The mainstream media and internet discussion forums seek to discredit anyone who questions vaccine safetey, using the propaganda smear term, "anti-vaxer" which is generally followed by inflammatory language designed to personally attack people who suggest there is a connection and derail public discussions of vaccine safety. People on the payroll of corporations and special interest lobbies patrol public discussion of vaccines on the internet, pretending to be typical users.

The media repeats over and over on television, in magazines, and on the internet that there is absolutely no connection between vaccines and autism as do the scientists, organizations and studies they cite. So if the media and their experts are correct, why are the number of people continually growing who choose not to vaccinate themselves and their families - or to limit or delay vaccinations?

Certainly special interest groups are trying their hardest to pressure parents into complying with the current vaccine schedule which has grown to 69 doses of 16 vaccines by the age of 18. In fact, these special interest groups, elected officials and lawyers looking for more ways to make money are threatening to launch a campaign to sue parents who choose not to vaccinate their children. The unpatriotic Patriot Act, which takes away our basic constitutional rights, has a provision to force citizens, including children, to be immunized in times of emergency.

Perhaps the reason the perception that vaccines cause autism simply won't go away is because vaccines vaccines cause autism and millions of parents have now observed this first-hand. Autism, a rare diagnosis in the 1970's (1 in 10,000 in the U.S.) now effects over 60 million people worldwide, with 1 in 42 boys in the U.S. currently being diagnosed with autism. The fact that the United States government has a federal vaccine court to compensate with taxpayer money children who were harmed by vaccines is an admission of this. It is very difficult to prove vaccine damage through this court, but over 2,100 families have managed to get compensation for damage from this court since the 1980's. The federal government's own Vaccine Adverse Effects Reporting System (VAERS) database showed in March of 2015 adverse effects from the Hepatitis B vaccine to currently 55,688 and for the MMR to be 67276. Keep in mind that adverse effects are greatly under-reported and these are usually the most extreme cases. Chldren who have a subtler adverse effects which take months to manifest tend not to get reported. Also reported are 1053 people (mostly children under the age of 3) who died immediately after receiving the Hepatitis B vaccine. There is also additional research and reports from parents linking the Hepatits B vaccine to autism and to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.

The federal vaccine court created with taxpayer money to distribute to victims of vaccine damage in the 1980's and lobby-driven legislation paved the way for pharmaceutical companies being legally protected from being held accountable for the safety of the vaccines they create. No accountability lead to a gold rush by pharmaceutical companies trying to create new vaccines for profit. Each new vaccine added to the vaccine schedule resulted in billions of dollars of profits for pharmaceuticals. Once the vaccine court was in place, the number of vaccines, necessary or not, skyrocketed until today, children receive 49 doses of 14 vaccines before age 6. This is far more than children received before the 1980s and I personally received only 5 vaccines in my lifetime, growing up in the 1950's and 1960's.

When children are given shots with multiple diseases at once or are vaccinated with multiple vaccines at once, they are much more likely to have a vaccine reaction that results in permanent disability. Also, what often happens is the child is progressively damaged as they receive more immunizations until they final reach the tipping point and have a severe vaccine reaction. The most notorious vaccines for provoking a severe vaccine reaction are the Hepatitis B (HIB), Measles Mumps and Rubelle (MMR), and Diptheria, Pertussis, and Tetanus (DPT).

The primary reason the link between autism and vaccines won't go away is this: thousands of parents observed their normally developing children lose language and other developmental milestones after receiving a vaccine; many of these children were eventually diagnosed with autism. I have talked with hundreds of these parents over the past 15 years and I am one of those parents whose son lost language immediately after a vaccine and was later diagnosed with autism.

Also note that vaccine damage isn't just linked to autism; vaccine damage is also linked to other health and developmental issues, including ADHD, diabetes, allergies, asthma, seizures, Alzheimer's in the elderly (flu shots), cancer, and various other auto-immune conditions.

The "pro-vaxers" always cite the polio vaccine as the gold standard for vaccination and spread fear that terrible pandemics like polio will return because of "anti-vaxers." The problem with this argument is that it is too simplistic and derails any discussion of specific vaccines, evaluating benefit vs risk on a vaccine-by-vaccine basis, and requiring pharmaceutical companies to take steps to ensure that vaccines that are made safer and potentially harmful ingredients are removed.

Obviously some vaccines are more critical than others and they could ALL be reviewed for safety and manufacturing processes. Certainly it can't be good to inject babies with aluminum, mercury, and formaldehyde (standard ingredients in most vaccines). The FDA has even conveniently allowed the term "mercury free" to be used in vaccines that still have some mercury content. What needs to happen is that the safety of vaccines and how they are made needs to be discussed in public, not just in back rooms in Washington, so that the public can decide what is best for their own health.

Vaccines can and should be made more safely. Vaccines, like the Hepatits B vaccine, clearly does more harm than good and should be removed from childhood vaccine schedules. The MMR is also a strong candidate for removal to the large number of reported vaccine reactions. Some vaccines simply don't work well and should be discontinued, like the flu vaccines, which only work 50% of the time and can also cause the flu and increases the risk of Alzheimers by a factor of a 10 in the elderly. Also new technologies are on the horizon that use different strategies to prevent disease and may obsolete vaccines.
