Concerned Vermonter Responds to Brattleboro Reformer

Dear Editor of the Brattleboro Reformer,

To the author of the October 30th op-ed
An epidemic of misinformation,’

I recommend that you
read “Polio” by David M. Oshinsky. The polio
vaccine is not and never was a slam-dunk. From p.
227: “In less than a month, [the NY Times]
claimed, ‘the air of victory’ surrounding the Salk
vaccine had become a stench of ‘confusion,
conflict, and doubt.’ ”

P. 230: “We had eighteen monkeys,” said Dr.
Bernice Eddy, an NIH staff microbiologist. “We
inoculated [them] with each vaccine that came in.
And we started getting paralyzed monkeys.” The red
flag that Dr. Eddy raised was utterly ignored.

P. 281: Both the Salk and the Sabin vaccine were
contaminated with the oncogenic Simian Virus 40

Judyth Vary Baker, in the book “Me & Lee” (p.
281), reports that she was told by Dr. Mary
Sherman of Tulane Medical School that “the huge
stockpile of [polio] vaccines she knew were
contaminated had not been recalled.”

The Indian Journal of Medical Ethics has reported:
“while India has been polio-free for a year, there
has been a huge increase in non-polio acute
flaccid paralysis (NPAFP). In 2011, there were
47,500 new cases of NPAFP. Clinically
indistinguishable from polio paralysis but twice
as deadly, the incidence of NPAFP was directly
proportional to doses of oral polio [vaccine]
received. Though this data was collected…it was
not investigated.” The authors note in the same
article that polio eradication is now impossible
because the polio virus was synthesized in 2002.

According to the 1977 NCI-NIH Virus Cancer Program
report (p. 19): “it was discovered that the
oncogenic papovavirus SV40, acquired from the
simian cells used for propagation of the
adenoviruses, was present as a major contaminant
in these vaccine preparations. …Thus, more than
one million people were inoculated with
representative members of two groups of DNA
viruses with known oncogenic properties.”

From the 1971 NCI-NIH Special Virus Cancer Program
(SVCP) Progress Report #8 (p. 191): “The ability
to infect and transform human cells with SV40 DNA
is now well established.”

From “The Vaccine Papers” by Janine Roberts (p.
99): “The authoritative Merck veterinary manual
states: ‘Aluminum [a vaccine adjuvant]…has been
identified in vaccine-induced fibrosarcomas, and a
prolonged proliferation of fibroblasts in response
to the adjuvant may predispose them to undergo
neoplastic transformation.” One of my sister’s
dogs died from cancer that developed at the site
where it received all of its vaccines.

Vaccines are often manufactured on ‘immmortalized’
cell lines. ‘Immortalized’ is a euphemism for
tumorigenic, oncogenic.

A 2009 patent application for ‘chimeric’ Ebola
products suggests using the infamous HeLa cancer
cell line as a host cell line and SV40 as a
possible ‘promoter.’ So, these things are not
going away.

You ignore tons of easy-to-find information on the
questionable manufacturing processes and the
difficult history, contamination, and side effects
of vaccines.

A majority in this state has expressed its concern
over genetically modified foods. What most people
fail to consider, however, is that allowing
oneself to be vaccinated with, for instance, a
future ebola vaccine comprised of chimeric forms
of the virus, expressed in HeLa cells with SV40 as
a ‘promoter’ is a form of human genetic
engineering. Parents are persuaded to have their
kids genetically modified over and over and over
again, in very questionable ways, and are often
treated with utter scorn if they dare to ask
educated and legitimate questions.

Human ebola virus species and compositions and
methods thereof

[0026] In another aspect, the invention provides
vaccine preparations, comprising the inventive
hEbola virus, including recombinant and chimeric
forms of the virus…

[0131] Examples of useful mammalian host cell
lines include VERO and HeLa cells,…

[0134] A number of viral based expression systems
are operable herein, for example, commonly used
promoters are derived from polyoma, Adenovirus 2,
Adenovirus 5, cytomegalovirus and 30 Simian Virus
40 (SV40). The early and late promoters of SV40
virus are useful because both are obtained easily
from the virus as a fragment which also contains
the SV40 viral origin of replication.
