Dr. David Gorski Falsely Denies Vaccine-Miscarriage Finding

Crooked cancer doc David Gorski‘s verbose posts can be completely demolished if you can find and refute the one sentence in his posts that attempts to make a real point. That is exactly what was done when Autism Investigated refuted his denying the significance of an association between miscarriage and flu vaccination that was published in a recent study. He falsely described the finding on his blog thusly:

an aOR [adjusted odds ratio] of 2.0 for the 1-28 day window of exposure to the influenza vaccine before miscarriage that was not statistically significant

However, the study itself directly contradicts Gorski’s assertion of insignificance. So AI’s editor took to Twitter to call him out.

And Gorski was also called out on his own blog. Gorski replied with an excuse:

When one writes blog posts in one’s spare time late at night, such things occasionally happen; one occasionally makes mistakes.

Yet none of his supporters caught the error either, including both a doctoral epidemiology student at Johns Hopkins and a Ph.D. epidemiologist. Despite correcting the error in one sentence, Gorski still has yet to correct it in another sentence in that same blog post:

Basically, the study found zero (that’s right: zero, nada, zilch) association between miscarriage and flu vaccination—with one exception: if the woman had consecutively received a flu vaccine containing the 2009 H1N1 virus. 

Never mind the overall adjusted odds ratio that Gorski now acknowledges as being significant. From there, Gorski’s case against the study falls apart: it was not a fishing expedition for statistical association. It found an association per study protocol and attempted to assess that association further.

Further study yielded an association in a subgroup of women who would already have a body burden of mercury from a prior vaccine, making them more susceptible than other women. But Gorski says this is evidence against the association being real!

For years, Gorski has openly supported government officials crookedly hiding scientific results and barring more research of mercury exposure from vaccines. He also claimed he would acknowledge that mercury in vaccines may cause autism if presented with certain evidence, only to refuse when confronted with that evidence years later.

Why Gorski lies about vaccination risks to children may be explained by his own ties to the pharmaceutical industry. But another factor could be much more personal – possible bitterness over his lack of children despite being in a heterosexual marriage. Perhaps the reason for this is biological and not by choice. If so, what better way for him to get back at society for his or his wife’s infertility than to spread lies that can lead to more miscarriages and brain-damaged children?

20 Thoughts on “Dr. David Gorski Falsely Denies Vaccine-Miscarriage Finding

  1. A paid liar, caught in a lie.

    I guess sociopaths are easy to find in today’s society . But smart ones … not so much.

    Thanks again Jake, for everything you do to expose these monsters.

    Corrections are essential to on-line integrity.

    For example: When was Thompson’s PNAS paper published–and when did you correct your statement regarding its publication date?

    Gorski is a very nasty piece of work indeed, He is no scientist , he is a fool.

  4. Hitting below the belt by invoking Gorski’s sperm count aside, Jake has a point.

    Gorski’s argument that it was a fishing experiment to find an association after initially finding none completely falls apart. In fact, you can argue it was the exact opposite. Having found an association as per the protocol they could’ve left and written things up as such, but it appears they wanted to limit the damage by finding no associations for the other subgroups.

    Gorski is completely putting the cart before the horse, and, this brings us to an important question: How likely is it that Gorski’s error that is so central to his misleading argument is an honest mistake?

  5. Breaking news, Gorski humiliated into correcting another false statement in his post.

    His given reason is gold: “because, unlike The Gnat [me], I am intellectually honest.”

    Have a listen to Dr Chris Shade talking about mercury exposure across the generations .
    Again it seems like we are talking about an epigenetic synergistic poisoning .

    If I hear any more of our so called false leaders AnnOunce on our side Announce they are pro-vaccine but I want to talk about vaccine safety I will go bananas . (read the capitals)

    Vaccines cannot ever be made safe , they are a fraud , a sham , a lie , and much worse .
    Vaccination is a failed technology . Vaccines are biological weapons of war .

    Look what is on stupid old wikiepedia


    Iraq now has the highest incidence of Parkinson’s in the world. Parkinson’s symptoms are very similar to mercury poisoning symptoms. Mercury that enters the brain has a half-life of 27.5 years and chelators are not able to remove it.
