Natural health advocates are pushing back, and their David-versus-Goliath struggle has caused many to raise their voices in support – including renowned pediatricians, respected neurosurgeons, child psychologists, virologists, and researchers.
Here’s a whole chorus of scientific voices, all speaking out unequivocally about vaccines and their dangers.
For example, Kenneth Aitken, M.D., a British child psychologist and internationally known expert on child autism, speaking to “The Telegraph” in reference to the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine.
“When I was in training, one in 2,500 (children were autistic), Now it is one in 250. At the moment, the only logical explanation is MMR.”
Editor’s note: Some experts currently have the autism rate at 1 in 45 children – and, if the trend continues – it will soon be 1 in every 2 children born will have some form of autism.
Jane Orient, M.D., executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, and a professor of clinical medicine at the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine:
“There has been a frightening increase in cases of autism that has not been explained. There are a number of anecdotal reports from parents that symptoms of autism have appeared close to the time of the (MMR) vaccine.”
Harris Coulter, Ph.D., a leading homeopathic medicine historian and lecturer, has this to say:
“Probably 20 percent of American children…suffer from development disability….a large proportion of the millions of US children and adults suffering from autism, seizures, mental retardation, hyperactivity, dyslexia and other…..development disabilities owe their disorders to one or another of the vaccines against childhood diseases.”
And, from the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons: “Measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis B and the whole panoply of childhood diseases are a far less serious threat than having….10 percent of a generation afflicted with learning disability and/or uncontrolled aggressive behavior because of an impassioned crusade for universal vaccination…”
It’s not just the MMR vaccine that causes vaccine injuries
Here are the words of Jerome Murphy, M.D., former head of Pediatric Neurology at Milwaukee Children’s Hospital, on the link between the pertussis (DPT) vaccine and seizures:
“There is just overwhelming data that there’s an association. Sometimes, the most damning indictment can come right from the conventional medical authorities themselves. According to both the CDC and Merck, manufacturer of the MMR vaccines, adverse reactions from vaccines can include “fever, rash, fainting…. pancreatitis, diarrhea…..vomiting, nausea, coma and permanent brain damage.”
Coma and permanent brain damage: does it get any more “adverse” than that?
Doctors from around the globe speak out on vaccines and crib death
Sudden infant death syndrome, sometimes called crib death, is the unexplained death, usually during sleep, of an apparently healthy baby less than 12 months old. Conventional medicine is at a loss to explain the cause, but points to a possible association with “brain abnormalities,” low birth weight and respiratory infection.
However, a UCLA study sponsored by the FDA and published in “Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal” showed a link between the DPT vaccine and sudden infant death syndrome. Of 145 children who died, 53 of them – about a third – had received the vaccination within 4 weeks.
“My suspicion, which is shared by others in my profession, is that the nearly 10,000 SIDS deaths that occur in the U.S. each year are related to one or more of the vaccines that are routinely given children,” said Robert Mendelsohn, M.D.
Raymond Obomsawin, M.D., Ph.D., past Senior Advisor on First Nations Health at the National Aboriginal Health Organization, notes that delaying the DPT immunization until 2 years old in Japan resulted in “a dramatic decline in adverse side effects….From 1975 to 1980, when DPT injections were delayed to 24 months of age, there was an 85 to 90 percent reduction in severe cases of damage and death.”
And, from Harris L. Coulter, Ph.D.: “’Crib death’ was so infrequent in the pre-vaccination era that it was not even mentioned in the statistics, but it started to climb in the 1950s with the spread of mass vaccination against diseases of childhood.”
Here’s what William C. Torch, Director of Child Neurology at the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Nevada School of Medicine, has to say about vaccines and SIDS.
“… DPT vaccinations may be a generally unrecognized major cause of sudden infant and early childhood death, and… the risks of immunization may outweigh its potential benefits.”
And the words of Andrew Moulden, M.D., Ph.D., a clinical psychologist:
“When you impair the brain blood flow by vaccination, you can impair the respiration control center which can result in death. We call it SIDS.”
The cavalcade of statements is almost overwhelming in its impact, as one doctor after another points to the link between vaccines and sudden death – but, is anyone listening?
Still not convinced? Here’s a quote from the actual insert that accompanies Connaught Labs DPT shot
“Sudden Infant Death Syndrome has been reported following administration of DPT,” the insert reads. The significance,” it continues, “is unclear.” No, it actually seems fairly straightforward.
But the strongest words might come from Archie Kalokerinos, M.D., an Australian physician and a former Medical Superintendant of the Collarenebri Hospital near Sydney. Kalokerinos says he achieved a substantial drop in infant death rates after realizing “immunizations were dangerous,” and he called the whooping cough vaccine the “worst vaccine of all….In susceptible infants, it knocks their immune systems about, leading to irreparable brain damage, or severe attacks – or even death – from diseases such as pneumonia and gastroenteritis.”
And Kalokerinos finishes with a shocking accusation:
“My final conclusion….is that the unofficial policy of the ‘Save the Children’s Fund’ (as well as other vaccine-promoting organizations)…. is one of murder and genocide.”
Experts voice doubts about the effectiveness and safety of vaccines, call for more study
J. Anthony Morris, Ph.D, former Chief Vaccine Control Officer and research virologist at the US FDA, states, “There is a great deal of evidence to prove that immunization of children does more harm than good.”
Bernadine Healy, M.D., former director of the NIH and a past president of the American Red Cross: “There are unanswered questions about vaccine safety….public health officials have been too quick to dismiss the hypothesis (linking vaccines with harm) as irrational without sufficient studies of causation.”
“The greatest threat of childhood diseases lies in the dangerous and ineffectual efforts made to prevent them through mass immunization…There is no scientific evidence that mass inoculations can be credited with eliminating any childhood disease,” – Dr. Mendelsohn
As Russell Blaylock, M.D., a former clinical assistant professor of neurosurgery at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, explains it, “Vaccines shift your immune system to an immune suppression type of state called the TH2 shift…. a weaker, antibody type immune system… Then, everyone becomes more susceptible [to infectious diseases]… and no one is talking about that. Now, a lot of scientists know that, but they are afraid to speak out because their careers would be ruined.”
Fortunately, not all are afraid to speak out.
