“The idea that vaccines are a primary cause of autism is not as crackpot as some might wish. Autism’s 60-fold rise in 30 years matches a tripling of the U.S. vaccine schedule.” ~ Jenny McCarthy
It’s been a long time happening, but is a new generation waking up to the dangers of inoculations at long last? Or is the theory of herd immunity for contagious diseases, (most famously for stamping out smallpox in 1977) a good thing and something that will be threatened if more parents are opting out of vaccinations for their children?
Herd immunity was introduced and has been pushed – even put out as mandatory in certain countries such as most of the U.S – since the 1930s as a way to eradicate viral and contagious diseases when a certain threshold of population are vaccinated and the disease is unable to spread to epidemic levels.
This theory works if most of the population is vaccinated and so is understandably pushed by medical professionals, (although it doesn’t apply to infectious diseases that are not contagious like Tetanus), as it also theoretically protects those who cannot be vaccinated such as very young children and those undergoing treatments for other diseases.
An increasing amount of ‘free-riders’; those who are not vaccinated but who are free-riding off the fact that most of the population is vaccinated, is causing anger in the medical community, leading to many to want to put extra pressure on those opting out and calling many parents for religious reasons or because they believe vaccines are unsafe to take more responsibility and join herd immunity at once.
There are even some states in America (most recently California) where kids ease of getting into schools may be affected and some employers discriminate against un-vaccinated adults meaning many experience difficulty getting a job without their vaccination certificates. Vaccinating has become compulsory.
Where the tide turns on this issue can usually be found with the ‘milder’ contagious diseases and the vaccine that protects against them – the MMR or Measles, Mumps and Rubella (German Measles) vaccine. In the UK children who had received a ‘one shot for life’ in the 90s were then receiving second and even third booster shots and then still contracting the disease.
Many believe that these children should naturally contract measles or mumps and that vaccination against these milder viral diseases are unnecessary due to the extra exposure to what is put into the vaccines such as Thimerosal which contains traces of Mercury and neurotoxic Aluminum when many mercury-containing vaccines were removed from the vaccination schedule.
When you consider the flu shot for children contains less than 3mcg of Mercury yet the safe amount is 0.5mcg, it begs you to wonder at how these levels are allowed in the vaccinations.
Where Thimerosal has been replaced by Aluminum which as a heavy metal has been found to be more harmful than Mercury and 2-month old babies are receiving a whopping 1,225mcg of Aluminum in all their vaccines combined (that is 50 times higher than the safe and advisable levels for that age group). A heavy metal that has proven to cause Autism.
And, there’s more. With Whooping cough, medically known as Pertussis, statistics show that the disease was on the decline BEFORE the introduction of the vaccine for it. Many diseases such as Cholera and Scarlet Fever have been on the decline due to improvements in public health, but we have been led to believe that the eradication of these viral and highly contagious diseases came about as a result of the introduction of vaccines.
What the statistics actually show, is that Whooping Cough has been on gradual decline since before the turn of the twentieth century in both the UK and the United States, and in sharp decline since the 1920s, almost 30 years before the vaccine for it was introduced in the 1950s.
So why are babies routinely vaccinated against this disease? And why, even when we have been told the safe levels of Mercury and Aluminum are over the limit in our children’s vaccines do they continue to be administered? Although the medical professional who originally questioned the MMR vaccine as leading to autism has been repeatedly discredited, a huge question mark still hangs over this early societal pressure.
The information out there can often appear ambiguous, the statistics correlating to adverse effects vague. Studies published by the NCBI (National Center For Biotechnology Information in the U.S) show that “Of a total sample of 946 children, ranging in age from 0 to 14 years (50.8% girls, 49.1% boys), 191 non-serious suspected adverse reactions were detected, representing 19% of the vaccinated children. Reactions to the diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis acellular and Haemophilus influenzae type b (DTPa + Hib) vaccine appeared in 43.4% of cases.”
And any word said against vaccines often is word of mouth – I know more parents whose children have had these adverse effects than those I have read about. Is this information being removed for the sake of a universal belief in herd immunity or is the anti-vaccine movement riding on the tail of any new age belief and conspiracy theory?
You have to decide that for yourselves, although with articles like these, there may be more to the argument that is being covered up than you might think.
Asking questions and considering each case as separate seems to be the best option for parents, and resisting this one shoe fits all approach that is administered and promoted in Medicine today.
And, if there is a darker side to vaccinations, is it solely to do with Big Pharma and a dysfunctional medical system raking in millions or is there even murkier corners to the debate, those to do with de-population and the numbing of the masses?
As far as the debate surrounding Bill Gates ‘mission’ in Africa that keep re-surfacing in the media, this could be less of a conspiracy theory than you might think:
“Kenya’s Catholic bishops are charging two United Nations organizations with sterilizing millions of girls and women under cover of an anti-tetanus inoculation program sponsored by the Kenyan government.”
With antibiotics known to strip the immune system of its ability to stand up for itself and vaccines having this huge question mark persistently above it, what is proving to really keep these medicines thriving among nervous mothers and brainwashed doctors could be the deadliest disease of all: fear.
With questionable statistics and unclear facts, perhaps vaccines do save lives and are valuable but aren’t as perfect as they’re made out to be. Whatever the ulterior motives, perhaps it’s time we learnt to trust our hunches a little more and opt for raising kids on better diets and teaching them how to treat themselves lovingly to avoid depression and bad lifestyles.
It’s either that or pump them with stuff that, let’s face it, we can never be entirely certain is completely clean, necessary, or in complete alignment with what nature intended.
