Aluminum readily apparent in Alzheimer’s disease brain tissue

Posted by Claire Dwoskin on Jan 31, 2017

Aluminum is neurotoxic, but the average consumer might be forgiven for not knowing about the metal’s health dangers. This is because mainstream websites routinely dismiss questions about whether aluminum is a risk factor for neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD), labeling aluminum’s possible role as either “controversial” or a “myth” without scientific merit. The not-for-profit Alzheimer’s Association, for example, asserts that “studies have failed to confirm any role for aluminum in causing Alzheimer’s.”

The Government Should Do It, But They Don’t: Why Independent Research is Needed

Posted by Claire Dwoskin on Dec 06, 2016

In most cases, drugs are rigorously safety tested, not only to find any potential negative side effects, but also to address any interactions the drug may have with other medications if taken concurrently. Pharmaceutical companies are incentivized to do this. If drugs are inadequately tested or the side effects are too harsh, they can be taken off the market by the FDA. The need to test drugs and put out the best possible product with the fewest possible side effects is further bolstered by healthy competition. This competition results in the availability of multiple kinds of drugs to treat any given condition, essential to customers who may have adverse reactions to certain chemical compounds or ingredients.

WHY WE NEED TO ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT VACCINES

Posted by Claire Dwoskin on Sep 14, 2016

Pharma companies and the media are not kind to those who publicly question the use of vaccines and the practices of their manufactures. Often people are either pounced on by the media, made to look paranoid or crazy, or unceremoniously and unsympathetically dismissed. However, this should not dissuade questioners from making their inquiries public. There are many good reasons why questions should be asked.

Merck Admits Shingles Vaccine Can Cause Eye Damage…and Shingles

Posted by Claire Dwoskin on Aug 30, 2016 | in Shingles

Two important FDA approved changes to the warning label of Merck Pharmaceutical’s shingles vaccine, Zostavax, have been made since the controversial drug was introduced in 2006.  The first was in August 2014, when, in addition to potentially causing chickenpox, another side effect was added: shingles! That’s right. The vaccine that had been – and continues to be -- aggressively marketed to prevent seniors from contracting this excruciating condition was found to actually cause shingles in some individuals.

Are aluminum adjuvants plus Gardasil a uniquely damaging neuroinflammatory cocktail?

Posted by Claire Dwoskin on Jul 28, 2016 | in hpv, autoimmunity

Health authorities and the media relentlessly repeat the mantra that vaccines are unequivocally safe, and many uninformed consumers cling to this mantra like a lifeboat. More often than not, however, consumers know little or nothing about the vaccine safety testing process and assume that vaccine manufacturers and regulatory institutions have exercised due diligence in ensuring that vaccines are as safe as possible.

Molecular Mechanisms in Vaccine-Induced Autoimmunity

Posted by Jake Crosby on Jun 11, 2016 | in vaccines and autoimmunity

The following is a summary of a lecture given by Dr. Darjan Kanduc of the University of Bari, Italy, on the molecular mechanistic functions of vaccine-induced autoimmune disorder:

Since the very beginning of vaccination, people have resisted it due to fear of adverse events. The clash between those resisting vaccination and those promoting vaccination has lasted over 100 years and remains up for debate even today. Nevertheless, adverse health outcomes such as encephalopathy, multiple sclerosis, paralysis, thrombocytopenia, diabetes, sudden infant death syndrome and anaphylaxis, to name just a few, have all come to be associated with vaccination.  A common argument used to dismiss such correlations is "correlation does not equal causation." Just because one event follows another does not mean the following event was caused by the preceding event. So the need to explain possible adverse consequences of vaccination at the molecular level has never been greater.

Link Between Vaccines and African-American Boys Hidden by CDC Says Whistleblower

Posted by Claire Dwoskin on May 09, 2016 | in vaccine safety studies

“I regret that my co-authors and I omitted statistically significant information suggesting that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed.”
