While the fear of a mutated virus turning into a pandemic is flouted virtually every year it seems, perhaps a greater concern is the potential for an engineered bioweapon somehow escaping out of the confines of a top level Bioterror lab -- a possibility that seems increasingly credible, when you consider the astounding safety "snafus" that occur from time to time. The recent incident at the Bioterror Germ Lab at the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta is just the latest scare, and it highlights the fact that seemingly unbelievable errors can and do occur, despite all guarantees to the contrary.
According to reports, the $214 million Bioterror Germ Lab has had repeated problems with airflow systems designed to help prevent the release of infectious agents....government documents and internal emails show. While the agency says no one has been infected, a biosafety expert says the problems appear to be major violations of laboratory operating standards.The area of the building with problems involves Biosafety Level 3 labs that can be used for experiments involving anthrax, the SARS coronavirus, monkey pox, dangerous strains of influenza and other microbes that have the potential to be used as bioweapons.
Apparently, working on a clone of the Bird Flu ( H5N1) virus, they mutated it to become 10 times more virulent and turned it into an airborne infection! The air from this research lab in one of the Biosafety Level buildings was being vented into a so-called "clean" area, where visitors are not required to wear protective gear, rather than being filtered and re-circulated. Thankfully, no one was in the area at the time and a new pandemic was averted. But sadly, earlier this year, a vaccine researcher at the Northern California Institute for Research died shortly after being infected with the Neisseria Meningitides bacteria in a similar fashion.
The CDC refused to grant interviews about the problems inside the high-containment labs and animal-holding area of the agency's 11 story Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratory. The records show that other CDC staff have expressed safety concerns about this new deadly virus and recommended that there be a Biosafety Level 4 lab made as the ultimate airflow containment facility.
MORE VACCINE NEWS: Two former Merck virologists have filed a federal lawsuit against their former employer, alleging Merck overstated the effectiveness of their mumps vaccine, which has cost the US government hundreds of millions of dollars. Merck's mumps vaccine was originally introduced 45 years ago. Since the 1970's it's been part of the notorious trivalent measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine. According to the lawsuit, Merck has defrauded the government by hiding the fact the mumps vaccine had lost effectiveness and is not living up to its claims.
A recent study published in the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine brought the issue of highly questionable vaccine trial standards to the fore yet again. It's worth noting that the Human Papilloma Virus vaccine was yet another fast-tracked vaccine, which devastated the lives of thousands of young women and their families since its premature release in the U.S. India halted HPV vaccine (Gardasil) trials after four girls died and 120 suffered serious side effects. A study into the ethics violations concluded that the vaccinations should not have been undertaken since it was impossible to effectively monitor the efficacy of the vaccine.
The Way I See It....the preceding information should make you aware of the fact that more, and certainly deeper, questions need to be asked when it comes to vaccine safety and efficacy; vaccine trials; and the scientific evidence backing up current claims and recommendations.
Remember that for the most part, most all of the lame-stream media portrays the entire vaccine process as something heroic and vital to the health of our culture, and they will be reluctant to ever promote any news that contradicts this belief. It is vital for you to carefully research ALL sides of the vaccine issue and not merely trust public health authorities, most physicians and the media, as they are largely influenced by massive conflict of interest and collusion. Seek other independent and objective views before you make any decisions about deciding to vaccinate.
Breaking News ! August 10, 2012 A new flu virus related to bird flu is killing seals and could pose a risk to humans. The H3N8 strain was discovered after the death of 162 harbour seals in New England in the U.S. last year. The strain is closely related to one that has been circulating in North American birds since 2002 but, unlike the bird strain, it has adapted to living in mammals. It has also evolved mutations that allow easier transmission and cause more severe symptoms. There is a risk that humans might be exposed to this virus sometime in future.
