LOL: Two Know-Nothings Get Together

RFK Jr and Robert De Niro offer $100,000 to anyone who can prove vaccines are safe.

I’d suggest offering up the lives of Robert Fitzgerald Kennedy, Junior, and Robert De Niro, both of whom are beneficiaries, as are you and I.

Fucktards….

    See safe to them means, if a trillion people take them, and 100 people have an advers effect, then they are not safe. So it cannot be proven to them, ever, because they are the stupidest of fucktards. Just sayin.

      You are dealing with complete and utter fucktards.

      But they are too fucktarded-basically dumb fucks-to even begin to even comprehend at a level where a conversation might be possible, such they can understand your words and come to grips with what fucktards they are.

    And now they have 100,000 reasons to double down on their fucktardedness. Every bit of evidence will harden their resolve not to acknowledge the data.

  3. BC on February 18, 2017 at 09:37

      Nothing new. Tons of these sorts of fallacious enclaves of micro-crowd hysteria over all sorts of “causes.”

    • Louise S on February 24, 2017 at 08:57

      @ BC – Despite his ability to think through the political morass presented to us by the MSM, Richard is unable to do the same when it comes to their presentation of vaccine safety.

      Mercury and aluminum are both neurotoxins and have no place in any modern medical treatment.

      1Post-doctoral fellow, Neural Dynamics Research Group, Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, University of British Columbia, 828 W. 10th Ave, Vancouver, BC, V5Z 1L8, Canada

      Abstract: Aluminum is an experimentally demonstrated neurotoxin and the most commonly used vaccine adjuvant. Despite almost 90 years of widespread use of aluminum adjuvants, medical science’s understanding about their mechanisms of action is still remarkably poor. There is also a concerning scarcity of data on toxicology and pharmacokinetics of these compounds. In spite of this, the notion that
      aluminum in vaccines is safe appears to be widely accepted. Experimental research, however, clearly shows that aluminum adjuvants have a potential to induce serious immunological disorders in humans. In particular, aluminum in adjuvant form carries a risk for autoimmunity, long-term brain inflammation and associated neurological complications and may thus have profound and widespread adverse health consequences. In our opinion, the possibility that vaccine benefits may have been overrated and the risk of potential adverse effects underestimated, has not been rigorously evaluated in the medical and scientific community. We hope that the present paper will provide a framework for a much needed and long overdue assessment of this highly contentious medical issue.

      Keywords: Aluminum adjuvants, adjuvant safety, autoimmunity, autism, Gulf War Syndrome, multiple sclerosis, macrophagic myofasciitis, neurotoxicity, seizures, Th2 immune response, vaccines.

      “Last month we saw how the mere idea that President Trump might form a vaccine safety commission brought on a state of frenzied anguish among pharma surrogates. A proposal for independent arbitors meet to evaluate the current state of vaccine safety research was described as a “dangerous” development that could grievously harm Americans. The concept of talking, not even doing, just talking is presented as “dangerous.” Isn’t the desire of pharma surrogates and govt. agencies to censor free speech the real danger?

      “Forming a vaccine safety commission with or without Kennedy would be counterproductive at best, harmful at worst!” Dr. Mark Schiess

      “Presidential commisions are serious affairs…creating a panel on autism with Kennedy would do enormous damage!” Fred Vox

      “Establishing a commission could be itself harmful!” Alison Singer

      Dr. William Schaffner said he “was sounding the alarm!” about a possible vaccine safety panel. Such a panel, “will put children’s lives at risk!”

      So let’s step a step back and carefully consider these emotionally overwrought answers.

      A theme in criticism of RFK JR’s proposal is NOT the desire to make vaccines safe as possible but a sense of personal outrage regarding the First Amendment. Clearly one should not have the right to ask these questions. It is as if by merely speaking about ways to improve vaccine safety = children WILL die.”

    Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons Volume 21 Number 4 Winter 2016

    Aluminum in Childhood Vaccines Is Unsafe

    http://www.jpands.org/vol21no4/miller.pdf

    “In the Code of Federal Regulations, Title 21, published in the Federal Register, aluminum toxicity levels are revealed:

    WARNING: This product contains aluminum that may be toxic…. Research indicates that patients with impaired kidney function, including premature neonates, who receive [injections] of aluminum at greater than 4 to 5 mcg per kilogram of body weight per day, accumulate aluminum at levels associated with central nervous system and bone toxicity. Tissue loading may occur at even lower rates. 66

    This means that for a 6-pound baby with impaired kidney function, 11-14 mcg of injected aluminum would be toxic. The hepatitis B vaccine given at birth contains 250 mcg of aluminum—20 times higher than safety levels indicated for premies. Babies weigh around 12 pounds at two months of age when they are injected with 1,225 mcg of aluminum from their CDC-recommended vaccines—50 times higher than safety levels for premies.”

    According to Figure 2 on page 110, the “Age-Specific and Cumulative Aluminum Exposure by 18 Months of Age” in micrograms is as follows:
    •At Birth 250 mcg
    •2 Months 1225 mcg
    •4 Months 975 mcg
    •6 Months 1000 mcg
    •12 Months 600 mcg
    •15 Months 625 mcg
    •18 Months 250 mcg
    •Grand Total of 4,925 mcg of aluminum by 18 months of age.

    Those amounts were taken from vaccine manufacturer’s product inserts and the CDC’s 2016 childhood vaccine schedule, per Neil Miller.

    “The above does not include the CDC’s recommended vaccines for pregnant women (Tdap vaccine), which also contains aluminum.

    Studies show that aluminum crosses the placenta and accumulates in fetal tissue.12 Thus, millions of babies in utero, infants, and young children were injected with, and continue to receive, unnaturally high doses of neurotoxic substances—mercury and aluminum—long after unsuspecting parents were led to believe that vaccines were purified and made safe. Pg. 109

    Moreover, vaccines with aluminum adjuvants are injected into the body, bypassing protective barriers of the gastrointestinal tract and skin. Absorption of aluminum by this mode is more efficient than through ingestion, increasing the likelihood of a toxic outcome. The authors [46] summarized their findings: ‘Evidence has now emerged showing that autism may in part result from early-life immune insults induced by environmental xenobiotics. One of the most common xenobiotic with immune-stimulating as well as neurotoxic properties to which infants under two years of age are routinely exposed worldwide is the aluminum vaccine adjuvant’. Pg. 112

    …FDA has known for many years that aluminum can be dangerous. For example, some infants require parenteral nourishment (administered by intravenous injection). All parenteral nutrition formulas contain aluminum. According to the FDA, ‘when medication and nutrition are administered orally, the gastrointestinal tract acts as an efficient barrier to the absorption of aluminum, and relatively little ingested aluminum actually reaches body tissues. However, parenterally administered drug products containing aluminum bypass the protective mechanism of the gastrointestinal tract and aluminum circulates and is deposited in human tissues’.65” Pg. 115

    • Richard Nikoley on February 27, 2017 at 09:05

      Getting out of bed in the morning is not safe.

      In fact, being born is not safe, nor is living a life. You’re using bullshit, dumb “arguments,” Louise. Still not interested. You go ahead and live by faith in your catechisms.

    • Paul on February 27, 2017 at 14:00

      Louise,

      How about we start with some facts instead of toxicity theories of harm.

      Please provide the reported incidence of vaccine related harm, and then within that the proportion caused by mercury and aluminum.

      Should be pretty straightforward given how dangerous you keep saying these substances are.

      Just the reported data Louise.

      Thanks Paul

  5. Louise S on February 27, 2017 at 10:34

    • Richard Nikoley on February 27, 2017 at 11:50

      Another BS “argument.”

    • Louise S on March 1, 2017 at 07:09

      Just keep informing yourself through the MSM Paul. They will tell you everything they think you need to know.

    • paul on March 1, 2017 at 14:04

      Louise,

      Ok. So the facts are off the table.

      When the observable world around me does not conform with my “beliefs”, I sincerely do my best to revise my beliefs and reconcile the gap between my beliefs and observable reality.

      If you believe the schedule of vaccinations is maintained via a worldwide pervasive medical conspiracy, with a complicit media and government then any information that contradicts your views on danger and efficacy becomes neatly partitioned into “propaganda” perpetuating that conspiracy.

      Hopefully you and your anti vaccination Crüe (raw food vegans, nutritionists, healers, naturopaths, homeopaths etc, who fear toxins) along with the rich out of touch celebrities who believe that success on youtube and Instagram give them a credible basis to speak on medical issues and the window that could be opening under trump to repeal vaccinations give you your outcomes.

      I am sure organic food, probiotics and the freedom from vaccination damage will usher in a world wide health utopia free from illness and autism

    • Richard Nikoley on March 1, 2017 at 14:41

      Correct, Paul. Apparently, because everyone is wrong sometimes, it gives us the luxury of proclaiming anything wrong we want, because they have been wrong before.

      Convenient.

      This is prescient.

  6. Louise S on March 2, 2017 at 07:57

    “…the window that could be opening under trump to repeal vaccinations…”. He’s not repealing vaccinations, he wants them made safer by removing the mercury and aluminum.

    It’s all just black a white for you both, isn’t it. No middle ground.

    1. YALE SCIENTISTS FIND STRONG ASSOCIATION BETWEEN VACCINATIONS AND ANOREXIA, OCD, AND ANXIETY DISORDER

    Temporal Association of Certain Neuropsychiatric Disorders Following Vaccination of Children and Adolescents: A Pilot Case-Control Study Frontiers in Psychiatry, January 2017, Douglas L. Leslie, Robert A. Kobre, Brian J. Richmand

    Summary: “Subjects with newly diagnosed anorexia nervosa were more likely than controls to have had any vaccination in the previous 3 months [hazard ratio (HR) 1.80, 95% confidence interval 1.21-2.68]. Influenza vaccinations during the prior 3, 6, and 12 months were also associated with incident diagnoses of AN, OCD, and an anxiety disorder. Several other associations were also significant with HRs greater than 1.40 (hepatitis A with OCD and AN; hepatitis B with AN; and meningitis with AN and chronic tic disorder). This pilot epidemiologic analysis implies that the onset of some neuropsychiatric disorders may be temporally related to prior vaccinations in a subset of individuals.”

    2. ITALIAN SCIENTISTS FIND UNEXPECTED CONTAMINANTS IN ALL PEDIATRIC VACCINES, INCLUDING LEAD, STAINLESS STEEL, TUNGSTEN, IRON, AND CHROMIUM

    New Quality-Control Investigations on Vaccines: Micro- and Nanocontamination International Journal of Vaccines and Vaccination, January 2017, Dr. Antonietta M. Gatti, Stefano Montanari

    Summary: Scientists found contaminants in all vaccines that are not listed on the label of the vaccines. “The analyses carried out show that in all samples checked vaccines contain non biocompatible and bio-persistent foreign bodies which are not declared by the Producers, against which the body reacts in any case. This new investigation represents a new quality control that can be adopted to assess the safety of a vaccine. Our hypothesis is that this contamination is unintentional, since it is probably due to polluted components or procedures of industrial processes (e.g. filtrations) used to produce vaccines, not investigated and not detected by the Producers. If our hypothesis is actually the case, a close inspection of the working places and the full knowledge of the whole procedure of vaccine preparation would probably allow to eliminate the problem.”

    3. ISRAELI AND ITALIAN SCIENTISTS WARN THAT VACCINE ADJUVANTS (ALUMINUM) ARE CAUSING A WIDE-RANGE OF AUTOIMMUNE CONDITIONS, INCLUDING SJOGREN’S SYNDROME

    Autoimmune/Inflammatory Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants and Sjogren’s Syndrome IMAJ VOL 18, March-April 2016, Serena Colafrancesco, Carlo Perricone, Yehuda Shoenfeld

    Summary: “Several case reports have suggested that both vaccines and silicone may trigger the development of SS [Sjo?gren’s syndrome, a chronic systemic autoimmune inflammatory condition involving the exocrine glands]. Aluminum is one of the principal adjuvants used in vaccine formulation and may be responsible for the development of ASIA syndrome. It seems that its ability to behave as an adjuvant might be related to evidence that aluminum salts seem to both induce the activation of dendritic cells and complement components and increase the level of chemokine secretion at the injection site… other vaccines including Bacillus Calmette Gue?rin (BCG), hepatitis A and/or B and human papillomavirus, should be avoided or considered only in selected patients… There is considerable evidence raising the possibility of vaccine-triggered autoimmunity”

    4. INFANTS VACCINATED WITH MULTIPLE VACCINES AT ONCE HAVE MUCH HIGHER HOSPITALIZATIONS AND DEATH RATES THAN INFANTS WHO RECEIVE FEWER SIMULTANEOUS VACCINES

    Combining Childhood Vaccines at One Visit Is Not Safe Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons, Summer 2016, Neil Z. Miller

    Summary: “Our study showed that infants who receive several vaccines concurrently, as recommended by CDC, are significantly more likely to be hospitalized or die when compared with infants who receive fewer vaccines simultaneously. It also showed that reported adverse effects were more likely to lead to hospitalization or death in younger infants. The safety of CDC’s childhood vaccination schedule was never affirmed in clinical studies. Vaccines are administered to millions of infants every year, yet health authorities have no scientific data from synergistic toxicity studies on all combinations of vaccines that infants are likely to receive. National vaccination campaigns must be supported by scientific evidence.”

    5. ISRAELI, CANADIAN, AND COLOMBIAN SCIENTISTS SHOW THAT GARDASIL VACCINE TRIGGERS BRAIN INFLAMMATION AND AUTOIMMUNITY IN MICE

    Behavioral abnormalities in female mice following administration of aluminum adjuvants and the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine Gardasil Immunol Res, July 2016, Rotem Inbar, Ronen Weiss, Lucija Tomljenovic, Maria-Teresa Arango, Yael Deri, Christopher A, Shaw, Joab Chapman, Miri Blank, Yehuda Shoenfeld

    Summary: “Vaccine adjuvants and vaccines may induce autoimmune and inflammatory manifestations in susceptible individuals. To date most human vaccine trials utilize aluminum (Al) adjuvants as placebos despite much evidence showing that Al in vaccine-relevant exposures can be toxic to humans and animals…It appears that Gardasil via its Al adjuvant and HPV antigens has the ability to trigger neuroinflammation and autoimmune reactions, further leading to behavioral changes…In light of these findings, this study highlights the necessity of proceeding with caution with respect to further mass-immunization practices with a vaccine of yet unproven long-term clinical benefit in cervical cancer prevention”

    6. ALUMINUM IN VACCINES IS HIGHLY NEUROTOXIC AND EXPOSURE LEVELS GIVEN TO INFANTS HAVE DRAMATICALLY INCREASED

    Aluminum in Childhood Vaccines Is Unsafe Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons, Winter 2016, Neil Z. Miller

    Summary: “Infants and young children throughout the world receive high quantities of aluminum from multiple inoculations. Incremental changes to the vaccination schedule during the past several years significantly increased the quantity of aluminum in childhood shots. Numerous studies provide compelling evidence that injected aluminum can be detrimental to health. Aluminum is capable of remaining in cells long after vaccination and may cause neurologic and autoimmune disorders. During early development, the child’s brain is more susceptible to toxins and the kidneys are less able to eliminate them. Thus, children have a greater risk than adults of adverse reactions to aluminum in vaccines. Millions of children every year are injected with vaccines containing mercury and aluminum despite well-established experimental evidence of the potential for additive or synergistic toxicity when an organism is exposed to two or more toxic metals.”

    7. ALZHEIMER’S VICTIMS HAVE VERY HIGH BRAIN ALUMINUM LEVELS, A POTENT NEUROTOXIN

    Aluminium in brain tissue in familial Alzheimer’s disease Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology, November 2016, Ambreen Mirza, Andrew King, Claire Troakes, Christopher Exley

    Summary: “Aluminium has been shown to be present in brain tissue in sporadic Alzheimer’s disease. 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??g/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. We have supported our quantitative analyses using a novel method of aluminium-selective fluorescence microscopy to visualise aluminium in all lobes of every brain investigated. The unique quantitative data and the stunning images of aluminium in familial Alzheimer’s disease brain tissue raise the spectre of aluminium’s role in this devastating disease.”

    8. VACCINES IMPLICATED IN EPIDEMIC OF FOOD ALLERGIES

    Evidence that Food Proteins in Vaccines Cause the Development of Food Allergies and Its Implications for Vaccine Policy Journal of Developing Drugs, 2015, Vinu Arumugham

    Summary: “Numerous studies have demonstrated that food proteins contained in vaccines/injections induce food allergy. The IOM’s authoritative report has concluded the same. Allergen quantities in vaccines are unregulated. Today kids are more atopic. C-section births bias the newborn’s immune system towards IgE synthesis due to sub-optimal gut microbiome [19]. C-section birth rates have gone up 50% in the last few decades. The vaccine schedule has increased the number of vaccine shots to 30-40 and up to five vaccines are simultaneously administered to children. Vaccines also contain adjuvants such as aluminum compounds and pertussis toxin that bias towards IgE synthesis. Given these conditions, the predictable and observed outcome is a food allergy epidemic.”

    9. CHINESE SCIENTISTS FIND MICE INJECTED WITH THIMEROSAL (VACCINE MERCURY) HAVE BEHAVIORAL IMPAIRMENTS SIMILAR TO AUTISM

    Transcriptomic Analyses of Neurotoxic Effects in Mouse Brain After Intermittent Neonatal Administration of Thimerosal, Toxicological Sciences, March 2014, Xialong Li, Fengqin Qu, Wenjuan Xe, Fengli Wang, Hongmei Lui

    Summary: “Thimerosal-treated mice exhibited neural development delay, social interaction deficiency, and inclination of depression. Apparent neuropathological changes were also observed in adult mice neonatally treated with thimerosal. High-throughput RNA sequencing of autistic-behaved mice brains revealed the alternation of a number of canonical path- ways involving neuronal development, neuronal synaptic function, and the dysregulation of endocrine system.”

    10. NEURODEVELOPMENTAL DISORDERS ARE MUCH MORE COMMON IN CHILDREN WHO RECEIVED MERCURY-CONTAINING VACCINES

    A Dose-Response Relationship between Organic Mercury Exposure from Thimerosal-Containing Vaccines and Neurodevelopmental Disorders Int. J. Environ. Res. Public Health, 2014, David A. Geier, Brian S. Hooker, Janet K. Kern, Paul G. King, Lisa K. Sykes and Mark R. Geier

    Summary: “On a per microgram of organic-Hg basis, PDD (odds ratio (OR) = 1.054), specific developmental delay (OR = 1.035), tic disorder (OR = 1.034) and hyperkinetic syndrome of childhood (OR = 1.05) cases were significantly more likely than controls to receive increased organic-Hg exposure. This study provides new epidemiological evidence supporting a significant relationship between increasing organic-Hg exposure from TCVs and the subsequent risk of an ND diagnosis.”

    11. UC-BOULDER PROFESSOR: THE AUTISM EPIDEMIC IS REAL AND THEREFORE MUST BE THE PRODUCT OF AN ENVIRONMENTAL FACTOR

    A comparison of temporal trends in United States autism prevalence to trends in suspected environmental factors Environmental Health, 2014, Cynthia D Nevison

    Summary: “Diagnosed autism prevalence has risen dramatically in the U.S over the last several decades and continued to trend upward as of birth year 2005. The increase is mainly real and has occurred mostly since the late 1980s.”

    12. FULLY VACCINATED CHILDREN REQUIRE MUCH MORE EMERGENCY CARE THAN UNDERVACCINATED CHILDREN

    A Population-Based Cohort Study of Undervaccination in 8 Managed Care Organizations Across the United States JAMA Pediatrics, January 2013, Jason M. Glanz, PhD; Sophia R. Newcomer, MPH; Komal J. Narwaney, MD, PhD; Simon J. Hambidge, MD, PhD; Matthew F. Daley, MD; Nicole M. Wagner, MPH

    Summary: “Children who were undervaccinated because of pa- rental choice had lower rates of outpatient visits, lower rates of ED [emergency room] encounters.. undervaccinated children had lower outpatient visit rates compared with children who were age-appropriately vaccinated.”

    13. ISRAELI AND ITALIAN RESEARCHERS DEMONSTRATE THAT EXPOSURE TO ALUMINUM IN VACCINES CAN LEAD TO AUTOIMMUNE AND BRAIN DYSFUNCTION

    Autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA) 2013: Unveiling the pathogenic, clinical and diagnostic aspects Journal of Autoimmunity, October 2013, Carlo Perricone, Serena Colafrancesco, Roei D. Mazor, Alessandra Soriano, Yehuda Shoenfeld

    Summary: “The data herein illustrate the critical role of environmental factors in the induction of autoimmunity. Indeed, it is the interplay of genetic susceptibility and environment that is the major player for the initiation of breach of tolerance. Several neurologic demyelinating diseases have been reported following vaccination, the main being Guillaine Barre? syndrome (GBS). Another demyelinating disease associated with vaccines is the acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM). This is an inflammatory disease of the central nervous system frequently occurring post-vaccination. Rabies, diphtheria tetanus polio, smallpox, measles, mumps, rubella, Japanese B encephalitis, pertussis, influ-enza, hepatitis B, and the Hog vaccines have been called to be involved.”

    14. CANADIAN RESEARCHERS: ALUMINUM IN VACCINES CAN CAUSE BOTH AUTOIMMUNITY AND NEUROLOGICAL DAMAGE

    Aluminum in the central nervous system (CNS): toxicity in humans and animals, vaccine adjuvants, and autoimmunity Immunol Res, 2013, Chris Shaw, L. Tomljenovic

    Summary: “In young children, a highly significant correlation exists between the number of pediatric aluminum-adjuvanted vaccines administered and the rate of autism spectrum disorders. Many of the features of aluminum- induced neurotoxicity may arise, in part, from autoimmune reactions, as part of the ASIA syndrome. Aluminum is added to vaccines to help the vaccine work more effectively, but unlike dietary aluminum which will usually clear rapidly from the body, aluminum used in vaccines and injected is designed to provide a long-lasting cellular exposure. Thus, the problem with vaccine- derived aluminum is really twofold: It drives the immune response even in the absence of a viral or bacterial threat and it can make its way into the central nervous system. It is not really a matter of much debate that aluminum in various forms can be neurotoxic.”

    15. SCIENTISTS FROM MEXICO AND ISRAEL EXPLAIN ADJUVANTS (ALUMINUM) USED IN VACCINES CAN INDUCE AUTOIMMUNITY

    Autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (Shoenfeld’s syndrome): clinical and immunological spectrum Expert Rev. Clin. Immunol. 2013 Olga Vera-Lastra, Gabriela Medina, Maria Del-Pilar Cruz Dominguez, Luis J Jara

    Summary: “The activation of the immune system by adjuvants, a desirable effect, could trigger manifestations of autoimmunity or autoimmune disease. Recently, a new syndrome was introduced, autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA), that includes postvaccination phenomena, macrophagic myofasciitis, Gulf War syndrome and siliconosis. Various adjuvants used in vaccines enhance a specific immune response against antigens and may produce autoimmunity and AID both in experimental models and humans. The clinical and laboratory data support an association between adjuvants and autoimmune diseases.”

    16. INFANTS RECEIVING MERCURY-CONTAINING VACCINES HAD MUCH HIGHER RATES OF AUTISM THAN INFANTS RECEIVING VACCINES WITHOUT MERCURY

    A two-phase study evaluating the relationship between Thimerosal-containing vaccine administration and the risk for an autism spectrum disorder diagnosis in the United States Translational Neurodegeneration, David A. Geier, Brian S. Hooker, Janet K. Kern, Paul G. King, Lisa K. Sykes, Mark R. Geier

    Summary: “The present study provides new epidemiological evidence supporting an association between increasing organic-Hg [mercury] exposure from Thimerosal-containing childhood vaccines and the subsequent risk of ASD [autism] diagnosis.”

    17. BRITISH SCIENTISTS SOUNDS THE ALARM ON ALUMINUM TOXICITY AND QUESTIONS LACK OF RESEARCH ON ALUMINUM USED IN VACCINES

    Human exposure to aluminium Environmental Science Processes & Impacts, 2013, Christopher Exley

    Summary: “The immunopotency of aluminium has been known for at least 100 years and still today forms the basis for the use of aluminium salts as adjuvants in vaccinations and allergy therapies. What is then surprising is the uncertainty regarding their mechanism of action and burgeoning evidence of their toxicity in potentially susceptible individuals.”

    18. ISRAELI, ITALIAN, AND CANADIAN RESEARCHERS TIE HPV VACCINE TO PRIMARY OVARIAN FAILURE

    Human Papilloma Virus Vaccine and Primary Ovarian Failure: Another Facet of the Autoimmune/Inflammatory Syndrome Induced by Adjuvants American Journal of Reproductive Immunology, 2013, Selena Colafrancesco, Carlo Perricone, Lucija Tomljenovic, Yehuda Shoenfeld

    Summary: “We documented here the evidence of the potential of the HPV vaccine to trigger a life-disabling autoimmune condition. The increasing number of similar reports of post HPV vaccine-linked autoimmunity and the uncertainty of long-term clinical benefits of HPV vaccination are a matter of public health that warrants further rigorous inquiry.”

      “Unless and until the media come to grips with what they momentarily grasped in the immediate aftermath of the election—that mainstream journalists are largely out of touch with vast swathes of America56—the true power of journalism will not be realized.”

      One topic the new president may test journalists on is vaccines. Candidate Trump expressed doubts about vaccine policy,7 and there is reason to think a “vaccine safety commission” may be in the works.8

      Delicate balance

      Good journalism on this topic will require abandoning current practices of avoiding interviewing, understanding, and presenting critical voices out of fear that expressing any criticism amounts to presenting a “false balance” that will result in health scares.

      It does matter if the vast majority of doctors or scientists agree on something. But medical journalists should be among the first to realize that while evidence matters, so too do the legitimate concerns of patients. And if patients have concerns, doubts, or suspicions—for example, about the safety of vaccines, this does not mean they are “anti-vaccine.” Anti-vaccine positions certainly exist in the world, but approaches that label anybody and everybody who raises questions about the right headedness of current vaccine policies—myself included9—as “anti-vaccine” fail on several accounts.

      Firstly, they fail to accurately characterize the nature of the concern. Many parents of children with developmental disorders who question the role of vaccines had their children vaccinated.

      Anti-vaccination is an ideology, ….

      people who have their children vaccinated seem unlikely candidates for the title.”

      “Secondly, they lump all vaccines together as if the decision about risks and benefits is the same irrespective of disease—polio, pertussis, smallpox, mumps, diphtheria, hepatitis B, influenza, varicella, HPV, Japanese encephalitis—or vaccine type—live attenuated, inactivated whole cell, split virus, high dose, low dose, adjuvanted, monovalent, polyvalent, etc. This seems about as intelligent as categorizing people into “pro-drug” and “anti-drug” camps depending on whether they have ever voiced concern over the potential side effects of any drug.”

      “Thirdly, labeling people concerned about the safety of vaccines as “anti-vaccine” risks entrenching positions. The label (or its derogatory derivative “anti-vaxxer”) is a form of attack. It stigmatizes the mere act of even asking an open question about what is known and unknown about the safety of vaccines.”

      “Fourthly, the label too quickly assumes that there are “two sides” to every question, and that the “two sides” are polar opposites. This “you’re either with us or against us” thinking is unfit for medicine.”

      Louise,

      I finally get it. You are a very smart person trolling people like me by pretending you are a very stupid person who is against vaccinations. I love the way you pretended to have a background in science and then paste walls of text unrelated to the debate or facts around vaccines on here to bait people like me.

      I am sorry and I am an idiot.

      I actually thought for a while you were serious.

      Well done.

      I have not been trolled this badly in my life.

      You madam I tip my hat off to.

      Paul d.

      Richard I have been trolled badly on your blog.

      Oh well. I have learnt from this one.

      Louise 1. Paul 0

      Haha.

      I can’t believe how badly I got sucked in.
