WARNING!!!

Vaccines cause adults!!!!

Anything in this world has people who are ‘For it’ and people who are ‘Against it’ this applies to everything… here are some easy ones

When it comes to certain things people often take a leap of faith in the hope that what they are routing for is for the overall good.
Then you have those people who are unable to take that leap who will cling to the edge of cliff by the smallest bits of earth.
Until very recently I have always ignored the ‘Anti-vaxxers’ but recently I have found the whole concept very engaging; forgive me if this gets a little ranty.

Jenny McCarthy; a world famous immunisation microbiologist has claimed… no wait. Sorry that isn’t what she is famous for. She is in fact famous for getting her cooch out for magazines. This obviously makes her thoroughly educated to be able to accurately dispute the effectiveness of vaccines. Well not the effectiveness so to speak but the side effects. She has continuously spread the disproven idea that vaccines cause autism. More specifically the MMR vaccine which coincidentally is given at the same age in which Autistic tendencies begin to show. Correlation does not imply causation!
Her son Evan was diagnosed with Autism in 2005 which she categorically claims was caused by a vaccines. Experts have since claimed based on his symptoms that he was misdiagnosed and he actually has Landau Kleffner Syndrome. Something in which she vehemently disputes.

She has claimed on numerous talk shows that Chelation Therapy has helped her son recover from Autism?! There is no cure for Autism! It is not a disease! It is a disorder meaning an irregularity, disturbance, or interruption of normal functions.
Chelation Therapy is used for patients with metal poisoning, certain vaccines contain mercury (not the same as fish) which causes for Autism 🙄 and C.T uses drugs to bind the metals in your body so that they are expelled through your body when you pee.
C.T is dangerous and if not done correctly can result in death!
1 in 100 people in the UK have been diagnosed with Autism. If there was such a cure this would be going down and if vaccines causes autism this figure would be much higher.
C.T comes with risks of kidney damage, heart failure or even death. I’m sorry but I would rather have an Autistic child than a dead child!

Lets take a moment to discuss Dr Andrew Wakefield Andy Wakefield. In 1998 he carried out a study of 12 children to try and establish a link between the MMR vaccine and Autism and published his findings in a medical journal called The Lancet. However his findings were completely speculative and had no fact based proof to back up his results and the results he did publish were embellished. To make matters a little more convoluted Wakefield had failed to disclose that he was receiving funding from lawyers that had been engaged by parents in lawsuits against vaccine-producing companies.
It took up until 2010 for the The Lancet to publish a retraction which ended up as a small, anonymous paragraph hidden in the journal, on behalf of the editors. I suppose its like any article weather its in a local paper or a national one, online or on Youtube etc the big headline is what you remember. Not the small apology in the back.
People never read the small print. Have a loan, 0% interest free… miss a payment and we take your soul 🔥🔥🔥
Wakefield falsifying his results will forever be one of the biggest and most serious medical frauds in history. Scientists who publish their studies have an ethical responsibility to ensure the highest standards of research, data collection, data analysis, data reporting, and interpretation of findings; there can be no compromises because any error, any deceit, can result in a lot of cases with severe health implications for patients or even death.
In 2010 the British Medical Council banned Wakefield from practising medicine within the UK for repeated ethical lapses, including conducting invasive medical procedures on children that they did not need!!!
Conveniently Wakefield has also applied for a patent on a design for singular vaccines to replace the MMR one… You know because pharmaceuticals in where the money is at! 💰💰💰

I can completely understand why parents of Autistic children can easily jump on this bandwagon. I still have moments in which I blame myself for Williams Autism; Could I have done something differently? Was is that 1 puff of a cigarette before I knew I was pregnant? Was my BMI too high to have a baby? was it because I had gestational diabetes? I know it isn’t any of these things but if I could just pick one to blame in those moments I blame myself then I think I would cling on to that because ‘Its just one of those things’ doesn’t really help placate most people and sometimes not even us.

I have done a lot of reading about celebrities and their very public views on vaccinations, I have never been someone who put much thought in to what celebrities endorse and what they don’t however I know there are millions of people out there that follow their celebrities like religious idols. Even if they are the Jenny McCarthys of this world.

Whilst searching for celebrity opinions I found that Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars/Gossip Girl) had some really wise words regarding her decision to vaccinate her children published in The Huffington Post back in 2015.
‘I couldn’t rely on word of mouth, facts were my friends and it’s been proven that vaccinations work and that enough for me to make my choice and let all other mothers know it is safe, It’s important and much bigger than emotions; it’s the truth.’ 🙌

Coronation Street recently ran a great story line about the potential ramifications of not vaccinating our children which was brilliant to see played out and hopefully opened up some eyes about not only what could happen to your own child but others around them.

Anyone that knows us personally will know I am and always have been a very opinionated person and in case you haven’t clicked on just yet, I have super strong opinions about vaccinations. I completely understand if you want to put your own child at risk. Actually scratch that, No parent should ever knowingly put their child at risk!
By choosing not to vaccinate, you are not only putting your own child at risk but also those they come into contact with. You wouldn’t go and see a new born baby or elderly relative if you had the flu or a tummy bug but if you haven’t been vaccinated you could potentially be carrying something much much worse.
In 2015 there were more than 140 thousand deaths from Measles worldwide. Most of these deaths were in children under 5 years of age. Would you want your child to be on of those statistics? or be the cause of someone else child being one? I know I would never forgive myself either way.

When the vaccine for Polio was released parents queued up for hours and hours to get one for their child… I imagine it been a bit like trying to get into ASDA during this lockdown.

The president of the USA advised his stance on vaccinations during his presidential campaign (and he still won😳) he didn’t actively stand against vaccinations but advises against full doses. Advocating for smaller doses over a longer period of time.
To slightly misquote one of Greenday’s worst songs (but best albums) American idiots even swap bodily fluids with strangers to purposely get their children ill. Hello!!! HIV!!!
Now 10% of parents in the USA skip certain vaccines and 1% don’t get any at all.
Measles was once eradicated in the USA. In Minnesota more of the population in that one state has contracted measles than every other state in the USA combined. This state was heavily preyed upon by Andrew Wakefield and other Anti-Vaxx activities due the large amount of ethnic minority groups in the area. Wakefield preyed upon parents particularly within the Somali communities. Meeting privately with hundred of Somali parents and barring journalists and other medical professionals from attending. Since these meetings the rate for vaccinations within that community dropped from 92% to only 42%
In 2014-2015 a Measles outbreak infected 147 people across seven states, Mexico and Canada. High school students were sent home because of infected classmates.
One patient who was unknowingly infectious visited a hospital and exposed dozens of pregnant women and babies, including those in the neonatal intensive care unit. Another adult patient was hospitalised and on a breathing machine for three weeks.

Dr Bob Sears, famous for his dangerous views on vaccinations has been quoted saying “Vaccines don’t cause Autism except when they do”
This man who should be an ethical man. He has taken the Hippocratic Oath – I will prevent disease whenever I can, for prevention is preferable to cure.
He wrote ‘The Vaccines Book’ in which he recommend alternate Vaccination treatments and schedules despite there been no proof of this been effective. His book has brought him in a revenue of 20k a month since publication. That’s over 2 million quid!!!! He obviously has no ulterior motives… 🤑🤑🤑 Wanker 😡

Dave’s opinion – Yes he is allowed one occasionally.
I feel vaccinations are a pivotal part of our healthcare system. I understand that there is such a thing as ‘herd immunity’ which helps protect those who can not get vaccinated for legitimate health reasons. Those who have weakened immune systems are unable to get certain types of vaccine and rely on ‘the herd’ to keep them alive. However this only works if 19 out of 20 people have been vaccinated.
The ‘Wakefield’ study was proven to be falsified and the “good” doctor was disbarred however people still quote him as the pioneer that established a link between the MMR vaccine and Autism when there is in fact no link! He goes and does public speeches in America about it and spreads his lies putting more and more people at risk every single day.

There as two types of English language when it comes to scientists and doctors; the main English language and the medical English language.
‘There is no evidence of a link between vaccines and Autism”
Read into that statement as you like but one scientist trying to explain it also said
“There is no link between vaccines and humans not been able to jump off a cliff fly

I feel celebrities shouldn’t be using their influence to sway people against vaccinating their kids. Jenny McCarthy is a fucking idiot. Will she be held accountable if someone who believed her bullshit let their kid catch something and die? Is that grounds for an involuntary manslaughter charge? Would she be accountable?
I can not quote a pro-vaxxer like Marie but in my opinion everyone should be pro-vax. Why as a parent would you be against something that could save your child’s life?

Don’t get me wrong I’m the bad guy who takes William for all his injections and has to watch him become distressed and fight sand cry. We then have the delightful couple of days which he is out of sorts (aka possessed by the devil 👿) but… a couple of days is nothing in the grand scheme of things.

I would rather have a couple of bad days than no more days.
