After seeing corruption first hand behind the scenes of Merck & Co. as a sales rep. for their shockingly dangerous drug Vioxx (which killed tens of thousands of people), former pharmaceutical sales rep Brandy Vaughan was disillusioned with the industry and left to live in Europe for eight years, where she had her son.
When she brought him back to San Francisco at 6 months old and unvaccinated, she was met with criticism and unsettling information about the mandatory vaccination push happening in the state of California.
She said she did not know everything about vaccines at that time, but had done enough research to not trust the pharmaceutical companies behind them. But the doctors who insisted on vaccinating her son did not want to listen.
“…I asked to see a vaccine insert (because caregivers and patients receive two different ones, believe it or not), and the doctor got very upset at me and claimed I didn’t trust him. He stormed out of the room, and the nurse let me know that I wasn’t welcomed back…” she said in a video posted by Larry Cook from StopMandatoryVaccination.com (available at the end of the article).
She said it was a “huge red flag” for her and she dived deeper into researching vaccines, their ingredients, and the safety data, which she found to be “flawed.”
Toxic Ingredients in Childhood Vaccines and Their Health-Damaging Effects
Thimerosal, aluminum and other toxic ingredients found in vaccines can cause serious side ffects, which is why the government has paid out billions in damages since the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act was passed in 1986. They range from headache, fever, and nausea; to allergic reactions, seizures, severe pain, life-threatening severe illness and permanent brain damage.
These toxins are especially dangerous for children with a not yet fully developed immune system.
A full list of ingredients in different types of vaccines is available here.
More information on the dangers of vaccine additives appears each year. Here are just few things that we know:
- Childhood Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) vaccination can cause Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM) – an intense swelling in the brain as it was shown in the court case of Bailey Banks.
- Representative from Florida Bill Posey spoke to the House of Representatives and asked for an official investigation into purposefully omitted study findings that “examined the possibility of a relationship between [the] mumps, measles, rubella vaccine and autism.”
- Children and adults experienced seizures and were paralyzed after the flu shots.
- Extra-strength flu shots developed for seniors mentions dozens of deaths after receiving the shot in its own insert.
The U.S. gives twice or more as many vaccines to children as most developed countries
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the United States recommends the following vaccine schedule:
Birth to 15 months: up to 27 vaccinations (routine and catch-up schedules differ slightly).
18 months to 18 years: 37 on average, can be more if the doctor decides the child needs boosters or follow-ups, two doses of annual flu shots instead of one, or is at increased risk of disease.
That makes an average of 64 vaccinations before the child turns 18.
Immunization schedules for other developed countries have much lower number of vaccinations:
Public Health Agency of Canada recommends an average of 47 vaccinations before the child turns 17.
National Health Service (NHS) in England recommends an average of 27 vaccinations before the age of 18.
In Australia, the Government Department of Health recommends 18 immunizations before the age of 15. Flu shots and a few other vaccines are recommended for at-risk groups only.
United States Kids are Sicker than in Any Other Developed Country
The US has very high rates of childhood diseases comparing to other developed countries.
It actually has the highest infant mortality rates among developed countries: 6.1 per 1,000 live births, comparing to 5.5 in New Zealand, 4.2 in the United Kingdom, and the lowest – 2.3 in Finland and Japan, CBS News Reported based on CDC statistics. The US has also the second highest mortality rate for asthma (ages 5-34).
When it comes to mental health between 2005-2011, 6.8% of children aged 3-17 had an ADHD diagnosis, 3.5% behavioral problems, 3% had anxiety, 2.1% depression, and 1.1% were diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders, according to the CDC.
The neurotoxins in the vaccines have been associated with developing neurological disorders including SIDS and hyperactivity.
In 2011-2012, 17.7% of children 6-11 years of age were obese, and the rates of diabetes in children have increased by 21% between years 2000 and 2009, and as many as 30% of children have allergies today (bovine casein derived from milk found in vaccines have been linked to be one of the causes for the rise of food allergies).
Vaccines Can Be Approved Without Adequate Studies
“The thing about vaccines is that you don’t have to do the same rigorous safety studies as you do for other pharmaceutical drugs because they are classified as a public health measure versus the pharma drug,” Vaughan said.
Looking at a vaccination insert, such as the one by Fluzone, it is apparent that the vaccine has been approved after just two short clinical trials, which did not study the long-term effects. There were no double-blind placebo-based studies done.
The vaccine manufacturers can get away with barely studying the product before taking it to the market, because unlike other drug manufacturers they cannot get sued, according to the NBC News.
