I won’t give you a declarative answer to the question…but I will provide you with some information so that you can make an informed decision…I certainly know what I would do.

1) There have been several measles outbreaks in vaccinated children that don’t get any public acknowledgment, for example:Dr Holly needles

– 98% of the kids with the measles had vaccinations:  http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1646939/

– 100% of the kids with the measle outbreak had been vaccinated: http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/00000359.htm

–  6500 people were infected with the mumps in 2006 – and the majority were college students who had received the two doses of MMR (Dr Mercola:  Kids given Vaccines have 22 times the Rate of Ear Infections)

2) the IOM (Institute of Medicine) which is a part of the NAoS (National Academy of Sciences) analyzes data and gives recomendations to the government.  Their latest report came out in August of 2011 – over a period of 3 years they reviewed over 1000 studies on vaccines but EXCLUDED studies funded by Big Pharma.  They examined two types of studies:  epidemiological (comparing large groups of people) and Bench science (exploring the biological mechanisms with the tissues, cells and molecules).  They focused on 8 types of vaccines:

  • 1) Measles, mumps, rubella (MMR)
  • 2) Hepatitis A&B
  • 3) Meningococcal (Meningitis)
  • 4) Diphtheria/tetanus/acellular pertussis (Whooping cough)
  • 5) Varicella zoster (Chicken pox)
  • 6) HPV (Human Papilloma virus)
  • 7) Influenza
  • 8) Pneumococcal vaccine (streptococcus)

Now look at the problems with the study:

1) they identified over 100 different negative health outcomes including:

  • Autism
  • Encephalitis
  • Encephalopathy (involving permanent brain damage)
  • Lupus
  • MS
  • Rheumatoid arthritis

2) but they couldn’t identify whether the vaccines were the cause!  Why?

  • the studies were not available in published literature
  • there were two few studies showing the same link
  • the available studies had poor methodological protocol
  • the studies showed contradictory results

The challenge with all of this according to Barbara Loe Fisher (co-founder & president of the NVIC (National Vaccine Information Center ) is “What I cal this category is the “We Don’t Know” category.  When you think about it, these vaccines are mandated for children, and yet in most instances the scientific evidence

[of safety] is so poor, they don’t know!  When the report came out there were a lot of organizations like the American Academy of Pediatrics that came forth and said ‘They didn’t find causation…So vaccines are safe.’ That’s NOT what that report said at all.  I think people need to understand the significance of it…[T]he category of ‘We Don’t Know’ is a very important category…”  http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/11/01/more-parents-waking-up-to-vaccine-dangers.aspx

3) large studies comparing the outcome of vaccinated vs non vaccinatd children have not been done

they claim it would be unethical to do a study and leave children non-vaccinated but over 13% in the US refuse to have their children vaccinated – so the group is there

further, a report was released in 2010 by the VaccinInjury.info comparing the health of vaccinated children with those not vaccinated AND to date over 7850 surveys have been submitted and to date the following information has been collected…now note, this is not a double blind cross over study – it is dependent on the individuals willing to submit the data

Health Condition Prevalence in Vaccinated Children Prevalence in Unvaccinated Children
Allergies 40% report at least one allergy Less than 10%
Asthma 6% 2.5%
Hay fever 10.7% of German children 2.5%
Neurodermatitis (an autoimmune disorder) 13% of German children 7%
ADHD 8% of German children, and another nearly 6% with borderline cases 1-2%
Middle ear infections 11% of German children Less than 0.5%
Sinusitis Over 32% of German children Less than 1%
Autism Approximately 1 in 100 Only 4 cases out of 7,800+ surveys (one child tested very high for metals, and another’s mother tested very high for mercury)

from Dr Mercola:

4) from another perspective, most women who take their children to alternative health, ie., Dr of Natural Medicine, Naturopath, Herbalist, Homeopathic, Ayurvedic, TCM, etc are women who have a higher education AND likewise the majority of women who refuse vaccinations for their children are again women with higher education….hmmmm

  • – is that because they have a greater capacity to study and research the real evidence and come to their conclusions
  • – is that because they have more confidence in themselves and are willing to stand up against the MD for the benefit of the their children

5) from another perspective, children with a healthy gut flora have fewer vaccine complications but are also better capable of warding off an infection – so wouldn’t it be smarter to focus on healthy diets? good microbiota foods? etc

6) from another perspective, those pushing vaccinations focus on the “herd immunity”,i.e., multiple doses of a vaccine to create and maintain the herd immunity, but:

  • – vaccines are never 100% effective
  • – majority of outbreaks seem to occur in areas believed to have herd immunity status
  • – why? naturally evolved herd immunity is NOT the same as vaccine induced herd immunity
  • – further, natural exposure to disease would give you a longer lasting, more robust, qualitatively superior immunity because it gives you both cell mediated immunity and humoral immunity. Barbara claimed…what this means is that you have developed your own anti-bodies (the humoral component) but VACCINES DO NOT deal with cell mediated immunity – one of the many problems with vaccines

7) from another perspective : your body does not respond to a “dead” or “attenuated” virus the same as it does to dealing with the real live virus

8) from another perspective: what if the vaccine is infected like the polio vaccine was – they knew it but didn’t stop it and it caused a huge amount of problems

9) from another perspective: what about the toxicity of the vaccines, i.e., mercury (which is still used) and aluminum (the levels in infant vaccines are higher than what is recognized as toxic for an adult!!)

– Dr Seneff explored the effects of heavy metal toxicities and various disorders and recognizes that thimerosal is in effect a “designer” mercury compound that is the most toxic nonradioactive metal; is used in more than half of the flu shots in pregnant women and young children – most toxic than lead in a fetus  http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2014/05/08/heavy-metals-glyphosate-health-effects.aspx

NOTE: the glyphosphates from RoundUp that is spread on our grains – attaches to aluminum works synergistically with aluminum making the aluminum even more toxic

– Mike Adams (Natural News tested flu vaccines for heavy metals and found that they 25000 times higher mercury level than what the EPA limits in water  http://www.naturalnews.com/045418_flu_shots_influenza_vaccines_mercury.html

– a good article on aluminum and vaccines is Dr Sears:  http://www.askdrsears.com/topics/health-concerns/vaccines/vaccine-faqs

10) from another perspective, the child’s immune system takes 3 years to develop – and yet it is getting shot after shot – with metal toxicities, etc…how does impact on the brain, the physiological development, etc – and what about the compounding effect…

11) one of the problems with fetuses, is that they get all the toxins their mother ingests…we are setting them up to fight a losing battle

12) let’s not forget, the Germ Theory, still has never been proven, despite the fact that it is the foundation of conventional medicine….a pathogen needs to have the right environment in order to thrive and reproduce…eat healthy, ingest organic, non-GMO whole foods and allow your body to thrive

So the question is…what are you going to do with the data….

There are alot more issues and tons of research…be wise, think, read and learn, before you make a decision.

Dr Mercola set up a vaccines.mercola.com page that you might want to reveiw.

Here’s to your health!
