This past weekend I managed to secure ONE ticket to the Los Angeles opening of the documentary VAXXED, which is about the vaccine autism controversy. Every showing throughout the day was SOLD OUT almost a week in advance for a theater that doesn’t even take pre-seating reservations. People were actually lined up outside. Why such a hot documentary? (Watch the Official Trailer below)
If you haven’t heard about this film, it’s the one that was slated to be screened at actor Robert DeNiro’s Tribeca Film Festival last month and, due to high pressure by “powerful interests” (i.e. probably the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Vaccine Pharmaceutical manufacturers, and other government shills), DeNiro backed down and took it off the schedule. One can only imagine what they threatened him with regarding the fate of the Festival should he not comply. DeNiro said he just wanted the film out there to start an informed national discussion. He and his wife, Grace, have a son with autism and are trying to understand why, as are thousands of other parents just like them.
As could be expected, trying to stifle this controversial documentary backfired and only made it hotter. Negative publicity is like gold in the film industry. VAXXED is currently playing in New York and Los Angeles (it will even be played at the big AutismOne Conference in Chicago in May) and it will certainly spread to other cities and countries around the world. The cat is out of the bag and people now know, if they hadn’t already suspected it, that our government doesn’t always tell us the truth—especially when it’s not in their financial best interest.
Let me first start by emphasizing that VAXXED is NOT about ANTI-VACCINATION; more importantly, it’s about VACCINE SAFETY. No where in the film does anyone say the concept of vaccination is a bad thing or tell you not to get your child vaccinated. What you will hear is that something has gone terribly wrong with today’s vaccines and it’s time to ask serious questions and get truthful answers. Autism rates began skyrocketing in the late 1980’s when children, before the age of 36 months, started receiving a program of multiple vaccine shots all at once. One would think there wouldn’t be a soul out there against vaccine “safety” for kids, but apparently there are.
In 2013, biologist Dr. Brian Hooker received a call from a Senior Scientist at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) who led the agency’s 2004 study on the Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine and its link to autism.
The scientist, Dr. William Thompson, confessed that the CDC had omitted crucial data in their final report that revealed a causal relationship between the MMR vaccine and autism. Over several months, Dr. Hooker recorded the phone calls made to him by Dr. Thompson who provided the confidential data destroyed by his colleagues at the CDC.
Dr. Thompson’s analysis of the data showed that multiple vaccines given before the age of 3 years old were increasing autism by as much as 23%, especially in Afro-American males. When a “single vaccine only” program was suggested to cut the risks of multiple vaccinations, the option was quickly taken away. Thompson was told, “It will destroy our MMR program.”
Dr. Hooker enlisted the help of Dr. Andrew Wakefield, the British gastroenterologist falsely accused of starting the anti-vax movement when he first reported in 1998 that the MMR vaccine may cause autism. In his ongoing effort to advocate for children’s health, Wakefield directs this documentary examining the evidence behind an appalling cover-up committed by the government agency charged with protecting the health of American citizens.
Interviews with pharmaceutical insiders, doctors, politicians, and parents of vaccine-injured children reveal an alarming deception that has contributed to the skyrocketing increase of autism and potentially the most catastrophic epidemic of our lifetime. It’s understandable why so much effort was made to suppress this film.
What is quite disturbing to learn is that there have not been any long-term studies carried out, by the CDC or a vaccine manufacturer, using a control non-vaccine study group to analyze results against those receiving the vaccine. This is truly astounding when, as every doctor and researcher knows, the scientific community and its varied professional journals demand double-blind or control group studies for drug efficacy.
The VAXXED documentary does not explore what might have made vaccines less safe than before. It only makes one want to ask important questions that need to be known. Since those questions might open a whole other can of worms, I will attempt to shed some light on the issue…
University of Pennsylvania’s Dr. Brian Strom, who has served on Institute of Medicine panels advising the government on vaccine safety says the prevailing medical opinion is that vaccines are scientifically linked to encephalopathy (brain damage), but not “scientifically” linked to autism. (NOTE: The Zika virus is blamed on mosquitos, but many of the women, who gave birth to children with brain encephalopathy, were mandated by the Brazilian government to have multiple vaccines while pregnant. (Read More) This is important to keep in mind.
While Dr. Strom suggests they can’t prove the autism/vaccine link (others strongly disagree), let’s take a closer look at what’s happening in a child’s body when they do have autism. John Hopkin’s researchers found that these children experience acute brain inflammation from widespread activation of brain immune cells trying to fight off a toxic foreign invader. When the body wages war against itself, it is considered an autoimmune disorder. Autism falls into this category.
No one has officially determined what the actual invader is that the child’s immune system is trying to ward off leading to autism. Is it multiple vaccines that overwhelm the developing immune system at such an early age? Is it the controversial mercury preservative known as “Thimerosal” which has been put into some vaccines to protect the vaccine from degradation when refrigeration isn’t always available? Or is it something else even more insidious and disruptive?
Very few people realize that when vaccine manufacturers started removing Thimerosal from their vaccines in the late 1980’s, they began the worldwide practice of using human DNA fromaborted fetal cells. MERK lists this on their ingredient label as “recombinant human albumin.” According to a recent Environmental Protection Agency Study (EPA), in 1988 there was a sudden spike in autism disorders, which is the same year the U.S. Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices began recommending a second dose of the MMR vaccine using the human cell cultures.
The use of growing vaccines in human cell cultures has problems, says former pharmaceutical senior scientist, Helen Ratajczak. She explains that when these human cell fragments are in the presence of the disease they are grown in, both are identified by the immune system as an enemy of the body. This is immediately seen in the neurons of the brain. The body attacks the brain cells causing acute inflammation, which can continue throughout the life of the individual. Ratajczak also says an additional increased spike in autism occurred in 1995 when chicken pox vaccine was grown in human fetal tissue. Fetal cell tissue is used today in approximately 23 vaccines.
Years ago they used animal DNA tissue in vaccines, which is why many people became allergic to their pets after receiving vaccinations if cat or dog cell cultures were used. The immune system sees these cells as the enemy. The problem is that with current vaccines used from human tissue, the body will try to reject it, much like an organ transplant recipient might reject a donor organ. The long-term risks to human health of injecting infants, children and adults with human protein/DNA have never been studied.
In 1985, 1 in 2500 children had autism. Today, that figure is 1 in 250. Every seven minutes another child in the U.S. is diagnosed with autism. At this rate researchers predict that by 2032, if something is not done, 80% of boys will have autism. There are many reputable scientists who have done studies showing the link between vaccines and autism. Most all have been discredited after trying to publish their findings—like gastroenterologist, Dr. Andrew Wakefield. Anyone who has ever tried to write an article on the vaccine safety subject has been either vilified or silenced. Even the Huffington Post suppressed a review of the VAXXED documentary by a veteran writer of their newspaper.
National Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 protected vaccine manufacturers from lawsuits. We clearly need to review our vaccine safety policy. Future generations of children are counting on us.
