Thank you to Tristanzmum for this info!!



Its a 50/50 chance that the vacs will protect your children from the diseases it is supposed to... now with that in mind... Is it still worth the risk.. knowing that not all children are covered...

Keep in mind all the diseases that are listed, we have already found an antidote for the majority..

But we don't have a cure for the risks....

unedited version:

Disease risk vs Vaccine risk
" (Vaccine) adverse effects are amply documented and are far more significant to public health than any adverse effects of infectious diseases. Immunizations not only did not prevent any infectious diseases, they caused more suffering and more deaths than has any other human activity in the entire history of medical intervention. It will be decades before the mopping-up after the disasters caused by childhood vaccination will be completed."--- Dr. Viera Scheibner, PhD

"Measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis B, and the whole panoply of childhood diseases are a far less serious threat than having a large fraction (say 10%) of a generation afflicted with learning disability and/or uncontrollable aggressive behavior because of an impassioned crusade for universal vaccination."


"Instead of epidemics of measles and polio, we have epidemics of chronic autoimmune and neurological disease: In the last 20 years rates of asthma and attention-deficit disorder have doubled, diabetes and learning disabilities have tripled, chronic arthritis now affects nearly one in five Americans and autism has increased by 300 percent or more in many states."----Barbara Loe Fisher

Disease risk:
Measles risk
"Doctors maintain that the (MMR) inoculation is necessary to prevent measles encephalitis, which they say occurs about once in 1,000 cases. After decades of experience with measles, I question this statistic, and so do many other pediatricians. The incidence of 1/1,000 may be accurate for children who live in conditions of poverty and malnutrition, but in the middle-and upper-income brackets, if one excludes simple sleepiness from the measles itself, the incidence of true encephalitis is probably more like 1/10,900 or 1/100,000."

------Dr Mendelsohn

Measles risks reduced to virtually nil with non-drug medicine
Nutritional medicine
"I have myself, through Natural Hygiene, over 16 years, treated all forms and hundreds of cases of typhus and typhoid fevers, pneumonia's, measles and dysentery's, and have not lost a single patient. The same is true of scarlet and other fevers. No medicine whatever was given".--Dr Trall, 1860.

"Most parents today find it quite difficult to understand why they have to have their child vaccinated against this particular disease (measles) when their mothers used to organise measles parties to ensure all the children of the family had it!" In fact a mild dose of measles stimulates the immature immune system, in the correct sequence, to develop naturally, thereby strengthening the child generally."--Christina J Head MCH Rs. Hon

"The BNF for 1985 states (page 385) that mumps and its complications are rarely serious. For this reason it goes on to suggest that there is little indication for the routine use of mumps vaccine."--Dr JK Anand (10/2001 BMJ)

"Mumps is a common childhood disease which is benign in the in the vast majority of cases. It is desirable that mumps be contracted in early childhood because, when contracted in adulthood, the disease may cause meningitis and/or damage to the testes, ovaries, auditory nerves or pancreas. However, and equally importantly, women are less likely to contract ovarian cancer if they have had mumps during childhood (West 1966)."---Viera Scheibner, Ph.D.

"The mumps vaccine, a high-risk, low-benefit product struck me and plenty of other doctors as silly from the moment it was introduced........the chance of sterility from mumps is overrated since in practically every case of mumps orchitis (inflammation of the testes) only one testis is affected, and a man could repopulate the entire world with the other one."--Dr Mendelsohn MD

"A study by Ronne (Lancet, 5/5/85 1-5) showed that adults who had had natural measles with a rash had a decreased incidence of various cancers, including cervical. Another study showed that women are less likely to contract ovarian cancer if they have had mumps during childhood."--Dr Jayne Donegan

"In view of the rarity of the disease (diptheria), the effective antibiotic treatment now available, the questionable effectiveness of the vaccine, the multimillion dollar annual cost of administering it, and the ever-present potential for harmful, long-term effects from this or any other vaccine, I consider continued mass immunization against diphtheria indefensible"---Dr Mendelsohn MD

"Study after study has demonstrated that many women immunized against rubella as children lack evidence of immunity in blood tests given during their adolescent years. Other tests have shown a high vaccine failure rate in children given rubella, measles, and mumps shots, either separately or in combined form."---Dr Mendelsohn

Vaccine risks:
"Probably 20% of American children—one youngster in five--- suffers from "development disability". This is a stupefying figure…...... the primary cause of encephalitis...... is the childhood vaccination program. To be specific, a large proportion of the millions of US children and adults suffering from autism, seizures, mental retardation, hyperactivity, dyslexia, and other shoots or branches of the hydraheaded entity called "development disabilities", owe their disorders to one or another of the vaccines against childhood diseases."—Harris L. Coulter, Ph.D.

MMR vaccine:
Autism (287), Crohn’s disease and other serious chronic stomach problems (136), Epilepsy (132), Other forms of brain damage (induding meningitis, cerebral palsy, encephalopathy, encephalitis etc.) (77), Hearing and vision problems (81), Arthritis (50), Behavioural and learning problems (in older children) (110), Chronic fatigue syndrome (41), Diabetes (15), Guillain-Barre syndrome (9), Idiopathic thrombocytopaenic purpura (and other purpuras) (6), Subacute Sclerosing Panencephalitis (SSPE) (3), Wegener’s Granulamatosis (2), Leukaemia (1), Multiple sclerosis (1), Death (18). (Dawbarns fact sheet.)

DPT vaccine:
"We concluded that the DPT shot causes a minimum of 12,000 cases of severe neurological damage every year, in addition to the 6000 deaths diagnosed as Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. The neurological damage includes juvenile-onset diabetes, so-called "congenital" blindness, deafness, mental retardation, autism, epilepsy, seizures, various kinds of paralyses and palsies, and other neurological disorders."--Harris Coulter Ph.D.

Otitis media:
"At least half of all U.S children have had otitis media by their first birthday. ......Just imagine what it means if this is all, or mostly all, caused by the pertussis vaccine. This particular "glue ear" type of otitis was not known in American medical practice before the late 1940's or early 1950's -- in other words, the time when the pertussis vaccine was being introduced. "--Harris Coulter Ph.D.

"A young Australian lady, living in England, organized one of my many seminars there and told me that her father told her "go to Viera's seminars and do not vaccinate your children. All those ear infections, and problems like glue ear, are caused by vaccination". When I asked her who is her father, she said "he is an ENT specialist in Brisbane, Australia".--Viera Scheibner

"I have published many articles linking vaccines and diabetes. In one study, a clinical trial on the hemophilus vaccine, I showed that the risk of the vaccine exceeds the benefit. This is published by the British medical Journal."

--Bart Classen

"In 1947, there were an estimated 600,000 cases of diabetes in the United States.....Today the Metropolitan Life Insurance Co.'s quarterly Statistical Bulletin estimates that diabetics make up 5 percent of the US population, or 13 million persons.......So, while the US population has approximately doubled since the 1940's, the number of diabetics has risen more than 20 times."--Harris Coulter

Autism rare before mass DPT vaccination.
Now 1 in 100 children are autistic:
"Vaccination programs were instituted in the late 1930s, and the first handful of autistic babies were noted in the early 1940s. When vaccination programs were expanded after the war, the number of autistic children increased greatly."---Harris Coulter Ph.D.

Death and vaccination:
"Sometimes it ends in sudden death. Within a few hours or a day of the shot the baby is found dead in its cradle. These deaths are classified in our medical statistics as "crib death" or "sudden infant death of unknown origin." There are about 9000 cases of SIDS in the United States every year, of which probably 6000 are vaccine-related."--Harris Coulter (1996)


 NVICP has paid out for 50 deaths per year:
The US Federal Government's National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) has paid out over 724.4 million dollars to parents of vaccine injured and killed children, in taxpayer dollars. The NVICP has received over 5000 petitions since 1988, including over 700 for vaccine-related deaths, and there are still over 2800 total death and injury cases pending that may take years to resolve (NVICP, Health Resources and Services Administration).

"The number of vaccination deaths overwhelms disease (pertussis) deaths: 32 in a three year period according to the CDC (1992-94), and only 8 in 1993, the last peak incidence year....Simply put, the vaccine may be more than 100 times more deadly than the disease "--Alan Phillips (This doesn't take into account the SIDS--DPT connection).

Hepatitis (does this look like a vaccine for children?):
"The risk factors include: sexually active heterosexual adults with more than one sex partner in the prior six months or a history of sexually transmitted disease; homosexual and bisexual men; illicit injection drug users; persons at occupational risk of infection; hemodialysis patients; household and sex contacts of persons with chronic hepatitis B infection; and infants born to hepatitis B infected women."--Dr Waisbren MD

Hepatitis vaccine:
"Children younger than 14 are three times more likely to die or suffer adverse reactions after receiving hepatitis B vaccines than to catch the disease," ---- Jane. M. Orient, M.D., Executive Director of AAPS

Immunization Risks Are Too Serious To Be Ignored
Fort Worth Star Telegram
April 4, 2001 By Dawn Richardson, Special to the Star-Telegram

It is time to stop dumbing down the vaccine safety debate by calling parents concerned with vaccine reactions and parental rights "anti-vaccine." An Op-Ed column on Monday by Russell Tolman and Dr. Mark Shelton oversimplified and misrepresented a serious issue.

Parents love their children and want to protect them, but vaccines, like the diseases they are designed to prevent, carry an unpredictable risk of injury or death.

Texas parents want the Texas Legislature to pass proposed legislation to give them the same freedom that parents already have in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont and Washington to make their own informed, voluntary vaccination decisions
without being subjected to government sanctions.

All diseases and vaccines are not the same, and neither are all children.

Yet current Texas mandatory vaccination laws, which treat chickenpox like smallpox and hepatitis B like polio, don't contain a parental rights exemption provision.

More than 200 new vaccines, which are being developed for everything from cocaine addiction to sexually transmitted diseases
including AIDS, will be candidates for future mandates.

Some children are at greater biological risk than others for reacting to vaccines. Texas' one-size-fits-all mass vaccination policies don't take these differences into account, and they fail to minimize the risk of vaccine-induced injury and death for too many children.

Annually, 12,000 to 14,000 reports of hospitalizations, injuries and deaths following vaccinations are made to the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, and yet about 90 percent of doctors fail to report these reactions.

A study published in the February issue of ..Pediatrics' revealed that 40 percent of doctors admit to not even mentioning vaccine risks to their patients.

The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program has paid out more than $1.2 billion in damages and yet still turns away three out of four vaccine victims to cope on their own. Meanwhile, because of a complex network of state and federal laws, doctors and the vaccine manufacturers continue to profit while taking no financial responsibility for vaccine injuries and deaths.

Some parents are trying to save their children from doctors who are unwilling to acknowledge past vaccine reactions with a medical exemption and are willing to literally vaccinate a child to death.

A statutorily guaranteed conscientious exemption provision, like the one being considered
by the Texas Legislature, is the only hope that these parents have.

Public health involves more than Tolman and Shelton's myopic fixation on high vaccination rates and low infectious-disease rates.

The rate of chronic disease and disability in children is at an all-time high. Texas children get as many as 39 doses of 12 different vaccines by school entry -- while the brain and immune system are developing at the most rapid rate.

There is growing evidence and a groundswell of scientists,
doctors and parents who believe that overzealous vaccination policies have contributed to the dramatic increases in asthma, allergies, learning disabilities, autism, attention-deficit disorder, diabetes and other chronic neuroimmune illnesses.

Recent congressional hearings have raised eye-opening questions about inadequate vaccine licensing and safety standards; conflicts of interest involving drug companies and vaccine policy-makers; and huge gaps in scientific knowledge about how vaccines affect the body.

Based on the epidemic of doctors and public health officials who mislead parents by exaggerating the risks of the diseases and the benefits of the vaccine while minimizing and often denying the risks of the vaccine, it is becoming clear why a growing number of educated parents are pushing during this legislative session to reclaim their rights over what vaccines their children will receive and when they will receive them.

Vaccination is a medical procedure that carries an inherent risk of injury or death, and it is time to let our legislators know that every Texas parent deserves to be given truthful, unbiased information about diseases and vaccines and be allowed to make informed, voluntary, vaccination decisions for their children.

Jun. 1, 2008 at 8:52 PM I've been in discussions with Groups before, and we feel (sorry to say).... but wonder how many of the cases of child problems aren't caused by the mothers:  Medications, Drinking, Drugging, or just plain didn't take care of themselves, play into more than a Suspiscion of (Injections)....  ----  If it were the injections:  Then why is it just happening so much now..........  and we don't want Measle's and Mump's etc........ back killing off the population.......---  Injections worked wonderful for my child, even the chicken pox one..........  They are WONDERFUL in my opinion.

Well, I cannot comment on your page and it looks like a lot of fantasy, unicorns, etc.  I don't really care how you FEEL.  I am more concerned with the FACTS.  Fact is the only thing this momma did "wrong" was have mercury amalgams in my mouth, allow pitocin, and unknowingly let a ped give my daughter 6 shots at a time - EVERY time she got shots!

When your idyllic world comes crashing in someday I hope no one tries to blame it all on you.

How dare you come to a post from a Mom with a special needs child & put blame on drinking, drugs, etc. You may as well said that's what she had done. Shame on you, go to post who cares about your stupid comment!!
