THE RACE TO PREVENT HERPES OUTBREAKS

The first day, Eli felt tingling sensations up his penis, circling his testicles and then surging down his legs. “I was thinking what the hell is this,” Eli says. The next day brought sensations of burning and stabbing. Bedridden for hours, he finally went to the bathroom to pee, but saw nothing visibly wrong. A quick Google search pointed him to one diagnosis: herpes.

Eli, sadly, is far from alone. The World Health Organization says almost half a billion people below the age of 50 suffer from Herpes Simplex Virus-2, the kind that afflicts the genitals. A whopping 3.7 billion people have Herpes Simplex Virus-1, the mostly oral kind. There are treatments, but so far no preventative solution. The quest for a herpes vaccine is “one of the biggest unsolved problems of infectious disease,” says William Halford, an associate professor at the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine.

I’d love the peace of mind to know my partners were not at risk of getting herpes.

But that may change. Halford is among a growing number of researchers questing for the herpes vaccine, both at medical schools and at biotech firms. All approach the vaccine differently, and if any of them are successful, they might just create the next human papillomavirus vaccine, which is now recommended for women below the age of 26.

These days, epidemiologists are pretty optimistic that all the itching and burning will someday soon be prevented: “I think we’ll see the vaccine in the next 5 to 10 years,” says Litjen Tan, a strategist at the Immunization Action Coalition. And that has people with herpes, like Ella Dawson, who has blogged about her disease for multiple outlets, thrilled: “I’d love the peace of mind to know my partners were not at risk of getting herpes,” she says.

If you’re surprised that the herpes vaccine is suddenly, um, sexy, well, you’re not alone. Overall vaccination research is on a “downward” trend, says Paul Offit, of the Vaccine Education Center at Philadelphia Children’s Hospital, even as biotech as a whole continues to grow. (IBIS research predicts a 50 percent rise in revenues, to $161 billion, by 2020.) What’s en vogue are CRISPR technology and cancer drugs.

Vaccines saw the height of their success in the mid-1900s with the approval of polio, diphtheria, whooping cough, and tetanus immunizations, and now the field has whittled down to four major vaccine developers: GSK, Merck, Pfizer and Sanofi. By the ‘80s, thanks to popular reports that vaccines did more harm than good, the consumer base had shrunk for immunizations.

GlaxoSmithKline Fined A Whopping $3 Billion For Bribing Doctors, Lying To The FDA, Hiding Clinical Data

Glaxo

Irrefutable proof that Big Pharma is a criminal racket: Bribery, scientific fraud, felony crimes and more

Those of us who have long been describing the pharmaceutical industry as a “criminal racket” over the last few years have been wholly vindicated by recent news. Drug and vaccine manufacturer Merck was caught red-handed by two of its own scientists faking vaccine efficacy data by spiking blood samples with animal antibodies.

GlaxoSmithKline has just been fined a whopping $3 billion for bribing doctors, lying to the FDA, hiding clinical trial data and fraudulent marketing. Pfizer, meanwhile has been sued by the nation’s pharmacy retailers for what is alleged as an “overarching anticompetitive scheme” to keep generic cholesterol drugs off the market and thereby boost its own profits.

The picture that’s emerging is one of a criminal drug industry that has turned to mafia tactics in the absence of any real science that would prove their products to be safe or effective. The emergence of this extraordinary evidence of bribery, scientific fraud, lying to regulators and monopolistic practices that harm consumers is also making all those doctors and “skeptics” who defended Big Pharma and vaccines eat their words.

To defend Big Pharma today is to defend a cabal of criminal corporations that have proven they will do anything — absolutely anything — to keep their profits rolling in. It makes no difference who they have to bribe, what studies they have to falsify, or who has to be threatened into silence. They will stop at nothing to expand their profit base, even if it means harming (or killing) countless innocents.

Let’s take a look at recent revelations:

GlaxoSmithKline pleads guilty to bribery, fraud and other crimes

In what is now the largest criminal fraud settlement ever to come out of the pharmaceutical industry, GlaxoSmithKline has pleaded guilty and agreed to pay $1 billion in criminal fines and $2 billion in civil fines following a nine-year federal investigation into its activities.

According to U.S. federal investigators, GlaxoSmithKline (http://www.naturalnews.com/036416_GlaxoSmith…):

• Routinely bribed doctors with luxury vacations and paid speaking gigs
• Fabricated drug safety data and lied to the FDA
• Defrauded Medicare and Medicaid out of billions
• Deceived regulators about the effectiveness of its drugs
• Relied on its deceptive practices to earn billions of dollars selling potentially dangerous drugs to unsuspecting consumers and medical patients

And this is just the part they got caught doing. GSK doesn’t even deny any of this. The company simply paid the $3 billion fine, apologized to its customers, and continued conducting business as usual.

By the way, in addition to bribing physicians, GSK has plenty of money to spread around bribing celebrities and others who pimps its products. The company reportedly paid $275,000 to the celebrity doctor known as “Dr. Drew,” who promoted Glaxo’s mind-altering antidepressant drug Wellbutrin (http://naturalsociety.com/top-radio-doctor-p…).

As the Wall Street Journal reports:

In June 1999, popular radio personality Dr. Drew Pinsky used the airwaves to extol the virtues of GlaxoSmithKline PLC’s antidepressant Wellbutrin, telling listeners he prescribes it and other medications to depressed patients because it “may enhance or at least not suppress sexual arousal” as much as other antidepressants do. But one thing listeners didn’t know was that, two months before the program aired, Dr. Pinsky — who gained fame as “Dr. Drew” during years co-hosting a popular radio sex-advice show “Loveline” — received the second of two payments from Glaxo totaling $275,000 for “services for Wellbutrin.”

Merck falsified vaccine data, spiked blood samples and more, say former employees

According to former Merck virologists Stephen Krahling and Joan Wlochowski, the company: (http://www.naturalnews.com/036328_Merck_mump…)

• “Falsified test data to fabricate a vaccine efficacy rate of 95 percent or higher.”

• Spiked the blood test with animal antibodies in order to artificially inflate the appearance of immune system antibodies.

• Pressured the two virologists to “participate in the fraud and subsequent cover-up.”

• Used the falsified trial results to swindle the U.S. government out of “hundreds of millions of dollars for a vaccine that does not provide adequate immunization.”

• Intimidated the scientists, threatening them with going to jail unless they stayed silent.

This is all documented in a 2010 False Claims Act which NaturalNews has acquired and posted here:
http://www.naturalnews.com/gallery/documents…

Millions of children put at risk by Merck

In that document the two virologists say they, “witnessed firsthand the improper testing and data falsification in which Merck engaged to artificially inflate the vaccine’s efficacy findings.”

They also claim that because of the faked vaccine results, “the United States has over the last decade paid Merck hundreds of millions of dollars for a vaccine that does not provide adequate immunization… The United States is by far the largest financial victim of Merck’s fraud.”

They go on to point out that children are the real victims, however:

“But the ultimate victims here are the millions of children who every year are being injected with a mumps vaccine that is not providing them with an adequate level of protection. …The failure in Merck’s vaccine has allowed this disease to linger with significant outbreaks continuing to occur.”

Merck’s mumps viral strain is 45 years old

According to the complaint, Merck has been using the same mumps strain — weakened from generations of being “passaged” — for the last 45 years! The complaint reads:

“For more than thirty years, Merck has had an exclusive license from the FDA to manufacture and sell a mumps vaccine in the U.S. The FDA first approved the vaccine in 1967. It was developed by Dr. Maurice Hilleman, at Merck’s West Point research facility, from the mumps virus that infected his five year-old daughter Jeryl Lynn. Merck continues to use this ‘Jeryl Lynn’ strain of the virus for its vaccine today.”

A complete medical farce

This information appears to show Merck’s mumps vaccine to be a complete medical farce. Those who blindly backed Merck’s vaccines — the science bloggers, “skeptics,” doctors, CDC and even the FDA — have been shown to be utter fools who have now destroyed their reputations by siding with an industry now known to be dominated by scientific fraud and unbounded criminality.

That’s the really hilarious part in all this: After decades of doctors, scientists and government authorities blindly and brainlessly repeating the mantra of “95% effectiveness,” it all turns out to be total quackery hogwash. Utterly fabricated. Quackety-quack quack. And all those hundreds of millions of Americans who lined up to be injected with MMR vaccines were all repeatedly and utterly conned into potentially harming themselves while receiving no medical benefit.

Intelligent, informed Natural News readers, home school parents, and “awakened” people who said “No!” to vaccines are now emerging as the victors in all this. By refusing to be injected with Merck’s vaccines, they avoided being assaulted with a fraudulent cocktail of adjuvant chemicals and all-but-useless mumps strains over four decades old. They protected their time, money and health. Those who refuse to be physically violated by vaccines are, once again, turning out to be the smartest people in society. No wonder they also tend to be healthier than the clueless fools who line up to get vaccinated every year.

Merck fraudulently misrepresented the efficacy of its vaccine and contributed to the spread of infectious disease, says lawsuit

The faked vaccine efficacy numbers aren’t the only troubles Merck is now facing. Shortly after the above False Claims Act was made public, Chatom Primary Care filed suit against Merck. That document is available from NaturalNews at:
http://www.naturalnews.com/gallery/documents…

It alleges that:

• [Merck engaged in] …a decade-long scheme to falsify and misrepresent the true efficacy of its vaccine.

• Merck fraudulently represented and continues to falsely represent in its labeling and elsewhere that its Mumps Vaccine has an efficacy rate of 95 percent of higher.

• Merck knows and has taken affirmative steps to conceal — by using improper testing techniques and falsifying test data — that its Mumps Vaccine is, and has been since at least 1999, far less than 95 percent effective.

• Merck designed a testing methodology that evaluated its vaccine against a less virulent strain of the mumps virus. After the results failed to yield Merck’s desired efficacy, Merck abandoned the methodology and concealed the study’s findings.

• Merck also engaged in “incorporating the use of animal antibodies to artificially inflate the results… destroying evidence of the falsified data and then lying to an FDA investigator… threatened a virologist in Merck’s vaccine division with jail if he reported the fraud to the FDA.”

• “Merck designed a testing methodology that evaluated its vaccine against a less virulent strain of the mumps virus. After the results failed to yield Merck’s desired efficacy, Merck abandoned the methodology and concealed the study’s findings. [Then] Merck designed even more scientifically flawed methodology, this time incorporating the use of animal antibodies to artificially inflate the results, but it too failed to achieve Merck’s fabricated efficacy rate. Confronted with two failed methodologies, Merck then falsified the test data to guarantee the results it desired. Having achieved the desired, albeit falsified, efficacy threshold, Merck submitted these fraudulent results to the FDA and European Medicines Agency.”

• “Merck took steps to cover up the tracks of its fraudulent testing by destroying evidence of the falsified data and then lying to an FDA investigator… Merck also attempted to buy the silence and cooperation of its staff by offering them financial incentives to follow the direction of Merck personnel overseeing the fraudulent testing process. Merck also threatened… Stephen Krahling, a virologist in Merck’s vaccine division from 1999 to 2001, with jail if he reported fraud to the FDA.”

• “Merck continued to conceal what it knew about the diminished efficacy of its Mumps Vaccine even after significant mumps outbreaks in 2006 and 2009.”

Obama administration has zero interest in actual justice

Another interesting note in all this is that under President Obama, the U.S. Dept. of Justice showed no interest whatsoever in investigating Merck over the False Claims Act filed by two of its former virologists. Despite the convincing evidence of fraud described in detail by insider whistleblowers, the Obama Department of Justice, led by gun-running Attorney General Eric Holder who is already facing serious questions over Operation Fast and Furious, simply chose to ignore the False Claims Act complaint.

When evidence of criminal fraud was brought before the U.S. Department of Justice, in other words, the DoJ looked the other way with a wink and a nod to the medical crimes taking place right under their noses. Who cares if tens of millions of children are being injected year after year with a fraudulent mumps vaccine? There’s money to be made, after all, and exploiting the bodies of little children for profit is just business as usual in a fascist nation dominated by corporate interests.

Pfizer sued by retailers over anticompetitive scheme

Adding to all this, Pfizer has now been sued by five U.S. retailers (pharmacies) who accuse the company of monopolistic market practices. According to the lawsuit, Pfizer conspired to prevent generic versions of its blockbuster cholesterol drug Lipitor from entering the market. This was done to protect billions in profits while making sure patients did not have access to more affordable cholesterol drugs. Pfizer sells nearly $10 billion worth of Lipitor each year.

According to the Reuters report on this lawsuit, Pfizer is being accused of (http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/07/05/us…):

• Obtaining a fraudulent patent
• Engaging in sham litigation
• Entering a price-fixing agreement to delay cheaper generics
• Entering arrangements with pharmacy benefit managers to force retailers to buy more Lipitor (chemical name is atorvastatin calcium)

No arrests or prosecution of Big Pharma executives

One of the most astonishing realizations in all this is that given all the criminal fraud, bribery, misrepresentation, lying to the FDA, price fixing and other crimes that are going on in the pharmaceutical industry, you’d think somebody somewhere might be arrested and charged with a crime, right?

Nope.

To date, not a single pharmaceutical CEO, marketing employee or drug rep has been charged with anything related to all this fraud. In America, drug company employees are “above the law” just like top mafia bosses of a bygone era.

How insane is this, exactly? Consider this:

Imagine if YOU, an individual, went around town bribing doctors, falsifying data, selling a fraudulent product to the government, lying to regulators, engaging in anti-trade price-fixing and threatening your employees into silence. What would happen to you?

You’d probably wind up rotting in prison, the subject of an FBI investigation and a DoJ prosecution.

So why is it okay for a multi-billion-dollar corporation to carry out these same crimes and get away with it? Why are the CEOs of top drug companies given a free pass to commit felony crimes and endless fraud?

I’ll tell you why, and you’re not gonna like the answer: Because America has become a nation run by crooks for the benefit of crooks. It’s one big country club, and as comedian George Carlin used to say, “YOU ain’t in it!”

If Big Pharma would falsify data on vaccines, what else would the industry do?

I hope you’re getting the bigger picture in all this, friends. If these drug companies routinely bribe doctors, falsify data, defraud the government and commit felony crimes without remorse, what else would they be willing to do for profit?

Would they:

• Falsify efficacy data on other prescription drugs?
• Exploit children for deadly vaccine trials?
• Invent fictitious diseases to sell more drugs?
• Unleash bioweapons to cause a profitable pandemic?
• Conspire with the CDC to spread fear to promote vaccinations?
• Silence whistleblowers who try to go public with the truth?
• Give people cancer via stealth viruses in vaccines?
• Destroy the careers of medical scientists who question Big Pharma?
• Force a medical monopoly on the entire U.S. population via socialist health care legislation?

But of course they would. In fact, the industry is doing all those things right now. And if you don’t believe me, just remember that five years ago, no one believed me when I said drug companies were engaged in criminal conspiracies to defraud the nation — something that has now been proven over a nine-year investigation.

Medicine Against Tuberculosis In Africa Causes Aids

Johan van Dongen and Joel Savage

Diseases associated with immune deficiency can be categorized. It involves an immune deficiency or either cellular immunity or hypersensitivity. Human beings, especially with no other deficiency, are susceptible to pyogenic infection. Usually, humans can cope in a normal manner with viral and fungal infections.

 

Tuberculosis 7

However, in contrast, a patient with a cellular deficiency hypersensitivity following polio- and cowpox vaccination are particularly prone to certain bacterial, viral and protozoal infections caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis TB. And then the pharmaceutical disease producing factories appear by using deadly toxic agents such as Isoniazid, produced by Teva Netherlands BV, and Sulfadiazide, produced by Pfizer.

Tuberculosis is a chronically infectious disease which generally affects the lungs. The causing agent tubercle bacilli, is mostly passed on from person to person through coughing of droplets from the respiratory-tract (lungs), and can also be transmitted to the skin and eyes of people in the immediate vicinity. Tubercles also can penetrate the body through drinking.

In Africa tuberculosis and HIV go hand in hand, but the mass spread of tuberculosis infections in Africa are not caused by HIV or AIDS infection at all. The increase in the number of Africa TB patients is a result of the intended spread of special tuberculosis agents treated with Sulfadiozanide and Isoniazide which causes Aids!

Tuberculosis 2

Both agents will be thoroughly discussed in the next article, entitled: “Pharmaceutical Disease Producing Factories, Using  Isoniazide And Sulfadiazide,” a very tough publication of which will force you to read.

Tubercles can nowadays be successfully and completely cured by the use of Isoniazide and Sulfadiazide. But that is the cover-up because both agents cause hundreds of new diseases as we will describe within the next mentioned article.  Because both agents heal tuberculosis almost 100%, Africans think it’s a very good medicine indeed, but these agents are Trojan Horses in sheep’s clothing.

The discovery of HIV antibodies after tuberculosis, polio- and cowpox vaccinations, carried out on African children by the Pasteur Institute of France, gave birth to various diseases including venereal disease, which was never exposed to the media and the literature world the way they should be. After the children’s vaccination against tuberculosis in Uganda, Kenya and Zimbabwe by Institute Pasteur, there was a very serious side effect, because the vaccine was contaminated, drastically affecting the Ugandan government. Scientists who observed this reported on this issue; “In Weekly Topic 1991 March 8: 1(col.1-6)”.

Above all, after a huge increase in tuberculosis among children occurred and was treated with Isoniazide and Sulfadiazide, it is very remarkable these infections only occur in children under nine years! Not ten years! For their age-group, from 1983 to 1986, tuberculosis increased significantly by 432 percent in Africa.

Tuberculosis 3

Hospitals, including Mbare Hospital in Harare, were suddenly full of tuberculosis patients, and also suffering from venereal diseases at the same time, as a side effect consequence, because Isoniazide and Sulfadiazide made them susceptible to the diseases. It is obvious that Isoniazide and Sulfadiazide are the cause of these venereal diseases because it appears in almost all infected children under the age of ten.

Curiously, it is mainly children who were sick, while about half of all juvenile patients developed antibodies against the HIV virus in their blood. It is also astonishing that children without any sexual experience suffered from venereal diseases. Even more astonishing is the fact that these results are indicated by the World Health Organization in a Weekly Epidemic Record in 1992.

The Centers for Disease Controls as well in the USA reported and listed the relationship between Aids and tuberculosis.
