Dead Merck Vaccine Chief Wanted You to Appreciate Brain Injury

The Merck logo is a more accurate depiction of what Dr. Mahmoud represented than any actual photo of his face.

A former president of Merck’s vaccine division is dead. While his death brings sadness to the vaccine industry and his own family, it brings none to Autism Investigated. Dr. Adel Mahmoud brought such disasters upon us as the shingles vaccine, the HPV vaccine and the combined measles-mumps-rubella-varicella (MMRV) vaccine. Even worse than the horrors he created, however, was his support for censoring anything that showed vaccines were poisoning kids.

For instance, BBC positively reported on a scientist being disciplined for reporting a vaccine-autism link:

The MMR was introduced into the UK in 1988, but became increasingly controversial following Andrew Wakefield’s study published in the Lancet in the late 1990s, which linked the vaccine with autism.

That study has now been discredited, and Dr Wakefield faces the prospect of serious professional misconduct charges.

According to Mahmoud:

“…that knowledge was twisted in such a way to play in the hands of the anti-vaccine movement and not really appreciate what vaccines are all about.”

Tell us, Dr. Mahmoud, what parents of vaccine-injured children should “appreciate” about vaccines.

“They are about protection of individual, but also protection of the society so you achieve ‘herd immunity’.”

That’s why you should appreciate your child’s brain injury! So your child can protect children for whom the vaccine wasn’t effective or immunocompromised children your child will probably never meet anyway. Thanks doc!

The fact is, we shouldn’t gloat over his death. It’s not to say he was a good guy, which he wasn’t. However, the damage has already been done and will be carried on by others.
