Like the power morcellator used to break up uterine fibroids in the '90s, could vaccines be lacking proper research and causing more harm than good?
In 1993, the FDA approved a surgical device called a power morcellator, enabling surgeons to remove uterine fibroids using a laparoscope to avoid major surgery. The device is used to break up, or morcellate, a fibroid into fragments inside a woman's abdomen, before a surgeon can extract them using a vacuum.
However, the FDA is now warning surgeons not to use the device to perform such procedures because of recent concerns indicating that it can spread hidden uterine cancer.
The safety of grinding up fibroids, which are generally benign, and further exposing those irregular cells to open blood vessels where they could circulate elsewhere in the body, does appear to be somewhat questionable. However, one has to wonder how this device could have ever been approved in the first place, especially when you take into consideration the recent black box safety warnings that have been recently issued by the FDA.
By 1991, it was generally accepted medical knowledge that the cutting of a cancer in the body could result in the spread of cancer cells to other parts of the body, and it was for this reason that physicians typically removed cancerous tissues or tumors intact to prevent them from spreading.
However, this did not prompt a recommendation for pre-marketing safety studies for morcellators at the time because when the FDA approved a medical device, the FDA was still following a 1976 process that systematically approved devices based on similarity to other devices, instead of evaluating each individual device based on safety. Postmarketing surveillance policies enabled companies to sell their products while collecting the data, "to monitor medical devices and radiological products for continued safety and effectiveness after they are in use."
Although the FDA's policy was amended in 2014, for many women already injured, it was too little, too late.
We the public were being used as guinea pigs to enable the companies manufacturing the devices to remain free from having to spend their resources on safety testing. Not only did the companies profit from testing on us, as the cost of the device or product was reimbursed through health care plans, but they also profited a second time when the device made us ill, requiring further treatment.
As a result of this policy, some women who underwent this procedure are at increased risk of aggressive metastatic cancers that spread to the kidneys, spleen and sometimes the spine, lung, liver and ovaries. However, if appropriately designed, animal safety studies could have been conducted first, and these tragic outcomes might have been prevented.
In other words, uterine fibroids that were treated using power morcellators transformed a manageable condition into a catastrophic one. This tragic error demonstrates how flawed medical science and FDA policies, which parallel the same problems with vaccines.
Vaccination over the years has resulted in irreparable harm to an unknown number of children and adults. Vaccines are given to healthy children with the goal of keeping them well, but health authorities have failed to take into consideration the impact they could have on peoples' overall health.
Whether intentional or not, vaccine science has been designed to minimize the evidence of harm, while maximizing the appearance of efficacy. Few consumers realize how vaccine studies are manipulated through the use of active placebos and surrogate markers for efficacy.
Starting with vaccine efficacy, vaccine clinical trials measure antibody response to vaccines as a measure of efficacy. It is well known among scientists that there is no clear correlation between antibody levels and prevention of disease, yet the presence of antibodies is accepted as a surrogate marker that the vaccine works.
A recent example of this flawed assumption is the Disneyland measles outbreak. The majority of people who contracted measles were vaccinated. Additionally, measles breakouts have been reported in schools in which 99 percent of kids were vaccinated. Being vaccinated does not mean an individual cannot be a silent carrier of the disease and spread it, as a recent study on pertussis demonstrated.
This leads many of us to believe that because widespread studies of postmarketing efficacy are not conducted, no one knows exactly how effective vaccines really are.
In the case of vaccine safety, the FDA sanctions the use of "active placebos" that allow a vaccine to be compared to an existing FDA approved vaccine, or to an injection of aluminum, rather than an inert placebo. Given that true inert placebo-controlled studies of existing vaccines or aluminum adjuvants used as controls in vaccine studies have never been conducted, those receiving vaccines are also guinea pigs, just like the women whose fibroids were morcellated.
In the case of vaccines, the adverse reaction data is not systematically and comprehensively collected. Parents are usually told that their child's illness, disability or death after a vaccine is a "coincidence" and doctors are not required by law to report reactions, obscuring the true rate of vaccine related health conditions.
Parents do not have any way of knowing know the true risk or benefit of any vaccine because the research has never been conducted with proper or scientifically valid controls, never evaluated for genetic and biological changes or risk factors, and is not conducted for a period sufficient to detect delayed responses or effects that only become evident as developmental milestones are not reached.
In June 2015, a report titled Shocking Report from Medical Insiders published by nsnbc international sent shock waves around the medical communities when it announced that the majority of medical research being published is unreliable. The report described how many major pharmaceutical companies were falsifying and manipulating their tests on the health, safety and effectiveness of various drugs and vaccines. The report pointed out that many of the samples being used were too small to be statistically meaningful.
In a shocking admission, Dr. Richard Horton stated that:
"Much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness."
Reporters stated that drug industry-sponsored studies that Dr. Horton had referred to in his statement developed commercial drugs and vaccines to supposedly help people, train medical staff, educate medical students and more.
Dr. Horton was not alone in speaking out about his views and opinions. According to nsnbc international, physician and former longtime editor-in-chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ), Dr. Marcia Angell, also spoke out about her fears. She stated that:
"It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine."
Reading through the endless, daunting facts revealed in this article makes one wonder how the FDA will agree to review and amend their risk assessment policies for surgical devices when there is the slightest risk of them leading to cancer, and yet continue to systematically ignore the rising number of vaccine injuries being reported to them on a daily basis.
Why Are Vaccine Injuries Being Ignored?
It appears that, despite the hundreds of thousands of reports of adverse reactions after vaccination, including deaths, vaccines have not received rigorous scrutiny, unlike power morcellators. Is this difference due to the fact that device manufacturers can be sued in court for causing harm but vaccine manufacturers cannot? Laws that allow patients to file lawsuits when they are injured or harmed help in identifying and removing flawed medical products more quickly from the market due to the risk of financial loss.
Unlike makers of devices such as power morcellators, vaccine maker profits are protected by laws that shield them from liability for vaccine injuries. Compounding this legal inequity are unenforced and inadequate policies requiring the assessment and collection of data on vaccine reactions. What makes matters even worse is the fact that, according to Dr. Suzanne Humphries, MD, a board certified nephrologist, doctors are not even taught in medical school how to recognize adverse reactions to vaccines.
Because some doctors would not know a vaccine reaction if they saw one, they are not penalized for failing to it, and there is no systematic process for collecting the data. Therefore, how can health authorities assert that vaccines are rigorously tested and proven safe and effective?
Infants and children, the most vulnerable among us, are suffering from a rising rate of chronic health conditions that were unknown or virtually unheard of in previous generations. Health authorities say that the causes are unknown, and claim we may never know why so many diseases appeared and began to rise simultaneously all over the country and the world. The inflection point or beginning of the sharp rise in chronic illness coincided with the tripling of the recommended pediatric vaccine schedule. That in itself is not causal proof, but it is evidence that more research is warranted.
For every medical procedure and drug, consumers are recommended to seek independent sources of information about safety and efficacy that are not influenced by those who stand to profit. In the case of vaccines, undisclosed conflicts of interest, a flawed scientific review process and laws that protect corporate profits have impacted the information provided to consumers. Vaccine package inserts, which are available online, provide a more complete safety profile of vaccines, but they fail to provide information on the safety of vaccine combinations that are recommended on the CDC's pediatric schedule or on the schedule as a whole.
Mandated Vaccines Coming Your Way
Alarmingly, legislation is being enacted and proposed all over the USA. This legislation will allow corrupt health agencies to have more power over our health. Pharmaceutical controlled health authorities and legislatures have granted themselves the authority to make decisions for the masses. This has been done without any consideration or accountability for any of the harm that may be incurred.
California, with one-sixth's of the nation's population, has adopted similar restrictive vaccine exemption policies as West Virginia and Mississippi, the two least healthy states in the nation.
Soon, adults will be required to get the same mandated vaccinations and health care as their children and their employment will be used as the cudgel to enforce the new, unnecessary and harmful vaccine policies aimed to take away the rights to make informed decisions, from all American citizens. These recommendations come at a time when the US is already the most highly vaccinated nation on the planet, with the highest autism rates, and the highest infant mortality rates among developed nations.
Barbara Loe Fisher of NVIC.org has been warning the public for years that this day was coming. It has arrived. We are living in a medical dictatorship, and this dictatorship is looking out for profit and power. Do you want to be making your own decisions, about your family's health or do you want to allow the politicians who are taking money from drug companies, to decide what is best for you and your family?
Organizations such as Children's Medical Safety Research Institute (CMSRI) have been founded to address causal factors of chronic health conditions, and vaccine ingredients and environmental toxins such as aluminum have emerged as concerns following comprehensive reviews of the scientific literature.
CMSRI conducts independent research, which is submitted for peer review and publication in scientific journals. CMSRI relies on public support and 100 percent of all donations are applied directly to research. Please consider a generous donation to their efforts to discover underlying causal factors of chronic disease and disability such as Alzheimer's disease, allergies, asthma, autism, ADD/ADHD, and autoimmune disorders.
