Robert: congrats on your appointment as head of Trump’s vaccine study commission. I think the commission is a terrific idea, and there couldn’t be a better choice than you. I’m sure you’re getting a good laugh about how concerned and “alarmed” the pro-vaxxers are at your appointment. They’re trying to calm the true believers by pointing out all that Trump can’t do in terms of changing vaccine policy.
But Robert, there’s one thing you can do, and it will scare the bejesus out of them: shine a light on the growing body of scientific evidence on the dangers of vaccination which is being ignored, suppressed or altered. The thing they fear most is an open and public debate on these issues.And with your new gig, you can definitely shine a lot of light.
Assuming you commission has subpoena power, you’re sure going to enjoy subpoenaing the CDC whistleblower, William Thompson to testify. And for grins, maybe subpoena his boss who decided not to honor your prior subpoena to have Thompson testify in that civil case you filed. Let him put on the record how that decision was made and why.
After the Thompson related scientific fraud and cover-up mess is cleared up, may I respectfully recommend for your consideration a first scientific topic for the Commission: You know that alot of childhood vaccines contain aluminum as an adjuvant, to make the vaccine more potent or reactive. But are they really as safe as the vaccine manufacturers and the FDA say they are? I’m pretty sure you already know the answer to the question, and that your answer is much different from the U.S. Government’s current answer.
To recap the FDA’s public reassurances: “the risk to infants posed by the total aluminum exposure received from the entire recommended series of childhood vaccines over the first year of life is extremely low, according to a study by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).” http://www.fda.gov/BiologicsBloodVaccines/ScienceResearch/ucm284520.htm.
If that were true, it would be very reassuring.
I think you guys should verify the government’s position, because as you know, there is a growing body of evidence that aluminum is very dangerous to children and adults. Many forward thinking researchers suspect it’s most likely (but certainly not proven) to be a result of defects in the genes and pathways which process heavy metals like aluminum. (Actually, in a criminal case a few years back, I commissioned a white paper which summarized data from two thousand autistic kids and their parents. Lo and behold, the conclusion was just that; some kind of genetic SNP defect/pathway which processes heavy metals was evident in the autistic kids and their tested parent).
Aluminum toxicity is also an issue I’m looking deeply at in the Bob Sears medical board case. I suspect it’s a significant reason why vaccine savvy docs are so concerned about giving so many vaccines to infants and small children over such a short period of time.
You know what’s funny, (or not) or strange, (or not): most of the research on the toxicity of aluminum in vaccines is done outside of the U.S. That’s probably because of the pro-vaxxer’s stranglehold on research, and what some actually think is the manipulation of U.S. research data to hide negative vaccine data. But then you’re about to give the public answers to these questions, big time, especially if you can get the aforedescribed subpoena power.
Just to remind you, the world’s leading authority on the biochemistry of aluminum is Chris Exley in England. He has just co-authored a soon-to-be published article on the Alzheimer’s and aluminum. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0946672X16303777.
He’s also pretty familiar with the aluminum toxicity issue in childhood vaccines and has published his work in another recent article in some journal called Nature, which I think the pro-vaxxers have heard of. http://www.nature.com/articles/srep31578.
Despite the suspicion that there are genetic defects which impair heavy metal processing and excretion in some people, according to Exley, “we have not yet identified and confirmed any specific genetic predisposition which definitely alters the metabolism of aluminum. Perhaps the closest to this that we have is a condition called MMF (macrophagic myofasciitis) which is a condition linked to both aluminum adjuvants and a known genetic mutation.” According to Exley, the guy you have to talk to about MMF is Professor Romain Gherardi, who was the first to recognize the condition. He’s also not in the U.S., but in France.
And for an overview of the research on Vaccines and Autoimmunity of course consult with and bring in Professor Yehuda Shoenfeld from Israel, who as you know recently co-edited the definitive book on the subject called, not surprisingly, Vaccines and Autoimmunity. https://www.amazon.com/Vaccines-Autoimmunity-Yehuda-Shoenfeld/dp/1118663438. But you’ve probably got Yehuda’s number on speed-dial. He’s connected to everyone in the vaccine and autoimmune research field.
Since it’s a government commission, it should be fair and give all sides an opportunity to express their viewpoint. Especially those who believe that every child should receive every single vaccine on the current schedule unless the child meets the specific labeled contraindication, which is basically the pro-vaxxer’s view.
I for one would love to hear Paul Offit testify before your commission and explain his view that all kids could theoretically get 10,000 vaccines without any problems.
I’d also like to hear more about the vaccine makers’ brilliant new marketing idea to create a full vaccination schedule for pregnant women, because sometimes you just can’t get enough of a good thing.
So good luck and Godspeed with this Robert. Time to stir things up in this field, and you be the man to do it.
