A little over two years ago, I shared a post entitled, "I called myself a vaccine Nazi..." which featured a video interview with James Neuenschwander, MD speaking out about vaccines. Click here to read that post and listen to that interview.
This past week, "Dr. Nue", who has been in practice for over 30 years and is double Board Certified in Emergency and Integrative Medicine, gave a powerful, no nonsense, reprimand to the members of ACIP (Advisory Committee for Immunization Practices) at their October meeting at CDC Headquarters in Atlanta, GA. He then talked with The HighWire's Del Bigtree.
Listen to Dr. Neuenschwander's ACIP comment and HighWire interview below.
James Neuenschwander MD addresses the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices with his severely critical public comment detailing how ACIP’s policies are hurting our children and families.
Thank you Dr. Neuenschwander. We need more physicians like you, who have the humility and integrity to admit that the very little they were taught about vaccines in medical school was wrong; and the courage to speak out to protect children and families from further harm.
“…You are truly brainwashed when you go through medical school. You’re chronically sleep deprived. You’re fed the same lines over and over again. You’re trained through repetition. You’re not trained to question anything. I always say there’s a huge difference between a medical education and a law education. They teach you law by asking you questions. They say, what do you think about, Smith vs. the state of Columbia or something; and whatever your answer is they’re then going to ask you about an alternative position. It doesn’t happen that way in medicine. You go to the mountaintop, the Guru bestows the knowledge upon you and your job is to merely regurgitate that knowledge while you’re practicing medicine. You never question what you’re doing until you realize what you’re doing doesn’t work and maybe there’s better answers out there. So these folks, I don’t think any of them are evil. I think they are all great people and they have devoted their lives to preventing infectious disease. That’s why they’re there. Alright, but because they’re so focused in on whether two DTaPs is better than a DTaP and two DTaPs is better than a DT and three DTaPs or whatever the study is, they completely forget about health. I mean this is all about how do we improve the health of our children, of our adults, that’s really what we should be about and they’re not even looking at that…We are so trained to look at the minutiae that we ignore the big picture. The vaccine works, we don’t have measles. We don’t have measles, who cares about autism? Who cares about auto-immunity?
We don’t have measles.”
“We need people that are thinking independently and that’s being snuffed out; and a lot of us believe that most of the kids that are descending into autism, these would have been the future thought leaders.”
