|Are You and Your Children At Risk?
United Press quotes James Strain, M.D., President of the American Academy of Pediatrics: "Our main concern is with the pertussis (whooping cough) vaccine. One in 3,000 doses causes permanent injury to a child." Note: Considering each child is expected to receive four doses of DPT vaccine- permanent injury occurs in one out of every 750.
In the New England Journal of Medicine, July 1994 issue, a study found that over 80% of children under five years of age who contracted whooping cough had been fully vaccinated.
In 1977, Dr. Jonas Salk (inventor of the Salk polio vaccine) testified along with other scientists that most (87%) of the polio cases which have occurred in the U.S. since the early 1970's were the by-product of the polio vaccine itself. Note: The Sabin oral polio vaccine (OPV) is the only known cause of polio in the U.S. today,--Centers for Disease Control (CDC) statistics.
Science 86, the publication of the prestigious American Association for the Advancement of Science: "European countries have eradicated polio without vaccinating everyone, Finland, for example, seemed to have wiped out polio when only a fraction of its population had been vaccinated."
More than 500 persons who received swine flu shots between October 1 and December l6, 1976, subsequently contracted Guillain-Barre Syndrome. Twenty-three of them died. The rubella (German measles) vaccine has been followed in some cases by transient and not-so-transient arthritis.
Former top government virologist, J. Anthony Morris, Ph.D., provided scientific data which discredits the flu vaccine. At a meeting on January 24 and 25, 1985, a goverrnment group known as the Vaccines and Related Biologic Products Advisory Committee (Centers for Disease Control, Influenza Branch, Atlanta, Georgia) presented studies showing the failure of the vaccine to protect against Influenza B Illness.
The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, (V.I.C.P.), is a federal project that began in 1986. It relieves vaccine manufacturers, doctors and hospitals from liability for vaccine damage. V.I.C.P. has paid ovor $500 million taxpayer dollars to compensate families for the damage and death caused by vaccines that were also paid for by your tax dollars.
Dr. Gordon Millichap, eminent pediatrician neurologist from Children's Memorial Hospital, Chicago, was quoted on the NBC-TV Program, "DPT: Vaccine Roulette" (produced by Lea Thompson, WRC-TV, Washington, D.C.), as having said to parents of a child who had been damaged by DPT vaccine that he "wouldn't even give that to his dog."
Recently 54,000 reports of injury and death have been collected by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). FDA commissioner David Kessler has said that possibly only 1 in 10 severe adverse reactions are reported.
TheTetanus (DPT) vaccine is known to cause high fever, pain, and recurrent abscess formation at the injection site, anaphylactic shock, loss of consciousness, a below normal drop in the blood count of T-cell lymphocytes (similar to that of people with AIDS), demyelinating neuropathy (a degenerative condition of the nervous system, similar to that of people with MS) and inner ear nerve damage (similar to that of Miss America 1995, Heather Whitestone's loss of hearing following a childhood DPT vaccination).
