“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of The New England Journal of Medicine.” -Marcia Angell, MD (“Drug Companies and Doctors: A story of Corruption.” NY Review of Books, Jan. 15, 2009.)
The world tolerates climate change deniers (even when they’re well funded by oil companies).
We’re allowed pro-life, as a response to pro-choice.
People who are hundreds of pounds over weight are still allowed to eat at fast food restaurants and have access to a public-funded health care system.
Smokers get lung transplants.
All ideologically challenging issues, but all allowed.
But when it comes to vaccinations, all logic, research and demand for impartial discussion about the pros and cons go out the window as a result of media-fueled hysteria resulting from a half dozen cases of measles.
All bets are off.
Us ‘poison-free’ adherents (as opposed to the media version, ‘anti-vaxxers’) are told we’re idiots, we’re a menace to society, we’re baby killers and we’re selfish beyond Croesus.
The pitchforks come out, my rights to make decisions for me and my family and my privacy vanishes overnight!!
Please. Save this vitriol for the oil companies – the real destroyers of our planet.
We’re also told that we’re uninformed and making decisions out of adherence to pagan and simple-minded ‘naturopath’ witch-craft.
The endless attachment of the issues with a discredited Lancet article from 20 years is always the go-to resource for attacking my decision concerning vaccines.
Here is a good summary list of 10 Reasons Why Parents Should Not Vaccinate Their Children. Click on the official links. Review the scientific research.
But that’s probably not sufficient.
So … I will acquiesce.
I like to believe that I’m a rational person. I’m not in this kind of a camp where I’m shivering under my mattress watching videos of fake lunar landings.
I’m a parent with a tough choice to make.
I don’t have the resources to investigate and defend my position, but I still believe we live in a society where when I’m forced to take something, I have a right to ask what’s in it. I have a right to ask the proponents of vaccination to disprove substantial scientific evidence proving that vaccinations are not what they’re cracked up to be. I will take vaccines and bring my son in for vaccinations BUT ONLY if the following are available for the public to review and discuss:
- A national ‘reaction’ database that is transparent and that the medical community is required to update – ie. mandatory – and that individuals can also update with pictures and commentary.
- A full public open database of all ingredients that go into any vaccine, with full ‘layman’s’ descriptions of what the ingredients are, substantiated by supporting documentation and research proving that the ingredients are acceptable and within acceptable limitations for human consumption.
- Full public disclosure and documents audited by a third party of the revenue made on the sale of vaccines to the public, including profit made by pharmaceuticals.
- Disclosure of any relations / meetings / lobbying activity of pharmaceuticals with doctors and the medical community, as well as meeting with politicians.
I suspect that most of this won’t happen, so I’m still arming myself with valuable and reliable information and scientific research into the ingredients related to vaccines and their impact on the health of their victims.
I refer specifically to this scientific analysis of the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) of the CDC (http://www.activistpost.com/2013/01/pretty-damning-statistics.html). The authors found that
Cases that specified either hospitalization or death were identified among infants, defined as children aged less than 1 year, for whom reports were filed in the VAERS database from 1990 through the end of 2010.
The study’s authors downloaded 327,331 VAERS case reports of which they statistically analyzed 298,614 case reports of individuals aged less than 100 years. In their report they explain why they used that number of cases. Of the 298,614 cases 13.1% or 39,082 were infant cases. Of that number, 99.3% or 38,801 infant cases were reported as receiving fewer than 9 vaccine doses concurrently and were available for analyses, which showed 6,279 hospitalizations for children less than one year old and 1,881 deaths. The number of deaths reported occurred as follows:
1,623 deaths in children ages 0.0 year to less than 0.5 year of age or less than six (6) months old out of 26,408 case reports or 6.1%
258 deaths in children ages 0.5 year to 0.9 year of age or less than eleven (11) months old out of 12,393 case reports or 2.1%
If you’re a new parent and that doesn’t scare the living bejesus out of you, here are a few more scientific articles and resources that tell us to be cautious about vaccines:
