‘But something strange is happening in the world of immunology lately and a small evidence of it is that the Godfather of Autoimmunology is pointing to vaccines – specifically, some of their ingredients including the toxic metal aluminum – as a significant contributor to the growing global epidemic of autoimmune diseases.
The bigger evidence is a huge body of research that’s poured in in the past 15 years, and particularly in the past five years. Take for example, a recent article published in the journal Pharmacological Research in which Shoenfeld and colleagues issue unprecedented guidelines naming four categories of people who are most at risk for vaccine-induced autoimmunity.’

‘The United Nations, the World Health Organization and Nepalese authorities have announced efforts to vaccinate some 500,000 children against measles amid last week’s earthquake that killed more than seven thousand people.

In a statement Monday, Nepalese Unicef Representative Tomoo Hozumi said the squalid state of tent cities provides optimal conditions for the contagion to spread.’

NHS doctors working in private healthcare ‘on the side’ directly harming health service, says senior consultant
‘NHS doctors who work in private healthcare “on the side” are directly harming the health service, a senior consultant has said.
In a confessional article in medical journal the BMJ, cardiologist Dr John Dean said that he had stopped working in the private sector after realising the “direct adverse effects on the NHS”.
Many experienced NHS doctors run or work in a private practice alongside their NHS work. There are no rules against it in principle but consultant contracts stipulate there must be no conflict of interest between NHS and private work.
However, Dr Dean, who has himself supplemented his main income from Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust with private work, writes that any time spent in the private sector deprives the NHS of consultants’ hours, and warned that private practice creates “a perverse incentive” to increase NHS waiting times.’
