THINK TWICE BEFORE GETTING A FLU SHOT
by: Kali Sinclair, NaturalNews
Fall and winter is flu season and many Americans respond to this threat with an annual flu shot. Posters on drug store walls and entryways ask, “Have you had your flu shot yet?” There is a clear expectation that every person should comply. Last year, 135 million doses of flu vaccine were distributed. Although this represents only 14% of our population, this is indeed a large number. Flu vaccines are big business. The CDC says 200,000 Americans are hospitalized with the flu each year. But they also say they don’t actually know the number of adults who contract the flu or died from the flu, nor do they publicize the number of people who contract vaccine injuries including the number of vaccinated patients who develop Guillain-Barre Syndrome.
Flu shots are far from infallible. First, the viral strain used to manufacture the vaccine is based on the best guess of which flu strain or strains will spread during the next flu season. Add to this best guess scenario the fact the viruses mutate. Even if the correct strain was chosen, a mutation may render the vaccine useless.
Annual flu statistics
The CDC reports an estimated average of 23,607 annual flu-related deaths. They explain that these numbers are estimated because mandatory reporting of flu victims is limited to children under the age of 17. They state that they do not know the exact number of flu deaths (or cases of flu) due to the following reasons:
- States are not required to report flu deaths in adults (18 years and older).
- Influenza is rarely listed on the death certificate as a cause of death when patients die of flu-related illnesses (such as pneumonia).
- Many flu-related deaths occur weeks after the initial flu infection due to a secondary infection or complications of an existing chronic condition.
- Most of the people who die from flu-related complications are never tested for influenza and if they were, the virus would not show up in tests weeks after the infection started (tests must be administered within a week of onset). Tests may show that they have antibodies to the flu, but that would not necessarily mean that the antibodies are from the current infection; they may be from a previous infection.
- False negative test results are common.
The annual estimate of 23,607 deaths due to flu reflects estimated annual averages that have ranged from 3,349 (1986-87 flu season) to 48,614 (2003-04 flu season). These numbers are derived from reported flu-related child deaths and the estimated number of adults that die from “flu-related illness.” Reported child deaths average 113 per year from the 2003-04 flu season through the 2013-14 flu season with a low of 39 in the 2004-05 flu season and a high of 282 in the 2009-10 flu season (the year of the swine flu). This leaves 23,494 average adult deaths that are attributed to the flu but are not officially reported as such.
How the CDC estimates flu cases
The CDC derives their annual number based on the number of adults whose death certificates cite the following causes of death: pneumonia and influenza (P&I) and respiratory and circulatory (R&I) causes.
They state: CDC uses underlying R&C deaths (which include P&I deaths) as the primary outcome in its mortality modeling because R&C deaths provide an estimate of deaths that include secondary respiratory or cardiac complications that follow influenza. R&C causes of death are more sensitive than underlying P&I deaths and more specific than deaths from all causes. Granted, the CDC uses a sophisticated computer software program and all available data to project numbers, but the official count of influenza is further muddied by lumping influenza and pneumonia together when ranking the 15 top causes of death in the U.S. For 2011, influenza and pneumonia together ranked at number 8 with 53,667 deaths. There is no list for influenza alone. And yet, the statistics lead one to believe influenza is the leading contagion causing death in this country.
If the CDC is going to push their agenda of flu shots, at the very least, flu shots should not include toxins like mercury, aluminum, and formaldehyde (see the first source if you need to detox from immunizations).

DIET, VITAMINS & SUPPLEMENTS THAT LOWER THE RISK OF BREAST CANCER
By: Jefferey Morgan, Nuique.com
Some foods have the capacity of improving your general health, boosting your immune system, and making sure that your risk of getting cancer are as slim as possible. Sadly, not even the healthiest diet or the most exclusive supplement doesn’t cure cancer. There are foods that may work together with the cancer treatment to improve your well-being.
Studies have proven that a great variety of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains can make the body function at its best potential. According to hundreds of studies on the subject, plant foods may decrease the risks of cancer. A consistent and strong pattern proves that diets rich in veggies and fruits can prevent the manifestation of cancer in the first place. The connection between proper food and cancer is extremely complex. Good food has a lot of compounds in its composition that may act as an inhibitor, as well as micronutrients and bioactive compounds with indefinite metabolic significance.
The link between cancer and vitamin supplements
According to several studies, bioactive compounds can ward off certain types of cancer. Vitamins and supplements don’t cure cancer, but in some ways they prevent the disease from emerging in the first place. Potential cancer inhibitors are: vitamins – folic acid, retinol, vitamin E and C, minerals – selenium and calcium, and additional bioactive compounds. A lot of attention has been given to macronutrients with antioxidant properties. Vitamin c, carotenoids, zinc and selenium apparently have potentially relevant functions in keeping cancers at bay. Antioxidants protect the DNA from oxidation, maintain the cell membranes are in good health and reduce the amount of nitrites in the body. A thorough understanding of cancer biology is required to identify the metabolic processes that can be impacted by mineral and vitamin supplementation. There are vitamins that may impact the disease, even though they can’t cure it. Some of the most effective are:
- Vitamin A – has the role of differentiating normal epithelial cells and preserving intercellular communication via gap junction; thus, the process that leads to irregular cell replication is repressed.
- Vitamin C – boosts the connective tissue integrity and immune response
- Vitamin D – may have a role in reducing colon cancer since it controls the intracellular and availability functions of calcium.
- Calcium – may reduce the risk of getting colon cancer by tying bile acids and regularizing colorectal epithelial cell proliferation
- Selenium – blocks the expansion of malignant cells through cell cycle modulation
Recommended supplements for women who already have breast cancer
Even though vitamin supplements don’t cure cancer, they might have a positive role in the development of the illness. Coenzyme Q10 for instance, is vital for energy release within the cells of the body. Low amounts can be triggered by severe stress in circumstances such as surgery or chemotherapy. Coenzyme Q10 as a supplement may have beneficial effects on women with breast cancer that are currently under treatment. Selenium, a trace element, is extremely important in regulating detoxification enzyme activity in the body’s cells including the liver. In quantities of 50 to 200mg, supplements may prevent potential deficiencies that happen in patient undergoing chemotherapy. Most minerals and multivitamins under the form of a supplement already contain selenium. Vitamin D3 may also offer protection.
Natural sources are the sun, although a supplement can also be added to your daily regimen. Even though food and supplements can’t cure breast cancer, we must admit that they do play an important role. While a healthy diet and good food keeps you healthy in energized, supplements are meant to fill in the gaps and compensate for deficiencies. Regardless, if you have breast cancer or you are susceptible to getting it due to genetics, your best chances of survival are to get tested frequently and seek advice from a certified physician in the domain.
2 TRUE HEARTRENDING STORIES
By: Tony Isaacs, The Best Years in Life
For many generations now we, our families and our doctors have been taught to forget mankind’s 6000 year history of preventing and treating illness naturally, and to believe that the only real medicine comes in a small brown bottle from the drug store and the treatments of mainstream germ theory doctors. Over the past several decades we have seen how synthetic medicines created in the labs of the trillion dollar world pharmaceutical empire heal essentially nothing and merely manage symptoms, while their many side effects lead to other conditions and the need for even more medications.
Despite the fact that such a system has failed to heal hardly anything in the last half century and lost the so-called war on cancer, we have nevertheless largely bought into the myth of what has been hammered home by billions of dollars of propaganda, drug company reps and doctored studies – and we refuse to be shaken from it. Those of us who have researched and embraced natural medicine know a far different reality – the reality that we can see with our own eyes and feel with our own bodies that tells us that clearly nature is by far the best choice, as it always has been, when it comes to preventing and treating illness.
We have seen and learned firsthand that in most instances nature is safer, more effective and far less expensive than anything mainstream medicine has to offer, even though it has been largely ignored and suppressed. But despite ample proof that nature is best, we are still a small minority. The mainstream campaign of lies, deceit and suppression of natural competition has been hugely successful. Profits win and healing takes a distant second.
What happens when doubt creeps in
As a result of all this, those of us who know better sometimes are pressured into doubting our own knowledge by well-intentioned friends and family who do not know any better, and by doctors who should know better but get most of their medical education from those whose profits depend upon drugs and mainstream treatments. Far too often, the love of family and friends and the push from mainstream medicine conspire to make a deadly combination. Two situations recently have brought that point home to me rather vividly – and in one instance, tragically. The first one came when I asked a dear friend of mine who is a member of both CureZone and my own Yahoo Health Group (Oleandersoup) to make a post on my Yahoo forum telling about the success his close friend had following my anti-cancer protocol.
At last report, the protocol had literally saved his life and he was winning his battle with cancer. To my surprise and sadness, this is the reply I received: “Tony, I would love to do so, but it’s not appropriate. My friend B___ was eventually persuaded by his family and oncologist to undergo chemo and stopped taking Oleander. All this was without my knowledge. His original diagnosis was colon cancer which spread to his liver. He was not an advocate of Natural Health but trusted my experience in NH to abandon his orthodox treatments and begin Oleander. He died two weeks ago because of the intervention of his family and oncologist. I have lost my closest and life-long friend. He would still be alive today and free from cancer if he had followed my advice. I am just too angry and upset to do very much at the moment. I don’t think a testimonial is now very appropriate.”
On the heels of that senseless and heart wrenching tragedy, I called a member of my Yahoo group who has had quite a struggle with IBC (Inflammatory Breast Cancer) – a very aggressive and hard to treat form of cancer. We had not spoken since before I took a couple of weeks off and I had been having problems reaching her since my return. When we last spoke, she had begun taking the supplements, especially oleander and Inositol/IP6 – both of which are very effective at reducing and eliminating tumors) and her hard and swollen breast had finally begun to shrink, which was very good news, since IBC can ultimately lead to a breast literally bursting and the nature of the cancer is such that the skin cannot be joined back together and healed properly. She also reported during our last conversation that she was due to have surgery on her leg due to a broken femur (probably as a result of her cancer metastasizing to her bones). Finally, I was able to reach her, and when I spoke to her this time, she told me she was at a loss as to what to do and felt trapped by her oncologist and her family.
I asked her what had happened since we last spoke and she told me that while she was hospitalized to have a titanium rod inserted in her femur, her mother gathered up all of her supplements and took them to her oncologist, who ordered her to stop taking them and refused to treat her if she did. He also convinced her, along with her family, to undergo chemo so that the breast could be reduced and healed enough to remove it. And when asked what her prognosis was, he told her that her cancer was a very aggressive one and all he could do was try to buy her a little time to have with her children, friends and family. Not surprisingly, since she stopped taking the supplements, her breast began to swell again. I was not only dismayed, I was infuriated!
My response was, essentially, “Let me get this straight. Your family and doctor made you stop a natural protocol that was working, helping to build your body and immune system, and was intended to save your breast as well as save your life so that you lived many more healthy years – for a program that will damage your entire body with chemo, cut off your breast and admits that the best it can do is perhaps buy you a few months of poor quality life as you suffer from all the damage the treatment does? And now your breast is swelling again. Absolutely incredible! Your family is literally loving you to death and your doctor is completing the sentence due to his ignorance or downright greed!”
She agreed with me completely, saying that she had studied alternative treatments for over a year and knew better, but she was completely outnumbered by her very mainstream family and no longer even had her supplements. The good news (I hope) is that she regained her resolve during our conversation and is now going to demand her supplements back and continue to take them, even if she has to sneak them. Though those two incidents hit close to home, they really came as no great surprise. The tragic combination of well-meaning but brainwashed loved ones and oncologists who limit their treatments to the barbaric methods of trying to cut out, burn out or poison out the symptoms of cancer is a deadly one. I have seen it happen far too many times. When it comes to oleander based treatments, a similar tragedy happened with the mother of the man who devised the “oleander soup” remedy. He used it to successfully rid his mother of liver and lung cancer, but then she stopped taking it and the cancer ultimately returned.
Her new and very persuasive oncologist convinced her that her previous victory over cancer was a fluke, some kind of spontaneous remission that surely had nothing to do with some voodoo home remedy. She listened to him, opted for chemo, and soon was dead due to her liver being destroyed by the treatments. I can understand the actions of friends and family who know no better and mean well. I have a much larger problem with oncologists who likely know better, but stick to what is most profitable – choosing profits and greed over true healing which is supposed to be their calling. I would like to give them the benefit of the doubt, but it is hard to ignore the obvious truth. First of all, oncologists cannot help but see the dismal success rates they have in treating most cancers. And secondly, we have this report: In 2002, the Journal of the American Medical Association reported that in the previous year, the average oncologist had made $253,000 of which 75% was profit on chemotherapy drugs administered in his/her office.
Yet, surveys of oncologists by the Los Angeles Times and the McGill Cancer Center in Montreal show that from 75% to 91% of ongologists would refuse chemotherapy as a treatment for themselves or their families. Why? Too toxic and not effective. Yet, 75% of cancer patients are urged to take chemo by their oncologists. That is pretty damning, no matter how you look at it, for the doctors all too many of us entrust our health and lives to. To restate, 75% of their patients are prescribed chemo, from which they get 75% of their profits, and yet 75-91% of them would not opt for chemo themselves! What damnable greed and betrayal of their patient’s trust! When friends and family add their pressure to such greed, it can be our very lives that are at stake.
The lesson I think we can take from such experiences is this: No matter what, it is your body and your life and neither should be taken so lightly as to hand them over to care you do not believe in just to please someone else. Follow your instincts and your intuition. By doing so, you very well may save your life – just as your loved ones wanted you to do in the first place. Live long, live healthy, live happy!

33 FOODS THAT STARVE CANCER
By Gregg Prescott, http://www.bodymindsoulspirit.com/33-foods-that-starve-cancer/
Cancer is the second most common form of death in the United States – claiming the lives of 1 in 4 people. While billions of dollars in high-tech research is conducted yearly, we just can’t seem to get ahead of the curve as more and more people are diagnosed with a number of types of cancers. We often think about what we should be removing from our diet in an effort to prevent cancer, such as refinedsugar and processed foods. While this is a good thing to do there may be something else we should be doing. What if we could actually add certain foods to our diet that would beat cancer at its own game? The father of modern medicine, Hippocrates said it best when he said, “Let your food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” He was referring quite simply to the innate powers that are locked deep within the cells of living foods – those foods that provide the maximum nutrition for us are also the very foods that can starve cancer.
What is angiogenesis?
Angiogenesis literally means the creation of new blood vessels – “angio” means blood vessels and “genesis” means creation. The human body contains over 60,000 miles of blood vessels, including 19 million capillaries. Blood vessels can adapt to whatever environment they are exposed to and the body has the amazing ability to regulate how many blood vessels are present at any time. Angiogenesis occurs during times of health and disease. Blood carries oxygen and nutrients to all parts of the body via blood vessels. When new tissue is developed, a blood supply is necessary for its growth and maintenance – angiogenesis, or the formation of new blood vessels, must occur. The body can fertilize vessels to grow and also has ways to prune them back when necessary.
A healthy body has control over the on and off switch and can regulate angiogenesis as needed. However, research is now showing that in a number of diseases the body fails to either grow enough blood vessels or is not able to prune vessels when needed. When there are too many blood vessels conditions like cancer, arthritis, blindness, endometriosis, obesity and Alzheimers disease are fueled. When there are too few vessels, wounds don’t heal and conditions such as stroke, coronary heart disease, hair loss, erectile dysfunction and peripheral arterial disease result. In the case of cancer, tumors release growth factor proteins that beckon for blood vessels to grow into the tumor.
This provides not only the oxygen and the nutrients that the cancer needs to grow, but also supplies an escape route whereby cancerous cells can exit the tumor and metastasize in other areas. Worldwide there are over 70 major diseases that impact millions of humans on a large scale – these diseases may all look different on the outside but upon closer inspection, they all share unbalanced angiogenesis as their common denominator. This finding is now allowing researchers to re-conceptualize disease prevention and treatment..
FACT: Cancer begins as a group of harmless cells
Imbalanced angiogenesis is a hallmark of all forms of cancer. First and foremost it is important to understand how cancer starts. All cancers begin as microscopic nests of cells that are, for all intensive purposes, harmless. They can only grow to the size of the tip of a ballpoint pen at most on their own because they don’t have their own blood supply – no nutrients or oxygen means no growth.
Autopsy studies from people who have died in car accidents show that forty percent of women between the ages of 40 and 50 have microscopic cancers in their breasts and fifty percent of men in their 50”²s and 60”²s have microscopic cancers in their prostate. In fact, by the time we all reach about age 70 we all have these microscopic nests of cancer cells in our thyroid. However, the majority of these cells never develop into anything dangerous simply because they don’t have what they need to survive – that is a blood supply. Dr. Judah Folkman, a pioneer in angiogenesis, referred to this as “cancer without disease.”
Testing what is true
Cancer cells are fed by the development of new blood vessels, so it makes sense to think that once the blood supply is cut off, the tumor will no longer be fed and thus will die. Advancements in angiogenesis research based on this theory have resulted in much success in both animals as well as humans. Dr. William Li, President and Medical Director of the Angiogenesis Foundation, has conducted extensive research in angiogenesis-based medicine – a new and comprehensive approach to fighting disease by way of restoring the body’s innate ability to control angiogenesis. Medical therapies that either stimulate the growth of new blood vessels or inhibit growth are being put to the test with great success. Today there is a whole group of cancer treatments that block blood vessel growth that are approved and in use for cancers of the colon, kidney, breast, lung, brain and thyroid. Many patients have experienced stabilization or complete regression from tumors as a result of these drugs.
Catch cancer early
Dr. Li noticed that while many forms of cancer responded quite well to anti-angiogenesis drugs, others did not. This spawned more research which led Dr. Li back to the root cause of most disease. He hypothesized that one of the reasons some cancers responded better than others to anti-angiogenesis therapy was because many cases were in the advanced stages where the cancer had already invaded many other parts of the body. Once disease becomes rampant it is difficult, if not impossible to cure. But what if there were certain naturally occurring anti-angiogenesis substances that one could consume in their diet, thus prohibiting cancerous tumors from ever forming? This led Dr. Li to the thought of starving cancer before it even becomes a disease – before it is too late – in essence, beating cancer at its own game. This approach would benefit both healthy people as well as those who had already beaten cancer.
Diet a major contributor
Ninety to ninety-five percent of all cancers are environmental, meaning they are outside of genetics. Out of these environmental cancers, thirty to thirty-five percent are the result of diet. In relation to diet, Dr. Li asked not what we could take away from the diet but what could be added that would beat back the blood vessels that feed cancer. Can we eat to starve cancer? The answer, according to Li, is unequivocally, yes. Mother nature has provided a plethora of foods with naturally occurring properties designed to stop the formation of blood vessels in their tracks. In addition, foods appear to have a synergistic impact on tumors, working together to starve cancer cells. Some types of certain foods are more potent than others. While research continues at full speed, an ongoing list of beneficial foods is being compiled.
Choose your food wisely
According to Dr. Li, we can start today, eating the foods that are known to inhibit the growth of blood vessels, and make wise choices that will allow us to stay as healthy as possible by keeping cancerous cells in their infancy. Here are some of the best foods to choose from:
Apples, Blueberries, Cranberries, Tomatoes, Garlic, Basil, Onions, Thyme, Ginseng, Ginger, Cauliflower, Carrots, Broccoli, Cabbage, Sweet Potato, Kale, Lemons, Oranges, Peaches, Grapefruit, Flaxseed, Red Grapes, Strawberries, String Beans, Spinach, Green Tea, Peppers, Pumpkins, Honey, Olive oil, Shiitake mushrooms, Walnuts, Almonds
Note: Dr. Li recommends eating one cancer-fighting food with each meal. For information on more cancer-fighting foods visit Eat to Beat Cancer.
FORBIDDEN HISTORY: RAGGEDY ANN & VACCINE INDUCED DEATH
Johnny Gruelle created the Quintessential Raggedy Ann doll in 1915 (US patent D47789). Gruelle was a successful American writer, cartoonist, storyteller and illustrator who worked for a popular magazine at the time called Physical Culture. Many are unaware that Gruelle’s famous Raggedy Ann storybooks and illustrations were based in large part on Marcella’s childhood adventures.
Marcella’s Vaccine Tragedy
Not long after the creation of the much beloved Raggedy Ann, Gruelle’s only child and 13 year old daughter Marcella died a painful death after receiving a routine small pox vaccination at school, which was given without parental consent. Reports indicate that after the initial inoculation Marcella had, “ lost her appetite, and became feverish and fatigued.” Amazingly, more inoculations were given despite her negative reaction from the first jab. Predictably Marcella’s health continued to decline to the point where she lost all muscle control, “becoming listless and lifeless like a rag doll.” While all this was going on at school, her parents knew nothing about it and had never ever given their consent for any vaccinations.
Sadly, Marcella died a slow and agonizing death. The Gruelle’s were convinced beyond any doubt that the vaccination was the culprit behind the death of their only child, even though school authorities and vaccination proponents insisted Marcella had died from a preexisting heart defect. Ultimately, “Seven leading physicians are called upon to opine about the cause of her death. Six consented it is the result of vaccine induced poisoning and call it malpractice. The seventh, being the head of the school board and a supporter of vaccination, declines to comment.”
The Creation of the Raggedy Ann Doll
Johnny had originally created Raggedy Ann as an unlikely protagonist gracing the many stories he began writing to entertain his young sickly daughter, Marcella. For those who are not familiar or who have forgotten, Raggedy Ann was the unusual character staring in a series of stories for young children that became a sensation. She was a rag doll who sported bright, red yarn hair and a triangle nose. The story goes, one afternoon Marcella had been rummaging around in the attic of her grandmother’s house when she spied an old storage chest, opened it and to her delight found a faceless rag doll. When Marcella showed her dad the faceless doll he drew a unique face on it.
“The doll had no face, so, it was her Dad, Johnny Gruelle, who put the famous black eyes, red triangle nose, and separated mouth on the original doll and Grandma made a new dress.” Johnny then proceeded to walk over to his bookshelf, where he pulled down a book of poems by James Whitcomb Riley. After thumbing through the pages, he found two poems that suited him and combined their titles to create a name for his daughter’s rag doll. So “The Raggedy Man” and “Little Orphan Annie,” poem titles were morphed into “Raggedy Ann.” Gruelle then suggested Marcella name her rag doll Raggedy Ann. In 1918, Gruelle had sold his first volume of Raggedy Ann Stories published by P. F. Volland Company based in Chicago. The Raggedy Ann doll was marketed along with the book and within months the book and doll were selling like hotcakes.
Two years later, in 1920 Gruelle wrote the sequelRaggedy Andy Stories where a new rag doll character debuted named Raggedy Andy, who was to be Ann’s brother. Andy wore a sailor suit and hat, had a triangle nose and the trademark red yarn hair. A Raggedy Andy doll was created to accompany the sequel and as a striking complement to the popular Raggedy Ann doll. In 1929, Gruelle published Marcella: A Raggedy Ann Storywhich was a much anticipated tribute to his beloved daughter, who had died unexpectedly from a smallpox vaccination at the tender age of thirteen.
Anti Vaccination Movement
Not long after his daughter’s death from vaccination, Johnny Gruelle was commissioned to create an illustration for an article titled “Vaccines Killed My Two Sisters.” Cleverly, Gruelle enclosed the following note along with his submitted illustration. “Having recently lost our only daughter through Vaccination (in public school, without our consent) you may realize how terribly HUMOROUS the subject of vaccination appears to Mrs. Gruelle and myself. Of the seven physicians called in on the case, six pronounced it in emphatic terms MALPRACTICE. The seventh did not commit himself, being the head of the school board and a firm advocate of vaccination.”
The tragic vaccine induced death of Marcella propelled Johnny to become a staunch member of the anti-vaccination movement of the time. Johnny’s wife, Myrtle Gruelle, explained that Johnny had been putting the final touches on the Raggedy Ann doll just prior to Marcella’s untimely death. Ironically, the patent for the Raggedy Ann character, soon to be adopted as an iconic symbol for anti-vaccination advocates, had been granted around the same time as Marcella’s death from vaccination. Obviously, Raggedy Ann was not originally conceived by Gruelle as an iconic symbol representing injury and death from vaccines, yet the doll is uncanny in its evocation of a child who has become limp like rag doll from a vaccine injury. The expression “like a rag doll” immediately conjures up the qualities of listless and lifeless, those same qualities that accurately described Marcella’s frail body, after injection with deadly inoculations by well-meaning public school “vaccinators.”
Surely, Johnny would not have objected to fact that his beloved rag doll became an icon for almost a century of childhood vaccine injuries and deaths. Reality check: the anti-vaccination movement is not merely a modern movement started by a few misguided misfits. Objections to vaccinations began at the very same time that vaccinations came into use – from the get-go. “As governments began to compel their citizens to be vaccinated, resistance to the procedure grew. Anti-vaccination societies became especially vocal during the late nineteenth century. Many anti-vaccinators believed that vaccination was, as George Bernard Shaw put it, a “filthy piece of witchcraft which did more harm than good.” America, introduced compulsory vaccination on a state by state basis. Although there is no mandatory federal vaccination law, all 50 states require children who attend public school to be vaccinated. Vaccination exemptions are issued in all states.
“All 50 states issue medical exemptions, 48 states (excluding Mississippi and West Virginia) permit religious exemptions, and 19 states allow an exemption for philosophical reasons.” Whatever happened to the Smallpox Vaccine? “Routine smallpox vaccination in the United States ended in 1972. Officials are hesitant to resume the immunizations because the vaccine is the most reactive of all and has been linked to serious side effects, including death.” ~ Reuters, November 29, 2001. The Data below is from Greg Beattie’s book, Vaccination A Parent’s Dilemma. For those of you who have been mislead by corporate vaccination lies, this will come as quite a shock. When you take a step back and look at the big picture, it is remarkably clear that vaccinations did not in fact save us.
