When you have a conflict of interest, you are compromised. The only question really is how much. You may be the most ethical, stand up person around, but so long as that conflict exists whatever you say and do can and should be reasonably questioned and suspect. That is one of the key underlying problems with the mainstream vaccine paradigm parroted by the CDC and other health regulatory agencies, the media, and medical trade associations.
Sorry, the compromised have a cred problem
