Vaccines Are Harming Our Children—Admit It, Fix It

There is no incentive or penalty for vaccine manufacturers when their product injures or kills a child

Insanity has been defined as doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

How long are the medical profession and our government going to defend the safety of the current vaccine schedule? A year from now, will we be embroiled in the same fight? Two years from now? Five? Ten?

The U.S. is the most vaccinated country in the world. And yet, we are number 31 in infant mortality. Time and money are being wasted. Our kids are sick. They are suffering. For far too many, their childhoods are lost. Their families are suffering. Parents are divorced, financially destitute, exhausted, and heartbroken. They are out of time.

DO SOMETHING!

My last article was for parents and included advice for ways they could help their children with autism. This article is for the medical profession and government and anyone else who is has a financial investment in vaccines. True, they are a powerful and wealthy force. Power and wealth are their motivation. But greed can’t compete with parents’ motivation. The stakes just don’t get any higher than our children.

That being said, here are my pleas to “the other side.”

Medical Profession

For doctors who are helping parents recover their children, thank you is pretty inadequate. Please continue helping them. Keep sharing your stories of recovery with other doctors.

For doctors who are on the other side of the fence or perhaps on the fence, listen to your peers’ success stories. Stop blindly accepting what you read in professional journals. Question it. Ask yourself if it makes sense. For example, do you think a Merck consultant who writes an article published in a “scientific” journal telling you how to deal with the “anti-vaccinationists’ galaxy” is unbiased?

Listen to parents. Open your minds, and hear their stories. They are the most reliable source of information out there. They will tell you what vaccines did to their children and what they are doing to recover them.

Really think about recovery. Ask yourself what could possibly explain why some children with autism are getting better. Could it be because the biomedical therapies are detoxifying them? To quote Merriam-Webster (my favorite dictionary), detoxify means:

a : to remove a harmful substance (as a poison or toxin) or the effect of such from

b : to render (a harmful substance) harmless

If you use treatments to remove toxins from the body (such as those contained in vaccines), and the treatments work, could it be because the toxins were removed? Most children who are recovering are doing so because their bodies and minds are both being treated. As their physical health improves, many of them are regaining communication social, and skills of daily living they once had but lost after a vaccine.

But how do you doctors explain recovery? You say the child never had autism in the first place. The same doctors who originally said that the child had autism all long and nobody, including you, noticed it. You, with all your years of medical school and experience, didn’t see autism when it was staring you in the face. Perhaps you might want to consider another occupation.

Stop the guilt trip for parents who won’t vaccinate their children or want them vaccinated on an alternate schedule. Stop throwing them out of your practice.

Stop ignoring the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 that requires you to report serious health problems, hospitalizations, and deaths after vaccines to VAERS. It has been estimated that less than 10 percent of doctors follow that law. Every year, 30,000 adverse events are reported, making the real number more like 300,000. [1] It’s a federal law. Stop breaking it.

Stop accepting “incentives” from the CDC. You know. Things like an awards dinner at the annual AAP meeting, write-ups in a state or local newsletter, plaques for “the most improved practices,” office luncheons, and free registration at an immunization conference. The CDC’s AFIX program [2] even offers you the eXchange where you, as an “immunization champion,” can help other doctors improve their immunization rates. Not to mention “Suggestions to Improve Your Immunization Service,” which includes statements like this one:

If no immunization record exists for a patient at the time of the visit and we are unable to obtain records by phone, we give the vaccinations that we THINK are indicated, based on the history provided by the patient/parent. We have the patient/ parent sign a release of records to obtain immunization records from previous providers. If no records of previous vaccinations can be located, the patient is treated as if unimmunized. [3]

With four dozen doses of vaccines given to a child by the time he is four years old, are you doctors really comfortable giving the ones you THINK are indicated? Do you have the parents sign a form releasing you from harm? Can you honestly say this is safe? Would you do this to your own child?

Government

FDA. CDC. NIH. Congress. … You have even more power than the medical profession to stop the insanity. You set the standards. You make the laws.

Stop wasting time and money looking at genes and flame retardant in pajamas and proximity to a freeway and the father’s age and the amount of weight the mom gained when she was pregnant and the baby’s exposure to household cleaners and dust while in the womb and—the newest one—the mom who had a fever when she was pregnant.

If you want to study something, how about vaccinated vs. unvaccinated children? Or the safety (or lack thereof) of the individual ingredients in vaccines? The safety (or lack thereof) of the combination of ingredients? The safety (or lack thereof) of giving multiple vaccines at the same time?

And how about studying children who have recovered through biomedical, behavioral, and other treatments? There are thousands and thousands. While you’re at it, encourage legislation that mandates insurance coverage for these treatments. They are working. Our children deserve help, and you owe it to them and their families.

Stop allowing and encouraging the production of more vaccines and larger combination vaccines. Their safety—or their effectiveness and necessity—have not been proven. The studies haven’t been done. Do them.

Stop trying to take away vaccine exemptions. Dr. Mercola sums it up well:

It is a well-documented fact that the pharmaceutical industry has more lobbyists on Capitol Hill and in state legislatures than almost any other industry. They know how to leverage their resources by donating money to politicians, who will vote for legislation that give them an unfair advantage in the marketplace. Such legislation favoring pharmaceutical companies is typically implemented through enactment of regulatory laws that are carried out by federal regulatory and policymaking agencies like the FDA and the CDC. [4]

Stop ignoring your responsibility. And that is to protect our children and stand up for them. That’s what you get paid for. Parents are doing the best they can, but they need help. Do your job.

THE TRUTH IS …

Autism is rising. As long as the vaccine schedule remains the same (or more vaccine are added), this trend will continue. And it will continue until someone with the power to make a change takes a long, hard look at the dozens of vaccines and says, “There’s something wrong here. This can’t be safe.” If the current rate of autism (1 in 88, the CDC’s figure based on children who are now 12 years old) isn’t a national healthcare crisis—and disaster—I don’t know what is. What’s happening to our children is deplorable and unconscionable. It’s criminal.

To both the medical profession and our government: Admit that vaccines can and do cause autism. You are responsible. Admit it, and fix it.
