Interesting story from the science journal Nature:
Italian scientists protest funding for vaccine-safety investigationSome scientists in Italy are up in arms over a donation from the organization that oversees the nation’s professional biology qualification to an advocacy group that opposes the country’s policy of mandatory childhood vaccination.
The news comes as Italian politicians debate whether to continue with the mandatory vaccination policy, which was introduced in 2017 and requires parents to provide proof of ten routine vaccinations when enrolling their children in nurseries and preschools.
The group, Corvelva, announced that it had received €10,000 (US$11,350) from the Italian National Order of Biologists (ONB) on 26 October and says that it plans to use the money for research that investigates the safety and efficacy of commonly used vaccines.
Corvelva says that the research it proposes is necessary because previous studies it has funded, which have not yet been published in a peer-reviewed journal, indicate that some vaccines contain impurities, or lack the active ingredients they claim to contain.
ONB president Vincenzo D’Anna told Nature in an e-mail interview that there is a need for truly independent vaccine research because, in his opinion, work conducted in public laboratories and at universities is usually influenced or funded by companies that produce vaccines.
This is an interesting article for two reasons. One highlights one of the many problems in the science community these days, and the other a worrying piece of information hidden in there, lost in the gobbledegook.
If you’re experiencing cognitive dissonance when reading that article title you are not alone. Scientists are protesting funding for an investigation into the safety of vaccines. That should give one pause. And it’s fascinating that the article is focused on this bit of information, the fact that some scientists are outraged that this group, which is against mandatory vaccination, would be receiving funds to investigate the safety of vaccines. A lot of people picture scientists as these puritanical beings striving only for the truth, constantly modifying their hypotheses as new information becomes available and scrapping ideas and methods that are disproven. In reality, many are egotistical and have so much pride that they may “juke” the numbers or knowingly omit information that may hurt their research. And this makes sense when you consider many scientists are funded by large corporations or governments hoping for specific end results or have put in years or decades into a specific topic. Sometimes if they don’t reach those conclusions the funding dries up…and with it jobs and resources. Of course, this shouldn’t be the way things are done.
So it should make one wonder what the true motivation of these scientists are when they are adamantly against a group receiving funding to investigate the safety of vaccines. Is it possible big pharma has a LOT of money to be made with these vaccinations? For sure. Is there something more sinister going on? That’s yet to be found out. But the fact that these scientists are against this kind of research is very telling. You’d hope that scientists would be all for vigorously testing and retesting data and hypotheses. Especially when it comes to the health of the general public. All too frequently this “the science is settled” crap, whether it’s vaccines, or climate change, or whatever, is BS. It is not as nearly settled as one thinks. And even if the facts are well established, it doesn’t mean that every single vaccine is safe and works for every single situation out there.
Which brings us to the second point, really the one that should be more worrying. So they’ve tested some vaccines that have contained impurities or don’t even contain the active ingredients they purport to contain? If they don’t contain the active ingredients (I’m assuming the antigen but I’m using their wording) then what exactly does it contain? What exactly is its purpose?
I really don’t want to become one of those anti-vaccination people. I really don’t. But if we’ve learned anything from the past few years it’s to question EVERYTHING that the government or big corporations say and put out. The narrative is very rarely, if ever, the full truth (or may not contain any truth at all). I posted this and this last year, where institutions have pushed vaccinations without permission and some test results and side effects from the HPV vaccine. I used to write off the stuff about vaccines causing autism or other effects but we really can’t do that anymore. We cannot take any of it for granted. There are dark forces at work at the highest levels of a lot of these institutions that have objectives other than your general safety in mind when they peddle these vaccines to us. Mandatory vaccines sure would be a good way to spread something to a large amount of people if one really wanted to, no?
