Vaccination Awareness

Flu The topic of vaccinations is always emotional for both sides of the camp. People who have not done their research are quick to say that it is ignorant to avoid vaccinations.

However, this is quite the oxymoron because mothers with college educations and higher incomes are those who are LESS likely to vaccinate their children. -

The Facts About Immunization

by Dr. Mercola

The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, a division of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has released the 2007-2008 recommended immunization schedules for adults in the US.

The schedule includes 11 different types of vaccines for adults, including:

  • Tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis (Td/Tdap)
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Measles, mumps, rubella (MMR)
  • Influenza
  • Herpes zoster (shingles)

Key changes in this year's recommendations include:

  • Varicella (chickenpox) vaccination is recommended for all adults that have no apparent immunity to the virus
  • Zoster (shingles) vaccination is advised for all adults 60 years of age and older, regardless of whether they have had a prior shingles episode
  • HPV vaccine is recommended for women over the age of 26, who have not already completed the three-dose series
  • Did you know they're even working on a vaccine for dental caries (cavities)?

I about fell off my chair when I read that one. But it's true. The CDC actually defines dental caries as an infectious, communicable disease, and a vaccine may be here sooner than you think.

This is beyond ridiculous when you consider that there are many cultures in the world that simply have virtually NO tooth decay and I can strongly assure you that it has absolutely nothing related to any vaccine. It is because they are not eating processed foods and sugars and are mostly consuming foods appropriate for their nutritional type.

I firmly believe, as Dr. Weston Price confirmed in his pioneering research a century ago, that if you eat the proper foods you can avoid dental decay virtually your entire life.

Unfortunately that simply wasn't true for me and the majority of my teeth were LOADED with silver mercury amalgam fillings by the time I graduated high school. It wasn't until the mid 90s that I realized that it was best to have the mercury removed BUT unfortunately I saw a conventional dentist that was clueless about the precautions required to remove these fillings and as a result, I suffered some kidney impairment that I still struggle with today.

So if you have silver fillings removed make sure that a good “biological” dentist does the replacements for you. My current favorite replacement material is a metal free composite. I actually have two bridges constructed from this and a mouth full of composite crowns.

Why do People Still Believe in the Flu Shot?

But getting back to the vaccines, Big Pharma may appear idiotic, but they are no fools. They know people want guaranteed safety. “Here, take this shot and nothing bad will happen to you,” they say. And a lot of people believe them, even when evidence of the opposite comes out. They just want the magic pill to be true.

Some hard-hitting evidence released just a couple of months ago should make anyone think twice about the flu shot: flu vaccines have NEVER been proven to prevent flu-related deaths in people over age 65, which is one of the primary groups for which they're recommended.

You may also be shocked to learn that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) grossly distorts the facts about flu deaths. If you go to the CDC's main flu page, you'll see their statistic that about 36,000 people die from the flu in the United States each year.

But if you search a little harder, you can find the actual number of people who died from the flu in 2005 (this is the most recent data that's available). Want to take a guess at what it is?

In 2005, 1,806 people died from influenza, not 36,000. And in 2004, there were just 1,100 flu deaths.

The statistics the CDC gives are skewed partly because they classify those dying from pneumonia as dying from the flu, which is not at all true or accurate. For instance, their 2005 statistics lump influenza and pneumonia deaths together, at 62,804 deaths.

But broken down, there were 60,998 deaths from pneumonia and just 1,806 from the flu.

This will not stop the powers-that-be from touting their yearly fall warnings about this year's upcoming flu season, and all the flu deaths that will follow. The media (which is largely controlled by corporations, many of which are making or selling the flu shots or the junk food that will actually make you more vulnerable to the flu) would have you believe that getting the flu shot is all you need to do to stay healthy all winter.

How to Prevent the Flu Naturally

For most people the flu shot does not make you healthy; it does just the opposite, as it weakens your immune system. It appears that some of you in the medical field are beginning to catch on to this, with less than 40 percent of health care workers getting flu shots in 2006.

The truth is, if you follow a healthy lifestyle, you will not have to worry about getting the flu.

Take it from me -- I've never received a flu shot, and I haven't missed a day of work due to illness in over 20 years. The key steps that I follow to stay flu-free, which I suggest you follow too, include:

  • Get plenty of sunshine or vitamin D
  • Eat right for your nutritional type, including avoiding sugar
  • Exercise
  • Get adequate sleep
  • Address emotional stress
  • Wash your hands regularly
  • Take the Time to Make Informed Decisions

Whether or not you will subject yourself to the flu shot, or any of the other recommended vaccinations, is an important decision. Unless you've already studied it carefully, I would implore you to spend some time analyzing both sides of the argument before you make up your mind. Rushing blindly ahead could have dire consequences, especially if you've never considered the potential for side effects. You can use the links on my Favorites Page to start your journey. 

If you do the research and decide that a vaccination is NOT for you, you do have the legal right to refuse it.

We are, I am sorry to tell you, facing a uniquely dangerous moment in our history. An industry with more money than sense and a government with more greed than patriotism are conspiring to take away your right to control your body, keep it safe and, if harmed, seek recompense from the corporation which harmed you.

The Threat's Name? Senate Bill 1873

Senator Richard Burr,, of North Carolina has introduced a bill which, if passed, means the end of health freedom, possibly the end of your health and most certainly the end of your right to a trial by a jury of your peers in the all-too-likely event that you or your child have been harmed by a vaccine. The "Biodefense and Pandemic Vaccine and Drug Development Act of 2005" also takes away your right to know what you have been injected with (no disclosure, no Freedom of Information Act suits, none!) and your right to be compensated if that vaccination harms you or a loved one.

I am writing to you to ask you to take all three types of action listed below:

1. Write to your Congressmen/women to let them know that both the Senate (S1873) and House (HR3970) versions of the bill must be defeated,

2. Call Congress. The Congressional Switchboard is 1-202-225-3121.
The operators will connect you with your congressional delegation when you tell them your zip code.

3. Call the White House. Their number is 1-202-456-1414.

Tell the people you speak to that you are adamantly opposed to S1873 and HR3970 since vaccines are dangerous and compulsory vaccination violates your personal rights to self determination. Further, you flatly reject the creation of a secret agency which would operate without public oversight to created and compel the use of vaccines whose composition, side effects and hazards are not only unknown, but would be kept permanently hidden from the public.

Let them know that you will not tolerate the loss of compensation for harm and the loss of a trial by a jury of your peers to determine the nature and extent of any such harm to you or your loved ones and that a vote for these bills -- or others like them -- is completely unacceptable if the member of Congress wants to stand for re-election.

Make no mistake about it: Bird flu vaccines do not exist and cannot exist for some 6-18 months. Whatever you are vaccinated with will be experimental and therefore dangerous. With no liability to deter them, the vaccine makers can try anything they want or use any shoddy techniques they like and you cannot claim any harm has been done to you for the purposes of compensation. Not only that, the contents of these forced vaccinations for who-knows-what are secret!
So whether the vaccines contain

Stealth viruses (which many now do)
Squalene (a major threat to life and health as many a Gulf War
Veteran knows to his/her endless distress)
Aluminum or other known toxins
Live viruses which should have been killed or
Other contaminants,

not only will you never know, you can be forced to submit to vaccination and accept whatever comes next.
The issue here is two fold: your health and your health freedom.

Would it shock you to know that serious scientists question the very premise of public health through vaccination? That the sacred cow of "herd immunity" (diseases go away because all of us have been vaccinated) is not very good science and, because of the dangers of vaccines, terrible medicine?

Vaccination is neither effective nor safe although we have been told that both are true for so long that their effectiveness and safety seems self-evident. The truth, however, is far more disquieting. And for untested vaccines, the story is worse. Much worse. Here are some sites to which you can go to get in-depth information about this troubling question:

Vaccination Information and Choice Network
Vaccine Dangers
Vaccination Dangers
Deep Down Wellness
The Vaccine Page
National Vaccine Information Center
Even if you believe in vaccines for you and yours, the idea of a compulsory vaccine program administered by a secret agency with zero accountability to you and the same legal liability for the companies who make potentially lethal injections (zero once again) is a major threat to your liberty and mine. I urge you to take action and ask your circle of influence to do the same.

Yours in health and freedom,

Rima E. Laibow, MD

Medical Director

PS: I testified before the FDA today on the overuse of psychoactive medications in children and adolescents. It was fascinating. I'll tell you about it in my next email to you. In the meantime, please support our work defending health and health freedom for all of us!

PPS: Oh, yes, please give to the Natural Soltutions Foundation and help us keep on keeping our freedoms alive!
