The Vaccine Story

Polio iradication program, India

Ok so going to jump in with both feet on this one.

I had originally just put this study at the bottom under, things I've recently found...but it deserves to be front and centre and in fact my result in me writing another blog on vaccines.  The statistics in this study are mind blowing!  Totally back everything up that I say below...that in fact vaccines did not stop the disease, vaccines in fact caused some diseases to return, and their saftey needs to be put into question immediately!  READ IT-then if you still need convincing come back and read the blog.

This book was just recently released.  It is amazing!!!! Goes into herd immunity and why vaccines don't work.  Also gives some great insight into how to restore our health if we have been vaccinated in the past!  Amazing read!

After reading this blog, please feel free to jump on over to this video.... Dr. Larry Palevsky speaks about everything found in the Myth's section of this blog :o)

New video that was just shared by Dr Palevsky...great info in just a few short slides

Then take a quick walk through the package inserts for all of the current vaccines given to children in Canada and the United States

Anyone who has ever even snuck a peak at my Face book page is well aware of the fact that I am quite anti-vaccine.  What most of you don't know is the why and how I came to really really believe that they are causing us more harm then the good they were originally aimed at.

So here goes.  The backgrounder.  As a mom in my early years of motherhood, I totally believed in vaccinating my kids.  I was one of those people who thought that parents who didn't vaccinate their kids were in effect abusing their kids.  If I knew your child wasn't vaccinated I told my kids to stay away as if your child was carrying the plague and would share it with my child.  Yeppppppers that was me 13+/- years ago.

Then....we took Cassidy in for her 18 month shots.  Those immunizations included the Measles Mumps and Rubella vaccinations, Diphtheria, Pertussis, Polio and Haemophilus B vaccinations.  So 7 different vaccinations in one day.

When she had her other shots, she had some "normal reactions" like a mild fever and fussiness.  This time around it was quite different.  For 2 days straight everything that went in, came right back out within about a 1/2 hour.  On the third morning my mommy instincts said this is just not right, we need to take her to the hospital.  We arrived and were pushed through within a 1/2 of arrival, this was the first sign something really was wrong.

The ER nurse came in and did the initial assessment.  She felt that Cass was dehydrated and went and got us a freezie to try and entice her to eat it.  Cass refused the freezie, the nurse basically told Steph and I that we had to force feed her the freezie.  That didn't go so well.

When the doctor came in about 20 minutes later, he ordered Cass be put on I.V. immediately.  She was so dehydrated that her heart was starting to be effected (I told the nurse that a freezie wasn't going to help that!)

So long story short.  Cass and I spent 3 days in the hospital.  The first day they pumped 4 bags of electrolyte based IV fluids into her.  Along with numerous medications to stop the vomiting, and reduce the fever that she later spiked (104'F)

Throughout this whole ordeal I kept asking the doctors and nurses including my own family doctor if the vaccinations had anything to do with Cassidy's condition.  All of them kept saying, oh no vaccinations are safe, she just got sick.  I didn't believe them!

When we got home Steph and I sat down and decided that Cassidy would no longer receive any of vaccinations from that moment forward, we weren't going to risk her having another reaction.  We also decided to forgo the remainder of Kelsey's as well as the boys.  At the time Tristan and Morgan had already received all of the infant/child based vaccinations.  Mason being 3 had received most of them as well.  Fast forward a couple of years and we thought that given the seriousness of Hepatitis we agreed to have Tristan and Morgan receive their vaccinations as given at school.

Fast forward two more years...and Mason DID NOT receive his Hep B shots.

What happened in those two years from Morgan to Mason.  I became a doula and as a way to give my clients sound knowledge on vaccination prodigals I began to do some serious research on the subject.

This is what I found.......

Please note:  On numerous occasions I have been told "you're just using scare tactics to convince me not to vaccinate my child".  The information that follows is not a scare is the truth based on not just my research but on the research of many many people.  I am including a link to the actual Vaccine makers insert pamphlets.  These pamphlets just like the insert in the Tylenol bottle you buy, include ALL of the data on the vaccine, including ingredients, reactions, administration directions etc.  I only recently encountered these on a fellow birth advocates website.....they tell a tale that not one doctor I am aware of has ever told me or those whom I have talked to about vaccinations, has ever included in the information given about vaccinations.

History of Vaccinations

So let's go back to the beginning.  Why were vaccinations developed in the first place.  Well to do that we'd have to go back to the beginning of time really.  Disease has been a fact of life since history has been recorded.  The bible speaks of many diseases and afflictions.  In the year 900 a Persian physician wrote papers on the differences between measles and smallpox.  Epidemics of smallpox, whooping cough, yellow fever, measles can be traced throughout history both in Europe, Asia and the America's.

As early as 1661 we can see the Chinese medical records speaking of inoculations against smallpox.  These would be the first vaccinations given in history. In the early 1700's slaves coming into America were noted to have scars from smallpox variolation received in Africa.  These early inoculations or variolations were achieved by either inhaling a powder form of pulverized smallpox scabs and or by scratching the skin and purposefully infecting the person with smallpox pus. Both methods induced a controlled version of the disease.  Unfortunately many times this also resulted in full blown versions of the disease depending on the sanitation of the environment.

In the early to mid 1700's many countries began the practice of variolation of smallpox.  This became very popular among the aristocracy at the time.  The practice was criticized quite widely, but began to spread when the advantages became obvious.  The percentage of people inoculated by means of variolation who died was in the 2-3% range in comparison to the 20-30% who died after contracting smallpox naturally.  It was also criticised as it became apparent that the inoculated person was very contagious, and thus spread the disease to his family, friends and neighbours.

In 1738 Charleston SC suffered from a large smallpox epidemic.  At that time many people had been inoculated.  It's believed that the inoculations started the epidemic, however of the 441 people who received the variolation only 4% died, compared to 18% of those who where naturally infected.
In November of 1736, Benjamin Franklin's son died of smallpox, his statement that he wished he had chosen to inoculate coupled with the Charleston outbreak results lead to many people believing in the safety and efficiency of the inoculations.

In 1776 smallpox was used as a weapon of war when a British commander intentionally sent into battle recently variolated soldiers resulting in 5,000 French soldiers contracting the illness.   This incident resulted in the 1777 mandatory inoculation of the continental army under George Washington.

The first major discovery in changing the variolation directly using smallpox, came in 1796 when Dr Edward Jenner used cowpox to inoculate (injected via needle) an 8 year old boy.  Later that year after allowing the young boy a full recovery he variolated him with smallpox, which caused no reaction.  This was the first "vaccination" using a dried vaccine material.  Word quickly spread and 1802 Massachusetts became the first US state to endorse vaccination over variolation for smallpox.

In 1806 then US president Thomas Jefferson advocated vaccines as a way of eradicating smallpox from the world.  In 1813 the first U.S. vaccine agency was established.  In 1820 data was published in regards to the efficiency of the smallpox vaccination.  From 1791-1800 18,447 people died from smallpox, in comparison to 1810-1820 only 7,858 people died of the disease.

During the next hundred and fifty years between 1800-1950, diptheria, rubella, measles, rabies, anthrax, yellow fever, tuberculosis, haemophilus influenzae, whopping cough, polio and cholera were discovered and named during this time line.  Various doctors studied and made a great deal of observations on these disease including their transmission and life cycles.  During this time the production and use of true animal vaccine was used widely throughout Europe and the Americas.  In this timeline the vaccinations were made and used for rabies and cholera.  A vaccine for tuberculosis was also made but had little results.

In 1853 the first Vaccination law was introduced in the England, The U.S followed in 1855 and Germany in 1874.  These laws included the mandatory vaccination of all school aged children, including those in orphanages.

In 1882 the first anti-vaccination group was founded.  Their argument against vaccination, was that diseases were spread because of filth.  In 1898 Britain became the first country to allow vaccination exemptions.  By the end of 1898 over 200,000 exemptions had been requested and approved. Anti-vaccine groups grew in England, the U.S. and other parts of Europe.  A small blow to this movement occurred in 1905 when the U.S. Supreme court upheld the law of mandatory smallpox vaccinations. Courts continued to uphold the mandatory vaccinations for many years in the U.S. there are currently
still states that only allow exemptions for medical reasons.

If you'd like to see more history please feel free to visit the site I used for most of the above history lesson.  They have a great timeline!

Where did it go wrong?

As you can see from the history above, the original vaccines used the actual viruses to initiate an immune response to the disease being vaccinated against.  I think it all started to go wrong when they began to use animal strains of the viruses.  These viruses though able to pass to humans where still animal based.

The next step in the downfall happened when it became a laboratory event.  In 1879 Louis Pasteurs assistant failed to inject a chicken with a fresh culture of the chicken cholera vaccine he was using to record the progression of the disease.  When his assistant returned a month later and went ahead with the injection the chickens only showed mild signs of the disease.  Thus started the research into weakened strains of the virus.

These weakened strains though resulted in weakened reactions which did not give the vaccinated person a good enough immunity against the disease.  The discovery that animals injected with the diphtheria toxin combined with aluminum salts had a better reaction, started the research into adjuvants.

Adjuvants is where the story goes horribly horribly wrong.

What is an adjuvant

In vaccination land an adjuvant carries a couple of uses.  One use is as a preserving agent, the other use is to cause a more intense reaction to the disease vaccinated against.

"An immunological adjuvant is defined as any substance that acts to accelerate, prolong, or enhance specific immune responses when used in combination with specific vaccine antigens.

So in basic english the adjuvant forces our immune system to react faster, longer and harder to work against the disease.

Sure some of you are saying "well isn't that a good thing".  Yes it can be IF the person receiving this has an amazing immune system at the time the vaccine is given.  The issue is that there is no guarantee as to who has that amazing immune system.  This is especially relevant in infants who haven't had the time to build up their immune system.

The next level is the types of adjuvants used.  The most common adjuvants used in vaccines today are Aluminium Hydroxide, Thimerosal and Formalin.  These three products are highly toxic ingredients.

Aluminium Hydroxide is a form of Aluminum.  Aluminum is harmful to all life forms.  It damages all types of tissue. Aluminum is a protoplasmic poison and a deadly, persistent neurotoxin. No living systems use aluminum as part of a biochemical process.  Ironically, the American Academy of Pediatrics admits that Aluminum is now being implicated as interfering with a variety of cellular and metabolic processes in the nervous system and in other tissues. As of today, it is still in vaccines. Aluminum is a known toxin that can cause encephalitis, bone disease and anemia in susceptible people. The kidneys eliminate Aluminum from the body and so people with renal problems are at risk of Aluminum toxicity. 

All infants have reduced renal function and may not be able to effectively excrete excessive Aluminum. Kidney function is low at birth and reaches adult level by 1-2 years of age. The presence of Aluminum in a vaccine can cause small nodules to develop under the skin of some babies. These nodules are usually transient in nature and disappear spontaneously after a few weeks. In rare cases extreme hypersensitivity to Aluminum results in persistent nodules. Early studies also suggested a relationship between Aluminum compounds and an increased incidence of allergic diseases.  Aluminum is less toxic than mercury, arsenic, lead or cadmium, but it appears to be more persistent than most of them. The danger  is one that only manifests itself over long periods of time.

Formalin is used in vaccines to initiate  antibody formation.  In the body, the Formalin coating around the injected material dissolves, releasing all bacterial and viral particles from animal culture sources. |The formalin adjuvant chemicals irritate body tissues and increase the action of accompanying bacteria and viruses, as well as the reaction of the immune system to the foreign protein antigens. 

However it  potentially damages neurological membranes where the myelin sheath has only partially protected the nervous system. This can result in mild to severe neurological damage, leading to learning disabilities and other nervous system disorders, or death, especially upon subsequent injections, since body has already been sensitized, promoting allergic reactions of increasingly severe nature.

Formalin is a derivative of formaldehyde. Formalin is a mixture of 37-40 percent formaldehyde, water, and usually 10 percent methanol. It is often used as a working solution for tissue fixation, or as a preservative holding solution for fixed tissues or organ specimens in pathological laboratories.   It is also used to inactivate bacterial products for toxoid vaccines. It will also kill unwanted viruses that might be found in the culture as well as serve as an embalming agent. 

Formaldehyde is a neurotoxin and carcinogen. It effects the nervous system and is known to cause cancer. It may cause insomnia, coughing, headaches, nausea, nosebleeds, and skin rashes. It is commonly known to embalm corpses. It has been said that there is no safe level of formaldehyde to be ingested into the body.

Thimerosal is a Mercury compound. Thimerosal is also known as ethyl Mercury. Mercury is a known neuro-toxin. It can cross the placenta and blood brain barrier then, concentrate in the blood and brain. Mercury is a known carcinogens and there is no “safe amounts” allowed in the human body. The U.S. Public Health Service and the American Academy of Pediatrics found that some children could be exposed to cumulative levels of Mercury over the first six months of life that exceed federal guidelines. 

By age two, American children have received 237 micrograms of Mercury through vaccines. This far exceeds the EPA’s current safe level of 1/10th of 1 microgram per kilogram a day. Thirty-five micrograms will kill a rabbit. This amount would be equivalent to injecting a 100lb adult with 40 vaccines in one day.

Hepatitis B has 12 MCG of Mercury = 30x safe level 
DTaP and HiB 50 MCG of Mercury =60x safe level
Hepatitis B and Polio 62.5 MCG = 78x safe level

 Thimerosal is fifty times more toxic than plain Mercury.

Additives to Vaccines Can Include:

Vaccines contain toxic chemicals such as formaldehyde, mercury, lead, antifreeze, RNA/DNA from animal tissues and aborted fetal tissues and other foreign proteins in the form of live, attenuated or dead viruses and bacteri...a. In many cases the vaccine additives are far more toxic than the viral component.

• acetone (solvent used in fingernail polish remover)
• aluminum hydroxide
• aluminum phosphate (toxic)
• ammonium sulfate
• amphotericin B
• animal tissues: pig blood, horse blood, rabbit brain,
• dog kidney, monkey kidney
• chick embryo, chicken egg, duck egg
• calf (bovine) serum
• betapropiolactone
• fetal bovine serum
• formaldehyde
• formalin
• gelatin
• glycerol
• human diploid cells (originating from human aborted fetal tissue)
• hydrolized gelatin
• monosodium glutamate (MSG)
• neomycin (antibiotic)
• neomycin sulfate
• phenol red indicator
• phenoxyethanol (antifreeze)
• potassium diphosphate
• potassium monophosphate
• polymyxin B
• polysorbate 20
• polysorbate 80
• porcine (pig) pancreatic hydrolysate of casein
• residual MRC5 proteins
• sorbitol
• sucrose
• streptomycin (antibiotic)
• thimerosal (mercury)
• tri(n)butylphosphate (neurotoxin)
• VERO cells, a continuous line of monkey kidney cells
• washed sheep red blood cells

Soooo.....what can I top all that info with.....

The rest of the story.....


Do Vaccines Actually Stop Disease?

The governmental types have been teaching us that polio and smallpox epidemics went away because of the instituted vaccinations that began in the 1950's (after WWII).  As well the US feels that other diseases such as measles, mumps, pertussis etc have been brought under control or eliminated as well.

However statistics and studies show differently.  An article from 2000 in a Pediatric Journal shows that prior to World War II a large majority of infectious diseases (diphtheria, tetanus, polio, measles, TB, scarlet fever, pertussis, influenza) were all significantly being reduced prior to WWII--BEFORE antibiotics and vaccinations were even thought of in the treatment of these diseases.

These diseases were being brought under control with the implementation of public health knowledge including:

  • Access to clean water
  • Safer living conditions
  • Improved in home and public sanitation
  • Improved knowledge of nutrition

The following statistics lend light to the fact that vaccinations do not in fact eliminate these diseases and in fact can cause more outbreaks:
  • According to the British Association for the Advancement of Science, childhood diseases decreased 90% between 1850 and 1940, paralleling improved sanitation and hygienic practices, well before mandatory vaccination programs. 
  • Infectious disease deaths in the U.S. and England declined steadily by an average of about 80% during this century (measles mortality declined over 97%) prior to vaccinations.
  • In Great Britain, the polio epidemics peaked in 1950, and had declined 82% by the time the vaccine was introduced there in 1956.
  • Measles outbreaks have occurred in schools with vaccination rates over 98 % in all parts of the U.S. including areas that had reported no cases of measles for years. As measles immunization rates rise to high levels measles becomes a disease seen only in vaccinated persons. An outbreak of measles occurred in a school where 100 % of the children had been vaccinated. 
  • Measles mortality rates had declined by 97 % in England before measles vaccination was instituted
  • In 1986 there were 1300 cases of pertussis in Kansas and 90 % of these cases occurred in children who had been adequately vaccinated. 
  • Pertussis remains endemic in the Netherlands where for more than 20 years 96 % of children have received 3 pertussis shots by age 12 months.
  • After institution of diphtheria vaccination in England and Wales in 1894 the number of deaths from diphtheria rose by 20 % in the subsequent 15 years. 
  • Germany had compulsory vaccination in 1939. The rate of diphtheria spiraled to 150,000 cases that year whereas, Norway which did not have compulsory vaccination, had only 50 cases of diphtheria the same year.
  • All cases of polio since 1979 had been caused by the polio vaccine with no known cases of polio from a wild strain since 1979. 
  • Japan experienced yearly increases in small pox following the introduction of compulsory vaccines in 1872. By 1892, there were 29,979 deaths, and all had been vaccinated.
  • In the early 1900's the Philippines experienced their worst smallpox epidemic ever after 8 million people received 24.5 million vaccine doses; the death rate quadrupled as a result.
  • In 1989, the country of Oman experienced a widespread polio outbreak six months after achieving complete vaccination
  • In the U.S. in 1986, 90% of 1300 pertussis cases in Kansas were "adequately vaccinated."
  • 72% of pertussis cases in the 1993 Chicago outbreak were fully up to date with their vaccinations


From the stats above, we can see that MYTH #2 has already been dispelled but....

Why Do Vaccines Fail to Protect Against Diseases?

What we need to first understand when talking about vaccines is the hugely significant difference between natural acquired immunity and vaccination acquired immunity.
When we are born, we naturally begin develop an immunity to the millions and even trillions of microorganisms that breathe in, eat, and touch. Our immune systems first line of defence is our skin, then our airways, the lining of our intestines, all of these defence systems work actively to protect our bodies bacteria around us.
From these different levels of our immune system we receive information, the immune system constantly sends out signals to all other parts of the immune system, and creates an immune response, memory, and antibodies to bacteria and diseases we come into contact with daily.
When you inject materials into your body, you are bypassing that crucial first step called the primary line of defense.  We need that the full inflammatory response to create real immunity. Prior to the introduction of measles and mumps vaccines children got measles and mumps and in the great majority of cases these diseases were benign. Vaccines "trick" the body so it does not mount a complete inflammatory response to the injected virus.
By directly injecting a vaccine we are just creating an antibody. This antibody will and does NOT impart long-term immunity because it does not create the kind of memory that occurs when you breathe it in, eat it, or are exposed through the skin, and then go through the course of the natural disease.
Naturally acquired immunity created by coming into contact with a bacteria signals the entire immune system to respond and repel the invading virus. A natural immune system response creates antibodies that confer life long immunity against that invading virus and prepares our body to respond promptly to an infection by the same virus in the future.
In, in contrast,  vaccination results in the persisting of live virus or other foreign antigens within the cells of the body, a situation that may provoke auto-immune reactions as the body attempts to destroy its own infected cells.

Numerous vaccines given over a short period of time to an immature immune system deplete the thymus gland (the primary gland involved in immune reactions) of irreplaceable immature immune cells. Each of these cells could have multiplied and developed into an army of valuable cells to combat infection and growth of abnormal cells. When these immune cells have been used up, permanent immunity may not appear. The Arthur Research Foundation in Tucson, Arizona estimates that up to 60 % of our immune system may be exhausted by multiple mass vaccines (36 are now required for children). Only 10 % of immune cells are permanently lost when a child is permitted to develop natural immunity from disease.

Compelling evidence is available that the development of the immune system after contracting the usual childhood diseases matures and renders it capable to fight infection and malignant cells in the future.

But most importantly and ironically when we vaccinate we are jumping to the conclusion that our children have not already been exposed to the virus at some point, and we are also making the assumption that exposure automatically leads to infection.

Exposure does not necessarily lead to infection. A lot of it has to do with the overall status of your immune system.  We all come in to contact with millions of bacteria a day, but we aren't constantly in a state of illness!


Internationally all countries have a governmental body that collects adverse reactions to vaccinations on a daily basis.  It's hard to find statistics for these events in Canada without having to dig very deep into Health Stat reports.  But I found several from the FDA and CDC in the USA as well as internationally.

Here are just a few thoughts on the "safety" of vaccines:

  • Every new parent needs to be aware of this fact, individual vaccines have been tested for "safety", however the entire vaccination schedule has NOT, and neither have the other vaccines that are administered in groups of up to 14 at the same time.
  • The current U.S. and Canadian immunization schedule calls for children to get 48 doses of 14 vaccines by the time they’re just 6 years old. By age 18, federal public health officials say they should have gotten a total of 69 doses of 16 vaccines from day of birth to age 18.
  • One vaccine injected into a 13-pound, 2-month-old infant is equivalent to 10 doses of the same in a 130-pound adult. 
  • Would any adult concede to being injected with 360 doses of vaccines within a couple of years’ span; equal to one injection every other day for two years?
  • The live virus against measles and mumps may produce such side effects as encephalitis (brain damage).
  • The steady escalation in the number of vaccines administered has been followed by an identical rise in the incidence of auto-immune diseases (rheumatoid arthritis, subacute lupus erythematosus, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis, asthma) seen in children. 
  • In 1983,  children received 10 vaccinations before attending school and the autism incidence was 1 in 10,000. Today they are receiving 24 vaccines before 1 year and 36 by the time they attend school and the autism rate is now 1 in 150 births.
  • The MMR vaccine contains live measles viruses and recent studies have shown that immune suppression after vaccination with this virus suppresses immunity in a profound way that last as long as six months.
  • A large study from Australia showed that the risk of developing encephalitis from the pertussis vaccine was 5 times greater than the risk of developing encephalitis by contacting pertussis by natural methods.
  • In the past 10 years, the number of autistic children has risen from between 200 and 500 percent in every state in the U.S. This sharp rise in autism followed the introduction of measles, mumps and rubella vaccine in 1975.
  • In the United States the number of compulsory vaccine injections has increased from 10 to 36 in the last 25 years. During this period, there has been a simultaneous increase in the number of children suffering learning disabilities and attention deficit disorder. 
  • An expert at the 1997 International Vaccine Conference related that a person who takes 5 or more annual flu vaccine shots has increased the likelihood of developing Alzheimer's Disease by a factor of 10 over the person who has had 2 or fewer flu shots.  This fact is due to the presence of aluminum and mercury adjuvants in the flu vaccines.
  • Cancer was a very rare illness in the 1890's. This evidence about immune system injury from vaccinating affords a plausible explanation for Dr. Clarke's finding that only vaccinated individuals got cancer. Some radical adverse change in health occurred in the early 1900s to permit cancer to explode and vaccinating appears to be the reason.
  • Both national and international studies have shown vaccination to be a cause of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). One study found the peak incidence of SIDS occurred at the ages of 2 and 4 months in the U.S., precisely when the first two routine immunizations are given, while another found a clear pattern extending three weeks after immunization. Another study found that 3,000 children die within 4 days of vaccination each year in the U.S.  Another researcher's studies led to the conclusion that half of SIDS cases--that would be 2500 to 5000 infant deaths in the U.S. each year--are caused by vaccines.
  • In the mid 70's Japan raised their vaccination age from 2 months to 2 years; their incidence of SIDS dropped dramatically.
  • The U.S. Federal Government's National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) has paid out over $724.4 million to parents of vaccine  injured and killed children, in taxpayer dollars. The NVICP has received over 5000 petitions since 1988, including over 700 for vaccine-related deaths, and there are still over 2800 total death and injury cases pending that may take years to resolve.
What Are Adverse Reactions?

I remember with each vaccination that my kids did receive, I was given the line by the doctor to expect fussiness, mild fever or just "not feeling ok", type symptoms.  These I was told were TOTALLY NORMAL reactions to the vaccinations!  I was lied to-as are each and everyone of you when you hear this line.

ANY reaction is classified as an ADVERSE reaction to a vaccination and is REPORTABLE by the administering physician and or attending physician if the vaccine recipient is seen for medical care.

Here is the Toronto Health Unit's pamphlet on Adverse Reactions.

And I quote!
What is an Adverse Reaction?
An adverse reaction, also known as an adverse event following immunization, is ANY reaction that occurs after receiving an immunization and is believed to be due to the immunization.
What are the common symptoms of adverse reactions to immunizations?
Most symptoms are mild such as redness, swelling, itching or pain where the injection was given.  Some people may get a fever, feel drowsy or nauseous.  Life-threatening or severe reactions are rare, occurring in 1 in 10,000 to 1 million doses given.
How long do reactions appear after immunization?
Most reactions occur within minutes to a few days of receiving the vaccine. Live vaccines, such as MMR and chickenpox may have reactions 1-4 weeks following immunization. 

Each and everyone of my children have had a reportable adverse reaction to EVERY vaccination they have ever received!

The problem is in getting your doctor to report the reaction.  However in Canada (and Internationally) we as parents can report these reactions ourselves.

But my child has had no reactions to their what's the worry....

The main issue with vaccinations really is the long term effect that they have on our health as we age, and as we get subsequent boosters and adult flu vaccines.  

There is also compelling evidence that vaccines themselves can damage the immune system of immature animals, leading to a higher incidence of autoimmunity and abnormal brain development. Mercury, even in small concentrations, is also known to induce autoimmunity in a high percentage of those exposed.

The immune system is a very complex system, which at birth is incompletely formed. This means, and has been confirmed in animal and human studies, that immune reactions to vaccinations differ at different ages, so that small babies have a different reaction than adults. This has been shown with the hepatitis B vaccine now given to newborns.  
The rate of maturation of the immune system also differs considerably among babies and children, meaning we cannot say what effect will occur in all children. 
The human being also has an unusual brain development in that there is a prolonged period of maturation and development that continues to occur years after birth. The most rapid brain development occurs during the last trimester of intrauterine life and two years after birth.  It is the areas regulating higher brain functions, such as emotions, emotional control, thinking, complex memory and language function that is last to develop. 
All of that can be greatly effected by adding toxins to the immature immune system.  These toxins can stay within the brain for years.  With repeated immunizations for boosters and adult flu vaccines we continue to add to this toxic build up.
The adjuvants used in vaccines are intentionally highly inflammatory so as to provoke a more active immune response to the weakened pathogen. The fact that American children are the most vaccinated in the world at such an early age, when their brains are setting up shop, runs the high risk that vaccinations will "train" nerves to become more hyper-active to future inflammatory stress of any kind.
This inflammation can result in life long health issues and activate autoimmune disorders.  Studies have shown that the number of autoimmune diseases has increased over the past 30 years, with asthma, type 1 diabetes and eczema rates increasing over two-fold.
The most significant long term effect has been seen in Alzheimer's patients.  There has been a 1000% increase in Alzheimer's since the institution of childhood vaccines.  As well early onset of the disease continues to occur with people as young as 40 starting to show symptoms.
A childhood vaccine has life long effects.

Most childhood infectious diseases have few serious consequences linked to them in our present societies health world.   Statistics for pertussis during 1992-94 indicate a 99.8% recovery rate. In fact, when hundreds of pertussis cases occurred in Ohio and Chicago in the fall 1993 outbreak, an infectious disease expert from Cincinnati Children's Hospital said, "The disease was very mild, no one died, and no one went to the intensive care unit."

The vast majority of the time, childhood infectious diseases are mild and short term. They build natural  lifelong immunity, whereas vaccine-induced immunity is only temporary. In fact, the temporary nature of vaccine immunity can create a more dangerous situation in a child's future. For example, the new chicken pox vaccine has an effectiveness estimated at 6 - 10 years. If effective, it will postpone the child's vulnerability until adulthood, when death from the disease is 20 times more likely. Some health care professionals are concerned that the virus from the chicken pox vaccine may reactivate later in life in the form of herpes zoster (shingles) or other immune system disorders.

About half of measles cases in the late 1980's resurgence were in adolescents and adults, most of whom were vaccinated as children, and the recommended booster shots may provide protection for less than 6 months. 

Not only are most infectious diseases rarely dangerous, but they can actually play a vital role in the development of a strong, healthy immune system. Persons who have not had measles have a higher incidence of certain skin diseases, degenerative diseases of bone and cartilage, and certain tumors, while absence of mumps has been linked to higher risks of ovarian cancer.


First off, given the information in myth #4 maybe we shouldn't be completely preventing these diseases.

But secondly there are many ways to prevent them.  Proper hygiene and sanitary conditions have historically been shown to lower the incidences of these diseases.

Building a strong immune system is the first step to having a healthy human.  Historically, homeopathy has been more effective than "mainstream" medicine in treating and preventing disease. In a U.S. cholera outbreak in 1849, mainstream medicine saw a 48-60% death rate, while homeopathic hospitals had a documented death rate of only 3%.

Similar statistics still hold true for cholera today. Recent epidemiological studies show homeopathic remedies as equaling or surpassing standard vaccinations in preventing disease. There are reports in which populations that were treated homeopathically after exposure had a 100% success rate--none of the treated caught the disease.

There are homeopathic kits available for disease prevention.  Homeopathic remedies can also be taken only during times of increased risk (outbreaks, traveling, etc.), and have proven highly effective in such instances. And since these remedies have no toxic components, they have no side effects. In addition, homeopathy has been effective in reversing some of the disability caused by vaccine reactions, as well as many other chronic conditions with which allopathic medicine has had little effect. 


This is the biggest myth of all!!!!

It is a parent's CHOICE to vaccinate their child.  

There are 3 pathways to exemption:

Medical exemption: Epilepsy, severe allergies, and siblings' previous adverse reactions are but a few of the many conditions in child or family history which may increase the chances of an adverse reaction, and thus qualify for a medical exemption;

Religious Exemption:  Depending on your religion vaccinating your child is or is not an acceptable practice.

Reasons of Conscience:  Due to the controversy surrounding vaccination, parents may use this exemption of opt of vaccinating their child.

Depending on the country you live in, depends on the exemptions allowed.  The above 3 exemptions are available in Canada and 50 States in the U.S. 

Here is a link to the provincial affidavits that needs to be signed and filed with the Public Health Unit in Canada.  It's a quick form to fill out.  Most provinces require you to have it Commissioned.  If you go into your local Ontario Government building (where you get health cards renewed etc.) they have commissioners on staff and will do it free of charge.

If you are in the U.S. I would love to include this links, however each state has their own laws and I would have to include them for each....sorry :o(  I'd be glad to help you find it if you can't. 


Vaccines are an unnatural exposure to illness.   

There is no proof that vaccines work and they are never studied for safety before release. My opinion is that there is overwhelming evidence that vaccines are dangerous and the only reason for their existence is to increase profits of pharmaceutical firms.

In the December 1994 Medical Post, Canadian author of the best-seller Medical Mafia, Guylaine Lanctot, M.D. stated, "The medical authorities keep lying. Vaccination has been a disaster on the immune system. It actually causes a lot of illnesses. We are actually changing our genetic code through vaccination."

Since the implementation of mass vaccination there has actually been a Vaccine Induced Epidemic
  • 1 in 6 children with specific learning disabilities.
  • 12-15% children with attention deficit disorder.
  • 1 in 87 with autism spectrum – a 1700% increase over ten years.
  • 1% sudden infant death
  • 40 deaths and 15,000 substantive adverse Gardasil reactions
  • 1 in 15 over 65 with dementia; 1 in 8 over 85
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Seizure disorders
  • “West” syndrome
  • Global developmental delay
  • 1 in 450 with type 1 diabetes
  • 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will develop cancer over a lifetime.
  • Gulf war syndrome affecting and disabling 250,000 troops and 42,000 deaths.
  • 1,000% increase in alzheimers
The more vaccines are studied, the more apparent it becomes that proper vaccine studies are lacking. There is a major difference between natural acquired immunity and vaccine-induced immunity. Obtaining natural immunity has far greater benefits, but this fact seems to be completely overlooked in North American society considering it's recommended that U.S. and Canadian babies receive 24-26 doses of vaccines before age 1 (which, incidentally, is twice as many vaccinations as are given to babies in Sweden and Japan).

A Journal of Virology study shows, the children who remain unvaccinated actually built up more and stronger antibodies against a wider variety of virus strains than those children who received vaccines.
Vaccines DO NOT impart long-term immunity because they don't create the kind of immune system reaction and subsequent memory that happens when you go through the process of a natural immune response. Natural exposure does not always result in an infection, but can and usually does result in a immune response that builds antibodies—it is possible to obtain natural immunity without actually getting sick, if your immune system is functioning well. In fact, vaccines do NOT strengthen the healthy functioning of the immune system, but actually weaken it and will continue to weaken it for the rest of your life.
So.......short but sweet answer DON'T GET YOUR CHILDREN VACCINATED!


As I see things I will add them.

Thanks to an Isagenix Buddy for posting this

Contains amazing graphs showing the natural decline of many disesases BEFORE vaccines where introduced!  Including a very eye opening one on TB!!!

The Measles:  Not worth the vaccine or the hype.  I feel the same about the chicken pox
