  • Childhood Vaccinations: Questions All Parents Should Ask. I’d like to thank you for coming this evening, afternoon etc. One of the most important health decisions facing parents today is whether or not to have their child vaccinated. This decision should be based on facts rather than coercion or pressure. We therefore ask you to keep an open mind to the information we’re going to present.
  • ACIP: Advisory Council on Immunization Practices
  • We want to do all we can to have healthy children who will live long, happy and fruitful lives. We certainly do not wish to do anything that would interfere with that process. Our goal as is yours, is to do what’s best for our children. The picture here subtly shows a mother giving her child natural immunity. Your introduction is very important. It is essential that you connect with your audience and let them know you understand their concerns, that this is a difficult subject, etc. Don’t forget the most important aspects of connecting with your audience: how you look (grooming, clothing), how you stand and hold yourself (are you cold and distant or warm and engaging?) and how you sound (do you appear confident or hesitant?). How you look, sound and act are as important (some would say more even important) than what you say in getting your message across. This is a very important subject but remember one thing above all – nothing replaces practice and experience. Giving your first lecture before a mirror and a recording device and listening to it is great feedback. Of course, nothing beats a critical (but caring) audience.
  • There are vaccine exemptions in every state. Unfortunately most health department officials, school officials and medical offices don’t know the law and try to intimidate or coerce parents into vaccinating their children. They almost never discuss adverse reactions, telling the parents that the vaccines are perfectly safe or the only reaction may be a sore arm, slight fever or fussiness. That is untrue, but in their defense, have been taught that vaccines are very safe and reactions are exceeding rare. Also they are usually untrained to recognize vaccine damage and therefore are unable to report it. Please check out the above organizations. The Foundation for Health Choice, www.foundationforhealthchoice.com is currently fighting for healthcare freedom to change laws to permit everyone to have the freedom to “just say no” to all drugs.

  • Many parents are refusing to vaccinate their children. They do so for a number of reasons. Some of the most common are…. You may wish to elaborate on each or simply read them that they consider the vaccines more dangerous than the disease. In fact, t here are hundreds of studies and many books documenting dozens of chronic immunological and neurological conditions children have gotten from shots. It may surprise you that most pediatricians and parents are completely unaware of this. Another reason is that they prefer natural rather than artificial immunity. Natural immunity lasts a lifetime. Artificial immunity – vaccination - does not. They have a vaccine-injured child (this is, sadly a growing number, far larger than most people realize.) Or some other health reason why their child should not be vaccinated. And some have religious or philosophical objections to vaccination. Most people want to be part of the crowd and fit in; they don’t want to stand out as an oddball. When you tell them that a growing number of parents are questioning and rejecting vaccination you are telling them they are not alone; they have a lot of good company, growing company. This eases their anxiety. The reasons presented here are those that parents may be able to relate to in whole or in part. You may have additional reasons; feel free to present them. I feel it very important to make your introduction personal so I recommend discussing your own feelings about vaccination, your family decision and your personal exploration on this topic. It’s good to mention chiropractic school, philosophy, health care and related topics. You might wish to ask audience members questions such as: “I’d like to know why you are interested in coming to this talk. Who here hasn’t vaccinated their children? Who has? Who is on the fence? Who is preparing to face this issue?,” etc. I have added this to my talks, you can tailor it to your life: “Since this is such a personal subject, on a personal note, I’ll tell you what got me interested in this subject: When our son Seth was born the question of vaccinations hit home. Although I was philosophically opposed to vaccination, in the back of my mind I was wondering, ‘Am I really doing the right thing by not vaccinating? Will my son be somehow unprotected? Is it worth bucking the school system? Family pressure. Is it worth dealing with my mother-in-law?’ “ So I began studying and researching this issue. By the time our daughter Shayna was born a few years later there was no doubt she’d remain non-vaccinated. Amongst all our siblings and cousins, my wife and I have the healthiest children in the family with none of the chronic health problems such as allergies, asthma, digestive problems, skin problems, hearing, vision, learning/behavioral disorders and other conditions that are so common today in vaccinated children. We’ve seen this in other families as well, not just our own.”
  • For example, the late Dr. Robert Mendelsohn was one of the most well known pediatricians in the US. (You may wish to hold up his books). At first he gave shots just like other pediatricians, but gradually realized they were dangerous and ineffective and grew to oppose them. As he said (read slide) But it’s not only individual MDs and chiropractors… He favored giving parents information so they could make informed decisions: “What I advocate is that parents have access to the same controversies that are going on inside the medical journals.” Letting people know that MDs also oppose vaccination puts them more at ease.
  • “ Now medical groups are publicly opposing vaccine mandates, vaccine safety and effectiveness!” This is more significant than a lone chiropractor or MD’s statements. It lets parents know that this is a growing movement of lay people and professionals. Notice that in this slide we are first mentioning the adverse effects of vaccination.
  • In 1921 Johnny Gruelle’s 8-year-old daughter was vaccinated in school without her parent’s permission. Between the months she became ill from the vaccination and her death her body was completely limp – like a rag doll. It was this sick, vaccine-injured child that inspired Gruelle to create Raggedy Ann. What does Raggedy Ann have to do with vaccination? Take a look. Vaccination opposition has been around a long time. (slide) This vaccine story touches upon a bit of Americana. It is a very powerful story and I recommend you read it in full to the audience. Now they know the rest of the story. They’ll never look at Raggedy Ann the same way again. References: 1. Flynn, Barbara, Letter to State Epidemiologist of New Jersey. Jan. 10, 2001: p. 2 (quote re: vaccine-injured baby). 2. Tuleja, Tad. The New York Library Book of Popular Americana , Stonesong Press Inc. 1994; 35. 3. Hall, Patricia. Johnny Gruelle: Creator of Raggedy Ann and Andy. 1993; 87-92.
  • (Read slide) Isn’t this the most basic question of all? Shouldn’t any discussion about vaccinations ask whether vaccines actually make our children healthier?
  • It’s not just asthma and allergies that vaccinated kids get. Dr. Robert Mendelsohn said this…. (read slide)
  • This is the most important question we can ask. The justification for vaccination, in spite of all the damage it is known to cause, is that the damage is miniscule: “one in a million.” Whenever vaccination criticism surfaces, the media will interview some health department official or MD who will repeat the mantra: ‘Sure vaccines have some slight chance of causing damage, but (repeat after me) the benefits far outweigh the risks.’ The only problem with that statement is that it has never been proven.
  • (read slide) This is incredible. We are being forced to inject chemicals into our children and have no idea how many children can be hurt by it. Here is the proof…
  • (Read slide) Even though by law MDs must report vaccine injuries to the government’s vaccine adverse event reporting system (VAERS), only one in ten vaccine-injured children is ever reported according to the FDA. This government statistic may be conservative, the actual amount of underreporting may be far greater. Kessler D. JAMA , 1993; 269 (No.21): 2785. Only about 1% of serious events are reported to the FDA.
  • At an Institute of Medicine conference in Washington, DC. a representative of Connaught labs said this: (read quote above). “Only one in 50 damaged children was ever reported. http://www.nap.edu/books/0309048958/html/R1.html http://www.vaccinationnews.com/Adverse_Reactions/VAERS/credible_estimates.htm
  • Here’s another study. (read study). One in 500!!! And even with all this underreporting the rotavirus vaccine was so dangerous it was pulled from the market. Children were hospitalized and even died. How many children were really hurt or killed? We may never know. Congressional hearings on Vaccine Injury Compensation included the following exchange between Congressman Henry A. Waxman and Martin H. Smith, M.D., president of the American Academy of Pediatrics: Mr. Waxman. “In your opinion there is an accurate reporting of reactions to vaccines?” Dr. Smith. “Not at the present time.” Waxman asked the following to Dr. Edward N. Brandt, Assistant Secretary for Health in the Department of Health and Human Services: Mr. Waxman. “ I have been hearing that physicians don't even know a reaction when one occurs. That they assume that maybe it is from some other cause and are unaware of the fact that there can be a reaction...to a pertussis vaccine. Is that a fair statement?” Dr. Brandt. “Well, certainly there have been a number of people who have pointed that out.”
  • This is an example of an actual VAERS report. (Read slide)
  • In the early 1980s pharmaceutical companies were settling so many lawsuits (out of court – records sealed) from vaccine-injured children and their families that they threatened Congress that if they didn’t have protection from liability they were going to stop making vaccines. Congress then passed laws protecting the vaccine companies from liability and created the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. Extra fees were added to each vaccine to pay the damages for vaccine-injured children. Over a billion dollars has been paid, even though most parents do not know this system exists and most requests are rejected by Justice Department lawyers. Further, the government only compensates for a limited number of severe injuries and only if they’ve occurred a few hours after a shot. It is a very bad, broken system and its reform is being discussed in Congress and fought by the vaccine lobby.
  • (Read slide). These are what’s reported. What are the real numbers? God only knows. Is it ten or 50 or 500 the numbers above? No one knows and no one in the FDA is making any real effort to find out.
  • Prior to the existence of the Vaccine Program, civil lawsuits against vaccine manufacturers abounded. When vaccine manufacturers threatened to stop making vaccines due to the crippling costs of litigation, the nation’s health programs were also threatened and a crisis ensued. Congress responded by establishing the Vaccine Program in 1988 to ensure the availability of existing vaccines and to encourage the development of new ones. Congress accomplished this by prohibiting lawsuits against vaccine manufacturers and by requiring that people claiming vaccine injuries fi rst present their claims in the Vaccine Program. While Congress preserved the rights of claimants to fi le civil actions if the Vaccine Program failed to resolve their claims, Congress painstakingly designed the Program to minimize this likelihood. It designed a “no fault,” generous Program. §§ 15(a)(1-4). The Vaccine Program was designed to be “less adversarial, expeditious, and informal [with]. . .fl exible and informal standards of [the] admissibility of evidence $0.75/vaccine Example: $2.25 for MMR; $0.75 for IPV
  • (Read slide) Premature, low birth weight or ill babies are not permitted in the test group. If a test child has a bad reaction, they aren’t revaccinated and are removed from the study. However, in real life, what really happens? MDs vaccinate all children, sick and well, high and low birth weight, full term and premature, with predispositions for allergies, or neurological disease and other conditions. One example of sloppy science: the hepatitis B vaccine was declared safe to give to newsborns and premature babies but was only tested on older babies and children. There are however, some studies that do in fact compared vaccinated to non-vaccinated children….
  • (Read slide) Note: Mention that HiB stands for haemophilus influenza B vaccine, DPT = diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis and OPV = oral polio vaccine. ) I know it sounds crazy but they don’t compare vaccinated with non-vaccinated kids; they compare kids vaccinated with an approved vaccine and kids vaccinated with an experimental vaccine. If both groups of children have a similar amount of neurological disorders, seizures, shock and deaths then the experimental vaccine is approved, after all, it’s no worse than what’s already been approved. This is just one example, out of many, of the sloppy, weird so-called science of vaccination research. Another problem is – this research was done on Navajo babies. Would there be more or less damage in babies of English, Irish, Italian, Jewish, German, French, African, Polish, Russian or other ancestry? We don’t know. We do know, for example, that Italian and Jewish babies have more autism, believed caused by vaccination. And there’s one last problem – this is not independent research - the people doing this research work for the drug companies. This work should be done by independent researchers. “ The science we need that has not been done: Long-term studies using non-vaccinated control groups, so we can look to see if chronic diseases such as autism, childhood diabetes, Crohn’s disease, attention deficit disorder, childhood arthritis and other conditions show up more in vaccinated children as research today shows. Before-and-after studies that test children before and after immunization, to better assess the impact on the body. We especially need studies conducted by researchers who do not receive monetary support from the companies that produce the vaccines, as is the case today. “ Doug Collins, Washington Free Press , January 23, 2003 ”Most of the studies are designed in a way that will never detect many types of potential damage. In fact, the federal Institute of Medicine’s protocol for verifying causality of vaccine damage consists of comparing health problems of recently vaccinated children to health problems in background control groups of already vaccinated children (not comparisons to non-vaccinated subjects). Because the test group and the control group are both vaccinated, such tests will show only immediate effects of the vaccination, and are of course unable to detect any long-term or widespread damage in the vaccinated population, because any such damage would become a "normal" background parameter of the control group.” See more junk science expose at http://www.vaccinationnews.com/Out_of_Control/2003/Sept_9/OOC1.htm
  • How many children are really hurt? Dr. Harris Coulter, the great medical historian, gives this estimate… (read quote). That’s one in 5 or 6! Dr. Coulter’s statement doesn’t include other forms of vaccine damage such as asthma, allergies, immune system problems, etc. The actual number of children damaged by vaccines may be one in two or greater. We are creating a generation of vaccine-injured children.
  • One of the most powerful (and frightening) statements ever made regarding vaccination is this one by Dr. Coulter. (Read slide) It is impossible to biologically stress a population and have an all-or-nothing response, i.e. mild or no reaction or severe reaction and death. Rather, the damage (in this case vaccine damage) will take a bell curve approach, that is, some people will be mildly hurt, and some severely hurt or killed but the vast majority of those damaged will fall somewhere in the middle between those two extremes. They may be the ones with chronic illness, slight IQ loss that isn’t considered a problem, but they aren’t as intelligent, or able to connect. They may be emotionally distant, with just a mild form of damage. This may become the majority of Americans. Not quite right, but not bad enough to be hospitalized or institutionalized – our new definition of normal!
  • Hospitalization rate (%) versus the number of vaccine doses among infants, Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), 1990–2010.
  • This “educational material” downplays the adverse effects and exaggerates the benefits. If the research is faulty then these statements can’t be trusted. If at risk children are not included in the research, and those that are in the research that have a bad rxn are removed, the outcomes will look better than reality
  • Unlike the 1994 review which was mandated by congress, the 2011 made no recommendation. But it did have interesting findings, particularly that 85%... These vaccines are administered to healthy newborns, babies and children. Certainly they should be more adequately studied? Despite all this, headlines this year include ““IOM Finds Childhood Vaccine Schedule Safe - As It Always Has Been”” http://www.forbes.com/sites/stevensalzberg/2013/01/28/iom-finds-childhood-vaccine-schedule-safe-as-it-always-has-been/
  • (Read slide). That means people with high antibody counts may get sick while people with low antibody counts may not get sick. For example: Crone NE, Reder AT. Severe tetanus in immunized patients with high anti-tetanus titers. Neurology 1992;42:761-764. Article abstract: Severe (grade III) tetanus occurred in three immunized patients who had high serum levels of anti-tetanus antibody. The disease was fatal in one patient. One patient had been hyperimmunized to produce commercial tetanus immune globulin. Two patients had received immunizations one year before presentation.
  • (Read slide). Some say that when children are vaccinated the disease is milder; there’s less rash, discomfort and fever. However, that may not be a good thing, it may mean that the child is unable to externalize the poisons as well.
  • (Read slide) Many studies such as these are reported in the literature. You may wish to discuss all the following papers or just go over them quickly. Outbreaks have occurred in 100% vaccinated populations. Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. US Govt. 12/29/89/38(S-9):1-18.
  • Look at this: (Read slide) Want to increase the chances your child will get pertussis – vaccinate him or her.
  • There’s more pertussis now than before vaccination started and increased deaths in infants. Some vaccine! Why do they still give it? Doctors refuse to admit mistakes. The rate of pertussis was declining consistently until 1978 when the DPT vaccine was mandated for school entry in 41 states. The decline immediately slowed, then stopped and began to rise again, and it has been rising ever since. This is comparing epidemic peaks with other epidemic peaks and inter-epidemic troughs with other inter-epidemic troughs, which is the only kind of comparison that reasonably can be done.
  • There are more examples of this in the “bonus” slides.
  • Mass vaccination is promoted because of the concept of herd immunity (read slide). But as you can see, how can herd immunity work if epidemics have occurred in 90 to 100% vaccinated populations?
  • A serious problem with vaccination is that it interferes with transplacental immunity. (read slide). When a girl is vaccinated she does not develop natural immunity and years later, when she gets pregnant she is not able to give her unborn child as much protection through the placenta so her newborn may be born vulnerable to measles, whooping cough and other diseases at birth. Among newborns these diseases can be fatal. (next slide) Reduced passive measles immunity in infants of mothers who have not been exposed to measles outbreaks. Ohsaki M, Tsutsumi H, Takeuchi R, Kuniya Y, Chiba S. Scand J Infect Dis. 1999;31(1):17-19. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=PubMed&list_uids=10381212&dopt=Abstract
  • Because of interference in transplacental immunity we’re seeing headlines like this… (read slide) . And in spite of all the vaccinations, pertussis returns on a cyclical basis. You can’t fool mother nature. However there is some good news. When Sweden stopped pertussis vaccinations, the disease all but disappeared in infants, adolescents and adults and returned to young children, where it should be. That’s why they’re called childhood diseases, you get them in childhood, not in infancy and not in adulthood. What can you do if you were vaccinated as a young girl and now are pregnant? Breastfeed. Breast feeding offers a wide variety of natural protections. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, babies should be breastfed for a minimum of one year and a maximum of – when the baby decides. Average age of weaning in the world is about 4 ½ years. To further promote natural health all children should have healthcare that promotes natural immunity, should be fed natural, healthy, immune-system-promoting foods and – very importantly – feel loved and cared for.
  • Apart from lack of protection, the vaccines cause a lot of sickness and disease. This is from a survey in the UK conducted by a law firm engaged in a class-action suit representing thousands of families of children injured by the measles shot after a government promoted measles campaign. Keep in mind that these conditions have been associated with other childhood vaccinations too. (read slide)
  • Some diseases were unknown before vaccination. (read slide)
  • Another useless vaccine is the hepatitis B vaccine. Hepatitis B is a disease usually found in prostitutes and IV drug users. Why do they give the shot to babies? This condition is practically unknown in US children; and even so almost all children who get this condition recover completely. (read slide). Dr. Orient is Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons. She spoke at a subcommittee on Criminal Justice, Drug Policy, and Human Resources of the Committee on Government Reform US House of Representatives. June 14, 1999.
  • Additional notes: With the decline in the capsular form of Hib, there has been an increase in the non-capsular form and also an increase in bacterial meningitis as a whole - mostly meningococcal and pneumococcal. Its reached the point where today in Australia there are more cases of bacterial meningitis annually than before the Hib vaccine was used. Dr. J. Bart Classen, an immunologist at Classen Immunotherapies, published data in the British Medical Journal ( BMJ. 1999;319:1133) supporting a causal relationship between the hemophilus vaccine and the development of insulin dependent diabetes. The vaccine has been incriminated in causing over 58 cases of insulin dependent diabetes per 100,000 children immunized in Finland. Dr. Classen told the FDA at a recent meeting that the 7 valent pneumococcal vaccine may be 7 times as toxic as the hemophilus vaccine, possibly causing an estimated 400 to 700 children to develop insulin dependent diabetes/100,000 children immunized. These cases of diabetes may not occur until 3.5 to 10 years following immunization. Press release: Classen Immunotherapies, Inc., 6517 Montrose Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21212 U.S.A., Tel: 410-377-4549, Fax: 410-377-8526 Classen@vaccines.net, http://vaccines.net A reduction in Hib meningitis is not the same as a reduction in meningitis. It is merely a reduction in those cases of meningitis in which Hib is found. But there are no reports of a reduction in total meningitis in children. In addition to the 98 percent decline in hib in children ages four years or younger, there was a shift in the age groups under four that were most affected with Hib invasive disease. Before Hib conjugate vaccine availability and use, children between six and 17 months of age were affected most commonly. During 1994 and 1995, however, the age dropped to five months or younger (The Epidemiology of Haemophilus influenzae Invasive Disease in the US, 1994-1995: Near Disappearance of a Vaccine- Preventable Childhood Disease, " Journal of Emerging Infectious Disease , April 1998).
  • (read slide) Again we ask the question: ‘are vaccinated children healthier?’ or are we just trying to kill bugs while harming our children? According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, Prevnar is one of the most reactogenic vaccines causing ER visits, seizures, diabetes and SIDS. Technical Report: Prevention of Pneumococcal Infections, Including the Use of Pneumococcal Conjugate and Polysaccharide Vaccines and Antibiotic Prophylaxis (RE9960) American Academy of Pediatrics, Gary D. Overturf, MD, and the Committee on Infectious Diseases (last visited on 9/14/2000) http://www.aap.org/policy/re9960t.html Pneumoccocal 7-valent Conjugate Vaccine (Diphtheria CRM197 Protein) Package Insert (last visited on 9/13/2000) http://www.pneumo.com/vaccine/PI.html According to the 1994 Red Book Report of the Committee on Infectious Diseases published by the American Academy of Pediatrics, children who are at risk of pneumococcal infections are those with specific predisposing factors. The Redbook states: (Pneumococcal Infections) are more likely to occur when predisposing conditions exist, including immunoglobulin deficiency, Hodgkin’s disease, congenital or acquired immunodeficiency (including HIV), nephrotic syndrome, some viral upper respiratory tract infections, splenic dysfunction, splenectomy and organ transplantation.“ (1994 Red Book Report of the Committee on Infectious Diseases (23 rd Ed.) American Academy of Pediatrics. 1994; 371.) Most healthy children do not have these risk factors. Dr. J. Bart Classen told the FDA that Prevnar "may be seven times as toxic as the hemophilus vaccine, possibly causing an estimated 400 to 700 children to develop insulin dependent diabetes per 100,000 children immunized. These cases of diabetes may not occur until 3.5 to 10 years following immunization.” (New`Tuskegee-Like Experiment' Planned with Pneumococcal Pneumonia Vaccine, Reported by Classen Immunotherapies (last visited on 9/18/2000) http://vaccines.net/pneumoco.htm) For more prevnar info go to: http://www.whale.to/v/prevnar2.html No carcinogenic, mutagenic, fertility long-term studies done. http://www.whale.to/v/prevnar2.html
  • The chicken pox shot was not produced for health reasons but for economic reasons - so that parents would not have to miss work taking care of a sick child. This is the first time such a reason for vaccination was promoted. It is extremely rare for a child to die from chicken pox. A review of some of the records of such deaths shows the children received suppressive medical care (anti-fever drugs, steroids etc.).  The chicken pox vaccine may result in significantly increased risk of shingles, an extremely painful, often difficult to treat, sometimes fatal condition among adults. Voilá, a shingles vaccine!  Note: In order to prevent shingles adults appear to need repeated exposure to the virus. 
  • (Read slide) There are between 50 and 130 cases of tetanus each year in the US irrespective of vaccination status. It appears to be most dangerous in the elderly. For example, of the approximately 130 cases/year from 1998-2000 in the US, not one fatality was in individuals under 30 years of age. Almost all fatalities were in intravenous drug users or diabetics, all over 30 years old. So why inject children with this? Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report . 7/98;47(5-2):13. http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/ss5203a1.htm#tab1 Severe and fatal reactions to the tetanus vaccine include Guillain-Barre syndrome, brachial neuritis, demyelinating disease, arthritis, joint inflammation, anaphylactic shock, asthma, allergy and death. Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report 47 (July 1998, 5-2):13. pub by the CDC http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/ss5203a1.htm#tab1
  • Meningitis too is associated with vaccination. (Read slide) For years it was noticed that meningitis outbreaks would occur in military bases, among the freshly vaccinated recruits. Many members of the military have become seriously ill from vaccinations. Gulf War Syndrome is one example.
  • (Read title on slide) Congressman Dan Burton, who is investigating vaccine safety said this… (Read slide) This is one of the most important slides I can show you. We don’t know if a vaccine given to your child today may cause a disease in 5, 10, 20 or more months or years! How long do they observe children given new, experimental vaccines? What should be done? A controlled study: You take two large groups of people, match them by age and other factors, vaccinate one group and don't vaccinate the other. Then compare incidence of disease over a period of several years. That's a long-term study. Short-term studies don't give us any information about vaccination efficacy. How many long-term controlled studies are there for all vaccines for all diseases in the world since the beginning of science? Zero!
  • Four days! This is from the package insert for the Hepatitis B vaccine! After observing the vaccinated kids for 4 days, the vaccine was reported to have no serious long-term side effects.
  • (Read slide) What is crib death? The baby is placed in the crib and the parents come back a few minutes later and it’s cold. Dead. Sometimes they blame the parent and call it Shaken Baby Syndrome and the grieving parent who just lost a child is arrested and imprisoned. There is growing evidence that most crib deaths are vaccine deaths.
  • One of the most powerful vaccine-crib death correlations is what occurred in Japan. (Read slide) Until 1975 the Japanese followed the American schedule of giving vaccines at 2, 4, 6 months, etc. After 37 babies died in one prefecture in Japan the law was changed making it illegal to vaccinate under the age of two. Crib death and infantile seizures virtually disappeared. Japan went from 17 th in infant mortality to Number 1 – the best infant mortality in the world. However now they had a new crop of neurologically damaged 2-year- olds. From Childhood Vaccination – Questions all parents should ask (p. 22) : When Japan moved the vaccination age to two years in 1975 crib death and infantile convulsions virtually disappeared (Cherry et al. Pediatrics Supplement. 1988;973). Japan then recorded the lowest incidence of infant mortality in the world. (American babies receive their first shot at two months and America has a distressingly high infant mortality rate – nearly twenty countries are better than the US.).
  • Since 1988 they relaxed the vaccination rules and doctors may vaccinate a child under the age of two. Crib deaths dramatically increased.
  • Dr. Robert Mendelsohn said it well… (read slide). About 61,900 baby deaths were classified as SIDS between 1983 and 1994 by the CDC. By definition, SIDS is something that you don't know the cause for.
  • We’ve heard it said, ‘Before childhood vaccinations, thousands of children died every year from measles and whooping cough.’ And they’ll give you a statistic from 1910, 1920 or 1930 to prove it. It’s true, thousands of children died from these diseases in 1910, 1920 and 1930, but is vaccination the reason why these diseases are no longer the scourge they once were? The quote from Dr. Ivan Illich, the world famous sociologist was based on extensive analysis of health data.” (read slide) What made deaths from childhood disease fall? Less crowding, better nutrition, clean, running water, indoor plumbing and an overall higher standard of living were responsible.
  • “ The following graphs are from Vaccines, Are They Really Safe and Effective? by Neil Miller, used by permission of the author. You’ll see that deaths from childhood diseases were falling dramatically for decades before vaccination was introduced.”
  • Measles death rate had decreased by 98% before the vaccine was introduced.
  • The pertussis death rate had already declined by 79% before the vaccine was introduced in 1935. In 1935 there were no compulsory immunization laws and it didn’t get used much until the 1950s at which time the death rate had declined by about 99%.
  • (Read title) It’s been predicted that we’d have massive epidemics and lots of deaths. (Read slide) This is a h ypothetical cost/benefit analysis from the CDC and Harvard School of Public Health. The authors predicted doom and gloom. However they ignored what had actually occurred when pertussis vaccination stopped or decreased in other countries. See next slide.
  • (Read slide) However MDs did diagnose more whooping cough. They did that because they were told to look for more whooping cough because vaccination rates were dropping. So instead of diagnosing bronchitis, a cold or some other condition, they called it whooping cough and suddenly there was an epidemic and they said, “See, we told you so.” However the real measure is the death rate and after parents stopped pertussis vaccination the death rate from whooping cough in the UK was the lowest in recorded history.” “ Neither in England and Wales, nor in West Germany has the decline in pertussis immunization been associated with increases in pertussis associated mortality. In fact both countries reported more fatal cases in 1970 when the immunization rate was relatively high, than during the later half of the decade, when the immunization rates had fallen.” Trollfors B. and Rabo E., 1981. Whooping cough in adults. British Medical Journal. 1981; 696-697. There was one instance where DPT vaccination rates dropped and the death rate from pertussis was reported to increase. This occurred in Japan. (Noble, GR et al. Acellular and whole cell pertussis vaccines in Japan: report of a visit by US scientists. JAMA. 1987; 257:1351-1356) where 41 deaths from pertussis were recorded in 1979. Why would the Japanese experience be opposite that of 3 others countries? One explanation is that pertussis peaks every 3-4 years whether or not there is vaccination and the lowering of vaccination just happened to coincide with a peak pertussis cycle in Japan. Also, as vaccination rates increased in Japan the amount of pertussis increased as well (from 1976 to 1979) and then dramatically dropped (before the new acellular vaccine was used – 1981). Why did that happen? One possible explanation is manipulation of the figures (not unusual). Also, the Japanese did not stop vaccinating for long, but instead raised the age of vaccination to two years because of so many deaths (37) and injuries reported from the pertussis vaccine. Of course the true measure of science is reproducibility and the Japanese reports must be analyzed in that light.
  • This is from a letter in Mothering Magazine. (read slide) Parents have often noted that MDs will not diagnose a disease if the child is vaccinated against it. Gordon Stewart, MD, the renown Scottish epidemiologist observed: “In some practices whooping cough is never notified in a vaccinated child. ( A Shot in the Dark p. 165). Dr. Robert Mendelsohn put it this way: “Whenever vaccination rates drop, every time a baby clears his throat the MD will diagnose pertussis.” Why don’t MDs report injuries? A number of reasons: 1. MDs don’t want to acknowledge vaccine injuries; it is human nature to deny you did anything wrong. 2. MDs are not taught about vaccine damage in medical schools. They have no idea vaccines can be dangerous. 3. They don’t know what to look for or acknowledge as a vaccine injury. 4. They believe vaccines are very safe and any untoward reactions are coincidental. 5. MDs can lose hospital privileges and risk professional isolation and censure if they publicly question vaccination. 6. Pediatricians make a large percentage of their income from “well baby visits” (a euphemism for vaccination visits, well babies don’t need to go to the MD) and they therefore have a conflict of interest in promoting vaccines.
  • (Read slide) This is a very important chart and it helps illustrate one of the major hurtles in the vaccine debate: many of the people who tell us how many kids are hurt and how many kids get diseases are MDs who have a financial interest in vaccinations. All they have to do is report that a child has measles, whopping cough, rubella, chicken pox, etc. without laboratory conformation and it becomes part of official statistics. However as this report from England shows, they checked the reported cases using laboratory confirmation. In some cases the MDS were over 99% wrong in their diagnosis of measles (read an example from above) . As you can see only a tiny fraction of the children who the MDs reported as having the measles actually, really had measles. Are we “protecting” children from diseases that no one is getting? There are diseases that look like measles, pertussis and other childhood diseases. Doctors usually don’t confirm their diagnosis with a lab test - that is time consuming and expensive. In a sense we have the fox guarding the hen house.”
  • “ People often ask, ‘But what about polio?” (Read slide) “Polio was a dangerous disease and an epidemic and did disappear. But there is no proof that the vaccine had anything to do with it’s disappearance.”
  • Polio was disappearing on its own. It disappeared in Europe even though the vaccine was not so extensively used.
  • However the number of cases of polio peaked immediately after the vaccine came out and then continued its downward slide.
  • After the polio shot came on the market, if a person had polio-like symptoms AND had the polio shot he/she was diagnosed as having meningitis (after all they couldn’t have polio if they got the shot). People who had polio-like symptoms and didn’t have the polio shot were diagnosed with polio. They rarely did lab confirmation. (Read slide). Today, much of what was once diagnosed as polio is aseptic meningitis and other conditions. In Congressional hearings it was revealed that statistics were "cooked" to "prove" that the mass inoculation campaign was working. Cases formerly reported as polio were instead called meningitis. Statistics for the incidence of polio decreased, but those for meningitis soared. (Intensive Immunization Programs. Hearings before the Committee on Interstate & Foreign Commerce, House of Representatives, 87th Congress, 2nd Session on H.R. 10541, Washington, DC.)
  • People ask, what about smallpox? Smallpox was disappearing on its own. Vaccination was not effective so countries were instituting the traditional method of dealing with infections: quarantine. Smallpox would have disappeared much sooner if there had been no smallpox vaccination. In studying historical documents smallpox grew from small outbreaks to major epidemics in England, Scotland, Ireland, Germany, Italy, Japan and other countries after vaccination began. In places where smallpox vaccination stopped or was not used, epidemics did not occur.” (Leicester, England and Australia are two examples).
  • This is a partial list. Parents who are very careful about their child not eating junk food with artificial colors and flavors would be shocked to find out what is injected into their child’s body. Aluminum and mercury in foods for example, is a serious issue and not to be taken lightly but an injected substance is far more dangerous than an ingested substance. Injected substances bypass the immune defenses (skin and mucus membranes etc.) and have direct access to internal organs.

  • (Read slide) The mercury used in vaccines is ethylmercury. However, the toxicity research that has been done is on methylmercury, not ethylmercury. It’s worth noting that mercury moves readily across the placenta into fetal tissue. Regardless of the chemical form administrated fetal tissues attain concentrations of mercury at least equal to those of the mother. (Doull J., Klassen CD and Amdur MD (Eds.). Casarett and Doull's Toxicology . (3 rd Ed). New York: Macmillan Co. Inc. 1986; 606.) At an October 2001 Institute of Medicine conference, Thomas Verstraeten of the Centers for Disease Control (who had since left and is working for GalaxoSmithKlein) stated that it is "biologically plausible" that thimerosal causes autism. This study was not released to the public, it was repressed. About a year later it was discovered and released. From Consumer Reports (not known for balanced vaccination reporting): “Even minuscule doses of mercury can impair the cognitive development of babies and young children. Just this year, the FDA warned pregnant and nursing women and very young children to avoid certain mercury-containing fish. Yet until last year, the same agency permitted the use of childhood vaccines containing mercury in quantities that many, including Consumers Union, consider unsafe.” At the time, three vaccines routinely given to newborns and infants, hepatitis B, Hib, and DTP, contained thimerosal. Note: The mother’s mercury fillings can also poison children in-utero. Is thimerosal still in vaccines (2003)? “ A simple review of the 2003 PDR (Physicians Desk Reference) indicates that thimerosal is present at 25 mcg. per dose (ie in full strength) in multidose vials of DTaP vaccine manufactured by Aventis Pasteur, and all influenza vaccines (influenza vaccine is now recommended for most children). Additionally, the PDR indicates that Merck makes a pediatric hepatitis B vaccine that contains 12.5 mcg per dose. The package inserts of these vaccines also indicate that they still contain the original amounts of thimerosal. In addition, a sequential review of previous PDRs indicates that in 2002 and 2001 there were even more vaccines listed as containing thimerosal.” Geier MR and Geier D. Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons. 2003;8(1); 6-11.

  • (Read slide) Do childhood diseases, and acute (sudden) diseases in general, serve a purpose? The Hygienic (Empirical or Vitalistic) school, which dates back thousands of years, has always looked upon symptoms as the body’s way of detoxifying and cleansing.
  • Hippocrates, known as “The father of Medicine” said (Read slide). He was a Greek physician born in 460 BC on the island of Cos, Greece. He became known as the founder of medicine and was regarded as the greatest physician of his time. He based his medical practice on observations and on the study of the human body. Hippocrates held the belief that the body must be treated as a whole and not just a series of parts. He accurately described disease symptoms and was the first physician to accurately describe the symptoms of pneumonia, as well as epilepsy in children. He believed in the natural healing process of rest, a good diet, fresh air and cleanliness. He noted that there were individual differences in the severity of disease symptoms and that some individuals were better able to cope with their disease and illness than others. He was also the first physician that held the belief that thoughts ideas, and feelings come from the brain and not the heart as others of his time believed. He founded a medical school on the island of Cos, Greece and began teaching his ideas. He soon developed an Oath of Medical Ethics for physicians to follow. This Oath is taken by physicians today as they begin their medical practice. He died in 377 BC.
  • “ Physical, emotional and intellectual growth spurts are often observed after a child has experienced an acute infectious disease. (In India measles is referred to as “Visitation by a goddess.”) Dr. Philip Incao expresses this very well in the following: (Read slide) .” “ Philip Incao, MD writes, lectures and practices anthroposophic medicine. He is presently located in Boulder, Colorado. When patients call him and say, “My child has a fever” he says, “wonderful.” He tells parents to keep the child comfortable and not to give any products with sugar or dairy, and stay away from wheat. Chiropractors would, of course, add a spinal adjustment so the child is unsubluxated and is therefore better able to fight infections and keep their body healthy.”
  • In this study, it was found that children that were permitted to have acute febrile infectious childhood diseases had less cancer as adults. Are we really doing our kids a favor when we vaccinate them? Are we setting them up for cancer in adulthood?” (Read slide)
  • This study from the International Journal of Cancer showed that subjects who reported a history of infectious diseases (cold, flu) had 30% less chance of getting brain tumors.
  • (Read slide) Childhood illnesses protect children from hay fever, asthma and eczema. Are we protecting our children from being sick for a week in exchange for their being sick for the rest of their lives?
  • Half of all Americans have at least one chronic disease; 1/5 th have 2 or more chronic illnesses. Chronic illnesses cause 70% of all deaths. http://www.whale.to/m/illness.html AP Nov 2000. Hoffman C., Rice D, Sung H., Persons with chronic conditions. JAMA. 1996;l 276(18):1473-1479. Is the dramatic increase in chronic illness such as allergies, asthma, arthritis, learning disorders, dyslexia, multiple sclerosis, lupus, skin conditions, diabetes, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, autism, rheumatoid arthritis, seizure disorders, Crohn’s and cancer due to vaccination? “ For hundreds of years natural healers have warned us that symptoms serves a purpose, to expel toxins, to cleanse the body, to externalize disease. When we suppress symptoms such as fever, rash, vomiting, diarrhea, aches and pains with drugs and vaccines we are preventing the body from eliminating toxins. The result appears to be chronic or long-standing disease which we never get rid of – we’re always sick.” (Read slide) (This discussion can be a lecture all by itself, discussing the difference between allopathic [mechanistic] medical thinking and chiropractic [vitalistic] chiropractic thinking.)
  • “ Others have also commented on the vaccine/cancer connection…”
  • This article appeared in the British Journal, The Lancet in 1985. (Read slide) Notice the title: “ Measles virus infection without rash leads to disease in adult life.” Every vaccine is technically an infection. The goal is to infect a child “just a little” to invoke antibodies, but not cause symptoms. However the rash and other symptoms are part of the healing process, the way the body externalizes the infection. Are we keeping a child infected for life is we inject bacteria and viri and other substances but don’t stimulate a healing response?
  • Read slide. The polio virus was grown in monkey kidneys. There was a problem, many viruses live and grow in monkey tissues and not all were filtered out when making the vaccine. The SV40 was the 40 th virus found, and it caused cancer when injected into laboratory animals. Nonetheless it was not removed from the polio vaccine and continued to be sold and wasn’t recalled.”
  • This is from The American Journal of Medicine June 2003. (Read slide)
  • Of particular interest is the alarming rise in childhood cancers. Is vaccination the reason why we have so much cancer in children and adults today? (read slide) Are vaccines tested for their ability to cause cancer before they are put on the market?
  • This chart was created by parents whose baby died of a brain tumor at age 2 ½. A biopsy found SV40 in the tumor. The parents were tested and had no SV40 in their bodies; it came from the vaccine the child received. Read the chart, at least across the first few columns. I just read the first and second and last column.” I don’t expect you to review every line and column here. Just read a few of the remarks in the last column: no studies conducted” over and over again. It’s shocking, we mandate injecting chemicals into our children to protect them from relatively harmless childhood diseases and don’t even know if the chemicals are safe.
  • In this study, women who did not have mumps were more likely to get ovarian cancer. (Read slide)
  • In this study adults with brain cancer were less likely to have had chickenpox. Does getting chickenpox help prevent certain types of brain cancer? (Read slide)
  • Criminals often have neurological disorders. You cannot function properly if your nerves are damaged. (Read slide)
  • As more and more vaccines are administered at younger and younger ages, we see behavioral problems affecting more, and younger children. (Read slide)
  • Vaccines are being implicated as the reason why diabetes is dramatically increasing. The pertussis toxin, which is part of the DPT shot, affects the Islets of Langerhans that make insulin. As Dr. Coulter writes…” (Read slide)
  • (Read slide) Scared yet? The relationship between autism or autism spectrum disorder and vaccines has been noticed by parents for many years, only most doctors refused to listen to the parents. As Mark R. Geier, MD, Ph.D in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons (Vol. 8 No. 3) Fall 2003 writes: “The United States is in the midst of a devastating epidemic of neurodevelopment disorders. From 1992-93 to 2001-02 there was a 714% increase (statistics from US Dept of Ed) See statistics at http://www.jpands.org/ [This epidemic is a] threat…to the very existence of our society.” It is not surprising that our recent article, in which we have shown an epidemiologic link between thimerosal and neurodevelopment disorders, has generated a tremendous controversy. (Geier MR, Geier DL. Thimerosal in childhood vaccines, neurodevelopment disorders and heart disease in the United States. J Am Phys Surg; 2003;8(1):6-11. It seems that any vaccine can cause autism. The MMR shot has been implicated, as has the DPT shot (given at two months of age) and even the Hepatitis B shot (given at birth!) or it could be a combination of shots. Some children may not exhibit autistic symptoms until weeks or months after their shots. I sometimes ask an audience “Anyone here know of any autistic children,?” “Anyone have an autistic child?” If someone raises their hand I ask them if the autism occurred after they received their shots. Note: In the UK now between the ages of 4 and 11 the National Statistics Society reports one in 86 has autism (2002).
  • Here is a study showing how chiropractic helped autistic children.
  • This study shows that it is possible to affect a person’s DNA with injections. (read slide)
  • Dr. Lanctot puts it this way…
  • “ When scientists have objectively looked at vaccine research, their conclusions are often startling. Dr. Bart Classen is a former National Institutes of Health researcher. He says this” (Read slide)
  • Dr. J. Anthony Morris was Chief Control Officer of the FDA. He was fired the day after making this statement. (Read slide) His firing served as a warning to others working for the FDA and other government agencies: if they questioned vaccinations they could look for another job. He fought and get his job back. He later criticized President Ford’s swine flu vaccination program, saying that there was no swine flu coming and the flu vaccine was very dangerous. He was right on both counts, but lost his job again after saying it.
  • Dr. Harris Coulter is marvelous at bursting bubbles, he writes this (read slide) . So much of vaccine “science” is not really science but belief. When you begin reading the journal articles and other studies on which vaccination policy is based you begin to realize that “the Emperor has no clothes.” The entire vaccine edifice is built on belief and poor science.
  • Thank them for coming, be available for any questions afterwards. Send them home with information to read, the handouts included in this kit (the booklet, pads, brochures) and a list of books that are available, etc. Remind them to bring in their children for chiropractic care and natural immunity. This is a great time to discuss your next seminar on natural health – natural childbirth, breastfeeding, organic food, chiropractic care, natural healthcare, mind-body healing, vitalism, etc. Feel free to write me (Dr. Tedd Koren) at tkoren1@aol.com with any questions.
  • I’d like to end the talk with these words by Marcel Proust… (read slide). Vaccinations will one day go the way of bloodletting. Doctors of tomorrow would be shocked that, without any good research showing any benefit and with much research showing harm, we continued using this bizarre 18 th century medical practice of injecting viri, bacteria, toxins and other chemicals into our children well into the 21 st century. Add your closing remarks, i.e. “Don’t follow advice blindly. Question authority, think for yourself, read, learn, don’t do anything unless you are sure the benefits outweigh the risks. Remember, you can’t fool mother nature.”

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, babies should be breastfed for a minimum of one year and a maximum of – when the baby decides. Average age of weaning in the world is about 4 ½ years. To further promote natural health all children should have healthcare that promotes natural immunity, should be fed natural, healthy, immune-system-promoting foods and – very importantly – feel loved and cared for.
  • (Read slide). How can we “Just say no?” to all drugs, including vaccines? Dr. Thomas Szasz, echoing Dr. Robert Mendelsohn, understands that this is not a scientific matter but a religious matter, based on faith and emotion rather than science. “ Using the coercive apparatus of the state to force people to submit to the ministrations of doctors of medicine is persecution in the name of health, exactly as using the coercive apparatus of the state to force people to submit to the ministrations of doctors of divinity was persecution in the name of God.” Thomas Szasz, M.D.
  • No matter where you stand on the issue of vaccination, the right to choose to accept or decline a medical intervention is a fundamental human right. Top health authorities have officially stated that exemptions have played no part in the nation's recent whooping cough outbreaks 90% of Vermont pertussis cases had been vaccinated. There is no pertussis-only vaccine, so this bill attempts to mandate tetanus and diphtheria vaccines as well. A similar amendment to last year's legislation which would have set such a 90% threshold was briefly considered, but soundly rejected. H.114 and H.138 are solutions to problems that do not exist, and they place your right to informed consent, health choice and parental decision making at risk. Although these new bills appear to impact only 475 children, parents want to keep the right to make medical decisions for their children, and an increasing number of teachers feel strongly they should decide for themselves and not have their job held hostage to medical politics.

The results revealed that vaccinesare not free from side effects or adverse events, but most are very rareor very mild such as swelling at the injection site, slight fever andheadache. The IOM concluded that: “... few health problems arecaused by or clearly associated with vaccine. Experts foundevidence of 14 health outcomes --including seizures, inflammation ofthe brain, and fainting -- that can be caused by certain vaccines,although these outcomes occur rarely.”• The IOM report stated: “for the majority ofcases {135 (out of 158) vaccine adverse-eventpairs}, the evidence was inadequate to acceptor reject a causal relationship” … not enoughdata• An absence of data does not mean somethingis safe.
