Hi, interesting conversation we are having. Warning: this post is very long A good way to learn from other people's worked placed as well as other experiences.
I suppose I never questioned and differentiated between vaccines - they are supposed to be for the common good - right. Until they brought out the flu vaccine. Hold on a minute, I question? I had known for years previously re how the strain alters and mutates. So any season we can be dealing with a different strain and within that season it mutates. So where's the thinking behind this, they are just guessing. This is accepted fact. So what is the point of putting yourself at risk of all the other ingredients in the vaccine which your body then has to deal with for a guess I asked myself as my parent's who had never had flu, were targeted at age 65 and vaccinated. Cold symptoms excess mucus and stuffines with aches and pains and high temperature is not flu, people call it flu, but it's not flu - I question and look at the notorious Spanish Flu during WW1 that killed more people than the war - that was flu.
So I look deeper. Listen to Science Now, documetaries. I do some research - Aluminium is known to affect the brain, replaces magnesium needed for a healthy functioning brain by attaching to the same cell receptors and so displacing Aluminium. When a body is attacked by what it sees as a poison (the adjuvants in the vaccines, put in there to create an immune reaction (thats the principle behind vaccines) Macrophages gobble up the invading poisons to isolate and protect the body but Macrophages can cross the blood brain barrier. A Macrophage can't live forever and eventually will explode and spill it's contents in the brain if that's where it happens to be. Open the door to brain inflammation, brain damage. Yes other vaccines have aluminium as an adjuvant (really worryingly as they now use more aluminium because Thimerasol/ mercury has now been reduced to 'trace amounts' as a preservative - note trace amounts add up. 8 lots of trace amounts given to that immature immune system of an 8 week old baby that is. And further trace amounts a few weeks later and again. Which is why thought should be given as to the age related timing of the schedule and the number given at any one time. A childs body may deal with one vaccine and its adjuvants of heavy metals and alien organic substances that it needs to deal with but a baby with 8)
But to get back to the flu vaccine - that's given every year. This aluminium/macrophage scenario onslaught is happening every year. This is why years ago, speculation in the scientific community arose and it was said, 1flu vaccination every year for 5 consecutive years and Alzheimers development was inevitable. This information seems to have been swept under the carpet and the flu vaccination schedule now includes babies, pregnant women and children.
It is not the over blown price of vaccines to the NHS that concerns me but the escalation of and targetting as a way of pharma reaping more profits.
It's not vaccinations per se that I see as wrong but the shcedules, the age targeted and the number of unnecessary ones.
The live nasal flu vaccine given to our 2yrs + and school children(inhaled up the nose - omg, couldn't be a more direct access to the brain through the nasal mucosal tissue. Think! are smells ever seen to affect the brain? - of course they are, that is why certain smells evoke memories - direct access) Then our lovely little children having received a live vaccine - shed it, shed the virus for a minimum of 38days. I used to think until I dug deeper that you had to come into contact with the vaccinated child to become exposed. Not so. The child leaves the virus everywhere it goes, in all the rooms, transport, everywhere. I go to see my friend, her grandaughter was at her home 10 days previously - she left the virus all over my friends home. No wonder my husband became really unwell following the visit. I know there is concern from parents who's children do not have the flu vaccine (for whatever reason) I have seen the Govt guidelines that have been issued to Headteachers about policy re authorised absence requests of non vaccinated children. It is determined by policy that the risk is similar to being exposed to natural flu or any other childhood virus that is running its course through the school population and no authorisation is to be granted.
So it is no wonder in the autum following mass vaccination so many colds and flu symptoms abound in the population at large.
Similarly the live MMR. I have learned that the protection I developed when I caught the natural wild measles when I was little will not protect me against the vaccinated strain because it is different. And I also learned that the MMR vaccinated children create the largest number of children succumbing to the vaccinated strain of measles. Also that scientific studies show that natural immunity created in the population that caught the wild measles offers protection against many forms of cancer in later life.
The questions and answers are nor quite so obvious and you have to dig deep into the research.
I have a love of history. If you look into historical documents, accounts of people present at the time of the notorious Smallpox epidemics in the mid to late 1800's. Leicester was significant. Vaccination spread the disease like wildfire. It was improved hygiene/sanitation and care and isolation of the patients and the enforced halting of vaccination that wiped out the epidemic. Leicester was one of the cities who had enforced vaccination of the then smallpox vaccine used and anyone not complying were fined heavily. Look online you will find the accounts of the time. I was vaccinated against small pox and my parents when I asked about my vaccination scar could not have spoken more highly of vaccinations and how it had wiped out smallpox. And yet even in the 1960's the only cases and deaths recorded were of vaccinated children. The vaccine gave some children smallpox.
Jenner himself vaccinated his and his neighbour's child every year with the then crude cowpox vaccination. Today there is a hypothesis that the cowpox vaccine is linked with the contraction of TB/probably to do with immune function. Jenner's son and neighbour died of TB at age 20, 21.
I will post a link from a BMJ discussion Mentioning cow pox/smallpox TB link and similarly MMR linked to other present day conditions.
These contraversial ideas, hypotheses are happening all the time within the scientific and medical communities and we have no idea. We the public think everything is fine and dandy because we are told it is so. But nothing is steadfastly true and knowledge is changing continually.
As in the finalisation of the human genome project was it 2007 - 10 yrs ago. Science thought it would provide the answer to everything. But it just illustrated how very little we know. A human has approx 22,000 genes - similar to that of an earthworm. OK something wrong there! Turns out we have our gut microbiome - our beneficial gut bugs whose influence we are dependant on for what we think, who we are and our health and function. Scientists speaking on Radio 4 years ago laughingly explained the fact that we are just bags of bacteria and micro organisms walking about having a human experience. Their cells outnumber our human cells by 10:1 and their genes at a minimum of 100:1. We have evolved symbiotically together, Their genetic expression controls our function and human gene expression for the good of the whole. Great! however this unthought of anomally was never considered when introducing vaccines or antibiotics (there are also antibiotics contained in vaccines) Antibiotics = antibacteria, the very life form we depend on for our lives. Our mitochondria too - multiple mitochondria in every cell. Mitochondria are single cell life forms thought to be the very beginning of life. When the concept of vaccinations and the adjuvants contained there in were founded humans were ignorant of what they are now learning. We need to learn and continue learning for the sake of our children. Concepts and practice changes continually, old ideas are swept away.
As with the recognition of heart attacks in 1911. practice: 6 weeks complete bed rest following a heart attack. This care continued for 50+ years and killed billions of patients over that period. Until NASA with it's space flight studies recognised that it's 20yr old fit strong male research volunteers heart's started to deteriorate after only 2 weeks bed rest. Not a word was said to the public just practice changed and nurses were getting you out of bed asap into the newly aquired armchair that suddenly appeared at the side of each bed.
It's fascinating and we need to keep up.
Have you heard of the Scottish neurosurgeon/neurologist Dr Natasha Campbell McBride. Her work with children on the autism spectrum. If not please consider googling her work. Her baby developed autism. Her books are available on amazon and no doubt you tube videos
