Remember we are not ‘pro-choice’ we are ‘anti-vaccine’ – Dr Heather Wolfson
One Doctor’s Surprising Answer to the Epidemic of Autoimmunity and Chronic Disease
Thomas Cowan, MD, argues for a direct causal relationship to a corresponding increase in the number of vaccines American children typically receive―approximately 70 vaccine doses by age eighteen. The goal of these vaccines is precisely what we’re now seeing in such abundance among our chronically ill children: the provocation of immune response.
Thomas Cowan’s latest book is one I can’t wait to read. I want to understand all about autoimmunity and how our increasing insane vaccine schedule is implicated.
Cowan begins his book with a description of how when he was growing up he never heard of children with chronic illness or of children who took prescription medicines.
Many of us had horrible diets, yet chronic disease among children was relatively unknown. No one had ever heard of autism, let alone a family member with autism.
I have to agree with his childhood recollections. Children with cancer or an autoimmune disease was unheard of in 1950s Australia.
In his work as a medical practitioner Thomas Cowan has had the experience of treating vaccinated children, partially vaccinated children and the unvaccinated. He writes that he rarely saw an unvaccinated child with any chronic illness however the same could not be said for those who were vaccinated many of whom were suffering from asthma, eczema, seizures and gut problems. This state of affairs he believes:
corresponded with the introduction in the late 1980s to the mid 1990s of certain adjuvants and excipients, as well as the introduction of ever more vaccines.
During his practice he has treated many children who had childhood infectious diseases such as whooping cough, chicken pox, rubella, mumps and measles. These children recovered well and did not develop complications.
1 in 2.5 children have an allergy
1 in 6 children has a developmental disability
1 in 9 children has attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder ADHD
1 in 11 children has asthma
1 in 13 children has severe food allergies
1 in 36 children has autism
He calls it ‘a national emergency’.
How did we get to such a state where we have so many sick children?
Cowan writes that the cause is environmental requiring us to do something about it. The problem as he sees it stems from the huge drop in infectious disease which ‘train the immune system’.
In writing Vaccines, Autoimmunity and the Changing Nature of Childhood Illness Cowan wanted to explain the nature of disease.
when we get sick there is a very certain sequence of events that happens: We are fine, then we get a fever, or we get hot then we get snot, and then we get better
In an interview with Dr Joseph Mercola he explains that he often wondered why disease follows this progression. His curiosity led to his researching the nature of fever along with the working of the cell and why our bodies follows this sequence of events in relation to disease.
Once you realise the wonder of this sequence of the events you can understand what happens when something is done to interfere with nature which Cowan describes as ‘thwarting of the sequence’. This is what happens in the context of vaccines leading to chronic disease. Vaccines cause a distortion in the immune response and increases the risk of cancer.
What happens inside the body of a child who gets a new viral disease.
When a new virus enters the body it distorts the cells whereupon the body begins its attack and produces a cell mediated immune response. This system consists of white blood cells which attack the infected cells, chewing them up and spitting them out – this is ‘snot’. This process takes about 5-10 days and over this time we consider the person affected ‘sick’ and all the while the virus has promoted a cell mediated response which clears the body of the virus and dead cells and rejuvenates the cells.
The humoral system which responds by making antibodies to the virus is also activated taking place after the cell mediated response. If the child meets a particular virus again then he/she will not get sick. This production of antibodies takes place around 6-8 weeks after the infection. ‘It is almost a 100% fool proof system’, says Cowan.
These are the two parts of our immune system.
When we vaccinate there is no cell mediated immune response. Vaccines provoke an antibody reaction but because there is no cell mediated response the immunity wears off and boosters are required. Adjuvants such as aluminium are required to stimulate this antibody reaction.
Such as Graves’ disease, inflammatory bowel disease, multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis, and systemic lupus erythematosus.
these diseases are characterised by an excessive antibody reaction
In autoimmunity there is non specific activation of the humoral immune system caused by the adjuvants such as aluminium. Vaccines stimulate humoral antibodies without a prior cell-mediated response.
There has never been until about the 1940s a situation where you have the stimulation of one without the other. So that’s what happens with vaccines, the whole point of a vaccine is to stimulate the humoral immunity, the humoral antibodies without a prior cell-mediated response.
It is not enough to just put the antigen in a vaccine along with saline. To make the vaccine stimulate humoral immunity, that is to produce antibodies, adjuvants such as aluminium or other irritants such as formaldehyde and mercury are necessary for the immune system to react. These are neurotoxins and should have no place in the human body.
The diseases that are characterized by suppressed cell-mediated immunity and heightened humoral immunity, you’re talking things like asthma, allergies, eczema and autoimmune diseases including Crohn’s, colitis, MS [multiple sclerosis], Sjogren’s syndrome, Hashimoto’s, etcetera. All of these are characterized by increased antibody production – that is what we mean by an autoimmune
Cowan states that the the fastest growing type of diseases are autoimmune diseases. Autoimmune diseases are soaring globally and together affect as many as one in five Americans today. Thomas Cowan’s Vaccines, Autoimmunity and the Changing Nature of Childhood Illness explains how our wonderful immune system has been ravaged by vaccines and includes chapters on treatment and diet protocols for autoimmune disease.
A must-read book on vaccines and autoimmunity and a history lesson on natural immunity that we all need to read and share.
One of the very severe conditions occurring in young teenagers following their human papilloma virus (HPV) vaccination is POTS or postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome.
On any given day they may experience the following symptoms:
- Orthostatic Intolerance (lightheadedness, dizziness)
- Chest pain
- Gastrointestinal cramps
- Inability to focus and concentrate for long periods
- Inability to read due to blurred vision
- Difficulty with recall
- Extreme fatigue
- Exercise Intolerance
- Appetite Disturbance
Because of the effect on blood pressure, people who suffer from POTS may not be able to stay seated for long intervals or stand for a long period of time, as this will affect their circulation. They will not be able to maintain that posture without feeling dizzy, lightheaded, and may even faint.
POTS is a form of dysautonomia
Dysautonomia refers to a disorder of the autonomic nervous system (ANS)–the main bodily system that controls organ function and involuntary actions of the body.
During her 12 year-old health check Nina was given her first shot of the quadrivalent HPV vaccine Gardasil. Two months later Nina’s hair began to fall out and shortly after began to complain of flu-like symptoms. Her episodes of fatigue and nausea became more regular and as her very concerned mother recalled:
She was becoming ill at all times of the day. She would sleep on the bathroom floor hoping not to vomit one more time. I made repeated visits to the pediatrician’s office and pleaded with them to help our child. Thoughts were running through my head as to why she became ill so suddenly. Then I remembered my mother’s intuition moment and realized our world began to change after the Gardasil vaccine. The pediatrician was in agreement that we would not proceed with the second dose of the vaccine due to Nina’s illness.
Nina was eventually diagnosed with dysautonomia by Dr. Hassan Abdallah at The Children’s Heart Institute in Reston, Virginia.
Nina’s experience post Gardasil vaccination is not unusual
Lucija Tomljenovic et al studied a 14-year-old previously healthy girl who presented with flu-like symptoms, sore throat, low-grade fever, fatigue, swollen glands, and intense headaches in February 2009, approximately 2 months after her second quadrivalent HPV vaccine injection. They report that the 14-year-old suffered such debilitating symptoms such as
persistent headaches, dizziness, recurrent syncope, poor motor coordination, weakness, fatigue, myalgias, numbness, tachycardia, dyspnea, visual disturbances, phonophobia, cognitive impairment, insomnia, and gastrointestinal disturbances.
The researchers state that this case clearly fulfilled the criteria for POTS/CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome) secondary to the quadrivalent HPV vaccine booster injection and that this is the seventh case of POTS associated with the qHPV vaccine Gardasil reported in the literature.
They also report that the highest number of both POTS- and CFS-related symptom reports was associated with HPV vaccines when compared with 2 other vaccines (Menactra and Varivax).
Dr Bill Anderson treats people with dysautonomia. He states that it is common to find this condition in those patients who became injured after HPV vaccines. He explains that any significant brain injury can affect our vital autonomic nervous system.
Many of the girls and boys who have become ill after Gardasil have clearly suffered brain injuries. This was described in a 2012 research article Death after Quadrivalent Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Vaccination: Causal or Coincidental by Lucija Tomljenovic and Christopher Shaw.
The researchers examined brain tissue from two women who tragically died after vaccination with Gardasil. Their tests revealed an autoimmune vasculitis (inflammation of blood vessels) brought on by the cross-reactive HPV-16L1 antibodies binding to the wall of blood vessels. The researchers claim that their finding of HPV-16L1 particles in cerebral blood vessels and adhering to the walls of these vessels clearly shows that “vaccine derived immune complexes are capable of penetrating the blood brain barrier”.
Dysautonomia is an imbalance between the sympathetic nervous system and the parasympathetic nervous system
The Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) controls heart rate, blood pressure, temperature, digestion, salivation, perspiration, pupil dilation/constriction, and other functions. The ANS consists of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. Dysautonomia is an imbalance between the sympathetic nervous system and the parasympathetic nervous system.
This condition is serious and its connection with Gardasil is acknowledged by Bill Anderson. He states that Gardasil injured girls often end up with POTS and its associated symptoms caused by the increase in sympathetic drive which results in increased heart rate, lowered blood pressure and collapse, and inability to digest food.
This research into POTS and dysautonomia is important and adds to our understanding of the pathophysiology at play in the increasing numbers of sick girls and boys after Gardasil. Many of the these very ill teenagers are told they are mentally ill – ‘that it is all in their head’. They are frequently told to ‘just get on with it’. But without proper diagnosis they cannot ‘get on with it’ and even then treatment is difficult, costly and long-term.
The HPV vaccines, Gardasil, Gardasil 9 and Cervarix are dangerous vaccines and must be taken off the market. There is no proof that HPV causes cervical cancer.
Gardasil was fast-tracked though the U.S FDA, the food and drug administration, a process usually reserved for a drug or treatment for which there was no treatment available. Gardasil did not meet this criteria. There was no epidemic of cervical cancer and the Pap smear programs were in place and able to pick up abnormal smears.
In the interests of this generation of teenagers about to be vaccinated with these fast-tracked HPV vaccines we need to bring back some commonsense. For that I commend the work of Professor Peter Duesberg and the findings presented in a paper published in Molecular Cytogenetics (2013) of which Peter Duesberg is one of six authors which found that the changes seen in cervical cells are caused by exposure to carcinogens such as cigarette smoke. According to the authors, the pieces of inactive HPV DNA that can be found in cervical cancers are from infections or warts that occurred 20-50 years before the cancer.

Even though the award-winning journalist and documentary filmmaker Joan Shenton was refused permission to enter Australia this week she will be attending all 7 screenings of her documentary Sacrificial Virgins via Skype. Joan Shenton made the following statement in regard to her visa denial:
I’m very disappointed not to be able to meet in person the parents across Eastern Australia who want to know more about the risks and supposed benefits of HPV vaccinations, as well as the families who’ll be there to share stories of their loved one’s death or permanent disability. But I look forward to the screenings of Sacrificial Virgins and to having the same conversations over the air.
Sacrificial Virgins a documentary film trilogy – which investigates widespread global concerns over the safety of HPV vaccines, Gardasil and Cervarix has won 2 awards for investigative journalism: The prestigious Best of the Festival award and the Watchdog Spirit Award at the Watchdog Film Festival, held in Brisbane, Australia.
Sacrificial Virgins probes the controversies surrounding Gardasil HPV vaccination programs – associated with many cases of severe neurological damage and also deaths in girls and young women – and presents new scientific evidence that questions these programs’ ability even to deliver the cervical cancer prevention that is the chief rationale for their existence. A very high proportion of 12-13 year old girls and boys in Australia are routinely administered Gardasil free of charge in school as part of the National Immunisation Program (NIP).
Joan Shenton should not have had her visa delayed which has resulted in her not appearing in person. But she will be there via Skype along with International experts such as Dr Christopher Exley who is one of the world’s experts on aluminium.
Professor Exley has been researching the subject for 30 years and says that he is not ‘anti aluminium’ but that it has never been demonstrated to be safe. Exley speaks about the history of the metal and explains that although it is abundant in the earth’s crust we have only been using it for 130 years. It was called ‘the metal of the future’ and formed the basis of much of our cookware in the 20th century. In relation to aluminium in vaccines, Exley asks: ‘How many experts did they consult before using the adjuvant?’ How would they know it was safe. He wonders how they could know the answer to this when he as an expert doesn’t even know.
Shockingly the aluminium adjuvant in these vaccines does not require clinical approval. It is the vaccine itself that is subject to an approval process.
Gardasil contains 225 mcgs of aluminium per shot and Gardasil 9 has 500 mcgs per dose. It is vital that we are able to speak about HPV vaccines and the damage with at least 80,000 adverse events following their administration.
Aluminium causes the body to turn against itself. This is what we are seeing in many of the girls who have had their lives severely affected after their Gardasil shots. One of the severe adverse events is premature ovarian failure in young teenage girls. POF occurs due to the destruction by aluminium of the maturation process of the eggs in the ovaries. Shockingly this condition is underreported at the present time because many girls are on the contraceptive pill but once they stop the damage will be obvious. This is very serious, more infertility and loads of heartache to follow.
Other experts include Professor Peter Duesberg from Berkeley University who brings some much needed sanity to the whole HPV vaccine debate when he states:
The HPV found in tumour cells is a fossil, a fragment left over from a former infection…It does nothing.
Other experts joining the events are Norma Erickson who has researched and written so many enlightening articles on SaneVax along with Freda Birrell who heads the UK Association of HPV Vaccine Injured Daughters and is featured on the Sacrificial Virgins documentary. The tour will also be attended by many of the girls who have had their health damaged after their Gardasil vaccines.
Here is an interview with Joan Shenton on 3AW radio earlier this week. She was interviewed by presenter Tom Elliott who quite rightly gave her time and respected her right to free speech.
Tickets are still available for the Sacrificial Virgins tour.
