  1. New push for HPV shots is built on lies

    New nonsense over HPV vaccines

    Someone's getting desperate!

    Sales of HPV shots are plunging faster than No-bama's approval ratings as even parents who sign their kids up for every vaccine that comes down the pike turn away from this one in droves.

    So now, Big Pharma has an offer they hope you can't refuse.

    Instead of subjecting your little ones to the usual dangerous, expensive and painful three-shot sequence, bring them in for just one dangerous, expensive and painful shot.

    This comes after a failed attempt to get people to sign their kids up for two shots. What's next -- half a shot?

    Maybe they'll throw in a free toaster, too!

    On the other hand, they're absolutely right when they say one shot is about as effective as three -- because the entire three-shot sequence isn't worth a darn in the first place.

    HPV shots are often called "cervical cancer vaccines," especially by Big Pharma's in-the-tank media pals. In reality, the shot offers only SOME protection against SOME of the strains of HPV responsible for cervical cancer -- and that protection might run out in just a few years.

    In exchange for that very limited protection (if you can even call it that), your daughter or granddaughter faces some of the worst risks of any vaccine -- including devastating nervous system disorders, permanent disability and even death.

    (Get the shocking truth in this free report from the Daily Dose archives).

    HPV shots need to be taken off the market -- and pronto -- but Big Pharma and its CDC lackeys are actually pushing to expand them to boys as well as girls.

    Don't fall for it.

    The human immune system will clear HPV 90 percent of the time, no shots or drugs necessary. Boost your immune system, and that number will likely climb even higher.

    More importantly, HPV is a sexually transmitted virus. Teach your daughters (and sons, for that matter) to be responsible and abstinent. It's safe, painless, free and 100 percent effective.

    There's not a shot in the world that can promise all that.

    I'm not done with kids' health yet -- especially girls. Keep reading!

  2. Thin kid gets 'fat' letter

    'F' is for 'fat letter'

    Our schools can't even teach kids how to read, for crying out loud -- so what in the heck makes them believe they can actually tell kids how to be healthy?

    Case in point: a perfectly fit 11-year-old girl -- a star athlete on the volleyball team -- just got a letter sent home saying she's too fat and needs to lose some weight.

    No, this isn't some fat kid who happens to play volleyball. This is a kid who's probably more fit than the knuckleheaded school bureaucrat in charge of sending out "fat letters."

    Can you imagine the nerve?

    Don't get me wrong here, child obesity is one of the most serious problems facing America today -- but schools aren't part of the solution.

    They're part of the problem!

    Schools across the country are eliminating playtime and recess in favor of cramming in more touchy-feely multicultural nonsense to meet state and federal guidelines.

    Then, when the kids are finally allowed to leave their seats, they're marched to a cafeteria that serves prison-quality food.

    Actually, I take that back. Prisons almost certainly have better food, because Michelle Obama hasn't touched the prison menu.

    So forget schools. If you want a fit child or grandchild, you need to take matters into your own hands.

    First, make sure they have plenty of time outside to play under the sun. If they don't get it at school, give it to them at home -- toss 'em outside and lock the door if you have to (just be sure you take away the cellphones and gizmos and they actually run out and PLAY).

    Second, take away your kid's lunch money -- because nothing they serve at school is better than what you can make at home. Skip the processed foods and serve everything fresh.

    And third, if you get any nonsense letters from the school about your child or grandchild's health, from fat letters to vaccination propaganda, be sure to file it properly... in your shredder.

  4. Vegan author tries to manipulate kids into unhealthy lifestyle

    A new children's book on animals is a thinly veiled attempt to manipulate their emotions and turn them into unhealthy vegans.
  5. Cockroach allergies linked to asthma

    In the kind of study that can only be done in New York City, researchers gathered dust from the beds of 239 kids (128 with asthma and 111 without), all between the ages of 7 and 8, to find out just what these kids were breathing in each night.
  6. Bizarre Tamiflu instructions confound parents

    Tamiflu can be dangerous enough when you receive the correct dosage, but faulty packaging instructions leave the door wide open for an overdose that could have devastating consequences.
  7. "Malparentitis" manifested yet again - with tragic results

    Every once in a while, I write an essay for the Daily Dose about the rapid demise of responsible parenting in modern America. Some of these items really press people's buttons - as with the article I wrote back on May 10, 2005.
