The hidden story about vaccines, autism, drugs and food… Americas health has been BOUGHT. Your health, your family’s health. Now brought to you by Wall Street… “If you thought they hurt us with the banks, wait till you see what they’re doing to health care.” Vaccines. GMOs. Big Pharma. Three big, BIG, okay… HUGE topics in one film. Why? Why not 3 films, why put all this in one movie? Great question, 2 answers. 1st and most importantly: We need to band together. We need a mainstream film, not another radical movie that only interests the “already converted”. Over 5 million people supported Prop 37 in CA. Reportedly, over 2 million worldwide marched against Monsanto in a global protest. There...ane vaccine expansion, and our love affair with pharmaceuticals- it’s the same villain. It’s a risky story to tell, but would be a tragedy to passively consent to with silence. There is something horribly wrong with health care today. Huge money, billions and billions of dollars flowing into the same pockets. Meanwhile, MD’s aren’t being allowed to actually practice the art of medicine and anyone who questions vaccination safety, pharmaceuticals, factory farms, etc. is ridiculed and belittled. Meanwhile, the billions keep flowing, carried on a river of pain and anguish. Huge corporations funded by individual misery, one broken life at a time. Three huge stories, each worthy of multiple films, but each brought together by one staggering fact: it’s the same villain. These three story lines converge on Wall Street, in a tale of corruption, greed and shocking lack of conscience.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 17 (AP) — The Pentagon may start asking women in the military to take pregnancy tests before getting anthrax shots because a study suggests vaccinations have resulted in some having babies with birth defects.

Officials are worried that some of the study's data may be faulty and have ordered a review, Lt. Mike Kafka of the Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery said today.

But because the review could take months, the Defense Department's top health official is asking each military service to develop a plan in two weeks to assure that pregnant women in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines do not get the immunizations in the meantime.

That official, Dr. William Winkenwerder Jr., assistant secretary of defense for health affairs, asked the services to devise a way to enhance the screening of women of childbearing age, "potentially including pregnancy testing," to prevent pregnant women from getting the vaccine.

The Pentagon in 1998 ordered the vaccination of all 2.4 million members of the active and reserve military to protect them against anthrax bacteria that, when inhaled, can cause death in a few days. It started with those deployed to Korea and the Middle East.

A shortage of doses last year forced a cut so only troops on "special missions," which officials declined to identify, were vaccinated.

Throughout the program, health care workers were supposed to be asking women if they were pregnant to avoid vaccinating those who were expecting. It is unclear whether pregnant women who got the shots were not asked or did not know they were pregnant at the time.

The study also seemed to indicate that some women might have been vaccinated after their first trimester, by which time they would probably have known they were pregnant. This prompted officials to question the data.

Under the program, more than 525,000 service members have received one or more shots. The six- shot regime is given over 18 months, followed by a booster each year.
