Unavoidably Unsafe

So in my other life (non-autism life) I work in the world of oil spills. I don’t get to do anything glamorous like scrub oil off of swans or pull up alongside oil tankers in my speed boat shouting through a bullhorn. I’m in the back office counting the beans, paying the bills and filing forms with the government. STOP YAWNING – somebody’s got to do it!! But during the daily grind this month, my partner (and hubby) pointed out this opinion piece about “How to Prevent Oil Spills”  by Joe Nocera. The basic premise of the NYT article is that in order to make the Big Oil CEOs care about and curb the damage their companies cause you’ve got to send them to jail. Because if you’ve got enough money, fines don’t phase you one bit. Case in point, BP recently unveiled its 2011 net profits of close to $24 BILLION. This is AFTER paying out $22 billion settling claims and paying cleanup costs for Deep Water Horizon. There isn’t a financial slap on the wrist big enough to have these guys re-consider the way they do business. Yep, going to jail would be the only way to incentivize the industry. Except one thing: it’s never gonna happen. Never. Oil is too important to this nation. 

So what the heck does this have to do with Thinking Moms? Well, it really gets my panties in a bunch when I think about how everyone was completely up in arms about BP two years ago: Do they have enough insurance to cover DeepWater Horizon? Was there negligence involved? Will there be a criminal investigation? I can tell you there are a lot of checks and balances built into the oil industry. There is insurance and re-insurance. Then there’s that whole liability and gross negligence thing. It’s certainly not perfect, but there are things in place to help replace the environment, economic losses and what not. And as much as I’ve witnessed the oil industry mess with the world to benefit themselves, I was not prepared for an even more manipulative industry to become a part of my world. 

What product has grown from approximately $1 billion in revenue in 2001 to $27 billion in 2009?  This product also enjoys 100% liability protection. This same product does not have to dip into revenue to fund a program to pay for injuries it creates (but is not liable for). Do you know what I’m talking about? One guess. Vaccines. Simply put, no pharmaceutical executive is weighing the cost vs. benefit of creating a safer vaccine. Or losing sleep over a “hot lot”. No doctor is worrying about how long the Gardasil vaccine was tested for safety or it’s horrible track record. Not. Their. Problem. Congress, in 1986, erased that worry from their balance sheet. So you’ve got an industry making a TON of money from a product that has 100% liability protection. And that protection extends to the folks that administer those vaccines. Woo hoo!! 

How did this happen?! 

You see, in the 1980s a lot of kids were having adverse reactions to the DTP (diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis) vaccine. Lots of lawsuits were being filed against docs and vaccine manufacturers. This caused the pharmaceutical industry to make noises about pulling out of the vaccine market, and the alarm bells rang that the nation’s health and safety were at risk. Why were vaccine manufacturers getting ready to take their ball and go home? Because vaccines fall into a class of products considered “unavoidably unsafe”. I am not kidding you. This “unavoidable” word comes from the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act itself  “products which, in the present state of human knowledge, are quite incapable of being made safe.”  So they TRIED, but sorry, they just can’t come up with vaccines that are safe enough that their risk department will allow them to sell them. Because a HUGE PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANY sees that even THEY do not have enough money to cover all the expense of fighting and paying injured vaccine recipients. This is an industry that today spends over $200,000,000 A YEAR in lobbyists. Which puts it way ahead of Oil industry in terms of lobbyist expense. 

So the Congress passed the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (that title alone points to fact that vaccines can injure children) in 1986. This releases all manufacturers and administers of vaccines from all liability from any injury caused by a vaccine. Then an interesting thing started happening… 

  

 Hmmmm…. 

As part of this Vaccine Injury Act, vaccine administers had to provide Vaccine Information Sheets (VISs) prior to vaccinating a patient. Parents know these sheets. Betcha didn’t know it was a legal requirement, huh? 

 These sheets are considered a parent’s or patient’s INFORMED CONSENT. Except there are a couple of things I take issue with. First, vaccines, on this sheet, are referred to as safe – not, as above,  where they are classified as UNAVOIDABLY UNSAFE. So unsafe that an entire industry threatened to walk away from producing them if they were not given complete immunity from the fallout. Think about that piece of information the next time someone tells you that vaccines are proven safe. It is not true. I realize that into each life a little risk must fall, but stop telling people that vaccines are completely safe. My second problem with this VIS sheet is that it announces that the chances of having a severe problem from this MMR shot are “extremely small”. I really think that it should tell people that anaphylaxis and encephalopathy are “on table injuries” in the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. An “on table injury” is a vaccine injury that is so common that it is presumed to be caused by the vaccine and is included in a table of more frequently compensated vaccine injuries. By the way, encephalopathy is brain damage. 

So – um – I’m sorry, but I did not see those specific words on that on the little yellow flyer they handed to me prior to giving either of my children one of their dozens of vaccines. Nope, UNAVOIDABLY UNSAFE never made it onto that sheet. This drug — which I am told I am REQUIRED to give my child – is considered unavoidably unsafe. 

Good thing there is a way to compensate folks for these avoidable injuries and death.  It is called the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. From 2001 until 2011 the program has compensated about 2500 families a total of $2 billion. Now, $2 billion might sound like a lot of money, but it really is nothing. It’s about $800,000 per claimant. We all know that $800,000 doesn’t go very far in the care and feeding of a medically fragile individual. Right now the going rate of raising and seeing a child with autism through adulthood is about $3 million. Oh, and that $2 billion? It wasn’t paid by the vaccine manufacturers; it’s paid by the tax payer. The fund is financed by a tax on vaccines. So the purchaser of the vaccine finances this fund. Nice, huh? Even the Oil companies pay into their own fund. But don’t worry fund administrators, most new parents don’t know what encephalopathy looks like until waaaay after the VICP’s statute of limitations have kicked in. By the way, encephalopathy presents as inattentiveness, poor judgment, poor coordination of movements, lethargy, seizures, tremors, twitching, changes in sleeping patterns, headache and stiff neck. Yep, other than crying, not too many of those symptoms would be noticed in a 9 month old… 

So go ahead and boycott BP gas stations because they repeatedly have accidents that spill oil and kill employees — but at least BP can be sued in court. They pay their fines and restitution. Hey, you actually have the right to boycott their stations. And the people in your town don’t point at you and call you dangerous or crazy.  We run around hand waving about oil companies, when there is a bigger product-safety issue facing every single one of us. One in which we do NOT have informed consent about a product that is inherently unsafe, from a manufacturer that we cannot sue, in an industry that has proven itself to be increasingly less and less trustworthy, and is under increasing pressure to create more and more revenue opportunities.  And if we boycott this product we are labeled crazy, dangerous or worse. Much worse. 

What the hell can we do? 

Talk about it.

Share this blog with new mommas. Moms-to-be. Grandmoms-to-be. Moms of Tweens. They NEED to know the truth. Then they can make their own decisions.

INFORMED consent. 

THINK.

    Sadly, many are given the little sheet of paper AFTER they have been vaccinated. This is most likely against the law but in the medical field there is little education to nurses about the importance of that piece of paper and actually going over it with the patient prior to vaccination. Fortunately, as a nurse, I work in an area where I am not required to give vaccines but on the rare occasion when I have and have spent time going over the paper with the patient I have been told that in all the years that they have gotten the flu or pneumonia vaccine that no on EVER explained anything to them. This is a travesty in the medical field that must change. Thank you TMR for your information. Please continue your important mission and I will continue to inform and educate to the best of my ability.

    I appreciate this post. I think if the companies gave better informed consent people would just think a little before just doing something because it’s what you are supposed to do. People would decide if they want to vaccinate in leu of the risks. It would allow a much more deliberate decision to be made. As far as the docs that give these vaccines I have to believe that they really do believe they are doing the right thing. In my opinion it’s the American of pediatrics that decides what the schedule will be and the docs follow. I’m sure if they don’t follow they might lose their certification from the AAP.

  12. Tasha says:

    Whats weird is my son was diagnosed with encephalopathy before he was diagnosed with autism at age 2!

  13. Emily says:

    I absolutely respect your primary point – no, pharmaceutical companies should not be exempt from litigation when the stakes are so unbelievably high. That being said, I’m concerned about your careful manipulation of inflammatory language. An example: the phrase unavoidable unsafe or products which, in the present state of human knowledge, are quite incapable of being made safe does not mean that vaccines cannot be given safely. Rather, it indicates that there’s no way to guarantee that every single dose of vaccine will be safe – and of course there isn’t, just as there is no way to guarantee that every item of food that ends up on our plates will be free of bacteria. You refer to the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (that title alone points to fact that vaccines can injure children) – of course they can. You are injecting (or otherwise introducing) an often foreign substance into a human being. To assume that the process is without risk would be foolhardy.
    Do not confuse my words with criticism of the extremely important points that you’ve made. I work with children with autism every day and I assure you, I support your cause. You are not dangerous, and you are not crazy. However, when you resort to scare tactics instead of simply reporting the facts – which are often frightening enough on their own – your power is diminished. Reclaim it.

    • luvbugtmr says:

      I worked hard to try to stay away from scare tactics and point out facts that most people may not be aware of…the assumption that not every dose of a vaccine can be given safely, that there is a vaccine court that pays damages done by vaccines to the tune of billions of dollars so far, etc.

      Not scare tactics. Truth. Something for folks to think about. The fact that you accept the facts listed above, shows that you are thinking about it. Many people don’t even consider “unavoidably unsafe” when they walk into a doctor’s office.

      I will continue to work to keep scare tactics out of my blogs -but sometimes the facts are just darn scary in themselves.

  14. Mark says:

    We read a LOT of articles about vaccinations and the problems they cause, and this is one of the best we’ve ever come across.

    Our own business is selling organic pet health products (specifically, to help treat Canine Parvo), and we’ve been telling people for years about the issues with pet vaccines such as Parvo, Bordetella and Rabies, and why we don’t believe in vaccinations, and we get a lot of abuse because of it.

    Articles such as yours lend further ammo to our arguments, so thank you once again for posting it.

    • luvbugtmr says:

      I had a very frank and open discussion with our vet about vaccinations. How they affect cancer rates and overall health of the pet. How best to delay, how to comply with regulations while considering our pets’ health.

      My pediatrician is very, very uncomfortable with these discussions and is very ill-informed – I usually pass a stack of research onto him (5 years ago in paper, now in a thumb drive).

      Interesting…

  15. Anna says:

    This was quite informative. I have a 20 mo. old that has yet to receive a single vaccination. I was hoping you might provide guidance on where I can read about this Act and some of the history pertaining to it. I want to be well read so that I can adequately defend my position and encourage others to follow suite.

  17. Lynn Mulder says:

    Great article, very well written!

    I’d like to add that most of the diseases we’re already on the decline when vaccines first came out, many, many years ago. Thus, the vaccines were not given when the diseases were first becoming a problem, or even at their peak. So how is it we can attribute vaccines to the eradication of these diseases? There simply is no way of knowing if a vaccine ever works!

    • mg says:

      yes I have heard that many times. they say that improvements in sanitation is the main contributor to the decrease in diseases.

      • Mary_M says:

        Devils Advocate here:
        But now many people are not getting the vaccines and the diseases are on the rise again–if sanitation is even better than before, how do you explain this?

  21. Meaghan says:

    Thank you for this article. When it comes to our health, and the health of our children, we have a right to be informed. Vaccines, like most medical advances, have both benefits and risks. The risks are serious, true. But so are many of the diseases that vaccines were intended to prevent. Diphtheria: 10% death rate. Complications include myocarditis, temporary paralysis, and kidney damage. Tetanus: 25% death rate without treatment; less than 10% with treatment. Complications from measles include encephalitis (1/1000 compared to 1/1 million for the MMR vaccine). Death occurs in 1/3000 in industrialized countries. While I agree that there are serious risks associated with vaccines, including autism, encephalitis and even death, I’m not sure I want to go back to a world where these diseases are commonplace. Parents need to be informed of the risks of both diseases and vaccines, of indications of adverse reactions to vaccines, and of the options available to them in order to make the best decisions for themselves and their families.

    • Thinking Moms' Revolution says:

      I do agree that vaccination is personal – and it should be a personal decision based on your familyhealth history, personal health history and beliefs. That right is slowly being eroded from us as Nation.

      I will also say that if we only rec’d MMR, DTaP and maybe polio – the landscape of childhood illness might look a lot different.
      ~LuvBug

    • Mary_M says:

      I agree–we are seeing an upraising of diseases that had been eradicated around the world: MMR, small pox, polio, etc.
      I believe that a parent should be given fully educationally paperwork when they leave the hospital with their newborn regarding the diseases we vaccinate against and the numbers both of you (Meaghan & LuvBug) listed…the real risks of the diseases and of the vaccines (including the “rare but possible” side effects”) and what those risks really are (ie–encephalopathy = brain damage).
      I was interested to see how many more vaccines are now given–is it because they give smaller doses over a longer period of time of MMR and others when they used to just give one dose?
      And I definitely think the paperwork should include the terms “unavoidably unsafe” because it is true, some child, somewhere, is going to have an adverse reaction. But not every child is.
      If parents were given this information at the time of birth, it gives them time to study and really think over their decisions.

    • Jane says:

      But what are our options then? I feel there aren’t any if they are to choose from getting the disease or getting adverse and irreversible reactions to the vaccines that are to prevent the disease. I feel that it isn’t that clear cut. Those vaccinated still can get those illnesses along with the risk of the side effects and a weakened immune system from all the chemicals in their bodies. Those unvaccinated can strengthen their bodies through nutrition and low stress lifestyles to either not get the disease or get it and let their bodies successfully handle it. But, what are our options really, if we choose to let our bodies work as they are made, we are prevented from schooling and work and ostracized in our communities. I wonder, I have not seen firsthand, when those families do vaccinate and their child is negatively effected, are the ostricizers still around?

  25. Roxanne says:

    Perhaps the VIS should be legally required to state this: The chances of your child suffering some type of injury to the vaccine are about 54%, and there is a certain period of time for the parent to notice the injury and file a claim, otherwise the claim will be rejected.
    It might also be helpful for the VIS to state: Note to parents, the National Vaccine Injury will do everything they can to disprove that your child has in fact been injured. Do you really want to take the risk now?
    Now THAT’s informed consent!
    Have a happy day,

    This is BRILLIANT!! Thank you , LuvBug!

  28. Shawn Siegel says:

    Luv yer article, Ms. Bug. As we roll up our sleeves and investigate, it becomes obvious all too quickly that the vaccine industry proved itself untrustworthy long ago – we just weren’t aware of it, because the media is one of its arms. The evidence abounds, for instance, that so-called eradication of major disease is often accomplished simply through changes in the diagnostic parameters – considering the neurological assault, a parlour trick with disastrous results for the youth of the nation.

    And the hubris! A doctor may consider provision of a VIS an indication of informed consent, but the egregious lack of full disclosure of all relevant information about possible adverse reactions, including the fact that our most valuable metric for estimating actual vaccine risk – VAERS – is dysfunctional, and the lack of a patient signature line, prove otherwise.

    You cannot eliminate risk from life, but the risks associated with vaccination far outweigh the risks of disease.

  29. there’s more informed consent when you vaccinate your animals, than with our children.

    our vet labeled our puppy a “non-vaccinate” when he had a horrible vaccine reaction {nearly died}.

    why not our kids?

    when my son had a 104.5 fever, a huge bump at the site, and a rash: my pediatrician thought “no big deal”…

    pure and simple: it’s greed. the almighty dollar.

    given that 54% of today’s children suffer from one of the big As…it’s simply heartbreaking…

    our western pediatrician still asks if i plan to vaccinate in the future. i laughed in her face. really, you said my kid DID NOT HAVE AUTISM at 18 months. we gave the MMR and then poof! he was gone…

    now, my son, at age 4.5, still has yet to gain skills he “lost” after his 2 year old shots.

    these real vaccine inserts should be given to parents PRIOR to the shot. those pointless forms like the MMR you had listed where always given AFTER.

    like on page 11 of the http://www.fda.gov/downloads/BiologicsBloodVaccines/Vaccines/ApprovedProducts/ucm101580.pdf

    that lists the following:

    Adverse events reported during post-approval use of Tripedia vaccine include idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, SIDS, anaphylactic reaction, cellulitis, autism, convulsion/grand mal convulsion, encephalopathy, hypotonia, neuropathy, somnolence and apnea. Events were included in this list because of the seriousness or frequency of reporting.

    Had I seen that before, I would have never vaccinated my children.

    i’ll be forwarding this article across all of my social media and to every parent i know. by far, one of the most poignant comparisons to the oil industry.

    • Thinking Moms' Revolution says:

      My cats’ doctor had a longer and more reasoned conversation with me about vaxes than our ped ever has. She talked about cancer rates and immune system disfunction. It was an eye opener.

      I am sorry about your child. My son has yet to re-acquire some of the consonant sounds he lost after a seizure at around 18 months of age. But he is getting there.

      Just keep talking about it. Even if folks are skeptical or disagree, it may push them to do a little more research or think for themselves. ~LuvBug

      • mg says:

        I had vaccinated my first cat twice. First at 6 months old then again 1 year later. After that I stopped vaccinating because she was an indoor only cat.

        Just after she turned 5, she stopped eating and was losing weight. Took her to the vet and got some tests done. Found out she had cancer. While they were doing her ultrasound (which showed that her liver and spleen were enlarged) her back right femur snapped in two. Took her back and had them do an xray on her leg and found out she had a tumor in her femur bone that caused the bone to deteriorate so badly that it broke from them simply holding her down during the ultra sound.

        After that happened I realized that in the last year she was no longer jumping up and down on higher windows and surfaces, just sticking to lower level surfaces. Even though I had realized this for a while, I didnt think much of it. I wish I had taken her to the vet to be xrayed as soon as I saw her doing that.

        Though I dont know for sure, I believe that the cancer started in her leg and spread to the liver and spleen. I had to put her to sleep 7 months ago, but just a few weeks ago I made the connection between the cancer being in her leg that they stuck the vaccines in. I really think that the vaccines started the cancer growth.

        I have a tremendous amount of guilt for ever getting her vaccinated. I feel it was my fault. She was my first pet and I loved her so much, more than I ever imagined I could love an animal and I only had 5 years with her, she didnt have nearly a long enough life.

        I dont have any kids but if I ever do, I dont plan on vaccinating. I will home school them if I have to. Thank you for this blog. Lets everyone keep pushing this issue until it is out in the forefront!

    Thank you for your article. Our 3 year old has no vaccines. The “no liability” and the Guardasil issue here in Texas. I had been friends with the girl who was the poster child and when she started leaving stuff out in her emotional appeal to Gov. Perry and people of Texas, I stepped back and said, “Whoa! Something is MAJORLY wrong with this picture.” I then read that there is zero liability for the manufacturer and doctors offices, it all falls on the parent who is now damned if you do and damned if you don’t. We stopped. My oldest got all of her shots until she was three when we made the decision not to vaccinate. She had minor damage to her liver that had to be healed and we are dealing with ADD and horrible behavior, times of violence. Of course non of this is due to the vaccine although our chiropractor found vaccine remnants in her liver. Some of her behavior is food related. We are having to detox her system of very high levels of mercury, nickel and lead. She is six, why should she have such high levels of mercury in her system. Yes, all is coincidence but when my baby caught Pertussis, we treated it although a major PITA, she got over it rather quickly. My mom got it too and was angry with me (along with most of my family since I was so irresponsible because vaccines are 100% safe) that she could have been protected had Jenna been vaccinated.

    Dang LuvBug!! You go!! Very well written I must say. Only one little reminder (which I know you know about), the oil industry does have Superfund. Which they pay on every barrel of oil purchased/traded etc. and that cost is definitely passed on to the consumer. But I get what you’re saying and I’m hoping more and more moms (and dads) realize they have rights when it comes to vaccines. Thanks for sharing your heart and expressing your thoughts so well!

    • Thinking Moms' Revolution says:

      Yes, I’m sure that cost gets passed onto the consumer in some way (it is not a superfund for water in navigable waterways tho – superfund is “landlocked” abandoned toxic dumps). The funds are also funded by fines and cost recoveries from Responsible Parties who spill oil. Will we ever see a VICP that is funded by fines slapped on a pharmaceutical company?

      Can you tell I need to get more often…?

  35. Taximom5 says:

    Brilliant post, LuvBug!

    One of the many PharmaShill lies we read on forums and comment sections of articles is that “there really isn’t much profit in vaccines.” I know, that’s absolutely insane…but newbies actually BELIEVE this unless shown proof.

    So can you post a few links showing this meteoric 8-year rise from $1 billion to $27 billion in revenue?

    That would be a good addition to the growing list of proof we have of ALL the lies–from the pharmaceutical industry, from the medical industry, from the government.

    And if anyone here is good at strategic planning, I’d love to see a plan of where we can take all the proof of the lies–internet, of course, but also newspaper ads, maybe? Billboards?Letters to congressmen? Letters to the nurses’ union? I just saw a study that nurses are turning down vaccines for themselves, based on safety concerns (though they seem to have no problem injecting them into other peoples’ babies). University presidents? (Go above the pharmaceutical chain of command in medical schools!)

    Other ideas??

    • Thinking Moms' Revolution says:

      I will post the market research I found showing the growth of the market a bit later, running late today- just wanted you know I saw this…The Canary Party is working closely with health freedom issues.

      From the market research I saw, traditionally it is “accepted” or “believed” (no data unless you buy a $2000 market report) that the mainstay vaccines (i.e., childhood MMR, Polio, DTaP) are not big money makers. The newer vaccines are bigger money makers. HPV is a big money maker ~ hence the huge push. The new ‘growth market’ of vaccines is the “adult” market. Pertussis vaccines for Grandma so she can hold her new grandbaby…

    • Mary says:

      Maybe this can help you. It’s the cdc’s price list for all the vaccines. If you google search cdc vaccine price list, 1986 another doucment will pop up. the rise in price for childhood vaccine is dramatic.
