Autism Link with Vaccinations Heats Up

"Parents Doubt Vaccine Safety" was the headline of a story from the October 30, 2000 USA Today. This story stems from a study sponsored by the National Network for Immunization Information. For this study, a phone survey of 1,600 expectant parents and parents of children age 6 and younger was conducted. The results of the study were released at the American Academy of Pediatrics meeting in Chicago.

The results showed that 25% of parents are concerned that children's immune systems could be weakened by too many vaccines, and nearly that many say, "children get more immunizations than are good for them." Amazingly, a full 14% of the parents say they would opt out of at least one vaccine, if they were to have another child in the future.

Much of the public concern about this issue has been sparked by recent links between vaccines and autism or other childhood diseases. So strong is the evidence that Congressional hearings have been convened to focus on the issue.

Barbara Loe Fisher, of the National Vaccine Information Center responded by saying, "The rapidly rising number of vaccines required in recent years may be at least a factor in causing the huge increase in learning disabilities and diseases such as autism and asthma."

This subject has been getting much needed press time lately. This included a Sunday, Nov. 12th, 2000 CBS special segment titled "MMR Vaccine and Autism" on their highly acclaimed TV show 60 Minutes.

Doctors Group Calls for End to Mandatory Childhood Vaccines.

The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, (AAPS), on November 2, 2000 issued a press release calling for a moratorium on all government mandated vaccines. This release was based on a resolution passed unanimously by the group at their 57th annual meeting.

Jane M. Orient, MD, AAPS Executive Director stated, "Our children face the possibility of death or serious long-term adverse effects from mandated vaccines that are not necessary or that have very limited benefits." Orient went on to say, "This is not a vote against vaccines. This resolution only attempts to halt blanket vaccine mandates by government agencies and school districts that give no consideration for the rights of the parents or the individual medical condition of the child."

According to the AAPS press release -- Forty-two states have mandatory vaccine policies, and many children are required to have 22 shots before first grade. On top of that, as a condition for school attendance, many school districts require vaccination for diseases such as hepatitis B -- primarily an adult disease, usually spread by multiple sex partners, drug abuse or an occupation with exposure to blood. And yet, children under the age of 14 are three times more likely to suffer adverse effects, including death, following the hepatitis B vaccine than to catch the disease itself.

The press release also mentions numerous cases where parents were threatened by local health officials with having their children taken from them for abuse if they refused to vaccinate. In response to this situation Dr. Orient of the AAPS concluded by saying, "It is obscene to threaten to seize a child just because his parents refuse medical treatment that is obviously unnecessary and perhaps even dangerous. The AAPS believes that parents, with the advice of their doctors, should make decisions about their children's medical care, not government bureaucrats. This resolution affirms that position."

If You Haven't Received a Flu Shot Yet…

Consider Yourself Lucky!

Here's Why:

· If an individual has had five consecutive flu shots his/her chances of getting Alzheimer's Disease is ten times higher than if they had one, two or no shots. (Hugh Fudenberg, MD, the world's leading immunogeneticist and 13th most quoted biologist of our times)

· Flu vaccine manufacturers are notoriously inaccurate at predicting the appropriate viruses to use in an individual year's vaccine, rendering the vaccine ineffective. (Randall Neustaedter OMD author of The Vaccine Guide)

· Flu vaccine is relatively ineffective in those patients most at risk of flu complications. (Ronald Festa, DC)

· The vaccine has caused Gullaine-Barre Syndrome in recipients during several different flu seasons. (Tedd Koren, DC)

· Those most at risk of flu complications probably share a higher risk of adverse reactions to the flu vaccine as well. (Randall Neustaedter OMD)

· Fluzone, the new flu vaccine for babies contains mercury, chicken embryos, formaldehyde, sucrose, sodium phosphate, sodium chloride, gelatin, polyethylene glycol p-isooctylphenyl ether, and hemaggluttinin.

Hepatitis B Vaccine Continues to Kill Infants

By Dr. Joseph Mercola

The 2002 immunization schedule encourages the routine use of hepatitis B vaccine for all infants before hospital discharge. These recommendations are inexcusable.

The central nervous system of a newborn infant is particularly susceptible to toxic influences. This is one of the reasons why the hepatitis B vaccine is such a problem. If it were given later in life, as is done in many other countries, it would not be as much of a problem.

This is especially tragic as there is virtually no legitimate indication to give this vaccine at birth. The only infants who may benefit are those born to women infected with hepatitis B.

The central fact, and the one that helps to explain these insane recommendations, is that Merck, the maker of the hepatitis B vaccine, makes about $1 billion a year from vaccine sales.

I have seen many dozens of children who were given this vaccine on their first day of life and subsequently developed autism. Others, like Michael Belkin's daughter, weren't as lucky and died immediately after the vaccine. Michael is a successful Wall Street financial analyst with his own company, and has testified to Congress on this issue.

Hepatitis B is a rare, mainly blood-transmitted disease. In 1996, only 54 cases of the disease were reported to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the 0 to 1 age group. There were 3.9 million births that year, so the observed incidence of hepatitis B in the 0 to 1 age group was just 0.001 percent.

In the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) there were 1,080 total reports of adverse reactions from hepatitis B vaccine in 1996 in the 0 to 1 age group, with 47 deaths reported.

Think of that in terms of probability: the possibility of contracting the disease is exceedingly difficult for children and only 1.25 percent of those who are exposed will actually develop the most serious complication!

This type of "protecting the needle in the haystack" medicine is absurd at best, dangerous at worst.

What follows is another tragic story of a woman looking for answers from Michael Belkin to explain the death of her son, who died shortly after receiving hepatitis B vaccine:

"Michael ~ I'm sorry for blindsiding you with this e-mail but I am praying you can help us. I was given your name and e-mail from a lady at the vaccine place I called today.

We buried our 24-day-old son last night. He died Friday morning while I was breastfeeding him. I had brought him up to my chest to burp him and noticed blood running out of his mouth. My son died in my arms and nothing I could do saved him.

They did a rush autopsy and found NOTHING wrong... can't even explain where he was bleeding from. We have to wait six or more agonizing weeks for his toxicology reports now. I've wracked my brain as to what has caused this. The coroner says SIDS and I don't buy it. During the service, it popped into my head that he had been vaccinated for Hep B about 32 hours prior to his death.

Please, I need some help with this and have no idea where to begin. No one here will listen and says that I'm a grieving mother grasping at straws, but I have no other explanation. My heart aches so much and I'm blaming myself even more now knowing I signed the consent to have it done. If you can send me any info you have as to the symptoms in deaths or ANYTHING you may have on this, I'd greatly appreciate it. Both my husband and I just know that a cause of death from SIDS doesn't sit well. Kylie"

Michael Belkin's response follows:

Kylie,

I'm really sorry about your son. Same thing happened to my daughter.

Below are links to start educating yourself. I suggest going through the online VAERS database and selecting all deaths/hepatitis B vaccine (they might call it just hepatitis). Almost a thousand I think. Read the text at the end of each record. That should give you some perspective.

There's nothing you can do to bring your son back, but you can educate yourself about how the immune system works and perhaps help others avoid the same fate by becoming active in the NVIC [National Vaccine Information Center] after you learn how the 'system' works.

I won't tell you what to do, that is of course for you and your husband to decide. I will tell you what we have done. We now have a 2 ½-year-old son--no vaccines, no antibiotics, focus on nutrition, emphasis on www.mercola.com diet (omega-3 fish oil, lot of vegetables (mostly organic), high protein, wild salmon, meat (buffalo, ostrich). He is healthier and more mature than most of his peer group.

[Michael Belkin is president of Belkin Limited, a financial and economic forecasting firm in New York City.]

So what can you do? Please tell every pregnant woman you know about this issue. They need to know the facts BEFORE they are in the hospital so they have time to make an informed decision. If they are still convinced their child needs hepatitis B vaccine, beg them to make sure their child does not receive the vaccine as a newborn. Delay the vaccine until the child is really at a possible risk for the disease, like late adolescence.

I have shown dozens of times in this newsletter drugs that are thought to be safe pulled from the market after they have killed dozens or hundreds of people. I am hopeful that hepatitis B vaccinations in newborns will be stopped. Medical science will have to recognize the truth sooner or later.

Drug deaths pale in comparison to the devastation in lost lives that are resulting from implementation of this hepatitis B recommendation.

To find out more about the vaccine issue, including how to protect your children, consider "The Danger of Vaccines, and How You Can Legally Avoid Them" audiotape. In August 2002, I hosted a timely and important teleconference featuring nationally renowned vaccine expert, Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, to discuss the real dangers of vaccines and how you can legally avoid them. This professionally recorded 90-minute cassette presents that full conference, and many listeners have called it the most comprehensive overview of the topic to date. It will help you:

  • Understand why vaccines are essentially loaded guns aimed at your child's body
  • Find out how you can disarm your school nurses by legally avoiding vaccines
  • Learn what approaches you can take to immunize your child against disease safely--and for life

Study Shows Vaccinated Children Twice as Likely to Get Asthma and Allergies

In a study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics were findings that supported three previous studies on the same subject. This study reviewed data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, which was conducted by the National Center for Health Statistics from 1988 to 1994. Parents of 13,944 infants, children and adolescents from 2 months through 16 years old, were interviewed to check their history of asthma and allergies in relationship to the children receiving the DPT (diptheria-tetanus-pertussis) vaccine.


The results showed a significant increase in the likelihood of children to get allergies and asthma after having received the DPT shot. The following numbers are the increase in chance that a child will have these problems if they are vaccinated with DPT. Asthma - 2.0 times more likely. Severe allergic reaction - 1.5 times more likely. Sinus problems - 1.81 times more likely. Wheezing - 1.23 times more likely. Nose and eye problems - 2.22 times more likely. Respiratory problems - 1.68 times more likely.


The authors of the study were quick to point out that their findings were not unique, and did in fact reproduce findings of other studies. "Six studies have recently addressed the association between pertussis or DTP immunizations and allergy-related disease. Our results are similar to findings reported from three retrospective cohort studies.

U.S. does an about-face on hepatitis B vaccine: Shot no longer recommended

By John Hanchette / Gannett News Service


WASHINGTON -- Federal health authorities -- under mounting pressure from Congress, vaccine safety advocates, parents of dead and injured children, and increasing numbers of dissenting doctors -- have reversed policy on the controversial hepatitis B vaccine.
The vaccine is no longer universally recommended for newborns.
Hepatitis B is a serious disease that attacks the liver and can remain silent without symptoms for years.
In a surprise announcement by the U.S. Surgeon General, the U.S. Public Health Service and the AmericanAcademy of Pediatrics, the federal policy is now described as deeming the inoculation proper for use at birth only if the baby's mother tests positive for the disease or the mother's status is unknown.
If the mother tests negative, Surgeon General David Satcher said, federal health agencies now counsel giving the much-criticized shot later in infancy -- between two and six months of age -- "when the infant is considerably larger" and the baby's immune system is further developed.
Satcher said premature babies should not receive the vaccine until reaching full-term gestational age (9 months, 2 weeks, and a weight of at least 5.5 pounds).
Federal health officials did not acknowledge that recent criticism from Congress, parents and doctors played any role in the policy change.
Instead, recommendations for the shot were promulgated last week almost as a footnote in a larger announcement on halting the use of thimerosal, a type of mercury added in traces to many vaccines as a preservative and bacteria killer.
Mercury is a highly toxic metallic element that can build up in the body if ingested frequently enough.

Vaccines Largest Cause of Insulin-dependent Diabetes in Young Children

At a recent meeting of the American College for Advancement in Medicine, Dr. Bart Classen, an immunologist at Classen Immunotherapies, presented data providing proof that vaccines cause insulin-dependent diabetes. The report of this meeting appeared in the May 14 PRNewswire. Dr. Classen's presentation included data from a randomized clinical trial in Finland that showed that groups vaccinated with the hemophilus vaccine had a 17% increased risk of diabetes in a 10 year follow up study. Even worse, further analysis of people receiving the newer, more potent, hemophilus vaccine indicated that these vaccines increased the risk of diabetes by about 25%.

Dr. Classen also indicated that from the data he found, common vaccines were not only causing insulin-dependent diabetes but a wide range of chronic diseases including autism, allergies, asthma, type II diabetes and many different autoimmune diseases. Even more surprising was a poll that was taken of physicians at the meeting. The attendees were polled to see if they agreed with Dr. Classen and his findings and were asked to raise their hand if they believed that vaccines can cause chronic diseases. The vast majority of the attendees agreed. Dr. Classen's response to the poll was, "The poll clearly shows that our findings and the findings of others, which indicate vaccines cause chronic disease, is well accepted in the medical community.''

Did You Know the Autism Rate is Rising?

The apparent rise in the proportion of children in the United States with autism appears to be real. Ranging from one in 500 to one in 1,000 cases in the United States each year, autism prevalence is increasing with successively younger children, particularly those born between 1987 and 1992. Experts are worried about this trend as it places a tremendous strain on the nation's special education resources and will be an absolutely stunning financial burden to already strapped school systems. In order to access the prevalence trends of this disability, researchers used data reported to the U.S. Department of Education's Office in Special Education Programs, which involved children aged 6-17 between 1992 and 2001. Results for autism were compared with trends of other disabilities including traumatic brain injury, mental retardation and speech/language impairment. What did the analysis show? The number of children receiving a special education classification of autism has increased drastically over the past decade. Determining the Culprit Behind Autism The autism trend has raised many questions regarding its origin. Though it is unknown what exactly causes autism, some research has pointed to genetics, while scientists have explored the possibility of factors such as:

  • Metabolic
  • Infectious
  • Immunologic
  • Neurological
  • Environmental

The National Autism Association believes there is a sufficient amount of evidence supporting such a link between autism and vaccines. Dr. Mercola's Comment: The link between autism and vaccines is certainly not new. Many have known this for longer than 10 years, and I ran an article on this over six years ago. Last year I ran an article that showed an analysis that children who received vaccines with thimerosal were 27 times more likely to have autism. Folks, if you look at percentages that is a 2,700-percent increase in autism in those children who received poisonous mercury in their vaccines. If you could only focus on one vaccine though, I would encourage you to look at hepatitis B. I believe it is criminal that it is given to newborn infants whose tiny central nervous systems are particularly susceptible to toxic insults. I believe future generations will view this practice as reprehensible ignorance that caused epidemic levels of brain injury in our young and helpless children. Once you understand that the primary reason of giving newborns hepatitis B immunization is to protect against a disease that is caught through IV drug use, promiscuous sexual activity or blood transfusions the insanity becomes more obvious. There are two justifications that are given to defend this practice. One is that the mom might have hepatitis B. Well if she did that would be easy enough to screen for in the mom and the child could be given hepatitis B immune globulin (passive antibodies) to this virus, which would be far more effective. The second reason given is that the infants will be protected when they grow up. However, what the "experts" don't tell you is that the antibody protection from this vaccine disappears in half of kids in seven years. Additionally, there are only about 5,000 people a year who develop the most serious consequence of hepatitis B infection, liver cancer. So we are immunizing tens of millions of infants and causing brain injury that has caused an epidemic of autism to protect liver cancer in 5,000 adults. And many of these adults have serious social problems like IV drug abuse, alcoholism and poor nutrition that seriously increases their risk for this disease. Folks, do you see something wrong with this picture? If you want to read more of my rants about hepatitis B vaccine you can go read my warning on how this vaccine can devastate your child's health. Enlighten Yourself--Learn the Dangers of Vaccines Please don't believe me at face value. Do the independent research yourself. Carefully analyze the data and I suspect you will reach the same conclusion that I, and many other health care professionals, have. If you want to speed up your research let me suggest Dr. Sherri Tenpenny as a resource. Her amazing video will cut months of hard work from your analysis. She created a two-hour DVD video, Vaccines: What CDC Documents and Science Reveal, that tells the truth behind the vaccines issues. The video is the culmination of Dr. Tenpenny's three-year investigation into the true story behind vaccines and is presented in a very easy to understand lecture format. The facts on several crucial areas are covered, including: · How vaccines can cause illnesses including autoimmune diseases, allergies, ear infections and more · The very real link between vaccines and developmental learning and behavioral disorders in children · How vaccines have never been proven safe · The ingredients and contaminants in vaccines and why they're detrimental to your health · How vaccine studies are seriously flawed Note: If you are a parent, a medical practitioner, or are otherwise interested in how to exercise your freedom of choice to bypass vaccines, you should also consider Dr. Tenpenny's insightful cassette tape, The Dangers of Vaccines, and How You Can Legally Avoid Them, which is a 90-minute teleconference interview I conducted with her.

Major Problems With the Vaccine Procedure By Bronwyn Hancock
Vaccination Information Service We have all been repeatedly told that vaccination is both safe and protective of children against dangerous diseases. Many parents upon learning of adverse effects realize that their trust has been betrayed--that vaccines are not safe at all. However, it is common for them to continue to trust that vaccines are effective and that the diseases they purportedly prevent are dangerous. This creates a terrible dilemma for these parents, who end up feeling that either way they are taking a risk. However, with more investigation increasing numbers of parents are discovering that nature is not so cruel as to force such a difficult dilemma on them. The full reality is that not only do childhood illnesses (provided they are properly managed) have a priming and maturing role in immune system development rather than being dangerous to unvaccinated children[1], but also vaccines have never prevented any diseases. Other factors have clearly been responsible for the declines that have occurred, and the very toxic and invasive nature of vaccines that causes the observed adverse effects also makes them counterproductive for their very purpose of protecting against diseases. Rather than discussing the statistical evidence, false assumptions and misinterpretations relating to the myth of vaccination effectiveness, which are covered by various books and Web sites, what is far less widely known, and what I will cover here, is the actual effect that vaccines have on the immune system, which causes them to be counterproductive. I must give credit for my awareness of this to Dr. Viera Scheibner, who is arguably unsurpassed in her width of knowledge and depth of understanding of the vaccination issue, having studied over 100,000 pages of medical research on the subject. Having worked closely with her over a number of years, I have read much of the most revealing research that she has uncovered. There are two main causes of the problem: the toxic nature of the ingredients in vaccines and the invasive form of delivery.

Ingredients, the Injection Process and the Result At the bottom of this article is a brochure that summarizes the subject and starts with a list of the ingredients in vaccines. In respect to these, first there are those that are poisonous by their very nature regardless of how they are administered such as formaldehyde, mercury, aluminum compounds, phenol, acetone and antifreeze. It is well established that such poisons, even on their own, are immune system SENSITIZERS. This means they make the immune system more sensitive, or less able to cope appropriately with foreign substances that it encounters. Then there are other ingredients such as animal organ tissue and blood that our bodies would not have a problem with IF they entered the body orally because our digestive system breaks down foreign proteins, unusable in that form, into their constituent amino acids, which are then absorbable and useable by the body. However, our immune systems have not been designed to deal with foreign proteins being injected. In fact the injection of any foreign substance is well known to suppress the immune system[2], and vaccination is no exception. Effects The immune system becomes derailed and confused, and often even when these proteins subsequently are encountered by a natural portal of entry (e.g. through the digestive system or lungs), the immune system reacts. This of course is what is known as an allergic response. One manifestation of this, asthma, kills over 10,000 people annually in the United States. Other effects include more serious “atypical” forms of the targeted diseases[3] and a reversed ratio of T4 and T8 cells[4] that characterizes a host of modern immunodeficiencies including autoimmune diseases, cancer (now in the young), chronic fatigue syndrome and AIDS. All of these conditions were unknown before the vaccination era. (See accompanying brochure for a more complete list of vaccination effects.) Bypassing Vital Defenses Another problem with the injection process in respect to any viruses and bacteria that are being administered is that very important outer levels of defense are bypassed, giving them deep access into the body to cause damage. Hence, for example, the now well known finding of the vaccine strain of the measles virus in the gut of a significant proportion of autistic children. It has also been found that animal, bacterial and viral DNA, when injected, can be incorporated into the recipient’s DNA[5]. No wonder vaccination has been linked to cancer, particularly considering vaccine ingredients even include animal cancer cells (used for the culturing of viruses because they continue to multiply). Some Babies Just Cannot Cope Some babies lose the battle against the invasive toxic assault of vaccination in hours, days or weeks. If the parents are “lucky” it is diagnosed as cot death, or if an organ fails it is classified simply as failure of that organ (e.g. kidney failure). However, if injuries such as subdural hematomas or retinal hemorrhages are found, the parents (or other care-giver) find themselves falsely accused of murder in the form of “shaken baby” syndrome. Vaccine-Induced Antibodies Do NOT Indicate Immunity What causes confusion to many medical doctors is that part of the sensitization reaction to vaccination is the production of antibodies. This is falsely equated with the opposite, intended effect, which is to bring immunity. The aluminum compounds are even included for this very purpose (as “adjuvants”) to artificially force the production of a significant number of virus-specific IgG antibodies, because the immune system does not naturally produce them (in significant levels) on demand by injections[6]. However, the IgG antibodies thus produced only show that there has been exposure to that virus. Their presence does not mean immunity. The secretory IgA antibody, which does NOT get produced by injections because injections bypass the outer level processes of the immune system, has been found to be a far better measure of immunity[7]. This is why contracting tetanus, the well known way being by a deep puncture wound, which is just like an injection, does not bring immunity. The result is even said to be "sensitization” to tetanus in the future. Immunity can develop, however, if the bacteria enter via the natural portals of entry, often without the person even being ill with it. When it comes in through the natural portals of entry it is also in its aerobic form, which does not produce the neurotoxins that cause the characteristic tetanus symptoms such as locked jaw and tetanic spasms. Variations in Effects Occur, but No One Benefits The fact that some children do not have noticeable adverse effects to vaccination does not mean that for them the procedure is beneficial, it is just that we have great variations in: 1) level, type and time of manifestation of susceptibility between individuals 2) levels of toxins between vaccine batches--there is a lack of control of toxicity levels The effects are also accumulative, so a child that reacts very little, if at all, after one dose could be badly affected, even killed, by a subsequent dose. Summary Vaccination does nothing clever. With all of its good intent it just ends up being an injection of a large variety of different kinds of poisons deep into the body. The effect is an increase, not decrease, in susceptibility to the very disease it is trying to prevent; a host of immune system problems and damage to any organ. Even its purpose is unwanted interference--an attempt to prevent diseases that have an important role in immune system development. Vaccine-Induced Antibodies Do NOT Indicate Immunity What causes confusion to many medical doctors is that part of the sensitization reaction to vaccination is the production of antibodies. This is falsely equated with the opposite, intended effect, which is to bring immunity. The aluminum compounds are even included for this very purpose (as “adjuvants”) to artificially force the production of a significant number of virus-specific IgG antibodies, because the immune system does not naturally produce them (in significant levels) on demand by injections[6].

Vaccination Information Service

We have all been repeatedly told that vaccination is both safe and protective of children against dangerous diseases.

Having worked closely with her over a number of years, I have read much of the most revealing research that she has uncovered.

There are two main causes of the problem: the toxic nature of the ingredients in vaccines and the invasive form of delivery.

Ingredients, the Injection Process and the Result

At the bottom of this article is a brochure that summarizes the subject and starts with a list of the ingredients in vaccines. In respect to these, first there are those that are poisonous by their very nature regardless of how they are administered such as formaldehyde, mercury, aluminum compounds, phenol, acetone and antifreeze.

All of these conditions were unknown before the vaccination era. (See accompanying brochure for a more complete list of vaccination effects.)

Bypassing Vital Defenses

Another problem with the injection process in respect to any viruses and bacteria that are being administered is that very important outer levels of defense are bypassed, giving them deep access into the body to cause damage. Hence, for example, the now well known finding of the vaccine strain of the measles virus in the gut of a significant proportion of autistic children.

It has also been found that animal, bacterial and viral DNA, when injected, can be incorporated into the recipient’s DNA[5]. No wonder vaccination has been linked to cancer, particularly considering vaccine ingredients even include animal cancer cells (used for the culturing of viruses because they continue to multiply).

Some Babies Just Cannot Cope

Some babies lose the battle against the invasive toxic assault of vaccination in hours, days or weeks. If the parents are “lucky” it is diagnosed as cot death, or if an organ fails it is classified simply as failure of that organ (e.g. kidney failure). However, if injuries such as subdural hematomas or retinal hemorrhages are found, the parents (or other care-giver) find themselves falsely accused of murder in the form of “shaken baby” syndrome.

Vaccine-Induced Antibodies Do NOT Indicate Immunity What causes confusion to many medical doctors is that part of the sensitization reaction to vaccination is the production of antibodies. This is falsely equated with the opposite, intended effect, which is to bring immunity. The aluminum compounds are even included for this very purpose (as “adjuvants”) to artificially force the production of a significant number of virus-specific IgG antibodies, because the immune system does not naturally produce them (in significant levels) on demand by injections[6]. However, the IgG antibodies thus produced only show that there has been exposure to that virus. Their presence does not mean immunity. The secretory IgA antibody, which does NOT get produced by injections because injections bypass the outer level processes of the immune system, has been found to be a far better measure of immunity[7]. This is why contracting tetanus, the well known way being by a deep puncture wound, which is just like an injection, does not bring immunity. The result is even said to be "sensitization” to tetanus in the future. Immunity can develop, however, if the bacteria enter via the natural portals of entry, often without the person even being ill with it. When it comes in through the natural portals of entry it is also in its aerobic form, which does not produce the neurotoxins that cause the characteristic tetanus symptoms such as locked jaw and tetanic spasms.

Variations in Effects Occur, but No One Benefits The fact that some children do not have noticeable adverse effects to vaccination does not mean that for them the procedure is beneficial, it is just that we have great variations in: 1) level, type and time of manifestation of susceptibility between individuals 2) levels of toxins between vaccine batches--there is a lack of control of toxicity levels The effects are also accumulative, so a child that reacts very little, if at all, after one dose could be badly affected, even killed, by a subsequent dose. Summary Vaccination does nothing clever. With all of its good intent it just ends up being an injection of a large variety of different kinds of poisons deep into the body. The effect is an increase, not decrease, in susceptibility to the very disease it is trying to prevent; a host of immune system problems and damage to any organ. Even its purpose is unwanted interference--an attempt to prevent diseases that have an important role in immune system development.
