“Majorities are never a proof of the truth.” – Dr Walter Hadween “Whoever pays the piper, calls the tune.” – Ancient Proverb
“When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser.” – Socrates “Neither will I administer a poison to anybody when asked to do so, nor will I suggest such a course.” – Excerpt from the Hippocratic Oath, which forbids physicians from administering poisons to patients.
“A recent study by the world-renowned immunologist Dr. H. Hugh Fudenberg found that adults vaccinated yearly (in the 1980s and 1990s) for five years in a row with the flu vaccine had a 10-fold increased risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. He attributes this to the mercury and aluminum in the vaccine. Interestingly, both of these metals have been shown to activate microglia and increase excitotoxicity in the brain.” - Russell Blaylock, MD
“Industry-controlled ‘science’ is not really science but a smokescreen to pave the way for products that may be harmful - but what do they care as long as they profit? There are many great scientists but there are also some who are willing to be hired to ‘prove’ that something doesn't cause cancer, or that something is ‘safe’. You cannot trust the EPA, the FDA, or industry science.” – Blogger on Mercola.com 8/16/16
“Corporations should not be involved in any aspect of the democratic process. They should not be involved in education at any level. Corporations should not be involved in health care. Corporations should not be involved in the administration of social services. Corporations should not be involved in the administration of justice. WHY? Because they are incapable of understanding and conforming to higher human aspirations and needs. Better to leave these areas to government and to non-profit organizations, both of which are administered by humans in the human interest…The corporation is sociopathic in its disregard for human goals and values; in fact its behavior fits the World Health Organization’s criteria for defining the psychopath.” – Wade Rowland, author of Greed, Inc. Why Corporations Rule the World. (Roland’s book was written 5 years before the 2010 US Supreme Court’s Citizen’s United ruling that gave greedy, super-wealthy, sociopathic corporations the same rights as normal citizens with regard to spending unlimited amounts of money on election campaigns.)
“The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical (and vaccine) industry, not only in terms of the practice of medicine, but also in terms of teaching and research. The academic institutions of this country are allowing themselves to be the paid agents of the pharmaceutical industry. I think it’s disgraceful.” – Arnold Seymour Relman, MD (1923-2014), Harvard Professor of Medicine and former Editor-in-Chief of the New England Journal of Medicine
“If we’ve been bamboozled long enough (even in medical school), we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been “taken”. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.” - Carl Sagan, – author of “The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark”
Graph from (double-board-certified internist and nephrologist) Dr Suzanne Humphries’ book, “Dissolving Illusions” showing that the US mortality rate for measles had already declined to near zero long before the introduction of a measles vaccine (1963). The improved mortality rates were due to improved nutrition, sanitation, safer drinking water, better quarantine procedures, less over-crowding, less poverty and the availability of refrigeration – and NOT vaccines! Similar mortality and incidence charts also show that there were great decreases in the rates of diphtheria, whooping cough, scarlet fever, etc, before there were vaccines for any of them (Note: there never was a vaccine for scarlet fever)
Internet Trolls Attack Anyone Resisting the Vaccine Party Line
By Guest Columnist Marco Caceres di Iorio: Honduran Human Rights Activist and Editor of the online newspaper Honduras Weekly (1436 words) https://idsent.wordpress.com/2015/11/10/internet-trolls-attack-anyone-resisting-vaccine-party-line/ Here’s how it usually goes: You say you have some doubts about vaccine safety and all those vaccinations the government requires you to give your kids. You say you’re concerned about serious side-effects you keep reading about, and particularly potential links to autism and autoimmune disorders, and the reports of encephalitis and shock. A typical response from mainstream proponents of vaccines would proceed like this…
“Oh, you’re being silly, you don’t know the science. Look, 99.9% of all doctors and scientists will tell you that vaccines are safe and effective. The science is solid, it’s long been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt.”
Ninety-nine point nine percent. That sounds pretty convincing. Of course, it’s unclear what formula, study or survey was used to come up with that figure, so you start to do your own research, and you quickly realize there are lots of doctors and scientists, in addition to well informed parents, journalists and consumer advocates, who do not subscribe to the establishment’s mantra about vaccine safety and effectiveness. They do not believe the myth that the science is settled, and some are very vocal about their reservations or opposition to it.
The more you read, the more you start to realize that there is a growing chorus of doctors, scientists, nurses, and other health care providers who have serious questions about the current vaccine paradigm favored by the pharmaceutical industry, government agencies (such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC] and Food and Drug Administration [FDA]), medical trade groups (such as the American Academy of Pediatrics [AAP], the American Medical Association [AMA], the American Academy of Family Practice [AAFP], etc, etc, and the mainstream media (which relies on Big Pharma’s advertising income that represents 70 % of annual revenues).
Increasingly, professionals within a wide range of health care and science fields are giving interviews and writing articles and books voicing their concerns about vaccine risks, the misrepresentation of the historical role of vaccines in reducing mortality from infectious diseases, the expanding schedule and number of vaccines mandated, or even the basic mechanism of action theories behind real vaccine science.
Predictably, every time you give the name of a contrarian doctor or scientist in response to the 99.9% figure, what you tend to get referred to internet troll sites such as ‘Science-Based Medicine’ or ‘Respectful Insolence’, or the “Skeptical Raptor”.
The first two are often written by or associated with a guy named David Gorski, MD, who also goes by the alias “Orac”. Gorski is a surgical oncologist and an assistant professor of surgery at Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit, MI. The third is written by Michael Simpson, who goes by the “Skeptical Raptor”. This is how Simpson describes himself on his blog:
“I have over 25-years of experience in marketing, business development, and product development in the medical products industry, working in a variety of marketing, sales, clinical research, and product development roles with large and small medical products companies. I have also had key executive roles on both the manufacturing and distribution sides of the medical products industry.”
(Note the total absence of any claims of scientific training or knowledge about what he so aggressively criticizes.)
Should you wish to debunk someone, anyone, who dares to disagree with mainstream thinking on vaccines, all you need do is inform Orac or the Raptor, and either will gladly oblige by writing up a boorish piece, long on insult and short on science.
Their methods are painfully predictable. In one piece earlier this year, Raptor criticized a prominent immunologist who had the nerve to write an open letter on vaccine science to state legislators in California who were about to vote on a bill eliminating personal belief vaccine exemptions. The Raptor piece started out by dismissing the individual’s credentials outright. Raptor wrote:
“One of the most irritating problems I have with the antivaccination movement is their over-reliance on false authorities, where they trumpet the publications or commentary from someone who appears to have all of the credentials to be a part of the discussion on vaccines, but really doesn’t.”
In the same piece, Raptor took a backhanded swipe at a leading neuroscientist and a molecular biochemist by first acknowledging their “sterling credentials in medicine and science,” and then went on to say: “They publish nonsense research (usually filled with the weakest of epidemiology trying to show population level correlation between vaccines and adverse events) in low ranked scientific journals.”
In a crude shot at a pediatrician allowing parents in his practice to make informed, voluntary vaccine decisions for their children, Orac wrote: “If [he] weren’t such a worthless excuse for a pediatrician when it comes to promoting misinformation about vaccines, I’d almost feel sorry for him. Almost. He is, however, a perfect example of what the phrase ‘hoist with his own petard’ means.”
Orac took aim at a well-respected nephrologist, who left a successful private practice to speak out about the damage being done by doctors taking a narrow-minded, aggressive approach to vaccination of patients:
“As someone who comes from a strong basic science background, having been a chemistry major (who graduated with honors–so, there!), I think I can see [her] problem. First, she seems unduly proud of her science background, wielding it like a talisman against charges that she doesn’t know what she’s talking about (which she doesn’t). Unfortunately, as those of us in medicine know, what you did 25 or more years ago in college has little bearing on what you can or can’t understand now.
And here is Orac having a go at a top notch molecular and cellular physiologist:
“A real molecular biologist who did real research for various biotech and pharmaceutical companies, apparently competently, for 20 years, she suddenly embraced antivaccine pseudoscience, apparently based on her embrace of fundamentalist Catholicism.” “Catholicism appears to be what first led [her] to embrace her pseudoscientific hypothesis about fetal DNA in vaccines and autism, the tragic death of her child less than a month and a half ago is unlikely to do anything but cement in her mind the evils of vaccines made using fetal cell lines.”
Notice the pattern. This is only a smattering of the handiwork of these two bloggers, but you begin to get the idea.
Orac’s defensiveness, in particular, may have something to do with Gorski’s research on a Sanofi-Aventis drug called Riluzole (Rilutek®), which may well eventually be used to treat autism. Riluzole has been approved for clinical trials (for autism) by the FDA, and one can imagine the money that might be at stake if the drug makes it to market.
(Note Sanofi -Aventis is one of the many Big Pharma corporations that are guilty of the exorbitant pricing for insulin. Their Admelog insulin product has an average retail cost of $291.93. for a single 10 milliliter vial. Sanofi-Pasteur, previously known as Connaught, is the vaccine division of Sanofi-Aventis and is headquartered in France. It manufactures and sells 31 brand-name vaccines and is one of the 4 largest vaccine-sellers in the world, along with competitors GlaxoSmithKline, Merck and Pfizer.)
But then, reason would dictate that Orac’s criticisms of individuals disagreeing with his views not be so personal and mean-spirited, because it’s always more effective in the long-run to present one’s case standing atop the moral high ground, instead of down in the gutter.
The collection of disparaging pieces by Orac and Raptor about anyone offering a different perspective about vaccination is so impressive in both volume and diversity it’s a wonder they have any time left for their day jobs. But rather than take umbrage, those at whom such vitriol is aimed should feel comforted by Socrates’ memorable adage,
“When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser.”
Or its modern-day equivalent by Britain’s Maggie Thatcher, “I always cheer up immensely if an attack is particularly wounding because I think, well, if they attack one personally, it means they have not a single political argument left.” (… just replace “political” with “vaccine”).
So yes, if you take Orac’s and Raptor’s trolling and their blogs seriously, you are likely to believe that 99.9% of all doctors and scientists are enthusiastically onboard with the mainstream vaccine paradigm, because you have automatically excluded all those who Orac, Raptor and others like them are afraid of and try really hard to discredit and silence.
There’s that pesky cognitive dissonance rearing its ugly head again.

Anti-Over-Vaccination Quotes from Research Scientists, Knowledgeable Vaccine Skeptics and Assorted Whistle-blowers Exposing the Pseudoscience of the Pharmaceutical Industry
Compiled by Gary G. Kohls, MD - (Last Update 2-26-2019)
“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgement of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM).” - Marcia Angell, MD, former Editor in Chief of the NEJM
“The human immune system is divided into two major classes: 1) Cellular Immunity (for which injected vaccines do absolutely nothing, except to weaken it), located in the mucous membranes of the gastrointestinal and respiratory tracts and their respective lymph nodes and 2) Humoral Immunity, with production of antigen-specific antibodies by plasma cells in the bone marrow. For eons of time the mucous membranes of the gastrointestinal and respiratory tracts have been the primary sites of infectious microbe entry into the body so that, of necessity, mucosal/cellular immunity has evolved as the primary defense system, with humoral immunity serving a secondary or backup role…Vaccines are reversing these roles, attempting to substitute vaccine-induced humoral immunity for the far more efficient mucosal immunity, the latter in turn undergoing a process of “atrophy of disuse” as a result of this role-switching.” - Harold Buttram, MD
Many polio-like illnesses, such as Coxsackie and ECHO viruses, syphilis, arsenic, lead and DDT toxicity, transverse myelitis and Guillain-Barre syndrome, hand, foot and mouth disease were all re-classified as separate disorders, having previously been considered polio. In addition, dietary factors may have played a role in polio prevalence. I believe the vaccination probably did contribute to the reduction in the incidence of polio in the Western Hemisphere, but the fact that the role has been overstated and distorted by the propagandists who wish to promote vaccination by spreading an unhealthy fear of non-vaccination is morally indefensible and weakens their argument immeasurably.” - Suzanne Humphries, MD, author of the powerful book that exposes the myths that have been so successfully propagated by the world’s vaccine industry,“ Dissolving Illusions: Disease, Vaccines and the Forgotten History”
“One of the most disconcerting discoveries in clinical medicine was the finding that children with congenital agammaglobulinaemia, who could make no antibody and had only insignificant traces of immunoglobulin in circulation, contracted measles in normal fashion, showed the usual sequence of symptoms and signs, and were subsequently immune. No measles antibody was detectable in their serum [the water part of blood minus clotting factors and cells].” – Dr Suzanne Humphries, author of Dissolving Illusions “We have made the first ever measurements of aluminium in brain tissue from 12 donors diagnosed with familial Alzheimer’s disease.
The concentrations of aluminium were extremely high, for example, there were values in excess of 10 μg/g tissue dry wt. in 5 of the 12 individuals. Overall, the concentrations were higher than all previous measurements of brain aluminium except cases of known aluminium-induced encephalopathy.” – Dr Christopher Exeley, world-renowned aluminum toxicologist
“Medical ethics demands that vaccination should be carried out with the participant’s full and informed consent. This necessitates an objective disclosure of the known or foreseeable vaccination benefits and risks. The way in which pediatric vaccines are often promoted by various health authorities indicates that such disclosure is rarely given from the basis of best available knowledge but rather, largely unproven and/or untenable assumptions on both, vaccine safety and effectiveness.” – “Lucija Tomljenovic
“All drugs are associated with some risks of adverse reactions. Because vaccines represent a special category of drugs which are by and large given to healthy individuals, and for prophylaxis against diseases to which an individual may never be exposed, the margin of tolerance for side effects is very narrow (in fact, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) concurs with this point) and careful assessment of risks versus benefits essential in deciding whether one should be vaccinated or not. Removing the parental rights to exemptions to childhood vaccinations will put vulnerable but otherwise healthy individuals at risk of serious adverse reactions to vaccinations. Such an outcome should be of concern since serious adverse reactions following routine vaccinations in children, including deaths, permanent neurological damage and disabling autoimmune and/or inflammatory conditions have been clearly described in the scientific literature. Notably, cases of seizure attacks and deaths occurring as a result of routine vaccinations have occurred even in children and individuals without any relevant prior medical history and in some cases a direct causal link was established between vaccination and the serious adverse reactions.” – Lucija Tomljenovic
“It is further likely that an increasing number of individuals, regardless of their genetic background, will react adversely if exposures to compounds with immune adjuvant properties exceed a certain threshold. This concept has in fact been clearly demonstrated by Ken Tsumiyama et al. (in the research team’s journal article, which was titled: “Self-Organized Criticality Theory of Autoimmunity”) who in 2009 showed that repeated immunization with antigen causes systemic autoimmunity in mice otherwise not prone to spontaneous autoimmune diseases.” - Lucija Tomljenovic
“Systemic autoimmunity appears to be the inevitable consequence of over-stimulating the host’s immune ‘system’ by repeated immunization with antigen, to the levels that surpass system’s self-organized criticality.” – Tsumiyama, et. al. “Aluminum (Al) is highly neurotoxic and has been shown to impair both prenatal and postnatal brain development in humans and experimental animals. In addition to its neurotoxic properties, Al is a potent stimulator of the immune system, which is the very reason why it is used as an adjuvant. Given this, it is somewhat surprising to ﬁnd that in spite of over 80 years of use, the safety of Al adjuvants continues to rest on assumptions (of safety) rather than scientiﬁc evidence.” - Christopher Shaw and Lucija Tomljenovic
“During critical periods in brain development, even very small immune challenges can result in permanent harmful changes in brain and immune system functions. Experimentation has shown that even a single hepatitis B vaccine administered to a newborn primate can cause significant developmental delays in suckling responses required for survival.” - Christopher Shaw and Lucija Tomljenovic
“The only time the “cure” word is used anymore is by corporate research organizations (and patient advocacy groups) when they solicit funds from the public during their annual charity drives or their ‘walks for the cure’. Clearly all of the financial incentives are to mount a never-ending, unsuccessful search for the cure without ever actually finding it.” – quote from www.healingmatters.com “Industry-controlled ‘science’ is not really science but a smokescreen to pave the way for products that may be harmful - but what do they care as long as they profit? There are many great scientists but there are also some who are willing to be hired to ‘prove’ that something doesn't cause cancer, or that something is ‘safe’. You cannot trust the EPA, the FDA, or industry science.” – Anonymous Blogger on Mercola.com 8/16/16
Addendum to the above blogger: “Nor can you trust the CDC, the ACIP, the NIMH, the NIH, the AMA, the AAP, the AAFP, the APA, the American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute, etc, all of which have unethical, morally-crippling financial relationships with sociopathic, for-profit corporate entities that comprise what is known as Big Pharma (and Big Vaccine, Big Medicine and Big Business).” – Gary G. Kohls, MD
“The corporation is a true Frankenstein’s monster - an artificial person run amok, responsible only to its own soulless self…representing capitalism at its very purest, completely unconcerned with anything save profit and power.” – William Dugger, author of “Corporate Hegemony” "
The only way vaccine manufacturers are connected to immunity, other than disrupting it, is the immunity they enjoy against legal action for the serious harm they cause. Since the 1980's, when the litigation-wracked industry was 'vaccinated' by the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, this burden has fallen on taxpayers." -- Peter Tocci
“The majority of studies that authorities point to as proof that vaccines do not cause autism have been published in a journal called Pediatrics, the official journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics. As we know, the AAP is a trade union for pediatricians.” (The American Academy of Pediatrics derives a majority of its outside contributions - estimated at more than $25 million per year - from pharmaceutical companies that make vaccines. The pediatricians that the AAP represents derive the majority of their annual revenues from the administration of vaccines to their pediatric patients.) -- J.B. Handley
“The case against (corporate) science is straightforward: much of the scientific (and medical) literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.” – Richard Horton, MD, Editor-in-chief of the highly-esteemed British medical journal The Lancet
Dr Tomljenovic uncovered documents that reveal vaccine manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies and health authorities have known about multiple dangers associated with vaccines but chose to withhold them from the public. This is scientific fraud and suggests that this practice continues to this day. The documents were obtained from the UK Department of Health (DH) and the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunization (JCVI), who advise the Secretaries of State for Health in the UK about diseases preventable through immunizations. The JCVI made continuous efforts to withhold critical data on severe adverse reactions and contraindications to vaccinations to both parents and health practitioners in order to reach overall vaccination rates.)
Quotes from the writings of Gary G. Kohls, MD
“For many decades vaccines have contained known human toxins. Yet, most people – including their doctors - are totally unaware that vaccines can contain calf serum, monkey kidney tissue, yeast cells, cow’s milk proteins, pesticides, formaldehyde and cell lines derived from aborted human fetuses and all-too-often strange organic compounds that cannot even be identified by chemists. The viruses in vaccines are grown in chick embryos, enabling the spread of retroviruses and commonly causing unwanted immune responses to various proteins that often contaminate the inocula.” “
The metallic neurotoxin aluminum is an “adjuvant” that is commonly added to many vaccines in order to stimulate (all too often “over-stimulate”) immune responses to the intended antigens that are in the inoculum - as well as the large variety of unintended contaminants that can’t be avoided in the manufacturing process. The aluminum can also adhere to the large variety of tissues, cells, blood and sera of the body that are always injured when the needle pierces the muscles and causes it to bleed. Aluminum adjuvants therefore commonly cause hyperimmune/autoimmune reactions when the metal is injected intramuscularly. There is no known safe dose of aluminum (or mercury) when administered in an intramuscular injection. “Therefore, since infants and children since the 1980s (Reagan era) are being increasingly over-vaccinated with cocktails of vaccines (that have never been proven to be either safe or effective in the long-term), the US is now experiencing epidemics of once-rare chronic autoimmune disorders, including childhood type 1 diabetes, seizure disorders, rheumatoid disorders, asthma, allergies, etc. Examples of some of the ingredients of common vaccines (besides the live, killed or inactivated viruses) include the following”
“Hepatitis B (Recombivax) contains aluminum, peptone, amino acids, mineral salts, phosphate buffer, formaldehyde, potassium sulfate and yeast protein. “Infanrix (DTaP - Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertussis (whooping cough) contains bovine casein, formaldehyde, aluminum, polysorbate 80. “Polio vaccine (injectable) Eagle MEM calf bovine serum, monkey kidney cells, phenoxyethanol, formaldehyde, neomycin, streptomycin and polymyxin B.
“HPV vaccines (Gardasil and Cervarix) contain aluminum, yeast protein, polysorbate 80 and sodium borate. “Fluzone (influenza vaccine - multi-dose vial) contains thimerosal (mercury), formaldehyde, egg protein, octylphenol ethoxylate and sodium phosphate. “Prevnar-13 (pneumococcal vaccine) contains aluminum, soy peptone broth, casamino acids, yeast extract, carrier protein and polysorbate 80. “
Thimerosal (ethyl mercury) is used as a preservative in vaccines to prevent bacterial contamination in rubber-stoppered multiple dose vaccine vials. Mercury, which is in ‘silver’ dental amalgams, is the second most poisonous element on the periodic table (second only to radioactive plutonium) but is still used in vaccines in the US despite a 2004 Government ruling to eliminate it.” – Gary G. Kohls, MD
Quotes from the Alliance for Natural Health, USA
“Merck’s Gardasil is not safe, it’s not financially rational and it’s not necessary. So, essentially, we’ve manufactured a crisis and created a solution that’s very lucrative for many but harms our children. We’ve looked at over 300 studies that show children between the ages of 3 and 11 have the HPV virus in their bodies.”
“Some studies show babies have the HPV virus at birth, others, you’re looking at children that are preschool age, but the point is that we have a lot unanswered questions about the possibility of this virus being transmitted from mother to child at birth (and NOT via sexual contact).
“This is critical because when one is vaccinated with this vaccine and that person already has the HPV virus, it increases their chances of developing cervical and other cancers.
“So, we are putting our children not only at risk in all of the ways we’ve already seen with the adverse events…the autoimmune conditions…but we’re also looking at the possibility of increasing, down the road, the likelihood that many of these children could develop additional cancers because of this vaccine…This is a huge issue. We have to ask these questions; we have to study this more carefully.” - Gretchen DuBeau, executive and legal director for Alliance for Natural Health, USA
“The cervical cancer rate in the U.S. is 12 per 100,000, by Gardasil-marketer Merck & Co’s own admission, At the same time, Gardasil may cause 2,300 serious adverse events per 100,000.” --Norma Erickson, president of Sanevax, Inc. (an international HPV (human papilloma virus) vaccine information clearinghouse in Troy, Montana)
“Is it really reasonable to risk 2,300 serious adverse events — which includes sudden death — in the hopes of preventing 12 cases of cervical cancer out of 100,000? “Trial data from Merck shows that Gardasil vaccinations may actually increase the risk of cervical cancer by 44.6 percent if you have been exposed to HPV strains 16 or 18 prior to vaccination. (The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has made this document inaccessible, but we’ve saved a copy of it for posterity.)” – Joseph Mercola, DO “We’re talking about more than 300 girls who have died, around the world…We’re talking about 46,000 girls who have very, very serious side effects.” - Professor Marcos Mazzuka, a pediatrician specializing in vaccine injuries in Madrid, Spain
Quotes from Russell Blaylock, MD
“So-called (pro-vaccine) ‘vaccinologists’ are so blinded by their obsession with forcing vaccines on society that they never even considered that there might be factors involved that could greatly affect human health…’vaccinologists’ like to think in concrete terms-that is, they are very narrow in their thinking and wear blinders that prevent them from seeing the numerous problems occurring with large numbers of vaccinations in infants and children. Their goal in life is to vaccinate as many people as possible with an ever-growing number of vaccines.” - Russell Blaylock, MD
“For a long time no one considered the effect of repeated vaccinations on the brain. This was based on a mistaken conclusion that the brain was protected from immune activation by its special protective gateway called the blood-brain barrier. More recent studies have shown that immune cells can enter the brain directly, and more importantly, the brain’s own special immune system can be activated by vaccination.” – Russell Blaylock, MD
“It is obvious that a massive cover-up is in progress, as we have seen with so many other scandals -- fluoride, food-based excitotoxins, pesticides, aluminum and now vaccines (including aluminum, mercury and live viruses, each of which can cause iatrogenic encephalopathies). I would caution those critical of the present vaccine policy not to put all their eggs in one basket, that is, with thimerosal (the vaccine preservative, 50% of which is mercury) as being the main culprit. There is no question that it plays a major role, but there are other factors that are also critical, including aluminum, fluoro-aluminum complexes, and chronic immune activation of brain microglia.
“In fact, excessive, chronic microglial activation can explain many of the effects of excessive vaccine exposure as I point out in two recently published articles. One property of both aluminum and mercury is microglial activation. With chronic microglial activation large concentrations of excitotoxins are released as well as neurotoxic cytokines. These have been shown to destroy synaptic connections, dendrites and cause abnormal pathway development in the developing brain as well as adult brain.
“In essence, too many vaccines are being given to children during the brain's most rapid growth period. Known toxic metals are beings used in the vaccines that interfere with brain metabolism, antioxidant enzymes, damage DNA and DNA repair enzymes and trigger excitotoxicity. Removing the mercury will help but will not solve the problem because overactivation of the brain's immune system will cause varying degrees of neurological damage to the highly-vulnerable developing brain.” – Dr Russell Blaylock, neurosurgeon, researcher, vaccine skeptic and author of the whistle-blowing essay revealing systemic corruption at the CDC that was titled: The Truth Behind the Vaccine Cover-Up.
Quotes from FDA whistleblower, John Anthony Morris, MD (1919–2014)
“These figures give some idea of the consequences resulting from a program in which the Federal government assumes liability of a product known to produce in an indeterminate number of recipients, serious damage to health…when I left the Food and Drug Administration in 1976, there was no available technique to measure reliably and consistently neurotoxicity or potency of most of the vaccines then in use, including DPT vaccines. Today, 11 years later, the situation remains essentially the same.” - John Anthony Morris, MD
“The producers of these [influenza] vaccines know they are worthless, but they go on selling them anyway…It’s a medical rip-off…I believe the public should have truthful information on the basis of which they can determine whether or not to take the vaccine. I believe that, given full information, they won’t take the vaccine.” - John Anthony Morris, MD (The Washington Post, 1979) “
There is a great deal of evidence to prove that immunization of children does more harm than good.” - John Anthony Morris, MD
“In 1972, The New York Times quoted B.G. Young who characterized DBS (the FDA’s Division of Biological Standards) reprisals against honest scientists: ‘Suppression, harassment, and censorship of individual investigators…I finally came to realize that you either had to compromise yourself or leave. Morris and Eddy are the real heroes in that place because they stayed and fought. The others voted with their feet and left.’” – John Anthony Morris, MD Quotes from Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, United Methodist Women
“Let us have a look at what is happening to children in our modern society. If you look around, how many healthy children do you see? Childhood asthma, eczema, diabetes, allergies, hay fever, digestive disorders, ADHD and autistic spectrum disorders have all gained epidemic proportions! The majority of siblings of autistic children have eczema, asthma or another one of those disorders. And though all these health problems appear to be different, they have one thing in common- a compromised immune system. A compromised immune system is not going to react to environmental insults in the normal way! Vaccination is a huge insult to the immune system.
“The manufacturers of vaccines produce them for children with normal immune system which will react to these vaccines in a predictable way. However, in our modern society, with our modern way of life, we are rapidly moving to a situation where a growing proportion of children do not have a normal immune system and will not produce an expected reaction to the vaccine.
“In some of these children, vaccination, putting an enormous strain on an already compromised immune system, becomes that ‘last straw which breaks the camel’s back’ and brings in the beginning of autism, asthma, eczema, diabetes, etc.” – Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, Gut and Psychology Syndrome
Quotes from Boyd Haley, former Chairman of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Kentucky
“Dr. Boyd Haley, former professor of medicinal chemistry and chairman of the chemistry department at the University of Kentucky, published a study in which he investigated the effect of combining aluminum hydroxide with thimerosal. In this study, cultured neurons showed no significant cell death six hours after they were exposed to just aluminum; more than 90% survived. Thimerosal alone also caused few neurons to die after six hours of exposure. Again, more than 90% survived. However, when cultured neurons were exposed to aluminum and thimerosal, only about 40% survived after six hours, clearly demonstrating synergistic toxicity.” - http://www.jpands.org/vol21no4/miller.pdf

“As was proven by the tobacco situation, trying to find any significant negative effect of one product (amalgams) related to any disease through epidemiological studies is very difficult and complex. To do this with mercury would be difficult because of the synergistic effect two or more toxic metals or compounds (e.g. cadmium from smoking) may have on the toxicity of the mercury emitted from amalgams. For example, one publication showed that combining mercury and lead both at LD1 levels caused the killing rate to go to 100% or to an LD100 level. An LD1 level is where, due to the low concentrations, the mercury or the lead alone was not very toxic alone (i.e., killed less than 1% of rats exposed when metal was used alone). The 100% killing, when addition of 1% plus 1% we would expect 2%, represents synergistic toxicity. Therefore, mixing non-lethal levels of mercury plus non-lethal levels of lead gave an extremely toxic mixture! What this proves is that one cannot define a ‘safe level of mercury’ unless you absolutely know what other toxicants the individual is being exposed to. The combined toxicity of various materials, such as mercury (Thimerosal in vaccines), lead, aluminum, formaldehyde, etc., is unknown. The effects of various combinations of these toxicants is also not defined except that we know they would be much worse than any one of the toxicants alone.” – Boyd Haley, PhD
“The ADA (American Dental Association), through state dental boards stacked with ADA members, has instigated a “gag order” preventing dentists from even mentioning to their patients that amalgams are 50% mercury. Dentists cannot state that mercury is neurotoxic and emits from amalgams and that the dental patient should consider this as they select the tooth filling material they want used. If a dentist informs a patient of these very truthful facts he will be considered not to be practicing good dentistry and his license will be in jeopardy. Attacking a person’s freedom of speech because he is telling the truth and causing serious questions to be asked about the protocols pushed by a bureaucracy (the ADA) makes me seriously question the commitment the ADA has for the health of the American people. The negative stand taken by many state dental boards against even informing the patients about the mercury content of amalgams and the other filling choices they have does not speak well for the organized dental profession. What medical group would give a treatment to a patient without telling them of the risks involved?” – Boyd Haley, PhD
“The ADA was founded on the basis that mercury-containing amalgams are safe and useful for dental fillings. This may have been an acceptable position in 1850. However, modern science has proven that amalgams constantly emit unacceptable levels of mercury. Especially as the average life span has increased from 50 to 75-78 years of age where AD and Parkinson’s become prevalent diseases. The ADA can try to verify its position using selected epidemiological studies. But the bottom line is that amalgams emit significant levels of neurotoxic mercury that are injurious to human health and would exacerbate the medical condition of those individuals with neurological diseases such as ALS, MS, Parkinson’s, autism and AD.” – Boyd Haley, PhD Quotes from Harold Buttram, MD
“In the field of chemical toxicology it is universally recognized that combinations of toxins may bring exponential increases of toxicity; ie, a combination of two chemicals may bring a 10-fold increase in toxicity, three chemicals 100-fold increases. This same principle almost certainly applies to the immunosuppressive effects of viral vaccines when administered in combination, as with the MMR vaccine, among which the measles vaccine is (known to be) exceptionally immunosuppresive.” – Harold Buttram, MD
“The human immune system is divided into two major classes:
1) Cellular Immunity (for which injected vaccines do absolutely nothing, except to weaken it), located in the mucous membranes of the gastrointestinal and respiratory tracts and their respective lymph nodes and
2) Humoral Immunity, with production of antigen-specific antibodies by plasma cells in the bone marrow. For eons of time the mucous membranes of the gastrointestinal and respiratory tracts have been the primary sites of infectious microbe entry into the body so that, of necessity, mucosal/cellular immunity has evolved as the primary defense system, with humoral immunity serving a secondary or backup role…Vaccines are reversing these roles, attempting to substitute vaccine-induced humoral immunity for the far more efficient mucosal immunity, the latter in turn undergoing a process of “atrophy of disuse” as a result of this role-switching.” - Harold Buttram, MD
“The steadily increasing patterns of physical and/or mental illnesses among American children show no signs of abating. Unless this issue is definitively addressed, at some future time the process will pass a point of no return (socially and economically) from the sheer numbers of (vaccine-) incapacitated children.” – Harold Buttram, MD
“The soaring incidence of physical and mental illnesses among today’s children (may be) causally related to current childhood vaccine programs. Primary among these is the large-scale contamination of the measles, mumps, and influenza vaccines with retroviruses capable of engrafting their genetics into the DNA of childhood recipients. This is rendered more likely because of the cavalier disregard with which combinations of viral vaccines are now being administered, primarily involving the MMR vaccines…in spite of the toxicology principle that combinations of toxins may bring exponential (10-fold or 100-fold) increases in toxicity.” – Harold Buttram, MD
“Based on currently available scientific evidence, dental amalgam is a safe, affordable and durable material for all but a handful of individuals who are allergic to one of its components. It contains a mixture of metals such as silver, copper and tin, in addition to mercury, which chemically binds these components into a hard, stable and safe substance…Amalgams have been used for 150 years and, during that time, has established an extensively reviewed record of safety and effectiveness.” – American Dental Association “… faced with a patient who has all the signs and symptoms of a particular disease, from which they have been ‘protected’ by immunization, it is obviously difficult to make the diagnosis they would have made if faced by such a case in an unvaccinated person. By calling the disease something else they are protecting their belief system, and the integrity of the theories around which they have built their actions, such as vaccination … All this is done to protect a system, and to help to save the public from having doubt as to the efficacy of methods. --- Leon Chaitow, ND, DO from his book “Vaccination and Immunization: Dangers, Delusions and Alternatives”
“The public in both poor and rich countries has a right to scientifically-based evidence that international vaccine programs are as safe as possible and that they have been thoroughly safety-tested. The best metrics for measuring safety are studies comparing health outcomes of vaccinated versus unvaccinated cohorts. Yet, both the CDC and the WHO have aggressively discouraged the pursuit of such studies. – Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
