Pediatrician Dr. Janet Levatin. Dr. Levatin is the pediatrician-in-residence at Dr. Sherri Tenpenny’s Integrative Medical Center, in Ohio. She will relate the experiences that made her question vaccines – made her question her medical training – and what she’s discovered in her subsequent research.

Patti Finn, vaccine attorney. Ms. Finn has put out an all points bulletin for nurses and other health care workers who are being fired, or threatened with termination, for refusing the flu shot. She’ll discuss her basic strategies and past experiences in battling such cases.

The issue of trust was the most unusual. In the recent Congressional hearing on autism, it was made abundantly clear that several of the legislators posing questions to the CDC representatives were doing so because they’ve had an increasing number of their constituents sitting in their offices, frustrated and angry because they had no doubt that vaccines had seriously damaged their children, and very tired of the refusal on the part of the entities assigned the responsibility of oversight of the nation’s health to speak directly to the issue.

We know there is a behemoth behind the vaccination paradigm. Those nurses threatened with termination are the collateral damage of requirements recently put in place by the Department of Health and Human Services, with which hospitals must comply to receive 2% of their Medicare monies. Those vaccinations – both flu and pneumonia for patients, and flu-only for employees – are listed as Prevention: Global Immunization Measures. The pressure on legislators to stifle any blossoming curiosity about a vaccine link to autism must be weighty, but if there’s anything that can counter it, it’s the threat from disgruntled constituents of loss of the next election.

So our issue of trust is unusual, indeed: we trust that a continual stream of parents through the offices of legislators, relating their stories of vaccine damage and letting it be known in no uncertain terms that they expect the good Representative or Senator to not only breathe down the neck of the CDC, but actively work to make real progress happen, may have a meaningful impact.

On the schedule for next week, and hopin’ she stays on it: Lisa Joyce Goes, autism mom, the Rev of the Thinking Mom’s Revolution, and an indomitable spirit. The messages that flow through her pen cannot be ignored.

Sunday December 2nd, 2012

Today’s episode involves two issues of trust:

OBGYN’s have begun recommending the Tdap vaccine to their patients, in addition to the flu shot they began recommending two years ago. Our guest just a few weeks ago, Eileen Dannemann, Director of the National Coalition of Organized Women, spoke to the huge increase, of over 4,000%, in miscarriages and stillbirths in 2009/2010, with the introduction of the H1N1 vaccine. In 2010 the H1N1 vaccine was added to the seasonal flu shot, and the CDC urged OBGYN’s to begin routinely administering it to all of their patients. The CDC was aware at the time of the tremendous increase in risk, percentage-wise, that had resulted from the previous year’s H1N1 vaccination campaign, yet told the OBGYN’s there had been no increase in risk. To now add the Tdap vaccine as a recommendation is insidious.

This past Thursday, November 29, 2012, the Congressional Oversight and Government Reform Committee held a hearing on autism, spurred by the announcement months back that the incidence of autism in the U.S. in children has reached 1 in 88. Almost comical, were it not for the medical tragedy unfolding before our very eyes in the epidemics of neurological and autoimmune disorders in the nation’s youth, the two CDC officials sidestepped, vaulted and otherwise detoured around half the vaccine-related questions asked of them, Dr. Coleen Boyle, in particular, hemming and hawing in such absurd fashion as to be a virtual caricature of herself. Promises were made in many instances to provide to the Committee in the future, answers relevant to the questions being asked of them in the hearing; answers which they should have had at their fingertips, and which, beyond the televised hearing, will now be generally unavailable to the public. Add to this that when asked about the participation of wanted criminal Poul Thorsen, Danish research scientist who absconded with millions of CDC-sponsored dollars, in the studies the CDC has used to announce no proven link between vaccines and autism, she responded, he was involved in only two of the several. A short while later in the same hearing, however, the Congressman who had initially asked the question held up for all to see the papers he had just been handed by one of his staffers, listing Thorsen as a researcher in twenty of the twenty-two studies. Not a comment was made to Dr. Boyle about her previous response, which at that point lay somewhere between significantly incomplete information and perjury.

The guests were:

Deanna Gromowski, mother of Ian, who died at the hands of a Hep B vaccine. Ian never left the hospital setting. He had some relatively minor problems at birth that kept him hospitalized a few days extra. On day seven, as he was about to be released, he was given the Hep B vaccine, and within hours his fatal allergic reaction had begun. His parents had been given no warning about any potential side effects; no advisement that vaccinations should not be administered if there were existing immune system compromise, as was the case with Ian.

Ian’s case worsened, and he was transferred to another hospital, where he continued to worsen, to pass away on his forty-seventh day. At the second hospital, a neonatologist told Deanna, off the record, that because of Ian’s reaction she should not vaccinate any future children. The doctor also helped Deanna write a report for submission to VAERS – the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System – but would not sign it, leaving that for Deanna. VAERS reports are typically submitted by doctors. A telltale sign of the stranglehold the industry has on information, the doctor also wanted to write up Ian’s case history, but was told by the hospital administration that she would be fired if she did.

Sallie O. Elkordy, journalist and researcher, and co-host of The Mary and Sallie Show, was our second guest. Vaccines are only one of the many issues Sallie researches – and in which she takes an active role. Sallie has written proposed legislation to ban all vaccines.

Sunday November 25th, 2012

The issue of trust was the lack of dissemination of the news of the alleviation of autism symptoms triggered by the treatment of the Lancet kids’ bowel diseases. The effect of the treatments was so momentous as to be a potentially substantial breakthrough in perspective on autism and development of recovery strategies. To varying degrees on an individual basis, the kids began sleeping through the night, after many months or years of not having done so; began not only speaking after not having spoken, but resumed the learning of vocabulary – most remarkable and heartening, in some cases using the newfound speech on a level commensurate with their growth since ceasing to speak, making it clear that they had continued growing internally, both emotionally and intellectually, despite displaying the symptoms of autism; and, poignantly, began once again recognizing and bonding emotionally with their families.

This news should have been trumpeted in headlines around the world, yet, in the now many years since the publication of the case series, we’ve seen not even a mention.

The guest was gastroenterologist Dr. Andrew Wakefield, who, together with his twelve colleagues at the Royal Free Hospital in London, a formidable team of doctors and clinicians, led by one of the world’s leading pediatric gastroenterologists, Professor Walker-Smith, examined, analyzed and treated twelve children, all of whom had autism and severe gastrointestinal problems. To this day, the parents of the twelve children stand in strong support of the treatment of their children, lauding, indeed, that for the first time in the history of their kids’ illnesses, they were treated with the respect and compassion we should expect in health care.

Dr. Wakefield discussed the focus of his new book, Waging War on the Autistic Child: The Arizona 5 and the Legacy of Baron Von Munchausen, including the intriguing possibility that autism can be passed from one sibling to another through horizontal transmission, as opposed to contagion. That vaccine viruses can be horizontally transmitted has been adequately demonstrated, scientifically. The unusual fold here would be the harboring of the vaccine virus in the gut of the transmission recipient, which is perhaps explainable by the fact that horizontal transmission of measles can take place – indeed, because of the nature of such transmission is likely to take place – orally, whereas typical societal transmission of wild measles is respiratory in nature.

Nancy and Dr. Wakefield discussed the role of antibiotics in the incidence of autism. Antibiotics, much in use, destroy not only those bacteria in the gut considered the disease pathogens, but all bacteria, the vast majority of which are beneficial and absolutely necessary for proper digestion, and therefore proper function of the immune system. The doctor described the finding in the guts of autistic children of a markedly different, atypical, population of bacteria, when compared with healthy individuals.

Nancy asked the good doctor whether, considering that information such as we were discussing, readily available, is routinely not provided in mainstream media, thus unknown in the general public, there is any hope: yes, but only if parents wake up to the facts and take up political arms against legislation requiring vaccines, which constitute a usurpation of their parental rights and the suffocation of their freedom to fulfill their parental responsibility to protect their children. The good news is that in various studies upwards of 90% of parents surveyed said their main medical concern is vaccine safety.

Incredibly, Dr. Wakefield also described the following parameters laid out by the CDC, for pre-clinical testing of the measles vaccine by manufacturers, to determine whether it’s safe to inject into children. A group of monkeys – no control group required – receives thalamic injections of pure measles antigen – directly into the thalamus, in the brain. They are then observed for 21 days, after which they are sacrificed and analyzed. If a monkey dies within 48 hours, however, it is considered uncooperative – an inferior recruit – and replaced with another monkey, one that will hopefully have more respect for the process. If more than 20% die, the entire test is considered aberrant, and a new one implemented. So goes the testing to determine whether the substance is safe to use in vaccine clinical trial – typically for injection into healthy three-to-nine year olds.

Finally, he discussed the fact that a virus is a potentially infectious agent, but does not necessarily become pathogenic until other factors come into play. He referred specifically to the plague virus a particular group of Mongolian ground squirrels harbor in their throats, but from which they never develop the disease – as it turns out, after a study implemented by the Russian government, because their diet includes certain minerals that are found in the indigenous vegetation, whereas other colonies of the same species of squirrel, in other locations, succumb to the disease, lacking the good mineral, or ingesting other, toxic, minerals instead. This phenomenon speaks directly to a core tenet of the vaccination paradigm, which considers every infectious agent a pathogen, and every pathogen, a cause of disease. Obviously, it’s not really that simple.

Dr. Wakefield also announced the creation of the Academic Integrity Fund, established to help support medical professionals who speak out about the dangers of vaccines, as well as other drugs, and the corruption revealed in the pharmaceutical industry’s attacks upon them.

Sunday November 18th, 2012

The issue of trust was: Vaccination does not equal immunization. True immunity is the result of a full immune response to natural exposure to an infectious agent. It is a two-pronged response, truly and absolutely unique to every individual – influenced by genetics, past exposures, diet and environment. Most importantly, it is simply and only the greatly reduced susceptibility to disease. It carries with it no threat of autoimmune disease, no threat of death, no threat of brain inflammation; no threat of any of the long list of potential dangers of vaccines.

The first guest was pediatrician Dr. Larry Palevsky. Still speaking to our issue of trust, he pointed out that in their vaccine inserts manufacturers clearly state that immunity is not guaranteed; that medical textbooks say that you can be protected from a disease – you can be immune – without even having an antibody, through the innate cellular response to an infectious agent – the response that is not activated by vaccination; and most importantly, that the bacteria and other infectious agents that cause the diseases against which children are vaccinated are ubiquitous – that most or all of them already inhabit children’s bodies before they receive the vaccines, rendering irrelevant a basic theory of vaccination, which is that the virtual assumption that the injection of the various disease antigens is a child’s first exposure.

Dr. Palevsky discussed the purpose of disease: to purge waste and toxins from the body. The reason a flu vaccinee might get sick after the vaccination – and indeed, many people report not only getting sick, but experiencing what they describe as the worst case of flu they’ve ever had – is that the body is working to rid itself of the toxins that were injected along with the disease antigens. So while the fever – the sickness – may be an appropriate response, it’s anything but normal. He spoke of the huge divide between doctors such as himself, who, having seen inconsistencies between what he was taught in medical school about vaccines and what he’d observed in his use of them in clinical practice had to investigate further, and the great majority of doctors, who refuse to even consider the possibility that because of the intensity of their training and indoctrination they have lost the ability to let their curiosity rouse them. Vaccines, said the doctor, destroy the integrity of the cell mediated immune system, which is crucial for the proper development of the immune system in the first few years of life.

The second guest was Zoey O’Toole, a member of the Thinking Mom’s Revolution (TMR), a group of parents each with a child who has, or has had, a developmental disability, autism in the majority of them. The group maintains a very popular blog of the same name, linked below, that has led to a book to be published in the Spring of 2013. Zoey’s posts are available along with all the others, on the blog, under Blogs by Author – her pseudonym is, the Professor.

Zoey told us of the group’s opinion, after many years of accumulated research, that both vaccines and antibiotics play a critical role in the epidemic of developmental and neurological disorders in our youth, and of what they consider a universal component of autistic children: autoimmune disorders. Thus, a child with an autoimmune disorder is possibly at higher risk of autism. Zoey also discussed her latest article on TMR, Brokenhearted in Brooklyn, in which she describes and equates the two heartbreaks: the suffering and loss from Superstorm Sandy; and the frustration and loss felt by the thinking moms when the children of family, friends and acquaintances suffer damage at the hands of vaccines, despite the moms’ persistent efforts to warn them of the consequences.

The first guest was Sheri Nakken, homeopath. Sheri has been practicing and teaching homeopathy for over a decade, after an equal number of years as a nurse, much of which time was spent in pediatric intensive care. She explained that homeopathy uses administration of minuscule amounts of substances that trigger symptoms similar to those suffered by the patient, to support the symptom display, which is in reality the immune system’s mechanism for eliminating infection or illness from the body, returning it to wellness. This works in direct contrast to allopathy, which uses drugs to suppress symptoms, despite those symptoms being the natural path to recovery.

Sheri advises that for acute illnesses – colds, flu and such – classic homeopathic remedies recommended online and in various books are fine to use, but that for chronic illnesses such as arthritis and asthma, it is necessary to consult with a homeopath, because not only is there is a long list of information the homeopath needs in order to determine the correct solution, but the dosages and specific schedule of administrations are also important.

The second guest was Eileen Dannemann, Director of the National Coalition of Organized Women. She described the infancy of the organization, which was begun as a protest of the use of depleted uranium in the Iraq war – depleted uranium, which has left thousands of Iraqi kids and adults poisoned, radioactively, as well as many of the U.S. soldiers transporting and using the weaponry. More egregiously, it’s resulted in an unknown number of tragically damaged newborns – again, both Iraqi and American.

Having learned of the use of mercury in vaccines, NCOW began a spinoff organization – the Vaccine Liberation Army – in public schools, where participating kids disseminate information to their fellow students on the realities – the dangers – of vaccination.

In 2009, the WHO announced the swine flu pandemic, and the H1N1 vaccine was introduced. In 2010, the CDC announced to the medical community that there had been no increase in problems in pregnant women resulting from the administered H1N1 shots, and urged OBGYN’s to continue the administrations. NCOW showed that the figures used by the CDC to support that announcement were deceptive – obviously purposefully – and that it was well aware that there had been a tremendous increase in risk to pregnant women, while telling OBGYN’s there had been none.

The issue of trust was the seeming inability of pediatricians – with notable exceptions – to acknowledge even blatant vaccine damage, and the consequences. While there are more macro issues of trust, this is one of the more troubling, because it’s where global edicts meet the parent head-on; where moms ultimately go for virtually all vaccine information, upon which they hang their decision to consent. Yet, even very serious adverse vaccine reactions such as the cri encephalique – the cry issued by a child experiencing an encephalitic reaction; brain inflammation – universally described as other-worldly, or bone-chilling, and obviously threatening, certainly not normal, are nevertheless labeled normal by pediatricians.

It is up to us, as parents and grandparents, to educate.

The guest was nutritional pharmacist, Ben Fuchs. Mr. Fuchs explained that the body is a self-healing organism, as long as it is given the right tools, those tools being the nutrients that are essential to the proper function of the immune system. Since the symptoms of what we call disease are literally the working of the immune system in its elimination of toxicity or illness as it brings the body back to wellness, suppression of those symptoms is counterproductive to recovery, and that is exactly what allopathic medicine attempts to do – suppress the symptoms.

In many cases, rather than being sick, we are, in a real sense, starving, even while the problem of obesity worsens; the fast food, processed food, packaged food diet denies us essential nutrients, and even a carefully constructed diet can be deficient, because of the depleted condition of the much of cropland soil. Not receiving the vitamins, minerals and enzymes it needs, the body simply continues to crave more food.

The steps in natural treatment of disease are to regulate the diet, by eliminating any foods that disturb digestion and adding nutrient-rich items; eliminate stress, on every level – mental, emotional and physical – which also greatly affects the functionality of the immune system; and determine which nutritional supplements will most directly aid your immune system in eliminating the respective disease, depending on the type of illness and the specific organs or areas of the body affected.

Ben Fuchs’ website:
http://www.BrightsideBen.com

The issue of trust was the lack of fulfillment of the basic medical ethic of informed consent in the administration of vaccines. Informed consent is the first tenet of the Nuremberg Code, and mandates that any and all negative consequences of an experimental medical procedure be communicated to the subject, or patient, and consent be obtained before administering the procedure. The responsibility for the quality of the consent “rests upon each individual who initiates, directs, or engages in the experiment. It is a personal duty and responsibility which may not be delegated to another with impunity.”

Vaccines are experimental. When vaccine manufacturers apply for license of their products, they certify they are safe. Safe, however, in the vaccine industry, literally does not mean, does not harm. It means, the benefits outweigh the risks – but at the time of application for license, the true extent of the risks is not known. The National Institute of Health defines the final stage of clinical trial – Phase IV – as the collection of data after licensure, during the years of mass administration to the public, and with good reason: the subjects of trials conducted by the vaccine manufacturers are hand picked – that is, their health status is well known – so how vaccines will affect the general population is unknown; and more importantly, the manufacturers’ trials are relatively brief, comprising only a few weeks of close monitoring, yet it is well known that vaccine damage can occur weeks, months and even years after the fact of the vaccination.

Thus, it is critical that full information be provided every potential vaccinee, but that mandate is never fulfilled. At best, a cursory document, called a VIS – Vaccine Information Sheet – is provided the patient, but that sheet is anything but fully informative. On a daily basis, hundreds, if not thousands, of children and adults alike are vaccinated, with little or no knowledge of the injury that may result.

The Vaccine Myth: An Issue of Trust

October 28, 2012 Broadcast

The guest was  Christina England, journalist and vaccine researcher, whose many articles in TheAmericanChronicle.com and VacTruth.com speak to a myriad of vaccine issues, with a focus on false allegations of child abuse. Ms. England explained her route to journalism: after repeated attempts to find medical help for her two adopted special needs children, both of whom had been diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum, and one of whom she’d discovered had suffered at the hands of an MMR vaccine, she was falsely accused of Munchausen’s by Proxy as a result. She was ultimately cleared of all the accusations, and that was the point at which the Special Service in the UK told her, as a threat, never to reveal to the media what she had learned during her contest with the authorities over the Munchausen’s by Proxy allegations; the false documents and other corrupt practices that had been used against her. So instead of going to the media, Ms. England became the media, completing a degree in journalism, and has been writing ever since, about the dangers of vaccines, and false allegations of child abuse, which cases she also helps defend.

Access to Ms. England’s articles:

Christina England is also the co-author, with Dr. Harold Buttram, of Shaken Baby Syndrome or Vaccine Induced Encephalitis – Are Parents Being Falsely Accused?, available on Amazon.

The issue of trust was the AAP vaccine refusal form, the wording of which lacks any true substance as an advisory, because it misinforms, with no mention of the sometimes catastrophic consequences of vaccinating, and no mention that vaccinated children can and do develop the very disease against which they’d been vaccinated, and can transmit the disease to others. Then, to bring the misrepresentation to its absurd, self-incriminating climax, this statement:

I know that failure to follow the recommendations about vaccination may endanger the health or life of my child and others with which my child might come into contact.

Obviously, no parent should ever sign this form as it is written. A few well-chosen word changes, deletions and additions will morph the message into the truth; initial the changes and have the doctor’s staff do likewise before signing. That is the point at which the pediatrician may notify you that since you choose to not vaccinate and will not incriminate yourself by signing the Refusal Form as written, he will no longer be able to treat your family. That is also the point at which pediatricians have made themselves not only useless, but dangerous. Opt for a general practitioner, if you must stay with allopathy. Many instead choose holistic health care – naturopathy, homeopathy, chiropractic – and learn to treat disease at home, discovering in the process that the fear of disease instilled in us by the vaccine industry is totally overblown and unwarranted.
