The Public Is Kept in the Dark About Many Medical Issues

The 'lights are out' when it comes to the medical community reporting on adverse reactions to vaccines.

The British Medical Journal in its February 28, 2012 issue published a rather remarkable article by Deborah Cohen, Investigations Editor at BMJ, titled “Joint BMJ / BBC Newsnight investigation raises new concerns over hip implants, which may affect more people than the breast implant scandal.” [1]

First, I want to applaud BMJ for pointing out that the hip implant scandal may affect more people than the breast implant scandal.  However, how many more people—especially innocent children—are being affected by the vaccine scandal?

Why are so many young children contracting so many unheard of medical syndromes that did not appear in the medical literature 50 or more years ago, e.g., Autism, ADD, ADHD, childhood cancers, and something termed “Shaken Baby Syndrome” that may be vaccine-related brain damage from multivalent vaccines, especially when no physical trauma presents on the infant’s body.  See my 2-part series how bone density tests can disprove Shaken Baby Syndrome published at International Medical Council on Vaccination February 5, 2012

http://www.care2.com/greenliving/germany-decides-genetically-modified-foods-are-not-welcome.html , and February 9, 2012  http://www.vaccinationcouncil.org/2012/02/09/bone-density-shaken-baby-syndrome-part-2-by-catherine-j-frompovich/.

Second, if the BMJ is willing to admit that medical scandals have occurred regarding hip and breast implants, why is it so reluctant to investigate the parallel rise in childhood chronic disease rates, seizures, and behavioral problems that coincide with the ever increasing mandated childhood vaccination schedules since the 1980s?

Third, the investigation that occurred in the United Kingdom faults regulators in both the UK and United States for keeping patients in the dark about the DePuy Orthopaedics (a Johnson & Johnson Company) metal-on-metal hip implants that have been found to be releasing metal ions, which may be carcinogenic because of the genotoxic risks of cobalt and chromium ions.  The scientific community has known about those genotoxic risks for more than a year or so—how about decades!  Business as usual, I’d say, since science has known of the neurotoxic effects of mercury and aluminum for even longer, and no one is blowing the whistle on neurotoxins in vaccines pumped into infants starting at birth, then at 2, 4 and 6 months until the child receives a total of 36 before going to school.

If the BMJ and BBC were so willing to investigate the hip replacement system, why are they so loath to investigate things like mercury (Thimerosal), aluminum, formaldehyde, MSG, and an entire witches’ brew of foreign DNA, rDNA, aborted human fetal tissue, and manufacturing chemicals that are ‘thought’ to induce immune response but, probably are ‘killing our kids softly’?

Why isn’t BMJ calling for independent third party investigators to delve into the resurgence of infectious diseases occurring within vaccinated populations since vaccines are supposed to be ‘disease prevention’ prophylactics?  Why is the public kept in the dark about that?

Since Dr. Cohen states that DePuy knew about hip implant genotoxicity back in 2005, what kind of slap on the wrist do you think DePuy will get?  Perhaps independent investigators ought to scrutinize the UK and FDA approval process paperwork to find out what was not included that DePuy probably knew about and should have reported.  Much has been written about how the approval process is skewed in favor of the applicant.  Professor Donald W. Light talks about “The Food and Drug Administration: Inadequate Protection from Serious Risks” in the book The Risks of Prescription Drugs (Columbia University Press, 2010) available on Amazon.com.

Cohen further talks about metal-on-metal hip replacements being subjected to only simulated mechanical testing and not how it functioned in the human body. [2] Simulated computer testing is used in a lot of approval processes within U.S. government agencies and they are fraught with disastrous results, I think, otherwise healthcare consumers would not be having all the problems they do with prescription drugs, medical devices, and vaccines.

Probably nothing elucidates safety problems at government approval agencies than “commercial success trumping safety.”  We see that happening routinely in vaccines, especially the HPV vaccine that is devastating young girls who must take a course of  three toxic-laden injections, with boosters later on in life.

Remember the Swine flu pandemic of 2009? Here’s part of what may have been the propelling issue to get it ‘mainstreamed’ globally, according to F. Willliam Engdahl:

The man with the nickname “Dr Flu”, Professor Albert Osterhaus, of the Erasmus University in Rotterdam Holland has been named by Dutch media researchers as the person at the center of the worldwide Swine Flu H1N1 Influenza A 2009 pandemic hysteria. Not only is Osterhaus the connecting person in an international network that has been described as the Pharma Mafia, he is THE key advisor to WHO on influenza and is intimately positioned to personally profit from the billions of euros in vaccines allegedly aimed at H1N1. [3]

Globally, healthcare consumers are waking up to the fact that they may have been had by media spin and Big Pharma’s post-marketing disasters for pharmaceutical drugs.  Public Citizen, a U.S. watchdog group, seems to be concerned about how the public is kept in the dark about issues.

There is no issue that the public has been kept in the dark about more than vaccines, the ‘sacred cash cow’ of modern pharmacology—not medicine. If doctors really knew what was in those vials, they’d stop acquiescing and, instead of ‘divorcing’ families that want vaccine exemptions from their medical practices, they would turn down Big Pharma’s commissions they get for vaccinations and live up to the Hippocratic oath they took.

    That last paragraph says it all, especially he last eight words “live up to the Hippocratic oath they took” … first do no harm.  Whatever happened to that?  Thank you so much for what you do and the passion you have for it!

    Yes, the problem is that when its hip or breast replacement you are dealing with adults who damn soon tell you that the medical system is NULL.

    With a one day baby given mercury vaccines, sadly often the mom does not know of the injection as she is still in recovery after the birth.

    Baby can do nothing except SCREAM. 

    Look at Brain Enlargement for the 0 to 4 month child by Nordahl and team 2011 December  and autism disorder with regression and you will see mysterious head expansion AFTER vaccines measured with tape measure and clock give the impression that encephalitis is being CONVENIENTLY missed after vaccines. 3 years on; gosh, golly, blimey autism! Why is that!

    Of course in Pub Med you cant say too much about VACCINES.

    Look left bottom Page 20199

    This calls into question association of PEDIATRIC VACCINATION.

    You bet it does!

    “If doctors really knew what was in those vials” Yes, some doctors do know what’s in the vials and they keep on doing their JOB. Why? because they have a mortgage to pay and families to feed. They are just to afraid of NOT knowing how they can earn a living. The education process in becoming a doctor also includes being mindcontrol through extreme work loads with thousands of working hours and little sleep. When finally a doctor graduates his mindset is to do harm blindly because they must do as they are told by having all their patients follow the CDC’s vaccination schedule. Its all about the money.

    Mums are told that the first injection is k12 to stop blood clots…..

    Excellent and thought provoking article.

    This is disappointing and worrying:
    “Recent Changes may render Hippocratic Oath harmful to patients, critic warns”.

    Wesley Smith, a senior fellow with the Discovery Insitute, says an oath taken by new doctors for centuries is being watered down to allow for more open interpretation”.

    These following words jumped out from the page:
    “Equally disturbing, the Discovery Institute spokesman observes, is the fact that the clause forbidding a doctor to kill a patient has also been removed”.

    Apparently there’s been a mix up in the posting of the web site URL for Part 1 on Shaken Baby Syndrome and Bone Density Testing published at IMCV Feb. 5.  Here’s the correct link.

    Self regulation = no-one suffers from an adverse reaction with our products!

    When will the world “get it” that vaccines are not the answer.  Fifty years from now, will our immune system even exist? Or do we take an “immune system vaccine?”

    The Vit K shot is synthetic Vit K, I think this is refering to the Hep B.
    A friend just had a forcep delivery and then they gave the baby the hep b shot. The baby screamed for 2 days and the obstetrician  told them it was just the result of the forcep delivery. Her head swelling was the result of the forcep delivery? Been in the wise: I would like to know the truth.

    Great article. You have a real gift for shining light on what should be obvious but somehow isn’t.  I would sure want you in my corner in a ‘street fight’.

    Shaken baby syndrome or Brittle bone syndrome is due to low vitamin D, which could also be the cause of all the ADD, autism etc.  See vitamindcouncil.org

  • Haven’t they taken thimerosol out of most of the vaccines?  I know there’s still other dangers and we are holding out on any vaccinations until our baby is at least 2 when the brain is 80% developed and then spacing the vaccines out to allow the brain to recover.
    My pediatrician said at the last visit that the autism rates have continued to increase in the UK even though vaccinations have decreased.  I’m not sure about this or if it’s skewed or is due to other factors or errors, etc.  Has anyone looked into this and can save me some time researching it?  Thanks.

    Thimerosal is still used in vaccines [multi vial, in particular] and you can find proof of Thimerosal in vaccines on the CDC’s web page that lists how much vaccine makers pay to the vaccine fund for each vaccine sold.  No. 6, if I remember correctly, gives the $ due on each vaccine containing Thimerosal that vaccine makers have to pay to the fund that compensates Vaccine-Court-matsters-approved vaccine damaged victims, which now totals over Two Billion Dollars ($2,000,000,000.00).
    Regarding autism rates increasing and vaccinations decreasing, I’d venture to say that the ASD increase may and can be the result of residual effects from prior vaccinations containing neurotoxins doing there damage after parents stopped getting children vaccinated. Neurotoxins have a cumulative effect in the body and small children’s bodies cannot detoxify heavy metals, especially mercury (Hg) in the case of autistics.  Besides mercury there is aluminum, which is neurotoxic and some vaccines contain hundreds of micrograms of any of four aluminum compounds.  Check out the CDC’s PinkBook pages for the four aluminum compounds that are found in children’s vaccines listed.

  • Although vitamin D is very important, I think the issue was and has been largely moreso in regard to deficiency of vitamin C. Dr. Archie Kalokerinos information is where you can find some of the specifics.


    And, furthermore, it is possible in experimental animals to develop these bone changes in the fetus before birth while in the uterus. They look like trauma-induced fractures but are actually induced by a deficiency of Vitamin C which can affect areas in bone where rapid growth is occurring. There is a breakdown in bone structure. So, these are very important issues. They need to be seriously considered. Otherwise, the suffering is going to continue.

    Excellent article as always by Cathrine F.Vaccine ingredients including presence of mercury can be found in CDC’s:“Vaccine Excipient and Media Summary, part 2. Excipients Included in US vaccines, by Vaccine”.(I am sorry that I can’t manage to post it as a link as I can only see it as an Adobe Reader file).
    The footnote states:*Where “thimerosal” is marked with an asterisk (*) it indicates that the product should be considered equivalent to thimerosal-free products. This vaccine may contain trace amounts (<0.3 mcg) of mercury left after post-production thimerosal removal, but these amounts have no biological effect. JAMA 1999;282(18) and JAMA 2000;283(16)

    (The statement by CDC that less than 0.3 mcg of mercury has no biological effect is incorrect).

    Regarding Cathrine's statement in the comment section "Thimerosal is still used in vaccines [multi vial, in particular]", I have gone into more detail:All multidose injections (contain several doses in the same container), must contain a preservative, this is often thimerosal/mercury.
    To have preservative properties it must be present in a strength of at least 0.01% in the final product. (Equivalent to 50 microgram thimerosal per 0.5ml dose, or 25 microgram mercury).
     The reason why multidose preparations contain preservatives is to prevent contamination from the surroundings in connection with withdrawal of several doses.
     Single dose injections do not normally require preservatives. They are discarded after the one dose is withdrawn.
    During the manufacturing processes mercury may be used to prevent microbial contamination, even though it will not be present IN PRESERVATIVE STRENGTH in the end product. (This is the case with many single dose injections).
    The intention is to remove the mercury, but because it is difficult and expensive to remove absolutely all, up to 0.3 microgram per 0.5 ml dose is permitted to remain.
    This is termed “trace” mercury and is not sufficient to have preservative properties because it is not present in sufficient strength.
    It is often misleading due to the fact that injections may be termed “preservative free” because they do not contain mercury in a high enough concentration to have preservative properties – but they may nevertheless contain traces of mercury!"

    Thank YOU for enhancing my article with the ‘homework’ you did on verifying what I said appears about mercury in vaccines, especially from the CDC’s Pink Book.  I wish everyone were as diligent as you.  Good job, and thanks again.
