Interim results in the latest poll in our Underground Knowledge discussion group on Goodreads.com  reveals there’s considerable uncertainty over the safety of child immunizations and vaccines.

In response to the question Do you believe child immunizations/vaccines are for the most part extremely safe as per official statements from mainstream medicine and Big Pharma? well over half our poll respondents to date say they don’t believe that or they’re unsure.

Interim poll results show 41% say Yes; some 38% say No; and 21% say Unsure.

Fellow ‘Undergrounders’ (group members) include doctors, nurses (and former nurses), lab technicians, pharmacists, scientists, a neurologist and other medical professionals – and a number of those members are contributing to the poll. Some of the comments make for interesting reading.

Here’s what the aforementioned American neurologist (name withheld) has to say on the topic:

With the recent talk of vaccinations highlighted during the Republican Presidential debates, it definitely highlights the concerns that linger among us parents about having our children vaccinated. I must preface this post (before getting to my point by discussing a recent article in the neurological literature) by stating that I am a neurologist with 5 children and all were fully vaccinated. That said, I must admit that the vaccinations were spaced apart further than that which was recommended by the pediatrician.

The only reason my wife and I were adamant about altering the dosing regimen was that we routinely witnessed an alteration in our childrens’ mental status after they received a barrage of shots. I would like to say that flu-like symptoms or low-grade fevers precipitated the changes. However, there were no signs or symptoms of any physical reaction to the vaccines. What did change on occasion was their personalities, sleep habits and at times cognition. It was scary to witness, but we were relieved when it resolved. As we began to split up the vaccination shots for our younger children, these neurological sided effects abated.

The reason why I discuss my own experience is that the medical system ardently insists that autism is not related to vaccinations. However, a recent medical journal I read does raise the awareness about the possible neurological sequela that can occur after one of these shots. A July 1 article in Science Translational Medicine discussed the link between Pandemrix, a vaccine used during the H1N1 flu pandemic, and 1,300 reported new cases of narcolepsy which occurred after receiving the shot. The article described how antibodies that formed as a result of the vaccine crossed the blood-brain barrier and attacked the sleep regulation portion of the brain. As a result, these people were left with narcolepsy. The process is called molecular mimicry. It has already been documented as the cause of different neurological diseases that result from the body’s immunological response to certain cancers, infections or exposures.

If a vaccine can cause narcolepsy, it definitely calls into question whether vaccines could also initiate other neurological problems such as autism. Though the question remains, the overall benefit of vaccines to society as a whole does outweigh the risks. My only recommendation to the medical establishment is to reconsider both the dose of the vaccine and the timing they are given, to reduce any of these possible side effects.

It’s worth noting that not all who are opposed to the vaccine law reforms being considered in California, the US and elsewhere in the world are against child immunizations. As we point out in our new book MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX: The $ickness Industry, Big Pharma and Suppressed Cures, some (anti) campaigners have either had their own children vaccinated or have advised other parents to vaccinate, but also argue that making immunizations mandatory is unconstitutional and against citizens’ medical freedom.

Further to our recent blog on this very subject, here’s another excerpt from Medical Industrial Complex:

Are those who do not vaccinate their own children putting other children, and society as a whole, at risk?

We cannot confidently answer that. Nor, it appears, can anyone. Not with any degree of certainty.

Added to the difficulty of sourcing accurate research and reliable statistics is the problem of widespread corruption highlighted in earlier chapters. Sad but unsurprising in any industry as profitable as Big Pharma.

A February 15, 2015 article about vaccines, published on the Collective Evolution website and written by Arjun Walia, nicely summarizes a global trend. Headlined ‘The Top 6 Reasons Why Parents Are Choosing Not To Vaccinate Their Kids’, the article quotes Walia as saying, “More and more parents around the globe are choosing to opt out of vaccinating themselves and their children”.

The article continues, “As a result of this trend that’s been gaining more and more momentum, a harsh response has come from the ‘pro-vaccine’ community-criticizing parents for their decision to not vaccinate. At the end of the day it’s not really about ‘pro-vaccination’ or ‘anti-vaccination,’ it’s not one ‘against’ the other or about pointing fingers and judgement, it’s simply about looking at all of the information from a neutral standpoint. It’s about asking questions and communicating so people can make the best possible decisions for themselves and their children.

“Parents love their kids and the vaccine ‘controversy’ has made it difficult for many parents to know what to do”.

Walia says, “Parents who are choosing not to vaccinate their children are not just doing it based on belief, they are doing it based on science and information. This science and information is nowhere near emphasized to the point where the science and information on the other side of the coin is (‘pro vaccine’).

“Parents who choose not to vaccinate themselves or their children are clearly intelligent, and they should not be made to look like fools. On the other hand, parents who are choosing to vaccinate their children are also intelligent.

“Those who choose to vaccinate should not be made out to be the ones who have made the ‘right’ decision when there is evidence on both sides of the coin that clearly shows parents who are not vaccinating their children could also be making the ‘right’ decision”.

The article lists (as follows) the top six reasons parents choose not to vaccinate their kids:

  1. The Vaccine/Autism Controversy
  2. Scientific/Industry Fraud
  3. The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act
  4. The Ineffectiveness Of Some Vaccines And Vaccine Injury
  5. Vaccine Ingredients
  6. Vaccine Safety Evidence Is Not Rock Solid. One Size Does Not Fit All.

In his conclusion, Walia presents a fairly balanced argument that suggests it’s time to open up the debate as currently the pro-vaccination lobby is the only one that’s being given airtime in the mainstream media.

Besides the fact that pharmaceutical companies cannot be trusted, the other aspect in the equation is that virtually all vaccines are loaded with chemicals and other poisons.

Here’s a rundown on some of the damaging ingredients in vaccines on the market today, as listed on the Healthy Home Economist website in a 2015 article:

“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, calf serum, human diploid cells (the dissected organs of aborted fetuses), pig blood, horse blood and rabbit brain.”

The article also states that other countries are waking up to the dangers of vaccines. “In 1975, Japan raised its minimum vaccination age to two years. The country’s infant mortality subsequently plummeted to such low levels that Japan now enjoys one of the lowest levels in the Western world (#3 at last look). In comparison, the United States’ infant mortality rate is #33.

(It should be mentioned the Japanese ruling has since been amended. According to the Vaccination Liberation-Information site, Japan’s health authorities now recommend six vaccinations via injection in the first year of life, and three more in the second year. That, according to the same source, compares to 20 vaccinations in the first two years of life of most American children).

The Healthy Home Economist article continues, “In Australia, the flu vaccine was recently suspended (April 2010) for children under 5 because an alarming number of children were showing up in the emergency rooms with febrile convulsions or other vaccine reactions within hours of getting this shot”.

After researching the pros and cons of immunizations, and listening to all sides of the debate, we still have NO IDEA what the best decision is for parents to make regarding that most tricky of questions – to vaccinate or not to vaccinate.

However, we do agree there needs to be a wider public debate as this issue ain’t necessarily as cut and dried as Big Pharma and others in the Medical Industrial Complex would have us believe.

As with many cases involving extreme or polarizing points of view, we suspect the truth regarding child immunizations is probably somewhere in the middle ground. We also disregard (and recommend you do, too) the “evil mega conspiracy” implications some anti-vaccine campaigners trot out just as we disregard the “science is already 100% proven and safe” claims the pro-vaccine lobby loudly trumpets.

We also think that, at the very least, those adults who are happy to vaccinate their children should be demanding en masse that pharmaceutical companies remove all the toxic chemicals and other poisons that are loaded in these vaccines. When you scan the ingredients, which read like they belong in a can of household paint, it’s obvious these things just cannot be good for the health and wellbeing of a child’s brain or body!

For all we know it may be better for a child to be subjected to all these doses of chemicals and poisons than risk contracting serious diseases like polio, but does that make it right? And is everything that can be done, being done, to make vaccines’ ingredients less toxic and safer?

It’s unfortunate that only a small percentage of the public are aware of what exactly is in vaccines. If more people were made aware, and if enough demanded less poisonous vaccines, then Big Pharma would be forced to change.

Boycotting products and putting public pressure on corporations and governments can be a very effective way to enforce change. Ultimately, the power rests with the people – the 99 percent.

If enough demand change, it will happen. And it does seem at least some changes are needed in this most vexing of issues – the vaccination of our children.

MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX: The $ickness Industry, Big Pharma and Suppressed Cures (The Underground Knowledge Series Book 3)

 

************************

Can society trust the big pharmaceutical companies enough to be sure child immunizations are not dangerous – especially in the light of the alarmingly long list of proven fraudulent activities of many of those same companies? We attempt to answer that question in our book MEDICAL INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX: The $ickness Industry, Big Pharma and Suppressed Cures.

We also ask is there any limit to the lengths drug companies will go to in order to maximize revenue? And if adult lives aren’t safe in this mad pursuit of profits, can we be certain children’s lives won’t be viewed as expendable as well?

But surely they wouldn’t suppress scientific evidence of vaccine dangers when it comes to children? you may ask. Surely they wouldn’t go that far? Right?

Well, you may be right, but let’s break things down a little before reaching any conclusions.

Firstly, it’s an indisputable fact that immunizations protect many millions of children every year from potentially deadly diseases, and they save countless lives. It is undeniable that vaccines have all but eradicated a whole host of serious diseases including diphtheria, rubella and smallpox. Polio was also on that list although, alarmingly, it has reportedly been making a comeback in recent years.

Given the apparent overwhelming scientific evidence proving the effectiveness of child immunizations, in legal parlance this seems like it should be case closed. However, not all parents, and more significantly not all health industry professionals, agree it’s as simple an issue as that. Indeed, some doctors, nurses and other health professionals argue the underreported risks of vaccinating infants far outweigh the protection they provide against certain diseases.

At the time of writing, Californian politicians were considering passing a new law – Senate Bill 277 (SB 277) – making it mandatory for Californian residents to vaccinate their children. As you can imagine, this hasn’t gone down well with everyone.

Taking away parents’ ability to choose has stirred up the vaccine debate once more – especially in alternative media.

On April 23, 2015, the healthy living website Elephant ran an article by health campaigner Elliot Freed, commenting on the issues at stake. In it, Freed hints at complexities that go beyond whether vaccines are safe and effective, stating, “In 1986 vaccine manufacturers were given financial immunity from the damages of their products by congress”.

It turns out that law change led to a program that’s funded by a 75 cent levy on every vaccine sold.

The article heavily implies that through this legal and/or political loophole, drug companies can repeatedly dodge most claims which attempt to establish a link between vaccines and injury to children.

The Elephant article also mentions how more child vaccines than ever contain disease-producing pathogens – more so since liability was eliminated for drug companies producing vaccines. The list of vaccines containing pathogens, according to the article, includes “the MMR, the dTap and the oral polio vaccine”.

Because of the financial immunity in the production of vaccines, pharmaceutical manufacturers are now much more focused on developing vaccines than drugs. Easy to understand why: it’s a lower risk activity.

Freed continues, “Drugs go through a more rigorous testing process. They are then optional for consumers and consumers and governments can sue pharmaceutical companies for damages caused by the drugs. Vaccines are subject to a less rigorous testing process, saving millions of dollars for each drug sold as a vaccine.”

And of course, vaccines need far less advertising costs – especially when governments make their usage mandatory.

“This is not about vaccines for diseases like polio or measles,” Freed says. He goes on to predict that many other future vaccines will become mandatory as well. “Where are the infectious epidemics that are killing our children? I don’t see them”.

If the bill (SB 277) passes, according to Freed, “No state legislator, no school administrator, no doctor and no parent will be able to say no to any chemical mandated by the federal government to be injected into children, so long as it is packaged as a ‘vaccine’”.

Is this paranoia? Unfounded speculation? A theory only tinfoil hat-wearing conspiracy theorists would believe?

Not according to RFK’s son, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., who has warned the public that a medically induced ‘holocaust’ is now upon us…
