Stronger action urged against homeopathic products touted as alternatives to vaccines

Health Canada's recent warning that homeopathic remedies are not an alternative to vaccines doesn't go far enough to prevent the damage the products could do as the country fights off a resurgence of measles, doctors and health policy experts say.

Conclusions The current policy on most college campuses requires verification that incoming students have received two doses of the MMR vaccination. The goal of this policy is to prevent the diseases measles and mumps. A longstanding federal trial against Merck, the pharmaceutical company responsible for making the MMR vaccine, accuses Merck of manipulating data to show the MMR to be more effective against mumps than it is. Recent outbreaks of mumps on college campuses by students vaccinated with the MMR vaccine provides additional evidence that the MMR vaccine is ineffective. Data from the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting...

I’ve suddenly come to realize that a rising political group, the so-called “Alt-Right” (basically nothing more than “…white supremacists who have repackaged the hate and served it up in a more palatable form for human consumption…“) and much of the “Alt Med” movement (including purveyors and proponents of alternative, complementary, integrative, functional, holistic, and assorted other terms for quackery through the years) have a lot in common. Both operate in fact-free zones. Reality doesn’t seem to matter to either of them. Immigrants are objectively not strea...

Conclusions Safe, effective, affordable homeopathic immunizations exist for almost every illness now targeted by unsafe, costly, failed conventional vaccinations. If the goal were to provide protection from disease in a safe manner, why aren’t these safe, inexpensive homeopathic options made available to the public on a large scale? Millions of dollars in healthcare costs would be saved by using a less expensive immunization. Most significant would be the reduction of vaccine-caused diseases including autism, asthma, allergies, autoimmune disorders, diabetes, and cancer. The health of Americans would improve in drama...

This study aims to contribute to the ongoing reflections on tools and indicators of vaccine hesitancy by providing results of a survey on knowledge, attitudes and beliefs (KAB) of parents in Quebec (Canada). We have compared KAB of parents according to: 1) self-reported vaccination status of their child and 2) hesitation during the vaccination decision. Methods Data were collected through the 2014 Quebec study on vaccination against seasonal influenza and pneumococcal infections, a biennial repeated cross-sectional study in the province of Quebec, Canada. This paper presents the results pertaining to parents’ KAB ab...

Conclusion A growing number of today’s children suffer from vaccine damage. Most individuals do not make the connection between health problems and vaccines. When asked about the cause of autoimmune disorders, asthma, allergies, diabetes, learning disabilities, attention deficit disorder, autism, and other common childhood diseases and illness, the majority of health care providers advise patients that the causes are unknown. Doctors, including most integrative physicians, fail to make the connection to vaccines. It takes one moment to permanently damage the health of an adult or child, but t...

Conclusion College campuses vary in regards to their vaccine policies.  The meningitis vaccine is the most commonly required vaccination for all incoming freshmen, based on the recommendations of the CDC. Several other vaccinations are required and recommended, with much variation by individual colleges. Most universities provide a religious exemption for students, but some do not. It is worthwhile to investigate what your university vaccine policies are, in addition to the exemptions that exist for colleges in which your student has an interest.

The duty and responsibility for ascertaining the quality of the consent rests upon each individual who initiates, directs or engages in the experiment. It is a personal duty and responsibility which may not be delegated to another with impunity.(1) Those are the closing words of the first tenet of the Nuremberg Code - informed consent – and make no mistake about it - from the most personal of parental perspectives, vaccination’s a macabre experiment, every time: no parent can be certain that a vaccine won’t permanently disable her child.(2) Egregiously, the administering doctor or nurse - or CVS pharmacis...

Conclusion The first conclusion to draw from these findings is that medium-to-high confidence in vaccines and immunisation programmes is the norm, and vaccine hesitancy and refusals are relatively rare. Nonetheless, even small groups of hesitant or refusing individuals can severely undermine an immunisation programme in certain circumstances, such as when political actors in Nigeria and Pakistan mobilised local boycotts that have had both national and international repercussions. This begs the question, “How much confidence is enough?” Second, the finding that higher confidence in immunisation programmes correl...
