This is an open letter to the authors of the notorious "Danish MMR Study" but it is also intended for vaccine victims and their families,
journalists and the mass media. I would ask all recipients to use the
power of the net and disseminate this as widely as possible.

I trust that those recipients will inform the others.
I must refer, once again to the infamous "Danish MMR study" of which you
are the wretched authors. The criticism of it, by Ulf Brånell and myself
can be read at:
This criticism was sent to you in December. You were invited to comment
on it and contact me. Not one of you has done so, despite e-mails and
phone calls (don't you listen to your answering machine, Diana?). I
managed to phone Anders Hviid and a truly bizarre conversation ensued.
He first claimed that he did not know who I was, then he remembered but
said he had been unable to understand our criticism because he could not
read Swedish! Apart from the fact that our criticism is available in
both Swedish and English, Anders is the first Dane I have encountered
who cannot read Swedish (I can read Danish so what is his problem?)
Anders did not want to talk about the study (indeed, he seemed incapable
of doing so) and said I should speak to the principal author, Anders
Me: What is his phone number?
Anders: I don't know. I don't have it.
Me: Then how the hell do you communicate? Carrier pigeons?
Anders: He rings me when he wants something.
Me: Then I'll talk to you.
Anders: I can't. You must talk to the principal author.
Me: But your name is on the report.
Anders: I can't comment on that. You must talk to the principal author.
There was much more to this hilarious conversation. You can read the
rest when I write my book. If this is the way you operate, no wonder
your report is such a disaster. I also asked Anders if he had the
courage of his convictions and was willing to let me vaccinate him. "I
would have to ask my colleagues." Apparently an employee of the Danish
Serum Institute has to ask permission to be vaccinated. Extraordinary!
He said he would consult with his colleagues and ring me "in a couple of
days". He never did.
I therefore arrived at the Serum Institute with my vaccine-injured son
on Friday February 7 and asked to speak to Anders Hviid and Mads Melbye
(who also works there). I was told that they would not speak to me and
that they were calling the police to have me removed from the premises.
I said that was fine by me, but did the Serum Institute really want the
publicity that would ensue from chucking a vaccine victim, a helpless
child, into the snow? Suddenly Kåre Möllbak was available to talk to me.
Now there you have a true believer. Even though his own son suffered
convulsions after vaccination, he still thinks vaccines are great and
that the benefits outweigh the risks. He said it was a pleasure to talk
to me and we agreed that a meeting should be arranged.
I would therefore like you all to meet me on Friday 7 March at 16.30 at:
Statens Serum Institut
Artillerivej 5 2300 Copenhagen S
Fax: +45 3268 3868
and we shall have a seminar together. I suggest we conclude around
20.30. We shall go through your study and the criticism of it. We shall
also go through a number of scientific studies on the injuries caused by
vaccines and discuss the level of compensation victims should receive as
well as treatment modalities and the legal aspects, including the
possible liability of people such as yourselves and the various pending
lawsuits. We need an appropriate room with an overhead projector, a
copying machine and an on-line computer with a projector attachment. My
vaccine-injured son will be with me and you can all take turns looking
after him. This will be a salutary and educational experience for you
all. You cheerfully admit that vaccines cause injuries, brain damage and
deaths (it says so on the product insert - why is this never shown to
us?) but do everything in your power to avoid meeting a victim (see
above). This will be a great opportunity for you to see what vaccines
do. For my son you should supply a mattress, pillow, blankets and
suitable playthings, bottled spring water, gluten-free crispbread (made
by the Vasa company), organically-grown fruit (bananas and apples) and
My fee for the seminar will be GBP 1000. This is to compensate me to
some extent for the costs and loss of income I have incurred because of
you. When your article was published I was contacted by outraged vaccine
victims from around the world. They pointed out that your study was
financed by the CDC (ardent pro-vaccinators) and the NAAR (who receive
funding from vaccine manufacturers). I was told that your study was
blatant fraud and an attempt to write an alibi for yourselves and your
colleagues now that autism has reached epidemic proportions.
They begged me to write a rebuttal, which Ulf
Brånell and I duly did. I had to take
time of work to do so and to write letters such as this. Meanwhile you
get paid for your trouble. The injustice and unfairness of this is
appalling. You seem to think this is a game. You are given vast sums of
money to conduct a study (some must have been set aside for follow-up,
so my fee should be no problem) and you do a lousy job. You seem unable
to answer your critics and appear to be trying to silence them,
presumably hoping that your study will look good on your CVs and that
nobody will notice. You should be ashamed of yourselves. You should
publish a retraction in the medical journals and urge them to print our
criticism, which they have so far refused to do.
To all other recipients of this message: other vaccine victims and their
families may wish to attend the seminar. Please spread the word,
especially to families in southern Sweden and the Copenhagen area.
Please bring your vaccine-injured children if you are able to. The Serum
Institute is a 10-minute cycle ride from the central station. It would
be courteous if those attending the seminar were to inform the Serum
Institute. You might also like to inform the media:
In southern Sweden: the newspaper Sydsvenska Dagbladet:
In Denmark the newspaper Politiken mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
then there is the television of course:
It is also possible that the authors will once again threaten to call
the police and ask them to throw us out. It would save a lot of time if
someone tells the police we are coming:
and asks them if the authors of the report are guilty of manslaughter
and causing actual bodily harm. It is well documented that vaccines
cause death and injury to perfectly healthy people, the authors are all
vaccinators and promote vaccines, so do they not have a case to answer?
For those attending the seminar, please acquire, read and bring to the
meeting the following publications in addition to the article by Brånell
Book: Vaccination, by Viera Scheibner. (ISBN 0 646 15124 X)
Book: Behavioural problems in childhood - the link to vaccination Viera
Scheibner (ISBN 0-9578007-0-3)
Book: Vaccination, social violence and criminality, by Harris Coulter
Book: Vaccination, a parent's dilemma by Greg Beattie
And all the books by Neil Z. Miller
Print out, read and bring with you the following articles by Viera
similarly this article:
Voices of Safety International (VOSI) is a Standards Development
Organization (SDO) which is recognized by the National Institute of

Click on "Public Health".
Click on the V50.2 standard and read the associated Research Report that
PROVES that children are 12 times more likely to become autistic after
being vaccinated compared to never having been vaccinated.
You should also familiarise yourselves with the following sites and
material on the net:
The founder and president of the Autism Research Institute, Bernard
Rimland, is of the opinion that vaccines cause autism. Here is an
article he wrote on the subject:
http://www.whale.to/vaccines.html or http://184.108.40.206/vaccines.html
We shall also discuss treatments that can be used to treat and detoxify
those injured by vaccines:

This site is important. Conventional medicine is built on a foundation
of fraud. 85% of medical and surgical procedures are scientifically
unproven (British Medical Journal October 1991)
Only one in 24,000 drug reactions is ever reported by the doctor
(British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology 1997; 43:177-181).
Drug reactions are now the world's fourth major killer. They cause more
than 100,000 deaths in the USA every year. Only heart disease, cancer
and stroke are more dangerous than drugs
(JAMA 1998; 279 1200-05)
Few people are aware of how endemic and widespread fraud is in medicine.
For an in-depth study, read the book The Betrayers of Truth by Broad &
Wade, or order The Pharmaceutical Drug racket" from the Vaccination
Information site below.
Neil Z. Miller's site. Neil is the author of several books on vaccines.
Dr Mercola writes: lot of people ask me where to find good articles on
the subject of vaccination. I recommend http://www.redflagsweekly.com
"A single vaccine given to a six-pound newborn is the equivalent of
giving a 180 lb. adult 30 vaccinations on the same day. Include in this
the toxic effects of high levels of aluminum and formaldehyde contained
in some vaccines, and the synergist toxicity could be increased to
unknown levels. Further, it is very well known that infants do not
produce significant levels of bile or have adult renal capacity for
several months after birth. Bilary transport is the major biochemical
route by which mercury is removed from the body, and infants cannot do
this very well. They also do not possess the renal (kidney) capacity to
remove aluminum. Additionally, mercury is a well-known inhibitor of
kidney function." - Boyd Haley Ph.D.
The following study shows that bcg vaccine increases the risk of tb:
See you all in Copenhagen!
