Totally dishonest vaccine pusher Paul Offit repeatedly fails to disclose his own financial conflicts of interest

Paul Offit

(NaturalNews) The prestigious Wall Street Journal performed reckless reporting last fall when they ran an opinion piece written by millionaire vaccine industrialist Paul Offit, MD, who alleged that the rise in respiratory infections was due to a decrease in vaccination rates. Offit's piece praises the efficacy of vaccines while leaving out one important detail: all the millions he's made as a vaccine developer.

As the Alliance for Natural Health-USA (ANH-USA) reports, the mini-bio at the bottom of the WSJ article conveniently fails to note Dr. Offit's massive conflict of interest, including that he's the inventor of the rotavirus vaccine RotaTeq, which is now recommended universally to all infants by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

While free to state to his opinion, the WSJ's reporting is incredibly irresponsible, as they failed to mention Offit's financial motivations. Whether the paper didn't know, or simply didn't care, is unknown.

Offit falsely attributes the rise of whooping cough, mumps and measles infections to inadequate vaccination

According to Offit, the rise in whooping cough, mumps and measles infections is due to the idea that fewer people are vaccinating. However, upon closer examination, it's evident that this is not the case.

Since the early 2000s, scientists have begun to notice that some receivers of the mumps vaccine are still falling ill to the disease. In April 2014, a mumps outbreak occurred at the Stevens Institute of Technology -- yet all of those infected had been fully vaccinated with two documented doses of the MMR shot, reports ANH-USA.

This means that the MMR vaccine is losing its efficacy, or that it never worked in the first place. Dr. William Schaffer, a pro-vaccine researcher at Vanderbilt University, admitted that the effectiveness of the MMR vaccine in preventing mumps is "not so good," and that the protection rate varies study to study, according to NPR.

NPR's report, and the statements of Schaffer, directly contradicts Offit's assertion that the rise in respiratory infections is due to a decrease in vaccination. Referring to the mumps outbreak at Ohio State University in which more than 200 students fell ill, NPR asks:

So the outbreak at Ohio State University is due to "vaccine failure," not declining immunization rates in the U.S.?

"Yes," Schaffer answered.

Offit pushes DTaP vaccine while failing to report its risks

The DTaP vaccine, the new version of the DTP vaccine, which caused brain damage in infants, is now administered to protect against diphtheria, tetanus (lockjaw) and pertussis (whooping cough).

The CDC recommends giving DTaP to women in the later stages of their pregnancy with the belief that the vaccine will pass immunity on to the fetus through the placenta. This is done during pregnancy based on the idea that most babies could become ill or die from the disease before they're old enough to receive the vaccine post-birth. The CDC recommends injecting pregnant women with this vaccine even though the DTaP vaccine insert[PDF] clearly states:

Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with Tripedia vaccine. It is not known whether Tripedia vaccine can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproductive capacity.


"The problem is that one of the elements of the vaccine, for whooping cough (pertussis), can be very dangerous," reports ANH-USA. "The whole-cell pertussis vaccine was created in 1912 and contains B. pertussis bacteria. Its toxins (both exotoxins and endotoxins) are some of most lethal in nature, causing tremendous inflammation throughout the body."

Exotoxins from the pertussis vaccine can cross the blood-brain barrier under certain conditions, triggering brain inflammation and sometimes causing permanent brain damage. The new version of DTaP is less reactive and with fewer side effects, but still contains the pertussis toxin (although at a lower dose) and can still cause inflammation of the brain.

"B. pertussis also produces endotoxins, and the immune system's reaction is similarly inflammatory, releasing so much histamine that it can sometimes cause high fever, swelling, diarrhea, collapse, shock, and death. The newer DTaP vaccine also contains these endotoxins."
