A new strategy perpetrated by pharmaceutical manufacturers is slowly permeating society’s consciousness. You may have fallen victim to it without even fully understanding how you’ve been targeted. The strategy revolves around slick product marketing rooted in fear and aimed at you. The trend is direct-to-consumer vaccine marketing. The most recent ad, in an increasing stream of vaccine commercials, involves a warning to grandparents to “understand the dangers your new grandchild faces.” Grandparents viewing the commercial may ask, what dangers? Well, according to vaccine manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), it’s the unvaccinated grandparents themselves.

Vaccines have long been pushed as a benevolent public service in a class high above the trenches of dirty marketing tactics and slick ad campaigns. Yet the truth is vaccines are for-profit products that have enjoyed liability protection by law since the late 1980s making them the backbone of pharmaceutical company profit margins. Judging by GSK’s new ad it appears that the green light has been given for Big Pharma ad departments to conjure up vaccine scare campaigns to propagandize the public with.

GSK’s recent ad is simple using the image of a grandmother’s face, juxtaposed with a wolf’s head, to symbolize the ‘wolf in sheep’s clothing’ danger the grandmother has embodied because she is not vaccinated against pertussis with GSK’s vaccine.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC), under its Truth In Advertising law, states the following:

When consumers see or hear an advertisement, whether it’s on the Internet, radio or television, or anywhere else, federal law says that ad must be truthful, not misleading, and, when appropriate, backed by scientific evidence…The FTC looks especially closely at advertising claims that can affect consumers’ health…

GSK’s commercial has one simple premise surmising it is better to be vaccinated than to not be vaccinated against pertussis. Yet GSK’s ad has holes in it revealing major scientific gaps that can’t be ignored.

A 2014 study done by members of the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal refutes GSK’s vaccine ad claims making it appear to violate FTC’s Truth In Advertising law. The acellular pertussis (aP) vaccine, a component of the DTaP and TDaP vaccines, is the primary strain used in the US for all age groups. The 2014 study states the following:

In this study, we show nonhuman primates vaccinated with aP were protected from severe symptoms but not infection and readily transmitted Bordetella pertussis to contacts.

According to the study, not only did the aP vaccine fail to prevent infection in recipients, it turned the vaccinated into non-symptomatic transmitters of pertussis giving a possible scientific explanation for the resurgence of the illness in pockets of vaccinated populations. The science laid out in the FDA study backs one claim GSK’s ad gets right when it claims “Unfortunately many people who spread it [pertussis] don’t know they have it.” According to the 2014 study findings, the people who “don’t know they have it” may turn out to be the non-symptomatic vaccine recipients not the unvaccinated populations as GSK’s ad would lead the viewer to believe.

From Bloomberg business: HPV Vaccine Seller in China Propels Owners Up Billionaires List

China’s approval for a vaccine used to prevent cervical cancer has propelled two shareholders of the pharmaceutical company marketing the Merck & Co. product up the billionaires’ rankings.

Chongqing Zhifei Biological Products Co.’s more than 60 percent rally this year, spurred by the permission to sell Gardasil 9 in partnership with Merck, has pushed Chairman Jiang Rensheng, 64, up the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. His net worth is estimated at $4.6 billion as of Wednesday and is based on his family’s 60 percent stake, which includes that of Vice General Manager Jiang Lingfeng, his son.

Apart from vaulting the senior Jiang to become the 41st richest in China, and 415 in the world, the jump in the shares has also helped another shareholder: former Vice Chairman Wu Guanjiang. His net worth is estimated at $1.5 billion and is based on the 13.4 percent stake held by him and his wife as of Wednesday, according to regulatory filings. Zhifei didn’t respond to calls and an email seeking comment on Jiang’s and Wu’s wealth and holdings in the company.  Read more here.

Jacob Puliyel Questions the WHO, the Serum Institute of India and The Gates Foundation Over the Covert Use of the Talwar Vaccine in Kenya

Age of Autism has twice covered the Oller report which documented the use of a tetanus vaccine secretly laced with a birth control component hCG which was being used in Kenya. While this has been ruthlessly denied by the Kenyan government and across the world’s media, there is no doubt that this happened, or that the vaccine was manufactured by Serum Institute of India. Current moves to revive the use of the vaccine in India have come under the scrutiny of Dr Jacob Puliyel, Department of Paediatrics, St Stephen’s Hospital, Delhi in India’s Sunday Guardian Live. The new version of the vaccine being trialed in India will be conjugated with E Coli not tetanus but the issues remain the same. The concept of the vaccine is that the hCG which is present in relatively small quantities only becomes active as a birth control agent when combined with a foreign protein, hence the WHO and UNICEF claim that the quantity of hCG is insufficient to cause problems with pregnancy is deliberately misleading – tetanus and E Coli are used to adjuvant the hCG as an active ingredient, and that is part of the design of the product.

Ethical questions surround vaccine to reduce fertility

by Jacob Puliyel

The prestigious journal Nature Medicine, in its February issue reported that the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) is to do a clinical trial of a tetanus toxoid vaccine (TT) laced with a pregnancy hormone, human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). It is to be studied on 120 women in India.

This “vaccine” against pregnancy was developed by Dr G.P. Talwar in 1972. The idea is to produce antibodies to the pregnancy hormone, such that the women would not be able to carry a normal pregnancy. Women who were pregnant would abort and those not pregnant would be rendered infertile. The report is indeed disturbing. A few months earlier an article entitled “HCG Found in WHO Tetanus Vaccine in Kenya Raises Concern in the Developing World” was published by Oller and colleagues in the Open Access Library Journal.

The Oller report described young women in Kenya who were vaccinated with this “Talwar vaccine” on the pretext of preventing maternal and neonatal (baby) tetanus. Many of the samples of the tetanus vaccine that tested positive for hCG was sourced from the Serum Institute of India.

The vaccine programme was promoted by the WHO and the Kenyan government, funded by the Gates Foundation. Mothers-to-be were encouraged to take the vaccine to prevent tetanus in their unborn babies, without being told that the vaccine would prevent the baby from ever being born. The Oller report highlights some interesting aspects of the campaign. The vaccines used in the campaign were not stored locally, but were distributed directly from Nairobi and the vaccines were guarded by the police. Every used vaccine vial was returned under police escort to Nairobi at considerable expense. It was advised that the vaccine is taken five times at six monthly intervals. This is unlike the tetanus toxoid schedule anywhere in the world and is exactly the schedule recommended for the “Talwar vaccine”. WHO publications apparently describe a long-range purpose to reduce population growth in unstable “less developed countries” and they are working on a more potent anti-fertility vaccine, using recombinant DNA.

Is MMR Vaccine a Fraud or Does It Just Wear Off Quickly?

Original here:  https://www.thevaccinereaction.org/2018/05/is-mmr-vaccine-a-fraud-or-does-it-just-wear-off-quickly/

by Joseph Mercola, DO

In 2010, two Merck virologists filed a federal lawsuit against their former employer, alleging the vaccine maker lied about the effectiveness of the mumps portion of its MMR II vaccine.

In 1986, public health officials stated that MMR vaccination rates for kindergarten children were in excess of 95 percent and that one dose of live attenuated measles, mumps and rubella vaccine (MMR) would eliminate the three common childhood diseases in the U.S.1 In 1989, parents were informed that a single dose of MMR vaccine was inadequate for providing lifelong protection against these common childhood diseases and that children would need to get a second dose of MMR.2

Today, 95 percent of children entering kindergarten3 have received two doses of MMR vaccine, as have 92 percent of school children ages 13 to 17 years.4

In some states, the MMR vaccination rate is approaching 100 percent.5 Despite achieving the sought-for MMR vaccination rate for more than three decades, which theoretically should ensure “herd immunity,” outbreaks of both measles and mumps keep occurring—and many of those who get sick are children and adults who have been vaccinated.

Mumps is Making a Comeback

As recently reported by Science Magazine6 and The New York Times,7 mumps is making a strong comeback among college students, with hundreds of outbreaks occurring on U.S. campuses over the past two decades. Last summer, the Minnesota Department of Health reported its largest mumps outbreak since 2006.8

According to recent research,9 the reason for this appears to be, at least in part, waning vaccine-acquired immunity. In other words, protection from the MMR vaccine is wearing off quicker than expected. Science Magazine writes:

[Epidemiologist Joseph Lewnard and immunologist Yonatan Grad, both at the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health in Boston] compiled data from six previous studies of the vaccine’s effectiveness carried out in the United States and Europe between 1967 and 2008. (None of the studies is part of a current fraudulent claims lawsuit against U.S. vaccine maker Merck.)

Based on these data, they estimated that immunity to mumps lasts about 16 to 50 years, or about 27 years on average. That means as much as 25 percent of a vaccinated population can lose immunity within eight years, and half can lose it within 19 years … The team then built mathematical models using the same data to assess how declining immunity might affect the susceptibility of the U.S. population.

When they ran the models, their findings lined up with reality. For instance, the model predicted that 10- to 19-year-olds who had received a single dose of the mumps vaccine at 12 months were more susceptible to infection; indeed, outbreaks in those age groups happened in the late 1980s and early 1990s. In 1989, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention added a second dose of the vaccine at age 4 to 6 years. Outbreaks then shifted to the college age group.

A Third Booster Shot May Be Added

According to public health officials, the proposed solution to boosting vaccine-acquired mumps immunity in the U.S. population is to add a third booster shot of MMR vaccine at age 18.

Unfortunately, adding a booster for mumps means giving an additional dose of measles and rubella vaccines as well, as the three are only available in the combined MMR vaccine or combined MMR-varicella (MMRV) vaccine. At present, a third MMR shot is routinely recommended during active mumps outbreaks, even though there is no solid proof that this strategy is effective.
