I am a believer in vaccinations. We have high standards in Australia. Maybe something wrong with the US vaccines?

Completely agree with Paul B. And the funny thing is my friend got the whooping cough vaccine ad ten just a few weeks latershe got whoping cough. I have no gotten the vaccine and I have not gotten whooping cough. Also when I was younger I had never gotten the flu butone year, I tink I was 10, there was a "epidemic" so my mom decide to have me get the shot. And guess what? I got the flu! I have notgotte another flu shot since then and have never gotten the flu again. Funny isn't it.

Understand the Real Pertussis Vaccine Numbers
The CDC, the medical community and the pharmaceutical companies are well aware that the immunity from the pertussis vaccine wanes in a few years. It does not provide lifelong immunity. Ref. Rosemary B., nurse 45 years experience

So, every few years families must subject their children to dangerous vaccinations in order to maybe avoid the disease. That is something the chart should explain? So, by the chart and above information, you need to subject your child to 15 shots total in less the 7 years, very dangerous and confusing science? Add that to all the other vaccinations they want to give children and we have turned them into little toxic pin cushions!

Why are vaccines so dangerous?
Immunizing children at two to six months of age is the largest cause of upper respiratory infections, allergies, and ear infections. (Dr. Daniel A. Landers in Immunization: An Informed Choice)

Dr. William Albrecht in the Organic Consumer Report, Dec. 4, 1962, warns us that vaccines are dangerous because they go directly into the bloodstream without censoring by the liver. "When you take in other substances like carbohydrates and proteins, they go into the intestines, and from there are passed through the liver, as the body's chemical censor, before they go into the blood and circulate throughout the body. Most vaccination serums are proteins, and are not censored by the liver. Consequently vaccinations can be a terrific shock to the syst

Five dangerous myths about vaccines

Sure you missed the point Rosemary, the infographic is totally weighted to the side of vaccination with no warning of its dangers and totally leaves out any mention of the immune system and ways to naturally support it, typical pharmiceutical drug industry pandering?

About meeting ethical doctors? I have met none at all so far, but I have met a few during my childhood and military time that I would happily introduce to water boarding. Since then I have avoided them almost completely except when required by the bureaucracy and it has paid off by saving my life more then once! But even the good doctor Mendelsohn (a hero of mine) said, "When I meet a doctor, I generally figure" so even he left the door open for the few like himself who know the score and the horrible reality of what passes for modern medicine. I know Ethical MD's are around because I have read some of their work tho many have passed on. Doctors, Lorraine Day, Abram Hoffer, Otto Warburg, Linus Pauling, Robert Cathcart, Andrew Saul, Frederick Klenner, William McCormick and Carolyn Dean are just a few I would like or would have liked to meet.

Anyway it has been a pleasure to talk to you Rosemary and if you want to do an expose of all those years of criminal activity you saw I'd be happy to help you out with a few pearls of horror from my collection.
