Vaccine News – Vaccine Revolt 1904 (Portuguese: Revolta da Vacina)

Did you know there are THREE different ways that mankind causes paralytic polio? They are very strange and interesting concepts, but most doctors reluctantly agree on them. This video, Part 3 of a series of videos explaining how Polio is man-made, talks about the first two man-made causes. Crazy!

OpEd: Vaccines And Censorship Alive And Well In Australia
by Tom Petrie, C.D.N.
Yup, censorship and extremely narrow-minded thinking is alive and well in Australia! Those old enough will remember Dr. Archie Kalakeranis who, in the late 1960’s and throughout the 1970’s, linked SIDS to extreme vitamin C deficiency, also known as scurvy. The grief he took for over 15 years is not unlike the grief that has fallen upon Dr. Andrew Wakefield today in Britain! If one were to read his 1998 Lancet paper carefully, they would note that he only suggested “further investigation of the M.M.R. is necessary” (w/regard to GI troubles in children). In other words, he wasn’t an “anti-vaxxer,” but just someone who was doing what any good clinician would (and should) do: Investigate and report on what they see, not just what they’re “suppose to see.”
Yet, if someone wants an honest investigation of vaccines and their link to this or that health challenge, they, (like some ardent vaccine advocates in Australia claim), suddenly become “anti-vaxxer’s!” This is really ridiculous and it’s like me becoming “anti-running,” because I might sprain my ankle while running or being anti-Frisbee, because it might hurt if it hits me!
As explained in Anne Dachel’s book, “The BIG Autism Cover-up,” the media has been covering up the environmental causes of this epidemic for decades now in the United States. This censorship also clearly exists in Australia as illustrated by sad efforts to censor the filming of VAXXED in various towns there.
Censorship can be active or passive. It is active as is happening now in Australia in efforts to STOP the showing of VAXXED, which has had record screenings in a number of locations. In other cases, the censorship is more passive (as proven by Dr. K’s experiences four decades earlier): A clear indication that vaccines can precipitate SIDS was simply ignored entirely by the medical profession and this censorship and cover-up has continued to this day, year 2017.
So ask yourself if you knew that SIDS is primarily “infantile scurvy” often precipitated by a mere vaccine &/or a “mild cold”?! So if public health officials can ignore that a “mere vitamin deficiency” can precipitate a death of an infant, is it NOT much of a stretch to say they could routinely ignore that vaccines can cause various health challenges in children? Not at all!

15 Things You Don’t Know About Polio
1. A pesticide common in the 1800’s was called Paris Green. A green liquid because it was a combination of copper and arsenic or lead and arsenic. Some of the most toxic substances known to humankind. This super toxin was also used as a dye, in many items, including wall paper and paint. It was the sole focus of murder mystery novels at the time, as arsenic was known to be a very efficient way to stage a murder “for unknown reasons”, as arsenic kills but is hard to detect after the victim succumbs to the poison. http://bit.ly/2urZvqu and http://bit.ly/2wL5tPT
2. This pesticide worked by causing neurological damage in the bugs, causing organ failure.
3. Polio consists of symptoms synonymous with neurological damage, causing organ failure.
4. Heavy metal poisoning from lead, mercury and other similar heavy metals manifest lesions on neurological tissues, meaning the toxin destroys the nerve/communication pathways connecting the brain to the organs in the body. http://bit.ly/1OLcFgG
5. Polio victims present lesions on neurological tissue, that cause the organs to malfunction all around the body. (lungs, heart, nerves that control walking etc)
6. Polio outbreaks hit throughout the summer, only during pesticide spraying times. (not the sunless and damp winter/spring seasons regarding other disease outbreaks)

Toddler who was given an adult flu shot is left severely brain damaged and unable to walk or talk
JANE HANSEN, The Sunday Telegraph
A TODDLER taken to the doctor for a child’s flu shot was left unable to walk or talk after being given a version of the drug banned for under fives.
Lachlan Neylan suffered severe brain damage, including seizures and swelling of the brain, known as encephalopathy, after a GP accidentally administered the CSL Fluvax shot in March last year.
His parents Stacey and Adrian Neylan said Lachlan’s temperature soared and he began having fits within seven hours of ­receiving the injection.
“He just collapsed and started to have seizures,” Mr Neylan said. “Doctors said they thought our son wouldn’t make it through the weekend. It was terrifying.”
Mr Neylan said before the injection their son had been a “walking, talking toddler”, but after the injection “he was back to being a three month old; he couldn’t sit, walk, or use his arms”.
While other flu vaccines are approved for children, Lachlan, was given the ­contraindicated Fluvax, which was banned for children under five in 2010 ­after mass injections triggered febrile ­convulsions in one in every 100 children; 10 times the expected rate.
The family said they were concerned doctors were still using Fluvax on children, despite the ban. A spokesperson for the Department of Health said there had been “43 confirmed notifications of CSL Fluvax being administered to children ­under five years of age in Australia” this year. The GP in question has admitted ­error and the government’s adverse events report also admits the error.
“This was a mistake, and the doctor has admitted it, but it is still happening and we don’t want anyone else to go through what we have been through,” Mr Neylan said.

Menor con Guillain Barre está en coma
Afirman que malestar inició por dosis contra VPH
Una escolar de 11 años está internada en terapia intensiva en el hospital de niños Mario Ortiz. Según la madre, los médicos afirmaron que se trata de Guillain Barre, una enfermedad que afecta al sistema nervioso y que provoca parálisis. Aunque la mamá de la menor aseguró que los síntomas iniciaron el mismo día en que su hija fue vacunada contra el Virus del Papiloma Humano (VPH), que tiene como objetivo prevenir cáncer cérvico.
Desarrollo del caso. La madre de la menor, Rosy Mary García, explicó que sospecha que el estado de su hija es producto de la vacuna contra el VPH pues un día después de que se le aplicó la dosis, el 26 de abril, presentó malestares, primero náuseas y fiebre y luego de algunos días dolor en la garganta. Aseguró que la llevó a internar al hospital Francés, donde sospechaban de rabia, después de varios estudios no se confirmó. Agregó que este lunes la tuvieron que trasladar al hospital de niños, directamente a terapia intensiva. “Todo comenzó con la vacuna”, insistió la mamá a tiempo de indicar que tiene otra hija, pero como tiene solo 9 años, no le aplicaron la dosis.
Aseguró que las compañeras de su hija mayor, que estudian en la unidad educativa Amsterdam en la zona de Los Lotes, igual presentaron malestares, el mismo 26, aunque solo fue mareos y vómitos.

Snoop Dogg Exposes Vaccines

If You Vaccinate, Ask 8 Questionshttp://ow.ly/4KyZ30eqxeG
Vaccines are pharmaceutical products that come with risks that can be greater for some people. No vaccine is safe for everyone.
If you choose to vaccinate, ask 8 questions before you do:
Number One: Am I sick right now? Getting vaccinated while sick could increase risks for a vaccine reaction or lower vaccine effectiveness.
Number Two: Have I had a bad reaction to a vaccination before? Getting re-vaccinated after a previous vaccine reaction could cause a more serious reaction, injury or death.
Number Three: Do I have a personal or family history of vaccine reactions, neurological disorders, severe allergies or immune system problems? Always review your personal and family medical history when evaluating vaccine benefits and risks.
Number Four: Do I know the disease and vaccine risks? Learn about disease and vaccine risks that could be greater for you or your child.
Number Five: Do I have full information about the vaccine’s side effects? Before you take a risk, find out what it is for each vaccine you or your child will receive.
Number Six: Do I know how to identify and report a vaccine reaction? Learn how to recognize vaccine reaction symptoms and where and how to report them.
Number Seven: Do I know I need to keep a written record, including the vaccine manufacturer’s name and lot number, for vaccinations? The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 requires all vaccine providers to record information about vaccines given to you or your child.
Number Eight: Do I know I have the right to make an informed choice? Informed consent to medical risk taking, including vaccine risk taking, is a human right.

Vaccination Policy and the U.K. Government: The Untold Truth
What do Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy, Gulf War Syndrome and shady vaccination policies have to do with the UK government? By using a wide selection of studies, papers and documents released under the Freedom of Information Act, we uncover how, by prioritizing vaccination policy over vaccine safety, the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunization (JCVI), the Department of Health (DH), the Committee on Safety of Medicines (CSM) and the Ministry of Defence may have damaged the health of millions of people worldwide.

The Vaccine Riots and the Difficulty of Modernization in Rio de Janeiro

Vaccine Revolt 1904 (Portuguese: Revolta da Vacina)
To eradicate smallpox, Cruz convinced the Congress to approve the Mandatory Vaccination Law (October 31, 1904), which permitted sanitary brigade workers, accompanied by police, to enter homes to apply the vaccine by force.
The population was confused and discontented. The city seemed in ruins, many people had lost their homes, while others had had their homes invaded by the health workers and police. Articles in the press criticized the action of the government and spoke of possible risks of the vaccine. Moreover, it was rumored that the vaccine would have to be applied to the “intimate parts” of the body (or at least that women would have to undress in order to be vaccinated), aggravating the anger of the population, and resulting in a popular rebellion.
The approval of the Vaccination Law was the proximate cause of the revolt: on November 5, the opposition created the Liga Contra a Vacina Obrigatória (League Against Mandatory Vaccination).
From November 10 through 16, the city became a battlefield. The excited population looted shops, overturned and burned trams, made barricades, pulled out tracks, broke poles, and attacked government forces with rocks, sticks, and debris. On November 14, the cadets of the Escola Militar da Praia Vermelha (military college) also mutinied against the government’s actions. In reaction, the government suspended mandatory vaccination and declared a state of siege. The rebellion was contained, leaving 30 dead and 110 wounded. Hundreds of imprisoned people were deported to the then frontier region of Acre.

Vaccine pioneer admits adding cancer-causing virus to Vaccine

Vaccine pioneer admits adding cancer-causing virus to Vaccine
In this interview Dr. Maurice Hilleman reveals some astounding revelations. He admits that Merck drug company vaccines (Polio) had been deliberately contaminated with SV40, a cancer-causing monkey virus from 1953 – 63.
For years, researchers suggested that millions of vials of polio vaccine, contaminated with SV40, infected individuals which caused human tumors, and by 1999, molecular evidence of SV40 infections were showing up in children born after 1982. Some experts now suggest the virus may have remained in the polio vaccine until as late as 1999.
In 2002, the journal Lancet published compelling evidence that contaminated polio vaccine was responsible for up to half of the 55,000 non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cases that were occurring each year. And there is the likelihood that there was an importing and spreading of the AIDS virus in the same manner, as revealed in the video.
At first no one could fathom how the virus had been transmitted into the human population, but this shocking video proves that it was deliberately added to the vaccine by Dr. Maurice Hilleman, which was “good science” at that time.
Just Who is Dr. Maurice Hilleman?
Now, for those of you who may think Dr. Hilleman was just another crackpot (he passed away in 2005), think again. He was, and still is, the leading vaccine pioneer in the history of vaccines. He developed more than three dozen vaccines—more than any other scientist in history—and was the developer of Merck’s vaccine program.
He was a member of the U.S. National Academy of Science, the Institute of Medicine, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the American Philosophical Society, and received a special lifetime achievement award from the World Health Organization.
When he was chief of the Department of Respiratory Diseases with what’s now the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, he discovered the genetic changes that occur when the influenza virus mutates, known as shift and drift. He was also one of the early vaccine pioneers to warn about the possibility that simian viruses might contaminate vaccines.So Dr. Hilleman knew what he was talking about. And in his own words, “vaccines have to be considered the bargain basement technology for the 20th Century.”

CDC admits 98 million Americans were given cancer virus via the polio shot
The CDC has admitted that between 1955–1963 over 98 million Americans received one or more doses of a polio shot which was contaminated with a cancer-causing virus called Simian vacuolating virus 40 (SV40).  The CDC quickly took down the page, along with Google, but the site was luckily cached and saved to symbolize this grand admission.

Historical Vaccine Safety Concerns
Simian Virus 40(SV40) – 1955-1963
Some of the polio vaccine administered from 1955 to 1963 was contaminated with a virus called simian virus 40 (SV40). The virus came from the monkey kidney cells used to produce the vaccines.  Once the contamination was discovered in the Salk inactivated polio vaccine in use at that time, the U.S. government established requirements for vaccine testing to verify that all new batches of the polio vaccine were free of SV40. Because of research done with SV40 in animal models, there was some concern that the virus could cause cancer. However, evidence suggests that SV40 has not caused cancer in humans.

Volume 3, Number 2—June 1997
Simian Virus 40 (SV40), a Possible Human Polyomavirus (Workshop Held at NIH)
During the past 4 years, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assays have detected DNA sequences related to SV40 (an oncogenic simian polyomavirus) in a variety of human tissues, especially choroid plexus tumors, ependymomas, mesotheliomas, and osteosarcomas (1-7). These findings were supported by the isolation of infectious SV40 from a choroid plexus tumor (8).
Although another paper reported the failure to detect SV40 DNA in mesotheliomas (9), these studies have reawakened interest in inadvertent human exposure to SV40 in the late 1950s and early 1960s when polio and adenovirus vaccines prepared in rhesus monkey cells containing SV40 were used (10,11). In response to the implications of detecting SV40 DNA in human tumors, the Food and Drug Administration, National Institutes of Health, National Vaccine Program Office, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention sponsored a workshop on SV40 on January 27-28, 1997 at the National Institutes of Health to examine the possibility that SV40 is an infectious agent in humans.

The following statement is an introduction for a more detailed packet on SV-40 and animal viruses in the production of vaccines.

Statement by Barbara Loe Fisher, Co-Founder & President
National Vaccine Information Center
Workshop on Simian Virus-40 (SV-40): A Possible Human Polyomavirus
January 27-28, 1997
Bethesda, Maryland
The National Vaccine Information Center (NVIC), which was founded in 1982 and represents health care consumers and health care professionals concerned about vaccine safety, became actively involved in 1994 in researching reports of contamination of childhood vaccines with animal viruses and the possibility that inter-species transfer of animal viruses into humans via vaccines has had a negative impact on public health. Our concern was that government health agencies and industry had not adequately addressed many of the most important questions that remained unanswered about the contamination of polio vaccines with simian (monkey) viruses.

Meningitis Vaccine Causes Seizures & Paralyzes 40 Kids

Meningitis Vaccine Causes Seizures & Paralyzes 40 Kids
The vaccine industry has slowly grown into a monster that primarily feeds on children in order to expand its current toxic empire. MenAfriVac is the latest concoction being peddled by the industries inoculation police funded primarily by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The Gates had provided a 10-year grant to create the Meningitis Vaccine Project (MVP) which quickly gained the approval from the WHO (World Health Organization) & PATH (Program for Appropriate Technology in Health) both of which are elite eugenic agencies. They would lead the development, testing, licensure, and widespread introduction of a conjugate vaccine that could be transported without the need for refrigeration and would cost less than .50 cents per dose.
Imagine how happy the control freaks in charge of population reduction must feel to know that it only cost half a dollar to create new customers for their medical death care system. Over 500 children living in a small village in Gouro, Chad are the victims of the vaccine industries current experiment called MenAfriVac. After administering the vaccine health officials noted that children started to cry some went into seizures and over 40 children became paralyzed.
This particular vaccine is the first of its kind to be used in areas where refrigeration is limited and temperatures exceed the normal parameters of traditional vaccines. The meningitis vaccine project claim the vaccine can be used at temperatures up to 40°C or 100°F. When examining the insert provided by the World Health Organization on the meningitis vaccine it states that the vaccine should be kept at temperatures of 2°-8°C or 35 to 46°F. The insert also states that the vaccines containing thimerosal a mercury-based preservative that is toxic to humans and is known to cause neurological disorders.

40 Different Studies Proving GM Foods Are Destroying Our Health

40 Different Studies Proving GM Foods Are Destroying Our Health
Even Short Term Studies (When Independently Done) are Demonstrating Real Safety Issues with GMOs
Dr. Oraby fed rats a diet of GM soy and GM corn for 1-3 months. Despite the short duration of the study, the study ended with a surprising number of dead and unhealthy rats, except of course the control group of rats who weren’t fed GMO food. The damage done to these rats from short term GMO consumption was staggering. This study showed a wide range of toxic effects, including DNA damage, abnormal sperm, blood changes, and damage to the liver, the kidneys and testes. This study shows concrete evidence that GM foods are hazardous to your health. Most Americans have been eating GMOs for a lot longer than three months. The only reason we’re not all dead is because GM foods are not the only food that we eat. If 100% of all of our food were genetically modified, then our overall health as a nation would be even worse than it already is. As a nation, the U.S. is in very poor health, and we have every reason to believe that genetically modified foods are a big part of the problem. Rats can thrive on garbage and all manner of junk food. But if you feed rats enough GM food, it will cause them all sorts of health problems.
The following studies, compiled by GMO Free USA, prove how the rats suffered a wide assortment of ailments:

The Polio Vaccine Cancer Cover-up & Cancer risk associated with simian virus 40 contaminated polio vaccine

Cancer risk associated with simian virus 40 contaminated polio vaccine.
RESULTS:
Our analysis indicates increased rates of ependymomas (37%), osteogenic sarcomas (26%), other bone tumors (34%) and mesothelioma (90%) among those in the exposed as compared to the unexposed birth cohort.
CONCLUSIONS:
These data suggest that there may be an increased incidence of certain cancers among the 98 million persons exposed to contaminated polio vaccine in the U.S.; further investigations are clearly justified.

The Polio Vaccine Cancer Cover-up
The polio vaccines developed in the 1950s by Jonas Salk and Albert Sabin allegedly eradicated one of the most feared diseases of the 20th century. The media hailed the success of these vaccines as a modern day miracle. However, the polio story has a much darker side that has mostly been kept a secret.
Both Sabin’s live virus vaccine given orally and Salk’s inactivated virus vaccine given by injection were far from perfect. In fact, in 1955 the vaccine used in Berkley, California infected some 200 children, leaving several dead and many paralyzed. Yet this incident proved minor compared to what was later discovered.
In order to grow large quantities of the poliovirus, scientists needed to use Rhesus monkey kidney cells, which carried many different viruses. As a result, their polio vaccine became contaminated with a cancer-causing virus carried by these monkeys. This vaccine was given to almost 100 million people.
The virus found in this particular polio vaccine was SV40, or simian virus. It is present in human tumors, and research has established it to be a contributing factor in the rise of many types of cancer, including mesothelioma, bone, and brain cancer.
When the government became aware of this, it was downplayed for fear the public would stop accepting vaccination.
