As I get ready to head to the Autism One conference in Chicago, I was thinking about all of the food recalls that have occurred over the years due to sickness and death but none have occurred as a result of vaccine injury and death.
The FDA stands for the Food & Drug administration.
What is the purpose of this agency:
The FDA is responsible for protecting the public health by assuring the safety, efficacy and security of human and veterinary drugs, biological products, medical devices, our nation’s food supply, cosmetics, and products that emit radiation.
Read thru that paragraph again. They are responsible for the safety of food and drugs in the U.S. If there is a safety issue, a food is pulled from the shelves and recalled. We hear many stories annually about food being recalled due to safety concerns. These concerns are generally related to salmonella, listeria, metal fragments, not being heated to the right temperature before being packaged or some other possible contamination.
People have died as a result of these contamination’s and people have been hospitalized as a result of illness.
There are several different classes of recalls –
Class I is the most urgent type of recall. The FDA formulates a plan as the manufacturer and the specific product. The goal here is to get the product off the shelf and out of people’s homes.
Class II recall is more preventative in nature. There is a risk of illness or death but no immediate threat.
Class III is the least serious of all recalls. There is no immediate threat for injury or illness.
An example of this was in 2010 when a children’s medicine was potentially contaminated with small pieces of plastic during the manufacturing process.
(remember that last sentence for further reference)
Here is a link to food recalls by the FDA –
The food recall archives go all the way back to 2004 –
According to recall information compiled by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Food Safety Inspection Service (FSIS), from January 2011 to September 2012 there were:
- 1,753 foodborne Illnesses linked to recalls of food products;
- 464 hospitalizations due to recalled food products;
- 37 deaths linked to recalls of food products;
- 1,446 incidences of Salmonella linked to recalls of food products; and
- 165 incidences of Listeria linked to recalls of food products.
What is listeria?
Listeria is a hardy bacteria found in soil and water that can be carried by animals. It is often found in processed meats because it can contaminate a processing facility and stay there for a long period of time, and it can grow in the cold temperature of a refrigerator.
What is Salmonella?
A bacterium that occurs mainly in the intestine, especially a serotype causing food poisoning. (google.com)
What is E coli?
A bacterium commonly found in the intestines of humans and other animals, where it usually causes no harm. Some strains can cause severe food poisoning, especially in old people and children.
Three people died from eating ice cream. A summertime favorite on a hot summer day.
Lets look at some other food recalls –
1992 – Jack in the Box – Hundreds sick from their burgers, 4 children died
1996 – Odwalla juice – One 16 month old died and many more sick
1996 – Sara Lee deli products & hot dogs – 21 deaths and more than a hundred sick
2009 – Peanut corporation – 8 deaths, salmonella containing products
Even pet food is recalled after animal deaths –
2007 – Menu foods – 14 dog & cats died after eating pet food containing melamine
This is just a small sampling of the food recalls. If you check the resource links below, you will see many more. I wanted to point out the ones in which someone died as a result of the food being contaminated.
Now lets take a look at the vaccine safety which the FDA also oversees.
In 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that vaccines are unavoidably unsafe.
“which exempts from strict liability rules “unavoidably unsafe products.”
Unsafe is used in that court decision an amazing 32 times. Unavoidable is used 65 times.
The court ruling goes on to say –
“No vaccine manufacturer shall be liable in a civil action for damages arising from a vaccine-related injury or death associated with the administration of a vaccine after October 1, 1988, if the injury or death resulted from side effects that were unavoidable even though the vaccine was properly prepared and was accompanied by proper directions and warnings.”27
So, you can sue food manufacturers either thru a class action lawsuit or a personal lawsuit. But, you can’t sue vaccine manufacturers? Am I the only one who sees a problem with this?
Who else is involved in this vaccine dangers cover up?
Dr. Paul Thorsen was a leading researcher who supposedly was given $2 million dollars to disprove the vaccine-autism link. He is now wanted for embezzlement. But yet the CDC refers to his study as one of the proofs that the is no link between vaccines & autism.
Dr. Paul Offit has said repeatedly there are NO scientific studies showing a vaccine-autism link. But yet, there is almost a hundred showing there is a link.
Remember that Paul Offit gets paid millions a year to promote vaccines. (need to keep the sponsors happy)
The vaccine injury trust fund has over $3.5 billion dollars in it for families of vaccine injured children. Total compensation paid out to families over the life of the fund is $3.1 billion dollars. The fund is partially funded by the $0.75 per vaccine excise tax paid by the manufacturer.
Now, what is considered a reaction to vaccines? “It is an event that is listed in the package insert.”
The package insert is a very long, very small print information packet that comes with a vaccine that should be read by anybody getting a vaccine. It’s called informed consent. How can you consent to something if you don’t have all of the facts?
Here is a link to the package inserts, I urge you to read them.
The vaccine adverse event reporting system gets around 30,000 reports of adverse reactions annually. 13% of those are considered serious.
An interesting notation in a MMR information sheet on the World Health Organization website –
An analysis of claims for encephalitis following measles vaccine in the United States found clustering of events at 8–9 days after immunization, which supports but does not prove the possibility that the vaccine causes encephalitis (Weibel, 1998; Duclos, 1998).
Remember that statement I said earlier about plastic particles possibly being in children’s medication? And now you’ve read that about 30,000 cases of vaccine adverse events are reported annually to VAERS. This is estimated to be only 10% or less of the annual cases. Which means that number is actually much higher.
You can search the VAERS database for yourself and see the reactions.
When will the insanity stop? When will the children of the world stop being the guinea pigs for big pharma?
Recently we heard in the news that some mexican children died after getting vaccinated. In truth, 75% of the children in this mexican town were either dead or hospitalized after getting vaccinated.
Children that are vaccine injured or die after getting vaccine are NOT collateral damage for the good of society.
