Since the time they were introduced around 200 years ago vaccines have been wrongly credited to be a medical marvel,having stopped killer acute diseases on their tracks and providing hopes of tackling diseases like AIDS, cancers, diabetes, even ending obesity and the nicotine habit. "Keep hope alive, keep fear stoking and cash on it by controlling people in the name of science" is the game they have been playing for long.
Emergence of autism fuels discontent But below all this hope, hype and activity opposition and discontent is brewing. The process of vaccine manufacture, and the nature of vaccine ingredients have always been a closely guarded secret. However an outbreak of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in American children, up from 1 in 10,000 to 1 in 166 today (as per latest reports this is now 1 in 147), an increase that coincides with the increase in number of childhood vaccinations since 1978, focused attention on vaccines with the parents claiming that they watched their children regress after they got the shots.
Children with ASD, a condition yet to be fully understood, usually demonstrate deficits in socialinteraction, verbal and nonverbal communication, and display repetitive behaviors or interests. They may suffer from delayed development and be afflicted by severe bowel disorders. Clinically it is attributed to a neuron disorder and blamed on the genes, the gut problems being generally ignored. Critics say it is the largest iatrogenic (medicine induced) epidemic in human history.
Mercury poisoning via vaccines The cries against vaccines became more vocal as autism was found to be very similar to symptoms of mercury poisoning. Vaccine whistle blowers have revealed that Thimerosal, a vaccine decontaminant used in multi dose vials to prevent fungal and bacterial growth, is 49.56% mercury by weight and it is being used since 1930. The first autism cases were detected in 1931. Earlier too a syndrome called "Pink Disease" was seen in children treated with Calomel, a mercury based compound. Calomel was banned when the link was known.
It takes simple mathematics to find out that by the time the children take all the shots, which have increased considerably over the last three decades, the mercury in their body is much above the EPA approved limit in food of 0.1mcg per kg of body weight in adults, ingested, not injected. A mercury laced vaccine contains 15 to 50mcg of mercury per shot.
The mercury content in children's bodies has gone up to 250 times the EPA limit as a result of the vaccines and that too injected directly into their blood stream bypassing the body's natural defences. If we consider the WHO limit of mercury in water the children are being subjected to 50,000 times the limit. Mercury is a dangerous neurotoxin, second only to Uranium, and accumulates in fat cells of the brain, organs and tissues destroying the nerves therein. It has been found to be toxic even in ppm doses.
Vaccines also contain aluminum, used to excite the immune system of the body, and which considerably boosts the toxicity of mercury. When injected into children the mixture readily overpowers their nervous system to cause severe brain, neurological and allied damage.
Vaccines have caused a trail of autism and other damage wherever they have been implemented. China has reported an autistic population of 18 lakhs after vaccines were allowed into the country in 1990. The parents of vaccine damaged children have staged protests in the infamous Tiannemann Square in Beijing after which they were forcibly dragged away and imprisoned.
How vaccines affect children Some children are more susceptible to mercury as their bodies do not produce enough glutathione, an agent that helps in disposing off the mercury and other neurotoxins in the body. These children develop full scale autism while the other children are affected with various other disorders. It is observed that sick, underweight, malnourished and mmunocompromised children do not have the ability to produce enough glutathione.
Autism affects male children more than females because the female hormone acts similarly as glutathione thus eliminating mercury, other heavy metals and toxins from the body.
The number of children with memory problems, neurological problems, behavioral, developmental problems and attention deficit disorders is said to be 1 in 6 today, certainly a huge figure. The live viruses used in vaccines also contribute to serious and chronic intestinal disorders like Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), Crohn's Disease etc.
Doctors aware of vaccine risks What is very disturbing in the vaccination controversy is that the medical profession has been aware all along about the lethal aspects of vaccines. Dr Antoine Beauchamp was the first to blow the whistle even as Louis Pasteur came out with his germ theory. Dr J Crompton Burnett studied the concept of injecting diseased pus into the body in 1840 and declared it was creating a deep seated disease condition with symptoms akin to suppressed veneral diseases. He termed it Vaccinosis.
The spurt in small pox cases, vaccine induced deaths and the emergence of the cancer epidemic after the small pox vaccine was made mandatory sparked off protests all over the world spawning anti vaccine groups comprising mainly of mainstream doctors and the vaccine was banned.
Deaths from vaccines prompted many doctors to raise their voices which reached a peak in 1909. Concern over the use of mercury in vaccines was voiced in 1938. By 1990 scientific studies had linked vaccines to a wide range of illnesses. In the year 2000 a secret meeting was held by doctors, vaccine manufacturers and vaccine policy makers where doctors voiced their apprehensions but strangely a decision was taken to play down the concerns and continue with mercury in vaccines.
Not only that, it was decided to cut off research funds from projects which sought to study the way vaccines affected the population. This despite the presence of a wide range of studies having proven beyond doubt that vaccines affect the immune system adversely and are behind many cases of sickness in children and adults.
It can be said with certainty that vaccine induced diseases drive the medical industry and help it draw funds from governments and private sources while attempting to research into and manage these iatrogenic illnesses. The industry similarly fleeces the unsuspecting patients and also feeds the health insurance business.
Today vaccines continue to be the mainstay of the medical industry and they hope to swamp the population with 250 vaccines (as per the Vaccination Development Report 2006) which are currently in various stages of development, in the very near future. Currently plant based genetic vaccines are being covertly tested (with devastating results) and scientists are busy devising genetically modified crop which will automatically vaccinate us against disease. Truly we are entering a very frightening stage of human development, if we can call it that.
Vaccine manufacturers in the US are today immune to law suits. They are allowed to charge a fee of up to 60% on vaccines which goes to a national vaccine damage compensation fund. It is the government that pays damages to affected children prompted by courts. Needless to say it is very difficult to prove that vaccines have damaged the child as the medical community has framed the rules which makes it almost impossible to do so.
Doctors declare vaccines unnecessary As conscientious doctors watched perfectly normal children turn into grotesque zombies after receiving the vaccines, the beneficial nature of childhood illnesses began to be discussed.
It became clear to doctors that disease was something beyond the symptoms and that the outward manifestations of disease called aetiology was but the body's efforts to throw out disease matter. It thus became obvious that acute illnesses served a purpose and that the body purposely chose an illness to rectify an internal defect.
Under the circumstances, doctors like Philip Incao raised serious doubts over the supposed benefits of vaccines and instead declared them unnecessary, an insult to the growing child.
Others doctors too have revolted against vaccines as the short term and long term consequences are visible everywhere. There is consensus that vaccines have changed us permanently, introduced hereditory chronic disorders and caused genetic changes in the human population which will have far reaching consequences.
No long term tests on vaccines No long term tests have ever been conducted on the after effects of vaccines, singly and in combination. Vaccines are tested for a short period against another vaccine, not a placebo. Short term reactions are rationalised as resulting from other causes and not the vaccines.
There are instances where vaccines have been sanctioned despite adverse reactions being reported as in case of the Rotavirus vaccine. It is common for vaccines to be withdrawn for their dangerous after effects and then released after modifications claiming to be "new and improved". Even in the new avatar they cause havoc as in DTP which has been modified into DTaP.
Vaccine activists are now asking for vaccinated populations to be tested against an unvaccinated population. A community called Amish in the UK claim religious exemption from vaccines. It has been observed that they do not suffer from any autoimmune disorders. There are only 3 autistic children in the Amish community, against an expected 130. It was found upon enquiry that even these 3 have been vaccinated under various circumstances.
Short term studies conducted by unbiased researchers have revealed that vaccinated children suffer more than their unvaccinated counterparts. In many trials deaths, brain damage, neurological problems, infantile diabetes, Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS), a paralytic disease, severe allergies and intestinal disorders have been reported.
But how do vaccines suppress diseases?
The official version is that vaccines create antibodies to the various viral and bacterial matter injected into the body. However it has been proved that high antibody counts do not translate into immunity. (This has been acknowledged by Medscape, a medical journal, in its latest issue) Vaccinated population have regularly been hit by diseases that they have been vaccinated against. While the vaccine manufacturers see this as an oppurtunity to push in "booster doses", the fact is the vaccination concept is flawed.
Then how do vaccines suppress diseases? This is probably due to the observed phenomenon that if a person has a chronic disease, he is often spared acute ones. By introducing a chronic disease state and suppressing the vitality of the body, it cannot react to foreign intrusions by the way of external symptoms. This symptom-less condition is touted to be a "disease free state" whereas in reality it is an obvious case of immune suppression.
Grim scenario in India The situation in India is even worse. As per a declaration by doctors at the recent inauguration of the National Autism Centre at New Delhi, the number of autistic children, as per a very conservative estimate, is more than 40 lakhs today. Last year the figure was 17.40 lakhs. An increase of 133% in a single year. This has been reported in the Times of India. The centre was inaugurated by Ms Sonia Gandhi.
Also a news in The Telegraph by its science correspondent Sri G S Mudur reported that up to 3,00,000 children in India have been affected by Acute Flaccid Paralysis (AFP) over the last two decades, ostensibly due to the use of the live polio virus in the Oral Polio Vaccine (OPV). A grave error that has rattled the govt but all attempts are being made to deny the link.
The IMA has a more grim prognosis. While it reports a figure of 85,000 AFP cases it points out that this could be 5% of the total figure. Dr Jacob M Puliyel, Vice Chairman, IMA Committee on Immunisation has put the entire blame on WHO, UNICEF and the Indian Government in a scathing criticism published by The Hindu.
Vaccine flaws pointed out to GOI
It is not that the vaccine - childhood disorders link has not been pointed out to the Health Ministry in India. Dr Ajay Gambhir, Secy, IMA, and a member of the vaccine committee, has sounded the warning in 2003. Dr Mythilli Chari, a doctor associated with autism treatment has blamed the vaccine MNCs for forcing India to use vaccines containing Thimerosal even as in USA and European countries there is a ban on mercury in vaccines.
Dr Bhaskar Rao, eminent Cardio-Thoracic Surgeon has questioned the unbridled rule of vaccines in his 2001 tirade against the illogical introduction of the Hep-B vaccine into India. Dr P M Bhargava, Vice Chairman, Knowledge Commission has written to the Government on the OPV issue.
Other senior doctors who have expressed displeasure at the way mass vaccine camps are conducted include Dr Yash Paul and Dr G N Shenoy. Indian medical journals have flayed the attitude of the Govt to push more vaccines into children without weighing the pros and cons of the exercise. Clearly the medical community is sharply divided on the issue of vaccines.
Doctors also argue that it is clean water and environment, better hygiene and nutrition, prolonged and proper breastfeeding besides building up natural immunity that helps curb epidemics like polio and not vaccines.
Vaccines compromise immune system Vaccines, say critics, compromise the immune system by exciting the humoral (blood and lymph based) immunity while leaving the cellular immunity untouched. This creates an inherent imbalance confusing the body's cognitive and recuperative abilities. It is this imbalance that leads to allergies and autoimmune disorders as the body looses its ability to distinguish between friend and foe.
Natural illnesses provide lifelong immunity as both humoral as well as cellular immunity gets involved. Exposure to illnesses like tuberculosis do not offer immunity as they are constitutional diseases and affect the body deeply to leave an imprint which has to be cured by well chosen holistic remedies and practices.
Vaccines as bio weapons To top it all vaccines are being introduced in India without proper trials raising fears that bio weapons designed as vaccines could easily invade India, as pointed out by Dr Ajay Gambhir of the IMA. Vaccines to forcibly control the population, as per an US, UN and WHO agenda, by creating antibodies to a birth hormone have already been covertly tested in India, Vietnam, Philippines and Nigeria. In India a PIL has been filed on the issue by Saheli, a women's organisation.
The haste with which developing and overpopulated countries are being flooded with vaccines, as a philanthropic gesture, have raised the fears that they are being used to make the population sterile. Mercury is known to effect the childbearing capacity of women and fertility in men as per Dr David Ayoub, a noted vaccine researcher of the US.
The use of Squalene, an oil based adjuvant that is known to be a painful immunedestroyer being used in recent vaccines and in vaccines in the making is also a cause for concern. Used in the anthrax vaccine, it has caused havoc amongst US troops who are being forcibly vaccinated. Squalene is also an ingredient of the various AIDS vaccines under development.<
