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!
