Anne Dachel has an update of the barrage of scare tactics and misinformation to promote vaccination. She makes an excellent point with the lack of balance, lack of facts, and failure to disclose financial incentives by those promoting vaccines.
Be sure to read the comment by Linda L. She writes of her child contracting Whooping Cough AFTER BEING GIVEN THE VACCINE. This is well known that the whooping cough vaccine does not work and many children have contracted the disease after being given the vaccine.
The first study reported in early 2013 that researchers had found the first U.S. evidence of vaccine-resistant pertussis. The same phenomenon had been observed in other countries, and research showing that pertussis was developing immunity against the current pertussis vaccine being given to children should have made headline news. But of course, it did not.
And if one is tempted to think that those who manufacture these vaccines would never keep a defective product on the market knowingly, think again. Twenty percent of all white collar corporate crime is now committed in the pharmaceutical industry, with every major vaccine manufacturer now a convicted criminal. A recent editorial written in the British Medical Journal chronicled how the fines levied against this criminal activity is not sufficient enough to prohibit the companies from continuing to act like criminals.

In the past three and a half years alone (2009 to mid-2012), criminal and civil penalties have totaled $18bn, well over half the total for the past 21 years. GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) topped the list of repeat offenders with total criminal and civil penalties of $7.56bn since 1991, comprised six different federal settlements and an additional number with states. Pfizer was the second highest with $2.96bn. Overall, since 1991, 11 other companies also had criminal or civil settlements or both exceeding $50m on at least two occasions.
It has been three and a half years since Katie received the Gardasil vaccine and she still remains chronically ill. She was unable to attend school in 7th and 8th grades. This year, Katie decided to repeat 8th grade again rather than begin high school still sick. Katie has an IEP plan in school which reduces her daily schedule to three core classes only. Unfortunately, Katie is still too sick to attend school with any regularity. Most days, a teacher comes to our home to review the lessons she missed at school. Some days, Katie’s pain levels are too high so that she can’t even tolerate home tutoring. Although she longs to get back to dancing again, she spends most days in her room sleeping or resting and trying to cope with chronic pain. At 14 years old, Katie’s life closely resembles a sick elderly person instead of an active vibrant teenager she should be.
To our utter disbelief, I came across an article reporting that the Gardasil vaccine can activate a latent Bartonella infection that was otherwise being suppressed by a properly functioning immune system prior to vaccination. We now believe our earliest suspicion was correct.
At this point, we are totally outside our insurance company and most everything is out-of-pocket. The overall expense of Katie’s illness greatly outpaces our income so many expenses are put on credit cards. But the biggest cost by far is the toll that the Gardasil vaccine has taken on our daughter’s health and well-being. We wonder if she will ever be able to reclaim her health and get back to living a normal life free of pain.
Terrible story, isn’t it?
Where’s Big Pharma now? Are they paying the Robinsons’ bills? NO! Are they going to give Katie back the years and life experiences she has lost? NO!
