MULTIPLE LAWSUITS AGAINST MERCK (MMR etc) & OTHERS: Merck & Co., maker of the MMR vaccine (measles, mumps, and rubella), defrauded the government for more than a decade in an ongoing scheme to sell the government a mumps vaccine that is mislabeled, misbranded, adulterated and falsely certified, according to two of its employees, Krahling and Wlochowski, who are sueing Merck as whistelblowers -

Merck was also the maker of Vioxx, responsible for at least 27,000 heart attacks and deaths. "On September 30, 2004, after more than 80 million patients had taken this medicine and annual sales had topped $2.5 billion, the company withdrew the drug because of an excess risk of myocardial infarctions and strokes. This represents the largest prescription-drug withdrawal in history, but had the many warning signs along the way been heeded, such a debacle could have been prevented. Neither of the two major forces in this five-and-a-half-year affair neither Merck nor the FDA fulfilled its responsibilities to the public." Failing the Public Health Rofecoxib, Merck, and the FDA, by Dr. Eric J. Topol, M.D.

Vaccine Court Awards Millions to Two Children With Autism The government did not admit that vaccines caused autism, at least in one of the children. Both cases were "unpublished," meaning information is limited, and access to medical records and other exhibits is blocked. Much of the information presented here comes from documents found at the vaccine court website. Some observers will say the vaccine-induced encephalopathy (brain disease) documented in both children is unrelated to their autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Others will say there is plenty of evidence to suggest otherwise.
