Edward Jenner had vaccinated his oldest child Edward Robert Jenner (1789-1810). The child lived until 21 years old, leading a sickly life. He also most likely vaccinated himself and his wife, but he refused to vaccinate his youngest child Robert Fitzhardinge.(1797-1854) The youngest unvaccinated child lived until nearly 60 years old. Edward Jenners wife, Catherine, lived only 5 years beyond the vaccinated child early death. Between the 5 years of death of his son and then his wife, Jenner lived with great anxiety and rarely left his abode. It is recorded in this book that Jenner, a few years after the death of his wife, too, began to have episodes:
“In 1820, Jenner had a fainting fit in his garden. He was picked up insensible and carried to his house. …From this attack he never thoroughly recovered. The state of his feelings is best described in his own words, which are quoted from a letter written (by Jenner) May 21, 1821. “My nerves still vibrate too readily when touched by unnatural sounds. Nature built the brain and nerves, but glasses, plates, knives, forks, and spoons are not her manufactory. The sharp sounds elicited by the sudden contact of these bodies when forcibly brought together produce an effect like the splash from a stone forcibly thrown into a pool of smooth water. The propensity to feel this and the violence of the shock is in proportion to the length of the interval between one shock and another…..The clatter of a dinner table is the worst of all, from all the clickings of knives, forks, and spoons….”

Back Story as Way of Introduction
While on one of many journeys in our efforts to help our son heal from autism, we found ourselves in the Washington. D.C. area to visit Dr. Stanley Greenspan, a child psychiatrist who.specialized in autism. While walking to his office, we came upon the cast and crew of the TV show, The West Wing. Actor Bradley Whitford was filming a cab scene. Sam ran over to the actor and said, “I know you. You’re on The West Wing,” and then he promptly averted his eyes. Mr. Whitford graciously got down on his haunches and aligned his eye contact with our son’s averted gaze, making visual contact with him. I noticed his focused connection, thinking that he must know a child with autism. Sam and the actor had a brief interchange, we took a picture, and off we went to the doctor.
After that, every time we watched the show, Sam would chant: “Bradley Whitford, he’s our man. If he can’t do it no one can. Bradley Whitford, Sis boom bah, Bradley Whitford, rah rah rah!” It became a new Sam ritual to do the chant whenever the show came on—one of Sam’s many rituals, as rituals and sameness are big things with kids with autism.
Fast forward thirteen months, we were back in D.C. for a follow-up appointment. The West Wing crew, which apparently only went to D.C. twice a year for location shots, was there again. I said to Sam, “Okay, kiddo, what’ll it be: The Capitol Building or Bradley Whitford?” Hands down, it was the familiar.
We stood out in below-freeing weather, waiting. I told the guard who Sam was waiting for and when Bradley emerged, the guard said, “Mr. Whitford, I have a little boy waiting here for you.” The crowd parted like the Red Sea and we ended up meeting the actor again. He remembered Sam from the time before and asked us, “Do you live around here?” I said, “No, we live in Oakland, California,” explaining that we were here again for a doctor’s appointment with an autism specialist. He said, “Wow! What are the odds?” Then, he told me that he and his wife were attending an autism fundraiser in our area the next month and invited Sam’s dad and I to be their guests. He gave me the number of his assistant to make the arrangements.
Up to that point, my husband and I had only gone on two or threes date since Sam’s diagnosis. With every cent we had going into therapies, dating was not in the budget. But we jumped on this and a friend came over to watch Sam. For once, we wouldn’t be splitting the usual PB&J alone on the front porch and calling it a night out.
At the event, I shared with Brad my experience of Sam going from a normally progressing boy to his regression into autism after a routine childhood vaccine, something I had learned not to talk much about publicly due to the McCarthy-like vilification towards people who are perceived as “anti-vaccine.” Brad responded by saying that his children’s pediatrician had told him, “Not vaccinating is a form of child abuse.” There you go. In that moment, the story in this bool (a fictionalized version of what we, as many families, have experienced) flashed through my brain. I went home and wrote it as a screenplay in nine days. I pitched it to HBO, but they said, “Oh, we’ve already done autism with Temple.” Really? But, I didn’t pursue it further. That was 2002, fourteen years ago. I was too involved in saving my son to pursue it further, at that point.
A new article in the journal Pediatrics is calling on health professionals to stop saying that breastfeeding is natural, arguing that doing so gives the impression that natural parenting practices are healthier. The authors have started a public campaign to end the positive use of the word natural, claiming that it is associated with such “problematic” practices as home birth, homeschooling and the rejection of GMO foods, and that natural parenting movements are interfering with vaccination efforts.

DOCTORS ARE BEING PAID BIG $FINANCIAL INCENTIVES$ BY DRUG COMPANIES TO PUMP YOU FULL OF PILLS AND VACCINES!
By now, I think we all know that many doctors have a special relationship with drug companies; one that benefits both parties. Doctors are often reimbursed financially for reaching “prescription quotas” and for getting a certain percentage of their patients to be vaccinated.

The Harvard Crimson is reporting that the University is now experiencing a “mumps outbreak.” The caveat, of course, is that the outbreak is amongst a “well-immunized” student body. Being that this is the second mumps “outbreak” being reported on college campuses around the nation and in both events, the recipients of mumps were vaccinated, you would almost think we would see the light. That is however not the case, in fact, the light is apparently a bulbless socket. According to The Harvard Crimson, affected students, are being relocated to other housing units.
Administrators at the College, Harvard University Health Services, and Cambridge Public Health Department are working to contain the spread of mumps and care for students who have been affected by the virus by relocating them to isolated housing for an extended period of time.
“We have officially an outbreak of mumps in this population,” HUHS Director Paul J. Barreira said. “It’s happening with students who are well-immunized, so it’s a breakthrough infection. So the task is to get the population to act in ways that minimizes the spread of the virus.”
Is the term “breakthrough infection” the most polite way of saying that the original two required MMR vaccines failed? The students are each required to be housed privately and use private bathrooms. HUHS Director Paul J. Barreira was asked if he felt a third booster should now be required. However, he responded saying there is no real evidence that would be effective. In this case, Harvard is merely considering the prior two MMR vaccines to be that of failures. Though I am happy to see that they aren’t attempting to push further vaccines into the mix as a reactionary solution (as we know, pharmaceuticals much enjoy reactionary solutions when it comes to vaccines).
The Leicester Anti-vaccination league was formed in 1869. It numbered 19 persons. it grew to such an extent that, whereas in 1867 over 94 per cent of the children born were vaccinated, in 1897 only 1.3 per cent of the infants were vaccinated.”
it wasn’t the pro-choice-safer poison-scardy cat people that won their freedom. IT WAS THE ANTI-VACCINATION group who weren’t afraid to stand up and and say I am anti-vaccine and stand their ground.

13 Things You Don’t Know About Polio
1. A pesticide common in the 1800’s was called Paris Green. A green liquid because it was a combination of copper and arsenic or lead and arsenic. Some of the most toxic substances known to mankind.
2. This pesticide worked by causing neurological damage in the bugs, causing organ failure.
I am reading a book which includes a history of Montel Williams. All of a sudden, the narrative reads: “A freak medical accident during his last year (at the U.S.Naval Academy) ruined Montel’s plans to return to the Marines after graduation. He was one of one hundred seniors who received the wrong dose of an immunization. His severe reaction landed him in the hospital for two and a half weeks and cost him the vision in his left eye.” (From the book, “The Common Thread”). Then, it talks about Montel’s MS!!!!! So, I got on the internet and found an interview with Montel. I am posting this salient part:
WebMD Live Events Transcript
Montel Williams faces challenges everyday in his role as an award-winning talk show host. But none compare with the challenge of living day-to-day with MS – multiple sclerosis. He joined us on March 8 to talk about his fight against MS.
The opinions expressed herein are the guests’ alone and have not been reviewed by a WebMD physician. If you have questions about your health, you should consult your personal physician. This event is meant for informational purposes only.
Welcome to WebMD Live, Montel. Thank you for joining us today. Our audience has a great number of questions for you.
Thank you so much for having me and giving me this opportunity to share what really is my personal journey with MS. I’m hoping the people that are on to ask questions recognize that my book Climbing Higher isn’t just about people who suffer from MS, it’s about people suffering from any chronic deadly illness and the people who love them.
How old were you when you had your first symptom, looking back?
Like so many of us, and I believe the number is somewhere around 45% to 50%, you can check this through your doctor, our initial symptoms are first in the vision or visual acuity. About four months before I graduated from the Naval Academy in 1980, and it just so happened to be coincident with my precommissioning inoculations (before you graduate from the Academy you have to receive all your immunizations to travel around the world), coincident with my diphtheria and typhoid shots, for whatever reason, it triggered my first MS bout. I lost 80% vision in my left eye and was put on medical hold on the military because they thought I would be blind in one eye. My commission was held up when I graduated, because at that moment I was not qualified to become a naval officer.
I then saw doctors from the Naval Academy, Walter Reed, Bethesda Naval Hospital and Johns Hopkins, none of whom could determine the etiology of my loss of vision. No one at the time even speculated MS, because if you look back, this was 1980 and back then, the disease was only associated with Caucasian females of northern European descent, and here I was a 22-year-old African-American male and at that point 100% in great shape. MS was the farthest thing from any doctor’s mind.
President Obama’s appointee just sailed through the approval process, and has been approved as the next FDA Commissioner. What does this mean now that Robert Califf, known for having financial ties with Gambro, Regeneron, Gilead, AstraZeneca, Roche and other companies, but who is also equally in equity positions in four medical companies? It means the FDA has officially been bought by Big Pharma. Continue reading What Does Obama’s Appointee for Next FDA Commissioner Mean for Us? Agency Now Officially Owned by Big Pharma
