Vaccines Cause Autism Says Confidential Document from Corrupt Drug Company!

  • Vaccines cause autism, says confidential document from corrupt drug company!
    by Jennifer Lilley, http://www.naturalnews.com/
    (NaturalNews) While the debate rages on about whether or not vaccines cause autism, a confidential document has surfaced that makes clear what science has led Natural News readers to believe: Yes, vaccines are linked to autism.

    The document,[PDF] which runs over 1,000 pages, is from the fraudulent and corrupt GlaxoSmithKline. Several hundred pages in, it’s revealed that vaccines are tied to autism. It’s blatantly outlined in a chart, along with a long list of other conditions caused by vaccines, including “motor development delay,” “tremor” and “altered state of consciousness.” Autism is listed in this chart as a nervous system and mental impairment disorder associated with receiving GSK’s Infanrix hexa vaccine.(1)

    Signed by Dr. Felix Arellano, the Vice President and Head of Biological Safety and Pharmacovigilance of GlaxoSmithKline Biologicals, the document’s introduction states:

    This summary bridging report integrates the information presented in the two Combined Diphtheria, Tetanus and Acellular Pertussis, Hepatitis B enhanced Inactivated Poliomyelitis and
    Haemophilus influenzae type B vaccine (Infanrix™ hexa) periodic safety update reports (PSURs) covering the two year period from 23 October 2009 to 22 October 2011.(1)


    Vaccine is “favourable,” despite long list of health conditions
    The document suggests that, although there are several adverse health effects associated with vaccine, the risk is not deemed to be problematic:

    The Company will continue to monitor cases of anaemia haemolytic autoimmune, thrombocytopenia, thrombocytopenic purpura, autoimmune thrombocytopenia, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, haemolytic anemia, cyanosis, injection site nodule, abcess and injection site abscess, Kawasaki’s disease, important neurological events (including encephalitis and encephalopathy), Henoch-Schonlein purpura, petechiae, purpura, haematochezia, allergic reactions (including anaphylactic and anaphylactoid reactions) cases of lack of effectiveness as well as fatal cases
    .(1)

    Yet, despite the long list of health problems mentioned, the document maintains, “The benefit/risk profile of Infanrix hexa continues to be favourable.”(1)

    In 2014, Infanrix was ruled by an Italian court to be responsible for a young Milan boy developing autism shortly after receiving the GlaxoSmithKline vaccine. As such, the decision was to award the boy for his vaccine-induced autism.(2)

CAUGHT ON TAPE: Senator Takes Orders From Lobbyist!

  • Published on Apr 21, 2015
    A Controversial Vote is taking place in California today on Senate Bill 277. Legislation that will make vaccinations mandatory for any child attending public OR Private School while stripping away any personal and religious exemptions.


    Last week, more than 700 parents showed up to voice their opposition to the controversial SB277. When it was clear that the legislation didn’t have the support needed to push through, one Committee Chair, who supports the bill, threw the bill’s author a bone. At the close of the meeting, she advised Senator Pan to postpone the vote one week. Instead of listening to the deafening calls of California voters, Senator Pan turned to a lobbyist for advice on whether or not to postpone the vote.

    Alternative Health Journalist and Researcher, Jefferey Jaxen, reports on some breaking developments in this situation as parents now face the real possibility of forced vaccination for their children attending public school.

GSK Vaccine Recall: Flulaval – “Might Cause More Harm Than Good”!

Flulaval-vaccine-insert-no-controlled-trials

  • GSK Vaccine Recall: Flulaval – “Might Cause More Harm Than Good”!
    by , http://www.occupycorporatism.com/home/  
    GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) have ordered a recall of their 4 in 1 vaccine called Flulaval Quadrivalent Thimerosal “due to effectiveness issues”.

    GSK said “the vaccine might cause more harm than good because it is not good enough to protect someone from the current flu strains present in the US.”

    Flulaval “was designed” to protect against Type A and B and 2 other flu strains which makes it a quadrivalent vaccine – the new standard in inoculations.

    GSK admitted in a statement “[we] cannot rule out prospective suboptional protection” for those who received Flulaval in early January of this year or later.

    This information was disseminated in a letter to GSK clients such as wholesale distributors, pharmacies, government agencies and physicians in the US.

    Because Flulaval is ineffective, 1.7 million doses are being recalled while GSK conducts testing on the product to prove efficiency. 

    Anna Padula, spokesperson for GSK claims that this recall is in no way “a result of any identified safety concern[s].” The ingredients of Fluval include: 

    • “inactivated” influenza virus 
    • Formaldehyde 
    • Sodium Deoxycholate 
    • Saline solution 
    • Thimerosal 
    • Ovalbumin 
    • Polysorbate 

    GSK markets Flulaval as “a vaccine indicated for active immunization disease”; however does not indicate that the vaccine is effectual.

    According to the insert for Flulaval, “there have been no controlled trials adequately demonstrating a decrease in influenza disease after vaccination with” this product.

    Another shocking confession about Flulaval by GSK is that the vaccine has “not been evaluated for carcinogenic or mutagenic potential, [and] impairment of fertility” along with the fact that “safety and effectiveness of Flulaval in pediatric patients [has] not been established” which includes:

    • Pregnant women
    • Women nursing
    • children

Brain-Damaged Victims of Swine Flu Vaccine Win $63 Million Lawsuit!

  • Brain-Damaged Victims of Swine Flu Vaccine Win $63 Million Lawsuit!
    by JEFFEREY JAXEN | WWW.INFOWARS.COM  
    GSK has paid out $9.1 billion since 2003 
    GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) is in the news again making headlines after having to settle another major lawsuit bringing the latest total to over $9.1 billion since 2003. This time, it is due to GSK’s product Pandemrix, which was the swine flu vaccine forced upon the public during the pandemic of 2009 (which is argued by some to have been fake). As the victims are being compensated in the U.K., the same neurological mechanisms that damaged the children in the lawsuit are still potentially at work in the confirmed excitotoxicity that takes place after many vaccine injections.

    According to the International Business Times U.K. Edition, each of the victims is “expected to receive £1 million each.” Peter Todd, a lawyer who represented many of the claimants, told the Sunday Times (U.K.):

    “There has never been a case like this before. The victims of this vaccine have an incurable and lifelong condition and will require extensive medication.”

    Unfortunately for Peter Todd and the countless other victims, there has been cases like this before. Neurological damage from vaccines is not a rare occurrence. In fact, the U.S. government has paid out $3 billion and counting to families of vaccine-injured children. Most of which were due to direct neurological damage or complications arising from such damage.

Exposed! Millions of Girls Given Vaccines Secretly Spiked with Sterilization Drugs!

  • Published on Apr 18, 2015
    Although some might call it a conspiracy theory, the World Health Organization, UNICEF, and the United Nations have been accused for decades of trying to secretly reduce the world’s population by hiding contraceptives in vaccines that are purported to be for other purposes.


    In 1992, during a meeting at the UN headquarters in Geneva, scientists and “women’s health advocates” discussed the use of “fertility regulating vaccines, particularly the anti-Human Chorionic Gonadotropin vaccine. (source)

    If you had any doubt in your mind that this was true, doctors at a Catholic hospital in Kenya are out to prove that millions of girls have been tricked into receiving an injection that will render them sterile for years.

    Independent laboratory testing has confirmed that a tetanus vaccine given to over 2.3 million young women in Kenya contained the HCG antigen.

    HCG was developed by the WHO as a long-term contraceptive. It causes the body to attack a fetus through an antibody response, and can cause spontaneous abortions for 3 years after the woman is injected with the drug.

IV Vitamin C Therapy: A Cancer Perspective!

  • IV Vitamin C Therapy: A Cancer Perspective!
    by Jonathan Landsman, http://www.naturalnews.com/  
    (NaturalNews) Cancer patients need to understand the danger of vitamin C deficiencies – especially when looking to overcome a cancer diagnosis. In truth, most people suffering with any chronic degenerative disease are vitamin C deficient. Sadly, it’s a fact that Western medicine refuses to recognize due to the influence of the pharmaceutical industry.

    Cancer patients find relief with IV vitamin C therapy. Over 40 years ago, Nobel laureate Linus Pauling and Ewan Cameron, MD, a Scottish cancer surgeon, demonstrated the effectiveness of 10,000 mg of vitamin C, per day, to reverse cancer in thirteen patients – that were left to die by conventional medicine. On the next NaturalNews Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman and Ronald Hunninghake, M.D. talk about the healing power of vitamin C. Do not miss this extraordinary program.

    Truth exposed: Western medicine continues to ignore the truth about vitamin C and natural cancer therapies
    Excited about the healing power of vitamin C, Linus Pauling went to the National Cancer Institute, where he was systematically ignored and ridiculed. To this day, if you visit any conventional cancer website (controlled by the pharmaceutical industry) – especially the American Cancer Society – you’ll discover a complete lack of honesty about the effectiveness of vitamin C for cancer patients. This deliberate attempt to brainwash society – including unsuspecting medical professionals – creates the false paradigm that surgery, chemotherapy and radiation is the only ‘reasonable’ approach to treating cancer. (Nothing could be further from the truth!)

The First Person Who Will Live To Be 1,000 Years Old is Alive Today? Biological Revolution Enabling Humans to Experience Everlasting Youthfulness is Coming!

http://content.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,2048299,00.html

We’re fast approaching the moment when humans and machines merge. Welcome to the Singularity movement

  • Researchers believe a biological revolution enabling humans to experience everlasting youthfulness is coming!
    by http://www.news.com.au/
    IT is likely the first person who will live to be 1,000 years old is already alive today.

    This is according to a growing regiment of researchers who believe a biological revolution enabling humans to experience everlasting youthfulness is just around the corner.

    At the epicentre of the research is Aubrey de Grey — a Cambridge gerontologist and co-founder or the California-based Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence(SENS) Research Foundation.

    “The first thing I want to do is get rid of the use of this word immortality, because it’s enormously damaging, it is not just wrong, it is damaging,” he told Motherboard.

    “It means zero risk of death from any cause — whereas I just work on one particular cause of death, namely ageing.”

    Mr de Grey said his research aims to undo the damage done by the wear and tear of life, as opposed to stopping the ageing process altogether.

    “If we ask the question: ‘Has the person been born who will be able to escape the ill health of old age indefinitely?’ Then I would say the chances of that are very high,” he said. “Probably about 80 per cent.”

    To achieve longevity, de Grey is developing a therapy to kill cells that have lost the ability to divide, allowing healthy cells to multiply and replenish the tissue.

    “The therapies that we are working on at the moment are not going to be perfect,” he said. “These therapies are going to be good enough to take middle age people, say people aged 60, and rejuvenate them thoroughly enough so they won’t be biologically 60 again until they are chronologically 90.

    “That means we have essentially bought 30 years of time to figure out how to re-rejuvenate them when they are chronologically 90 so they won’t be biologically 60 for a third time until they are 120 or 150.

Major Hospital Infected 700 with STDs in Experiments, $1 Billion Lawsuit Says! John Hopkins and Rockefeller Foundation Blamed !

  • Major Hospital Infected 700 with STDs in Experiments, $1 Billion Lawsuit Says! John Hopkins and Rockefeller Foundation Blamed !
    by ANDRE EVANS, http://naturalsociety.com/  
    A class action lawsuit has been filed by a large group of over 700 Guatemalans seeking $1 billion. The plaintiffs were either directly or indirectly the victims of experiments allegedly perpetrated by the John Hopkins University in tandem with the Rockefeller foundation.

    From 1945 to the early 50’s, a collection of Guatemalan sex workers, government workers, prisoners, patients, and military were infected with STDs unknown to them
    , while researchers tested which pharmaceuticals were the most effective in treating their disease. Because of this, these test subjects unwittingly spread the venereal diseases to their spouses, family and friends, causing injury and death in some cases.


    Nearly seventy years later in 2010, the US government issued a public apology since these experiments came to light, and a similar lawsuit was filed against them in 2012. Though admitted to be unethical and apologizing for the harm done, the judge ruled that the disgruntled Guatemalans couldn’t sue the US for grievances that happened overseas, and that health officials in the current administration had nothing to do with the experiments personally.

Whooping Cough Outbreak in Only Vaccinated Children!

  • Whooping Cough Outbreak in Only Vaccinated Children!
    by Dena Schmidt, staff writer, http://www.naturalhealth365.com/  
    An alarming outbreak of pertussis (whooping cough) is currently sweeping through the Park City, Utah area. And the news is not good for the vaccine industry – as you’ll soon see.

    This whooping cough outbreak marks the first time in many years that the area has experienced even one case of pertussis. So far, 19 kids have been diagnosed with the illness.

    Is the pertussis vaccine causing pertussis?
    The most alarming aspect of the matter is that so far, all of the children diagnosed with whooping cough had been vaccinated against it. Of course, medical authorities have no good answer or understanding about how this could happen – fueling the debate about vaccine dangers. Unfortunately, some in the pro-vaccine community are attempting to twist things around as a “plus” for vaccines.

    Dozens of children have been tested so far, making it a busy week for pediatricians in Park City. Many more kids are expected to be tested. Pertussis is highly contagious, and it is perplexing to Park City officials that all of the infected kids are up to date with vaccinations; however, it is not as surprising to those who are already aware of vaccine dangers.

    Pro-vaccine advocates twist the truth to support the pharmaceutical industry
    Needless to say, parents are demanding answers as to why kids who received the pertussis vaccine were the ones to come down with it. While some medical experts have tried to remind parents that such vaccines are only “90 to 95 percent effective,” the sheer number of kids who are being affected in Park City suggest that this percentage is much, much lower.

    Pertussis begins with cold-like symptoms and progresses rapidly to a severe cough. Some medical professionals are lamely offering the consolation that since the kids were immunized – their cases of whooping cough aren’t as contagious and won’t be as severe as they would’ve been otherwise.

    They even have the gall to say that infants and immuno-compromised persons are “fortunate,” as they would’ve been much more ill if they hadn’t had the vaccine.

    It’s no surprise: Vaccine history repeats itself
    The truth is that the medical community has known about the pertussis vaccine dangers since at least 2010. One study done in California after a whooping cough outbreak there showed that 81 percent of whooping cough cases in children occurred in those who had received the pertussis vaccine; only eight percent of the infected persons had not been vaccinated.

Federal Govt Admits Marijuana Kills Brain Tumors But You Still Can’t Have It!

  • Federal Govt Admits Marijuana Kills Brain Tumors But You Still Can’t Have It!
    by ANTHONY GUCCIARDI | WWW.INFOWARS.COM  
    Safer than big pharma drugs.
    The federal government admits in newly funded research that compounds found in marijuana have an unprecedented ability to go in and kill brain tumors without any negative side effects. But you’re still going to jail if you try and use it as a medication.

    And let’s be clear here: we’re not talking about prosecution for those who just ‘want to get high.’ In fact, as I’ve explained before, the true health effects of marijuana really don’t have to come with its infamous psychoactive effect Instead, we look to the non-THC (which is what gets you high) compounds within marijuana that are specifically known for their anti-cancer and antioxidant effects.

    The worst part is that even marijuana without THC is still illegal, despite having zero ‘high’ effects. But then again, this new study on anti-tumor activity even focuses on extracts of marijuana that often do not cause any high either. As reported by Raw Story on the latest study

    “In a  report issued by a U.S. government-funded research group tasked with studying drug abuse and addiction, researchers are admitting that marijuana is useful in killing off specific types of brain tumors. The report — coming from a government-backed  group with annual budget of over $1 billion — arrives at an awkward time for the administration following an announcement by the Department of Justice this week that it will continue to prosecute medical marijuana cases against individuals in defiance of Congress.”

    A quick search within the PubMed National Library of Medicine database for ‘marijuana’ turns up a host of studies, highlighting every aspect imaginable regarding the plant in its many forms. Some advocacy websites have evencompiled a list of studies in an easy-to-read format surrounding marijuana, which has led numerous journalists to ask the obvious question: “why are we spending so much time researching an illegal drug for its numerous benefits while stamping side-effect-riddled drugs with the FDA stamp of approval with far less research?”

    The truth? Marijuana is backed by more clinical research than most pharmaceutical drugs.

Cancer Drug Company Accused of Hiding Cheap Alternative!

  • Cancer Drug Company Accused of Hiding Cheap Alternative!
    by CHRISTINA SARICH, http://naturalsociety.com/  
    Artificially jacking up prices.
    Pharmaceutical companies have been known to discredit natural, cheap solutions that compete with their high-dollar drugs. Now, the British Medical Journal has unraveled new research revealing how the makers of a cancer drug are blocking public access to a cheaper, safe, and effective alternative.

    The BMJ explains that Novartis, a company which markets a licensed cancer drug known as Lucentis, which is used for macular degeneration, tried to derail research on another treatment called Avastin. Novartis denies this claim, but they have the market cornered because they sell the only officially licensed drug in the UK.


    Many doctors use Avastin as a cheaper but unlicensed alternative to treat wet age-related macular degeneration (AMD), which affects more than 26,000 people in the UK annually. Approximately 11 million in the US have been diagnosed with some sort of macular degeneration with that number expected to double by 2050.

    Lucentis costs the NHS around £740 per dose (around $1,100 US dollars). Avastin, on the other hand, would cost between £50 and £65 per dose.

    Doctors still prescribe it, though it hasn’t been authorized to be used for macular degeneration. Some doctors are concerned about being personally liable if they prescribe the cheaper drug, and therefore, don’t.

Monsanto Employee Admits an Entire Department Exists to “Discredit” Scientists!

Hee Hee!

MonSatan-Skull_bones

  • Monsanto Employee Admits an Entire Department Exists to “Discredit” Scientists!
    by CHRISTINA SARICH, http://naturalsociety.com/  
    But no one knows about it.
    Dare to publish a scientific study against Big Biotech, and Monsanto will defame and discredit you. For the first time, a Monsanto employee admits that there is an entire department within the corporation with the simple task of ‘discrediting’ and ‘debunking’ scientists who speak out against GMOs.

    The WHO recently classified glyphosate, a chemical in Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide Roundup, as carcinogenic – news that is really heating things up with biotech. So Monsanto has been demanding that the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) retract their statements about the poisons’s toxicity to human health.

    The company demands this even though a peer-reviewed study published in March of 2015 in the respected journal, The Lancet Oncology, conducted a analysis proving that glyphosate was indeed ‘probably carcinogenic.’

    Monsanto’s vice president of global regulatory affairs Philip Miller told Reuters the following in interview:

    “We question the quality of the assessment. The WHO has something to explain.”

    It has already been explained, Mr. Miller. The study states:

    “Glyphosate is a broad-spectrum herbicide, currently with the highest production volumes of all herbicides. It is used in more than 750 different products for agriculture, forestry, urban, and home applications. Its use has increased sharply with the development of genetically modified glyphosate-resistant crop varieties. Glyphosate has been detected in air during spraying, in water, and in food. There WAS limited evidence in humans for the carcinogenicity of glyphosate.

    Glyphosate has been detected in the blood and urine of agricultural workers, indicating absorption. Soil microbes degrade glyphosate to aminomethylphosphoric acid (AMPA). Blood AMPA detection after poisonings suggests intestinal microbial metabolism in humans. Glyphosate and glyphosate formulations induced DNA and chromosomal damage in mammals, and in human and animal cells in vitro. One study reported increases in blood markers of chromosomal damage (micronuclei) in residents of several communities after spraying of glyphosate formulations.”

    In a recent talk attended mostly by students hoping to get decent paying internships in their field, a student asked what the company was doing to negate “bad science” concerning their work.

    Monsanto’s employee, Dr. William “Bill” Moar, who gives talks on Monsanto’s products to reassure everyone that they are safe, perhaps forgot the event was public when he openly revealed that Monsanto had:

    “An entire department” (waving his arm for emphasis) dedicated to “debunking” science which disagreed with theirs.”

MRSA Killed by 1000-Year-Old Herbal Antibiotic: Hospital Superbug MRSA Subdued by British Folk Remedy!

  • MRSA Killed by 1000-Year-Old Herbal Antibiotic: Hospital Superbug MRSA Subdued by British Folk Remedy!
    by Talya Dagan, http://www.naturalnews.com/  
    (NaturalNews) An herbal remedy used to treat styes in the 9th Century has been used successfully to kill MRSA.

    MRSA or methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus 9, is an antibiotic resistant bacteria that kills tens of thousands of people every year. Researchers at the University of Nottingham and Texas Tech University experimented with a lost Anglo-Saxon remedy for eye infections that combined onions, wine, garlic and a cow’s stomach, left to stand in a brass vessel. The resulting mixture killed 90% of MRSA. The recipe was found in an Anglo-Saxon medical book, used over 1000 years ago to treat eye infections.

    Research with 1000-year old remedy for MRSA
    Researchers at the University of Nottingham, lead by researcher Freya Harrison, conducted the study. Anglo-Saxon expert, Christina Lee, translated the recipe text in Bald’s Leechbook, one of the oldest known books on medicine and healing in the British Library. The idea for the research began at an infectious disease meeting at the university, when Lee discussed the remedies in Bald’s book. The team had difficulty finding some of the ingredients. They used modern types of garlic and leeks, hoping they would have a similar medicinal effect. The wine they added was sourced from a historic English winery that had an organic vintage. Because brass vessels cannot be sterilized to modern standards, the researchers used glass bottles with small squares of brass inside. They purchased cow bile salt (bullocks gall) over-the-counter, as it is now used as a nutritional supplement to treat gall bladder disease and to replace gall bladder enzymes after the removal of gall bladders. The researchers discovered that the herbal mixture was “self-sterilizing” after nine days, when they found that the soil bacteria from the leeks and garlic was completely destroyed. Information about the findings were presented at the Society for General Microbiology in Birmingham, England and will be published in the journal Nature.

    Recipe for MRSA killing remedy
    The recipe says to take “cropleek and garlic, both of equal quantities, pound them well together.” The next step is to “take wine and bullocks gall, mix with the leek… and let it stand nine days in the brass vessel.” Brass contains copper, which is known to kill microbes. Individually, the ingredients each have a minimal effect on antibiotic activity. For instance, copper and bile salts are known to kill bacteria, and garlic can stop bacterial action on infected tissue. But researchers found that the ingredients together have a much more powerful effect than any of the ingredients singly. Harrison is quoted as saying, “…we were absolutely blown away by just how effective the combination of ingredients was.”
