In the video below, Alvin Moss, MD, a Professor of Medicine at West Virginia University School of Medicine, who has taught Medical Ethics for over 25 years, speaks out about vaccine safety, informed consent, and medical ethics. He also discusses why physicians are afraid to speak out about vaccines. Dr. Moss practices Internal Medicine; is a Nephrologist and does Palliative Care. He speaks out, not in an official role as a professor in the School of Medicine, but as someone, who has done independent research, is concerned about vaccine injury, and who, along with his wife, is personally aware of 12 cases of vaccine injury including a severely autistic vaccine injured neighbor.
In the opening of this video, Dr. Moss refers to CDC scientists who have come forward to voice their concerns about the integrity of research being conducted at the CDC, and conflicts of interest that are coming before the safety of the public. Read the CDC Spider statement here.
"If you read the records of the vaccine court, you can see that there are people that are being injured by vaccines . . . The concern is, are people properly informed? As, as somebody who teaches medical ethics, I'm very concerned that people receive informed consent; that they really know the benefits and the risks . . . These are major risks for what usually are mild illnesses. Measles is a mild illness. Chickenpox is a mild illness . . . So unfortunately, we are having major injuries; like, like autism is a lifelong injury for something that itself would have been a mild illness. So I think it is a matter of informed consent that people be told and then be able to decide whether they want it or not. Unfortunately for children attending public school, it's mandatory and so they don't get a choice which isn't fair."
" . . . There are still things in the vaccines that can be harmful. They have things like mercury in some, aluminum in others, polysorbate 80 . . . things that can cause infertility . . . there are viruses in some . . . There are all sorts of things where we don't really know the long-term safety and yet they're being done to people without sufficient data sufficient safety studies to assure us that they will be safe."
". . . I'm coming at it from the standpoint of being somebody who teaches medical ethics and is concerned about it. I don't think people should be forced to undergo something where we don't know for sure it's safe, and they haven't been given adequate consent."
"Unfortunately physicians are afraid because organized medicine has been mislead and I think it's really because there's been misleading data from the CDC . . . misled into thinking that vaccinations are uniformly a good thing . . . they are not uniformly a good thing; they can cause serious harm and people should be free to choose whether they want to be vaccinated or not. . . "
"I think you need some humility on the part of physicians. First of all, physicians have not been trained that vaccine injuries could be this great . . . I wish more of my physician colleagues were humble enough to say well let me look into this as opposed to saying well it couldn't be . . . "
August 29, 2016 letter to Chief of Staff, Carmen S. Villar, MSW, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) from CDC Spider (CDC Scientists Preserving Integrity, Diligence and Ethics in Research)
Dear Ms. Villar:
We are a group of scientists at CDC that are very concerned about the current state of ethics at our agency. It appears that our mission is being influenced and shaped by outside parties and rogue interests. It seems that our mission and Congressional intent for our agency is being circumvented by some of our leaders. What concerns us most, is that it is becoming the norm and not the rare exception. Some senior management officials at CDC are clearly aware and even condone these behaviors. Others see it and turn the other way. Some staff are intimidated and pressed to do things they know are not right. We have representatives from across the agency that witness this unacceptable behavior. It occurs at all levels and in all of our respective units. These questionable and unethical practices threaten to undermine our credibility and reputation as a trusted leader in public health. We would like to see high ethical standards and thoughtful, responsible management restored at CDC. We are asking that you do your part to help clean up this house! Continue reading letter.
