Dr. Julia’s Inn: Vaccines—safe or health risk?

There is no more heated debate today than the topic of vaccinations. Are they dangerous, or are they safe? Are they depressive to the immune system? Do vaccines cause autism, asthma, cancer and mutations in our genetic cells? We need to raise these questions, and we should seek the truth with an open mind and a glad heart. We need to do what is right for our children’s health so they can grow healthy and strong. We need to know the truth.

I just came back from a conference on Children’s Nutrition and Vaccinations. There were about 40 of us naturopathic physicians and alternative health professionals at this conference. During the two-day seminar, all of us at one time cried silently for what we had done to our babies, all in the name of medicine. The lies we are told and what we are led to believe. Here is some of the disturbing information I found out. All of this is documented and can be found in the Merck Manual National Vaccine Information Center, American Journal of Epidemiology, New England Journal of Medicine.

Let’s start out with Psalms 139:14. We are fearfully and wonderfully made, and we can rejoice at the fact that He made us, and He made the foods that we need for our health and well-being. Let no one distract you from your search for the truth about vaccinations. Parents need to become educated before vaccinations are given to loved ones. Reading only pro-vaccine literature from your doctor’s office does not inform one about the adverse effects of vaccinations and the complications. Who profits from the sale of vaccines? The physician, the vaccine makers, the government? While I was at my seminar, I learned a very disturbing fact: Congress is very well aware that vaccines harm. Twenty dollars of every vaccine administered goes to a fund established so that if a person is harmed by a vaccine, they have the money already available for a lawsuit. This was very interesting to me personally, for my son, Scott, would not have a meningitis vaccination. He was told by the university that he had to have a vaccine. He stood up for his rights, and I got a bill from the university for the vaccine that he did not have. Scott’s grades would not be released if I did not pay this bill.

Vaccination is a medical procedure that carries a risk of injury or death. As a parent, it is your responsibility to become educated about the benefits and risks of vaccines to make the most informed, responsible vaccination decisions.

Following are some facts:

1. Your doctor is required by law to provide you with vaccination benefits/risk information materials before your child is vaccinated. Consumer groups, including the National Vaccine Information Center, work with the government health agencies. Keep this in mind when you are advised about vaccines. Informational brochures are provided by the drug companies that manufacture the vaccines. Keep this in mind.

2. Your doctor is required by law to keep permanent records of all vaccinations given, including the vaccine manufacturer’s name and lot number. Ask for a copy of your records.

3. Your doctor is required by law to report all adverse events, including injuries and deaths that occur within 30 days after vaccination, to federal health authorities. If your doctor refuses to report a reaction following vaccination, you have the right to report this to the government yourself.

4. If your child is left permanently brain damaged or dies as a result of a vaccine reaction, you may be entitled to benefits under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986. By fall of 1995, the Federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program had compensated nearly 1,000 families at a cost of $600 million.

Questions for a parent to ask

Is my child sick right now?

Has my child had a bad reaction to vaccines before?

Does my child have a personal or family history of vaccine reactions?

Does my child have a personal or family history of this disease that would warrant this vaccine?

Do I have full information about the vaccine side effects?

Do I know how to identify a vaccine reaction?

Do I know how to report a vaccine reaction?

Do I know the name of this vaccine, manufacturer’s name and lot number?

Is it a single dose or a multiple dose?

Is thimerosal/mercury in this vaccine?

Do you know that when a school district denies your right to claim a religious exemption, they are violating your federally-protected civil rights under the First Amendment? I was told in class there are no mandatory vaccines. Extreme pressure is placed on a parent for not signing permission slips and accepting all responsibility for the toxic waste that is going into their precious baby’s system. If vaccines are good for our children, then why do we have to sign a release form?

Following are some very disturbing vaccination statistics:

1992 American Journal of Epidemiology shows children die eight times more frequently than normal within three days after getting a DPT vaccination.

A preliminary study by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) found children who received the HiB vaccine were found to be five times more likely to contract the disease than children who had not received the vaccine.

The New England Journal of Medicine, July 1994 issue, said a study found that more than 80 percent of children younger than 5 years of age who had contracted whooping cough had been fully vaccinated.

The Sabin oral polio vaccine is the only known cause of polio in the U.S. today.

Let’s look at the following polio facts:

Polio is an intestinal virus that attacks nerve cells of the brain and spinal cord.

In 1942, it was determined that paralysis from polio was common in the limbs that were injected with DPT.

Children who receive a polio vaccine are eight times more likely to get polio within a month of that vaccine (New England Journal of Medicine, February 1995).

When the U.S. began polio vaccination, the incidence of polio doubled overall. Vermont, for example, had a 642 percent increase in polio.

The CDC shows that every case of polio in the U.S. since 1979 was caused by the oral polio vaccine.

The SV-40 virus from monkey kidneys used in the vaccine production is heavily linked to cancer in humans, particularly bone, lung and brain cancers.

Fifty percent of the African Green Monkeys used in the making of polio vaccines were infected with siminal immunodeficiency virus (SIV). SIV in monkeys is closely related to HIV in humans. There are many people who believe that HIV is a result of SIV.

Formaldehyde and neomycin are added now to this vaccine (Merck and Co.).
