Disease vs. Vaccination:
Where Does the Risk Really Lie?
In her detailed
report, Pew Singh provides detailed research on both the pro
and anti stances of vaccination. Her goal was to determine whether
the risk of disease was greater than the risk from vaccination
while living in a first world country. Simply put, which is riskier
the disease or the vaccine. You would think the answer
is pretty straight forward, but you would be surprised.
The benefit risk ratio is an important decision in anyone deciding
whether to vaccinate or not. Contrary to popular belief and marketing,
childhood diseases in a developed country are not as dangerous
as we are led to believe. Catching a particular disease does not
mean you will
die from it. Vaccines were actually introduced at a time when
diseases had already declined to a low risk level. This fact is
Plus, vaccines are known to have side effects, some of them minor
but some major and even fatal. There comes a time when the risk
of taking the vaccine is greater than the risk from the disease
itself. This probably sounds strange to you and something most
people never consider because we are told differently, but that
scenario is now playing itself out in our society.
Recent findings and court cases are showing that the adverse effects
of vaccines are real. Many have been kept under cover over the
years but some high profile cases are now bringing them to light.
More and more physicians are questioning the issues around vaccines.
The power of the pharmaceutical companies is immense and their
influence extends to all walks of life including doctors, governments
and media. The Pharmaceutical Business is the most profitable
US industry. Unfortunately in the world we live in, with money
comes power and inevitably corruption.
In the USA the Vaccine Injury Compensation System, setup in 1988
has paid out $1.8 billion so far to settle claims of vaccine induced
damage or death (HRSA statistics report June 1, 2009, awards paid).
Injury or death due to the DTP & MMR vaccines were top of
the list for the number of compensations (HRSA statistics report,
Claims Filed and Compensated or Dismissed by Vaccine May 1, 2009).
There are still thousands of claims outstanding and these figures
do not include any claims for Autism, as the link between Autism
and vaccines has supposedly not been proven.
Because vaccine manufacturers and the federal government are not
required to admit responsibility, even when a claim is paid, they
are able to assert that "the settlement of a claim does not
necessarily establish liability."
The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) admits that the 12,000
reports it receives annually on side effects from vaccines represent
only a fraction of what actually occurs. They estimate that only
about 10% of adverse reactions are reported (Reported by KM Severyn,
R.Ph.D. in the Dayton Daily News, May 28, 1993. Ohio Parents for
Vaccine Safety, 251 Ridgeway Dr., Dayton, OH 45459), a figure
supported by two NVIC investigations (National Vaccination Information
Center "Investigative Report on the Vaccine Adverse Event
In fact, the NVIC reported that in New York, only one out of about
40 doctor's offices (2.5%) confirmed that they did report a death
or injury following vaccination.
This is something that cannot be contended " vaccines do
cause harm." So, are you sacrificing your child unnecessarily?
Even though you are not told so, that is potentially what you
are doing every time you vaccinate.
The Manufacturers, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and
Governments know the dangers but the greater good is more important
to them (Herd Immunity). Children will die because of vaccines,
but that's the sacrifice you are expected to make in order to
rid our world of disease.
report essentially outlines 4 areas:
1) Shows the history of diseases from the year 1900 onwards and
the introduction of vaccines.
2) Shows how statistics are used to persuade you. For the same
event you can prove the pro view and the anti view and be correct
at the same time. It's about manipulating, excluding or being
selective with statistics. Happens all the time in our world,
from medicine to politics.
3) Showcases doctors who have been instrumental in bringing forth
the truth about childhood diseases, their risks and the risks
4) Demonstrates the importance of nutrition in building natural
immune systems for our children.
An excellent report for any parent interested in making an informed
decision about vaccinating their child.
