When the Australian Government announced its free whooping-cough (pertussis) vaccine for every pregnant woman in the country I was shocked. I had not thought that pregnant women would be targeted for vaccination. But little did I know there were more to come. Continue reading

The introduction of the infant hepatitis B vaccination program began in the state of Victoria on 1 May 2000.
The decision to vaccinate newborns was required as a condition of funding to public hospitals in the state of Victoria under the policy and funding guidelines, issued by the Acute Health Division of the Department of Human Services.
I could not believe this could happen and note that this unethical practice has been in place for 18 years with no sign of it ending. The addition of the hepatitis B vaccine to the infant vaccination schedule meant infants were and still are given four doses of the vaccine: one shortly after birth, and subsequent doses at 2, 4, and 6 months.
When the news broke about this new vaccine for infants I expected some dissent but of course there was no mainstream media analysis and so who really knew of the latest development to over vaccinate our children. At the time I presented a women’s health program on community radio 3CR where I provided some analysis of the issue followed by writing an article that was published in Birth Matters: The Journal of the Maternity Coalition Inc where I expressed my displeasure providing additional information such as the clear directive issued that all health professionals have a legal duty to implement this National Health and Medical Research Councils (NHMRC) policy seen as a major step towards the reduction of acute hepatitis B infection.
Universal hepatitis B immunisation
The statement titled Universal hepatitis B immunisation appeared in NEXUS (Vol 6 Issue 2, November 2000), a publication of the Nurses Board of Victoria. It stated:
In a follow up edition of Birth Matters, the midwives had their say on the hepatitis B addition to the infant vaccination schedule.
MIPP midwives (Midwives in Private Practice) are particularly concerned about the administration of the first dose, for babies who are not in contact with carriers of the disease. The concerns are around informed consent, possible side effects, and storage of the vaccine. MIPP members report that they have informed their clients about the availability of the vaccine, and recommend that those parents who wish their child to have the ‘birth’ dose arrange to have it given at a hospital or by a general practitioner. It is important to note that babies who do not receive the ‘birth dose’ but receive the three subsequent doses will be fully immunised.
The birth dose?
That is a very interesting point: Why are children given four doses when three doses is what is needed for so-called ‘immunisation’. Why are babies given the vaccine at birth? Is this because there is a ‘captive audience’ so to speak. The mums and babies are hospitalised so let’s get them used to having their baby injected with vaccines on the schedule starting with hepatitis B.
The virus infection is generally caused by either unprotected sexual contact or contact with infected blood.
It is apparent that the vast majority of infants born in Australia today would have absolutely no risky behaviours which would leave them susceptible to Hepatitis B infections.
Why was hepatitis B put on the vaccination schedule?
According to the National Vaccine Information Center
The primary reason that the CDC recommended hepatitis B vaccination for all newborns in the United States in 1991 is because public health officials and doctors could not persuade adults in high risk groups (primarily IV drug users and persons with multiple sexual partners) to get the vaccine.
There is no need to give this vaccine to children except maybe if they are at risk due to an infected mother or other person so infected. Vaccines are not harmless as is evident by examining their contents.
Hepatitis B surface antigen recombinant (yeast) vaccine.
The infant dose is (0.5 ml) containing:
Hepatitis B surface antigen. Adsorbed on 250 micrograms of aluminium hydroxide.
Produced in yeast cells (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) by recombinant DNA technology
The final vaccines also contain sodium phosphate – dibasic dihydrate, sodium phosphate – monobasic dihydrate, sodium chloride, and water for injection and traces of polysorbate 20.
Not something you really want to have injected into your newborn child, is it?
An independent review of the VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System – the national database maintained in the US to track and study vaccine reactions) data; publications by governmental, pro-vaccine, and anti-vaccine groups; and a sample of the medical literature leads to the following conclusions:
For most children, the risk of a serious vaccine reaction may be 100 times greater than the risk of hepatitis B.
Overall, the incidence of hepatitis B in the U.S. is currently about 4 per 100,000 and even less for a young child.
In Australia the risk is even lower where:
The overall notification rate of newly acquired hepatitis B decreased from 1.2 per 100,000 in 2009 to 0.7 per 100,000 in 2013.
Adverse events from the vaccine
There are 25,000 reports related to hepatitis B vaccine according to Vaers about one-third of which were serious enough to lead to an emergency room visit, hospitalization, or death. It is often assumed that only 10% of reactions are reported. So the real damage is not known.
A paper published in Neurology 2009 by Mikaeloff Y, Caridade G, et al called Hepatitis B vaccine and the risk of CNS inflammatory demyelination in childhood stated:
The Engerix B (hepatitis B) vaccine appears to increase this risk particularly for confirmed multiple sclerosis in the longer term
They reported that children with a confirmed diagnosis of multiple sclerosis were significantly more likely to have received the Engerix brand of vaccine.
Time for action
Recently it was suggested to me by a fellow critic of this particular vaccine that surely the hepatitis B given at birth is the most unnecessary and unethical and if there was any vaccine that we could use as an example of the burdensome, ever increasing schedule and the damage such vaccines are doing to young lives then this is the one.
We must educate young parents that once their child is born he/she will be given a hepatitis B shot. We need to forewarn them that this vaccine comes with real risks.
Remember we are not ‘pro-choice’ we are ‘anti-vaccine’ – Dr Heather Wolfson
Such a powerful video and an amazing couple who are anti-vaccine and proud of it.
One Doctor’s Surprising Answer to the Epidemic of Autoimmunity and Chronic Disease
Thomas Cowan, MD, argues for a direct causal relationship to a corresponding increase in the number of vaccines American children typically receive―approximately 70 vaccine doses by age eighteen. The goal of these vaccines is precisely what we’re now seeing in such abundance among our chronically ill children: the provocation of immune response.
Thomas Cowan’s latest book is one I can’t wait to read. I want to understand all about autoimmunity and how our increasing insane vaccine schedule is implicated.
Cowan begins his book with a description of how when he was growing up he never heard of children with chronic illness or of children who took prescription medicines.
Many of us had horrible diets, yet chronic disease among children was relatively unknown. No one had ever heard of autism, let alone a family member with autism.
I have to agree with his childhood recollections. Children with cancer or an autoimmune disease was unheard of in 1950s Australia.
In his work as a medical practitioner Thomas Cowan has had the experience of treating vaccinated children, partially vaccinated children and the unvaccinated. He writes that he rarely saw an unvaccinated child with any chronic illness however the same could not be said for those who were vaccinated many of whom were suffering from asthma, eczema, seizures and gut problems. This state of affairs he believes:
corresponded with the introduction in the late 1980s to the mid 1990s of certain adjuvants and excipients, as well as the introduction of ever more vaccines.
During his practice he has treated many children who had childhood infectious diseases such as whooping cough, chicken pox, rubella, mumps and measles. These children recovered well and did not develop complications.
1 in 2.5 children have an allergy
1 in 6 children has a developmental disability
1 in 9 children has attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder ADHD
1 in 11 children has asthma
1 in 13 children has severe food allergies
1 in 36 children has autism
He calls it ‘a national emergency’.
How did we get to such a state where we have so many sick children?
Cowan writes that the cause is environmental requiring us to do something about it. The problem as he sees it stems from the huge drop in infectious disease which ‘train the immune system’.
In writing Vaccines, Autoimmunity and the Changing Nature of Childhood Illness Cowan wanted to explain the nature of disease.
when we get sick there is a very certain sequence of events that happens: We are fine, then we get a fever, or we get hot then we get snot, and then we get better
In an interview with Dr Joseph Mercola he explains that he often wondered why disease follows this progression. His curiosity led to his researching the nature of fever along with the working of the cell and why our bodies follows this sequence of events in relation to disease.
Once you realise the wonder of this sequence of the events you can understand what happens when something is done to interfere with nature which Cowan describes as ‘thwarting of the sequence’. This is what happens in the context of vaccines leading to chronic disease. Vaccines cause a distortion in the immune response and increases the risk of cancer.
What happens inside the body of a child who gets a new viral disease.
When a new virus enters the body it distorts the cells whereupon the body begins its attack and produces a cell mediated immune response. This system consists of white blood cells which attack the infected cells, chewing them up and spitting them out – this is ‘snot’. This process takes about 5-10 days and over this time we consider the person affected ‘sick’ and all the while the virus has promoted a cell mediated response which clears the body of the virus and dead cells and rejuvenates the cells.
The humoral system which responds by making antibodies to the virus is also activated taking place after the cell mediated response. If the child meets a particular virus again then he/she will not get sick. This production of antibodies takes place around 6-8 weeks after the infection. ‘It is almost a 100% fool proof system’, says Cowan.
These are the two parts of our immune system.
When we vaccinate there is no cell mediated immune response. Vaccines provoke an antibody reaction but because there is no cell mediated response the immunity wears off and boosters are required. Adjuvants such as aluminium are required to stimulate this antibody reaction.
Such as Graves’ disease, inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, and systemic lupus erythematosus.
these diseases are characterised by an excessive antibody reaction
In autoimmunity there is non specific activation of the humoral immune system caused by the adjuvants such as aluminium. Vaccines stimulate humoral antibodies without a prior cell-mediated response.
There has never been until about the 1940s a situation where you have the stimulation of one without the other. So that’s what happens with vaccines, the whole point of a vaccine is to stimulate the humoral immunity, the humoral antibodies without a prior cell-mediated response.
It is not enough to just put the antigen in a vaccine along with saline. To make the vaccine stimulate humoral immunity, that is to produce antibodies, adjuvants such as aluminium or other irritants such as formaldehyde and mercury are necessary for the immune system to react. These are neurotoxins and should have no place in the human body.
The diseases that are characterized by suppressed cell-mediated immunity and heightened humoral immunity, you’re talking things like asthma, allergies, eczema and autoimmune diseases including Crohn’s, colitis, MS [multiple sclerosis], Sjogren’s syndrome, Hashimoto’s, etcetera. All of these are characterized by increased antibody production – that is what we mean by an autoimmune
Cowan states that the the fastest growing type of diseases are autoimmune diseases. Autoimmune diseases are soaring globally and together affect as many as one in five Americans today. Thomas Cowan’s Vaccines, Autoimmunity and the Changing Nature of Childhood Illness explains how our wonderful immune system has been ravaged by vaccines and includes chapters on treatment and diet protocols for autoimmune disease.
A must-read book on vaccines and autoimmunity and a history lesson on natural immunity that we all need to read and share.
One of the very severe conditions occurring in young teenagers following their human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccination is POTS or postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome.
On any given day they may experience the following symptoms:
- Orthostatic Intolerance (lightheadedness, dizziness)
- Chest pain
- Gastrointestinal cramps
- Inability to focus and concentrate for long periods
- Inability to read due to blurred vision
- Difficulty with recall
- Extreme fatigue
- Exercise Intolerance
- Appetite Disturbance
Because of the effect on blood pressure, people who suffer from POTS may not be able to stay seated for long intervals or stand for a long period of time, as this will affect their circulation. They will not be able to maintain that posture without feeling dizzy, lightheaded, and may even faint.
POTS is a form of dysautonomia
Dysautonomia refers to a disorder of the autonomic nervous system (ANS)–the main bodily system that controls organ function and involuntary actions of the body.
During her 12 year-old health check Nina was given her first shot of the quadrivalent HPV vaccine Gardasil. Two months later Nina’s hair began to fall out and shortly after began to complain of flu-like symptoms. Her episodes of fatigue and nausea became more regular and as her very concerned mother recalled:
She was becoming ill at all times of the day. She would sleep on the bathroom floor hoping not to vomit one more time. I made repeated visits to the pediatrician’s office and pleaded with them to help our child. Thoughts were running through my head as to why she became ill so suddenly. Then I remembered my mother’s intuition moment and realized our world began to change after the Gardasil vaccine. The pediatrician was in agreement that we would not proceed with the second dose of the vaccine due to Nina’s illness.
Nina was eventually diagnosed with dysautonomia by Dr. Hassan Abdallah at The Children’s Heart Institute in Reston, Virginia.
Nina’s experience post Gardasil vaccination is not unusual
Lucija Tomljenovic et al studied a 14-year-old previously healthy girl who presented with flu-like symptoms, sore throat, low-grade fever, fatigue, swollen glands, and intense headaches in February 2009, approximately 2 months after her second quadrivalent HPV vaccine injection. They report that the 14-year-old suffered such debilitating symptoms such as
persistent headaches, dizziness, recurrent syncope, poor motor coordination, weakness, fatigue, myalgias, numbness, tachycardia, dyspnea, visual disturbances, phonophobia, cognitive impairment, insomnia, and gastrointestinal disturbances.
The researchers state that this case clearly fulfilled the criteria for POTS/CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome) secondary to the quadrivalent HPV vaccine booster injection and that this is the seventh case of POTS associated with the qHPV vaccine Gardasil reported in the literature.
They also report that the highest number of both POTS- and CFS-related symptom reports was associated with HPV vaccines when compared with 2 other vaccines (Menactra and Varivax).
Dr Bill Anderson treats people with dysautonomia. He states that it is common to find this condition in those patients who became injured after HPV vaccines. He explains that any significant brain injury can affect our vital autonomic nervous system.
Many of the girls and boys who have become ill after Gardasil have clearly suffered brain injuries. This was described in a 2012 research article Death after Quadrivalent Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccination: Causal or Coincidental by Lucija Tomljenovic and Christopher Shaw.
The researchers examined brain tissue from two women who tragically died after vaccination with Gardasil. Their tests revealed an autoimmune vasculitis (inflammation of blood vessels) brought on by the cross-reactive HPV-16L1 antibodies binding to the wall of blood vessels. The researchers claim that their finding of HPV-16L1 particles in cerebral blood vessels and adhering to the walls of these vessels clearly shows that “vaccine derived immune complexes are capable of penetrating the blood brain barrier”.
Dysautonomia is an imbalance between the sympathetic nervous system and the parasympathetic nervous system
The Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) controls heart rate, blood pressure, temperature, digestion, salivation, perspiration, pupil dilation/constriction, and other functions. The ANS consists of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. Dysautonomia is an imbalance between the sympathetic nervous system and the parasympathetic nervous system.
This condition is serious and its connection with Gardasil is acknowledged by Bill Anderson. He states that Gardasil injured girls often end up with POTS and its associated symptoms caused by the increase in sympathetic drive which results in increased heart rate, lowered blood pressure and collapse, and inability to digest food.
This research into POTS and dysautonomia is important and adds to our understanding of the pathophysiology at play in the increasing numbers of sick girls and boys after Gardasil. Many of the these very ill teenagers are told they are mentally ill – ‘that it is all in their head’. They are frequently told to ‘just get on with it’. But without proper diagnosis they cannot ‘get on with it’ and even then treatment is difficult, costly and long-term.
The HPV vaccines, Gardasil, Gardasil 9 and Cervarix are dangerous vaccines and must be taken off the market. There is no proof that HPV causes cervical cancer.
Gardasil was fast-tracked though the U.S FDA, the food and drug administration, a process usually reserved for a drug or treatment for which there was no treatment available. Gardasil did not meet this criteria. There was no epidemic of cervical cancer and the Pap smear programs were in place and able to pick up abnormal smears.
In the interests of this generation of teenagers about to be vaccinated with these fast-tracked HPV vaccines we need to bring back some commonsense. For that I commend the work of Professor Peter Duesberg and the findings presented in a paper published in Molecular Cytogenetics (2013) of which Peter Duesberg is one of six authors which found that the changes seen in cervical cells are caused by exposure to carcinogens such as cigarette smoke. According to the authors, the pieces of inactive HPV DNA that can be found in cervical cancers are from infections or warts that occurred 20-50 years before the cancer.

Even though the award-winning journalist and documentary filmmaker Joan Shenton was refused permission to enter Australia this week she will be attending all 7 screenings of her documentary Sacrificial Virgins via Skype. Joan Shenton made the following statement in regard to her visa denial:
I’m very disappointed not to be able to meet in person the parents across Eastern Australia who want to know more about the risks and supposed benefits of HPV vaccinations, as well as the families who’ll be there to share stories of their loved one’s death or permanent disability. But I look forward to the screenings of Sacrificial Virgins and to having the same conversations over the air.
Sacrificial Virgins a documentary film trilogy – which investigates widespread global concerns over the safety of HPV vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix has won 2 awards for investigative journalism: The prestigious Best of the Festival award and the Watchdog Spirit Award at the Watchdog Film Festival, held in Brisbane, Australia.
Sacrificial Virgins probes the controversies surrounding Gardasil HPV vaccination programs – associated with many cases of severe neurological damage and also deaths in girls and young women – and presents new scientific evidence that questions these programs’ ability even to deliver the cervical cancer prevention that is the chief rationale for their existence. A very high proportion of 12-13 year old girls and boys in Australia are routinely administered Gardasil free of charge in school as part of the National Immunisation Program (NIP).
Joan Shenton should not have had her visa delayed which has resulted in her not appearing in person. But she will be there via Skype along with International experts such as Dr Christopher Exley who is one of the world’s experts on aluminium.
Professor Exley has been researching the subject for 30 years and says that he is not ‘anti aluminium’ but that it has never been demonstrated to be safe. Exley speaks about the history of the metal and explains that although it is abundant in the earth’s crust we have only been using it for 130 years. It was called ‘the metal of the future’ and formed the basis of much of our cookware in the 20th century. In relation to aluminium in vaccines, Exley asks: ‘How many experts did they consult before using the adjuvant?’ How would they know it was safe. He wonders how they could know the answer to this when he as an expert doesn’t even know.
Shockingly the aluminium adjuvant in these vaccines does not require clinical approval. It is the vaccine itself that is subject to an approval process.
Gardasil contains 225 mcgs of aluminium per shot and Gardasil 9 has 500 mcgs per dose. It is vital that we are able to speak about HPV vaccines and the damage with at least 80,000 adverse events following their administration.
Aluminium causes the body to turn against itself. This is what we are seeing in many of the girls who have had their lives severely affected after their Gardasil shots. One of the severe adverse events is premature ovarian failure in young teenage girls. POF occurs due to the destruction by aluminium of the maturation process of the eggs in the ovaries. Shockingly this condition is underreported at the present time because many girls are on the contraceptive pill but once they stop the damage will be obvious. This is very serious, more infertility and loads of heartache to follow.
Other experts include Professor Peter Duesberg from Berkeley University who brings some much needed sanity to the whole HPV vaccine debate when he states:
The HPV found in tumour cells is a fossil, a fragment left over from a former infection…It does nothing.
Other experts joining the events are Norma Erickson who has researched and written so many enlightening articles on SaneVax along with Freda Birrell who heads the UK Association of HPV Vaccine Injured Daughters and is featured on the Sacrificial Virgins documentary. The tour will also be attended by many of the girls who have had their health damaged after their Gardasil vaccines.
Here is an interview with Joan Shenton on 3AW radio earlier this week. She was interviewed by presenter Tom Elliott who quite rightly gave her time and respected her right to free speech.
Tickets are still available for the Sacrificial Virgins tour.
Have you noticed how many young girls who have become so unwell following Gardasil report the worsening of their symptoms after the second shot.
This research by Pompilio Martinez, MD from the School of Medicine, National University of Colombia explains why.
Pompilio Martinez describes the neurological symptoms of 62 girls who were vaccinated against the human papilloma virus (HPV). The quadrivalent HPV vaccine Gardasil was given to 61 Colombian girls and and the bivalent Cervarix was administered to one Mexican girl.
Martinez’s survey reveals an overall pattern of peripheral nervous system damage as demonstrated by complaints of inflammatory and neuropathic pain syndromes in the head, back, chest, arms and legs. There were also sensory and motor syndromes with upper and lower limb numbness and tingling (paraesthesia), muscle weakness and difficulty walking (paresis) accompanied by tremors, muscle spasms and twitches (abnormal movements).
It was found that most of these debilitating symptoms developed after the second shot of the HPV vaccine which corresponds to the greater antibody titres that occurs after booster vaccines. Dr Martinez explains the common process of adding an aluminium adjuvant to the vaccine in order to strengthen the immune response and subsequent antibody production.
However as a result a serious problem can occur if antibodies attack other tissues in the body inducing a process called ‘molecular mimicry’. These are called ‘cross-reacting’ antibodies or auto-antibodies and are capable of inducing disease in the body.
Initial exposure to the vaccine or infection induces the production of immunoglobulin which increases over several weeks after vaccination. Then with a repeated dose of the vaccine body cells are reactivated causing very high antibody concentration. Importantly these cross- reacting antibodies are reactivated also and minor damage can be worsened.
Some of these examples of molecular mimicry manifest as nerve demyelination and are experienced as muscle weakness, numbness and neuropathic pain. Some very unfortunate girls and boys develop respiratory muscle problems and require intubation and ventilation.
One of the striking findings of the survey was that symptoms developed after the second dose of the HPV vaccine. After the first dose only 15-30% of girls had symptoms but 48-80% were symptomatic after second dose. Symptom onset and disease severity increase with doses because of increased antibody titres.
This is what we are seeing in the girls who have become unwell after 2 or 3 doses of Gardasil. Frequently their stories are of worsening disease after the second dose of Gardasil.
In my book Gardasil: Fast-Tracked and Flawed I wrote about Australian woman Kristin Clulow and her battle with ill health following Gardasil. In May 2008, the 26-year-old Australian woman received the first dose of Gardasil, one of the human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccines on the market. Two weeks later, the fit young woman fell and broke her left foot and although perplexed at the ease at which she had incurred her fracture, she didn’t think the two events were connected. In August 2008, she dutifully turned up at her doctor’s office for her second shot of Gardasil. But shortly after this injection, Kristin’s health began to unravel. It started with a temporary loss of vision and mobility problems that made it impossible for her to run, jump, dance or wear her beloved heels. Then her handwriting failed her: “Handwriting just doesn’t suddenly go,” she cried. Worse was to come when Kristin’s speech became slurred: “They thought I’d had a stroke.” Kristin’s story is all too common with adverse effects following the HPV vaccines now well over 80,000 according to the World Health Organisation’s database.
Interpretation of the study
We can infer that auto-antibody concentration paralleled symptoms suffered by girls who became sick by Gardasil. That is, antibodies elicited by the first dose caused symptoms in a few girls; while greater antibody concentrations with a second dose would cause a greater number of them to fall sick. Although we have no lab evidence of antibodies changing in this fashion we don’t need it, since it’s a very well-established scientific fact that serum antibody titres change with vaccine doses
In the study it was found that when the girls were re-exposed to vaccine antigens the auto-antibodies rose and relapse occurred. When the auto-antibodies were removed then there was clinical improvement. Partial remission has been achieved with antibody removal therapies such as IVIg ( a solution of human plasma proteins and plasmapheresis (a process that filters the blood and removes harmful antibodies).
After two doses of Gardasil, Valentina developed flaccid paralysis in at least five muscle groups in her body. The young Colombian woman could not breathe and was intubated and ventilated and given plasmapheresis ridding her blood of the autoantibodies that had caused her paralysis.
This procedure is used for treating many autoimmune diseases which are increasing rapidly. It is not a treatment that is undertaken lightly with risks of complications as well as costing thousands of dollars. This is why there has to be more independent research such as what has been elicited by Martinez in Colombia. It is vital that the public understand the risks of these vaccines that are being given to teenagers all over the world.
How can we let this happen? All over the world girls and boys are becoming very ill after being vaccinated against HPV said to causing cervical cancer. But there is no scientific proof that the vaccine has ever prevented a single case of the cancer. Cervical cancer is well detected by Pap smear programs. There is no need for these harmful vaccines.
You couldn’t make this stuff up.
Two young Irish girls protesting against Gardasil a few days ago suffered seizures and needed hospital care, while inside the nearby Royal College of Physicians of Ireland, Professor Ian Frazer the co-developer of the vaccine was giving a speech and spruiking the ‘success’ of the Australian HPV vaccination program. Continue reading
A billboard displaying the question Do you know what’s in a vaccine? has been taken down. The Perth billboard went up on June 13 and a few days later was vandalised and removed.
But in the interim what wonderful publicity even though the cowardly press never asked the question asked on the billboard of the various health officials or politicians who were interviewed.
Incredible really that the journalists didn’t address the question but allowed AMA representative Dr Mark Duncan-Smith to have his say:
I think the billboard is fundamentally disgusting. This isn’t a debate about freedom of speech. This is a debate about vaccination and ant-vaccination…it is effectively a form of child abuse
If the powerless media won’t address the problem then it is up to us to continue to educate the public.
What is in a vaccine?
What is wrong with our media? Why is there censorship around the issue of vaccination. The number of vaccines has increased from three vaccines in 1960 to 52 doses of at least 22 vaccines in 2018. This is a good reason to have a debate. Why are our children given so many vaccine doses?
The US Vaccine Injury Compensation Scheme has paid out over $4 billion to vaccine victims and vaccines are described by the US government as being “unavoidably unsafe”. This statistic is believed to represent only 10% of those that are injured by vaccines.
According to the World Health Organisation’s database of adverse events Vigibase, there have been over 82,000 recorded adverse events following Gardasil.
The public needs to know these facts but the media is not doing its job; journalists are being censored. Even if they had doubts about the vaccination issue they would be persuaded from airing them.
Censorship of the vaccination issue
I remember listening to a talk back radio program on our local ABC radio about the flu vaccine. First we heard the health officials spruiking the vaccine and then it was over to the listeners to have their say. And sure enough when a very articulate caller began revealing the many problems with the vaccine he was cut off. This was the ABC not commercial radio.
According to honorary professor in the School of Humanities and Social Inquiry at the University of Wollongong, Sharon Beder:
Journalists are free to write what they like if they produce well-written stories ‘free of any politically discordant tones’, that is, if what they write fits the ideology of those above them in the hierarchy. A story that supports the status quo is generally considered to be neutral and its objectivity is not questioned, while one that challenges the status quo tends to be perceived as having a ‘point of view’ and therefore biased.
Stephen Tunley is a Director of SaneVax Inc who when I put this conundrum to him replied:
Fact is that with a regulator (TGA) wholly funded by those it administers, with a Government in the thrall of big corporations, with media under the thrall of the political interests of its owners, with Universities and teaching hospitals reliant on funding from Pharma the issues do not get an airtime
The conference will look at science and accountability in the vaccination industry. This includes the urgent need for an adequate active vaccine adverse events surveillance system to be put in place in Australia. The conference will also focus on the need for conflicts of interest with pharmaceutical companies to be made transparent at ALL levels of the current vaccination system in Australia.
