Vitamin D, Fluoride, and Vaccines: The Common Theme

January 18, 2011

drug money
If government is going to act as a scientific arbiter, it needs to have clean hands. That means getting private commercial interests out of the decision-making process.

In this week’s vitamin D update, we discussed the glaring conflict of interest in the recent IOM report on vitamin D. Unfortunately this is not an isolated case. Consider also the recent fluoride debacle.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention calls fluoride in drinking water “one of the ten great public health achievements of the 20th century,” except earlier this month they stated that the levels they previously mandated are too high, and HHS and EPA are taking steps to prevent excessive exposure to it. Children’s teeth are getting pitted and turning black or brown from dental fluorosis. An increasing number of scientists and health professionals argue that fluoride exposure has a negative impact on the whole body, including joint pain, hypothyroidism, kidney and liver damage, and the possibility of bone cancer.
What led to the high fluoride levels initially recommended? The government was spurred on by private interests wanting to sell it—fluoride is a by-product from the aluminum smelting process! This is often the problem: private interests influencing the government at the people’s expense. It’s crony capitalism at its most destructive.
This approach is especially worrisome with regard to vaccines, especially flu vaccines. The government has increasingly become a full partner with pharmaceutical companies in the production of vaccines, which creates a huge conflict of interest: government produces, distributes, recommends, evaluates, requires by law in the case of kids, and then judges the results. No wonder the government won’t tell us how many cases of flu occur in vaccinated individuals. Apparently it doesn’t think that information is worth gathering. No wonder. It is likely to be very embarrassing.
We need to stop the censorship of scientific evidence—it’s the only way the truth will come out. Dr. Andrew Wakefield, the author of the controversial British study linking autism and vaccines, was accused this month by the British Medical Journal of perpetrating an elaborate fraud. It was an undeniably small study—only twelve patients. And while his basic premise still has support, there has been a concerted effort to destroy Dr. Wakefield and make anyone afraid to touch the issue for the foreseeable future.
Wakefield’s study should absolutely be criticized, but in an open, collegial, and academic manner. Don’t like the results? See procedural errors? Fine, but the answer is to do more scientific research on the subject, not less. Do more studies, with a broader patient sampling! This is what the peer-review process—the whole scientific method—is all about. If the MMR vaccine is safe for children, then demonstrate it. The treatment of Dr. Wakefield is too much like the Salem Witch trials for our comfort.

  1. What Big Pharma et al are doing to to Dr. Wakefield is evil on parade. And those great reporters of truth, the mainstream media, jump in with glee with no mention of who, what or why.

    • Smith says:

      Before I would trust the FDA with even ONE MORE REGULATION, get the big pharma out of the FDA…FDA employees rule in favor of BIG PHARMA over consumers then when their time is up at FDA they have a cush job at the pharmaceuticals. This is corruption of the worst kind.
      Now the FDA and government are now trying to put the skids on OUR VITAMINS!
      Fluoride IS harmful to the thyroid, and i believe it’s one of the main reasons people are so obese.
      Also they removed IODINE out of our BREADs…it was there in the 60’s they replaced the iodine with bromines that’s also working on thyroid.
      Anyone notice that since the US gov change the food pyramid amerians are fatter than ever…thanks also to the LOW FAT FAT FREE INSANITY…plus the addition of high fructose corn syrup, 20 times sweeter than suger, you think that won’t increase diabetes but the big PHARMA loves it they want every man woman and child on 3 to 12 daily drugs.
      Whatever did our parents do without statin cholesterol meds, even the drug companies tell us that they do not prevent heart attack or stroke but the doctros still tell us that to try to get us to take the.
      BTW we had dessert every night and we were all SLIM in the 60’s the entire family.

  2. Marianne D. says:

    We need Little Pharma et al and more Dr. Wakefields.

  3. glenn sattelberg says:

    Why are they medicating my entire city with flouride without a Dr. prescription. No one is testing my family to see if they are getting the correct dose. Do we know how much of the flouride accctually stays on the enamal vs. how much goes into the stomach. Oh! are these questions too hard for the ADA to answer?

  4. Cheryl says:

    Just like with all truth-tellers, Dr. Wakefield is being “neutralized” big time!!!! Just like they’re going after Julian Assange. The U.S. is being held hostage by the drug companies, insurance companies, oil, the big banks, Wall Street and they will do everything, even possibly have people “eliminated” in an effort to protect their profits and their secrets. They have lied to us and people have followed like sheep, at the expense of our health and that of our children and grandchildren. We need to start trying to fight back to make changes where they can be made and to keep an open mind and use our good common sense, by looking at what’s going on around us, the effects the drugs and the environment have on our health, etc.

  5. Carol says:

    Dr. Wakefield should be charged and tried for his actions. What he did is not in the name of science.

  6. Gail J says:

    How are we going to break out of this cycle of having our rights taken from us? we have a right to the information that they are sweeping under the carpet. we have a right to know the results of the studies that are being done that the gov, big pharma and big business are hiding from us….what can we do as citizens to DEMAND healthy food, vitamins and herbs and the right to grow our own, shop at farmer’s markets and anything else that is a God given right! how are we going to wake all the people of this country up and have everyone saying “no.” i think we are making inroads in the flu vaccine…fewer and fewer people are taking it this year than last…it’s just a small piece of an enormous pie!

    • Lou says:

      Yes the “vaccine” deadly scam is KEY. I was just on a pro vaccination web site and was pleasantly surprised to see the poll showed well over half stated they believed “vaccination” was not proven safe and effective. WOW!
      Once a person understands that his “government” and the “Medical Industry” has been harming, killing and perhaps the worst inducing Autism and multiple degenerative disease in our children that “government” and “Medical Industry” has an implacable enemy that to their dying day will not forget the crimes of “government” and “medical Industry”.
      The “government” and “Medical Industry” KNOWS, they KNOW.
      It is time we ALL KNOW.

  7. Rosemarie says:

    The people need to wake up and get involved, is everyone in a coma?

  8. bobi burke says:

    Congratulations to Dr. Wakefield and other like him….taking on the big money pharmaceuticals is very courageous and i imagine dangerous at times…keep up the good work we all appreciate what you are doing for all of us.

  9. This news about Dr Wakefield is just noise. The masses are voting with their feet …and alternative medicine is winning. See what I wrote about it on my blog.

  10. jim says:

    You think it is bad that the CDC is giving us flouride? Me too. However, the CDC is doing wayyyy more damage by covering up a new virus(XMRV) that causes neuroimmune disease(autism, CFS, cancers). See Whittemore Peterson Institues findings on XMRV, then look at what the Alter/Lo of the FDA and NIH found. THen look at the conflicting negative studies by the CDC and the UK’s MRC. THe testing methods by the CDC and UK are sloppy and they obfuscating good science. This whole cover up has been going on fo over 20 years. See also Hillary johnson’s “Osler’s Web”.

    • Lou says:

      Yes the nail in the “government” coffin is that HHS, NIH, CDC and other organs of “government” have covered up the true DOD origins of AIDS since the AIDS bio-weapon was proposed to a congressional committee in 1969.
      “There are two things about the biological agent field I would like to mention. One is the possibility of technological surprise. Molecular biology is a field that is advancing very rapidly, and eminent biologists believe that within a period of 5 to 10 years it would be possible to produce a synthetic biological agent, an agent that does not naturally exist and for which no natural immunity could have been acquired.” Dr. Donald MacArthur U.S. Military biowar research to Congressmen monitoring US biological weapons development June 9 1969

  11. Gracie says:

    “Big Pharma” will never stop trying to control or eliminate “Little Pharma”. Yes, we need the independents, and independent scientific studies as well. When the govt. gets involved, we don’t get the real truth or facts, we get what is paid for…

  12. Regina says:

    I am so not surprised to hear this. I have Chronic Lyme Disease and the same things are happening surrounding Lyme disease as with the other things mentioned in this article. In fact, just a couple of months ago, the IOM did the same thing with Lyme Disease. When they did their investigation on Lyme disease, they did not allow those with conflicting points of view to even testify at their hearings. It’s a disgrace.
    I wonder how much these companies spend? That never makes sense to me – when insurance co’s and drug co’s use millions of dollars to stop something from “happening” that they don’t like or making something happen for their own interests – instead that money could surely be put to better use. No wonder the cost of insurance and drugs is so high. We are paying to get screwed in the end. No pun intended.

    • Lou says:

      Have you had a test for mycoplasma? If not please do IMO. Mycoplasma is often associated with Lyme Disease.
      Very high body levels of Vitamin D seem IMO to be very protective against mycoplasma
      “Doctor David Williams cites a recent study in the USA in which 28 people suffering from severe Lime Disease were treated for 6 months. 14 of the patients received the standard doses of antibiotics. The other 14 took doses of Cat’s Claw, an herb from the Brazilian rainforest with a legendary reputation. The result? Three of the fourteen who took antibiotics showed slight improvement. But ALL of the 14 who took Cat’s Claw showed “dramatic improvement.” Indeed, 12 of the 14 were tested at the end of six months, and NO trace of LD remained!” Note lime disease is often a symptom of a mycoplasma infection
      “Mycoplasma is the co-factor that alters the human immune system and opens the door for the autoimmune degenerative diseases such as AIDS, Alzheimer’s disease, Bi-Polar Disease, Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, Chronic Fatigue/ Myalgic Encephalomyelitis, Diabetes Type One, Fibromyalgia, Huntington’s disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease.” Doctor Harold Clark
      “According to Dr Shyh-Ching Lo, senior researcher at The Armed Forces Institute of Pathology and one of America’s top mycoplasma researchers, this disease agent causes many illnesses including AIDS, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, Crohn’s colitis, Type I diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Wegener’s disease and collagen-vascular diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and Alzheimer’s. I have all the official documents to prove that mycoplasma is the disease agent in chronic fatigue syndrome/fibromyalgia as well as in AIDS, multiple sclerosis and many other illnesses.” Donald W. Scott MA

  13. MonteK says:

    One of the biggest problems with our Government is that they allow Big Corporations to basically do whatever they want. Fluoride is banned in 98% of Europe. Why do you think it says on the package if too much is swallowed go to the emergency room? Fluoride does nothing in regards to preventing tooth decay.

  14. David Getoff says:

    We obviously have a very free country (Hah). It is obvious due to the fact that paid liars are TOTALLY FREE to make comments in national print and TV media which seek to defame exceptional scientists such as Dr. Andrew Wakefield. He on the other hand, is not quite as free to counter these arguments, which, although presented as facts, ar as far from being factual as you can get. This nonsense infuriated me so much that I recorded and MP3 response in the MP3 section of my professional web site

  15. Glen Ihrig says:

    These are great examples of how, and why government is broken. We must down size big government. See

    • Lou says:

      HHS is also an impossibly corrupt and eugenic organization controlled at its highest political levels by the eugenic Rockefeller clan. HHS MUST GO!

    • Frances in California says:

      I’m sorry, Glen: You have it exactly backwards. The problem isn’t the size of Gov’t.; it’s that there is no REGULATION of for-profit health corps. . . or are you secretly one of their trolls?

  16. hank w. says:

    Flouride is an endocrine disruptor that suppresses thyroid function and is one of the causes of obesity…it’s also toxic…don’t drink it if you can afford not to. Government is sitting on it’s hands and/or caving in to private interests.

  17. Pygmy says:

    Can I just add GMO’s to the list of phony scientific “achievements”? Genetically modified crops have failed on all counts- they don’t produce higher yields and have increased the use of pesticides. And there are well documented negative impacts on human, animal, plant and soil health because of them. Yet the government forces them on us like a schoolyard dope pusher, even “requiring” them in negotiations with other countries in trade and treaty agreements!

  18. Anna C says:

    Sorry folks, but I think Dr. Wakefield acted very selfishly in the manner in which he did his research and then published it. He knew what proper research entailed and he didn’t do it. He gained honor and recognition when the Lancet published his badly researched paper.
    Measles, pertussis, diptheria, tetanus, polio, HIB … these diseases KILL CHILDREN. Rubella DEFORMS CHILDREN. Mumps STERILIZES CHILDREN.
    Parents who choose not to vaccinate their children have not, in their lifetimes, seen these illnesses or the devastation in their wake.
    Consider the auto restraint “controversy” as an analogy:
    Annually, tens of thousands of Americans die from motor vehicle collisions. It has been determined and turned into common knowledge that restraining car occupants with seatbelts and carseats increases the chances of survival from car crashes.
    Every once in awhile, deadly situations may arise from the auto occupant being restrained. While preventing injuries and deaths from projectile motion, seat belts can be overly constricting in a crash, causing internal organ damage. Also, in (police) chases, explosions and fires, or water submersion, rapid escape from the vehicle is impeded by seat restraints.
    I have known people who refused to put their children in car seats and refused to wear seat belts because they knew of a rare situation where someone died – presumably from auto restraints.
    So, will you refrain from using seatbelts and carseats now? Adverse reactions have to be put into perspective.

    • Kelli says:

      Yeah, they killed children back at the turn of the century when there was horse crap in the streets, no flushing toilets, no handsoap, and 2 world wars were making the world a very unstable place. Vaccines did not save mankind. Vaccines are not responsible for the longer lifespans. The improvement in nutrition, sanitation, and stability is what keeps people from being vulnerable to infections. It is terrain that matters not the germs.
      Indeed, adverse reactions need to be considered such as when thousands of children are injured and killed by vaccines.
      Nothing in “modern” medicine is necessary and we need to always remind people of that.

      • Anna C says:

        Lou and Kelli,
        So, don’t get vaccinated if/when you get bitten by a potentially rabid animal.
        I was hospitalized with the measles in the 1950s requiring blood transfusions when I was 10 months old.
        I remember polio epidemics as a child in the 1950s, before the polio vaccines.
        I remember deformed children born to mothers who had been exposed to rubella in the 1960s. I also believe, however, that rubella was still a leading cause of miscarriage in the 1960s.
        Dick Van Dyke’s granddaughter died from a complication from chicken pox in the 1980s in Cleveland.
        Note that “influenza and pneumonia” are categorized together in the major causes of death in this mortality chart:
        During flu season, it’s difficult to separate the two illnesses, because flu evolves into pneumonia so easily.

        • Kelli says:

          Anna: Show me the studies that prove vaccines are safe and affective.
          Actually humans created rabies just like they created almost every other deadly supervirus. If it wasn’t fr vaccines and are endless parade of chemicals these super resistant viruses wouldn’t exist. A natural antibiotic like eucalyptus oil can get rid of many viruses and I’m sure it would work on rabies as well. And better yet you can’t form a resistance to it.
          And you probably ended up ill due to bad nutrition and sanitation which is the reason most people get ill. Those children in Africa become ill because their starving to death. You people never get it do you?
          An autistic child drains a family every bit as much as a child injured by an infectious illness.

        • Tabatha says:

          I realize your view is very different from mine, especially if you saw Polio firsthand and its lasting effects. But even if you assume that vaccines protects against serious diseases, know that not all vaccines do that. Tetnus is not a real concern, not for babies anyway and the vax can be given within 72 hrs of a bite. Hep B is a sexually transmitted disease and unless you or family are infected there is no reason to give a newborn that shot in the hospital. Chickenpox has a very low incident rate as far as childhood illnesses go, and it has lasting benefits your whole life long…As a parent, I will make that decision for my children. Not out of fear or being bullied, but by actual facts. And the fact is, vaccines come with just as many risks.

    • Lou says:

      Suppose every time you put on your seat belt you lost four ounces of blood would you put on your seat belt ten times a day?
      NO placebo controlled double blind testing of “vaccines” on humans is done for “ethical” reasons. Now the easiest thing in the world to do would be to devise an ethical testing of the “Seasonal Flu Vaccine”. So this “We cannot ethically clinically test vaccines” is just a blatant crock.
      So Mam please show me clinical evidence that “vaccines” are safe and that they do not do more harm than good.
      All the epidemiological and other evidence we have shows me “vaccines” are NOT safe and effective. NUMEROUS cover ups such as we are now seeing with Doctor Wakefield and the totally criminal Simpsonwood debacle of 2000 are required anytime evidence showing the evil of mass “vaccination” of healthy people leaks out.

    • Frances in California says:

      Dear Anna C.: You bring up good points about the disease now curable in the USA that weren’t at the time of the invention of some vaccines. Your position however, does not reflect the same clear-headedness as your points re biomed history. Vaccination has been absorbed into the maw of for-profit healthcare so actions like Dr. Wakefield’s become necessary IN SOME CASES. It’s not all black or white; it’s not all-or-nothing. Keep reading and being informed and staying involved. Thank you. Frances in California.

      • Anna C says:

        The diseases covered by vaccines are NOT “curable”, although time “cures” viruses one way or the other. Sure, we have Tamiflu to shorten the span of the flu, if it’s taken early enough. We can shorten the duration of chicken pox/shingles, and cold sores, but we can’t CURE them. Those viruses retract into nerve roots and stick with a person as long as s/he lives.
        Measles used to be a leading cause of blindness and other neurological problems. Google-up the problems of measles in Sub-Saharan Africa, where the WHO has not been able to get children vaccinated. HIB was the third leading cause of meningitis in babies until just about 20-30 years ago.
        Look up these diseases and their potential lifetime impacts on their victims. I would rather risk having an autistic child than a dead child or one that requires 24-hour nursing care for the rest of his/her life due to neurological devastation.
        This is the abstract of a study that I take seriously when questioning rising levels of autism and other diseases in the Western world:
        This IS black/white. This IS 100%. A quote from it, “Certain PCBs, organochlorine pesticides, PFCs, phenols, PBDEs, phthalates, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and perchlorate were detected in 99 to 100% of pregnant women.”
        Also, how many pregnant women and mothers of young children avoid GMOs?
        I am not denying the greed and opportunism of the large pharmaceutical companies. I AM saying that avoiding vaccines to prevent autism, is barking up the wrong tree.
        If you read the history of Dr. Wakefield’s research, you’ll learn that he was being at least as greedy and opportunistic as any pharm company. England retracted his medical license with good reason.

        • Lou says:

          Dear Anne
          Do you believe “vaccines” keep you from getting a virus? So you think “vaccines” keep the viruses you do get from becoming life long residents in your body?
          Please research this some. You will find the answer to both questions is NO.
          “Vaccination” does NOT confer IMMUNITY
          It is very important to understand the difference between your bodies natural process of acquired immunity and the artificial process of “vaccination”.
          When your body first comes into contact with a toxin or something harmful your body does not want inside it a very complex process begins. The first body cells that contact the toxin often produce a secretion which attempts to wash the toxin away. These cells are located in your nasal and oral cavities in your intestinal tract and elsewhere ALL throughout your body. Thus begins the process of immunization. The first cells to contact will communicate with the rest of your body such that your ENTIRE BODY is involved from the onset in the process of immunization. A very small part of the immunization process is producing antibodies to the toxin.
          Vaccination attempts to produce in a crude and dangerous manner antibodies and antibodies only. 99% of the immunization process is left undone. IMO producing the antibodies without the immunization process has been proven to perform a disastrous transformation on your immune system.
          A Healthy Immune System
          A healthy immune system consists of a passive part called your “Innate immune system” which is intended to passively fight threats. A healthy immune system also consists of another part called your “adaptive immune system” which contains the antibody function as well as many other functions with massive and powerful responses and is intended to fight for your life in deadly situations. The adaptive part should only be called upon when the innate part cannot handle the threat, for one reason your adaptive immune system produces MASSIVE free radicals and tissue destruction in its life and death struggle.
          IOW most of the time your passive part can handle the minor threats and your adaptive part sleeps way and does not disturb your body functions or tissue.
          Vaccination is proven to increase the expression of the adaptive part and suppress the innate part. This is exactly what you do NOT want and leads to all kinds of problems including the raft of auto immune diseases we have seen crop up in the last thirty years that the Rockefeller commanded CDC has foisted dozens and dozens of unnecessary “vaccinations” on us.
          “Vaccination” does NOT confer Herd Immunity
          “The original basis for herd immunity had nothing to do with vaccines. When sufficiently high numbers of people contracted the wild form of the disease and secured lifelong natural immunity, statisticians observed a protective effect in the community as described above. Policymakers eager to promote vaccines sought ammunition to increase vaccine uptake. Researchers assumed that vaccine-induced immunity would operate in the same manner as natural immunity and presumed that vaccines therefore would also create herd immunity. I am not a scientist but I know that vaccine-induced immunity is not remotely the same thing as natural immunity. Natural immunity is the gold standard. Vaccine-induced immunity is qualitatively different; for starters, vaccines do not always work and their protection wanes over time.” Louise Kuo Habakus
          “Vaccination” does NOT confer Herd Immunity. Herd immunity is conferred once many of the people develop “natural immunity” by contacting the disease NATURALLY. Incidentally “vaccination” does not confer individual immunity either. Immunity both personal and herd is a NATURAL process and can only be achieved by contacting a disease NATURALLY .

  19. Anna C says:

    I also believe that more legitimate research has to be done on the effects of genetically-modified-organisms on children. The reported incidence of autism in children has increased dramatically since GMOs were introduced in the mid-1990s.

    • Lou says:

      We really do not need more research on GMO “foods”. They are toxic in the extreme. Within hours of ingestion organ damage has been observed in several studies. GMO “foods” could NEVER be approved by any honest health authority.

  20. Bonnie Camo MD says:

    The flu vaccine is one of those that still contains thimerosol, a form of mercury, that has been linked with autism. Vaccine manufacturers have tried to discredit this link, (as well as witchhunting Dr Wakefield, who found another connection between vaccines and autism), but parents of children who developed autism shortly after receiving more than a dozen vaccines on their 18-month birthday know better. Many of these children have been helped to return toward normalcy by doctors following nutritional protocols of Defeat Autism Now (DAN!). Flu vaccines are unnecessary and not always effective. The flu can usually be relieved by taking homeopathic Oscillococcinum within 48 hours, and prevented by getting enough Vitamin D.

  21. Sofia Byrne says:

    I am dead set against unnecessary vaccines the school systems force people to vaccinate their children with. Young people are brain washed with this being the “BEST” solution for health.Little do they know they are just Ginny pigs for experiments for the government ( FDA).
    Fluoride in the water is just another test people had no say in.
    Our Pharmaceutical facilities have more control over what we do with our lives then the people themselves.

  22. CAM UNITED says:

    The Pharmaceutical Industry plans on monopolising Health Care, this is very evident. There are the constant attacks on Homeopathy and Dr. Wakefield, Codex Alimentarius and The Traditional Medicinal Products Directive. CAM practitioners and people who care about the future of Natural Medicine need desperately to come together to fight as one voice. A few practitioners have set up CAMUNITED. They have set up a page on Face Book and also a Cause on Facebook under the name CAMUNITED. They also Twitter under the name CAMUNITED. If we show unity – Herbalists, Homeopaths, TCM, Ayurveda, Reflexologists, Nutritionists etc. etc. if all the associations come together we can be a force to be reckoned with and surely to God our voice will be heard. ANH is doing a magnificent job, I thank you with all my heart, we can help them by showing our strength in numbers, we can support each other and join together.
    PLEASE spread the word, join the cause, the future of Natural Medicine depends on us.

  23. Nicole Denison says:

    According to the Fluoride Action Network, the fluoride added to our water is a byproduct of the phosphate fertilizer industry (although this is bad enough, and it contains arsenic and other toxins). When and where are byproducts of the aluminum smelting process used?

  24. Wendy DeJong says:

    You are right on by saying “We need to stop the censorship of scientific evidence—it’s the only way the truth will come out” The trouble is ‘they’ (big pharma & government) don’t wish for the truth to come out! Imagine what that would do to their golden goose.
    It’s time for people to wake up and take responsibility for their health, spend a little time doing the research for yourself…after all it is your health.
    Here is what one doctor who is against vaccines has to say;
    I want to raise doubt in your mind as to the safety, efficacy and moral issues of vaccines. My goal is for you to do further research into all of the vaccines, use libraries, bookstores, our internet web site ( and ask questions.
    Only after fully weighing the evidence can you make an informed decision. An informed consumer is a wise consumer. This journey is a beginning of better understanding the issues surrounding childhood vaccinations.
    The National Vital Statistics Reports compiled by the CDC show that only 1,138 deaths a year occur due to influenza alone (257 in 2001, 727 in 2002, 1,792 in 2003, 1,100 in 2004, and 1,812 in 2005). Bacterial pneumonia causes some 60,000 deaths each year, mainly in the winter, when surveillance data show increased prevalence of the flu virus.
    As one vaccine researcher puts it, “I think the evidence base [for mortality benefits from flu shots] we have leaned on is not valid” (Lancet Infect Dis 2007;7:658-66).
    There is also a lack of evidence that young children benefit from flu shots. A systematic review of 51 studies involving 260,000 children age 6 to 23 months found no evidence that the flu vaccine is any more effective than a placebo (Cochrane Database Syst Rev. 2006;1:CD004879).

  25. Lou says:

    “We need to stop the censorship of scientific evidence—it’s the only way the truth will come out.”
    As adults most of us who have studied Vitamin D, Fluoride and Vaccines scam in depth KNOW it is the SUPPRESSION of truth that has allowed these deadly scams to harm TENS of MILLIONS of people if not more; much of this harm has been terminal.
    An undertaking this MONSTROUS could not be accomplished without evil people in control of at least key parts of our government and Medical Industry.
    This issue is quickly coming to a head in the form of our Political Pandemic. Soon the same people who have been inducing autism in our children with vaccines and low vitamin D levels and ill health and death in 80% of our population with fluoride are going to DEMAND at the point of a gun that you be “vaccinated” for a bio-weapon created originally by NIH.
    We wake up or die.

  26. It is articles such as this that are criminal not Dr. Wakefield. If one actually reads what Dr. Wakefield published, you will see it is a poorly designed collection of twelve anecdotes called a case series. It forms no scientific conclusions. Yet, the media in either their ignorance or quest for sensationalism chose to present this as some form of conclusive proof as to a link between vaccine and autism. The result of this media induced hysteria has been the deaths of numerous children whom could have been saved by something as simple as vaccination. MMR vaccine’s safety has been demonstrated in large scale, rigorous scientific studies. To imply otherwise is dishonest. To continue perpetuating this hoax in articles such as this one is shameful.

    • Audrey says:

      Please provide a link to those “large scale, rigorous scientific studies” that you claim have demonstrated the MMR safety. Really, I mean it, please provide those links to those studies. I can’t wait.
      Because my child was permanently damaged by his MMR at 16 months in 1986, back before there was any controversy whatsoever. And because there was no controversy, my son’s pediatrician freely admitted that the measles he got exactly 10 days after the shot was a reaction to the shot. The fever and spots did go away, but unfortunately his explosive diarreah never did, and his health never returned, and his words never came back, and his formerly happy social self never returned, and his eye contact never returned. That is, not until we healed his gut and got the chemicals and fluoride out of his body, food, water and environment a decade and a half later—thanks to Dr. Wakefield and others. Two months after his MMR he had all the characteristics of autism; he was diagnosed officially at 26 months.
      At age 11, in 1996, when his measles booster was due, our pediatrician felt it would be too risky to revaccinate and said it wasn’t necessary anyway because he obviously already had the measles and therefore had immunity.
      Good thing, too, because at age 14, in 1999, his blood antibody count for measles showed a pretty shocking reality. On the lab’s Norm Range of 0-200, my son’s measles antibody count was 1,239!! That’s right, 13 years after his last exposure to the measles, his antibody count was 6 times higher than the highest end of the norm range! The lead researcher at the lab told me that someone with a current case of the wild measles would have a count of around 400-500. Translation: my son had a CHRONIC and RAGING measles infection inside his body without the spots of an acute infection. (He did have mysterious high fevers about 4 times a year.) He also tested positive for antibodies for myelin basic protein as well as neuron filament—in other words, his immune system was attacking his brain. This is all in his medical records.
      Thank God for doctors and researchers like Dr. Wakefield who take the time to listen to parents, treat the illnesses present in an autistic child rather than ignoring them, and have the courage to stand up against the slander and lies intent on keeping parents in the dark about the very real risks of vaccinations. This is about money, folks, plain and simple…and our children are the commodity.
      And I am eagerly awaiting those “large scale, rigorous scientific studies”, but everyone knows that whatever Sanford bothers to send will NOT show that the MMR or any other vaccine is safe for 100% of babies and will NOT compare fully vaccinated vs. vaccine-free children, which is the only truly scientific study that can demonstrate whether there is a connection between autism and vaccines.

        Thank god your son recovered and thank god Doctor Wakefield and others have found out WHY your son and MILLIONS of other helpless children who MUST TRUST we adults to protect them, have been brought down by these bio-weapons called “vaccines”
        Doctor Wakefield and others have discovered the measles virus living in their guts decades after their “measles vaccination” is NOT wild measles but the MEASLES VACCINE. Incidentally this measles vaccine virus is present in MANY 70 year old adults.
        It is my contention that “vaccination” harms each and every human “vaccinated”. For most the harm is not apparent but as Doctor Moulden has PROVEN if we look closely we often can SEE the harm or death; but seen or unseen the harm is there.
        Vaccine theory posits an attenuated virus will not act as an unattenuated virus. Clinical science shows this is often not the case. How can a supposed branch of medicine continue to operate on false premises.
        Folks the whole “vaccine deadly scam” operates on false premises and is condoned by false humans.
        “ALL vaccines are and have been causing ischemic (impaired blood flow) damages – to all – creating a plethora of chronic illnesses, disease, and in some instances…death. The injury from vaccination is additive, each vaccination further injures.” Doctor Andrew Moulden MD, PhD
        “John O’Leary, Ph.D., a world-class researcher and molecular biologist from Ireland, using state of the art sequencing technology, showed how he had found measles virus in the gut of 96% of autistic children, compared to 6.6% of normal children. This virus did not come from the natural disease; it came from the measles vaccine.”
        “Children with neurological disorders are often suffering from severe gastrointestinal distress and inflammation. A trigger of this inflammation and the resultant behaviors is the MMR vaccine.” Fourteen Studies

    Thank goodness for Dr. Mercola and William Douglas, many many more drs teaching us that drugs are not the answer…if they were there wouldn’t be diabetes.
    Drs STILL tell diabetics there is NO cure for diabetes..there is it’s called eat real food, cut down on grains, sugars, even fruit eat lots of fibers and make sure you get healthy fat daily like organic coconut oil ( UNPROCESSED ) and extra virgin olive oil…walk more, lift weights and exercise in 30 second “bursts” then slow down for a couple minutes

    fluoride is nothing but a toxic substance that has no use except to kill rodents.
    PS. The FDA SUCKS!

    For the last few years, there’s been a lot of political gums flapping about “TRANSPARENCY”, but I’ve yet to see anything of the sort. I’m getting very tired of all the examples of BLATANT conflicts of interests-more and more surfacing all the time. And it’s not about elephants or donkeys with me, it’s about certain well-placed & well funded people BUYING LEGISLATION.

    Fluoride is more poisonous than mercury, it cannot be dumped at sea. It’s produced from the aluminium industry and there is a connection to fertilisers. The Danes have a joke that the only part of the pig they dont use is the squeak, so big industry needs to get their last bucks from the waste of their aluminium work.
    It kills the thyroid – must have terrible effect on those who clean their teeth three times a day or more. Dumbs down the brain. We were told at college that it was used in the concentration camps to keep the prisoners quiet. I’ve not been able to find that on research but I wouldn’t be surprised. Lots of fluoride free toothpaste about you just have to read the ingredients.
    I don’t want ‘your’ medication put in my drinking water, I’m sure that goes against my rights. Terrible thing is, what you Americans do this year, our idiots will want to do next year. You just have to recall the lies the WHO said about the flu jabs – because some of the committee were in the pay of the drugs companies. I believe there are NO independent members of the FDA now, they are all drug company employees. Thats like letting the fox spend his nights in the hen house!

    Fluorine has so much energy that it causes the DNA coil to become less coiled. (double helix coil). This causes the day time night time cycles to become disorganized. This mineral replaces iodine. See Dr. Dan Murphy’s book “The devil’s poison “Fluoride”.

    I would just like to add that fluoride is the ion in chemical compounds used in water fluoridation. Fluorine is the element. Fluorine is the most powerful of the Halogen group and is the most active, toxic, corrosive non-metallic element on the Periodic Chart of the Elements. The general formula of all nerve gases is that they are alkylFLUOROphosphates. Fluorine is a component of insecticides, nerve gases, and rocket fuels. The worst use of fluorine is in Psychiatric Drugs. CF3, the trifluoromethyl group in the piperazine phenothiazines (Stelazine, Trilifon, Prolixin etc.) becomes a dangerous free radical when the drug reacts in the human body , and these drugs are very toxic. Fluorine is also in the much newer psychiatric drugs like Prozac. The only reason our government drinking water doesn’t make us too sick is that the fluorine compounds are only there in a concentration of 1 part per million. Pity the poor Psychiatric Drug victims who are forced to take fluorine bearing major tranquilizers at 100% full strength. Forced by United States State Governments since 1954!
