"There are two sides to the story of vaccines. The predominant story told to us by government institutions and the mass media is that "vaccines are safe and effective." But are we really being told the whole story? In this course, we'll peel back the curtain and peer into the shadows as we examine vaccine safety and efficacy from a critical perspective."
- Luke Yamaguchi, The Dark Side of Vaccines -
Health educator, Luke Yamaguchi recently wrote an article entitled, "To Vaccinate or Not to Vaccinate" that offers interesting statistics you might want to consider when deciding whether or not to vaccinate. Luke talked about the article with Del Bigtree on the November 29th episode of The HighWire which you can watch below.
In addition to the article and a blog post entitled, "Vaccine Safety - An Appeal to Common Sense", Luke has compiled a free online course, "The Dark Side of Vaccines." Many thanks to Luke, who created the course "out of a sense of moral obligation" to share what he has learned about vaccines from his own independent research. The course is extremely well done. I urge you to take the course and share it with someone who has not considered the "other side" of the vaccine story. Offered in brief, comprehensive, well referenced segments, "The Dark Side of Vaccines" is ideal for those new to vaccine risk awareness and a great refresher for those of us who have been at it for a while.

When asked what inspired Luke to write "To Vaccinate or Not to Vaccinate," Luke replied...
“I actually asked myself this question. What can I do to create greater health and wellness in our world? And one of the answers that came to me was researching vaccines. So I spent about three months earlier this year looking into vaccines and I learned that there is a whole lot more to this story than vaccines are, quote, safe and effective; and so part of what I’m trying to do with this article that I wrote in Medium is to get people to think critically about this issue and not just accept at face value the sound bites, the generic sound bites that we keep hearing over and over again in the mainstream news …”
Watch interview with Luke below. Segment begins at point 25:08.
Luke is a health educator and wellness consultant dedicated to creating greater well-being in our world through education and empowerment. He is the founder of GutResolution.com where he works with clients to unearth the root causes of their health challenges. Before becoming a nutritionist, he taught at several colleges in the Pacific Northwest. Luke has a Master of Arts degree in Japanese pedagogy. In his free time, he enjoys dancing Argentine tango.

"The end game of every single debate on vaccines comes down to the quality of the research" by Ashley Everly
Ashley Everly is a toxicologist, science writer, activist and the mother of a vaccine injured child. She is also the force behind Vaccine Guide and the blog think love healthy. Click here to listen to a very informative interview with Ashley; and keep reading for a post that she recently shared on her Facebook page, about the importance of high quality vaccine safety research; which is vital for anyone considering vaccines for themselves or their children. If you are new to vaccine safety research and not sure where to begin, start here; and be sure read the recently published, very comprehensive well written, well referenced, "How To End the Autism Epidemic" by J. B. Handley.
The following post appeared on Ashley Everly's Facebook page on November 14, 2018. Thank you Ashley for another great post and for all that you do to protect children and families from the harm and heartache that vaccines can and do cause.
The end game of every single debate on vaccines comes down to the quality of the research.
The pro-vaccine side absolutely cannot disagree that there is a great deal of research that calls into question the safety and efficacy of vaccines.
What they will do, however, is discredit every single scientist or researcher - from countries all over the world - who publishes research that is critical of vaccines.
Followers of this page, of Vaccine Guide, and of many other prominent, outspoken critics of the vaccine establishment, know that there is more than enough published scientific research and evidence otherwise to prove that vaccines are neither safe, nor effective.
Unfortunately, this research hardly ever sees the light of day because the CDC and the mainstream media (more than they care to do their due diligence and put the health and welfare of the people first) are mouthpieces for the industry.
"Pediatricians’ offices have become ugly battlegrounds. Intelligent, well-informed and loving parents asking legitimate questions about vaccination are being belittled and treated with disrespect and contempt by too many pediatricians robotically implementing the CDC’s inflexible vaccine schedule in clear violation of the informed consent principle."

I remember when I took my first-born baby to the pediatrician for his first checkup 40 years ago. Like most young Moms, I looked up to my pediatrician and completely trusted him. I did everything he told me to do, never questioning his expertise or doubting him, believing that he would never recommend or do anything that would put my baby in harm’s way.
Much has changed since 1978. Back then infants and children were getting half as many vaccines as they do today.1 Parents had no information at all about vaccine risks and failures. We just followed the doctor’s orders.
Today, the subject of vaccination is the most often discussed health topic in America. Not a day goes by without mothers and fathers being reminded that the health of the nation depends upon making sure their children get every one of the 69 doses of 16 CDC recommended vaccines exactly on schedule. 2 3 4

About 50 vaccine risk awareness advocates (several of whom are pictured above) traveled to CDC Headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia, at their own expense, to address members of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) during the public comment segment of the October 24-25, 2018 meeting. ACIP meets three times per year to make vaccine recommendations that are ultimately added to the vaccine schedule; and then mandated for school, work situations, military, etc. Once vaccines are added to the CDC schedule, the pharmaceutical company that made the vaccine and the doctor or healthcare provider that administered the vaccine are not liable if you or your child is injured or dies from that vaccine. Click here to view the October ACIP agenda. Note that public comments occurred after presentations were made and votes unanimously approving the recommendations were cast.
Below are three of the comments made to the committee. Be sure to turn on the speaker at the bottom right corner of each video for sound. Please listen, learn and share.
I recently shared a powerful post entitled, "To The Doctor That Injured My Twin Boys." The following "To The Doctor..." letter is from the mother of three children, including a vaccine injured son. You may recognize Hillary's name from her powerful "Just a bunch of crazy mothers" soliloquy. Thank you Hillary for permission to share and for all you do to spread vaccine truth and protect other children and families from the harm and heartache that vaccines can and do cause. God bless and take care...
To The Doctor That Injured My Child
by Hillary Simpson
To The Doctor That Injured My Child:
I’m sure you don’t remember me but I will never be able to forget you.
I vividly remember your kind eyes and gentle touch, your sense of humor and calm energy. I remember the tiny toy duck that you always had with you. The one you would slather with hand sanitizer every time you walked into our room.
I connected with you as a fellow mother and felt like you had my child’s best interest at heart. I knew I had made the right decision by choosing you as our pediatrician and I felt lucky since you were in high demand at one of the nation’s top hospitals.
I figured that I had won the Doctor Lottery and eagerly scheduled our well-baby checkups anticipating our conversation. You were always so nice.
And then I started to question vaccines.
J. B. Handley's new book, "How To End the Autism Epidemic" has created quite a stir in the vaccine truth movement. Here's a brief synopsis from the book's publisher, Chelsea Green Publishing...
"In How to End the Autism Epidemic, Generation Rescue’s co-founder J.B. Handley offers a compelling, science-based explanation of what’s causing the autism epidemic, the lies that enable its perpetuation, and the steps we must take as parents and as a society in order to end it...Handley confronts and dismantles the most common lies about vaccines and autism. He then lays out, in detail, what the truth actually is: new published science links the aluminium adjuvant used in vaccines to immune activation events in the brains of infants, triggering autism; and there is a clear legal basis for the statement that vaccines cause autism, including previously undisclosed depositions of prominent autism scientists under oath." - Chelsea Green Publishing
On the September 20th episode of The HighWire, host Del Bigtree interviewed J.B. Handley, Jenny McCarthy, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Rolf Hazlehurst, a Tennessee Assistant District Attorney and father of a vaccine injured autistic son who was denied compensation in the Omnibus Autism Proceeding (OAP). Del and guests discuss J.B.'s book; review the details of the Omnibus hearings and the fraud perpetrated by Department of Justice lawyers that resulted in the denial of compensation to more than 5,500 families for their vaccine injured children; and closed the door to any further claims of vaccine induced autism. Listen to their powerful and eye-opening discussion below; and please share with others.

Robert Kennedy, Jr. has been fighting to protect all of us from exposures that have a negative impact on our environment and our health for a very long time. In recent years, much of his effort, through his World Mercury Project, has focused on the adverse health effects those environmental factors, including vaccines, have on our children. World Mercury Project has changed its name to Children's Health Defense with a mission "to end the childhood health epidemics by working aggressively to eliminate harmful exposures, hold those responsible accountable, and establish safeguards so this never happens again."

To The Doctor That Injured My Twin Boys
by Alexandra Simone
To The Doctor That Injured My Twin Boys:
I’m sure you don’t remember me but I will never be able to forget you.
I feel a little hesitant to blame you for their injuries because I know that it didn’t start with you. I know that it started in the womb. It started when I was pregnant with my boys in Okinawa, Japan while my husband was stationed there in the Marine Corps and the military hospital staff injected me with the TDaP and flu shot in my first trimester and injected me with RhoGAM in my third trimester. It continued when my boys were born as preemies at 34 weeks and how at 4lb 8oz my son, Noah, was injected with Vitamin K and Hep B upon entering the world while my son, Caleb - 4lb 5oz, was injected with Vitamin K and did not receive his Hep B until two weeks later. It is chilling to see how my Caleb is the one with some language while my Noah remains non-verbal and unheard. I know that their injuries began during the earliest, most fragile period of their development and because of it they struggled to thrive.
But mark my words and despite their early insults, they were born healthy, they were born strong. Two weeks in the NICU with our favorite nursing staff and we were out of there, headed home, and we started to meet all our milestones! My boys were not gone just yet… they still had a chance…
I still can’t blame you just yet…
I remember the day I prepared my boys for their 2-month wellness check-up and in the midst of the chaos of throwing together bottles and diapers to get there on time, my husband asks me if it is necessary for us to go to this appointment and maybe we should rethink their shots. He didn’t really want us to vaccinate the boys but I was furious that he would try to have this conversation with me as I am heading out the door to our doctor’s appointment. I couldn’t fathom how my husband could possibly know any better than my doctor! We had been together since I was 15 years old and now I was a 21 year old mom. There’s no way my husband could know better than my doctor. I shut him down so quickly before he could talk and ran out that door to get two more shots…
...and two more at 4 months…
...and two more at 6…
If you've read the past few "Restoring Olivia" posts that I've shared on this website or follow www.restoringolivia.com, you know the monumental health challenges that 19 year old Olivia has faced throughout her young life as a result of vaccines she received when she was 18 months old, followed by years of medical treatments that often did more harm than good. The last few months have been especially difficult for Olivia and her mother, Kelly; so I was overjoyed when I read Kelly's message about Olivia being strong enough to return to school! Please join me in sending love and prayers to Olivia and Kelly for a strong and healthy 2018-2019 school year!
Back to School - 2018!!!!
by Kelly Johnson, www.restoringolivia.com
I am so encouraged that Olivia is strong enough to go back to school!!! it was a busy summer rehabbing this beauty! You can read about it here:
Thank you for all the powerful prayers for her recovery this summer - we felt your love. Even if we have a long way to go, I'm incredibly thankful for every "mini" step forward.
She definitely looks irritated here because I missed getting a picture this morning and tried to get one after school but the rain started pouring down!
A young mother recently told me how her infant son slept through the night following his vaccines, not even waking up for his feeding. Her pediatrician assured her the next morning that it was "normal." As you will learn in the video below, "excessive sleepiness" is a vaccine reaction to watch for. Knowing how to recognize a vaccine reaction, and asking yourself these 8 questions before you vaccinate, could save your child from long-term vaccine injury and even death. Please share this important information with those who choose to vaccinate.

Do you know how to recognize a vaccine reaction?
Like with prescription drugs and other pharmaceutical products, reactions to vaccines can be mild or severe. There can be complete recovery or long lasting health problems after vaccine reactions. Rarely, vaccine reactions can be fatal. 1 2
If you are making a decision about vaccination for yourself or your child, it is important to first become fully informed about each vaccine’s reported side effects, precautions and contraindications, which means reasons for why a person may be at risk for having a serious reaction. 3 4
It is especially important for parents to become informed about vaccine complications and how to recognize the symptoms of a vaccine reaction. 5
