Vaccines, considered by many as one of the top-ten public health achievements of the 20th century, are “powerful medical interventions.” Vaccines are thought to work by priming the immune system to recognize and defend itself against the specific diseases targeted by the vaccines. However, immunologists admit that they have little understanding of exactly how vaccines activate the immune system.
The following pediatrician’s commentary attacking vaccine religious exemptions was published by Raleigh’s News & Observer on February 24, 2012. As the N&O failed to publish my response, I’m publishing it here, where truth is welcome, following the pediatrician’s article immediately below.
Research shows that colostrum may be nature's safe and healthy alternative to flu vaccines.
Headlines were recently made announcing that the French government plans to make 11 vaccines compulsory for children, adding to the three-shot combination already mandatory (diphtheria, tetanus, and polio). Under the new jurisdiction, parents would be forced to follow the vaccination schedule.
If what we're doing may contribute to the new normal of childhood chronic illness, then here are 7 bold and brave ways to keep baby safe.
The Premiere of “Man Made Epidemic” on Saturday 25th of June in London was a huge success.
It's illegal for children to vote. It's illegal for children to choose to drink alcohol. It's illegal for children to drive. It's illegal for children to give consent for medical procedures. Yet, New York is planning to let children give consent for vaccinations, a potentially life-changing or destroying procedure, without parental consent?
With billions of dollars in annual revenue at stake, vaccine makers are pushing meningitis vaccine mandates across the country. Vaccine issues are always complex, but advocates of the meningitis mandate should consider some simple math.
Phenol is hazardous when comes into contact with the skin or eyes or is ingested or inhaled. The safety record of injected phenol is neither convincing nor comforting.
A Newsweek propaganda piece absurdly lies that vaccination entails no health risks -- and that anyone who knows better has no "faith in science"
While the Polio Global Eradication Initiative (PGEI), founded in 1988, declares itself successful in nearly eradicating wild-type polio in nations like India, vaccine-induced polio paralysis cases far outnumber those the vaccines were intended to prevent. It is believed that vaccines produce at least 300% more cases of polio than those existing in the wild, indicating that a natural problem has been transformed into a manmade one.
Flu vaccines, according to the best scientific evidence available today, will only work against 10% of the circulating viruses that cause the symptoms of seasonal epidemic influenza. So, do the theoretical benefits really outweigh the known harms?
What if vaccines have never been soundly confirmed to be safe and effective? What if the CDC, vaccine manufacturers and advocates knew of these discrepancies and contradictions, yet intentionally ignored them against the public interests?
The Japanese are regarded as some of the healthiest, longest living people on Earth. Is it a coincidence they also happen to be cautious regarding vaccines?
The Bill & Melinda Gates foundation has been pouring millions of dollars into projects aimed at supporting the health of folks in developing countries. But where is all the money actually going? Developing water purification systems? Nutritional support aimed at immune optimization? Providing shelter and medical facilities for the homeless? Not even close.
Unless we challenge policies refusing religious vaccine exemptions, we will lose our rights as citizens. Take action now.
Unbeknownst to most doctors, the polio-vaccine history involves a massive public health service makeover during an era when a live, deadly strain of poliovirus infected the Salk polio vaccines, and paralyzed hundreds of children and their contacts. These were the vaccines that were supposedly responsible for the decline in polio from 1955 to 1961! But there is a more sinister reason for the “decline” in polio during those years; in 1955, a very creative re-definition of poliovirus infections wa
Clinton has never been one to shy away from big corporate money to serve as the lifeblood of her campaign momentum. Despite Clinton's proclamation that she's proud to call the pharmaceutical industry her enemy, her campaign has led the pack receiving the most pharmaceutical, corporate and individual contributions.
Cover-ups and lies: Vaccine injury has been a serious problem since the very beginning.
The medical establishment got it all wrong: it is not vaccine-exempt children who endanger us all, it is the effects of prolonged mass-vaccination campaigns that have done so.
Scientists reveal how a hyperactivated immune system can unleash disease,
In case you’ve been living in an underground grotto, the proposed Bill (CA2109) would require parents to get an MD’s signature to allow parents to sign the vaccine exemption form, a form which has been in use for the past century in California. Does that sound bizarre? The MD signature is required before the citizens can sign their own name.
Vaccines are not safe or effective for everyone because we are not all the same and we do not all respond the same way to pharmaceutical products. Without knowing if the odds are in your favor, almost no medical condition qualifies for exemption.
Let's use our frontal lobes to revisit rhetoric we have been forced to accept, to examine the evidence base disproving the very premise of vaccination, and which offends our Paleo sensibilities.
