LAURA KNIGHT-JADCZYK AND JOE QUINN
Since the 9/11 attacks, no book has provided a satisfactory answer as to WHY the attacks occurred and who was ultimately responsible for carrying them out - until now.
Weston A. Price Chapter leader and popular blogger Sarah Pope of Healthy Home Economist has left people on both sides of the vaccine issue in awe after her appearance onThe Daily Show with Jon Stewart.Men like Dr. Offit have an agenda, financial or otherwise, and really lack any sort of moral character, ironic he would accuse parents, who disagree with his views as morally reprehensible.
Her segment is actually with Samantha Bee, and her pro-vaccine opponent is the ubiquitous propagandist Dr. Paul Offit. Four-and-a-half hours of interview were carefully chiseled into a few minutes of carefully selected phrases.
It took guts for Sarah to agree to share why she doesn't vaccinate. While there was a risk in being edited, national viewers were finally exposed to someone stating that "herd immunity" through vaccination is a myth. There was a clear bent against people who don't vaccinate, but in the end both sides were ridiculed.
Paul Offit believes that exempting your child from vaccination is morally reprehensibleThe choice to not vaccinate is morally reprehensible Why?! Because corporate medicine and it's 'experts' are some how more knowledgable about what is best for other people's children? Families with legitimate concerns should cower to physicians and experts and allow them to over-ride their parental philosophical and religious rights based on corrupted, profit based science?
The status accorded to him by the pharmaceutical and medical fields permits him to influence the opinions and practice of lower rung physicians regarding vaccine exemptions. Unfortunately, even doctors will simply believe the "expert" without bothering to go and check their own medical literature, to see if the self-proclaimed expertise has a solid scientific foundation. Research shows that when people listen to the expert, the part of their brains that is capable of independent thought goes to sleep.The vaccination debate is getting more attention because daily, uncomfortable and disturbing truths are coming to light, and those capable of 'independent thought' are not going to sleep!
"It's worse in terms of scope of critically ill children who require intensive care. I would call it unprecedented. I've practiced for 30 years in pediatrics, and I've never seen anything quite like this,"Although there is no known vaccine for the virus, and the scope which it will reach is also unknown, those that have become infected are following a common theme. They have all been vaccinated with the MMR vaccines, influenza vaccines, and polio vaccines. Of course, many children in the United States have been vaccinated, and most are required to be vaccinated in order to enter school. However, it is interesting to note that the illness is not occurring, yet, in children that have not been vaccinated.
"This is an incredibly large exposure investigation, and it involves infants, so it is particularly sensitive," Carrie Williams, spokeswoman for the Texas Department of State Health Services, said on Friday. "Babies are more likely than older children and adults to develop life-threatening forms of TB."Employment and medical records had to be examined to determine all of those who were put at risk.
