Are vaccines causing more diseases than they cure?

Are vaccines causing more diseases than they cure?

I had my immunization shots as a child, so I didn’t think too much to have my own child immunized shortly after birth and at her following doctor’s appointments.

Dionne's first shots

Dionne’s first shots

At our six-month check up, I wanted to re-read the information pamphlet to see what shots she had to have. When I got home I began to research some of the medicines, and 3 hours later I stepped away from my computer scared and overwhelmed at all of the commotion and controversy behind the medicines that are suppose to keep our children healthy and safe from disease.

I could not get past the claims of unsafe ingredients, drug patent owners that sit on the board of the CDC, and side affects that are far more dangerous that the original disease!

One of the ingredients that I learned was in the HepB and DTap vaccine was aluminum.  Aluminum is a heavy metal that is used as an adjuvant, a substance that boosts the vaccine’s efficacy and causes a greater immune response. According to Vaxtruth.org, aluminum is a neurotoxin that damages the immune system.

They state that there is aluminum in seven of vaccines listed on recommended schedule for children.  For a list of vaccine ingredients part 1 (click here) & part 2 (click here)

Further research on the FDA’s website (click here) shows the FDA conducted a study and found that the maximum amount of aluminum an infant could be exposed to over the first year of life would be 4.225 milligrams (mg), based on the recommended schedule of vaccines.

Federal Regulations for biological products (including vaccines) limit the amount of aluminum in the recommended individual dose of biological products, including vaccines, to not more than 0.85-1.25 mg. For example, the amount of aluminum in the hepatitis B vaccine given at birth is 0.25 mg.

The most disturbing of all the information I read was accusations that vaccines cause autism. The drug MMR, a vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella (also known as German measles) is being listed as the culprit in causing autism among our youth.

some medical research cause controversy linking rise in autism with rise in dangerous vaccines.

some medical research cause controversy linking rise in autism with rise in dangerous vaccines.

This theory has been disputed, and some doctors who have published studies have lost their medical license behind this controversy. Every mom has to decide what information to rely on to make informed decisions for their child’s health.

I came across this video that I wanted to share with everyone.  I hope it helps pose the question of what exactly are we giving our children, and how do we keep a handle on the amounts of venom we offer them for the sake of the herd immunity theory.

    This is a link to a list of approximately 150 scientists and physicians who have serious concerns about vaccine safety.

    http://www.greatergoodmovie.org/news-views/doctors-and-scientists-with-concerns-about-vaccines/

    There are over 200 independent studies done by well-credentialed experts that raise serious concerns about vaccine side effects shown on The Greater Good website

    http://www.greatergoodmovie.org/learn-more/science/.

    If you are a worried parent, you are not alone. If you or your child has been vaccine-injured, you are not alone.

      Only 150 scientists world wide, some of them extremely problematic (like Mayer Eisenstein, subject to numerous malpractice suits for babies dying). That’s not very good evidence.
      There are a lot more than 200 studies looking at vaccine safety. There are thousands. They highlight the safety problems, and conclude clearly: vaccines are very, very safe, and the risks of not vaccinating much higher than the risks of vaccinating.
      You can find many of those studies in the CDC’s resource library, at: http://www.cdc.gov/vaccinesafety/library/index.html

        I think it (150 scientists) actually is a lot when you consider the treatment that any practitioner who questions vaccine safety or efficacy will face. To whit, one of the researchers who called in to question the narcolepsy and H1N1 flu vaccine, Pandemrix, actually mentioned being afraid to bring this to public attention for fear of being “Wakefielded.”
        Many of the “thousands” of studies you mention are poorly done (the Madsen Thorsen study that supposedly proves thimerosal not causal in terms of autism being among the worst), and, Dorit, these are epidemiological studies, NOT physiological studies. We need more physiological studies looking at bio- markers to declare vaccines truly ‘safe’ (not just ore-clinical studies that don’t look at many bio-markers).

        No we don’t, the IOM ruled in 2001, that the link was a biologic plausibility. In other words,the IOM ruled that
        the biologic evidence. Is, biologically plausible.

      • Joe

        Then in 2004,the IOM was told, by the CDC. To pay, very little attention, to the biological evidence,and to put all of their confidence, in the large population based studies!

        The House Appropriations Committee,was under fire by
        the parents, and some decent Congressman and research scientist. They asked, the NIH, to evaluate the science, that the CDC had. On vaccines, as a cause for Autism,the NIH passed that political hot potato. To the, NIEHS that’s, the environmental side, of the NIH. The NIEHS evaluation, it had revealed, why the CDC. Wanted the IOM, to put all their confidence in the large population studies. And not any of the already proven biologically plausible studies.

        It appears, that The NIEHS evaluation, revealed that all the large population based VSD studies, were according to the NIEHS scientist. Riddled, full of design flaws, rendering them according, to the NIEHS. En-effect useless! She also, evaluated the Denmark studies,and found them worse than
        useless. Decades ago, the President of the US. GW tried to seal the VSD forever, from the public. Now we know why,
        they were useless and worse than useless. This is short, I will put a more in depth, post on this. Next.

        Depends on your definition of “scientist.” A pediatrician who has never published original research in a high impact, peer-reviewed journal is a poor substitute for “scientist.” A better question might be “how many bona fide, published immunologists, pediatric neurologists, and epidemiologists” are on Dachel’s list.

    • Julie Blackwelder

      Anne, Thank you so very much for taking the time to post on discussions like this. Parents are subjected to much misinformation and some of the accurate information is quite technical and confusing. One point I think that needs to be added to almost every response is that absence of proof is NOT proof of absence.

      The FDA has numerous times approved medications that were later determined to be dangerous and very damaging, even causing deaths. Confidence in government agencies, which are supposed to protect us, has been undermined because we can now share online our experiences with their fallibility and incompetence. It does not seem to me to be unrealistic to expect most educated parents to be cautious with ALL medications, not just vaccines.

      Again, I remind all of those who seem to be so confident in their certitude and claim that there is no doubt that all vaccines are totally safe, to remember that absence of proof is not proof of absence. Some vaccines may be causing some cases of autism and related issues in some children and the % may be such that not vaccinating in some cases is the wiser and safer choice.

        I agree, parents are subjected to a lot of misinformation. For example, there are numerous people willing to repeat the debunked claim that vaccines cause autism and sow doubt.

      • Laura Condon

        Actually Dorit, vaccines DO cause regressive autism. Thousands and thousands of families know it. They have known it for decades. Vaccine makers know it. Government health officials know it. Doctors know it. You and I know it. Were it not true you would be parading around children who are totally unvaccinated and still regressed into autism. Unvaccinated children do NOT develop regressive autism.

        The scam of vaccine safety is one of the most cruelest evils. Innocent, healthy babies have had their health and their lives taken from them by those whose lust for vaccine sales profits knows no bounds. I do not know how you sleep at night.

      • Dorit Reiss

        Parents raised the claim, and scientists looked. They looked in study after study. In multiple countries, by multiple different teams. Through multiple hypotheses. No connection was found.

        When scientists looked again, and again and again, to the tune of hundreds of thousands of children and millions of research dollars, at some point you have to accept the fact: there is no link.

        Not vaccinating would not prevent autism. It would just leave the child exposed to dangerous diseases, diseases that can harm and kill her. Children deserve better:

        The cost of anti-vaccine misinformation is the return of outbreaks. The unvaccinated children pay the highest price, because the rates of preventable diseases are higher among them: http://www.immunize.org/catg.d/p2069.pdf. There is no benefit to the movement: vaccines do not cause autism, allergies, SIDS, or all the other things the movement claims – let me know if you want me to post the long list of studies showing that.

      • Dorit Reiss

        And to give one anecdote – Kim Stigliano’s youngest child is autistic although she’s unvaccinated. I’ve read other stories on anti-vaccine sites.

        Autism is prenatal. It’s a different wiring of the brain and happens before birth.

    • Indiana Nurse

      Here is a fact. I took my neurologically healthy 1 year old to work one day and asked the secretary to hold him while I gave him an MMR vaccine. I took him home and over the next several weeks, I witnessed his change in health. His bowels became diarrhea with undigested food, mucus and very foul odor. Dark circles appeared under his eyes. He stared off into space and looked distant. He quit speaking. He began rotating plastic hangers in front of his face. He became frightened of trees and ceiling fans. WE LOST HIM and he has never returned. He will be 18 years old in July. I have met thousands of other families that have experienced this very same health deterioration just after vaccination but I have yet to meet a never vaccinated child with this experience. I have seen court records admitting vaccine injury resulting in this same health deterioration. NO ONE WILL EVER, AND i MEAN EVER, CONVINCE OUR FAMILY THIS DID NOT HAPPEN. We quit vaccinating at that time and thankfully, our next healthy son never had a health deterioration. He is about to turn 6 years old and we thank God in heaven he is healthy. Unless we, parents, take back all medical decisions and make this with all the information present and take into account our own family history, the health of our children will continue to decline.

    In 2008, the big story was about Hannah Poling, the Georgia girl who was awarded millions in compensation for vaccine damage that included autism.

    CBS News: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/vaccine-case-an-exception-or-a-precedent/

    CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta interviewed Dr. Jon Poling, a neurologist and father of Hannah Poling, http://www.ageofautism.com/2008/04/cnns-dr-gupta-i.html

    Gupta talked about “her case of autism diagnosis” (conceding that yes, Hannah Poling has autism), “having been contributed to by vaccines.”

    Dr. Poling: “The department of Health and Human Services conceded my daughter’s medical problems which are autism, encephalopathy, seizures, were brought on by vaccination.”

    Dr. Gupta: “That’s startling, I think, for a lot of people to hear that.” He acknowledged that, in Hannah Poling’s case, vaccines “turned out to be a problem.”

    Dr. Poling: “Until I saw a normal, eighteen month old toddler descend into autism, I wouldn’t have believed it was possible.”

    Dr. Gupta called Hannah’s case “rare,” but Dr. Poling said, “A lot of the media outlets put out a statement that says ‘rare, underlying, genetic, mitochondrial disease,'” but “four of those [words] are not accurate.”

    Dr. Poling, a researcher at Johns Hopkins, made statements that should have been followed up. He said, “There are probably multiple triggers. In my daughter, it was clearly the vaccinations. That was our experience. . . . The other cases that were at Johns Hopkins, there were only a few like Hannah.”

    So why did the media overwhelmingly portray Hannah Poling as such an exceptional child that no one was like her.

    He said that in Hannah’s case, “Clearly it was the vaccinations” that tipped her into autism.

    So what happened to the Poling story? Dr. Gupta didn’t call Dr. Poling a fraud for claiming that his daughter regressed into autism following her vaccinations, neither did the media experts at HHS who conceded her case. Dr. Gupta didn’t retract what he said on CNN.

    Dr. Poling, a researcher at Johns Hopkins, made statements that should have been followed up. He said, “There are probably multiple triggers. In my daughter, it was clearly the vaccinations. That was our experience. . . . The other cases that were at Johns Hopkins, there were only a few like Hannah.”

    So why did the media overwhelmingly portray Hannah Poling as such an exceptional child–that no one was like her. Dr. Poling mentioned other cases at Johns Hopkins just like Hannah. No one in the media bothered to find out who they were.

    Jon Poling urged the American Academy of Pediatric and doctors to develop “safe vaccine schedules for each individual patient.”

    That interview was six years ago. We still have a one-size-fits-all vaccine schedule.

    The truth is, no one knows how many children have the same predisposition that Hannah Poling did. No one wants to look either, especially the officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This story died a quick death in the media and it’s never brought up when the subject is vaccines and autism.

      Hannah Poling was not compensated because the vaccines caused her to have autism. She had a rare mitochondrial disorder that anything could have triggered, causing a regression, including fever from a vaccine preventable disease. The government conceded it may have been the vaccines that triggered it but she was not compensated because vaccines caused autism. See: http://scienceblogs.com/insolence/2008/03/10/the-hannah-poling-case-and-the-rebrandin/
      When her mother, Terry Poling, said so on Ms. Dachel’s blog – age of autism – she was viciously attacked.

      ; The United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation stated:
      There are no scientific studies documenting that childhood vaccinations cause mitochondrial diseases or worsen mitochondrial disease symptoms. In the absence of scientific evidence, the UMDF cannot confirm any association between mitochondrial diseases and vaccines.

        Dorit, here you are admitting, that the Poling child was paid compensation for exacerbation. I asked you,an attorney, how could they pay for exacerbation? When that, was done away with,under the new law. You, make fun of my son, not getting any compensation. FYI, we were told by our special master, that under the old law. She admitted, that she would have, had to compensate my son. But she said, you are not under the old law,that ship has sailed. You are now, under the new law, and it’s not possible to compensate your son. Dorit, how could that be. The Poling’s, was paid under exacerbation, and as you said. The government conceded, it may have been the vaccines that triggered it. How can you,being an attorney, not see the injustice of paying compensation. When, as the special master said,that ship has already sailed. Dorit,the NVICP is as corrupt as organized crime. They are looting, the children’s, US.
        Congress created. Vaccine injury compensation program.

        They pay, adsorbent special masters, salary’s. Here’s the problem,if they agree to stay on call,their paid for life.

        After just doing a few vaccine injury cases. The professional
        witnesses, they get 100’s of thousands of dollars, for their lying
        against an American vaccine injured child. The system, is so corrupted. That,the only person that’s, not getting paid.
        Is the vaccine injured American child,that it was created for.

        I really don’t mind when people argue in favor of getting vaccines. There are arguments that can be made in favor of vaccines. There are risks to vaccinating, and risks to not vaccinating. I don’t envy any parent trying to make these decisions today, with so many vaccines on the schedule now, and children suffering from so many immune and nervous system disorders much more frequently than in the past.

        But I do mind when people deny the obvious adverse actions to vaccines with fabricated senseless arguments. For example “She had a rare mitochondrial disorder that anything could have triggered, causing a regression, including fever from a vaccine preventable disease.” You don’t know that. You don’t have a view of alternative pasts and futures. The multiple vaccines she received may well have caused the mitochondrial disorder; there is no evidence that her mitochondrial disorder preceded the vaccines. Mercury can damage mitochondria.

        Etiology of Autism/Vaccine Damage/CHILD v. HHS
        http://www.autismpedia.org/wiki/index.php?title=Etiology_of_Autism/Vaccine_Damage/CHILD_v._HHS
        “Medical personnel at the Division of Vaccine Injury Compensation, Department of Health and Human Services (DVIC) have reviewed the facts of this case, as presented by the petition, medical records, and affidavits. After a thorough review, DVIC has concluded that compensation is appropriate in this case.
        “In sum, DVIC has concluded that the facts of this case meet the statutory criteria for demonstrating that the vaccinations CHILD received on July 19, 2000, significantly aggravated an underlying mitochondrial disorder, which predisposed her to deficits in cellular energy metabolism, and manifested as a regressive encephalopathy with features of autism spectrum disorder. Therefore, respondent recommends that compensation be awarded to petitioners in accordance with 42 U.S.C. § 300aa-11(c)(1)(C)(ii).”
        Autism is diagnosed by it’s “features”, and Hannah Poling was diagnosed with autism. She was compensated by the federal govt for vaccine injury — brain damage resulting in autism. And btw her mother wasn’t “viciously attacked” over at Age of Autism; some commenters simply argued with her, no attacks, nothing vicious.

      • AutismNewsBeat

        Hannah Poling’s physician said a natural infection could have triggered the girl’s encephalopathy, and whether it was caused by the vaccines is “unknowable.”

    Bought is an upcoming film about the issue of health being sold out from underneath individuals through big pharmaceutical companies, dangerous vaccinations and a food supply chain contaminated by the use of GMO’s.

    http://www.ageofautism.com/2013/12/bought-a-film-by-jeff-hays-and-bobby-sheehan-matching-fund-campaign.html

    The short trailer to the movie The Greater Good, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulmEGbwQsOU makes it clear that there are experts on both sides and a lot of serious questions that need to be asked. The medical community and health officials promote vaccines as the greatest achievement in modern medicine yet there is growing fear over vaccine side effects.

      I have not yet seen Bought – it’s not out yet – but it seems, from the trailer, to offer another conspiracy theory, ignoring the fact that vaccine studies are done worldwide by different teams of researchers with different sources of funding, and that it’s unrealistic that all of them are controlled. When they all find the same results – vaccines do not cause autism, vaccines are safe – people examining the evidence with clear eyes can’t reject it.

      The movie The Greater Good is anti-vaccine propaganda. It is structured around the stories of three suffering children and their families, presenting them as vaccine injuries – but upon close examination, there is no good evidence any of those children’s suffering was caused by a vaccine, and some evidence to the contrary: http://scienceblogs.com/insolence/2011/11/18/anti-vaccine-propaganda-lands-in-new-yor/. It then presents serious vaccine experts, like Dr. Paul Offit as equivalent to known anti-vaccine activists with no background in immunology, like Barbara Loe Fisher and other anti-vaccine activists, doing its best to paint a false picture that overestimates the dangers of vaccines. It is certainly not evidence of a link between vaccines and autism and does not counter the many studies debunking that link.

    “Every mom has to decide what information to rely on to make informed decisions for their child’s health.”

    Informed consent should include knowing that doctors and vaccine makers have no liability when it comes to vaccine side effects. They’ve been protected by federa law. Instead, parents of injured children have to appeal to an arbitrary compensation program where they’ve up against government lawyers defending the government’s vaccine schedule using government money. Few parents are ever compensated. Ones that are report it took seven to fourteen years for a decision.

    The FDA actually allows the vaccine makers to do their own safety studies; they merely accept the results.

    Hundreds of individuals at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have conflict waivers because of their ties to the vaccine industry yet we continue to go them for proof that vaccines don’t cause autism.

    The last head of the CDC, Dr. Julie Gerberding, a long time denier of any link, is now head of the vaccine division at Merck.

    This is the question CBS News asked in 2008, “How Independent Are Vaccine Defenders?”

      Not quite. If you are hurt by a vaccine, you go through a process that gives you very real advantages: you don’t have to show fault, which you normally would for a design defect; you do not have to show causation if you have a design injury; and you get lawyer fees even if you lose, which you would not in a regular court. The claim that people do not get their day in court is simply untrue; plaintiffs won about 27% in this court, compared to about 19% for product liability claim that are not asbestos. And plaintiff can appeal to the federal courts. In other words, it’s a very plaintiff-friendly process – and in spite of that, only 3400 have won, less than 0.03% of vaccine doses given. And it’s also inaccurate that there no ability to sue: you can go to regular courts for manufacturing and warning defects, and you can appeal the NVICP decision to the court.

        Initial studies are done by the manufacturers. They want to bring the vaccine to market, they should pay for showing it’s safe. The process is highly regulated and monitored. But post-market, studies are done by independent researchers in multiple organizations – universities and non-profits. Our safety data certainly does not come only from manufacturers.

    It is extremely distressing to see the blog owner fall for so many anti vaccine tropes. Let’s take them one by one:
    * Aluminum in vaccines. It’s true it’s there. Babies get less aluminum from vaccines than from breastmilk or formula. Studies showed that the aluminum in the schedule does not change the aluminum levels in an infant blood. See:

      You both seem to have invested a lot of time into this issue. I think that it is great for a mom like myself. I need to know both sides, and to be honest, there are not a lot of studies online (that I could find) that support vaccines. What you see in my post is a honest reaction and fear of what I came across. I will look at the links that you have posted here. I would like to mention that I have not told and would never tell a mother not to get her child immunized! I did write a post based on the overwhelming information that is out there and ANY mother reading this information would/could come up with the same reaction… Did you see the picture of that little baby?? well that is my baby and it strikes fear dead in the center of my heart to think that I could have put her in harms way in any scope of my imagination.

      That video is spot on and I was able to verify it with a little research. As is your clear conflict of interest in defending vaccines. I have googled you and I can no longer read your posts and believe for one second you aren’t financially compensated for your role. You say make some insanely illogical things that reek of corruption. Like Hannah Polling wasn’t compensated for Autism? She absolutely was as have several families. The vaccine compensation program appears to be a joke. So until that system is fixed, as well as a real placebo study for any vaccine is performed, my child will not be participating.

        Let me also point out to the tactic the commentator used. Since the data and evidence is not on the side of the anti-vaccine movement, the only way they can make their case is through conspiracy theories and personal attacks on those speaking up for vaccines. Many of us have been subjected to that tactic (and note, that I do mean anti-vaccine activists, not concerned parents). Here is an explanation of how weak a tactic this is: http://badskeptic.com/?p=750

        If it makes the owner of the blog feel better, I will announce that I am not paid to comment online. I am a law professor and get a salary for that. I comment because I think protecting children against disease is important and anti-vaccine misinformation directly puts children at risk.

      You would love that. That would be a professional pharma troll victory. I am so grateful this blogger stood her ground. Especially for parents looking for the truth. If your side had the truth behind it you wouldn’t have to flounder so hard, massage the facts, and troll every page on the planet that questions your very shaky authority. This is why so many states are looking to take away philosophical exemptions. Because you can’t put the public back to sleep so we must be forced, right? Dorit where do you stand on forced vaccination? Where do you stand on parental rights to refuse vaccination? Do you believe parents should be held liable for spreading disease if they don’t vaccinate yet you are ok with due process being denied to families with vaccine injured kids? Dorit, do kids ever get brain damage from vaccines? Can you assume the liability if my child dies from getting six shots in a day? Can you point me to one single solitary placebo study where the placebo is a TRUE placebo? Or a single study that shows me that that many shots in a day is safe? No?

    I love how you are not even CLOSE to being interested in informed debate. Or even interested in posting ANY studies showing the safety and efficacy of vaccines. By all means, see how many parents you can terrorize into not vaccinating their children. Showing only one side of this issue is presenting biased information, and hoping that nobody will notice. Shame on you.

    The vaccine issue is a very complicated one.

    If you ask someone whose child had a severe reaction to vaccines, they will tell you that it wasn’t worth the risk, and if they could do it over again, they would delay vaccines, give only one at a time, or even forgo them completely.

    If you ask someone who has been through “vaccine court,” even those who have won their cases will add that the process was extremely adversarial, that they were treated like criminals, and that everything possible was done to avoid placing any blame on the vaccine in question.

    Of course, most people who were injured by vaccines never knew that they could have taken their cases to “vaccine court” until the 3-year statute of limitations ended.

    To be fair, if you ask someone whose child died of a vaccine-preventable disease, they will say that of course EVERYONE should be vaccinated.

    But most people who contract flu, chicken pox, measles, mumps, etc., do not die or even have complications from those diseases.

    I know a lot of doctors who are increasingly skeptical of the claims that vaccines do no harm, as they are starting to see an increasing number of patients (and family members!) whose autoimmune diseases are triggered by vaccines. And these are adults. We are only just learning about the possibilities of autoimmune issues for children.

    Most (not all) of the doctors I know advise being cautious until more can be learned about both autoimmune disorders and the potential link with vaccines.

    from the FDA’s own paper – an admission that vaccines are grown on animal and human cells – many of them tumerogenic. There is an admission that the procedures to remove these cells from vaccines are not perfect. Also there are no studies on whether vaccines can cause cancer. I urge mothers and anyone considering vaccines to do your research – you and your children are only guinea pigs – there are no long term studies on whether vaccines cause cancer or auto immune disease.

    “Extensive adventitious agent testing is required for all cells that are proposed for use in vaccine production. This includes testing in various tissue culture systems, inoculation of animals followed by observation or detection of pathogen-specific antibodies, observation by electron microscopy, and molecular tests as is appropriate based on the history and type of cell to be tested. Specific polymerase chain reaction assays are used to rule out the presence of many different viruses. PCR-based reverse transcriptase assays are used to rule out the presence of retroviruses. The most sensitive of these assays include amplification steps, either as a result of viral growth in culture or in an organism, or molecular amplification such as in PCR.

    Although Ad5-transformed cells are thought to be transformed by a known mechanism, the consequences of overlooking an occult oncogenic agent are significant. As these are the first cells in their class to be considered for vaccine production, evaluating them for the presence of occult oncogenic agents could enhance confidence in their use. One relevant animal assay that could be used for such an evaluation is the inoculation of cell-free lysates into susceptible newborn rodents, followed by observation for 5-6 months. This assay would detect most known tumor viruses, as well as potentially detect unknown tumor viruses.

    Several promising areas of research suggest that experimental assays to detect unknown adventitious agents could soon become more generally available. As such assays become available, they could be considered for use in qualifying novel cell substrates, including neoplastic cell substrates.

    Risk of Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathy (TSE)

    In addition to assessing the possibility of contamination of cell substrates with infectious virus, it is important to consider other agents such as the agent of TSE. There are several mechanisms by which vaccine cell substrates, including neoplastic cells, could theoretically become infected with a TSE http://www.fda.gov/ohrms/dockets/ac/01/briefing/3750b1_01.htm

    Another thing: if you’re going to look for information regarding vaccinations, use Google Scholar – it will tend to weed out the unreliable websites, which Anne has mentioned. (AoA, etc).

    For example, a Google Scholar search of ‘Vaccine safety’ brings back close to a million hits:

    http://scholar.google.dk/scholar?hl=en&q=vaccine+safety&btnG=&as_sdt=1%2C5&as_sdtp=

    It’s not a guarantee they’re all legitimate, but it’s better than a basic Google search – it’ll weed out most of the conspiracy laden alarmist sites, like the Canary Party, etc.

      I will make a deal with you, if you can tell me why,if no children
      were harmed, by the massive amounts of mercury. They tried desperately, to get protection,for the patent holder, of the mercury based preservative. That BTW FYI was used in almost all children’s vaccines (Thimerosal) They made 3 failed attempts,followed by the last attempt. Which was, Ten US. Senators, release, of 10 shot gun bills. All containing, the same written language, of protection.
      For all,of the damage, that was done. To American children, by the Mercury based preservative created by Lilly Pharmaceuticals.

      They,meaning a Congressman, Several US. Senators, and a sitting
      President. GW Bush. They were all,as busy as, trained circus animals. All jumping through hoops,to hide what had happened to a generation of American children.

      Like I said, when I am through, you will have no excuse. But to admit, that the vaccine program, is another example of fools Gold.

    Here comes, one of your biggest! problems yet. Your quoting, an organization, that the UMDF President. Admitted, when he did that favor for the CDC Dir. That, he was lying through his teeth,to get future funding.

    I called, and talked to his scientist. He told me, that they said you need to talk to this guy! So he called me, I told him, that I did a few minute Google search. On what, is the most damaging, to the
    Mitochondria. To my surprise, I told him, that the 1st is inorganic mercury (That Thimerosal turns into) and 2nd is MSG. I said,both of which, are in children’s vaccines. His answer,it floored me, he said son. You, just got to learn, how to play game. For, funding! He then said, how do you know, all of this? I am impressed. I said, this is my sons life. I have left, no stone un turned, in my research.

    Parents, I listened to two people lie,on this issue. 1 st was the CDC Dir. when she said that Mitochondria disorders are rare. Fact is, that she was told this, just prior to that statement. By six teams, of Mitochondria specialist. That Said, Mitochondria disorders, are not rare at all. In fact, the CDC was told, 1 in 50 may have the nuclear DNA for the Mitochondria problems. And they then said, that the possibilities for Autism then,they are staggering. They also, told the CDC, that something is pushing the immune system farther than it’s capacity. They then suggested, “that vaccines do that” By design. They also warned, the CDC. That in no un certain terms, were they to bury, this very important information. That, they have uncovered. If they choose to do that,they (the six teams) said.We will, turn over our findings to the public. Those 6 teams, that had said that, they under estimated.

    The power,of corruption,at the CDC and the AAP. They had also, under estimated,how far up,and how far, that corruption reaches.

    He was lying, straight faced, without flinching. To the American public. And I will, take a Polygraph, and prove it. If he is this corrupt,he doesn’t need to hold, this important of a position.

    Damn them, all to hell, those who lie, while our children suffer and die. Again “you just got to learn how to play the game”

    We will never! see the end of this nightmare. Because those in power,that can change things. They look, at this like its a game.

    MR. UMDF president, this game, as you put it. That, by lying to the public, you are prolonging. Is costing this Nation,about 6 million dollars. For each child, that the vaccine effected. For, life long care cost.

    Your words,were lies, and you know it,because you admitted it.
    This, is not a game for funding, it is children’s and their parents lives. That your admitting, playing with.

    The United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation stated:
    There are no scientific studies documenting that childhood vaccinations cause mitochondrial diseases or worsen mitochondrial disease symptoms. In the absence of scientific evidence, the UMDF cannot confirm any association between mitochondrial diseases and vaccines.

    The picture captioned, Dionne’s first shots. That may not, be true.
    For the hep-b, it is given within hr’s of the first breath. Of, life.

    That one shot, was one of their biggest, mistakes. Here is why, most parents they know nothing, of the ( MSDS ) manufactures material safety data sheet.

    This, is all on the MSDS,of Thimerosal.

    The CDC, FDA, and also the AAP,all say that thimerosal does not accumulate in the child’s body. As you can see,they are very sadly mistaken. Or, lying. You will, understand later, that these well meaning civil servants. All agree,it’s better to lie to the American people. Than it is, for the public,to lose all confidence, in the AAP vaccine program. They also say,that thimerosal, does not cross the blood brain barrier. Buzzer sounding, wrong! if it has the ability, to target the brain, and the lining around the brain.
    I’m assuming, that it has to enter the brain first. To target, the brain.

    So, the manufacturer’s MSDS, also calls the CDC FDA and the AAP liars. On this issue. One other proof is, an NIH paid study,done on baby primates, revealed that thimerosal crosses the BBB easier than does the fish mercury. Slikker from the FDA, in the 90’s said, “that thimerosal not only crosses the BBB but the placental barrier also” So again, by the evidence, of not only the MSDS, but also. An NIH paid, biological study, and a FDA scientist. They all, by very clear evidence, disagree. With, the three stooges of vaccine safety.

    MSDS
    “thimerosal is accumulative in the body, it targets the organs of the body in particular the brain and the lining around the brain”

    “thimerosal is a mutagenic” Meaning, it has the ability, to mutate your child’s genes. Their always saying,that these children, have mutated genes. Now, you know why.

    “if you are exposed to thimerosal, any future exposures to mercury may make you susceptible to mercury poisoning”

    Remember what I said, about the Birth dose, being the biggest mistake, they ever made? Here’s why,they unknowingly set the stage. For what, would prove, to be the perfect storm. For all,of the mercury containing vaccines. That are set,by AAP the vaccine schedule, just months away. To cause, mercury poisoning,that’s leading to neurological damage. Here’s where, it get insane! After knowing, that the birth dose, makes one susceptible, to mercury poisoning. The AAP, CDC, FDA,the three stooges of vaccine safety.
    Allow American children, to be given up to 9 vaccines / with 7
    that may contain the mercury. All at once, at one point in time.
    In, one little body. Again,they have unknowingly, set the stage for the perfect storm. Of,many of the Neurological disorders that
    we are seeing. Today. Including,the to big to hide, elephant in the room. The 1 in 50 children, with 1 in 31 being boys,with Autism.

    Under re-activity data, MSDS

    ” never mix thimerosal, with Aluminum” Parents, guess what is in children’s vaccines as a catalyst? Aluminum. You really, couldn’t get much dumber,than these over educated highly paid Idiot’s. That never err, on the side of caution,or heed any of the crystal clear warnings. The reason, to not mix the two. The manufacturer knew, that doing so,causes the primary toxin. To be increased, in toxicity. As much as, 10 to 100 times the original toxicity.

    Here’s is why,some children are born with Autism. On the MSDS

    ” pregnant women, are never supposed to be exposed to thimerosal,for it can cross the placenta,go into the baby
    and cause mild to sever mental retardation ”

    If I was pregnant,I would ask my OBGYN, why would you, allow me, to be injected with a compound. That the manufacturer,says will cause mild to severe mental retardation? He, will have no answers! And while your at it,ask if that’s true. Why are you suggesting, that I get 2 flu vaccines and 2 Rogam shots,all containing thimerosal. He will hate you for sure. But, your baby will be safe. For most Dr’s, and Ped’s, know nothing, of what I just shared with you. More to come,and the sad thing is, that their level,of incompetence. It just gets worse,much worse. Later, you will learn, how the prestigious IOM took a dive. Using this rational.
    It’s better,for us to lie to the public. Than, to have the public,not get vaccinated.

    Remember, it was just a few months ago,that ABC’s Dr. Oz, was worried about 30 ppb of Arsenic in the apple juice. His concerns, and suspicions, they were proven correct. By, consumer reports.

    Now, people are calling (including the FDA) for some regulation, of apple juice and toxins.

    ( Arsenic is a lesser Toxin,by 500 times, what was injected into our kids ) The [ Vaccineal Mercury ]

    That’s real rich, the same FDA, that was guilty of misleading ABC’s Dr.Besser, by as Dr. Besser admitted. On ABC’s Nightly world news [ by giving him, incorrect facts ]. Is now! calling, for some regulation. Little late, don’t you think! Truthfully, they were trying to deceive, ABC’s Dr. Richard Besser. And, the public.

    And were told,” that ” were misleading the public ???

    That act of deception, can be looked at, in two ways. Either, they were ignorantly & criminally incompetent. Or, they were trying purposely, to deceive ABC’s Dr.Besser and this Nations people.
    The people, that their suppose to, and paid very well to serve.

    Below, is a portion of the actual transcript, of ABC’s Dr.Besser taking a well deserved beating. It appears, Dr. Besser like many others, spoke out without doing their own homework.

    That, happens a lot these days.

    But, never do we see someone, admit on a news program. That, they were dead wrong! It usually just doesn’t happen, it makes you wonder, if Dr. Oz might have demanded, a retraction. And he got it!

    From, the ABC world news own transcript. My respect, for Diann Sawyer, it grew immensely that day.

    Diann Sawyer, the anchor of ABC world news. Asked ABC’s Dr Besser, “did it make you mad (Dr. Besser) going into battle with insufficient incorrect facts from the FDA? Bessers reply was “Oh! yeah,what bothers me most is that when Memit and I spoke before the information I had, was from the FDA was incorrect. He turns to Dr Oz, and says. you were right!

    Kuddo’s Dr. Besser, for admitting, you were dead wrong. And by admitting, that you were wrong. You, have cornered your self, on the Mercury in the children’s vaccines issue. Like a trapped, Rat. I just hope, for the children’s sake, that you have the integrity & the Guts to admit it. But personally, i’m not going to hold my breath, till you do.

    What, was Dr. Oz right about?Parents, here is where my questions, push them into a corner. With no, logical way out!

    That the ingested Arsenic, in as little as 30 ppb in apple juice, was harmful. And according, to one of the most respected Dr’s in history. They do not know, the long. Or even, the short term, health effects for our kids. And that, it was also the Inorganic type, as Dr.Besser had called it, [the bad Arsenic] As he, Dr.Oz in his research had found.

    If this question,that I posed below, were answered (under oath) [with hand on Bible] truthfully, in a Congressional hearing. Heads, would most certainly roll, in the AAP, CDC, FDA, IOM, & the WHO.

    So, if 30 ppb of a lesser [ingested] toxin,is a long and short term health concern. That needs, to be immediately, addressed.

    What is thousands of ppb via hep-b (injected) given within hours of the first breath of life? And then, is repeated, a few months later except, with a twist.They are now injecting, 7 vaccines with 10’s of thousands of ppb’s of a greater toxin [injected mercury] that by passes the body’s filtering organs? And readily, has the express ability to cross the BBB, that’s given within hours of the first breath. That a newborn, takes?

    MSDS ( Manufacturer’s Safety Data Sheet ) states what thousands of PPB’s of injected mercury is.
    “pregnant women, are never supposed to be exposed to Thimerosal, for it can cross the placenta, and go into the baby, and cause mild to severe mental retardation” That’s verbatim, what the Manufacturer of Thimerosal, says about their product. Seems, that the medical community, pushing Thimerosal loaded flu vaccines in pregnant women. Didn’t get, that important memo. And that’s why, some baby’s are born Autistic.

    I really wish, I was pregnant. So I could ask an OB,GYN Doc.
    Why would you, want to inject something, into my body that the manufacturer says, will cross my placenta. And go into my baby, and cause mild to severe Mental retardation???? The follow up question, to that. Would be, are you freaking Insane ???? Or just, plain stupid!

    I believe, he would have to take the fifth.

    Mild, ADD, ADHD, Speech Delay,Severe, Autism, Bipolar, Anorexia,
    Asthma,and Childhood C.P.

    Official answer is, sadly it’s AAP recommended. And, considered FDA and CDC certified Safe? Again, not at all possible. And the sad thing is, they know it. And now parents,you do to.

    Measles, are usually very mild, and do not pose a long term problem. The MMR fragmenting off, and in-bedding it’s self in children’s Guts, and cerebral spinal. That’s a different story,
    those internal cases, may never be able to be removed. Causing,
    in the child’s Guts, an inflammation. That totally, destroys the health of the child. Unmerciful,suffering! follows, the internal Gut inflammation.

    The parents choice, is simple. A couple of weeks, of discomfort. For a lifetime, of immunity. Or a lifetime, of misery, & unmerciful suffering. Via MM. Children, are bashing their heads, into the family walls. Beating their arms and legs trying to keep from feeling the constant pain and agony. Of, their vaccine induced Gut pains. That,BTW parents, could stop an elephant. Running around,& screaming, like they have been doused with gasoline, and set on fire. Attacking their Parents, and care givers.

    Till their parents, take one of two roads. Agree,with the Pediatric Dr’s that the behavior is all in the head of the child. And, that the child, is just exhibiting bad Autistic behavior. Next,they allow a Psychiatrist. To prescribe drugs, like Haldol. Till their little faces, are twisted. Permanently!

    And then, the child. Who is suffering unmercifully, is strapped into a wheel chair drooling at the mouth. Sedated! Sometimes,it’s for the rest of their lives.

    Road two,the Parent does their own, independent investigating
    of all of the science. Comes to the conclusion, that the bowel disorders, all began, right after the MMR was given. Then the parent,finds a good Gastrointestinal Dr. that has mercy on the child. And orders a pill cam,the pill cam reveals. The 14 and a half inches, of red raw bleeding ulcers. Ulcers,that other Gastro’s didn’t find. They didn’t think, a pill cam was justified. We asked, they said No! The 14 and a half inches,of red raw bleeding ulcers. That had the child, beating his head, arms, legs, and face, till they were all bruised and sometime bloody. Against anything, he could find. Just to get his mind, off of the real pain!

    He would,at times grab his head, and scream like someone was skinning him alive. A simple Protocol,that was developed by Dr. Wakefield decades ago,was used on my son. It has now reduced, his pain by 80 to 90 percent. The Autistic behavior, is still there. We figured, that after decades of the MMR damage. That, it may never go away. We,can except that.

    But the pain,that was destroying his body. and our house and lives. Is finally, dissipating. No thanks to the Main Stream Medical Monkeys. Or the 3 stooges, of public health FDA CDC and AAP.

    The worthless IACC has spent 1 billion dollars and 10 yr’s and they have given us. nothing! No treatments!

    The useless Dir. of the IACC, that denied that the increase is real. Dr. Insel, said this about a yr. or so ago. “this is a real increase,how we prepare a Nation for 1 million who may need significant amounts of services” He said,that Most are under the age of 18, and they are working their way through the system like a WAVE!

    Dorit, how dare you! defend these thugs, in 3 piece suits. Guilty, of doing crimes against humanity.. For a profit.

    A little more, Pharma scandal.

    2 Merck employees,have come forward, and accused Merck of knowing. That Mercks, MMR’s Mumps portion, was worthless.
    For Decades! Where, is all the outbreaks? If, those 2 Merck employees are right. We should be, up to our necks in mumps cases. It appears, not only is their vaccines, fools Gold. Their perception, of runaway diseases. Is, way over exaggerated. To the point,of using scare tactics,to push their profits.

        No, but visualize, that child’s leg with a knot extending from his knee to his hip.That stuck up, about 3 and a half inches high,at the injection site. The knot,was cherry red,and extremely hot!!! to the touch.The next day, he had 3 mini seizures, and the fever,it continued on. Before,perfectly normal child,talking and everything. Days after, the 7 vaccines,and the strange behavior begins. Sniffing, everything and chewing,like a rat. Fact was, the vaccines, made him super sensitive to smells. He
        also, had a freakish desire, to want to chew on everything !!!!. That’s a behavior,that’s called Pica,it was a direct new behavior.
        That was caused,directly by the vaccines. He then, starts this thing, called stemming. It’s, flapping his hands, while running. So Dorit,you have made many statements,on many articles on vaccines & autism. About my son, being turned down, by the ever so corrupted (NVICP) compensation program. By going, on what the CDC Dir. said, he should have been compensated.

        She mentioned, that “if a child was immunized, got a fever, and other complications, from the vaccine. ” then if, you are predisposed, to a mitochondrial disorder,it can certainly set off some damage.” “some of the symptoms, can be symptoms with characteristics of autism. My son, he was evaluated by a geneticist,he has a mitochondrial, disorder. He had, a very bad injection site, reaction. He also, had the fever, and three mini seizures. And we know, that he got 7 vaccines, on one day, at one setting. It appears, my son, according to the Poling model
        should have been compensated. You guys,make fun of my son not being compensated. We were out,by the time he was 16, $40,000 dollars on diapers, wet wipes,and chucks. Dorit, is it still funny,that this Nation has decided, to throw it’s vaccine damaged American children, head first under the bus.

        Here’s the link, to the CDC’s Dir, admitting that vaccines can cause symptom,s that are characteristic, of autistic symptoms.

        That’s double speak,for vaccines cause autism! We just can’t afford, to admit it. EVER!
        In this video,the Dir. of the CDC,lies straight faced, without flinching. BY saying, that Hannah, had a rare Mitochondria disorder. When in-fact, her agency, was just told, by six teams
        of mito. specialist. That mitochondria disorders, are not rare
        at all. In fact, they said. 1 in 50, may have the nuclear DNA for mito. problems. As you watch this, she the Dir,appears to be trying to say,that just about anything, can set these kids off.

        The six teams, gave the CDC 2 warnings. They said, with 1 in 50 children, having the nuclear DNA, for this not rare disorder.
        The possibilities, for Autism then, are staggering. They also said, that under no circumstances, are the CDC to ignore their
        findings. They followed that,with” if you do,then we will turn over our findings to the public.”

        They also said, that something is pushing, the immune system farther than it metabolic reserves can handle. They then said, that Vaccines, they do that!

        Parents, watch this in human, with no conscience, squirm while trying to spin. This news, that vaccine cause Autism.

      Joe, the measles virus killed about a million people a year, mostly children, before widespread vaccination occurred. It can also cause encephalopathy and blindness. It is particularly dangerous to infants and immunocompromised individuals.

        ANB, that does not show that it is safe to give 7 vaccines at the same time.

        Measles deaths are much more common when in the midst of poverty, malnutrition, dirty water, lack of antibiotics. An immunologist told me that most measles deaths in third world countries are due to secondary infections. I grew up in the U.S. before the measles vaccine existed, we all came down with measles, and I never knew anyone who died or suffered long-term effects. Serious complications from measles can occur. That doesn’t mean we should ignore and discount as coincidence the serious complications which can occur from vaccines. These need to be better understood for the sake of prevention, treatment, and weighing the risk & benefits of each vaccine for each individual.

        Again, it is not just a matter of all-vaccines vs. no-vaccines. A good vaccine program must address the negatives instead of sweeping them under the rug.

      • Joe

        You want me, to see your point, but you refuse to acknowledge
        the damage that my son got from the MMR vaccine. And, I am not talking, about Autistic symptoms. I am talking, about the havoc, that the infection causes. When the measles, splinters off, and deposits it’s self, in the children’s Guts and cerebral spinal.

        It literally destroys, the whole bodies ability,to deal with foods.
        Thus causing, the Autism, or the effects of the (already there) Autism, to get much worse.

        If Vaccine strain measles, are found in the Guts, of some of the Autistic individuals. Should, those children, be compensated?

    What is wrong, with this Nation. Was addressed, by the Bible. Thousands of yr’s ago,and it will be what eventually buries us. Mystery Babylon,will be destroyed in 1 Hr. It will be, because she would not repent of her Pharmacai.

    This, once great Nation. Has sold it’s soul, and the (freedom of the press) to the Pharmacuiticle Companies.

    The Powerful House Appropriations Committee, from Congress. Acting under pressure from the parents of vaccine injured,researcher’s, and other Congressman. Asked to see, the science that the CDC Dir. had for her concluding vaccines. Don’t! cause Autism.

    They brought, the NIH in to do the work. The NIH, turned that political hot potato over to the NIH’s NIEHS (the environmental side, of the NIH) The studies, they were all evaluated by NIEHS’s Dr. Irva Hertz-Picciotto, Ph.D., M.P.H.

    Dr. Picciottos findings, were as follows. That, all the large population based environmental studies done in the VSD. She concluded,( by evaluation) that they were en-effect useless. Her words were,that they were riddled full of design flaws. Rendering them, en-effect useless! The expert,from NIEHS. Also, said this in regards to those very highly quoted by the CDC AAP & FDA Denmark studies.

    As bad, as the VSD environmental studies were. They were an improvement, over the other two.The two Denmark studies. That was said, by the NIEHS’s
    Dr Picciotto. Years, before the Danish fraud was uncovered. The CAA funded fraud that was being produced, for the CDC. Out,of Denmark.

    From a FOIA email,one can easily discern. That the CDC, had no real desire to get to the real truth. Of what had happened, to an entire generation. Of now, neurologically disabled American children. Especially, since it had happened on their (CDC) CBER watch. In fact, Dr. Egan of CDC’s CBER div. was told by a US.
    Congressman. “DR Egan, on your watch we have lost a generation of children”

    That happened, at a Congressional hearing on vaccines and Autism. Dr. Egan, after being told that. He just, turned into a zombie. His eyes, got glazed.

    What is wrong, with this Nation. Was addressed, by the Bible. Thousands of yr’s ago,and it will be what eventually buries us. Mystery Babylon,will be destroyed in 1 Hr. It will be, because she would not repent of her Pharmacai.

    This, once great Nation. Has sold it’s soul, and the (freedom of the press) to the Pharmacuiticle Companies.

    The Powerful House Appropriations Committee, from Congress. Acting under pressure from the parents of vaccine injured,researcher’s, and other Congressman. Asked to see, the science that the CDC Dir. had for her concluding vaccines. Don’t! cause Autism.

    They brought, the NIH in to do the work. The NIH, turned that political hot potato over to the NIH’s NIEHS (the environmental side, of the NIH) The studies, they were all evaluated by NIEHS’s Dr. Irva Hertz-Picciotto, Ph.D., M.P.H.

    Dr. Picciottos findings, were as follows. That, all the large population based environmental studies done in the VSD. She concluded,( by evaluation) that they were en-effect useless. Her words were,that they were riddled full of design flaws. Rendering them, en-effect useless! The expert,from NIEHS. Also, said this in regards to those very highly quoted by the CDC AAP & FDA Denmark studies.

    As bad, as the VSD environmental studies were. They were an improvement, over the other two.The two Denmark studies. That was said, by the NIEHS’s Dr Picciotto. Years, before the Danish fraud was uncovered. The CAA funded fraud that was being produced, for the CDC. Out,of Denmark.

    From a FOIA email,one can easily discern. That the CDC, had no real desire to get to the real truth. Of what had happened, to an entire generation. Of now, neurologically disabled American children. Especially, since it had happened on their (CDC) CBER watch. In fact, Dr. Egan of CDC’s CBER div. was told by a US.
    Congressman. “DR Egan, on your watch we have lost a generation of children”

    That happened, at a Congressional hearing on vaccines and Autism. Dr. Egan, after being told that. He just, turned into a zombie. His eyes, got glazed. He looked like a deer, caught in headlights. It took woman from HHS, to escort him out of the hearing. They were literately, having to holding him up. One would have to be an idiot,to see that. And not know, that this is a cover up. He Dr. Egan. Was struck,down to his very core!of his being.

    This article has so many problems. First of all, aluminum is not a “heavy metal” as the writer claims. It is, however, the second most common element on the planet. It’s present in virtually everything we eat and drink, and in every breath we take. Breast milk contains aluminum. So does formula. And then there’s this: vaccines do not contain elemental aluminum. Some contain an aluminum salt, and there is no real evidence that the tiny amount used in vaccines is dangerous. Relying on VaxTruth.org for information about vaccines is like quoting Stormfront.com for a history of the holocaust.

    • Joe

      Isn’t it amazing,that you would come here, to defend” injected ” Aluminum. I find the fact,that the Manufacturer of Thimerosal,
      put a warning on their MSDS. (Interesting) Under re-activity data,
      it states to not mix Thimerosal with Aluminum. That’s because, of a probable synergistic, effect. I assume, that they are talking about the injected, form. Aluminum, salts. Or, it wouldn’t pertain, to their product.

      What amazes me, is that, you cannot seem. To understand, that any-thing injected. By passes, the body’s filtering organs,and then it deposits it’s self, in the brain.

      You do understand, that the reason for the warning, is that a toxin
      when mixed with another toxin. Grows, in toxicity.

      It is, absolutely impossible, for vaccines to be safe. In the current form, and schedule. The nastiest, vile stuff,is being injected into our children’s bodies. When it was only, just a few vaccines,the damage wasn’t as great. The damage,has grown lock step, with the increase of the added children’s vaccines.

      To an already bloated, vaccine schedule.

    This is an unbelievably irresponsible post, and I can only hope that any parent reading this will take the time to discuss this matter with professionals. It takes a unique kind of arrogance for laypeople to think they are somehow more qualified to make these assessments than scientists who have dedicated their lives to studying this matter.

    All the evidence that suggests vaccines cause autism is either based on correlation, has been de-bunked, shown to be fradulent, or has been countered by many other peer-reviewed studies. There is a way that science is done, and it works, and in this case it prevents children for getting diseases.

    You can site correlative evidence for remarkably idiotic causes for autism, e.g. it is NOW CLEAR THAT ORGANIC FOODS CAUSE AUTISM, please everyone freak out and post all over the Internet:

      I never claimed to be an medical expert or a news reporter on the subject. I am simply a mommy blogger, and I represent the tens of millions of new mothers out there who also are not medical experts or reporters but who concerned about their children’s health.

      What I did was share the information that was most available to me when I searched online, which is the same info any other parent would come across doing the same search and asked the same questions any other concerned parent would ask.

      The fact that I am able to spark debate on this issue is helping to guide people who are concerned about this issue closer to the truth. So I feel this post was in fact “Highly Responsible”

      Reply
      • Paul Singh

        It is irresponsible because you have a public medium to express your views, and so you are not just like tens of millions of new mothers. As a blogger with reach, I believe you have a responsibility to demonstrate that you have done enough research to at least attempt to arrive at the truth, not just present the one-sided misinformation that you happened to come across when you did a Google search.

        I don’t doubt your intentions and I imagine you are a wonderful person, but you have a responsibility when you post on a news site, even if it’s in the blog section… especially when it impacts the health of children, and ultimately, everyone on the planet. This is an extremely serious issue and we are starting to see a resurgence in some diseases because of the misinformation about vaccines.

        It is not enough to justify by saying “I started a debate.” This debate has already been going on… you didn’t start it, instead you fed a debate that should have been resolved a long time ago because the evidence is clear that childhood vaccines work and are safe.

        This is on par to Climate Change deniers, and Fox News when it presents bizarre right-wing propaganda crouched in the form of “questions” so as to technically not be inaccurate.

      • Dawn

        Arrive at the truth? Was that what I was suppose to have found from searching the internet? Even from reading the 50+ comments with countless links and website references, I doubt that I would be able to arrive at the truth. That is the point. My point was to raise a question…

        I understand that I did not “start” the debate of this issue as a whole but I have started a debate as it pertains to my post. If you read my post, you see that I stated that it should spark a question. Because as a mother I have questions about this, it is very important to me because my child is at stake. I would never tell a mother she should or should not vaccinate. I’m not sure of that decision myself. That is why I have replied on several comments that I am happy people have offered other resources for and against. You have the opportunity via this blog to shed light on this just as I do.

        Just like I posted what I read on one site, I also posted that the FDA says it is perfectly safe. You are surely entitled to your opinion and I appreciate you expressing it here on this forum.

      • Joe

        Dawn, don’t let the little shill, intimidate you. The only thing, he knows is, what the script says. He should try living, with vaccine induced aftermath, before giving his opinion.

      • Paul Singh

        No, I didn’t say you should have arrived at the truth on your own. But you should have done some balanced research and TRIED to arrive at the truth before posting on a public forum about such an important topic.

        For instance, when you posted a 5+ minute YouTube video that is entirely one-sided, did you do a simple search to see what experts have said about it? For instance, the first result when you Google search for “canary party video counterpoint” is a detailed response to the video. Wouldn’t the responsible thing have been to at least present both before starting a discussion?

        If I were to put up a blog post now about Obama’s (supposed) lack of birth certificate and how he’s not American, and point to a bunch of sites calling him in question… but then end it with, “Hey guys, just asking a question! Let’s discuss.” Is that responsible?

      • Dawn

        I don’t believe I could ever arrive at the truth, well unless God forbid my child had an adverse reaction to a vaccine. My daughter has been vaccinated… I just hope that I don’t end up saying Paul was right I should have looked deeper into this before I let them stick her.

        I’m sorry to say that video was a very emotion video. Every side of this is evidently being argued out on so many levels.

        I am learning so much from this though. As overwhelming as it is I have continued my research and I probably will never stop.

      • Paul Singh

        I would be remiss if I didn’t offer a suggestion at this point. I truly believe that your intention was to start a genuine discussion, though I believe you should have been more diligent and balanced in your presentation. To that end, I would second some other suggestions on here that you make a follow-up post with some of the arguments against the links you presented. Keep in mind that Brooklyn Reader is indexed as a news source by Google, while comments are not, and so you are now contributing to the misinformation that is out there… it would at least make sense to also present the counterpoint. In either case, I suppose we’ve both said all that there is to say to each other on this topic.

        IMO climate change deniers are on a par with vaccine injury deniers.

        We need transportation. Cars are good for transportation. We need industry. But too much cars and industry results in pollution that impacts our planet. We have to figure out how to meet our needs for transportation and industry without destroying the planet.

        Likewise, vaccines play an important role in preventing disease, but too many vaccines results in harm to bodies and minds caused by skewed immune systems – autoimmunity, inflammation – autism, adhd, bipolar, asthma, food allergies, IBD, diabetes…

        We cannot even begin to solve these problems without recognizing them. Our health authorities are layering on more and more vaccines, and declaring unintended consequences to be coincidence.

        Abstract
        Autoimmunity to the central nervous system (CNS), especially to myelin basic protein (MBP), may play a causal role in autism, a neurodevelopmental disorder. Because many autistic children harbor elevated levels of measles antibodies, we conducted a serological study of measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) and MBP autoantibodies. Using serum samples of 125 autistic children and 92 control children, antibodies were assayed by ELISA or immunoblotting methods. ELISA analysis showed a significant increase in the level of MMR antibodies in autistic children. Immunoblotting analysis revealed the presence of an unusual MMR antibody in 75 of 125 (60%) autistic sera but not in control sera. This antibody specifically detected a protein of 73-75 kD of MMR. This protein band, as analyzed with monoclonal antibodies, was immunopositive for measles hemagglutinin (HA) protein but not for measles nucleoprotein and rubella or mumps viral proteins. Thus the MMR antibody in autistic sera detected measles HA protein, which is unique to the measles subunit of the vaccine. Furthermore, over 90% of MMR antibody-positive autistic sera were also positive for MBP autoantibodies, suggesting a strong association between MMR and CNS autoimmunity in autism. Stemming from this evidence, we suggest that an inappropriate antibody response to MMR, specifically the measles component thereof, might be related to pathogenesis of autism.

        Abstract
        Virus-induced autoimmunity may play a causal role in autism. To examine the etiologic link of viruses in this brain disorder, we conducted a serologic study of measles virus, mumps virus, and rubella virus. Viral antibodies were measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay in the serum of autistic children, normal children, and siblings of autistic children. The level of measles antibody, but not mumps or rubella antibodies, was significantly higher in autistic children as compared with normal children (P = 0.003) or siblings of autistic children (P ≤ 0.0001). Furthermore, immunoblotting of measles vaccine virus revealed that the antibody was directed against a protein of approximately 74 kd molecular weight. The antibody to this antigen was found in 83% of autistic children but not in normal children or siblings of autistic children. Thus autistic children have a hyperimmune response to measles virus, which in the absence of a wild type of measles infection might be a sign of an abnormal immune reaction to the vaccine strain or virus reactivation.

      The real cause, of increasing Autism, is people like you. Who think, that those who are called scientist. Are moral, and have integrity,
      more that the next guy.

      Just because, they is called a scientist,doesn’t mean that they are moral. Case in point,the so called prestigious IOM, they lied to the American people. When they, were in the valley of decision. To tell the truth, about their real findings, at their 2004 meeting.

      I assume, that if a person says, “we are caught in a trap” “how we work our way out of the trap,I think is the charge” Does not,reflect
      the report, they gave the American people. At that time, they were given, an impossible job. The CDC, told the IOM,that this, is how we want you to rule! You are to pay, very little attention to the biologic’s of this issue. And then IOM, you are to put all of your confidence,in the large population studies. The IOM, was told to only consider, the Epidemiological studies. Those, were the same studies,that the NIEHS,had ruled to be riddled full of design flaws.
      Rendering them,en-effect in her words useless.

      It’s the same,data base,that the president of the U.S. had Decided, was so bad, that he was going to seal it. Forever! From the public, and non governmental, scientist view. But oddly,it the same VSD
      that the chief science officer,Dr. Berneir said. Was chocked, full of
      nothing, but good quality sound robust studies. All proving, that the vaccines are safe, and that they do not, cause autism. That’s not, at all the findings of the NIEHS. Her findings was, that the VSD
      Environmental studies, were in her words, USELESS.

      For the president,to have known to seal them, reflects that his own public health agencies. Knew very well,that they were lying. About, the science they had.

      Then you have, the Dir. of the CDC, basically admitting. That the VSD, environmental studies. Were in her words, “to use them any
      further, would be misleading” So now, I have a question for you Paul, just where do you see,any integrity in this kind of behavior?

      Oh! the CDC Dir. also said,when she come to the conclusion, she could not defend her science any further. She made this, damning statement.

      “but if you do give us more time, we will do good quality studies”

      Don’t you think Paul, that the American people, deserve better than to be lied to, by their public health agencies? And how does,
      telling someone, (IOM) to find no causation. Equal to, scientific studies, proving the safety of vaccines? And how does that, equate
      to. What, the special masters said, about the three test cases on vaccines, as a cause for autism. “the science was so overwhelming
      against the parents, that they had no choice, but to rule against the parents. That’s not, at all what the evidence shows, special master Hastings, NVICP. Again, the evidence that he said he used, was the IOM report. PROVEN FRAUD! In fact, they ( the IOM members ) disbanded, right after their report was given to the CDC. He also,
      mentions, the large population studies. PROVEN USELESS! Then last,he mentions, the Denmark studies. The lead author, has a warrant out for his arrest. He was indicted, by the Atlanta GA grand jury on thirteen counts of fraud, and nine counts, of money laundering. Parents,seems he was allegedly, stealing some of the CAA autism research money. (almost 2 million)

      So now, I will ask,how does this reflect. The (we win you lose) from the NVICP. And, if the Idiot Judge is reading this, that made this stupid statement. “the parents are lying, to get money”

      You were right,someone was lying, but not to get money,they were all lying, to keep the vaccine injured children’s money !

      NVIC is not a good source of information about vaccines because their information inevitably over estimates the risks of vaccines and underestimates their benefits. Here is an example.
      In their discussion of the Hepatitis B vaccine, the NVIC opens by saying (http://www.nvic.org/vaccines-and-diseases/Hepatitis-B/diseasevaccine.aspx):
      • People at high risk for getting hepatitis B disease (which is transmitted by coming into direct contact with an infected person’s body fluids) are IV drug users, prostitutes, prisoners, sexually promiscuous persons and babies born to infected mothers. (1)
      • 90-95% of all hepatitis B cases recover completely after 3 to 4 weeks of nausea, fatigue, headache, arthritis, jaundice and tender liver. (2)
      That is partly true, but it’s incomplete. Before we gave infants the Hepatitis B vaccine, over 16000 children got Hepatitis B before the age of 10. Here is an article showing that: http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/108/5/1123.abstract?ijkey=25feaff68b0019247177b4eb7948534d532c8815&keytype2=tf_ipsecsha. According to Dr. Paul Offit, a vaccine expert, about half contracted the virus while passing through the birth canal of a mother who was infected. The other half caught the disease from relatively casual contact like sharing toothbrushes with someone who is unknowingly infected (hence the term the silent epidemic).
      When infants get Hepatitis B, they have 90% of getting the chronic version, which can lead to liver disease or liver cancer; if it’s acquired between the ages of 1-5, there is 30-50% of that.http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/pubs/pinkbook/downloads/hepb.pdf.

      In other words, infants and children don’t clear the virus in high rates, and thousands were getting it pre-vaccine – now this is virtually eliminated.
      The same page sites a 1994 report of the Institute of Medicine that expressed concerns – but ignores a 2013 report by the Institute of Medicine that concluded: “The IOM committee uncovered no evidence of major safety concerns associated with adherence to the childhood immunization schedule.” http://www.iom.edu/Reports/2013/The-Childhood-Immunization-Schedule-and-Safety.aspx.
      They suggest that the vaccine has a high rate of adverse events, but their reference is from 1994, before the vaccine was widely used in children. The CDC Pink Book – linked above – does not anything of the sort. An Australia summary of the risks also shows low risks: “About 1 in 15 will have injection site pain and 1 in 100 will have fever. Anaphylaxis [an allergic reaction – DR] occurs in about 1 in 600,000”. http://www.health.gov.au/internet/immunise/publishing.nsf/Content/D35CD18A3985212ECA2574E2000F9A4F/$File/quick_sideeffects.pdf.

      In short, the way the site presents the information is problematic.

      The NVIC’s Facebook page is even more open in accepting anti-vaccine claims and conspiracy theories. Here are a couple of posts from there:
      1. Repeating a story of a mother that claims the DTaP vaccine – which contains only individual proteins from the pertussis (whooping cough) bacteria – infected her child with whooping cough (individual proteins can’t do that): https://www.facebook.com/national.vaccine.information.center/posts/10202504289422250?stream_ref=10
      2. Calling a pediatrician and vaccine expert a “drug lord”: https://www.facebook.com/national.vaccine.information.center/posts/10151737230972931

        Thanks Dorit for all the comments about the National Vaccine Information Center. I urge EVERYONE to check out the website http://www.nvic.org and see for yourself if you find the information and facts there are helpful to you and your family in deciding if vaccination is safe and effective for you or not. And yes, check out the Facebook posts she also provides and tell me if you don’t also agree with the posts and the majority of comments. Remember, when you question vaccines you are among a large and growing group of informed individuals who are now saying “no” to vaccines.
