Step Aside, Lord of the Rings, Vaxxed Is the Fantasy Epic of Our Age

Bravo! Well done.

Someday I'd love to have a chance to have a frank exchange of views with (former) doctor Wakefield about the ethics of him telling crazy stories to pad his own ego with no regard at all for the real children literally being killed as result of the irrational fear he is spreading. As a father, some of my favorite violent fantasies center around people like him who put kids' lives at risk like that.

Looks like at least one Stranger "reporter" (aka, propaganda artist) and at least one "editor" (aka, propaganda gatekeeper) have jumped on the Big Pharma bandwagon. Hurray for massively filthy stinking rich and extremely powerful mega-international corporations, right Stranger? Such corporations can never do wrong. Never. If there's a hint of anyone saying there is wrong, it must be mere "fantasy." Such wonderful propaganda. Thank you, Stranger! Or maybe not.

@2: here in the real world we can accept that the same corporations can do good AND bad things, and that this is normal. Vaccines aren't a bad thing, they are one of the greatest inventions ever, along with things like fire and the wheel. It has fundamentally changed human civilization by allowing cities like we have now. There is no evidence at all of any conspiracy, and vaccines which have been found to have negative side effects have been changed because of it. It's kind of like conspiracy theories. Although the government has done awful things (Tuskegee) in the past, they are not necessarily responsible for 9/11, newtown, etc.
The world has nuance.

I'm actually quivering with anger that this piece of shit is being shown here. Wakefield is a goddamn murderer, and the anti-vax (bowel) movement is a disgraceful public health crisis. What's next, Guild 45th? Holocaust deniers? Srebrenica deniers? David Ickes? Vlad Putin? Donald Trump?

@3 You appear to listen to propaganda and have no ability to research it to determine that it is propaganda. This makes you influenced by the propaganda. All of your talking points are propaganda talking points. Can you name one conspiracy by a corporation, ever, in the history of mankind? Or are all they all just "fantasy: for you? Corporations love non-thinkers like yourself. You are a slave to a carefully manufactured consensus opinion. It's called behavioral engineering. Maybe go educate yourself sometime but don't hold your breath. The propaganda feels too good for you, so you parrot and follow. You are on the "winning" team, emotionally, aren't you? Isn't that right?

Dr. Marcia Angell was the editor of the most prestigious medical journal in the world, “The New England Journal of Medicine,” and a senior lecturer at Harvard Medical School's Department of Global Health and Social Medicine.
On January 15, 2009, the NY Review of Books published Dr. Angell’s devastating assessment of medical literature:
“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.” (Marcia Angell, MD, “Drug Companies and Doctors: A Story of Corruption.” NY Review of Books, Jan. 15, 2009.)
She also wrote: “A review of 74 clinical trials of antidepressants, for example, found that 37 of 38 positive studies [that praised the drugs] were published. But of the 36 negative studies, 33 were either not published or published in a form that conveyed a positive outcome.”
Dr. Richard Horton, the current editor-in-chief of the Lancet – considered to be one of the most well respected peer-reviewed medical journals in the world: “The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.” (The Lancet, p. 1380, Vol. 385, April 11, 2015)
David J. Graham is an American epidemiologist who is the Associate Director of the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) Office of Drug Safety. In a 2005 interview, Dr. Graham stated the "FDA is inherently biased in favor of the pharmaceutical industry. It views industry as its client, whose interests it must represent and advance. It views its primary mission as approving as many drugs it can, regardless of whether the drugs are safe or needed." (Fraud Magazine, September/October 2005, “FDA Incapable of Protecting U.S., Scientist Alleges”)
Dr. William Thompson, epidemiologist, Immunization Safety Branch of the CDC: “I am a Senior Scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, where I have worked since 1998. I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed.” (Natural News, Aug. 27, 2014)

Wow Erik, talk about propaganda. Your review is clearly a knee jerk reaction based on fear that you suggest others are spreading. I sure wish someone with a more thoughtful and less biased view would have reviewed this movie.

The take away points were this:
1) That congress subpoena Dr. Thompson and investigate the allegations of fraudulent reporting.
2) That congress repeal the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act and hold MANUFACTURERS liable, not the public or doctors.
3) That the single measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine be made available immediately
4) That pharmaceutical drugs are tested accordingly. In fact, vaccines do not go through the rigorous testing or held to the same standards as other drugs put on our market.

No one in the movie EVER stated that vaccines are bad, nor did they make a case for people not getting vaccines. They just want further studies into the effects of administration and at specific ages.

I work with children who have been directly effected by vaccinations. I have also reviewed mountains of studies related to this matter and frankly, there are some holes in the research. I suggest you walk a day in their shoes, then you can write your 'fantasy' review.

Lost in this "review" is even one mention of the horrific epidemic on our hands.
A 10,000 percent increase in a disease that cripples children, and you say "trust big pharma?"
Anyone who has a friend with a family member that has this life shattering brand new brain damage can tell you that moms and dads know damn well it was the poisons in vaccines that destroyed their child.
Watch "Trace Amounts" like DeNiro told us to, there is NO level AT ALL of safe heavy metals that can be injected in to a child. NONE. All mercury and aluminum does damage, it only depends on how much.
You did not watch this documentary, obviously.
Blatant corporate propaganda in the Stranger. How strange.
