The hidden story about vaccines, autism, drugs and food… Americas health has been BOUGHT. Your health, your family’s health. Now brought to you by Wall Street… “If you thought they hurt us with the banks, wait till you see what they’re doing to health care.” Vaccines. GMOs. Big Pharma. Three big, BIG, okay… HUGE topics in one film. Why? Why not 3 films, why put all this in one movie? Great question, 2 answers. 1st and most importantly: We need to band together. We need a mainstream film, not another radical movie that only interests the “already converted”. Over 5 million people supported Prop 37 in CA. Reportedly, over 2 million worldwide marched against Monsanto in a global protest. There...ane vaccine expansion, and our love affair with pharmaceuticals- it’s the same villain. It’s a risky story to tell, but would be a tragedy to passively consent to with silence. There is something horribly wrong with health care today. Huge money, billions and billions of dollars flowing into the same pockets. Meanwhile, MD’s aren’t being allowed to actually practice the art of medicine and anyone who questions vaccination safety, pharmaceuticals, factory farms, etc. is ridiculed and belittled. Meanwhile, the billions keep flowing, carried on a river of pain and anguish. Huge corporations funded by individual misery, one broken life at a time. Three huge stories, each worthy of multiple films, but each brought together by one staggering fact: it’s the same villain. These three story lines converge on Wall Street, in a tale of corruption, greed and shocking lack of conscience.

Infectious Disease News: << Alopecia>>  linked to HepB immunizations, in rare cases << Alopecia>>  linked to HepB immunizations, in rare cases ACIP voted to add this adverse event to the hepatitis B recommendation statement.  
April 1998

ATLANTA - A statement about << alopecia>>  will soon be added to the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices' (ACIP) hepatitis B recommendation statement, based on a unanimous vote by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) committee.

This decision follows a report that appeared in October 1997 which reviewed the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) reports of hair loss after immunizations. This report indicated that of 60 patients with reported << alopecia>> , 46 received hepatitis B vaccines. The cases ranged in age from 17 days to 56 years; 70% were adults and 83% were female.

Of the 60 reports, 16 had positive rechallenges for hair loss (recurrence following readministration of a suspect product), with nearly all (15) occurring after hepatitis B immunization.

"Although the association has not been proven, the VAERS rechallenge data are noteworthy and they raise some vaccine safety concerns," said Geoffrey S. Evans, MD, Division of Vaccine Injury Compensation, Health Resources and Services Administration. "It seems to me that we are obligated to provide some clarity."

Although the advisory committee voted to include a comment regarding << alopecia>>  following hepatitis B vaccination, they unanimously voted not to indicate causality.

"I think it's very important that we differentiate causality from association," said Samuel L. Katz, MD, Wilburt C. Davison professor and chairman emeritus of pediatrics, Duke University Medical School.

Robert T. Chen, MD, chief of Vaccine Safety and Development Activity, National Immunization Program, explained that when << alopecia>>  began appearing in VAERS, the CDC and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) decided to search for the same adverse event in reports to the Vaccine Safety Data Link (VSD), a similar surveillance system.

Steven B. Black, MD, Northern California Kaiser Permanente, together with Henry Shinefield, MD, and Robert L. Davis, MD, headed the VSD analysis and used data from the VSD Center at Group Health Cooperative in Puget Sound (GHC) and Northern California Kaiser Permanente (NCKP).
Incidence of << alopecia>> 
Using automated data and linking it with outpatient diagnostic codes, the initial results identified several hundred cases of << alopecia>>  from automated data and did not show a significant association with receipt of hepatitis B vaccine, Black explained.

He then completed a retrospective matched case-control study. Patients with visits for hair loss were identified and five controls were assigned for each case. A total of 392 cases, ages 0-7 years, were identified in NCKP and 130 cases, ages 7-17 years, were identified in GHC.

"The majority of cases in each group were in females, and the predominant age group was 10-17 years," Black said.

During 1995, within the 10-17 year age group, 81,876 doses of hepatitis B were administered and two cases of << alopecia>>  occurred; all within 14 days of vaccination.

"Based on this information, we're 95% sure that if there is an excess risk associated with hepatitis B vaccine, that it is 8.2 per 100,000 or fewer. I want to emphasize that it could be a lot less. It could be zero," Black said.

"We conclude at this point that this study did not demonstrate a statistically significant elevated risk of << alopecia>>  following hepatitis B vaccination in children," he said.

Recovery occurred in all cases in which outcome is known. All FDA-approved hepatitis B vaccines and the plasma-driven products were represented in both studies of VAERS and VSDL reports.

"The bottom line is that we've got a clear signal from safety surveillance indicating that vaccines probably can cause hair loss, but maybe only rarely," said Robert P. Wise, MD, MPH, FDA Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, lead author on the study of the VAERS reports.
