(NaturalNews) The Institute of Medicine, which has long functioned as a front group for the pharmaceutical industry and receives tens of millions of dollars in annual funding from drug companies and global elitists (like Bill Gates, Ted Turner, etc.), has issued a report that declares the MMR vaccine is not linked to autism. This is now being widely reported in the conventional (controlled) media, which isn’t telling you the real story behind this report.

What’s the real story? That this IOM report, even though it goes out of its way to excuse vaccines and dismiss safety concerns, still openly admits that vaccines cause measles, febrile seizures, anaphylactic shock and other potentially fatal side effects. It also admits that other vaccines are linked to a whole host of bizarre side effects, including skin lesions, difficulty breathing and live virus infections (see complete list, below).

Furthermore, the conclusion that “vaccines do not cause autism” is erroneous, as the IOM did not interview even a single parent of an autistic child and did not conduct a medical review of any autistic children whatsoever. Instead, the IOM claims to have reviewed thousands of vaccine papers published in conventional medical journals — yes, the very same medical journals that are practically run by pharmaceutical interests and have been caught publishing “scientific” articles that were really fraudulently ghostwritten by drug company hacks. (…)

In layman’s terms, this is what’s known as a “scientific circle jerk” where one group of bought-off scientists quotes another group of bought-off scientists as “authorities” even though they all parrot the same medical quackery of their masters — the pharmaceutical companies.

Predictably, the old dinosaur media spins the report into a complete lie

Regardless of the fact that the IOM report found a long list of side effects to be “convincingly” linked to vaccines (which is remarkable, given the IOM’s pro-vaccine slant, as revealed below), the mainstream media went out of its way to twist the story around and declare vaccines are perfectly safe!

Forbes Magazine, which has long been a zombie mouthpiece for pharmaceutical business interests, ran with the headline, “Report Finds Few Side Effects For Vaccines.” (Not true. The report actually found an alarming number of side effects for vaccines.)

The Sydney Morning Herald, the pro-pharma quack rag of Australia, declared “Vaccine gets another clean bill of health, but no one is listening.” (A total and deliberate lie by a newspaper that maliciously lies to its Australian readers on a regular basis.)

NPR, which no one even expects to honestly report a story anymore, declared, “Report: Vaccines Are Safe, Hazards Few And Far Between.” Voice of America parroted, “US Study: Vaccines are Safe.” (Again, a complete fabrication. Did they even read the IOM’s report?)

The trouble, of course, is that all these headlines are really more like headLIES. They fail to report what the IoM actually published in its own conclusions, and even that is a distorted version of the truth of how dangerous vaccines really are. But it surprises no one to see conventional media — the presstitutes — covering up the crimes of the deadly vaccine industry. They’re all in this together, of course. It’s the pharma interests that buy a significant portion of the advertising which keeps these rags in business, and if they actually told the truth about the dangers of drugs and vaccines, drug companies would pull their ads and many of these media outlets would simply collapse into financial insolvency (which is actually what they deserve, given that they only serve their corporate masters and contribute nothing to the people of society).

So they keep parroting the lies of Big Pharma and the distortions of the IoM, which as you will soon see, is an entirely untrustworthy organization that has a history of being involved in illegal medical experiments and crimes against humanity, including having its members play a role in the illegal syphilis medical experiments on Guatemalan prisoners.

A brief history of the Institute of Medicine

The IoM is the same group, you may recall, that recently issued an utterly false and misleading report on vitamin D, claiming that people should take no more than 600 IUs of vitamin D a day. It then went on to warn people against “megadosing” on vitamin D, thereby contributing to the ongoing vitamin D deficiencies that are the main cause of cancer in America today. (…)

(In truth, most people need 10,000 IUs of vitamin D a day just to maintain healthy levels.)

This was all part of the 2010 report called, “Dietary Reference Intakes for Calcium and Vitamin D” in which the IoM utter failed to find any link whatsoever between vitamin D and cancer (huh?), and then reluctantly admitted that vitamin D may have something to do with bone health, but nothing more. This is a classic example of total pseudoscientific quackery being put out to promote nutritional deficiencies so that the pharmaceutical industry can rake in more profits. (…)

Remember, Big Pharma is a huge financial supporter of the IoM. Full details on the IoM’s financial ties will shortly be reported here on NaturalNews, where you will learn that individuals like Margaret Hamburg, the head of the criminal FDA, personally gave the IoM more than $100,000. (So did Bill Gates, Ted Turner and others.)

The IoM is also the same group that declared Agent Orange was safe for U.S. veterans who fought in Vietnam. In nearly every report it has issued over the years, the IoM has pushed a pro-pharma agenda while denying the reality of dangerous chemicals. Yet, somehow, the IoM is widely quoted by the old media (the dinosaur media, the presstitutes) as if it were a “scientific” organization reaching “scientific” conclusions, independent of industry influence.

Didn’t any of the presstitutes actually check who funds the IoM? Of course not. The age of old media journalists actually asking intelligent questions has long faded into history. Now, they simply vomit up whatever disinfo they’ve been spoon fed by the establishment, and they rely on the gullibility of their fluoridated, mind-numbed readers to buy whatever propaganda they’re spewing.

The IoM’s role in criminal, government-run human medical experiments

The IoM, by the way, was also directly involved in the criminal medical experiments conducted on Guatemalan prisoners, a “dark chapter” of conventional medical history that came to light in late 2010 (…).

When the truth about these experiments became known (oops! Somebody found out!), President Obama was forced to issue a public apology and organize an investigation. He appointed the Institute of Medicine — a “prestigious” organization, if you can believe that — to lead the investigation.

But the IoM had to recuse itself from the investigation, admitting that some of its own people were the same people who conducted the illegal medical experiments while working for the NIH. The Guatemalan medical experiments, you see, were a U.S. government funded operation conducted under the NIH, and the IoM has strong financial ties to the government, receiving as much as 64.9% of its funding from government sources (details on that to be published here on NaturalNews shortly).

This was all admitted in a published paper called “U.S. reviews human trial participant protections.” (The Lancet, Volume 376, Issue 9757, Pages 1975 – 1976, Dec. 11, 2010).

This paper declares, “In a sign of just how thoroughly enmeshed in medical establishment approval the Guatemala study was, the IoM had to decline the assignment, citing “overlapping appointments” in the 1940s between individuals on an IoM subcommittee and the NIH Study Section on Syphilis. The fact-finding task has now been transferred to the bioethics committee.” (…)62247-7/fulltext)

This was also reported in Jerry Leonards Public Health Alert (, in a special article covering the CDC Tuskegee experiments and ongoing biowarfare research being conducted covertly by the U.S. government and its various “medical” front groups (NIH, IoM, CDC, NCI, etc.)

Read the full report from Jerry Leonards at:…

So keep all this in mind about the history of the IoM when you read its paper on vaccines. We’re talking about an organization that promotes nutritional deficiencies, that utterly ignores the solid science on disease prevention with nutrition, and that was so deeply involved in the illegal, government-run medical experiments on Guatemalan prisoners that it had to remove itself from the bioethics investigative committee appointed to investigate the matter. The word “ethics” doesn’t even belong in the same paragraph as the Institute of Medicine.

The IoM is also largely funded by both military government interests (including funds from the Department of Defense, which we will explain later), pharmaceutical interests (it takes money from all the top Big Pharma companies) and top global elitists like Bill Gates who are openly calling for the use of vaccines to “reduce world population by 10 to 15 percent.” (…)

Today, this same pharmaceutically prostituted organization that lied to the nation about vitamin D has issued its report called “Adverse Effects of Vaccines: Evidence and Causality”.

Let’s see what this report really says:

What the IOM report on vaccines reveals about deadly vaccines

To begin, you can download and view the entire report yourself at:…

Here are several important things you need to know about this report — things that none of the mainstream presstitutes will dare tell you:

#1 – The IOM vaccine report was reviewed by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation as well as a military weapons manufacturer

On page 8 of the report, you will see that it was reviewed by Chris Wilson from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, a vaccine front group that openly pushes for global population reduction through vaccines and infertility technologies (…).

Secondly, this IOM report was reviewed by Sam Shekar from the military defense contractor Northrop Grumman, a weapons manufacturer and military technology engineering company that received a $5 billion grant from the CDC to run a vaccine information technology program (which will likely be used to track vaccine recipients in much the same way that IBM sold its technology to the Nazi regime in World War II to track Jewish prisoners as they were hauled off to concentration camps). (…)

#2 – The IOM conducted NO NEW STUDIES for this report

Instead, it was merely a compilation of 12,000 existing vaccines studies published in all the corrupt mainstream medical journals which are pro-vaccine propaganda rags that routinely engage in bribery, corruption, fraudulent science and the ghost writing of fraudulent “scientific papers” that were really written by Big Pharma propagandists (…).

The British Medical Journal in particular has been widely discredited over its fictitious and provably false allegations against Dr. Andrew Wakefield (…).

The IoM, however, took all the medical journals are honest, trustworthy sources! …even though we know conventional medical journals are the epitome of modern pharmaceutical quackery parading around as science. For the IoM to use medical journals as “sources” for any study is sort of like police departments hiring convicted felons to be detectives.

All of us know very well that relying on the conventional medical industry’s own studies as a source of information about the dangers of the conventional medical industry’s own products is just flat-out stupid. If you’re going to have an honest assessment of the dangers of vaccines, you don’t use the for-profit vaccine industry as your source of information! The medical journals, as we all know, are utterly corrupted and controlled by the drug companies that manufacture and sell all these vaccines in the first place. Nearly all conventional medical journals are packed with drug company ads that provide the bulk of the funding for their operations.

So it makes no difference that the IoM claims to have reviewed “12,000 studies.” Most of those 12,000 studies are still slanted propaganda pieces because they were funded by the vaccine companies and published by what are essentially “vaccine journals” that promote the interests of vaccine companies. The IoM might as well claim it looked at a “gajillion studies!”

If you really want to find out what vaccines cause in children, you need to go talk to the parents of autistic children — something that Dr. Andrew Wakefield did, much to the horror of the medical establishment which then went out of its way to utterly defame and denigrate Dr. Wakefield for daring to suggest that vaccines might produce harmful gastrointestinal effects. (Dr. Wakefield, for the record, has never suggested that vaccines cause autism. That allegation is a total piece of fiction invented by the medical establishment and the old media presstitutes.)

The IoM, for the record, did not talk to a single child or a single parent as part of this entire review (see below). And there is absolutely no indication that the IoM has any intention whatsoever to ever talk to any parent of an autistic child and gather reliable information from the people directly impacted by this neurological disorder which seems to happen to many children right after being vaccinated.

#3 – The IOM study openly admits it did not consider the “benefits” of vaccines at all

The old media is widely reporting that this IOM report proves vaccines are “safe” and “effective,” and yet the IOM openly states that its report didn’t assess vaccine benefits at all.

“We were not charged with assessing the benefits of vaccines, with weighing benefits and costs, or with deciding how, when, and to whom vaccines should be administered. The committee was not charged with making vaccine policy,” says Ellen Wright Clayton of the Chair Committee to Review Adverse Effects of Vaccines.

The report itself says, “The 2009 H1N1 influenza vaccine is covered by the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program, and evidence about its safety is not covered in this report.” (Yeah, no kidding, because its safety record is so atrocious that opening that can of worms would destroy their whole argument that vaccines have few side effects…)

Influenza vaccines are the most dangerous vaccines of all, having been proven to actually promote influenza and weaken immune defenses against future infections (…). That’s why every winter, the vast majority of people who catch the flu are the very same people who were vaccinated against the flu!

(Most flu deaths occur in people who received flu vaccinations. There’s another little factoid the old dinosaur media will never — never! — put into print.)

#4 – The IoM admits it did not have accurate data

In the introduction to the report, the IoM openly admits it simply doesn’t have enough data to accurately assess the totality of vaccine adverse reactions.

“…we learned some lessons that may be of value for future efforts to evaluate vaccine safety. One is that some issues simply cannot be resolved with currently available epidemiologic data…” says the report.

In another bit of twisted logic, the IoM effectively admits that many vaccine side effects are simply blamed on the “natural infection.” Read the following statement from the IoM and note how it makes absolutely no sense and yet is somehow trying to shift blame away from vaccines:

“Some adverse events caused by vaccines are also caused by the natural infection. These effects often cannot be detected by epidemiologic methods, which typically cannot distinguish between the adverse events that are caused by the vaccine itself and the decrease in adverse events due to the decreased rate of natural infection.”

#5 – The IoM openly admits it threw out all data covering long-term adverse events

All the conclusions of the IoM are based entirely on short-term adverse reactions from single vaccines. The IoM’s report in no way considered long-term adverse reactions or the cumulative effects of multiple vaccines compromising the immune system or nervous system.

In fact, the IoM admits in its report that “Case descriptions that did not have the three basic elements described above were not considered in the mechanistic weight-of-evidence assessments.” One of those three elements was a “specified and reasonable time interval (i.e., temporality or latency) between vaccination and symptoms.” But the IoM failed to define this “temporality,” stating that “What constitutes reasonable latency will vary across vaccines and across adverse events.”

This means the IoM could simply throw out any evidence it wanted by claiming the latency was too long between the vaccine injection and the appearance of side effects. If autism kicks in 15 days after a vaccine injection, for example, the IoM could simply disregard it. If a child suffered neurological damage following a vaccine but the doctor reporting the adverse effects did not note how many hours transpired between the vaccine shot and the onset of neurological symptoms, that data was also thrown out.

This is how modern medical “science” — which is really just for-profit quackery — always seems to engineer the study results it wants. It simply throws out all the data that doesn’t fit its pre-determined conclusions! Or, in the case of pharma researchers who work for Merck and Pfizer, they just fabricate whatever data they want and then get that published in the mainstream medical journals (…).

#6 – The IoM study still admits that vaccines cause infectious disease!

This is the truly amazing part about all this. The old dinosaur media (presstitutes run by globalists) is widely reporting this IoM story as if it declares vaccines to be safe. And yet they haven’t even read the report! Because on page 574, this IoM report directly declares that MMR vaccines cause measles! It describes the evidence as “convincingly supports” and says the mechanistic assessment is “strong.”

The real conclusions of the Institute of Medicine report on vaccine adverse reactions

Here are some of the other conclusions of the IOM’s report, which the old dinosaur media outright refuses to tell you because they are all controlled by pharmaceutical interests:

• MMR vaccine is “convincingly” linked to causing measles. (Just as we told you here on NaturalNews, the vaccine is what’s causing the disease.)

• MMR vaccine is “convincingly” linked to causing febrile seizure, just as we also reported here on NaturalNews.

• MMR vaccine is “convincingly” linked to causing anaphylaxis, a life-threatening allergic reaction that can result in death within minutes. This is what kills many young children who are injected with MMR vaccines.

• MMR vaccine is likely linked to causing transient arthralgia in women and children.

• Varicella vaccine is “convincingly” linked to causing Disseminated Oka VZV, a viral disease (Varicella Zoster Virus) which causes skin lesions and can also infect the lungs and brain. The fact that this vaccine is causing VZV infections is proof that the vaccines contain live viruses!

• Varicella vaccine is “convincingly” linked to causing Vaccine Strain Viral Reactivation, meaning the vaccine contains live viruses that are reactivated in the human host, multiplying and causing widespread infections.

• Varicella vaccine is “convincingly” linked to causing anaphylaxis, the life-threatening allergic reaction mentioned above.

• The influenza vaccine is “convincingly” linked to causing anaphylaxis, which is why influenza vaccines have killed so many children (…).

• The influenza vaccine likely causes Oculorespiratory Syndrome, a vaccine reaction described as causing “bilateral conjunctivitis, facial edema, and upper respiratory symptoms.” Once again, this is proof that the vaccine itself is dangerous to humans.

• The Hepatitis B vaccine is “convincingly” linked to causing anaphylaxis.

• The HPV vaccine (for cervical cancer) is also likely linked to causing anaphylaxis.

• The TT (Tetanus Toxoid) vaccine is also likely linked to causing anaphylaxis.

• The Meningo-Coccal vaccine is “convincingly” linked to causing anaphylaxis.

• Vaccine injections (of all kinds) are “convincingly” linked to causing Deltoid Bursitis (severe pain and swelling at the injection sight) and Syncope (loss of consciousness). These are no doubt caused by the toxic chemical adjuvants which are added to vaccines to invoke an immune reaction. These adjuvants are known neurotoxins (…).

Not surprisingly, this IoM report completely threw out any links between vaccines and:

• Guillain-Barre Syndrome

• Multiple Sclerosis

• Chronic Inflammatory Disseminated Polyneuropathy

• Asthma Exacerbation

• Autism

• Lupus

• Type-1 diabetes

• Rheumatoid arthritis

• Autoimmune hepatitis

• Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

• Fibromyalgia

• Meningitis

• Myocardial Infarction

• Infantile spasms

• Optic neuritis

• Bell’s Palsy

• Arthropathy

• Encephalopathy

• Transverse myelitis

• Sudden Infant Death Syndrome

These were thrown out based on a “lack of sufficient evidence,” says the IoM. But remember: It’s only sources of evidence were the corrupt, quacked-out medical journals! Relying on medical journals to accurately report vaccine side effects is sort of like relying on the Federal Reserve to accurately report what it’s doing with all the bailout money it keeps printing. It’s all one grand orgy of secrecy and corruption constructed for the sole purpose of pushing a globalist control agenda.

Anyone with even a hint of human intelligence knows that the conventional medical industry is not a good source of information for determining the dangers of the products manufactured and sold by the conventional medical industry! Only a fool — or a mainstream media journalist — would even believe such a thing.

Dealing with complaints about homeopathy websites

Dealing with complaints about homeopathy websites

Alternative medicineSince 1 March we’ve received a large number of complaints about claims on homeopathy websites, mostly about claims for the efficacy of homeopathy in diagnosing, treating or helping certain health or medical conditions (e.g. arthritis).

The high volume of complaints and the number of marketers we need to work with means we’ve taken a different approach to our normal investigation process. We’re now dealing with the complaints as part of a wider investigation project.

We don’t play a numbers game – we can act on just one complaint. So we don’t need to receive further complaints about homeopathy websites in order to act.

What’s happening now?

We’ve told marketers of homeopathic treatments and services about whom we’ve received a complaint to remove marketing claims that refer to, or imply, the efficacy of homeopathy for treating or helping specific health conditions. This is because the ASA considers there is insufficient robust scientific evidence to support these claims.

Here are the letters that we sent to owners of homeopathy websites. The first letter is a general introductory letter that explains who we are, why we have contacted them and what they need to do next. The second letter was sent for further clarification following questions that were raised by homeopaths and the third letter seeks assurances from the advertiser that they will remove problem claims from their website.

We are now monitoring these websites to see whether the necessary changes have been made. This will help to inform the nature and scope of any future action we may take. In the meantime, we won’t be contacting the owners of any other websites that are brought to our attention. But we will retain their website details for future compliance initiatives, if we consider such action to be necessary. More information about our compliance work can be found on our website and the CAP website.

We’re taking the complaints we’ve received seriously and we’re pleased that we’re already seeing evidence of website owners amending claims and contacting us for advice. This is encouraging and represents good progress.

We will also produce some guidance for website owners, which we will publicise shortly, to help them to comply with the rules. If you are a marketer of homeopathy products or services and want to receive notification of this advice please sign up for the Insight newsletter.

Finally, please note that this entire process is likely to take some time, especially given the number of businesses involved in the sector.

Already made a complaint?

Because of the different approach we’re taking on this occasion, you won’t hear from us again. But please be assured that we’re acting on your concerns. If our July monitoring exercise indicates a continuing problem, we may take further action at a later date. You don’t need to contact us again for this to happen.

Seen a problem? What should you do?

We don’t need further complaints to complete this process. We’re already working hard to address the issues raised by complainants. It’s important to note that sending us additional complaints on the same topic is most unlikely to alert us to new issues and it can have the unintended consequence of slowing down our work.

Any complaints we do receive may not be responded to directly, but may instead be referred to our compliance team in the event that wider compliance initiatives in this sector are considered necessary.
