Great Vaccine Controversy? WTF?
Everyone knows that vaccines are safe, protect us from diseases, save lives and are necessary—right?
If you ask the pharmaceutical industry, your druggist or government, they would of course say yes, and anyone who claims otherwise is a wack job or misinformed or confused by those crazy anti-vaxxers.
But, if you ask the parents of the millions of kids who have been harmed by vaccines, then the answer is not yes.
If you ask some nurses, doctors, neurologists, immunologists, epidemiologists and government scientists who have actually studied the issue objectively then the answer is not yes.
The vaccine issue is contentious and complex and under the influence of a massive and well funded industry that seeks to convince the public of something that is not entirely true to ensure that children are injected with potentially harmful substances regardless of the risks.
Is there a conspiracy to make people think that vaccines are needed and perfectly safe? According to some scientists who are in a position to know, yes, there is.
Some whistle-blowing scientists at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) have tried to expose the corruption of the CDC and how it has lied about vaccine safety but have been shouted down by a myriad of voices, some well intentioned, some not.
Donald Trump is supposedly going to convene a vaccine safety commission to be headed by Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a leading environmental lawyer who has studied vaccine safety issues for many years. But the effort seems to have stalled for now.
It is not our contention that all vaccines should be avoided but that the issue needs unbiased analysis.
In this issue of Traveling Minds we also cover other important topics, including bad cops, school lunches, Bolivia's coca production, public access to laws and more. Publisher
