Vaccines; Nice Shots Or Not =========================================================================== | I do not think that just this one article "Nice Shot" could change your | mind about vaccines but what do you think. On October 10, 2007 The New York Times published an article by Gary Taxali reviewing the book Nice Shot by Jessica Snyder Sachs. The review was not really a review but hashing support for Sachs' view that we should give our children flu shots. In his article, he berates parents for shunning flu shots for their children. He argues that we cannot become naturally immune to certain bacteria. He further argues that allowing particular sicknesses, such as flu and pneumonia, to run their course weakens children and makes them more prone to worse diseases later. He states, "health agencies have expanded their flu shot recommendations to include all children ages 6 months to 5 years in addition to adults over age 50, and anyone, child or adult, with a chronic condition like severe allergies, asthma or diabetes." The rest of the article lays the ground to support it unequivocally. To even consider that his arguments should be accepted as basis to get our children, or anyone injected with flu vaccines is nonsense. Viruses are not alive and always changing. Viruses that exist in one person are not the same in another, and viruses change completely within a person about 72 hours. Therefore, the idea that flu vaccines are efficacious is absurd. It takes about 18 months to manufacture, market, promote and distribute one type of flu vaccine. Therefore, the vaccine is obsolete 18 months before there are plans to create a flu vaccine. If flu vaccines had any efficacy, they would have to be available within days of that particular virus being produced within our bodies. In either case, there is no scientific proof that flu vaccines create immunity from anything. There is evidence though that vaccines are very harmful. Many people, especially children have severe reactions to vaccines, such as colds, flu, complete paralysis, hepatitis, pneumonia and death. Yet, Sachs and Taxali argue that to let pneumonia run its course is ignorant, idiotic, dangerous and irresponsible. Neither mentions all of the poisonous substances in all vaccines, such as liquid methyl mercury, aluminum, ether, formaldehyde and detergents. The quantity may vary but some or all of those substances are in all vaccines, including flu vaccines. What educated parent with knowledge about those toxins is going to believe the rhetoric from the industries that profit from vaccines, that flu shots are ultimately good for anyone, especially children? How many of you would watch me dump a bunch of rotten eggs with disease into a blender with the neurotoxin methyl mercury, aluminum, formaldehyde, ether and detergents, blend them and offer it to your children, elderly parents and you as a preventative for flu? Who would drink it and allow their loved ones to drink it? Who thinks that we have better chances with microbes, with which humans have interacted for at least 4 million years, rather than a blatant soup of poisons? Natural immunity should always be our choice. However, Maryland State government has begun to force vaccines on everyone's children. If parents do not get their children vaccinated, the parents will suffer jail time. I suggest that if you live in Maryland and you have children, move to another state quickly.
