“When all this went down I started to do my own research. I discovered no studies existed on the multiple vaccinations Noah received. The CDC endorses a program they have never even studied. When you watch an exasperated physician on T.V. admonishing a concerned American public by insisting “the studies have been done,” what he is saying is that hundreds of myopic studies on particular vaccines have indeed been conducted. They are available for your perusal at pubmed (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/. ) Not one study among them has examines the effects of Hepatitis B, diphtheria, tetanus, Pertussis, Hib b, pneumococcal, influenza, inactivated polio virus, measles, mumps, rubella, varicella, Hepatitis A, and all the accompanying adjuvants in those vaccines, when they are injected into the developing immune system of a toddler. This is the practice of simultaneous multiple vaccination. Government approved, physician recommended, NEVER tested. Don't you think we need to, at the very least, be able to question why?"
This is where I lost her.
A fundamental shift occurs within every person who has absorbed this information. As I am sure most of you reading this know. You are never the same. She wasn’t ready. She knew I was telling her the truth. I imagine this is what many a worker in the nazis' administrative offices rationalized. " Hmmm, strange. Looks like I just signed off on the paperwork ordering the extermination of an elementary school full of children. I think my 3rd grade teacher still works there. Wonder what's for lunch at the commissary today?"
The producer concluded our conversation by saying, "This is such a political issue, I really want to do a fair show, I really do." It’s not her fault. It’s Katherine Sebelius’s fault for instructing the “free media” to steer clear of our kind, by sending the false message that we are devoid of a scientific foundation. I'm just a mom on the front lines, no letters after my name. No title. No association. Just real life experience.
As you may have guessed, I didn’t make the cut for this “controversial" show. Nor did the respected doctors or celebrated authors from our camp. The stoic and strangely disconnected Allison Singer was there to represent. Desperate, sad, and overwhelmed parents were profiled. A sensationalized melee ensued. No one from our movement, a parents’ movement based on intellectual investigation, raw data, scientific truths, an unwavering commitment to the value of human life, and the right to an informed choice, was there to educate. I would say the Dr. Oz Show was progress had I not watched the testimony of Lynn Redwood before congress on the topic of vaccine safety, back in 2000, after Noah’s diagnosis is 2008! Her articulate presentation fell on the deaf ears of policy makers more than a decade ago. Solid research, concerned parents, sky-rocketing autism rates? What has been done? Nothing. More shots added to the schedule, more children falling ill, more parents told there is no rhyme or reason to the whole thing, it just "is".
This hyper-publicized show just involved the general public in the same one-sided debate that has been going on since the early 90’s. More stonewalling, more throwing their arms up in disbelief…we don’t know, we just don’t know! Well, we know, Dr. Oz. We know because we do the work, the hours of painstaking research. We read copious amounts of scientific, medical, and historic literature. We question physician after physician. We travel around the world looking for answers. We talk to each other. We compare notes. We write books and make documentaries. We hold conferences that physicians, parents, scientists and researchers from all over the world attend. I am not saying we have all the answers. I am saying we have the courage to ask the questions. Next time, allow us to share what we have learned.
