No to vaccines

Paul Richard Haskell-Cooper

ImageClaire’s rant on the subject of vaccination (PN 2626–2627), I call it a rant as at no time does it approach logic or reasoning. Her assertion that people do not trust big pharma but trust the food industry, banking or insurance is absurd and unfounded.

Has she been asleep for the last 30 or 40 years?

Since vaccination was introduced in the 1940s, it has been surrounded by cover-ups, denial, perversion of research and persecution of whistleblowers.

There is no known compound of mercury that is safe to inject into the human bloodstream.

To say that a small amount is OK is untrue especially since no tests are ever done to establish whether the subject (to be vaccinated) may already have a significant or dangerous levels of mercury in their blood.

My experience with vaccines testifies to their danger. In 1984, I had a chance to travel to South America and dutifully subjected myself to the recomended vaccinations only to become seriously ill for 30 hours.

I actually thought I was going to die.

When I later moved to Wales, and therefore had to change my doctor, in my first meeting with the GP, he questioned [me] on many things, commenting only that the vaccine that had made me so ill had since been withdrawn as it had been found to be totally ineffective in providing any immunity.

The only bit I can agree with Claire is that better science education is necessary – starting with the most needy, herself.
