In Vitality’s February 2015 issue, I published an article entitled “The Illusion of Vaccine Safety.” Shortly after the article was released, I received a letter from Edda West of Vaccine Choice Canada (VCC), who pointed out a significant error in the article. What follows is a correction of the error, along with an explanation.
Correction: Contrary to my statement that the MMR (measles-mumps-rubella) vaccine contains Thimerosol (a mercury-based preservative), the truth is that the MMR vaccine does not contain Thimerosol or any other heavy metal or toxic chemical. Furthermore, the Inactivated Poliovirus and Varicella (chicken pox) vaccines also do not contain Thimerosol either. http://www.fda.gov/BiologicsBloodVaccines/SafetyAvailability/Vaccines
Explanation: Unfortunately, in two paragraphs of my article the reader was led to believe that the MMR, polio, and chickenpox vaccines did contain such preservatives or adjuvants prior to 2003. This is incorrect. What the MMR, polio, and chickenpox vaccines DO contain is ‘recombinant human albumin’ and retroviruses (see: www.merck.ca/assets/en/pdf/products/MMR_II-PM_E.pdf ). It is these genetically modified substances that appear to have the same dangers associated with them as the heavy metal and chemical additives in the other vaccines. Therefore, all the additives in all vaccines carry the potential of interfering with neurological and brain development because they interfere with the DNA-controlled building program of the human genome.
The above correction not only fixes an unintended important error, but also highlights the fact that vaccines have basically no claim to safety, and are more dangerous than I had realized – this despite my years of reading on this issue, interviewing Robert F. Kennedy Jr. personally some years ago, speaking with the world renowned toxicologist Boyd Haley, and attending conferences of the American Academy for Environmental Medicine which developed the protocols for detoxing vaccinated children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The evidence shows that vaccines, as currently manufactured and deployed, are a public health hazard. I am most grateful to Edda West of VCC for having pointed out my error and providing the correct information.
I believe that I made this error because the legal actions, various political events, and the public ASD discussions tend to lump the non-Thimerosal containing vaccines together with those that do have such preservatives and adjuvants because this entire debate is concerned with the impacts of them all on public health. More specifically – the focus here is on the potential for any and all ingredients in vaccine formulas to trigger neurological damage in children receiving them. This fact is highlighted by the successful legal actions in the U.S. and Europe involving both types of vaccines found to have caused Autism Spectrum Disorder.
Research: As regards the science behind these issues, two research items are especially worthy of note:
1) The work of Laura Hewitson, who was able to produce autism in an animal model using these vaccines (see the list of Sources at the end of my article on Vitality’s website);
2) The September 2014 report in the Journal of Public Health and Epidemiology, which used the data of the “worldwide population-based cohort [from] the U.S., Western Australia, UK, and Denmark” (ie. all children vaccinated with the Thimerosal-free MMRII, Varicella, and Hepatitis” vaccines) since 1979 to find how many developed ASD. They write that “autistic disorder was significantly correlated” with those vaccines and is “coincident with the introduction of vaccines manufactured using human fetal cell lines containing fetal and retroviral contaminants” (and that’s just for the vaccines that do not contain toxic metals and chemicals). The same findings have been made in various research projects for those vaccines that do contain Thimerosal and other toxic materials, all of which have been shown for decades to be specifically harmful to neurological development.
It has only recently become possible to separate the vaccines with heavy metals and toxic chemicals from those with fetal cell lines, in terms of their mechanisms of damage. Previously, the manufacturers of vaccines, and the regulatory authorities working to protect them from legal challenge, have been able to muddy the waters by claiming that there is no proof of harm, given the different types of vaccines and the great variety of possible alleged sources of harm. Simultaneously, the CDC has used its formidable power to prevent funding for research that would clarify this murky mess, but even that diabolical effort is coming to an end now, given the first definitive world population study since 1979 cited above. It managed to do its work without CDC funding.
This error correction is perhaps what the Romans called ‘felix culpa’ (a fortunate error); it may increase awareness that accepting blindly the word of mainstream medicine’s health care providers without careful consideration could prove disastrous. Please consult my list of sources before using the Thimerosal-containing flu vaccine yourself, and before having your children exposed to the currently contaminated vaccines – which means all of them. It is equally imperative that the concept of vaccination gets science working for it, and for the benefit of humanity, rather than it being destroyed by marketing departments and corrupt regulatory authorities.
