Last week, I visited Denver, Colorado where Allison and I hiked the national parks and saw the beautiful sights around Denver. I also visited and spent time with my dear friend, Suzy Cohen—America’s Pharmacist. Suzy and I have been friends for many years. Suzy has written many books about natural therapies including my favorite, Drug Muggers. Three years ago, Suzy and I co-hosted the Thyroid Summit and we had a lot of fun putting it together.
During our week in Colorado, we saw Suzy and her husband Sam many times. During one visit, we were talking about our respective blogs and I stated to her,
“I am trying not to write about vaccines.”
“But you always write about vaccines, why are you trying not to write about them?” (more…)
The first peer-reviewed study comparing health outcomes of vaccinated children versus unvaccinated was recently published in the Journal of Translational Science by epidemiologists from the School of Public Health at Jackson State University. The study’s conclusions are likely to inflame the fierce debate over whether vaccines and a mercury-containing vaccine preservative may be culprits in the dramatic rise in certain neurodevelopmental disorders in our children, including autism.
The “Pilot comparative study on the health of vaccinated and unvaccinated 6- to 12-year-old U.S. children” implicates vaccines in a host of chronic illnesses now epidemic in our nation’s children. The team of scientists, led by the renowned epidemiologist Dr. Anthony Mawson, the author of more than fifty published studies, concluded that “In a final adjusted model designed to test for this possibility, controlling for the interaction of preterm birth and vaccination, the following factors remained significantly associated with NDD: vaccination (OR 2.5, 95% CI: 1.1, 5.6), nonwhite race (OR 2.4, 95% CI: 1.1, 5.4), and male gender (OR 2.3, 95% CI: 1.2, 4.4). Preterm birth itself, however, was not significantly associated with NDD, whereas the combination (interaction) of preterm birth and vaccination was associated with 6.6-fold increased odds of NDD (95% CI: 2.8, 15.5) (Table 8).” Jackson State is a leading university research center.
The study suggests that fully vaccinated children may be trading the prevention of certain acute illnesses (chicken pox, pertussis) for more chronic illnesses and neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs) like ADHD and Autism.
In order to find a large population of children who hadn’t received any vaccines, the Jackson State scientists utilized Homeschool organizations in four states and compared the incidence of a broad range of health outcomes in 666 children, 39% of whom were unvaccinated. Among the more concerning findings, vaccinated children had increased risks of autism (4.2 times), ADHD (4.2 times), learning disabilities (5.2 times) eczema (2.9 times), and an astounding 30 times the risk of allergic rhinitis compared to unvaccinated children.
As would be expected, vaccinated children did have lower likelihood of two vaccine-preventable illnesses compared to unvaccinated children: chicken pox (7.9% vs. 25.3%), and pertussis (2.5% vs. 8.4%), but the scientists found no significant differences in rates of other vaccine-preventable illnesses like hepatitis A or B, measles, mumps, rubella, influenza, meningitis or rotavirus. The study suggests that fully vaccinated children may be trading the prevention of certain acute illnesses (chicken pox, pertussis) for more chronic illnesses and neurodevelopmental disorders (NDDs) like ADHD and Autism.
Despite numerous requests over the years from parents and vaccine safety advocates for just this type of research, the CDC has failed to act. The Jackson State scientists called for more scientific studies to help explain and clarify these findings.
We have compensated cases in which children exhibited an encephalopathy, or general brain disease. Encephalopathy may be accompanied by a medical progression of an array of symptoms including autistic behavior, autism, or seizures.” (more…)
A Crohn’s disease vaccination is being developed by a researcher in Great Britain. The vaccine targets MAP, a bacteria found in 80% of Crohn’s sufferers. The vaccine aims to help stimulate the body to eliminate MAP, and thus cure those suffering with Crohn’s disease. 
While the intent of the researcher may be honorable, it is highly debatable whether another vaccination is the answer for this serious disease.
Vaccinations have in fact been blamed for causing autoimmune disorders including Crohn’s disease. It makes little sense to use a vaccine to target a disease caused by vaccines. Crohn’s disease is a progressive, life-threatening illness correlated with gut dysbiosis and inflammation of the intestines. 
Functional medicine approaches, which aim to heal the gut, offer hope for those suffering with Crohn’s disease. Conventional medicine treatments include anti-inflammatory drugs that attempt to put the disease into remission. [3, 4]
One in three people will develop shingles (herpes zoster) during their lifetime. Effective therapy is limited. Here are 8 proven ways to prevent shingles and to ease the symptoms without drugs or vaccines.
One in three people will develop shingles (herpes zoster) during their lifetime. It occurs when latent varicella-zoster (chickenpox) virus reactivates along sensory nerves to the skin. It causes a painful, blistering skin eruption that lasts for two to four weeks. But long-term effects including chronic pain can last for several months or years and seriously impair quality of life.
Far too many are still swooned by false promises from people with initials like “Dr.” and “CEO” in front of their names.
I grew up in the 1960s, inundated by commercials for margarines made from hydrogenated vegetable oils that “promised” those margarines would keep my cholesterol levels low and protect me from heart disease. Yet in 2015, nearly 50 years later, in the face of overwhelming scientific evidence of the harm they do, especially to the circulatory system and the heart, the Food and Drug Administration announced that artificial trans fats of the very sort that made up a good percentage of those margarines were no longer “generally recognized as safe,” and food manufacturers would have three years to remove these substances from their products altogether.

The pharmaceutical industry, and many doctors, appear to be making great efforts by to get as many people as possible vaccinated against shingles. Even if such an intervention was highly effective in preventing shingles, which certainly has not been shown to be the case, the information below should make it clear that such vaccinations are unnecessary. The side effects that would be suffered by a significant number of individuals need never occur in the first place. The real problem is that what is discussed below generates relatively little income for anybody in the healthcare industry. Regardless, you need to decide for yourself.
Shingles is an infection resulting from the varicella zoster virus, usually manifesting in areas supplied by spinal nerves, known as dermatomes. More commonly known in medical circles as Herpes zoster, the infection is typically characterized by a blistering skin rash of extraordinary pain for most individuals. The initial infection with the virus is usually remote from the shingles outbreak, typically occurring in childhood when chickenpox is contracted. For years the virus remains latent in nerve cell bodies or autonomic ganglia. It is when the virus, for unclear reasons, breaks out of these storage sites and travels down the nerve axons that shingles occurs.
Left to itself along with mainstream therapies that include analgesics, antiviral agents like acyclovir, and corticosteroids, the rash will generally resolve in two to four weeks. The pain is generally lessened little by analgesics. Some unfortunate individuals can experience postherpetic neuralgia, a syndrome of residual nerve pain that can continue for months or years following a shingles outbreak.
As I was walking our small dog around the apartment complex grounds where we live, I noticed a neighbor who had two small dogs now walking only one. I asked about the missing dog, my personal favorite of the two, and she told me she “had to put her down”.
I asked why, and she explained that she “had come home one day and found her paralyzed”. The vet claimed she must have climbed on something, fell, and injured her spine. I didn’t see her dachshund as much of a climber, and the dog wasn’t old, so I asked, “had she been vaccinated recently”?
Her dachshund had been vaccinated a very few days before its paralysis with the canine influenza vaccine and Bordetella (kennel cough) vaccines. She claimed she had to in order to be able to board the unfortunate dachshund whenever she traveled to visit her daughters in Colorado. Vaccinations are being required for pets, more-so for dogs than cats, more now than ever.
(NaturalNews) Medical doctors’ advice is usually taken at face value because they’ve been through at least 8 years of schooling. Their advice is backed by evidence-based science and laboratory research with proven results – those that are published as peer-reviewed, and are often cited in medical journals that doctors read to justify chemical-based prescriptions for all kinds of medical problems, including the treatment of cancer and for the prevention of infectious diseases.
But, what if you found out that many doctors in America today quote studies that don’t even exist in order to prove their “points” and justify their recommendations of toxic medications and carcinogenic inoculations?
That is exactly what is happening in America, and one of the leading shills of this atrocity is the nefarious Dr. David Gorski, a cohort of the mass murderer Dr. Farid Fata, who resided under the same roof as Gorski, at Karmanos Cancer Center in Detroit, Michigan. Fata confessed in court to administering overdoses of chemotherapy to patients who did not have cancer, and he was sentenced to 45 years in federal prison.
Is Gorski doing the same thing, while citing medical studies that don’t exist, in order to make a fortune dosing his victims with expensive, toxic chemo, while pushing vaccine propaganda online in his 20,000 word blogs under his pseudonym “Orac?”
Mercury is the most toxic non-radioactive element on earth, and chemotherapy is derived from deadly mustard gas
You gotta meet Margaret*. I changed her name to protect her privacy. She recently emailed me to vent against Western Medicine’s push to get everyone hooked on drugs and stab kids with risky, ineffective vaccines! Interestingly enough, she has seen medicine from an angle that most people aren’t privy too.
Margaret is a pharmacist. With a Pharmacy (PharmD) degree, and over two decades working in the field of pharmacy, she’s seen firsthand how “guideline-driven” medicine has artificially forced every patient into the same clinical box, thereby hooking them on drugs. The result is that “Doctors don’t THINK anymore — they just do what they’re told, which is to put people on meds. So many people in medicine (doctors, nurses, pharmacists) don’t really question anything,” says Margaret. “They’re so busy that they just do what the ‘guidelines’ say to do, rather than look at individuals and what makes sense.”
