For a good number of years now, I have danced back and forth with the idea of whether or not to write a post about vaccines. It’s always been such a hot topic, as there are so many ‘authorities’ stating the very same mantra, over and over again, that vaccines are safe and effective.
It is becoming more and more apparent now that this is simply not the truth. And I am happy to see this coming to light. In case you haven’t yet seen the video of the original full length ABC interview with Del Bigtree, producer of Vaxxed, you can find that here.
I can understand that as a society, we truly want to believe that those who say they are looking out for our well being are doing their job to the best of their abilities. But as the saying goes, if it seems too good to be true…
There are a number of links to other articles contained within this post that will take some time to make your way through, including this one. If you click on that link, you will find a large number of peer reviewed studies that get much less public exposure.
The amount of attack, suppression, name calling, emotional abuse and verbal abuse I have witnessed towards parents that have chosen not to vaccinate, are on the fence, or have a vaccine injured child is mind blowing. I have not been able to wrap my mind around that level of crazy fear and negativity. But I’ve since realized, the majority of people put large amounts of trust into ‘authority’ figures that are good with their words, and know some big ones.
That said, I do personally believe that the medical community has some of the absolute best diagnostic and emergency intervention tools going. And plenty of doctors have good hearts. I just also happen to know more than a large handful of doctors and nurses who refuse to vaccinate their own children. But they won’t share that information in the office. Because for obvious reasons, they would be out of a job.
Despite plenty of assertions to the contrary, the Vaxxed film focuses on William Thompson and his whistleblowing to the fact that the CDC hid and destroyed documents that contained data regarding the link that they found between the MMR vaccine and autism. Thompson has not been tried in court with this, despite asking to be.
And let’s keep in mind, that in other parts of the world, links between vaccines and autism have indeed been found. Much like this case that was heard and won by parents in an Italian court. There’s also this article from the UK.
Sharryl Attkisson, the reporter on the story of CDC senior scientist and whistleblower William Thompson, says that to use the term “anti-vaccine” is to have “unwittingly bought into the framing of the question as desired by propagandists” (this is in reply to someone’s question on her Facebook page). And she would know – she embarked on quite the journey down the proverbial rabbit hole when she took on this story. If you’d like to read through the sequence of events that led to the uncovering of CDC fraud, you can find that here.
I would urge us all to begin working deeper with fine tuning our senses, trusting our immediate instincts, and reading between the lines.
I would love to believe that someone out there was putting all the hard work in for me, and had the best interest of me and my family at heart. Because wouldn’t that be wonderful? Not to mention, easy?
But cigarettes are still on the market. And chemicals and GMOs are still being used to tamper with our food supply. And, and, and…
Common sense would say, if the health and well being of the general population were of such concern as to have food and medicines ‘regulated’ and pushed – as vaccines are – by authorities, then none of the above should be happening. Period.
The most common argument I hear, is that the polio vaccine was so successful that we should put our faith in that. But there is an incredibly vast amount of information available – if you wish to dig deep enough for it – that expresses quite the opposite.
Take a look at this work from Dr. Carolyn Dean, MD, ND, an Elissa Meininger (original article here):
Fear is often used to convince skeptical people of the virtues of vaccination. Recent memories of the polio epidemics of the 1940s and early 50s often paralyze honest discussions about the dangers of compulsory vaccination laws and what we should do about them. We have been so traumatized by memories of children in iron lungs and how our moms were afraid to let us go into crowds, go swimming in public places during the hot summer and the like, we forget that not all medical practitioners consider vaccination the holy grail of medicine. Only those of us who have a direct connection with success outside of modern medicine seem to eagerly promote such public discussion.
And they go on to say:
In the chiropractic community, several of Elissa’s personal chiropractors have stories about themselves or immediate family members who were stricken with the paralyzing effects of polio only to be completely healed within two weeks by simply utilizing natural cures available to the average chiropractor. Stories of successful polio treatment are common discussion at chiropractic conventions among the older practitioners.
And this continues further to reference the work of Eleanor McBean, a wonderful writer who is little known today, but was well published in the 1950s (she wrote “The Poisoned Needle”, an incredibly in depth work in 1957, find that here):
According to naturopath, Eleanor McBean, author of the “Poisoned Needle – Suppressed Facts About Vaccination” – a survey taken in 1946 regarding polio recovery rates of various schools of medical thought came out with some astounding information. Under chiropractors using a specific treatment had a 91%-100% had a 91%-100% recovery, a specific Hygienic treatment resulted in a 97% to 100% recovery, Nurse Elizabeth Kenny could produce a 72% recovery, 35% would recover under no professional care, and 17% would recover under what we would call modern medical care.
There is plenty of information out there if you have the inclination, and the drive to dig deeper. When all is said and done, it is my hope that we will all be less inclined to hand our power – along with our health and well being – over to those we hope know better than we do.
