Biblical reasons to oppose vaccination

A FEW PERSONAL STATEMENTS

My family believes in the word of God, and we believe that as Christians we are to “obey God rather than men” Acts 5:29. The Bible clearly states that our bodies are temples and that we are to keep our temples clean and free of all impurities. Vaccines are the injection of toxic chemicals and foreign proteins into the body. This is a direct violation of God’s directive to keep the temple holy.

God also warns us that we are not to mix the blood of man with the blood of animals; many vaccines today are produced using animal tissue. By allowing these things to enter our bodies we are directly disobeying what the Lord has very clearly put in front of us. The bible also speaks of how important human life is and it tells us not to murder. Abortion stops a beating heart and to me, abortion is murder. I will not inject my children with vaccines that contain the dna and tissue of aborted children. This goes against my religion. My children are fearfully and wonderfully made. God created them with an immune system and I stand on the promises of God. If they are supposed to die then it will happen on God’s time and no vaccine would be able to stop it.

– In 1 Thessalonians chapter 5, the bible gives us instructions for christian living. In verse 17 through 18 it says:

“Pray without ceasing. In EVERY thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”

1st Thessalonians chapter 5 also goes on to say in verses 21-22:

“Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil.”

if my child received vaccinations it would go against how the bible instructs me to live a christian life. The bible is the book that I base my faith upon. The bible is the book that I base my whole life upon, and it instructs me to pray without ceasing and to give thanks for everything that God puts into my life and into the lives of my children. I will pray that the Lord protects my family from harm and if my child does fall ill, I will give thanks and trust in the will of God.

If you look at the package insert for every vaccine that I am supposed to give to my child, you will see that none of them have been tested for their carcinogenic, mutagenic potential or impairment of fertility. Giving vaccine to my child that has not been proven to be safe goes against what the bible instructs for me to do. There is no way for me to prove that vaccines are safe. Therefore, I can not give them to my child. 1st Thessalonians also tells me to abstain from evil. Evil is anything that goes against the character of God. The bible shows us over and over again that when people try to out do God that the results are never good. To put our faith in man and not in God goes against the characteristics of God himself, be it so, I view vaccination as evil, and I am making the informed choice to abstain from it.

Many vaccines are also made using the cell lines derived from aborted children. It goes against the characteristics of God for a company to profit from the use of aborted fetal tissue. God lovingly created the lives that were taken because man deemed it necessary and it is evil to involve my children in this practice. It is evil in the eyes of the one and only God, and I request to be given the opportunity to live a christian life as the bible tells me to and to abstain from it.

VERSES

Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? 20 For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s. – 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. – Romans 12:1

Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple. – 1 Corinthians 3:16-18

So you shall serve the Lord your God, and He will bless your bread and your water. And I will take sickness away from the midst of you.- Exodus 23:25

I (God) have carried you since you were born; I have taken care of you from your birth. Even when you are old, I will be the same. Even when your hair has turned gray, I will take care of you. I will sustain you and I will rescue you. Isaiah 46:3-4

For I will restore health to you and heal you of your wounds,’ says the Lord, – Jeremiah 30:17

It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. Matthew 9:12

For the life of every creature is its blood: its blood is its life.- Leviticus 17:14

But should write to them to abstain from the things polluted by idols, and from sexual immorality, and from what has been strangled, and from blood.- Acts 15:20

For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. Psalm 139: 13-14

You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. Psalm 139: 16 (vaccine or no vaccine we are going to die on the day that the Lord has planned for us to die on)

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. – Philippians 4:8 (is vaccination any of these things?)

What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said, “I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.- 2 Corinthians 6:16

For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s.- Romans 14:8

This I declare about the Lord: He alone is my refuge, my place of safety; he is my God, and I trust him. For he will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; no plague will come near your home. For he will order his angels to protect you wherever you go. They will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone. You will trample upon lions and cobras; you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet! The Lord says, “I will rescue those who love me. I will protect those who trust in my name. When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them. I will reward them with a long life and give them my salvation.” – Psalm 91: 2-4, 9-16

**The bible teaches us that our bodies are temples where God himself dwells and that we have the responsibility to keep them clean from impure things. How can monkey kidneys, msg, formaldehyde, micro organisms, phenol, human dna, antibiotics, heavy metals, , ammonium sulfate, genetically modified yeast, animal, bacterial and viral DNA, and glutaraldehyde ever be pure? How does God feel about his children supporting the companies who profit from vaccines grown on and made from the tissue of aborted human children? This is not pure. God gave my kids an immune system and Im going to trust in his will for their lives.

http://www.tetrahedron.org/articles/vaccine_awareness/Vaccination_UnGodly_Practice.html

if you really want to know about vaccines part 2

step 2 – vaccine package inserts

this is also time consuming..but why not read the full report about the vaccine from the vaccine manufacturer before letting your child receive it?

I go to the FDA website and find my way to this page.. http://www.fda.gov/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/ucm093830.htm

I go to the first vaccine that I recognize as a pediatric vaccine (I skip the diphtheria and tetanus toxoids adsorbed because it is unlikely that my kid will get this because there is not pertussis included) so I go to the next one that I recognize and i get here.. http://www.fda.gov/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/ucm094013.htm

there are three different brands of DTaP and you never know which one that the ped will have in stock so I will read all three of them. The first one is the Tripedia so I click on it and get to here.. http://www.fda.gov/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/ucm094013.htm

a few steps that I do once I get on this page are:

1. I CLICK ON VACCINE PACKAGE INSERT and i come to here.. http://www.fda.gov/downloads/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/UCM101580.pdf 

a few things that I notice while reading through this are:

– I read how the vaccine is made using cow protein and such.. mixing foreign proteins into our body cant be good.. look up research on bovine protein and type one diabetes (thats for another time though.. just in case here is one link for later.. http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/nejm199207303270502 )

– I read how there is thimerosal, aluminum, formaldahyde, and polysorbate 80 (also called tween 80) if you already did completed step one then you know all about these things. thimerosal neurotoxin and developmental toxin..aluminum being a developmental toxin..formaldehyde causing cancer and fertility problems, and polysorbate 80 negatively impacting female fertility. Also something you may have not come across while researching yet is the finding of Dr. Russell Blaylock..he found that when you mix aluminum and mercury together, even in small amounts, that the combination makes the toxicity of the metals increase in the human body. see this paper to find out more.. http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/documents/Aluminum-Blaylock.pdf 

– Next I see the contradictions (i skipped the efficacy trials part for now..we will get back to this later) i notice that some contradictions ( contradictions are the situations that make some people not able to receive the vaccine)

a. Encephalopathy (eg, coma, decreased level of consciousness, prolonged seizures) within 7 days of administration of a previous dose of pertussis containing vaccine that is not attributable to another cause

b. Progressive neurologic disorder, including infantile spasms, uncontrolled epilepsy, or progressive encephalopathy. Pertussis vaccine should not be administered to individuals with such conditions. **my question here is, what about the first dose that my baby is supposed to receive at 2 months? How am supposed to know if my child will have a reaction like this if they have never had a previous shot? (why wont they make vaccines safer!!!?? but thats another story..)

– I read through the warnings and all that which is important..but something that really jumps out at me is the statement,

 ” Tripedia vaccine has not been evaluated for its carcinogenic or mutagenic potentials or impairment of fertility.”

how can they recommend that every child have 5 doses of this vaccine before the age the 6 and NOT do these tests? Especially saying that the majority of the ingredients in the vaccine have been shown to impair fertility and play a role in cancer…i would be scared too if my money depended on these things. I wouldnt do the tests either. How the FDA can approve vaccines that are injected into newborns, infants, children, and adults that have not had these tests done blows my mind! babies and children are still growing and developing..how can these tests not be done? You will find that statement written on the vaccine package insert for every vaccine recommended on the pediatric schedule. (on most inserts its around section 13 that you can find this info)

– next I move on to Adverse Reactions. a few things I notice.

a. the safety trials were conducted by the company who makes the vaccine and the NIH. Both groups gain financially from vaccines. Why are they conducting the safety studies? Especially given the fact that pharmaceutical companies cannot be held liable for injuries caused by vaccines. Vaccine safety doesnt mess with the money flowing into their pockets..so how careful and transparent will they be?

b. only 1000 children were monitored for adverse events through a fourth dose. Only 580 children were monitored through a fifth dose.

c. in another safety study 673 infants were used. 505 of them received the Tridepia DTaP vaccine. 167 infants received the DTP whole cell pertussis vaccine. Why are they using another vaccine ( a vaccine that was discontinued in the US because it is so unsafe) as the placebo? A placebo is supposed to be saline water or another harmless substance..what are they scared of? I also find it funny how the tests done to show efficacy of the vaccine (how well it works) included infants who received no vaccine..but the safety studies did not. You will find this same pattern for almost every vaccine recommended.

– I could write a book about the things on this insert but you are smart..you can see for yourself. I see that out of 14,971 infants (and also..you will find this out once we move on to the next step but only HEALTHY infants are allowed to participate in these studies..ive read figures as high as 60% of the babies born in the country would not be eligible to participate in these safety studies..they only allow healthy babies to participate but then they recommend the vaccine to all babies…what?) ok..i read that out of 14,971 infants who received the Tripedia vaccine 13 of them died. 7 out of the 13 deaths were SIDS. (research for another time but read up on SIDS and vaccines..it will blow your mind..)

– i read this, ” Adverse events reported during post approval use of Tripedia vaccine include idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, SIDS, anaphlactic reation, celulitis, autism, convulsion, encephalopathy, neuropathy..events were included in this list because of the seriousness or frequency of reporting.” …but go figure they dont give us any details about the amount of reports. Keep in mind that former FDA Commissioner David Kessler wrote in the Journal of the American Medical Association that “only about 1% of serious adverse events are reported to the FDA.”  see http://jama.jamanetwork.com/article.aspx?articleid=406452 see this article too for additional reading.. http://therefusers.com/refusers-newsroom/6-times-more-measles-vaccine-adverse-reaction-reports-than-measles-cases-in-2011/

Do this for all the vaccines. having fun yet? 🙂

**this video is awesome for getting a grasp on how the safety studies are done for vaccines. I would watch this before we move to the next step. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GG2bfrrgvU4

vax mem truth

If you really want to know about vaccines – part 1

these are the things that your doctor doesn’t think you deserve to know about. This is the first list that I created for a friend of mine who is trying to research vaccines. (the same friend I mentioned in my last post called, on tinfoil hats, population control and vaccines.”

babyshots

the first thing.. 1. RESEARCHING VACCINE INGREDIENTS

– see this PDF from the CDC http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/pubs/pinkbook/downloads/appendices/B/excipient-table-2.pdf

– you can do this however you would like but as an example today, I am going to research ingredients by vaccine. I will do the first few ingredients of the Polio vaccine. The ingredients in the IPV are: formaldehyde.  2- phenoxyethanol , neomycin, streptomycin, polymyxin B, monkey kidney cells, Eagle MEM modified medium, calf serum protein.

– FORMALDEHYDE

– I google search “formaldehyde msds” (material safety data sheet) and I get this

**before you go on to the next step go down and look at neomycn..i found a better way to do this..you can always come back to these databases if you need to. ( go here and search for formaldehyde.)

– then I go to www.scorecard.com just to get some extra info..then I scroll down and near the bottom on the right hand side i click on  chemical profiles  and it brings me to here . I search for formaldehyde and i get this

– then I go to www.pubmed.com and search formaldehyde and i get this  – next I look over to the left hand side and see the tab called related searches. I click on formaldehyde toxicity. there are so many studies to read that you  could read about formaldehyde toxicity for days..a study catches my eye up in the top left corner under a tab called, titles with your search terms,  with the title,  Reproductive and developmental toxicity of formaldehyde: a systematic review, I click on it and come to this  – I read the abstract and then at the bottom I see , Free PMC article, I click on this so I can read the full text and I come to this

– I could continue reading for hours if I wanted to.. (and just a side note..I have done just what is listed above and I did end up reading for hours..)

– 2- PHENOXYETHANOL

– I google for the msds and I get this 

– the search on http://www.scorecard gives me some problems so I copy and paste the cas# from the msds ( 122-99-6) this search brings me to here

– I entered 2-phenoxyethanol toxicity on pubmed search and got this .I kept on seeing the term Ethylene glycol monophenyl ether in the titles. I looked this word up and it is the same thing as phenoxyethanol and you read my blog to see where all that went. (im talking about the blog I linked above, on tinfoil hats, vaccines and population control) ok 24 hours later I…

NEOMYCIN

google neomycin msds you get this

now that I found that new database during my educational safari last night.. I have cut down on some steps..so life is easy for me. I would still look up the msds for everything too. This database has everything all in one place.. you can find out just about everything in the table of contents on the left hand side.

– go here  and i search for neomycin. on left hand side there will be a table of contents..you can find everything almost. there are medical and scientific studies, reports of toxicology and so on. if this database doesnt have one of the chemicals you can go through scorecard.com again and make sure that you stay on the HSDB database and not to click on one of the other databases. This might sound confusing but you’ll see what im talking about..just use the link above.

so you get the gist of things..to really understand vaccines you need to do this for every single ingredient that could potentially be in a vaccine given to one of your kids. Now that ive found that database..it’s on man..im going to go back through them all again. whats-in-a-vaccine

on tinfoil hats, vaccines, and population control

Today I started working on a list of good research links for my friend who is trying to think through vaccinations for her children. I thought that it would be easy just to put together a list with stuff like the cdc table of vaccine ingredients and links to the vaccine package insert. I decided I would hit up pubmed for a few basic papers..this was a bad idea. I ended up lost in pubmed for hours. I should have done this a long time ago. I am learning more by trying to help someone else than ive learned for myself in a long time. One of the things that I ran into this evening was 2-phenoxyethanol. 2-phenoxyethanol is is used as a perservative in vaccines.

VACCINES THAT CONTAIN 2-PHENOXYETHANOL:

  •  DTaP: * and just a side note.. the only DTaP vaccine that does not contain phenoxyethanol contains thimerosal.

a. Infanrix – 2.5 mg (1)
b. Daptacel – .6% (2)

  •  DTaP-Heb B-IPV: Pediarix- 2.5 mg (3)
  •  Hepatitis A: Havarix- .5% (4)
  •  Poliovirus inactivated: IPV – .5% (5)
  •  Tdap: adacel- .6% (6) * side note..this vaccine is recommended for woman to have during every pregnancy. This shot also contains aluminum, formaldehyde, and glutaraldehyde..there are scientific studies linking every substance that I just listed to fetal and reproductive toxicity. All of these toxic substances are also in the DTaP. If you look at the link at the bottom of the cdc table of vaccine ingredients you will realize that I have only scratched the surface.
  • Td: Sanofi Pasteur- 3 mg (7)

STARTING AT 2 MONTHS, BEFORE A CHILD GRADUATES HIGHSCHOOL THEY ARE RECOMMENDED TO HAVE RECEIVED:

  •  DTAP- 5 doses
  •  POLIO- 5 doses
  •  HEP A- 4 doses
  •  TDAP- 3 doses
  •  TOTAL # OF DOSES BEFORE THE AGE OF 18: 17 (8)

A FEW INTERESTING THINGS THAT I FOUND OUT ABOUT 2-PHENOXYETHANOL

  •  2-phenoxyethanol: cas# 122-99-6
  •  ethylene glycol monophenyl ether: cas# 122-99-6

ethylene glycol monophenyl ether is one of the glycol ethers and is another name for 2-phenoxyethanol. (9) Everytime you see the word “ethylene glycol monophenyl ether” or “EGMP” it is talking about, 2-phenoxyethanol, the preservative that is injected into millions of infants and children every year.

ASSESSMENT OF ETHYLENE GLYCOL MONOBUTYL [another of the glycol ethers] AND MONOPHENYL ETHER REPRODUCTIVE TOXICITY..

“A continuous breeding reproduction study design was utilized to examine the reproductive toxicity of ethylene glycol monobutyl ether (EGBE) and ethylene glycol monophenyl ether (EGPE)(EGPE = vaccine ingredient). continuous breeding reproduction study design was utilized to examine the reproductive toxicity of ethylene glycol monobutyl ether (EGBE) and ethylene glycol monophenyl ether (EGPE).. Both male and female mice were dosed for 7 days prior to and during a 98-day cohabitation period. EGBE was toxic at the high (2%) and mid dose (1%) to adult F0 female mice: 13 out of 22 females at the high dose and 6 out of 20 at the mid dose died during the cohabitation period. Both the high- and mid-dose animals produced fewer litters/pair, fewer pups/litter, with decreased pup weight. These effects occurred in the presence of decreased body weight, decreased water consumption, and increased kidney weight. A crossover mating trial indicated that the reproductive effects could be attributed primarily to an effect on the female. This was substantiated at necropsy where testes and epididymis weights were normal as were sperm number and motility. Fertility of the offspring of the 0.5% group was normal in the presence of increased liver weights. With respect to EGPE, there was no change in the ability to produce five litters during the continuous breeding period. There was, however, a significant but small (10-15%) decrease in the number of pups/litter and in pup weight in the high-dose group. A crossover mating trial suggested a female component of the reproductive toxicity of EGPE. While fertility was only minimally compromised, severe neonatal toxicity was observed. By Day 21 there were only 8 out of 40 litters in the mid- and high-dose groups which had at least one male and female/litter. Second generation reproductive performance of the mid-dose group (1.25%) was unaffected except for a small decrease in live pup weight. In summary the reproductive toxicity of EGBE and EGPE was only evident in the female and occurred at doses which elicited general toxicity. EGBE was particularly toxic to adult female mice while EGPE was particularly toxic to immature mice of both sexes.” (10)

** I had to read this about ten times just to make sure that I was reading it right. Did that really just say what I thought it did? Does anyone else notice how the authors try their hardest to play down the results in the group that received EGPE? But if you read it a few times..you will quickly realize that the results for the group that received 2-phenoxyethanol are not good.

  • there was a slow decline in fertility that caused a drop in the weight and health of the next generation.
  •  severe neonatal (infants) toxicity was observed.
  • the abstract never gave the information needed to know how many in the EGPE group died..but it seems more died in the EGPE group than in the EGBE group. Since it never gave the orginal number of pups/liter there is no way to know.
  •  the other ether in the study caused deaths and toxic events to happen to the adult female mice. The glysol ether that is in several pediatric vaccines, 2-phenoxyethanol, was particularly toxic and caused death in the baby and children mice of both sexes.
  • and these results were what happened after the mice ate 2-phenoxyethanol..infants and children are injected with this substance. (17 times before the age of 18, as i mentioned above)

REPRODUCTIVE TOXICOLOGY: ETHYLENE GLYCOL MONOPHENYL ETHER

“In summary, ethylene glycol monophenyl ether produced significant reproductive and developmental toxicity..Ethylene glycol monophenyl
ether caused significant toxicity in growing animals, as evidenced by the reduced body weight in neonates in Tasks 2, 3, and 4, and the large increase in postnatal lethality as the animals grew to the age of mating.” (11)

OCCUPATION AND MALE INFERTILITY: GLYCOL ETHERS AND OTHER EXPOSURES

“Conclusions: Glycol ether exposure was related to low motile sperm count in men attending fertility clinics. This suggests that, at the time of the study, glycol ethers continued to be a hazard for male fertility.” (12)

I POSTED THIS ON A FACEBOOK PAGE THAT I STARTED CALLED UNASHAMED CHRISTIAN PARENTS OF UNVACCINATED CHILDREN. THIS IS A COMMENT THAT I RECEIVED FOR THE POST:

The idea of vaccination for population control is ridiculous. You all all privileged enough to live in a country that has been vaccinating for CENTURIES…. This has enabled us to live relatively disease free. What about the people in third world countries who stand in line for hours to get life SAVING vaccinations. Many of these people would die without them. Its your right to choose to vaccinate or not. Don’t spread insane propaganda about some sort of world sterility plan.

MY RESPONSE:

I do understand why you would comment what you did..but did I once mention population control in my post? No I did not, I only said something about it in the comments, and even then I only referenced it as an idea. Look around this page..you will not see postings about population control and aliens. I don’t use tin foil. Aluminum is bad for you. That’s one reason I don’t agree with the vaccination schedule. Did you read the post? Or did you just read the comments and decide to remind everyone that vaccines save lifes? I’m not saying that is not true. Many people in the “anti vaccine” community would highly disagree with me on that..but I am not going to say that vaccines have not saved lifes bc there is data that shows this to be true in some instances. However, there are MANY other natural ways to prevent disease that do not harm the brain and the body and that do not negatively interfere with fertility…these have all been documented as well. Look at the decline in disease rates after sanitation improved..look at the Karachi soap study. Please read the links I’ve included in the post above and then remember that starting at two months, before a child graduates high school they are recommended to receive 17 doses of vaccine which contain 2-phenoxyethanol..and then tell me if it does not make logical sense to question whether or not this could be a factor in the increasing number of fertility clinics that are poping up. everywhere in the US and around the globe.

**do people really not want to know the truth?

“The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie – deliberate, contrived and dishonest -but the myth -persistent, persuasive and unrealistic – Too often we hold fast to the cliches of our forebears. We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations. We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.” – John F. Kennedy

“Intuition will tell the thinking mind where to look next.” -Jonas Salk (ohh the irony)

Why would someone NOT vaccinate their child?! Vaccines are good…right?

I know that the idea of not vaccinating your children, to some, is a shocking idea. Some may think that it is an irresponsible thing to do and some may even think that parents who makes this choice are neglecting their children.  I can understand why some may feel this way because I once felt the same way. I didnt think that parents who didnt vaccinate were bad parents..I just thought that they were crazy. I couldnt understand why someone would not give their children shots that would protect them against deadly diseases. How I once thought is completely reasonable given how we are conditioned from childhood to put our faith in vaccines. One of my favorite books as a child was a Berenstain Bears book about brother and sister bear getting shots at the doctors office. Just the other day, my children and I were watching PBS when a popular childrens program dedicated an entire show to discuss how important getting your flu shot is. As adults we are further conditioned by the media and the medical establishment. We are made to believe that vaccines saved us and that  vaccines are our only option for living healthy lives. This is how I felt when my son was born. Before my son’s 2 month check up,  I remember sitting in the parking lot outside of his pediatrician’s office crying. Something inside of me almost made me leave. But I didnt. I wiped the mascara from underneath my eyes.. “I have to hold my baby down while he gets these shots because I love him..I am doing this to protect him.”  This is what I told myself;  this is what a lot of parents probably tell themselves. 

 

The last time I ever told myself this was at my son’s two month check up. He reacted badly to the 6 shots they gave him and something went off in my mind..”something isnt right here.” That day as I held my screaming son, I got down on my knees before God and I asked him to show me the truth. That simple prayer has sent me down the longest road that I have ever been on..and I am still on it..I learn new things everyday.

One aspect of this whole vaccine debate that drives me to the point of tears is the lack of common sense. I would have came to the same conclusion years ago about vaccines if I would have only thought to look at the right things. All that a person really needs to look at when researching vaccines is the list of vaccine ingredients  (for instructions on how to search through chemical databases and research these ingredients see this post).  If common sense was king then vaccines as they are today would have never happened.  Infants and children receive somewhere around 34 shots by the time they 6 years of age. In 1983, before a child turned 6.. they were recommended to receive 10.  Many of shots are mulit dose vaccines ( like the DTaP is actually 3 vaccines in one and the MMR is 3 vaccines in one) How can we inject the things that are in vaccines into a developing mind and body 34 times, and in many cases, 8 or 9 shots at once.. and expect the results not to be negative?

The most frustrating thing to me is that parents who have made the choice to refuse, delay, or be selective about vaccines are constantly made to look like “the bad guy,” when in reality the we have very sound  reasons for our choices. There is a battle going on for our minds. If you think that I am just another conspiracy theorist please read the following links in detail…after you have done so, I can almost promise that your feelings will have changed. I am going to share a few link for anyone who may be searching to learn more about this topic. Also, if you are reading this and you vaccinate your children.. I want you to know that as long as you are comfortable with the informed decision on vaccination that you have made, I respect that. Hopefully after reading this, you will also respect my decision.

1st thing to consider: MONEY IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN OUR HEALTH AND OUR RIGHTS TO KNOW THE WHOLE STORY

example 1: SIMPSONWOOD

In 2000 a secret meeting was held at the Simpsonwood Conference Center in Simpsonwood, Georgia. CDC and other government officials, Pharm reps, and several prominate doctors met to discuss the connection between thimerosal and brain damage..  Thimerosal is a compound that was in many childhood vaccines up until the latter half of 2002 – but is now only in most flu shots — the compound is 49% mercury.  A study conducted by Dr. Thomas Verstraeten of the CDC had indeed found a link between thimerosal and brain injury and this meeting was called to figure out what to do about it. The simpsonwood transcript was obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and what can be read is shocking.

the number of dose related relationships [between mercury and autism] are  linear and statistically significant. You can play with this all you want. They  are linear. They are statistically significant.” – Dr. William Weil, American  Academy of Pediatrics. Simpsonwood, GA, June 7, 2000 —

 the issue is that it is impossible, unethical to leave kids unimmunized, so  you will never, ever resolve that issue [regarding the impact of mercury].” –  Dr. Robert Chen, Chief of Vaccine Safety and Development, Centers For Disease  Control, Simpsonwood, GA, June 7, 2000 —

 Forgive this personal comment, but I got called out at eight o’clock for an  emergency call and my daughter-in-law delivered a son by c-section. Our first  male in the line of the next generation and I do not want that grandson to get a  Thimerosal containing vaccine until we know better what is going on. It will  probably take a long time. In the meantime, and I know there are probably  implications for this internationally, but in the meanwhile I think I want that  grandson to only be given Thimerosal-free vaccines. – Dr. Robert Johnson,  Immunologist, University of Colorado, Simpsonwood, GA, June 7,  2000 —

 But there is now the point at which the research results have to be  handled, and even if this committee decides that there is no association and  that information gets out, the work has been done and through the freedom of  information that will be taken by others and will be used in other ways beyond  the control of this group. And I am very concerned about that as I suspect that  it is already too late to do anything regardless of any professional body and  what they say…My mandate as I sit here in this group is to make sure at the end  of the day that 100,000,000 are immunized with DTP, Hepatitis B and if possible  Hib, this year, next year and for many years to come, and that will have to be  with thimerosal containing vaccines unless a miracle occurs and an alternative  is found quickly and is tried and found to be safe. – Dr. John Clements,  World Health Organization, Simpsonwood, GA, June 7, 2000 —

Shockingly, the CDC received letters in July and September 1999 from Merck and SmithKline Beecham, respectively, letting CDC know that full  production of Thimerosal-free vaccines for Hepatitis B and DTaP could be made  available almost immediately. To SmithKline, CDC responded with a tepid letter thanking them for the offer,  but not taking them up on it. Thimerosal would remain in the vaccines on the  Childhood Immunization Schedule for three more years, it would be late 2002  before Thimerosal-free vaccines were finally available for all vaccines. They were well aware that this toxic substance was hurting our children, but they chose to wait.  How many children were damaged during those 3 years simply because money means more to our government?

example 2: CONFLICTS OF INTEREST

What is it that you hear constantly in the media about vaccines? The answer to that question is that vaccines are safe and this newly released study proves it. As mentioned above, the study written by the CDC’s Dr. Verstraeten that was the main reason for the simpsonwood conference was released in 2003, three years after the simpsonwood incident. Of course the data had been “handled” by then and the results showed no connection between thimerosal and brain injury (even though there are many peer reviewed studies that do show a connection – see the bottom of this entry for a few links to thimerosal studies). How is it that this significant linear relationship between the two simply disappered? The study was written by the Centers for Disease Control, the federal agency in charge of the vaccine program. The lead author, Thomas Verstraeten, left to take a job with Glaxo SmithKline — a vaccine manufacturer — after the study was written and before it was published. The U.S. Congress later cited this as an ethical violation.

Conflicts of Interest in Vaccine Safety Research, an article published in  2012 in the peer reviewed journal called Accountability in Reseach had this to say:

Conflicts of interest (COls) cloud vaccine safety research. Sponsors of research have competing interests that may impede the objective study of vaccine side effects. Vaccine manufacturers, health officials, and medical journals may have financial and bureaucratic reasons for not wanting to acknowledge the risks of vaccines. —

 Vaccine  manufacturers have a COl related to the tension between making profits and studying the negative side effects of their products. Vaccines are a big and growing business: Worldwide sales of pediatric vaccines in 2009 were about $11.5 billion, and sales are expected to reach close to $20 billion by 2014 (Sahoo, 2010). Once manufacturers have met the expensive regulatory hurdles of vaccine approval, they have little incentive to research the safety of their products. Although postlicensure analyses are typically undertaken to ensure the safety of the products, such analyses in the United States, for example, are performed by the same regulatory agencies that initially approved the vaccines (Salmon et al., 2004). Moreover, vaccine manufacturers do not face the threat of lawsuits that might motivate other industries to seek to improve safety. The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 protects vaccine companies in the United States from being sued. The protection was deemed necessary, because vaccine manufacturers were facing increasing tort litigation and an adequate supply of vaccines at stable costs was considered essential for public health (Supreme Court, 2011). One implication of the legislation was to provide incentives for the development of new vaccines, which typically earned smaller profit margins per dose than other drugs. Citizens in the United Kingdom may sue vaccine manufacturers, but no plaintiff has ever been successful (Hanson, 2007).

 Compounding the COls inherent in the business of manufacturing vaccines is the fact that vaccine manufacturers sponsor research. The influence of industry is wide-spread: It affects individuals as well as institutions and study outcomes as well as research initiatives. In a survey of faculty at top U.S. medical research institutions, Tereskerz et al. (2009) found over two-thirds of researchers (338 out of 506) received some support from industry. Studies show that the financial interests of researchers are positively associated with outcomes favorable to the sponsor in medical studies (Friedman and Richter, 2004; Jefferson et al., 2009; Yank et al., 2007). Not only individual researchers, but also research institutions can be influenced by industry sponsorships such as grants, endowed chairs, and other gifts (Tereskerz, 2003). Industry sponsorship can influence not only outcome, but research initiatives as well: The Tereskerz et al. (2009) survey mentioned above also found 35% of respondents knew of industry-sponsored researchers who compromised their research agenda because the researchers were sponsored by industry. Where industry support was important to the research unit, over half of respondents knew of researchers who compromised their research initiatives. The same study noted that industry support tended to go to senior or well-established researchers, so industry influence on research agenda could reach younger researchers who work with or for their more established mentors. —

 The U.S. FDA faces at least three COls when it considers sponsoring research into the possible link between vaccines and autism. The first is the mission of the FDA, which is to protect “the public health by assuring the safety, efficacy, and security of human and veterinary drugs …. The FDA also helps the public get the accurate, science-based information they need to use medicines and foods to improve their health” (FDA, 2009). The FDA evaluates and approves vaccines for safety and efficacy. Sponsoring research that finds a link between autism and vaccines that the FDA has approved could greatly damage the Administration’s reputation and reduce public trust in the FDA.  A second major COl in the FDA lies in the way the Administration is funded. In 1992, the Prescription Drug User Fee Act was adopted whereby pharmaceutical companies paid fees to have their drugs evaluated. The intent of the legislation was to enhance the resources of the FDA and thereby speed up evaluations. However, industry funding could result in industry influence (Angell, 2004). While the Act refers only to prescription drugs and not vaccines, many vaccine manufacturers also produce prescription drugs. The user fees paid by drug manufacturers provide incentives for the FDA to be more friendly to the industry since it is dependent upon industry funding. —

 After a vaccine receives approval from the US. FDA, the US. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) decides whether to add a vaccine to its recommended schedule for the US. civilian population. The CDC also sponsors research on vaccine safety. It has at least three major COls that could hamper its ability to provide objective research about vaccines. The first is the nature of the CDC’s mandate, which is to prevent and control disease, injury, and disability (CDC, 2012). Thus, the CDC is obligated to prevent disease, which it does largely by promoting vaccination. It is also charged with controlling disabilities. If the research it sponsors were to identify vaccines as being hazardous and if the vaccination schedule it recommends is associated with autism, it would be forced to concede that its policies did not support its goals and actually promoted disabilities. Since the CDC is charged with promoting vaccination programs as well as assessing vaccine risks, it might be reluctant to sponsor research that uncovers risks it may have created. —

 An example of the CDC being concerned about research into a problem it may have created occurred in 2000, when the CDC commissioned the Institute of Medicine (lOM) to evaluate vaccine safety, particularly the possible links between the mumps-measles-rubella vaccine and the mercury-containing preservative thimerosal with autism. In a discussion concerning the proposed study (lOM, 2001), Dr. Marie McCormick, then Chair of the Immunization Safety Review Committee of the lOM, said (p, 33), “[The CDC] wants us to declare, well, these things [vaccines] are pretty safe on a population basis.” Later in this planning discussion, Dr. McCormick decided (p. 97), “[W]e are not ever going to come down that [autism] is a true side effect [of vaccines] … “, thereby declaring a conclusion before the study was undertaken. In its final report, the IOM stated that although a link between vaccines and autism was possible theoretically, epidemiological studies favored no causal link and suggested funds be channeled to more promising areas of research (lOM, 2004). Other researchers who receive grants from the CDC may also be leery of investigating problems their benefactor may have created. —

 Finally, officials at the CDC may see working for the government as a stepping stone to employment at a vaccine manufacturer. A year after leaving as director of CDC in 2009, Dr. Julie Gerberding took a position as president of Merck Vaccines. During her tenure as CDC director from 2002 to 2008, Dr. Gerberding supported the above-mentioned IOM study as well as other studies that concluded no link between vaccines and neurological disorders could be found (see CDC, 2010, for an overview of the studies). Another former CDC employee, Dr. Thomas Verstraeten, began working for GlaxoSmithKline when he was in the process of completing a major study on the potential negative side effects of thimerosal at the CDC (Verstraeten, 2004); the study found no consistent significant associations between thimerosal and negative neurological outcomes (Verstraeten et aI., 2003). While the studies may have been good analyses, the COl regarding research emphasis or conclusion is unavoidable when a public official takes a lucrative position in the industry that she/he previously regulated. — 

 While U.S. Congressional committees have undertaken a few investigations into the possible link between vaccines and autism (US HR, 2000 a,b, 2003), they have not actively pursued the issue. Members of Congress may be reluctant to sponsor research into vaccine safety for at least two reasons: contributions and prospects of future employment. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, the pharmaceutical/health products industry spent over $2.3 billion between 1998 and 2011 to lobby elected officials and candidates, more than any other industry (CRP, 2011). CRP also reports that the number of lobbyists increased steadily from 729 in 1998 to a peak of 1,803 in 2008, declining to 1,612 in 2010 (CRP, 2010). Since 2005, the industry employed at least three lobbyists for every member of Congress. Additionally, a revolving door exists between Congress and the pharmaceutical industry. Over half of the lobbyists employed by the pharmaceutical industry in 2008 had worked in Congress or another branch of the federal government, and 35 had been former members of Congress (Beckel, 2009). Mandating a study that could hurt major contributors or future employers could result in fewer contributions or no offers of employment or both. —

This article goes far deeper into this subject and is a must read. I linked the pdf file to this article above but if you would like to read the article without having to download the pdf see – http://therefusers.com/refusers-newsroom/conflicts-of-interest-in-vaccine-safety-research-article-from-peer-reviewed-journal/

This issue goes much deeper. It is hard for me to be brief when discussing it. I will share just one more example.

In August of 1998 the RotaShield vaccine (a vaccine for rotavirus) was approved for use by the FDA. By march of 1999 the RotaShield vaccine had been recommended by the CDC for universal use. 7 months later, in October of 1999, the vaccine was pulled from the US market because the vaccine was causing serious intussusception (bowel obstruction) in children. on June 15, 2000 at the

CONFLICTS OF INTEREST AND VACCINE DEVELOPMENT–PRESERVING THE INTEGRITY OF THE PROCESS HEARING before the COMMITTEE ON GOVERNMENT REFORM HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES ONE HUNDRED SIXTH CONGRESS SECOND SESSION, Rep. Dan Burton had this to say in regards to the Rotashield vaccine:

“So the question is, was there evidence to indicate that the vaccine was not safe, and if so, why was it licensed in the first place?How good a job did the advisory committees do? We reviewed the minutes of the meetings. At the FDA’s committee, there were discussions about adverse events. They were aware of potential problems. Five children out of 10,000 developed bowel obstructions. There were also concerns about children failing to thrive and developing high fevers, which as we know from other vaccine hearings, can lead to brain injury. Even with all of these concerns, the committee voted unanimously to approve it.”

5 children out of 10,000 suffered bowl obstruction during the clinical trials for Rotashield. That is an intussusception rate of 1 in 2000! The high occurance of adverse reactions during the clinical trials were not the only thing ignored. Rep. Gilman speaks of this when he said:

“Rotashield was developed to combat rotavirus, which symptoms are vomiting, diarrhea, low grade fever. However, it was pulled from the market following reports of serious illness in over 100 babies. The Rotashield vaccine intended to cure these symptoms, instead, caused 2 deaths, 53 cases of surgery and 47 cases of required medical care, all in babies.

The FDA and its advisory committee approved the vaccine in 1999, overlooked the 1989 tests of a similar vaccine in China in which a number of babies suffered identical bowel problems to those caused by rotashield known as intussusception, a bowel obstruction so severe that the intestine swallows itself. Moreover, at least one of the researchers involved in that China test is now working at the CDC, was also involved in Rotashield. Therefore, the data from the earlier China test was available to the advisory committee members who approved the Rotashield vaccine but was overlooked or ignored.

Regardless of the reason why this information was disregarded, American babies suffered, underwent surgery and some even died. The FDA and CDC advisory committee members do have the responsibility of abiding by all regulations to ensure the safety of our public health. Human life should not be undermined or compromised for personal or financial ties that advisory members may have to the pharmaceutical industry.”

and what financial ties and conflict of interest might these FDA and CDC advisory committee members have? Rep Burton gives a summary to answer this question:

“Families need to have confidence that the vaccines that their children take are safe, effective and very necessary. Doctors need to feel confident that when the FDA licenses a drug, that it’s really safe and that the pharmaceutical industry has not influenced the decisionmaking process. Doctors place trust in the FDA and assume that if the FDA has licensed a drug, it’s safe for use. Has that trust been violated? How confident in the safety and need of specific vaccines would doctors and parents be if they learned the following:

1. that members, including the chair of the FDA and CDC advisory committees who make these decisions own stock in drug companies that make the vaccines.

2. that individuals on both advisory committees own patents for vaccines under consideration, or affected by the decisions of the committees.

3. that three out of the five of the members of the FDA’s advisory committee who voted for the rotavirus vaccine had conflicts of interest that were waived.

4. that 7 individuals of the 15 member FDA advisory committee were not present at the meeting. Two others were excluded from the vote, and the remaining five were joined by five temporary voting members who all voted to license the product.

5. that the CDC grants conflict of interest waivers to every member of their advisory committee a year at a time, and allows full participation in the discussions leading up to a vote by every member, whether they have a financial stake in the decision or not. So they’re discussing it, influencing other members possibly, whether they have a financial stake or not.

6. that the CDC’s advisory committee has no public members, no parents have a vote in whether or not a vaccine belongs on the childhood immunization schedule. The FDA’s committee only has one public member.

How confident can we be in the recommendations for the Food and Drug Administration when the chairman and other individuals on their advisory committee own stock in major manufacturers of vaccines? How confident can we be in a system when the agency seems to feel that the number of experts is so few around the country that everyone has a conflict and thus waivers must be granted? It almost appears that there is an “old boys network” of vaccine advisors that rotate between the CDC and FDA, at times serving simultaneously. Some of these individuals served for more than 4 years. We found one instance where an individual served for 16 years continuously on the CDC committee. With over 700,000 physicians in this country, how can one person be so indispensable that they stay on a committee for 16 years?”

If you read the document in full, Rep Burton goes into great detail about specific advisory members and the financial ties that they have to pharm companies. The things that you will read will make you sick. If you have the time, I would definitly read this in full. I am sick of these people being the jurors deciding so many children’s lives. In closing, I’ll leave you with one more thing that Rep. Burton had to say:

“Now, I don’t know how the bureaucracy in Washington feels, but I think I can speak for an awful lot of parents around the country who want to have confidence that the vaccinations their kids are getting have been tested, and that there’s been an unbiased judgment made as to whether or not they’re going to be safe as well as effective. And the problem with the bureaucracy is, you keep saying, well, we can’t do this because we might not be able to attract people to these advisory committees. Look, there are 700,000 doctors. There must be somebody else out there in that vast mass of humanity that has the expertise to be able to be on these advisory boards. And if a parent knew that there was a financial interest, possible conflict of interest from the person making the decisions on the vaccination, especially if we find out after the fact that kids died or are ruined for life, then I think the parents would say, you know, maybe we ought to make absolutely sure there’s no conflict before we allow these people to be on these advisory panels making these decisions. Now, you know, you may disagree because you serve in a position in the bureaucracy where these decisions are made, and you think that that’s the way it ought to be. I speak from a little bit of experience. I have two grandchildren, two. One got a hepatitis B shot and within 3 hours she was dying. She wasn’t breathing any longer. They had to rush her to the hospital and she survived. Now, there’s a lot of parents who have had that kind of problem with other drugs and other vaccinations. My grandson got nine shots in 1 day. He was a perfectly normal child. And within about 3 or 4 or 5 days, a week, he became autistic. Now, it may be a coincidence. A lot of people say that’s coincidental. But the one thing I want to make sure of as a grandparent or as a parent is that the guys making these decisions or the ladies making these decisions, these doctors, these experts, don’t have some kind of a conflict of interest that skews their judgment in one direction or the other. And the American people, well, you can say, we shouldn’t be making this stuff public. Let me tell you something. Everybody in American who has a child who’s had this kind of a problem wants this stuff made public, because they want to know if the people making these decisions do have a conflict of interest. We go to the doctors and we get these shots for our kids, and we do it believing that the health agencies are above reproach, that there’s no danger to our children, or at least it’s minimal. And we put great confidence in CDC and FDA and all of our health agencies. And if we find out after the fact that our child has had a terrible, serious problem, and then we find out after the fact that people on that advisory committee that made those decisions did have a conflict of interest, it will weigh on us very heavily, because we’ll wonder, always wonder, if that conflict of interest led to the problem that we have in our family. And that’s why the people on these advisory committees need to be above reproach. They need to be above reproach. If they have a conflict of interest, if they’re a paid consultant for a company that has an interest in that product, if they have a large amount of stock in that company, and they’re going to benefit from that product, or if they have some other reason to be tied to that company, they’re getting grants from that company for scientific research, whatever it might be, they should not be on those advisory committees. And if they are, it should be made known at the outset so that people can make a decision based upon information, total information. And I just think it’s wrong. You may shade this one way or the other, based upon what you feel is being with the Department of Ethics in this country. But if that’s the way it is right now, I think the law should be reviewed and changed. There’s got to be people out there that can serve on these advisory panels that don’t have conflicts, who may have their judgment skewed in one direction or another. And there’s got to be people out there that are going to make decisions based upon what’s best for the people of this country and the kids of this country without any bias whatsoever. And that’s what the American people, I believe, want.

also see this website that digs in deeper concerning the conflicts of interest for specific studies. Most of these studies were blasted across the media to show that there is no connection between vaccines and autism. Every one of them has huge flaws and were written or funded by people who gain financial profit from vaccines – http://www.14studies.com/

 This is just the first step in understanding how some one could possibly question vaccines. Once you get past the feelings that the government and medical establishment would never do anything to hurt you and realize that there have been times when we have been lied to..it becomes easier to approach this whole issue with a more balanced perspective.
