New Hepatitis Vaccine Recs Can Devastate Newborn's Health
The newly released 2002 immunization
schedule encourages the routine use of hepatitis B vaccine for all infants before hospital discharge to
- Safeguard against maternal hepatitis B testing
errors and test reporting failures
- Protect neonates discharged to households in
which hepatitis B chronic carriers other than the mother may reside
- Enhance the completion of the childhood
The annual "Recommended Childhood
Immunization Schedule" of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the
Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) of the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the American Academy of Family Physicians
(AAFP) is issued in January of each year.
Vol. 109 No. 1 January 2002, pp. 162
Folks I am outraged. We need to take
action now. These recommendations are inexcusable.
There is no possible logical
recommendation for this action. All
of these arguments are fatally flawed.
If you are new to the site these may
sound like lunatic ramblings of some quack, but before you come to that, or a
similar conclusion, I challenge you to examine the facts.
The central fact, and the one that
helps to explain these insane recommendations, is that the maker of hepatitis
B vaccine, Merck, makes one billion dollars a year from this vaccine.
A billion dollars a year goes a long
way toward influencing public policy.
The group that is pushing this through
is called The Hepatitis B coalition. Part of the Immunization Action
Coalition, this group was started by a $750,000 grant from the CDC. It is
supported by the World Health Organization, World Bank, Rockefeller
Foundation and ongoing funding from Smith-Kline, Merck, Aventis and Johnson
Let us not forget that it has been less
than three years since the federal government asked the drug companies to
out of this vaccine, and they still haven't complied.
I have seen many dozens of children who
were given this vaccine on the first day of life and subsequently developed
autism. Others, like Michael Belkin's daughter, weren't as likely and died
immediately after the vaccine.
Michael is a successful Wall Street
Financial analyst with his own company, and has testified to Congress on this issue and
regularly forwards news health stories to me.
Well the drug companies have replaced
the mercury with aluminum, which is another potent neurotoxin that has been
associated with Alzheimer's.
But who knows what damage it will do to the immature central nervous system
of a one-day old infant.
Folks, hepatitis B is about as
difficult to catch as AIDS. Namely, you nearly always need to have blood or
sexual contact of some sort. That is why the main risk factors are IV drug
abusers and those who engage in sex with multiple partners.
Hepatitis Vaccine Safe?
The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting
System (VAERS) was developed by the government to report vaccine reactions.
Many experts believe that only 10% of the adverse reactions are reported
though as reporting is not mandated by law.
Even with only 10% of the problems
being reported there were nearly 25,000 VAERS hepatitis B reports from July 1990 to October 31, 1998, showing
439 deaths and 9673 serious reactions involving emergency room visits,
hospitalization, disablement or death.
The presence of findings such as brain
edema in healthy infants who die very soon after receiving hepatitis B
vaccine is profoundly disturbing, especially in view of the frequency of
neurologic symptoms in the VAERS.
make any sense?
Hepatitis B Vaccine Effective in Newborns?
Vaccine derived immunity is thought to
be short lived. Between 30-50% of vaccinated individuals lose their
antibiodies within 7 years.
Up to 60% of persons who initially
respond will lose detectable antibodies within 12 years.. So that means that
these vaccines will provide little to no protection to the real risks of
acquiring hepatitis B, promiscuous sexual behavior and IV drug abuse.
make any sense?
Children Are Hurt or Helped By Hepatitis B Vaccine?
Hepatitis B is a rare, mainly
blood-transmitted disease. In 1996 only 54 cases of the disease were reported
to the CDC in the 0-1 age group. There were 3.9 million births that year, so
the observed incidence of hepatitis B in the 0-1 age group was just 0.001%.
In the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS), there were 1,080 total
reports of adverse reactions from hepatitis B vaccine in 1996 in the 0-1 age
group, with 47 deaths reported.
Let us put this in simpler terms. For
every child with hepatitis B there were 20 that were reported to have severe
complications. Let us also remember that only 10% of the reactions are
reported to VAERS, so this means:
Traditional medicine is
harming 200 children to protect one from hepatitis B.
Does this make
Is a Hepatitis B Infection?
The numbers speak for themselves.
Approximately 50% of patients
who contract Hepatitis B develop no symptoms after exposure.
However, the exposure ensures that they
will have life-time immunity. An additional 30% develop only flu-like
symptoms, and again, this group will acquire life-time immunity.
Of the remaining 20% exposed to
Hepatitis B will develop the symptoms of the disease. 95% of this 20% will
fully recover, with life-time immunity.
than 5% of people who contract Hepatitis B will become chronic
carriers of the infection.
The numbers get even smaller: of that
5%, nearly 75% (or 3.75% of the total exposed) will live with an asymptomatic
infection and only 25%, (or only 1.25% of the total number of people exposed)
will develop chronic liver disease or liver cancer, 10-30 years after the
acute infection. (Hyams, K.C. (1995) Risks of chronicity following acute
hepatitis B virus infection: A review. Clin. Infect. Dis. 20, 992-1000.)
Think of that in terms of probability:
the possibility of contracting the disease is exceedingly difficult for
children and only 1.25% of those that are exposed will actually develop the
most serious complication!
This type of a "protecting the
needle in the haystack" medicine is absurd at best, dangerous at worst.
make any sense?
Safety Studies Have Been Done On Hepatitis B Vaccine?
A manufacturer's representative was
asked in a 1997 Illinois Board of Health hearing to show evidence that the
hepatitis B vaccine is safe for a 1-day old infant. The representative
"We have none. Our studies were
done on 5- and 10-year-olds."
--The Congressional Quarterly, August
25, 2000, pg. 647
One would think that these would be
mandatory, but they are not. All that is required is to show efficacy, (i.e.
that the vaccine stimulates an antibody response after it is give), not
In most other industries the fraud
represented here would lead to criminal charges.
make any sense?
Please tell every pregnant woman you
know who about this issue. They need to know the facts BEFORE they are in the
hospital and have time to make an informed objective decision. If they are still
convinced their child needs hepatitis B vaccine, beg them to make sure their
child does not receive the vaccine as a newborn. Delay the vaccine until they
really are at a possible risk, like late adolescence.
I am not asking much here. Only some compassion for the helpless. If you have
ever seen the agony of families who are struggling with caring for brain
injured children you will know what I mean.
I have shown dozens of times in this newsletter, drugs that are thought to be
safe are pulled from the market after they have killed dozens or hundreds of
people. I am hopeful that hepatitis B vaccinations in newborns will be
stopped. Medical science will have to recognize the truth sooner or later.
Folks, drug deaths pale in comparison to the devastation in lost lives that
is resulting from implementation of this hepatitis B recommendation.
You can play a large role here. Most of all us did not have a chance to make
a difference in the 9/11 tragedy, but nearly everyone of us can help protect
the precious brain cells of a newborn.
Contact every pregnant woman you know
immediately. Save a life.
God Bless you in your efforts to protect the future of our civilization.
Note To Physicians:
I am a member of the American Association of
Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS). This is a group of over 10,000 US medical
doctors, and most of us have reached the conclusion
that the head of the organization, Dr. Jane Orient, has about this issue.
To the extent that the physician simply
complies without making an independent evaluation of the appropriateness of
the vaccine for each patient, he is abdicating his responsibility under the
Oath of Hippocrates to:

my patients according to my ability and my judgment and never do harm to
