What is vaccination?
Vaccination is also referred to as inoculation, which, according to McGraw-Hill Science & Technology Encyclopedia, is defined as:
“The process of introducing a microorganism or suspension of microorganism into a culture medium. The medium may be (1) a solution of nutrients required by the organism or a solution of nutrients plus agar; (2) a cell suspension (tissue culture); (3) embryonated egg culture; or (4) animals, for example, rat, mouse, guinea pig, hamster, monkey, birds, or human being. When animals are used, the purpose usually is the activation of the immunological defenses against the organism. This is a form of vaccination, and quite often the two terms are used interchangeably. Both constitute a means of producing an artificial but active immunity against specific organisms, although the length of time given by such protection may vary widely with different organisms.”
There is also another way to look at and define this controversial issue offered by Craig Stellpflug, in his article for NaturalNews.com, Myth Busted: Vaccinations are not Immunizations. He explains that “In vaccines, an antigen is injected into the body to produce a reaction and the immune system responds in the form of antibodies, but antibody presence does not confer immunity.” Stellpflug also states that, “Vaccines should never be called immunizations because that is a misnomer. Immunity and vaccinations are two different subjects altogether.”
Have you ever met an unvaccinated child or adult?
I know several quite well. I am always amazed at how bright they are, how healthy they are, and how few chronic diseases they seem to suffer from. It seems to go with the territory that their moms feed them a great, usually organic diet, encourage them to practice some sport or dance type activity, raise them with companion animals, and overall lead a healthy lifestyle, both as individuals and as a family. The parents of these kids are educated and have conducted some pretty thorough research, looking closely at the risks vs. benefits. I am not talking about children who are malnourished or impoverished, as that would be an entirely different discussion. I’m talking about kids from middle class homes and families, whom I know personally. You might also have encountered them, perhaps in your own neighborhood and circle of friends, if their parents dared to tell you their kids’ secret. Maybe they were homeschooled and seemed to think a bit outside the box. Maybe the parents are vegan and did not wish to have animal material injected into their children. Maybe they just object to having their kids jabbed with a syringe loaded with suspicious substances or cultured in animal products, see http://vactruth.com/2012/05/25/vaccine-dog-cells-allergy/?utm_source=The+Vaccine+Truth+Newsletter&utm_campaign=74dc3e8387-05_25_2012_dogs&utm_medium=email that have never been thoroughly tested or proven to be safe or effective!
My firsthand evidence with these unvaccinated babies, young children and young adults, some of whom now have babies of their own, is clearly anecdotal. The minute I open the lid to this Pandora’s box, everything but the kitchen sink is thrown at me: how wonderful vaccines are, how many lives they save, and how insane it is not to do it, as well as questioning my credentials in having the audacity to suggest questioning this now nearly sacred procedure! The incredible health and high IQs of these kids has got to be just a coincidence, right? Not! In response to these inevitable skeptics, I offer: just how insane is it to push chemically induced ‘herd’ medicine and a one-size-fits-all medical model at everyone on the planet? It’s a good idea to change the subject at that point, as things always get heated and it’s a win/lose scenario, one way or another!
I found an interesting timeline that helps us put the subject of vaccination into its proper historical perspective. When we look at it in this way, it seems like such a wonderful scientific advancement. It seems to make sense in many ways.
We learn at History of Vaccines that the story of vaccines did not begin with the first vaccine, which always seems to be credited to Edward Jenner. (It was indeed Jenner who observed a group of milkmaids resistant to ‘cow pox,’ and it was Jenner whose use of cowpox pustules seemed to provide protection against smallpox.) Although we hear this story quite often, the saga ostensibly began with a long history of infectious disease in humans, and in particular, with earlier uses of smallpox material to provide immunity to that disease.
Evidence is reported on the timeline that the Chinese employed smallpox inoculation (or variolation, as such use of smallpox material was called) as early as 1,000 CE. It was practiced in Africa and Turkey as well, before spreading to Europe and the Americas.
Edward Jenner’s innovations began with his successful 1796 use of cowpox material to create immunity to smallpox, which quickly made the practice widespread. His method underwent medical and technological changes over the next 200 years, and we have heard again and again how this eventually resulted in the eradication of smallpox (there is a dark side to Jenner’s work because his own son died of tuberculosis, perhaps because vaccination impaired his immune system, but let’s leave that out of our discussion. I may tackle that another time).
Yes, I too know the propaganda rather well after 20 years’ research on this subject matter—and yes, my own parents (and their parents) bought into it, and even I bought into it when I was a young mother: ‘hook, line, and sinker’ as we all got the jab! I find it interesting that ‘the powers that be’ stopped giving the small pox vaccine because its side effects became pretty horrific and deadly.
In reviewing the timeline above, one might wish to have been a fly on the wall and listened in on the debates amongst religious scholars vs. the science guys of the day. It might have sounded something like this: “If man was created in God’s image and is therefore perfect, then why isn’t he/she perfect without this jab?” That’s actually a good question. You’d think a baby’s first food, their mother’s colostrum, would/should be all that is needed: building a strong immune system, being allowed to catch childhood diseases, building immunity to them naturally, and being nourished with good food, clean water and proper hygiene. However, today, we are told a different tale, and vaccination due to fear of getting sick has become so commonplace that there is actually a new kind of fear model circulating that involves the so-called threat of the unvaccinated child or adult!
Is there any validity to these fears about being unvaccinated?
In a recent article by Ethan Huff for Alignlife.com, he reports a recent survey released by vaccineinjury.info, which debunks the notion that unvaccinated children are not as well-off as those individuals who have been vaccinated. It seems that the unvaccinated kids are less likely to develop allergies, autoimmune disorders and neurological problems, along with endocrine diseases and other illnesses that their vaccinated counterparts endure.
According to Huff, a homeopathic practitioner named Andreas Bachmair put together heath data on more than 8,000 unvaccinated children in 15 different countries, and then compared it to health data on more than 17,400 vaccinated children in a German study (KiGGS – The German Health Interview and Examination Survey for Children and Adolescents).
The ages of the children involved ranged from 0 to 17 years of age, but typically were 8 years of age or younger. Huff explains that both studies used the same criteria for collecting data on these children’s health. The article Attempt to Debunk Vaccines’ Link with Autism Backfires contains more information related to this.
Huff reports that “In every single health category evaluated as part of both studies, the overall health of unvaccinated children was leaps and bounds ahead of the vaccinated children. The allergy rate among vaccinated children, for instance, was more than double the allergy rate among unvaccinated children. And worse, vaccinated children were found to be nearly eight times more prone to developing asthma or chronic Bronchitis than were unvaccinated children.”
Huff includes in his excellent article another finding observed between the two groups, the category of autoimmune disorders. Apparently less than half of one percent of unvaccinated children were found to have developed an autoimmune disease, while roughly seven percent of vaccinated children developed one. Huff states, that according to the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), nearly 25 percent of Americans today suffer from at least one autoimmune disorder.
There were other health areas where the unvaccinated kids fared better than the vaccinated ones and those included neurodermatitis, herpes, otitis media (common ear infections), hay fever, hyperactivity, scoliosis, epilepsy and seizures, migraine headaches, and thyroid disease. Huff includes, “The only category where disease rates were roughly equal between the two groups was in the category of diabetes mellitus, a disease which affects only about 0.2% of children under the age of 20.”

I would like to close with the exploration of the thought I offered above, in that proposed dialogue between a clergyman and a scientist: is it not possible (and I’m only asking a hypothetical question) that we were created perfectly by a perfect creator and live in a perfect universe, as suggested in the book Hubble Reveals Creation by an Awe-Inspiring Power, by J. Paul Hutchins? What do chemical compounds, including toxic substances and heavy metals, actually do to us on a quantum/micro and on a macro level? If there is a God Particle within each of us, which is suggested by the exploration of and search for the Higgs boson particle, what do these unnatural chemical substances do to it?
Many of you know that my passion has been helping people and their companion animals, both cats and dogs, transition to a holistic lifestyle. One of the great concerns has been with a specific vaccine-site sarcoma in cats, induced by certain feline vaccinations. At long last, I think we need to open our minds to the idea that vaccines are not the safe procedures the media and medical establishment wishes us to believe. They come with risks, as this article discusses.
This article further shares, “One demographic in U.S. society that does not embrace vaccinations, the Amish, have remarkable statistics that we need to consider further, e.g., the autism rate is one in 15,000! Plus, their children, who usually work the farms in some way virtually have no allergies.” It goes on to offer the following information from Dr. Paul G. King, PhD, that needs to be acknowledged and applauded: in non-mercury exposed Amish children (those who were not vaccinated or did not live near a coal-fired power plant), the number with autism was zero. Similarly, in The Home First, Dr. Eisenstein’s practice in Chicago, IL, in children who are all breastfed and not vaccinated, there were reportedly NO cases of autism and only 1 child with asthma in a population of over 30,000 children. But all of these are only considered “anecdotal” reports, which the CDC dismissed instead of even trying to confirm their validity (for obvious reasons).
For updates on issues surrounding vaccination controversies like these which I have shared, I highly recommend the vactruth.com site, which offers some alternative views which you won’t see covered in mainstream media. I found the posting regarding potential liver damage also to be of special interest.
Have we truly opened Pandora’s box when we inject these foreign substances directly into the bodies of living things? Vaccines are just the tip of the iceberg of the epigenetic consequences we humans have created for our future generations!
