The flu vaccine. My son came home from middle school with a note in his hand. The overall gist of the note.. "The flu-vaccine for the new H1N1 (swine flu) would be available at the school soon."
Wow, wasn't that nice of the CDC and the health department to make the flu-vaccine available.WAIT! NO!
When my son asked "What's so bad about the flu vaccine?" I decided I had to share this with him and you, my visitors.
I cannot make a decision for you or tell you what is best for yourself or your children in regards to a flu vaccine.
The Flu Vaccine - What to do?
What I am asking you to do is to make an informed decision before allowing yourself or a family member to get poked with another vaccine--including the flu vaccine.
Don't have time to read this page about the flu vaccine.... just review the videos....
Thanks to my friend Martin over at Life Enthusiast for sharing his insight on the flu vaccine and vaccines in general.

Today, as I came into the living room I caught a bit of news on the TV about the flu vaccine: the show host was grilling Dr. Andrew Wakefield about his claim that vaccinations "may" cause autism.
They had another authoritative sounding fellow practically shouting with indignation "how can Wakefield continue to claim the link in the face of all the evidence that there is none?" How is it possible that two scientists cannot agree?
We know that this year 1 in 150 children fits the autistic label, up 100 fold from only 20-some years ago. Have you noticed the rising tide of autism in our society?
Do you know someone who is living with this medical nightmare? Recently I was reminded of it quite directly, as one of my nieces announced that her child was "officially autistic". Which allegedly is a good thing, because there are government funded programs for helping these children (at least here in Canada ...) and please do not get me started on the issues around health insurance. Or do: write me your questions, and I will address them in our next newsletter.
Anyway, the point I am trying to make is this: for some reason more and more people are developing this syndrome (syndrome is medical speak for "we have no clue") that is described as spectrum disorder (medical speak for "we can't pin it down").
Spectrum disorder is the opposite of a clear definition - pregnancy is non-spectrum. You cannot be a little bit pregnant, but you can be a little bit autistic.
I think he does not tell the whole story. There is more to it than just mercury, although that is the main issue for many.
The vaccination schedule that is pushed upon our infants causes a lot of trouble, and the medical pharmaceutical insurance industry does not want to have its profits lowered by some "minimal" problems. Let me restate something I wrote before: when your body becomes overwhelmed by a viral infection, it attempts to burn it off by raising its own temperature.
The body survives, but the viruses do not. There could be other symptoms associated with your body's immune system trying to overwhelm the invaders with all kinds of unpleasant weapons. Excess fluids, mucus, phlegm, etc.
But if this situation lasts too long, we can get all kinds of damage. Seizures are the early signs of brain damage. Some of it can be reversed, but if it lasts long enough, or if the primary cause is not removed, you will end up with permanent damage.
The simulated viral infection is caused by the vaccination: it does not give you the illness itself, but it loads your immune system to such a degree that it can implode. The extreme case of it would be crib death (or SIDS).
I would like to share with you a story of one such child. He did not live long enough to develop autism. His name was Ian. If you are contemplating your child's vaccination schedule, make sure you view the Photo Gallery > Ian's Journey > Slide show. Most children do not need hepatitis-B vaccination. Or other convenience vaccinations like chicken pox.
Ian's case was more extreme than others. Most children do not react quite so strongly, but the survivors get to live with the effects for the rest of their lives. I just shudder at the prospect of thousands of children that will grow up not to be independent functioning adults.
Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carey were interviewed by Larry King not too long ago. They made an excellent explanation of the situation--whether is a flu vaccine or the childhood vaccines.
You can watch the other segments of this program to get a better understanding of the push and pull of the system.
Total toxin load is a concept introduced only recently. You can tolerate any one toxin up to a certain level. With mercury it is somewhere around 1 part per million, and the suggested toxic limit for food was set to 0.05 ppm (mercury toxicity is cumulative).
If you take too much too fast, you will cause trouble. There is such a limit for every known toxin. It you put together several such toxins at (for example) 50% of their tolerance level, you will create the famous straw that broke the camel's back.
Our industrial society experiment is not doing so well. We are introducing more and more toxic chemicals into the environment. Fire retardant in clothing, artificial fragrances in laundry soap, blue stuff for our toilets, unpronounceable stuff in plastics, rocket fuel chemicals that rain from the sky, herbicides that leech into the well water ... you get the idea.
Each generation is arriving into a more polluted terrain. Kids being born today are saddled with the toxins their parents have absorbed in their lifetime.
The "system" will try and convince you that vaccinations are a no-brainer, but you would have to be brainless to not consider the downside:
First you might like to find out what the ingredients of vaccines are before you decide to go for it. It is not a pretty list. I would not want to put it into my body, let alone my children's.
So what happens in a body that is already saddled with the toxic load that makes it weak when we introduce a toxic payload that used to be OK only a generation ago? It takes you past the breaking point.
The immune system caves, or goes into hyperdrive. Whatever you want to call it - it is trouble.
You end up with a damaged body. I should know - I live inside one of those damaged bodies myself. Fortunately my big blow landed only when I was 25 years old. It did not kill me, but it made my life difficult for many years until I figured out what to do. It was no thanks to the medical system.
Autism is just one expression of a toxin damaged body. Depending on the combination of the virus, metal, toxin, stress and genetic predisposition, you may end up with fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, vitiligo, Sjogren's, Hashimoto, lupus, scleroderma ... this list could go on. Names and symptoms are many, but the cause is shared. Toxic load, virus, stress.
In case of autism your brain is affected, and you suffer from sensory overload. You are unable to pick which signal you want to focus on - unlike the way most of us can, like reading while listening to music.
It is like being in a noisy room with too many people talking at the same time. The most common "abnormal" behaviors of autistic kids are their attempts to limit the volume of data coming in. That's their defensive mechanism.
The degree to which this damage extends will be affected by genetics (the toxic load inherited from the parents), viral load (either from vaccines or from exposure), toxin load (again from vaccines or from environmental exposure) and finally stress in the form of nutrient deficiency, emotional nurturing or lack of it, other illness, and so on. That's why we have the spectrum - some get more, some get less.
Eliminate toxins wherever and whenever you can: from your air, your water, your food, pots and plates, clothing, furniture, cars, offices. The longer you spend in toxic environments, the more you add to your burden, and the more you will pass onto your children.
Help your body get rid of the toxins it has already absorbed. It is quite capable of detoxifying itself from the poisons you absorb from the food you eat - as long as you lighten its load.
Avoid exposure to heavy metals. Mercury in vaccines, or in dental fillings is deadly. Did you watch the Robert Kennedy video? If you live down wind from coal burning power plants, consider relocating. They put a lot of mercury in the air.
Cadmium from cigarette smoke is quite something, too.
If you are going to vaccinate, delay the schedule, and spread it out. Avoid the multiple "convenient" monster shots that will overload your child's immune system past its breaking point.
