Vaccines

  1. Vaccines linked to blood disease

    This is what passes for good news for the pro-vaccine crowd: Only SOME childhood immunizations can cause a serious blood disease.

    Isn't that reassuring?

    That disease is thrombocytopenic purpura, or ITP. If blood starts shooting out your kid's nose in the days or weeks after a shot, there's a good chance he has it -- but the nose isn't the only place that might bleed.

    The condition is caused when the body's own immune system turns on itself and starts to attack -- and kill -- platelets. This in turn prevents blood from clotting -- and does it so well that you could start bleeding uncontrollably under the skin or even in the brain.

    Believe me, it's frightening and potentially deadly -- and the latest study confirms the MMR shot can trigger this harrowing disease in babies and toddlers. Since kids are supposed to get this shot twice, that's two tickets in the world's worst lottery.

    And I'll bet most parents have never even heard of this risk.

    The condition is rarer in older kids, but it's still a risk -- and researchers say it could be triggered by the hepatitis A jab in the 7-to-17 crowd and by the chickenpox and Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis) shots in kids between 11 and 17 years old.

    But wait... there's more!

    Last year, in an attempt to discredit the link between vaccines and autism, the Institute of Medicine actually admitted that immunizations can cause just about every disease and side effect you can think of.

    The Institute said there's "convincing evidence" that vaccines cause seizures, infection, body encephalitis, pneumonia, meningitis, hepatitis, and more.

    Ironically, they even admitted that vaccines can cause brain inflammation -- a condition we know has strong links to autism. (Read more here.)

    Still feel like letting your child or grandchild get poked? I didn't think so.

    P.S. What do you do when a needle-pushing maniac starts spouting off pro-vaccine propaganda? Stand your ground! Read this and find out how.

  2. OUTRAGE: Feds to test anthrax shot on kids

    U.S. panel backs anthrax experiments on children

    It's the biggest medical scandal in U.S. history... and it hasn't even happened yet!

    The feds are getting ready to pump children and possibly babies full of the anthrax vaccine -- despite the fact that this same vaccine has already been linked to nerve damage, autoimmune disorders and even DEATH in adults.

    Of course, they know this will be a hard sell to an American public that's becoming increasingly skeptical of vaccines -- so they're pushing it forward the only way they can: with ruthless fear-mongering.

    "At the end of the day, do we want to wait for an attack and give it to millions and millions of children and collect data at that time?" Daniel B. Fagbuy, chair of the National Biodefense Science Board panel that signed off on the plan, told the Washington Post.

    What utter and despicable nonsense. Anthrax is not like the flu -- it doesn't spread from person to person. Someone with anthrax can sneeze right in your face, and you wouldn't get the disease.

    The only way to get it is to come into direct contact with anthrax spores -- and when that happens, there's already a safe and highly effective way of dealing with it: antibiotics for those exposed.

    In other words, the danger is neither clear nor present -- and if that ever changes, we can deal with it easily enough when the time comes.

    But the NBSB claims we "need" (yes "NEED") to know right now if the vaccine is safe for children, if it's effective and what dose should be used.

    Think of the logistics of figuring that out. To test safety, you'd have to inject a bunch of children and babies and then see how many are left standing (or crawling).

    Then, if you have enough kids left, you can start to tinker with the dose and test for effectiveness.

    Ethically, the only option here is to test for antibodies after the shots -- but let's be realistic here: Antibodies alone won't tell the whole story. The only way to REALLY tell for sure if the vaccine actually prevents anthrax is to deliberately expose the children to anthrax -- including an unvaccinated control group.

    And if you think our government would never, ever do something like that... well, you just don't know our government very well.

  3. Read this before you even think about getting a flu shot

    It's the time of year when they'll say just about anything, no matter how absurd, to get more patients to roll up their sleeves for a flu shot -- like the claim from a new study that supposedly finds the vaccine is "60 percent effective" at preventing the flu.
  4. Deadly vaccine gets massive new push

    Hide your sons and grandsons, folks -- the day I've warned you about is finally here: A federal panel is urging docs to start giving dangerous HPV vaccines to boys.
  5. The growing army of the unvaccinated

    It's become a legal and politically correct form of discrimination: Unvaccinated kids are being booted from schools, summer camps, and even doctor's offices.
  6. Can oral sex really cause cancer?

    HPV viruses transmitted during oral sex are now supposedly the "leading cause" of all head and neck cancers, responsible for 73 percent of them -- including the throat and tongue cancers that have always been blamed (wrongly) on smoking.
  7. Mainstream admits to vaccine faults

    In the latest attempt to "prove" vaccines don't cause autism, the Institute of Medicine ended up admitting that standard childhood shots can cause just about everything else.
  8. A shot in the dark

    No matter what you've heard, the correct number of HPV vaccinations needed by any girl -- or boy, for that matter -- is ZERO.
  9. YOUNG people dying of flu? Don't believe the latest hype!

    They'll say just about anything to get you to lift your sleeve for a flu shot.
  10. Poking the pregnant

    Would you give your newborn a drug that hasn't been studied in infants? Of course you wouldn't -- and you certainly wouldn't expose a fetus to that kind of risk, either.
