At least one in six American children (roughly 17%) has a diagnosed developmental disability. No matter which once-rare disorder one considers—learning disabilities, autism spectrum disorder (ASD), attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), tics, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) or emotional disturbances—each has witnessed a dramatic escalation over the past several decades. A systematic literature review recently published in Acta Neurobiologiae Experimentalis contends that these trends are at crisis proportions. The crisis is spiraling out of control, with society-wide impacts on services, institutions, families and, especially, boys. There are at least two boys for every girl with a neurodevelopmental disorder. For ASD and ADHD, the male-to-female ratio is roughly four and five to one, respectively. Genetics cannot explain this consistent sex-specific pattern. What can explain it is children’s vastly increased exposure to and bioaccumulation of chemical neurotoxins at the same time that the explosion in neurodevelopmental disorders has unfolded. In fact, the skewed sex ratio is, in and of itself, a vital clue that can help pinpoint major causes of neurodevelopmental disorders. Unfortunately, research funding priorities in the U.S. are highly distorted, as the field of ASD research illustrates. In 2013, the federal government awarded more than 38 times as much funding ($291 million) to ASD researchers studying genetics as to those studying ASD’s environmental aspects ($7.5 million)—even though genetics “only addresses at best about 20% of the ASD population.”
There is an old saying that you are what you eat. Today, many more people understand the importance of reading food ingredient labels. We check for chemicals, trans fat and sugar content, whether or not the food has been genetically modified, and how full of vitamins and nutrients the food is before we buy it. And yet, when we go to the doctor, how many times do we check the ingredients in the vaccines a doctor recommends? By federal law, drug companies selling vaccines in the U.S. must publish information about vaccine ingredients in the manufacturer package insert that comes with vials of vaccines shipped to doctors’ offices, public health clinics and pharmacies. Here are some of the ingredients that may be in the vaccines your doctor recommends: live weakened viruses, killed bacteria, aluminum, mercury, formaldehyde, Polysorbate 80, Triton x-100, Hydrocortisone, Sugar, Yeast, milk and egg protein, virus like protein particles, MSG, Gelatin, squalene, antibiotics, calf serum, human, animal and insect DNA. Not every ingredient has been adequately tested for negative effects on the brain and immune system. And because every person is unique, with a different genetic and epigenetic heritage, a different microbiome, and a different health history, not every person reacts the same way to vaccine ingredients. Before you take a risk, find out what it is. It’s your health, your family, your choice.
Readers of Health Impact News are all too familiar with news about corruption inside the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The CDC is responsible, for example, for protecting the nation's health and ensuring that pharmaceutical products like vaccines are safe and effective. Yet, the CDC is also the largest purchaser of vaccines from the pharmaceutical industry, spending billions of dollars of taxpayer funds every year to purchase these vaccines. Many top executives and leaders at the CDC also leave the agency to take very lucrative positions with pharmaceutical companies, revealing a revolving door policy between the government and Big Pharma. A CDC whistleblower that revealed corruption in vaccine autism studies a few years ago still has not been subpoenaed by Congress to testify, and this scandal at the CDC that is seen by some as "Bigger than Watergate" was the focus of the popular film VAXXED which was released in 2016. There was great hope that with the new administration in place at the White House that the President and his staff would clean things up at the CDC. However, with new allegations of conflicts of interest with the current CDC director, who just resigned, the World Mercury Project Team, led by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., issued a press release this week showing that the nation is still waiting for real reform at the CDC.
CDC’s strategy to use fear to ramp up flu vaccine sales requires the agency to exaggerate both flu risks and vaccine efficacy. Pharmaceutical companies and public health officials vastly overstate flu cases and deaths in order to market influenza “as a threat of great proportions.” Simple fact-checking shows that since October 2017, only 14.7% of the almost 447,000 “flu” specimens tested by clinical laboratories working with CDC have tested positive for influenza. This proportion has remained relatively constant for the past two decades. According to the British Medical Journal’s Peter Doshi, “Even the ideal influenza vaccine…can only deal with a small part of the ‘flu’ problem because most ‘flu’ appears to have nothing to do with influenza.” Actual influenza deaths not only rank lower than the major killers such as heart disease and cancer but also are lower down in the mortality rankings than ulcers and hernias. Incredibly, even though most “flu” is not influenza and flu vaccine effectiveness is as low as 10%, public health authorities keep telling everyone from six months of age on up (including pregnant women) that the flu shot is “better than nothing” and the “best tool we have.” However, there are many unanswered questions about influenza vaccines that warrant rigorous investigation. Recent peer-reviewed studies suggest that the shots may actually make people more susceptible to serious problems (as with the recently recalled dengue vaccine) and that getting flu shots year after year may be lowering subsequent vaccine effectiveness as well as drastically increasing risks for Alzheimer’s disease. Getting vaccinated against one strain of influenza may increase risks for other severe respiratory viruses. Unfortunately, most members of the public are not reading this alarming science. The public should make health decisions based on sound science, not scare tactics.
Texas Mom Blamed for Baby’s Accidental Gardasil Vaccine Injuries Fights to Get Medically Kidnapped Daughter Back
The Gardasil vaccine is not intended to be given to children under 9 years of age and has not been studied in babies. It is a vaccine developed for sexually active young women to prevent the humanpapilloma virus and cervical cancer. In recent years, it has been given to teen-age boys as well. It is perhaps the most controversial vaccine in America and around the world today. Yet when a 4 month old baby in Texas was mistakenly given the shot intended for her teenage brother, her mother has been blamed for causing the symptoms that followed. Everywhere Anita Vasquez turned for answers for little Aniya's condition, it seemed that no one she talked to was willing to make the obvious connection between the vaccine and her illness. In the effort to cover-up or deny any effects of the medical error, a family is being sacrificed. In a cruel twist of irony, the fact that Anita refuses to give up her quest for answers and the fact that she has medical knowledge (because she is a nurse by trade) is being viewed as "evidence" that she has Munchausen syndrome by proxy (or "factitious disorder") - a rare mental disorder by which someone, usually a parent, intentionally makes a child sick in order to gain attention. Baby Aniya was seized by Child Protective Services on May 2, 2017, and placed into foster care with strangers. Her big brother has struggled with blaming himself ever since. He loves his baby sister very much. In the latest development in their story, CPS social workers have cut off all of 14 year old Alfred's visits with Aniya. The Vasquez family just wants to be a family again, but CPS appears to be blaming everyone except the most likely culprit - the vaccine that she never should have received, the vaccine that she was mistakenly given right before her symptoms started.
Did you ever wonder what happened to Zika? You should, as our Government gave the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) $1.1 billion to study and develop a vaccine against Zika. Where did that money go and what happened to Zika? The CDC and the other Powers-That-Be should be asking for money to study why autism has increased at epidemic rates in our children. Instead of asking for billions to study a benign virus, perhaps we should be studying our children. President Trump, when he was campaigning for office, stated that he wanted to drain the swamp in Washington D.C. Let’s start draining the swamp by asking the CDC for the $1.1 billion dollars it wasted studying Zika and developing a vaccine that was never needed. Better yet, let’s demand to know how this money was spent.

Former CDC Director that Approved Gardasil Vaccine and Became Head of Merck’s Vaccine Division Named “Woman of the Year”
It has recently been reported that Merck Pharmaceutical Company's leading lady, Dr. Julie Gerberding, has won yet another impressive title, being named Woman of the Year 2018 by the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association (HBA). Some of the achievements obtained by Dr. Gerberding noted by the HBA include: "Her leadership in modernizing the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), executive vice president for strategic communications, global public policy and population health and chief patient officer, of Merck & Co., Inc., as president of Merck Vaccines... help(ing) make the company’s vaccines increasingly more available and affordable to people in emerging markets and some of the most resource-limited countries in the world…." Since the Gardasil vaccine was approved while Gerberding was head of the CDC, many young girls who have received the Gardasil shots have gone into pre-mature menopause, suffering from Primary Ovarian Failure. These girls will never be able to bear children. Some would ask the question: Since Gerberding is now in charge of "population health" at Merck and is being recognized as making "vaccines increasingly more available and affordable to people in emerging markets and some of the most resource-limited countries in the world," was this part of the plan all along with the Gardasil vaccine? Others would ask, since the Gardasil vaccine is one of the most controversial vaccines in the world, with many lawsuits currently being litigated for injuries and deaths outside the U.S., and many countries outside the U.S. no longer recommending the vaccine, would it be more appropriate to name Dr. Julie Gerberding "one of the most evil people in medicine today,” as did the website Medicine News in 2016?
Former Medical Director of Cleveland Clinic Speaks Out After Being Fired for Questioning Flu Vaccine
Last January, the Medical Director and Chief Operating Officer of the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute, medical doctor Daniel Neides, was fired due to an article he wrote questioning vaccine safety. Dr. Neides became sick after receiving a flu shot, which caused him to examine more closely the ingredients included in the influenza vaccine. "I, like everyone else, took the advice of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) - the government - and received a flu shot. I chose to receive the preservative free vaccine, thinking I did not want any thimerasol (i.e. mercury) that the "regular" flu vaccine contains. Makes sense, right? Why would any of us want to be injected with mercury if it can potentially cause harm? However, what I did not realize is that the preservative-free vaccine contains formaldehyde. WHAT? How can you call it preservative-free, yet still put a preservative in it? And worse yet, formaldehyde is a known carcinogen. Yet, here we are, being lined up like cattle and injected with an unsafe product. Within 12 hours of receiving the vaccine, I was in bed feeling miserable and missed two days of work with a terrible cough and body aches." Dr. Neides was almost instantly branded as an anti-science heretic, promoting "harmful myths and untruths about vaccinations," in spite of the fact that he made it clear that he was not anti-vaccine. So how does one rise to the position of "Medical Director and Chief Operating Officer" of the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic while being a heretic and anti-science?
In 1991, US public health authorities began recommending that all infants get the hepatitis B (HepB) vaccine, stipulating that they receive three doses within the first six months of life, starting at birth. The World Health Organization (WHO) followed suit with its own recommendation in 1992, instructing countries to vaccinate from birth even where hepatitis B virus was uncommon. Two 2018 studies (one in the US and one in India) take a closer look at the outcomes and implications of these blanket prescriptions. Although the studies focus on different aspects of their countries’ respective vaccine programs, both are cautionary tales, highlighting the fact that one-size-fits-all vaccine recommendations frequently steamroll over important biological risks and immune system subtleties, thereby introducing troublesome unintended consequences.
