De Niro takes the giant leap

Marco Cáceres di Iorio

“Nobody seems to want to address [the issue of whether vaccines cause autism] or they say they’ve addressed it and it’s a closed issue. But it doesn’t seem to be because there are many people who will come out and say, ‘No. I saw my kid change like overnight. I saw what happened and I should have done something and I didn’t.’ So there’s more to this than meets the eye, believe me. The thing is to shut it down—there’s no reason to. If you’re scientists, let’s see, let’s hear. Everybody doesn’t want to hear much about it, it’s shut down. … There is a link [between vaccines and autism] and they are saying there isn’t and there are… other things there. I don’t know, I’m not a scientist but I know because I’ve seen so much reaction of just ‘let’s find out the truth.’ … I think the movie [Vaxxed

Gary Wormser reports global immunosuppression from OspA/Borrelia

Cryme Disease - Unscrambling the CDC's DNA Patent Profiteering Bullshit

Somatoformia, a closer look:

“We have previously demonstrated that proteins of B. burgdorferi are capable of modulating human cellular immune responses [7]. Suppression of in vitro mitogen- or antigen-mediated proliferative responses of lymphocytes and reduced production of interleukin-2 (IL-2) from lymphocytes were demonstrated using protein extracts of B. burgdorferi. These early studies were confirmed by a report of de Souza et al. [8], who observed that B. burgdorferi infection in mice resulted in impaired T and B cell proliferation to mitogens and reduced IL-2 and IL-4 production. The nature of the B. burgdorferi proteins responsible for suppression of cellular immunity has not been defined. In this study we examined the modulating activity of a recombinant outer surface protein A (OspA) vaccine preparation on cellular immune responses.”

The Anti-Science Epidemic and CounterPunch

I gotta hand it to the folks at CounterPunch. Let’s just chalk this up as, someone was taking a much-needed vacation and a shoddy opinion piece accidentally slipped through the editorial review crack. During the the time it took me to read the article and write my response, below, the article was unpublished from the Web. Bravo, CounterPunch.

Sirs,

Your site and its information normally are top-notch, well-researched, sensible and factual. Not today. Did someone declare “Opposite Day” when I wasn’t listening? I urge you to unpublish Julian Vigo’s piece of unscientific drivel, lest your reputation be sent down the toilet by this “science philosopher” AKA not-a-scientist but self-important enough to decide who the real scientists are.

In fact, she cites psychology in trying to prove her point that “science” has Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) and Lyme disease all figured out. Former director of the National Institutes of Mental…
