Duty To Warn

“Gulf War Syndrome refers to the complex of symptoms that affects veterans of the 1990-1991 Gulf War at significantly excess rates. It is characterized by multiple diverse symptoms not explained by established medical diagnoses or standard laboratory tests, symptoms that typically include a combination of memory and concentration problems, persistent headache, unexplained fatigue, and widespread pain, and can also include chronic digestive difficulties, respiratory symptoms, and skin rashes.”

“…the biological effects of different combinations of pyridostigmine bromide (PB), multiple pesticides, low-level nerve agents, oil and dense smoke from burning wells, depleted uranium (DU) weaponry dust, fuel vapors, exhaust from tent heaters, Chemical Agent Resistant Coating (CARC) paint, airborne particulates, infectious agents, and receipt of multiple vaccines, experienced concurrently or over a brief time period, are unknown. Many have suggested that unknown and difficult-to-characterize effects may have been precipitated by an ‘exposure cocktail’ or ‘toxic soup’ effect during Gulf War deployment.”

“Non-deployed veterans who reported getting vaccines…had significantly higher rates of symptoms in several domains (chronic somatic pain, neurological, and gastrointestinal problems) and a nearly four-fold higher rate of Gulf War illness than non-deployed veterans who did not receive vaccines. Veterans who served in theater, by comparison, had Gulf War illness symptoms at 11 times the rate of non-deployed veterans who did not receive vaccines.” – The above three quotes have been excerpted from the 465 page VA scientific document concerning the soldier victims of Gulf War I. There was very little mention of the now-well-known toxic effects of aluminum adjuvants in the document, which can be accessed at: (http://www.va.gov/gulfwaradvisorycommittee/docs/GWIandHealthofGWVeterans_RAC-GWVIReport_2008.pdf)

Recently I attended a seminar at an area college that dealt with how such a college campus might be more welcoming to Gulf War veterans who are enrolling at relatively high rates, thanks to the GI Bill. The faculty did a good job of discussing the many obstacles that every returning veteran faces when he or she returns to domestic life, including academic life. I did notice that there were some important medical issues that were not discussed, but medical issues were beyond the areas of expertise of the seminar presenters and probably not expected to be part of the discussion.

I actually am quite familiar with the situations that colleges are facing when it comes to traumatized or toxified veterans in academia. Not only had I studied posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) for several decades as a part of my medical practice and teaching experiences, but I also practiced as a physician at a mental hospital for 2 ½ years in the late 1990s. Following that, I spent nearly a decade practicing holistic mental healthcare.

During that practice experience, I dealt with literally hundreds of patients with both full-blown and partial expressions of PTSD (domestic as well as military victims of severe psychological trauma). Significantly, most of those patients had never been previously diagnosed with PTSD, a very easily diagnosable disorder.

Simultaneous with the time that I had my independent holistic mental healthcare practice, I also taught – for 6 semesters – an upper level psychology class at the University of Minnesota-Duluth. The course was titled “The Science and Psychology of the Body-Mind Connection”.

In that class, I spent a lot of time teaching my students (who were mostly juniors, seniors or graduate students (destined for psychology or sociology careers) about the realities of PTSD (especially the combat-induced variety). We also discussed the root causes of violence, the basic neuroscience of the brain, how neurotoxic psychiatric drugs work at the synapse level and the science and healing qualities of optimum brain nutrition.

During the course, I had my students watch and then write papers on “Beyond Vietnam” (a powerful Veterans for Peace video about the psychological consequences of combat war), “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” and Pink Floyd’s “The Wall”, all powerful films that nicely illustrated the realities of PTSD (which is all too-often mis-diagnosed as a mental illness “of unknown cause” and therefore mis-treated). The vast majority of my students rated the class mostly 5s out of 5 in their end-of-semester evaluations of the course.

Over those six semesters, two Gulf War I veterans (that I knew of) enrolled in my class. Both of them missed lectures and also missed handing in some papers. They usually failed to participate in class discussions and ultimately both abruptly withdrew before the end of the semester without warning or asking my counsel. I never found out the real reasons why they withdrew. I think that they both dropped out of college entirely.

As careful readers of my Duty to Warn column understand, I have over the last year become well-versed with the recent basic science-generated neuro-toxicology studies that indict any number of psychiatric drugs and also various common vaccine ingredients for contributing to autoimmune disorders, neurological disorders and mental dysfunction (and even damage to brain tissue).

An Open Letter to PBS Talk Show Hosts:

new logoDr Gary Kohls, MD.

__________________________________________________________

Recently your station hosted a Dr Paul Offit, a perennial guest ”expert” on many radio stations, who has been blindly regarded as an unbiased interview guest when it comes to controversial vaccine issues, prescription drug issues, alternative medicine and the promotion of BigPharma’s agenda of legislatively (in most states) forcing all children to be fully (over-) vaccinated, whether they are immune-deficient or not or whether or not the vaccine has been tested for safety or efficacy long-term (or even short term).

Note that the vaccine industry has never thoroughly tested for safety the highly neurotoxic and nephrotoxic qualities of aluminum (especially in tiny infants), which is and has been in most vaccines for generations!

Offit is an academic physician (who became a co-opted millionaire because of his collaboration with the vaccine industry) and therefore has never had to listen to the uncounted thousands of anguished parents of the millions of chronically-ill, totally disabled or deceased children who know for certain that their previously normal children were injured, disabled or killed by the over-vaccination program so heavily promoted by the co-opted CDC, AAP, and Offit.

I have provided for you and your PBS station some research (also see attached) backing up my assertions in case there are interested investigative journalists on your staff that might want to educate your listeners about this important issue. Gary G. Kohls, MD, Duluth, MN 218-728-9756

Dr. Paul Offit’s Aluminum Deceptions and Academic Misconduct

Dr Paul Offit, who is the multimillionaire darling of BigPharma’s vaccine industry (and who has profited hugely from his alliances with said vaccine industry) has been allowed to take the pulpit over and over again on NPR, MPR and WPR in recent months (also PBS). He is one of the well-paid professional voices of the CDC (major promoters of universal, even forced, vaccinations), the American Academy of Pediatrics and BigPharma’s vaccine industry that has hundreds of new vaccines in the pipeline, which will never be medico-legally liable if they kill or injure the vacinee. (The profits of the industry have been institutionalized and the risks socialized.)

The following quotes are quite pertinent:

“It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!” – Upton Sinclair, anti-imperialist American author. Sinclair’s 1903 novel “Jungle” (about the repulsive slaughterhouse practices in the meat-packing industry in Chicago) led to President Theodore Roosevelt’s pushing through the Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906.
No vaccine manufacturer shall be liable…for damages arising from a vaccine-related injury or death.” – President Ronald Reagan, as he signed The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) of 1986, absolving drug companies from all medico-legal liability when children die or are disabled from vaccine injuries, thus reversing – 80 years later – many of the intentions of the original FDA legislation.

Offit repeatedly says that there are 12 studies that have proven that there is no link between vaccines and autism (or other illnesses that are well known to be vaccine-induced. He also challenges the parents of vaccine-injured or killed children and other vaccine skeptics to produce scientific evidence that supports their claims that establish that vaccines are not safe or even effective. Offit is probably totally unaware of the list of 99 peer-reviewed papers (read the abstracts and comments of the research 99 papers that refute his unscientific claims at: http://www.scribd.com/doc/220807175/86-Research-Papers-Supporting-the-Vaccine-Autism-Link#scribd. These papers prove the connections.

For more, read the attachments.

Dr Offit could have some of his publications renounced and be fired from his job (not to mention having his medical degree withdrawn) if his situation was treated the same as Dr Andrew Wakefield was treated for his (5 times replicated) discovery that there was a connection between Glaxo’s MMR vaccine inoculations, chronic diarrhea from measles virus-strain-infested bowel lymphatic tissue rand severe regressive autism in a peer-reviewed publication in the Lancet that had a number of co-authors, one of which also had his license revoked and then, in a court of law later on, was exonerated of the same charges that Wakefield had been charged with and had his license to practice given back by the medical review board.

Flawed Science and Danger of the HPV Vaccines

2 Comments

new-logo25 Dr Gary Kohls, M.D.

________________________________________________

Nephrologist, researcher and scholar Dr Suzanne Humphries (one of the few outspoken physician-whistle-blowers that, of course, has never been co-opted by the vaccine industry) knows more about the basic science – and the dangers – of vaccinations than anybody else in medicine, talks about the issue of vaccines and autism at:

This information, addressed to the Dept of Justice, is mainly for those common sense correspondents of mine who know that there is truth behind the concerns of parents of autistic spectrum disorder-afflicted kids and other fully vaccinated children who are also now afflicted with a variety of autoimmune and other chronic illnesses (now representing 1/3 of the fully vaccinated childhood population in America). These chronic illnesses may not be curable unless the root cause is accurately identified:. Please read on:

Because this is so important, I ask that you drop everything and watch nephrologist/scholar Dr Suzanne Humphries talk about the flawed science and dangers of the HPV campaign that is being promoted by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the CDC, AAFP, AMA, Big Medicine, Big Pharma and the corporate media to get parents to have their pre-adolescent daughters (and sons) submit to the HPV vaccine’s three $100+ doses (plus office call charges) that have been proven to only give temporary immunologic “protection” against 2 or 4 of the 15 potentially carcinogenic human papilloma viruses.

The two brands of HPV vaccines that Big Pharma companies have managed to get the FDA to approve only have very weak theoretical reasons behind their promotion, and it is highly likely that both innoculants will, in the 20 – 30 years it will take to either prove or disprove the claims, be found to have been worthless and even dangerous when the end results will be available (so far there has been no proof that they can prevent cancer of the cervix; in fact, just the opposite already seems to be true).

So far the only claim for alleged vaccine “effectiveness” is that some vaccinees manage to develop transient immune responses to the shots in most of the recipients, but no decreases in cervical cancer or even pre-cancerous lesions have been found (in fact there have been cases of HPV-infections and cervical pre-cancerous lesions found in the young vaccinated girls!!

Thus there have been no proof of HPV vaccine safety. And, since the HPV innoculum contains large amounts of the toxic adjuvant – and ultimately immune-suppressant – aluminum, as well as a variety of inevitable contaminants (that have been found in many vaccines), one could predict harmfulness, both short-term and long-term!!

(At this point it might be good to recall Voltaires’ admonition: “Those who can get you to believe absurdities, can get you to commit atrocities.”)
