NY Mayor Wants More Forced Medicine

Laws Can Be Good for You, Mayor Tells Health Officials

"We rely on the forceful application of law democratically debated and approved as the principal instrument of our public health policy," proclaimed New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (D) to an enthusiastic audience of public health officials on June 14, 2006 at the CDC's "The Public Health and the Law in the 21st Century: Fifth Annual Partnership Conference" in Atlanta. Putting the emphasis on "control," the New York Mayor voiced support for more laws more strictly enforced by the nation's health police to solve the problem of rampant diabetes and other chronic illnesses plaguing the American people these days.

In what has become a familiar theme since the events of September 11, 2001, politicians are feeding the insatiable appetite of public health officials to force medical treatment on people. With so many Americans chronically ill and disabled after adhering to public health policies and mandates advocating increased use of prescription drugs and vaccines over the past half century, government officials are anxious to blame the poor health of America on the citizens themselves. "Blame the Victim" is a convenient out for government officials who are responsible for protecting the public health.

During the past five years, there have been a number of state and federal laws which have seriously eroded civil liberties in America. Many have involved handing over unprecendented power to government health officials to force citizens to engage in medical interventions without their informed consent. Politicians like Mayor Bloomberg appear to have little appreciation for the inherent danger in giving doctors employed by the State the power to force citizens to follow doctors' orders.

The book "The Nazi Doctors and the Nuremberg Code" by George Annas and Michael Grodin details many reasons why citizens of all states should require doctors to adhere to the ethical principle of informed consent when advocating citizens engage in any kind of medical treatment for the "greater good" of society.

Expert Calls for Health Workers to Get Flu Shots

In response to an article in the St. Petersburg Times, June 13, 2006
Expert calls for health workers to get flu shots

Mayo Clinic's Greg Poland, who is a member of the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), is calling for laws requiring all health care workers to be forced to get flu vaccinations. His suggestion is the latest in a series of calls for forced vaccination of citizens.

It is well known that two-thirds of all health care workers do not get annual flu vaccinations just like two-thirds of Americans don't get flu vaccinations. A bout with the flu now and then is no big deal for most people. Despite the billion dollar ad campaign being waged by the pharmaceutical industry and government to strike fear into the hearts of all Americans about getting the flu, most of us know the flu vaccine is both useless and risky.

When the CDC tried to persuade health care workers who would be "first responders" in a bioterrorism attack to get smallpox vaccinations post-September 11, 2001, the health care workers of America "just said no" and the Administration's mass vaccination scheme fizzled. When public health types in Washington state tried to force hospital nurses to get flu vaccinations or be fired, the nurses union took them to court and won the right to refuse to get flu vaccinations without informed consent. Later, hospital officials tried to force unvaccinated nurses to wear masks and the nurses took them to court again and won again.

Over the long run, forced medical interventions that carry risks do not work, except in repressive political systems that allow elitist groups within society to force others to risk their lives for what the elitists have decided is the "greater good." There are many examples in history when government health officials and those they persuade to do their bidding have wielded power and taken away civil and human rights. During the past century, the Third Reich in Germany during World War II and Communist China both suspended the human right to informed consent to medical interventions forced on the people by "health" officials. It started with bans on smoking and forced TB treatment and proceeded to forced abortions and euthanasia.

The right to informed consent to medical interventions, including vaccination, is a human right. Protecting individual inviolability becomes even more important when government health officials refuse to acnowledge biodiversity and inhumane one-size-fits-all vaccine policies end up targeting the genetically vulnerable for sacrifice.

Babies Die After MMR

In response to an article in the Daily Mail, United Kingdom, June 18, 2006
We won't allow MMR cover-up say parents of tragic toddlers

Every day that government health officials lie to the people about vaccine risks is one more day that the public loses a little more trust in what they are told by government. Do public health authorities and pediatricians really think that mothers and fathers are going to passively accept the brain damaging and killing of their children with unsafe vaccines? Do they really believe that the letters written after their names will protect them when the public knows the whole truth about what they have done to so many innocent children around the world?

Little 17 month old George Duncan and Anna Fisher died 10 days after their MMR vaccinations in Great Britain, both of them suffering symptoms of vaccine reactions prior to their deaths. MMR vaccine is known to induce brain inflammation and death within 8 to 14 days after vaccination.

The parents of both dead babies are demanding answers from British government health authorities, who have been persecuting Dr. Andrew Wakefield for his warning about the dangers of the live MMR vaccine. They and parents like them are standing up and coming forward to witness what has happened to their babies at the hands of pediatricians who told them that vaccines, including the MMR vaccine, are absolutely safe.

The vaccine deaths of these babies might have been prevented if George and Anna's parents had been given full and accurate information about MMR vaccine risk factors and pediatricians had erred on the side of caution rather than vaccinate at all costs. The rabid zeal to vaccinate, encouraged by government health officials, puts many vulnerable children at risk and the result is the brain damaging and killing of children like George and Anna.

Senator Denied Pharma Risk Data

In response to an article in the Washington Post, June 15, 2006
Senator's HHS Trip for Antibiotic Data Yields Only Ire

This story is not about vaccine risks. It is about a potentially deadly antibiotic and how far government health officials will go to cover for the pharmaceutical industry which they are supposed to be regulating.

Senator Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) has been an outspoken proponent of transparency and accountability in government, especially at the Department of Health and Human Services. On June 14, 2006, he got a taste of just how powerful federal health officials have become when he showed up at DHHS last week but left empty handed after officials denied his request for pre-licensure data on the safety of Ketek, an Aventis antibiotic that has been associated with severe liver damage. One person associated with pre-licensure clinical trials has already gone to prison for fraud.

What Senator Grassley learned first hand is that the Department of Health and Human Services operates rather like an extra-territorial government.

Congress has allowed the M.D./Ph.D. officials at the helm to be given authority historically reserved for heads of State such as monarchs, prime ministers and presidents. Unfortunately, the public is reaping the bitter harvest of unchecked power now in the hands of doctors who have much to hide when it comes to the toxicity of the drugs and vaccines they have pushed on the people.

Pencil Pushers Deny Vaccine/Optic Neuritis Link

In response to an article in Medscape, June 14, 2006
Optic Neuritis Not Linked to Anthrax, Hepatitis B, Influenza or Smallpox Vaccines

Optic neuritis is a demyelinating inflammation of the optic nerve. Many times development of optic neuritis precedes development of multiple sclerosis (MS), which is inflammation of the myelin sheath of the brain.

More than 75 percent of all females who develop optic neuritis go on to develop MS.
Multiple sclerosis, which affects more than 1 million people worldwide, is a dreaded chronic disease because it can cause severe deterioration of the brain and block nerve signals that control muscle coordination, strength, sensation and vision. Multiple sclerosis has been positively associated with hepatitis B vaccine in studies linvestigating the biological mechanism of molecular mimicry.

All vaccines have the potential to cause inflammation in the body, particularly brain inflammation leading to permanent brain damage. Public health officials and medical doctors promoting forced use of use of hepatitis B, influenza, anthrax and smallpox vaccines in the military and civilian life have a vested interest in denying an association between vaccination and serious chronic diseases, such as MS.

Those determined to deny an association between vaccine induced inflammatory conditions in the body usually like to use retrospective, case controlled "studies" that look at old medical records. Using pencils and calculators to dismiss causal associations between vaccines and chronic diseases is easier than having to look at real live patients or study what happens to their blood, urine, eyes, brain, colons, etc. after vaccination.

The pathetic attempts by the pencil pushers to write off onset of brain and immune system dysfunction after vaccination in previously healthy people as just a "coincidence" will not wash. The people, whose lives have been ruined by doctors too proud to admit the harm being done, will not let them get away with it.

UK Docs Attack Wakefield

In 1997, Andy Wakefield, M.D. was a guest speaker at the First International Public Conference on Vaccination sponsored by the National Vaccine Information Center in Washington, D.C. The title of his talk was "Measles Virus and Measles Vaccine: Lessons to be Learned" and he made his presentation despite threats from people in high places in the medical profession in Great Britain and elsewhere who warned him his career was on the line.

Although Kathi Williams and I assured him we would understand and the audience would understand if he had to withdraw in order to save his career, Dr. Wakefield declined the offer. Refusing to be bullied by those acting more like hit men in a medical mafia than healers, he said "I will not live my life in fear." He believed what he had discovered about measles virus, MMR vaccine, intestinal bowel disease and and autism was something that had to be discussed publicly to prevent more children from being harmed.

From the moment Andy Wakefield stood his ground and said "I will not live my life in fear" and then went on to talk with me about how important it was to stand up for the truth even though you risk your life to do it, I knew he was an extraordinary individual. I knew he would make history but pay a terrible price for it.

During the past 25 years of work to prevent vaccine injuries and deaths through public education and defend the informed consent ethic, I have seen doctors who tell the truth about vaccine risks be viciously attacked by their colleagues in government, industry and academia. The attacks are both professional and personal and, with surgical precision, the goal is to evisicerate rather than simply stun the victim. It is an ugly process and it has a distinctly Spanish Inquisition flavor to it.

Undaunted, Dr. Wakefield has continued to conduct his humanitarian research into the biological mechanisms for MMR vaccine induced neuroimmune dysfunction. Finally, after nearly a decade of persecution for conducting scientific research that questions the scientific and moral integrity of one-size-fits-all mass vaccination policies, Andy Wakefield's accusers are taking him to their own Medical Court. In a final attempt to silence him, they want to take away his medical license and his ability to care for vaccine injured children.

The BBC in London said the General Medical Council is charging Dr. Wakefield with carrying out "inadequately founded" research, failing to obtain ethical committee approval before publishing, acquiring funding improperly and subjecting children to 'unnecessary and invasive investigations.'

A leading London newspaper, The Daily Mail, protested Dr. Wakefield's treatment by the General Medical Council, saying "He had a duty to speak out and now he is being made to suffer for it. His treatment by the GMC is utterly unjust. If this preposterous body had existed 200 years ago, defending the prevailing wisdom against new ideas, doctors would still be treating illnesses by slitting their patients' veins."

F.E. Yazbak, M.D., FAAP, a pediatrician and researcher of autoimmune regressive autism and vaccine injury, has published an excellent analysis of the scientific issues and political motives involved in Wakefield's persecution at the hands of the medical hierarcrhy. Dr. Yazbak's article "When Finding Nothing Is Wonderful" was first published on RedFlags on June 9, 2006. <http://www.redflagsdaily.com/yazbak/2006_jun09?from=0>

Germ Phobia Causes Inflammatory Disease

In response to an article from The Lansing State Journal posted on Yahoo! News, June 10, 2006
Worms May Help Bowel Disease

Public health officials have had an unhealthy obsession with mircoorganisms for nearly 200 years and have successfully communicated their fear of germs to the general public, which is now infected with the same fear. Like an Army on amphetamines, the M.D./Ph.D. public health generals directing the War on Disease have hunted down microorganisms using humans injected with antibiotics or vaccines they have created as weapons.

In their ignorance, they have failed to take into account the evolution of man and the viruses and bacteria which have co-existed with man for as long as he has walked the earth. Now, the human immune system is being manipulated from the first day of life and throughout childhood through injection of multiple vaccines containing lab altered viruses and bacteria and toxic additives. Unable to function and mature normally, meeting the challenge from viruses and bacteria by stimulating and resolving inflammation, the immature human immune system is crippled and gets "stuck" on inflammation.

If children are genetically vulnerable to autoimmune dysfunction, they are the first to become stuck on inflammation after vaccnation. Millions of inflammed children, suffering from asthma, juvenile diabetes, autism, developmental delays, inflammatory bowel disease, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, severe, life threatening allergies and other neurimmune dysfunction never had a chance to mature into healthy teenagers and adults.

Their immune systems have been too busy trying to deal with the constant assault of too many vaccines too early in life.

But some researchers think they have the answer to healing at least one kind of inflammation children are suffering. They are giving children worm eggs to swallow so parasitic worms can infect the children's inflammed intestines and resolve inflammation. It appears worms, which have also lived on earth for as long as man, can sometimes have a symbiotic relationship with man and do him some good.

Too bad the Generals running the War on Disease using syringes as guns didn't stop to consider that maybe infection in childhood with microorganisms that cause mostly benign childhood diseases, such as chicken pox and flu, might have done the developing immune system of kids some good.

Then maybe kids wouldn't have to swallow worms so their immune systems could function properly and keep them healthy.

Millions of American Children Disabled

In response to an article in Pediatrics, June 2006
Emotional, Developmental, and Behavioral Health of American Children and Their Families: A Report From the 2003 National Survey of Children's Health

Slowly but surely, the epidemic of chronic disease and disability affecting millions of learning disabled, hyperactive, autistic, developmentally delayed children is beginning to be acknowledged by the American medical community. The data collected in the 2003 National Survey of Children's Health is just the tip of the iceberg, as pediatrician researchers at University of Virginia seem to suggest.

At risk are not just the individual children suffering from learning and behavior disorders with biological causes, but their families and communities. The chronic disease and disability epidemic is having profound and catastrophic effects on American society and these effects will only worsen economically and socially in the future.

Public health officials, who continue to promote one-size-fits all vaccination policies which do not take into account genetic and other biological differences between our children, are responsible for what has happened. By insisting that all children use 48 doses of 14 vaccines by age six, they have set up the genetically vulnerable for chronic inflammation leading to neuroimmune dysfunction.

The chronic disease and disability epidemic will not go away until those operating the mass vaccination system take an honest look at what they have done and act to repair the damage and prevent further damage from occurring.

Parents to CDC: Get Mercury Out of Vaccines

The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) co-signed a letter to the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) along with other parent and health advocacy organizations supporting removal of mercury from vaccines. Mercury is toxic to the human brain and does not belong in any product humans use, especially a medical product which is injected into infants, children and pregnant women.

Although removal of mercury from vaccines will not eliminate vaccine injuries caused by other biological mechanisms involved in vaccine-induced brain and immune system dysfunction, it will prevent children and the unborn from being deliberately exposed to a known neurotoxin. The precautionary principle should prevail whenever there is a question of harm that could be done by a medical intervention.

The National Vaccine Information Center supports the human right to informed consent to any medical intervention which can cause injury or death. If parents choose to vaccinate their children, they should be fully informed about all risks and have the option of using vaccines which do not contain a known neurotoxin.

Parent Community Demands Mercury-Free Vaccines; Needless Exposure is Unjustified and Dangerous, Groups Say
To: National Desk, Health Reporter

WASHINGTON, June 13 /U.S. Newswire/ -- Several national organizations and parent advocacy groups are requesting that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) state a preference for mercury-free flu vaccinations, according to a letter sent today to the ACIP committee and to members of Congress. ACIP is responsible for creating national immunization recommendations and parents are hoping that they will act on their concerns.

In 1999, the federal government vowed to remove mercury from all vaccinations routinely administered to infants and children. However, the flu vaccine still contains the mercury preservative thimerosal, and is now routinely administered to pregnant women, infants and children. The Institute of Medicine recommended in 2001 that thimerosal be removed from vaccines administered to these sensitive groups, but the recommendation fell on deaf ears at CDC.

According to the EPA, one in every six women of childbearing age already has blood levels of mercury high enough to cause neurological damage to their unborn children due to environmental exposures alone. Thimerosal-containing vaccines given to infants can result in mercury levels known to cause adverse neurological outcomes. "Injecting even more mercury into the bodies of pregnant women, infants and children when it is not a necessary component of vaccines is just bad medicine," states Lyn Redwood, president of SafeMinds and parent of a mercury-injured child.

According to an ad that ran in today's Atlanta Journal Constitution (AJC) sponsored by Parents and Friends of Children Injured by Mercury in Vaccines, a person must weigh over 500 pounds in order to "safely" process the amount of mercury still present in these vaccinations. In addition, the flu vaccine contains so much mercury that it must be disposed of as a hazardous waste if it is not used.

"This situation is impossible to justify," states Dr. Vicky Debold "especially when the manufacturer of thimerosal-free flu vaccines, Sanofi Pasteur, was fully prepared to more than double the production of mercury-free flu vaccinations this year. However, demand for the product has been low because CDC did not express a preference for mercury- free flu shots and the manufacturer decreased production. Should CDC change its recommendation, demand would skyrocket resulting in additional production of mercury free vaccines."

Fast Rollout of Shingles Vaccine

In repsonse to an article in MedPage Today, May 30, 2006
Fast Rollout of Shingles Vaccine Planned After FDA's OK

The FDA approval of Merck's shingles vaccine (Zostavax) to counteract the effects of mass use of Merck's chicken pox vaccine will help Merck recover financially from the loss of Vioxx revenues. But will Zostavax help or hurt those who are too frail to make or are prevented from making fully informed vaccination decisions? There are already indications that Zostavax is capable of inducing autoimmunity or worsening a pre-existing autoimmune disorder as well as raising the risk of heart disease conditions.

With many of America's elderly held captive by HMO's and nursing homes, which prevent them from exercising voluntary, informed consent to medical treatment, how many will be harmed by forced use of a shingles vaccine? Had most children not been forced to use chicken pox vaccine since 1995, many older children and adults would not be suffering from shingles in what has become a shingles epidemic in America.

A painful, expensive bout with shingles is prevented when those, who have recovered from chicken pox in childhood, have their cell mediated immunity asymptomatically "boosted" by coming into close contact with young children who are infected with chicken pox. For 99.9 percent of healthy children, chicken pox is a mild disease without complications. The vaccine was originally developed for immune compromised leukemic children, who could not withstand a bout with chicken pox without severe complications.

Shingles could be prevented, not by sticking grandma and grandpa with a needle full of a shingles vaccine that can trigger autoimmunity and heart disease, but by getting a hug from a grandchild who is getting or recovering from chicken pox. But the elderly in America can't do that anymore. There is no chicken pox around. Just shingles and needles filled with Zostavax.

FDA To Force Testing of Americans

In response to an article by the Associated Press, June 7, 2006
Informed Consent Waived in Public Crisis

BL Fisher Note:
The noose is tightening around the neck of the American public. Since Sept. 11, 2001, federal and state health officials have persuaded Congress and the state legislatures to pass legislation that will take away our civil liberties and use the militia to arrest, quarantine and force experimental drugs and vaccines on us without our informed consent whenever the unelected Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) declares an "emergency." Now, the FDA has issued a rule that will allow public health officials to pull us out of our homes and, without our voluntary informed consent, use experimental medical tests to test us for "diseases" whenever that "emergency" is declared.

Will there be any guarantee these experimental tests are accurate? Will we become guinea pigs in service to zealous public health officials and drug companies profiting by our forced compliance?
What is certain is that if any of us are injured by the forced testing and use of experimental drugs and vaccines, the public health officials and drug companies responsible for harming us will not be held accountable in a court of law. Congress made sure of that when it passed the Project Bioshield and Pandemic Flu legislation during the past two years.

It is time for citizens to stand up and hold their elected officials at the state and federal level responsible for what they have done. The unchecked power that they have handed over to M.D./Ph.D. public health officials in government health agencies is not only dangerous to the public health, it is a threat to fundamental freedoms guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution. Just as we don't have to be rocket scientists to understand the flaws in the junk science DHHS passes off as proof that vaccines are without significant risks, it doesn't take a constitutional lawyer to figure out when our constitutional and human rights are being taken away.
