| The Risks Of Vaccines Currently
Outweigh Any Benefits To Human Health
beings have been exposed to vaccines for more than two centuries.
Some vaccines have been more beneficial than others, however their
underlying purpose was supposed to be very simple...to prevent
disease. Yet the pathway to effective vaccines has been neither
neat nor direct. Unfortunately, our current vaccination model
has little to do with the prevention of disease, something the
public is catching on to.
A vaccine tricks the bodys immune system into producing
antibodies to fight a form of the virus that is not harmful. Then,
if the person ever encounters the real and dangerous virus, the
body is ready to prevent it from harming any cells.
has been recognized for centuries that some diseases never reinfect
a person after recovery. Smallpox was the first disease people
tried to prevent by intentionally inoculating themselves with
infected matter. The British Medical Journal says, "vaccines
used against infectious disease have probably saved more lives
than any other public health intervention apart form the provision
of clean water." They state that "without vaccination, smallpox
would not have been eliminated from the world-or at least smallpox
is its wild state."
Lack of immunity to disease has helped to decide the
fate of entire communities, from smallpox among the Indians
in the New World to syphilitic soldiers in the Old. Most people
have some amount of natural immunity. The human body can take
care of itself in many circumstancescuts, colds, and minor
infections disappear without major upheaval. In other cases,
the body has little or no naturally occurring immunity, so if
you are exposed to diseases such as polio, influenza, smallpox,
hepatitis, diphtheria, measles, or whooping cough, you will
probably get sick with it, unless you have somehow been exposed
to these diseases before and survived.
refers to the artificial creation of immunity by deliberately
infecting someone so that the body learns to protect itself.
The acting of immuzing through vaccines is highly controversial
because the direct injection of foreign proteins and other toxic
material (particularly known immune-sensitising poisons such
as mercury and other preservatives) may make the recipient more,
not less affected by what he/she encounters in the future. This
means that in some populations, they may do the opposite of
immunize, commonly even preventing immunity from developing
after natural exposure.
An important part of the history of immunization has been determining
how to get the immunizing agent into the body. The skin, which
keeps germs and mischievous substances out, is also a barrier
to getting medicines and vaccines into the tissue where they
can work. Physicians have used varying methods to create immunity
where there is none.
The concept of immunization received its first big boost in
1796, when physician Edward Jenner inoculated a young boy in
England and successfully prevented him from getting smallpox.
Jenner used a lancet to scratch some infected material from
a woman with cowpox (similar to smallpox) under the boys
Jenners initial experiments were carried out in a pregerm
theory era that lacked modern methods of quality control and
sterilization. Hence, the prospect of contamination constantly
loomed over smallpox vaccine development, and many people were
rightly wary of contracting another dread disease via inoculation.
With a method that often involved extracting lymph from pustules
on the arms of those recently vaccinated, it was not uncommon
for existing microorganisms to accompany the vaccine from arm
to arm, spreading diseases such as erysipelas, syphilis, and
drugs, which are essentially chemical agents, vaccines are biologic
agents that can be compromised during processing. Whether killed-virus,
whole-cell, bacterial, or live-attenuated, vaccines can be disrupted
at various points along the journey from the laboratory to the
vial. Not surprisingly, quality control, sterilization, and
monitoring have become non-negotiable for vaccine production.
Even with strict standards, however, the possibility of contamination
remains (even though it is far less likely today than several
decades ago). In addition, vaccine production must be closely
supervised to ensure that vaccines induce immunity and do not
produce serious infection. For example, the optimism about the
polio vaccine in spring 1955 was temporarily muted after 200
children contracted disease (fatal for five children) from a
vaccine containing active wild-type polio virus that was manufactured
by Cutter Laboratories in California.
Today, the biggest controversies regarding vaccines have everything
to do with vaccine componenets and little to do with the vaccines
themselves. For example thimerosal, an organic mercury compound
preservative added to some vaccines has been linked to a plethora
of neurological disorders such as autism,
especially in children. The rates of autism have exploded to
more than 1 in 150 in recent years.
Documents from the archives of Eli Lilly and Co., the original
manufacturer of thimerosal, clearly demonstrates that the mercury-based
vaccine preservative, implicated in a number of recent lawsuits
as causing neurological injury to infants, was known as early
as April 1930 to be dangerous.
In its apparent
eagerness to promote and market the product, in September 1930,
Eli Lilly secretly sponsored a "human toxicity" study on patients
already known to be dying of meningococcal meningitis. Andrew
Waters of the Dallas-based law firm of Waters & Kraus stated
that, "Lilly then cited this study repeatedly for decades as
proof that thimerosal was of low toxicity and harmless to humans.
They never revealed to the scientific community or the public
the highly questionable nature of the original research."
were conducted in 1929 by a young researcher named K.C. Smithburn
who injected 22 human subjects who were already dying with a
1 percent solution and then pronounced that all the patients
were reported without ill effect.
all died was never mentioned. "It's apparent that Lilly didn't
want to do the study themselves because it's apparent that there
were enormous ethical problems with injecting people -- even
people dying of meningitis -- with mercury," Waters said. "What
Smithburn did was wrong, because he agreed to do the study for
Lilly, and not only did he agree to do it, but he agreed to
give them results that he knew were flawed."
are no words that can be used to describe what Eli Lilly and
Co., and then other pharmaceutical companies perpetuated through
decades of use of a highly toxic compound like thimerosal. And
there is no ethical explanation for current and former administrations
that have either tried or succeeded in providing protection
to Lilly and other pharmaceutical companies from lawsuits for
damages done to children from the use of their products.
at the Department of Physiology and Biophysics, Faculty of Medicine,
at the University of Calgary also show how mercury causes brain
neuron degeneration and provide important direct evidence on
how low levels of mercury
exposure can initiate neurodegenerative processes in the
brain. In a graphic visual presentation they
show how mercury ions denuded nurofibrils and how mercury prevents
tubulin molecules from linking together.
It was finally
recognized in 1999 that the long half-life of ethlymercury could
theoretically result in accumulation and toxicity during chronic
applications and as such joint statements by the American Academy
of Pediatricians and the United States Public Health Services
recommended the removal of thimerosal from all vaccines.
in mind, it is shocking that we still find the CDC adding a
thimerosal-containing vaccine into the childhood immunization
schedule and amazing to learn that officials have not led a
movement in the third world to diminish or eliminate thimerosal
from the millions born each year there. American officials seem
to care not for what happens to children around the world as
they "go through the motions" of removing some, but not all
of the thimerosal from clinics.
have not faced the truth, will not admit their error, and even
years after the above 1999 recommendations, we still have the
CDC, the IOM and several important health officials denying
that there is any problem with using mercury in vaccines.
with the three now scheduled flu vaccines to be administered
before two years of age, some children will be receiving between
37-75 mg of thimerosal, depending on how the shots are administered
(doctors are allowed some flexibility to give half doses to
kids under two years of age).
their own statements in 1999, the medical authorities are actually
reintroducing thimerosal into the childhood immunization schedule,
even as they brag about taking it out.
It is very
important to note that though the U.S. authorities are diminishing
the mercury content of vaccines at home it does not change the
picture of the global thimerosal nightmare where
most children are still receiving high pre-2001 level doses.
Dr. Boyd Haley, a world-renowned expert on the toxicity of mercury
said, "I am ashamed that our country is misleading other parts
of the world with regards to the thimerosal issue."
In the United
States, the Food and Drug Administration investigated thimerosal
and concluded that the risk to a baby receiving vaccines was
low, however the agency recommended that thimerosal be taken
out of childhood vaccines.
In Canada, there are small amounts of thimerosal in both the
diphtheria -polio-tetanus (DPT) and the hepatitis B shot. Some
scientists assert that the preservative is metabolized as ethyl
mercury, which is less dangerous than methyl mercury, and is
expelled from the body.
new concerns have arisen regarding the safety and cost-effectiveness
of multi-dose vaccine vials. And, even in vaccines that are
certified thimerosal-free, this mercury-based compound is still
used in the manufacturing process and, as such, traces of it
remain. Mercury is dangerous even at concentrations much lower
than is found in vaccines, yet as we see again and again, health
officials at all the major health organizations around the world
repeat that the risk is very small and parents should not be
of thimerosal, even if complete, will not solve the problem
of autism. It will help tremendously, but will not stop the
epidemic of autism. Though mercury, even in sub toxic doses
has been shown to strongly activate microglia causing the secretion
of two powerful excitotoxins, glutamate and quinolinic acid,
in concentrations that are neurotoxic. Aluminum has a similar
mode of action, though less potent. When combined with mercury,
there is at least additive toxicity if not synergestic toxicity.
-- Dr. Russell Blaylock
Ellis agrees with Blaylock: "Autism is upon us because it's
the outcome of the 50-year experiment of dousing every living
being with an overload of toxic substances, including vaccines."
Speaking of her autistic patients, Dr Stephanie Cave said, "You
would be amazed at the devastation in their chemistries when
you get down to the cellular level." She also said, "I think
in later years we are going to look back at aluminum the way
we are looking at mercury now."
be noted that since thimerosal is not the only hazardous substance
added to vaccines we are not being assured of anything if merely
one component is removed, which it has not, even after all the
major medical organizations "recommended" its removal in 1999.
salts are used as vaccine adjuvants based on their ability to
improve dendritic cell response to presented antigens. The aluminum
concentration of vaccines varies from 0.125 to 0.85 mg/dose,
which would produce concentrations of approximately 0.7 to 4.5
uM, if uniformly distributed in the body water of a seven kg
infant," reported Dr. M. Waly at Northeastern University, who
found, at these low concentrations, cellular problems are created
independently and in combination with mercury.
Haley reported from his laboratory experiments "Aluminum is
not nearly as toxic to neurons in culture as is thimerosal."
At the University of Kentucky, he did experiments to determine
if aluminum would increase the toxicity of very low levels of
thimerosal. "The results were unequivocal: The presence of aluminum
dramatically increased the rate of neuronal death caused by
thimerosal. Therefore, the aluminum and thimerosal combination
found in vaccines produces a toxic mixture that cannot be compared
to situations where thimerosal alone was the toxic exposure."
is that today, most routinely recommended pediatric vaccines
manufactured for the U.S. market still contain thimerosal, though
according to the Institute of Medicine (IOM), "only trace" amounts
remain. And, of course, this is exactly what they thought five
years ago. In 1999, Dr Neal Halsey, who heads the Hopkins Institute
for Vaccine Safety said, "My first reaction was simply disbelief,
which was the reaction of almost everybody involved in vaccines.
vaccine containers, thimerosal is listed as a mercury derivative,
a hundredth of a percent. And what I believed, and what everybody
else believed, was that it was truly a trace, a biologically
insignificant amount. My honest belief is that if the labels
had had the mercury content in micrograms, this would have been
uncovered years ago. But the fact is, no one did the calculation."
is the subject of traces and what levels of thimerosal are still
used in vaccines that the WHO had to create terminology for
clarification. Removal of thimerosal means specifically thimerosal
was used during the production process but removed at a certain
stage of production resulting in residual traces remaining.
of thimerosal means that it is still used but reduced in comparison
with the amount in the already licensed vaccines. Only thimerosal
elimination means that it is not used at any stage of production
and is thus considered thimerosal free.
researchers have done experiments with what are considered traces
and have shown thimerosal "to cause adverse effects on methylation
synthesis (MS) activity at concentrations well below the levels
produced by thimerosal containing vaccines," said Dr. Waly and
associates at Northeastern University.
"The ethylmercury-containing preservative thimerosal inhibited
both IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor-1) and dopamine-stimulated
methylation with an IC50 of 1nM and eliminated MS activity.
It should be noted that reduced IGF-1 levels have been reported
in autism, which may also contribute to impaired myelination."
Many say that the charges of the dangers of thimerosal remain
to be proven but there is overwhelming evidence:
- Basic chemistry.
- The common experiences of thousands of parents.
- Records of thousands of deaths and tens of thousands of near-fatal
incidents resulting in hospitalization recorded in federal databases.
- Several new scientific studies that show how "dead wrong"
medical authorities are on this vital medical question.
For reasons that can only be described as basic conflicts of
interest, greed, ignorance and even evil intention, one of the
most serious crimes in human history has been committed across
approximately six decades of time but got much worse in the
1990s as the number of vaccines containing thimerosal increased.
called pharmaceutical terrorism -- the fact is doctors and nurses
and governmental health officials around the world are just
too comfortable with injecting toxic chemical compounds into
the vulnerable bodies of infants. And dentists are too comfortable
putting mercury in their patients' mouths even though they are
taught and are required by federal agencies to treat amalgam
materials as toxic wastes.
guilty of betraying the public's trust, sponsoring a great harm
and attacking those who would reveal the truth behind what is
going on. It is only a matter of time before the public will
see and understand who the real charlatans are and see the criminality
in their attitudes and actions. Scientific integrity is a commitment
to truthfulness, personal accountability and vigorous adherence
to standards of professional conduct.
The Hidden Truth
is the shocking but extremely informative video documentary where
fifteen people, including Dr. Viera Scheibner (a PhD researcher),
five medical doctors, other researchers, reveal what is really
going on in relation to illness and vaccines. Ironically, the
important facts come from the orthodox medicine's own peer-reviewed
research. With so much government and medical promotion of vaccination
for prevention of disease, the video is clearly devoted to presenting
the other side of the issue that parents and others are not being
told. The result is a damning account of the ineffectiveness of
vaccines and their often harmful effects. It declares that parents
are not being told the truth by the media, the Health Department
and the medical establishment, with a medical doctor, Dr. Mark
Donohoe, confessing that "It is a problem for me that I am
part of a profession that is systematically lying to people?".
Find out how vaccines are proven to have harmful effects to your
health and why do we still have to be vaccinated although there
is no real need for it. Although many people simply refuse to
believe this, the impeccable documentation presented in this amazing
video has changed the minds of many who saw it.
Mercury Causes Brain Neuron Degeneration
The following short film produced by the University of Calgary
documents exactly what happens to brain cells when mercury comes
into contact with them. Witness under microscopic magnification
the immediate damage mercury does to the structure of brain cells.
This video demonstrates the validity and definitive dangers of
putting thimerosol into vaccines.
