Why Are We Still Vaccinating? 25 Questions From A Former Pro-Vaccine Advocate

I used to be pro vaccine.  I know the feeling of thinking others were just plain crazy and wrong for not vaccinating their children and themselves.  ‘Irresponsible!’ I said when pointing my finger.  I’d use the same old arguments about polio and small pox and how vaccines saved us from all those horrible diseases and just swallowing and regurgitating the propaganda I was brought up with.  It was only recently, in 2009 that I started questioning my long held beliefs and began digging in to the history, efficacy and safety of vaccines.  I was appalled at what I found and the recklessness of those government health agencies entrusted with our health and our children’s safety, and angry with myself that I had put my family’s health at risk by blind faith in others when I was ultimately responsible for the medical decisions of my family.

When I began to put this article together I specifically chose not to include research from or links to websites that are considered untrustworthy by most pro-vaxxers, sites such as Natural News, Mercola, etc. even though I personally trust those sites and much more than I would WebMd and for good reason [a].  Instead I chose to employ basic logic and also incorporate independent and .gov scientific studies-mostly peer review, journals, news from mainstream sources (that pro-vaxxers love and totally trust) and articles that link to other .gov scientific studies, as well as government statistical resources.  So, I started writing down questions and then looking for answers. I’ll admit, some of these questions have already been asked by others, but I just expanded upon it to form a helpful list.

I hope the following information helps you in your lifelong journey in search of health, vitality and truth in your own lives and your children’s lives.

1. Why are newborn babies vaccinated on their first day of life against a disease that is primarily transmitted sexually and by needles in drug users?
(Pregnant women are already tested for STD’s prior to birth so there’s no reason to give it to an infant). Interesting to note, of the few vaccines that still are given to infants and STILL has thimerosol in it is Hep B and DipTet (and Flu shot recommended to pregnant women).  So, the claim that it has been removed from all vaccines is a lie and misdirection. If they give it to all newborns then ALL the newborns are getting that thimerosol (mercury derivative).  “It was removed from many child vaccines in 2002 but remains in some vaccines (e.g., hepatitis B virus and)” Page 21.

2. Why are babies given vaccines to produce antibodies when they do not produce antibodies until after the age of 3 to 6 months?
They get the required antibodies from breastfeeding. These preliminary shots don’t work anyway according to leading immunologists (video) @30 sec mark.  The real reason for these early jabs is ‘parent training.’ (ibid)

3. Why does the government tell parents to delay breast feeding and get more vaccines when breast feeding babies produce higher levels of antibodies?

4. Why aren’t vaccine manufacturers held responsible when their product injures your child? Why would these companies need to be protected from the effects of such wonderful products?
(Look into Vaccine Injury Compensation Program .gov and VAERS)
The Supreme Court ruling exempting the vaccine manufacturers from all liability is done under the explicit understanding that they fall under the category “unavoidably unsafe products.”

5. Why have no double blind, placebo, randomized controlled trials been done on any vaccines?
This is standard with any other drug.

6. Why are we following the US vaccination schedule? We are the most vaccinated population on the planet with the highest rates of infant deaths/SIDS in the western world?http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2014/09/29/our-infant-mortality-rate-is-a-national-embarrassment/

7. Why are disease outbreaks occurring in populations with 90%+ vaccination rates? What about that ‘Herd Immunity’ guys?

8. Why are children vaccinated against these diseases still catching and spreading them?
http://www.thehealthyhomeeconomist.com/studies-show-measles-vaccine-spreads-virus/(see Johns Hopkins paper)

9. Why are we frightened of non-fatal illnesses that train a child’s immune system how to behave?

10. Why are vaccine manufacturers allowed to reduce antigens and insert cheap and toxic additives that aggravate the injection site?

11. Why do we need multi-dose vaccines if the number ONE priority of vaccine manufacturers is your child’s safety?

12. Why will no physician sign a written guarantee for a child’s safety prior to vaccinating them with products they insist you take and that they say are completely safe?

13. Why is there no outrage about the 3.1 billion dollars paid out in vaccine injury/death claims and yet they claim there is no correlation and they are perfectly safe? 

14. Why don’t people recognize from history that the most widespread and lethal diseases in the last 200 years were reduced due to cleaner drinking water, improved sanitation, nutrition, less overcrowded areas and better living conditions? 
Vaccines were introduced at points in time where every single disease was already declining, most almost completely gone. To give vaccines credit for global reductions in disease is like giving a band-aid credit for healing a wound that was already closing. Dr. Hans Rosling shows exactly how the health condition of nearly all countries of the world have improved with wealth, even 200 years ago, at the times where there no vaccines.

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 (Oxford Journal of Infectious Diseases).

15. Why do people keep parroting what they hear about ‘Herd Immunity?’
Herd immunity is a hilarious concept that assumes that 1) Vaccinated people are immune to the diseases for which they’ve been vaccinated, 2) Can not carry the diseases for which they are vaccinated/immune, 3) Because most of the people are vaccinated, other people around them can’t catch the disease. My favourite analogy for herd immunity is that if 95% of people in a building are wearing hard hats when the ceiling falls in, the 5% are protected. (credit Dr. Robert Murdoch)

16. Why are almost all pro-vaxxer adults we talk to not up to date on their adult vaccinations/boosters?

17. Why do pro-vaxxers ignore .gov scientific studies?

18. Why didn’t our government health agencies ever safety test thimerosol (a mercury derivative and adjuvant) since Lilly developed it in the 1920’s?
They used it in vaccines from 1930 to 2004! It still is in some vaccines such as the flu vaccine and others. Here is a 2 minute clip, from Congressional Hearings. The EPA themselves acknowledge the toxic effects of mercury:

19. Why is it that only 40% of health professionals receive the flu shot each year?  They must not believe in it.

20. Why? Instead of a mandatory vaccine law, why don’t they have a mandatory law passed to protect us from Iatrogenic Death? (Death by Doctor, 3rd leading cause of death!)
21. Why doesn’t the pro vaccination public admit that the vaccinated spread disease and stop blaming us?

22. Why do people still trust their government health agencies when they say vaccines are perfectly safe? 
With all the big pharma fraud cases, Merck, Glaxo Smith Kline, etc. and all the class action suits that come out several times a year for death/injury you see on tv commercials every week, combine that with the VICP and VAERS .gov statistics, and Iatrogenic Death statistics, why do people still trust their government health agencies when they say vaccines are perfectly safe? Having said that, why is government trusted at all since Democide statistics (death by government) show that nearly 300 million in this last century were killed by the state. Those are non-combatants.

23. Why do they put aborted fetal cells in Vaccines?  Also DNA from monkeys, chickens, human tumour cells?

24. Why is Aluminum being used as an adjuvant in vaccines when there are many .gov studies against it’s use as Toxic?
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4202242/ (Go to Section 1.2. The Toxic Effects of Aluminum as a Vaccine Adjuvant.  One of many aluminum studies)
25. Why do people think the government can’t get away with secret human testing of disease, drugs, and chemicals on us when they have done it and apologized for it numerous times?
When they put toxic ingredients in vaccines, food, drugs, water and our sky that have no long term safety studies by any government health agency, that is tantamount to human experimentation. It’s a crime under the Geneva Convention, Nuremberg Code and our own constitution, and against medical informed consent laws.

Bill Clinton apology for secret human experimentation
• http://www.nbcnews.com/id/41811750/ns/health-health_care/t/ugly-past-us-human-experiments-uncovered/#.VQDefeEYGgg
 http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12656420 (government study admitting experimentation of large populaces with aerosol vaccines)
Here’s a few more studies:

• Abnormal measles-mumps-rubella antibodies and CNS autoimmunity in children with autism. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12145534

“Autoimmunity to the central nervous system (CNS), especially to myelin basic protein (MBP), may play a causal role in autism, a neurodevelopmental disorder. Because many autistic children harbor elevated levels of measles antibodies, we conducted a serological study of measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) and MBP autoantibodies.

….over 90% of MMR antibody-positive autistic sera were also positive for MBP autoantibodies, suggesting a strong association between MMR and CNS autoimmunity in autism. Stemming from this evidence, we suggest that an inappropriate antibody response to MMR, specifically the measles component thereof, might be related to pathogenesis of autism.”

• Serological association of measles virus and human herpes virus-6
with brain auto-antibodies in autism. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9756729

This study is the first to report an association between virus serology and brain auto antibody in autism; it supports the hypothesis that a virus-induced autoimmune response may play a causal role in autism.

• Hypothesis: conjugate vaccines may predispose children to autism spectrum disordershttp://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21993250

“Conjugate vaccines fundamentally change the manner in which the immune systems of infants and young children function by deviating their immune responses to the targeted carbohydrate antigens from a state of hypo-responsiveness to a robust B2 B cell mediated response.

This period of hypo-responsiveness to carbohydrate antigens coincides with the intense myelination process in infants and young children, and conjugate vaccines may have disrupted evolutionary forces that favoured early brain development over the need to protect infants and young children from capsular bacteria.”

• Effects of diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis or tetanus vaccination on allergies and allergy-related respiratory symptoms among children and adolescents in the United States.

“The odds of having a history of asthma was twice as great among vaccinated subjects than among unvaccinated subjects. The odds of having had any allergy-related respiratory symptom in the past 12 months was 63% greater among vaccinated subjects than unvaccinated subjects. The associations between vaccination and subsequent allergies and symptoms were greatest among children aged 5 through 10 years.”

• Neurological Complications of Pertussis Immunization

Review is made of 107 cases of neurological complications of pertussis inoculation reported in the literature. The early onset of neurological symptoms was characteristic, with changes of consciousness and convulsions as the most striking features. The question of aetiology is considered and contraindications are discussed….as is the grave danger of further inoculations when a previous one has produced any suggestion of a neurological reaction.

• Hepatitis B vaccination of male neonates and autism diagnosis, NHIS 1997-2002.

“Findings suggest that U.S. male neonates vaccinated with the hepatitis B vaccine prior to 1999 (from vaccination record) had a threefold higher risk for parental report of autism diagnosis compared to boys not vaccinated as neonates during that same time period. Nonwhite boys bore a greater risk.”

• Immunological findings in autism.

“The immunopathogenesis of autism is presented schematically in Fig. 1. Two main immune dysfunctions in autism are immune regulation involving pro-inflammatory cytokines and autoimmunity. Mercury and an infectious agent like the measles virus are currently two main candidate environmental triggers for immune dysfunction in autism.”

Aluminum Studies:

• Do aluminum vaccine adjuvants contribute to the rising prevalence of autism?

“Our results show that: (i) children from countries with the highest ASD prevalence appear to have the highest exposure to Al from vaccines; (ii) the increase in exposure to Al adjuvants significantly correlates with the increase in ASD prevalence in the United States observed over the last two decades; and (iii) a significant correlation exists between the amounts of Al administered to preschool children and the current prevalence of ASD in seven Western countries, particularly at 3-4 months of age.”

• Aluminum hydroxide injections lead to motor deficits and motor neuron degeneration.

“…A second series of experiments was conducted on mice injected with six doses of aluminum hydroxide. Behavioural analyses in these mice revealed significant impairments in a number of motor functions as well as diminished spatial memory capacity.”

Aluminum Vaccine Adjuvants: Are they Safe?

Experimental research, clearly shows that aluminum adjuvants have a potential to induce serious immunological disorders in humans. In particular, aluminum in adjuvant form carries a risk for autoimmunity, long-term brain inflammation and associated neurological complications and may thus have profound and widespread adverse health consequences.  click for entire study

Aluminum-Induced Entropy in Biological Systems: Implications for Neurological Disease.

• Mechanisms of aluminum adjuvant toxicity and autoimmunity in pediatric populations.

• Aluminum adjuvant linked to Gulf War illness induces motor neuron death in mice.

The findings suggest a possible role for the aluminum adjuvant in some neurological features associated with GWI and possibly an additional role for the combination of adjuvants (Synergistic Toxicity).

• Aluminum in the central nervous system (CNS): toxicity in humans and animals, vaccine adjuvants, and autoimmunity.

• Biopersistence and brain translocation of aluminum adjuvants of vaccines.

“We previously showed that poorly biodegradable aluminum-coated particles injected into muscle are promptly phagocytosed in muscle and the draining lymph nodes, and can disseminate within phagocytic cells throughout the body and slowly accumulate in brain. This strongly suggests that long-term adjuvant biopersistence within phagocytic cells is a prerequisite for slow brain translocation and delayed neurotoxicity.”

• Autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (Shoenfeld’s syndrome): clinical and immunological spectrum.

“The activation of the immune system by adjuvants, a desirable effect, could trigger manifestations of autoimmunity or autoimmune disease. Recently, a new syndrome was introduced, autoimmune/inflammatory syndrome induced by adjuvants (ASIA), that includes postvaccination phenomena, macrophagic myofasciitis, Gulf War syndrome and siliconosis. This syndrome is characterized by nonspecific and specific manifestations of autoimmune disease. The main substances associated with ASIA are squalene (Gulf War syndrome), aluminum hydroxide (postvaccination phenomena, macrophagic myofasciitis) and silicone with siliconosis. Mineral oil, guaiacol and iodine gadital are also associated with ASIA.”

• Long-term Persistence of Vaccine-Derived Aluminum Hydroxide is Associated with Chronic Cognitive Dysfunction.

• Long-term follow-up of cognitive dysfunction in patients with aluminum hydroxideinduced macrophagic myofasciitis (MMF).

Thimerosal studies:

• Integrating experimental (in vitro and in vivo) neurotoxicity studies of low-dose thimerosal relevant to vaccines.

There is a need to interpret neurotoxic studies to help deal with uncertainties surrounding pregnant mothers, newborns and young children who must receive repeated doses of Thimerosal-containing vaccines (TCVs).

Information extracted from studies indicates that: (a) activity of low doses of Thimerosal against isolated human and animal brain cells was found in all studies and is consistent with Hg neurotoxicity; (b) the neurotoxic effect of ethylmercury has not been studied with co-occurring adjuvant-Al in TCVs; (c) animal studies have shown that exposure to Thimerosal-Hg can lead to accumulation of inorganic Hg in brain, and that (d) doses relevant to TCV exposure possess the potential to affect human neuro-development.

• Neurodevelopmental disorders following thimerosal-containing childhood immunizations: a follow-up analysis.

“The present study provides additional epidemiological evidence supporting previous epidemiological, clinical and experimental evidence that administration of thimerosal-containing vaccines in the United States resulted in a significant number of children developing NDs.”

• Neonatal administration of thimerosal causes persistent changes in mu opioid receptors in the rat brain.

“These data document that exposure to thimerosal during early postnatal life produces lasting alterations in the densities of brain opioid receptors along with other neuropathological changes, which may disturb brain development.”

• Persistent behavioural impairments and alterations of brain dopamine system after early postnatal administration of thimerosal in rats.

“These data document that early postnatal THIM administration causes lasting neurobehavioral impairments and neurochemical alterations in the brain, dependent on dose and sex. If similar changes occur in THIM/mercurial-exposed children, they could contribute do neurodevelopmental disorders.”

• Maternal Thimerosal Exposure Results in Aberrant Cerebellar Oxidative Stress, Thyroid Hormone Metabolism, and Motor Behaviour in Rat Pups; Sex- and Strain-Dependent Effects.

“Thimerisol exposure also resulted in a significant increase in cerebellar levels of the oxidative stress marker 3-nitrotyrosine… This coincided with an increased (47.0%) expression of a gene negatively regulated by T3… Our data thus demonstrate a negative neurodevelopmental impact of perinatal thimerisol exposure.”

• Administration of thimerosal to infant rats increases overflow of glutamate and aspartate in the prefrontal cortex: protective role of dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate.

Thimerosal, a mercury-containing vaccine preservative, is a suspected factor in the etiology of neurodevelopmental disorders. We previously showed that its administration to infant rats causes behavioral, neurochemical and neuropathological abnormalities similar to those present in autism.

Flu Vaccine during Pregnancy:

Influenza Vaccination during Pregnancy.

The ACIP’s recommendation of influenza vaccination during pregnancy is not supported by citations in its own policy paper or in current medical literature. Considering the potential risks of maternal and fetal mercury exposure, the administration of Thimerosal during pregnancy is both unjustified and unwise. Also, take note of the 71 references at the end of this study.

  1. I love love love this article. Well written. I am not only going to "share" this on FB, I am also going to duplicate and hand out copies. Excellent. Thank you for your thorough research.

  2. This is a great article and we will post it on our face book site. But as we so often do we have to also include a disclaimer regarding the animal testing mentioned in this article. Vivisection is a fraud. Extrapolation of experiments and drug/vaccine testing from humans to any other species is scientifically impossible because of physiological, metabolic, genetic and bio chemical differences between every species. It is very disappointing whenever natural health advocates use animal testing to prove a point. They are using the exact same flawed reasoning as the petrochemical/pharmaceutical industry does when they poison us after testing their toxins on animals which they, of course, know means absolutely nothing.

    • I agree Britt – Brian is the one who posted the article. If you'd like to speak with him about it, you can reach him through facebook – click the "f" under his author description below the article.

    • Maybe you can rephrase the question? I'm not sure if I understand your concern Britt, but I want to. Did I advocate for animal testing in the article?

      • Hi Brian, Britt was referring to the quotations of animal experiments used to give credence. Animal tests are used constantly to prove or disprove the safety/toxicity for human consumption of a product, depending on who foots the bill. The greedy poisoners and polluters know full well that their “studies” are bogus and are only done for legal reasons, to pad their literature and give the population a false sense of security. Every time we use animal experimentation to make our point, we further nail the unscientific premise into the consciousness of the reader. Otherwise a great article and contribution to a dire issue.

  3. I'm afraid this is a classic case of a little bit of knowledge being dangerous. As someone educated in the sciences, I can tell you your understanding of how vaccines are developed and tested is lacking. I can also tell you that your interpretation of the data and information you are passing on is biased and, due to your lack of any real knowledge of the subject, it is dangerous to flaunt your opinion as fact.
    An example is your highlighting of the lack of testing on pregnant women. This is because medicine and vaccines are not generally not tested on pregnant women as it may not be safe. Therefore, these treatments are not recommended for pregnant women, and these warnings are present on packaging as a precaution only, not because they are actually given to pregnant women.
    Another point raised was that people receiving the vaccine for chicken pox shouldn't mix with immune compromised people. A vaccine is a weakened form of the disease, so of course you shouldn't spread it to other people. Only logical, right? But even without taking a vaccine you can be a disease carrier, so this really is a moot point.
    I am not a fan, personally, of putting unnecessary chemicals in the body. I am a fan of preventing myself and my family from life threatening/debilitating diseases. Do not believe blindly. Do educate yourself, but not by reading a few factoids and thinking you have a PhD.

    • So are you saying its safe to administer a product to a pregnant woman that has never been tested on pregnant women? Currently, pregnant women are recommended to get the DTaP vaccine and Flu vaccine, none of which have been studied for safety for use during pregnancy and also since the years it has been recommended has no correlated with any less "outbreaks" or better fetal outcomes which the US ranks in at one of the lowest for compared to other developed countries with less aggressive vaccine use.

      • Sara, the post is TITLED '25 QUESTIONS.' As someone educated in reading comprehension, I can tell that you aren't interested in answering legitimate questions. You are simply attempting to force people to live by your beliefs without regards to their own personal safety.

      • actually, vaccines are being tested on pregnant women and i think its criminal: Maternal immunization in Argentina: A storyline from the prospective of a middle income country. (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26277071)
        I'm "old fashion" doctor who was tough in med school that pregnant women should have variate of goods, the food should be nutritionally dense and free of chemicals. and here we are: inject them with chemicals!
        some doctors are saying that we need to protect their babies from pertussis, but i want to ask them: who created this problem? why 2 month old gets the pertussis?
        we (doctors and big pharma) created this problem! we immunize kids and shift the disease burden to too young ( to young to be immunized) kids. also, they should be protected by maternal antibodies (from the milk), but we immunized mothers when they were 15 y.o. and by the time they are pregnant antibodies from the vaccination are gone. they are not protected, neither their babies! Epidemiologists were talking about it many ears ago. we just ignored their warnings. now we are trying to install " family vaccination "program… its just does not make any sense!

    • Not very good examples to support your rather blanket complaint. The point that you took issue with on a person's ability to shed virus and infect others demonstrates you don't understand the reference. The issue taken here deals with the faulty logic of herd immunity (specifically concerning the modern rendition). Under the logic of herd immunity as it's applied to artificial immunization, it's asserted that by being immunized, you can protect the smaller part of the population made up of people who cannot be immunized (the thicker the barrier, the less likely one is to come into contact with the infectious agents). As the author points out, most vaccines aren't even designed to keep you from being infected by, carry and even spread that pathogen to others. Thus, the herd immunity hypothesis fails.

    • I'm a parent who is vaccine injured and I have family and friends that are vaccine injured also, I'm not sure the point in your comment except that I think you are saying that we as parents cannot have questions and we are incapable of understanding scientific studies that are meant for the layman and average person. I don't need a PhD to read a vaccine insert, studies, or to read up on vaccine injury and death statistics through VICP and VAERS .gov programs.

      I don't believe I flaunted any opinion, in fact I backed up most (if not all) of my claims/questions with NIH or other studies. You say that medicines are not tested on pregnant women, but that isn't true, they have been experimenting on pregnant women, children, ..all of us since the 1930's because there were NO safety tests on thimerosal, or etHg and meHg in combination with Al (aluminum) for it's synergistic toxicological and neurological effects. Hearings on thimerosal (2 min): https://www.facebook.com/RageAgainstVaccines/videos/vb.341081422696435/511368319001077/?type=2&theater

      Any live virus vaccines sheds, it's not a moot point, you can find this information from the CDC, the FDA, the EPA, there are NO studies saying that just because it's a weakened form of the disease that somehow it is less contagious, they DO shed to the unvaccinated. Any newly vaccinated child or adult should be quarantined. My question to you since you have also chosen to use some scientific language, do you have a PhD?

      Further Sarah, the best way for you to prevent life threatening illnesses from affecting your family is to eat very well and take care of yourselves, that is the best way. Vaccines did not save us from any disease, and if you had read my article in full, you would have seen how that is documented and is the truth.

    • Sarah jones, are you aware that there has never been a blind trial of a vaccine?
      Oh yes, they do give the vaccines to pregnant women. Pregnancy used to be a contraindication. My hairdresser's daughter-in-law "had to" get the flu vaccine while pregnant because she was a nurse. Her son has been plagued with the most horrific case of eczema since birth; he's now a toddler, with always a beet-read, splotchy face; he spent most of his babyhood with mittens on to keep him from scratching.

    • But Sarah, we fully understand WHY testing on pregnant women is not done for these vaccines, but they ARE RECOMMENDED FOR PREGNANT WOMEN. Every pregnant woman is told to get the flu and the DTap vaccine and the vast majority do as their doctor tells them, no questions asked. They most certainly are given to pregnant women DESPITE them not being tested b/c the testing would be "unsafe". Do you hear how crazy that is? It seems that you are the one lacking knowledge on that subject.

  4. I think this article has a lot of potential but lacks organization. The first link was broken, for instance. I would like to see commentary too under each of the the questions, not just links.


  5. I just mailt this article to a senator who's staff asked this evening
    the following

    "URGENT CALL TO ACTION – District 46 Assemblymember request for information
    ‪#‎sb277‬ ‪#‎cdcwhistleblower‬ ‪#‎parental rights‬ ******URGENT Constituents of ASM NAZARIAN their

    I just spoke to Talene her email is [email protected] I hope he will read it thoroughly
    This was the best I could send him such a brilliant piece of work 🙂 thanks Brian Rogers

    • Thank you, I'll be posting an article about Synergistic Toxicity and Vaccine Safety with lots of links real soon if LLF chooses to publish it. 🙂

  6. Sarah Jones is spot on. You love this article simply because it conforms to beliefs that you need validated. The article will collapse under scrutiny.
    For example, "virus-induced autoimmune response" as a cause of autism. I have no doubt that it is, but only if the response occurs during neural tube closure in gestation. We know that autism begins in prenatal development. A teratogen may initiate an inflammatory response whose end result is a hyper-synaptically connected brain.
    The notion that vaccines cause autism does not gel with conventional understanding of neurophysiology. Fact: the autistic brain differs from the neurotypical brain in its dense concentrations of excess synapse. A typical neuron has 10,000 synapses. A neuron in an autistic brain may have 15,000. A vaccine is not going to cause macro synaptic plasticity. Something needs to happen to the DNA before the brain develops. We know it's a teratogenic insult because there are a significant amount of studies with homozygous twins where only one sibling is autistic.

    • Michael Blue, tell that to all the parents with vaccine-injured kids. Just a couple of months ago I talked with a mom who had been pro-vaccine. Immediately following the MMR vaccine, her child started that high-pitched scream that signifies brain injury. From then on, her child, who had had mild autism, had severe autism.

      What about the senior scientist at CDC who revealed that the MMR indeed can cause autism? He was silenced by the CDC. There have been other whistleblowers as well.

  8. I saw this post today. I do not live in California, but for any residents that do please consider taking the time to do this.

    CA Residents. ******Call To Action****


    Okay team. Sorry I've been kind of quiet this week on the Daily. Been doing a lot of behind-the-scenes work on this. I spoke with an Assemblyman who opposes SB 277, and he shared some insight that I thought would be good for the masses to hear.

    Go to the CA Assembly website – http://www.Assembly.ca.gov , right in the middle of the page under Your State Assembly click on Find My Representative. You enter your address, and it will link you to your Assembly Member's page. Click on Email or Contact Us or whatever is on their page for that purpose, and there should be a little form that you fill out to indicate you oppose SB 277 and submit it to them. No arguments, no message points. Just that you oppose. That's it.

    What do they do with this info? They tally it up to understand how their constituents feel on issues. My Assemblyman said there are thousands against SB 277, and only a small number in favor. He listens to this info.

    You can only submit this info for a tally if you live in an Assembly Member's own district, as it asks you to enter an address that is in that district. So, if you haven't already, get on today and submit. Assembly Members have been asking our groups to do just this so they can hear from us, so let's do it. I just did it, and it took all of 45 seconds.

    More ideas and info to follow.

  9. Fpr too long Big Pharma has repeated the mantra that vaccinations are completely safe and effective. They have enriched themselves without any fear of prosecution. This is because Congress has granted them immunity from prosecution even if children die from vaccines. What a travesty!! Big Pharma will keep pushing for more vaccines and more mandates and more families will be irrevocably harmed.

    Unless this law is repealed, nothing will change. Please sign this petition to remove this immunity for vaccine makers.



  10. These are very important questions and the result is simple. The more you look around the more you will realize that there is indeed a global depopulation agenda and an agenda to keep the population of the USA as ignorant and docile as possible. The facts speak for themselves. And parents should be the most awake group of people in the world yet sadly the majority probably aren't.

  11. Brian, In your research did you ever find out why Diphtheria is still part of the DPT shot ? The Us hasn't seen a case of Diphtheria in years and years, as far as I can find.

  12. BRILLIANT article, well put together and impeccably researched. Thank you for this, and thank you for leaving the "anti vaxxer" sensationalist websites like NaturalNews out of it…..they do more harm than good with the "sky is falling" message even if they are right…every day working families don't buy into that stuff, they need the cold hard facts and no alarmist dogma involved or they walk away reflexively so THANK YOU for again for this…

  13. "When I began to put this article together I specifically chose not to include research from or links to websites that are considered untrustworthy by most pro-vaxxers, sites such as Natural News, Mercola, etc. even though I personally trust those sites and much more than I would WebMd and for good reason"

    Well, At least you're upfront about you anti-science bias.

    By the way, what makes you smarter than actual virologists and medical researchers? What do you know that they do not know?

    • How can you call someone 'anti-science' for asking questions about REAL 'risks' that vaccine companies themselves PRINT ON THEIR INSERTS?

      Do you think they just put those words there to 'take up space'?

      Vaccine injuries are REAL… PROVEN. By 'science.'

      As to what makes anyone smarter… the author didn't claim to be smarter. The author asked questions that are direct responses to what the 'virologists and medical researchers,' have already DOCUMENTED. And the difference is that the author's living isn't being threatened if he says anything that goes against the agenda and seeks to answer those questions.

  14. […] – Methodological Issues and Evidence of Malfeasance in Research Purporting to Show Thimerosal in Vaccines Is Safe. http://www.hindawi.com/journals/bmri/2014/247218/ – Research below represents under-reported, minimized and otherwise overlooked peer-reviewed data on adverse effects associated with vaccination. http://www.greenmedinfo.com/guide/health-guide-vaccine-research – Neurologic adverse events following vaccination. http://www.rescuepost.com… Source: livelovefruit.com […]

  15. I blog quite often and I really thaznk you for your content.
    This article has really peaked my interest. Iwill bookmark your blg and keep checking
    for new details about once per week. I opted in for your Feed as well.

  16. 1. According to the FDA, Thimerasol only remains in the flu vaccine. DipTet is the diptheria/tetanus shot, not a “flu shot recommended to pregnant women.” (http://www.fda.gov/BiologicsBloodVaccines/SafetyAvailability/VaccineSafety/UCM096228.)
    2. The sources for this one are (one) A crowd-sourced question and answer site (like Yahoo!Answers) (though that does not mean the answer given is incorrect) and (two) a website that appears to devote itself to vaccine myths (and similar). I can’t imagine these are “widely trusted” by pro-vaxxers.
    3. One of these sources is probably not widely trusted by pro-vaxxers, and refers to the paper on the NIH site (the other source). The study addressed lower immunogenicity and efficacy of vaccines in poor developing countries AND says that delaying breast-feeding at the time of immunization should be evaluated. That does not lead to “OMG the government is telling us to delay breastfeeding!”
    4. The case cited here specifically says that vaccines are not “unavoidably unsafe” so long as they are manufactured correctly and come with the appropriate warnings. Bruesewitz v. Wyeth LLC, 562 U.S. 223, 234 (2011). The law at issue protects manufacturers from a vaccine’s “unavoidable, adverse side-effects” because tort litigation was crippling the industry and making it difficult to provide affordable vaccines.
    5. Where a vaccine already exists for something, it strikes me as ethically suspect to give some kids a new vaccine and some kids no vaccine. On whom would you conduct this trial? If a vaccine does not exist for something, of course they conduct these types of trials.
    6. Neither of these sources say anything about vaccinations causing high infant mortality/sids.
    7. Source one talks about how vaccine efficacy rates are underestimated during outbreak investigations. Source two investigates a measles outbreak and appears to determine that less than 4% of the students in the outbreak contracted measles, which is in line with the 95% effective rate of the vaccine and with a 95% immunization rate, though it’s unclear whether any of the students were unvaccinated. Source three indicates that the pertussis vaccine fails in many people after a certain number of years (that explains why people are encouraged to get boosters/revaccinated).
    8. Because you can be a carrier of a disease even if you don’t catch it. Jesus.
    9. Seriously? Most and maybe even all of the diseases for which we are vaccinated can be fatal. Also, cite?
    10. Cite?
    11. Because multi-dose vaccines decrease the failure rate. Also, cite?
    12. No doctor claims that vaccines are 100% safe and that there is no way there will be any side effects. What would be the purpose of signing such a guarantee? There would be no benefit to the doctor. The only reason to ask a doctor to sign such a thing would be to use it in litigation against the doctor later. I’d say “Also, cite?” but there is no cite in existence for this ridiculous premise.
    13. Again, no one says they are “perfectly safe.” Again, Jesus.
    14. No. Wrong. Not addressing the youtube you cite or the blog, but the Columbia paper isn’t just about vaccines, it’s about medical intervention and the expansion of medical services and how they may not be responsible for most of the modern decline in mortality.
    15. Dumb analogy. Here’s a better one: 95% of people in a building are wearing hard hats that are 3ft wide, so the other 5%—who are not wearing hats but are standing UNDER the hats—are protected.
    16. Because people like to practice the “do as I say, not as I do” approach to life. They should be vaccinated/boosted. Everyone should be. I can say, “People should not smoke cigarettes” and it’s not less true if I’m an idiot and smoke cigarettes.
    I have to stop. This is so dumb. Just because you “cite” an article doesn’t mean it supports your position. Try reading them!

    • How can you possibly read this entire article and then attempt to defend this vaccine insanity?

      Your cop out of question 2 is typical. There is no justifiable reason in any respect whatsoever to inject EVERY newborn with HepB and all the junk also in there. NONE. So why is it done? Because it inculcates parents before they can ever question this colossal scam called vaccinology (it's a commitment tactic…pure psychology…health has absolutely nothing to do with that vile vaccine). My wife and I even got the pre-inculcation talk at the hospital tour before having our baby there ("here is where your child will have their first vaccine"). Disgusting brainwashing garbage. And, yes, we skipped that vaccine along with all the rest from here on in. If you can't see what is going on with this one glaringly obvious example, you will be blind to all the other evils.

      • If you are asking for information to the blogger's #5 that doesn't have a citation, the answer is that vaccines are labeled as a biologic, not a pharmaceutical. That's the loophole. If you watch the 6 o'clock news on ANY station, you are familiar with the commercials for pharmaceuticals blasting away nonstop. In some of these, I've started to notice "biologics" as the label for some of the Rx's listed. I honestly haven't read up on all the details regarding the differential definition of a biologic vs pharmaceutical, but I do know this is the classification of vaccines and they don't have to do the double blind placebo studies.

  17. Most illnesses reduced by cleaner water? Seriously? Explain India – no polio since 2011 and in the poorer areas disgusting hygiene.

    • There is plenty of OPV caused paralysis and death that is classified as a cute flaccid paralysis. Over 74000 cases as of 2014 and counting. Do your research.

  18. Great article, too bad there are so many people that have dumbed by the fluoride in the water. For your information, Chinese studies on aborted fetal brains show brain cell deformation due to fluoride ingestion at very low concentrations by pregnant women. Vaccinations further damage the brain. I am writing a book titled Silent Killers, and would like to use your article in my book referenced as A[[endix D as a required reading regarding vaccinations. I do have a section regarding vaccinations. Please respond to my request. Looking forward to your next article regarding toxicology.

      • Thank You. One should also equate mandatory vaccinations to population extermination. Reports from Kenya surfaces that a sterilizant was added to the tetanus vacine in 2014. This was also done mid nineties in Philli[ines and Mexico. Now they want to do it world wide. It was verified by a whistleblower, Dr. Thompson, vacines cause autism. Autism graph follows increased vaccinations in infants.

        • I don't doubt that Emil, they have been experimenting on the populace since the 1930's, in regards to the adjuvant Thimerasol. And other studies from pubmed show experiments in different parts of the world in aerosol vaccines/chemicals on large populations. Our govt has experimented on the populace many times and has apologized for it, it's well documented. I wish you the best Emil 🙂

    • And yet government spokespeople, and the shills who act for them, keep insisting vaccines are "safe and effective," thinking that if they keep repeating it, people will start to believe it. Jane Brody used that phrase THREE TIMES in her article in The New York Times, as usual not mentioning with one word all the victims of this bad "science."

  19. Hi Brian
    I like you post for 2 reasons. 1. It’s in form of questions , I think that almost all questions are very good and they should not be disregarded.
    2. You back up each question with research links/articles. very good.
    Also, I read some comments. I found the comment from Sarah Jones is just insulting! “As someone educated in the sciences, I can tell you your understanding of how vaccines are developed and tested is lacking.” And Sarah is…..? epidemiologist? MD? Immunologist? Ph.D in vaccine research and science? I used to believe in research and science , when I was “young”! HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy): was well researched topic. I used to prescribe HRT, now we consider it carcinogenic! There were plenty of documented test results that HRT is good!
    O…. Vioxx, the other example of well done research and testing (on humans). The drug was off the market because it created so many cardio-vascular events, that we did not know how to handle the situation.
    “low fat diet” : was peddled by scientific community and cardiologists for more then 20 years. We consider it to be harmful since 2010. And I can continue with more and more examples. So ,those are examples of “research and testing” by BIG pharma. We need to look into how pharma is developing and testing and is there $$$$ conflict of interest. Many doctors are concerned about it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uDbQNBla6aU
    And here is more how test results are withhold from physicians: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e26948i3hKI
    So, I started to learn more about vaccination about 2 years ago and the more I learn (to be precise: re-learn, what was taught in med. school), the more I question our vaccination practice.
    For example, the topic of “herd immunity” is a very interesting one. It’s a concept, epidemiological concept that failed us several times! Its mathematical model and interesting thing is : many epidemiologists agree that we can NOT achieve 96% immunization rate!
    Here is a good place to start learning about it: Herd immunity: History, Theory, Practice. http://op12no2.me/stuff/herdhis.pdf

    The other interesting area to explore is : immunology. What happens when we come in to contact with viruses, how immune system becomes activated and then compare it with the activation of immune system due to vaccination! You will see clearly, that resent outbreaks of measles and pertussis are exactly due to vaccination!

    Toxicology, genetics and epigenetics: How chemical substances from vaccines are effecting our DNA.

    And finally: long term effect of using vaccination and drugs in some African countries: social and medical aspects of it. I found this topic to be the most fascinating and disturbing! There are good lectures on this topic from University of Glasgow.

    When you will be done with your “education” ,you will become anti-vax!

    So, the question is: do vaccines work? Yes, some do. People create antibody due to vaccination, but they have short life span. There is no long term immunity with vaccination and this is a major problem.
    Can vaccine harm: absolutely.
    Shell we have mandatory immunization: absolutely no.

    Good luck! Study, look for the answers.
    Stay healthy.

  20. […] Typical vaccines contain hazardous ingredients like aluminum, MSG, formaldehyde, thimerosal and egg protein – gross! Not only that, but a lot of people who get the flu shot end up getting sick anyway, so really, what’s the point? If you take proper care of your body, there is no reason why you should catch the flu, and if you do end up catching the flu, a healthy body should recover in no time. […]

  21. Hey Brian, Great article!…I'm a retired history teacher with an M.A in history…I lead a healthy lifestyle and at 80 healthy as a horse…I read up on health issues every day and methinks I'm well-informed on health issues, thank you very much…I have posted your well-researched piece on FB and it should be sent around the world to enlighten all the sheeple who have been brainwashed by the mighty vaccine industry and Big Pharma with deep pockets.

    Here is my take on vaccines and health in general:

    I'm 80 and have avoided vaccines whenever possible (it is foolhardy indeed to allow such poisons as mercury, aluminum et al to be deliberately injected into a healthy body) but have NEVER taken a flu shot all my life due to my healthy lifestyle…whenever a doctor or another allopathic medical practitioner suggests a flu shot, I always tell them: "I take a flu shot every day by practising a healthy lifestyle that strengthens my immune system as an impregnable defense against flu or any other invading organism"…that shuts them up.

    Don't let the vaccine-pushers, the drug-pushers, the pill-pushers with a vested interest push you around…keep an independent mind, do lots of independent research on your own, and make up your own mind.

  22. Vaccine injured mom of a toddler as well as vaccine injured adult. Vaccines bypass our internal systems by being injected directly into the muscle/blood stream. This is how it's so easy for the toxins in vaccines to bypass the blood/brain barrier. What people fail to realize is by ingesting foods, our systems work diligently to release the harmful chemicals and excreting it. By bypassing this mechanism, we end up with all the autoimmune diseases, eczema, cancer, etc. Look back in time. What were the statistics on cancer, autoimmune disorders, allergies, even SIDS? Look at the "recommended" vaccine schedule. This year alone, they want over 50+ vaccines injected into our children. If vaccines were "safe" and "effective" then why do we need multiples? They don't know when "immunity" wanes so be sure to double up! You cannot get true immunity from a vaccine. It's not possible.

  23. Thank you Brian. A tough one to compile and I reckon you have done better than most, and thanks for not including the "conspiracy" websites as this helps me repost this. You knew you would get some negative comments, and again I reckon you have got less than most get! Dont think you have the best anaolgy there… the way pro-vaxers see the herd immunity thing… they are concerned that if your child doesnt wear a hat it makes it more likely that their child will get hit on the head. I'll try to think of a better metaphor for you.

  24. Such a great article! You even used the same graph from the CDC I have. I love your first statement about the HEP B shot. I told the nurse when she asked if I wanted it no thank you. I didn’t see my newborn shooting up with needles or having unprotected sex anytime soon and since it wears off after 4 years by more than 40% I think we are good. She just stood staring.
