National Vaccine Information Center

Sep 02, 2014 - 0 comments

The non-profit National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC) is renewing its call for oversight of vaccine safety to be removed from the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS)
DHHS is legally responsible for regulating vaccines and also partners with pharmaceutical companies to develop them. It should not be legally responsible for assessing vaccine risks and monitoring the safety of vaccines
DHHS has a long history of limiting transparency and being less than completely honest about what it knows about individual susceptibility to vaccine reactions
A senior scientist at the CDC has issued a public statement admitting a 2004 MMR vaccine safety study “omitted statistically significant information” and that “the final study protocol was not followed”
NVIC has also called for the creation of an independent vaccine safety monitoring agency and independent vaccine research into health outcome differences between vaccinated and unvaccinated children

We now eat more than 100,000 times more vegetable oils than we did at the beginning of the century. Vegetable oils now make up about 7-8 percent of all calories consumed by the American public
Trans fats have been implicated in serious health problems. They interfere with basic cellular membrane functioning, and may promote heart disease
While trans fats are being recognized as harmful and are being largely eliminated, many restaurants, in their frying operations, are reverting back to using regular vegetable oils again
But vegetable oils still have the worrisome problem of degrading into toxic oxidation products when heated. One category called aldehydes are highly inflammatory, and may promote heart disease and Alzheimer’s
