A recent book by Dr. Paul Offit, chief of the division of infectious diseases at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, – CHOP – is titled, Deadly Choices: How the Anti-Vaccine Movement Threatens Us All. For a more realistic view of the source of threat to us all, particularly to our kids, let’s take a closer look at the author. Dr. Offit personally reviewed and approved for publication on the CHOP website an article urging parents to vaccinate their kids for chickenpox, which states that, beyond minor discomforts such as fever or pain at the injection site, the shot is perfectly safe. (1) Meanwhile, Merck’s insert describes both upper and lower respiratory infections as adverse reactions noted during its own vaccine trials, and among the listed post-marketing reports are anaphylactic shock, encephalitis, Guillain-Barre and other disabling, potentially catastrophic illnesses. (2)
There’s a matter-of-fact reality to those post-marketing reports: to negate their association with the vaccine, one needs proof – especially when you enjoy the bully pulpit enjoyed by Dr. Offit. Unless he has available a detailed analysis of each individual instance of report, showing conclusively that there was no causal relation to the vaccine, he dare not suggest or insinuate that those reports may simply be summarily discounted as unrelated, or risk serious breach of ethical conduct. In this case, the total lack of mention of the reported post-marketing severe reactions defies excuse.
Chickenpox is described as a mild infection in the preface to the article, and indeed, resulting damage or death is rare. As per the CDC’s description, the probability of death if you had the disease was around 1 in 30,000:
Chickenpox used to be very common in the United States. About 4 million people would get the disease each year. Also, about 10,600 people were hospitalized and 100 to 150 died each year because of chickenpox. (3)
The article goes on to cite the anomaly – a child for whom chickenpox proved a death knell. Iatrogenics, however – injury or death at the hands of allopathic medical treatment – is one of the primary causes of both mortality and morbidity in the U.S., killing anywhere from 100,000 to 200,000 annually, depending on which estimate you access, and hospitalizing 1,000,000. (4) So while a case of death from chickenpox is undeniably tragic, one has to wonder about how the few kids who died, most of whom, says the article, were previously healthy, were treated. Of the 4 million kids who got the disease each year, surely many thousands were previously unhealthy, yet they didn’t die. It defies common sense that even a few previously healthy kids succumbed to chickenpox, if they were treated properly, and in timely fashion.
It also defies common sense to ignore the importance of proper treatment, and focus instead on a potentially deadly medical procedure. Typically, what the article fails to mention is that 138 chickenpox vaccine-associated deaths have been reported (5); and that, knowing how egregiously broken is the reporting system (6), the real total over the now twenty years of the use of the vaccine could easily be several thousand, which means the vaccine could be killing as many or more kids each year as the disease did. Nor does it mention that shingles is among the top 1% of the reported vaccine reactions. We can’t even take the supposed post-vaccine reduction in the incidence of chickenpox at face value, since it’s a well known propensity of pediatricians, in defense of a healthy component of their bottom line and/or blind obeisance to their educations, to protect the good name of vaccination, and avoid diagnosing any disease for which a child has been vaccinated.
The real insult – the nut – is no mention whatsoever of the natural protection offered by the bulk of the immune system – the components found on the surface of the skin and in the mucosal membranes; the elegant, unreproducible cascade of reactions that takes place, well before any humoral response, when disease is acquired naturally – a response totally unique to each individual:
“The vast majority of human pathogens infect their host via mucosal tissues such as the lungs, gut or urogenital tract. These mucosal sites have therefore evolved elaborate immune systems in order to protect the host from infection. Essentially, the function of the mucosal immune system is to provide protection at the site of pathogen entry.” (7)
No mention is made of the attendant pregnant possibility of catastrophe that is indeed the introduction of the pathogen – in this case, chickenpox – and the other vaccine ingredients – sucrose, phosphate, glutamate, gelatin, monosodium L-glutamate, sodium phosphate dibasic, potassium phosphate monobasic, potassium chloride, sodium phosphate monobasic, potassium chloride, EDTA, residual components of MRC-5 cells (from human fetuses) including DNA and protein, neomycin, fetal bovine serum, human diploid cell cultures (WI-38 – more human fetal tissue), embryonic guinea pig cell cultures, and human embryonic lung cultures (8) – indirectly into the bloodstream, via the muscles. In that the skin and the surfaces of the gastrointestinal and respiratory tracts are all exposed to the outside world – to the environment – through inhalation, ingestion or direct contact, they together constitute the membrane separating the inside of the body – heart, brain, bloodstream (circulatory system) – from the outside, and are often so described. (9) An essential function of the immune system, then, is to preclude the intrusion into the body that is the very act of vaccination.
That is, the very act of vaccination thwarts the good function of the immune system.
The same type of misinformation and omission of critical information we find in the CHOP article can be found in all mainstream vaccine articles and press releases. Where vaccines are concerned, there’s a total lack of investigative journalism – only a vomiting back up of whatever the media are fed by the industry; the CDC, the FDA, the IOM, academia, the manufacturers, Reuters, and the Paul Offits of this world, who obviously don’t give a damn about your right to informed consent. Publishers are surely involved, or they’d force the issue, for this is easily the medical story of the century. A true chart of both the incidence and mortality of infectious disease through the twentieth century and the increase in vaccine induced chronic illness, autoimmune disease and neurological disorders, leaves the infectious disease statistics looking paltry in comparison. The incidence of VIDS – Vaccine Induced Disease Syndrome – is a tsunami. At the current rate of annual increase, autism alone will be diagnosed in 1 in 10 schoolboys in only three short years (10), and autism is obviously associated with vaccination. The industry will continue claiming ‘til its dying breath – may it come soon – that the onset of autism happens to coincide with scheduled wellness visits, but that’s nonsense when you consider that what ultimately proves to be the obvious first step down a long road of regression too often occurs on the very same day as one of those visits, typically within hours. No – unless you control the flood of mainstream vaccine information, you cannot dare say with a straight face that the cri encephalique – the involuntary, bone-chilling cry caused by brain inflammation – issued by an infant within hours of vaccination is a coincidence, and not an encephalitic vaccine reaction; that a terrible full-body rash, akin to a severe chemical burn, appearing in the twenty-four hours after a DTaP shot is just happenstance; that an extended spate of offensively foul bowel movements experienced by a baby after a pediatrician’s barrage of shots painted as disease prevention and the road to better health, isn’t an offensive contradiction.
We can only guess at the motivations of an industry that uses the tenets of the Nuremberg Code as bookends to hold their reams of falsified studies (11), coercive practices, emails fraught with worry that they couldn’t exorcise the vaccine indictment – the finding, in this case, that mercury was tied to speech and learning disorders and autism – from their own study, instead of resolute in their determination to notify American parents as soon as possible of the potential threat to their kids (12); misrepresentations of legislated vaccination requirements for school attendance, almost universally withholding information about the availability of exemptions; and a list of additional infractions much too long to catalog here.
Dr.Archie Kalokerinos, after administering vitamin C injections to Aboriginal kids in the Australian Outback and thereby substantially reducing the number of deaths occurring post-vaccination, upon relaying the news to his superiors was greeted not with elation at the progress he’d made or the lives he’d saved, but with hostility. Years later he dared sum up the motivations:
“My final conclusion after forty years or more in this business is that the unofficial policy of the World Health Organisation and the unofficial policy of ‘Save the Children Fund’ and almost all those organisations is one of murder and genocide.” (13)
It is not the liberty of Dr. Offit, or any manufacturer researcher or government public health official, or any MD, to decide for you what is an acceptable level of risk for your child. Indeed – vis-a-vis vaccines, the industry shows nothing but disdain, for the truth and for the health of our kids, and cannot be trusted. Our focus must be on warning others of the palpable threat of vaccination, as the ground force to ultimately break the cartel’s hold – politically, economically and socially – completely.
Research. Educate. We’re on our own.
