Wrong wrong wrong...I am not a doctor nor do I work in the medical field.
And I cannot "post my 60 hours of research". My research consisted of actually reading and analyzing dozens of scientific studies, analyzing critiques of those studies, studying thimerosal, and reading literature related to thimerosal. Have any of you done that? Or did you just hear a celebrity make an unsupported claim and you latched onto it?
The unbiased research is out there, I suggest you all spend some time reading and analyzing it rather than just reciting bogus claims you hear on TV or posting biased studies that lack any scientific credibility.
And who do you think funds the studies that say thimerosal causes autism? Let me save you trouble...it's the trial lawyers, who are trying to scam millions of dollars from pharma companies. There are greedy pigs on both sides.
Who is Taycare Pty Ltd? Do they have any credibility? Who funded their "research"?
You can't just post a link to a website and claim it as truth.
I'm afraid I didn't read McCarthy's article, did you check out the National Vaccine Information Center link I posted? You didn't mention it in your reply. It was founded by parents of children damaged by vaccinations.
I think there are quite a few people there who have invested a bit more than 60 hours of research. I have myself.
Would you like some quotes from someone OTHER than me? How much time do you have?
SUBTERFUGES AND SYRINGES
THE REAL WORLD OF VACCINATIONS
By Thomas Smith
February 1, 2003
Vaccination programs in the late 19th and early 20th century decimated the populations of many countries where government sponsored vaccination programs were introduced. Japan suffered 48,000 deaths from smallpox vaccination; England and Wales experienced 45,800 smallpox deaths in a population that was 97% vaccinated against smallpox. Australia and Germany combined with a total of 120,000 deaths from the very smallpox for which they had been vaccinated. European deaths amongst the vaccinated portion of the population totaled 3,000,000. Deaths from smallpox vaccination programs began to decline when a revolt against mandatory vaccination programs emerged from the chaos.
The revolt started in England. In the late 19th century, England was jailing an average of 2000 parents a year for refusal to vaccinate themselves and their children. Property seizure and prosecution were commonplace for refusal to participate in vaccination programs. The battle was a political one. The people started to win when a number of leading scientists went public with the truth about these vaccination programs.
Doctor Edgar Crookshank Professor of Biology at Kings College led the charge against mandatory vaccination programs with his book "The history and Pathology of Vaccination." Other leading scientists of his generation soon jumped on the bandwagon.
They demonstrated the scientific poverty of the entire vaccination concept. The revolt was successful. Within twenty years mandatory smallpox vaccination laws in England were repealed. In 1919 the death rate from smallpox promptly plummeted to a total of 28 deaths in a population of almost 40,000,000 people. Previously, with mandatory vaccinations they had averaged over 44,000 deaths from smallpox.
Meanwhile at the same time in the Philippine Islands, with a population of 10,000,000, a compulsory smallpox vaccination program administered by the US government produced over 47,000 deaths from smallpox. Over the entire ten year span of the vaccination program mandated by the US government in the Philippines 25,000,000 vaccinations were forced on a population of 10,000,000 people in a series of three per person. This produced 170,000 cases of smallpox of which 75,000 were fatal.
In the USA, an article in the July 1969 issue of Prevention Magazine described how 300 children had died from smallpox vaccination in the period from 1948 to 1969. In that very same reporting period there were no incidences of smallpox in the country.
In the USA in 1937, Dr. William Hay in his address to the Medical Freedom Society on the Lemke bill to abolish compulsory vaccination said: "I have thought many times of all of the insane things we have advocated in medicine, that is one of the most insane - to insist on the vaccination of children, or anybody else, for the prevention of smallpox when, as a matter of fact, we are never able to prove that vaccination saved one man from smallpox."
We are indebted to the work of Ian Sinclair for the excellent investigative work involved with the discovery of many of the relatively suppressed facts in the archives of history. He has published this information in his book "Vaccination: The Hidden Facts" The true story of the horror produced by compulsory vaccination somehow seems to be totally lacking in today's media reporting.
The theory of vaccinations.
In theory, vaccinations are designed to provoke a healthy immune system to manufacture antibodies to defend itself against some future exposure to disease. Vaccinations are specific. Each vaccination is purported to offer protection against a single specific disease or combination of diseases. There is no evidence whatsoever, that vaccination provides immunity beyond what the immune system without vaccination would normally provide.
There is much evidence that the "one size fits all" philosophy of the vaccines overwhelms the childhood immune system, those with weakened immune systems, those already coping with some other disease and those with allergies and sensitivities. Our immune systems are more unique than our fingerprints. To presume that all will have the desired response to vaccination is not just bad science, it borders on lunacy. Albeit, it is a very profitable lunacy for the drug companies.
In an article that appeared in the New York Journal of Medicine in July 1899 Charles Rauta, Professor of Hygiene and Material Medical in the University of Perguia says: "Vaccination is a monstrosity, a misbegotten offspring of error and ignorance; it should have no place in either hygiene or medicine....Believe not in vaccination, it is a world wide delusion, an unscientific practice, a fatal superstition with consequences measured today by tears and sorrow without end."
Professor Rauta was involved with the horrible smallpox epidemics in Italy at a time when Italy had achieved 98.5% compliance with the compulsory vaccination laws of the country. Professor Ari Zuckerman, a member of the World Health Organization advisory panel on virus' said: "Immunization against smallpox is more hazardous than the disease itself." The British medical Journal in January 1976 stated: "It is now accepted that the risks of routine smallpox vaccination outweigh those of natural infection in Britain." Doctor Robert Gallo a well known AIDS researcher said: "I have been saying for some years that the use of live vaccines such as that used from smallpox can activate a dormant infection such as that from AIDS (HIV)."
The active ingredient in each vaccine usually consists of an attenuated form of the infectious agent. When the infectious agent is simply weakened it will multiply in the host body and theoretically stimulate the production of antibodies by forming a pocket of rapidly growing infection without producing the disease. Historic practice was to grow the active agent in animal tissue and then use it in human tissue. This greatly reduced its virulence in human tissue.
For example when smallpox is grown in cow tissue it acclimates to the cow tissue. When the vaccine thus made is then transferred to human tissue it is found to be much less virulent to humans. When its virulence is thought to be sufficiently attenuated by successive cow hosts, it can be harvested and used for humans. The term "vaccine" actually comes from the root word "vaca" meaning cow. However, it is now applied to any vaccine used in any vaccination program and now often has little or no association with a cow.
However, this process is slow, marginally profitable and subject to whatever contamination exists in the animal tissue. So a variety of chemical ways to attenuate or kill these agents have been developed amongst which are: the use of carbolic acid, formaldehyde and heat treatment. Modern practice is to attenuate the active agent with chemistry and to grow it in a more controlled environment such as human fetal tissue. This speeds up the process and unfortunately places late term abortion on the firm commercial base needed to insure profitability for the industry. It also often leaves traces of carbolic acid, formaldehyde and fetal serum in the retail version of the vaccine.
The vaccination itself, in addition to the presumably attenuated infectious agent, contains adjuvenants, preservatives and a remnant of the media in which the vaccine was grown. In theory these contaminants are of little or no consequence. In practice they are of immense importance. For example one theory of the origin of the AIDS virus is that it was caused by contamination of the Hepatitis and Smallpox vaccines by growing the virus' in monkey serum media.
When the active agent is killed however, it does not rapidly reproduce or spread in our bodies. Our immune system then has a tendency to dispose of it quickly before a satisfactory development of antibodies throughout the body can occur. To prevent this, adjuvenants are added to the vaccine. These adjuvenants prevent the rapid assimilation of the active agent throughout the body. They cause the active agent to be localized in a small pocket of foreign protein thus providing a longer stimulus to the immune system. In theory this will result in the increased production of host antibodies. Thus the adjuvenant actually inhibits the natural tendency of our immune response to remove the foreign proteins from our system.
Since the active agents consist of proteins that have been killed or attenuated, it is necessary to include preservatives in the vaccine in order to provide a profitable shelf life for the product. Thimerosol is the preservative of choice in our vaccines. Thimerosol is an extraordinarily toxic Mercury compound. The amounts contained in a single vaccination contain up to 125 times the EPA permissible amount of toxic mercury. This mercury comes in a particularly toxic form that has been known since 1929 to severely damage the nervous system and to overwhelm the kidneys, liver and immune systems of children.
Thimerosol has now been determined to be a causal agent in the exploding epidemic of autism, ADD, ADHD devastating our children. Instead of simply removing the cause of these disorders, the State, in many cases, has mandated the use of Ritalin to counteract their symptoms.
Vaccinations are routinely given in childhood on the theory that they will confer immunity upon the child in the event of future exposure to infectious disease. Before the age of five many children are required to have over 30 vaccinations, many of them are multiple vaccinations. Some of these vaccination requirements are simply idiotic, for example a Hepatitis vaccine for an infant. Drug users and the promiscuous are at risk for Hepatitis, certainly not the large majority of infants.
Congressman Burton, in a recent congressional hearing on the use of Thimerosol in vaccines, has threatened criminal charges against the government agencies that are responsible for this horrific example of negligence. In the hearings it was revealed that the dangers of Thimerosol had been well understood since 1929. The only test ever conducted on the safety of this preservative was conducted in 1929. All patient participants in the test died and all investigations as to the safety of Thimerosol were abruptly discontinued.
This poison was finally removed from veterinary vaccines in the early 1990's. However, it was retained in human childhood vaccines until just recently when the huge numbers of vaccine damaged children could no longer be ignored.
Dr. Rimland MD when discussing this said: "When the link between unsafe mercury laden vaccine and autism, ADHA, asthma, allergies and diabetes becomes undeniable, mainstream medicine will be sporting a huge, self inflicted and well deserved black eye. Then will come the billion dollar awards, by enraged juries, to the children and their families. I can't wait".
It was the explosive growth of diabetes in America that directly caused this investigative reporter to become interested in the medical community. He contracted a serious case of Diabetes and quickly discovered that the medical community no longer cures it. This, despite the fact that a cure has been well understood since the late 1950's. After having to cure his own diabetes because his doctor would not cure it, he began to take a good hard look at some other widespread medical practices, particularly the highly profitable ones.
Note that the vaccination itself does not confer immunity. The immunity, in theory, results from the body successfully developing sufficient antibodies quickly enough to avoid acquiring the disease conferred by the vaccination.
The childhood immune system is heavily dependent upon the antibodies it receives from its mother's milk. To stimulate the immature immune system in an effort to produce antibodies that it can not yet produce is at best insanity; at worst it is a most culpable criminal activity.
Neither the kidneys nor the liver of an immature child can clear the relatively huge amounts of mercury poison given along with the active agent in these vaccines.
Perhaps the most pernicious of the incredible deceptions foisted upon a trusting public is the idea that vaccination programs ended the smallpox epidemics of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The only thing about these vaccination programs that ended the epidemics was the discontinuance of the programs. Sometimes many people were jailed and disenfranchised by an arrogant and unresponsive government before they changed the law.
What then did finally eradicate smallpox, which at one time really was a serious matter irrespective of vaccines? The great improvements in the health of people came through the eradication of diseases of filth and of filthy water. These advances consisted of major improvements in diet, hygiene, sanitary and health measures, underground sewage disposal, availability of uncontaminated water, as well as refrigeration and better preservation and distribution of food.
The Center for Disease control in their Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, July 20, 1999, 48:621-628 stated that improvements in water quality, sanitation and hygiene were the most important factors in the improvement of health and the control of infectious disease. Vaccines were not even considered to be among the factors.
Scientist's John and Sonia McKinlay show the same thing in their research. In fact they were able to quantize these findings. They stated that 97% of the increase in life span since the beginning of the twentieth century is due to the enormous improvements in sanitation of food, water and environment.
World Health statistics Annual 1973-1976 Volume II also attributes the vanishing of infectious disease to improved standards of cleanliness in our food, water and environment.
Do vaccinations really reduce either the incidence of or the severity of smallpox? From the many, many quotations from responsible knowledgeable, and honest, medical professionals that could be used to answer this question perhaps this one will give the most focused response. This quotation is by J.W. Hodge MD. In his book "The vaccination superstition" he states: "After a careful consideration of the history of vaccination gleaned from an impartial and comprehensive study of vital statistics, and pertinent data from every reliable source, and after an experience derived from having vaccinated 31,000 subjects, I am firmly convinced that vaccination cannot be shown to have any logical relation to the diminution of cases of smallpox. Vaccination does not protect, it actually renders its subjects more susceptible by depressing the vital power and diminishing the natural resistance, and millions of people have died of smallpox which they contracted after being vaccinated"
Perhaps the second most damaging deception provided by the modern medical propaganda ministry is that medical intervention, particularly vaccinations, played a decisive role in the reduction of infectious disease. The real truth is just exactly the opposite. Coincident with the rise in improved sanitation, massive compulsory vaccinations were discontinued and the disease epidemics disappeared very shortly thereafter.
We often hear the statement "there is no doubt that vaccines save lives". Actually there is a very great deal of doubt that vaccines are helpful at all and a great deal of evidence that they are quite harmful. That information just doesn't make it into the popular conciousness. It often doesn't even make it to the retail medical practitioner. The American propaganda ministry makes sure that popular belief is well controlled.
By taking credit for something that they did not do and by suppressing the history of what really happened, our medical elite set the stage for the calamities that now face us as a nation.
Criminal government legislation.
The Model States Health Powers Act contained provisions to mandate compulsory vaccination. Property confiscation, incarceration in "quarantine" centers and the use of law enforcement to ensure compliance was all carefully detailed. This is reminiscent of the "concentration" camps employed by another twentieth century despot when he was redesigning the government of his country. This was to be essentially a state activity. However, many States failed to adopt this totalitarian monstrosity as being alien to our American sense of fitness. Many States tabled it, one State, Alabama, rejected it outright.
To many, it appeared to provide too much power to a government that is showing disturbing signs of being willing to kill large numbers of people any way that they can just so long as they can accomplish their hidden goals.
When it became clear that mandatory vaccination was dead at the State level, it was included in the most totalitarian piece of legislation ever attempted here in America. It was included in The Homeland Security Bill which recently passed and will soon be signed into law by the president. Even many that voted on this bill do not realize what it contains.
Many congressmen did not even read the final draft upon which they voted. This bill provides for "mandatory vaccination of the entire population at the discretion of the director of Homeland Security." All options for refusal of the vaccine have been deleted. Personal, religious and medical exemptions have been deleted; informed consent is no longer required. Refusal will lead to arrest, property confiscation and imprisonment. Tom Ridges, director of Homeland Security is already on record as saying "I have a vaccination with the name of every American on it."
