The Covid-19 Vaccine: A False Hope?
Before the international medical community and the general public puts all of its hope into a vaccine against Covid-19, perhaps we need to hear some words of warning that two of America’s leading proponents of vaccines, Paul Offit, MD and Peter Hotez, MD, have for the type of virus that Covid-19 is.
Offit, Hotez and even Anthony Fauci have acknowledged that any new coronavirus vaccine could trigger lethal immune reactions if and when vaccinated people come in contact with the wild virus. However, rather than proceeding with caution, Fauci, with the encouragement of select governmental and medical authorities, has sought to fast track vaccines, even referring to this project as Operation Warp Speed.
With partial funding by Bill Gates, they are seeking to test this vaccine without adequate animal studies that could provide important safety information and experience and could alert us to an early warning of runaway immune response. Gates is so concerned about this real danger that he says his organizations and vaccine manufacturers won’t distribute vaccines until governments agree to indemnify them against lawsuits.
One cannot help but see the contradiction here when we are told that the vaccine will be safe but no company or individual wants to have any degree of liability for potential (and inevitable) serious vaccine damage.
It is shocking to note that even the MMR vaccine, which is arguably the most tested of all vaccines, has actually had very little safety testing on it, according to one of the most prestigious medical journals in the world, The Cochrane Library. The MMR vaccine has clearly been shown to significantly reduce the incidence of mumps, measles, and rubella, however (!), the safety evidence of this extremely common vaccine is largely inadequate. The exact quote from the Conclusions summarized on page 2 of this review of research on the MMR vaccine is: “The design and reporting of safety outcomes in MMR vaccine studies, both pre- and post-marketing, are largely inadequate.”
It is further shocking that one of the newest vaccines to the human papillomavirus (HPV) was evaluated by the British Medical Journal (BMJ), and it was found that none (!) of the 27 studies used a real placebo to compare with the vaccine. Although using a real placebo is the only real and scientific way to test for safety, the researchers purposefully set-up each of these studies to avoid comparing it with an inactive medicinal agent. Instead, all of these studies used what is called “active comparators,” a mixture of potentially neurotoxic agents such as aluminum, that is normally placed in vaccines (they simply removed the pathogen in the placebo).
And thus, it was not a surprise when one of the world’s leading researchers on aluminum discovered excessive amounts of aluminum in brain tissue in people who had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and, yes, even autism, as compared with humans who did not have neurological diseases. Of special importance, this study was published in Scientific Reports, a journal published by the most respected scientific publishing companies in the world, Nature.com.
The media have repeated ad nauseam the assertion that vaccines do not cause autism, despite the fact that two common neurotoxic ingredients in many vaccines today and over the past two decades has been mercury and aluminum, both of which have literally hundreds of studies that have been associated with various neurological diseases and syndromes, including autism.
More significantly, the media has conveniently kept out of the spotlight the fact that the senior scientist at the CDC who was a primary author of a major 2004 study on this subject has admitted to purposefully not disclosing certain data and was even encouraged to destroy documents. This senior scientist at the CDC asserts that their data showed a greater than 250% increase in autism rates amongst black children who were vaccinated as compared with those who weren’t vaccinated. This senior scientist, William Thompson, has obtained whistleblower status and has agreed to provide all relevant information if and when a Congressional hearing requested him to do so (he has been waiting eight years to testify).
However, the CDC has not allowed Thompson to speak to the press, and all efforts to have any Congressional hearing has been thwarted. Even shortly after President Trump was elected, he met with vaccine safety advocate attorney Robert Kennedy, Jr. to establish a vaccine safety commission. As Kennedy recently reported,
“I agreed to do it, but immediately after that, Pfizer wrote a $1 million check to his inauguration committee. He then appointed a Pfizer lobbyist, Alex Azar, to run the HHS, and he handpicked a Pfizer insider, Scott Gottlieb, to run the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. As soon as they got in there, they shut down the Vaccine Safety Commission and any other questioning of vaccines.”
Although the Cochrane Library’s review ultimately recommended this vaccine as safe and effective, Peter C. Gøtzsche, MD, one of the co-founders of the Cochrane Collaboration (now, simply called, Cochrane), and the author of the above described critique of the HPV vaccine that was published in the BMJ was summarily fired from the Cochrane. Four additional board members resigned in protest and two others were asked to leave the board, meaning that six members of this 13-member board left this scientific organization, resulting in significant turmoil.
It should be noted that this serious drama at the Cochrane begin shortly after they received a large grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. And since this time, the Cochrane has become less transparent, less independent, more agenda-driven, and more connected to Big Pharma.
Prior to all of this hyper-drama, Gøtzsche observed a very disturbing trend in medical research, and he wrote a book about these observations entitled Deadly Medicines and Organized Crime. Richard Smith, the very editor of the British Medical Journal wrote the Foreword to this book, which claims directly and powerfully that the pharmaceutical industry has become a modern-day mafia.
Houston, we have a problem.
Are There Solutions?
Due to the pandemic and to the need today for a true and legitimate scientific medicine, a real revolution in health and medical research and health and medical care is needed.
Our challenge here is that one of Big Media’s largest advertiser is Big Pharma who purposefully concentrate their advertising dollars on news programs as a convenient and effective way to own the news that people receive. As long as Big Media is funded primarily through Big Pharma advertising dollars, we have to question the potential bias involved in news reporting due to the avoidance of unfavorable or even criminally liable information about the advertisers.
This article was not written to provide an overall answer to all of the complex issues that have been raised here, but broadly speaking, here are some proposals to begin the process of reconciliation of the complex issues surrounding health, medicine, and scientific research. At first blush, some of these proposals may seem radical, but present dire crises urgently require and make imperative significant change from the established structures that have allowed the problems to develop and deepen.
Due to the strong influence that advertising dollars have on how the media reports on health and medical issues, Big Pharma companies should not be allowed to receive unfettered access to advertising on media. Just as tobacco had to restrict their advertising, as did alcohol, Big Pharma should likewise be restricted. If our society wishes to place special value on impartiality of news and public information via the media, then transparency is vital, as is not allowing one industry to dominate influence of public information.
Net neutrality needs to be a primary value. The internet needs to not discriminate based on user, content, website, platform, application, type of equipment, source address, destination address, or method of communication. With a clear exception for censoring hate speech of different sorts, there should be no censorship on the internet, especially of different points of view about health and medical topics.
The Cochrane should invite back the six members of their Board of Directors who left, and the other seven members should be required to tender their resignation.
Governmental health agencies, medical and health organizations, and the media need to issue warnings to the general public about using fever-suppressing drugs during viral infections. Because fever is an important, even vital, defense of the body to viral infection, suppressing a fever commonly leads to complications. Further, ibuprofen (Advil) and naproxen (Aleve) are commonly prescribed to reduce a fever and/or provide pain relief, but they are also known to lead to blood clots, a condition that is becoming increasingly common in Covid-19 patients.
The health and medical community in conjunction with the media should explore and educate the public on ways that they can strengthen their immune system. Such practical information may make it less likely to have infection become the disease and reduce the rate of complications from this disease that lead to serious illness or death. First steps in this direction were discussed in an article (May, 2020), entitled “The Other Half of the Infectious Disease Equation: What about Our Immune System?” Ultimately, whether one agrees or disagrees with what Dr. Judy Mikovits asserts in the film, Plandemic, we need to apply the same scientific analysis to her work as we do to other medical research.
And we need to apply the same high level of scrutiny to the emerging Covid-19 vaccines that are presently in development AND to all other vaccines that have been accepted, especially those that have been mandated.
Finally, we have to come to terms with the fact that, to date, the media has been consistently mis-informing the public on issues of safety of vaccines. Despite the massive amount of pro-vaccine propaganda that the media have expounded, the safety research on vaccines has cleverly been hidden, lied about, or simply not studied adequately. Finally, the demonizing and villainizing of people, parents, and scientists who insist upon more accuracy and transparency about vaccine safety evidence has to stop.
To those of us who want to honor modern medicine and modern science, we have to separate out the powerful economic interests that can infect the scientific method and the media so that whatever science discovers and confirms can and will help, not hurt, humankind.
Renowned scientist Richard Feynman referred to science as “the culture of doubt.” Whether one agrees or disagrees with the ideas of Dr. Judy Mikovits, she is posing some important questions of doubt on the emerging (but changing) view of this pandemic. Brazilian scientist and professor Marcos Nogueira Eberlin takes this a step further by asserting that “science is the culture of debate, of divergence of opinions.”
It is time for good science and good and healthy dialogue and debate to begin. This pandemic is too new to be anything but humble.
