Fallacious cost-benefit analysis from PGI Chandigarh used to promote HPV vaccine

From ‘nsnbc.me’,  ‘nsnbc International’

A fallacious and misleading health –economic evaluation published by the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, (PGI) Chandigarh, India has been challenged in the journal Cancer, notes Jacob Puliyel MD, a member of the National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization Government of India. Puliyel stressed that this is perhaps the first vaccine to be introduced to the general public with no proof that it works.

A couple of extracts:

Dr. Jacob Puliyel stresses that the vaccine has been introduced in Punjab, India, after the PGI evaluation, even though it is not approved by the National Technical Advisory Group on Immunization.

The vaccine in question has previously drawn international attention when it transpired that it was associated with deaths of tribal girls in Andhra Pradesh, in a clinical trial performed without their consent by PATH of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Dr. Puliyel draws attention to the fact that the journal Cancer has now fast-tracked and published an article that points out that the author’s evaluation was grossly erroneous, as it wrongly assumed that mortality in cervical cancer was 98 to 99%. This falsely exaggerated the benefit of vaccination.

More damagingly, notes Puliyel, the letter points out that the authors not only present a faulty model – “they also distort the science published by others”.

“However, notes Puliyel, there are as yet no studies showing that the vaccine prevents cancer as this take decades to develop and the vaccine is only about 10 years old. He also stressed that “this is perhaps the first vaccine to be introduced to the general public with no proof that it works”. He also underpinned that use of the vaccine in adolescents has been associated with serious adverse events that it has been withdrawn from the Japan immunization programme.”

Read the article here.

One aspect I thought meaningful is the discussion on cost-effectiveness, forgetting for the moment that there is no definitive effectiveness anyway, whereby the decision to use the vaccine is a financial, perhaps political even. The childrens’ well-being becomes a lower priority, in their scheme.

 A reasonable conclusion might be that the childrens’ health, technically and logically, are better off without the vaccine.

The failure of the polio vaccine program in India should be a warning.

Research Data regarding Vaccinations. Courtesy ‘GreenMedInfo’

Mainstream theme on vaccinations is clearly repeated  – “Vaccines are Safe and Effective”.

Of course they are not. Perhaps “Vaccines are generally safe and usually effective” is more correct. But they do not even accept that. They prefer the public to not have any doubts.

‘GreenMedInfo.com’ :

“GreenMedInfo.com began in 2008 with the vision of founder, Sayer Ji, to provide a resource where consumers and health care professionals could access evidence-based, clinical data without the complexity of searching and navigating multiple health institutions.

Today GreenMedInfo.com is the world’s most widely referenced, evidence-based natural medical resource, averaging one million visits per month, and with over 250,000 subscribers to its popular daily newsletter.”

This link,

lists research papers offering real data about safety and effectiveness of vaccines, readers can make their own assessments.


Always a matter of weighing up pros and cons, BUT, there is clear evidence that across-the-board, unconditional mandatory vaccinating cannot be justified without infringing professional medical standards, civil liberties, personal health expectations and commonsense.

To deliberately inflict a known health risk on the basis of potentially avoiding a possible, but unlikely disease, is not a logical process.

How to Discuss Global Warming with a “Climate Alarmist.” Scientific Talking Points to Win the Debate.

A long and comprehensive article, some of it quite technical, which is what this issue is all about. Decisions made on propaganda in the mainstream news is hardly adequate. Beliefs based on politicians policies similarly of no scientific value.
An opportunity to learn the truth!

CO2 is Life

Smoking Gun #1: Al Gore’s Ice Core CO2 Temperature Chart


Ironically, some of the most damning evidence again the AGW or Anthropogenic Global Warming Theory comes from Al Gore himself.

This post has been updated and reformatted since being published.

Talking Points:

  1. Climate change is the norm. Never in the 800,000-year ice core record is climate not changing.
  2. Four Temperature Peaks in the last 400,000 years were all above today’s temperatures and occurred at lower CO2 levels.
  3. Every ice-age began when CO2 was at or near peak levels, in other words, high CO2 levels were not enough to prevent ice ages.
  4. The current record high level of 400 parts per million(ppm) CO2, a full 33% above any previous level on the chart, has failed to carry temperatures to a record high.
  5. For any cause and effect relationship, the cause MUST lead the effect. CO2 does not lead Temperature, it…

Amnesty International Confirms US and Israel Gave ISIS $1 Billion of Weapons in 2016

As is my wont, many irons in the fire, many pots to stir.

From ‘AWDNews.com

Amnesty International has confirmed that the US and Israel Army gave ISIS $1 billion worth of arms and equipment in Iraq, according to a report.

The data was obtained by the human rights group following a freedom of information request for a 2016 government audit.“This audit provides a worrying insight into the US Army’s flawed — and potentially dangerous system for controlling millions of dollars’ worth of arms transfers to a hugely volatile region,” Patrick Wilcken, Amnesty’s researcher on international arms control, said in a statement. “It makes for especially sobering reading given the long history of leakage of US arms to multiple armed groups committing atrocities in Iraq, including the armed group calling itself the Islamic State.” In 2015, the US and Israel gave $1.57 billion worth of equipment to Iraq to help them fight ISIS through the Iraq Train and Equip Fund.Now it has been revealed they also funded the enemy, providing them with weapons.The Army’s 1st Theater Sustainment Command “did not have accurate, up-to-date records on the quantity and location of [Iraq Train and Equip Fund] equipment on hand in Kuwait and Iraq,” the Pentagon’s inspector general wrote in the audit, The Hill reports.Tens of thousands of assault rifles, hundreds of mortar rounds and armored Humvees were among the equipment given to ISIS in Iraq, Amnesty said.According to Amnesty, the US army’s lack of control over its weapons was also exposed in a 2015 audit.The 2015 audit prompted Congress to commit to keeping a stricter control of its weapons.

Some Failed Climate Predictions

Continually overlooked by the press, the scientific alarmists and the public, the significance of how much past garbage from the CAGW promoters has been proven to be INCORRECT. Yet not even a shadow of doubt in the minds of the gullible.

Watts Up With That?

By Javier

Here, for the first time in public, is Javier’s entire collection of massive, “consensus” climate science prediction failures. This collection is carefully selected from only academics or high-ranking officials, as reported in the press or scientific journals. Rather than being exhaustive, this is a list of fully referenced arguments that shows that consensus climate science usually gets things wrong, and thus their predictions cannot be trusted.

To qualify for this list, the prediction must have failed. Alternatively, it is also considered a failure when so much of the allowed time has passed that a drastic and improbable change in the rate of change is required for it to be true. Also, we include a prediction when observations are going in the opposite way. Finally, it also qualifies when one thing and the opposite are both predicted.

A novelty is that I also add a part B that includes…

Inconvenient: oceans continue to cool

Watch this space for future revelations about global temperature reality.

Watts Up With That?

From the way media and climate scientists portray the global air temperature this past year, you’d think there was only one place to go – up. For example, Gavin is holding on to hope:

Next year will be interesting.

However, oceans rule the temperature of the planet, and as this most recent SST shows, there’s a lot of cool water and a clear signature of La Niña shaping up off the coast of South America:

September Sea Surface Temperatures (SSTs) are now available, and we see downward spikes in ocean temps everywhere, led by sharp decreases in the Tropics and SH, reversing the bump upward last month. The Tropical cooling in particular factors into…
