But NOT censored on Health Impact News and Vaccine Impact! Click image to read the report.
Health Impact News Editor Comments
It is very obvious to anyone paying attention these days that news regarding vaccine safety is routinely censored in the mainstream media. We know that the U.S. Government puts pressure on the U.S. media to not publish anything negative regarding vaccine safety, as Kathleen Sebelius, secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services under President Obama, openly admitted this in an interview with Reader’s Digest:
RD:What can be done about public mistrust of vaccines?
KS:There are groups out there that insist that vaccines are responsible for a variety of problems despite all scientific evidence to the contrary. We have reached out to media outlets to try to get them to not give the views of these people equal weight in their reporting to what science has shown and continues to show about the safety of vaccines. (Source.)
Outside the U.S. the largest purchaser of vaccines is the United Nations, primarily through UNICEF, and the World Health Organization (WHO), funded primarily by pharmaceutical companies, is the Government body approving the vaccines to be purchased and distributed. Negative news regarding vaccine safety is, therefore, vigorously opposed.
Christina England writes about vaccine censorship in Canada and the involvement of the World Health Organization. This is an especially crucial topic, as recent studies show just how toxic and dangerous aluminum adjuvants in vaccines are, and the public has a right to have access to this information from scientists in Canada.
Canadian Media and the WHO Attempt to Discredit Scientists from University of British Columbia
by Christina England Health Impact News
When a professional gets a little too close to the truth for comfort, the most efficient and effective way for government agencies and the pharmaceutical industry to prevent them from exposing the truth is to destroy their credibility.
This is exactly what happened when Professor Shaw and Dr. Tomljenovic published a series of leading papers exposing the possible links between aluminum adjuvants and autism.
The question is, what exactly is being covered up and why?
Canadian Media are Involved in the Attack, but Exactly WHO are They Working For?
Over recent weeks, the Canadian media have been actively criticizing the work of two researchers from the University of British Columbia. Newspapers have stated that studies written by Professor Christopher Shaw and Dr. Lucija Tomljenovic, outlining a correlation between the adjuvant aluminum used in vaccines and autism were “weak and misleading,” stating that the studies had been previously discredited by the World Health Organization (WHO).
Organizations that promote messages about the dangers of vaccines, such as the Children’s Medical Safety Research Institute (CMSRI), have used the results of the UBC research as evidence that vaccines cause autism and other serious harm. The front page of the CMSRI website states that in a “landmark” 2013 paper, the two UBC researchers show that “the more children receive vaccines with aluminum adjuvants, the greater their chance is of developing autism, autoimmune diseases and neurological problems later in life.” In that study, the researchers note that the rate of autism spectrum disorders increased along with the number of pediatric vaccines that contain aluminum.
Instead of actually researching their paper in depth and quoting what the researchers had discovered and how they had come to their conclusions, Ms. Weeks continued her vicious attack by cleverly averting her readers’ attention away from the 2013 paper, focusing their attention instead on a WHO report written in 2012 which referred to two 2011 studies.
It is a complete mystery as to why such a capable young journalist could only find an out-of-date report consisting of a total of three poorly written and inaccurate paragraphs to support her argument. Especially since the WHO has no solid proof that aluminum adjuvants are safe. In a statement written in their paper titled World Health Organization. Weekly and epidemiological record 7 Jan 2005 in a section titled Global Advisory Committee on Vaccine Safety, 2–3 December 2004, they admit that they have neglected this subject:
The Committee considered the safety of adjuvants used in vaccines. This hitherto neglected subject is becoming increasingly important given modern advances in vaccine development and manufacture.
If only she had spent a little less time trying to discredit Professor Shaw and Dr. Tomljenovic and a little more time researching their work, she may have discovered further studies written in 2013, 2014 and 2015 that had added even further weight to their work.
Instead, Ms. Weeks, like so many others before her, chose to reel off the usual mantra, stating that:
Numerous peer-reviewed, high-quality studies have shown that vaccines are not linked to autism. Although they are not risk-free, the incidence of adverse events linked to vaccination is low.
This left many of her readers with a lot of unanswered questions, especially since the University of British Columbia fully backed the work of the two researchers and refused to be interviewed on the subject.
What Had Professor Shaw and Dr. Tomljenovic Discovered and Why Had it Been Covered Up?
The researchers had compared the number of vaccines recommend by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) during the period from 1991 – 2008 and the changes in the autism rates during the same period. They wrote:
The data sets, graphed against each other, show a pronounced and statistically highly significant correlation between the number vaccines with aluminum and the changes in autism rates. Further data showed that a significant correlation exists between the amounts of aluminum given to preschool children and the current rates of autism in seven Western countries. Those countries with the highest level of aluminum-adjuvanted vaccines had the highest autism rates.
The observed correlation between the number of aluminum-adjuvanted vaccines and ASD was further tested using Hill Criteria and met eight of nine of these indicating that vaccines containing aluminum are highly likely to be at least partially causal for autism.
Professor Shaw and Dr. Tomljenovic continued their paper by adding:
There are other links between aluminum exposure/toxicity and ASD. These include the following: A pilot study showed higher than normal aluminum levels in the hair, blood and/or urine of autistic children; children are regularly exposed to higher levels of aluminum in vaccines per body weight than adults; practically, nothing is known about the pharmacokinetics and toxicodynamics of aluminum in vaccines in children; and aluminum in vaccines has been linked to serious neurological impairments, chronic fatigue and autoimmunity.
In fact, Professor Shaw and Dr. Tomljenovic not only linked the adjuvant aluminum to autism, but also linked the adjuvant to the rise in the incidence of Alzheimer’s disease, Gulf War syndrome and a relatively new syndrome, ASIA (autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants) that had also been discovered that same year.
Our previous ecological studies of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) has demonstrated a correlation between increasing ASD rates and aluminium (Al) adjuvants in common use in paediatric vaccines in several Western countries. The correlation between ASD rate and Al adjuvant amounts appears to be dose-dependent and satisfies 8 of 9 Hill criteria for causality.
We have now sought to provide an animal model to explore potential behavioural phenotypes and central nervous system (CNS) alterations using s.c. injections of Al hydroxide in early postnatal CD-1 mice of both sexes. Injections of a “high” and “low” Al adjuvant levels were designed to correlate to either the U.S. or Scandinavian paediatric vaccine schedules vs. control saline-injected mice. Both male and female mice in the “high Al” group showed significant weight gains following treatment up to sacrifice at 6 months of age. Male mice in the “high Al” group showed significant changes in light-dark box tests and in various measures of behaviour in an open field. Female mice showed significant changes in the light-dark box at both doses, but no significant changes in open field behaviours.
These current data implicate Al injected in early postnatal life in some CNS alterations that may be relevant for a better understanding of the aetiology of ASD.
In other words, these results clearly supported their original findings. This leads us to wonder whether or not this was the real reason that the Globe and Mail chose to ignore the researchers’ investigations and outcomes in favor of an outdated WHO report and whether it is possible that the Globe’s staff had been instructed by the WHO to take this approach. After all, the WHO had been well aware that aluminum was a neurotoxin with the potential to cause Alzheimer’s disease, developmental, behavioural and intellectual disorders in animals and humans since the 1980s.
Association Between Aluminum and Neurological Disorders Known for Years
In 1988, a population of about 20 000 individuals in Camelford, England, was exposed for at least 5 days to unknown but increased levels of aluminium accidentally distributed to the population from a water supply facility using aluminium sulfate for treatment. Symptoms including nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, mouth ulcers, skin ulcers, skin rashes, and arthritic pain were noted. It was concluded that the symptoms were mostly mild and short-lived. No lasting effects on health could be attributed to the known exposures from aluminium in the drinking-water (Clayton, 1989). (emphasis added)
Of the six studies that examined the relationship between aluminium in drinking water and dementia or AD, three found a positive relationship, but three did not.(emphasis added)
Even though the WHO concluded above that the evidence did not support a risk, their conclusion to this paper appeared to state otherwise:
The Environmental Health Criteria document for aluminium (WHO, 1997) concluded that:
On the whole, the positive relationship between aluminium in drinking-water and AD, which was demonstrated in several epidemiological studies, cannot be totally dismissed. However, strong reservations about inferring a causal relationship are warranted in view of the failure of these studies to account for demonstrated confounding factors and for total aluminium intake from all sources.(emphasis added)
This paper clearly indicated that the WHO has been fully aware of the links between aluminum in drinking water and neurological disorders, including Alzheimer’s disease, for many years.
designed to target specific neurotransmitter systems
Synaptogenesis may be adversely affected by ethanol, lead, methylmercury, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), triethyltin, parathion, permethrin, and serotonin antagonists.
Apoptosis or cell death is a complex process in which appropriate cells are removed to ensure optimal neurodevelopmental behavioural intellectual development. However, this intricate, balanced process may be adversely affected at critical stages of gestation and postnatal development by exposure to ethanol, lead, mercury and chlorpyrifos.
Neurotransmission processes may be adversely affected by cholinesterase inhibitors, ethanol, methylmercury, aluminum, as well as pharmaceuticals and pesticides designed to target specific neurotransmitter systems.

Once again, this presentation clearly indicates that the WHO had been aware for many years that aluminum had the potential to cause neurological deficits in children, and this was further supported in a paper titled Aluminium (EHC 194, 1997), sections 7 and 8.
However, as section 7 referred to animal models only, for the purpose of this article, I have decided to highlight only the information in section 8 relating to humans.
The paper was headed:

The paper began with the following statement:

It continued by adding:
The International Programme on Chemical Safety (IPCS) is a joint venture of the United Nations Environment Programme, the International Labour Organisation, and the World Health Organization.The main objective of the IPCS is to carry out and disseminate evaluations of the effects of chemicals on human health and the quality of the environment. Supporting activities include the development of epidemiological, experimental laboratory, and risk-assessment methods that could produce internationally comparable results, and the development of manpower in the field of toxicology. Other activities carried out by the IPCS include the development of know-how for coping with chemical accidents, coordination of laboratory testing and epidemiological studies, and promotion of research on the mechanisms of the biological action of chemicals.

It has been suggested that aluminium exposure is a risk factor for the development or acceleration of onset of AD in humans (Crapper McLachlan, 1986; Crapper McLachlan et al., 1989). The precise pathogenic role of aluminium in AD is judged controversial and remains to be defined (Wisniewski & Wen, 1992; Wischik et al., 1992; Edwardson, 1992).
In section 22.214.171.124 they concluded:
126.96.36.199 Conclusions regarding neurological effects of aluminium
The positive relationship between aluminium in drinking-water and AD, which has been demonstrated in several epidemiological studies, cannot be totally dismissed.However, strong reservations about inferring a causal relationship are warranted in view of the failure of studies to account for demonstrated confounding factors and for aluminium intake from all sources.
Taken together, the relative risks for AD from exposure to aluminium in drinking-water at levels above100 µg/litre as determined in these studies are low. But, because the risk estimates are imprecise for a variety of methodological reasons, a population-attributable risk cannot be calculated with precision. Such predictions may, however, be useful in making decisions about the need to control the exposure to aluminium in the general population.
In light of the above studies, which consider water-borne aluminium as the sole risk factor, and the recent findings that water accounts for less than 5% of daily uptake of aluminium, it is difficult to reconcile a presumable impact on cognition. Several lines of investigation should be pursued to elucidate further the nature of the relationship found in these studies (see Chapter 12). (emphasis added)
As we can see, this paper appears to support the fact that the WHO has been aware of a risk between aluminum in drinking water and AD for many years, even though they admit that the risk is low. The very fact that they have recommended further investigation is worrying, especially when they later discredit studies questioning the use of aluminum in childhood vaccinations.
I have outlined enough evidence in this article to indicate that the WHO has been aware for many years that aluminum can cause neurological, behavioural and developmental disorders in humans. It is highly suspicious that the Globe and Mail should criticize anyone daring to expose the truth, at a time when the WHO is under immense scrutiny for having been exposed using experimental vaccines, on vulnerable men, women and children in the developing world. (See Developing World – The WHO’s Private Vaccine Laboratory.)
It is about time the people of the world woke up to the fact that the World Health Organization is an organization that can no longer be trusted when it comes to vaccination.
We need to ask ourselves exactly why they are covering up the truth and what their agenda really is.
Despite the technological advances that we use every day to bring each other closer together, there are still some that choose to leave everything behind and live in total solitude. In his photo series ‘Escape,’ Russian photographer Danila Tkachenko traveled through Russia and Ukraine in search of hermits living in self-imposed exile, far away from any city or village.
Tkachenko’s work raises questions about what identity truly means when we are forced to live how society tells us to: “School, work, family – once in this cycle, you are a prisoner of your own position. You should be pragmatic and strong, or become an outcast or a lunatic. How to remain yourself in the midst of this?”

TACOMA, WA — A state bureaucracy is threatening a mother with removal of an infant unless her entire family subjects themselves to flu shots.
This is the dilemma that foster parent Jamie Smith is currently facing. The Washington Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) is giving the Tacoma family until February to comply with the mandated regimen of influenza vaccines — imposed on every member of the family — or else they will lose their youngest child, a 2-week-old foster infant that was born on Christmas.
Mrs. Smith is a dedicated foster mom, and has fostered seven babies. She currently raises five children, including an adopted 4-year-old daughter. Her objection to vaccines is based on safety concerns for her family, she revealed in an interview with KOMO News:
“I’ve done a lot of research on it and I don’t like some of the side effects that it has,” she said.
Smith says she’s worried about mercury in the vaccine and its effects on the brain. She doesn’t want her or her five children exposed to that even if it means losing the little one.
“I’ve thought about that a lot,” said Smith. “Unfortunately, I have to think about our kids who are in the house first and to me they’re more important, their safety, than trying to fight to keep this little guy.”

Flu shots, like the ones listed above, are responsible for a host of neurological disorders and other serious side effects. According to the DOJ’s report on the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program — which settles vaccine injury claims since the drug makers were made legally blameless by Congress — over half the compensatory claims handled between 5/16/2013 to 8/15/2013 were for adverse reactions to flu vaccines. The injuries included:
Guillain-Barré Syndrome, myelopathy and radiculopathy; psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis; chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy; skin rash, fatigue, and scarring; brachial neuritis; shoulder injury related to vaccine administration, autoimmune demyelinating condition, bursitis, Bell’s palsy and urticaria/angioedema; bilateral brachial neuritis; meningoencephalitis and optic neuritis; transverse myelitis, serum sickness and pain amplification syndrome of childhood/fibromyalgia; acute disseminated encephalomyelitis; rheumatoid arthritis; significant aggravation of an underlying COPD and other pulmonary conditions, and death.
Despite these weighty concerns, Mrs. Smith’s informed objection to vaccinating is being cast aside by bureaucratic force. The mandate holds that she, her husband, and each of the other children must be injected with the drug, or else their family will be broken apart and their precious “Christmas baby” will be taken away.
“I’m hoping that we can raise enough of a voice that the state will at least give waivers or do something so the children won’t be taken out of their homes,” Mrs. Smith told KOMO News. Her family’s integrity requires that readers and supporters rally against these invasive medical mandates imposed on families like the Smiths.
