WE NEED YOUR HELP TO PREVENT FURTHER DEATHS FROM VCJD AND KEEP OUR BLOOD SUPPLY AND YOUR FAMILIES SAFE…….

‘1 in 2,000 of the UK’ now carry or incubate Human BSE, mad cow disease. Many of these people will be blood donors, hospital patients.

Donated blood in the UK is not screened or free of vCJD. ‘The easiest way of transmitting vCJD to an individual is through blood’ Professor John Collinge, World Expert vCJD, UCL (December 8th 2009)

All individual blood donors should be screened for vCJD before they give blood.

Medical experts and scientists are predicting a ‘Secondary wave of vCJD victims from donated blood, blood products and surgical procedures’.

At least 18 blood donors have gone on to develop and die of vCJD, these donors have given blood to individuals who have also died of vCJD.

Mark Turner (SABTO, Safety of Blood Tissue and Organs committee) 2009 said ‘The numbers at risk are clear; there could be 6,000 infectious doses of vCJD in one blood transfusion. Blood donations hold a significant risk and concern to SABTO’

Thousands of haemophiliacs, many of these children under the aged of 16 years have been given blood contaminated with vCJD, many are now disabled and have been radically affected by the ‘at risk of vCJD’ status they now hold.

Individuals can also ‘Silently carry vCJD’ never develop the disease but have the potential to pass vCJD onwards through blood and blood products. Professor John Collinge told BBC1 that ‘Probably one in a thousand of the UK population could be carrying vCJD’.

The UK Department of Health are aware of  donors who are ‘silent carriers’ one blood donor remained healthy and symptom free and gave blood for 20 years. Two people who received  their blood  developed and died of  human BSE.

Earl Howe, Chair of Blood Coalition Safety Group said in (House of Commons, Committee room 2009) ‘The worry is this silent pool of possibly thousands of individuals that can give blood and pass vCJD onwards.’

Please join the campaign and demand that our Ministers and Government Officials make the UK blood supply free of vCJD and that all individual blood donors are screened for Vcjd before they give blood. There are robust screening tests being used in Europe and abroad and yet the DOH are blocking their implementation. The DOH are declaring there are ‘no screening tests available’ because they are stopping the validation of these tests which are more sensitive than the current HIV test.

Meanwhile more people will die of vCJD through blood and blood products.

We spend upwards of ‘£100 million pounds annually on keeping our blood safe’ Grahame Medley SEAC.

It’s not working, one of the latest victims of vCJD a middle aged woman is dying of vCJD after receiving a blood transfusion a few years ago, during an operation on her back.

The Department of Health and the Government are also aware of ‘Asymptomatic blood donors’. One of these ‘Silent carriers of vCJD’ has given blood to two people who have developed vCJD. The donor showed no signs of vCJD and donated blood for over 20 years, which could mean hundreds maybe thousands of people are at ‘ risk of developing vCJD from this one silent carrier’.

Email me at Mschristinelord@aol.com to support the campaign, offer information or want to know more. Help us to raise this significant health safety issue and push for implementation of individual blood donor screening test. If you are able please contact your MP and tell your family, friends and colleagues about this ‘ticking health timebomb’ those named and shamed on this website have left the UK public and global community.

The Government are aware of the dangers and know the risks and they need to act

now as hundreds maybe thousands more could die…when their lives could have been saved…….

BLOOD SAFETY CAMPAIGN

‘Today and tomorrow we can save lives’

Please join us in the campaign to screen all donated blood for vCJD, (the human form of mad cow’s disease). A lethal ticking health time bomb that concerns every member of the UK public. OUR BLOOD SUPPLY IS NOT SAFE OR FREE OF VCJD.

FACT: Every one over the age of 13 has eaten at least 50 BSE infected meals/ingested toxic BSE material via medicines/vaccines. One in a thousand of the UK population is probably carrying vCJD. (Prof John Collinge world expert UCL May 2008)

FACT: We currently filter/lecukodeplete donated blood,(costing millions) its not working one of the current victims of vCJD had a blood transfusion just a few years ago.

FACT: A blood donor, who gave blood for over 20 years, has donated blood to two people who have since died/developed vCJD. The Department of Health are aware of

‘ASYMPTOMATIC’ individuals who may never develop vCJD but can pass it onwards.

FACT: Experts believe that at least 14,220 people in the UK are silently carrying vCJD.

FACT: vCJD has not gone away and continues to kill on a regular basis.

FACT: We are not being told the truth about vCJD. Government statistics are

not recording the true numbers of cases accurately.

FACT A blood screening tests for individuals would not only show prevalence in the UK population it would also trace back the source of vCJD infection. This is something the government and architects of BSE are trying to block.

FACT; No official or Minister has ever been made accountable or faced criminal charges for the deaths of so many innocent victims and risking millions of lives.

FACT: 129 Uk Children some just a few days/ months old have lost a mother or father to vCJD.

London4editChristine with Frank Dobson former Labour MP

FACT: The most effective way to transmit the rogue prions that causes vCJD (the human form of mad cow’s disease) to a human being is intravenous.

18 UK BLOOD DONORS HAVE DIED OF VCJD

FACT: Recipients of those 18 blood donors have also died of vCJD.

FACT: Thousands of recipients of those contaminated blood products live daily with the fact that at any time they may develop vCJD. Many children under 16. An elderly haemophiliac who died was found to be ‘incubating vCJD’ in his spleen’.HE WAS MV.

FACT: One blood donor can give blood over 120 times during a lifetime. Without screening individuals one donor could put thousands at risk.

FACT: Any individual who has lived or worked in the UK since 1980 is no longer able to donate their blood in any other country in the world. The whole of the UK population is considered ‘at risk’ of passing vCJD onwards through donated blood.

FACT: Every year about 2.4 million blood donors give blood in the UK. ‘Thousands of blood donors may be carrying vCJD.’ (Statement from SABTO committee member October 2008)

FACT: BLOOD PRODUCTS DONATED BY 3 PEOPLE WHO WENT ON TO DIE OF VCJD WERE SOLD TO ELEVEN COUNTRIES. These products include routine childhood vaccines from 1996 to 2000. Most recipients have never been traced.

FACT: Two young men from the Southampton area died within weeks of each other of vCJD. Both had received polio vaccines from the same batch This batch contained over 80,000 doses and was used throughout the UK during the 1990s. Vaccines are processed using material from blood donors and cattle.

FACT: On 25/9/08 Grant Goodwin aged 30, (Glasgow) was diagnosed with vCJD from the most common genotype in the UK population. MVs make up 52 percent of the population; most blood donors/organ donors will come from this group of individuals.

 

FACT: EXPERTS BELIEVE THE INCUBATION PERIOD FOR VCJD CAN BE UPWARDS OF 50 YEARS.

FACT: THREE MOTHERS IN THE TERMINAL STAGES OF VCJD GAVE BIRTH by caesarean section in UK hospitals. These mothers have sadly since died but their children survived, two of these youngsters remain healthy but the third child a girl suffers severe brain damage and all the symptoms of vCJD. Mothers and patients that used the same delivery suites/theatre equipment after these tragic births, now live with the prospect of being ‘at risk’ of developing vCJD.

FACT: THE ROGUE PRIONS THAT CAUSE VCJD ARE NOT ALIVE SO CANNOT BE KILLED. FREEZING, RADIATION, STERILISATION, BURNING ARE UNABLE TO KILL THESE LETHAL PATHOGENS. They adhere to metal and medical equipment AND CAN REMAIN DEADLY AND ACTIVE FOR YEARS.

FACT; We face a epidemic of dementia cases; experts believe there is a link between many cases of CJD/dementia and BSE. Many of these individuals have been life long blood donors.

20th August 2010

Below is a list of blood products recalled within the USA because the donor has been found to be at ‘increased risk of vcjd, what this highlights is the length and breadth that one donor’s blood can stretch. Donations from donors in the USA not only stretch far and wide across the States but are also exported to Europe. This recall which is happening on a frequent basis in the USA highlights the significant threat that vCJD contamination poses to blood supplies around the world, and the desperate need for a blood screening test for vcjd. All individuals that give blood, tissues and organs must be screened for vCJD.

One donor has the potential to infect hundreds maybe thousands of individuals, as blood donation is not just used as whole blood, plasma but also in vaccines and various other medicines. This scenario is terrifying and it also shows how governments across the world are tracking blood donations and recipients. How many recipients who have received potentially contaminated blood world wide have been informed of their status…? The answer is not many!

One high level medic at the Prion Unit at Queens Square London, who deals with vcjd patients every day told me ‘There are literally thousand of people walking around worldwide that have no idea they have been put at risk and are at risk of developing vcjd through contaminated blood products/medicines’ UCL University College London, 2009

World Expert in prion disease Professor John Collinge added ‘We can no track blood almost to the hour it was donated…and or course recipients.’

Monday 9th August 2010Baby Billy

Check our this link on youtube re vaccines/blood:

People have died of vCJD after receiving contaminated blood. Blood products made from donations including medicines and vaccines also pose a risk. At least 18 blood donors have died of vCJD here in the UK; some of these victims gave blood for years. Over half a million people every year in the UK receive a stranger’s blood to help them cope with operations and medical procedures.

ALL BLOOD BAGS IN THE UK HAVE THIS DISCLAIMER:

RISK OF ADVERSE REACTION/INFECTION INCLUDING VCJD

An individual who is about to receive blood is usually not in a fit state to read the blood bag or the warning. This warning is not to inform but to legally cover the British government should those patients develop vCJD in the future. With this blog is a photo of Billy age 2 his mum received a blood donation and could now develop vCJD through that transfusion.

8,000 pints of donated blood is used every day by surgeons in the UK, and yet our blood is not safe or screened for vCJD.

One of the current victims of vCJD a fifty year old hospital worker is dying due to receiving contaminated blood in 2003 after a back operation. Her donor is apparently well. The UK Department of Health are aware of ‘asymptomatic donors’ people who have given blood that remain healthy but are implicated in passing vCJD onwards through their donated blood. A blood donor who gave blood for over 20 years and remains healthy, two of their blood recipients have developed vCJD.

It is estimated that up to ‘One in a thousand of the UK population could be silently carrying vCJD

2.5 million People in the UK are blood donors.

500,000 people in the UK will receive blood every year during medical procedures.

Anyone who has lived, worked, visited the UK for more than six months since 1980 is not allowed to donate blood abroad. This is causing a lack of blood for essential operations and medical procedures across the globe.

In one university in Florida USA, at least thirty percent of the students and staff could not give blood because of exposure to BSE and connections with the UK.

The BSE scandal and the significant threat its lethal human pathogen vCJD creates for the worlds blood supply continues to kill in many ways. I was informed from medics involved in last years Australian bush fires that the country suffered an acute shortage of blood needed for burns victims, as many residents due to their UK connections had been exposed to BSE.

Whenever a natural disaster or global accident occurs when l people are in dire need of donated blood, millions of individuals are banned from helping due to their exposure to BSE material.

Yet the UK government whose ministers have created this horrifying scenario continues to block development and validation of blood screening tests that would make the worlds blood supply safe. They withhold blood samples of vCJD victims, information and facts from independent scientists so that understanding of the disease remains within the confines of the British Government and its appointed medics. These scientists are funded, controlled and manipulated by the Government that created BSE/vCJD. The same in-house secrecy and corruption that killed my Andrew continues to weave its web of concealment which continues to hamper research and the truth. The UK government doesn’t want a test or extensive treatments because they are more concerned about litigation and the can of worms that would be opened. The UK government continues to protect the wrongdoing and lies of those named and shamed on this website and in doing so more lives will be lost unlawfully and needlessly. The UK government is more concerned about keeping a ‘lid on BSE/Vcjd’ than saving lives and protecting the UK public and global community. meanwhile more innocent lives will be lost and futures stolen………
