FOLLOWING THE MONEY

I’m really not blindly anti-vaccine, but there can be too much of a good thing. Over the last couple of decades, as we’ve seen the vaccine schedule expanded to include more and more shots ⎯ and earlier and earlier sat that ⎯ we’ve seen a steady decline in overall health. (Okay, I don’t really have any stats to back that up; I’m relying mostly on the observations of heath-care professionals I know who tell me they are seeing more and more autoimmune problems in younger and younger people.) Isn’t that the opposite of what we should be seeing?

The amazing expansion of the vaccine schedule runs counter to the constant pronouncements from the defenders of the vaccine program (who have become known as “the Offiteers”) that pharmaceutical companies really don’t make much in the way of profits from vaccines. Why would the companies go to great lengths to develop new vaccines and get formal approval for them? How can they afford to pay such tremendous royalties to patent holders if they aren’t making money.

Barbara Loe Fisher (founder of the National Vaccine Information Center) addressed those questions in a recent post on her blog. The post, “Politics, Profits & Pandemic Fear Mongering,” could not be more timely. With everyone going into panic mode over the outbreak of swine flu, thee is a legitimate fear that our government might repeat the mistakes of the last swine flu panic back in the seventies. The feared pandemic never appeared, and the emergency vaccination program was nothing short of disastrous in terms of the number of deaths and diagnosed cases of Guillen-Barre.

Who’s in charge of our public health policy? Who influences how that policy is depicted in the mainstream media? All one has to do is follow the money.

I am not sure who started the idea that vaccines aren't profit centers for the companies that make them but I have to laugh every time that I hear it. That once may have been true but it certainly isn't true anymore.

If you look at the SEC fillings of drug companies they tend to give approximate sales figures - for example the figure for 2008 for Merck was about 6 billion.

That isn't the same as profit but it still is a staggering number and more than enough to cause problems.

My mother is a nurse and while she believes that vaccines do save lives, she also believes that our vaccine program is out of control. She said back in the day when Jenner invented the smallpox vaccine and Salk invented the polio vaccine, that she really believes that their motives were altruistic and they wanted to stop death and suffering (in fact Salk never patented his vaccine).

But now? She says she no longer believes it is all about altruism and the good of society in this day and age. She says there are just too many recommendations on the current vax schedule that are totally ludicrous (i.e. Hep B at birth, chickenpox, rotavirus flu shots for pregnant women) for her to believe that these people are still operating off purely altruistic motives.

Mercury is Toxic to Your Health - Period!

One of the renowned experts on Mercury Toxicity is Dr. Bruce Dooley. Here are excerpts from a letter that Dr. Dooley wrote to prepare an audience of health-seeking, health conscious individuals that are hungry for not just the knowledge, but the solutions. See bottom for link to his online webinar presetation.

Dr. Dooley includes a powerful segment on how Mercury affects Children, before and after they are born!

"For the past 12 years I have been using the latest advances in the field of medicine called Complementary and Alternative Medicine."

He says that "problems like headaches, memory loss, nervousness, depression, insomnia, mood swings that would start out as irritability and end up in an uncontrollable rage. By scouring medical literature I finally found the common thread to these baffling ailments: Mercury poisonin`g. It’s so easy to be exposed to this toxic metal today..."

"I have witnessed firsthand what a terrible health problem mercury is, and I now dedicate a large portion of my medical practice to testing people for it and helping them to remove this poison from their bodies."

"After treating thousands of patients, the same question kept nagging at me: WHY are people getting sick and am I really helping them to PREVENT it and stay HEALTHY?"

"I no longer was satisfied following the conventional medical route of providing prescription medications to patients with chronic illnesses, since they didn’t CURE the condition, but merely suppressed the symptoms. I realized that symptoms such as fatigue and poor vitality are warning signs of a system out of balance, yet nothing from my medical school training – no prescription medication or surgery – would help restore that balance."

"I believe my father was killed by mercury. A brilliant, charming and physically fit physician and father of eight, he had a mouth full of “silver” amalgams and ate fish several times a week. By the age of 65 his memory was fading rapidly and four years later had rapidly progressed to a debilitating “unknown” dementia. Medical scans showed that his brain’s frontal lobe had shriveled, and he died at 69 from pneumonia. If only I had known about mercury poisoning then."

"So getting the word out—and the mercury out—has become a personal thing for me. It is my vision to see the world’s population mercury free and healthy. Too many millions of people have poor energy, chronic diseases and mental and emotional problems and are unknowingly burdened by mercury, which is a terrible byproduct of “modern” life. As a physician, my mission is to help restore people’s health, energy, and reason for living by offering education, and a simple and effective way to test and treat the Quicksilver Beast. I couldn’t think of a better way to honor my father…"
