Vaccine Mandates Results Don’t Safeguard Children’s Rights or Health: How Did We Get Here?

For decades, the U.S. government has made compulsory childhood vaccination one of the cornerstones of its public health policy. Outside the U.S., countries’ vaccination policies range from completely voluntary to “aggressive,” with some nations promoting vaccination but leaving the decision up to the individual, and others pushing a little harder by financially incentivizing vaccination.

Are Doctors Giving Patients Up-to-Date Vaccine Safety Information (or Any Safety Information at All)?

In 1986, Congress passed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA), a carefully crafted piece of legislation that gave vaccine manufacturers their dream come true: blanket immunity from liability for injuries resulting from childhood vaccines. Throwing a bone to the safety concerns of consumers, the Act also mandated that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) (via the CDC) develop and distribute educational materials to inform vaccine recipients and/or their parents about a given vaccine’s risks and benefits.

Why Everything You Learned About Viruses Is WRONG

Groundbreaking research indicates that most of what we believed about the purportedly deadly properties of viruses like influenza is based on nothing more than institutionalized superstition and myth.

Looking Back, Looking Forward: Cancer and Vaccines

Cancer is the leading disease-related cause of death in American children, and the rise in childhood cancers has occurred alongside dramatic expansion of the childhood vaccine schedule.

Open Letter from International Organisations to the WHO on the Issue of Vaccine Safety

To the World Health Organisation and those attending the meeting of the Global Vaccine Quality Control Laboratories Network (Rome 25th-27th, September 2018).

Infant Deaths Following Vaccination: The Numbers Don’t Lie—Or Do They?

National and international health agencies such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the World Health Organization (WHO) routinely and emphatically claim that serious adverse events following vaccination are rare. Nowhere is officialdom’s minimization of vaccine risks more apparent than in these agencies’ position on vaccine-related deaths. The WHO, for example, states that “so few deaths can plausibly be attributed to vaccines that it is hard to assess the risk statistically.”

Aluminum Salts

Aluminum salts are some of a half a dozen distinct forms of aluminum adjuvants present in vaccines, including the Pediarix DTaP-HepB-IPV combination vaccine. Recognizing the risks of neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s, numerous researchers have called for a halt to the use of aluminum salts in vaccines. In one study from France, researchers suggested re-substituting […]

Aluminum

Aluminum is one of the most abundant metals in the Earth’s crust – a chemical element now recognized as a neurotoxin, especially when the human body reaches its burden, though, according to one of the foremost experts on aluminum, Bioinorganic Chemistry professor Dr. Christopher Exley, said in the Environmental Science Processes & Impacts Journal that, […]

The Peanut Allergy Epidemic: What’s Causing It and How to Stop It

Why is the peanut allergy an epidemic that only seems to be found in western cultures? More than four million people in the United States alone are affected by peanut allergies, while there are few reported cases in India, a country where peanut is the primary ingredient in many baby food products. Where did this allergy come from, and does medicine play any kind of role in the phenomenon? After her own child had an anaphylactic reaction to peanut butter, historian Heather Fraser decided to discover the answers to these questions.

One in Nine Adverse Events Reported After DTaP Vaccination is Serious—But CDC Says, “Don’t Worry, Be Happy”

Until the 1990s, the vaccine administered to children for diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis protection was the DTP vaccine, one of the first combination vaccines ever licensed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). However, as a “whole-cell” vaccine (meaning that it contained the entire Bordetella pertussis organism rather than purified components), DTP had a significant downside—including published safety concerns dating back to the 1930s and widespread reports of neurological damage emanating from both the United States and other countries.

Precautions in Pediatric Immunization Procedures

In August 1953, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) published Precautions in Pediatric Immunization Procedures, written by Louis W. Sauer, M.D., Ph.D. The paper describes “problems” in mass-vaccinating children with aluminum-containing vaccines, due to febrile reactions, aluminum cysts at the site of injection, post-vaccination encephalopathy (brain dysfunction, disease, or disorder), paralytic poliomyelitis of the […]

The Plausible Connection between Vaccines and SIDS

In January 2018, media outlets reported the embarrassing news that children born in the United States are 76% more likely to die before their first birthday than infants born in 19 other wealthy countries. This clear-cut finding emerged from a cross-national study published in Health Affairs by medical researchers at Johns Hopkins and two other leading U.S. teaching hospitals.

“Herd Immunity”? A dishonest marketing gimmick

As a country and a society, we’ve never been anywhere close to “herd immunity” through vaccination, but where are all the epidemics? That doesn’t keep vaccine makers from using herd immunity as a weapon to guilt and scare parents. Why are we allowing “mythology to trump science”?

The Ongoing Thimerosal Travesty Needs to End

Before the invention of modern antibiotics and antiseptics, physicians experimented with mercury-containing compounds to try to stave off microbial pathogens. Thimerosal was born of those efforts. Dr. Morris Kharasch, a university chemist and Eli Lilly fellow, developed thimerosal and filed for a patent in June, 1929, describing thimerosal as an “alkyl mercuric sulfur compound” with antibacterial properties.

Meta-Analysis Madness in Vaccine-Autism Science

Inexplicably, a 2014 “meta-analysis” of published science exploring the relationship between vaccines and autism has become the evidence du jour to prove “vaccines don’t cause autism.” The inadequacies of the 2014 paper are simple to understand, and reveal much about the current environment.

FDA Acknowledged That Vaccine Technology Outpacing Ability to Predict Adverse Events

Recently, top-tier autoimmunity researchers described vaccine safety science as a “hazardous occupation.” In their view, this is because uncompromising vaccine proponents are instantly ready to mount vociferous personal attacks on anyone who raises questions about any aspect of vaccine safety, even if the questions are buttressed by impeccable, high-quality science.

The Changing Face of Vaccinology

Vaccines are “immunogenic formulations” intended to protect vaccinated individuals by inducing production of antibodies and cell-mediated immune responses to combat infectious (and sometimes noninfectious) conditions. Historians trace the roots of modern vaccinology—the science of vaccine development—to the dicey practices of smallpox inoculation and variolation that began in the 1700s.

‘Every Child By Two’ Bites the Hand That Feeds Them

A Big Pharma/CDC-funded front group, Every Child By Two, is organizing opposition to a new rule about conscience-based protection from vaccination written by the Office of Civil Rights within the Department of Health and Human Services — the CDC’s parent organization. Corruption abounds.

Vaccines as a Trigger for Early-Childhood Febrile Seizures

Febrile seizures (also called febrile convulsions) occur in young children in conjunction with fever and are the most common type of childhood seizure. Somewhere between two and five percent of American children will have at least one febrile seizure by age five, and anywhere from 23% to 43% of those will experience a recurrence.

Congress Receives Vaccine Safety Project Details Including Actions Needed for Sound Science and Transparency

The long-term health effects of our vaccine program are inadequately studied and our regulatory bodies are conflicted. Childhood health epidemics have mushroomed along with the childhood vaccine schedule.

Childhood Cancers, Autism and Environmental Toxins

The incidence of childhood cancers has been steadily rising for several decades, to such an extent that cancers in young people now have their very own day in the limelight: International Childhood Cancer Day (February 15). For American children ages one through 14, cancer is the top disease-related cause of death, second only to accidents among all causes of childhood mortality.

The Vaccine Program: Betrayal of Public Trust & Institutional Corruption—Part 6 of 7.

This recourse to authority is an attitude reminiscent of the American eugenics movement, when public health officials and academics at elite universities, embraced the pseudo-scientific tenets of eugenics, which were the basis for abhorrent discriminatory policies, including forced sterilization policies that were launched in the USA.

The Vaccine Program: Betrayal of Public Trust & Institutional Corruption—Part 5 of 7.

The internal correspondence between CDC officials and the authors of the Danish epidemiological studies reveal a culture of corruption. CDC officials are intent on shielding vaccines and the childhood vaccination schedule at any cost — including outsourcing dubious epidemiological studies that have no relevance to the vaccination exposure of U.S. children.

Bill Gates, are vaccines a “miracle” over disease and a “fantastic investment”…

Bill Gates is fond of using his bully pulpit to talk about “miracles” and “magic.” Gates has featured one or both words in nearly all of his annual wrap-up letters for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2017), most often in reference to the Gates Foundation’s outsized financial and ideological support for global vaccine programs.

Vaccine Safety Project Transcript

Hi, I’m Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and I’m the Chairman of the Children’s Health Defense and I made this video primer because in a dozen states across America today, state legislatures and governors are considering passing vaccine mandates and the facts in this video are facts that every political leader who’s trying to decide whether to vote for or against those mandates ought to understand.

Vaccine Safety Project – 6 Steps Overview

The long-term health effects of our vaccine program are inadequately studied and our regulatory bodies are conflicted. Childhood health epidemics have mushroomed along with the childhood vaccine schedule. Vaccines contain many ingredients, some of which are known to be neurotoxic, carcinogenic and cause autoimmunity. Vaccines injuries can and do happen. The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program of Health and Human Services (HHS) has awarded almost $4 billion for vaccine injuries since 1988.

Countering False Vaccine Safety Claims

We’re living in an age where parents increasingly report that their typically developing children declined cognitively and physically after receiving vaccines. Despite the sound science supporting these parent claims, government agencies and mainstream media continue issuing the now shopworn mantra that vaccines are “safe and effective” ignoring published research and even common sense that indicate otherwise.

Just How Many Shots are on the CDC Schedule?

Children’s Health Defense gets questions about the number of vaccines given to young children in America today. Different articles cite different numbers and the totals can be confusing. This article and chart are designed to clarify the vaccine schedule and explain why the numbers may not always “add up.”

It’s Time to Pay Real Attention to Children’s Health

Every year, the President of the United States issues a proclamation in honor of Child Health Day (the first Monday of October), which in turn launches Children’s Health Month. President Calvin Coolidge was the first president to dedicate a special day to children’s health, in 1928, recognizing that “the conservation and promotion of child health places upon us a grave responsibility.” The U.S. is not living up to that vital responsibility and, in fact, is failing children miserably. American children’s ability to develop and thrive is being sabotaged by an avalanche of chronic ailments, with pediatric rates of some chronic conditions among the highest in the world.
