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.
More, the vaccine industry, part of the also floundering Big Pharma complex, has used its gargantuan financial war chest to outright buy the US Congress, by lobbying to get a law passed removing all vaccine producers from any legal liability.
Wait a minute? Didn’t the vaccine industry claim that they took Thimerosal out of childhood vaccines? Yes, they claimed that – and they lied. They actually did just a show removal, taking Thimerosal out of only 3.48 percent of those vaccines – and all of that was in the US, attempting to mollify, and mislead, American parents of damaged children. About 104 million childhood vaccines are administered, worldwide, each year, and only about 4 million have a preservative other than Thimerosal.
More, despite massive cover-up by the vaccine industry, it is becoming obvious throughout the world that the childhood vaccine schedule is the worst disaster foisted on the human population in Earth’s history. After the US government attacked Iraq, and Afghanistan, we forced, at gunpoint, Iraqi and Afghan children into the vaccine program – and the results were predictable. All of those vaccines were jam-packed with mercury.
Think of this – ONE vaccine contains 25 times the amount of mercury allowable in the average human body. The childhood vaccine schedule requires 38 vaccines during the first year of life – 950 times the safe levels for mercury in the average human body – and these are children – much smaller than the “average” human.
But, the Geiers, being scientists, looked at the vaccine problem as a whole. They continuously asked the questions “Why, knowing how dangerous mercury is, does the vaccine industry use Thimerosal at all? Why don’t the government agencies responsible to protect our population, who have to know how dangerous this situation is, do something about this issue?” In the US the Geiers have been under constant attack for even asking these questions – a situation that, for instance, parents of Autistic children are accustomed to also.
But last January, 2011, in Chiba, Japan, at the United Nations Environment Programme – Intergovernmental Negotiating Committee to prepare a global legally binding instrument on Mercury (INC2)., the Geiers, and Lisa Sykes, President of the Coalition for Mercury-Free Drugs (CoMeD), sent this group of top world scientists, formally representing 150 countries, into orbit over the Thimerosal in vaccine issue. Within weeks the attack on the Geiers began in their home State of Maryland.
But, that coordinated attack is faltering – and its intent to discredit the Geiers on the world scene is falling on deaf ears. The Geiers have been openly re-invited to present once again in front of this group – this time in Africa…
Most important is that the United Nations committee did NOT buy into the attempt to discredit the Geiers. They invited them, once again, to present their case against the vaccine industry in detail, this time at the treaty negotiation in Nairobi, Kenya from October 31 through November 4, 2011, You can read the UN letter to the Geiers by clicking here.
And, this is not the only place the industry is losing the battle…
Big Pharma, itself, is floundering.
Most of the patents on those drugs you see advertised on TV run out this year (2011, or next year (2012). A major source for the funds to buy our US Congress, and our television networks, is drying up fast. The vaccine division has been counted on to try and slow the financial blood flow – but it won’t happen now.
There has not been a plethora of new drugs invented. Big Pharma has been counting on two research areas – neither of which panned out – and, in fact, has caused them major financial losses for failed research:
(1) Embryonic Stem Cell therapies – totally rejected by the American Public after the Catholic Church issued an emphatic “NO”, and supported the much less costly “Adult Stem Cell” scientific concepts. The drug industry would have been able to patent Embryonic therapies – but “Adult” systems are natural, and are not patentable. World Research has embraced “Adult” approaches.
(2) DNA manipulation therapies – have turned out to be a horror story. The idea promoted by certain fringe scientists that claimed they could invent a vaccine that when injected in people under thirty could alleviate aging issues – changing their DNA structure so that these people “would no longer be defective, and would not get health issues like Alzheimer’s, etc.” has fallen apart in the laboratories. All the mice die…
I Hate it When I Can’t Tell You the Whole Story...
I’m sworn to secrecy about stuff happening in the Maryland Medical Board attack against Mark and David Geier. Maryland has strict rules about secrecy of the proceedings. In their mind, for instance, once they issue an Accusation or an Order, the Defendants MAY NOT publish their Response to the charges. The case, as I said it would, has walked slowly through the procedure described under Maryland law. An Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) has heard the case and, by law, must make a recommendation to the Maryland Medical Board. We are all waiting for that.
Mark my words – the Maryland Medical Board had no cause to proceed against Mark Geier MD, nor David Geier. It was all a ruse. You can imagine what is going on behind the scenes. My guess is that the ALJ has already issued a secret Draft Decision, totally rebuking the Medical Board, the staff of the board, and the AG prosecutor who handled the case, and it is being circulated through the Governor’s Office, the Attorney General’s office, the staffs of the Maryland Senate, and Assembly Health Sub-Committees. Expect something like a Special Prosecutor to be assigned, taking the situation to a State of Maryland Grand Jury.
If I could tell you the details of why I think this, or something like it, will happen – you’d jump for joy – unless of course, you’re part of the vaccine industry, a quackbuster, a self-styled Skeptic (pseudo-skeptic), or Kathleen Seidel.
