Chapter 30: Bayers Latest Chemical And Biological Weapons

Thursday, 9 August, 2001, Bayer confirms profits slump

The Cutter Drug Company - located in Berkeley, California since 1903 - began making smallpox vaccines way back in 1906, and the plague in 1944.

A San Francisco lab worker in protective clothing handles vaccine for bubonic plague, a highly contagious virus.

The Bayer Research Center is part of a worldwide research organization. We conduct pharmaceutical, biological and biotechnology research in Wuppertal, Germany; Stoke Court, England; Kyoto, Japan; Raleigh, N.C. and Berkeley, California.

Berkeley Bayer Children's Science Center

The Children's Science Center in Berkeley, California is located in the Columbus School (kindergarten through 5th grade). The old Columbus School was destroyed by an earthquake in 1989, and the community believed that the new school should be an important resource for the children and families of West Berkeley. Given the proximity of Bayer's 30-acre biotechnology site, the company felt the most appropriate contribution it could make to the new school was to give it a science center. Bayer contributed $150,000 to fund the center, and Bayer scientists are working with teachers to design and equip the center and to help with curriculum ideas.

They've been making the plague ever since - 2.6 million doses every year - a $1.7 million dollar contract.

Cutter makes about $10 million per year in military bio-weapons contracts. In 1958, Cutter was sued over crippling two children with the Salk polio vaccine. (181)

First Salk polio vaccine in Midlothian, 1955.

Bayer acquired Cutter's Berkeley laboratory in 1974. In 1978, Bayer bought Miles Inc. - makers of Alka-Seltzer, One-a-Day Vitamins and Bactine. (182)

Today, this lab is known as "Miles Cutter." Federal inspectors from Rockville, Maryland, did a routine inspection of Miles Cutter's plague vaccine "on the assumption that [it] would be used in the Gulf War." (183)

Concern by some Gulf War veterans that vaccines may have contributed to their unexplained illnesses led to the vaccine use study.

Interestingly, many biologists believe that there is "no feasible defense against biological attack" because "the variety of attack agents is too large." (184) If vaccines are useless for defense, why are they being made?

Well ... what other "weapon of mass destruction" can you grow in a petri dish? As weapons of mass destruction go, they're the biggest bang for your war-profiteering buck.

May, 1986. The US Department of Commerce licenses 70 biological exports to Iraq between May of 1985 and 1989, including at least 21 batches of lethal strains of anthrax. [3] May, 1986. US Department of Commerce approves shipment of weapons grade botulin poison to Iraq. [7]

Weapon? Yes, weapon. To make a vaccine, you must first make the pathogen the vaccine will guard against. To make lots of smallpox vaccine, you have to make lots of smallpox. Bayer is essentially making useless defensive vaccines so it can get away with selling very effective offensive viruses while not (technically) running afoul of international bio-war treaties.

Bayer is also still in the poison gas business. After the Gulf War, the UN imposed far-reaching sanctions against Iraq, especially concerning getting rid of weapons of mass destruction. It has now come out that 200 tons of a basic chemical substance for the neurotoxin VX has disappeared from Iraq's armaments. The patent for the chemical warfare agent VX comes from Bayer. (185)

Powell estimated that Iraq has at least 100 metric tons and as much as 500 metric tons of chemical warfare agents, which include VX, sarin, cyclosarin and mustard gas.

Suggestions of chemical warfare will stoke fears for British troops heading towards the Gulf.

On Friday, a defence minister rejected claims that troops had been asked to sign disclaimers over vaccines being offered to the military.

Anna Vizor, of St Edmunds, Suffolk, said her husband, who is in the RAF, had rejected offers of various jabs, including anthrax.

In a letter to the Daily Telegraph, Ms Vizor said: "He was told if he wanted to have these jabs, he had to sign a disclaimer saying that if he was ill in the future, he couldn't claim any compensation."

'No vaccine disclaimer'

Defence Minister Lewis Moonie told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "They are not being asked to sign waivers. Categorically not. It is the exact opposite."

Dr Moonie continued: "When somebody refuses a vaccination - not when they take it - a record is kept, signed by the doctor and the person, saying that they understand that they have been offered the vaccination and have refused it.

"We have very good public health reasons for wanting our people to take all the vaccinations, not just anthrax.

"That's why we do try to put pressure on them, but it is a voluntary act."
