Movie Vaxxed gets up Qld Health Minister’s nose
Movie Vaxxed exposes CDC research fraud and cover-up
By Brent Melville
QUEENSLAND Health Minister Cameron Dick was either seriously misinformed, ignorant, or flat out lying when, in response to the touring movie Vaxxed: From Coverup to Catastrophe, he said “there is no shred of credible scientific evidence to support claims that vaccinations are dangerous” (Gold Coast Bulletin, 15/7/17).
The same with Victorian Health Minister Jill Hennessy who stated on Seven News in February last year: “There are no risks in vaccinating your children – the science is really clear”.
Vaxxed: From Coverup to Catastrophe traces the case of UK gastroenterologist Dr Andrew Wakefield who, in the 1990s, discovered 10 of his patients developed health problems following MMR vaccines. His research was published in The Lancet medical journal in 1998. Wakefield advocated separating measles, mumps, rubella into separate vaccines to test their safety. The request was ignored, but Dr Wakefield was ruthlessly hounded by the UK and global media and British Medical Association, which later deregistered him and his research associate Professor John Walker-Smith, accusing them of fraudulent research. The UK High Court later exonerated Prof. Walker-Smith and by default, Dr Wakefield.
Vaxxed also shows how US research scientist Brian Hooker then took up the issue of vaccine damage after his boy became severely autistic after vaccination. He sought answers from the Centres for Disease Control, and was helped by a CDC scientist and whistleblower Dr William Thompson. The CDC is the US government researcher for medicines but has the conflicting role of profit-making organisation.
Meanwhile in Queensland, joining in the chorus of pharma-funded cowards attacking the documentary was LNP leader Tim Nicholls, Premier Anastasia Palasczuk, Education Minister Kate Jones (who attacked Miami High School for hiring out its hall for the movie to the Australian Vaccination Sceptics Network – AVN) and of course the Murdoch media, whose bosses’ roles on big pharma boards are well known.
The seriously misinformed Mr Dick called for a “public boycott” of Vaxxed, which of course was ignored. Venues at Maleny, Brisbane and the Gold Coast were filled up by people keen to know more about this national scandal.
Somewhat surprisingly, the only voice of reason was Australian Medical Association president Michael Gannon. His media statement admitted there is actually a medical controversy over vaccines. Gannon stated: “We encourage free speech and we encourage openness of thought, but this (vaccination) is not an area where there is a great deal of conjecture between scientists and medical professionals.” (GC Bulletin, 15/7/17).
In fact, there is a good deal of conjecture about vaccines among medical professionals and scientists. But Gannon is right to say free speech and openness of thought is what people want to see. The AMA, which holds great sway over political parties and government, could end this nonsense by calling for an open and proper investigation of vaccine safety. Or are they also under the spell of big pharma billions? Or is it “too costly” to compensate the tens of thousands of vaccine-inured people worldwide.
Dick, Hennessy and the rest of the chorus deny there is any conjecture or harm, and in so doing basically spit in the face of Australian parents who find their children with ongoing neurological disorders, autoimmune diseases and even cot death after vaccination.
For the benefit of Mr Dick, Ms Hennessy, the media and others, following are links to four “shreds” of credible scientific evidence from a few studies listed on the official US government medical research website PubMed, that raise links between vaccines, auto-immune diseases, autism and other neurological disorders.
Dr Hooker, who joined the Vaxxed tour, says there are in fact more than 100 studies on PubMed on autism, neurological developmental disorders (NDDs) and vaccination. But here’s a few specific studies our blind, deaf and dumb health ministers and their advisers refuse to look at.
1. Neurological and autoimmune disorders after vaccination against pandemic influenza A (H1N1) with a monovalent adjuvanted vaccine: population based cohort study in Stockholm, Sweden. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21994316 Conclusion in part: “… Relative risks were significantly increased for Bell’s palsy, paraesthesia, and inflammatory bowel disease after vaccination, predominantly in the early phase of the vaccination campaign…”.
