VAXXED The Movie is a documentary based on the whistleblower information released by a former employee at the CDC who helped to falsify the results of a study. It is produced by Dr. Andrew Wakefield and there are some really interesting quotes from his testimony that clarify some of the false narrative that is constantly repeated by those who simply do not know.
Let me begin by saying that I am NOT anti-vax. However, I cannot help but be aware of the number of children today that are injured by vaccines. And I’m not talking about autism. That is the major “pro-vax lobby” talking point. The pro-vax side of the argument would have you believe that the anti-vax side is trying to push an agenda solely in the idea that vaccines cause autism. That is simply not true. Autism is but one issue of hundreds for the “vaccine safety” crowd. Autism is a major issue to be sure. But again, there are many, many other consistent issues that parents are consistently reporting to their pediatricians regarding their children’s health following a vaccine.
Over and over again those parents are not listened to. Over and over again the doctor or other medical professional tells them that what their child is experiencing is normal. They will tell parents that fevers are normal. Lots of kids get fevers after vaccines. It’s normal. That is what parents are told. The truth is that it actually would be normal if it was normal for humans to get vaccines. But vaccines are foreign material introduced by other humans. So, I’m not okay with a medical professional saying that a fever is normal following a treatment that is supposed to ensure the continued health of the child. It is, in fact, an oxymoron. The factual statement is that the condition is COMMON.
Medical professionals tell parents that seizures are normal. They tell parents that uncontrolled screaming is normal. They tell parents that a rash all over the body of the child is a normal reaction. They tell parents that extreme diarrhea and / or constipation are normal. They will even tell a parent that the kid projectile vomiting with a violent food allergy after eating the same food eaten a few days before the vaccine is normal reaction.
I kid you not. They tell parents these things. I’ve heard the stories of the parents. Because of my professional interactions in clinics and hospitals I’ve heard medical professionals discussing these very symptoms and bemoaning the fact that the parents just don’t get it. And they talk about how the parents are just too uninformed to understand that there is no problem with the vaccine because their kids – who were perfectly healthy prior to the vaccine – are sick. Many believe they have superior knowledge and the parents are just stupid. I’m sure many parents reading this can relate even if there were no problems. You are still treated as if you are barely intelligent enough to care for a child.
Here is the largest issue I have with the ever-increasing vaccination program that is forced upon uninformed parents. The largest issue is that children are dying. Children are dying in record numbers. Children are severely injured in record numbers. And the issue I have is that their parents are completely unaware that death is even a possibility. Parents are unaware that permanent brain damage is a risk, however small. They are told over and over and over again that vaccines are completely safe and there could be absolutely no harm at all, whatsoever, world without end. This is completely false.
Just a little bit of common sense would put paid to that claim. There is not one single medication on the market today that will not cause unforeseen issues in someone, somewhere.
I don’t watch TV because of the constant commercials but that is the first place that you will see the truth of what I just wrote. How much time is spent during a 30-second commercial listing the side effects of the medication? Of course, vaccines are not medications and I am not saying that they are. But they are medical interventions and they come with informational inserts required by law. Just as those pharmaceutical advertisements on TV are required to tell you the problems and complications that might come along with the medication, so it is with vaccines. There are vaccine inserts that detail the same kind of list of side effects that you see on those pharmaceutical commercials. How many of you are even aware of those inserts?
By their own testimony, medical professionals administering the vaccines have not even read them. Why would you, the parent, be expected to read them? Medical professionals often comment on the number of VIS’s in the trash. Those are the Vaccine Information Statements required by the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act. But vaccines are completely safe and I’m not sure why there is such a thing as the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act. /sarc
I’ve put a link in the show notes to a website where all of the manufacturer inserts are listed in various formats so that you can read them online or download them to your computer for later use. In this podcast, I go over one of those inserts, pointing out the issues indicated in case you are unaware. If you already know and continue to vaccinate your children, then you are doing so fully informed. That is my goal.
We need to go beyond simply following the herd without questioning the leader. Animals do that. Humans have developed the ability to reason and think for themselves. They may still follow the herd, but they will know why and where it might lead.
