Over the past several decades, American children’s physical and mental well-being has steadily deteriorated. Over half (54%) of all U.S. children (as of 2007) had a chronic health condition—with developmental and behavioral problems, obesity, allergies, asthma and mental health conditions leading the pack—and the prevalence of many of these conditions doubled from 1988 to the mid-2000s. Federal reporting on pediatric health indicators in 2017 showed that one in five children (kindergarteners through adolescents) were obese, one in ten had activity limitations resulting from chronic health problems, and one in seventeen (more males than females) had, according to a parent, “serious difficulties with emotions, concentration, behavior or getting along with other people.” In addition, 12% of adolescents suffered a major depressive episode in the previous year, with the prevalence of teenage depression rising continuously since 2004 and suicide representing the second leading cause of death for both teens and young adults. Vaccines are one of the most widespread and ongoing sources of prenatal and childhood exposure to metals that negatively affect the brain. Prenatal exposure—as occurs with the mercury-containing flu shots and aluminum-containing pertussis vaccines now routinely administered to pregnant women—is particularly dangerous as early exposure can impair subsequent growth and development of neurons. The U.S. requires the largest number of vaccines for school entry of any developed nation, although compulsory vaccination has been trending upward in Europe as well.
The federal government Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccines (ACCV) under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services just concluded their second meeting of 2018 on June 15th. These quarterly meetings include a report from the Department of Justice (DOJ) on cases settled for vaccine injuries and deaths as mandated by the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP). The NVICP was started as a result of a law passed in 1986 that gave pharmaceutical companies total legal immunity from being sued due to injuries and deaths resulting from vaccines. Drug manufacturers in the vaccine market can now create as many new vaccines as they desire, with no risk of being sued if their product causes injury or death. This has resulted in a huge increase of vaccines entering the market, and the U.S. government, through the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), is the largest purchaser of these vaccines, spending in excess of $4 billion taxpayer dollars each year to purchase these vaccines. If you or a family member is injured or dies from vaccines, you must sue the federal government in this special vaccine court. Many cases are litigated for years before a settlement is reached. As far as we know, Health Impact News is the only media source that publishes these reports each quarter. Past reports can be found here. The June 15, 2018 report states that 263 petitions were filed during the 3-month time period between 2/16/18 – 5/15/18, with 147 cases being adjudicated, and 113 cases compensated. But for some reason, the DOJ report only lists 68 of the settlements, leading one to wonder why only these particular cases were listed. These 68 cases, specify the vaccine, the injury, and the amount of time the case was pending before settlement. 53 of the 68 cases were for injuries (and one death) due to the flu vaccine, making the annual flu shot the most dangerous vaccine in the U.S., by far.
A major study has just been published in the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health looking at declining fertility rates among eight million U.S. women aged 25 to 29 during a 7-year period. The title of study, published by Gayle DeLong, Ph.D., from the Department of Economics and Finance, Baruch College/City University of New York, is "A lowered probability of pregnancy in females in the USA aged 25–29 who received a human papillomavirus vaccine injection." From the abstract: "This study analyzed information gathered in National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, which represented 8 million 25-to-29-year-old women residing in the United States between 2007 and 2014. Approximately 60% of women who did not receive the HPV vaccine had been pregnant at least once, whereas only 35% of women who were exposed to the vaccine had conceived. Using logistic regression to analyze the data, the probability of having been pregnant was estimated for females who received an HPV vaccine compared with females who did not receive the shot. Results suggest that females who received the HPV shot were less likely to have ever been pregnant than women in the same age group who did not receive the shot. If 100% of females in this study had received the HPV vaccine, data suggest the number of women having ever conceived would have fallen by 2 million."
Gardasil: The Decision We Will Always Regret – 7 Years Later – Finding A Long and Never-ending Path to Healing
In February of 2015, Kim Robinson reached out to us to see if we would publish her daughter's story about Gardasil vaccine injuries. It was originally published on SaneVax.org. We had published many stories of Gardasil vaccine injuries before that time, and we have published many since that time. Some of the stories we have published have been very heart-breaking, with some, tragically, ending in death. Yet for some reason, that probably nobody can completely explain, Kim's daughter, Katie, became the "poster child" for the many thousands of Gardasil vaccine injury stories. Her story, published just on the Health Impact News network, has been shared on Facebook over 5 million times over the years, besides all the other social media outlets and other websites where her story appears. So it is with great joy that Health Impact News now publishes Kim Robinson's 7-year follow-up report on her daughter, Katie, just as she graduates from High School this year, showing that with lots of love and hard work, a path to healing is possible. Kim writes: "When my husband and I look back at our lives before Gardasil, it seems dreamlike. We were living our American Dream. We were married, had good jobs, bought a home to raise our two healthy kids in and were leading a vibrant family life. That was until September 2, 2010, when we took our daughter to the Pediatrician and consented to the administration of a vaccine we knew nothing about. Everything changed that day and the damage from one jab of Gardasil almost cost us every part of our American Dream including the life of our precious daughter. The funny thing is that I am a paralegal. I research EVERYTHING before making a purchase or before making important choices especially decisions that affect my children. In hindsight, we can’t imagine why, but we never thought about researching a vaccine. All we knew about vaccines was what we now recognize as well derived marketing slogans such as 'vaccines are safe and effective' or 'vaccines save lives.' Every day, we wish we would have heard just one warning so that we could have saved our precious daughter from years of suffering and quite possibly a lifetime of health issues."
Numerous peer-reviewed published studies have linked an increase in Vitamin D uptake with a decrease in influenza infection during the flu seasons. The logic is easy to understand: winter brings shorter days with less sunlight, when influenza is most prevalent, while influenza outbreaks are rare during the summer months with increased exposure to sunlight. However, other studies have also been published which seem contradictory, showing little to no association of uptake in Vitamin D with a decrease in flu infections. These studies have, obviously, been highlighted more by the corporate-sponsored "mainstream" media in their efforts to market the annual flu vaccine. A study published from researchers in Japan may have unraveled this seeming paradox. In their conclusion, they admit that overall the statistics did not significantly lower the risk of influenza through Vitamin D supplementation, except for one sub-group - those who had NOT received a flu vaccine. They wrote: "In a subgroup of participants without vaccination, vitamin D sufficiency (≥30 ng/mL) was associated with a significantly lower risk of influenza (odds ratio 0.14; 95% confidence interval 0.03-0.74)." Could this be the reason why there are seemingly contradicting results from studies looking at Vitamin D levels and rates of influenza? Could the flu vaccine itself be preventing the body's own immune system from benefiting with higher levels of Vitamin D to naturally fight off flu infections?
The Third Circuit Court of Appeals in Pennsylvania has overturned a lower court's decision to dismiss a nurse's lawsuit against Mount Nittany Medical Center for discriminating against her when she supplied a doctor's exemption to a mandatory tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis vaccine as a condition for continued employment, but was nevertheless terminated from employment for refusing to receive the vaccine. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) also appeared as amicus in the Third Circuit Court in support of Nurse Ruggiero and her claim for discrimination. The case will now go back to District Court in Pennsylvania, where Nurse Ruggiero will attempt to sue and collect damages for a wrongful termination of employment based on refusing a mandatory vaccine for medical reasons.
Earlier this year (January, 2018) Health Impact News reported that Dr. Suzanne Humphries had received gruesome death threats, most likely because of her public views against mandatory vaccines and exposing the dangers of vaccines, which are routinely hidden in the corporate media. Dr. Humphries went public with these death threats in a public livestream video broadcast with Polly Tommey, the co-producer of the film VAXXED, on the VAXXED Facebook Page. The video soon went viral and received over half a million views. These threats were reported to the FBI, but now Natural News is reporting that instead of investigating the threats, they started a criminal investigation against Dr. Humphries, accusing her of being behind the death threats herself.
Last month (May, 2018) we published a report from the vaccine marketing trade publication, Fierce Pharma, that Merck's sales this year were beating financial forecasts, primarily due to its entrance into the China market for its top-selling Gardasil HPV vaccine. Fierce Pharma reported at that time that the Gardasil vaccine was fast-tracked for approval into the China market: "Late last month, the Chinese FDA granted Gardasil 9 a conditional approval only nine days into a review." Now, Fierce Pharma is reporting that Gardasil's acceptance into the China market has produced instant billionaires.
Attorney Who Represents Vaccine Injuries Claims there is no Science Linking Vaccines to Any “Spectrum Disorder”
Attorney Howard Gold of Gold Lawfirm commented on a Health Impact News article published on Vaccine Impact: Vaccinated versus Unvaccinated Study of Mice Links Hepatitis B Vaccine to Autism. Gold represents vaccine victims who suffer injuries due to vaccines before the federal vaccine court. In fact, he states on his website: "Gold Law Firm, LLC. handles no other types of litigation, period." So what was his comment on our article about a peer-reviewed study published in China linking the Hepatitis B vaccine to brain injuries like autism, which the mainstream media never covered? His comment: "The reason why the media does not comment on this story is because there is no scientific basis for it. Vaccine injuries are real, but they are rare. There is no science that supports the contention that ANY vaccine causes a spectrum disorder." If you or your children are injured by vaccines, is this the kind of attorney you would like representing you?
Dr. Zhibin Yao of Sun Yat-sen University (a Top 10 university in China) is not a household name in the American autism community, but perhaps he should be. Not only is he American-educated (University of Pittsburgh) and the author of 33 peer-reviewed studies, but he's also the lead author of two of the most important biological studies ever done analyzing how, exactly, a vaccine can cause autism. Dr. Yao conducted a thorough study of the Hepatitis B vaccine's impact on the brains of mice, and did so versus a control group of mice who received a saline placebo. This is a "gold standard" animal study that you would typically do BEFORE a drug was introduced to the human population. In a world where vaccines were treated like other prescription drugs, Dr. Yao's study would have sent up a giant red flag about the neurotoxicity of the Hepatitis B vaccine. Of course, that didn't happen, and this is the first time you've probably ever heard of this study. Dr. Yao and his colleagues open with a statement that should make every American parent shudder: "The hepatitis B vaccine (HBV) is administered to more than 70% of neonates worldwide. Whether this neonatal vaccination affects brain development is unknown." Even more concerning, is the concluding statement they wrote: “This work reveals for the first time that early HBV vaccination induces impairments in behavior and hippocampal neurogenesis. This work provides innovative data supporting the long suspected potential association of HBV with certain neuropsychiatric disorders such as autism and multiple sclerosis.”
