Despite the fact that I am a physician, I have long been suspicious of the influence of giant multinational medical corporate cartels that are best referred to as Big Pharma, Big Vaccine, Big Medicine, Big Insurance, Big Food, Big Agrichemical, etc. Most clear-headed observers of these industries (that meet the psychiatrist’s DSM definition of sociopathic entities) are justifiably concerned about the inordinate influence that they have over the mainstream media and most of our political parties, legislators and presidents.
These mega-corporations and their cunning multibillionaire owners (the 0.01%) are the paymasters of every politician and political party that thinks that they has to have millions of dollars in their campaign coffers in order to keep their political offices safe. Those paymasters, as is the case with all their other “investments”, expect a handsome long-term return on those investments. Those entities with excess luxury wealth are very serious when it comes to their money. That is why they can be so ruthless when it comes to getting what they want from their stable of politicians, lawyers and the publishers and editors of their newspapers and their television and radio stations.
My consciousness concerning the innate corruption in the vaccine industry was sharply raised when my father (in the totally bogus 1976 Swine Flu that NEVER materialized!) had the peripheral nerves to his hands poisoned by the neurotoxic mercury-containing Swine Flu vaccine. The small muscles that had been previously innervated by both of his radial nerves became permanently paralyzed. Within days the poisonous heavy metal in that vaccine caused a classical Guillain-Barre syndrome that he never recovered from. He never did regain his mastery of what was his lifelong love - fishing
In a now frequently repeated scenario (the latest ones being the Ebola virus “pandemic” and now the equally bogus Zika virus/microcephaly epidemic), the vaccine industry’s lobbyists are successfully capitalizing on what is very likely an iatrogenic illness (physician or medicine-caused disease). And the public health agencies (all indoctrinated into believing the med school myths that all vaccines are safe and effective) are scaring the wits out of us with plausible, but unproven theories about another alleged “vaccine-preventable” epidemic.
Then, with the constant stream of propaganda from the once respected Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (the CDC) shaping the beliefs of an easily freaked-out populace, president and legislature, the vaccine industry presents a blueprint for fast-tracking through the regulatory process a new, potentially dangerous, and likely untested vaccine that will be easily marketed to blindly pro-vaccine clinics and blindly pro-vaccine physicians to be given to every scared-out-of-their-wits patient in hearing range whose insurance will cover the unaffordable costs.
This is American capitalism, folks, and what is happening before our eyes is the old, tried and true strategy to siphon off a few billion dollars from us taxpayers and at the same time jack up the stock price of the corporation.
In retrospect, by the way, my father’s pro-vaccine 1970s internist was not unlike the current crop of doctors. He had been indoctrinated in med school with the notion that all vaccines are safe and effective, despite the fact that vaccines have never had to go through the rigorous science that most drugs have to do to get approval. He was totally in the dark about what had caused the Guillain-Barre syndrome (he said it was the virus).
He was also oblivious to the fact that mercury (which is still in flu shots and our dentist’s “silver” dental fillings to this day) was a serious poison to all tissues, particularly nerve and brain tissue. Unaware of his missed diagnosis (of the root cause), his ignorance made him continue to blindly inoculate the other patients in his clinic, many of whom were likely damaged in any number of ways by the unnecessary – and dangerous – toxic vaccine ingredients.
Since then, I have been confronted with uncounted numbers of patients and stories about the seriously adverse effects of mercury-containing vaccines, aluminum-containing vaccines, and fluoride-containing prescription drugs - especially when they are cavalierly injected into the muscles of tiny infants whose blood-brain barriers are at their most immature and who are increasingly likely to suffer permanent brain damage, especially when the shots are given in unproven combinations. (Some tiny infants - at their 2, 4 or 6 month doctor visits receive as many as eight different antigens at a time, each shot containing potentially neurotoxic substances [aluminum, mercury, formaldehyde, antibiotics, viral particles, unfilterable contaminants, etc] that have additive toxic effects and - what is far worse - synergistic effects when given simultaneously.)
Recently cunning lobbyists from multinational corporations, particularly the vaccine industry, the genetically-altered mosquito industry, the insecticide and mosquito repellant industries, etc have been influencing the CDC and many well-meaning folks in the legislative and executive branches of government (including President Obama), creating a Zika virus freak-out no different from the other pseudo-epidemic hoaxes in the past (Swine Flu, Bird Flu, Avian Flu, SARS, etc, etc.)
In my reading and research, I came across a CDC document that claimed to teach physicians about the toxicology of aluminum. The book-length opus (see a few excerpts below) had been approved by the notorious (at least in vaccine skeptic circles) Dr Julie Gerberding, who had gone through the infamous government service-directly-to-industry revolving door in 2009. In Dr Gerberding’s case she went from CDC public service official (where, as head of the CDC, she had shepherded Merck’s untested-for-long-term-safety-OR-efficacy, the first Human Papilloma Virus vaccine Gardisil]) to soon become Director of Merck & Company’s Vaccine Division. See more of the outrageous financial details below (hint: she received a reported $2.5 million salary at Merck, with generous stock options from the company as well).
I am outraged by the poor research that had been done by the various governmental agencies that are supposed to be regulating corporations. Everybody admits it is a fox ruling the henhouse situation. Most of the research quoted in the CDC aluminum toxicology document below was form the 1980s and 1990s, totally ignoring all the new sobering research that reveals how seriously poisonous are aluminum-adjuvanted vaccines. There is no recognition that vaccines are dangerous.
For more details about the new research on the neuro-toxicology of aluminum adjuvants, and the unlikelihood that the Brazilian microcephaly epidemic was caused by a mosquito virus, please google “Zika Virus Freakout – Gary Kohls” and read my series of columns on the subject. Then for much more click on http://duluthreader.com/articles/2015/02/18/4846_vaccine_induced_immune_overload_and_the_epidemic-1 to read a number of columns that I have written over the past 14 months on related topics, including mitochondrial damage from vaccine ingredients, brain damage from prescription drugs and vaccines and many other articles on the vitally important now well-established ASIA syndrome that the CDC, FDA, AAP, AMA, AAFP and the medical establishment are either ignorant about or are otherwise refusing to acknowledge (google the Autoimmune/inflammatory Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants).
In the meantime note that the 2008 CDC document below fails to mention the now well-known fact that aluminum is a neurotoxic substance that, when it damages the brains of fetuses, is then called a teratogen. (A teratogen is any substance that can disturb the development of an embryo or fetus and thus cause a birth defect in the child.) The CDC document talks about the toxicity of aluminum being given by mouth or inhalation or trans-dermally (through the skin) and even intravenously, but never mentions that aluminum-adjuvanted vaccines are injected intramuscularly, where they are dramatically more toxic than by any other route. It is a frightening example of bad science, which translates, of course, into bad medicine.
The CDC should be apologizing to every vaccine-injured fetus, infant, child, adult or family member and, until it does, its veracity in the future needs to be constantly doubted. Below are portions of the 2008 document, which, to my knowledge, has not been updated.

TOXICOLOGICAL PROFILE FOR ALUMINUM
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES
Public Health Service Agency for the CDC’s Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR)
Posted at: http://www.atsdr.cdc.gov/toxprofiles/tp22.pdf
The staff of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other Federal scientists have also reviewed the profile. Final responsibility for the contents and views expressed in this toxicological profile resides with ATSDR.
This document was co-signed by Julie Louise Gerberding, M.D., M.P.H, Administrator, Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR)
Important note: Dr Gerberding was appointed by George W. Bush to serve as CDC Director starting in 2002. She was highly influential in subverting the massive amount of evidence that proved, in the minds of many scientists, physicians and millions of American parents, that the CDC’s over-vaccination schedule of infants and children was the basis of the huge autism epidemic (partially caused, incidentally, by Dr Gerberding’s future employer Merck & Co, vaccine industry giant and marketer of the dangerous and increasingly discredited HPV vaccine Gardisil ).
Dr Gerberding resigned her post at the CDC on January 21, 2009, when President Obama asked for her resignation.
In late 2009, Dr Gerberding was hired by Merck & Co. Inc, and a year later became President of Merck’s Vaccines Division at an estimated salary of $2.5 million per year. She “served” as vaccine director for 5 years and, in January 2015, was promoted to Executive Vice President of Strategic Communications, Global Public Policy and Population Health at Merck & Co. Inc.
In a stock transaction dated May 8th, 2015, Dr Gerberding sold 38,368 shares of Merck stock on the open market. The stock was sold at an average price per share of $60.99, for $2,340,000. Earlier that day, she had exercised 46,208 stock options that had been granted her from Merck in 2011 and 2012.

“TOXICOLOGICAL PROFILE FOR ALUMINUM”
How Might I Be Exposed to
Aluminum” – (Page 3)
People are exposed to aluminum in some cosmetics, antiperspirants, and pharmaceuticals such as antacids and buffered aspirin.
• Antacids have 300–600 mg aluminum hydroxide (approximately 104– 208 mg of aluminum) per tablet, capsule, or 5 milliliter (mL) liquid dose. Little of this form of aluminum is taken up into the bloodstream.
• Buffered aspirin may contain 10–20 mg of aluminum per tablet
• Vaccines may contain small amounts of aluminum compounds, no greater than 0.85 mg/dose.
How Can Aluminum Enter
Your Body? – Page 4
(Note: the report fails to mention that aluminum can also enter the body through intramuscular injections in the form of vaccines – a serious failing)
A small amount of the aluminum you breathe will enter your body through your lungs.
A very small amount of the aluminum in food or water will enter your body through the digestive tract. An extremely small amount of the aluminum found in antacids will be absorbed.
A very small amount may enter through your skin when you come into contact with aluminum.
How can Aluminum Leave Your Body?
Most aluminum in food, water, and medicines leaves your body quickly in the feces. Much of the small amount of aluminum that does enter the bloodstream will quickly leave your body in the urine.
Effects in Children – Page 6
“Brain and bone disease caused by high levels of aluminum in the body have been seen in children with kidney disease. Bone disease has also been seen in children taking some medicines containing aluminum. In these children, the bone damage is caused by aluminum in the stomach preventing the absorption of phosphate, a chemical compound required for healthy bones.”
Birth Defects (None were done with intramuscular aluminum, however)
“Very young animals appeared weaker and less active in their cages and some movements appeared less coordinated when their mothers were exposed to large amounts of aluminum during pregnancy and while nursing. In addition, aluminum also affected the animal’s memory. These effects are similar to those that have been seen in adults. It does not appear that children are more sensitive than adult animals.”
Health Effects of Aluminum Exposure - Page 104
“The normal level of aluminum in the human brain shows that gray matter contains about twice the concentration found in the white matter.”
“(Inhaled) aluminum is taken up by alveolar macrophages through phagocytosis and transported to pulmonary lymph nodes.”
“Aluminum crosses the placenta and accumulates in the fetus and distributes to some extent to the milk of lactating mothers.”
“Elevated levels of aluminum were also observed in the fetus, providing evidence of transplacental transfer of aluminum.”
“The distribution of aluminum following intravenous, subcutaneous, intraperitoneal, and intramuscular exposure has been evaluated in studies with experimental animals (but was not studied or reported in the research articles included in this2008 CDC report!). Results of these animal studies indicate that aluminum distributes to a number of tissues, organs, and biological fluids.”
“The livers of exposed rabbits (after being given a single intravenous dose of aluminum lactate) had over 80% of the total body burden of aluminum.”
“The half-life of aluminum in the brain of rats receiving an intravenous dose of aluminum citrate was approximately 150 days.”
“Subcutaneous injection of rabbits with aluminum chloride daily for 28 days was associated with significant accumulation of aluminum in bone, followed in order by significantly increased aluminum concentrations in renal cortex, renal medulla, liver, testes, skeletal muscle, heart, brain white matter, hippocampus, and plasma.”
“Differences in brain aluminum levels following administration of different aluminum compounds may also be due to the presence of carrier systems that can transport aluminum into or out of the brain.”
“Following intramuscular administration of aluminum hydroxide or aluminum phosphate vaccine adjuvants in rabbits, increased levels of (radio-labeled) 26Al were found in the kidney, spleen, liver, heart, lymph nodes, and brain (in decreasing order of aluminum concentration).”
“here is also evidence from animal studies indicating that aluminum administered parenterally accumulates to a small extent in the milk of lactating mothers, and that aluminum crosses the placenta and accumulates in fetal tissue.”
“Intraperitoneal exposure of pregnant mice to aluminum chloride on gestation days 7–16 has been associated with significantly increased concentrations of aluminum in both placental and fetal tissues.”
“Within the fetus, the level of 26Al in the brain was as high as 30% of that in the fetal liver; Intravenous, intraperitoneal, or subcutaneous exposure of lactating rats, rabbits, or mice to aluminum lactate or aluminum chloride has been associated with increased concentrations of aluminum in milk.”
