Vaccines have been controversial for years, and the sudden death of a prominent British doctor from apparent total organ failure shortly after getting a yellow fever vaccination won’t make the concerns go away.
The Times of London reported Martin Gore, 67, a pioneer in cancer treatment, died suddenly after “a routine inoculation for yellow fever.”
“His death highlights the increased risks associated with the vaccine for the growing number of older travelers visiting exotic destinations,” the report said.
The shot is recommended for people traveling to parts of Africa, the Caribbean and South and Central America.
He was a professor of cancer medicine at the Royal Mardsen NHS foundation trust and the Institute of Cancer Research in London.
The BBC reported the vaccine is not necessarily recommended for those over 60, those with weak immune systems or those who have allergies to the vaccine.
The Times said he suffered total organ failure soon after having a yellow fever vaccination, although the cause of death has not been confirmed.
The U.K.’s National Health Service warns side effects can occur, including an allergic reaction and problems affecting the brain or organs, according to the BBC.
Peter Openshaw, past president of the British Society for Immunology, explained: “It seems that people aged over 60 have a three to four-fold increased risk of experiencing these serious effects compared with younger people. However, this estimate is based on very few reported adverse events.”
WND reported last month the tragic story of triplets who each became autistic within hours of getting a vaccination at the age of nine months.
Tennessee Rep. Mark Green, a physician, said at a town-hall event in December he believes vaccines may cause autism.
Green questioned data from the federal Centers for Disease Control and other institutions that deny any link between vaccines and autism.
“Let me say this about autism,” Green said. “I have committed to people in my community, up in Montgomery County, to stand on the CDC’s desk and get the real data on vaccines. Because there is some concern that the rise in autism is the result of the preservatives that are in our vaccines.
“As a physician, I can make that argument and I can look at it academically and make the argument against the CDC, if they really want to engage me on it,” Green said.
Jane Orient, M.D., former president of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, says the real problems are a lack of adequate research and the medical industry’s apparent effort to conceal any link between vaccines and autism.
“We just really don’t know [the causes] and we’re not doing the research” that is needed, she told WND.
While the government, many physician groups and the vaccine makers all categorically reject any link between vaccines and autism, cases suggesting a link continue to arise.
“Claims that vaccines are linked to autism, or are unsafe when administered according to the recommended schedule, have been disproven by a robust body of medical literature,” two American Academy of Pediatrics doctors claimed last year. “Delaying vaccines only leaves a child at risk of disease.”
All of which is why the story of the McDowell family of Michigan is on video on Brighteon.com, getting tens of thousands of views in just the last few days.
Natural News reports: “The video shows below, healthy triplets all became autistic within hours of vaccination, once again demonstrating that vaccines cause autism. The parents, the McDowell family in Detroit, Michigan, have spoken out publicly against the horrific medical violence being committed against children every day across America through toxic vaccines.”
The parents, David and Brenda McDowell, explain in the video:
On June 25th, 2007, we brought them in for the [vaccine] shot … we went in at 10 am. All three. My daughter still has the mark on her leg from the shot … we did the boys as well. By noon, Claire shut completely off. It was as if she was blind, and deaf, and complete failure to thrive, from super super happy, smiley girl to … she had full blown eye contact, and she shut right down. All she did was stare at the ceiling.
At 2:00 we watched Richie shut off. All his mama, dadda, and the furniture walking and everything just shut of. All the giggles, all the smiles, again failure to thrive. They lost all their reflexes … they stopped blinking, yawning, coughing, sneezing, they lost their startle reflex … that was 2:00.
The worst was when we saw the final one shut down. We lost Robbie, he looked like he was hit by a bus. He had a stunned look on his face … he acted deaf, he lost his happiness. They were no longer engaged in anything or anyone. They lost their smiles. They never held hands again, never looked at each other again.”
