Vaccination Myths And Truths

Posted on Tuesday, August 04 at 07:50 by Milton

Of special concern is their effect on children. In America and elsewhere, they're over-immunized enough to destroy their immune systems, leaving them vulnerable to a lifetime of serious health disorders.

No one should voluntarily or otherwise take any vaccine, let alone one as untested and dangerous as for H1N1. But make no mistake. The dominant global media are readying a high intensity fear-mongering campaign to convince the unwary to jeopardize their health and well-being by doing it. Just say NO!!

In America, laws in place empower the Health and Human Services and/or Defense secretaries to declare a national emergency and order mass vaccinations. Legally, individual states can resist, but not likely when enough pressure is applied.

Under the proposed, but not enacted, October 2001 Model State Emergency Health Powers Act (MSEHPA), states are advised on how to exercise extraordinary emergency powers without regard to civil liberties issues. Individual ones have adopted some of its provisions and may add more later given the power of Washington and the media to force them.

The WHO is also empowered under the 2005 International Health Regulations (IHR) to address but not mandate global vaccinations. But it has enough influence to compel nations to go along in case of a "declared" pandemic threat, even without evidence to prove one.

Suspicious H1N1's Origins

On April 24, AP reported that

"Health officials are investigating a never-before-seen form of the flu that combines pig, bird and human viruses.... (It's) a growing medical mystery because it's unclear how (affected people) caught the virus. None (of seven cited had) contact with pigs." Nor had others reportedly affected in other US cities.

The "intercontinental" mixture included North American Swine Flu, North American Avian Flu, human H1N1 flu, and a fourth H3N2 strain found in Asia and Europe.

Suspicions about a synthetic laboratory-made virus have surfaced. Writing in NewsMax.com, Dr. Russell Blaylock quoted an unnamed viroligist saying: "Where the hell it got all these genes we don't know." According to Blalock: "Debate continues over the possibility that swine flu is a genetically engineered virus."

Dallas County Medical Director Dr. John Carlo voiced concern about the possibility that:

"This strain of swine influenza (may have been) cultured in a laboratory....something that's not been seen anywhere actually in the United States and the world...."

Recently interviewed on Russia Today TV, investigative journalist Wayne Madsen cited a University of Wisconsin lab conducting joint influenza vaccine research with drug company FluGen. On March 24, Reuters reported that:

"FluGen, Inc., an emerging leader in the development, production and delivery of influenza vaccines and related products, today announced it has secured exclusive rights to a novel, patent-protected vaccine-delivery technology (that) painlessly delivers seasonal and pandemic influenza vaccines."

Madsen believes "the Swine Flu virus began in a lab," the objective being profits for vaccine makers with products "that may not actually be safe." Many noted experts share that view about all vaccines.

NutriMedical founder Dr. William Deagle reported that 6-8% of Swine Flu DNA matches no virus on record. He believes more lethal strains may appear in the fall.

Project Camelot "provide(s) a vehicle for researchers and whistleblowers to get their stories out." Interviewed on its Whistleblower Radio show, Burk Elder Hale claimed that a senior drug company biochemist (unnamed to protect him) told him:

"....an aerosoled precursor has been put into the air and almost everyone has breathed it into their lungs. (When Swine Flu) vaccines (are) administered in the fall, (they'll) be activated when (their) constituents come into contact with the aerosoled precursor in the body and will cause a rapid spread of the H1N1 influenza A virus. The biochemist is very upset about the matter....and is a very reliable source that needs our utmost protection."

Catherine Austin Fitts is a former high-level US government official and Wall Street insider. She's now the editor of Solari.com and runs Solari, Inc. as an "online media company focusing on ethical investment and preserving family wealth."

Admitting she's no expert, she wrote this about Swine Flu on July 22:

"I believe one of the goals of the swine flu vaccine is depopulation. Perhaps it is the goal of a swine flu epidemic as well, whether bio-warfare or hype around a flu season....Lowering immune systems and increasing toxicity levels combined with poor food, water and terrorizing stress will help do the trick....a plague can so frighten and help control people that they will accept the end of their current benefits....without objection. And a plague with proper planning can be highly profitable. Whatever the truth (about) swine flu and related vaccines....it can be used (to) control (a) situation that is quickly shifting out of control."

"In short, an epidemic can be used to offset the inflation of capital with increasing deflation of the value and income of labor and continual demand destruction. (What's coming next is the) meaner face of 'the establishment against the rest of society.' "

The possibility of a diabolical depopulation scheme can't be dismissed. The idea's been around for decades, including from the 1974 Henry Kissinger project - National Security Study Memorandum 200 (NSSM 200). It was backed by powerful economic interests to cull the world population of useless feeders so corporate giants could exploit world resources unimpeded.

Kissinger's scheme was to make birth control a prerequisite for US aid. He wanted the annual death rate doubled and for a population decline in the hundreds of millions by 2000. Poor third world women in countries like Brazil were involuntarily sterilized. Millions were harmed then. Perhaps today's toll from mandatory global Swine Flu vaccinations will be billions.

Yet US laws were passed to prevent it. In 1986, the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA) required:

-- giving parents written information on vaccine benefits and risks so they could decide on what was safe for their children;

-- maintaining a permanent record of all vaccines given children, including producer names and lot numbers;

-- keeping up to date medical records of all vaccinations given children; and

-- recording all serious health problems after vaccinations were administered and notifying the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) immediately.

At issue is whether federal laws and constitutional and Nuremberg protections will help. Nuremberg requires voluntary consent with full disclosure of known risks and avoidance of experimental treatments if there's any reason to believe harm may result. The Fifth Amendment protects against abusive government authority in stating that "No person shall....be deprived of life, liberty or property, without due process of law...." The Eighth Amendment prohibits "cruel and unusual punishments." Harming human health is cruel and abusive. Mandating suspect drugs violates Nuremberg, the US Constitution, and other protective laws. Whether they'll be enforced is another matter.

Dispelling Vaccination Myths with Truths

Myth No. 1: Vaccines are safe

Under the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Reporting System) was established. Annually, it reports about 11,000 serious vaccine reactions, including up to 200 deaths and many more permanent disabilities.

Far more alarming is the following;

-- the FDA estimates that only 1% of serious adverse reactions are reported;

-- CDC says it's 10%;

-- medical school students testified before Congress that they're told not to report these incidents;

-- according to the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), only one in 40 New York doctors reported adverse vaccine reactions or deaths;

-- international studies show vaccines cause up to 10,000 US SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) deaths annually, and at least half of them are from vaccines;

-- another study determined that 3000 US children die annually from vaccines;

-- poor reporting in America suggests that annual adverse vaccine reactions, in fact, number from 100,000 - one million;

-- since 1988, the government's National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) paid families of affected children $1.2 billion in damages;

-- as authorized by the 2006 Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness (PREP) Act, HHS Secretary Sebelius, granted drug companies legal immunity (except for impossible to prove willful misconduct) to proliferate dangerous, untested Swine Flu vaccines globally;

-- vaccines are legally mandated in all 50 US states, though legally avoidable in most (under normal circumstances) as explained below;

-- in settling vaccine damage suits, drug companies impose gag orders to keep vital information from the public; and

-- insurers refuse to cover adverse vaccine reactions because of the high potential liability they'd face.

Truth No. 1

Vaccinations cause high numbers of severe reactions, permanent disabilities, and deaths as well as an enormous personal and public cost. Virtually none of this gets reported.

Myth No. 2: Vaccines are very effective

Medical literature documents significant numbers of vaccine failures for measles, mumps, small pox, pertussis, polio and Hib-causing bacterial meningitis and pneumonia. In 1989, Oman experienced a widespread polio outbreak six months after completing a population-wide immunization program. In Kansas (in 1986), 90% of 1300 reported pertussis cases were "adequately vaccinated," and 72% of Chicago pertussis incidents in 1993 had been as well.

Truth No. 2

Evidence shows that vaccinations are an unreliable and dangerous way to prevent illness and disease.

Myth No. 3: Low US disease rates are attributable to vaccines

From 1850 - 1940, well before mandatory vaccination programs, the British Association for the Advancement of Science reported a 90% decrease in childhood diseases due to improved sanitation and hygiene practices. By 1945, US medical authorities noted a 95% drop in deaths from the leading childhood infectious diseases (diphtheria, pertussis, scarlet fever and measles), well before mass-immunizations began.

A recent WHO report found that third world disease and mortality rates had no direct correlation with immunization programs, but closely relate to hygiene and diet standards.

Truth No. 3

No evidence links vaccines with infectious disease declines. Proper hygiene and diet practices may be far more effective.

Myth No. 4: Sound immunization theory and practice prove the effectiveness of vaccines

Although vaccines stimulate antibody production, no evidence suggests that alone assures immunity. A 1950 British Medical Council-published study found no relationship between antibody count and disease incidence. Natural immunization involves many bodily organs and systems. Artificially producing antibodies can't achieve it.

Research also shows how squalene adjuvants harm the human immune system, making it susceptible to numerous illnesses and diseases ranging from very annoying to life threatening. In addition, the "herd immunity" notion of mass-immunizations effectiveness is largely discredited. Just the opposite is true as evidence shows that fully vaccinated populations have experienced epidemics numerous times in the past.

Further, vaccine effectiveness "remains scientifically unproven" because no double blind studies have been conducted to do it. Significantly, recent disease outbreaks have affected more vaccinated children than unvaccinated ones. And the common practice of "one size fits all" is troublesome. It lets tiny new-borns get the same dosage as a five year old. It tolerates dubious quality control practices producing what's known as "Hot Lots" - ones associated with disproportionately high death and disability rates.

Shockingly, the FDA refuses to act preventatively against them. In fact, individual vaccine lots have almost never been recalled even when associated with severe adverse reactions. Instead, they're administered under the assumption that all recipients respond the same, regardless of race, ethnicity, genetic makeup, or other characteristics.

A recent New England Journal of Medicine-reported study found that a significant number of Romanian children receiving polio vaccine contracted the disease. Evidence linked antibiotic injections to it. One innoculation raised the polio risk eight-fold; two - nine shots, 27-fold, and 10 or more 182-fold.

New research may reveal other unknown hazards, but public safety won't be addressed until government health officials act responsibly, report accurately, and adequately protect their populations from vaccines they never should allow.

Truth No. 4

Many supposed vaccine truths have, in fact, been proved false.

Myth No. 5: Childhood diseases are extremely dangerous

False. Even CDC data show a 99.8% pertussis recovery rate during the 1992-94 period. One Cincinnati Children's Hospital infectious diseases expert said at the time: "The disease was very mild, no one died, and no one went to the intensive care unit."

Nearly always, childhood infectious diseases "are benign and self-limiting. They usually impart lifelong immunity, whereas vaccine-induced immunization (when achieved) is only temporary." In fact, it can increase vulnerability later on by postponing better tolerated childhood illnesses until adulthood when death rates (though still low) are far higher.

Most important is that nearly all common infectious diseases are rarely dangerous, and, in fact, can develop strong, healthy adult immune systems when they're most needed. In addition, few people know that children who didn't contract measles have a higher incidence of skin diseases, degenerative bone and cartilage ones, and tumors while ovarian cancer is higher among mumps-free adult women. The human immune system benefits from common childhood infectious diseases. Freedom from them may be harmful later on.

Truth No. 5

Childhood disease dangers are greatly exaggerated to scare parents into getting their children vaccinated with unsafe drugs.

Myth No. 6: Polio vaccinations were very successful

False again. In 1955, when the Salk vaccine was introduced, polio was considered the most serious post-war public health problem. A year later, six New England states reported sharp rises ranging from more than double in Vermont to a 642% increase in Massachusetts. Other states also were badly impacted enough for Idaho and Utah to halt immunizations due to increased incidence and death rates.

In his 1962 congressional testimony, Dr. Bernard Greenberg, Biostatistics Department head at the University of North Carolina, reported sharp polio increases from 1957 to 1959 and a Public Health Service whitewash that suppressed it. In 1985, the CDC reported that 87% of US cases between 1973 and 1983 were caused by the vaccine. Later it added that it caused nearly all imported cases, and most of the victims were fully vaccinated.

Further, misdiagnosing, poor reporting, and cover-ups suggest that the actual number of vaccine-associated paralytic polio (VAPP) cases "may be 10 to 100 times higher than that cited by the CDC."

In 1977, even Jonas Salk admitted that mass inoculations caused most polio cases since 1961.

Truth No. 6

The Salk vaccine proved highly dangerous. Information about it was suppressed, and declines in the disease were well underway when mass-immunizations were begun. In Europe, they occurred in countries that used, then rejected the vaccine proving it was never needed in the first place. Showing also that the same is true for other diseases, including Swine Flu with the WHO and CDC admitting that most cases are mild, unthreatening, and generally pass without treatment, let alone risking dangerous unneeded vaccines.

Myth No. 7: Lack of an initial adverse reaction proves vaccines are safe

Documented long-term health problems include arthritis, chronic headaches, rashes indicative of disease, non-healing skin lesions, seizures, autism, anemia, multiple sclerosis, ALS, cancer, and many others. Ingredients common to all vaccines are at issue. Squalene adjuvants are a biological time bomb that can harm or destroy the human immune system.

Other ingredients are known toxicants and carcinogens, including thimersol (a mercury derivative), aluminum phosphate, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, and numerous gastrointestnal toxicants like liver toxicants, cardiovascular and blood toxicants, and reproductive toxicants. "Chemical ranking systems rate many vaccine ingredients among the most hazardous substances" known, even in microscopic doses.

"Millions of children (and adults) are partaking in an enormous crude experiment, and no sincere, organized effort is being made to track the negative side effects or to determine the long-term consequences."

Dr. Bart Classen's epidemiological research found vaccines as the cause of 79% of insulin type I diabetes cases in children under 10. The sharp rise in numerous other diseases may also be linked with mass-immunizations. California's autism rate skyrocketed 1000% in the last 20 years. In the 1990s, MMR vaccine usage in Britain (for measles, mumps and rubella) occurred at the same time autism rose sharply. The January 2000 Journal of Adverse Drug Reactions reported that no adequate testing was done, so the vaccine never should have been licensed.

The Autism Society says: "Autism is a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life and is the result of a neurological disorder that affects the normal functioning of the brain...."

According to the CDC and National Vaccine Information Center, one in every 150 US children develop the disease. Tens of millions are affected worldwide, making it more common than pediatric cancer, incurable type 1 (juvenile-onset) diabetes and AIDS combined. In the early 1940s, prior to mass immunizations, autism was so rare that few doctors ever encountered it. Today it's a global pandemic.

Truth No. 7

Long-term vaccination reactions have been suppressed and ignored in spite of the alarming correlation between their use and the rise of autoimmune and other diseases. Vaccines aren't for protection. They're for profit and other nefarious purposes. Avoiding them is essential to protecting human health and well-being.

Myth No. 8: Vaccines are the only available disease prevention option

"Historically, homeopathy has proven many times...more effective than allopathic (conventional) medicine in the treatment and prevention of disease." During the 1849 US cholera outbreak, homeopathic hospitals documented a 3% death rate compared to 48 - 60% in conventional ones. It's as true today, and recent epidemiological studies show homeopathic remedies far superior to vaccines in preventing diseases. They're safe, effective, and toxin and side effect-free, yet most insurers won't cover them.

Truth No. 8

Alternative treatments and remedies have been safe and effective for generations, yet the medical establishment and governments attack and spurn them.

Myth No. 9: "Vaccinations are legally mandated and unavoidable..."

All states require them. However, laws vary by state, legal exemptions exist, and all states offer one or more of the following:

-- all states allow medical exemptions for persons susceptible to adverse reactions; parents can cite this for their children based on family history;

-- 48 states offer religious exemptions but may require membership in an established religious organization; "according to federal precedent, personal religious beliefs may be sufficient for a religious exemption regardless of which religious organization you belong to, or whether or not you belong to an organized religion at all;" in addition, the Supreme Court defined religion broadly for legal purposes; and

-- 17 states allow philosophical or personal exemptions.

All public and private schools must comply with federal and state vaccination laws and permit legal exemptions.

Truth No. 9

Some vaccines are mandated, but most, perhaps all, US citizens may use legal exemptions to avoid them. In a recent article, however, Phillips states:

"All non-medical exemptions in the US are ultimately provided conditionally. That is, states have the right to require immunization for everyone, legally exempt or not, during an (emergency) outbreak, other than (for) those" with medical exemptions.

Myth No. 10: Governments place public health concerns above all others

Vaccination history shows "documented instances of deceit portraying vaccines as mighty disease conquerors, when in fact vaccines have had little or no discernible impact - or have even delayed or reversed - pre-existing disease declines....Conflicts of interest are the norm in the vaccine industry." Government agencies like the FDA and CDC are stacked with corporate officials who return to high-paying industry jobs provided they place profit considerations over public health and safety.

In November 2000, concern over this and adverse reactions got the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) to pass a unanimous resolution at its 57th meeting calling for a moratorium on mandatory childhood vaccinations and for doctors to insist on "truly informed consent for (their) use...."

In October 1999, Dr. Bart Classen, founder and CEO of Classen Immunotherapies, told Congress:

"It is clear....that the government's immunization policies are driven by politics and not by science. I can give numerous examples where employees of the US Public Health Service....appear to be furthering their careers by acting as propaganda officers to support political agendas. In one case....employees of a foreign government, who were funded and working closely with the US Public Health Service, submitted false data to a major medical journal. The true data indicated the vaccine was dangerous; however, the false data" indicated no risk.

In addition, "four letters from the FDA/Public Health Service....clearly reveal(ed) that the anthrax vaccine" approved for US military personnel was done "without the manufacturer performing a single controlled clinical trial." They're essential to determine safety and effectiveness. Failure to conduct them proved devastating to the health and well-being of recipients and still does today. Besides, all vaccines are unsafe and some are extremely dangerous.

US military forces receive many or all of the following vaccinations:

-- three shots for hepatitis B;

-- two for hepatitis A;

-- annually for influenza so all military personnel will get Swine Flu shots;

-- all military personnel must have documented proof of receiving MMR vaccines for measles, mumps and rubella; those without them them get single doses;

-- two varicella (chicken pox) shots;

-- smallpox doses every ten years;

-- three for polio for adults never vaccinated; those fully vaccinated get a booster shot;

-- tetanus-diphtheria and pertussis vaccinations for personnel who haven't have them in the past 10 years;

-- tetanus every 10 years;

-- typhoid vaccinations in either oral or injectable forms;

-- a multiple dose series for anthrax;

-- yellow fever every 10 years in some cases;

-- three for rabies and later boosters;

-- tuberculosis screening and shots;

-- single pneumococcal doses;

-- meningococcal vaccinations every five years before deployment to certain regions; and

-- three Japanese encephalitis doses in some cases.

Multiple vaccinations for all US military personnel practically assures damage to their immune systems and severe health problems later on.

Truth No. 10

Public health officials approve dangerous vaccines on unsuspecting recipients and profit handsomely for their efforts.

Final Comments

All vaccines are biological weapons that weaken or destroy the human immune system. They often fail to protect against diseases they're designed to prevent and often cause them. The H1N1 vaccine is experimental, untested, toxic, extremely dangerous, and essential to avoid even if mandated.

In a December 1994 Medical Post article, Dr. Guylaine Lanctot said:

"The medical authorities keep lying. Vaccination has been a disaster on the immune system. It actually causes a lot of illnesses. We are actually changing our genetic code through vaccination....100 years from now we will know that the biggest crime against humanity was vaccines."

Dr. Viera Scheibner is internationally known as perhaps the leading expert on adverse vaccine reactions. Her analysis concluded that "there is no evidence whatsoever of the ability of vaccines to prevent any diseases. To the contrary, there is a great wealth of evidence that they cause serious side effects."

Nonetheless, immunization programs proliferate because the profit potential is enormous despite growing numbers of reputable scientific figures citing concerns.

Currently, over 200 new vaccines are being developed "for everything from birth control to (curbing) cocaine addiction." Around half of them are in clinical trials using human guinea pigs putting their health and safety on the line unwittingly.

New delivery systems are also being developed that include nasal sprays, mosquitoes, and genetically engineered fruits containing vaccine viruses. With every country in the world a potential buyer, health and safety considerations are suppressed for the sake of profits. Unless somehow this madness is stopped, the harm to our children and society will be catastrophic.

    Squalene: The Swine Flu Vaccine’s Dirty Little Secret Exposed http://cryptogon.com/?p=10257


    The U.S. government has contracts with several drug companies to develop and produce swine flu vaccines. At least two of those companies, Novartis and GlaxoSmithKline, are using an adjuvant in their H1N1 vaccines.

    The adjuvant? Squalene.

    A 2000 study published in the American Journal of Pathology demonstrated a single injection of the adjuvant squalene into rats triggered "chronic, immune-mediated joint-specific inflammation," also known as rheumatoid arthritis.

    The researchers concluded the study raised questions about the role of adjuvants in chronic inflammatory diseases.

    What Squalene Does to Humans

    Your immune system recognizes squalene as an oil molecule native to your body. It is found throughout your nervous system and brain. In fact, you can consume squalene in olive oil and not only will your immune system recognize it, you will also reap the benefits of its antioxidant properties.

    The difference between "good" and "bad" squalene is the route by which it enters your body. Injection is an abnormal route of entry which incites your immune system to attack all the squalene in your body, not just the vaccine adjuvant.

    Your immune system will attempt to destroy the molecule wherever it finds it, including in places where it occurs naturally, and where it is vital to the health of your nervous system.

    Gulf War veterans with Gulf War Syndrome (GWS) received anthrax vaccines which contained squalene. MF59 (the Novartis squalene adjuvant) was an unapproved ingredient in experimental anthrax vaccines and has since been linked to the devastating autoimmune diseases suffered by countless Gulf War vets.


    Government Swine Flu Advisor On Vaccine Maker Payroll
    July 27th, 2009

    Via: Infowars:

    Many people seem genuinely baffled that western governments are hyping the arrival of a swine flu pandemic as if it’s the greatest threat to humanity since the bubonic plague, despite the relatively low number of deaths from the virus, unaware that the pharmaceutical industry has been intimately joined at the hip with the state for decades

    I am personally strongly opposed to vaccines because I know from the horrific personal experience my sons and I have been put through as a result of our being very seriously harmed by orthodontic malpractice that the evidence supports was done to us as part of illegal and unethical research being done by the University of Alberta on unsuspecting patients in private practices in Alberta, that the government does not protect the public from harm nor give a damn if they are harmed and that health care has become all about money and not at all about the well-being of human beings.

    Further based on my own personal experience with vaccinations I strongly believe vaccines have caused and do cause serious harm that health professionals and the government then lie about and cover up.

    When I had my first child in Ontario in 1988, a son, I was told by the doctor that I had to bring him to have vaccinations and I did because I didn't know that I had the choice not to, and at that time I had read nothing about any negative effects or risks to babies being vaccinated, but had only been told that it was necessary to do to protect children. After my son, a very healthy, strong, active, bright and happy baby was given his first shot he stopped smiling and became less active and seemed unwell and then had what appeared to be a seizure while I was feeding him a bottle. I rushed him to the hospital and they did tests and told me that there was nothing wrong with him, but I knew that something was very wrong, I just didn't know what. Then when I took my son to the family doctor that had given him the first shot, who knew what had happened after the first shot, even though the hospital insisted that the shot had nothing to do with the change in my son, she/the family doctor told me that if I agreed to it she wasn't going to give my son any further vaccinations for Pertussis/Whooping Cough because she had recently read, in information only available to the medical community, about some children, primarily male children, having adverse reactions to the vaccination for Pertussis. I immediately agreed that I didn't want my son to have any further vaccinations for Pertussis if this was an option, that I believed it was the shot that had caused him to change and be unwell, so my son was not given further Pertussis vaccinations.

    After a period of time my son slowly returned to his healthy, happy, active self, with no apparent long term effects as far as we know at this point, and he has never suffered any negative effects from not having the shots. Later I began reading about vaccinations being linked to Autism, primarily in male children, and was horrified thinking about what could have happened to my son if he had continued with the shots. I believe my son would have suffered permanent damage that would have resulted in him being Autistic based on what I witnessed his reaction to the first shot was and based on everything I've read to date about what others have experienced. Based on my experience with my son I firmly believe that vaccinations harm some children and cause them to be Autistic, as many other parents also believe, and that the medical community and government are well aware of this fact, as is clear by the wonderful family doctor that had the integrity to act to protect my son from further harm in 1989,when many if not most would not have at that time,and when most would not now because of the information that is now out there available to the public about vaccines causing Autism, because health professionals choose not to be honest and choose to put money and drug companies first above patients and or because the government and their insurance companies tell them to lie to patients.

    The very sad and frustrating thing is that despite so much information being so easily available to us now, unlike when I had my son and before this time, people are still blindly trusting their doctors and the government and failing to think for themselves and research their and their children's health care options for themselves, even when I tell them what happened to my son and encourage them to research it for themselves before they take their baby to be vaccinated, which is not in the best interests of their children or their best interests or the best interests of all of us.

    I also find the government advertising vaccines and doing commercials pushing them like companies selling a product, even despite serious side effects and risks, like they pushed that HPV vaccine to young girls, to be seriously wrong and disgusting and that this is obvious evidence that it's become about money and control and pushing a companies products and not about the well-being of people as it should be.

    I agree that this H1N1 flu seemed to come out of nowhere, as if it was orchestrated...even the name seems preplanned and consistent with this virus being manufactured. Why wasn't it just another flu, at least for a period of time, why did it so quickly jump to the significant status it did and has? Is it that international monitoring and communication is better or was it intentionally manufactured and distributed...it from the beginning has seemed very odd to me,unlike any other situation involving a flu or illness, like it clearly has to others as this article demonstrates. And the predictions about how bad it will get and when it will hit and the number of casualties and should they close the schools, etc... has seemed artificial to me too, and inaccurate from what I've read...like it was planned but it hasn't gone as they planned.

    We all need to wake up and start paying close attention to what is going on and being concerned about where it's heading and willing to stand up and speak out and fight back.

    Glad to hear that your son recovered, thanks for sharing your story.

    My take on what is happening is very similar to yours. I used to think vaccinations were a good thing and that people who refused them were crazy, now I wonder how I could have been so ignorant as to accept on faith alone that shooting dead and weakened animal cells plus other toxic substances into my body or my kids bodies. I guess it is a case of "live and learn if you live long enough to learn".

    I find the constant stories in the media about the H1N1 vaccine being hard to get and that only limited amounts of it will be available to be seriously questionable, and again way in advance of when they should be actually reporting this problem and it should be a concern...like it's psychological manipulation trying to convince the public that if they get the chance to get the vaccine they will be lucky and should be grateful to suck them into running out and getting it. Like companies telling people in commercials that there is only a limited amount of a product available or that it will only be available for a short time to try and manipulate people to feel pressured to buy it right away, before they are even sure they want it.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guillain-B ... d_symptoms

    This condition linked above is known to be caused by flu vaccines and specifically the vaccine for swine flu...though "they" say that this risk is not the risk it once was the fact is that they won't know until AFTER it has been given to a large amount of people and there is time to see the results, but then they will never make the results public so the truth is we will never know what the risks are of the H1N1 vaccine because it is very unlikely the health community or government or company that makes it and gets rich off it will ever be honest with the public about it and fully report the truth. This new virus just surfaced in March of this year, how much could they possible know for sure about it and therefore about the vaccine for it after only a very short time? The public has been donating millions and millions of dollars each year to research the AIDS virus and so far nothing to help protect the public has been confirmed, but they come up with a vaccine for this new virus in only just a few months and know that it is safe and effective so quickly...this must be seriously questioned. They haven't even had time to properly and thoroughly research the H1N1 virus and where it came from yet,how could they have already come up with a safe and effective vaccine for it?

    Yes, it is unnerving to watch the cream of the public safety organizations deliver proclamations about the safety of vaccines and not offering so much as one study to back up their claims. The corporate media does not question their veracity. It is a psychopaths con game.

    Ahh, for the good old days when people, mostly children , were crippled or killed in the millions by such lovely plagues as small pox, diptheria, polio, etc. If only we could go back to those "Good old days."

    Education, communication, access to healthy food and the quality of living conditions and health care, if you should need it, has greatly improved since the days you have referred to...and for the record my tiny little grandmother had polio and survived it just fine and lived a very good and active life until the age of 96. And history has established that flu vaccines have caused more harm and death than the actual flu it was intended to protect against, and very often has been proven to be of no use protecting someone from getting the flu it was supposed to protect against or to be of any benefit...and that's only what the health community and government has admitted to, meaning it's very likely that these vaccines have caused much more harm than we know about. And it is a fact that the circumstances surrounding this flu and vaccine in particular call for very careful consideration before deciding whether or not to get this vaccine. Either you're a health care professional or someone who benefits from the public blindly obeying like obedient little sheep, or you're an obedient little sheep who thinks what he is told to think and wants everyone else to too. People have the RIGHT to be fully informed of ALL the facts before subjecting themselves to ANY risk, and to choose what they believe is best for them only after they have been given all the facts, and the fact is that the public is NOT being given all the facts, as "they" have admitted they don't even know all the facts. And where is the evidence that we are at risk any more than we ever are from any flu? I don't know anyone personally who has had or has the H1N1 flu...do any of you? Why are we being pressured to believe we are at risk when there isn't any evidence that we actually are...at least not yet anyway? And I encourage everyone to consider that just because a doctor tells you that they had the vaccine doesn't mean they actual have, and to remember that doctors get compensated by drug companies, etc... for pushing drugs, as I'm sure doctors will be told to do in the case of the H1N1 vaccine, including by Harper's government who will look stupid and seriously incompetent if the Canadian public chooses not to be vaccinated. It's everyone's right to decide what is best for them and I respect that everyone have this right as I expect others to respect my right to decide and do what is best for me...I just hope that people will think and carefully consider all the facts and educate themselves as much as possible before just blindly doing what they are told and before believing those that have ulterior motives for wanting people to not think for themselves and risk being vaccinated with a vaccine that has not been proven to be needed or properly tested or established to be safe or even effective.

    Did I miss your references to the studies that show that vaccines are safe?
    Did I miss your references to studies that show that vaccines are effective?

    Aahh if only we could go back to the good old days when everybody got there information from one controlled source and their was little if any controversy because all public information was vetted before being disseminated.

    The following comes from http://www.whale.to/v/phillips.html
    When my son was set to begin his routine vaccination series at age 2 months, I didn’t know there were any risks associated with immunizations. But the clinic's flyer contained a contradiction: my child’s chances of a serious adverse reaction to the DPT vaccine were one in 1750, while his chances of dying from pertussis were one in several million. When I pointed this out to the physician, he angrily disagreed, and stormed out of the room mumbling, "I guess I should read that sometime..." Soon thereafter I learned of a child who had been permanently disabled by a vaccine, so I decided to investigate for myself. My findings have so alarmed me that I feel compelled to share them; hence, this report.

    Health authorities credit vaccines for disease declines, and assure us of their safety and effectiveness. Yet these assumptions are directly contradicted by government statistics, published medical studies, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports, and the opinions of credible research scientists from around the world. In fact, infectious diseases declined steadily for decades prior to mass immunizations, doctors in the U.S. report thousands of serious vaccine reactions each year including hundreds of deaths and permanent disabilities, fully vaccinated populations have experienced epidemics, and researchers attribute dozens of chronic immunological and neurological diseases that have risen dramatically in recent decades to mass immunization campaigns.

    Decades of studies published in the world’s leading medical journals have documented vaccine failure and serious adverse vaccine events, including death. Dozens of books written by doctors, researchers, and independent investigators reveal serious flaws in immunization theory and practice. Yet, incredibly, most pediatricians and parents are unaware of these findings. This has begun to change in recent years, however, as a growing number of parents and healthcare providers around the world are becoming aware of the problems and questioning mass mandatory immunization. There is a growing international movement away from mass mandatory immunization. This report introduces some of the information that provides the basis for the movement.

    My point is not to tell anyone whether or not to vaccinate, but rather, with the utmost urgency, to point out some very good reasons why everyone should examine the facts before deciding whether or not to submit to the procedure. As a new parent, I was shocked to discover the absence of a legal mandate or professional ethic requiring pediatricians to be fully informed of the risks of vaccination, let alone to inform parents that their children risk death or permanent disability upon being vaccinated. I was equally dismayed to see first-hand the prevalence of physicians who are, if with the best of intentions, applying practices based on incomplete—and in some cases, outright mis—information.

    This report is only a brief introduction; your own further investigation is warranted and strongly recommended. You may discover that this is the only way to get an objective view, as the controversy is a highly emotional one.

    A word of caution: Many have found pediatricians unwilling or unable to discuss this subject calmly with an open mind. Perhaps this is because they have staked their personal identities and professional reputations on the presumed safety and effectiveness of vaccines, and because they are required by their profession to promote vaccination. But in any event, anecdotal reports suggest that most doctors have great difficulty acknowledging evidence of problems with vaccines. The first pediatrician I attempted to share my findings with yelled angrily at me when I calmly brought up the subject. The misconceptions have very deep roots.


    This was taken from http://www.whale.to/v/vran7.html .
    "Canada is a perfect test market for pharmaceutical companies testing new vaccines because there is no mandatory reporting of vaccine reactions in this country, and it is left up to the individual doctor's opinion whether a child's adverse reaction is vaccine related, and furthermore, there is no way to access government or pharmaceutical data bases for independent inquiries as to reactions that are being reported - so it's very easy to manipulate information and make sweeping statements that the 5 in 1 vaccine has been proven safe after 7 years of injection into Canadian children."

    "Furthermore, to the best of our knowledge the original trials did not monitor reactions in children beyond 72 hours (see attached pdf blurb), nor did they test the vaccine in children who have existing or evolving neurological disorders or other undiagnosed health problems."

    "There is no government (vaccine damage) compensation system in Canada, and impossible to win damages in the courts in this country. Only the province of Quebec (which often does its own thing) has a compensation plan that has turned away more than it has awarded. Only a handful of people have ever successfully gotten compensation in that province.
    Canada seems determined to deny vaccine injuries as a fact of life. Canada is also a convenient test ground for vaccines, and our children serve as the test population. The five in one DTaP,Polio & Hib vaccine (known here as Pentacel) was developed and tested here for years prior to it filtering out into the larger vaccine marketplace.
    Big Pharma loves Canada as the legal system has set an impossibly high bar, thus insuring that vaccine injury victims will not be awarded damages in the courts, which conveniently enables the government to maintain the myth that vaccine safety & injuries is a non-issue. As well, Health Canada (our drug oversight department) is cozy/cozy with the pharmaceutical industry. A recent book, written by a Health Canada whistle blower scientist titled "Corrupt to the Core" document this.
    In Canada, hope of any court awards or government compensation seems an impossible dream at this point in time. Without court awards, government won't budge, and without a reform of the rules governing personal injury cases, no court will ever rule in favour of a vaccine injury victim."

    The most important information contained in the article above is...

    How do health experts know 2009 won't be a repeat of the 1976 fiasco? Are there any guarantees the vaccine will be safe?

    The short answers to those questions, according to the experts, are "we don't know" and "no."

    I was sick as a dog for much of every winter until I discovered flu vacines. Since then I rarely get sick, and I'm in the best of health. I met friends in Tonga who were afraid to come home because their memories of Canada were of being sick with thw flu every winter. I told them about my experience with flu vacines and they came home, and have been flu free since 2003.
    If Vacines don't work, then where did all the small pox and polio go?
    I also had friends in school who got polio and were crippled for life. So your gramma's experience was sheer luck, and no source of advice for anyone else. Tell that to the millons who lost family members to the pre vacine plagues.
    Yes, we have the right to all the info, not just your selective luddite gossip.
