Cancer has touched my life in significant and painful ways; I lost both my mother and sister to cancer. I have seen, in my lifetime, the cancer rate grow from dismal to dire. When my mother was first diagnosed, 45 years ago, she was the only person we knew who was struggling with the disease. It was because of her, and her doggedness and commitment to staying alive, that I became interested in holistic health. It was she—and her remarkable journey of healing, wherein she reversed her terminal diagnosis of breast cancer (metastasized into bone cancer), moved out of her wheelchair to playing tennis again—that made me a convert to the holistic approach to healing all disease. (Side note: After my father died—killed by modern medicine—my mother simply lost her will to live, and her cancer came roaring back. As a psychoanalyst, I understand the deep connection between thoughts and feelings and the body.)
As I thought more about Burton’s request, I realized that cancer and vaccines are closely aligned. Although one is a disease, and the other a treatment, nevertheless they share certain properties. They are both embraced by orthodox medicine; they are both heavy money makers; they both cause bodily harm, even death.
I was born in 1946, and grew up in New Orleans. I still see the scar on the inside of my ankle where I was injected repeatedly with the smallpox vaccination. And I still have vivid memory of being handed a sugar cube, and told that it would protect me from getting polio. All the children, in New Orleans and all over the country, were given the polio vaccine. What I didn't know at the time was the sordid history of the polio vaccine, and its connection to New Orleans.
When I was growing up, Alton Ochsner was a household name for all New Orleanians. The Ochsner Clinic that he founded was one of the most prestigious medical centers in the country. Ochsner himself was, among other distinctions, a president of the America Cancer Society for his dedication in promoting the notion that smoking causes cancer. There was no man who was more well-respected in New Orleans that Alton Ochsner (in spite of his right-wing political fervor).
In the early 1950’s, polio had become a serious health issue in all of America. During that time, 33,000 Americans a year contracted polio, and medical research was scrambling to find a solution. It appeared that a significant step forward was taken when researchers found they could use the kidneys of rhesus monkeys as the culture for growing a vaccine. In 1955, Jonas Salk developed a polio vaccine, and immediately five laboratories started making the vaccine.
Shortly before the vaccine was due to be released to the public, it was sent to Dr. Bernice Eddy at NIH to safe-test. Her finding was shocking; she found that the vaccine itself could cause paralysis. (This connection between a vaccine causing the very disease it is meant to prevent is not so unusual. La Casa had as a client for many years a Lyme patient who contracted Lyme Disease from a Lyme vaccine she was given in Germany.)
Ochsner had holdings in one of the laboratories producing the vaccine, and refused to believe that the vaccine was dangerous. In a display of deliberate and unsurpassed arrogance, he inoculated his own grandchildren to demonstrate the safety of the vaccine. Both of his grandchildren contracted polio. His granddaughter recovered from her paralysis but tragically, his grandson died.
In spite of clear indications of the dangers of the vaccine, medical science ignored the evidence, and heralded perhaps the biggest medical fiasco to date. Dr. Eddy quietly continued her research. In 1963, she announced her next findings, which were much more dire than her previous research. She confirmed that both the original Salk vaccine, and the Sabin vaccine that followed, were contaminated with a cancer-causing virus. Both Salk and Sabin initially resisted the idea of telling the American public about these findings. But to Salk's credit, finally, in 1976, he testified that his vaccine was the "principal if not sole cause" of all polio cases in the US. The vaccine continued to be distributed until 2000.
For nine years, from 1954 to 1963, almost every dose of polio vaccine administered throughout the world—whether through inoculations, or orally the sugar cube—was contaminated with a cancer-causing simian virus, named SV40. Recipients of the tainted vaccine included half of the American population.
Eddy predicted that it would take thirty years for the cancers to develop. Statistics, unfortunately proved her prediction to be accurate. Beginning in 1985 (1955+30), cancers of five of the body's soft tissues—the skin, breast, prostate, lymphoma and lung—began a dramatic increase. Should we assume coincidence, or prescience of the good doc, Bernice Eddy? In 2001, resercher Neil Miller reported on 62 peer-reviewed studies confirming the presence of SV40 in a variety of human tissues and carcinomas*.
Because of the imminent threat of forced vaccinations, I have decided to give Burton, once again, the forum of Musings to let my readers know his well-researched thoughts on the subject.
First, a few factoids dispelling myths about vaccines:
- The idea that unvaccinated children pose a threat to vaccinated children is, on its face, a tautological contradiction, since those who are vaccinated are supposed to be protected.
- Vaccines can be carriers for delivering other materials unbeknownst to those receiving the vaccines. Unfortunately, this is not science fiction. It has already happened. It has been documented that the hormone HCG that causes miscarriages in women who later become pregnant was put into vaccines in both the Philippines and Kenya. The altered vaccine was used as a secret instrument of birth-prevention and population control.
- Besides what is deliberately hidden in vaccines, there is also the issue of accidental viruses (as happened with the polio vaccine). One of my psychoanalytic patients is a nurse at Sloan-Kettering, and mentioned in a session that S-K was veering away from giving blood transfusions. I asked why, and she explained that they are having problems getting good results. I asked about the screening process for the blood they use. She said that they can’t screen for everything, and that there are pathogens now that are as of yet undiscovered.
- While it appears (as Dr. Eddy predicted) that vaccines have caused an epidemic of soft tissue cancers in my generation, the danger for children now is different. Today, the destructive impact of vaccines doesn’t take 30 years to become manifest. This is the research that Burton Goldberg has done, following the creation of a worldwide epidemic of yet another disease: autism.
- Vaccine ingredients include the following: heavy metals, pus from sores of diseased animals, horse serum, calf serum, faecal matter, foetal cells, urine, macerated cancer cells, sweepings from diseased children, formaldehyde (a carcinogen used in embalming fluid), phenol (a carcinogen capable of causing paralysis, convulsions, coma, necrosis and gangrene), lactalbumin hydrolysate (an emulsifier), aluminium phosphate (an aluminium salt that is corrosive to tissues), retro-virus SV-40 (a contaminant virus in some polio vaccines), antibiotics (e.g., neomycin tm) that lead to antibiotic resistance, chick embryo (as a growth medium for the virus), sodium phosphate (a buffering salt), and foreign animal tissues containing genetic material (DNA/RNA) from the growth medium. Vaccines are also contaminated with mycoplasma, bacteria, monkey viruses and various adjuvants. Heavy metals include thiomersal (mercury) as a preservative and aluminium as an adjuvant. Mercury and aluminium have each been proved to damage the brain and nervous system. In some cases, thiomersal has been replaced by another neurotoxin known as 2PE. Vaccines also contain monosodium glutamate (MSG), sorbitol, and gelatine.
- The notion of administering vaccines is based on a long-discredited theory that stimulation of antibodies in the human body equals protection from disease. This theory has not only failed to be proved, but has been repeatedly disproved. Stimulation of antibodies does not equal immunity, neither temporary nor permanent. The presence of antibodies is merely one sign of exposure to a disease; this immune response is a small aspect of what makes up the entire immune system. All children are born with underdeveloped and immature immune systems. The value of breast-feeding is that the colostrum that is the first mother's milk confers onto the new-born support in the early development of the immune system. Infants today receive as many as 25 vaccines by the age of 13 months. There is no doubt this practice disrupts and can even destroy the development of their immune systems, and that effect can last throughout the rest of their lives.
And now, to give Burton Goldberg his voice.
Should You Vaccinate Your Child?
Read The Once-Secret Documents Of The CDC, And Then You Decide!
By Burton Goldberg, "The Voice of Alternative Medicine"
What's worse is that we now have the perfect storm. When a child is exposed to vaccines and also eats food that contains the pesticide glyphosate—the toxic chemical used in Roundup® and on genetically modified (GM) foods—that child's risk for health problems, including autism, is amplified. I'll talk more about this connection later in this article and share with you the research of Stephanie Seneff, PhD, a respected MIT scientist who has discovered exactly how GM foods contribute to autism.
In 1950, autism was unheard of and by 1970 only 1 in 10,000 U.S. children were afflicted with autism. Right now 1 in 42 boys develop autism. And 1 in 68 children (including girls) suffer from the condition. Dr. Seneff predicted that by 2025, half of all children will be autistic if trends and current practice continue. Half! Yet we still don't hear the pediatricians demanding to know what causes autism.
Most doctors won't tell you the truth about vaccines. Either they don’t read all the research or they know what the research shows but are afraid of losing their license—and I don't blame them. After all, doctors are busy. It’s faster and professionally safer for them to rely on “medical industry standards.” If they contradict the official line, they risk their livelihoods, and, at the very least look like outsiders in the eyes of their peers.
Perhaps they're afraid of going to jail or being put out of business by our government or the medical boards, which are controlled by corporations that profit from your illnesses.
The result? Your health is paying the price of many doctors' lack of due diligence and lack of courage. Your kids are getting autism. You and your family members are suffering from supposedly incurable diseases that could be cured or prevented, if not for corporate greed and government corruption.
Because of this corruption, we're going the way of ancient Roman citizens, who accidentally poisoned themselves by drinking water from lead pipes or wine from lead-lined vessels. We're headed the way of Rome—unless you take action.
I can tell you the truth because I'm not a medical practitioner with any economic stake in this issue. In other words, I have nothing to fear. More importantly, I have studied alternative medicine for 45 years, have an honorary doctorate in humanities from Capital University, and through my publications and public appearances over many years I have become known as "The Voice of Alternative Medicine." I'm also 88 years old. I’m not worried about myself. I'm worried about the future of my kids, grandkids, and great grandkids—and beyond. That’s why I’m still doing this. That’s why I’ve reviewed all the research. And to relieve any suspicions you might have about why I'm doing this, let me assure you again I have no financial interest in what happens.
In this article, I'm going to give you the proof that most vaccines are toxic. And throughout the course of this series of articles, I'm going to show you why, for the sake of our kids and loved ones we need to start a health revolution. Just as in the time of Thomas Paine during the American Revolution, we have reached another American Crisis. This time, we don't need to break free from England's rule. We need to break free from the greed and corruption that has tainted our government and the health care industry. And I'm going to show you how to do exactly that.
It's time to take a stand, before it's too late. It's time to understand that agencies of the government like the FDA and the CDC care more about the bottom line of corporations than they do about whether your kids get autism.
It's a Lie That Vaccines are Perfectly Safe and Don't Cause Autism and ADHD—and I'm Going to Prove It To You.
The results of Dr. Verstraeten's study were alarming. Kids exposed to vaccines were 660% more likely to develop autism and 700% more likely to develop attention-deficit disorder (ADD) compared to kids who had not received vaccines.
These results shouldn't have come as a surprise to anyone. After all, as Congressman Dan Burton pointed out in a video I released called "Greed," the insert that came with Eli Lilly's vaccines warned that side effects of exposure could include mild to severe mental retardation and mild to severe motor coordination impairment. Sounds a lot like the symptoms of autism doesn't it? (You'll find the link and password to my Greed video later in this article).
The following year, on June 7-8, 2000, Dr. Verstraeten presented his findings at a now infamous conference at Simpsonwood Retreat Center in Georgia. There were 51 scientists and doctors at the conference, including five representatives from vaccine manufacturers such as Merck and Smith Kline Beecham.
The CDC wanted this conference to remain secret. It was closed to the public and the media. It wasn't until 2004, after some parents and Russell Blaylock, M.D., a board certified neurosurgeon, filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit to get their hands on the transcript of the Simpsonwood meeting that the public was allowed to know what was talked about at the two-day event.
In the words of Dr. Blaylock, the document showing what went on at Simpsonwood "should blow the lid off the cover-up being engineered by the pharmaceutical companies in conjunction with powerful government agencies."
After reading the report twice and carefully analyzing it, Dr. Blaylock noted, "I can see why they didn't want any outsiders to see it. It is a bombshell."
Download Dr. Blaylock's full exposé of the Simpsonwood conference here. His summary of the conference is a good place to start since the transcript is 238 pages.
As Dr. Blaylock noted in his exposé of Simpsonwood, after Dr. Verstraeten presented his findings, everyone at the meeting was concerned. But they didn't seem concerned about the damage the vaccines caused to the children.
David Kirby, journalist, author, and New York Times contributor offered this account of what happened: "There was consensus at the meeting that this data meant something. There was an absolute acknowledgement that something was going on that needed more research, that this information needed to be managed very, very carefully. Their biggest concern was not possible damage being inflicted on American children and children overseas but the immunization program, the fiscal health of the pharmaceutical industry, the personal reputations of the people in question, and spending years of time and billions of dollars defending against litigation. One of the quotes was 'wait until the lawyers get a hold of this.'"
For example, a representative of the World Health Organization, John Clements, seemed to care more about the scientific research getting in the way of vaccinating children than he did about health risks to vaccinated children that the research revealed.
Clements said at Simpsonwood, "But there is now the point at which the research results have to be handled, and even if this committee decides that there is no association and that information gets out, the work has been done and through the freedom of information that will be taken by others and will be used in other ways beyond the control of this group. And I am very concerned about that as I suspect that it is already too late to do anything regardless of any professional body and what they say…My mandate as I sit here in this group is to make sure at the end of the day that 100,000,000 are immunized with DTP, Hepatitis B and if possible Hib, this year, next year and for many years to come, and that will have to be with thimerosal containing vaccines unless a miracle occurs and an alternative is found quickly and is tried and found to be safe."
Read Dr. Blaylock's exposé and you can decide for yourself whose interests they were protecting. And the Simpsonwood transcript itself will show you why many of the experts attending Simpsonwood weren't willing to put their own children at risk.
For example, one of the doctors attending the conference, Robert Johnson, M.D., an immunologist at the University of Colorado, told conference attendees, "Forgive the personal comment, but I got called out at eight o'clock for an emergency call and my daughter-in-law delivered a son by C-section. Our first male in the line of the next generation and I do not want that grandson to get a Thimerosal containing vaccine until we know better what is going on. It will probably take a long time. In the meantime, and I know there are probably implications for this internationally, but in the meanwhile I think I want that grandson to only be given Thimerosal-free vaccines."
Read the full transcript of the Simpsonwood meeting here. It will open up your eyes to how the CDC and other public health officials put the health and reputations of the drug companies over your child's health.
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. wrote an excellent article originally published in Rolling Stone in which he discussed Simpsonwood and questioned the safety of thimerosal. I highly recommend you read it here.
