Vaccine Safety Science: Are childhood vaccines are tested against inert placebos. Doe the CDC investigate vaccine side effects? How Effective is The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is deficient by design. Are vaccine safety studies following the gold standard - true placebo, double blind?

In this episode, we discuss the body's innate healing ability. For instance, when we get a viral or bacterial infection, our body knows to increase the body temperature to kill off the invader. We also discuss vitalism vs mechanistic approaches to health. Why do masks potentially create more health problems and affect innate healing ability? We also discuss info on the C D C website on the data regarding who is dying from the vid. At the end we look at a study by the Cleveland Clinic on how getting the "juice" may affect your health outcome in regard to a vid infection. This episode originally aired on CHD TV under Dr. Hooker's show, Doctors and Scientists.
Join me and Dr. Brian Hooker as we go through the science of how your immune system is supposed to work without interventions vs with interventions.

Dr Don MacDonald has spent 17 years in the health and wellness industry as a chiropractor in Edmonton Alberta. It was from his position at the adjusting table that he noticed a common frustration developing into a major stressor in the lives of many patients. He identified it as ‘the underdog’ and they couldn’t seem to break out of it. It was a pattern he had seen in his own life - from the basketball days of his youth to life as a businessman and health practitioner. It stopped people from living their best lives, and often stripped them of true happiness. He made it his mission to find out how to break the underdog curse and move into authentic, lasting success. Dr Don is now a life coach and motivational speaker who dedicates his time to empowering people with the new, inspiring information regarding success, health, and his first love, neurology. www.theunderdogcurse.com

For 6 years, DEL BIGTREE was an Emmy Award-winning producer on the daytime talk show The Doctors. With a background both as a filmmaker and an investigative medical journalist, he is best known for combining visually impactful imagery, raw emotional interviews and unbiased investigative research into stories that push the envelope of daytime television. Some of his most thought-provoking episodes include a rare televised debate between Monsanto’s head of toxicology Dr. Donna Farmer and GMO activist Jeffrey Smith and an exposé on a “gold standard” medical test that mistakenly indicts loving parents for child abuse, causing their children to be remanded to Child Protective Services. When Bigtree began investigating the story of the CDC Whistleblower and the fraud perpetrated by the CDC, he soon realized that he had stumbled upon a story of corruption and deception beyond any he had ever seen. Further investigation into the wrongful destruction of Andrew Wakefield’s career orchestrated by Big Pharma and the UK Department of Health inspired him to focus all of his attention on what he believes to be the most crucial documentary of the year. Bigtree is proud to be working side by side with Andrew Wakefield, one of the most important minds of our time, to create a documentary that will not only alert Americans to the outright destruction of their civil liberties, but will lead the charge to demand the formation of a genuine independent research body conducting legitimate science to ensure that all vaccines are truly safe. In this interview, Del discusses why he is so passionate about this issue, his concern about "journalism" as it exists today, as well as other pertinent issues and he leaves us with an inspiring and positive message.

Andrew Wakefield MB.BS., is an academic gastroenterologist. He received his medical degree from St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School, London in 1981. He qualified as Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in 1985 and trained as a gastrointestinal surgeon with a particular interest in inflammatory bowel disease. He was awarded a Wellcome Trust Traveling Fellowship to study small-intestinal transplantation in Toronto. He was made a Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists in the U.K. in 2001. Wakefield has published over 140 original scientific papers, reviews, and book chapters. In 1995, as an academic physician working in a London teaching hospital, he was contacted by the parent of an autistic child with stomach issues. He soon learned from several other parents with autistic behaviors, that their children’s regressive behavior immediately followed an MMR vaccine. He started investigating a possible role between gastrointestinal issues, the MMR vaccine, and neurological injury in children. In pursuit of this possible link, Dr. Wakefield participated in a study of twelve children with both stomach and developmental issues. The ensuing report, written with twelve other authors would catapult Wakefield into becoming one of the most controversial figures in the history of Medicine. Wakefield has defended the paper, his medical and personal ethics and his findings in his national bestselling book, “Callous Disregard,” as well as in several video interviews. More recently, on appeal, the English High Court overturned the allegations made against the senior authors of the Lancet paper and Wakefield’s colleague Professor John Walker-Smith was reinstated and exonerated. Wakefield is the only one of the 13 co-authors barred from practicing medicine. He lost his country, his career, and his medical license. He considers these losses a small price to pay for the privilege of working with affected families. Since moving to Austin, Texas, he co-founded the Autism Media Channel with Polly Tommey with the goal of countering the pharmaceutical marketing and advertising juggernaut and the biased corporate-owned media with their own media. Together they produced the award-winning documentary, “Who Killed Alex Spourdalkis?,” which was Wakefield’s directorial debut. Wakefield continues to fight back on behalf of affected children, winning numerous awards and has released a second non-fiction book, Waging War on The Autistic Child. This is due to come out in paperback form Skyhorse Publishing with a brand new chapter on the CDC whistleblower story. Wakefield has interviewed with Ed Bradley on 60 Minutes, Matt Lauer at NBC, and on CNN, ABC’s Good Morning America, the BBC, and multiple other networks and radio stations worldwide. He has also published over 140 peer-reviewed scientific publications and spoken internationally on autism and vaccines. His story and his exoneration have been featured in Dr. David Lewis’ book Science for Sale and are the subjects of a feature documentary to be released by Miranda Bailey’s Ambush Entertainment www.vaxxedthemovie.com

Simpson University is a private Christian University of liberal arts and professional studies offering undergraduate, graduate and teaching credential programs. Hooker is well known for his concerns regarding vaccine safety and the conflicts of interest within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. His son, Steve, is vaccine-injured. Hooker is a board member at Focus Autism, an organization which believes in the “ongoing cover-up of the vaccine/autism link.” In 2013, biologist Dr. Brian Hooker received a call from a Senior Scientist at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) who led the agency’s 2004 study on the Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine and its link to autism. The scientist, Dr. William Thompson, confessed that the CDC had omitted crucial data in their final report that revealed a causal relationship between the MMR vaccine and autism. Over several months, Dr. Hooker records the phone calls made to him by Dr. Thompson who provides the confidential data destroyed by his colleagues at the CDC. This information is featured in the film, VaxXed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe.
