Immunizations: Too Much, Too Soon?
I am not against vaccines. It is a proven and effective science… however common sense tells me that it is Too Much, Too Soon for our children. These little people have immature immune systems, and are bombarded with toxins enough to overload anybody’s system! (READ MIA’S STORY)
The actual virus is a dead or weakened virus, but it is still enough to trigger an immune response and immune memory. It’s most certainly a smart science! However, there is more to it… there are toxins included in the immunizations that trigger 4 Glaring Issues:
TIMING: The current schedule seems like an awful lot to inject into our children. Spread these out and give the body a chance to catch up!
IMPORTANCE: Let’s focus on the important vaccinations! Are sexually transmitted diseases like Hepatitis B & HPV necessary in young children? Let’s focus on the life-threatening diseases.
TOXINS: If this isn’t enough for our children to deal with, then the Mercury, Aluminum, Formaldehyde, and Preservatives are absolutely something to be worried about! They are known poisons, no matter how small the dose!
DIET: Toxin overload! Not just from the immunizations, but from our food system, our water and our air. Help your child to clean out the toxins! (READ: Immunizations: A guide to Helping Our Children Naturally “Detoxify”)
As these little people try to adapt to this world, it’s our job to help them…
1) TIMING: The current schedule seems like too much, too soon (in my opinion) to inject into our little children! Also, up to 10 vaccines are allowed per visit!? That is a lot for any immune system!In 1983, CDC recommended: -11 doses of 4 vaccines by the 1st birthday -22 doses of 7 vaccines by age 6 Total of 23 doses of 8 vaccines by age 18 Today (2013), CDC recommends: -26 doses of 9 vaccines by the 1st birthday -48 doses of 14 vaccines by age 6 TOTAL of 70 doses of 16 vaccines by age 18
2) IMPORTANCE: Are they all necessary? There are some viruses that are absolutely life threatening… and there are some that I question whether they are necessary.
Chicken pox: Most of the people reading this article have probably had the Chicken Pox… and it wasn’t fun, but was it life threatening? Do we really need a vaccine for it? Vaccines do not protect us forever either, so could that mean that we run the risk of contracting shingles as an adult once the vaccine wears off?
Hepatitis B: Hep B is a sexual transmitted disease (or transmitted through the sharing of needles). Hep B vaccination is given to babies immediately following birth. The first dose is given in the hospital because basically if the adults won’t go for the shots, then give them to the babies. This was “the strategy of vaccinating children because the vaccine ‘has not been well received’ among adults.” NYT, “U.S. PANEL URGES THAT ALL CHILDREN BE VACCINATED FOR HEPATITIS B” (http://www.nytimes.com/1991/03/01/us/us-panel-urges-that-all-children-be-vaccinated-for-hepatitis-b.html)
Cervical Cancer (HPV): “Our death rate in the United States from cervical cancer is three per 100,000.” Does this really warrant vaccinating kids as young as 9 years of age to prevent them from a sexually transmitted virus? Dr. Diane Harper, MD, MPH, MS suggests, “Get a pap-smear”!
The Flu: In 1999, THIMEROSAL (mercury) began being reduced/ eliminated from vaccines by about 50%, but “…trace amounts still exist after manufacturing”… and “are still present in shots like the FLU vaccine. We know that any amount of mercury can cause damage (more common sense). Also, flu shots do not necessarily work as we have seen. There is a different strain every year. There is so much to say here, but not in this article.
Combo vaccinations: While MMR and Dtap are important vaccines, it is unfortunately difficult to separate them… Again, for our little ones, it may be too much, too soon.
3) TOXINS: Immunization ingredients consist of: “mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde, cells from aborted fetuses, cells from monkey kidneys, chicken embryos, viruses, antibiotics, yeast, Polysorbate 80, detergents, etc.”
So why in the world would the pharmaceutical companies use mercury and aluminum?
Well, it’s because of Adjuvants. Adjuvants are ‘helper’ substances added to vaccines to stimulate an immune response. Without adjuvants, the vaccines do not work. Aluminum is the adjuvant most commonly used in vaccines. “Without the aluminum, the vaccine basically does not provide any long-term protection.” It helps it to “stick around longer to ensure an immune response” … It does help it to stick around for months, which might explain why a child may have a “delayed reaction”!
Aluminum: Dr. Chris Shaw explains the difference between injectable aluminum versus dietary aluminum… dietary aluminum is excreted fairly rapidly. “Injectable aluminum is meant to stick around.” When Dr. Chris Shaw injected the mercury into mice “behavioral symptoms emerged. They showed not only behavioral deficits and motor function, but they ultimately showed cognitive deficits as well.” When they looked inside their brains and spinal cords, they “found massive damage to motor neurons and so we may be creating the conditions for Parkinson’s disease, Lou Gehrig’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease. Maybe not immediately, but maybe 20, 30, 40 years down the road.” If we are bypassing our nose and mouth as a barrier, and having it injected directly into our blood, we run the risk of neurological problems.
Mercury: About 50% of flu vaccines contain mercury, and many other vaccines still contain trace amounts of mercury as well. “…most flu vaccines still contain 25mcg of mercury.” That is concerning because we also know that mercury at a level of .8 makes it a dangerous neurotoxin. This neurotoxin “is particularly damaging to the brain of a developing fetus or child.”
We also know that “Formaldehyde has been classified as a known human carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer.” And we know the “damaging effects of aluminum to the brain and immune system continues to mount.”
INGREDIENTS: See this list for exact ingredients, supplied by the CDC: http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/pubs/pinkbook/downloads/appendices/b/excipient-table-2.pdf
RISKS: Of course heavy metals carry risks when they are injected into your bloodstream… maybe the viruses themselves do not carry a risk, but certainly the other ingredients listed above do.
What bothers me most, and what prompted me to write this article, was a mystery “condition” that my daughter had (MIA’S STORY). Mia’s condition was never quite answered, and as it turns out I just learned of a new fact: immunizations can cause 2 types of reactions – an immediate anaphylactic reaction OR a much slower, more gradual, delayed reaction. This information was hard to hear… because it validates my intuition.
So you can have the normal reactions at the injection site – you know: “swelling, soreness, tenderness and a lump… fever, fussiness, tiredness, and vomiting after vaccination” – reactions that we have been conditioned to accept as normal, and benign. And all this time these visible symptoms might just be a precursor to something more that is happening below the skin…
“Recent research has shown neurological damage including motor function deficits, cognitive impairment, and behavioral changes in mice given the aluminum in vaccines. Research has also shown chronic cognitive dysfunction, impaired immune function, and autoimmune disease in humans following administration of these same compounds.” It has been linked to: “Inflammatory Disorders … Serious Acute Neurologic Illness.” You know – conditions that we tend to accept now-a-days – “learning disability, allergies, ADHD, or another type of chronic disease” … “chronic cognitive dysfunction, behavioral changes, autoimmune disease, motor function impairment, eczema, learning disabilities, arthritis, asthma, autism and more” – THESE ARE NOT NORMAL!
“One in six kids in this country has some form of neuro-developmental disability.” This number has risen dramatically since the 80s. And autism… well we know that aluminum and mercury cause neurological problems – and we know that autism is a neurological disorder, so could we safely assume that autism is on the rise along following the increase of immunizations? (And of course combined with poor eating habits?)
Safety Studies: The truth is that we don’t know what the risks are because studies have not been done. The placebo in studies can actually be aluminum, mercury or other vaccines, which doesn’t make it a controlled group. Also the studies tend to focus on the immune response, instead of the vaccines themselves. Furthermore, “The majority of vaccine research is paid for by the vaccine manufacturers themselves.” Which means that “… the people who are approving the vaccines are taking the word of the pharmaceutical companies.”
“Over the past decade, pharmaceutical companies have spent more money lobbying in Washington than any other industry including oil and insurance.” Barbara Fischer, Activist says: “That’s not science, that’s politics…” “The pharmaceutical companies have been allowed to be too present at the table at the FDA and the CDC and I think a firewall needs to be built between those in government who are regulating, making policy for, and developing vaccines and those pharmaceutical companies that are making profit off the sale of vaccines.”
There are many more questionable actions taking place, but I will let you hear it from the people that have done the extensive research, and who have made this article is possible –The Greater Good Movie
“Our children today have elevated levels of many neurotoxins in their blood, plastics derivatives, petrochemicals, pesticides, PCBs. Our tanks are nearly full. Our capacity to detoxify all these substances is very limited.” Additionally, there has been a decline in the quality of food. All of this affects our children’s immune strength, lowers their resistance and reduces their natural ability to detoxify by overloading their organs. Please read this blog for specific foods that will help ignite your child’s natural detoxifying system! Immunizations: A guide to Helping Our Children Naturally “Detoxify”)
