The discussion on vaccination heats up quickly and is sometimes interesting in how hostile it can be. What if the same debate about an antibiotic or anti-hypertensive drug is provoked, if there is evidence that the drug is harmful? When it becomes clear that a drug like Vioxx has injured thousands, it will be removed from the market. We will stop using the drug until it is proven to be safe. And we sue.
Not so with vaccines. Vaccines are enthusiastically promoted until they are statistically proven to cause harm to a large number. Thousands of people suffering from vaccine reactions are not considered to be a mathematically important statistic in proportion to the millions who have been vaccinated. However, the more than $ 1 billion paid for vaccine-injured people shows that not everything that promotes safety. Why the double standard?
Vaccination is built around a “trust system”. We believe the vaccine is safe; We believe that vaccines are important for health; Stories believe that only vaccines are responsible for eradicating smallpox and polio. And we want to make sure that our doctors have read all the information available about the vaccine – Pro and Con – and tell us the whole truth about the vaccine.
However, faith is based on faith, not truth. For example, we want to make sure our children are vaccinated to prevent measles or chickenpox. However, there is a lot of documented information that this is not necessary.
Why is there an almost desperate need to protect current beliefs – and beliefs – about vaccines? The public view of disease seems to be similar to our current view of terrorism: random attacks that can be fatal. The media hawk presents this view on pediatrics and the need for vaccinations. Pharma sells it, doctors push it, and educational institutions strengthen it. They continue to sell it because they can easily buy it without issue. There is a “right” or “better than sorry” mentality regarding vaccination and illness with children. * After nearly 200 years of use, fear still sells vaccines.
What do we really know about vaccines? A review of the literature and CDC documents reveals the following:
1. Vaccine safety studies are relatively small and include only healthy children. However, once a vaccine trial is over, all children will be vaccinated, regardless of their health status, family history or genetic makeup.
2. Vaccine safety studies are brief. Most clinical trials monitor for side effects for only 21 days, sometimes as long as 5 days. Complications of the immune system can take months. This arbitrary period prevents the vaccine from being associated with chronic health disorders, as established by the FDA. “Secure” is a position that is based on limited information.
3. Vaccine safety studies do not use real placebo.One of the golden standards in medical research is the “placebo-controlled” test. An inactive substance such as a sugar tablet is given to each participant as a placebo and the treatment team is given a new drug. The data are analyzed to compare the number of side effects given with the drug compared to the number of side effects caused by those given the drug. However, the “placebo” used for vaccine research is not a sterile substance like sterile water; It is another vaccine. Inert, sterile water does not cause a reaction; As a substitute injection. If both groups of infants have the same number of reactions in an experiment, the study reports that the vaccine is “as safe as placebo.” This is a deceptive science.
4. Not associated with vaccine-induced antibody protection. In fact, the prestigious journal Vaccine made this clear that “… in many cases, it is a known fact that antibody-specific antibodies are not associated with titer protection.” The full reference can be found at PMID: 11587808
Vaccination is recognized as safe, effective and safe. It can be called vaccine medicine “Sacred Cows” By definition, “medical procedures are not unfairly criticized.” The strongest response is to respond to a suggestion that the “cow” should be “sacrificed.” It is a myth that the status quo is wrong.
When Copernicus emphasized that the center of the solar system was the sun, not the earth, it contradicted medieval philosophical and religious beliefs. When two other Italian scientists of the time, Galileo and Bruno, embraced Copernican theory, their statements were considered insulting. In 1600 Bruno was tried before trial and condemned and burned at the stake. Thirty years later, Galileo was brought forward and, in the presence of his “Betters”, was forced to abandon his beliefs under the threat of torture and death. Even after his confession, he was sentenced to prison for the rest of his life.
To the extent that one investigates the vaccine and studies the adverse effects attributed to the vaccine, one becomes a Copernican heretic, and speaking out against the status quo can have deadly consequences. I personally have invested more than 8,000 hours to uncover the truth about vaccines. If the result of this inquiry is to be said to be superstitious, I am in a miraculous association.
