Just the Facts: A counter essay to Anti-Vaccination Movement Causes a Deadly Year in the U.S. By Virstyne Henry
This essay was sparked by a Facebook post I saw floating around Facebook. Titled Anti-Vaccination Movement Causes a Deadly year in the U.S. By Brian Krans in Health Line News. (http://www.healthline.com/health-news/children-anti-vaccination-movement-leads-to-disease-outbreaks-120312)Below the article I saw a comment “I wish people would listen to the facts.” I thought yeah me too, I wish people would listen to the facts. The irony of that comment was what sparked me to write this article. I clicked on the article and read it along with the links that the author attached. I must admit it gave me a good laugh. Almost as funny as an episode of South Park. I said almost, South Park is still funnier.
If you have an open mind, and would like to read some facts instead of the above mentioned article which is poorly researched, unintelligible and in paper form would be worthy of scraping a dead insect off the bottom of a shoe, then please keep reading. Fact #1 Most anti-vaccine advocates were pro-vaccine advocates at one point. Have you ever thought to ask yourself why did they change their views? Fact #2 Vaccines weren’t responsible for the eradication of disease. It was the impact of increased hygiene and waste management that lead to the minimization of disease outbreaks. There are some people who have the romantic notion, that in our evolution as a civilization, vaccines are the one thing that may have saved us from extinction. Human civilization has been around for thousands of years may be more. Very few people stop and ask the question how did human civilization survive before vaccinations? Were there other factors that could have led to eradication of major disease? Dr. Suzane Humphries a nephrologist talks about the Polio racket and how vaccination didn’t eradicate disease. In her lecture here. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Twch-T-n8Ns#t=418) She also gives more detailed explanation in her book Dissolving Illusions: Disease, Vaccines, and The Forgotten History (http://www.amazon.com/Dissolving-Illusions-Disease-Vaccines-Forgotten/dp/1480216895/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1387394433&sr=8-1&keywords=suzanne+humphries) http://childhealthsafety.wordpress.com/graphs/ (Vaccines did not save us 2centuries of Official Statistics) http://www.amazon.com/Official-Stories-Counter-Arguments-Culture-Need/dp/147756134X/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1387437995&sr=8-1&keywords=official+stories+Liam+Scheff (Official Stories by Liam Scheff Chapter 5 The Religious Science talks about this as well) Pro-vaccine advocates like to state the anti-vaccine movement started because of Jenny McCarthy. It’s all her fault. I find it extremely insulting that pro-vaccine advocates like to attribute Jenny McCarthy to “leading the masses astray”. As if we are incapable of making a sound decision and are easily coerced by the power of celebrity voodoo magic. While it’s true that the phenomenon of celebrity has power, and people listen to celebrities, the masses don’t blindly follow. Jenny’s experience of her son’s regression into autism after vaccination got people to investigate the ingredients in vaccines, and the efficacy of vaccines. Maybe it’s because people started to realize how vaccines were manufactured, or they started to observe their own children, and people’s children that they know, and the reactions in their own bodies, that happened after getting vaccinated. Maybe it’s all of the websites that have been popping up over the internet displaying personal anecdotes as well as scientific evidence linking autism as well as other disorders to vaccines. Hmmm maybe that could be it you think? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wf8sw3n7xrE (by Dr. Yehuda Shoenfeld lectures how auto-immune disorders are caused by vaccines) http://www.plosone.org/article/info:doi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0008382 (Study linking vaccines as the cause of auto-immune disease) http://truthaboutgardasil.org/injuries/ (Gardasil Injuries) http://vaxtruth.org/ http://vaccineresistancemovement.org/ Pro-vaccine advocates like to blame Dr. Andrew Wakefield. It saddens me the number of people who refuse to investigate both sides of a story. If you were falsely accused of something wouldn’t you want to be able to tell your side of the story? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d40suCKnjbI (Andrew Wakefield’s side) Fact #3 Dr.Andrew Wakefield isn’t anti-vaccination. He’s in favor of safer vaccination practices. Before he published his article in the Lancet, this world renowned gastroenterologist published approximately 130 peer reviewed papers. Presently he has a huge following that is only getting bigger. Nobody died or was injured under his care. His license was revoked because the people who convicted him, had ties to the pharmaceutical industry, which wanted to silence his findings,and make an example out of him to scare off other doctors who had similar findings. Fortunately it hasn’t worked. Since then there have been other doctors such as Neurologist Dr. Russell Blaylock, Dr.Natasha Campbell-McBride (another neurosurgeon who’s son regressed into autism after being vaccinated) Dr. Sheri Tenpenny an Osteopathic doctor and Nephrologist Dr. Suzanne Humphries among others. Below is a list of 83 Doctors, Nurses, and Scientists who question the safety and efficacy of vaccines and the list keeps getting bigger. http://www.naturalnews.com/specialreports/vaccinesfullstory/v1/vaccinereport-en.pdf Pro-vaccine advocates like to say, “If you don’t get vaccinated you’re putting us all in danger! ”Really? By your logic if you’re getting vaccinated aren’t you safe? I mean isn’t that the point of vaccination in the first place? Fact #4 Vaccines are a shot in the dark, pun intended. The theory is that a dead pathogen is injected into a persons body. The body recognizes this pathogen as a harmful invader and develops antibodies to the dead pathogen. If the person comes in contact with a live pathogen, the immune system is supposed to be able to fight it off to keep the person from getting sick. Pro-vaccine advocates like to point the finger at anti-vaccine advocates when an outbreak of disease occurs. What pro-vaccine advocates don’t tell you is disease outbreaks occur not in unvaccinated populations but in highly vaccinated populations. http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/00000359.htm (measles outbreak in highly vaccinated populations) http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7795768 (Between October 3 and November 23, 1990, clinical mumps developed in 54students (attack rate, 18%), 53 of whom had been vaccinated.) http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/mm5905a1.htm (Among the patients for whom vaccination status was reported, 88% had received at least 1 dose of mumps-containing vaccine, and 75%had received 2 doses. This is the largest mumps outbreak that has occurred in the United States since 2006 (2). Although mumps vaccination alone was not sufficient to prevent this outbreak,maintaining high measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccination coverage remains the most effective way to prevent outbreaks and limit their size when they occur.) http://therefusers.com/refusers-newsroom/6-times-more-measles-vaccine-adverse-reaction-reports-than-measles-cases-in-2011/#.Uq9_A42rvsA(More adverse reactions in vaccines than in measles itself) The link above admits that the mumps vaccination was not effective but yet the CDC still recommends getting the mumps vaccination? How perverse! Vaccines are not effective it’s a premise that we’ve accepted as a society on good faith. It’s not based on science but a religious belief.
There are some people that would like to point to the theory of “Heard Immunity” but that is a myth when applied to vaccine-induced immunity as world renounced neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock explains in his article here.
http://www.vaccinationcouncil.org/2012/02/18/the-deadly-impossibility-of-herd-immunity-through-vaccination-by-dr-russell-blaylock/ Pro-vaccine advocates like to say there is no evidence linking autism to vaccinations. Fact #5 Anybody that makes that statement should change it to “ There are no studies to my knowledge that link vaccines to autism” to keep from sounding uninformed and ignorant. There are studies that don’t link vaccines to autism and there ARE studies that do. Before you look at the list below of 30 studies that link vaccines to autism ask your self this… What do the studies that found a link to autism and vaccines have to gain? And then ask what do the studies that didn’t find a link between Autism and vaccines have to gain? Were the studies that didn’t find a link funded by people who had a financial interest in “not finding a link”? The vaccine industry is a billion dollar industry. If people who had financial interest were to admit that there is a link, people would stop vaccinating and they could kiss their billion dollars in revenue goodbye. https://www.facebook.com/notes/lisa-joyce-goes/30-scientific-studies-that-demonstrate-vaxes-can-cause-autism/10150278904786311(Thirty Studies Linking Autism to Vaccines) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uS0ioiB0_oY( Central Mechanism By Which Vaccines Induce Autism Russell Blaylock) Pro-vaccine advocates like to say that vaccines are 100% safe. Really they are? Are you sure? Fact #6 Vaccines are loaded with toxins as well recombinant DNA. Take a look at the list of these ingredients and determine if you think they are safe to inject into your body or not. http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/pubs/pinkbook/downloads/appendices/b/excipient-table-2.pdf (List of Vaccine Ingredients) http://www.vaclib.org/pdf/vaxcont2.pdf (More Vaccine Ingredients) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7r8Mw6D0bX4(Janine Roberts award winning investigative journalist and her findings on vaccines) http://www.vaccineinfo4parents.co.uk/PDF/BookSnipet/Text%20taken%20from%20Fear%20of%20the%20Invisible.pdf( Excerpt of Janine Roberts book Fear of the Invisible) When the body comes in contact with toxins and pathogens it’s easier to fight them off because they are received through an orifice e.g. ear, nose, mouth, skin pores ect… The body’s immune system can fight them off easier. When something is injected into the muscle it’s harder to fight off because it by passes the body’s natural immune system. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XUORtLSg19E (Interview with Nephrologist Dr. Suzanne Humphries talking about the ingredients of vaccines and the harmful effect they have on the body) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCNDc_a-a8Q (Interview with Neurologist Dr. Russell Blaylock talking about the ingredients of vaccines and the harmful effect they have on the body) Pro-vaccine advocates constantly state, “The only evidence these parents have is anecdotal evidence that doesn’t count. What they need is real science.” Fact #7 The definition of science is the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment. How about this for science. My cousin and my best friend’s son were talking before they got their MMR vaccine. After the vaccine they stopped. My friend Sara was walking before she took the Gardisil vaccine now she isn’t. That’s plain and simple science via observation right? How about cause and effect? If I was hiking, a bee hive fell on my face, and I went into anaphylactic shock and died, It would be inferred that the cause was a bee-hive falling on my face and the effect was anaphylactic shock caused by the stinging of the bees and then death. If a child goes into convulsions, becomes paralyzed, or regresses into autism after being vaccinated? Why isn’t the vaccine put into question? That’s absurd. Another thing, what are studies but a series of observations of other people conducted by scientists. These parents observed that their children were reacting to vaccines immediately after receiving them if your child or someone you loved had a reaction to a vaccine? Would you need a study to tell you what you observed was real? You can argue that we’ve eradicated disease through vaccinations, but at what cost?Vaccine injuries far out number measles, polio, and chicken pox cases and complications. Along with the rise in vaccination, a tremendous rise in auto-immune diseases, ADD/ADHD, allergies,and autism have been seen.
And from parents who have children with any of the aforementioned conditions, I think that they would take a few weeks of the measles, and chicken pox, over a lifetime of chronic auto-immune disorders,life threatening allergies, and autism any day. Pro-vaccine advocates like to call Anti-vaccine advocates crazy “conspiracy theorists.” Fact#8 Any body that garners an alternative view toward vaccination is automatically labeled as crazy, but based on what evidence? There are websites like Quackwatch, Jennymacathysbodycount, and even Wikipedia that label anyone with an alternative view to vaccination as crazy but they never list all the evidence on the opposing side. Never. Anyone who slaps the label of crazy onto me never bothered to ask me why I have come to the conclusion that I have. They don’t know my years of experience as as a special education teacher working for LAUSD and the many stories from parents that I heard of children regressing into autism after being vaccinated. They don’t ask me about my cousin, my best friends, son or my friend Sara who are victims of vaccine injury. They don’t ask me about the hundreds of hours of research that I’ve done on vaccines, which is way more than the average person does. They automatically assume that I have this opinion for shits and giggles and have nothing better to do with my time. The funny thing is I realize that most pro-vaccine advocates and anti-vaccine advocates have the same intention; to live on a healthy, prosperous, thriving planet. It’s funny how we are so divided on this issue when we want the same thing. Fact #9 Vaccination is a religious belief not a science. For people who are strongly pro-vaccination, have you ever thought where you garnered your opinion? The fact is we are fear-mongered into getting vaccines. We are shown pictures of disfigured and maimed children,people in iron lungs, and told if we don’t get vaccinated the same thing is going to happen to us and even worse if we don’t get vaccinated we are causing the whole planet to become at risk from a decimating plague that will end human civilization as we know it. The belief in vaccination is something we accept in good faith that we will be save and saved. Most people don’t know the ingredients that are in vaccines. I thought I did. There was a time I thought vaccines were just a saline solution with a dead virus or bacteria that when injected into me would prep my immune system for battle with a live pathogen of the same sort. Pro-vaccine advocates scoff at outspoken parents who are educated on the issue and stand up for their rights. Who do these grief-stricken parents think they are? What right do they have to question doctors who have spent years in school and actually have their best interest at heart. Fact# 10 While it’s true that most doctors become so to help people, they are not taught all of the facts in medical school about the dangers of vaccination. Heck, in conversations I’ve had and interviews I’ve conducted with doctors, they’re not even taught about all of the ingredients in vaccines. They are mainly taught that they prevent disease, and that they are safe, effective, and harmless and they really don’t have any reason to think otherwise. I believe these aren’t bad people they honestly are trying to do a good job and they want nothing else but to do that. For those doctors who have parents coming to them after their child has had convulsions, or some other type of detrimental reaction, days sometimes hours after getting vaccinated, and for them not to question the vaccine is ludicrous. That’s when I began to question their intentions for becoming a doctor. I mean why did they get into this profession in the first place? If their ego is so huge, that they are going to dismiss a parents who questions vaccines without even listening to them, or look into the information, I really have to question why they became a doctor in the first place. Remember doctors aren’t divine and can become fame whores just as much as the next person. Medical doctors are one of the professions that people admire. They spend a lot of time, money, and energy in school and make a lot of sacrifices. They’re handsomely paid. They are generally revered as Gods . Just like any mortal that dares question them they must be struck down and punished. Now I will give kudos to the doctors who actually listen to parents and investigate their concerns. Those are true doctors. Because they realize to treat patients successfully it takes a collective effort. Fact #11 I’m ashamed to admit had I not had people that I love affected by vaccine injury, I probably wouldn’t have cared enough to look into this issue that deeply. There was a time I thought I knew everything there was to know about vaccines. Boy was I wrong. When I really read and tried to understand this information, the list of ingredients, and the harmful effects they are having on the human DNA structure, it can become quite alarming. You really have to come to terms with the fact that the people who you put your trust in are extremely ignorant and incompetent, or extremely nefarious because they know what they are doing. Neither of those conclusions are a comfortable resolution to be left with. On the flip side I’ve found it to be a deeply enlightening experience. Because I did my own research I have a deeper understanding of how the human body works,how disease occurs, and how to ward it off. I don’t have a fear of becoming sick or getting disease anymore and I’ve found that aspect to be tremendously empowering. This article was not written for people who already think they know everything.Their mind is sadly for them already made up. It was written for people who want to be empowered, open to listen to the other side of the argument, and realize there is something more to learn. No voodoo magic and tomfoolery to read here. Just the facts, and nothing but the facts are you ready to listen?
