Lancet Slammed: Vaccine Science Poisoned
by Special Interests in PharmaMedia
The editors of Medical
Veritas journal have condemned The
Lancet's retraction of the controversial study by Dr. Andrew
Wakefield, charging editor Richard Horton with pandering to special
interests in a conspiracy to defraud the public about the risks
In 1998, The Lancet published the contested study linking autism
and intestinal problems to the risky MMR triple virus vaccine.
Yesterday, following the British General Medical Council's decision
that Dr. Wakefield had been "dishonest," The Lancet's
editor retracted the article saying the Council's report made
it "utterly clear, without any ambiguity at all, that the
statements in the paper were utterly false."
In a letter to the Los
Angeles Times, Dr. Gilbert Ross, medical director of the
pro-vaccine industry American Council on Science and Health, wrote,
"The retraction . . . comes far too late. Even now, Horton
fails to accept responsibility for the human toll he engendered
by publishing the Wakefield 'study.'. . ."
"On the contrary," wrote Dr. Leonard Horowitz, Editor-in-Chief
of Medical Veritas. "Dr. Horton's delay is best explained
by his aversion to self incrimination and conspiring to cover-up
iatrogenocide--the medical mass murder of innocent people for
The Winter, 2010 issue of Medical Veritas, evidenced gross conflicting
interests undermining the The Lancet's integrity. Following the
publication of Dr. Wakefield's controversial study, Reed-Elsevier-ChoicePoint
mergers occurred. The mega-company formed has nearly monopolized
the medical scientific publishing industry. Previous to this,
The Lancet editors protested the "damaging" of medicine
and health science by pharmaceutical companies.
"Now it is obvious Dr. Horton's company has been grossly
contaminated by special interests as biased as Dr. Ross's 'PharmaCouncil',"
Dr. Horowitz said.
Reed-Elsevier-ChoicePoint, it turns out, is directed by Chief
Executive Officer, Sir Crispin Davis, according to a Reuter's
News Service promotion for GlaxoSmithKline recently published.
According to Forbes,
Sir Davis was knighted by the Queen of England for his "service
to the information industry." He has served as a Non-Executive
Independent Director of GlaxoSmithKline, PLC since 2003. Sir Davis
spent his early career with Procter & Gamble.
Reuter's News Service, key to the British "information industry,"
is directed by Editor-in-Chief, Thomas H. Glocer, who serves on
the Board of Directors of Merck & Co., which admittedly paid
Reed-Elsevier to publish pseudo-scientific articles and fraudulent
medical journals, including the Australasian
Journal of Bone and Joint Medicine. According to court records,
and the New
York Times, the Merck-sponsored
publication for doctors in Australia came to light during litigation
pain medication that caused, conservatively, more than 27,785
deaths according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
The Lancet editor blamed
the FDA for faulty oversight for the VIOXX killings, but failed
to cite his own parent company's complicity in the iatrogenocide.
Dr. Horton wrote, "Without more vigilant drug regulation
in the future, doctors will continue to be misled and patients'
lives will continue to be endangered. "
So with zero confidence in The Lancet, Dr. Horton, those paying
his salary, and those criticizing him for his actions, Medical
Veritas editors are inviting Dr. Wakefield to re-publish his controversial
paper in their next issue.
"Many of our editors have experienced slander and demeaning
remarks by mainstream healthcare authorities and the media, Dr.
Gary S. Goldman, the Associate Editor of Medical Veritas, wrote
to Dr. Wakefield. "Your numerous peer-reviewed journal articles
testify to your valuable contribution to the medical and health
fields, and your stand against the opponents to scientific reason
and common sense is heroic."
Medical Veritas, wherein Dr. Wakefield published a 2006 follow-up
study to his 1998 report in The Lancet, is "one of the few
remaining journals that places emphasis on the health interests
of individuals rather than pursue profits."
"The current climate of vaccine science is very controversial,"
said Eileen Dannemann. In recent months, the Director of the National
Coalition of Organized Women collected and analyzed data of
spontaneous abortions following injections of H1N1 vaccines into
"The information that people are given by vaccine authorities,
and through the media," Dannemann insists, "is inconsistent
with the safety studies conducted that lack placebo controls and
long-term surveillance of adverse reactions to these vaccinations."
Contrary to the PharmaMedia's propaganda character-assassinating
Dr. Wakefield, he is not the only scientist concerned about vaccinations
causing deadly side effects. In recent days, a new study from
Center for Modeling Optimal Outcomes in New Jersey published,
"If it hadn't been for so many parents insisting that vaccines
were responsible for the condition [of autism], we might never
have found the fact that the stabilizer in MMR, and a few other
vaccines, is hydrolyzed gelatin--a substance that is approximately
21% glycine. It appears that, based on readily verifiable science,
the use of that form of glycine triggers an imbalance between
the amino acid neurotransmitters responsible for the absorption
rate of certain classes of cells throughout the body. It is that
wide-spread disruption that apparently results in the systemic
problems that encompass the mind and the body characterized in
today's 'classic' autism."
