Vaccine Fraud. Russell Blaylock M.D.

Post Vaccination – Vaccine Targeted Strain – Viral and Bacterial Pathogen – Shedding

So how much of this said claim is truth and real, and/or not real? Do we know? A search for the evidence.

First of all, let me ask this. Why is it, that when the conclusions of actually peer reviewed studies are not in your favor as to the intended agenda bias, that even endless peer reviewed studies are not enough to get pro-vaccine people to take a look at and even read a single one of those studies; yet when there are limited to little to no existing peer reviewed studies, that they are jumping all over with demands to produce a peer reviewed study, to make such as any certain such as a vax-truth opposing persons point of contention, that has expressed?

In regard to vaccines lets go to the issue of vaccine shedding, and ask the question as to can and do any of the current vaccines shed the pathogen in a way that could make a non vaccinated person susceptible to acquiring the illness from a vaccinated person. There are in Pubmed several but limited studies that address the shedding issue as to in regard to the various vaccines. Just use the search terms vaccine shedding Pubmed, and will you several but as said limited numbers references in the google listing, and then you can go to pubmed itself, which is somewhat as well limited for available references as to claiming one way or the other. As for the measles vaccine, one Pubmed reference stated that it the vaccine could shed for up to three days. Certainly long enough to infect another individual.

So, actually and possibly no one really nor likely knows for sure what the complete truth is on this issue. It would seem to be common sense that the vaccine makers surely do not and would not want to know if their vaccine causes shedding or not; nor to find out. So then who would actually fund theses said studies. I think with what I read and reviewed in regard to vaccine shedding, just getting into even the beginning phase of the studies, tells me that vaccines do have a potential to shed irregardless of being bacterial or viral; which very well could be an obvious risk to the unvaccinated. I mean good grief, the existing studies clearly point to the push to vaccinate everyone due to the risk of shedding possibility. What more evidence would you need of the risk of the vaccinated, to the unvaccinated? And yet the pro-vaccine side wants to claim to just the opposite; and that it is only the vaccinated that are at risk from the unvaccinated??? You know accused again of reducing the vaccine derived herd immunity; even though the schools most often even today have no more than a 5% or less rate of existing school exemptions?  We as well by the way are not are NOT just talking about the oral polio vaccine, here. They clearly know that the oral polio vaccine sheds and can as well cause numerous cases of AFP in the underdeveloped and unsanitary for conditions countries, that the oral polio vaccine is still used to day. They know of the identified mutations in the polio vaccine virus that the the said oral vaccine has very likely as well caused. if they have an alternative explanation, I have yet to hear and or read about it.

So, let me ask you, have vaccines eradicated so called illness and disease, or have they just prolonged the exit, while creating only lower levels of chronic disease, and disease conditions? How about other unrelated chronic illness and autoimmune disease, unrelated to the vaccine targeted pathogen? How about the pubmed listed as well references to the harm of aluminum adjuvants, causing overactivation of the brains microglia and resulting low levels of chronic brain inflammation resulting for repeat multiple vaccines, in some individuals; maybe more individuals and children that we have ever realized? How about the aluminum adjuvant connection to ASD? The studies, and new studies have shown that same brain inflammation to now be found in more and more children and individuals with ASD. And they want to tell us that vaccines have never been scientifically linked in any study, to ASD? Really? How about the MMR vaccine, in which there are actually some similar physiological pathways found in relation to ASD, and also which are in common with heavy metal toxicity, if not overload, in regard to both thimerosal, and aluminum adjuvants. I don’t know about you and what you think, but I think it is not looking good for the claim as to the issue of vaccines doing more good than harm. When will the CD stop living in the dark ages, and dragging their feet as to doing the proper studies? Yet they waste millions chasing the genetic link to ASD, and refuse all other types and forms of real research?

I did pick one specific peer reviewed reference in regard shedding, that I thought was interesting, and a bit troublesome regarding risk. In regard to the shedding of course all they can come up with is to come up with that every last person existing must be vaccinated to protect them against the shedding.

Pertussis infection in fully vaccinated children in day-care centers, Israel.

Abstract

We tested 46 fully vaccinated children in two day-care centers in Israel who were exposed to a fatal case of pertussis infection. Only two of five children who tested positive for Bordetella pertussis met the World Health Organization’s case definition for pertussis. Vaccinated children may be asymptomatic reservoirs for infection.

Researchers find first US evidence of vaccine-resistant pertussis
http://healthimpactnews.com/2013/researchers-find-first-us-evidence-of-vaccine-resistant-pertussis/

And they tell us the vaccines do not shed? How would this be possible if the vaccines do not shed anything contagious? And they want us to believe that the un-vaccinated are a risk to the vaccinated. Vaccine derived herd relatively and comparatively short term immunity, has never had any actual science behind it; and as to natural long term and/or life time immunity, where as that concept actually makes does sense. So what is the REAL reason they say they need vaccine derived herd immunity? Is it possible that it is more likely due to the issue of vaccine shedding? Now we are getting to some actual understanding of what possibly really goes on.

ECZEMA VACCINATUM

ABSTRACT

Nine cases of eczema vaccinatum are presented, including two fatalities. Seven were caused by contact of a child with eczema with a recently vaccinated sibling.

Suddenly appearing umbilicated vesicles superimposed upon atopic eczema are almost diagnostic of eczema vaccinatum or eczema herpeticum. These do not occur with mere secondary bacterial infection.

Hyperimmune vaccinal gamma-globulin is now available for specific therapy.

Eczema vaccinatum is frequently iatrogenic and uniformly preventable.

The following steps are recommended for prophylaxis: 1) No child with atopic eczema or other skin disorder should be vaccinated. 2) No child should be vaccinated if any member of his family has eczema or other skin disorder. 3) Parents of children with eczema should be notified at the onset of the disease of the danger from vaccination contact. 4) If a sibling of a child with atopic eczema is vaccinated, he must be completely separated from that child for at least 21 days. 5) Forms used by state and local health departments for parents’ consent to vaccination should include an appropriate warning of the contraindications. 6) Eczema vaccinatum should be a reportable disease. 7) Patients recently vaccinated must be excluded from pediatric wards containing patients with atopic eczema, other diseases of the skin, burns or healing surgical incisions. 8) Vaccination may be recommended at 2 months of age, especially for babies from strongly allergic families.

Acellular pertussis vaccination enhances B. parapertussis colonization

An acellular whooping cough vaccine actually enhances the colonization of Bordetella parapertussis in mice; pointing towards a rise in B. parapertussis incidence resulting from acellular vaccination, which may have contributed to the observed increase in whooping cough over the last decade.

http://www.cidd.psu.edu/research/synopses/acellular-vaccine-enhancement-b.-parapertussi

And rarely are they testing for it nor even knowing understanding what pertussis pathogen strains are there. B parapertussis antigen is not in the current vaccine. And the fear mongering and the recommended boosters continue.

They can admit to the pertussis vaccine failure in Pakistan, but the CDC can not and refuses to admit to that here happening in the US.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

To investigate the aetiology of persistent cough among vaccinated children as suspected cases of pertussis in Khairpur District, Sindh, Pakistan. Pertussis or whooping cough, caused by Bordetella pertussis, is re-appearing in many countries despite vaccination coverage. In Khairpur, persistent cough and symptoms similar to pertussis among vaccinated children are common but the aetiology has not been investigated previously.

STUDY DESIGN:

B. pertussis was isolated from cough samples of suspected pertussis patients (n = 700) using the cough plate method with charcoal agar.

METHODS:

Isolation and confirmation of the clinical isolates of B. pertussis was performed by culture on Bordet-Gengou medium, biochemical tests and polymerase chain reaction.

RESULTS:

In total, 22 strains of B. pertussis were isolated from clinical cough samples.

CONCLUSION:

To the authors’ knowledge, this is the first report of the presence of pertussis in vaccinated children in Khairpur. There is a need for continuous monitoring of pertussis after immunization programmes in order to assess the efficacy of pertussis vaccination.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22445714

And what has the CDC done about it all? They have only continued with their fear mongering and falsely blaming the un-vaccinated. Cocoon tyle vaccinating whole families, and still the outbreaks occur.

Bordetella pertussis Strains with Increased Toxin Production Associated with Pertussis Resurgence (PDF)

Abstract excerpt:

We present evidence that in the Netherlands the dramatic increase in pertussis is temporally associated with the emergence of Bordetella pertussis strains carrying a novel allele for the pertussis toxin promoter, which confers

increased pertussis toxin (Ptx) production. Epidemiologic data suggest that these strains are more virulent in humans. We discuss changes in the ecology of B. pertussis that may have driven this adaptation. Our results underline the importance of Ptx in transmission, suggest that vaccination may select for increased virulence, and indicate ways to control

Prevalent serotypes of Bordetella pertussis in non-vaccinated communities.

Abstract

In many countries, the prevalent serotypes of Bordetella pertussis have changed from a mixture of types 1,2,3 and 1,2 (organisms possessing antigen 2) to a predominance of type 1,3. The timing of the change in different countries is shown to be related to the introduction of mass-vaccination with material rich in antigens 1 and 2 but weak in, or devoid of, antigen 3. In several parts of the world, there have been outbreaks of type 1,3 infection in fully vaccinated children. Non-vaccinated communities in various parts of the world still show the pattern of serotypes which existed elsewhere before mass-vaccination. In order to avoid the disappointments experienced in the past, it is essential that pertussis vaccine for use in previously non-vaccinated communities, like that for any other country, should be rich in each of the three antigens.

Small Mutations in Bordetella pertussis Are Associated with Selective Sweeps

Abstract excerpt:

Our results suggest that the B. pertussis gene repertoire is already well adapted to its current niche and required only fine tuning to persist in the face of vaccination. Further, this work shows that small mutations, even single SNPs, can drive large changes in the populations of bacterial pathogens within a time span of six to 19 years.

Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) Treatment of Whooping Cough *

Discussion
The short series of cases presented is too small to draw any statistical conclusions, but one fact stands out. Ascorbic acid has a definite efTect in shortening the period of paroxysms from a matter of weeks to a matter of days. We have not checked by cough plates or otherwise in this preliminary work to see whether the infectivity subsides simultaneously with the spasmodic symptoms, but are continuing with a larger series of cases in which these and other tests will be employed.

The dosages used have been empirical, with a tendency to use larger doses early in the disease as our experience of its effects progressed. The acid is available at reasonable prices, and the danger of overdosage seems negligible. Animals have received 2,000 times their estimated requirements without any deleterious effects. Any excess is excreted by the kidneys.

CONCLUSIONS
1. A method has been described for the treatment of whooping cough by ascorbic acid
(vitamin C).
2. Ascorbic acid definitely shortens the paroxysmal stage of the disease, particularly if

Another below is another example of a failed effort with polio vaccine. It does little good to claim to have eliminated a certain number of previously present cases of polio, while at the same time causing massive cases of polio vaccine derived paralysis. 47,500 new cases. Yet they claim this is NECESSARY, to eradicate polio. They refuse to admit any failure, it seems to me?

Polio programme: let us declare victory and move on.

Abstract

It was hoped that following polio eradication, immunisation could be stopped. However the synthesis of polio virus in 2002, made eradication impossible. It is argued that getting poor countries to expend their scarce resources on an impossible dream over the last 10 years was unethical. Furthermore, while India has been polio-free for a year, there has been a huge increase in non-polio acute flaccid paralysis (NPAFP). In 2011, there were an extra 47,500 new cases of NPAFP. Clinically indistinguishable from polio paralysis but twice as deadly, the incidence of NPAFP was directly proportional to doses of oral polio received. Though this data was collected within the polio surveillance system, it was not investigated. The principle of primum-non-nocere was violated. The authors suggest that the huge bill of US$ 8 billion spent on the programme, is a small sum to pay if the world learns to be wary of such vertical programmes in the future.

What Is Coming Through That Needle? The Problem of Pathogenic Vaccine Contamination

Benjamin McRearden

http://www.scribd.com/doc/42722540/Vaccine-Contamination-Mcrearden

Mutant Polio Virus Spreads in Nigeria

Experts have long believed epidemics unleashed by a vaccine’s mutated virus wouldn’t last since the vaccine only contains a weakened virus strain – but that assumption is coming under pressure. Some experts now say that once viruses from vaccines start circulating they can become just as dangerous as wild viruses.

“The only difference is that this virus was originally in a vaccine vial,” said Olen Kew, a virologist at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The oral polio vaccine used in Nigeria and elsewhere contains a mild version of the live virus. Children who have been vaccinated pass the virus into the water supply through urine or feces. Other children who then play in or drink that water pick up the vaccine’s virus, which gives them some protection against polio.

But in rare instances, as the virus passes through unimmunized children, it can mutate into a strain dangerous enough to ignite new outbreaks, particularly if immunization rates in the rest of the population are low.

Kew said genetic analysis proves mutated viruses from the vaccine have caused at least seven separate outbreaks in Nigeria.

Though Nigeria’s coverage rates have improved, up to 15 percent of children in the north still haven’t been vaccinated against polio. To eradicate the disease, officials need to reach about 95 percent of the population.

Nigeria’s vaccine-linked outbreak underlines the need to stop using the oral polio vaccine as soon as possible, since it can create the very epidemics it was designed to stop, experts say. WHO is researching other vaccines that might work better, but none is on the horizon.

Until a better vaccine is ready, WHO and U.S. CDC officials say the oral vaccine is the best available tool to eradicate polio and that when inoculation rates are nearly 100 percent it works fine.

“Nigeria is almost a case study in what happens when you don’t follow the recommendations,” Kew said.

http://www.cbsnews.com/2100-204_162-5242168.html

Mutated Polio From Vaccine Is Spreading in Africa

A mutation from a live polio vaccine is stalking Nigeria. In a strange twist of logic, experts are claiming that it mutated as it passed through non-immunized children.

The claim is that children given the live attenuated oral vaccine are properly immunized, but the live virus passes through them and enters local water supplies through their urine or feces. Then, children who have not been immunized pick up the supposedly safe virus by drinking or playing in the water. The weakened virus mutates in them, becoming a new virulent strain.

Why the virus would choose to mutate in non-vaccinated, rather than vaccinated, children is unexplained. Even odder is why the weakened virus would pass through the vaccinated children. If the purpose of a live attenuated vaccination is to force the body to develop antibodies to the virus, then why would live viruses be excreted? Shouldn’t they be killed by the newly-developed antibodies?

Are we being lied to?

This sounds much like the argument that blames nonvaccinated people for disease in those who’ve submitted to innoculations. If the vaccines are effective, then why would the vaccinated be at risk from the unvaccinated?

Are we being lied to?

Point mutations involved in the attenuation/neurovirulence alternation in type 1 and 2 oral polio vaccine strains detected by site-specific polymerase chain reaction.

We screened for this mutation in five type 1 and nine type 2 polio vaccine-derived strains isolated from vaccine-associated paralytic poliomyelitis (VAPP) cases and in 16 such strains isolated from healthy vaccinees. All 14 strains isolated from VAPP presented the reversion. Of the eight pairs of type 1 isolates from healthy vaccinees, four presented the reversion 3 days after vaccine administration and all but one at 7 days postvaccination. These results support the involvement of the 5′ non-coding specific nucleotide sites in the reversion to neurovirulence of attenuated polio vaccine strains upon multiplication in the human gut

Look at the unbelievable statements in the next set of information. So ask, WHY are they using a live and shedding viral vaccine, in these contaminated areas, at all?

Oral Polio Vaccine Circulation and Mutation after Mexican National Immunization Weeks

Conclusion: OPV, primarily serotype 2, was detected in sewage as late as 7 months after an NIW in a Mexican community primarily vaccinated with IPV, but was not detected at 8 months, suggesting that OPV circulation may have ceased.  VAPP mutants were predominantly detected.  This data suggests that in communities with high vaccination rates, one or two years of IPV administration after OPV cessation could be sufficient to prevent outbreaks of paralytic poliomyelitis from vaccine-derived strains.

Polio vaccine suspected as cause of fatal mutant form of encephalitis

The polio vaccine isn’t protecting children – and, worse, it appears to be causing a new and sometimes fatal form of the disease.

Concerns about the vaccine have arisen following a high number of deaths and hospital admissions from encephalitis and polio in the Uttar Pradesh region of India – where there has been an intensive vaccination programme.

Around 400 children have died, and a further 2,300 admitted to hospital, following an outbreak of a new form of viral encephalitis, and doctors admit they do not know its cause.

Unvaccinated Blamed for Mutated Polio, (AGAIN ALWAYS FALSELY THE UNVACCINATED ARE BLAMED FOR ANYTHING THAT HAPPENS)

Mutant polio vaccine regains virulence

Excerpts:

But the latest study raises the frightening possibility that the vaccine strain can also regain the ability to spread between people more easily than thought. “It demonstrates clearly that the vaccine virus can spread from person to person,” says Olen Kew from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia.

The outbreak was exacerbated by the fact that Haiti had relaxed its polio vaccination program more than five years earlier. “It’s a warning that you need to have good coverage to prevent vaccines from running away like this,” Kew says.

Total eradication

The study also shows how difficult it will be eliminate polio entirely. For this to be achieved, natural polio would first have to be wiped out through stringent use of the oral polio vaccine. Then all countries could simultaneously stop vaccinating or switch to a different vaccine – injectable, dead polio virus.

This method does not confer as much immunity as the oral vaccine, but it cannot revert to a disease-causing form. This vaccine is already used in the US and much of Europe.

http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn2047-mutant-polio-vaccine-regains-virulence.html

This again points to the claim that they think they need to get 100% vaccine coverage in ever country with existing polio, and only then it may be possible to stop polio, but yet they know they will have the mutations still going on and the result of that is in their minds quite obviously only necessary collateral damage, so to speak. So, as long as they can keep blaming it all on the unvaccinated, which is not exactly proven; it is an assumption. And as long as they keep playing Russian Roulette with the vaccine virus; in the hopes that it does not continue to mutate to a point of becoming a super virus world wide. But in the end, the with the known odds that have been and in the resulting outcomes; clearly it all shows this plan to be not only failing and dangerous; but even currently, is likely causing more harm than good; and will continue to.

Abstract

Analysis of urine specimens by using reverse transcriptase-PCR was evaluated as a rapid assay to identify individuals infected with measles virus. For the study, daily urine samples were obtained from either 15-month-old children or young adults following measles immunization. Overall, measles virus RNA was detected in 10 of 12 children during the 2-week sampling period. In some cases, measles virus RNA was detected as early as 1 day or as late as 14 days after vaccination. Measles virus RNA was also detected in the urine samples from all four of the young adults between 1 and 13 days after vaccination. This assay will enable continued studies of the shedding and transmission of measles virus and, it is hoped, will provide a rapid means to identify measles infection, especially in mild or asymptomatic cases.

You see in the next below link that it ALL depends on who has done the study, as for if they find the evidence of shedding due to a/or the vaccine. Here we have the Journal of Infectious diseases that is closely aligned with pharma and Offit’s CHOP. And they of course find predicable no shedding. Can you imagine the upset if they had, and presented to the CDC with that? Clearly, is not happening.

So, the pro vaccine side again claims to what? Well if there are no studies to prove that the vaccines cause shedding, then it simply doesn’t happen. Just like in regard to the vaccine aluminum adjuvants; if no studies have ever been done, then we can proclaim that there is no scientific proof of the harm, thus there is no said harm being done.

Abstract

The duration of mumps virus RNA detection was studied during a mumps outbreak in a highly vaccinated university population. Seven of the eight reverse transcription-PCR-positive specimens were collected during the first 3 days of parotitis, suggesting that viral shedding is minimal after the first 3 days of symptoms.

Statins add a mere three days to life…

The original article appears here.   VR

———————-

STATINS, the controversial heart drugs, add only three days to a patient’s life, research reveals.

By Lucy Johnston, Daily Express

The study contradicts the widely held view that they save lives and last night health experts demanded a radical overhaul in the use of the drugs – which have been linked with severe and debilitating side-effects such as diabetes, muscle pain and cataracts – claiming the research reveals patients have been “misled” over “exaggerated” benefits.

The British Medical Journal, which published the findings, called for a review of prescribing guidelines for statins which are routinely given to up to 12 million patients.

Professor Jesper Hallas led the research, which assessed 11 major studies on statins, including patients at lower and high risk of heart disease.  It followed patients for up to six years. The research compared patients who took the drugs with those who unknowingly took a placebo.  It concluded: “Statin treatment results in a surprisingly small average gain in overall survival within the trials’ running time.”

Statins increased life expectancy by just three days for those people who did not already have a diagnosis of existing heart disease or associated symptoms.  Patients who had already suffered a heart attack, stroke or associated symptoms increased their longevity by four days by taking statins.

Professor Hallas, an expert on medicines at the University of Southern Denmark, said: “I have heard a lot of patients complain they cannot tolerate statins and they are told they have to put up with it.  If I suffered side-effects from statins I would stop taking them, even if I was at high risk of heart disease.”

However, he said more research was needed to confirm his findings.  His team is now carrying out work to assess whether statins reduce the risk of non-fatal heart attacks and strokes.

British Medical Journal editor Dr Fiona Godlee said: “The recommendations for the prescribing of statins should be reviewed in the light of this information.”

Dr Aseem Malhotra, a London-based cardiologist who has analysed the effects of the cholesterol-busting drugs agreed.  He said: “This study strongly suggests the benefits of statins have been grossly exaggerated.”

Dr Malcolm Kendrick, an expert on heart health, said: “Patients have been manipulated and misled over these drugs.”

Earlier this year this paper revealed statins have been linked to almost 20,000 reports of side-effects – including muscle pain, cataracts, liver dysfunction, diabetes, fatigue and memory loss – and 227 deaths.

Doctors are currently recommended to prescribe statins for anyone who has a 10 per cent risk of heart disease within a decade.

Big Pharma Revealed As Puppetmaster Behind TPP Secrecy

Tyler Durden's picture

 It is no secret that US healthcare corporations have been among, if not the biggest beneficiaries of Obamacare: by “socializing” costs and spreading the reimbursement pool over the entire population in the form of a tax, pharmaceutical companies have been able to boost medical product and service costs to unprecedented levels with the help of complicit insurance companies who have subsequently passed through these costs to the consumer, in the process sending the price of biotech and pharma stocks to levels not seen since the dot com bubble. But when it came to the highly confidential TPP, it was unclear just which corporations were dominant in pulling the strings.
Now thanks to more documents published by Wikileaks, and analyzed by the NYT, it appears that “big pharma” is once again pulling the strings, this time of the Trans Pacific Partnership, which if passed will “empower big pharmaceutical firms to command higher reimbursement rates in the United States and abroad, at the expense of consumers” according to “public health professionals, generic-drug makers and activists opposed to the trade deal.”
In other words, just like the narrowly-passed Obamacare was a gift for big Pharma, so America’s legal drug dealers are now trying to go for another price boosting catalyst, one which however will involve not just the US but some 12 countries in the Asia-Pacific region. Worst of all, the negotiations for the next price increase is taking place in utmost secrecy where “American negotiators are still pressing participating governments to open the process that sets reimbursement rates for drugs and medical devices.”
As RT notes, the latest disclosure links the Healthcare Annex to the secret draft of the quite aptly-named “Transparency” Chapter of the TPP, along with each country’s negotiating position. The leaked “Annex on transparency and procedural fairness for pharmaceutical products and medical devices” is dated from December 2014, with the draft being restricted from release for four years after the passage of the TPP into law.

Worse, while in the US the rising healthcare costs are at least spread across a broader social safety net, the TPP is targeting countries where the potential jump in drug prices will have dramatic effects. As the NYT notes, “foreign governments and health care activists have accused pharmaceutical giants, mostly based in the United States, of protecting profits over public health, especially in poor countrieswhere neither the government nor consumers can afford to pay rates anywhere close to those charged in wealthier nations.

“That fight re-emerged in the Pacific trade negotiations, which involve countries with strong cost-containment policies, like New Zealand, as well as poor countries like Peru and Vietnam.The agreement “will increase the cost of medicines worldwide, starting with the 12 countries that are negotiating the Trans-Pacific Partnership,” said Judit Rius Sanjuan, a lawyer at Doctors Without Borders, a humanitarian organization that provides medical care in more than 60 countries.
None other than the CEO of Mylan explained in the simplest possible way what is going on: a government mandated monopoly under the guise of a trade pact: “Heather Bresch, the chief executive of Mylan, one of the largest generic-drug makers, said the brand-name pharmaceutical industry was “establishing, through U.S. trade policy, an international system designed to maximize its monopolies.”
But where the alarm bells truly go off is when someone, anyone, uses the word “fair” to justify policy, such as surging drug costs. To wit: “drug companies, however, say they need to be able to charge fair prices to compensate for the billions of dollars and decades of research that go into their medicines.”

What is amusing is that the true motive behind theTPP’s secrecy have been quite clear tovirtually everyone butthe population of theTPP’s host nation:

 “It was very clear to everyone except the U.S. that the initial proposal wasn’t about transparency. It was about getting market access for the pharmaceutical industry by giving them greater access to and influence over decision-making processes around pricing and reimbursement,” said Deborah Gleeson, a lecturer at the School of Psychology and Public Health at La Trobe University in Australia. And even though the section, known as the transparency annex, has been toned down, she said, “I think it’s a shame that the annex is still being considered at all for the T.P.P.”

RT adds that one country that should be in arms over the TPP is Australia:

The secret negotiations now allegedly reveal that Australia’s Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme might be undermined, pushing up the cost of medicines in the country.
“United States trade negotiators have aggressively pushed for provisions favoring multinational pharmaceutical manufacturers at the expense of national governments and public healthcare systems,”
the Sydney Morning Herald wrote.
But the one place where the biggest price shock may be unleashed is, not surprisingly, the US itself :
The leaked TPP document “shows that the pact could expose Medicare to pharmaceutical company attacks and constrain future policy reforms, including the ability of the US government to curb rising and unsustainable drug prices,” the US consumer rights advocacy group and think tank Public Citizen said in its Wednesday statement.
The group says president Obama’s administration has been “acting at the behest of pharmaceutical companies,” and the secret negotiations it has been holding within the partnership might affect Medicare, limiting “Congress’ ability to enact policy reforms that would reduce prescription drug costs for Americans.”
The same Congress, incidentally, which gladly washed its hands of any discussion of the TPP when the Senate “fast-tracked” its passage and as the NYT further notes, “a House vote on final passage of the bill, now expected on Friday, appears extremely close.”
In other words, in exchange for a few million in lobby spending, aka bribes, by Big Pharma, the US Congress has once again sold out the US population, and this time it even voluntarily bypassed even the mock democratic process of debating the law it will pass.

Why? Just so shareholders of pharmaceutical companies could reap even greater profits at theexpense of not just the US population, but of the populations of some of the biggest US trading partners, all of whom are about to see the prices of medical care skyrocket.And since nothing is confirmed until it is officially denied, here is the punchline:

“The transparency annex in T.P.P. is not subject to Investor-State Dispute Settlement, and nothing in its provisions will undermine our ability to pursue the best health care policy for Americans, including any future action on health care expenditures and cost containment,” a trade representative spokesman said.

Those Americans who may wish to challenge the claim well, they are out of luck: Congress is about to make sure there is no way anyone can have a say into what big corporations have in store for the US population.

Editor In Chief Of World’s Best Known Medical Journal: “Half Of All The Literature Is False”

“Science has taken a turn towards Darkness”

German-newspapers-media

In the past few years more professionals have come forward to share a truth that, for many people, proves difficult to swallow. One such authority is Dr. Richard Horton, the current editor-in-chief of the Lancet – considered to be one of the most well respected peer-reviewed medical journals in the world.

Dr. Horton recently published a statement declaring that a lot of published research is in fact unreliable at best, if not completely false.

“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific 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.” (source)

This is quite disturbing, given the fact that all of these studies (which are industry sponsored) are used to develop drugs/vaccines to supposedly help people, train medical staff, educate medical students and more.

It’s common for many to dismiss a lot of great work by experts and researchers at various institutions around the globe which isn’t “peer-reviewed” and doesn’t appear in a “credible” medical journal, but as we can see, “peer-reviewed” doesn’t really mean much anymore. “Credible” medical journals continue to lose their tenability in the eyes of experts and employees of the journals themselves, like Dr. Horton.

He also went on to call himself out in a sense, stating that journal editors aid and abet the worst behaviours, that the amount of bad research is alarming, that data is sculpted to fit a preferred theory. He goes on to observe that important confirmations are often rejected and little is done to correct bad practices. What’s worse, much of what goes on could even be considered borderline misconduct.

Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and longtime Editor in Chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ), which is considered to another one of the most prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals in the world, makes her view of the subject quite plain:

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment 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”  (source)

I apologize if you have seen it before in my articles, but it is quite the statement, and it comes from someone who also held a position similiar to Dr. Horton.

There is much more than anecdotal evidence to support these claims, however, including documents obtained by Lucija Tomljenovic, PhD, from the Neural Dynamics Research Group in the Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at the University of British Columbia, which reveal that 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 their complicity suggests that this practice continues to this day. (source)

This is just one of many examples, and alludes to one point Dr. Horton is referring to, the ommision of data. For the sake of time, I encourage you to do your own research on this subject. I just wanted to provide some food for thought about something that is not often considered when it comes to medical research, and the resulting products and theories which are then sold to us based on that research.

It’s truly a remarkable time to be alive. Over the course of human history, our planet has experienced multiple paradigm shifting realizations, all of which were met with harsh resistence at the time of their revelation. One great example is when we realized the Earth was not flat. Today, we are seeing these kinds of revelatory shifts in thinking happen in multiple spheres, all at one time. It can seem overwhelming for those who are paying attention, especially given the fact that a lot of these ideas go against current belief systems. There will always be resistance to new information which does not fit into the current framework, regardless of how reasonable (or factual) that information might be.

Psychiatric drugs kill 500k+ Western adults annually, few positive benefits – leading scientist

Psychiatric drugs lead to the deaths of over 500,000 people aged 65 and over annually in the West, a Danish scientist says. He warns the benefits of these drugs are “minimal,” and have been vastly overstated.

Research director at Denmark’s Nordic Cochrane Centre, Professor Peter Gøtzsche, says the use of most antidepressants and dementia drugs could be halted without inflicting harm on patients. The Danish scientist’s views were published in the British Medical Journal on Tuesday.

His scathing analysis will likely prove controversial among traditional medics. However, concern is mounting among doctors and scientists worldwide that psychiatric medication is doing more harm than good. In particular, they say antipsychotic drugs have been overprescribed to many dementia patients in a bid to calm agitated behavior.

Gøtzsche warns psychiatric drugs kill patients year in year out, and hold few positive benefits. He says in excess of half a million citizens across the Western world aged 65 and over die annually as a result of taking these drugs.

“Their benefits would need to be colossal to justify this, but they are minimal,” he writes.

“Given their lack of benefit, I estimate we could stop almost all psychotropic drugs without causing harm.”

Gøtzsche, who is also a clinical trials expert, says drug trials funded by big pharmaceutical companies tend to produce biased results because many patients took other medication prior to the tests.

He says patients cease taking the old drugs and then experience a phase of withdrawal prior to taking the trial pharmaceuticals, which appear highly beneficial at first.

The Danish professor also warns fatalities from suicides in clinical trials are significantly under-reported.

In the case of antidepressants venlafaxine and fluoxetine, Gøtzsche casts doubt over their efficacy. He said depression lifts in placebo groups given fake tablets almost as promptly as groups who partake in official clinical tests.

He also stressed the results of trials of drugs used to treat schizophrenia are disconcerting, while those for ADHD are ambiguous.

Commenting on the negative side effects of such pharmaceutical drugs, Gøtzsche argued the “short-term relief” appears to be replaced by “long term harm.”

“Animal studies strongly suggest that these drugs can produce brain damage, which is probably the case for all psychotropic drugs,”he said.

“Given their lack of benefit, I estimate we could stop almost all psychotropic drugs without causing harm – by dropping all antidepressants, ADHD drugs and dementia drugs … and using only a fraction of the antipsychotics and benzodiazepines we currently use.”

“This would lead to healthier and more long-lived populations.”

Gøtzsche says psychotropic drugs are “immensely harmful” if used for prolonged periods.

“They should almost exclusively be used in acute situations and always with a firm plan for tapering off, which can be difficult for many patients,” he adds.

Gøtzsche’s views are sharply contradicted by many experts in the field of mental health. But others, including a diverse group of medical experts and institutions affiliated with the Nordic Cochrane Centre, argue otherwise. The Nordic Cochrane Centre is an independent research hub dedicated to scrutinizing and monitoring the effects of health care.

The debate on psychiatric drugs has gathered momentum in recent times. In the discussion, published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ), Gøtzsche’s arguments are contradicted by Professor of Mood Disorders Allan Young and John Crace. Crace, himself a psychiatric patient, writes for the Guardian.

Crace and Young say a broad body of research indicates the drugs are effective and that they are just as helpful as drugs for other ailments. They also argue mental health conditions are the fifth most significant contributor to disabilities worldwide.

While Gøtzsche stresses clinical trials bankrolled by pharma giants churn out skewered results, Young and Crace say the efficacy and safety of psychiatric medication continues to be monitored after research trials come to a close.

However, both Young and Crace acknowledge concern over the side effects and effectiveness of psychiatric medication.

“For some critics, the onus often seems to be on the drug needing to prove innocence from causing harm rather than a balanced approach to evaluating the available evidence,” they write.

“Whether concerns are genuine or an expression of prejudice is not clear, but over time many concerns have been found to be overinflated.”

The BMJ discussion is a preamble to the Maudsley debate at Kings College London on Wednesday. The debate takes place three times a year at the university’s Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN).

Wednesday’s debate focuses on the impacts of psychiatric medications, and poses the question of whether they prove more destructive for patients than beneficial.

Hahnemann nails the argument…

By Vera Resnick

Thinking-Man-RodinIn his preface to the proving of Arsenicum Album in Chronic Diseases, Hahnemann really nails many of the arguments we face in our own, modern allopathically brainwashed societies today. Rather than comment, here is Hahnemann in his own pithy, erudite, and very sharp words. I’ve highlighted some words in bold. This is only an excerpt. There’s more. Go read.

“ARSENICUM ALBUM.

“As I write down the word Arsenic, momentous memories seize upon my soul.

“When the All-merciful One created iron, He granted to mankind, indeed, to fashion from it either the murderous dagger or the mild ploughshare, and either to kill or to nourish their brethren therewith. How much happier, however, would they be, did they employ His gifts only to benefit one another! This should be the aim of their life; this was His will.

“So also it is not to Him, the All-loving One, we must impute the wickedness practiced by men, who have dared to misemploy the wonderfully powerful medicinal substances in diseases for which they were not suitable, and besides this in doses so enormous, guided only by frivolous ideas or some paltry authorities, without having subjected them to any careful trial, and without a well-grounded selection.

“If now a careful prover of the effects of medicines arise, they inveigh against him as an enemy to their comfort, and do not refrain from the most dishonest calumnies.

“The ordinary medical art has hitherto employed in large and frequently repeated doses the most powerful medicines, such as arsenic, nitrate of silver, corrosive sublimate, aconitum napellus, belladonna, iodine, digitalis, opium, hyoscyamus, etc. Homoeopathy cannot employ stronger substances, for there are none stronger. Now, when ordinary physicians employ them, they evidently vie with one another who shall prescribe the largest possible doses of these drugs, and even make a great boast of their mounting to such enormous doses. This practice they laud and approve in their fellow practitioners. But if the Homoeopathic medical art employ the same drugs, not at random, like the ordinary method, but after careful investigation, only in suitable cases and in the smallest possible doses, it is denounced as a practice of poisoning. How partisan, how unjust, how calumnious is such a charge made by men who make pretensions to honesty and uprightness!

“If Homoeopathy now make a fuller explanation, if she condemn (as from conviction she must) the enormous doses of these drugs given in ordinary practice, and if she, relying on careful trials, insists that very much less of them should be given for a dose, that where ordinary physicians give a tenth, a half, a whole grain, and even several grains, often only a quadrillionth, a sextillionth, a decillionth of a grain is required and sufficient, then the adherents of the ordinary school, who denounce the Homoeopathic healing art as a system of poisoning, laugh aloud, abuse it as childishness, and declare themselves convinced (convinced without trial ?) that such a small quantity can do nothing at all, and can have no effect whatever, is, indeed, just the same as nothing. They are not ashamed thus to blow hot and cold from the same mouth, and to pronounce the very same thing to be inert and ludicrously small, which they had just accused of being a system of poisoning, whilst they justify and praise their own enormous and murderous doses of the same remedies. Is not this the grossest and most wretched inconsistency that can be imagined, invented for the very purpose of being shamelessly unjust toward a doctrine which, they cannot deny, possesses truth, consistence and agreement with experience, and which practices the most delicate cautiousness and the most unwearied circumspection in the selection and administration of its remedies?

Not very long ago a highly celebrated physician [Marcus of Bamberg] spoke of pounds of opium being eaten every month in his hospital, where even the nurses were allowed to give it to the patients according to their fancy. Opium, mind! a drug that has sent several thousands of men to their graves in ordinary practice! Yet this man continued to be held in honor, for he belonged to the dominant clique to which everything is lawful even if it be of the most destructive and absurd character.

And when, a few years since, in one of the most enlightened cities of Europe almost every practitioner, from the physician of lofty title down to the barber’s apprentice, prescribed arsenic as a fashionable remedy in almost every disease, and that in such frequent and large doses in close succession, that the detriment to the health of the people must have been quite palpable, yet this was held to be an honorable practice, though not one of them was acquainted with the peculiar effects of the semi-oxide of this metal (and consequently knew not what cases of disease it was suited for). And yet all prescribed it in repeated doses, a single one of which, sufficiently attenuated and potentized, would have sufficed to cure all the diseases in the whole habitable world for which this drug is the suitable remedy.

Which of these two opposite modes of employing medicines best deserves the flattering appellation of a “system of poisoning” -the ordinary method just alluded to, which attacks with tenths of grains the poor patients (who often require some quite different remedy), or Homoeopathy, which does not even give a little drop of tincture or rhubarb without having first ascertained whether rhubarb is the most suitable, the only appropriate remedy for the case? Homoeopathy which, by unwearied, multiplied experiments, discovered that it is only in rare cases that more than a decillionth of a grain of arsenic should be given, and that only in cases where careful proving shows this medicine to be the only one perfectly suitable ? To which of these two modes of practice does then the honorary title of “thoughtless, rash system of poisoning” properly apply ?

There is yet another sect of practitioners who may be called hypocritical purists. If they are practical physicians, they, indeed, prescribe all sorts of substances that are injurious when misused, but before the world they wish to pose as patterns of innocence and caution. From their professional chairs and in their writings they give us the most alarming definition of poison; to listen to their declarations it would appear unadvisable to treat any imaginable disease with anything stronger than quick-grass, dandelion, oxymel and raspberry juice.

According to their definition, poisons are absolutely (i. e., under all circumstances, in all doses, in all cases) prejudicial to human life, and in this category they include (in order to prejudice against Homoeopathy), as suits their humor, a lot of substances which in all ages have been extensively employed by physicians for the cure of diseases. (sounds familiar? vr)But the employment of these substances would be a criminal offence had not every one of them occasionally proved of use. If, however, each of them had only proved itself curative on only one occasion -and it cannot be denied that this sometimes happened- then this blasphemous definition is at the same time a palpable absurdity. Absolutely and under all circumstances injurious and destructive, and yet at the same time salutary, is a contradiction in itself, is utter nonsense. If they would wriggle out of this contradiction, they allege, as a subterfuge, that these substances have more frequently proved injurious than useful.

“But did the more frequent injury caused by these substances come from these substances themselves, or from their improper employment, i. e., from those who made an unskillful use of them in diseases for which they were not suitable ? These medicines do not administer themselves in diseases, they must be administered by men ; and if they were beneficial at any time, it was because they were at one time appropriately administered by somebody ; it was because they might always be beneficial, if men never made any other than a suitable use of them. Hence it follows that whenever these substances were hurtful and destructive they were so merely on account of having been inappropriately employed. Therefore all the injury is attributable to the unskillfulness of their employers…”.

Anapol Schwartz Vaccine Lawyers Settle Multimillion Dollar Flu Vaccine Case involving Guillain-Barre Syndrome

Posted by JackieFedeli

Sarah Behie’s reaction to the flu vaccine began within a week when she started experiencing flu-like symptoms including fever, muscle aches, and weakness. She went to the emergency room but was sent home. A few weeks later, she was admitted to the hospital, unable to walk.

Behie was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome, a rare but paralyzing disorder that attacks the nerves and the immune system. There is no cure for GBS, but physical therapy can lessen the severity of GBS.

Four years later, she has still not fully recovered. She is bed and wheelchair bound in a nursing facility. Sarah’s vaccine injury lawyers filed her vaccine injury claim with the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program in Washington, D.C. The settlement will cover not only her medical expenses and life care expenses, but it will also reimburse her for pain and suffering, and lost earnings resulting from her adverse reaction to the flu vaccine. The expected lifetime payout of Sarah’s settlement is $11.6 million.

“While there is no sum of money that can bring Sarah back to her healthy condition before receiving the flu vaccine, we are thrilled that Sarah will now that the beans to obtain the appropriate and necessary medical treatment to deal with this tragic disease,” vaccine lawyer Lawrence Cohan said.

Lawrence Cohan is a partner at Anapol Schwartz. He is nationally recognized for his success in litigating vaccine lawsuits as well as other personal injury matters. He was named a Top 100 Lawyer in Pennsylvania by Super Lawyers, and he was voted 2013 Lawyer of the Year in Mass Tort and Class Actions by Best Lawyers.

David Carney is an associate at Anapol Schwartz who concentrates his practice in vaccine lawsuits and medical malpractice lawsuits. Carney is a member of the Vaccine Injury Petitioner’s Bar Association. In 2013, he assisted Cohan with a $9 million settlement with a lifetime payout of $40 million on behalf of a boy diagnosed with encephalitis caused by a chicken pox vaccine.

Secret vaccine trials in the 1930s

Thousands of children in Irish care homes at centre of ‘baby graves scandal’ were used in secret vaccine trials in the 1930s

  • Scientists secretly gave 2,051 children and babies diphtheria vaccine
  • They were used as guinea pigs for drugs giant Burroughs Wellcome in 1930s
  • Academic Michael Dwyer uncovered shock truth in old medical records
  • He found no evidence of consent, nor of how many died or were affected
  • Comes as Irish PM intervenes from U.S. over scandal of mass baby grave
  • Hundreds of babies are believed to have been buried at former baby home
  • Enda Kenny says he’s ordered his officials to examine ‘if there are others’

By Harriet Arkell and Neil Michael

Scientists secretly vaccinated more than 2,000 children in religious-run homes in suspected illegal drug trials, it emerged today.

Old medical records show that 2,051 children and babies in Irish care homes were given a one-shot diphtheria vaccine for international drugs giant Burroughs Wellcome between 1930 and 1936.

There is no evidence that consent was ever sought, nor any records of how many may have died or suffered debilitating side-effects as a result.

The scandal was revealed as Irish premier, Enda Kenny, ordered ministers to see whether there are more mass baby graves after the discovery that 800 infants may be buried in a septic tank outside a former mother and baby home in Tuam, Co. Galway.

 The Taioseach intervened from the United States yesterday to say that he had ordered his officials to ‘see what the scale is, what’s involved here, and whether this is isolated or if there are others around the country that need to be looked at.’

Michael Dwyer, of Cork University’s School of History, found the child vaccination data by trawling through tens of thousands of medical journal articles and archive files.

He discovered that the trials were carried out before the vaccine was made available for commercial use in the UK.

Homes where children were secretly tested included Bessborough, in Co. Cork and Sean Ross Abbey in Roscrea, Co. Tipperary, both of which are at the centre of the mass baby graves scandal.

Other institutions where children may also have been vaccinated include Cork orphanages St Joseph’s Industrial School for Boys, run by the Presentation Brothers, and St Finbarr’s Industrial School for Girls, run by the Sisters of the Good Shepherd.

In Dublin, it is believed that children for the trials came from St Vincent’s Industrial School, Goldenbridge, St Joseph’s School for Deaf Boys, Cabra, and St Saviours’s Dominican Orphanage.

But Mr Dwyer said: ‘What I have found is just the tip of a very large and submerged iceberg.

‘The fact that no record of these trials can be found in the files relating to the Department of Local Government and Public Health, the Municipal Health Reports relating to Cork and Dublin, or the Wellcome Archives in London, suggests that vaccine trials would not have been acceptable to government, municipal authorities, or the general public.

‘However, the fact that reports of these trials were published in the most prestigious medical journals suggests that this type of human experimentation was largely accepted by medical practitioners and facilitated by authorities in charge of children’s residential institutions.’

A spokesman for GSK – formerly Wellcome – said: ‘The activities that have been described to us date back over 70 years and, if true, are clearly very distressing.

‘We would need further details to investigate what actually took place, but the practices outlined certainly don’t reflect how modern clinical trials are carried out. We conduct our trials to the same high scientific and ethical standards, no matter where in the world they are run.’

A spokeswoman for the Sisters of Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary, the order that ran Bessborough and Sean Ross Abbey, said that like GSK, they would also welcome an independent inquiry.

Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin called on the Irish government to add vaccine trials into the investigative remit of any inquiry into the mother and baby homes.

He said: ‘We need to start with an independent investigation into the mother and baby homes which would be followed by a wider separate investigation into the vaccine testing.’

Historian Catherine Corless, whose discovery of the suspected mass baby grave at Tuam was revealed by the Mail earlier this week, said her study of death records for the St Mary’s home run by Catholic Bon Secours nuns from 1925-1961 pointed to the existence of the mass grave.

The Irish PM interrupted a trade visit to San Francisco to order an inquiry in the Tuam home and others, saying that Dublin must decide what is the ‘best thing to do in the interest of dealing with yet another element of our country’s past.’

St Mary’s was one of several such ‘mother and baby’ homes for ‘fallen women’ who had become pregnant outside marriage in early 20th century Ireland.

Another such institution was the Sean Ross Abbey in Tipperary, was where Philomena Lee gave up her son for adoption in the 1950s. Her story was made into the Oscar-nominated film ‘Philomena’ last year.

The ‘mother and baby’ homes accommodated women who were ostracised from their own families and had nowhere else to turn.

Under conservative Catholic teaching of the time, children born outside of marriage were not baptised and were therefore denied a Catholic burial on consecrated ground.

 

Antibiotic crisis bigger than Aids as common infections will kill, WHO warns

Common infections and minor scratches could soon kill because antibiotics are becoming useless against new superbugs, World Health Organisation warns

The crisis is bigger and more urgent than the AIDS epidemic of the 1980s  Photo: Alamy

A child’s scratched knee from falling off their bike, common bladder infections among the elderly in care homes and routine surgery to replace broken hips could all become fatal as antibiotics are becoming increasingly useless, the World Health Organisation has said.

The crisis is bigger and more urgent than the Aids epidemic of the 1980s, it was warned.

UK experts said the ‘era of safe medicine is coming to an end’ and government funds must be pumped into the production of new drugs.

In the foreword to the report Dr Keiji Fukuda, WHO’s Assistant Director-General for Health Security, wrote: “A post-antibiotic era — in which common infections and minor injuries can kill — far from being an apocalyptic fantasy, is instead a very real possibility for the 21st century.”

He said: “Unless we take significant actions to improve efforts to prevent infections and also change how we produce, prescribe and use antibiotics, the world will lose more and more of these global public health goods and the implications will be devastating.”

He said modern medicine, fromthe treatment of urinary tract infections and pneumonia in babies to chemotherapy and kidney dialysis are under threat.

“This is not an abstract problem. We have a big problem now and it is going to get bigger.

“What do we do when we have infections we cannot treat or when we lose the ability to protect people when having chemotherapy? I think there are very concrete implications, ” he said.

The report, Antimicrobial resistance: global report on surveillance, focuses on antibiotic resistance in seven different bacteria responsible for common, serious diseases such as sepsis, diarrhoea, pneumonia, urinary tract infections and gonorrhoea.

It is the most comprehensive picture of drug resistance across the globe with data from 114 countries.

It found that antibiotic resistance is present in all areas of the world and is growing.

Over the last 30 years no new types of antibiotics have been developed, the WHO said.

Dr Danilo Lo Fo Wong, Senior Adviser Antimicrobial Resistance at WHO Europe, told the Telegraph: “A child falling off their bike and developing a fatal infection would be a freak occurrence in the UK but that is where we are heading.

“Antibiotic resistance travels with infectious diseases and infectious diseases travel around the world. Whatever good is being done in the UK and elsewhere it can be made redundant by a lack of action elsewhere in the world.”

The report comes after England’s Chief Medical Officer, Dame Sally Davis, said the issue ‘scared’ her and called for greater restriction of antibiotics and incentives for pharmaceutical companies to produce new medicines.

Professor Laura Piddock, Director of Antibiotic Action and Professor of Microbiology at University of Birmingham said: “The world needs to respond as it did to the Aids crisis of the Eighties.

“To do this, we need to be ambitious to succeed – moves such as a fully funded mandatory global surveillance programme will document the size of the problem and funded public education will help minimise use – but these are just starting points. We still need a better understanding of all aspects of resistance as well as new discovery, research and development of new antibiotics.”

She said governments need to pump money into research to develop new drugs and added that UK funding on antibiotic research as dropped to less than one per cent of available research funds.

Dr Lo Fo Wong warned that antibiotic resistance was bigger than the 1980s Aids crisis because “everyone is potentially in danger”.

The report highlighted drug resistance in viral infections also, such as HIV treatments, Tamiflu which is used to combat flu during epidemics and in some fungal infections.

Dr Paul Cosford, Director for Health Protection and Medical Director at Public Health England, said: “Whilst the UK does not have the levels of antibiotic resistance seen in some parts of the world we do see patients with infections resistant to antibiotics and we take these very seriously.

“Combating the development and spread of antibiotic resistance requires a multifaceted approach and PHE is working very closely with its stakeholders to address this. Our work is contributing to the new cross-government national strategy that aims to tackle one of the biggest health care issues of our time.”

Members of the public, health workers and pharmacists, and policymakers could all play a part in fighting the superbugs, said the WHO.

Patients could help by only using antibiotics when they were prescribed by a doctor, making sure they completed the full course of treatment even if feeling better, and never sharing antibiotics or using left over prescriptions.

Health professionals were reminded only to prescribe and dispense antibiotics when they are truly needed and to ensure the right drugs were used for particular infections.

Antibiotic use in food production can be reduced, Dr Fukuda said, and better diagnostic tests need to be used in health care so drugs can be focused on those infections they will be most effective against.

The rise of antibiotic resistance will mean patients will spend longer in hospital, incurring greater costs for health care systems globally, Dr Fukuda said.

Parents told to vaccinate newborn or have him seized by the state

BIRMINGHAM, AL — Parents of a healthy newborn infant were told to consent to injecting him with drugs or lose him to the state.   This successful blackmail scheme was made possible by the state’s horrifying ability to seize children without due process.

Aliea Bidwell and Ben Gray became new parents on March 14th, 2014.  Their experience turned from joy to dismay when their parenthood was already being threatened on their son’s first day outside of the womb.  Ben and Aliea gave a detailed account of their experience to The INQUISITR.

When the parents expressed their desire to forgo vaccines for their hours-old baby, they drew the ire of a particularly nasty staff member at St. Vincent’s Hospital.  A pediatrician named Dr. Terry M. Bierd allegedly told the parents that they would either submit their son, Aaron, to a Hepatitis B vaccine or else she would call Alabama’s Child Protective Services (CPS) to report them as negligent parents.  The threat was very real, in a system which allows families to be split apart without a trial, without evidence, without a defense, without a jury — without a law even being broken.

As the parents balked, the threat was repeated throughout the day and made in front of a dozen family members, The INQUISITR reports.   A time was set for the ultimatum to expire.

Dr. Bierd allegedly said that once Aaron was in the hands of social workers, he would be injected immediately and it would be difficult for them to get him back.

It should be noted that there is absolutely no law requiring vaccines of any kind for any newborn.   Declining vaccines at birth is common and completely within the rights of the parents.   Even when children become of age for public school, there are exemptions to the vaccine suggestions in all 50 states.

The absence of any legal footing has not stopped the social workers from seizing children over medical disagreements before.  Pennsylvania parents Scott and Jodi Ferris found themselves in a nearly identical situation recently.  When they refused an injection for their baby girl, Mr. and Mrs. Ferris were thrown out of the hospital and the girl was taken into state custody — based only on the whims of a social worker.

In light of the intimidating circumstances, Ben and Aliea complied with the doctor’s demands, doing so under duress.

Although the Gray family didn’t have to deal directly with the state, Dr. Bierd’s threats coupled with the existence of the unaccountable child-snatching agency was enough to coerce their parental decision making.   Its not even clear if Dr. Bierd will face any consequences.  Parents need to beware of the profound implications that exist for their families when they come into disagreements with professional control-freaks.
