abnormal cytokine profiles, neuroinflammation and presence of autoantibodies against brain proteins) occur in ASD patients and may contribute to the diversity of ASD phenotypes.Al [aluminum] is an experimentally demonstrated neurotoxin whose ability to impact the human nervous system has been known for decades.

    Read more:http://gaia-health.com/gaia-blog/2011-12-02/aluminum-adjuvant-in-vaccines-a-smoking-gun-autism-link/

    Do aluminum vaccine adjuvants contribute to the rising prevalence of autism?

    Excerpt form the conclusion: We have thus provided a hypothesis which we hope will encourage future research into this area in order to resolve the issue of whether or not vaccines might be responsible in some part for the growing prevalence of autism in the developed world. Such future research should consider the following: (i) the postnatal period represents a very sensitive phase in development during which the physiology of the nervous as well as the immune system can be influenced and sometimes permanently changed [8,9,118,119,152–154]; (ii) Al is neurotoxin and a strong immune adjuvant (Table 1), hence Al has all the necessary biochemical properties to induce neurological and immune disorders; and (iii) autism is a multisystem disorder characterized by dysfunctional immunity and impaired brain function [17,20,22]. Because the current safety data for Al exposure in infants and children is unsatisfactory and because this demographic represents those who may be most at risk for complications following vaccination, a more rigorous evaluation of Al adjuvant safety than what has been provided to date seems warranted

    Wow, Lowell, you’ve thrown a lot of stuff out there.  How about if we stick to the subject at hand – Wakefield and his discredited study.  Has anyone conducted another study to test the hypothesis of his orignal study and what were the results?  Why didn’t Andrew Wakefield do another one when he was given the chance?
    Meanwhile, we should mention that Mr. Wakefield recently received another award.  Medscape puts him at the top of their list of Worst Physicians of the Year for 2011.
    How can he expect to win this lawsuit proving he was slandered by Brian Deer and the BMJ when his reputation is so bad already?

  • Lawrence Mark

    “How can he expect to win this lawsuit proving he was slandered by Brian
    Deer and the BMJ when his reputation is so bad already?”

    By simply revealing the truth, maybe?

    And getting help from very credible, and bright people like Dr. David Lewis for example:

    http://www.marketwatch.com/story/whistleblower-scientist-accuses-british-medical-journal-of-institutional-research-misconduct-2012-01-09 …just the tip of the iceberg.

    The truth can be suppressed for only so long, until enough poeple start waking up, and saying ENOUGH already!! I do believe that that has begun, and there’s no stopping it once it gets rolling. So get ready to be owned Brian Deer, BMJ and the rest of your ilk.

    Sad, that people have short attention spans, and short memories, and rarely, if ever, learn from their mistakes, though. History will just keep on repeating its’ self over, and over like a broken record. For every step forward, we seem to have a need to take 2 steps back–DOH!

    Science, in the name of mammon (worship of money/power)… what a JOKE!

  • Catherine J Frompovich

    Thank YOU very much for enhancing my article.  Obviously, YOU get it!

  • Argus

    Inherited means that the trait came from the combination of the mother and father’s genes.  So what you describe is not ‘inheritance’ of a trait. That’s what I was questioning.
    The mother’s gut flora are in the lower intestine – not in the birth canal.  Your explanation does not cover how the baby gets the same gut flora that the mother already has.  Yes – if the mother has a vaginal infection of some kind – including an STD – that could get transferred to the baby.  But the potential from this is for other problems than just upsetting the baby’s intestinal flora.

  • Argus

    Catherine, your prediction, please, about the outcome of this lawsuit.  Will Wakefield win a judgment against Brian Deer and the BMJ for defamation? 

  • Argus

    What makes his research wrong is that he lied about the data and other aspects of the study.
    What do you think motivated him to do that?

  • Argus

    Not only does the article fail to answer this question (which means “No” is correct), none of the other responses to questions I have posed here have elicited any information that would vindicate him.  If you notice the two types of responses are:
    1.       “You’re ignorant” (OK, then answer the question and enlighten me)
    2.       “Here, read all this stuff” (None of which have anything to do with Wakefield, his original study, or the lawsuit that was just filed – the exception being a press release announcing the lawsuit)
    No one here seems to be able to put together even a couple of sentences describing one fact that Wakefield could use to show he is right.He doesn’t have any himself or he would have used them in the proceedings of other occasions when he needed to defend his actions.
    He doesn’t have any himself or he would have used them in the proceedings of other occasions when he needed to defend his actions.
     So the answer is still “NO!”

  • Novaxes

    It wasn’t a study.  It was simply a series of case reports with biopsy samples and clinical description.  How can you discredit that?  

  • Novaxes

    The mother’s most important flora, the lactobaccillus species is most certainly in the birth canal. And one of the problems with cesarian sections is that the first bacteria encountered is from doctor and nurses skin.  Very bad.

  • Suzysunshine

    Argus, if you are really so interested in Wakefield’s vindication, please enlighten yourself and read his book:
    Callous Disregard: Autism and Vaccines: The Truth Behind a Tragedy.
    He did present all the information and the court was so biased they ignored and/or hid or “lost” the information which absolutely vindicated him.  If you read his book and still feel the way you do, you will at least have heard how he presented his case, and what an unprincipled LIAR Brian Deer is. Listen to the parents of the children. Brian Deer lied and cheated his way into the home of one of the children to interview the mother, and then posted on the internet the children’s names and medical histories without informing the parents. This man has zero integrity.
    Have you ever actually listened to Andrew Wakefield speak? I can provide you with links to many of his interviews, which are freely available on the internet.  Just because Anderson Cooper (and all the other old media celebrities) spouted the same old pharmaceutical-industrial complex propaganda without doing his own investigation,does not mean he should be given credibility.
    If you want to know the truth you must at least listen to the man you are condemning.

  • Argus

    So what you mean is that the article that was published carried no weight and no-one should have given any weight to it.  Why do you think Wakefield passed up the chance to do a real study when he was offered funding?
    Of course that was before they knew about the falsified data in the article and the unethica medical conduct toward the children.

  • Argus

    What court are you speaking of? I am not aware that Wakefield has ever been on trial.

  • Novaxes

    He didn’t pass up on the real study.  The one he was about to publish in the J of Neuroscience showed that primates given the HepB vaccine and the infant vaccine schedule, compared to unvaccinated primates lost their suckling reflex and their survival instincts.  It was only after the preliminary printing of this article, that the powers that be decided something had to be done, and they took him out.  They discredited a series of case reports that sat in a medical journal the Lancet for 12 years, that he co-authored with others.  You Argus are a parroting fool.

  • Novaxes

    Congratulations Catherine.  You know you’ve really hit something on the head when skeptics stir in their lairs and visit you like this. Cheers to getting the truth out and vindicating Wakefield and shutting the skeptics up once and for all.  Suzanne

    What percentage of autistic children that go on this program are ‘healed’?

  • Suzysunshine

    Read the book please, and inform yourself.  Check it out on Amazon, where you could also get some insight from the reviews. Did you know Brian Deer was funded by the vaccine makers? And he misrepresented himself at every turn. He is a lay person with no medical knowledge, criticizing the work of an esteemed and compassionate pediatric gastroenterologist. The parents of the children in the case study tried to defend Wakefield as the only doctor who actually tried to find out what was wrong with their children, and the court refused to hear them as well. If you think Wakefield made it up, I can point you to broadcasts of these parents in their own voices.

  • Argus

    You did not answer the simple question I asked.  What court case are you speaking of? Was he charged with a crime?
    Don’t tell me again just  ”read the book”. Even if I did, how would I know what to look for since you won’t name the court case?

  • Argus

    The powers that be decided there were a lot of problems with the article and the way the study was conducted and retracted it.  So this one, too, carries no weight.

    Argus,

    You asked this question, has anyone conducted another study to test the hypothesis of his original study and what were the results? The answer is, yes; and the results are quite clear; would you like to read them? Perhaps the best way to do that is to actually read the studies, and at the very least the abstracts.

    I know that you believe that you have been told by the mainstream
    and the major media everything you need to know. However, if you are going to conduct any debate here at all Argus, you need to start paying attention. That question was already answered for you here, above! If you are unable to acknowledge, see, and realize the studies that are in front of you here; then how is it that you have conducted any unbiased research at all? You obviously haven’t; as it is clear that you have no interest in anything but what the major media information mislead you with. Wouldn’t it be interesting if every person who replied had to declare any existing conflict of interest, and reveal who they are?  

    This page right here should help you out so as to further clear up any confusion about the information I provided. But I doubt you will consider anything there at this point, as you cant even see what is here already. If you still have any confusion about those said studies, let me know?

    I do not have to give you information in the public domain just because you ask for it. I have followed this issue since it started and done my due diligence, so why don’t you? My point is that you are far from in possession of all the facts, and if you really care, as I said, you should read the man’s book where he gives ALL of the facts. The entire book is about the case Brian Deer brought against him so don’t worry about not knowing what to look for. Do you think Dr. Wakefield left his practice and moved to Texas just because he felt like a change in scenery?  Brian Deer is an unprincipled liar with Big Pharma money behind him (only reason he could do what he did) and you, my friend are completely uninformed and know not of what you preach.  If you are unwilling to read the book your whining should be ignored.

  • Argus

    Well Lowell, despite what you say over and over, nowhere in that myriad of links you provided is there anything about a published study that that tested the hypothesis of Wakefield’s article.  If I’ve missed it somehow, can you please provide the name of the study and name and date of the publication?
    But if you can’t do this, that’s OK, I have found one on my own.  Here’s a citation:
    Lack of Association Between Measles-Mumps-Rubella Vaccination and Autism in Children: A Case-Control StudyMrożek-Budzyn, Dorota PhD; Kiełtyka, Agnieszka PhD; Majewska, Renata MScPediatric Infectious Disease Journal: May 2010 – Volume 29 – Issue 5 – pp 397-400
    And what did the study find out?
    “Results: For children vaccinated before diagnosis, autism risk was lower in children vaccinated with MMR than in the nonvaccinated (OR: 0.17, 95% CI: 0.06–0.52) as well as to vaccinated with single measles vaccine (OR: 0.44, 95% CI: 0.22–0.91). The risk for vaccinated versus nonvaccinated (independent of vaccine type) was 0.28 (95% CI: 0.10–0.76). The risk connected with being vaccinated before onset of first symptoms was significantly lower only for MMR versus single vaccine (OR: 0.47, 95% CI: 0.22–0.99).
    Conclusions: The study provides evidence against the association of autism with either MMR or a single measles vaccine.”

    This is really weak, Suzy. You are not willing to provide a simple fact to clarify what you were referring to in an earlier post. Really?
    Let’s make it easier for you.
    Here’s a list of events (court cases and other proceedings) involving Wakefield that I found in the “public domain”.Please tell me if it is one of these.
    1. Libel case in the UK brought by Wakefield against Channel Four and Brian Deer.
    2. UK General Medical Council hearing on charges of professional misconduct against Wakefield and two colleagues.
    3. Defamation suit recently filed in Texas by Wakefield againts Brian Deer and the BMJ..
    Which one of these did you mean?

    So you’re not actually interested in treating your kids?

    That was the point of my comments. I don’t give a damn where autism comes from. All I know is that if cannabis works for most people with autism, that’s where we should be looking. Forward not backwards.

    Think of the children.

  • Argus

    Well here’s where it’s at, folks.  Suzy told a bit of a whopper – that Brian Deer took Wakefield to court where he was not allowed to present evidence in his own defense.  This did not fit with any facts that I knew about, so I asked which court proceeding she was referring to.Now Suzy may have just been reposting something she thought was true – but since she had not done her own due diligence, she cannot answer this simple question.Rather than admit this we see all the obfuscation and tap dancing.It doesn’t matter what Wakefield said in some self-serving book – this is the record:1. Wakefield sues Brian Deer and Channel Four for libel in the UK – then when it became clear he didn’t really have a case, he dropped his claim, and agreed to pay the defendants’ legal costs.2. The General Medical Council holds a hearing regarding Wakefield’s ethical conduct and finds him to have been “dishonest”, “unethical” and “callous”, making a decision to strike him from the medical register. Wakefield had ample opportunity to present a defense at this hearing.  He also had an opportunity to file for an appeal following their decision but chose not to.3. Wakefield has just filed a defamation suit in Texas against Brian Deer and the  BMJ.  Will he drop this one too, before it goes to trial?  Time will tell, but whether he gets to present testimony is completely up to him.Have I missed one? I’m still waiting to hear.

  • Suzysunshine

    Sorry that my statements were misunderstood.  I was referring to Wakefield’s hearing before the GMC, which was instigated by Brian Deer, operating as a big pharma shill.  Wakefield DID present his defense at this hearing, but as I said, the evidence was ignored or “lost” by those who would not see the truth if it was staring them in the face. For instance, he had full approval by the hospital ethics committee, which he documented in writing, and still they claimed he did not. And as I mentioned, the parents of the children in the case study who wanted to testify on Dr. Wakefield’s behalf were not allowed to.  Argus, I tire of this adversarial volley. You will believe what you choose, without bothering to hear all the facts.  “It doesn’t matter what Wakefield said in some self-serving book…” He told the story of what happened, which people like you definitely do not want to hear.  So keep your blinders on.
    For the rest of us who actually want to get to the truth about this issue, here is the golden opportunity:  A GARY NULL SPECIAL INVESTIGATION on Monday, Jan. 23rd (tomorrow)!EXPOSING THE INTERNATIONAL MEDIA CONSPIRACY TO SILENCE DR. ANDREW WAKEFIELD
    In the first hour, we will have a surprise guest whistleblower, with exclusive bombshell revelations that threaten to blow the lid off of the conspiracy by American and British media to discredit Dr. Andrew Wakefield. 
    Then in the second hour, Gary Null debates Brian Deer, reporter for The Sunday Times of London, about his allegations against Dr. Andrew Wakefield.  In a series of reports between 2004 and 2010, Deer investigated concerns over the MMR vaccine, their publication in The Lancet medical journal in February 1998, and their chief proponent Andrew Wakefield. Deer’s investigation led to the longest-ever inquiry by the UK General Medical Council.  In January 2010, the GMC judged Wakefield to be “dishonest”, “unethical” and “callous”, and on 24 May 2010, he was struck off the UK medical register. Responding to Deer’s findings, The Lancet partially retracted Wakefield’s research in February 2004, and fully retracted it in February 2010 following the GMC findings. In 2011, Deer published his findings in the BMJ with an endorsement by the editors.
    And finally, we discuss the vaccine-autism controversy with Andrew Wakefield, Dr. Edward Yazbak, Isabella Thomas, Clifford Miller, and Jim Moody.
    Dr. Edward Yazbak – Board Certified in Pediatrics, Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, and Medical Expert for the Social Security Administration Office of Disability Adjudication and Review. He has practiced pediatrics for 35 years, and since 1998 has researched the prevalence and causes of auto-immune regressive autism and vaccine injury. He has written extensively on those subjects and testified as a medical expert.  Dr. Yazbak’s grandson is autistic and was treated at the Royal Free Hospital by Drs Wakefield and Walker-Smith Isabella Thomas has two autistic children who were part of the original 12 patients in the Royal Free study reported in the Lancet by Drs Wakefield, Walker Smith, Murch and colleagues. Isabella has 4 sons — 2 who received the MMR vaccine and now have autism and serious bowel problems, and two sons who did not receive the MMR and are fine.  Isabella is also the parent Brian Deer has been most focused on.  Jim Moody is Dr. Wakefield’s US attorney and the current director of the family advocacy organization The National Autism Association, and the research think tank Safeminds, which provide excellent resources on autism and vaccine related issues.   He consults with the Petitioners Steering Committee on autism cases in Vaccine Court.  Clifford Miller is a lawyer in Kent, UK and a solicitor of the supreme court of England civil proceedings, who has specialized in intellectual property, anti-trust and legal issues in the electronics and communications fields.  Mr. Miller is a graduate physics and former examining university lecturer in law.  Over the years he has been active in investigating vaccine issues and science.  
    Monday, January 23 – 7pm Eastern Time / 4pm Pacific / Midnight GMT
    EXCLUSIVELY on Progressive Radio Network – PRN.fm
     This should be a really enlightening broadcast, folks.  Gary Null debating Brian Deer…Isabella Thomas speaking for herself. Gary Null is known for his in-depth investigation of scores of topics, you will not want to miss this fabulous and timely opportunity!  It will be available for download if you are unable to listen in real time.  Let’s get back together on this discussion board after this broadcast.

    Typical bait with a question you think they can’t answer because the CDC says they can’t answer it; then when you get the answer now twice, you claim the answer was not there. Why? Because you know the answer blows your claim out of the water and you must continue your CDC indoctrinated denial that no studies ever replicated Wakefields study and found the same findings. 

    What would I have to do Argus? Personally pull the information and the studies off the page and rub your nose in it, for you to to see it? If I were the editor of this site I would ban you from commenting. Why? For simple dishonesty and baiting with repeated ad hominem replies; while ignoring everything that is in front of you.

    If you do not even know enough about the Wakefields study to see in front of you other scientific studies that replicate it and find the same thing as he found, and as well multiple studies that support those findings;  then who’s fault is it? And with your no matter what, claims of no proof, and no studies, and as well repeatedly claiming Wakefield was still a fraud no matter how much evidence is put in front of you that it was not true, and that it was the GMC and Brain deer that had the conflict of interest; you still refuse to give it up.

    So now you think I should I additionally baby sit you and  further educate you to what you refuse to see? Looks to me like I know you and your type, better than you know you? 

    Tell me again that you can not find those studies, and/or that you missed them??? You are in deep denial ,Argus; and no one can help you but you.

    He didn’t even need to do an additional study because it had already been done and replicated with the same findings by others, more than once. He has stated repeatedly that those studies exist, and as I referenced to you.You have to take the availability and funding from where you can get it. Dr. Andrew Wakefield was additionally being discredited to prevent an historic study from being published that for the first time looks at vaccinated versus un-vaccinated primates and compares health outcomes, with potentially devastating consequences for vaccine makers and public health officials.

    Countless children have been helped and improved. Some to a point that the symptoms of no speech autism entirely disappeared. Can mainstream do that with their pharmaceutical drugs;of course not. Research it AND FIND OUT! Its not a patented drug and clearly implicates vaccines. Mainstream clearly chooses to ignore these biomedical results; diet restrictions to heal the gut, heavy metal, and viral detox. One, or a combination of have clearly worked.

    Yes, there was a hearing at which Wakefield was stripped of the right to practice medicine in Britain for his dishonest and unethical behavior. It was not instigated by Brian Deer, but even if it had been, why does that matter? He was found guilty of the charges on the merits of the evidence. Why do you want to support such an individual?

  • Argus

    So tell us, Suzy – did you listen to all six hours of this broadcast? I am particularly interested in the second hour segment.  Does “Gary Null debates Brian Deer” mean that Mr. Deer actually came on the program and engaged in a debate? Or does it really mean “Gary Null debates ABOUT Brian Deer” – with someone else, or maybe just with himself.

    No, she is not.Is it just your standard response to accuse anyone who points out inconsistencies in your pre-conceived notions as being from “Big Pharma”?
    That’s what’s known as the “Pharma-shill” gambit. I guess it’s supposed to signal that the person is biased.  Problem is – facts are facts, no matter who presents them or what their motivation for doing so.  Calling them names doesn’t change that.

  • Argus

    Let’s try a test, Catherine.  Imagine three scenarios:1. Brian Deer gets his paycheck from Big Pharma2. Brian Deer gets his paycheck from the publishers he writes for3. Brian Deer is independently wealthy and gets paid by no-one.
    In which of these three circumstances is Wakefield right and the rest of the world wrong?
    Answer: None of them.  Wakefield’s actions and the consequences of them stand on their own.  Brian Deer may have shone the light on them, but no matter what his motivation may was, that doesn’t change what the facts are.
    So why do you bring this up?  Is it just to change the subject?

  • Argus

    Apparently it is true that lactobacillus is usually present in the birth canal and it can be transferred to the baby during birth. But like all of us, as soon as the newborn is exposed to the outside world, they are also exposed to all kinds of organisms, both benign and potentially harmful.
    I still think using the term ‘inherit’ – in the sense that one inherits genes tha determine hair or eye color and other traits from. oth parents – is a bit of a stretch.

  • Argus

    “Countless children” – so I guess if we can’t count them, there aren’t any.
    Anyway, to answer my question, all you would have to do is select a random sample – large enough to be statistically significant- that underwent this treatment then identify how many were ‘healed’ and how many were not. Has anyone done that, and published the results in a credible scientific journal?

  • Becky Fisseux

  • Argus

    Agreed!

  • Argus

    Why do you always try to change the subject? Maggierosethorn pointed out an instance – using the words in your own article – where you cherrypicked. So either explain how she is not correct ( I don’t see how you can, since it is there for all to see) or own up to it and admit she is right.
    All this casting about and accusing others of being ‘cherry-pickers’ looks childish. Sort of like the “I know I am, but what are you?” game.

    What does mercury have to do with Wakefield’s ‘investigation’ into MMR?

    How much mercury – or mercury-containing compound – have ever been present in a dose of MMR?

    The answers to these questions are why I labeled Michael’s comment as a non-sequiter.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Lowell-Hubbs/1285214003 Lowell Hubbs

    Of course mercury has never been present in any live vaccine, such as the MMR; as it would deactivate the live or actually attenuated aspect to the vaccine. Mercury of course has nothing to do with the MMR vaccine, nor Wakefields study. However and irregardless of that, the question was put forth.

    Are you saying mercury is okay to inject into your children? 

    Would you care to answer that question, Argus? I am interested in your response, and as well as may be others? The reason I am asking you, is in regard to laying down the groundwork required to show just a bit more of this regarding the fact that the entire foundations of vaccine policy, are not based on the existing science, nor the scientific credibility of the CDC. What vaccine policy is based on is purely vaccine politics, profits; covering their butts, and when they have clearly to much to much to lose. Look at the bogus Simpson Wood Conference that was conducted in an attempt to thwart the scientific evidence existing as to thimerosal. Just like the ADA has done in regard to amalgam tooth fillings. The bulk of the existing science does NOT and should not encompass only those epidemiological studies that the CDC funded and cherry picks. Real science and vaccine science should not exclude the field of toxicology, nor neurotoxicology, etc.

    Second question. How many vaccines have you had lately, Argus?

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Lowell-Hubbs/1285214003 Lowell Hubbs

    Are you kidding? One of main focal points of accusation that Deer and the GMC put forth was that Wakefield was actively connected to and involved in related vaccine litigation, and that he supposedly collected payment for it. Yet, when the information is clear that Deer and the GMC had Merck and GSK pharmaceutical company connections (with to much to lose), resulting in a much greater conflict of interest; then to YOU it just wouldn’t matter as to the existing bias in the outcome??? And these people play dirty; with unlimited amounts of money and resources to throw at anything they want. Why do you think that study stood on its merits for that many years; but then as soon as Wakefield was known involved in a 5 year collaborative with a Pittsburgh University to do such as primate/vaccine studies, with a study in the works to be published; then all hell breaks lose on Wakefield? The study gets published, and then soon after retracted, as the smoke and mirrors attack on Wakefield progresses and hits the worlds major media sources. If you do not think that any pharmaceutical company would ever play that dirty, and thus throw whatever it takes into the mix; you are simply not living within the true reality of our corporate world. And it wouldn’t matter how wealthy Deer was, if he was.

    If autism is 99.9% genetic, then apparently there has been a huge shift in defective genetics since the 1987 enactment of the NVCA, and the quadrupling of now no liability vaccines? In a period of a little over 20 years, there has been produced a shift in defective genetics resulting in a change from a known 1 in 10,000 previously autistic; to now 1 in 100??? This is what you claim to Julian? And if this is the case, then why has Paul Offit after throwing all the money that they have at their disposal it to find that specific autism gene, so far come up empty as to anything conclusive? Or perhaps you aren’t actually interested in the so called science, Julian?

    recovering caroline: the journey

     

    Caroline was born on June 2, 2006 and was a happy,
    healthy, playful baby… until 6 months of age when she received the DTaP,
    IPV/OPV, Hep B, PCV7 and a Flu shot all at her 6 month well child visit.  After that, she began exhibiting a shaking
    behavior any time her excitement or sensations became more than she could
    process.  Other than that, she was still
    fairly typical.  She began to babble and
    was developing a few words… Ma-ma, da-da…the words that touch a parent’s
    heart.  However, after 12 months of age
    (and the MMR), she lost them and did not gain any others.

    A clue to the GI problems that plague many kids with autism?

    Excerpted:

    The investigators found that over half of the children diagnosed with autism and gastrointestinal disturbances had Sutterella in intestinal biopsy tissue, while Sutterella was absent in biopsies from typically developing children with gastrointestinal disturbances. Not only was Sutterella present in the intestines of children with autism, but relative to most genera of bacteria, Sutterella was present at remarkably high levels. Sutterella species have been isolated from human infections previous to this study, but it remains unclear whether this bacterium is a human pathogen.

    The LeRoy Twelve is Now Fifteen. Students Set to See PANDAS Doctor Today. Are Vaccines Involved?

    Excerpted:

    The latest from LeRoy, New York is that the number of affected students has now grown to fifteen, including 14 girls and one boy.

    Erin Brockovich’s team is in town attempting to answer the question, “Are environmental toxins to blame?”

    Dr. Rosario Trifiletti is also in LeRoy, where he will be evaluated the students for PANDAS (Pediatric Autoimmune Disorder Associated with Streptococcus).  As my previous article explains, PANDAS can be caused by different bacterial infections, but the most commonly recognized are streptococcus and the bacteria that causes pneumonia.  As I have also written previously, these bacterial infections do not cause neurological symptoms unless they are able to gain access to the central nervous system, where they attack the basal ganglia, anterior cingulate gyrus, and the cerebellum.

    Bacterial and viral infections do not gain access to the brain unless the blood brain barrier is damaged.Toxins damage the blood brain barrier.  So, this means that it is highly likely that BOTH Erin Brokovich AND Dr. Trifiletti are heading in the right direction as they search for explanations.

    There are a couple of things I hope these two professionals will keep in mind.

    Ms. Brockovich:  As you investigate the external environment in and around LeRoy, please do not forget to consider the interaction between environmental toxins that cause chronic exposures and environmental toxins that are injected directly into the body, causing acute exposures. Specifically, do not forget to investigate vaccines and vaccine additives.  Aluminum, mercury, formaldehyde and polysorbate 80 are all contained in vaccines given to adolescents. The onset of symptoms in this particular group of students indicates that it is not just the chronic exposures at work; rather, there is something that happened to THESE students that made them develop their symptoms so suddenly.

    Aluminum Toxicity 

    Aluminum causes an oxidative stress within brain tissue.[8] Since the elimination half-life of aluminum from the human brain is 7 years, this can result in cumulative damage via the element’s interference with neurofilament axonal transport and neurofilament assembly

    In this regard, dietary excitotoxins including aluminum can exacerbate the clinical presentation by worsening of excitotoxicity and by microglial priming. This opens the discussion to the use of nutritional factors that reduce excitotoxicity and brain inflammation as a maneuver to alleviate neurotoxic effects of aluminum.[10, 11] The central nervous system appears to be extremely sensitive to metal-induced oxidative stress. High aluminum concentrations have been found in postmortem brain specimens of patients with Parkinson’s disease and on animals models where administration of aluminum caused a strong decrease in dopamine content of the striatum.[12]

    http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/165315-overview

    Mechanisms of Aluminum Adjuvant Revealed: Vaccine Risks to Children Clarified

    Blood-Brain Barrier and Detox Function in Infants

    [There is suggested in the scientific literature as well, that aluminum further weakens the blood brain barrier and helps transport toxins into the brain that the blood/brain barrier was intended to keep out. Well ahh, such as bacterial and Sutterella organisms; irregardless of if they are of a natural or foreign origin. Don't expect the CDC to have any of the many studies as to the adverse effects of aluminum on their site any day soon. So, we are as well combining the MMR vaccine with other aluminum containing vaccines, and you can imagine the potentials for unknown consequences, like autism and much more. The level of the cherry picked science at the CDC actually amounts to this scenario right here; "We don't look at nor reference the existing science that we chose for us and the public not to see and consider"].    
    The report states:

    [D]uring prenatal and postnatal development the brain is extremely vulnerable to neurotoxic insults.  Not only are these highly sensitive periods of rapid brain development but also, the blood-brain barrier is incomplete and thus more permeable to toxic substances during this time.

    Furthermore, the renal system of infants is not mature. Therefore, infants’ ability to eliminate a toxin like aluminum is compromised.

    Children are at far greater risk from aluminum adjuvants because of the combination of rapid brain growth, an incomplete blood-brain barrier, and a limited ability to eliminate toxins.

    Polysorbate 80: C64H124O26 a Detergent, Emulsifier, Solubilizer, Stabilizer. These chemicals are similar to detergents in their ability to increase cell permeability, damage, and bursting.The blood-brain-barrier (BBB) can be weakened and penetrated, followed by seizures and even death. Anaphylactic and other reactions can occur. Infants are particularly susceptible.

    Gardasil, over 600 mcg aluminum content in the combined three shots, plus polysorbate 80; and now HPV DNA locked right onto the alumium. And look at the now 1000′s of non-recovered from outcomes; new medical conditions?

    Yes Lowell, I am advocating that good people should campaign strongly for research into cannabis for autism.

    Until the research is done we really won’t know whether it’s better for autistic kids to eat cannabis or smoke it. Sorry I couldn’t give you a better answer.

    Seems autism has been around for a long time: http://www.autism.org.uk/news-and-events/news-from-the-nas/media-response-prevalence-study.aspx

    Why use cannabis, when other well proven and natural protocols exist? Do you have any studies or anecdotal evidence as to cannabis in the treatment of autism? How do they compare to what I put forth? Can you answer that? Did you even look at or review what I put forth, Julian? Are you thus as well, disregarding that information?

    Use cannabis because it may work and it’s probably very safe. Of course.

    Lowell, if want to know more just google ‘Cannabis for Autism’ and you will find it all.

    I’m sorry I don’t have the inclination to review your alternative methods. If they work, why can’t you find me *over one thousand* anecdotes saying they work (even if no science is available)?

    If you think you have an autism treatment that works then what does Orac have to say about it?

    Why are you so resistant to cheap, safe autism medicine? Perhaps you cannot make money from Cannabis medicine so you attack it?

    Have you even tried it? It’s not prohibitively expensive like most treatments.

    Question: Why is your name now, Argus_nominus-maf? Is that supposed to hold some criptic meaning?

    What I meant by countless, is that the exact number is not known; however the accounts of it are numerous enough to realize that this thing is going on to a degree that is not exactly what would nor should be considered small scale results. And exactly what scientific journal would be credible enough for you? And if no such study sufficient to and for your liking was available, then thus in your mind it just is not true that any children have been healed, nor in your mind has biomedical treatment provided any help at all for autistic children? Is that in your mind, correct; as that is what you are clearly seem to be stating here?

    You are clearly making the claim that biomedical treatment in regard to autism, is worthless; correct? You are denying that large numbers of children have had autism reversed by diet restrictions that healed the MMR damaged leaky gut. You are denying that heavy metal and as well viral detox as well has provided and contributed to that healing and reversal of this so called and diagnosed autism in children. And the only thing you will believe in is a random sample large enough to be statistically significant; correct? That already and clearly exists. And to you, any number of numerous witnessed and parental accounts of this happening; are NOT good enough for you? It must be published in a peer reviewed journal or it does not exist, and it never happened; correct?

    What journal do you accept; the AAP, AMA, GMC; what? And you expect someone to pay for such a study that would be accepted by one of those journals? Why is not the CDC funding that study? Because they already know the result of it, and it implicates vaccines; and they are not touching it. So much for your credibility, Argus_whatever- maf.

    So here now, you are expecting me to educate you? Why have you not done your research, before you replied? Do you find anything here in these studies; to your liking? Let me know; and if not, why not?

    The vaccines, contain aluminum, polysorbate 80, and other ingredients that cause Suteralla bacteria to more easily cross over and through the blood brain barrier, and that is the purpose of the blood brain barrier to keep what isn’t supposed to be there out. Why is it predominanty the autistic that are found with Suteralla in the gut; and then go add a load of vaccines, and well… Ahh? All the science is in, isn’t it; they have looked at all the CDC funded studies, no matter where done, and found that vaccines do not cause autism? Correct? So far they looked at one vaccine and one ingredient. Yup, its all conclusive.

    Can’t you ridiculous SkepDicks learn to read? At least come up with a new anti-
    Wakefield mantra.

    Vaccines cause brain damage and death but not Autism?  Come on!

    I don’t think anyone is listening to you anymore Argus.  Your argument has no merit.

    Fine, Argus.  I challenge you to go to the doctor and ask for every vaccine that is being given to our children.  Will you do it for the good of your health and others?  If you won’t, then don’t expect parents to accept these vaccines for their little children.

    The bigger question that begs to be answered is this? Back in my day, growing up in the 50′s & 60′s & 70′s, WHY was there no Autism? Guess what? When I was a kid, they came out with the polio vaccine. They also had the smallpox vaccine which was discontinued by 1970. Once they started with more and more vaccines, strange things started happening and people started showing up with all kinds of neurological problems. It was exposed in the late 90′s that Thimersal in vaccinations was causing Autism. In private meetings, attended and reported on by Robert Kennedy, Jr., it was admitted there was a problem and they would stop putting mercury in the vaccinations (except for those that became BUNDLED). The sad thing is that they continued to allow the tainted vaccines to be used that were still on the shelves. Those vaccines were used in kids like my Granddaughter and my brother’s Grandson, living on opposite sides of the country and BOTH children born in 2001 and fully vaccinated. BOTH were diagnosed by the age of 3 with both of them showing signs of a problem around the 18-month old marker. My granddaughter had bad reactions.

    There was a huge smear campaign against Dr. Wakefield. Every pediatrician’s office you go into has pages taped all over the place debunking his work and calling him a fraud. But hang around the parents of kids with Autism and other neurological disorders, and you’ll find out the truth. When children go from normal one day and then become dysfunctional the next and for the rest of their lives because they received a shot … something is terribly wrong AND CRIMINAL.

    Catherine, Thank you for putting Kary Mullis (PCR) and Wakefield on the same page. I have been waiting to see someone do that for some time.  Not just because of the light PCR could shine on the issue but also because I think Wakefield is following Mullis’s ideas on scientific method. Kary wrote the following in 1998 and it aptly describes both sides of this issue; Wakefield is trying to do science and his enemies are trying to do politics and money. http://globalwebpost.com/farooqm/study_res/mullis/method.html

    The one thing that I find incredible and really should put light on the topic but is ignored. In the early 90`s, yes 90`s. Vacinations for many pets were reduced due to serious intestinal and neurological damage. The pet owners got it but when humans have the same isues the power of the dollar corrupts all common sense. They are all being literally raped by profit. Follow the Dollars. Look who is working at the CDC and where their financial interests are. Look who works at the drug companies and where they make their political donations. The answers are there. Could someone please make a real effort to bring this to light.

    As I said before. Treatment first.

    Then if anyone is still unhappy, blame.

    Only then, if someone is still in that dark place, revenge.

    Then when you’ve quite finished – let’s not forget the plights of the small minority of people who have been impacted by vaccine injury. These people should be recognised as war heroes, victims of ‘friendly fire’ in the eternal war against deadly infectious diseases.

    Mind you, have you seen how we treat our veterans recently?

    Only if you can prove parachutes do not do more harm than good, using gold standard double-blind randomized placebo controlled trials, first?

    Then I will ride tandem on your unicorn Lady Frampovich.

    Do you have a peer reviewed study in a tier one journal to back up your claim about the blood brain barrier.

    You just repeated answer # 1. Good work.
