also, I just discovered Heritage Radio Network. You can listen to radio shows hosted by Severine von Tscharner Fleming on Greenhorn Radio. Sweet!

Jamie recorded this video about a week ago in our backyard
we wandered past the sandbank
barefooted and now nude in thought
allowing only the overcast atmosphere
entrance through the holes in our skin
such humidity hung down low
like vine-ripened bosom
sinking lower and lower
each passing second towards
where it will sink even farther---
into the crust of our planet
into the crust of our planet

With all the hype going around about "swine flu" and the plans set into action to make an appropriate vaccine for this upcoming autumn, I feel it's necessary to share some information about the dangers of vaccinations. Thimerosal (a mercury containing preservative) and aluminum are ingredients found in most vaccinations. Many people believe that mercury has been removed from vaccinations entirely. Think again. The FDA website says, "Thimerosal has been removed from or reduced to trace amounts in all vaccines routinely recommended for children 6 years of age and younger, with the exception of inactivated influenza vaccine (see Table 1)." According to excerpts of a study found here:
"Our studies... provide evidence that mercury, heavy metals and the vaccine preservative thimerosal potently interfere with [methioninesynthase] activation and impair folate-dependent methylation. In vitro, mercury and thimerosal in levels found several days after vaccination inhibitmethionine synthetase (MS) by 50%. Normal function of MS is crucial in biochemical steps necessary for brain development, attention and production of glutathione, an important antioxidative and detoxifying agent. Repetitive doses of thimerosal leads to neurobehavioral deteriorations in autoimmune susceptible mice, increased oxidative stress and decreased intracellular levels of glutathione in vitro. Subsequent to vaccination, autistic children have significantly decreased level of reduced glutathione. Since each of these agents has been linked to developmental disorders, our findings suggest that impaired methylation, particularly impaired
DNAmethylation in response to growth factors, may be an important molecular mechanism leading to developmental disorders."
The truth is, as Bernard Windham writes:
" the largest increase in neurological and immune conditions has been in infants, with an increase in autism cases to over 50o,000, an over 900% increase to a level of approx. 1 per 500 infants in the last decade, making it the third most chronic childhood condition."Sallie Bernard, Albert Enayati, Teresa Binstock, Heidi Roger, Lyn Redwood, and Woody McGinnis collaboratively wrote a paper called Autism: A Unique type of Mercury Poisoning. In it, they compare the characteristics of mercury poisoning to the telltale symptoms of autism. Strikingly similar.
It's clear that mercury and aluminum exposure in vaccines are not the only causes of the increases of autism, ADD, and other developmental and immune disorders. There are studies that provide evidence that rates of autism increase in children with mothers who have dental amalgams (they contain mercury). Pregnant women are actually encouraged to receive flu shots (most contain thimerosal). If you are interested in learning more, please watch this lecture by David Ayoub, M.D., entitled Mercury, Autism, and the Global Vaccine Agenda. Eye opening facts.
Now for a bit about the HPV vaccine... The one that supposedly prevents the Human Papillomavirus. It is marketed under names like Gardasil and Cervarix. A full report on the dangers and lies behind the HPV vaccines is found here. It even displays copies of an FDA document (which has suspiciously been removed from the FDA website). This is a report about more than 1,300 girls in the UK who had "negative reactions" to the Cervarix vaccine. The New England Journal of Medicine and The Journal of the Norwegian Medical Association both suggest that we don't know enough about this vaccine to say that it prevents cervical cancer. Both Gardasil and Cervarix were only tested for about 6.5 years. It takes much longer for HPV to have any cancerous development in a woman's body. So how can we possibly "know" that it prevents cervical cancer?
In a document that compares the number of reported reactions from Gardasil and Menactra (the meningococcal vaccine), it is apparent that the risks of the HPV vaccine are far greater. Compared to six deaths associated with Menactra, 29 girls died after receiving Gardasil injections. Twenty-six girls experienced paralysis after Menactra, while 70 did after Gardasil. The list goes on and on. Most Americans consider Menactra to be safe... after reading this information, I would hope they'd think twice. But on the issue of the HPV vaccine, knowing that it is at least twice as likely to develop a negative reaction, why would anyone in their right mind vaccinate his or her daughter with it? We just don't know enough (and this is putting mercury, aluminum, and other proven toxins in vaccines aside.)
Recently, I gave my manager at work print-outs of many of the documents I have links to in this post, particularly the ones pertaining to the HPV vaccine. He is the father of two adolescent girls, and had mentioned consideration of vaccinating them for HPV. After reading through these reports, he and his wife made the decision to pass on Gardasil. A few weeks later, one of his daughters came home from school and asked for the papers I had given her father. Her teacher had begun speaking of the benefits of the HPV vaccine. "All of you girls should be vaccinated, no question about it..." I can imagine her chanting.
The girl returned to school the next day, documents in hand, and politely suggested that there may be more harm involved with the said vaccination than what was being revealed. The teacher shunned her. (Remember, conformity is something highly advocated in the public school system. We want to raise "little citizens" not revolutionists.) So the girl showed her classmates during lunch. And they had a remarkable realization. "This could be us." That's all it took. The girl gave her friends the links to the websites, who in turn showed their parents, who will now hopefully refuse to let their daughters be injected with a substance that can cause so much harm and has little proof of its effectiveness. Bravo!
So that's that. Spread the information. Create an intellectual revolution, my friends!
