When Vaccine Refusal is Not Unethical

A deep look into how the truth about vaccines is obfuscated and how that does not serve the public interest, if the goal is the best health of the population. GREAT POST!!!!! Please help IPAK continue to shine a light on the vaccine travesty of the 21st century, by scientifically evaluating the issues at hand.

THERE IS AN ENTRENCHED HERD MENTALITY AND GROUPTHINK phenomenon on the issue of the morality of vaccination refusal by those who scratch the surface of the issue that requires a specific constellation of embedded arbitrary values that both are not founded on basic logic and that also run counter to the norms and mores of relative value systems as they apply to individual vs. societal rights. In all of my writings to date, I have explored many issues, from natural vs. artificial herd immunity to miscalculations on the dose toxicity of aluminum by the US FDA. I now will tackle the unscrutinized presumption made by the herd that vaccinating one’s child is necessary and therefore should be a mandated moral duty of every parent.

The Medically Ineligible

First, let’s recall that “every parent” is an induction, which we disallow as an unwarranted generalization. That is to say, there must…

The Beginning of the End of Corporate Fascism in America

Probably some shredding parties going on in corporations across the globe…. you can run, you can shred, but WE KNOW and the WORLD WILL KNOW the corruption which places profits over people.

lifebiomedguru

WHEN HISTORIANS REVIEW THE EARLY 21st Century, the will note that a seismic shift occurred in which the People of the United State of America stood up, all at once it seemed, in August 2018, and began tearing apart a decades-old system of corruption. “Corporate fascism” is a difficult concept for some to wrap their heads around, given the classic definitions of Fascism specifically being (courtesy Merriam-Webster:)

a political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.

Corporate fascism is best defined, courtesy yours truly, as

an economic and political movement that exalts profit and the corporation above the people of any nation and that typically uses corruption, regulatory capture, entanglements, incentives and intimidation of elected…

What’s the demographic of non-vax parents?

1 out of 3 surveyed are conspiracy theorists based on the declaration by Government authorities that vaccines do not cause autism. I had no idea there were so many!

I’m reviewing a friend’s new book and he wrote in a sentence that 24.3% of people who voted in the 2016 presidential election agree with the statement “Vaccines have been shown to cause autism.”

And I was like, what? Did I already know this in 2016 and I forgot? I do turn off my Facebook account for months at a time… maybe I missed this.

I went to the source, which was a YouGov poll you can see here, endearingly headlined “Belief in conspiracy theories largely depends on political identity.”

The breakdown is this: 18% of Clinton voters who answered the YouGov poll completely believe vaccines can cause autism. And 31% of all voters who took the poll completely believe vaccines can cause autism. What a strange, half-assed way to present that information, right? What about the Trump voters?

Then I went looking

Show me the math that says a fully vaccinated population is healthier (defined including absence of chronic disease, rather than soley absense of infectious disease) than an unvaccinated or undervaccinated population. Because isn’t that the number we all what to know, that is that vaccine policy has led to a healthier population?

If you wanted to buy a product…

And the main safety-researcher of the product was the company selling it to you…

Would you automatically assume the product was safe and effective?

But you see, that’s the just the beginning of the problem. Suppose the company’s research was cited thousands of times in the press, as the authoritative standard of proof—and anyone who disputed that research was labeled a conspiracy theorist and a quack and a danger to the community and an anti-science lunatic.

Would you begin to suspect the company had awesome media connections? Would you suspect some very powerful people were backing the company?

This is exactly the situation with the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Read these two quotes:

The government’s Vaccine for Children Program (a CDC organization) purchases vaccines for about 50 percent of children in the U.S.” (The Atlantic…

Time for the journalists to take back their media.

lifebiomedguru

AS STEEPED IN THE PRIMARY BIOMEDICAL LITERATURE as my life is, I deeply appreciate the press when it covers advances, discoveries, controversies and new studies in science and medicine.

There are three types of such news articles, reflecting three types of reporters.  The first “articles”, Level C articles, are verbatim regurgitation of press releases from companies and universities.  The quotes from researchers are faithfully reproduced, but there is no effort on the part of the reporter.  They propagate proffered quotes included to help the public with interpretation or significance of the study. These articles, however, are not the result of critical analysis on the part of the news source, no attempt to place the report of the study into the context of current events, and no cross-reference to similar studies with similar or differing results.  To me, these outlets are primarily a valuable source of information that studies exist.  By…

The big vaccine-autism lie

“How is a self-contained world built? Well, you can take a major situation which has an obvious cause, and then relabel the situation with a new name and say the cause is unknown. Then you can claim you’re looking for the cause, and you can keep looking and stalling for 50 years.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

First of all, there is NO definitive evidence that autism is a specific condition with a single cause.

If you doubt this, look up the definition of autism in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, and try to find a definitive lab test that leads to a diagnosis of autism. There is no such test.

That means there is no confirmed cause of autism. And THAT means there is no proof autism is a single and specific condition.

Like other so-called developmental…

Misrepresenting science to show the desired outcome….

lifebiomedguru

OBJECTIVITY in science can be corrupted in the design, execution or interpretation of studies. In systematic reviews, and “official” government agency reports it can occur via similar mechanisms. A meta-analysis on the autism/vaccine hypothesis, for example, cited studies that had already been determined to be too flawed for inclusion in such considerations by the Institutes of Medicine, which rejected 17/22 studies. That IOM report itself cited 4 studies as valid that were in reality too low-powered to warrant inclusion. One study was so small that less than on person with ASD would be expected in one of the groups. The Polish study, with 96 vs 198 patients, found no association between vaccination with MMR and autism, but with such a small sample size, and it had too few patients enrolled to have sufficient statistical power. More on the issue of the reliance on low-powered studies to maintain a false…

“One Andrew J. Wakefield” is how Emily Willingham of Forbes magazine refers to Dr. Wakefield (he still holds his medical degree).

In a very weak stretch to grasp one to the last possible straw of tarnish… without really saying anything at all.. Emily Willingham attempts… and fails… to give Dr. Wakefield one more lash at the post to remind anyone who might DARE cite the retracted Lancet article in which he, and his co-authors (1) proposed that GI issues and autism might be somehow related, and (2) propose that autism might be related to vaccination in some people, while, at the same time, citing (and almost criticizing, yikes!) a new study that has validated the GI inflammation associated-with-autism observations in Dr. Wakefield’s PILOT STUDY.

Dr. Wakefield is no longer your, nor anyone else’s whipping boy, Emily.  The jig is up.

Chronic GI inflammation is caused by the same factors…

Fact-Checking Baylor College of Medicine on Autism

Vet everything. Really. If the facts don’t match your beliefs, then adjust your beliefs. Beliefs can change, facts can’t.

lifebiomedguru

BCM just published a blog article entitled “Breaking down myths and truths about autism“.  Here I fact-check the claim made by that article.

BCM- LABELED ‘Myth’: People can “get” autism after receiving childhood vaccines.

.

BCM CLAIM: “Studies involving hundreds of thousands of children have failed to show a link between vaccines and autism.”

FACT: “VACCINES” NOT STUDIED. First off, the last two words.  “Vaccines and Autism”.  None of the studies cited by the BCM blog article has ever been conducted that measured the risk of autism in vaccinated vs. unvaccinated children.  Not one.  Most looked at the contributed risk of a single vaccine.  Not all of the vaccines on the schedule have been tested for association with autism.

magicFACT: Some studies HAVE reported association between vaccines and autism.  BCM cherry-picked only studies that report no association, and that’s not science.

FACT: THE INDIVIDUAL…

Facebook censorship: the grotesque mainstream solution

by Jon Rappoport

April 11, 2018

The problem with Facebook started a long time ago. They used their money to promote their social media operations, and tons of users jumped on board, believing that conventional rules of free speech applied.

That was a mistake.

The mistake was on the level of believing the military-industrial complex is only interested in legitimate defense of the nation; or believing the pharmaceutical industry is only interested in alleviating existing illness with safe drugs.

Some lawyers and scholars are trying to “correct” Facebook. But beware: most of them are arguing that, since the Internet is a new platform, far beyond the ability of the Founding Fathers to have anticipated, we now have to change the meaning of the 1st Amendment, in order to make social media “more responsible” about the content they permit. In other words, Facebook should eliminate…
