Beware, there may be bacterial feces in processed milk

By LUIS MIRANDA | THE REAL AGENDA | FEBRUARY 26, 2013

In this case, it is not human excrement, human tissue or horse DNA, but artificial sweeteners.

Back in 2009, the International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) and the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) have filed a petition requesting that the Food and Drug Administration of the United States changed the way in which processed milk ingredients are identified, so that they could include “safe” and “suitable” additives.

As many remember, the FDA, among other government organizations waged war against raw milk and those who consume, sell or gift people with raw milk. The FDA and armed police raided dozens of milk farms, stopped and detained cars or trucks that carried milk within states and to consumers in other states. After confiscation, the armed men proceeded to throw out all milk and other milk-derived products such as cheese and yogurt.

While the FDA criminally persecuted producers and consumers of raw milk and other natural products, the dairy industry requested the amendment of the way ingredients appear on milk labels to reflect details different from the real names and descriptions or to not appear at all. On its website, the Federal Register explains that “the petition requests that FDA amend § 131.110(c)(2) to allow the use of “any safe and suitable” sweetener in optional characterizing flavoring ingredients used in milk.” A lot of attention must be given to the words “suitable” and “optional characterizing flavoring ingredients”, which are the ones the dairy lobby intends to have unregulated.

Along with deregulating the standards for sweeteners in milk, the petition also asks for the amendment of standards for another 17 dairy  products. According to the Registry, the petition would include “additional dairy standards” for acidified milk (§ 131.111), cultured milk (§ 131.112), sweetened condensed milk (§ 131.120), non-fat dry milk (§ 131.125), non-fat dry milk fortified with vitamins A and D (§ 131.127), evaporated milk (§ 131.130), dry cream (§ 131.149), heavy cream (§ 131.150), light cream (§ 131.155), light whipping cream (§ 131.157), sour cream (§ 131.160), acidified sour cream (§ 131.162), eggnog (§ 131.170), half-and-half (§ 131.180), yogurt (§ 131.200), low-fat yogurt (§ 131.203), and non-fat yogurt (§ 131.206).

Although at the beginning of its request the dairy lobby talks about “safe” ingredients, the truth that after reading the fine print, it becomes clear that there will be more than a few substances they want to include that would not fall under the “safe” label. In the text posted by the Registry, the organization explains that the dairy lobby is asking for amendments on the optional characterizing flavoring ingredients used in milk which enable them to use “non-nutritive sweeteners” such as aspartame.

As most readers are aware, Aspartame is nothing less than bacterial excrement which is included into artificial sweeteners. The substance was accepted as a food additive after former U.S. Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld lobbied on behalf of the chemical industry to get the ingredient approved for human consumption.

As it has been widely explained, Aspartame is responsible for serious damage to the brain. The substance is proven to cause brain lesions by leaving traces of Methanol in the blood. Aspartame manufacturers usually lure consumers with their low calorie products which they sweeten with an ingredient which is some 200 times sweeter than regular sugar. How does Aspartame achieve this level of bitter sweetness? It is made of 3 different substances: aspartic acid, phenylalanine and a methyl ester bond or Methanol. As explained before, the Methanol manages to travel through the body via the blood stream.

The Methanol has the capacity to break the blood-brain barrier and once it turns into formaldehyde, it causes brain damage in humans and animals. Fortunately for animals, they do have the ability to get rid of the formaldehyde before it accumulates, but humans lack that ability. Another government entity, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), has determined that Methanol destroys a tissue called myelin tissue, which normally protects the nerves while they emit and receive electric signals.

What does the excessive intake of Methanol do to the humans body? In layman’s terms, it destroy neurons in various regions of the brain, causing the death of most neural cells, which are killed before the consumer feels any symptoms or detects signs of  illness.

Why is Aspartame still being used in food and drinks? Why is the FDA even considering a request from the dairy lobby to allow them to put this neuro-chemical in the food? Because as in many other examples of how big corporations control government agencies, the IDFA and NMPF argue that the amendments to the standards will promote healthful eating practices while reducing childhood obesity “by providing for lower-calorie flavored milk products.”

Both lobbying organizations say that lower-calorie flavored milk would benefit school children because they are more likely to drink flavored milk than unflavored milk at school. Right now, food products such as milk and milk-derived products can contain only nutritious sweetening agents. Non-nutritious or unsafe elements can also be added as long as they are properly included in the product’s description. What the processed milk lobby intends to do is, among other things, remove the requirement to include those dangerous substances on the food product, so that people don’t become aware of the toxic chemicals they are ingesting.

Just yesterday, The Real Agenda published an extensive report on how the World Health Organization admits that humans, animals and the environment are being exposed to thousands of chemical poisons used to manufacture food products. Most of those products contain substances such as Aspartame, which are responsible for the highest incidence in endocrine disease. Among the diseases created by chemicals in the food are Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, obesity, diabetes, and affections of the neurological system.

As pointed out in our report, the case of Aspartame is similar to that of DDT, Genetically Modified Organisms, nicotine, PCBs, fluoride and other industrially produced chemicals which are now part of almost everything people consume. At first, they were deemed as safe for everyone and everything, only to be identified as heavily toxic decades later.

Vaccine injuries in Africa being covered-up

By CHRISTINA ENGLAND | VACTRUTH | FEBRUARY 14, 2013

Millions of children across Africa have been included in meningitis vaccine trials, many without parental consent. VacTruth recently revealed this information, resulting in many agencies desperately trying to cover up this travesty and the sacking of two leading heads of state.

Shortly after VacTruth published the first of three articles covering the MenAfriVac vaccine tragedy in which dozens of children were paralyzed, in Gouro, Chad, in northern Africa, the prime minister of Chad, Emmanuel Nadingar, was relieved of his duties and replaced by the former chief of cabinet, Djimrangar Dadnadji. According to an excellent article by the human rights organization Ecoterra International, this abrupt change in leadership was ordered by Chad’s president Idris Déby, a patron of the anti-meningitis campaign. [1]

BIG NAMES, BIG MISTAKE

On January 13, 2013, VacTruth published the second of the three articles. By this time, Chadian authorities had reported that a total of 38 children who were suffering from adverse reactions to the vaccine had been evacuated to hospitals in N’Djamena, Chad’s capital. [2]

A few weeks later, VacTruth was informed that the health minister of Chad, Mamouth Nahor N’Gawara, had also been relieved of his duties and replaced by Dr. Mahamat Ahmat Djidda. [3]

So, why the sudden changes in leadership? It may have had something to do with the fact that VacTruth had reported the conflicting views from involved organizations on whether or not the MenAfriVac vaccine could be used outside of the usual controlled temperature chain (CTC) of 2 – 8 °C.

The organizations involved with the promotion of the vaccine had stated that MenAfriVac was a vaccine specifically designed to meet the needs of Africa’s meningitis belt, which stretches across sub-Saharan Africa. These organizations stated that the vaccine could be kept in a controlled temperature chain (CTC) at temperatures of up to 40°C for up to four days without the need for ice packs or refrigeration.

The organizations involved in the promotion of this information were the CDC, FDA, BMGF, PATH, MVP, WHO and UNICEF. (For meanings of these acronyms, please refer to key at the end of this article.)

YOU WON’T BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED NEXT

Of course this information would have been fantastic news for Africa, except for one vital point: at the time we published our articles, Serum Institute of India, the manufacturer of the vaccine, was promoting conflicting information. They had stated on their website:

“MenAfriVac should be stored and transported between 2-8ºC. Protect from light. The diluent should be stored at 25°C. It is recommended to protect the reconstituted vaccine from direct sunlight. Do not exceed the expiry date stated on the external packaging.

Here is a snapshot of the original page.

An archived snapshot of the vaccine manufacturer’s website show they changed information about the storage of the vaccine shortly after the children became paralyzed.

However, when this information was checked for verification last week, the recommendations for vaccine storage had mysteriously changed to the following statements:

“MenAfriVac should be stored and transported between 2-8ºC. Protect from light. The diluent should be stored at 25°C. It is recommended to protect the reconstituted vaccine from direct sunlight. Do not exceed the expiry date stated on the external packaging. Immediately prior to reconstitution the vaccine is stable and can be used when exposed up to 40ºC for period of 4 days provided the vaccine has not reached its expiry date and the vaccine vial monitor has not reached the discard point.” [4]

Why was this information suddenly changed, after the vaccine had already been stored and administered according to the previous guidelines? Was it because we reported that dozens of children were paralyzed and suffering other adverse reactions after receiving MenAfriVac? Was it because we reported that this vaccine was administered to third-world children before it was licensed?

In October 2012, WHO had stated:

“The session began with an introduction by Mr. Michel Zaffran, who highlighted the groundbreaking progress made with MenAfriVac®, which will be the first EPI vaccine licensed for use in a controlled temperature chain (CTC).

… This is the final review of the document by IPAC prior to the planned field testing during the MenAfriVac® campaign in Benin in November 2012, where one district will use the vaccine in a CTC. After the field testing has been conducted, the revised final guidance document will come back to IPAC for endorsement in 2013.” [5]

The reasons why the manufacturer suddenly changed their recommendations for storage and transport remain a mystery. However, this new controversy still does not take away the fact that MenAfriVac was not licensed to travel in a CTC of temperatures of up to 40°C at the time the children of Gouro were vaccinated.

THIS DOESN’T MAKE SENSE!

What exactly is a controlled temperature chain? If these vaccines do not need refrigeration or ice packs for up to four days, how does the word “controlled” come into the process? Surely, without ice packs or refrigeration, there is no controlled temperature chain.

MenAfriVac is an inactivated vaccine (a vaccine which does not use a live virus). Previously, according to the CDC guidelines for vaccine temperature and storage, inactivated vaccines needed refrigerator storage at temperatures between 35°F and 46°F (2°C to 8°C), with a desired average temperature of 40°F (5°C). (Note, that is 40°F not 40°C.) [6]

So, what makes the MenAfriVac vaccine so different from other vaccines, that it does not require refrigeration for up to four days?

Another important point to consider is the fact that temperatures across Africa can exceed 40°C. According to the website Weather Spark, the average weather for N’Djamena, Chad varies between 15°C and 41°C. Their temperatures are rarely below 12°C or above 44°C. This means that outdoor temperatures can reach 44°C in a typical year. [7] In fact, in June 2010, temperatures in Chad reached an all-time high of 47.6°C. [8]

MORE UNANSWERED QUESTIONS

This information leads me to ask the following questions:

If the outdoor temperatures can reach 44°C in a typical year and the MenAfriVac vaccine is traveling inside a vehicle which may not have air-conditioning, in a container without ice packs or refrigeration, then how do the vaccinators know the true temperature the vaccine has reached at any given time?

If the truck carrying the vaccines is traveling across Africa at the time that the outdoor temperatures rise above 40°C, does the team return to base and scrap that particular batch of vaccines?

Can both the vaccine and the diluents be kept at the same temperature?

I ask the third question because it is usual for the vaccine and the diluents to be kept at different temperatures in accordance with recommendations from the manufacturer and the CDC.

ANOTHER SUSPICIOUS TRIAL

Another interesting point to consider is this: at the time the MenAfriVac vaccine was being administered to the children in Gouro, it was being tested to see whether or not it was safe to be administered to children in temperatures of up to 40°C. Therefore, it is odd that the vaccinators chose to vaccinate the children at the time of year when temperatures are usually below 30°C.

The children of Gouro were not the only children being used in clinical trials for the MenAfriVac vaccine. Babies between the ages of 14 –18 weeks were also being used for clinical trials in Ghana.

According to the Meningitis Vaccine Project (MVP), a MenAfriVac phase 2 clinical trial was carried out in Ghana, testing the vaccine for use in the under-one age group. The trial was carried out over a four-year period from November 2008 to November 2012 at the Navrongo Health Research Center, Navrongo, Ghana. A total of 1,200 infants took part in the trial, aged between 14 to 18 weeks on enrollment. MVP stated:

“Study results: Preliminary results show that the vaccine is safe and highly immunogenic. Final results will be presented in a forthcoming scientific publication.” [9]

The MVP News Digest reported the following:

“Research to document an indication for MenAfriVac™ use in infancy (in under 1-year-olds) is progressing well and according to schedule. A database lock for PsA-TT-004 was completed on December 21. PsA-TT-004 is a Phase 2 study that evaluates the safety and immunogenicity of different dosages and schedules of the MenA conjugate vaccine in 1,200 healthy infants when administered concomitantly with EPI vaccines. The study is conducted at the Navrongo Health Research Centre in Ghana and is scheduled for completion in early 2013.” [10]

On February 4, 2013, Spy News Ghana stated that the research findings show that MenAfriVac is safe and can be given to children under one year old, providing long-term protection from Group-A meningococcal meningitis in this age group. [11]

CONCLUSION

Today, the latest news from Gouro is that 40 children remain paralyzed in hospitals in both Chad and Tunisia, and a further 56 remain ill in the village of Gouro. However, news from Ecoterra International on February 9, 2013, said that the new heath minister wants to send them back home to their ill-equipped village. [12]

Until our intervention, there had been no publicity about the serious vaccine injuries in Chad. However, since our articles were published, there has been a flurry of worldwide media attention, including an extremely biased report in the Guardian UK telling the world that MenAfriVac is a wonderful vaccine. Mind you, to be fair, as you will see from the article, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, a well-known supporter of vaccination initiatives, funded this section of the Guardian. [13]

The whole debacle is one coverup after another. The Chadian government has not asked any independent experts to evaluate the safety and efficacy of the MenAfriVac campaign, stirring up anger among the citizens of Chad. They have been left to cope with extremely sick children, many of whom are still reported to be paralyzed and suffering from severe convulsions. The children need appropriate medical care and their parents deserve answers.

Genetically Modified Vaccines with reprogrammed insect virus are here!

NATURALNEWS | FEBRUARY 8, 2013

A new vaccine for influenza has hit the market, and it is the first ever to contain genetically-modified (GM) proteins derived from insect cells. According to reports, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved the vaccine, known as Flublok, which contains recombinant DNA technology and an insect virus known as baculovirus that is purported to help facilitate the more rapid production of vaccines.

According to Flublok’s package insert, the vaccine is trivalent, which means it contains GM proteins from three different flu strains. The vaccine’s manufacturer, Protein Sciences Corporation (PSC), explains that Flublok is produced by extracting cells from the fall armyworm, a type of caterpillar, and genetically altering them to produce large amounts of hemagglutinin, a flu virus protein that enables the flu virus itself to enter the body quickly.

So rather than have to produce vaccines the “traditional” way using egg cultures, vaccine manufacturers will now have the ability to rapidly produce large batches of flu virus protein using GMOs, which is sure to increase profits for the vaccine industry. But it is also sure to lead to all sorts of serious side effects, including the deadly nerve disease Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GSB), which is listed on the shot as a potential side effect.

“If Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) has occurred within six weeks of receipt of a prior influenza vaccine, the decision to give Flublock should be based on careful consideration of the potential benefits and risks,” explains a section of the vaccine’s literature entitled “Warnings and Precautions.” Other potential side effects include allergic reactions, respiratory infections, headaches, fatigue, altered immunocompetence, rhinorrhea, and myalgia.

According to clinical data provided by PSC in Flublok’s package insert, two study participants actually died during trials of the vaccine. But the company still insists Flublok is safe and effective, and that it is about 45 percent effective against all strains of influenza in circulation, rather than just one or two strains.

FDA also approves flu vaccine containing dog kidney cells

Back in November, the FDA also approved a new flu vaccine known as Flucelvax that is actually made using dog kidney cells. A product of pharmaceutical giant Novartis, Flucelvax also does away with the egg cultures, and can similarly be produced much more rapidly than traditional flu vaccines, which means vaccine companies can have it ready and waiting should the federal government declare a pandemic.

Like Flublok, Flucelvax was made possible because of a $1 billion, taxpayer-funded grant given by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to the vaccine industry back in 2006 to develop new manufacturing methods for vaccines. The ultimate goal is to be able to quickly manufacture hundreds of millions of vaccines for rapid distribution.

Meanwhile, there are reportedly two other GMO flu vaccines currently under development. One of them, which is being produced by Novavax, will utilize “bits of genetic material grown in caterpillar cells called ‘virus-like particles’ that mimic a flu virus,” according to Reuters.

U.S. FDA calling for Genetically Modified Salmon to be released into the Environment

By ANTHONY GUCCIARDI | NATURAL SOCIETY | DECEMBER 27, 2012

While you were likely resting or enjoying time with friends and family over the Christmas break, the United States Food and Drug Administration was hard at work ramming through genetically modified salmon towards the final acceptance process. Despite the frankenfish actually being blocked by Congress last year over serious health and environmental concerns, the FDA is making a massive push to release the genetically modified salmon into the world as the FDA-backed biotech giant and creator of the fish AquaAdvantage screams for profits.

These fish of course threaten the very genetic integrity of the food chain when considering the fact that they will ultimately be unleashed into waters with other salmon and likely even the ocean at large. The AquaAdvantage genetically modified salmon have been engineered through genetic manipulation to grow double the size and weight of the average salmon. Hitting 24 inches instead of 13 and weighing in at 6.6 pounds instead of 2.8, the GM fish contains both a gene from another salmon known as the  Pacific Chinook as well as an eel-like fish.

This unnatural genetic infusion allows the fish to generate a growth hormone 24/7, making it a massively mutated ball of growth hormones and disease.

Genetically Modified Salmon Threaten Genetic Stability of Food Chain

In the event that awareness is not spread and Congress allows the FDA to approve AquaAdvantage’ GM salmon, it will become the first approved GM animal for growth and human consumption.

 Modified salmon will mate with regular breeds, creating hybrid mutations that may likely never be tracked. Hybrid families that may continue to repopulate for generations, all containing modified genes. After being consumed by predators like sharks or others, the sharks are then affected by the genetically modified fish through the development of various health conditions conditions. In mice trials alone it was found that eating GMOs triggered mass tumors and early death in the animals — and that’s just crops. Genetically modified crops are concerning enough, but are much less complex than animals.

The fact of the matter is that no one truly knows the long term effects of GM crops, let alone GM animals. But hey, why not test it out on the public? After all, who cares? It’s not like the FDA will do anything to Monsanto despite the numerous studies linking GMOs to disease. Instead, they just say it’s pseudo science and that only FDA-backed ‘science’ is worth anything. Forget the fact that the only lifelong rat study done on GMOs found it led to tumor development.

So what can we do?

There are a number of methods here, but first and foremost the word needs to be spread far and wide that genetically modified salmon is being pushed through by the FDA. People despise GM products on average, with 90 plus percent in favor of at least labeling. In addition, there is a petition going around to send to politicians to ask them to stop this approval as they did in 2011.

Ultimately, it comes down to opposition. If enough people know this is coming and are very upset about it, they will have trouble ramming it through. That’s why they announce these things over Christmas weekend. They don’t want anyone to even hear about it — they want to make it harder to popularize since hardly anyone saw it.

We can beat this as we did back in 2011, and the FDA knows it. Their dirty tactics are not effective in the technological age in which the transfer of information is more powerful than ever. Share this news and spread the word. Block genetically modified salmon from getting put on your dinner table without any labels.

 

Doctors’ psychological triggers to make you vaccinate your children

By  JEFFRY J. AUFDERHEIDE | VACTRUTH | DECEMBER 19, 2012

If you’ve ever been in a doctor’s office with a child, you know what I mean.

Doctors are well known for applying psychological pressure to parents questioning vaccines. Maybe you’ve experienced this pressure?

Here are five psychological triggers doctors use against you, the parent, and some of the suggestions you can use to overcome them.

 PSYCHOLOGICAL TRIGGER #1: POWER OF AUTHORITY

This is one of the most powerful psychological triggers, as you will see.

Doctors are in a position of authority – they went to medical school. (You didn’t.) This fact alone puts them in a unique position and you are paying for their advice.

Society in general makes assumptions that doctors know the absolute best information for your health relating to all topics – especially vaccines. Often, doctors repeat the information given to them by the Centers for Disease Control and the Food and Drug Administration.

The doctor’s assumption is this: if the FDA approves a drug and the CDC recommends it, it must be safe. Maybe they haven’t heard of 100,000 DEATHS yearly from adverse (FDA-approved) drug reactions? [1]

Taken to the extreme, some doctors abuse their power in a predatory fashion. The nature of their authority takes on a bully-like quality.

Should you listen to them about vaccines? After all, they are wearing a white coat.

Examples of the Power of Authority:

  • “According to Professor [Michael] Cohen, “in case after case, patients, nurses, pharmacists, and other physicians do not question the prescription.” “A physician ordered ear drops to be administered to the right ear of a patient suffering pain and infection there. But instead of writing out completely the location “right ear” on the prescription, the doctor abbreviated it so that the instructions read “place in R ear.” Upon receiving the prescription, the duty nurse promptly put the required number of ear drops into the patient’s anus…Yet neither the patient nor the nurse questioned it.” [3]

What You Can Do…

Realize the doctor may not have as much knowledge or training on vaccines as you think. The Latin word for doctor is “docere,” meaning to teach. Is your doctor teaching you how to build better health, or are they using their position to convince you to get your child injected?

Doctors only have as much power as you give them – he or she cannot make a guarantee that a vaccine will work, nor can they guarantee that it will be safe.

Recognize the power rests in YOU! The choice is yours to say “YES” or “NO!”

 PSYCHOLOGICAL TRIGGER #2: GUILT TRIPPING OR SHAMING THE PARENT

Another common tactic is to make a parent feel bad for even questioning vaccines.

It takes the form of bluntly insulting the parent. It could also be underhanded remarks or comments (passive-aggressive behavior). The predictable result? It fills the parent with guilt or shame for questioning the doctor.

In turn, the parent may have unanswered questions but reluctantly goes along with the doctor’s orders and vaccinates their child.

This is a very powerful psychological trigger when combined with the power of authority in a one-on-one setting.

Examples of Guilt Tripping and Shaming:

Doctors (and nurses) have been reported as saying very cruel things to parents who question vaccines or do not vaccinate, such as:

  • You are a parasite to society.
  • You are being irresponsible.
  • You are a bad parent.
  • You are not a doctor.
  • Your child cannot go to school without vaccines.
  • Your child will die without “life-saving” vaccines.
  • You are free-loading off of society’s herd immunity.
  • You are getting the benefits of vaccination without paying the price.
  • You are an “Internet Mom.”
  • You don’t understand science.
  • You do not care about your child’s health or future.
  • Your ignorance is causing diseases to come back.

What You Can Do…

Recognize this behavior for what it is: a form of passive-aggressive behavior coming from the insecurities of the doctor. It’s pure emotion.

Most mothers attend the well-baby checkups by themselves. Have your husband or a good friend who supports your decision come with you to the doctor’s office.

Here are some suggested questions you can ask your pediatrician. Naturally, use your own discernment:

  • Will you read out loud and review with me the ingredients of the vaccine you intend to inject into my child?
  • How will the combined ingredients in vaccines make my child healthier?
  • If vaccines work, how is my child a threat to vaccinated children?
  • If vaccines work, what is the point of booster shots?
  • Since every child is different biologically, how do you know when a vaccine works and when it does not? How do you test that?
  • What scientific tests do you perform before and after vaccination to rule out my child is having an adverse reaction?
  • If you inject my child with multiple vaccines at once, if there is an adverse reaction, how do you know which vaccine is the culprit?
  • Can you show me the safety studies showing me the effects of injecting multiple vaccines at once?

Note: Your doctor will not likely know the answers to these questions and get angry with you. If they get angry, you may experience psychological trigger #4 immediately!!!

 PSYCHOLOGICAL TRIGGER #3: SENSE OF URGENCY

If you are not prepared, this particular psychological trigger will catch you by surprise. Here’s how…

When you are in a medical setting – doctor’s office, birth room at the hospital, emergency room, etc. — doctors will use this setting with emotionally charged language to get your child vaccinated.

One caveat: Nurses can be very aggressive in this manner as well.

Nurses may inject a baby at any opportunity after birth – in the mother arms without asking (happened to me), while the baby is being “washed up,” or while the baby is being circumcised.

Example of Sense of Urgency:

One of the most outrageous examples I have been told is from an acquaintance of mine. Let’s call her Angie.

Angie’s child almost had his finger cut off in a freak accident at home. With the child’s finger dangling and needing to be addressed, the emergency room doctor started to pressure the mother into getting her child vaccinated on the spot!

If he didn’t get vaccinated right then and there, he was in imminent danger of getting a “life-threatening disease!” Can you believe it?

She stood her ground and told the doctor her son has already been through enough.

What You Can Do…

Why do you have to get a vaccine right on the spot? If you ask questions and want to find out more information about the toxic chemicals and dangerous biological agents a doctor injects into your child, you should have that right.

Recognize your doctor may use emotionally charged language. Here are some of the psychological keyword triggers to be aware of when your doctor refers to vaccines:

  • Referring to vaccines as being “life-saving.”
  • Referring to vaccines as being “safe and effective.”
  • Referring to vaccines as being “no-risk” or “very little risk.”
  • Using “death,” “debilitating,” and “deadly diseases” while referring to “vaccine-preventable diseases.”
  • Using the terms “vaccines” and “immunization” interchangeably as if they had the same meaning.

 PSYCHOLOGICAL TRIGGER #4: FEAR OF LOSS

Fear of loss has recently become a hot favorite for pediatricians.

This relatively new tactic is called “Firing Your Patient,” originating from the American Academy of Pediatrics. Here’s how this psychological trigger works.

If a parent questions vaccines or what the doctor says regarding vaccination, the doctor simply tells the parent he/she will no longer be the family’s doctor.

This method works extremely well because it puts the mother into a stressful fear-based state. She is being told to vaccinate her child on the spot or lose her doctor. Fortunately, there are answers and this is just another manipulation tactic.

Example of Fear of Loss:

This mock conversation between a doctor and patient is inspired by a comment left by Shawn Siegel on a recent article and illustrates the point beautifully.

Pediatrician: We’re done measuring and weighing your son. The nurse will be in shortly with the vaccines.

Jenny: Before she comes in, can I ask you a few questions about the vaccines? I’m a little nervous.

Pediatrician: Of course. What are you worried about?

Jenny: I’ve been doing research on the ingredients in vaccines and…

Pediatrician: Where did you look for this information?

Jenny: On the Internet …

Pediatrician: You can’t trust everything you read on the Internet. There’s a lot of bad information out there. The ingredients in vaccines are in such small amounts, you have nothing to worry about. Do you think the FDA or Centers for Disease Control would allow anything dangerous to be put into the vaccines?

Jenny: I don’t know – my neighbor’s son became autistic right after being vaccinated. She swears it was the vaccine and…

Pediatrician: Vaccines do not cause autism! It has been scientifically refuted. Life-saving vaccines are protective. Not vaccinating your child is irresponsible. Now if you have no further questions, I’ll send in the nurse.

Jenny: But all of these vaccines at once? Can’t my son just have one today? I’d like to investigate these other vaccines a little more before he has all of them at once. I’ve heard we can do an alternative schedule.

Pediatrician: There is nothing else to talk about. If you do not protect your son according to the recommended guidelines, I am going to ask you to leave my office right now. If your son dies from a deadly, vaccine-preventable disease, I will not have that on my conscience.

What You Can Do…

First, be aware of your options!

What do pediatricians do? They measure and weigh your baby – and vaccinate them! Do they teach you about nutrition or good health practices? Have you ever tried to ask a pediatrician to give you sound advice on nutrition? If not or you don’t think so … read on.

We “fired” our pediatrician when we realized what they actually did. Now we see a “friendly” family doctor, a chiropractor, nutritionist, naturopath, and even a doctor of osteopathic medicine (D.O.).

Dr. Robert Medelsohn has written a fantastic book to help you overcome many of your fears and worries, entitled How to Raise a Healthy Child in Spite of Your Doctor. [4]

 PSYCHOLOGICAL TRIGGER #5: THE PROMISE OF HOPE

Doctors frame vaccines as a ‘preventative measure’ for disease while completely ignoring the major roles better nutrition, food storage and handling, sanitation, and hygiene have played in decreasing disease in society.

They want you to believe injecting vaccines laced with formaldehyde, aluminum, MSG, and viruses cultured off of animal tissue will protect your child from disease.

It really is a promise of false hope. Here’s why …

Doctors apply the same “answer” (vaccines) to every child expecting the same result. Parents know not every child is biologically the same – do doctors?

Example of The Promise of Hope:

You may hear analogies to how vaccines work. One of the recent favorites is comparing vaccines to seat belts. Doctors will tell you that if you get vaccinated it will be like protecting yourself as if you were wearing a seat belt and got into a car crash.

They say vaccines work in the same way – they protect you from any future “crash.” After your child is vaccinated, they are protected.

Here’s the rest of the story …

What You Can Do…

It seems like common sense and deserves repeating: good health does not come through the end of needle!

Let’s go with the seat belt analogy from above. Seat belts are not worn just once or twice. To be effective, you must wear them every time you get into the car. Similarly, good health requires your regular attention.

Here are some common sense suggestions you can take right now and “wear your seat belt” every day:

  • Wash your hands 5-6 times a day – especially after going to the bathroom or before preparing food.
  • Drink clean water
  • Eat or juice organic raw foods
  • Properly store and prepare your food

Here are some of my favorite resources regarding the topic:

 CONCLUSION

Doctors push vaccines – and many do use a combination or all of the five psychological triggers mentioned above. Some are unaware of their manipulation – and unsuspecting parents are even more vulnerable to this pressure.

Lastly, the only way not to be affected by these psychological triggers is to be an informed parent – read books and vaccine package inserts. This information will give you the confidence and courage you need to stand up to an emotional doctor.

I haven’t covered every single psychological trigger used – so if you know of more or have a story to tell, share it in the comments section below.
