    Anthrax Induced Multiple Myeloma

    This book confirmed my suspicions. I was daignosed in April 2003 with Multiple Myeloma (an immune system cancer of the plasma cells) while being Active Duty military. The military denied any relation of the Vaccine to the disease. I also developed other illnesses right after the shots. I received 5 of a 6 shot series. I also have 7 vertebrae that have cement in them so I can walk - a direct cause of the cancer. For more information on Mulplie Myeloma go to the International Myeloma Foundation (IMF). You can take this book SERIOUSLY because almost 1/5 of the book is devoted to DOCUMENTATION, much obtained from the US Government only available to the Freedom of Information Act. It is a truy impressive, in fact the most impressive and documented book I have ever read. Bob Woodward could learn from Gary Matsumoto. I even sent Pam Asa, the heroine of the true story, an e-mail and she did respond. If you or one of your loved ones received the Anthrax shots buy this book, read it, and pass it on to others. The book is well written, puts real science into everyday English, and is interesting. There is no reason not to buy it and read it. Buying this book will actually encourage other journalists to investigate real issues and publish the work.

    Something 'ALL' Americans should know about our Government!!!

    This is also my story and the EXACT same story I've been telling in more than two decades since I received three experimental inoculations, under bizarre conditions, against my will and without my informed consent, at Dugway Army Proving Grounds, UT in 1981, and began experiencing severe symptoms that are now collectively known as 'Gulf War Illness.' Dugway Army Proving Grounds, UT, in the early 1980s, is precisely the location and time-frame where a new, experimental Anthrax vaccine was being developed to counter a new USSR Anthrax variant (discovered in 1979) for which the US didn't have an effective vaccine. By 'connecting the dots,' I've come to believe that I am one of the first, if not 'Guinea Pig Number One,' for the experimental anthrax vaccination (with the 'adjuvant' squalene) that has led to autoimmune disorders and Gulf War Illness (GWI). Something that most Americans, including military personnel, don't know is that the uniformed military are used extensively for all manner of experimental vaccinations . . . if you're in the uniformed services, consider that you're a target for experimental vaccination(s) without your knowledge or informed consent; if you're in the military, and become ill (or worse, die or commit suicide) with strange, oftentimes untenable symptoms, then consider that you're just another number that the U.S. Government has used as a human guinea pig, but will never recognize and, all-too-often, never help. If you want to know what I, and tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of uniformed military are suffering from, please read this book! If you're an immediate family member of someone in the military, you should also know that you, too, can be used as a human guinea pig: for example, even military families are being used in late-stage development testing of a new smallpox vaccine. If you'd like more immediate information about this topic, do an advanced search at http://www.cbsnews.com/ for 'Sharyl Attkisson military vaccine'. There are many dozens of very good web sites but I respect Ms. Attkisson for bringing attention to this issue through her national-level reporting on the 'CBS Evening News.'

    REVEALING SHOCKER !

    As a disabled gulf war era veteran, I could never put two and two together with my wide range of gradually disabling conditions. I strongly believe that the squalene adjuvant is the fools gold of the vaccine industry and may be in use in a wide range of experimental anti cancer vaccines on the horizons based on some of my research by looking for vaccines that contain squalene which is also known as MF-59. At the very core of this issue we may all be dismayed to one day find that the vaccine industry is more than just corrupt. We may indeed find that there is a EUGENICS aspect to this as well. I am particularly concerned because I have two daughters, one almost fourteen, and recently there is a movement to make the cervical cancer vaccine manditory. If the end result of these vaccinations doesn't make these young women barren, at the very least ( if given a vaccine with the wrong adjuvant or additive )...they will become as so many veterans have become disabled adults lined up nationwide at the pharmacy, hopelessly reliant on a wide variety of medications. Here is the basic formula : M= Make Them Sick, but not dead N = Make them need pain meds,etc. P = PROFIT M+N = P Just my opinion for now. But I highly encourage everyone to read this book. It is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to human experimentation by the U.S. Military as well as our government in general. See Project 112, Project SHAD, Project MK ULTRA. Also research the horrible health effects of Depleted Uranium, JP-8 jet fuel ( over 400 compounds ). GARY has expertly focused on the Anthrax Vaccine isue here. Read it and consider the consequences of this occuring in several vaccines across the globe. I would also voice concern about the endless flogging to death of the Avian Flu Vaccine Hype. Sincerely, Thomas W. Trefts Director of the Unified Veterans Coalition xsorbit27.com/users5/unifiedveteranscoalition/index. php

    Oh, I believe it.

    As a mother of two vaccine injured children seeing the cover up by the CDC, NIH, FDA and IOM about thimerisol, I am not surprised that this is going on. This is a very well written book that touches politics, science and especially how bad business snowballs.
