British Medical Journal Tells Us – Measles Is Not The Scary Disease The Press Want You To Think It Is

____________________Child Health Safety_________________

Magda Taylor of The Informed Parent has been attempting to reintroduce some sense into the mindless panic of the UK media about a small number of measles cases in a small part of Wales in the UK.  Magda has picked some extracts from back copies of The British Medical Journal of the times when measles cases were rife.  She has been finding how relaxed the medical profession was to what was considered then a mild disease.  Today people would think measles has always been public enemy #1 and it has not. 

Compare how one week ago the BBC’s shroud-waver-in-chief Fergus Walsh described measles with how it was described in 1959 a decade before the measles vaccine. 

BBC’s Fergus Walsh last week wrote “Measles is a highly contagious viral infection. Prior to the introduction of a vaccine it was a major public health threat  ….. around one in five infants…

Giving Birth to a Child Artificially

TwinfoetusmainGiving Birth to a Child Artificially

 

By Hwaa Irfan

Until we reach the point of acknowledging and respecting that life is not a mechanical process, but is integrated with the mind, soul and spirit, we will continue to abuse and disrespect the whole process of life and life forms, including our own.

Robert G. Edwards and Patrick Steptoe developed the in vitro fertilization (IVF) procedure that produced the first “test tube baby” in 1978.  As we await the impact on child health both physical and mental born as a result of genetic engineering, last December the findings of those born of infertility treatment was released by the UK Millennium Cohort Study. The study revealed that asthma is more common among children born of infertility treatment than those who are planned for and conceived naturally. That study focused on assisted reproduction technology (ART). ART is multibillion-dollar industry that in 2009 has conceived  60,000 children in a petri dish in the U.S alone from ‘fresh’ or frozen embryos.

The Oxford study arose from findings that children born of in vitro fertilization (IVF) or intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) are 2- 4 times more likely to have asthma, wheezing or be taking anti-asthmatics.

There are considerations in any related study pertaining to the age and state of health of parents who undergo infertility treatment. Accumulative studies have pointed to a rate of 6+% children more likely to have congenital anomalies, whereas the rate for children born normally is at 4%. A May 2012 Australian study of 309,000 Australian children, 6,163 of those conceived through ART found that birth defects occurred in 9.9% of babies conceived using ICSI, 7.0% of babies conceived using IVF that didn’t involve injection of the sperm into the egg, and 5.8% of babies conceived naturally. Overall, the researchers found a 26% increase in risk of birth defects among babies conceived using any form of ART (8% of births) compared to those naturally conceived, 6% of births.

Other consequences have as been noted including lower birth rate, preterm birth, cerebral palsy (more prevalent amongst twins), leukaemia, and perinatal death. In 2011, U.S researchers compared ‘fresh’ and frozen embryos. They found a 35% increased risk of low birth weight in children of ‘fresh’ embryos amongst 57,000 conceived from IVF 2004 -2006 as compared to frozen embryos.

Michèle Hansen of the Telethon Institute for Child Health Research, Australia, probably came closer to the truth when she pointed to evidence that fertility drugs changed the period of time embryos are able to implant in the wall of the uterus.

Informed wannabe parents calculate the risks against their emotions. Those emotions are exploited by the infertility treatment industry. On July 25, 2003 Louise Brown celebrated her 25th birthday. For pioneer Robert G. Edwards of the IVF treatment it was:

“. . .was a fantastic achievement but it was about more than infertility. It was also about issues like stem cells and the ethics of human conception. I wanted to find out exactly who was in charge, whether it was God Himself or whether it was scientists in the laboratory.”

But the achievements of Robert G. Edwards and Patrick Steptoe were about exploiting the emotions of childless couples, and experimenting with their fertility, to find a much needed solution for the global elite, who tend to marry into one another maintaining their own circle of power and wealth, but at the risk of their own fertility.

Schooling By David DeesMarch 1934 Scientific America noted artificial insemination for eugenics ” was made possible to humans a privilege, in posterity, heretofore enjoyed only by thoroughbred plants and animals.”

‘Some 10,000 – 20,000 babies [could be born every year from selected sources, while less than 500 babies per year are now being born to the men of real talent in our country What will be the eugenic effect on the race, if this same tendency grows?”

This is not just the ruminations of a science magazine, but echoes, along concern of the eugenics movement post WWI.

For today’s parents living in countries with decreasing fertility rates, and decreasing economic stability, the intentions of the past is of no concern. Neither is any question as to the growing number of children forced into a life of poverty, and homelessness as the world first GM babies are born. For today’s parents who really want to give love, there are the millions of children in want of a home languishing in orphanages in their own country. For instance those Americans who would rather adopt a Russian child than an American child, if giving love, and sharing love, and nurturing a life, what is the problem with doing all of respecting one’s own in a country that disrespects the sanctity of childhood more than any underdeveloped country.

“Love’s in need of love today, don’t delay, send it in right away!”

With that love, ones society can be healed, and the global elite would have less people to exploit in the name of their own misguided perception of their own divinity.

Court Case Proves Vaccine Cause of Autism*

What;s in a VaccineCourt Case Proves Vaccine Cause of Autism*

By Jeffry John Aufderheide

Do vaccines cause autism? Many parents think so – and the story is very familiar to many of us. Parents often report their child regressing into an “autistic-like state” shortly after being vaccinated. This term has become broadly known as Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Health organizations such as the Centers for Disease Control and the Food and Drug Administration staunchly deny any possible link to vaccines. However, they may want to pay attention to a recent and important court ruling.

According to a document filed on December 13, 2012, Chief Special Master Patricia E. Campbell-Smith awarded Ryan B. Mojabi $969,474.91 for injuries caused by the MMR vaccine. [1] You should also know the money awarded comes from a vaccine tax and not from taking the vaccine manufacturers to court.

Page two of the filing declares Ryan suffered,

a severe and debilitating injury to his brain, described as Autism Spectrum Disorder (‘ASD’).” It continues, he “suffered a Vaccine Table Injury, namely, an encephalopathy as a result of his receipt of the MMR vaccination on December 19, 2003

Encephalopathy is a swelling of the brain due to infection. Is it possible that autism goes by a different name?

If this is the first time you have seen or heard of the term encephalopathy, it may surprise you to see it used in the same context as autism. The big question you may have now is, Can vaccines cause encephalitis, or swelling of the brain?

The answer is yes.

 

Autism Under a Different Name

A study entitled Unanswered Questions from the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program: A Review of Compensated Cases of Vaccine-Induced Brain Injury found the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) acknowledged 83 cases of vaccine-induced brain damage that include autism. Many of these cases include encephalitis, or swelling of the brain.

One resource many doctors and health professionals use for research on health conditions is called The Merck Manual, published by Merck Pharmaceuticals.

The Merck Manual describes encephalitis as, “…inflammation of the brain that occurs when a virus directly infects the brain or when a virus or something else triggers inflammation.”

The Merck Manual explains the causes of encephalitis as:

  1. “A virus directly infects the brain.
  2. A virus that caused an infection in the past becomes reactivated and directly damages the brain.
  3. A virus or vaccine triggers a reaction that makes the immune system attack brain tissue (an autoimmune reaction).”

Parents have been telling doctors for years that their child became autistic after being vaccinated. Even the most basic scientific literature points to the vaccines as the trigger, so why is the big problem of vaccination being ignored?

If encephalitis and autism are related, you can see the huge problem vaccine manufacturers would have on their hands.

Maybe the real reason the1986 National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act was passed was to protect pharmaceutical companies from the growing tide of vaccine-injured children.

Under this law, no parent can sue a vaccine manufacturer.

Conclusion

Parents consistently report having a typically healthy child prior to being vaccinated. The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP) has already recognized vaccine-induced brain damage, including autism, as a vaccine injury.

I’m glad Ryan Mojabi was awarded a large amount of money as his life and his family will never be the same. I suspect there are many other children suffering the same fate he did. The sad truth is that many more thousands of children who are injured by vaccines will never be compensated.

If you decide to vaccinate your children, you do so at your own risk. No vaccine manufacturer is liable for your child’s vaccine-related injury or death from a recommended vaccine.

Caught Between Taking the Vaccine, and Refusing the Vaccine

Caught Between Taking the Vaccine, and Refusing the Vaccine

In November 08, 2012 – A hospital employee says she faces unfair disciplinary action for refusing to get a flu shot. Affiliate KTVI reports.

 

One conscientious Australian former police officer, Sergeant Christopher Savage of the Queensland Police Service has provided health reporter, Christina England with evidence that the police have been covering up vaccine injury cases by calling them Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. They are also falsely accusing already distressed parents of manslaughter because they have been trained to search for signs of abuse, and foul play.

Savage had no prior opinion one way or another before joining the police force, but that changed when along with his colleagues, Savage took the Hepatitis B vaccine in 1989.

After receiving the shot, Savage experienced total exhaustion, and was bed-ridden for two weeks. The vaccine was ruled out as a possible cause by his doctor, but doubts too this day has remained with Savage.

Regarding SIDS, Savage gave a signed statement to the JP N. Newbury (Qualified Number 10175) of the Gympie Magistrates Court office stating his belief that vaccines are the causes of SIDS, and that innocent parents stand accuse with false charges of manslaughter. Savage’s statement details several cases whereby a child is fit and healthy on the day of the vaccination, but deteriorate after receiving the vaccine. Along with the grief involved, the parents are subject to interrogation as prime suspects, and their homes are ransacked for forensic evidence.

 “I understand that a person who intentionally makes a false statement in a statutory declaration is guilty of an offense under section 11 of the Statutory Declarations Act of 1959, and I believe that the statements in this declaration are true in every particular.”

Savage does not accuse the police force with intent, but he sees them as unaware of the possibilities of a case. They have been trained to see and identify Shaken Baby Syndrome as the cause of infantile death with the signs of bruising, bruised and broken ribs, swollen cerebral cortex, and inconsistent recall of the events. CPR by paramedics can cause bruising and broken ribs.

In Leslie Botha’s Unveiling the Culprit – Is Foreign DNA Contamination the Autistic Villain behind Biologic Vaccine Injuries it is revealed how foreign DNA fragments (recombinant DNA) have been found in child victims of vaccine injury cases. Botha has presented evidence to the FDA in 2010 on the large amount of vaccines injuries around the Human Papilloma Virus vaccines Gardasil, and Cervarix. Also in 2012, Botha provided science-based information at the British Society for Ecological Medicine Conference Gardasil and Cervarix. Yet, the American Biologic Safety Association (ABSA) classifies recombinant DNA has a biohazard!

Maybe the genocide of boys by King Herod was much more merciful than the undeclared campaign to reduce the population (both at home and abroad) in the name of herd immunity i.e. vaccine campaigns.

It has often been said that the unscientific, but persistent application of mass vaccinations are but a means to a) reduce the fertility of a nation, and b) to make the commoner a lifetime customer of pharmaceutical companies.

As the U.K. is in the midst of an HPV vaccine campaign, it is the British Medical Journal that brings to light a case in point, that of  a 16-year old Australian  girl now facing full-blown menopause. No other evidence within her medical history contributes towards this reality, a reality whereby her ovaries have literally shut down with all evidence pointing to three Gardasil vaccines. She has not taken any form of oral contraceptives that could mask the situation.

Imposing Chemotherapy on Children!

Imposing Chemotherapy on Children!

If you have ever wondered why some people will get the flu for example, and others not, there are several factors involved:

  • Level of health
  • Level of medication for previous illnesses
  • Level of vaccinations for previous illnesses
  • Ability to cope with stress
  • Level of positive outlook

On the ability of level of stress, we all have different sensibilities that if affected, will also compromise our immune system, and physiological, emotional, and psychological integrity. In other words, we all react differently!  This also applies to medical treatment, we all react differently, and within that some react sooner or later, and sometimes later can skip a generation!

So why is it that the mainstream (allopathic) medical profession continues to treat everyone the same despite the billions of reports, research, reviews and studies which proves all of the above!

This is what has to be born in mind when we look at the picture of actor Patrick Swayze above, and  a true event conveyed by Elizabeth Renter. The case at hand refers to an 8-year old, Sarah Parisian, from Minnesota, U.S. whom the doctors tried to impose chemotherapy upon her.

Sarah had brain tumor, 90% of which was removed. However, the doctors wanted Sarah to continue with chemotherapy for a whole year in order to kill th rest of the cancer cells.

Sarah’s parents were not convinced having already observed how Sarah was suffering greatly with nausea, weight loss, hair loss, and sore throat. Also Sarah was sleeping 22 hours daily, what kind of life is that!

So naturally, Sarah’s parents wanted to seek an alternative to the dismay of the doctors, who took the case to court on the basis that her parents wish was detrimental to Sarah blind to how detrimental the treatment she had received so far.

In the meantime, time was passing, Sarah was not getting any better, and her parents were subjected to emotional and psychological stress through this court case.

Finally, it was the parents who agreed on a compromise, chemotherapy to be combined with alternative treatment, but this is a contradiction in itself. This is yet another case, whereby the parents are being threatened with a loss of custody.

The goal of any treatment should be about returning one’s state of health to a state of normalcy, but the doctors approach was using a form of treatment to eliminate a serious health problem and replacing it with another serious health problem – one that the medical profession cannot treat! How can we expect  chemotherapy that uses a carcinogenic to cure cancer to work!

Chemotherapy Kills Quicker Than Cancer!

When researchers at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle were exploring cancer, they were looking to find why cancer cells are so resilient. Instead what they found is that chemotherapy kills the patient slowly.

Chemotherapy does not target the cancer cells, but kills ALL cells, i.e. the healthy ones included. It is like takingan antibacterial mouth wash when a simple salt water solution tha can be made at home will do a more effective job. Antibacterial mouth washes kill the needed and healthy bacteria in the mouth. Chemotherapy has the same effect on human cells.

The findings of the Seattle research is that chemotherapy heavily damages healthy cells, and causes these healthy cells to release a protein (WNT16B) that fuels the growth of tumors, tumors that are resistant to treatment!

The researchers found that there is significant DNA damage when they analyzed tissue that had received chemotherapy from men with prostrate cancer. This research only confirms the findings of previous research which proves that chemotherapy kills patients more quickly than the cancer itself! In addition, the drugs used to treat cancer increase the mass of tumors. As explained by co-authorPeter Nelson of theFred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center:

“WNT16B, when secreted, would interact with nearby tumour cells and cause them to grow, invade, and importantly, resist subsequent therapy.”

If the medical profession were to be truely scientific in their approach, they would add these findings to the advice they give to parents so that parents have informed choice. If parents continued to believe that chemotherapy as the best choice for their children, then the responsibility would be on them, but that reaction, that blind belief is based on years of the medical profession convincing the public that they are god and can cure all!

One of many reasons, in fact the main reason why governments are establishing means to prevent the proliferation of knowledge on forms of alternative medicine, healing, health foods etc, is:

a)      To complete handover of our health to the medical profession

b)      To allow research into the beneficial phyto-chemicals (plant chemicals) of natural organic foods to extract, exploit and package those beneficial phyto-chemicals for the pharmaceutical industry for further profits.

The result is that we are removed from being able to act in the best interest of our own health as in the case of Jane (see the link below)

For example a simple spice like turmeric (Indian cuisine use it to make rice yellow), which one can buy at the moment to add to one’s diet has the capacity to reduce tumors, and combat the spread of cancer! Turmeric is not alone in this task either, there are other foods like garlic, ginger, and papaya.

However, most of us in the process of the development of contemporary medicine are far more used to handing our health over to the ‘experts’. For that lack of faith in ourselves, we should then be encouraged to be less passive, and to seek reputable experts within alternative forms of medicine which exists on every continent, which would be far less demanding on our purse strings, in the long run our health, and we would learn about our own bodies in the process!

Students and Parents Rebel Against RFIDs

Students and Parents Rebel Against RFIDs

 

By Hwaa Irfan

Katie Deolloz, a member of Consumers Against Supermarket Privacy Invasion and Numbering, CASPIAN told WND that parents and students from San Antonio’s Northside Independent School District (NISD), Texas confronted the school board on 31st August, 2012 about their concerns over privacy and other related issues. The privacy pertains to the implementation of RFID chips  – spy chips, that students and staff are now oblidged to wear on their schools clothes.

This is not a simple parent-student reaction, but a carefully thought out response to the use of RFIDs. A Position Statement dated August 21, 2012 was presented by CASPIAN which lists the endorsers as:

–          American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)
–          Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF)
–          FoeBuD e.V., Big Brother Awards Germany
–          Big Brother Watch
–          Citizens’Council for Health Freedom
–          Constitutional Alliance
–          Freedom Force International
–          Friends of Privacy USA
–          The Identity Project
–          OK-SAFE, Inc.
–          PrivacyActivism
–          Private Citizen, Inc.
–          Beat the Chip
–          We the People Will Not Be Chipped
–          511 Campaign
–          Edward Hasbrouck Author, Privacy Expert
–          Katina Michael, Ph.D., Implant Expert
–          MG Michael, Ph.D., Implant Researcher
–          Judith McGeary, Liberty Activist
–          Virginia Rezmiersky, Ph.D.
–          Claire Wolfe; Author, Freedom Advocate

CASPIAN’s Position Statement serves to educate the school board on the nature of RFID technology

“RF” stands for “radio frequency.” Like the radio waves that transmit sound to an AM radio, RFID radio waves can travel through walls and doors. “ID” stands for “identification,” since RFID is designed to identify, track, and monitor physical objects.

RFID systems have two main components:

–        RFID tags and

–        RFID readers

The Statement educative process also informs how RFIDs can be used to:

“…trigger additional monitoring devices, like video cameras and audio recording systems. For example, a central database could be instructed to trigger a recorder when select RFID tags are identified in a specified location. This can make more in-depth tracking and monitoring of selected objects and individuals possible.

The Position Statement justifiably argues:

RFID tracking violates expectations of reasonable privacy and threatens civil liberties in our schools:

  • Dehumanizing uses: While there is an expectation of supervision and guidance in schools, monitoring the detailed behaviors of individuals can be demeaning. For example, RFID reading devices in school restrooms could monitor how long a student or teacher spends in a bathroom stall.
  • Violation of free speech and association. RFID tracking software can monitor associations of RFID tags, which could dissuade individuals from exercising their rights to freedom of thought, speech and association. For example, students might avoid seeking counsel when they know their RFID tags will document their presence at locations like counselor and School Resource Officer (SRO) offices.
  •  Violation of conscience and religious freedom. Many individuals object to RFID systems on the basis of their deeply held philosophical or religious beliefs. Schools are required to make accommodations for students on the basis of these beliefs.
  •  Unauthorized use. While RFID systems may be developed for use in a school, the RFID tags may be read covertly anywhere by anyone with the right reading device. Since RFID reading devices work by silent, invisible radio waves and the reading devices can be hidden, unauthorized or covert uses can be nearly impossible to detect. In addition, information collected on systems could be shared or compromised without individuals’ knowledge or consent. For example, a student’s location could be monitored from a distance by a jealous girlfriend or boyfriend, stalker, or pedophile. Individuals run this tracking risk any place they carry or wear a school-issued RFID tagged item—even miles from the campus.
  • Hidden placement of tags. RFID tags can be embedded into/onto objects like books and documents without the knowledge of the individual who obtains those items. As radio waves travel easily and silently through fabric, plastic, and other materials, it is possible to read RFID tags sewn into clothing or affixed to objects contained in purses, shopping bags, suitcases, and more. Monitoring tagged items could amount to unreasonable search.
  • Hidden readers. Tags can be read from a distance, not restricted to line of sight, by readers that can be incorporated invisibly into nearly any environment where human beings or items congregate. RFID readers have already been experimentally embedded in bathroom fixtures, floor tiles, woven into carpeting and floor mats, hidden in doorways, and seamlessly incorporated into shelving and counters, making it virtually impossible for someone to know when or if he or she was being “scanned.”
  • Dangerous misinformation. Relying on RFID for security rather than human observation creates new security risks. Hacking, spoofing and metal can easily defeat these systems. Wrapping an RFID tag in tinfoil or putting it in one of the latest metal wallets can make it unreadable. Hacking, spoofing, and tag loss are also risks. For example, a student could be counted as present on campus by virtue of his or her RFID identity tag, but be miles away before his or her disappearance were noticed. It would be possible for a kidnapper to abduct a student and the system to be unaware if a student’s RFID tag were left on campus. In another example, a student could frame another student by placing a copy of another student’s tag in the vicinity of a campus crime. RFID security experts have demonstrated that RFID tags can be cloned within seconds.
  • Potential health risks. RFID systems emit electromagnetic radiation, and there are lingering questions about whether human health might be affected in environments where the reading devices are pervasive. This concern and the dehumanizing effects of ubiquitous surveillance may place additional stress on students, parents, and teachers.
  • Conditioning to tracking and monitoring. Young people learn about the world and prepare for their futures while in school. Tracking and monitoring them in their development may condition them to accept constant monitoring and tracking of their whereabouts and behaviors. This could usher in a society that accepts this kind of treatment as routine rather than an encroachment of privacy and civil liberties.

The Position Statement lists a set of recommendations, some of which are contradictory, conditions, and concludes:

“Because of the serious privacy, health, and logistical downsides of RFID in schools, we believe there should be a moratorium on its deployment unless there is sufficient evidence of its safety and effectiveness. Children should never be used as test subjects for technology, no matter what their socio-economic status. If schools choose to move forward without complete information and are willing to accept the associated liability, they should have provisions in place to adhere to the principles of fair information practices and respect individuals’ rights to opt out based on their conscientious and religious objections to the technology.”

San Antonio NISD has yet to respond, which is not surprising if one adopts a practice without thinking it through! We all do it at some time or another.

The school board approved the spy system in May 2012, and their decision was made known through Spychips,  a website run by RFID experts Katherine Albrecht and Liz McIntyre, which also informs of the technology being implemented in Brazilian schools with the best of intentions, to improve safety and security, without fully realizing the wider implications- applications. However teo school districts in Texas, Spring, and Santa Fe have been using RFIDs for years, which has helped to earn them financial incentives on the basis of improved school attendence, but that is just like dangling a carrot to ensure the system in implemented, and met with unsuspecting parental approval.

Protests have been taking place in front of San Antonio, but there is another storm in the making, the issue of enforced vaccinations. All schools in the NISD schools in the district have a “No Shots, No School Policy.” Texas has made it law, and that law envolves a list of the following molatov cocktail of vaccinations:

  • DTP/DTaP/DT/TD/Tdap
  • Polio
  • Measles/Mumps/Rubella
  • HIB
  • Hepatitis Type A
  • Type B
  • Varicella (Chicken Pox)
  • Pneumococcal (PCV7)
  • Menactra (Meningococcal Conjugate Vaccine)

Parents can seek exemption on the basis of “significant health risk”, and reasons of conscience including religious beliefs, which is a chance for parents to become more fully informed. Backed with a solid case, parents can contact Texas Department of Health at (800) 252-9152. It might be worth finding out what the actual process is, and loopholes before embarking on a process that might make it difficult to obtain exemption!

That reality was confronted in October 2012 wth what will be implemented in 112 schools across the country. Students who refuse to don the tags, are being harassed by teachers, and prevented from participating in certain school activities including school elections, the use of the cafeteria, and the library.

The girl’s father, Steve Hernandez, told WND that the school was somewhat willing to work with his daughter, but said that the family is unwilling to “agree to stop criticizing the program” and publically endorse it.

Heather Fazio of Texans for Accountable Government filed a Freedom of Information Act request for $30 and received the names and addresses of every student in the school district.

“Using this information along with an RFID reader means a predator could use this information to determine if the student is at home and then track them wherever they go. These chips are always broadcasting so anyone with a reader can track them anywhere,” she said

That predator could be the government itself!
