Report Confirms Predatory System of Ferguson*

Report Confirms Predatory System of Ferguson*

By Juan Thompson and Ryan Devereaux

Police in Ferguson, Missouri have presided over a predatory system of entrenched racism, economic exploitation and constitutional rights violations stretching back several years, according to a long-awaited Department of Justice investigation released Wednesday. The scathing 102-page report paints a portrait of a vicious environment in which Ferguson’s black residents are disproportionately mired in municipal court fines — frequently resulting from dubious traffic stops — in order to generate revenue for the St. Louis suburb and routinely subjected to excessive use of force.

The report, six months in the making, confirms many of the complaints black residents raised in the wake the fatal August shooting of Michael Brown — an unarmed African American teen — by Darren Wilson, a white Ferguson police officer. Brown’s killing sparked months of protest, highlighting longstanding discriminatory practices carried out by Ferguson’s majority white police force against Ferguson’s majority black population.

In a press conference Wednesday unveiling the report, Attorney General Eric Holder blamed Ferguson’s police for creating a “powder keg” that exploded when Brown was gunned down in broad daylight. In November, a grand jury declined to indict Wilson in Brown’s slaying; in a separate development Wednesday, the DOJ cleared Wilson of alleged civil rights violations in the teen’s killing.

The DOJ’s report on the Ferguson police department places responsibility for the deplorable civil rights conditions in Ferguson on department and city officials alike — some of whom federal officials documented sending racist emails denigrating the president, the first lady and black people in general.

The report took aim at five distinct areas: the Ferguson Police Department’s exploitation of citizens as a source of revenue, police practices, the municipality’s court system, racial bias and community distrust. In each area, the police department in Ferguson was found to be an abysmal failure in which interlocking abuses and perverse incentives have eroded constitutional rights.

The report tells the story of a city where, under the colour of law enforcement, demands for revenue have been coupled with racial discrimination, resulting in disastrous conclusions for the city’s black residents.

As the report noted, from 2012 to 2014 African Americans accounted for “85% of vehicle stops, 90% of citations, and 93% of arrests made by FPD officers, despite comprising only 67% of Ferguson’s population.” Tickets mean money for the city — in 2013, municipal court fines were Ferguson’s second highest source, the bulk of which were levelled against African Americans.

“Ferguson’s law enforcement practices are shaped by the City’s focus on revenue rather than by public safety needs,” the report stated.

“This emphasis on revenue has compromised the institutional character of Ferguson’s police department, contributing to a pattern of unconstitutional policing, and has also shaped its municipal court, leading to procedures that raise due process concerns and inflict unnecessary harm on members of the Ferguson community.”

For those familiar with law enforcement in St. Louis County, the report reflected a confirmation of longstanding problems.

“This report tells us something we already know,” said Montague Simmons, chair of the St. Louis nonprofit Organization for Black Struggle.

“The question we should be asking is what do we do with it? Do we dismantle the racist police state, and disband the Ferguson the Police Department? Or do we learn nothing and keep on with the same thing.”

Holder’s DOJ stopped short of calling for the wholesale disbanding of Ferguson’s police department, though he did blame the department for fostering a “toxic environment, defined by mistrust and resentment.” In the report, however, his office laid out 26 recommendations for Ferguson’s police department and municipal court system. Failure to comply with a “consent decree” could result in the city facing a lawsuit from the federal government.

“It is time for Ferguson’s leaders to take immediate, wholesale and structural corrective action,” Holder said Wednesday, adding that,

“the United States Department of Justice reserves all its rights and abilities to force compliance and implement basic change.”

The report found that in nearly nine out of 10 uses of force by the Ferguson police department, the person on the receiving end was black. In one particularly brutal scene described in the report, the police tasered a mentally disabled man who had tried to commit suicide in his cell. It occurred in July 2011 when, “a correctional officer used a [taser] to stun an African-American male inmate three times after he tried to hang himself with material torn from a medical dressing and banged his head on the cell wall.”

Another incident in the report illustrated how Ferguson police frequently violated the First Amendment rights of Ferguson’s black residents. “In July 2012,” the report said, “a police officer arrested a business owner on charges of Interfering in Police Business and Misuse of 911 because she objected to the officer’s detention of her employee. According to FPD records, the owner ‘became verbally involved,’ came out of her shop three times … The officer characterized her protestations as interference and arrested her inside her shop. The arrest violated the First Amendment.”

Such arrests were routine; the report detailed numerous cases of police arresting residents for constitutionally protected activities such as disrespectful language toward police and the recording of citizens’ encounters with police.

The Department of Justice accused Ferguson Police of being too quick to “escalate encounters with subjects they perceive to be disobeying their orders or resisting arrest. They have come to rely on [Electronic Control Weapons], specifically Tasers, where less force — or no force at all — would do.”

The department’s use of force also included the discriminatory use of police canines, even on children: “FPD engages in a pattern of deploying canines to bite individuals when the articulated facts do not justify this significant use of force. The department’s own records demonstrate that, as with other types of force, canine officers use dogs out of proportion to the threat posed by the people they encounter, leaving serious puncture wounds to nonviolent offenders, some of them children.” The report documented 14 bites by police dogs in which racial information was available — every person was black.

The Ferguson police also targeted black women. In one scene, officers were called to a domestic disturbance, but instead of aiding the woman who called 911, police jailed her for an occupancy violation. In a separate incident, another black woman, who had also called 911, was issued a summons for an occupancy permit violation. The report says she told the officer that she “hated the Ferguson Police Department and will never call again, even if she is being killed.” The Department of Justice also catalogued how police tasered black women even when they posed no physical threat.

Discriminatory behavior by street-level cops was matched by racist attitudes by higher-level city officials. One remarkable section of the report detailed how “some Ferguson decision makers hold negative stereotypes about African Americans, and lack of personal responsibility is one of them” — despite the fact that black residents made incredible efforts to pay the fines that were disproportionately handed out to them. At the same time, according to the report, white Ferguson police officers made a habit of fixing parking tickets for friends.

“Even as Ferguson City officials maintain the harmful stereotype that black individuals lack personal responsibility,” the report said, “and continue to cite this lack of personal responsibility as the cause of the disparate impact of Ferguson’s practices — white City officials condone a striking lack of personal responsibility.”

Ferguson’s municipal employees also held anti-black views, using official city email accounts to trade racist jokes. The report documents seven such emails. In one email municipal officials “mocked African Americans through speech and familial stereotypes, using a story involving child support. One line from the email read: ‘I be so glad that dis be my last child support payment! Month after month, year after year, all dose payments!’” Other employees referred to Barack Obama as a Chimpanzee, and endorsed the termination of black pregnancies as an effective tool for reducing crime. Another email “included a photo of a bare-chested group of dancing women, apparently in Africa, with the caption, ‘Michelle Obama’s High School Reunion.’” The authors of the emails were not identified.

The city of Ferguson — which is still reeling from the events following Brown’s killing last summer — will now have to answer for a report that depicts a widely bigoted police force and local government that actively targets black residents for harassment and assault.

In a statement released Wednesday, Brown’s parents welcomed the report, saying,

“It is our hope that through this action, true change will come not only in Ferguson, but around the country. If that change happens, our son’s death will not have been in vain.”

A Loophole that Could Save Maryland From Common Core*

A Loophole that Could Save Maryland From Common Core*

By Kelsey Harkness

As millions of students across the nation begin taking Common Core-aligned standardized tests for the first time, Maryland finds itself in a unique position to opt-out.

A loophole discovered by a state lawmaker gives the governor the power to withdraw Maryland from tests created by Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC), which are designed to assess how well students are learning under the Common Core standards.

“It’s important for Maryland because the PARCC assessments and the consortium already—in its very short life—has shown clear evidence that it was poorly developed, poorly managed, and crammed down the throats of the states,” said David Vogt III, a Republican member of the state assembly.

Vogt recently discovered a hidden clause in a memorandum — signed by former Democratic Gov. Martin O’Malley in 2010 — that committed Maryland to PARCC testing.

The loophole grants the newly elected governor, Republican Larry Hogan, the authority to either recommit or remove Maryland from the PARCC exams within the first five months of holding office.

Maryland’s legislature remains Democratically controlled.

Vogt is rallying a coalition of parents, educators, and administrators to pressure Hogan to pull the state out of PARCC.

“[PARCC’s] not only unconstitutional, but it’s a hindrance to the education system of Maryland,” Vogt said.

“Education was built to be a state-managed and operated function and the governor exercising his authority here will put it back in the state of Maryland’s hands.”

The timing of the discovery is significant, because Maryland, along with a number of other states, is officially administering the new Common Core-aligned tests for the very first time, despite protests that have sparked across the nation.

In New Mexico, two hashtags, #BarkAtThePARCC and #PARCCWalkOut, went viral on Twitter, encouraging students to “walk out” on the exams.

In New Jersey, technical problems caused some schools to delay the tests, which are taken on a computer. Thousands of students simply refused to take the tests.

“It took more time to set up the test than it did to take the test,” junior Emily Green of Cresskill, N.J., told CBS New York.

“It took more time to set up the test than it did to take the test,” junior Emily Green of Cresskill, N.J., told CBS New York.

In Colorado, The Denver Post reported that of 100 students who tried to log on to take the computerized tests, only five were able to due to technical glitches, spurring criticism that states were inadequately prepared to test to the new standards.

William Reinhard, spokesman for the Maryland State Department of Education, told The Daily Signal that “very few” students protested the exams.

“Full testing began this week with few technical issues and no broad student or parent protests,” he said.

“More than 40,000 Maryland students are taking the assessment today.”

Still, the grassroots opt-out movement in Maryland is difficult to ignore.

Tony Piacente, the father of an 8th grader who goes to school in Mechanicsville, Md., told The Daily Signal that he’s been battling St. Mary’s County and the State Department of Education for over six weeks trying to refuse his son’s participation in PARCC.

“They are trying to bully me into submission,” he said.

“I get contradictory statements from both places and they still have yet to provide me the law or regulation that states my child must participate in the PARCC to graduate.”

Piacente said he opposes PARCC because,

“The prep time and test time takes away over 30 plus hours of quality instructional time for students, kids are tested enough in class, and it places undue stress and pressure on kids of all age groups.”

Maryland State Superintendent of Schools Lillian Lowery yesterday spoke out in support of the PARCC assessment, calling it “a tremendous opportunity to gain more insights than ever before into how our students are progressing, and identify where we can all do better.”

But Vogt believes he can garner enough momentum through grassroots organizations to pressure the governor to pull out of the tests.

“It’s fairly uniform across the board [that] everybody’s concerned about the testing problems,” he said.

“I’ve had phone calls and letters and emails come in — from parents and teachers who are in the public school system, to members of local school boards across the state.”

Without the PARCC exams, teachers would still be required to follow the Common Core curriculum.

Common Core proponents argue that PARCC and similar assessments are the best way for the federal government to ensure that states are faithfully implementing the standards.

Maryland, along with 45 other states, adopted the Common Core standards in 2010 as a way to ensure that kids are college and career ready, and to track student success in a way that’s comparable state-by-state.

Critics say the exams are too rigorous and detract from local and state control of the classroom. They also argue that states were incentivized by the Obama administration to adopt Common Core and its affiliated exams with $4.35 billion in Race to the Top grants and waivers from the No Child Left Behind law.

Maryland received a four-year, $250 million federal grant for fully implementing the standards by the 2014-2015 academic year.

State lawmakers will formally challenge Common Core this week, when they consider a number of proposals that intend to slow down or halt the process of implementing the standards.

A spokeswoman for Hogan told The Daily Signal that the governor is still deciding what to do about the PARCC tests.

“The governor has major concerns about ‘one-size fits-all’ standards like Common Core and PARCC, and he will be exploring ways to improve or remove them during his term,” Erin Montgomery, the spokeswoman, said.

U.S. Farmer Harvests a Profit by not Planting the Big GMO Lie*

U.S. Farmer Harvests a Profit by not Planting the Big GMO Lie*

By Christina Sarich

We need GMOs to feed the world like a fish needs dry land. A controversial farmer in California is proving that a veritable bumper crop can be had using new farming methods that don’t require GMO pesticides, herbicides, or even weeding, and require 10 times less water than the average farm. The best part – he earned $100K per acre last season without even harvesting all of his land.

What kind of super-fertilizer allows Paul Kaiser to grow so much food on a mere 8 acres? Lots of rotten food scraps and rotten plants – otherwise known as compost. And he uses loads of it.

He uses farming practices both old, and cutting-edge-new so well that agricultural specialists from University of California at Davis who have tested his top soil can drive a four-foot steel pole all the way through his fields. This, as opposed to most parts of California, where it would hit infertile hard-pan in less than 12 inches.

Last year, Kaiser’s farm located in Sonoma Valley, CA grossed more than $100,000 an acre, too. This is ten times the average for most farmers of this area, even in lucrative wine-country.

His farm is no mega-farm, either. At just under 8 acres, he is beating even other large organic farms because the soil is still so damaged in other conventional and organic farms alike. He is certainly out-performing Big Ag methods of farming as his unique farming practices have turned the soil into a goldmine.

Kaiser follows what he calls the 3 main rules of soil health: Keep roots in the ground as much as possible, keep the soil covered as much as possible, and disturb the soil as little as possible.

Kaiser follows what he calls the 3 main rules of soil health: Keep roots in the ground as much as possible, keep the soil covered as much as possible, and disturb the soil as little as possible.

Kaiser also doesn’t plow his fields (which means a lot less work) and he uses around 10 times less water than his peers. His neighbours still run sprinklers, but he waters for about an hour a week, using almost exclusively drip irrigation. This means that while California is still recovering from a drought, most farmers are watering the air – since most of the water is lost to evaporation. Kaiser is watering – how novel an idea – just his plants.

Many California farmers recently spent millions tanking in water to try to save their crops, while Kaiser just made a healthy annual salary for even most high-paid lawyers. Water was being sold on the black market for ridiculous prices, but you can bet Kaiser wasn’t paying them.

Kaiser uses a thick, acrylic blanket to keep both soil and compost piles covered. Most farmers, if the cover soil at all, us immense plastic sheets, which end up each year in the landfill. “These blankets last me 10 years!”

Kaiser is a bit of a mad genius, and a dreamer, too. He rattles off statistics at local talks he gives about exactly how he grows so sustainably, often including surprising facts. For example, he leaves his roots in the ground after harvest to feed the worms. He sounds a bit like a Martin Luther King for growing green:

“Sustainable farming methods are just one corner,” he said. “Economic sustainability is another, and social sustainability is the third.”

During a recent Sunday farmers’ market, representatives of several different agricultural organizations approached Kaiser, each asking him for advice. Now, when billed for talks, he often packs the house.

Kaiser envisions small farms near every city around the globe, even in the most dry, arid climates, and with the proof of his own sweat, and soil, I believe his dream is possible.

The WHO’s Private Vaccine Laboratory*

The WHO’s Private Vaccine Laboratory*

By Christina England

It is a recognized fact that the developing world has been used by the World Health Organization as a vaccine laboratory for decades. This has been proven in data and vaccine studies dating back as far as the 1970s.

With this in mind, we must ask ourselves, is it right to use these vulnerable children in vaccine experiments? I urge you to read the following examples before you come to any conclusions.

Group A Streptococcus (GAS) Unlicensed Vaccine Tested In Africa and Asia

In a report written for the World Health Organization (WHO), titled Status of Vaccine Research and Development of Vaccines for Streptococcus pyogenes Prepared for WHO PD-VAC, the authors state:

Concerns regarding vaccine safety are based upon a theoretical risk of autoimmune reactions in vaccines leading to the development of ARF. One small study of a crude M protein vaccine suggested that there may be an increased risk of ARF in vaccine recipients; however, there are a number of concerns about the design of this trial that make it difficult to interpret, and autoimmune reactions have not been observed in the other human GAS vaccine trials involving thousands of study subjects.

Understanding of human GAS immunity remains incomplete. More information is needed regarding immune protection against GAS skin infection, the role of T-cell immunity and the relative contributions of non-M type-specific antigens (common antigens) in inducing protective immunity. Better epidemiologic data are also required, for assessing burden of disease to strengthen the case for GAS vaccine development and for assessing vaccine coverage more systematically with high quality, standardized molecular typing studies in more countries, particularly in Africa and Asia.

They continued:

A potential strategy to improve understanding of GAS immunology and also to create a pathway for relatively rapid testing of new GAS vaccine candidates is through the development of human GAS (pharyngeal) challenge studies. Previous studies (in the 1970’s) in over 170 volunteers have shown that this approach is feasible, and proposals are under consideration for funding for a revival of this approach.

(Note: ARF = acute rheumatic fever)

(GAS Vaccine = Vaccine against Group A streptococcus )

Group A streptococcus is a bacterium often found in the throat and on the skin. People may carry group A streptococci in the throat or on the skin and have no symptoms of illness. Most GAS infections are relatively mild illnesses such as “strep throat,” or impetigo. On rare occasions, these bacteria can cause other severe and even life-threatening diseases. See MedicineNet.com

In section II, the report continued by confirming that the vaccines being used were unlicensed:

Although there are no currently licensed GAS vaccines yet, the biological feasibility for GAS vaccine development is supported by the following observations……

It is clear from reading this paper in full that the WHO has been responsible for testing these vaccines for many years and we now know that this is not the only vaccine tested on these vulnerable individuals.

Tetanus Vaccines Laced With Hormones Known to Cause Miscarriage

In 1992, the WHO, the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the World Bank met in Geneva, Switzerland, to discuss the then-current status for the development of “fertility regulating vaccinations.” The minutes to that meeting were documented in a paper entitled Fertility Regulating Vaccines.

At first glance, it appears that the WHO had been discussing various methods of family planning with a variety of women’s health advocates and scientists from developing countries. On further reading, however, something far more worrying emerged.

To find out what, I urge you to read my article on the subject, titled WHO Caught Recommending Vaccinations Known to Render Primates Infertile.

In 1994, the WHO decided to put these vaccinations to the test and gave women from developing countries aged between 15 and 45 a tetanus vaccine containing the hCG hormone.

However, an organization known as the Comité Pro Vida de Mexico became suspicious of the protocols surrounding the vaccines and obtained several vials for testing. It was discovered that some of the vials contained human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), the exact same hormone that the WHO, the UNDP, the UNFPA and the World Bank had been discussing just two years earlier.

Determined to Continue Their Efforts, the WHO Did Not Stop There

Having been caught in their earlier attempts, in 2014, the WHO teamed up with the organization UNICEF and decided that they would attempt their antics yet again, only to have their efforts blighted a short time later by the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association.

Dr. Wahome Ngare

Outraged by their disregard for human life, Dr. Wahome Ngare spoke out on behalf of the association, making his feelings abundantly clear. Speaking to the Huffington Post, he said:

What is immoral and evil is that the tetanus laced with HCG was given as a fertility regulating vaccine without disclosing its contraceptive effect to the girls and mothers.

Many people believe that he is absolutely correct and are asking whether or not the WHO has the right to play God and determine who can and cannot have children.

Gates Foundation, PATH, WHO and UNICEF Test Meningitis A Vaccines in Africa

In December 2012, in the small village of Gouro, Chad, Africa, situated on the edge of the Sahara Desert, five hundred children were locked into their school and threatened that if they did not agree to being force-vaccinated with a meningitis A vaccine, they would receive no further education.

These children were vaccinated without their parents’ knowledge. This vaccine was an unlicensed product still going through the third and fourth phases of testing.

Within hours, one hundred and six children began to suffer from headaches, vomiting, severe, uncontrollable convulsions and paralysis. Forty children were finally transferred to a hospital in Faya and later taken to two hospitals in N’Djamena, the capital city of Chad.

And the atrocities continue.

WHO and Gates Foundation are Taken to Court for Testing HPV Vaccines in India

In a recent report written in August 2014, The Economic Times of India outlined how, in 2009, the WHO teamed up with the Gates Foundation to test HPV vaccines on thousands of tribal women in India. The Economic Times wrote:

In 2009, several schools for tribal children in Khammam district in Telangana — then a part of undivided Andhra Pradesh — became sites for observation studies for a cervical cancer vaccine that was administered to thousands of girls aged between nine and 15. The girls were administered the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) vaccine in three rounds that year under the supervision of state health department officials. The vaccine used was Gardasil, manufactured by Merck. It was administered to around 16,000 girls in the district, many of whom stayed in state government-run hostels meant for tribal students.

Months later, many girls started falling ill and by 2010 five of them died. Two more deaths were reported from Vadodara, Gujarat, where an estimated 14,000 children studying in schools meant for tribal children were also vaccinated with another brand of HPV vaccine, Cervarix, manufactured by GSK. Earlier in the week, the Associated Press reported that scores of teenaged girls were hospitalised in a small town in northern Colombia with symptoms that parents suspect could be an adverse reaction to Gardasil.

A standing committee on health and family welfare that investigated the irregularities pertaining to the observation studies in India tabled its report a year ago, on August 30.

The committee found that consent for conducting these studies, in many cases, was taken from the hostel wardens, which was a flagrant violation of norms. In many other cases, thumbprint impressions of their poor and illiterate parents were duly affixed onto the consent form. The children also had no idea about the nature of the disease or the vaccine. The authorities concerned could not furnish requisite consent forms for the vaccinated children in a huge number of cases.

Dr. Lucia Tomljenovic and Professor Christopher Shaw, two professionals supported by the Children’s Medical Safety Research Institute, an organization providing grants for an investigation into HPV vaccine safety, discussed how India’s medical authorities were condemned for their actions after Kalpana Mehta, Nalini Bhanot and Dr. Rukmini Rao filed a writ petition with the Supreme Court of India. In their paper titled Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine policy and evidence-based medicine: Are they at odds? Dr. Tomljenovic and Professor Shaw wrote:

India’s medical authorities have also been publicly condemned after a civil society-led investigation revealed that trials for HPV vaccines in the states of Andhra Pradesh and Gujarat violated established national and international ethical guidelines on clinical research as well as children’s rights. ! These events apparently occurred as a result of ‘aggressive ’ promotional practices of the drug companies and their uncritical endorsement by India’s medical associations.

Although proclaimed as a post-licensure observational study of HPV vaccination against cervical cancer, the project was in fact a clinical trial and, as such, should have adhered to protocols mandated by the Drugs and Cosmetics Act (DCA) and the Indian Council for Medical Research (ICMR). Instead, the trial was found in serious breach of both the DCA’s and the ICMR’s guidelines for informed consent and was terminated in April 2010, following six post-HPV vaccination deaths.

Now, let’s move on to my final example.

High Titre Measles Vaccines Tested on Vulnerable Babies in the 1980’s

In June 2014, Osman Sankoh et al published a paper in the International Journal of Epidemiology, titled: The non-specific effects of vaccines and other childhood interventions: the contribution of INDEPTH Health and Demographic Surveillance Systems.

The researchers explained that the majority of vaccination studies being published today attempt to justify whether or not the vaccination in question has an overall positive effect on the population being vaccinated. However, the researchers publishing this particular study decided to investigate whether or not the vaccinations being given to children in high mortality regions were causing the children to die from unrelated diseases being caused by the vaccines.

In other words, the researchers studied not only whether the vaccine protected children from the diseases that they were being vaccinated against, but also whether or not the vaccines were causing non-specific effects (NSEs) that were beneficial/detrimental to children’s health, depending upon:

  •    The age of the child when vaccinated
  •    The combination of the vaccines given at the time

The researchers stated that:

In many situations, the population-based effects have been very different from the anticipated effects; for example, the measles-preventive high-titre measles vaccine was associated with 2-fold increased female mortality; BCG reduces neonatal mortality although children do not die of tuberculosis in the neonatal period; vitamin A may be associated with increased or reduced child mortality in different situations; effects of interventions may differ for boys and girls.

They also stated:

Each year, immunization averts an estimated 2–3 million deaths from diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis (whooping cough) and measles. However, there is now strong evidence that vaccines have substantial non-specific (heterologous) effects in children in high-mortality regions, i.e. by changing mortality from infections unrelated to the vaccine-targeted infections. As a consequence. the World Health Organization’s (WHO’s) Strategic Advisory Group of Experts (SAGE) on Immunization has recently initiated a review of the nonspecific effects (NSEs) of BCG, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTP) and measles (MV) vaccines. (Note: High titer/titre vaccine: A modified live vaccine that contains a higher number of virus particles than the ‘average’ vaccine.)

By researching the various vaccinations, age that the vaccinations were administered and the various combinations of vaccines administered, researchers discovered a range of worrying outcomes.

Results Are Extremely Worrying

If we study these results in detail, many are extremely worrying. It is clear that a variety of vaccinations were being given to extremely vulnerable babies, in multiple combinations, from birth.

The results of their study clearly highlighted areas of concern. One of the most alarming was the fact that the study revealed a higher mortality rate in those females vaccinated with the high titre measles vaccine. The researchers stated:

HTMV was tested in RCTs in the late 1980s, comparing HTMV at 4–5 months of age with standard MV at 9 months of age. The HTMV was protective against measles infection and was recommended by WHO in 1989 for general use in low-income countries with a high incidence of measles infection. A meta-analysis of studies from Bissau, Gambia and Senegal showed that this vaccine was associated with 33% increased mortality rate between 4 and 60 months of age. The excess mortality was among girls, whereas the new vaccine compared with the traditional MV had no differential effect on survival for boys. These results were subsequently confirmed in RCTs from Sudan and Haiti, and WHO withdrew the 1989 recommendation for HTMV in 1992.

These RCTs showed:

       first, that a fully protective vaccine can have negative NSE

second, that these effects can be sex-differential and

third, that NSE can have major effects on child mortality patterns; had the vaccine not been withdrawn, a 33% excess mortality rate between ages 4 and 60 months would at the time have meant at least an additional half-million female deaths annually, in Africa alone.

However, despite the WHO removing the vaccination from the schedule in 1992, the high titre Edmonston-Zagreb measles vaccine was once again used to test infants from low income countries in 2004-2007. See a study published in the Journal of Infectious Diseases.

Conclusion: WHO Needs to be Investigated for Unethical Research

The WHO has engaged in activities that fall far below the standards of ethical, research and medical conduct that have been established by our health organizations to protect human rights. They should therefore be investigated and prevented from these unchecked activities in the future. If not, each and every one of us will be put at risk when this type of evil is done in the name of medicine.
