Who can we turn to for truth and honesty these days? One thing most people agree on is the fact that every year it becomes more difficult to rely on the government regulatory agencies who oversee various services we use in our everyday lives.
One of those areas is medicine, a field meant to support our health and well-being but which, in many instances, has become too corrupt to do so. And prominent scientists and doctors who have been working in this field for years are now speaking out against the scientific fraud and corporate influence that so plagues the industry.
“The medical profession is being bought by the pharmaceutical industry, not only in terms of the practice of medicine, but also in terms of teaching and research. The academic institutions of this country are allowing themselves to be the paid agents of the pharmaceutical industry. I think it’s disgraceful.”
– Arnold Seymour Relman (1923-2014), Harvard Professor of Medicine and former Editor-in-Chief of the New England Medical Journal (source)
One of the most recent examples is senior CDC scientist Dr. William Thompson, who published some of the most commonly cited pro-vaccine studies. These studies purported to show that there was absolutely no link between the MMR vaccine and autism (Thompson, et al. 2007, Price, et al. 2010, Destefano, et al. 2004). However, Dr. Thompson recently admitted that it was “the lowest point” in his career when he “went along with that paper.” He went on to say that he and the other authors “didn’t report significant findings” and that he is “completely ashamed” of what he did. He was “complicit and went along with this,” and regrets that he has “been a part of the problem.” (source)(source)(source).

Dr. Diane Harper has also caught the attention of the public. A professor and chair of the Department of Family and Geriatric Medicine at the University of Louisville, she taught from 2009 to 2013 at the University of Missouri Kansas City‘s Department of Biomedical and Health Informatics and held a clinical, teaching, and research post at Dartmouth Medical School from 1996 to 2009.
She is one of a mere handful of experts on the human papillomavirus (HPV) and one of the leading researchers in biomedical science. She has spent her life studying vaccines; she was the principle (lead) investigator of both HPV vaccines — Gardasil manufactured by Merck, Cervarix manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline — and has published the sentinel reports about the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine in The Lancet and The New England Journal of Medicine. She designed the clinical trials for the corporations.
As one of the few people and experts involved in putting this vaccine out, Dr. Harper did something very brave, just like Dr. Thompson did. She publicly countered the disinformation that was put forth by the corporation and its paid medical personnel, telling CBS news that, for the Gardasil vaccine, the “benefit is nothing,” and it will have no significant effect upon the rate of cancer in the USA.
Below is an interview with Harper that explores the business of vaccines and looks at how agencies like the FDA and and pharmaceutical corporations work together to expedite the process of putting drugs onto the market.The FDA was even recently caught manipulating media and science press.
It’s a very telling interview that provides information the general public never really hears about.
If You Asked Dr. Harper If You Should Vaccinate Your Child With the HPV Vaccine, What Would She Say?
She would tell you that of all the women who get an HPV infection, approximately 70% of them will clear that infection all by themselves in the first year. You don’t even have to detect it or treat it. Within two years, approximately 90% of those women will clear it all by themselves. By three years, 10% of that original group of women left will still have an HPV infection, and 5% of this 10% will have progressed into a pre-cancerous lesion. So, “now you have that small group of women who have pre-cancerous lesions and now let’s look at that moving into invasive carcinoma. What we know then is that amongst women with. . . [pre-cancerous] lesions. . . it takes five years for about 20% of them to become invasive carcinomas. That’s a pretty slow process. It takes about thirty years for 40% of them to become invasive cervical carcinomas.” (source)
This begs the question, why do nine-year old girls need vaccinations for symptomless venereal diseases that their immune systems kill anyway?
As the video above illustrates, it has never been shown to protect against actual cervical cancer.
“It is a vaccine that’s been highly marketed, the benefits are over-hyped, and the dangers are underestimated.”
– Dr. Chris Shaw, Professor at the University of British Columbia, in the department of Neuroscience, Ophthalmology, and Visual Sciences (Taken from the One More Girl documentary)
“When one looks at the independent literature, so studies which are not sponsored by the vaccine manufacturers, so with relation to Gardasil there have been several reports documenting multiple sclerosis and encephalitis, which is brain inflammation, in girls who have received their Gardasil vaccine. So just because a study sponsored by the manufacturers does not identify problems with the vaccine does not necessarily mean that the vaccine is safe. In fact if one looks at the manufacturer studies, they’re often not designed to detect serious adverse events. There was a study done by a group of researchers sponsored by Glaxo Smith and Kline and they were looking at Cervarix, which is another HPV vaccine, and the authors acknowledged that none of the studies that they evaluated have been designed to detect autoimmune diseases. So obviously, you’re not going to find what you’re not looking for. And in spite of these obvious flaws, they concluded that there is no evidence that Cervarix is associated with increased risk for autoimmune diseases, and this is absurd because you haven’t looked for it, the study has not been designed to detect autoimmune diseases.”
