Swine Flu vaccine….safe? USA – Vaccine obsessed?

vaccine

I know… all the pro-vacciner’s are probably already pissed from   the  title.

I’m not here to say whether they are good or bad.

Although personally I feel there are entirely too many given to our children.  ESPECIALLY when they are given 3 and 4 shots at once!

I feel this way through personal experience when my daughter received 4 at once and within a week developed a 105 degree fever.  After a work up in the emergency room I was told “there is nothing wrong with her.”

After this she developed Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis.  Huh, coincidence.  I think not.  Even medical doctors today who are for vaccine’s have no qualms about her NOT getting anymore – which says something in this day and age.

A friend of mine recently took her son to the doctor and they wanted to give him 3 shots at once.  When she heeded my advice  to

  • have one at a time
  • months apart
  • and when he was healthy.

Well her previously well-mannered doctor had a fit. (talking down to her with irritation and annoyance)

So WHY is it that doctors are so angered by parents wanting to be “safe” in this day and age of extraordinary amount of diagnosis – autism, ADHD, bipolar, and many more?

I mean – these were so rare when i was a kid. And yes they were rare, even if a few were undiagnosed.

No i don’t believe that vaccines are evil. I believe too many, to soon, together, along with dangerous preservatives is wrong.

But put together the so called food most people eat these days – artificial this and that – nothing alive like fresh fruits and veggies.  (Even those are so much less healthy because of overworked soil and pesticides) Along with the amount of vaccines we receive and pollution.

Mix it all together and what do we get – tons of childhood illness that were almost unheard of 30 years ago.

So – it now seems that the powers that be who push this ridiculous amount of vaccines are even scaring some of the medical community.  Take a look at this -

Contains Thimerosal? That lovely mercury preservative so disputed these days….if you still haven’t gotten clear on what it is and why it is so bad, here you go….

Thimerosal

Thimerosal is the preservative of choice for vaccine manufacturers. First introduced by Eli Lilly and Company in the late 1920s and early 1930s, the company began selling it as a preservative in vaccines in the 1940s. Thimerosal contains 49.6 percent mercury by weight and is metabolized or degraded into ethylmercury and thiosalicylate. Mercury, or more precisely, ethylmercury, is the principle agent that kills contaminants. Unfortunately, mercury also kills much more than that.

The Department of Defense classifies mercury as a hazardous material that could cause death if swallowed, inhaled or absorbed through the skin. Studies indicate that mercury tends to accumulate in the brains of primates and other animals after they are injected with vaccines. Mercury poisoning has been linked to cardiovascular disease, autism, seizures, mental retardation, hyperactivity, dyslexia and many other nervous system conditions. That’s why the FDA rigorously limits exposure to mercury in foods and drugs. Some common sources of mercury include dental amalgam fillings, various vaccines and certain fish contaminated by polluted ocean waters.

The toxicity of mercury has never been in question. The real question is precisely how much mercury-laced thimerosal is toxic, and what are the possible consequences for our children at low doses?

Eli Lilly and Co. supposedly answered this question for us back in 1930. Concluding thimerosal to be of “a very low order of toxicity . . . for man,” the company hired its own doctors to perform thimerosal experiments in Indianapolis City Hospital on meningitis patients during a severe outbreak in 1929. This 60-year-old evidence was still quoted on the company’s brochures as recently as 1990. Andrew Waters, who is involved in a lawsuit against Eli Lilly, claims that most critical studies on the toxicity of thimerosal were suppressed by the company until now.

Banned around the world, but not in the United States

That might explain why thimerosal was eliminated in many countries 20 years ago. In 1977, a Russian study found that adults exposed to ethylmercury, the form of mercury in thimerosal, suffered brain damage years later. Studies on thimerosal poisoning also describe tubular necrosis and nervous system injury, including obtundation, coma and death. As a result of these findings, Russia banned thimerosal from children’s vaccines in 1980. Denmark, Austria, Japan, Great Britain and all the Scandinavian countries have also banned the preservative.

Eli Lilly stuck to its “scientific” facts, but the truth began slipping between the cracks in 1999. After the number of immunizations rose to 12 to 15 per child, the public finally became privy to the possible dangers of thimerosal. One 1999 study revealed that some infants, due to a genetic or developmental factor, lack the ability to eliminate mercury. Trace amounts of mercury in these infants, when accumulated over several vaccines, could pose a severe health risk. Some vaccines, such as vaccines for hepatitis B, contained as much as 12.5 micrograms of mercury per dose. That’s more than 100 times the EPA’s upper limit standard when administered to infants.

Why is mercury toxic in all ways except through vaccines? Enough said.

But…

The other thing that confuses me is this – if our vaccines are so great and our health care powers that be are so enlightened then why -

According to the World Health Organization,
those of us in the USA have the most
expensive health care in the world with
results at 72nd.

HHHmmmmm……

    Let me begin by saying that I work professionally with children with Autism Spectrum Disorders.

    Firstly, According to the CDC: “Thimerosal has been removed from or reduced to trace amounts in all vaccines routinely recommended for children 6 years of age and younger, with the exception of inactivated influenza vaccine (see Table 1).” The flu vaccine is not a required vaccine.

    Secondly, I would like to know which vaccines fall in the ‘too many’ category, and you feel that could be delayed and/or eliminated from the stack of 4 shots given to children.

    Thirdly, Autism, ADHD, bipolar and “many more” have absolutely zero link with vaccines, according to the CDC and a recent court ruling.. During the trial, the judge asked the plaintiffs to prove beyond a hair of a doubt (meaning 51% certainty) that vaccines caused their childs autism. They couldnt do it and lost the case. Does it mean its impossible? Of course not. Does it mean a more likely cause is afoot? Most likely. http://www.cnn.com/2009/HEALTH/02/12/autism.vaccines/index.html

    And lastly, speaking about your daughers JRA. Does genetics play a factor? You didnt even mention that in your post.

    I just love how everyone is so quick to blame vaccines and withhold or ‘delay’ them from their children. Have you ever the skin of someone who had rubella? I have.That was just a parent who just didnt want to vaccinate her children and because they lived in Canada, they had that choice. I look forward to your reply. I normally just love reading your blog.

      Hi Alisha, thanks for stopping by.
      I’ll answer you in order.
      First, from the info. I’ve read – thimerosal is till present in the flu vaccine (which even though not required is offered strongly for children without disclosure of the content of thimerosal as well as in the Tetanus. If that has changed – great. (But I never said in my post that any other vaccines contained Thimerosal – i was speaking about the swine flu vaccine in particular – which Does contain it.) Just disclosing for those folks that didn’t know.

      Secondly, along this line – I’m not going to argue about the impact of Thimerosal. You can post what the CDC says and many other sources and in turn I could do the same with highly respected medical experts that are opposed to Thimerosal and believe the connection. What is in my blog about mercury and its toxicity is fact. If you or anyone else want to believe it does not have any adverse health risks – feel free to consume it or inject your children with it. I will choose not to.

      Third, my referral to ‘too many vaccines’ is a personal choice. Many medical experts are in alignment with the thinking that shots should be spread out as outlined in my blog. My personal experience has led me to avoid most. Whether you agree with that or not is your choice. Having seen the devastating effects it can have – I’d rather be safe than sorry. And although no family history of rheumatoid arthritis could be found in my daughter’s families – obviously there was a genetic factor. As i stated in my blog – i don’t believe it is one thing causing childhood diagnosis. However, I do believe that with a genetic predisposition, and environmental factors, it can be exacerbated by the toxicity of ingredients in vaccines. That is my opinion – that’s it.

      Lastly, I find it amazing that you can say there is Zero link with vaccines – although i guess we are all entitled to an opinion.

      As you recall in my post – most people are interested in a more moderate approach – not eliminating them completely. I think it is wonderful that people are stepping up and getting involved in parenting and making decisions about their child’s health. There is obviously a problem or our children wouldn’t be fighting so many illnesses that were rare 30 years ago. It would sadden me if in light of our times – parents blindly followed doctors and governments advice without educating themselves. I am glad i did. My daughter is now a healthy 13 year old who is negative for arthritis because i did this.
      All my best,
      Amy

    Have you seen this youtube video?

    There are three parts to it and it’s quite interesting! Keep up the good work! It’s great to get all the information we can so we can make informed decisions about what is best for our children.
