NationalPost: At rare trial of alleged vaccine side effects, parents say H1N1 flu shot killed 5-year-old daughter
I can't imagine, and don't want to because it's too horrific, the tragedy of losing one's child after doing everything recommended by the health system to keep her safe.
The controversy over the H1N1 flu shot in the comments section of the above article is a sad example of how parents' underlying fears for their own health and that of their children as a direct result of persistent "health" propaganda (I covered this anxiety syndrome in an earlier post) causes them to be brutal in their responses to "anti-vaxxers".
This is just one more way that so-called science divides populations into factions, so that they fight with one another rather than against government dictates. They have characterized those who question the safety and efficacy of vaccines (and the true nature of "climate") as menaces to society as a whole.
One of things you'll see repeatedly in discussions such as this is the assertion that, because of the wonders of science, people are living longer nowadays. But are they?
Meanwhile, young couples are bringing fewer children into the world, which can only help to justify increased influxes of immigrant workers - another huge bugaboo for conservative thinkers.
I hate to say this, but money and downright snobbery seem to play a huge part in couples delaying pregnancies:
GlobalNews: Here’s why Canadians are having fewer children
In my day (I love saying that) we never thought to add up how much our children cost us in dollars. We would do without ourselves, if necessary, to see that our kids had everything they needed and wanted. But it seems that young couples nowadays are not "do without" people.
It's also important to assess whether or not humans are indeed living longer due to the wonders of science. Would you believe the statistics say not!
BBC: Do we really live longer than our ancestors?
There have always been some people who've lived for amazingly long years. Even when there were no vaccines.
And, lest people assume that childhood vaccines were responsible for getting kids past the "dangerous childhood years", we should remember two things: There were no vaccines in the Victorian era, yet the lifespan was similar to Canada's own today.
One has to wonder, are we making the so-called dangerous child years even more dangerous with vaccines and other pharmaceutical products and chemicals?
Childhood illnesses are on the rise! Just do a search for "rise in childhood diseases". All sorts of allergies, for instance; mental illness even at age 2 and up; asthma, diabetes, and so on. GMO foods have been guardedly suggested, but vaccines are not even considered.
So, despite the impression that believers struggle to promote -- that children are healthier and people are living longer due to vaccines and other pharmaceutical miracles -- Canada's overall stats are not significantly different from the Victorian ones.
(Canada also ranks 7th in "world happiness", whatever that is.)
Here's a woman who died early this year at the age of 114. She most certainly did not have childhood vaccines, and her longevity was attributed to diet and exercise, not to mention kindness toward others - something you don't often see nowadays in this self-centred era.
There have always been a certain number of people who unaccountably lived far longer than the rest of their various country folk, and I imagine they were a pretty self-sufficient lot.
People are too ready now to trust "authority" and there really is no such thing. Go to one doctor, get one diagnosis. Go to another ... well, we've all been there.
Not to mention iatrogenic illnesses. See this CTV video about instruments left inside surgery patients. With health, as with any other transaction, it's Buyer Beware, and that goes for vaccines as well.
Lots of doctors don't have their own children vaccinated, but there is so much pressure on them they'd rather keep as quiet as possible about it. Here's one who has not vaccinated his 2-year-old daughter. And even if all the doctors in the world agreed that vaccines were entirely safe and effective, I would still recall the standard mom advice: If all the other kids jumped off the roof, would you do that too?
There's another big question not being answered: Why do so many children have allergies and neurological problems? Video
And yet another question: Pro-Life? You Can’t be Pro-Vaccine (PDF)
I'm personally pro-choice, but I find this almost cannibalistic. Shades of Soylent Green!
For whatever it may be worth to you, read:
Doctors Against Vaccines – Hear From Those Who Have Done the Research
More Doctors Against Vaccines
The number of doctors listed does not accurately represent the true numbers of doctors who privately agree with them. And I am here to say that vaccines and pharmaceuticals do not cause longevity.
I am now in my 80th year and no childhood vaccines existed in my first 5 years. When I was a bit older, there was the smallpox vaccine (to which I had a bad reaction) long after smallpox had disappeared from the scene (which made no sense at all).
I never had measles, mumps, diphtheria, whooping cough, polio, any of those things that they developed vaccines against. Nor did I ever know personally anyone who died from those diseases, though I was acquainted with a lot of people from school and church, and in my neighbourhood.
Yet that was the beginning of vaccine mania, and the changes in medical care from common sense to pharmaceuticals and lucrative surgeries, the latter having caused me to avoid doctors entirely since 1996.
A couple of days ago a 67-year-old fairly new acquaintance expressed shock upon learning how old I am. She had assumed I was around her age. Turns out she's also a believer in pharmaceuticals and regular visits to the doctor, so I can only hope that all goes well for her as she ages further.
I have never had a flu shot and don't intend ever to have one, nor have I had flu since the early 1980's. I do have to live with several autoimmune problems, which I'm fairly convinced has something to do with our contaminated environment because these types of ailments are on the increase in North America. I'm thankful there is not yet a vaccine for that, nor do I believe that pharmaceuticals are the answer. In fact, avoidance of chemicals wherever possible and attention to diet and exercise are, in most cases, the answer to illness.
Everything else flies in the face of Mother Nature, who I'm sure by now is pretty exasperated by the whole human race.
I may be some kind of an anomaly in some people's minds, but belief is a powerful thing, and one should never underestimate it. Fear alone can make you sick, and fear for your children's health can make them sick, vaccine or no vaccine.
