  • 18 million people watched this Pharmaceutical propaganda, that I'm sure Oliver was paid for. Wakefield did not distort the data, big Pharma distorts the data.

  • If you don't ask the right questions you will not get the right answer. There was a desperate need to invent vaccines and they save lives but they did not test to see if there's any side effects long term. It's about money not need is why they give the shots all at the same time. It would cost a little more to spread it. And I'll talk to a lot of doctors who agree. If you don't ask why they don't spread them out just a few weeks for the body to recover from creating immune response. But people believe what they want to believe.

  • Chance of death from kvid is so low but with all this fear people will line up for the chemicals to be jabbed in. Trust your intuition more than your government. Vaccine companies have zero liability. They can kill your child and you are not allowed to sue them. Thanks to Ronald Reagan. Read the labels. Know the ingredients. Do some research.

    • @eeeaten I stand corrected, I had no idea you had a data base telling you personally how all the scientists in the world are standing with arms linked singing the praises of how America does vaccines, OH WAIT we are in the middle of a world wide pandemic, WITH THE WORLD'S HIGHEST RATE OF DEATH WELL DONE!! you know nothing about vaccines and have no intention of learning, hopefully you will get the brand new vaccine as usual contaminated with Mercury, Aluminum, Preservatives whatever animal protein they feel like mouse brain cells you go girl!!

    • @Tina Stanley again, the only way for 'the powers that be' to control what you hear is for them to control all scientists everywhere. if american science was corrupt, the science from other countries would disagree with it - that's not reality. the only way for your conspiracy story to be true is for it to involve all scientists and doctors around the world. you can call me names if you wish, but surely you realise it undermines your position. yes of course climate change is real. again, almost every scientists around the globe accepts it as fact. i guess you think that's a conspiracy too? is there any made up nonsense spread by youtube con-men and kooks that you _don't_ believe? what are my credentials? i'm a scientist and parent - of course i could make up anything, so what does it matter? please, look at your information sources. they are kooks, quacks and opportunist snake oilers. if you love to "dO rEseArCh" so much, check out the authors of the information you rely on.

    • @Tina Stanley thanks for the essays but this is antivax nonsense - you've been misled. surely you understand that watching youtube videos and facebook groups is not research? the only way your claim that 'big pharma' controls the doctors/science could be true is if they controlled ALL of the world's doctors and medical scientists. the science agrees - the risk of harm from vaccines is tiny compared to the risk of harm from the diseases they prevent. here are some of your information sources: john bergman - chiro quack how did you get it all so wrong? why are you putting your trust in snake oilers and opportunist businessmen?

I’m not antivax, I just hope medical science keeps an eye on brain development and ensure that adjustments are made if red flags are spotted. 🚩 Even if mercury free, think about what else could be in it.

  • “Too many shots too soon “and using that as an excuse to delay vaccines. Means that those kids aren’t being protected as soon as they could, and the result could be early death. Ironically the antivaxxers themselves were most likely vaccinated, because their parents were smarter than they are, so it’s their kids who have to take on the risks.

Bully, say "what about these guys", or what ever the 3 thing things that moron does to deflect responsibility. I watched a film, I saw the video of the change in infants before and after the multi vaccine injections. After there is (mostly) a fever and the kids are never the same. I'll send the video to you if you want. Real people, real heartache. In this case you drank the coolaid and your rant is unwarranted. I'll end by flattering your ego.

He had us kids vaccinated for small pox between the butt cheeks so we didn't have a scar on our arms.

  • I think you are wrong in this case ,although very funny. If I had a kid now I wouldn't give the kid multiple vaccines at once. The medical profession is great at doing what big Pharma tells them they need to do, but dreadful at reporting and documenting cases. I had a friend in LA who didn't get her twin vaccinated until they were 3 because of the anti vaccer crap in early 2000. Then she proceeded to give them a diet of tofu when they could eat food. They didn't get autism, but got something close because she didn't feed them animal protein when they were infants to toddlers. So much bad advice out. What wrong with pacing the shots if you can afford the doctor visits. And, by the way, what is causing all the autism?

More information was identified about it in the 1980s and 1990s and the spectrum increased.

    • @eeeaten - The worlds top autism expert! Dr Andrew Zimmerman: is a Pediatric Neurologist. He is considered a medical expert and previously known as being pro vaccine. Due to Zimmerman's expertise, the government used Andrew Zimmerman as their expert medical witness to testify in the Omnibus Autism Proceedings against the vaccine autism link. The Omnibus Autism Proceedings was created and was to take place in federal court because 5000 cases of vaccine induced autism were filed. In the proceedings, less than 10 cases were going to be heard. If all cases could be proven to have 0 link to the vaccines, the rest were to be dismissed. One of the cases to enter the proceedings was Hannah Poling. Hannah was given 5 different vaccines against 9 different viruses and regressed into and was diagnosed with autism afterwards. Her father, Jon Poling, was a neurologist at Johns Hopkins Hospital, and her mother, was a registered nurse and also lawyer. With Hannah's father's medical background and Andrew Zimmerman's background (also working at John Hopkins Hospital), the two looked into Hannah's case. It was discovered that Hannah was predisposed with a mitchocondrial disorder. This disorder was aggravated by the vaccines and lead to her regression. Andrew took this information and let the Department of Justice know that there were exceptions where vaccines can cause autism. With this coming to light, Dr Andrew Zimmerman was fired as their expert medical witness and was unable to testify in the remainder of cases. Hannah's case was also removed from the proceedings.

    • @eeeaten Discovered HIV...Nobel Prize...LOL Dr. Luc Montagnier: Montagnier, an established expert in virology, was approached in 1982 by Paris clinician Willy Rozenbaum to examine a new illness (AIDS). Rozenbaum and his colleague, virologist Françoise Brun-Vézinet, suspected the disease might be caused by a retrovirus - a viral RNA strand that corrupts existing DNA to its pattern - and within weeks Montagnier’s team found evidence of an active retrovirus in tissue from a patient’s lymph node Montagnier is the co-founder of the World Foundation for AIDS Research and Prevention and co-directs the Program for International Viral Collaboration. He is the founder and a former president of the Houston-based World Foundation for Medical Research and Prevention. He has received more than 20 major awards, including the National Order of Merit (Commander, 1986) and the Légion d'honneur (Knight: 1984; Officer: 1990; Commander: 1993; Grand Officer: 2009),[19][20] He is a recipient of the Lasker Award and the Scheele Award (1986), the Louis-Jeantet Prize for medicine (1986), the Gairdner Award (1987), the Golden Plate Award of the American Academy of Achievement (1987),[21] King Faisal International Prize (1993) (known as the Arab Nobel Prize), and the Prince of Asturias Award (2000). He is also a member of the Académie Nationale de Médecine.[22] Montagnier was awarded the honorary Doctor of Humane Letters (L.H.D.) from Whittier College in 2010.[23]

  • It's called Over Vaccination. This is a deluded narrative anti vs pro. This entire Autism epidemic is from Over Vaccination giving too many vaccines in one visit at the pediatrician. The MMR should not exist many countries banned that vaccine for safety. The conversation is never about safety or ingredients in vaccines it's always pro or anti to confuse and divide people. Oliver got 8 vaccines now kids get 38. So go ahead laugh at Millions of Autism children. Real funny topic John Oliver hilarious to see your kid get damaged...all time low in the media. Why is their a Vaccine Court leaving people with no legal protection for damages? The only medical malpractice with no legal protection. Why then if you are already rich and can afford an immensely expensive lawyer to win a difficult case in the "Vaccine Court" is all the information hidden from the public. Explain that funny guy why would information about vaccine damages be kept secret.

    • @G Hays your response to the facts is that they're just not true? i don't think categorizing kids once labelled ID as autistics is patronizing at all, it's a more accurate diagnosis that enables people to access specific help. the schools see more of these kids because they are mainstreamed rather than locked up in hospitals, asylums and ID communities. the truth is quite the opposite of what you're saying. the fact is that there has been a ton of science dedicated to seeing if vaccines cause autism, and the science from around the world shows they don't. rather than barking up this empty tree maybe you should take a look at the opportunistic businessmen trying to tell you they do.

    • @eeeaten That is not true, don't you think that would be patronizing. The only factor is they combined Aspergers and Autism together but the numbers are still skyrocketing. If you are responding you read the comment thanks. Don't let people mock parents of special need children and keep talking about these issues before everyone is afraid too. Watch the numbers ask a teacher what they see at their school. The Administrators, Principals and Teachers are all quite aware of the huge increase because they lack support services. If we start mocking and patronizing parents of special need children our country will become fascist. The worst countries in history mocked people that were suffering it's a way to avoid the subject and conversation. Thanks

    • @G Hays but there is an answer to the 'autism epidemic'. we used to diagnose autistics as intellectually disabled, but now we call them autistic.

      eeeateneeeaten10 days ago
    • @G Hays "by someone that is connected to politicians." this gives absolutely no credibility to it at all. If you want to debate a scientific point you need scientific knowlege and politicians not only don't have that as what they have is a lot of reasons to lie. "Then completely different immediately after MMR", the signs of autism are comum to start showing in the same time frame that is indicated to the vaccine and, even when multiple studies show that there is no evidence, people just want to believe that "if two things happen in sequence one caused the other" which is false. "if it's not vaccines what is the cause of Autism the epidemic continues to increase with no answer." Maybe it is pollution in the water and in the food as the legislations who protect against it are being weakened by (guess what?) politicians. Maybe it is as simple as today we are more able to identify it then we were in the past and that is what mak it seems like a epidemic. Or even maybe is something tha we don't have knowlege about yet and still need to research. However accusing something with no evidence will not bring anything but harm, as is made clear by the return of diseases like measles.

    • @NoMoon777 It's not a hunch when you give a kid say five vaccines in a doctor visit at the age of two doesn't that seem hazardous. I have a child that was damaged from the MMR was ahead in all aspects language and coordination. Then completely different immediately after MMR. So I respect your question but do better than this. Don't support Comedians making a mockery of the Autism epidemic that is sadistic. I also was told inside information regarding this showing the vaccine increase timeline and autism increase timeline are identical by someone that is connected to politicians. So please keep inquiring and if it's not vaccines what is the cause of Autism the epidemic continues to increase with no answer. At the very least be respectful and ask questions. Big Pharma has more influence in Washington D.C. than any other lobby group considering that why would you trust a corrupted conflict of interest. Big Pharma also controls media through sponsors so these hosts have to comply with a certain narrative or get fired. With such a huge problem emerging with Autistic children why wouldn't their be the biggest inquiry possible?

  • I didn't vaccinate my youngest son on schedule because he wasn't going to become autistic. He will be 30 next month. He is autistic. So delaying or not vaccinating does NOT prevent autism.

  • I wonder. Is there anything else that may cause autism other than vaccines? ... Corona virus is changing how science is conducted: More people, more peer review (though less qualified on both fronts). The research shows the elderly are far more susceptible than the youth...therefore I WILL NOT vaccinate my children, but I may yet vaccinate myself...time will tell.

  • For several years, until April of this year, I had been lecturing nationally to health professionals about the great vaccine hoax. Attending one such seminar was a board member of an association of health professionals, who invited me to speak on this subject at their national conference. I did, and had 90 minutes to present the most salient points from my 12-hour seminar. It caused quite a stir, andseveral clinicians thanked me for having the courage to speak the truth about this controversial subject.Later that day, I sat on a panel of four experts to answer questions from conference attendees. Many of the questions were directed at the PhD immunologist on the panel, asking if the statements I had made in the morning presentation were true. To my surprise, the immunologist confirmed every assertion I had made.The first was that it is pointless to administer drugs intended to stimulate antibody production to babies who are too young to produce antibodies. Infants in their first year mostly depend on generalized, non-specific immunity, including (hopefully) immunoglobulins from breast milk, to protect their young bodies from infection. They do not produce antibodies of their own until about age one. Despite this basic fact, the medical establishment insists administering a total of 19 shots, containing 24 vaccines, to infants on the 2, 4 and 6 month pediatric visits (Source: Somehow, the basic facts of human physiology and development do not apply to vaccines.You can listen to anaudiofile of an exchange between an attendee and the immunologist about this question. She declined to be identified in my presentations, including this post, perhaps because she knows that anyone who speaks the truth about vaccines is savaged by the medical establishment and their compliant lapdogs in the mainstream media. It is professional suicide for anyone in conventional medicine to question the unquestionable (yet unproven) assumptions about vaccines: that they are effective, safe and necessary. I have stopped lecturing publicly on this subject for the same reason, because the attacks in recent years have become particularly vicious; and because my main message in my teachings is about personal responsibility, innate wholeness and opening to the largeness of who we are, not just vaccines.Here’s the transcript of this shocking exchange:Q. So the science seems fairly clear that for the first year of life, probably, that the immunization is not stimulating the kind of response we expect it to stimulate.A. True.Q. So what’s the rationale for continuing to do that if it’s not doing what it’s supposed to be [doing]? A. The vaccines are given at pediatric wellness visits, and the idea is that you are training the parent to bring their child in at all the pediatric wellness visits, and that it’s only the year visit that actually is truly important. But that for most parents you are not going to get them to bring their kid in if they don’t come in at two months, four months, and six months. And so it’s actually more of a training thing.It’s interesting, I was on the phone with [?] county public health last week, with one of their vaccine nurses. She was like, ‘Oh, you’re talking about vaccines? Make sure you tell them they have to do that year shot because the first three [the 2, 4 and 6 month shots] don’t work.’ I was like, ‘Yeah, I know.’ [laughter].Now, the person speaking here is not some kid with a blog. This is an impeccably-credentialed, pro-vaccine PhD immunologist. She knows more about the detailed intracies of human immunology than I ever will. I have great respect for her, and her decades of dedicated work in this field. And I was so glad I was sitting right next to her as she confirmed what I and others have been saying for years.Though I am not lecturing anymore publicly on the vaccine scam, I have a recording of the seminaravailable, with slides, notes, articles, etc., if you are interested in more on this subject.Let’s muster the courage to question the Unquestionable Vaccine Assumptions

It’s not the job of the government to treat adults like children they have the rights to make their own medical decisions. Though schools and businesses should have the right to refuse employment to keep their workplace safe.

  • Abstract The autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA), presented by Shoenfeld and Agmon-Levin in 2011, is an entity that incorporates diverse autoimmune conditions induced by the exposure to various adjuvants. Adjuvants are agents that entail the capability to induce immune reactions. Adjuvants are found in many vaccines and used mainly to increase the response to vaccination in the general population. Silicone has also been reported to be able to induce diverse immune reactions. Clinical cases and series of heterogeneous autoimmune conditions including systemic sclerosis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and rheumatoid arthritis have been reported to be induced by several adjuvants. However, only a small number of cases of autoimmune thyroid disorder have been included under the umbrella of ASIA syndrome. Indeed, clinical cases of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and/or subacute thyroiditis were observed after the exposure to vaccines as well as silicone implantation. In our review, we aimed to summarize the current knowledge on ASIA syndrome presented as endocrinopathies, focusing on autoimmune thyroid disorders associated with the various adjuvants. Keywords: autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants, thyroid, endocrinopathy, adjuvants, vaccines, silicone, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Graves disease

  • Thimerosol is a compound that has a mercury atom in it. Not the same thing. Look at Sodium and Chlorine for instance. Pure Sodium will explode when exposed to moisture. Chlorine is toxic, and we use it to disinfect our pools. Put them together and you get Sodium Chloride, AKA Salt, an important substance to sustain life. The fact that it's in a compound makes a HUGE difference. Chemistry sure is interesting isn't it?
