It’s Never Too Late to Learn About Vaccines
The Corbett Report is one of the more erudite information sites on the Internet, I happen to believe. James provides in-depth dossiers that are difficult to refute. His June 15, 2013 report regarding the Mike Wallace interview with Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, is exceptional for several reasons.
However, what I find most striking is the flagrant perpetration of apparent misinformation about tobacco smoking and its use. Mike Wallace: 1) Smokes during the entire interview; and 2) spouts how “Philip Morris tastes natural” and is “the best natural smoke”.
Even at the end of the thirty-minute interview, Margaret Sanger chimes in with not being a smoker, but since being exposed to Philip Morris, she’s going to take up smoking and Philip Morris will be her brand of cigarette.
Here’s what I think we can learn from that historic interview; ought to point out; and analogize to what’s going on today: Deliberate misinformation affecting health was permitted to be disseminated over the public airwaves and in advertising—even from medical doctors being paid to appear in cigarette advertising. Don’t forget the famous Camel’s advertisements that pointed out most MDs chose the Camel brand.
Furthermore, an apparent irony is that today cigarette advertising is prohibited in all media. Lastly, cigarette smoking accounts for one in every five deaths in the USA according to the CDC.
If the tobacco/cigarette industry was that powerful in using its lobbyists in Washington, DC, and was able to manipulate public health negatively by advertising—and deliberately for so long, plus enticing Congress to provide tobacco subsidies in the jillion$, we have to wonder what impact the Surgeon General’s 1964 report really had.
The First Surgeon General’s report came out in 1964. Tobacco.org confirms that
On January 11, 1964, 200 reporters were locked into the State Department’s auditorium to hear a two hour briefing by surgeon general Dr. Luther L. Terry and other experts on a brown paperback book titled “Smoking and Health.” The security measures were felt necessary because of the Surgeon General report’s bold and closely-guarded verdict.
In 1964, the US was a country where over 50% of adult males smoked; 46% of all Americans smoked; where smoking was accepted in offices, airplanes and elevators, and where even cartoon TV programs were sponsored by cigarette brands.
It was a country where a multi-billion dollar industry and a way of life were severely threatened by the Surgeon General Report’s astounding conclusion: smoking causes cancer.
“It was a very dramatic and courageous thing to do,” said Joseph Califano, the top domestic policy aide to President Johnson.
It is this writer’s opinion that a similar ‘crime against humanity’ is being perpetrated against us again—and currently—with vaccine and vaccination misinformation campaigns that prey on the fear factor, smear tactics, and ad hominem remarks. Just as the tobacco industry was savvy enough to hoodwink everyone by having medical doctors in white coats promote cigarette facts, since they knew the public would believe doctors, is the same modus operandi taking place with in-your-face vaccine promotion campaigns?
Furthermore, Big Pharma has been able to influence Congress and infiltrate federal health agency positions and vice versa, to bring down sledge-hammer-like mandates about vaccines that, in effect, require children to become nothing short of scientific experiments, since vaccines are not tested for being able to cause cancer, being able to cause birth defects, and making the vaccine recipient infertile. Statements confirming those tests were not done on vaccines appear on vaccine package inserts! With that kind of safety lacking, vaccine safety is totally unproven. Should the public believe doctors in white coats? Well, just remember the cigarette smoking fiasco that turned out to be nothing short of death sentences for millions who chose to emulate doctors.
Vaccine safety advocates have to do the same thing that the First Surgeon General’s report on cigarettes did, I think, i.e., pound home that vaccines can cause cancer, since the original polio vaccines were known to contain SV-40, the cancer causing virus, as confirmed by Congress here. Plus, other diseases, since there are no guarantees from the FDA or vaccine makers that there are no other viruses lurking in any vaccines. Besides, vaccines makers cannot prove—or don’t want to because of cost factors—that viruses are not present and a hidden ‘ingredient’ in vaccines. In 2010 the porcine circovirus was found in the rotavirus vaccine. (Source)
In view of all the unknowns the gullible public is willing to accept about vaccines, the question this writer is prompted to ask is, “Why do you believe the white coats when they have a historically proven record in many instances of being wrong?” Can they be wrong again about vaccines? Do your research. Check out vaccine package inserts here for starters. What you learn may have you saying, “It’s never too late to learn.”
