Measles Epidemic: This is what the numbers say

With the recent media-driven hysteria over measles, I’ve been asked by friends, co-workers, and family if I was concerned since I am an ex-vaxxer and have likely not vaccinated my littles with MMRV.

Concerned about the measles that lurks in our population? No.
Concerned about my children getting measles? No.
Concerned about how people lack the capacity to research the actual incidence of measles as related to the population density of children? Yes.
Concerned about people regurgitating the propaganda and bashing parental choice? Yes.

Why am I not concerned about the first two? You will have to see my former post here: Your Herd Immunity is a Myth

As for the rest… we have given mainstream media too much credit in our country. Let us look at the numbers. According to the U. S. Census Bureau in 2017, we estimated the total population at 325,719,178. Of this population, 23% were under the age of 18 years; this gives us roughly 39,086,301 children in the U. S. under age 18.

If I take a gross overview of the incidence of measles in the United States over the last ten years (Because that data is readily available to me. Thank you, CDC! See table.) That gives us 2,059 cases of measles across EVERY age group for ten years.

trends-measles-cases

If I were to apply this number to our current population of children alone, that is an incidence of 0.0000527% of those aged <18. A minuscule percentage, even when I apply the total number over the course of a decade to the population of today. Of course, this is an innacurrate calculation as population fluctuates.

If I were to apply the recent numbers (2018 to currently) for a rate of 473 cases… that is 0.0000121% of the entire population of children alone. The incidence of measles is 1.2 in every 100,000 children! That is also known as a 12 IN A MILLION chance that your child got measles last year. What?! Why is this mainstream news?!

UPDATE: number exaggerated by CDC on actual incidence of measles-related deaths, [see image below].

PIC Measles Memorandum to Senate

Do you want to know what is more critical than measles? The rate of disease in our youth that is 100% preventable by diet and lifestyle choices. The World Health Organization reports that 71% of deaths are caused by NON-COMMUNICABLE DISEASES worldwide! Measles is communicable. The top two killers are coronary artery disease (heart disease) and stroke; the top two in the U. S. are heart disease and cancer. (I am not going to touch cancer or autoimmune diseases right now, because that could be a blog series of its own.)

The U. S. has a population that touts 1 in 3 obese children. This incidence is tangible. This risk factor leads to early-onset diabetes and hypertension which contribute to coronary artery disease, the leading cause of death! So why aren’t we talking about the unhealthy foods marketed to our children, given to them in school, and promoted by mainstream media and big business? Because: MONEY. These things are lucrative.

There is no profit in growing your GMO-free, water and sunshine fed produce in your backyard and certainly no money in a healthy child. However, there is a lot of money in autoimmune disorders, chronic disease, and frequenting the pediatrician and the plethora of specialists we have created in the medical community for all of your sickcare needs.

Let us look at the numbers again. According to the Diabetes Report Card of 2017, in 2015 there were 193,000 new diagnoses of diabetes in those <20 years old. In one year, 0.005% of children were newly diagnosed with diabetes, not including those already diagnosed; 5 in 1,000 children were diagnosed with diabetes. They also report a 6.6% annual increase of diabetes among those <20 years of age. Diabetes is a risk factor for chronic conditions including… You guessed it! CORONARY ARTERY DISEASE.

According to the CDC, there are 1.3 million children aged 12-19 diagnosed with hypertension. For every 100 children, 3 will be diagnosed with hypertension using the CDC data. Read that again. Hypertension is also a major risk factor for that leading killer!

The U.S. spends almost $10,000 per capita in “health” care. This is double the second-highest spender, Canada. Compared to Australia, Canada, France, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom we rank DEAD LAST in health outcomes. How embarrassing.

While the mainstream media is attacking parental choice and pushing government mandates, we must remind ourselves that our government does not have a track record for success in health matters, but sure spends a lot of money in the meantime. With poor health trends mimicked in our children, it is time that parents take responsibility for the health of their littles… It is time that we question mainstream practices and consult the evidence.  It is time we stand up, recognize what matters most, and identify the histerics.

Informed parents are not concerned about measles. Informed parents are not mainstream. Informed parents are often ridiculed by powerful entities. Do not be mistaken. We are educated, vigilant, and fiercly protective of our own. Ball is in your court.

Shalom, light, and love.

They do not care about your children.

This has been a long time coming… So, let’s get started.

The Department of Health and Human Services neglected to study the vaccination program for safety and efficacy for almost 30 years. Surprised? What’s more is that THIS CAME OUT IN JULY AND IT WAS NOT MAJOR NEWS. Nope, not a sliver surprised about that part, eh?

How can we vehemently protect a program that is not held accountable by anyone? How do we recognize that mainstream media does not hold our best interests and will not call out the government for slipping up yet again (Google “CDC Whistleblower” for the ball dropped there and buried into silence), yet we protect a massive medical program that is instituted, funded, and promoted by that same government?

A little backstory. In the early 1980s, when the vaccine schedule increased for the first time, parents were suing vaccine manufacturers for injuries and death of their children after vaccine administration. Vaccination was new and reactions were occurring. These pharmaceutical companies realized the cost of litigation was unsustainable so they approached the federal government with plans to cease making vaccines.

The government decided that vaccines were important and they would solve the problem by taking liability off the manufacturers, absorbing the expenses, and limiting costs of litigation by capping amounts that were paid to families. They also stated that they would task the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services to create a task force to conduct safety studies. Thus begat the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 (H. R. 5546): http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/NBK220067/

You can also look up full-text of the legislation in the congressional database. Legal jargon is so much fun to read, believe me, I have almost a decade of it under my belt. Much of it is about limiting claims, releasing liability from manufacturers, creating the Vaccine Advisory Committee, and a tidbit at the end about safety studies going forth.

The National Vaccine Advisory Committee and the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services were tasked to conduct studies of the entire schedule 2 or 3 years after the passing of this bill in 1986. The failed to do so. How did this come out just recently?

Robert F. Kennedy and a non-profit foundation sued the federal government earlier this year for neglecting to follow the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) when they requested the results of the studies conducted by the DHHS starting in 1988/1989 and so forth. The government stated that no FOIA breach was made as there were no studies found. This information was released July 9, 2018. The document is here with a synopsis: http://icandecide.org/government/ICAN-HHS-Stipulated-Order-July-2018.pdf

There you have it, folks! The current vaccine schedule is touted as “safe and effective” yet this is unproven. Untested, highly-recommended, and government-approved.

Do you still wonder why parents are concerned about the changes witnessed in their children? Don’t patients know their bodies best? Wouldn’t you think there is some truth to the parent knowing their child? Why distrust the patient? What do we, parents, have to gain for declining medical interventions? Do we err on the side of do no harm anymore?

America is reactive. We are calling for studies after all these things have happened. Health should never be reactive. It is time enough that longitudinal studies be conducted to see what has resulted in our population of vaccinated people. Since the schedule was pushed on parents in the late 1980s and early 1990s, we have enough people to do a mass study. More recently, what health effects have resulted in the last 10 years after the volume of vaccines tripled? Is there a positive (or negative) correlation?

We absolutely need a study conducted by the department of HHS before another child is injured by these biologics. Remember, you had a fraction of what is mandated on the infant schedule today. A fraction of this untested medication “recommendation.”

Saving the babies is a great, altruistic cause, but this is clearly not important enough to ensure safety first. The government bodies no not care, but we do. We hear you. We stand with you.

Shalom, light, and love.

The Art of Medical Kidnapping: Alfie Evans

If you have not heard of this, that is mainstream media working at its finest. Only social media will show you the harsh truth about the world and governments. Take the time to catch up with a quick Google, Twitter, Facebook, or another social platform search then return to this post.

THIS IS SOCIALIZED MEDICINE. Is this really what you want the U.S. to have?! Should this be the standard? Should governments choose who receives and doesn’t receive medical care? Should insurance companies make those choices instead (because they certainly do)? Don’t be fooled… medical kidnapping already happens in America. That’s right! This is why informed consent should be heavily protected and upheld.

I cannot begin to fathom how these parents are functioning or coping. Honestly, I don’t want to imagine that reality. Their rights to their child were taken from them by the government who ruled to end this toddler’s life. The “high courts” ruled to end his life even though another hospital was willing to take over his care and Italy granted him citizenship to get him there (due to the plea of his parents). The hospital, Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, could have removed their ties and let the patient go, but they denied him this opportunity. It wasn’t about resources, as the helicopters were ready and the Italian hospital was on standby.

Alfie Evans was extubated on Monday at 9 pm UK time, and he lives over 36 hours later. He breathes on his own, yet the hospital REFUSED to let him leave and withheld water for almost 24 hours. They planned to hold him prisoner until death. This is appalling. A second opinion hasn’t been given to him or his family. A second emergency court appeal denied his transition of care again. Another doctor and hospital (in his country of citizenship) are NOT ALLOWED to treat this patient. Rumors are that he is allowed to go home to die and strictly forbidden to seek alternate care. WHAT?!

Why is Alder Hey so adamant to control the end of his life? Are they hiding something? Have they mismanaged his care? This level of government control is frightening and should be a wake-up alarm to people around the world. Go ahead a look into Adler Hey and their organ harvesting mishaps. It may be unrelated to this case, but their hands are soiled with past crimes.

Let’s Talk About Parental Rights and Responsibilities

When you decide to have a child, it’s a big deal. You are in charge of another human life for at least the next 18 years. Sometimes this is longer. When you decide to have a child, you fear all of the unknowns. You are terrified of messing it up, so you research just about everything…

You look for the safest car seat. You spend hours on various safety websites. You compare brands and testimonies. You make sure it fits your car. You even find the safest seat in your car. You may (and should) get it inspected by a certified car seat inspector for proper securement. Some even buy a whole new car when they’re expecting! We did… a few times.

You look for the best crib and mattress. You’re scared to death of SIDS (which, by the way, is not suffocation) so you look for a breathable mattress. Maybe it is hypoallergenic or some fancy cooling gel type. You spend time comparing reviews.

You look for a sleeper for an additional place to sleep. You know infants sleep a lot and want eyes on them all the time, so you buy a sleeper. You might want them in your room for the first few weeks or months and can’t fit the crib, so you buy a sleeper. You don’t buy any sleeper, you buy the one that rocks, changes positions, and plays music or soothing sounds. You buy the one that gets the best ratings. You want ultimate comfort for your baby.

You look for a stroller. Does it come with the car seat? What if I want one for jogging or different terrain? Are the tires plastic or rubber? Does it come with a weather shield? Maybe you opt to buy a baby carrier. Which one is the most comfortable? Should I try babywearing? What brands are the best? You read and read.

You look for a diaper bag. Am I going to carry bottles? How many pockets does it have? Does it have extra cooling space? Can I wash it? Do I like the straps? How many diapers will it fit? How much clothing can I pack?

You look at diapers. You have a friend that uses cloth, maybe you look into it and reach out to her. What about disposables? Which is cheapest? What brand is best? Which ones won’t give my baby a rash? What about rash cream? I need some of that too, right? You look into it.

You research some of these things, maybe all of them, maybe more… because this is YOUR baby. You care for them. The minute they hit your chest, your whole world is different. You have a fierce love for this tiny human. You will do anything for them; then the nurse comes at them with a needle. They cry. You cry. Did you ever look into it? Did you ever look at newborn interventions? You had a birth plan, did you include your baby? If so, you did a lot more research. You looked at cord clamping, skin-to-skin, and indications for “eye goop.” You looked up newborn vaccinations.

The hospital or staff told you it was routine. They told you it was mandatory, and they had to have them, but is this YOUR child or does this new baby belong to the hospital? Does this baby belong to the pediatrician? Do they belong to the government? How about your state? Do you think this baby belongs to the CDC? After all, they are the ones who proposed the vaccination schedule. The CDC and ACIP (Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices) are the ones that recommend the vaccines. Do they own your child? No? Then why are they making decisions for your child?

You should look up the schedule. You should research the diseases, their history, and their treatment. You should research the vaccines. You have the ability at your fingertips. You are the parent. This is your responsibility. You did it for everything else, so why is this someone else’s territory? These substances go into your newborn’s body. This developing infant gets these biologics… you should know what they are. This is your baby. This is your responsibility. If you want to pass that responsibility off to another person, go for it. That is your choice. Nothing about that is “normal.” Passing off parental responsibility should not be seen as the norm. What should be seen as the norm is parents making informed decisions and having open discussions with healthcare professionals. That should be normal.

Remember, most doctors are not scientists. They don’t usually know the intricacies of vaccine manufacturing, “screening,” testing, approval, courts, payouts, and events reporting. Pediatricians follow protocols mandated upon them by entities that don’t go to med school. Even medical journals are becoming drug advertisements (see video). The art of medicine has been drained by corporate interests, demands of insurance companies, and government protocols. Doctors have been shackled to mandates from people who haven’t been to med school. Providers worry more about litigation than medicine. They cannot deviate, for they will be questioned. Even if it is in the best interest of the patient, they are forced to do otherwise. There is no money in wellness. Think about that. It is no secret that we have the sickest developed nation, and our children are now subject to our poor health habits. Something isn’t working, and we all know governments destroy just about everything. They destroy our money, relationships with other countries, relations within our society with the help of mainstream media, personal rights (there is no shortage of that). So, back to those rights…

Right to body autonomy means that you have ownership of your body. It is your own and you control it. This also goes for your children. They own their body and have the right to their body. You make decisions for them, until they have the mental capacity to do so for themselves. If you didn’t have body autonomy, you could be taken from your home for no reason, imprisoned, tested upon. Somebody could break your bones, stab you, beat you and you’d have no recourse. If you don’t own your body, who does? Right to bodily autonomy is the foundation of liberty.

How is it that in today’s America, in what’s supposed to be a “freed” country, parents are pushed around by health care professionals and government bodies to inject biologics into their children? How is that possible? This is not individual liberty. This is a medical mandate reminiscent of Hitler’s Nazi Medical Experiments.

It is time to rise, parents. You are raising future America. Is it going to be a place where adults don’t believe they have a right to their body? Will it be a place where the government decides who gets what medical interventions? What happens when millions are maimed and killed by said interventions? Without the right to body autonomy, you won’t have a choice, and they won’t have a consequence. Sounds like the predicament we already face with our infants.

Children are the responsibility of their parents, let’s not diminish that role. Parents need to arm themselves with knowledge. Read like you did when preparing for a newborn and baby-proofing your home. We must empower ourselves and each other with the strong message of being responsible for our children (and self) and becoming more educated. There is always more to learn.

Shalom, light, and love.

Lesson #3.5: Education is Key to Informed Consent, Everything Else is Coercion

Part 2 of 2.

Aside from the “medical neglect” fiasco, the nurse felt like the pediatrician involving the DA, PD, and CPS stemmed from a huge misunderstanding. The pediatrician hadn’t been in to speak with me since she threatened to call the very people who visited the afternoon prior. So, the nurse convened a meeting. The pediatrician, charge nurse, and my primary nurse came in. They spoke their side. I spoke mine. I questioned everything. I got vague answers. She didn’t care to see what I compiled on my laptop. I questioned the dangers, showing her the insert. The nurses downplayed the adverse effects listed, saying the neurological effects were for older populations. One even said the neurological risks were with multiple vaccines and not for this vaccine (though, it is written in its specific insert). Somehow the immature immune system and developing organs of a newborn are more adept to take on this vaccine than an adult with fully functioning immune systems and mature organs? Or, do we ignore presentations in infants? Perhaps, we call these presentations and conditions “idiopathic” and SIDS.

My husband arrived with the kids. We discussed the issues as a group. Well, they discussed. To stop the pediatrician from prying and fear of something happening to take our children from us, we consented. Under duress. I see now that this was not truly informed consent. Consent is an act of freewill. I should have protected him better. I didn’t.

Immediately after the vaccine (over 30 hours into his life), my infant developed horizontal nystagmus every time his gaze drifted. I pointed it out, and the pediatrician did not address it. This persisted for about 2-3 weeks. At his follow-up visit, I mentioned it again and the new pediatrician did not address it. At his one month visit, the nurse and pediatrician asked for clarification about his milestone questionnaire. “He sleeps 20 hours a day?!” “Yep. Including nursing sessions, he only has 4 hours of wakefulness.” That was an overestimate. It was sometime between month 2 and 3 when he started to come around.

I spent months following his birth compiling my research and knowledge. I was not prepared for the day of his birth, and I was going to be prepared for the in-clinic visit. I am prepared today. I even researched the adjuvant ingredients. Adjuvants are substances that the body would identify as foreign and mount a “stronger immune response” toward, at least that is the theory. They’ve used Aluminum in vaccines for so long that it is assumed to be “safe” because vaccines are assumed to be safe. See how that works?

Aluminum (Al) is present in our environment. We consume it. The EPA regulates the “safe” amount of aluminum in our water. Remember, there is a difference between consuming substances that confront your gastrointestinal tract (first line of defense) and bypassing all that and placing it into your muscle for direct absorption (sources calculate absorption within 10 minutes or sustained for weeks). Aluminum is poorly absorbed in the GI tract; this has been studied. Intramuscular (IM) aluminum has not been studied. The DHHS and Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR) states that “healthy serum levels of Aluminum are 1-3 mcg per liter.” A healthy adult (upper-end 5.5 liters of blood) would have a maximum serum Al level of 16.5 mcg. A newborn infant would have a max of 0.6 mcg Al for their entire blood volume. A single dose of the Hep B vaccine contains 225-500 mcg of Aluminum. TWO HUNDRED AND TWENTY-FIVE AT THE VERY LEAST. That is 375 times the healthy serum level for an infant! Are. We. Serious?!

The equivalent, 375 times the safety limit, for an adult is a 6,187.5 mcg Al injection. Who volunteers to test the effects of that? No? Does this not pose valid concerns? Health agencies say the amount of Al in vaccines is “extremely low.” By what standards? Why aren’t we questioning this adjuvant? It’s a neurotoxin, yet we give it to babies within minutes of life. A reckless, in my opinion, and clearly unsafe amount of it. What are the consequences of the entire Al quantity being released systemically within 10 minutes? How does that differ from a sustained release over time? Why don’t we study absorption IM of Aluminum? (Side note: I recently reviewed some documents and it looks like 2 doses of Hep B were given to my newborn, one of each type, in one single injection.)

But hey, correlation doesn’t equal causation and my healthy newborn may have coincidentally developed the eye drift and twitches 30 hours into life. My baby was simply categorized as “a sleepy baby.” Extreme drowsiness is a documented symptom of aluminum toxicity, but he was just an infant. How would we know? We have no qualms with too much sleep. If an adult acted that way, we would do a slew of tests because that isn’t normal. That’s what they tell us about anything developing after a vaccine. It is a coincidence that it developed after injection. This was a healthy newborn. That was not a coincidence. The ATSDR even reports “neurological effects” due to toxic levels of Aluminum. Don’t take my word for it, go fact check me on all of this. I’ll provide you some links.

If I only knew then what I know now, I would have demanded more from the pediatrician than a nod in your direction when I pointed out your nystagmus twice. I would have advocated better for you. I would have pressed them to acknowledge the concerns. I would have pointed out all of these facts, but mama was still learning. If I knew then what I know now, I would have stood my ground for you. You depend on me, and I won’t fail you again. Guaranteed.

Shalom, light, and love.
