Should you vaccinate your child?



My interest in the subject of vaccination started when I went to a lecture given by a local naturopath. Up until this night I did not know that there was anything wrong with the idea of vaccination. I had had the usual childhood shots and also some even worse one such as smallpox and BCG for TB and the really worrisome Hepatitis B vaccination. So what I learned from that one lecture has spurred me on to more revealing and distressing research. As I researched over the years I was forced to wonder what I had done to my own health or lack of and that of my three children whom I had vaccinated. I was brought up to believe the medical dogma and followed the rules implicitly.

There are some 200 more vaccines in the pipeline. Examples are a Cholesterol Vaccine, a Diabetes Vaccine and an Asthma vaccine. Thereís even an Arthritis vaccine waiting in the wings. Casting my eye down the long list of vaccines that are being cooked up in laboratories across the globe as I write, I can see there is a jab for just about every malady known to the 21st century human.

Terrific you might think BUT! Far from being good for us vaccines are extremely detrimental.

"Ever since mass vaccination of infants began, reports of serious brain, cardiovascular, metabolic and other injuries started filling pages of medical journals." In fact, pertussis vaccine has been used to induce encephalomyelitis, which is characterized by brain swelling and hemorrhaging" Viera Scheibner, PhD.1

When we consider the assault on the immune system that is vaccination are we surprised by these and other health effects. Look at the increase in allergies amongst your friends and their children today. How many suffer from hay fever, sinusitis and other allergic diseases. These allergies occur because the immune system of the vaccinated is unable to rid the system of unwanted foreign particles. Then there is the huge increase in the number of autoimmune diseases today. Examples are Lupus, fibromyalgia, psoriasis, chrohnís disease just to name but a few.

Today in America, one child in 166 has been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. 9 million American children under 18 have been diagnosed with asthma Nearly 3 million children are learning disabled. 4 million children between the ages of 3 and 17 years have been diagnosed with ADHD. 206,000 Americans under the age of 20 have type 1 diabetes. 1 in 400 to 500 American children and adolescents are now diabetic. Today, arthritis affects one in three Americans, and about 300,000 American children have juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis used to be so rare that statistics were not kept until its recent rise in children.2

Letís take a step back and try to understand vaccination.

What do you actually know about vaccines?

What is a Vaccine?

A web definition of the word tells us that: A Vaccine is A suspension of attenuated live or killed microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, or rickettsiae), or fractions thereof, administered to induce immunity and thereby prevent infectious disease.3

Letís try to understand vaccination. First letís look at the production of a vaccine.

The making of a vaccine starts with a bacteria or a virus which may be dead or maybe attenuated or weakened. The production of a vaccine needs Cell cultures. These are used for the production of a vaccine and are obtained from animals. In the case of the polio vaccine the cultures come from monkeys and in the case of rubella the cultures are obtained from aborted foetuses.4

Other substances that are added to vaccines include Antibiotics which are used to avoid contamination of the culture cells. Then there are the Adjuvents that are added to ďmake the immune response stronger.Ē These adjuvents are toxic substance such as aluminium hydroxide. The addition to vaccines of these adjuvents is extremely problematic when one recalls that the number of people suffering from Alzheimerís disease is on the rise and that the toxic substance aluminium is linked to this disease. How much of the growth of this disease can be linked to vaccines we do not know but we can suspect that the link exists.

The presence of aluminium is not the only troublesome additive to vaccines. The heavy metal Mercury has been used as a preservative in vaccines since the 1930ís. It can be seen by the contents of a vaccine that all is not well with vaccination.

How did vaccination begin?

Vaccination as we know it began in the 18th century with the English doctor Edward Jenner. Jenner performed his first experimental vaccination when he inoculated the cow-pox virus into a patient in an attempt to build immunity against smallpox. Edward Jenner also inoculated his 18 months old son with swine-pox, and with cow-pox. His son was never very well after that and in fact died of tuberculosis at the tender age of 21 years.5

From ď The Poisoned NeedleĒ by Eleanor Mc Bean 1957 we learn that, "On the 14th of May, 1796 . . . Jenner vaccinated James Phipps, a boy about eight years old, with the matter taken from the hand of a dairymaid infected with casual cow-pox. After waiting six weeks Jenner inoculated this boy on both arms with smallpox matter, taken from the arm of a boy with smallpox. Several months later Phipps was again inoculated with the variolous matter (smallpox pus) but no effect was produced.Ē The inoculation didnít "take" so on the strength of this one experiment and its questionable interpretation, Jenner based his claim that one vaccination would "forever secure a person from smallpox." No time had elapsed to prove whether it would last a lifetime or a month or at all; but without any proof or any scientific basis or evidence for its practice, the doctors and the government adopted it and made it compulsory, no doubt, seeing the gold mine in profits that it would yield. James Phipps was declared immune to smallpox but he too, died of tuberculosis at the age of twenty years. 6

Dr. Walter James, of Philadelphia said: "VACCINATION DOES NOT STAY THE SPREAD OF DISEASE OR EVEN MODIFY IT in those cases who get it after vaccination. IT DOES INTRODUCE INTO THE SYSTEM TUBERCULOSIS, CANCER, AND LEPROSY. 6

Did the introduction of smallpox vaccination stem the tide of deaths from smallpox? Letís examine this belief.

In 1853 England introduced compulsory vaccination. Before this time the highest death rate from smallpox was 2000 for any two year period. However 20 years later there were 23,062 deaths in England and Wales with smallpox spreading over Europe in all the countries where vaccination was practiced on a large scale. During the same epidemic in Germany 124,948 people died of smallpox.

Of the 155 persons admitted to the Smallpox Hospital in the Parish of St. James, Piccadilly, 145 had been vaccinated.

What Factors really led to the decrease in smallpox and other infectious diseases?

The most noticeable decrease in smallpox and other infectious diseases began with the sanitation reforms just prior to 1800 and the improvement in nutrition.6

How does a vaccine work?

What does it do to our immune system?

Much can be learned from the research of PHILIP F. INCAO, M.D.

First there are two compartments to the human immune system. 1. The humoral immune system (or Th2 function) 2. The cellular or cell-mediated immune system (or Th1 function) The humoral immune system produces antibodies in the bloodstream as a response to the presence of foreign antigens in the body. The cellular immune system gets rid of foreign antigens through the work of cells in the thymus, tonsils, adenoids, spleen and the lymph system. This action of ridding the body of foreign antigens is known as an acute inflammatory response of the body. This is manifested by the classical signs such as fever, pain, malaise and discharge of mucus, pus, skin rash or diarrhea.

When we give a vaccination we are greatly stimulating the antibody production (Th2) but there is very little stimulating of the digesting and discharging function of the cellular immune system (Th1).If a vaccine stimulated the whole immune system we would get all the symptoms of disease such as the fever, malaise, pain and discharge. However the vaccine only stimulates the humoral immune system thus avoiding the inflammatory response.

Vaccines donít boost the immune system but do stimulate the antibody "tasting and remembering" function of the antibody-mediated branch of the immune system and inhibit the bodyís ability to fight the disease.

Phillip Incao sums it up like this: Vaccinations are usually effective in preventing an individual from manifesting a particular illness, but they do not improve the overall strength or health of the individual nor of the immune system. Instead, vaccinations modify the reactivity of the immune system, decreasing acute discharging inflammatory reactions and increasing the tendency to chronic allergic and auto-immune reactions.

The widespread vaccination programs are causing massive side effects and so many of us are suffering needlessly. These are allergic or auto-immune inflammatory reactions which are caused by the shift of the immune systemís reactivity from the cellular immune system to the humoral immune system.8

Lets look now at the hepatitis B vaccine.

New born babies receive hepatitis B vaccine shortly after they are born and while in hospital.

I remember when this was implemented. I was stunned. In fact I remember reading in a nurseís newsletter that hospitals were to give this vaccination as a conditionality of their hospital funding by the government.

Can you believe this?

Sadly this is true.

The first question we need to ask is why would you want to vaccinate newborn babies against hepatitis B? Hepatitis B is not easily caught by a newborn baby. It is mainly transmitted by sexual contact or through blood transfusion. Hepatitis B is a disease mainly suffered by promiscuous people and intravenous drug users. Babies do not belong to these categories of people at risk! Babies are being used as guinea pigs.

Many adverse effects of hepatits b vaccination include numerous autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis (M.S.), Guillain Barre Syndrome, and autoimmune arthritis. 9

Some countries have reversed their practice of vaccinating infants 15,000 French citizens filed a lawsuit against the French government for understating the risks and overstating the benefits associated with the Hepatitis B vaccine. Hundreds of people were reported to have suffered from autoimmune and neurological disorders, including multiple sclerosis, following Hepatitis B vaccination. As a result, in October 1998, the French Minister of Health ended the mandatory Hepatitis B vaccination program for all school children.10

Why does vaccination continue?

One very strong reason is that we are coerced by our governments to vaccinate ourselves and our children. Parents are told that they have to vaccinate or they wonít be able to go to school They are told they canít get various childhood government payments if they donít vaccinate their children However you can register as conscientious objectors and receive these benefits. Parents are being coerced by doctors because doctors have a financial reward. Doctors are paid by the govt to vaccinate. They receive payments from the government each time they vaccinate a child. Vaccination continues also because we are afraid of illness. We are continually being bombarded by media about the current ďflu epidemics,Ē the latest bird flu pandemic. Is it any wonder that we are afraid.

The issue of vaccination is largely ignored by the media Why is this so? The government does not approve of our media discussing the issue of vaccination for it fears that parents will not vaccinate if they hear the other side of the vaccination issue. The pharmaceutical companies are the largest buyers of advertising space. The practice of vaccination results in record profits for big pharma as it vaccinates first and then sells the medicines to drug the autism sufferers.

So why would anyone vaccinate their children. There is simply no good reason to do it! Be informed!
