Back in May 20, 2003, after a three year investigation into paediatric vaccine safety, initiated in the US House Committee on Government Reform, the "Mercury in Medicine Report," was placed on the Congressional record.
"Thimerosal used as a preservative in vaccines is likely related to the autism epidemic," the report concluded.
"This epidemic in all probability may have been prevented or curtailed had the FDA not been asleep at the switch regarding the lack of safety data regarding injected thimerosal and the sharp rise of infant exposure to this known neurotoxin," the Committee advised.
"The FDA and the CDC (Centre for Disease Control) failed in their duty to be vigilant as new vaccines containing thimerosal were approved and added to the immunization schedule," the report pointed out.
"At the same time that the incidence of autism was growing," the Committee said, "the number of childhood vaccines containing thimerosal was growing, increasing the amount of ethylmercury to which infants were exposed threefold."
Vaccine makers and conflicted public health officials are always claiming that studies show vaccines did not cause the autism epidemic. In a February 24, 2009 Huffington Post article, Robert F Kennedy, Jr, pointed out "that for sixty years the tobacco industry successfully defended a product that was killing one out of every five of its customers against thousands of legal actions brought by its victims and their families."
"Big tobacco prevailed for six decades," he said, "even without the help of supportive government agencies deliberately suppressing real science and research."
"In that sense vaccine victims must leap a much higher hurdle," he added.
People who have used a mobile phone for more than 10 years face a ‘significantly increased risk’ of developing brain tumours such as glioma, says the Interphone study, which reviewed the evidence from 13 countries, involving around 12,800 people. It will publish its conclusions later this year following a delay of four years.
Study head Dr Elisabeth Cardis said the report will include a “public health warning” about mobile phone usage, especially among children. France has been one of the first countries to act, and has banned the use of mobile phones in primary schools. The UK has merely cautioned about the overuse of the phones by children and adolescents.
The Interphone researchers said that six of the eight studies they reviewed found that mobile phone usage increased the risk of glioma by up to 39 per cent, while the risk of acoustic neuroma, a benign tumour between the ear and the brain, increased nearly four times among people who had used a mobile phone for more than 10 years.
Despite its findings, some critics believe the Interphone study has played down the real risks by including people who use a mobile phone only infrequently, and by excluding children altogether. Critics point out that the study was partly funded by the mobile phone industry, whose own research has invariably failed to find any link between its products and brain tumours.

I could have gone further and said
NO SANE PERSON WHO HAS SEEN THE PRESENTATION BELOW WOULD EVER WANT TO HAVE THE JAB
Take a look at
Oh, and as a British taxpayer, I’d like a speedy investigation to identify those responsible for contracting to spend so much of the taxpayers’ money on something so useless and dangerous, and speedy firing of said persons from whatever official posts they hold. Once that has been done, come back to me and I will recommend a replacement WITH SOME COMMONSENSE who will spend the Nation’s health money more wisely and implement a sound health education programme in our schools so that our youngsters grow up knowing what to do to stay healthy rather than abdicating responsibility to the Government, the medical profession and their parents.

The ratio of manager-to-medic in the NHS is one-to-one. That is to say, out of its 1.3m employees (more than the population of some EU member states) just 675,000 are professionally qualified clinical staff. The rest are on the pen pushing/managerial/administrative side of the divide. The average NHS worker takes two weeks off sick every year, in addition to six weeks holiday.
[The breakdown is available at http://www.ic.nhs.uk/webfiles/publications/nhsstaff2006/NHS%20Staff%20leaflet.pdf]
The UK newspapers have been reporting deaths from swine flu, and “alternative sources” on the internet have been predicting deaths and horrifying side effects from taking the vaccines for it (see later). So what should one do?
If the HPV (cervical cancer) immunisation programme is anything to go by, any deaths/side effects from swine flu vaccine even on the same day will be explained away by saying the connection can’t be proved. Or the medical profession will say the equivalent of “It was the patient’s fault “ by alleging that the patient was ultra-sensitive to the vaccine due to a pre-existing medical problem. In which case most of us would say, “Why then wasn’t the patient asked before getting the jab if he/she had any known medical problems eg asthma and shouldn’t therefore have been jabbed?” Such questioning just isn’t happening. The authorities seem to want blanket immunisation (a misnomer in itself) and no questions asked.
Despite the fact that we’re told that seasonal flu in the UK causes far more deaths a year (around 12,000) regardless of vaccination, seasonal flu was never called a pandemic by the World Health Organisation. So, many have concluded that this “pandemic” is just a well orchestrated plan to make millions selling vaccines. And the situation isn’t helped by the information out there that indicates it is quite likely that the swine flu was, accidentally or otherwise, first created in a laboratory rather than the wild.
The tragedy is that out of a population of 61 million so few devote the time to investigate whether there is any other way they could avoid contracting flu or at least minimize their symptoms if they do.
The biggest part of the reason that most of our population don’t do that is because those in positions of influence or power – in Government, the Medical Profession, or the scientific community and some journalists – hide the Truth from us, or lie about the facts. They do it daily to brainwash the great British Public by repetition into having vaccines unnecessarily which themselves can cause short term or long term damage in some people. And they assert that these vaccines are safe and effective without concrete proof of that.
The Safe Alternatives
The authorities don’t remind us that historically homeopathy has had a far better success record at treating patients in flu epidemics than conventional medicine. They don’t tell us that supplementing with vitamins C & D & E while a flu epidemic is on, and having a daily hot drink with a couple of slices of fresh ginger in it, or a tablespoon of organic cider vinegar, a teaspoon of Black Treacle and a couple of shakes of cayenne pepper, will help boost the immune system. They don’t say that use of other natural immune system improvers or bacteria killers like Olive Leaf Extract, turmeric, garlic, Manuka honey, Echinacea tincture & colloidal silver could help keep flu at bay or shorten the symptoms we might get if we caught it. A knowledge of how to use the above could significantly reduce the risk of catching, or symptoms of, swine or seasonal flu and encourage everyone to look after their own health. As a beneficial side effect the huge national cost of the vaccines and the £7.51 (seasonal flu) and £5.25 (swine flu) per jab that the medical profession get from the NHS would annually be saved.
If in addition we each took a homeopathic anti-flu prophylactic (see below), and resolved to get ourselves in better shape over the winter with some brisk walking exercise for those who can manage this, and washed our hands more frequently, we would
- be far less likely to catch any flu at all
- be far more likely to recover quicker, if we did catch flu
- avoid any possibility of any damaging side effects of flu vaccination
A Government spokesman did get around to telling us to clean our hands. But why don’t they tell us the rest of The Truth? Can’t they take the time to google the internet and check the facts rather than rely on those whose advice is so biased? Why don’t they tell the public that such limited tests as there have been on swine flu vaccines have been hurried, don’t guarantee that you won’t get swine flu, and that this and other flu vaccines, or the ingredients in them like thimerosal (mercury based preservative linked with autism & Guillain Barre syndrome), squalene, & formaldehyde, may end up giving you paralysis or other horrific neurological & auto-immune disorders or cancers years down the track, like the Gulf War vaccines did? Or that our law has been changed so that you won’t be able to sue the manufacturers for any damage from their vaccines, and very likely that the Government won’t accept any liability either?
The scientific community knows that viruses like the swine flu often mutate quickly which means that any swine flu vaccine is unlikely to confer immunity.
Homeopathic Flu Therapy is on the other hand not affected by Viral Mutations.
Homeopathy does not depend on one drug or feature particular drugs for curing any type of flu. Homeopathy is a non allopathic healing method that was once the mainstream medicine of the 19th century. Because different remedies and combinations and strengths are prescribed according to exact symptomatic readings, homeopaths can successfully adapt treatments to handle viral mutations. Homeopathy was enjoyed by many until certain moneyed interests almost pushed it out of existence. Now there is somewhat of a resurgence of its use and what the Government and some doctors are reluctant to publicise is that every patient has a right under the founding Charter of the NHS to homeopathic treatment.
If you go to the Helios website (one of the homeopathics suppliers) at http://www.helios.co.uk/swine_flu.html you’ll find suggestions for the names of homeopathic remedies that might help. Or you can visit your local homeopath.
I and my family are taking, apart from the natural remedies mentioned above, a combination homeopathic remedy as a prophylactic against any flu including swine flu this winter. It comprises the remedies Anas Barb Co, Eupatorium Perf, Gelsemium, Aconite, & Influenzinum nosodes mix. If after that we get the sniffles or a fever, we will safely treat whatever symptoms come up with our choice of homeopathics and herbs. Our bottom line is nobody has the right to tell us that we have to inject foreign substances into our bodies, especially one about which our neurologists have been "confidentially" briefed to be on the lookout for Guillain Barre syndrome.
Lastly, if you really want to know why you should rightfully be suspicious of vaccines, read Jane Bryant’s speech about her vaccine damaged son, or Janine Roberts’ book Fear of the Invisible ISBN 978-0-9559177-2-1. The information there will rock you on your heels. As explained above, there is a kinder, effective alternative, and it is high time our authorities promoted it.
 Over 100 as of 16th October 09
 Chief Medical Officer's publication 'Explaining Pandemic Flu' (1 March 2005): "Ordinary flu occurs every year during the winter months in the UK. It affects 10-15% of the UK population, causing around 12,000 deaths every year”
 “In 2004, for example, (US) vaccine production fell behind, causing a 40 percent drop in immunization rates. Yet mortality did not rise.” See http://www.theatlantic.com/doc/200911/brownlee-h1n1
 See http://www.naturalnews.com/027258_vaccines_flu_vaccine.html
 Homeopathy had an amazingly high cure rate in the virulent 1918 Flu Epidemic. While the mortality rate of people treated with traditional medicine and drugs in the US was around 30%, those treated by homeopathic physicians had a mortality rate of 1.05%. See http://www.hpathy.com/diseases/swine-flu-symptoms-treatment.asp. A recent example in ‘07/08 in two provinces of Cuba of the homeopathic prophylactic treatment of 2.5 million people against the annual epidemic of leptospirosis which allopathic vaccinations had failed to contain (symptoms are fever, kidney/liver damage, meningitis) saw the annual death rate reduced to zero, and infections down to 10 a month from several thousand. Similarly the annual treatment bill was reduced from $3 million under conventional medicine to just $200,000 under homeopathics. http://homeopathyresource.wordpress.com/2009/01/01/successful-use-of-homeopathy-in-over-5-million-people-reported-from-cuba/

October 10 2009 |
By Dr. Mercola
As I write this I am in Washington DC for the International Vaccine Conference and I just did a 12 hour amazing tour of the Capitol that I will describe later, along with pictures that I will post on Facebook. So politics and patriotism is fresh in my mind.
When President Obama took office, many Americans welcomed what was supposed to be an era of much needed change not only for the economy but also for the food industry and U.S. health care system.
Time magazine put it quite well when they described current farm policy as "a welfare program for the megafarms that use the most fuel, water and pesticides; emit the most greenhouse gases; grow the most fattening crops; hire the most illegals; and depopulate rural America."
And as has been recently disclosed by the Government Accountability Office (GAO), between 2003 and 2006, millionaire farmers received $49 million in crop subsidies, even though they earned more than the $2.5 million cutoff for such subsidies. In a speech given at the end of 2008, President Obama stated that this was a prime example of the kind of waste he intends to end when he takes office.
Meanwhile, American medical care is the most expensive in the world. The United States spends more than twice as much on each person for health care as most other industrialized countries. And yet it has fallen to last place among those countries in preventing avoidable deaths through use of timely and effective medical care.
That the system is fatally flawed and in need of a radical overhaul is self-evident.
In fact, according to a 2008 report published in the New England Journal of Medicine, 90 percent of Americans believe our medical system should be “completely rebuilt” or that “fundamental changes” are required.
And many are looking toward the Obama Administration to carry out these fundamental changes -- changes that appear, on the surface at least, to be in the works.
But while health care reform is finally on the table, and an organic farm has, for the first time, been planted on the White House lawn, there are an unsettling number of foxes being appointed to guard the U.S. health care and food industry hen houses … foxes that have entirely too many connections to Monsanto, the chemical manufacturer turned agricultural giant that is slowly gaining control over the world’s population, one seed at a time.
The New Secretary of Agriculture is a Fan of Factory Farms, GM Crops and More
Former Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack is now the Secretary of Agriculture, an appointment that took place despite massive public outcry. What was needed for an effective Secretary of Agriculture was someone who would develop and implement a plan that promotes family-scale farming and a safe and nutritious food system with a sustainable and organic vision.
What we got was yet another politician who’s already made room in his bed for the industry lobby. As the Organic Consumers Association (OCA) points out:
Vilsack has been a strong supporter of genetically engineered crops, including bio-pharmaceutical corn
The biggest biotechnology industry group, the Biotechnology Industry Organization, named Vilsack Governor of the Year. He was also the founder and former chair of the Governor’s Biotechnology Partnership.
When Vilsack created the Iowa Values Fund, his first poster child of economic development potential was Trans Ova and their pursuit of cloning dairy cows.
The undemocratic and highly unpopular 2005 seed pre-emption bill was Vilsack’s brainchild. The law strips local government’s right to regulated genetically engineered seed (including where GE can be grown, maintaining GE-free buffers or banning pharma corn locally)
Vilsack is an ardent supporter of corn and soy-based biofuels, which use as much or more fossil fuel energy to produce them as they generate, while driving up world food prices and literally starving the poor.
Overall, Vilsack’s record is one of aiding and abetting Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) or factory farms and promoting animal cloning.
You may also be interested to know that Vilsack is widely regarded as a shill for biotech giants like Monsanto (he even reportedly often travels in Monsanto’s jet)!
The New Senior Advisor for the FDA is a Former Monsanto VP!
Michael Taylor, a former vice president of public policy and chief lobbyist at Monsanto Company, is the new senior advisor for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Who is Michael Taylor? He is the person who “oversaw the creation of GMO policy,” according to Jeffrey Smith, the leading spokesperson on the dangers of GM foods. Smith continues:
“If GMOs are indeed responsible for massive sickness and death, then the individual who oversaw the FDA policy that facilitated their introduction holds a uniquely infamous role in human history. That person is Michael Taylor. He had been Monsanto's attorney before becoming policy chief at the FDA. Soon after, he became Monsanto's vice president and chief lobbyist.”
The FDA policy being referred to is the 1992 GMO policy, which stated:
"The agency is not aware of any information showing that foods derived by these new methods [genetic engineering] differ from other foods in any meaningful or uniform way."
In reality, there was major concern among FDA scientists that GM foods were in fact different than natural foods, and that their creation could prompt unknown and unpredictable health problems.
Along with being a key player in the initial pushing of GM foods onto Americans’ plates (without any required safety studies), Taylor also oversaw the policy regarding Monsanto’s genetically engineered bovine growth hormone (rbGH/rbST).
This growth hormone, which has been banned in Canada, Europe, Japan, Australia and New Zealand because of cancer risks and other health concerns, was approved in the United States while Taylor was in charge at the FDA. Smith writes:
“Taylor also determined that milk from injected cows did not require any special labeling. And as a gift to his future employer Monsanto, he wrote a white paper suggesting that if companies ever had the audacity to label their products as not using rbGH, they should also include a disclaimer stating that according to the FDA, there is no difference between milk from treated and untreated cows.”
Taylor’s white paper, which again was untrue as even FDA scientists acknowledged differences in the rbGH milk, allowed Monsanto to sue dairies that labeled their products rbGH-free.
Dennis Wolff, Another Monsanto “Yes Man,” May be the Next Under-Secretary of Agriculture for Food Safety
In another ironic turn of events, it’s rumored that Pennsylvania Agriculture Secretary Dennis Wolff may be appointed the new Under-Secretary of Agriculture for Food Safety -- the top food safety post at the USDA.
Wolff declared that labeling products rbGH-free was against the law, and ordered all such labels to be removed from Pennsylvania. Fortunately, due to consumer demand Pennsylvania's Governor Ed Rendell stepped in and stopped the ban on rbGH-free labels (although he did require such claims to include Taylor’s FDA disclaimer that there is no difference between milk from treated and untreated cows).
As Jeffrey Smith explains:
“Rumor has it that the reason why Pennsylvania's governor is supporting Wolff's appointment is to get him out of the state -- after he "screwed up so badly" with the rbGH decision. Oh great, governor. Thanks.”
Not only did Dennis Wolff attempt to ban rbGH-free labels, but OCA points out that he has “also worked to deprive communities the right to ban toxic sewage sludge, factory farms, and GMOs.”
Monsanto’s Long-Reaching Grasp on the U.S. Government
Clearly, Monsanto -- the world leader in genetic modification of seeds -- has worked its way into varying high-level positions in the U.S. government. There are other less noticeable connections too, such as Sharon Long, a former member of Monsanto’s board of directors who was part of Obama’s scientific advisory team during the election/campaign.
Monsanto is a very dark cloud hanging over the future of health and food safety in the United States. This powerful entity has already managed so many reprehensible acts it boggles the mind, including:
Leading the world into a new age of potentially hazardous genetic modification of seeds.
Patenting not only their own GMO seeds, but also a huge number of crop seeds, patenting life forms for the first time -- without a vote of the people or Congress.
Not allowing farmers to save their seeds to replant the next year -- a practice that has been done for generations. Instead, they aggressively seek out and sue farmers they suspect of doing so.
Suing farmers who have not been able to prevent the inevitable drift of Monsanto’s GE pollen or seed onto their land for patent infringement!
Producing two of the most toxic substances ever known -- polychlorinated biphenyls, known as PCBs, and dioxin (Agent Orange).
Perhaps their biggest assault to your food supply already is what’s known as terminator technology. These are seeds that have been genetically modified to “self-destruct.” In other words, the seeds (and the forthcoming crops) are sterile, which means farmers must buy them again each year.
The implications that terminator seeds could have on the world’s food supply are disastrous: the traits from genetically engineered crops can get passed on to other crops. Once the terminator seeds are released into a region, the trait of seed sterility could be passed to other non-genetically-engineered crops, making most or all of the seeds in the region sterile.
If allowed to continue, every farmer in the world could come to rely on Monsanto for their seed supply!
Thursday, 8 October 2009
(NaturalNews) One of the key researchers involved in the clinical trials for both Gardasil and Cevarix cervical cancer vaccines has gone public with warnings about their safety and effectiveness. This highly unusual warning against these vaccines by one of Big Pharma's own researchers surfaced in an exclusive interview with the Sunday Express in the UK over the last few days. There, Dr. Diane Harper openly admitted the vaccine doesn't even prevent cervical cancer, stating, "[The vaccine] will not decrease cervical cancer rates at all."
This is astonishing news. The whole push behind the cervical cancer vaccines is based on the belief that they prevent cervical cancer. That belief, it turns out, is a myth.
Dr. Harper also warned that the cervical cancer vaccine was being "over-marketed" and that parents should be warned about the possible risk of severe side effects from the vaccine. She even concluded that the vaccine itself is more dangerous than the cervical cancer it claims to prevent!
Hysteria over genital warts?
In a New York Times article published last year, Dr. Harper spoke about the fear-based marketing of Gardasil by Merck:
"'Merck lobbied every opinion leader, women's group, medical society, politicians, and went directly to the people -- it created a sense of panic that says you have to have this vaccine now..."
This behavior by drug companies -- using fear tactics to promote a particular disease in order to sell the "treatment" -- is called disease mongering. Most of the pharmaceutical profits generated today are based on precisely this tactic: Spread the fear, then sell the treatment. Read more about disease mongering here: http://www.naturalnews.com/
Why is disease mongering so important to the profits of the drug companies? They figured out many years ago that selling drugs only to those people who are sick was a very limited income opportunity. To rake in the real profits, they needed to devise a way to sell drugs to healthy people (i.e. people who don't need them). That's what cervical cancer vaccines really are: A scheme to sell vaccines to people who aren't suffering from any disease at all.
That one of the industry's own researchers is willing to speak out against this is not just highly unusual; it's also highly courageous. It makes you wonder: Who, exactly, is this Dr. Harper?
Dr. Diane Harper
Dr. Harper is a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She studied additional courses at Stanford and received her medical degree from the University of Kansas. She was a key researcher in both Gardasil and Cervarix vaccines, and she's one of the most experienced researchers in the world on HPV-related diseases. She's done work for both Merck and GlaxoSmithKline.
Dr. Harper's warnings about cervical cancer vaccines are especially relevant considering her expertise in the cost/benefit analysis of vaccines. Her conclusion is that cervical cancer vaccines aren't worth the risks, nor are they worth all the effort being put into hyping them to the public. "This may not be the best use of our resources at this time," she said in a Washington Post article.
So why do cervical cancer vaccines continue to be pushed by doctors and health authorities across the US, UK and other first-world nations? Because Big Pharma is the great corporate puppeteer that's pulling the strings of legislators. With enough money and lobbyists, you can always overcome scientific thinking with fear-based marketing and under-the-table deal-making. Science-based medicine has no place in a world where disease is big business.
There's a ridiculous amount of money to be made by pushing vaccines onto people who don't need them. If I had ten bucks for every teenage girl that's been injected with a cervical cancer vaccine, I'd be... well... GlaxoSmithKline.

Postscript: What happens to those who spill the beans even if every word they utter is true? That's right. They get the sack, and lies about them are published in the media and professional circles to make life as difficult as possible for them, and to discourage them from ever daring again to raise their head above the parapet. But if every individual who felt that Dr Harper had helped them by this warning sent her a £1 that would doubtless help to redress the balance!
