Why Aren’t Public Health Organizations Like CIDRAP Warning Pregnant Women to Abstain from Aluminum or Mercury-containing Vaccines?
A few days ago, I emailed out what I consider overwhelming evidence that debunks the Zika Virus/Microcephaly thesis (that is fast becoming “conventional wisdom”) that we have all been bombarded with over the past month. The email was in the form of an open letter, with documentation, primarily addressed to one of the leading thought leaders in epidemiology in America over the past generation, Dr Michael Osterholm.
Dr Osterholm has been a consultant to the World Health Organization (WHO), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Department of Defense (DOD), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). He has undoubtedly done valuable work in the epidemiology of infectious diseases over the years.
In my open letter, I asked Dr Osterholm, and the readers, “Why Aren’t Public Health Organizations Like CIDRAP Warning Pregnant Women to Abstain from Aluminum or Mercury-containing Vaccines?” I could have also asked Dr Osterholm, given the fact that lead and mercury have lethal synergistic effects on brain tissue, why aren’t public health organizations not warning lead-intoxicated children in Flint, Michigan to not be given mercury-containing flu shots? (CIDRAP is the Center for Infectious Disease Research and Policy, a non-profit public health information group that Dr Osterholm founded and now directs. For more information on CIDRAP, go to http://www.cidrap.umn.edu.)
In the process of trying to understand CIDRAP’s mission, I watched its promotional video, which was designed to attract donors.
In the very first minute of the video, a breathless narrator says:
One sneeze and the world implodes. Infection takes flight and the next pandemic is born; and our fears become a historical fact.
The narrator quotes Osterholm as saying (totally contrary to the scary tone of the video),
Our job is not to scare people out of their wits, it is to scare them into their wits. We are the super-planners, the “worst case scenario” strategists.

For the better part of the last month, I have been doing extensive research into what might be behind the panicky reporting that the media has been doing about what I call “The Zika Virus Freak-out”.
Something’s Rotten in Denmark
As the readers of my Duty to Warn columns that discuss America’s over-diagnosed, over-vaccinated and over-drugged population have come to understand, there is “something rotten in Denmark” when it comes to public health policies. (The phrase, “something’s rotten in Denmark” is a comment that I frequently heard from my German-influenced mother when something didn’t add up).
On Day One of the Zika Scare reporting, I very easily discovered that Brazil had, early in 2015, (when women were getting pregnant, ready to deliver in less than 9 months), mandated that henceforth, all pregnant women were to be inoculated with the aluminum-adjuvanted vaccine, an injected combination of foreign substances that contained antigens for diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (whooping cough). The generic name for the trivalent vaccine was DTaP (or TDaP). The product literature that comes with every batch of the vaccine says:
