pharma fraud, quack science, the CDC and WHO — all exposed by Richard
Gale and Gary Null
article was published today by authors Richard Gale and Dr. Gary Null of
the Progressive Radio Network (http://www.progressiveradionetwork.com).
It may be the most shocking (and important) public health article published
in the last two years. If you read just one health article this entire month,
make it this one.
article is remarkable not just for its timeliness on the issue of mandatory
vaccinations and public health policy, but also for its damning evidence
that exposes the fraud and quackery of the vaccine industry (as well as
the corruption at the CDC and WHO).
read below, flu vaccines remain a mainstay modern medicine only because
they provide a reliable source of profits for the pharmaceutical industry
which now virtually dictates public health policy thanks to its powerful
lobbying resources. And the CDC, for its part, has now become little more
than the regulatory branch of Big Pharma, pushing vaccines on the entire
population even though the scientific evidence reveals quite clearly that
flu vaccines simply do not work. (Vitamin D actually works far better at
preventing flu infections, but the CDC won't recommend vitamin D to anyone.)
you're about to read below is absolutely shocking. If you're a reader of
NaturalNews, you probably already realized the vaccine industry was a sham,
but I bet you didn't know just how deep this rabbit hole really goes...
why I'm reprinting the entire article by Richard Gale and Dr. Gary Null

this article a serious read. It is one of the most important articles you'll
ever find on this topic. Dr. Gary Null, you may already know, is one of
the most brilliant researchers, thinkers and writers in the health freedom
field, and I've come to respect his work a great deal. I don't yet personally
know Richard Gale, but his words carry tremendous weight.
link to this story from your own web page, be sure to give proper credit
to the original authors (Richard Gale and Gary Null). The bold emphasis
in the article below is my own (I added it). I also added subheads for improved
organization of the article.
Votes in Favor of a Flu Vaccination Assault on Americans’ Health
by Richard Gale and Gary Null, the Progressive Radio Network
principle of democracy is freedom of choice. We can choose our political
party, our religion, and the food we eat, but this does not seem to be the
case when it comes to our medical choices and our freedoms to make them.
recent unanimous 11-0 vote by the members of the Centers for Disease Control’s
Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) favoring every American
over the age of six months receive the flu influenza vaccine is one more
attempt by our federal health officials to open up our bodies to the free
market capitalism of pharmaceutical coffers. It is another step to mandate
a vaccine across the nation, a policy that has many supporters in the pro-vaccine
vote raises an alarm about our federal government’s scientific integrity,
and calls into question its true allegiance and purpose: to protect the
health of American citizens or increase Big Pharma profits. If the recommendation
were ever enforced, the US would be the only nation in the world with mandatory
flu vaccination. However, what our investigations show and what differentiates
the US health agencies from the health ministries in other nations, is that
in the US federal health system Big Pharma money, lobbying and corporate
favors are what shape drug and vaccine policies and this is rampant throughout
vaccines fail in Japan
influenza vaccination has been tried before across a nation. During the
1980s, Japan had mandatory flu vaccination for school children. Two large
scale studies that enrolled children from four cities with vaccination rates
between 1 and 90 percent discovered no difference in the incidences of flu
infection. As a result, in 1987, Japanese health authorities ruled that
flu vaccination was ineffective and was no more than a serious financial
and legal liability if it was to continue. The mandatory policy was quickly
overturned. By 1989, the number of Japanese taking the flu vaccine dropped
to 20 percent. A follow up study at that time found that there was statistically
insignificant change in influenza infection rates compared to when the vaccine
we are hearing that for the forthcoming 2010-2011 flu season, the H1N1 flu
strain will be included in the seasonal flu vaccine. This will be a quadravalent
vaccine comprised of four strains including the H1N1. As of this month,
the World Health Organization (WHO) continues to evaluate the H1NI virus
at a 5 level pandemic and issues warnings to deaf ears now that people realize
the WHO’s word is disreputable. Nevertheless, we should still brace
ourselves for another year of old yarn, fear-mongering, media spin and more
overview of the past H1N1 pandemic boondoggle will help us to understand
the addiction of denial permeating the ranks of the CDC’s advisory
committee. It presents a picture of a delusional bubble, unrelated to medical
facts, that the CDC has found comfort to float within. The simple fact remains
that the CDC is disconnected from anything resembling legitimate science
thereby making their recent decision ludicrous and criminally irresponsible.
CDC’s predictions of particular strains during past flu seasons has
never been especially accurate. In fact, often it has been extraordinarily
dismal. The previous swine flu prediction in 1976 resulted in only one swine
flu death but hundreds of people suffering permanent disabilities, including
death, from the vaccine. For the 1992-1993 flu season, the prediction made
for the virus used in the vaccine was off by 84 percent. For the 1994-1995
season, it was off by 43 percent for the primary strain targeted and off
87 percent and 76 percent for the other two strains. The Laboratory Center
for Disease Control’s study comparing vaccine strains with the strains
appearing during the 1997-1998 season found the match off by 84 percent.
One would achieve a greater accuracy rate by simply flipping a coin.
CDC's scare tactics
article published in the prestigious British Medical Journal in 2005, “Are
US Flu Death Figures More PR Than Science” is apropos for addressing
the wildly inflated figures by the WHO and CDC to present their case for
mass vaccination measures. The article begins, “US data on influenza
deaths are a mess.” The study reviews the CDC’s own statistical
data and finds numerous inconsistencies and incompatibilities between “official
estimates and national vital statistics data.” Although the government’s
predictions never came close to the “dire outcomes” stated by
our health officials, the CDC’s own communication strategy was marked
by high levels of fear.
US government’s assessment of the past H1N1 scare is another example
of flawed science and incompetence. In last August’s issue of USA
Today, the White House’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology,
which receives its recommendations from the CDC, warned us that the H1N1
would kill between 30-90,000 American citizens. At the same time, the CDC
was predicting 2 million people would be infected and as high as 40 percent
of the entire population. The WHO, which sleeps in the same bed with the
CDC in their shared complexes in Atlanta, was screaming figures of 7.5 million
deaths worldwide. Consequently, the FDA fast-tracked swine flu vaccines
manufactured by 5 different drug makers, none which met reliable standards
of viable clinical testing and data to determine their efficacy and safety.
pregnant women, young children and the elderly were primary targets -- those
also most susceptible to serious vaccine adverse reactions. Over
$1.6 billion tax dollars went to Big Pharma on orders of 229 million doses,
of which only 90 million were actually administered and the remaining 71
million left to decompose on shelves or dump off on poorer nations
out of the graciousness of the American philanthropic spirit.
as we witnessed in 2009 and the early months of 2010, people woke up to
the false alarm of a swine flu pandemic. Often intuition is better suited
to sniff out a hoax and scandal than the pseudo-science our federal health
officials give obeisance to behind closed door conference rooms. And in
the case of the so-called H1N1 pandemic, intuition proved correct. Our health
agencies’ warnings and numbers propagandized over mainstream media
simply did not add up and have been consistently found to be contrary to
more medically reliable and unbiased facts generated by independent sources
without ties to the private vaccine manufacturers.
the CDC, the FDA and the US Department of Health and Human Services post
figures, it is a prudent rule of thumb to be suspicious and investigate
their accuracy. The fact of the matter is that the CDC is completely clueless
about this past season’s flu infection rate and the number of deaths
due to the H1N1 strain. Let us explain why.
testing was ever conducted
following the WHO’s decision in May 2009 to cease laboratory testing
of samples to determine the actual biological cause of infectious cases
with influenza-like symptoms, the US followed suit. Therefore, no matter
what they tell you, no matter what Dr. Gupta and other tools of the media
and establishment have to say, no proper testing was performed. Only PCR
technology can determine the actual subset of a Type A flu strain, such
as H1N1. But PCR diagnosis was not routinely performed in order to monitor
and track rates and the spread of infection. By its own admission, a CDC
report found that rapid influenza kits used in hospitals and clinics were
wrong as much as nine out of ten times, and on average between 40-69 percent.
The CDC determined that the instant tests are “not highly worthwhile
for diagnosing H1N1 infections.”
would any organization responsible for the tracking of an infectious disease
believed to be a global health threat, potentially threatening the lives
of millions of people, make such a decision to not carefully monitor flu
infections is beyond comprehension, unless it knowingly determined, with
malice of forethought, that the H1N1 strain was mild and not a national
danger. And many independent experts in infectious diseases had been stating
this throughout the season but our health agencies preferred to ignore their
it is the reported death rates due to H1N1 infection that seriously call
the CDC’s integrity into question. According to the CDC reports, anywhere
between 8,870 and 18,300 Americans died from swine flu. For the sake of
simplicity, the health feds conveniently circulate the figure of 12,000
in the UK were equally off the mark. The British Ministry of Health was
expecting 65,000 deaths, but reported only 500 towards the season’s
end. British citizens, however, were better informed of the scandalous hoax
and of the 110 million vaccine doses purchased, under contracts amounting
to over $864 million to the drug makers (not including national preparatory
measures bringing the total to over $1 billion for a small population),
only 6 million Brits, approximately 10 percent, were vaccinated.
figures does the World Health Organization report for the number of worldwide
swine flu deaths? 18,036. That is correct, not millions. That is only 5
percent of the global figure for deaths associated with the regular seasonal
flu. I don’t need an advanced degree to notice a grave discrepancy
here, unless we are to believe that the H1N1 virus was on autopilot to target
victims with American birth certificates or citizenship. But the reasons
for the CDC’s erroneous numbers are quite easy to understand.
CDC's flawed statistics
as mentioned, the CDC did not monitor the swine flu with any precision and
accuracy. Our officials don’t have, and never had, the data to make
any accurate determination.
the CDC does not distinguish between deaths caused by an influenza virus
and deaths due to pneumonia. The two are lumped together in their mortality
statistics and pneumonia-related deaths are reported as having an initial
influenza cause. For example, if we take the combined figure of flu and
pneumonia deaths for the flu period of 2001, and spin the figures, we are
left believing that 62,034 people died from influenza. The actual figures
are 61,777 died from pneumonia and only 257 from flu.
more amazing, in those 257 cases, only 18 were scientifically identified
as positive for the flu virus. These are the CDC’s own figures. But
does the New York Times, Boston Globe, Washington Post and all the others
report this? No. Do any of the puppets that mumble on television, with access
to official sources and data, actually do their homework? No.
study conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics for the flu
periods between 1979 and 2002 reveals that the actual range of annual flu
deaths were between 257 and 3006, for an average of 1,348 per year. This
is a far cry from the 36,000 annual flu deaths still found on the CDC’s
website and vomited by the major media.
here is the catch. If we apply the same criteria to determine the actual
number of swine flu related deaths in 2009-2010, serious vaccine adverse
effects, besides the hundreds of reported miscarriages, would far outweigh
deaths and injury due to the virus.
there are over 150 different viruses during any given flu season that can
cause flu-like symptoms, such as adenovirus, parainfluenza, bocavirus, etc.
Very few of these are ever tested. For example, in Canada where actual infection
rates are more carefully monitored, during the 2004-2005 flu season, the
Canada Communicable Disease Report showed that of the 68,849 laboratory
tests performed for influenza, only 14.9% tested positive for a flu virus.
The remaining 85.1% specimens were a result of other pathogens impervious
to flu vaccines. For the following 2005-2006 season, Health Canada received
68,439 tests for influenza like infections. Of these, only 6,580, or 10.4%
confirmed positive for influenza. The rest, 89.6%, were other pathogens.
So no vaccine would have benefitted or protected those almost 90 percent
US, however, the CDC relies upon an esoteric witch’s brew of figures
based upon various mathematical algorithms and speculative projections with
no sound basis in reality. On one CDC site we find evidence of their flawed
methodology: “Statistical modeling was used to estimate how many flu-related
deaths occurred among people whose underlying cause of death on their death
certificate was listed as a respiratory and circulatory disease.”
This is clearly an indication of policy turned dogmatic with utterly disregard
for sound scientific evidence. It is all business as usual, negligent disregard
for scientific reason, and full speed ahead.
while the brilliant minds in the CDC decide to expose all Americans to the
adverse risks of influenza vaccination -- Guillain-Barre Syndrome, schizophrenia,
neurological disorders, miscarriages, polyneuritis, encephalitis, multiple
sclerosis, intense headaches suggestive or meningeal or brain irritation,
aphasia (loss of speech), bronchopneumonia, sexual impotence, angor pectoris,
anaphylactic reactions and death -- we should not lose sight of what
is unfolding across the great pond in the European Union’s investigations
into the CDC’s favorite bed partner -- the WHO, an utterly corrupt
organization at every level.
at the WHO
reports recently published have indicted the WHO for serious malfeasance
and conflict in interests behind the fabrication and propagation of the
2009-2010 H1N1 swine flu pandemic and has been called a “momentous
error” in global health oversight. The people at the WHO had as much
accuracy in their predictions as the Bush administration did with WMDs in
British Medical Journal printed a research paper by its Features Editor,
Deborah Cohen, and Philip Carter from the Bureau of Investigative Journalism
in London, charging the largest global health organization with exaggerating
the H1N1 flu and being steered in their decisions and fraudulent fear campaign
by the pharmaceutical industrial complex. According to the authors, “credibility
of the WHO and the trust in the global public health system” has been
devastating preliminary report released by the Health Committee of the Parliamentary
Assembly of the Council of Europe (CE) found gross negligence and lack of
transparency in the WHO’s handling of the swine flu scare. Throughout
the WHO’s key advisory committees, particularly a secretive group
known as the “emergency committee”, which steered the WHO’s
assessment and predictions of the spread of H1N1 flu virus and advised them
to announce a level 6 pandemic, were scientists entrenched in the morass
of private vaccine and drug interests, particularly GlaxoSmithKline (H1N1
vaccine and Relenza anti-viral drug maker) and Tamiflu maker Roche AG.
worse, the WHO never publicly disclosed widespread conflict of interests.
Paul Flynn, the rapporteur for the CE’s report stated, “the
tentacles of drug company influence are in all levels of the decision-making
process,” and “they vastly over-rated the danger on bad science.”
Following a lengthy investigation, a preliminary report, which still awaits
a final version next month, states the result of the WHO’s negligence
in proper oversight resulted in the “waste of large sums of public
money and unjustified scares and fears about the health risks faced by the
WHO continues to withhold the names of the 16 members sitting on its secret
“emergency committee.” However, this week, two of the members
resigned, notably Dr. John MacKenzie from Curtin University in Australia,
who was the WHO advisor who first urged the organization to call a pandemic
and is well known to be entangled in financial interests and investments
with the pharmaceutical cartel.
the CDC has weathered the WHO controversy in Europe unscathed. A fundamental
oversight in the CE’s investigation and hearings has been solely targeting
the WHO. It ignores the role of government health agencies’ complicity
in promulgating the H1N1 hoax and the flushing away of billions of dollars
into the drug industry, especially during an economic downturn and recession.
As we witness the WHO’s indifference and denial of wrongdoing crumble,
the question remains over whether or not the CDC was complicit in the propagandizing
of the astronomically expensive H1N1 hoax.
the vaccine industry doesn’t give a damn about the investigations.
Their vaccines, anti-viral drugs, and oligarchic rule over the medical caste
system make them immune to independent international scrutiny. And we can
be assured none of the lap dogs at the New York Times, MSNBC and other major
media would expose their crimes. In the shadow of this medical charade,
the drug makers are laughing their way to the banks. No Big Pharma executive
is sitting before investigative committees to give an accounting of corporations’
role in the pandemic debacle. Instead, after scoring over $6 billion (Associated
Press, May 19, 2010) it is again business as usual and another flu season
ahead to further increase revenues.
corruption at every level
to the WHO, the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Vaccination and Practice,
which voted in favor of a flu vaccine-for-all policy, is equally stacked
with individuals entrenched in financial ties with the vaccine and drug
makers. The Committee’s Chair, Dr. Carol Baker from Baylor University,
has consistently received research and educational grants and private donations
from Big Pharma. She is also on the Board of Directors of the National Foundation
of Infectious Diseases, a consulting body of scientists frequently wined
and dined and provided perks by the pharmaceutical industrial complex.
Baylor University committee member, Dr. Wendy Keitel, received clinical
trial support from Novartis, the maker of the H1N1 vaccine most widely distributed
in the US. Dr. Janet Englund at the Children’s University Medical
Group in Seattle received financial support for clinical trials favoring
vaccines made by Medimmune (the nasal flu vaccine), Novartis, and Sanofi
Pasteur. Dr. Cody Meissner received Big Pharma support through Tufts University
for his supporting clinical trials for Medimmune’s RSV vaccine and
for participation in Wyeth’s streptococcus vaccine for children, Prevnar.
this into greater perspective, since the FDA relies on industry-funded clinical
trials and subsequent data to approve vaccines and drugs, there also appeared
in the news this month a critical finding from the German Institute for
Quality and Efficacy in Health Care, published in the peer-reviewed journal
Trials. The study investigated 90 approved drugs in the US (and let us make
no mistake, vaccines are drugs! In fact, the flu vaccine is listed as a
Category C drug; which means there are no adequate safety studies to determine
whether flu vaccination adversely affects pregnant mothers and their fetuses.)
and discovered that 60 percent of the 900 papers were unpublished and some
were concealed from the federal regulatory agencies. Forty to sixty percent
omitted clinical details or changed their final analysis. Among the pharmaceutical
industry studies alone, 94 percent were unpublished, and 86 percent of the
university studies sponsored by drug makers remained unpublished.
does this tell us? If they were positive results, the drug companies would
without hesitation publish their findings; but if the clinical studies’
results contradict their expectations negatively, thereby delaying and preventing
regulatory approval and licensure of a product, then there is no incentive
for their release. And they are under no regulatory obligation to publish
or produce them. Hence the American public is denied approximately 90 percent
of the actual clinical data performed on any given drug or vaccine.
science, useless vaccines and wasted money
German study concludes that drug makers intentionally “conceal unfavorable
results or results that do not fulfill one’s expectations.”
Therefore, the vaccine and drug makers are permitted to conduct their nefarious,
quack science behind closed doors with full participation and cooperation
from the WHO, CDC and FDA. Of course, the CDC and FDA condone this behavior
because they are completely subservient to the power and wealth of the pharmaceutical
recent CDC vote continues a tradition of denial over independent studies
and reports warning of the over-exaggerated alarm and the dangers of pushing
forward with an H1N1 vaccine that was not given sufficient time to prove
its safety and efficacy. They even deny their own voices.
Anthony Morris is a distinguished virologist and a former Chief Vaccine
Office at the FDA. His view about influenza vaccines summarizes their efficacy
well. In Morris’s opinion there is no evidence that any influenza
vaccine thus far developed is effective in preventing or mitigating any
attack of influenza,’ Dr. Morris states, as a matter of record, “The
producers of these vaccines know they are worthless, but they go on selling
Vaccination Risk Awareness Network (VRAN) website is a community of physicians,
researchers and vaccine researchers and journalists reporting on vaccines’
flawed promises and pseudo-science. Among all vaccines, the flu vaccine
is presented with “The Most Useless Vaccine Of-All-Time Award.”
of the most damning evidence about the efficacy of flu vaccines was reported
in two studies performed by Dr. Tom Jefferson, head of the Vaccine Field
Group at the prestigious independent Cochrane Database Group, published
in The Lancet and the prestigious Cochrane Database Systems Review. The
first study was a systematic review of the effects of influenza vaccines
in healthy children. The other was a review of all the available published
and unpublished safety evidence available regarding flu vaccines.
authors of the study had also contacted the lead scientists or research
groups for all the efficacy and safety trial studies under their review
in order to gain access to additional unpublished trial studies the corporations
may possess. The conclusions are shocking. The only safety study performed
with an inactivated flu vaccine was conducted in 1976. Thirty-four years
ago! And that single study enrolled only 35 children aged 12-28 months.
Every other subsequent inactivated flu vaccine study enrolled children 3
years or older.
Jefferson told Reuters, “Immunization of very young children is not
lent support by our findings. We recorded no convincing evidence that vaccines
can reduce mortality, [hospital] admissions, serious complications and community
transmission of influenza. In young children below the age of 2, we could
find no evidence that the vaccine was different from a placebo.”
With respect to adults, in 64 studies involving 66,000 adults, Jefferson
noted, “Vaccination of healthy adults only reduced risk of influenza
by 6 percent and reduced the number of missed work days by less than one
day. There was no change in the number of hospitalizations compared to the
in another interview for the German magazine Der Spiegel on July 21, 2009,
Jefferson seems to conclude his analysis of the H1N1 scare, “Sometimes
you get the feeling that there is a whole industry almost waiting for a
pandemic to occur. The WHO and public health officials, virologists and
the pharmaceutical companies. They’ve built this machine around the
impending pandemic. And there’s a lot of money involved, and influence,
and careers, and entire institutions! And all it took was one of these viruses
to mutate to start the machine grinding.”
there is no rationale for submitting the American population to a vaccine
with higher risks of adverse effects than its record of efficacy in preventing
flu infection. If the CDC’s vote withstands and were to ever become
the law in the land, we will witness one of the largest crimes ever inflicted
upon the American public, solely for corporate gain. Aside from rampant
adverse effects in children, many that will not appear until their later
years due to the number of toxins contained in flu vaccines, there will
also be thousands of women having miscarriages. We will have entered a new
medical twilight zone, where true science, responsible medical practice,
and reliable public health become virtually nonexistent.
