Merck whistleblowers, Stephen Krahling and Joan Wlochowski, accused their former employer of falsified findings to promote their MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine. They claim Merck "falsely verified that each manufacturing lot of mumps vaccine would be as effective as identified in the labeling; falsely certified the accuracy of applications filed with the FDA; falsely certified compliance with the terms of the CDC purchase contract; and mislabeled, misbranded and falsely certified its mumps vaccine, among other violations." This was in the interest of maintaining their monopoly in the US and other markets. A class-action lawsuit on this will follow.
I personally would opt for a healthy immune system, good diet and a healthy lifestyle rather than injecting yourself with who-the-hell-knows-what to fill the pockets of the medical industrial complex. Merck went so far as to make statements to the Wall Street Journal that the department of justice absolved them of guilt.
The article ties in how the whooping cough outbreak in California happened despite vaccinations and in response those who opted out of the vaccine were blamed for it. "A scare campaign was launched in the California by Pharma-funded medical trade associations, state health officials, and national media. ... [A] study showed that 81 percent of 2010 California whooping cough cases in people under the age of 18 occurred in those who were fully up to date on the whooping cough vaccine." Thus the vaccine provides little if any immunity! It may decrease the severity of symptoms.
The article ultimately leads to CDC whistleblowers who came out against the initial study that launched production in the first place! They "omitted statistically significant information" and that "the final study protocol was not followed."
The article ends on the alleged autism-vaccine connection. An interview with the CDC Director of Immunization Safety Dr. Frank DeStefano leads to denial of a causal link but admits vaccines can "trigger" autism. Also noteworthy is the potential link of autism and cancer to fetal tissue used in DNA, "According to the authors, autism rates rose sharply each time a vaccine manufactured with human fetal cell lines containing fetal and retroviral contaminants were released."
Well have a nice day, if you read this it can be your vaccine against pharmaceutical bullshit. I cannot help adding a clip of Lewis Black ranting about the small pox vaccines.
