Believing vaccines are safe because Big Pharma says so is just as stupid as believing cigarettes are safe because Big Tobacco says so


“Vaccines don’t cause autism, complications extremely rare — study,” and also states that:

“There is no evidence that immunizing vaccinations cause autism while any complications arising from their administration to children are extremely rare, new analysis comprised of 67 research studies has discovered.”

“There is strong evidence that MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella) vaccine is not associated with autism,”the study’s results said.

RT cites a “Pediatrics: Official Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics” study titled, “Safety of Vaccines Used for Routine Immunization of US Children: A Systematic Review,” which claims:

“We found evidence that some vaccines are associated with serious AEs [adverse effects]; however, these events are extremely rare and must be weighed against the protective benefits that vaccines provide.”

The report’s conclusions are hardly convincing. But what’s more uncomfortable, is the enormous conflict of interest from which the report itself was written. The authors consist of Margaret A. Maglione, Lopamudra Das, Laura Raaen, Alexandria Smith, Ramya Chari, Sydne Newberry, Roberta Shanman, Tanja Perry, and Courtney Gidengil, all the corporate-funded think tank, RAND Corporation.

While the report itself was funded by the US government, the RAND Corporation from which its authors were drawn is funded by the corporations (.

Big-pharma sponsors of RAND consist of GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Merck – that latter of which is noted by the US Center for Illness Control (CDC) specifically as the producer of the MMR vaccine.

Merck has likewise straight and openly funded other research studies put out by RAND (here and here). RAND’s other big-pharma sponsor, GSK, has actually been recently exposed amid a worldwide multi-billion dollar paying off scandal where it was settling doctors to back and distribute their items.

With Pediatrics’ report exposed as – at least – a reckless, dishonest workout in research study, and at worst, corporate propaganda masquerading as a clinical paper, those thinking about whether to have vaccines made by deceitful pharmaceutical monopolies injected into their bodies, have an added incentive to hold off and look for options.

While the science of vaccinations might be sound, the corporations that have actually monopolized their production and distribution are demonstrably unethical and criminal. The argument is not always whether the process of vaccinating readies or bad, however why criminal business have actually monopolized that process and what can be done to stop them. Just like everything else business monopolies do, there is a prejudice behind the drive to whitewash and promote big-pharma’s vaccines – a program that might go beyond mere earnings and demands extra examination. If commentators wish to assign blame upon anyone for creating public mistrust in vaccines, it should be upon big-pharma itself.
