Vaccinations are a controversial topic in this day and age. Whether you believe they are helpful and nourishing to the body or not, I always advocate education, education, education versus just following along with what everyone else is doing, including just taking your pediatrician/doctor's word for it. The effects of vaccines will affect the health of you and your child for the rest of your lives, whether negatively or positively. Therefore this decision should be done after careful consideration, research and education on both sides of the topic.
After many years of reading, research and clinical observation, the following are my top reasons to promote health and immune system versus suppressing it.
1. All Vaccines Are Brimming with Chemicals
Each and every vaccine is loaded with toxic chemicals, don't believe me, the proof is here.
This list along with many other resources is from the VIC (Vaccine Information Coalition). Vaccines contain ingredients such as MSG, antifreeze, phenol (used as a disinfectant), formaldehyde (cancer causing and used to embalm), aluminum (associated with alzheimer’s disease and seizures), glycerin (toxic to the kidney, liver, can cause lung damage, gastrointestinal damage and death), lead, cadmium, sulfates, yeast proteins, antibiotics, acetone (used in nail polish remover), neomycin and streptomycin. And the ingredient making the press is thimerosol (more toxic than mercury, a preservative still used in many vaccines, not easily eliminated, can cause severe neurological damage as well as other life threatening autoimmune disease). These vaccines are grown and strained through animal or human tissue, like monkey and dog kidney tissue, chick embryo, insect cells, calf serum, human diploid cells (the dissected organs of aborted fetuses), pig blood, horse blood and rabbit brain.
Can you imagine injecting all those chemicals into your body let alone a baby's body? I feel quite certain that if folks really knew the details of the ingredients in vaccines, they would be appalled and seek other therapies.
This table from the CDC website includes not only vaccine ingredients (e.g., adjuvants and preservatives) of most vaccines, but also substances used during the manufacturing process including vaccine-production media, that are removed from the final product and present only in trace quantities.
2. Buy One Get One: The Hidden Pathogen In Live Vaccines
Most folks love buy one get one, but in the case of pathogens in vaccines, my guess is you would rather pass. Sayer Ji explains this in great detail …
“Another problem is the use of euphemisms like ‘weakened' or ‘attenuated' to describe live-virus containing vaccines, implying that they are less virulent. One of the basic methods used to create these ‘weakened' vaccines is to serially passage the infectious agent through both and/or either animal and human biological fluids (e.g. bovine serum) and cells, giving the vaccine master seed stock an opportunity to become contaminated along the way with hidden disease vectors, including cancer-causing viruses.
Endogenous retroviruses, for instance, are RNA-based ‘fossil viruses' that incorporated their genetic material into the infected species' germline DNA many million years ago, and now harmless to that species, make up a significant portion of the total DNA sequences within most animal genomes. For example, the human genome is believed to be 8% endogenous retroviral in origin. These retroviruses are normally not capable of infecting other species, but during the vaccine manufacturing process where viable biological materials from different species are often cultured together, or undergo accidental admixture, they can become reactivated and infectious to another species. One of the most carefully guarded secrets within the history of vaccinology is that the original vaccine master seed stocks, whose components are either still being used to create live vaccines, or which have contaminated oral vaccines still be used today, contain retroviruses and other hidden pathogens. One reason for this terrible fact is that reverse transcriptase was not even discovered until 1970, so there was no way of knowing there was a problem when the original vaccines were being developed. There is also the case of the simian virus known as SV-40 which contaminated the original oral polio vaccines, and which is responsible for the infection of millions around the world with a cancer-causing virus, and which is still being passed down from parent-to-child today. See the Simian Virus 40 research here.” (source)
3. Mounting Evidence Proves Vaccines Don't Work As Promoted
The belief that vaccines are safe and effective is prevalent in today’s society. The vast majority of the medical, public and government communities have a well-established belief system in the benefits of vaccines without really knowing how effective they truly are.
- Recent research shows outbreaks of whooping cough (pertussis) are actually related to the pertussis vaccine itself. Eighty-one percent of 2010 California whooping cough cases in children under 18 occurred in those fully up to date on the whooping cough vaccine. Only eight percent of those stricken were unvaccinated. According to the authors, attack rates markedly increased three years after receiving the vaccine
- DTaP vaccine effectiveness was only 41 percent among 2- to 7-year-olds and a dismal 24 percent among those aged 8-12
- The US varicella vaccination program has been shown to have dramatically increased rates of shingles, while also failing to provide long-term protection from chicken pox. Researchers also concluded the vaccine is less effective than the natural immunity that existed in the general population before the vaccine
- A recent study claims the HPV vaccine has already conferred herd immunity on the population, despite the fact that less than half of American teens and young women have received the vaccine (and the vast majority of those have only received one-third of the recommended number of doses) (source)
“Despite the largely politically- and economically-motivated immunization agenda of the CDC, there is a growing body of clinical research establishing that vaccination does not effectively ‘improve upon' or ‘replace' natural immunity in the way that the masses have been made to assume; to the contrary, there are now hundreds of diseases that have been linked to commonly administered childhood and adult vaccines; and when we say “linked” we don't mean anecdotally, but in the biomedical literature itself [see the data set establishing the dangers of vaccines]. Additionally, the highly respected Cochrane Database Review repeatedly contradicts the CDC's claims by demonstrating that there is a conspicuous lack of unequivocal scientific evidence supporting their claim that influenza vaccines are safe and effective. Even worse, despite the hundreds of thousands who receive them every year, virtually no research has been performed showing them safe in children under two, the most vulnerable population.” Sayer Ji (source)
4. Great Deception of The Pharmaceutical Companies
Here are just a few drugs that were proven to be unsafe and harmful after they were left of the market so the drug companies could continue to make profits at others expenses.
Accutane (Isotretinoin) on the market for 27 YEARS
Use: Acne Manufacturer: Hoffman-La Roche 1982 to June 2009
Cause for recall: increased risk of birth defects, miscarriages, and premature births when used by pregnant women; inflammatory bowel disease; suicidal tendencies
Over 7,000 lawsuits were filed against the manufacturer over the side effects including a $10.5 million verdict and two $9 million verdicts. (source)
Darvon & Darvocet (Propoxyphene) on the market for 55 YEARS
Use: Opioid pain reliever Manufacturer: Xanodyne 1955 to
Nov. 19, 2010
Cause for recall: serious toxicity to the heart; between 1981 and 1999 there were over 2,110 deaths reported
The UK banned Darvon and Darvocet in 2005. The FDA was petitioned in 1978 and again in 2006 to ban the drug by the group Public Citizen. (source)
Vioxx (Rofecoxib) on the market for 5.3 YEARS
Use: NSAID (pain relief) Manufacturer: Merck May 20, 1999 to Sep. 30, 2004
Cause for recall: increased risk of heart attack and stroke; linked to about 27,785 heart attacks or sudden cardiac deaths between May 20, 1999 and 2003 (source)
Vioxx was prescribed to more than 20 million people even though the Merck had hidden dangers of this drug and doctors reports for years before the drug was pulled. Merck had agreed to pay $4.85 billion to settle 27,000 lawsuits by people who claim they or their family members suffered injury or died after taking the drug in November of 2007. (source)
It' s more financially viable for pharmaceutical companies to keep lying about the the safety and effectiveness of the drug and risk being sued and shelling out that payout due to the health risks imposed by the drugs. That 4.85 billion dollar payment is only part of Merck's yearly profit and does not compare to the long term BIG profits drug companies make year after year while they have a patent on a drug.
Mercury levels and Thimerosol vaccines
In early 2005, the Los Angeles Times obtained a memo from Merck revealing that, prior to the first public disclosure, senior executives were concerned about mercury levels in vaccinations containing a widely used sterilizing agent. The March of 1991 memo revealed concerns about 6-month-old children getting a mercury dose as much as 87 times higher than guidelines for the maximum daily consumption of mercury from fish. According to Dr. Maurice R. Hilleman in a memo to the president of Merck's vaccine division:
- “When viewed in this way, the mercury load appears rather large.”
The memo was prepared as U.S. health authorities aggressively expanded their immunization schedule by adding five new shots for children in their first six months. Many of these shots, as well as some previously included on the schedule, contained thimerosal, an anti-bacterial compound that is nearly 50% ethyl mercury, a neurotoxin. In 1999, federal health officials disclosed that many infants were being exposed to dangerously high mercury levels, following a review by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). However, the memo revealed that Merck was aware of the concern much earlier.
As of February of 2005, over 4,200 claims have been filed in a special federal tribunal, the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, by parents asserting that their children suffered autism or other neurodevelopmental disorders from mercury poisoning. Thimerosal has been largely removed from pediatric vaccines as a “precautionary measure.” (source)
The bottom line is that you cannot trust the FDA or pharmaceutical companies, they have proven that to us time and time again. For them profits outweigh safety every time.
5. Fully Vaccinated Children are More Chronically Ill Than Non-Vaccinated Children
In January of 2013 an on going study was conducted and proved that children who have been vaccinated according to official government schedules are up to five times more likely to contract a preventable disease than children who developed their own immune systems naturally without vaccines. (source) Aside from the study, what I've seen in my group of famliy and friends and in my 10 years of practice, is the children who are on track with their full vaccine schedules are the ones who suffer the most from allergies, colds/flu, ADHD, digestive issues, sensitivities, failure to thrive and other health issues.
6. Be Proactive and Boost Your Immune System Instead of Suppressing It
I highly recommend promoting your health. Your gut runs the show and the ecology dictates most of your immune system. Here are my proactive recommendations to keep your child and yourself healthy.
1. Strong Probiotics. Supports a balanced gut ecology which creates a strong and boosted immune system.
2. Fermented Cod Liver Oil. EFA's to help heal the gut, cells, tissues and is anti inflammatory.
3. High Vitamin Butter Oil. Contains A, D, E and K2, lots of minerals and other vitamins for a supported immune system.
4. Fermented foods and drinks daily. Contains beneficial strains of yeast and bacteria to ward off viruses, bacteria and other harmful organisms.
5. Grass fed bone broth . Liquid gold rich in vitamins and minerals. Help support bones, joints, teeth, skin, hair and healing and sealing of the gut.
7. What To Do If You Are Still Unsure About Vaccines
If you are still unsure about vaccines, wait and do nothing with vaccines. Once you vaccinate you can never undo the injection. A baby's delicate immune system is still developing and will continue to develop until into adolescence. At the very least do a delayed schedule which is much better than vaccinating a newborn or even a baby. Better yet, if you can commit to waiting until your child is in school, that is better than vaccinating as a toddler. And time will give you more opportunity to read, research and make your own informed decision. The longer you wait to inject those invasive adjuvants into the delicate developing immune system the better, if you ever decide to.
