(NaturalNews) A critically important, heavily-researched article by Barbara Loe Fisher of the NVIC has been published today. Click here for the original, which we are reprinting below.

As this article exhaustively documents and reveals, the vaccine war taking place in America today is actually a “culture war” pursued by the most irrational and intellectually dishonest Big Pharma operatives, bloggers and journalists ever witnessed in recent memory. These people — the “vaccine pushers” — ignore real science and use wildly dishonest tactics of fear mongering, social shaming and blatant lying about scientific facts to demonize informed parents and attempt to criminalize those who pose intelligent, scientific questions about vaccine safety.

In this way, U.S. doctors, vaccine patent holders (such as Paul Offit), legislators and health regulators are marching America right down the path of medical crimes against humanity — the very same thing we once witnessed carried out by scientists operating under the Nazi regime in Germany.

I’ve just released a new video that explains these dark parallels between today’s vaccine culture war and the Nazi-era medical crimes against humanity. Both are predicated on the totalitarian belief that the government owns your body and can therefore tell you what to do with it.

The Vaccine Culture War in America: Are You Ready?

by Barbara Loe Fisher of the National Vaccine Information Center.

More than 1.2 million people in the United States are infected with HIV (1) but government officials do not ban HIV infected children and adults from attending school, receiving medical care, being employed, or otherwise participating in society. In fact, there are anti-discrimination laws that guarantee civil rights protections for Americans infected with HIV or living with AIDS. (2)

No Discrimination or Societal Sanctions for Infected Citizens

In 2012, public health officials reported that about two million people in America are infected with chlamydia, tuberculosis, syphilis and gonorrhea, (3) and they estimate another three million people are infected with hepatitis C. (4) Like those with HIV or AIDS, these citizens are not targeted for discrimination and blocked from getting a public education, being employed or moving freely in society.

Live Polio Vaccinated Children Could Still Attend School

Between 1963 and 1999, doctors gave live oral polio vaccine to millions of healthy American children, who became infected with vaccine strain polioviruses they shed in their body fluids and transmitted, sometimes causing other children and adults to contract vaccine strain polio paralysis and die. (5) (6) Those with compromised immune systems were at special risk for getting vaccine strain polio and shedding vaccine strain poliovirus for longer periods of time than healthy persons. Yet, children recently given live oral polio vaccine were not excluded from attending school.

Calls for Societal Sanctions After Measles Diagnosed at Disneyland

But in 2015 after a handful of measles cases were identified at Disneyland, suddenly Americans are being asked to surrender civil liberties. We are being asked to discriminate against and condone extreme societal sanctions against fellow citizens, (7) including removing religious and conscientious belief vaccine exemptions from state laws (8) (9) so children cannot attend school without 49 doses of 14 federally recommended vaccines by age six and 20 more vaccinations by age 18. (10)

How did a handful of measles cases at Disneyland turn into a full-scale assault on civil and human rights in America?

12 States Introduce Bills to Eliminate Non-Medical Vaccine Exemptions

Why have politicians in 12 states already filed legislation to eliminate non-medical vaccine exemptions, leaving only a very narrow medical exemption that most people cannot get? (11) (12)

With 93 percent of pediatricians reporting that parents don’t trust the safety of the government recommended child vaccine schedule, (13) why are many of them refusing to provide medical care to children if they have not gotten every dose of every federally recommended vaccine – no exceptions and no questions asked? (14) (15) (16)

Censorship of Speech, Shaming, Imprisonment, MD Licenses Revoked?

Why are editorials calling for censorship of speech (17) (18) and for parents with unvaccinated children to be hunted down and publicly identified, (19) sued, (20) (21) criminally prosecuted and imprisoned, (22) and for doctors who criticize vaccine safety to have their medical licenses revoked? (23)

What is happening right now in America is not about the measles or public health.

Disneyland “Patient Zero” Never Found — Assumptions Made Anyway

It all started in January 2015 after 320 million Americans (24) had just finished ringing in the New Year and California health officials announced that nine visitors to Disneyland were infected with measles. (25) Two weeks later, the total number of measles cases was 51 but no public health doctor in the country could find “patient zero.” (26) That didn’t stop newspapers from proclaiming that a single “unvaccinated” person with measles spoiled the Magic Kingdom and that measles is invading America because of “a decline in parents having their kids vaccinated.” (27) (28)

Measles Immunity Wanes, High MMR Vaccination Rate in U.S.

It did not matter that the science shows measles vaccine immunity is not lifelong and wanes, (29) (30) (31) (32) just like pertussis vaccine immunity is temporary and wanes, (33) (34) (35) or that it is illogical to put all the blame for measles at Disneyland on 1.8% of children attending school with vaccine exemptions (36) (37) when 95% of children entering kindergarten have gotten two MMR shots (38) (39) and only 1% of children under age three are unvaccinated. (40) With a grand total of 170 measles cases reported in 17 states by March 2015, compared to 644 cases reported in 27 states last year, (41) and with 42% of the California-related cases documented to be in unvaccinated persons, while 13% of cases were vaccinated, (42) there is no justification for gutting vaccine exemptions in state public health laws.

Witch Hunt Led By Doctors Against Families, Dissenting Doctors

Rational thinking has been the first casualty in this 21st century equivalent of a 17th century witch hunt (43) led by defensive doctors in government, industry, academia and media, who are fed up with parents asking them questions about vaccine risks and failures they can’t answer. (44) (45) (46) (47) Assisted by communication conglomerates (48) and Astroturfers, (49) (50) (51) (52) (53) they piously wave the science flag and call parents “anti-social” if they don’t vaccinate (54) but completely ignore parents with vaccine injured children talking about how their vaccinated children are never healthy anymore. (55) Some of the most vicious attacks have been on families consciously choosing to stay healthy a different way (56) (57) and on doctors caring for families whose children are unvaccinated or receive fewer vaccines on an altered vaccine schedule. (58) (59)

The Cultural War on Freedom, Values & Beliefs

After headlines like “What would Jesus do about measles?” (60) and “God wants you to vaccinate your children” (61) marked a new low in American journalism, it became clear that the so-called “vaccine war” (62) (63) is really a culture war (64) on freedoms, values and beliefs that have long defined who we are as a nation. (65) (66) (67) How it is fought and where it ends will determine the kind of nation America will become in the 21st century.

$100 Billion Vaccine Market in 2025 Featuring Many New Vaccines

The $30 billion global vaccine market today will be worth a projected $100 billion or more in ten years. (68) A lucrative public-private business partnership has been forged between government and the pharmaceutical industry (69) (70) (71) (72) (73) (74) with your tax dollars to develop hundreds of new vaccines. (75)

Drug companies completely shielded from product liability because Congress and the U.S. Supreme Court have declared vaccines to be “unavoidably unsafe,” (76) (77) are rushing to licensure genetically engineered vaccines for syphilis, (78) gonorrhea, (79) herpes, (80) HIV/AIDS, (81) tuberculosis, (82) chlamydia, (83) hepatitis C, (84) e-coli, (85) cytomegalovirus, (86) ebola, (87) (88) salmonella, (89) norovirus, (90) adenovirus, (91) enterovirus, (92) asthma, (93) diabetes, (94) obesity, (95) high blood pressure, (96) anti-smoking, (97) anti-cocaine (98) and anti-heroin (99) use, and many more that Pharma and government will want many adults, as well as children, to buy and use.

Adult Immunization Plan Targets Women, Employees, Faith Groups

The new National Adult Immunization Plan aggressively targets pregnant women, (100) employers and their employees, (101) faith based groups (102) and other adults for increased vaccine use. (103) (104) Health care workers are already being fired if they do not get an annual flu shot, (105) a vaccine that works less than half the time and was completely ineffective this year. (106) (107)

The next profession on the firing line is the teaching profession. (108) (109) A doctor turned politician in Vermont is pushing a bill to require teachers and everyone working in a school to prove they have gotten government recommended vaccines or be re-vaccinated. (110)

Will your profession be next on that list?

Will You Be Prevented From Moving Freely in Society & Punished?

Will laws be passed to not only deny you a public education but prevent you from obtaining health insurance; entering a doctor’s office, hospital or retirement home; boarding a bus, plane or train; buying a ticket for a movie or football game; shopping in a store, getting a driver’s license, filing your taxes or otherwise participating in and moving freely in society unless you show proof you have gotten every government recommended vaccine?

Will your healthy unvaccinated children be taken from you (111) and will you be fined and thrown in prison? (112) (113)

Will public health officials with police power knock on your door one day and take you to a quarantine camp or forcibly administer vaccines to you and your children without your voluntary informed consent?

If Non-Medical Vaccine Exemptions Removed, You Will Have No Choice

Even if you and your children have willingly received every government recommended vaccine today, if non-medical exemptions are removed from U.S. vaccine laws, you will have no choice if you decide you don’t want to use every new liability-free vaccine that government recommends tomorrow.

This vaccine culture war is about a lot more than vaccination.

Because if the State can tag, track down and force you against your will to be injected with biologicals of known and unknown toxicity today, then there will be no limit on which other freedoms the State can take away in the name of the greater good tomorrow.

What You Can Do If You Are Ready to Take Action

Are you ready to fight for your freedom? If you are, here is what you can do:

GET INVOLVED. Participate in our democracy. Become an active user of the free online vaccine choice advocacy network at NVICAdvocacy.org and work with other people in your state to take action. You will receive email Action Alerts and be put in direct electronic contact with your own legislators so you can call or email them and show up to testify at legislative hearings. Invite your friends and family to do the same.

WITNESS. If you experienced vaccine reactions and are now chronically ill or disabled, you can share your experience with others. You are not alone.

Vaccine reactions and injuries are not as rare as doctors want to admit to themselves or to patients and parents. (114) Today, everybody knows somebody who was healthy, got vaccinated and was never healthy again.

Talk About What Happened to Your Child After Vaccination

If you are a parent and watched your child scream for hours or collapse, twitch and jerk or regress physically, mentally and emotionally and become a totally different child in the days and weeks after vaccination, (115) (116) (117) (118) (119) (120) you have witnessed a serious event that you can talk about with other people, including legislators representing you in your state Capitol and in Congress.

If your child was revaccinated and you observed the same symptoms or your child’s health got worse, it is compelling scientific evidence of a causal relationship between vaccination and what happened to your child. In scientific studies, this is called challenge/re-challenge (121) and what you saw is called clinical observation, (122) even though when parents do the observing most doctors dismiss what happened as “anecdotal” (123) evidence or a “coincidence” (124) (125) that has no value at all.

Your Child’s Life Has Value, Don’t Let Anyone Bully and Shame You

What you witnessed happen to your child after vaccination does have value because your child’s life has value. Don’t let a doctor or anyone else bully and shame you into being afraid to talk about what you saw happen after vaccination, especially if your child is now chronically ill or disabled and has been diagnosed with learning disabilities; ADHD; epilepsy; autoimmunity; autism or communication, developmental or disruptive behavior disorders; asthma, allergy or other brain and immune system dysfunction. (126)

Witnessing about what happened after vaccination is a way to help others understand that every life has value, and no person’s life should be considered expendable, and that we must never forget that universal truth.

REPORT. It is estimated that only between 1 and 10 percent of serious vaccine-associated reactions, hospitalizations, injuries and deaths are ever reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), (127) (128) even though federal law requires all vaccine providers to make reports. If your doctor refuses to file a vaccine reaction report, you can do it yourself. Go to NVIC.org and learn how.

NVIC Vaccine Reaction Registry; Freedom Wall; Memorial; Failure Wall

If you or your child were bullied or threatened with loss of employment, medical care, health insurance, federal food or housing assistance, the right to attend school or anything else because of your vaccination status, you can make a report to your state and federal legislators. Register for the NVIC Advocacy Portal today to be put into direct electronic contact with them.

On NVIC.org, you can also report a vaccine reaction to NVIC’s Vaccine Reaction Registry and share your experiences with others by posting a vaccine harassment report on the Cry for Vaccine Freedom Wall or creating a page on the Memorial for Vaccine Victims or reporting a vaccine failure on the Vaccine Failure Wall.

LEARN MORE. Become educated about infectious diseases and the science, policy, law and ethics of vaccination. Go to NVIC.org to find fully referenced, accurate information you can trust.

Now, I am going to review five myths and facts that will help you understand what the vaccine culture war is really about:

VACCINE CULTURE WAR MYTH NUMBER 1: Most medical doctors say that vaccines do not cause injury or death, so it must be true.

Doctors who say vaccines are safe for everyone and do not cause injury and death are either uninformed, in denial or lying. Since the first vaccine for smallpox, doctors have known and it has been well documented that brain inflammation, permanent brain damage and death have always been among most serious complications of vaccination. (129) (130)

Just like any other pharmaceutical product, vaccines carry a risk of injury or death. These risks can be greater for some people with genetic, biological and environmental risk factors that doctors do not understand or cannot predict. (131)

Congress, U.S. Supreme Court Say Vaccines Are “Unavoidably Unsafe”

Knowing this, Congress in 1986 (132) and the U.S. Supreme Court in 2011 (133) declared vaccines to be “unavoidably unsafe” and shielded drug companies from all product liability. (134) If you or your child are injured or die after vaccination, you cannot hold the drug company that makes and profits from the vaccine or anyone who regulates, promotes, administers or mandates the vaccine accountable in a civil court of law in front of a jury of your peers.

Liability for Seat Belt Manufacturers – NOT for Vaccine Manufacturers

Seat belt manufacturers have product liability (135) but vaccine manufacturers do not. Doctors can be sued for malpractice except when they administer vaccinations that injure or kill a person.

Vaccines are the only product government mandates and completely indemnifies.

The federal government has paid $3 billion dollars in compensation to victims of vaccine injury and death under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986. (136)

VACCINE CULTURE WAR MYTH NUMBER 2: People who question vaccine safety are ignorant and do not understand the science.

Just the opposite is true. Most people who question vaccine safety are very intelligent and understand the difference between good science and bad science. (137) (138) (139)

Studies reveal that mothers and fathers with college or post-graduate degrees are the ones who most often question the safety of vaccines. (140) (141) (142) They are wondering whether government policy directing pediatricians to give children three times as many vaccinations as children got 30 years ago (143) is safe, effective and necessary.

Big Knowledge Gaps in Vaccine Safety Science

If growing concerns among parents about vaccination was simply due to ignorance, two decades of reports published by the Institute of Medicine would not have found large knowledge gaps in vaccine safety science. (144) For example, there are fewer than 40 published studies evaluating the safety of the federally recommended child vaccine schedule for infants and children under age six. (145)

VACCINE CULTURE WAR MYTH NUMBER 3: People who do not vaccinate are selfish and don’t care about the public health.

While we are all born equal with equal rights under the law, we are not born all the same. Each one of us is born with different genes and a unique microbiome influenced by epigenetics (146) that affects how we respond to diseases (147) (148) and pharmaceutical products like vaccines. (149) (150)

Many Americans no longer vaccinate today because the risks of vaccination turned out to be 100 percent for them, their children or other family members. They have good reason to believe that the genes they were born with make them more susceptible to vaccine harm. (151) (152) (153) (154) (155)

Vaccine Vulnerable Families Can’t Find Doctors to Write Medical Exemptions

But often these former vaccinators cannot find a doctor to write a medical exemption because almost no health condition qualifies for a medical exemption to vaccination anymore. (156) Unless you are dying of cancer and on chemotherapy, have had a recent organ transplant or have the most severe combined immune deficiency, most doctors will not grant you a medical vaccine exemption. (157)

Non-medical vaccine exemptions are the only way vaccine vulnerable families can protect their lives.

Some Healthy Americans Choosing Different Path to Health

Some Americans use fewer vaccines or remain unvaccinated because they have chosen a different path to health. They focus on boosting immune function with good nutrition, exercise, avoiding environmental toxins and using holistic health alternatives that do not rely on heavy use of pharmaceutical products. (158) (159) (160) (161) They are contributing significantly to the public health because they and their children are very healthy.

It is not selfish to want to make informed choices about how to stay healthy. It is not selfish to protect yourself and your children from harm, especially if you believe your family is more susceptible to vaccine injury. If everyone protects their own health and the health of their children, the public health will be protected.

VACCINE CULTURE WAR MYTH NUMBER 4: Science trumps religious beliefs so religious exemptions to vaccination should be eliminated.

The attack on Americans with religious or spiritual beliefs is central to the political agenda driving this cultural war. (162) (163) (164) Fellow citizens, who do not believe there is a God, (165) (166) (167) (168) are demanding that those who have faith in God be required to place the same faith in science and doctors.(169)

There is a big difference between fallible human beings and God, but some doctors do not understand this difference.

Vaccine Developer Ridicules Religious Belief, Quotes Scripture

One prominent pediatrician vaccine developer, (170) who insists that babies can safely be given 10,000 vaccines on the same day, (171) has publicly ridiculed religious beliefs (172) (173) (174) but now is hypocritically quoting holy scripture (175) and comparing Disneyland to the “Garden of Eden.” (176) Invoking the name of Jesus, he is trying to shame Christian parents refusing to obey his orders to give their children every government recommended vaccine, including the one he created (177) that has made him a very rich man. (178) (179) (180)

Mothers Responsible for the Health of Their Children

I remember many years ago when a public health doctor promoting the “No Shots, No School” campaign in America suggested I was “selfish” for declining to give my two youngest children pertussis vaccine even though my oldest son was DPT vaccine injured. Implicit was the suggestion that I had no right to protect my own children’s health if it conflicted with what doctors believe protects the public health.

I looked him straight in the eyes and said “Doctor, whether or not I put my child’s life on the line for you and your vaccine is between me and my God and not between me and you.”

As mothers, we carry our babies inside us for nine months, we give birth, we love them more than we thought we could ever love anyone and we nurture them throughout childhood so they can grow up to be productive adult members of society. We are responsible for their health and we are the ones who care for them when they become sick and unable to care for themselves for any reason, and we are the ones who weep at their graves if they die before we do.

Do Not Let Anyone Violate Your Religious, Conscientious Beliefs

You do not have to belong to an organized religion or state recognized church to hold sincere religious or spiritual beliefs about health and vaccination. (181) (182) (183) As a mother or father, you have the God given natural right to use the brain and gut instincts God gave you to consider the evidence, examine your conscience, pray for guidance and exercise the human right to informed consent to medical risk-taking on behalf of your minor child. Do not let a doctor, government employee or politician take that God given right away from you.

It is a violation of religious freedom to force vaccination when you hold religious or spiritual beliefs opposing use of one or more vaccines and it is a violation of the human spirit to force you to disobey the certain judgment of your conscience.

VACCINE CULTURE WAR MYTH NUMBER 5: It is ethical for government to sacrifice the few for the many.

Based on hedonism (184) and a mathematical equation, this philosophy is called utilitarianism (185) (186) and comes from the word “utility.” (187) The utilitarian rationale was created as a guide for legislators making public policy by an 18th century British social reformer Jeremy Bentham, (188) (189) whose mummified head is being preserved by the University College London, where a wax version is on public display. (190) In 1905, the U.S. Supreme Court used Bentham’s utilitarian rationale to rule in Jacobsen v. Massachusetts that state legislatures had the power to enact mandatory smallpox vaccination laws. (191)

American Eugenicists, U.S. Supreme Court Embraces Utilitarianism

American eugenicists and social reformers embraced utilitarianism in the early 20th century. (192) (193) They argued that government has the legal right to discriminate against a minority of citizens judged to be genetically defective or a threat to the health and welfare of society. In 1923, U.S. Supreme Court justice Oliver Wendall Holmes (194) gave the green light to the state of Virginia to forcibly sterilize a young woman, Carrie Buck, because doctors judged her to be mentally retarded just like her daughter and mother.

Coldly, Holmes proclaimed: “three generations of imbeciles are enough” and said “The principle that sustains compulsory vaccination is broad enough to cover cutting the fallopian tubes.” (195)

It turns out Carrie Buck was not mentally retarded and neither was her daughter or mother. (196)

Utilitarianism Pseudo-Ethic In Its Most Extreme Form

Doctors and public health officials in the Third Reich implemented utilitarianism in its most extreme form to justify conducting horrific scientific experiments on captive people. (197) (198) The Nuremberg Tribunal justices presiding over The Doctors Trial after World War II declared utilitarianism to be a pseudo ethic. They issued the Nuremberg Code outlining the informed consent principle, (199) (200) which has guided research on humans and the ethical practice of medicine ever since. (201) (202) (203)

Forced Vaccination Laws Sacrifice the Genetically Vulnerable

The Institute of Medicine has confirmed that some individuals have known and unknown genetic risk factors that make them more susceptible to vaccine injury and death. (204) This means forced vaccination laws that fail to include flexible medical and non-medical exemptions become a utilitarian, de facto selection of the genetically vulnerable for sacrifice. (205)

Is America really going to walk down that road? Are we going to punish citizens for the genes they were born with in the name of the public health?

Are we going to slide down the slippery slope of utilitarianism and ignore the profound ethical and legal questions that remain: Who gets to decide what protects the public health? Which individuals should be sacrificed? And how many is too many?

Industry & Government Fail to Fund Good Vaccine Safety Science

Industry (206) and government have refused to fund good science to better understand the biological mechanisms for vaccine injury and death, and whether there are important health differences between vaccinated and unvaccinated people, (207) and whether increased vaccine use during the past 30 years is a major co-factor in the unexplained chronic disease and disability epidemic plaguing America.

With 1 child in 6 diagnosed with learning disabilities, (208) 1 in 9 with asthma, (209) (210) 1 in 50 with autism (211) and 1 in 400 with diabetes (212) (213) and millions of Americans suffering with cancer and other immune and brain disorders that cost our nation $3 trillion dollars a year to treat,(214) (215) (216) (217) isn’t it time for government to explain to taxpayers exactly why vaccine safety science should be left off our nation’s scientific research agenda?

Perhaps they already know they don’t have to do that because they are getting laws passed to hunt down and vaccinate every last child and adult in America. Eliminating non-medical vaccine exemptions will guarantee that scientific evaluation of health outcome differences between vaccinated and unvaccinated people in America will never be done.

The Future Is In Our Hands

The future of health and freedom in America is in our hands. It is in your hands.

It’s your health. Your family. Your choice.

According to recent reports, the FDA has approved yet another HPV vaccine, despite documented safety issues and the new vaccine containing an exceptionally high level of aluminum, a known neurotoxin.

Until now, only two vaccines have been manufactured to protect men and women against human papillomavirus (HPV), a virus believed to be the leading cause of cervical cancer: Cervarix, which is believed to protect against strains 16 and 18 of the virus, and Gardasil, which is believed to protect against strains 6, 11, 16 and 18.

A Third HPV Vaccine Hits the Market

In December 2014, Gardasil 9 vaccine, manufactured by Merck Sharp and Dohme, was approved by the FDA. This vaccine appears to be somewhat of a “super” vaccine in comparison to the previous versions, as the FDA has claimed it can protect men and women against no less than NINE strains of the HPV virus.

In a press release published on December 10, 2014, the FDA stated:

“Gardasil 9 is a vaccine approved for use in females ages 9 through 26 and males ages 9 through 15. It is approved for the prevention of cervical, vulvar, vaginal and anal cancers caused by HPV types 16, 18, 31, 33, 45, 52 and 58, and for the prevention of genital warts caused by HPV types 6 or 11. Gardasil 9 adds protection against five additional HPV types—31, 33, 45, 52 and 58— which cause approximately 20 percent of cervical cancers and are not covered by previously FDA-approved HPV vaccines.”

Despite the FDA’s impressive press release, however, can parents really believe that this HPV vaccine is any safer than its predecessors?

Many are skeptical and have begun to question whether or not this vaccine is yet another unsafe, fast-tracked vaccine.

Parents Question Whether or Not They Can Really Trust the FDA’s Claims

In a recent paper, titled HPV Vaccines, the American Cancer Society stated that:

“All of the HPV vaccines were tested in thousands of people around the world before they were approved. These studies showed no serious side effects and no deaths have been linked to either vaccine. Common, mild side effects include pain where the shot was given, fever, dizziness, and nausea.”

However, parents should question the validity of this statement, especially since it has been proven in court that the HPV vaccines Gardasil and Cervarix were licensed for use before safety trials had been completed.

In 2013, Leslie Carol Botha wrote an article titled India Women Activist’s Historic Writ of Petition over Unethical Trialing of HPV Vaccines, Gardasil® and Cervarix® Accepted by Supreme Court.

Ms. Botha’s article was based on a press release issued by Kalpana Mehta, Nalini Bhanot and V. Rukmini Rao, representing Gramya Resource Centre for Women from Andhra Pradesh. The press release, entitled India Supreme Court Accepts Writ of Petition on Gardasil® & Cervarix® Licensing & Trial Violations, implicated the drugs controller of India, PATH, ICMR and others, ordering the government of India to immediately respond.

Ms. Botha wrote:

“The Petition implicates the: Indian Drugs Controller for licensing the HPV vaccines without sufficient research on their safety and efficacy, and the Health Ministry for not carrying out an enquiry into licensing of these vaccines as ordered by the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Health and Family Welfare in April 2010. The Parliamentary committee also neglected to take any action on the report of the enquiry committee (set up by its own organization) despite confirmation of the ‘gross violations’ found in the PATH project with “respect to procedures for taking informed consent, inadequate health facilities for dealing with adverse events and medical emergencies.”

The three petitioners won their landmark case, making vaccine history and their success was reported by Health Impact News in 2014. (See Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Vaccine Empire on Trial in India.)

HPV Vaccines Found to be Associated with Disability and Death

Over the years, the HPV vaccines have been seen to cause more cases of pain and suffering than any other vaccine, another worrying fact that parents need to consider before having their children vaccinated.

In 2013, Dr. Mercola wrote an article titled Oncology Dietician Exposes Fraud in CDC’s HPV Vaccine Effectiveness Study, that stated, according to Merck’s own research, if a patient has been exposed to HPV strains 16 or 18 prior to receipt of a Gardasil vaccine, the vaccine could increase their risk of developing precancerous lesions, or worse, by 44.6 percent.

This is extremely worrying, especially as Mercola also reported that not only had Gardasil been associated with many serious health problems, such as Guillain-Barre Syndrome and permanent disability, but the vaccine had also been associated with many women dying suddenly soon after receiving the vaccine.

This information has left parents wondering whether it is safer not to vaccinate their children against HPV and whether the new Gardasil 9 vaccine really is any safer than its two predecessors.

Possibly not, according to the Forbes website:

“Safety data on Gardasil 9 is based on adverse reactions tracked in more than 13,000 males and females. Headaches and swelling, redness and pain at the injection site were the ones most commonly reported. Among these participants, five individuals reported serious adverse events that were determined to be vaccine-related. These events included fever, allergy to the vaccine, asthmatic crisis, headache and tonsillitis.”

However, the facts get worse.

Adverse Reactions Including Death Reported

During my research, I came across the Gardasil 9 package insert, which, unsurprisingly, reported a wide range of adverse reactions, ranging from pain at the injection site to death.

Page six and seven of the insert stated:

“Serious Adverse Events in Clinical Studies

Serious adverse events were collected throughout the entire study period (range one month to 48 months post-last dose) for the six integrated clinical studies for GARDASIL 9. Out of the 13,236 individuals who were administered GARDASIL 9 and had safety follow-up, 305 reported a serious adverse event; representing 2.3% of the population. As a comparison, of the 7,378 individuals who were administered GARDASIL and had safety follow-up, 185 reported a serious adverse event; representing 2.5% of the population. Five GARDASIL 9 recipients each reported at least one serious adverse event that was determined to be vaccine-related. The vaccine-related serious adverse reactions were pyrexia, allergy to vaccine, asthmatic crisis, headache, and tonsillitis.

Deaths in the Entire Study Population

Across the clinical studies, ten deaths occurred (five each in the GARDASIL 9 and GARDASIL groups); none were assessed as vaccine-related. Causes of death in the GARDASIL 9 group included one automobile accident, one suicide, one case of acute lymphocytic leukemia, one case of hypovolemic septic shock, and one unexplained sudden death 678 days following the last dose of GARDASIL 9. Causes of death in the GARDASIL control group included one automobile accident, one airplane crash, one cerebral hemorrhage, one gunshot wound, and one stomach adenocarcinoma.”

As usual, the deaths were said not to be vaccine-related. However, without any definitive medical analysis, we only have Merck’s word for this.

So, how concerned should parents be?

This vaccine contains over twice as much aluminum as its predecessor, Gardasil, one fact that should be noted by all parents considering the new vaccine, as highlighted in a recent article written by Sane Vax Inc. They stated that:

“The proposed Gardasil 9 package insert and the current Gardasil package insert are a good place to start a critical examination. The table below lists the ingredients of both Gardasil and Gardasil 9. All differences from one HPV vaccine package insert to the next are highlighted.

Gardasil Ingredient Gardasil 9
225 mcg AAHS (aluminum adjuvant) 500 mcg
9.56 mcg Sodium Chloride 9.56 mcg
.78 mcg L-Histidine .78 mcg
50 mcg Polysorbate 80 50 mcg
35 mcg Sodium Borate 35 mcg
<7 mcg Yeast Protein <7 mcg
20 mcg HPV 6 L1 protein 30 mcg
40 mcg HPV 11 L1 protein 40 mcg
40 mcg HPV 16 L1 protein 60 mcg
20 mcg HPV 18 L1 protein 20 mcg
HPV 31 L1 protein 20 mcg
HPV 33 L1 protein 20 mcg
HPV 45 L1 protein 20 mcg
HPV 52 L1 protein 20 mcg
HPV 58 L1 protein 20 mcg

Sane Vax continued:

“Take a look at the first line in the chart to the left. Aluminum is a known neurotoxin. A quick search of PubMed for ‘aluminum toxicity human’ returns no less than 1652 peer-reviewed and published scientific papers on the subject. Why did Merck more than double the amount of aluminum adjuvant in Gardasil 9?”

Taking all of this information into account, parents need to read the following research before they consider vaccinating their children against cervical cancer.

Scientists Find Evidence Linking Gardasil to Autoimmune Disease

The Children’s Medical Safety Research Institute, an organization that has provided grants for an investigation into the link between aluminum adjuvants, vaccination and autoimmune disease, is supporting independent research on HPV vaccine safety.

Several recent studies have been published in peer-reviewed scientific journals that have evaluated both biological and epidemiological evidence from reports of adverse reactions, autoimmune diseases and deaths after Gardasil.

In 2011, Dr. Lucija Tomljenovic and Professor Christopher Shaw published an assessment of the post-marketing surveillance data in The Annals of Medicine, which indicated that there was a 2.5 times greater rate of a serious adverse reactions from the vaccine than deaths from cervical cancer.

In their paper, titled Human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine policy and evidence-based medicine: Are they at odds?, they wrote:

“Currently, governmental health agencies worldwide state that HPV vaccines are ‘safe and effective’ and that the benefits of HPV vaccination outweigh the risks (6,23,24). Moreover, the US CDC maintains that Gardasil is ‘an important cervical cancer prevention tool ’ and therefore ‘ recommends HPV vaccination for the prevention of most types of cervical cancer ’ (6,7). However, the rationale behind these statements is unclear given that the primary claim that HPV vaccination prevents cervical cancer remains unproven. Furthermore, in the US, the current age-standardized death rate from cervical cancer according to World Health Organization (WHO) data (1.7/100,000) (Table I), is 2.5 times lower than the rate of serious adverse reactions (ADRs) from Gardasil reported to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) (4.3/100,000 doses distributed) (Table II). In the Netherlands, the reported rate of serious ADRs from Cervarix per 100,000 doses administered (5.7) (Table II) is nearly 4-fold higher than the age-standardized death rate from cervical cancer (1.5/100,000) (Table I).”

The findings from their research are extremely worrisome and contain some outstanding research and facts.

Subsequently, Dr. Mark Geier, MD, and Dr. David Geier, PhD, published an analysis of the relationship between Gardasil and certain autoimmune diseases. In October 2014, they wrote a paper titled A case–control study of quadrivalent human papillomavirus vaccine-associated autoimmune adverse events. Using the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) website, they studied whether or not Gardasil was linked to the rise in the number of autoimmune diseases being reported. They wrote that:

“An epidemiological study was undertaken to evaluate concerns about the potential for HPV4 vaccination to induce serious autoimmune adverse events (SAAEs). The vaccine adverse event reporting system (VAERS) database was examined for adverse event reports associated with vaccines administered from January 2006 through December 2012 to recipients between 18 and 39 years old with a listed residence in the USA and a specified female gender.”

They continued:

“The question of a connection between vaccination and autoimmune illness has long been debated in the literature and is surrounded by controversy, but it was suggested that the same mechanisms that act in infectious invasion of the host apply equally to the host response to vaccination. As recently reviewed, the introduction of HPV vaccine was associated with several cases of onset or exacerbations of autoimmune diseases following immunization in the literature and pharmacovigilance databases, triggering concerns about its safety.”

The results of their study demonstrated that Gardasil is indeed linked to a variety of autoimmune diseases, including arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus. They stated that:

“It was observed that the SAAEs of gastroenteritis, arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, vasculitis, alopecia, and CNS conditions were associated with HPV4 vaccine administration, whereas the SAAEs of Guillain-Barre syndrome and thrombocytopenia were not associated with HPV4 vaccine administration. In addition, it was observed that the general health outcomes of infection, conjunctivitis, and diarrhea were not associated with HPV4 vaccine administration. The importance of these findings is that the present study provides epidemiological evidence to support an association between HPV4 vaccine administration and specific SAAEs.”

They concluded that:

“In conclusion, the present study provides epidemiological evidence supporting a significant relationship between HPV4 vaccine administration and SAAEs. The results are consistent with a number of previous case-series of SAAEs observed following HPV4 vaccine administration, and are also consistent with the known biological plausibility of vaccine administration to induce SAAEs in some vaccine recipients. In light of the findings of the present study, we recommend that additional studies be conducted to further evaluate the potential biological mechanisms involved in HPV4 vaccine-associated SAAEs in animal model systems, and to examine the potential epidemiological relationship between HPV4 vaccine-associated SAAEs in other databases and populations.”

If the Geiers’ study is correct and Gardasil really is linked to an increase in autoimmune disease, than can parents expect to see a further increase now that the amount of aluminum used in the new Gardasil 9 vaccine has more than doubled?

Is the FDA Fit for Its Purpose?

Sane Vax believes that the FDA is no longer fit for its purpose and concluded their article by stating:

“The FDA needs to be removed from the responsibility of ‘assuring the safety, efficacy and security’ of vaccines. It is quite obvious they are not up to the task. They are most certainly not acting in the best interests of the public.”

Evidence suggests that a growing number of parents from around the world believe that they are absolutely correct.

Conclusion

Taking all of this information into consideration, do we need to be worried that yet another HPV vaccine has been approved? Many professionals are concerned that this vaccine has once again been fast-tracked without sufficient research and testing.

If they are correct, then can we as parents expect even more of our children to be vaccine-injured, especially given the fact that this vaccine contains an exceptionally high content of aluminum?

Parents need to ask themselves whether or not a third vaccine for the HPV virus is one vaccine too many and why the governments and pharmaceutical industry deemed it necessary to manufacture another vaccine against cervical cancer in the first place.

(From NaturalNews.com) The surest sign of a medical dictatorship is an aggressively enforced blockade against intelligent questions. Intelligent questions, after all, can destroy a medical police state because they expose the fraud of it.

Intelligent questions — which the vaccine industry characterizes as “dangerous” — are the greatest threat to the vaccine delusions still being played out across the world today, which is precisely why such questions are not allowed to be asked. Those daring to ask such questions are now being threatened with mass arrest and imprisonment — that’s how vulnerable the fraudulent vaccine industry has now become. It can be brought down by mere words if only those words are allowed to be circulated.

What sort of questions are we not allowed to ask? Here are 21 censored questions the obedient, pharma-controlled mainstream media will never dare ask:

Question #1) If measles vaccines confer measles immunity, then why do already-vaccinated children have anything to fear from a measles outbreak?

Question #2) If vaccines work so well, then why did Merck virologists file a False Claims Act with the U.S. government, describing the astonishing scientific fraud of how Merck faked its vaccine results to trick the FDA?

Question #3) If vaccines don’t have any links to autism, then why did a top CDC scientist openly confess to the CDC committing scientific fraud by selectively omitting clinical trial data after the fact in order to obscure an existing link between vaccines and autism?

His exact statement, published on the website of his legal counsel:

My name is William Thompson. I am a Senior Scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, where I have worked since 1998. I regret that my coauthors and I omitted statistically significant information in our 2004 article published in the journal Pediatrics. The omitted data suggested that African American males who received the MMR vaccine before age 36 months were at increased risk for autism. Decisions were made regarding which findings to report after the data were collected, and I believe that the final study protocol was not followed.

Question #4) If mercury is a neurotoxic chemical (which it is), then why is it still being injected into children and pregnant women via vaccines? Why does the vaccine industry refuse to remove all the mercury from vaccines in the interests of protecting children from mercury?

The U.S. government tells us that lead in water is BAD, but mercury in vaccines is GOOD!

Question #5) If vaccines are so incredibly safe, then why does the vaccine industry need absolute legal immunity from all harm caused by its products?

Question #6) If vaccines work so well to prevent disease, then why do some vaccines (like the chickenpox vaccine) openly admit that they can cause the spread of chickenpox?

Question #7) If vaccines are so great for public health, then why do these historical public health charts show nearly all the declines in infectious disease taking place BEFORE vaccines arrived on the scene?

http://vaccineliberationarmy.com/2014/03/20/…

Question #8) If vaccines are perfectly safe, then why did at least 13 people recently die in Italy after being vaccinated?

Question #9) If vaccines are so trustworthy, then why did a pro-vaccine group in Africa recently discover — to its shock and horror — that vaccines being given to young African women were secretly laced with abortion chemicals?

Question #10) If vaccines are backed by solid science, then why do some vaccine inserts openly admit they are backed by no clinical trials?

…there have been no controlled trials adequately demonstrating a decrease in influenza disease after vaccination with FLULAVAL.

Question #11) If vaccines are so safe, then why does this vaccine insert admit that the Gardasil vaccine causes “acute respiratory illness” in babies who consume the breast milk of mothers who have been vaccinated?

Question #12) If vaccines are so safe, then why does this Gardasil insert sheet admit that the vaccine causes “seizure-like activity, headache, fever, nausea and dizziness” and can even cause those injected with the vaccine to lose consciousness and fall, resulting in injury?

Question #13) If vaccines are totally safe, then why do vaccine insert sheets disclose a long list of frightening and bizarre side effects associated with their vaccines?

Just some of the adverse effects experienced after flu shot vaccines include:

• Eye pain and chest pain
• Arthritis
• Dizziness, tremors and losing consciousness (syncope)
• Convulsions and seizures
• Guillian-Barre Syndrome
• Cranial nerve paralysis or limb paralysis
• Swelling of the brain
• Partial facial paralysis
… and much more. See the text yourself:

Question #14) If vaccines are backed by so much “science” then why do they frequently admit there really aren’t any studies of the vaccine for the very groups of people who are often injected with it?

Question #15) If vaccines are so safe to give to pregnant women, then why do the vaccine insert sheets openly admit most of them have never been tested for safety in pregnant women? In fact, this vaccine admits “the effects of the vaccine in fetal development are unknown.”

Question #16) If vaccines are so safe to be injected into the bodies of children and pregnant women, then why do their own insert sheets readily admit they are manufactured with a cocktail of toxic chemical ingredients including “fetal bovine serum?” (The blood serum of aborted baby cows.)

Question #17) If vaccines achieve absolute immunity, then why are as many as 97 percent of children struck by infectious disease already vaccinated against that disease?

Question #18) If vaccines are totally safe and effective, then why did this five-year-old girl recently die from the very strain of flu she was just vaccinated against?

Question #19) If the mainstream media claims to report honest, unbiased information about vaccines, then why was there a total nationwide blackout on the news of the CDC whistleblower admitting vaccines are linked to autism?

This was one of the most censored medical news stories of 2014, and the CDC’s criminal cover-up stretches back more than 12 years…

Question #20) Why does the CDC falsely claim all vaccines are completely safe and effective when its own website still lists the toxic chemical ingredients used in vaccines?

The CDC openly admits that mercury, formaldehyde, MSG, aluminum, antibiotics and other chemicals are still used in vaccines. Here’s a screen shot from the CDC website’s vaccine additives page that confirms this:

Click here to read a more complete list of toxic vaccine ingredients and heavy metals still used in vaccines given to children today.

Question #21) If the vaccine industry cares so much about children, then why does it call for the arrest of parents and the breaking up of families of unvaccinated children, begging for the state to seize custody of those children at gunpoint while incarcerating the parents in prison?

By Dr. Mercola

As a result of today’s skyrocketing rates of chronic disease and disability among children, including autism, some scientists are questioning the safety of large-scale vaccination programs.

In spite of serious adverse effects among some particularly vulnerable people—many of whom are children—public health officials and many doctors giving vaccines continue to bury their heads in the sand, refusing to even acknowledge there’s a problem.

The featured documentary, “Shots in the Dark: Silence on Vaccine,” takes a hard look at vaccine toxicity and its impact on families. Although released in 2011, the concerns raised are still relevant today.

Current research casts a shadow of doubt about vaccines being as safe as people have been led to believe. Several concerned scientists and many vaccine safety critics are sounding the alarm in hopes of gaining the attention of a public that tends to believe, without question, what doctors and the media say—that vaccines are unquestionably safe for everyone.

Certainly the original intention behind mass vaccination programs was a noble one—to reduce the spread of dangerous infections and increase our children’s odds of living long, healthy lives.

However, cases of severe, debilitating vaccine-triggered illnesses are becoming less of a rarity and lead to the logical conclusion that we may be trading artificial, temporary vaccine acquired immunity for life-long illness and disability.

Vaccine Safety Studies Severely Outdated – By Almost 100 Years!

There is increasing evidence that vaccines cause children to suffer more adverse reactions than any other pharmaceutical product.

Some of the recent research points to vaccines playing a key role in cases of autism, multiple sclerosis, Guillain-Barre syndrome and other major illnesses, particularly among individuals who are predisposed to react adversely to vaccine components.

Vaccines contain a variety of toxic compounds, including thimerosal (a mercury-containing preservative) and aluminum hydroxide, the most commonly used adjuvant which may be even more dangerous than mercury.

Vaccines are a $30 billion per year industry. Decades ago there used to be dozens of vaccine manufacturers, but today just five big drug corporations dominate the lucrative world vaccine market: Pfizer, Merck, Sanofi Pasteur, Novartis and GlaxoSmithKline.

Vaccine manufacturers, government health officials, medical trade associations and the majority of physicians reject outright any suggestion of a cause-and-effect relationship between vaccines and serious illness, relying on poorly designed studies, some dating back to the late 1920s.

With the scientific advancements over the past century, those studies are seriously dated. For example, in the 1920s we had no idea that certain compounds interact to produce toxic and mutating effects on human DNA.

There is no way to predict how vaccines may be causing new mutations and damaging you or your child’s DNA because it simply hasn’t been studied. There is much we didn’t know then about how the brain and immune systems develop and function, and much we still don’t know.

Today, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)1 recommends 69 doses of 16 vaccines for your child, starting on his or her day of birth and continuing through age 18—including 49 doses before the age of six. This is more than double the number of vaccines prescribed 30 years ago.

Such a regimen typically manipulates and deals a heavy blow to your child’s developing immune system, raising his or her risk for development of brain dysfunction and autoimmune disorders.

Vaccine Adjuvants Linked to Dangerous Gene Mutations

The official line is that vaccines don’t cause a type of brain and immune dysfunction that is labeled by doctors as “autism” or “autism spectrum disorder.” However, rates of autism, along with many other chronic immunological and neurological diseases have exploded over exactly the same time period that our infants and children have been hit with increasing numbers of vaccines.

Autism rates are approximately 200 times higher than they were 30 years ago. In 1985, autism affected one child in 10,000 in America. In 2014, it was one in 50. Senior MIT Research Scientist Stephanie Seneff estimates that, based on current projections, half of all children will have autism by the year 2025! 2

Vaccine advocates claim that autism is a “genetic disease,” but that’s an outdated model. Emerging evidence suggests that autism is actually an epigenetic disease—meaning, autism is triggered by de novo mutations that change a child’s genes.

But what’s causing these mutations and DNA changes? They are likely caused by a number of coexisting factors, related to the toxic nature of our modern world. Environmental chemicals and other toxins can turn genes on that would ordinarily be dormant, and turn genes off that would normally protect you.

For example, some researchers have correlated elevated autism rates with the introduction of vaccines that use human fetal cell lines and retroviral contaminants. There is also scientific evidence that the mercury preservatives and aluminum adjuvants in vaccines are creating health problems.

Scientist Finds Direct Evidence of Mercury Overload in Autistic Children

Human exposures to mercury and aluminum have increased dramatically over the past 30 years. The human body isn’t equipped to break down and eliminate these heavy metals, so they tend to accumulate in tissues over time. It’s been a challenging task for scientists to tease out exactly what effect this increased mercury load has on long term health.

For example, researchers have found that some people have a more difficult time excreting mercury from the body than others potentially due to genetic or other biological differences. Accumulation of mercury in the human body can have devastating effects on health.

Dr. Robert Nataf, Director of the Philippe Auguste Laboratory in Paris, France, was tasked with exploring the biology of children diagnosed with autism. He found direct evidence of mercury toxicity in the children, who had elevated porphyrin levels. Porphyrins are essential compounds that help you fight toxins, and he found porphyrins specific to mercury elevated in autistic children, which suggests mercury overload.

Prior studies have shown that when a person has mercury poisoning, the body’s cells cannot build the intercellular transport network (microtubules) necessary to get substances made by the cell to where they are needed. The result of this blockage can be chronic illness. In the documentary, Dr. Nataf uses this metaphor: “Mercury is like a highway accident. The result is a weakening of the cell’s functioning. When a cell weakens, it starts making mistakes, creating malformations.”

Aluminum Adjuvants May Cause Your Body to Attack Itself

Total Video Length: 41:58

Download Interview Transcript

In the video above, Dr. David Ayoub discusses how the aluminum in vaccines may be even more dangerous than mercury. Aluminum is to your brain and central nervous system as cigarette smoke is to your lungs, producing tremendous oxidative stress. When you review the signs and symptoms of aluminum toxicity, they are quite similar to the symptoms of autism, ADHD, Alzheimer’s, ALS, Parkinson’s and other neurological diseases.

Aluminum hydroxide is the oldest and most commonly used vaccine adjuvant and is considered “safe,” in spite of scientific evidence to the contrary. An adjuvant’s role is to hyper-stimulate the immune system to mount a strong antibody response to the lab altered virus or bacteria introduced into the body by a vaccine. It was once thought that the body eliminated aluminum hydroxide within a few days of an aluminum containing vaccine being injected into it, but scientists now know this isn’t necessarily true.  For genetic or biological reasons that we don’t yet understand, some people appear predisposed to poor aluminum detoxification, so it accumulates in their tissues and leads to myalgias, fatigue, cognitive deficiencies and other health problems.

Although somewhat rare, another illness that can result from injected aluminum hydroxide is macrophagic myofasciitis3(MMF), marked by disabling pain in your muscles, skin and fascia. Muscle biopsies of those with MMF show dark fibrous structures in the cytoplasm of their macrophages, proven to be aluminum hydroxide. The macrophages in their muscle tissue form masses called granulomas, and the resulting inflammation causes widespread pain throughout their bodies.

The aluminum vaccine adjuvant is doing what it was designed to do, telling the immune system to mount a strong response, but when aluminum is lodged in your muscle, your body can attack itself and elicit a classic autoimmune reaction. Aluminum can travel around your body easily, unimpeded, piggybacking on your iron transport system. It crosses biological barriers that normally keep other types of toxins out, such as your blood-brain barrier. Over time, aluminum can accumulate in your brain and cause brain inflammation. Aluminum toxicity may be contributing to the Alzheimer’s epidemic, as well as other neurological and immune disorders commonly seen today.

Vaccines May Contain Six Times More Aluminum Than Labels Say

If you go by the aluminum content on vaccine labels, the amount kids are getting is excessive, but if you add in the aluminum NOT listed on the labels—”accidental exposure” due to contamination—it’s a much more serious problem. Dr. Ayoub cites one study that found five to six times more aluminum in vaccines than what was actually listed on the labels. Vaccines are not the only source of aluminum exposure—it’s present in the air, water, food, beverages, cosmetics, anti-perspirants and other consumer products. Not surprisingly, as children’s aluminum burden has increased, so has the prevalence of childhood neurological disorders.

Can Vaccines Cause Permanent Brain Damage?

Although there are a number of biological mechanisms that have been implicated in facilitating vaccine-induced brain inflammation and immune dysfunction, clues about the effects of heavy metal toxicity on your brain can be found in the relatively new field of neuroimmunology. The brain’s immune system is comprised of cells called microglia, which function similarly to the macrophages found in other parts of the body. You have as many microglia in your brain as neurons—they cover nearly all of your brain tissue, and they are mobile, moving about in order to identify and destroy foreign particles that pose a threat to your neurons.

Playing a key role in your brain’s immune response, microglia produce a number of inflammatory molecules. This inflammatory response is a two-edged sword. If inflammation does not resolve, it can damage cerebral tissue—damage that CAN be permanent. When microglia are confused, they sometimes become “hyperactive” and attack everything, which can lead to cognitive deficiencies, demyelination, permanent brain damage or even death.  This is how vaccine adjuvants may cause permanent brain damage, especially among infants and children with genetic susceptibilities and underlying neurological or immune system disorders that may or may not have been diagnosed.

If your child has a hypersensitive immune response pattern that’s different from the norm, he or she may be at increased risk for suffering a vaccine reaction.  At the present time, it is well known that the large gaps in vaccine safety science mean that doctors have few ways to reliably predict which child is going to experience such a reaction. Parents are seldom warned of all vaccine risks, even when their child has had a previous vaccine reaction or has a known neurological or immune system disorder that has the potential to raise those risks!

Most Adverse Vaccine Reactions Are Never Connected

Proving causation is extremely difficult with vaccine reactions. Unless symptoms of a vaccine reaction are immediate and dramatic, parents and doctors may not connect a child’s health deterioration to vaccinations a child received. When parents report a reaction to their child’s physician, they are typically told the illness couldn’t possibly be related to the vaccine – it is just a “coincidence” say most pediatricians. Only the most extreme, dramatic and life-threatening vaccine reactions end up in federal vaccine court—the ones where the “dots” are easily connected. Unfortunately, at that point the damage is already done, and all too often it’s permanent.

The CDC’s VAERS database (Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System)4 lists 8,000 different adverse vaccine reactions, from localized swelling and anaphylactic shock to autism, coma and death.5 Because of the factors already discussed, the actual number of reactions is probably much higher than the database reports. The vast majority of adverse reactions are never reported.

Government’s Best Kept Secret: The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program

Given the furor that erupts when anybody publicly questions vaccine safety, you would think that US government officials are certain that vaccines are safe for everyone. But in reality, they’ve known about serious vaccine risks for decades and they know that some people are more susceptible to having vaccine reactions that lead to permanent injuries and death.

At the insistence of vaccine manufacturers pressing Congress for a shield from vaccine injury lawsuits, 30 years ago Congress established the federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP). Vaccine injury cases are adjudicated in the US Court of Claims, also known as “Vaccine Court.”6 The VICP is supposed to provide non-adversarial, expedited financial compensation for vaccine victims according to provisions in the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act,7 which absolved vaccine manufacturers, pediatricians and other vaccine providers of nearly all responsibility and liability for vaccine injuries and deaths.

Unfortunately, two out of three vaccine victims applying to the VICP are turned away empty-handed. Very few families ever see a dime from this program, or they have ridiculously long waits for their cases to be heard and settled. Many parents are unaware that the compensation program even exists and miss the short filing deadlines for filing a vaccine injury claim in the VICP (two years following a vaccine death and three years following the first symptom of a vaccine injury).

The families seeking compensation are in vaccine court not because they were opposed to vaccination but because of what happened when they DID vaccinate their children. In the documentary “Bought,” vaccine safety activist Dawn Loughborough says this about VICP:

“We used to have this idea we were protecting children from infectious diseases. And we created the National Vaccine program with children in mind, but somewhere in time protecting the program became more important than what’s happening to our children.”

Do No Harm?

Another issue standing in the way of ensuring that pharmaceutical products licensed by the FDA are safe is ensuring that those who are involved in the licensing and safety monitoring process are free from conflicts of interest. For example, there is evidence that individuals with ties to the pharmaceutical industry occupy a significant number of seats on FDA advisory committees that review new prescription drug licensing applications.

Apparently, conflicts of interest are rampant with a recent published study8 revealing that on average, 13 percent of the members of FDA advisory committees in the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) have a financial interest in the company whose drug is up for committee review. The Precautionary Principle—establish safety first—has been replaced with do whatever it takes to rush a drug to market.

Then, when it has been found to cause severe and sometimes fatal health outcomes, like Vioxx, health officials simply deal with the fallout later. And then there is the pharmaceutical lobby, arguably the most powerful lobby in Washington with more than 600 lobbyists doling out funds to political candidates of both parties—in exchange for their loyalty, of course. This is why getting anything done in Congress that the drug industry doesn’t want done is next to impossible.

Please Share Your Story

It’s about time we had some good science to accurately assess how many people are being injured by vaccines, and who is most at risk.  The vaccine injured cannot be swept under the rug like nothing more than “statistically acceptable collateral damage” from one-size-fits-all vaccination policies.

If you or a family member has suffered a serious vaccine reaction, injury, or death, please report it and talk about it. If we don’t share information and experiences with one another, then everybody feels alone and afraid to speak up. If you have a different perspective on a vaccine story that appears in your local newspaper, write a letter to the editor. Make a call to a radio talk show that is only presenting one side of the story. We cannot allow the drug companies and medical trade associations funded by drug companies, or public health officials promoting vaccine mandates, to dominate the conversation.

Protect Your Right to Informed Consent and Defend Vaccine Exemptions

With all the uncertainty surrounding the safety and efficacy of vaccines, it’s critical to protect your right to make independent health choices and exercise voluntary informed consent to vaccination. It is urgent that everyone in America stand up and fight to protect and expand vaccine informed consent protections in state public health and employment laws. The best way to do this is to get personally involved with your state legislators and educating the leaders in your community.

THINK GLOBALLY, ACT LOCALLY. 

National vaccine policy recommendations are made at the federal level but vaccine laws are made at the state level. It is at the state level where your action to protect your vaccine choice rights can have the greatest impact. It is critical for EVERYONE to get involved now in standing up for the legal right to make voluntary vaccine choices in America because those choices are being threatened by lobbyists representing drug companies, medical trade associations, and public health officials, who are trying to persuade legislators to strip all vaccine exemptions from public health laws.

Signing up for NVIC’s free Advocacy Portal at http://www.NVICAdvocacy.org gives you immediate, easy access to your own state legislators on your Smart Phone or computer so you can make your voice heard. You will be kept up-to-date on the latest state bills threatening your vaccine choice rights and get practical, useful information to help you become an effective vaccine choice advocate in your own community. Also, when national vaccine issues come up, you will have the up-to-date information and call to action items you need at your fingertips.

So please, as your first step, sign up for the NVIC Advocacy Portal.

Share Your Story with the Media and People You Know

If you or a family member has suffered a serious vaccine reaction, injury, or death, please talk about it. If we don’t share information and experiences with one another, everybody feels alone and afraid to speak up. Write a letter to the editor if you have a different perspective on a vaccine story that appears in your local newspaper. Make a call in to a radio talk show that is only presenting one side of the vaccine story.

I must be frank with you; you have to be brave because you might be strongly criticized for daring to talk about the “other side” of the vaccine story. Be prepared for it and have the courage to not back down. Only by sharing our perspective and what we know to be true about vaccination will the public conversation about vaccination open up so people are not afraid to talk about it.

We cannot allow the drug companies and medical trade associations funded by drug companies or public health officials promoting forced use of a growing list of vaccines to dominate the conversation about vaccination. The vaccine injured cannot be swept under the carpet and treated like nothing more than “statistically acceptable collateral damage” of national one-size-fits-all mandatory vaccination policies that put way too many people at risk for injury and death. We shouldn’t be treating people like guinea pigs instead of human beings.

Connect with Your Doctor or Find a New One That Will Listen and Care

If your pediatrician or doctor refuses to provide medical care to you or your child unless you agree to get vaccines you don’t want, I strongly encourage you to have the courage to find another doctor. Harassment, intimidation, and refusal of medical care is becoming the modus operandi of the medical establishment in an effort to stop the change in attitude of many parents about vaccinations after they become truly educated about health and vaccination.

However, there is hope.

At least 15 percent of young doctors recently polled admit that they’re starting to adopt a more individualized approach to vaccinations in direct response to the vaccine safety concerns of parents. It is good news that there is a growing number of smart young doctors, who prefer to work as partners with parents in making personalized vaccine decisions for children, including delaying vaccinations or giving children fewer vaccines on the same day or continuing to provide medical care for those families, who decline use of one or more vaccines.

So take the time to locate a doctor, who treats you with compassion and respect and is willing to work with you to do what is right for your child.

In her recent article she makes a very stark warning that by the year 2025, half of all American children could have autism. That’s an alarming increase over one decade.

She claims it all comes down to a chemical called glyphosate, commonly found in Monsanto’s herbicide, RoundUp. So what happens when a human comes in contact with that chemical?

  • Sulforaphane, found in high amounts in broccoli sprouts, can significantly improve your blood pressure and kidney function by normalizing a process called DNA methylation
  • Preliminary research suggests sulforaphane may also be of particular benefit for those with autism—improving verbal communication and decreasing repetitive behaviors
  • Broccoli has the ability to affect gene expression and promote detoxification of harmful environmental pollutants
  • Sulforaphane influences bacteria as well. Broccoli sprouts have been shown to inhibit Helicobacter pylori, the bacteria thought to cause gastric ulcers. H. pylori may also play a role in autism
  • Autistic children are known to have higher levels of environmental toxins in their system, as well as fewer health-promoting gut bacteria

Science has proven time after time that food is potent medicine.  Broccoli, for example, has a solid scientific foundation showing it’s one of the most valuable health-promoting foods around.

For example, a compound in broccoli, glucosinolateglucoraphanin, produces a metabolite called sulforaphane that can significantly improve your blood pressure and kidney function1 by normalizing a process called DNA methylation.

Interestingly, preliminary research suggests sulforaphane may also be of particular benefit for those with autism—improving verbal communication and decreasing repetitive behaviors.

Broccoli Compound May Improve Symptoms of Autism

While limited in scope, the study still shows that food is an important part of the treatment plan for autism, and can have a significant impact on behavior. A total of 44 boys and men diagnosed with autism were enrolled in the study.

Some received sulforaphane in capsule form, while the controls received a placebo. As reported by Time Magazine:2

“The compound was chosen because it can help trigger a heat-shock response, a series of biological events that protect cells from stress during fevers; some people with autism have been known to see improvement in regard to repetitive behaviors, for example, during fevers.

Around 80 percent of the participants had a history of experiencing the ‘fever effect.’”

Positive results were observed within as little as four weeks. Communication improved, as did symptoms of hyperactivity and irritability. By the end of the 18-week study, about 50 percent of those receiving sulforaphane experienced improved ability to interact socially.

About one-third of those treated did not have any noticeable results however, so more research needs to be done to ascertain how and why the compound works in certain cases. Still, considering the many health benefits of broccoli, there’s certainly no reason to avoid it.

On the contrary, I believe part of the reason for its beneficial effect on autistic symptoms may be related to its ability to affect gene expression, inhibit certain detrimental gut bacteria, and promote detoxification of harmful environmental pollutants.

All of these factors play a role in autism, and pretty much anything that will have a beneficial effect on them is likely to be useful to some degree.

Sulforaphane Benefits Gene Expression and Gut Health

Sulforaphane is an organic sulfur compound found in cruciferous vegetables, including broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, horseradish, and arugula—but broccoli sprouts is the richest source.

Sulforaphane has been shown to have antimicrobial properties. It also kills cancer stem cells, which slows tumor growth. As noted earlier, it also normalizes DNA methylation, which plays a role in a number of diseases, including hypertension, kidney function,3 gut health,4 and cancer.

In simple terms, DNA methylation5 is the process by which a methyl group (one carbon atom attached to three hydrogen atoms) is added to part of a DNA molecule.

This is a crucial part of normal cell function as it allows cells to “remember who they are and where they have been.” DNA methylation also suppresses viral- and other disease-related gene expression.

Sulforaphane influences bacteria as well. For example, broccoli sprouts have been shown to inhibit Helicobacter pylori, the bacteria thought to cause gastric ulcers. Interestingly, H. pylori may also play a role in autism.

It is widely known that autistic children tend to suffer from gastrointestinal (GI) problems, with those experiencing the worst GI problems often having the most severe cases of autism.

In one study,6 researchers analyzed the gut microflora of 20 healthy and 20 autistic children using fecal samples, and found distinct differences between the two groups.

Specifically, those with autism had reduced levels of Prevotella, Coprococcus,and Veillonellaceae, compared to healthy children. These belong to groups of carbohydrate-degrading and/or fermenting microbes, and may be critical for healthy interactions between microbes in the gut.

The presentation below discusses the links between H. pylori and autism and language delays, noting that H. pylori can instigate leaky gut and influences genes associated with the speech disorder apraxia7 that affects many autistic children.

Other Health Benefits of Broccoli

Other research has shown that broccoli can be helpful in the prevention of:

  • Heart disease
  • UV radiation damage to your skin when applied topically8
  • Osteoarthritis9101112
  • Allergies13
  • Diabetes14

The sulforaphane from broccoli plays a role in activating more than 200 different genes, which accounts for its varied effects. Fortunately, you don’t have to consume vast volumes of broccoli to reap its benefits. In one study,15 just four servings of broccoli—about 10 broccoli spears—per week was found to protect men from prostate cancer.

Broccoli Sprouts Combat Exposure to Environmental Pollutants

Another major benefit of broccoli sprouts relates to its ability to detox pollutants, as demonstrated in recent research.161718  This is important for virtually everyone these days, but especially women planning a pregnancy. Autistic children are known to have higher levels of environmental toxins in their system, and this underlying toxic burden plays a significant role.

For example, one recent study19, 202122 found that every one percent increase in genital malformations in newborn males within a particular US county was associated with a 283 percent increased rate in autism. According to the researchers, genital malformations are signs of exposure to harmful toxins.

The correlation between genital malformation and autism in turn offer strong support for the notion that autism is the result of parental overexposure to environmental toxins. Another study23 published last year also found that autistic children have markedly higher levels of toxic volatile organic compounds (VOCs). They also had fewer healthy bacteria, such as Bifidobacterium. With regards to the detoxifying powers of broccoli sprouts, Time Magazine noted that:24

“Broccoli sprouts specifically are a source of glucoraphanin, which creates sulforaphane when chewed or swallowed. That compound accelerates the body’s ability to detoxify from various pollutants…”

The three-month long study included about 300 Chinese men and women living one of the most polluted areas of China, a rural community in the Jiangsu Province. The test group drank half a cup a day of a beverage consisting of sterilized water, pineapple and lime juice, with dissolved freeze-dried broccoli sprout powder. The control group drank the same mixture without the addition of the sprouts.

After urine and blood tests were collected and analyzed, the researchers found that the test group, who received the broccoli sprout powder, excreted far greater levels of two carcinogens. Excretion of benzene increased 61 percent, and the rate of excretion of acrolein increased by 23 percent. Benzene is usually found in car exhaust fumes, but can also be ingested viasoda, where it can form from benzoate salt—used as a preservative. Acrolein forms from the breakdown of certain indoor air pollutants, from the burning of organic matter such as tobacco, and the burning of fuels like gasoline.

Factors That Likely Contribute to Autism

With autism spectrum disorder now affecting as many as one in 50 children,25 it seems reasonable to assume that there are MANY factors contributing to this problem. Evidence suggests it’s rooted in a combination of toxic overload and other aggravating factors, including but not limited to the following:

  • Gut dysbiosis, especially in combination with vaccines and their additives like mercury (thimerosal), aluminum, and others, which are known to damage your mitochondria—the powerhouses in your body’s cells that produce energy. Your gastrointestinal system is often referred to as your “second brain,” containing some 100 million neurons—more than in either your spinal cord or your peripheral nervous system.
  • Vitamin D deficiency. The link between vitamin D deficiency in pregnant women and the proportionate jump in autism has been highlighted by Dr. John Cannell. Vitamin D receptors appear in a wide variety of brain tissue early in the fetal development, and activated vitamin D receptors increase nerve growth in your brain. I believe vitamin D deficiency during pregnancy is a MAJOR contributing factor to autism, especially when you consider that vitamin D also helps in the detoxification of mercury. Without sufficient amounts of vitamin D, any subsequent toxic assaults—regardless of the source—will be further magnified.
  • Electromagnetic radiation (EMR) from cell phones, cell towers, and Wi-Fi devices, which can trap heavy metals inside of nerve cells, accelerate heavy metal toxicity, and hinder natural detoxification processes.
  • Microbial toxins, such as mold. Children with autism not only have overwhelmed detoxification pathways and often heavy metal toxicity, but, according to Dr. Klinghardt, their bodies are also frequently beset by toxic microbes, including neuro-borreliosis, and possibly other Lyme co-infections.
  • Mercury toxicity. Pregnant mothers may inadvertently contribute to their child’s toxic load via dental amalgams, 50 percent of which are mercury, a known neurotoxin.

Healing the Gut May Be Key for the Treatment of Autism

Getting back to the issue of food, while broccoli sprouts may certainly be useful, parents of autistic children would do well to consider implementing the GAPS diet. Women planning a pregnancy can also reduce their chances of having an autistic child by paying careful attention to their gut health, along with avoiding toxic exposures of all kinds.

GAPS stands for Gut and Psychology Syndrome, pioneered by neurologist Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, who successfully reversed her son’s autism. In her research, she discovered that nearly all mothers of autistic children have abnormal gut flora, which is significant because babies inherit their gut flora from their mothers at the time of birth. Establishing normal gut flora in the first 20 days or so of life plays a crucial role in the maturation of your baby’s immune system.

Babies who develop abnormal gut flora have compromised immune systems, which put them at higher risk for suffering vaccine reactions. If your baby has suboptimal gut flora, vaccines can become the proverbial “last straw” — the trigger that “primes” his/her immune system to develop chronic health problems.  This helps explain why not every child is damaged by vaccines, and why autism rates keep rising. More children are now born with elevated toxicity levels and damaged gut flora right from the start… Such is the legacy of our increasingly toxic world. Tack on a few exacerbating factors, and the child’s body simply cannot handle the onslaught.

The best way to prevent GAPS is for the mother to avoid all processed foods, sugar, antibiotics (including CAFO meats and antibacterial soaps) and birth control pills prior to conception as these cause yeast and fungi to grow and also cause leaky gut. This can then be followed by breastfeeding and avoiding the use of antibiotics during (intrapartum) and after delivering.  It’s also a good idea to make sure your baby’s microbiome is healthy before getting any vaccinations. Fortunately, it’s possible to rather inexpensively identify GAPS within the first weeks of your baby’s life, which can help you make better-informed decisions about vaccinations, and about how to proceed to set your child on the path to a healthy life.

The entire process for identifying children who would be at risk for developing autism from a vaccine is described in her bookGut and Psychology Syndrome, but to sum it up, in her practice she starts out by collecting a complete health history of the parents, and their gut health is assessed. Then, within the first few days of life, the stool of the child can be analyzed to determine the state of her gut flora, followed by a urine test to check for metabolites, which can give you a picture of the state of your child’s immune system. These tests are available in most laboratories around the world and cost a very reasonable amount, about $80 to $100 per test.

In my view, it is absolutely VITAL to perform this analysis BEFORE you consider vaccinating your child. If the test results are normal, the likelihood of autism after vaccines is dramatically reduced. If you find that your baby has abnormal gut microflora, or begins to develop symptoms of autism a year or two later, the GAPS program should be started immediately, as the younger the child is when you start the treatment, the better the results.

As Fecal Transplants Cure and Save Lives, FDA Classifies Poop as a Drug and Restricts It

coconut oil bacteria As Fecal Transplants Cure and Save Lives, FDA Classifies Poop as a Drug and Restricts It

Health Impact News

Back in January of this year (2013), we reported how the effective treatment of using fecal transplants was curing patients with Clostridium difficile (C. diff) with outstanding success. C. diff is a bacteria that is resistant to antibiotic treatment and has become epidemic in hospitals and nursing homes. A study published the New England Journal of Medicine, that made mainstream news back in January, showed how Fecal Microbiata Transplant (FMT) was curing C. diff at an incredible rate. FMT is therapy that puts fecal matter from a person with good gut flora directly into the colon of the sick person. It has literally saved people’s lives.

Many doctors around the world have been experimenting with this therapy for diseases other than C. diff, including bowel diseases such as Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn’s Disease. Some of the doctors that we quoted back in January who were utilizing this therapy in the U.S. were becoming concerned that the FDA might step and try to control this therapy, in spite of the fact that there are virtually no recorded major side effects, only testimonies to very dramatic healings.

Well unfortunately, that is exactly what the FDA did. Because doctors were using fecal matter from healthy people to cure C. diff and other diseases, it stepped in and declared fecal matter as a “drug.” Since it is a drug they have not approved, it now officially in Phase 1 of the drug research and approval process, a process that can take many years. In a letter from the FDA to the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA), they stated that FMT is not to be used by physicians, other than in life saving situations subject to a formal IND (Investigational New Drug) application.

So why would the FDA make the ridiculous claim that someone’s healthy poop is a drug, and start regulating a safe therapy that has saved so many lives, cured so many with bowel diseases, and has virtually no recorded adverse effects? It is far more effective and far more safe than drugs used for the same conditions – not even close!

The Microbiome

Ever since mainstream medicine has decided that probiotic therapy is not only effective, but necessary in overcoming our society’s addiction to antibiotics, there has been increased interest in understanding what is referred to as the “microbiome.” While the best probiotic supplements currently on the market might have 20 to 30 strains of “friendly” bacteria, each person’s own collection of bacteria numbers in the trillions, and with what many researchers consider over 20,000 different species of bacteria.

So isolating and mapping specific bacteria to specific diseases is a huge undertaking, and modern medicine is attempting to do just that, similar to the genome project. As this microbiome research advances, expect new synthetic drugs on the market advertised as treating specific diseases and working similar to FMT, which of course cannot be patented.

With FMT, however, all the guesswork of trying to figure out which bacteria is effective in curing is bypassed by a simple procedure: take ALL of the microbiome from a healthy person via their feces, and transplant that into the sick person. It is nature’s ultimate “super probiotic.” It is simple, affordable, and effective. So simple, that there is a group of people on the Internet doing it at home now. And these are formerly very sick people who are now healthy, or on the road to recovery where they can function as “normal” people again.

This must make the pharmaceutical companies rage with jealousy! So of course the first step was to get the FDA to step in and stop doctors from doing this routinely, and put restrictions on it by classifying it as a drug.

The other step they are taking is securing funding for research so they can develop drugs that they hope will work in similar ways. Here is one announcement published on a drug industry website just a few days ago:

Janssen Biotech and Second Genome have entered into an agreement to focus on microbiome drug discovery, Second Genome announced in a press release. With the goal of advancing novel drug targets, the agreement is focused on therapeutic mechanisms in ulcerative colitis mediated by the bacterial ecosystem living within the human gut, referred to as the microbiome. Second Genome will apply its microbiome modulation discovery platform to characterize the role of bacterial populations in ulcerative colitis.

The microbiome is an emerging area of interest involving research, such as the National Institute of Health’s Human Microbiome Project, to evaluate the symbiotic relationship that bacteria have developed in the human body. “Foundational microbiome research over the past several years has demonstrated that alterations to the microbiome are central to the development of inflammation and metabolic disorders,” said Peter DiLaura, president and CEO at Second Genome, in the press release. (Full story here.)

So while doctors, published research, and home users have already successfully used FMT therapy with miraculous results, our government agencies are spending our tax dollars to restrict this simple and inexpensive therapy so that drug companies can develop patented and profitable drugs instead.

Will the government go after home FMT patients next? While many doctors are now prohibited from practicing FMT, many of them will still help their patients screen potential donors through laboratory tests so they can practice FMT at home safely. These home users of FMT are still a small group, but if they become so large that they take a dent out of the market of competing drugs, could the FDA start going after home FMT users as well?

Testimonials

One of the more popular blogs that gives people instructions on how to do FMT at home also has several testimonies recorded. It is run by Tracy Mac of Australia (outside the reach of the U.S. FDA): The Power of Poo. She has an active Facebook Group that is by invitation only to protect members’ privacy. She has links to how-to videos. There are many other recorded testimonies of FMT cures from home treatments found on the Internet, including this one who states:

 I have not had a flare since then, nor am I taking any prescription immune-suppressing or anti-inflammatory drugs, herbal supplements or pro-biotic,s nor am I on a highly restricted diet like Gluten-Free or the Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD).

But don’t think all the evidence of FMT is purely anecdotal. There is plenty of published research in this area now, and the therapy is nothing new. There is documentation that the therapy is at least 1,700 years old in Chinese Traditional Medicine!

The range of illnesses and diseases that FMT can prove beneficial is almost limitless, as modern research reconfirms that most of our physical health begins in the gut, with our micro flora and our own “micorbiome.” While most of the experience and research in modern times has focused on C. diff and bowel diseases, here is a partial list of illnesses that FMT has also been used for, or could potentially be used for:

The only thing probably holding back this simple, natural and ineffective treatment from being used by more people is the “ick” factor. But, if you are one of the many thousands of people suffering from bowel diseases that makes life almost unbearable, the hope for a better life is a great trade-off for the uncomfortable feelings of using someone else’s poop.

I don’t know how the FDA can get away regulating your fecal material as a drug, and I hope some doctor will defy their tyrannical authority and challenge them in court. For those who don’t have healthy family members who can function as donors, a good donor screening program is essential for this therapy to reach its potential of healing so many people.

UPDATE: On June 17 the FDA released an announcement stating they will not require doctors to follow the full IND procedure as a requirement to administer FMT. But they are still claiming it is an unapproved drug.
