Doctor-Scientist-Confused-Questions-460

Sunday, February 01, 2015
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger

(NaturalNews) The surest sign of a medical dictatorship is an aggressively enforced blockade against intelligent questions. Intelligent questions, after all, can destroy a medical police state because they expose the fraud of it.

Intelligent questions — which the vaccine industry characterizes as “dangerous” — are the greatest threat to the vaccine delusions still being played out across the world today, which is precisely why such questions are not allowed to be asked. Those daring to ask such questions are now being threatened with mass arrest and imprisonment — that’s how vulnerable the fraudulent vaccine industry has now become. It can be brought down by mere words if only those words are allowed to be circulated.

What sort of questions are we not allowed to ask? Here are 21 censored questions the obedient, pharma-controlled mainstream media will never dare ask:

Question #1) If measles vaccines confer measles immunity, then why do already-vaccinated children have anything to fear from a measles outbreak?

Question #2) If vaccines work so well, then why did Merck virologists file a False Claims Act with the U.S. government, describing the astonishing scientific fraud of how Merck faked its vaccine results to trick the FDA?

Question #3) If vaccines don’t have any links to autism, then why did a top CDC scientist openly confess to the CDC committing scientific fraud by selectively omitting clinical trial data after the fact in order to obscure an existing link between vaccines and autism?

His exact statement, published on the website of his legal counsel:

My name is William Thompson. I am a Senior Scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, where I have worked since 1998. I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed.

Question #4) If mercury is a neurotoxic chemical (which it is), then why is it still being injected into children and pregnant women via vaccines? Why does the vaccine industry refuse to remove all the mercury from vaccines in the interests of protecting children from mercury?

The U.S. government tells us that lead in water is BAD, but mercury in vaccines is GOOD!

Question #5) If vaccines are so incredibly safe, then why does the vaccine industry need absolute legal immunity from all harm caused by its products?

Question #6) If vaccines work so well to prevent disease, then why do some vaccines (like the chickenpox vaccine) openly admit that they can cause the spread of chickenpox?

Question #7) If vaccines are so great for public health, then why do these historical public health charts show nearly all the declines in infectious disease taking place BEFORE vaccines arrived on the scene?

Question #8) If vaccines are perfectly safe, then why did at least 13 people recently die in Italy after being vaccinated?

Question #9) If vaccines are so trustworthy, then why did a pro-vaccine group in Africa recently discover — to its shock and horror — that vaccines being given to young African women were secretly laced with abortion chemicals?

Question #10) If vaccines are backed by solid science, then why do some vaccine inserts openly admit they are backed by no clinical trials?

…there have been no controlled trials adequately demonstrating a decrease in influenza disease after vaccination with FLULAVAL.

Question #11) If vaccines are so safe, then why does this vaccine insert admit that the Gardasil vaccine causes “acute respiratory illness” in babies who consume the breast milk of mothers who have been vaccinated?

Question #12) If vaccines are so safe, then why does this Gardasil insert sheet admit that the vaccine causes “seizure-like activity, headache, fever, nausea and dizziness” and can even cause those injected with the vaccine to lose consciousness and fall, resulting in injury?

Question #13) If vaccines are totally safe, then why do vaccine insert sheets disclose a long list of frightening and bizarre side effects associated with their vaccines?

Just some of the adverse effects experienced after flu shot vaccines include:

• Convulsions and seizures
• Guillian-Barre Syndrome
• Cranial nerve paralysis or limb paralysis
• Swelling of the brain
• Partial facial paralysis
… and much more. See the text yourself:

Question #14) If vaccines are backed by so much “science” then why do they frequently admit there really aren’t any studies of the vaccine for the very groups of people who are often injected with it?

Gardasil-Vaccine-Insert-9-460

Question #15) If vaccines are so safe to give to pregnant women, then why do the vaccine insert sheets openly admit most of them have never been tested for safety in pregnant women? In fact, this vaccine admits “the effects of the vaccine in fetal development are unknown.”

Question #16) If vaccines are so safe to be injected into the bodies of children and pregnant women, then why do their own insert sheets readily admit they are manufactured with a cocktail of toxic chemical ingredients including “fetal bovine serum?” (The blood serum of aborted baby cows.)

Varivax-Vaccine-Insert-11-460

Varivax-Vaccine-Insert-15-460

Question #17) If vaccines achieve absolute immunity, then why are as many as 97 percent of children struck by infectious disease already vaccinated against that disease?

Question #18) If vaccines are totally safe and effective, then why did this five-year-old girl recently die from the very strain of flu she was just vaccinated against?

Question #19) If the mainstream media claims to report honest, unbiased information about vaccines, then why was there a total nationwide blackout on the news of the CDC whistleblower admitting vaccines are linked to autism?

This was one of the most censored medical news stories of 2014, and the CDC’s criminal cover-up stretches back more than 12 years…

Question #20) Why does the CDC falsely claim all vaccines are completely safe and effective when its own website still lists the toxic chemical ingredients used in vaccines?

The CDC openly admits that mercury, formaldehyde, MSG, aluminum, antibiotics and other chemicals are still used in vaccines. Here’s a screen shot from the CDC website’s vaccine additives page that confirms this:

Question #21) If the vaccine industry cares so much about children, then why does it call for the arrest of parents and the breaking up of families of unvaccinated children, begging for the state to seize custody of those children at gunpoint while incarcerating the parents in prison?

It is dangerous to let the public behind the scenes. They are easily disillusioned and then they are angry with you, for it was the illusion they loved.” – W. Somerset Maugham

By Roman Bystrianyk and Suzanne Humphries

Medical history books, almost uniformly extol the virtues of vaccination. Upon reading these books, one is left with the impression that during the 1800s and into the 1900s, there were rampant plagues that killed countless scores of people and that, because of vaccines, this is no longer the case. This is certainly what we believed growing up, and most people we talk to have a similar impression. It generally permeates society as an established fact.

It is difficult to underestimate the contribution of immunization to our well-being. It has been estimated that, were it not for childhood vaccinations against diphtheria, pertussis, measles, mumps, smallpox, and rubella, as well as protection afforded by vaccines against tetanus, cholera, yellow fever, polio, influenza, hepatitis B, bacterial pneumonia, and rabies, childhood death rates would probably hover in the range of 20 to 50%. Indeed, in countries where vaccination is not practiced, the death rates among infants and young children remain at that level. [1]

Paul Offit talks in his recent book Deadly Choices—How the Anti-Vaccine Movement Threatens Us All about how the whooping cough vaccine has reduced deaths from that disease from 7,000 to only 30.

Whooping cough (pertussis) is a devastating infection. Before a vaccine was first used in the United States in the 1940s, about three hundred thousand cases of whooping cough caused seven thousand deaths every year, almost all in young children. Now, because of the pertussis vaccine, fewer than thirty children die every year from the disease. But times are changing. [2]

This type of information can even be found in medical journals. A lengthy study on whooping cough and the whooping cough vaccine was published in 1988 in the journal Pediatrics. The first paragraph of the paper states the following:

In the United States, pertussis has been successfully controlled by routine mass immunization of infants and children. In the prevaccine era, there were 115,000 to 270,000 cases of pertussis and 5,000 to 10,000 deaths due to the disease each year. During the last 10 years, there have been 1,200 to 4,000 cases and five to ten deaths per year. [3]

That paragraph set the tone for the rest of the article by indicating that thousands of people died each year from whooping cough, but after the DTP vaccine was introduced, very few died. Anyone who believed this statement would, of course, believe in the benefit of the vaccine.

The problem with these statements is that they are not supported by the evidence. When we look at the actual data, we see that although many people did die from whooping cough in the early part of the 1900s, by the time the vaccine had been introduced the death rate in the United States had declined by more than 90 percent. Using the source that was referenced to make the statement in the Pediatrics paper, we see that the decline in deaths from the peak was approximately 92 percent before the introduction of the DTP vaccine. [4]

Pertussis decline in the United States 1900 to 1957

The article in the journal Pediatrics is quite damaging because it would have been read primarily by doctors, leaving many with the impression that vaccines were completely responsible for the decline in deaths. The actual number of deaths by the time of the introduction of the DTP vaccine was approximately 1,200—not the 5,000 to 10,000 often cited. Again, this faulty thinking that vaccines were responsible for the lion’s share of mortality decline is pervasive in all corners of society.

An additional important point to notice is that when looking at the graph you can clearly see that each year the trend was that of a decrease in deaths from whooping cough. At the point the vaccine was introduced there was no apparent effect in the downward trend.

Another data set from England starting at the beginning of the 20th century shows the lack of impact of the vaccines even more dramatically. Here you can see that the death rate had fallen by over 98% before the national use of the DTP vaccine in the 1950s.

Pertussis decline in England from 1900

England began keeping statistics in 1838, which was 62 years before official U.S. statistics were gathered. Looking at this data, we can see that the death rate from infectious diseases was high during the 1800s and declined from the mid-1800s to the mid-1900s to almost zero. Looking at the whooping coughs death from England, deaths had decreased by more than 99 percent before any vaccine.

Pertussis decline in England from 1838

In the case of measles, the death rate had declined by almost 100 percent.

Measles decline in England from 1838

Analysis of the data shows this often-repeated mantra that vaccines were key in the decline of infectious disease deaths is a fallacy. Deaths had decreased by massive amounts before vaccinations. In the case of scarlet fever and other infectious diseases, deaths declined to near zero without any widespread vaccination.

Scarlet fever decline in England from 1838

Unfortunately, this erroneous belief has led people to trust in vaccination as the sole way to handle infectious diseases when there were clearly other factors that caused mortality to decline. Those factors were improved hygiene, sanitation, nutrition, labor laws, electricity, chlorination, refrigeration, pasteurization, and many other facets that we now generally take for granted as part of modern life. Very little of the improvement in the death rate had anything to do with medicine. A 1977 report estimated that, at best, approximately 3 percent of the mortality decline from infectious disease could be attributed to modern medical care.

In general, medical measures (both chemotherapeutic and prophylactic) appear to have contributed little to the overall decline in mortality in the United States since about 1900—having in many instances been introduced several decades after a marked decline had already set in and having no detectable influence in most instances. More specifically, with reference to those five conditions (influenza, pneumonia, diphtheria, whooping cough, and poliomyelitis) for which the decline in mortality appears substantial after the point of intervention—and on the unlikely assumption that all of this decline is attributable to the intervention . . . it is estimated that at most 3.5 percent of the total decline in mortality since 1900 could be ascribed to medical measures introduced for the diseases considered here. [5]

The emphasis today on more and more vaccines, is in part built on this ingrained thinking. The fact that deaths from infectious diseases declined so greatly before vaccines and antibiotics, is ignored. This lapse in study has created a situation where we could have learned a better way to manage all infections in a more comprehensive way. Yet, to this day, despite such a phenomenal transformation, we have failed to learn the lessons of this history. The solutions that led to a 99 percent decline in death has been ignored, with the entire emphasis on the final 1 percent, which would have occurred anyway even without a vaccine.

However, in some corners, there is recognition that vaccines were not what caused the major decline in infectious disease mortality. They often erroneously point to antibiotics and improved medical care and grudgingly give some credit to sanitation and other factors. There is little curiosity as to how all these factors worked and how they still apply today. The shift on emphasis is now on the incidence of disease after vaccination with a decreased emphasis on mortality. The thinking goes that, by wiping out the disease with vaccines, there is no risk of death. This appears to be a reasonable approach. How well has it worked?

Let’s take whooping cough as an example. In 1979 Sweden withdrew use of the DTP vaccine on the basis that it was not effective and possibly unsafe. The fear, of course, would be that with lower vaccination rates, the death rate would increase. So what happened in this case?

A 1995 letter from Victoria Romanus at the Swedish Institute of Infectious Disease Control indicated that deaths from whooping cough remained near zero. Sweden’s population was 8,294,000 in 1979 and 8,831,000 by 1995. From 1981 to 1993, eight children were recorded as dying, with the cause of death listed as pertussis. This averaged to be about 0.6 children per year possibly dying from whooping cough. These numbers show that the odds of dying from pertussis in Sweden were about 1 in 13,000,000 even when there was no national vaccination program. [6]

In another case, DTP vaccination coverage in England dropped from about 78 percent to 30 or 40 percent because of concerns over safety. The assumption was that there would be an increase in deaths due to the decreased coverage. The years from 1976 to 1980 were the ones when vaccination rates were at their lowest. Using official statistics, the number of deaths in those years totaled 35. The deaths from the previous five years (1971 to 1975), while vaccination rates were higher, totaled 55, or about 1.5 times greater than when vaccination rates were lower. [7] This was directly opposite what is generally believed should have happened.

And have whooping cough rates really been controlled? The sad truth is that whooping cough never really went away and is endemic. Huge numbers of people still cough from Bordetella pertussis, the bacteria involved in whooping cough. Because of waning vaccine- immunity, up to one-third of persistent coughs are whooping cough.

Although pertussis traditionally has been considered a disease of childhood, it was well-documented in adults nearly a century ago and is currently recognized as an important cause of respiratory disease in adolescents and adults, including the elderly. Because of waning immunity, adult and adolescent pertussis can occur even when there is a history of full immunization or natural disease . . . Studies from Canada, Denmark, Germany, France, and the United States indicate that between 12 and 32% of adults and adolescents with a coughing illness for at least 1 week are infected with Bordetella pertussis. [8]

Let’s focus on another infectious disease—measles. Keep in mind that by 1963, almost no one died from measles. During this year, the whole of New England had only five deaths (Maine: 1, New Hampshire: 0, Vermont: 3, Massachusetts: 0, Rhode Island: 1, Connecticut: 0) that were attributed to measles. [9] Deaths from asthma were actually 56 times greater than from measles during that year.

But did incidence decline as vaccine proponents emphasize? There are some graphs you can find on the Internet that claim there was little decrease in incidence. The graph I have seen that shows this only has a few data points and a line between two distant points in time. This graph is of poor quality and draws an incorrect conclusion. Looking at more comprehensive incidence data, we can see a drop in incidence in 1963 at the introduction of the measles vaccine.

Measles incidence and mortality in the United States

Measles incidence did apparently dramatically drop after 1963. But can this drop be completely attributed to the success of the measles vaccine? The early measles vaccine that contained “killed” virus was an aluminum-precipitated vaccine produced from formaldehyde-inactivated monkey kidney cell cultures. A study from 1967 revealed that the vaccine could cause pneumonia as well as encephalopathy (inflammation of the brain).

Pneumonia is a consistent and prominent finding. Fever is severe and persistent and the degree of headache, when present, suggests a central nervous system involvement. Indeed one patient in our series who was examined by EEG, evidence of disturbed electrical activity of the brain was found, suggestive of encephalopathy . . . These untoward results of inactivated measles virus immunization was unanticipated. The fact that they have occurred should impose a restriction on the use of inactivated measles virus vaccine. We now recommend that inactivated measles virus vaccine should no longer be administered. [10]

The killed vaccines were quickly abandoned. [11] But there were also significant issues with the live vaccines, which were not highly attenuated and produced a “modified measles” rash in about half of those injected—essentially equivalent to a case of measles. Forty-eight percent of people had rash, and 83 percent had fevers up to 106°F post-injection.

So how did measles incidence drop so dramatically after the 1963 vaccine? In part, it had to do with a definition. If you had a high fever and you had a vaccine, of course you didn’t have measles even if you were sicker than you would have been if you contracted measles naturally.

Back in the 1960s, it was expected that a single shot would protect you for life without serious effects, which would later turn out not to be true.

The United State Public Health Service licensed a new, refined, live-measles vaccine. Although several live vaccines have been licensed since 1963—all of them one-shot treatments that give life immunity without serious side-effects—the new one is considered by epidemiologists as “the best so far in minimizing the side-effects.” [12]

Claims were even made in the 1960s that only a certain number of children needed to be vaccinated in order to wipe out measles.

Measles, the “harmless” childhood disease that can kill, will be nearly eradicated from most areas of the country a year from now, officials of the United States Public Health Service predict . . . Although there are still more than 12 million susceptible children, vaccination of the “right” two million to four million youngsters could wipe out the disease, according to Dr. Robert J. Warren of the Communicable Disease Center in Atlanta. [13]

More than a decade later, the objective of measles elimination was still not achieved. There were repeat epidemics that happened throughout the United States.

By 1989 the new theory on failure to eradicate was that the earlier vaccines were not as effective as originally believed. Some of the first vaccines mass produced in 1963 contained a killed virus. In 1989 Dr. Feigin of Texas Children’s Hospital stated that he believed the 1963 vaccine was “not widely effective” and that the 1967 vaccine was unsta¬ble and lost its “effectiveness” if not properly refrigerated. It was not until 1980 that a stable live measles vaccine became available. [14]

In the same year, after three types of measles vaccines had failed to produce eradication or even predictable herd immunity, vaccine scientists changed course from one shot and stated that, in using the new live vaccine, two doses would be required for reliable protection. They also recommended that everyone under the age of 32 be revaccinated because the old vaccines they received were inadequate. The single shot once promised to provide lifelong immunity against measles in the 1960s was never produced.

And was the measles incidence declining before 1963 anyway? Looking at the measles incidence data, the trend line shows that incidence was on the decline.

Measles incidence trend in the United States

In fact, if that trend line held, measles incidence would have hit zero by around the year 2000. This is actually the year when the CDC declared measles had been eliminated from the United States.

So were all these vaccines worth the cost, effort, and adverse reactions to tackle what was by 1963 considered a mild childhood illness?

When we hear about vaccines, we are often told a simple story of how they stimulate antibodies. The theory goes that the stimulation of antibodies creates a memory of a disease so the next time you encounter it, your body will quickly defeat the enemy. It’s a nice, simple, and easy-to-remember story.

Believing you understand the immune system because you hear the words “antibodies” and “protection” mentioned together is like thinking you know how a car really works because you see it has wheels. The immune system is a highly complex, still-poorly understood entity, composed of many different cell lines, each producing different chemicals that are released into the blood. These chemicals are used by the body and are affected by age, stress, nutritional status, environment, and a whole host of factors that are barely understood.

“. . . the immune system remains a black box,” says Garry Fathman, MD, a professor of immunology and rheumatology and associate director of the Institute for Immunology, Transplantation and Infection . . . “It’s staggeringly complex, comprising at least 15 different interacting cell types that spew dozens of different molecules into the blood to communicate with one another and to do battle. Within each of those cells sit tens of thousands of genes whose activity can be altered by age, exercise, infection, vaccination status, diet, stress, you name it. . . . That’s an awful lot of moving parts. And we don’t really know what the vast majority of them do, or should be doing . . . [15]

The immune system is traditionally divided into the humoral immune system that is involved with antibodies and the cellular immune system that does not involve antibodies but entails the activation of various cells such as natural killer cells. What we do know is that, contrary to popular belief, antibodies are not necessary when it comes to full measles recovery.

. . . children with antibody deficiency syndromes have quite unremarkable attacks of measles with the characteristic rash and normal recovery. Furthermore, they are not unduly prone to reinfection. It therefore seems that serum antibody, at any rate in any quantity, is not required for the production of the measles rash; nor for the normal recovery from the disease; nor to prevent reinfection. [16]

Children with a deficit in antibody production, called agamma-globulinemia, recover from measles just as well as normal antibody producers, and this has been known since the late 1960s when vaccines were being developed and advanced. But antibody response is really the only thing that is talked about and promoted when it comes to vaccines. Because this knowledge disturbed the simplistic antibody-protection paradigm, it was considered a “disconcerting” discovery in this 1968 medical paper.

One of the most disconcerting discoveries in clinical medicine was the finding that children with congenital agamma-globulinaemia, who could make no antibody and had only insignificant traces of immunoglobulin in circulation, contracted measles in normal fashion, showed the usual sequence of symptoms and signs, and were subsequently immune. [17]

How does nutrition play a role in disease? Discovered in the 1920s, vitamin A was dubbed the “anti-infective” vitamin. It alone has a tremendous impact on measles deaths. During the 1990s, mortality reductions of 60 to 90 percent were measured in poor countries using vitamin A in hospitalized measles cases.

Combined analyses showed that massive doses of vitamin A given to patients hospitalized with measles were associated with an approximately 60% reduction in the risk of death overall, and with an approximate 90% reduction among infants . . . Administration of vitamin A to children who developed pneumonia before or during hospital stay reduced mortality by about 70% compared with control children. [18]

Availability of vitamin C-rich fruits and vegetables was another factor in disease morbidity and mortality reduction. There were improving trends in overall nutrition, as seen by a parallel in the decline in deaths from measles and the vitamin C deficiency disease, scurvy. Experiments done in the 1940s showed that vitamin C was effective against measles, especially when used in higher doses.

During an epidemic [of measles] vitamin C was used prophylactically and all those who received as much as 1000 mg. every six hours, by vein or muscle, were protected from the virus. Given by mouth, 1000 mg. in fruit juice every two hours was not protective unless it was given around the clock. It was further found that 1000 mg. by mouth, four to six times each day, would modify the attack; with the appearance of Koplik’s spots and fever, if the administration was increased to 12 doses each 24 hours, all signs and symptoms would disappear in 48 hours. [19]

In the early 1900s, other treatments were being successfully used to treat measles. In 1919 Dr. Drummond commented that cinnamon oil was an effective prophylactic against measles or that it made measles milder.

It has been my practice, when I meet with a case of measles in a family, to prescribe a course of cinnamon for all unprotected members of the family. In the majority of cases the person so treated [with cinnamon] escaped the disease [measles] altogether, or else had it in very mild form. [20]

Nutrition and other factors have a big impact on measles, so why aren’t we talking about them at all? Because the emphasis is always on a single, highly lucrative medical procedure—vaccination. This sole paradigm has swept virtually all other strategies to the wayside.

Another key factor to consider is that measles vaccine does not create lifelong immunity, whereas natural infection with measles does. The only way to remain immune with artificial immunity via vaccines is to be vaccinated several times during a lifetime. We have not yet seen how the vaccine will play out over several generations of exclusively vaccinated people. Epidemics are likely to become more common in the future.

A 2009 study published in Proceedings of the Royal Society investigated what could happen with waning measles vaccine immunity even with high vaccine coverage among children. They predicted that, after a long disease-free period in the population, the introduction of infection will lead to far larger epidemics than predicted by standard models.

We can foresee that vaccination will have two conflicting effects . . . it will reduce the number of newborn susceptibles and hence should have some of the usual associated public-health benefits reducing the number of cases in young children. However, this reduction in cases will lead to a reduction in boosting and therefore a greater susceptibility to infection in older age classes . . . When immunity wanes, vaccination has a far more limited impact on the average number of cases. While this observation has clear public-health implications, the dynamic consequences of the interaction between vaccination, waning immunity and boosting are far more striking. For high levels of vaccination (greater than 80%) and moderate levels of waning immunity (greater than 30 years), large-scale epidemic cycles can be induced. [21]

A 1984 study [22] reported that by 2050, the proportion of measles susceptibles may be greater than in the pre-vaccine era. So have we created a ticking time bomb with waning immunity? Will there actually be bigger measles epidemics in the future? If there are, the response will probably be to blame the unvaccinated, which has in fact been done for over 100 years, and then to enforce more vaccinations upon different age groups.

Because of the zealous pro-vaccine bias that permeates society, the true forces that drove the major decline in deaths from infectious diseases are not acknowledged. At most, there is a slight admission that “sanitation” has some effect, but better medical care and antibiotics are still given the credit.

Groups of individuals who have anointed themselves as “skeptics” seek to derail anything that questions vaccination. The definition of skeptic used to be “one who instinctively or habitually doubts, questions, or disagrees with assertions or generally accepted conclusions,” but this definition in its modern usage has been hijacked and transformed to someone that essentially blindly supports any orthodox position as gospel. These people will continue on their crusade of supporting vaccines at all costs and to assail anything that might question their myopic view. If those people had a desire to learn the truth, perhaps they would peek beneath the hood of infectious diseases and vaccines, and learn a little more. Imagine what could be in the trunk!

Heavy-Metals

By TLB Contributor: Anna Rodgers

Yes. You have read correctly, but this statement sure as heck didn’t come from me. I know that the opposite is true, that heavy metals and other toxins are incredibly dangerous and natural chemicals are far safer than synthetics. But there are many people and organizations out there, (with history proving time and time again) that just don’t want you to think this way.

They want you to ignore the truth and to live a life where you don’t take any control over your health, where you continue to buy all of the toxic products, dangerous medications and most importantly, do not take a stand about what the annual 3 trillion dollar chemical industry has done to all of us.

Let me tell you the back ground story of who is behind this ridiculous and very dangerous statement. Back in May of this year, one of the most popular newspapers in the UK, The Sun, wrote about my newly released, controversial book Toxic World, Toxic People.  On page 6, there was a full page dedicated to one of the chapters, Common Deadly Environmental Toxins from my book.

The article, ‘What’s Your Poison’ by  journalist Helen Glibert, discussed 4 common toxins that we are all surrounded by daily. These 4 are, aluminum, mercury, lead and cadmium. Surprisingly, Helen wrote a credible piece, highlighting that aluminum exposure (and accumulation) can trigger cancer and lead to Alzheimer’s. [1] She also pointed out how mercury from fillings can leak, and prove to be toxic to the body. [2]

For me personally, to see the truth exposed in a mainstream media outlet was very exciting. Would people finally take notice and realize we are all being bombarded with heavy metals and chemicals in our daily lives?

Within a few days, the article and I had been targeted by a group called ‘Sense About Science’, who wrote a truly ridiculous response to the article. Their article titled ‘The Moon – Tackling Misconceptions About Chemicals’  [3] was to tell the public that I was scaring people, there’s nothing to worry about when it comes to proven deadly neurotoxins such as mercury, aluminum, and lead.

Now, I’m assuming those that read Collective Evolution are a pretty cluey bunch of people – you don’t take crap, you know when someone is trying to pull the wool over your eyes, and you mostly likely are aware of things that most others are not. You also probably know that there’s a serious amount of people out there who want the truth about our health concealed, mainly in the name of corporate profit.

After I saw Sense About Science take a little hit at me, I decided to do some digging to see who these nancy naysayers actually were. Did they have credibility, who and what else do they ridicule and where the heck did they get their funding from?

The Bullies Of All Things ‘Alternative’

Well, it sure didn’t take me long to realize my suspicions were absolutely right on the money.

This organization is known to target anything and everything ‘alternative’. They rubbish homeopathy, are pro-vaccine, have very strong ties to GMO’s, are connected to political groups and have been behind some pretty nasty bullying campaigns targeting authors such as Patrick Holdford who wrote the groundbreaking book ‘Food Is Better Medicine Than Drugs’. I’ve since read a lot about this group and boy, they are certainly very dirty players.

And take a guess where Sense About Science get their funding from…a whole bunch of Cancer organizations, Alzheimer Societies, Drug Companies AND Chemical companies.  Yep, you can see it for yourself, right here.

When I discovered this, I suddenly became very aware that what I have written about in my book has made me a target by the chemical industry. They see this, along with all the other authors out there like me, trying to bring awareness to what the chemical industry has done to us, as a threat – we are exposing stuff they want people to ignore. Perhaps because they’ve got trillions of dollars at stake.

Imagine that the world suddenly all came to the realization that chemicals are causing most of the cancers, or that aluminum exposure (which we all come into contact with on a daily basis from our foods, beauty products, the air we breathe, the water we drink and medications we take) is the main reason behind the monstrous rise in Alzheimer’s and that we just finally realized collectively we have been, and still are, being lied to on a daily basis.  What would we say to the people and organizations that have been perpetuating these lies and hurting us and our children for decades?

anna-4570 copy

When we know that childhood cancers are the highest they have ever been in all of history, and that if all of this is possibly linked to chemicals, then god damn those companies who put these chemicals out into the world without doing the proper safety testing. They are responsible for destroying the lives of our friends, our family and our children.

‘They’ lied to us about DDT, and said it was safe. We now know undeniably it’s not, because after much pressure, they banned it. They lied to us about lead, a fatally toxic substance. It lowers children’s IQ, harms bone density and causes both concentration problems and behavioural issues such as is commonly seen in autistic children. Lead was also finally banned.

We all know ‘they’ tried to keep the truth about smoking hidden as long as they could. They tried dirty tactics, paid people off, used doctors and scientists to say it was safe until the people rose up and finally sued the tobacco industry.

The question begs, how many other lies are we being told on a daily basis about what is toxic or not?

I wrote the book Toxic World Toxic People to help answer questions like these, and to provide people with solutions as to how to try and beat this chemical epidemic. I’m a mother and I want my daughter  (as well as you and your kids) to have a fighting chance at being healthy. Our kids, and everyone else for that matter, deserve better and we’ve got to fight for it.

It’s not the flu. It’s a conspiracy, according to Dr. Len Horowitz. His opinion is not based on conspiracy theory but on conspiracy fact.

You’re sick. Your nose is stuffy. Your body aches, You’re sweaty, coughing, sneezing and you don’t have enough energy to get out of bed. It’s not the flu. It’s a conspiracy, according to Dr. Len Horowitz. His opinion is not based on conspiracy theory but on conspiracy fact. Over the past 10 years, Horowitz has become America’s most controversial medical authority. A university-trained medical researcher, Horowitz, 48, charges that elements of the United States government are conspiring with major pharmaceutical companies to make large segments of the population sick. The mainstream media is reporting that hospital emergency rooms are jammed with patients suffering from a bizarre upper respiratory infection that doesn’t quite seem like a virus. They are reporting that it’s a “mystery” flu and that the flu vaccines are ineffective against it. “That’s all hogwash, bogus nonsense”, says Dr. Leonard Horowitz. “The fact of the matter is, we have seen this type of an epidemic since the end of 1998 and the beginning of 1999. People have been hacking and coughing with this bizarre illness that does not seem to follow any logical viral or bacterial onset and transition period. If it was a really bacterial or a viral infection, it would have caused a fever but it didn’t It lasts for weeks, if not months. Sinus congestion, sinus drainage, cough, fatigue, general malaise. People have been feeling “off”. The Armed Forces Research Institute of Pathology has registered a patent for the pathogenic micoplasma that is causing the epidemic. You can see the patent report in the book, Healing Codes for the Biblical apocolypse.

Micoplasma is not really a fungus, it’s not really a bacteria, it’s not really a virus. It has no cell wall. It goes deep into the cell nuclei thereby making it very difficult to mount an immune response against it. It’s a man-made biological weapon.The patent report explains how it causes chronic upper respiratory infections that are virtually identical to what’s going on right now.”

CHEMTRAILS DESTROY YOUR IMMUNE FUNCTION

“I believe the chemtrails are responsible for a chemical intoxication of the public, which would then cause a general immune suppression, low grade to high grade, depending on exposure. The immune dysfunction allows people to become susceptible to opportunistic infections, such as this micoplasma and other opportunistic infections”, says Dr. Horowitz.

“I first began to investigate chemtrails when some were sprayed over my home in Northern Idaho. I took pictures of them, and then contacted the Environmental Protection Agency of the state who were clueless and referred me to the Air Force. They got me in touch with Centers for Disease Control Toxicology, and after about a week I received a letter from one of their chief toxicologists saying, indeed there was some amount of ethylene dibromide in the jet fuel.

Ethylene dibromide is a known human chemical carcinogen that was removed from unleaded gasoline because of its cancer-causing effects. Now suddenly it has appeared in the jet fuel that high-altitude military aircraft are emitting!”

Ethylene dibromide is coming out of the jet fuels that is causing immune suppression and weakening people’s immune system. Then you’ve got a micoplasma microbe or a fungus that causes an upper respiratory illness. Suddenly you develop a secondary bacterial infection. Now you get hit with ANTIBIOTICS, and the antibiotics cause your body chemistry to go acidic, so now you get rashes and other things, your liver gets full of toxins and comes out through your skin in rashes and they get hyperallergenic reactions associated with the other chemicals. I’ve got colleagues in the Bahamas, Bermuda, Toronto, British Columbia all reporting the same bizarre seeding of the atmosphere. What is going on is just despicable.

All of a sudden now you’ve got human beings completely out of balance and infected by two, three or four microbial co-factors as well as intoxicated by a variety of different chemicals… and you’ve got somebody who’s going to be chronically ill.

THE BLACK BUDGET

“The Frank Church Congressional Hearings of 1975 exposed the Central Intelligence Agency biological weapons contracting firms – Litton Bionetics and the Army Corp of Engineers who were developing and utilizing various biological weapons on populations. And this is all done under black operations, covert operations, where they get funding and congressional people are never informed really where this money is going. It’s the black budget”, says Horowitz.

“And in the contemporary warfare arena, where experts in biological chemical warfare convene and discuss the ways that are ideal to conduct warfare today, to really take an enemy out, you don’t want to kill the people. You want to produce people who are chronically illand become dependant on the state and totally sap the resources of the country. And then you can move in with your military-medical-industrial complex and your international medical-pharmaceutical cartel. Then you sell these defeated countries all of the pharmaceuticals and chemicals that they need to maintain any semblance of healthy function.

They’re completely depleted. They can’t put together a military. You create a dependence and thereby you weaken the population, and weakened populations are easy to control. So you’ve got population control, and you make vast fortunes doing it, versus just blowing up a nuclear weapon and devastating the infrastructure that you own. You and your colleagues own that infrastructure. You want to get rid of the people. You don’t want to get rid of infrastructure”

WHO’S RESPONSIBLE?

“What I’m relating to you now is not speculation. If you were to read the top experts analysis of military warfare, including The Report From Iron Mountain – the Rockefeller family is one of the major players in this conspiracy. They are one of the major players in world genocide, world population reduction. That’s no mystery anymore.

When you examine who owns the chemtrail fuel, who are the fuel company directors, suddenly you enter into the realm of the Rockefeller family and the royal families – Standard Oil and British Petroleum. And what are their other agendas? Suddenly now you see their documents, showing that they have funded, historically, eugenics, racial hygiene, genocide, depopulation, family planning, maternal and child health – where they make and deliver vaccines, and contaminated blood supplies. These are the banksters, the same people who run the blood banking as well as the money banking industries”, says Dr. Horowitz.

“I reference a great book by Dr. John Coleman, who worked as a British Secret Service agent at the highest levels. And he articulated very clearly who was running those companies. It all goes back, ultimately, to the highest level of the royal family. The Bush family, Rothschild family, the Rockefeller money, and the entire Rockefeller establishment is based on Rothschild money and royal families.

If you can’t explain it rationally or any other way, I think you’ve got to begin to consider conspiracy theories and eliminate the negative label that you’ve placed on conspiracy theories which have been demonized along with wholistic medicine.”

AMERICA’S FOURTH REICH

The ruling crime families are making vast fortunes off of humanity’s suffering. The Rockefellers monopolized American medicine in the 1920s. They, along with I.G. Farben, Germany’s leading industrial organization, held the monopoly on the world’s chemical and pharmaceutical industries.

The Rockefellers and I.G. Farben worked together before World War II and during World War II. For all practical purposes, the Rockefellers and I.G. Farben were the Third Reich.

Who else is involved? The Merck Pharmaceutical Company. Their president, George W. Merck, was America’s biological weapons industry director during World War II. He was personally appointed by President Roosevelt and Secretary of War Stimson.

The Nazis planned for the New World Order. They even had a term for it – “neue Ordnung,” which means New Order, New World Order. This today, this New World Order, is the rise of the Fourth Reich. This is precisely what they envisioned and then carried out on a global scale. The goal of the Fourth Reich is population control and genocide.

99.99 percent of Masons have no clue what they’re really up to at the highest levels. they give you increased knowledge at every higher degree of Freemasonry. When you get beyond the 33rd degree, you get the highest indoctrination into what’s called the Ancient Arcana, the ancient sacred knowledge described in the book Healing Codes of the Biblical Apocalypse. That’s where the devil-doers who are running this planet are nesting.

How does a person become that high in the Masonic organization? Through bloodlines. You’ve got to be major royalty, major royalty, ideally a descendent or you’ve got to be somebody who is very close to the royalty, the major bloodlines.

WHO ARE THEY TARGETING?

Who are they targeting for genocide? If there’s an attempt underway to reduce the population of the planet, why isn’t it happening?

“Look at countries like those in Africa, Third World nations that have been heavily targeted with HIV/AIDS. And consider that 73 percent of HIV/AIDS patients in America today are Black or Hispanic. Statistically, 55 percent of gay men in America are already dead. Are you seeing depopulation specifically targeting minority groups now? Of course. It’s happening right now.

They don’t want to totally eliminate populations completely, just certain populations. And isn’t it, from their perspective, wonderful? They’ve got a covert depopulation agenda that nobody’s picked up on yet. It’s ideally what they want to produce.

It’s not just about the money. I think there’s a Satanic or evil ideology, because Nixon himself said, referring to the Rockefellers, – it’s not about money for these people, it’s about power.

THE MONOPOLY GAME

At the end of the Monopoly game, what do you do? One person wins, they own all of the real estate, they own all of the assets, they’ve wiped all the other players out and the game is over. You can out the game away in your closet. But you don’t do that on planet earth.

The person who wins at the end of this World Monopoly Game gets to rearrange the board. And that’s precisely what we’ve seen in the last year. You’ve seen not the biggest fish eating the biggest fish in international commerce, you have seen the mega-whales eating the mega-whales in these mega-mergers. All these little companies that are producing your vitamins are a subsidiary of a major conglomerate. Today a Warner Lambert or Glaxo Wellcom, all of these huge, huge corporations own all the little fish. They buy them out. So, again, now the game board gets to be changed if they desire, and apparently that’s what they desire. That’s their agenda, you can see it.

At the Denver Airport, there’s a capstone, in the main terminal building dedicated to the New World Airport Commission by the Freemasons. And there’s a big colorful mural – that is dedicated to the extinct human species. And in the foreground, against the horrific backdrop of flames and destruction, there are three open coffins.

BUILD YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM

STEP ONE: Detoxification.

Because we’ve all been fed Babylon’s harvest and eaten the toxic garbage that comes from Monsanto, Dow Chemical and Archer Daniel and all their genetically engineered foods and the chemicals and the fluorides and the chlorine’s  we need to detox. An easy detoxification program using fresh squeezed lemonade that you make with maple syrup and fresh squeezed lemons and cayenne pepper.

STEP TWO: Deacidification

To change your body’s chemistry, make it more alkaline. It’s only in the acid state that the growth of bacteria, viruses, fungus, molds, and cancer, cancer cells thrive. They cannot grow in an alkaline environment. What causes your body chemistry to go acidic and become a breeding ground for the bacterial and infectious agents? Caffeine, nicotine, sugar, refined carbohydrates, alcohol, pharmaceuticals including antibiotics, red meats, stress – are the main causes. Eliminate or reduce them as much as possible.

Squeeze lemon juice into water. Lemon has a lot of calcium in it and it turns to calcium hydroxide in drinking water. That’s alkalising. It raises the PH of that water from about 7 to about 8. Hot cayenne pepper is one of the most alkalising agents you can put in your body. It detoxifies and deacidifies all in one step.

STEP  THREE: Oxygenation

The Rockefeller-directed international banksters, blood banksters and medical monopolists have been busy suppressing your immune system. You want to raise your blood oxygen levels

Beginning in 1992, a Danish scientists by the name of Niels Skakkeback raised the alarm on a growing global health crises involving male fertility. After examining 61 international studies involving nearly 15,000 men between 1938 and 1992, he found that the sperm count of the average Western male had declined by roughly 50% over the past 50 years. Numerous studies have been conducted since that time, and have found that the trend has continued unabated.

So what’s causing this precipitous decline in male fertility? One of the leading theories suggests that it may involve environmental pollution of the water supply, specifically estrogen mimicking chemicals like BPA. Now over 20 years since Skakkeback released his findings, a new study has found compelling evidence for this theory.

A team of US researchers recently conducted a study involving mice and estrogen mimicking chemicals, specifically BPA, which is found in numerous plastics and canned food products, and estradiol, an active ingredient found in contraceptives and hormone therapy pills. While most people have become familiar with BPA in recent years, you may be wondering how a contraceptive would find its way into the average male.

When someone consumes one of these pills, many of the chemicals are excreted through the urinary tract, which eventually finds winds up in the sewers, and back into our waterways. Unfortunately most water treatment plants are not equipped to filter these pollutants from our drinking water. Not only does it cause problems for the wildlife that live in our rivers and lakes, but it poses serious health concerns for anyone who drinks this unfiltered tap water.

But I digress. The researchers fed the mice these chemicals from a very young age. They found that these chemicals disrupt the process of cell division required to produce the sperm, causing them to die at higher rates.

“This mouse model would suggest that here’s actually a reason why these sperm counts would be falling,” said Dr Hunt. “We’re actually doing something to this process that’s going to cause the death of more cells as they’re trying to make sperm. They’re going to get culled out by this quality-control mechanism and the upshot of that will be that if you do enough of this, you’ll drop sperm counts.”

But what was even more worrisome, was the long-lasting effects of these chemicals.

“We have a window of just a few days and we permanently change the way that the testis makes sperm in the adult,” said lead researcher Dr Pat Hunt, from Washington State University.

The only question is, where are we headed if we continue to expose ourselves to these toxins? If these estrogen mimickers aren’t banned from our food supply, and aren’t thoroughly cleaned from our tap water, we may only have one or two generations before we face a catastrophic population decline.

Fortunately, you don’t have to wait for the government to do something about it. As a rule of thumb, try to stick to fresh food as best you can. Avoid canned goods, plastic containers, and disposable utensils; and find yourself a high quality water filter if you haven’t already. Personally, I’ve found that most filters that separate fluoride, also filter out BPA and pharmaceuticals.

Just do the best you can to stay healthy in general. We live in a world that has completely failed to keep toxic substances out of our food, air and water, so it’s up to us take care of our health in any way we can.

flu_vaccine 4By:

Today we are mourning as we learn of more deaths of previously healthy children and young adults.

VaxTruth and the #CDCwhistleblower community of parents would like to offer our most sincere condolences and prayers to the families of Kiera Driscoll, Katherine McQuestion, Ayzlee McCarthy, Amber Gray, Kristie Green, Kaylynne Matten, Christopher Kanervisto, Chandler Webb, Ronan Burgess, and Patty Methot.

Kiera Driscoll, age five, died from the same strain of flu for which she had been vaccinated.

Kiera’s father, Patrick, said his daughter developed a cough and fever Sunday. On Monday, she was taken to a clinic, and prescribed steroids and a nebulizer. She collapsed later that day, and his wife performed CPR on Kiera until paramedics arrived. Kiera later died.

Patrick Driscoll said that Kiera had been vaccinated against the flu. He said doctors confirmed that Kiera had contracted the same strain for which she had been vaccinated.

 

Katherine McQuestion, age 26, received a mandatory flu shot as a condition of her hospital employment.

McQuestion’s mother said her daughter was healthy, beautiful and smart. She married in September, and her funeral was held on Tuesday. McQuestion’s mother said her daughter was required to and had received a flu shot, but it didn’t keep her from becoming sick.”

 

Ayzlee McCarthy

 

Ayzlee McCarthy, 3, was buried New Year’s Day in Elk Horn… she died Monday morning at Blank Children’s Hospital in Des Moines not even 72 hours after she started showing flu like symptoms.

 

Amber Gray

“She was completely healthy, nothing wrong with her. Yeah just a healthy typical 14-year-old girl which makes what happens to her that much more shocking.”

Kristie Green

Kristie Green died the day after Christmas… Green’s daughter says she can’t believe her mother is gone.

Kiera, Ayzlee, Amber, and Kristie had two things in common. They all got this year’s flu shot. They all were diagnosed with Type A Influenza, which is one of the Influenza strains contained each year in the flu shot, regardless of which version is given. Influenza Type B is also contained in yearly flu shots. Ayzlee was diagnosed with both Type A and Type B Influenza. Because of her age, it is likely that Ayzlee received the Flu Mist vaccine – a live virus vaccine. We do not know for sure which vaccines they received. All we know is that each of these formerly healthy, vibrant individuals got the flu shot. They (or their parents) thought they were protected and now they are gone.

The CDC has stated that this year’s flu shot is less effective than most yearly flu shots because the virus has mutated. That happens. Viruses mutate and change (so do bacteria). They do so in order to avoid eradication. The viruses are trying to survive and the more we try to wipe them out, the more likely they are to mutate. This may be happening with the flu viruses in part as a result of the increase in vaccination of children and young adults. In the not-so-distant past, deaths from flu were nearly unheard of in children and young adults. They were far more likely to occur in the aged – those past the age of 65. That was during the time (prior to 2004-2009) when basically the only people who were pressured to get yearly flu shots were people over the age of 65.

We all need to be informed. We all need to make educated decisions. Many of us turn to the CDC for advice when we don’t know what to do.

Why is the CDC pushing this year’s flu shot when it is ineffective against this year’s strain of flu? It is difficult to say, but one possible reason may be related to finances. The CDC receives money for each vaccine that is sold.

When we are seeking unbiased advice about decisions that carry life and death consequences, maybe we shouldn’t be asking for it from those who have a financial stake in the outcome of our decisions.

In their push to get every man, woman and child to get this year’s flu shot, the CDC and the mainstream media reports have repeatedly stated that everyone should still get it, even though it is “less effective” than usual, because getting the flu shot will provide some sort of “cross-over protection” and may make flu symptoms less severe. I haven’t seen ANY proof of those statements and they really just don’t make sense.  A vaccine for one virus works against different viruses? If getting a vaccine for chickenpox worked against measles, why do we need both?

I really would like to see the data the CDC is using to base its claim that getting the vaccine lessens symptoms of flu. As this excellent article  indicates, research strongly suggests the opposite is true and that getting the flu vaccine actually makes flu symptoms worse. Judging from the increasing number of deaths among children and young adults who have received the flu vaccine, and using a little common sense… the CDC’s claims don’t really resonate with me. And then there’s some very compelling evidence from the Cochrane Collaboration, one of the world’s most prestigious independent research groups. (Independent meaning unlike The CDC, they don’t receive any money from the sale of vaccines.)

The Cochrane Collaboration has this to say about the CDC’s claims:

The CDC authors clearly do not weight interpretation by quality of the evidence, but quote anything that supports their theory.” – from the Cochrane Collaboration’s Review of Influenza Vaccine Efficacy & Safety Studies

The Cochrane Collaboration’s research on the flu vaccine is very important reading for anyone who wants an unbiased, well-researched opinion. After studying the published research dating back to the 1960s, on flu vaccine efficacy and safety, the Cochrane Collaboration researchers found that the makers of the flu vaccine actually hit their mark about 10% of the time. So this year’s flu vaccine fiasco is nothing new. Ninety percent of the flu vaccines made since the 1960’s have been ineffective. In a “good year,” when the vaccine actually targets the strain of flu that is circulating, the effectiveness varies, depending on the age and immune status of the recipient. Efficacy at preventing flu ranges from about 30%  to about 1% in healthy adults. The researchers found no effect on flu vaccination when it comes to preventing hospitalizations, preventing the spread of influenza-like-illness, or preventing serious complications from flu. You can read more about the Cochrane Collaborations flu research here.

When attempting to make informed decisions about health care, we need to not only consider if a proposed intervention works (the benefit); we also must consider the potential harm of the intervention (the risks). This is what is known as the Risk-Benefit Analysis. With regard to the flu vaccine, assessing the risk is difficult because we don’t have accurate data. The best we have is VAERS – Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System; a database maintained by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). Unfortunately, because VAERS is a voluntary reporting system and there are no consequences to doctors, nurses or pharmacists for failing to report adverse reactions to vaccines, the AMA estimates that less than 10% of reactions is ever reported, and the number may be as low as 1-2%. This makes it very difficult to assess whether any benefit of flu vaccine outweighs the risks. What we do know is that in the last few years, the number of serious reactions reported to VAERS from flu vaccines has been steadily increasing. We also know that adverse events from flu vaccines are now the most frequent cases being filed with the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. Go here for more information.

As we are grieving the loss of increasing numbers of children and young adults, the goal of this post is two-fold:  It is my  most sincere prayer that the families of Ayzlee, Amber, and Kristie know how much we mourn the loss of their precious family members. Our prayers, our sympathy, and our love go out to you. As painful as this is, it is also our goal to educate others and to hopefully prevent more lives being lost.

Please. Educate before you vaccinate.

Kristie’s Story

These are just four of the most recent deaths of which we have become aware. There are others.

Kaylynne Matten, age 7. Died December 6, 2011, four days after receiving the flu shot.

Kaylynne Matten. Died at age 7, four days after receiving the flu shot.

Nicole and Justin Matten of Barton have lived every parent’s worst nightmare. On December 2 their 7-year-old daughter, Kaylynne, visited her physician for an annual checkup. She got a flu shot. The next day, she developed a bad headache and fever. On December 6, the normally happy and healthy girl, who had no previous history of chronic health problems or adverse reactions to vaccines, turned blue, stopped breathing and died in her mother’s arms.”

 

Christopher Kanervisto, age 19. Died November 20, 2009, one month after receiving the flu shot.

Christopher Kanervisto. Died at 19, one month after receiving the flu shot.

We finally received the autopsy results in mid-February 2010. Cause of death:  Viral Myocarditis. The medical examiner said it was the “flu” he had in October. I reminded her he had not had the flu; it was the vaccine he had in October… In Christopher’s case I believe it was the vaccine that triggered the Myocarditis… I wouldn’t wish this on anyone, he was my little boy.”

 

Chandler Webb, age 19. Died November 26, 2013. One month after receiving the flu shot.

Chandler Webb. Died one month after receiving the flu shot.

A doomed man pleaded with his doctors to save him as he slipped into a coma last month — a coma he never woke up from…Now Lori Webb says the death of her son, Chandler Webb, 19, was caused by a flu shot he received the week before he was rushed to the hospital.”

 

Ronan Burgess, age 5. Died December 25, 2013, one month after receiving the flu vaccine (Flumist).

Ronan Burgess died at age 5, one month after vaccination with FluMist.

Calandra (Ronan’s mother)  told our reporters that Ronan received the nasal flu vaccine in November. “All three of my children had the nasal spray. My other two kids didn’t get sick at all,” said Burgess.

Calandra hopes Ronan’s death will help others learn about the flu vaccine.

“It gives his life meaning. And it gives his death meaning. That’s the only way I can look at it,” Calandra said.

 

VaxTruth notes that when interviewed after Ronan’s death, his mother did not believe the vaccine was a contributing factor. Sadly, she blamed herself. She stated she and her husband had not been vaccinated and they contracted the flu. Mrs. Burgess expressed her feelings of guilt and urged others to ensure they were vaccinated. We wanted to include Ronan among those we honor in this post because we feel it is important to report the truth. There is no way to know if the vaccine contributed to his death, or if he would have become ill even if his parents had not. FluMist is a live virus vaccine and can cause infection in those who receive it. FluMist recipients can also spread the flu to others for up to a month after vaccination, as the manufacturer’s insert states (see Table 5, page 14). We pray you Rest In Peace, Ronan, and we pray blessings for solace to your family.

Patty Bill Methot, age 49. Died January 30, 2014 from pneumonia, a complication of H1N1 infection.

Patty Bill Methot, age 49. Died from pneumonia following H1N1 infection.

Patty Methot developed pneumonia and a blood infection after being diagnosed with H1N1, Giusti said. She said Methot died with family members by her side, including her husband and Kelsey (her 10 year-old daughter).
Neither antiviral medication nor vaccination was able to save Patty Methot’s life, Giusti said.
“That’s the kicker of the whole thing. She had the flu shot — we all did,” Giusti said.

 

Sadly, we know there are many we haven’t heard about yet, and many more to come. Please help us spread the word, so other families are able to make informed decisions.

Additional research regarding FluMist:

Live Attenuated Influenza Vaccine Enhances Colonization ofStreptococcus pneumoniae and Staphylococcus aureus in Mice

Following infection with an influenza virus, infected or recently recovered individuals become transiently susceptible to excess bacterial infections, particularly Streptococcus pneumoniae and Staphylococcus aureus. Indeed, in the absence of preexisting comorbidities, bacterial infections are a leading cause of severe disease during influenza epidemics. While this synergy has been known and is well studied, what has not been explored is the natural extension of these interactions to live attenuated influenza vaccines (LAIVs). Here we show, in mice, that vaccination with LAIV primes the upper respiratory tract for increased bacterial growth and persistence of bacterial carriage, in a manner nearly identical to that seen following wild-type influenza virus infections. Importantly, LAIV, unlike wild-type virus, did not increase severe bacterial disease of the lower respiratory tract. These findings may have consequences for individual bacterial disease processes within the upper respiratory tract, as well as bacterial transmission dynamics within LAIV-vaccinated populations.

“Dr. Hans Kugler, PhD, is one of our most highly recognized researchers in the field of anti-aging medicine; his scientific presentations – supported by impeccable documentation – are eye-openers for professionals and lay-persons alike. As professor of chemistry at Roosevelt University in Chicago, where he also did extensive longevity research, Dr. Kugler not only puts things into perspective, but also provides a complete picture of the anti-aging and regenerative medical sciences that can be applied with successful results.” -Quote by Dr. Ronald Klatz, M.D., D.O. President, American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M)

As the completely out of control global climate modification assault continues to wreak havoc on Earth’s life support systems and the environment, more and more credible members of society are speaking out. Dr. Hans Kugler, who is a president and founder of International Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, and a director of HK Stem Cell Laboratory at Health Integration Center (as well as a former West-German Air Force officer, pilot and platoon leader), has shown exceptional courage by openly and directly sounding the alarm on the most critical issue that we face, the global climate engineering assault. My most sincere thanks to Dr. Hans Kugler for giving us a very clear assessment of the dangers posed by geoengineering.

Alarming increase in serious illnesses in the US, along with a marked decrease in life expectancy, trend starting 16+ years ago

By Hans J. Kugler, PhD, contributing writer for geoengineeringwatch.org

We, IAAM (International Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine), contacted a number of longevity experts to pinpoint the causes. Look at the graph in Bezruchka’s paper: The US is dead-last!

chart

Besides the established connection to the use of GMOs, there is also a definite increase in overall inflammation, clearly connected to Chemtrail/climate engineering spraying. For the latest like recent article in The Washington Post and GMO Industry Harassment against Researchers Exposed.

We are also exploring the connection between Chemtrail/climate engineering spraying and the – strangely – appearing and disappearing flu symptoms; we will cover this in the future.

Within the last 20 years there has been an alarming increase in serious illnesses in the US, along with a marked decrease in life expectancy (Bezruchka, 2012). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that the cost of diabetes and diabetes-related treatment was approximately $116 billion dollars in 2007. Estimated costs related to obesity were $147 billion in 2008 and cardiovascular diseases and stroke were $475.3 billion in 2009. Health care expenditures in the US totaled 2.2 trillion dollars in 2007 (CDC, 2013a). The onset of serious illness is appearing in increasingly younger cohorts. The US leads the world in the increase in deaths due to neurological diseases between 1979-81 and 2004-06 for the 55-65 age group (Pritchard et al., 2013). These mental disorder deaths are more typical of the over 65 age group. There have been similar findings for obesity, asthma, behavior and learning problems, and chronic disease in children and young adults (Van Cleave et al., 2010). Type II diabetes in youth is being called an epidemic (Rosenbloom et al., 1999). The rate of chronic disease in the entire US population has been dramatically increasing with an estimated 25% of the US population suffering from multiple chronic diseases (Autoimmunity Research Foundation, 2012). These findings suggest environmental triggers rather than genetic or age-related causes.
During this same time period, there has been an exponential increase in the amount of glyphosate applied to food crops and in the percentage of GE food crops planted (Benbrook, 2012). We undertook a study to see if correlations existed between the rise of GE crops, the associated glyphosate use and the rise in chronic disease in the US.

FocusForHealth

All I could think to myself was that it was time to understand why the richest country in the world suffers from such deteriorating health. – Barry Segal

Watchung, NJ (PRWEB) January 21, 2015

Five years after establishing Focus Autism, Inc., founder Barry Segal announced today that he has renamed his foundation “Focus for Health (FFH).” The new name reflects a renewed mission in protecting pediatric health and preventable health issues that impact people of all ages. Segal describes the exciting decision to broaden the scope of his organization as “a major opportunity to help families, legislators, and healthcare providers find and apply solutions to create a healthier environment in which to live.”

The main reason for extending efforts is FFH’s recognition of the rising trends in 21st century sicknesses, such as autism, allergies, Alzheimer’s disease, asthma, diabetes, gut issues, shingles, and others. Segal explains, “I am amazed that while infectious disease rates have plummeted over the past 60 years, the rates of autism and chronic illnesses have skyrocketed. We now have a generation of people in worse health than the generation before them, and what’s more alarming is that chronic disease has become the leading cause of death and disability in the United States. We have to put a halt to this increase, and everyone at FFH is dedicated to that cause.”

Utilizing scientific research to support its goal, FFH will target several key areas including autism, maternal and children’s health, and immune health. Vaccine safety will also be addressed. Moreover, FFH will actively educate families, legislators, and medical providers about environmental factors contributing to the rise of chronic illnesses and how to limit exposures. Segal clarifies, “Science continues to prove that many of the injuries and illnesses currently afflicting vulnerable children are related to environmental influences and are therefore preventable.”

Through his work with researchers, medical practitioners, lawmakers, health advocates, and concerned citizens, Segal recognized that scientists and medical professionals are attributing the cause of these health issues to certain foods, agricultural practices, and pharmaceuticals, especially those containing heavy metals such as mercury. He has also recognized that evidence demonstrates curtailing exposures to these products and procedures can lead to prevention and cures for many chronic conditions.

Upon seeing the documentation of this dilemma, and its solution, Segal knew he had to use his resources to protect children and invoke change: “All I could think to myself was that it was time to understand why the richest country in the world suffers from such deteriorating health. I am more passionate than ever about increasing public awareness and research to eliminate the negative impact we know the toxic environment is having on our children and the overall health of our country.”

FFH will continue to promote congressional and state legislation to ensure full disclosure by government, industry, and academic institutions regarding contributing factors to the autism epidemic and other chronic illnesses. The foundation will also fund and foster key collaborations with scientists investigating and researching these health issues.

In upcoming months, Focus for Health will launch various media initiatives and partner with leading organizations across several industries to empower families, legislators, and medical providers with the tools necessary to enhance national and global health.

More information on the Focus for Health Foundation can be found at FocusforHealth.Org. Follow FFH on Twitter @FocusforHealth and on Facebook.

SIDS

Written By:

Sayer Ji, Founder  Friday, January 23rd 2015 at 1:45 pm

The CDC’s own research has found that the long denied vaccine-SIDS link is real.

If you believe the official pronouncements of top governmental health agencies like the CDC and FDA, all the vaccines in the present day schedule are a priori safe and effective.

Not only are you told that they can’t harm you, but that not taking them can kill you.

Parents are under even more pressure. They are told that refraining from vaccinating their infants or children will greatly increase their risk of dying or being disabled. Worse, they are increasingly labeled as ‘crazy’ and ‘irresponsible’ anti-vaccine zealots who are putting the lives of others in danger.

But what happens when the actual evidence from the scientific and clinical literature produced by these very agencies contradicts their own vaccine policies?

This is exactly what has happened with the publication of a new study in the Journal of Pediatrics titled ,”Adverse Events following Haemophilus influenzae Type b Vaccines in the Vaccine Adverse Event ReportingSystem, 1990-2013,” wherein CDC and FDA researchers identify 749 deaths linked to the administration of the Hib vaccine, 51% of which were sudden infant death linked to the administration of Hib vaccine.

The CDC has boldly denied that there is any evidence supporting a causal link between vaccines and infant death, despite the fact that their own webpage on the topic acknowledges that “From 2 to 4 months old, babies begin their primary course of vaccinations. This is also the peak age for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).” Written off as coincidence, the CDC suggests that stomach sleeping is the primary modifiable risk factor.

Because SIDS is the 3rd leading cause of death in infants, and because the U.S. has one of the highest infant mortality rates in the developed world, one would think that more progress would have been made toward understanding its causes. Perhaps, as explored in this past article, the signal of harm is being ignored. Neglect and suppression of available data has recently been exposed with the confession of a top CDC vaccine scientist who was compelled to covered up data revealing an autism-MMR link in African-American boys.

In the new study, the CDC and FDA researchers themselves acknowledge “the scarcity” of postlicensure safety data on HiB vaccines in today’s vaccination schedule. They evaluated reports involving the currently licensed Hib vaccines received from January 1, 1990, through December 1, 2013 available on the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).

Presently, the CDC recommends 4 doses of the HiB vaccine at the following ages: 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 12 months through 15 months.

The HiB vaccine is described on the CDC website as “very safe” and “effective” at preventing HiB disease, which it states can be deadly. They list “most common side effects as usually mild and last 2 or 3 days,” including “redness, swelling, and warmth where the child got the shot” and “fever”. Nowhere is there listed death or disability as a possible side effect.

In stark contrast to these statements the study uncovered the following highly concerning results:

VAERS received 29,747 reports after Hib vaccines; 5179 (17%) were serious, including 896 reports of deaths. Median age was 6 months (range 0-10.22 months). Sudden infant death syndrome was the stated cause of death in 384 (51%) of 749 death reports with autopsy/death certificate records. The most common nondeath serious AE categories were neurologic (80; 37%), other noninfectious (46; 22%) (comprising mainly constitutional signs and symptoms); and gastrointestinal (39; 18%) conditions. No new safety concerns were identified after clinical review of reports of AEs that exceeded the data mining statistical threshold.

Consider also that VAERS is a passive surveillance system, which suffers from profound underreporting. According to the VAERS site’s own disclaimer:

“Underreporting” is one of the main limitations of passive surveillance systems, including VAERS. The term, underreporting refers to the fact that VAERS receives reports for only a small fraction of actual adverse events. The degree of underreporting varies widely. As an example, a great many of the millions of vaccinations administered each year by injection cause soreness, but relatively few of these episodes lead to a VAERS report.

According to Barbara Loe Fisher, founder of the National Vaccination Information Center, underreporting may result in overlooking 99% or higher of all vaccine associated injuries:

“Former FDA Commissioner David Kessler estimated in a 1993 article in the Journal of the American Medical Association that fewer than 1 percent of all doctors report injuries and deaths following the administration of prescription drugs. This estimate may be even lower for vaccines. In one survey that our organization conducted in New York in 1994, only 1 doctor in 40 reported to VAERS.”

Considering the influence of underreporting, these deaths represent only the tip of the iceberg of vaccine-induced infant morbidity and mortality caused by HiB vaccines. The study also mentioned an earlier analysis which found that infant death is the most common cause of death reported by all vaccine linked reports on VAERS, “accounting for almost one-half of all deaths reported.”

Obviously, this is an appalling study. The death of even 1 child for a potentially ineffective medical intervention designed to prevent a rarely fatal illness is a tragedy. Nor can any single vaccine be proven to have prevented any single case of disease because the clinical outcome (end point) is a non-event. This is not the case, however, for vaccine side effects which can be linked directly to the vaccination event with plausible scientific mechanisms.

What is perhaps most astounding is the researcher’s conclusion:

“Review of VAERS reports did not identify any new or unexpected safety concerns for Hib vaccines.”

This callous disregard for the evidence — evidence that clearly shows the CDC misrepresents the safety of the HiB vaccine — speaks to the blind investment in vaccine policy decisions over human wellbeing. Millions of parents have listened to the CDC and FDA and believed that these vaccines not only work but are safe. Informed consent requires those undergoing a quasi-mandatory medical intervention like vaccination to know the true risks associated with it. Failing to do so is clearly a violation of this medical ethical protection against being abused, and in some cases disabled and even killed.

measles-1024x1024

Tess Pennington/January 24,2015

As many of you are aware, the measles outbreak continues to spread into multiple states. With 70 confirmed cases now reported, and contradicting information as to whether a vaccination will stop the virulent disease, it is time to begin preparing for yet another possible epidemic in the United States.

In an attempt to get a handle on this epidemic that has crossed over into multiple states, health officials are emphasizing the importance of getting a vaccination. However, many are wondering if it is even possible to control the outbreak at this point. Once a measles outbreak has started in a community, it is very difficult to stop it. Moreover, since the outbreak began at a popular tourist destination, those who are infected span from local, statewide and even international travelers. Getting a grip on this outbreak could take months, and all the while, infected more and more as it rages on. As, you continue reading you will see how ineffective it could be to get a vaccine.

Here’s what we do know:

  • At this point, there are 70 confirmed cases. The people who have been infected range in age from 7 months to 70 years old.
  • Those most at risk are individuals who are unvaccinated, pregnant women, infants under 6 months old, and those with weakened immune systems.
  • Health officials have been unable to locate “patient zero,” but they believe it was either a resident from a country where measles is widespread or a Californian who went abroad and brought home the virus.
  • Both vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals were infected with measles. The vast majority had not been vaccinated, and a quarter had to be hospitalized.

The Facts

Though the measles virus was eradicated in the U.S. since 2000, it can still enter the country through an infected traveler.

About the virus:

  • The measles virus is spread from person to person through the air by infectious droplets; it is highly contagious. Measles is highly contagious and can be transmitted from four days before the rash becomes visible to four days after the rash appears.
  • It takes an average of 10–12 days from exposure to the first symptom, which is usually fever. The measles rash doesn’t usually appear until approximately 14 days after exposure, 2–3 days after the fever begins.
  • You cannot get the virus more than once.

Treating the virus:

  • Measles is diagnosed by a combination of the patient’s symptoms and by laboratory tests.
  • There is no specific treatment for measles. People with measles need bed rest, fluids, and control of fever. Patients with complications may need treatment
    specific to their problem.
  • Measles can be a serious disease, with 30% of reported cases experiencing one or more complications. Death from measles occurs in 2 to 3 per 1,000 reported cases in the United States. Complications from measles are more common among very young children (younger than five years) and adults (older than 20 years).
  • Measles can be especially severe in persons with compromised immune systems. Measles is more severe in malnourished children, particularly those with vitamin A deficiency. In developing countries, the fatality rate may be as high as 25%
  • If someone is exposed to measles, medical experts suggest you notify a doctor regarding the exposure. Immune globulin (a blood product containing antibodies to the measles virus) may prevent or lessen the severity of measles
    if given within six days of exposure.

Why the MMR Vaccine May Not Help Stop the Outbreak

Although health experts suggest a vaccination shot will help prevent the spreading of this virulent disease, and even tell unvaccinated patients that measles vaccine may prevent disease if given within 72 hours of exposure, there is contradicting information on this. Past measles vaccinations leave an exposure gap and as the CDC states there are studies that support this claim. Studies indicate that it takes between 4-5 weeks to develop immunity. “In one study, 86.6% of vaccines had evidence of mumps seroconversion at 4 weeks after immunization and 93.3% had evidence of seroconversion after 5 weeks.” Further, the combination MMRV vaccine used to treat those with measles is not licensed for those over 12 years old, nor is the vaccine recommended for those with evidence of severe immunosuppression, or who are pregnant.

Further, in a recent article on the outbreak at Disneyland, I discussed how hospitals may be unprepared to deal with the increased measles cases within the community:

The reappearance of measles has fueled widespread concern among health officials. Many are concerned that the hospitals are ill-equipped to deal with the influx of measles cases which could create an even more life-threatening event. Delay in diagnosis of the disease and infected patients who were not isolated immediately (similar to the Ebola scare that occurred in the United States) can potentially fuel the infection rate of this disease.

In a report that ranked U.S. hospitals and states on their ability to deal with outbreaks only proved how unprepared these medical facilities are. Many states ranked low in comparison to other countries. On a scale of 1 to 10, half the states and Washington, D.C., scored a 5 or lower, according to the report released by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Trust for America’s Health. The hospitals were measured on matters as diverse as food safety, vaccination rates, hospital-associated infections and being prepared for emerging threats. Source

If the hospitals are ill-equipped to deal with communicable diseases at a basic level, how will they deal with an increase in measles or other communicable disease cases? Due to the extreme contagiousness of measles, this could pose a huge problem in regards to treatment and prevention.

According to an article at Live Science, Dr. Stephen Ostroff, of the Pennsylvania Department of Health states in regards to measles, “[It] is really quite extraordinary in how contagious it is,” Ostroff said. He notes that if you were not vaccinated against measles, and you were in the same room as an infected person, the likelihood that you would get the disease is greater than 90 percent.”

There is a Chance That You Can Still Get Measles Even If You Are Immunized

This article is not another attempt to push immunizations. In the case of measles, there have been outbreaks that occurred even in immunized communities. In 1985, a measles outbreak occurred in Corpus Christi, Texas – a virtually fully immunized (>99%) school population. This has happened countless other times as well. In 2008, there was also an outbreak in San Diego, California. So, there is a chance you can still get measles even if you have the vaccine.

The question begs to be asked if there is a perfect storm brewing. If hospitals are already at a disadvantage in dealing with contagious outbreaks and the susceptibility of catching measles is still present even in a vaccinated population, what will happen if cases still increase?

What to Expect

As this virus continues to rage on, businesses, schools and hospitals could adversely be affected. Since the outbreak occurred, two dozen unvaccinated students at an Orange County high school were sent home for three weeks after an infected student showed up. Moreover, as more cases are confirmed, local businesses could begin closing its doors in order to prevent employees from being infected.

 In The Prepper’s Blueprint: A Step-By-Step Guide To Prepare You For Any Disasters, I outlined how important it is to prepare for epidemics and pandemics.

It is imperative to understand how contagions behave, how quickly they can spread and how important it is to be prepared ahead of time. When an outbreak occurs, those living in close proximity to others (especially in cities with high density populations) will be more at risk. Pregnant women, infants, elderly people, or those with chronic medical conditions are at the highest risk and could be the first of the population to contract the contagious illness. Moreover, schools and daycares, workplaces, and community events are germ-ridden cesspools for attracting unwanted illness and diseases. Studies are finding that sneezes and coughs cause illnesses to travel much farther than originally estimated.

In a novel study by Massachusetts Institute of Technology, researchers show that coughs and sneezes have associated gas clouds that keep their potentially infectious droplets aloft over much greater distances.

This cloud actually enhanced the range and travel length of the smaller droplets, helping them travel farther than was previously thought—particularly the smaller ones, which travel up to 200 times farther than previously estimated. According the study, the fluid droplets expelled in coughs and sneezes are a combination of sizes—ranging from 1 micrometer to 800-900 micrometers that can span the entirety of a room. Therefore, they can penetrate the room and ventilation systems more insidiously. Understanding this phenomenon can help you better prepare your home to prevent airborne viruses from spreading.

Because the measles takes an average of 10–12 days from exposure to the first symptom, those who are exposed infect everyone around them. It is essential to take precautions, as this outbreak looks like it is here to stay. As well, if exposed, a person will need to prepare to quarantine themselves for up to two weeks and stay away from those with compromised immune systems. Here are some suggestions for things to do while are under quarantine.

So how does the average person properly prepare for this type of emergency? Similar to other emergencies, we simply prepare as much as we can because any steps taken toward preparedness are better than none at all.

Following is a list of suggested preparedness supplies needed to deal with the measles for your home:

As well, practicing social avoidance such as staying away from airports, concert halls or community-wide events until health officials are able to stop the spreading of this virus will be advantageous on your part. Prepare accordingly and be ready.
