Title: A Second Look At Vaccinations: The Risks and Dangers


1
A Second Look At Vaccinations The Risks and
Dangers
A Special Report
  • Young Living Grand Convention, June 18-21, 2002

2
A Second Look at Vaccinations The Risks and
Dangers A Special Report There are four major
concerns that must be addressed regarding the
mandated inoculations America's children receive
1. Inoculation does not guarantee immunity 2.
Informed consent 3. Vaccine contamination
causes death and neurological damage 4.
Conflict of interest in the vaccine bureaucracy
1. Inoculation does not guarantee immunity
A. There are a number of studies that show
childhood diseases are becoming a "disease of
immunized persons."1 Many epidemics have followed
the introduction of vaccines. The Philippines had
the worst smallpox epidemic ever in the early
1900s even after a vaccination rate of 95
percent.2 In 1986, 90 percent of the pertussis
cases in Kansas were "adequately vaccinated."3
The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reported a
measles outbreak in a documented 100 percent
vaccinated population.4 George Bernard Shaw
said, "During the last considerable epidemic at
the turn of the century 1900, I was a member of
the Health Committee of London Borough Council,
and I learned how the credit of vaccination is
kept statistically by diagnosing all the
revaccinated cases of smallpox as pustular
eczema, varioloid or what notexcept smallpox."5
B. The tuberculosis vaccine has been shown to
have no efficacy against adult TB the U.S.
doesn't vaccinate and in 1999 had 6.4
tuberculosis cases per 100,000. Russia vaccinates
for TB but its rate of infection was 85 cases per
100,000. Today it is even higher, states the
author of Timebomb The Global Epidemic of
Multi-Drug-Resistant Tuberculosis.6 C.
Numerous studies show that disease rates were
already falling before the introduction of
vaccines. Better nutrition and sanitation are
responsible for disease elimination. Even the
World Health Organization (WHO) has stated "The
best vaccine against common infectious diseases
is an adequate diet."
3
2. Regarding informed consent A. Parents are
not aware that so many children sickened and died
each year following vaccination that vaccine
manufacturers threatened to halt production.
Vaccine manufacturers were facing an onslaught of
DPT vaccine wrongful death suits so the
government took responsibility for adverse
events. In 1986 Congress instituted the National
Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, indemnifying
vaccine manufacturers and transferring all
vaccine claims to the U.S. Court of Claims.
According to VAERS (Vaccine Adverse Event
Reporting System), more than 1.2 billion has
been paid out. B. A researcher writes that the
Federal government's VAERS reporting system
"receives about 11,000 reports of serious adverse
reactions to vaccinations annually, which include
as many as two hundred deaths, and several times
that number of permanent disabilities." These
figures represent just the tip of the iceberg,
however. FDA statistics note that less than 10
percent of adverse events are actually reported
even though mandated by law. C. Parents are
also not told that it is their right to refuse
vaccination based on philosophical or religious
reasons. Nor are they told that in 1998 the
Minister of Health in France suspended the
Hepatitis B vaccine requirement for public school
children. This followed troubling reports of
autoimmune and neurological disorders after
vaccination (as well as a lawsuit representing
15,000 French citizens who accused the government
of understating the vaccine's risks and
overstating its benefits). D. Why are
hours-old infants being immunized against
Hepatitis B when this disease infects intravenous
drug users, homosexuals, prostitutes, and
promiscuous heterosexuals? Pregnant women are
screened for this disease before delivery and the
children of infected mothers should be the only
babies needing this vaccination. Why are innocent
and pure infants unwittingly forced to risk their
health because of an epidemic of disease caused
by lifestyle choices made by consenting adults?
Why is it that parents are never warned of the
dangers of this particular vaccination? E.
Studies show that children died at a rate eight
times greater than normal "within three days of
getting a DPT shot. Medical historian Harris
Coulter, Ph.D., estimates that two-thirds of the
10,000 cases of crib death are vaccine related.
It is known that when Japan moved the vaccination
age to 2 years old in 1975, crib death and
infantile convulsions virtually disappeared.
F. The FDA and Centers for Disease Control
(CDC) maintain a Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting
System (VAERS) but the FDA acknowledges that more
than 90 of adverse events are not reported.7 In
1986, Congress
4
indemnified vaccine manufacturers from liability
which has cost U.S. taxpayers more than 1.2
billion to date. Each death "payoff' has been
limited to 250,000. VAERS data from January
1,1990 to November 1, 2001 show that ?
Following the DTP shot 807 children died. ?
Following the DTaP shot 364 children died
(acellular pertussis was adopted because of high
reactions to live cell). ? Following the
hepatitis B shot 679 children died. ?
Following the haemophilus B shot 932 children
died. ? Following the poliovirus live oral
vaccine 970 children died. In 1996 only 54
cases of hepatitis B were reported in the 0-1 age
group. There were 3.9 million births that year,
so the observed incidence of hepatitis B in the
0-1 age group was just 0.001 . VAERS received
1,080 total reports of adverse reactions from
hepatitis B vaccine in 1996 in that same age
group including 47 deaths. The hepatitis B
vaccine actually caused more illness than the
disease by a 20 to 1 ratio. 3. Vaccine
contamination A. One of the largest vaccine
manufacturers was cited for failing to assure
sterility in producing chickenpox, measles,
mumps, rubella, and hepatitis A vaccines. A
Freedom of Information Act request secured a copy
of the report in which violations filled 23
pages. The Wall Street Journal quoted
immunization chief for the Centers for Disease
Control as saying that pediatricians have run out
of vaccines largely because of "manufacturing
snafus" at Merck Co. No mention was made of
the fact that FDA violations halted production.
The report regarding the closure could not be
found by searching the FDA's website. A telephone
inquiry to the FDA resulted in disclosure and
then the report was obtained by the Freedom of
Information Act.   B. On January 24, 2002 the
U.S. government convened a 21-member advisory
committee to investigate Gulf War Illness. The
New York Times reported that veterans of the war
were nearly twice as likely as other soldiers to
suffer the fatal neurological illness known as
Lou Gehrig's disease. Some researchers think
inoculations of experimental vaccines
5
are to blame. Because of a high number of
dangerous reactions, over 400 service men and
women have opted for forced retirement rather
than take the anthrax vaccine. C. The anthrax
vaccine currently in use in America was developed
for the less-fatal cutaneous (skin) anthrax. Its
efficacy against inhaled anthrax has never been
demonstrated. The vaccine was prepared using the
garden-variety anthrax commonly found around
livestock. Biowarfare anthrax will have been
genetically modified. The New York Times authors
of Germs Biological Weapons and America's Secret
War write that "It takes 18 months to develop a
weapons-grade agent and ten years to develop a
good vaccine against it." D. Vaccine
manufacturers have failed to produce
peer-reviewed, published safety studies on
childhood vaccines. Michael Belkin, father of an
infant that died following a hepatitis B shot
questioned this vaccine's safety as he asked,
"Why do the CDC, ACIP (the committee that decides
which vaccines are mandated) and Merck say that
there are 140,000-320,000 new infections a year
(70,000-160,000 symptomatic infections a year)
when their own CDC data show only 10,000 reported
cases a year? They are passing off estimated
hypothetical numbers as actual cases. This is
statistical fraud." E. Thimerosal, which is
49.6 percent mercury, was first marketed in 1930
and can still be found in some vaccines as a
preservative. As thimerosal began to be used
throughout the United States there was an
unexpected rise in "adverse events." Toward the
end of the '30s, child psychiatrist Leo Kanner
identified a new kind of mental illness autism.
Autism and mercury poisoning have extremely
similar symptoms.   At a San Diego research
meeting on autism, Dr. Stephanie Cave presented
the following information "By the age of two,
American children have received 237 micrograms of
mercury through vaccines alone, which far
exceeds current EPA 'safe' levels of 0.1 mcg/kg.
per day. That's one-tenth of a microgram, not one
microgram.   "Three days in particular may be
singled out as spectacularly toxic for infants
"Day of birth hepatitis B12 mcg mercury (30
times safe level).   "At 4 months DTaP and HiB
on same day50 mcg mercury (60 times safe level).
6
"At 6 months Hep B, Polio62.5 mcg mercury (78
times safe level).   "At 15 months the child
received another 50 mcg (41 times safe level).
"These figures are calculated for an infant's
average weight in kilograms for each age. These
one-day blasts of mercury are called 'bolus
doses.' Although they far exceed 'safe' levels,
there has never been any research conducted on
the toxicity of such bolus doses of mercury given
to infants all these years."8 A press release
about the National Institutes of Health (NIH)
mercury-reduction program (April 26, 2001) noted
"Mercury is a potent neurotoxin. . . . Infants
and young children are also very vulnerable to
the impacts of mercury because it can affect
their developing brains." And yet we continue to
inject bolus doses of mercury directly into tiny
infants with many childhood vaccines.   In the
opening statement of Congressman Dan Burton
(R-IN), Chairman of the Government Reform
Committee hearing "Mercury in Medicine-Are We
Taking Unnecessary Risks? July 18, 2000,
Washington, D.C., Representative Burton said
"On July 9, 1999, the American
Academy of Pediatrics and the United States
Public Health Service issued a joint statement
recommending the removal of thimerosal from
vaccines. On May 31, 2000, the Food and Drug
Administration notified vaccine manufacturers
that its review of mercury compounds in drugs and
foods concluded that reducing or eliminating
thimerosal from vaccines is merited. However,
there has been no mandatory action. These
vaccines are still in use." A number of
studies have shown a link between the excessive
mercury exposure due to vaccines and rising rates
of autism in children (a report issued by the
California Health and Human Services Agency
revealed a 273 percent increase in California
children diagnosed with autism in the past
decade). One study noted "A review of medical
literature and US government data suggests that
(i) many cases of idiopathic autism are induced
by early mercury exposure from thimerosal (ii)
this type of autism represents an unrecognized
mercurial syndrome and (iii) genetic and
non-genetic factors establish a predisposition
whereby thimerosal's adverse effects occur only
in some children."9 Another study reported
"Because mercury is known to be a potential
neurotoxin to infants, further study of its
pharmacodynamics is warranted."
7
An article in the Sunday Times in London on May
27, 2001 observed, "Mercury in vaccines for
babies and infants could be the cause of autism
in children around the world, according to a
growing number of scientists. . ." The National
Autistic Society estimates that there are about
500,000 people with autism in Britain, 120,000 of
them children. According to one recent study,
there has been a tenfold increase of autism
among children between 1984 and 1994. F. If
mercury were the only contaminant in vaccines, we
could consider ourselves lucky. Dr. Joseph
Mercola listed some vaccine ingredients parents
are probably unaware of. A major component of all
vaccines is a cell culture. Human diploid cells
(which come from aborted fetal tissue) have been
used in the following vaccines MMR, chickenpox,
poliomyelitis (although not all manufacturers use
human cells), rabies, and hepatitis A. If human
tissues are not used, then one or more of the
following are used pig and horse blood, rabbit
brain, porcine (pig) pancreatic hydrolysate of
casein, dog kidney, monkey kidney, chick embryo,
chicken and duck eggs, and calf (bovine) serum.
The use of monkey cell lines in the
manufacturing of polio vaccines is having
terrifying consequences 50 years later. Sixty
different laboratories have confirmed that SV40
(simian virus 40) has been found in human cancer
tumors. Dr. Mercola writes "Some researchers
contend that SV40 was transmitted to humans
through the polio vaccine, which has saved many
lives. The vaccine is made in monkey kidney
cells, and from 1955 to 1963 an estimated 20
million Americans were given doses contaminated
with SV40." In 1961, the Food and Drug
Administration ordered all vaccine manufacturers
to screen out the SV40. One study suggests that
Lederle did not do so.10 Vaccines use aluminum
hydroxide and aluminum phosphate as "adjuvants"
which are believed to improve the immune
response. Aluminum is a known toxin that can
cause encephalitis, bone disease, and anemia in
susceptible people. It is also implicated in
Alzheimer's disease. Formaldehyde and
phenoxyethanol (also known as antifreeze) can
also be found in many vaccines. The toxicity of
these chemicals has been long established. 4.
Conflict of interest between vaccine industry and
government regulators In the United States the
FDA licenses vaccines and recommendations about
immunizations are dictated by the Advisory
Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP). The
members of this committee are appointed by the
Centers for Disease Control (CDC). ACIP
recommendations are enacted into law by public
health departments and/or state legislatures,
often after extensive lobbying by vaccine
manufacturing sales representatives.
8
In 1991 the National Vaccine Information Center
requested the removal of two of the five members
of ACIP, who were prominent physicians, Dr.
Edward Mortimer of Case Western University, and
Dr. James Cherry of UCLA. These two men were
shown to have accepted more than 800,000 in
expert witness fees, consulting fees, and
research grants from DPT vaccine manufacturers.
No action was taken. The September 2, 2000
issue of The Lancet, reported "U.S. government
officials are failing to enforce conflict of
interest regulations and are allowing experts
with industry ties to sit on vaccine approval
panels, charges a U.S. government report." The
report was prepared by the House Committee on
Government Reforms which stated that members of
committees that make recommendations to the FDA
and CDC (the Vaccines and Related Biological
Products Advisory Committee and the Advisory
Committee on Immunization Practices) "owned stock
in the companies producing similar vaccines
others had received honoraria and grants from
companies and institutions that stood to gain
should the vaccine be approved and several
worked for institutions that had financial ties
to companies with interests in the decision."
These conflict of interest violations have had
tragic consequences. The rotavirus vaccine was
licensed in the USA on August 31, 1998, and
placed on the vaccination schedule. In July 1999,
it was suspended and on October 22, 1999, its
approval was revoked. More than 100 infants
developed a serious and potentially fatal bowel
blockage called intussusception. Congressman
Dan Burtons hearing on Conflicts of Interest
and Vaccine Development reported that 1.
Members, including the Chair, of the FDA and CDC
advisory committees who make these decisions own
stock in drug companies that make vaccines. 2.
Individuals on both advisory committees own
patents for vaccines under consideration or
affected by the decisions of the committee. 3.
Three out of five of the members of the FDA's
advisory committee who voted for the rotavirus
vaccine had conflicts of interest that were
waived. 4. Seven individuals of the 15-member
FDA advisory committee were not present at the
meeting, two others were excluded from the vote,
and the remaining five were joined by five
temporary voting members who all voted to license
the product.
9
5. The CDC grants conflict-of-interest waivers
to every member of their advisory committee a
year at a time, and allows full participation in
the discussions leading up to a vote by every
member, whether they have a financial stake in
the decision or not. 6. The CDC's advisory
committee has no public membersno parents have a
vote in whether or not a vaccine belongs on the
childhood immunization schedule. The FDA's
committee has only one public member.
Congressman Burton noted that Dr. Harry
Greenberg, who serves as chair of the FDA
committee was excluded from the vote on the
rotavirus vaccine since he owns the patent on the
vaccine. It was noted that Dr. Greenberg owns
120,000 of stock in Avrion, a vaccine
manufacturer. He is also a paid member of the
board of advisors of Chiron, another vaccine
manufacturer and owns 40,000 of its stock. Are
Children "Captive Consumers" of the Powerful
Vaccine Industry? The total commitment of the
American medical community to vaccination is the
result of misplaced, blind faith and devotion to
financial rewards. There is a very real
possibility that true scientific inquiry has been
overwhelmed by a monolithic profit structure now
controlling vaccine policy in the United States.
President Eisenhower warned many years ago
about the "military-industrial complex." It seems
the medical-industrial complex may be even more
dangerous. In The Medical Time Bomb of
Immunization Against Disease by Robert S.
Mendelssohn, MD, he writes "There is a growing
suspicion that immunization against relatively
harmless childhood diseases may be responsible
for the dramatic increase in autoimmune diseases
since mass inoculations were introduced. These
are fearful diseases such as cancer, leukemia,
rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, Lou
Gehrig's disease, lupus erythematosus, and the
Guillain-Barre syndrome. An autoimmune disease
can be explained simply as one in which the
body's defense mechanisms cannot distinguish
between foreign invaders and ordinary body
tissues, with the consequences that the body
begins to destroy itself. Have we traded mumps
and measles for cancer and leukemia?"

Vaccination Does Not Guarantee Immunization
12
Vaccinate or Immunize?
  • Immunize isnt used much now regarding vaccines
    because they dont guarantee immunity.
  • The Journal of the American Medical Association
    (JAMA) reported Whooping cough caused by
    Bordetella pertussis B and parapertussis occurs
    frequently even in populations with high
    immunization rates.

13
Vaccinate or Immunize?
  • In the early 1900s, the Philippines had the worst
    smallpox epidemic ever after a vaccination rate
    of 95.
  • In 1989, the country of Oman experienced a
    widespread polio outbreak six months after
    achieving a complete vaccination rate.

14
Vaccinate or Immunize?
  • Japan had yearly increases in smallpox following
    the introduction of compulsory vaccines in 1872.
    Ten years later, there were 165,774 cases with
    29,979 deaths and all had been vaccinated.
  • During the same time, Australia had no compulsory
    vaccine laws and recorded only 3 deaths from
    smallpox over 15 years.

15
Vaccinate or Immunize?
  • The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reported a
    measles outbreak in a documented 100 vaccinated
    population.
  • In 1986, 90 of 1,300 pertussis cases in Kansas
    were adequately vaccinated.
  • In Chicago, 72 of pertussis cases were
    up-to-date with their vaccinations.

16
Vaccinate or Immunize?
  • In 1982, Maryland health officials blamed a
    pertussis epidemic on parents fears of the
    dangers of DPT vaccine but when former top
    virologist for the U.S. Division of Biological
    Standards, Dr. J. Anthony Morris, analyzed the 41
    cases, he confirmed only 5, and all had been
    vaccinated.

17
Vaccinate or Immunize?
  • Before Englands first compulsory vaccination law
    in 1853, the largest two-year smallpox death rate
    was about 2,000 in 1870-71, England and Wales
    had over 23,000 smallpox deaths.

Alzheimers and Flu Vaccinations
  • According to Hugh Fudenberg, MD (the worlds
    leading immunogeneticist, author of nearly 850
    papers in peer-reviewed journals) Individuals
    who have had five consecutive flu shots between
    1970 and 1980 (years studied) have a ten times
    higher chance of getting Alzheimers disease than
    if they had one, two or no shots.

21
Alzheimers and Flu Vaccinations (Continued)
  • When asked why, Dr. Fudenberg said it was due to
    the mercury and aluminum in every flu shot. The
    gradual mercury and aluminum buildup in the brain
    causes cognitive dysfunction.
  • Johns Hopkins Newsletter Nov. 1998 stated
    Alzheimers incidence would quadruple in coming
    years. Could flu shots be one reason?

Crib Death or Vaccine Death?
  • Viera Schreibner, PhD and Leif Karlsson, a
    biomedical electronics engineer, developed a

    death.
  • The surprising findings We found that the
    babies breathing was affected in a certain
    characteristic manner and over a long period of
    time following DPT injections.
  • There was a significant and clear clustering of
    these crib deaths around the time of
    vaccination.

32
Crib Death or Vaccine Death?
  • Medical historian, Harris Coulter, PhD, estimates
    that two-thirds of the 10,000 cases of crib death
    are vaccine-related.
  • When Japan moved the vaccination age to 2 years
    old in 1975, crib death and infantile convulsions
    virtually disappeared.

Who is telling the TRUTH?
  • U.S. Public Health Service NO HARM
  • There are no data or evidence of any harm caused
    by the level of exposure that some children may
    have encountered in following the existing
    immunization schedule. Infants and children who
    have received thimerosal-containing vaccines do
    not need to be tested for mercury exposure.
  • Joint Statement of the American Academy of
    Pediatrics (AAP) and the United States Public
    Health Service (USPHS), Sept. 1999.

38
Who is telling the TRUTH?
  • National Institutes of Health BEWARE OF MERCURY!
  • Mercury is a potent neurotoxin . . . Infants and
    young children are also very vulnerable to the
    impacts of mercury because it can affect their
    developing brains.
  • National Institutes of Health April 26, 2001.

Mercury Horse Drug Recalled by The FDA
  • Drug contains mercury poisonous to horses and
    people
  • Purchasers should not use it
  • Contact local waste-management authorities to
    learn how to destroy it without endangering
    animals, people, or waterways
  • The Salt Lake Tribune, June 1, 2002
  • The FDA Protects Horses from Mercury
  • Why Dont They Recall Mercury-Containing
    Vaccines?

40
Mercury Poisoning
  • By the age of two, American children have
    received 237 micrograms of mercury through
    vaccines.
  • This far exceeds the EPA safe levels of 0.1
    mcg/kg per day. Thats one-tenth of a microgram,
    not one microgram.

Mercury Poisoning
  • Four days in particular may be singled out as
    spectacularly toxic for infants
  • 1. Day of birth Hepatitis B12 mcg mercury (30
    times safe level).
  • 2. Four months DTaP and Hib on same day50 mcg
    mercury (60 times safe level).
  • 3. Six months Hepatitis B, Polio62.5 mcg
    mercury (78 times safe level).
  • 4. Fifteen months another 50 mcg (41 times safe
    level.

Mercury Poisoning
  • These figures are calculated for an infants
    average weight in kilograms for each age. These
    one-day blasts of mercury are called bolus
    doses. There has never been any research
    conducted on the toxicity of such doses.

Confidential Report
  • On October 17, 2001 the law firm of Waters
    Kraus revealed a confidential report by the
    Centers for Disease Control which studied autism
    as a neurological injury caused by mercury in
    vaccines.

44
Confidential Report
  • The CDC report stated
  • We found increasing risks of neurological
    developmental disorder.
  • Disorders noted were
  • Developmental Speech Disorder
  • Autism
  • Stuttering
  • Attention Deficit Disorder

45
Confidential Report
  • The study found a 2.48 times increased risk of
    autism.
  • Children with mercury exposure were more than
    twice as likely to develop autism as children not
    exposed.

46
Confidential Report
  • U.S. law states that
  • In a vaccine injury case, a relative risk
    greater than 2.0 establishes that there is a
    greater than 50 chance that the injury was
    caused by the vaccine.
  • New Yorkers for Vaccination Information and
    Choice, press release by Waters Kraus, Dallas,
    Texas

47
Altered Report
  • A different version was made public and claimed
    results were inconclusive as to whether the
    mercury in vaccines has caused a nationwide
    epidemic of regressive autism and other
    neurological disorders in small children.

5 Drug Makers Use Material with Possible Mad Cow
Link
  • The FDA has repeatedly asked pharmaceutical
    companies not to use materials from cows raised
    in countries at risk of Mad Cow Disease.
  • Five companies making nine vaccines, some given
    to millions of American children, used at-risk
    bovine materialbut the FDA didnt discover this
    for seven years.

49
Drug Makers Use Material with Possible Mad Cow
Link
  • The list of vaccines that may be at risk for Mad
    Cow Disease/nCJD transmission are
  • 1. ActHIB, sold by Aventis Pasteur
  • 2. OmniHIB, sold by GlaxcoSmithKline
  • 3. Infanrix, sold by GlaxcoSmith Kline (DPT)
  • 4. Certiva, sold by North American Vaccine, now a
    unit of Baxter International (DPT)
  • New York Times, February 8, 2001

50
Drug Makers Use Material with Possible Mad Cow
Link
  • List of vaccines using materials from unknown
    geographic origin
  • 1. IPOL, sold by Aventis Pasteur (polio)
  • 2. Pnu-Imune 23, sold by American Home Products
    Lederle Laboratories (pneumoccocal diseases)
  • 3. Anthrax vaccine, sold by BioPort
  • 4. Rabies vaccine, sold by BioPort
  • New York Times, February 8, 2001

51
Mad Polio Vaccine
  • Reuters News reported on December 19, 2001 that
  • The Blood of Irish CJD (Creutzfeldt Jakob
    Disease, human mad cow) used in Making of
    83,000 doses of Polio Vaccine

52
Polio Vaccine Harbored Monkey Virus Now Feared to
Cause Cancer
  • Simian virus 40 (SV40) was in the vaccine monkey
    culture given to tens of millions of Americans in
    the 1950s and 60s.
  • Dozens of studies have shown SV40 in rare brain,
    bone, and lung tumors.
  • Worse, this virus has been found in people who
    never received the contaminated vaccine.
    Researchers believe that those infected by the
    vaccine may be spreading the virus.
  • No government studies planned Its not our
    highest priority.

Hepatitis B Vaccine Adverse Reactions
  • Associated with prevalent arthritis
  • Acute ear infections
  • Pharyngitis/nasopharyngitis (throat and nasal
    infections)
  • Evidence from this study suggests that hepatitis
    B vaccine is positively associated with adverse
    health outcomes in the general population of US
    children.

Autism
  • Autism impairs the two things that make us human
    language and bonding patterns.
  • Is the huge increase in autism a result of better
    reporting?
  • Dr. Candace Pert states
  • Better diagnosis might account for a 30 or 50
    increase. But were talking about 500 to 600
    increases... compared to a baseline of ten years
    ago.

57
Autism
  • Dr. Pert says autism has a new form Regressive
    Autism where children seem totally fine and then
    regress at a year and a half old. This is just
    around the time they get the vaccines. Many
    mothers believe that its the vaccines.
  • The key is that the brain is still developing at
    18 months, and the parts that are developing are
    language and eye contact, the very things that
    become deranged in autism.
  • Interviewed by Daniel Redwood, D.C. in Healthy
    Net June 24, 2000

DTP Vaccines
  • In a study published in Pediatrics, Randolph
    Byers and Frederick Moll, of Harvard Medical
    School along with the FDA, tests at Childrens
    Hospital in Boston showed that severe
    neurological problems could follow the
    administration of DTP vaccines.

DTP Vaccines (2)
  • According to the Assistant Secretary of Health,
    Edward Grant, Jr. before a U.S. Senate Committee
    on May 3,1985
  • Every year 35,000 children suffer neurological
    damage related to the DTP vaccine.

DTP Vaccines (3)
  • In 1992, the Institute of Medicine concluded
  • The evidence is consistent with a causal
    relation between DPT vaccine and acute
    encephalopathy . . . between the pertussis
    component of DPT and protracted, inconsolable
    crying.

The Rest of the 1796 Smallpox Story They Dont
Tell You
  • James Phipps, the 8-year-old vaccinated by
    William Jenner, was revaccinated 20 times. He
    died at age 20.
  • Jenners own son, who was also vaccinated more
    than once, died at 21.

The Model States Emergency Health Powers Act
  • Forces you to be vaccinated for smallpox even if
    it kills you.
  • Gives non-medical authorities the power to
    arrest, quarantine, and forcibly vaccinate.
  • Allows homes to be confiscated without
    compensation if labeled infectious by state
    authorities.

63
At a Chicago CDC Meeting (June 8, 2002) official
admitted
  • Smallpox is not explosively contagious.
  • The virus is not spread through food or water.
  • Contact face-to-face for more than 7 days is
    required for transmission.
  • There is no carrier state only contagious after
    blisters develop.
  • The 30 fatality rate mostly occurred in
    Bangladesh and Central Africa and is based on old
    data.
  • The deaths occurred from potentially treatable
    complications, not from the disease itself.

Conflict of Interest in Vaccine and Government
Bureaucracies
65
Congressional Hearings Revealed
  • Members of the FDA and CDC advisory committees
    who approve new vaccines also own stock in the
    drug companies that make the vaccines.
  • These members also own patents for vaccines under
    consideration.
  • Three out of five members of the FDAs advisory
    committee who voted on the failed rotavirus
    vaccine had conflicts of interest that were
    waived.

66
Congressional Hearings Also Revealed
  • The CDCs advisory committee has no public
    members. The FDAs committee has only one public
    member.
  • Dr. Harry Greenberg, chair of the FDA committee
    had to be excluded from the vote on the rotavirus
    since he owns the patent.
  • Dr. Greenberg is a paid member of the board of
    advisors of Chiron, another vaccine manufacturer
    and owns 40,000 of its stock. He also owns
    120,000 in stock in Avion, a vaccine
    manufacturer.

67
Have we traded mumps and measles for cancer and
leukemia?
  • Vaccinations against relatively harmless
    childhood diseases may have caused the dramatic
    increase in autoimmune diseases like cancer,
    leukemia, multiple sclerosis, lupus, rheumatoid
    arthritis, and Lou Gehrigs disease.
