    California Gov says yes to poisoning more children with mercury and aluminum in manditory vaccines, he said. This corporate fascist must be stopped. He went on to say the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is corrupt because they cant solve a problem they helped start. Carrey, who lives in Los Angeles, said he does not oppose vaccines, but is rather anti-neurotoxin. He believes vaccines should be free of chemicals and certain compounds, such as mercury and thimerosal. All we are saying is, 'Take the neurotoxins out of the vaccines.' Make them toxin free. History will show that that...

    In April 2011 a 16-year-old girl came to Dr Deirdre Little's surgery in rural New South Wales asking why her periods had stopped. When Dr Little investigated she found that the girl was in menopause. No cause for this could be found, and usually isn’t in 90 percent of cases of ovarian failure. But this was not just another case; the incidence of menopause developing without cause in a young teenage girl is so rare that there are no figures for it."Susan" asked if her condition could be due to the human papillomavirus vaccine (HPV) Gardasil, because it was after...

    It so happened that I was preparing an introduction to an anthology of the writings of Edmund Burke when I read an article in a recent edition of the New England Journal of Medicine with the title Social Distancing and the Unvaccinated. One of Burkes main contentions, at least according to me, is that politics are, or ought to be, more than the application of abstract first principles to practical affairs: and, as if to prove him right, along came this article. The question was this: if it is permissible for parents to refuse to have their children immunized against...

The California measles outbreak is officially over, but Surgeon General Vivek Murthy urged Elmo to get vaccinated in a video released by the Obama administration Friday. "It's my job to make sure everyone stays healthy," Murthy tells Elmo in the video."Get all your vaccinations in time" to stay healthy, he continued. "Don't worry, Elmo, it's just a little pinch and it's safe. And tell all your friends on Sesame Street to get vaccinated too..."

    The focus of the Obama administration and media in the measles outbreak in the U.S. has been on American parents not vaccinating their children. This overlooks a key issue other physicians and I warned about in May and June 2014: Illegal immigrants coming across the U.S. southern borders in Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and California were bringing with them many invisible travelers. These unwanted guests include viruses, bacteria and fungal diseases the U.S. had eradicated or controlled decades ago. Measles was one of the diseases mentioned then, since it is widespread in parts of the world from which the illegal...

    (English translation) Given the alarming number of persons infected with the disease, Health Secretary Ana Rius declared yesterday that Puerto Rico is facing an influenza epidemic. The decree was released given the number of cases reported in January which totaled 3,124, a figure very close to the one reported for the last six months of 2014. Most of the hospitalized patients have been pregnant women, children under 19, and elderly, [which are] the highest-risk populations. In fact, an 85-year-old woman already died of the disease. Along with the declaration, the Secretary signed an administrative order for health-insurance companies to cover...

    Predictably, the measles epidemic is morphing onto a political hot potato, much like global warming. Prospective Republican presidential candidates are being quizzed about vaccinations and whether or not they should be mandatory. The assumption is that the current measles outbreak is due to low measles vaccination rates, yet no questions or answers have been put forth addressing the far more likely cause of the outbreak -- illegal immigration.Measles, like smallpox, has been eradicated. According to the CDC, “In 2000, the United States declared that measles was eliminated from this country.” This graph illustrates how measles cases dropped dramatically after...

    An infant has contracted Measles at the Santa Monica High child care center, prompting health officials on Tuesday to quarantine fourteen babies younger than a year old. The diagnosis is particularly bad news, since the MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) shot is not administered until a child reaches 12-months-old. As a result of the incident, the Samohi Infant/Toddler Center on the campus of Santa Monica High School has been shut down indefinitely by state health officials.

Last year he finished chemotherapy, and doctors say he is in remission. Now, there's a new threat, one that the family should not have to worry about: measles. Rhett cannot be vaccinated, because his immune system is still rebuilding. It may be months more before his body is healthy enough to get all his immunizations. Until then, he depends on everyone around him for protection what's known...

Citing a 109-year-old Supreme Court ruling that gives states broad power in public health matters, Judge William F. Kuntz II of Federal District Court in Brooklyn ruled against three families who claimed that their right to free exercise of religion was violated when their children were kept from school, sometimes for a month at a time, because of the...

This age group accounted for only about 35 percent of flu-related hospitalizations the last three seasons, officials said at a CDC news conference. "We think one of the reasons flu is hitting younger adults hard is that such a low proportion get a flu shot, even those with underlying conditions like asthma, COPD, and diabetes," said CDC Director Dr. Tom Frieden at the news conference.

    A Texas megachurch connected to a pastor who has openly questioned the benefits of modern medicine has been forced to host vaccination clinics after 21 members of the congregation contracted measles. The outbreak started when a person who contracted measles overseas visited Eagle Mountain International Church in Newark, located about 20 miles north of Fort Worth, Texas. Officials with area health departments said those affected by the outbreak range in age from 4-months to 44-years-old. All of the school-age children with measles were homeschooled, and the majority of those who were infected had not been vaccinated. 'If it finds a...

    Recently immunized people are not more apt to develop Guillain-Barre syndrome Shortly after getting a vaccination, people are no more likely to develop a dangerous nerve-damaging condition called Guillain-Barr syndrome, or GBS, than they are at other times, a new analysis finds. Roger Baxter of Kaiser Permanente Northern California in Oakland, and his colleagues reviewed medical records from 1994 to 2006 of more than 3 million Kaiser members and found 415 diagnoses of GBS. Only 25 of these people had received any vaccine in the six weeks prior to being diagnosed with the condition. None were children. Analyses showed that...

Under the changes, families who refuse vaccinations face losing up to $2,100 per child in benefits.

    More than an hour into last night’s debate, Rep. Michele Bachmann attacked Gov. Rick Perry on the HPV vaccination controversy — or more accurately pseudo-controversy. It stems from an executive order issued by Perry in 2007 that required all Texas girls to receive Gardasil, a vaccine against the most common strains of human papilloma virus, before entering the sixth grade. However, Texas lawmakers blocked that mandate. Some critics argued that the vaccine was too new to have been confirmed safe, while others said that Perry’s order would preempt parental rights or give girls a false sense of security, possibly causing...

    Some may wonder why anyone still wondered about the credibility of an infamous study conducted by Andrew Wakefield and published by The Lancet that purported to show a link between vaccinations and autism.

However, belief in Wakefield’s claims continues, even after Reason addressed the issue in May 2010 once again as...

The mostly Shi'ite nation of Iran is an enemy to Al-Qaida, and al-Shehri predicted that after Israel attacked Iranian nuclear installations, Iran would blame Saudi Arabia - which reports say may let Israel fly through its airspace to attack Iran - and use the opportunity to seize the holy cities of Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia.

People were rushing out to get vaccinated, scared half to death by the mainstream media which was pushing false reports that the swine flu would kill tens of millions of people and that only a vaccine could save you.

The doses are pre-filled syringes intended for young children, ages 6 months to almost three years. Health officials recommend children those ages get two doses, spaced about a month apart. Health officials say it's not clear how many doses have already been given, but they don't think...

Nurses unions have won some early battles against compulsory vaccination. data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that only about 40 percent of U.S. healthcare workers ever get shots for seasonal influenza. mandating that healthcare workers get vaccines is misguided, ineffective and ultimately counterproductive.

Already, there are daily long lineups at many vaccination centres around the country, and many GPs report that they are inundated with calls from nervous patients who either have symptoms,...

New York will be getting only about 23 percent of its anticipated supply of the vaccine for the swine...
