A recent peer-reviewed study comparing health outcomes of vaccinated and unvaccinated children, provisionally published in a journal of public health and assigned a DOI number (a digital object identifier given by publishers to identify content and provide a persistent link on the internet), found that completely unvaccinated children have less chronic disease and a lower risk of autism than vaccinated children. According to the abstract, the team of four scientists found that completely unvaccinated children were significantly more likely to get chickenpox and whooping cough but significantly less likely to suffer from ear infections, pneumonia, allergies, and brain or central nervous system disorders, including autism. In this investigative report, Dr. Jennifer Margulis interviews medical doctors, health experts, and parents, parents who have both vaccinated and unvaccinated children, confirming the conclusion of this new study that unvaccinated children are generally healthier than vaccinated children.
The Library Journal, which librarians read to decide what books to buy for their collections, announced this week that libraries should not carry the new book, The Vaccine-Friendly Plan: Dr. Paul’s Safe and Effective Approach to Immunity and Health, From Pregnancy Through Your Child’s Teen Years, which I co-authored with Paul Thomas, M.D., a Dartmouth-trained pediatrician who has over 13,000 patients in his pediatric practice in Portland, Oregon. Don’t make this book available to library patrons. Don’t read this book. Don’t even have a conversation about safety issues with childhood vaccines. Instead, let’s just ignore the fact that the current rates of autism are at least 1 in 68, according to the CDC (possibly as high as 1 in 45, also according to CDC data), that there’s a growing body of very disturbing scientific evidence showing that acetaminophen (the main ingredient in Tylenol) is triggering autism, and that American children today are plagued with allergies, asthma, and other chronic diseases (like Type 1 juvenile diabetes and leaky gut syndrome) than ever before. But following Dr. Paul’s recommendations to feed a baby and small child a real food, whole foods diet, stop using Tylenol, and making judicious decisions about vaccination is too difficult?
The Vaccine-Friendly Plan is a classic case in point in applying the old saying, “Don’t judge a book by its cover,” as there’s so much more to the book than the title. And if you’re a new mom, the information in this book will save you from sleepless nights and unnecessary late night phone calls to your pediatrician. The Vaccine-Friendly Plan is an easy-to-read book on how to raise a healthy child despite vaccines, so don’t expect to learn just about vaccines. Be ready to learn everything from what chemicals to avoid while pregnant to how to breastfeed to how to talk to your teenagers about alcohol and even intimacy. As a mom to grown children, I can see how this book can help new moms not to be overwhelmed while educating them so they can make informed decisions. I wish I had this book when I was an anxious new mom, along with other books I read. You can never learn enough when it comes to the health of your child.
Del Bigtree, producer of the controversial film "VAXXED," recently appeared on the National Safe Child Show with Tammi Stefano in Los Angeles. Before taking on this film project together with Dr. Andrew Wakefield on the MMR vaccine fraud, Mr. Bigtree was the producer of the popular daytime medical show "The Doctors." Mr. Bigtree states that when he learned about the top scientist whistle blower at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), that he knew this was the biggest story of his life, and that this was "bigger than Watergate." Since the 2004 study that supposedly proved there was no link between the MMR vaccine and autism was published by the CDC, more than one million children have been diagnosed with autism, and now one of the study's authors at the CDC has revealed that data was concealed that actually showed there was indeed a link between the vaccine and autism in some children. In the second half of the National Safe Child Show, Tammi Stefano interviewed Jennifer Margulis, Ph.D., and investigative journalist and the author of several books, including "Your Baby Your Way" and "The Vaccine-Friendly Plan" that she co-authored with Dr. Paul Thomas, M.D. Dr. Paul Thomas is a board-certified fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, and he agrees with actor Robert De Niro that we need to learn the truth about vaccines, and that the science is anything but "settled." Dr. Thomas is not anti-vaccine, but delays or forgoes certain vaccines depending on the needs of the children in his practice. Margulis reveals in her interview that in her experience as a professional award-winning journalist, she has seen censorship in journalism on the vaccine topics. She attributes this phenomenon partly on the ignorance of journalists and their unwillingness to explore both sides of the debate. She believes many journalists erroneously believe that if the government states vaccines are safe, then it must be true. She reminds her colleagues in the media that traditionally the media's job has always been to question the government, and act as a "watch dog" over what the government was claiming.
Investigative reporter Jennifer Margulis has asked Health Impact News to re-publish a book review she recently wrote, which was published by The Washington Independent Review of Books. She reports that it was among the top five most read reviews for October 2014 which the Washington Independent Review of Books publicized in a second article. Then the editor pulled the review off their website. Why? Citing a supposed "conflict of interest" that Margulis states was cleared by the editors prior to publication, Margulis states the real reason she believes it was censored was because: I “express outrage that newborn infants are routinely vaccinated for hep B” and I wonder why I was encouraged to vaccinate my daughter “against a disease she had no chance of catching.”
