The one, and most likely, only thing we have in common with each other no matter where we are from is the fact that we are someone’s child. Whether we ever have children of our own does not make the gravity of children’s health care any less important or critical to the growth and health of our global world. We are all connected. Somewhere in your life, there is a child, and if not, you have your own inner child to consider.
Sudden Infant Death syndrome or SIDS has been a catchall excuse for the deaths of hundreds of babies age 2 days to 2 years old. While autopsy reports are kept confidential, a visit to the National Vaccine Information Center should be a revelation for even the most hardened supporter of pharmaceutical company and western medicine philosophy. Within days, sometimes hours, of being injected with DPT vaccine (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus), children suffered convulsions, respiratory and cardiac arrest, and died. Medical experts argue that only several hundred of the thousands of babies inoculated had adverse reactions, but the DPT vaccine is only the tip of the iceberg. MMR, or the mumps, measles, rubella vaccine, has made headlines in the last decade as being a probable precursor of autism. Mercury in vaccines has also made the headlines, as mercury can cause neurological and nervous system damage.
The first reaction parents have to this information is fear. Ever since polio became an epidemic in America and the polio vaccine was administered routinely to hundreds of thousands of people, vaccines have become the mainstream weapon of destruction.
I experienced the measles as a child. I also had mumps, whooping cough, chicken pox and something called the fifth disease. I got through them and my immune system got stronger. Yes, my mother had to put up with my complaints, and babysitters had to stop me from scratching my red bumps, but I didn’t die, and I wasn’t debilitated or diagnosed with another disease.
It wasn’t until I entered the Marines and was inoculated for every disease imaginable that my body reacted negatively with erythema in multi-form, nodules, vascular impairment, nerve damage, and paralysis.
Few people realize the extent of vaccine-induced disease, impairment, and death. There were ten mandatory vaccinations in the 50’s and early 60’s, most of which were not truly necessary. Today, children are expected to have an average of 36, beginning often at two days old and continuing into young adulthood. The steady escalation in the number of vaccines administered has been followed by an identical rise in the incidence of auto-immune diseases (rheumatoid arthritis, sub acute lupus erythematosus, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis, and asthma) seen in children. Autism now affects every 36 in 1000 children vaccinated, and SIDS has increased by 400% since the rise in DPT and MMR vaccinations. While there is a genetic transmission of some of these diseases, many are probably due to the injury from foreign protein particles, mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde and other toxic agents injected in vaccines.
Babies under two months old are still forming an immune system. Their brains and bodies are learning to deal with foreign agents and the army they need to fight off invaders is not ready. MMR vaccines are routinely given to newborns and children under two years old. The result, in many cases, is a sudden onset of encephalitis or brain inflammation, seizures, respiratory distress, cardiac arrest. Another vaccination within the first two years of life is the DPT vaccine with much the same result as the MMR and another immediate result is autism.
Autism was first identified in 1943 by a German doctor at Johns Hopkins. Coincidentally, Germany began mandatory diphtheria vaccinations in 1939. The rate of diphtheria cases spiraled the following year to more than 150,000. In 1975, Germany stopped imposing the mandatory pertussis vaccine, and though ten percent of German children still voluntarily get vaccinated, the rate of infection has steadily decreased proportional to the numbers of non-vaccinated children.
Children need our protection. There is a history and an agenda to the increased usage of vaccines that is too lengthy for viable use in this text, but certainly accessible to those who want/need to know.
