I know that whatever I write about this movie it will make some people mad, some will think I’m an idiot, and others will nod their heads in sad agreement. The issue of vaccines is ridiculously polarizing. The hit job on this movie is completely unfounded. The complaints that I’ve taken the time to read this morning have so little bearing on the movie that I can’t help but wonder if some of the people even watched it.
There is a CDC whistleblower, Dr. William Thompson. He is willing to testify before Congress, but has not been called to do so even though he claims to have paperwork proving a CDC coverup. He contacted Brian Hooker and Hooker recorded the conversations (without Thompson’s knowledge). Hooker was able to access studies by the recommendation of Thompson. The study Thompson was a co-author on had omitted data that showed a connection between African American boys getting the MMR at a young age (under 3) and autism.
There are first hand accounts of some parents and their vaccine injured children. There are also some brave lawmakers who are willing to take on the issue.
It also explained how vaccines are tested (not like any other drug) and how injuries from vaccines are paid for (by everyone who gets a vaccine BUT NOT THE VACCINE MAKER). I honestly think that if people understood the way the vaccine court was set up they might start to look into the link between the government, pharmaceutical companies and the CDC a bit more. To date, the vaccine court/taxpayers have paid out $3 billion in vaccine damages. The pharmaceutical companies making the vaccines have paid 0.
This is worth watching.
A few notes for those that think the science is settled. I don’t think that vaccines caused my son’s autism but I know that they contributed to it. Most kids on the spectrum have bad guts (there are so many studies backing this up). What goes into their systems does not get detoxed like a child with a normal stomach. So ANYTHING that goes in will stick around doing damage when it shouldn’t.
I know two doctor moms who have kids on the spectrum. The first one I talked to about vaccines thought I was crazy. We didn’t see each other for 6 months. When I saw her again the first thing she did was walk up to me and give me a hug and thank me for telling her about vaccines. She had spent the months I hadn’t seen her doing her own research and talking to researchers who told her that ‘among them they know vaccines can cause autism’. I’m not here to say if that’s true, just sharing the story.
The second mom, a family doctor in her own country, asks me all kinds of diet questions and I spend a lot of time sharing information. One week while we were waiting for our kids to finish a play date she told me that the more she learns the more she is convinced there is a connection between autism and vaccines. She told me not realizing she was preaching to the choir.
I tell you this not to change your mind but to open it to the possibility that not everyone who is skeptical of the safety of vaccines is uneducated or grasping at straws. This movie may not change your mind, but it is worth watching.
