So here it is, a little bit of why we no longer vaccinate, with reasoning for each particular vaccination before 12 years old:
As of 2016, a child in America is scheduled to received 74 vaccinations by the time they turn 18. With each shot, you are taking the risk of your child suffering the side effects, even as severe as SIDS, paralysis, deafness, blindness, and death. That’s 74 times… I just personally can’t agree to roll those dice with the lives and lifelong health of my children. With most shots, you are also allowing heavy metals to accumulate in their body.
I am extremely uncomfortable with the notion that as a duty to society, I must choose to inject known poisons into my child’s body. I will never be convinced again to stick a needle into my child containing recognized carcinogens, neurotoxins, and other poisons that can cross the blood-brain barrier and build up in my child’s body. When you put something like aluminum into the body by way of injection, it bypasses the protective mechanisms of the gastrointestinal tract, circulates in your body, and is deposited in your body tissues. *There are NO STUDIES that prove that the amount of aluminum in vaccines is safe to inject into an infant or a toddler (or human for that matter).*
Aluminum IS however known to cause neurological harm, degenerative problems, autoimmune disorders, and inflammatory conditions. Conditions that fall under these categories are: Lupus, Graves’ Disease, Lupus, Celiac Disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Chron’s Disease, Endometriosis, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Scleroderma, Vitiligo, Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Distrophy, Cancer, Parkinson’s, Diabetes, Asthma, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, and more. These are debilitating ailments that a child can develop at any time and face for the rest of their lives. How can someone tell me as a mother that I need to do this to my child because “it’s best for everyone else?”
Other harmful ingredients and additives whose toxic effects have NEVER been examined by injecting them into small children are Formaldehyde, MSG, 2-Phenoxyethanol, and others.
Formaldehyde is a carcinogen, that is a fact. It can cause genetic damage and kidney damage if inhaled, but no one has bothered to study the effects of shooting it into our children with needles. Glutamate, a component of MSG, is an excitotoxin which is a chemical that affects brain function. They’ve taken MSG out of baby food, but left it in vaccines… 2-Phenoxyethanol is a chemical preservative used in perfumes, insect repellents, germicides, solvent for dyes, plasticizers, and antiseptics. It is harmful and can cause reproductive defects and severe skin and eye irritation if inhaled, swallowed, or absorbed through the skin. Again, despite this, it’s still in vaccines and the harm hasn’t been studied by way of injection. But let’s just assume they’re all safe, right?
Also to be considered is the use of any sort of human DNA such as aborted fetal cells. This can trigger autoimmune reactions. The immune system will attack the foreign human DNA, and this attack can then in turn become an attack against the child’s own body because it can’t tell the difference between same-species DNA. The injected human DNA inserts itself into the genes of the child and alters their genetic function. Animal substances are concerning as well, because when they are screened for disease, there is a possibility of missing animal viruses there are no tests for. This has happened before.
I can’t fathom routinely injecting poisons that I know are harmful and toxic into my child and taking the risk of life-long ailments. Yes, that means I am taking a bit of a higher risk of her catching a disease that vaccines may offer some protection against, but the risks are low, and *vaccinated children catch them too.* It is a FACT that certain toxic ingredients are cause harm, while it is only a possibility that my child may catch diseases we could vaccinate against. There are healthy ways to prevent and combat these diseases, and contracting and managing most of them will result in lifelong immunity.
What I’ve written below this are the chances of my child catching the diseases vaccines are supposed to protect against, and the risks that I feel outweigh the benefits of each vaccination. This includes the side effects of the shots and the harmful chemicals that they contain.
HIB: HIB is NOT a common disease. A breastfed child who does not attend daycare is at an even lower risk of catching it. The fatality rate of those who do catch it is 5%, usually when it is not caught soon enough. There are about 25 cases per year in the US, meaning the risk for my child to catch it in their first 2 years of life is about 1 in 200,000. After age 2, it’s nearly 0. It is also treatable. Concerning adverse reactions include seizures, encephalitis (brain swelling), autoimmune reactions, nervous system dysfunction, anaphalaxis, angiodema, apnea, hives, Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS), convulsions, renal failure, and severe allergic reactions. The vaccine contains aluminum and formaldehyde, which I’ll explain the issues about later.
PC (Pneumococcus): 1/3 of severe cases of Pc are caused by strains NOT covered by the vaccine. The chances of a child by age 2 having a severe case is 1 out of 2850. Pc is treatable. Again, a breastfed child not in daycare is at low risk for catching this. Most infants suffer one or more systemic or local reactions with this shot. The more concerning adverse reactions in infants and toddlers during clinical studies included: DEATH (SIDS), bronchiolitis, gastroenteritis, pneumonia, SIDS, apnea, decreased limb mobility, arthritis, GBS, seizures, heart failure, pancreatitis/myocardial infarction resulting in death. This vaccine contains aluminum.
DTaP (Diphtheria, Tetanus, Pertussis): Diphtheria is extremely rare, at 5 cases per year and not a single one since 2003 in the US. The risk is basically 0. Tetanus is virtually unheard of in people under 5 years old, and there are only 10 cases per year in people 5-25 years of age. The risk is 1 in 500,000. Pertussis (Whooping Cough) is more common, but in my child’s first 12 years of life, their risk of having a severe case is 1 in 3333. Pertussis is rarely problematic after 1 year of age. Infection is likely to create life-long immunity. It is treatable. The fatality rate is 1% for infants and toddlers and adults do not die from it in the US. Reactions to this vaccine include: death, brain injury, coma, severe seizure disorders, GBS, Brachial neuritis (dysfunction of nerves in the arm), Cyanosis, anaphylactic shock, grand mal seizures, bronchitis, pneumonia, hypotonia, encephalopathy, apnea, SIDS, and autism. This contains aluminum, formaldehyde, polysorbate 80, glutaraldehyde, and 2-phenoxyethanol.
Hep B: This disease is also rare in children under 12. Virtually all cases of Hep B in infants each year are results of transmission by the mother at birth. Vaccinating for this actually began with attempts to control the disease by stopping it within high risk groups. When this didn’t work, they started vaccinating all newborns for it instead. There’s really no reason for an infant to get this shot if the mother is not infected. In the first 12 years of life, chances of contracting Hep B are 1 in 40,000, almost all passed on from the mother. SOME known reactions of this shot are: lupus, blood vessel inflammation, Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, liver damage, wheezing, hair loss, bruises, GBS, eczema , liver damage, asthma, heart palpitations, arthritis, anaphylaxis, severe nerve dysfunc. Paralysis, GBS, seizures, spinal cord inflammation, optic nerve inflammation, multiple sclerosis. This contains aluminum and formaldehyde.
Rotavirus: Most children who gets this don’t even know and recover from it just like any other common virus. When it becomes severe, it’s usually due to dehydration. Fatalities are rare. This vaccine is a live virus, meaning a child who gets the shot can pass the virus on to others or become infected themselves with Rotavirus (Rotavirus infection is a possible side effect). Common side effects mimic the virus itself. Worse reactions include: seizures, Kawasaki disease, intussusception (requiring emergency surgery), DEATH, SIDS, pneumonia, bleeding from low platelet counts, and hives. This vaccine contains monkey kidney cells, fetal cow blood, Polysorbate 80, and pig virus contaminants.
Polio: Polio doesn’t exist in the US, so in all reality my child is not in need of any protection this may offer. The vaccine can cause allergic reactions, anaphylactic shock, lymphadenopathy, convulsions, and other mild reactions. This shot contains baby cow blood serum, human proteins, Glutamate, formaldehyde, 2-phenoxyethanol, and monkey kidney cells.
MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella): Severe cases of these diseases are so extremely rare that the risk is basically 0 for my child. Measles is not common, at 300 cases in the US per year (all ages of people) and complications are uncommon. Mumps is just as rare, and severe complications are almost nonexistent before puberty. Rubella does not cause severe illness in infants and children. There are only 20 cases per year. This is a live virus, so the vaccinated can spread Rubella following the shot. Known reactions include: Measles infection, aseptic Meningitis, arthritis, pancreatitis, pneumonia, severe eye inflammation that can permanently affect vision, nerve deafness in the ear, Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, panniculitis, vasculitis, pneumonia, pneumonitis (nonbacterial lung inflammation), and neurological reactions like brain swelling, GBS, ataxia (balance problems with difficulty walking), multiple nerve inflammation and dysfunction. This vaccine contains cow fetus serum, chick embryo proteins, DNA and protein fragments from human fetal cells, and Glutamate.
Varicella (Chickenpox): Chickenpox is not common, is treatable, and severe complications occur in less than 1% of cases. In my child’s first 12 years of life, their chance of having a severe case is 1 in 25,000. Adverse reactions to this vaccine include: chickenpox-like rash, pneomonitis (severe lung inflammation that can require intensive care), bleeding problems, neurological reactions, stroke, encephalitis, spinal cord inflammation and dysfunction, GBS, seizures, facial nerve paralysis, meningitis, pnemonia, Stevens-Johnson Syndrome, bacterial skin and tissue infections, and more. This vaccine contains Gelatin, which is against my religion to consume, as well as MSG, DNA and protein from human cells, cow fetus serum, and animal cells. This vaccine sheds the Chickenpox virus in the vaccinated for 6 weeks.
Hep A: Hepatitis A is harmless to young children and preventative measures can be taken if they are exposed. Severe cases are extremely rare, and virtually all cases happen in teens and young adults. The risk in these ages is about 1 in 25,000 in teen and adult years of life. Adverse reactions to the shot include: Hepatitis, seizures, bleeding problems, GBS, encephalitis, difficulties with walking and balance, multiple sclerosis, severe anaphylactic allergic reactions, jaundice, fainting, spinal cord inflammation, vasculitis, nerve dysfunction, rashes, and flu-like symptoms.
Influenza (Flu): While the flu may be common, it’s treatable and VERY rarely are there complications from severe cases. There is a wide debate and some evidence that this shot doesn’t even work for children under 2 and the rate of side effects is unusually high, so that alone makes this not worth the potential side effects to me. The nasal mist is a live virus, so those who receive this are contagious with the flu for 6 weeks and are likely have a mild case of the flu after receiving this. Adverse reactions to the flu shot include: tonsillitis, asthma, arthritis, limb paralysis, tremors, difficulty swallowing, febrile seizures, GBS, bleeding from low platelet count, severe allergic reactions, seizures, inflammation of the brain and spinal cord, encephalopathy, dysfunction of nerves in the face, eyes, or arm, fainting, inflammation of blood vessels, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, chest pain, rapid heart rate, eye infection and redness/swelling, and more. There are many different flu vaccinations, so the list of harmful chemicals varies between them and is quite long. These include formaldehyde, MSG, and Mercury or Thimerosal which is incredibly harmful and toxic and has been removed (almost completely) from all other vaccines because of this.
I hope that people will understand that not all parents who choose not to vaccinate their children are quacks who based their decisions off of Google searches, illegitimate sources, biased information, opinions, or conspiracy theories. While there are some people like that, most of us are not. I urge you to seek out peer reviewed investigatice research and consider its source, funding, and the factors that solidify or vindicate it such as amount of test subjects, presence of control groups and size, or factors that were overlooked. This is important in any research, whether it supports or opposes vaccinations. I encourage you to make the decision whether or not to vaccinate each of your children individually and that you with the risks and benefits specific to your child.
