Note: Amusing video but not as amusing as Monsanto’s PR man Patrick Moore refusing a drink of Glyphosate
Note: Rima, after posting that cultural analysis, I had “cowpox” myself with a booster shot of your factual critique of vaccines.
Public health officials state that vaccines are safe and effective, but the truth is far more complicated. Coercive vaccination polices deprive people of free and informed consent, and national polls show that Americans are increasingly concerned about vaccine safety. Vaccine Epidemic focuses on the searing debate surrounding vaccination choice in the United States. Featuring more than twenty experts from the fields of ethics, law, science, medicine, business, and history, Vaccine Epidemic urgently calls for reform.
Not too long ago, lethal infections were feared in the Western world. Since that time, many countries have undergone a transformation from disease cesspools to much safer, healthier habitats. Starting in the mid-1800s, there was a steady drop in deaths from all infectious diseases, decreasing to relatively minor levels by the early 1900s. The history of that transformation involves famine, poverty, filth, lost cures, eugenicist doctrine, individual freedoms versus state might, protests and arrests over vaccine refusal, and much more. Today, we are told that medical interventions increased our lifespan and single-handedly prevented masses of deaths. But is this really true? Dissolving Illusions details facts and figures from long-overlooked medical journals, books, newspapers, and other sources. Using myth-shattering graphs, this book shows that vaccines, antibiotics, and other medical interventions are not responsible for the increase in lifespan and the decline in mortality from infectious diseases. If the medical profession could systematically misinterpret and ignore key historical information, the question must be asked, “What else is ignored and misinterpreted today?” Perhaps the best reason to know our history is so that the worst parts are never repeated.

THE internet is stuffed with garbage. Anti-vaccination websites make the front page of Google, and fact-free “news” stories spread like wildfire. Google has devised a fix – rank websites according to their truthfulness … The software works by tapping into the Knowledge Vault, the vast store of facts that Google has pulled off the internet. Facts the web unanimously agrees on are considered a reasonable proxy for truth. Web pages that contain contradictory information are bumped down the rankings.
Note: Rigging the game to support your corporate friends, huh Google? What sites will be used to fact-check, wikipedia? Snopes.com…jaw drop! Google’s Knowledge Vault could become a huge Garbage In Garbage Out knowledge base of vaccines good good, vitamin C bad, GMO good, organic foods BAD. You have to wonder and be amazed at the refusal to allow nutritional and health choice.
The very simple and obvious resolution is an OPEN and PUBLIC debate on the efficacy and safety of vaccines.
This OPEN and PUBLIC discussion will NEVER happen because the vaccine industry has a flimsy hold on the belief of the safety and efficacy of their product.
The mere fact that google seeks to alter its algorithm which has been a key part of its success and dominance over Bing and Yahoo indicates the collusion of this company and its peers over a single issue – vaccines.
That the issue of vaccines goes beyond just profit is clearer. There is a strong ideological push to maintain vaccines as a tool, which depends on an uninformed and unaware global populace.
As a blogger I am pleased by google showing its hand, next time we cannot expect a public declaration. It will simply change its ranking method.
Google rigging or censoring the search results is NOW a self confessed FACT!
Why do the vaccine pedlars have commercial immunity from producing faulty and dangerous products?
We could say that maybe in 1986 when the National Childhood vaccine injury act was passed, the technology or “science” was lacking. However in 2011, the US supreme court no less chose to uphold the law preventing consumers from suing pharmaceutical companies for damages due to vaccines.
This act contradicts the belief system concerning survival of the fittest/wisest/best. We cannot escape the parallel with the banking sector. Failed businesses (banks) are not allowed to die as the Darwinian belief systems states.
Using ordinary non-cartel business logic, if a medical product should prove dangerous, faulty and unprofitable, it should be withdrawn as the commercial risks will become high.
The fact that the law exists validates and underscores the concern that the industry protects their profits with impunity.
Pharma fraud and banking fraud, the same moral hazard.
The question again, if vaccines are so effective and safe why the indemnity from commercial and criminal liability?
Even as the FDA threatens sellers of nano-silver for claiming their products are anti-bacterial, Corning creates a new glass for smartphones and tablets that uses nano-silver as an anti-bacterial!
Beautiful and reproducible test!
Does the Silver ion glass reduce bacterial activity? Yes or No?
Can Silver ions be ingested safely? Yes or No?
As we are doing NO harm – Hippocratic oath – with Silver, can we test it as a possible solution to Ebola?
The answer? of course NOT! The global pharma fraud must be maintained.
