Cashing In on the Anti-Vaccine Scare

Science Denier Hall of Shame would like to thank @Takethatdoctors for bringing this to our attention.

Here we go again.3877757097_07237ecf7a_b

John P. Thomas of Health Impact News has published yet another article on the dangers of vaccine use. It’s titled ‘Dr. Andrew Moulden: Learning to Identify Vaccine Damage’

It starts out like this:

Dr. Andrew Moulden wanted every parent in the world to know about the harmful effects of vaccines. His desire was that everyone would reject the use of vaccines after examining the evidence of the harm they cause.[1]

Wow, this Moulden sounds like a helpful kind of guy! And he does have a ‘Dr’. right up there in front of his name… He continues:

Dr. Moulden’s research was intended to explain the harm that comes from vaccine use. Not just some vaccine use, but all vaccine use.[2]

Pretty scary, huh? ALL vaccines? Is this TRUE? Well, since John Thomas has learned so much about this (pseudo)science from Dr. Moulden, we’d better look into it too, no?

So, who might this Dr. Moulden be?

Andrew Moulden pushed an extreme form of anti-vaccine woo, claiming that vaccines are the causes of most illnesses and diseases, including autism.

He states:

IMO a good start is NO VACCINATION   “Vaccination” is a deadly fraud. It has “protected” very few and has injected into “vaccination” victims MANY diseases to include Alzheimer’s, Autism the ASD diseases,  the diseases of “vaccination” and the diseases of Weaponized Mycoplasma.[3]

and:

“Pediatricians are the last people we should trust with our children. They play on parents’ fears and on parental caring and love while they deliberately attack their young patients with known neurological poisons. Even though the 2004 Institute of Medicine report accepted that thimerosal, a mercury-based preservative in vaccines, can injure the nervous system, doctors continue to inject mercury into their young patients. In drinking water, mercury cannot exceed 2 parts per billion. A liquid with more than 200 parts per billion of mercury is considered hazardous waste. A mercury-containing flu shot vial has 25,000 parts per billion of mercury.”[4]

For a thorough thrashing of this anti-vaccine foolishness, refer to these posts: The Origins of the Vaccine-Autism Link Myth and Formaldehyde in Vaccines? Say It Isn’t So!

Oh, and he used to hawk ‘remote diagnoses’, divining what was wrong with children by having parents send him videos of their children looking into the camera. For a fee, of course.

If you want to know more about him (and I can’t imagine you’d need to) please, read all about him HERE

Well. It seems that Mr. John P. Thomas might have picked a better researcher to quote. It’s not as if he’s unfamiliar with Moulden. He actually wrote a book about him.

Luckily for us, John P. Thomas has a solution for us. Guess what it is? Homeopathy, of course! It does make some sort of perverse sense. An invented problem could very well have a curative in the form of pseudoscience. If you’re in any way swayed by the ‘woo’ that is homeopathy.

Now it’s time to get a bit more serious. While these two, and unfortunately many, many more are profiteering on the fears they cause or reinforce in people, the number of terrible diseases brought under control through the use of vaccines is strangely absent from their sales pitch.

Check out this infographic compiled by designer Leon Farrant (“morbidity” refers to the number of people getting sick from, but not necessarily dying of, the diseases):
