"Winning words"

Hilary Butler - Sunday, August 31, 2008

Today's Sunday Star Times, has a letter penned by Paul Rutherford, Karori, Wellington. It's tragic that Rutherford (hopefully) "believes" the words he actually penned; sobbingly sad that the Sunday Star Times printed them at all, and indicative of the appalling state of knowledge in the media today, when editors and journalists at the Sunday Star Times, can't see how off the mark the letter was in the first place, and award it the "winning words". Continue Reading


The Gardasil 'miracle' coming undone?

Gardasil - whiter than white

Hilary Butler - Friday, August 29, 2008

What happens when Merck is unhappy with Gardasil immunization rates in USA are sub-par? It would appear that strings are pulled so that the National Institute of Health hands over $2.08 million dollars to Florida based Moffit Research Institute,  to study the problem.  Continue Reading


Gardasil - more thoughts

Hilary Butler - Thursday, August 28, 2008

After finding pancreatitis was a listed in VAERS, I then went to the VAERS data base to study the more "common" side effects from Gardasil, such as fainting, dizziness and nausea. Using key words in the symptoms column, such as "pancreas" and "diabetes", "fainting" "Dizziness" etc, it was disconcerting, just how many girls had what outwardly might be classified as a faint, but had symptoms consistent with blood sugar dysregulation:  Continue Reading


Pancreatitis from Gardasil NOT coincidental

Hilary Butler - Wednesday, August 27, 2008

Recently a letter was printed in the Medical Journal of Australia reporting on three women vaccinated with Gardasil who got pancreatitis. Naturally, Merck came out with their usual "correlation does not causation make." I'd suggest that Merck pull back and do a bit more thinking before opening their mouth. Continue Reading


Australian parents on the run

Hilary Butler - Sunday, August 24, 2008

Vaccination law in New South Wales, Australia is very clear.  If a mother is hepatitis B surface antigen positive, the parents can be offered immunoglobulin and the vaccine for the baby, and if the parents say, "No", the paper work is completed and that's it. But that's not what happened in Australia this week. Dr David Isaacs, who was not even involved in the case to begin with, decided it was time to make an "example" of two parents. What he didn't realise was that he picked the wrong target, and that they would go into hiding. Furthermore, he also forgot the story of Liam Holloway, and what happens when other parents are outraged when doctors abuse parents, as well as the law. Continue Reading


Point of Difference

Hilary Butler - Saturday, August 23, 2008

Funny how “debate” about the MENZB vaccine, becomes acceptable to the Herald, when it comes from the mouths of IMAC, rather than “anti-immunisation extremists”. But here’s the puzzle. The so-called “anti-immunisation extremists” sounding off in 2004 was primarily pro vaccine Ron Law, whose primary quibble was the hiding of just this sort of information. Funny too. He provided that information to journalists pointing to exactly that debate, but where did it get him? Jane O’Hallahan called him an “anti-immunisation menace”. We all rolled around laughing.  Continue Reading


"Democracy under attack"

Hilary Butler - Tuesday, August 19, 2008

Apparently, the inability of the Government, or Gardasil's manufacturer CSL to proceed with a full-on advertising campaign to promote Gardasil, is considered by the Herald to be an "attack on Democracy". Incredible. Mike Taylor of CSL biotherapies says “that there is a certain amount of risk" in the CSL planned advertising campaign. You bet there is, when huge sums money are involved. Most of CSL's planned propaganda, using newspapers, magazines, TV and radio advertisements has been deferred in case it is said to support the Government's pre-election campaign. That's what the Herald would like you to think. But there is another, more important story here. The failure of the Herald to discuss the real issues isn’t so much an attack on democracy, as an attack on readers and taxpayers.  Continue Reading


Immunise your children

Hilary Butler - Friday, August 15, 2008

About now, your local doctor and nurses will have been provided with the Ministry of Health’s July 2008 latest propaganda DVD called “Immunise your Children”.  This DVD will come as no surprise to those who have listened to the increasingly dictatorial and strident messages behind the closed doors of the annual IMAC immunisation conferences, or who saw the writing on the wall with IMAC’s 1997 brochure, which redefined the word “choice”.  It’s important for parents who don’t want to vaccinate, to see this DVD for two reasons:    Continue Reading


NZ 2008 schedule - Marketing Multiple vaccines

Hilary Butler - Monday, August 11, 2008

Have you noticed a subtle shift away from defining a vaccine by initials which stand for the number of vaccine components being given in the one needle? When you see GARDASIL, do you mentally realise that GARDASIL stands for Quadrivalent HPV vaccine, i.e. four different viruses in one needle?  When you see the title PREVENAR, do you realise that that is seven vaccines in one? Continue Reading
