Effects of Multiple Vaccines

Multiple Vaccinations 
International Medical Veritas Association
     According to the Institute of Medicine (IOM) over the past 2 decades, the pediatric immunization schedule has grown more complicated.  In 1980, infants received immunizations against 4 diseases; today that number has risen to 11 diseases. The National Vaccine Information Center indicates that between 1964 and 1992 the U.S. added six new vaccines to the mandatory vaccination program which already includes multiple vaccines, such as the DPT (diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus) and MMR (measles-mumps-rubella) vaccines. Currently, CDC recommends vaccination against 11 vaccine preventable diseases. One hundred years ago, children received 1 vaccine (the smallpox vaccine). Forty years ago, children received 5 vaccines routinely (diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, polio, and smallpox vaccines) and as many as 8 shots by 2 years of age. Today, children receive 11 vaccines routinely and as many as 20 shots by 2 years of age. (See Table 1 
     Because some of these vaccines have to be administered more than once, a child may receive up to 23 shots by the time he or she is 2 years of age. Depending on the timing, a child might receive up to five shots during one visit to the doctor. And now with the recent CDC recommendations for childhood flu shots the number of vaccines rises to 12 and the possible numbers of injections received by 2 years of age increases by another three shots, some of which contain full strength thimerosal. Recent national surveys found that 23% of parents questioned the number of shots recommended for their children, and 25% were concerned that vaccines might weaken the immune system.[i] The Institute of Medicine agrees stating that "approximately one quarter of parents believe that infants receive too many vaccines than are good for them."

·        In 1900, children received the smallpox vaccine.
     The most recent increases in the childhood vaccine schedule are just the beginning of a series of planned vaccines the pharmaceutical companies have in store for our children.According to Dr. Thomas Saari, spokesperson for the AAP, many more vaccines are in the works. In an interview in 2004 he said, "We project over the next ten years that we'll add one to two new vaccines a year."[iii] Dr. Andrew Wakefield recently said, "The next few years are likely to see the introduction of ever greater numbers of vaccines and the possibility of using combination vaccines containing up to 16 different infectious diseases, is already being discussed in the US."[iv] In England, the British Health Ministry has just announced the introduction of a new five in one shot, without offering extensive proof of its safety.[v]
     Health and medical officials assure the public that the practice of administering as many as nine vaccines in a single day is completely safe. "This is a mistake." According to Dr. Wakefield, "Everyone accepts that no medical intervention is without some risk. Instead of issuing blanket assurances, public health officials should explain and quantify the risks within the context and limitations of the safety studies that have been performed. Parents understand risk. Instinctively, they weigh risk every time they send their children to an adventure playground, or consent to their participation in a contact sport."
     Dr. Russell Blaylock, a prominent neurosurgeon in the United States is one of the first to warn against the dangers of too many vaccines given simultaneously. He says, "Vaccine complications increase dramatically when given close together. To give the immune system time to settle down, vaccines should be separated by six months in children and perhaps longer in adults." He continues, "The number of vaccinations that can be given safely in a lifetime is not unlimited. Many of these vaccinations need to be abandoned."
An unlimited number of vaccines cannot be given safely,
 and the more vaccines given, the greater the risk of substantial harm.
                                                                     Dr. Russell Blaylock
     Some physicians and scientists are now starting to point to the scheduling of multiple vaccines as possibly playing an important role in many emerging illnesses yet parents and physicians are still being assured of their safety.For instance, autoimmune illnesses, chronic allergies and other conditions are rising at alarming rates. According to the CDC, asthma has increased 52% in persons between the ages of 5 and 34, and rates of death due to asthma have risen 42% in the period between 1982 and 1992.[vii] A more recent study by the CDC indicates that asthma has doubled during the last 20 years and is now the most common disorder in children and adolescents.       
The incidence of childhood asthma, diabetes, and
autoimmune diseases has doubled during the past 20 years;
 Attention Deficit Disorder has tripled, Autism has increased 600%. 
What part have vaccines played?
Stanley Monteith, M.D.
     "A critical point, which is never mentioned by those advocating mandatory vaccination of children is that children's health has declined significantly since 1960 when vaccines began to be widely used. According to the National Health Interview Survey conducted annually by theNational Center for Health Statistics since 1957, a shocking 31% of U.S.children today have a chronic health problem, 18% of children require special health care or related services and 6.7% of children have a significant disability due to a chronic physical or mental condition. Respiratory allergies, asthma and learning disabilities are the most common of these," wrote Philip Incao, M.D. He continued, "Since vaccinations have a lasting effect on the immune system, and since it is known that many vaccines shift the balance of the immune system away from its acutely-reacting "Th1" side and toward its chronically-reacting "Th2" side it is a very plausible scenario that vaccines are contributing greatly to the large-scale and unprecedented increase in chronic conditions such as allergies, asthma, diabetes and a wide range of neurological dysfunctions including learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, seizures and autism in U.S. children today." [viii]
    "A single vaccine given to a six-pound newborn is the equivalent of giving a 180 lb. adult 30 vaccinations on the same day. Include in this the toxic effects of high levels of mercury, aluminum and formaldehyde contained in some vaccines, and the synergist toxicity is increased to unknown levels. Further, it is known that infants do not produce significant levels of bile or have adult renal capacity for several months after birth. Bilary transport is the major biochemical route by which mercury is removed from the body, and infants cannot do this very well. They also do not possess the renal (kidney) capacity to remove aluminum. Additionally, mercury is a well-known inhibitor of kidney function," wrote Dr. Boyd Haley.[ix] In the articleMercury Rising, Dr. Gregory V. Stajich says, "Vaccines are the only class of medication that are given to neonates without making dosing adjustments based on their weight."[x]  This is a serious oversight and with this alone we can begin to see why we have a medical disaster in the making when doctors and medical authorities are recommending a ten-pound baby be injected with not one but up to what could now be ten vaccines at a single visit. There is not a doctor or nurse alive who would accept what a child receives adjusted up to their body weight.
In reality there are no long-term studies on the non-specific
 negative long-term effects on health of early multiple vaccinations.
    The key question, when reviewing the safety of multiple vaccinations is whether the studies used, as the foundational basis for injecting babies repeatedly on the same day, hold the necessary scientific rigor to be used with confidence. There are gapping flaws in these studies, riddled as they are with conflicts of interest, which seriously compromise the positions taken by the world's medical organizations. Dr. Wakefield reminds us, "Vaccines are a multi-billion pound business and drug companies, with their powerful political connections, are perceived by many as pursuing vaccine development in the private, and not the public interest". "During the 1990s, medical school faculty entered into other lucrative financial arrangements with drug companies, as did their parent institutions. One of the results has been a growing pro-industry bias in medical research – exactly where such bias doesn't belong," wrote Dr. Marcia Angell in her recent book The Truth about Drug Companies. Dr. Angell talks about the fantastic wealth, power and profit the pharmaceuticals wield. It is in their, and all who are connected to their interests, to favor increases in the numbers of vaccines given to children, whether safe or not. 
    According to the Washington Post, "One of every dozen U.S. children and teenagers -- 5.2 million -- has a physical or mental disability, according to new figures from the 2000 Census. The figures covered children ages 5 to 20. For people of all ages, the census counted 50 million disabled nationally, and more than 740,000 in the Washington area. Specialists say the census numbers probably understate the disability rate by not including people with mild problems."[xi]
It is not a far fetched idea that vaccines, which
 have been increasing in number, and given simultaneously
are at the heart of medical catastrophe.
    The greatest oversight of the studies used by medical authorities to assure the public of the safety of multiple vaccinations is their lack of allowance for time. None of the studies used to determine the safety of multiple injections have sufficient time frames factored into their research designs.[xii] The vast majority of published studies of vaccine reactions included a follow-up of up to only 48 hours. This conveniently excludes about 90% of reactions to vaccination. A group of vaccines administered can strongly damage a few within days, but other kids show collateral damages weeks or months afterwards. When it comes to the complicated effects of vaccines on the immune and nervous systems it takes time for the toxins in vaccines to do their damage. Yes it is true that some infants react within minutes or hours and die in their cribs or in their parent's arms. But the greater and more common effects are slow in their oncoming manifestation. Most vaccine reactions are delayed, many starting only 2-3 weeks after vaccination thus most of the studies used by the vaccine researchers to establish safety do not reflect on the realities of the long term dangers. For medical officials not to measure these effects in their research designs undermines our entire confidence and security in the childhood immunization schedule. More and more doctors are joining in worrying that the present course set by medical officials will succeed in completely destroying confidence in the public health systems.
Current vaccine programs call for repeated, multiple vaccines during infancy,
at a time when the immune system is immature and underdeveloped.
Most harm from vaccine programs is probably indirect,
not having immediate side effects, but lowering the body's
 resistance through subtle immune malfunction. 
                                                                        Dr. Harold Buttram
     The CDC says that simultaneously applied vaccines carry no great risk for adverse side effects. On this issue they present a case that does not stand up to scrutiny. Even the AMA admits that the IOM examined studies looking at multiple vaccinations and their potential to cause allergic diseases that suggested that "certain vaccines increase the risk of developing allergic disorders."[xiv] It makes medical sense to assume that the risks of each vaccine are compounded in the face of other vaccines when given simultaneously together.
Children that have received multiple vaccines are at risk for autism, attention
deficit disorder (ADD) or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
It is now estimated that at least two million children in the 
United Stateshave these disorders,
and by 1995 there were over 1.5 million children taking Ritalin as a treatment for these disorders.
Dr. Garth Nicolson & Dr. Nancy Nicolson Institute for Molecular Medicine
    The IOM says, "A review of the possible biological mechanisms for any adverse effects of multiple immunizations on immune function does not support the hypothesis that the infant immune system is inherently incapable of handling the number of vaccines presented during routine immunization scheduling."[xv] Yet, "Since the beginning of laboratory investigation of vaccines, researchers have known that immune system dysfunction can follow vaccination," says Dr. Harrold Buttram. One of the most important clues to the nature of immune malfunction following vaccines appeared in a report from Vienna entitled, Abnormal T-lymphocyte Subpopulations in Healthy Subjects after Tetanus Booster Immunizations.[xvi] The studies were conducted to determine the effects of booster vaccination with tentanus toxoid on the ratio of the helper-to-suppressor T-lymphocytes of healthy adults. Indirect immunofluroescence evaluations of T- lymphocyte from blood samples taken before and after booster vaccination revealed a temporary drop, in each subject, in the helper/suppressor ratio after vaccination. The largest drop occurred three to fourteen days post vaccination, with four of the eleven subjects demonstrating ratios of 1.0 or less. The report pointed out that similar drops in helper/suppressor ratios, to less than 1.0, are characteristic of acquired immune syndrome (AIDS).[xvii] Though little follow research has been funded in this direction, medical reason could conclude that the more vaccines given in a single day the greater the immune suppression and the greater the possibility for adverse reactions.
     And that's exactly what other studies tend to suggest. The tolerability of multiple vaccinations in travel medicine, for example, indicates that the above reasoning is correct. Dr. Borner, Muhlberger, and Jelinek at the Department of Infectious Diseases and Tropical Medicine at the University of Munich, Germany, in a study of 1,183 healthy travelers, found that in travelers with double vaccinations, side effects occurred in 36.7% of vaccinees, triple vaccinations in 40.3%, in more than three vaccinations, 50.0%.[xviii] These researchers reported that, "Results showed an increase of the overall frequency of side effects with an increasing number of simultaneously applied vaccines." It seems the CDC has a short memory for in the early eighties they themselves checked over 700 Peace Corps volunteers who had received the human diploid cell rabies vaccine (HDCV) and found that one-half responded in an immunologically weak way to the vaccine. According to Dr. Buttram, the CDC postulated that a weakened immune system response to HDCV (and thus death to one unfortunate Peace Corps volunteer after rabies exposure) resulted from immunological "interference with a host response by multiple immunizations."[xix] 
They are giving more and more vaccinations to children
in one session, but they seem to be saying there is no
evidence that this will overwhelm a child's immune system.
There is no evidence because they have not looked for it.[xx]
                                                                               Dr. Andrew Wakefield
     Dr. Russell Blaylock states, "The timing of the vaccinations determines the clinical picture. Multiple vaccinations are being given to children at one office visit-as many as 9 at a time. This combined antigen-adjuvant overload produces intense brain microglial activation."[xxi] The time of life that children are hit with multiple numbers of vaccines is critical. The present vaccine schedule in many countries starts at birth and continues at regular intervals through the first and second years of life with increasing numbers of shots administered on the same days because of the increasing number of vaccines added to the basic childhood immunization schedule. "It should be obvious that this period of early infancy is one of extreme susceptibility, with effects far greater than would result in later life when various organ systems are more developed and stabilized," wrote Dr. Buttram
Receiving multiple vaccines in a short period of time can cause
 immune suppression, and such individuals may be at much higher risk
 for opportunistic infections than a similar un-immunized population.

     A doctor or health official would be lying if they said that the typical array of vaccines given together does not collectively consist of many toxic compounds. For instance if we added the basic chemicals used in a common list of vaccines given together we have a list of the following compounds:
Each dose (0.5 mL) contains 0.625 mg aluminum; 25 Diphtheria toxoid; 10 tetanus toxoid; 25 m g pertussis toxin; 25 m g filamentous hemagglutinin; 8 m g pertacin; 2.5 mg
2-phenoxyethanol; 4.5 mg sodium chloride; and 0.1 mg formaldehyde.
Hepatitis B
Each dose (0.5 mL) contains 0.25 mg aluminum; 10 m g of hepatitis B antigen; 4.5 mg sodium chloride; 0.49 mg disodium phosphate dihydrate; and 0.35 mg sodium dihydrogen phosphate dihydrate.
Influenzae (Hib)
Each dose (0.5 mL of 0.4% sodium chloride solution) contains 10 m g of purified Haemophilus capsular polysaccharide.
Polio Vaccine
Each 0.5 mL dose contains 40 D antigen units of type 1, 8 D antigen units of type 2, and 32 D antigen units of type 3 poliovirus. Also present are 0.5% of 2-phenoxyethanol and 0.02% of formaldehyde (Preservatives), 5 mg neomycin, 200 mg streptomycin, and 25 mg polymyxin.
Each dose (0.5 mL of vaccine) contains a mixture of purified polysaccharides of 23most prevalent or invasive pneumococcal types of Streptococcus pneumonia dissolved in isotonic saline solution containing 0.25% phenol as preservative.

Until recently in the United States, and still in many parts of the world, several of these vaccines contained strong doses of thimerosal, a highly toxic mercury preservative, besides the above list of other toxic and potentially damaging chemical substances. The presence of thimerosal, even with only trace amounts present, threatens the safety of vaccines. The damaging effects of the mercury in thimerosal (proven by itself to destroy neurons) increases dramatically its effects when mixed with other chemicals especially aluminum. [xxiii]
     Conveniently the CDC, AMA, and IOM information bulletins about the safety of multiple vaccine shots do not mention this list. There are no specific studies that measure the long-term effects of such a chemical cocktail. The nature of individual toxins usually covers a wide spectrum of collateral damages but when mixed together it's anyone's guess to what the ill effects will be. Since there are no long-term studies we must look to the open population and ascertain what is actually happening to the children subjected to vaccines given simultaneously. What we run into is autism, which has grown in leaps and bounds as the basic vaccine schedule has expanded. Also we see deterioration in the general health of children as mentioned above, measured, by the increasing incidents of childhood cancer, asthma and diabetes.
     "Few published studies on vaccine effects include before-and-after studies of immune parameters or brain function studies such as electroencephalograms, or long-term safety monitoring. Inadequate consideration has been given to the additive or synergistic adverse effects of multiple simultaneous vaccines, although in the case of toxic chemicals, two compounds together may be 10 times more toxic than either separately, or 3 compounds 100 times more toxic," says Dr. Buttram.[xxiv] What is most obviously dangerous about multiple vaccines is the clear and immanent danger of mercury, in the form of thimerosal, which when given in higher and higher doses because of multiple shots, clearly passes federal safety guidelines for safety. The higher the amount administered the more overloaded the body becomes because of its limited ability to eliminate mercury. Medical authorities have never factored into their safety studies the most recent revelations that indicate that children vary greatly in their capacity to eliminate mercury from the body because of genetic dispositions.
     Many "vaccine adjuvants contain surface-active agents, but the immunological roles played by these components have been essentially ignored," reports Dr. Y.W. Yang who did studies that demonstrated that vaccine adjuvants have apoptotic and necrotic effects.[xxv] Dr. Russell Blaylock confirms this saying, "Several things can activate microglia, including pesticides, MSG, viruses, mycroplasma, bacteria, stress, aluminum, mercury, and immune adjuvants."[xxvi] "In the case of multiple vaccinations over a short period of time, something worse happens: the adjuvants activate the nervous system's special immune cells, the microglia. Microlglia cells are dispersed throughout the nervous system. Normally, they lie dormant. When activated, they can migrate throughout the brain, secreting very powerful toxins, free radicals and immune related chemicals (cytokines)" continues Blaylock.  
  Dr. Neal Halsey of the Institute for Vaccine Safety says, "The risks of serious consequences following vaccines are many hundreds or thousands of times less likely than the risks associated with the diseases that the vaccines protect against."[xxvii] Dr. Philip Incao says something different. "The present growing distrust of vaccinations by concerned parents nationwide is a grassroots movement that will not go away, because it springs from a very real source: from a frequency of acute and chronic adverse effects of vaccinations far greater than is being officially acknowledged."[xxviii]
     Every year, between 12,000 and 14,000 reports of adverse vaccine reactions are filed with the FDA. These include hospitalizations, permanent brain damage, and death. The FDA estimates that this figure may represent just 10 percent of the true damage being done.[xxix]
Reported to VAERS from 1999-2002[xxx]
Adverse Reactions Reported Age 0-6
reported age 0-6
Deaths reported
age 0-6
     As of the end of 2002, the VAERS system contained 244,424 total reports of possible reactions to vaccines, including 99,145 emergency room visits, 5,149 life-threatening reactions, 27,925 hospitalizations, 5,775 disabilities, and 5,309 deaths[xxxi]according to data compiled by Dr. Mark Geier, a vaccine researcher in Silver SpringMd. The data represents roughly 1 billion doses of vaccines, according to Geier. Dr. J. Anthony Morris, former Chief Vaccine Control Officer at the US Federal Drug Administration agrees that such evidence has great bearing on the entire vaccination question saying, "There is a great deal of evidence to prove that immunization of children does more harm than good".[xxxii]
     According to Dr. David Kessler, former head of the Food and Drug Administration, "Only about 10 percent of serious events [adverse drug reactions] are reported to the FDA."[xxxiii] If we this as a rule of thumb the above table's numbers would look more like this.
Reported to VAERS from 1999-2002 Multiplied By Ten
Adverse Reactions Reported Age 0-6
reported age 0-6
Deaths reported
age 0-6
    The official statistics do not touch upon the tragedy of infants found dead in their cribs, or other babies thought to be shaken to death by their parents – outcomes that sometimes were later attributed to adverse vaccine reactions. These estimates also do not reflect the abominable situation in third world countries, where immunization is forced on sick and malnourished children who already have compromised immune systems. People with normal healthy immune systems are less prone to complications and reactions from vaccines. It used to be, according to Dr. Russell Baylock, "accepted by most authorities that vaccines should not be given to individuals with impaired immunity for fear of triggering immune attacks on the central nervous system such as encephalitis, nerve injuries (peripheral neuropathy), multiple sclerosis and allergic encephalomyelitis."[xxxiv] But in practice we know this is hardly the case anymore and in many clinics around the world when a child is brought in, they are bombarded with the full spread of vaccines available no matter what the condition is of their immune system.
     Dr. Paul Offit states that, "The young infant is fully capable of generating protective humoral and cellular immune responses to multiple vaccines simultaneously."[xxxv] Dr. Wakefield reported recently that a Dr Salisbury in England stated on television, "Without any medical or scientific basis in fact, that children could safely be given 1,000 vaccines at once. Dr Salisbury's transparent confusion of fact with personal opinion reflects a failure to grasp that for adverse reactions with combination vaccines, the risk of the whole is likely to be greater than the sum of the parts. This is particularly the case with live viral vaccines where interference between viruses has the potential to alter risk profoundly."[xxxvi]Dr. Buttram reminds us, "Any suppression of the helper T-lymphocytes during this time, even of a transient nature, would certainly be undesirable. What is known is that an AIDS-like reduced T-lymphocyte ratio has been described in young children and may be the cause of transient hypogammagolbulinemia of infancy.[xxxvii] As yet unresolved is the role of vaccines given in infancy in producing this immunological disorder."[xxxviii]
      "There is plenty of evidence to suggest that over stimulation of the systemic immune system as by repeated inoculations spaced close together, can result in chronic activation of brain microglia, the nervous system's immune mechanism. Gulf War veterans were exposed to as many as 17 inoculations over a very short period of time. Such over stimulation of the systemic immunity, either in children receiving a multitude of inoculations to their immune system, or adults in the military who are subjected toaggressive short term inoculation programs speeded up as troops prepare for war, can produce deleterious effects on the nervous system function, including neurodegeneration," states Dr. Blaylock.  After the Persian Gulf War, more than 150,000 veterans came down with Gulf War illnesses (GWI), chronic fatiguing illnesses similar to CFS or myalgic encephomyelitis. Dr. William F. Baumzweiger said, "A combination of exposures to biohazards in the Gulf and multiple vaccinations were among the core causes," of Gulf War Syndrome (GWS).
     Speaking of the common grounds between autism and GWS Dr. Blaylock says, "Both syndromes manifest an impaired peripheral immune system, a possible consequence of excessive vaccination itself, neurotoxic vaccine additives (aluminum and mercury), and immune-suppressive viruses such as the measles virus. This should serve as a caution to those who would add even more vaccines to a schedule already too crowded, as well as an indication to reassess the current schedule."[xxxix]
The most likely sources for the immune disturbances and chronic
 bacterial infections found in GWI patients are the multiple
 vaccines that were used in a short period during deployment.
                                                                       Dr. Garth Nicolson
     Medically the truth is that vaccines are administered simultaneously for convenience not safety, because medical policymakers realize that the number of visits to a healthcare provider (for vaccines) is an impediment to receiving all the recommended shots. The CDC talks about, "two practical factors in favor of giving a child several vaccinations during the same visit. First, we want to immunize children as early as possible to give them protection during the vulnerable early months of their lives. This generally means giving inactivated vaccines beginning at 2 months and live vaccines at 12 months. The various vaccine doses thus tend to fall due at the same time. Second, giving several vaccinations at the same time will mean fewer office visits for vaccinations, which saves parents both time and money and may be less traumatic for the child."
"Our beautiful daughter was born in February and died in April.
 What was unusual was that on the day that she died, I had taken her
 to the military base hospital for her two-month checkup.
 The doctor told me that she was just perfect.
Then the doctor said that she needed four shots.
 I replied Four! She assured me that it was completely normal
 and that it was better to give her all at such an early age.
 That evening after feeding her, we laid her down to sleep
 and checked on her 45 minutes later. She was dead.
After three weeks we finally got an answer from the autopsy
 that it was indeed SIDS. To this day I believe that it was the shots
 and no one can convince me otherwise."
     The nation and the world are faced with a crisis in medicine that is perilously close to an emergency. The childhood immunization program, due to the vast increase in injections (containing mercury and other toxic agents) simultaneously given is threatening to be a fiasco for medical science. It is an unfolding catastrophe without any comparison. The growing chorus of criticism here and around the world from scientists and doctors is laying bare the dangers of a system of recommended injections that statistically are proving to be directly involved with a sharp increase in autism and other related learning disorders, as well as sharp increases in asthma and diabetes in the young.
     The IOM, CDC, AMA, AAP, WHO, UNICEF and the FDA are proving to be incompetent and untrustworthy in the areas of immunization, and have endangered the health of the nation and the world. In a disaster of medical ideology over reality, medical officials, true believers in pharmaceutically based medicine, show that they know everything better than everybody else, and the arrogance born of that certainty has led, step by tragic step, to the present situation where infants are bombarded with toxic chemicals injected one after another in a brutal attack on their young immune systems. This medical arrogance has locked the entire medical establishment around the world into a pre-emptive war on the health of children while slapping contempt on any physician or scientist that is courageous enough to stand in their way.
My daughter  received three vaccines on one day, the DTP, IPV and Hib.
That night she was very finicky and cried all night.
The next night I put my baby down to sleep but all she would do was cry.
Finally she and I fell asleep from exhaustion.
 I woke up in the middle of the night and grabbed my baby
and my heart cried out for she was all blue.
 She had died in her sleep.
 She was rushed to the hospital in a matter of minutes though
 and they worked on her for a while but there was
 nothing they could do. My angel was gone.

"In reality medicine has come up with many disease categories, diagnostic labels that simply hide the truth. Autism is actually a deflection, a way of denying the very simple truth that most of these children have been poisoned by the use of mercury in medicine and dental products, as well as by a long list of toxins flooding the environment. Yes there are complicating factors that need to be discussed in depth, but as the latest information fromCalifornia shows, as mercury levels in vaccines are being reduced there, new reports of autism are declining."

[xxix] A great factor to consider also in counting iatrogenic deaths is the fact that many iatrogenic death and disease go unreported. The FDA and theAmerican College of Physicians and Surgeons believe the majority of adverse drug or surgical events never get reported because doctors are afraid they will get sued if they report an error. The general rule of thumb presently used though is between 10% to 20% percent of serious events getting reported but some people think even less.
[xxx] The U.S. Government's VAERS Database - Since 1990, the U.S. Government has collected many thousands of reports of vaccine damage. This database, called theVaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is available for anyone to download. It can be examined more easily at: http://www.medalerts.org/vaersdb/
[xxxi] The most denied fact in medicine is that sometimes vaccinations are lethal injections that do kill infants. In the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) there were 1,080 total reports of adverse reactions from hepatitis B vaccine in 1996 in the 0 to 1 age group, with 47 deaths reported. "Since July 1990, 17,497 cases of hospitalizations, injuries and deaths in America following hepatitis B vaccination have been reported to VAERS. This figure includes 146 deathsin individuals after receiving only hepatitis B vaccine without any other vaccines, including 73 deaths in children under 14 years old.   In 1996 there were 872 serious adverse events in children less than 14 years old. In all, there were 38,600 reports to VAERS concerning adverse events and 753 reports of death, occurring at all ages, shortly after the administration of Hepatitis B vaccine. The complications in 745 survivors were considered life threatening. There were 14,476 Emergency Room visits, and 3,115 patients were hospitalized. 914 patients became disabled and 224 developed jaundice for this vaccine. In 64% of the deaths under 1, the cause of death was listed as SIDS. Dr. Harris L. Coulter, said of this, "Crib death" was so infrequent in the pre-vaccination era that it was not even mentioned in the statistics, but it started to climb in the 1950s with the spread of mass vaccination against diseases of childhood."
[xxxii] Morris, Anthony. "There is no evidence that any influenza vaccine thus far developed is effective in preventing or mitigating any attack of influenza. The producers of these vaccines know that they are worthless, but they go on selling them anyway." http://www.vaclib.org/basic/quotes.htm
[xxxiii] Remarks by David Kessler, M.D. Medwatch Health Professionals Meeting May 4, 1993 "Yet even though reports from health professionals are critical to protecting the public health, the unfortunate fact is that most practitioners do not think to report adverse events or product problems that might be associated with medications, devices or other products regulated by the FDA.  One survey found that barely half of physicians were even aware that FDA had a reporting program.  And according to one study, only one percent of serious events are reported to the Agency.  Meanwhile, up to 11 percent of hospital admissions may be due to drug reactions, one review article concluded."
