Sep 17, 2017 Hello everybody, this thread is about all things knowledge in relation to our health, the medical industry, drugs (all kinds), common health practices, governmental regulations, and pharmaceutical.. I'd like to begin with something I was beginning to discuss in another thread until I was threatened a ban. I apologize profusely to all vaginas beforehand, if this information rattles you or exposes you to uncomfortable truths. Some minds will reject it. Other minds will reason and consider things. One is wise, and one is blind. VACCINE SAFETY AND THE LINK BETWEEN MMR (thimerosol™/mercury containing) AND AUTISM RATES. Ex.1: Autism Rates in California Jumped As Much As 17% among Kindergarteners Since Mandatory Vaccine Bill Signed "Looking at the nationwide data shown above, many doctors are predicting that the autism rates will keep rising. But the CDC refuses to research the potential link to vaccine additives, even after we saw (at least those of us that read alternative media sources, that is) a senior CDC scientist, Dr. William Thompson, admit that the CDC purposefully omitted important results from at least one study." "In 2016 the rates of autism in California public schools jumped 7% in general, but rose especially high for kindergarten kids – by 17%. As the Sacramento Bee reported, the number of kids diagnosed as autistic has risen seven-fold since 2001."

There were several major concerns among scientists and consumer advocates outside the CDC in the fall of 2000 regarding in the execution of the Verstraeten et al (2003) study1. The Verstraeten Study was the first study the CDC carried out to examine the association between thimerosal and neurodevelopmental outcomes including autism. Some of the major concerns included 1) many of the statistical analyses were carried out post-hoc after an initial set of analyses were run, 2) the study protocol evolved over time, and 3) the CDC did not share many of the internal study findings with individuals and constituents outside the CDC. Ex. 3 New research published in the International Journal of Toxicology (IJT) by Gary S. Goldman, Ph.D., reveals high rates of shingles (herpes zoster) in Americans since the government's 1995 recommendation that all children receive chicken pox vaccine. https://www.news-medical.net/news/2005/09/01/12896.aspx Ex. 4: Merck Admits Shingles Vaccine Can Cause Eye Damage… and Shingles http://www.thevaccinereaction.org/2...es-vaccine-can-cause-eye-damage-and-shingles/ Insignificant Effectiveness of Zostavax According to the authors of a Health Sciences Institute (HSI) article in January, 2016, “UCLA researchers found that only one in 175 people who get the vaccine will be able to dodge a shingles flare-up.” While Merck claims Zostavax is 50 percent effective, in the placebo group, 3.3 percent of the study participants developed shingles, compared to 1.6 percent in the vaccine group. So, while that is a 50 percent difference, the real, absolute risk reduction is just 1.7 percentage points.
