“Just a little prick”

25 Mar

Once again, let me reiterate that this is my personal opinion and others are perfectly at liberty to disagree with it.
I watched the face of a nurse at a childrens hospital when told that a certain child had not had any vaccinations.  Shock!  Horror!  The vaccination/immunisation of children is almost a religion to these people.  It’s a ‘rite of passage’ for babies and toddlers to be stuck with needles filled with dead or weakened virii along with other ‘addatives’ such as thimerasol (allegedly now removed from children’s vaccines), formaldehyde (a known carcinogen), aluminium and various rogue cells from the culture mediums that vaccines are grown in, eg. eggs, bovine albumen, monkey and chicken livers. Now whether these ingredients would affect a child if only one vaccine was given is debateable, but as more and more vaccines are added to the list recommended for young children and babies, one has to wonder.

When I was a child my mother told me I’d had a diptheria vaccination but that’s the only one she could recall me having.  The polio vaccine on sugar lumps became available and my other siblings received it but I did not, I threw a tantrum and I refused to go to the surgery to get it.  I managed to evade the inevitable BCG jab when at school.  When I was nineteen I got a smallpox vaccine because it was recommended for people travelling to Spain.  Later I joined the army and was given a range of vaccinations, including the dreaded BCG which surprisingly didn’t result in a huge gooey sore on my arm as it did to my sister and many of my friends.  I remember being given a Schick test which determined whether I needed a vaccination against diptheria.  Well, obviously my original vaccination had not given me life long immunity because the test showed I should have it.  As a result of the test my left forearm itched intensely for six straight months afterwards and I never did get an explanation.

When my children came along I opted not to vaccinate them against whooping cough.  Too many people were reporting that it was damaging their children and I weighed up the odds and decided there was no way my children were getting it.  My eldest daughter received the polio vaccine when she was at school, aged six.  If I’d have known then when what I know now, that would never have happened.  My son, at sixteen, insisted he wanted the measles vaccine and despite my efforts to persuade him otherwise he was adamant, so I signed the permission slip.

Why am I, on the whole, anti vaccination?  I decided to educate myself on the history of vaccinations and what I found was not encouraging.  Some of the worse outbreaks of certain diseases happened amongst fully vaccinated populations.   Oh, but people say, diseases were drastically reduced by vaccinations.  Really?  In many cases, due to better sanitation and nutrition, those diseases were already in decline and the continuation of that decline after the introduction of vaccines was wholely ascribed to the vaccine.  Another way of boosting vaccine uptake rates was to misdiagnose (intentionally or not) a disease such as polio then revise the diagnosis criteria.

“Dr Bernard Greenberg, head of the Department of Biostatistics of the University of North Carolina School of Public Health, USA, has stated that prior to the Salk vaccine, large numbers of Cocksackie virus and asceptic meningitis cases were mislabelled as paralytic polio. Following the start of polio vaccinations, no such mislabelling occurred. Following the commencement of the Salk vaccine, many polio cases were reclassified under a different name, this again, leading to statistics indicating a reduction in polio incidence. ” http://www.soilandhealth.org/02/0201hyglibcat/020132sinclair/vaccinaion.htm

So let’s take a look at the polio vaccine that has allegedly saved so many lives.  There is a chilling video on youtube in which a Dr.Hiller is interviewed.  He worked for Merck and created a number of vaccines.  Listen to what he says about SV40, a virus that was discovered in the kidneys of monkeys used to develop the vaccine.  Listen to how he and the interviewers laugh about cancer causing agents and the introduction of the AIDS virus.  Do you think it’s funny?  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=13QiSV_lrDQ  Here is a short precis about what happened when SV40 was introduced into the human population. http://www.naturalnews.com/032854_SV40_polio_vaccines.html

And now we have the saintly Bill Gates intent on vaccinating all children with his polio vaccine.  He is lauded for his philanthropy (just how philanthropic are tax-exempt foundations?  Do some research!)   But he fails to address the fact that his vaccine programme has paralysed almost 48,000 children in India!  And what about the fifty plus children from a small African village that have been damaged by Gates backed meningitis vaccine MenAfriVac?  But people blithely accept his saintly status.

Oh, but vaccines are safe and any risk is slight.  Really?  How many long term studies have been carried out on vaccines to support that position?  There will be those who will guess hundreds, thousands but they’d be wrong.  The answer is zero.  Most studies are conducted over days or weeks.  So how can we sure that problems in later life are not attributable to vaccines?  Well, we can’t can we?  Is it a coincidence that Alzheimer’s disease is on the increase and at the same time older people are being encouraged to take the flu jab?  It has been reported that to take the flu jab five years in a row increases by ten the chances of a person developing Alzheimer’s.  And let’s not forget the spikes in rates of narcolepsy in children who were given the swine flu vaccine.  Eight hundred young lives in Europe, destroyed.

Do I think all vaccines are dangerous?  No, not all,  but I don’t trust the pharmaceutical industry to tell us the truth.  Vaccines are big, nay huge, money spinners and more and more vaccines are being introduced to supposedly protect children from diseases which were just normal, everyday childhood diseases a generation or so ago.  The problem with vaccines is that they do not provide life long protection and boosters are required. (yet more money for the vaccine industry)  When children usually got mumps at an early age very few suffered lasting side effects.  We now see older children and adults getting it and a disease that causes little or no problem to children can have devastating effects on adults who probably mistakenly think that their childhood vaccine has protected them.

The human immune system has developed over millions of years and as far as I know the three main ways a body can become infected is through the respiratory system, the digestive system or cuts, grazes or puncture wounds in the skin.  So the immune system has developed be ‘on guard’ for infections from these pathways.  So how do we administer vaccines?  We bypass those three pathways (except for some flu vaccines which are administered nasally)  and inject into muscle.  Way to go!  And how can we be sure that a weakened or dead virus will not elicit a weakened response so should a ‘wild’ virus attack the body the immune system will not respond sufficiently to overcome it?  Could this be why fully vaccinated people sometimes succumb to the diseases they’ve been vaccinated against?

It is interesting, I think, that an investigative journalist, Dan Olmstead once tried to find out what the autism rates were in the Pennsylvania Amish.  In general, most Amish don’t have their children vaccinated.  He found only three instances of diagnosed autism; one was an adopted Chinese child who had received vaccinations in China, another was a child who began a high pitched scream and retarded development after receiving a vaccine.  The other we don’t know about.  He inteviewed a doctor who had spent time treating Amish patients and who claimed he had never, in all his years treating the Amish been presented with a case of autism from the Amish community.  If nothing else, it makes you think.  http://www.putchildrenfirst.org/media/e.4.pdf

I wouldn’t want to persuade people not to vaccinate their children but I would hope they do some research before blindly accepting the word of the pharmaceutical companies that these things are safe.  Surely it’s wise for people to be informed before they allow anything to be injected into their children.  And when a medical professional such as Andrew Wakefield puts his career on the line, please don’t just accept what you read in the mainstream media.  Find out the connections between said media, the judiciary and the big pharmaceutical companies.  I’ll give you this link to start with http://coto2.wordpress.com/2011/07/17/murdoch-and-vaccines-exposure-of-murdochs-crimes-expose-a-much-larger-story/

By the way, did anybody ever find out if Tony Blair’s son, Leo received the MMR vaccine?  Why the reluctance of the Blair’s to say, one way or the other?


Excellent BBC dramatisation of how the MMR vaccine questions arose.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rT-2S7L-N9c
