The lady doth protest too much (Hamlet)

Medical media routinely publish squeaky-clean bills of health for Big Pharma’s rich but vexed vaccine industry, despite the fact that the exponential growth of vaccines parallels the exponential growth of autism, cancer, and autoimmune diseases. Despite their obvious correlation with multimorbidity (vaccinosis) and possible iatrogenesis, vaccines ironically enjoy more immunity than they convey. Vaccines vex, and Big Pharma writes big checks.

*Autoimmune disease, in which our immune system rejects our own body, underlies many diseases, including allergy, arthritis, asthma, carditis, celiac, colitis, diabetes, encephalitis, fibromyalgia, hepatitis, ileitis, iritis, nephritis, pancreatitis, thyroiditis, and vasculitis. But sadly, three medical media taboos are Big Pharma, iatrogenesis (doctor-induced disease), and vaccinosis (vaccine-induced disease). Are vaccines Big Pharma's sacred, secret, cash cow?
