Anti-vaccine Italian Government Sacks Entire Health Expert Board
Key Excerpts from Article on Website of Newsweek

The vaccine-skeptic Italian government has sacked every member of the countrys health advisory board. Health minister Giulia Grillo removed all 30 members of the Higher Health Council Monday, arguing it is time to give space to the new. The council is the countrys most prominent body of technical-scientific experts, who advise the government on health policy. Grillo is a member of the Five Star Movement (MS5)the senior party in Italys ruling coalition, which has previously supported unproven cures for cancer and promised to overturn laws making vaccines mandatory for children. Explaining her decision, Grillo wrote on Facebook, We are the #governmentofchange and, as I have already done with the appointments of the various organs and committees of the ministry, I have chosen to open the door to other deserving personalities. MS5 came to power earlier this year on a wave of anti-establishment sentiment. The partys vaccine-skepticism has also been well-publicized. During this years election campaign, MS5 promised to reform a law that made 10 vaccines mandatory and required a doctors note to confirm the injections. In June, Grillo said parents could self-certify that their children had been vaccinated and waved the requirement for doctor confirmation.

Note: An Italian court awarded 174,000 Euros to a family whose son was found to have developed autism from an MMR vaccine. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. wrote an excellent, highly revealing article on the severe manipulations around vaccines. And don't miss an excellent study showing that nanoparticles of unknown nature are being found in vaccines.
