Recently the GOP candidates for US President debated the issues and we were delighted to see that one of the most important issues facing our nation today, namely vaccine safety, was addressed by several candidates. Of course the candidates who expressed their concerns about vaccine safety were pilloried for doing so, but we’ve come to expect that from the pharma-funded media!
Donald Trump, Dr. Ben Carson, and Dr. Rand Paul, weighed in on the vaccine controversy by alternately stating that there are too many vaccines too soon and that many are unnecessary. Trump shared he was aware of the perfectly healthy children of his staff regressing into autism after vaccines.[i] (See candidates’ quotes below.)
So what gives? Federal law recognizes that vaccines injure and kill but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the pharmaceutical industry all proclaim the safety and necessity of the entire vaccine schedule.[ii] And now the candidates, two of whom are doctors, acknowledge problems with the vaccine schedule, a view shared by millions of Americans. As vaccines are given in combinations but only studied individually it is no wonder so many are concerned, not to mention there is no research demonstrating the safety of this practice – rather it is assumed safe. In addition, children receive 49 doses of 14 vaccines by age 6 and a total of 69 doses of 16 vaccines by age 18 but the safety and impact of this vaccine schedule has never been proven in a clinical study.[iii]
The CDC and most media deny any research exists, but there are in fact hundreds of studies connecting vaccines to a host of injuries including neurological damage, learning and speech delays, autoimmune disease, gastrointestinal disease, seizures, allergies, and more. Moreover, one hundred studies connect vaccines to autism.[iv],[v] The Catalogue of Science on our website contains links to over two hundred such research studies and case reports which document and explore a wide spectrum of vaccine injuries.
Given this growing and alarming body of research, combined with the public statements of the presidential candidates, we are urgently calling for a study comparing the health outcomes of vaccinated and fully unvaccinated children, a study the CDC has failed to conduct.
We wonder why the CDC has not and will not conduct a study of vaccinated and unvaccinated children. If they are so confident vaccines are safe, what do they have to fear?
The heath of American children has never been worse with over 50% or 32 million children suffering from a chronic illness or disability such as autism, obesity, allergies, asthma, learning delays and developmental disabilities.[vi] Most concerning of all is that science connects all these chronic conditions to vaccines and their ingredients.[vii] It is time for CDC to do a study comparing health outcomes of vaccinated to unvaccinated children. Any further delays serves to do nothing more than undermine their already faltering credibility. Every one of us should be demanding this study.
The candidates actual quotes:
Dr. Carson: “…vaccines are very important, certain ones, the ones that would prevent death or crippling…there are a multitude of vaccines which probably don’t fit in that category.”
Trump: “we’ve had so many instances, people that work for me, just the other day 2 years old, 2 and a half years old the child, the beautiful child went to have the vaccine and came back and a week later got a tremendous fever got very, very sick now is autistic. I only say, I’m in favor of vaccines, do them over a longer period of time, same amount but just in in little sections.”
Dr. Carson: “…we are probably giving way too many [vaccines] in too short a period of time and a lot of pediatricians now recognize that and I think are cutting down on the number and the proximity…and I think that’s appropriate.”
Dr. Paul: “I’m also a little concerned about how they’re all bunched up.”
