Every parent should read the American Journal of Epidemiology, study: Rotavirus Vaccine and Intussusception, How Much Risk Will Parents in the United States Accept to Obtain Vaccine Benefits? They found that the smarter the group they are seeking to vaccinate the more resistant they are because more and more parents have done their homework and they are simply unwilling to trust the government on this issue. Likewise, the higher the education and income bracket of the parents, the lower the acceptable risk.
The benefits of many vaccines are nonexistent
Even if the risk for some vaccines is low, what many parents find – when they examine the research carefully – is that the benefit for many vaccines is virtually nonexistent, which then means there’s no reason to accept ANY risk.
There are so many unanswered questions when it comes to vaccines
Does it really boil down to a roll of the dice as to whether vaccines will ultimately protect you or harm you? Earlier this year more than 1,000 people came down with the mumps, and almost all of them had been vaccinated against this disease – 77 percent of the 1,000+ who were sickened with mumps were vaccinated. Parents need to ask – how effective is the vaccine schedule? Especially considering the MMR vaccine (Measles, Mumps, Rubella) which apparently does not always work as advertised.
Did you know that in 2006, mumps infected more than 6,500 people in the United States
These cases occurred primarily among college students who had received two doses of MMR vaccine. At that time, just about the only people who were truly immune to mumps were older Americans who had recovered from mumps as children, and therefore had received natural, lifelong immunity.
There are basic differences between naturally acquired immunity and temporary vaccine-induced antibody production. Barbara Loe Fisher, National Vaccine Information Center, explains: “Vaccines are supposed to fool your body’s immune system into producing antibodies to resist viral and bacterial infection in the same way that actually having the disease usually produces immunity to future infection.
But vaccines atypically introduce into the human body lab altered live viruses and killed bacteria along with chemicals, metals, drugs and other additives such as formaldehyde, aluminum, mercury, monosodium glutamate, sodium phosphate, phenoxyethanol, gelatin, sulfites, yeast protein, antibiotics as well as unknown amounts of RNA and DNA from animal and human cell tissue cultures.
Whereas natural recovery from many infectious diseases stimulates lifetime immunity, vaccines only provide temporary protection and most vaccines require “booster” doses to extend vaccine-induced artificial immunity.
The fact that manmade vaccines cannot replicate the body’s natural experience with the disease is one of the key points of contention between those who insist that mankind cannot live without mass use of multiple vaccines and those who believe that mankind’s biological integrity will be severely compromised by their continued use.”
Dr. Mercola reminds us that many of us have likely had our turn with the mumps
The virus ran its course while you stayed at home in bed, and you’ve been rewarded with lifelong immunity. In most cases mumps, like many of the childhood diseases we’re now vaccinating our children against, is not a serious disease.
In rare cases, serious complications can develop, but you must weigh this risk against that of the vaccine, which, for one, definitely contains substances with known toxic properties. The other aspect to the equation is that even if you get the vaccine, you may still get the mumps, which means you’ve accepted the risk of the vaccine itself with no benefit whatsoever.
Stay informed. Eat well. Live well.
