Silent Epidemic; The Untold Story of Vaccines Movie dire - YouTube

Miller, Peter. Untold Stories of Vaccines Movie Dire.  6 October 2013. Web. 11 July 2014.

Christine Jowers's insight:

According to speakers in this video, vaccines are not long term protection.  They only provide short term immunity and even the lab rats eventually succombed after vaccination once the actual disease was introduced into their systems.  On several occasions, these various videos offer proof of the inefficacy of vaccines as well as safety.  Pharmaceutical companies are said to be getting richer and richer as we take the risks with our children's lives.  How many more sacrifices have to be made for the sake of science and the government?  According to this video, asthma and other autoimmune diseases are on the rise as we give more and more vaccines to our children at earlie and earlier ages. We, as parents, are sending our children's bodies into overdrive.

"It's Spreading" By Jill LePore, The McGraw_Hill Reader: Issues Across the Disciplines

Lepore, Jill.  "It's Spreading".  McGraw-Hill Reader.  11th Ed. Muller, Gilbert H. New York, New York. 2011. 691-700. Print.

Christine Jowers's insight:

By Lepore's example of a "parrot fever" scare in the early 1900s, she shows how some diseases can be completely blown out of proportion by individuals as well as the media.  What then was not commonly known to have a treatment, does today.  This writing gives good examples of how things can be taken to the extreme as well as how some people handle "germs".  Regardless of how contagious a disease may be, further research should be done before calling any disease an epidemic.  Today's vaccines were created out of someone taking diseases seriously, while some of the vaccines were created by someone taking a "germ" out of proportion.  This writing shows how unneccesary some actions really are, while others-such as sanitization are very necessary.  The bottom line for this article is to inform yourself, don't take the media too seriously as some people just do not always know what they are talking about.  With the "parrot fever" scare, it later came to be known as an infection according to the article that can be treated with antibiotics which is the case for many illnesses today as well.

Vaccination Risk Awareness Network

Vaccination Risk Awareness Network | Vaccines | Scoop.it

vran.org.  Various authors. Web. 8 July 2014.

Christine Jowers's insight:

From personal stories of adverse reactions to vaccines, to information concerning exemptions-this website serves to inform.  Not only to inform, but to stress awareness about the possiblities that side effects can and do happen regardless of what each individuals stand point may be concerning vaccines.  There absolutely are two sides to every coin and the writers of this website wants everyone to know there are alternatives should anyone choose to research and seek them out.  Chiropractic care is one of those options of alternative medication to naturally boost the immune system.  Often times, vaccines such as the flu shot is forced upon the public by employers.  The vaccine risk awareness network desires to raise awareness not only about childhood diseases, but about the flu shot as well as more recent vaccines such as the HPV vaccine and others.  This website offers invaluable information that may not be offered elsewhere.  Be informed about the risks of any and all vaccinations!

The Not So Obvious Dangers of Vaccines

The Not So Obvious Dangers of Vaccines | Vaccines | Scoop.it

Vaccine Liberation.  "Free Your Mind. From the Vaccine Paradigm". 22 July 2011. Web. 8 July 2014.

Christine Jowers's insight:

The purpose of this image is a reality check to explain exactly what ingredients are in vaccines. Compare list to CDC website to compare/contrast accuracy to see if there are similarities/differences. Will the general public ever know the truth behind vaccines and what each one contains?  Until further studies are done, the safety of vaccines will continue to be in question and there are always going to be skeptics to challenge anything that comes from the government.  While it is known that vaccines do contain thimerosol as well as mercury, it may or may not be a surprise if these vaccines really do contain cells from aborted fetuses.  Mercury alone is a dangerous additive as if a thermometer itself is broken, hospitals would evacuate so why are we injecting this mess into our bodies and hoping to protect our self from these diseases?  Also, why is latex rubber added to these shots?

Vaccination Statistics

Vaccination Statistics | Vaccines | Scoop.it

Mercola, Dr. Joseph. Vaccination Statistics. 1997- 2014. Web. 9 July 2014.

Christine Jowers's insight:

Dr. Mercola goes into depth not only about the dangers but also the contents of what the government does not want the public to know about the truths of vaccine contents.  From mercury being listed as a disinfectant/preservative to baby hamster kidneys and wastes/other products of those that have passed of Hepatitis B.  Much like foods that we shouldn't eat from fast food, as is the case with the various listed products and ingredients these vaccines potentially do contain: we shouldn't be allowing the government to inject into us.  Which leads to a new question.  For those that develop these vaccines, would they inject their own body with the contents that are being pushed on the general public?  Do they believe in the effectiveness and safety or is it all about a big payday?

Medical exemptions to school immunization requi... [J Infect Dis. 2012] - PubMed - NCBI

Stadlin, S. Bednarczyk, RA., and Omer SB. Hubert Department of Global Health, Emory University of Public Health. Atlanta, GA. 30322. 1 October 2012. Web. 11 July 2014.

Christine Jowers's insight:

Article very briefly discusses the medical exemption rates of children whose parents have rightfully been hesitant to have them vaccinated.  This article serves as informational purposes and states briefly that in some states, it is easier to get this exemption, however, the criteria in other states make it more difficult to obtain.

Parents need to be aware and realize that they do have a choice.  These vaccines are not forced upon us as society and there are not only medical exemptions available but religious exemption as well.  Do the research and be informed, bottom line.  Do not be forced or feel forced into anything until all the necessary information has been found and/or supplied.

I'm Not "Anti-Vaccine," I'm "Pro-Information"

I'm Not "Anti-Vaccine," I'm "Pro-Information" | Vaccines | Scoop.it

Woodward, Rob.  "I'm Not AntiVaccine, I'm Pro Information" Modern Mom. 2014. Web. 8 July 2014.

Christine Jowers's insight:

The writer discusses his persepective as being more Pro choice on  the vaccine movement.  Parents should have the choice of whether or not to obtain a vaccine for their child.  With the option of obtaining exemptions, they do have the choice.  While not being for or against, Woodward expresses the importance of just being informed enough about vaccines to be able to assess the individual child and the situation as well as to assess the risks associated enough to be able to make an intelligent decision.  By assessing the child and the environment, this could be the greatest choice-or step in making a decision for the child.  Woodward also discusses the option of just postponing vaccinations rather than going by the recommended schedule of what the CDC suggests in order to not be too excessive with vaccinations.  Furthermore, Woodward mentions the possibility that while he doesn't believe that vaccines directly cause autism and other diseases-perhaps the excessive use and schedule has some type of link to the problems that may alter the body as the immune system adjusts once the vaccine(s) has been given.

FL News: How the Anti-Vaccine Movement Threatens Us All - Family Life Podcasts

FL News: How the Anti-Vaccine Movement Threatens Us All - Family Life Podcasts | Vaccines | Scoop.it

Price, Bob. FL News: How the Anti Vaccine Movement Threatens Us All.  Podcast. 14 Feb 2011. Web. 8 July 2014.

Christine Jowers's insight:

Various listeners with different perspectives give their reasons and some valid points about why they do or do not believe in vaccinations.  From the materials used or believed to be used in the vaccinations to the possible adverse events these vaccines believe to be the cause of, individuals comment their beliefs of vaccines do more harm than good.  

Dr. Offit on the other hand argued his points of the fact that the decision whether or not to vaccine doesn't just affect the individual but others around as well who may potentially be exposed.  He also argues that we are suffering in today's time.  He states that the current vaccine schedule is well tested over time and the only thing that happens is parents prolong the time of susceptibility of being exposed.  While he understands the fears surrounding "should we vaccinate?"  He urges that for safety, these vaccines are very necessary.  Many fears have been fueled by false conceptions, and Offit states that these false conceptions have only come to light through fears.

Vaccine Side Effects: What Every Mom Should Know. - AGE OF AUTISM

Vaccine Side Effects: What Every Mom Should Know. - AGE OF AUTISM | Vaccines | Scoop.it

Jameson, Cathy. "Vaccine Side Effects:What Every Mom Should Know." Age of Autism. 1 December 2013. Web. 9 July 2014.

Christine Jowers's insight:

Writer Cathy Jameson shares words of urgency for parents and other individuals to consider all the information available as well as not readily available before getting vaccines.  Jameson urges that the side effects listed on required handouts are not the only side effects and she stresses the urgency to consider the not only long term supposed benefits but also the extent of the potential long term risks as well.  The government and those profiting from the vaccines only want to provide so much information and Jameson insists she just wants to help.  The side effects listed appear quite severe to be taking such a risk to inject ourselves and our children with such harmful contaminants and Jameson makes a valid point about the immune system kicking into overdrive.  Our bodies were designed with immune systems for a reason and the big question for many is do we help it or are we hindering it with the vaccines that are required and/ or available today?

Ian's Voice

Ian's Voice | Vaccines | Scoop.it

Gromowski, Scott and Deanna.  Ian's Voice. 2014. Web. 9 July 2014.

Christine Jowers's insight:

The incredibly heartbreaking true story of one case of a horribly adverse reaction to a vaccine.  It's hard to imagine what parents go through in circumstances like this.  To know in their hearts that a vaccine and medications are slowly killing their son, yet to be ignored and ridiculed by doctors and other medical professionals.  It's stories like this that go above and beyond anything that could be written on paper concerning vaccines.  If your heart doesn't go out to these families, then it is in question.  There are alarming statistics to show the amount of reactions to vaccines.  It would take much more research over time to find them all, but the sad truth is this really does happen and it is not the government that suffers.  It is first and foremost these children and the families of these children.  While cases of adverse reactions may not show up every day and they may or may not be more common or well known, they do happen and are very real.
