Children’s health has worsened dramatically since the late 1980s. This ebook lays out the facts about how ethical betrayals and the lack of integrity are impeding sound public health policy and vaccine safety science—and undermining the health of our children.
The status quo is unacceptable.
It should go without saying that no one making public health decisions that will directly affect the lives of millions of United States children and indirectly affect the lives of millions of international children through our global influence should have any ties to the pharmaceutical industry. But sadly, this is not the case.
The US urgently needs, and taxpayers firmly deserve, ethical leadership in government, industry and media who are free from conflicts both before and after taking the job. The far-reaching health decisions made need to be driven by solid and truly independent science, not personal bank accounts.

Don’t Silence the Debate …
“Debate on vaccine safety is a Kafkaesque taboo on network news channels, which accept upwards of $5.4 billion annually from pharma, or on the editorial pages of America’s newspaper conglomerates, many of which have financial ties to drug companies. …Instead of fact-based discourse, the debate… has devolved into ‘argument by credential’ and its corollary, ‘argument by insult.’ By reducing the issue to a binary choice—you’re either pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine— journalists marginalize safety advocates…, vilify the parents of vaccine-injured children and silence debate on a complex issue. …The American public is entitled to an honest, probing and robust discussion about this critical public health issue—a debate based on facts, not rooted in fear, nor on blind faith in regulators and the pharmaceutical industry.”
