(NaturalNews) In a stunning development for the ostracized, often criticized, vaccine safety awareness movement, cause celebre, and business mogul, Donald Trump raised concern about vaccinations on Monday, April 2, the anniversary of the fifth annual World Autism Awareness Day. Trump 'warned' Fox News viewers he "stronglybelieves that Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are linked to exposure to vaccines."1

During the interview, the tycoon revealed that a series of casual observations led him to the conclusion that '"monster" vaccinations cause Autism. The remark was probably a bombshell for pro-vaccine advocates including doctors, pharmaceutical companies, the government - and oh yes, Bill Gates. They have all fervently denied that observation -long a tenet of 'science-based research' - has anything to do with a medical outcome.

Trump acknowledged that speaking out against vaccines and the vaccine schedule is very controversial. But then he went on to state: "...I couldn't care less. I've seen people where they have a perfectly healthy child, and they go for the vaccinations and a month later the child is no longer healthy."

Trump's statement is a victory for parents who have long believed vaccines contributed to the neurological damage their children suffered post -vaccination. Although Trump is not against vaccines, he has spoken out before regarding his concerns about the increasing number of required immunizations in the childhood vaccination schedule.

Common sense would suggest that, if we are giving our children more than five dozen vaccinations from day of birth to age 18, we are over-vaccinating our children. Yet, authorities continue to insist that "more is better" when it comes to vaccines without providing adequate scientific evidence to justify that assumption.

If you follow the CDC's recommended vaccination schedule, your child will receive 49 doses of 14 vaccines by the time he/she is 6 years of age. And by the age of 18, the CDC recommends that children should have gotten 69 doses of 16 vaccines. 

Today, you'll pay $2200 to purchase all government recommended and mandated vaccines for a child (plus the cost of office visits) because the numbers of vaccines recommended for children have tripled in the past three decades. Sadly though, the short term financial costs to fully vaccinate your child according to the CDC schedule may actually pale in comparison to the costs to your child's long-term health.

The list of problems related to today's vaccines, and vaccine policy, is long and troubling:

1. Children not all biologically identical. The current one-size-fits-all approach to vaccination does not take into account differences among children's genetic profiles or immune responses based on factors such as age, weight, and overall health status.

2. Infant mortality rates between nations appears to be linked to the numbers of vaccinations given to babies before the age of 12 months. More vaccines may contribute to higher infant mortality.

3. Babies receive several vaccines at once—they may receive 8 vaccines or more simultaneously at a doctor visit (between 2 and 15 months of age). Vaccine "layering" may increase the risk for a serious vaccine reaction.

4. Vaccines have not been adequately tested for safety using methodologically sound scientific studies, so their long-term health effects are unknown. Moreover, the effects ofmultiple vaccines given together have not been adequately tested. And pharmaceutical companies have financed nearly all vaccine research to date, which introduces enormous bias.

5. Vaccines do not provide complete or permanent protection against infectious disease. For example, 75 percent of children who contracted chickenpox in a 2001 Maryland outbreak had been vaccinated against chickenpox. A high number of vaccinated persons also have been found in pertussis and mumps outbreaks.

6. Vaccines are not always sterile but can be contaminated with bacteria, viral fragments, and foreign human and animal DNA.

7. Vaccines may contain toxic additives (including aluminum and mercury), which can contribute to your child's toxic load.

8. Some vaccines are associated with a higher number of serious health problems, both immediate and delayed, yet healthcare professionals rarely report vaccine adverse events. Every year, more than 25,000 adverse reactions are reported to the government, including irreversible injuries and deaths. It's been estimated that this represents only about 1 to 10 percent of total vaccine reactions, which means that millions of people may have suffered vaccine reactions and injuries over the past few years.

9. Vaccines, say some researchers, may contain excitotoxins that disrupt your child's immune system (through microglial overstimulation) and damage developing brain structures, which raises his/her risk for a wide range of diseases, including autism, learning disabilities, and psychiatric disorders. New research gives evidence for a link between the high number of vaccines and the autism epidemic.

10. Many children receive even more vaccines than the vaccination schedule recommends. If you take your child to multiple health care providers or facilities, the odds are increased that your child may be given "extra" doses. Ten percent of children aged 19 to 35 months were found to have received extra vaccinations, according to a National Immunization Survey.

11. Preventing natural immune responses to environmental pathogens may not be in your child's best interest. Healthy children receive life-long benefits from naturally occurring immune responses.


Current Vaccine Policy Could Explain Our Higher Infant Mortality Rate 

In a recent report on Adverse Effects of Vaccines: Evidence and Causality, an Institute of Medicine committee of medical experts acknowledged a casual link between adverse health effects and vaccination, while confirming that there are too few methodologically sound studies published in the medical literature to make definitive conclusions about many other serious health problems linked with vaccination. This report was published after a review of more than 1,000 vaccine studies by the Institute of Medicine.

According to the most recent National Vital Statistics Report, more than 26,000 American babies born alive in 2009 died before their first birthday, which gives the U.S. a very high infant mortality rate of six infant deaths per 1,000 live births. In 1960, America ranked 12th in infant mortality among all nations of the world. In 2005, we had fallen to number 30.Today in America, there are more premature babies than ever before and more full term babies die before their first birthday than in most European countries.

The most recent study (2011) looking and infant mortality and vaccination is perhaps the most disturbing. It finds that developed nations with the poorest infant mortality rates, like the U.S., tend to give their infants more vaccine doses before age one. To put this into perspective, doctors give American babies 26 vaccine doses before age one, which is twice as many vaccinations as are given babies in Sweden and Japan. Is it really just a "coincidence" that the infant mortality rate is twice as high in America as it is in Sweden and Japan?

Natural Immunity is Superior to Vaccine-Induced Immunity 

The more vaccines are studied, the more apparent it becomes that proper vaccine studies are lacking, as vaccine expert and pediatrician Larry Palevsky explains. There is a major difference between natural immunity and vaccine-induced immunity. Obtaining natural immunity has far greater benefits.

When children are born, they develop natural immunity to a large variety of microorganisms that they breathe, eat, and touch. The immune responses by cells lining their airways, skin and intestines, are very important in creating "memory" and protection against the organisms they naturally come into contact with. That primary line of defense is a very important step in the maturation of your child's immune system—and it's bypassed when he/she gets a vaccine.

With vaccination, you are merely creating an antibody.

Vaccines do NOT impart long-term immunity because they don't create the kind of memory that occurs when you go through the process of a natural immune response. And natural exposure does not necessarily lead to infection—it is possible to obtain natural immunity without actually getting sick, if your immune system is robust. In fact, vaccines do NOT strengthen the healthy functioning of the immune system, but actually may weaken it.

Bombardment by Multiple Vaccines Can Damage Your Child's Developing Brain 

Dr. Russell Blaylock is a board-certified neurosurgeon and expert on vaccines and the nervous system. He may have discovered the central mechanism of how vaccines can contribute to the development of neurological diseases and has proposed a theory about the cause of autism spectrum disorders. Dr. Blaylock's theory can be summarized as follows:

Priming: Your child's immune system gets "primed" through exposure to an excitotoxin, such as a vaccine or an infectious agent, causing his/her microglia (special immune cells within the brain) to shift into "readiness mode."

Microglial Activation: Subsequent exposures to vaccines or other immune stresses over a relatively short period of time activate the microglia into full "battle mode," prepared to defend your child's body against what they perceive as an all-out invasion.

Bystander Damage: Excitotoxins and free radicals are generated, causing "bystander damage" in a runaway process that cannot be shut down. This leads to chronic inflammation and damage to brain tissues, including mitochondrial dysfunction, brain inflammation, seizures, and the other difficulties seen with autism.

Vaccines differ from natural infections in that vaccines can cause brain stimulation for very prolonged periods—the immune system in your child's brain is activated and re-activated by repeated exposure. Babies do not respond to vaccines in the same way as adults, even by one year of age. Immune over-activation can be especially damaging to a baby or young child's developing brain structures, such as the amygdala and limbic system.

This cycle is magnified by the administration of multiple vaccines at once. Many studies suggest this is very risky. Did you know that your 12 or 15 month old baby is allowed to get up to 13 vaccines at once under the CDC Immunization Schedule? How can this NOT be an assault to the immune system or developing brain? When was the last time YOU took 13 different prescription drugs at once without suffering side effects?

Certain children appear to have a higher risk for developing chronic brain and immune system dysfuntion including autism, than others, if their immune systems are more easily "primed." All it takes is the insult of ONE more vaccine, or ONE more infection, and the stage is set for regression into autism or development of other kinds of neuroimmune disorders like ADD/ADHD and seizures. One of the factors that can increase vaccine risks is if your child is particularly susceptible to immune dysfunction because of an imbalance in their gut flora..

Gut Bacteria May Increase Vulnerability to Vaccine Damage 

Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride found why some children are more vulnerable than others to developing autism. She discovered a close connection between abnormal gut flora and abnormal brain development—a condition she calls Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS).

Your child's immune system begins in his/her gut. Pathogenic microbes inside your child's digestive tract can damage their gut wall integrity, allowing all sorts of toxins and microbes to enter their bloodstream and then his/her brain. With GAPS, your child's digestive system becomes a source of toxicity, rather than a source of nourishment.

In her research, Dr. Campbell-McBride discovered that 100 percent of the mothers of autistic children have abnormal gut flora, which is significant because newborns inherit their gut flora from their mothers at the time of birth. Establishing normal gut flora in the first 20 days or so of life plays a crucial role in the maturation of your baby's immune system. Babies who develop abnormal gut flora are left with compromised immune systems, putting them at higher risk for suffering vaccine reactions.

If your baby has suboptimal gut flora, vaccines can become the proverbial "last straw"—the trigger that "primes" his/her immune system to develop chronic heath problems, remembering Dr. Blaylock's model.

The best way to prevent GAPS is by breastfeeding. and avoiding the use of antibiotics because they destroy the balance of gut floras and promote the growth of pathogenic bacteria. In addition to breastfeeding, I highly recommend the use of fermented foods and probiotics for your baby to help reduce his/her risk of GAPS.

Fortunately, it's possible to screen your child for GAPS before he or she is vaccinated, so that you can make a better-informed vaccination decision. Dr. Campbell-McBride describes the entire process in her book. It involves providing a detailed family health history to a knowledgeable healthcare provider, combined with stool and urine analysis, and these combine to give you a picture of your baby's gut health and overall immune status.

Dr. Campbell-McBride states:

"If your child has abnormal gut flora, we can assume that your child has compromised immunity, and these children must not be vaccinated with the standard vaccination protocol because they simply get damaged by it. They should not be vaccinated."

These non-invasive tests are now available in most laboratories around the world for, typically, $80 to $100 each. This cost is insignificant compared to the incredible expense of treating an autistic child, once the damage is done.

Recommendations for Preventing Vaccination Overdose 

Ultimately it is your responsibility to do the due diligence and research to decide for yourself which vaccines you want your child to have. My only caution is to warn you not to rely exclusively on government, drug company or medical trade association information as those sources will not disclose the full story about vaccine risks.

Please do an independent analysis by getting information from many sources, including organizations dedicated to preventing vaccine injuries and deaths, rather than from entities that make billions of dollars from promoting one-size-fits all forced vaccination policies. Please realize that right now in most American states, you have the right to opt out of vaccines. However, also be aware that vaccine exemptions are under attack in every state because the wealthy and powerful Pharma/Medical lobby is trying to take them away.

Below are a few recommendations that will help you prevent extra vaccine doses and minimize a vaccine risk for you or your child:

  • Keep a detailed record of the vaccinations your child has received and when. DO NOT rely on your doctor's office to do that for you. It is also a good idea to have your child's vaccination history on hand in the event there is a vaccine reaction.
  • Make sure that your doctors or vaccine provider reports vaccine adverse reactions to VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Effects Reporting System) or make a reaction report yourself.
  • Consider having your child evaluated for GAPS prior to any vaccination to help decrease vaccine risks.
  • Consider using an individualized vaccine schedule. Find a doctor to work with you to if you want to have fewer vaccines administered on the same day and/or allow more time between vaccinations.
  • Breastfeed your baby. Consider feeding him/her naturally fermented foods, rich in natural probiotics, as a regular part of his or her diet. Avoid antibiotics whenever you can.
  • I also encourage you to become involved with the NVIC, a non-profit charity that has worked for more than 30 years to protect your legal right to make informed, voluntary choices about vaccination for yourself and your family.
What You Can Do to Make a Difference

While it seems "old-fashioned," the only truly effective actions you can take to protect the right to informed consent to vaccination and expand vaccine exemptions, is to get personally involved with your state legislators and the leaders in your community.

THINK GLOBALLY, ACT LOCALLY.

Mass vaccination policies are made at the federal level but vaccine laws are made at the state level, and it is at the state level where your action to protect your vaccine choice rights can have the greatest impact.

Signing up for NVIC's free Advocacy Portal at www.NVICAdvocacy.org not only gives you access to practical, useful information to help you become an effective vaccine choice advocate in your own community, but when national vaccine issues come up, you will have the up-to-date information and call to action items you need at your fingertips to make sure your voice is heard.

So please, as your first step, sign up for the NVIC Advocacy Portal.

Connect with Your Doctor or Find a New One that Will Listen and Care

If your pediatrician or doctor refuses to provide medical care to you or your child unless you agree to get vaccines you don't want, I strongly encourage you to have the courage to find another doctor. Harassment, intimidation, and refusal of medical care is becoming the modus operandi of the medical establishment in an effort to stop the change in attitude of many parents about vaccinations after they become truly educated about health and vaccination.

However, there is hope.

At least 15 percent of young doctors recently polled admit that they're starting to adopt a more individualized approach to vaccinations in direct response to the vaccine safety concerns of parents. It is good news that there is a growing number of smart young doctors, who prefer to work as partners with parents in making personalized vaccine decisions for children, including delaying vaccinations or giving children fewer vaccines on the same day or continuing to provide medical care for those families, who decline use of one or more vaccines.

So take the time to locate a doctor, who treats you with compassion and respect and is willing to work with you to do what is right for your child.

TOXINS THAT COULD BEWILDER YOUR CHILD FOREVER WITH THIS LIFE-ALTERING CONDITION... Dr Joseph Mercola: "When I was in medical school close to 30 years ago, the incidence of autism was about one in 10,000. Today, the incidence has conservatively increased to 1 in 63. But according to a brand new South Korean study published in the American Journal of Psychiatry earlier this month, autism may still be grossly under-diagnosed. In the first large-scale study of its kind, the researchers evaluated students in both special needs and regular elementary schools in the Ilsan district in South Korea. The authors estimate that as many as 1 in 38 South Korean children have some form of autism, and that the results would likely be similar in other countries."

WARNING TO PARENTS: THIS VACCINE LINKED TO SUDDEN INFANT DEATH...

Vaccination commentary

by Phillip Day

"The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed, and hence clamorous to be led to safety, by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary." - H L Mencken

‘I wish we had known sooner what an awful thing vaccination is,' wrote Mrs A Kyles in a letter to the St. Louis Times, November 1926. Mrs Kyles's son had recently died of lockjaw following vaccination. He was given the shot on 15th October, developed lockjaw (tetanus) on 31st October and died one week later on 8th November.

On 7th October 1926, Elmer Perry, four-year-old son of Mr and Mrs John Perry of Newark, New Jersey, was vaccinated by order of the United States health authorities. Fifteen days later he fell sick. He was admitted to hospital on 27th October suffering from lockjaw. A few hours later Elmer died. ‘They killed my boy! They killed him!' cried the distraught father.

On 20th June 1926 Geraldine Creamer, age 4, of Peekskill, New York, died of lockjaw following vaccination during a smallpox scare. Which turned out in Geraldine's case to be ivy poisoning misdiagnosed as smallpox.

Emotional scenes indeed. But just freak accidents that should never have happened?

Another example of the public's blind faith in medicine can be found in its submission to immunisation. The use of vaccines to prevent and eradicate diseases is, of course, medical religion today and supposedly one of the great successes of modern medicine. Yet even these claims were questioned from the beginning. Dr Herbert Shelton wrote:

"The practice is so mixed up with the religious superstitions of various peoples, that its origin may be difficult for students of religious history to guess. In India, in Malaba and in other sections of the world, inoculation was mixed up with the worship of the smallpox goddess. Inoculation seems to have been nothing more than a superstitious rite designed to placate and appease the wrath of an irascible deity. People, who imagined all their sufferings were sent upon them because they had offended some of their gods or goddesses, originated the filthy rite to get the goddess into a good humor again." [1]

A Mr Porter, who was English Ambassador to Constantinople in 1755, wrote of the religious practice in his region concerning smallpox:

"It is the tradition and opinion of the country that a certain angel presides over this disease. That it is to bespeak his favour and evidence their confidence that the Georgians take a small portion of variolous matter and, by means of scarification, introduce it between the thumb and forefinger of a sound person. The operation is supposed never to miss its effect. To secure beyond all uncertainty the good will of the angel, they hang up scarlet clothes about the bed, that being the favourite colour of the celestial inhabitant they wish to propitiate." [2]

Immunisation is a term used to describe the cutting of the flesh and introduction of foreign matter, usually diseased, into the body to give the patient immunity from disease. Quite when and where the practice originated is uncertain, although many like Dr Shelton believe it started in India where so many of our superstitions were birthed, and spread from there to Africa and the West.

"From time immemorial the Negroes and Arabs of Nubia practised inoculation against smallpox. The Ashantees and the Moorish and Arab tribes in Northern Africa practiced arm-to-arm inoculation from ancient times. Savage tribes of the Upper Congo practiced it to prevent ‘syphilis'. The Baris of Lado inoculated themselves over the left breast. The Negroes in Senegal inoculated their children on the arms. The Moors and Pouls of Senegambia practiced inoculation against pleuro-pneumonia. A practice of this kind was in vogue in Berne, Switzerland in the 18th century.

The first record of smallpox seems to be in India, where also is the first record of inoculation, where the practice was in vogue over three thousand years ago. Dhanwantari, the Vedic father of medicine and the earliest known Hindu physician thought to have lived around 1500 BC, is said to have been the first to practice inoculation, and it is also stated that the Hindus employed a vaccine. For over a thousand years inoculation has been practised in China."[3]

Smallpox and Edward Jenner The official start to inoculation in Europe stemmed from 1774 when an English farmer, Benjamin Jesty, vaccinated his wife and three children with matter taken from sores on cows suffering the cowpox. He used a darning needle to cut into the flesh and transfer the pus from the sores of his diseased cows to his family. It was believed that those immune to cowpox would also be immune to the dreaded smallpox.

Notes on this bizarre experiment were taken by a doctor named Nash who subsequently died in 1785. Upon his demise the notes passed to Mr Thomas Nash, who was acquainted with Edward Jenner, the man given the credit for ‘discovering' vaccination. In 1789 Jenner inoculated his eighteen-month-old son with pus from swinepox lesions. The experiment was followed by other inoculations of other children. Vaccination was ‘born' (vacca: Latin for ‘cow').

An English writer, Arthur Wollaston Hutton MA, says of Jenner's qualifications:

"But his professional acquirements were but slender; his medical degree was the outcome of no examination or scientific work, but merely of a fee of fifteen guineas paid to the University of St. Andrews; while his other and more important distinction, his Fellowship in the Royal Society, was obtained by what even Dr Norman Moore, his latest biographer and apologist, is constrained to admit was little else than a fraud."

Dr Joyce Marshall writes:

"In England and Wales, free vaccination was provided for smallpox in 1840, made compulsory in 1853, and in 1867 orders were given to prosecute evaders. Therefore few escaped vaccination. Deaths from smallpox in England and Wales during 1857-59 were recorded at 14,244; in 1863-65, 20,059; and 1870-72, 44,840. Between the 1st and 2nd epidemics, there was only a 7% increase in population with an increase of smallpox deaths by 40.8%. During the 2nd and 3rd epidemic a 9% increase of population with an increase of smallpox deaths of 123% with an ever-multiplying number of vaccinations! Deaths per year from cancer in England and Wales between 1857-72 also began rapidly to increase."[4]

Jenner's work was lauded in spite of his vaccines not only not stopping smallpox, but appearing disastrously to increase the incidence of the disease. Today, immunisation's ‘victory' over smallpox is such devout medical lore, just to question it raises eyebrows at your wretched mental predicament. The simple fact is, says Dr Tim O'Shea, very little contrary information makes it into the press about immunisation, and there's rather a lot of it, and it's very well referenced.

"There are at least two sides to the vaccination controversy. One side we see all the time, in newspapers, magazines and on TV. The other side takes a little digging to uncover, but it's there nevertheless. When the reader has begun to do a little research, one plain fact will come into focus: all this information can't be true. Someone is definitely very wrong.

But there's a reality beyond the political and economic information wars being waged, and that's the reality of the children who don't know any of this is going on. They look in their parents' eyes with complete trust and don't expect any harm to come to them."[5]

It is believed by introducing a mild form of the microbe ‘contaminant' into the body to provoke the generation of antibodies, the body will gain immunity from that particular disease. Here is the Oxford Medical Dictionary's definition of vaccination:

"Means of producing immunity to a disease by using a vaccine or special preparation of antigenic material, to stimulate the formation of appropriate antibodies. The name was applied originally only to treatment with vaccinia (cowpox) virus." [6]

What are the dangers? Dr. Joyce Marshall has studied the history of immunisation and explains how disease and danger have always dogged the practice:

"The Philippine Islands provide us with the most striking information on record that with much vaccination there is also much smallpox. Since the taking of the islands by the US, every attention had been paid to the perfecting of sanitation. But not content with this, their Public Health Service has seen to the thorough, systematic vaccination of the population, adding thereto a considerable amount of serum inoculation.

An American paper published in 1922 reported ‘The Philippines have experienced three smallpox epidemics since the US took over the Islands; the first in 1905-06, the second in 1907-08, and the third and worst of all in 1918-19. Before 1905 (with no general vaccination) the case mortality was about 10%. In the 1905-06 epidemic, with vaccination well started, the case mortality ranged from 25-50%. During the epidemic of 1918-19, with the Philippines supposedly almost universally immunized against smallpox by vaccination, the case mortality averaged over 65%!'

These figures can be verified by reference to the Report of the Philippine Health Service. The statements are accompanied by the phrase, ‘The mortality is hardly explainable'. To anyone but a Philippine Medical Health Commissioner, it is plainly the result of vaccination. The highest percentage of mortality, 65.3%, was in Manila, the most thoroughly vaccinated place in the Islands; the lowest percentage of mortality, 11.4%, was in Mindanao, where, owing to religious prejudices of the inhabitants, vaccination had not been practiced as much as in most other parts of the Islands. Vaccination had been forced on Mindanao since 1918 in the face of this direct proof that their people were safer without it, and with the result of a smallpox mortality increase to above 25% in 1920.

In view of the fact that sanitary engineers had probably done more in Manila to clean up the city and make it healthier than in any other part of the islands, vaccination actually brought on the smallpox epidemic in spite of the sanitary measures taken to promote health. It is certain that over ten million vaccinations for smallpox were performed in the Philippines from 1905 to 1917." [7] [emphasis added]

Closer to home, Dr Herbert Shelton discovered that US authorities were blaming many tetanus (lockjaw) deaths on soil contamination, so he challenged them to give him lockjaw by ‘wounding me in a dozen places and rubbing the soil from the garden in every wound'. The US Commissioner of Health made a weak reply in the local paper and ignored Shelton's challenge.

Tetanus and encephalitis

... have long been laid at the door of immunisation. The data on this are impressive. In 1923, 1924 and 1925 the British government spared no expense to have everybody inoculated. Thousands of vaccinations were carried out. Immediately, a huge increase in encephalitis (lethargica) was observed.[8] In 1924, there were 6,296 cases of this illness and similar infections reported in England and Wales, which had a population of 38,746,000 at the time, or 162 cases per million of population. Shelton records:

"In Liverpool, with a population of 836,000, there were reported 257 such cases; or 306 cases per million of population. Liverpool was fifty per cent better vaccinated than the average of England and Wales, and had almost 100% more encephalitis. In 1924 there were recorded in England and Wales 5,039 cases of encephalitis lethargica, 397 of cerebro-spinal fever, 777 acute poliomyelitis, 83 of polio-encephalitis - a total of 6,296 cases, with 2,200 deaths, 2,520 permanently injured brains (insane), and 1,575 complete recoveries. The cases in 1924 were three times as great as the yearly average for the nine preceding years.

In 1922-23-24 the physicians of England and Wales cooked up a number of smallpox scares, causing 288,000 revaccinations. Extra vaccination was followed by this extra crop of sleepy sickness. A case of post-vaccinal encephalitis was reported in Ireland in 1930 in a baby boy of 10 pounds. He was vaccinated on May 3 and became ill on May 10, ‘being cross and very restless with vomiting.' Next day he was quiet and apathetic and on admission to the hospital his condition resembled tetanus.

In its report issued on 27th August 1928, the League of Nations covers 139 cases and 41 deaths in Holland. This resulted in Holland stopping compulsory vaccination during 1928-29. The total number of vaccinations in Holland in the first half of 1928 was less than one-third of those for the first half of 1927 and the deaths from encephalitis were reduced to less than one-third." [9]

US surgeon Charles Armstrong says in an article on post-vaccinal encephalitis:

"In so far as the age factor is concerned, the custom in this country of performing primary vaccinations at the sixth or seventh year would seem to predispose our population to the complication. Cases have, moreover, occurred. Wilson and Ford, and Fulgham and Beykirk have reported 3 cases in this country which were confirmed by pathological studies. Other possible cases based on clinical and epidemiological grounds have been reported from Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, Maryland, Illinois, California. Washington and the District of Columbia." [10]

'Vaccinia'

... was the name given to ‘disease by vaccination', and also to cowpox. It is interesting to examine the pathology of this very common complaint:

Symptoms: Vaccinia begins after inoculation with slight irritation at the site of vaccination. On the third or fourth day the eruption appears in the form of a red papule, surrounded by a red areola. On the fifth or sixth day the papule becomes a vesicle, being filled with a watery or clear substance with a distinct central depression (umbilication). By the eighth day the vesicle is perfected and then surrounded by a wide, reddened zone of inflammatory edema, which is the seat of intense itching. By the tenth day the contents are purulent (pus) and the vesicle has become a pustule. The surrounding skin is now much inflamed and painful. About this time the reddened areola begins to fade and desiccation sets in with the gradual formation of a thick brown crust or scab, which becomes detached and falls off about the twenty-first to twenty-fifth day, leaving an ugly scar.

The scar is at first red but gradually becomes paler than the surrounding skin, having a punched-out appearance and is pitted. The evolution of this pathology is accompanied with fever and constitutional symptoms, malaise, and enlargement of the adjacent lymph nodes or glands.[11]

Whooping cough

... has also been a potentially lucrative market for vaccine manufacturers. However, the same problems also dogged the developers in the case of this ‘disease':

Secret trials that crippled 55 babies

by Lucy Johnston

"Fifty-five babies died or were permanently brain-damaged during secret government trials to test a new vaccine for whooping cough, the Daily Express can reveal. The trials were conducted on thousands of pre-school children even though the drug was at a highly experimental stage.

Nobody told the parents that their babies could be at risk from the tests, which also caused convulsions and permanent disablement. Olivia Price from the Vaccine Victims Support Group said families now need proper compensation to help care for their loved ones.

She added: ‘This is unforgivable. The Government knew damage could be done - anyone with a baby should have the freedom of choice to decide whether or not they wanted their child to risk this. The fact that these parents were not told anything and their children were left so damaged is nothing short of abuse."

The trials, based in London, Bradford, Newcastle and Liverpool, were carried out by the Medical Research Council between 1948 and 1956. The victims are now in their 40s and 50s and still need round-the-clock care." [12]

Modern immunisation programs

These days immunisation is big business. There is hardly an illness that does not scare the pants off the public to the extent that they will sign on for just about any jab going to avoid going under. From DPT to Hep B, MMR to SARS, chook flu, swine flu, cervical cancer and AIDS, most are a human pin-cushion by the time they are twenty. In the opening chapters of this book, and also in the other Credence titles, The Truth About HIV and Wake up to Health in the 21st Century, industry's abuse of drug prescription and immunisation in Western nations is gone into at some length. In the Third World, however, more sinister moves have been underway; government-sanctioned programs which have caused appalling attrition and distress among certain ‘targeted' populations.

'The vaccine agaist pregnancy' On 21st January 1995, Sister Mary Pilar Verzosa RGS, of Pro-Life Philippines, Manila, wrote a letter to Judi Brown, President of the American Life League. The letter contained an alarm which has since been sounded across the globe. Part of the letter read:

"At present we are doing research on the tetanus vaccines that were given last March 1994 by our Dept of Health to women of reproductive age. Many of the women complained of bleeding (miscarriages) and allergies. We got alarmed recently when we received communications from Magally Llaguno that the vaccine in Mexico contained hCG.... If you have enough [research] papers, could your group do a press release via international press like Reuters so that all countries could be alerted?"[13]

The substance in question found in the vaccine was human chorionic gonadotrophin. Professional pharmacologist Judith Richter explains:

"hCG is released by the fertilised egg cell soon after fertilisation and continues to be produced by the placenta. It stimulates the corpus luteum in the ovary to continue to produce progesterone." [14]

From this, most would conclude the presence of hCG in a tetanus vaccine would actually benefit the female recipient. However, such hCG is not that of a pregnant woman's own embryo and causes antibodies to be formed that see the foetus as a foreign body, resulting in miscarriage. Thus hCG acts as a chemical abortion agent, and in the case of its use on girls of reproductive age who are not pregnant, causes prevention of pregnancy, thereby acting as a sterilising agent. According to researchers Dr Judith Richter, Dr George Isajiuw and Robert Whelan,[15] hCG also suppresses the immune system.

Sister Pilar wrote again three months later on 16th April 1995:

"We are in the midst of a court battle regarding the anti-tetanus vaccines used in the mass immunization of women of reproductive age.[16] The vials we tested proved positive for beta-hCG, while the women had antibodies against beta-hCG. This means their blood had built up antibodies against pregnancy. The women we tested had miscarriages, stillbirth or premature births. The government has all its forces against us - media is on their side and we don't know how the judge will turn...."

Johns Hopkins University, long a major player in the field of eugenics,[17] produced a report stating that as of 1990, 123 million women in developing countries had been surgically sterilised. Further, JHU was also under contract to the US Agency for International Development, according to the article ‘Coming Attractions: Phantom Sterilizations',[18] which quotes a report prepared by JHU on a proposed sterilisation program by vaccine. [19]

Sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS)

The following comes from a distraught grandmother testifying before the Committee on Labor and Human Resources (USA), regarding vaccination injury compensation:

"My name is Donna Gary. I am a constituent of Senator [Edward] Kennedy's from Massachusetts. Our family should have celebrated our very first granddaughter's first birthday last month. Instead we will commemorate the anniversary of her death at the end of this month.

Our granddaughter, Lee Ann, was just eight weeks old when her mother took her to the doctor for her routine check-up. This included of course her first DPT inoculation and oral polio vaccine. In all her entire eight weeks of life, this loveable, extremely alert baby had never produced such a blood-curdling scream as she did at the moment the shot was given. Neither had her mother ever before seen her back arch as it did while she screamed. She was inconsolable. Even her daddy could not understand Lee Ann's uncharacteristic screaming and crying.

Four hours later, Lee Ann was dead. ‘Crib Death,' the doctors said. ‘SIDS' (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). ‘Could it be connected to the shot?' her parents implored. ‘No.' ‘But she just had her first DPT shot this afternoon. Could there possibly be a connection to it?' ‘No. No connection at all,' the emergency room doctor had told them definitely.

In the months before Lee Ann was born, I regularly checked with a friend as to the state of her grandchild's condition. He is nearly a year and a half older than Lee Ann. On his first DPT shot, he passed out cold for fifteen minutes right in the paediatrician's office. ‘Normal reaction for some children,' the paediatrician reassured. The parents were scared but knew what a fine doctor they had. They trusted his judgment.

When it was time for the second shot, they asked, ‘Are you sure it's all right?' Their paediatrician again reassured them. He told them how awful it was to experience, as he had, one of his infant patient's bout with whooping cough. That baby had died.

They gave him the second shot that day. He became brain-damaged."

In 1975, when Japan raised the age to receive vaccinations from 2 months to 2 years, the incidence of cot death (SIDS) virtually disappeared in that country.[20] In 1991, the Institute of Medicine released a report documenting a causal relationship between the rubella vaccine and acute arthritis in adult women. During that same year, links were found between this same vaccine and chronic fatigue syndrome. In 1992, the World Health Organization came under pressure and suspended use of a new measles vaccine when it was found that children in Third World countries had an increased risk of dying from other diseases in the years following administration of this vaccine due to a suppressed immune system.

What is my right with immunisation?

Each member of the public must investigate the question of immunisation thoroughly. This is so their undoubted later position against immunisation can be maintained against provocation on the basis of fact rather than hype. Often parents are put in extreme positions of coercion, the doctor or relative saying, "Well, if you don't get young Peter vaccinated and he gets meningitis, on your head be it." Not having your child immunised because of concerns for safety is enough in some countries to have you put on a register and your child denied schooling ("Because your non-immunised child could cause other children to become ill and die, Mrs Hawkins" - which again beggars belief. If all the other children have been vaccinated, what's the problem?)

On the 15th February 2001, US media network NBC aired an episode of the popular medical soap ‘ER'. The storyline featured a family who chose not to vaccinate their children, and one child contracts measles and dies from complications while the doctors lash out at the mother, categorically denying any risks posed by the vaccine. The show provoked angry reactions from citizens, not least from the parents of children who had been maimed or killed by vaccination. Dr Joseph Mercola thinks there are other related storylines NBC might be interested in chasing down:

1. Serious adverse reactions to vaccines (I have a Microsoft Excel database of 25,000 adverse reactions to hepatitis B vaccine from the FDA and CDC Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), available on request).

2. The money trail: state agencies or school districts that get money for forcing children to receive vaccines, and conflicts of interest that compromise the ‘experts' who testify for mandates.

3. CDC stonewalling on requests for safety data on hepatitis B and other vaccines.

4. Parents or other caregivers jailed for murder when their babies die, possibly from a vaccine reaction, when there is no direct evidence that they ever abused the child in any way.

5. Parents whose children are excluded from school and reported to Child Protective Services because they have exercised a legal and conscientious objection to a mandated vaccine (even against a disease such as hepatitis B that is very rare in children and not ordinarily transmitted in a school setting).[21]

In the case of AIDS, the dastardliness knows no bounds. The pharmaceutical industry gears up to immunise millions of ‘vulnerable' Africans, Asians, Indonesians and Latinos for a whole host of opportunistic infections brought on by poor sanitary conditions and malnutrition, resulting in cholera, dysentery, malaria and TB. Leon Grigorski, Professor of the Athenian Faculty of Medicine, believes,

"We are ourselves creating the diseases and heading towards general cancerization and mental defectives through encephalitis, by the use of vaccines." [22]

In Joyce Marshall's view:

"Upon limiting access to information, the medical-industrial complex is able to maintain its authority mystique. Isolation is a well-known technique of brainwashing. Choices that challenge the position of the authority are limited and often times hidden. Because the intellect learns by comparison, when it is presented with only one point of view or other points of view are denigrated, it loses its capacity to discriminate and ultimately its capacity for fully rational thought." [23]

You have a choice

Parents do have a choice but often capitulate in the face of intimidation. When my daughter Anna was born, my wife Samantha and elected for a home birth with no doctor intervention. The health workers who subsequently visited were under no illusions about our position on vaccinations. One of them did attempt to spout the party line, whereupon she was given a copy of Health Wars and departed. And if Anna does contract measles? That's how the immune system learns, as we'll discover in a minute. Decades ago, the unsinkable Herbert Shelton was dismissive of the public's continued flirtation with immunisation. With the fury felt by many of his day on the subject, Shelton declared:

"...this criminal practice will end as soon as parents develop sufficient interest in the welfare of their children. At present, parents offer up their children on the altars of the [vaccination] goddess because commercial ghouls demand it, and hope that the children will not be greatly injured. If a child is invalided for life or is killed, the parents meekly accept the lying excuses of the scoundrels who maim and murder children for money, cry a little, and return to their movies and joy rides. Reader, do you know how Judas felt after he sold his Master for a few pieces of silver? If you have surrendered your child to be vaccinated after you learned the truth, you know how he felt. There is one great difference between you and him, however. Judas had decency enough to go out and hang himself." [24]

To be fair, there are many parents who wish to avoid immunisation but kowtow to avoid persecution. Medical community, friends and family can make it hard on parents who don't immunise ‘for the child's sake'. Today, however, pressure groups have formed, to which dissenters may join, receiving a measure of comfort in the knowledge that, despite the trials, they made a correct and caring decision. The following piece comes from the Irish Republic:

MMR - WHY DO SOME IRISH PARENTS REFUSE TO HAVE THEIR CHILDREN VACCINATED?

Kathryn Holmquist looks at the growing resistance to immunisation. Many of the parents who refuse to have their children vaccinated are informed, articulate and independent thinkers with a suspicion of the medical establishment. They do not want the State to dictate to them in the important matter of their children's health.

The State wants 95 per cent of children to be immunised against measles, but the growing anti-vaccination movement is going to make that near-impossible. In Britain, avid campaigners include the Allergy Induced Autism Group, Jabs, the Informed Parent Group and the International Vaccination Newsletter.

In the US, where vaccination is mandatory for school enrolment, websites disseminate information from vaccine dissenters. The Informed Parents Vaccination homepage claims that the US Food and Drug Administration's Vaccine Adverse Effects Reporting System receives about 11,000 reports of serious adverse reactions to vaccination annually, some one per cent (112 cases) of which are deaths from vaccine reactions. It alleges that ‘both national and international studies have shown vaccination to be a cause of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS)'. In the Republic, the Informed Immunisation Network was set up by parents who believe that they have a right to be fully informed about the pros and cons of vaccination. The network argues that the Department of Health gives only one point of view, in favour of vaccination, when it should be presenting a balanced picture.

"I am not an extremist but based on the information I have, I am happy with my decision not to have my children immunised,' says Anne Dunne, a member of the network." [25]

And in the United States:

HOUSE DEBATES VACCINE SAFETY 5th August 1999: "We can no longer keep our heads buried in the sand like an ostrich pretending there is no problem," said Rep. Dan Burton, as he waved a sheath of documents he said showed thousands of casualties over the last year. [26]

DOCTORS DO NOT PROPERLY EXPLAIN SIDE-EFFECTS RISKS PRIOR TO GIVING VACCINATIONS - 40% of US physicians did not mention risks of the vaccines they were administering, and 90% did not mention the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, according to a 2001 survey.[27]

LEADING AMERICAN NUTRITIONIST SPEAKS OUT AGAINST MEASLES, MUMPS AND RUBELLA (MMR) VACCINE - Dr Joseph Mercola states: "Children do not get sick and die from some bad, scary virus unless they have some predisposing factors. The major ones would be eating sugar and drinking soda and juice instead of water. I am absolutely certain that if any child dies in the US from measles complications, there are many more children who die from the disease who were vaccinated.

It is true that measles can be fatal. Perhaps 1 in 1,000 children who gets measles has complications, occasionally resulting in death. Measles is very rare these days but vaccinated children can get it too. Of cases reported in Colorado between 1987 and 1998 (time interval probably chosen to include the epidemic of 1989-90), 45 were in ‘exemptors,' but 137 were in vaccinated children (see Journal of the American Medical Association of 12/27/00). In most cases, the source of the infection was not known or stated, but it was probably not indigenous to the U.S." [28]

And the UK's Mail on Sunday headline candidly reported:

MEASLES JAB: NEW LINK TO BRAIN DAMAGE - "A Professor O'Leary, Director of Pathology at Coombe Women's Hospital in Dublin, provides compelling evidence of an association between infection by the measles virus and autism in children, many of whose parents said they developed the condition after they had been injected with Measles Mumps Rubella vaccine or MMR...." [29]

The Sunday Times reports:

MORE MMR GRIEF IN BRITAIN - "One third of the members of a British government committee that has advised that the MMR vaccine against measles, mumps and rubella is safe have financial interests in drug companies that make the treatment.

Twelve of the 36 members of the British Committee on Safety of Medicines have financial links with the MMR manufacturers, whose products they have given the all-clear on the basis of published research. Most members are academics or medical experts who specialize in pharmacology.

Five of them hold shares in the drug companies or are paid consultants, while another seven have received grants or sponsorship from them to fund academic studies or clinical trials.

All members declare their financial interests in a register and before meetings. The chairman then decides whether they can participate in discussions.

Campaigners against the MMR vaccine, who fear it causes autism or bowel disease in children, claim the financial links between drug watchdogs and the pharmaceutical industry could lead to a conflict of interest.

While the government and most of the medical establishment argue that the vaccine is safe, research by Dr Andrew Wakefield, of the Royal Free Hospital, London, claimed the trials leading to the MMR vaccine's adoption in Britain were too brief to detect the feared complications." [30]

And also...

WHY JAPAN BANNED MMR VACCINE - "Japan stopped using the MMR vaccine seven years ago. Japan is virtually the only developed nation to turn its back on the vaccine. Government health chiefs claim a four-year experiment with it has had serious financial and human costs.

Of the 3,969 medical compensation claims relating to vaccines in the last 30 years, a quarter had been made by those badly affected by the combined measles, mumps and rubella vaccine, they say.

The MMR was banned in Japan in 1993 after 1.8 million children had been given two types of MMR and a record number developed non-viral meningitis and other adverse reactions were recorded"." [31]

But wasn't the MMR vaccine tested? PROMINENT SCIENTISTS ASSERT MMR VACCINE SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN LICENSED IN THE UK - According to The London Sunday Herald, many prominent British researchers are now convinced that the controversial MMR shot should never have been licensed in the UK.

"This shocking assertion is to be made in an upcoming report to be published in the journal Adverse Drug Reactions, the paper reports.[32] This is, of course, assuming that UK health officials are not successful at preventing the publisher from printing the article, as they have reportedly attempted to do.

Several senior clinicians, including a former senior professional medical officer at the UK Department of Health, argue that the MMR should not have been licensed back in 1988 because there was insufficient evidence of its safety and the decision to license it was ‘premature'." [33]

Dr Peter Fletcher, senior medical officer for the UK Department of Health in the early 1980s, concurs with much of the criticism surrounding MMR:

"Being extremely generous, evidence on safety was very thin; being realistic there were too few patients followed up for sufficient time. Three weeks is not enough, neither is four weeks. On the basis that effective, monovalent vaccines were available, the Committee on the Safety of Medicines could be confident that delay in granting a license would not result in a catastrophic epidemic of measles, mumps and rubella.

Caution should have ruled the day, answers to some important questions should have been demanded and encouragement given to conduct a 12-month observational study on 10,000-15,000 patients and a prospective monitoring program set up with a computerized primary care database. The granting of a product license was definitely premature." [34]

The Sunday Herald reports a source from the Adverse Drug Reactions journal declaring:

"All the reviewers conclude that something needs to be done about MMR and that there is a case to answer against the vaccine. The first thing this paper says is that the MMR vaccine should not have been licensed. There was not enough evidence of the safety to license it. The view is that the evidence was inadequate."

Dr John Griffin, editor of the Adverse Drug Reactions journal, was irate over a letter he received from a government health official concerning publication of the MMR paper:

"I think this is an attempt to put pressure on me not to publish the article and I resent that. We are going to publish the article. We are not going to be deterred by threats. I think putting pressure on us not to publish is despicable." [35]

Know the vaccine's contents

The plain fact is, vaccines kill and maim regularly yet very little is known by the public about vaccine methodology or what goes into the cocktail. Hepatitis B vaccine contains mercury (thimerosal), aluminium and formaldehyde. The pertussus or whooping cough vaccine contains the same ingredients. Other components found in common vaccines include parts of aborted foetuses, dog and monkey kidneys, ethyl-glycol and carbolic acid (a full list of these fillers is contained in the end section of this book). These vaccines are then grown and strained through cultures, which include monkey kidney, chicken embryo, embryonic guinea-pig cells and, in the case of rubella, Hepatitis A and chicken pox, dissected organs of aborted foetuses. One concerned vaccine researcher remarks:

"Would you mix this and feed it to your child from a bottle? Yet the government requires it to be injected with a syringe directly into our children's bodies." [36]

To date, the US National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program or NVICP, established in 1986, has disbursed in excess of $1 billion in injury awards to vaccine recipients and there are quite literally thousands of cases pending. This despite the fact that former Health and Human Services Secretary, Donna Shalala (Clinton administration), narrowed the definition of vaccine damage to such an extent that only immediate and severe reactions qualified. Seizures, disorders, brain damage, ataxia, paralysis, learning difficulties and deaths occur days or weeks after vaccination have been excluded. Added to this, doctors have little incentive to report themselves to the government's Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System or VAERS, prompting former director of the FDA David Kessler to confess that ‘...only 10% of vaccine injuries are ever reported.' [37] Lisa Jillani, of People Advocating Vaccine Education, has observed the growing number of children now suffering from ‘psychiatric' disorders:

"So the injuries can even conservatively amount to tens of thousands of children while doctors continue to diagnose and treat mysterious new illnesses and maintain the ‘one in a million' adverse reaction myth taught in medical schools." [38]

A front-page article appeared in the UK Sunday Observer on 27th August 2000. The Observer obtained documents revealing that the UK government had attempted to cover up 11 deaths of children as a result of the meningitis vaccine. The document also revealed more than 16,000 adverse reactions to the meningitis jab had been reported by GPs since the nationwide campaign began the previous year. With the UK Department of Health admitting that only 10-15% of adverse reactions are ever reported (and those only from ‘immediate and severe' reactions), the true number of damaged children is doubtless far higher.

How can my family avoid disease without vaccinations?

A good question with an obvious answer. The propensity for getting ‘a disease' depends entirely on the strength and effectiveness of your immune system. This in turn is dependent on optimised vitamin D levels, a decent, organic diet with a high percentage consumed raw, adequate hydration and low stress. With children, the importance of breast-feeding cannot be understated. A child is born with a sterile digestive tract. The gut flora, which will comprise 80% of the immune system, is introduced via diet and the breast-feeding process. In all his wisdom, the Doctor Within sets up the incredibly complex interaction between symbiotic gut flora from the mother's milk to provide the child with his or her life-long defences. This process is not completed until the beginning of the third year and cannot be adequately carried out using milk from another species! Clearly, if your doctor insists on violating your child's immune system by recommending ‘baby formula' along with all manner of toxic vaccine chemicals in the guise of ‘doing your baby a favour', this can have severe consequences, as this chapter has pointed out. Your child doesn't know it yet, but they depend on you to make decisions that will not damage them irreparably.

Notice how vaccination is yet another example of how evolutionary biochemists refuse to surrender their sovereignty to the power in the molecules. Contracting minor childhood ailments such as measles and mumps used to be a way for the immune system to learn and generate lifelong immunity. Today, this is forbidden in many areas and parents often suffer persecution even by other loved ones in an attempt to ‘bring them into line'. These persecutors often back off, however, if they see that the parent is properly educated.

Summary

Thankfully, opposition to the mandatory use of vaccines is mounting, not least because there has never been any impartial and empirical evidence demonstrating even remotely that immunisation does any good whatsoever. In the short-term, while the political chess-game is played out, there is much we can do to avoid the misery and pitfalls such errors bring to our lives. We can read up on the subject and discover natural ways to keep ourselves and our loved ones healthy and safe from such contaminants. If vaccination is an issue for you, make up your mind based on all the evidence. There are many dependable books on the subject, including Steve Ransom's Wake Up to Health in the 21st Century, published by Credence, and the sources quoted in this chapter.

Kids get measles from the measles vaccine!

by Dr Tim O'Shea www.thedoctorwithin.com

Now this isn't from some wacky anti-vaccine blog. This is coming from the MMWR which is the US Centers for Disease Control's own weekly publication. Here are two examples showing that we've always known that vaccinated kids can contract measles from the MMR vaccine itself. The first instance is from Illinois, in which 17 high school students came down with measles even though 99% of the high school got the MMR vaccine.

The other example is almost identical. It took place at a Corpus Christi Texas high school where 14 students came down with measles after 99% of the student population received the MMR shot. And that's from the New England Journal of Medicine.

Now here's the part that glib journalists with their AA degrees always leave out. Before 1978, measles was a minor, self-limiting, immune-building disease of childhood. You wanted your child to get it because they would have lifetime immunity. Then in 1978, the MMR shot suddenly became part of the vaccine package for all kids. Three doses. Even though the incidence was down by 90% by then.

After a decade or so, many incidents like the two cited above began occurring all over the country - groups of kids who obviously got measles from the shot itself. They got the exact disease the shot was pretending to prevent. Such examples continue to the present.

So what does this mean?

First it means the vaccine doesn't really work. It doesn't provide the supposed immunity from measles that they're advertising.

Second, we have the principle of the atypical disease. That's the term scientists use to describe a disease caused by vaccines. Remember, in all vaccines they never use the actual bug that is associated with the wild disease itself. Instead they use a laboratory mutation of the natural microbe which they make much more reactive, provoking a much stronger immune response. And that's what's in the vaccine. So through mass vaccination with mutated pathogens, we are creating brand new diseases that would have never evolved in nature; atypical versions of the original disease.

So that's what we're seeing in these outbreaks. Man-made disease. The problem is, the atypical versions are much more dangerous than the original, mild version, with far higher rates of death and complication. Everyone knows that adult onset measles is a potentially much more serious disease than the original childhood version.

Worse yet is that the adults who got the original, mild, childhood version of measles may not now be immune to the brand new Frankenstein version that has been created by our injudicious policy of mass vaccinating for a disease that had been part of building a child's normal immune system for decades. Get the picture?

All for marketing -- a $billion a year for MMR shots.

With today's statistics, it's getting to where your child has a better chance of getting measles from the vaccine than going unvaccinated.

The last point is this. The unvaccinated have signed exemption forms. That's the agreement that if a disease breaks out in school among the vaccinated population, you agree to keep your unvaccinated child at home. Why? So you won't sue them for your unvaccinated kid getting a disease from their vaccinated kids. See how confident they are in their vaccines? Exemptions are all about liability.

Actually, this works out well for the exempt, unvaccinated kids. You want to keep kids out of school when these outbreaks occur because when the vaccinated kids get this atypical version of measles, it's a much more serious disease than the old fashioned version. You don't want your unvaccinated child to be around these diseased kids, who are true reservoirs for disease.

For those who still can't make up their minds about whether vaccinations are beneficial for kids or not, Sunil Sharma can't believe his twin daughters Avika and Anika are dead.

MSN NEWS reports: The textile merchant from Ghaziabad, India, had never imagined that a measles vaccine at a private nursing home in the town would take the life of his nine-month-old daughters. Sunil claims his daughters died minutes after being administered the vaccine, usually given when a baby is nine months old, at Divya Nursing Home.

Akhil Sharma, an uncle of the twins, said: "I took them for the vaccination around 6 pm on Wednesday. They were given the vaccination around 7.15 pm. In 15 minutes, the children started breathing heavily. We rushed to the doctor who gave them oxygen but the babies had died by them. Still Dr Satyaveer Singh referred them to Sarvodya Hospital." "My wife fainted on hearing about the death of our daughters. She could not believe the news," said Sunil, who stays in Swarnjayanti Puram. The family soon gathered at the hospital and sought an explanation.
