Problems in Vaccination Paradise By Mrs Vera West
Which juicy news item do I start with first? Tossing a coin, or a vaccination syringe, first up, Oxford University scientists trialled a TB vaccine on humans that did not pass an animal test model using monkeys: http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-and-families/health-news/oxford-university-scientists-trial-tb-vaccine-babies-monkeys-did-not-work-a7928911.html.
Wait, that should read, hundreds of babies:
“The worrying results from a tuberculosis vaccine trial on monkeys before they tested the treatment on hundreds of babies were ignored by scientists at Oxford University, a former principal research fellow at the institution has claimed.
Professor Peter Beverley said that plans to inoculate almost 1,500 children were drawn up without disclosing data that seemed to show that primates given the immunisation in a trial appeared to “die rather rapidly”.
He told the BBC’s File on Four that it “seemed a little bit strange” that most of the primates treated with the vaccine were having to be put down after they became ill.
“Certainly here in this experiment, there is no evidence whatsoever that this is an effective booster vaccine,” he said.
Trials on monkeys saw all of them infected with TB. However, one group was given the widely used Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) jab, the second as given no immunisation and a third was given BCG plus new vaccine.”
Shouldn’t people be a wee bit concerned that the monkeys had died, and isn’t such research therefore unethical? Anyone?
“Researchers concluded that the amount of TB bacteria used in the study was too high, which lead to the high level of fatalities among monkeys given the vaccine, they said.
Public Health England said that since it was not a pre-clinical trial to support the progression of the vaccine into humans, but instead a separate trial that would inform future animal tests, the results were not [relevant].
An investigation into Professor Beverley’s complaint found no wrongdoing took place.
But, it concluded that it “would have been good practice for the potentially adverse reaction observed in the monkey experiment to be reported to the authorities in a more timely fashion.”
Well, it is all ok then, nothing at all to worry about. Let the monkeys worry about their dead! I suppose they were holding funerals for their dead, by the hundreds.
Then, we have the news that low levels of mercury exposure can alter gene expression:
Mercury, even a low concentration, was found to disrupt the metabolism of algae through the alteration of gene expression. Mike Adams raises the point that vaccines containing thimerosal, have ethylmercury, which is dangerous to cell mitochondria:
If mercury is dangerous to microalgae, how much more dangerous must it be to humans? Why then is debate about this issue being suppressed, when clearly there is a public interest in such knowledge?
