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.
Moulden – A Search for Life and Truth

What we have done to each other [with vaccines] has produced the most profound damage to humankind by humankind in the history of humanity. And the reason why we got here is partly because of:
Our arrogance in thinking that we know everything. In physiology and medicine we do not know everything!
[Our greed] to advance our own self-interest to make money, to sell products and to advance corporate alliances. Commercialization has overtaken the fundamental human value of “do unto others as you would have others do unto you.” When society turns toward this human value, then we would all be working together for the greater good of each other. [However, other values have become more important] I don’t care whose feet I step on or how I get there as long as my American dream is realized. I don’t care who has to pay for it on the way of getting there. 
Dr Moulden died unexpectedly in November of 2013 at age 49.

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!
