[SaneVax: When will the FDA and CDC understand medical consumers want answers to their questions about vaccine safety – not public relations sound bites – scientifically proven and validated answers. It should not fall on the shoulders of medical consumers to prove or disprove the claims of safety made by the vaccine manufacturers. Why are these taxpayer sponsored agencies not willing to perform the job they are paid to do?]
Gardasil and aluminum vaccine adjuvants: Researchers find neurological damage from aluminum adjuvants in two separate studies
By Kristin Johns
Science is a laborious process; two steps forward and one step back. Quicksilver minds formulate a hypothesis and painstakingly set out to prove it, and then other researchers argue, test, counter, and prove or disprove the results. Science is only ever what we know so far.
So when I read a study showing that an aluminum adjuvant, used in various vaccines including Gardasil, DTaP, Tdap, hepatitis A and B, and anthrax had caused serious neurological problems in lab mice I relaxed. I confidently assumed that I’d find studies and comments utterly refuting the work. Probably the FDA or CDC would have something reassuring to say about it.
OK, then. I contacted one of the study’s authors, Dr Chris Shaw, a research scientist at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. He and his colleagues had, after all, set out to look at Gulf War Syndrome and the more than doubled rate of ALS in serving military personnel, not debunk vaccines.
Had he disproved his own study?
