Mercury-Autism Debate

On Monday night, October 15, WSB 2 did a report on the ongoing debate about vaccinations and autism. A link to that broadcast and other information on the WSB 2 website is below.

Broadcast from Monday evening

Proposed Vaccination Schedule

Update: Thursday, October 18 published an article on Thursday, October 18, about how parents are citing religious reasons for not getting vaccines.

As I noted in an earlier post, my wife and I faced a similar situation with our younger son, Christopher. Many of the parents in the article are avoiding vaccines altogether. My wife and I just thought that the vaccine schedule was too much for a young child to handle and wanted to spread it out.

However, we knew spreading out Christopher's vaccinations would create a problem at his daycare. We obtained a doctor's recommendation, only to find out that Oregon (where we lived at the time) does not accept doctor's recommendations on this issue.

Ticked at Oregon's nearsightedness on this issue, I wrote a note requesting a religious exemption for Christopher. However, I scared my wife when I cited an exemption based not on my religious beliefs, but a wish to be exempted from the state-mandated religion concerning vaccinations.

The daycare director laughed when she read it. The State of Oregon accepted my request.

Does anyone out there know the rules for getting exemptions to state policy in Georgia on vaccinations? I still view vaccinations as necessary. It is the number of vaccinations that are required in so short a time that I have trouble accepting.

Dear Walt,

The Most Bitter Debate

There is no greater rancor in medicine than the autism-vaccine debate, and this debate has reached the federal vaccine court where 5000 autistic kids and their families are requesting compensation for vaccine injury.

In California it is a illegal to inject newborns with the mercury containing vaccines (such as the thimerosol Hep-B Shot), and it should be crime in your state as well.

Hepatitis B is transmitted with IV drug abuse, or via promiscuity, both of which are somewhat impossible for newborns. It is much safer to wait until the child is 3 years old to give the shot.

Hopefully, the injection of mercury into newborns will soon become a relic of the ancient past, taking its rightful place in the museum along with bloodletting and leeches. Until then, there is much work to be done to remove mercury from our vaccinations. As a nation, we can’t afford not to.

Thousands of families are reporting their normal children changed after receiving mercury-containing vaccines, and began displaying Autism symptoms (which mimic mercury poisoning).

There are many videos posted on U-Tube showing a typical story. The new born child develops normally, is then vaccinated and becomes autistic. After biologic treatment by a DAN physician the child dramatically improves. (Click Here for Video)
