For Georgio Tremante, there is no vaccine controversy, only facts. Georgio and his family lost a son in 1971, another in 1980, and have a third child who was left a quadriplegic with respiratory insufficiency after administration of the Sabin polio vaccine.
His son, Alberto, has had to endure years of hospitalization attached to a respirator because he could no longer breathe on his own. Georgio believes Alberto was saved to show the world an inconvenient truth the pharmaceutical companies would like to bury; vaccines can, and do kill and maim innocent children.
This family has experienced the persecution that comes from trying to expose the truth about vaccination risks. They have maintained their mission in spite of pressure from pharmaceutical companies, medical authorities and government agencies. They have continued to do their research and broadcast the facts about vaccination risks in spite of all they have had to endure. View the results of this family and others like them throughout Italy on a website called, A.L.V. “Holocaust” caused by vaccination practices.
As a result of this group’s efforts, a petition is being circulated calling for an end to mandatory and/or forced vaccinations. They are asking government officials around the world to take a serious look at the science behind vaccination practices and re-assess the safety and efficacy of current vaccination policies and programs. An excerpt from their petition says it all:
“We, the undersigned, as free men and women, we do not recognize the authority of the World Health Organization (WHO) that the general mandate for us to immunization. Our bodies are sovereign territory and are subject to our exclusive self-determination. Any attempt to breach this trust must be interpreted as a violation of a fundamental right.”
The A.L.V. is not alone in their belief. Vaccine safety groups from around the world are united in their efforts to expose the potential risks involved with vaccines and current vaccination practices. Consider some of the events from around the world regarding vaccines:
February 2009, two girls are hospitalized in Spain after Gardasil injections, prompting a recall of 76,000 doses of Merck’s ‘cervical cancer’ vaccine.
April 2010: India halts HPV vaccine demonstration projects as a result of health advocates’ concerns about HPV vaccine safety and ethical violations by the organizations conducting the ‘projects.’
April 2010, Bhutan calls an immediate halt to their HPV vaccination program, scheduled to begin in May, in response to the investigation in India.
August 2010, French authorities ban advertising Gardasil® as a preventive measure for cervical cancer.
September 2010, Scottish health authorities come under fire from vaccine safety advocates for failure to disclose potential risks involved with HPV vaccines.
October 2010, Irish mothers unite to get the truth out about potential risk of Gardasil®.
October 2010, in the United States, SaneVax Inc. requests the FDA rescind the approval of Gardasil® until it is proven safe and effective.
January 2011, British Society for Ecological Medicine organizes a medical conference entitled, “The Health Hazards of Prevention – Vaccinations and Pharmacoprophylaxis.”
These are but a few of the significant developments in the vaccine safety advocate community during the last year.
The World Health Organization assessed the situation properly when they said governments, pharmaceutical companies and health officials need to address parental concerns about vaccine safety.
Parents around the world are not going to sit quietly by as their children are injured or killed because of public policy. Their concerns do, indeed, need to be addressed – not with rhetoric and platitudes – but with sound, scientific evidence.
