Vaccination Toxicity Can Cause Injury


January 17, 2008

By: Mary Tocco

Vaccinations can cause toxic injury in children and adults in several ways. Live or attenuated virus vaccines can actually produce the infection that the vaccine is supposed to prevent. Because vaccines are usually injected into muscle tissue, the major organs of the body may be exposed to the additives and preservatives in vaccines that are toxic as well as the viruses. When we change the method of exposure to the illness, we also change the way the immune system responds to that illness. Normal infectious illnesses do not get into the blood system. Hugh Fudenberg is one of the world’s leading immunologists and 13th most quoted biologist of our time who studied the Flu vaccine given to adults. He found that the aluminum and mercury in the flu shot can accumulate in the brain and lead to Alzheimer disease.

Boyd Haley from the University of Kentucky has done extensive research on the brain and mercury exposure. He believes that the childhood vaccines given up to 2004 with mercury are directly related to the autism epidemic in this country. The live polio vaccine has been known to cause polio in recipients and care givers of children recently vaccinated. That is why since 1999, the live polio vaccine is no longer recommended. The chickenpox vaccine, Virecella Zoster, has shown to cause family members to break out in shingles or herpes simplex. The new rotavirus vaccine for infant diarrhea, RotaTeq has been associated with intussusception of the colon which is a swelling, inflammation of the colon causing restriction and many times results in immediate surgery to correct. Fifty-two babies died in the trials before the vaccine was released and they say the cause was SIDS. Many vaccines can cause shock, seizures, type 1 diabetes, asthma and death. There are also possible, but unproven links between the MMR vaccine and juvenile diabetes and autism. Vaccines are linked to Gulf War syndrome and much, much more.

The second, and probably the most important theory of vaccine injury relates to allergic reactions and the development of an auto-immune response, stimulated by the vaccine and its adjuvants, which assist in stimulating the immune response. Vaccines always contain adjuvants, which are substances known to amplify the body's response to the vaccine. These adjuvants are known to sometimes cause allergic and auto-immune responses on their own. How would a parent know if their two month old infant is allergic to any of the products in a vaccine? Unfortunately, most vaccine reactions are overlooked and dismissed by the doctors. As the child gets more shots the problems get worse and often the injury is in process and takes many months to discover. I personally know medical doctors whose own children were injured by vaccines and they did not see it coming.

Consider this extensive list of vaccine ingredients listed on this very informative web site called WAVE, World Association for Vaccine Education by far the most complete list of vaccine ingredients available to the public. Click here to see this extensive list of vaccine ingredients, not all are listed.

Questions you need to ask yourself before considering vaccinations: Have I thoroughly researched all the ingredients in the shot and do I understand the toxic risks? Is there a history of auto immune problems in the family because many researchers believe children may be genetically hyper sensitive to the adjuvants in the vaccines? Do I understand the difference between natural immunity and vaccine immune response? Is my child at risk for the illness I am vaccinating for? Is that illness really a health threat?

Congress passed the Immunizations Assistance Act in 1965, assisting the drug companies in mass vaccine programs. At that time they recommended that all 5 – 6 year olds be vaccinated before going into school. They start vaccinating infants day 1 immediately after birth and continue until adolescents. Now, if you or your child suffers any injury from the vaccines, the vaccine manufacturer is protected from any litigation. As you know, we have an epidemic of autism, learning problems, and chronically sick children in the country and the government refuses to fund the necessary research that could prove the vaccine connection. The CDC and the FDA admits that mercury is one of the most toxic elements known on Earth and yet they claim that the mercury in vaccines is not related to the catastrophic increase off neurological problems plaguing the children of this country. (The amount of mercury “thimerosal” in childhood vaccines until 2004 was 40 to 60 times the EPA safety level. By 6 months, the average child received 187.5mcg of thimerosal from their vaccines. FDA Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research)

Every new vaccine recommended and mandated by the CDC exposes your child to more toxic ingredients increasing the risk for toxic injury. According to Barbara Fisher, President of The National Vaccine Information Center and Vaccine Advisory Committee Member, between 1964 and 2002, the U.S added eight new vaccines totaling 23 doses of 13 diseases. Now almost every year, new vaccines are added including the Flu shot which still contains 25 mcg of mercury, RotaTeq the rotavirus vaccine and the HPV Cervical cancer vaccine for young girls, totaling 18 different diseases given in multiple vaccines. Ted Koren, chiropractor and vaccine researcher, analyzed the vaccine cocktails and states that our children get 74 injected bacterial/viral components by age of 6. This does not even consider all of the un- natural, carcinogenetic ingredients found in vaccines.

We live in a very toxic environment and it is our responsibility as parents to protect our children and to try to reduce our toxic load. There is much that we do not have personal control over, but vaccinations are one area where we can take control and make informed decisions. If we do not get actively involved in making these decisions, we will eventually lose our rights. How will you feel when you no longer have the right to say “No” and the government forces vaccines or you go to jail like a common criminal? The vaccination program in this country is not about health, it is about profit. Greed and power have been fueling this industry for many years. We must wake up and realize that as long as we passively allow the government to make our healthcare decisions, we do not own our bodies.

Parents must understand that they have the last say as to what gets injected into their children. All states allow exemptions to vaccines but most parents are not informed of their rights. In fact, we are told that our children cannot attend school unless they are fully vaccinated. That is only part of the story. Each state has its own vaccine requirements and most have religious exemptions, medical exemptions and some have philosophical exemptions available. Your local health department will have a copy of the written law which is available for you by request. If you do not know your rights, you are no different than a slave! Education is the key to making sound decisions and our children are counting on us to make health decisions that will affect them for the rest of their lives. Please, do not make vaccine decisions out of fear! I go over this and many more facts extensively in my DVD called, “Are Vaccines Safe."

Parents note: If any mandatory vaccine will cause injury or serious side effects, you will be responsible for the medical bills. Laws have been passed and signed making the vaccine manufacturers, doctors, federal, state and county health departments immune from prosecution. In other words, you will be stuck paying the bills.

Thinking For Yourself Is Now A Crime

Originally published January 7 2008

by Paul Craig Roberts

What was the greatest failure of 2007? President Bush's "surge" in Iraq? The decline in the value of the US dollar? Subprime mortgages? No. The greatest failure of 2007 was the newly sworn in Democratic Congress.

The American people's attempt in November 2006 to rein in a rogue government, which has committed the US to costly military adventures while running roughshod over the US Constitution, failed. Replacing Republicans with Democrats in the House and Senate has made no difference.

The assault on the US Constitution by the Democratic Party is as determined as the assault by the Republicans. On October 23, 2007, the House passed a bill sponsored by California Democratic congresswoman Jane Harman, chairwoman of a Homeland Security subcommittee, that overturns the constitutionally guaranteed rights to free expression, association, and assembly.

The bill passed the House on a vote of 404-6. In the Senate the bill is sponsored by Maine Republican Susan Collins and apparently faces no meaningful opposition.

Harman's bill is called the Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act. When HR 1955 becomes law, it will create a commission tasked with identifying extremist people, groups, and ideas. The commission will hold hearings around the country, taking testimony and compiling a list of dangerous people and beliefs. The bill will, in short, create massive terrorism in the United States. But the perpetrators of terrorism will not be Muslim terrorists; they will be government agents and fellow citizens.

We are beginning to see who will be the inmates of the detention centers being built in the US by Halliburton under government contract.

Who will be on the "extremist beliefs" list? The answer is: civil libertarians, critics of Israel, 9/11 skeptics, critics of the administration's wars and foreign policies, critics of the administration's use of kidnapping, rendition, torture and violation of the Geneva Conventions, and critics of the administration's spying on Americans. Anyone in the way of a powerful interest group--such as environmentalists opposing politically connected developers--is also a candidate for the list.

The "Extremist Beliefs Commission" is the mechanism for identifying Americans who pose "a threat to domestic security" and a threat of "homegrown terrorism" that "cannot be easily prevented through traditional federal intelligence or law enforcement efforts."

This bill is a boon for nasty people. That SOB who stole your girlfriend, that hussy who stole your boyfriend, the gun owner next door--just report them to Homeland Security as holders of extreme beliefs. Homeland Security needs suspects, so they are not going to check. Under the new regime, accusation is evidence. Moreover, "our" elected representatives will never admit that they voted for a bill and created an "Extremist Belief Commission" for which there is neither need nor constitutional basis.

That boss who harasses you for coming late to work--he's a good candidate to be reported; so is that minority employee that you can't fire for any normal reason. So is the husband of that good-looking woman you have been unable to seduce. Every kind of quarrel and jealousy can now be settled with a phone call to Homeland Security.

Soon Halliburton will be building more detention centers.

Americans are so far removed from the roots of their liberty that they just don't get it. Most Americans don't know what habeas corpus is or why it is important to them. But they know what they want, and Jane Harman has given them a new way to settle scores and to advance their own interests.

Even educated liberals believe that the US Constitution is a "living document" that can be changed to mean whatever it needs to mean in order to accommodate some new important cause, such as abortion and legal privileges for minorities and the handicapped. Today it is the "war on terror" that the Constitution must accommodate. Tomorrow it can be the war on whomever or whatever.

Think about it. More than six years ago the World Trade Center and Pentagon were attacked. The US government blamed it on al Qaeda. The 9/11 Commission Report has been subjected to criticism by a large number of qualified people--including the commission's chairman and co-chairman.

Since 9/11 there have been no terrorist attacks in the US. The FBI has tried to orchestrate a few, but the "terrorist plots" never got beyond talk organized and led by FBI agents. There are no visible extremist groups other than the neoconservatives that control the government in Washington. But somehow the House of Representatives overwhelmingly sees a need to create a commission to take testimony and search out extremist views (outside of Washington, of course).

This search for extremist views comes after President Bush and the Justice (sic) Department declared that the President can ignore habeas corpus, ignore the Geneva Conventions, seize people without evidence, hold them indefinitely without presenting charges, torture them until they confess to some made up crime, and take over the government by declaring an emergency. Of course, none of these "patriotic" views are extremist.

The search for extremist views follows also the granting of contracts to Halliburton to build detention centers in the US. No member of Congress or the executive branch ever explained the need for the detention centers or who the detainees would be. Of course, there is nothing extremist about building detention centers in the US for undisclosed inmates.

Clearly the detention centers are not meant to just stand there empty. Thanks to 2007's greatest failure--the Democratic Congress--there is to be an "Extremist Beliefs Commission" to secure inmates for Bush's detention centers.

President Bush promises us that the wars he has launched will cause the "untamed fire of freedom" to "reach the darkest corners of our world." Meanwhile in America the fire of freedom has not only been tamed but also is being extinguished.

The light of liberty has gone out in the United States.

Mother Nature's Total Immune Boosting Breakthroughs

By: Shane Ellison M. Sc.


January 5, 2008

As a drug chemist, I used to fear going to work. I risked numerous health hazards – like being exposed to a cancer causing reagent and even losing my wedding ring to a chemical drain. Cancer is bad, but having your wife feel like you are being careless about your marriage is worse. Unknown to her, I was washing off DNA twisting molecules that burned my skin and eyes while they vacuumed the air from my lungs. My ring fell off somewhere between stripping off my clothes, pulling the lab’s evacuation button, and yanking the emergency shower cord. I naively assumed that these were necessary risks for making so-called life saving drugs. I was wrong.

Outside of emergency medicine, prescription drugs are just as deadly as the reagents used to make them. Antibiotics, antivirals and vaccines are a perfect example. Some would argue that this arsenal of anti-infectious agents is a cure. This is almost true. They make us feel better and can even save us from the perils of death in an emergency. But using them outside of an emergency can cause them to become a growth medium for producing stronger and deadlier infectious agents – think drug resistant Super Bugs like the flesh eating Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Additionally, they can give rise to some nasty side effects – think depression, cancer, liver and kidney failure. Five year old Jennifer learned this the hard way.

Ten days after taking an antibiotic for an earache, Jennifer asked, “Why are my eyes yellow Mommy?” Cured from her earache, Jennifer lost her life to liver failure a few months later.

This is hardly a cure. Vaccines and antivirals are no different. To beat infectious disease and avoid the horrors (like MRSA) that often accompany the use of Western Medicine, Mother Nature’s total immune boosting breakthroughs are a wiser option.

As a pharmaceutical chemist, I employed Mother Nature as the guide for the design and synthesis of drugs. Logic and science – not pharmaceutical hype - dictates that we “go natural first.”

Prescription drugs only mimic a single isolate and rely on a single mechanism of action for effectiveness. Their non-toxic, plant based predecessors contain a multitude of active substances. And instead of depending on one single method of protecting the body, they work in unison to increase the power of the whole immune system. This is the “adaptogenic effect.”

Whether you are fighting flu, getting over whooping cough, or warding off the next Super Bug, adaptogens are your key to beating them! They are so potent in fact, that Big Pharma has been attempting to make counterfeits in their top secret labs for over 15 years!

Garlic is known as “the poor persons” antibiotic. I call it the smart person’s adaptogen. Not only will it help you live young, but it will also protect against a whole host of biological “nasties” – even tuberculosis. This “mycobacterial infection” manifests into chest pain, coughing blood, night sweats and premature death. A new infection of tuberculosis occurs at a rate of one per second among our population! Western Medicine contributes to this unwittingly by using antibiotics that actually teach the bacteria how to work around the body’s natural defenses – resulting in drug-resistant strains. Garlic is different. Thanks to its adoptogenic effects, the active ingredients confer super powers to the whole immune system, allowing it to eradicate “nasties” as they enter our system – and before they can replicate themselves into resistant strains. Garlic can be synergized with the adaptogen andrographis.

Andrographis was first used for its success in treating snakebites and overcoming malaria and dysentery. It is considered to be especially effective in clearing heat from the body and blood and is commonly used in treating heart conditions which include infection in the lungs, urinary tract, and throat – think strep throat. Within the halls of Big Pharma, modern research has proven andrographis to be beneficial at removing blood clots, stopping the spread of multiple types of cancer, and increasing the amount of immune enhancing white blood cells. Its active ingredients have been identified as andrographolides. The Journal of Ethnopharmacology recently showed andrographis to be more effective than the well known astragalus and echinichea for warding off the flu. [1]

I no longer fear going to work. Since tendering my resignation as a corporate drug cook, I don’t face the hazards associated with deadly reagents (and have since acquired a new wedding ring). I chose the natural route for health and if you do the same, you’ll no longer have to fear biological nasties. Nor will you have to default to using Western Medicine’s arsenal of toxic counterfeits.

Open your Eyes


The U.S. Government May Mandate You Get An RFID Microchip Implanted

By: John Jacobs


December 28, 2007

"And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name."
(Revelation 13:16-17)

When that passage was written almost 2,000 years ago nobody knew about computers, satellites or tracking devices. While many will scoff at the possibility of this passage ever happening in our lifetime or any time in the future for that matter, there are some ominous developments that don't make it so far fetched and should cause alarm.

Just this week the British government proposed that dementia sufferers be tagged with RFID tracking devices to keep them from wandering off. The Alzheimer's Society has even backed the British government proposals. Many officials in the U.S. are also advocating RFID tracking devices for Alzheimer patients.

Microchip implants are now commonplace with most pets. The USDA has been working on mandating RFID implants in all livestock raised for human consumption. Implants have been suggested for those in the military, convicts, parolees, sex offenders, and illegal aliens. Hospitals and pharmaceutical companies have proposed the use of RFID tracking devices to cut down on medical errors and to keep better records of drugs dispensed to patients.

While this may all sound benevolent, it's quite possible that in the future a majority of Americans could fall into one category or another and find themselves electronically tagged.

Tommy Thompson, former Secretary of Health and Human Services during President Bush's first term, had a VeriChip tag injected into his arm in 2005 to have digital access to his medical records.

"We are all well aware of the need to enhance information technology in healthcare," Thompson said in a statement. "It is my belief that VeriChip is an important and secure means of accessing medical records and other information."

RFID is showing up everywhere from the products you purchase at the store to the remote key that opens your car doors. Currently the federal government is working towards implementing the Real ID Act which establishes national standards for state-issued driver's licenses and non-driver's identification cards. RFID technology will most certainly be imbedded into the licenses so your records can be easily accessed by law enforcement or those working for Homeland Security.

After December 31, 2009, "a Federal agency may not accept, for any official purpose, a driver's license or identification card issued by a state to any person unless the state is meeting the requirements" specified in the Real ID Act.

While opposition to this technology is growing, it will continue to become more common in medicine, the health care field and with all forms of identification. If you don't want to be a part of Big Brother's brave new world, you better get your head out of the sand and start doing something to oppose this Orwellian technology.
