Thank You Mr. Gadsden

“I want to sell drugs to everyone. I want to sell drugs to healthy people. I want drugs to sell like chewing gum.” With those words former Merck CEO Henry Gadsden established the aim of the entire pharmaceutical industry more than 30 years ago.

Do you get that they don't care if our kids are over vaccinated? Do you get that?

Oh, I get it... do I ever!! When will the MASSES get it?!?!? A friend posted on FB about her child getting 5 vaxes... I wanted to PUKE!! Has she not listened to ANYTHING I have said?!?!? My FB picture is about vax injury awareness month, I talk about vax injury to my siblings... I just don't get THAT!! My email siggy is about vax injury awareness month.. NOBODY can claim they don't know my stance on them... NOBODY I come in contact w/can claim they don't know one person to ask about them. ME, ME, ME!!! In fact someone responded to my siggy in my email... needed a new doctor ;0)... 4 kids saved from future vax damage, but unfortunately it was not soon enough. I share so much of what you blog here... I post it, I forward it, I add it as my siggy... keep up the great work & the fight for your precious son!!

I get it. But it does not seem to matter.I feel powerless. I feel overlooked. It only seems to matter that ~most~ kids seem to be fine. They seem to be fine, but wait until they get a bit older. The group of high achieving young people is smaller and smaller.

Just trying to get things straight... do you people think that vaccines do not work? I once heard Bill Maher say that smallpox and polio would have gone away on their own, and I'm wondering how widespread this theory is.

As a graduate student of biology, much of my research is directly dependent upon vaccines. If you want to find a molecule, you vaccinate a rabbit against it, isolate antibodies from said rabbit specific to your molecule, and then label the antibodies with radiation or fluorescence so that you can find them in a cell extract (or whatever you're doing.)

This is one of the two or three most common tools in the modern biologist's toolkit. One of the big guns. A Nobel Prize-winning technique. If you open up Nature, 90% of the papers you see will refer to a Western Blot; this is a lab technique based 100% on the principle that vaccines work.

Are you aware of this?

They work, but with varying degrees of success, and almost none work as well as they are billed to work.

If I hear one more time that they wiped out disease, well I will just have to put up with it because it is constantly being repeated, even though deaths from most of these diseases were dropping as sanitation, refrigeration and nutrition improved, before the vaccines were invented.


And how well they work depends on the immune system of the individual. Our argument on our vaccine injured children is that they are a part of a subset of children with immune and metabolic abnormalities and susceptibilities, and vaccines do not behave in their bodies the way they "should".

Our kids, post vaccine injury, are tested for titers and some of them show none for some of the things that they have been repeatedly vaccinated for, some kids get one shot and their titers are off the charts.

I have one friend, vaccine injured son, developed autism, had a full schedule of shots, NO TITERS FOR ONE SINGLE DISEASE that he was vaccinated for. She once had a face to face with Paul Offit and asked him to explain how that is possible. Offit had no response except that he should take her son to an immunologist. She replied that her immunologist is the one that ran the tests. Then his "handlers" swept him away.

And the fact that vaccines create antibodies does not mean that they will necessarily prevent someone from manifesting the illness.

MOST of the children in the outbreaks in the last few years, measles/pertussis/etc/ were vaccinated. I constantly hear from moms who say, "but my son got the chicken pox vaccine six months ago... how could he get chicken pox?"

Also the flu shot is a joke. Cochran found that all it does is shorten the duration of the flu.

And whether or not they work is not the issue... it is how safe they are that is at the heart of this debate.

And as there is no (none, zero, zilch, zip, nada) research on what giving DTaP, HIB, Polio, Heb B and Pnumo do to a child when given simultaneously, and after such an administration my son suffered a vaccine encephalopathy for which he was diagnosed with "autism", as is the case in tens of thousands of children, the burden of proof is on you if you want people to use them.

Are you aware of this?

All you are describing is what can be done with vaccines in the lab. What, exactly, does that have to do with vaccines out in the field? In the bodies of human beings? We vary a lot. To put it mildly.

"MOST of the children in the outbreaks in the last few years, measles/pertussis/etc/ were vaccinated."

Define "most".

[August 28, 2008 — Measles is making a comeback in the United States, according to public health authorities, and parents who object to the measles vaccine for religious or other reasons appear to be driving the increase.

From the beginning of January through the end of July 2008, more measles cases were reported in the United States than during the first 7 months of any year since 1996, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported in the August 22 issue of Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR).

Of the 131 measles cases reported to the CDC′s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases this year, 112 were either unvaccinated or had unknown vaccination status.]

You really think that's due to "sanitation, refrigeration and nutrition"? You think the 85% of these patients, the unvaccinated ones, also just happened to be deficient in these areas?

Deaths from measles have fallen 60% since 1999. Has the world changed that much since then, or has it been the global vaccination program?

Do you give your pets rabies shots? Why or why not? Would you prefer your children play with animals that have been vaccinated against rabies or those that have not?

It's one thing to claim that vaccines don't work, never have, never will. It's another to claim that the only thing they reliably do is cause autism. It's a REAL stretch to claim that these unproven notions are somehow linked, but you conflate them quite freely.

If you want to convince the world that smallpox just coincidentally happened to disappear right after the vaccine was developed, YOU must produce the evidence. Science has already made its case with the fact that not one single person on the planet has smallpox, no matter their access to hygiene, refrigeration, and/or nutrition.

There are people who dedicated their lives' work to this. They've saved millions if not billions of lives. I don't see how any rational person can call them evil.

Dude... it is 1 am and I am tired. I have no patience for this grandstanding right now.

I am not sure who you are arguing with, but apparently it is a straw man. Cause most of what you are trying to discredit has never been said here.

How about you actually read the blog before trying to have a fight with someone... because it is clear you have not even looked at what my basic assertions are.

Good night.
