Medical Myopia

 

by Meryl Dorey

I was driving home from the post office just after 4 PM today when my mobile phone rang. I didn’t recognize the number so I almost didn’t answer it but curiosity got the better of me and when I picked up the phone, I discovered t37255797_shat it was a journalist from the Medical Observer.

Was he calling to ask questions about why so many parents are up in arms over the government’s discriminatory and illegal “No Jab, No Pay” policy that is supposedly being introduced in January (though the legislation hasn’t been tabled in Parliament as of yet)?

No.

Was he interested in finding out why the health of Australia’s children is now worse than it’s ever been, with nearly 50% of our kids under the age of 12 being treated for at least one chronic condition and childhood cancers, diabetes, asthma, autism, ADD and other autoimmune conditions soaring to new records every year?

No.

Was he calling to ask about why the Australian government is still recommending HPV vaccines when Japan withdrew their recommendations over a year ago due to a large number of serious reactions with France, Spain and other European countries also asking whether they should continue pushing this dangerous shot?

No.

Or, while we are on the subject of the HPV vaccine, was he wanting to discuss the dozens of young women in Mexico who had seizures immediately after getting this shot – and the fact that those seizures were caught on video and shared around the world.

No.

The reason he was calling – and the reason why I had to laugh when he started talking (nothing personal – I’m sure he is a lovely man), was because at a time when there are so many pressing issues surrounding vaccinations today, the Medical Observer wanted to know why I was no longer the Public Officer of the AVN.

I told him that this is not a story. And if he wanted to write a REAL story, how about covering the issue of Dr William Thompson, the CDC Whistleblower, who has admitted to colluding with his superiors at the Centers for Disease Control in order to hide a strong, scientifically-proven link between vaccinations and autism – especially in black children.*

You may find this hard to believe, but he had never heard of William Thompson!

When I told him that there would be a Congressional Inquiry into this crime and that Congressman Bill Posey had been given thousands of pages proving the cover-up, the journo said that this was no doubt an important issue but, why was I no longer on the AVN Committee and were there any hard feelings between myself and Tasha David, the AVN’s President?

I again reiterated that this was NOT a story! I fully supported the AVN and was simply retired from the committee after more than 20 years as its head. But how about writing an article about vaccine injuries?

Every day in Australia and around the world, children were being killed or injured by vaccines. They needed a voice in the media. The Medical Observer should BE that voice. They should be covering these issues instead of chasing or manufacturing rubbish articles about nothing at all.

He then asked me about the AVN’s finances and whether I was concerned about an apparent drop in membership.

I told him that any questions about money should be addressed to the AVN’s President or their Treasurer. I am just a member. You wouldn’t just scroll through the membership of the Liberal party and call random members to ask them whether they were concerned about the Liberal party’s spending, would you?

Yes, he told me, he would!

So, I realised at this point that trying to get him interested in covering a real story or trying to get the Medical Observer to take this issue, our children and our rights seriously was, sadly, a lost cause.

One day, in the not too distant future, when the evidence of vaccine risks and ineffectiveness becomes so overwhelming, even the Australian media can no longer suppress or ignore it, this journalist might look back on our conversation and wonder why he didn’t choose to report the real news instead of the fluff.

At that point, regardless of what he has done in the intervening months, he will never be able to say that he didn’t know or that he was just following orders.

Vaccination During Pregnancy – Untested, Unsafe and Recommended by the CDC

By Benjamin Rush

Below is a table of vaccinations which are recommended before, during and after pregnancy for American women. The table is from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) -the corrupt American Government body that has been implicated in colluding with pharmaceutical interests to cover up and suppress information on the link between vaccinations and autism (amongst other things).*

Please note that NONE of these vaccines have ever been tested for safety during pregnancy  and that since the US Government began recommending vaccines to pregnant women, the number of fetal deaths has exceeded postnatal deaths the first time ever. (Fetal and Perinatal Mortality: United States, 2013)

Australia also started to recommend vaccinations during pregnancy – even during the first trimester when moms are supposed to avoid exposure to any and all toxins and drugs.

Are millions of children being killed and permanently injured in the womb where their parents will never suspect the involvement of vaccines? Will children who are born with multiple birth defects and congenital issues or being miscarried hours or days after their mothers were vaccinated ever be counted in the official toll of vaccine victims?

If you know of someone who is currently pregnant or is thinking of getting pregnant sometime in the future, please share this information with them.

If you are a pediatrician, obstetrician or other health professional, please become informed about the risks of the procedures you recommend. Primum non nocere – Firstly, do no harm.pregnancy chart

There is nothing trendy about not vaccinating your child…

by Tasha David

Not vaccinating your child is not something you take lightly as a parent. The bombardment of vaccine propaganda is in your face everywhere you look and some are scared to even let others know that they don’t vaccinate because they don’t want their children to face the stigma of going against the crowd. Going to the doctors can be a battleground where you are berated and belittled for not conforming to the status quo.  The simple act of going to the emergency room because your child broke their arm always starts with the question “Is your child up to date on their immunisations?” and you think to yourself – here we go again!

So there really is nothing trendy about not vaccinating your child…

little-rock-segregationBut do you want to know what IS really trendy right now? It is the demonising and current witch-hunt against parents who choose not to vaccinate their children.

The world has become a bully’s wonderland right now. You can harass and be hateful towards ‘anti vax’ parents and no one will even consider it to be bullying.

You can tell them how crap they are as parents!

You can tell them to go and take their disease-ridden brats away from your [fully-vaccinated] children!

You can tell them how they are stupid, selfish, moronic, irresponsible, tin foil hat wearing, rabid ‘anti vaxxers’ who are child abusers and whose children should be taken away from them!

You can even tell them that you hope that they and their children die to clean out the stupid from the gene pool!

No one will even pull you up for those cruel and despicable comments because ‘anti vaxxers’ deserve it, right?

WRONG!

No loving parent and especially their children, deserves to be treated like lepers and outcasts. Whether they vaccinate or not is irrelevant, and frankly I am astounded at the hate speech that has been allowed to flow freely since the Disneyland measles outbreak. (for example, Jail ‘anti-vax’ parents and Measles Can Kill, And It’s Spreading. Sue Parents Who Didn’t Vaccinate? Absolutely

You cannot shame a parent in to harming their child and yet, that is what you are asking us (especially the parents of vaccine injured children) to do.

All the bullying, vilifying, suing, incarcerating or (completely illegally) making their names and addresses publicly available to the world, will not change a thing.  By the way Joe Matthews (the author of the afore-mentioned article), the whole sticker idea to show who the outcasts of society are? That’s already been done before. The last time, they were made to wear yellow stars. I guess tyrannical minds think alike.

It also shows how very little you know about parents who choose not to vaccinate. Let’s get one thing straight. I do not choose to inject pharmaceutical products in to my children’s bodies anymore because vaccines hurt them and caused not just “a week of hell”, but a lifetime of hellish challenges.

I don’t blame others for my children’s health issues, I realise that we are all just trying to do the best we can for our children. Anyway I am too busy trying to heal my children’s bodies to run around pointing fingers.

My choice to not be informed about what I was injecting in to my babies caused them numerous health issues and robbed three of my children of ever being able to live an independent life, of being able to fall in love or able to have a family of their own and those facts will haunt me for the rest of my days.

6579263459_f7437cede5_zThere is nothing in this world you could do to me to make me forget this no matter how much I want to, because you cannot unsee the damage done to your child.

I cannot unsee having to search for my child when she absconded from my parent’s back yard and then find her running down the middle of a busy street surrounded by cars beeping their horns and yelling at her to get off the road, because she has no sense of danger.

I cannot unsee waking up in the early hours of the morning to see my other daughter covered head to toe in her own faeces that she ate while smearing it all over the walls.

I cannot unsee my son trying so hard to speak so that he could play with the other children in the playground but all he could do was scream, till they ran away.

I cannot unsee the vast difference in health between my vaccinated and unvaccinated children and not know that it is my fault.

There is nothing you could do that would ever make me vaccinate them again. I would rather die than see them be hurt. Luckily I have found that there is a better way to raise healthy children and my children have thrived because of it. It is called taking responsibility for the health of your own children. Learning how to naturally support and boost their immune systems and not expect other parents to put their healthy children at risk of injury or death just because you believe that that will protect yours.

You want to know the most important reason why I and many other parents don’t vaccinate their child? We do it because we love them, just like you love your child and no amount of legislation or shaming tactics will ever overcome that.

Vaccine Autism cover-up?

A whistle-blower seems to have come out about The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) conducting scientific fraud and cover-up over the relationship between vaccines and autism. It states that risk factors for association between the MMR vaccineand autism are being under 3 years old, being a boy, and being of African descent.

MMR coverup

Will this report turn out to be true? If so I wonder why our health authorities in Australia haven’t been active in ensuring that the link hasn’t been ruled out? Time will tell.

What Suburban Housewives Do While Their Men Are Away! It will leave you breathless! | The Thinking Moms Revolution

The Thinking Mom’s Revolution is one of the best blogs around on what autism is like for so many parents these days. It wasn’t all that long ago that autism was considered to be a rare condition. Nowadays however, it seems to be the rule rather than the exception that someone in your family will be diagnosed as autistic.

Autism is most often caused by environmental factors – vaccines and antibiotics among them. So though drug companies are responsible for causing our current epidemic, they will not help when it’s your family that’s been affected – you are on your own.

This article is a plea for understanding and compassion and a wake-up call to those who have been sleeping through the autism emergency which is getting worse every year. Please read it and remember, the next time you meet someone whose family has been touched by autism, be kind, be helpful (if at all possible) and be THERE for them. None of us can parent alone – and parenting a special-needs child is all the more reason why help and friendship will be needed and should be offered.

Why I Don’t… | The Thinking Moms’ Revolution

These mums have courage and intelligence to spare and they regularly show, through their blog, just why they are fighting so hard for their kids. Today, the mother of an autistic child discusses why she doesn’t care about what so many in today’s shallow society think is vitally important (but isn’t). And what really IS important in her world. A world shared – according to the latest figures – by the families of 1 child in 20. One in twenty. Keep that in mind as you go through your daily life. One child in twenty in the US is now on the autistic spectrum. When will the government and medical community admit that vaccinations and antibiotics have been largely responsible for this epidemic?

Autism World – The Upcoming Mark Geier Appeal… Part One – What’s at Stake Here?.

There are several US cases going on right now that are significant to the Autism World, one of which is the Mark Geier versus the Maryland Medical Board, a case which is simply waiting out the required timing to be filed in a real court.  Since the Autism World situation is without doubt, a microcosm of what is happening in US, and world, health care, the case is also of importance to the North American Health Freedom Movement.

Kim Stagliano: Autism Sucks and Then We Die

Kim Stagliano: Autism Sucks and Then We Die.

The reality – Kim Stagliano has 3 girls – all of them with severe autism. She has just filled in a probate form so she can continue to make medical and life decisions for her eldest child when she turns 18 because her daughter will never make those decisions for herself. This was a child who could count and read before the age of two! What changed? What changes with so many of the 1 in 88 children with autism – the 1 in 54 boys.

We need to stop suppressing information on the link between the autism epidemic and the explosion in the number of doses our children are receiving.

Mia and Mom!

False balance or suppression of a scientific debate?

Last night, ABC’s Media Watch program, presented a hatchet job piece called False Balance Leads to Confusion, attacking WIN Television for presenting both sides of the vaccination issue in a recent report on a measles outbreak in NSW. Because the interview contained information from both a medical community spokesperson and myself, representing the Australian Vaccination Network, Inc. (AVN), Media Watch called it a “false balance”. They called the AVN’s information “baloney” and said that the AVN’s data, much of which is  sourced from peer-reviewed medical journals, is “bulldust”

To WIN Television’s credit, their spokesperson said:

The story presented was accurate, fair and balanced and presented the views of the medical practitioners and of the choice groups.
— Shirley Brown, Group Business Director, 4th September, 2012

What proof did Jonathan Holmes, the current host of Media Watch, provide for his assertions about the quality and veracity of the AVN’s information? Absolutely none.

Did he reference any of the peer-reviewed articles linking vaccines with autism and minimal brain damage or mention the cases where courts listened to expert testimony and paid compensation to families whose children developed autism as a result of vaccination? No.

In fact, I submit that this program has breached the ABC’s own Charter and Code of Practice. This program represents reporting of the lowest standard since it attacks a group providing scientific information without providing any evidence that this information is in any way incorrect. In addition, against all tenets of responsible journalism, it openly asks for one side of a scientific debate to be censored.

It is not the role of the ABC or any other media outlet to tell people what they can and cannot know about a scientific issue. One might have thought that a program such as Media Watch would have supported open access to information. One could be excused for believing that they would have supported healthcare consumers in their search for balanced information.

The AVN has never asked for a stifling or suppression of any information in this nearly 250-year old debate. In fact, we have openly asked for more public debate, leaving the final choice up to those who are the real stakeholders in this issue – the parents of Australia’s children. To knowingly withhold information on an issue of science which is far from proven (since vaccines are never scientifically tested using real control groups and true placebos – the gold-standard of medical testing) is not only wrong – it is unscientific. The medical community itself considers vaccination to be a controversial issue with tens of thousands of medical professionals worldwide questioning the evidence base for vaccine safety and effectiveness.

Organisations such as the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, the International Medical Council on Vaccination and other doctor and specialist-based bodies around the world say that the jury is still out on the safety and effectiveness of current government mass-vaccination policies.

Media Watch is wrong. There is no such thing as false balance in this debate. There is only the ABC’s obligation to enable its viewers to access and question all available information. Contrast that with Media Watch’s evident desire to censor and suppress a reasonable and valid viewpoint in a scientific debate and you must wonder what they are trying to achieve and who will benefit from this censorship?

It’s time to break the silence and not just allow but encourage the debate. Pharmaceutical interests are frightened of consumers becoming better-informed about their family’s health rights. What role does the ABC play in supporting their attempts at censorship?

PS – you may have noted that I have a different email address on this posting. That is because the AVN’s website was overwhelmed with people seeking information after last night’s media watch program. I have checked with our web host and they have confirmed that this was not a DDoS attack but a genuine surge of people trying to get information from the website. We have updated our hosting plan and are being moved to a larger server to ensure that the demand won’t take our website down again. Please bear with us – this move should not take more than 24 hours. I hope the ABC are watching what is occurring. If their audience is this interested in both sides of the vaccination issue, who is Jonathan Holmes to say they can’t access it?
