Pigs, Birds And Seals: The Next Great Pandemic
August 6, 2012 by Bob Livingston
Flu vaccines are a boondoggle on the public and a treasure trove for Big Pharma. But worse than a boondoggle, vaccines in general are dangers to human health. Pharmaceutical researchers, doctors, scientists and world health experts know this — and have for years. But they lie about the vaccines’ efficacy and cover up their side effects.
Researcher Lucija Tomljenovic, Ph.D., has summarized transcripts of meetings of the UK Department of Health (DH) and the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation [British spelling] (JCVI). Her report shows that for more than 30 years the JCVI has knowingly withheld from the public and healthcare practitioners critical data that showed vaccines caused severe adverse reactions and health dangers to patients. This was done to achieve satisfactory “herd immunity” vaccination rates.
According to the report, JCVI had substantial documentation as early as 1981 that associated the measles vaccine with serious adverse reactions, including death and long-term adverse neurological outcomes. The adverse reactions included encephalitis, encephalopathy or sudden death shortly after vaccine had been administered.
In 1981, JCVI studied reports of 60 patients who were affected between 1970 and 1981, with eight deaths and 16 with permanent disabilities. By 1983, the JCVI had reports of 66 more adverse reactions (including some that caused severe handicaps) from vaccines administered between January 1982 and April 1983. In 1986, with the committee continuing to discuss known measles vaccine side effects: “The Committee agreed to a suggestion from the Chairman that in the future it would accept reports on adverse reactions as ‘for information only’ [their emphasis-added quotation marks].”
In other words, they were finished with this line of discussion, despite learning in that meeting about other reactions from the vaccine included sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), convulsions and anaphylaxis.
At a later 1986 meeting of a JCVI subcommittee, there was a discussion about a study on adverse reactions to two measles vaccines: Rimevax and Attenuvax. The subcommittee members noted that:
…results showed that 70 per cent of children were well after receiving Attenuvax and 61 per cent after receiving Rimevax. If children with mild general reactions were added to those who were apparently well then the numbers associated with Attenuvax were 85 per cent and those with Rimevax 80 per cent.
So even with the results skewed, there was still as much as a one-in-five chance (depending upon the vaccine) of a child suffering from an adverse reaction after having a measles vaccine administered. The committee agreed the study no longer needed to be continued and concluded its discussion on the topic by attributing some of the adverse reactions not to the vaccines themselves, but to “temper tantrums.”
In discussing the DPT vaccine (diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus), the same committee noted 90 registered adverse reactions that included six patients with convulsions, one with an abnormal fever, one with cerebral irritability and two cases of SIDS. In the SIDS cases, a 3-month-old boy died 18 hours after vaccination, and 3-month-old girl died three days after vaccination. Concerned about adverse publicity from such deaths and the litigation that had begun over adverse vaccine reactions, the committee instructed its members to lie and obfuscate whenever questions arose about any links between death or brain damage and DPT vaccines.
By 1989, transcripts show the committee was aware of an investigation by the National Institute for Biological Standards and Control (NIBSC) that unequivocally established a link between the mumps component of the MMR vaccine (the Urabe-9 strain) and cases of vaccine-induced meningitis/encephalitis. In response to this, the JCVI appeared to have actively engaged in skewing and censoring data available to the public, continued to use the Urabe-9 containing MMR vaccines and made intensive efforts to reassure both the public and the authorities of the safety of all MMR vaccines.
In discussing the link at a subsequent meeting, the committee noted there were 10 definite cases of meningitis/encephalitis resulting from the vaccines and that patients had been vaccinated at different times and from different batches. But committee members decided there would be no change in its recommendations or the supply of MMR vaccine.
In 1989, Canadian authorities suspended the use of the MMR vaccine containing Urabe-9 over health concerns. But the JCVI ignored or downplayed Canada’s concerns, as well as information that the overall risk of complication in the UK was one per 10,000 immunized children, but in Nottingham there was one complication per 4,000 immunized children.
In the United States in 2011, the Institute of Medicine issued a report that linked MMR vaccines to cases of measles, febrile seizures, anaphylactic shock and other potentially fatal side effects. It also admitted that other vaccines are linked to a host of side effects, including skin lesions, difficulty breathing and virus infections.
The mainstream media reporting on the IoM’s findings concluded the report found few side effects to vaccines, which is the complete opposite of what the report stated.
Last week, there was a report in Britain’s Daily Mail headlined “Forget bird flu—seal flu could prove more deadly to humans” based on a report by the American Society for Microbiology. During the nonexistent but highly trumpeted swine flu scare, the Daily Mail consistently ran stories about the “deadly,” “highly contagious” and “dangerous” swine flu pandemic, encouraging Brits to line up for their shots.
With both swine flu and the bird flu failing to produce the requisite panic to drive the world’s population headlong into the arms of Big Pharma for salvation, now the experts have discovered a new bird-mammal strain that “has adaptations to living in mammals and has mutations that are known to make flu viruses more transmissible and cause more severe disease.”
Prior to this summer, the death toll of the 2009 “swine flu pandemic” stood at about 18,500, according to the World Health Organization. But in June, that number suddenly skyrocketed to between 284,000 and 545,400, according to an international team of researchers. How those 265,500 to 526,500 dead people were overlooked by their families for three years wasn’t explained.
The goals for inflating the numbers, however, were explained quite well.
“The elevated toll underlined the need for better planning and vaccine distribution, said a team of epidemiologists and physicians who made a statistical model based on population and infection estimates to present what they believe is a more accurate picture of the pandemic’s reach,” the article stated.
And who benefits from “better planning and vaccine distribution?” Big Pharma, which not only made billions of dollars from governments for the production of the vaccines, but also had a ready market for Roche’s newest invention: Tamiflu.
Conveniently overlooked – again — are the consequences of the swine flu vaccine: a 1,700 percent increase in narcolepsy among children and teenagers under 17, hallucinations, paralyzing physical collapses and Guillain-Barré syndrome. Of course, you don’t hear about Tamiflu’s side effects either.
Also conveniently overlooked by the “medical experts” are the benefits that high doses vitamin D3 provide in promoting optimal health. Vitamin D influences dozens of conditions in addition to the flu — whether from birds, pigs, seals or something else — including cancer, heart disease, hypertension, obesity, diabetes types I and II, cold and flu, aging signs, osteoporosis, seizures, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, schizophrenia, inflammation, inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, infertility, depression, and asthma.
The Polio Vaccine Myth
Anytime I write something critical of vaccines, there comes an avalanche of comments citing the polio vaccine as proof positive that vaccines work. That is pure argle-bargle.
Polio’s rise in the United States coincided with an increased use of pesticides in the 1950s, many of which were byproducts of chemical weapons manufactured during World War II. These pesticides were found to increase susceptibility to viral infections, studies showed. Exposure to pesticides also came through milk, which was heavily contaminated with pesticides — including DDT — from crops being dusted with government-approved pesticides. Much of the milk had to be destroyed, according to a U.S. Senate report.
Polio was transmitted through contaminated milk, as was tuberculosis, typhoid fever, scarlet fever, septic sore throat, diphtheria and infantile diarrhea.
Patients undergoing tonsillectomy surgery had a greater chance of contracting the worst kind of polio: bulbar poliomyelitis. This is perhaps related to the milk contamination, as tonsillectomy surgery patients were given ice cream to eat.
The pharmaceutical companies — which benefitted financially from the polio outbreak — funded the writings on the history of polio and its treatment. As such, the pharmaceutical companies were presented in the best possible light. Americans were not told about the many people who developed paralysis after being vaccinated against polio. Nor were they told about David Bodian, M.D., Ph.D., from the Poliomyelitis Laboratory at Johns Hopkins University. Bodian told the International Poliomyelitis Conference in 1954 — the year before the polio vaccine was introduced — injections and other vaccines, such as the DTP vaccine, “may be causing polio.”
In 1955, when the Jonas Salk polio vaccine was introduced, polio was considered the most serious post-war public health problem. In 1956, six New England States reported sharp increases in polio rates, from more than double in Vermont to 645 percent in Massachusetts, despite — or rather because of — the polio vaccine program. Idaho and Utah saw such an increase in polio cases and deaths they halted the vaccine program.
In Congressional testimony in 1962, Bernard Greenberg, Ph.D., head of the Biostatistics Department at North Carolina University, said there were sharp increases in polio rates from 1957-1959 and that the Public Health Service had conducted a whitewash to suppress this knowledge.
In 1977, even Salk admitted that mass inoculations caused most polio cases since 1971. Salk was, in fact, a medical criminal who used Federal funds to conduct medical experiments on helpless patients at a Michigan insane asylum.
