This week I read an great article on the Age of Autism website describing Spongebob Squarepants’ fictional response to a recent study appearing in the AAP journal Pediatrics attacking him as a threat to children. The study’s authors somehow ascertained that, based on the how well a group of children did on a series of inconsequential tests, watching the program lessened a child’s ability to do well at school. Of course it wasn’t mentioned that these kids are likely better served by having their minds engaged through a creative cartoon like SBSQ than they are by being confined to a classroom where their imaginations are assailed by boredom, authority and routine.
That aside, I found it odd that watching a harmless cartoon could alter some aspect of a child’s behavior yet a complete alteration and reworking of a child’s immune system through the "miracle" of vaccination couldn't possibly have any negative consequences (even though diseases involving the immune system have exploded just as the vaccination schedule has.) It must be a coincidence and as such no investigation is warranted. As a matter of fact such investigations should be avoided and discouraged because if one of those studies served to cast a negative light on vaccination a panic leading to the deaths of millions would ensue. Confidence in vaccination must be protected at all costs, believe those in charge of the program. And what’s a few million cases of childhood diabetes, asthma, eczema, etc., when the alternative to those diseases is widespread death?
That argument might actually make some degree of sense were prophesies surrounding a devaccination of America true. But of course they’re not. The evidence that millions or even thousands of children would die if any loss of confidence in vaccination would occur does not exist. They are simply unsubstantiated pronouncements generated by those who are inextricably tied to the vaccine industry.
Seventy cases of the measles (a mild childhood illness) in a nation of over three hundred million is called the comeback of a childhood killer. And that’s because of, according to the vaccine establishment, falling rates of vaccination – a claim refuted by the fact that vaccination rates are at all time highs.
Of course those who’s existence is tied to vaccination have no regrets about disseminating false and misleading information when it is in defense of a vaccination program upon which their very existence is dependant. An example can be found in an article describing a few cases of measles in Indiana. This illness, pre-vaccine, was described by the Pan American Health organization as a "minor annoyance."
Fort Wayne’s Journal Gazette reported the state health commissioner’s belief that without him and his public health minions, the measles “could have approached the stuff of unrealistic movie plots.” Amazingly, the movie to which he compared the measles was the recently released Contagion, described in this way on Wikipedia:
Contagion follows the rapid progress of a lethal indirect contact transmission virus that kills within days. As the fast-moving pandemic grows, the worldwide medical community races to find a cure and control the panic that spreads faster than the virus itself. As the virus spreads around the world, ordinary people struggle to survive in a society coming apart.
Additionally, state health department spokeswoman Amy Bukarica was quoted a saying, in response to five cases of the measles, emergency meetings were held and their tone was “serious and urgent.”
Goshen Hospital released a statement stating the “outbreak” could have been “potentially catastrophic”
And finally, Elkhart County health officer Dr. Dan Nafziger concluded the health establishment’s parade of horribles by claiming “the state dodged a bullet.”
So it’s no wonder that studies examining a possible relationship between vaccines and the growing number of diseases affecting the very same immune system upon which those vaccines act have gone largely undone while at the same time Mr. Squarepants is raked over the coals. The difference is simple: the government and the scientific community isn’t in the "talking sponge as TV celebrity" business, it’s in the vaccination business.
