When mothers speak out about the dangers of vaccines, they're often brushed off as being irrational or "just crazy mothers." Thirty years ago, a pediatrician I was considering called me "crazy" when I raised questions about vaccines. (He never did become our pediatrician.)
Young moms have told me that their instinct, along with research they've done, tells them not to vaccinate their babies; or at least to delay vaccinating; but their husbands, some of whom have not done any serious vaccine safety research, disagree and insist on following the doctor's recommendation. It's a very difficult and all too common situation.
Fortunately, more and more dads, are asking questions about vaccine safety. Unfortunately, some start researching after losing a child to vaccines; or they get pulled into this issue after their own children have been adversely affected by vaccines. They want answers that the medical establishment is not giving them.
Two autism fathers who watched their children's health deteriorate following vaccines -- J. B. Handley and Mark Blaxill -- have been researching, writing and speaking out about vaccine truth and vaccine safety for years. Their contributions to this movement are powerful.
The two young fathers in the video below, Adam Ringham and Chris Kickoff, are taking what they have learned and speaking out in an attempt to educate others and they do it in their own unique style. They have also written a book to help parents make well informed decisions
"Don't give honey to an infant but go ahead and let them get over 70 vaccines" is an entertaining and enlightening video. (Make sure the sound is not muted so you can hear their clever rant.), These two young dads have done their homework on vaccines and a lot more pregnancy and baby related topics. Keep reading for information about their book, "So You're Going To Have A Baby."
Many pregnant mothers, and fathers too, become intimidated by their obstetricians and agree to vaccines during pregnancy, even when their gut instinct is telling them not too. It is very important to understand that doctors who recommend vaccines are "following orders" and doing as they are told by the CDC and medical associations who also follow CDC recommendations. As doctors have shared, they do not study vaccines in medial school and relatively few do independent vaccine research after medical school. I have witnessed expectant parents who were considering vaccines during pregnancy decide against it, simply after reading the vaccine package insert. (See a sampling of excerpts from package inserts at end of this post.) For mom's and baby's health, it is incredibly important that expectant parents educate themselves about vaccine risks before agreeing to any vaccines. It's the responsible thing to do. Simply "trusting" your doctor is not enough.
The following information and video are from World Mercury Project.
The CDC recommends that pregnant women receive flu and TDaP vaccines even though vaccine package inserts state that "safety and effectiveness have not been established in pregnant women." Mothers are reporting miscarriage, pre-term labor and health issues for themselves and their children following these vaccines. A recent CDC study found that pregnant women vaccinated with the influenza vaccine had two times greater odds of miscarrying their babies compared to women who did not receive the flu vaccine
Cathy Isaacs was pregnant with twins when, against her better judgement, her doctor convinced her to get a flu vaccine. Within hours of receiving the vaccine Cathy began to miscarry. She lost her son. Her daughter was vaccine-injured and subsequently diagnosed with Autism. Listen as Cathy tells her story in the video below.
