Feel free to jump to the heading "Safety Net #2" below, everything stated until then is a repeat of what was written on the first post.
When it comes to products that are available for purchase, there are many safety nets that are established, to protect consumers from dangerous products, and to ensure that products are designed, manufactured, and distributed in such a way that potential harms can be more easily minimized, and/or identified more quickly once in distribution. Unfortunately, there are shortcomings in many of these consumer safety nets, or industry has found a way to bypass some of those protective measures. As a result, unsafe products continue to be made and distributed widely. What’s more unique to vaccines though, is that every single safety net that was established to protect people and ensure product safety, all those protective measures have actually all been neutralized by the pharmaceutical industry. This neutralization has happened either by direct financial funding from pharma, or indirectly through Governmental conflicts of interest that affect internal policy, bureaucracy, and legislation. But before explaining how the consumer protective safety nets have been neutralized when it comes to vaccines, I’ll first list what those protective measures were, or should be. (Bolding in the list below denotes which topic point will be discussed in this article).
The consumer safety nets for vaccine products are:
Government and our political leaders who represent the people
Federal agencies that oversee vaccine regulation, research, safety, and distribution: These agencies include: Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), The Institute of Medicine (IOM). Yes, these agencies are all based in the United States, however their policy are often adopted on a global scale.
Scientific research and medical journals
Our doctors and the institutions where they are educated and employed
The legal system
Safety Net #2: The Federal Agencies (HHS, FDA, CDC IOM) that oversee that oversee everything about vaccines, includingvaccine regulation, vaccine safety, vaccine research, and vaccine distribution. In this post, we will be discussing how both the roles of the DHHS and IOM have been compromised by pharmaceutical financial influence.
NIH receives vaccine royalties - but will not disclose what amounts.

The IOM is not a Federal Government Agency. Instead, it is a non-profit organization established in 1970 as a component of the US National Academy of Sciences. The National Academy of Sciences is a nonprofit, self-perpetuating society of distinguished scholars engaged in scientific and engineering research, dedicated to the furtherance of science and technology, and to their use for the general welfare. Abbreviated NAS. The US Congress granted the NAS a charter in 1863 with the authority that requires it to advise the Federal Government on scientific and technical matters.
In 2004, a committee within the IOM provided strong recommendation to Federal Government, which Government has followed. At that time, the committee was looking at two specific vaccine/autism hypotheses. The final conclusion of this committee and the IOM was that autism research must not look directly at the autistic population to determine any susceptibles that might make them more vulnerable to vaccine reaction and injury. The IOM also concluded that all autism research must focus more broadly by only conducting epidemiological studies (population studies which cannot prove causation), in an effort to protect public health practices. In other words, the direction given was to not look more closely at sick children, because they feared that doing so would affect public support of current health practices.
