Toxicity: The Dose Makes The Poison

POISON

On the left you can see a meme from the Natural News, it’s meant to fear monger; it’s meant to scare you off of taking medications you may need to have a good quality of life, or even survive. In reality, it’s true, yes I agree with the natural news (probably the only time you will see that from me), but not in the way they want me to agree. This meme isn’t scary to me, I agree that you should not take more than the dose that is directed by your health care provider. On the right I have created a meme in the same style. It’s not so scary when you swap out “medicine” for “water”, you see, it’s the dose that makes the poison. Even drinking too much water can kill you. The same is true for vaccine ingredients, and every single other chemical in existence.

“All substances are poisons; there is none which is not a poison. The right dose differentiates a poison…”

Your body recognizes these chemicals the same, whether they are man made or naturally occurring!

There is very little difference in how the body handles these chemicals, whether they are ingested or injected.

The Effect of Vaccination on Infant Mortality Rates

Elyce Powers

According to the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) “The infant mortality rate in the United States showed a consistently downward trend between 1935 and 2000, with the rate declining from 55.7 per 1,000 live births in 1935 to 6.9 in 2000, at an impressive pace of 3.1% per year.”

Meaning, as the number of vaccines on the CDC schedule increased, our Infant Mortality Rate Decreased. Of course, vaccines are not the only advancement to thank for this. I simply want to point out that if vaccines regularly killed babies, we would not expect to see a dramatically lowering infant mortality rate, as we increased the number of vaccines given.

Noted Dramatic Declines
Respiratory Distress (from 13% to 3%)
Pneumonia and Influenza (from 8% to 1%)

***Remember, the IMR decreased from 1970 to 2007, so we know that overall the pie chart from 1970 represents far more deaths than the pie chart from 2007. 

 

The decline of Pneumonia, Influenza, and respiratory distress deaths

A 2014 study found that the Influenza Vaccine reduced flu related Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) admissions by 74% (Flu Season 2010-12). Pneumonia is a complication of influenza, in addition to many other vaccine preventable diseases. Children are now routinely vaccinated with the Prevnar 13 immunization, which protects against 13 different strains of Pneumonia causing pneumococcal bacteria. Additionally respiratory distress can be caused by a number of vaccine preventable diseases, such as Pertussis, Measles, and Diphtheria.
Unfortunately some parents still fear the Prevnar 13 vaccine, primarily due to the spread of misinformation.

Are SIDS and Vaccines Related?
No, in fact a 2007 meta-analysis found that immunizations are associated with a halving of the risk of SIDS.
