What Moms Need To Know About Vaccines

Getting Flu Shot

 

HPV VACCINE??? Although 90 percent of cervical cancer is believed to be caused by HPV, it is still only about 4% of people with HPV that will get cervical cancer. And, it is my opinion that this vaccine, will cause women to have a false sense of security about cervical cancer and not have routine PAP tests, as well as possibly make them feel they do not need to “protect” themselves from other STD’s as well as AIDS.

What about the Chicken Pox Vaccine?
The chicken-pox vaccine, is not a life-long protection….this can and will proven to be very harmful to unborn children of women who received this vaccine and then are exposed to someone with chicken pox or shingles while pregnant…..the children that began getting this vaccine are in high school now….so it won’t be long. Not to mention, that getting chicken pox as a child is not near the problem as getting it as an adult…..when these vaccines are not protecting these kids anymore….they will be adults. How many 18 to 25 year old people do think are going to go and get a “booster” for chicken pox???? Maybe we are going to have to make them mandatory?
******************************

Even though Merck has said it will stop spending money in a continued pursuit to make it’s HPV vaccine mandatory – Merck has already been successful in it’s “consumer mis-information campaign”. Since there is already enough confusion and concern about this vaccine and cervical cancer, the success of Merck’s vaccine is essentially guaranteed.

We have short memories in this country, and since the media is in the practice of repeating and re-repeating ‘talking-points’ masquerading as ‘facts’, this is not going to change anytime soon.

Never the less, I took some time today to gather some information on vaccines, that you may or may not be aware of. We need to stick together as the collective consumers of this country, and help open each-others eyes to the deceptions being put in front of us by Corporate America.

So, a little bit more about the HPV vaccine.

Although 90 percent of cervical cancer is believed to be caused by HPV, it is still only about 4% of people with HPV that will get cervical cancer. And, it is my opinion that this vaccine, will cause women to have a false sense of security about cervical cancer and not have routine PAP tests, as well as possibly make them feel they do not need to “protect” themselves from other STD’s as well as AIDS.

[Drug-industry analyst Steve Brozak of W.B.B. Securities has projected Gardasil sales of at least $1 billion per year _ and billions more if states start requiring the vaccine. “I could not think of a bigger boost,” he said.] — read entire article

In its product manufacturer insert, Merck states that “Vaccination does not substitute for routine cervical cancer screening. Women who receive GARDASIL should continue to undergo cervical cancer screening per standard of care.” Merck also states that “The duration of immunity following a complete schedule of immunization with GARDASIL has not been established.” — see complete article

Below, Meryl Nass, MD, whose medical expertise includes vaccine safety, epidemiology and biological warfare, provides insight into the medical and ethical concerns — and the unanswered scientific questions about Merck’s Gardasil vaccine. Among the issues addressed by Dr. Nass:

Unlike infectious diseases that spread in schools — like polio and measles — HPV is only transmitted sexually. Why, then, is Merck seeking mandatory vaccine orders? Is it deliberately to usurp parental rights and responsibilities?

Since boys transfer the HPV virus to girls, why don’t boys get vaccinated? Why are only girls being pushed to take the vaccine?
There are over 30 HPV viruses. Of these, 10 may cause cancer. Merck’s vaccine is effective for only 4 of these potentially cancerous viruses. Therefore, PAP tests are still essential to detect cancer and save lives, as well as condoms, which remain the safest, most effective method for preventing HIV transfer and numerous sexually transmitted diseases.

The oversell of Gradasil is likely to mislead those vaccinated to think that they are safe when they are not. This has the potential of increasing both STDs and cancer. — see complete article

This is not the first time the pharmaceutical companies have gotten away with this type of thing….the chick-pox vaccine and the flu vaccine are other examples of this. These are illnesses that seldom cause death in the average person, except in the very young, the very old, and the very sick……so those are the people that “really” need this type of vaccine. But, it wouldn’t be as profitable for the pharmaceutical companies, if they were not getting as many people as possible to get these vaccines. This is why it is so important for them to put a large amount of effort into “convincing” the American people of the urgent need for these vaccines.

Take the FLU VACCINE —

What the public didn’t know in the fall of 2003 — the supposed spread of a deadly flu epidemic and a shortage of flu vaccine was little more than a joint government/ industry PR campaign — an operation that greatly increased flu vaccine makers’ profits while scaring the bejesus out of millions of Americans.

Across the country, people, especially children, were dying earlier in the flu season and in higher numbers than the experts had seen before. At least that’s what they said, and since they were nationally respected experts with impeccable qualifications, no one questioned them, nor the high-ranking government health bureaucrats who shared the microphone with them at press conferences about the flu. After all, what would these well-meaning people have to gain personally by misleading the public about the flu?

As it turns out, quite a lot. All it took to ignite a media feeding frenzy over the flu was a few well-placed suggestions by a few well-qualified people that this season could turn out to be far more deadly than usual. The media did the rest.

What the public wasn’t told was that the handful of experts who drove the story, by predicting doom and gloom in national news reports, either worked directly for the flu vaccine companies or served on the boards of special interest groups whose activities those companies funded. The public was also never told that the same pharmaceutical companies, which had peppered Congress with millions in political contributions over the last three years, were pressuring the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services — and ultimately its sub-agency, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) — to increase the number of people who bought their vaccines.see the complete article

More on the Chicken Pox Vaccine —

No one really knows what the long term ramifications of exposure to this virus in this unorthodox way are. Since it is so new, there is no long term data available. In fact there is no data to even suggest that after ten years, immunity from this vaccine is sufficient to prevent the disease — possibly leaving people vulnerable to getting chickenpox as adults when the risks of this illness are much greater!

Take, for example, the new chicken pox vaccine. Recently, there was a chicken pox outbreak in a New Hampshire daycare. Of the 25 infected kids, 17 had already been vaccinated. This was quite a surprise to officials at the CDC, who had thought the vaccine more effective and not counted on kids needing booster shots as soon as three years after they received the vaccine. In reality, very little is known about efficacy and safety of vaccines until they are already approved for use in babies and small children. Until the vaccine has been tested on millions of kids, we don’t really know what the rare and serious side effects are. And, until there is an outbreak among the vaccinated, we don’t really know when the vaccine wears off or how effective it really is. However, vaccines have been considered so important to public health in the past decades that these inconsistencies with drug approval have not been considered important or alarming. But what happens when these kids who were vaccinated and given their boosters for chicken pox are exposed to it as adults when many of them won’t have received their recommended boosters? Twenty percent of chicken pox fatalities occur in people over 30 years old. We will have successfully increased the danger of chicken pox, making it into the feared disease that public health officials would have us believe it is for our children. So, on top of changing the epidemiology of the disease from one that only 10 percent of 15-year-olds haven’t gotten, we’re also exposing our small kids to a wild card of possible side effects from the vaccines—whether those are caused by the actual viral material or the list of things that material is mixed with in the shot.

Then there is a vaccine being given to babies to prevent diarrhea —

The government warned on Tuesday of potentially life-threatening twisting of the intestines in infants vaccinated against a virus that is the leading cause of early childhood diarrhea.

The condition, called intussusception, is the same that led to the withdrawal of the first rotavirus vaccine eight years ago.

I can’t say who should get these vaccines and who should not. But I think we all need to know that facts, and make educated decisions about whether or not to use these vaccines. We can only do that if we are getting the truth about these vaccines from both our government and Corporate America.
