GSK Rotavirus vaccine contaminated with Pig virus

This is very interesting... thinking about a resurgence of swine flu that it is alleged will be coming from children. With all health authorities urging children to be vaccinated, as the front line fighters for flu, including swine flu, from pigs.

So, keeping that in mind, let's get back to contaminated Glaxo-Smith Kline rotavirus vaccine.

On Monday, as the nation was fully focused (distracted) on passage of the sweeping health care reform bill, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a recommendation regarding a common vaccine given to children to prevent severe diarrhea. The FDA told doctors to temporarily suspend use of GlaxoSmithKline's (GSK) Rotarix vaccine for rotavirus immunization while the agency investigates an extraneous component found in the vaccine.

GlaxoSmithKline notified the FDA on March 15 that an independent U.S. academic research team found, through novel methods, that the vaccine contains DNA from porcine circovirus 1 (PCV1), that is, components of a virus common among pigs. The FDA said there is no evidence at this time that this finding poses a safety risk, adding that "PCV1 is not known to cause illness in humans or other animals."

Contaminated with pig virus! How is that possible?
Of course health authorities are saying, it is benign, it is harmless...but, do they really know that? Obviously they do not! Glaxo-Smith Kline was unaware their vaccine was contaminated. So realistically they are unaware of it's alleged safety or not.
How about if that pig virus swimming around in the human body, meets up with another pig virus? What then? How may they react? Particularly when mixed with other viruses? Like during a massive global vaccine campaign?

About 1 million children in the United States and about 30 million worldwide have gotten Rotarix vaccine, she said.

GSK says:
"it (pig virus) is found in everyday meat products and is frequently eaten with no resulting disease or illness."

Frequently eaten? Without disease or illness?
Let's put that sentence another way, that same virus is often eaten with resulting disease and illness. Same sentence. More appropriate wording. GSK doesn't have a clue if this is safe.


  1. It's frequently eaten? Well of course! The throat and the stomach have very robust means of dealing with viruses. My uncle who was a virologist told me that it's impossible to catch AIDS by swallowing anything. Injecting a virus directly into your bloodstream on the other hand is a whole other story.

    To declare something is safe because you can eat it is bullshit and they know it.

  2. OH, I think they do know it nobody, they are just hopin' as usual they can pull the wool over the eyes of people.
    Would you be surprised to know the showed up right here on the blog.
    had a hit from Glaxosmithkline.
    I assume they monitor what is being said on line about them?
