New MMR study promoting vaccines was funded by Big Pharma
by Jonathan Benson, staff writer
(NaturalNews) The medical-industrial complex is trotting out yet another "study" that it claims proves that vaccines, particularly the MMR vaccine, are not linked to causing autism. However, a closer look at this so-called study reveals that like virtually all of the other medical research purporting that vaccines are safe and effective, it was directly funded by pharmaceutical interests trying to sell more vaccines.
It is an undeniable fact that not a single independent study has ever concluded that vaccines are completely safe and effective. The only ones to make such a claim are a direct product of industry sleight of hand - pseudoscience propaganda, if you will, meant to create the illusion that vaccine safety is fully vested when the exact opposite is actually the case.
The latest study to push this agenda comes from the Lewin Group, a healthcare consulting firm based out of Falls Church, Virginia. The mainstream media is already citing the paper as concrete evidence that vaccines don't cause autism, but what they are failing to tell their readers is that the group behind the study represents a wide range of players in the drugging and jabbing sectors of the medical economy.
Organization behind "vaccines don't cause autism" propaganda directly aligned with vaccine industry As it turns out, the Lewin Group works directly with drug corporations like Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, and Novo Nordisk, two of which actually manufacture vaccines. The Lewin Group is also in partnership with pharmaceutical associations and organizations like the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), whose "Fact Book" claims that "[g]overnments have reasons to promote vaccination."
This same group advocates for the continued development of new vaccines to address infectious diseases that it claims "remain uncontrolled." This is a clear conflict of interest because it is highly unlikely that PhRMA or any other association that works with the Lewin Group would ever play a part in producing a study that questions the safety or effectiveness of the products it markets and sells.
It is also worth noting that some of the other organizations in partnership with the Lewin Group include the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Heritage Foundation, not to mention a number of other hospitals and healthcare systems that actively promote vaccines as being among the greatest public health achievements of the Twentieth Century.
UnitedHealth, which owns the Lewin Group, actively promotes vaccines through its health insurance and vaccination campaigns The Lewin Group is also aligned with various medical insurance programs like Blue Cross Blue Shield and the Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, two corporate entities that just so happen to provide health coverage for vaccines. Both of these insurance groups also consider vaccinations to be "preventive care" and both actively push deadly vaccines like the flu shot and HPV on young children.
Perhaps the biggest red flag with the Lewin Group, though, is its owner: UnitedHealth Group, another major promoter of vaccines. UnitedHealth, as you may recall, is the same entity that lobbied heavily to eliminate a "public option" from Obamacare, which ended up forcibly adding many previously-uninsured customers onto the company's rolls.
"UnitedHealth lobbyists used work provided by the Lewin Group as a basis for its argument that providing a public option would kill the private insurance industry," wrote Brandon Turbeville and Healther Callaghan in a recent piece for Activist Post. "Those few democrats in the U.S. Congress that disagreed were apt to point out the conflict of interest between the Lewin Group's findings and UnitedHealth's desires, referring to the Lewin Group's work as 'so-called analysis' and 'suspect.'"
The Lewin Group isn't an independent healthcare consultant; it's a front group for vaccine corporations If you are not yet convinced, check out the following statement issued by UnitedHealthcare about its "Medicare and Retirement Vaccination Campaign," which admittedly pushes vaccines on adults aged 65 years and older:
"The vaccination campaign uses demographic and regional information with targeted messaging for diverse populations across age, race and ethnicity to increase vaccine rates. This program was designed to increase the influenza and pneumonia vaccination rates in older adults by increasing their awareness of the diseases and promoting convenient access points (e.g. pharmacies)."
This is the same entity that recently published a study claiming that MMR vaccines don't cause autism. Do you see why this is a problem? The Lewin Group is anything but an independent healthcare consultant. It is a disingenuous front group promoting vaccines on behalf of its partners, who stand to lose billions of dollars in revenue if vaccine rejection continues to gain momentum.
"The truth is that there has never been a study proving vaccines safe or effective that was not connected to a pharmaceutical company or a vaccine maker," warns Activist Post. "The mainstream media's recent jaunt has yet to change this fact."
