Author of In the wake of Vaccines Barbara Loe Fisher writes:
"Instead of epidemics of measles and polio, we have epidemics of chronic autoimmune and neurological disease: In the last 20 years rates of asthma and attention-deficit disorder have doubled, diabetes and learning disabilities have tripled, chronic arthritis now affects nearly one in five Americans and autism has increased by 300 percent or more in many states."
Other writers such as Rebecca Carley M.D. are far more dramatic when it comes to the full horror of vaccination. She Describes Inoculations as The True Weapons Of Mass Destruction Causing VIDS (Vaccine Induced Diseases)1
Carley describes the fragile ground that the theory of vaccination is founded upon. Vaccination had its beginnings when it was observed that mammals who recover from infection acquire natural immunity when exposed to the infection a second time. When an individual meets up with that same antigen, the immune system can be quickly triggered to eradicate it. This knowledge of immunity led to the belief that if a foreign antigen was injected into an individual, that individual would then become immune to a future infection.
However there are complications that occur when we forgo natural immune systems and what was not understood was that the respiratory tract contains secretory IgA (an antibody which initiates the natural immune response) within the respiratory tract mucosa. When we bypass this part of the immune system by directly injecting organisms into the bloodstream we damage the immune system leading to the deplorable situation where viruses or bacteria cannot be eliminated but go on to multiply and further grow as we are exposed to ever more antigens and toxins in the environment.
Rebecca Carley explains this damaging of the immune system:
The mechanism by which the immune system is corrupted can best be realized when you understand that the two poles of the immune system (the cellular and humoral mechanisms) have a reciprocal relationship. Thus, when one is stimulated, the other is inhibited. Since vaccines activate the B cells to secrete antibody, the T cells are subsequently suppressed. This suppression of the cell mediated response is a key factor in the development of cancer and life threatening infections. In fact, the "prevention" of a disease via vaccination is, in reality, an inability to expel organisms due to the suppression of the cell-mediated response. Thus, rather than preventing disease; they actually prevent the disease from ever being resolved.
As we continue to add more and more vaccinations to the childhood schedule the assault on the immune system worsens. We may have prevented a disease by vaccination but we have stopped the natural ability to expel organisms due to the suppression of the cell-mediated response. So we prevent a disease but the disease actually never gets resolved. The organisms continue to circulate in the body causing further disease. Thus the scene is ripe for the development of autoimmune diseases such as Crohns disease, Asthma, Diabetes and Eczema and many, many more unnecessary diseases.
What determines which autoimmune disease you develop depends on which tissues in your body are attacked by auto-antibodies. If the insulin producing cells of the pancreas are attacked by auto-antibodies, you develop insulin dependent (juvenile) diabetes. In the case of asthma we have the situation where the respiratory mucosa has been attacked by antibodies produced in response to antigens such as dust or pollen. The next time these substances are inhaled an allergic response is initiated causing constriction of the bronchioles.
What further compromises the immune system are the adjuvants, the substances added to vaccines to enhance the antibody response which can actually lead to serious side effects themselves. These include oil emulsions, mineral compounds (which may contain the heavy metal aluminum), bacterial products, and liposomes (which allow delayed release of substances). The side effects of adjuvants themselves lead to pathologic levels of antibody production, as well as allergic reaction to the adjuvants themselves.
The brain and spinal cord can also be attacked with antibodies which lead to many neurological diseases which are rampant today in societies where vaccination is the common practice. Among the neurological disorders that are rapidly rising is autism. The incidence of autism is 1 in 160 children and is four times as common in boys as girls. A new Australian study has found a surprising number of autistic cases in Australia with 17 children being diagnosed every week.
At the US Court of Federal Claims in Washington, DC, scientists are pitted against activists in the debate over whether vaccines have caused autism in many children. More than 4,800 cases are pending, filed by parents who believe their children have autism that was caused by vaccines. The present test case marks the first time ever that evidence of autistic harm from childhood vaccines is examined and cross-examined in a court of law and will determine whether a combination vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella, or MMR, plus a mercury-containing preservative called thiomersal, caused the autism of Michelle Cedillo, now 12. "The profound downward change in Michelle's health began seven days following the MMR," the Legal Times newspaper quoted Michelle's mother Theresa Cedillo as saying.
For years there has been a debate about the cause or causes of autism, with the most likely culprit being childhood vaccines. When one considers what is put into the vaccines injected into hours-old infants, it is easy to understand why vaccines are implicated. Vaccines contain formaldehyde (used in embalming), thiomersal (nearly 50 percent mercury), aluminum phosphate (toxic and carcinogenic), antibiotics, phenols (corrosive to skin and toxic), aluminum salts (corrosive to tissue and neurotoxic), methanol (toxic), isopropyl (toxic), 2-pheoxyethanol (toxic), live viruses and a host of unknown components considered off-limits as trade secrets. These are just part of the vaccine mixture.
Of these toxic ingredients thiomersal is the one that is suspected as causing autism. Despite official insistence that the evidence that thiomersal equals autism is inconclusive, the data suggest otherwise. For in 1999 the National Academy of Sciences Institute of Medicine must have thought there was something seriously wrong when it supported removal of thimerosal from vaccines, stating that it was "a prudent measure in support of the public goal to reduce mercury exposure of infants and children as much as possible.
The symptoms of mercury poisoning are identical to the symptoms of autism, and it should be noted that most children who go on to suffer autism do so after the MMR vaccine. However the MMR vaccine is one of the few vaccines that do not contain mercury. Therefore it is obvious that the removal of mercury will not make vaccines safe.
This is maybe why the mercury issue is the only thing being addressed at all. If it can be shown that vaccines donít contain mercury then the anti- vaccination activists may shut up or so it is hoped. It would not do to question the whole premise and idea of vaccination. The premise for its use was based on the belief that that if a foreign antigen was injected into an individual, that individual would then become immune to a future infection only to lead to epidemics of autoimmune diseases and increasing neurological dysfunction in our offspring.
Dr. James R. Shannon, former director of the National Institute of Health reported in December, 2003 that "the only safe vaccine is one that is never used".
Rebecca Carley author of Inoculations - The True Weapons Of Mass Destruction Causing VIDS (Vaccine Induced Diseases) An Epidemic Of Genocide writes that
However, the reverberating truth, "the shot heard round the world" which will lead to the evolution of consciousness necessary to stop the holocaust against humanity known as vaccinations, will be that not only are vaccinations not safe or effective, but that they are actually weapons of mass destruction being perpetrated upon humanity in the name of health, for the purpose of genocide and to bring in the New World Order.
