Most doctors are happy to administer whatever vaccine producers claim is safe but are reluctant to discuss the fact that these for-profit vaccine manufacturers are legally protected from lawsuit should their products prove to be harmful or deadly. They can pump out anything they want with no financial risk at all. I can think of no other for-profit business that is absolved of all legal liability for the safety or effectiveness of their products.
Mainstream medical professionals offer no proven explanations of why autism rates have risen to 1 in 50 except to say those outrageously high numbers can easily be explained away solely by differences in reporting methodology. Additionally, serious ADD issues, acute allergies and asthma rates have all substantially increased in kids in the past 30 years, according to Center For Disease Control and The American Lung Association, with no reasonable explanations from medical professionals Maybe we need unbiased scientific studies?
In 2011 a study was published in the peer reviewed journal, Human & Experimental Toxicology, exposing the alarming relationship between vaccinating and infant mortality. Of the 34 countries studied, the United States ranked 34th (worst) in infant mortality and topped the list for the most vaccines administered under one year of age. The countries of the world that vaccinated least had the lowest infant mortality and the countries that vaccinated the most had higher rates.
Many Adverse Events Not Reported Or Tracked: One of the great dangers of the current pro-vaccine mentality is the fact that negative vaccine reactions are very rarely reported to the adverse event reporting system, a system rife with problems. When a vaccine is released onto the market, post-marketing surveillance is supposed to track any negative reactions from the millions of people taking the newly released vaccine. However, not only is the adverse reporting system entirely voluntary, 90 to 99 percent of all adverse reactions are never reported, according to David Kessler, head of the FDA for most of the 1990s. And no oversight of any kind ensures that reports made directly to the pharmaceutical companies are then forwarded to the FDA--the process is run entirely by the "honor system."
To aid vaccine makers, Congress removed legal liability from them for damage done by unwanted vaccine side-effects. This occurred after the manufacturers testified the financial impact from injury awards stemming primarily from the DPT triple vaccine (diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus) had threatened their existence. However, because the possibility of severe harm or death resulting from vaccines was so obvious, in 1988 Congress set up an alternate system for vaccine victims to receive compensation. It is commonly known as the Vaccine Court. To date the Vaccine Court has awarded over 2.5 billion dollars to victims of serious vaccine side effects. However, it's a no-fault system. So even when evidence proves someone was damaged from a tainted vaccine or one that performed as designed, the vaccine makers pay nothing. It's ironic to note that the vast majority of vaccine injury awards in the Vaccine Court have, so far, been for children suffering DPT vaccine brain injuries and deaths.
There is a huge volume of evidence proving that side effects from vaccines are far more serious and common than the vaccine manufacturers admit. Since the manufacturers downplay the truth, there is almost no way for most doctors to find accurate data. It's well documented that Big-Pharma provides high dollar grants, typically in the tens of millions per year, per school, for most major medical schools in the US. Doctors are indoctrinated during their years in school with no way of knowing who is controlling the facts they are coerced into memorizing. Only 4 out of 158 US medical schools ban drug company reps from their campuses.
To more thoroughly understand vaccine consequences and effectiveness I strongly would recommend the three resources offered at the end of this article.
Natural Ways To Safely Enhance Immunity
Western medicine operates under the assumption that synthetic, genetically engineered drugs and vaccines heal the sick and protect the young from disease, an assumption that parents are expected to accept without question. But when it comes to your child, you are the expert most qualified to decide what is best for your child, using your intelligence and common sense in the same way we fight for our right for real food.
The Importance Of Breast Milk In Protecting The Newborn From Infection Is Now Recognized Worldwide. It's the single best thing any mother can do to enhance her baby's immune system Specific and nonspecific factors are transferred to the newborn through breast milk and colostrum. The most important role for breast milk in host defense against infection appears to be the supply of local protective factors to the infant’s gastrointestinal tract.
In the US, back in the 1950s, many misguided doctors regularly recommended feeding infants laboratory prepared, store bought formulas because it was thought to be more “ hygienic and scientific” than breast feeding. However, lab created imitation formulas do nothing to enhance immune system strength. Fortunately, the American Academy of Pediatrics now recommends breastfeeding for the first 12 months of life.
Avoiding Injections: In 1995, the New England Journal of Medicine published a study showing that children who received a single injection (from another vaccine for instance) within one month after receiving a polio vaccine were 8 times more likely to contract polio than children who received no injections. The risk jumped 27-fold when children received up to nine injections within one month after receiving the polio vaccine. And with ten or more injections, the likelihood of developing polio was 182 times greater than expected. Why injections increase the risk of polio is unclear. Nevertheless, studies indicate that “injections must be avoided in countries with endemic poliomyelitis.”
Nutritional Deficiencies: A poor diet has also been shown to increase susceptibility to many diseases, including polio. In 1948, during the height of the polio epidemics, Dr. Benjamin Sandler, a nutritional expert at the Oteen Veterans’ Hospital in Ashville, North Carolina, documented a relationship between polio and an excessive use of sugars and starches. He compiled records showing that countries with the highest per capita consumption of sugar, such as the United States, Britain, Australia, Canada, and Sweden (with over 100 pounds per person per year) had the greatest incidence of polio. In contrast, polio was practically unheard of in China (with its sugar use of only 3 pounds per person per year)
Dr. Sandler observed that children consume greater amounts of ice cream, soft drinks, and artificially sweetened products in hot weather. In 1949, before the polio season began, he warned the residents of North Carolina, through the newspapers and radio, to decrease their consumption of these products. That summer, North Carolinians reduced their intake of sugar by 90 percent and polio decreased by the same amount. The North Carolina State Health Department reported 2,498 cases of polio in 1948, and 229 cases in 1949 (data taken from North Carolina State Health Department figures).
One manufacturer shipped one million less gallons of ice cream during the first week alone following the publication of Dr. Sandler’s anti-polio diet. Soft drink sales were down as well. But the powerful Rockefeller Milk Trust, which sold frozen products to North Carolinians, combined forces with soft drink business leaders and ran a PR campaign to convince the people that Sandler’s findings were a myth and the polio figures a fluke. By the summer of 1950 sales of high sugar products were back to previous levels and polio cases returned to “normal.”
Cause and Effect or A Casual Correlation? I cannot say for sure. But certainly Dr. Sandler's observations combined with the North Carolina health data from 1949 and 1950 create a powerful theory that should absolutely be investigated further.
If You Feel You Must Vaccinate, The Weston A. Price Foundation Recommends You Take The Following Precautions:
Wait until the child is at least 2 years old.
• Do not give more than one vaccination at a time.
• Never vaccinate when the child is sick.
• Be sure that the vaccines are thimerosal-free.
• Supplement the child with extra cod liver oil, vitamin C and B12 before each shot.
• Obtain a medical exemption if the child has had a bad reaction to a vaccination before or if there is a personal or family history of vaccine reactions, convulsions or neurological disorders, severe allergies and/or immune system disorders.
I would also suggest supplementing with the amino acid glutathione several days before and after vaccines are administered. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that can help the liver clear toxins.
Opting Out: The Choice Is Yours....For Now. As of 2011, all 50 states have enacted vaccine laws that require proof children have received certain vaccines in order to attend daycare, middle school, high school and college.
However, in most states citizens currently have the legal right to opt out of using vaccines.
All 50 states allow a medical exemption to vaccination (medical exemptions must be approved by an M.D. or D.O.); 48 states allow a religious exemption to vaccination; and 18 states allow a personal, philosophical or conscientious belief exemption to vaccination.
However, also be aware that vaccine exemptions are currently under attack in every state because the wealthy and powerful Big-Pharma/Medical Industry lobby is trying to take them away, especially the religious and philosophical or conscientious belief exemptions.
All Americans need to know options for legally opting-out of vaccinations, but also need to know why it's so important to protect this legal option, whether or not you choose to use every government recommended vaccine for yourself and your children.
In the US, whenever reports come out about a few cases of whooping cough, measles or other diseases, why is it seldom definitively reported whether or not the affected kids had been vaccinated? That information could be very helpful but it doesn't seem that public health officials want us to have it.
A New Term To Hide the Truth: Rather than share straight talk about whether or not a sick kid has been vaccinated, health officials now often use the term, unknown status. I don't accept that as a good-faith effort to find the truth. My family was once the target of a health department vaccination investigation and I can tell you with certainty, that when health officials really want to know vaccination status, they find out, quickly and definitely.
Vaccine makers already have 95% of the the market sewn up. If they did scientific safety and effectiveness studies with the hopes of capturing the last 5%, and those studies ended up proving that vaccines were ineffective or unsafe, it would be devastating to their bottom line. Unfortunately, that's why we'll never see truly scientific studies. Vaccine makers don't want them US. government oversight agencies have made it their policy to blindly accept everything Big-Pharma claims to be true about vaccine safety and effectiveness.

Before you choose whether or not to vaccinate yourself or your child, a mature, thinking person should do a logical, benefit to risk assessment . What are the proven, likely or possible benefits of vaccination? Now compare that list to the proven, likely or possible side effects.
Most medical doctors are not equipped to help you much here. You will need to educate yourself. The NVIC and the following two books can provide a thought provoking counterpoint to the predictable mainstream medical information your doctor will invariably provide. For part one click below.
