Is CDC a vaccine company? Okay, let’s take this news piece by piece.

Online news agencies have reported lately on two rather unusual news events concerning the US$30 billion a year vaccine industry. The first one involves U.S. President Donald Trump announcing a plan to establish a commission headed by Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (RFK) to investigate vaccine safety and scientific integrity. The second news features RFK and actor Robert De Niro declaring a US$100,000 reward to any scientist (or someone else) who could provide conclusive proof of the safety of mercury (in the form thimerosal) in vaccines.

Although mainstream media covered these news events, they also bashed RFK and De Niro for being “anti-vaccine”. Even though both men assured them they are pro-vaccine and have all their children vaccinated.

What those two celebrities were concerned about was the “volume of vaccines” that was being added to the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) childhood immunization program, particularly the growing list of vaccines, and the presence of mercury in those vaccines.

Perhaps it is not realized by a lot of people that the CDC is the entity that decides the immunization schedule. And sometimes failure to comply with the schedule of vaccinations means children can be refused admittance to public schools. Currently, CDC has doubled the number of required vaccines a child should have since the mid-1980s – currently nearly 40 doses now before the age of 2 years.

Of course, the CDC would have everyone believe that autism numbers have increased 10 times more since the 1980s. And that asthma cases have more than doubled in the same period.

While the government, the media, and big pharma have been out busy defending the need for vaccines now, a very glaring fact overlooked by most people who have not been even played up by the media – that is of the CDC’s own direct relationship and involvement in the vaccine industry. Well, how did that happen?

Of course, the CDC also professes its mandate for being, which is to assess vaccine safety. Also to identify potential and current health problems brought about by vaccines, ascertain if a health problem is caused by a specific vaccine or pathogen. And monitor the safety and effectiveness of a vaccine. The CDC also coordinates with other federal government agencies and stakeholders to determine the public’s response to the vaccines and to communicate the vaccines’ benefits to health.

So it’s assumed that the CDC should be 100% engrossed only in education, promotion and policing of vaccines and vaccine issues. Probably not!

There were reports before about RFK asserting that the CDC holds patents on over 20 vaccines. To verify this piece of information, Ginger Taylor of Green med Info recently asked friend Mark Blaxill, an Intellectual Property expert, to investigate if the CDC really owns 20 patents. What they uncovered was short of amazing!

To everyone’s amazement, Blaxill found not only 20 but 57 patents registered and granted to the CDC. Since one patent was not related to a vaccine, the official vaccine number is 56. The patents on vaccines cover a range of diseases: flu, Hepatitis A, rotavirus, SARS, gastroenteritis, Pneumococcal disease, and Zika among many others.

So much for transparency and impartiality! How could the CDC be impartial enough to assess the safety and robustness of a vaccine when they own the patents to a lot of them? Considering that each vaccine costs as much as half a billion dollars to develop. You can just imagine how much vested financial interest the CDC has on pharmaceutical products!

“The CDC has a very hard time investigating in an unbiased way what is happening to our children because of ideological and financial conflicts of interest,” perfectly sums up Barbara Loe Fisher, National Vaccine Information Center president.

What do you think of this news? Do you believe that the CDC has a right to own the patents for vital anti-disease vaccines? Share your opinions in the comments section below!
