VACCINES: ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY OR FUNDAMENTAL RESERVATIONS?

Some people believe that everybody should be required to have vaccines. Others believe they are unsafe and have serious reservations due to the list of known adverse reactions. Vaccine use is increasing every day around the world and along with it are the debates as to efficacy and safety. Why the controversy?

One of the chief reasons is the use of a pharmaceutical compound called Thimerosol, which contains about 50% mercury. Thimerosol is both water and fat soluble and when injected it can penetrate any and every part of the body including the brain, and can bypass the natural defense mechanisms that work to bind and expel toxin metals like mercury. In the 1980's the FDA admitted the toxicity of the compound and outlawed its use topically as an anti- microbial agent and in 1998 outlawed its use. Thimerosol is too toxic to be applied to the skin, yet is still being used as a preservative in vaccines. We have to follow the government’s duplicity to answer the question.

In 1998, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) became aware through investigation that there were significant problems with the use of Thimerosol (mercury) as a preservative in vaccines. Decisions were made to cover up the report and even went on to hire fake studies countering the original study. The Environmental Protection Agency has set the maximum standards for exposure to mercury at .1 microgram per kilogram of body weight per day. A flu vaccine shot has 25 micrograms of mercury in the form of Thimerosol. If you weighed 550 pounds (250 kilograms) you would be able to deal with the mercury in one flu shot. U.S. children received 237.5 micrograms of mercury in the first eighteen months of life. Newborns get one shot of Hep B with contains 12.5 mcg of mercury. At 60 days a baby gets a total of seven vaccines with 62.5 mcg of mercury. At 120 days the baby receives a total of six vaccines with 50 mcg of mercury and this same series is repeated at 180 days with 62.5 mcg of mercury. At 15 to 18 months DTP and HIB the baby is given a total of six grouped vaccines with 50 mcg of mercury.

Since the increased Childhood Vaccination Schedule went into effect, autism rates in the U.S. went from 1 in 10,000 to 1 in 110. The Journal of Toxicological and Environmental Health found a positive association between autism prevalence and childhood vaccination uptake across the U. S. population The United States requires infants to receive 26 vaccines - the most in the world - compared to the 12 vaccines other developed countries such as Sweden and Japan require. Autism is only one adverse effect. Let’s look at others:

  • Vaccines decrease Vitamin C levels draining the body’s supply of antioxidants and weakening the immune system The addition of Thimerosol with another ingredient containing aluminum results in a hundred plus times destruction.
  • Peroxidation can occur in the brain from vaccine additives. The brain has the highest fat content in the body and fat peroxidation occurs when vaccine ingredients interact with fats in the brain resulting in inflammation, swelling and demylination (loss of myelin sheathing)

The challenge of so many vaccines while the immune system is compromised might contribute to an onset of autism. Inflammation can damage the central nervous system. In dogs and cats, vaccines are just as toxic and damaging in their adverse effects, especially leading to cancer.

There is some good news. You can choose to have vaccinations administered singly in order to avoid toxic overloading especially of ill and immune compromised children and pets. You can bolster immunity and protect against adverse vaccine reactions with the use of high doses of vitamin C : one gram of vitamin C per 10 lbs of weight of the child or pet. With adults, taking vitamin D is better than a flu shot, safer and more effective. With pets, a titer taken of the antigen (such as distemper) will provide information on the status of the antibodies, how much immunity the animal has and whether vaccination is really indicated.
