Childhood vaccinations are the responsibility of parents not health professionals who have a vested interest in selling as many shots as possible.
The health professionals who almost worship vaccines tell us that without vaccinations infectious diseases would have almost wiped out the world; however that is not true. Dr. Harold E. Buttram reported that the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company reveals that from 1911 to 1935 the four leading causes of childhood deaths from infectious diseases in America were diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough), scarlet fever, and measles. Then by 1945, “the combined death rates from these causes had declined by 95 percent, before the implementation of mass immunization programs.” It seems the greatest factors in this decline were “sanitation through public health measures, improved nutrition, better housing with less crowded conditions and the introduction of antibiotics.” That shoots down their best argument.
Some health care professionals charge that the vaccination of very young children has been the cause of many health problems in the past 20 to 30 years, with the mumps, measles and rubella (MMR) and the diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus (DPT) vaccinations especially dangerous. I would not consider vaccinating my child if he/she were sick or would I permit multiple shots at one time. Nor would I permit shots near birth or shots close together. Often, the reaction is far worse than the disease. That is the least I would do and I demand that my critics explain how such caution might harm a child. Delay is better than possible disease, damage or death!
This issue has not been settled but it could be if the medical establishment would only do some long term studies; but they refuse to do so. Dr. Harold Buttrum declared, “There are NO (NONE) long term (months or years) safety studies on any vaccination or immunization.” So, why not? If medical people are so sure of their position, then let them prove it with long term studies.
Could the intractable reluctance of the medical establishment to do the necessary studies be because of ego, stubbornness, pride, and money? Especially the money!
Parents should remember that if they agree to a vaccination the doctor is required by law to provide information regarding the vaccine benefits and risks before the shot. He also must keep a permanent record of all vaccinations given, and that information must include the manufacturer’s name and lot number.
If your doctor refuses to report a reaction following vaccination, you have the right to report to the government yourself. If your child is left permanently brain damaged or dies as a result of a vaccine reaction, you may be entitled to benefits under the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986.
If you express concern about vaccinations your doctor will probably assure you that “the doctor knows best,” and this is usually affirmed in an arrogant and authoritative fashion. If that happens to you when you express concern for your child, you must take the position that if you are going to err it should be on the side of caution since your child’s life is in the balance. Remind your physician that a study done at a Boston hospital revealed that 36% of hospital admissions were the result of physicians’ blunders! Then, if you are convinced that it is useless to discuss with him any further your concern of vaccinations you might inform him of the disparaging, disgraceful, and deadly facts relating to the care of patients by physicians and hospitals.
Even if your physician is competent, the hospital has a 67% chance of misdiagnosis according to JAMA. Further remind him or her that one-third of U.S. hospitals admit that they give patients the wrong blood! Then smile and remind your physician that surgeons have been known to amputate the wrong leg, remove the wrong kidney and come to surgery drunk. Your anesthesiologist will probably not be drunk but he may sleep during your surgery! As you leave his office inform him that the Harvard School of Public Health reported on ABC that about 1.3 million people per year are injured because of hospital treatment with about 180,000 dying as a result! As you close the door, suggest that some physicians are as dangerous as Bonny and Clyde! Exit to look for another physician.
If your doctor refuses to talk intelligently with you about vaccines, then fire him or her. Monitor your child closely after a vaccination. Call your doctor if you suspect a reaction to a shot and if your doctor is not concerned, take your child to an emergency room.
You, not the medical establishment, are in control–for now.

Fact, Fraud or Faith?

Only an uninformed fanatic says that evolution or creation can be proved scientifically. Christians believe in creationism because we believe in the veracity of the Bible but we also have scientific evidence to support our position. In every debate I’ve had with evolutionary scientists, the arrogant, asinine accusation is made, “Well, evolution is scientific while creationism is religion.” Evolution is about as scientific as a voodoo rooster plucking ceremony in Haiti. Almost.
