People who get vaccines for their children and themselves in accordance with the CDC's recommendations and their state's requirements for school sincerely believe they are doing what is best. They may feel a little uneasy about vaccines but they trust the government and the CDC and the vaccine companies and the information they get from mainstream media and their pediatrician. They haven't personally experienced a vaccine injury. They haven't had a child die of sudden infant death syndrome or had a child grievously injured by vaccines. Conversely, people who have experience a tragedy caused by vaccines are profoundly changed. The trust mentioned above is shattered. They see life differently. They don't believe everything they are told about the safety of vaccines. They start to read books which question vaccine safety and do other research that they would never have considered before. They have awakened to a new reality that things are not always as they seem. And they develop a strong desire to warn others of the dangers of vaccines. Most of us suspect that we are being skillfully deceived in various ways. Vaccine safety is one of those ways. The rest of this article is a warning.
People who haven't personally experienced a vaccine related tragedy may find it difficult to believe that vaccine policy in the United Stated has been captured and corrupted by the powerful pharmaceutical companies that produce vaccines. These giant corporations have one main focus: profits. Think of them as evil or the dark side and you will be close to reality. This is causing countless ruined lives. Because of the single minded focus on profits there are too many vaccines which contain very toxic ingredients and many vaccines are given too early. Excessive vaccine policies are fueled by greed and built on a foundation of lies. We now have more vaccines than any other country and we have the highest infant mortality rate of all developed countries. This is an indisputable fact. By any measure our children who do survive infancy are the sickest generation in modern times. Congressional subcommittees have found the CDC to be hopelessly corrupt and riddled with conflicts of interest. The vaccine policies they establish and promote are entirely for the financial benefit of vaccine companies. The well-being of children is given lip service but is not a priority.
The public relations machine that keeps these vaccine policies rolling and expanding has deep pockets and is very effective. One aspect of this is near complete control of how these issues are presented in mainstream media. They have been able to get many people to believe obvious lies for decades. Here are a few of these lies with my comments in parenthesis: (1) Vaccines don't cause sudden infant death syndrome. (Consider this: The SIDS rate dropped like a rock in Japan when they postponed all vaccines until age two.) (2) Vaccines don't cause autism. (This is the biggest and most crucial lie for the vaccine industry. Imagine what will happen to vaccine profits when the public starts to realize that vaccines do cause autism. The drastic increase of autism exactly parallels the increase in vaccines starting in the late 1980s. Scores of independent scientific studies implicate vaccines as the main cause of autism.) (3) The mercury preservative thimerosal in vaccines is not a problem. (Literally hundreds of ignored scientific studies show that thimerosal is a powerful neurotoxin which causes brain damage and serious neurological problems including seizures, learning disabilities, and autism). (4) Serious vaccine injuries are rare. (One in 50 children born in the U.S. these days will be diagnosed with autism. Vaccines can also cause asthma, life-threatening allergies, autoimmune disorders, type I diabetes, hyperactivity, chronic ear aches, and more. Would you characterize all this as rare?). (5) Hundreds of deaths and serious injuries in teen girls following HPV vaccines are all a coincidence. (This is very convenient for the vaccine industry but is ridiculously unlikely). (5) Autism is a genetic condition and there is no such thing as regressive autism. (Tens of thousands of parents have described their child's regression into autism following a round of vaccines.)
Passionate pro-vaccine people will not read this. If they did start reading they would be gone before they finished the first paragraph. They have been deceived by the vaccine companies public relations machine and they believe all of the lies mentioned above. No amount of facts and logic and science will change their minds. Our target audience should be people who suspect that something is wrong and who have not completely swallowed the pro-vaccine propaganda. One sign of intelligence is learning from others mistakes and heeding legitimate warnings. People who have vaccine injured children would give anything to travel back in time and avoid the vaccines that damaged their child. They wish they knew then what they know now about the dangers of vaccines.
There is nothing so powerful as an idea whose time has come. “Vaccine policy needs to be ripped out of the greedy and corrupt hands of the CDC and placed with an independent agency” is an idea that I hope will achieve critical mass soon. The facts and science and logic of ageofautism.com and other vaccine safety advocates need to be shared as widely and relentlessly as possible on all social media. If we offend some people and even lose a few friends, so be it. The message that vaccines are causing great harm is too important not to share. You may never know when information you share prevents a sudden infant death or a serious vaccine injury.
What happens to children who get zero vaccines or whose parents select only a few of the 16 recommended vaccines? Do they die like flies from vaccine preventable diseases? The vaccine industry wants everyone to believe that the answer is yes but the answer is actually no. Witness the Amish children who are not vaccinated and home schooled children who are not vaccinated. Both these groups are quite healthy. The few studies in other countries which have compared fully vaccinated children to unvaccinated children show that the unvaccinated children are far healthier. More studies like these need to be done but the CDC refuses to do them because they know that the results would be very bad for the vaccine industry.
Forced vaccination laws are plainly wrong. Vaccines can cause death and serious injuries and parents must have the final say. Vaccine industry money has recently managed to cram a forced vaccination law through the California legislature and the governor has signed it. Now the constitutional challenges start. This has awakened an army of sleeping giants(vaccine safety advocates) and filled them with a terrible resolve. I believe that the tide is starting to turn. Truth will win out. We can stop the carnage of excessive vaccines. We can get the useless yet dangerous vaccines eliminated from the vaccine schedule. We can get thimerosal and other toxic vaccine ingredients out. We can get independent safety studies established. We can expose the greed and corruption that permeates the CDC. We can reveal for all to see the fraudulent scientific studies used to support vaccine policies. This is a noble cause. Heartfelt thanks to the people who are leading this fight. You are greatly admired and respected by those who have awakened and see what is happening. Everyone who understands this issue must continue to spread the truth with great energy and never give up.
