I'd like to introduce myself to you as LIVING PROOF that "70 is the new 50!"

CDC Manipulates the Research
Several years later, Dr. Verstraeten published the results of his study in the journal Pediatrics. But the vaccine science had been corrupted. The published paper said just the opposite of the original study reported at Simpsonwood. In the published paper the original well-documented connection between vaccines and autism and ADD disappeared. Why? Because Dr. Verstraeten changed the methodology of the study. He manipulated the parameters of the trial in such a way that the numbers changed. But that wasn't the only thing that had changed. After the Simpsonwood conference Dr. Verstraeten took a job with vaccine manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline in Belgium. His research was now repackaged.
The final formally published study claimed that in no analyses were any risks for autism and ADD found. This was not true! Because in the preliminary study there was a documented link between autism, ADD, and vaccines—and a strong link at that. What's more, just a few years later, Dr. Julie Gerberding, the head of CDC at the time, admitted the study's methodology as published was flawed and the results as published were not reliable.
Do you think the fact Dr. Verstraeten had started working for GlaxoSmithKline had something to do with the change in the study findings? We can only wonder.
It is well known that there's a revolving door between the drug companies, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the CDC. Drug company executives frequently leave their jobs in the pharmaceutical industry to work for a while at the FDA or CDC and when their time there is done, they know they have a nice cushy job waiting back at one of the drug companies. For example, after leaving the CDC, Dr. Gerberding became director of Merck’s vaccine division.
This pattern is an ever present and corrupt way of running our government that has to be stopped if there's any hope of saving our children and grandchildren. We can’t know what is in the mind of any individual but greed is a powerful and blinding force.

Immediately after Simpsonwood, the CDC refused to order that thimerosal be removed from vaccines. Even though there was strong evidence thimerosal caused harm, it took another year to remove it from most routinely recommended childhood vaccines in the United States. But even today thimerosal is not completely gone from all vaccines. This is because the FDA only requires that thimerosal be listed on a vaccine label if it's used as a preservative. However, if thimerosal is used in the manufacturing process but it's not used as a preservative, the vaccine can be labeled “thimerosal-free,” when in reality this isn't true.
Manufacturing residues of thimerosal are found in the DTaP vaccine for diphtheria, tetanus, and whooping cough, given to children younger than age seven. Thimerosal also is used in the multi-dose vials of the Meningococcal vaccine and the flu vaccine as a preservative. Plus, many vaccines use aluminum, which studies show to be toxic (more on this later.)
CDC'S Manipulation of Data Continues Even Today
The CDC has continued to try to suppress research showing vaccines are linked to autism. Last year, whistleblower William W. Thompson, PhD, a 16-year veteran at the CDC who worked as an epidemiologist at the CDC's National Center of Birth Defects and Development Disabilities, acknowledged that high-up officials at the CDC pressured him and his fellow researchers to skew the results of a study investigating the safety of the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine. This study, published in the journal Pediatrics in 2004, found “no significant associations” between the age at which the MMR vaccine is administered and the incidence of autism. However, Dr. Thompson acknowledged that he manipulated the study results by reducing the study’s sample size by 41%.
Dr. Brian Hooker obtained the raw data from the study through the Freedom of Information Act. He reanalyzed the data and found that African American boys who received the vaccine on schedule at 24 months of age had a 340% higher incidence of autism. Dr. Hooker published his results in the peer-reviewed journal Translational Neurodegeneration, but the editors later retracted Hooker's article. The publication's reasoning for retracting the paper did not meet the justifications for retracting a paper as specified in their own retraction guidelines. There's little doubt in my mind that the editors withdrew that paper because either the CDC or the pharmaceutical companies pressured them to do it.
Anyone Who Tells You There's No Science to Show That Vaccines are Harmful Is Either Ill-Informed, Lying, or Misled By the Government.
The CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics have tried to justify using thimerosal in vaccines because it's a type of mercury called ethylmercury. The CDC and AAP have claimed that ethylmercury, unlike methylmercury (the kind of mercury found in seafood) isn't toxic. This ridiculous claim goes against study after study documenting the toxicity of ethylmercury. Both cell culture and animal studies have shown that thimerosal/ethylmercury at concentrations found in vaccines can damage brain cells and can cause other harmful effects—including many that mirror those seen in autism.
Several other studies found a strong relationship between mercury exposure from routinely administered thimerosal-containing vaccines and an increased risk for autism and other neurodevelopmental problems.
Despite all the evidence I've presented above and all the other studies I don't have room to talk about in this article, the AAP continues to claim, "Overwhelmingly, the evidence collected over the past 15 years has failed to yield any evidence of significant harm, including serious neurodevelopmental disorders, from use of thimerosal in vaccines."
This is a crime against humanity! And it's a lie since there's plenty of evidence to suggest parents everywhere should be very concerned about exposing their children to the ingredients in vaccines. ____________________________________________
Research Shows Aluminum Is Just As Toxic
Even if thimerosal is taken out of the equation, that's not the only toxic substance that doctors are injecting into children when they administer a vaccine. There's also aluminum, which is used as an adjuvant in many vaccines in order to stimulate an enhanced response and to make the vaccine more effective. Vaccinated children are exposed to as many as 18 different vaccines that contain aluminum. In the United States, aluminum is present in vaccines such as hepatitis A, hepatitis B, diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis, Haemophilus influenzae type b, human papillomavirus (HPV), and pneumococcus infection.
There's a lot of evidence to show aluminum is linked to autism. One group of Canadian researchers found a significant connection between increasing rates of autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) and exposure to aluminum adjuvants in pediatric vaccines. The connection they found was dose dependent: the more vaccines the children were exposed to the greater the risk. In addition, they found that children from countries with the highest autism rates have the highest exposure to aluminum from vaccines.
Even more importantly, the researchers found that there wasn't just an association between being vaccinated and developing autism—there was strong evidence that vaccines with aluminum in them actually caused the autism to develop.
These same researchers injected high and low doses of aluminum hydroxide into mice not long after the animals were born. The aluminum adjuvant levels in the injections matched the levels of aluminum in either United States or Scandinavian pediatric vaccine schedules. The researchers compared the effects in the aluminum-injected mice with the effects in control mice injected with saline. The results? Aluminum injections, especially at the higher dose, caused changes in the central nervous system of the mice that are similar to those that occur with autism.
One researcher, in a review of the medical literature, even pointed out that because thimerosal and aluminum—both shown to be toxic in studies using each compound alone—could act together to cause even more damage than when they're used alone.
Why Children Who Have Never Been Vaccinated Can Get Autism
People ask, if vaccines cause autism, why is it that some children who have never been vaccinated get autism? The answer is because vaccines aren't the only cause of autism—but they're often the tipping point. Mothers of autistic children could have been exposed to mercury while their children were in the womb. They could have eaten mercury-contaminated seafood. They could have dental amalgams that leached mercury. Coal-burning power plants and forest fires also dump mercury into the environment. Then there's aluminum. Pregnant women are exposed to aluminum through deodorants, aluminum cans, aluminum foil, and even some antacids.
How GM Foods Contribute to Autism
And the problem stretches beyond mercury and aluminum. We have created the perfect storm by introducing genetically modified (GM) foods into our environment. GM foods are sprayed with a toxic herbicide called glyphosate found in Monsanto's Roundup® and other products.
Stephanie Seneff, PhD, an MIT scientist that has published more than 170 peer-reviewed articles in medical journals, has conducted research that provides strong evidence that genetically modified organisms (GMOs) contribute to the increase in autism. Dr. Seneff points out that the side effects of autism closely resemble those of toxicity caused by glyphosate. Dr. Seneff has gathered data that show a remarkably strong association between the use of glyphosate on GM crops and the rise in autism rates.
Dr. Seneff has explained exactly how and why GM foods contribute to autism. The MMR vaccine is one of the few vaccines that contain glutamate, which is toxic to children who are predisposed to autism because they have low levels of manganese to counteract glutamate's effects. Dr. Seneff has evidence to show that glyphosate interferes with manganese absorption, which makes it easier for the glutamate to get into the brains of children predisposed to autism by weakening the brain barrier that would normally keep glutamate out.
Dr. Seneff compared the effects of the MMR vaccine on children before glyphosate was so widely used in the environment in 2002. Then she looked at children's reactions to the vaccine after 2002. She found that MMR vaccine exposure could predict whether a child would develop autism after 2002 but not before, indicating that glyphosate could be enhancing the toxicity of the MMR vaccine.
To find out more about how genetically modified foods contribute to autism, watch an interview with Dr. Seneff here.
The same is true, Dr. Seneff says, for aluminum-containing vaccines such as Gardasil®, the vaccine for the human papilloma virus. There are papers in medical journals to show glyphosate has the same effect on aluminum, allowing it to pass through the brain barrier even more effectively and making aluminum-containing vaccines even more toxic.
Doctors and the Mainstream Media Aren't Doing Their Research
Many doctors and the mainstream media are all parroting each other when they talk about vaccines. These people are lazy. They haven't done their work. All they have to do is go to the free online storage house of medical journal abstracts and articles called PubMed. There they would see all the research showing how ingredients used in vaccines are toxic. Doctors use this database all the time to access medical journals. So why haven't they done their research with vaccines? Maybe they don't really want to know.
Again, have you ever heard a pediatrician demanding to know what causes autism? Probably not. Instead, they echo what the CDC is saying without looking any further because….well, maybe they don't want to rock the boat.
As I mentioned earlier, doctors don't want to draw attention from their state medical boards or the FDA. Government agencies use this fear to keep doctors in line and to prevent them from telling you the truth.
The mainstream media is just as lazy. They're simply parroting what mainstream doctors say—doctors who haven't bothered to look at the research on vaccines. And the mainstream media presents information from biased sources. Take for example The Wall Street Journal, who published an article in September 2014 that praised the safety of vaccines. Guess who wrote the article? Dr. Paul Offit, the inventor of the rotavirus vaccine RotaTeq, a vaccine that the CDC recommends for universal use among infants. Do you think Dr. Offit stands to profit by authoring an article about vaccine safety? Yet, The Wall Street Journal never disclosed that the author of the article had a major conflict of interest—even after they received more than 1,600 letters questioning the publication's journalistic ethics.
Drug companies are major advertisers on television and in newspapers and magazines. Do you think a media outlet that is receiving countless dollars from drug company advertisers is going to be objective? Why would they report the truth about vaccines when it might cause the pharmaceutical companies to withdraw their advertising.
It doesn't matter whether the media outlet is liberal or conservative. All mainstream media is lazy. Because the information you have read in this article came from independent sources available on the Internet—whether it is the CDC Simpsonwood report released through the Freedom of Information Act or the research that shows the ingredients in vaccines are toxic or countless other pieces of proof against the dangers of vaccines. It's all there online! But the media doesn't do the independent research that's necessary. All the media owners need to do is run some Google searches, which we have now done for you.
Feel free to run your own searches. We can't provide you with all the proof in one article. We want you to verify what we're saying by clicking on the links in this article and by doing your own research. We're not telling you something you can't find out yourself.
It's NOT a myth that vaccines are harmful. The myth is that vaccines are safe.. If the media did their research they would know the CDC is hiding the truth.
Don't Let Other Parents Make You Feel Guilty
Some parents who vaccinate their children accuse parents who don't of exposing their vaccinated child to measles and other diseases. That's because public health officials have often unjustly blamed the current increase in measles cases on unvaccinated children. This belief that children who don't get vaccinated are responsible for measles outbreaks is a myth.
The truth is that in 2012, 95% of children entering kindergarten and 90% of high school students had gotten two MMR shots. If that many kids are getting vaccinated with a vaccine that's supposed to be effective, why the increase in measles cases? China has a mandatory measles vaccination policy. So 99% of the people there are vaccinated. Yet, that country suffered more than 700 measles outbreaks between 2009 and 2012.
The reality is that like other viruses, measles has a cyclical pattern—its occurrence rises and falls over time. In addition, being vaccinated against measles—even after two doses—is no guarantee that you won't get the disease.
Using Homeopathy and Electrodermal Screening to Protect Against the Toxic Effects of Vaccines
If you or your child is forced to receive a conventional vaccination there are two ways you can protect against any potential side effects. There are also homeopathic vaccines available. Read more here.
It's All About Greed
We're being poisoned and the government isn't doing anything about it. President Roosevelt created the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to protect the people of this country. Lincoln created the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Nixon created the EPA for the same reason. Our government has become so corrupt that these same agencies that were created to protect you are now protecting industry instead. They care more about the fiscal health of the pharmaceutical industry and companies like Monsanto than they do about our kids' health.
The heads of these agencies are appointed by the President. And here's where the corruption starts. It's presidential. It's not Democrat or Republican. It starts with the President, whatever his party, because the appointment process itself is controlled by money interests. Politicians take money from the drug companies and companies like Monsanto to help finance their campaign. Those politicians feel compelled to do the bidding of the companies that helped get them elected.
I've already mentioned the revolving door between the FDA, CDC, and drug companies and how employees in the pharmaceutical or GM industry typically leave their jobs to work at the FDA. They can expect to have a cushy job waiting for them back in the industry once they leave their job at the FDA.
It's the same with the people who run these agencies. The President is the one responsible for appointing them—and usually chooses people who have ties to the drug companies or companies that genetically modify food such as Monsanto. This is a huge conflict of interest. It's like putting the fox in charge of the chicken coop. By doing this, they're robbing your health, and that of your kids.

Save Your Life And That Of Your Loved Ones
In reading this article and clicking on the links—and please do click on them if you doubt what I'm reporting—you will probably know far more than your doctor does because you'll be on the inside of the CDC's secrets. You will have seen a lot of the research showing you why you should be concerned about the ingredients in vaccines.
There's no way our civilization can survive with autism increasing at its current rate. As it is now, individually and as a country, we can't afford to pay for all the medical costs, not only for autism but cancer, diabetes, and all the other chronic diseases that afflict us. That's why I'm urging you to start a health revolution by taking the action steps below.
The bottom line: We must take money out of politics. Until we do there's no way of stopping us from following the same doomed road that the ancient Romans followed to extinction.
Take Action Now! Stop The Drug Companies and The Government From Hurting Any More Children
It's time to start a health revolution. It's time to take our government back from the greedy corporations. It's time to protect our children and loved ones against the toxic effects of vaccines.
Here's what you can do. . .
My friend, Burton Goldberg (no relation other than the Adam and Eve one that we all share), is widely known as the “voice of alternative medicine.” In a recent Musings, I published material he had written on cancer. Subsequently, he asked me to post the article he wrote on vaccines. I was hesitant at first because I was in a cancer-groove, and wanted to continue my exploration of cancer treatments.
Cancer has touched my life in significant and painful ways; I lost both my mother and sister to cancer. I have seen, in my lifetime, the cancer rate grow from dismal to dire. When my mother was first diagnosed, 45 years ago, she was the only person we knew who was struggling with the disease. It was because of her, and her doggedness and commitment to staying alive, that I became interested in holistic health. It was she—and her remarkable journey of healing, wherein she reversed her terminal diagnosis of breast cancer (metastasized into bone cancer), moved out of her wheelchair to playing tennis again—that made me a convert to the holistic approach to healing all disease. (Side note: After my father died—killed by modern medicine—my mother simply lost her will to live, and her cancer came roaring back. As a psychoanalyst, I understand the deep connection between thoughts and feelings and the body.)
As I thought more about Burton’s request, I realized that cancer and vaccines are closely aligned. Although one is a disease, and the other a treatment, nevertheless they share certain properties. They are both embraced by orthodox medicine; they are both heavy money makers; they both cause bodily harm, even death.
I was born in 1946, and grew up in New Orleans. I still see the scar on the inside of my ankle where I was injected repeatedly with the smallpox vaccination. And I still have vivid memory of being handed a sugar cube, and told that it would protect me from getting polio. All the children, in New Orleans and all over the country, were given the polio vaccine. What I didn't know at the time was the sordid history of the polio vaccine, and its connection to New Orleans.
When I was growing up, Alton Ochsner was a household name for all New Orleanians. The Ochsner Clinic that he founded was one of the most prestigious medical centers in the country. Ochsner himself was, among other distinctions, a president of the America Cancer Society for his dedication in promoting the notion that smoking causes cancer. There was no man who was more well-respected in New Orleans that Alton Ochsner (in spite of his right-wing political fervor).
In the early 1950’s, polio had become a serious health issue in all of America. During that time, 33,000 Americans a year contracted polio, and medical research was scrambling to find a solution. It appeared that a significant step forward was taken when researchers found they could use the kidneys of rhesus monkeys as the culture for growing a vaccine. In 1955, Jonas Salk developed a polio vaccine, and immediately five laboratories started making the vaccine.
Shortly before the vaccine was due to be released to the public, it was sent to Dr. Bernice Eddy at NIH to safe-test. Her finding was shocking; she found that the vaccine itself could cause paralysis. (This connection between a vaccine causing the very disease it is meant to prevent is not so unusual. La Casa had as a client for many years a Lyme patient who contracted Lyme Disease from a Lyme vaccine she was given in Germany.)
Ochsner had holdings in one of the laboratories producing the vaccine, and refused to believe that the vaccine was dangerous. In a display of deliberate and unsurpassed arrogance, he inoculated his own grandchildren to demonstrate the safety of the vaccine. Both of his grandchildren contracted polio. His granddaughter recovered from her paralysis but tragically, his grandson died.
In spite of clear indications of the dangers of the vaccine, medical science ignored the evidence, and heralded perhaps the biggest medical fiasco to date. Dr. Eddy quietly continued her research. In 1963, she announced her next findings, which were much more dire than her previous research. She confirmed that both the original Salk vaccine, and the Sabin vaccine that followed, were contaminated with a cancer-causing virus. Both Salk and Sabin initially resisted the idea of telling the American public about these findings. But to Salk's credit, finally, in 1976, he testified that his vaccine was the "principal if not sole cause" of all polio cases in the US. The vaccine continued to be distributed until 2000.
For nine years, from 1954 to 1963, almost every dose of polio vaccine administered throughout the world—whether through inoculations, or orally the sugar cube—was contaminated with a cancer-causing simian virus, named SV40. Recipients of the tainted vaccine included half of the American population.
Eddy predicted that it would take thirty years for the cancers to develop. Statistics, unfortunately proved her prediction to be accurate. Beginning in 1985 (1955+30), cancers of five of the body's soft tissues—the skin, breast, prostate, lymphoma and lung—began a dramatic increase. Should we assume coincidence, or prescience of the good doc, Bernice Eddy? In 2001, resercher Neil Miller reported on 62 peer-reviewed studies confirming the presence of SV40 in a variety of human tissues and carcinomas*.
Because of the imminent threat of forced vaccinations, I have decided to give Burton, once again, the forum of Musings to let my readers know his well-researched thoughts on the subject.
First, a few factoids dispelling myths about vaccines:
And now, to give Burton Goldberg his voice.
Should You Vaccinate Your Child?
Read The Once-Secret Documents Of The CDC, And Then You Decide!
By Burton Goldberg, "The Voice of Alternative Medicine"
They're not telling us all that they know, mainly what the research actually says. And you, your children, and your loved ones are the victims. Read the actual research and what becomes clear is VACCINES ARE NOT SAFE! The CDC has to know this. Yet, they're trying to make you believe that if you don't vaccinate your child you're endangering the health of other children. But nothing could be farther from the truth. All the science conducted by independent researchers shows that vaccines can harm your children and grandchildren. This is not some conspiracy theory; it's scientific fact.
What's worse is that we now have the perfect storm. When a child is exposed to vaccines and also eats food that contains the pesticide glyphosate—the toxic chemical used in Roundup® and on genetically modified (GM) foods—that child's risk for health problems, including autism, is amplified. I'll talk more about this connection later in this article and share with you the research of Stephanie Seneff, PhD, a respected MIT scientist who has discovered exactly how GM foods contribute to autism.
In 1950, autism was unheard of and by 1970 only 1 in 10,000 U.S. children were afflicted with autism. Right now 1 in 42 boys develop autism. And 1 in 68 children (including girls) suffer from the condition. Dr. Seneff predicted that by 2025, half of all children will be autistic if trends and current practice continue. Half! Yet we still don't hear the pediatricians demanding to know what causes autism.
Most doctors won't tell you the truth about vaccines. Either they don’t read all the research or they know what the research shows but are afraid of losing their license—and I don't blame them. After all, doctors are busy. It’s faster and professionally safer for them to rely on “medical industry standards.” If they contradict the official line, they risk their livelihoods, and, at the very least look like outsiders in the eyes of their peers.
Perhaps they're afraid of going to jail or being put out of business by our government or the medical boards, which are controlled by corporations that profit from your illnesses.
The result? Your health is paying the price of many doctors' lack of due diligence and lack of courage. Your kids are getting autism. You and your family members are suffering from supposedly incurable diseases that could be cured or prevented, if not for corporate greed and government corruption.
Because of this corruption, we're going the way of ancient Roman citizens, who accidentally poisoned themselves by drinking water from lead pipes or wine from lead-lined vessels. We're headed the way of Rome—unless you take action.
I can tell you the truth because I'm not a medical practitioner with any economic stake in this issue. In other words, I have nothing to fear. More importantly, I have studied alternative medicine for 45 years, have an honorary doctorate in humanities from Capital University, and through my publications and public appearances over many years I have become known as "The Voice of Alternative Medicine." I'm also 88 years old. I’m not worried about myself. I'm worried about the future of my kids, grandkids, and great grandkids—and beyond. That’s why I’m still doing this. That’s why I’ve reviewed all the research. And to relieve any suspicions you might have about why I'm doing this, let me assure you again I have no financial interest in what happens.
In this article, I'm going to give you the proof that most vaccines are toxic. And throughout the course of this series of articles, I'm going to show you why, for the sake of our kids and loved ones we need to start a health revolution. Just as in the time of Thomas Paine during the American Revolution, we have reached another American Crisis. This time, we don't need to break free from England's rule. We need to break free from the greed and corruption that has tainted our government and the health care industry. And I'm going to show you how to do exactly that.
It's time to take a stand, before it's too late. It's time to understand that agencies of the government like the FDA and the CDC care more about the bottom line of corporations than they do about whether your kids get autism.
It's a Lie That Vaccines are Perfectly Safe and Don't Cause Autism and ADHD—and I'm Going to Prove It To You.
In 1999, a researcher by the name of Dr. Thomas Verstraeten, who at the time was working at the National Immunization Program of the CDC, released the results of a study where he analyzed data from the Vaccine Safety Datalink in order to find out whether thimerosal, a type of mercury then used as a preservative in most vaccines, caused neurodevelopmental disorders like autism.
The results of Dr. Verstraeten's study were alarming. Kids exposed to vaccines were 660% more likely to develop autism and 700% more likely to develop attention-deficit disorder (ADD) compared to kids who had not received vaccines.
These results shouldn't have come as a surprise to anyone. After all, as Congressman Dan Burton pointed out in a video I released called "Greed," the insert that came with Eli Lilly's vaccines warned that side effects of exposure could include mild to severe mental retardation and mild to severe motor coordination impairment. Sounds a lot like the symptoms of autism doesn't it? (You'll find the link and password to my Greed video later in this article).
The following year, on June 7-8, 2000, Dr. Verstraeten presented his findings at a now infamous conference at Simpsonwood Retreat Center in Georgia. There were 51 scientists and doctors at the conference, including five representatives from vaccine manufacturers such as Merck and Smith Kline Beecham.
The CDC wanted this conference to remain secret. It was closed to the public and the media. It wasn't until 2004, after some parents and Russell Blaylock, M.D., a board certified neurosurgeon, filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit to get their hands on the transcript of the Simpsonwood meeting that the public was allowed to know what was talked about at the two-day event.
In the words of Dr. Blaylock, the document showing what went on at Simpsonwood "should blow the lid off the cover-up being engineered by the pharmaceutical companies in conjunction with powerful government agencies."
After reading the report twice and carefully analyzing it, Dr. Blaylock noted, "I can see why they didn't want any outsiders to see it. It is a bombshell."
Download Dr. Blaylock's full exposé of the Simpsonwood conference here. His summary of the conference is a good place to start since the transcript is 238 pages.
As Dr. Blaylock noted in his exposé of Simpsonwood, after Dr. Verstraeten presented his findings, everyone at the meeting was concerned. But they didn't seem concerned about the damage the vaccines caused to the children.
David Kirby, journalist, author, and New York Times contributor offered this account of what happened: "There was consensus at the meeting that this data meant something. There was an absolute acknowledgement that something was going on that needed more research, that this information needed to be managed very, very carefully. Their biggest concern was not possible damage being inflicted on American children and children overseas but the immunization program, the fiscal health of the pharmaceutical industry, the personal reputations of the people in question, and spending years of time and billions of dollars defending against litigation. One of the quotes was 'wait until the lawyers get a hold of this.'"
For example, a representative of the World Health Organization, John Clements, seemed to care more about the scientific research getting in the way of vaccinating children than he did about health risks to vaccinated children that the research revealed.
Clements said at Simpsonwood, "But there is now the point at which the research results have to be handled, and even if this committee decides that there is no association and that information gets out, the work has been done and through the freedom of information that will be taken by others and will be used in other ways beyond the control of this group. And I am very concerned about that as I suspect that it is already too late to do anything regardless of any professional body and what they say…My mandate as I sit here in this group is to make sure at the end of the day that 100,000,000 are immunized with DTP, Hepatitis B and if possible Hib, this year, next year and for many years to come, and that will have to be with thimerosal containing vaccines unless a miracle occurs and an alternative is found quickly and is tried and found to be safe."
Read Dr. Blaylock's exposé and you can decide for yourself whose interests they were protecting. And the Simpsonwood transcript itself will show you why many of the experts attending Simpsonwood weren't willing to put their own children at risk.
For example, one of the doctors attending the conference, Robert Johnson, M.D., an immunologist at the University of Colorado, told conference attendees, "Forgive the personal comment, but I got called out at eight o'clock for an emergency call and my daughter-in-law delivered a son by C-section. Our first male in the line of the next generation and I do not want that grandson to get a Thimerosal containing vaccine until we know better what is going on. It will probably take a long time. In the meantime, and I know there are probably implications for this internationally, but in the meanwhile I think I want that grandson to only be given Thimerosal-free vaccines."
Read the full transcript of the Simpsonwood meeting here. It will open up your eyes to how the CDC and other public health officials put the health and reputations of the drug companies over your child's health.
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. wrote an excellent article originally published in Rolling Stone in which he discussed Simpsonwood and questioned the safety of thimerosal. I highly recommend you read it here.
(This article originally appeared in The Epoch Times.)
Some years back, I heard Bernard Jensen, one of our country’s great nutritionists and author of over 50 books, tell the story of Samson, “the Saxon Giant.”
Samson was a weight lifter and wrestler who was brought to the United States by Florenz Zeigfield in the 1920s as one of the featured acts in the “Zeigfield Follies.”
Besides his strength, Samson was also known for his baby-soft skin, a feature that Samson attributed to his daily regimen of dry skin brushing—a fact that greatly intrigued Jensen.
One year after Samson arrived stateside, so story went according to Jensen, Samson lost the world’s championship heavyweight weight-lifting contest by just 10 ounces. Jensen was able to find and examine Samson’s diaries, and found that Samson had a novel theory explaining his defeat. Samson attributed his loss to the fact that he had neglected to dry brush his skin for three weeks prior to the contest.
Jensen decided to do a little experiment of his own to see why Samson would have reached such an unusual conclusion. Jensen bought a skin brush and stood on brown wrapping paper while he brushed his own body.
After enough debris had fallen onto the paper, Jensen sent the material to a lab. The lab found a lot of dead skin, which, of course, was expected. But the lab also found dried catarrh, urea, sodium chloride, sebum, and metabolic acid wastes.
From his little experiment, Jensen came to understand that when these substances are not removed from the skin, they can become backed up in the muscle structure, and can consequently cause a loss of vitality. Jensen became a great advocate for daily dry skin brushing.
One of the most wonderful things about our bodies is that its largest organ—the skin—is on its outside. We can, and do, automatically and continuously both nourish and detoxify our bodies through the skin.
The ability of the skin to accept substances and deliver them to the bloodstream is well-known. The skin serves as a direct link to all the other organs. Contemporary physicians have revived the age-old practice of delivering medicine through the skin. Heart patients use nitroglycerin patches; cigarette smokers try to break their addiction through the use of nicotine patches.
So great, in fact, is the ability of the skin to absorb substances that one drop of essential oil placed on the fingertip will show up in hair analysis 10 minutes later.
The skin’s ability to excrete toxins, however, is not as well emphasized. In natural health circles, the skin is referred to as the body’s third lung or third kidney. It aids tremendously in throwing off all toxins from the body. We absorb more impurities, and eliminate more waste through the skin than any other organ in our bodies (including the colon).
Two pounds of waste are eliminated every day through the skin. The skin works hand in hand with the kidneys. On hot days, we do a lot of our elimination through our skin, and our kidneys don’t have to work as hard. Conversely, on cold days, our kidneys take over this function of the skin because the skin is not eliminating as much.
The body organizes itself, in part, through a continuous dance of creating new while simultaneously shedding old, and it does this process especially efficiently with skin cells.
The skin is often the first place that biological imbalance appears. When the other systems are overloaded in dealing with too many toxins, the skin is utilized as an additional organ of detoxification. Sometimes old cells can cling to the surface of the skin, trapping pathogenic microorganisms like bacteria within. As well, new cells are inhibited from breathing.
Eruptions, blemishes, odors, and colors may appear as the skin tries to do overtime in ridding the body of waste.
Toxicity can gather just beneath the skin’s surface from a variety of everyday habits. Improper pH levels can result from an accumulation of toxic body soaps, skin creams, and anti-perspirants. Even synthetic fibers worn next to the skin can contribute to the absorption of toxins into the skin.
Skin brushing is especially useful for lymphatic cleansing. Cleansing the lymphatic system is essential because the lymph glands serve as one of the body’s primary defense mechanisms. The lymphatic system cleanses out cellular debris that the bloodstream has not been able to take care of, such as viruses, bacteria, and dust.
The lymphatic system is like the circulatory system: It moves a fluid—which makes up about 80 percent of total body fluids—throughout the body. This lymphatic fluid picks up debris as it moves along its path. Normally, excess lymphatic fluid is excreted through the skin, the kidneys, and other eliminative organs.
Unlike the circulatory system, which has a pump—the heart—to keep the fluid moving, the lymphatic system has nothing to keep the fluid moving other than your own movement. When there is toxicity from improper diet or elimination, clothing worn too tightly, or not enough exercise, the lymphatic fluid gets blocked.
Improper lymphatic drainage is one of the main reasons that so many women are plagued with cellulite. The dimples that form on the thighs and buttocks are due to the accumulation of fats, proteins, and other waste products that are not being excreted from the body efficiently.
These unwanted products are usually carried out of the body by the lymphatic system. Dry skin brushing helps to kick-start the lymphatic system by stimulating the lymph canals, which helps detoxify the blood and reduces the toxic buildup that causes cellulite.
Dry skin brushing has a wide range of benefits:
Aids in diminishing cellulite
Increases cell renewal
Cleanses lymphatic system
Removes dead skin layers
Strengthens immune system
Improves exchange between cells
Stimulates the glands, thus helping all the
bodily systems to perform at peak efficiency
Jensen himself was testimony to his own theory. When he was 88, he appeared at a conference I was attending. He rolled up his shirt sleeves and pulled up his pants legs, showing us the skin on his arms and legs. There was not a single wrinkle, line, or blemish anywhere on this man’s body that we could see.
Jensen, like Samson, attributed the beauty of his skin—its tautness, smoothness, and elasticity—to his daily regimen of skin brushing.
How to Do Skin Brushing
1. Buy a natural bristle brush with a long handle (available at most health food stores).
2. Brush skin before showering or bathing, at least once per day. Do not wet your skin first, as this stretches your skin.
3. Always brush toward the heart.
4. Brush the soles of your feet first because the nerve endings there affect your whole body. Next brush your ankles, calves, and thighs.
5. Brush across your stomach and your buttocks, and lastly brush your hands to your arms. Do circular, clockwise strokes on your abdomen—going up the right side, across the belly, and then down the left side. This is the same direction of movement that waste passes through the colon.
6. Do lighter strokes over and around your breasts, and do not brush the nipples.
7. Repeat the whole process. Brush each part of your body several times vigorously.
8. Take a warm bath or shower, which should always be followed by a cool or even cold rinse at the end. One good practice is to gradually change a warm shower into a cold shower, and tolerate the cold water until your body starts to create its own internal heat to meet the challenge of the cold water. This helps renew the cells in your body.
9. Wash off your brush every few weeks in water and allow it dry completely.
