Stories/Other Posts/Links from Nov 15, 2013

Today's list of links to various stories/posts/links that I've come across:

Here's an excellent editorial with good concrete suggestions for correction: 

This link was embedded in the above editorial and is a bit longer:

From 2012 - about the danger of peer pressure and conformity within science, how this
impedes progress and the quest for true truth:
His closing sentence is spot.on!

From down under ... while this is regarding a med error (child given an adult med) it begs
the question of synergistic toxicity of giving multiple vaccines to anyone at one time. It is
unknown what caused this child's reaction - was it the larger dose of antigen, or was it one
or more of the other ingredients, or a combination of it all. But might a similar mechanism
be happening when children are given multiple vaccines in the same visit? There are no
good studies (ie: double-blind, randomized controlled trials) of this practice, for either
children or adults).

This is from the NVIC (National Vaccine Information Center)  archives (2011), and it discusses problems with analyzing data from VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System);
One of the primary problems with VAERS is that it is voluntary self-reporting, so we really do
not know the extent of problems people may be having post-vaccination. We wouldn't expect
people to report the lack of problems, so that's why under-counting or under-reporting would be
more likely.

This is from Australia 2011 ... may be another version of the effect of simultaneous exposure
to multiple antigens (or some other cause) -
Here's an interesting quote from the above article:
""The TGA said yesterday different manufacturing processes could explain why only CSL's vaccine caused such widespread side-effects in children last year.
"While the different brands of seasonal influenza vaccines use the same strains of virus, there are differences in manufacturing processes that may result in differences in the biology of the vaccines," an administration spokeswoman said.""

This article from March 2013 reviews effect of peer pressure on a researcher who was reluctant to publish his findings of a undesired side effect of a vaccine. He had observed how another clinician was treated who had published research regarding untoward effects of vaccines (Dr. Andrew Wakefield) and he, oddly enough, did not want to go through that! Certain findings will not be tolerated, even if they are factual. 

This article is also from March 2013, discusses adverse reactions linked with Hep B vaccination: 
It notes: "For most children, the risk of a serious vaccine reaction may be 100 times greater than the risk of hepatitis B." 
This begs the question, why are we giving this vaccine routinely to infants who are not at risk?
It's not even rational - what infant is having sex and/or injecting him or herself with drugs using needles? Using this vaccine only makes sense if mom is a known chronic carrier of Hep B. 

From July 2013, also about Hep B: 

From the Federal Register, adverse reactions from flu vaccination is compensable 
under the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program - 

This article alleging fraud regarding vaccine efficacy (at Merck): 

This article about how vaccination does not equal protection: 

From 2010 ... conflicts of interest - 

Babies with higher than expected mercury levels (2012): 
It's assumed to be d/t fish and coal power plants, but many vaccines still 
contain mercury. Assumption isn't science. 

Baby dead hours after vaccination (UK, 2007): 

From NVIC, information about Thimerosal: 

1995 - from NVIC about detecting adverse reactions from vaccines - 

This article (published in 2009) discusses what may have contributed to the high
mortality and morbidity of the 1918 flu pandemic - 

Many links here with the Cochrane Database: 

From 2012: A rare moment of honesty from a pro-vaccine insider: 

From NVIC, not dated that I could see - about adjuvants: 

From Aug 2013, baby dead after multiple vaccinations (occurred in 2012):
