a direct result of
vaccination, the mucosal immunity remains weak, complications of
which may be the rapid increase in ear infections in children. Otitis Media
or "glue ear," is a buildup of water in the ear, often requiring the
installation of little tubes for drainage. Children can suffer with
chronic earaches and or mild loss of hearing from this infection. This
particular "glue ear" type of
was not known in American medical
practice before the late 1940's or early 1950's. At least half of all
children have had Otitis Media by their first birthday. This condition
accounts for twenty six million visits to physicians every year. In
addition, about one million children have tubes inserted in their ears every
year, at a cost of one thousand dollars per operation. That amounts to one
billion spent each year on this operation. There is no system of the human
being, from mind to muscles to immune system, which gets stronger through
avoiding challenges, but only through overcoming challenges.
These vaccinations are a
disaster on the immune system as well as your wallet. The length of
protection conferred by vaccines is variable, often requiring numerous
booster doses. No vaccine has been demonstrated to confer serologic immunity
for more than 10 years (Plotkin & Mortimer, 1994).
I wanted to understand herd immunity so I went to the CDC. Here is what they
had to say:
Community immunity or "herd immunity" is an important part of protecting the
community against disease. Because vaccinated people have antibodies that
neutralize a germ, they are much less likely to transmit that germ to other
people. Thus, even people who have not been vaccinated (and those whose
vaccinations have become weakened or whose vaccines aren't fully effective)
often can be shielded by the herd immunity because vaccinated people around
them are not getting sick. Herd immunity is more effective as the percentage
of people vaccinated increases. It is thought that approximately 95% of the
people in the community must be protected by a vaccine to achieve herd
immunity. People who are not immunized increase the chance that they and
others will get the disease.
For some diseases, however, herd immunity offers no protection. For example,
tetanus is not contagious. It is contracted when a wound comes in contact
with soil contaminated with the tetanus bacterium. It is important to keep
in mind that a few people may not be protected from the disease even though
they have been vaccinated. About 1 or 2 of every 20 people immunized will
not have an adequate immune response to a vaccine. But if 95% of the
population is immunized, then the unprotected people are not as likely to be
exposed to the germ at all, so they have a smaller chance of becoming
The next question I had was, is the US population vaccinated to at least
95%? If not it would stand to reason using the CDC's logic that disease
would be rampant. Here is an article that was send to me by my friend Alan:
78%? I live in Florida! Disease is not rampant! I checked the CDC's
website and looked up the other states.

This is a quote from AOL's WEBmd, "Leatherman pointed to one
federally funded study in 2002 showing that only 11 states met CDC goals
of extending basic immunizations to 80% (not 95%) of children.
Rates ran as low as 65% in Colorado."
I must question the theory of herd immunity.
Thoughts on Vaccination
my sonís seizures I was more concerned about a computer virus than any virus
I had injected into my children. I began this paper from anger I felt
towards myself for not researching before I allowed my babies to be
vaccinated. I feel ridiculous when I remember my concern of putting the car
seat in correctly, even going so far as to take a two-hour class in it at
nine months pregnant! Why didnít I research as diligently the need for all
these vaccines? What started as consolation to my own guilt has developed
into a passion for finding and sharing the truth. If one mother saves her
child from the damage caused from an unnecessary vaccination, then I have
served my purpose. Since I know that all things work together for good, then
this has been brought into my life for a positive result. Helping others
discover that they have a choice, and that choice should be an informed one,
then again, I have served my purpose. The doctrine surrounding immunization
far outweighs the evidence.
As a parent, before you
allow a virus (plus other chemicals) directly into your childís bloodstream
(I am not referring to I.V. delivery of vaccines. These chemicals make their
way to your child's bloodstream from being injected) it is your
responsibility to demand convincing evidence beyond a reasonable doubt of
its safety and
effectiveness. One flaw in study
of vaccines is that there are no true placebo groups. The vaccine is tested
in one group of immunized children and is compared to another group of
Whatever disease it may be cultured from, all vaccines contain the putrid
byproducts of disease.
