Part 2: Unanswered questions about the Hepatitis B vaccine.

Hilary Butler - Tuesday, June 28, 2011

The presentation to the American Institute of medicine (IOM) about the Hepatitis B programme in New Zealand was a full folder, which included Professor Ralph Edward's findings of the catch-up campaign, and further documentation of the events relating to the memos which preceded the removal of Hepatitis B from the "at birth" schedule in New Zealand.  There was clear, unequivocal evidence of anaphylaxis of many degrees, resulting from the Hepatitis B vaccine.  Dr Morris went with the folder, to give an oral submission.

The findings of this group, were then published in a book in 1994.  A copy duly dropped out the sky onto my desk with a thunk, and a personally signed letter Dr Katherine Stratton about how wonderful the book was. She said amongst other drivel:

"The Vaccine Safety Committee worked hard to produce a report that is both scientifically sound and readable"

Imagine my surprise, on reading the Hepatitis B chapter, to find this statement on page 229"Anaphylaxis was not observed in the 166,757 children vaccinated with a plasma-derived vaccine in New Zealand (Morris and Butler, 1992)"...

Dr Morris was similarly unimpressed and a letter was sent to Dr Stratton, and the other editors who were on the committee.  No-one answered it.  I faxed it to her office, receiving confirmation of receipt, and that wasn't answered either. Continue Reading


Part 1 of 3. Unanswered questions about the Hepatitis B vaccine

Hilary Butler - Monday, June 27, 2011

In the early 1990s, the American National Institute of Medicine (IOM) was mandated to enquire into the safety of childhood vaccines.  At the time, my concern was Hepatitis B, because New Zealand was one of the few countries in the world implementing Hepatitis B vaccination at birth, as well as doing "catch-up" campaigns in children, adolescents and various adult groups.  It seemed logical that what had been learned here, should be presented to the National Institute of Medicine.  Dr J. Anthony Morris co-wrote the presentation, which will be the subject of Part 2.

The neonatal Hepatitis B vaccine was removed from the schedule and placed with the 6 week shots because "minor side effects could be confused with more serious Ill health." A study of the language is instructive...

On 9th April, 1992, a New Zealand doctor also wrote a presentation to the IOM. The doctor said that in the decades before Hep B was given at birth, their medical practice had never had to use antibiotics in any babies in their care, before the six week check, and first vaccinations.  Neither had they seen serious and abnormally prolonged neonatal jaundice, accompanied by blood tests showing significant, abnormal liver enzyme profiles.

After Hepatitis B vaccine at birth was introduced, the practice had more health difficulties with babies, and was prescribing antibiotics in an age group not previously prescribed for.  After the Hepatitis B vaccine was removed from the birth schedule, their practice returned to the "pre-hepatitis B" non treatment normal mode, and neonatal jaundice returned to normal limits.

The doctor then went on to say that after the Hepatitis B vaccine was added to the DPT and Polio at six weeks, the practice then experienced a significant rise in intercurrent infections with some babies going on to be caught in a cycle of recurring ear infections, and sometimes bronchitis, which progressed to asthma.  The submission commented on the rise of the numbers fo babies constantly coming to the practice with some infection or other, and the doctor offered the opinion that somehow, the Hepatitis B vaccine appeared to cause some form of immune suppression, and therefore the practice had concerns about it's long term safety. Continue Reading


Everyone knows who dunnit...

Hilary Butler - Sunday, June 26, 2011

Did you know that the Kahui twins were actually triplets?  Funny how so few media get that point.  It's a very important one, but perhaps the 'why' of that, is for another blog. You know, the easiest thing for Macsyna to do would have been to stay silent, and walk away.  It's interesting to me how so much key information is being "left out" of the media reporting. 

If the police had evidence implicating Macsyna, she would have been on trial, not Chris. If Macsyna was found guilty, she would be in prison by now, not on the outside.

Why do people consider it their "right” to start a hate-mail/facebook campaign against Macsyna King and Ian Wishart?  Democracy in action, means people can talk to who they like, and write a book if they want.  Like David Bain.  There's plenty of Bain-haters out there, too.  Democracy in action means that people who have already made their mind up and decided David and Macsyna are guilty, because they "know"... don't have to buy the books

Trial by public assumption is more than the first step towards mob rule.  It's gang warfare of another kind.  Just without the colours and the patches.  But it's own "initiation" relies on emotional and social bullying, which if seen in children in school, would result in the psychologists being brought in. 

Not long ago, I was contacted by a father, who had been (wrongly) accused of SBS of one of their twins.    Continue Reading


Cognitive dissonance or "being deceived".

Hilary Butler - Tuesday, June 21, 2011

Are you a sucker for being hoodwinked? The problem with deception is that the deceived have no idea they are deceived....

Are you "disposed to be critical"?

Or are you simply a conformed



This is an important question, because lot of people think they can spot illogic, and lies a mile off.

This weekend, the Sunday Star Times published an article dealing with the blog about Amina Arraf - that wasn't. A comment in the article said, "People want to believe the best in those they choose to follow online,' writes Davey Winder, a tech writer and author of Being Virtual. "To do otherwise would be a reflection of their own poor judgement. Everyone likes to think they're a good judge of character." (emphasis mine) Continue Reading


Insight Documentary 19 June 2011

Hilary Butler - Sunday, June 19, 2011

Did everyone listening to the Insight immunisation documentary (podcast URL) on Sunday 19th June, put on their "thinking" cap?  How many listeners do you think, just "believed" all the comments made by the paediatricians or doctors?  After all, they went to medical school, so they must know everything?

I've decided to upload the podcast, in case it mysteriously disappears:  MP3 streaming file.

Where I have something to say, I will mentioned the "time" on the podcast in this format: 1.52 (Tim Blackmore) To me, this documentary was astonishing.  Firstly, because Phillipa Tolley's background research was palpably absent.  But then, to know that she plainly didn't know much..., a person would have to "know" a long term history of vaccination, and immunable diseases in New Zealand.  A real investigative journalist would have asked much more searching questions.

There were comments by an Infectious Diseases Specialist, Tim Blackmore, that measles is a terrible disease (1.52) which caused chronic lung disease, blindness and deafness.  In all the NZ literature for decades, such emotive language has not been used before.  Perhaps if Tim Blackmore had seen measles in the days when parents actually knew how to look after their children, he'd have a different picture of it.  His description, "measles is breathtakingly contagious" is ... breathtaking. He said, "You only have to walk past the room of somebody with measles in it, so it can spread literally like wildfire.... the only thing that protects us from infections like measles is people vaccinated under the age of 40 or so.Continue Reading


Influenza vaccines, KOPS, and the truth.

Hilary Butler - Wednesday, June 01, 2011

It's that time of year again, when the annual magical crystal ball from Lance Jennings predicts that Swine Flu will swarm back to mop up, hospitalise and possibly kill some of those not-previously-whacked-by-the-pigs-that-flew last time.  He's obviously missed the fact that others have moved on, and are demanding that everyone be vaccinated for the next pandemic, H2N2, NOW!... The first question you need to ask about Dr Jenning's crystal ball is, "What are we not being told?". 

The first thing is that the Swine flu vaccine produces non-functional antibodies in most people.  Just a mere inconvenient detail, that...

Did you know that Poland doesn't use seasonal or pandemic flu vaccines, and they had a far lower rate of Swine Flu than countries which do use them, as well as fewer serious cases?  Why might that be?  A December 2010 letter by Monsalvo, to Nature Medicine, detailed that serious cases of Swine Flu were those who had had "prior" exposure to influenza viruses, BUT had not made protective antibodies against them.  Continue Reading
