Quotes re Offit
Paul Offit defending vaccines is like Charles Manson arguing the merits of religious cults, and reporters and gossip columnists across the country are Googling away and learning about the extreme conflicts, Congressional reprimands, vaccine patents, paid spokesperson gigs, and underhanded book deals that characterize Offit's dealings. [July 2008] The Parasites Thank You, Amanda Peet

''I had no clue about the pivotal role they both had played in deceiving the public about thimerosal safety. Both of them spoke to me willingly. Offit expressed admiration for my father, which is an effective way to butter me up. I asked them both the obvious question: "Why do we advise pregnant women to steer clear of fish because of neurotoxic mercury and yet inject much larger doses of mercury into pregnant women and babies?" They both repeated to me the thread worn industry canard that the "Ethyl mercury in vaccines is not as dangerous as the methyl mercury in fish" which everyone admits is highly neurotoxic. Offit explained to me that ethyl mercury wasn't toxic because it leaves the human body so quickly.
    By then, I'd read Burbacher's monkey studies which confirmed Offit's assertion that the ethyl mercury from vaccines rapidly left the blood. But, Burbacher had shown the ethyl mercury was not being excreted from the body as Offit implied during our telephone conversation. Instead, it was going directly into the brain, where it rapidly metabolized into highly toxic inorganic mercury, and then lodged there, creating inflammation and brain damage. Burbacher had shown that inorganic mercury remains in the brain for years. Instead of being evidence of its safety, as Offit represented, ethyl mercury's penchant for disappearing quickly from the blood was testimony to its extreme peril; it was disappearing due to the ease with which it crossed the blood-brain barrier! Ethyl mercury used in vaccines was both far more persistent and far more toxic than the methyl mercury found in fish. The Guzzi study, in 2012, showed the ethyl mercury was 50 times as toxic to cells. When I mentioned the Burbacher study to Stratton and Offit, they both went silent. It was obvious that they were aware of the study. THEY BOTH KNEW that science had refuted what they were telling me. They were accustomed to talking to journalists who seem to have an allergy to reading science and were content to parrot their reassurances.''  [2016 Dec] Mercury, Vaccines and the CDC's Worst Nightmare By Rita Shreffler

 ''In a single day, I had spoken to the two top advocates for the use of thimerosal in vaccines and I caught them both lying. A few days later, I heard Offit repeat his "good mercury/bad mercury" fib during an interview on NPR. I thought to myself, "This man is a thorough charlatan, a snake oil salesman and he has everyone flimflammed." That made me angry. After that, I learned that he was also venal.  Well, my original assumption was that he was lying in service to the vaccine program. I later learned that vaccines were a lavishly profitable enterprise for Dr. Offit.
    He is on permanent retainer to Merck to "right vaccine wrongs". And, both Merck and the CDC have rewarded his service with extraordinarily lucrative opportunities. In 1999, the CDC allowed him to sit on the committee that voted the rotavirus vaccine onto the schedule, even though he was working on his own rotavirus patent. Electing not to recuse himself, he cast his vote to add rotavirus to the schedule. That version of the rotavirus vaccine caused so many agonizing childhood deaths from intussusception that the CDC had to withdraw it a year later, making room for Offit's version, a turn of events that made him a vaccine tycoon. His rotavirus vaccine patent sold for $182 million; his cut was at least $29 million. When I learned about this caper and his other money schemes, I just thought, "Well, he's a hoodlum."
    It's disturbing because the media treats him like a deity. And, like all bullies, he's a coward. He dismisses women who question him as superstitious hysterics. He lobs vicious bombs at the mothers of vaccine-injured children from the editorial pages and national TV shows which give him a platform for his poison. But, he refuses to debate me or anyone else who knows what they are talking about.
   I don't feel competent to psychoanalyze Offit. It's hard to look into another person's mind. And Offit's brain has got to be a really dark and scary zip code where I don't really want to spend time. In his defense, we all have some capacity for self-deception and it's possible that Offit is as gifted at deceiving himself as he is at deceiving the public. Upton Sinclair observed that, "It's difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it." But I do think it's more likely that he knows that what he's saying is dishonest. For years, he claimed Bill Thompson's 2004 study was "the definitive proof" of thimerosal safety. He's been silent about that since Thompson disavowed his own study. That suggests a purposeful mendacity. Like a lot of other people, Offit seems to have made the self-serving calculation that all of the dead and damaged children are just collateral damage—unfortunate sacrifices in a program that serves the greater good.
.....Offit's moral Donnybrook is his absolutist defense of the industry position that all vaccines are always safe for all people and that the safety of thimerosal is unassailable. That approach has unnecessarily damaged vulnerable subgroups that could easily have been protected and sacrificed millions of kids, not for the greater good but for the bottom line. As the vaccine industry's lead pitchman for thimerosal, Offit's been extraordinarily successful at crafting a persuasive alternative to fact-based reality and selling it like a carnival barker. He has made himself the high priest of the weird dogma that it's somehow safe to inject mercury into babies.''  [2016 Dec] Mercury, Vaccines and the CDC's Worst Nightmare By Rita Shreffler

[2015 Sept] Vaccine profiteer Paul Offit admits to fabricating lies about vaccine safety advocates   Offit reportedly made up a fictitious conversation he had with Seidel, painting her as a threatening and unreasonable person in an attempt to tarnish her reputation. This conversation never actually happened, of course, and Offit later settled a libel accusation, agreeing to issue an apology, correct the "error" in his book, and make a donation to an autism charity.

Offit states that "Subsequent studies of hundreds of thousands of children showed that the risk of permanent brain damage was the same in children who had not received the vaccine as in those who had."  FACT: Of all the vaccines which have been routinely used by children in the past century, the brain damaging effects of the pertussis (whooping cough) portion of DPT vaccine is among the most well documented in the scientific literature. [2007 NVIC] Myths and Facts

''A June 3, Boston Globe OpEd authored by Paul Offit, M.D. is littered with factual errors that perpetuate pharmaceutical industry-created myths, which have been used for two decades to persuade Congress to pass laws shielding vaccine makers from liability for vaccine injuries and deaths, while giving drug companies huge financial incentives to develop vaccines and lobby for vaccine mandates. Offit blames parents of DPT vaccine injured children seeking financial support for their children for driving drug companies out of the vaccine business. He does this even though he knows perfectly well there are more drug companies producing childhood vaccines today than in 1982.
    Offit also blames parents of vaccine injured children for vaccine shortages even though he knows the main causes for vaccine shortages rest with the vaccine manufacturers themselves: production problems affecting distribution, incomplete compliance with FDA standards, and inaccurate predictions for public demand for a vaccine.
    Offit further attempts to rewrite medical history by alleging that DPT vaccine does not cause brain damage. He does this even though he knows (1) the largest case controlled study ever conducted to investigate causes of brain damage in children, the 1981 British National Childhood Encephalopathy Study, concluded that the pertussis (whooping cough) portion of DPT vaccine causes acute brain inflammation and permanent brain damage; and (2) the Institute of Medicine agreed with that conclusion in 1994.''  [2007 NVIC] Myths and Facts

OK, let me be clear: I think Paul Offit is a blowhard liar, a vaccine profiteer and apologist, and every time he opens his mouth he disrespects my son. When the final chapter is finally written on this man-made autism epidemic, I will do everything within my power to ensure that Offit is remembered by history as one of the most sinister, dishonest, well-funded talking heads pharma ever produced, and that his efforts served to afflict so many children with autism who may otherwise have avoided it.  In one of the most absurd snowjobs ever put on the media, Offit, a doctor who has never seen a patient with autism, never treated autism, and never published a study about autism, is somehow considered to be an expert on autism. Given his status as a multi-millionaire vaccine patent holder who has had much of his career supported by Merck, this isn’t just absurd, it’s highway robbery, and yet the media persists, and rarely even mentions Offit’s Mount Everest-sized pile of conflicts. Best of Age of Autism: Paul Offit and the Original Sin

  It is not the liberty of Dr. Offit, or any manufacturer researcher or government public health official, or any MD, to decide for you what is an acceptable level of risk for your child. Indeed – vis-a-vis vaccines, the industry shows nothing but disdain, for the truth and for the health of our kids, and cannot be trusted. Our focus must be on warning others of the palpable threat of vaccination, as the ground force to ultimately break the cartel’s hold – politically, economically and socially – completely.  Research. Educate. We’re on our own.[2014] A Pox On Their Arrogance and Their Dark Motivations by Shawn Siegel

Offit cited 20 studies showing disproving a link to autism. Colbert never asked about the pharma ties that exist for every one of those studies.  Offit can't figure out why 29 percent of Americans still believe in a link. The answer to that is simple. We know every one of his lies.---Anne Dachel http://www.ageofautism.com/2014/04/dachel-media-review-colbert-report-used-by-offit-during-autism-awareness-month.html

I have offered on several occasions by recorded delivery and mail to debate Dr. Offit in public at any time in any place of his choosing and that he has never taken me up on. And I don't suppose that he is going to. Let's just characterize Dr. Offit's sense of proportion and due diligence in what he says. For example, in his book about false prophets, Autism and False Prophets, he claimed that I had made the recommendation to use single vaccines in the UK in February 1998 when the single vaccines were not available. They were. I would not have made the recommendation had they not been. If you Google that. If you put in 'withdrawal single vaccines UK' into Google, the first website that comes up gives you the precise date on which they were withdrawn in the fall of that year; six months beyond what I had said. That is all Dr. Offit had to do to check his facts. That was all he had to do.  He did not do it. Instead, he decided to go into his book, go into print and defame me by suggesting that I would make a recommendation which was in effect unethical. So that is a measure if you like of Dr. Offit's application to the task at hand. [2010 April] Andrew Wakefield Interview by Dr Mercola

Now we come to your specific question about the use of 10,000 which I think he's now revised to a hundred thousand vaccine antigens on one day. This is based upon a theoretical study that he did looking at the sort of genetic variability of the genes responsible for antibody production and saying, well, based upon the number that we have available; we should be able to produce this number of antibodies. That is an entirely theoretical mathematical piece of jiggery pokery. It has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with the real world and it's bizarre that he would go out there and say that. That really, really worries me from a safety standpoint.
    If you just take for example, MMR and you add in the varicella vaccine, the chickenpox vaccine, MMRV as ProQuad what happens is you double the rate of convulsions as an adverse reaction. So just adding one and not 999,000 but just one extra vaccine in, you double the rate of an adverse, a potentially serious adverse reaction. To the extent that that ProQuad vaccine had to be withdrawn. So the notion that you could give a child a hundred thousand vaccine antigens on one day is utter nonsense. And what is extraordinary, what is telling I suppose is that no other immunologist or vaccinologist or any other person with any credible standing has stood behind Dr. Offit and said yes, you can go for it. [2010 April] Andrew Wakefield Interview by Dr Mercola

It appears Paul Offit joined the ACIP to ensure he could influence the approval of the Rotavirus vaccine, from which he would later benefit greatly when his own version of rotavirus vaccine was approved. Not surprisingly, Paul Offit voted yes on every action he could relating to the approval of Wyeth's vaccine. But, when the vaccine was being pulled from the market, Offit abstained.

"There are two reasons why people perpetuate a lie, even if they are not the original creators of it. Some do it out of ignorance or carelessness. Others do it deliberately with full knowledge. Sometimes it is difficult to determine whether facts are falsified deliberately or out of ignorance. Whatever the case, it is important to set the record straight when distortion of facts perpetuate a lie, especially when the lives of human beings are at stake.....Paul Offit attempts to rewrite history when he argues that the DPT vaccine does not cause brain inflammation and permanent brain injury in some children....Offit is entitled to his own opinion but not to his own facts. We have only ourselves to blame when we believe everything he says." - At Risk: Truth About Vaccines, Lawsuits & Shortages by Barbara Loe Fisher

[Nov 2007] Dissecting A Thimerosal Study by Heidi Stevenson  So, the expert quoted has made a statement that has nothing to do with the study and he holds a patent on a dangerous vaccine being pushed on tiny babies for a disease that holds almost no risk if they're healthy. Is this the sort of person whose opinion on the issue—especially considering the fact that his statement has nothing to do with the study in question—is worthwhile?

It is unfortunate that most of the public are of the opinion that their physician has an in-depth knowledge of how the body works. For example, most parents assume that the pediatrician understands the immune system and therefore knows all about vaccine effects. Nothing could be further from the truth. In most medical schools, the basic sciences are taught during the first year. Medical students, in general, hate the basic sciences and see them as useless to the practice of medicine. Kevin worse, there are certain subjects that receive little or no coverage in medical education. Many people are aware that nutrition rarely receives any attention i n the curriculum. Yet, of the basic sciences, it is immunology that gets little more than a footnote.
    As you will discover in this book, even people making decisions concerning the vaccines your child will receive have admitted they know little or nothing concerning immunology. This is appalling. Anyone with even a basic understanding of immunology or having read the available research on the effects of excessive vaccination on the developing brain, would know that the present crowded vaccine schedule is extremely destructive to the child's brain. Likewise, there seems to be little concern as to the effects of multiple immunizations on the developing child's immune system. Pediatricians and public health authorities are of the opinion that they can give an unlimited number of vaccines to babies and small children without risk. Our neuroscience proves this is insane. Almost every year, these vaccine enthusiasts add another set of vaccines to the schedule, despite the growing list of neurological and other health disasters occurring in our children.

"Many, many people are under mind control and have been working for them for years - men and women who are dentists, attorneys, stockbrokers, doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, politicians, bankers, corporate heads, engineers, newspaper editors or owners, nurses, teachers, principals, etc. etc. etc. And all these programmed people are used to further "the cause," each placed in strategic positions for use by the Council.  The technology available is so advanced that most people couldn't even dream of it. It far surpasses anything yet seen on sci-fi movies or read about in books -- total automation, even of people."---Thanks for the Memories by Brice Taylor

Offit bollocks/lies quotes:

The whooping cough vaccine didn't cause permanent brain damage (see: DPT vaccine damage [1981] British National Childhood Encephalopathy Study  [1982] DPT : vaccine roulette (TV Documentary))....I think the vaccines that have been hardest hit have been the hepatitis B vaccine, I think in large part because it's given to children in the first day of life. The human papillomavirus vaccine (HPV) has been a big target because it prevents a sexually transmitted disease, and I think at some level people see that as dirty and don't like to give it to adolescents. I think hepatitis B vaccine suffered the same thing. I think there are some vaccines that suffer more than others, but I think at some level when one suffers they all suffer.  Offit, Paul A.   Paul Offit on the Dangers of the Anti-Vaccine Movement

"In fact, Dr. Offit's studies show that in theory, healthy infants could safely get up to 100,000 vaccines at once." [Ref]

"I think questioning vaccines is perfectly reasonable. But I think that when one looks at the data, and sees that vax are safe and effective and...still...says, 'Well, I think there's a conspiracy to sell vaccines' or 'I think my doctor's lying to me,' I think that's when you cross some sort of critical line," says Offit. "What I'm asking is that people trust their experts. And that's sort of a hard thing to politically accept."  (CBS) 60 MinutesOctober 20, 2004

It doesn’t make sense that one flu strain would cause Guillain-Barré syndrome where none of the others have.   How about this flu shot, this one, this one, this one, or this one. No other strain caused GBS? What a load of bollocks, even taking his flu strain causes GBS spin, where it is more likely to be just the poison effect.

"If they were willing to look at all the studies that were done with vaccines, they would find that they are, I think without question, the safest, best-tested thing we put into our bodies," says Offit. "I think they have a better safety record than vitamins.  (CBS) 60 MinutesOctober 20, 2004

[Draw dropping lie that one. No one has found any safety study over 2 weeks for MMR, and that was done by the maker, and $1 Billion in compensation to vaccine victims, when at the most only 1 in 4 get compensated, certainly well under 10% of vaccine reactions ever get reported. I'd love to see a list of vitamin victims under professional (doctor) supervision, like the vaccine victims.]

  • "I think without question the smallpox vaccine has severe adverse events that occur at a rate far greater than any of the other vaccines that we use today. Which means that the smallpox vaccine, is I think, without question, our least safe vaccine. But it is absolutely safe if one defines 'safe' as benefits outweigh risks in a situation where the disease is present. When the disease isn't present, then one only is frankly aware of the risks, because there are no benefits." (PBS, 2002) http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/health/july-dec02/offit_smallpox.html
