    Forced Vaccinations: Is It Time for Big Brother to Become Your Doctor?
    Written by Rebecca Terrell

    Claiming vaccines are safe and diseases they prevent are killers, government pushes immunization mandates.

    Anti-vaxxer — an ugly word akin to genocidal Nazi or child-sacrificing Aztec. If so labeled, you are guilty as charged, prepared to slaughter children and endanger society for a silly, outdated idea of personal liberty in defiance of established science and basic human rights.

    “This isn’t just a public health crisis. It’s a public sanity one,” writes New York Times opinion columnist Frank Bruni. “The anti-vaccine crowd … aren’t trafficking in anything concrete, mundane and quaint as facts. They’re not really engaged in a debate about medicine. They’re immersed in a world of conspiracies, in the dark shadows where no data can be trusted, nothing is what it seems, and those who buy the party line are pitiable sheep.”

    Recent measles outbreaks across the United States — 555 cases in 20 states confirmed as of April 11 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) — have ignited extreme reactions from government officials. In January, Washington governor Jay Inslee declared a public health emergency citing 31 cases in two counties. In March the top official of Rockland County, New York, banned children unvaccinated against measles from public places for 30 days, warning that parents who ignore the ban could be subject to both fines and jail time.

    A judge subsequently lifted that ban, saying the number of cases did not meet the legal requirement for an emergency declaration. That didn’t stop New York’s Mayor Bill de Blasio, who ordered mandatory vaccinations for certain affected areas of the city, targeting the orthodox Jewish community of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, a neighborhood with a high percentage of unvaccinated families. “We cannot allow this dangerous disease to make a comeback here in New York City,” de Blasio lamented at a press conference. “We have to stop it now.” So he’s slapping a misdemeanor charge and a $1,000 fine on anyone who refuses the measles vaccine, glibly stating: “The faster everyone heeds the order, the faster we can lift it.” In a WCBS news radio interview about a lawsuit against his edict filed by the Hasidic Jewish community days later, de Blasio rebuffed the parents’ concerns and bragged, “We will beat them.”

    Implying that victims are dropping like flies and that measles will soon decimate entire cities without extreme, protective countermeasures, news outlets fail to mention that most cases are not severe. On the contrary, media opportunists feed the flames. The Bloomberg editorial board hopes that these outbreaks “may finally be scaring sense” into parents who believe the “myths” that vaccines may cause “seizures, autism, mercury poisoning or death.” And in a fit of yellow journalism at its finest, a CBS affiliate in Texas featured an alarming picture of a baby supposedly suffering from measles, when in fact the child was injured by the measles vaccine. CBS “decided to use my kid as the poster child for the measles outbreak,” writes mom Dawn Neufeld on her Facebook page. “But the irony … Will doesn’t have measles in this picture; this is the reaction he had to taking the ‘safe’ MMR shot.”

    Nevertheless, the witch hunt is on. Writing for Fatherly Magazine, Patrick Coleman calls for the arrest of “anti-vaxxers spreading measles,” claiming that “there are laws and precedent to prosecute.” He points out that federal law allows forced quarantines of those with certain communicable diseases, and nine states allow fines and criminal prosecution for spreading infectious disease. Certain European countries already fine parents for refusing to have their children immunized.

    Reporters such as these lay blame at the doorstep of parents, but can they rightly assume unvaccinated children always cause outbreaks? A fully vaccinated 22-year-old woman sparked the 2011 measles epidemic in New York. A 1985 epidemic struck a fully immunized school in Corpus Christi, Texas. CDC researchers linked the 2014 spate of Disneyland measles to an outbreak in the Philippines that year, likely brought to the United States by an infected traveler. Some people even get measles from the vaccine, as CNN reported in March of one-year-old Elsie Mendoza. After her first dose of the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine, she spiked a fever, developed a full body rash, and had three visits to urgent care before doctors finally admitted the vaccine was the likely culprit.

    Media also note that the federal government declared measles eliminated from the United States in 2000, giving the impression that anti-vaxxers have ruined our record. In reality, the CDC reported 86 cases nationwide in 2000 and more than 100 the following year. (The agency defines an “outbreak” as three or more infections and “elimination” as “absence of continuous measles transmission for greater than 12 months.” The CDC also blames most outbreaks on infected travelers bringing the virus with them from abroad.) Well more than 100 confirmed U.S. cases are recorded most years since 2008, and in 2014 there were 667. Interestingly, from 2003 until 2015 there were no deaths from measles, but over that same period the federal government’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) linked the deaths of more than 100 children to the measles vaccine, which contains a live virus.

    With that in mind, what are we to think of media insistence that vaccines are effective and harmless? Should we demonize — even fine and jail — parents who opt for natural over artificial immunity for their children?

    Safe and Effective?

    All drugs have side effects, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires manufacturers to list them, along with a host of other disclaimers and clinical trial results, in product packaging literature. Vaccines are no exception.

    Let’s use the popular Merck & Co. MMR II vaccine as an example. “As for any vaccine, vaccination with M-M-R II may not result in protection in 100% of vaccinees,” states the package insert. This disclaimer seems to belie universal insistence of the drug’s effectiveness. How do you explain it?

    “An ‘effective vaccine’ as defined by researchers, is one that leads to the development of antibodies after it has been injected into the bloodstream,” explains Dr. Sherry Tenpenny of NMA Media Press. “It is important to understand that effective and protective in vaccine research are not synonyms.” In other words, vaccines cause the patient to produce antibodies (effective) but cannot guarantee protection from disease (protective). That explains why kids who get their shots still contract infections.

    But what about herd immunity — a dearth of contagious disease resulting when a significantly large portion of a population is immunized? Haven’t measles deaths nose-dived since 1963 when the vaccine was introduced? In reality, that tailspin occurred in the pre-vaccine era. According to U.S. Vital Statistics, until 1920, more than 10 deaths resulted for every 100,000 measles cases, a rate of 0.01 percent. By 1955, the rate had plunged to 0.00003 percent, or 0.03 deaths per 100,000.

    What caused the precipitous decline? By the 1920s, doctors had discovered the efficacy of cod liver oil against viruses such as measles, mumps, and chickenpox. Until the 1960s, moms regularly dosed their reluctant children with the foul-tasting liquid. Since then the practice has given way to vaccines, but the New England Journal of Medicine confirmed in 1990 that vitamin A — a main ingredient in cod liver oil — is essential in measles treatment, finding that patients supplemented with it have fewer and less severe symptoms, recover more quickly, require less hospital time, and have lower mortality. Physicians for Informed Consent explains that most measles-related morbidity and mortality worldwide involve vitamin A deficiency.

    Regarding the safety of vaccines, they are no different from any other FDA-approved medication, all of which carry risks. Again using Merck’s MMR II vaccine as an example, adverse reactions observed in clinical trials include both mild (e.g., fever, headache, dizziness, diarrhea, vomiting) and severe effects (e.g., diabetes mellitus, arthritis, encephalitis, meningitis, pneumonia, and anaphylaxis — an acute, sometimes deadly, allergic reaction).

    The CDC assures us that our country “has the safest, most effective vaccine supply in its history” and that severe reactions are rare, “occurring at a rate of one per million doses for many vaccines.” Yet consider this list compiled by Dr. Jane Orient of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS), a private organization representing thousands of physicians in all specialties nationwide:

    The smallpox vaccine is so dangerous that you can’t get it now, despite the weaponization of smallpox. Rabies vaccine is given only after a suspected exposure or to high-risk persons such as veterinarians. The whole-cell pertussis vaccine was withdrawn from the U.S. market [in the 1990s], a decade later than from the Japanese market, because of reports of severe permanent brain damage.

    We could add to this list products such as the Rotashield rotavirus vaccine, withdrawn only one year after FDA approval because of so many severe reactions in children, including the death of a five-month-old infant. There was also LYMErix, a vaccine for Lyme disease, which lasted less than four years before class-action lawsuits linking it to rheumatoid arthritis forced it off the market.

    This is not to say that no one should be vaccinated. The point is that, despite media insistence that vaccines are safe, they really are no different from any other prescription drug — all of them present risks. But they are different from most other medications because we have no way of knowing how safe or dangerous they are. “There are no rigorous safety studies of sufficient power to rule out” complications, notes Orient. A 2012 review by the medical research organization Cochrane concluded: “The design and reporting of safety outcomes in MMR vaccine studies, both pre- and post-marketing, are largely inadequate.” Regarding vaccines in general, economist Gayle DeLong of Baruch College wrote in the journal Accountability in Research: “No study of the safety of the entire U.S. vaccine schedule has ever been undertaken. That is, the safety of the combination of vaccines is unknown.”

    Manufacturer Immunity

    Vaccine manufacturers have no incentive to research further because the federal government protects them from virtually all liability when their products injure or kill patients. In 1986, Congress established the taxpayer-funded National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). NVICP has since paid out nearly $4.1 billion in claims. Instead of suing the companies that produce and sell these potentially dangerous products in civil court, vaccine-injured victims and their families are forced to petition HHS in a process that disillusioned claimants have discovered to be heavily weighted against them. The non-profit Children’s Health Defense tells the sad tale:

    HHS has turned a basic administrative compensation process into a “highly adversarial, lengthy, expensive, traumatic and unfair imitation of a court trial for vaccine victims and their attorneys,” charges Barbara Loe Fisher of the National Vaccine Information Center, who was instrumental in drafting the original law. She is not alone. Even the program’s former Chief Special Master, Gary Golkiewicz, said the government “altered the game so that it’s clearly in their favor. (The government) has a vested interest in vaccines being good. It doesn’t take a mental giant to see the fundamental unfairness in this.”

    Unfairness is putting it mildly; draconian is more apt. Petitioners have a mere three years to file post-injury, and HHS recognizes only certain possible adverse outcomes listed on its “Vaccine Injury Table,” which has been updated just twice since 1986 when children generally received seven vaccines. (There are 16 recommended by CDC now in a total of 70 doses.) The first update applied to only one vaccine — hepatitis B — and the second involved removal of some previously listed injuries.

    Notably absent from the table is autism, which many physicians link to thimerosal, a mercury preservative used in several vaccines, including MMR. CDC claims no causal link due in part to the study it commissioned in 2000 to evaluate the issue. Records of the research committee’s preliminary discussions relate that the chairman, Dr. Marie McCormick, acknowledged that the CDC “wants us to declare” vaccines safe, and she blatantly admitted, “We are not ever going to come down that [autism] is a true side effect.”

    In fact, no CDC-sponsored research finds a link between vaccines and autism, but the agency is plagued with conflict-of-interest charges in relation to those studies. Highlighting the story of CDC researcher-turned-whistleblower Dr. William Thompson, the 2016 documentary Vaxxed: From Cover-up to Catastrophe exposes conspiracy within the agency to destroy evidence linking autism to the MMR vaccine. Where is the incentive for the CDC to admit a decades-long error? Interestingly, thimerosal content has recently been reduced or eliminated in some vaccines. Based on the number of autism claims filed through December 2011 with NVICP, DeLong estimated they would have cost taxpayers an additional $4.6 billion in payouts.

    Children’s Health Defense (CHD) says 75 percent of NVICP cases are dismissed. HHS calculates a slightly higher number it has compensated — 31 percent of more than 20,000 petitions filed since 1988. It estimates that “for every 1 million doses of vaccine that were distributed, 1 individual was compensated,” but it fails to relate how heavily the cards are stacked in its favor.

    Perhaps a better litmus test is VAERS, the federal Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System. VAERS receives approximately 30,000 reports of vaccine-related adverse events annually, but because it is a passive reporting system, experts estimate as much as 10-fold under-reporting. Based on these statistics, “anywhere from 4,500 to perhaps 45,000 serious vaccine injuries occur every year in the United States,” says CHD, “including brain damage, seizure disorders, chronic arthritis, neurodevelopmental disorders,” and death.

    Yet state governments require parents to have their children vaccinated. Though there is not yet a federal mandate, all 50 states require certain vaccinations for school attendance, with limited options for medical, religious, and philosophical exemptions. In the case of other drugs and medical procedures, patients have the right of full disclosure regarding risks and benefits, and the subsequent right to accept or reject them. In regard to vaccines, patient rights are thrown to the wind, destroying the doctor-patient relationship, allowing government to usurp the physician’s role and effectively practice medicine without a license.

    “Intimately personal medical decisions should not be made by government,” stated Ron Paul, M.D., former U.S. Representative (R-Texas), in a 2011 article entitled Government Vaccines — Bad Policy, Bad Medicine. “Freedom over one’s physical person is the most basic freedom of all…. When we give government the power to make medical decisions for us, we in essence accept that the state owns our bodies.”

    Vested Interests

    What is behind government’s seemingly fanatic obsession? Does the state want to “own your body”? Or could it be a classic case of “follow the money”? Golkiewicz cited government’s “vested interest in vaccines.” Orient also mentioned “enormous conflicts of interest involving lucrative relationships with vaccine purveyors.”

    One example is detailed in a 2000 U.S. House Majority Staff Report, “Conflicts of Interest in Vaccine Policy Making.” It recounts the rise and fall of Rotashield, approved in 1998 against rotavirus and pulled in 1999 after an infant died and many other children suffered severe injury. The chair of the advisory board that approved Rotashield, Dr. Patricia Ferrieri, owned $20,000 of stock in vaccine manufacturer Merck, and was subsequently awarded a federal grant of $135,000 for rotavirus research. Another advisory committee member, Dr. Caroline Hall, worked for the University of Rochester, which had a $9.5 million contract with the federal government for vaccine development. Yet another advisor, Dr. Kathryn Edwards, held numerous government grants and private contracts for vaccine studies, totaling more than $6.8 million from 1996 through 2003. Dr. Mary Estes, also on the advisory committee, worked for Baylor College of Medicine and was the principal investigator for a grant from Merck for rotavirus vaccine development. Her employer was also receiving hundreds of thousands of private and federal grant dollars for vaccine research.

    This is only a partial list. The House report concluded that more than half the individuals responsible for Rotashield approval had financial ties to pharmaceutical companies that were developing different versions of the vaccine. Moreover, it found that these advisory board members routinely obtained waivers from conflict-of-interest rules; those who were not allowed to vote were still given full voice in committee deliberations.

    This is just the case of one vaccine. DeLong found vaccine safety research clouded with conflicts of interest. Though she acknowledged that independent advocacy groups, skeptical of vaccines, are certainly interested in exposing their dangers, “These organizations are not as well-staffed or well-funded as government agencies or vaccine manufacturers.”

    What she reported is troubling: Two-thirds of vaccine safety researchers receive industry support and sponsorship; part of FDA funding comes from fees pharmaceutical companies pay to have their drugs evaluated; working for agencies such as the CDC is often a “stepping stone to employment at a vaccine manufacturer”; since 2005 the pharmaceutical industry has employed “at least three lobbyists for every member of Congress,” many of whom are former government employees; and medical journals rely on advertising from pharmaceutical companies, and their “authors’ ties to vaccine manufacturers are pervasive.”

    Good Vaccines

    Such conflicts of interest are ruining what truly has been one of the greatest breakthroughs in the history of medical science. We can thank smallpox for the advent of vaccination. Prior to the 19th century, smallpox was a major cause of death worldwide and one of the most feared infectious diseases. About one in five victims died; those who survived were often left blind or disfigured. Some tried to combat the disease with variolation — injecting a healthy person with a small amount of pus from an infected patient. People were willing to risk it because the odds of death dropped from 20 to 2 percent. When it worked as hoped, the patient suffered a mild attack but was immune to future infection. In 1796, English doctor Edward Jenner noticed that milkmaids who contracted the benign disease cowpox were resistant to smallpox. He pioneered the revolutionary practice of vaccination, using material from the pustules of infected cows. The practice was hotly contested until smallpox deaths nose-dived wherever vaccination was introduced. Within 50 years it became the accepted norm, and less than 200 years later, in 1979, the World Health Organization announced smallpox effectively eradicated from the globe.

    But when it comes to measles, we’re not dealing with a disease that can decimate populations as did smallpox throughout the world since ancient times. Among measles patients, Orient notes, “Almost all make a full recovery, with robust, life-long immunity.” Moreover, Physicians for Informed Consent recounts on its website that studies suggest a link between naturally acquired measles infection and reduced risk of certain diseases such as cancer, some allergies, and cardiovascular disease.

    Chicken Little

    Even less to be feared is chickenpox, although you wouldn’t know it by recent headlines. Little more than 20 years ago, government downplayed this common childhood malady on two of its popular PBS Kids series: Caillou (the four-year-old’s mother tells him, “They’re just little, itchy spots. Nothing to worry about”) and Arthur (the main character recovers from chickenpox in a few days, enjoying extra attention he gets in the meantime). Now, chickenpox is repackaged as a life-threatening plague. The CDC website strongly warns parents: “Chickenpox can be serious and can lead to severe complications and death, even in healthy children.”

    What changed between then and now? The varicella (chickenpox) vaccine entered the scene in 1995. Prior to that, annual mortality rates were 0.003 percent, and most deaths involved immunocompromised adults. If that presented such a grave public health threat, why did it take so long for anyone to develop a vaccine?

    Reading the CDC website, you’d think the vaccine was completely safe. Dr. Gary Goldman tells a different story. He served as research analyst for the CDC pilot varicella vaccine program in California from 1995 until 2002, when he resigned over the agency’s routine manipulation of data to conceal negative information. Many of those undesirable outcomes are reported through VAERS, however. As of mid-2018, the varicella vaccine has caused nearly 4,000 serious adverse events, including almost 200 deaths, most of whom were children under six. In the first few years after introduction, the manufacturer had to add 17 adverse events to its product labeling, including transmission of the vaccine virus, spinal cord injury, Guillain-Barre syndrome (an autoimmune disorder), and shingles.

    There is also little press about the positive aspects of naturally acquired chickenpox. According to the National Vaccine Information Center, prior to 1995, children usually caught chicken pox by age six, leaving them with long-lasting immunity. (Those who contract it as adults face a higher risk of severe complications, making childhood illness more desirable.) After a young person recovers from natural chickenpox, the virus remains dormant in his body, and every future environmental exposure to the virus boosts his natural immunity by causing him to produce more antibodies, protecting him not only from future outbreaks but also from shingles, which is caused by the same virus. The temporary, artificial immunity of vaccines leaves older children and adults vulnerable to both. And someone who has never had chickenpox before can catch it directly from anyone with shingles, which in adults can be quite serious.

    Nevertheless, mainstream media dutifully plug the vaccine and deliver a requisite Chicken Little performance when naturally acquired chickenpox hits. Last year, it blamed religious vaccination exemptions for 36 cases in a small North Carolina school. “Anti-vaccination stronghold in N.C. hit with state’s worst chickenpox outbreak in 2 decades,” shrieked the Washington Post last November. What happened to those 36 victims? They got over it.

    If media apoplexy were our only worry, we could rest easy and enjoy the show. But does the fact that states are strong-arming parents over this common childhood illness signal the dawn of medical dictatorship? In 2013, New York refused a chickenpox vaccine medical exemption to a kindergartner, despite her doctor’s refusal to immunize her. He said the non-essential live virus vaccine could present a grave danger to the child’s 14-week-old sister, as well as her mother, who has an immunodeficiency disease. The mom told NBC News, “I don’t care if it’s a one in 3 million chance. I am not willing to take the chance with my baby.” Nevertheless, the state education department barred the child from attending school, and the parents were left with no option but homeschool.

    Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin made waves in March when he announced opposition to his state’s mandatory varicella vaccine on a WKCT radio show. He sent media into a tailspin for purposely exposing his nine children to chickenpox at a neighbor’s house. “They got it … were miserable for a few days, and they all turned out fine,” Bevin said. “This is America and the federal government should not be forcing this [vaccine] upon people.”

    But his state government certainly is forcing. Chickenpox drama has engulfed a small Catholic high school in Walton, Kentucky, Assumption Academy. After one diagnosed case at its affiliated elementary school located across the street, the academy’s unvaccinated students were banned from both schools and all athletic events for three weeks by the Northern Kentucky Health Department (NKHD). Unfortunately, the three-week count starts over again each time a child gets sick, regardless of clinical diagnosis. What began in mid-February has extended into late April at last report and could conceivably continue through the school year if more students develop symptoms. As of early April, 33 of the schools’ 240 students had been infected. Many other healthy, unimmunized students are prevented from returning, as the school reported to NKHD that only 18 percent of its students are up to date on vaccinations.

    At least one of them is fighting back. Instead of finishing his basketball season as starting center in the state championship tournament, 18-year-old senior Jerome Kunkel is now embroiled in a legal battle with the state. “It’s not that I’m against all vaccines — just the ones made from aborted fetal cells,” he explains. “That’s against my religion.” (Live virus vaccines are developed in specialized cell cultures so they “forget” how to replicate correctly in normal body cells. Material from chickens, pigs, monkeys, dogs, cows, and even worms and insects can be used. The varicella vaccine is one of several developed using aborted babies.) Kunkel’s parents, Bill and Karen, have filed a religious exemption on these grounds every school year.

    When they met with NKHD to plead Jerome’s case, communicable disease nurse Carolyn Swisshelm minced no words. “We can kick any kid out of that school,” Karen recalls her saying. Swisshelm assumes the right to exclude students with medical or religious exemptions during an outbreak, but Kentucky law doesn’t provide such boundless power to bureaucrats. Jerome’s initial court pleading quotes the state statute on health issues and religious freedom, which prevents government without grave reason from excluding people “motivated by a sincerely held religious belief” from “programs or access to facilities.”

    Nevertheless, NKHD official Zach Raney pulled out his iron fist, warning the Kunkels: “I have the power to shut your school down,” and he did for three days until all non-vaccinated students underwent immunity testing. Jerome’s blood test proved he had no infection but no immunity either, so the health department has marked him a pariah, forcing him to start a GoFundMe page to defray court costs defending himself against the NKHD’s draconian overreach.

    “This isn’t stopping chickenpox from spreading,” Jerome points out. “All of us [students] are still together. We go to church together, and after Sunday masses we usually get together for a pick-up game of basketball. It’s just not logical.”

    Jerome lost his initial hearing in early April to lift the ban preventing him from returning to classes. The student’s lawyer, Chris Wiest, said they plan to appeal, arguing that NKHD’s reaction is overly restrictive. He told The New American, “I believe this case will be judged by a jury and, I believe, they will view the actions of the health department as retaliatory and discriminatory.”

    Where We Are Headed

    Jerome’s uncle, Bernard Kunkel, who works for Governor Bevin, warns of what could be on the horizon. “Children don’t belong to their parents anymore. They belong to the state,” he told The New American. “Before you know it, you’ll have to prove you’ve been vaccinated to get your driver’s license renewed. When does it stop?” He points out that neither Canada nor the U.K. have mandatory immunizations, though both share the same scientific knowledge and access to medicines that we have.

    We’re witnessing government overreaction and overreach on a titanic scale. Diseases such as measles and chickenpox do not present catastrophic public health threats, and public welfare certainly does not require compulsory vaccinations for them. Government is cashing in on manufactured hysteria, stripping patients of their right to informed consent, a central mainstay of modern medicine. Parents should be fully informed about the true risks of both virus and vaccine, allowing them to make decisions with their doctors for their children, free from government interference.

    But there is an unquestionably positive development in the vaccine debate. All the media hype is leading more parents to investigate and realize the government is deceiving them. As public trust in government erodes further than ever, future efforts toward mandatory vaccines will be met with more — and we hope successful — resistance.

    Not only are the vaccine antagonists being silenced (parents, physicians, journalists) but information used to successfully remediate the symptoms of neurological and other damage is ALSO. One person mentioned by Stephanie Seneff is Kerri Rivera whose son responded positively to MMS (chlorine dioxide) when other treatments failed.

    This must-watch video details the many problems with the development and safety of Merck’s third-highest grossing product, Gardasil. Children’s Health Defense (CHD) and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., CHD’s Chairman and Chief Legal Counsel, ask that you watch and share this video so that you, and others, may make an informed decision of whether or not to give your child, boy or girl, a Gardasil vaccine. It can also be a useful tool for pediatricians who are trying to understand how this vaccine, that is actually causing health problems with young people, could have been approved by FDA and then recommended by CDC. The video is full of jaw-dropping facts about Gardasil and the clinical trials leading up to its release upon an unsuspecting public.

    Now that we know how IMPORTANT vaccination is for health and how DANGEROUS refusal will be, READ this today.

    It's Not Just Measles. What You Should Know About Vaccines For Adults
    May 15, 20198:31 AM ET

    Amid one of the largest measles outbreaks in the U.S. in recent history, vaccines are on the minds of many Americans.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported this week that the number of measles cases this year has climbed to 839 in 23 states, affecting mostly unvaccinated people. Most people in the U.S. are vaccinated against measles when they're children as part of the routine immunizations they get in primary care.

    We're used to kids needing lots of shots to ward off lots of illnesses, but what about adults? The CDC recommends that adults get multiple vaccines for conditions ranging from tetanus to influenza to cervical cancer. The shots can be a bit trickier to keep track of, as many adults go to the doctor less frequently than kids do, but those vaccinations are equally important for staying healthy.

    "Many adults are not aware of what vaccines they actually need," says Dr. Pamela Rockwell, an associate professor of family medicine at the University of Michigan who works with the CDC's Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. "That is also balanced by physician unawareness of what vaccines they should be recommending. It's gotten very complicated, and it is difficult to keep up with all the changes."

    So we're here to answer some common questions about adult vaccines. Click on each topic to go to that section.

    1. Measles 2. Shingles 3. Tetanus 4. Vaccines during pregnancy 5. Before meeting a newborn baby 6. Before visiting the elderly 7. Chickenpox 8. Hepatitis B, A and C 9. HPV

    I was vaccinated against measles as a child, but the measles outbreak makes me worry that I'm no longer immune. Do I need to be revaccinated as an adult?

    If you received the standard two doses of the modern measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine, you're all set. You shouldn't need to be revaccinated, because you're considered immune for life.

    And if you were born before 1957, doctors assume you were exposed to measles as a child and are already immune.

    However, a version of the vaccine produced in the mid-to-late 1960s wasn't as effective as the current regimen, so if you were vaccinated before 1968, you should talk to your doctor about whether you need another shot. If you were born after 1957 but for some reason never got immunized, you should also get the MMR vaccine.

    I've heard there's an effective vaccine for shingles, but my doctor's office doesn't have it and it's out of stock at the pharmacy. What's going on?

    Shingrix is a two-dose vaccine that is upward of 95 percent effective at preventing shingles, a painful rash that tends to affect older adults and immunocompromised people. The vaccine was approved in 2017 and requires two injections. It's more effective than Zostavax, an older shingles vaccine, so doctors will recommend Shingrix over Zostavax to most patients over age 50.

    There has been a shortage of Shingrix for almost as long as it has been available because demand for the vaccine has outpaced the supply. Its manufacturer, GlaxoSmithKline, told the CDC that it's working to step up its production schedule. But because every dose of Shingrix needs to undergo safety checks, GSK expects that shortages will continue at least through the end of the year.

    Scramble For Shingles Vaccine: How To Cope With Shingrix Shortage
    "The demand was so great they literally couldn't keep up," Rockwell says.

    If you get the first dose, do your best to get the second one within two to six months. If your local pharmacies don't have Shingrix in stock, don't worry — you can use the HealthMap Vaccine Finder to find out where it is available. If you wait more than six months to get the second dose, you don't need to repeat the first one, but it's possible the vaccine won't be quite as effective in preventing shingles.

    What's the deal with tetanus shots? How often do I need them?

    Tetanus is a life-threatening disease of the nervous system that's caused by a toxin-producing bacterium usually found in soil. It can be prevented by a series of five childhood shots, including a booster between ages 11 and 12. Adults then need a booster shot every 10 years. It can be hard to keep track of this if you move or change doctors, so make a note in your calendar and don't be afraid to ask about it. If you get it early or a year or two late, it isn't harmful.

    If you ever have an injury that might expose you to tetanus — such as stepping on a nail — your doctor will ask when your latest tetanus booster was and may give you another booster shot on the spot. If you're not up to date on your tetanus vaccines, you may need additional treatment to prevent the disease.

    Childhood tetanus shots are combined with a vaccine for diphtheria, a dangerous infection that can affect kids, and one for pertussis, which is known as whooping cough. Your every-10-year tetanus and diphtheria boosters won't include pertussis, unless you're pregnant. But when you turn 65, you should again get the shot that protects against all three, which is known as Tdap.

    I'm thinking about having a baby. What vaccines do I need?

    Make sure you and everyone around you is up to date on standard childhood and adolescent vaccines, including pertussis, since babies are vulnerable to this disease. You should also get a dose of Tdap during prenatal care, since it's safe in pregnancy.

    Everyone also should get an annual flu shot, because pregnant women, who have weakened immune systems, are particularly susceptible to influenza and can get very sick or die from an infection.

    Severe Flu Raises Risk Of Birth Problems For Pregnant Women, Babies
    Severe Flu Raises Risk Of Birth Problems For Pregnant Women, Babies
    Even if you got all the recommended vaccines as a kid, it's possible your immunity has waned when it comes to some of the vaccine-preventable diseases that can be passed from mom to baby. This is why prenatal doctors and midwives check to make sure pregnant women are immune to hepatitis B, varicella (chickenpox) and rubella.

    If you find out you're not immune before you get pregnant, you should get vaccinated again. The hepatitis B vaccine is safe during pregnancy. But the varicella and MMR (which includes rubella protection) vaccines are not safe for pregnant patients, so your doctor is likely to recommend that you get them after delivery.

    I'm planning to visit my newborn nephew. What vaccines do I need?

    If you've gotten all your recommended vaccines and boosters, you're almost ready to meet the baby. Babies, like pregnant women, have weak immune systems, so an annual flu shot is important before interacting with a newborn. Adults over 65 should have gotten a pertussis booster (included in the Tdap shot).

    What about if I'm visiting my hospitalized, elderly grandmother?

    Older, hospitalized adults are similar to newborns in that their immune systems are weak and particularly vulnerable to infections. Follow the same advice as if you're going to meet a new baby.

    I was born before the varicella (chickenpox) vaccine existed. Do I need it now?

    The varicella vaccine was approved in 1995, so if you were born before then, there's a good chance you weren't vaccinated.

    But even if you weren't vaccinated, you're probably already immune because there's a high likelihood you've had chickenpox. The CDC says adults born before 1980 don't need the vaccine and don't need testing to prove their immunity.

    There are some occasions when doctors will want to order blood tests to make sure their patients are actually immune to varicella — for pregnant women and health care workers, for example. If you get tested and the blood test shows you're still susceptible, your doctor will recommend that you get the vaccine. But because the vaccine is so effective and the blood test isn't always accurate, getting tested isn't necessary for everyone.

    What do I need to know about all the different hepatitis shots?

    Hepatitis means inflammation of the liver, but when we're talking about vaccines, we're referring to several types of viruses that infect liver cells and can cause lots of different and potentially life-threatening problems, ranging from diarrhea to liver failure to cancer. Routine childhood immunizations include vaccines for hepatitis A and hepatitis B, meaning virtually all kids in the U.S. are vaccinated against them.

    Hepatitis B is transmitted through blood or sex. A vaccine for it has been available since the 1980s, but it's common for immunity to hepatitis B to decrease over time. If you work in health care or are thinking about becoming pregnant, your doctor might order a blood test that shows if you're still immune. If you're not, your doctor may recommend you get revaccinated as an adult.

    Hepatitis A is transmitted through the fecal-oral route, meaning that if you eat something that has been contaminated with the feces of an infected person, you can get it. The vaccine for hepatitis A was approved in 1995. If you're not yet vaccinated and you fall into one of a few groups — including if you're a man who has sex with other men, you're traveling to a country where the virus is endemic, you live with a person who has had hepatitis A — you should get the shots.

    Hepatitis C Not A Barrier For Organ Transplantation, Study Finds
    Hepatitis C Not A Barrier For Organ Transplantation, Study Finds
    Hepatitis C is another common viral infection that affects the liver. It's so common, in fact, that doctors routinely test people born between 1945 and 1965 for the virus. Unfortunately, there's no vaccine available for it, but it can be treated with an oral medication. If you haven't been screened for it, ask your doctor if you need to be.

    Who should get the HPV vaccine? What's it for?

    This is essentially a cancer vaccine.

    The Food and Drug Administration initially approved the HPV vaccine for girls and young women in the early 2000s, but the range of people who should get it has since grown. The FDA recently approved its use for people up to age 45. FDA approval is different from CDC guidelines, however. The CDC still officially recommends that both boys and girls get their first shot by 11 or 12, up until age 26 for women and 21 for men. The CDC adds that men up to age 26 "may be vaccinated" based on a consult with a doctor. If you're older than 26 and haven't been vaccinated, again, talk to your doctor about whether you need it.

    HPV stands for the human papillomaviruses, which cause a wide variety of conditions, ranging from common warts on hands and feet to cervical and anal cancer. The vaccine helps prevent infection from certain types of HPV, including the strains that are the most likely to cause cancer.

    It's a series of two shots, six to 12 months apart, which is a change from when the vaccine was first approved — it used to require three shots. Children who are late getting the HPV vaccine and receive their first dose after age 15 will still need three doses.

    And there's more.

    You may also need vaccines for conditions such as pneumonia or meningitis. Ask your doctor. What your doctor recommends will depend on your medical history and your risk factors, so don't be afraid to speak up at your next appointment. You can use this CDC quiz to see what might be right for you.

    Default Re: The US Vaccine issue is more than just about "The Shots", it's the Totalitarian Tiptoe

    Vaccine compensation stats

    Quote by Brian Shilhavy
    Editor, Health Impact News

    The federal government Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines (ACCV) under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services just concluded their first meeting of 2019 on March 8th.

    These quarterly meetings include a report from the Department of Justice (DOJ) on cases settled for vaccine injuries and deaths as mandated by the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP).

    The NVICP was started as a result of a law passed in 1986 that gave pharmaceutical companies total legal immunity from being sued due to injuries and deaths resulting from vaccines.

    Drug manufacturers in the vaccine market can now create as many new vaccines as they desire, with no risk of being sued if their product causes injury or death.

    This has resulted in a huge increase of vaccines entering the market, and the U.S. government, through the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), is the largest purchaser of these vaccines, spending in excess of $5 billion taxpayer dollars each year to purchase these vaccines.

    The CDC’s annual budget of $5 BILLION to purchase vaccines from pharmaceutical companies with American taxpayer funds, and the NVICP law which gives legal immunity to the pharmaceutical industry for injuries and deaths due to vaccines, are facts that are routinely censored and withheld from the public in the corporate-sponsored “mainstream” media, as well as in government legislative hearings that seek to mandate vaccines by force.

    If you or a family member is injured or dies from vaccines, you must sue the federal government and go up against their attorneys in this special vaccine court.

    Many cases are litigated for years before a settlement is reached, as can be seen from the report below. One flu shot victim litigated for 7 years before reaching a settlement, and one Gardasil HPV vaccine victim litigated for over 5 years before reaching a settlement, for example.

    Another Gardasil HPV vaccine victim who suffered cardiac arrest and death, took over 3 years to settle.

    As far as we know, Health Impact News is the only media source that publishes these DOJ reports on vaccine injuries and deaths each quarter. Past reports can be found here.

    The March 8, 2019 report states that 307 petitions were filed during the 3-month time period between 11/16/18 – 2/15/19, with 153 cases being adjudicated and 125 cases compensated.

    The DOJ report only lists 83 of these settlements for vaccine injuries and deaths.

    The total amount of damages paid out by the U.S. Government so far in 2019 for vaccine injuries and deaths is over $110 MILLION. (Source.)

    Mandatory Flu Shots on the Way?
    67 of the 83 vaccine injury cases listed in this report were for the flu shot.

    Currently, state legislatures across the country, as well as federal Congressional hearings the past two weeks, have considered mandating vaccines for childhood diseases based on a measles “outbreak” of about 130 people in 10 states over a several month period.

    Only one person in the U.S. has died from the measles in the past 12 years, while the The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) lists hundreds of reported deaths due to the measles vaccine. See:

    ZERO U.S. Measles Deaths in 10 Years, but Over 100 Measles Vaccine Deaths Reported
    Since the CDC claims that tens of thousands of people die each year from the flu (although those claims are estimates, and not based on facts – see: Did 80,000 People Really Die from the Flu Last Year? Inflating Flu Death Estimates to Sell Flu Shots), is the next step in legislative mandatory vaccine efforts going to be mandating the flu vaccine for every American all in the name of “the greater good?”

    Senator Rand Paul last week addressed this very issue, in voicing his opposition to government-forced vaccines ( Mar 5, 2019):

    As Senator Paul pointed out in his comments, the annual flu vaccine is based on a guess as to which strains will be most prevalent in the upcoming flu season, and in some years they are completely wrong.

    This is slightly off topic but telling. Apparently there is a real deficit of capacity to think reasonably when faced with emotionally laden topics. If one has been emotionally conditioned by certain themes (such as Arabic = a negative connotation) then people will reject all "things" Arabic?

    Quote 56 Percent Of Americans Don't Think We Should Teach Arabic Numerals In School

    If you grew up in America, you've probably used Arabic numerals pretty much every day of your life in some way. Same if you're English, French, or from most other countries.

    Even in China and Japan, where other numerals are used (零,Yī, 二, Èr, 三, for example), Arabic numerals are still regularly employed. Unless you're reading this in ancient Rome, you probably use them too.

    Nevertheless, a survey conducted by poll company Civic Science has found that 56 percent of Americans would like Arabic numerals (which are the numbers 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8, and 9, used in every number right up until infinity) banned in schools. America, your prejudice is showing.

    Quote John Dick
    Ladies and Gentlemen: The saddest and funniest testament to American bigotry we've ever seen in our data.
    Quote @MaxKennerly
    Replying to @jdcivicscience @mehdirhasan
    I, for one, fully support a return to Judeo-Christian values by <checks notes> using Roman numerals for math.

    Quote @Brian_Bokenyi
    Replying to @jdcivicscience
    In the survey, 3,624 people were asked: "Should schools in America teach Arabic Numerals as part of their curriculum?" to which 2,020 people (56 percent) said "no", and just 29 percent actually said "yes".

    The survey was designed to show the tribal impulses of people to answer a question without understanding it first, along their own biased lines.

    "Our goal in this experiment was to tease out prejudice among those who didn't understand the question," Civic Science's CEO John Dick explained on Twitter.

    "Most people don't know the origins of our numerical system and yet picked a tribal answer anyway. You can argue that one is worse than the other but both prove a similar point."

    Fifty-six percent is a lot of people to both not realize that the numbers we use are Arabic numerals and to say they shouldn't be taught in schools.

    However, this bias wasn't unique to people prejudiced against the word "Arabic". The survey also posed the question "Should schools in America teach the creation theory of Catholic priest Georges Lemaître as part of their science curriculum?" to which 53 percent of respondents said "no".

    Quote John Dick
    Replying to @AngelaZontek
    For what it's worth, the tribal impulse is evident on both sides, as seen here. Lemaitre is arguably even more obscure than Arabic numbers and yet people defaulted to their generally prejudiced corners.
    Which is a shame because while Georges Lemaître was a Catholic priest, his "theory of creation" was the theory that the universe is expanding, which was soon confirmed by Hubble and is now better known as the Big Bang theory.

    "Sorry to break this to everyone but it appears neither side has a monopoly on blind prejudice," Dick wrote. "Either that or 73% of Democrats believe schools shouldn't be teaching students about the Big Bang Theory."

    Quote John Dick
    Replying to @ClimateDuncan and 2 others
    For what it's worth, this kind of blind prejudice can happen on both sides. While Lemaitre is more obscure than Arabic Numerals, the resulting effect is almost identical. Dems are biased against Western religion, if latently.
    Rather than just answering "don't know", it appears to be pretty common to answer along prejudiced lines. In December 2015, Public Policy Polling released results of a poll that showed 41 percent of Trump supporters (and 19 percent of Democrats) supported bombing Agrabah, a fictional city from the Disney cartoon Aladdin, Snopes reports.
    Maybe that is true about the vaccine topic? I know that I reject all injected vaccines and I know others think all vaccines are GOOD. I AM for the science and at the same time I distrust the sources of "studies". I know we have to take this matter of health outside prejudices.

    I am willing to examine my stance about vaccines. For instance, in a way IMO one could call fecal implants a "kind" of vaccination? It is introducing bacteria etc. into the GI tract and has been shown to remediate symptoms of many ills. I am not too uncomfortable with the idea of oral and maybe inhaled ingestion being a "natural" route for vaccination?

    However my major concern is STILL that we cannot accept forced vaccination.

    The lack of liability of manufacturers and the lack of accountability of providers is one of the major imbalances in the system of vaccination policies.

    The makers and sellers and individual providers need to be held accountable. Providing Informed Consent (by identifying people at risk for serious reactions) is the responsibility of the health care system. The fact that physicians accept reimbursement for their vaccination quotas is not balanced by their lack of personal accountability for the outcomes.

    Proper technique is assumed but is not always happening. Practically anyone can inject a person with this POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS SUBSTANCE. These people who give the shots also need to be held liable.

    The system is broken. When the 1986 ruling for the manufacturers that shifts the liability to the federal government is over turned, that will make a tremendous difference.

    Is focus on refusing to allow all these layers of the vaccine agenda to MANDATE without repercussions a point where people could all agree?

    Apparently large numbers of injury begin JUST WITH the shot itself.
    Quote Shoulder Injury Related to Vaccine Administration (SIRVA)

    Shoulder injury related to vaccine administration is an under-reported, preventable series of events caused by incorrect technique or landmarking for intramuscular deltoid injections.1,2 Specifically, SIRVA occurs when an intramuscular deltoid injection is administered into the shoulder joint.1,2 This results in an inflammatory process that causes damage to the musculoskeletal structures including the bursae, tendons, and ligaments.2 The main symptoms include persistent shoulder pain and a limited range of motion.2 The keys to distinguishing SIRVA are that the symptoms typically begin within 48 hours of vaccine administration and that they do not improve with over-the-counter analgesic medications.2 Patients will often visit their physicians months later because they are not able to carry out daily tasks that were possible before the vaccination.2 These patients are often diagnosed with inflammatory injuries such as bursitis, rotator cuff tears, and adhesive capsulitis.1
    Quote Federal Program Pays Out Millions for Shots Given Incorrectly But Only for Certain Vaccines
    By Jodie Fleischer, Rick Yarborough and Jeff Piper
    Published May 16, 2019

    A federal program has paid out millions of dollars to people injured after having a vaccine they say was given incorrectly, but many patients are finding out, even if they have that same injury, they're not eligible for the program, leaving them few options for any relief.

    The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program pays injured patients settlements to prevent them from suing vaccine makers. The News4 I-Team tracked more than $133 million paid to people with a condition called shoulder injury related to vaccine administration (SIRVA). It now makes up more than half of all the new cases filed in the program each year.

    "Everybody is starting to become more aware of the incidence of SIRVA. That's why I think that number will keep going up," said Paul Brazil, who specializes in vaccine injury cases.

    Brazil has filed hundreds of SIRVA claims for patients around the country. He says they've experienced excruciating pain and limited use of their arm. Any shot given too high in the deltoid muscle can cause SIRVA, no matter which vaccine is in the syringe.

    1/2 of New Vaccine Cases Allege Injury by Shots Given Wrong

    An I-Team review found half of all the new federal vaccine injury cases allege “shoulder injury resulting from vaccine administration,” or SIRVA, and have little or nothing to do with what was in the syringe. Jodie Fleischer reports.(Published Wednesday, May 2, 2018)
    "People have multiple surgeries. They could be missing time from work. They could have out-of-pocket medical expenses," Brazil said. "It can be a pretty substantial monetary payment."

    Virginia resident Bob Simmons said he developed SIRVA immediately following a shingles vaccine in April 2018. More than a year later, the 72-year-old triathlete said he can't even use his left arm to hold a dinner plate, let alone pick up his eight grandchildren.

    "Compared to the injuries a lot of people have, catastrophic injuries and everything else, it's hard for me to complain too much. But it is an inconvenience; it's tough," Simmons said. "And it doesn't seem to be getting any better."

    Program Pays Patients Hurt by Shots, Doesn't Tell Shot-Giver
    But even though SIRVA is believed to be caused by how the shot is given, Simmons found you have to have had the right shot to get paid through the program.

    Seasonal flu shots are covered. Tetanus shots are covered. Shingles shots are not.

    "Any claim where you list the shingles vaccine as the cause of your injury will just be summarily dismissed," Brazil said.

    Program Pays Patients Hurt by Shots, Doesn't Tell Shot-Giver
    The News4 I-Team found a federal program that pays the victims of shots given incorrectly a settlement but doesn't tell the person who gave the shot. Jodie Fleischer reports.(Published Monday, June 18, 2018)

    The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program was created decades ago for the childhood vaccines that kids are required get in their first few years of life. If adults get the same version kids get, they're covered, too. In fact, adults now account for most of the cases in the program. But Congress never expanded it to include adults-only versions of vaccines.

    The pneumonia vaccine, Prevnar, is covered, but Pneumovax, primarily for adults, is not. The shingles vaccine differs slightly from the childhood vaccine for chicken pox, so injuries from a chicken pox shot are covered, but the same injuries when caused by a shingles shot are not.

    Simmons says if SIRVA is a covered injury in the program; it shouldn't matter what kind of shot it was.

    Half of New Vaccine Cases Allege Injury by Shots Given Wrong
    "It's ridiculous! Why should it [matter]? It's the administration of the shot, not what's in the shot," he said.

    Brazil said it's unfair, but there is an explanation.

    "It really comes down to money," he said.

    For every vaccine covered by the program, the patient getting the shot pays a 75-cent tax, which helps fund those payouts. So shots that don't collect the tax can't be included.

    Brazil said sometimes you can't even tell which shot caused the injury. Seniors often get multiple shots at the same time, in the same arm.

    "There are a lot of reasons why it would make sense to just include every vaccine," Brazil said. "If Pharma wanted to change it, if they wanted to be included, they'd be included."

    He said the pharmaceutical company Merck could have pushed to get its shingles shot, Zostavax, into the program but didn't. Now the company is facing dozens of lawsuits alleging serious side effects, including death.

    But Brazil said SIRVA cases are excluded from that action.

    "SIRVA's a little different because we think SIRVA is caused by improper administration. Therefore, the manufacturer wouldn't be on the hook for that," Brazil said.

    Plus, the shingles shot Simmons got was from a different vaccine-maker. His only option would be going after the vaccine-giver.

    "That would require suing the pharmacy, or wherever he received the vaccine, and trying to prove negligence," Brazil said. "Mr. Simmons is in a tough spot."

    Simmons said the Costco pharmacist who gave him the shot was standing while he was sitting down, which the CDC warns against.

    “Costco cannot comment on the specifics regarding this particular case, however, all Costco Pharmacists are certified to administer immunizations and have received training through a nationally recognized accredited program,” Costco said in a statement to the I-Team. “Our immunization procedure manual is updated annually and includes information on proper vaccine administration. Additionally, any reported immunization incidents are submitted to the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS).”

    Simmons said Costco did report his injury to the manufacturer and a federal system that tracks vaccine injuries.

    It's now been a year since his shot, and he said he's lost 80 percent of his arm's strength.

    "I'm not really litigious in nature," Simmons said. "I just want to get my arm fixed. I was in pretty good shape up until that point in time."

    There are many indications that the administration of vaccines via muscle (route) is flawed. The local injury of SIRVA, the mechanism by which the immune system responds to the adjuvants and the obvious systemic injuries all show the technique is poor. Skin, the GI tract and the Respiratory tract are the way that the body naturally processes antigens and develops immunity.

    The vaccine "idea" of deliberately introducing information to the body so that there is an immune response that is less dramatic than the disease itself is a good one. This is why propaganda is able to over ride the facts.

    Once upon a time milkmaids who encountered a cow's cowpox also developed reistance to small pox. This morphed into deliberately scratching the skin with virulent material form the cow. The the process was removed farther and farther from a "natural" delivery. Now the remove is so great and the mechanism so foreign that the vaccine itself is DEADLY.

    Florence Nightingale, NOT physicians in her era showed the most IMPORTANT missing aspect. Interventions "nursing" us to health with natural processes (like natural healing processes from all eras and all cultures) does no harm. Surgery is helpful when bones are broken. Physicians job is to UNDERSTAND the person, his/her body and how to direct the "nursing".

    Quote According to Nightingale, nursing is separate from medicine. The goal of nursing is to put the patient in the best possible condition in order for nature to act.
    IMO what Jenner did FIRST was an act of nursing nature along.

    Quote Edward Jenner, an English country doctor from Gloucestershire, administers the world’s first vaccination as a preventive treatment for smallpox, a disease that had killed millions of people over the centuries.

    While still a medical student, Jenner noticed that milkmaids who had contracted a disease called cowpox, which caused blistering on cow’s udders, did not catch smallpox. Unlike smallpox, which caused severe skin eruptions and dangerous fevers in humans, cowpox led to few ill symptoms in these women. On May 14, 1796, Jenner took fluid from a cowpox blister and scratched it into the skin of James Phipps, an eight-year-old boy. A single blister rose up on the spot, but James soon recovered. On July 1, Jenner inoculated the boy again, this time with smallpox matter, and no disease developed. The vaccine was a success. Doctors all over Europe soon adopted Jenner’s innovative technique, leading to a drastic decline in new sufferers of the devastating disease.https://www.history.com/this-day-in-...allpox-vaccine
    Quote Introduction of variolation and vaccination
    Disfiguring pockmarks were 1 sequela of smallpox survival, and those who bore these scars were observed to be immune to disease recurrence. Although persons who acquired smallpox through a scratch were not completely protected from disease, they had an attenuated disease course. On the basis of these observations, attempts were made to expose people to smallpox material, thus inducing a milder form of the disease and protecting against fulminant smallpox on natural exposure. Inoculation with smallpox pus or scabs either by a nasal or cutaneous route, a process known as variolation, was initiated as early as 1000 AD in China.2
    The practice of vaccination was introduced centuries later by Edward Jenner in 1796. The term vaccination is derived from vacca, the Latin word for cow. Milkmaids who developed cowpox lesions were observed to be resistant to smallpox. Jenner took material from a cowpox lesion on the hand of milkmaid Sarah Nelmes and inoculated a young boy, James Phipps. Phipps was resistant to smallpox on subsequent exposure. Jenner extended this experiment to other children, with the same outcome. Cowpox inoculation was relatively benign compared with variolation, and Jenner's practice of vaccination gradually gained acceptance. Initially, vaccination was performed with cowpox virus, but over time, vaccinia virus, the origin of which is unknown, became the preferred virus for vaccination.2
    Smallpox eradication
    At the start of the 19th century, arm-to-arm vaccination was practiced; however, by the close of the century, this practice was being replaced by vaccine produced from the hides of live animals by harvesting lymph. This was primarily done in calves, but donkeys and horses were also used. Although this practice allowed manufacturing capacity to be distributed even to remote areas, it was complicated by the risk of contamination from bacteria, fungi, and other viruses and raised the theoretical risk of transmissible spongiform encephalopathies.4 Strains of vaccinia virus and methods of storage and application of vaccines varied significantly by region after a century of nonstandardized and unregulated smallpox vaccination.2 In 1965, the World Health Organization (WHO) mandated that undiluted smallpox vaccine should contain 1 × 108 plaque-forming units per milliliter.5 Vaccine was introduced into the epidermis by various methods, but in 1968, the bifurcated needle became the accepted method of vaccination because of its practical advantages. The bifurcated needle was designed to contain about 2.5 μL vaccine suspension, facilitating transfer of the vaccine to the skin, and the flat prongs provided consistent delivery to the right depth during the multiple shallow punctures administered.Smallpox vaccines: Past, present, and future

    09 May 2019 | [At the behest of the pharma-terrorists,] Instagram has struggled to beat back content promoting vaccination conspiracy theories, so it's taking new steps to prevent misinformation around this topic from spreading further. The company will now begin to block hashtags that show consistently false information about vaccines, such as #vaccinescauseautism and #vaccinesarepoison. Once a hashtag has been blocked, if a user attempts to search that term, it will no longer return any results when users click on it.

    A post copied from a local anti-vaccine FB group in my area:

    "👉A little factual history, because most people really don't realize the true history of Polio. We all just think of paralyzed children in iron lungs who later died. But, the Merck manual says that more than 90% of polio cases simply resembled the stomach flu, another 5% had abortive polio which included a sore throat, and another 3% had non-paralytic polio which includes some limb weakness and numbness. This 98% of people infected with polio had a complete recovery (and have life long immunity) and the symptoms resolved within 10-14 days. About 2% (slightly less) had paralytic polio. Of this 2% it is divided into 3 subcategories, but among the 3 more than 50% had a complete recovery rate, and in the other 50% some had a longer recovery and some did not fully recover - having some paralysis and some died. Of that 2%, 2% had bulbar polio, which was the horrific kind shown on TV (that is less than .04% of the people that contracted polio).

    👉Charts show a decline from the peak of polio in 1954, BEFORE vaccine trials began on April 12, 1955. After the vaccine trials started, an INCREASE in Polio cases was reported in Vermont (up 266%), Rhode Island (up 454%) and Massachusetts (up 643%). Idaho and Utah eve BANNED the vaccine because prior to the vaccine trials there had never been a case reported in those states and once they started vaccinating, people were getting infected.

    👉In June of 1955, just weeks after massive vaccination started, 2 of 8 lots of vaccines were administered which released live virus, infecting 40,000 people with polio, 164 were permanently paralyzed and 10 died."




    This study shows those vaccinated are able to spread polio. For 2 months polio was running through their community, via VDPV, and only 1 child, immunocompromised, had any issue! Polio is not the "killer/iron lung-er it's portrayed to be. 95% of polio that contract polio never even know they have it.






    Prior to 1954, the following undoubtedly hid behind the name “poliomyelitis”: Transverse Myelitis, viral or “aseptic” meningitis, Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS)- (what Franklin Delano Roosevelt had), Chinese Paralytic syndrome, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, epidemic cholera, cholera morbus, spinal meningitis, spinal apoplexy, inhibitory palsy, intermittent fever, famine fever, worm fever, bilious remittent fever, ergotism, post-polio syndrome, acute flaccid paralysis(AFP).

    Included under the umbrella term “Acute Flaccid Paralysis” are Poliomyelitis, Transverse Myelitis, Guillain-Barré syndrome, enteroviral encephalopathy, traumatic neuritis, Reye’s syndrome etc.

    See more at: http://www.vaccinationcouncil.org/…/...ors-and-the…/…

    India and the vaccine causing polio:

    The Cutter Incident:
    “The contaminated vaccine was directly responsible for five deaths and 51 cases of permanent paralysis among those who were vaccinated by the Cutter product. The vaccine also triggered a small epidemic among family members and others who had close contact with the children whod fallen ill. This resulted in five more deaths, and 113 more cases of paralysis.”

    “In addition, about 40,000 children mostly in California, Idaho, New Mexico and Arizona developed the stiff neck, headache, fever and muscle weakness of abortive polio, a short-lived and milder form of the disease that leaves no lasting damage.”

    When polio vaccine backfired / Tainted batches killed 10 and paralyzed 164.


    Vaccine induced polio


    Polio caused by the vaccine. Very good article in The Lancet.


    Read Dr. Suzanne Humphries chapter on polio for free!








    Salk polio vaccine video:

    In case you didn't know, vaccines were spreading polio. "On September 24, 1976, the Washington Post reported Dr. Salk's assertion that the Sabin live oral virus vaccine had been the "principal if not sole cause" of every reported polio case in the United States since 1961. Salk repeated this accusation July 6, 1977, when he was interviewed on CBC television, saying: "We have known now since 1961 in the United States, and prior to that in other countries, that the live virus vaccine for polio does cause the disease itself."
    This is where he said that in 1977 on television. Proof."


    The chances of getting polio worldwide are over 1 in 19 million according to data from 2014. Most cases are asymptomatic, meaning you have no symptoms. High doses of vitamin C can prevent complications. See info on Pentacel and pediarix. They are polio combo vaccines.

    Poliomyelitis = 72% of infections cause no symptoms; 25% flu-like symptoms that last 2-5 days; 0.5% leads to more severe symptoms such as paralytic polio; only people with the paralytic infection are considered to have the disease.

    13 Things You Don't Know About Polio

    1. A pesticide common in the 1800's was called Paris Green. A green liquid because it was a combination of copper and arsenic or lead and arsenic. Some of the most toxic substances known to humankind.

    2. This pesticide worked by causing neurological damage in the bugs, causing organ failure.

    3. Polio consists of symptoms synonymous with neurological damage, causing organ failure.

    4. Heavy metal poisoning from lead, mercury and other similar heavy metals manifest lesions on neurological tissues, meaning the toxin destroys the nerve/communication pathways connecting the brain to the organs in the body. http://bit.ly/1OLcFgG

    5. Polio victims present lesions on neurological tissue, that cause the organs to malfunction all around the body. (lungs, heart, nerves that control walking etc)

    6. Polio outbreaks hit throughout the summer, only during pesticide spraying times. (not the sunless and damp winter/spring seasons regarding other disease outbreaks)

    7. Polio had NO ability to spread from infected victims to the uninfected. Polio infected clusters of people in the exact same areas, suddenly and swiftly. http://bit.ly/1P6zShV

    8. Parents report finding their children paralyzed in and around apple orchards. One of the most heavily pesticide sprayed crops of the time (with lead arsenate or copper arsenate) were apple orchards.

    9. President Roosevelt became paralyzed over night while on his farm in the summer, which contained many crops, including apple orchards. He also swam the day prior in a bay that was heavily polluted by industrial agricultural run off.

    10. Dr. Ralph Scobey and Dr. Mortind Biskind testified in front of the U.S Congress in 1951 that the paralysis around the country known as polio was being caused by industrial poisons and that a virus theory was purposely fabricated by the chemical industry and the government to deflect litigation away from both parties. http://bit.ly/1DKDb3v

    11. In 1956 the AMA (The American Medical Association) instructed each licensed medical doctor that they could no longer classify polio as polio, or their license to practice would be terminated. Any paralysis was now to be diagnosed as AFP (acute flaccid paralysis) MS, MD, Bell's Palsy, cerebral palsy, ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease), Guillian-Barre, meningitis etc etc. http://bit.ly/1Ml3rpX This was orchestrated purposely to make the public believe polio was eradicated by the polio vaccine campaign but because the polio vaccine contained toxic ingredients directly linked to paralysis, polio cases (not identified as polio) were skyrocketing...but only in vaccinated areas. http://bit.ly/1WEHYzR

    12. The first polio vaccine was worked on by Dr. Jonas Salk and human experiments using this vaccine were conducted purposely on orphans in government/church run institutions because they were vulnerable and didn't require any parental consent signatures, as they had no parents. The vaccine was "declared safe" by "medicine" (as they always are even though that vaccine was killing and paralyzing monkeys in test trials) and that vaccine gave 40,000 orphans polio, permanently paralyzed hundreds and killed at least 10 children. All injuries and deaths under reported of course by the same authorities who orchestrated the atrocity. This was called The Cutter Incident. Have you noticed the medical industry's obsession with poisoning children? http://1.usa.gov/1mEozNJ

    13. The next "improved" polio vaccine, given to hundreds of millions, carried both the SV 40 cancer virus as well as the AIDS virus. Every step of the way, medicine declaring they know for sure, that this time, they have everything straightened out. Same story then, same story now. The only thing larger than the pile of broken medical and government promises, is the pile of broken and dead bodies. http://bit.ly/1HfHR7W Cancerous tumors, still being pulled out of people today, are riddled with SV40 cancer viruses from the government's "safe and effective" and "approved" polio vaccine. http://bit.ly/1jGvysV

    When someone talks of any disease, in this day and age, they're often just repeating what they were told by the government. When someone today repeats anything about polio and polio elimination based on vaccination, they're repeating known lies, told by known liars. Repeating what you're told and intelligence aren't the same thing. Repeating or intelligence. The choice is yours. Research the hidden history of polio, the disease that never was."

    More unintended consequences
    the highlighted portion mentions my earlier point that the route of vaccine injection is not natural.
    Quote Influenza vaccines and dengue-like disease
    [Title modified on 11 April 2018 by Sharon Davies, The BMJ]

    Last year's influenza vaccine also contained the same H3N2 strain as this year's vaccine (A/Hong Kong/4801/2014 (H3N2)-like virus). Many people would have developed long term IgE mediated sensitization to the H3N2 viral proteins due to last year's vaccine [1–4]⁠. Those who received the Flublok vaccine can be expected to have an even stronger IgE response due to its 3X viral protein content [5,4]⁠. This year's vaccine H3N2 proteins would have been neutralized by these IgE antibodies. Thus resulting in the observed low vaccine efficacy. [6⁠]

    When a person making anti-H3N2 IgE is infected with H3N2, one can expect the course of the flu to be significantly worse. So the "cytokine storm" being observed in severe cases is likely to be an infection concurrent with an allergic reaction. Death is caused by anaphylactic shock but due to the presence of an infection, it is wrongly classified as septic shock.

    In the case of food allergy for example, the allergen exposure can be large enough to cause an immediate hypersensitivity reaction and anaphylactic shock within minutes/hours. In the case of influenza allergy, it may take a day or two for the virus to replicate and produce enough viral exposure for anaphylaxis. So the anaphylaxis unfolds over a couple of days.

    “Self-reported vaccination for the current season was associated with a trend (P < 0.10) toward higher viral shedding in fine-aerosol samples; vaccination with both the current and previous year’s seasonal vaccines, however, was significantly associated with greater fine-aerosol shedding in unadjusted and adjusted models (P < 0.01). In adjusted models, we observed 6.3 (95% CI 1.9–21.5) times more aerosol shedding among cases with vaccination in the current and previous season compared with having no vaccination in those two seasons.” [7⁠]

    This result makes a lot of sense. When you have influenza virus allergy and are infected, you have more mast cell degranulation, more histamine, more mucus, more sneezing, more viral shedding.

    Increased hospitalization rates have been observed in asthma patients that have received the influenza vaccine. Again, this is as predicted because asthma patients are likely to produce stronger IgE responses to the viral proteins upon vaccination. [8⁠] On subsequent virus exposure, they can be expected to develop severe IgE mediated asthma.

    Consider dengue infection. The initial mosquito bite that injects dengue virus into a person, causes the induction of IgE against dengue proteins. [9]⁠ Upon a subsequent bite that introduces the dengue virus again, the person develops hives due to a dengue specific-IgE mediated allergic reaction. As the infection (and thus allergic reaction) progresses and more histamine is released, vascular permeability increases. The result is hypotension and dengue shock syndrome. [10]⁠ Basically, a type 1 hypersensitivity reaction caused upon dengue virus exposure following IgE mediated sensitization to dengue viral proteins.

    The route of exposure for natural influenza infection is the respiratory tract, not subcutaneous (SC) or intramuscular (IM) injection. Influenza vaccines artificially changed the route of initial viral protein exposure to SC or IM injection thus making it similar to the route of exposure for dengue. The result is an IgE response to influenza proteins, similar to the response for dengue. It should therefore not come as a surprise that we are modifying the course of influenza infection such that it is acquiring characteristics of a dengue infection (hives and shock).

    As a result, allergy medications such as antihistamines and anaphylaxis treatments may have to be considered to avoid or treat this man-made influenza shock syndrome.

    I am considering that we can use the #noNCVIA to rebrand communication concerning vaccine truth.

    Quote MAY 16, 2019
    NCVIA: The Legislation that Changed Everything—Conflicts of Interest Undermine Children’s Health: Part II

    The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act in 1986 freed pharmaceutical companies from liability for injuries resulting from childhood vaccines—“no matter how toxic the ingredients, how negligent the manufacturer or how grievous the harm.”

    [Note: This is Part II in a series of articles extracted from the second Children’s Health Defense eBook: Conflicts of Interest Undermine Children’s Health. The first eBook, The Sickest Generation: The Facts Behind the Children’s Health Crisis and Why It Needs to End, described how children’s health began to worsen dramatically in the late 1980s following fateful changes in the childhood vaccine schedule.]

    By the Children’s Health Defense Team

    In 1986, President Ronald Reagan signed into law a piece of legislation called the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA), crafted by then-Representative Henry Waxman (now a health industry lobbyist). According to the New York Times, President Reagan “said he had approved the bill ‘with mixed feelings’”—despite his own Justice Department urging him to veto the Act.

    With the stroke of a pen, Congress essentially abolished vaccine injury lawsuits against vaccine manufacturers…
    The NCVIA radically altered the vaccine policy landscape in the United States. The Act was Congress’s response to intense pressure from vaccine industry lobbyists seeking protection from lawsuits related to the infamously brain-damaging diphtheria, whole-cell pertussis and tetanus (DPT) vaccine. The industry’s lobbying efforts paid off in spades. Replacing judicial action with a more circumscribed “alternative remedy…for specified vaccine-related injuries,” the Act created the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP), funded by taxpayers through an excise tax on childhood vaccines. With the stroke of a pen, Congress essentially abolished vaccine injury lawsuits against vaccine manufacturers (and health providers), while creating an administrative mechanism (subsequently nicknamed “vaccine court”) from which individuals could seek—but not necessarily obtain—redress for vaccine injuries through “Special Masters” designated to serve as arbiters.

    The NCVIA gave pharmaceutical companies what amounted to blanket immunity from liability for injuries resulting from childhood vaccines—“no matter how toxic the ingredients, how negligent the manufacturer or how grievous the harm”—while also exempting companies from the transparency and document discovery normally associated with litigation.

    Summarizing the legislation’s far-reaching implications, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has stated: “That extraordinary law eliminated a principal cost associated with making…drugs and left the industry with little economic incentive to make vaccines safe. It also removed lawyers, judges and courts from their traditional roles as guardians of vaccine safety. Since the law’s passage, industry revenues have skyrocketed from $1 billion to $44 billion.”

    The NCVIA requires that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) review childhood vaccine safety on a biannual basis and report to Congress on measures taken to improve safety. However, legislators appear to have intended that stipulation largely as window dressing, because—as revealed in a lawsuit filed by the Informed Consent Action Network (ICAN) and Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.—HHS officials have never complied with the statutory safety review and reporting requirements even once in over thirty years.

    For the most part, however, parents, attorneys, health care professionals and members of the general public are unaware of the NVICP’s existence and, according to HHS, fewer than 1% of vaccine adverse events are ever reported. Thus, NVICP claims represent only the tip of a vast vaccine injury iceberg.
    Compensation…for a Few
    In the three decades since the NVICP’s creation, American households have filed roughly 20,000 petitions for vaccine injury compensation. The program has paid out over $4 billion to a subset—barely a third (31%)—of petitioners, while dismissing well over half (56%) of filed claims as undeserving of any compensation. Another 12% of petitions remains unadjudicated. Injured parties filed an average of 1,200 claims per year over the last three years, triple the average number of claims filed annually just a few years previously. For the most part, however, parents, attorneys, health care professionals and members of the general public are unaware of the NVICP’s existence and, according to HHS, fewer than 1% of vaccine adverse events are ever reported. Thus, NVICP claims represent only the tip of a vast vaccine injury iceberg.

    …the NVICP pits HHS and its subsidiary agencies (including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC]) as adversaries against injured petitioners.
    Despite Congress’s professed intent to create a non-adversarial, “accessible and efficient forum for individuals found to be injured by certain vaccines,” in practice, the NVICP pits HHS and its subsidiary agencies (including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC]) as adversaries against injured petitioners. HHS employees are free to decide on or reject compensation claims, and Department of Justice (DOJ) lawyers represent and defend the interests of HHS. Petitioners also face a three-year statute of limitations from the time of the vaccine injury and must meet a strenuous burden of proof if—as is almost always the case—their illness, disability, injury or condition does not fall within the narrow parameters of the NVICP’s Vaccine Injury Table.

    As set out by the NCVIA, the Vaccine Injury Table was supposed to establish “statutory presumptions of causation” for selected injuries and adverse events occurring within prescribed time periods after vaccination, making the path to compensation less burdensome (at least for those injuries); however, because HHS can—almost at will—“add or delete injuries and conditions for which compensation would be available and…change the applicable time periods by which the onset of symptoms must occur,” the agency has not hesitated to take advantage of this provision to “eliminate avenues to compensation.” Very few new injuries have been added to the Table, despite the large number of vaccines piled onto the childhood schedule since 1986.

    HHS and the DOJ have found many ways to limit the number of petitioners awarded compensation. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has called attention to “highly unethical and appallingly consequential official misconduct” exhibited by DOJ lawyers in a 2007-2008 Omnibus Autism Proceeding (OAP) orchestrated on behalf of 5,400 families who had filed claims for vaccine-induced autism. The claims’ potential value exceeded $100 billion—an amount that “would have bankrupted the [compensation] program many times over.” The DOJ lawyers, under pressure to deprive petitioners of their rightful relief, achieved that aim through allegedly fraudulent means.

    In September, 2018, Kennedy, Jr. and Rolf Hazlehurst (one of the OAP parents) requested that the DOJ Inspector General and Congress investigate this fraud and obstruction of justice. In their joint letter, they stated:

    “During the Omnibus Autism Proceeding, Department of Justice attorneys…acted in concert with their client, the Department of Health and Human Services, to intentionally misrepresent the opinion of their own expert witness, and to willfully conceal from the vaccine court and petitioners critical material evidence showing how vaccines may cause autism. The same DOJ attorneys subsequently intentionally misled the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. As a result, fraud was ultimately perpetrated upon the Supreme Court of the United States.”

    Regulatory Vacuum
    The DOJ actions initiated during the OAP had a number of legal spillover effects, culminating in a disastrous (for the vaccine-injured) decision (Bruesewitz v. Wyeth) by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2011 that reiterated and even broadened the NCVIA’s basic no-liability premise. In their 2011 majority ruling, Justices asserted that the Act “preempts all design-defect claims against vaccine manufacturers brought by plaintiffs who seek compensation for injury or death caused by vaccine side effects.” At the time, none of the Justices “had reason to know that HHS was not acting in good faith” nor that DOJ attorneys, in earlier cases, had “conceal[ed] critical material evidence and mis[led] the special masters and the U.S. Court of Appeals.”

    In a dissent to the 2011 decision, Justices Sotomayor and Ginsburg commented that vaccine manufacturers, “given the lack of robust competition in the vaccine market, will often have little or no incentive to improve the designs of vaccines that are already generating significant profit margins” [emphasis added]. The two Justices predicted—quite accurately—that the Court’s unfortunate decision would leave a “regulatory vacuum” and would make it even harder to strike a balance between “compensating vaccine-injured children and stabilizing the childhood vaccine market.”

    Exporting the no-liability model
    In 2016, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Wellcome Trust—the world’s two wealthiest charitable foundations and two of the biggest global funders of vaccine development and vaccine programs—teamed up with vaccine manufacturers and government partners from a variety of countries to launch the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI). According to a recent analysis in the Emory Law Journal, the blanket immunity ushered in by the NCVIA has been so successful for vaccine manufacturers that CEPI is looking to export it, creating “liability protection and compensation mechanisms based on the U.S. model for vaccine liability” around the world.

    The law journal author, Professor Mary Holland, cautions that this would be unfortunate for the developing world. In countries that adopt the U.S. model, vaccines are likely to end up being “less safe than they could be,” with an inevitable loss of public confidence “both in vaccines and in those recommending them.”

    The next installment of Conflicts of Interest Undermine Children’s Health, Part III, will discuss how the NCVIA turned vaccines into a major economic driver of the medical and pharmaceutical industries, sparking a “gold rush” of liability-free vaccine development.


    [At the time of this article, some states like Minnesota, are requesting that Congress remove pharmaceutical company liability protection for vaccine injury.]

    Quote The Disintegrated Mind: The Greatest Threat to Human Survival on Earth
    By TLB Contributor: Robert J. Burrowes

    Like many people who have struggled to understand why human beings are driving the sixth mass extinction event in Earth’s history, which now threatens imminent human extinction as well, over many decades I have explored the research and efforts of a great many activists and scholars to secure this understanding. However, with many competing ideas from the fields of politics, economics, sociology and psychology, among others, this understanding has proved elusive. Nevertheless, I have reached an understanding that I find compelling: Human beings are driving the sixth mass extinction event in Earth’s history because of the disintegrated nature of the human mind.

    While the expression ‘mental disintegration’ has been used in a number of contexts previously, for the purpose of my discussion in this article I am going to redefine it, explain how it originates, describe several ways in which it manifests behaviorally and the profoundly dysfunctional outcomes this generates, and suggest what we can do about it.

    Given that the expression, as I am using it, describes a shocking psychological state but also one that is so widespread it afflicts virtually everyone, it can be described as posing the greatest threat to human survival on Earth. Why? Simply because it caused – and now prevents virtually everyone from thinking, feeling, planning and behaving functionally in response to – the multifaceted threats to humanity and the biosphere.

    So, for the purpose of this article: Mental disintegration describes a state in which the various parts of the human mind are no longer capable of working as an integrated unit. That is, each part of the mind – such as memory, thoughts, feelings, sensing capacities (sight, hearing…), ‘truth register’, conscience – function largely independently of each other, rather than as an integrated whole. The immediate outcome of this dysfunction is that human behaviour lacks consideration, conviction, courage and strategy, and is simply driven compulsively by the predominant fear in each context.

    The reason this issue first attracted my attention was because, on many occasions, I observed individuals (ranging from people I knew, to politicians) behaving in ways that seemed outrageous but it was also immediately apparent that the individual was completely unaware of the outrageous nature of their behaviour. On the contrary, it seemed perfectly appropriate to them. With the passage of time, however, I have observed this dysfunctionality in an enormously wide variety of more subtle and common forms, making me realise just how widespread it is even if it goes largely unrecognized. After all, if virtually everyone does it in particular contexts, then why should it be considered ‘abnormal’?

    One version of this mental disintegration is the version usually known as ‘cognitive dissonance’. The widely accepted definition of this state, based on Leon Festinger’s research in the 1950s, goes something like this: Cognitive dissonance theory suggests that we have an inner drive to hold all of our attitudes, beliefs, values and behavior in harmony and to avoid disharmony (or dissonance). This is known as the principle of cognitive consistency. When there is an inconsistency between attitudes, beliefs and/or values on the one hand and behaviors on the other (dissonance), something must change to eliminate the dissonance.

    The problem with this approach to the issue is that it assumes awareness of the inconsistency on the part of the individual impacted and also assumes (based on Festinger’s research) that there is some inclination to seek consistency. But my own observations of a vast number of people in a substantial variety of contexts over several decades have clearly revealed that, in very many contexts, individuals have no awareness of any discrepancy and, hence, have no inclination to seek consistency between their attitude, belief and/or value and their behavior. Moreover, even if they do have some awareness of the inconsistency, most people simply act on the basis of their predominant emotion – usually fear – in the context and pass it off with a rationalization. For example, that their particular work/role is so important that it justifies their excessive consumption on a planet of limited and unequally shared resources.

    Consequently, to choose an obvious example, most climate, environmental, anti-nuclear and anti-war activists fail to grapple meaningfully with the obvious contradiction between their own over-consumption of fossil fuels and resources generally and the role that consumption of these resources plays in driving the climate and environmental catastrophes as well as war. The idea of reducing their own personal consumption is beyond serious contemplation (let alone action). And, of course, it goes without saying that the global elite suffers this disintegration of the mind by failing to connect their endless acquisition of power, profit and privilege at the expense of all others and the Earth, with the accelerating and multifaceted threats to human survival including the future of their own children. But the examples are endless.

    In any case, leaving aside ‘cognitive dissonance’, there are several types of mental disintegration as I define it in this article. Let me briefly give you five examples of mental disintegration before explaining why it occurs.

    1. Denial is an unconscious mental state in which an individual, having been given certain information about themselves, others they know or the state of the world, deny the information because it frightens them. This is what happens for a ‘climate denier’, for example. For a fuller explanation, see ‘The Psychology of Denial’.

    2. The ‘Magic Rat’ is an unconscious mental state in which a person’s fear makes them incapable of grappling with certain information, even to deny it, so they completely suppress their awareness of the information immediately they receive it. For four examples of this psychological phenomenon, which President Trump exemplifies superbly, see ‘You Cannot Trap the “Magic Rat”: Trump, Congress and Geopolitics’.

    3. Delusion is an unconscious mental state in which a person is very frightened by certain information but the nature of the circumstances make it impossible to either deny or suppress awareness of the information so they are compelled to construct a delusion in relation to that particular reality in order to feel safe. For a fuller explanation, see ‘The Delusion “I Am Not Responsible”’.

    4. Projection is an unconscious mental state in which a person is very frightened of knowing a terrifying truth so they ‘defend’ themselves against becoming aware of this truth by (unconsciously) identifying a more palatable cause for their fear and then ‘defending’ themselves against this imagined ‘threat’. Political leaders in Israel do this chronically in relation to the Palestinians, for example. But the US elite also does this chronically in relation to any competing ideas in relation to political and economic organization in other countries. See ‘The Psychology of Projection in Conflict’.

    5. Lies arise from a conscious or unconscious mental state in which a person fears blame and/or punishment for telling an unpalatable truth (such as one that will self-incriminate) so they unconsciously employ tactics, including lying, to avoid this blame and punishment (and thus project the blame onto others). When people lie unconsciously, it means they are lying to themself as well; that is, constructing a lie without awareness that they are doing so. For a fuller explanation, see ‘Why Do People Lie? And Why Do Other People Believe Them?’

    I wonder who is reading these posts?

    This gentleman Mark Blaxill is IMO presenting an over view that is clear and valuable. He personally wants what I want

    1. CHOICE to decide what we want for our health (vaccinate or NOT) and laws that protect people not corporations
    2. Informed Consent based on real evolving scientific evidence (which we do not have now)
    3. A Free Market that lets the corporations take on their liability. The free market will not "accept" the slew of vaccines mandated. The corporate model needs to force us because it recognizes people don't want too many vaccinations, too soon and with a high probability of serious bad unintended consequences.
    4. Call out the swamp of incestuous relationships in our public health and the government/ corporate collusion in all policies.
