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……

Is the High Fructose Corn Syrup Ad Right – Is it Harmless?

corn-syrup

A few friends had mentioned seeing a commercial stating that High Fructose Corn Syrup was natural and harmless.  I finally saw it myself this weekend.  Wow, what I was most amazed about was the lack of information that was given.  I guess when you are trying to promote a unhealthy product, less is more.

If you haven’t seen it – a man and woman are picnicking and the woman is holding a red Popsicle.  She offers it to him and he declines because it has high fructose corn syrup in it.  When she asks him Why that is a ‘bad’ thing, he is unable to respond.  This is the crux of the commercial, he can’t verbalize WHY it has a negative effect on his health.  Because of this, she tells him that it is made from corn and it is natural.  Then finishing with something about it being OK in moderation.

The sad fact is unless you have a PhD in natural health and /or nutrition, it is hard to articulate what you’ve read and believe. I know… I still have trouble sometimes and it has been my main reading/hobby/interest/career for the last 5 years!

Having a massive interest in ‘natural’ food and ‘alternative’ health, spawned by my daughter’s miraculous recovery from JRA (Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis) using these methods, I’ve removed High Fructose Corn Syrup from my family’s diet.                                                                                                                                                                    picture-of-101-great-ways-improve-your-healththumbnail

I’m not surprised that this commercial is out… I mean the organic food movement is getting larger.  When I began eating all organic food years ago, there was not an organic piece of produce or anything in the ‘regular’ grocery store.  Now most stores at last have some sections designated for organic products.  Most of these labels state NO HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, which is one of the ingredients informed consumers look to avoid.  The corn syrup producers must be very unhappy about this and are trying to fight their demise.

After watching the commercial I thought about what I would have said when asked WHY is HFCS bad?

Well, what I know is that High Fructose Corn Syrup is unhealthy because it is a sweetener which raises insulin levels, which has negative effects on the body.  Just like it is a well known fact today that sugar does this and it is best to minimize or omit it from your diet.

So what makes HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP so bad?  You can read many different articles that give you the scientific breakdown of what HFCS is and why is is unhealthy.  To read specifics, check out – What is High Fructose Corn Syrup or  Six Reasons Why Corn is Making You Fat by Joseph Mercola.

But the overall picture is this.  High Fructose Corn Syrup was created by Japanese Scientists in the 70’s. (which back before this obesity rates were very low, coincidence?)

HFCS is now the prevalent sweetener used in the US for many reasons, but mostly money.  It is cheaper. (surprise surprise)

It isn’t natural because it is modified.  High Fructose Corn Syrup is made by adding enzymes to cornstarch to change the make up.

I could go on and on, but why?  You’ll forget and it really isn’t important.  Why? Because it is just as bad for you as sugar and is more prevalent in the American diet than sugar.  And no one is arguing that we need to cut back on sugar.

I mean every knows and doesn’t fight the fact that:        sugar2

Here is a list of ways sugar can affect your health:

So it seems kind of silly that this is the Pro’s list for High Fructose Corn Syrup –

The Pro-High Fructose Corn Syrup people, namely those involved in its sale, and hhmm money, say that –

Why My Daughter Will NOT get the Gardasil vaccine!

Along with ALL the other shots, now we are suppose to give our 11-year-olds one for HPV?!

At my daughter’s 11-year-old physical, the doctor told me that she would not even begin menstruating for another year or two.

So a few sentences later, the doctor tells me we need to vaccinate her for HPV, hepatitis, and tetanus.

Huh? We aren’t anywhere near menstruating, we aren’t alone with boys, but we need to protect her immediately from a sexually transmitted disease?!

Well lucky for me I’m a www.mercola.com newsletter subscriber – so I was informed. When the doctor asked why i didn’t want to vaccinate her – I launched into all that I’d read about the vaccine.

Such as:

  • There are more than 100 types of human papillomaviruses (HPVs). Of them, only 10-30 can cause cervical cancer.
  • These are very common viruses, and an estimated 25 million Americans have HPV infections. However, this is NOT cause for alarm because, as even the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states: “In 90% of cases, your body’s immune system clears the HPV infection naturally within two years.”

This is true whether the infection is the type that can cause warts or cancer.

Some Scary Facts About Gardasil

The long-term effects of using this vaccine on young girls is unknown, and in the short-term, many girls have already begun to suffer. Common side effects include:

  • Pain, swelling, itching and redness at the injection site
  • Fever
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Vomiting
  • Fainting

Severe allergic reactions, including difficulty breathing, have also been reported, as has:

  • Swollen glands
  • Guillain-Barre syndrome
  • Headaches
  • Joint pain
  • Aching muscles
  • Unusual tiredness and weakness

This is just some of the information from one of Dr. Mercola’s newsletters. To read the full article and many others click here.

Gardasil, which during the first year of its use has resulted in more than 3,500 adverse events, more than any vaccine in history. Gardasil contains a whopping 675 micrograms of toxic aluminum, and one of the scientists who developed it, Diane M. Harper, warned that the vaccine had never been tested on young girls before it was released for widespread use by them.

This is on top of the fact that she had adverse reactions to vaccines in the past – which I believe was a major cause of her diagnosis at 7-years-old of Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis. Gratefully, we were able to reverse it naturally with homeopathy, nutrition, etc.

You can read the story about this in the book “101 Great Ways to Improve Your Health,” available at GreenLifesaver.net. (Dr Mercola also contributed a chapter!)

After hearing that I had made an informed decision, the doctor told me that i would need to sign a waiver. Which i read out loud and laughed. It basically made me sign that “I was putting my child’s life at risk by not getting her vaccinated” How about that – I don’t see doctors signing waivers before they inject children saying, “I guarantee that this will save this child’s life and not cause any adverse reactions.”

So, instead of injecting her with a potentially debilitating concoction, I chose to sit down with her and talk. I showed her pictures of HPV warts on genitalia via the internet, what cervical cancer is and the repercussions of having it, spoke with her about protecting herself, and most importantly on why it is better to wait – hopefully a long time!

I like Dr. Mercola’s tag – to be ONE LESS GETTING the Gardasil Vaccine.

To Your Health!

WANT to Know the WHY’s & HOW’s of AUTISM?

These videos clearly state WHY children get Autism and HOW to reverse it….. So WHY have less than 7,000 people watched them?

Why is it that preventing or reversing our children’s suffering does not get the publicity it deserves?

Take a few minutes… you’ll be amazed at how simple the answers are….

i recommend watching all 4 of his videos to get the whole picture.

Please pass it on…. the more people learn, the more we do, the more children we help!

There are many other childhood diseases that I believe are linked to vaccinations as well.

My daughter fought Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis a few years ago. I tried to share my story through major magazines and publications and we were denied. Only the small and no-greed-seeking-truth-publications happily published it.

(This was just what we did to help her heal – not mentioning why we believed she acquired an auto-immune disease)

Although, I do believe that she suffered because of an adverse reaction to receiving 4 vaccinations at one time. Shortly afterwards she had a 105 degree fever that would not come down and the hospital could find “nothing wrong with her.”

I suppose they didn’t have a test called “4 vaccinations at once toxicity that wrecked her immune system.”

If you are interested in reading our story and what we did to heal… you can read it in 101 Great Ways to Improve Your Health,” available at www.GreenLifeSaver.net.
