Childhood. Once out of the womb, you are confronted by a gauntlet of chemical challenges. By the time you are 6 months old you have already received 30 percent of your total lifetime toxic load of chemicals.
Some kids starts life with a genetic defect that affects metabolic functions and renders their bodies less efficient at excreting toxins. This predisposition can compromise their own immune systems. The cocktail of vaccines that most children are injected with early in life, especially those vaccines containing the mercury-based preservative thimerosal, can further overwhelm the already susceptible child's body immune system.
From 1988 until 2002, when it was removed from most vaccines as a health threat, thimerosal was a primary source of toxic mercury exposure for most children, who received up to 9 shots containing the additive by the time they were 6 months of age.
Childhood Vaccinations: If you grew up outside of USA, then you are better off than all children born and grew up here. Why? If you grew up in the United States you had to receive a series of up to 9 vaccinations for various diseases such as diphtheria before you could enter the public school system. These are mandatory vaccinations enforced by the country laws in each of the states. Many of these vaccines were administered to you as an infant.
Numerous countries have similar requirement, usually after convinced by the US Health Administration. Beside the disease-fighting agents, what else lurks in these vaccines that your body absorbed?
It is not the vaccines or the vaccination program that are the problem - it is the additives.(says Northeastern University pharmacy professor Richard Deth, a recognized expert on childhood vaccinations.)
Common vaccine additives include methyl mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde, MSG, sulfites, and ethylene glycol (which is also used as antifreeze). Most are used as preservatives and "adjuvants," a term referring to chemicals that can provoke your immune system into an early and longer-lasting response. Each of these additives, according to the British toxins authority Paula Baillie-Hamilton, has been linked to disorders ranging from brain and nerve damage to autism and attention deficit/ hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
The overall amount of mercury that you as a child received from vaccinations may represent your entire lifetime's safe amount of mercury exposure.
WARNING: That routine vaccinations are exposing many infants to quantities of mercury well above government health guidelines.
Ever since mass vaccination of infants began in the 20th Century reports of serious brain, cardiovascular, metabolic and other injuries started filling pages of medical journals, says Paula Baillie-Hamilton.
MYTHS WE CHERISH
VACCINATIONS ARE ALWAYS BENEFICIAL
The important advances against infectious diseases came about not from the introduction of vaccines, but from improved public health resulting from cleaner water intake (water-cure protocol) and more effective sewage disposal.
Vaccines are not always safe or effective.
1.A medical journal, The Lancet, reported in 1980 that a vaccine trial in India involving 260,000 people discovered that more cases of tuberculosis(TB) had occurred in people vaccinated against TB than among the unvaccinated.
2. The Journal of the American Medical Association printed an article on measles in 1990 that revealed: Although more than 95 percent of school-aged children in the U.S. are vaccinated against measles, measles outbreaks continue to occur in schools, and most cases in this setting occur among previously vaccinated children.
3. Though from 1990 through 1993 the FDA counted 54,072 adverse reactions to vaccinations, the agency also admitted this total represented only about 10 percent of actual adverse reactions because most physicians were reluctant to report the problems.
4. In a 1994 issue of The New England Journal of Medicine it was reported that at least 80 percent of children under the age of five(5) who came down with whooping cough had been vaccinated against whooping cough.
There is another downside to the most common vaccines and vaccination, especially for children. "It is not the vaccines or the vaccination program that are the problem - it is the additives," says Northeastern University pharmacy professor Richard Deth, a recognized expert on childhood vaccinations.
Most physicians are not even aware these additives exist, much less that they pose a problem. Perhaps some do, but kept silence about it? Why?
Symptoms of mercury toxicity in children have been documented as resembling symptoms of ADHD and autism.
"Few people realize that when they are getting a vaccine, not only are they getting a dose of the 'named' antigen or disease they're getting vaccinated against, such as diphtheria, but also a mixture of known toxic, brain-damaging, and cancer-promoting chemicals thrown in as preservatives and 'adjuvants,' which help to elicit an early, high, and long-lasting immune response," - Paula Baillie-Hamilton.
"Ever since mass vaccination of infants began in the 20th Century reports of serious brain, cardiovascular, metabolic and other injuries started filling pages of medical journals. Reports from several countries show that vaccinated children, in addition to having a lower IQ, also have a higher incidence of behavioural problems, asthma, and diabetes than unvaccinated children." says Paula Baillie-Hamilton, the British toxins and vaccines expert.
These reports of problems associated with vaccinations prompted J.Anthony Morris, former chief vaccine control officer for the FDA, to declare, " There is a great deal of evidence to prove that immunization o children does more harm than good."
In US, at least 9 childhood vaccinations are commonly required in each of the 50 states before a child can enter the public education system. These vaccine additives challenge young metabolisms and immune system that weren't designed - not that any of ours were - to process synthetic chemicals, so the toxins are shunted off by the liver to accumulate in organs and tissues. Numerous studies in the Journal of Applied Microbiology and other science journals have linked one of the most common vaccine preservatives, thimerosal, to a range of toxic side effects because it contains mercury.
At a time in 1991 when public health agencies were recommending vaccination containing thimerosal for infants, a prominent vaccinologist sent a memo warning executive at Merck, one of the drug makers using thimerosal, that "the mercury load appears rather large" for the six-month-olds receiving the shots. Their mercury dose from thimerosal was up to eighty-seven(87) times higher than government guidelines for the maximum daily consumption of mercury from fish. Were your child born at that period?
Eight years passed (1999) before federal health officials finally decided that routine vaccination could pose a health threat to infants. Even then the government only took the step of advising manufacturers to "consider" taking thimerosol out of vaccines. Merck did later introduce a mercury-free hepatitis B vaccine.
At a conference on vaccine safety in 2000, attended by 51 scientists and physicians from government and drug industry, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention specialist on immunizations admitted that "there is a growing recognition that cumulative exposure [to mercury in vaccine] may exceed safety guidelines." he was referring specifically to thimerosal and its effects on children, the elderly, the chronically ill, people with nutritional deficiencies, and those on certain medications.
Later in a commentary on this conference, Russell Blaylock decried how the collection of vaccine experts could only seem to agree that "as a long-term goal it was desirable to remove mercury from vaccines because it is a potentially preventable source of exposure." The words desirable and long-term were particularly offensive to Russell Blaylock because study data had been presented that thimerosal can possibly cause several neurodevelopmental disorder, one being attention deficit disorder (ADD).
"They are all fully aware that tiny babies are receiving doses that exceed even EPA safety limits, yet all they can say is that we must 'try to remove thimerosal as soon as possible.'" fumed Blaylock.
"Do they not worry about the tens of millions of babies that will continue receiving thimerosal-containing vaccines?"
The most obvious solution would be to use single-dose vials so preservative like thimerosal would no longer be necessary. But vaccine makers resist this option because it would raise costs, which they keep down by preserving vaccines in bulk quantities. The Tamiflu drug expires in three years also laced with concoctions of preservatives. Besides, vaccine executives argue, there is "uncertainty" in the research data about the toxicity of preservatives.
"What they are admitting, is that we have a form of mercury that has been used in vaccines since the 1930s and no one has bothered to study its effects on ... the brain[s] of infants. Only when such problems becomes obvious - that is, of epidemic proportion - and the legal profession becomes involved, do they [the vaccinologists] even notice there was a problem. This is a recurring theme in the government's regulatory agencies, as witnessed with fluoride, aspartame, MSG, dioxin, and pesticides issues." continued Blaylock.
