The Vaccine Debate: Why Does it have to be pro or con?

We should all be pro-health

February 9, 2015

Last week, CNN: Money published a video attempting to ostracize two nonprofit foundations, Dwoskin Family Foundation and Barry Segal’s Focus for Health Foundation, who have funded scientific research on vaccine safety.

Barry Segal responds to recent media attention on vaccines:

The pharmaceuticals and media want this debate to be pro or con. That is not the way it should be, someone can be pro vaccine, but not be in favor of the flu shot (with 25 mcg’s of mercury) being injected into a pregnant woman, a process the CDC refuses to test. Another example, but there are many-Can be pro vaccination but not want to vaccinate a newborn at birth to prevent Hepatitis B, a sexually transmitted disease. Women can be tested and only 1-2% of them test positive, and as in other developed countries only these babies get vaccinated.

The CNN report was factual in this respect: Dwoskin Family Foundation and Focus for Health (FFH) did fund these organizations. With Generation Rescue, FFH funded a vaccinated vs. unvaccinated study, which the CDC refuses to do.

Focus for Health funding decisions are not intended to get parents to think negatively about vaccines, as the CNN reporter stated. Our goal is to improve the health in our country and especially advocate for the “vulnerable child”. Vaccines work for some people. It’s also a fact that vaccines are not 100% effective and may not create the intended immunity in some people.

Parental Control of Vaccination

The most recent measure of autism prevalence in the US is 1/68. Since 4 million children are born in the US each year, 58 thousand will develop autism. We are frightened by the 100 people infected with measles, but ignore the 58 thousand children who develop autism each year.

Some autistic children are only mildly affected mentally. However, the CDC autism prevalence studies (authorized by a 2000 Act of the US Congress) proved that about 40% of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are intellectually disabled, having an IQ of 70 or less. Hence, 23 thousand intellectually disabled autistic children are created each year. Every one of these is an overwhelming tragedy to its parents, and will require care for his/her complete life.

The medical experts do not have any answer for the cause of autism, yet they are absolutely sure there is no link between vaccines and autism. Nevertheless, countless parents have observed that their child had a severe reaction after receiving a vaccination, and subsequently descended into the non-verbal, isolated world of autism.

There are two major aspects of autism: (1) neurological damage, and (2) immune system damage. It is unlikely that vaccines cause autism. Something else probably causes the basic autism disorder. The basic autism disorder probably gives the child a weak immune system. Since vaccines are designed to operate on people with normal immune systems, a severe reaction can occur when a child with a weak immune system is vaccinated. This reaction very likely causes the neurological damage of autism.

Whether or not this theory of autism is correct, it is clear that many children have severe reactions to vaccines. The medical doctors have no way of determining which children can tolerate vaccines, and which cannot. It is obvious that the parents should have the right to decide whether or not their child should be vaccinated.

It is often claimed that “Vaccines Cause Autism”. However, a major argument against this claim is that nearly all children are vaccinated, but only about 2% have ASD. A much better claim is that “Vaccines Trigger Autism”, but a more precise statement is that “Vaccines Cause the Neurological Damage of Autism”.
