Lizzi Hollanders: feel free to use any of the research I have compiled
After extensive research we have decided that there is no rational basis upon which to vaccinate. the entire premise of vaccinations is deeply flawed, the risks far outweigh the benefits and the dearth of reliable, valid and consistent scientific data in tandem with the incredible profiteering conducted by the Pharmaceutical corporations makes the entire vaccine industry (and it is an industry as it it the greatest source of profit to these companies http://centerforvaccineethicsandpolicy.wordpress.com/2010/01/17/global-vaccines-revenues-projected-to-more-than-double-by-2016/) deeply suspect and guilty of extreme skulduggery.
A robust immune system can handle almost all disease and process it so that the body recovers and the results in life long immunity---far superior to potential partial immunity and/or destroyed immunity which wanes over time in tandem with the endless negative sequalae of auto-immune disorders that can result from the over injection of toxins into children's bodies.
Below are some links i find helpful in helping me elucidate the facts as they pertain to vaccination. the fact is this is a very heated debate filled with extreme ideological differences such that i believe it is often an unbridgable divide and thus not worth engaging. it is simply up to each individual to make a choice, to use informed consent and exorcise fear from the decision making process. any choice made in fear will result in doubt and uncertainty. the only path through this mire is to gain, gather and process knowledge. information is power and that is how this battle is being waged.. i have spent the better part of three years researching the tropic and for me I am satisfied, based on the current condition of our life, where we live and our health that any benefits from vaccinations do not outweigh the risks.
here are some links to resource I have found most helpful. First though a book called "Childhood Vaccination: Answers to your questions, by Katia Bailetti" was an excellent resource to starting out on this journey of becoming informed and getting out of the dogma and ideology. the books break down each vaccine, it's ingredient, the pros and the cons of having the disease, the pros and the cons of getting vaccinated and the degree of partial immunity and the time it lasts. it is well worth the read, it is neutral in its standpoint and accessible in that it is written in average english - not academic.
I like this link as it breaks down all the myths we currently hold as true in popular culture regrading vaccine efficacy
here is a link that gives a graphic of the increase of vaccines introduced to the vaccine schedule from 1983 to 2010 - it makes me shudder when i look at it. Canada follows an almost identical schedule. http://img641.imageshack.us/img641/7033/vaccinek.jpg
Here is a link to a table that shows a variety of vaccine schedules around the world http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3170075/table/table2-0960327111407644/
This is a great one for people who want to engage with pro-vax people. http://www.thehealthyhomeeconomist.com/2010/01/if-you-are-in-support-of-vaccinations/ and another one I have found useful http://iinformedparenting.blogspot.ca/2010/09/16-reasons-not-to-vacinate.html
Here is a link of a parent who says these questions need to be answered before she will even consider vaccinating her children. http://lifeonthefrancofarm.blogspot.com/2011/06/6-points-i-would-have-to-believe-before.html
here are some links on the Hep B vaccine. it's one i consider one of the most dangerous and insane of all vaccines (although a close tie with HPV) http://www.neurology.org/content/72/10/873.abstract
And this is a fantastic article that explains how the human immune system works prior to vaccination and what happens to the immune system after vaccination... a must read for anyone http://www.vaccinationcouncil.org/2011/06/10/basics-of-the-human-immune-system-prior-to-introduction-of-vaccines-are-vaccines-turning-our-children%E2%80%99s-immune-systems-inside-out/

Here is another article that helps tease apart the myth that vaccination equals immunity
and another article that goes into greater detail debunking the myth of herd immunity http://www.vacfacts.info/the-false-theory-of-vaccine-derived---herd-immunity.html
And for those who really want to get into the nitty gritty here is a link of all the vaccines currently manufactured and their ingredients. It's a worth a read and educating yourself about what exactly is being injected into your and your children's bodies. http://vaxtruth.org/2011/08/vaccine-ingredients/ and http://www.vaccine-tlc.org/
Finally along with the known neurotoxic effects of mercury is an even more deadlier adjuvant agent.
Aluminum is a positively charged bio-conductive element, 64 times more positive than colloidal blood products (ie. anything suspended in your blood) are negative; with the properties of a coagulant. It literally draws in all other metals & toxins in its path. When injected into deep muscle tissue or subcutaneously, this neurotoxin gets redistributed via the bloodstream (consisting of 90% water) to areas of fatty tissue (highly electrical tissues – negatively charged) throughout the body, builds up over time in these delicate centers; primarily in the Brain, Spinal cord, Myelin sheath, Meninges, cardiac cells, breasts & ovaries (in women), prostate (in men), kidneys, liver, gut & bowels.
This “sludging” is activated when Aluminum interacts with Hemoglobin in flow, in the negatively charged environment. This causes the negatively charged blood products to “attract” towards the larger, more massive positively charged Aluminum, causing clumping or “sludging”. This restricts blood flow, and it changes the Zeta Potential to change from -15mv (minus 15 milivolts) towards -10 mv (minus 10 milivolts), or possibly closer to zero. This is an increase in Zeta Potential, from a negatively charge towards neutral. (This is somewhat analogous to a change in state of water as it turns to ice – it’s a change in viscosity, affecting blood flow).
The final link is the one that really had a significant impact on my ability to trust what I was reading. Here you have a world class toxicologist doing a meta analysis of all the autism studies and her findings are interesting in the kinds of flaws she discovers and exposes. Again a meaty and hearty read but one I certainly enjoyed and gave me great insight.
I sincerely hope this helps. I make no bones about the fact that I advocate for non-vaccination because I have come to know that vaccines are mostly bunk science riding on the coattails of some good science, and disseminating it’s veracity through a heavily indoctrinated culture of blind faith in public health policy and pharmaceutical companies... and that is why it is such a difficult terrain to navigate... when lies disguise themselves behind truth, it take a sharp mind and a clear heart to see the way through. good luck to everyone in making the choice that is right for you and your family.
