Truth about vaccines clouded by fraud

The Oconee Enterprise, June 23, 2016:
Dr. David Lewis

In 1998, British scientists reported in The Lancet that, in a group of twelve children with autism, most suffered from an intestinal condition called colitis. Most had also developed autism within a matter of days after suffering seizures and other severe reactions to MMR vaccine. Scientists have since confirmed the connection between autism and colitis; but whether vaccines are ever to blame is hotly debated.

As a microbiologist researching the role pollution may sometimes play in triggering autism, I often speak at meetings attended by parents of children with autism. Even today, a number of hands will go up if you ask such groups whether any of their children began to develop normally, then suddenly developed autism immediately following a severe reaction to vaccines.

In 2010, Lancet’s editors retracted the 1998 report after the UK General Medical Council revoked one of the British authors’ medical licenses over ethical misconduct. That same year, the British Medical Journal, which is sponsored by manufacturers of MMR vaccine, began publishing a series of articles by a freelance reporter named Brian Deer. He claimed that the Lancet report contained fabricated data, but that the original microscope slides and other proof were missing. Since then, the CDC has published a number of studies concluding that vaccines do not cause autism.

Was that the end of the story? No way. This is the story that never ends. The High Court of England dismissed all of the ethical misconduct charges. Then Dr. Poul Thorsen, one of the scientists involved in the CDC studies, was indicted by the U.S. Department of Justice for fraud. Then another CDC scientist, Dr. William Thompson, admitted that he and his coauthors covered up data linking MMR vaccine to autism.

In the middle of all of this, I asked one of the Lancet authors what happened to the original data, which Deer claimed went missing? To my surprise, he showed me photographs of the original slides and data sheets, and let me submit them to the British Medical Journal for publication. One of the journal’s own experts, who reviewed the documents Deer had claimed were lost, told a reporter at Nature that there is no evidence of fraud.

In 2004, a congressional investigation found that the CDC had destroyed data showing that high levels of lead in Washington, DC’s drinking water were poisoning children. Virginia Tech professor Marc Edwards, who discovered the high lead levels in DC’s drinking water discovered that, after the CDC’s lead data “strangely disappeared,” the CDC issued a new falsified report that was crafted “at the highest levels of the CDC.” With the CDC destroying evidence, and scientific journals and their reporters lying about the evidence, why should we trust them instead of growing numbers of parents with first-hand accounts of what happened to their children?

On the topic of the vaccines you may DECIEVE MILLIONS AND billions of people but this one person is not deceive truth is coming in 2018 billions if not trillions dollars scam I hope you can bpay back American USA Tax money back you scammers GOD sees everything

Amy Bauer

It certainly is interesting that there were 13 scientists on this peer-reviewed paper. Why was only one vilified? There is definitely more to the story than what we hear in the highly biased media. The first question to be asked here is: who controls the flow of information? What are we NOT being told? And once you look into the matter for yourself, the picture changes dramatically. So the next question becomes, why? What is the agenda of those who own and control the flow of information? Doesn’t take a genius to figure that one out. With billions of dollars at stake, what does the life and career of one medical professional matter? If the credentials of Professor John Walker Smith were restored, why not Wakefield? Again, doesn’t take a genius.


You may DECIEVE MILLIONS AND billions of people the vaccine scandal but this woman is not deceive truth is coming GOD SEES EVERYTHING!! 2018 BILLION BILLIONS DOLLARS SCAM I HOPE AND PRAY THAT ALL THESE COMPANIES START PAYING USA TAXES MONEY BACK make America great again


How can anyone deny that there is a link between vaccines and autism, when there are children who were healthy and developing normally, who got an MMR shot, and regressed into autism, sometimes immediately? My children were always healthy, but they had only a few shots, and I waited until they were 2 or 3 years old. Children in the U.S. get more vaccines than in any other country, and the U.S. has one of the highest rates of infant death.

Americans are stupid and they pay for it with the lives of their children. Sorry it will not end. They are too intellectually lazy to comprehend the sad truth.

Modern vaccines are directly responsible for eradicating some of the most deadly communicable diseases of the 20th century.(Diphtheria, Measles, Rubella, Polio, Smallpox, etc.) That is an indisputable scientific fact. Outbreaks ceased to exist, simply because vaccinations allowed the pathogen to remain isolated even in a highly populated area, where it could run its course without infecting the masses, therefore making fatalities negligible when compared to the rather large number of yearly deaths recorded before vaccinating the general public. Now I’m not siding with Big Pharm on the matter, I’m just saying that we need more research data, compiled with complete unbiased transparency and ultimately the full disclosure of ALL possible adverse reactions or side effects that were found for each vaccine.

Clark, thank you for this comment. Vaccines are amazing. We need them as a society. HOW we develop, study, and govern their administration is critical to their safety and effectiveness. Freedom, not 100% vaccination, is part of what ensures we have effective vaccines.


Oh… so let me get this straight… you wish to be FREE to INFECT my kids? You are a selfish moron. All you anti-Vaxers should be dropped on your own little island to contract and spread your stupidity, lies and viral infections amongst only yourselves. You’ll get the “freedom” you so desperately scream about and the rest of society can be nice and safe


How could your kids get infected if they are vaccinated? Unless in fact the vaccines don’t work. In that case, why do you feel so strongly about your view?


I vote for making the manufacturers legally responsible *liable for their products in the event of injury or death! (some actual safety tests done outside of their controlled labs would be great)


what part of misleading stats and cover ups didn’t you understand?
the eradication of diseases you mentioned are not due to vaccines alone. There are multiple factors involved such as cleaner drinking water…

you obviously believe what you read before what the human being next you actually says


There will always be a percentage of error. It’s like riding in a car in traffic or flying in an airplane. 40,000 deaths in the U.S. in 2018. So don’t be getting in no car and going anywhere because the odds of a fatal accident are far greater than from getting vaccination.
Did you know that automobile accidents are the leading cause of death among healthy U.S. citizens? Drivers who sustain fatal injuries in a single year are measured in the tens of thousands, and nearly 2.5 million are seriously hurt or permanently disabled. Statistics show that these numbers have been rising in recent years despite improvements in automobile safety features. The United States has more than 220 million licensed drivers, and they risk their lives every time they enter an automobile as driver or passenger.
