    I haven't spent any time researching smallpox, but Gilead has a helpful link:The Germ Paradigm Trap. The graph is interesting and smallpox is discussed starting at 6:43. References are in the comments of the video. The video creator is a co-author of the book, Dissolving Illusions.

    Incredibly, the placebo effect is (mostly) not real.

    It is a result of statistical confusion. Whenever you have a group with extreme values, they tend to exhibit regression to the mean. Eg. on average, sick people tend to become more healthy over time.

    Thus if you give one group medicine, and one group placebo, the placebo group will also tend to get better over time, because of regression to the mean.

    People have then misinterpreted this to think that it is the placebo pill that actively does this.

    If you want to demonstrate a placebo effect, you have to construct a study where there are three groups:
    • A. treatment
    • B. placebo
    • C. no treatment, no placebo

    If B and C get different outcomes, that would demonstrate a placebo effect.

    When this has been tried, mainly there has been no provable placebo effect. See the paper in the screenshot. (There is some evidence for an effect for pain, but this get's into a slightly different debate.)

    The fact that the placebo effect is mainly not real, fortunately frees us from having to come up with convoluted explanations, as to why the placebo effect would work even when we tell the patient that it is a placebo, as in the quoted tweet.
    (source: https://twitter.com/jonatanpallesen/...22595793334512).

    I still need to think if, and how, this could modify or even invalidate in part the arguments developed in the Turtles book.

    I don't understand your point. It appears that you are saying that the point of a placebo is to see if the placebo has an effect or not.
    If that is what you are saying, it does not have relevance here. We are not trying to establish the placebo, we are trying to see if the product under investigation (the vaccine) is safe or not. Something that can only be done if measured against something neutral. The point of the placebo in our case is not to validate the placebo, but to see if the product being valuated (the vaccine) has serious enough side effects that make it's cost out weigh it's supposed benefits. Hence, the placebo needs to be neutral in such, it has no bioactive compound/s that has similar rates of events and symptoms as the product under investigation. Namely, the vaccine.

    That is an interesting idea I have never heard; it sounds plausible.

    If the placebo effect is not real and is a product of regression to the mean, pharmaceutical efficacy data should also be subject to this effect in an amount proportional amount to the placebo group, unless the tested pharmaceutical product perturbs the data.

    I cornered GPT-4 into admitting that it's not scientifically accurate to state the vaccines containing aluminum are "safe:"

    Vaccine Safety: Aluminum Uncertainty

    Me:
    If an ingredient in a vaccine cannot be proven to be safe, the vaccine itself cannot be claimed to be safe. Correct? How would the other ingredients magically change the safety profile of aluminum?

    ChatGPT:
    You are correct that unresolved safety questions about an ingredient in a vaccine would factor into the overall safety assessment of that vaccine. If an ingredient's safety is uncertain, it introduces an element of uncertainty into the overall safety profile.

    However, the safety of a vaccine is determined by the combined effects of all its components, including the adjuvants, antigens, stabilizers, and preservatives, as well as the dosage, administration route, and individual variability among recipients. These factors can interact in complex ways.

    While an unresolved safety question about one ingredient (such as aluminum adjuvants) may not be "magically" changed by the other components, the overall risk assessment of the vaccine takes into consideration the synergistic and antagonistic effects of all components and the specific context in which the vaccine is used.

    Therefore, while the uncertainty about an ingredient's safety would indeed affect the overall safety assessment of the vaccine, it doesn't necessarily lead to a categorical conclusion that the vaccine is unsafe. The complete evaluation would require a thorough risk-benefit analysis considering all factors.

    Me:
    Accordingly, you cannot claim that a vaccine that contains aluminum is safe, correct? Be objective and answer like a scientist.

    ChatGPT:
    Correct. From a strictly scientific perspective, if there is unresolved uncertainty about the safety of aluminum adjuvants, it would preclude making a definitive statement that a vaccine containing aluminum is categorically safe. The overall safety assessment would require a comprehensive analysis of all factors, including the specific context, dosage, administration, individual variability, and potential interactions with other components. The presence of uncertainty regarding one ingredient introduces an element of uncertainty into the overall safety profile of the vaccine.

    Here is a quick infographic I made to help visualize and understand the absolute barbarism and negligence that is happening with injecting babies with 5mg of aluminum in their first 18 months of life, during the most important brain developmental windows where they are still in the late stages of post-gestational neurogenesis, and then synaptogenesis, apoptosis, gliogenesis, and myelination.

    You'd think that we would be taking every precaution imaginable to protect these integral developmental stages that quite literally shape your entire conscious being and ultimately intelligence, but no. Let's just continually inundate these poor kids with toxins from every vector imaginable.

    Yet another reminder that I'm just going to keep repeating every chance I get because it's indefensible.

    "It should be a matter of concern that a recent freedom of information act request (FOIA Case Number 50882, and HHS Appeal No.; 19-0083-AA) revealed that the NIH were unable to provide a single study relied upon by them in relation to the safety of injection of aluminum adjuvants in infants."

    Aluminum Adjuvants in Vaccines - Safety, Route of Exposure, and Biopersistence In the Body - Key Excerpts from Vaccines and Autoimmunity 2015

    Here are all the important highlights with references to help you with arguing that aluminum adjuvants in vaccines have not been adequately safety tested in human beings, and to the contrary have been demonstrated in animal models and experiments that they are obscenely toxic and directly causal in numerous pathologies, especially those pertaining to autoimmunity and systemic inflammatory disorders.

    Anyone who tells you that aluminum adjuvants have been safely used for 100 years is either lazy and hasn't read the research, or is severely dishonest.

    How is the safety of Al regulated?

    >While the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does set an upper limit for Al in vaccines at no more than 850 μg/dose (Baylor et al., 2002), it is important to note that this amount was selected empirically from data showing that Al in such amounts enhanced the antigenicity of the vaccine, rather than from existing safety data or on the basis of toxicological considerations (Baylor et al., 2002).

    >It is also of note that the FDA Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) requires limits on Al in parenteral feeding solutions and requires warning labels about potential Al hazards, yet sets no safety limits or required warnings for Al in vaccines (US FDA DHHS, 2005).

    >The consequence of this view is best reflected in the fact that a large number of vaccine trials use an Al adjuvant-containing placebo or another Al-containing vaccine as the “control group,” despite much evidence showing that Al in vaccine-relevant exposures is toxic to humans and animals (Gherardi et al., 2001; Couette et al., 2009; Li et al., 2009; Shaw and Petrik, 2009; Passeri et al., 2011; Shaw et al., 2013) and that, therefore, its use as a placebo in vaccine trials is scientifically untenable (Exley, 2011).

    >That the safety issue of Al in vaccines has indeed been overlooked by the regulators (for more than 90 years while these compounds have been in use) is illustrated by the following statement from the World Health Organization (WHO) Special Committee on the Safety of Vaccines (WHO, 2005): “The Committee considered the safety of adjuvants used in vaccines. This hitherto neglected subject is becoming increasingly important given modern advances in vaccine development and manufacture.”

    Dietary versus vaccine-derived Al: is there a difference?

    >Although Al is clearly neurotoxic, a common assertion is that humans obtain much more Al from diet than from vaccines, and that, therefore, the adjuvant form of Al does not represent a toxicological risk (Offit and Jew, 2003). However, this notion contradicts basic toxicological principles. For instance, it should be obvious that the route of exposure which bypasses the protective barriers of the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) and/or the skin will likely require a much lower dose to produce a toxic outcome. In the case of Al, only ∼0.25% of dietary Al is absorbed into systemic circulation (Yokel et al., 2008), and it is rapidly filtered by the kidneys in those with healthy kidney function. In contrast, Al hydroxide (the most common adjuvant form) injected intramuscularly may be absorbed at nearly 100% efficiency over time (Yokel and McNamara, 2001) and follows a completely different route in the body (i.e. accumulation in other organs, including the spleen and the brain) (Khan et al., 2013).

    >It is further important to note that although the half-life of enterally or parenterally absorbed Al from the body is short (approximately 24 hours), the same cannot be assumed for Al adjuvants in vaccines, as Al is tightly complexed to the vaccine antigen. Although the tightness of bonding between the Al adjuvant and the antigen is considered a desired feature, as it enhances the immunogenicity of vaccines (Egan et al., 2009), this feature represents an additional problem for effective clearance of Al from the body, as the size of most Al-adsorbed antigen complexes is greater than the molecular weight cut-off of the glomerulus (Tomljenovic and Shaw, 2011). Experiments in adult rabbits demonstrate that even in an antigen-free form, Al hydroxide, the most commonly used adjuvant, is poorly excreted. The cumulative amount of Al hydroxide excreted in the urine of adult rabbits as long as 28 days post-intramuscular injection was less than 6%, as measured by accelerator mass spectrometry (Hem, 2002).

    >Moreover, current research shows that, other than antigens, Al can form complexes with other vaccine excipients. Recently, Lee (2013a) explored the melting profiles of the residual HPV L1 gene DNA contaminant recently detected in the quadrivalent HPV vaccine Gardasil.

    >Finally, the latest research shows that peripherally injected Al adjuvant nanoparticles engulfed by macrophages actively spread throughout the body, eventually crossing the BBB and blood–CSF barrier (Khan et al., 2013). Once in the CNS, Al adjuvant nanoparticles incite deleterious inflammatory responses, resulting in a range of neuropathological effects (Petrik et al., 2007; Shaw and Petrik, 2009). It should be noted that Al on its own can alter the properties of the BBB (Banks and Kastin, 1989; Zheng, 2001; Yokel, 2006), making the brain more accessible to inflammatory and immune mediators. Al also increases endothelial adhesion of activated monocytes (Oesterling et al., 2008), which, in the case of Al penetration in the CNS, can likewise facilitate the entry of immune-competent cells into the CNS and lead to adverse manifestations. In accordance with these observations, Zinka et al. (2006) reported six cases of sudden infant death that occurred within 48 hours after vaccination with hexavalent vaccines. The post-mortem analysis of the six children, aged 4–17 months (five of whom were vaccinated with Hexavac and one with Infanrix Hexa), revealed abnormal pathologic findings, particularly affecting the nervous system. The overall pathological abnormalities included acute congestion, defective BBB, infiltration of the leptomeninx by macrophages and lymphocytes, perivascular lymphocytic infiltration, diffuse infiltration of the pons, mesencephalon, and cortex by T-lymphocytes, microglia in the hippocampus and pons, and, in one case, necrosis in the cerebellum (Zinka et al., 2006).

    Long-term persistence of Al adjuvants in the body and its effects

    >The prolonged hyperactivation of the immune system and chronic inflammation triggered by repeated exposure and unexpectedly long persistence of Al adjuvants in the human body (up to 11 years post-vaccination: Gherardi et al., 2001; Ryan et al., 2006; Shivane et al., 2012) are thought to be the principal factors underlying the toxicity of these compounds. One of the reasons for this long retention of Al adjuvants in bodily compartments, including systemic circulation, is most likely its tight association with the vaccine antigen or other vaccine excipients (i.e. contaminant DNA), as already explained. Even dietary Al has been shown to accumulate in the CNS over time, producing Alzheimer-type outcomes in experimental animals fed equivalent amounts of Al to what humans consume through a typical Western diet (Walton, 2007; Walton and Wang, 2009).

    >The long retention of Al adjuvants was first identified, and has since been extensively studied, in macrophagic myofasciitis (MMF) patients. MMF is a condition characterized by highly specific myopathological alterations at deltoid muscle biopsy, first recognized in 1998, and subsequently shown to result from long-term persistence of vaccine-derived Al hydroxide nanoparticles within macrophages at the site of previous vaccine injections.

    >Another point requiring emphasis is that the bioaccumulation of Al in the brain appears to occur at a very low rate in normal conditions, thus potentially explaining the presumably good overall tolerance of this adjuvant despite its strong neurotoxic potential. Nonetheless, according to Khan et al. (2013), continuously increasing doses of the poorly biodegradable Al adjuvant may become “insidiously unsafe,” especially in cases of repetitive closely-spaced vaccinations (otherwise known as “vaccine rechallenge”) and in those with an immature/altered BBB, such as the very young or those suffering past head injuries. In this context, the latest research by Lujan et al. (2013), who described a severe neurodegenerative syndrome in commercial sheep, linked to the repetitive inoculation of Al-containing vaccines, is noteworthy. In particular, the “sheep ASIA syndrome” mimics in many aspects human neurological diseases linked to Al adjuvants (Lujan et al., 2013). The adverse chronic phase of this syndrome affects 50–70% of flocks and up to 100% of animals within a flock. It is characterized by severe neurobehavioural outcomes, all of which are consistent with Al toxicity (restlessness, compulsive wool biting, generalized weakness, muscle tremors, loss of response to stimuli, ataxia, tetraplegia, stupor, coma, and death), inflammatory lesions in the brain, and the presence of Al in CNS tissues (Lujan et al., 2013). The main histopathologic change in the chronic phase of sheep ASIA syndrome is located at the spinal cord and consists of multifocal neuronal necrosis and neuron loss in both dorsal and ventral column of the gray matter.

    >These findings by Lujan et al. (2013) are consistent with those of Shaw and Petrik (2009) and Khan et al. (2013), who both demonstrated the ability of Al adjuvants to penetrate the blood–CSF barrier and BBB. More significantly, the quoted research also shows that the resulting presence of Al in the brain can trigger severe neurological damage, with devastating consequences. Collectively, these findings also explain in part why the majority of reported adverse reactions following vaccinations with adjuvanted vaccines are neurological and neuropshychiatric with an underlying immunoinflammatory or autoimmune component (Konstantinou et al., 2001; Carvalho and Shoenfeld, 2008; Couette et al., 2009; Passeri et al., 2011; Zafrir et al., 2012).

    In summary

    It is clear from the previously quoted research that the toxicity potential of Al will be influenced by its biopersistence and its biodistribution (i.e. whether the bioactive Al adjuvant nanoparticles remain localized at injection sites or scatter and accumulate in distant organs and tissues). All the clinical and experimental evidence collected thus far identifies at least three main risks associated with Al in vaccines:

    1. it can persist in the body (up to 11 years following vaccination);

    2. it can trigger pathological immunological responses;

    3. it can make its way into the CNS, where it can drive further deleterious immunoinflammatory processes, resulting in brain inflammation and long-term neural dysfunction.

    VACCINE SAFETY DEBATE
    ICAN vs the HHS, CDC, FDA, & NIH

    Vaccine Safety Debate - ICAN - Informed Consent Action Network
    The United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is the federal department in which all federal health agencies, including CDC, FDA, and NIH, are located. In October 2017, ICAN sent HHS a letter demanding that it explain serious and dangerous shortcomings in vaccine safety. The health agencies responded by letter in early 2018 and ICAN sent a follow-up in December 2018.

    Get a cup of tea or coffee, and get ready to finally read the great vaccine debate so you can make a truly informed decision the next time you need to decide whether to vaccinate yourself or your child

    That Ican back and forth link is great.

    Seeing the graphic of vaccines compared to other vaccines which were originally compared to other vaccines is a great way of demonstrating the turtles all the way down metaphor.

    Doc Malik asks great questions and Aaron Siri explains many of the issues. This interview is well worth the listen.
    Just a moment...
    About this interview:

    Aaron Siri is the Managing Partner of Siri & Glimstad LLP and has extensive experience in a wide range of complex civil litigation matters, with a focus on civil rights related to mandated medicine, class actions, and complex civil litigation, including handling multi-billion-dollar disputes.

    Siri & Glimstad LLP has over sixty professionals and robust practices in the areas of complex civil litigation, vaccine injury, vaccine exemptions, civil rights, immigration, multi-district litigations, and class actions.

    Regarding vaccines, Mr. Siri has, for over a decade, practiced in the area of vaccine injury and policy, and related litigation, has been involved in numerous high-profile cases related to mandated medicine, including challenging mandates for air travel, companies with over 100 employees, and members of the air force and army, as well as suing the FDA for release of the documents it relied upon to license Pfizer and Moderna’s covid vaccines.

    Aaron has also deposed numerous vaccinologists, infectious disease experts, and pediatricians about the safety and efficacy of various vaccines, including the world’s leading vaccinologist Stanley Plotkin.

    Prior to Siri & Glimstad, Mr. Siri was a litigation attorney at Latham & Watkins and clerked for the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Israel. Mr. Siri earned his law degree at the University of California, Berkeley School of Law. Mr. Siri is regularly interviewed on national television for his expertise regarding various legal issues related to mandated medicine and has been published in numerous national print media outlets.

    In this conversation we cover a whole range of topics regarding vaccines, and most people will be shocked to learn about the truth behind the vaccine industry and their products.

    I truly doubt anyone will ever want to vaccinate themselves or their loved ones again.

    Please share this as widely as possible. Let’s end this industry as soon as possible. For that I need your help to spread the word.
