Three minute summary presentation to: The Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines – 09/02/2010
Vaccine critics are saying we are trading vaccine preventable infectious diseases for chronic health disorders.
How can we reasonably say, “Vaccines don’t cause or contribute to autism” when we don’t know what does cause autism! And vaccine concerns are no longer just about Autism—they’re about children’s total health.
Armies of parents are reporting that they took a normally developing child to the pediatrician for routine shots and their child’s health or behavior changed–never to be the same as before that visit. Thousands upon thousands of parents report similar “coincidental” symptoms related in time to vaccinations. It behooves everyone to find out why.
We now have general agreement among many that vaccine “safety” studies are flawed. Short-term studies won’t see possible long-latency effects. Older vaccines, as inert placebos, are not reasonable; and I am particularly concerned about the effects of aluminum.
Most vaccines and boosters contain aluminum. The aluminum exposure has risen steadily in tandem with our escalating vaccine program. We need to focus upon the impact of cumulative vaccine components and particularly aluminum.
Much of the anger focused on vaccines, stems from the use of mandates, which holds individuals hostage for employment, school requirements, and pediatric medical care. I believe this is a flagrant violation of personal liberty and is now seen as a most unpopular aspect of a socialist agenda.
The primary argument for mandates is herd immunity, but Herd Immunity is failing even among highly vaccinated populations. This further challenges the use of mandates.
