Paul OffitPosted 8 years ago under Uncategorized
Dr. Paul Offit may be the most widely quoted promoter, defender and apologist for the vaccine industry today. Known for his “RotaTeq” rotavirus vaccine (and its patent) and his knowledge about immune response, Offit was honored with award by the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases and recognized by the illustrious Bill Gates during one of Gates’ global health projects to vaccinate the whole world; a.k.a. “Living Proof.” Paul Offit is the Director of the Vaccine Education Center at a children’s hospital in Philadelphia. The CDC recommends Offit’s rotavirus vaccine (for infants); however, auspiciously, Offit is also a founding advisory board member of the Autism Science Foundation. Autism has been linked to the MMR (measles/mumps/rubella) vaccine by Whistleblower vaccine scientist from the CDC, Dr. William Thompson himself in a stunning confession. Paul Offit is also the author of a sketchy medical narrative: “Autism’s False Prophets.”
In 2008, the program “Every Child by Two” and Dr. Paul Offit received hundreds of thousands of dollars in funding from Pharmaceutical companies that manufacture vaccines. They claim this has no influence on their vaccine “safety” stance, but this has been exposed otherwise by reliable journalists. (1) There is missing information on just how much Offit profited from the sale of his invention of a Rotavirus vaccine (that’s never even been proven to work), but estimates are between $30 and $55 million of the 150 million dollar deal that was struck. (2)
According to an investigation by Age of Autism, Dr. Paul Offit of the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP is now their nickname), took home a fortune from the sale of CHOP, which had worldwide royalty interest in the Merck Rotateq vaccine. Offit’s former position on the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices then comes into question, as his job description entailed creating the market for rotavirus vaccine; basically “voting himself rich” in the process. This is the same shill and vaccine promotor/orator who says he could get 10,000 vaccines at once and be fine. There is a connection in all of this. Dr. William Thompson’s admission of scientific fraud at the CDC that lead to African American boys under age three getting autism from MMR II vaccine was also recently revealed via Alternative News, but the mass media refused to cover it. Remember, while reading this confession, the name of Offit’s medical narrative is coincidentally, “Every Child by Two.”
Here’s a portion of Dr. Thompson’s (MMR vaccine – autism connection) confession:
“My name is William Thompson. I am a Senior Scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, where I have worked since 1998. I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR II vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed.” (3) Paul Offit’s profits from Merck’s Rotateq revenues are based on his role as a listed inventor on the cluster of patents that protect Merck’s vaccine and thus share title, in other words, functioning as jointly owned patents by CHOP and Wistar Institute. The extreme conflicts of interest are astounding here. Back in 2005, the Wistar Institute sold its royalty interest in Rotateq to Paul Capital – so everything comes full circle, with the spike in autism rates so high and Merck’s contracts with the government that assure “95% efficacy.” It’s possible Paul Offit created the market for his own vaccine “intervention” and solely for profit. There are many ethical and even legal questions at play.
Is the market for mandated childhood vaccines created by Paul Offit?
In a single vote, the ACIP, or Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, can create a commercial market for a new vaccine worth hundreds of millions. This is not possible with most patented products, but then again, vaccines are not like “most” products. For example, after the ACIP approved Offit’s and Merck’s Rotateq vaccine to the official “childhood vaccination schedule,” Merck’s Rotateq revenue rose from nothing to over $650 million within a couple of years (2006 – 2008) (Dial it back to 1998 until 2003 and Offit was a “member” of ACIP). Since three doses of Rotateq cost about $200 and about four million infants and children are “mandated” to get it each year, do the math. To this day Offit still refuses to confirm how much money he made and to bury this conflict of interest and continue to only say he is a pediatrician in interviews represents ethics breaches right and left. It completely discredits the medical papers he writes about immune response and vaccine safety.
Now compare the ingredients of Rotavirus Rotateq vaccine and the MMR II vaccines (in question): Here is the list of ingredients in Offit’s invention – the Rotateq vaccine, as listed verbatum on the Merck website:
5 live rotavirus strains (G1, G2, G3, G4, and P1). Sucrose, sodium citrate, sodium phosphate monobasic monohydrate, sodium hydroxide, polysorbate 80 and also fetal bovine serum. Parts of porcine circovirus (a virus that infects pigs) types 1 and 2 have been found in RotaTeq. (5)
Disclaimer: “RotaTeq is an oral vaccine used to help prevent rotavirus infection in children. Rotavirus infection can cause fever, vomiting, and diarrhea that can be severe and can lead to loss of body fluids (dehydration), hospitalization and even death in some children.”
More disclaimer: “What are the possible side effects of RotaTeq?” “The most common side effects reported after taking RotaTeq were diarrhea, vomiting, fever, runny nose and sore throat, wheezing or coughing, and ear infection. Call your child’s doctor or go to the emergency department right away if your child has any of the following problems after getting RotaTeq, even if it has been several weeks since the last dose because these may be signs of a serious problem called intussusception; bad vomiting, bad diarrhea, severe stomach pain, blood in the stool. Intussusception happens when a part of the intestine gets blocked or twisted. Since FDA approval, reports of infants with intussusception following RotaTeq have been received by the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS). Intussusception occurred days and sometimes weeks after vaccination. Some infants needed hospitalization, surgery on their intestines, or a special enema to treat this problem. Death due to intussusception (9) has occurred. A study conducted after approval of RotaTeq showed an increased risk of intussusception in the 21 days after the first dose of RotaTeq, but especially in the first 7 days. Other reported side effects include: • allergic reactions, which may be severe and may include face and mouth swelling, difficulty breathing, wheezing, hives, and/or skin rash; and • Kawasaki disease (a serious condition that can affect the heart; symptoms may include fever, rash, red eyes, red mouth, swollen glands, swollen hands and feet and, if not treated, death can occur). Call your doctor right away if your child has any side effects that concern you or seem to get worse. These are NOT all the possible side effects of RotaTeq. You can ask your doctor for a more complete list.”
And here are the ingredients in the MMR II vaccine per Merck’s site:
Active Ingredients: weakened forms of the measles, mumps, and rubella viruses. Inactive Ingredients: sorbitol, sodium phosphate, potassium phosphate, sucrose, sodium chloride, hydrolyzed gelatin, recombinant human albumin, fetal bovine serum, other buffer and media ingredients, neomycin.
MMR II vaccine ingredients: (6)
Then review this research from Natural Health News: Vaccine ingredients and their adverse effects:
Sorbitol: Synthetic sweetener which metabolizes very slowly and aggravates IBS and gastrointestinal issues.
Fetal bovine cow serum: Extracted from cow skin. When injected causes connective tissue disorders, arthritis and lupus; also shortness of breath, low blood pressure, chest pain and skin reactions.
Sodium chloride: Raises blood pressure and inhibits muscle contraction and growth
Hydrolyzed Gelatin: Derived from the collagen inside animals’ skin and bones. Injecting gelatin poses the risk of infection from synthetic growth hormones and BSE infectivity (mad cow disease).
Egg protein: Vaccines are prepared in eggs (certainly not organic). May contain growth hormones, antibiotics, and salmonella bacteria.
Thimerosal: A neurotoxic mercury which causes autism: There are 25 mcg in one average flu vaccine, and the EPA safety limit is 5 micrograms, so children who are vaccinated simultaneously with multiple* vaccines receive over 10 times the safety limit of mercury in one day.
Human albumin: The protein portion of blood from pooled human venous plasma; when injected causes fever, chills, hives, rash, headache, nausea, breathing difficulty, and rapid heart rate. Injecting “pooled blood” can result in a loss of body cell mass and cause immunodeficiency virus infection, or contain SV40, AIDS, cancer or Hepatitis B from drug addicts. (6)
All of this evidence, as admitted by whistleblowers (7) and actual verified science research, gives good rhyme and reason to Offit’s nickname “Offit-for-Profit.” It’s no wonder Paul Offit advocates all things vaccines while perched on top of a cozy financial relationship with the vaccine industry kingpins, all while discreetly holding a patent on a Merck vaccine for diarrhea that causes severe diarrhea as one of the most common side effects. This seems to be a very sinister way of guaranteeing the vaccine’s continued use and a multi-million dollar royalty stream. Offit has made quite a name for himself as one of the most aggressive jab-pushers in America, despite all of these gross conflicts of “special” interest.
Dr. Paul Offit Investigated and Revealed by Sharyl Attkisson (former CBS News Correspondent)
“An investigative report by former CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson uncovered that Offit, the Academy of Pediatrics and “Every Child By Two,” three entities that actively promote vaccines, all take money from vaccine companies. The Academy, she found, has accepted millions of dollars from Wyeth (now Pfizer) and Sanofi Aventis for grants, conferences, medical education classes and even building construction.” (8)
Attkisson reveals that the treasurers of the aforementioned group “Every Child by Two” that promotes early immunization for children, includes an official from Wyeth (Pfizer) and a pharmaceutical industry advisor. It is important to note that Offit has also been exposed for holding a research chair at his Children’s Hospital funded by Merck & Co., to the tune of $1.5 million.
