The great debate
One of my friends pointed out on facebook this week that it’s that time of year–the time for the debate of to vaccinate or not to vaccinate (specifically regarding the flu at this time of year).
There’s been a whole lot going on in the vaccine world lately, and I’ve been reading up on it all.
First, it was revealed that the government settled with the family of a little girl who has autism, who “became” (don’t know what word to use) autistic after receiving 3 injections/5 vaccines (against NINE diseases) in one day for $1.5 million. That’s a lot of money! The most revealing thing about this story, in my opinion, is that the former head of the CDC is currently the head of Merck (one of the biggest vaccine producers). Just one of the many financial ties between the CDC and the vaccine industry that shows exactly why information coming from the CDC really can’t be trusted! http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-31727_162-20015982-10391695.html
Next, the whooping cough outbreak, specifically in California. Most sources are crying that it’s the fault of non-vaccinating families. The interesting thing? Almost two-thirds of those who have had whooping cough in this outbreak have been fully–that’s right, FULLY–vaccinated. http://www.kpbs.org/news/2010/sep/07…ccine-working/
Next, the CDC has done a new study that states that vaccines and autism are not related. First off, the CDC did the study. Look up at #1 above. They’re not really to be trusted. Second of all, the title of all the articles I’ve seen on this topic says vaccines and autism are not related. The article then goes on to talk about thimerosal, and that a study (again, one that can’t necessarily be trusted) was done that shows thimerosal levels are not related to autism. Ok, so I guess the study says that *thimerosal* is not related to autism. NOT that vaccines aren’t related to autism. There is so much other stuff in vaccines, not to mention the fact that we load little tiny bodies full of these chemicals and viruses and also–a lot of people don’t know this–even aborted fetal tissue in some of them. http://www.aolnews.com/health/articl…c4_lnk1|170323
My attention was caught by this article as well, but I haven’t given it an in-depth reading yet. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/david-kirby/up-to-1-in-50-troops-seri_b_119048.html?ref=fb&src=sp
I also greatly enjoyed this video, and the vast knowledge of this mama. http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http…IXsPmw&h=60592
oooh, another good one. From the manufacturer of thimerosal–http://www.vaccine-tlc.org/docs/Thimerosal%20Material%20Safety%20Data%20Sheet.pdf
“Exposure to mercury in utero and in
children may cause mild to severe mental retardation and mild to severe
motor coordination impairment.” “Caution Statement: Thimerosal may enter
the body through the skin, is toxic, alters genetic material, may be
irritating to the eyes, and causes allergic reactions. Effects of
exposure may include numbness of extremities, fetal changes,decreased
offspring survival, and lung tissue changes.”
Keep reading on the link and find what to do if inhaled, ingested, and more. And we inject this into people?!
