Vaccine risk may be a difficult thing to precisely assess, but undeniably each vaccine includes a significant risk worth considering – and investigating. The citations on this page point to an increasingly grave scenario as we witness an escalation of chronic disease. Even vaccine manufacturers admit that vaccines cannot be made safe, by their very nature.
In this section we question vaccine safety in several ways:
Under reporting is a big problem. Many doctors, understandably, are not willing to admit causation, blame or potential liability and have little incentive to report. Although the federal government’s adverse reactions data are already alarming, even the FDA has confesses that serious reactions to vaccines go unreported by doctors nearly 90% of the time. Some experts estimate that under reporting may be far worse than these figures.
Questionable criteria are too often used in evaluating vaccine “safety.” The practice of biased, skewed science have become commonplace in pharmaceutical risk assessment. For example:
a. Death or weight gain/loss in mice is used to determine human risk — even though animal tests have consistently proven to be inappropriate for human safety assessment. More recently, Vioxx and Celebrex were found to be safe in animal tests.
b. Often, one vaccine is evaluated for adverse effects and compared to another vaccine’s adverse effects, not placebo. It’s not good science.
c. The EPA uses Methylmercury to evaluate the mercury in vaccines, even though it’s ethymercury that goes into thimerosol, the preservative in vaccines.
d. Many “safety studies” only report adverse effect within a limited – and too short – time frame. Six, seven or fourteen days after injection (common) is too soon to cut off criteria for causation. Consequences fourteen days to months after vaccination are well acknowledged by the scientific community.
NO Long Term Safety Studies
Much more commonplace in other pharmaceuticals, these evaluations have never been performed with any vaccine before marketing. Nor is anyone much interested in performing risk assessment after market, even though correlations and millions of personal testimonies point to links with diabetes, SIDS, arthritis, autism, asthma and many other chronic illnesses. This may be hard to believe. We invite you to call the vaccine manufacturers and ask them yourself.
Risk Assessment is Elusive by its Very Nature
Chronic autoimmune, neurological disorders and other sequelae of vaccines are difficult to establish by their very nature. Ask yourself this: if you drank something moderately poisonous and ten days later came down with symptoms, could you prove, definitively, a causal link between the two? This could be more difficult than you might think, especially if there were influential counterforces with every incentive in the world to prove that it was coincidental or untrue.
To the extent that vaccines prevent disease or, more accurately, sensitize us or postpone disease — they trade the scattering of relatively benign infectious disease for a true epidemic of chronic autoimmune and neurologic disease. In the past thirty years, rates of asthma and AD have doubled, diabetes and learning disabilities have tripled. Chronic arthritis affects nearly one in five Americans. Autism has increase more than 300%, or more in some states.
In 2004, scientists reported in the Journal of Virology the emergence of a new virus due to the amalgamation of a flavivirus called Modoc with the yellow fever vaccine virus. There are several examples like this in medical literature. The risk of creating an emerging, pathogenic virus during recombination between vaccine viruses and other viruses is very real, and cannot be ignored.
Perhaps the gravest of concerns is how the cumulative effect of proven, neurotoxic and carcinogenic (cancer-causing) substances within vaccines are having on the long-term health of our children, who are vaccinated ten to twelve time before they’re eighteen months old. Formaldehyde, mercury, aluminum, phenol, and other known poisons are present in most vaccines ingredients.
As more and more vaccines are added to the “recommended” and “mandatory” lists, young parents are being told that their children must be injected with thirty-seven doses of eleven different vaccines before the age of five. These parents have to be asking the obvious questions.
