Susanne Posel (OC) : Journalists have come out to voice their opinion on what is being called the “anti-vaccine movement” which is being blamed for causing a “public health crisis”.
Crystal Shepard wrote :“There are several parts of the world where vaccine preventable illness and death have always existed. These occur largely in third world countries where access is limited and living conditions which disease can spread quickly. “However, in developed nations, the overwhelming majority of the resurgence of these diseases can be linked to one group of people: parents who refuse to vaccinate their children.”
Another journalist complained that celebrities such as Jenny McCarthy and Kristin Cavallari have come forward to explain that the dangers of autism associated with the mercury-based preservative Thimerosal was enough for them to choose not to vaccinate.
A couple of extracts:
One damning piece of evidence ignored by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regarding the dangers of developing autism as directly correlated with Thimerosal was conducted in the mid-90’s and suppressed ever since.
The research paper documented that there were significant biological changes and altered behaviors that occurred in the vaccinated monkeys that were identical to children diagnosed with ASD (autism).
Dr. Bernadine Healy , who has read this study by Hewitson but did not participate in the research, made these remarks concerning the findings: “I think public health officials have been too quick to dismiss the hypothesis as ‘irrational,’ without sufficient studies of causation…without studying the population that got sick . . . I have not seen major studies that focus on 300 kids who got autistic symptoms within a period of a few weeks of the vaccines.”
