Some people, prefer profit and greed as their sole reasons for existence. Closing their eyes to the side effects of drugs and vaccines (which often include death), they use whatever trickery and deception of the destitute that they deem necessary in order to further their own careers and line their own pockets.
According to an article [www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/poland/2235676/Homeless-people-die-after-bird-flu-vaccine-trial-in-Poland.html] by Matthew Day published in The Telegraph, a group of doctors recruited homeless people in Poland for a vaccine trial and paid them £1-2 (less than five dollars) to be tested with what they were told was a regular flu vaccine. What the unsuspecting, impoverished victims weren’t told is that they were actually going to be given a bird flu vaccine [www.naturalnews.com/bird_flu_vaccine.html] . The director of a center for the homeless in Poland claimed that 21 people from his center died last year, when the usual number of deaths in a given year is about eight.
The vaccine was apparently given to up to 350 poor and homeless people last year. The medical personnel are disputing the claim by the authorities that the homeless people weren’t told that they were testing a bird flu vaccine [www.naturalnews.com/flu_vaccine.html] . There is no information about the level of involvement of the pharmaceutical companies that commissioned the trials at this time.
The Polish health minister, Ewa Kopacz, says that while there is not yet proof that the activities of any of the 3 doctors [www.naturalnews.com/doctors.html] and 6 nurses involved in the unauthorized bird flu [www.naturalnews.com/bird_flu.html] trial caused any deaths, they are forbidden to return to work and face criminal prosecution.
Sadly, it is not uncommon for poor, disadvantaged people to be used in medical trials. Many vaccines [www.naturalnews.com/vaccines.html] and drugs are first tested in Third World countries. For people who are hungry and poor, like the people used in this bird flu trial, the few paltry dollars they were paid to test this vaccine probably seemed like a fortune. That’s what makes this practice of using the needy and suffering to test a dangerous drug so absolutely deplorable.
