AS COLLEGE PROFESSORS, my colleagues and I have always enjoyed the enthusiastic students who are eager to learn more. Those who stand out in my memory are those who have requested more reading material. I have taught basic introductory biology, genetics, bioinformatics, courses in high-dimensional genomic and proteomic data analysis, and courses in study design and research ethics – and I always loved the gleam in the eye of students who just want to know.
Paging Dr. Offit!
Dr. Paul Offit earned millions of dollars from the sale of his patent for the Rotavirus vaccine after he voted to have it included in the pediatric vaccine schedule. He also appears to not be familiar with the body of peer-reviewed literature that condemns aluminum as a serious neurotoxin with well-characterized mechanisms of neurological damage.
In his book, “Deadly Choices: How the Anti-Vaccine Movement Threatens Us All” (Basic Books, New York), Offit is irresponsibly and recklessly dismissive of aluminum as a serious threat to the health of nearly all people by falsely reporting that:
“aluminum has been found to be harmful in only two groups of people: severely premature infants who receive large quantities of aluminum in intravenous fluids, and people on chronic dialysis (for kidney failure) who receive large quantities of aluminum in antacids”.

Dr. Paul Offit: The Bible is Irrelevant Today – “History has proven that the state will neglect and abuse the individual in the name of ‘the greater good’. My research in the vast literature on vaccine safety has led me to conclude that some people – a larger percentage than we are aware – are susceptible to injury from vaccines, and have mutations that make preservatives and adjuvants particularly unsafe for them. We should be spending time and money finding biomarkers of susceptibility, not arguing and shoving medical practices down people’s throats.”
Dear American Press: Enough with the Rhetoric. Tell the Full Autism/Vaccine Safety Research Story – “Do we really want to be a country that forces specific medical care upon patients without consent? Consent by coercion is not recognized as consent under any setting. The Universal Code of Human Rights – and the Nuremberg Code – both say that forced medical treatment is unethical. Ask yourself why would anyone want to force this medical, when they also know about the scientific misconduct – it’s entered into the Congressional Record thanks to Rep. Bill Posey (FL-R). I’m a demoncrat (that’s a joke, son), and I love Posey for bringing this issue forward. Don’t let them do this with vaccines – what else will they force on us in the name of easily justified profits from mass vaccinations? We should be overhauling our vaccine safety research programs instead.”
