Norway Shocked By New Documentary

Norway Shocked By New Documentary.

A television documentary screened last night in Norway showed the shocking long-term effects of a vaccine recently injected into one million healthy New Zealand children.

The documentary, ‘The Vaccine Experiment - In The Service of Good’ has sparked an outcry against a meningococcal vaccine trial in Norway. (See also… http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/HL0610/S00257.htm)

The documentary presents compelling evidence of serious adverse effects resulting from the 'parent' Norwegian vaccine and New Zealand's experimental MeNZB vaccine. The film reveals a remarkable trail of lies and deceit by meningococcal vaccine officials and researchers in Norway and New Zealand.

Connie Barr, a Norwegian TV personality who made 'enlistment' films for the original vaccine trial, hosts the film. It outlines her change of heart as the evidence of medical misadventure began to build up.

Ms Barr says the films she made in the 80's to attract youth to participate in the vaccine experiment had a very strong effect. "The more I looked into the material, the clearer I saw this was an ugly story."

The film features leading medical experts in Norway who heavily criticize the Norwegian Institute of Public Health for withholding information on the dangers of the vaccine and the fact those who did get sick had to fight for years to get compensation.

"The Norwegian situation is so similar to New Zealand's it is scary," says Risk & Policy Analyst Ron Law.

The Norwegian parent vaccine is considered bio-identical to the MeNZB vaccine – to the extent that Norwegian bridging data was used in lieu of phase three trials.

Norwegian manufactured vaccine was also used in the majority of the trials in New Zealand and an unspecified amount was used in the final rollout.

Researcher/Writer Barbara Sumner Burstyn comments New Zealand seems to be in a state of denial at the extent of the fraud surrounding the development and use of the vaccine. "From the highest levels of government to media and the medical profession, we seem to be desperate to believe everything is fine with this vaccine, despite copious evidence to the contrary."

The documentary reveals that New Zealand officials were warned about serious long-term adverse effects following the meningococcal vaccine in 2003. Officials systematically chose to keep quiet about those serious adverse effects.

"There has clearly been a cover-up by Ministry of Health officials and advisors that warrants a formal inquiry," says Ron Law.
