It’s flu season and many take vaccinations for it.
It’s difficult to discern which is more harmful: the flu (particularly striking the very young or elderly) or the vaccine itself.
It’s not a call we’re qualified to make.
It’s a call perhaps no one is qualified to make, at this point (including medical “experts”).
The business of vaccinations is certainly a huge one. The problem: vaccinations are not natural and interpose foreign elements, including metals like aluminum, and in some cases mercury, into our systems.
Reports of severe reactions to that are not rare — and too many parents have noted a sudden and radical effect on their children after they’ve received vaccine “cocktails” or combos, including a descent into autism (mercury, used less than it used to be, but perhaps causing residual effect, can affect the brain).
And so many have asked, as have we, through the years: Might it be that the epidemic of autism as well as “attention-deficit” syndrome are linked? Or at least: why so many kids with focus problems?
One of the proponents of “attention-deficit-disorder” diagnoses, Dr. Keith Conners, notes that recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show such a diagnosis has been made in fifteen percent of high school-age children, and that the number of children on medication for the disorder soared (take in these numbers) to 3.5 million from 600,000 in 1990. He questioned the rising rates of diagnosis and called them “a national disaster of dangerous proportions” (according to The New York Times).
A six-fold increase since 1990? “The numbers make it look like an epidemic. Well, it’s not. It’s preposterous,” Dr. Conners, a psychologist and professor emeritus at Duke University, said in an interview. “This is a concoction to justify the giving out of medication at unprecedented and unjustifiable levels.”
When it comes to a deficit in attention, going back to the old way of life — simpler food (far less sugar) and letting kids play outside far more than school currently do — might go a long way.
What we probably do not need: all the newfangled drugs they treat “attention-deficit disorder” with.
In fact, in many cases a decreased attention span has afflicted us all and may be more the result of a lack of discipline and exposure to television, cell phones, and the internet than anything physical.
Meanwhile, we must ask whether are we pushing kids too hard when it comes to the intellectual side.
A study reported recently in School Psychology Quarterly underscored the importance of recess for kids with ADHD: “Results showed that levels of inappropriate behavior were consistently higher on days when participants [with ADHD] did not have recess, compared to days when they did have it.”
As for autism, which gets more serious: A while ago actor Robert DeNiro, who has an autistic child, joined a press conference to expose the autism-vaccine connection. He was joined by Robert Kennedy Jr., who spearheads the drive to expose what they see as a clear connection.
President Trump is very sympathetic. As the American Conservative reported:
“Since at least 2007, Trump has suggested that the recent ‘epidemic’ of autism might be related to current immunization practices. He is not categorically against immunization—in fact, he is ‘totally in favor of vaccines,’ as he says—but he suggests that the rate and quantity of injections given to infants, per the recommended immunization schedule, may contribute to incidents of autism. In Trump’s words, ‘massive combined inoculations’ and ‘simultaneous vaccinations’ may be producing a wave of ‘doctor-inflicted autism.’” (Some wonder if his son Barron has been affected; Barron was born in 2006.)
Meanwhile, a study at Yale University recently reported that “patients diagnosed with neuropsychiatric disorders like obsessive-compulsive disorder and anorexia nervosa were more likely to have received vaccinations three months prior to their diagnoses” and “one vaccine in particular: the influenza vaccine, which was associated with higher rates of obsessive-compulsive disorder, anorexia, anxiety disorder and tic disorder.”
Pretty rampant in our time, aren’t these “afflictions”? Even some allergies have been connected, perhaps due to the reaction of our immune systems to the foreign substances — some of which, in a few vaccines, were originally derived from cell lines extracted from aborted infants. (Here’s a list of vaccines that involve that. Or go to this site.)
That is evil (as is profiting on health), and evil bears poor fruit.
