Voices for Vaccines: 11 Facts Show How it’s a Propaganda Ploy for Emory University, CDC, and Big Pharma

syringes

Do pharmaceutical companies believe in their product?

No.

They believe in money and power – they answer only to their stock holders. If they believed in their products, they wouldn’t require legal protection from their product harming children through Public Law 99-660 (the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986). Furthermore, they wouldn’t need to force parents to vaccinate their child through mandates (that’s why you need an exemption).

I preface this article with the following, because Big Pharma and the pro-vaccine lobby know their ship is sinking. Parents are investigating vaccines and asking doctors questions they cannot answer in record numbers, which is shooting holes in Pharma’s bottom line.

How do you plug up these holes to stop the ship from sinking? The answer is quite simple: copy what parents are doing in the anti-vaccine movement.

Enter a blog called Voices for Vaccines.

Perhaps you have seen the recent story hosted on the website Voices for Vaccines entitled, Growing Up Unvaccinated?

As you can probably guess from the title, it is a story of a mother who grew up unvaccinated. The woman in the story changed her mind in adulthood and decided vaccines were really beneficial to her health. [1] While this mother converted to the religion of vaccinology made headlines, there is an even bigger story underneath the surface if you just scratch at it a little.

If you haven’t guessed by now, it has to do with the relationship between the Voices for Vaccines website and the pharmaceutical industry.

The website is a marketing scheme for pro-vaccine interests, no matter how much money or artificial it is. You need to know who owns the website and understand the question, “Who influences the Voices for Vaccines website?” or, put in a different way, “Who benefits?”

Let’s get started.

 

Fact #1: Task Force Owns the Voices for Vaccines Website

You should know that the Voices for Vaccines website is owned by the Task Force for Global Health, the third largest charity in the United States. Voices for Vaccines claims that it is “a parent-led organization that supports and advocates for on-time vaccination and the reduction of vaccine-preventable disease.” [2]

While the administrators of the website are noted as being two mothers, the energy, as we shall see, is channeled by larger forces.

 

Fact #2: Task Force is the Third Largest Charity in US

The third largest charity in the United States brings home $1.66 billion a year, according to Forbes. [3] Yet, if you’re not from the Atlanta, Georgia, area, chances are you probably haven’t heard of the Task Force for Global Health.

This fact alone should tell you there is big money involved; you’ll see where the funds come from.

 

Fact #3: Task Force Employees Work For Emory University

Now that you know the Task Force for Global Health owns the website, it’s time to step into the deeper end of the pool.

Before I show you who is influencing the website, you must know Task Force employees are actually working for Emory University. The situation is a bit more complex when you look at the Task Force’s IRS Tax Form 990.

Page 49 of their 2011 document states, “The Task Force for Global Health Inc. is an affiliate of Emory University, and as such, all Task Force employees are in fact Emory University employees. For both the President and Executive Vice President, Emory University includes these positions in its annual market review of compensated professionals in these categories …” [4]

We’ll come back to this important point in a bit, as you’ll see most of their leadership and members have some affiliation with Emory (and also the Centers for Disease Control).

 

Fact #4: Proximity of Task Force, Emory University, and CDC

We haven’t discussed the Centers for Disease Control connection yet, but we will.

Let’s take a look at how closely the following three organizations are connected to each other. According to Google Maps, the Task Force for Global Health is located 2.6 miles from Emory University, and the Centers for Disease Control are located on essentially the same campus.

By itself, the proximity of all of the organizations means little. But there’s more to the story.

You’ll notice an intimate relationship between Emory University and the Centers for Disease Control.

Geographic location of Task Force for Global Health

 

Fact #5: Influence of Scientific Advisory Committee

To understand who is controlling the energy for Voices for Vaccines, and the Task Force organization at large, you need to understand their relationships and affiliations. It’s enough to make your head spin, so that is why at the end of this article I am providing a mind map graphic to make this a bit easier for you.

Here is an example of what I mean.

Alan Hinman is the director for various positions within the Task Force, including his leadership role for the Voices for Vaccines website. The IRS Form 990 for 2011 states he was paid $188,453 for his work. While the program Voices for Vaccines may not accept funding from pharmaceutical companies or government grants, he has his fingers in other pots that do.

Here are a few facts about Task Force director and Scientific Advisory Member Alan Hinman [5]:

  • He is on the Scientific Advisory board for Voices for Vaccines.
  • He is director of Task Force Program Accelerated Measles Mortality Reduction Improving Routine Immunizations in Africa (AMMRIRIA) which is funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
  • He is director of Task Force Program Rabies Vaccine/Immune Globulin Emergency Stockpile (RaVaGES) which is funded by Novartis Pharmaceuticals.
  • He is an adjunct professor at Emory University.
  • He was a former Centers for Disease Control Epidemic Intelligence Service Officer.
  • He was the Director of the Immunization Division at the Centers for Disease Control.
  • He is on the Scientific Advisory board for pro-vaccine organization Every Child by Two, with Dr. Paul Offit. [6]


Here is more about Scientific Advisory Member Paul Offit:

  • He is on the Scientific Advisory board for Voices for Vaccines.
  • He holds a patent on a Rotavirus vaccine with Stanley Plotkin (Mr. Plotkin is also an advisory member). [7]
  • He worked with vaccine manufacturer, Merck, to create the vaccine and receives royalties. [8]

  • He has served as both a paid and unpaid member of a scientific advisory board at Merck. [9]
  • He was a former Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) member for the Centers for Disease Control.
  • He is on the Scientific Advisory board for pro-vaccine organization Every Child by Two, with Alan Hinman. [6]
  • He is on the Advisory Board for the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC) with Stanley Plotkin, led by Deborah Wexler. [10]
  • He is the director of the Vaccine Education Center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Of interest, Deborah Wexler (IAC) and Amy Pisani (Every Child By Two) are also advisory board members for the Vaccine Education Center. [11]

 

And more about Scientific Advisory Member Deborah Wexler:

  • She is on the Scientific Advisory board for Voices for Vaccines.
  • She is the executive director for the Immunization Action Coalition. [12]
  • The Immunization Action Coalition receives funding from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC Grant No. 5U38IP000290) and pharmaceutical companies. [13]
  • She is an advisory board member for the Vaccine Education Center at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. [11]

 

Lastly, Scientific Advisory Member Stanley Plotkin. He is well-accomplished within the vaccine community, so here are just a few salient items about him:

  • He is on the Scientific Advisory board for Voices for Vaccines.
  • He is on the Advisory board for the Immunization Action Coalition (IAC). [13]
  • He worked for the Epidemic Intelligence Service of the Centers for Disease Control. [14]
  • He was a former Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) member for the Centers for Disease Control.
  • He is an Executive Advisor to Sanofi Pasteur. [15]
  • He is on the Board of Directors for Dynvax. [15]
  • He was Director of Infectious Diseases and Senior Physician at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. [15]
  • He was Professor of Virology at the Wistar Institute. [16]
  • He holds a patent on a Rotavirus vaccine with Paul Offit. [7]

 

Fact #6: Task Force Board of Directors Have Relationship to CDC / Emory University

You should know that the Voices for Vaccines website falls underneath the Task Force “umbrella.” This means that obviously Director Alan Hinman takes his marching orders from a higher authority.

Even if there are a few members who are on the Emory payroll, it is important to see the relationship between Emory and the CDC with the other board members as well.

On the graphic below, the “red star” icon next to the name mean there is an association to Emory University. A “blue person” icon indicates a relationship to the Centers for Disease Control.

Board of Directors

  1. Jane Fugate Thorpe, JD, Chair: Former Emory University Board Member [17]
  2. Paula Lawton Bevington, JD: Emory University Dean’s Council [18]
  3. James W. Curran, MD, MPH: Dean and Professor of Epidemiology at Emory University, Former Researcher at Centers for Disease Control [19]
  4. John B. Hardman, MD: Emory University Faculty [20]
  5. Charles H. “Pete” McTier: Emory University Graduate and Former Administrator, Board Member Centers for Disease Control Foundation [21]
  6. Mark L. Rosenberg, MD, MPP President and CEO: Emory University Faculty, CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control [22]
  7. Carol C. Walters, Treasurer & Founder: Former Executive Assistant to the Assistant Director of Centers for Disease Control

 

Emeritus Members of Board of Directors

  1. William H. Foege, MD, MPH emeritus, Founder: Emory University Advisory Board Member and Faculty, Former Director for Centers for Disease Control
  2. Howard H. Hiatt, MD emeritus
  3. James T. Laney, PhD emeritus: Former President of Emory University [23]
  4. Former US Surgeon General David Satcher, MD, PhD emeritus: Honorary Degree from Emory University, Former Director for Centers for Disease Control, Board Member for Centers for Disease Control Foundation [24]

 

Fact #7: Task Force Started by Rockefeller, UNICEF, WHO, United Nations, and World Bank

Looking at how The Task Force for Global Health was started is also important. According to their web page, they were, “initially tapped to serve as a Secretariat for a consortium of global health organizations: UNICEF, WHO, The Rockefeller Foundation, The United Nations Development Programme, and the World Bank.” [25]

Understanding the motives of the Rockefeller family, as an example, is perhaps the best understood by author and researcher Lily E. Kay. She writes about the Rockefeller philosophy extensively in her book, The Molecular Vision of Life.

On page eight, she explains, “The motivation behind the enormous investment in the new (“Science of Man”) agenda was to develop the human sciences as a comprehensive explanatory and applied framework for social control grounded in the natural, medical, and social sciences.” (notation mine)

“Applied social control”, simply stated, is the misuse of any branch of commerce, science, law, politics, or religion for compliance to an ulterior motive held by those in power.

Lily Kay continues to elaborate, “With that agenda, the new biology (originally named “psychobiology”) was erected on the bedrock of the physical sciences in order to rigorously explain and eventually control the fundamental mechanisms governing human behavior, placing a particularly strong emphasis on heredity.

The “heredity” that Lily Kay speaks of is a concept known as eugenics, or better known in today’s age as genetics. [26]

 

Fact #7: Emory Owns Stock in Vaccine Company

Emory University stands to gain financially from vaccine research. The university owns twenty percent stock in a vaccine company called GeoVax. [27]

If you look into this company further, you will see the complex set of relationships between Emory University, the CDC, and pharmaceuticals. Dr. Harriet Robinson, co-founder of GeoVax, developed AIDS vaccine technology in her laboratory with researchers from the Centers for Disease Control during her time at Emory University. [28]

 

Fact #8: Pharma Pays Emory University

As a side note, Big Pharma payouts to Emory University are not a secret.

Emory University and some of their employees receive hundreds of thousands of dollars from pharmaceutical companies. [29] This certainly does not make their stance regarding vaccines a philosophical one. Theirs is backed with dollars.

Go to ProPublica’s Docs for Dollars program and do a search for “Emory University.”

Fact #9: Programs Funded by Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is a financial contributor to several programs that the Task Force for Global Health operates. [30] To be noted, William H. Foege, founder of Task Force for Global Health, serves as the Senior Medical Advisor for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. [31]

  • Accelerated Measles Mortality Reduction Improving Routine Immunizations in Africa (AMMRIRIA)
  • Polio Antivirals Initiative
  • International Trachoma Initiative
  • Neglected Tropical Diseases Support Center

 

Fact #10: Programs Funded by Pharma

Programs for The Task Force for Global Health is also heavily funded by pharmaceutical companies. [30]

  • Rabies Vaccine/Immune Globulin Emergency Stockpile (RaVaGES) – Novartis
  • Children Without Worms – Johnson & Johnson, GlaxoSmithKline
  • International Trachoma Initiative – Pfizer
  • Mectizan Donation Program – Merck, GlaxoSmithKline
  • Neglected Tropical Diseases Support Center – GlaxoSmithKline

 

Fact #11: Task Force has Partnered with Merck for Over 25 Years

There is an old axiom that nothing in life is for free.

Merck has partnered with the Task Force for Global Health for over 25 years. Through the Mectizan Donation Program, they have donated free pharmaceuticals to eliminate river blindness in third world countries, like Uganda. [32]

Could it be possible Merck uses this “good will” in exchange for peddling their dangerous vaccines for experimental vaccine trials? As an example, in 2012 Merck announced a national Gardasil vaccination program in the Republic of Uganda. [33]

Additionally, in 2013 Merck has launched the Merck for Ugandan Mothers program, spending $500 million dollars to build their medical infrastructure, such as “enhancing” the role of local pharmacies. [34]

 

Conclusion

The Voices for Vaccines program at the Task Force for Global Health may be administered by a few mothers, but they are not the ones pulling the strings behind the scenes. The information in this article reveals who keeps the lights on for the website and the Task Force organization as a whole.

Furthermore, the past, present and future relationships with the Centers for Disease Control, Emory University, and pharmaceutical companies should immediately raise a red flag for any parent. Especially when the message calls for you to blindly trust doctors injecting dangerous chemicals into your child.

    Science has never shown that vaccination prevents disease.

    Wow. Just checked out the voices for vaccines FB page and they are extremely hateful and attack anyone who disagrees with their position on vaccines!

  • Roxanne

    Excellent investigation into just another example of the revolving door of power,
    politic$ and profit – a tangled web of deceit, propaganda and control, increasingly
    pushed via PR front groups. Dr. Angell’s revealing comments were never more
    on target:
    “Now, primarily a marketing machine to sell drugs of dubious benefit, the pharmacheutical industry uses its weight and power to co-opt every institution that might stand in its way, including the US Congress, the FDA, academia, medical centers and the medical profession itself.”
    Dr. Marcia Angell, former Editor, The New England Journal of Medicine

  • Roxanne

    For anyone who doubts how twisted the powerful revolving door is, ‘Sweet Misery’
    is a must-see. Though it’s not about vaccines and is an older doc. re.
    aspartame, it provides an excellent example of the Orwellian regulatory process
    in which the toxic is rubberstamped, and scientific integrity is silenced.

    Thank you Jeffry for this brilliant investigative study, so professionally presented. It has obviously involved a lot of work.

    VaccineRisks -

    Appreciate the kind words.

    Given the fact Emory University is the fourth largest contributor in the US for the discovery of new drugs and vaccines by public sector research institutions, we should understand their relationships and how they can possibly affect public health policy.

    We should be especially skeptical of influence from private interests.

    Thanks for asking Debby. Sure – as long as the source is cited.

  • Roxanne

    What’s “good science” about poor, short-term trials not designed to look
    for auto-immune problems, that use NON-INERT placebos and don’t even monitor for carcinogenic, mutagenic affects, impaired fertility? Read the vaccine monographs, it says so right from the horse’s mouth.

  • Lucy Hill

    That website is complete fiction, it’s just propaganda to sell jabs and spread profitable disease

  • Lucy Hill

    Vaccine studies are incredibly poor, even a high-school kid would fail their science practicals if they used such poor methodologies. They don’t use real controls in safety studies, only compare to another vaccine. They only follow the subject for a few days, so if they go down with Diabetes Type 1 or MS in 2 months, it won’t show up. If a subject dies they can say it was a coincidence and remove them from the study. The whole thing is a lie, Big Pharma know very well that vaccines are not safe.

  • Lucy Hill

    They’re all paid posters too, all following strict rules as to what to post, I know someone who used to do exactly that job

  • http://vactruth.com Jeffry John Aufderheide

    Certainly where there is a lot of money and opportunities for power, we must look a bit deeper into the situation.

    It appears the pharmaceutical companies have firmly entrenched themselves in Georgia. These companies have everything to gain by influencing academia and policy makers when it comes to vaccines.

    This could be, in part, because many of the people who have a part in the Task Force organization have worked for the Centers for Disease Control.

    any idea how much their paid?

  • Lucy Hill

    In the UK they start on £50,000 per annum i.e. $83,000. It’s very easy money for them, but quite a few end up throwing in the towel because they realize that they are the ones in the wrong; lying and posting propaganda. They have a guilty conscience.

  • Lucy Hill

    Good point! Also teams of similar posters have been tracked down to US military bases. Reddit is full of that type, manipulating the voting and creating contrived submits about Andrew Wakefield which they artificially vote onto the front page.

  • courageandhope

    Frank Y. Wong, Emory professor, member of “Vaccine Dinner Club” (links below) is the author of the 2/6/2014 CNN article: “Opinion: Blind eye to scientific fraud is dangerous”

    http://edition.cnn.com/2014/02/06/opinion/wong-scientific-fraud/index.html

    This opinion piece links to a Jan. 6, 2011 CNN piece “Retracted autism study an ‘elaborate fraud,’ British journal finds.’ (This concerns the substance of Dr. Andrew Wakefield’s defamation suit pending in a Texas appeals court right, now on jurisdictional issues, against Brian Deer, the editor of the BMJ, and the Britich Medical Journal itself. Dr. Wakefield stringently denies all allegations that the 1998 Lancet paper was fraudulent. He refutes them in his book “Callous Disregard, Autism and Vaccines – the Truth Behind a Tragedy” (Skyhorse Publishing: NY 2010). Will there be no end to the defamation of Dr. Wakefield?

    Dr. Wong is apparently a Center for Aids Research investigator at Emory University and, per his bio, member of the “Vaccine Dinner Club” whose members include: “academia… public health… industry (Georgia Research Alliance, Geovax and Merck), government (Note: CDC, Carter Center are listed under public health, not government. Strange.)… community based research organizations… the “4th estate,” (internet, print [CNN?])… charitable foundations (Gates, Robert Woods Johnson)… and general public. Funny, CNN didn’t mention that Wong works in vaccine research.

    Comment moderation is very selective at this site, as many have found, including myself.

  • elnura

    Extremely well researched and articulate report. I am speechless and I know as long as I’ve been doing my own research and reading the articles on Vac Truth I shouldn’t be but I am. The vaccine industry sees and feels eveything closing in on them and their 50 years plus scam is going to be exposed and they are panicking. Someone on the inside is going to break soon. I truly believe there are some good people working at the CDC, FDA & big pharma. Somebody is going to say-enough.

  • Roxanne

    Wow, what a sum to regurgitate programmed propaganda. Can you fill us in on more, as to how these people are recruited by which front groups etc, how they are “promoted”, and what’s included in the “rules” they are ordered to follow. I’d love to read a confession by one of these paid propagandist who’s decided to come clean.

  • Roxanne

    It would be revealing to do an expose of the inside history of the CDC. This article was great… Any chance you’d
    do a write-up on the Centers for Disease Creation?

  • Roxanne

    The irony is that service men and women are subjected to so many vaccines.

  • sabelmouse

    wouldn’t mind that money, nor would my daughter. pity we have a conscience.
    how is this advertised though. is it those ” make so much from home ” type of things?

  • sabelmouse

    me too.

  • Mike

    I am a parent of a child with autism that was in my belief directly related to vaccines. I am also an Emory graduate. I can tell you this. The next time Emory calls me and asks for money I will have a few very unpleasant words for them

  • Roxanne

    Yes, and they’ll deserve to hear those unpleasant words. This article needs
    to get out into Emory’s circles – students, profs etc.- to openly expose this
    tangled web of corruption.

  • Cherry Misra

    I have a dream- !!!- We all stand in front of the CDC headquarter, chanting- Mr. Obama, tear down this building! And later we will put a few of the pieces in our museum of autism.. .

  • Jim Bob

    Fact #12

    This article is one giant ad hominem containing no actual scientific information about vaccination. Just the allusion to impropriety based on donations to charity and ownership of stock.

    A good conspiracy theory for those “lone gunmen” types but for those who use science for knowledge, this article is only good for toilet paper or kindling.

  • http://vactruth.com Jeffry John Aufderheide

    The nature and intention of this article is not to discuss scientific merits of vaccines – and I’m going to assume you knew this, as you have claimed in the past you work in the realm of academia.

    Additionally, it is safe for you to pretend “science” exists in a vacuum with little influence from those who sit in the throne of power.

    Since you do work in academia, I presume, it would be in your best interest to dismiss monetary influence from corporations or relationships between the private and public sectors, would it not?

    Yet – I am going to bet you are the same type of person that insists on being called by your academic title, as you demand respect and authority, as if it means something.

    Jim Bob is a bot. This ‘query’ like other bot posts, don’t read the content and that’s how you can tell absurd ineffective bot posts.

    I was a rabid vaccine pusher. I was let behind closed doors in both areas of vaccines and it’s partner in crime genetic research. Even faced with the cold hard facts I couldn’t believe my OWN ears and eyeballs. That was over twenty years ago, and I was shocked how just doing a little research in medical libraries easily brought down the house of cards vaccines are built upon.

    Of course the multi-billion dollar religion of vaccines is having to play catch up in the world of social media. Truth be told, that ship has long sailed away from them because more and more ‘rabid’ vaccine ‘believers’ are having to face their own ‘cold-hard-facts’ when someone they love is damaged or worse struck down by this lie.

  • Jim Bob

    Well asking people to make informed decisions based on a conspiracy theory is ludicrous (which is clearly your intention). Actually, I work as an administrator at an academic institution. I am not an academic myself.

    “Additionally, it is safe for you to pretend “science” exists in a vacuum with little influence from those who sit in the throne of power.” – If this is the basis of your decisions, than you’re going about science in the wrong way.
    And yes, I’ve seen research funded by private interests. 99% of the time, the donor actually never meets the researcher. The researcher applies for a grant and either receives it or doesn’t.

  • Tom Gibbs

    The only thing being asked by this article is that people understand the relationship between those who promote the use of vaccines and the profits they stand to make from their efforts. Like it or not, this is the bottom line.

  • http://vactruth.com Jeffry John Aufderheide

    Right, Tom – the data are simply visualized.

    It’s put in a format where, if the reader wants, they can go look into the matter on their own and come to their own conclusions.

    For some, it is easier to dismiss and call it a conspiracy theory.

  • Jim Bob

    To sum up: Ignore the science, look at the funding (which has no bearing on outcome nor provides a visualization of whether the data presented is wrong).
    Where the funding came from has no bearing if you are able to refute the science. Since you can’t, you launch this attack on their credibility (a pretty weak attack at that). Its anti-vax gambit number 1.

  • Jim Bob

    If you think that’s the bottom line, then you’re being naïve.

  • Tom Gibbs

    Who profits the most from an unquestioned, mandated vaccination program certainly deserves looking into. I think it is naive to blindly trust those who seem compelled to deceive consumers by creating these phony covert organizations for the sole purpose of manipulating public opinion rather than proudly conducting their business in the full light of day. What are they trying to hide and why? It is certainly enough to raise suspicion in any reasonable minded person.

    Speaking of science, please provide any clinical evidence that empirically demonstrates the efficacy of vaccines. There is plenty of anecdotal evidence but that is not science. I think that would be a good starting point in the debate over vaccines.

  • Jim Bob

    You say deceive…I say inform. A health charity created a website to pass on medical information from experts in the field of infectious diseases and epidemiology.
    The science is clear. The science has been questioned (by every public health agency in the world, along with every university that has a medical school along with the pharmaceutical companies themselves not too mention the regulatory agencies and charities like the above). The science has been proven (by all of the above and the results have been published). Vaccines are both effective and safe.
    Who profits from this does not affect the science.
    PS. Fact 4 made me laugh the most. How idiotic is that one? But I bet there is some anti-vax loon out there eating that one up.

  • http://vactruth.com Jeffry John Aufderheide

    You refer to “the science” as if it were a religious dogma.

    Which science is clear, specifically? Have you taken the time to look at the CDC’s own data on disease mortality from the 1900s – 1960s?

    Explain the 95% reduction in measles mortality prior to the vaccine being manufactured.

  • Tom Gibbs

    I have asked for years from every healthcare expert I come in contact with to provide empirical evidence regarding the efficacy of vaccines and just like you, they all respond with “all the experts agree” and then quickly change the subject. That is not evidence. Show me one independent study that shows that vaccines are responsible for the eradication of any disease. The evidence does not exist. Polio was well in decline before the introduction of its vaccine. Sanitation and proper nutrition have probably contributed more to to the disappearance of all the targeted diseases.
    All that I have ever found relative to vaccines is that, at best, they may provide some slight short term resistance to those targeted diseases. However, it is even more clearly shown that vaccinated children are still susceptible to those diseases. Also, in order to maintain the false sense of protection, life-long boosters are necessary. because the “protection” is only temporary.
    Who profits certainly does affect the science. In fact, It appears to be all it is about.

  • Jim Bob

    Mortality and morbidity are very different things. If I were looking to deceive others I would present things like mortality rates.
    If I were looking to inform, I would present morbidity along with rates of change and incidence. After showing that, I would show risk factors for the intervention (in this case vaccines). Just yesterday, a study was released by Public Health Ontario that showed for over 8 million vaccine doses given in 2012 there were only 50 serious adverse events. None of those adverse events were deaths and almost all were related to an allergic reaction. From that study, the flu vaccine was considered the safest.
    But I suppose, Tom and yourself missed that one.

    But the top 14 epidemiological studies can be refuted, and as well shown to have flawed study designs, use of unreliable data, predetermined outcomes unsupported by the data, and major conflicts interest in funding.

    f a person follows the increase in vaccines after enactment of the 1988 federal vaccine court, and pharmaceutical companies no longer having any liability regarding adverse vaccine reactions and vaccine harm; these numbers correlate perfectly with that increase in numbers of vaccines and vaccine doses given.

    A complete analysis of all of the main and larger epidemiological studies that they at the CDC, claim to showing no connection between Vaccines and ASD. Clearly those studies are unreliable, and they as well amount to nothing more than statistical junk science; based on flawed study designs, unreliable data, a high amount of bias; and funding by sources with an obvious and clear interest in not finding any connection.

    Morbidity refers to the state of being diseased or unhealthy within a population.

    Mortality is the term used for the number of people who died within a population.

    Demographic reference: Morbidity refers an incidence of ill health in a population.

    Mortality refers to the incidence of death or the number of deaths in a population.

    Why is it that whenever the provaccine side gets cornered they just simply again move the goal posts? First the provaccine side proclaims vaccines have saved millions of lives, and when that is shown to be false and/or contain no actual evidence of the vaccine causation; they simply move the focus to morbidity, instead of mortality.

    What about as well the state of ill health and the chronic health conditions created by vaccines. You obviously deny that is happening.

    Data from the study showed that developmental disabilities (DDs) are common: about 1 in 6 children in the U.S. had a DD in 2006–2008. These data also showed that prevalence of parent-reported DDs has increased 17.1% from 1997 to 2008. This study underscores the increasing need for health, education and social services, and more specialized health services for people with DDs. [And this does not even include of course increased rates of asthma, allergies, ADHD, diabetes, autoimmune disorders and disease, cancer, etc. known to be in a larger part caused by vaccines.]

    Do you suppose that all those multiple vaccines with aluminum adjuvants, have anything to do with that? Oh, I think they definitely do.

    JimBob (and his other alias, Argus) only posts when he can make up some bullshit to contradict the content. He is a pharma pole smoker. I try to get him to debate with me all the time but he doesn’t have the sack to go toe to toe with me in a battle of wits. Probably because he’s a brain dead, pharma pole smoking, lie spreading government troll. But I love him so much

    Voices For Vaccines Should Have To Disclose Donor Lists.

    The Global Task Forces puppet ‘project’, Voices For Vaccines, conspired with Colorado legislatures to force public schools to disclose private information of those students in the schools who exercise their God given right to ‘choose’ what goes or does not go into their bodies so that the puppet organization can mobilize they’re psychotic task force, at a later time, to harass and menace those children and the schools they attend. With the end game of removing any medical freedom choices concerning vaccines what-so-ever.

    If they want that private info then, the people in EVERY community Voices For Vaccines are operating in, need to demand Global Task Force ‘disclose’ THEIR private information and determine if State local reps are in any way compromised with those donors.

  • brothersun

    sablemouse Thanks for posting that Sott article! It expands thoroughly on my intuition that the most avid pro-vaxers are atheist, and since they have abandoned traditional faith in a higher power, they are now left to attempt to save themselves and society using human intellect alone. And this is precisely why they refuse to look at how much of a failure their strategy has turned out to be. For to admit such failure is to admit that they are truly lost in every way.

  • sabelmouse

    my pleasure. i don’t know if that’s true but i do think that many who see themselves as non religious aren’t at all.
    worse, as they are not aware of their own religiosity they are extremely irrational.
    and unaware of what goes on in their own minds and indeed , kind of lost.

  • Arf

    vaccines don’t overwhelmingly help people and mankind isn’t contributing to climate change….. I think we should all risk life threatening illness on our children to attempt to stop money going to companies that will make a ton of money no matter what we do. Also measles and mumps went away because god willed it.

  • Martin

    Look at the names of the people who are behind sticking people with needles. Notice a certain trend? Hint: what country has been getting uncritical support from American media as they bomb little children? Who do you think owns the media and Hollywood? Wonder what their “protocols” are? Once you understand that, you’ll understand what the libs are up to and why. Those “elders” do not deserve our respect.
