Yekra is a revolutionary new distribution network for feature films.



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.

Gandhiselvan told the Lok Sabha on Friday in a written response to a question. “For assessing the health services needs and preparedness for introducing [HPV] vaccines into the health services in the future, PATH, an international NGO, was given permission for a post-licensure observational study of HPV vaccination in Khammam district [Andhra Pradesh] and Vadodara district [Gujarat].”

* ►April 17, 2010 - Is there an ethical obligation to complete polio eradication? (free full text) - journal article (The Lancet) - "The preceding arguments suggest a strong ethical case for pursuing polio eradication. However, the success of eradication and maintaining a polio-free world post-eradication May depend on the global coordination of switching from oral polio vaccine to the more costly inactivated polio vaccine that resource-poor countries cannot afford. Although the global health community has yet to reach consensus on this point, many experts agree that this switch in vaccines is required to reduce the risk of harm caused by circulating vaccine-derived polioviruses once wild poliovirus transmission has been interrupted globally. Who should pay for the cost of this switch? Wealthy nations have strong moral reasons to subsidise the cost of switching from oral to inactivated polio vaccine. Self-interest May be the strongest reason. Although polio has been absent from the developed world for over 30 years, the threat of re-emergence looms in a world where people and viruses easily cross international borders."

So far, health agencies — including Global polio eradication initiative — had been advocating the use of Oral Polio Vaccine (OPV) instead of the inactivated vaccine. The OPV was believed to induce gut immunity , meaning a vaccinated child does not excrete the virus, through which the disease spreads. But the study — conducted by experts from the Imperial College London, National Polio Surveillance Project, and Global Polio Eradication Initiative, project of WHO — points at the potential of OPV-vaccinated children in transmission of wild virus as well."
