Three Most Important Questions About Vaccines and Their Answers
Start Your Journey Into the Controversial World of Vaccination Here
Nearly 10 years ago I was pregnant with my first child. I was a supplement manager at a local health food store and finishing up my Naturopathy degree. My co-workers began to bombard me with questions whether I was going to vaccinate my baby. I was simply trying to get past the morning sickness and extreme fatigue. Vaccinations for my baby were the last thing on my mind.
Honestly, up until that point, I had not given much thought to vaccines in general. Vaccination was not the controversial subject then that it is today. Terms like anti-vaxxers and pro-vaxxers didn’t even exist yet!
Mothers who shopped in the health food store told me stories about their child’s vaccine injuries. But I had never personally looked into the negative effects of vaccination. Being a naturalist at heart, I knew that I would likely find the same side effects and dangers with vaccines that are so prevalent with pharmaceutical drugs.
As I was going over my baby girl’s birth plan provided by my doctor, I noticed that it included a Hepatitis B shot. Why would they give my newborn a shot for Hepatitis B? I realized at that point I couldn’t dodge the subject any longer. Thus began my journey into the controversial world of vaccination.
I began by searching out the answers to these 3 questions:
- Are vaccines medicine or poison?
- Do they prevent us from becoming sick or make us sick ?
- Are all vaccines necessary?
In this article, I will explain what I found in searching for answers. I believe knowledge is power and we should never rely on an organization or government to tell us what is best. You have the right to choose whether or not you or your child should receive particular vaccines. This is a fundamental health freedom issue that medical authorities using the force of government are trying to deny people all across the United States.
Even as I write this, bills are being proposed to take away this right to choose and force vaccination upon us all. In California, should the proposed bill SB 277 become law, every resident in the state from preschool to the age of 18 will be forced to be vaccinated with every mandated vaccine in order to reside in California and be eligible for any public or private school.
This would strip parents of their right to exempt their children from one, some, or all vaccines no matter their religious philosophical or ethical beliefs! This is an infringement on our freedoms and an outrageous step that could lead to thousands of vaccine induced injuries and even deaths.
Which brings me to the first question.
1. Are vaccines medicine or poison?
Vaccines are often deemed one of the greatest medical advances of all times. Millions of people now view vaccination as the savior from infectious deadly diseases. However, there is much more than meets the eye. Better nutrition, clean water and improved sanitation have profoundly contributed to the decline of many of the diseases that we now vaccinate against. Vaccines are definitely not the sole reason behind the decline of these diseases.
Few people stop and question what vaccines contain and their potential side-effects on the human body. How often does a parent ask to read the package insert for the vaccine their child is about to receive? Rarely, I would venture to say.
Sadly, we blindly trust the medical and pharmaceutical industry and we do not question their expertise or motives. Furthermore, the media strategically blacks out anything negative regarding vaccines.
It is time to ask more questions about what we are truly putting inside our children and our own bodies.
Furthermore, I believe medical professionals should be far more transparent with the ingredients and possible side effects before injecting a person with a cocktail of chemicals! Every year more than 25,000 vaccine reactions are reported to the US government. These reactions include severe injury and even death! It is also estimated that these reported reactions only account for 1-10% of the total actual reactions per year!
This means that literally millions of reactions to vaccinations have occurred over the last few years! As a result, the U.S. government has paid out more than $1.5 billion in its Vaccine Injury Compensation Program to families of children who have been injured or killed by vaccines.
With all the uncertainty surrounding the safety and efficacy of vaccines, it’s critical to protect your right to make independent health choices and exercise voluntary informed consent to vaccination.
That being said, lets take a look at some of the typical ingredients found in vaccines and the possible negative consequences on the human body.
