For decades, parents have reported common injuries to their children after vaccination only to be ridiculed and ignored by both the medical community and government officials .
The Financial Post reports:
Vaccines as we know them are on the way out. On the way in are personalized, precision vaccines, created through a new discipline called vaccinomics that promises to protect a higher proportion of the population at far lower cost and without the real and potential harms that mass vaccination programs inflict on some people.
“The old paradigm isn’t working anymore,” Dr. Gregory Poland, head of the Mayo Clinic’s Vaccine Research Group explains matter-of-factly. “It didn’t work with HIV, it doesn’t work with other complex viruses and pathogens.” It didn’t even work with measles, which countries in the west had declared eliminated. Now measles is coming back and it isn’t likely to stop, not until old-school vaccine scientists give up their “cherished dogma,” recognize the many limitations in today’s vaccines and adopt 21st century thinking.
While the prevailing talking point among corporate media outlets, government officials sponsoring whole arrays of pro-vaccine bills and even the medical community, there also exists an entire discipline of specialized study of vaccine adverse reactions.
The Financial Post writes:
“…the vaccine research team at Mayo Clinic — one of the world’s largest, most respected and most prolific — promotes the growing discipline of “adversomics,” which aims to understand the adverse effects that can come of vaccines. The science here is daunting, since the variables that could cause a vaccine to do harm involve “a complex interaction of past exposures and infections, current physical and emotional health, and the individual’s genome and microbiome,” or the countless microorganisms that reside in our bodies. Yet this science is also doable, with some successes already logged.
Adverse reactions to vaccines may be in part “genetically predetermined,” Dr. Poland says, giving examples of different reactions, linked to genes, in various vaccines. “For example, a small percentage of children who get vaccine-induced fever after MMR [measles, mumps and rubella] will develop febrile seizures. I’d like to see predictive tests or preventive therapies that could be administered with the vaccine to prevent these reactions.”
Vaccine injury is neither a myth and the science hasn’t been done to know what the safety profiles are for many, if now all, of the common adverse reactions. Vaccine injuries were troubling enough with repeating types existing that the National Institutes of Medicine (NIH), commissioned by U.S. Health and Human Services, did two comprehensive reviews of all available science, once in 1994 and again in 2011.
The 1994 report evaluated 54 commonly reported serious injuries and vaccination for Diphtheria, Tetanus, Measles, Mumps, Polio, Hepatitis B, and Hib. The IOM located sufficient science to support a causal connection between these vaccines and 12 serious injuries, including death, thrombocytopenia, and GBS. The IOM, however, found that the
scientific literature was insufficient to conclude whether or not these vaccines caused 38 other commonly reported serious injuries, including:
Arthritis, Aseptic Meningitis, Demyelinating diseases of the central nervous system, Insulin-Dependent Diabetes Mellitus, Myelitis, Neuropathy, Residual Seizure Disorder, Sensorineural Deafness, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, Sterility, Transverse Optic Neuritis
The IOM lamented that: “The lack of adequate data regarding many of the adverse events under study was of major concern to the committee. Presentations at public meetings indicated that many parents and physicians share this concern.” Fifteen years later, in 2011, HHS paid the IOM to review the available science regarding whether there is a causal relationship between vaccination and what HHS asserted are the 158 most common injuries claimed to occur from vaccines for Varicella, Hepatitis B, Tetanus, Measles, Mumps, and Rubella. The IOM located science to support a causal relationship with 18 of these injuries, including pneumonia, meningitis, MIBE, and febrile seizures. The IOM, however, found the scientific literature insufficient to conclude whether or not those vaccines caused 135 other serious injuries commonly reported after their administration, including:
Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis, Afebrile Seizures, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Arthralgia, Autoimmune Hepatitis, Brachial Neuritis, Cerebellar Ataxia, Chronic Headache, Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy, Chronic Urticaria, Encephalitis, Encephalopathy,
