All About THIMEROSAL – Why the Controversy?…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate  Tim Bolen

Tuesday, August 16th,  2011

This is the eighth article in a series that, for the most part, is about Mark and David Geier, and the team surrounding them’s, effort to remove, finally, Thimerosal (mercury), from medicines – especially vaccines – and the attack on them for their efforts.

As I sifted through the issues, and consequently, the people involved in those issues, I again and again asked the question “Why doesn’t the pharmaceutical industry just make vaccines without Thimerosal?”  I received a lot of different answers in the form, primarily, of hypothesis.  No definite answers.

I suspect that the answers are a combination of things we’ll talk about as we go along.  But, for now, let me point out some history, lest we forget about how mankind’s institutions actually function.

So-called “Medical Science” is really anything but.

I have to laugh when I see one more group setting itself up as the protectors of “Evidenced Based Medicine,” or some other equally impressive sounding nonsense cliché.  You only have to look as far, for instance, as the wanna-be “Czar/God of US Health Care” Stephen Barrett for an example of the self-promoting nobodies, with no qualifications, who proclaim that they, and they alone, are the authority on proper health care.  Frankly, Barrett represents nothing new.  There has always been a “Barrett, in health care.

History shows us, quite clearly, that the “authority” figures in each medical science period, for the most part, were the biggest of fools, the most pompous of idiots, and the worst possible people to direct health care.  For some reason, consistently, scum rises to the surface in our official health care systems.

So, why should we, here in 2011 think things should be any different?  Why should we think that, somehow, health care could, or would, be dominated by thinking individuals who ask the proper questions, and find solutions.  Nah, that’s what we have bureaucracies like the FDA, and the CDC, for.  Society seems to demand that we set up systems (agencies) to do things the dumbest way possible.  Of course, the FDA and the CDC excel at that.  Lawrence J. Peter said it best with his Peter Principle- “in a hierarchy every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence”.

Peter also said  Bureaucracy defends the status quo long past the time when the quo has lost its status.”

The United Nations Invites Mark Geier MD to Lead the Charge Against the Vaccine Industry … 

Opinion by Consumer Advocate  Tim Bolen 

 

Despite a massive campaign the vaccine industry is floundering, very likely near death – and that’s a very good thing.  It may well be that, almost singlehandedly, Mark and David Geier, father and son, will provide the mechanism facilitating it’s demise.

What’s that mechanism?  The Geiers, and a very large team surrounding them, have focused on the vaccine industry’s continued use of Thimerosal (deadly mercury) as a so-called preservative in vaccines.  It has become obvious to parents of millions of American children that vaccines are causing neurological damage (ADD-ADHD, Asthma, Autism, and more),  to their young, and that the vaccine industry, working with its public counterparts:  the Center for Disease Control (CDC), State Public Health units, and schools, is totally, and completely, responsible for this massive damage.  The Geiers say that Thimerosal is the primary culprit.

The Vaccine Industry’s Campaign to Destroy Mark and David Geier is Failing Miserably …

Opinion by Consumer Advocate  Tim Bolen 

 

The pseudo-skeptic weenies that write (and band together to get Google ranking)  about Mark and David Geier would like their readers to believe that dire things are happening to the father and son nemeses of the vaccine industry.  They will tell you, for instance, that more and more States are taking Mark Geier’s medical licenses away – blah, blah, blah…

It is all just a ruse to damage the Geiers.  And, it is not working. Continue reading The Vaccine Industry’s Campaign to Destroy Mark and David Geier is Failing Miserably …

What’s Coming Up in the Geier Case…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate  Tim Bolen 

 

It is surprising to the average American to find out that “the system” we the people put in place to monitor our interests, a good part of the time, simply does not work.  It becomes corrupted by the very people we entrusted.

Parents of Autistic children are the latest group to find out this harsh truth.  They, without doubt, are among the worst of the victims.  They join, for instance, families of Cancer victims, who, themselves, thought our American health care system had value – until one of theirs met the US Cancer Industry – and they watched their loved one die horribly to be followed up by a hospital’s collection agents come after the survivor’s home to pay “the co-pay.” Continue reading What’s Coming Up in the Geier Case…

The Fundamental Issues Coming Up in the Geier Case…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate  Tim Bolen 

 

A hearing will begin in Maryland in front of an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) tomorrow morning (June 17th, 2011) to determine whether, or not, the Maryland Board of Physicians had justifiable cause to immediately suspend Mark Geier MD’s medical license.  The hearing could last up to a week before all of the world-class Geier witnesses could be heard.

About Kathleen Seidel – Would You Leave Your Child in This Woman’s Day Care Center?

Opinion by Consumer Advocate  Tim Bolen 

 

KseidelIn an earlier article The Attack on Mark and David Geier,”  I wrote about the basis for the attack on Mark Geier MD – the original (Formal Complaint) filed against them by a woman named Lisa Randall, the mouthpiece for a national vaccine promo group.

That (Formal Complaint)  was based, totally, on the writings of one Kathleen Seidel who fashions herself as a spokesperson for what she describes as “the neurodiverse.” Seidel’s photo, from a New York Magazine article, is at the right.

Why Was The World-Wide Vaccine industry So Panicked Over The Geiers Addressing the UNEP Meeting in Japan?

Opinion by Consumer Advocate  Tim Bolen 

According to the authoritative source, VaccineEthics.org:

“Virtually all licensed vaccines in the United States are produced by just a handful of pharmaceutical companies: GlaxoSmithKline, Merck, Novartis, Sanofi Pasteur, and Wyeth. These companies account for 80 percent of the worldwide vaccine market.1 With a limited number of manufacturers and many recommended vaccines produced by only a single company, vaccines are susceptible to large fluctuations in supply and availability.2 Continue reading Why Was The World-Wide Vaccine industry So Panicked Over The Geiers Addressing the UNEP Meeting in Japan?

The Attack on Mark and David Geier…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate  Tim Bolen 

 

An attorney friend of mine, Bob Reeves, a mainstay in the mercury in health care wars, called me last April 28th, 2011 and asked me to look into some strange occurrences regarding Mark Geier MD and his son David Geier.  As everyone knows, the Geiers are severe critics of the fact that Thimerosal (mercury – deadly toxic to humans) has NOT, despite false claims and misrepresentations from the vaccine industry, been removed from vaccines.

In Texas (2) – Feds Spit On Barrett’s Claims About Austin’s CARE Clinics…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

Stephen Barrett and his masters and minions are REALLY IN BIG TROUBLE.  They put together a coordinated  attack on cutting-edge Autism testing and treatment – and it failed – and now it is coming back on them.

Proceeding on information provided by Barrett and his sleazy cronies, in July of 2009 Federal investigators, including the FBI and the IRS, acting under a Federal Search Warrant, raided CARE Clinics in Austin, Texas seizing 250 boxes of records, including patient records.  The warrant claimed they were looking for evidence of health fraud and insurance fraud.  The clinic was using the following Protocol.

Critique of the 6 epidemiological studies used to exonerate thimerosal containing vaccines

Brian Hooker PhD

Six epidemiological studies have been used to “refute” the link between thimerosal and autism.  These are:

  1. “Thimerosal and the occurrence of autism: negative ecological evidence from Danish population-based data” by Kreesten Madsen et al. 2003, published in the journal Pediatrics
  2. “Autism and thimerosal-containing vaccines: lack of consistent evidence for an association” by Paul Stehr-Green et al., 2003, published in the American Journal of Preventative Medicine
  3. “Association between thimerosal-containing vaccine and autism” by Anders Hviid et al., 2003, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association
  4. “Safety of thimerosal-containing vaccines: a two-phased study of computerized health maintenance organization databases” by Thomas Verstraeten et al., 2003, published in the journal Pediatrics
  5. Thimerosal exposure in infants and developmental disorders: a retrospective cohort study in the United kingdom does not support a causal association” by Nick Andrews et al., 2004, published in the journal Pediatrics
  6. “Prenatal and infant exposure to thimerosal from vaccines and immunoglobulins and risk of autism” by CS Price et al., 2010, published in the journal Pediatrics

The Plight of the Autism Activists…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

 

I met with a group of the top people in the Autism Awareness Movement yesterday at a meeting hosted by Talk About Curing Autism (TACA) at the Hilton Hotel in Costa Mesa, California, right across the parking lot from TACA’s Main office.

Mark Blaxill, Lisa Ackerman, Dan Olmstead

The speakers for the meeting were none other than Dan Olmsted and Mark Blaxill, authors of the book“The Age of Autism – Mercury, Medicine, and a Man-Made Epidemic.”  Last night I got a signed copy.I met with a group of the top people in the Autism Awareness Movement yesterday at a meeting hosted by Talk About Curing Autism (TACA) at the Hilton Hotel in Costa Mesa, California, right across the parking lot from TACA’s Main office.

Trine “Two Shoes” Tsouderos – Barrett’s Tokyo Rose…

The Desperation Level in the Quackpot camp has reached an all-time high. 

Opinion by Consumer Advocate  Tim Bolen 

The Doctor’s Data v Stephen Barrett Federal Court case is so devastating to them that they are, without doubt, at a point similar to where the Japanese High Command was when the Americans were designing the attack on their mainland towards the end of Word War II.

The Assault on Autistic Children and their Parents…

Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen

Things are about to change in the Autism Wars.  A new report is going to be released next week.  Find out about it below.

Everybody knows that I am a Crisis Management Consultant in the health care industry.  I get called into the cases where the quackbuster misinformation group is operating.  Not so long ago, I was hired to look at a situation in Austin, Texas where a clinic was attacked by goofbag Stephen Barrett  on several fronts – a Texas Medical Board complaint was filed against the doctor (Jesus Caquias MD), all of the health insurance companies stopped paying the clinic for their services, and the FBI raided the clinic last July 2009, claiming in the warrant that they were investigating the clinic for “Insurance Fraud,” and “Health Fraud” violations.

The Mushroom Cloud that Caused Autism

Opinion by: Kenneth Stoller, MD, FAAP with Anne McElroy Dachel

 

In the first article in this series on autism, a mercurial finger was pointed at the high level of mercury children received from their vaccines and the huge upswing in the autism rate. It was noted that the background level of mercury pollution from coal-fire power plants and other sources (such as dental amalgam) was so high that one in every six women in the US has a level of mercury in her body high enough to affect her children’s health.  The cost to society of these affected children amounts to billions of dollars annually, and the ultimate cost of caring for all those disabled will cost trillions. Lastly, the point was made that this isn’t so much about autism as it is about the future of human life on this planet if we don’t stop mercury pollution.

Throwing children into oncoming traffic: The truth about Autism

By: Kenneth Stoller, MD, FAAP with Anne McElroy Dachel

 

I have been a practicing pediatrician for over 20 years. I saw my first child with autism in the early 90’s – before that I had never seen an autistic child, and I never saw an autistic child in all my years at school. The boy was 4 years old and you could see the frustration in his face as he wanted to speak but nothing intelligible would come from his mouth except shrieks of anguish.   Continue reading Throwing children into oncoming traffic: The truth about Autism
