Today, I’m going to pretend we can trust the data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website to make decisions on whether or not to vaccinate. I’m going to ignore the fact that a CDC scientist revealed that he and his colleagues committed scientific fraud by omitting and destroying statistically significant data showing risks associated with vaccines, because it has already been documented here, here, and here. I’m also going to pretend that every child who has a reaction to a vaccine has a parent who realizes and reports it. I know that’s impossible since most people haven’t perused the government website that discusses injuries occurring 42 days after vaccination. I’m also going to assume that all physicians have been trained to identify vaccine injuries, even though I have yet to meet a single doctor who was educated on this in medical school.
The CDC states on their website “Like any medication, vaccines can cause side effects. The most common side effects are mild. On the other hand, many vaccine-preventable disease symptoms can be serious, or even deadly. Even though many of these diseases are rare in this country, they still occur around the world and can be brought into the U.S. putting unvaccinated children at risk.”
This commentary is parroted by the majority of pediatricians, journalists, and those who fancy themselves “pro-science,” with no attention to the statistics and extensive fine print on the CDC’s website proving otherwise.
The table below was compiled using information from the CDC’s official website.
Recently, the following Facebook message caught my attention; and my heart went out to this distraught mother. Like so many other mothers who care for their vaccine injured children each and every day, she is emotionally and physically exhausted.
"Prayers needed. I can't do this anymore. Do you know how it feels to watch your child bang his face into the wall? I try to stop him only to find myself under attack. I just want my son back. Dear Lord please. No more suffering...I am at the end of my rope! Alone in this fight... me and God! I do not want him to be in an institution...or on zombie meds! Seeing no out...prayers!
I hate Autism!"
After reaching out to this mom, she sent me the link to the video of her recent meeting with the VAXXED team, As I watched, I was inspired by her relentless determination to continue doing everything possible to recover her son while taking care of the rest of her family and dealing with her own serious health challenges as well. I encourage you to listen to their story, and ask you to pray for Jeremy, his mom and their family. If you are able to and are so inclined, you can make a financial contribution to help with Jeremy's medical needs.
"Vaccines Revealed" begins January 10, 2017
"Vaccines Revealed" is a new docu-series that addresses the safety and efficacy of vaccines, and the impact they are having on our health and that of our children. The first episode of this free nine-part series airs Tuesday, January 10, 2017. Click here to watch a video clip and to register for this event which features interviews with more than twenty leading experts in vaccine research, medicine, immunology and more. (Additional video clips below.)
"... this is one of the biggest deciions you're ever going have to make; because if something does go wrong, then you're going to have to live with that for a long, long time."
"The reason we're on this earth today is maternal instinct. Far more powerful than any other force. Without material instinct we would not be here and you have to trust it. Public health has been on this earth for 150 years perhaps. Maternal instinc got us here from the beginning of time. You must trust your instinct.' - Dr. Andrew Wakefield
"So what do I believe moms have to do? They got to take their stand and understand that their baby's health, wellbeing and maybe even their life is at stake here and suddenly they become a different person to contend with." - Dr. Patrick Gentempo
"The flu shot is something that's being pushed on us in every direction...It has been shown in many studies all across the world that the flu shots simply don't work. The Cochrane Collaboration which is a big think tank organization has shown in all populations -- pediatric populations, middle age adults and senior citizens -- that flu shots are no more effective to prevent you from getting the flu than taking a shot of sterile water; and yet we're forcing this shots on everybody. There's something very sinister about that."
Dr. Sherri Tenpenny
"Today, a child who is getting all his vaccines in this country, will be getting 68 vaccines.If you were a baby growing up in the 1950s, you were getting about four vaccines.That means since 1950s, the number of vaccines for chldren has increased 17 times from the 1950s to the present. "
The VAXXED tour bus and team are taking a much needed and well deserved break before getting back on the road again in early 2017. During the first phase of the tour, the team recorded hundreds of interviews with vaccine injury victims, their families, healthcare professionals, scientists and others. In the videos below, two physicians explain why they no longer vaccinate their own family members or their patients. Listen, learn, share.
Dr. Patricia Ryan, MD, the mother of four and a family doctor in Nebraska, talks with Polly Tommey about the dangers of vaccines, including Gardasil.
"I graduated and like every other physician, did what was recommended, but, as they started adding on more vaccines, I started to question that. In addition, I questioned a lot of things about medicine and started to learn more about nutrition, about biochemistry, and molecular biology and why things happen and that led me into understanding more about the risks of vaccinations; and so I changed the way I practiced."
"...I just questioned all of medicine. When I went to medical school I wanted to know why people got sick in the first place and that question was never really answered; and then as I got into practice I noticed that people were sicker than they were even ten years ago...I always questionned things. I think people have the right to question their doctors about everything..."
"I do not want my grandchildren to get any vaccines...When people ask me, I try to educate them...I think it is one of the most important things that we need to talk about in our society today. It's very, very important."

Dr. Mark Zumhagen, MD of Illinois is a 30 year physician and former colleague of the late Dr. Mayer Eisenstein. He is the father of nine. Click here to learn more about Dr. Zumhagen.
"We don't know what normal is anymore. We're so use to seeing abnormal,
we can no longer define normal."
"...I was literally in practice on that cusp when we changed vaccine protocol; started vaccinating on one day of life; started introducing Chickenpox, Rotovirus, HIB, Hepatitis B into the schedule and seeing the shift of autism and It was overwhelming. I was in a homebirth practice...we never had a child that we delivered at home ever get autism and mostly because that population was either not vaccinating or very minimally vaccinating."
"I have now stopped vaccinating entirely...I've been put in a really unique position because I've been in practice before autism and after autism...I have the advantage of history of being around this time when the autism surfaced and I know it's vaccine related..."
I've been in practice for thirty years and once you've been around the whole vaccine issue, you, and you've seen you've seen the non vaccinated population, you then you can make a judgement...You can only do that if you've seen normal, if you've seen a non vaccinated population...If you haven't seen that you really don't have any business making any pronouncements about vaccines."
"We've never faced this before...We've never had this kind of a battle before...We're coming against a huge amount of money; a huge amount, a huge powerful industry and it's all coalesced...we're talking about big pharma, government, media all together... and God is more powerful. That's the only thing we have on our side..."

"God gave me two healthy, perfect, beautiful girls. One of them had her life destroyed by vaccines. Sacrificed for the "greater good". If you didn't know me, would you be able to tell which one it was? Which one deserved a life of disability and epilepsy? Which one deserved to be left non verbal and in so much pain from brain swelling that she spent her entire childhood smashing her head through walls?
I did everything right. I played by the "rules." 32 vaccines between 7 weeks old and 5 years old. When she was "diagnosed" with the fake label of "autism"' the rate was 1 out of 500 children. Is it ok with you that it's 1 in 45 now? How many of them will be like my daughter and never be independent?
God help this country that this is being allowed to happen for all these years. What will it take for you to stand up? When it happens to one of your children or grandchildren maybe? And if it didn't happen to one of yours, does that make it alright? Vaccine injury is unpredictable. Each vaccine is Russian roulette. Please pray for the truth. Because I just don't know what else to do. I'm mad as hell and I'm not going away. Vaccines are NOT safe for all children, you are being lied to. Nobody deserves to find out the hard way like we did." ~ Donna D.
These sisters were born just 15 months apart. There are many cases within families where an older child gets all their vaccines and appears to be fine and then a younger child, getting the very same vaccines, suffers serious injury and even death. As the mother of these two precious little girls who are now beautiful young women states, it truly is a game of "Russian Roulette," one that is being played with our children's lives. Please urge parents to become well informed about the harm that vaccines can and do cause in far too many cases.
In, "An exhausted mother first; a physician second..." the young mother you see in the photo describes what it feels like to be the parent of a severely vaccine injured child. In the video below, that same mother, a practicing psychiatrist, talks about her feelings of guilt and helplessness. Listen, too, as VAXXED team member, Polly Tommey, who is the mother of an adult vaccine injured autistic son, offers Anders' Mom and Dad encouragement and hope.
"I never questioned any of it. I feel so foolish. I have incredible guilt...because I'm a doctor, I should know. Everything has a side effect. I tell people that when I prescribe...but I never questioned any of his vaccines, in fact I was always very pro-vaccine."
Richie, Robbie and Claire were healthy, happy, active triplets who became vaccine injured at the age of nine months by the pneumococcal vaccine. They were later diagnosed with severe autism spectrum disorder. Seven years after their injury, their parents learned that the vaccine their babies received was contaminated and pulled from the market a week or two after the triplets received it; and after it killed a two-year old child. When they refused further vaccines for their already vaccine injured triplets, they were dismissed from their pediatric practice. They were told that they could not sue; and did not learn about the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program until it was too late to file a claim. They have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars trying to recover their children. Hear their story in the video below.
"They were no longer engaged in anything or anyone. They lost their smiles. They, they just were in their own little separate worlds. They never held hands again. They never looked at each other again...Vaccine injury is real. We were told it was genetic and then we were told by geneticists that there's no possible way three children would shut off on the same day. That that was absolutely statistically impossible especially being two boys and one girl."
If you've seen the documentary VAXXED From Coverup to Catastrophe; viewed the film trailer; or read my VAXXED related posts, you know that CDC Whistleblower, Dr. William Thompson, came forward in 2014 stating that the CDC has committed scientific fraud by manipulating findings and then destroying evidence in connection with a 2001 study (published in 2004) on the link between the MMR vaccine and Autism. That fraud has led to an exponential rise in autism in the U.S. and around the world. In July 2015, Congressman Bill Posey of Florida implored the House of Representatives to subpoena Dr. Thomas and conduct a full congressional hearing; however, that has not happened to date. Recently another group of CDC scientists have spoken out about corruption within the CDC. Watch the video below as VAXXED producer, Del Bigtree, discusses this recent development; and read the full CDC SPIDER letter.
“We are a group of scientists at CDC that are very concerned about the current state of ethics at our agency. It appears that our mission is being influenced and shaped by outside parties and rogue interests. It seems that our mission and Congressional intent for our agency is being circumvented by some of our leaders . . . These questionable and unethical practices threaten to undermine our credibility and reputation as a trusted leader in public health. We would like to see high ethical standards and thoughtful, responsible management restored at CDC. We are asking that you do your part to help clean up this house!"

In the video below, Alvin Moss, MD, a Professor of Medicine at West Virginia University School of Medicine, who has taught Medical Ethics for over 25 years, speaks out about vaccine safety, informed consent, and medical ethics. He also discusses why physicians are afraid to speak out about vaccines. Dr. Moss practices Internal Medicine; is a Nephrologist and does Palliative Care. He speaks out, not in an official role as a professor in the School of Medicine, but as someone, who has done independent research, is concerned about vaccine injury, and who, along with his wife, is personally aware of 12 cases of vaccine injury including a severely autistic vaccine injured neighbor.
In the opening of this video, Dr. Moss refers to CDC scientists who have come forward to voice their concerns about the integrity of research being conducted at the CDC, and conflicts of interest that are coming before the safety of the public. Read the CDC Spider statement here.
"If you read the records of the vaccine court, you can see that there are people that are being injured by vaccines . . . The concern is, are people properly informed? As, as somebody who teaches medical ethics, I'm very concerned that people receive informed consent; that they really know the benefits and the risks . . . These are major risks for what usually are mild illnesses. Measles is a mild illness. Chickenpox is a mild illness . . . So unfortunately, we are having major injuries; like, like autism is a lifelong injury for something that itself would have been a mild illness. So I think it is a matter of informed consent that people be told and then be able to decide whether they want it or not. Unfortunately for children attending public school, it's mandatory and so they don't get a choice which isn't fair."
" . . . There are still things in the vaccines that can be harmful. They have things like mercury in some, aluminum in others, polysorbate 80 . . . things that can cause infertility . . . there are viruses in some . . . There are all sorts of things where we don't really know the long-term safety and yet they're being done to people without sufficient data sufficient safety studies to assure us that they will be safe."
". . . I'm coming at it from the standpoint of being somebody who teaches medical ethics and is concerned about it. I don't think people should be forced to undergo something where we don't know for sure it's safe, and they haven't been given adequate consent."
"Unfortunately physicians are afraid because organized medicine has been mislead and I think it's really because there's been misleading data from the CDC . . . misled into thinking that vaccinations are uniformly a good thing . . . they are not uniformly a good thing; they can cause serious harm and people should be free to choose whether they want to be vaccinated or not. . . "
"I think you need some humility on the part of physicians. First of all, physicians have not been trained that vaccine injuries could be this great . . . I wish more of my physician colleagues were humble enough to say well let me look into this as opposed to saying well it couldn't be . . . "
August 29, 2016 letter to Chief of Staff, Carmen S. Villar, MSW, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) from CDC Spider (CDC Scientists Preserving Integrity, Diligence and Ethics in Research)
Dear Ms. Villar:
We are a group of scientists at CDC that are very concerned about the current state of ethics at our agency. It appears that our mission is being influenced and shaped by outside parties and rogue interests. It seems that our mission and Congressional intent for our agency is being circumvented by some of our leaders. What concerns us most, is that it is becoming the norm and not the rare exception. Some senior management officials at CDC are clearly aware and even condone these behaviors. Others see it and turn the other way. Some staff are intimidated and pressed to do things they know are not right. We have representatives from across the agency that witness this unacceptable behavior. It occurs at all levels and in all of our respective units. These questionable and unethical practices threaten to undermine our credibility and reputation as a trusted leader in public health. We would like to see high ethical standards and thoughtful, responsible management restored at CDC. We are asking that you do your part to help clean up this house! Continue reading letter.
Went to see Vaxxed again. Took my husband and one of my dearest friends. This movie yet again had me bawling, crying so much I used a paper napkin in a vain attempt to dry my face. But I feel NO SHAME. I watched everyone around me, including my husband, who never cries, openly sobbing as we saw footage of the older vaccine injured kids.
I cannot tell you how it feels to wonder if your child will ever talk, will stop hurting himself and us for no apparent reason, and to wonder if he is sad or hurting. To go to an appointment of some kind nearly every day. To go broke paying for said appointments bc insurance doesn't cover autism (yes, really!). To lose your whole extended family and most of your friends....
The only words I have for this are SOUL-SHATTERING and HEART WRENCHING.
This is all compounded because I handed him over for all those vaccines when he was sickly and under weight. I bought into the LIES THE CDC has pedaled to all of us...as a physician, I consider the years of education and hard work invested in my career, and I wonder how many other medical "facts" I have used in my practice on my patients which may in fact be very false and based on no scientific data?
What has happened to my son has absolutely changed the way I practice Medicine. I now really LISTEN to my patients. I vow NEVER to make anyone feel as dismissed and uncared for as we did leaving our pediatrician's office on follow up visits, when Dr. would make a point of near ridiculing me for thinking the encephalopathy had anything to do with the diagnosis of autism. This is what he said the last time we saw him:
"There is no way. Vaccines don't cause reactions like that...besides the RESEARCH (CDC??) proved there was no relationship between autism and vaccinations...your son has autism. There is no cure...IT WOULD BE SMART TO PLAN FOR HIS FUTURE, LIKE A GROUP HOME."
How would YOU react?
Medicine needs a revolution. And it's now.
The first picture is of my child the night he nearly died from vaccine injury. He now has apraxia, autism, Severe Immunodeficiency Syndrome, Metabolic Dysfunction, Hypotonia, and suspected Seizures.
Second picture -- I am: first an exhausted MOTHER TO A SEVERELY VACCINE INJURED CHILD, second a physician who sees things a lot differently now.
