Vaxxed Out of Existence.


The first thing I want to say is that I have no idea whether or not certain vaccinations cause Autism.  The argument on both sides is so heated and filled with controversy that it is hard to discern what is truth and what is fiction.  What is cover-up and what is revelation.

But here is what I do believe:  The American people have been duped into believing that every disease and every childhood ailment, no matter how basal, are necessary and shield the general public from a more dangerous epidemic.

If you are old enough, you might remember getting the measles, the mumps, chicken pox.  It was a right of passage for a child.  It was a day, or three, off from school.  It was getting nurtured from our parents and doted on.  It was a chance for real parenting.

Then, suddenly, we were told by the Medical Community that there was a shot, a vaccine, that could remove the threat of sickness.  It would artificially protect our immune system from getting sick.  In 1962 Alexander Langmuir stated that 90% of the population in America had been infected with the measles by the age of 15 [1].  According to the article in Oxford Journals, prior to the introduction of the measles vaccine, mortality rates had already declined significantly due to an increase in nutrition and health care.  However, the article hints at what might be the biggest reason for the vaccine: Cost.

The average cost of a hospital stay for a child with measles is close to 10,000 dollars [2]

Then, between the years of 1989 and 1991, a resurgence of measles caused a mini epidemic that resulted in 55,000 cases and 122 deaths.  The problem though is that it was not because of unvaccinated children, it was actually due, in part, to children that had received a dose of the vaccine.  Which invites the question, why vaccinate?  Especially in light of a decrease in deaths and debilitating effects years before the vaccine was introduced.

Logic might suggest that it is more of a vaccine of convenience.  The necessity for a two income family just to afford housing, food, and electricity cut into the time allowed for parenting and nurturing.

This in conjecture, but perhaps the erosion of the family is the greatest reason that vaccines have become so commonplace.  It is convenient.  It means the possibility of fewer interruptions to the daily routine.

As Americans, as humans, we have become so accustomed to technology and the benefits that it has on our lives that we have taken a back seat on survival, believing that the government has taken care of that for us.

Okay, I get it, there are a lot of crazy conspiracies running around.  Some of them so outlandish, that they have followings in the millions.  But the biggest reason they exist, in my opinion, is that we have put too much responsibility for our health and safety on our government, that we fear contradicting it because we may have to figure things out for ourselves.

Are there good medications, good Vaccines?  Absolutely.  Are they all necessary?  That is a question that should be answered by the individual.  Do the research yourself, go to reputable sources for your statistics.  One thing you will find is that the origins of the statistic for which you are searching often has a base cause somewhere other than with an unvaccinated person.

I admit, I am fully vaccinated.  My parents made that choice by sending me to school where it was mandatory.  Luckily, so far, I have seen no long-term problems from it…as far as I know.  But for me, I do not trust every report that is issued by the government by its agencies.  Why you ask?  Well, if you are asking why, then you don’t pay attention to our government.

We are made to feel like rebels, or conspiracy theorists, because we fight for our rights to be heard.  But don’t stop fighting, just remember that you can explain something to someone, but you can’t understand it for them.
