Sherri Tenpenny is not a scientific researcher and she does not know how to set up a study

 A couple of days ago, this meme started making the rounds through the internet:



Strange - I have a friend who had the same experience with measles and pertussis (I think it was even third grade that he missed), but he is pro-vaccine as a result. Tenpenny on the other hand is convinced that if a study looked at the "tens of thousands" of unvaccinated children and compared, say, days missed from school, it would find that unvaccinated children miss less school, and that would be a sign that "the unvaccinated kis are healthier" (1:49). Then again, she did miss third grade, because she "was sick, and it was good" (1:55). Or maybe she just is "not a scientific researcher" and does "not know how to set all these things up" (2:01). Listen for yourself:

  1. I don't think she has time to set up studies surrounding vaccinations... her schedule is rather full speaking to legions of antivaxxers where she can hawk her DVDs for $29.99 a pop and where she can sell a range of supplements for as much as $68 for a single bottle which can be found at health food stores for roughly a third of that cost.

    Quite a little racket she has going on here - and science would only serve to harm her image, so why bother?

    6. Success = profits, right?

      Bad medicine = lawsuits & bad PR

      Plus, these companies are monolithic entities controlled by computers, these researchers and scientists have families too - do you really think they would be part of some conspiracy to hurt people?

      Seriously, anti-vax people need to get a better grip on reality.

      Is the the same brave Anonymous who asked for "non-statistical" studies on the other thread?

      "Do your own research. Big Pharma is driven by money not success."

      Okay, help us here. Show is verifiable proof that "Big Pharma" gets less money by the treatment of diseases than preventing them with a few vaccines. It should be along the lines of this economic study:

      Pediatrics. 2014 Apr;133(4):577-85.
      Economic Evaluation of the Routine Childhood Immunization Program in the United States, 2009.

      Prove to us that it is better to let kids get sick enough to require hospital care, or that they miss weeks of school.

    8. Look at all of our vaccinated children. They have terrible allergies. Autism. Epilepsy. So Ohhh okay they work. To keep the Masses buying more drugs just to feel good. Yes makes sense? Get a grip DRUGS are no good! How about cleaning up farming and giving us good food to put in our bodies? Hmm !

    9. What a silly claim with no evidence to back it up. In fact studies that have examined aspects of your silly claim have found that children with autism are less likely to have been vaccinated when they have an older sibling who is autistic and unvaccinated have more allergies and asthma than vaccinated children.

    11. I wanted to see what the actual numbers are for hepatitis B and liver cancer. Turns out Chris was VERY conservative in his original response:

      The American Cancer Society’s estimates for primary liver cancer and intrahepatic bile duct cancer in the United States for 2015 are:
      * About 35,660 new cases (25,510 in men and 10,150 in women) will be diagnosed
      * About 24,550 people (17,030 men and 7,520 women) will die of these cancers
      http://www.cancer.org/cancer/livercancer/detailedguide/liver-cancer-what-is-key-statistics

      Worldwide, chronic infection with hepatitis causes 80% of all primary liver cancers and more than 500,000 people die each year from this lethal cancer. Currently, primary liver cancer has a 5-year survival rate of only 10%.

      So glad we made the decision to vaccinate our daughter.

    13. Hep B is a sexually transmitted disease. The ONLY ways a baby can get Hep B is if one parent has Hep B, if you live with someone who has Hep B, or if you share a razor or toothbrush with someone who has Hep B. Neither my husband nor I have an STD, therefore we did not vaccinate our son for Hep B. I would prefer to keep the metals out of his body, and I don't think every baby needs this vaccination.

    15. If people were eating healthier diets and keeping their liver clean and detoxed to begin with, there wouldn't be all that cancer growing in the liver. Seriously! It looks like someone here needs to study cellular health and functional medicine. I have seen many cancer patients go on a vegetarian diet, find herbs and alternative protocol to detox and really clean out the liver. They are cancer free today. Too many pharmaceutical companies want people to rely on them instead of learning how to live a healthy lifestyle. It is all about the money in the end. And look who is making the most and is in control of the healthcare laws. Seriously! Someone needs to open up their mind and start understanding health from a functional medical stand point. But, from many of the comments here, I would say many are pretty hard headed and won't listen to the research (And, yes there is research to support those folks out there trying to make sense of the vaccine dilemma) I didn't put my name on here because it wouldn't matter anyway. So don't jump on the bandwagon about me being Anonymous.

      Typical - scripted - tactics these paid shill trolls use are "prove it" and outright lies to get you to believe them.
      Research how many times a lie has been spewed by these criminals and it will be clear that it's easy for them to do.
      As a start; consider "Second Opinion: Laetrile at Sloan-Kettering" It should make anyone so pissed and disgusted; and to realize that you CANNOT trust what Pharmaceutical companies, the FDA, the Government and many other "high profile" pricks tell you. Consider ALL the lies from these types of people and then consider who you should be listening to for facts.

    18. Dr. Tenpenny set up an alias account on Facebook. After being banned from her Vaccine page for posting the truth I wrote this to her alias user John Smith: Sad, you asked for a single example of a vaccine that had succeeded. I gave you your life free to walk unencumbered by Polio, your jaw free to chew cured of Tetanus (lockjaw) and the world without a single case of Chicken Pox. Because I show the effectiveness of vaccines on a site dedicated to future pestilence and dead children, I was banned and my posts deleted. In a world where truth is an ignorant collective banter welcome what you seek in the rows of dead children in the cemeteries before 1940. The doctors now see diseases in this country that they had never seen in their residency and had only read of in their textbooks. Just the same I guess it is your living to kill children.

    20. The first citation is in rodents. The second citation looks like an editorial comment. They are both just titles, no abstract. Though we can definitely see second citation is in "News and Comments", so is definitely an opinion piece and not a study on polio vaccine.

      "Pub Med numbers are medical citations and are easily varified"

      Not really. Not everything indexed on PubMed are medical studies, sometimes they are just comments.

  4. One thing that a lot of people might have missed is the statement on her web page that she is a practitioner of "Integrative Medicine." Yet, she goes on to say that the therapy she provides is "holistic and non-pharmaceutical."

    Well...what she is describing is NOT Integrative Medicine. I caught this because I am a registered nurse and also a devotee of Integrative Medicine, which is a true amalgam of allopathic (aka orthodox or Western Medicine) and alternative therapies....In other words, whatever works, therapeutically, for the particular patient. Therefore, either out of ignorance, sloth, or ethical deficit, she is misrepresenting whatever it is she practices.

    BTW...it is not particularly heretical for a nurse to be interested in Integrative Medicine. According to a survey done about 2 years ago, 41% of all health care professionals integrate alternative medicine into their own health care.

      This is an appeal to popularity; just because there are many who believe in alternative therapies, doesn't mean it is effective. Now I don't know what it is you offer so I won't make any assumptions. If a nice massage or even reiki or what have you makes a patient feel better as an adjunct to evidence-based medicine, then I don't see a problem with that. I do have a problem with false claims of effectiveness of alternative practises and when medicine is eschewed in favour of alternative practises.

    3. "the cause of a particular condition rather than managing/treating the symptoms?"

      Depends of if the "cause" is based on reality.

      Prescribing antibiotics is treating a real cause, a bacterial infection.

      Prescribing homeopathy, colonics, etc to treat cancer, diabetes, HIV, etc is not treating the cause.

As time moves forward; only idiots would deny this - what was once considered quackery. Your "all is correct; and all that is correct now will be forever" attitude is retarded. How much do they pay you to be a paid shill troll by the way?

    1. The way they get 41% is by counting people who take vitamins or supplements, get massages for muscle soreness or stress, eat organic foods and the list goes on.

Many nurses and doctors see so many sick people that this job - once one of compassion - is now a repetitive job of complacency. Nurses should be some of the most respected individuals around; but their attitudes to the public and attitudes against anything but what they are told (push drugs) is - for the most part - disgusting.

    3. "Avoiding a hospital, unless truly needed, is wise."

      One of the best ways to avoid a hospital stay is to be fully vaccinated so that you don't get hospitalized due to an illness. It sucks getting pneumonia, and it sucks even more if you could have prevented it by making sure you are vaccinated for measles, influenza, pneumococcal, etc.

    2. Very overly dramatic.....don't expect that your choices won't have consequences as well.

      Public Health policies are important - if you decide not to participate, then you (more likely your children) will be excluded from areas or places - like school, where they could be at increased risk of causing or participating in an outbreak of infectious disease.

      This measure protects both them and those who cannot be vaccinated for valid medical reasons.

      It is just common sense.

  13. You think you aren't being lied to? Think again. Then wonder - as any intelligent individual would - just how often these lies are stated and spread:
    The War On Cancer, launched in the early 1970s, set the stage for a massive influx of new ideas in fighting the disease of cancer. Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, America's leading cancer research center at the time, was assigned the task of testing an unconventional therapy called “Laetrile” in an effort to curb the public’s “false hope” in the alleged “quack” therapy.

    Ralph W. Moss PhD, a young and eager science writer, was hired by Sloan-Kettering’s public relations department in 1974 to help brief the American public on the center’s contribution to the War On Cancer. One of his first assignments was to write a biography about Dr. Kanematsu Sugiura, one of the Center’s oldest and leading research scientists as well as the original co-inventor of chemotherapy.

    While meeting with this iconic scientist to pen a biography on his 60-year career at
 Sloan-Kettering, Moss discovered that Sugiura had been studying this “quack remedy” 
in laboratory mice, and with unexpectedly positive results. Shocked and bewildered, Moss reported back to his superiors what he had discovered, only to be met with backlash and denial from Sloan-Kettering’s leaders on what their own leading scientist had found.

    Fueled by respect and admiration for Sugiura—Ralph W. Moss attempted to publicize 
the truth about Sugiura’s findings. And after all diplomatic approaches failed, Moss lived 
a double life, working as a loyal employee at Sloan-Kettering while also recruiting fellow employees to help anonymously leak this information to the American public—
through a newly formed underground organization they called—“Second Opinion”.

    Question: Is it true that tissue taken from aborted fetuses was used to develop and manufacture several routine childhood vaccines?
    Answer: Yes, cells taken from fetuses aborted in the 1960's, 70's and 80's were used to develop what are known as Human Diploid Cell Strains (HDCS). Several HDCS were then used to develop and are still used to manufacture a number of childhood and adult viral vaccines. In fact, HDCS are quickly becoming the 'growth system' of choice for viral vaccines, over and against cell strains derived from monkeys, chick embryos, and others.

    2. The issue is not benefits, or lack thereof. The issue is freedom to make an intelligent informed decision without duress. Some vaccinations are beneficial, some are not. It isn't up to me to mandate one or the other to anyone. I will decide what is best for me, based on my personal and religious beliefs. My decision is my business. Yours is yours. I respect your right to decide what is best for you and ask, no, require that I be permitted to make that same decision for me. No one should be required to be injected with anything until the person is fully and truthfully educated about what is about to be infected into their body. Bottom line, it's still that person's decision. I would rather put my effort and energy into insuring the public is truthfully educated in order for them to make an intelligent decision.

Do you think a child thinks it is fun to spend almost two weeks covered in dozens of itchy open sores, and that the week before the pox appear could be infecting someone who is vulnerable?

      Or is it Hib, which was a nightmare for emergency room doctors as toddlers quickly succumbed to meningitis and there was nothing that could be done? How about rotavirus, where a toddler could go through a month's worth of diapers in just a few days, and risk dehydration (oh, here is the fun thing: it is easily passed to the caregiver). How about hepatitis, which makes a child vulnerable to liver disease?

She originally was a very orthodox, physician with mainstream views on vaccines, but after getting involved with & following vaccine studies (& the lack of studies in many cases), she changed her p.o.v. & became a leading proponent of not vaccinating.

    1. She still doesn't have a clue of what she is talking about Mark and doesn't have the skills nor critical-thinking to parse studies.

    2. She's become a germ theory denialist which tells you everything you need to know about her critical thinking skills.

  22. Gc-Maf a natural human protein proven to kill cancer cells is weakened by the poison shots we are given along with weakening the entire immune system causing a epidemic of allergies and 1in45 autism so enjoy that poison satan.

    2. Isn't it a little bit late to be jumping aboard the GcMAF scam, just when the original grifters are moving onto something new called 'Rerum'?

    3. @Smut Clyde - Rerum is not blood derived GcMAF - what do you know about Rerum anyway?

    4. what do you know about Rerum anyway?

      it's a lucrative scam, but neither Rerum nor GcMAF have much to do with this post.

  24. @sciencemom. Can I just say you are awesome?

    And to those of you that are refusing hep b vaccine because your child is not sexually active and neither parent has hep b: what if your child needs a blood transfusion? What if they get raped? What if they become promiscuous or an IV drug user? Better to protect them before they need the protection

    1. And what if the child encounters a slobbering child in a child care setting or pre-school who has HepB?

    2. What is the chance of any of those things happening before Kindergarden!

      Nice argument, not!

      The Hep B vaccine should be totally voluntary. There is no "herd immunity" argument on this one.

    3. When do you think pre-school happens? Have you never noticed a toddler putting things in their mouth?

      You obviously do not have a clue.

    4. As someone who has taken French classes, I am amused that a spray of water is considered an insult from the great unwashed.

      Yes, pathogens are transmitted via pacifiers/soothers. Also only someone who has never cared for toddlers thinks they only mouth pacifiers/soothers.

    5. Again, what is it with using the French word for a water shower? Do you think calling someone a clever way to bathe while camping is a substitute for actual factual evidence?

    6. Evidence for what Chris?

      Delete
    7. That children who graduate from kindergarten go on to become preschoolers. Or that hepatitis b is only sexually transmitted. Or that water showers are a bad thing.

      You might start there, since it is pretty much what you claim in this thread.

  25. Thank you JHM. The rest of your comment will fall on deaf ears because "they" don't believe that any of that will ever happen to their precious snowflakes.

    1. Why do you think insults are a valid form of discussion? Do you also call thirteen year old girls who are raped "whores"? Do you call young women who wait to have sex after their wedding only to find out their hubbies have infected them "whores"?

      Are you the person who keeps getting banned from Respectful Insolence because of your sock puppets.

    2. So you are the mighty morphing sock puppet from RI! I see your only tool are infantile insults.

    3. Even worse than a sock puppet is someone who steals a 'nym.

    1. Thanks. Actually the foolishness was kind of entertaining, and we have a hint that one brave "anonymous" is the guy who keeps getting banned at RI for being a sock puppet.
