A French research institute working on various deadly viruses, including SARS, has apparently misplaced thousands of tubes and no one is quite sure where they went.

A routine inventory check at Paris’ Pasteur Institute revealed that 2,349 tubes containing fragments of the virus responsible for the deaths of 774 people in 2002 were missing, the centre named after French chemist Louis Pasteur said.

It is not clear how the tubes disappeared from one of the institute’s safest laboratories. Management were made aware of the loss in January, Le Monde newspaper reported.

For weeks, staff at the institute tried to find the missing vials, general director Christian Bréchot said.

“We’ve looked for those boxes [containing the tubes] everywhere,” Bréchot explained.

“We went thought the lists of all the people who have worked here in the past year and a half, including trainees. We have scrutinised their profile to check if there was any conflict.”

Bréchot said that foul play was “highly improbable” but had not been ruled out.

Though it’s not clear how, investigators have pretty much ruled out foul play. But keep in mind that we’re talking about a deadly virus that has been removed from what should be a highly secured area.  Moreover, no one seems to know when the virus was actually taken.

According to the Pasteur Institute, however, there is no immediate danger because the virus in the vials won’t spread the disease:

The institute was quick to reassure the public and said that the contents of the missing vials had no infectious potential. They contained only part of the virus and had no ability to spread.

“Independent experts referred by health authorities have qualified such potential as ‘non-existing’ according to the available evidence and literature on the survival of the Sars virus,” the institute said.

When dealing with deadly viruses, it is always a good idea to secure your facility, which makes this particular disappearance alarming.

Although the fragments are not dangerous, they do raise concerns by revealing the lab’s vulnerability, said Dr. William Schaffner, chair of preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, Tenn.

“It’s actually not in itself so scary but you wonder about the procedures in that laboratory,” said Schaffner, who is also a former president of the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases. “Could that lab and perhaps others actually misplace vials that have the complete virus so that it might escape?”

For all we know, the vials disappeared months ago, which brings up the possibility that other infectious disease tubes may have also disappeared.

Apparently, security at these high level research facilities is not up to par. Last year a vial of Guanarito bio-terror agent capable of being used in a “contagion attack” disappeared from a Galveston, TX facility. The incident was voluntarily disclosed to the public but the lost tube has yet to be located.

What’s scary is that, even though such events must be reported to the CDC by law, the public really has no way of knowing whether a deadly agent has been compromised, giving ample time for such a virus to spread should it be released as a weapon.

Moreover, we now have government facilities being built in and around population centers such as the Bio Safety Level 4 facility centrally located in Kansas.

In the wrong hands, one of these agents could easily be used to attack an entire population – and given the “security” of these facilities it may not be so hard to acquire one. And once they have it, it’s as simple as releasing it in a major airport, sitting back, and watching the infection spread and kill off thousands, or perhaps millions of people.

Canadian Parents Outraged After School Officials Vaccinate Their Children Without Consent

Girl-VaccineControversy has erupted in western Canada after public school nurses reportedly vaccinated a 14-year-old student without her parents’ consent. CBC.ca reports that the Bootsma family of British Columbia is furious and demanding answers after their ninth-grader was pulled out of class one day and coerced into getting the combination DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis) vaccine without a parental consent form or even parental notification.

Dean Bootsma says his daughter became a target of the state after school officials learned that she had not been jabbed like most of the other children in her class, a conscious and deliberate decision that he and his wife made after their other daughter died following routine vaccinations. Believing that their now-14-year-old daughter, who has chosen to remain anonymous, may also have a predisposition to vaccine adverse events, the Bootsmas hoped to take the precautionary route by avoiding vaccines altogether.

But these hopes were dashed when faculty at the local public school preyed on the young girl, essentially intimidating her into getting the shot against her will. Speaking to reporters, the girl explained that she was never really given the option to decline the vaccine, even though she was fully aware at the time that her parents did not want her to get vaccinated, of course for her own protection.

“My sister in the past had an allergic reaction to it,” stated the 14-year-old about her sister who reportedly died 10 years ago after suffering from a brain malformation known as cerebral dysgenesis. The Bootsmas say the child was a perfectly healthy baby until she got her shots, after which her health quickly declined. “I didn’t really know what to do,” she added, “and [the nurse] didn’t really give me an option to not get a vaccine.”

BC laws allow ‘mature’ minors to make their own vaccine decisions

In defense of the school’s decision, the Fraser Health Authority, which governs the health services provided to the public where the Bootsmas live, cited the so-called B.C. Infants Act, which apparently allows children 14 years of age or older who are deemed to be “mature” to decide on their own whether or not to get vaccinated.

According to CBC.ca, as long as a doctor or nurse believes a child to be mature enough to fully understand the risks and benefits associated with a particular vaccine, that child can decide to accept it without first consulting with the mother or father, an outrageous provision that allows the state to essentially override parental authority in matters of medical treatment for minors.

“The fact that they did this without our knowledge or consent sickens me,” stated Dean Bootsma to reporters. “I’ve never felt so violated.”

BC health officer admits government targets unvaccinated minors

Obviously unashamed of their horrendous and predatory behavior in the matter, both the state and the school admitted that, when vaccination compliance rates get “too low,” public health nurses specifically target unvaccinated children using the B.C. Infants Act as legal cover. And in many cases, they are successful in convincing these impressionable young minds to follow the state’s lead rather than first consult their parents.

“Nurses will, in fact, go and look for the unvaccinated kids to see if they can get them vaccinated,” stated Provincial Health Officer Perry Kendall to CBC.ca, adding that, once a child is convinced to sign a mature minor consent form by school officials, that same child is released from the protection of his or her parents and treated as open game for the compliance pursuits of the vaccine industry.

NYC to MANDATE Flu Shots for Children Under 6

Elizabeth Renter
February 3, 2014

Vaccinations used to be optional. But increasingly, with marketing pushing them from every angle, it seems like we have less of a choice. In New York City, the youngest and likely most vulnerable will soon not have a choice at all. There, the Board of Health voted to mandate flu vaccines for children under 6 who go to preschool or day care.

The initiative will take effect in only 30 days and will affect 150,000 children. Deputy Commissioner for Disease Control Dr. Jay Varma says the shots could keep “as many as about 20,000” kids from getting sick. But he doesn’t say anything about the trade-offs.

While vaccine-makers would have us all believe that their toxins aren’t only effective, but completely safe, they aren’t telling the whole truth. Vaccines come with risks, and anything that comes with risks cannot be labeled inherently safe.

These corporations and often the government won’t think twice to tell you that mercury has been removed from their products. But they turn around and admit to containing something known as thimerosal—a preservative containing mercury! They say this mercury is not only safe—despite mercury being one of the most toxic elements on the periodic table—but that it helps the vaccine work more efficiently. In other words, they want you to believe this known-toxin is good for your health.

The vaccine industry has many people convinced that their products are safe. And why wouldn’t they work towards this end? After all, they wouldn’t make money if their scientists were doing work that uncovered the true risks. More than likely, if a study declares vaccines are safe, effective, and without risks, there is a money trail leading right back to the corporations who make them.

Research continues to mount on the dangers of this practice. There have been reports from long term statistical surveys (epidemiological) confirming suspicions that those who are vaccinated often don’t do as well with long term health as those who are vaccination free. Vaccine dangers are real, but those in power don’t want you to know about them.

If NYC thinks they are making their city safer or healthier, they have been sorely misled.

While the city says parents can opt out for religious or medical reasons, that isn’t enough. Parents should be able to opt in – not have to opt out. Vaccines are a risky endeavor, particularly for the youngest among us. To have to align yourself with a religion in order to opt out is a twist on civil liberties that a country known for its freedom shouldn’t make.
