#69 - DECEPTION AND LIES- WHAT YOU PROBABLY DON'T KNOW ABOUT THE MMR VACCINE
I was very lucky to recently watch a screening of the movie Vaxxed- from Cover up to Catastrophe.
Here's a little bit about it... In 2014, biologist Dr. Brian Hooker received a call from a Senior Scientist at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) who led the agency’s 2004 study on the Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine and its link to autism. The scientist, Dr. William Thompson, confessed that the CDC had omitted crucial data in their final report that revealed a causal relationship between the MMR vaccine and autism. Over several months, Dr. Hooker records the phone calls made to him by Dr. Thompson who provides the confidential data destroyed by his colleagues at the CDC. Dr. Hooker enlists the help of Dr. Andrew Wakefield, the British gastroenterologist falsely accused of starting the anti-vax movement when he first reported in 1998 that the MMR vaccine may cause autism. Wakefield directs this documentary examining the evidence behind an appalling cover-up committed by the government agency charged with protecting the health of American citizens. Interviews with pharmaceutical insiders, doctors, politicians, and parents of vaccine-injured children reveal an alarming deception that has contributed to the skyrocketing increase of autism and potentially the most catastrophic epidemic of our lifetime.
Now I know Vaccination is a controversial topic, and I have a very open, broad- minded view on it. I'm confident most of my patients know I aim to stay on top of the research and approach health in a balanced way. I have had serious doubts about the safety of certain vaccines such as the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) for a long time, and after watching the movie Vaxxed, my doubts have well and truly been confirmed. A senior scientist from the CDC (Centre for Disease Control) in the US, has come out to expose that a study on the MMR vaccine and autism had its data manipulated and even some of it destroyed, to downplay the link between this vaccine and autism - a shocking and devastating result for the many children adversely affected. Doctors rely on the data from the CDC to guide their medical decisions, and if they have lied about this issue, how many other medical research papers have been manipulated, altered, or destroyed?
I strongly urge you to see this movie which is difficult to do as it has caused an enormous backlash from the powers that be, so it is not showing at your local cinema! For more info on screenings you can inquire at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is a trailer of the movie on YouTube.
My message is to be informed and always seek the truth especially in matters regarding our babies and children - their health can be seriously and irreversibly damaged by our decisions - a massive burden for parents/ carers to carry, but one that we must do with the confidence of accurate and honest medical advice.
