In Safety & Efficacy Part 2, I explained that David Graham (the FDA whistleblower) stated that in pharmaceutical drug testing, drugs are compared against a placebo (either a sugar pill or saline injection), and that a new drug isn’t compared to an existing comparable drug, to determine whether or not the new test drug works as good or better. He stated that testing drugs against each other is important to do. Vaccines are classified differently than pharmaceutical drugs, and with vaccines, a comparison to an existing related vaccine does often happen.
For safety on the other hand, vaccines are almost never compared to placebo, and this poses a serious safety problem. As a result of not comparing a vaccine to a placebo, the true extent of vaccine side effects are completely unknown.
And with that said, you will hear the media, the health authority, and your doctor make statements about the vaccine compared to placebo, or they will say a vaccinated group compared to an unvaccinated control group. Those statements need explanation. But to explain that properly, we first need clarity on the medical definition of placebo. Let's look to the CDC for this information, they define placebo as:
“A substance or treatment that has no effect on human beings.”
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the highest level of government (above the CDC) overseeing all things health related within the US, explains why using a placebo is important to do. They state (emphasis mine):
In undertaking a clinical trial, researchers don’t want to leave anything to chance. They want to be as certain as possible that the results of the testing show whether or not a treatment is safe and effective. The “gold standard” for testing interventions in people is the “randomized, placebo-controlled” clinical trial....A placebo is an inactive substance that looks like the drug or treatment being tested.
So that's how the HHS and CDC define placebo. And it's because of those definitions that I can tell you confidently that vaccine testing is almost never placebo controlled, with the placebo being a inactive substance which has no effect on human beings. Instead, when you hear the term “placebo” during a vaccine discussion, that "placebo" is of three things:
a different vaccine (for the same or a different illness)
the vaccine solution without the antigen (antigen is the vaccine virus or vaccine bacteria)
specific vaccine ingredient(s), like the aluminum adjuvant (the aluminum adjuvant in the vaccine boosts the immune response within the body)
And when the Health Authority says an “unvaccinated” person, that does not usually mean a person who has NEVER been vaccinated. Rather, “unvaccinated” also means one of three things:
a person who has inadequate health records to prove which vaccines they've received or not received
a person who is not fully up-to-date and vaccinated according to the standard schedule (even if they are missing only one vaccine)
And in reference to a person participating in a clinical trial who is “unvaccinated” that participant is:
3. a person who was given a control vaccine, either a competitor vaccine for the same
illness, or a completely unrelated vaccine for a different illness
In Safety and Efficacy - Part 16-3, I provide you a listing of all the vaccines used in Canada, showing the testing completed for each of those vaccines. That list shows that none of the vaccines were compared to a genuine placebo, despite the term placebo being used often.
As a result of never using a genuine placebo control or a never vaccinated control group, the safety data that is available is very limited. The reality of current vaccine safety testing is that most clinical trials have never established a baseline, looking to see if the vaccinated populations experienced DIFFERENT reactions compared to a CONTROL group which wasn't vaccinated and received a GENUINE PLACEBO.
To support why this is dangerous, I provide you with an article written by the American College of Pediatricians. In this article, they are discussing a potential adverse affect of Gardasil (an HPV vaccine). The safety issue discussed is just being recognized now, over ten years after Gardasil was originally approved for use in 2006. The condition in question is called premature ovarian failure (POF), and is also known as premature menopause. If Gardasil causes premature ovarian failure, the writer admits that the reaction was not identified in the pre-licensing safety trials, because the “placebo” used during the testing was a solution of vaccine ingredients.
The article states:
Few other vaccines besides Gardasil® that are administered in adolescence contain polysorbate 80. Pre-licensure safety trials for Gardasil® used placebo that contained polysorbate 80 as well as aluminum adjuvant. Therefore, if such ingredients could cause ovarian dysfunction, an increase in amenorrhea [loss of menstruation] probably would not have been detected in the placebo controlled trials.
It’s important to point out that Gardasil is now being recommended for girls as young as 9 years old. And it also needs to be noted that aluminum and polysorbate 80 are ingredients in many of the vaccines administered during infancy and childhood. If these ingredients cause premature ovarian failure, it would be nearly impossible to connect this resulting damage back to the vaccine, because the evidence of the damage would not reveal itself until years/decades after vaccination. Currently, vaccine clinical trials usually follow the health of the participants for a few days, weeks or months, and in some cases, for a couple years.
The varying degree and extent by which vaccination is affecting health is completely unknown. Until vaccine SAFETY trials use a genuine placebo, and until the health of trial participants is followed over the long term, we simply will remain ignorant to all the effects the practice of vaccination is having. Greater explanation of this will be detailed in the next four articles.
