This week Martin Foley, the acting Health Minister in the Victorian government called those of us who do not wish to vaccinate our children and those who speak out about the lack of choice in this serious matter ‘irresponsible rogues’. Referring to new data which indicated that the Australian state of Victoria had now reached the 95 per cent target for childhood immunisation required for “herd immunity” the minister stated:
“This record is proof that parents don’t buy into lies of irresponsible rogues putting out myths about immunisation”
The myth of Herd Immunity
The herd immunity myth as it is applied to vaccine induced immunity took hold decades ago when vaccination proponents argued that vaccines provided lifelong immunity in the same way as natural immunity. Natural immunity lasts a lifetime whereas vaccine induced immunity does not.
Vaccine-induced herd immunity is a lie used to frighten doctors, public-health officials, other medical personnel, and the public into accepting vaccinations – Dr. Russell Blaylock MD
Minister, we do not lie about the dangers of vaccines. We refute the often repeated mantra that vaccinations are very safe. In 2011, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that vaccines are “unavoidably unsafe.” The U.S Vaccine Injury Court has paid out over $3 billion in damages.
The U.S. government created this specific court in 1986 to protect pharmaceutical companies from the direct lawsuits that were arising due to the preponderance of illnesses and injuries that were stemming from the company’s vaccination products. By establishing the Vaccine Court, the government now protects the pharmaceutical industry by trying the cases and awarding damages from a federal excise tax added to the cost of each dosage of a vaccine.
It is time that Australian parents are told the truth and not fed lies by their governments both federal and state. Many of us who speak out about the ever increasing list of vaccines forced on the population were once pro-vaccine and vaccinated both ourselves and our children. Many have learnt the hard way by having our children damaged by what our governments refer to as ‘safe’ vaccines. Others have become researchers spending many long hours learning that vaccines are not necessary and have only been used for little over 200 years.
Infectious diseases that are now feared and for which there are vaccines to be given were disappearing before the advent of vaccines. Improved living conditions such as good nutrition, education and sanitation were the catalysts for this positive change. There is no need and indeed it is very harmful to be injecting babies from birth with hepatitis B vaccines containing aluminium to stimulate the new immune system of an infant. This over-vaccination of young children today is madness and may well be judged as one of the most stupid mistakes humans have ever made. In Australia today:
By the time a child is five, s/he will have received a total of 41 vaccine doses when the schedule has been followed to the letter. This rises to 46 vaccine doses when the recommended yearly influenza vaccines are included, and then to 50 doses when the two recommended antenatal vaccines, Influenza, Diphtheria, Tetanus and Whooping Cough are also included.
Author of In the wake of Vaccines, Barbara Loe Fisher writes”
“Instead of epidemics of measles and polio, we have epidemics of chronic autoimmune and neurological disease: In the last 20 years rates of asthma and attention-deficit disorder have doubled, diabetes and learning disabilities have tripled, chronic arthritis now affects nearly one in five Americans and autism has increased by 300 percent or more in many states.”
Acting health minister Foley uses the word ‘immunisation’ when referring to the practice of ‘vaccination’. But does he understand the meaning of this frequently bandied about term?
What is Vaccination?
The World Health Organisation (WHO) describes a vaccine as:
… a biological preparation that improves immunity to a particular disease. A vaccine typically contains an agent that resembles a disease causing microorganism, and is often made from weakened or killed forms of the microbe, its toxins or one of its surface proteins. The agent stimulates the body’s immune system to recognize the agent as foreign, destroy it, and ‘remember’ it, so that the immune system can more easily recognize and destroy any of these microorganisms that it later encounters
Dr Philip Incao describes the limitations of vaccination
Vaccinations are usually effective in preventing an individual from manifesting a particular illness, but they do not improve the overall strength or health of the individual nor of the immune system.
Dr Lucija Tomljenovic describes in Forced Vaccinations: For the Greater Good? how vaccines fail to bring about cellular immunity and thus protection from disease
… vaccines primarily stimulate humoral immunity (antibody-based or Th2 responses) while they have little or no effect on cellular immunity (cytotoxic T-cells, Th1 responses), which is absolutely crucial for protection against viral as well as some bacterial pathogens. Tomljenovic suggests that this failure to bring about cellular immunity may be why booster shots of vaccines are often needed.
What is Immunisation?
There are two compartments to the human immune system.
1. The humoral immune system (or Th2 function)
The humoral immune system produces antibodies in the bloodstream as a response to the presence of foreign antigens in the body. When we give a vaccination we are greatly stimulating the antibody production (Th2) and avoiding the inflammatory response. (Th1). If a vaccine stimulated the whole immune system we would get all the symptoms of disease such as the fever, malaise, pain and discharge.
2. The cellular or cell-mediated immune system (or Th1 function)
The cellular immune system gets rid of foreign antigens through the work of cells in the thymus, tonsils, adenoids, spleen and the lymph system. This action of ridding the body of foreign antigens is known as an acute inflammatory response of the body. This is manifested by the classical signs such as fever, pain, malaise and discharge of mucus, pus, skin rash or diarrhoea. These are signs of illness that indicate our immune system is working to expel foreign matter from our body.
According to Dr Incao:
A growing number of scientists believe that the large increase in allergic and autoimmune diseases (which stimulate the humoral branch of the immune system) throughout America, Europe, Australia, and Japan, is caused by the lack of stimulation of the cellular branch due to the lack of acute inflammatory illnesses and discharges in childhood.
This is what the public deserve to be told. Children need to have their natural immunity challenged by the childhood infectious diseases such as measles, mumps and rubella not vaccines.
As we continue to add more and more vaccinations to the childhood schedule the assault on the immune system worsens. The manifestation of the disease may be suppressed but the disease actually never gets resolved. The organisms continue to circulate in the body causing further disease. Thus the scene is ripe for the development of autoimmune diseases such as asthma, diabetes, eczema and many other debilitating conditions.
What determines the autoimmune disease you can develop depends on which tissues in are attacked by auto-antibodies. If the insulin producing cells of the pancreas are attacked then insulin dependent (juvenile) diabetes can occur.
Vaccines injure children
Vaccines injure children, and the U.S. government has an entire division set up to compensate families. Total compensation paid over the life of the program is approximately $3.7 billion.
As a result an increasing and alarming number of children have chronic conditions which include autism, asthma, allergies, and seizures and are conditions for which those affected need much care.
In Australia, even if a vaccine injury is verbally acknowledged as being attributed to a vaccine, it is not mandatory that reported for further investigation. There is no compensation scheme in Australia despite repeated calls for such. However 19 countries around the world have introduced no-fault vaccine compensation schemes including Germany, New Zealand, USA, Britain and most European countries. These countries acknowledge that injury occurs but in Australia politicians and health officials keep telling us that vaccines are safe.
The number of reported adverse reactions to the MMR since 1990 is nearly 7,000, and most are not reported. Vaccines are not run through the same rigorous trials as drugs. A “vaccinated vs. unvaccinated” study has never been conducted. No one has ever done a double-blind placebo controlled study on multiple-dose vaccines given multiple times.
According to Aisha Dow the inner suburbs of Melbourne have the lowest vaccination rates with Melbourne having 70 to 75 per cent of five-year-olds fully vaccinated, and in the nearby suburbs of St Kilda and South Melbourne, the rate is 80 to 85 per cent. Suburbs boasting vaccination rates of close to 100 per cent at age five include Yarraville, Keilor, Moonee Ponds, Pascoe Vale, Epping, Eltham, Upwey, Hawthorn East, Greenvale and Chadstone. It is likely that socioeconomic factors are a factor in these rates of vaccination with those who are better off financially able to go without the government family payments that are only available to those who comply with unfair enforced vaccination. It has also been found that well educated parents are among those who choose not to vaccinate. This may go some way in explaining the vaccination rates listed here.
If you have a pre-school child and you happen to live in the Australian states of New South Wales or Victoria and unless your child is up to date with the national vaccination schedule, they are unable to attend child care services such as long day care, preschool/kindergarten, family day care and occasional care. Such is the state of our punitive vaccination laws in Australia which also include loss of family benefits/rebates and family tax benefits for failure to comply with our strict vaccination schedule.
Nature has long been seen as the enemy by our ‘health’ system. New technologies continue to flourish and death is deferred.
Radical Philosopher Ivan Illich described the transformation of the human condition, clearly depicting our state of un-health.
By transforming pain, illness, and death from a personal challenge into a technical problem, medical practice expropriates the potential of people to deal with their human condition in an autonomous way and becomes the source of a new kind of un-health.
Sadly our mainstream media continues to be silent about these developments and instead gives relentless voice to politicians who attack those who simply want to bring up healthy children and grandchildren free from vaccine injury and suppression of their natural immunity. Not much to ask surely!
