Richard Gale and Dr. J. Anthony Morris on the Flu Vaccine

Each time I think of a blogging subject I end up writing about something serious. Oh when will the day come when I can write on light-hearted topics? I just can't keep my findings to myself. I feel like I would be betraying my readers and contributing to the number of people who are unaware of our government toying with our health.

There are some things to consider about the so called Swine Flu before you even
think about getting vaccinated against it. No, this is not something your doctor will discuss with you. In fact, it is likely you will know next to nothing about what is injected into your bloodstream unless you do your own research. I am not telling you not to get vaccinated, I am telling you to educate yourself before you make such a bold decision about your health. I am no doctor and this article is not to be taken as medical advice!

Richard Gale is a former Senior Research Analyst in the biotechnology and genomic industries. He and Dr. Gary Null write about the widespread media tactic of highlighting the 'scarcity' of the vaccine to frighten people into getting vaccinated as soon as a dose is available for them. The fact remains though, swine flu statistics are not facts, they are guesstimates. Since August nobody tests for swine flu anymore, so even if you just have some fever and sniffles you'll be counted into the swine flu bunch! How is that for sound science? The CDC itself only notes estimates on their website, and no matter how accurate a projection model they make - they cannot tell you anything true, as they themselves state that the flu is unpredictable.

Are you familiar with Dr. J. Anthony Morris, the former Chief Vaccine Control Officer and research virologist, US FDA? He is not the first to loose his government job because he put his conscience above profits. I'll quote him:
"There is no evidence that any influenza vaccine thus far developed is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza. The producers of these vaccines know that they are worthless, but they go on selling them, anyway."

"There is a great deal of evidence to prove that immunization of children does more harm than good."
What we do know though is that in the case of Britain, the health authorities' original worst-case scenario -- which said as many as 65,000 could die from H1N1 -- has twice been revised down and the prediction is now for around 1,000 deaths, way below the average annual toll of 4,000 to 8,000 deaths from seasonal winter flu. Don't you think that an overestimate of 64,000 people is significant?

In Europe skepticism about the validity and safety of the H1N1 vaccine abounds and
Polish Health Minister Eva Kopacz sums it up well in addressing the Parliament (you will have to keep up with reading the English subtitles):


  1. Yes please educate yourself. Start by looking at the credentials of Dr Morris. Don't let the fear of the unknown turn into an actual unknown, and then your baby die from a preventable illness.

  2. Thank you for the comment Matthew. Dr. Anthony J. Morris is a former Chief Vaccine Control Officer at the US FDA, is that a bad credential? So you really believe that the flu is preventable with a flu vaccine? I guess you haven't read the manufacturers insert them, because it clearly states: "Specific levels of HI antibody titers post-vaccination with inactivated influenza virus vaccine have not been correlated with protection from influenza virus. In some human studies, antibody titers of 1:40 or greater have been associated with protection from influenza illness in up to 50% of subjects."

    In plain English that means IF a vaccine was 100 percent effective at achieving this level of seroconversion, it would protect up to 50 percent of the recipients of the vaccine.

    But none of the vaccines are 100 percent effective at achieving seroconversion. For example, the CSL's vaccine insert states that their H1N1 vaccine provides seroconversion for:

    * 48.7 percent of people aged 18-65
    * 34 percent for seniors, 65 and older

    That means that, at best, their vaccine works in ONE out of every FOUR people.

    Thank you, but you don't have to be a scientist to realize that your chances of fighting the flu with a healthy immune system are better than what a vaccine can give you (a weaker immune system). It is pretty simple, read the inserts when you get a chance. Thank you for visiting Eco-Babyz!

  3. Thank you for posting this great article that is providing *real* info as opposed to pharma-babble. And here we are now in February, and it looks like swine flu truly was overplayed/manufactured/whatever you want to call it.

  4. Dr J. Anthony Morris was apparently a bureaucrat at the FDA in the early 1970s and was forced out during a political battle. He is not a "distinguished virologist", and his only two publications indexed by PubMed are from the late 1940s-early 1950s and dealt with bacteria, not viruses. There is no reason to credit his opinions with any more value than the guy holding up "The End Is Nigh!" sign on the corner.
