Results for Vaccine-induced Toxicity

"Herd Immunity"? A Dishonest Marketing Gimmick

As a country and a society, we’ve never been anywhere close to “herd immunity” through vaccination, but where are all the epidemics? That doesn’t keep vaccine makers from using herd immunity as a weapon to guilt and scare parents. Why are we allowing “mythology to trump science”?

'Police State' Registry System Being Set Up to Track Your Vaccination Status

ACTION ALERT: Oppose Unconstitutional State Forced Vaccine Tracking of Your Family - OPPOSE SB 1680 and HB 1045 (FL)

Your government is watching and tracking your decisions – even saying "No" to vaccines.

The Centers for Disease Control has been quietly rolling out a nationwide program called the Immunization Information Systems (IIS), registering your vaccine information into a database. [1] This effort has been run in parallel with state vaccine registry implementations.

What is the intention of such programs?

My colleague Leslie Manookian, writer and director of the movie The Greater Good, wrote in a recent article, the "CDC has openly stated that vaccine registries are a tool to identify areas of 'undervaccination' so that they can be 'addressed' and brought into 'compliance.'" [2]

7 Most Disgusting Ingredients Used To Make Vaccines

7 Most Disgusting Ingredients Used To Make Vaccines

As you read this list, understand cell lines and vaccines do become contaminated. This is often hidden under the term "adventitious agents."

Disgusting Ingredient #1: Cells From Aborted Fetus

Aborted fetal cells, listed on vaccine package inserts as "Human Fetal Diploid Cells." Two aborted fetal cell lines, WI-38 and MRC-5, have been grown under laboratory conditions since the 1960s.

The cells are used to grow viruses used which are then collected from the cell cultures and processed further to produce the vaccine itself.

Terms to Investigate: PERC6, MRC5, WI-38, HEK-293

8 Damn Good Reasons Not to Get the Flu Shot

Every year the mainstream media war drum beats for you to get vaccinated against the flu. They rarely discuss anything but the benefits of the vaccine

Why?

Maybe it is because many people are already skeptical about the flu vaccine.

8 More Reasons I Haven’t Vaccinated My Daughter

8 More Reasons I Haven't Vaccinated My Daughter

Last week, my first blog on this very sensitive topic called "8 Reasons I Haven't Vaccinated my Daughter" went viral on MindBodyGreen, being shared almost 50,000 times in the first week. There has been such an outpouring of support from all over the world that has been very humbling. Given the imminent direction vaccination policy in going, it seems like a good time to speak up.

The original article I wrote had 15 reasons, but after editing it was turned into eight. Here are eight more that didn't make the cut, that I thought GreenMedInfo readers might like.

1.  I can't trust vaccine studies to be true.

We all love studies, right? Let's start off with one that I believe may be the most important study of all. This gem caught my attention because it examined the "undue industry influence that distorts healthcare research, strategy, expenditure and practice." The conclusion reads, "to serve its interests, the industry masterfully influences evidence-base production, evidence synthesis, understanding of harms issues, cost-effectiveness evaluations, clinical practice guidelines and healthcare professional education and also exerts direct influences on professional decisions and health consumers."

The key word there is masterfully, because it wouldn't be masterful if everyone knew it was going on. The fact that marketing is spun to be made to look like pure science is the true "mastery".

Any one of these factors in isolation might be enough to make anyone doubt whose interests are being served by pro-vaccine research, but all together and working synergistically? Given the scope of this conclusion, it seems unlikely that a doctor or hospital will provide the most objective opinion, given their exposure to the 'direct influences' from pharmaceutical companies that have paid over $11bn in fines in the last three years for criminal wrongdoing.

2.  I believe the benefits of vaccines have been exaggerated.

I already hear you saying, "But James, how can you say that about vaccines? We all know that vaccines have saved millions of lives." Well, when you talk about saving lives, you are talking about reducing mortality. And when we look at the mortality presumably impacted by vaccines, we see a different picture than we have been told is true.  There is no doubt that sanitation, nutrition and socioeconomic factors played a much greater role in reducing mortality from communicable diseases than vaccines.

Prime example: measles. Mortality reduced 99.5% before the vaccine was introduced in 1963. Notice also, scarlet fever follows the same pattern of decline without the use of a vaccine ever. Even polio deaths were reduced 47% in the USA and 55% in the UK before the first vaccine was introduced, and were falling. How far could we have gone without vaccines? We will never know.

Since my article has come out, Dr. Suzanne Humpries has written a very well thought out piece on this exact topic, you can find it here. I challenge anyone to read that and still be 100% pro-vaccine.

A Mom's View of Vaccinations: The Flame That Fuels The Debate

A Mom's View of Vaccinations: The Flame That Fuels The Debate

"You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist." ~Friedrich Nietzsche

To vaccinate or not to vaccinate that is the heated debate. Regardless of what position you hold, the vaccination topic carries weighted emotions like anger, fear, intolerance, and especially the need to be right.

At the end of the day, what should be a personal, educated choice becomes controversial fodder for others to judge and vilify, regardless of which side they take. It's a hot topic that doesn't seem to lose steam.

I know because I align with the smaller percentage of those who choose not to inoculate now. Let me clarify that statement. Fourteen years ago, I hesitatingly gave my kids some vaccinations before my inner voice kicked in and before learning the hard way.

This was not a flippant decision or one reflecting negligence or lack of concern for others in the population, as some people might accuse. I based my withdrawal from the vaccine schedule on:

  • extensive research;
  • discussions with various pediatricians and medical professionals;
  • conversations with other parents;
  • countless accounts of children who were irrevocably altered after compliance with government-mandated vaccine dosages;
  • and, ultimately, my own heart-knowing of what genuinely feels true.

I also based my decision on the drastic change I witnessed in my then-infant son.  After he got vaccinated, he cried desperately the night he received it in a way that was uncharacteristic of my sweet baby. He seemed to be in terrible, unusual pain. Within months, his healthy breathing patterns became labored and raspy.

To confuse matters, his pediatrician did not detect anything wrong! We learned about the severity of his symptoms after I boldly—and apprehensively—took him to a chiropractor instead of his pediatrician, when he developed a fever several months later. It was there that we discovered that his adrenals were severely taxed—an issue that could have eventually impacted his kidneys. With the radical decision not to go to a traditional "doctor," we curtailed what could have been another vaccine statistic, though I didn't realize that at the time.

It was not until we tested him for allergies years later that I put two and two together. The testing disclosed that one source of his adrenal overload stemmed from exposure to egg albumen, an ingredient often found in the vaccine mix. Egg albumen doesn't even account for the rest of the toxic cocktail injected into his system.

With each person's genetic composition being so different, it is completely plausible that even one external stimulus can negatively interact with DNA and alter its normal design (the field of epigenetics is making groundbreaking discoveries in this area). Will I ever be able to prove this connection? Probably not. But as a mother, I know it in my gut. And sometimes that's all we moms have got to go on.

It was then and there that I made the commitment to support my family's well-beingness and not operate from the fear of illness. Thus, the flame ignited.

"Our lives improve only when we take chances and the first and most difficult risk we can take is to be honest with ourselves." ~Walter Anderson

It has not always been an easy path to walk. Many times I have questioned my decision, usually based on unfounded insecurities. Yet I consistently revisited the facts that speak loudly for themselves. I align with people, often through Holistic Moms Network, who share mutual understanding. We support each other. Then I am undeterred.

In writing this post, I reached out to a number of health practitioners to lend their professional angle and medical credibility to the topic. Sadly—but not surprisingly—they refused to put their position on vaccinations in writing. Their unwillingness speaks volumes, doesn't it?

The reason for abstaining? Some would not say. Others did—the crackdown on their medical practice once Big Pharma discovers their unorthodox views.

Their reasoning is not unfounded. One doctor boldly showed her patient, who happens to be a friend of mine, a letter from the insurance company stating that they were withholding necessary coverage and funds due to the percentage of unvaccinated patients in her practice.

For a country boasting a constitutional right to free speech, it sure does create a deafening silence when it comes to vaccines. Evidently, proclaiming a more holistic practice that doesn't advocate vaccines carries its own implications. It is not the first time that I've heard of doctors going "undercover" in their alternative approach, despite mounting evidence that the drug-centered route may not be helping—and in fact, may be harming.

"Scientific medicine has taken credit it does not deserve for some advances in health. Most people believe that victory over the infectious diseases of the last century came with the invention of immunizations. In fact, cholera, typhoid, tetanus, diptheria, and whooping cough, etc., were in decline before vaccines for them became available – the result of better methods of sanitation, sewage disposal, and distribution of food and water." ~ Dr. Andrew Weil, Health and Healing

Did you know that in 2011 the U.S. Supreme Court passed legislation that impedes those suffering from vaccine injury from receiving compensation from pharmaceutical companies for their mounting medical expenses?

Essentially we can sue Dunkin Donuts for brewing scalding coffee that burned someone who spilled it on themselves. But those whose lives have radically changed due to injury from a required shot can not seek disability payments from the industry that caused it?

There is something eerily wrong with this picture. I'm not one to rant about conspiracy theories, but the information does leave room to wonder.

"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident." ~ Arthur Schopenhauer

If you have ever been privy to a rational discussion surrounding vaccinations, you will know that it rapidly turns heated, then downright accusatory, quickly morphing into pulling-hair-out hen fights. It isn't pretty.

A recent Facebook post by Lissa Rankin, M.D. is a good case in point. The author of Mind Over Medicine struck the match by revealing that she vaccinated her daughter. She wanted to know where people were holding regarding the controversial topic, since 26 percent of the students in her daughter's school chose not to vaccinate.

Opinions waxed strong in the ensuing comments, even to the extent of being mildly contentious. Accusations and references to scientific studies were hurled and refuted. No one actually heard the other voice. And the thread died down as quickly as it started, like a flame extinguished.

Dr. Rankin's resulting article appeared the next day on Mind, Body, Green, where she explained (defended?) her choice to vaccinate and also expressed, "We should be able to hold differing opinions without getting personal or mean." She concluded her eight guidelines for an open and healthy discussion with the quip: "In short, everyone play nice in the sandbox, please."

So why can't we manage to play in the sandbox without throwing the sand?

What is at the heart of this often vicious debate, this unwillingness by professionals to stand out and speak about what they know?

In my humble opinion, there are two major underlying factors pulling the strings: misinformation and fear. Both are equally compelling forces that—when fed—lead to a "lynch-mob" mentality, but can also lead to paralysis. This is hardly an exaggeration.

"Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship...the Constitution of this Republic should make special provisions for medical freedom as well as religious freedom." ~ attributed to Benjamin Rush, M.D., Signer of the Declaration of Independence

If you are not familiar with the body's physiological response to fear, it is called "fight or flight." The effect of fight or flight actually stresses the body to the extent that it is potentially immobilized. Neurologist Dr. Robert Scaer discusses the "fight, flight, or freeze" response in depth.

That is how fear becomes a veritable weapon for controlling mass consciousness. It has historically proven true time and time again—look at any dictator's rise to power. It can be used to subdue a nation. Unfortunately, it is working all too well today.

The danger of submitting to fears is that we lose our ability to question, as well as to voice our differing understandings. Aren't those the steps to tyranny?

Several friends of mine asked their pediatricians about the current vaccine protocol as recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC)—now up to a whopping 49 doses of 14 vaccines by the time the child is six years old. Mind you, my friends merely wished to sift through the confusing onslaught of contradicting information. The pediatricians summarily dismissed them from their practices. This really happened!

A Mother’s Decision: The First Shot, Hepatitis B

A Mother's Decision: The First Shot, Hepatitis B

The day has come and your little bundle is here. The wonder of it is overwhelming: this human grew out of two cells, inside you, and despite those last couple of days feeling like a year each, all of this happened in 9 months, without your doing much but standing by. If you are in a hospital, your baby is likely to be snatched away from you upon entry into the world, and subjected to all manner of empirical interventions aimed at damage control for all of his weaknesses and lurking dysfunctions – antibiotics in his eyes, vitamin K in his blood, a good scrubbing with some 1, 4-dioxane and formaldehyde-containing baby wash, and, since 1991, the Hepatitis B vaccine.

A New Flu Season of Pain, Profit and Politics

A New Flu Season of Pain, Profit and Politics

According to all official health reports, we are now fully in flu season.  It is that time of year when public health officials, physicians pediatricians and pharmacists warn that everyone over 6 months of age should protect themselves and get vaccinated. Most Americans, believing the government's propaganda about the safety and benefits of the flu vaccine, are joining the inoculation lines without pausing to consider the accuracy and legitimacy of health officials' and pediatrician claims.

The official government figure for the annual number of deaths caused by influenza infection remains at 36,000. Why this figure has not changed during the course of a decade is anyone's guess. However,  there can between 150 and 200 different infectious pathogens—adenovirus, rhinovirus, parainfluenza, the very common coronavirus and, of course, pneumonia—that produce flu-like symptoms.  For example, how many people have heard of bocavirus, which is responsible for bronchitis and pneumonia in young children, or metapneumovirus, responsible for more than 5 percent of all flu-related illnesses? This is true during every flu season and it will be no different for the 2013-2014 season.  

If we take the combined figure of flu and pneumonia deaths for the period of 2001, and add a bit of spin to the figures, we are left believing that 62,034 people died from influenza. The actual figures determined by Peter Doshi, then at Harvard University, are 61,777 died from pneumonia and only 257 from flu. Even more amazing, among those 257 cases only 18 were confirmed positive for influenza.

A CBS Investigative Report, published in October 2012, exemplifies the unreliable and perhaps intentionally deceptive misinformation campaign steered by the US government health agencies every flu season . After the CDC refused to honor CBS's Freedom of Information request to receive flu infection data by individual state, the network undertook an independent investigation across all fifty states to get their infectious disease statistics. The final report contradicts dramatically the CDC's public relations blitz. For example, in California, among the approximate 13,000 flu-like cases, 86 percent tested negative for any flu strain. In Florida, out of 8,853 cases, 83 percent were negative. In Georgia and Alaska, only 2.4 percent and 1 percent respectively tested positive for flu virus among all reported flu-like cases. If the infection-rate ratios obtained by CBS are accurate, the CDC's figures are significantly reduced and flu season severity is overstated dramatically.

In addition to false advertising by the government and America media, over recent years, we have witnessed an increase in "scientific" studies framed as commercials and public relations spin to promote vaccine efficacy. A highly flawed medical trial conducted by a vaccine maker has a greater chance of being published in a prestigious medical journal than scientifically sound research conducted by an independent scientist or university without conflict of interests with government and private industries.  When we question why this is  the case, the deduction is that such research is more often than not promotional spin to support the financial interests of the corporate party. This is particularly true of industry and government-funded vaccine trials with the sole intention to influence the nation's health policy makers and physicians, and to relieve doubts concerning vaccine efficacy and safety.  The nation's health agencies then rely upon these fabrications to convince the healthcare community and citizens about the importance of vaccination and the dangers of contracting an infectious disease.  And this scenario is particularly flagrant in studies promoting flu vaccine propaganda.

There is a single question that needs to be answered: what is the actual gold standard proof to claim that the flu vaccine is efficacious for any given individual?  The question whether or not the flu vaccine is safe becomes secondary if the vaccine's efficacy is negligible or useless. In that case, there would be no convincing scientific rationale for administering the vaccine in the first place. During the past four years, since the hype and subsequent fizzle of the 2008 H1N1 scare, we have done an extensive review of the scientific literature and analysis of flu vaccination, and the results are startling.

In an interview with Dr. Thomas Jefferson, coordinator for the Cochrane Vaccine Field in Rome, Italy, he stated that in 2009 he conducted a thorough review of 217 published studies on flu vaccines and found only 5% reliable. In other words, 95% of published flu vaccine studies are flawed and their conclusions should be dismissed. This is not a great surprise; even CDC officials were  forced to confess that "influenza vaccines are still among the least effective immunizing agents available, and this seems to be particularly true for elderly recipients."[1] Dr. Anthony Morris, a distinguished virologist and a former Chief Vaccine Office at the FDA, found "there is no evidence that any influenza vaccine thus far developed is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza.' Dr. Morris stated, "The producers of these vaccines know they are worthless, but they go on selling them anyway."[2]

In 2006, Dr. Peter Doshi  published a devastating study in the British Medical Journal that systematically unveils the flawed predictive science used to publicize our health agencies' influenza statistics and mortality rates. His analysis shook up enough health authorities to warrant twelve scientists from the CDC and National Institutes of Health to unsuccessfully challenge him. Now at John Hopkins, Doshi continues his analysis of a century's worth of influenza mortality statistics and government manipulation of influenza data, such as the annual figure of 36,000 influenza deaths we hear and read repeatedly.[3] Although this magical number was for all practical purposes alchemically conjured via mathematical modeling back in 2003, it continues to be the most holy number in the CDC's PR vocabulary every flu season. Doshi draws the conclusion, published in the American Journal of Public Health, that commercial interests are playing the role of science in both industry and government.[4]

When we review the FDA's and CDC's flawed methodology for promulgating the myth that 36,000 Americans die annually from flu infections, we will see that over 90 percent of these mortalities are a result of pneumonia and other infections, not the influenza virus. On the CDC's website, the agency makes reference that deaths caused by influenza and pneumonia are grouped together

In a more recent 2013 report published in the British Medical Journal, Doshi had this to say about flu vaccinations: "The vaccine may be less beneficial and less safe than has been claimed, and the threat of influenza seems to be overstated." He notes that a study published by an Australian team found that "one in every 110 children under the age of five had convulsions following vaccinations in 2009 for HINI influenza."[5]  Separate independent studies conducted in the UK, Finland and Sweden concur that the flu vaccine directly contributed to the rise in cases of narcolepsy following receipt of GlaxoSmithKline's Pandemrix vaccine. The conclusion is that the vaccine triggered an immune reaction against the children's sleep center cells.[6]

A Pox on the CDC’s Vaccination Agenda: The Rise of Herpes Zoster (Shingles)

A new systematic review published in PLoS titled, "Herpes Zoster Risk Reduction through Exposure to Chickenpox Patients: A Systematic Multidiscplinary Review," confirms that the widespread adoption of  chickenpox vaccine over the past 30 years, which has resulted in a decline in chickenpox cases associated with infection from the wild-circulating virus, has lead to a concerning increase in the incidents of herpes zoster (shingles), a far more serious expression of chickenpox virus (varicella zoster) infection.

A Shot Never Worth Taking: The Flu Vaccine

Originally published on The International Medical Council on Vaccination

Deep into my 6th year of researching and investigating the damning science that condemns vaccine efficacy and safety – yes, all of them – I am beginning to turn my attention more to the societal memes and the individual belief systems that protect and perpetuate tragically flawed and unacceptably dangerous collective behaviors.

The information is OUT THERE, brilliant scientists, physicians, and researchers without financial ties and agendas have weighed in and presented their concerns about vaccine safety and efficacy, however, the average citizen resists and clings to a hyper-simplified, seemingly "safe" stance.

"Well, I'm not against vaccines, I mean, they've done a lot. I'm sure there are some risks, but they're extremely rare."

I understand, now, that, my collection of PubMed articles substantiating concerns about inefficacy, neurological, autoimmune, and fatal risks of these poorly conceived and anachronistically relevant immune modulators is not meaningful to someone who is not interested. The questions raised by this information are not provocative to someone who needs, above all, to believe that the government, the CDC, and doctors mean well, are doing their due diligence, and that they are holding themselves to a basic standard of ethical delivery of healthcare. They are not meaningful to someone who needs to outsource their power.

Instead of debating the science, what it may take to change to bring awareness to this egregious misuse of medical authority is, one of two, non-scientific, anecdotal exposures:

1. They see it doesn't work, and may even cause illness
I have several pediatricians as patients. Unprovoked, all of these women have confessed to me that they have observed increased virulence in their vaccinated populations. It is this clinical experience that has given them pause about the heavy-handed mandate coming down from the CDC.


"Oh!" I say, "Have you read the studies that suggest increased risk of infection in the vaccinated population? There's THAT ONE where they actually used a saline placebo in 115 children and found that those vaccinated had a 4.4 times increased rate of non-flu infection? Or how about that CANADIAN ONE where they looked at 4 observational studies and found that 2008-2009 H1N1 vaccination was associated with a1.4 to 2.5 increased risk of actually contracting said virus?"

2.They know someone harmed
It is basic human psychology that what is out over there is irrelevant at best, and threatening at worst. What is near and familiar is what is true. Few of us seek to bridge gaps between what we are surrounded by and what may be out there to learn. The difficulty of appreciating the scale of harm brought to the population by vaccination practice is related to the insidious nature of immune and neurologic insult.

The propaganda surrounding this CDC and government-endorsed practice is so thick that doctors treating this young man were blind to even the most obvious of causative insults. If doctors cannot appreciate a documented adverse event that occurs within 24 hours, you cannot expect the system to acknowledge more complex disturbances to the immune system and neuorologic development that will land you and your loved ones on medications and in therapies for life. And, remember, that this family cannot sue the physician who pushed the needle or the pharmaceutical company who created the lethal product.

I think about the Cliff's Notes version, a distillation of why the flu vaccine is evidence that our government and regulatory bodies have forgotten us, and are following an objective that may leave you lying dead on the side of the road. I know that few of you will read the papers that I have read, attend lectures, seminars, and dialogue with concerned experts. If nothing else, digest these important points, and then wait until this issue gets close enough to you to change your mind on it...hopefully before it's too late.

•It's not indicated: I'm sure you don't know a single person who has died of the flu, and if you think you do, I can almost guarantee you that the diagnosis was not confirmed in a way that ruled out the 150-200 infectious pathogens that cause flu-like syndromes, none of which would be "covered" by the vaccine. Despite the astronomical figures the CDC flashes before us of "flu deaths", there were 18 (yes, 1-8) confirmed in 2001, for example. Access to these figures is suspiciously concealed, but in the end, forget the stats, and use some common sense to see the fear mongering and sales marketing for what it is.

•It doesn't work: The Cochrane Database – an objective, gold-standard assessment of available evidence has plainly stated, in TWO STUDIES, that there is no data to support efficacy in children under two, and in adults. Even the former Chief Vaccine Officer at the FDA states: "there is no evidence that any influenza vaccine thus far developed is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza." Liking the idea of being protected from the flu does not equate to being protected from the flu. That's essentially what your vaccine-promoting doctor (or pharmacist) is engaging in – promoting an idea.
