What’s The Difference Between REAL Science & CONSENSUS Science?

By Catherine J. Frompovich

REAL science is exemplified by demonstrable scientific findings like those of Copernicus and Galileo, who basically were called “quacks” by none other than the ruling authority of that time, the Roman Catholic Church, for insisting the Sun was the center of the Universe, not Planet Earth. Each suffered organized oppression by the Church, too.

Galileo’s books were banned from being read! Anything sound familiar in these censoring times?

REAL science also is found in the work of Sir Isaac Newton. An apple never can fall up! Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation.

REAL science also can be found in the dabblings of the colonialist founding father Benjamin Franklin’s flying a kite in a rainstorm! That ‘foolhardy’ exercise led to the invention of the lightning rod and also understanding negative and positive charges.

The Periodic Table of Elements went from a “dream” by Russian chemist Dmitrii Mendeleev to a set table of the properties of individual elements, now complete [at least for the time being] as REAL science.

Real science is the standardized practice of questioning, researching, finding and reporting the “secrets” of how and what “makes things work” without any influences to deviate from those findings.

Consensus science is a relatively new science ‘discipline’ invading all sorts of vested interests, corporations and businesses such as: pharmaceuticals [Examples: Vioxx and neurotoxic vaccines]; chemical companies [Example: Monsanto Roundup® glyphosate]; the microwave industries—anything from military radar to microwave ovens, cell phones, 5G, the Internet of Things (IoT), and medicine [Examples: the War on Cancer, Autism, superbugs from excessive antibiotic prescribing; the opioid epidemic!]

“Consensus,” according to Merriam-Webster, means both “general agreement” and “group solidarity in sentiment and belief.” That sums up the problem. Is this consensus based on solid evidence and sound logic, or social pressure and groupthink? [Like at the CDC/FDA and Big Pharma.]

[….]

When can you doubt a consensus? Your best bet is to look at the process that produced, defends and transmits the supposed consensus.

[Also, consider who is paying for the ‘freight’ to produce the science?]

CONSENSUS science rears its unfettered ugliness in dramatic reversals of real science findings, which had to be sanitized and reformulated with actions taken by the CDC/FDA and Big Pharma.

Here are just a few examples:

June 2000 The Simpsonwood Meeting where CDC epidemiologist Thomas Verstraeten’s findings that certain vaccines DID cause Autism were discussed to change the outcome of Verstraeten’s original real science findings into a consensus science that no vaccine is capable of causing Autism, an elitist epidemiological ‘dogma’ which never can be challenged! The transcript of that clandestine meeting is here: http://fearlessparent.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/Simpsonwood_Transcript_Scan_by_RJK_OCR.pdf

The Poul Thorsen, MD, PhD, / CDC’s Eileen Boyle, PhD, debacle
Dr. Coleen Boyle surfaces again in this featured story about Poul Thorsen, PhD, the MASTER MANIPULATOR who currently is under eleven (11) indictments regarding wire fraud and money laundering, and for ripping off the U.S. CDC to the tune of between One and Two MILLION Dollars.

Thorsen also used Danish demographics he was not permitted to use for his falsified study that the MMR vaccine does not cause autism.

Dr. Boyle was aware of that sticky-wicket issue about not getting Danish permission to use certain demographics, etc., but flew to Denmark to ‘save the deal’. It’s documented in the book, Master Manipulator. https://www.activistpost.com/2019/04/if-truth-be-told-about-cdcs-science-manipulators.html

• Whistleblower William Thompson, PhD, collaborated with, but rejected, the ultimate in CONSENSUS science when he exposed the CDC’s requirement to destroy all science by discarding their findings into a trash can the CDC provided! However, real science found the MMR vaccine actually CAUSED Autism in young black boys under three years of age, which was featured in the documentary VAXXED, From Cover-up to Catastrophe. https://www.activistpost.com/2019/04/if-truth-be-told-about-cdcs-science-manipulators.html

Washington, DC area constitutional attorney Jonathan Emord, who understands the law and how it applies to government officials and agencies, was totally aghast by the remarks he received from an FDA lawyer/attorney. Emord has authored two well argued, erudite books: Global Censorship of Health Informationand The Rise of Tyranny—How Federal Agencies Abuse Power and Pose Risks to Your Life and Liberty, regarding federal bureaucratic legal mischief. Emord says, “FDA refuses to honor five decisions holding its censorship unconstitutional.” [2]

Attorney Emord goes on to say that an attorney in the FDA Chief Counsel’s office regarding a court order to the FDA made this really shocking statement, “Jonathan, the FDA will never abide by the Pearson decision.” [3]

Despite Jonathan’s noting it was a final and binding decision—an order of the court—the FDA attorney said, “That may be so, but I am telling you the FDA will never abide by that court decision, never, ever.” [4]

Emord goes on to tell us, His words pierced to the very core of my being. Here was an agency’s legal officer telling me that the agency was, intentionally, lawless.” [5]
https://www.activistpost.com/2016/10/cdc-flagrant-refusal-of-subpoena-nothing-new-regarding-vaccine-coverup-fraud.html

So, there’s a very real conundrum as to why U.S. federal agencies and corporations can practice CONSENSUS science, but pawn it off as REAL science.

How has this been allowed to happen, especially if there is another agenda, e.g., to change society’s understanding and acceptance of a once hallowed concept for research, which now has been trashed into nothing short of fraudulent science to promote advertising, billions of sales and ultimate obedience to control mechanisms?

Cost of Prescription Drugs Increases 9.5% Annually, Coordinated by Industry


Scripps Research analyzed pharmacy insurance claims from over 35 million Americans, finding ‘continual, marked, annual increases’ of popular brand-name drugs, with price jumps often timed with competitors.

After reviewing tens of millions of insurance claims for the country’s 49 most popular brand-name prescription drugs, a team from Scripps Research Translational Institute found that net prices rose by a median of 76 percent from January 2012 through December 2017—with most products going up once or twice per year.

The substantial price increases were not limited to drugs that recently entered the marketplace, as one might expect, or to those lacking generic equivalents. In addition, the increases often were “highly correlated” with price bumps by competitors.

The researchers concluded that the current rebate system, which incentivizes high list prices for drugs and relies heavily on privately-negotiated rebates to pharmacies, plays a central role driving up costs for consumers. The byzantine and secretive rebate system, they noted, prevents consumers from making informed decisions about purchasing medications.

The study appears in the latest issue of JAMA Network Open.

It’s no secret that health care prices are growing exponentially in the United States, but what has been less clear is the extent to which certain prescription drugs are contributing to that trend—especially when prices are clouded by a complicated rebate system,” says lead author Nathan Wineinger, PhD, director of biostatistics at Scripps Research Translational Institute and assistant professor in Scripps Research’s Department of Integrative Structural and Computational Biology. “By looking at price data for the most popular brand-name drugs, we found striking and consistent price increases occurring at regular intervals, regardless of competition in the marketplace.”

The Scripps Research team obtained the prescription data from a proprietary Blue Cross and Blue Shield data set known as BCBS Axis, which includes commercial insurance claims from more than 35 million Americans covered by independent Blue Cross and Blue Shield companies in the United States.

With a focus on the 49 most popular brand-name drugs with pharmacy claim data available for the entirety of their five-year research window, Wineinger and his team, led by Eric Topol, MD, conducted a high-dimensional data analysis to examine each claim’s total price. This was represented by the total out-of-pocket costs paid by the insured consumer and the amount paid by the insurer.

Researchers determined that prices of top-selling branded prescription drugs increased by a median of 9.5 percent annually, which equates to a doubling in price every seven to eight years. And they found that pairs of brand-name drug competitors that treat similar conditions—such as Humira and Enbrel, both for rheumatoid arthritis—demonstrated highly correlated price increases.

“It’s bad enough to see the relentless increase in drug prices, but this work underscores it is occurring without transparency or accountability,” says Topol, founder and director of Scripps Research Translational Institute and executive vice president of Scripps Research. “It is especially concerning to see drugs in the same class having increases that appear to be coordinated.”

Wineinger explains that a prescription drug’s list price is typically set by the pharmaceutical company that makes the drug, reflecting the payment shared by the insurer and the patient who buys the product at a pharmacy. However, drug companies increasingly offer rebates to organizations called pharmacy benefit managers, or PBMs, which negotiate with pharmacies and insurance companies to determine which drugs are offered as preferred “formulary” options to insurance plan members.

Those rebates are returned to the pharmacy at a later date, paid out by drug companies based on the total sales volume of their products, and cannot be linked directly to any individual purchase. This makes prices especially difficult to track.

Some drug companies have defended list price increases by reasoning that rebates have increased at a similar clip. However, the researchers found that is not the case, and concluded that increases in list prices and a greater reliance on rebates are making drugs more expensive overall.

“Accountability and transparency are essential to developing a better understanding of rising pharmacy costs,” said Maureen Sullivan, chief strategy and innovation officer for the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association (BCBSA). “The Blue Cross Blue Shield Association developed the Alliance for Health Research to engage researchers in collaborative efforts to explore critical health care issues and enable valuable insights that can benefit consumers and the medical community.”

Widespread Contamination of Antibiotics Found in Rivers Around the World

Concentrations of antibiotics found in some of the world’s rivers exceed ‘safe’ levels by up to 300 times, the first ever global study has discovered.

Researchers looked for 14 commonly used antibiotics in rivers in 72 countries across six continents and found antibiotics at 65% of the sites monitored.

Metronidazole, which is used to treat bacterial infections including skin and mouth infections, exceeded safe levels by the biggest margin, with concentrations at one site in Bangladesh 300 times greater than the ‘safe’ level.

In the River Thames and one of its tributaries in London, the researchers detected a maximum total antibiotic concentration of 233 nanograms per litre (ng/l), whereas in Bangladesh the concentration was 170 times higher.

Trimethoprim

The most prevalent antibiotic was trimethoprim, which was detected at 307 of the 711 sites tested and is primarily used to treat urinary tract infections.

The research team compared the monitoring data with ‘safe’ levels recently established by the AMR Industry Alliance which, depending on the antibiotic, range from 20-32,000 ng/l.

Ciproflaxacin, which is used to treat a number of bacterial infections, was the compound that most frequently exceeded safe levels, surpassing the safety threshold in 51 places.

Global problem

The team said that the ‘safe’ limits were most frequently exceeded in Asia and Africa, but sites in Europe, North America and South America also had levels of concern showing that antibiotic contamination was a “global problem.”

Sites where antibiotics exceeded ‘safe’ levels by the greatest degree were in Bangladesh, Kenya, Ghana, Pakistan and Nigeria, while a site in Austria was ranked the highest of the European sites monitored.

The study revealed that high-risk sites were typically adjacent to wastewater treatment systems, waste or sewage dumps and in some areas of political turmoil, including the Israeli and Palestinian border.

Monitoring

The project, which was led by the University of York, was a huge logistical challenge – with 92 sampling kits flown out to partners across the world who were asked to take samples from locations along their local river system.

Samples were then frozen and couriered back to the University of York for testing. Some of the world’s most iconic rivers were sampled, including the Chao Phraya, Danube, Mekong, Seine, Thames, Tiber and Tigris.

Dr John Wilkinson, from the Department of Environment and Geography, who co-ordinated the monitoring work said no other study had been done on this scale.

He said: “Until now, the majority of environmental monitoring work for antibiotics has been done in Europe, N. America and China. Often on only a handful of antibiotics. We know very little about the scale of problem globally.

“Our study helps fill this key knowledge gap with data being generated for countries that had never been monitored before.”

Antimicrobial resistance

Professor Alistair Boxall, Theme Leader of the York Environmental Sustainability Institute, said: “The results are quite eye opening and worrying, demonstrating the widespread contamination of river systems around the world with antibiotic compounds.

“Many scientists and policy makers now recognise the role of the natural environment in the antimicrobial resistance problem. Our data show that antibiotic contamination of rivers could be an important contributor.”

“Solving the problem is going to be a mammoth challenge and will need investment in infrastructure for waste and wastewater treatment, tighter regulation and the cleaning up of already contaminated sites.”

Xenobiotics In Vaccines: The Place To Start REAL Scientific Investigations

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Since vaccine issues are ramping up on both sides of that unique ‘political spectrum’, i.e., legislation introduced almost daily at both state and federal levels, which specifically mandate vaccines while adding penalties for not submitting oneself or one’s children to “poison darts” called vaccinations, AND consumer push-back more evident now than ever, I thought it might be helpful to understanding and to discussing intelligently the topic of toxic vaccines and their ingredients [Xenobiotics] IF there were broader or more comprehensible information, including definitions of just what is in most, if not all, vaccines.

Thanks, and a big hat tip to Eileen Dannemann for sharing recent information wherein I found a most significant file titled “Vaccine Ingredients” published online by WAVE (Worldwide Association For Vaccine Education) embedded wherein vaccine ingredients are listed alphabetically along with their chemical signatures; possible/probable adverse health effects and/or reactions; and even their common industrial uses.

However, I think the list, for as extensive as it is—220 entries, probably is not complete since no recombinant DNA [DNA that has been formed artificially by combining constituents from different organisms (online Dictionary)] per se are listed; no growth mediums, e.g., vaccine growth “broths” per se, as listed in the CDC pink book of Excipient and Media Summary”; nor what probably could be termed “trade secrets ingredients,” which are certain elements that gain or guarantee U.S. patents as “proprietary secrets.” Even FDA and CDC may not know what they are!

WAVE’s alphabetical chemical listing includes the following number of entries:

# 1; A 21; B 6; C 8; D 14; E 4; F 6; G 8; H 13; I 8; K 1;
L 7; M 24; N 4; O 2; P 25; R 3; S 30; T 12; V 20; X 1; Y 2
[It’s a great resource to save and introduce as part of any vaccine discussion.]

To my way of thinking, an in-depth, analytical science discussion—not consensus science as practiced by the CDC, FDA and Big Pharma—must become the basis for considering ANY legislative actions regarding vaccines/vaccinations since they, by their very chemical natures, violate basic human rights, regardless of “herd or community immunity,” an impossibility since diseases have ways of outsmarting and morphing into other organisms.

No one—not even governments, as the Nazis in World War II found out—can get away with using humans as guinea pigs to determine ‘science research data’, even for national security projects! Wasn’t that what the Nuremberg trials after World War II were supposed to have established?

However, I really don’t think so. The United States government, under Project Paperclip, for all intents and purposes, performed and still is carrying on ‘weaponized medicine’ experiments.

Are vaccines a part of that agenda?

Should we and/or Congress ask that question of the U.S. military?

The only way to find out is to hold the U.S. Congress accountable for the 1986 Vaccine Law, plus demand Congress exercise its oversight powers, instead of being cozy friends with Big Pharma’s lobbyists who generously donate and fund pro-vaccine Congress members’ election campaign coffers.

See Database details drugmakers’ contributions to Congress”

“Contributions help keep the door open for company lobbyists,” said Brendan Fischer, Director, Federal Reform Programs at the Campaign Legal Center.

Here’s a website that can give you the contributions any member of Congress received from Pharma: Pharma Cash To Congress. Have fun!

Big Pharma Exec Pushing Opioids Found Guilty of Racketeering

By Arjun Walia

In Brief

  • The Facts: The CEO Insys-Therapeutics and four other executives have been found guilty of racketeering with regards to opioid drugs. They falsified information and bribed many doctors, among other things.
  • Reflect On: When it comes to pharmaceutical products and our federal health regulatory agencies, along with pharmaceutical companies, there is no shortage of deceit and fraud. Why do we continue to trust and use their products?

The term “big pharma” is really making its rounds as more and more people become aware of the fact that the major corporations that manufacture the majority of our “medicine” are actually criminals. The latest example comes from a recent case where a federal jury found multiple top executives of Insys-Therapeutics, a well-known pharmaceutical company that sold a fentanyl-based painkiller (opioids), guilty of racketeering charges and contributing to America’s current opioid epidemic.

Racketeering is a crime committed through extortion or coercion. Intimidation and force are also associated with this charge, and it’s often linked with organized crime, which seems to be a fitting definition for our modern day medical industry. This corporate domination is exactly why, in 2014, the current Editor-in-Chief of The Lancet stated that “the case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue.” (source) It’s why Arnold Symour Relman emphasized that the “medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not only in terms of the practice of medicine, but also in terms of teaching and research.” He thought it was  “disgraceful” that the academic institutions of this country are allowing themselves to be the paid agents of the pharmaceutical industry.” (source)

This isn’t a secret, but it’s quite odd how substances like opioids get approved by our federal health regulatory agencies, which have clearly been compromised as well.

In this case, the jury deliberated for two weeks before issuing a verdict against the company’s founder, John Kapoor, as well as four former executives of the company. They found that not only did these people conspire together on how to drive sales of their drug in several unethical ways, but they bribed doctors to prescribe their product and mislead insurers about patients’ needs for the drug as well.

According to the New York Times:

The verdict against Insys executives is a sign of the accelerating effort to hold pharmaceutical and drug distribution companies and their executives and owners accountable in ways commensurate with the devastation wrought by the prescription opioid crisis. More than 200,000 people have overdosed on such drugs in the past two decades. Federal authorities last month for the first time filed felony drug trafficking charges against a major pharmaceutical distributor, Rochester Drug Cooperative, and two former executives, accusing them of shipping tens of millions of oxycodone pills and fentanyl products to pharmacies that were distributing drugs illegally.

Shortly after Insys was given approval to sell their opioid drug, they found one very significant problem. Their drug, a sprayable form of fentanyl called Subsys, was designed to treat cancer patients with acute pain. However, they soon found that their market of cancer patients wasn’t quite big enough to match their profit goals, so they started falsifying information to make it look like patients had cancer so they could sell more of their drug.

The U.S. Department of Justice document reads:

Several pharmaceutical executives and managers, formerly employed by Insys Therapeutics, Inc., were arrested today on charges that they led a nationwide conspiracy to bribe medical practitioners to unnecessarily prescribe a fentanyl-based pain medication and defraud healthcare insurers.

Pretty wild, isn’t it?

This is great, but how deep does the deception go? How much power do these corporations and their executives hold? Below is a great quote from Robert F. Kennedy Jr. that explains the issue quite well:

The pharmaceutical companies have been able to purchase congress. They’re the largest lobbying entity in Washington D.C.. They have more lobbyists in Washington D.C. than there are congressman and senators combined. They give twice to congress what the next largest lobbying entity is, which is oil and gas… Imagine the power they exercise over both republicans and democrats. They’ve captured them (our regulatory agencies) and turned them into sock puppets. They’ve compromised the press… and they destroy the publications that publish real science. (source)

We don’t really live in a democracy, we are living in a ‘corporatocracy.’ There are many products manufactured by pharmaceutical companies that are highly questionable in light of evidence like the example above. Take, for example, when pharmaceutical companies were not disclosing all information regarding the results of their drug trials. Researchers looked at documents from 70 different double-blind, placebo-controlled trials of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) and serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRI) and found that the full extent of serious harm in clinical study reports went undocumented.  (source)

Another great example comes from documents showing that pharmaceutical companies are deliberately concealing information for the sole purpose of getting us to comply with an “official” vaccination schedule. They show that British health authorities have been engaging in such practice for the last 30 years. The 45-page paper with detailed evidence can be downloaded here: The vaccination policy and the Code of Practice of the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI): are they at odds? by Lucija Tomljenovic, who was part of the Neural Dynamics Research Group, Dept. of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada at the time.

A few years ago, a group of more than a dozen scientists from within the CDC put out a public statement, while remaining anonymous, outlining the big problem of corporate influence and the effect it has on health policy decisions. The documents were referred to as the Spider Papers.  The authors really stressed just how big of a problem this is.

I could go on and on, but the bottom line is that fraud and corruption exist within many powerful pharmaceutical companies and within other major corporations that manufacture the products we use and consume.

This particular case with regards to opioids is a great step in the right direction, but we still have a long way to go.

Just as we would street-level drug dealers, we will hold pharmaceutical executives responsible for fueling the opioid epidemic by recklessly and illegally distributing these drugs, especially while conspiring to commit racketeering along the way,” said Andrew E. Lelling, the United States attorney in Massachusetts who pursued the case. (source)

But we still have to ask important questions, like why did the FDA just approve a painkiller 1,000 times stronger than morphine?

In the CE article ‘Study Reveals Big Pharma Paid Doctors Millions of Dollars To Push Opioids,’ Kalee Brown makes a cogent argument that the opioid epidemic, which is responsible for at least two thirds of the record 72,000 overdose deaths in the U. S. last year, is the product of a carefully crafted strategy that stems from a sinister alignment of  self-interest between Big Pharma, doctors, and the government. This strategy, it would seem, has no limits to its wickedness:

It’s no secret that Big Pharma is a money-making machine. Many even suggest that they design drugs with negative side effects so you remain sick, thus growing their market of sick consumers — a view supported by the reality that doctors get compensated for selling you drugs, not for getting you off of them.

Something to think about…

The Takeaway

Awareness on such issues is important. We live in an age where spreading information like the evidence shared in this article is incredibly difficult, as information is now heavily censored and blocked. Mainstream media controls the perception of the masses, and big pharma is one of multiple corporations who have been able to compromise them. At the end of the day, our ‘medicine’ makers can be corrupt, but there is a solution, and that’s us. There is no doubt about the fact that people are becoming more health conscious, more interested in alternative health, and more likely to seek out better ways to treat/medicate themselves instead of simply believing a doctor who only relies on pharmaceutical drugs without questioning them.

Arjun Walia — I joined the CE team in 2010 shortly after finishing university and have been grateful for the fact that I have been able to do this ever since 🙂 There are many things happening on the planet that don’t resonate with me, and I wanted to do what I could to play a role in creating change. It’s been great making changes in my own life and creating awareness and I look forward to more projects that move beyond awareness and into action and implementation. So stay tuned 🙂 [email protected]

Over Half of Americans Face Hardships Due to Medical Costs

Study: 137 million adults in the United States suffered medical financial hardship in 2015/2017

A new study by American Cancer Society researchers finds medical financial hardship is very common among people in the United States, with more than half reporting problems with affordability, stress, or delaying care because of cost. The study, appearing early online in the Journal of General Internal Medicine, estimates more than 100 million people in the U.S. experience medical financial hardship.

High out-of-pocket spending for medical care is an increasingly critical issue for patients in the United States. It can lead to a depletion of assets and medical debt, as well as distress and worry about household finances. Patients may delay or forgo needed medical care because of cost, jeopardizing benefits of treatment. Illness can also impact the ability to work and reduce productivity, limiting household income, and potentially reducing access to employer-sponsored health insurance in the working age population ages 18-64 years.

While many studies have looked at the financial toll of a cancer diagnosis, less is known about financial hardship in the general population, outside of oncology. For the latest study, researchers led by Robin Yabroff, PhD, assessed the prevalence of material (e.g., problems paying medical bills), psychological (e.g., worry about medical bills) and behavioral (delaying or forgoing medical care because of cost) domains of financial hardship using data from the 2015-2017 National Health Interview Survey.

They found overall, 56.0 % of adults reported at least one domain of medical financial hardship, representing 137.1 million adults in the United States. Compared with those 65 years and older, adults 18 to 64 reported higher material (28.9% vs. 15.3%), psychological (46.9% vs. 28.4%) and behavioral (21.2% vs. 12.7%) medical financial hardship.

Among adults 18 to 64, those with less educational attainment and more health conditions were more likely to report great intensity of hardship. Women were more likely to report multiple domains of hardship than men. And the uninsured were more likely to report multiple domains of hardship (52.8%), compared to those with some public (26.5%) and private insurance (23.2%).

The authors say unless action is taken, the problem is likely to worsen. “With increasing prevalence of multiple chronic conditions; higher patient cost-sharing; and higher costs of healthcare; the risk of hardship will likely increase in the future. Thus, development and evaluation of the comparative effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of strategies to minimize medical financial hardship will be important.”

Duke Univ Finds Possible Link Between Autism and Antidepressant Use During Pregnancy

An international team led by Duke-NUS Medical School has found a potential link between autistic-like behaviour in adult mice and exposure to a common antidepressant in the womb. They also identified a treatment that helped improve memory loss and social interactions, according to the new study published in the journal Molecular Brain.

Antidepressants are commonly prescribed for treating major depression and post-traumatic stress disorder, including in pregnant women. One of the most commonly prescribed antidepressants is fluoxetine, a serotonin reuptake inhibitor. Fluoxetine can cross the placenta and is also detected in breast milk. Little is known about its safety during pregnancy, and not enough studies have been conducted on its long-term effects on offspring.

“Many human association studies have been conducted to investigate connections between antidepressant exposure during pregnancy and children with autism and attention deficit disorder (ADHD). But they have not been able to pinpoint a causal relationship,” stated Associate Professor Hyunsoo Shawn Je, from Duke-NUS’ Neuroscience and Behavioural Disorders (NBD) Programme, a senior and corresponding author of the study.

The team from Duke-NUS and their collaborators in South Korea and Singapore investigated adult mice born to mothers treated with fluoxetine (sold under the brand names Prozac and Sarafem) over a 15-day time period that corresponds to the second trimester in humans, in comparison with those born to mothers given normal saline as controls. They found key differences in behaviour. For example, the unexposed mice normally explored all three arms of a Y-shaped maze over a ten-minute time period and, over the courses of multiple arm entries, mice usually enter a less recently visited arm, while the fluoxetine-exposed ones were less inclined to explore unvisited arm.

In a second experiment, the mice were introduced to two juvenile mice, one after the other. When the second new mouse was introduced, mice that were not exposed to fluoxetine were more likely to only sniff the newly introduced mouse, recognizing that they had already met the first mouse. But the fluoxetine-exposed group sniffed both mice, indicating that they had impaired social novelty recognition.

The team then examined nerve signal transmission in the prefrontal cortex, a part of the brain involved in moderating social behaviour. They found impaired transmission caused by an overactive serotonin receptor. Treating fluoxetine-exposed mice with a compound that blocks the receptor alleviated their behavioural problems and improved their working memory.

The team next wants to examine autistic children born to mothers treated with antidepressants using positron emission tomography (PET) scans, an imaging technique used to observe metabolic processes in the body. If they also show enhanced serotonin receptor activity in the same area of the brain, the team plans to test whether FDA-approved serotonin receptor blockers can normalize their behaviours.

“The consensus among experts is that the rise in the number of people diagnosed with autism around the world is likely due to more awareness and testing rather than an increase in the prevalence of autism,” noted Professor Patrick Casey, Senior Vice Dean for Research at Duke-NUS. “This collaborative study by our researchers offers a compelling case for a link between autism and antidepressant exposure in the womb in an animal model, and a possible mechanism that could potentially be exploited for future therapies.”

For the First Time, Fmr Big Pharma CEO Arrested for Conspiracy for Fostering Opioid Crisis

By Matt Agorist

From the Sackler family — who has made billions from selling opioids to the masses — to the doctors arrested for pushing their pills on unwilling Americans, lawsuits and charges in the opioid crisis abound. However, the companies responsible for distribution of these drugs have largely gone on unscathed, until now.

In a first in the government’s battle against the opioid crisis, the former CEO of one of the largest opioid distribution companies in the country, Rochester Drug Cooperative, and the company itself have been criminally charged with conspiracy.

According to Federal prosecutors, Rochester Drug Cooperative was charged Tuesday with narcotics conspiracy and conspiracy to defraud the United States. The former CEO of the company, Laurence Doud III was charged with narcotics conspiracy and conspiracy to defraud the Drug Enforcement Administration.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York charged Rochester Drug Cooperative (RDC), one of the country’s largest distributors of opioids, with “knowingly and intentionally” violating federal narcotics laws “by distributing dangerous, highly addictive opioids to pharmacy customers that it knew were being sold and used illicitly,” according to a press release, as reported by ABC.

Doud, according to the charges, distributed tens of millions of oxycodone, fentanyl, and other opioids, knowing there was no legitimate need for them.

“Today’s charges should send shock waves throughout the pharmaceutical industry reminding them of their role as gatekeepers of prescription medication,” DEA Special Agent in Charge Ray Donovan said in a statement. “DEA investigates DEA Registrants who divert controlled pharmaceutical medication into the wrong hands for the wrong reason. This historic investigation unveiled a criminal element of denial in RDC’s compliance practices, and holds them accountable for their egregious non-compliance according to the law.”

With all the “shock waves” created by the charges, RDC agreed to non-prosecution consent and will pay a fine of $20 million. As for Doud, who was led away in handcuffs on Tuesday, he faces up to 10 years if convicted.

While many folks might see this as some sort of victory, arresting people to solve a drug problem has never worked. The United States has constantly kidnapped and caged people for selling various substances it deemed illegal, which has created the opposite scenario of the intended outcome.

Instead of deterring drug use, it’s been expanding, getting worse, and drugs have become more available and more dangerous.

This is not to say that companies like RDC shouldn’t bear some of the responsibility for helping to create this opioid crisis. However, what led us into these dark times was trust in a system rife with corruption and ill will.

There are legitimate needs for opioids just like there are legitimate needs for cannabis. But when people are taught their entire lives to blindly trust the medical industry, who clearly chose to deceive them, we end up with problems like we have today.

The government making drugs illegal does absolutely nothing when a person puts blind trust in a medical establishment who then deliberately addicts them to opioids to make billions. Even when it’s illegal, after these people have been duped into their addictions, they still seek it out. This is why we see soccer moms over dosing on dangerous black market fentanyl in front of Hobby Lobby.

The answer lies in legalization and information — not government violence and prohibition. Had these soccer moms and college kids who were duped into believing 100 oxycodone pills, with 5 refills, was needed for a sprained ankle, actually questioned the medical establishment, the likelihood of this opioid crisis ever existing is reduced — and it has nothing to do with whether or not the state says it is legal.

The fact is that some people are freely allowed to market potentially deadly drugs, while others are thrown in a cage for the same activity. This highlights the notion that not all people are equal in the eyes of the state or the law. If you are rich and wear a white jacket and push dangerous drugs on people who don’t need them, you were just fine. However, if you sold a plant, like cannabis, to a willing customer, without the approval of the state, you are a dangerous criminal who needs to be kidnapped, caged, or killed.

It is this utter lack of logic, blind trust in the establishment, and egregious application of state force which has created this opioid crisis in the first place. Continuing to apply these same tactics will only make this problem worse.

Government violence has not and never will be able to stop the sale and use of substances deemed illegal by the state. Granting monopolies on the sale of these drugs to “trusted” sources like the medical industry hasn’t curbed their use either — it’s only created monopolies in the criminal world too. And both the illegal and legal monopolies are thriving thanks to the state.

To be clear, no one here is advocating that the US end the drug war and then start promoting drugs. In fact, if government simply spent a tiny fraction of the money it spends on enforcing the drug war, on educating children, and health and treatment programs instead police action via the drug war, the results would be incredible.

The evidence is there and some states are already considering it. Last year, as TFTP reported, Oregon proposed legislation to decriminalize all drugs, including heroin, cocaine, meth, and ecstasy—because they can see how throwing people in cages for these substances only makes things worse.

Sadly, however, there are far too many people in high places who profit from the prohibition of these substances. The crime created by the drug war is used to justify the need to constantly grow police departments across the country. The drug war has allowed police departments the ability to steal property from otherwise innocent people, making themselves rich in the process.

The illegal drug trade is also used to warrant spending massive amounts of money on people and equipment in the government which do nothing to curb drug use but do everything to oppress citizens. Case in point: the current opioid crisis’ existence in spite of the largest police state in US history.

What’s more, cartels need drugs to be illegal so they can maintain their monopolies on distribution and cultivation to enrich themselves while oppressing citizens around them. The government needs drugs to be illegal so they can rationalize the ever increasing police state.

Big pharma needs drugs to be illegal because many of these illegal drugs are far safer and far more effective than their patented chemical compounds and they hate competition. And the prison industrial complex needs drugs to be illegal so they can enjoy the massive taxpayer-funded windfall they receive from throwing users and small-time dealers in cages.

Unfortunately, neither the left nor the right is able to see this and take proper action. Until we overcome this massive hurdle of state and corporate sponsored prohibition, we can expect to see more soccer moms overdosing in Walmart parking lots and more pharmaceutical companies pushing opioid products.

Indeed, this is already happening. The Sackler family — whose made billions hooking Americans on opioids — already has and FDA-approved cure for the crisis they helped to create, which happens to be manufactured from, you guessed it, more opioids.

“IF Truth Be Told About Vaccines” Anthology HHS-CDC-FDA Propagandize Big Pharma’s Pseudoscience Into Medical ‘Truths’

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Problem>>Reaction>>Solution

Problem

Medical science, based solidly in man-made-patented chemicals, is nothing short of a physiologically inept standard due to its “consensus science” being steeped in the dominant “disease management versus cure” modality using man-made chemicals—petrochemicals, in most cases, plus recently-added nanotechnology, something totally anathema to thousands of years of human (Homo Sapiens) biological evolution!

A rather significant clue to the allopathic paradigm’s healing failure [how long has there been a War on Cancer?] is its inability to factor into its consensus science, thinking and practices, there ARE cumulative effect(s) from all chemicals, including medicines and environmental, in the etiology of disease!

Source: The Truth About Vaccines

“You cannot poison a body into wellness.”

However, that’s not the apparent official position the FDA takes on the current pharmaceutical scourge and scandal coming out of China regarding contaminated blood pressure and heart medications.

The risk associated with abruptly discontinuing the use of these important medicines far outweighs the low risk that our scientists estimate to be associated with continuing the medicine until the patient’s doctor or pharmacist provides a safe replacement or a different treatment option,” the FDA stated.

If allopathic medicine were to acknowledge chemicals as a key precipitating factor – or trigger – in disease morphology, their entire house of cards would come tumbling down since its religious-belief-like educational system and protocols of Rx prescription drugs, chemotherapy, vaccines, biologicals—all man-made and patented were, and are based upon, a ‘monopolistic business plan’ designed by the late John D. Rockefeller (1839 – 1937)[1], whose main objective was to create a global pharmaceutical system of health controls for many reasons. Rockefeller’s prime objective was to eliminate natural medicine being practiced in the USA.

But there was one problem with Rockefeller’s plan for the medical industry: natural/herbal medicines were very popular in America at that time. Almost half the doctors and medical colleges in the U.S. were practicing holistic medicine, using knowledge from Europe and Native Americans.

Rockefeller, the monopolist, had to figure out a way to get rid of his biggest competition. So he used the classic strategy of “problem-reaction-solution.” That is, create a problem and scare people, and then offer a (pre-planned) solution.

This led to the Flexner Report, which gave birth to the modern medicine as we know it.[2]

Rockefeller probably factored into his monopolistic-plan, and thinking, the 1905 Supreme Court Case Jacobson v. Massachusetts[3] which set the standards for vaccination in the USA, and are totally obsolete today since back then in 1905 those who opposed vaccinations were fined only $5, BUT the ingredients (excipients) in vaccines then were ‘relatively harmless’ compared with the neurotoxins and nanoparticles present in today’s mandated vaccines! Thus, the courts must revisit Jacobson and bring it up to date: 1905 elementary immune system science versus 2019 consensus pseudoscience versus factual independent research science denied by vested-interest Big Pharma and CDC/FDA.

As they say, the rest is history. Furthermore, big medicine became the fair-hair child of Big Pharma, a corporate-controlled industry now directing medical schools, the U.S. HHS, CDC, FDA and CONGRESS, a man-made tragedy and criminal activity, in many educated opinions. The result: there’s been a voluminous and precipitous rise in iatrogenic diseases.

Iatrogenic (of a disease or symptoms) induced in a patient by the treatment or comments of a physician. Chambers English Dictionary[4]

Nothing demonstrates the above more clearly than the apparent ideological failure of vaccinology science, which has been delusional from the very beginning starting with Edward Jenner’s hypothesis. See If Truth Be Told About Cowpox & Smallpox Diseases Scientific Differences That Caused A Pharmaceutical Fairytale (March 25, 2019)

That delusion eventually morphed into a legal obstacle for humankind in many ways, i.e., depriving individuals of their right to self-determination in the care of their and their children’s health and bodies, which includes vaccination mandates, forced vaccinations, fines, and Child Protective Services abuses in removing children from parents’ custody and homes.

The fallacy of using aluminum in vaccines started around 1932.

Aluminum was first used in human vaccines in 1932 and was the only adjuvant in use in licensed vaccines for approximately 70 years. Apr 16, 2015[5]

Currently, there are newer adjuvants such as: AS04, MF59 squalene, AS01b, CpG 1018 a synthetic form of DNA.[6]

There’s a huge question about immunology
However, a huge question comes to mind when one considers immunology, a ‘science’ in its infancy days back then in the early 1930s.

When the humoral adaptive response to the aluminum adjuvant was discovered in the early 1900s, one has to wonder if that response was not a very real adverse reaction, since the humoral immune system was activated, not the innate immune system!

Had the rewiring the human immune system begun—inadvertently or intentionally, which enabled vaccine consensus science to plow forward creating the need for booster shots for all diseases. The information below may help you to understand why I make that claim.

The adaptive immune response is largely driven by lymphocytes: T-cells and B-cells. The relative activities of the B-cell and T-cell populations determine the type of immune response generated in response to infection.[7]

Real immunity [innate immunity] is life-long and occurs only after having contracted an infectious disease, which facilitates not having to live a life becoming either a carrier or a ‘progenitor’ of communicable infectious and other vaccine-laden diseases due to vaccine shedding for as long as 30 days post vaccination[8] and post vaccination booster shots!

How can “science-based medicine” be trusted when, in reality, low-level and insufficient populations ‘efficacy and safety’ studies were designed and implemented for a total of 800 children in only 8 remarkable studies to gain approval licensure for the MMR vaccine in 1978?

Furthermore, those studies do not include the ten-year [1990s] fraudulent fudging of efficacy reports for the Mumps active in the MMR vaccine when Merck added rabbit blood antibodies to achieve and meet the 95% efficacy rate required for FDA licensure. See the qui tam whistleblower lawsuit[9] in U.S. Federal Court in Philadelphia.

Thus, there is a specific need for this Anthology to drill down on the fraudulent erroneous propaganda HHS, CDC, FDA and Big Pharma have been promoting GLOBALLY for decades, influencing the World Health Organization (WHO) at the United Nations, foreign governments and local health agencies.

The Selling of Science” or the privatization of knowledge[10]
“The American public would be surprised, and maybe even concerned, if they knew how widespread the practice of self-regulation was.”
… José Solís, PhD

In a quote, which has become part of medical school orientations everywhere, David Sackett, often referred to as the “father of evidence-based medicine,” once famously said:

“Half of what you’ll learn in medical school will be shown to be either dead wrong or out of date within five years of your graduation; the trouble is that nobody can tell you which half–so the most important thing to learn is how to learn on your own.” [11]

—–

For a long time, we were interested by what we believe to be a pervasive problem in modern medicine. Namely, the spread of new technologies and therapies without clear evidence that they work, which are later (and often after considerable delay) followed by contradictions, which, in turn, after yet another delay, is followed by changes in practice and reimbursement.[12]

Reaction

The “reaction” within a normal Hegelian Dialectic ‘paradigm’[13] is not what’s been occurring in the case of vaccine fraud. Since the Autism explosion[14], there’s been an enlightenment, plus outrage, taking place due to the sharing of knowledge and personal child-and-family life-altering adverse health reaction stories by the thousands, including resolute consumer activism regarding First Amendment and humans’ unalienable rights, which health officials may not have expected.

Here’s one example:

Solution

The only solution to this unprecedented medical police state now encompassing the vaccine fraud perpetrated upon U.S. citizens, plus others globally, is for there to be criminal investigations into the documented FRAUDULENT science manipulation that has taken place time after time at the very agencies entrusted with the safe-keeping of consumer health in the USA.

High-ranking federal HHS/CDC/FDA bureaucrats, researchers, epidemiologists, etc. who have perpetuated these ongoing fraudulent practices must be prosecuted legally at law and removed from their cozy perches of authority reflecting Big Pharma’s controls.

It’s what’s referred to as “breach of fiduciary duty”.

“A person acting in a fiduciary capacity is held to a high standard of honesty and full disclosure in regard to the client and must not obtain a personal benefit at the expense of the client.”

Source: USLegal.com

When Congress enacted the 1986 National Vaccine Law[15], was that a benign or deliberate betrayal of U.S. health consumers, equivalent to ‘throwing them under the bus’, which can be considered criminal and collusive activity, plus a breach of fiduciary duty?

Did Congress essentially absolve vaccine manufacturers from any and all product legal liability claims, thus ensuring Congressional constituents that Congress, figuratively, had “thrown voters under the bus”?

That idiomatic phrase, “thrown under the bus,” represents a veiled spirit of sordid betrayal, plus intended, undeniable deliberate harms, since Congress knew about the tremendous number of lawsuits for vaccine product adverse reactions that prompted Big Pharma to seek Congressional “get out of jail free” cards, or not make vaccines. Was that an illegal act by Big Pharma? Collusion? Sherman Antitrust Act and RICO?

According to the 1986 NCVIA, it preempts all design-defect claims against vaccines as unavoidably unsafe, and was affirmed per the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2011 Brusewitz decision.

In essence, the U.S. Congress sacrificed infants, toddlers, teens, adults and seniors unalienable health rights and personal sovereignty to the ‘arm bending’ and ‘no vaccines manufactured threats’ made by vaccine makers, who, at that time, were subject to “a storm of lawsuits,” more than Big Pharma could defend and probably would have put them out of business! Fast forward to what’s happening with Bayer after purchasing Monsanto and the thousands of glyphosate lawsuits.

That lawsuits admission, alone, should have been THE huge red flag something was wrong with vaccines and for Congress to say, “Hell, no! Clean up your act!”

Thus we can see how Congress knowingly colluded with Big Pharma to ensure denial of product liability legal rights to citizens damaged by vaccine. That NCVIA law gave Big Pharma and the CDC/FDA what amounts to “carte blanche” [complete freedom to act as one wishes or thinks best][16] for the roughshod and draconian vaccination mandates since 1989, ever increasing to today’s nightmares!

Needless to say, “all hell’s broken lose” and there’s more fraudulent disinformation about vaccine ‘science’ than probably at any time in history, since the CDC/FDA literally have become the Big Pharma vaccine machine ‘mouthpiece’.

The indignities, harms, adverse reactions and police state activities involving vaccine issues must be addressed immediately. Therefore, here’s a suggestion to be taken seriously by all who care about what’s happening regarding the “Vaccine Police State” wherever you live.

What to do.

Contact the following law authorities and request a Breach of Fiduciary Responsibility be filed against Big Pharma, vaccine manufacturers and Congress.

The Attorney General of the United States
All Attorneys General[17] of each of the 50 U.S. states
All Inspectors General[18] of every health agency at federal and state levels

While you are at it, kindly remind all officials that the Sherman Antitrust Act[19] and the RICO Act[20] [18 U.S. Code CHAPTER 96—RACKETEER INFLUENCED AND CORRUPT ORGANIZATIONS] also are involved.

The Pièce de résistance In Vaccine Data

Nothing addresses the documented “numbers game” in vaccine statistics reporting than the two sets of seemingly opposing data below which ought to demonstrate clearly how vaccine data reporting is skewed and cannot be depended upon for accuracy.

Measles U.S. Cases Chart 1950 to 2019
https://www.statista.com/statistics/186678/new-cases-of-measles-in-the-us-since-1950/

1950 319,124
1960 441,783
1970 47,351
1980 13,506
1990 27,786
1991 9,643
1992 2,237
2018 372
2019 555

Now, compare the above figures with the numbers from CDC: is the average numbers game being played?, or so it seems. Who can prove such statistics?

Which data sets represent fraudulent statistics?

CDC’s report most quoted on measles stats
https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/00056803.htm

Measles.

Measles vaccine was licensed in the United States in 1963. During 1958-1962, an average of 503,282 measles cases and 432 measles-associated deaths were reported each year (9-11). Measles incidence and deaths began to decline in 1965 and continued a 33-year downward trend. This trend was interrupted by epidemics in 1970-1972, 1976-1978, and 1989-1991. In 1998, measles reached a provisional record low number of 89 cases with no measles-associated deaths (13). All cases in 1998 were either documented to be associated with international importations (69 cases) or believed to be associated with international importations (CDC, unpublished data, 1998). In 1994, every dollar spent to purchase measles-containing vaccine saved $10.30 in direct medical costs and $3.20 in indirect societal costs (7)

11. CDC. Reported morbidity and mortality in the United States, 1970. MMWR 1971;19.

Lastly, what’s happening in the country of Ukraine where, as of April 3, 2019, there were close to 70,000 cases of measles?

Are children dropping over like flies? How come there seems to be ‘a lid’ on reporting what’s going on regarding a dramatic spread of measles in the European Union? What role do refugees and immigrants from elsewhere play in the spread of infectious diseases[21] anywhere?

Concerned healthcare consumers must recognize what’s become the “tail wagging the dog”: Big Pharma vaccine geopolitics.

Merck’s Julie Gerberding Wins Industry “Woman Of The Year” Award For Putting Profits Ahead Of Human Health

By Richard Enos

In Brief

  • The Facts: Julie Gerberding, the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association ‘Woman of the Year,’ is a prime example of someone who has gone through the revolving door between government regulatory agencies and the corporations they are supposed to be regulating.
  • Reflect On: It is becoming clear that our authorities in government and business alike are making decisions purely for their own interests, in utter disregard for human safety and well-being. How does this realization play a role in our awakening?

If you are not already clear about how the Corporatocracy that we live in is able to consistently serve their own power and wealth interests at the expense of our heath, well-being and prosperity, then the case of Julie Gerberding should provide some excellent insight. Her career path makes her the poster child for people who want to succeed in the world by embracing the corrupt, deceitful system that is currently in place.

Here is the blueprint: first, become an expert in a very specific area through a good old fashioned Western education. Use the talent and intelligence you have been blessed with to move up the ranks in your chosen industry to gain a position of power within the highest government agency in your field. Work in close collaboration with the corporations you are supposed to be the watchdogs for, and display a particular talent to get away with murder, not only deflecting obvious conflicts of interest and preventing them from materializing into lawsuits, but also demonstrating a highly developed ability–and willingness–to garner public trust around the safety and effectiveness of the products being pushed by the corporations you are colluding with.

Julie Gerberding

Julie Gerberding completed her internship and residency in internal medicine at UCSF, where she also served as Chief Medical Resident before completing her fellowship in Clinical Pharmacology and Infectious Diseases. She earned an M.P.H. degree at the University of California, Berkeley in 1990.

Before becoming CDC Director and ATSDR Administrator, Gerberding was Acting Deputy Director of the National Center for Infectious Diseases (NCID). She joined CDC in 1998 as Director of the Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion, NCID, where she developed CDC’s patient safety initiatives and other programs to prevent infections, antimicrobial resistance, and medical errors in healthcare settings.

But it is perhaps her talent in knowing how to speak with quiet authority, and a persona that people felt they could trust, that not only helped her rise up in the ranks of the government’s regulatory bodies, but also made giants of the corporatocracy take notice and treat her as one of their own. Knowing how to appeal to people emotionally, with eloquence and persuasion, is something you cannot force, nor can you teach it. Some people just have that power. What they decide to do with it is another matter.

Less than a year after she resigned from her CDC post in in January 2009, she was hired as president of Merck’s vaccine division. Now we can look at the low-hanging fruit and remark that during her tenure at the CDC, Merck became the manufacturer of 14 of the 17 vaccines ‘recommended’ for children by the CDC, and 9 of the 10 vaccines ‘recommended’ for adults by the CDC. The conflict of interest here is beyond obvious, and one would be reasonable to assume that this appointment, which garnered over $5 million in stock options alone, amounted to payback for favors done to Merck while head of the CDC.

But I believe Merck saw genuine value in the type of leadership Gerberding brought to the table: a cold and calculating devotion to the bottom line, covered over by a veneer of compassion-like-symptoms and a trustworthy tone of authority. In the pharmaceutical industry, these qualities are gold.

CNN Interview

During our bi-weekly broadcast on CETV, Joe Martino and I had a discussion about the ‘revolving door’ between government regulatory agencies and the corporations they serve. We look at statistics that would literally make your head spin about the hordes of people who have enjoyed the freedom to move from working on one side of the aisle to the other. Typically this pattern serves those willing to ‘play ball’ with corporate powers in their capacity as government regulators, to then be rewarded by the wealthy corporations with cushy jobs and board appointments.

In the case of Julie Gerberding, we dove deep into a CNN interview Gerberding did with Sanjay Gupta while she was at the CDC around the time that the Hannah Poling case was making headlines and getting widespread public attention. (Hannah Poling was the first child to receive money from the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program for her vaccine injury; in essence, the government conceded that vaccines caused Hannah Poling’s autism). Big Pharma seemed to be in need of a reassuring voice directed at the public to prevent a massive exodus of parents from the growing vaccine schedules being lined up for their children.

Joe and I talked about the various techniques Gerberding uses to deftly move the conversation from a very vague ‘admission’ of what the government had conceded to assurances that all caring parents should continue to have their children vaccinated.

By some accounts, Julie Gerberding had a significant impact at this time in preventing a complete loss in confidence in vaccine safety, which would have been a major disaster for the pharmaceutical industry. Makes you wonder why she didn’t win the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association ‘Woman of the Year’ award sooner.

The Takeaway

As difficult as it is for some of us to accept, the belief that those in authority have humanity’s best interests at heart has long run its course. It is an important part of our collective evolution that we realize we cannot count on our elected officials, corporate leaders, bureaucrats or other authority figures to make decisions that are in our best interests, because by and large we are seeing that they are only making decisions in their own interests, for the expansion and consolidation of their power. As individuals we must seek to become sovereigns, and as sovereigns to link together and awaken to our collective power to consciously create the type of world we really want to live in.
