Was "Pharma Exec" Vaccine Expose' a Hoax... or Satire?

Dr. Laibow and I have continued trying to confirm the alleged pharmaceutical company executive who anonymously posted a whistle-blower type expose on the Internet, alleging that a certain company intentionally put mercury in its flu vaccination as the only "active" ingredient. See my previous blog of December 16, 2007.

We originally mentioned this piece because it urges people to go to our web site, www.healthfreedomusa.org - although we had no prior knowledge of the posting and certainly had not given permission to use the URL. We were alerted to the posting by a contact from a Natural Solutions Foundation supporter -- the way we learn about many matters. The piece was not originally posted on any web site we control.

Dr. Laibow questioned the science behind the notion that mercury could have any curative value. [Though we note that at one time mercury preparations appear to have been used in the standard medicine of the day to "treat" infections.] I questioned whether there was enough information in the posting to determine that a company insider had written the post.

A number of Natural Solutions Foundation's "mouse warriors" were concerned too. As always we can rely on our health and freedom supporters to look deeper. They did.

Here is what we've found:

1. WHO does not directly list the company mentioned in the anonymous posting as a flu producer, though, given pharmaceutical industry cross-ownership of entities and patents, we are not sure. Will anyone out there find out if that company owns any flu patents? That research can be done through www.uspto.gov

The WHO list is at:
http://www.who.int/csr/disease/influenza/manulist/en/index.html

2. It appears that company is involved with the following vaccines:

GARDASIL®
[Human Papillomavirus Quadrivalent (Types 6, 11, 16, and 18) Vaccine, Recombinant]
ZOSTAVAX®
(Zoster Vaccine Live)
RotaTeq®
(Rotavirus Vaccine, Live, Oral, Pentavalent)
ProQuad®
[Measles, Mumps, Rubella and Varicella (Oka/Merck) Virus Vaccine Live]
COMVAX®
[Haemophilus b Conjugate (Meningococcal Protein Conjugate) and
Hepatitis B (Recombinant) Vaccine]
M-M-R®II
(Measles, Mumps, and Rubella Virus Vaccine Live)
PedvaxHIB®
[Haemophilus b Conjugate Vaccine (Meningococcal Protein Conjugate)]
PNEUMOVAX® 23
(Pneumococcal Vaccine Polyvalent)
RECOMBIVAX HB®
[Hepatitis B Vaccine (Recombinant)]
VAQTA®
(Hepatitis A Vaccine, Inactivated)
VARIVAX®
[Varicella Virus Vaccine Live (Oka/"M")]


Well that's it. What does this all mean? Maybe we were snookered.

But consider the piece as satire: it worked because there was nothing there that was beyond the realm of possibility. In general, the public does believe the pharmaceutical industry is capable of almost any outrage. This hoax, if that is what it was, just tells us what many of us suspect to be true.

And with the recent Dr. Hilleman interview [if this wasn't hoaxed too!] that seems to show the same company testing vaccines known to contain contaminants, what would shock us as too far-out to be true?

Here is where you can find this fascinating piece:

We are also concerned that there may have been more behind the hoax than just satire. By using the Foundation URL, there may have been an intent to harm NSF and its positive actions for health and freedom. The powerful movement against compulsory vaccination being spearheaded by our efforts may be the real target of the posting. If so, we take it as confirmation we are having an impact.

"Mouse warriors!" Keep on searching the Internet... let us know what's out there.

As of 2006 in Iowa the use of any vaccine containing mercury was banned from any children’s vaccination program. Thimerosal – the source of the mercury in flu vaccines as a preservative since the 1930’s – has already been proven to the major contributing factor involved in the epidemic of autism in children anywhere it has been put to use. Hoax or not the facts remain the same so what the hell else is there to be said for the TOTAL discontinuation of its use, period?!

The facts are these. . . "M" is not an Influenza vaccine manufacturer in the USA. . . Thimerosal, an ethyl (not methyl) mercurial derivative is added in small quantities to inhibit bacterial growth in vaccines which contain killed and or inactivated antigens as the main "active ingredients". Thimerosal is being removed from pediatric vaccines in order to address the numbers of parents who are refusing the vaccines and thus putting their kids at increased risk of infection without effective vaccination. . Thimerosal has NOT been associated with any increases in autism. . Please stop spreading medical rumors that can hurt us all and get back to teaching medicine backed by science.

Dear Anonymous #2, I must respectfully disagree with you that you know the facts here. How do you know what relationship "M" has to vaccines? We don't know what cross patent or other agreements may exist among the pharmaceutical companies.

But, of far more significance, is your unproven assertion that the form of mercury in Thimerosal is not associated with harm to children. Can you cite any source for this that are not tainted by government or pharmaceutical ties?

I further question your assertion that Thimerosal is "being removed" from vaccines.

See this series of letters to and from CDC and FDA about what the "removal" actually means.

From this exchange, I conclude that at least the flu vaccine contains 3 mcg of Thimerosal... (even the allegedly "mercury free" version) and there is no guarantee that similar "trace" amounts are not in other vaccines.

I've checked a bit to see whether the 3 mcg per vaccination is really
just a trace amount.

Here is one comment:

"Most worryingly, exposure levels were not particularly high. Hair
concentrations in the villagers averaged 4 micrograms of mercury per gram of hair. This is just a tenth of the level considered dangerous for adults by the World Health Organization, and not much higher than that found in many countries. In the US and Japan, for instance, the average mercury concentration in hair is around 1 and 2 micrograms per gram respectively."

According to the New York Times on April 5, 2003,

"The Food and Drug Administration has begun using the Environmental
Protection Agency's much lower safe level for mercury in the human
body, an official of the food and drug agency said this week.

"Before the change, the F.D.A. guidelines set a safe level that was four times as high as that of the environmental agency's standard."

This information suggests the FDA may still be allowing dangerous
"trace" levels of mercury in vaccines.

The email exchange with CDC and FDA certainly shows that no one in the federal government really knows. Or cares.
