Vaccine Choice Canada V-Bulletin
  January/February 2017
Dear VCC Members & Friends,
Vaccination & fake science   

For decades, the public mind has been captured by false reassurances derived from manipulated science telling us that vaccines are safe and effective. For just as long, families have witnessed their children suffer brain and immune system injuries following vaccination.  Many have seen their fully vaccinated children acquire the very diseases against which they’ve been vaccinated.  

These families are us – the parents and grandparents of vaccine injured children who have been sounding the alarm for a very long time and are calling for urgent action to expose the health injuries inflicted on our children and the fraudulent science behind the vaccine agenda.  

The science on vaccine safety and effectiveness is NOT settled, nor can the purveyors of ‘consensus science’ who use every nefarious means to shut down the vaccine debate, be trusted with our children’s health. Vaccination is a fatally flawed medical paradigm, propped up by fake science and fake news generated by mainstream media, itself controlled by the pharmaceutical industry.  

Allegations by CDC insiders and vaccine industry whistleblowers reveals a pervasive culture of deception within the industry.  The documentary Vaxxed provides clear evidence of manipulation and fraud in vaccine study data that endangers the lives and health of millions of children around the world. Vaxxed is more than a film. It is a global movement documenting the thousands of vaccine injury cases, swept under the carpet of derision and denial for far too long.

The time tested tools of ‘fear and coercion’ used by medical ‘experts’ to elicit obedience to vaccine dogma are beginning to falter. The fortress of vaccine protectionism is about to be stormed.  Recent U.S. political events have brought the issue of fake news to the fore.  Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s recent meeting with President Trump and the possibility of an independent vaccine safety commission has mainstream media howling with outrage – a clear sign we’ve hit a major nerve in the fake vaccine science cabal.

Claims of vaccine safety are being blown to bits by emerging science showing that vaccine-induced immune  challenges during early development can lead to permanent detrimental alterations of the brain and immune function.  Science writer Celeste McGovern writes about the recent discovery of widespread complex contaminants in vaccines. Using “extremely sensitive new technologies not used in vaccine manufacturing”, Italian scientists have discovered shocking amounts of contaminants in all human vaccines analyzed. This includes single particles and aggregates of organic debris including red blood cells of human or possibly animal origin and metals including lead, tungsten, gold, and chromium, that have been linked to autoimmune disease and leukemia. The researchers say their results show contamination with micro and nano sized particles of inorganic substances are NOT declared in vaccine products’ ingredients lists. The significance of non-degradable nano particles implanted by injection are discussed here.

And this article probes the depths of manipulated vaccine science, and how the public has been deceived about vaccine safety.

“In reality, the public conversation about vaccination is being manipulated by a little known but well-funded and highly orchestrated pharma-driven disinformation campaign using every tactic in the book to squash freedom of thought and speech in order to protect vaccine industry profits ... Documentation obtained via FOIA proves the FDA and CDC knew childhood vaccines were overexposing young children to mercury, a potent neurotoxin.  

Clearly, having an open discussion about vaccine safety means opening the door to doubt, and this is something the drug industry simply cannot afford. Meanwhile, avoiding the discussion is something parents, and the health care system as a whole, can no longer afford.”

This author explains how the vaccine cover up and resulting harm to children’s health has been pulled off.
“Fake science would involve biased science funding agendas, regulatory capture of agencies, conflicts of interest, willful ignorance of risk, failure of duty to warn, profit pressures, media blackouts, and government censorship of private citizens.”

Lifting the veil on vaccine safety science

It’s standard practice for mainstream media to immediately attack, vilify, marginalize and discredit anyone who questions vaccine safety or ‘consensus science’ which claims that the “science is settled”.  As you’re probably aware, the most recent victim of mainstream media attack is Robert F. Kennedy Jr.  His crime?  A willingness to head up an independent commission to look into vaccine safety science.
Veteran vaccine-autism commentator, Anne Dachel discusses the rigged science, the fixed findings and destroyed data that has enabled government regulatory agencies, the medical industry and media to get away with the greatest lie ever told – that “vaccines are safe and effective”.
“No reporter will ever discuss the power and influence the pharmaceutical industry has over our health officials (and the media for that matter). Pharma long ago bought the regulators and the press.

ANY HONEST COVERAGE would open the door to the possibility that through total oversight failure and corruption, we are now looking at the systematic poisoning of a generation of children through the mandated vaccine program.”
As an environmental lawyer, Kennedy has been investigating environmental mercury toxicity for many years. He was approached by mothers whose children had been vaccine injured who told him if he was serious about eliminating the “perils of mercury”, that he must look into vaccines, the biggest vector for mercury exposure in children.

Kennedy discovered that vaccines are not subject to the rigorous safety reviews other pharmaceuticals products undergo in the FDA approval process, that there are no large scale, double-blind, true placebo-controlled studies demonstrating thimerosal's safety, or for that matter aluminum adjuvants and other biochemical ingredients routinely injected into healthy children.

Kennedy’s book, Thimerosal: Let the Science Speak reviews the published science on mercury toxicity. He advocates for the elimination of this neurotoxic chemical from the world’s vaccine supplies. For this he is vilified as an anti-vaccine zealot.

Hazards of Injecting Vaccines During Pregnancy

Mercury is the second most toxic substance on the planet, second only to radioactive plutonium, a byproduct of nuclear reactors and is used in nuclear weapons production. 50% of thimerosal, a vaccine preservative, is comprised of mercury.  Any reasonable person would agree that mercury, a severe neurotoxin has no place in medicines or drugs of any kind.  It is barbaric to inject it into pregnant women and children as is the current practice.
The concerned authors of this paper looked for evidence that thimerosal is safe to inject into pregnant women.
“The scientific evidence that… thimerosal causes reproductive toxicity is clear and voluminous. Thimerosal dissociates in the body to ethyl mercury. The evidence for its reproductive toxicity includes severe mental retardation or malformations in human offspring who were poisoned when their mothers were exposed to ethyl mercury or thimerosal while pregnant, studies in animals demonstrating developmental toxicity after exposure to either ethyl mercury or thimerosal, and data showing interconversion to other forms of mercury that also clearly cause reproductive toxicity.”

It is very clear. There is no credible science showing it is safe to inject mercury containing vaccines during pregnancy. Yet the practice continues.  This mother who was coerced into submitting to a flu vaccine early in pregnancy shares her tragic story.

Both mercury and aluminum containing vaccines can cause abnormal activation of the brain’s own immune cell. Scientists have known for some time that maternal immune activation during pregnancy can cause a “surge” of cytokine (immune cell) activation in the fetal brain and that it is this abnormal surge of brain immune cells that can cause brain injuries.
“It is proven beyond any doubt that activation of the maternal immune system (during gestation) causes autism and other brain injury in the fetus”, writes the author of this paper.  He reviews the science showing that abnormal activation of the infant brain both before and after birth can result in brain injuries which can then lead to an autism diagnosis. He concludes,  
“The evidence is consistent and strong. Sensitive brain development processes continue after birth. The developing postnatal brain can be injured by immune activation, just like the fetal brain. Vaccines will cause this brain injury if they stimulate excessive cytokine exposure in the brain.”

Kennedy and Trump are accused of giving credence to the anti-vaccine camp. Their accusers raise fears that a vaccine safety review would fuel the ‘anti-vaccination’ movement, and if allowed to proceed,  will bring back the dark ages of deadly infectious diseases. Ignored is the historical fact that the dramatic decline in mortality from infectious diseases occurred prior to mass vaccination programs and had little to do with vaccination. Rather it had EVERYTHING to do with basic public health measures of improved sanitation, clean water supplies, improved nutrition and less crowded housing.

When Science Becomes Orthodoxy

In an interview for the recently aired online documentary series, Vaccines Revealed, in episode 3, Robert Kennedy Jr. spoke of what happens when science becomes orthodoxy.
“Orthodoxies are cruel any way you see them -  they are ultimately cruel, You have to be able to question things. Science is not religion. You can’t just say ‘I believe’ - no matter how mean it is, or how cruel. No matter how ruthless or damaging it is to children – we have to do what it says – we have to obey the CDC.”  

In the interview, Kennedy also discussed the damage caused to children “by the one paper that didn’t tell the truth.” He said the CDC has known since 1999 that its vaccine program was exposing children to dangerous mercury levels, and that hundreds of published articles show this link. 
“What that same paper has done with thimerosal is probably 10 times worse because there are 100 million kids who are exposed to this [thimerosal containing vaccines] and the NY Times won’t allow any discussion on it.”  He said, “I cannot stand by and watch these children be poisoned – an entire generation of kids has been poisoned now by government policies and greed.  We’re going to take them on – we at the World mercury Project.”

Twelve years ago, Kennedy’s blockbuster exposé of the CDC cover-up, Vaccinations: Deadly Immunity – Government Cover-up of a Mercury-Autism Scandal, probed the length and breadth of CDC malfeasance and the extent of neurological damage the cover-up of mercury toxicity has inflicted on untold numbers of children around the world.

In the article, Kennedy lays out the sordid history of regulatory agency and pharmaceutical industry collusion to hide the damning data. The CDC hired Danish epidemiologist Thomas Verstraeten to review its database on childhood exposures to thimerosal containing vaccines. He found a dramatic increase in neurological disorders, including autism among children who had been injected with mercury containing vaccines.

Also cited, were earlier studies that found a link between thimerosal and speech delays, attention-deficit disorder, hyperactivity and autism. Instead of immediately ordering the removal of thimerosal from vaccines and alerting doctors and the public to the danger, the CDC ordered Verstraeten to re-work the data until the adverse effects disappeared, thus intentionally perpetuating vaccine induced injuries while claiming it’s safe to inject mercury containing vaccines into infants and young children.

This pattern of cover-up, manipulation and denial of the science exposing vaccine dangers has intensified over the years and is at the root of the extreme and vicious rhetoric leveled at anyone or any group that dares question or challenge vaccine orthodoxy.

The Need for an Independent Vaccine Safety Commission

An independent vaccine safety commission headed up by Robert Kennedy Jr. would put the existing vaccine studies on the table, assess them for methodology, overall quality, determine whether they are based on sound scientific principles, weed out the ‘junk’ science, and would determine whether the science underpinning mass vaccination programs meets the most rigorous standards of determining vaccine safety and effectiveness.

Well known is the fact that serious gaps in vaccine safety science have long been acknowledged by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) scientific review committee. In 2013, the IOM found numerous gaps in vaccine safety science:

“Although the committee identified several studies that reviewed the outcomes of studies of cumulative immunizations, adjuvants and preservatives, the committee generally found a paucity of information, scientific or otherwise, that addressed the risk of adverse events in association with the complete recommended immunization schedule . . . studies designed to examine the long term effects of the cumulative number of vaccines or other aspects of the immunization schedule have not been conducted.”

An independent evaluation of vaccine studies showing that the current vaccine schedule is safe and effective has never been done. It is time!!   

Corruption in Science

It is an accepted fact, that the scientific and medical establishment has been captured and corrupted by corporate and regulatory agency conflicts of interest.
“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine”, wrote Dr. Marcia Angell.

Echoing her statement, Lancet editor Richard Horton said,
“The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.”

When leaders in the medical community publicly state that medical research and scientific integrity has gone off the rails and that 50% or more of published research literature is derived from studies whose design and conclusions cannot be trusted to accurately report the findings, it would be naïve to believe that vaccine science operates any differently, or is exempt from the same corrupting influences.

In addition to the mercury/thimerosal scandal, we now know that the CDC has deliberately destroyed data showing that MMR vaccine, when given according to the current schedule, increases the risk that children will acquire an autism diagnosis. African American male children are particularly susceptible if given the vaccine younger than age three. Mumps outbreaks in fully vaccinated people points toward whistleblower allegations that the vaccine’s manufacturer falsified data on the effectiveness of the vaccine.

Vaccines don’t undergo the same rigorous placebo controlled trials other drugs are subjected to prior to marketing approval and prior to being injected into millions of healthy children during the most critical phases of brain growth and immune system development. Vaccines have been given a free pass despite a growing body of scientific evidence that the injection of these complex biochemical drugs adversely impacts both the immune system and the developing brain. In an interview, Pediatrician Paul Thomas MD says,
“We have a million cases of autism this past decade, and it is growing at a rapid rate, and that’s the tip of the iceberg. For every autistic kid, there’s five or ten other kids with more subtle neurological issues: learning problems, anxiety, ADD, ADHD, and then all the autoimmune and immune system disruption that goes on.”

Aluminum adjuvanted vaccines -  another staggering problem  

Aluminum is a well documented neurotoxin used to boost immune response in many pediatric vaccines. The largest amount of aluminum is injected into babies in the first few years of life during the most critical time of brain development. When a child is injected with two neurotoxic heavy metals, aluminum and mercury during the early years when the brain is developing rapidly, it potentiates a compound synergistic toxicity.  Doctors and pediatricians simply disregard this FDA warning:
“Research indicates that patients with impaired kidney function, including premature neonates, who receive parenteral levels of aluminum at greater than 4 to 5 [micro]g/kg/day accumulate aluminum at levels associated with central nervous system and bone toxicity. Tissue loading may occur at even lower rates of administration."
Unless parents know that prior to age two, their children can receive upwards of 4,924 micrograms of injected aluminum and the accompanying risks, they are unable to make a well informed vaccine decision to protect their children from neurotoxic assault.

The Children’s Medical Safety Research Institute (CMSRI) has sponsored a number of studies examining aluminum toxicity at various stages of life. CMSRI is an independent research organization that works with a growing network of independent scientists doing objective bench science with a goal of mapping the effects of injected aluminum on the immune system and brain.

One of their studies was conducted by Canadian neuroscientists Chris Shaw and Lucija Tomljenovic which found that children in countries with the highest prevalence of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) also have the highest exposures to aluminum (Al) from vaccines and that the increased exposure to injected aluminum adjuvants,
“significantly correlates with the increase in ASD prevalence in the United States observed over the last two decades (Pearson r=0.92, p<0.0001); and (iii) a significant correlation exists between the amounts of Al administered to preschool children and the current prevalence of ASD in seven Western countries, particularly at 3-4 months of age.”

CMRSI provides information on both ingested aluminum which the body is mostly able to clear, as well as comparative research on the effects of injected aluminum on immune system function, autoimmune disorders, neurological impairments and brain injuries.  Bypassing the normal portals of entry through lungs, nose, throat and gut, these complex biochemical drugs are thrust directly into the body by injection in a frontal assault on the immune system unprecedented in human evolutionary history.

Claire Dwoskin the founder of CMSRI writes highly informative articles on the cutting edge science being done.  In this article she asks, “Are aluminum adjuvants plus Gardasil a uniquely damaging neuroinflammatory cocktail?" She goes on to discuss the  implications of using aluminum-based placebos that are not innocuous or inert but instead are “intrinsically capable of stimulating pathological immune and neuro-inflammatory responses.'”

If children weren’t being damaged, there’d be no issue

If the vaccine ‘safety science’ on which current vaccine policies rest is honest, credible and verifiable, then the pro-vaccine camp has nothing to fear from a science review.  If the escalating push to force mandatory vaccination on the every man woman and child is based on credible science that demonstrates both safety and effectiveness, then the vaccine controversy would simply fade away.

If however it is the case, as evidenced by a growing body of independent scientific literature, that vaccines are neither as safe nor effective as we’ve been led to believe, then there is every reason to re-examine the science on which the childhood vaccine schedule is based. Failing to do so has already placed millions of children in harms way. Even worse, it threatens the integrity of the health of future generations.
“The problem responsible scientists are faced with right now" writes this author "is that the evidence is accumulating that the CDC’s childhood vaccine schedule is not scientifically-based. The medical doctors, academic researchers, citizen scientists, and concerned parents who are taking the time to read the science and educate themselves about what we know and what we don’t about vaccines are all coming to the same conclusion: something is very wrong with today’s childhood vaccine recommendations. Our current medical recommendations seem to be harming children’s bodies and their brains.”

Vaccine Choice Canada will continue to urge parents to carefully research vaccine risks and failures prior to making a decision to inject these complex biochemical drugs into their children and loved ones. We will continue to search the medical and scientific literature for independent studies to inform you of the impact these substances have on the brain and immune system when injected during critical periods of growth in infancy and early childhood. Through our growing network of independent researchers, doctors, science writers,  international networks of affected families, our websites, facebook pages, articles, and newsletters, we pledge to bring you trusted information that will help you make an informed vaccine decision.   

Update on provincial vaccine legislations


On December 8, 2016, the Ontario government re-introduced a legislative amendment to the Immunization of School Pupils Act (ISPA) which will “require parents to complete an immunization education session before filing a statement of conscience or religious belief”.  The amendment is now embedded in Bill 87, Protecting Patients Act which mostly relates to seniors health issues.  

Since it was first introduced last spring as Bill 198, members of Vaccine Choice Canada have worked hard to alert the public about this impending assault on our health freedoms and the right to refuse unwanted medical treatments.  The previous Bill 198 died along with other bills when the Wynne government ‘prorogued’ parliament early last fall.  

The ISPA amendment now resurrected is tucked into Bill 87, the Protecting Patients Act which passed first reading on December 8.  Inserting the ISPA amendment into Bill 87 forces members of parliament who might vote against the ‘vaccine education session’ the province aims to impose on parents, would be conflicted and might feel they have to vote for Bill 87 because the majority of this legislation is about health issues unrelated to vaccines or children’s health.

Our petition opposing the amendment garnered thousands of signatures and was presented to the Ontario legislature on three separate occasions. Many people met with their provincial members of parliament to voice their concerns about this restrictive legislation and to protest against the narrowing of our right to make voluntary and educated vaccine choices for our children. A foundational concern is that this bill violates the medical ethic of Informed Consent, and our Canadian Charter rights of freedom of conscience and religion.  

When the new session of the Ontario legislature convenes on February 21, Bill 87 will be pushed along to second reading, at which point we may have the opportunity to make a presentation opposing the amendment to a legislative committee. We must keep up the pressure on legislators…..


An amendment to Alberta’s public health Act passed 3rd reading on Novermber 22, 2016.  The amendment gives public health officials more power to access children’s vaccination records, and will increase pressure on parents to comply with the provincial vaccine schedule.  This reply (pdf) to VCC from Health Minister Sarah Hoffman also confirms that vaccination remains voluntary and that a form will be available for parents refusing vaccination for their child. We have not yet seen the form on the government website.
“Student enrolment information will then be used by public health professionals, employed by AHS, to contact parents of students with missing immunization information to inform them that their child is missing immunization records, and to explain the benefits of immunization to parents with doubts or concerns. Parents will have to provide their child’s immunization records, complete any needed immunizations, get a letter from a doctor indicating a medical exemption, or sign a form indicating they decline immunization for their child. Immunization will remain voluntary.”

As of this writing, searches of the Alberta government website do not yield a link to a vaccine exemption forrm.  
A Tribute to Dan Olmstead

Dan Olmstead was an investigative journalist par excellence. Dan passed away suddenly on January 23, 2017. Dan was a man with a deeply compassionate heart, keen intelligence and was a brilliant writer. He wrote hundreds of articles on the vaccine-autism link for over a decade.  He founded the Age of Autism daily web newspaper on the autism epidemic, a place where we could read about the latest cutting edge science, personal stories and political events.  This moving article by Julia Obradovic echoes the sentiments and feelings of many of us whose daily visit to the Age of Autism blog made our journey less lonely, a safe place to share the grief of having lost previosly healthy children to vaccine injuries.  Dan will be missed forever, but his work and dedication to bringing ‘truth to power’ lives on!
