Are vaccines safe? It’s a loaded question, and many people prefer not to even discuss it because arguments about it can become very heated. It’s hard to believe that there can be such dramatically conflicting views on something that science has proven again and again – that vaccines are unsafe – but the corporate-run media repeats this lie so often that many people simply take it as gospel. There’s also the fact that sites like Google and Facebook like to ensure people only see news stories that support their beliefs rather than challenge them – beliefs that were created in the first place by truly fake news.
You don’t have to look very hard if you want evidence that vaccines are bad. The first place you could head in your quest for the truth is the Department of Health and Human Services’ very own Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System, or VAERS. This is the site that Americans can use to report adverse vaccine events to health authorities. Around 30,000 VAERS reports about vaccine injuries and deaths are filed every year. It’s a shocking number on its own, and it’s likely only a fraction of the true number of injuries considering that many people don’t use the system or even know it exists.
More than $3 billion has been paid to families who suffered from vaccine damage or vaccine death, and Congress has even set up a court devoted to vaccine damage cases. How is that even necessary for something that is as safe as the media claims? Perhaps the most infuriating part of this, however, is that the vaccine industry is granted legal immunity in such cases, so pharmaceutical firms are not liable for the damage. They just have to pay out settlements and then keep on selling their toxic vaccines and raking in the profits.
Interestingly, the CDC admits on its own website that vaccines contain harmful ingredients. On their “Ingredients of Vaccines Fact Sheet,” they admit that toxic substances like formaldehyde, monosodium glutamate (MSG), and thimerosal are commonly found in vaccines. Yes, that’s right: They admit that they contain formaldehyde, which HHS has admitted causes cancer. They also own up to vaccines containing the neurotoxin MSG. Most people won’t even touch food that contains this ingredient, much less inject it into their body knowingly. Perhaps the biggest offender, however, is the methyl mercury compound thimerosal, which is toxic to the brain and kidneys.
Let’s look at another controversial issue the mainstream media is fond of reporting on: gun violence. Nobody wants to see children shot at school or anywhere else, and there’s no doubt that something needs to be done about it. But while the mainstream media focuses on this very real problem, let’s take a look at how many children under 17 are treated for firearm injuries each year. In 2012, the number was 5,800. And how many vaccine injuries are reported in a year? According to VAERS, there were 45,762 cases just in 2016 – some of which were life-threatening.
Kids are being pumped with more than 50 doses of vaccines before their sixth birthday, and this has somehow become “normal” and accepted thanks to the efforts of the corporate-run media. The reach of Big Pharma is tremendous, with the vaccine market being worth nearly $24 billion in 2016.
Money talks, and the media has advertisers to please, so you’re not going to hear the true story there any time soon. It would be interesting to see, however, what they’d be saying about vaccines if Trump was promoting them and they didn’t have to worry about appeasing Big Pharma. Something tells us they’d be singing a very different tune about vaccine safety if that were the case.
