“CBC News spoke with business owners in the pet industry in Thunder Bay. Two of them expressed similar concerns about the frequency of vaccines, but declined to go on record for fear of possible negative effects on their relationships with local veterinarians.”1
What an illuminating piece. While veterinarians widely acknowledge that too many pet vaccines are causing cancer and other immune system problems in pets, medical doctors pretend this is not the case in children – despite the fact that over 54% of US children have a chronic illness or developmental disability and there is ample science linking these various ailments to vaccines.2
And although this news team spoke with two business owners in the pet industry who have concerns that too many vaccines are being given to pets, they are afraid to go on the record.
Perhaps it is sort of like what happens in medicine. If a doctor does not follow American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) or American Medical Association (AMA) guidelines, their state licensing boards can go after them and make their lives very difficult and even take away their license.
If the professional is a scientist investigating vaccine injury, they can lose their research funding, jeopardize consideration for tenure, or otherwise run afoul of the institution by which they are employed.
The upshot is that the media, health authorities, and vaccine makers can maintain the pretense that vaccine concerns are only forwarded by well meaning but fearful, hysterical, and ignorant parents, not by doctors and scientists.
But remember, the AAP and the AMA are trade groups charged with doing one thing: protecting the interests (read: financial) of their members.
Doctors give vaccines. Period. Well baby visits are a big part of pediatricians’ income. Doctors have a vested interest in protecting the reputation of vaccines and are not likely to lead the charge in investigating why so many kids are so sick today.
Oh, and don’t forget that the AAP and the AMA take money from the pharmaceutical industry. Big money. In fact, according to Media Matters, 20% of the AMA’s budget comes from the pharmaceutical industry and the AAP has taken millions in handouts from big pharma for things like building their new headquarter – but you won’t read that in the mainsteam.3
So if you think the AAP and the AMA guidelines represent what is best for patients, you might want to Think Again! And if you think these pharma funded trade groups are going to tell you the truth about vaccines, you also might want to Think Again!
