Are vaccines causing more disease than they are curing?

Vaccine manufacture is a giant industry. So why are more and more people worried about vaccines, especially ones for kids? Alan Cantwell, MD, explores the issues.
We are told that vaccines help keep us safe from infectious diseases. Smallpox and polio epidemics have been wiped out by mass vaccine programs. People rush to get flu shots every fall, and kids are bombarded with a barrage of 22 required vaccinations before the age of six. Vaccine manufacture is a giant industry. So why are more and more people worried about vaccines, especially the ones for kids?
Barbara Loe Fisher, president of the National Vaccine Information Center, claims vaccines are responsible for the increasing numbers of children and adults who suffer from immune system and neurologic disorders, hyperactivity, learning disabilities, asthma, chronic fatigue syndrome, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and seizure disorders.
She calls for studies to monitor the long-term effects of mass vaccination; and she wants physicians to be absolutely sure these vaccines are safe and not harming people.
No one can deny the dangers of vaccines. The measles, mumps, rubella (German measles) and polio vaccines, all contain live but weakened viruses. Although health officials claim that polio has been wiped out in the U.S. since 1979, they often fail to mention that all recorded cases of polio since that time are actually caused by the polio vaccine.
Vaccine investigator Neil Z. Miller questions whether we still need the polio vaccine. Before mass vaccinations programs began fifty years ago, Miller insists we didn't have cancer in epidemic numbers, that autoimmune ailments were barely known, and childhood autism did not exist.
There is a long history of vaccine contamination problems. During World War II, a yellow fever vaccine was unknowingly contaminated with hepatitis virus.
As a result, more than 50,000 cases of serum hepatitis broke out among American troops injected with the vaccine. In the 1960s it was discovered that polio vaccines manufactured in monkey kidney cells between 1955 and 1963 were contaminated with a monkey virus (Simian Virus, number 40). Thus virus causes cancer in experimental animals, but health authorities insist it does not cause problems in humans.
However, some researchers are now connecting SV40-contaminated polio vaccines to an increasing number of rare cancers of the lung (mesothelioma) and bone marrow (multiple myeloma). Could SV40 be passed on from parents to their children? No one knows for sure.
Covert Vaccine Experiments
Using kids as guinea pigs in vaccine experiments is every parents' worst nightmare. Kaiser Permanente of Southern California and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) jointly conducted a covert measles vaccine experiment during 1989-1991.
Without proper parental disclosure, the Yugoslavian-made Edmonston-Zagreb measles vaccine was tested on 1,500 poor, primarily black and Latino, inner city children in Los Angeles.
Highly recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO), the experimental measles vaccine was previously injected into infants in Mexico, Haiti, and Africa. It was discontinued when it was discovered the children were dying in large numbers.
The vaccine caused long-term suppression of the children's immune system for six months up to three years. As a result, these children died from other diseases in greater numbers than children who had never received the vaccine.
The WHO pulled the vaccine off the market in 1992. Ironically, the E-Z measles vaccine tested by Kaiser was supposed to increase immunity in younger infants. Instead, the vaccine produced the opposite effect. One wonders how many secret vaccine experiments are conducted by health authorities that never come to the attention of the public.
With vaccine experiments performed in Africa and on black Americans, no wonder one out of every four African-Americans believes AIDS was developed as a genocide program by the U.S. government to exterminate the black population.
But, during the 1990s, vaccine experiments were also performed on millions of female Mexicans, Nicaraguans and Filipinos, who were duped into taking tetanus vaccines, some of which were laced with a female hormone that could cause miscarriage and sterilization.
Apparently the WHO has been developing and testing anti-fertility vaccines for over two decades. Consequently, the laced vaccine served as a covert contraceptive device. Not surprisingly, the WHO has denied all accusations as "completely false and without basis," and the major media have never reported on the controversy.
Newly approved vaccines may also pose serious risks. A vaccine against "rotavirus" infection (which causes most cases of childhood diarrhea) was pulled off the market in 1999. One year after the RotaShield vaccine was inoculated into over a million infants, it was found to increase the risk of bowel obstruction. Almost 100 cases of bowel obstruction were reported to the government, and twenty infants developed bowel obstructions within one or two weeks after receiving the vaccine.
Is There a Vaccine Contamination Connection to AIDS?
Most people assume vaccines are "sterile" and germ free. But sterilizing a vaccine can destroy the necessary immunizing protein that makes it work. Thus, contaminating viruses (like SV-40) or viral "particles" can sometime survive the vaccine process.
Animal viruses are also contained in fetal calf serum, a blood product commonly used as a laboratory nutrient to feed various tissue cell cultures. Could virus-contaminated vaccines lie at the root of AIDS?
A few researchers, including myself, believe HIV was "introduced" into gays during the experimental hepatitis B vaccine trails when thousands of homosexuals were injected in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York, during the years 1978-1981.
The hepatitis vaccine was developed in chimpanzees; and the experimental vaccine was made from the pooled blood serum of hepatitis-infected homosexuals. Details of these experiments and the ensuing aftermath of AIDS is contained in my books, AIDS and the Doctors of Death, and in Queer Blood: The Secret AIDS Genocide Plot.
The New Swine Flu Pandemic of 2009
The new swine flu virus was first detected in Mexico on April 23, 2009. The novel infectious agent was reported as a hybrid of pig, bird and human flu viruses, including genetic elements from European and Asian swine viruses. The official name of the virus is: Influenza A: subtype H1N1.
On April 29, Indonesian Health Minister Siti Fadilah Supari, accused Western governments of making and spreading viruses to boost pharmaceutical profits. “I’m not sure whether the virus was genetically engineered but it’s a possibility.”
Two weeks later, 75-year old Adrian Gibbs, an Australian evolutionary virologist with impeccable academic credentials, shocked the scientific world by suggesting the new strain of swine flu accidentally evolved in the laboratory in eggs used to grow viruses for vaccines. Gibbs came to this conclusion by analyzing the genetic blueprint of the virus. Not surprisingly, the WHO and the CDC were quick to deny this assertion.
The Baxter Flu Vaccine Lab "Accident" in February 2009
On February 6, 2009, a Czech laboratory worker conducting a flu experiment reported a fatal lab accident when all the ferrets died after being injected with "experimental virus material" composed of human seasonal H3N2 flu viruses. Ferrets are no supposed to die from exposure to human seasonal flu viruses.
The lethal biological product was manufactured by Baxter International in Austria and distributed to labs in Germany, Slovenia, and the Czech Republic.
The fatal lab accident led to an extensive investigation by health officials. Testing showed the "experimental virus material" was indeed a mix of human H3N2 seasonal flu viruses, but the product was also contaminated with unlabeled live "bird flu" H5N1 viruses. H5N1 is known as the human form of avian flu, one of the most deadly biological weapons on earth with a 60% kill rate. In short, such a product could start a pandemic!
Canadian Press reporter Helen Branswell noted: "People familiar with biosecurity rules are dismayed by evidence that human H3N2 and avian H5N1 viruses somehow co-mingled in the Orth-Donau facility. That is a dangerous practice that should not be allowed to happen, a number of experts insisted.
"Accidental release of a mixture of live H5N1 and H3N2 viruses could have resulted in dire consequences. While H5N1 doesn’t easily infect people, H3N2 viruses do. If someone exposed to a mixture of the two had been simultaneously infected with both strains, he or she could have served as an incubator for a hybrid virus able to transmit easily to and among people. That mixing process, called reassortment, is one of two ways pandemic viruses are created."
Fortunately, no lab workers became ill, but all were treated with the ant-viral drug Tamiflu.
At first, Baxter stonewalled questions by invoking “trade secrets.” After increased pressure Baxter claimed the preparations were sent by accident. The Baxter lab accident indicates that using animals to develop vaccines for humans is a double-edged sword. In the process, animals can also transfer dangerous laboratory viruses back to human beings.
On April 29, Baxter International announced it would collaborate with the WHO to develop a vaccine against swine flu. A spokesman said it could take about 12-16 weeks to provide the first doses once the manufacturing process.
As of this writing (September 2009), there are a total of 356,000 pandemic cases worldwide, with 3925 deaths. The three most infected countries are: United States (44,500 cases); Australia (36,000); and Mexico (23,500).
Vaccines and Public Paranoia
Is the fear of vaccines justified? Could vaccines contaminated with cancer-causing and immunosuppressive viruses unleash new plagues in the New Millennium? If so, the new plagues may be far worse than the diseases we eradicated by vaccine programs in the twentieth century.
