As Merck preps newest HPV vaccine, questions remain about Gardisil’s safety

May 16th, 2014|Human Papillomavirus, Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccine Ineffectiveness, Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccine Risk|

The pediatrician was persistent.

This was a life-saving vaccine, afterall. Why wouldn’t Theresa Tomoser want to vaccinate her 14-year-old daughter?

In December 2009, the Tampa-area mother felt like she couldn’t put it off any longer and took her daughter, Danielle, to get the shot.

The shot was the first in a series of what should have been three doses of the quadrivalent human papillomavirus vaccine, better known as Gardisil.

Merck Pharmaceuticals was first approved by the Food and Drug Administration in 2006 to use Gardisil in females ages 9 to 26.

Merck’s research had shown the vaccine to prevent HPV types 16 and 18, which are the cause of about 70 percent of all cervical cancers, as well as types 6 and 11, which are responsible for genital warts.

Influence of pediatric vaccines…

April 8th, 2014|Authorities Speak Out, Autism (ASD), Developmental Disorders, Vaccine Risks|

I am outraged each time I hear, “There is no known cause for autism” and “It’s been proven that vaccines don’t cause autism”. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, “autism-like” reactions were reproduced in animal studies using the US VACCINE SCHEDULE over 4 years ago. There is no mystery surrounding autism, only DENIAL. Read “Influence of pediatric vaccines on amydgala growth and opioid ligand binding in rhesus macaque infants: A pilot study”, published in Acta Neurobiological Experimentals in 2010.

Ebola Outbreak in Guinea Spreads to Liberia, Sierra Leone

March 31st, 2014|blog, Ebola Vaccine Risk, How & Why, Vaccine Risks|

ABC US News | ABC Business News


An Ebola outbreak in Guinea that has killed 78 people has crossed borders into Liberia and Sierra Leona, health officials said.

A total of four people in Liberia and Sierra Leone are thought to have contracted the Ebolavirus while traveling to Guinea, according to the World Health Organization. At least three of them have died.

Senegal has closed its border crossings with Guinea until further notice, The Associated Press reported.

In vitro study of thimerosal reactions in human whole blood and plasma surrogate samples

March 28th, 2014|Authorities Speak Out, Thimerosal|


Because of its bactericidal and fungicidal properties, thimerosal is used as a preservative in drugs and vaccines and is thus deliberately injected into the human body. In aqueous environment, it decomposes into thiosalicylic acid and the ethylmercury cation. This organomercury fragment is a potent neurotoxin and is suspected to have similar toxicity and bioavailability like the methylmercury cation. In this work, human whole blood and physiological simulation solutions were incubated with thimerosal to investigate its behaviour and binding partners in the blood stream. Inductively coupled plasma with optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES) was used for total mercury determination in different blood fractions, while liquid chromatography (LC) coupled to electrospray ionisation time-of-flight (ESI-TOF) and inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) provided information on the individual mercury species in plasma surrogate samples. Analogous behaviour of methylmercury and ethylmercury species in human blood was shown and an ethylmercury-glutathione adduct was identified.

Aluminum is a potential environmental factor for Crohn’s disease induction: extended hypothesis

March 28th, 2014|Aluminum, Authorities Speak Out|


Aluminum (Al) is a common environmental compound with immune-adjuvant activity and granulomatous inflammation inducer. Al exposure in food, additives, air, pharmaceuticals, and water pollution is ubiquitous in Western culture. Crohn’s disease (CD) is a chronic relapsing intestinal inflammation in genetically susceptible individuals and is influenced by yet unidentified environmental factors. It is hypothesized, in the present review, that Al is a potential factor for induction or maintaining the inflammation in CD. Epidemiologically, CD incidence is higher in urban areas, where microparticle pollution is prevalent. Al immune activities share many characteristics with the immune pathology of CD: increased antigen presentation and APCs activation, many luminal bacterial or dietary compounds can be adsorbed to the metal and induce Th1 profile activity, promotion of humoral and cellular immune responses, proinflammatory, apoptotic, oxidative activity, and stress-related molecule expression enhancement, affecting intestinal bacterial composition and virulence, granuloma formation, colitis induction in an animal model of CD, and terminal ileum uptake. The Al-bacterial interaction, the microparticles homing the intestine together with the extensive immune activity, put Al as a potential environmental candidate for CD induction and maintenance.

Autism rates rise 30 percent in two-year span: CDC

March 28th, 2014|Autism (ASD), How & Why, Thimerosal|

According to the CDC, autism now affects 1 in 68 children, a shocking 30% rise in just two years. Despite the fact that autism is devastating families all across the country, the only thing our government claims to know is that is certainly cannot be linked to their aggressive vaccine schedule. Yet a growing number of doctors, researchers and families are convinced otherwise and do blame vaccines for the explosion of autism. A simple study of the vaccinated versus unvaccinated American children could settle this debate once and for all. It would seem that our health officials would be anxious to conduct such a study to exonerate the vaccine program. However for more than a decade the US government and medical community have refused to support such research.

Long-term Persistence of Vaccine-Derived Aluminum Hydroxide is Associated with Chronic Cognitive Dysfunction

March 26th, 2014|Aluminum hydroxide|


Macrophagic myofasciitis (MMF) is an emerging condition, characterized by specific muscle lesions assessing long-term persistence of aluminum hydroxide within macrophages at the site of previous immunization. Affected patients mainly complain of arthromyalgias, chronic fatigue, and cognitive difficulties. We designed a comprehensive battery of neuropsychological tests to prospectively delineate MMF-associated cognitive dysfunction (MACD). Compared to control patients with arthritis and chronic pain, MMF patients had pronounced and specific cognitive impairment. MACD mainly affected (i) both visual and verbal memory; (ii) executive functions, including attention, working memory, and planning; and (iii) left ear extinction at dichotic listening test. Cognitive deficits did not correlate with pain, fatigue, depression, or disease duration. Pathophysiological mechanisms underlying MACD remain to be determined. In conclusion, long-term persistence of vaccine-derived aluminum hydroxide within the body assessed by MMF is associated with cognitive dysfunction, not solely due to chronic pain, fatigue and depression.

Aluminum hydroxide injections lead to motor deficits and motor neuron degeneration

March 26th, 2014|Aluminum hydroxide, Authorities Speak Out, Gulf War Syndrome|


Gulf War Syndrome is a multi-system disorder afflicting many veterans of Western armies in the 1990–1991 Gulf War. A number of those afflicted may show neurological deficits including various cognitive dysfunctions and motor neuron disease, the latter expression virtually indistinguishable from classical amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) except for the age of onset. This ALS “cluster” represents the second such ALS cluster described in the literature to date. Possible causes of GWS include several of the adjuvants in the anthrax vaccine and others. The most likely culprit appears to be aluminum hydroxide. In an initial series of experiments, we examined the potential toxicity of aluminum hydroxide in male, outbred CD-1 mice injected subcutaneously in two equivalent-to-human doses. After sacrifice, spinal cord and motor cortex samples were examined by immunohistochemistry. Aluminum-treated mice showed significantly increased apoptosis of motor neurons and increases in reactive astrocytes and microglial proliferation within the spinal cord and cortex. Morin stain detected the presence of aluminum in the cytoplasm of motor neurons with some neurons also testing positive for the presence of hyper-phosphorylated tau protein, a pathological hallmark of various neurological diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease and frontotemporal dementia. A second series of experiments was conducted on mice injected with six doses of aluminum hydroxide. Behavioural analyses in these mice revealed significant impairments in a number of motor functions as well as diminished spatial memory capacity. The demonstrated neurotoxicity of aluminum hydroxide and its relative ubiquity as an adjuvant suggest that greater scrutiny by the scientific community is warranted.

Colorado House Passes Forced Vaccination Bill: One of 18 States Pushing Corporate Drugs

March 25th, 2014|How & Why, Vaccine Ingredients, Vaccine Risks|

Parents will have little choice over whether or not to have their children vaccinated in Colorado now, due to a bipartisan measure passed by Colorado’s House Health, Insurance and Environment Committee this past Thursday. Parents who intended to claim the ‘opt out’ available in a current rendition of Colorado’s current law, due to religious or personal beliefs, will find it much more difficult to do so.
