(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.

By Dr. Mercola

Fluoride is a toxic drug linked with an array of potentially serious health problems. Most recently, research linking fluoridated water consumption to thyroid dysfunction received attention in both British and American media.1,2,3,4

Evidence also suggests it may contribute to or exacerbate behavioral problems such as ADHD, by way of pineal gland calcification.

Despite irrefutable evidence of harm, the United States still adds fluoride to municipal water supplies reaching nearly 211 million Americans. As of 2012, more than 67 percent of Americans receive fluoridated water.5

Of those, more than 11 million people receive fluoride at or above what has been deemed the “optimal” level, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

In the UK, about 6 million Britons receive water with added fluoride. Meanwhile, a growing number of countries—including Germany, Sweden, Japan, the Netherlands, Finland, and Israel6—have ceased this hazardous practice.7

Water Fluoridation Promotes Thyroid Dysfunction, Study Warns

Water fluoridation has long been promoted as a safe and effective way to improve dental health—a claim that in reality has no firm basis in science. On the contrary, the evidence clearly suggests there are wide-ranging health hazards associated with fluoride exposure.

British researchers are now warning that 15,000 people may be needlessly afflicted with hypothyroidism in the UK as a result of drinking fluoridated water.8

In areas where fluoride levels in the water registered above 0.3 mg/l, the risk of having a high rate of hypothyroidism was 37 percent greater compared to areas that do not fluoridate. As explained by Vice.com9 and in the featured video above:

“The key to a healthy thyroid is iodine, which is generally absorbed through the blood and stored and regulated by the body in the thyroid gland… 

But because fluoride is more electronegative than iodine, it displaces it in the body, disrupting thyroid function and subsequently impacting hormone levels that keep metabolism in check. 

Numerous studies (including one from just last year10) have previously confirmed fluoride’s ability to promote and exacerbate iodine deficiency11…”

Recommended Fluoride Levels in US Is Twice the Level at Which Thyroid Function Can Be Affected

The US currently recommends a fluoride level of 0.7 mg/L,12 and thyroid dysfunction is also rampant in the US, where an estimated 20 million people are affected,13 so from a public health standpoint, it makes absolutely no sense whatsoever to medicate the entire population with a drug that can either induce or exacerbate this condition.

Additional side effects of thyroid dysfunction include weight gain and depression. An equally or more important side effect is harm to the fetus in hypothyroid pregnant women, which can result in lowered IQ and other neurological deficits.

Because of all of these effects, the researchers urge city councils to stop adding fluoride to their drinking water. According to lead author Stephen Peckham:14

“I think it is concerning for people living in those [high fluoride] areas. The difference between the West Midlands, which fluoridates, and Manchester, which doesn’t, was particularly striking. There were nearly double the number of [underactive thyroid] cases in the West Midlands. 

Underactive thyroid is a particularly nasty thing to have and it can lead to other long term health problems. I do think councils need to think again about putting fluoride in the water. There are far safer ways to improve dental health.” 

Dr. Spyros Mezitis, an endocrinologist at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City who did not participate in the study told WebMD:15

“Clinicians in the United States should emphasize to patients this association and should test patients for underactive thyroid. Patients should probably be advised to drink less fluoridated water and consume less fluoridated products, including [fluoridated] toothpaste.”

Endocrinologist Dr. Terry Davies, who is also a professor of medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, in New York City also agreed, saying that:

“This dramatic increase in thyroid dysfunction associated with fluoridation of the water supply adds to previous studies indicating that fluoride has an inhibitory effect on the thyroid gland. [The study] supports the argument that our water supply should be pure water and nothing else.”

How Is Water Fluoridation in the Public’s Best Interest?

Many fail to realize that fluoride is indeed a drug, and as such it is grossly inappropriate for it to be indiscriminately added to water supplies, as there’s no way to control who gets it, and in what dose.

Surely, protecting people from thyroid dysfunction—which can also raise your risk for cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, infertility, neurological harm to fetuses and infants, and other health problems—is of greater concern than protecting people from dental caries, which can be very effectively addressed in other, far safer ways…

Besides, the science behind fluoride’s purported dental benefits is flimsy at best, and has repeatedly failed to stand up to closer scrutiny. Mounting scientific evidence reveals that:

Outwardly visual signs of this condition include pitting and discoloration of your teeth, caused by long-term ingestion of fluoride during early tooth formation. In some areas, fluorosis rates are as high as 70-80 percent, with some children suffering from advanced forms. Dental fluorosis can be an indication that the rest of your body, such as your bones and internal organs, including your brain, has been overexposed to fluoride as well.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there is no discernible difference in tooth decay between developed countries that fluoridate their water and those that do not. Moreover, the decline in tooth decay the US has experienced over the last 60 years, which is often attributed to fluoridated water, has likewise occurred in all developed countries—most of which do not fluoridate their water.

  • Even topical application of fluoride may be largely ineffective. Research published in the journal Langmuir17 five years ago discovered that the fluorapatite layer formed on your teeth from fluoride is a mere six nanometers thick (about one ten-thousands’ the width of a strand of hair), which led the scientists to question whether this ultra-thin layer can actually protect your enamel and provide any discernible benefit, considering the fact that it is quickly eliminated by simple chewing. Other studies have concluded topical fluoride may be helpful.

Cavity Prevention 101

As I’ve discussed in previous articles, the best way to prevent cavities is not by adding fluoride, but by addressing your diet. Scientific American18 recently addressed this issue as well, noting that excessive sugar consumption is at the heart of the problem. According to Dr. Francesco Branca, Director of WHO’s Department of Nutrition for Health and Development: “We have solid evidence that keeping intake of free sugars to less than 10 percent of total energy intake reduces the risk of overweight, obesity and tooth decay.”

One of the keys to oral health is eating a traditional diet rich in fresh, unprocessed vegetables, nuts, and grass-fed meats. By avoiding sugars and processed foods, you prevent the proliferation of the bacteria that cause decay in the first place. Other natural strategies that can significantly improve your dental health is eating plenty of fermented vegetables doing oil pulling with coconut oil. Also make sure you’re getting plenty of omega-3 fats. The latest research suggests even moderate amounts of omega-3 fats may help ward off gum disease. My favorite source of high quality omega-3 fat is krill oil.

Fluoride Detrimentally Affects Many Tissues in Your Body

Many assume that the fluoride in drinking water (or in any other fluoride supplement) will somehow only affect your teeth. Unfortunately, this is simply not the case. According to one 500-page scientific review,19 fluoride is an endocrine disruptor that can affect not only your thyroid gland, but also your bones, brain, pineal gland, and even your blood sugar levels. There are more than 100 published studies illustrating fluoride’s harm to the brain alone, plus 43 more that directly link fluoride exposure to reduced IQ in children! Studies have also demonstrated that fluoride toxicity, caused by overexposure, can lead to:

Increased lead absorption Disrupted synthesis of collagen Hyperactivity and/or lethargy Muscle disorders
Bone cancer (osteosarcoma) Increased tumor and cancer rate Arthritis Skeletal fluorosis and bone fractures
Genetic damage and cell death Damaged sperm and increased infertility Inactivation of 62 enzymes and inhibition of more than 100 Inhibited formation of antibodies, and immune system disruptions

The Link Between Fluoride, Pineal Gland Calcification, and ADHD

A recent article20 by Frank Granett, R.ph, director of Clinical Pharmacy Operations at Behavioral Center of Michigan Psychiatric Hospital, and author of The American Epidemic and Over Medicating Our Youth, also addresses the issue of fluoride and pineal calcification, which can result in symptoms such as ADHD. He writes, in part:

“Located deep within the brain below the corpus callosum, which is the circuit connector for the right and left brain hemispheres, the pineal gland is responsible for the secretion of melatonin, the human body’s biological time-clock hormone regulating normal sleep patterns. More importantly, the pineal gland plays a critical role in the enzyme pathway for the production of brain neurotransmitters including serotonin and norepinephrine. Additionally, the body’s anti-oxidant defense system is optimized by healthy pineal tissue, which helps eliminate free-radical toxin accumulation in the body.”

Despite its diminutive size, your pineal gland tends to accumulate significant amounts of fluoride, which eventually causes it to calcify. Besides ADHD-like symptoms, pineal calcification may also play a role in Alzheimer’s and bipolar disease. Considering its effect on neurotransmitters, it’s also quite conceivable that it might promote depression and other neurological disorders. Granett also notes that studies have linked pineal calcification to precocious puberty in girls, attributed to abnormal melatonin secretion.

“Government agencies complicit in this public-health issue should re-evaluate the dangers fluoride poses in childhood behavioral development,” he writes. “Children and adults battling behavioral conditions should adopt an action plan to prevent the onset of pineal-gland calcification.” 

To help decalcify your pineal gland, Granett suggests:

  • Eliminating sugar, processed foods, and genetically engineered foods
  • Drinking purified water. To help break up the calcification, take one teaspoon of cold organic apple cider vinegar in water once per day
  • Consuming raw beets four times per week, as beets contains high amounts of boron that also help break up calcification
  • Taking an antioxidant supplement
  • Using non-fluoridated toothpaste

To Protect Your Health, Avoid Fluoride

No matter which scientific studies you examine or which population trends you view, the rational conclusion is that fluoride’s health dangers far outweigh the marginal dental benefits it mightoffer. Dental caries can be effectively prevented with means other than fluoridation, thereby avoiding the adverse effects of fluoride. It’s important to realize that fluoride is a cumulative toxin, which over time can lead to serious health concerns, from hypothyroidism to skeletal fluorosis and much more.

The neurological effects are particularly disconcerting. As mentioned, 43 human studies21 now link moderately high fluoride exposures with reduced IQ. We cannot afford to ignore such warnings! Water fluoridation needs to stop. The question is how. Despite all the evidence, getting fluoride out of American water supplies has been exceedingly difficult. It’s not impossible, however, as evidenced in areas that have successfully abolished water fluoridation.

According to the late Jeff Green, National Director of Citizens for Safe Drinking Water, a repeated theme in the cases where communities successfully removed fluoride from their water supply is the shifting of the burden of proof. Rather than citizens taking on the burden of proving that fluoride is harmful and shouldn’t be added, a more successful strategy has been to hold those making claims, and the elected officials who rely on them, accountable for delivering proof that the specific fluoridation chemical being used fulfills their health and safety claims, and is in compliance with all regulations, laws, and risk assessments already required for safe drinking water. To learn more, please see this previous article, which discusses these strategies more in-depth.

Help End The Practice of Fluoridation

There’s no doubt about it: fluoride should not be ingested. Even scientists from the EPA’s National Health and Environmental Effects Research Laboratory have classified fluoride as a “chemical having substantial evidence of developmental neurotoxicity.” Furthermore, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 41 percent of American adolescents now have dental fluorosis—unattractive discoloration and mottling of the teeth that indicate overexposure to fluoride. Clearly, children are being overexposed, and their health and development put in jeopardy. Why?

The only real solution is to stop the archaic practice of water fluoridation in the first place. Fortunately, the Fluoride Action Network has a game plan to END water fluoridation worldwide. Clean pure water is a prerequisite to optimal health. Industrial chemicals, drugs, and other toxic additives really have no place in our water supplies.

The research by Dr. Rory Collins has been widely used to justify putting millions of people on statin drugs to lower their cholesterol. However, after being challenged to release his data

icon1.png on side effects, he has changed his tune. Now he is claiming that there may be serious side effects but that he has not seen data on that – the same data that previously he said he would not share with others. Statins are the world’s best-selling pharmaceutical drugs of all time. Can you smell the stench?

Statin Drug Scandal: Cholesterol-lowering Drug Researchers Start Backtracking

Health Impact News Editor Comments

The cholesterol-lowering statin drug empire continues to crumble. This past Sunday (February 15, 2015) the Sunday Express in the UK published a headline story stating that Oxford professor Dr. Rory Collins, whose research had been used to support putting millions of patients on statin drugs, was reassessing the data behind those studies for possible drug side effects they might have missed previously.

According to the Express:

Although the original research looked at the effect of statins on the heart and considered cancer risks

image: http://images.intellitxt.com/ast/adTypes/icon1.png

icon1.png it did not examine other side effects.

A Pharmaceutical Scandal that Can No Longer Be Hidden?

This announcement by Dr. Collins is stunning, to say the least, and points to a massive cover-up and scandal related to statin drugs.

In 2014, Dr. Collins supported calls in the UK to put more people on statin drugs. However, he met with some opposition, and the British Medical Journal (BMJ) published a couple of articles documenting some of the side effects of statin drugs, which would call into question new government guidelines that would encourage physicians to put more patients on the already popular class

Dr. Collins criticized the  BMJ articles, and demanded that they retract them. According to Dr. Malcolm Kendrick:

He stated that these articles were irresponsible, worse than Andrew Wakefield’s work on the MMR vaccine, and that thousands would die if they were scared off taking their statins by such articles. (Source.)

(NaturalNews) Who needs personal medical choice when the United States Congress has arbitrarily declared that vaccines are unequivocally safe? In complete denial of all the published data showing that vaccines can damage the brain, the gut, the blood and the immune system, congressmen from both sides of the aisle are proposing new legislation that rules vaccines to be completely safe, mandating that everyone get them as a matter of “national security.”

Not getting vaccinated, according to the colloquially deceptive “Vaccines Save Lives” legislation, apparently threatens the safety and security of our nation, much like al Qaeda and ISIS terrorists. Allowing parents to decide whether or not their children need an injection of mercury, formaldehyde, aborted fetal tissue and attenuated live virus simply isn’t an option in the new medical order, which seeks to forcibly vaccinate the entire population for the good of the herd.

Introduced by Representatives Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), Charlie Dent (R-Penn.), Thomas Marino (R-Penn.) and Peter Welch (D-Ver.), and supported by dozens of other members of Congress, the legislation proclaims unambiguously that “there is no credible evidence to show that vaccines cause life-threatening or disabling diseases in healthy children or adults.” Based on this claim, lawmakers believe that everyone should be forced to get jabbed.

“Too many parents are turning away from sound science,” stated Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.), whose number two campaign contributor, according to OpenSecrets.org, is the pharmaceutical and health products industry. “Sound science is this: Vaccines save lives.”

Congress is lying about vaccine safety; MMR can cause chronic inflammation in virtually every system of the body, and may cause death!

That’s cute, Sen. Alexander, and it’s sure to keep the cash flow coming in from your top lobbyists. But actual sound science reveals that vaccines aren’t in any way 100% safe, nor are they guaranteed to prevent disease infection and spread. Between the years of 2005 and 2014, not a single child died in America from measles. During this same time period, however, at least 108 people died from the MMR vaccine.

The outlandish declarations made in the “Vaccines Save Lives” bill about the alleged effectiveness of vaccines also directly contradict the verbiage included in the MMR vaccine package insert, as printed by Merck, its manufacturer. Included in the insert is the following damning statement:

As for any vaccine, vaccination with M-M-R II may not result in protection in 100% of vaccinees.

Meanwhile, the following adverse reactions are listed as having been reported during MMR human clinical trials:

• Panniculitis (inflammation of the subcutaneous fat layer below the skin)
• Atypical measles (yes, the MMR vaccine can cause and spread non-wild-type measles)
• Vasculitis (inflammation of the blood vessels)
• Pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas)
• Diabetes mellitus
• Thrombocytopenia (low blood platelet count)
• Anaphylaxis (whole-body allergic reaction)
• Arthritis
• Encephalitis (inflammation and swelling of the brain)
• Febrile convulsions
• Aseptic meningitis
• Pneumonia
• Retinitis (inflammation of the retina of the eye)
• Epididymitis (inflammation of the coiled tube at the back of the testicle that stores and carries sperm)
• Death

Sign petition to stop Congress from eliminating personal medical choice with vaccines

The Alliance for Natural Health USA (ANH-USA) has created a petition calling on Congress to reject the “Vaccines Save Lives” legislation in preservation of personal medical choice, which is both a human and a God-given right.

(From http://www.thedailysheeple.com/measles-witch-hunt-anti-vax-parents-burned-at-the-propaganda-stake_022015)

Stories about measles outbreaks in New York, California, and Texas have been in the news lately, complete with fear-inducing headlines and pro-vaccine propaganda.

Naturally, those who choose to opt out of vaccinations tend to be blamed for outbreaks.

Let’s start with some facts about measles:

  • Measles (Rubeola) is a highly infectious respiratory disease spread by coughing, sneezing, or simply being in close contact with an infected person.
  • The incubation period from initial exposure to onset of the signature rash is between 7 and 18 days, with an average of 14 days.
  • Initial symptoms are typically a rising fever (which peaks around 103-105 degrees), cough, runny nose, red irritated eyes, and a sore throat with tiny white spots in the mouth. Those symptoms usually last about 2-4 days, and then the rash, which usually begins at the head and moves down the body, develops.
  • Measles tends to be more severe in adults.
  • Possible complications include bronchitis, ear infections, pneumonia, encephalitis, and death.

How many people die from measles or related complications each year?

The CDC reports that out of every 1,000 children who become infected with measles, one or two die. The disease is still rampant worldwide, with an estimated 20 million cases each year. About 164,000 measles-related deaths occur each year, with more than half of those in India.

Let’s break that down more – how many people in the United States die from measles each year?

Some statistics from the CDC on recent outbreaks in the US:

During January 1–August 24, 2013, a total of 159 cases were reported to CDC from 16 states and New York City. Among the 159 cases, 7 (11%) persons required hospitalization, including four patients diagnosed with pneumonia. No deaths were reported.

In 2011, a provisional total of 222 measles cases were reported from 31 states. Among the 70 (32%) measles patients who were hospitalized, 17 (24%) had diarrhea, 15 (21%) were dehydrated, and 12 (17%) had pneumonia. No cases of encephalitis and no deaths were reported.

Statistics for 2012 and 2010 are not currently available on the CDC website. If there were any measles outbreaks or related deaths during those years, it is safe to assume the information would be posted on the website.

Vaccine proponents will claim that the measles immunization is to thank for the lack of deaths from the disease in the United States. But is that accurate?

Dawn Babcock Papple crunched the numbers and analyzed the results in an article for VaxTruth:

Prior to the vaccine, 3-4 million cases of measles occured in the United States each year. <—True.

Also true, however, is that of those 3-4 million cases, only about 450 people died each year from it in the years before the vaccine.

I have figured out the percentage of people who died from measles of all of the measles cases back then.  0.015%.  Suddenly, measles seems a little less scary doesn’t it?

Also, consider that in 1963, the population was 189,241,798. That means that prior to the vaccine, the percentage of the entire US population that died from measles was .000237%. 

There are over 6 billion people on the planet. That’s shown as  6,000,000,000 numerically. Correct me if you disagree, but when over 150,000 people die each day total,  is 540 people dying of measles each day really that outrageous? They’re counting on us not comprehending the vast population of our global society. 240,000 children in low income countries alone die each year of neonatal infection. 1.26 million people die each year from diabetes and yet they’re still pushing the high fructose corn syrup in school lunches.With vaccines, the US went from a .000237 PERCENT death rate  among the general population from measles in 1963 to a 0.000000% measles death rate.

In 1963, there were about 450 deaths from measles.Meanwhile, about 12,000 people died from stomach ulcers and the likes.  Just over 43,000 people died from car accidents in 1963. Over 700,000 people died from heart disease.

In 1963, you were more likely to be one of the 9200 people murdered that year than to die of measles. If you were born in 1963, you were more likely to die from a congenital disease than from measles. In 1963, it was about 46 times more likely for a child to die from a congenital malformation than for someone to die from the measles.

Frankly, in 1963, you were about 46 times more likely to kill yourself than you were to die from measles.

The Oxford Journal of Infectious Disease also pointed out that measles-related deaths were on the decline before the vaccine was available:

By the late 1950s, even before the introduction of measles vaccine, measles-related deaths and case fatality rates in the United States had decreased markedly, presumably as a result of improvement in health care and nutrition. From 1956 to 1960, an average of 450 measles-related deaths were reported each year (∼1 death/ 1000 reported cases), compared with an average of 5300 measles-related deaths during 1912–1916 (26 deaths/ 1000 reported cases).

Now, for some facts about the measles vaccine, from the National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC):

  • One measles containing vaccine is currently being used in the U.S. – a combination measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) live virus vaccine. The CDC recommends children get between 12 and 15 months of age with a second dose given between 4 and 6 years old.
  • Common side effects from the MMR vaccine include low-grade fever, skin rash, itching, hives, swelling, reddening of skin, and weakness. Reported serious adverse reactions following MMR vaccination include seizures, brain inflammation and encephalopathy; thrombocytopenia; joint, muscle and nerve pain; gastrointestinal disorders; measles like rash; conjunctivitis and other serious health problems;
  • As of March 1, 2012, there have been 898 claims filed in the federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) for injuries and deaths following MMR vaccination, including 56 deaths and 842 serious injuries.
  • Using the MedAlerts search engine, as of July 9, 2012 there have been 6,058 serious adverse events reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) in connection with measles vaccine since 1990, with over half of those occurring in children 3 and under.

I’m not a scientist, but I don’t think it takes an advanced degree to deduce that getting the measles vaccine just might be more dangerous than contracting the disease itself.

In fact, what was once a benign childhood disease might be a bigger problem BECAUSE the availability of the vaccine has become widespread, as Lawrence Solomon of Financial Post suggests:

In the pre-vaccine era, when the natural measles virus infected the entire population, measles — “typically a benign childhood disease,” as Clinical Pediatrics described it — was welcomed for providing lifetime immunity, thus avoiding dangerous adult infections. In today’s vaccine era, adults have accounted for one quarter to one half of measles cases; most of them involve pneumonia, one-quarter of them hospitalization.

Also importantly, measles during pregnancies have risen dangerously because expectant mothers no longer have lifetime immunity. Today’s vaccinated expectant mothers are at risk because the measles vaccine wanes with time and because it often fails to protect against measles.

Vaccinated mothers have little antibody to pass on — only about one-quarter as much as mothers protected by natural measles — leaving infants vulnerable three months after birth, according to a study last year in the Journal of Infectious Diseases.

The NVIC backs up Solomon’s points:

Evidence has been published in the medical literature that vaccinated persons can get measles because either they do not respond to the vaccine or the vaccine’s efficacy wanes over time and vaccinated mothers do not transfer long lasting maternal antibodies to their infants to protect them in the first few months of life.

If you ask people who had measles as a child what the disease was like, they will likely tell you that it wasn’t exactly an enjoyable experience, but they survived – and came out with lifelong, natural immunity. Kevin Brooker of the Calgary Herald wrote a piece about that very thing a few days ago, in which he recalled his experience with the disease:

Surely, I’m not the only oldtimer who finds it curious that cases of measles – even as few as one or two in a region – are now the stuff of news headlines. Has something changed about the disease that most of us got, then got over, then never thought about again? It would have been about 50 years ago, one year after the widespread introduction of the measles vaccine, that I walked into the kitchen, showed my mom my speckled belly, and said, “I think I have measles.”

Other than that, however, I don’t remember any details of my affliction, just that it came and went without much trauma.

And I certainly don’t remember my mother evincing any panic on that day of discovery. If measles has deadly properties, they were not part of the social dialogue back then. Mom did tell me one thing: “Well, once you get over it, you’ll never get it again.”

Despite all of these facts, the mainstream media continues to spin measles outbreaks into a “fringe parenting” issue, blaming the cases on “irresponsible, uneducated” people who opt out of vaccinations, but that’s hardly the truth:

According to a survey in Pediatrics, unvaccinated children in the U.S. have a mother who is at least 30 years old, who has at least one college degree and whose household has an annual income of at least $75,000. In the absence of studies showing vaccinated children to be healthier than those unvaccinated, the parents in these educated households have determined that the numbers argue against vaccination. (source)

A recent example of pro-vaccination media bias can be found in a recent Business Insider article, titled NYC Health Commissioner On Measles Outbreak: ‘We Must Continue To Remain Vigilant’.

The article begins with this:

“The New York City Department of Health has confirmed two new cases of measles, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to 26 — 12 children and 14 adults.”

Later in the same article, the TWO unvaccinated children were mentioned:

“If you’re current on your vaccinations, you’re in the clear. At least two of the infected children were purposely unvaccinated; most of the rest were too young to be fully vaccinated against measles.”

What about the 14 adults who were infected? The article does not state the vaccination status of those individuals, who represented more than half of those infected. And how many does “most” mean? The author states “most of the rest were too young to be fully vaccinated.” According to one report, only four of the children were too young to have received both shots. That leaves us with 6 children who presumably were fully vaccinated, yet still contracted the disease.

Then, this:

“Measles is considered ‘highly contagious,’ usually spread by coughing or sneezing — and people are contagious even before the telltale rash shows up. ‘If one person has it, 90% of that person’s close contacts will also become infected,’ the NYC Department of Health warns.”

90%?  Does that include those who were “properly” vaccinated? The article doesn’t clarify.

Perhaps the author is unaware of the source of an outbreak that occurred in New York in 2011.

Suspected patients and contacts exposed during a measles outbreak in New York City in 2011 were investigated. The index patient had 2 doses of measles-containing vaccine; of 88 contacts, 4 secondary patients were confirmed who had either 2 doses of measles-containing vaccine or a past positive measles IgG antibody.

This is the first report of measles transmission from a twice-vaccinated individual with documented secondary vaccine failure. (source)

Sort of puts a dent in the claim “If you’re current on your vaccinations, you’re in the clear,” doesn’t it?

And what about cases of outbreaks in which almost everyone who contracted the disease was fully vaccinated?

A study published in PubMed in 1987 covered a measles outbreak that occurred in Corpus Christi, Texas, in 1985. The conclusion of that study:

We conclude that outbreaks of measles can occur in secondary schools, even when more than 99 percent of the students have been vaccinated and more than 95 percent are immune.

The current outbreak in California has led to news articles about the “importance of vaccination.” Most of those stories include at least a brief suggestion that “unvaccinated” people are the cause of the outbreaks.

The article Who is Patient Zero? on OCWeekly.com discusses the current California outbreak, which, as of April 4, consisted of 49 confirmed cases. The author mentions that Orange County – with 21 cases – was hit the hardest. Of course, the fact that a few unvaccinated children were stricken ill had to be pointed out:

Of the OC five kids who came down with measles, none of them were vaccinated.

Then the other cases were casually mentioned:

The other 16 cases were adults, five of which are healthcare workers.

Were those adults vaccinated? Why wasn’t that information provided?

The article then reveals something quite significant, but it is only given this brief line and is not mentioned again:

State-wide, nearly half of this year’s measles cases are from unvaccinated children.

Notice the wording there? Why didn’t the author say “State-wide, nearly half of this year’s measles cases come from VACCINATED children?”

Pay close attention to what is being said, what is being omitted, and what is being twisted to suit a particular agenda in the mainstream media. The current anti-vaccination witch-hunt is a perfect example of the misleading, biased reporting that is rampant.

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?

Sane Vax Inc. Speaks Out about the FDA’s Decision

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) Diseases of the brain are rampant in America today, and evidence suggests that a popular class of pharmaceutical drugs may be largely to blame. They’re known as statins, and the science behind how they function in the body reveals that these powerful drugs gradually degrade the brain by depriving it of cholesterol, leading to memory problems, dementia and other similar conditions.

In his book Lipitor: Thief of Memory, Dr. Duanne Graveline, M.D., wrote about his horrific experience with statins, and how they caused him to suffer two transient global amnesia events as well as chronic neuropathy. The former astronaut and aerospace medical research scientist explains how these traumatic events were the direct result of statins altering his brain.

His good friend Dr. David Brownstein also highlighted the mechanics behind this damage on his blog, pointing out that statins work by poisoning an enzyme known as HMG-CoA reductase, which the body uses to produce cholesterol, adrenal hormones, sex hormones and memory proteins. HMG-CoA reductase is also responsible for maintaining cell energy, which is needed by every system of the body.

Artificially blocking or otherwise inhibiting this vital enzyme is a recipe for health disaster, explains Dr. Brownstein, which is why he advises against anyone taking statin drugs. He also questions why any cognizant doctor would prescribe them, knowing that as many as 3.6 million people have reported brain dysfunction as a result of their use.

“You can’t poison a crucial enzyme or block an important receptor for the long-term and expect a good result,” explained Dr. Brownstein in his book Drugs That Don’t Work and Natural Therapies That Do.

Statins destroy the body and they don’t even work

Based on the thousands of entries published in the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Adverse Events Database, statins have been linked to everything from short-term memory loss and disorientation to chronic depression and dementia. This same database reports well over 100,000 adverse events in other areas as well, which based on the 1-10% reporting rate probably translates into millions of people harmed by statins.

As we’ve reported in multiple instances, statin use is linked to liver damage, kidney poisoning, muscle pain and degradation, and heart failure, as well as many other health conditions. And the worst part is that statins have never even been shown to work as claimed, which means they’re both ineffective and highly destructive.

“Perhaps we could live with all these adverse drug reactions if statins significantly lowered the risk for cardiovascular disease. But, they don’t,” wrote Dr. Brownstein on his blog.

“Statins have never been convincingly shown to prevent a first heart attack in both men and women. In men, the best of the statin studies show a 1-4% reduced risk of preventing a secondary cardiac event. In women, the numbers are worse.”

This is highly disconcerting in light of calls by some medical professionals for statins to be handed out like candy, or even dripped into public water supplies alongside fluoride. This so-called “medicine” is wreaking havoc on public health, and it doesn’t even provide any legitimate therapeutic benefits. So why is it still on the market?

“These drugs frequently cause muscle damage, muscle cramps, muscle weakness, muscle aches, exercise intolerance (even in the absence of pain and elevated CPK — a muscle enzyme), sexual dysfunction, liver and nerve damage and other problems in 10-15 percent of patients who take them,” added Dr. Mark Hyman.

“They can also cause significant cellular, muscle, and nerve injury as well as cell death in the ABSENCE of symptoms.”
